"My people are destroyed from lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also reject you as my priests because you have ignored the law of your God,I will also ignore your children." Hosea 4:6
On March 17, 2017, in an article written in Fox News, 501 children had been missing from the DC area.since January, 2017. The majority of the children are African American and Hispanic teenagers. Some are runaways, others, not. What are they running from and what are they running to? What has happened to the other children who did not run away, but are missing.
On July 17, the Chicago Tribune reported that 2,024 people have been shot this year. That is 199 fewer than 2016. Over 90% of the shootings are taking place in African American communities. The article states that this data represents the number of victims, not shooting incidents. Ages vary, but on an average it is young African Americans shooting one another, between the ages of 15-30.
African Americans have the largest abortion rate, greater than any other people group. We have aborted approximately 15 million babies: a higher number than all the slaves recorded killed during slavery; a larger number than all of the lives lost in American fought wars; a higher number than the combination of the populations of the six largest urban cities in America.
My God! What has happened? We don't love ourselves in or outside the womb. As a prophet, as a healing and deliverance minister, I look for truth, knowing that the truth is not always pretty, but it's truth that sets us free. I look for the spiritual root of a problem. "What has gone so wrong for us to hate ourselves, to hate our own people so much that we would rather kill one another, rather than look at and love one another?
I believe the answer is found in Hosea 4:6. Because we as adults are rejecting God's knowledge, His Word, His commandments, because priests or ministers have ignored the laws of God, God is ignoring our children. I know this sounds harsh. God does not want that any should perish, but if when ignore, when we reject what he has taught us regarding how to act toward one another, to love our neighbor, he will ignore our children. Our children are acting like no one loves them. Just review the statistics. They act like they have been rejected. You don't kill what you love. All of this killing is evil. It is satanic. Satan loves it that we are killing one another. His purposes for our lives is to kill, steal and destroy us. We are accomplishing his goal for us.
Luke 14:23 says, "The lord said to the servant, 'Go out into the highways and hedges, and compel them to come in, that my house may be filled.'..If they come to our churches today, what are they coming to? Obedience is better than sacrifice. The body of Christ needs to get out on the streets and take our cities and children back from the enemy.
Said to say, but, the answer Chicago is coming to grips with, in order to save their cities, is to possibly call in the National Guard. Marshall law may stop the killing temporarily, but it will not change the condition of the heart.
Do you have any insights?.
