“The Bible says, “For I the LORD your God am a jealous God punishing the children for the sin of the fathers to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those love me and keep My commandments.”

Lord,  I hear the cries of  six million of your people, men, women, children

murdered, annhiliated in the holocaust,  and burnt.  We confess these atrocities as sin and humble ourselves before you in shame.  You have heard our plea and our repentance has come before your ears. 

Lord,  I see black smoke.  It  rises up and spreads out like a veil of darkness over the nations again.  The dark veil is the sin of our silence.  Just as we Germans have remained silent, the peoples and the nations are silent once again.  Again your people  Israel are hated, despised and rejected and yet we remain silent even in the church.  We are silent concerning the sin of our fathers.  We remain silent and behold the black smoke is covering us again.  From the land of unmerited grace we are calling out, “Nations arise for Tzion’s sake.  Open your mouths, ‘Never again!’”

Slander, hatred or death, Israel, we will never forsake you again.  You are our inheritance, our love, the  best thing for all nations.  Listen, receive the Word.  It will pervade your spirit.  No more silence. Never again!  Never again!  Never again!”
