A Nation Gasping For Air


I deplore profanity.

 

A couple of days ago President Trump expressed the desire to declare the Antifa-instigators of violence, rioting and looting after the tragic murder of George Floyd by then Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin a domestic terrorist organization. I then read and hear Dems and the MSM become outraged that President Trump deplores property and person being violently assaulted.

 

When I heard and read these idiots defend Antifa violence, my first reaction was and is  – DAMN!

 

Rather than support Trump to protect property and people from these anti-American Communist Antifa thugs, the President receives criticism about the authority to act. Again – DAMN!

 

Maybe Dems and the MSM will pay attention when armed vigilantes begin protecting property and property owners threatened by Antifa or Antifa-inspired sheeple. How will vigilantes protect property and people against thugs? I’m not a rocket scientist but I suspect this is where the Second Amendment comes into play. YUP, LOOTING WILL LEAD TO SHOOTING!

A Nation Gasping For Air

Riots Are Socially Destructive And Self-Defeating

 

By Justin O. Smith

For they have sown the wind, and they shall reap the whirlwind”  ~ Hosea 8:7

 

America’s cities are burning today, from New York to Philadelphia and Seattle to Nashville, (May 31st) still, after five days of chaos and anarchy, and rioters and looters are having a field day as they cart off toilet paper, liquor, 50″ HD televisions and electronics, proving that their actions are no longer focused on the murder of George Floyd by a Minneapolis police officer. Thugs, criminals, communists and anarchists have forced the situation to devolve, and they act as if America’s cities owe them the courtesy of allowing them to loot and destroy whole cities, to make up for an array of grievances, both real and imagined, that emanate from the “social justice” crap so prevalent in our society today. And too many mayors, such as Nashville’s John Cooper, and governors, too, seem reticent to act to stop them. Even the most patriotic American, deep in their heart, would struggle to feel proud of their country and optimistic about its future after this week.

 

I full well understand the frustration and anger felt by those legitimate peaceful protesters, who only want to ensure that Floyd’s death isn’t simply shrugged off. Although I do believe a large element of racism still exists in America today, from many different segments of our society, Floyd’s death wasn’t any more egregious or horrendous than that of Tony Timpa, a 32 year old white man, who was murdered by Dallas Police, in 2016, as he pleaded for help thirty times. However, I also believe that a white person wouldn’t have been so sorely abused and mistreated by any police force, most usually, as Floyd was over a $20 counterfeit bill.

 

Floyd died telling police officers “I can’t breathe” and calling out for his mother. Eric Garner, a black man from New York, uttered the very same words just before his death, in 2014, caused by a police chokehold.

 

[Blog Editor: A 2nd autopsy from a former Medical Examiner Dr. Michael Baden has a different conclusion from Minneapolis Medical Examiner on George Floyd’s death:

 

EXCLUSIVE: George Floyd died “many minutes” before he was transferred to a stretcher and taken to a Minneapolis hospital, forensic pathologist Dr. Michael Baden told Sean Hannity Monday.

 

Baden, one of two doctors to conduct an independent autopsy that concluded that Floyd died of asphyxiation at the hands of local police on May 25, told Fox News that medics “tried to do CPR with him [Floyd] in the ambulance, but were unable to find a pulse.

 

“He had a cardiac arrest and they tried to shock him and the shocks didn’t work,” Baden added. “He was dead before they put him on the stretcher … many minutes before he gets to the hospital.”

 

GEORGE FLOYD’S FAMILY RELEASES INDEPENDENT AUTOPSY SHOWING DEATH BY ASFIXIATION 

 

According to the independent autopsy report released by Floyd’s family, he died of asphyxia due to neck and back compression that led to a lack of blood flow to the brain.

