The Year is 2017: The Arkansas King-Lee Holiday Debate- REALLY? -We are Way Overdue in Getting This One Over and Done

Arkansas... (and this means- ALL OF US who live in this great state), we are well past the time of patience having time to do what the meaning and purpose of 'patience' is truly assigned to do.  My first question regarding this 'way past due' debate/delay on separating the King-Lee Holiday in the ARK is this- When will we learn and stop being 'ever-learning' and never coming to the knowledge of truth?  This is what the Apostle Paul shared with his spiritual son, Timothy in his New Testament writing that applied to those in his day, but it is so relevant and applicable to our present day in Arkansas.

When we see the title/salutation 'Reverend' addressing Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., it signifies that we are giving honor to a minister/pastor/preacher/prophet.  When you add the significance of a having a Federal Holiday in his honor for 34 years (which was achieved through the intense disciplines and scrutiny of much prayer, protest and legislation), it's pretty simple to deduce why this holiday should be exclusive to his honor.  And while it took from 1983-2000 for all states to come online and honor this day, sadly, Arkansas continues to join Mississippi and Alabama in a three way tie for last place in giving the exclusive honor to Rev. Dr. King on his day.

My final question- How does anyone conjure up rationale to add 'anyone' and place them on such a day of honor without equal scrutiny and likewise achievement of the same status before even thinking of assigning them a dual celebration on the Federal Holiday in that persons honor? 

So yes- Arkansas for the sake of moving up to the respectable national code of honor and ethics, let's not let this moment further delay us and continue our reputation of being last to come to the light of progress and understanding in matters as significant and substantive as this.

My prayer and ongoing advocacy from every post that I represent, is for Arkansas to do 'whatever it takes' to get this legislation passed. Will my prayer be answered with this passing before 2018?  Yes and I say yes even if it takes a Special Session to get it done.  I will share the prophetic rationale in an upcoming post.

A Black Pastor Speaks... ‘Why Donald Trump’s Victory Opens the Door for a G.O.D. Party -The God Factor: From Pulpit to President'


Black Pastors Speak Out ...          ‘Why Donald Trump’s Victory Opens the Door for a G.O.D. Party -The God Factor: From Pulpit to President'

There is always a "God Factor," the question is, do we see it and do we know how to optimize it when present? But beware- the God Factor is time sensitive. We have less than four years to get our 'a' together. (oh yes, the 'a' stands for actions) 
Here's the unveiling: Before we give up on God as it relates to how President-elect Donald Trump makes his way to the Oval Office is one of the mysteries that God reveals in time. The scriptures are clear that this has happened before and continues to happen today. Jesus says it this way... "But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear. For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them.” Matthew 13:16-17 KJV 
Today I begin posting and broadcasting on my weekly radio show, TCAA Radio- Monday's 9AM CDThow I see the door open for a kingdom leader to lead the nation from the office of the President of the United States of America. Please feel free to call in and share your thoughts or questions at 866.531.2359. The time is from 9am-10am CDT.

The "March-ON Arkansas" August 28, 2016


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

The “March-On… Arkansas”
53 Years Later, Arkansas… America— Our Legacy: Where Are We Now?  Rev. Dr.  Martin Luther King's "I Have a Dream" Speech Resounded and 'Day of Empowerment' at Arkansas State Capitol with Convention to Follow 

The nation is in an uproar.  Hate is at an all time high and honor is at an all time low.  God is talking.  Where are the preachers?  What more do we need to see?  Who will lead us?  Where is the model of hope?  Hear our cry oh lord but not only do we need you to hear us, let the people who love you come together as one!  

Little Rock, AR July 9, 2016 – The 53rd anniversary of Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s "I Have A Dream" speech will be resounded with a day themed, The Legacy Assignment 2016: Reflecting the Past… Inspecting the Present… and Projecting the Future. The event is set for August 28 at 6pm on the steps of the State Capitol with the “March-On Arkansas” declaring Arkansas upwards and onwards.

Fifty-three years ago on August 28, 1963 at the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom, Rev. Dr. King delivered his most famous prophecy on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. This salute both uplifts the message of Rev. King as well as issue a relevant call to action in honor of the slain biblical rights preacher, pastor and prophet who gave the ultimate sacrifice by laying down his life. 

Organizers, the Arkansas NAACP, The College of Aspiring Artists and the Original PBICVR Kingfest convey that in this critical time of race relations, riots and outcries, a need for love and non-violent principles, as exemplified by Rev. Dr. King and leaders in his day is urgent. Furthermore, that Arkansas and the nation are in urgent need of modeling and putting on display the principles taught by Dr. King.  The salute will feature national and international speakers, preachers and creative talents who will challenge the nation from Arkansas to do what is right and work forward with a legacy initiative to keep it right. 

The theme in part, “Reflecting the Past… Inspecting the Present… and Projecting the Future” is a continuation from the first national tribute held in Memphis, Tennessee on the first Federal Holiday of the birthday of Rev. Dr. King. Today, with an intense focus on healing, reconciliation, restoration and an updated movement of empowerment, it is being brought to Arkansas by the original producers. The Legacy Assignment 2016 Initiative focuses on a statewide effort committed to uplifting a positive image of Arkansas’ legacy on family and race and brings up to 12 Legacy Cities from across the state that will stand in solidarity both at the Capitol and then back to their cities as Arkansas Legacy Cities all year long. 

Eight years ago on, August 28, 2008, at the William J. Clinton Presidential Center in Little Rock, the William J. Clinton Foundation and the University of Arkansas Clinton School of Public Service sponsored the 45th Anniversary Salute in partnership with The College of Aspiring Artists for one of the opening chapters for a documentary film.  On this same day, Senator Barack Obama received the nomination for President of the United States at the Democratic Convention in Denver, Colorado and later this same year, 40 years beyond the final Prophecy of King, Mr. Obama would be elected the 1st African American President of these United States of America. What will happen this time? Organizers are inviting spiritual leaders, corporate, government, business, youth and community leaders along with concerned individuals to partner and sign on.  The speaker/talent lineup will be announced on August 1st.
