A great day for America

The Abrahamic Covenant, made by God to Abraham and his descendants, is the foundation on which God’s entire plan of salvation rests. Genesis 12:1-3 says, “…Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will show thee; And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and you shall be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee and curse him that curses thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.” Over the past decade, America has not blessed Israel, and we have suffered great economic loss, strife and division. On February 15, that began to change under President Donald Trump.
Israel’s Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu visited the White House and President Trump in one of the most significant meetings in recent history. America changed course with its President stating that his foreign policy goals do not involve dividing Israel into two states to achieve peace with Palestinian terrorists, and hinted at a broader, regional approach involving other countries. Trump said that his Administration rejects the “unfair and one-sided actions against Israel at the United Nations.” Trump reiterated that his administration has already imposed new sanctions on Iran and confirmed: “I will do more to prevent Iran from ever developing-I mean ever-a nuclear weapon.” Trump in one news conference committed to undoing almost every foreign policy of his predecessor’s evil and malicious support of Israel’s enemies.
Netanyahu said that to have peace, “First, the Palestinians must recognize the Jewish state. They have to stop calling for Israel’s destruction. They have to stop educating their people for Israel’s destruction. Second, in any peace agreement, Israel must retain the overriding security control over the entire area west of the Jordan River.  Because if we don’t, we know what will happen — because otherwise we’ll get another radical Islamic terrorist state in the Palestinian areas exploding the peace, exploding the Middle East. Now, unfortunately, the Palestinians vehemently reject both prerequisites for peace. First, they continue to call for Israel’s destruction–inside their schools, inside their mosques, inside the textbooks.  You have to read it to believe it.”
There are many Christians who do not believe Israel is Israel and Jerusalem is Jerusalem. Some believe that Christians replaced Jews as God’s chosen people. Others believe that the Israel spoken of in the Bible is a spiritual one. And there are many supersessionist beliefs in between them. But if you believe that the Bible is the infallible and inerrant word of God, then Israel is Israel-historically, physically and prophetically. The promise in the unconditional, one-way Abrahamic covenant is that those who bless Israel will be blessed and those who curse Israel will be cursed. This is repeated throughout the prophets even unto the end of days. The sea-change in foreign policy by the Trump Administration toward Israel marks a great day for America.
Have a Blessed and Powerful Day!

By Pastor William Agbeti
Esi (not a real name) is a young girl of about 11 years, who does not know her age. She hails from the Volta Region of Ghana and now lives with a female relative and the husband in a very small makeshift room, only a block away from the Redeemer House, in a fast growing rural area in the Greater Accra Region of Ghana.
Looking very emaciated, sad and shabbily dressed, she lives a life that can best be described as total slavery. From dusk to dawn, she goes about fetching water, doing grocery, sweeping, cooking, washing dishes, handling laundry and undertaking odd jobs around the house. The poor child, unfortunately, does not attend school.
When she comes to the Redeemer House to fetch water, she does so with dispatch; apparently afraid of her “parents”. Esi’s life poses a great challenge to us. The child desperately needs help, but how do we intervene?
Do we report her “parents” to the authorities? Do we walk in and speak to them? Or do we simply help her with dresses and food? What about her schooling?
If Esi’s situation looks very bad to you, understand it is the “ideal” situation many young ones and their parents back in Esi’s hometown and other villages are actually looking forward to: a home and a new life in the big towns or cities for their wards, irrespective of conditions of living.
There are thousands of Esis, and their male counterparts, Kwesis, all over Ghana. How can our ministry help all these young folks? The best way out is perhaps to extend a helping hand to an Esi or Kwesi, one at a time; beginning with the Esi that we know.
We are praying and believing God to go ahead of us as we plan to visit Esi’s “parents” this week to offer the child some clothing, shoes, underwear, food and a small sum of money. Whilst visiting, we will use the opportunity to discuss possible support for her schooling.
Esi no doubt is in a desperate situation, and as we all know, desperate SITUATIONS require desperate MEASURES.
Would you please join us on this mission to reach out to Esi to help touch and change a life for good? You may please be specific as to what you want your support to accomplish in Esi’s life.
God bless you for caring, sharing and serving Christ through Esi and our ministry. Bless you.
