Today Is My Birthday

Tuesday, January 22nd, 2019

Yesterday we celebrated MLK’s birthday. Several candidates announced a presidential bid yesterday. Most if not all of those candidates are pro-abortion. Today is my birthday.

Today is also the anniversary of the horribly bad Roe v. Wade legislation which become law in 1973.

I’m not marching for life today. We did that last Friday at the annual March for Life where I was blessed to do the closing prayer. However, I am praying; and blogging.

Don’t be fooled y’all. Abortion is “a pig in a poke”. [Means something that is bought or accepted without knowing its value or seeing it first; an old fashioned saying from a 68 year old woman. Indulge me.]

Today, on my birthday, I’m praying for God to end the scourge of crimes against humanity with abortion at the top of the list. Today I’m not judging anyone. I’m just praying. Why? Because I’m post abortive; repentant and redeemed.

I can’t help wondering how long we will have to deal with the dichotomy of killing innocent babies in the womb [and often maiming their mothers in the process] and calling it good?

Meanwhile, we are fighting over a wall.

Actually building a security wall to assist in protecting American citizens as well as serving innocent immigrants seeking a better life is a good idea. That wall is a practicality.

On the other hand, tearing down the walls of hatred and bigotry in our hearts; that’s also a good idea. After all, we are not separate races; we are not color blind. We are one blood, one human race. [Acts 17:26]

While on yesterday some candidates cited MLK as inspiration for running for president in 2020, they seem to forget that MLK was a prophet and Bible preacher. To use his name and then promote abortion (as some if not all of those candidates do) and other crimes against humanity is contradictory.

During this season I often share LET FREEDOM RING. It’s a song I wrote in 1973, the year Roe v. Wade emerged to wreak havoc resulting in the deaths of over 60 million babies in the ensuing years.

Today is my birthday y’all. Pray with me that God will let justice run down as waters, and righteousness as a mighty stream. [Amos 5:24] LET FREEDOM RING.

God Speaks to the Shutdown

Saturday, January 19th, 2019

Early [1/19/19] this morning my friend Sylvia called me with a word which inspired this meme. I immediately posted the meme on social media when we hung up. I was about to check out of a DC hotel to return from the March for Life and Sudden Uprising conference.

In the hotel parking area, a young man approached me and requested a “selfie.” He explained that he had just seen my meme on Instagram. Wow! I realized that God really cares about the SHUTDOWN, and he can use INSTAGRAM to speak to us. After all, He’s used stranger things: like a donkey and a burning bush. Just saying…

God bless you. Here’s Sylvia’s word:

WORKING FOR THE
😊 LORD 😊
“The one who is unwilling to work shall not eat.” 2 Thessalonians 3:10

Great Morning My Friend 😍

I Pray this message give you great Joy as I received.

Looking at the government shutdown can bring hardships and bitterness, if you are observing it through your natural eyes. BUT if you are seeing it through the eyes of Jesus, this is a Great Opportunity to see God ‘s Phenomenal Hand at Work. Body of Christ we have been in training long enough.

ARISE , the field is open to show the salvation of God. Praying, Loving, Witnessing, Giving, Helping One Another.

When David came back from War, his city was burned down. Women, Children were all taken, he ask the Lord Do I Pursue. The Lord answered, “PURSUE “

(1 Samuel 30:8) he did and got it all back. Now is the time Body of Christ to work for the Lord.

Let the world see the True Worshippers.

The Holy Spirit will train You. Handbooks are available (Bible)

Benefits: Eternal Life.
Are you willing to work for the Lord and eat or unwilling to work and starve? I pray God’s Holy Spirit Give You an understanding of this message.

Working with Jesus in Love, Sis Sylvia

Promise: All things are possible with God. (Mark 10:27)

HALLELUJAH ‼️🙌🏾‼️

Marching for Life, Congressman King’s Our Brother, The Wall Makes Sense, MLK DAY All About Love

Friday, January 18th, 2019

As “boots on the ground” in Washington, DC for the 24th Annual National Memorial Prayer Service and the March for Life today, I’m also getting calls to defend Congressman Steve King for racist remarks. Meanwhile, my family and I are in the heat and heart of the celebration of the 90th birthday of my uncle Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. And people are still fighting about the wall.

I’m being asked if Congressman King a racist? Actually, from my point of view, until we all accept the scientific, philosophical and spiritual truth that we are all one human race, one Blood, we’re all a little racist.

