Part II. All Lives Have Dignity- But All Lives Are Not Lived Dignified: Black Lives-All Lives Matter-The Gospel According to the God of Rev.Dr.MLK-jr

A Black Man Speaks- The Gospel According to the God of Rev. Dr. MLK-jr  Some/many blacks are saying… Black Lives Matter- I ask… When?  Why? When does it matter? Why do we need to place emphasis on the ‘black’ and not ‘all’? 

Why do black people kill black people?  Why do black people wait until a crisis arises to come together? I have answers and so do others.  Which ones are correct?  #wethepreachers 

I’m convinced that the healing required to move blacks from the #blacklivesmatter focus to a broader cry and embrace that #allliveshavedignity rests in the hands of leaders who can see and move in a ‘kingdom of God’ mindset.  When will we learn and stop being ever-learning? 

My hope and prayer is that we in America and especially those who say that we are Christians will give more honor to all mankind ‘so that all mankind’ can see that all mankind in the image and eyes of God our Creator has dignity.  

This year I’m celebrating 25 years of producing legacy tributes from notable venues, radio and television specials, etc., honoring the Prophet, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., from Memphis to DC including the opening tribute of the National Civil Rights Museum on the Federal Holiday in 1992. I  along with my staff and  students from my college have honored many leaders including members of the King children and have invested tens of thousands of dollars and am glad to do so. 

Regarding the #blacklivesmatter focus: What would Rev. Dr. King see, what would he say, what would he do?  He would see honor at an all times low.  When we don’t give honor, we teach dishonor.  We have too much selfish pride in our nation.  Life has little value in the minds of many African Americans. Why?  Often because we have been disregarded but so often because we disregard ourselves.  

THE FACTS: When it’s time to honor Rev. Dr. King (at least on the Federal Holiday in his honor) - where are the preachers-where are AND where have the black lives matter leaders been? So often we are absent but we have the audacity to say black lives matter.  So again, when and why? Blessed be God for the preachers and leaders such as the NAACP and others who continue to advocate the advancement of all people. 

A revisit of Rev. Dr. King's famous “I Have a Dream” speech/prophecy convinces me to say that he would understand that this  #blacklivesmatter focus is motivated by a concept that I will encapsulate as- Good Intentions and Bad Ideas- and I would conclude by saying- Good Intentions and Bad Ideas Must Become- Good Intentions and God Ideas. This is our only hope. 

No, not at the end of the day- but at ‘the end of God’s review-today… God who is no respecter of person declares that #allliveshavedignity but all lives are not lived, dignified. 

Part I. "ALL LIFE" HAS DIGNITY- But all Lives are Not Lived Dignified.

On the questions of coming together beyond our denominations/race/ethnicity- the hate- the violence- (overall) and yes... black on black crime- poverty- uplifting the President- (no not for the politics but for what God has done in this nation to give honor to whom honor is due), and  yes- those who are being wrongfully and unjustly punished- (and oh... we must pray 'for all' who are in authority). Where are we?  Let your voice be heard. Post this up and let's talk it out on the upcoming "We The Preachers" Radio Special coming October 19th at 9am CDT www.thecollegeofaspiringartists.education  (click on "Listen Now") 

We are better together- way better and this is where we will talk about it.  #wethepreachers

The Outcome- 


Arkansas "Give Us This Day: MLK Holiday Roundtable 2016 Begins 

On Friday, September 11, 2015 at the Holiday Inn Presidential in Little Rock, Arkansas, the leaders of the Arkansas NAACP convened for the 70th Annual Convention.  The convention kicked off with an 8AM  AR 9.11 Call to Prayer Breakfast and Roundtable.  The theme, “GIVE US THIS DAY” focused on both a humble request and thanks to God for his grace and provisions, but also a strong decree requesting state leaders to make ready and pray forward the plans and the works that must take place for Arkansas to celebrate the MLK Holiday 2016 as an exclusive celebration and thereby no longer being a part of a dual celebration with the Robert E. Lee Day.  

Arkansas’ Governor, Asa Hutchinson and statewide leaders from the arenas of clergy, legislators, faith-based organizations, community, corporate and youth leaders, and activists unanimously agreed that MLK Holiday 2016 and beyond should be an exclusive day of honor for Rev. Dr. King. To God be the Glory. This and more was a part of the discussion and working strategies at the prayer breakfast and the new roundtable that has now been activated.

ALL LIFE HAS DIGNITY- but all lives are not lived dignified. From the G.O.D. view- If you are like many people of love, faith, strength and of a sound mind - you are sick and tired of “the sick and tired.”        Yes! I’m a black man and I concur that ‘black lives matter’ BUT so does all lives matter.  When I/you/me have an injured part of our body, yes- that part often needs/requires urgent attention but we know that it’s not the only part of the body. 

Take away the head when the leg is broken, the eyes when the ears are deafened and what have you? A body that needs to work together to be sure that the injured/damaged part can get the best treatment in order to bring about recovery, healing and restoration for the good of the entire body (nation).
What happens when we who say we are Christians truly believe and practice the word of God and remember that from ONE BLOOD- call created all of us to dwell of the face of His earth together? Maybe the end(ing) of a great amount of divisiveness in our cities/communities/nation/world would occur. Maybe we will finally learn and stop being every-learning.

Are injured black lives requiring urgent care? For sure- but who are the ones inflicting the injuries, how and why? How do we bring dignity and honor back to all of God’s creations? Love is the key.  So yes, let’s get every part/member of the body/nation treated with love honor and dignity- One final note: It’s not about making one race or one nation good again, it’s about all of us- getting “back to God."  And oh yes- It starts with #wethepreachers

"WE THE PREACHERS"


 OUR MESSAGE:

"Want to blame someone for what's wrong in the world- The best place to start is here! 

