I want to dedicate this article to Martin Luther King, Jr. and to his fight for FREEDOM and JUSTICE!

Martin Luther King was born January 15, 1929 and assassinated April 4, 1968.  He fought hard against racial segregation and discrimination and I know the fruit of his labors have made a huge impact for today’s civil rights.   Dr. King was a man of God and was a man for God’s people.  Not only did he “talk” about these important issues, he “stood”, “sat”, “marched” and was “imprisoned” for his pursuits to see his country and country men FREE. In 1964 he became the youngest man to receive the Nobel Peace Price for his courage to stand against these injustices.  Like I said, he earned this high award by more than just talks and empty promises, but by the physical change that his acts brought to the nation.  Dr. King was given a gift from God to rally the people together around a “DREAM” for a better country and a greater future.

Well I was not apart of Martin Luther Kings Jr.’s generation, but I can stand here today and tell you that we need to use his roof as our launching pad.  In Martin Luther Kings, “Dream” speech, he said,” I have a dream that one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal.”  I stand by these words from a wise man, a man that I know would be standing next to me on this issue of injustice that we face today…ABORTION.

Abortion attacks the very foundation of everything that Martin Luther King fought for and is tearing down our nation today.  Martin Luther King said, “Now is the time to make justice a reality for all of God’s children.”  Well where was the justice for the 48 MILLION babies aborted since 1973?  Their blood is crying out right now, who is going to speak for them? Who is going to fight for them? Our President’s not, our judges haven’t, our doctors aren’t…then WHO WILL?  (Please keep our President, Judges, and Doctors in prayer over this issue and others like it)

I’m not going to drag this issue out, it’s been debated long enough…it’s time we see a change!  Here are some things to think about on this issue, from the Creator of all things.

Whoever sheds man’s blood, by man his blood shall be shed, for in the image of God He made man.Genesis 9:6 (We are created in the image of the Creator, how can we defile Him with the killing of His own image?)

So you shall not pollute the land in which you are; for blood pollutes the land and no expiation can be made for the land for the blood that is shed on it, except by the blood of him who shed it.Numbers 35:33 (I find it insane that this nation is more concerned about car pollution and global warming…when this clearly states that what’s truly polluting our land is the shedding of man’s blood)

Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, before you were born I set you apart. Jeremiah 1:5 (How can you say a fetus is not a human?  This clearly states that He knew us before conception!)

This will be written for the generation to come, that a people yet to be created may praise the Lord.” Psalm 102:18 (A people yet to be created, like you and me and billions more)

So please stand with me on this issue as we honor and respect Martin Luther King, Jr. today for being a man that would not back down for the injustices of the people.  As Dr. King said, “It would be fatal for the nation to overlook the urgency of the moment.”, “And as we walk, we must make the pledge that we shall always march ahead. We cannot turn back.

I will be posting some links and videos soon that touch further on this subject.

In His name,

Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.

declaration

This Fourth of July I celebrated with family, friends, tri tip, and two war movies (Saving Private Ryan and The Patriot). We set aside some time to reflect on our freedoms that we are thankful for.  Mine was, “Being thankful for the freedom to choose freely to marry one women for the rest of my life without it being forced upon, like in some countries.”

I am also thankful to live in a nation that was founded by believers of Jesus Christ! Their Faith was strong and their fight for Justice was fierce. I can not imagine life any other way, but it saddens me to see how far we have strayed from the path that we were placed on. It is an honor and a privilege to live in this Country, but many have taken this freedom for granted by dismantling values and deserting beliefs. Our nation’s founders were God fearing men that knew their strength was in Him! Deuteronomy 10:20: “Fear the LORD your God and serve Him. Hold fast to Him and take your oaths in His name.” Too many leaders of this Country have lost the significance of taking Office and why it is done with their right hand on the Word of God!

This life of mine is endowed by my Creator and my Independence is found in Him. He has giving me freedom that I am honored to be able to share in. Every Tuesday Night, I have the Freedom and Liberty to pursue Happiness…that Happiness is found in Him. So I freely pursue Him as a Right of being an American. The great thing about that is , it does not stop there! I pursue Happiness everyday, He is my Beloved and I am His! So I want you to know that Life is from Him, Liberty is from Him, and true Happiness is from HIM! Let’s bring 1776 to 2009 and truly understand what this Declaration of Independence stands for.

The Declaration of Independence was written and signed in a time when freedom was rare and tyranny was rampant.

It says:

“In every stage of these Oppressions We have Petitioned for Redress in the most humble terms: Our repeated Petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A Prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a Tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.”

So yes, it is good to be humble, but there comes a time when WE must stand for what is right and fight for our freedom! The Enemy is not fit to rule free people so may we no longer compromise our freedoms but may our Nation stay the course and HOLD FAST TO HIM in Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness!

Happy Fourth,

Patrick Judah
