11 May Church Police Force Presbyterian Church Universal

Church Universal: Internal Church Police Force

An Alabama Presbyterian church may soon become the first in the nation to form its own police force, invested by the state with the rights of “regular” police.
Officials at Briarwood Presbyterian Church, which belongs to the smaller and more conservative of the nation’s two major branches of the denomination, say their church, with 4,100 congregants and a 2,000-student school, needs the protection of a church-run police force.
Hiring local police, as many congregations do, isn’t the best option for Briarwood, they say, because it often needs more officers than local departments can provide. They also cite as a cautionary tale the 2012 Sandy Hook massacre, in which a gunman fatally shot 20 first-graders and six staff members in a Connecticut public school.
“After the shooting at Sandy Hook and in the wake of similar assaults at churches and schools, Briarwood recognized the need to provide qualified first responders to coordinate with local law enforcement who so heroically and effectively serve their communities,” they said in a statement.
The state Senate voted 24-4 Tuesday to give Briarwood, located 10 miles south of downtown Birmingham, permission to hire its own police. The measure now goes to the House, and if it passes there as expected, it will go to Gov. Kay Ivey for her signature. Ivey, who was sworn in this week after the sudden resignation of Robert Bentley, did not immediately return calls Thursday about the Briarwood bill.

“The Militant Messenger” – A Prophetic, Definitive Confirmation

19 Nov The-Militant-Messenger-A-Revolutionary

“The Militant Messenger” By Bishop TD Jakes

Matthew 8:5-12… And when Jesus was entered into Capernaum, there came unto him a centurion, beseeching him, And saying, Lord, my servant lieth at home sick of the palsy, grievously tormented. And Jesus saith unto him, I will come and heal him. The centurion answered and said, Lord, I am not worthy that thou shouldest come under my roof:but speak the word only, and my servant shall be healed. For I am a man under authority, having soldiers under me:and I say to this man, Go, and he goeth; and to another, Come, and he cometh; and to my servant, Do this, and he doeth it. When Jesus heard it, he marvelled, and said to them that followed, Verily I say unto you, I have not found so great faith, no, not in Israel. And I say unto you, That many shall come from the east and west, and shall sit down with Abraham, and Isaac, and Jacob, in the kingdom of heaven. But the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness:there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth

  • I will remember your house in the time of your trouble!

  • If you take care of God’s house, God will take care of yours!

  • What he made happen for God, God now would make happen for Him!

  • The Centurion said you know they will attack you if you come in my house.

  • The contrast of Methodology

  • previously the leper was given a muted miracle through a touch

  • now the same God stands in the middle of the road and speaks a WORD

  • God has a moving WORD, He speaks it here and it goes out and reaches

  • The WORD is on the move! It will not return void

  • The WORD is on the way to your house right now!

  • It is moving!

  • The Bible says that Jesus marveled at his faith

  • only two times did he marvel, and neither persons were of the house of Israel

  • nether were a part of the Tradition of Church

  • He said I have not found a greater faith in the House of Israel

  • Sometimes when you have been around so long, you know too much to receive

  • when you take people for granted you cant appreciate who they are to you

  • YOU ARE THE MOST POTENT when you are APPRECIATED!

  • those who take for granted what they have been exposed to, are losing it

  • losing it to people who will appreciate you

  • He sent His WORD and it healed!

  • God said His Healing anointing is going out right now!

  • He is bringing alignment into your circumstances

  • the whole text is military

  • He Is A Militant Messenger!

Are you a MAKER or a TAKER? » JP LOGAN | World

Are You a Maker or a Taker?

These 12 characteristics determine whether you’ll be a success or a failure.

There’s been a lot of talk over the past few years about the difference between “makers” and “takers.” While I don’t agree with the standard political definition of the two groups, I do think that there’s some validity to the basic idea.

Here’s how I see the difference:

1. Confidence. Makers know they’ll succeed and don’t care whether others believe in them or not. Takers draw upon others for their motivation and constantly worry what others will think.

2. Commitment. Makers find the resources within themselves to run the race and turn roadblocks into speed bumps. Takers look to their institutions and their families to protect them from the risks of failure.

3. Sacrifice. Makers choose to do things that they’d rather avoid if they’re necessary to achieve a goal. Takers have a multitude of excuses why they sat on their duffs when something needed doing.

4. Selectivity. Makers constantly assess what they see and experience, focusing on what’s useful and filtering out what’s useless. Takers immerse themselves in the mindless distraction of broadcast media.

5. Awareness. Makers focus upon their own behavior and how it impacts the behavior of others. Takers waste endless hours speculating about what other people are doing and why they’re doing it.

6. Courage. Makers have the courage to make changes in the world around them, even when everything seems okay. Takers crave the security of knowing that things won’t change and do everything they can to keep the status quo.

7. Mastery. Makers work on essential skills and techniques until they’ve completely mastered them. Takers try out new skills or techniques and give up when they don’t immediately get the desired result.

† Holy and Righteous Symeon the God-receiver and the Prophetess Anna

“There is an ancient tradition that the holy, righteous elder Symeon, who came from Egypt, was one of the Seventy learned Jews chosen in the days of the Pharoah Ptolemy Philadelphus (285-246 BC) for the task of rendering the Hebrew Bible into Greek, and that to Symeon was assigned the translation of the book of the Prophet Isaiah.

5 Change Killers in Your Church

12 Dec

The very fact that we’re leaders means we have to chart the course and make bold steps toward the destiny God has designed for us.

The problem is … it doesn’t always work. Change is a scary proposition for most people, and so it’s not always received with the enthusiasm we envision.

Today I’m going to clarify why change is so hard for churches, and a few things we can do to make it easier:
