Amazing Grace by 9 Year Old Rapper JoJo Rock and Ozzy

Ozzy from The Sowers Group sings on this track with me. This is our African/Hip Hop version of the classic song Amazing Grace.

Ozzy grew up in The Congo Africa. His father died when he was a child his mother was left uneducated with 8 children and little hope of earning an income.

Ozzy was then sponsored through Compassion. He shared his sponsorship with his brother Mike and friend Kosto who are also members of The Sowers Group. They shared the uniform, separated books into individual papers and took turns going to school.

We recorded this song to let the world know that Compassion child sponsorship really works.

Little Angel Blesses Homeless People With Food and Water

America's anti Israel stance linked to natural disasters!

John McTernan, an expert in Biblical prophecy and the author of the book "As America Has Done to Israel". McTernan links the timing of economic disasters and natural disasters to moments in time when America has strongly promoted abortion, homosexuality, and the division of the land of Israel. In fact, nine of the ten "top ten natural disasters ranked by relief costs" found on FEMA's webpage occurred at a time when the U.S. went against Israel.

"Some of these judgments occurred within 24 hours of an American push against Israel. God warns us in His Word to not interfere in His covenant with the nation of Israel.

Four examples of judgment on the U.S. are given (the rest are in his book and DVD). In the first, McTernan cites that six business days after a huge pro-homosexual rally occurred on October 11, 1987, in the nation’s capital, the stock market experienced a big crash.

The second occurs during the Bush 41 Administration when President Bush is at the Madrid Peace Conference pressuring Israel to give up land. During the meeting, a hurricane traveling in an unusual northeast-to-southwest direction destroyed Bush’s home in Kennebunkport, Maine.

The third example occurred a year later in 1992, interestingly enough during a second Madrid Peace Conference in the U.S., when the dividing of Israel was again under discussion. Category 5 Hurricane Andrew ravaged Florida and Louisiana.

The last example takes place during the Clinton Administration when Clinton was pressuring Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to divide Israel. The Israelis thought that Netanyahu would be forced out politically if he went along with Clinton’s plans. Both Netanyahu and Yasser Arafat were in the U.S. to meet with Clinton. All of this was taking place when the Monica Lewinsky scandal came to light. It turned out that Clinton was the one impeached, even though he was not removed from office.

More examples of disasters occurring at the same time or soon after putting pressure on Israel.

McTernan states, “God is trying to warn America. We are in a collision course with Him.” Key verses in the Bible to read are Genesis 12:3, Joel 3:2, and most importantly Obadiah 1:15 which says, “The day of the LORD is near for all nations. As you have done (to Israel), it will be done to you; your deeds will return upon your own head.”

He states that Israel is the key to receiving either God’s blessing or His cursing, and this principle applies to both nations and individuals in their treatment of Israel.

This past May President Obama met with Netanyahu and made the link between establishing a Palestinian state and dealing with Iran’s nuclear weapons. Within days of their meeting, North Korea began testing a nuclear weapon and then threatened the U.S. with a nuclear strike on Hawaii. Interesting timing.

Regarding our current economic crisis, it began in November, 2007, at about the same time that the Annapolis Conference convened, in which President Bush was pressuring Israel to accept the Roadmap to Peace. Under this plan, Israel was being pressured to give up land in exchange for peace.

And to think that I have been blaming our economic crisis on liberals because they forced banks to lend money to individuals who lacked the ability to pay back their loans. Of course, that ticking time bomb was ready to go off. In spite of that, how much did the Roadmap to Peace play in the crisis for which we are still trying to recover?

Comparisons are made between President Bush (43) and President Obama in their treatment of Israel. McTernan states, “President Bush was more soft-gloved, with no direct arm twisting of Israel. President Obama has come out with an iron fist, treating Israel as an adversary; it’s extremely dangerous. The integrity of the United States is at stake.”

Today, President Obama once again spoke out against Israel before his adoring audience at the United Nations, where hating Israel has become a sport. John Bolten called Obama's speech at the UN "the most radical anti-Israel speech he's ever heard. Obama referred to the land won in the Six-Day War as "occupied" land.

"Two states living side by side in peace and security -- a Jewish state of Israel, with true security for all Israelis; and a viable, independent Palestinian state with contiguous territory that ends the occupation that began in 1967, and realizes the potential of the Palestinian people."

Based on what we have just heard, should we be anticipating yet another disaster in view of Obama's actions?

John McTernan shares much more about the meanings in the book of Obadiah. In verse 18, a “flame of fire” is described between the houses of Jacob and Joseph, which are Israel, and the house of Esau, which is the Palestinians. The Palestinians have made the mistake of trying to destroy Israel. Therefore, the promise in verse 15 will come true. What the Palestinians meant for evil toward Israel will fall back on them, and they will be totally destroyed as it says in verse 18: “the house of Esau will be stubble, and they will set it on fire and consume it. There will be no survivors from the house of Esau." Today’s Gaza was the land of the Philistines, Ephraim and Samaria are now the West Bank, and Gilead is Jordan. According to the Bible which is infallible, these areas will all be united with Israel. It’s only a matter of time.

