John 17:22-23 King James Version 22 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one: 23 I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.
Right now, vaccination rates in Chelan and Douglas counties rank among the top 11 counties in the state for first-dose COVID-19 vaccinations. Still, over 100 Confluence Health and state employees and other residents met on the intersection Ninth Street and Chelan Avenue to protest the state's vaccine mandate for health care and state employees. Among the protesters was Shawna Caddy, a Tonasket resident and administrative assistant with Confluence Health for 10 years who took a leave of absence rather than get vaccinated. The East Wenatchee City Council unanimously approved an agreement with Wenatchee around homeless housing funds and a corresponding task force after being split on the matter in a previous vote.

Scripture For Today:1 Samuel 2:20“Eli would bless Elkanah and his wife, saying, “May the Lord give you children by this woman to take the place of the one she prayed for and gave to the Lord.” Then they would go home.” How to Effectively Use the Prayer of Agreement pt 5We have been studying about how to effectively use the prayer of agreement. Yesterday, we left off with a look at Mark 11:22-24. As you know, I stand 100% on this scripture. But to help us get a look at the power that is available, let's look also, as we get started today, at Nehemiah 9:38, which promises us that we can, and have the authority to do so, that is Make a sure covenant and we are swearing to it – in agreement…you can do this where your ministry is concerned, where your healing is concerned, where your finances are concerned or where your family is concerned….but YOU have to believe it to receive it… Now let's go look at Mark 11:22-24 “Have faith in God,” Jesus answered. “Truly I tell you, if anyone says to this mountain, ‘Go, throw yourself into the sea,' and does not doubt in their heart - but believes that what they say will happen, it will be done for them. Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask for in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours. So, once again, I say unto you (sounds like Jesus, doesn't it? Well, IT IS. Praise God)… anyway, Go to the Bible and find the answer to the problem you are facing. Then make the decision to believe God for the answer. Remember, the 1st time you dove off the high diving board as a kid? I do. I was scared stiff! But, you had to make the decision to jump! And it came down to the point, with people waiting behind you usually…and you not wanting to look embarrassed and climbing all the way back down...bumping into people….that you just make the decision to jump! And once the decision was made to do it…you just go for it! Then you are committed! Amen! It works the same way…when you made the decision to get born again! I did the same thing when I made the decision to enter the ministry and again when I made the decision to enter full time ministry...I'm just going for it! Amen! 2 Corinthians 10:5 says to bring every thought into the obedience of Christ. It will come to pass – yes – amen! Think on these things, Philippians 4:6-9 says. When you do these things…when your mind will try to turn your heart away from God's Word and God's promises…you have to make the decision to go back to the Word again and read it….make yourself do it…and then make the decision “if that is what God's Word says…then that is the way it is going to be…amen! As far as I am concerned…this is already done, in Jesus name…amen!” Then, when people come up and ask you, “how ya' doing brother?” You can speak the problem – and loose the entire ball of wax right there….or you can speak the answer…you can just say, “We are praising God for the victory!” They will look at you real funny…they know what you are going through…but you can say, “my wife and I – or my husband and I – or my family and I – put ourselves into agreement that God's Word is true and we are just praising God because He will take care of this situation!” When you do that – you are standing in agreement with each other and in agreement with the Word of God – which is Jesus (the Word made flesh, amen!)…Now you are in Faith…you are walking in Faith…you are standing in Faith…you are confessing in Faith….you are maintaining Mark 11:22 “have Faith in God!”….and the answer is coming! You are in agreement with Jesus – and His promises ALWAYS COME TO...
Scripture For Today: 1 Kings 19:4“…while he himself went a day's journey into the wilderness. He came to a broom bush, sat down under it and prayed that he might die. “I have had enough, Lord,” he said. “Take my life; I am no better than my ancestors.”How to Effectively Use the Prayer of Agreement pt 4We have been studying how Christians in the United States, and, for that matter, in all nations of the world, have allowed satanic influences to sneak into our government and how you can put a stop to it. Not only will this work for your own prayers, but it will for loved ones you are praying for, too. Go to Matthew 18:18-19 You have to realize we are on the earth right now…so this prayer applies to us. Jesus has already established it – and said if you resist the devil – he will flee from you (because you are using the Word). Then it says “AGAIN” I SAY UNTO YOU…. If 2 or more of you shall agree…that word agree means to “harmonize” to create a “symphony.” A symphony takes several individual instruments and uses them in harmony to create a unique sound that is impossible to create individually. Have you ever been to a concert and heard the instruments tuning up…it sounds horrible! But, when the conductor takes his place and taps on the podium – all attention is on him. And when he lifts his hands and begins to direct the individual instruments – it harmonizes them and it is beautiful to behold and to listen to…amen! There is an area of prayer that is more powerful than any one single Christian or ministry can do by their self. That is why the devil tries so hard to bring DISHARMONY of DISCORD into churches and families…amen! Nehiemiah 9:38 says we make a sure covenant and we are swearing to it – in agreement…you can do this where your ministry is concerned, where your healing is concerned, where your finances are concerned or where your family is concerned….but YOU have to believe it to receive it… Mark 11:22-24 Go to the Bible and find the answer to the problem you are facing. Then make the decision to believe God for the answer. Remember, the 1st time you dove off the high diving board as a kid? I do. I was scared stiff! But, you had to make the decision to jump! And it came down to the point, with people waiting behind you usually…and you not wanting to look embarrassed and climbing all the way back down..bumping into people….that you just make the decision to jump! And once the decision was made to do it…you just go for it! Then you are committed! Amen! It works the same way…when you made the decision to get born again! I did the same thing when I made the decision to enter the ministry and again when I made the decision to enter full time ministry….I'm just going for it! Amen! Let's Pray!

The United States and Greece signed an extension of the Mutual Defense Cooperation Agreement (MDCA) on Thursday, renewing their agreement for five years with an understanding that from then onward, it would remain in place indefinitely. The MDCA will boost defense cooperation between the two countries, including further investment in bases operated by the US military in Greece. Greek Foreign Minister Nikos Dendias and US Secretary of State, who signed the agreement, were meeting in Washington for the third round of strategic dialogue between the two NATO allies.

