Reaching the Lost
"My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge:..." Hosea 4:6
We often hear ministries speak of "converting the Jews." While I would love for Jewish people to accept Jesus/Yeshua as their Messiah, the urgency of conversion does not lie with them.
Jewish people, for the most part, have intact communities and families, and God has reserved a remnant of the 12 tribes of Israel who will be sealed first (see Revelation 7). On the other hand, most black families are fragmented and broken; therefore, it's clear that this is where converting the lost, including Muslims, is most urgent.
Black-on-black crime (including children being killed in crossfires) is out of control; over 70% of black children are born out of wedlock; and while we black people make up about 13% of the population, we have 40% of abortions nationwide. We need to convert the lost in our communities -- in the projects, in the streets, etc. So, it's clear that conversion needs to be done in the black community.
While there are many good Black Christians, too many in our inner cities (in large cities and small towns) are lost, even with the many churches embedded in our neighborhoods because the truth is not being taught or preached.
In addition, there is also an urgency with converting Muslims. Understand this: There is no plan of salvation for Gentiles, which includes Muslims, outside of Jesus/Yeshua. Neither Allah nor Muhammad has the power to save Muslims, only Jesus who was sent by the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, can save Muslims.
To that end, I thank God that there are numerous reports that Muslims have had (or are having) dreams in which they see Jesus, and because of this experience, they are converting to Christianity. This is a blessing because in most, if not all, Muslim countries, preaching the Gospel is either restricted or banned altogether. Moreover, thanks to the Internet (including YouTube), Muslims (particularly in the West) are being exposed to Christian teachings.
While I respect that people can worship whom they wish in this country, I believe that it's important for us to spread the Gospel to the lost, which includes Muslims, and those in the inner cities, such as in Chicago, Newark, Brooklyn, Philadelphia, etc., where there's a genocide going on with black people. Let us pray and fight that we can convert the lost. God bless!
