WRONG CHORD, WRONG PEOPLE


Miles Davis is one of the greatest Jazz  trumpeters-composers of all time, but this blog is not so much about Mile’s transcendent talent as it is his keen insight, intuition and sensitivity.

For me to appreciate Jazz and be so influence by this eclectic and sometimes complicated genre of music, is a true testimony to God’s desire to give good gifts to his children. I had no musicians in my family, but as a young girl, I had an uncanny gift to be able to know harmony. I loved to sing but had no idea I would have such a love of composing, experimenting with chords and playing my guitar quite many years later. So this jazz thing continues to compel me and my appetite for the scrumptious diminished, flatted fifths and major/minor chords teased my ear. My jazz artistry really grew, working with the incredible Calabrese brothers David and Michael.

Jazz became more and more a part of me and even though I was nursed on rock.  As lead vocalist, fronting my first Christian hard rock band, The Promise with lead guitarist, Chris Durante, I wanted to fuse the complex, sophisticated chords of Jazz with the power of Rock. Chris happened to be on the same wavelength as I and we composed many enduring collaborations whcih fused hard rock with Blues and jazz, thanks to jazz drummer. Tom Hill. When I learned the guitar, the sky was the limit for me and I wrote my first jazz song a month after learning the guitar!

God must have created me to be a jazz girl because the more my ear yearned for the gorgeous, unconventionality of Jazz, my appetite was continued quenched by fining jazz artist on the wonderful Christian music network, Indie heaven, founded by Keith Mohr. At Indie heaven, independent Christian artists could network and find a platform for their music.  being  jkazz-0folk female singer-songwriter, I connected with two of Indie heaven’s amazing Jazz ladies, Celeste Talley,  a sweet songbird crooner and Kerensa Grey, whose sultry, thick ,molasses voice that set all the dudes at ease. We had our prime star Drew Davidson, making a big name for himself all over the east coast.

Though it’s been hard to find a place for my Joni-Mitchelly voice and guitar style, I expect to find my niche…some day

And today, I couldn’t stop thinking about Kerensa’s post last year. Out of the blue, I remembered being so struck by Mile’s Davis band member sharing his experience of playing a wrong chord. Amazingly, through the myriads of old posts, I landed on that video.It really blew my mind when the player said Miles didn’t even lose his composure or make a face (like some of my past band mates would yell, belittle and deride our bandmate who played a sour chord, or lost there place in the song)  He improvised his chords,  making them fit with the off chord! That is genus.

Now, isn’t that so like our God, Our heavenly father who is the Jazz King. He never gets disgusted with us if we made a mistake, disrupts His plans or  veer of the road. As we abide in His leadership as our Leader of the band, he somehow works around our wrong chord!

Miles Davis’ band mate learned not just an astounding music lesson that day, but a life lesson. He was blessed to sit under a gracious leader. May we who are uptight, scrutinizing and demanding of others remember that when we cover each others weaknesses, we make ourselves look gracious. It is guaranteed that everyone of us has been or will do something that looks like an idiot. My desire is to so see people as my brothers and sisters who,  like me, have praiseworthy things to find and focus on and not the bad first impression whcih stays cemented in someone’s mind. I know one thing, I will never forget this video and plan to adapt the gracious, forgiving leadership style of Miles Davis as my musical and life pattern !

Secular Music VS Sacred Music Pt 2


So, one of my Christian  Facebook sisters  posted a  video on her Timeline.  It was David Bowie’s Video, Black Star. I was struck, at once by an ominous, disturbing feeling. Everything about the symbols and imagery made me feel sick, reminding me of the condition of the world. Truly our modern icons are preparing the new way and world.

More than ever, God’s people, His bride and the intercessors must watch and pray. This is not a time for us to ignore the demonic assaults satan has for the body of Christ and humanity. Truly, we must focus on God, His word and goodness, but the Bible  speaks of our battle being not against flesh and blood, but against  the principalities of darkness. We must be alert to prophetic end-time events and pray accordingly. These are not fear-mongering  events and propaganda, but to inform God’s people to what is happening around the world. I want to remind God’s children also about who will be cast into the  fire.

   Rev 21 6  But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.

The fearful and the unbelieving are listed first! Are you  mocking the men and women of God who are watchmen? Are you scoffing that all these  reports are simply  conspiracy theories? Your soul is at high risk for sudden death. This is no joking matter and satan has had plan A, B, C and D (thru his Illuminati for many centuries) prepared for any opposing move to his plan. God’s people must heed the warnings and pray.