Scripture For Today:1 Chronicles 17:16“Then King David went in and sat before the Lord, and he said: “Who am I, Lord God, and what is my family, that you have brought me this far?”How to Effectively Use the Prayer of Agreement pt 3We have been studying how Christians in the United States, and, for that matter, in all nations of the world, have allowed satanic influences to sneak into our government. What I want to do today, is let's go back to our foundation scripture in Ephesians 6:12-18. I keep emphasizing, we do not pray against people. I don't care if the person is being the cruelest SOB you've ever dealt with. It is the demon that is influencing him that is the issue. Not him. He may have given the demon access. But if you want to get mad at someone – get mad at the devil. Use your authority, in the Name of Jesus, and bind that demon. Bind him up tight! Amen! We DO NOT pray against people. We pray against the devil who is influencing the people…amen! When someone comes against you, in one way or another…it is easy to get offended and start to pray like –“God, make brother so and so stop this…” but you should be binding the devil who is influencing brother so and so…and praising God for the victory in your behalf. Pray Isaiah 54:17 “No weapon formed against me shall prosper and every tongue that comes against me shall be condemned.” Remember, we do not pray against people. Two of Jesus disciples (James and John – the Son's of Thunder) got upset with a group of people and asked Jesus “you want us to pray down fire against them?” and Jesus rebuked them and said, “You don't know of what spirit you are.” If you keep trying to come against God's people…you keep on keeping on…and keeping on and keeping on….eventually, God is going to have to put a stop to you because you are hindering His work in their lives….instead of trying to get them saved you are trying to send them to hell…and He does not want them to go to hell…but if you keep praying against them instead of praying for them…God will have to deal with YOUR attitude! Amen! Jesus takes it personally if you try to come against His people…think about the Apostle Paul! Jesus said to him, “why do you keep persecuting ME?” amen! Ephesians 6:17-18 Take the Word of God – praying! Don't try to pray without the Word of God. We are to pray God's Word over the situation. We are praying against the devil when we lift up the Word of God in a situation….Every prayer should contain the Word of God! Amen! Every prayer should be based on scriptures relevant to the prayer being made. What I mean by this is this. If you are praying for healing, for you or a loved one, etc., you – YOU – need to go and look up healing scriptures. YOU need to write them down. YOU need to study them. YOU need to understand them. YOU need to do this. Not the other person. It works a lot better and a lot faster if the other person is as motivated about this as you are – through what? The “power of agreement.” Folks, this is not rocket science. We've been studying “How to Effectively Use the Power of Agreement” and the last week or so it was the “Power of Agreement and Binding and Loosing.” Amen! This is all relevant to the world we live in right now. So YOU need to have these scriptures as the basis for every single prayer you make. Healing scriptures if healing; blessing scriptures if blessings; prosperity scriptures for finances, etc. I'm going to leave you with this thought, as we are starting to get long again today. That thought is this: THE WORD OF GOD WORKS. Period. If you get to the point where you believe that, as Jesus taught, “Nothing will be impossible for you.” Amen! Let's Pray!...
Holocaust education has proliferated in the United States, along with a nationwide emphasis on anti-bias education. But recent years have also seen an undeniable rise in antisemitism. How did we get here? To find out, host Dara Horn rewinds back to the stunning success of Gentlemen's Agreement, a 1947 Oscar-winning Hollywood blockbuster in which Gregory Peck plays a journalist who poses as a Jew in order to expose American antisemitism. The movie's premise is hilariously blunt: People shouldn't hate Jews, because Jews are Just Like Us! Of course, this premise contains an unspoken compromise: If Jews aren't Just Like Us, hating them might actually be fine after all. To investigate this requirement that Jews erase their differences in order to deserve respect, we go back to a bizarre moment in 1806, when Napoleon convened an ancient rabbinic court to ensure that the Jews were sufficiently Just Like Us. In this bizarre Napoleonic game show and the spectacular gory failures that unspooled from it, we can begin to see the unarticulated limits of what we now think of as diversity—and to consider, in profound ways, how we might do better. Rachel Gordan's most recent work on Gentleman's Agreement, Laura Z. Hobson, and twentieth century American Jewish culture can be found here, here, and here. Jonathan Helfand's work on Jewish identity in France can be found here and here. For further background, see also Napoleon, the Jews, and the Sanhedrin and The Affair: The Case of Alfred Dreyfus. Dara Horn's new book, People Love Dead Jews, is published by WW Norton and is available wherever books are sold. It's also available as an audio book from Recorded Books. We hope you'll check it out.

