Monday, April 11, 2011: (Susanna story, Daniel 13:1-64)
Jesus said: “My people, you have read how the two elders tried to have Susanna killed because she would not lie with them in sin. She chose not to sin and took her chance to fight them. Fortunately, Daniel questioned their testimony and the two elders lied about which tree they found her under. The law said that the false accusers should face the punishment that they were trying to force on Susanna, which meant that they were to be killed. This sense of injustice can even be found in America’s court rooms. If you have many high priced lawyers on your side, you may be able to win almost any case. The judge and lawyers make backroom settlements for money or pleading guilty to lesser charges for less time in prison. There are many injustices done to people, especially in the abuses of American courts. Many women are taken advantage of in divorces because they do not have enough money to hire a lawyer to plead their case. Pray that these injustices can be resolved as Daniel was able to settle this case of adultery.”

Jesus said: “My people, this vision of destruction of the buildings in a city, represents earthquake damage coming to a Japanese city. Currently, you are seeing 6.0 and 7.0 earthquakes occurring almost daily in Japan as this whole island is more vulnerable to earthquakes than most places. The Pacific Rim of earthquakes and volcanoes is most active in Japan right now, and these quakes could cause further damage to their cities. Pray for these people who have lost homes, loved ones, and are now facing nuclear pollution.”
