Your Health Is Your Wealth!

Your Health Is Your Wealth!
By Pastor Mel Keyes
www.pastormelkeyes.com

Too many times we take our health for granted not knowing that in more ways than one “Our health is one of the greatest assets of our wealth.” Just think about it, what good would having a fortune be if your health and capacity to enjoy it is destroyed?
Mr. Armand Puyolt, outstanding business man and one of my personal inspirations knows this first hand. Living the divine life, in fact, wasn’t always his story. Well acquainted with financial struggles at a young age, his God given gift of sales and leadership began to make room for him at the age of fifteen. By his early twenties, Armand saying farewell to poverty, had already become a millionaire and many times over by his mid twenties.

Over a decade later, however, with many accomplishments, it was devastatingly apparent that, although he had amassed great wealth in one area; he had totally violated the wealth that was most important; his health. He, like so many, had almost completely forgotten how our bodies are best treated as the temples for God to live in. At that dreadful time of his life, he weighed in at over 425 pounds and was fatally diagnosed with gastric cancer & a malignant tumor in his right lung with less than six months to live!

It was by God’s grace and his loving wife, Dr. Esther Ramos, that this wounded champion entered the fight of his life. Though discouraged he was determined by faith to win and to live his life for a higher purpose other than just obtaining more material possessions and personal business accomplishments.
After experiencing his own miracle from God, Armand began living his life to create other miracles in the lives of other people. He found a mission worth living for in helping other people get their own health and wealth together in a more powerful position.

Within that process he became the highest paid income earner in one of the fastest growing marketing companies on the planet where he was blessed to create the compensation plan and bring in a number of powerful health and wellness products that were used in his own healing process. He went on to become the highest paid Hispanic within the networking marketing industry; ranked as high as #6 in the entire world rankings for everyone.

Little did he know however, that it was never God’s plan for him to settle at the top of that chart as the end of his journey. God made it uncomfortably clear to him that it was time to chart out another course not as the highest paid distributor or president of a company but into the brand new territory as the CEO of something else!
With Armand’s greatest tests have come his testimony. His mind is made up, his heart is set. His vision is clear. Since we are made in the image and likeness of God; it only made sense to him that more people would answer the call to start living lives that are truly divine. His named his company, “Vida Divina,” which is Spanish for “Divine Life” and his motto is “Lead with love.” What a perfect match!
The experience has been unbelievably life changing for him and countless others. Although he saw and believed God for BIG things, little did he know that his seed of faith to launch out into the deep would take off in such a record breaking fashion that it would shake up the entire industry in ways that have never quite happened this way before.
In less than two months there have been over 110,000 distributors that have lined up for the Vida Divina prelaunch. There are already 10 nations lined up and ready to do business. Furthermore and what is extremely rare is that from day one, Armand’s wise business acumen has allowed Vida Divina the unique experience of being not only the distributor of our life changing products but also the manufacturer!

Then too, whether it is Armand’s heart of gold toward people in general or the golden compensation plan that has literally topped the charts as the most lucrative compensation plan in the industry; people are dreaming again. They are ready to take another chance; to step out on faith and to believe God for something greater than “network marketing” as usual or the regular “9 – 5!”
One thing that is certain, it’s different at Vida Divina. We see great things happening for average people that are simply willing to plug into to the culture and ethic of what Vida Divina was created to do. We see thousands upon thousands of ordinary people stepping into some extraordinary life styles within the next 12 – 24 months.
The only question is “will you be one of them?” Are you ready for something new? Are you ready to become “the head and not the tail” and to take back what the “enemy had stolen from you?”
Whether it is your health, your wealth or both; we are not ashamed to say that’s what Vida Divina is all about; the Divine Life.
Congratulations Armand!
We salute you fearless one.

So many Questions

So many Questions II

Within in this article I’m going to ask a lot of questions. These are questions that seem to be on everyone’s mind. I’m going to give my opinion on some of the questions.
Why are our children dying so young? Wake of people, we are losing our children to some violent crimes. We need to stop this violence.
Why is the cost of living so high, but minimum wage is so low? You have to almost have two jobs just to make ends meet.
Why is the governor of Michigan still in office? I feel he should step down.

Why was a 13 year old boy adducted and killed over $75? Shaking my head, this is a terrible crime, was it really worth his life.

How is that gas prices can go up and down as they please? One month we at $2.00 then the next thing you know we’re up to $2.50. Can we just get one set price and let it be.

