Welcome to the House of Hope!
I got this from Joel Rosenberg in Israel, read his list, it should make you think….
First, the U.S.
- More than 105,000 Americans have died from the coronavirus
- Tens of millions of Americans are out of work
- Businesses are poised to go bankrupt
- An intense debate is underway over how fast to reopen society
- Then comes the horrific, unconscionable murder of an African American man in Minneapolis named George Floyd by a group of police officers, a terrible injustice that rightly sparked outrage all over the country and the world.
- One of the officers involved has been arrested and charged with murder — but all of them should be, even as investigations should take place at the local, state and national level (via the FBI) to figure out how this could possibly have taken place and who was responsible.
- Many turned out on the streets to peacefully protest a justice system that too often does not provide African Americans the justice and protection they deserve.
- But criminals, thugs and domestic terrorists then seized on the crisis to unleash riots, looting, fires, and ugly, violent attacks in cities all over the U.S.
- Now, Israel.
- We, too, are trying to recover from the COVID-19 crisis.
- We have far fewer deaths, per capita, than the U.S.
- And by God’s grace and wise leadership, we are successfully beginning to reopen our society.
- What a perspective by Joel Rosenberg………..
- America is in deep trouble, it is a Spiritual problem……America needs to Repent.
“Repentance is a turnaround of a sinful, self-centered way within us,” said Jonathon Cahn. “Repentance is a 180-degree turn in our heart and mind. A person is going one way, then realizes he is going the wrong direction and turns to the right direction. We are a tri-part creation of spirit, soul and body. We turn away from self-serving activities and turn to God, to walk in His ways.”
“Repentance is not a one-time occurrence, but a way of life,” Pastor Kevin Jessip added. “When we turn from our sin to the Savior, it’s that repentant attitude that continues through our life’s journey. An unbeliever doesn’t have a repentant heart toward his sin. An unbeliever, or one who thinks he or she is right with God, yet has not repented of sin, is living in self-deceit. On the other hand, a true Christian, a follower of Christ, trembles at God’s Word consistently, and he believes His Word, therefore, walks in a reverent fear of the Lord.”
I pray you will be moved by my message today.
