News analysis from a prophetic Christian worldview
The fight for life
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 Declaration of Independence states, "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among those are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness." Over 61 million preborn American citizens have lost their unalienable rights to liberty and the pursuit of happiness because their life was snuffed out before they had a chance to live it. The 1973 Roe v Wade Supreme Court decision to legalize abortion opened the door to the greatest infanticide movement known to man in contemporary times. Today, death culture jack-boots push abortion after full term. Even so, there is a gallant counterrevolution fighting for life.
After years of tenacious hard work, setbacks, lobbying and good old-fashioned prayer and action, the pro-life folks in Ohio overcame the forces of darkness and Republican Governor Mike DeWine signed into law  The Ohio Human Rights and Heartbeat Protection Act prohibiting abortion of embryos and fetuses with detectable heartbeats. This is the latest in a series of victories promoting the protection of the preborn across America. Similar abortion bans have become law in Kentucky and Mississippi, and on in Georgia is pending signature. Ohio also was successful in a previous court challenge to the state's legislation ending taxpayer funding to Planned Parenthood because it performs abortions. 
The pro-abortion Guttmacher Institute reports: " Six-week bans have also moved in Missouri and Tennessee legislatures, while they have been introduced-but have not yet moved-in Florida, Illinois, Louisiana, Maryland, Minnesota, New York, South Carolina and West Virginia. In addition, North Dakota (2013) and Iowa (2017) have already enacted such bans (neither is in effect). Through April 11, 14 states have introduced, moved, or enacted 6-week bans this year, underscoring the extreme scope and unprecedented volume of these bills. Banning abortion at six weeks has emerged as a leading tactic for antiabortion politicians and activists, with the ultimate goal of challenging Roe v Wade at the U.S. Supreme Court."
Also, the movie "Unplanned" has become a box office success despite the pro-death lobby and social media's efforts to discourage viewership. Today, please praise God and say a prayer for those warriors on the front line who are taking Romans 12:21 to heart, "Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good." These men and women have worked hard, prayed hard, and demonstrated longsuffering in their fight for life. I want to commend them and hold them up--folks like Dr. Les Young, a 30-year veteran of the pro-life movement, who has written a 365-0day devotional called "Devoted to Life." There are so many who are devoted to life EVERY DAY. They are driven by the passion of God in the righteous fight for life. 
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

An Appeal for the Children Suffering in Mozambique

By Pastor William Agbeti

[NOTE: If you choose to support the relief efforts of Pastor William Agbeti for the children impacted by the cyclone in Mozambique, please just note "Mozambique" in your donation notation or on your check. ]

I am weeping right now for the devastation that children in Mozambique are caught up in! I am therefore sending an appeal to readers and supporters  to consider sending immediate help for children in Mozambique affected by cyclone Idai. 

Below is the plea for help:

Everyone might have by now heard of the devastation caused by cyclone Idai in Mozambique. Several 100s are dead and rendered homeless. Whole communities, including children, women and the elderly are without food and essential needs like water.Children are dying as a result and the nation has declared a s tate of emergency. 
Nearby Ghana, children in Mozambique are suffering from the impact of a cyclone that is predicted to have claimed over 1,000 lives

The hardest thing to bear is that all these things are happening right in our backyard. 

We hear the cries and pleas for help and cannot close our eyes and stop our ears to them.In the wake of all this, we cannot remain silent because the cries for help have become loudest of late.  We are therefore also calling for help in order to help affected children in Mozambique. 

This is our very first attempt at international outreach. 

I plan on leaving for the affected areas in a week, on an emergency errand.  Even if we are able to save a few children from starvation or death, that would be a lot accomplished in the name of the Lord! My plans are to stay for a week only in Mozambique, and distribute essential commodities and medications recommended by doctors in Ghana, with documented approval. 

My budget is $5000, including travel costs and essential items. Close to $4000 of this amount will go directly to help the children! Please extend a helping hand! I will be sending direct reports from the field, should conditions permit. Please send help now! 

God richly bless you for allowing Him to touch and turn your hearts towards children in Mozambique.

NOTE: In case we are unable to raise the target amount, the entire funds raised will be sent to the Mozambique consulate in Ghana, with specific instructions to help children with it!
