  1. When I was a young teenager I got involved with a gang that was called the nation of gods and earths. There other name is the five percenters. They were a very rough group of teenagers. The gang I was in had an influence on all the teenagers that guided them either to jail or prison and in most cases both. The gang had a propaganda that taught hatred against the white race so it was a racist group. The reason why it was a racist group was because the man who started it was a racist man. The man who started it was called Clearance 13x Smith. He was a criminal and that is why there was a great influence from the gang to influence the teenagers who got involved in the gang to go either to jail or prison or both. Jail and prison was the place that all of us ended up some time in our lives when we were in the gang. Jail and prison was the only destiny for all the teenagers who were in the gang and jail was were I ended up, but not prison. All of the teenagers that were in the five percenters the same time I was; they all ended up in prison, except me. The only lockup I been in was the city and county jail. Jesus was the complete reason why I didn't end up in prison. Many of the teenagers I hung with back then committed some very serious crimes. These are some stories so you can see the kind of teenagers I ran with. There were two teenagers I ran with who were called Shabazz and El-Seek. By the way, when a teenager got into the gang, the teenager who put them in it would change their names. Changing your name was mandatory. My full name when I was in it was Lord Creative King Jahmeek and the last name was the name of the god the Moslems worship which I refuse to say, but you should know what it is. Back to the story: There were two teenagers I ran with who raped an old white lady in 1984. Both of them got 18 years a piece. When they got out, one of them when back to prison for another rape and the other went back to prison for stabbing his mother to death. Another teenager I ran with killed a college student at a bar one night for no reason at all. He did it because he had a desire to kill someone. He has been released and is doing very good. Another teenager I was extremely close to grabbed a police officers gun and shoot both police officers. He will never get out. I remember one time we went to one of his girlfriends house unannounced and she had another guy there. We stayed a brief moment then we left. As we were out in the hallway he said to me, yo Jahmeek I am going to kill that guy, so I said, yo, lets go it aint worth it, so we left. If I hadn't stopped him from killing that guy he would have been in prison for that instead of shooting those cops. Jesus always gave me a sense of awareness that other people don't have. I remember when I was 18 I was involved with this drug kingpin. He had the best cocaine than anyone else so we were making a lot of money. I said to him one day that the police is watching us. Now he was a grown man. I got connected to him because I was dating his daughter. I said to him, the police is watching us. He said to me, you are just paranoid the police don't even know about us. So I left him alone along with his daughter. One day his daughter called me crying on the phone and she said, you were right, the police was watching my father. 50 people went to jail and than prison. One time when I was living in Birmingham, Alabama I was living in this apartment complex. Everyone who lived there got their apartment broken into excepted me, so for the reason, everyone thought it was me who was doing the break ins, but it wasn't me. One time I brought this very nice Buick Park Ave and after I brought it, I brought it to a friends house so he could see it. The first thing he said to me is, John you better get a club for that car because that car is a target. Well, sure enough someone tried to steal the car, but they didn't get it. They broke the steering wheel column, but they didn't get the car. We don't know what scared them off, but some thing did. I can go on and on with testimonies. Some you wouldn't believe. Those testimonies aren't testimonies compared to other testimonies I have. When I was a teenager I ran with some very, extremely, rough teenagers. I wasa drug addict and an alcoholic when I was a teenager.
  2. Amen. That is completely true and very well said.
  3. The Mind and the Heart The mind and the heart are both in the body and both of them are spirits. Because they are both spirits, they are invisible to the naked eye. Even though the mind and the heart are both spirits, one is a part of the body and the other one isn't. The mind is a part of the body and the heart isn't. Because the mind is a part of the body, the mind is considered as the flesh, just as the body is considered as the flesh. The heart is a spirit that is in the body, just as well as the mind, but the heart is not a part of the flesh, it is separated from the flesh. The mind is located in our brains and the heart is located in the center of our trunks, which is our body. Both, the mind and the heart have the ability to think, but only one of them is able of understanding. The heart, out of the two, is the only one that is able of understanding. Why? Jesus only speaks to the heart, but not the mind. Jesus is the spiritual person who gives us an understanding of things. Jesus gives His understanding only to the heart. Jesus gives His understanding only to the heart, because the heart is the spirit that comes from His kingdom before it is placed in us by Him. Jesus is a part of us all through our hearts. The heart is made from the same spiritual substance that makes up God's kingdom. So the heart and God's kingdom is made from the same spiritual substance. That's why Jesus chooses to live in the heart when He decides to live in man. Every time a person does those things that are good, the good things they do come from the heart, because the heart is the only part of us that Jesus will deal with. When we do those things that are good our hearts receives power from the Holy Spirit to do whatever it was we did that was good. Even though the mind doesn't understand and the heart does, there is something the both of them have in common and that is the ability to think. That is how the both of them are able to communicate. The mind communicates with the heart, but the heart doesn't communicate with the mind. Why? The heart does not sin on its own. Matter of fact, the heart doesn't sin; the mind is the spirit that sins. What happens is the mind influences the heart to sin. The heart prefers to be obedient to Jesus, because it is made up of the same spiritual substance of the place where Jesus lives, but the mind isn't. The mind is a spirit that is created from the thinking the brain does. If the brain didn't think, the mind wouldn't exist. Thoughts are spiritual, just like sin is spiritual. Sin can't be seen before it is committed. Sin is seen after it is committed. The mind is created by the thoughts of the brain and the heart is created by Jesus. The mind is a part of the flesh because the mind is created at the same time the body is created. Even though, the person isn’t alive yet to think. For that reason, the mind is a part of the body. Once the fetus is created and there is nothing more to create concerning the fetus, then Jesus put our souls into our bodies and then the fetus comes to life. Now I don't want to confuse you, because I mentioned the soul and not the heart. The heart is in the soul. The soul is the outer and the heart is the inner. In other words, the heart is in the soul. The soul houses the heart. Take a car for an example, the frame of the car is the outer and the engine is the inner. The frame of the car is the soul and the engine is the heart. That's another story. Sin comes from the mind. The mind influences the heart to sin. The heart influences the soul to release the sin, after the soul tells the heart the difference between right and wrong. When the heart sins, the heart is influence by the mind to sin. When thoughts go from the mind to the heart, the thoughts are still thoughts, but they are thought’s that become desires if the heart refuses to reject the sin, after the soul tells it the difference between right and wrong. After the sinful thought’s becomes desires in the heart, then those desires go into the soul and the soul pushes them back to the mind and the mind uses them to influence the brain to respond. When the brain responds the result is a bad action. When the heart does what is good, then the heart has control over the mind for a brief moment. If a person is holy like Jesus, then the heart has control over the mind all the time. Then the heart influences the mind to think the thoughts that are good all the time.