Today’s Patreon-fueled shout-out is for the Plant Northern Piedmont Natives Campaign, an initiative that wants you to grow native plants in yards, farms, public spaces and gardens in the northern Piedmont. The leaves have started to fall as autumn set in, and as they do, this is a good time to begin planning for the spring. Native plants provide habitat, food sources for wildlife, ecosystem resiliency in the face of climate change, and clean water. Start at the Plant Northern Piedmont Natives Facebook page and tell them Lonnie Murray sent you!On today’s show:Charlottesville City Manager resigns, citing personal and professional attacks from Nikuyah WalkerThe Charlottesville Economic Development Authority reauthorizes a performance agreement with the Piedmont Housing Alliance for the redevelopment of Friendship CourtCharlottesville moving forward with planning for climate adaptation The Charlottesville Economic Development Authority has reauthorized a performance agreement with the Piedmont Housing Alliance for a loan for the redevelopment of Friendship Court. Piedmont Housing Alliance would pay the money back through the incremental tax revenue the city would get from a more intense residential development. Here’s Economic Development Director Chris Engel. (staff report)“Typically, our performance agreements are done to encourage business development, job creation, capital investment that creates office space or an industrial building,” Engel said. “In this case, the public good if you will is the rehabilitation and addition of not public housing, but affordable housing that would be owned and managed on a long term basis by the Piedmont Housing Alliance.” The city is currently considering using this tool to finance improvements to Stribling Avenue. This is also the same mechanism that was proposed by the owner of the skeleton Landmark hotel. In this case, the 11.75 acre property is assessed at $8.185 million this year, which yields $77,714 in property taxes for the city. When the first phase of redevelopment is completed, the value is projected to be over $20 million, which Engel said would bring in an additional $190,000. Piedmont Housing Alliance would get that increase through a transfer from the Economic Development authority. “This is a very complicated, complex deal to get this to all come together,” Engel said.This is separate from the nearly $16 million in capital funds city taxpayers will contribute to all four phases of redevelopment. Under this agreement, Piedmont Housing Alliance would collect the funding up to $6 million.“There’s not a profit making opportunity here for anybody but it’s an opportunity to see additional affordable housing added to the city again and an old site that needs rehabilitation,” Engel said. The EDA approved the reauthorization with little debate. The original agreement was written up by former city attorney John Blair before he became the acting city manager after former city manager Tarron Richardson resigned. Engel said the Piedmont Housing Alliance is ready to begin construction. Their website has not been updated with information about redevelopment since last October when a December start-date for construction was expected. More information as it comes in. Charlottesville’s efforts to create a Climate Adaptation Plan move forward this month with a community forum to get input on potential threats from more extreme weather patterns. The October 25 event will be the first steps for the city to complete a Climate Vulnerability Assessment. “As part of the city’s climate action effort, it has committed to developing a plan to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and to prepare and respond to our changing climate,” said Susan Elliott, the city’s climate protection program manager..Participants are being asked to review a webinar recorded on October 7 where representatives from ICLEI described Charlottesville’s projected climate hazards and gave an overview of the process. Another pre-forum webinar will be held on October 15. (register) The Community Forum on October 25 will begin at 5:30 p.m. (register)Charlottesville City Council will have to appoint someone to serve as City Manager as of Monday, November 1. The five-member elected body held an emergency closed session Tuesday afternoon to discuss “Urgent Personnel Matters.” “I move that we accept the resignation of Chip Boyles, effective October 29, 2021 per the letter that he has sent to Council,” said City Councilor Heather Hill as she read a motion coming back from closed session. Council voted 5-0 to accept the resignation, but there was no sense of who would take over as city manager. There are two deputy city managers who were hired by Boyles, both of whom have a collective tenure of seven months. Ashley Marshall has been Deputy City Manager for Racial Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion since May and Sam Sanders has been Deputy City Manager for Operations since August. Before we get back to Boyles, there was also news of another person leaving city government. In an earlier motion, Hill disclosed the departure of the city’s Information Technology department, Sunny Hwang. He’s served in that position since September 2018 according to his LinkedIn profile, which has not yet been updated. There are also vacancies at the tops of the parks department and the public works department. Back to Boyles. Boyles was hired in January to replace John Blair, who served as interim city manager after Dr. Tarron Richardson resigned in September. In his resignation letter, Boyles said he had been hired to help the organization get back on its feet after a “time of turbulence and organizational instability.” “This success was disrupted with my decision to to change the leadership of the City Police Department,” Boyles wrote. “I continue to support my decision taken on this matter, but the vitriol associated with this decision of a few vocal community members and the broken relationship with Mayor Walker have severely limited my ability to be productive towards the goals of City Council.”Boyles said personal and professional attacks from Walker and others were beginning to hurt his mental health. He resigned to protect himself and his family. To recap, Boyles terminated the contract of Chief RaShall Brackney on September 1, 2021, triggering a ferocious outcry from Walker. She spent much of the September 7 meeting using her privileges as Mayor to force a conversation about the topic. For context, go back and listen to the September 8 edition of this newsletter. The soundbites for the read of the newsletter today come from the October 4, 2021 meeting of Council, and the last hour or so of the meeting. The agenda listed a formal discussion of the matter at the conclusion of other business. Boyles defended his decision, which was his alone to make under the city’s charter. Boyles’ explanationBoyles said Brackney had moved the department toward being a more just and fair system, but said surveys conducted by the Police Benevolent Association indicated low morale.“It became to me evident that some type of change needed to be made that while we had been making strides in one area, the implementation into the department itself was in jeopardy,” Boyles said. That soundbite comes from about an 11 minute explanation that Boyles gave. For some more background, I refer you to the August 20 “response from the city” to those PBA surveys. The statement also describes the resignations of two members of the SWAT team and the termination of a third. (read the statement)What followed were questions from the rest of the Council. Councilor Michael Payne said he was concerned about the timing of the incident.“It has to be stated that, one, the PBA is an organization that is one that is not friendly to reform,” Payne said. “Those organizations across the country are not friendly to officers being disciplined and held accountable for mistreatment.” Vice Mayor Sena Magill said she wanted Boyles to write down his vision for the city.“I have seen the team that you are building in City Hall and I believe that you are focused on a team that wants to bring Charlottesville into 21st century practices on a lot of things including a teamwork environment,” Magill said.Councilor Heather Hill.“We’re not condoning any of the behaviors that were rightfully dealt with in the police department and that we are committed to a very way of policing in the city of Charlottesville,” Hill said. In his comments on October 4, Councilor Lloyd Snook referred to a closed session from mid August after the disciplinary actions described in the statement were made. “When Chief Brackney explained to use in closed session on August 16 I believe it was what the evidence was of the SWAT team officers conduct, showed us a few snippets of video,” Snook said. “Every Councilor in the room, every senior management person in the room was satisfied with the chief’s decision.”Snook said the City Manager has the right and power to fire the police chief.“The only issue for us quite frankly is whether we fire the city manager for firing the police chief,” Snook said. On October 4, Snook said the answer was no.But for Mayor Nikuyah Walker, the answer was not no. Walker’s cross-examinationWalker used her time to ask Boyles a series of pointed questions, including this one about internal surveys. “How did you arrive from looking at the survey that the Chief was the issue based on those surveys,” Walker asked.“Most of the survey was built around the command staff and answers were regarding the individual command staff but it was just an overall leadership from both the questions that were included in the survey and then the chance for the officers to comment,” Boyles said. Let’s skip ahead a little to another section.“So these issues arose and you didn’t afford her a conversation to talk with her about the issues that you had come to learn and create a plan with her to rectify those issues,” Walker said.“I did,” Boyles said. “And one of our meetings after a lot of this started becoming evident, I asked her about preparing a plan to try to address some of these items. The response was that a plan wasn’t needed and what did I have in mind to put into a plan.”Boyles said that was not his area of expertise. Let’s skip ahead. Walker quoted from the September 17 op-ed Boyles wrote for the Daily Progress.“So, in the immediacy of the decision in the op-ed piece that you wrote that the CPD was ‘gripped in chaos’,” Walker said.“Yes, it was my understanding that some of the leadership positions were not going to be staying if Chief Brackney were staying,” Boyles said. This line of questioning continued. Walker said her information said only two of six members of the command staff were set to leave. “So, you consider two of six people to be chaos?” Walker said. “No, I think it extends beyond,” Boyles said. “It’s the statements from the survey of people looking for other jobs, wanting to be out of the police department. There is no smoking gun in this.”Walker went through many of the comments and read through them out loud. She also wanted to pin down Boyles on what conversations he had with regional leaders about policing issues. Boyles said those were conversations were private and in confidence.“Okay, Chip, so since all of these people are secretive and you think that’s okay, because what you want us to do on whether or not you want to stay here or not based on some random conversations we had without talking to you about?” Walker asked.”That’s a decision you all will make,” Boyles said. “As I stated earlier, I’m here to fulfil the direction of Council. I took this job knowing. I think I’ve even stated for me there’s a job evaluation every other meeting. I accept that.”The questioning continued. At one point, there was to have been a press conference after the release of the August 20 statement.“And then, Chief Brackney arrived at a meeting, right, Chip? And you had changed course by that time that there’s no longer going to be a press conference,” Walker said.“Yes,” Boyles responded. “We had a disagreement over wanting to show the videos that you all saw in your closed session.” A little later on in the cross-examination, Councilor Hill brought a specific incident related to how former Police Chief Brackney responded to feedback. Go back to the tape to learn more about that but Walker asked Hill to read the email in question. “Okay, do you want to pull that email up?” Walker asked“I’m happy to find it, but I don’t think it’s necessary right now,” Hill said. “I’m just saying you are trying to pick specific examples. I don’t want to go down this path with you.”“I’m not,” Walker said, her voice rising. “I was open to whatever you all presented. I asked and allowed you all you to talk first because I’m just trying…”“We were trying to be respectful,” Hill said. “Excuse me?” Walker asked.“We were trying to be respectful of the process,” Hill said. “This is not the appropriate forum to get into all of this.”“You were not trying to be respectful of any process,” Walker said. “I have been on this Council and I know how you operate.”“I’d like for us to move on,” Hlll said. The conversation went back to that meeting after the August 20 press release. Boyles explained the dynamic that was leading him to make a decision. “That meeting was a good indication similar to what Councilor Hill was just talking about when we began to disagree over the videos and other issues, Chief Brackney just left the meeting which again gave me concern of being able to work with that type of interaction, with that type of relationship,” Boyles said. Boyles acknowledged that Brackney had told him that she had felt targeted by members of the community as well as internally. “My knowledge of that comes from what she’s told me and I certainly believe it to be true,” Boyles said. Walker was clear she was not going to let Boyles forget his decision to terminate Brackney. “I can go on about every city manager that has been here, and you are never going to, I told you this, Chip,” Walker said. “You’re never going to live past this decision.”Soon after, Walker quoted from the book White Rage to make part of her point and chastised her fellow Councilors for trying to control her.“Have I made 100 percent of the right decisions?” Walker asked. “No. Have you all made 100 percent of the right decisions? No. You haven’t. But again, your white gaze gets to determine who wins in a situation like this.”Earlier this year, Walker wrestled with whether to seek a second term before announcing in May she would be a candidate. She withdrew from the race on September 8, citing the racism of her fellow Councilors. Walker raised no campaign funds this year. The conversation on October 4 continued, and the rest of the discussion is available to watch. Now it’s perhaps a better use of our time to think ahead to Council’s next meeting on October 18, as well as the four regular meetings of the year. Two new Councilors will join in January when Walker and Hill’s terms are up. Who will be the city manager? Who will be mayor? Who will be running the city This is a public episode.

Scripture For Today:1 Samuel 14:41“Then Saul prayed to the Lord, the God of Israel, “Why have you not answered your servant today? If the fault is in me or my son Jonathan, respond with Urim, but if the men of Israel are at fault, respond with Thummim.” Jonathan and Saul were taken by lot, and the men were cleared.”How to Effectively Use the Prayer of Agreement pt 2 We have been studying how Christians in the United States, and, for that matter, in all nations of the world, have allowed satanic influences to sneak into our government...and now we are suffering and wondering “why is this happening?”….well, I'll tell you why! Because you let the devil run the government! You elected ungodly people who publicly advocate ungodly, unbiblical policies and you not only elected them, you continue to support them! Instead of supporting Godly virtues, you side with the devil and his like with all of these ungodly things under the guise of “it's their choice.” Yes, it is their choice, but it's not MY choice. So why do I have to bow before Baal just because you do? You want to know what you should do? Kick devil out, kick those ungodly politicians out and get some Godly people in there…and things will start to get better…but when you just vote your pocket book or what somebody can do FOR YOU instead of what they can do to further the Kingdom of God in this nation…then you are part of the problem and not part of the solution…and God can raise up someone else to fulfill His plan if you refuse…but for you and your family – if you refuse to obey God's Will – for you - it will be to your damnation…amen! So be it. Have fun in hell, for the Bible is very clear, that's where YOU and your like will end up. And I can prove it to you biblically… We have studied this concept out Biblically several times over…example after example in the Old Testament…These demons even had one fella convinced he was a god! The prophet came and told him – “you're not a god…you're a man…then God told the prophet to prophesy against the KING in that nation…and he was not talking about the man…he was talking to the demon over that nation that was influencing the man…amen! Jesus has given us His power and His name to tear that stuff down…but the Christians in this nation are afraid to use His Name and Power because “it might offend some people that do not believe like we do!” Give me a break…the ONLY thing and the ONLY chance this nation has of coming out of this global mess IS when believers stand up and don't care and don't give a flying flip about what other people think! Are you serving MAN or GOD!? Now, the prayer of agreement is the fact when 2 or 3 of us believers come together and agree on this earth…when we get together in agreement that what we are asking for is the outcome desired…we become a three fold cord that is not quickly broken! Amen! We are joined together in strength…we are joined together in prayer – according to His Word…and we establish spiritual authority and spiritual law in the situation we are believing for…and it MUST come to pass – we have God's Word on it! And there is absolutely nothing the devil can do to stop it! Except get YOU to break the power of your agreement….with words of doubt and unbelief. You break the power by believing the lies which the devil begins to try and plant in your mind (it's not going to work this time…)…. When you listen to the devil and begin to do what he says or say what he says….it is the same thing that happened to Adam in the Garden of Eden….it steals your joy, it steals your blessing. It steals your soul… Amen! OK, I'm over again today… Let's Pray!

Scripture For Today:Deuteronomy 9:20“And the Lord was angry enough with Aaron to destroy him, but at that time I prayed for Aaron, too.”How to Effectively Use the Prayer of Agreement pt 1 We are studying about Prayer – different kinds of prayer…nobody on this earth has ever – ever touched the absolute total power that is available to them through prayer…not in their wildest imagination of what God has given to us through the power of prayer. Nobody has ever realized the magnificence of what God has available for us through prayer…Nobody except Jesus has ever lived in constant contact with the Father and walked through this earth knowing what to do in every circumstance. We just go bumbling through life…acting so spiritual – yes amen…- I pray 3 times a month and twice on my birthday…amen…here we are…just bee bopping around…why? When we ought to be walking continually in the magnificence of God…Well, we are going FOR IT…amen! That is what these broadcasts are about…that is what this study is about…amen! Again, Go to our foundation scripture – Ephesians 6:10-18 (before we get through – you are going to KNOW this scripture, inside and out! Amen)! Be Strong in the Lord and in the Power of HIS might! Amen! Put on the whole armor of God – we covered that in detail during the last broadcast. Look at Eph 2:2 Prince of the Power of the Air…that is the devil. We covered that in depth also… We discovered there are three different types of Heaven talked about in the Bible….You have the Heaven where God's Throne is….you have the stellar heaven – outer space…and you have the heaven surrounding the earth…which is the atmosphere…and we discovered that is where the devil is operating at…he is limited to that heaven…amen! We are not in battle against other men or other people. We are in battle against the devils and demons that are controlling other people….actually, we are not in battle against them either…for the battle was the Lord's and the Victory is ours – amen! We tend to give the devil too much credit. The only power he has is the power which men give to him. You are not going into battle against him…Jesus already did that…Jesus already defeated him – real good! Amen! You are not going into battle to try and win the war! Jesus did that Himself….you are the mop up crew….you are the occupying force! Your job is to go and search out where the devil is trying to erect strong holds and use your God given authority to tear them down! Amen! We need to make sure he does not erect these strong holds in our life, our family's life our finances, our city – our government! Amen! We are the ones who are to make sure he does not occupy the territory! We are going to go back now…and look at the prayer of agreement…you remember, we just briefly covered this in the beginning…but I told you then, we needed to come back to it once we had a good foundation laid…well, this is the day – amen! We just looked at Binding and Loosing…and I said then we would need to return and look at the prayer of agreement because it was related to the prayer of binding and loosing. So let's go ahead and do this again, right now. We need to exert the power and authority of Jesus as we find, bind and cast down satanic strongholds and wicked spirits…otherwise, they will try to exert their influence over your mind, your family, etc. We can see that in our governmental systems today….we have allowed these satanic influences to sneek into our government..and now we are suffering and wondering “why”….well, I'll tell you why! Because you let the devil run the government dummy! Kick...

BIO: Chatchai Unrasmeewong is a financial advisor at FINLAB, a financial advisor group that helps clients reach their financial goals. STORY: Being a board game enthusiast, Chatchai decided to partner with a friend and open a board game cafe when he was in university. His target was students at local universities, so he picked a location next to one of the universities. The cafe did well but after one month schools went for a 3-month holiday break and the business could not withstand such a long break. LEARNING: Always sign a shareholder's agreement when getting into a business partnership. Research your market thoroughly before launching your business. “Spend enough time studying the market if you want to run a successful business.”Chatchai Unrasmeewong Guest profilehttps://www.linkedin.com/in/chatchai-unrasmeewong-5956951a8/ (Chatchai Unrasmeewong) is a financial advisor at https://www.linkedin.com/company/f-i-n-lab/ (FINLAB), a financial advisor group that helps clients reach their financial goals. He has a bachelor's degree in finance from Thailand's Kasetsart University. For two years after graduation, he worked as an assistant to the president of a private company. Then he pivoted to pursue his dream job of being a flight attendant. At that time, he also started his first business, which was a board game cafe. His passion is to apply his experience from past careers, knowledge, and abilities to advise people to understand their finances of life and achieve their financial goals. Worst investment everChatchai has always been very passionate about board games, and when he was in university, he decided to make money out of this hobby. He approached a good friend and asked him to partner with him and open a board game cafe. Chatchai borrowed about $2,000 from his mom to fund the partnership. Chatchai did some market research for a month and found a location near a university that he felt would be perfect for the cafe because he wanted to target students. The first month of business was great, and the students loved the cafe. Schools were then closed for three months, and it was a struggle. When schools reopened, Chatchai had to market the cafe all over again, and it was a struggle for him to keep the business afloat. His business partner had gotten a full-time job, so he wasn't helping much. After a few months, Chatchai's business partner suggested closing the business because they were making losses. Chatchai agreed, albeit reluctantly. Lessons learnedDo thorough market research to understand the market first before you launch your business. Have a shareholder's agreement, especially when partnering with friends. Andrew's takeawaysThere's nothing wrong with writing down a shareholder's agreement between partners and agreeing upon what to do should something happen to one of the partners, as well as your plan for your shares. When opening a retail business, choose your location wisely because it could make or break your business. Actionable adviceBefore you make any investment, you need to spend enough time studying the market because you won't run a successful business without that knowledge. No. 1 goal for the next 12 monthsChatchai's number one goal for the next 12 months is to use his knowledge to educate and encourage other entrepreneurs.

Scripture For Today: Acts 13:!3“So after they had fasted and prayed, they placed their hands on them and sent them off.”Prayer of Agreement, Binding and Loosing pt 3 We have been learning about the power in the Prayer of Agreement, especially where it concerns “binding evil spirits and loosing angelic spirits” to work in our lives. Amen! Yesterday, we left off with the subject of when believers come together – powerful things begin to happen! You can just look at the Book of Acts and read about what happens when believers unite in prayer! Amen! The Book of Acts is the record of how the FIRST CHURCHES operated in this earth. I believe that every church should be doing and accomplishing the same things as the churches in the Book of Acts. If your church is not functioning on that level of Power and Authority, then you should be looking for another church. It's as simple as that. Amen! I know that makes a lot of pastors mad. But, once again, I refer to the old saying that if you throw the rock of the Word into a group of pastors, the one that yelps is the one that got hit. Amen! OK, OK…Let's move on… Think about this example. You want to buy a house, for example. You find the perfect house. You decide you want to buy the house. You talk to the owner and say, I will give you “X” amount of money on “this date” to buy this house. The owner says, “yes, that sounds good. We accept.” He signs the contract….you sign the contract….what is that contract called….”an Agreement” correct? Ok, so, now, after signing the agreement…the owners of the house say, “ok, so we will see you on “such and such a date and you will have the money for us, correct?” And you respond with “I sure do hope so, brother…but you never know what God will do.” What do you think the owners of the home will do with that contract – that agreement? They will tear that thing up and throw it in the trash! You were never committed to fulfilling buying the house or fulfilling that contract! The first thing that comes adverse to you fulfilling your part of that contract – you would have been in the wind! We see the same thing happening with Christians all of the time. “Are you coming to the meeting tonight, brother?” “I'm going to try…or I sure do hope so…” You're not going. I will not even be looking for you….you're not committed. If you want me to pray for your healing…I stand on the Word of God, lay hands on you, enact the law of binding and loosing, praise God for your healing…and you say, “I sure do hope it works, this time…” You did not get it…. You might be dead before you get home, with Faith like that. “Brother Bob, that seem kind of harsh.” Folks, time is short. We don't have time to waste like that…either get healed and get back in the battle – or die and go to Heaven and get out our way. It's that simple! “Brother Bob, you should not say things like that!” HEY – if you are born again – Heaven with a Glorified Body is a whole lot better than being on earth with a corrupt body…and if you – in your infinite stupidity – cannot fathom in your mind how God can ever heal you….stop being a witness for the devil – just DIE and go to Heaven…stop wasting my time…stop wasting your pastor's time…stop wasting God's time…we have more important things to do – like getting people healed, delivered and set free who actually believe GOD WILL do things like that…like His Word says He will. I'm sorry if that offends you…but that is the way things are going to be in these last days….amen! When you do come into agreement with another believer, based on the Word of God…and the devil does show up and say something like “it didn't work…you are not...