A recording artist shared his testimony of how his music would be marketed and what its success would entail. It was shocking to me, because since a young girl, I’ve loved the music of my favorite outrageous recording artists such as Elton John, Freddie Mercury and even led Zeppelin. I never imagined, even as a born-again  child of God, how harmful my favorites artist’s music could influence my life.

The recording artist went on to describe the  process of preparing a recording work for the public. The artist had to be initiated as a witch to produce music. Every record recorded was brought to a special room in preparation for the satanic rituals and prayers of the demonically-anointed witches. During the full moon the master is taken to the temple room  Thirteen chosen witches and warlocks decree  and declare demonic principalities over the project.

Masses of our young people are enslaved through such devices of satan. Most parents have no idea what music and entertainment their children are watching and listening to.  They need to exercise their authority and responsibility to keep tabs and  talk with their kids about what is edifying and what is negative to their emotional health and well-being. We need to explain to our children that there is a spirit behind everything. Jesus taught us that we shall know them by their fruits. Mat 7:15-17

“Beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly are ravenous wolves. 16“You will know them by their fruits. Grapes are not gathered from thorn bushes nor figs from thistles, are they? 17“So every good tree bears good fruit, but the bad tree bears bad fruit.…

Parents, most music icons and sports heroes are wolves in sheeps clothing, promoting idolatry, sexual impurity-perversion, greed and violence.  The godly ones who give glory to God and celebrate their Christian faith are maligned and attacked by the media, the mainstream public and atheists. Teach your kids the difference between a godly role model and a perverted one.

Parents, adults and teachers, teach kids how to examine spiritual fruit.  What fruits are are music artists like  Katy Perry, Beyonce, Madonna, and sports idol  OJ Simpson producing? It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see that  sexual perversion, occult involvement and brutal murder are not conducive to the abundant lifestyle.  Christ’s  lifestyle promotes  peace that passes all understanding, emotional stability, freedom from torment,  transformation, contentment and especially divine wisdom and power! The fruit of a committed Christian should always exude those attributes which build up themselves and other people. What is is that  offends young people about Christianity that they seek after anything satanic, (witch craft, which always includes some form of torture and  blood sacrifice), hatred-genocide towards Christians or Jews and all kinds of perversion, bestiality and chaos. Is this what kids really desire? The music-entertainment industry has deceived the population that these are all okay and normal.

Here is where parental guidance is urgently needed. Adolescents and teen’s minds are not fully mature till after the age of eighteen. Thus, they aren’t able to understand the dynamic of negative choices, habits, actions and their consequences. The saddest fact about satan’s ploy against our youth is that he disguises them as glamorous and cool. Kids don’t see the outcome of a Ouija board experience or conjuring up spirits and playing with tarot cards.  I can attest by experience that any dabbling into satan’s territory produces bad fruit, or worse yet, nightmare events that  continue until true Christian deliverance occurs. Pretty daunting. My courtship with my first (now Ex) husband led me to the most terror-filled experience of my life for almost two years.

I endured extreme violence, hatred, stalking, emotional roller-coasters of him pleading for my and God’s forgiveness to him almost murdering me by smothering in our own bed! Many single and married women suffer domestic violence and misogyny (hatred and/or prejudice of women). Witchcraft is real. Curses are real. I almost died because of not being  spiritually covered by a strong, godly pastor and father. Someday, I will publish my book about my experience with demon-possessed  exes. Sadly, I suffered much and very deep emotional trauma and physical sickness because I was ignorant of satan’s extreme ability to keep me victimized and vulnerable.  Thankfully, because of staying intimate and in covenant with Abba God,  studying His word diligently and praying His word, Holy Spirit has blessed me with much more  wisdom, discernment and awareness of the strategic devices of Satan to keep Christians ensnared and defeated!

There are many scoffers who reply on these Youtube videos, saying it’s all BS, but I must bodily state the  consequences of dabbling in  the occult and being ensnared by the glossy and perverse  videos. The bottom line, folks is: the wages of sin is death! Rom 6:23.

Another evil fruit ensnaring millions of youth are debilitating depression, attempted and acts of suicide. The following is an expert from  PUB MED.gov:

The plaintiffs in a law suit alleged that the heavy metal rock band Judas Priest, and its publisher CBS, were liable for damages to two youths who shot themselves after listening to the band’s album. Crucial issues included “proximate cause” and “precipitating cause” in suicide, and the alleged role of subliminal messages. The judge ruled that although the “heavy metal” music might have had a toxic influence, the sounds and words are protected by the free speech first amendment. The influence of subliminal messages on behavior is unproven. There were many other elements in the personalities and situations of the victims to account for their self-destructive behavior.

