OSA Daily Report
Tuesday, July 14, 2015
Day four of Operation Save America’s “Let Justice Roll” event and amazing things are happening. Not least of these, is how pro-abortionists are declaring the work of the Lord in Montgomery. Yes, you read that right. The unsaved world is doing our promotion for us.
Reaching the Lost
If you know anything of OSA, you know we are all about preaching the Gospel and saving babies. OSA is simply the church in action, loving the lost and rescuing those unjustly sentenced to death. OSA leadership consists largely of pastors, ministers, or deacons. In addition, one of the requirements for leadership is that the person be in good standing with a local church. The life of the movement is the saving blood of Jesus.
When non-Christians (secretly or openly) attend OSA events they are welcomed. When they are met on the streets, they are prayed for and encouraged. Many former abortion supporters have repented at the preaching of the Gospel and have given their lives to Christ. Salvation is one of the precious fruit of the ministry.
What most abortion supporters don’t understand is that when OSA does the work of the Lord, we are doing so with them in mind. The love of Christ compels us (2 Corinthians 5:14). OSA members are rescuing those unjustly sentenced to death in Montgomery, but that is just part of the vision. OSA members don’t want ANYONE to perish in their sins and go to hell.
Naturally, the coverage we are receiving within pro-abortion circles is an answer to a specific prayer- reaching the lost.
The far left blog sent an undercover reporter to the opening rally and then uploaded their surreptitious video of Chief Justice Roy Moore addressing OSA. The video has already received over 2,600 views.
Psalm 64 promises that a day will come when God will rescue the afflicted and the wicked “will be made to stumble; their own tongues work against them. All who see them will shake their heads. Then everyone will fear and will tell about God’s work, for they will understand what He has done (Psalm 64:8-9).
The tongues of the lost are telling “about God’s work.” We are thankful for any snippet of coverage that presents the truth of the Gospel. We trust that God’s Word will not return void and we pray for all who may read the posts.
Breitbart Unmasked is following OSA closely. Despite his intentions, Matt Osborne’s recent hit piece still managed to reveal some important facts. The news source quoted our Saturday July 12, daily report:
Despite the fact 1) participants read and sign a biblically modeled “Pledge for Non-violence” 2) OSA has police liaisons that work with local and federal law enforcement officials 3) that OSA leadership has publically eschewed violence in all its forms 4) that members of OSA who were formerly involved in the “rescue movement” were part of the largest non-violent civil disobedient movement in history 5) and that in over 50,000 O.R. arrests, there was not one arrest for violence Breitbart Unmasked claims OSA Christians are “domestic terrorists” and “featuring prominent extremists who endorse or commit acts of violence against reproductive care clinics and providers.” Say what? Clearly, the reporters at Breitbart Unmasked are too busy pontificating to research. Come on guys, how about a little journalist ethics or a smidgeon of intellectual honesty?
Speaking of honesty, Alabama.com revealed the need for OSA in a recent article. OSA spokeswoman, Miss Pat, articulated the love of the Lord. Sadly, an abortion supporter from Huntsville also shared her position. Her words remind us of why we leave the comfort of the pews for the discomfort of the world.
In the article, Kathy Zenter stated, “In the last few years they [OSA] have been pretty tame, but they are coming to Huntsville to…’Storm the gates of Hell,’ so we have to be prepared for anything.” Did you catch that? Since OSA is storming the gates of hell, Zenter must protect hell.
Without meaning to, Zenter revealed a deeper truth as to why OSA ministers on the streets. Babies are being murdered and those who kill them are on the threshold of hell. We are to “pull them out of the fire” as James 1:21-23 teaches. God forbid Christians would sit idly by and watch them fall into the fires of hell.
Live Streaming and Video
College student Jonathan S. has done a wonderful job of live streaming the evening rallies. OSA members that are unable to attend can still watch the presentations and preaching as it happens. To watch the rallies visit https://youtu.be/QAeFnLyT_uY Video and recorded messages will be available at the conclusion of the event. Kudos to Jonathan for bringing OSA into homes throughout America.