 

Preliminary results from the official autopsy, which were included in a criminal complaint against former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin — who kneeled on Floyd’s neck for eight minutes in the now-viral video — said officials had found nothing “to support a diagnosis of traumatic asphyxia or strangulation.” On Monday, an updated autopsy report classified Floyd’s death as a homicide and listed the cause of death as “cardiopulmonary arrest complicating law enforcement subdual, restraint, and neck compression.” … READ ENTIRETYDr. Michael Baden says George Floyd was dead ‘many minutes’ before he was transferred to hospital; By Yael Halon; Fox News; 6/1/20]

 

Now, America is on fire. All across America we see images of cars and buildings ablaze. Giant balls of flame erupt and the streets are choked with black smoke blanketing the sky. Protesters throw fire-extinguishers, knives, bottles and rocks at police, and grocery and department stores are being looted.

 

I thought the good people of Nashville might actually avoid getting sucked into the madness of the maddening masses’ ignorance, but evil knows no limit and leaves nothing in this world untouched, so I was obviously hoping for too much. Many of us were shocked to see a supposed “peaceful protest” turn ugly within a matter of just a couple of hours, with rioters setting the Nashville Courthouse ablaze on May 30th and destroying a large swathe of Nashville’s Lower Broad tourist area.

Incredibly, the “peaceful protest” in my hometown of Murfreesboro, TN led to the city being placed under a “state of emergency” by Governor Bill Lee and Mayor Shane McFarland, after a prayer vigil and protest on Sunday, March 31st, “turned violent” and a police armored vehicle was vandalized and a brick was thrown through the window of Whiskey Dix’s business. At approximately 7:00 pm, McFarland ordered a curfew to go into effect, and about forty-five minutes later, Gov. Lee threw his support behind the move with his statement, that “the protests in Murfreesboro are no longer peaceful but have escalated to overt threats to public safety and property”. But overall, the situation was mild compared to other parts of the nation, thankfully.

 

No one should condone the violence spreading across this country, as an answer to George Floyd’s horrific murder. These riots that are tearing our cities apart, from Minneapolis to all points beyond, coast-to-coast, can and will only lead to more suffering, and it also overshadows the peaceful demonstrations actually in support of finding justice for George Floyd and his family, as the leftists, ANTIFA, communists and anarchists continue their quest for cosmic justice — the sort of justice they think will settle all scores of racial grievance for all time, which, of course, is unlikely to ever be settled by any means, until they have succeeded in completely destroying the founding principles of America.

 

[Blog Editor: Antifa is not interested in the principles of America’s Founding Documents, Principles nor Liberty. Antifa utilizes anarchy to complete a Communist transformation of America by any means necessary. Consider some truth you WILL NOT hear from complicit Dems or their propaganda MSM:

 

 

 

 

I am posting an important Trevor Loudon video exposé of Antifa at the end of Justin Smith’s submission]

 

What a sad day for America. I am disgusted and infuriated, not just by the murder of George Floyd, but even more so by the destruction that the ignorant mobs across the country are wreaking throughout nearly every major city. Their actions are not making America better and they certainly do not serve any real idea of justice, since the poor minority business owners, and white business owners, too, such as Ed Smith, owner of Big Time Boots in Nashville, TN, have most likely been left wondering just how justice has been served by the destruction of their businesses, burnt to the ground or simply torn apart by frenzied, crazed, senseless mobs.

 

And now we are to be lectured by the servants of those purveyors of “racist America”, such as Chris Wallace at Fox News, who tell us that black men are twice as likely to meet a bad end at the hands of police than white men. Could it be a difference in upbringing and home life? Could it simply be a cultural difference and a certain proclivity to go against the moral norms of America? Whatever the reason, black people comprise thirteen percent of America’s population, and yet they are responsible for a disproportionate number of crimes, including fifty-two percent of the murders in America.