We can also look to the Gothic subculture as another cause for young people cutting themselves to alleviate their emotional trauma.

http://www.jesus-is-savior.com/Evils%20in%20America/goth.htm

I remind you parents, teachers, educators, mentors and law enforcement  to be aware, confront  and assuage the ploys and attacks on our children who are being hit on every side. The Occult and New Age-tinged music and  entertainment are the main doors in which satan can access a young person’s spirit and mind. Kids who have difficulty fitting in are most often the prime targets for involvement in Gothic culture. Here is where strong, loving communication must be done regularly.  I can’t be more urgent than to ask all adults to uphold our youth in utmost prayer. I pray that these videos in my blog educate and inform you as to the seriousness of the destiny of the next generation. Keep in mind also how satan uses technology to dull the  mind of creativity, compassion and respect for life.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/health/4905898.stm

Prayer,

Father God, we uphold our young people to you. We cry out for these impressionable souls, their destinies, their callings and well-being. Deploy your warrior angels to war against the principalities of darkness in every arena, particularly regarding the music-entertainment industry and  film.  Empower and anoint fresh, spirit-filled recording, video and  graphic artists, as well as established spirit-filled Christian producers, A&R people who own their own companies and radio stations,  to create and produce God-glorifying music, documentaries, videos, games and motion pictures,. Let their works be more alluring than anything satan could ever produce.  Strengthen spiritually, teachers, college-age youth mentors and educational leaders with salvation and  anointing. Father, we ask that there be a Holy shift in this area, in the earthly and spiritual realm, that  sexually-perverted,  violent, self-destructive negative trends and mind-sets be reversed and destroyed forever. Let a Holy Spirit anointing usurp the demonic anointing of the many music icons and sports stars which are beguiling our precious youth. We declare a reversal of mental illness- depression and suicide. Anoint your people with gifts of deliverance where they recognize demonic spirits at work and cast them out. Let your people wake up to the reality of global satanic oppression, suppression and possession of millions of precious souls! We thank You,   All Powerful Heavenly Father, for victory and miracles for this generation. in Yashuha’s Jesus name, amen.

EFFECTUAL, FERVENT PRAYER


 

I was doing my weekly  task of calling the headquarters of the many ministries and political organizations who were constantly sending their requests for donations. Recycling all the unwanted junk mail was a mundane and frustrating task, but  I was making some headway. One such mailing in particular was from the the national Pro Life alliance. I called the number to sequester our name taken off their mailing list.  The lady who answered the phone ( who happened to be the CEO) politely asked me  for my name and address so she could remove us from the mailing list. Suddenly I felt to ask her how her organization was doing with their stop-abortion agenda. Abortion has always been  a burden for me, but now was the perfect reason to blog about it today.

I knew that beside getting our senate and congress compelled to  address abortion head on, I asked her what else they were doing to gain victory.  The concern for the murder of the unborn was also spilling over into the burgeoning medical-scientific research and experimentation of  of stem cell research involving fetuses. I’m troubled that  much of the church seems either uninformed or just plain apathetic about God’s opinion of baby-killing. And that is plainly what it is.

I’ve been journaling since 1977 and have yet to ignore things which  offend, baffle or enrage me.  The slaughtering of the unborn is one thing which ignites a righteous anger and I feel disturbed that only a remnant of God’s people are in an uproar about abortion and   lone wolf atheists opposing everything Christian. I wonder about the condition of the church  in the 70’s. Why didn’t pastors  inform and prepare their congregations for spiritual warfare against the repealing of prayer taken out of schools? It looks like that period was very lukewarm and nonchalant about upholding righteousness and holiness. and sadly, this door opened up to our protective hedge being breached and any foul, evil and destroying entity could now have unlimited access.

What really disturbs me is the mainstream public’s shock regarding the attack on 9/11.  It is ludicrous that many people (probably most of them never set foot in church or had any kind of relationship with Him) had the audacity to be horrified  and angry at God for allowing the fall of the twin towers! Did any pastors or rabbis inform  their people that their parents and grandparents are responsible for allowing the breach by their lukewarmness and apathy towards prayer and the things of God. We need to start addressing our  parents and grandparents mistake and repent for them and ourselves.

