Greetings Pastors Social Activist and Community Leaders,
I Was Naked And You Clothed Me
The greatest assistants in sermon illustration in over 38 years of
It was mid-July when at our annual protest at the NAACP Convention
in Philadelphia, I heard the breaking news of the efforts of the
Center for Medical Progress. Mark Levin was on a glorious rant
regarding the number of African-American babies killed by abortion
along with the revelations of the barbaric and heinous acts of
Planned Parenthood. The insidious Planned Parenthood was exposed
dismembering live children (abortion) and the selling of their body
parts. We must conclude that the "slave block" is still alive and
well in America when it was discovered whole infant cadavers were
being sold on the black market, all graphically recorded for all of
America to see. As I traveled up Highway 95, God's presence filled
the car and I heard an inward voice speak, as if He were speaking as
the voice of America, "When Did We See You Naked...?" Though it was
July, and highly unusual, it was impressed upon me by the Holy
Spirit to share this message at "Walk for Life San Francisco." I
rarely, if ever, receive inspiration that far in advance but that
was the instruction.
I had that opportunity this past week and it was quite an experience
I won't ever forget! Wherever you stand on the use of graphic
pictures, you would have to agree, if it would have just been an
audio recording produced by Center For Medical Progress, America
would not have been stunned and Planned Parenthood would not be on
the run. The graphic evidence personalizes the victims of abortion
and exposes the cruelty of the act of abortion. Such evidence
was crucial in America's and Planned Parenthood's responses. America
saw graphic evidence of the atrocity of abortion and heard the cold
blooded conversations of cruel individuals that kill and profit from
the mutilation of live babies. Their expressions and cavalier
attitudes were clearly seen and nauseated Americans of conscience.
Due to the efforts of Center for Medical Progress, and reluctant
main stream media, America "Saw the Victims Naked!"
Those who are familiar with the bible and Jesus teachings have taken
a deep breath and understand that the courageous efforts of David
Daleiden and the Center For Medical Progress was unquestionably an
orchestrated project of God Himself to announce to the nation a
certain pending judgment is not too far in the future! Mathew 25 is
a familiar text where Jesus Himself gives the teaching of the
Day-of-Judgment. In this particular dispensation men and women will
stand before the judgment seat of Christ. No matter what your
denomination: Catholic, Baptist, Pentecostal, Episcopalian, Mormon,
Holiness, Assemblies, and Seventh Day Adventist (I am tired) you
have all used this scripture to teach Jesus Christ's return and
judgment. It was amazing to me when I was a young man going to a
Baptist Church that Jesus didn't say in this parable, "When did you
accept Christ as your personal savior?" If you are of a Catholic
persuasion, perhaps you thought it would be a question about Mass?
If you are a Seventh Day Adventist, you perhaps thought it would be
focused on the day you worshipped. I am sure the Holiness,
Pentecostal, and Assemblies were expecting a question regarding
speaking in Tongues. I should stop here before I don't have any
friends at all...
The criteria that determined eternity was determined by six simple
things we all in some way are capable of doing at some time in our
lives. I will mention three and focus on the fourth.
Hungry you fed me, Thirsty you gave me drink, a Stranger and you
took me in, "Naked You Clothed Me". There are two more and you might
also conclude that one would be emotional, sick (the fifth mention
of Jesus) to abort their child and any child sentenced to die, yet
unborn – though in the womb – it now is a prison (the 6th mentioned)
from which there is practically no chance to escape the sentence of
death levied upon them. But the word we will focus upon is, Naked.
America can now never deny we did not see them Naked, for the
lawsuits filed by Planned Parenthood will only cause more of America
to see them Naked. See whom? According to Jesus you saw Him! For
when asked the question, "When did we see you naked, Jesus? Jesus
answered, 'And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say
unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these
my brethren, ye have done it unto me.'"
When has America collectively, corporately seen Jesus naked? When
David Daleiden exposed the treachery of Planned Parenthood and
America saw Jesus mutilated, cut up, and sold for profit. Planned
Parenthood doesn't clothe them; they mutilate and destroy them
selling their bodies and talk of Lamborghinis.
I told you earlier I had the chance to share my July inspired
message last week at Walk for Life San Francisco. Any preacher can
tell you, holding a prophetic message that long can welcome the
'spirit of doubt' and the habitual question 'doubt' asked: "Are
you sure about this?" Also most preachers, and especially
evangelicals, predominately look for 'confirmations' to materialize
from outside sources to confirm the direction or instruction one has
received from God. Well here were two sure-enough ones!
1. It turns out David Daleiden was asked to speak at the event
unbeknownst to me until November. I was ecstatic.
2. Just before I got up to preach a few young women from "Stop
Patriarchy" came to harass David Daleiden but they would in the end
prove to be the greatest assistants in sermon illustration I have
ever had in over 38 years of ministry! Why? Because they were
"Naked" from the waist up.
Actually it doesn't stop there, for when Sister Agnes and her team
of "Sisters for Life" saw them "Naked" they attempted to "Clothe
Them". ."..Naked And You Clothed Me..." The stark contrast of the
Sisters for Life and Planned Parenthood were never more clearly
seen. When people of life see nakedness, even when being reviled,
they choose to love and "Clothe" the naked. When Planned Parenthood
sees the naked, they abuse, and dismember, and kill for personal
Well, it was well worth the wait, the day spoke to the hearts of the
people. The crowd of saints that were there recognizes that soon the
day of reckoning will be upon us. We must be more diligent now than
ever. The outcome is eternal and where we will stand will be
determined on how well we "clothe" and protect the Naked.