Christians gathered in the meeting room at Drury Inn at 7:30 for corporate prayer and instructions by assistant director, Chet Gallagher. As in the proceeding days, teams were sent to the Southern Poverty Law Center, Reproductive Health Services, the River Walk (with Tom and Dale’s display), the University, local intersections, and one “surprise” location- the Frank M. Johnson, Jr. Federal Courthouse Complex in Montgomery, the seat of the Honorable Myron Thompson. Thompson was the U.S. District judge who ordered the removal of the 2.6 ton granite that honored the Ten Commandments from the Alabama Supreme Court.
OSA members, as Representatives of the Church of Jesus Christ, held an ecclesiastical court outside the federal courthouse. Eight charges were leveled against the federal court and Supreme Court of the United States.
The preamble to the charge read:
Today, we as representatives of the Church of Jesus Christ, do on this 14th day of July, in the year of our Lord 2015, come to exercise our God-ordained authority. We come to hold this federal court and the Supreme Court of the United States of America accountable before the Court of Almighty God. In fact, we hold it in contempt of the Court before whom every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.
This official court recognized 8 charges that were the actual Supreme Court rulings that unleashed hell upon America. After reading the decisions, men of God tore up the decisions and through them in a bin. After each indictment, the church in mass rendered God’s verdict. Choice passages of Scripture were chosen that applied directly to the charges leveled against these wicked, unjust, and unconstitutional decrees. As soon as God’s word was declared, the coffin with the case and date of case that represented each decision was thrown to the ground.
The torn up decisions were then set on fire and we concluded the Ecclesiastical Court with this announcement:
These unjust and wicked rulings have violated the Biblical mandate to judge justly. The Supreme Court violated their constitutional responsibility. By these unjust rulings, they forfeited all moral authority. Therefore, by the authority invested in us as ministers of the Gospel of the Kingdom we cancel these wicked decisions. We render them null and void. We prohibit their enforcement upon America and its citizens. We declare with one voice that these wicked decrees are no longer binding upon us, our children, or our nation May God watch over his word to perform it and the future reflect the truths stated today in Jesus’ mighty name!
Dan Becker spoke on Germany’s descent into utilitarianism, which led to genocide. He contrasted the spread of Nazism with America’s current anti-child, pro-abortion attitudes. It was an eye opening, sobering look at the state of our nation. The slippery slope experienced by Germany has been greased by the culture of death in America. God help us stop the slide to perdition!

The saints met at 7:30 am in the OSA meeting room at Drury Inn in preparation for a busy day of street activities. The leaders broke up the group of 400 into manageable teams. Pastor Ante’s team was sent to the Southern Poverty Law Center. Another team, led by Pastor Dale Sochia was dispatched to Reproductive Health Services on Perry street in Montgomery. Tom Raddell set up his powerful display that chronicles past atrocities, which relates to the massacre in our day at the River Walk. It made the news with a favorable article.
Other leaders brought their groups to strategic locations throughout the city of Montgomery as part of OSA’s Word in Warfare. The saints are unsheathing the Sword of the Spirit by prophesying God’s Word from Genesis to Revelation throughout key locations in the city.
Others saints dispersed to different busy intersections to hold signs and pass out literature. In just two days over 6000 tracts have been distributed in the city of Montgomery. And something new to OSA this year- a traveling worship troupe comprised of high school and college aged young people visited each venue. Guitars and sweet praise was lifted up throughout the city. One of our prayers coming into Montgomery was “Let God’s praise be glorious.” We are pleased to report that those prayers are being answered.
Southern Poverty Law Center Outreach
The Word tells us, “He that justifies the wicked, and he that condemns the just, even they both are an abomination to the Lord” (Proverbs 17:15). The SPLC is guilty of both. SPLC’s hate crime list reads like an adolescent’s cyberbullying “ugly list.” It seems all it takes to get on an SPLC list is to believe something contrary to their atheistic, communistic worldview.
Their Orwellian doublespeak propaganda is legendary. However, as Orwell stated, “In a time of universal deceit, telling the truth is a revolutionary act.” OSA promoted this “revolutionary act” by bring the Gospel of the Kingdom to the gates of hell right outside of SPLC.