Sadly,  America’s destiny has already been sealed and we will have to pay for our  parents  immoral apathy.  Though many of us weren’torn yet or were children or adolescents at the time of the repealing of prayer in schools and the Roe vs Wade, that doesn’t exempt us from making a stand now to stop abortion and infanticide! Untold millions of babies are still be murdered each year and the latest stem cell research.

http://www.rtl.org/prolife_issues/LifeNotes/SacrificedWithoutConsent.html

America’s corporate sin is great and will be retaliated, nevertheless, God’s word says that the son shall not pay for the father’s sins and vice versa. Each one shall  stand in account for his own personal sin and for corporate sins he participated in, (which would also pertain to not doing the right thing when faced with the ability to do so). Gloriously,.  God’s own son has made provision for those who are in covenant with Him and His Son and they alone will be protected and provided for when  the world systems collapses and God’s righteous judgment crashes down. No one will be able to stand His wrath and His wrath is fair.(Selah)

Stop and think for a moment about what occurs doing an abortion. It should be law that every person within the age of consent watch a live video of an abortion. Maybe this is what it will take to open our eyes to the barbarities of these bloody killings.  Maybe one of these  live killing videos will  move our senators, congressmen and judges to boldly address the murder of the unborn. The enemy is alive and well and perpetuating human sacrifices, thus the killing of babies via abortion or stem cell research.

This video is extremely disturbing and you’ll end up weeping for this precious one as I did.  Please pray for these  priceless babies not be butchered anymore. Thank God for Alex Jones and his powerful  documentaries and journaling!

Going back to my phone call with the Pro-life administer, I asked her to explain to me what things were needed to gain victory. She said  the people needed to deluge their  lawmakers, the senate and congress with phone calls and letters.

I thought about this for a moment and pondered that we spend hours on Facebook, watching sports and TV programs and video games, but we can’t spare an hour to make calls or compose a letter to our congressman to remind him that abortion is murder of an innocent unborn baby! I hope someone is being convicted, because I am. God’s people are embroiled in stupid strife,  upset about being “unfriended” and even pastors are focusing their energy on slandering other ministries and/or ministers! People, we need to get focused and compassionate.We will have to stand an account for every idle word we speak, every negative attack-or suspicions we make on others and every sins of omission, ( refusing to do the godly thing, like voting responsibly, electing Goldy leaders and adamantly opposing evil, (in our laws and our constitutional freedoms…which we are apt to lose because most of us just don’t care). We are called to protect the orphans, widows and strangers in their time of affliction! Jesus called us  to be the salt of the earth and a city on a hill, not to acquiesce to one loud mouth atheists who gets hi/her way and gets the job done because of his extreme determination! Where is our determination, folks?!

Let’s not think for a minute that our constitutional freedoms and right to life will exist without strong  opposition.  Satan’s MO is to enslave and  cause misery to all of humanity. So, Jude tells us in 1:3 to contend earnestly for the faith!

Jude could not resist appealing (parakaleo, “exhorting, encouraging”) to his readers that they contend earnestly for the faith. The powerful expression contend earnestly translates a present infinitive (epagonizomai) and stresses the need to defend the truth continually and vigorously (cf. 1 Tim. 1:18; 6:12; 2 Tim. 4:7). It is a compound verb from which the English agonize is transliterated. From Jude’s day until now, true believers have always had to battle for the purity of the salvation gospel.

That being said, it is time for the body of Christ to start contending for righteousness, obedience to God and His commandments and to our calling to be our brothers/sisters keeper. Until we do that, our nation will receive utter devastation. It may be too late for the nation as a whole, but it is not yet too late for His true church to redeem herself by repentance, fasting and prayer.

Come now my brother and sister, let us reason together in the lord and let us receive God’s mercy helping to repeal  Roe Vs Wade and incite prayer in schools and public places.

Prayer:

Father God,  we repent and renounce our wicked nonchalance towards evil, unrighteousness and sin. We cry out for your mercy, even in wrath, (Hab 3:2). Remove our heart of stone and replace it with Your heart of flesh, (Eze 36:26) Deploy your warrior and ministry angels across the United States, the every church, pastor, rabbi, teacher and public servant, every mayor, governor, assemblyman, congressman, senator and  as far as the white house, to war against the spirits of death, violence, apathy,hate, fear and injustice. Holy Spirit, incite your people to get spiritually aggressive against abortion, stem cell research and defending our constitutional rights. We know that time has run out, but perhaps if there are two grains left in the hour glass, let them stay suspended until we have our victory in you. We declare  a shift in the earthly and heavenly realms. We thank you, Father, for once again hearing our fervent and effectual prayers. In Jesus name, we pray, amen.

