As a prisoner for the Lord, then, I urge you to live a life worthy of the calling you have received. Ephesians 4:0

_

In past reflections, we have considered the fact that if you have a calling, then you also have a caller, or, better yet, a divine Caller. Understand, that the Creator of the universe, the King of kings and Lord of lords has called you to belong to him and to join him in his creative, restorative work in the world.  It is exactly with this thought that anyone who has aspirations to be in service to God must proceed with understanding the desire for Godly truth.

_

Does Your Desire of his Truth Penetrate Your Mind and Heart  

Have you allowed the wonder of this truth to penetrate your mind and heart? Do you feel honored by the fact that God wants you and has called you?

_

We all must understand that God’s purpose for Christians is that we might bring honor to His holy name as we enjoy our relationship with Him for all eternity. Since the nature of fallen humanity is such that our primary motivation is to honor ourselves and not God, a work of God’s grace is required to change motives, beliefs, and actions.

So Honoring God means humbling ourselves and taking to heart God’s person and purposes. The question that we all must ask is how much God’s will weighs heavily upon our thoughts and lives. Our teaching about God and His purposes and our treatment of the people to whom He sends us will either honor or dishonor God.

God Is 1

_

Honoring the God Who Is!

In order to please God, one “must believe that He is” (Heb. 11:6). The existence of the eternal God is asserted throughout the Bible, beginning with Genesis 1:1. Those who refuse to honor God even in the face of the clear evidence for His existence abide under the wrath of God (Rom. 1:18,19).

_

God’s attributes can be divided into those that uniquely belong to God and cannot be “communicated” to His creatures and those that can be found in some form in humans. These categories are communicable and incommunicable attributes. To fully honor God, we must be careful to know, acknowledge, and teach the attributes of God that are revealed in Scripture.

_

Has God Shown Me My Gifts? (Affirmation)

After sensing a desire for pastoral ministry, we need to ask a more objective question about our gifting. Have I seen evidence, however small, of fruitfulness in serving others through biblical teaching and counsel? And, even more important than my own self-assessment, do others confirm my giftings for pastoral ministry?

_

According to Bishop Don Adams of Building God’s Kingdom International Network. “Remember Election is important many people have a calling on their lives but it has to start with truth. An old saying that many people use to this day is “They weren’t sent they just went.” In my opinion-one way that a person will know that you are called is if they from “run from it.” ” Those that are not called “run to it.” Meaning they are too eager to hold a position. 
“We don’t get excited over titles nor do we get excited over positions.”  A calling on your life is like when you take you first steps as a baby-one step at a time.
Regardless of the outcome when you are eager to learn-you are more acceptive to learn how to walk, then your status of learning is beyond what the next person would expect, but even then-we must realize that with any calling one must know that everyone is not called to lead.”    

_
Perhaps you have had an experience like this in your life. But, whether you’ve been literally called by someone important to do something important or not, you have been called by the most important being in the Universe—namely, God—to do the most important thing a human being can do—is to participate in God’s creative and redemptive work-This is true.
In Order to help those who have been called we would ask that everyone practice these simple supplications daily.

The-Prayer-of-Supplication-Intercession-1
_
13 Questions of Supplication
  • Have I Repented for Past Indiscretion.
  • Am I walking in Unquestioned Obedience to God’s Will.
  • I’m I passionately Seeking After God
  • Do I really Love God
  • Do I have an Intense Love for God’s Word
  • Do I have the passion to win the Lost
  • Do I spend Time in Prayer Daily
  • Do I have a Longing to Please my Heavenly Father
  • Have I separated myself from the World
  • Do I Diligently Study God’s Word
  • Do I attend Church Regularly Did I stay in prayer, or Do I Live the Life
_
A Divine Calling is First Birthed Out of Conviction

In closing-A divine calling is first birthed out of conviction. God miraculously does a work—either immediately or progressively—on a person’s heart, and that work propels the person into action. Many refer to Paul’s Damascus road experience as the immediate heart-change of God.

_

Certainly, this is where the Holy Spirit entered Paul’s heart. However, the Father had been progressively and relentlessly pursuing Paul long before then. Paul’s heart had always belonged to God; his vision was just a little distorted  Through alignment and anointing, God sets us on track to pursue the vision and purpose he has for each of our lives.

_

Our acceptance of that calling means that we say yes to God and fearlessly abandon anything that does not work toward his ends shield-of-faith-clipart-1

For immediate Release: Press Conference Social Justice Activist call for Accountability and answers in the death of Shawn Brider-Today at 5:30pm

Posted on Updated on

Today  April 12, 2017 -at 5:30 pm at Chicago Police Station 3rd District 7040 S. Cottage Grove Ave, Chicago, IL 60637

A group of civil rights activist and Family members said, Shawn Brider should have never been arrested Sunday night after falling asleep in a parked car with a child inside. At about 4:30 a.m., they were told Brider had died in custody at the 3rd District.

The man was found dead in the lockup area of a Chicago police station Monday morning in the Grand Crossing neighborhood. Police reports said the man was found unresponsive at about 12:15 a.m. in the 3rd District Police Station lockup in the 7400-block of South Cottage Grove Avenue. As the day went on, the department’s spokesman said it appears the man may have had a cardiac arrest. Reports show about 4:30 a.m.,they were told Brider had died in custody at the 3rd District

Activist, strongly feel that Brider never should have been arrested on Sunday night for just merely falling asleep in a parked car even with a small child inside.  Activist and Briders family are questioning why Brider was taken into custody in the first place.
“He was just waiting for his girlfriend to come downstairs and he nodded off because he had been driving. They arrested him for that,” Kewonda Brider said.

“The Black Community in Poor Chicago are systematically being worn down and worn out by the constant microaggressions, When a suspect is arrested for merely sleeping in a car, we would have to ask the question where is the accountability? Did Brider have to be arrested and taken to the district or could he have been ticked?-The evidence is super compelling: The Chicago Police Department is in urgent need of reform. While the problems are clear, the path to solutions is filled with controversy. Even after Chicago Police Department was sanctioned by federal investigators who found that officers routinely used excessive force against minorities and tolerated “racially discriminatory conduct” by officers we still are seeing widespead abuse and issues-that could be rountinely avoidible.”What needs to happen is the time has now come for a frank and insightful discussion of what it will take to achieve true police reform in Chicago.  We will now push harder for the city to reform it’s policing policy.

Cook County Medical Examiner’s office has done an autopsy, but the results are pending more test results. Police are conducting a death investigation, and no further information was immediately available.

April 7, 2017 at Broadview Immigration Processing Center (1930 Beach St., Broadview, IL)

A group of civil rights and immigrant activists will gather on this Friday morning to express fears over the direction President Donald Trump is taking the country with immigrant rights.

They fear families will be torn apart by deportation and blocked from reuniting with relatives seeking to flee war and oppression in other countries after the president signed a pair of executive orders tightening immigration measures.

“We are working to wake up those who refuse to believe that “making America great again”  means spreading a message of racial separatism and hate.  closing off our nation with walls, illegally detaining men, women, and children, stripping cities of federal funding and tearing families apart with deportations,” For the record Freedom First International is part of the group also participated in the massive Trump protest in Chicago that put 16,000. people in Downtown.” Gregg L.Greer President of Freedom First International.

 For the record:

At the start of this effort the Family members and Community activist-Leadership will hold a joint Press Conference (briefing) -This Friday/morning April 7, 2017 in Broadview, IL at 7:15 AM, people of faith, civil rights activist and others will join together in a prayer vigil-protest demonstration at Broadview Immigration Processing Center (1930 Beach St., Broadview, IL) to support those who are in the immigration deportation process, the families of those being deported, and to be a public witness to the injustices of our harsh (enhanced) immigration system. The event will be coordinated by members of several organizations who will join leadership on the ground. Stand with us!

Allegedly Donald Trump Hired Russian Prostitutes to Pee In Beds He Knew the Obamas Slept!

