When I was 3 years old I went into my dad’s office and told him I wanted to give my life to Jesus and make him my Lord and Savior, so in that moment my dad helped and walked me through the prayer of salvation and the presence of the Lord touched me and changed my life.
It was the very beginning of a beautiful relationship with Jesus and a deep desire and hunger to know him, and daily he showed me his heart. It is never that there’s a mission or a calling he gives without the foundation being to know him, to know I am truly known by him, and have a intimate relationship with him. It was at this age he told me that I would go into the darkest places of the world and eradicate slavery, he showed me many strategies, faces, images that nobody would want a 3 year old to see but it was in the context of his presence. Then, I didn’t know the names Sex Trafficking, Human Trafficking, Labor Trafficking as I do today, I only knew the word SLAVERY, which that can mean many things but the definition of Slavery is, bondage, servitude refer to involuntary subjection to another or others. Slavery emphasizes the idea of complete ownership and control by a master: to be sold into slavery. Bondage indicates a state of subjugation or captivity often involving burdensome and degrading labor: in bondage to a cruel master.
- We can become a slave to many things with the absence of Jesus, but his word says once we have asked him into our hearts and chosen to make him our Lord and Savior we are no longer slaves.
- “So you are no longer a slave, but God’s child; and since you are his child, God has made you also an heir.” (Gal 4:7)
- There is a slavery where the innocent that are made to be slaves by torture, rape, coercion, drugs, trauma and more, they had no choice, had no fight, no voice and that is Sex Trafficking and Child labor.
- To truly know
Jesus is to know his heart, to know what he’s saying daily and partner with that as he shares. So to see slavery end and the generations of voiceless children and youth come to him its our job teach each and everyone who there Heavenly Father really is and who they are through his eyes, and teach them his word which is the main weapon against the enemy.
It says in the bible:
“Then the King will say to those on His right, ‘Come, you who are blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. 35‘For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me something to drink; I was a stranger, and you invited Me in; 36naked, and you clothed Me; I was sick, and you visited Me; I was in prison, and you came to Me.’ 37“Then the righteous will answer Him, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry, and feed You, or thirsty, and give You something to drink? 38‘And when did we see You a stranger, and invite You in, or naked, and clothe You? 39‘When did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ 40“The King will answer and say to them, ‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me.’
41“Then He will also say to those on His left, ‘Depart from Me, accursed ones, into the eternal fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels; 42for I was hungry, and you gave Me nothing to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me nothing to drink; 43I was a stranger, and you did not invite Me in; naked, and you did not clothe Me; sick, and in prison, and you did not visit Me.’ 44“Then they themselves also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry, or thirsty, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not take care of You?’ 45“Then He will answer them, ‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’ 46“These will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.” (Matthew 35:34-46)
So see it is our job as Christians to do exactly this which means its not a separate calling for only some Christians and some ministries to focus on ending this horrible and heart breaking type of slavery but if everyone would Unite it would end. This can no longer be a silent matter or think its to big. The same for bringing the awareness of what Islam is, What Muslims really believe according to what the Kuran says. The Truth is Trafficking is very close to becoming the biggest money making business in the World its not a little problem, and Isis is only growing more powerful and bigger in numbers. Both Traffickers and ISIS have many things in common.
- 1)They both are being used by the devil.
- 2)They are focused, dedicated, and unified in there mission and planning.
- 3)They have a Global mindset
- 4)They want denomination and control and do not care about humanity
- 5)They are going after our children and generations coming
- 6)They are misguiding youth, using them as puppets and playing with their future.
That’s just to mention a few.
Isis and Traffickers, they are not sitting there daily thinking about what will the Christians, Americans or others do. But because they have a global mindset and united in that, they are willing to do whatever it takes even if its at there own lives or there families to make there target and plan become a reality. A lot of Christians do not have a global mindset which is what God wants they have a “me” focus and because of that there isn’t unity or focus so there getting weaker not stronger and there confused.
“Why do you call me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do what I tell you?” Luke 6:46
“Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.” John 14:12
We as the body of Christ have one mission that will never change
Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age” (Matthew 28:19-20).
In knowing all this,we cannot turn a blind eye or a deaf ear any longer. And see the generations now and the ones coming not knowing who God is and who they are in him, every issue with traffickers and ISIS is they do not know who God is, If everyone in church leadership, Mothers and Fathers began to do this with every young person in there path way or the children entrusted to them we would no longer see the slavery as we do today.
Just think what a Generation would be, would look like if they knew who they were and who’s they are, if they were breathing in and out the very living word of the Almighty and All powerful God, what world now would you be living in, They would be a Generation of Peacemakers, unmovable unshakable, fearless, wise and writing a new future everywhere they step.
