Recently the greed that exists was shown forth in a most pompous way, when the secretary of state Hillary Clinton traveled to China. Our brothers and our sisters in the Lord Jesus Christ are suffering horribly at the hands of the Chinese government. They may put on a polite face for the world to see, yet China is a cruel, unmerciful, communist nation that hates Christianity and especially hates the preaching of The Gospel. Check out for yourself what some of our blessed brothers and sisters are suffering at http://www.chinaaid.org This is an atrocity, on any level, the Obama administration prides itself on being one of compassion, change and all about hope. Yet one major political figure in this administration who is Hillary Clinton on her trip to China said " human rights can't interfere with the global economic crisis, the global climate change crisis (which is an invention of man) and the security crises."

So let me translate this for you, money takes precedence over the fact that there are Christians among other groups in China suffering at the hands of the wicked government there. America out of her greed has turned a blind eye to this all in the name of the economy. Does anyone stop to think that the God who owns the cattle on a thousand hills, who owns the world and the fullness thereof, who owns the universe and every last thing in it, could be the One who turns this around?? Maybe if we would humble ourselves and seek His face He then would heal our land. I read in Jeremiah tonite and now I know it was not by accident, the Lord through the prophet Jeremiah condemned the king because he put selfish gain above the oppression of people. Oh how this sounds like what happened the other day as the ambassador for the U.S went to visit China.
God has not changed, the Lord still desires that we put the oppression of people above money. Could it be that the reason we are in the mess that we are in, is because we have given ourselves to the worship of money?? Could it be that we are in the situation we are in because we have forsaken the Lord and He has returned the favor?? Oh that we would seek the Lord, and humble ourselves before His mighty hand, oh that we would turn from our wicked ways and cry out to the Living God who is ready to judge the living and the dead!!!