 

Unfortunately, the race-baiters are out in full force, basically handing out the matches and gasoline that continue to stoke the riots, similar to Minnesota’s Attorney General Keith Ellison, who invited Jesse Jackson to Minnesota. Jackson said, “the pain is real” and “rioting is the voice of those who truly have no way to express themselves”, shortly after leaving a meeting with Ellison, according to KARE11’s Adrienne Broaddus. Al Sharpton, who was instrumental in inciting the 1991 Crown Heights riots and numerous other incendiary situations, was on hand to offer his worthless two-cents, also, observing that destroying “black-owned stores” was “reckless”, begging the question … What about other Minneapolis businesses?

 

We’ve all seen the video of George Floyd’s murder by now, and most of us have wondered how could anyone end up handcuffed and pinned down on the street, in distress and dying under the knees of a law enforcement officer anywhere in America? It calls for us to be outraged and it’s right to demand justice, but what we are witnessing today is far from justice, and it is far removed from anything whatsoever to do with Mr. Floyd’s death.

 

It’s very unfortunate that this violence, chaos and anarchy is unfolding in America right now. And although purposeful protest is intended to deliver a strong message to the leaders of the cities and states across the country, the message has now been sent, the message has been received and the powers-that-be have acknowledged it by arresting Derek Chauvin quickly by any known standard, with charges against the remaining officers and their arrests more than likely to follow. Justice is forthcoming and change should be on the way, if a city has moral leadership, so there actually is nothing that warrants the actions of the rioters. Their actions are based on an entirely different agenda.

 

On May 29th, U.S. Attorney General William Barr stated, that the Department, the DOJ and FBI, “is conducting an independent investigation to determine whether any federal civil-rights laws were violated”.

 

Emotions are also running high, and many cities are dealing with a devious, immoral left that declares any inconvenient fact “racist”. America is also witnessing well-funded professional agitators inciting the violence and riots, stoking mob anger. And we see too many in positions of power — I won’t call them “leaders” — forcing a collective suicide for their own political causes, in a manner all too reminiscent of what transpired during the Ferguson riots.

 

While many leftists across our nation are so quick to throw out Dr. Martin Luther King’s 1967 observation that “a riot is the language of the unheard”, they forget that it was prefaced with, “Let me say as I’ve always said, and I will always continue to say, that riots are socially destructive and self-defeating.”

 

Just how much rioting, looting and arson will be enough to slate the collective “aggrieved’s” sense of solidarity in their quest for justice? Five nights? Three weeks? Six months? Will it actually cease if and when the remaining three officers are prosecuted for murder? How much rioting, looting and arson will the authorities in cities across America allow to blast the nation before they move to forcefully stop it? Does all this chaos amplify itself in a feedback loop as it plays out?

 

At a press conference held in Minneapolis on May 29th, Eric Garner’s mother, Gwen Carr addressed the crowd, saying: “Don’t let this (just) be another news story … We all have to get out and stand together and we don’t have to do it violently. We can do it politically. Don’t sit around and say ‘My vote don’t count’. We put these politicians in and we can take them out.”

 

As Alfred Pennyworth notes in the movie Dark Knight: “… some men aren’t looking for anything logical, like money. They can’t be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.”

 

In a fiery speech on May 29th, Atlanta Mayor Keishs Lance Bottoms stated: “This is not Atlanta. This is not a protest. This is not in the spirit of Martin Luther King Jr. This is chaos. A protest has purpose. When Dr. King was assassinated we didn’t do this to our city. … You are disgracing our city. You are disgracing the life of George Floyd and every other person who has been killed in this country. We are better than this. We are better than this as a city. We are better than this as a country. Go home, go home.”

 

These rioters are killing people, they are killing businesses and they are killing America. They are ensuring that America becomes the land of the angry and the home of the divided, a nation that is itself gasping for air.

 

Whatever sympathy the people may have felt for Black Lives Matter or greater police accountability collapsed, as the riots grew from isolated incidents into a nationwide violent upheaval, largely orchestrated and conducted by the worse elements of our society. They have lost the moral high ground.