Do you think Hilary Clinton can beat Donald Trump for President? Even with all the negativity, I feel that she can beat him. He has no good issues and talks about nothing to help the US. Listen people we have to get out an vote.

Why is so much Black on Black crime? I thought black lives matter? So much killing of our youth is such a shame. Where is the love? Where is the unity?

Why are our babies being targeted for adult crimes? Babies young as 6 months have been killed because of an adult beef.

What is this world coming to? People please wrap your arms around your children. Give them that hard love.

debate

Debate: Can a single parent raise the opposite sex?

Enticing Resultz Magazine did a debate to see how many different opinions there are of being a single parent. Could a single man raise a daughter to be a woman? Could a single mother raise a son to be a man?

Enticing Resultz Magazine felt the need to talk about this subject because there are so many negative opinions when it comes to single parents. Society feels that single parents can not a raise a child probably because it takes two parents. This may be true but we have to give props to our single parents because they have it much harder because of the fact it’s only one. According the American Psychological Association, over the past 20 year single parents have become common from single mother, single fathers and grandparents raising children. Being a single parents brings stress on the parent as well as the child. The single parent may feel overwhelmed by the responsibility of juggling caring for the children, maintaining a job and keeping up with the bills and household chores. And typically, the family’s finances and resources are drastically reduced following the parents’ breakup.

The debate was done with different opinions of all races and ages. The results of the debate included 100% of the people agreed that being a single parent in this day an age is hard. And 80% percent agree that yes a man can raise a daughter to be a woman and yes a mother can raise a son to be a man. But when it comes to certain things like puberty then you need the help of a woman when it comes to girls and the help of male when it comes to boys.

Being a single parent in this economy seems to be difficult because they are so many obstacle and loops to jump through just to make sure that your child is safe. By the economy being down makes it even worst, because they are no jobs and you have to work two or more jobs just to make ends meet. This like stated before brings stress on the parent which in turns brings stress to the child. Children learn from what they see and hear, so that’s why we have good apples and bad ones. So children do not know how to handle the stress of life or do not understand why things are the way they are, when all the responsibility is all on one person. Being a parent period is hard, whether you have two parents or one. But there is great debate that kids are the way they are because of the single parent situation.

Don’t get me wrong you have single parents who children turns out to be good kids and then you have parents who kids just went down the wrong path. But that also goes both ways. The results of the debate indicate that being a parent period is a hard job and that it takes all to help raise a child.

Growing up as child you always wondered why your parents was so hard you and why they pushed education as being very important in order to survive. How they were wrong for not letting you do this and that. Why you had to clean your room and wash dishes after dinner. This was all to instill responsibility in you. Now that you look back after having your own kids and see that they weren’t hard on you all.

Single parents are look down upon because it is written that it takes two parents to raise a child. But in reality a single parents is probably better than having two parents. Because this instill in the child how strong their mother or father are. A single parent has to work twice as hard to make sure that they child get everything they need. Society can not predict how to raise a child because each child is individual with their own personalities.

When a man is raising a daughter he can instill in her all the morals of how a woman should be treated and when it comes to personal things that only female can handle he can call on his mother, aunts and sisters. In my opinion it would be harder for a man to raise a child as single parents because woman are made to stronger than the man when it comes to things like raising children. I give great props to a man that is raising a child on his own whether it is a daughter or a son. Just like it takes a strong woman the same goes for a man. But it is very rarely that you see a single man raising child.

When it comes to single mothers raising a son the same goes for her as it would for the man raising a son. She would have to rely on her father, brothers and uncles to help with things that she could not explain to him. Women are naturally built to take on things like this. If we go back in history the woman stayed home and raised the kids while the man worked to bring home the bacon. But in this day age times has changed and the woman is taking on the responsibility of taking care of the whole house. That’s why it is natural for a woman to raise a child on her own.

In conclusion, it really takes a village to raise a child because there are so many distractions, that wasn’t there when we were growing up. It also takes a strong minded child to survive the entire obstacle that they are going to face once there adults. We learn from our environment and it takes the whole family to help with raising our children. They are our futures and we have to band together to make sure things are right for them.

As a parent I learned that no matter how you raise your children they are going to turn out to be whatever they heart desire. We just have to pray that they follow the right path and not go down the wrong one. Don’t blame yourself if your child turns out to be the opposite of what you want them to be. You did your job and it’s up to them to take what they learn and make a future for themselves. My grandma always told me whatever you’re going to be, be the best at it not matter what it is.

