Satan’s Demonic Gift-of-Music Caused the Bowels of Hell to Enlarge!

Posted by Admin On September - 1 - 2014 Comments Off on Satan’s Demonic Gift-of-Music Caused the Bowels of Hell to Enlarge!

‘It would be wise to examine the content of any music before allowing it to invade the human spirit. Perhaps we should also look at the historical perspective of music and where it truly originated.’

By Rev. Harold E. Bailey

President of Probation Challenge

Before the foundation of the world, Angles worshiped the most high God with holy and righteous music. I hasten to point to the spirit that was gifted for such a great work … the name of this Arch Angles was and continues to be popularly called: Lucifer/Satan/Devil/Beelzebub.

Satan noted his gift of strength and ability to teach and lead. The demonic leader then began to flex the spiritual muscles with intents of leadership.  to believe that he could run the entire show… after all he was the minister-of-music and had influence to a great extend. The good-spirit, then with a mere thought became an evil force to believe … It could  take-over the heavens and be as God!

God knew the very thought of Satan, and before the demon could ever bring his thoughts into reality, the demonic spirit was cast out of heaven and sent as a flaming ball of fire to the earth!

When ask on an occasion, Lucifer, what are you doing? The response was: Going to and through the earth seeking who I can devour! This would be an act of hatred to be inflicted on those that God made of have life in abundance. The intent would be to get back at God the creator of all that was created.

Youth and elders should know that the word Satan comes from Hebrew and means adversary. Satan is the adversary of anybody that tries to follow the true God. Since the creation of man, Satan has tried to deceive humanity into disobeying God and doing what is wrong. He deceived Eve in the Garden of Eden by telling her that she would not die, that she would be like God if she ate of the forbidden fruit. Of course, Satan lied to her. She died, and so have all of her descendants.

Other words used to describe the devil are: Lucifer, serpent, dragon, the strong man, and owner of the house. Lucifer comes from Latin. It means light-bringer. Satan is also called the old serpent because he appeared to Eve in the garden of Eden in the shape of a serpent.  He is also referred to as a dragon.

Question: How could Satan/Lucifer better devour the people that God loves so well, other than the use of his powers through his gift of which is…  MUSIC!

As then, is as now! He continues to seek the ear of those that would listen! The spirit of evil will invade the mind, heart and soul of any human if given an opportunity! Listen to the words and intently hear the ‘musical message’ and better determine whether it be of God or the voice of the deceiver – Satan! The evil-spirit has an intent is to rob, steal and destroy the pleasurable things that God has for those that trust in Him. Those obedient to the sweet voice of the creator… and those that respect the creator’s heavenly music… shall have an inheritance which the Lord God almighty, and will  spend eternity with the creator of the heavens and the earth.

We should be reminded that a place called Hell was originally set-a-side for the fallen Angles, who with Satan left their first love and now considered as demonic spirits. Hell has now swollen its bowels to accommodate those that will not hear and obey the voice of God, thusly, choose to hear the foreign voice of a none caring stranger called Lucifer.

Also be reminded that God is in-fact the creator of life, and He is the landlord over that which he has gifted us to become stewards over.

Would we construct a home and place occupants in it only for them to rob from it, steal from it, kill others who also reside in it? Would we expect those who have been charge to merely tear up the interior and expect not to pay? No, I think not!

The purpose in God allowing us to reside here on this planet called earth, is for inhabitants to have life and life more abundantly. If only we could breath-in and appreciate the true beauty of holiness.

Youth! Satan, the enemy is terribly disgruntled with God because of the ouster from the heavenly host. Now, the evil demonic spirit comes with a plan which involves various sounds and tones which is considered as music – the Satanic brand of destruction. These weird and supernatural message only serves to disfigure the wonderful things that God has created, such as women, marriage and the beauty of life in general. The deprived spirit only wants to get into the lives of those that God made and cares for.

Turn away from Satan… we must resist that demonic force by turning to Christ, then Satan will flee from us!  That evil spirit cannot stand the presence of God his creator.

Carefully inspect all the music you listen to!  Pray that God will reveal what is being said through songs being offered you to swallow! I beg that you consider what you digest that consequently then goes into the precious vessel that God has given us to truly enjoy.

Do Whites Understand Life Better Than Blacks?

Posted by Admin On September - 1 - 2014 Comments Off on Do Whites Understand Life Better Than Blacks?

By Dr. Shane Wall

Dr. Shane Wall

Nationwide (BlackNews.com) — The black community has been outraged by the murder of 18-year-old Michael Brown. Some say officer Darren Wilson shot and killed the young man for no reason. This unnerving situation has exposed conflicting points about how different ethnicities understand society.