  4. Rudolph the Red Nose Rein Deer In Ireland, in the winter, during the time of St. Nicholas, people would use deer’s as a way to travel, but in the spring, summer and fall, the people would use horses as a way to travel. Horses can’t travel in snow, but deer’s can travel in snow. Not only can a deer travel in the snow, but it can pull something in the snow, just as well as it walks in the snow. In Ireland, in the winter, during the time of St. Nicholas, people would use a group of deer’s and a sled to travel from one place to another. Deer’s back during that time were more than capable of doing that because they grew much bigger back then, then they do now. If a deer would grow like it should, it would be almost the size of a horse. That was the size a deer was back then and it’s probably the size a deer is now in certain countries. So because of the deer’s size in Ireland back then, they were more than capable of pulling a sled that was big enough to carry two or three people at the time. Back during the time of St. Nicholas, the people who would use that method of travel were people who were rich and wealthy and St. Nicholas was a man who was rich as well as wealthy. St. Nicholas was a land owner and an animal owner just as many other rich and wealthy people were back during that time. In Ireland, during the time of St. Nicholas, rich and wealthy people would make deer’s a part of their cattle only for the purpose of winter travel. St. Nicholas had many deer’s he would raise as his cattle, but only a few of them were red nose deer’s. All deer’s are smart and very sensitive to the environment. Some deer’s are smarter than others animals. Some deer’s are so sensitive to the environment, they can stop at the same exact spot every time and a deer can do the same thing with a multitude or a number of stops and it will be the exact same spot every time they stop. Some deer’s can do that, but not all of them. But all of them are smart and very sensitive to the environment. St. Nicholas gave a lot of toy’s to a lot of kids on Christmas day, so because of that, he made several trips. The trips he made, they were the same trips he made every year as he would drop off presents to kids. St. Nicholas would use several deer’s to pull his sled, but the deer he had in the front would be the red nose deer. St. Nicholas would separate the red nose deer from the rest of the deer’s as he would raise them. It was extremely important for St. Nicholas to have a red nose deer because of the multitude of stops he had to make as he would drop off Christmas presents to kids. A red nose deer would make his delivery easier. A red nose deer would make St. Nicholas delivery easier because St. Nicholas couldn’t and wouldn’t get out of his sled to deliver the presents because there were so many stops. So what he would do is he would toss the presents out of the sled, when the red nose deer would stop the sled and the parents of the kids would come out to get the presents. So St. Nicholas needed a deer that could stop at the exact spot where he needed to be without any pulling, to get the deer to stop. The deer would stop on its own when it knew it was at the place where it needed to stop. The deer that was capable of doing that was called the red nose deer and because the red nose deer was in control of the other deer’s as they traveled, Rudolph was called the rein deer. This deer was the deer that St. Nicholas always had in the front. This deer was the deer that led the other deer’s. The other deer’s would know to stop by the red nose deer. The red nose deer was the deer that had every stop memorize. This deer knew when to stop, every time it needed to stop, without being told or notified to stop. This deer learned St. Nicholas route as it helped the other deer’s pull St. Nicholas sled. St. Nicholas had a few deer’s that were like that and he always put that deer in front. This type of deer was called the red nose deer because a deer’s sense’s is in its nose. In other words, the deer was and is sensitive through its nose. Back during the time of St. Nicholas, a deer’s nose was considered red when it had a very high level of sensitivity and the deer St. Nicholas had in the front of the other deer’s, had a very high level a sensitivity that would cause it to stop at the exact stop that St. Nicholas needed to stop, which was at the place where he had to drop off presents to a kid. The red nose deer was the only deer St. Nicholas gave a name too and he did that because of the deer’s intellect, which had everything to do with its sensitivity. When the tradition of Christmas came to America, the name, the red nose deer was changed to red nose rain deer. The American deer likes rain a great deal. The American deer will stand in the rain all day. It likes the feel of rain as the rain falls on its body.