 

And with that said, in regards to the violent looters, taking a page from Miami’s Police Chief Walter Headley suggestion in 1967, it is past time that criminal looters are dealt with in the most severe and harsh manner, regardless of what color they are, since today we see looters of all colors, many communists and anarchists, many simple-minded opportunists, just as likely to be the perpetrators. We have the weapons to halt this chaos and mayhem, and we have the weapons to use in this war against criminal and subversive acts and this war against America, by immoral people intent on taking America down. Looters used to be shot in the act. It’s time to revive the practice and put an end to this anarchy that is destroying the livelihoods that were built, in many instances, over a person’s lifetime, in the name of restoring order and “the rule of law”.

 

The promise of the Declaration of Independence that all men are created equal applies to every individual of every race, the George Floyds and the Ed Smiths, who have the right to their lives and their livelihoods to be protected and defended by the powers-that-be and law enforcement at every level.

 

Embedded in our culture for four-hundred years, racism is America’s Achilles’ Heel, but right is right and wrong is wrong. Floyd’s murder is reprehensible and demands swift justice. The destruction of American cities and some store owners being beaten senseless, as they try to defend their stores, is equally reprehensible and demands equal swift justice. And real justice in America will only come, when all Americans stop judging anyone by race and reject the calls to “reject racism”, by simply living and acting as good, decent and moral human beings, regardless of one’s color and ethnicity. Reject the natural end result of a “social justice” communist philosophy that works overtime to absolve individuals of responsibility for their crimes and blames others for political advantage. Reject rage for the sake of rage, to engage in unthinking hate, and use George Floyd’s murder to place racism in history’s dustbin, rather than continue to burn down our homes and destroy America, still the greatest nation on earth.

VIDEO: America Under Siege: Antifa

Posted by Capital Research Center

21.8K subscribers – Sep 25, 2017

 

The communist movement known as Antifa (short for Anti-Fascist Action) has sparked violence across the nation. In the wake of their battling despicable white supremacist in Charlottesville, Antifa has begun to gain mainstream popularity. But unbeknownst to much of the public, the vast majority of Antifa violence isn’t targeted at genuine fascists, but mainstream conservatives and civilians. With help from those who have encountered Antifa, including Milo Yiannopoulos, Gavin McInnes, Lauren Southern, Jack Posobiec, and Steve Deace, conservative author Trevor Loudon guides us through the history and ideas behind the Antifa movement, starting with Leon Trotsky and going all the way through the events in Berkeley, CA and Charlottesville, VA.

 

“Antifa” is the third episode in the “America Under Siege” documentary web-series from Dangerous Documentaries (a project of the Capital Research Center) and Cohesion Films. Each episode profiles the influence of radical Marxists on various segments of American society.

Liberty First and Foremost


Justin Smith writes a powerful essay about the dangers of dependence on Big Government by American citizens. A Big Government incidentally, wholly endorsed by the American Democratic Party as a remedy for molding American lives.

 

Molding lives via government is the paradigm goal of Communism to bring an unreachable political utopia devoid of humanity’s Creator and hence devoid of the Creator’s plan of morality bring about the true utopia of the created unified with the very Will of the Creator.

 

Reaching for the unreachable is merely man-think for despotic few to dominate the individual lives of the many duped into doing what they are told … or else.

Liberty First and Foremost

Free Men Reject Big Government

 

By Justin O. Smith

Sent 10/19/2018 1:01 PM

 

The Democratic Party has grown to be the enemy within our country, and the communist Democrats working in federal positions are the same as foreign agents infiltrated into federal agencies, seeking to do whatever is needed to end this republic. However, an equally dangerous enemy is found in a government that no longer adheres to the limits the document that created government imposes upon them, and now, it very nearly does not matter who occupies the seats of power within government, because government itself has become a monster that devours the freedom it was established to protect.

 

Our country is too expansive to be governed effectively by a strong central government without that government becoming tyrannical.

 

If America ever hopes to restore itself anywhere close to the Founding Principles [Blog Editor: Web posts this Editor believes demonstrate the Founding Fathers’ concept of Founding Principles: HERE, HERE, HERE and a very important 2011 essay – HERE], the people of America must place liberty first and foremost on their list of priorities and stop asking government to pass laws that are designed to somehow help them in life. A free man does not need government for anything; they succeed or fail based upon their own merit and accept whatever hand life deals them without asking for any assistance from their government.

 

Sadly and unfortunate for America, far too many of our countrymen — an extremely high percentage — have the mentality that they shouldn’t be required to take care of themselves; that should be the job of the federal government.

 

When we tolerate laws that criminalize the defense of our lives, liberty and property, we make ourselves slaves to those who dictate when and where can defend ourselves. To pass laws which require that a portion of society be required to subsidize the existence of another is also a violation of our right to enjoy the full benefit of the fruits of our labor; i.e. or income. Thomas Jefferson expressed that belief as follows,

 

To take from one, because it is thought his own industry and that of his fathers has acquired too much, in order to spare to others, who, or whose fathers, have not exercised equal industry and skill, is to violate arbitrarily the first principle of association, the guarantee to everyone the free exercise of his industry and the fruits acquired by it.

 

Freedom, or liberty, is a two sided coin; you are free to do as you please as long as you don’t restrict others from doing the same. At the same time you and you alone are responsible for the consequences of your decisions and actions. People say they want freedom, and yet, they shun the consequences of their actions, as they seek political candidates who will provide a safety net for them should they fail to achieve success or riches. Much less than freedom, they have embraced the cold chains of serfdom and bowed at the altar of the State, and when you are dependent upon someone or something you are a slave to it.

 

The American people must stop looking to Uncle Sam to do everything for them. Uncle Sam isn’t going to do a damned thing that reduces the power its agents already hold over you; all you can do is put of some kind of barrier that blocks, or nullifies, their ability to exercise that power, unless and until that power grows so obtrusive and repressive that it is intolerable by way of its arbitrary rule and acts of tyranny, rather than representation. At this point, freedom loving Free Born Americans worth their salt will Rise Up In Armed Rebellion.

 

Rather than allow matters to progress to that point, if Americans want to curb the influence of the federal government — Uncle Sam — in their respective States, they do not need to focus their attention upon candidates too focused on attempting to reduce the power wielded by Uncle Sam. Americans must choose and elect candidates who will tell Uncle Sam that he has no jurisdiction in their Sovereign State, especially when our federal government enforces UnConstitutional junk “law”, illegally and extralegally, such as the President Obama’s “Dreamer” executive order, Obamacare, homosexual marriage and abortion.

 

As noted in Section 177 of the 16th American Jurisprudence:

 

“An unconstitutional statute, though having the form and name of law, is in reality no law, but is wholly void, and ineffective for any purpose; since it’s unconstitutionality dates from the time of its enactment, and not merely from the date of the decision so branding it. An unconstitutional law, in legal contemplation, is as inoperative as if it had never been passed. Such a statute leaves the question that it purports to settle just as it would be had the statute not been enacted.

 

Such [Blog Editor: The versions of this quote found by Editor does not have “Such” but rather the word “Since”.] an unconstitutional law is void, the general principles follows that it imposes no duties, confers no rights, creates no office, bestows no power or authority on anyone, affords no protection and justifies no acts performed under it.

 

A void act cannot be legally consistent with a valid one. An unconstitutional law cannot operate to supersede any existing valid law. Indeed, insofar as a statute runs counter to the fundamental law of the land, it is superseded thereby.

 

No one is bound to obey an unconstitutional law and no courts are bound to enforce it.”

 

Americans must awaken to the fact that our federal government no longer serves the limited purposes for which it was established. It is a government that consistently and regularly encroaches on our rights of life, liberty and property, ignoring or dismissing them altogether, just as we witnessed in recent years, with its attempted overreach on our Second Amendment and numerous violations of the Fourth Amendment and the abuse of Cliven Bundy’s family and the Hammond family and the murder of Robert Lavoy Finicum at the hands of its agents, using force when it has no authority or right to do so.

 

Uncle Sam derives its power by way of our consent. If we simply withdrew that consent, saying “I will no longer comply”, in a unified voice, whenever our federal government violates one of our God-given Inalienable Rights, there wouldn’t be a damned thing they could to about it.

 

If liberty is the primary reason for which all governments should serve to protect, the American people need to place that first and foremost on their list of priorities, so their children’s children and generations beyond will grow up in a land of true freedom and liberty. And they must stop voting for any candidate who seeks to limit liberty, or will not defend liberty to their last dying gasp.

Kim Clement: Creative Imagination


Kim & Jane Clement sm

John R. Houk

© October 14, 2012

 

I just read something that is sure to stir up some guff about New Age pretending to be Christian and thus it must be all heresy.

 

What are you talking about John?

 

I just read an awesome essay – one might even call it a prophetic essay. The controversial Prophet is Kim Clement.

 

Clement writes about creative molding via a creative imagination. Now if you think us Word of Faith guys are in the heresy accusation camp by trusting the Word of God is true when it reads:

 

20 Now in the morning, as they passed by, they saw the fig tree dried up from the roots.21 And Peter, remembering, said to Him, “Rabbi, look! The fig tree which You cursed has withered away.”

 

22 So Jesus answered and said to them, “Have faith in God. 23 For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. 24 Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them. (Emphasis Mine – Mark 11: 20-24 NKJV)

 

You see no matter how much someone labels a Word of Faith person a heretic, the fact is the Word of God (in Jesus speaking red if you have a red letter Bible) tells us Believers have creative power with their words. Now one thing is true that believing and speaking has been so abused that way too many Christians have driven off the road and ran into a ditch. If one attempts to speak a creative word that does not line up with the Holy Bible (i.e. to say the Will of God) one is taking a bad path that will knock one into the ditch of disaster.

 

Clement somewhat embarks on the Mark 11 path with the concept of “creative imagination”. Frankly I am unclear on what Scripture Clement uses to validate creative imagination. This prophetic essay is very deep and with some meditative Bible knowledge you will discover some archetypes that are analogies for creative moments.

 

3 But he who prophesies speaks edification and exhortation and comfort to men. 4 He who speaks in a tongue edifies himself, but he who prophesies edifies the church. 5 I wish you all spoke with tongues, but even more that you prophesied; for[a] he who prophesies is greater than he who speaks with tongues, unless indeed he interprets, that the church may receive edification. (1 Cor. 14: 3-5 NKJV)

 

New Testament prophecy has a primary purpose. I believe this a good Word; however if you think Clement misses the mark here, without using past prophetic-seer moments viewed as not happening, let me know.

Elijah List

 

From the desk of Steve Shultz:

 

My dear friend Kim Clement is a prophet to the nations and I appreciate all of his words over the US and Israel in this hour – we’ve GOT to stand with Israel. His latest word is deep, to say the least and you may need to read it a couple of times to take it all in, but it’s well worth it.

 

Also, would you do me a favor? Please help us keep sending you words by buying as many prophetic items as you are able to from the Elijah List at this link: www.elijahshopper.com. You might save a buck by buying it online through Amazon, but you’ll help us build the Kingdom more effectively if you buy things through us. Will you consider that “proposal”? Thank you for supporting us!

Kim Clement:

What In the World Have I Created?

 

John 17 I have manifested Your name to the men whom You have given Me out of the world. They were Yours, You gave them to me, and they have kept Your word…

 

But now I come to You, and these things I speak in the world, that they may have My joy fulfilled in themselves.

 

I have given them Your word; and the world has hated them because they are not of the world, just as I am not of the world.

