Praying For Bishop Jerome Stokes Who Was Attacked With A Hammer During Last Sunday Worship Service.

Image
Does anyone else wonder about the rising number of these senseless acts? Another senseless act. I don’t know what to make of all these acts of extreme hate. Every day there is a headline concerning this type of behavior. Most are (now) attributed to the attacker having some sort of “mental issue.”  Anyhow, members of a Baltimore church "The Church of the Redeemed of the Lord" are giving thanks that their longtime pastor wasn’t seriously injured during a mid-service assault on November 20. According to news reports, a 55-year-old man allegedly attacked Bishop Jerome Stokes with a hammer during Sunday worship at The Church of the Redeemed of the Lord (CRL). Stokes, 78, received only a minor laceration on one ear. The alleged attacker, whom police say may have been having a mental health crisis, was evaluated at a local hospital.    ( You Can Read About It Here )

Balenciaga, One Of The Most Famous Brands, Has Crossed The Line.

Image
What yall think about this? Balenciaga is a luxury fashion brand, marketed to Hollywood and multi-millionaire elites. Recently, Balenciaga dropped an ad campaign featuring young children holding teddy bears dressed in BDSM-style harnesses, kids surrounded by alcohol, and other adult-rated themes. Also included were a number of subtle messages relating to sexualizing children, and satanic symbolism.   In one of the photos, Balenciaga was spell-ed "Baalenciaga" on yellow caution tape. Baal is an ancient Canaanite demon God. Pagans ritualistically sacrificed children to this demon. They also slipped a document under a Handbag that refers to a court case trying to normalize the Online Grooming of Kids. This is not a conspiracy theory, and it's not by accident. This photoshoot would only get the go-ahead from the highest people at the brand.  Balenciaga pulled the ad campaign after a serious backlash. What's even worse - this ad campaign was simply ahead of its time. Gi

Pastor E.Dewey Smith Church In DeKalb County Files Lawsuit After Financial Scheme Costs Church Millions🐾

Image
Pastor E. Dewey Smith a local megachurch pastor in Atlanta GA, is speaking out to Channel 2 Action News about a financial scheme targeting Black congregations across the country. House of Hope Atlanta filed a lawsuit on Tuesday because of what they are calling a nationwide conspiracy that cost them millions of dollars.  Pastor E. Dewey Smith said before he speaks in the sanctuary of Greater Travelers Rest Baptist Church, one of Georgia’s most prominent houses of worship, with more than 10,000 members, he turns to God for guidance. But before he spoke one recent Sunday, he turned to church attorneys too, and in the place where he delivers the good news, he delivered some bad news to his congregation.  “Recently we discovered some information that’s been incredibly troubling,” Smith told his congregation on Sunday. According to Smith, when Greater Travelers Rest bought its current home, it was victimized by a complicated financial scheme. Now, the church has filed a lawsuit saying it

Salute To You Madame Speaker Nancy Pelosi!

Image
Nancy Pelosi is leaving her position…so sad…I remember when she was chosen everybody was so proud of what she was going to do and she did it. I remember she did an excellent job with Obama…so so so proud of her…I like the way she handled Jan. 6 was historic. She was able to think and act during that assault. She is outstanding for coming to the House as a grandma, blocking President G. W. Bush's efforts to "privatize" Social Security, shepherded Pres. Obama's "Affordable Care Act" through the House past vigorous Republican opposition, and shepherded President Biden's promised legislation through the House: The Cares Act, Infrastructure Bill, Veterans' Bill, Chips Bill, etc. During her 20 years as Speaker, she was the best, most effective Speaker of the House in US History. Brilliant, professional, dedicated, wise, tenacious, immensely effective . . . I could go on and on, salute to you Madame Speaker, you will be missed. 

Thanks To Mr. Gerald Jackson Over At 'The North Carolina Beat' For Making Shanquella Robinson Name Viral.

Image
Shout out to my blog buddy Mr. Gerald Jackson  over at The North Carolina Beat for doing an amazing, awesome, incredible job on this story, which has caused the story to go viral and has forced the authority and the power to be to take action.  Today the Mexican authorities have confirmed that they are now investigating the death of a 25-year-old North Carolina woman as a homicide after the mystery surrounding her death gained national attention.  Shanquella Robinson’s parents were initially told their daughter died from alcohol poisoning while on a trip with friends in Cabo, Mexico, that she left from Charlotte on Oct. 28. But they aren’t convinced that is the truth. “After they said it was alcohol poisoning, we received the autopsy report and it said that her neck had been broken and she had a back spasm there was a crack, the spinal cord was cracked,” Robinson’s mother, Salamondra Robinson, said.  “That took it to a whole ‘nother level because that meant somebody had attacked her.”

White Evangelical Figures Turn On Trump: 'He Used Us'🤣🤣

Image
Some white faith leaders are speaking out about Donald Trump. "He used us" is trending on social media.  I've been waiting for the church's response to the AntiChristTrump running again. They put in the article below that he used them to win his first election. He said bad things that they didn't agree with but they kept their mouth shut & they will endorse him. Evangelical figures who previously supported Donald Trump are backing off now that he’s announced his third bid for the presidency. “Donald Trump can’t save America,” Mike Evans told The Washington Post. “He can’t even save himself.” Evans was part of a group of evangelicals who met with Trump at the White House, and at one point gave him an award. Now, he says he’s done with Trump. “He used us to win the White House. We had to close our mouths and eyes when he said things that horrified us,” Evans told the newspaper. “I cannot do that anymore.” Robert Jeffress, one of Trump’s evangelical advisers

Officials Say $1.5M Stolen From Churches In 14 Different States!

Image
According to authorities, a crime ring operated out of Houston Texas but stole donations from churches in 14 states across the Midwest, Southeast, and California. The crime ring is alleged to have raided church mailboxes for donation checks, taking approximately $154,000 in donation checks from 36 churches in Fayette County alone. The ring primarily operated during the COVID-19 pandemic and subsequent lockdowns, when most churches were not holding in-person worship, and many church members would send donations to church mailboxes instead.  

Relationship Guru Derrick Jaxn Wife Is On Social Media Casting Spells🐾

Image
So relationship Guru Derrick Jaxn's wife DaNaia Jackson has spoken a curse on anyone who has her husband's name in their mouth. DaNaia Jackson says to keep her husband's name out of yall mouths. Now one thing I do know you can’t use the LORD for your revenge. You need to let God take care of people who you claim are your enemy.  You don’t have a heaven or a hell to put anyone in. God didn’t tell your husband to become a public figure and mislead HIS people. Your husband fell short along the way and that’s cool we all do. But don’t ever blame anyone but yourselves for the mess y’all created. Shaking my head, she prayed folks' children become vagabonds and orphaned due to their parents' deaths. 

The Satanic Temple is "Unbaptizing" people for $10🐾

Image
The satanic temple is performing unbaptism for $10, claiming thyself is thy master.  The last days are here. They evidently aren't aware that they have no power to do such a thing. A water baptism is just a show of obedience, and those who don't partake have either never truly converted or are just plain disobedient. A person cannot lose their spiritual baptism aka their Salvation. That is held in the hands of Christ and the Lord our Father and none are able to take it away. Those who proclaim Christ as Savior and then turn away probably never truly converted  or repented. This is so sick.  

Is ”Wakanda Forever” Promoting African Spirituality? If So Should Christians Support The Movie?

Image
The following post from Prophet Abednego Lufile has gone viral and ruffled a few feathers along the way.     I watched the preview of ”Wakanda Forever” and it is undoubtedly one of the most demonic previews I’ve ever watched. It’s all about African spirituality and the marine kingdom. It’s filled with water spirits and a world under the sea. It’s embedded with voodoo and rituals that can easily demonize those that watch this film. This film was carefully put together and there was much studying of African spirituality and deities that are worshipped in the water. African spirituality isn’t empowering, it’s draining, demonic and disgusting. You get zero power from your ancestors, you get demonic ancestral spirits that deceive you into believing you are powerful. Africans, black men, and women, we don’t come from this evil! Though our ancestors engaged in these practices and beliefs, our origin dates back to YHWH in the garden. Evil Practices/false gods known in African spirituality and

Migos Rapper Takeoff Pastor Reveals He ‘loved coming to worship’🐾

Image
Details surrounding Takeoff's funeral services emerged following his tragic death at age 28 two weeks ago. Some folks are upset ( you can read it here) with the Rightwing-leaning Christian Post for putting up the below post. They're saying that TakeOff who was killed this month in Houston Texas, made music glorifying all the things that God hates.  "Our heart breaks for him and his family but we need to be honest about where people go when they die. Maybe in the moments before he died he came to Christ. We don't know. But the life he lived did not bear fruit in keeping with repentance. You're called the Christian Post. I encourage you to accurately represent that name by getting the essentials of faith right. First of which is that it is only through faith and repentance in Christ that someone is saved. Not by going to church and enjoying the worship". 

Family In Oklahoma Murder-Suicide Struggled With Financial Pressures🐾

Image
Why this couple didn't hock, sell, or pawn their guns? According to the article, the Nelson's bankruptcy filing shows they possessed nine guns, valued at more than 18,000 each, and at the time of the filing, they both pointed out their unemployment. An Oklahoma couple named by authorities as “primary suspects” in last week’s murder-suicide that left their six children dead faced mounting money woes, while the husband suffered from crippling pain caused by an old head injury, family members have said. Two adults and six children were found dead on Oct. 27 inside a burning home in the Tulsa suburb of Broken Arrow. Local police on Sunday identified the parents as Brian Nelson, 34, and Brittney Nelson, 32, but provided no information on whether both adults took part in the killings of their children, who ranged in age from 1 to 13. Brian Nelson’s parents, Danny and Marilyn, told the Tulsa World that their son had asked if they could come over at 3 p.m. Thursday to babysit their gra

Bishop T.D.Jakes Invites Texas Racist Governor Greg Abbott To The Potter's House.

