The Abortion Battles of June 1992
Proverbs11:21 Though hand join in hand, the wicked shall not be unpunished: but the seed of the righteous shall be delivered.
This is a continuation of my postings about disasters hitting America in conjunction with national sin and rebellion against the Holy God of Israel. I want everyone to see the overwhelming evidence that America has been under judgment since 1987, and the Bible is the very word of God with full authority.
God’s Final Warning to America
This month turned out be one of the most intense for spiritual warfare in American history. The month witnessed massive pro abortion and homosexual activity along with God answering with corresponding judgments. It was just as a war taking place, if people had spiritual eyes to connect what was happening.
The month started with one of the largest pro-abortion rallies ever. It took take place on April 5, in Washington, DC. and was called, “March for Women’s Lives.” A crowd estimated at 500,000 marched for abortion rights. The Washington Post reported that the rally was one of the largest political events in the city’s history. This rally was also festive, and tens of thousands of the marchers were homosexuals and lesbians. The rally was to protest the upcoming Supreme Court hearing of the Planned Parenthood v. Casey case. This hearing was to take place later in the month.
The Casey case was the result of Pennsylvania’s passage of the Abortion Control Act of 1989, which Planned Parenthood had challenged. The Abortion Control Act contained provisions that a woman had to wait 24 hours before obtaining an abortion, and she had to be provided with information about the development of her unborn child. There was much speculation in the major news sources that the Supreme Court would use this case to overturn legalized abortion.
On April 20, 1992, Operation Rescue began a 10-day event called “Spring of Life” in Buffalo, New York. This event was to try and peacefully close the abortion centers, so babies would not be killed. Operation Rescue was a nonviolent, Christian organization that used peaceful means to block the entrances to abortion centers. This is done in an attempt to persuade mothers to keep their child.
This was a national event and not limited to Buffalo as activists came from all over the country. The pro-abortion supporters also came from all over the United States to insure that the abortion centers would stay open. This was a national event that received national attention in the media.
Three days later, on April 23, the United States Supreme Court heard the Planned Parenthood v. Casey case.
While Operation Rescue was taking place in Buffalo and the court was hearing the abortion case, a powerful 6.3 magnitude earthquake shook southern California. This was the fourteenth most powerful earthquake this century to hit California. The epicenter of this earthquake was in a place called Joshua Tree, an isolated desert area, so the damage was minimal; however, it shook most of the southwestern part of the country. The Joshua Tree earthquake actually occurred the same day as the Supreme Court heard the abortion case. This was not a coincidence.
On April 25, 1992, during a fierce counter protest in Buffalo against Operation Rescue, a 7.2 earthquake hit Northern California. The Cape Mendocino earthquake was the sixth most powerful last century. The earthquake was in a remote section and again not much damage was done; however, huge sections of the Northwest were rocked by the quake’s power. First the Southwest was rocked by an earthquake, then just two days later the Northwest was hit by an extremely powerful quake.
A newspaper reported the fierceness of the pro–abortion supporters and homosexuals in their counter protest. The paper reported:
“Only the rows of Erie County sheriffs and Buffalo police prevented violence as abortion supporters roared themselves into a frenzy with bone-chilling chants.” One of the chants was, “Kill the Christians”.
The counter protest was led by homosexuals and lesbians who sang such vile songs as:
“God Is a Lesbian, God Is a Dyke” to the tune of “My Country ‘Tis of Thee,” and “There Is No Room in My Womb for You and Me” to the tune of “This Land Is Your Land”.
These people were openly mocking God and viciously degrading unborn children in the womb!
In addition to the battles in Buffalo on April 25, a huge homosexual march took place in Washington, DC. It was called, “March on Washington for Lesbian, Gay and Bi Equal Rights and Liberation”, with the crowd estimated at 300,000. The marchers had seven demands and one is very interesting. It called for redefinition of the family! It was the full promotion of the “Ordinances of the Amorites”, which triggers God’s judgment. This demand would come to fruition in just 20 years as by 2012 marriage was redefined in numerous states. The demand follows.
“We demand legislation to prevent discrimination against lesbians, gays, bisexuals and transgender people in the areas of family diversity, custody, adoption and foster care and that the definition of family includes the full diversity of all family structures.”
A warning-judgment did hit that day as a 7.2 earthquake hit Northern California along with the 6.3 on the day of the abortion case!
Also during the 10 days of Operation Rescue’s Spring of Life, the jury in California was deliberating the verdict of four Los Angeles police officers in the Rodney King beating. Operation Rescue ended on April 29, 1992, with fierce opposition from pro-abortionists and homosexuals. The violence in the womb continued. This very same day, April 29, the jury made its decision to acquit the police officers and in Los Angeles, the Rodney King riots immediately erupted and the city went up in flames.
The rioting lasted for six days and resulted in looting, arson, assaults and murder. This resulted in $1 billion in damage along with 53 deaths and thousands injured. Finally, the California National Guard and the US Marines ended the unrest. It was as if the violence in the womb for six days was transferred to the streets of Los Angeles.
The month started with a massive, festive pro-abortion rally in the nation’s capital, and ended with Los Angeles, one of America’s largest cities, up in flames. Two massive earthquakes, plus the worst rioting since the Civil War, took place during this 10-day event to save the lives of the innocent unborn. The two earthquakes occurred while homosexuals and pro-abortion supporters mocked God and His people. This was not a coincidence. These quakes shook the western section of the nation. An earthquake occurring on the day of the Supreme Court hearing was also not a coincidence.
The timing of the earthquakes and the rioting were clear warning–judgments, that the killing of innocent children in the womb and mocking of God, have America on a collision course with the Holy God of Israel.
Revelation 22:20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