Black Lives Do Not Matter

 

 

 

Black Lives Do Not Matter

 

When is enough really enough? Sometimes pain is necessary. Sometimes you have to break the bone then reset it to ensure proper healing. A reminder is at times needed to shake off contentment. More often than not kindness is usually regarded as weakness. Passiveness is used against the non-violent. These are things we already know. We know times are bad or even worse, they’re crazy.

1977

 

Lately there’s been more noise than usual about police brutality in our nation. More noise than heard in almost 50 years, but is the noise enough. How effective are the old tactics nowadays – if ever they were. Changes are made in paperwork being legislation and laws. These changes are the talk of the day, but what progress is being made concerning police brutality?

IMG_9616

 

Dogs, batons, water hoses, guns … These were used in 1963 against people not yet even twenty years of age. Over half a century later and recorded killings of blacks due to police hands are higher than ever. Fifty-three years later and the Voter’s Rights Act that those teens were marching for has been gutted and repealed. Bloody Sunday in Selma, where people were beaten by police and hospitalized in 1965 not even fifty years passed before what they were persecuted for is nearly abolished. What “progress” has really been made?

 

0009

 

Now , 2016 …. We face a situation that must be dealt with , it’s been ignored long enough. Last year a study by The Washington Post tallied almost 2 officer involved shootings per day. That’s more than twice the rate the government had recorded over the past decade. At the same time over the last two decades police fatalities, injuries, and assaults are dropping steadily. It’s becoming more safe for officers and more dangerous for citizens at the hands of officers.

An American citizen is eight times more likely to be killed by police than a terrorist, including Isis. Currently there’s a murder at the hands of police every eight hours.

When did this become ok? How is our justice system this corrupt, yet unmeasurably unopposed. The fact is we have been holding the truth in our hands for years. Blacks have been speaking on police issues over 60 years yet they were ignored, because it was happening to “them” and not “us”. The biggest evidence that black lives don’t matter is the fact that after televised abuse and dogs feeding on the skin of black teenagers we had to wait six decades to even be able and say “Black Lives Matter” then be heard. African-Americans are three times more likely to be killed than whites or any other minority. African-Americans are twice as likely to be killed by police while unarmed.

 

This is not new. This is not a phenomenon. This has been happening since 1704 when the first slave patrols were instituted to recapture runaway slaves. Lots of slave patrols actually became police departments in America. From their beginning police in the United States were established to control blacks and recapture runaway slaves. This explains the psychological effects the badge can have on someone, power drunkenness and loss of moral compass. Misconduct complaints are filed on average against 205,200 police officers a year. The court cases to defend these officers are an expense of taxpayers, 1.8 billion dollar annual cost.

The money aside for a second , there is a systemic issue that helps understand why we have the highest amount of civilian deaths at the hands of police officers and also the highest incarceration rate, 2.3 million with 1 million being black according to NAACP.

 

These numbers represent one of the few areas still left that America leads the world in. It’s unacceptable, but yet we accept it everyday. We accept the fact that it takes 1,000 citizens to be killed by police before one indictment is handed down. We now must indict the system. We the people must look at the rate of prosecution for police and demand more. This atmosphere of “kill and get away with it” has to finally be put to an end. The same thing that was on signs over 50 years ago remains on them today, these tactics are not working – never really have. Why ? They don’t really care about us. A recent Princeton study of 1,800 public policies over the last twenty years shows that the wants of the average American only have a minuscule insignificant effect of policies that are enacted. Government is owned by big business, so our demands fall on ears stuffed with hundred dollar bills. We the people have to indict the system that allows this perversion to rot away our trust in a government we pay taxes to. We are not truly represented in any of the 3 branches of government.

 

 

 

 

We the people indict the system for murder in the first degree.

We the people indict the system for miscarriage of justice.

We the people indict the system for perjury.

We the people indict the system for prejudice and discrimination.

We the people indict the system for cruel and unusual punishment.

 

1.2 million law enforcement officials occupy the United States of America.

In 2015, 1,202 people were killed by them. In 2014, 1,110 killed also. We have a case to be heard. Evidence to be presented;

 

Exhibit A: for the people: In a recent survey of police officers in America 43% stated “always following the rules is not compatible with getting the job done.” This speaks to how duties are conducted when the shift begins. A man heading out in the squad car with this outlook on his job is more prone to cutting corners and bending any rule.

 

Exhibit B: The same study found 588,000 officers feel for a criminal to be punished they must take the law into their own hands.

Vigilante mentality occupies nearly half of our entire police force. No thoughts on justice or fair trial first. A mind set like this is what leads a traffic stop to a crime scene.

