This second anniversary of Ade’s death is very significant. Thanks to Father God, Christ, and the Holy Spirit, I have done something, which on May 2, 2017, I didn’t think it would have ever been possible. I have survived two whole years without my oldest son, who was and still is someone as enormously important to me as life itself.
On April 30th, I will forever be reminded that this day in 2017 was the last time
Ade enjoyed his birthday in the land of the living. Additionally, I will forever be
reminded that the one flower I would love to see in full bloom in May—my son,
Ade—was instead plucked from the garden of life on May 2nd.
Spiritual restorations are not spiritual revivals. According to Scripture, spiritual revivals have always been the times of vast outpourings of the Holy Spirit. In the Holy Bible, there are four great outpourings (spiritual revivals) of the Holy Spirit that are found in the Book of Acts. Moreover, spiritual revivals or outpourings of the Holy Spirit ONLY poured out on willing and cooperative reborn and saved souls.
March is my birthday month. The 6th of March is my birthday. God willing, this year I will turn 68.
King Solomon was very wise. There really isn’t anything new in our world today. Not hatred! Not injustice! Not racism! Not sexism! Not ageism! Not religious persecution! Not political biases! Not partiality! Not anything that human beings communicate—especially if what they say or do expresses something negative or anything that is in opposition to God’s intended purposes for humanity.
Profound truth that is hard-hitting to most people, believers in Christ included, often isn’t readily accepted; that is because insightful, uncomfortable truths expose who people are—hypocrites. It’s amazing how that exposure can be achieved in just three lines.
Fantasists are dreamers who create fantasies. Divorced individuals often fantasize about their marriages. Some divorced people who are poets often write about their fantasies in their poetry. They write about fantasies that can be realistic, unrealistic, or doubtful possibilities.
One hundred eleven years later, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority is still going strong. As of June 2018, Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. has nearly 300,000 college-trained members who are still committed to sisterhood, scholarship, and service to all mankind.
Our Lord wants us to be more than just believers who qualify for God’s Fire Insurance Policy. For sure, Christ wants to be more to us—who are His Body—than just someone who saves us from the end-time Wrath of God, as well as saves us from the Lake of Fire’s eternal punishment.
The Black is Beautiful movement is about more than symbols of power and beauty—about more than African-Americans’ diverse complexions, facial features, hairstyles, and cultural consciousness in a multi-cultural society. Black is Beautiful, as a concept, is about how being beautiful is natural to African-Americans’ souls.