While there may be groups on the list who are actually dangerous, by lumping them in with those who are not, SPLC endangers the public. Just ask the Family Research Council on how dangerous they can be. One of their disciples shot up FRC and wounded a guard who saved many lives that fateful day by apprehending one of their homosexual activists.
Some people discount SPLC claims out of hand. They assume their labeling of “hate groups” is nothing more than far left smear campaigns. Its “guilt by association” mudslinging has made SPLC a laughing stock in some circles- an insulated, high-fiving, conclave of mind melding borgs who seek to assimilate the culture into their anti-God, socialism.
Perhaps SPLC misses the Stonewall Riots or antiwar demonstrations of the ’60’s. Like the anti-establishment hippies who threw rocks at returning Vietnam vets, SPLC throws slanderous words at those they perceive as haters or intolerant. And its rocks at times are weighty. SPLC uses its 250 million fund raising dollars to slander any group (mainly Christian groups) with whom it disagrees.
Christians from around the nation converged on the SPLC to expose its hypocrisy and its betrayal of justice. OSA set up a sound system that played anointed worship music that prepared for the preaching of God’s Word.
The sound carried so well that it was heard inside Chief Justice Roy Moore’s office building and down both Washington Blvd. and Dexter Ave. Office workers from surrounding buildings were drawn outside. They listened at the doorways as men of God shared the Gospel. There were ample opportunities to minister and to pray for the citizens of Montgomery.
Pastor Ante Pavcovich wrote a tract that exposed SPLC’s egregious violations of justice. In two days, over 1000 brochures were passed out. Pastor Bill Shanks led Word in Warfare at SPLC while Pastor Frank Campana led the awareness campaign. His team held the graphic signs outside the office windows while children passed out tracts. The heat index reached 115 degrees on Monday so when the Lord sent a cloud covering, the saints rejoiced. “The sun shall not strike you by day, nor the moon by night” (Psalms 121:6).
The children cooled themselves near the Civil Rights Memorial that stands outside SPLC. The memorial contains a black granite round stone table and wall. Water emerges from the center of the round table and flows evenly down its base and sides, washing over the engraved names of the 41 people who died during the civil rights struggle.
The curved wall is covered by a flowing film of water, engraved with “Until justice rolls down like waters and righteousness as a mighty stream.” The quote was attributed to Martin Luther King Jr. yet Rev. King was quoting the Bible (Amos 5:24) during his “I Have a Dream” speech in 1963. Ironically, this passage of Scripture carries the theme of our national event, “Let Justice Roll.”
Mothers and grandmothers took time to explain to the children the significance of the memorial. Young people learned on how those Biblical truths apply to the evils of our day. Between leafleting visitors to SPLC, the children dabbled in the fountain. The waters provided a refreshing coolness in the stifling heat. Let’s just say, the OSA children were immersed in “justice” by the end of the outreach.
The SPLC could learn a lesson from the children playing in the spray of its fountain. Although SPLC claims to be “dedicated to fighting hate and bigotry and to seeking justice,” those outside its towering walls see SPLC as a caricature of justice. Justice infers righteousness, fairness, and impartiality. Sadly, SPLC is guilty of the worst forms of injustice.
Instead of defending freedom of religion and justice for the preborn, SPLC defends baby murder, persecutes Christians, promotes sodomy and attempts to silence, marginalize, and disenfranchise any person, organization, or ministry they hate. It’s amazing the black granite memorial to justice hasn’t cracked in its blatant hypocrisy.
At Reproductive Health Services, abortion supporters celebrated the death of babies by blocking access to the public sidewalk through a permit issued by the police department. They also rented a nearby home to host pro-abortion gatherings. A loud and abrasive group of pagans and homosexuals taunted Christians. One sign read, “Abortionists are Heroes.”
The hearts of abortion supporters were hard as rock, but Pastor Dale described how a sweet, 9 year old girl witnessed to the pro-aborts guarding the Reproductive Health Services. It all started with one our men preaching outside the clinic. The pro-aborts loudly cackled and mocked God’s Word as he poured out his heart. Apparently, holy boldness came upon this young girl. She stepped forward with a burden to speak.