 

Exhibit C: 52% agree it is not unusual for officers to turn a blind eye to improper conduct of officers, 300,000 have actually witnessed other officers profiling and didn’t report it.

Those vigilante officers are enabled by comrades whose silence is their muted form of participation. Accessories to the crimes committed, oath breakers themselves as they watch their brothers become corrupt in front of them.

 

Exhibit D: The fact the United States government has been found guilty in court for the assassination of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. on December 8, 1999.

The conspiracy was proven in court and unanimously found guilty by 12 jurors. One of the greatest examples of a Christian, of an American, and of a man that we have in modern times was systematically conspired against and taken away from us by our very own government. The evidence shows that our case holds and that an indictment is past due.

 

No laws enacted, no legislation passed, no changes made. Our tactics no longer have even the smallest effect on how politics plays out today. Presidential candidates can speak on it and entertainment can exploit it, but we need more then conversation now. Actions speak louder always – now they’re the only thing that speak at all. Federal investigations into Ferguson and Chicago show us enough proof that there are clear and present racial motivations behind over half of the police stops conducted. Blacks and minorities are intentionally targeted to secure funds and make quotas for officers. We the people of this great nation can not stand for this. This can not be tolerated or allowed to persist. La’Quan McDonald, a boy killed in Chicago by police after being shot 16 times. His family had to wait over a year for charges to be filed against the police because audio on the dash cams had been intentionally tampered with. The minor changes made to better protect the 99% aren’t given a chance to be effective.

 

We the people are dying.

We the people are not being heard.

We are not being seen.

 

IAM MEN

This is now at a point where it’s our fault. We have yet to update our tactics, we have yet to try new matters to garner attention. Misconduct continues to grow in more areas than just brutality. Sexual assault is the second highest form and growing. Whether it be the raping of 13 black women or forcing prostitues to have sex while all while on duty like in Oklahoma and Nashville respectively. These cases are becoming more frequent, yet and still no changes made. How many deaths must we literally see, last words heard, gasps for breath denied. At what point is it the fault of the people because of our own fear? When is it our responsibility more than the department’s? When is it on is to do more .. More than marches, sit-ins, die-ins, and signs. Are these just our way to act like we have a say so – to act like we care? These redundancies; are they from lack of leadership or courage? Have we lost our heart, has our spirit been quieted forever? Resigning ourselves to a life lived in the shadows, where we have to tell our children to be careful because of their color then not having an answer when they ask is why it is the way it is. Have we accepted this second rate way of life – the tiny 99%

 

There are only tyrants when people enjoy tyranny at some level of society. There is only justice when people no longer seek justice to be absolute. Sometimes the pain is necessary to remind people of their power. Sometimes the pain is required to awaken sleeping Giants. We the people have a case to indict those that are meant to serve the public. Public servants are there to ensure we are respected, protected, and informed. If there is failure in this then reform and change is needed immediately.

 

When the people that built a nation are the target of that nation what does that say about the morals and principles of said nation? When the people that contributed inventions, labor, blood, tears, and countless babies on a countries behalf are not respected and acknowledged for such sacrifices made then those people must ensure by their own means that those sacrifices are remembered and paid the appropriate appreciation. We the people have failed. Failed our ancestors, our children, and ourselves. We have failed to be all we can be. We, the children of God, have failed for the last time. An indictment is to be handed down – from the citizens of the United States of America to the government. We demand acknowledgment, change, and reform. Due process to a speed trial is demanded. It’s been long enough – from Fredrick Douglas , Harriet Tubman, Sojourner Truth, Marcus Garvey, Medgar Evers, Martin Luther King Jr, Malcolm X, John F. Kennedy, Huey P. Newton, Bobby Hutton, all the way to Sandra Bland. Enough has been enough. When will black lives finally matter? More importantly, why haven’t

The preoccupied

 

Why is life the way it is?
Why would the world want to be preoccupied instead of adventurous? Meaning enslaved in work.
So busy one can’t even recognize the obvious in front of their eyes. Unaware that they can’t find the explanation of life.
Life is such a beautiful creation.
So what if the formation changed everything one did day to day?
Would it scared them?
Or make them want to learn more? Dig so deep in finding the meaning, it changed every one in existence. Preoccupied.
Taking one out of there content habitat.
Preoccupied.
Taking the lies they’ve been told and turning them into truth.
Would they ask themselves  questions and demand all the answers.
Help found the problem and solve the solutions.
Preoccupied.
Or would it terrify them to the extreme then make one commit suicide.
Knowing the knowledge one can’t unknow.
Or maybe everyone has too much understanding of this animation.
Is it that horrifying?
One must be subjugated in fantasies to keep them from the veracity. Preoccupied.
One rather just die obliviously.
Insensible is for the ignorant.
Put it in a book and they won’t read it. Preoccupied.
Put it in a book and they’ll stay unmindful.
Got you right where I want you.
Blind and distracted.
Life is this way now.
So get back to work and stay preoccupied.

