#TheChurch “For Every 12 Associates, There Is 1 Assigned Judas”

27 Aug The Church Mandate

So they left the mountain called Olives and returned to Jerusalem. It was a little over half a mile. They went to the upper room they had been using as a meeting place: Peter, John, James, Andrew, Philip, Thomas, Bartholomew, Matthew, James, son of Alphaeus, Simon the Zealot, Judas, son of James.

They agreed they were in this for good, completely together in prayer, the women included. Also Jesus’ mother, Mary, and his brothers. During this time, Peter stood up in the company—there were about 120 of them in the room at the time—and said, “Friends, long ago the Holy Spirit spoke through David regarding Judas, who became the guide to those who arrested Jesus. That Scripture had to be fulfilled, and now has been. Judas was one of us and had his assigned place in this ministry.

“As you know, he took the evil bribe money and bought a small farm. There he came to a bad end, rupturing his belly and spilling his guts. Everybody in Jerusalem knows this by now; they call the place Murder Meadow. It’s exactly what we find written in the Psalms: Let his farm become haunted So no one can ever live there. “And also what was written later: Let someone else take over his post.

“Judas must now be replaced. The replacement must come from the company of men who stayed together with us from the time Jesus was baptized by John up to the day of his ascension, designated along with us as a witness to his resurrection.” (‭Acts‬ ‭1‬:‭12-22‬ MSG)

Patriarch Bartholomew: No to Homosexual Marriage

10 Sep Ancient Faith

Patriarch Bartholomew: No to Homosexual Marriage

September 9, 2013 10:27 PM

 

His All Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew

His All Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew

Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew expressed in unequivocal terms that the Orthodox Church cannot sanction same-sex marriage. This is bound to make some of the Orthodox Progressives squirm because there is no room for doubt, no artificial distinction between Church and society where the moral teaching applies to the former but not the latter, where there is a different ontology implied for those within the Church and those outside of her. 

This statement was delivered at a homily in Estonia but also posted on the Patriarchal website so it carries the imprimatur of the Patriarchal office. Note Pat. Bartholomew’s reliance on the book of Romans where the Apostle Paul describes Roman culture at the time. Again, this is significant because the Patriarch’s reference to St. Paul’s admonition shows the teaching applies not only to the Church, but to society as well. The erroneous idea that the Orthodox Church has nothing to say to the larger culture about homosexual marriage has been repudiated Pat. Kyrill in the past and now by Pat. Bartholomew.

The condemnation, a strong word but borrowed from the text below is quite clear:

To our Lord Jesus Christ, who blessed families through the Mystery of Marriage at Cana of Galilee and changed water into wine, that is, into joy and feasting, and to His Body, the Orthodox Church, the partnering of the same sex is unknown and condemned, and they condemn the contemporary invention of “mutual cohabitation”, which is the result of sin and not the law of joy

Note too the Ecumenical Patriarch’s implicit reasoning that homosexual marriage threatens the family:

The Church, my beloved parents and children, and subsequently the family, which consists lawfully and by the command of God of men and women, and the children acquired, is not a foundation or association or a simple organization, but a Body, as it is wonderfully depicted by the Apostle Paul. And this parallelism is accurate and true. Church and marriage. Husband and wife. Body and its members.

This community, signified in the Mysteries and in the obedience of Faith, both in the Church and in the family, is sanctified and mystagogued through the Mystery of Marriage, which, according to the Fathers, is a mystery of co-creation, and the ontological link of love with the Head of the Body, to ensure health and life, which is salvation and sanctification.

The language is a bit labored as is often the case with missives from Constantinople where too many ideas are packed into too few sentences. Nevertheless, the meaning is clear and the arguments that the Church has no interest in the broader health of the culture and should remain silent about the critical moral issues of the day should be put to rest.

STORY HIGHLIGHTS
  • King almost didn’t talk about “the dream”
  • Women had to fight to be included on the speakers’ platform
  • Having Hollywood stars attend helped ease Kennedy fears about march

Watch CNN TV for special coverage throughout the day, including live coverage of President Obama’s address at the Lincoln Memorial, marking the 50th anniversary of the March on Washington and Martin Luther King Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech.

(CNN) — “I have a dream this afternoon that my four little children will not come up in the same young days that I came up within, but they will be judged on the basis of the content of their character, not the color of their skin.”

The Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. spoke these words in 1963, but this was not the speech that would go down as one of the most important addresses in U.S. history.

King spoke these words in Detroit, two months before he addressed a crowd of nearly 250,000 with his resounding “I Have a Dream” speech at the March on Washington for Freedom and Jobs on August 28, 1963.

Several of King’s staff members actually tried to discourage him from using the same “I have a dream” refrain again.

