BREAKING: Blake of COGIC Threatens the State of Missouri

Recently, self appointed ‘apostle’ Charles Blake of the Church of God in Christ drafted a letter to send a message to bully the state of Missouri to crucify Darren Wilson in the Michael Brown shooting.

This letter is rampant with assumptions and outright lies. Blake is stirring people to turn on government and police to further his racist agenda. Make no mistake: Blake has an agenda to break the State of Missouri using the COGIC’s multiple millions and threats as his henchmen.

Apparently Mr. Blake doesn’t believe people should be able to defend themselves…unless they are a person of color. Since the 2008, Mr. Blake has taken the COGIC to the altar of abortion for Mr. Obama and is soon to take it to the LGBT. But where they came from was FAR from being bullies, murderers, and racists: This atrocity was an offshoot of the Great Azusa Street Revival.

I cannot imagine how God must be grieved by this. Mr. Blake needs to turn in his collar and join the ranks of other race baiters like Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton.

This letter is incredibly offensive. No real man of God would assume his own superiority to do this…and in writing. Mr. Blake, you need to revisit the Altar.

The text of the letter is below; click here to see the copy of it.

Dear Governor Nixon:

The tragic shooting of Michael Brown is extremely troubling to us. As an organization that has invested over $ 140 million dollars in the St. Louis regional economy over the past four years, with the likelihood of investing an additional $150 million dollars over the next four years, we feel especially obligated to urge that steps be taken to ensure that there will be justice in the Michael Brown shooting and that necessary systemic changes will be made that reduce the likelihood of situations like those listed below happening again:

  • The alleged circumstances surrounding his shooting;
  • The fact that the body of a teenager was left lying in the street for over four hours;
  • The militaristic response by law enforcement to individuals exercising their first amendment right to peaceful protest;
  • The fact that law enforcement officers removed their name badges during protests so as to remain anonymous;
  • What clearly looked like an effort by the Ferguson Police Chief to poison public opinion by releasing edited video tape about a totally unrelated event;
  • The unprecedented time it took to make public the name of the involved officer;
  • The fact that a police report has still not been made public as required by law;
  • The fact that law enforcement was seen wearing bracelets that say ‘I am Darren Wilson’ while positing that the public wait for the completion of the process before drawing conclusions;
  • The seemingly inordinate amount of time that it has taken to determine if Officer Wilson should be prosecuted; and,
  • The additional shootings in St. Louis of which at least one appears to have resulted from inappropriate use of deadly force.

An understanding of your plans to ensure justice is achieved and to make needed systemic changes will be helpful in our deliberations. We await your expeditious reply.

Sincerely,

The Christian Public Witness

My Life as a Christian

My husband and I were having a conversation about being a public witness. What I mean by ‘public’ is sidewalk ministry at the abortion facility or street ministry at strip clubs, bars, for example. Public means what and where is legal. Public means public, anyone can be there…even the opposition. TRUSTJESUS

In public ministry people love to battle, to justify sin, to embed their superiority. But the truth is they know they’re living a lie out loud, they know way deep down that this lie they live is getting harder and harder to keep up with.

When I remember who I used to be before Christ, I had to keep my justifications in absolute order so that I wouldn’t seem WRONG or in error of a badly lived life…after all, who’s life is it anyway? I thought it was mine alone.

GETTING TO THE POINT: There was not one time…

Happy Reformation Day….or, The Just Shall Live by FAITH.

get your preach on

Today is ‘Reformation Day’, NOT HALLOWEEN; the day when Martin Luther saw through scripture that the ‘just shall live by Faith’, NOT an evolution of faith via religion, otherwise God lied to Abraham: “And he believed in the Lord, and He accounted it to him for righteousness”, Genesis 15:6.

“For in it the righteousness of God is revealed from faith to faith; as it is written, “The just shall live by faith.” Romans 1:17

[Which interpreted correctly from the original text should read ‘The just shall live by HIS faith’]

There is always a counterfeit for everything holy.

The 95 Theses, his revelation of the truth of the doctrine of God, were written by Martin Luther in October 31, 1517. Ignoring the fact that Luther unlocked what was purposely omitted shows where the true heretic lies:

JESUS SAID: “Do you suppose that I came to give peace on earth? I tell you, not at all, but rather division.” Luke 12:51

AND: “Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword.” Matthew 10:34

‘They just shall live by faith’ is the basis for Evangelical Christianity [the Doctrine of the Bible] because it points to what Christ did at the Cross instead of trusting in organized religion and its man-appointed leaders. I know this does not bode well with organized religion but the Word of God supersedes anything that man says or does.

Martin Luther was given revelation by God to undo what ‘man’ had done for centuries to His Word, His opinion, His ultimate goal. The Reformation was now the line in the sand to mark those that cause the actual division – those that teach religion to salvation.

This is why there is such a thing as ‘Nondenominational Christian’. While organized religion thinks we run with scissors, I assure you that if one reads and understands the Canon of Scripture in the intent it was written [from the original texts of Hebrew & Greek] and understands that it is THE inspired Word of God without the opinion of man, you would see that Nondenoms are actually ON the Roman Road by way of His leading. The Bible taught order, not liturgy.

While Martin Luther was not a perfect man nor lived a perfect life, he did do this one thing: caused division from the ‘Church’ and showed that Christians needed to put their Faith in Jesus Christ alone and not organized religion or man. We needed a Saviour, not a figurehead, general superintendent, presiding bishop, general overseer, general conference, self-appointed prophet & apostles or even the Pope: The just shall live by Faith. [Habakkuk 2:4, Romans 1:7, Galatians 3:11, Hebrews 10:38]

We forget that organized religion killed Jesus on that day, and most certainly do not read the entire Bible to see what Christ himself said and did. If organized religion says they will decipher scripture for you, run FAST. Asking an opinion is one thing, but someone dictating from opinion of an organization rather than straight from the Word of God is frightening. However, I do like sharing ideas about Scripture; it makes for great conversation BUT getting away from the Finished Work of Christ can change your Eternal destination. Always back up what you say with Scripture because if you don’t, then the point is moot.

“Most assuredly, I say to you, he who hears My word and believes in Him who sent Me has everlasting life, and shall not come into judgment, but has passed from death into life.” [John 5:24]

SIDEWALK CHRONICLES: I’m not here to SELL you LIFE.

You read that right, I am not on the sidewalk to SELL choosing life for your unborn child. And I used to be a pretty good salesperson. But I’m not here to sell you anything; I’m here to give you something.

KEEPLIFELEGALWhen you arrived at the abortion facility today with four other members of your family, you were already sold a product that will change your life and murder your unborn baby: abortion. This ‘product’ is sold to you as an easy way out of your problem. Even your own friends and family has sold you this product because it makes their lives easier. From the evidence I see, I’d say that your friends and family are pretty good salespeople to talk you out of having YOUR baby FOR them…and you fell for it.

YOU MEAN THEY SELL ABORTION? Well, yes. It ain’t free.

Even after your own friends and family have sold you this…LIE, here comes the real salespeople – the abortion workers. They are able to sell you the proabortion lie that murdering your innocent unborn child will strengthen you as a woman and help you achieve all of your hopes and dreams. They sell you something that they cannot guarantee because it is impossible and they know it. In fact, if I were you, I’d ask them for that guarantee IN WRITING. After all, by now they have led you to believe that they are your new best friend and care about you! Let them prove it.KEEPLIFELEGAL

And then, after all of this that you’ve had to endure, take a moment of your time…just one little moment.

My dear pre-abortive mom: I’m not here to sell life, I’m here to tell you about a better way, to give you something for FREE that will CHANGE your life, forever. 