  5. Santa Claus Christmas is a special holiday that spread rapidly and quickly all over the world. Christmas is a special holiday that has everything to do with Jesus. If Jesus never came into the world, the special holiday called Christmas would never exist. The tradition of giving gifts on Christmas day has everything to do with the birth of Jesus. After the birth of Jesus, three wise men who travel to see Jesus from the east, the place they came from was called Babylon. Those three wise men left the east and went to Bethlehem to visit the baby Jesus. When the three wise men arrived at the place where the baby Jesus was they gave gifts to Jesus parents as a celebration for His birth. The gifts were given to Joseph and Mary as a sign of the great respect the three wise men had for the parents of Jesus. The three wise men had great respect for Joseph and Mary, because they were the two people that God the Father had chosen to be the guardians of His Son. The great respect the three wise men had for Joseph and Mary was shown through their giving and not only through their giving, but their great respect was shown through what they gave. The three wise men were very wealthy men, but Joseph and Mary were two people who were very poor. So in the giving situation that went on between the three wise men and the parents of Jesus, it was a situation where the rich gave to the poor. The gifts, the three wise men gave to the parents of Jesus were gold, frankincense and myrrh. These three items were items that were owned only by people who were wealthy back during the time of Jesus. The ideal of giving gifts on the day of Christmas, which came into exist by the three wise men, became the tradition of Christmas to everyone or all most everyone all over the world. The tradition of giving gifts on Christmas became very popular in Europe many years after the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus. The tradition of Christmas, when it has to do only with the giving of gifts on Christmas day, started in one place in Europe and that place was Ireland. After the giving of gifts on Christmas day started in Ireland, it spread rapidly throughout Europe. Then everyone in Europe adopted the tradition of giving gifts to other people on Christmas day. The tradition of giving gifts to other people on Christmas day started by one person in Ireland and that person was called St. Nicholas. St. Nicholas existed in the 10th century. During the time of St. Nicholas there were many people in Ireland who were faithful to the Father through Jesus and because of their faithfulness to the Father through Jesus they developed a heart of giving. Out of all of the Christians who lived in Ireland, St. Nicholas was the person who had the strongest desire to give. When St. Nicholas was alive, he was one of the wealthiest people who lived in Ireland. He was a man who owned a tremendous amount of land and that was what made him wealthy. St. Nicholas had many people who worked for him. St. Nicholas worked all day. In the early part of the day, he would work on his land and in the later part of the day he would make toys for children. The toys he made he would sell, but he would sell them to a particular group who were the upper class. St. Nicholas would give free toys throughout the year to kids who came from poor families, but he would give them out in small numbers. So each kid in a poor family would get one or two toys at a time. St. Nicholas did that many times throughout the year, but there was one particular time of the year when St. Nicholas would give many toys to many poor kids at the same time and that time of the year is the time of the year we call Christmas. In Ireland, during the time of St. Nicholas, the weather was the same as it was in the northeast between 1970 and 1980. It was freezing cool with a large amount of snow throughout the winter season. The kids St. Nicholas gave toys to, they were kids whose parents were employees of St. Nicholas. St. Nicholas would go from house to house of the people who were his employees and give gifts to their kids and he would use a sled and a group of deer’s to do that. When the tradition of Christmas reached America in the 17th century, the true folk tale of St. Nicholas changed as well as his name. When Christmas arrived in America, St. Nicholas was given the name Santa Claus. Not only was his named changed, but his appearance was changed as well. The way he gave gifts out was changed. St. Nicholas name was changed to Santa Claus by a group of Christians who were of Spanish descent. In the 17th century, St. Nicholas was called Santa Claus in Spanish. St. Nicholas wasn’t a fat man, he was a skinny man. His appearance as being a fat man came from a man who tried to imitate in America, what St. Nicholas did in Ireland. The man who tried to imitate St. Nicholas in America, he was a fat man. The way he dress as Santa Claus was the traditional way of dressing in America back during that time. Santa Claus’s hat was actually a nightcap that people wore in America back during that time and at night, “according to the folk tale” was when Santa Claus would go around and hand out presents. In America, in the 17th century, the way Santa Claus gave out gifts was he would go down a chimney. This folk tale started by something people use to do in their homes during Christmas time and what the people use to do during Christmas time, back during the time of Santa Claus, was they would put up their trees and laid out their presents under the tree near the fire place. Back in the 17th and 18th century, people would put up their Christmas tree and put presents under the Christmas tree near the fire place, because near the fire place was the only place where there was light in the house at night. So the fire place was the place where the tree was put up and the presents were laid.
  6. Lifted Up from the Earth I thank God the Father and the Lord Jesus for the many blessing They have allowed for me to receive from Their Kingdom. The scripture I will explain is in John the 12th chapter and the 32nd verse. In the 32nd verse it says, And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me. This is another scripture that a lot of people in the church misunderstand. The reason why this scripture is misunderstood is because it doesn’t mean the way it sounds and there are some scriptures in the Holy Bible that are like that and this is one of those scriptures. During the time when Jesus was on this earth in the flesh, the Roman Empire was in control of the land of Israel. During the time of Jesus, the Roman Empire had conquered Jerusalem and the surrounding areas of Jerusalem. There were certain ways of execution the Romans would use to punish people for their crimes and being hung from a wooden cross was one of their forms of execution. The people in whom the Roman government would execute on a wooden cross were the people whose judgement of execution was determine by the people in public. The people whose judgement of execution was determined in private by a group of Roman officials, they were mostly executed another way other than on a wooden cross. During the time of Jesus, there was a complete separation between the two different groups of powerful people. So in the land of Canaan, during the time of Jesus, there were two groups of people that were in power and those groups of people who were in power in the land of Canaan, during the time of Jesus, were the Roman government and the Jewish leaders. Both groups had a different influence of power from each other, but both powers didn’t cancel out each other. Both powers didn’t interfere with each other. So in other words, the Roman government didn’t interfere with the decisions the Jewish leaders made and the Jewish leaders didn’t interfere with the decisions the Roman government made. Both groups of people stayed away from each other concerning the decision they made just as long as the decisions didn’t affect the way each group could conduct their business on a day to day basis. The Roman government and the Jewish leaders had a lot of respect towards one another and for that reason there were some criminal cases that both groups would be directly involved in at the same time. Matter of fact; the situations that would bring both groups together were criminal cases because the only people who would mostly be arrest for a crime were either Jewish or Roman. In today’s society there are many powerful groups of people and they all handle different situations. Because they all handle different situations their jobs keep them away from each other. An example of that are the many different law enforcements that are in the United States. All the law enforcements in the United States have their own form of power, but they are all powerful agencies. Each law enforcement stay out of the way of the other law enforcement. For that reason, each law enforcement agency doesn’t interfere with the decisions that are made by another law enforcement agency and each law enforcement agency has their own cases to deal with. But there are some cases that will cause two or may be three different law enforcement agencies to come together. Kidnapping cases for an example will bring the FBI, the City Police and the State Police together, but other cases outside of that criminal case will cause each law enforcement agency to operate on their own inside their own jurisdiction. There might be a few more criminal cases that will bring two or three law enforcement agencies together, but that is the only one I can think of right now. The criminal cases that fits more than one jurisdiction is the criminal case that will cause more than one law enforcement agency to come together. For thousands of years, there has always been something that have brought more than one person together or a group of people together. What have brought more than one person together or a group of people together is something that has to get the interest of both parties. In a Kidnapping cases, the interest of that crime has the interest of the FBI because it is a crime that will cause a person to move from one part of the United States to another part