 

I do not pray that You should take them out of the world, but that You should keep them from the evil one.

 

Jesus (the Word) was not sent to the earth at the most perfect time with the most perfect environment. The Bible says, “One day, however it happened, Jesus invited Peter, Andrew, James and John to follow Him.”What would our world be like if that had never happened? These were not perfect creations, but human beings with many flaws. At the end of their time together they had not caused much of a stir. If you could have been there on that day after Jesus died…if you could have seen the Roman Empire and its Pax Romana, its 250,000 miles of roads, its extensions from Asia to Africa to Europe, and its history of dominance and social status that was envied throughout the Mediterranean…and then if you could have seen a few dozen failed, frightened, demoralized, defeated, confused former followers of an executed carpenter… If someone had asked you to place a bet on which group would still be around in 2,000 years, all the smart money would have been placed on the Roman Empire…which is now EXTINCT. God took what He had created and formed something so powerful that these few chosen disciples turned the world upside down…or right side up.

 

What You Have Created Cannot Be Uncreated. So What Can Be Done About Our Present Pathetic State?

 

The trouble is that we have been in a pathetic state of maintaining. To maintain means “to keep in existence or to keep in a specified state or position.” There is a huge difference in “keeping in existence” and “bringing into existence.” As I’ve taught before, there are two realms of divine truth: historical truth and creative truth. Both are equally as important, and in fact, the one cannot exist without the other. The trouble is that historical truth is easier to maintain as it has already been born and is established. Another term that I use for historical truth is “truth in the tomb.”

 

Gaston Bachelard wrote, “One must always maintain one’s connection to the past and yet ceaselessly pull away from it. To remain in touch with the past requires a love of memory. To remain in touch with the past requires a constant imaginative effort.” Creative truth, on the other hand, removes all of these efforts, and instead of imaginative effort, we are now plummeted into a whole new world of creative imagination.

 

Nothing Exists Until Or Unless It Is Observed

 

Prophecy presents an image to the hearer. One of the words for image in the Greek means “logos.” Remember, the divine word/image is a seed that, once planted in your soul, will grow. How does it grow? In the imagination! So, once the future is revealed to an individual, the next step is creative observation.

 

Observation Is Creative

 

How is it that people keep thinking about what they don’t want even when they’re hugely motivated to manifest something new? It’s simple. What you don’t want has affected you because you’ve experienced it in the past, dragged it into your present, and therefore it is foremost in your mind. We have to ceaselessly pull away from it. You must refrain from thinking and focusing on its continuation. Before something that you desire can manifest, you have to discontinue manifesting what you DON’T desire becoming or being. Let me give an example. Why is that when my intention is wealth, I’m still poor? Why is it that when I pray for and desire a new career, I’m still stuck in the old one? There is no such thing as observation without creation. Don’t spend time observing your present misery!

 

There has to be a MANIFESTATION of your IMAGE – your prophetic word. What has God shown you about yourself that is NOT manifesting yet? Write it down.

 

Uncreating Is Impossible

 

You cannot “un-create” what you’ve already created (or manifested). Remember, in every deed there is a seed. Our actions create our future, good or bad. It’s your choice. Someone once wrote, “Today is the tomorrow you dreamed about yesterday.” We can add to this, “Today is the tomorrow you prayed about yesterday.” However, prayer is not enough. Faith without works is dead. Deeds make seeds. Once something has manifested in your reality, it’s too late to un-create it, and the more you OBSERVE it, the more it is perpetuated. How about destroying the bad you’ve created? It’s not that easy. Well, how about recreating what you’ve created? I love the words that God speaks through Isaiah about Jacob:

 

“But now, thus says the Lord, who created you, O Jacob, and He who formed you, O Israel…” (Isaiah 43:1).

