PURPOSE and VISION
The Repentance for Bloodguilt outdoor worship service is a gathering of born-again Christians assembled to join in prayer, praise, worship and the declaring of God’s Word as we:
1) Repent and ask the Lord’s forgiveness for America’s corporate bloodguilt. Bloodguilt is upon all of us, and upon our city, upon our state, upon our nation, and upon all its inhabitants (Jeremiah 26:15), especially the Church (Deuteronomy 21:1-9, 2 Chronicles 7:14), which has failed to love her unborn neighbors as herself, and which has failed to love God enough to uphold the sacredness of His Name (Leviticus 20:3), because of the well over 340,000 unborn children who have been murdered by surgical abortion alone on South Carolina soil since the wicked and unconstitutional Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision in 1973, and probably several times more that number aborted chemically by “birth control” that is abortifacient (including “birth control” pills). Their shed innocent blood pollutes the very ground of our city and state and nation (Numbers 35:33), and cries out to God for divine vengeance and recompensation (Genesis 4:10). God is even now turning America over to oppression and tyranny (Psalm 106:37-44).
“Therefore was the wrath of the LORD kindled against His people, insomuch that He abhorred His own inheritance. And He gave them into the hand of the heathen; and they that hated them ruled over them. … Nevertheless He regarded their affliction, WHEN HE HEARD THEIR CRY: " Psalm 106:37-44 [ WHEN will Christian Americans cry ??!! ]
2) Beseech the Lord, to end completely the sin of shedding innocent blood in the city of Columbia, in South Carolina, and in America, not by our might and power, but by His Spirit, as HE has already been doing, having already closed at least four abortion centers in the Columbia area, six other abortion centers in our state, and over 1,000 abortion centers in America (http://www.ldi.org/ ). (Ps. 47:7,8; 1 Timothy 6:15; Ps. 110:1; Matthew 16:18) Pray the Lord of the harvest will send out born-again Christian labourers into His harvest who will seriously both pray and act to END “abortion” – including those who will be “witnesses unto [Christ]” (Acts 1:8, KJV) at the gates of hell outside Satan’s three Temples of Child-Sacrifice in South Carolina (in Greenville./Cola./Chas.).
REPENTANCE => PRAYER + PRESENCE + PERSONHOOD => REVIVAL => REFORMATION
Matthew 3:8 – “fruits meet for repentance:”
- Praise God for closing 10 major abortion centers in our state, leaving the three major abortion mills in SC remaining.