of the United States and that kind of crime has the interest of the City and State police because the person who is kidnapped may across and go through a specific city and state jurisdiction. What causes all three law enforcement jurisdiction to come together is because it is a crime and as we know all crimes are handled by law enforcement, either by one law enforcement or the other. Crime also brings together another powerful agency with the law enforcement agency and that agency is known as the court system. In the same way, the court system doesn’t interfere with the law enforcement agency and the law enforcement doesn’t interfere with the court system agency, but because of crime, the two are brought together. All of the different agencies in the United States have power and they don’t allow for their powers to interfere with each other, even when they come together. This kind of interaction between powerful agencies has gone on for years and it was something that was going on between powerful people during the time of Jesus. Just like today, there were many powerful groups that worked together during the time of Jesus, but when they didn’t work together they didn’t interfere with the power or situations of the other group that was also powerful themselves. All law enforcement agencies and the court system have power over the people. That is something that goes on today and also during the time of Jesus. Just as the law enforcement and the court system have power over the people, in the same way, the Roman government and the Jewish leaders had power over the people during the time of Jesus. The fate of many people was place in their hands, regardless, if the person was innocent or guilty. Just like today, the Roman government and the Jewish leaders had their own criminal jurisdiction. The FBI criminal jurisdiction is the federal government and the City Police jurisdiction is the city or local government. So for that reason, each criminal case they have, which is different from one another is handled in a different court. The cases of the FBI are handled in a federal court and the cases of the City Police is handled in a city court, but if the crime brings both law enforcement agencies together than the criminal cases are handled in both courts, but at different times and the federal court is the court that the case will end up in with two kinds of charges. A city charge and a government charge. That was the same kind of criminal system that existed during the time of Jesus because there was more than one group of people who handled criminal cases just like there are many different law enforcement agencies that handled criminal cases today. Just like during the time of Jesus, today there are more than one court system that handle criminal cases and they are the federal court, the county court and the city court and as we know each court have their own law enforcement that handle their cases. The federal court is handled by the FBI, the county court is handled by the Sheriff and the city court is handled by the City Police, but when the crime covers more than one jurisdiction than the three courts are brought together towards one criminal case, but the highest court will end up getting the criminal case at the end and that court is the federal court. The trial of Jesus started in the Jewish court, but it ended up in the highest court, which was the Roman court. The crime Jesus was accused of committing, it brought both courts together because it was a crime that broke the laws of both courts, just like kidnapping breaks the laws of both courts. That was the way it was during the time of Jesus, but the agencies were different. During the time of Jesus there were only two criminal jurisdictions. They were the Roman jurisdiction and the Jewish jurisdiction. Just like today, both jurisdictions had their own court. The Roman government had their own court and the Jewish leaders had their own court. Both jurisdictions even had their own law enforcement believe it or not, just like it is today. The Roman government had their Roman soldier and the Jewish leaders had their Temple guards. Both, the Roman soldiers and the Temple guards had the authority to arrest anyone who was convicted of a crime or who they thought committed a crime. So that goes to show you that the same law enforcement system that existed during the time of Jesus was the same system of law enforcement system that existed today, it’s just in different times. Whatever punishment each law enforcement agency gives to a person who has committed a crime, the other law enforcement agencies will accept. Today, each law enforcement agency has a different way to punish a person for the crime they committed. In the same way, the Roman government had a different way of punishing a person who committed a crime than the Jewish leaders did. The Roman government had the public to determine the fate of a person, which is called a jury today and the Jewish leaders would determine the fate of a person, which is called a bench trial today. See, the same system, but a different way of doing it. The more serious offenses that required execution as punishment was handled by the Roman government and the less serious offenses that didn’t require execution as punishment was handled by the Jewish council. That’s the way it is today: The more serious offenses are handle by either, the federal court or the county court and the less serious offenses are handled by the city court. The crime that Jesus was supposed to be guilty for is what is called today as a federal crime because the people thought that He identified Himself as a king because He said that He was the Son of God. Back during the time of Jesus, any person who the people thought was identifying themselves as a king that was the person who spoke against and made treat towards the Roman government or any government that was in power at the time. That was considered as a serious offense that was punishable by execution. When Jesus identified Himself as the Son of God and in the scriptures, it mention Jesus as being a king, the people thought Jesus was identifying Himself as a king that would take over the Roman Empire and that was considered as a serious offense, if it was committed by anyone during the time of Jesus. That was the reason why the Roman soldiers mocked Jesus after He was arrested. The more serious offenses were punishable by public execution just like executions are made public today. See, the same system, but a different way of doing it. During the time of Jesus, not everyone was executed by being nailed to a cross like many people in the church think today. There were many people during the time of Jesus who weren’t nail to a cross who committed serious crimes. The reason why the Roman nailed people to the cross was to use the people who were nailed to the cross as an example, so that particular crime wouldn’t be committed again by anyone. But as we know, Jesus didn’t commit a crime because He was an innocent man. The serious crimes that people were nailed to the cross for were crimes the Roman government was afraid of, if it was committed by a large number of people because it could cause the Roman government to lose power over the people. The two thieves that were on both sides of Jesus were convicted of stealing from the Roman Empire. Today, if there was a person who was smart enough to steal from the government and they continue to steal from the government for years, than they can bring the government to bankruptcy and that can cause the government to lose power. That was the same kind of crime the two thieves were convicted of that who were on the both sides of Jesus. The crime that Jesus was convicted for and the crime the two thieves were convicted for was a crime that the Roman government didn’t want people to commit, so they had to make an example out of Jesus and the two thieves, so people would be afraid to commit the same kind of crimes, but like I said, we know that Jesus didn’t commit a crime because He was an innocent man. When a person was executed by being nailed to a cross what the Roman soldiers would do is they would actually nail a person to the cross just like if you would nail two pieces of wood together. Then they would grab the cross from each end at the top of the cross and they would lift the cross until the cross was standing straight up, than they would put the bottom of the cross in a hold that was dug specifically for that particular cross. When the Roman soldiers would lift the cross from the ground, which is the earth; that was when the cross was lift from the earth, and I, if I be lifted up from the earth. There are many people in the church who think that what Jesus said, when He said, and I, if I be lifted up from the earth; they think that Jesus was talking about when He would ascend back to the Father in which some people were able to witness and see with their own eyes, but that isn’t what that scripture means. What Jesus said had to do with the way the cross was lifted up from the ground by the Roman soldiers. This is proof. Go to the next verse. The next verse says in the English version, Jesus was talking about the way He would be put to death. In the verse, Jesus didn’t say, the way He would go back to the Father, He talked about the way He would be put to death. After the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus many people came to believe that He was the Son of God, even the people who didn’t believe that He was the Son of God before He was crucified and raised. After the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus, all the people in Jerusalem and in the surrounding areas, especially, Jerusalem they believed without having doubt that Jesus was the Son of God, will draw all men unto me. This is another part of the scripture that a lot of people misunderstand. They think that statement applies to everyone who would come on this earth after the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus and the statement doesn’t apply to everyone, just the people who were here on this earth who didn’t believe that Jesus was the Son of God, when He was here on this earth.
