Headlines vs a prophetic people

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.

Here are some of today’s headlines: China Warns America: Don’t Go First; Scientists create mutant ants…Dozens of Female Employees Accuse GOOGLE of Gender Discrimination…Designer Shocks With Naked Fashion Show…Hollywood Billboard Features 43,412 Nude Scenes…ISIS to use Drones to Take Down Planes…Democrat Campaign Spokeswoman: No Interest in Working With Pro-Life Dems…Iran Not Living Up To Nuclear Deal…Disney Sued For Collecting Private Information From Children Via Game Apps…If you are looking to the news for any type of positive reinforcement, you won’t find it. You will find pretty much the vilest of what humans do to themselves and to one another.
The 24 hour, seven days a week news cycle has denigrated itself into a repository for the very worst of humankind. In fact, it often is supportive of this malevolent movement that is sweeping the world. It’s important that a prophetic people do not get caught up in this cycle and mantra. It’s easy to do. Those who do may find themselves often depressed, argumentive, angry, fearful, anxious, empty, even paranoid. As Jesus said in Matthew 24:4, “Take heed that no man deceive you.” We must be discerning in these times, for they are truly waxing worse and worse. Remember that salvation is not found in politicians or business leaders. Peace cannot be achieved apart from the Prince of Peace.
Jesus told his disciples in John 16:32, “In the world you shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.” Then Jesus prayed in the Garden in John 17:14-21, “I have given them your word; and the world has hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. I pray not that you should take them out of the world, but that you should keep them from the evil. They are not of the world, even as I am not of the world. Sanctify them through your truth: your word is truth. As you have sent me into the world, even so have I also sent them into the world. And for their sakes I sanctify myself, that they also might be sanctified through the truth. Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word.”
Jesus is praying not only for his disciples, but for all of us ever to believe on him that we are not of the world, that we be kept from the evil of the world, and that we be sanctified by the Father’s word, which is truth. We are not going to find much truth in the headlines or in politics or entertainment. It is all worldly and of the world. You will find truth in the Word of God. What’s John 1:1 say?, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” There is a big difference between the words of the world that we find in the headlines and the Word of God which sanctifies us, sets us apart and keeps us from evil. A prophetic people know the difference and abides in the true Word.
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

Our Feeding and Clothing Ministry Outreach in Ghana

By Pastor William Agbeti
[NOTE: This is an account of just one of many feeding and clothing programs conducted by The Daily Jot and our ministry partner Redeem West Africa in the rural areas of Ghana, West Africa. These are often areas under heavy Islamic pressure. We are also providing clean water in rural areas with our well projects. It’s your kind donations that make this possible–Blessings, Bill W]

KROBO-ODUMASE, Eastern Region, Ghana:

As early as 8am Sunday morning, February 5, 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 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 goodbye 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 joyous stampede! Both children and adults started rushing to gain the best place in the queue to receive their free meals.
Tears rolled down the cheeks of volunteers, as they served in total silence.

The Daily Jot is totally reader supported. My wife, Chris, and I do not take a salary or receive any remuneration for this work. Your gifts go directly to assisting us in maintaining this column, the website, outreach, and the Lord’s work we do in Ghana, West Africa. Thank you for your prayers and support.

Have a Blessed and Powerful Day,

Bill Wilson