Why is it that when a white man is killed by a black man, the white community doesn’t become as enraged as when the opposite occurs? Do whites attain their resolve by saying that they, “…expect this type of behavior from ‘blacks'”? In that case, are whites who call blacks overemotional during these tragedies justified in their assumptions? Is the case of Michael Brown the type of behavior blacks should expect to receive from white officers? The key to analyzing cultural behaviors lies within a sadly overlooked concept I call “understanding.”

In my book, Understanding: All Success is Attained by It, I argue that every action we take stems from how we understand the world. Time brings influence. Influence creates decisions. Decisions father every action, and every action renders a result.

That’s how life works. Understanding life is as simple as knowing who and what we allow to influence our decisions. Be it at home or in the US Senate, decisions force each of us to live someone else’s view of what life should be. Understanding is the DNA of the choices we make. Cultures are ultimately formed by how we collectively understand.

The outrage in the black community stems from how we understand the role of African-Americans in society. For centuries, blacks have been presented a vivid picture of inferiority to whites.

History has taught African-Americans to struggle and fight to obtain freedom so, when injustices occur, the community is enraged and social unrest erupts in an attempt to hold on to precious freedom.

On the other hand, when a black man murders a white man, the white community does not run to the streets in protest and looting because they’ve experienced a different side of American history. So, they respond accordingly.

Tensions rise when one group expects another culture to understand life according to their point of view. The reason we still have racial prejudice in America isn’t merely because of hate, but because we tend to only look at situations and people by how our own culture judges circumstances.

To eliminate cultural, racial, and ethnic barriers we need to empathetically seek to understand one another outside our own cultural lenses. Understanding is not like opportunity, because it doesn’t knock. On the contrary, understanding stands by in plain sight, waiting to see who will recognize it, call it out, grasp it and share it. Understanding evaluates the conduct of everyone equally.

Unfortunately, during events like the Michael Brown incident, instead of understanding, confusion and speculation are the usual first responders on the scene of social unrest. For instance, another Darren Wilson, a black 18-year veteran police sergeant in the St. Louis, Missouri area, began to receive hate messages from the public when Ferguson, MO Police Chief Thomas Jackson announced the name of officer who shot and killed Michael Brown.

A part of our society responds to tragedy with such indecency because some believe that hatred is the best way to handle dark times. Understanding is not birthed by what is said or even shown, but always by what is believed. Belief, an internal value system, teaches us to understand the world through faith or fear, love or hatred, trust or suspicion.

Instead of consoling, praying for, and hearing out the man many thought was the man who shot Michael, several pursued to tear him down. Today, several in our culture are convinced that seeking understanding through destructive measures is the proper course to take. Death threats and more murders will do no justice to Brown or anyone else for that matter.

True justice comes by the understanding that goes beyond one’s preconceived notions. While tragedy affects communities differently, the color of an individual’s skin plays no role in understanding. The human tendency is to act on what is believed, and what is believed becomes the understanding one holds as truth. Whether black or white, whoever can seek absolute truth, regardless of a previously formed opinion, can find and disclose a solution to virtually any problem.

This Labor Day, Let’s Talk About the Minimum Wage: President Obama’s Weekly Address

Posted by Admin On September - 1 - 2014 Comments Off on This Labor Day, Let’s Talk About the Minimum Wage: President Obama’s Weekly Address

WASHINGTON, DC —In this week’s address, the President wished Americans a Happy Labor Day weekend, highlighted the important economic progress we’ve made, and reaffirmed his commitment to accelerate our progress and ensure that our growing economy fuels a strong middle class. To do this, the President reiterated that Congress should do right by hardworking Americans across the country and raise the minimum wage and he praised the 13 states and Washington, DC as well as employers large and small who have heeded his call and taken action to provide their citizens and employees a fair wage. The President underscored that America built the world’s greatest middle class by making sure that everyone who’s willing to work hard and play by the rules can get ahead – an economic patriotism worth remembering this Labor Day, and every day.

The audio of the address and video of the address will be available online at www.whitehouse.gov at 6:00 a.m. ET, August 30, 2014.

Remarks of President Barack Obama
Weekly Address
The White House
August 30, 2014

Hi, everybody.  Whether you’re firing up the grill, fired up for some college football, or filling up the car for one last summer roadtrip – Happy Labor Day weekend.

We set aside Labor Day to honor the working men and women of America.  And this Labor Day, we’ve got more to celebrate.  Over the past 53 months, our businesses have added nearly 10 million new jobs.  Last month, for the first time since 1997, we created more than 200,000 jobs for six straight months.  And for the first time in over a decade, business leaders worldwide have declared, two years running, that the number one place to invest isn’t China – it’s America.

So there are reasons to be optimistic about where we’re headed.  And the decisions we make now will determine whether or not we accelerate this progress – whether economic gains flow to a few at the top, or whether a growing economy fuels rising incomes and a thriving middle class.

