"We don't need Revival...We need Roots."
I believe in "Christian Patriotism at its best" and that begins at the roots and the foundation of our forefathers and our faith.
This Message of Hope and Unity was birthed out of the Ashes of 9/11. My heart was pierced by the tragedy that took so many innocent lives. As a fourth-generation Christian from Pakistan, I owe a huge debt of gratitude to this great nation that was once a beacon of Hope and stood as a "City on a Hill" per the words of Puritan John Winthrop in his 1630 sermon "A Model of Christian Charity" aboard the ship Arbella.
America has sent out more missionaries than any Continent in the world to propagate the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I personally owe my spiritual heritage to an American missionary named Samuel Martin (see page "Samuel Martin Mark of a Missionary Soldier") who followed the “great commission in Matt. 28:19” and saved my ancestors from spiritual slavery.
Collectively as a nation, Americans are the most generous people who model true Christian Charity. Sadly, on 9/11, that beacon of Hope was extinguished when we as a nation were attacked and terrorism came to the shores of America. In the aftermath of the tragedy, I began to pray for the healing of our nation. A year later, the Lord called me into the ministry as He led me to the passage of Matt 12:21 in the Bible.
"In His (Jesus) Name the nations will put their Hope."
I was deeply touched as I saw the photo of American Heroes planting Old Glory in defiance and true American pride at the site of the toppled Twin Towers. The colors of our flag and what they represent served to inspire me to create the "Hope Pin" and pen the 9/11 Memorial Poem Card as a lasting tribute to the tragic and prophetic events of 9/11. As of 2016, I am a huge supporter for Donald J. Trump for President, as America has taken a serious Trip to the Cemetery in the Aftermath of the recent presidency of someone whose name I refuse to defile my website with.
Together they represent "Christian Patriotism at its Best" as quotes by the founding fathers of this great One Nation under God are penned on the back of the Memorial Poem Card. I also included an inspirational and Patriotic quote by our President George W. Bush who defiantly sought justice against the terrorists in the aftermath of 9/11.
This message serves a two-fold purpose now, as God took me "From the "Ashes of 9/11 to Romans 9-11" confirming the intrinsically Judeo-Christian roots of our Nation the United States of America, and the faith of our fathers. It has been an exciting Ten year journey through which God has revealed the importance of the "Semitic/Jewish Roots" of our faith, which are reflected in the "Hope Pin" and the message of IJNHope.
God clearly wanted to make a point about the importance of the number TEN and how beautifully and intrinsically it ties in with the the TENTH letter of the Hebrew letter Y (Yud) as well. The Y (Yud) is prominent in the design of the Lapel Pin (Hope Pin) that was inspired by His Holy Spirit. In addition, the letter J is also the 10th letter in the English Alphabet and is the first letter in our Lord's Name (Jesus) is the 10th letter in the English Alphabet as well. Please see the page: Why Ten/Yud?
Yisrael's National Anthem HaTikva (The Hope) beautifully illustrates this truth in verse 9 and beautifully connects with the message of Hope and Unity that is IJNHope.
HaTikvah 9. "Brother, listen, far away, The single voice, our vision, Because only with the last Jew, Lies also our last Hope!"
Yeshua/Jesus is the First and He is the Last (Rev. 1:17, 2:8, 22:13).
Immanu-El: Son of David; Son of Abraham; Son of God;
As "One Nation under God" inferring to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, we have a deep connection with Yisrael our only democratic ally in the Middle East. We also owe our "birth" as the greatest Christian Gentile nation to a little known Jew named Haym Salomon who financed the American Revolutionary War. We owe our Military might as a World Power to an Orthodox Jew named Alfred Mordecai who streamlined wrote the In 1841, he authored the first-ever ordnance manual for the US military that standardized the manufacture of weapons with interchangeable parts, a step in the evolution of American mass manufacturing.
As we look with anticipation at these difficult times, I welcome the opportunity to share my journey that chronicles this message of Hope and Unity with your Congregation and or Church. Please send your request through the Contact Us page.
In my upcoming book "Yisrael God's Equalizer" which is scheduled to be released within a year, I chronicle my TEN year journey revealing the importance of the Nation of Yisrael, the City of Yerushalayim, 9/11 and the fulfillment of "Everlasting Covenant" which He made with Abram nearly 4 thousand years ago.
May the God of Abraham/Avraham, Isaac/Yitzchak, and Jacob/Ya'akov bless America and Yisrael/Israel.
