President Obama Wins Re-election - Now What?

President Obama has won re-election and has been granted four more years in office. Some are overjoyed and others are in dismay. Whether he was your choice or not, guess what? You have an obligation to support him and pray for him as Commander in Chief. I say that not just, because he was my choice but even if Romney had won the same would be true.

It is time to put aside differences and come together as a nation. If you live in America, you are truly blessed and we must not take our blessings for granted. Every believer has a responsibility and duty to pray for our President and ask God to give him wisdom, skill, knowledge, understanding and that the fear of God would rest upon him.

Perhaps now, the Republicans party can focus on doing what is right for the good of the people rather than focusing on ensuring that President Obama would be a one-term president. HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES, CONGRESS, SENATORS AND ALL CABINET MEMBERS HAVE A MANDATE TO SUPPORT WHAT IS RIGHT FOR THE PEOPLE.

Billons were raised during this election campaign. Now if those that contributed thousands and millions of dollars would contribute money to help this nation come out of debt we would be able to make real progress. If the Donald Trumps of this world would use their money, power and influence to create jobs, open up training centers, support teachers, establish FREE medical clinics, food banks etc we would make progress as a nation. I encouraged Mr. Trump to release his anger and turn it into something positive to help others. The billionaires and millionaires should at least contribute their fair share. FULL POST

Halloween - Don't Be Tricked

Did you know that October 31st is considered New Year's Day for witches and warlocks? Their New Year starts October 31st and ends October 30 of the next year. According to Witches and Warlock Annual Wiccan Holidays, "The wall between earth and the underworld is thin at this time of year. On Halloween night, the wall opens. Samhain, the Lord of Darkness, rises from the underworld. He roams the world looking for lost souls. It is an evil and wicked night, a perfect night for a witch to celebrate New Year’s."


Unfortunately, many have unknowingly celebrated Halloween or known to them as Samhain as a day of innocent fun, games, tricks or treats. The wiccans/pagans aka witches, sorcerers, warlocks practice their craft daily during the month of October as they celebrate this season. The TV, radio and print help promote this celebration through advertisement for costumes, candy, parties etc. DON'T BE TRICKED BY HALLOWEEN.

INTERCESSORS MUST BE ON HIGH ALERT DURING THIS SEASON AND COUNTERACT THE WORKS OF SATAN THROUGH OUR PRAYERS AND PRAISE. Satan is releasing evil over regions sparking incidents of murder, kidnapping, human sacrifices, dismemberment, unthinkable crimes against persons and churches, hatred and violence. Many are waiting for this day to work evil because they can hide under costumes as they go out to rob, kill, and rape. We must bind up the strongman and ask God to send his warring angels to assist us in this battle. We must release the Word of God, Plead the BLOOD OF JESUS, SING PRAISES UNTO GOD, SEEK HIS PROTECTION, PEACE AND RELEASE LOVE. DON'T BE TRICKED BY HALLOWEEN. FULL POST

Terrorist Threat Elevated October (Part 2)

In part one of Terrorist Threat Elevated October we talk about how Sept 11, 2001 changed the lives of America and people everywhere. We talk about how and why a new system was introduced in April 2011 consisting of two levels. Elevated: Warns of a credible terrorist threat against the United States. Imminent: Warns of a credible, specific, and impending terrorist threat against the United States. As stated in part one, the moment Eve and Adam ate of the forbidden fruit war was declared on humanity.

Even as the nations began to tell the people how to prepare for terrorist attacks, God has told us how to prepare. He has identified the enemy: Genesis 3:15 KJV And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. Ephesians 6:12 KJV For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

He has given instructions on how to prepare for war. Luke 18:1 KJV And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray, and not to faint. Luke 21:36 KJV Watch ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man. FULL POST

September 11, 2001 is a day that changed America and the world. As Americans we became acquainted with new words: terrorist threat, color coded level of threats, imminent and elevated level, see it and report it. We received instructions on how to prepare in event of a threat. We were advised to prepare a plan and be sure that each member of the family especially our children knew what that plan was and knew what actions to take. We learned about possible ways that the enemy could strike.

The color coded system was put in place in response to 911 and was meant to be a method of warning the people about the possibility of a terrorist attack. Colors: (Red) High (Orange) Elevated (Yellow) Low (Green) and Guarded (Blue) The color-coded threat levels were doomed to fail because “they don’t tell people what they can do — they just make people afraid,” said Bruce Schneier, an author on security issues

In April 2011 a new two level system was introduced. Elevated: Warns of a credible terrorist threat against the United States. Imminent: Warns of a credible, specific, and impending terrorist threat against the United States.

When Adam and Eve ate the apple in the Garden of Eden mankind life was changed. Genesis 3:15 KJV And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel. THE WAR IS ON. FULL POST

Jesus loves the little children. All the children of the world Black and yellow, red and white They're all precious in His sight Jesus loves the little children of the world (written by Clare Herbert Woolston). Our children need to know that Jesus loves them. Sometimes, as parents we are quick to point out the negative things our children do, talk about their inabilities and their failures. Some parents make a point of telling their children what they are not and will never be i.e. never amount to anything, just like your dad or mom, dummies etc. We need to affirm and validate our children more.

I remember eating meals at the table with my family. Everyone came and set down together. No one grabbed a plate to take to his or her bedroom or the living room or anywhere else. On Saturday nights I remember my family and relatives would come together to pray. Yes, parents and kids kneeling together in the living room. I remember my mother anointing us with oil and praying for us everyday before we went to school. Unfortunately, many children do not have anyone to cover him or her in prayer.