So many Questions

So many Questions

 

Within in this article I’m going to ask a lot of questions. These are questions that seem to be on everyone’s mind. I’m going to give my opinion on some of the questions.

Why is it okay for motorcyclist to not wear helmets? When it’s more dangerous if they are in an accident they could have severe injuries to their heads. But we as motorist have to wear a seatbelt or get a ticket. When cars are more safe that a motorcycle when it comes to accidents. Who ever passed this law needs to rethink it. I feel that it should be our choice if we want to wear a seatbelt or not.  

Why do we have to pay for car insurance? I feel it should also be a choice whether we want insurance on our cars or not.  What is the purpose? If I never have an accident then the insurance companies are getting rich.

Why is mandatory that we now have to have health care or we will be fined? Health care should be a choice because not everyone can afford it. The affordable care act is really not affordable if you have a big family. Now if the government wants to give everyone free healthcare then it would okay.

Why is it that medical marijuana is legal in many cities and states but the government can still come in raid the facility?  Why have the people vote if it doesn’t mean anything.

Why do men get paid more that a women doing the same job? When is this double standard going to stop? A woman is just as good as a man or better. I’m just saying.

Why are fast food restaurants only paying minimum wages in communities where the cost of living is really high? I don’t see them getting $15hr but a least $10hr so they can be able to pay rent and utilities.

Why is everything always a race issue? When it comes to law, a person of color will get all day for a crime. But a person of non-color (white) gets a slap on the risk. An example would be that white kid that killed three people while drunk driving. He gets probation because a psychological explanation call spoil syndrome. WTF … really. Now let that been a black child he would have got all day.

Why is college tuition so high? I thought education is supposed to be free.

Now the ultimate question is:  Why are the American people taking Donald Trump serious?How is he in the top running for president for the Republican Party? He speaks on no issues but building a wall to keep the Arabic people of the United States. If that’s not prejudice then what is? I’m going to leave this question open to see how the American people feel about this

2016-Metrical Composition

IN-TRO-DUC-TION

The saddest thing is to be a minute to someone, when you’ve made them your eternity. ERMAG understand there is a arguing for metrical compositions (Poetry) can be dangerous, especially beautiful poetry, because it gives the illusion of having had the experience without actually going through it.

The distinguished art of metrical composition is the act of expression put through the vernacular jungle. The pen becomes the machete that slices its way through emotion and thought; clearing a path to spiritual enlightenment. Expanding the method of understand and feeling- bring about a new sight. The third eye is used to properly read and digest the soul spelled out on page. Deeper than intellect and higher that emotion – this is the process of divinity made physical.

Now let’s break it down to the essence. One first finds the objective laying in the mind – what is wishes to be expressed to the world. The heart begins to configure the imagery so the portrait will remain balanced and precise. Only then does the spirit take over – letting all the water colors of your energy focus on taking it all to a hidden place. A dissolute wilderness that has only been seen by the eyes of the master. It’s there that the pen is found and the creator begins to work in full harmony with self and surroundings. These moments are those of pure beauty emitted through burst like a star being born, Scriptures scribbled in solitude grow legs and walk into the ears of strangers Hands form to grasp the hearts and minds It just takes time.

The stage is set, the lights are luminous, and the mic is on.

A Million Ain’t Enough

A Million Ain’t Enough

The 20th anniversary of The Million Man March was just a few weeks ago. I was in attendance at the event, blessed to be in the first row of the audience. Watching it personally grow from ten strangers to over a million kin. What seemed to be such a wondrous and amazing event in person was dim lit in the halls of social and mainstream media. Mainstream media lacking coverage, even Black Entertainment Television wouldn’t cover the March.

I was forced to ask myself

“In 2015, was a million enough?”b3

What does it take for something to be caught and held in the eyes of the media, tweeps, and participators?

HASHTAGS RULE THE WORLD
#Justiceorelse , check got the hashtag. The hashtag was trending world wide for a week straight, but the event itself didn’t get as much coverage as the hashtag did. A weird and complex dichotomy that social media has perfected ..

– Being interested in only a certain specific part of something in order to appear supportive.

That is as “social” as social media gets lately.

Then there’s location, location, location .. Well the National Mall is the best location you can have. The best place to stage something as big as The Million Man March 20th anniversary. You would think like in ‘95 that it alone would be good enough to stir the masses, civilian and news corporation a like.

The fact that African-American, Hispanic-American, and Native American leaders all who spoke that day should bring news cameras from around the country, if not the world. No news cameras, lackluster coverage, zero correspondent presence the entire weekend.
The program that day reached millions of people in 400 cities around the world, but our own country wouldn’t showcase such an event in our national capitol.

A million peaceful people standing together in the most racially tense era since the 60s, but even that isn’t worthy of headlines. What does it take to make people care or pay attention? Is a Nation of Islam sex tape necessary, or a fight between Farrakhan and Al Sharpton online with “WorldStar!” being screamed in the background a few dozen times? Black women not scantly clad or twerking to Miley Cyrus & Juicy J. Black men dressed unlike the imagery of “thugs” we’re shown in the news everyday and even worse in suits & ties.
In a atmosphere were walls and banning entire populations is a reasonable or rational step in our country, can we even expect to be heard? When rhetoric of hatred and arguing provides you with 250 minutes of coverage on the top three news networks, peace just doesn’t sell.
With a year riddled in protest, uprisings, political contest, division, and tribalism. A million people standing together in any aspect is an accomplish even more vital than 20 years ago. Apartheid has come to America and no one is interested in derailing the process – just filming the whole thing.

What do you have to do so that you’re taken seriously?

Is there anything left? Or has the ADD/ADHD generation bought into the myth that we can’t concentrate on one thing for too long without losing our minds… has the revolution been lost? In the age of sharing information and conversation the word can spread about something, but the hope that word has of actually being held on to or given the chance to be appreciated before the next news story pushes it to the shoulder of the Internet is near zilch. Being 23 years old, I find myself brushing off matters of importance awaiting the next “thing” , but exactly how large does a “thing” have to be to win someone’s undivided attention? We can retweet and share violence, sex, & drugs all day, which I have a tendency to do a lot, myself. We can share memes, quotes, and inspirational videos all day, which again I do a lot myself. Even take time to tune in for an entire hour of Empire, which I have recorded on my DVR right now. We won’t take time though to speak to each other about news, thoughts, society unless it’s an argumentative stance.

“Peace has no place in the marketplace.”b7 Protest and revolts are the headliners. Hatred and anger garner attention, not only the predominant attention, but all of it is dedicated only to the drama and spectacle of life in America. This is what is seen as the mentality of the country. This is the embodiment of why there are protest and why there are new organizations in the country. This is why protestors feel they have to interrupt presidential candidates to be heard. This is why economic protest are being so heavily preached, because the power of words is being ignored unless those words used are meant to be harmful. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is used as a pillar and light of guidance for our country because he used words instead of violence and his ideas were to include those people that we usually forget. Words are respected today, words aren’t acknowledged as life changing as they once were. Dr. King spoke on “redistribution of the pain” in regards to economic protest, because he knew that other tactics would be needed. He saw them what is so evident now – People choose more times than not to disregard than hear out.b2That’s why we didn’t see the gangs that made peace to came together and vow to change their neighborhoods. That’s why news wouldn’t show “Violence Interrupters” who were part of the “street gangs” in New York. BET didn’t show the faces that were displayed on the Jumbotrons of the nameless that have died by police hands or in police custody or in racially stemmed incidents around the country. There were no mainstream media cameras to speak to Rodney Mitchell’s mother. There were no angry words, or calls for killing police, or burning down a CVS … so there was no airtime for such an event.
It seems for America at large if it doesn’t come from mainstream media or outlets they own; Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat.. then we don’t have the time for it.
And for American Media in 2015, a million just ain’t enough.

All of this doesn’t mean to stop. Never stop thinking, trying, organizing, pushing, fighting, rising, and loving. After 500 years of being overlooked and dismissed the people at the March, those that watched and supported, and those that related to the sentiments expressed that day are used to being underground. We are use to raising up from the bottom and toppling the powers that reign high. Protests are growing more wide spread and more detailed in execution. The ground is opening up and Frankenstein is beginning to awake.

Yes, of course, I’m talking about “War Room.” What other movie could I possibly be talking about on this level?