But, back to Obama and his harsh treatment of Israel. If he forces Israel to be divided, God may just fulfill his promise in Obadiah 1:15. America could be divided, perhaps politically, in such a way as we have never seen before. With all that is taking place in Washington, D.C., that would not be too surprising. Or even worse, McTernan mentions a massive fault running down the center of our country. Interestingly, it is called the New Madrid fault (remember the Madrid Conferences), and the 1811-1812 New Madrid earthquakes were the greatest earthquakes in America.

President Obama’s foreign policy regarding Israel is literally a recipe for disaster. He may just encounter the wrath of God, and unlike gullible Americans, the Creator of the world sees right through that charismatic personality and fine rhetoric, and He is not in the least impressed.

America, beware, our president is playing with fire. He needs to learn that if you mess with Israel, you will regret it."

Talking To The Dead

Is it wrong to contact or communicate with the dead? Someone I know claims to have been visited by a deceased relative. Is this any different than praying to the dead, as in Roman Catholicism?

Isaiah 8:19
When men tell you to consult mediums and spiritists, who whisper and mutter, should not a people inquire of their God? Why consult the dead on behalf of the living?

The Old Testament term for communicating with the dead is "necromancy." (Deuteronomy 18:11, also read verse 10) It is forbidden by God: "There shall not be found among you... For whoever does these things is detestable to the Lord" (an "abomination," KJV).

Also see: 1 Samuel 28:3-20; 2 Chronicles 10:13, 14; Isaiah 8:19-22. The punishment for contacting the dead is very severe, if not repented of.

This must also include what Roman Catholicism claims is praying to the "saints" -- the deceased who have been beatified, canonized, or placed in a position of spiritual superiority by the hierarchy. (Scripture refers to all believers as "saints.") The real force at work in such "apparitions" (appearances of the deceased) is deception: demonic activity, evil spirits. Satan disguises himself as "an angel of light," it says in 2 Corinthians 11:14. (He doesn't approach us saying, "Boo!" or we'd run & hide.)

When prophecies or visions fail to come to pass, we know they're not of God (Deuteronomy 18:21-22). But even if a vision or prophecy does come to pass, scripture says, we are still instructed to examine or discern the source: if it doesn't glorify Jesus -- if it glorifies any other person, living or dead -- it's not of God.

When someone claims to have received a "vision" of the dead, it's really a deception of the enemy -- demon forces at work. Luke chapter 16 contains excellent instruction on the state of the dead, referring to an impassable separation between the after-life and this world. Those in the next world, saved or otherwise, simply do not return to deliver messages to the living:

"[Lazarus] died and was carried by the angels into Abraham's bosom," and the rich man died and suffered torment in Hades. A "great gulf" separated the two and was "fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence." (Luke 16:19-31)

Another example is the instance in which, at the death of his son, David testified: "I shall go to him, but he shall not return unto me." (2 Samuel 12:15-23)

Not all miracles are of God. Satan performs lying signs and wonders (Exodus 7:9-12; 8:7, 17-19; Deuteronomy 13:1-5; Matthew 24:24; Mark 13:22; 2 Thessalonians 2:9; Revelation 13:13-14, 16:14; 19:20) The magicians in the times of Moses and Daniel could perform some magic (Exodus 7:9-12; 8:7; Daniel 1:20) ... but their power is limited (Exodus 8:17-19; Daniel 2:2, 10, 27; 4:7; 5:7-8, 15).

Many Roman Catholics and others, lacking discernment* and knowledge of the Scriptures ("My people perish for lack of knowledge") -- and trusting the hierarchy of man -- fail to "test the spirits and see whether they be of God" (1 John 4:1). They assume the priests do that for them! Some of the primary points relative to this issue include:

If a sign or wonder predicted comes to pass, but the person is enticed to follow after another god, we are to reject it. (Deuteronomy 13:1-5) Also, if the message delivered is contrary to Scripture, it's not from God (Isaiah 8:20; 2 Timothy 3:16). Some religious messages don't glorify Jesus at all; rather, the "vision" is glorified and, repeated again and again, perpetuated by tradition.

The Roman Catholic practice of praying to and for the dead can be traced in part to the Old Testament apocryphal books (2 Maccabees 12:46 "It is a holy and wholesome thought to pray for the dead.") These books, rejected from the canon ("rule," or "standard") of Scripture, contain historical and geographical errors, and many teachings inconsistent with the rest of scripture: salvation by almsgiving; suicide; magic; angelic intercession; etc. Definitely nothing sturdy upon which to base one's eternal destiny.

* discernment is learned by experience (Hebrews 5:14), through knowledge of the Bible (Hebrews 4:12; 2 Timothy 3:15, 6; Ezekiel 44;23)