UNITY of the BRETHREN

Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity!  PSALM 133

Since a young girl I’ve always wanted to live happily with my sisters, get along with my classmates, have wonderful friendships and be obedient to my parents.  In that aspect,  I haven’t changed. I still want more than anything to be reconciled to all those in my circles.

Sadly, I’m noticing people are acting strange. I’m hearing about  rivalry,  jealous criticism and just plain being overly touchy, (thin-skinned).

Right on Facebook, I hear about people being “unfriended” without a reason and no communication! So, what is that all about?

My friends have  asked, What did I do?”

Obviously, the  person  who unfriended forgot about Jesus saying we must forgive our brother 70 times 70!  I’m hoping to remind myself and anyone that we shouldn’t diss  people for the smallest of reasons and if they did offend us, please tell me what I did. I would be more than happy to discuss and move forward in our relationship.

Let;’s also remember  that satan is the  accuser  of the brethren. He stands before Father to accuse us and his cohorts whisper lies or exaggerate  a small fault we have to make it bigger than it really is. We are all overwhelmed ( and forgetful) with family, jobs and especially the bad things happening around the world.  We need to stick together and give each other the benefit of the doubt. We can’t read each others’ minds and sometimes something we said or something we may have forgotten to do hurt or offended you.

Let’s all talk together in love and stay close , edify and strengthen each other, (as our LORD says)  Let’s get over ourselves and get on with tweaking each other in words of love, edifying and  proper, honest & loving communication! This is for anyone I may have “unknowingly offended:)  Blessings and LOVE to all.

Top Secret War On Christmas Plans Revealed


It seems we have not learned much from the terrorist attack on 9/11. On that infamous day, the anguished cries of many resounded throughout the land. “Why did God let this happen to us” Immediately afterwards, churches, temples and synagogues were filled with repentant and devastated people humbling themselves before the Yahweh God.

After reading Jeff Edelstein’s piece on the top-secret war on Christmas, I marveled that, number 1, a large portion of the page of a popular New Jersey newspaper could waste space about abolishing Christmas!. Number 2, that the Jews are a very intellectual lot and I marvel that in light of all the political chaos, our national deficit and genocide going on in third world countries the subject of Christmas’s abolishing was a priority!?

http://www.trentonian.com/opinion/20131208/jeff-edelstein-top-secret-war-on-christmas-plans-revealed-dont-show-bill-oreilly

As a philanthropic journalist, addressing humanitarian issues on the local, national and international level, I’m getting tired of the violent opposition from atheistic and/or secular groups who adamantly seek to edit and delete every nuance of sacred and Christian references of holidays and influences.

It is time for God’s people to set the record straight: :that our nation was founded on Christian values and the ten commandments. It is time for our leaders to discern deeply the necessity of acquiescing to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob who blessed the United State of America with such prosperity, protection and military strength. It is time we learn from history, past and especially the recent past, (the attack on WTC.), that God will continue to allow horrific attacks and destruction if we continue to despise and edit God from our society. Time to read Rabbi Cahn’s book, “The Harbinger.”

Every good and every perfect gift is from Yahweh, the Father of lights. If we despise, reject and push God out of our schools, government and politics, surely He has no covenant responsibility to protect us from terrorists or any violent group!

The next time a demonic gunman assassinates innocent, small schoolchildren (Sandy Hook and Columbine High School) or our own military people are ambushed by terrorists, (Fort Hood), don’t blame God!

My prayer for this Christmas season is for divine wisdom, revelation and peace to illuminate the blinded, deluded hearts of ignorant journalists, reporters and the news media. Whether you believe in God or not, He is still on His throne. He is still watching and everything we do is recording in the Book of Life.

If God’s people do not stand united in unceasing prayer and vigilance, America will fall to a worse terror they have ever known and it will be too late.

In the meantime, I prefer to continue investing my energies in supporting Christian and humanitarian organizations that feed the poor, homeless and visiting the sick and dying. I find no greater joy than counseling broken people to wholeness in love and self-sufficiency. There is plenty of useful work for every one of us to do, (mentoring a child from a broken home, filling needs of single moms and the bed-ridden, etc). If we would concentrate on doing random acts of kindness everyday through love, America will be different! Sadly, Mr. Edelstein’s piece is a tribute to where America is today, languishing in idle nonsense and rebellion against that which is good!

WHAT FREEDOM MEANS to ME


WHAT FREEDOM MEANS TO ME

This April 2012, I’ve celebrated thirty years of serving Jesus Christ. Looking back, I marvel at my miraculous journey through the minefield my life, beset with life-threatening illness, poverty, loneliness and near death. Freedom is the word to describe my life in Him!

I want to talk to you about freedom. I’m the product of a dark-skinned Puerto-Rican father and an immigrant German mother. My father sought to escape the tyranny of prejudice. Enlisted in the army and stationed in Germany, he met his future bride who he brought with him back to the US mainland . He settled in Long Branch, NJ with plans of raising his four daughters to be educated and successful. America was where anyone’s dream could be realized.

I keep in my heart Papito’s decision to raise us here in America and his influence on my life. He taught me that I could aspire to anything I wanted to and to utilize my American freedom.as an entrepreneur, tradesman or productive citizen. That was what America was about. Most of all being an American citizen has enabled me to be a passionate mouthpiece for the Good News of Jesus Christ, who is the one and only emancipator. Freedom is a gift from God to every human being.

I was born to be God’s handiwork, His masterpiece. Before I was even thought of, He had magnificent plans for me, as He does all His creation. Satan determined that I not be born and even in my mother’s womb, I was baptized with my mother’s tumultuous, bi-polar demeanor. But God ordained me to be born. Satan tried to kill me by taking my breath away countless times while in my father’s arms.

Papito knew I was special, his firstborn. Though born in Germany, I was a United States citizen. In our new country, Papito had a tremendously hard time coping with prejudice and with my mother’s post traumatic stress syndrome. She was haunted by memories of the bombs dropping on her hometown in Germany as a tiny girl. The Nazi/Aryan influences followed her to America. My little sisters, my father and I endured the brunt of her rage and I marvel that he was able to endure such a miserable marriage. He managed as best as he could, teaching me the values of hard work, wisdom and self-sufficiency. Most of all, he taught me all about how God was the source, the essence and everything he was!

During high school, my parents divorced and I ended up on my own. Though Papito had given me a solid foundation of faith/love for God and resourcefulness, I was not at all prepared to face the world. I was fearful, fragile and vulnerable as well as had a shame complex from being a bi-cultural child.

But God had a purpose for me to be born to the parents I had and also for the mistakes I made along the way to emancipation! He threw His life rope, Jesus Christ, in 1983 and my gait was steadied> Test after test faced me. Eventually, I enrolled in college, excelling and soaring in my confidence.

Satan disguises himself as an angel of light and got a foothold in my life through a relationship with a handsome, introspective guy I met at college. I fell for his french love poems and roses and deemed him to be my prince charming. When he accepted the Lord Jesus at a Christian concert, I thought God brought me my partner and soul mate. I agreed to court him and thus began my hellish year and a half of his Jekyll and Hyde demeanor. He threatened to murder me if I didn’t marry him. That time was one of the most daunting trials of my entire life, but God was allowing me to taste what it was like to be enslaved, miserable and alone. As recall, I’d lost all will to live, dwindled down to a skeleton and gave up any hope of ever being happy or free again. It was a grievous test, but God delivered me. Satan sought to enslave me, but Jesus set me free!

What a testimony, my emancipation from childhood abuse/bullying and domestic violence. Are you suffering enslavement? Ask Jesus to set you free!

That was in 1986, I faced many more difficult trials including attacks on my body: near death from a pneumonia, carbon monoxide poisoning, (from a broken heater in my apartment) and chronic Lyme Disease. Yet another malady the past five and a half years, a neurological disorder, Dystonia, has been a great challenge. Some would call this a string of bad luck episodes but what Jesus has done with my life can be nothing shirt of a miracle. Out of all this suffering, I have gained a gift of compassion and desire to mentor.

My gift of compassion and faith-healing happened during a most sublime experience. I ministered to two severely injured men involved in a high-speed head on collision on one of the rural highways near our development. I also have been called to pray at bedside of comatose people about to expire and was asked by the head chaplain to preach my first sermon at a maximum security prison! only could Jesus Christ initiate and transform such amazing episodes.

A favorite new activity, performing with my guitar on Jersey shore board walks and the talking to people from all walks of life has been a joy. Oh, to live in this great country, to share the Gospel without fear of being attacked, raped or arrested. Here n America is where the free bloom like roses! there is still hope for we evangelists to take go’s emancipation to all the streets.This past summer, a friend invited me to join him at the Seaside Heights boardwalk to share the Gospel. We met a group of young ministers who told us that we should enjoy ourselves because the judge told the police officers not to bother the evangelists or they would have to deal with him!

