Resurrection & The "Sign Of Jonah"

Matthew 12:38-4038-Then certain of the scribes and of the Pharisees answered, saying, Master, we would see a sign from thee. 39-But he answered and said unto them, An evil and adulterous generation seeketh after a sign; and there shall no sign be given to it, but the sign of the prophet Jonas: 40-For as Jonas was three days and three nights in the whale's belly; so shall the Son of man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.

"We are convinced that the best explanation for these unusual epigraphic features in the Talpiot 
“patio” tomb is its proximity to the Jesus family tomb less than 45 meters away. What we apparently
have is a family connected to the Jesus movement who reaches beyond the standard burial norms of the 
Jewish culture of the period to express itself individually in these unique ways."

Professor, and historian Dr. James D. Tabor, University Of North Caroline Charlotte, and a team of archaeologists discovered what is being hailed as the earliest extra-biblical evidence that there was a belief in a resurrection among the first century believers of Christianity consistent with the gospel teachings of the "sign of Jonah" referenced by Jesus in the narratives of the gospel writers.

Hip-Hop, Idolatry & The Church Pt. 19 ~ The Ritual Sacrifice

In the first report from Nancy Grace on HLN after the death of Whitney Houston, she raised certain questions regarding the nature of death and the body of Whitney. When it was said that Whitney had been found in the tub, Nancy raised the speculation that someone had possibly "pushed her" beneath the water in the bathtub. In addition, she also raised the question of how did anyone know that someone else wasn't with her at the moment of death? To me, this made sense, because Nancy, as a trained investigator and lawyer, wasn't quick to make the assumption that everything was as it had been initially reported. After all, for years, according to her bodyguards, Whitney was never left alone for more than 10 minutes in the bathroom, consistently told to take showers instead of baths and checked on regularly just to insure her safety and health. Why did it all breakdown a that exact moment in that specific fashion?

Where Are The Witnesses?

We now find out that Whitney's body was never witnessed by any authority to be in the bathtub at all. According to reports, her body was found by emergency personnel in less than 10 minutes after the call, laying on the floor in the living room area of her hotel room, not even on the bathroom floor. Supposedly she had been pulled out of the tub by those who had found her. However, doesn't it seem strange to pull her out and keep pulling her out until she gets into the living room? Why not place her on the bed or a couch if the aim was to get her to a more comfortable place? Why the living room floor, and what advantage did the living room have as opposed to the bathroom floor if we're dealing with an emergency?

Who And What Was Really Celebrated At The Party?  

As stated, interestingly enough, Whitney was to be featured and honored at a pre-Grammy party. However, while she lay there on the floor, at 3:55 PM, after what is reportedly less than 10 minutes of resuscitation efforts by EMT's, until nearly 3:00AM the next day, a party took place under the feet of them that stood over her dead body, under the direction of Clive Davis, the man that she most trusted in the world, named the Godfather of her daughter, and that had earned billions of dollars off of her success.

You GO Maryland...In God We Trust!

Now, Illinois, are YOU afraid to fight? I'm not!


In The White House:

President Obama, while implementing his version of the doctrine of plurality for America, consistently refers to "E Pluribus Unum" or "Out of many one" as if it were the national motto of the United States. In reality, the Official National Motto of the United States is "In God We Trust", which was adopted in 1956. Of note, the effort by the homosexual and anti-religious and atheistic right has failed at every attempt to have our official national motto removed, repealed or replaced.

Why would anyone want it removed or changed, because it's only a motto?

Because the very notion of "God" not only acknowledges the shared American heritage and history of the reason that America was founded, but it also suggests that transcendent and objective moral values exist. If transcendent moral values exist, then there is first, a such thing as inalienable rights, (which was acknowledged by American's Founding Fathers) and those truths cannot be legislated or delivered by the whim of the state. Those values and rights transcend the state. In other words the state or government of men cannot and does not validate or dispense such personal freedoms, rights and values as they can only be given by the lawgiver of transcendent values. To state it differently, truth exists without the validation or sanction of the state or the government. 

As it pertains to marriage, the truth of the institution is self evident and perversions of it are manifest. No single individual on this earth arrived by process of a homosexual union. To the contrary every one alive today arrived by process of a genetic pairing of a male and a female. This is a transcendent truth. The foundation of American society rests upon this truth and should not, and does not, deserve to be threatened by what can only be considered a perversion of truth and at best a social diversity demanding the exaltation to transcendent truth which it does not deserve. It demands establishment within the construct of the law. Although law may establish social rights, it in no wise establishes truth or right moral values. 

