He Was A Serial Abortionist, Until The Holy Spirit ‘Arrested’ Him! 

He Was A Serial Abortionist, Until The Holy Spirit ‘Arrested’ Him! 

Dr. John T. Bruchalski

When Dr. John T. Bruchalski began performing abortions as part of his OB-GYN training, he felt troubled.

The Virginia doctor thought he was helping women, but he slowly began to realize that he was doing the exact opposite.

After three powerful encounters with the Holy Spirit, Bruchalski said he stopped aborting unborn babies and returned to the Catholic faith of his childhood, according to The Christian Post.

Now, he runs the Tepeyac Family Center in Fairfax, Virginia, one of the only all pro-life OB/GYN health care practices in the nation.

Bruchalski recently shared his conversion experience as part of an effort to expand pro-life medical practices. He encouraged pro-life advocates to begin providing more holistic health care to pregnant and parenting mothers.

“Abortion is considered good medicine today. The health care system has adopted abortion as a good item,” Bruchalski told the news outlet. “… the missing piece has been doctors standing up and saying ‘We want to help women with real comprehensive and building of health care.’”

Here’s more from the report:

Bruchalski used to perform abortion procedures before having three powerful encounters with the Holy Spirit and stopped doing them. He also ceased prescribing contraceptives and told his hospital colleagues he would not do artificial reproduction. By the end of his residency, “many of his fellow residents had followed his lead and ceased performing abortions,” his website testimonial notes.

“If you can show women that they can get through the difficult time, whether she’s with insurance or without insurance and then that doctor’s practice or that health care facility practitioner then they partner with all these incredibly wonderful pregnancy centers and social services and even those on the other side [of the abortion debate], we will show you how to do a perinatal hospice so they don’t have to end the life of a child,” Bruchalski said. “We can actually make children welcomed, women healthier, families stronger by just providing excellent health care.”

Last January, Bruchalski joined a group of health care professionals in Washington, D.C. to launch the Pro-Women’s Healthcare Centers initiative.

It encourages pregnancy resource centers to become certified to offer high-quality medical services and help accessing government assistance. The group envisions pregnancy centers offering basic preventative health services, STD testing, cervical cancer screenings, breast exams, mammograms or mammogram referrals, prenatal care, childbirth assistance and post-partum care. Centers that meet the consortium’s official guidelines will be certified under the program.

If we can use charity, competence, and excellence with standards, then the 50 to 80 percent of women who intrinsically do not want abortion on demand, they can trust these people across the country rather than ending up in a tight spot or a difficult medical situation and then not knowing what your doctor would do,” Bruchalski said.

A few other pro-life groups have been promoting a similar idea. Stanton Healthcare has been expanding across the country as a life-affirming alternative to Planned Parenthood. Founder Brandi Swindell said their facilities offer free ultrasounds, pregnancy confirmation, uterine and ovarian diagnostics, STI testing and treatment, prenatal care and postnatal follow-ups and, possibly in the future, mammograms.

Lent And Valentine – Matters Of The Heart

Lent And Valentine – Matters Of The Heart


LENT AND VALENTINE- MATTERS OF THE HEART
It is not a coincidence that Valentine Day and Ash Wednesday are coming on the same day. It is rather providential because it reminds us about the deep connection between love and the heart. The love celebrated on Valentine’s Day is a matter of the heart. The celebration of Valentine is often adorned with heart shaped symbols, cards and crafts. Interestingly, the symbol of Valentine is not just a heart, but a heart pierced by the cupid, the ancient god of love. This wounded heart depicts a broken heart.
Likewise, the Scriptural readings of Ash Wednesday remind us that true religion is also a matter of the heart. The prophet Joel called on the people to return to God with their whole heart (Joel 2:12); The Apostle Paul appealed to the hearts of the Corinthians to be reconciled with God (2 Corinthians 5:20). Jesus emphasised the role of the heart in a relationship with God. He teaches the importance of performing good works and religious obligations without showmanship. He says we should give alms, pray and fast in the secrecy of our hearts so that God who sees our hearts will reward us accordingly (Matthew 6:1-6, 16-18).
True religion requires an honest heart and a change of heart. This was the central message of the prophets for many centuries. At different points, people misunderstood religion as a demonstration of symbols and rituals and they gradually forgot the significance of those symbols and rituals. It became common for religious people to play to the gallery by displaying popular acts of piety that will make them appear deeply religious. The danger of acting to the gallery is the tendency to disconnect religion from a sincere heart and becomes an outward appearance that leaves the heart out.
One of the ways in which people of the Old Testament expressed grief, despair, sorrow as well as remorse and contrition was by tearing their garments. This symbolic act is a sign of penitence and repentance. Jacob expressed sorrow and despair by tearing his clothes and putting on sackcloth to mourn for his beloved son Joseph (Genesis 37:34). When Ahab repented from going after idols, he expressed his remorse as he tore his garments and put on sackcloth over his bare flesh (1 Kings 21:7).
The symbolic action of tearing garments as a sign of repentance soon began to be abused by the people. The people began to dramatise this act without an iota of inward repentance. This was the reason why Joel challenged them by saying, “Tear your hearts and not your garments” (Joel 2:13). The prophet realised that it was easier for people to tear their garments than their hearts. Long time ago, David mentioned that the Lord is near to the broken hearted (Psalm 34:18 and that a sacrifice which is acceptable to God was a broken spirit and a contrite heart (Psalm 51:7). 
Tearing of garment without repentance is similar to making a confession to God without an act of contrition that comes from the depth of the heart. Why will Prophet Joel ask the people of Israel to tear their hearts? The many love stories of heart breaks and tears are usually caused by someone else or any unpleasant situation and are hardly self-inflicted. True love comes with tears and wounds. Any one who ventures into an honest and wholehearted love must be willing to tear his heart and to experience discomfort and pains. I wonder why some people say love is wicked. Maybe because love makes a wise person appear as a foolish person, and makes a person with good sight appear as a blind person; maybe because love makes a miser unusually generous; maybe because it makes people restless and can cause anguish and pain. 
Surely, love is a matter of the heart – it gives the heart joy and causes pain to the heart. On Valentine Day we celebrate the power of selfless love. Here is a picture of what a Valentine heart looks like, It is:

“Patient and kind…it bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all thing” (1 Corinthians 13: 4,7).

On Ash Wednesday we express our love for God through the spiritual exercises of prayers, almsgiving, and fasting. It is a time when we make sacrifices of subduing the pleasures of the flesh in order to purify the soul. Yes, Lent is a matter of the heart as it affords us the opportunity to renew our hearts. In his Lenten message for 2018 Pope Francis instructs us to guard our hearts against getting cold in the love of God and neighbour. Let us pray that during this holy season, God will enkindle in our heart the fire of his love.
I wish you a very fruitful Lenten season.

US Melania Trump Invites Pastors To Spiritually Cleanse And Exorcise The White House From Voodoo Rituals Performed By Past Leaders 

US Melania Trump Invites Pastors To Spiritually Cleanse And Exorcise The White House From Voodoo Rituals Performed By Past Leaders 


US First Lady Melania Trump demanded the White House be spiritually cleansed prior to moving in, a pastor recently stated.


Pastor Paul Begley In a February 2 interview on The Weekend Vigilante with Sheila Zilinsky, claimed Melania’s desire to “completely exorcise” the White House may have sparked Trump’s own religious fervor.

“When the president allowed 40 pastors to come into the White House and anoint him with oil and lay their hands and pray on him—seven times he’s done this—that is unheard of,” Begley stated.

“At least he is humble enough and recognizing that he needs God enough that he keeps bringing them in for the prayer. And I’ve got to say this, it might have started with the First Lady.”


Begley continued: “The First Lady – in that five hours when the Obamas and the Trumps went down to the Capitol and Trump was being sworn in as the 45th president of the United States – Melania Trump said to her husband, ‘I’m not going to go into that White House unless it has been completely exorcised.’ 

Melania said, ‘You’ve got to get all of that out of there and send in some preachers and priests to go in and cleanse the White House or I will not spend one night in it.’” President Trump reportedly agreed.

“During that five hours when they were ripping out carpets and changing drapes, there were people in there packing up every idol. The only thing that was left, Sheila, was one cross on one wall. They cleansed the White House. They had people in there anointing it with oil and praying everywhere.”


Begley added that previous administrations had left demonic symbols at the estate, and elaborated on the Clinton’s fascination with Haiti and voodoo:

“[A]pparently during the eight years when Obama was there, and maybe even some of the presidents before him, there were all kinds of idol gods and images and all kinds of artifacts in there that were demonic, even some of the stuff from the Clinton era because they were really tied in with the Haitians.”


“I can tell you, you can read the “Serpent and the Rainbow” story and find out just how much Haitian witch-doctor influence was on Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton’s lives,” Begley added. “They constantly went back there. They spent their honeymoon with a witch doctor. Who does that?”

The Washington Post reported that in 1975 the Clintons held their honeymoon in Haiti.

“They toured the old hotel where the writer Ernest Hemingway once stayed and visited a voodoo high priest dressed in all white,” The Post reported, adding the Clintons were a “Haiti-obsessed family.”


The former President’s book, My Life, also contained passages claiming the Clintons “watched the arrival [of] the spirit, people putting burning torch over their body, walking on hot coals without being burned while other grabbing live chicken and biting their head off,” according to the Haiti Observer.


In her book, What Happened, Clinton also comments that her frustration made her want to craft voodoo dolls of members of the press and Congress “and stick them full of pins.”

Pastor Begley says while the Trump’s acts may seem overboard, they are necessary in the arena of spiritual warfare.

“This was a major spiritual – it might sound like overdoing it, a little excessive,” he said, “but you’ve got to take the seat of authority when you go into spiritual warfare. You start with the spiritual authority and then it goes on from there out. I think that that might have been where this whole thing began, in a mighty way of exorcising the demons.”


According to CNS News, Pastor Begley based his accounts on sources inside the White House who declined to be named.

President Trump delivered remarks at the 66th annual National Prayer Breakfast Thursday where he affirmed, “Our rights are not given to us by man; our rights come from our Creator.”


Melania is the first Catholic First Lady since Jackie Kennedy.

God Is Great! A Testimony From A Medical Doctor Who Worked In Africa 

God Is Great! A Testimony From A Medical Doctor Who Worked In Africa 

I wept when I read this. God is great!

I found it so touching 

Isaiah 65:24 :- “Before they call, I will answer.” 



This is a testimony written  by a doctor who worked in Africa. 

  

One night I had worked hard to help a mother in the labor ward; but in spite of all we could do, she died, leaving us with a tiny, premature baby and a crying two-year-old daughter. We would have difficulty keeping the baby alive; as we had no incubator (we had no electricity to run an incubator). We also had no special feeding facilities. 
Although we lived on the equator, nights were often chilly with treacherous drafts. One student midwife went for the box we had for such babies and the cotton wool that the baby would be wrapped in.   

    

Another went to stoke up the fire and fill a hot water bottle. She came back shortly in distress to tell me that in filling the bottle, it had burst (rubber perishes easily in tropical climates).  “And it is our last hot water  bottle!” she exclaimed. As in the West, it is no good crying over spilled milk, so in Central Africa it might be considered no good crying over burst water bottles. They do not grow on trees, and there are no drugstores down forest pathways. 
“All right,”  I said, “put the baby as near the fire as you safely can, and sleep between the baby and the door to keep it free from drafts. Your job is to keep the baby warm.” 


The following noon, as I did most days, I went to have prayers with any of the orphanage children who chose to gather with me. I gave the youngsters various suggestions of things to pray about and told them about the tiny baby. I explained our problem about keeping the baby warm enough, mentioning the hot water bottle, and that the baby could so easily die if it got chills. I also told them of the two-year-old sister, crying because her mother had died. 
During prayer time, one ten -year-old  girl, Ruth, prayed with the usual blunt conciseness of our African children. “Please, God” she prayed, “Send us a hot water bottle today.  It’ll be no good tomorrow, God, as the baby will be dead, so please send it this afternoon.” 



While I gasped inwardly at the audacity of the prayer, she added, “And while You are about it, would You please send a dolly for the little girl so she’ll know You really love her?” 


As often with children’s prayers, I was put on the spot. Could I honestly say “Amen?” I just did not believe that God could do this. 
Oh, yes, I know that He can do everything; the Bible says so. But there are limits, aren’t there? The only way God could answer this particular prayer would be by sending me a parcel from the homeland. I had been in Africa for almost four years at that time, and I had never, ever, received a parcel from home.  Anyway, if anyone did send me a parcel, who would put  in a hot water bottle? I lived on the equator! 
Halfway through the afternoon, while I was teaching in the nurses’ training school, a message was sent that there was a car at my front door. By the time I reached home, the car had gone, but there on the verandah was a large 22-pound parcel. I felt tears pricking my eyes. I could not open the parcel alone, so I sent for the orphanage children. Together we pulled off the string, carefully undoing each knot. We folded the paper, taking care not to tear it unduly.  Excitement was mounting. Some thirty or forty pairs of eyes were focused on the large cardboard box. From the top, I lifted out brightly-colored, knitted jerseys. Eyes sparkled as I gave them out. Then there were the knitted bandages for the leprosy patients, and the children looked a little bored. Then came a box of mixed raisins and sultanas – that would make a batch of buns for the weekend. 
Then, as I put my hand in again, I  felt the…..could it really be? 
I grasped it and pulled it out. Yes, a brand new, rubber hot water bottle. I cried.  I had not asked God to send it; I had not truly believed that He could. 

Ruth
was in the front row of the children. She rushed forward, crying out, “If God has sent the bottle, He must have sent the dolly, too!”  Rummaging down to the bottom of the box, she pulled out the small, beautifully-dressed dolly. Her eyes shone! She had never doubted!  Looking up at me, she asked, “Can I go over with you and give this dolly to that little girl, so she’ll know that Jesus really loves her?” “Of course,” I replied! 


That parcel had been on the way for five whole months, packed up by my former Sunday school class, whose leader had heard and obeyed God’s prompting to send a hot water bottle, even to the equator. 
And one of the girls had put in a dolly for an African child – five months before, in answer to the believing prayer of a ten-year-old to bring it “that afternoon.” 
Before they call, I will answer.” (Isaiah 65:24).


When you receive this, say a prayer. That’s all I ask. No strings attached. Then just send it on to whomever you want to – but do send it on.

Prayer is one of the best free gifts we receive. There is no cost, but a lot of rewards. Let’s continue to trust in God with all our heart. What a faithful God
