Several nights ago I had a dream and I just can’t get it out of my mind maybe bloging about it will help me.

Here it is:

I was in the back seat of a taxi with a pregnant white lady about to give birth. Her White husband was driving the taxi and He began to ask me to please deliver the baby and He knew He would not make it to the hospital in time. I told Him I had never done that before and I didn’t think I could. All the sudden the lady was giving birth and the the next thing I knew the baby was in my hands. It was a black baby and the Father looked at me for explanation and I gave it. I said don’t worry, your wife has not committed adultery this is a spiritual baby. It represents the orphans of Africa.

With those words the alarm sounded 3:40 am letting me know it’s time for work. The dream seemed so real I just can’t shake it.

In the Natural we just received word that food prices had doubled in Uganda due to the devalued American dollar. We have about 30 children in an orphanage in Entebee Uganda and we are just making it right now. I felt overwhelmed with “where are we going to come up with more money?”. That could have caused the dream. Or maybe it was the new license plates on my car that has MD on them as I have been joking I am now Dr John MD. Or maybe it’s because my spiritual kids Travis and Christy Kolder  just had a baby.

Or maybe just maybe we are to birth something in prayer to see the spirit of adoption released from Abba Father himself. I know this Jesus loves the children and His Father is the Father to the Fatherless. Join with me as we pray for the Lord to visit the orphans of Africa, God knows we don’t handle visitations well here in the states. Father visit the children with your grace and mercy and release provision for them. In Jesus name Amen.

We in America have historically been the most missions minded nation, reaching out to other nations. We see the picture of starving children around the world, and sacrifice our coke, and candy bar a day to send $25 a month to ease our conscious. While here in the US we have aborted 50 million babies since Jan. 22, 1973. At least we can say our numbers are lower, now down to 1.2 million a year, hope that makes you feel better.

My wife and I have been seeing Jesus break in and heal, and deliver many adults, over the last twenty years. I can safely say most everyone really messed up have serious pain traced back to their childhood issues of rape, molestation and all kind of abuse. Yet while Churches are dealing with adults with all their issues linked back to their childhoods they are shoving kids who are in the midst of the same junk into cute little children church programs, closing eyes to the pain in their hearts. Why? Because its to ugly to look at until violence erupts or self mutilation or God forbid a suicide happens. God help us please to see the children and not just see them but see them the way you see them as worth dieing for.

Foster Care ” God bless you as you bridge the Gap”

Children in foster care on September 30, 2005 was 513,000

Out of sight out of mind just give them medicine numb them do any thing hopefully they will grow up. That seems to be our nations solution. Faith based help was on the way, but don’t take a close look at that or you will shut the door and turn off the light and go away. We would throw them away rather than be inconvenienced by them.
 
God sees them and He has not shut the door and has not turned off the light. America wake up our kids need Jesus. Jesus is their only hope before its too late. Watch the news and you will see more violence against children every day, why? Maybe the devil knows something we have forgotten.
 
Matthew 18:3 And said, Verily I say unto you, Except ye be converted, and become as little children, ye shall not enter into the kingdom of heaven.
 
 
Matthew 19:13-15 13 Then were there brought unto him little children, that he should put his hands on them, and pray: and the disciples rebuked them. 14 But Jesus said, Suffer little children, and forbid them not, to come unto me: for of such is the kingdom of heaven. 15 And he laid his hands on them, and departed thence.

Is the American Dream that makes our personal pursuit of happiness the number one priority a biblical concept?

Does cute political quotes like NO CHILD LEFT BEHIND, or It takes a VILLAGE TO RAISE A CHILD do any thing to help the problem?

We Americans Have a huge beam in our eye and are going around the world and get the speck out of our neighbor’s eye. It is time for a change.

It is time for the Church to do what the government can’t and shouldn’t do.

  • LOVE THE CHILDREN
  • PUT THE CHILDREN BACK AT THE POINT OF FOCUS
  • MINISTER TO THE CHILDREN “ENTERTAINMENT DOES NOT EQUATE MINISTRY”
  • LISTEN TO THE CHILDREN “ASK QUESTIONS”
  • LET THEM BE INVOLVED IN MINISTRY
  • LEARN HOW TO SAY “I DON’T KNOW AND I AM SORRY”
  • LEAVE ROOM FOR THE HOLY SPIRIT TO MINISTER TO THE CHILDREN
  • IF YOU HAVE A “PROBLEM CHILD” THERE IS A HIDDEN PROBLEM THAT NEEDS TO BE DISCOVERED AND HEALED BY THE THE LORD, AND ONLY HE CAN DO THAT, BUT HE CAN USE YOU

Abba father have mercy on us.