Today you’re here at the abortion facility with four other family members who sold you abortion. This was so messed up from the beginning, the woman who brought you had this huge Bible in her arms to validate herself and to literally disarm us. But the truth is that she led you to believe that abortion is the answer WITH the Bible. That is unconscionable. She didn’t like it when I confronted her with the truth. You deserve better, you should have been told the truth from the beginning. But here you are, you’re caught up in a life out of control and can’t see over the dashboard of the getaway car. You feel  hopeless and worthless. But the people you are supposed to trust brought you here to kill your baby.

This day can change your life for the BETTER rather than listening to people who believe choosing to kill an innocent person is just fine with God. The woman with the Bible chose to be as God; she chose to ignore pages and pages of the Bible she tightly clutched today. But I have to wonder, where did she put the pages she so cavalierly torn out to suit her agenda?

She told me I was wrong, that God lets us make these decisions – abortion decisions – during the worst of times, the worst of circumstances. NOTHING is worse than abortion death, being torn apart and scraped out of your own mother’s womb. NOT ONE circumstance warrants DEATH. And God does NOT approve of this regardless of the circumstances.

No, I’m not selling life. I’m giving you the GOSPEL. The Gospel SAVES, the Gospel HEALS, the Gospel RESTORES. Choosing Jesus instead of abortion not only saves your baby from abortion death, He saves YOUR life!

“For whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved.” [Rom 10:13]

Did you know that when you choose Jesus that God CHOOSES to remember your sins NO MORE? That’s right, God wants you to have life, not give the life of your child. God gave  us His only Son who died for us…He is our sacrifice for sins, not your unborn baby.

NO CHARGE. Even though Christ gave us His life, He did it to save ours. While your family and friends sell you abortion, Jesus gives us something they cannot: The FREE GIFT of Salvation – LIFE.

For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.  For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved,” [John 3:16-17].

OFFICIAL 2014 Voter Guide: A Ballot Measure for LIFE

Here we are, Life and Liberty hangs in the balance in the upcoming election AGAIN. We look at all of the candidates, the issues…and once again voters have to choose from the lesser of two evils. As a voter and a Christian, I realize that no candidate is perfect. But…seriously?

TIMING: A Christian’s ability to discern should be getting better rather than worse, considering the times we are in. The Bible never said the world would get better – these last days grow dim and we have to see through spiritual eyes,  not television and the internet. How much more evidence do we need to see that ‘tolerance’ will win elections, not the truth? Democrats win because wishy-washy Christians let them; Democrats win because of single issue voting. Those who claim ‘tolerance’ show how intolerant they are of decent Christians who live by the Book, not ‘tolerance’.

KEEPLIFELEGALSingle Issue Voting Denies LIFE? YES! One cannot measure the amount of Christians who vote Democrat because of single issues such as the Gay Agenda, legalization of pot, race baiting other ‘tolerance’ issues. Since Democrats demonize God, Jesus and Christianity to be intolerant, we have Godless agendas working to oust God and our basic freedoms outlined in the Constitution.

Single issue voting brings out the ‘true cost of ownership’ in elections. After all, we have to live with the outcome, right? Think of it this way, Colorado legalized pot and now they have real issues to deal with [because of the new law] such as a rise in homelessness, influx of out of state homeless attracted to legal drug use and crime. In Texas, the Mayor of Houston has interjected her personal Gay Agenda to upend our most basic rights of the Constitution including Freedom of Speech and Freedom of Religion. And if you think Houston isn’t a ‘test market’, think again. Annise Parker is actively demonizing Christians by trying to force Pastors to hand over sermons, notes, emails, texts, voice mails, etc. Single issue voting brought her and her Gay Agenda in, pot in Colorado brought in a myriad of other agendas. These two states are trying to get the Liberal Agenda OUT while they get millions of dollars of support from OUT OF STATE to keep their agendas in office and on the books.

Single issue voting takes prolifers to the task when they are confronted with keeping their gay cousin happy or the rights of the unborn. Even in my own family we were faced with being tolerant of their anti-God decision to live as another gender or ousted of a family who now denies God and unborn life for them. Personally, I did not find this to be a hard decision; the unborn has no voice while the Gay Agenda prances in gay pride parades in tutus and feather boas. My family chose the gay cousin over God and the unborn, just like most Christian families do. Tired of being strong-armed by their agenda? Then stop voting the agenda in. Simple stuff, really.

