Rising Food Costs, Directly Linked to the Increased Use and Demand of Corn Ethanol

God is good, all the time, He put a song of praise in this heart of mine!

I feel like singing that song, but I got to be quite because my sister is trying to get to sleep in the room next to me. You ever have that feeling, where you just want to belt out a worship song? I get that all the time.

Ya, so I am excited, I have discovered another way to express myself over the Internet. Podcasting. I am sure that everyone knows what that is, but recently I took a little bit of time to start my own personal podcast. You can find it at: I created my first message the other day and already my profile shows 38 downloads (though I am not to sure how many where fully downloaded). Honestly, I just felt a need was there for someone to show that you can actually achieve something positive in Newark, NJ. This city gets a lot of bad publicity, but I have lived and worked in this city for over 6 years, and I am greatly blessed. I am a very blessed person and yes, I live, and enjoy living, in Newark, NJ. Anyway, I wanted to just write something real quick. All you lovely people who read this post, have a blessed day!

By the way, Sarah and I leave for Hawaii Sunday morning. Wow! I can hardly wait! I suppose the best part is that our sister Julia (the one getting married in Hawaii) asked if I could officiate their wedding. I think that I am more excited about that, then going to Hawaii. I wish I had a working camera/ camcorder, but I might go crazy (in a not necessarily bad, but more annoying kind of a way) with that while I am there. I am sure my sister Sarah, who is going with me, will take plenty of pictures for me though. I guess you could say that it runs in the family, even though really I am more of a video recording/ movie making type of a guy...

I Can't Believe that Facebook Disable My Account!

Do you know how that makes me feel? Facebook disabling my account has made me feel the same way I feel when my bank charges me $32 overdraft fees for accidentally mismanaging my bank account. It makes me want to scream, "BLOODY MURDER!" Hopefully they will smarten up and heal my account. All I did was send out a whole bunch of friend requests to those in the Newark network, with Christianity as their religious view. I suppose I should have heeded to their warning message to slow down, or I would hit a block, but I did not think they would take it this far and disable my account. Just breath, right?

A Spirit of Prophecy crying from the Inner-city

I am here all alone, but not fully because God is always with me. There are a couple of questions I consistently find myself asking the Lord. One of them is: Who has the Lord chosen to be my wife? I know that this is kind of strange that I would write about this, perhaps just because I never do. I keep telling the Lord, "Whoever it is Lord, I am cool with that, just show me who she is."

For sure, this is one area of my life that I do not want to make a mistake. I was engaged for a little bit recently, but that seemed to just fall apart out of nowhere. It hurt for a moment, and I even blogged about it when it happened: Breaking Up is hard to Do

Who is she? Who is she Lord? You know I don't want to make a mistake in this area.

Beloved, take some time, take your time. Don't you know that waiting is the hardest part? Millions will see this post my beloved, but I have only created it just for the woman I have chosen to be your wife. That is why you are writing right now, that is why you are writing the words you are. You are writing the words for the woman I have created and designed to be your wife. Are you ready to handle her? If you aren't, then you never will be... You are ready my beloved, but it is not time yet. In ten days you will be off to Hawaii, and when you are there, you will see a miracle. This miracle is going to be heard of all around the world, and it will make the nations tremble. A sound will go forth from Hawaii, just as the sound you heard when the beer bottle—you just heard outside—hit the sidewalk. The sound will bounce off of its target, and it will not break. The sound that shall come forth from Hawaii, will not break, but it shall go forth to the ends of the earth. Now is the time of salvation: Many will say, "But Lord, did not we prophecy and do great works in your name?" But I shall say, "Depart from me ye workers of iniquity, for I never knew you..." I never knew you, I never knew you...

Beloved, crime rises in Newark, but I am closing the gate to keep the violence out. Do your part in building My kingdom, and I shall take care of Newark and anything else that concerns you...

You Are In a Season of Shift

I was studying this above prophecy given at our church a couple months back, stumbled upon the speakers words "You are in a season of shift" and am trying to figure out exactly what the words mean.

I just feel such a great prophetic anointing at the moment, but these words are just jumping out at me. It is mind boggling..

Pooky Pooh!

This morning at 6am prayer as we where finishing up, in a circle holding hands, we started to pray in tongues. I could not help but laugh as I remembered this YouTube video. It still makes me laugh every once in awhile. It just brings me so much joy thinking about it. Enjoy!

A Very Blessed and Talented Artist

The other day a very blessed and gifted artist sent me an invitation, on YouTube, to be friends and share videos. I was so blessed watching this video that what I really need to do at the moment is just post it.

Three Very Powerful Scriptures

Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord [is], there [is] liberty. 2 Corinthians 3:17

And it shall come to pass in that day, [that] his burden shall be taken away from off thy shoulder, and his yoke from off thy neck, and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing. Isaiah 10:27

If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed. John 8:36

Okay, finally! That took a minute to research where those scriptures actually where, but I got them Saturday night February 2, 2008, as I was worshiping the Lord with a group of friends. They fell on me so strongly, that I had to share them with the group. I wrote them down on a piece of paper, but just now decided to publish them. In fact I want to print them out for myself, but I thought also I would share the three verses with anyone who reads this, just as a special blessing.

I Am Having Fun Podcasting

I just wanted to write that I am having fun learning how to podcast efficiently. I have been looking for a good way to podcast the churches' messages, with pretty good success. However, this place which I have found most recently seems to be one of the best, for our needs. I have already posted a couple messages on this blog. The last two posts are podcasts of our church, from the new place. Enjoy!

To Live a Life Without Love is to Not Live at All

In 1 Corithians Chapter 13 we have the definition of TRUE love:

Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, and have not charity, I am become [as] sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal.

And though I have [the gift of] prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.

And though I bestow all my goods to feed [the poor], and though I give my body to be burned, and have not charity, it profiteth me nothing.

Charity suffereth long, [and] is kind; charity envieth not; charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,

Doth not behave itself unseemly, seeketh not her own, is not easily provoked, thinketh no evil;

Rejoiceth not in iniquity, but rejoiceth in the truth;

Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.

Charity never faileth: but whether [there be] prophecies, they shall fail; whether [there be] tongues, they shall cease; whether [there be] knowledge, it shall vanish away.

For we know in part, and we prophesy in part.

But when that which is perfect is come, then that which is in part shall be done away.

When I was a child, I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a child: but when I became a man, I put away childish things.

For now we see through a glass, darkly; but then face to face: now I know in part; but then shall I know even as also I am known.

And now abideth faith, hope, charity, these three; but the greatest of these [is] charity.

I just got this chapter as I was seeking the Lord for a word. The Lord actually gave me the word LOVE, but along with that word, He also gave me this chapter to show me exactly what it is. Love is powerful. Love moves mountains. Love changes the world. Without love, life is meaningless, life is pointless...

With love, life has meaning, life is bright...

There is no comparison. To live a life without love is to not live at all. But to live a life full of love, is to live a life of purpose, meaning and hope.

All Things Are Possible!!!

Hosanna in the Highest!!!

God is so good! You can't out give Him. Whatever you give to the Lord, He shall give back to as pure gold refined in fire.