Scripture For Today: Jeremiah 42:2“Jeremiah the prophet and said to him, “Please hear our petition and pray to the Lord your God for this entire remnant. For as you now see, though we were once many, now only a few are left.”Prayer of Agreement, Binding and Loosing pt 2We are learning how to pray IN the Power of God, instead of our own strength or in our desperation. We are learning about the power of binding and loosing and how to amplify that power by praying in agreement with other believers. Amen! Get into agreement with other believers and get into agreement with them on the Word of God. ONLY the Word of God. Take the promises contained in God's Word and stand on them. Use the Word of God as the foundation for every prayer you pray. As I have said over and over again…if you have a problem…go to the Word and find even ONE place where God answered someone's prayer with a problem like you have…and then stand on that Word…lift that Word back to God in prayer and ask Him to Bless you with the same answer….because He is not a respecter of persons. When you do that – you are standing in Faith. Hebrews 11:1 says the “Faith is the substance of the things you are hoping for.” That word hoping does not mean “wishing.” It means you are “waiting for the thing that is assured to come to pass.” Agreement has its root word in what we would translate as “harmony.” All elements coming together in harmony. We discussed before about a symphony. Individually, the instruments may sound nice…but when you get them all together in harmony…they make a distinctive sound that is impossible to make individually. When believers come together like that…something special happens. If we can get a congregation to come together in agreement like that – something special happens. The problem today is that most churches are only worried about themselves…and is a reflection that the members of the church only worry about themselves…therefore, there is NO POWER in that church….look at your church….when is the last time your congregation got together and prayed for someone's healing – and the healing came while you were praying? Hmmm? That might be a symptom of underlying unbelief among the members…. Is your pastor addressing this issue? Hmmm…. If not, why not? I know I'm stepping on sacred toes here…but this is an important issue. Lack of power, lack of the Holy Spirit confirming the Word being preached may mean the Holy Spirit is not welcome in your church….think about that. Anyway…back to the subject matter at hand….amen! When believers come together in agreement…powerful things can happen. Look at the Book of Acts to see what happens when believers come together and pray…foundations of buildings shake! Amen! It is so important to get ourselves into agreement with other believers in order to get our prayers answered. God honors the Power of Agreement. Base your prayers on the Word of God and God will honor His Word.. Let's Pray!

Scripture For Today: Proverbs 15:8“The Lord detests the sacrifice of the wicked, but the prayer of the upright pleases him.”Prayer of Agreement, Binding and Loosing pt 1We are learning how to pray IN the Power of God, instead of our own strength or in our desperation. Let's turn over to Matthew 18:18 …now, we have laid an extensive foundation in Ephesians 6:10-18 where we were discussing about praying at all times with all types of prayer…but to save time, I want to just go to Matthew 18:18. Amen! This discusses the Law of Binding and Loosing. Ephesians 6 talks about the Principalities and powers of darkness in heavenly places. We studied that is NOT in God's Throne room – it concerns the atmosphere surrounding the earth. According to Matthew 18:18 – we can bind these wicked spirits from executing their plans against us and / or interfering with our plans to serve Jesus! Amen! So, what we bind on earth – in agreement with each other and in agreement with the Word of God – IS BOUND IN this atmospheric heaven – amen! Now, go to verse 19-20. In the midst of us carrying out this power of agreement…we need to know the context in which Jesus was teaching His disciples. Always read the Bible in context. You must always know what the situation was when the Lord gave a particular scripture….like the old adage about quoting scripture in context….the Bible says, “Judas hung himself…and another place says, “Go and do thou likewise.” So, you want to quote scripture in context – amen! Anyway…in Matthew 18:15 – we see Jesus is discussing if you have a problem with a brother – another believer….what you should do. He does not say to go and blab it all over town or put it on Facebook or whatever…NO. He says to go and talk to your brother and discuss the problem…if that does not work…get a couple of believers who will pray in agreement with you about the situation…maybe even go talk to your brother and try to help you work out the problem… and if that does not work – then go to the leaders of the church and get them to pray in agreement with you about the situation and perhaps intercede with your brother…but the important part I want to emphasize today – is getting into agreement with other believers in prayer. The power of agreement puts the angels to work in your behalf according to Hebrews 1:14. Ephesians 6 talks about NOT praying against your brother – don't do that! Our warfare IS NOT against flesh and blood – it is against the devil and those that work with him….DO NOT PRAY AGAINST OTHER PEOPLE. That is a form of witchcraft – and praying like that will do nothing to move God to work in your behalf…but it opens you up to all the demonic forces that you do not want to deal with….and the devil is so slick…he may just help you out against your brother so you think your prayer was answered…but it was not answered by God….so next time something happens…you find yourself praying the same type of prayer…but the devil is the one you actually have working in your behalf…until the time comes when you accept him into your life, your family, your finances, whatever…unknowingly…but then it is soooo hard to get him out….so don't open that door to begin with. Amen! Let's Pray!

Contract law regulates the obligations established by agreement, whether express or implied, between private parties in the United States. The law of contracts varies from state to state; there is nationwide federal contract law in certain areas, such as contracts entered into pursuant to Federal Reclamation Law. The law governing transactions involving the sale of goods has become highly standardized nationwide through widespread adoption of the Uniform Commercial Code. There remains significant diversity in the interpretation of other kinds of contracts, depending upon the extent to which a given state has codified its common law of contracts or adopted portions of the Restatement (Second) of Contracts. Formation. A contract is an agreement between two or more parties creating reciprocal obligations enforceable at law. The elements of a contract are mutual consent, offer and acceptance, consideration, and legal purpose. Agreement. Mutual consent, also known as ratification and meeting of the minds, is typically established through the process of offer and acceptance. However, contracts can also be implied in fact, as discussed below. At common law, the terms of a purported acceptance must be the "mirror image" of the terms of the offer. Any variation thereof constitutes a counteroffer. An offer is a display of willingness by a promisor to be legally bound by terms they specify, made in a way that would lead a reasonable person in the promise's position to understand that an acceptance is being sought and, if made, results in an enforceable contract. Ordinarily, an offeror is permitted to revoke their offer at any time prior to a valid acceptance. This is partially due to the maxim that an offeror is the "master of his offer." In the case of options, the general rule stated above applies even when the offeror promises to hold the offer open for a certain period of time. For example, Alice says to Bob, "I'll sell you my watch for $10, and you can have a week to decide." Alice is free to revoke her offer during the week, as long as Bob has not accepted the offer. However, if the offeree gives some separate consideration (discussed below) to keep the offer open for a certain period of time, the offeror is not permitted to revoke during that period. For example, Alice offers to sell Bob her watch for $10. Bob gives Alice $1 to keep the offer open for a week. Alice is not permitted to revoke during the week. --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/law-school/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/law-school/support

This year, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Charlottesville will be the nonprofit group that will receive a portion of the proceeds as part of a five-year partnership. The races are held on land under conservation easement. “We are focused on preserving open space to enable the broad diverse Charlottesville community to use Foxfield,” said Foxfield Executive Director Kelsey Cox in a Habitat press release. “We are overjoyed to create a long-term partnership with Habitat for Humanity of Greater Charlottesville and look forward to welcoming new and returning attendees on race day to further support this partnership with Habitat.”Mark Lorenzoni of the Ragged Mountain Running and Walking Shop penned an article in the September 25 Daily Progress that provides a lot of background and perspective as we wait for the 43rd annual fall races at Foxfield.

They’ve been meeting this month to finalize a map for the 100-seat House of Delegates and the 40-seat Virginia Senate. The sixteen members consisting of eight legislators and eight citizens must finalize their maps this Saturday in time to meet one of several deadlines in the Virginia code. The Commission’s work began as soon as the U.S. Census Bureau released population counts from 2020. Further meetings are scheduled for this Friday and Saturday, with the public hearings beginning on Monday. Coverage of what will be in those maps will come up in a future edition of Charlottesville Community Engagement. The Commission must submit maps to the General Assembly by October 10. Virginia Code also specifies nine criteria for Congressional and legislative districts. You can register to speak at the public hearings at the redistricting website. It’s now been almost two months since the U.S. Census Bureau released the official population count for the country. That’s given the Weldon Cooper Center for Public Service at the University of Virginia the time to make some observations about how the results compare to the annual estimates and regular projections their demographers make. “Our projections were higher than the actual counts in 66 localities, and lower for 67 cities and counties, indicating well-balanced results,” writes Shonel Sen in the latest edition of the Stat Chat blog that Weldon Cooper produces. The article explains the methodology used to calculate estimates and projections. Thirteen localities were in excess of a margin of error of five percent, including Charlottesville at 8.9 percent. Weldon Cooper’s 2020 estimate for Charlottesville was 49,447, but the Census count was 46,553. (2020 Weldon Cooper estimates) (Charlottesville Census quickfacts)An explanation in the footnotes of the blog post states that many college towns are perhaps undercounted due to students leaving the area at the start of the pandemic. Weldon Cooper’s 2020 estimate for Harrisonburg was 54,049, whereas the Census was 51,813. The Census Bureau’s 2019 estimate for Harrisonburg had been higher at 53,016, and 47,266 for Charlottesville.

(For my latest story on the topic, go back to the September 16, 2021 edition of this newsletter.)If the population projections put out by the Weldon Cooper Center at the University of Virginia are to be believed, the area will continue to grow for many decades. The act of planning as well as the art of land development both take place in response to anticipated needs for places to live, seats in classrooms, and ways for people to get around. In many cases, it takes a legislative decision by elected officials to approve larger residential complexes. “I personally live in an area where many apartment units have gone up and they fill quickly,” said Ned Gallaway, the chair of the Board of Supervisors. “The question is whether the infrastructure is there to support the density.” On September 15, 2021, the Board of Supervisors voted 5-1 to approve a rezoning off of U.S. 29 for 332 units on property where the county’s Comprehensive Plan has long anticipated growth and along a stretch of U.S. 29 where a $61.3 million road project was completed in October 2017. The firm RST Development agreed to restrict 75 percent of the units to households below a certain income percentage. “We talk a lot about how we are an inclusive and welcoming place to live and this is an opportunity to create a place for people to live that have not been able to live in our community,” said Supervisor Diantha McKeel.“It is part of our primary development area, and when you’re looking at the development area, it is the area where there should be a larger concentration of lower-cost and more affordable housing,” said Supervisor Donna Price. A similar conversation took place in Charlottesville the night before on September 14, 2021. That’s when the Charlottesville Planning Commission held a joint public hearing with City Council on a rezoning at 240 Stribling Avenue in the Fry’s Spring neighborhood.Southern Development seeks a rezoning to Planned Unit Development to build up to 170 units on about 12 acres of wooded land. That came after a directive at an earlier work session for the firm to increase the units in the development.“The Planning Commission told us very clearly that you wanted to see something less dense and more suburban,” said Charlie Armstrong, vice president at Southern Development. Last year, the Fry’s Spring Neighborhood Association voted on a resolution to support the rezoning if sidewalks and other infrastructure on Stribling could be built to handle the additional traffic. The current Comprehensive Plan designates the land as low density residential, which is one reason a sidewalk there has not been prioritized in the city’s limited Capital Improvement Program budget. Southern Development’s proposal would set aside 15 percent of those units for either rental or homeownership to households making below 60 percent of the area median income. They also worked with the city’s economic development team to come up with a financing structure to pay for the roadway improvements on Stribling. However, this novel approach points to a potential disconnect in the process.Armstrong negotiated an agreement with the city’s Office of Economic Development to where Southern Development would make a $2 million loan for the city to build those improvements. The city would then pay Southern Development back over a period of years out of the increased property taxes that it will receive. “I do want to be clear that this agreement is not part of the rezoning request but it does impact the area nearby and certainly of interest to many in the neighborhood,” said Economic Development director Chris Engel. "In its simplest form this agreement that the developer provides up to $2 million in funds to construct the needed improvements in a timeframe that is likely contemporaneous with the PUD development.” The cost estimate provided by Southern Development for the upgrades is around $1.6 million. City Engineer Jack Dawson only saw the agreement or the two days before the hearing and said that amount would not be enough because it did not contemplate the full extent of work required. “My concern is that probably that estime is a little light, to probably very light,” said Jack Dawson. “It isn’t just a sidewalk. It’s essentially a streetscape because when you touch a road you need to bring it up to code.” Code requires a 20 foot right of way which Dawson said would likely require the taking of private property for curb and gutter drainage, which would add to the cost. Dawson cited an internal estimate created within City Hall of $2.9 million. However, Armstrong bristled at the cost estimate provided by Dawson.“That’s not a number that I’ve ever seen published or have ever heard and we’ve been talking with the city and been in this review process with the city for months and years so I would have hoped that might have come up,” Armstrong said. Under the terms of the agreement, the city would have to pay anything in excess of $2 million but finding those funds will be difficult. Earlier this month, Council opted to transfer funding allocated for the West Main Streetscape to the $75 million reconfiguration of Buford Middle School. Budget staff said when added to the existing capital improvement program, reconfiguration will require a 15 cent tax increase next year, or less depending on how the 2022 property assessments come in. “Right now, every penny we are going to have in capital funds until we figure out something else every penny is going to get allocated for school reconfiguration,” said City Councilor Lloyd Snook. The co-president of the FSNA appreciated the work that went into the agreement but said it was not yet enough to satisfy his concerns. “There is a potential to find a solution here but there is a big but,” said Jason Halbert. “It’s about safety on that street and the JPA intersection.”Halbert said the agreement had not been fully reviewed by the appropriate staff. He asked for the project to be delayed while the details of the agreement are worked out. Commissioner Hosea Mitchell said he liked the project over all but agreed it might not be ready.“I think it could use a little more baking,” Mitchell said. “There would be value in sitting with the engineers and the economic development people and working out the details and logistics so that we know exactly what it would like before we’re going to move on it.”Another commissioner suggested the city has to do a better job of communicating better internally about coming up with innovative ways to support density. “It’s endlessly frustrating to me the degree of dysfunction within the city where the economic development is negotiating this agreement and isn’t even telling [the city engineer] about it literally two days ago,” said Commissioner Rory Stolzenberg. The issue comes at a time when new city management is just finding its feet. Deputy City Manager Sam Sanders has been on the job less than two months, and new planning director James Freas has been in his job for less than two weeks. At the same time, the city is debating a new Comprehensive Plan. The current draft encourages more density across the city. “There’s no way to support this project without having a firm grasp of how we’re going to provide these infrastructure improvements to the neighborhood,” said Councilor Heather Hill. But which comes first? The rezoning or the infrastructure? And whose cost estimate is to be believed? Southern Development’s $1.6 million, or $2.9 million from the city engineer? City attorney Lisa Robertson had this advice. “Leadership needs to put their heads together and talk about what’s realistic in terms of whether or not from inside City Hall a number can be developed that builds upon the work that Mr. Armstrong’s team has done, or clarifies it,” Robertson said. “Another function that really needs to be updated is the process by which we develop the city’s capital improvement program.”Robertson said the CIP cannot be a wish list of aspirational projects. More developed projects with more concrete estimates would provide more certainty. At the hearing, the question was whether an updated performance agreement could be completed to further scope out the project. Armstrong asked for an indefinite deferral while the agreement is worked out. What’s happened in the past two weeks?“The City is continuing to discuss the project with the developer while looking to confirm the cost estimate for the sidewalk project,” wrote Brian Wheeler, Charlottesville’s Communications Director.

