God Will Transform Planned Parenthood into a Hospital For Women

It will come about after this. That I will pour out My Spirit on all mankind;
and your sons and daughters will prophesy,
your old men will dream dreams, Your young men will see visions. -- Joel 2:28
I woke up weeping the other morning. I had been weeping in a dream that I was just having, which was an extremely vivid, heart wrenching dream about abortion. The deep grieving I had been experiencing in this dream translated to the natural, and continued for three hours thereafter.
What I saw and heard in this dream -- the images, the declarations, the despair, and yet the hope - was profound. I believe it was a message from the Lord for all of us engaged in the fight for life. Approximately 3500 destinies are lost to abortion each day in our country. One in three women will have an abortion by the age of 45, and these statistics are not exempt in the church. Planned Parenthood does 900 abortions per day and is America's largest abortion provider. They performed 334,000 abortions in their last reporting period.
The death toll is staggering and impact on our lives is astounding. We must no longer turn a blind eye to the atrocity of death of preborn humans in the womb. People are suffering from the pulpit to the pew and beyond in the silence of guilt and shame. True healing and forgiveness that only comes from Jesus Christ - our Lord and Savior and lover of our souls - must be released for this to end.
In the dream, I was in a Planned Parenthood. It was a gigantic facility - the size of a hospital. I was attempting to befriend some of the clinic workers there with the hopes of helping them to recognize LIFE, and the error of their ways. They were discussing some surgical instruments that were used to perform abortions, and how these instruments were hurting women. They were nonchalant and jovial about the pain the instruments were causing women. Their tone was cheerful and casual.
They asked me my opinion about the instruments and the resulting pain on their clients. I was dumbfounded, unsure how to answer. I then ducked under a table so they wouldn't hear me, and met with my friend Crystal - a prolife warrior of God - and started weeping. I shared with her that I wanted to love these ladies and help them see God, but I was overwhelmed by the loss of life from this facility and by the fact that almost 100,000 babies had died there. I couldn't get myself composed. I came up from under the table and my weeping intensified. I told them I just couldn't sympathize with their dilemma (the hurting instruments) and that I loved them so much. I said I was sorry, and I had to leave.
I then walked into a large room and as soon as I entered this room - still weeping - the room transformed to a sky blue color filled with brilliant white light and became a classroom. I walked out of this room feeling hopeful and started down the corridor - still weeping - and I heard the word of the Lord say, "I am making this place a hospital for women." He would turn Planned Parenthood facilities into places of hope, life and healing for women, and places that would glorify Him. No more abortions would be performed there. He is doing this, He said.
My weeping continued as I walked into the Planned Parenthood parking lot. There were hundreds of women arriving for abortions of all shapes, sizes, ages and ethnic backgrounds. Their faces were numb, lifeless, and without expression. Off in the distance was a school bus filled with children in uniforms. They were piling out and chasing each other in great joy. They were laughing and playing, and had arrived at Planned Parenthood for a field trip. I was still weeping. One lady coming for an abortion asked me if I was crying because I had had an abortion. I told her that yes, I had had an abortion many years ago and that I had cried many tears because of that. I told her that on this day, however, I was crying for her.
I sat in the parking lot and watched the women crowding in, one after another, after another. Then I saw the hand of God come down and with each woman that filed by me, a tiny, dead baby manifested - the size of a minnow. God then lovingly and carefully picked each tiny body off the ground with his thumb and forefinger and laid the bodies - one on top of the other - in tiny piles of dead corpses. I sat and looked at the piles of dead babies and wept even harder.
When I woke up from this dream at this point, my weeping continued. My weeping continued for three hours and was coupled with extreme pain, reminiscent of the labor pains I have experienced. "A woman when she is in travail hath sorrow, because her hour is come: but as soon as she is delivered of the child, she remembereth no more the anguish, for joy that a man is born into the world." John 16:21
During this labor, the Holy Spirit released music in the most beautiful of melodies, and also words of forgiveness from Him for men and women suffering in the aftermath of abortion - women like myself; women like those I saw in the dream. I have received many songs from the Holy Spirit for The Life Ballet which we have incorporated into the show.
This beautiful song has been recorded with our record label Verb Records (with vocals by Corey Brooks of Spoken For and Candice Sesco of The Sescos) and is now part of our story line during the scene when our character Sarah dances with Jesus, and He crowns her with dignity, forgiveness and purity.
Our film Arise Sweet Sarah was released September 12 and is available online at www.arisesweetsarah.com. The song can be downloaded on iTunes. We encourage anyone who suffers after choice to be ministered by this incredible song available here:
