A Dream And A Name

Medgar Evers

I had another dream last week of a surprise attack on America, the dream was really short. In the dream me and my wife pulled up into an apartment complex parking lot and then suddenly I heard popping sounds, I looked up into the sky and saw bombs being dropped nearby in a residential area! Then I saw a missile being fired right over our heads! (end)

Also last week I heard the name "Medgar Evers"  I didn't know much about him so I just checked Wikipedia, here is a short excerpt.

"Medgar Wiley Evers (July 2, 1925 – June 12, 1963) was an American civil rights activist from Mississippi who worked to overturn segregation at the University of Mississippi and to enact social justice and voting rights. He is remembered for saying "You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea."

A World War II veteran and college graduate, he became active in the Civil Rights Movement in the 1950s. He became a field secretary for the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP). Following the 1954 ruling of the United States Supreme Court in Brown v. Board of Education that segregated public schools were unconstitutional, Evers worked to gain admission for African Americans to the state-supported public University of Mississippi. He also worked on voting rights and registration, economic opportunity, access to public facilities, and other changes in the segregated society.

Evers was assassinated by Byron De La Beckwith, a member of the White Citizens' Council, a group formed in 1954 to resist integration of schools and civil rights activity. As a veteran, Evers was buried with full military honors at Arlington National Cemetery. His murder and the resulting trials inspired civil rights protests, as well as numerous works of art, music and film."

Another warning from the Lord about upcoming events? I believe so!

Keep watch people!

Renewing Your Mind (Series): Trapped In The Past

2nd Corinthians 3:12-17

"Therefore, since we have such hope, we use great boldness of speech—unlike Moses, who put a veil over his face so that the children of Israel could not look steadily at the end of what was passing away. But their minds were blinded. For until this day the same veil remains unlifted in the reading of the Old Testament, because the veil is taken away in Christ. But even to this day, when Moses is read, a veil lies on their heart. Nevertheless when one turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. Now the Lord is the Spirit; and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty."

These scriptures were written over two thousand years ago, but the same veil remains on the hearts and minds of many Jewish and professing Christians when it comes to the Old Testament. So many are trapped in the past, still quoting Malachi 3:8-10 for tithing, not reading the whole book and putting the scriptures into context. Why is that?

It's because they have not turned to the Lord! Only He can take the veil away!

Where is the Spirit of the Lord in these congregations? He is the One who brings liberty, refreshing, and renewal of the mind.

Where is the diversity and unity of the faith in the two hundred and seventeen denominations in America?

Many are trapped in the past and continue to meet in racially divided 'churches', with carnal minds that cannot move forward even though they claim to know Jesus and walk in His truth!

Sunday is still the most racially segregated day of the week in America!

If you truly want to be set free in your mind and transformed into the image of Christ in your inner man (soul & spirit), you MUST forget your past, leave behind your former way of life, forgive those who wronged you, and live your life in the present, in the moment. Yesterday is gone, and tomorrow is not promised!

Phillipians 3:12-16

"Not that I have already attained, or am already perfected; but I press on, that I may lay hold of that for which Christ Jesus has also laid hold of me. Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead, I press toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus. Therefore let us, as many as are mature, have this mind; and if in anything you think otherwise, God will reveal even this to you. Nevertheless, to the degree that we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us be of the same mind."

In Jesus,
