Pastor Ed On the Repeal of Roe v Wade

Today is a historic day for ALL Americans. June 24, 2022, will go down in history as the date the Supreme Court struck down/repealed the January 22, 1973, decision known as Roe V Wade, which gave women in the United States a fundamental right to choose whether to have abortions without excessive government restriction and striking down a Texas’s abortion ban as unconstitutional. You are more than likely rejoicing about the decision or extremely angry about it.

I’ve received so many texts, emails, and messages about what went down today, that I feel led to respond with my thoughts about what today means for our country.

My first thought is that we need to pray about this subject, and the events that are likely to go down in the days and weeks ahead.

That said………

Believing every child has the right to life inside or outside of the womb, I believe that one of the biggest travesties of my lifetime is that 63,000,000 + babies have been legally murdered in the United States.

What happens next?

The abortion laws will go back to the states and not the federal government. That’s the simple answer. However, along with that answer comes the question of how do people react?

I would hope that those who are on the pro-life side of the occasion would behave in a Christ-like manner. There are many things left to do to make sure that babies are safe in their mother’s womb. Being antagonistic or causing unnecessary strife makes the things that still need to happen even more difficult.

For those of you who fall on the opposite side of how I believe, I would encourage you to speak out against those who plan on or have been committing violent acts since the leaked news of today’s events.

You might say, but your side did horrible things in the years past. My reply to that would be that I have always been against those who choose to do violent acts in situations like this. Violence and vandalism have no place no matter what side of any equation there may be.

I would also ask that if you haven’t done so, please explore your local crises pregnancy centers. You may be surprised at what amazing work that is taking place for those who are in crisis.

Today, I am elated that this horrible black eye on our country has started to be blotted out. There is much work left to do, and without God’s intervention, there will be some serious conflicts taking place.

WallBuilders Celebrates an Anniversary and a Birthday

Join with friend of the ministry/podcast David Barton, founder and president of Wallbuilders, to celebrate both the birthday of the US Army and Flag Day.

https://wallbuilders.com/

Today is the anniversary of two significant days in American history: the birthday of the US Army, and Flag Day!

The Army was created by the Continental Congress on June 14, 1775. George Washington was elected Commander-in-Chief the next day and issued orders for the military, including one declaring: The blessings and protection of Heaven are at all times necessary…The General hopes and trusts that every officer and man will endeavor [to] live and act as becomes a Christian Soldier defending the dearest rights and liberties of his country.

The Army has continuously been recognized throughout American history. Such as by Frederick Douglass who reminded the nation: We must never forget that the loyal soldiers who rest beneath this sod flung themselves between the nation and the nation destroyers. [I]f the Star-Spangled Banner floats only over free American citizens in every quarter of the land…we are indebted to the unselfish devotion of the noble army who rest in these honored graves all around us.

General George Marshall also spoke about the United States’ mission during WWII:We are determined that before the sun sets on this terrible struggle, our flag will be recognized throughout the world as a symbol of freedom on the one hand and of overwhelming force on the other.

Flag Day commemorates June 14, 1777 when the Continental Congress passed a resolution establishing the look of the first national flag. The first Flag Day celebration occurred in 1885 as a school celebration in Wisconsin. The idea of honoring our flag spread across the country and President Woodrow Wilson eventually issued a 1916 presidential proclamation recognizing Flag Day. Since then, generations have continued to celebrate the American flag.

Today, let’s celebrate the American Army and all our military who so ably defend our flag, our God-given freedoms, and God-blessed nation!

“K-9 HERO AWARDS” PREMIERES THURSDAY, MAY 12 AT 5PM ET

ON GAC FAMILY

Special Presentation to Honor America’s Top Performing Police and Military K-9 Heroes

NEW YORK, NY – April 28, 2022 – GAC Family will honor America’s top performing Police and Military K-9 Heroes in an all-new special “K-9 Hero Awards.”  Hosted by Larissa Wohl alongside US Army Veteran and certified K-9 Trainer, James Craigmyle, “K-9 Hero Awards” will premiere on GAC Family on Thursday, May 12 at 5pm ET.  The special presentation is created in partnership with Project K-9 Hero, an organization dedicated to providing assistance for our nation’s heroic working dogs. 

“K-9 Hero Awards” showcases the incredible achievements and devoted service of Police K-9s, Military Working Dogs, Fire Department K-9s and Search and Rescue K-9s at the Local, State and Federal levels.  K-9 Heroes are crowned in seven categories: Patrol Apprehension, Narcotics Detection, Tracking and Trailing, Firearms Detection, Search and Rescue, Accelerant Detection, and Explosives Detection.  Award winning K-9s in each category will receive free medical coverage for life from Project K-9 Hero. 

Project K-9 Hero is a national nonprofit 501c3 organization, whose mission is to provide medical care, food, and death benefit assistance for our nation’s retired Police K-9s and Military Working Dogs. Project K-9 Hero also helps K-9s who need a home after their service, through rehabilitation and adoption. Project K-9 Hero is actively engaged with Members of Congress to pass a law that grants federal funding towards the medical care for retired working dogs through the K-9 Hero Act.