The young girl compared their sin of child killing to the disobedience of a child. Just as a disobedient child knows the instructions of her parents yet chooses to disobey anyway, abortion supporters know the truth of abortion, but kill babies anyway. She told them that they were in violation of God’s will.
you have ordained strength, because of Your enemies, that You may silence the enemy and the avenger.”
In the afternoon, David and Shaun from North Carolina visited the University of Alabama. On campus, they engaged three friends with the Gospel. The young woman listened. Deeply touched, she gave her life to Jesus! There have been testimonies of other people surrendering their lives to the Lordship of Jesus Christ each day. We praise God for his tender mercies and loving kindness.
Covenant Ministries International hosted a rousing evening rally. The highlight was former national director, Pastor Keith Tucci’s sermon on “What is the Church?” Tucci is pastor of City Church and Senior Apostle of the Network of Related Pastors, which is based out of Louisiana. A pro life pioneer and rescuer, Tucci has been fighting for the rights of the preborn for nearly 30 years. He challenged members of OSA to come under church authority and forgive any church hurt. After Tucci’s piercing teaching, members were invited to the altar for prayer and healing.
AHA founder, T. Russel Hunter, gave a presentation on what many thought was an historical document called “The Declaration of Sentiments” to a standing ovation. The document calls for the immediate abolishment to abortion, without compromise. No more trimming the branches that nurture child sacrifice and the shedding of innocent blood. It is time to take the axe of God’s Word to the root of this bloody, idolatrous tree to end the American holocaust and the saints said, “AMEN!”

Sunday, July 12, 2015
On Sunday, the saints focused their attention on finishing up the 24 hour intercession and praise at the Capitol Building in Montgomery, AL. Brother Andy Strange was incredibly helpful and a huge encouragement to the many saints who took time out of their day and night to stand watch. Spirit filled praise and worship was the accompaniment to a continuous prayer vigil. We were blessed and feel that God honored our sincere request to hear our humble cry as we repented for the sins of abortion, homosexuality, and other idolatries.
The saints were given a challenge to fellowship with churches across Montgomery during their Sunday morning worship services. Each church visited received a packet of information about Operation Save America. Included in the packet was a pastor’s letter, an invitation to the Solemn Assembly, and a featured speakers list for our rallies.
Brother Patrick Johnston reported that his family was welcomed by two churches in one building. He visited with both pastors. He was welcomed and given an opportunity to speak to the church. Pastor Dale visited an Assemblies of God church, and was also welcomed and fed lunch. The pastor of the church had the district council leader and the State leader of the Assemblies of God in attendance, so the information about the Solemn Assembly and OSA was placed in the hands of well respected leaders who openly stated their support of OSA.
Bishop Otis Kenner had the opportunity to follow up with a pastor that Rev Rusty Thomas had been communicating with prior to the event. If you recall, this particular pastor’s wife and son “work” at the local death camp in Montgomery. Rev. Thomas lovingly, but firmly called him to repentance to lead his family out of the darkness and to break the unholy alliance that existed between the church and the altars of Moloch. Their participation was granting religious cover and justification to sanitize this great evil in their city. Bishop Kenner provided the second witness to call them out of this darkness back to the marvelous light of God’s Kingdom.
Overall, the saints reported that their individual experiences at the several churches were blessed. It was evident that God’s Providential Hand was at work. One local black pastor took the OSA leadership out to lunch confessing that he needed to get involved in the battle for the souls of men, the lives of children, and the future of our bloodstained land.
We praise the Lord for preparing the hearts of the pastors and the church bodies to receive the message and the challenge to “Come Help Us” end the bloodshed in their community. Please continue to pray over those pastors who received the information, as they are stirred in their hearts about the urgency of the situation and the task at hand.
On Sunday night, a small group of intercessors met before the evening rally to pray for the pastors, worship team, solemn assembly, and the outreach the following morning.
During worship, Pastor Dale Sochia and the worship team (Cassia Wachsmann, Josiah Thomas, Brittany Stewart, Josiah Thomas, and Jonathan and David Sochia) ushered in the presence of the Lord. The worship was sweet and anointed.
