Re: DJs and Ending Human Trafficking
Ezekiel great topic man. Isaiah 58 is a great chapter. I Think you know where I stand on the issue but it really doesn’t matter what I think lets look at what God thinks of justice.
He ensures that orphans and widows receive justice. He shows love to the foreigners living among you and gives them food and clothing.
( maybe some of the people who are always complaining about foreigners being he in the states should read this)
“True justice must be given to foreigners living among you and to orphans, and you must never accept a widow’s garment as security for her debt.
Let true justice prevail, so you may live and occupy the land that the LORD your God is giving you.
‘Cursed is anyone who denies justice to foreigners, orphans, or widows.’ And all the people will reply, ‘Amen.’
James 1:27 (KJV)
“ Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.
psalm 89:14 Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne; love and faithfulness go before you. (Gods kingdom rests on justice and rightousness)
The Message (MSG)
21-24″I can’t stand your religious meetings.
I’m fed up with your conferences and conventions.
I want nothing to do with your religion projects,
your pretentious slogans and goals.
I’m sick of your fund-raising schemes,
your public relations and image making.
I’ve had all I can take of your noisy ego-music.
When was the last time you sang to me?
Do you know what I want?
I want justice—oceans of it.
I want fairness—rivers of it.
That’s what I want. That’s all I want.
Jesus even said that the spirit of the Lord was upon Him to set captives free. That mandate didn’t stop with Christ because the word tells me that the same spirit that was in christ resides in me. (The same spirit that raised jesus from the dead resides in me) It even says that it is no longer I who live but Christ within me.
I am excited about some of what God is doing about this topic and I know He has some big things in the works for this community and this issue. Be encouraged we can stop this evil.