In Illinois:

Illinois Governor Pat Quinn
Civil Unions are already the law in the State of Illinois adopted under Governor Pat Quinn. Recently, openly gay state Reps. Greg Harris, Deb Mell and Kelly Cassidy, introduced the Religious Freedom and Marriage Fairness Act that would provide that all state laws "applicable to marriage apply equally to marriages of same-sex and different-sex couples and their children" and granting them "the same benefits, protections, and responsibilities under law," according to the Huffington Post Chicago by way of The Windy City Times.

As you can see, these reps are not only openly gay themselves, but they are also blind to the fact that homosexual marriage isn't about an equal access issue. It's a moral issue. It's a truth issue. This is about transcendent values, rights and personal freedoms that the state or government cannot confer or expand without effecting and attempting to remove and eliminate the same standard of values that they claim to hold so dearly. If marital rights anywhere can be expanded or denied by and by an act of legislation then marriage is not a transcendent value or right. It is simply something delivered by moral relativists acting within their time based on their subjective opinion of the way things should be. 

However, the evidence and testimony of history, empirical evidence of genetics and arguments of philosophical morality all vie in favor the existence of transcendent objective moral values and truths and  marriage between a man and a woman as an institution itself. As stated, values and truths are not and cannot be delivered by the state, but can only be delivered by God. Since that is the case, these values cannot be conferred by men. The boundaries can only be delivered by acknowledgement of what we already know to be the truth. That:

Marriage is and only should be between ONE MAN and ONE WOMAN. 

This is a transcendent value which our generation cannot afford to compromise no matter what power hungry, immoral and greedy politicians and a legislating judiciary wish to assert. All men have a right to exist and enjoy personal freedoms. However, we can easily and readily acknowledge that all institutions are NOT open or accessible to all men simply by virtue of their existence. To assume that all men have access to all institutions simply because they exist is like setting up an endless amount of dominoes that when pushed, will only continue to cause more and more to fall. In this case, if we accept that homosexual marriage is a transcendent moral right, accessible to all men simply because they exist, then the flood gate is opened to any arrangement deemed to be essential to the existence of any man. Arrangements such as that of polygamy (which has a longer history than homosexuality), polyamory, pedophilia and a host of other deviant sexually diverse relationships would have to be acceptable institutions because men exist and demand acknowledgement of such actions. It would only be a matter of time and political meandering before these acts and others are legislated by moral relativists giving in to whims, feelings and desires as well.   

Proverbs 16:25 ~ "There is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death."

Hip-Hop, Idolatry & The Church Pt. 17 ~ Nicki Minaj ~ Who Is Roman?

Recently entertainer Nicki Minaj claimed that she was possessed by an alter ego (DEMON) name Roman Zolinski. This is her video explaining who Roman is and why he is inside of her:



I can say that I wasn't aware of Roman's existence until the 2012 Grammys. As we can see in our second post on this subject, demonic activity was in full effect. The question is, who is Roman and why does he exist? I believe I may have some valuable insights into both of those questions.

A Bishops Final Message

2 Timothy 4: 6-8 6-For I am now ready to be offered, and the time of my departure is at hand. 7-I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith: 8-Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing.
The pastor of the New Jerusalem Church Of God In Christ of Virginia Beach, Virginia passed away just minutes after delivering this final message to his congregation.

Video Archive can be found HERE This is part of what he said in his last message:


"Just because you came to church today doesn't mean death is not out there waiting for you,"..."Some of us think that we're going to live forever, Because you're not sick, because you have good health, and you think you have plenty of time. But you don't know where death is standing."



While preaching the message of holiness, Bishop Thoroughgood was the pastor of some of the more famous persons in modern hip hop. Secular stars such as Teddy Riley, Pharell Williams, Missy Elliot and Timbaland claimed the Bishop as their spiritual father. Hopefully they will remember what the Bishop taught and become faithful to it. 

Cherishing his memory are his wife of 39 years, Mrs. Ernestine Thoroughgood, his sons Bertram, Emmanuel, and Jonnathan, one daughter, Mekia Bonita, five grandchildren and the congregation of Saints at the New Jerusalem COGIC. 

The online memorial can be found HERE

Blessed!