  • Provident FilmsWar Room’ is a 2015 American Christiandrama filmdirected by  Alex Kendrickand cowritten and produced by his brother Stephen Kendrick.This film reaffirms the core teaching known by just a handful that prayer needs to be staged and prepared for much like combat does in a military ‘War Room‘ environment where life and death can hang in the balance.Of course, nobody saw me shed a tear [at least not those who weren’t in my row.]”Kendrick brothers, you are wrong for that!Here’s the scene: Its time for you to fight Elizabeth. Its time for you to fight THE REAL ENEMY You gotta love it! At least I did but what is all of this “War Room” stuff about anyway? Man, you’re asking all of the great questions! My friend, it is about prayer, open communication between you and the one who made you. No silly, not your parents; God, your creator and sustainer! The War Room is about opening up and keeping clear and free lines of communication between you and Jesus Christ our Lord as your savior and redeemer. It is about having the barracks of your heart and soul in constant connection with headquarters.   from “WAR ROOM” …. My friend, could it be my that the reason that so many of our lives might look like ‘war torn’ battle grounds demolished by enemy tactics is because so very few of us regularly spend time in the ‘War Room?”“What a friend we have in Jesus, all our sins and griefs to bear! O what peace we often forfeit, O what needless pain we bear, all because we do not carry everything to God in prayer.” My friend, could it be that prayer, to be brutally honest is not something that most of us really seem to make much time for or tend to practice much in today’s times [unless of course, there is a declared state of national or personal emergency?]Could we be honest about most of our churches?In fact, if you ran a survey throughout most churches today you would discover that the PRAYER SERVICE is the least participated service of the entire church!This fact, just goes to show us how desperately in trouble we are and how much we have fallen.On one occasion, his disciples had seen his own lifestyle, passion and power of his prayers and they asked him to teach them how to pray. Look at Jesus’ personal instruction to them that still serves as a powerful model today:”And when you pray, you shall not be like the hypocrites. For they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward.8“Therefore do not be like them. For your Father knows the things you have need of before you ask Him. 9In this manner, therefore, pray:       Hallowed be Your name.       Your will be done       11Give us this day our daily bread.         12And forgive us our debts,         As we forgive our debtors.       For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.16 “Moreover, when you fast, do not be like the hypocrites, with a sad countenance. For they disfigure their faces that they may appear to men to be fasting. Assuredly, I say to you, they have their reward. 17But you, when you fast, anoint your head and wash your face, 18so that you do not appear to men to be fasting, but to your Father who is in the secret place; and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly.Text “prayerpower” 40691 Prayer then, is nothing something to just read about or talk about. It’s something to practice on a regular basis.Yes, we need to invite God into our lives through prayer and get his divine intervention employed in our war like scenarios. However, he won’’ come in unless we invite him.“God I cant make it without YOU! I NEED YOU to show up and show out in my life. God, I’m tired and exhausted from doing my thing…..please forgive me, wash me, clean me up, demonstrate your power in my life…. And have your way!”If you would like to join the “Joshua Generation” in our online prayer meetings held on the first three days of every month [1st, 2nd and 3rd] please do the following and we’ll get you the information you need.Text “WarRoom” 40691 There are no numbers missing.”

  • Brother s and sisters, you owe it to yourself to make prayer a very essential part of your lifestyle on both a personal and public level. “War Room” has inspired me to take my own prayer ministry a lot more seriously. I sure hope you go out of your way to watch it and share it with others who may be inspired in this areas as I have been on a personal level.
  • Prayer then, is our invite to God. Prayer is our humble request. It is our saying to him,
  • The movie “War Room” teaches us that whether you are experiencing battle ground fatigue in your marriage, relationships, finances, health or just life in general; the solution is the same; we need to PRAY!

For they think that they will be heard for their many words.
  • MATTHEW 6:5-18
  • Consider this, our Lord Jesus himself, was a man of very passionate prayer wasn’t he? Now, if Jesus prayed as much as he did as ‘the only begotten Son of God,’ then why wouldn’t we?
  • It’s critical that you get this. How could it be that perhaps the most ESSENTIAL ministry in the church is also the most NEGLECTED ministry at the same time?
  • § We’ve ADDED a few PROGRAMS § But we’ve DELETED so much PRAYER!
  • Tragically, this lack of prayer is not just limited to a personal level. We even find a lack of prayer in most congregations. Yes, sadly the very places that should be “houses of prayer” very seldom are.