Posted on Updated on

 

Greer Front Banner 2016

 

no-trump

Today news broke that Russian operatives have a raft of comprising material on Donald Trump that they are holding to use against him.

As reported by various sources including the Root, and CNN-A person claiming to be a former British intelligence official compiled a dossier that has been circulating for weeks among elected officials, intelligence agents, and journalists, making claims that the Russian government has been “cultivating, supporting and assisting” President-elect Donald Trump for years and gained compromising information about him.

The dossier is a collection of memos reportedly written over a period of months, and includes specific but unverified allegations of contact between Trump aides and Russian operatives. It also contains graphic claims of sexual acts documented by the Russians which are also unverified. CNN reported on Tuesday that a two-page synopsis of the dossier was given to President Obama and President-elect Trump.

BuzzFeed has obtained and published the full document “so that Americans can make up their own minds about allegations about the president-elect that have circulated at the highest levels of the U.S. government.”

Much of what is in the report are things that have already been widely reported and speculated on in the media, including Russia interfering in the election by providing information on Hillary Clinton and the like. The most salacious claims, however, allege that Trump has some kinky ideas on what to do in the bedroom.

According to the report, Donald Trump allegedly rented the Presidential Suite at the Moscow Ritz Carlton Hotel “where he knew President and Mrs. Obama (whom he hated) had stayed on one of their official trips to Russia.” The report goes on to say that Trump “defiled” the room by hiring prostitutes and having them “perform a ‘golden showers’ (urination) show in front of him.”

The room was allegedly full of concealed microphones and concealed cameras in all the main rooms to record anything that happened in them.

The president-elect’s attorney, Michael Cohen, said that the allegations were false.

“It’s so ridiculous on so many levels,” Cohen said. “Clearly the person who created this did so from their imagination or did so hoping that the liberal media would run with this fake story for whatever rationale they have.”

Trump also spoke out against the reports on his own Twitter feed.

The two-page synopsis also included allegations that there was a continuing exchange of information during the campaign between Trump surrogates and intermediaries for the Russian government, according to two national security officials

For Immediate Release: Chicago Activist Leadership will Rally at murder scene and family owned bar-calling for the immediate arrest of Rouge Chicago Police Officer

Rouge Chicago Cop-John Poulos”

 

***** Media Advisory *****


CHICAGO, IL-Social Justice activist will speak out and stand together for a Protest Rally on December 6, 2016 at 5:00pm. They are calling attention to- Sgt. John Poulos is being investigated for multiple incidents of “unjustified and excessive use of force.” According to police, the sergeant said he opened fire after 19-year-old Kajuan Raye twice pointed a gun at him during a foot chase two weeks ago-an incident weeks agao in the West Englewood neighborhood of Chicago. Soon afterward Poulos shot Raye in the back in cold blood. Police never found a weapon, despite a thorough search of the area. In 2013 Poulos shot and killed Rickey Rozelle in a darkened gangway at 1935 North Lincoln in Chicago. Poulos later relayed that he pulled the trigger because Rozelle threatened to kill him and “turned toward [him] with a shiny, metallic object in or near his hand,” according to records from the Chicago Police Department and IPRA. CPD awared this cop for his actions even promoted him. 
It’s time to get bad cops of the streets for Public safety-We want to send a clear message to the public-that we won’t stop until this “Killer” cop is jailed. Stand with us at the Poulos owned family bar-STEPS from where Rickey Rozelle was murdered. 

QUOTE: We believe only sadistic serial predators, “kill like that”-it would seem to us that the time is over due for change with the way the City of Chicago investigates “bad cops” because overall the results have shown absolute failure. Yes, we are asking Kim Fox to get involved as well as Federal Authorities, we must also question the role of our city leadership-post “Laquan McDonald,” due to the fact that to date we are seeing the unnecessary loss of life-at the hands of police. This time, I and Freedom First International plan to use any and all resources available, Chicago Policing must change now, or may more people will, die.