Think about it this Labor Day.  The things we often take for granted – Social Security and Medicare, workplace safety laws and the right to organize for better pay and benefits, even weekends – we didn’t always have these things.  Workers and the unions who get their back had to fight for them.  And those fights built a stronger middle class.

To build a stronger middle class in today’s changing economy, we’ve got to keep fighting.  We’ve got to fight for the right to affordable health insurance for everybody.  The right to fair pay, family leave, and workplace flexibility.  The right to a fair living wage.

Let me focus on that last one for a minute.  In America, no one who works full-time should ever have to raise a family in poverty.  A hard day’s work deserves a fair day’s pay.  And raising the minimum wage would be one of the best ways to give a boost to working families.  It would help around 28 million Americans from all walks of life pay the bills, provide for their kids, and spend that money at local businesses.  And that grows the economy for everyone.

The bottom line is, America deserves a raise.  But until we’ve got a Congress that cares about raising working folks’ wages, it’s up to the rest of us to make it happen.  And in the year and a half since I first asked Congress to raise the minimum wage, Americans of all walks of life are doing just that.

Thirteen states and D.C. have done their part by raising their minimum wages.  Four more states have minimum wage initiatives on the ballot this November.  And the states where the minimum wage has gone up this year have experienced higher job growth than the states that haven’t.

Business leaders at companies like The Gap are doing their part.  They’re raising base wages for tens of thousands of workers because they know it’s good for business.

Mayors across the country are doing their part.  Mayor Emanuel in Chicago and Mayor Garcetti in L.A. are working to lift their cities’ wages over time to at least thirteen dollars an hour.

I’ve tried to do my part by requiring companies that get contracts with the federal government to pay their workers a fair wage of ten dollars and ten cents an hour.

And earlier this month, the president of Kentucky State University set a great example by giving himself a $90,000 pay cut, so that he could give raises to his lowest-paid employees.  His sacrifice will give more of his workers and their families a little extra money to help make ends meet.

That’s how America built the greatest middle class the world has ever known.  Not by making sure a fortunate few at the top are doing well, but by making sure that everyone who’s willing to work hard and play by the rules can get ahead.  That’s the bedrock this country is built on.  Hard work.  Responsibility.  Sacrifice.  And looking out for one another as one united American family.

Let’s keep that in mind this Labor Day, and every day.  Have a great weekend, everybody.

IEMA Encourages People to Plan for Emergencies during National Preparedness Month in September

Posted by Admin On September - 1 - 2014 Comments Off on IEMA Encourages People to Plan for Emergencies during National Preparedness Month in September

‘Be Disaster Aware, Take Action to Prepare’ is Theme

SPRINGFIELD, IL – Disasters can strike anytime and anywhere. To encourage people to be better prepared for emergencies, the Illinois Emergency Management Agency (IEMA) and local emergency management agencies throughout Illinois are joining local, state and federal agencies across the U.S. during September to observe National Preparedness Month. The campaign will conclude on September 30 with ‘America’s PrepareAthon,’ a national day of action.

“Spending just a few minutes today on personal preparedness can help you and your family stay safe when disaster strikes,” said IEMA Director Jonathon Monken. “We’re encouraging people to find out what hazards could affect their areas and then take actions to increase their preparedness, such as developing an emergency supply kit and a making a plan for reuniting if the family is separated during a disaster.”

The theme for this year’s preparedness campaign is “Be Disaster Aware, Take Action to Prepare.” Each week during the month, the campaign will focus on a different area of preparedness. The weekly themes include:

Sept. 1-7 – How to reconnect with family after a disaster

Sept. 8-14 – How to plan for specific needs before a disaster

Sept. 15-21 – How to build an emergency kit

Sept. 22-30 – How to practice for an emergency

Throughout September, IEMA will post daily preparedness tips on the Ready Illinois Facebook page (www.facebook.com/ReadyIllinois) and Twitter (@ReadyIllinois). IEMA also maintains the state’s Ready Illinois website (www.Ready.Illinois.gov), a one-stop resource for detailed information about what to do before, during and after disasters.

During disasters, IEMA uses the Ready Illinois website, Facebook and Twitter to provide critical information about the incident, including shelter locations, road closures, safety information, photos and more.

Love, Politics and Women – SMASH Opens September 5

Posted by Admin On September - 1 - 2014 Comments Off on Love, Politics and Women – SMASH Opens September 5

EVANSTON, IL – Piccolo Theatre’s SMASH previews this weekend, and opens to the press on Friday, September 5!  Though wedding love and politics is not often seen on the Piccolo stage, Jeffrey Hatcher’s script dazzles with high-style British comedy staying true to Piccolo’s mission to make people laugh.