LET THE ABORTED SPEAK. What would an unborn child say to all of this? I recently commented on a Letter to the Editor regarding a person’s aunt who died from a botched abortion before 1973. And since all agendas follows the same trends, the writer said he/she [wasn’t specified] would fight for legal abortion rather than stopping an act that kills the unborn child and could kill the mother:

“If this woman had an abortion, then she thought herself higher and more important than the child she was carrying, she put herself into the position she was in. Abortionists all over the country kill the precious, innocent unborn every day in sub-standard back alley conditions that rival Kermit Gosnell’s killing field in Philadelphia. Rising up to speak for the abortion minded rather than an innocent unborn child is abhorrent, to say the absolute least. Let the aborted speak, not the liberal caretakers of those who are trying to ease their blood guilt.”

I cannot imagine any unborn child would sacrifice their own life for any reason IF THEY HAD THE CHOICE. Would you? Would YOU sacrifice your life to further abortion ‘rights’? Would YOU be the first person in line to offer up your last breath for an agenda to kill off the so-called unwanted? To that, I’d say: LET THE ABORTED SPEAK and hear what they have to say about dismemberment and disarticulation from abortion death. I assure you, the aborted speak VOLUMES.

BACK TO THE ELECTION: I can’t answer why we have rabid liberals in office, except that we have to trust the system because we are commanded to: “Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God,” [Rom 13:1]. Even in the times that the Apostle Paul wrote this, bad people were actively persecuting Christians, Paul included. All of the Apostles died from persecution except John. So, how can we learn from what the Holy Spirit inspired Paul to jot down about a government who seeks out Christians to murder?

To understand this better, you have to remember that Paul himself was a persecutor and murderer of Christians: “Now Saul [Paul] was consenting to his death. At that time a great persecution arose against the church which was at Jerusalem; and they were all scattered throughout the regions of Judea and Samaria, except the apostles. And devout men carried Stephen [persecuted] to his burial, and made great lamentation over him. As for Saul [Paul], he made havoc of the church, entering every house, and dragging off men and women, committing them to prison. Therefore those who were scattered went everywhere preaching the word,” [Acts 8:1-4].

It is interesting to note that Paul wrote about government after his Damascus Road experience; Paul was THE persecutor FOR the government before he converted to Christianity…and that government was still there after his conversion. Paul knew that as Christians we have to battle demons that the government cannot see; we have to live among people who hate us and wish us dead: “For rulers are not a terror to good works, but to evil. Do you want to be unafraid of the authority? Do what is good, and you will have praise from the same,” [Rom 12:3].

Can we ‘trust’ government? Instead, TRUST GOD. Vote the Bible, vote for LIFE.

Christians should vote for Christian values, of course. But Christians forget that we aren’t supposed to live as the persecutors do. It is our responsibility to give them the answer: Jesus Christ. The Apostle Paul knew this and wrote many letters throughout his ministry concerning this. And just like Paul, we were once murderous sinners NOW saved by Grace who live within a government that seeks to persecute us. Preach the Word, share the love of Jesus, be the hand extended even at the cost of prison or death. Elections come and go, but God is FOREVER:

But I want you to know, brethren, that the things which happened to me have actually turned out for the furtherance of the gospel, so that it has become evident to the whole palace guard, and to all the rest, that my chains are in Christ; and most of the brethren in the Lord, having become confident by my chains, are much more bold to speak the word without fear. Some indeed preach Christ even from envy and strife, and some also from goodwill: The former preach Christ from selfish ambition, not sincerely, supposing to add affliction to my chains; but the latter out of love, knowing that I am appointed for the defense of the gospel. What then? Only that in every way, whether in pretense or in truth, Christ is preached; and in this I rejoice, yes, and will rejoice.” [Phil 1:12-18]