 

Take note that God says that He created Jacob. Remember, Jacob was a supplanter (schemer/deceiver). To supplant means “to take the place of another.” In fact, he ran from his brother who desired to kill him and ran from his house after deceiving his own father. God didn’t kill Jacob, but he “formed” ISRAEL out of this mess. Think about this for a minute. God is the Creator and creates Jacob who turns out to be…not so nice. God has a plan. Form something out of this mess. And He does a great job of it! We need to follow this example and possibly take note of the mess that we’ve created and form something beautiful out of it. God could easily have looked at Jacob lying on the ground in the city of Luz and chosen to wipe him out. That’s the easy way out.

 

Let’s look at the words “created” and “formed.” Every day we create life and/or death by our words and our actions. In the Hebrew language the word create is “bara,” a primitive root that basically means “to create, to select and to feed.” So, when you create something by your actions, you have the choice to continue feeding it in its present state or recreate it. The word “form” used in Isaiah is “yatsar,” which means “to squeeze (into shape), to mold into a form; figuratively, to DETERMINE.” Another explanation is “to place purpose into something.” Look at some of the things you’ve created and are in existence today because of your bad choices and actions. Do you see any purpose in it? Then make purpose. Shape it.

 

The story of one of the greatest presidents of Harvard College, Charles William Eliot, is worth recalling. Born with a serious facial disfigurement, he discovered as a young man that nothing could be done about it, and he must go through life with this mark. When his mother brought to him that tragic truth, it was indeed “the dark hour of his soul.”

 

His mother told him, “My son, it is not possible for you to get rid of this handicap. We have consulted the best surgeons, and they say that nothing can be done. But it is possible for you, with God’s help, to grow a mind and soul so big that people will forget to look at your face.”

 

It’s impossible to focus all your attention on the future without thinking of the present. How can you not think about being broke if you don’t have the money to pay your accounts? That’s where the prophetic comes into being, and it works! Even though your history may have brought you present misery, your destiny can bring you manifested freedom; and once you taste of that freedom, you are driven and motivated to move toward your goal rapidly. So we are stuck with our present situation – how do we make it go away?

 

As I said, you can’t un-create it, but you can form something out of it, give it a purpose, and actually conquer it. The beginning of prophetic imagination is to begin CONQUERING your mountain. A mountain doesn’t always disappear, but it can be conquered. Step-by-step, foot-by-foot, it can be conquered.

 

What did Caleb do at the age of 85? He said to Joshua, “Now therefore, give me this mountain” (Joshua 14:12). The mountain was filled with giants, but Caleb knew that unless he conquered the mountain and took control of it, he would never rule over it. If your mountain won’t move, then conquer it!

 

We are focusing on conquering our mountain in 2012, and I believe with my whole heart that many of you will be manifesting freedom from debt, bit by bit, quicker than you could imagine.

 

God’s intention has to catch your attention. Once it’s caught your attention, it must be your top priority so that His intention can manifest in your life.

Kim Clement: The life of Kim Clement is an expression that has defined “the prophet” for the modern era. This has made his journey unique; a journey that has taken his inspired message to schools and colleges, churches and synagogues, alleyways and prison cells. Kim’s prophetic gift is a magnet that has drawn a broad audience, as he has whispered to kings and inspired prisoners; his path through life continues to be an exciting adventure. His diverse and extemporaneous perspective has gained him notoriety that transcends culture, race and religion, placing him onto a world platform. He has performed at the Rose Bowl Stadium in California, Times Square in New York City, Mt. Carmel in Israel, and even the steps of the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C.

Lia is a fifteen year old gal defending babies from being butchered by abortion. Below is a brief United Families International blog post introducing Lia which I will follow by the video on the UFI blog post. This was posted at UFI on June 24, 2011.

Are the Unborn Human?

 

The answer to some questions seem so straightforward and simple.  Are the unborn human?   As 15-year-old Lia points out, that question is the crux of the abortion debate.   With amazing easy and articulation, Lia lays out the pro-life arguments for you in this video.  Enjoy and share.