Think about it. As long as we continue to refer to ourselves in our separate ethnic groups as different races we will never break away from racism. Act 17:26 of the Bible (NIV) says, “From one man he made all the nations, that they should inhabit the whole earth; and he marked out their appointed times in history and the boundaries of their lands.” This is why Uncle MLK suggested that we should be brothers and sisters, and not be foolish.

Along with sharing our human commonality, Congressman King and I mutually share regard for the sanctity of life. So I’m praying for my brother.

Also, this weekend, as our nation forges on towards trying to reopen our government by agreeing on a solution to secure the southern border let’s remember that love of one’s nation is not grounds for hate of another nation or another group of humans. Actually, the wall makes sense for now. We can dream for that day when the walls and barriers won’t be needed, and that pre-born babies are allowed to cross the barriers of the womb. We pray for an end to all crimes against humanity; born and unborn.

Let’s pray for all our brothers and sisters, today and moving ahead. May we always be mindful that our good deeds and good intentions can always be attacked when we are not shielded by the reality of not being separated by the human concept of different races. We are all created by God as One Human Race. We’re not color blind. Let’s agree with MLK. It’s all about Agape Love. Let the healing begin.

African American Leaders Unite Around the Wall to Help Avoid Looming Crisis

Thursday, January 10th, 2019

Some claim that building a wall is “medieval solution” to a modern problem. The wheel is an ancient solution too. Nobody’s complaining about that. POTUS is on target. Walls do work; as in the days of Ezra and Nehemiah, walls are still viable solutions. Why now? Just days away are the March for Life and the Martin Luther King, Jr. Holiday yet America is in crisis at the southern border.

As an African American voice for justice, a defender of the sanctity of life, and perhaps most importantly a Christian evangelist, I stand with President Trump as he labors to build a wall. From my perspective, compassion trumps terror. Our prayers are needed more than ever. We must rally around the wall to avert crisis.

Having survived and in many cases overcome tyranny, oppression and racism in America, we as African Americans are close to the heartbeat of justice and compassion. We are not color blind. Our hearts are touched by the plight of all children and their families; not just at the border, but here at home as well.

Children in the womb, in cribs, in school, in jail, with parents behind bars, on the streets, at our borders; many are in danger. We must have responsible compassion for them all.

My goddaughter, Angela Stanton King, co-founder of the American King Foundation writes: “The process of draining the swamp, is a process of seeking genuine true justice, jubilee, pardon, and forgiveness. We’re going to continue to discover that there are some very thin lines between right, wrong, justice, and injustice. Meanwhile, we live in a world where security is necessary. The Wall plan is viable.”

Rev. Bill and Dr. Deborah Owens, Founders of CAAP write: “Christians have a responsibility to help those in need, including the undocumented immigrants at our southern border. At the same time, we must also respect the need to secure our borders and ensure the safety of all U.S. citizens. The African-American community has been gravely injured by unfettered illegal immigration, which has resulted in loss of jobs, loss of housing, and other economic hardship.”

Collectively, we stand with President Trump in the battle for the soul of America. I’m praying that POTUS builds the wall in the manner that Ezra and Nehemiah did in days of old.”

As Commander and Chief of America, POTUS is fighting for the soul of our nation. In his address to the nation on January 8, 2019, President Donald J. Trump speaks to the people of America:

  • There is a growing humanitarian and security crisis at our southern border.
  • Customs and Border Patrol agents continue to encounter thousands of illegal immigrants at our southern border. 
  • Meanwhile, Americans are continually at risk from uncontrolled, illegal migration. 
  • This climate strains public resources and drives down jobs and wages for the American people as well as the legal immigrants who are here. 
  • Among those ethnic communities hardest hit are African Americans and Hispanic Americans.
  • Sadly, our southern border is a pipeline for vast quantities of illegal drugs, including meth, heroin, cocaine, and fentanyl.
  • As a result, every week, 300 of our citizens are killed by heroin alone, 90 percent of which floods across from our southern border. 
  • If something isn’t done, and soon, more Americans could die from drugs this year than were killed in the entire Vietnam War.
  • Last month, 20,000 migrant children were illegally brought into the United States — a dramatic increase.  These children are used as human pawns by vicious coyotes and ruthless gangs. 
  • One in three women are sexually assaulted on the dangerous trek up through Mexico.  Women and children are the biggest victims, by far, of our broken system.

“This is a humanitarian crisis — a crisis of the heart and a crisis of the soul,” he asserted.

