God’s Homelessness Relief Message

Under Pharaoh and the Egyptians, the message was: MUST MAKE BRICKS.

Under the Nazis, the message was perfected and changed to: WORK WILL MAKE YOU FREE.

I will not deny there is work to be done in our world, not for a minute.  But when people are oppressed (whether by murderous slave masters, addiction, or poverty), God’s message is most decidedly NOT a work program.  Rather it is:

The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me,
because the Lord has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted,
to proclaim freedom for the captives
and release from darkness for the prisoners,
to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor…

    So correct, my good friend for even AFTER the war and prisoners released, to this day they are not free as they do not attest to JESUS. It was man of this world that enslaves and Jesus not from this world that liberates. Just one good reason to go with Jesus and stay away from the false hope of men.
