News analysis from a prophetic Christian worldview
Is freedom so precious, life so dear?

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.

The Apostle Paul wrote in Galatians 5:1, "Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage." The brave men who put to ink their signature upon the Declaration of Independence knew they were about to change the world.  They knew they would either be successful in establishing this new nation or die in the process and they bound themselves in covenant that they would live free or die.  Today, even this past week, the U.S. Supreme Court and many elected officials and ministers of the Gospel deny these men had anything to do with Christ.  But history and the facts prove otherwise.  Here are a few direct quotes from some of these men:
"We have this day restored the Sovereign, to Whom alone men ought to be obedient.  He reigns in heaven and from the rising to the setting sun, may His Kingdom come"--Samuel Adams, July 4, 1776. "The moral principles and precepts contained in the scripture ought to form the basis of all our civil constitutions and laws.  All the miseries and evil men suffer from vice, crime, ambition, injustice, oppression, slavery, and war, proceed from their despising or neglecting the precepts contained in the Bible"--Noah Webster.  "We have no government armed in power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion.  Our Constitution was made only for a religious and moral people.  It is wholly inadequate for the government of any other"--John Adams.
"I have lived, Sir, a long time, and the longer I live the more convincing proofs I see of this truth-that God governs in the affairs of men.  And if a sparrow cannot fall to the ground without His notice, is it probable that an empire can rise without His aid?  We have been assured, Sir, in the Sacred Writings, that "except the Lord build the house they labor in vain that build it."  I firmly believe this.  I also believe that without His concurring aid we shall succeed in this political building no better than the builders of Babel"--Benjamin Franklin.What? Benjamin Franklin referring to scripture? I'm sure this is rarely, if ever, taught in the public school system. 
In Ezekiel 3:19, the Lord says, "Yet if you warn the wicked, and he turn not from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but you have delivered your soul." Hear this:  Those who would deny God, deny the deity of Jesus Christ, and seek to diminish the role of the Godhead in establishing and blessing this nation as set in the words and deeds of the Founding fathers, whether so done in the pulpit, or in the classroom, or in the courtroom, or on the street, or in the secret place of the heart, should fear God and repent. The Lord has seen fit to provide us-even this generation of Americans-freedom to worship and to share the gospel of Christ. Freedom is so precious in sharing the good news, and life is essential to share it. Know Christ, know liberty, know life.
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

Feeding a community of children

By Pastor William Agbeti

As early as 8am one Sunday morning not long ago, they started pouring in. Two hundred and sixteen children, forty eight parents and a handful of the disabled, coming from various poor homes and communities, eagerly looking forward to a good, free meal.
The Daily Jot supported ministry in Ghana feeds, clothes and provides clean water for hundreds of children

The atmosphere was electrifying and heartrending - an entire community of children and parents showing up for a free meal.

Meals were served to the satisfaction of all. All had soda to drink and water to quench their thirsts.

Everyone participated in some sort of games and danced to popular local music. Joy, laughter, merry making and the spirit of love hung heavily in the air. 
This was heaven to many.

Then what we always dread at our feeding functions happened. It was time to say good bye and depart. A surprise announcement was made, that all the children and their parents, including the disabled, would be given free food to take home! 

They were asked to line up for the extra food. Suddenly there was a stampede. Children and adults started fighting for first place in the queue to receive their free meals. 

Tears rolled down the cheeks of volunteers, as they served in total silence.