Thankfully, the President is not alone in his efforts to serve the people of America as well as the immigrant families who are flooding our border. The president further appeals to the soul of the American people with a call to heart:

  • America works hard to welcome millions of lawful immigrants who enrich our society and contribute to our nation.
  • In the last two years, ICE officers made 266,000 arrests of aliens with criminal records, including those charged or convicted of 100,000 assaults, 30,000 sex crimes, and 4,000 violent killings.
  • This is the tragic reality of illegal immigration on our southern border.  This is the cycle of human suffering that POTUS is determined to end.
  • We must fall to our knees and then rise and rally to the call.
  • The president’s proposal includes requests from Homeland Security for cutting-edge technology for detecting drugs, weapons, illegal contraband, and many other things. Also included in his proposal are requests for more agents, immigration judges, and bed space to process the sharp rise in unlawful migration fueled by our very strong economy.
  • The plan also contains an urgent request for humanitarian assistance and medical support.
  • There is also an urgent request that Congress will close border security loopholes so that illegal immigrant children can be safely and humanely returned back home.
  • In addition, as an overall approach to border security, law enforcement professionals have requested $5.7 billion for a physical barrier.  At the request of Democrats, it will be a steel barrier rather than a concrete wall.
  • This barrier is absolutely critical to border security.  It’s also what our professionals at the border want and need.

Today, I join my colleagues in the faith in a cry for prayer and compassion as we face this present danger.

Speaking from a platform in support of diversity and compassion, Bruce LeVell, Executive Director of NDC Trump writes: “As a follower of Christ, my convictions are to set up processes to aid those subjected to evil. Meanwhile we must protect our citizens. Mr. President, build that wall!”

Bishop Leon Benjamin, Coalition of Leaders United makes an urgent appeal: “This is a Humanitarian Effort. A Crisis of the Soul and Heart! Time to Stop It and Keep America Safe! Secure Our Borders and Build the Wall!”

Day Gardner, Founder of National Black Prolife Union speaks in support: “President Trump is presenting brilliant and compassionate solutions to the crisis. I pray that the masses unite in prayer and action to avoid disaster.”

Rev. Dean Nelson, Chairman of the board for the Frederick Douglass Foundation agrees: “The proper role of our government is to protect its citizens before it doles out benefits to others. Securing our boarder is a necessity to protect American workers and crack down on Human trafficking.”

In conclusion, we urge all Americans to pray for a speedy reconciliation among our leaders for the sake of the children, and the soul of America.

2019 New Year challenges will bring our nation to our knees.

Monday, January 7th, 2019

With 2019 unfolding, we leave the roller coaster year of 2018 behind us. Now moving into 2019, we can expect more fireworks which will be accelerated in the Spirit.

In 2018 there were more ups and downs than we could have imagined. From the Supreme Court controversy which accelerated the sanctity of life debate, to the hair raising mid-term elections that sparked excessive strife, to the increasing pressures surrounding border security; the heat is on. Where there’s smoke, there’s fire.

Interestingly enough, in the heat of the moment, most of America agrees with our president; national security is a major concern. Many also support his leadership for sanctity of life, no tax payer dollars funding abortion, improving our economy, lower unemployment rates and higher economic growth rate, and his international gains. The MAGA agenda is working.

As we move through 2019, with the March for Life and the Martin Luther King week ahead of us, please be encouraged to mend fences and build bridges. Agape love and prayer should be allowed to govern us; and we must not allow ourselves to be divided by politics. Let this be a year of overcoming crimes against humanity such as racism and abortion; not color blind, but with eyes wide open.

Remember, love and prayer brought us through 2018 and will be needed this year and must continue on into 2020 when we start the next round of elections.

There will always be ups and downs; and there will be fireworks. Pray for a conciliatory end of the government shut down. Some are asking why we build fences and install burglar alarms on our personal properties; but refuse to protect our nation? Reasonable question.

I think we can all agree that we all want a secure America. The real issue is discovering how we must go about accomplishing that goal. Here are two viewpoints, one from Bruce LeVell, Executive Director of the National Diversity Coalition for Trump and the second from Chuck Norris.

The year 2019 brings an opportunity for our nation to seek God. We must not argue about politics; rather we must pray. We need to repent for our sins. We need to forgive others. We need to be mindful of the beatitudes of Matthew 5:1-12.

In closing, here’s a 2019 message on YouTube.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
