2019: Disruption Ahead
NOTEWhen writing about God and Jesus, The Daily Jot means YHVH as God and Yeshua Ha Mashiach as Jesus--the actual original names and the true nature and character of them.

All indicators point to 2019 being a year of political, social and economic disruption in America. The coup of the Republic that began with the 2010 elections will continue to become more hostile in 2019, dividing Americans and causing uncertainty in the country. The game plan of the coup-makers is evident: they will attempt to disrupt government and society with brash accusations, labeling, propaganda posing as news, calls for impeachment, and ongoing "investigations" where every little detail will be broadcast as if it were the last nail in the political coffin. The landscape for Christians and Jews in America will become more perilous as freedom of religion and of speech will face ongoing challenges.
Take, for instance, a Harvard CAPS/Harris poll released "exclusively to The Hill" that indicated some 60% of US voters surveyed say that President Trump should be either impeached and removed from office or formally censured. The poll has many flaws, yet it was promoted by the coup-makers as larger than life. First, only 39% of the respondents said Trump should be impeached or removed from office. Those saying Trump should be censured were "between 14 and 22 percentage" as reported by The Hill. Adding the two results together brings the number to "nearly 60%." These are the same pollsters who predicted Hillary Clinton to win the presidency. They skew their sampling toward left-leaning voters. 
Elizabeth Drew, "a political journalist who for many years covered Washington for The New Yorker," wrote a column for The New York Times in which she cited more criminal investigations of Trump colleagues and increasing pressure by the public, making impeachment of Trump "inescapable." Of course, she didn't mention that the criminal charges against Trump's associates had nothing to do with the Russians influencing the 2016 election, or that polls show far less than a plurality that the public believes Trump should be impeached. See how these stories get twisted? NBC News produced the headline  "Democrats quest to topple Trump gets real in January, here's why." 
The Hill carried an article by former moderate New York Republican Congressman John Le Boutillier predicting 30 items of political disruption in 2019, the first being Trump's presidency will not survive. The stories will keep coming until either the American public rejects or gives in to the coup mantra. Meantime, every social and political concept of what is good and right will come under constant attack. You will need to be discerning, wise and courageous to withstand this onslaught. Ephesians 6 tells us we fight against the principalities of the rulers of darkness and spiritual wickedness in high places. Verse 11 exhorts: "Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil." It says to stand with truth, righteousness, peace, faith, and prayer, speaking boldly as you ought to speak. May we do so. 
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

Caring for those even the Church ignores: 
The Disabled in Ghana

By Pastor William Agbeti

[ NOTE: In addition to our ongoing clean water, feeding, and clothing efforts when you support The Daily Jot, you are helping wipe tears off the faces of suffering mothers and fathers seeking rehabilitation of their disabled children]
UN figures put persons living with disabilities in the world at 20% of the global population. 80% of this number can be found in developing countries. In Ghana alone, there are some 3 million persons living with various forms of disabilities. 
Our Ghana ministry serves where others will not.This two-day residential program for children with disabilities provide food, clothing and recreation

Their plight is demoralizing. Many in the Ghanaian society consider them taboos. Scores of local churches have not opened their doors to them. Several families neglect their disabled children, to fend for themselves. Sadly, some communities go to the extreme to put a newly born disabled child into a mortar and use a pestle to pound it to death, with the belief that their souls will not return to the communities again. In the main, the disabled are ostracized from the society. Only a handful of homes, families and communities treat them with a modicum of respect and acceptance. Read the rest of the story by clicking here