On the surface, SMASH could be likened to the work of Noel Coward, or Oscar Wilde – just another jolly good, witty warhorse tramped out for laughs. But at the heart of this Shavian pro-socialist comedy is a story about the choices people make and how they make them when what they believe is challenged.  The relevance of tradition as it is eclipsed by revolution is still a theme in today’s society, especially for women. Though no longer conditioned to be wives and mothers only, it is the women of SMASH who break the norms of education, politics, and love by teaching the men in their lives that while they may want to change the world, it is love that changes them.

SMASH previews August 29 – 31, Friday & Saturday at 8PM, and Sunday at 3PM. Press opening is Friday, September 5 at 8PM with a free reception to follow. Performances run September 5 – October 11; all performances are Friday and Saturday at 8PM, and Sunday at 3PM.

Ticket prices include $15 (previews only), $70 (family of 4), $27 (adults), $23(seniors), $15 (students and industry), $11 (Children 10 and younger). Group discounts are available for all performances. For tickets and more information, call the Box Office at (847) 424-0089 Monday-Friday from 10AM-5PM, or visit www.piccolotheatre.com.

Crack down on tax-dodging corporations: Sign The Petition

Posted by Admin On September - 1 - 2014 Comments Off on Crack down on tax-dodging corporations: Sign The Petition
The petition to President Obama reads:
“Tax dodging gimmicks like inversion allow major corporations to avoid paying their fair share in taxes. Crack down on tax dodging corporations by using your executive authority to eliminate tax incentives for companies to move their headquarters overseas.”

Sign the petition: Crack down on tax-dodging corporations
Burger King made international headlines recently when it announced that it is considering using a loophole called tax inversion to dodge billions of dollars in taxes.
Walgreens considered a similar move a few weeks ago, but thanks in part to the grassroots activism of more than 75,000 CREDO activists and other progressive groups, the company ultimately backed down.1
Dozens of major American corporations have exploited the same loophole so far in 2014 and countless others are actively considering it.2 This loophole will cost the U.S. an estimated $20 billion in tax revenue over the next decade.
President Obama could eliminate much of the tax incentive for companies to move overseas by simply invoking a law that has been on the books for decades.3 He has said in recent weeks that he’s considering cracking down on corporate tax dodgers4 – but hasn’t yet taken this basic step.

A tax inversion is a shady accounting trick that allows corporations to enjoy the benefits of doing business in the United States without paying their fair share in taxes. In essence, by moving its headquarters overseas, a company is able to loan itself money and then claim tax deductions on the money it uses to pay itself back.5
Republicans in Congress have refused to take action to stop tax inversions and the Obama administration can’t make this practice illegal. But the president can go a long way toward removing the financial incentives that make tax inversions profitable.
Section 385 of the U.S. tax code empowers the Treasury Department to largely prevent companies that perform a tax inversion from claiming tax deductions on money they loan to themselves. This one simple executive action would likely put a stop to many of the tax inversion deals currently being considered.

In the past three years, 22 major companies, including Chiquita Bananas and the pharmaceutical giant Pfizer, have attempted tax inversions.6 The surge in inversions has been driven in part by Wall Street firms like Goldman Sachs, JP Morgan and Morgan Stanley, which have raked in hundreds of millions of dollars in fees on inversion deals in the past three years.7
President Obama has called companies that take advantage of tax inversions “corporate deserters” who are trying to “get out of paying their fair share of taxes.”8 But strong rhetoric doesn’t make it harder for corporations to dodge taxes. Now we need President Obama to use his executive authority to get the job done.

Tell President Obama to eliminate the tax incentive for U.S. companies to move their corporate headquarters overseas. Click the link below to sign the petition now:

Thanks for fighting to stop corporate tax-dodging.

Action Alert!

One out of every four deaths in the U.S. is attributed to cancer. But federal funding is at the lowest point it has been in decades. Many of the most talented young scientists are unable to pursue a career in cancer research, meaning that we’re missing out on much needed insights that could end cancer once and for all.
Please sign the petition today!

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share via Email
Rebecca Gardner is one of many dedicated soldiers in the fight to end cancer. As a young cancer researcher, Dr. Gardner works in critical cell research that helps recognize and fight cancer. But funding is at an all-time low and it’s becoming more and more difficult for people like Dr. Gardner to pursue careers in cancer research. Reduced funding not only makes it harder for young scientists to fight cancer, but this has far reaching implications for the millions affected by cancer.

With 1.6 million Americans facing a cancer diagnosis this year, shouldn’t we be doing everything that we can to halt cancer in its tracks? Research is the best way to prevent, control and cure cancer — let’s stand up in support of cancer’s dedicated researchers!

Without funding, many of the most talented and promising young scientists are unable to pursue a career in cancer research. Imagine all the knowledge lost. We are missing out on needed advances in the science behind ending cancer! If we are to make any significant stride in cancer prevention and control, we need to take a stand for those who dedicate their lives to cancer research.

Show Your Support For Young Cancer Researchers!