Pastor Bill Shanks delivered the word before the offering. He preached from Matthew 25 and the parable of the talents. If God has given you something, use it for His kingdom. At the end of his admonishment, he asked a poignant question of the audience. “When our grandchildren say, ‘What did you do, Papa, when they were killing babies?’ Most American’s will have nothing to say. Nothing. But not you. You can say, ‘I was there when the battle raged.'”
Rev Rusty Thomas gave the call for repentance at the Solemn Assembly. Three local pastors led the prayers of repentance for personal sins, the sins of the church, and our national sins. Pastor Mike Trippy started the prayer for our personal sins, and he invited us to get into the proper posture for prayer and repentance. The packed house moved to the front of the sanctuary and kneeled at the altar together as the prayer began.
As the prayers continued, families joined together with broken and contrite hearts. They laid their burdens individually and collectively at the foot of the Cross. Pastor Carmen Falcione led the prayer for the sins of the church and Pastor Tom Ford led the prayer for the national sins. These anointed men of God led the congregation to the place they needed to be.
With this shift in the spiritual climate, Rev Rusty Thomas invited all of the pastors in the congregation to come to the front of the church. He quoted, “Is anyone among you sick? Let him call for the elders of the church, and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord. And the prayer of faith will save the sick, and the Lord will raise him up. And if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven” (James 5:14, 15).
He called for the sick and needy to come receive prayer. The men of God anointing the sick with oil with the laying on of hands. Several individuals were blessed with prayers for healing.
We thank Bishop Kyle Searcy at Fresh Anointing Church of Montgomery, Alabama, for welcoming and covering OSA. The facilities, the atmosphere, and the fellowship was as advertised – a truly fresh anointing.
Saturday, July 12, 2015
Operation Rescue/Operation Save America’s “Let Justice Roll” has begun. Christians from across America rolled in to Drury Inn and surrounding hotels Saturday for a week of Gospel centered prolife outreaches. From as far away as California, Washington, Wisconsin, New York, Florida, Oklahoma, Kansas and Texas, OSA members brought a spirit of repentance and a cry of liberty to the Cradle of the South, Montgomery, Alabama.
Montgomery is steeped in history. It was the first capital of the Confederate States of America in 1861, a major site of events in the Civil Rights Movement, the Ten Commandment standoff in 2003, and the recent showdown between the people of Alabama and the federal government’s enforcement of homosexual marriage.
Large families with children piled out of fifteen passenger vans. Young adults greeted friends and mingled in the lobby, munching the hotel’s fresh popcorn and sipping soda. Others helped unload luggage and assisted senior citizens from cars. Assistant Director, Chet Gallagher, welcomed each attendee at the entrance.
24 Hour Intercession
Those who came in early to Montgomery participated in OSA’s 24 Hour Intercessory Prayer Watch, organized by local Christian, Andy Strange. OSA was blessed by Andy‘s hard work and commitment to making the prayer time fruitful. With the help of Joel Puckett and Valiant (15) and Jeremiah (13) Thomas, Andy erected a “tent of meeting,” a twenty foot canopy equipped with a generator, church podium, keyboard, speakers, fans, lighting, ample cold water, snacks, and ample seating. The Christian flag flew over the structure and a large sign advertised prayer. As people prayed under the tent, families circled the capital in prayer walks and young people took turns handing out tracks and engaging the public. The youth had significant Gospel conversations with Alabamans and tourists alike.
Many locals and national OSA members signed up for the intercessory prayer watch which began at 8:00 am and continued until 8:00 am Sunday. Others who couldn’t pray on site, prayed against abortion and for the city and our nation long distance. Mr. Thom Huey devoted his weekly national prayer conference call to pray for and with those at the capital. During the evening, Cassia Wachasmann and Josiah performed live worship, as did the Stewart family and others. The mission was completed by 8 AM Sunday morning.