  7. Changing Water into Wine I thank God the Father and the Lord Jesus for allowing me to recognize that I am a sinner rather than a saint. The scripture I will explain is in John the 2nd chapter and the 9th verse. In the 9th verse it says, When the ruler of the feast had tasted the water that was made wine, and knew not whence it was: (but the servants which drew the water knew;) the governor of the feast called the bridegroom. This miracle Jesus performed was the first miracle of His ministry. Most of the miracles Jesus performed were designed to influence people to believe that He was the Son of God. There were a few miracles that had a spiritual meaning, which was the reason why they were performed, but most of the miracles Jesus performed were designed to influence people to believe that He was the Son of God. Everything the Father had Jesus to do; it wasn’t done for nothing. There was always a reason why the Father had Jesus to do all the things He did. Jesus was a man who was admired by everyone. Jesus came from a worldly family that didn’t have anything. Matter of fact, the family that Jesus was raised in was a poor family because remember what Jesus was place in after His birth, which was a manger and a manger is a trough in a barn from which horses or cattle eat. After the birth of Jesus, Jesus was placed in a manger, which was inside a barn, so Jesus nursery environment was a barn rather than a house. People, who lived that way during the time of Jesus and even today, are poor people and Joseph and Mary were the poor people of God. Joseph and Mary were the people of God who were considered as poor. During the time of Jesus and even today, there were poor people of God and there were rich people of God. Many of the regular people of God were poor and the people of God who had a certain position in the Jewish belief were people who were either rich or middle class. Most of those kinds of people were Jewish leaders and if they were not Jewish leaders they had a very close connection with the Jewish leaders, which gave them a financial advancement. So the people of God who were very close to the Jewish leaders, they had favor among those who either were rich or of the middle class. The same financial situation that went on in the Jewish belief is the same financial situation that goes on in the church today. The people in the church today who have something financially are the preachers and the people who are close to the preachers. Most of the people who are under them are people who are either poor or close to poor. The poor people in the church today and during the time of Jesus were people who were ignored by the people who had something financially. During the time of Jesus, the people who had something financially, they would ignore and pay no attention to the people who were considered as poor. The reason why Jesus, Joseph and Mary weren’t ignored by the people who had something financially was because of the things that Jesus was able to do during the time that He was on this earth up until this point of the scripture. The miracle that Jesus performed at the wedding was His first miracle, but He had done many amazing things in front of people before He was given power from the Holy Spirit to perform miracles. People have always admired and have always showed a person favor when they have something special that others don’t have. Abraham for an example, had favor from everyone in the land of Canaan who knew him. For that reason, Abraham could get anything free he wanted from anyone in the land of Canaan during his time. People always gave things to Abraham for free. That was the way it was for Jesus, Joseph and Mary during this time in Jesus life. The wedding that they all were invited to was a wedding of a group of people who had something financially because a wedding back during the time of Jesus and even a wedding today were there are a large number of people who are invited; the people who are getting married they come from a family who had something financially because the family were the people who paid for the wedding just like families do today for a wedding and the family members who pay for the wedding is most likely the parents and the was the family members who paid for a wedding back during the time of Jesus. Back during the time of Jesus and even today, the people who are invited to a wedding of people who have something financially are people who have something financially as well. A wedding environment of the sore don’t have people who are poor as guest. Matter of fact, people who are poor are people who wouldn’t be invited or welcome to that kind of wedding event. Jesus, Joseph and Mary were the only poor people who were actual guest of the wedding. So Jesus, Joseph and Mary were people who were not only invited to the wedding, but they were invited as the friends of the people who were getting married and their immediate family as well. Like I said, Jesus, Joseph and Mary were invited because of the favoritism and respect Jesus received from the other people because of the amazing things He did in front of people before He had introduced Himself as the Son of God. If Jesus didn’t do anything amazing before He had introduced Himself as the Son of God, than Mary wouldn’t have approached Jesus the way she did when the people had ran out of wine. Mary had approached Jesus as though she had complete control of Jesus and no one would approach another person like that if there wasn’t something special about the person that other people knew about. Is just like if a parent has a kid that has a special talent and they want some kind of control over their kid so they can look good in front of those who are familiar with the kid. That the reason why Mary approached Jesus the way she did about the lack of wine. Jesus as we know accepted the invitation. As Jesus was there at the wedding, He performed His first miracle, but this miracle had a spiritual meaning to it, which was the reason why Jesus performed the miracle in the first place. The miracle wasn’t designed to influence the people who were at the wedding to believe that Jesus was the Son of God. The miracle was design to make a point to the people who were at the wedding. The point was completely related to the relationship between poor people and rich people. In an