Yes, this is a call for all preachers to come together as one as we pray the word, do the word and be the word. We point to a day of recent happenings that give us reason and clarity to why "we the preachers" both accept the responsibility for the problem but recognize that collectively we are God's duly ordained servants to bring about the problem-solving.  The Good news is that God has pointed the nation and the world back to His Church and His Preachers.  We are "now ready."

Preacher Redemption Day- June 26, 2015
Whether it’s a flag, same sex unions, cultural/denominational differences, etc. 
         GOOD INTENTIONS AND BAD IDEAS MUST BECOME GOOD INTENTIONS AND GOD IDEAS

THE REMEDY CLAUSE— PSALM 1
Blessed is the one who walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the path of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful; 2 But our delight is in the law of the Lord, And in His law shall we meditate day and night. 3 We shall be like trees planted by the rivers of water that brings forth  fruit in our season, whose leaf also shall not wither; And whatever we do shall prosper.   

IT HAPPENED... GOD'S WORD WAS CONFIRMED and the Eulogy by President Obama was Affirmative... God's Grace is Amazing

“For God so loved the World that “He gave His ONLY begotten SonBut that’s not the ONLY son he gave.”   From Martin King to Trayvon Martin and now.  On June 26, 2015 God is redeeming His Preachers and restoring honor to His Church. It is the Homegoing Service for Reverend-Senator, Pastor Clementa Pinckney and the eulogy will be delivered by the President of the United States of America, Barack Obama.  Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints. The Lord giveth and the Lord God taketh away; Blessed be the name of the Lord—

On June 17, 2015, Reverend-Senator, Pastor Clementa Pinckney and eight others were killed (sacrificed) by a gunman proclaiming hate for African-Americans inside the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina.  This along with a  multiplicity of acts of God is what makes this day so providential and thereby being proclaimed as Preacher Redemption Day.  Visionaries and prophets are continuing to  be prayerful to seek and  understand and interpret the times. Here is my initial  revelation. 

1. The “nine” murders take place in the Church- The landmark and venue that depicts where the body of Christ assembles to worship and celebrate how Jesus sacrificed his life for the sins of the world.  It’s a message to “all of us” that Sovereign God needed to get a very important message to everyone. What better place could He use to pronounce his concerns for His love for His people where the greatest possibility for love, hope, healing and unity could be rightly engaged in the return of a nation back to Him?   The number nine signals the number of months it takes for human life to enter the world from the womb.  It’s time for the Church to have a re-entry moment.   He that hath ears- listen to what the spirit is saying...
2. The Shepherd/Pastor that was slain is both a servant of God and a public servant, a Senator- symbolizing leadership in both the government of God and man. Greater love hath no man than a man who will lay down his life for his friend.
 3. It happens on a Prayer Meeting/Bible Study night- A Holy Night where most often the serious and sincere are intimately gathered. 
4. It happens at a church that references the first place of human creation- African Methodist Episcopal
5. The church will turn 200 years old at the same time when the first African American President leaves office in 2016
6. The President of the United States comes to the church to deliver the eulogy- He on behalf of the nation will give honor to God and his servant and to the Church.  It will be a moment when the spotlight will be on men and women of God who have given and those who are giving their lives to preach the gospel of Jesus Christ.  
7. It happens in a church with the name and mission of Christ- Emmanuel: The name means- God with us.
8. The service will be at the 11am Hour-  Rev. Dr. King denoted this  hour as the most segregated hour of the week. 
9. It happens during the week of Juneteenth and the 150th Anniversary- it’s a sesquicentennial moment for the nation to- “reflect the past, inspect the present and project the future” regarding how far we have or have not come on the race issues since slavery. 
10. It happens during the week of Father’s Day- it’s a day that honors men and boys who on their way to manhood.  It comes at a time when boys and men of color have be intensely challenged and brutalized in unjust ways.  
11. It has the name “Roof” associated with the murder- Roof being a  reference to the “highest point” of a structure- Racism and its ugly head is at a very high level.
12. The flag (Confederate) has been a ‘high’ symbol of racism is on its way down (and out)  and so is the demon of racism, hate and apathy.

Redeeming the Day:  If "We the Preacher" who will be getting a major spotlight on this day will do the following, this will be the day that the Church and the Preacher will see a renewed start to a renewed day in a renewed America:

What we must do:  Repent for how we have been absent and wrong on many fronts which have contributed to a huge gap that has keep many from a “true” relationship with God.  Ezekiel 22:30 gives the "gap analysis" and we must close this gap. This includes but is not limited to dividing  by race, denomination, class, etc. 


NOTE:   Arkansans Offer National Memorial Tribute to the South Carolina Nine Church Massacre
Friday June 26, 2015 Pearcy, Arkansas— A major television production company from New York City came to Arkansas with a five-camera crew on June 26, 27, and 28 to film a documentary featuring local minister Harvey Perdue putting on an old-fashioned Holy Ghost tent revival.  But due to a recent happening in the nation, God has magnified the call for revival in America and many are joining this movement.  On June 17, 2015, Reverend-Senator, Pastor Clementa Pinckney and eight others were killed (sacrificed) by a gunman proclaiming hate for African-Americans inside the Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Charleston, South Carolina. 

On Friday night, the service opened with a Memorial Tribute to the Carolina Nine.   Arkansans gathered at the tent at 7:30pm to pray and engage in a special 30-minute memorial tribute segment presented by organizers who include the National Day of Prayer, FEEL THE MOVEMENT: From Prophecy to Promise and others who joined the nation to see the role of the church and its leaders uniting for a realignment with God.  The number nine signifies the number of months it takes for human life to enter the world from the womb.  It’s time for the Church to have a re-entry moment.