There can be several reasons for this. Some examples are death of biological parent, parent’ incarceration, drug use, or being removed from parents due to neglect, sexual or physical abuse. FULL POST

Chick-fil-A Dares to Affirm Faith

Recently the Baptist Press a religious newspaper interviewed Dan Cathy and when questioned about the company policies and beliefs he made a statement affirming his faith. The statement:
"We are very much supportive of the family -- the biblical definition of the family unit. We are a family-owned business, a family-led business, and we are married to our first wives. We give God thanks for that.” We operate as a family business ... our restaurants are typically led by families; some are single. We want to do anything we possibly can to strengthen families. We are very much committed to that," Cathy emphasized.” We intend to stay the course," he said. "We know that it might not be popular with everyone, but thank the Lord, we live in a country where we can share our values and operate on biblical principles

He did not state that we will not serve gays, we hate gays, they are not welcome in our place of business. He stated "We are very much supportive of the family - the biblical definition of the family unit"

During an interview on the Ken Coleman Show he affirmed his faith. His statement:” I think we are inviting God's judgment on our nation when we shake our fist at Him and say, 'We know better than you as to what constitutes a marriage,'" Cathy said. "I pray God's mercy on our generation that has such a prideful, arrogant attitude to think that we have the audacity to define what marriage is about." FULL POST

The world is still reeling over the recent tragic events in Colorado. A long gunman enters a theater and shoots 71 persons killing 12. What kind of person would do such a thing? He must be a monster. Our society glamorizes violence, hate, and killing. Scenes of mayhem, violent acts of anger and rage in the movies, video games, and TV shows saturate our lives. These things have a greater impact on the weak minded, and the mentally unstable.

There is another factor to consider. Ephesians 6:12 KJV For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. What happen in Colorado is an example of manifested evil. This is what demonic power looks like. We see it every day as many are killed in drive-by shooting, children wounded and killed while playing outside their homes, children snatched from their beds, kidnapped and killed, Innocent people caught in the crossfire of gang activity. Jeremiah 9:21 For death is come up into our windows, and is entered into our palaces, to cut off the children from without, and the young men from the street. FULL POST

Do you know how to pray effectively? A formula that I have found guarantees results in prayer. The formula is simple and involves the combination of prayer, God's word,and faith that God will honor his word. My motto for praying is: Speak the answer not the problem. The answer is in the word of God. God is so awesome and in his wisdom, his word covers every aspect of our lives and therefore an answer for our situations.

Sometimes we confuse complaining with praying. An example of complaining: God my rent is due; I don't know what to do. My husband don't love me, my children won't obey me. I am so sick in my body and the test results are not good. Please God help me. This sounds like you singing the blues.

An example using the formula ( prayer,God's word and faith): Heavenly father, thank you for being my God that provides for all of my needs. I agree with your word today that I shall not want because you are the good shepherd you take care of me. My husband loves me as he does himself and I reverence him. My children are obedient and rise up and call me bless. I bless you for all the benefits you have given me through the stripes on your body; you forgive my iniquities and heal my body. I run to you and am safe for you are a present help. I bow down and worship you for you are worthy and all power belongs to you. FULL POST

You Must Forgive

YOU MUST FORGIVE the word of God declares that you must do so. Jesus, became the sacrificial lamb that took our punishment, shed his blood that we may be forgiven. Jesus, dying on the cross set the example for forgiveness as he asked his father to Forgive them that were crucifying him.

Forgive as defined by Webster 1) to give up resentment of or claim to requital for forgive an insult : to grant relief from payment of, forgive a debt 2 to cease to feel resentment against (an offender) : pardon, forgive one's enemies. According to Strong's Greek Definition: aphiemi (af-ee-ay-mee) forgive is to. To cry, forsake, lay aside, leave, omit, away, remit, suffer.

Why must we forgive? In biblical terms when we ask God to forgive us of our sins what we are asking is that he takes away, wash and cleanse us from our sins, from our wrongdoing. We are asking him to release us from the penalty of that sin, to not punish us even though we are deserving of the punishment. We are asking him in essence to "let us go", to "overlook" our sins.

One of the conditions that God requires of us in order to be forgiven is to forgive others as well. Mark 11:26 But if ye do not forgive, neither will your Father which is in heaven forgive your trespasses. Luke 11:24 And forgive us our sins; for we also forgive every one that is indebted to us. And lead us not into temptation; but deliver us from evil. FULL POST

President Obama position on gay rights has been according to him "evolving".

2004 radio interviews "I'm a Christian. And so, although I try not to have my religious beliefs dominate or determine my political views on this issue, I do believe that tradition, and my religious beliefs say that marriage is something sanctified between a man and a woman."

When asked his opinion of gay marriage:
2008 - “I do not support gay marriage. Marriage has religious and social connotations, and I consider marriage to be between a man and a woman.” State he support civil unions for gay couples but marriage is only for a man and a woman.

In 2010, he admitted that he struggled with the issue and that his views were "constantly evolving." In Wednesday's interview, he said he came to his new position over the course of several years. It is important for me to go ahead and affirm that I think that same-sex couples should be able to get married,"

He expresses that his daughters has friends who parents are gay and they would not understand why their friend’s parents would be treated differently.

At least one of his spiritual advisors, Joel Hunter, expresses "disappointment" on this change of position. FULL POST