  • Personally speaking, here’s what I’ve found to be true about prayer. Prayer is our surest pathway to higher ground. It is our 24-7 hotline to get in touch with headquarters, particularly the commander in chief of all of our human affairs. In my opinion, prayer makes us stand up a little bit taller seeing that we will never be any taller than when we are on our knees in prayer.
  • Its time for you to TAKE OFF THE GLOVES and DO IT.”
  • Its time for you to fight for your marriage
  • “You need to do your fighting in prayer. And you need to kick the real enemy out of your home …. with the word of God!
  • What was my favorite part of the “War Room?” Great question. It’s really hard to say because there were so many great parts but there is this one part when the seasoned, wise prayer warrior and widow, Miss Clara Williams [played by Karen Abercrombie] speaks heart and soul staring into the eyes of Elizabeth Jordan, a discouraged wife, mother and professional realtor who has all but lost faith [played by Priscilla Shirer] and it sort of kind of gave me that feeling that you might have gotten when you first saw “Rocky” running up the endless set of steps right before his big fight!
  • Okay I’ll tell you. There were so many powerful parts in the movie. In fact, the movie as a whole demonstrated the Kendrick’s ‘spiritual giftedness’ in pulling out every emotion there is in a man out of him in public and in the most embarrassing way possible.”
  • This dynamic, classic is the 5th film produced by the Kendrick brothers but their very first project produced through their own Kendrick Brothers Productions.

“Discipline or Disqualification? Discipline is Better!”

I Corinthians 9:24-27 [NKJV] “ Do you not know that those who run in a race all run, but one receives the prize? Run in such a way that you may obtain it. 25And everyone who competes for the prize is temperate in all things. Now they do it to obtain a perishable crown, but we for an imperishable crown.

Therefore I run thus: not with uncertainty. Thus I fight: not as one who beats the air.   But I discipline my body and bring it into subjection, lest, when I have preached to others, I myself should become disqualified.”

 

The thrill of the game, the adrenalin rush, the pulse pounding impact of the watching the last few moments of a close game between rival teams. The spike in blood pressure; the blood curdling and agonizing scream you hear when our team loses …you would think that folk were playing the game themselves.

 

Yes, SPORTS … if not yourself, the average guy you know loves sports. Get this … with no compensation of any kind and with no physical value being obtained from it whatsoever, most of your friends are hooked on sports like powerful drugs! In fact, depending on the season, may I suggest that some of your friends may even live for the game!

 

Think of all of the time and money spent on one’s favorite sport and what they will do just to support or connect with their favorite athlete or team. For most of us our connection to sports starts pretty early in life. Whether “pee wee” league or intramural level, many of us tend to take our sports pretty serious.

 

Gratefully, if you watch them closely, there are so many powerful, life lessons that can be learned from the athlete and regardless of sport, one thing the athlete teaches us is how to utilize discipline in our lives.

 

See it is the athlete’s daily dose of disciple that keeps him from becoming disqualified. So, with this thought in mind, can we change sports for just a moment?

 

The sport for now is life and if you don’t mind I need to ask you a few serious questions to see what kind of athlete you really are:

 

How are you playing your game? Are you even in the game or are you still on the bench? [Out of fellowship]

Are you studied up on your winning plays? [Bible study]

Have you been coming to practice and grinding it out like you are supposed to or have you been taking short cuts? [Sin]

Are you a team player or has it been all about YOU? [Pride]

How’s your diet? Are you eating the right things; body , soul and spirit?[Meditation]

What kind of godliness in your life are you exercising? Have you set proper boundaries to maintain favor with God and man? Are you doing what it takes to earn the respect of your family, friends and those who depend on you? [Real fans]

Do you keep yourself in check with proven, winning strategies or do you let anything go in your life? How do you handle those temptations that run across your mind from time to time? How do you handle your own shadows? Your own past? Your own secrets? Your own skeletons? Your own insecurities? [Humility & Accountability]

 

 

See, there’s a lot of stuff that can get you disqualified from the game …. How will you handle those?

 

Before I go, allow me to offer you this thought; no matter how uncomfortable it may seem, stay with the discipline! Know this; All great athletes do and it will be no different with you. In fact, being disciplined will even be more important for you in life than it will be for your favorite athlete in the game! Make no mistake about it, you will always have the MOST to win or lose and YOU will always be the real star.

 

So, I say to you, let your light shine bright as it ought to and as long as it has been ordained to by living with discipline that at times may seem painful.

 

The reality, however is that you can choose discipline or disqualification BUT discipline is BETTER!

 

Stay in the game CHAMP.
