A cry for help

    Habakkuk's complaint to God
    RE: Westside complaint.
    Habakkuk Chpt. 1 verse 1-4: How long O Lord must I call for help. But You don't listen? Or cry out to You. Violence but You don't save. Why do You make me look at injustice? Why do You tolerate wrong? Destruction and violence are before me. There is strife and conflicts abound. Therefore the law is paralyzed and justice never prevails.
    The wicked hem in the righteous so that justice is prevented.
    God answers. Verse 5. For I am going to do something in your days that you wouldn't believe even if you were told.
    Statesboro Christians, children of God, I am asking in the name of Jesus. Let's get together and stop this crime in our towns and help save our young people where they won't fill the new jail. God said He will raise a city of Babylonians to punish Judah and his wickedness.
    We Christians will have to be the one God is raising up to combat this crime and violence in our city, not Statesboro police, BCS office, but God, people. In Matt. 24:6, Christ said you will hear of war, rumor of wars but the end of times will come.
    Christian friends, it's time we used the power of the Holy Spirit. Jesus' purpose of coming to earth was to bind Satan and to set free those enslaved by him. Mk. 16:17-18 and these signs will accompany those who believe in My Name. They will drive out demons. They will speak in new tongue. They will pick up snakes with their hand and when they drink deadly poison it will not harm them at all. They will place their hand on sick people and they will get well.
    Believers, let's get to work. We have a Westside prayer circle meeting every Wednesday at 10 a.m. at the vacant lot next to 23 West Grady Street.
