News analysis from a prophetic Christian worldview
Names change, but hate hasn't
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.

Christianity is under attack in American politics and the Church should wake up and take action under this current Christian-friendly president to become relevant and make disciples.   There is a group of people who are out to gain power, and in doing so, have absolutely no reservation about destroying whatever is in their way to gain that power.  They will use any method that they believe will help them and they will eliminate anyone or anything that will hinder them. If you do not believe this is ingrained in their life's philosophy, let' take a step back to 2005 and peek into a debate that arose in the halls of Congress. Check out the themes, the names and the political party, and ask yourself, 'what has changed?'
On Monday, June 27, 2005, the Daily Jot reported: "Last week, the House of Representatives was considering the Defense Appropriations bill.  Wisconsin Democrat David Obey wanted an amendment to reflect the opposition of Congress against religious evangelism at the Air Force Academy.  Indiana Congressman John Hostetler was offended and said that Democrats will take any opportunity they can to demonize Christians. Democrats immediately leapt to their feet and demanded Hostetler be censored for his accusation. Hostetler said later, "If you tell Christians they can't tell others about their faith, then they can't exercise their Christian religion." He said proselytizing involves a forced conversion to Christianity, something that did not occur at the academy.
"In the weeks leading up to this minor explosion on the House floor, Democratic Party Chairman Howard Dean mocked the Republican Party by saying it was comprised of "white Christians."  New York Democratic Senator Hillary Clinton said at a fundraiser that the Republican approach to politics was...messianic...meaning that, in her words, "Some honestly believe they are motivated by the truth, they are motivated by a higher calling, they are motivated by, I guess, a direct line to the heavens." The legislation introduced by both sides is also telltale.  Typically, Democrats are busy with bills such as the Unification of American Families Act, a pro-homosexual bill, while Republicans are trying to stop child molesters.
"Republicans are not the "be all end all" for Christianity by any account, but distinct battle lines are drawn and fought each day.  Christians have been given a Christian-friendly president with time to turn hearts toward God, yet the church appears to take this as a respite rather than as a time of labor. This is not a time to be angry at misguided politicians in either party. Ephesians 6:12 says, "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places."  It is a time to act.  For can you imagine our nation's treatment of Christian values under, say, President Hillary Clinton?" That was nearly 15 years ago. Today is similar. Be encouraged that the Lord is so faithful to give us so many chances to turn hearts toward him. But for how much longer?
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.