March on Washington 50 years later

As we all know, that didn’t happen. But how this pivotal speech was crafted is just one of several interesting facts about what is one of the most important moments in the 20th century in the United States:

MLK’s speech almost didn’t include “I have a dream”

King had suggested the familiar “Dream” speech that he used in Detroit for his address at the march, but his adviser the Rev. Wyatt Tee Walker called it “hackneyed and trite.”

So, the night before the march, King’s staff crafted a new speech, “Normalcy Never Again.”

King was the last speaker to address the crowd in Washington that day. As he spoke, gospel singer Mahalia Jackson called out to King, “Tell ’em about the dream, Martin.”

Then he paused and said, “I still have a dream.”

Walker was out in the audience. “I said, ‘Oh, s—.'”

“I thought it was a mistake to use that,” Walker recalled. “But how wrong I was. It had never been used on a world stage before.”

The rest, of course, is history.

Egyptian court sentences Christian family to 15 years for converting from Islam | Fox News

18 Jan

The 15-year prison sentence given to a woman and her seven children by an Egyptian court for converting to Christianity is a sign of things to come, according to alarmed human rights advocates who say the nation’s Islamist government is bad news for Christians in the North African country.A criminal court in the central Egyptian city of Beni Suef meted out the shocking sentence last week, according to the Arabic-language Egyptian paper Al-Masry Al-Youm. Nadia Mohamed Ali, who was raised a Christian, converted to Islam when she married Mohamed Abdel-Wahhab Mustafa, a Muslim, 23 years ago. He later died, and his widow planned to convert her family back to Christianity in order to obtain an inheritance from her family. She sought the help of others in the registration office to process new identity cards between 2004 and 2006. When the conversion came to light under the new regime, Nadia, her children and even the clerks who processed the identity cards were all sentenced to prison.

CHURCH – Preparing For The Flight!

1 Dec

 

Mark 13:18 (King James Version)
18 And pray ye that YOUR FLIGHT be not in the winter.
Mark 13:19-37 (MSG)
19 “These are going to be hard days—nothing like it from the time God made the world right up to the present. And there’ll be nothing like it again.
20 If he let the days of trouble run their course, nobody would make it. But because of God’s chosen people, those he personally chose, he has already intervened.
21 “If anyone tries to flag you down, calling out, ‘Here’s the Messiah!’ or points, ‘There he is!’ don’t fall for it.
22 Fake Messiahs and lying preachers are going to pop up everywhere. Their impressive credentials and dazzling performances will pull the wool over the eyes of even those who ought to know better.
23 So watch out. I’ve given you fair warning.
24 “Following those hard times, Sun will fade out, moon cloud over,
25 Stars fall out of the sky, cosmic powers tremble.
26 “And then they’ll see the Son of Man enter in grand style, his Arrival filling the sky—no one will miss it!
27 He’ll dispatch the angels; they will pull in the chosen from the four winds, from pole to pole.
28 “Take a lesson from the fig tree. From the moment you notice its buds form, the merest hint of green, you know summer’s just around the corner.
29 And so it is with you. When you see all these things, you know he is at the door.
30 Don’t take this lightly. I’m not just saying this for some future generation, but for this one, too—these things will happen.
31 Sky and earth will wear out; my words won’t wear out.
32 “But the exact day and hour? No one knows that, not even heaven’s angels, not even the Son. Only the Father.
33 So keep a sharp lookout, for you don’t know the timetable.
34 It’s like a man who takes a trip, leaving home and putting his servants in charge, each assigned a task, and commanding the gatekeeper to stand watch.
35 So, stay at your post, watching. You have no idea when the homeowner is returning, whether evening, midnight, cockcrow, or morning.
36 You don’t want him showing up unannounced, with you asleep on the job.
37 I say it to you, and I’m saying it to all: Stay at your post. Keep watch.”

We me must urgently prepare ourselves for what is coming next. We have one last battle to fight, one more mountain to climb, one last giant to kill, you have one more blow to strike for the Kingdom. You have to know YOUR timing in The Lord’s Kingdom. God has mandated an “ECCLESIASTIC TRANSFORMATION”,  TRANSFORMED by the RENEWING of our minds’. I have painfully come to realize that my time has run out, my season of “Destiny” has come to war my final predetermined warfare for UNIFICATION, it was what I was created for, to raise an Army of Warriors from the ashes of devastation, and prepare them for their season of DOMINION, the Succession of Holy Apostles of The Ancient Faith, I also know that once our destiny has been fulfilled, The Lord takes us home, so today I prepare for the warfare of the final subjugation and conquest, so that my FLIGHT can be right . I pray Lord that you will throw gasoline on my Holy Ghost Fire, and empower me for this season of conquest…and then I can sit back relax and take my flight. “WE Will Fight and We Will WIN in the name of JESUS OUR KING!…AMEN…++I AM