I can only more deeply relish my God-given gift of freedom, but I’ve lately received some disturbing wake-up calls to threat of my deeply cherished commodity. A recent post on a friend’s Facebook page caught my attention. Bridget Gabrielle, anti-terrorist activist gave a compelling speech at a Dallas church last year. I learned that our democracy and Constitution are threatened by militant Muslim terrorists and their agenda is to dominate the world with Islam and Sharia law. She reminded us that we cannot plead ignorance or that terrorism only happens “over there”. Sharia law poses a great threat especially to American women. Gabrielle says:

“We can educate til the cows come home.“Nothing’s gonna change. Education is important, but it not sufficient. Education must be coupled with action. We have something that most countries do not have, our constitution and our Bill of Rights that give us the power to change the world. Don’t just love America, act for America”

Gabriel’s words at the closing of her powerful message were in deep appreciation of the sacrifice of our military.

“Thank you from the bottom of my heart, where an immigrant
like me can escape tyranny and come here and live in this great nation. Where people from all over the world can be free. Thank you for building a nation for me where I can come and be all that I can be, where I can accomplish anything I can accomplish. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, where I can stand up and speak freely without fearing for my life, where I can exercise my freedom
of speech, freedom of the press and freedom of religion. And every other freedom I have. I know my freedom and the freedom of everyone sitting here is built upon your shoulders and your sacrifice.”

Now, this amazing woman is a cherished role models for she echoes my own feelings for my beloved country, America. When European immigrants emigrated from their homelands to come to America through Ellis Island, They sought freedom and the pursuit of happiness, progress and to worship without fear.

My own dear Puerto-Rican father also struggled to make a better life and worked hard to give back to his country. I deeply respect the children of immigrants like senator Marco Rubio who have shared similar stories of watching their parents struggle to attain progress, but with complete freedom in this this wonderful country, America..

We have the freedom to take under our wings the battered, broken and misplaced and teach them about honor, hard work, progress and the pursuit of health and happiness. If we lose America to Islam, we will also lose the great creativity, insight and wisdom of Christian, conservative and human-right activists who seek to guarantee freedom and liberty to all. We will also lose the freedom to provide financial and spiritual resources to countless third-world nations who would not be able to survive without our help. We have been blessed, but we can lose all that our forefathers and our military have envisioned and fought for!

I’m shocked at the ignorance of Many of my fellow Americans who have no idea, nor do they care about what is happening to our nation today. Many do not even bother to vote, (and that included evangelical Christians! Tyranny lies await at our border and it’s time for us all to question and investigate what our government is doing.

I believe the ignorance pervading so many may be because of coddled, comfortable childhoods. Perhaps many of you have had loving parents and you never had to struggle. Maybe you’ve never tasted the horror of your town or village being attacked by machete-yielding assassins or got shot as you sneaked out of your bomb shelter to find water I suggest everyone spend an evening watching “Attack on Darfur’, “Hotel Rwanda” or ‘Shindler’s List” Anyone of these will give you a glimpse of the suffering of people under a tyrannic takeover. Yes, it could happen in America.. Islam has .

God had a plan for Brigette Gabrielle, He has a plan for me and he has a plan for you…not to harm you, but to give you a purpose. Does Islam’s god have a loving plan for you? Does Islam have a loving redeemer who sacrificed is own life and left Heaven’s glory and rose from the grave to all enslaved by sin, misery, famine, poverty and death. Jesus Christ, Yeshua HaMashiach is the only one true light and redeemer of mankind.

Don’t be deceive my friend, but leaders and religions who proclaim free health benefits, a bungalow and free education. Look at Russia who are enslaved by socialism. They are amongst the most unhappiest people in the world. Yes, the government gave them all they wanted, their entitlement, but at what price? The Piper will always demand a price.

. “The thief cometh not, but that he may steal, and kill, and destroy: I came that they may have life, and may have [it] abundantly. John 10:10

The anarchy, chaos and genocide are fruits of an evil god and it is time we differentiate between what is evil and what is good.

Jesus came to bring all men abundant life! No other god or religion can promise that.

That’s why I love America…because Jesus lives freely here!

LIBERTY and POLITICS


As my husband and I were getting ready to wind down and retire after a long day, he remarked that his stance of Christians’ civic and voting responsibility was causing a stir with certain of his co-workers. Ones responses was,

“Christians should just follow Jesus example. He never told us to be involved in politics.”

