Frederick Douglass gave us the answer on September 25 1883, as to why Republican Legislators are so unrelenting on President Obama!

“Though the colored man is no longer subject to barter and sale, he is surrounded by an adverse settlement which fetters all his movements. In his downward course he meets with no resistance, but his course upward is resented and resisted at every step of his progress.

             

If he comes in ignorance, rags and wretchedness he conforms to the popular belief of his character, and in that character he is welcome; but if he shall come as a gentleman, a scholar and a statesman, he is hailed as a contradiction to the national faith concerning his race, and his coming is resented as impudence.” [Frederick Douglass, September 25 1883]

 

HE STILL STANDS TALL!

 

And he still stands tall…God’s grace and peace upon this man is my prayer, and I pray that before the end of his Presidency, people’s heart, mind and eyes will open.

 

There will never be another like him!

 

May he lead and be guided in the way God would want him to lead and guide. He is not perfect and has never claimed to be. He and this whole country are in need of our prayers. It only takes a spark.

 

No President has ever worked this hard for our country. Many wonder, does he ever sleep?

PRESIDENT OBAMA JANUARY 3 2013

Whether it is the thirst of avarice, ambition, pleasure, knowledge, or rest, whoever suffers from it is invited! “2013”

Provision is made most plenteously; all is provided that we can ever need to quench our soul’s thirst. To our conscience the atonement brings peace; to our understanding the gospel brings the richest instructions; to our hearts the person of Jesus is the noblest object of affection; to our entire being the truth as it is in Jesus supplies nutriment. Though the soul may be utterly famished, Jesus can restore it.

 

Admirable indeed is the longsuffering of the Savior in bearing with some of us year after year! Patience had her perfect work in the Lord Jesus, and until the last day of the feast He pleaded with the Jews, even as on this last day of the year He pleads with us, and waits to be gracious to us. Wonder of wonders that we are still in the land of mercy!

 

Piety expressed herself most plainly, for Jesus cried, which implies not only the loudness of His voice, but the tenderness of His tones. He entreats us to be reconciled. How deep must be the love which makes the Lord weeps over us, and like a mother, woo His children to His bosom! Surely at the call of such cry our willing hearts will come.

GOD'S MERCY DECEMBER 31 2012-1

True “Spiritualism” creates “oneness” with God, something, no Religion can accomplish!

God has never been and will never be a “Religion,” irrespective of what that Religion is or may be. Without exception, unequivocally, “all” Religions are the product of “mortal, infallible and imperfect man,” hence the reason for society’s disarray caused by man’s argument about who or what is the true religion.

 

The saint in public is a devil in private, dealing in flour by day and in soot by night. The cake which is burned on one side; is dough on the other! A cake not turned is soon burnt on the side nearest the fire, and although no one can have too much of God, there are some who seem burnt on black with bigoted zeal for the part of truth which they have received, or are charred to a cinder with a vainglorious Pharisaic Ostentation of those religious performances which suite their humor. The assumed appearance of superior sanctity frequently accompanies a total absence of all vital Godliness.

 

Has God’s grace gone through the very centre of our beings so as to be felt in its divine operations in all of our powers, actions, words and our thoughts? To be sanctified, spirit, soul and body; should be our aim and prayer; and although sanctification may not be perfect in us anywhere in degree, yet it must be universal in its action; there must not be the appearance of holiness in one place and reigning sin in another, else we too, wilt be “a cake not turned.”

 

If it be so with me, O Lord, turn me! Turn my unsanctified nature to fire of Thy love and let it feel the sacred glow, and let my burnt side cool a little, while I learn my own weakness and want of heat when I am removed from Thy heavenly flame.

 

Let me not be found a double-minded man, but one entirely under the powerful influence of reigning grace; for well I know if I am left like a cake unturned, and am not on both sides the subject of Thy grace, I must be consumed for ever amid everlasting burnings!