OSA was honored to have Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore addressed the opening night rally. As an article in the Montgomery Advertiser stated:
Before Moore began his hour-long speech, OSA National Director Rev. Rusty Thomas unexpectedly presented him with an engraved wooden plaque he called the “Godly Statesman Award.” Afterward, the audience rose from their seats and surrounded Moore for a group prayer at the request of Thomas.
It was a strong show of support for the embattled justice who has been lambasted for his religious steadfastness more than once in his career.
“You’ve got a good man,” Thomas said as a message to the state of Alabama. “He’s personable, knowledgeable, and he sees things through a biblical, historical grid.”
The plaque read:
Godly Statesman Award
Chief Justice Roy Moore
“Moreover you shall select from all the people able men, such as fear God, men of truth, hating covetousness” (Exodus 18:21).
This plaque is given in recognition of your faithful service to our Lord, our nation, and the state of Alabama. Your unwavering devotion to God, family, and country has been an inspiration to many. We love you dear brother! Keep pressing on to the high call and prize in Jesus’ name!
Rhonda Herrington with The Manning Report listened to Moore’s speech in the audience. Afterwards, she described the Chief Justice as “the last judge standing in America.”
The ABC affiliate in Montgomery covered Moore and the 24 Hour prayer watch on its evening news cast. “Operation Save America, a Christian group based out of Texas, is coordinating the prayer marathon. Their message is centered around preaching against abortion. The group also wants to show support for Chief Justice Roy Moore, who spoke at their rally at the Fresh Anointing Church Saturday night. Moore spoke out against abortion and same-sex marriage.”
Finally, the liberal Huntsville Times reported Moore as saying:
You know, some told me ‘you know they’re a radical group.’ I said yeah. They are radical for God,” said Moore as the audience cheered and applauded. “We appreciate what you do,” Moore added.
Moments before Moore began speaking OSA leader Rusty Lee Thomas called on the audience to come forward and surround Moore and pray for him. As the large crowd surged forward engulfing Moore and putting their hands on him, Thomas led the prayer calling for God’s protection for Moore and his work opposing the “murder” of abortion and the decision of the “federal beast” – the U.S. Supreme Court – legalizing same-sex marriage.
Prior to the event, OSA sent out a national press release describing our ministry and biblical methods, in hopes of countering the pro-abortion camp’s slander and propaganda.
Saturday’s events received some wonderful press by the Montgomery Advertiser (http://www.montgomeryadvertiser.com/story/news/2015/07/11/hate-homosexuals-chief-justice-roy-moore/30041083/)
OSA also received some not so wonderful press by a liberal, pro-abortion news site who reportedly has a reporter shadowing each event. We welcome this scrutiny. As National Director, Rev. Rusty Lee Thomas says, “OSA is a public proclamation ministry. Our primary goal is to share the Gospel and rescuing babies. All are welcome and invited to attend.”
Jesus told us, “It is enough for the disciple that he be as his master, and the servant as his lord. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub, how much more shall they call them of his household? Fear them not therefore: for there is nothing covered, that shall not be revealed; and hid, that shall not be known” (Matthew 10:25-26).
Despite the fact 1) participants read and sign a biblically modeled “Pledge for Non-violence” 2) OSA has police liaisons that work with local and federal law enforcement officials 3) that OSA leadership has publically eschewed violence in all its forms 4) that members of OSA who were formerly involved in the “rescue movement” were part of the largest non-violent civil disobedient movement in history 5) and that in over 80,000 O.R. arrests, there was not one arrest for violence Breitbart Unmasked claims OSA Christians are “domestic terrorists” and “featuring prominent extremists
One article actually warned that as “patriarchs of OSA bring their enormous families to Montgomery, major national reproductive rights organizations have sent advisers and resources to deal with the increased threat.” “Enormous families? Mmm-hmm. Our children are a threat? This from those who threaten and destroy the lives of children.
It’s been said, “You shall judge a man by his foes as well as his friends.” When weighed together, the eloquent and judicious comments of Chief Justice Roy Moore, the encouraging words of his Chief of Staff, Ben Dupre, and the slanderous and factually inaccurate reports of Breitbart Unmasked, reveals the salt has come out of the shaker and the light from under the bushel (Matthew 5:13-15).
