“WHO ARE THESE MEN? WHERE DID THEY COME FROM? HOW DID THEY BECOME WHO THEY ARE?”

My heart was gripped again this morning with why a ministry such as OJC is needed as I began to read again the post you are about to read. Tiffany Larson is a person of many talents, singer, musician, photographer, leader, communicator but what I admire most about her is how her love for Jesus is walked out in compassion for the orphan. She is an intercessory missionary at IHOP-KC and apart of OJC’s Justice Fellowship and can be found many times during the week working with adoptive kids or crying out for Justice for orphans and the victims of human trafficking.

Her latest post called “Enslaved” will open your eyes and move your heart to action. You can read more of Tiffany’s posts at http://onevoicefor163million.wordpress.com/.

Enslaved
by Tiffany Larson

Enslaved BoyAs I continue on this journey of asking the Lord for His heart for the fatherless, and as I hear stories of the horrific things that take place in our world today, I’ve been hit hard with reality! I’ve been confronted with a truth that feels so desperately hopeless that the only thing I can do is hold on to surpassing greatness of the mercy of my GOD!

As I hear the horrible stories of little girls being sexually abused by their fathers and seeing the empty shell that it leaves them, and of  families who adopted and only to find out that their adoptive child was sexually abusing their biological daughter.  Then Monday night comes, the night that my team leads the set in the Prayer Room to pray against human trafficking.  Most Monday nights we focus on the women that are enslaved by the wickedness of men but this night we prayed  for the spirit of lust to be broken and the traffickers to be set free!  Then it hit me….

WHO ARE THESE MEN? WHERE DID THEY COME FROM? HOW DID THEY BECOME WHO THEY ARE?

One by one I saw in my mind’s eye little boys who were RAPED and BEATEN by their fathers and mothers. Who were abandoned to the streets before they knew how to walk. Who were abused by the world in all of it’s evil forms. Little boys who are in desperate need of affection, of someone to be proud of them, of the strength of a father’s embrace so that it’s safe to be weak.

Enslaved Man

Now I am grown, and I do what I know.

Taking lives with the same violence that was shown.

Broken inside yet no one would ever know.

I rape, I beat, I kill,

Will this torture inside ever be still?

Does anyone hear, Does anyone see,

The bondage of sin which has created a killer in me?

As I write this, I’m confronted with my own sin.

How we have ALL fallen short of the the glory of God.  Our righteousness is like filthy rags before Him. It’s ONLY by His great grace and mercy that we can be free of the wages of sin that so easily entangle us. We are ALL in need of a savior and the great revelation of our heavenly Father who LONGS TO GIVE US THE KINGDOM!

Jesus, I plead your blood over my sins and the sins of my nation! And I ask that You would pour out the spirit of Elijah like never before!  Jesus, would you break the bonds of wickedness and release Your Holy Spirit into the hearts of men that are being held captive by the evil one!

“He will restore the hearts of the fathers to their children and the hearts of the children to their fathers, so that I will not come and smite the land with a curse.” Malachi 4:6