“K-9 Hero Awards” is part of GAC Family’s broadening commitment to quality, pet-centric programming that raises awareness for important causes supporting animal welfare in America.  In February, GAC Family announced “Great American Rescue Bowl” a new special slated to air in 2023 which will showcase kittens, puppies, cats, and dogs available for adoption at shelters across the country.

“K-9 Hero Awards” is produced for GAC Family by Pleasant Street Entertainment.

It’s Time for Conservatives and Liberals to Find Things to Work on Together

Biblically speaking, we are very possibly living in the last days. With that being the case, don’t you think it’s time for Conservatives and Liberals to work together on issues that are for the betterment of the world and in particular the United States of America?

The 2 videos here show fitting examples of how people who disagree on many things (in the case of Hannity and Penn most things) can work together and get things done.

The Lord has been working on me about this – I can gripe and complain about issues that I 100% believe I am correct about, but instead of doing all the griping and complaining, why don’t I just wrap my arms around someone who needs Jesus as their personal Savior and show them real Christian love.

I love what Mike Pence says to the young man who asks him hypothetically what if one of your children came out as gay, how would you respond, what would you tell them? Pence says I would look them in the eye and tell them I love you.

As a person who has a gay son, I had that exact opportunity that this hypothetical question presents. My response has always been I love you as much today as the day you were born.

Blessings,

Pastor Ed

We Encourage You To Help Support Relief Efforts For Ukraine

On Tuesday’s Boston Prayer and Share Hour, I said that I would look into some ways that followers of Ed Boston Ministries and others could assist in helping with the situation in Ukraine.

I’m sure there are many outstanding ministries and organizations doing remarkable things, but after doing some research I believe that my best recommendation is for the two organizations shown below, Samaritan’s Purse and Operation Blessing.

Amy and I as well as The Father’s House church will be making donations to both Christ centered groups.

First here are the donation links and following are links to their websites where you can find out more information on what they are doing in Ukraine.

About Samaritan’s Purse: They have deployed a 30-bed Emergency Field Hospital to UkrainePhase 1 of our Tier 2 Emergency Field Hospital deployment began Friday, March 4.

Our DC-8 cargo plane based in Greensboro airlifted the initial stages of the field hospital along with Disaster Assistance Response Team (DART) members, including doctors, nurses, and logistics and set-up personnel. Once the plane lands in Poland, the field hospital will then be transported overland to Ukraine where it will provide specialized trauma care to people impacted by the conflict.

The field hospital is equipped with an operating room (up to 15 surgeries per day), an ICU, an emergency room, a pharmacy, and it has its own water and sanitation system. As many as 100 patients a day can be seen at this hospital, and it will be operated by more than 50 staff (medical and non-medical). The situation on the ground is fluid and changing rapidly, but the hospital could be operational early next week.

About Operation Blessing:

**Right now, Operation Blessing teams are responding to the crisis in Ukraine, providing emergency relief and supplies to families and individuals in need including food kits, bottled water, and even generators. Please join us in supporting these families in desperate need today.**

In many of these cases, man’s inhumanity to man can feel overwhelming and gut wrenching. These are some of the darkest days in the lives of people caught in the fray, yet you can reach out to them with hope and be a light in that darkness.

It’s only through your support that Operation Blessing is able to reach out with critical humanitarian aid in times like these. You can provide relief such as food, medical care, clean water, shelter, mattresses, generators, encouragement and even trauma counseling.

This is all vitally important not only to care for their bodies, but also their souls. In this way, you let them know that someone sees their terrible plight, and that you care.

Horrifying Update for Christians – From ACLJ

Christians are running out of time. TODAY we’re taking urgent action.

Every day, 16 Christians are killed for their faith across the globe.

Afghanistan was just designated the most dangerous country for Christians in the world by a leading persecution watch group. In Nigeria, Christian pastors are beheaded. In India, Christians are jailed and discriminated against. In Pakistan, our affiliate on the ground is representing Christians on death row for their faith. The persecution is unbearable.

And in Afghanistan, the Taliban is going door to door looking for Christians to kill and unmarried women to take captive. Christians are hiding in their homes fearing what the Taliban will do to them – a genocidal persecution.

Our contact on the ground in Afghanistan reports that “men, women and children are subjugated, beaten, and executed for their beliefs that differ from the tyrannical Taliban.”

We are taking emergency action TODAY, submitting 5 critical written submissions directly to the U.N. on each of these countries – some of the absolute worst persecuting nations. Dying Christians need our voice. As we file at the U.N. TODAY, we urgently need your support.

Let’s Read The Bible Together This Year

Click on the chart and then click a 2nd time to enlarge the photo.

I’ve never used this Reading Plan before, but it seems interesting that you are getting multiple parts of the Bible at one time instead of just straight through. Also, you can start at any time and be right with everyone els.

Let’s start this on Sunday, January 2nd.