Scripture For Today:Psalm 143:1“Lord, hear my prayer, listen to my cry for mercy; in your faithfulness and righteousness come to my relief.”Prayer and Miracles pt 5Yesterday, we talked about the miracle of a brother or sister in Christ that, for whatever reason, was living in and committing some type of sin. You went to them in love and they rejected you. According to scripture, you are supposed to take another brother or sisters with you again and try to reason with them. If they refuse again, we are told to take it to the church leadership. If they reject the church elders, then they are to be publicly shunned by the church membership. All of this in an effort to make them realize they are sinners that need to repent. Amen! It's not out of hate or anything like that. It's out of Love. The Love of God. Matthew 18:19-20…get into agreement with the elders…that God will open the guys eyes and he will come to his senses…but leave it alone after that…because if you keep it up and keep fussing with the guy…and let him interfere and affect your prayer life…then your prayer life won't work…and we don't want that, do we? As I get ready to close…I want to clarify what the word AGREEMENT means…the Greek word actually translates as “harmony or to harmonize and to make like a symphony.” It brings all of the individual instruments together in harmony. Jesus is in the midst of us – he is there in agreement with us…and the power of God moves in our behalf to carry out the prayer of agreement. We are a 3 part being…we are a spirit, we have a soul and we live in a body. We need to get our soul to be in agreement with our spirit…our spirit is what responds to the Word of God….it is the only part of our being that is in total agreement at all times with the Word…the Body, which is what we live in, responds only to the physical elements of the world…that is what it is designed to do. Our soul must make the decision which one it will follow…that is free will. If we decide we want to follow our flesh…then that is the direction we flow and it is the results we reap…if we want to follow the Word of God and receive what God says we can have…then we must align our soul with our spirit…and then we outnumber the body two to one…and it will follow along. We will be teaching more on that in a later broadcast…but the point I want to make sure you understand is this…we need to be in agreement between our spirit, soul and body…and we need to be in agreement between each other…and notice the word in Mathew 18:19-20….it says “THEY” shall ask…we need to ASK – and ask based upon the Word of God…amen! Not hoping and wishing…but asking in Faith. That's what I want you to do right now…I want to pray with you…if you have a need that you are looking for someone to pray in agreement with you on – this is your chance. Amen! Just pray this with me as if I was in the same room with you, putting my hand on your shoulder. Amen! There is not time nor distance with God. Let's Pray!

Twitch and the DMCA. What a pair. After 2020's deluge of music industry complaints, the game streaming platform has been scrambling both to assuage the content creators that make up its business, and to get itself out of the line of fire. With this week's announcement of an agreement with the The National Music Publishers' Association (NMPA), it's clear that one goal has won out over the other. When is a "process" both not the DMCA and also *definitely* the DMCA? In Virtual Legality.

Scripture For Today: Psalm 66:20“Praise be to God, who has not rejected my prayer or withheld His Love from me!”Prayer and Miracles pt 2Yesterday, we introduced the subject of “Prayer and Miracles.” We outlined the fact that a miracle is simply God imposing His will and actions in such a way that it overrides the natural order of things. Such as healing a broken arm in six seconds instead of six weeks. But when x-ray or an MRI is done, it looks just like an arm that had undergone the entire healing process. That was just one example. Amen! But we also discussed that it is not a good way to live if you are dependent on miracles coming your way on a daily basis – especially if it is a result of you messing things up in the natural! Ok…Like I said, I believe in miracles…I believe in signs and wonders….I walk and believe according to Mark 16:15-21….but, we also need to look at Ephesians 6:16-18 and take OUR SHIELD OF FAITH and OUR SWORD OF THE SPIRIT and we should always be praying with all different kinds of prayer…all different manners of prayer. We will be studying them…in Matthew we will see that the Prayer of Binding and Loosing is first, followed by the Prayer of Agreement….but, for clarity purposes…I want to start with the Prayer of Agreement…because I believe it will help you to grasp the rest…amen! Ok, we are wearing God's armor…praying always…every waking moment…I want you to remember our three basic points we started this series with: We do not try to get God's attention with our prayers… We do not try to change God with our prayers… We DO communicate with God with our prayers so we can receive from Him what He has already said belongs to us. Your prayer life should be your most consistent thing you do each and every day – all day long…because JESUS IS IN YOU! He said that “he and the father will come and make their abode” in each and every believer….are you a believer? If so, then GOD Himself and Jesus – is in you right now…everywhere you go, they go…everything you do – you are making them do….stop and think about the club you went to last night and who you went home with last night….if you are a believer…….hmmm…I'll leave that alone for right now…but I want you to see this…that is why I said that decisions we make affect our lives….and if we stay in a constant state of communication with God through Prayer…we avoid a lot of things that have brought strife into our hearts…some people have gone to clubs and had bad things happen to them….diseases…rapes…murders…the list goes on and on…if they would have only NOT gone to the club…these things would not have happened. I'm not saying these things to be mean…I just, again, want to bring to your attention that the decisions we make have ramifications that can last for years…. Thanks bet to God for the Blood of Jesus which cleanses us from ALL our sins…AMEN! We are not under condemnation…we are under GRACE! Amen! If what I just said convicted you of your sin…REPENT! Ask Jesus to forgive and to help you….amen! I don't know what you have gone through….I don't need to know and I don't want to know…it is between you and God through Jesus….amen!!! It is NOBODY else's business either….just you and Jesus – Jesus washes it away…and leads you to the father….and the father sees nothing but Righteousness when He sees you…amen!!! Well, I'm already over time for today, so let's stop right here. We will take it up again tomorrow. Let's Pray!
