“The precious sons of Zion, valuable as fine gold, how they are regarded as clay pots, the work of the hands of the potter!”
“They ravished the women in Zion, the maidens in the cities of Judah.
“Princes were hung up by their hands, and elders were not respected.”
“Turn us back to You, O Lord, and we will be restored; renew our days as of old.”
How did Germany overcome the sick, evil, degrading, dehumanizing treatment, torture and putting to death of their fellow man during the Holocaust?
How does America love our fellow man and overcome our dehumanizing history of slavery of Africans? What monument can we erect representing justice, to say we acknowledge our sins and wicked ways and no more do we harm descendants of Africans? No more double standards of who receives mercy & honor.
“Honor all people.” 1 Peter 2:17
Thank you for Bishop T.D. Jakes’ speaking out on our history of slavery on TBN, and how to stand together and support Black and Brown people during this time.
“For I have not spoken on My own authority; but the Father who sent Me gave Me a command, what I should say and what I should speak.”
“‘Honor your father and your mother,’ and, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ ”
My friends take such loving care of their older parents. I wish they’d let the rest of the country how to care for their elders. Other countries keep them at home and honor them similar to my friends in the US, and there’s no such thing as nursing homes.
Sadly, many older Americans died in nursing homes during the Covid 19 virus. There’s enough blame to go around, but is there a solution for the condition of our hearts?
“Listen to your father, who gave you life, and do not despise your mother when she is old.”

God, I pray for Your mercy and wisdom. In Jesus’ name.
Psalm 51:6, “Behold, You desire truth in the inward parts, And in the hidden part You will make me to know wisdom.”
This verse came to my spirit one morning, later a friend played a teaching of the 51st Psalm.
Are we keeping our words? Teachers are held to higher standard (James 3:1)
Church ministers going against their own promises; brow-beaters with lectures; using world-view words speaking cynically about the needy: _________________; mock the Holy Spirit. Let the Spirit teach, convict.
“He who oppresses the poor reproaches his Maker, but he who honors Him has mercy on the needy.” Proverbs 14:31
“…Serving only themselves. They are clouds without water, carried about by the winds; late autumn trees without fruit, twice dead, pulled up by the roots;” Jude 1:12
“And when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:” John 16:8
“Let us rejoice and be glad and give him glory! For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready.”
Virgins with the extra oil for their lamps (Matthew 25:1-5)