We see you, Greg Abbott, you know the Black vote is powerful when your racist behind makes your way down to The Potter’s House of Dallas on the Sunday before Election Day. Like I said we see you.   

A Doggone Shame, Kyrie Irving, Is What Manufactured Outrage Looks Like🤔🤔

Image
This is what I call manufactured outrage, Kyrie Irving was kicked off his basketball team, stripped of lucrative contracts, and smeared by the press for promoting a movie. Kyrie posted the below (photo) and got suspended. Irving posted a tweet — which has since been deleted — last week with a link to the documentary “Hebrews to Negroes: Wake Up Black America,” which includes Holocaust denial and conspiracy theories about Jews. Nike splits with Kyrie Irving amid antisemitism. I’m still wondering are all these people attempting to cancel Kyrie Irving canceling their Amazon Prime? The platform making money & promoting this film? Hypocrisy is dragging Kyrie Irving for sharing a controversial documentary because he has 17 million followers, but having no smoke for Amazon Prime for platforming the documentary when they have 200 million members. — Bishop Talbert Swan (@TalbertSwan) November 5, 2022

A Bronze Statue Of Bishop Charles Harrison Mason Will Be Unveiled On November 8, 2022😒

Image
  QUESTION: Are memorial statues offensive to God? Is it idolatry or is it a memorial? Pastor Chad E. Brown ruffled some feathers when he asked the question haven't we done enough to honor Bishop Charles Harrison Mason? He goes on to say that there's a Temple named after him, a street named after him, people named after him, his remains are on-site at the temple, a seminary is named after him, there are pictures everywhere, books about his legacy and the organization he founded is still in existence today! He is acknowledged at EVERY SINGLE MEETING. Folks are even starting to call themselves, "Mason's kids". That's not enough honor? Yall should actually make a big deal out of the bronze graven image. And is there not more that could be done with the almost $100k it cost?! Idolatry is tricky. You can be doing it and not be aware. Somebody is lacking discernment.  And in another post which got a lot of comments:  "The fact that so many people think that the

Hillsong Megachurch Revenue Fell Almost 20% in Last Two Years🐾

Image
According to ( this article ) from Nov. 2, 2022, “Hillsong’s latest annual report reveals the megachurch is bringing in $17 million less in revenue compared to two years ago. That’s a drop of almost 20%, due, at least in part, to a series of controversies.”  “The decline comes as former leader and founder Brian Houston faces charges of covering up his late father’s alleged sex crimes. Houston has vowed to fight the charges, which are expected to be heard in a Sydney court this December. He has yet to enter a plea but has indicated he will plead not guilty.”  “Hillsong is also entangled in a Fair Work case filed by former employee Natalie Moses, who alleges the church unjustly suspended her from her finance department position after repeatedly expressing concerns about financial misconduct and questionable expenditures inside Hillsong.”  “Additionally, there are accusations Houston, who has been married to his wife Bobbie for 45 years, sent inappropriate texts to a staff member, struggl

Get Out Of Here, A $100-M Ad Campaign, “He Gets Us”🐾

Image
I find this troubling and so ironic that they are spending so much money on advertising when it could be used to feed the poor and help others in need. It’s a desperate move as more and more people walk away from churches. They want to keep their power!  An alliance of Christian media ministries has launched a couple of months ago “He Gets Us,” an extensive $100-million-dollar national ad campaign to share inspirational messages about Jesus Christ with “skeptics and seekers.” It features stark ads with messages such as “Jesus suffered anxiety” and “Jesus was in broken relationships.” The campaign is backed by a group of undisclosed wealthy Christians, funding the initiative through the nonprofit group The Signatry. Their financial model relies on donor-advised funds, which have recently come under scrutiny.

An Absolutely POWERFUL SPEECH By Pastor Jamal Bryant🐾

Image
Pastor Jamal Bryant delivered an awesome sermon on Sunday calling Herschel Walker, the GOP nominee for a U.S. Senate seat in Georgia out.    “Y’all ain’t ready for me today,” Bryant warned the congregation at New Birth Missionary Baptist Church during his, blistering critique of the former football star.  "They thought we were so slow, that we were so stupid, that we would elect the lowest caricature of a stereotypical broken black man as opposed to somebody who is educated and erudite and focused! “In 2022, we don’t need a Walker, we need a runner,” Bryant declared. “We need somebody who’s going to run and tell the truth about Jan. 6. We need someone who going to run and push for the cancellation of student loan debts. We need someone who’s going to run and make the former president respond to a subpoena,” he continued. “We don’t need a walker. We need somebody who will be steadfast, unmovable, always abounding, knowing your labor is not in vain.” Pastor Jamal Bryant of Atlant