Sound familiar? Mark and I both share the same ideologies and deeply revere the foundations that our godly forefathers incepted. The past year, I’ve been feeling the the weight of the disgraces permeating our once glorious nation and that weight has drawn me to the daily discipline of interceding in prayer on behalf of my beloved country. I asked God to show me how He felt about politics, voting and our responsibility as his peculiar, chosen and special people. After many restless nights praying about this, he finally compelled me to dig deeply into His word.

My Bible opened to Deuteronomy 16:18-20

18 “You shall appoint for yourself judges and officers in all your [a]towns which the Lord your God is giving you, according to your tribes, and they shall judge the people with righteous judgment. 19 You shall not distort justice; you shall not [b]be partial, and you shall not take a bribe, for a bribe blinds the eyes of the wise and perverts the words of the righteous. 20 Justice, and only justice, you shall pursue, that you may live and possess the land which the Lord your God is giving you.

Exodus 23:6-9 (NIV)

6 “Do not deny justice to your poor people in their lawsuits. 7 Have nothing to do with a false charge and do not put an innocent or honest person to death, for I will not acquit the guilty.

8 “Do not accept a bribe, for a bribe blinds those who see and twists the words of the innocent.

9 “Do not oppress a foreigner; you yourselves know how it feels to be foreigners, because you were foreigners in Egypt.

These two sections declare that we are to elect and be involved in all the complex and pressing issues that assail our families, communities and nation! Many Christians use the excuse of “separation of church and state” when there is no such term forbidding us to be a part of the election process of officials. We had better get our information together before we make excuses. If we continue to allow atheists and liberals to edit and re-write or Constitution, we will end up enslaved like the Israelites of the old testament.

Presently, a great debate rages regarding Mitt Romney’s Mormon beliefs. This could divide evangelicals and could bring about the re-election of president Obama.

I’d like to talk a little about the law of religion and the law of grace. The Bible is always our guide whenever we are faced with very difficult decisions, so the following discourse about Jesus should be a guideline on how to vote this November election.

The Pharisees loved to try to trap Jesus in a debate regrading any action that seemed unceremonious or outside the parameters of the law. In a certain occasion:

Matthew 5:17-25

17 “Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. 18 For truly, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the Law until all is accomplished. 19 Therefore whoever relaxes one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever does them and teaches them will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20 For I tell you, unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.

Jesus was able to straddle beautifully the boundaries of old testament law with the present cultural and legals issues of His day.

If we are presented with a tragedy and victims are suffering, do we rescue them if it happens on the Sabbath, or do we turn away like the priest and the Levite during their travels when faced with a half-dead robbery victim?. If we are faced with two candidates, both who we deem unsuitable to represent and preside over our nation, which do we vote for? Hopefully, he should abide by the most important commandments and things that are dear to God’s heart. We know God said not to kill. Does the presidential candidate support abortion and the man and woman as a married couple? Last but not least does He bless Israel?

Since the dawn of Adam and Eve have we looked for loopholes to avoid the responsibilities God has assigned us. But God will hold us accountable to every minute thought, action and deed. If we choose not to vote, we have still made a decision to stand for nothing.

“For truly, I say to you, until heaven and earth pass
away, not an iota, not a dot, will pass from the Law until
all is accomplished.Jesus said in Mat 5:18

I pray Pastors will be like Ezra and Nehemiah, bringing out the law to remind the people of God’s promises and covenant. Jehoshaphat also gathered the assembly and revival was renewed under his kingship. When the law is revived and taught and pastors teach their flock how to balance the law with grace, we will enjoy the blessings of Yahweh. Whenever the Israelites were enslaved and abused by the heathen who dominated them and they cried out to God for deliverance, God sent them a king after his own heart. If Gods’ people, the church continue to allow liberals and atheists to edit our Constitution and Bill of Rights and remove God’s name from our public buildings, God will remove His hedge of protection. We should not be surprised at terrorist attacks when we ask God to remove himself from our democracy!

Last night, I was reminded of America’s fallen legacy as I watched documentaries of the destruction of the World Trade Centers on History Channel. What a tragedy and what a harsh lesson we Americans should have learned. This was a harbinger of what happens to a society that disobeys and rebels against God. Let us come to our senses and know that God’s commandments are for our protection and blessing. Without them, there would be anarchy, chaos, murder and slavery.

People, wake up! Let wisdom and humility towards God rule your lives and the decisions you make for the upcoming elections. Pastors, Rabbis and priests, be bold and uncompromising as you share God’s heart and assist your flock to choose the leaders closest to God’s ideal…and God help America as she struggles to get back on track.