event, like a wedding or in any event where there are a large number of people gathered together for a certain celebration; water is the beverage that many people at an event will ignore and don’t have an interest in. People will have the desire for other beverages before they have a desire for water. Some events don’t offer water to the people because they know that water is the last thing that people will drink at an event of celebration. Because water is one of the beverages that people will ignore and won’t have an interest in at a special event like a wedding that was the reason why there wasn’t any water at the wedding event that Jesus, Joseph and Mary were invited to. That was the reason why Jesus told the servants to fill the six water jars up with water because water was a beverage that wasn’t at the wedding. The miracle that Jesus performed had a spiritual meaning to it that relates to the relationship that happens between the poor and the rich. Through the miracle that Jesus performed, Jesus was letting the people know that there will be a time when poor people will be respected by rich people. The water represented poor people and the wine represented rich people. Just as water was a beverage that was ignored by people and people didn’t have an interest in water at an event like a wedding, in the same way, rich people during the time of Jesus ignored and didn’t have an interest in people who were poor. The reason why Jesus chose that kind of event to perform the miracle He did was because the people who were at the wedding were people who ignored and didn’t have an interest in poor people. When Jesus changed the water into wine that represented that one day poor people were the people who would be changed by the Holy Spirit from being people who were sinners to people who would be children of God. After poor people were converted than they would be people who would draw the attention of people who had ignore them in the past. After the conversion of poor people; poor people would be the people who the rich people would pay attention to and admire. For that reason, rich people would have a strong desire to be around the people who they once rejected. Matter of fact, Jesus was prophesying through the miracle that He had performed at the wedding, that poor people would be the only people that rich people would be interested in because of the things that poor people would be able to do through the power of the Holy Spirit because of their conversion. During the time of Jesus and after the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus, Jesus spent a lot of time with poor people. Poor people were the only people who Jesus would spend most of His time with. Jesus didn’t have favorites. Jesus didn’t favor the poor people over the rich people, but it was the poor people who would humble themselves and receive Jesus and His teaching and the rich people were the people who rejected Jesus and His teachings. That’s the reason why Jesus focused His attention on poor people rather than rich people. Poor people were the first people to receive the Holy Spirit after Jesus went back to the Father, just like poor people were the first people that Jesus dealt with when He was on this earth in the flesh. Poor people were water in society during the time of Jesus and rich people were wine in society during the time of Jesus. So the water turning into wine was the conversation the Holy Spirit would do in the hearts of the people who were poor. The water that Jesus changed into wine was better than the wine in which the people had already drank. When the water was better than the wine the people had already drank that represented that the poor people who would be converted from a sinner to a saint, they would offer something much better than what the holy prophets offered to the people in the Old Testament days. The holy prophets in the Old Testament days offered the Word of God to the people, just like the people did in the New Testament days that were sent by God to the people of God, just like the holy prophets were sent by God to the people of God. The holy prophets preached the gospel of God just like the people who preached the gospel of God in the New Testament days, but the gospel was different. The gospel the holy prophets offered to the people was the gospel about the Kingdom of God and the gospel the New Testament saints preached was the gospel of Jesus. Both gospels offered salvation and sanctification to the people who were willing to obey the gospel they heard. The gospel the holy prophets preached offered salvation and sanctification to the people who were willing to obey it, but it didn’t give them complete power just like Jesus has complete power. The gospel the New Testament saints preached offered salvation and sanctification to the people who were willing to obey it, but it also offered complete power to the people who obeyed it. That was the reason why the gospel that the New Testament saints preached offered something much better and greater than the gospel the holy prophets preached in the Old Testament days. The only reason why the saints in the New Testament days were able to preach a gospel that was much better and greater than the gospel the holy prophets preached was because of crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus. So for that reason, Jesus was the actual wine that was saved for last, which was the better wine, just like the water that Jesus changed into wine was the better wine than the wine in which the people at the wedding had already drank. Out of all the holy prophets that the Father sent here on this earth, Jesus was the holy person that offered something much better than what the Old Testament prophets offered and because of Jesus, the New Testament saints were also able to offer a gospel that was much better than the gospel the holy prophets offered to the people in the Old Testament days. The gospel of Jesus was eventually received and accepted by the rich people after it was received by poor people, which was the reason why the water that Jesus had turned into wine was offered to the rich people at the wedding that Jesus had attended. Sometime after the crucifixion and resurrection of Jesus, both groups of people receive and accepted the gospel of Jesus, the rich people and the poor people.
