News analysis from a prophetic Christian worldview
What to do Part 2
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.

If you missed yesterdays Daily Jot, we were discussing what to do about the condition of our nation. The first step, I believe, is self-examination. It starts with every individual determining the cost of action. The cost of taking up their cross and following Christ beyond four walls-of your church, of your home, of your safe places. Then you need to ask yourself, "what is it that I want to change?" The Holy Spirit will guide you if you pray and seek the Lord on what you should do. Now, I know that this is not answering the question in whole about what to do about our nation, but these are fundamental questions you must ask yourself to be an effective world-changer. It's about relationship with the Lord because without him, we cannot win.
As with any warrior, you are going to be challenged in whatever you do to change the world. It is important to be suited up, well armed, and trained. Hosea 4:1 says, "For the Lord has a controversy with the inhabitants of the land, because there is not truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God in the land."  Sound familiar? Hosea 4:1 says, "For the Lord has a controversy with the inhabitants of the land, because there is not truth, nor mercy, nor knowledge of God in the land." Verse 6 says, "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Get educated. Study your Bible. Study the area you want to change. Have discernment. Be able to spot the danger areas, the hypocrisies, the principalities. Prepare yourself for battle.
Part of putting on that full armor of God is to not be offended. People will disagree. Your salvation will come into question. You will be accused from the content of others' hearts. To prevent me from being offended, the Lord gave me Ezekiel 3:17-21. Verse 18 says, "When I say unto the wicked, You shall surely die; and you give him not a warning, nor speak to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life...his blood I will require at your hand." In other words, "you better tell them what I tell you to tell them and it is up to them to do with it what they will. But if you don't tell them, its on you." This prevents offense. You are just the messenger. Once you have given the message, it's on the recipient to act. But remember to deliver the message from a heart of love and obedience. A kind word turns away wrath. Pray before you act.
Prayer is wonderful if that is all you can do. James 5:16 says, "The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much." But as James wrote even before that in 2:17: "Even so faith, if it hath not works, is dead, being alone." The Lord wants you to act. Pray and act. If you are not hearing from the Lord on what to do, pray more fervently. It is not up to me to tell you what to do. The Lord will tell you by his Holy Spirit. You must hear and take action. The Lord will not tell you to do anything that does not align with his Holy Scripture IN ITS CONTEXT--that is how you confirm if you are hearing from the Lord. Righteous people must be more vocal and active about what is just and right. Move beyond your walls.
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!