  8. How do I greet people? I am new to this site.
  9. God divided the Light from the Darkness I thank God the Father and the LORD Jesus for allowing me to know for a fact that the both of Them are real. I thank Them both for the wonderful blessings I have received from Them. The scriptures I will explain through the revelation of the Holy Spirit are two verses in Genesis and the two verses are from the first chapter of Genesis. The 1st chapter and the 3rd, 4th ,5th ,18th and the 19th verses. The 3rd verse says, And God said , Let there be light: and there was light. The 4th verse says, And God saw the light, that it was good: and God divided the light from the darkness. The 5th verse says, And God called the light Day, and the darkness He called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day. The 18th verse says, And to rule over the day and over the night, and to divide the light from the darkness: and God saw that it was good. The 19th verse says, And the evening and the morning were the fourth day. I said in one of my writings that the Holy Spirit has to give us revelation about God’s Holy Word. It is through the Holy Spirit that we are able to understand God’s Holy Word. Some of the scriptures in God’s Holy Word sounds like they are saying the same thing and some of the scriptures sound like that they are saying that the same things happened on two different days. It will seem that way if the Holy Spirit doesn’t give us an understanding about God’s Holy Word. The Holy Bible doesn’t contradict what it says, but the Holy Bible may sound like it is contradicting if the Holy Spirit doesn’t reveal God’s Holy Word to us. Matter of fact, it is extremely hard to understand the Holy Bible without the teachings of the Holy Spirit. The Holy Bible is the only book that has ever come here on this earth that was completely right concerning everything the Holy Bible says because God doesn’t lie and everything that is in the Holy Bible comes from God. There are some scripture in the Holy Bible that may sound like they are saying that the same things happened on two different days. So in other words, there are some scripture that may sound like the sun was created on two different days. There are two scriptures in the scriptures that I have chosen that sounds like they are saying that the sun was created on two different days, but the sun was created on the first day and the first day only. But if we would read the third verse and then read the eighteenth verse is sounds like the sun was created on the first day and then created again on the fourth day, but it is not the way it sounds. That’s why I say and you will agree that the Holy Spirit is the person who has to teach us God’s Holy Word. If the Holy Spirit doesn’t teach a person about God’s Holy Word than the Holy Bible may sound wrong or may sound like someone made a mistake, but in God’s Holy Word there are no mistakes. God know what He is doing when He does something and because of that, He does everything in a perfect way so there are no mistakes in the things He does and creates; even the way God words things in which He may use a man to write down what He says. If God uses a man to write down what He says than everything that man said was correct because he only wrote down what God had told him to write down. Moses was the holy prophet who wrote all the words that were written in the first five books in the Old Testament and because Moses believed completely what God had told him is the reason why God revealed to Moses the wonderful things that Moses wrote down in the five books in the Old Testament. Moses believed God completely and he didn’t questions anything God told him and that is what we have to do to receive from God revelation about His Holy Word. Because everything in God’s Holy Word is correct all the scriptures agree with one another. So there are no scriptures that don’t support one another. All of the scriptures in God’s Holy Word support one another and the Holy Spirit will show us how the scriptures are connected to each other. When the Holy Spirit does that than God’s Holy Word will make complete sense rather than sounding either contradicting or sounds like something was repeated in two different occasions. Verses three and eighteen are two of those verses that sound like the same thing happened on two different days, but the two verses don’t mean the way they sound. If you notice in the third verse it sounds like it says the same thing that verse eighteen says and it sounds like the two verses mean the same thing, but they don’t say the same thing and they don’t mean the same thing. Through the Holy Spirit I will try to get you to see how the two verses are saying and meaning something different. The part of the two verses that sounds like they are saying and meaning the same thing is when the two verses say, divided the light from the darkness. This statement is said in the third verse and it is also said in the eighteenth verse, which were two different days. The third verse is the first day and the eighteenth verse is the fourth day. Because this statement is mentioned in two different days it sounds like God created the sun on two different days. It sounds like God created the sun on the first day and then He created the sun again on the fourth day because the same statement is mentioned in two different verses. Now this is when the Holy Spirit has to teach us about God’s Holy Word, but not just about this scripture, but about all of the scriptures I just worded it that way because these two verses are hard to figure out why the same statement is mentioned in two different verses. Two different things happened on those two different days. God created the sun on one day and on day only and that day was the first day. God divided the light from the darkness on the first day completely different from the way He divided the light from the darkness on the fourth day, but it sounds like God did the same thing on both days, but He didn’t. On the first day God divided the light from the darkness when He caused the sun to shine than He caused the sun to go out. It’s just like if you would turn a light off in a room by using the light switch. The light will turn on when you motion the light switch and the light will turn off when you motion the light switch again. This is similar to how God divided the light from the darkness on the first day. So God caused the sun to shine than He caused the sun to go out. When the sun shined it was day and when the sun went out it was night. Now on the fourth day God did something completely different to divide the light from the darkness on the fourth day. What God did to divide the light from the darkness on the fourth day was He caused the earth to rotate on its axis and not only did God caused the earth to rotate on its axis, but God caused the earth to travel around the sun. Before the fourth day the earth stood still. In other words, the earth didn’t move at all before the fourth day. After the fourth day the sun’s system of shining is just like it is today, it constantly shines without going out. Now can you see the difference between the two days concerning the same statement? On the fourth day God also created the moon and the moon was the light at night. Without the Holy Spirit, those two verses sounds like the same thing happened on two different days, which was the creation of the sun, but now through the Holy Spirit you know the different between what happened on those two different days.
  10. Jerusalem I thank God the Father and the Lord Jesus for being so good to me. I thank the both of Them for allowing me to know as much as I do about Them. I thank the both of Them for keeping safe from all harm and danger. The scriptures I will explain through the Holy Spirit are from Matthew the 21st chapter beginning at the 33rd verse and ending at the 39th verse. I will not type the scriptures I am writing about in this writing like I normally do; so if you can get a Holy Bible and follow along that would be the best thing to do or unless you know the scriptures by memory. In the gospels, Jesus said many things to the people that were around Him at a particular time in His ministry. When people were around Jesus He always said something to them that related to the Kingdom of God. Jesus also said many things to the people that allowed for them to know how God thought about certain groups of people that were on this earth at that particular time. The Jewish leaders were not humble people. They thought they were accepted by God before they heard from Jesus what God thought about them. But the Jewish leaders were so sure of themselves that even after Jesus has told them how God thought about them, they still didn’t believe what Jesus said. There are people today in the church who don’t want to accept the fact that God is not pleased with them and the reason why they think that way is because they don’t really know God like they think. There are some people in the church who should know God more than they do, but God had allowed for that information to be taking away from them by the devil, which is something the devil came do if the person doesn’t accepted the things that God wants them to believe. If a person doesn’t want to accept what God wants them to believe, than God will allow for the devil to come and steal the information that God had given them about Him. There were many Jewish leaders that understood a lot of things that Jesus preached because the things that Jesus preached were already in the Law and the Old Testament. The Jewish leaders that understood most of what Jesus was preaching were the Scribes. They were the wisest of the Jewish leaders and the reason why they were the wisest is because they spent more time in the Law and the Old Testament than all of the other Jewish leaders. Jesus was approached constantly by the Jewish leaders. The Scribes study both, the Law of Moses and the Old Testament. The Pharisees and Sadducees studied just the Law of Moses. The Jewish leaders were negative and evil people who claimed to be children of God. They were so sure of themselves that they gave themselves a title they didn’t deserve. Not only did they give themselves the title as being children of God, but the other Jewish people gave them that title as well because they thought they were actually children of God because of the faithfulness they seemed to have towards God. The other Jewish people were deceived about the Jewish Leaders because they didn’t understand God like they thought, but the Jewish leaders should have understood God more than they did because they had a decent understanding of the Law and the Old testament, which they received from God because they were God’s people, but they didn’t in His Son Jesus and that was where they made their mistake. For many years, before Jesus came here on this earth in the flesh, God had given His people over to the Jewish leaders so they could guide His people to Him and also to keep them on the correct path to God. God had given the Jewish leaders that task when He allowed for a system to developed in which He had expect for the Jewish leaders to be in charge of, and let it out to husbandmen. The first place God’s people were located was Jerusalem. Jerusalem was a city that was specifically created by God for His people and God had given King David instructions on how to build the city, which later became holy because of the people that lived there in the time of King David and the people that lived there, they were holy just like God because of King David. So Jerusalem was around ever since the time of King David. After the death of Kind David, the people began to stray away from God, but not all of them. God was able to keep them on the right path through the holy prophets that He would send to them. The purpose of the holy prophets that God sent to Jerusalem was for them to keep the people of God on the correct path they were on before King David died. Like I said, King David was the holy man who built Jerusalem at God’s request. King David built Jerusalem exactly the way that God had told him to build Jerusalem. God told King David, that after he created the city of Jerusalem, he was to build a wall around the entire city. The people in Jerusalem were always supposed to be ready for the coming of God by being holy for God and they were supposed to have a celebration for their holy accomplishment, there was a certain householder, which planet a vineyard, and hedged it round about, and digged a winepress in it, and built a tower. The householder was God. The vineyard was Jerusalem. The hedged it round about was the wall around Jerusalem. The winepress was the celebration the people of God were supposed to have because of their holy accomplishment. The tower was their awareness that comes to a person when they are holy like God and through their awareness they are able to see when God comes because they recognized God. During the time of King David and much before the time of King David, there was a system that was created by God that was design to be over looked by the people that were chosen by God to be the leaders of the people of God and this system was created by Moses and the system consisted of the holy priest who would make sure that the people of God was on the correct path and to make sure they stay on the correct path, and let it out to husbandmen. Sometime God will do something through an Angel and when the Angel is done, the Angel will go back to God’s Kingdom, and went into a far country. There were many other leaders that came after Moses who God had put in the same positions as the holy priests that Moses had appointed at the commandment of God. But the only difference is there were many things that were changed from the original system of leadership of the holy priests. One of the groups of people that came long after the time of Moses, who were put into the same position as the holy priests during the time of Moses, were the Jewish leaders during the time of Jesus and they were the Scribes, the Chief Priest, the Pharisees, the Sadducees and there were also some others. Those kinds of leaders were here on this earth during the time of Jesus and about 2000 year before Jesus, which would be 2000 B.C. These Jewish leaders had the same position and task as the Hebrew leaders back during the time of Moses, when the system of holy leadership for the people of God was created. After the death of King David, God started sending holy prophets only to Jerusalem, to put the people of God on the correct path because many of them went off the correct path after King David died. The holy prophets only went to Jerusalem because for hundreds of years, the only place where the people of God lived was in Jerusalem, but during the time of Jesus they were all over the land of Canaan. After the death of King David, God would constantly send holy prophets to Jerusalem. The reason why God sent the holy prophets to Jerusalem was to get the people of God on the correct path and not only that, but God thought the people should be holy by now, and when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent His servants to the husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits of it. The servants were the holy prophets of God and the husbandmen were the Jewish leaders. The holy prophets of God were always mistreated and insulted by the people they went to check on for God, but then it got to the point when they were beaten and killed and the people who did that were the same kind of Jewish leaders that Jesus had confrontations with when He was here on this earth in the flesh, and the husbandmen took His servants, and beat one, and killed another, and stoned another. This kind of treatment towards the holy prophets started when the religious leaders, became the same Jewish leaders, that Jesus had confrontations with. They were the religious leaders that beat and killed the holy prophets of God when the holy prophets would confront them, just like Jesus did when He was here on this earth in the flesh. When God first began sending holy prophets to Jerusalem, He only sent a few of them and they were Elijah, Elisha and Isaiah. Because the people of God didn’t listen to them, God sent more holy prophets in number than, He did during the time of Elijah, Elisha and Isaiah, again He sent other servants more than the first: and they did unto them like wise. Those holy prophets were Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Hosea, Joel, Amos, Obadiah, Micah, Zephaniah, Haggai, Zechariah, Malachi and there were many others. So when Jesus came here on earth in the flesh, the people who were religious leaders about 2000 years before Jesus came here on this earth in the flesh, they were the same religious leaders that Jesus came in contact with on a regular basis. It was there ancestor who had beaten and killed the holy prophets that were sent to Jerusalem before Jesus came here on this earth in the flesh. After God had sent many of His holy prophets to Jerusalem, God had decided that it was time to send His Son, but last of all He sent unto them His Son, saying, They will reverence my Son. When Jesus was here on this earth in the flesh, many people admired Him because of the many wonderful miracles He was able to do through the Holy Spirit. Even the people who didn’t like Him and didn’t believe in who He was, they admired Him and they always wanted to be around Him. Before Jesus came here on this earth in the flesh, the Jewish leaders had a lot of power and control over the people. The other Jews would do what they said and not only the Jews, but other people who weren’t Jews, did what they said, but when Jesus began His ministry, He took just about all the power away that the Jewish leaders had over the people and the Jewish leaders didn’t like that and that was one of the reasons why they had Jesus killed and I would be confident to say, it was the main reason why they had Jesus killed. The Jewish leaders thought if they would kill Jesus than they would get back the power they once had over the people, but when the husbandmen saw the Son, they said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let kill Him, and let us seize on His inheritance. When the Jewish leaders became successful in having Jesus killed by the Roman authorities, they had Him lead outside of Jerusalem to a place called Calvary where He was crucified to death, and they caught him, and cast Him out of the vineyard, and slew Him.
