    Paper 180 - The Farewell Discourse - Jesus' Last Discourse To His Apostles

    in Spirituality

    Are you in the mood for meaning this week? Are you hungry to be inspired by the words of Christ as we head into the renewal of Easter and the promise of springtime? It's been a long, cold winter and we're all ready for the promise of new life and the effulgent joy of spring. So celebrate with us this week on the Cosmic Citizen, in honor of Easter and in memory of Jesus, as we read Paper 180 from The Urantia Book, The Farewell Discourse. This paper is sublimely touching, superbly meaningful, eternally valuable, and deeply profound!


    The paper retells what Jesus said to his associates, knowing that he was soon to leave them. It covers these amazing sections:


    1. The New Commandment: That his followers would love one another even as he loved them, and by doing so, all men would know that they were his disciples.
    2. The Vine and the Branches: A timeless metaphor depicting the Sons of God being as branches on Jesus, the living vine.
    3. Enmity of the World: His beautiful admonition that they not be discouraged when faint-hearted believers turn away from their faith and against them.
    4. The Promised Helper: His promise to pour out the Spirit of Truth upon all flesh, a gift that would work together with God's indwelling spirit to help them remember all that he had taught them.
    5. The Spirit of Truth: An explanation of The Spirit of Truth and how it helps humans interpret their experiences in a spiritual way.
    6. The Necessity for Leaving: "If I go not away, the new teacher cannot come into your hearts. I must be divested of this mortal body and be restored to my place on high before I can send this spirit teacher to live in your souls and lead your spirits into the truth."


    We hope you tune-in and enjoy this exquisite paper with us and invite you to call to share your thoughts on the teachings!

    Study in the Book of Revelation - The Sixth Seal & Christ's Olivet Discourse

    in The Bible

    On our jouney today in the Book of Revelation Chapter 6, we will study the meaning of the Sixth Seal and Christ's "Olivet Discourse." Hold on to your seats, the "DAY OF JUDGMENT" has come as God's wrath is unleased against a godless and unrepentent world.

    Olivet Discourse, Pt. 1—Matt. 24:1–14 on Probing the Prophets with Rod MacArthur

    in Religion

    When His disciples asked in amazement about the great stones of their temple being thrown to the ground, Jesus answered questions about the Temple's destruction and His coming at the "end."


    This discourse is commonly known as the "Olivet Discourse"; covering two full chapters, Matthew 24 & 25.


    Rather than take the "popular" position that this discourse was about two separate "comings" of Jesus, Rod will present the view that Jesus only had in mind His coming to pour out God's wrath upon Jerusalem and all the Jews in order to fulfill prophecy and bring their covenant with Him to an irreversible end in AD 70.


    Consistency and continuity of prophecy and fulfillment are keys to grasping Jesus' intent in this discourse.

    Olivet Discourse Pt. 4: Matt. 24:35-51—Watching for the "Flood"

    in Religion

    Matthew 24 & 25 is commonly known as the "Olivet Discourse."


    In previous discussions we've noted that Jesus related events associated with His coming to pour out God's wrath upon Jerusalem and all the Jews in order to fulfill prophecy and bring their covenant with Him to an irreversible end in AD 70. He was to "come with the clouds" to consume the flesh of the carcase and to "gather" His elect into the new covenant relationship with Him.


    In today's discussion we'll look at two illustrations which prompted the urgency of that generation to be alert for the great and awesome "day of the Lord." It also sets the stage for applying the two opening parables of chp. 25. Those illustrations are "the flood" and "the faithful and sensible slave."


    As always, we insist that the teachings of Jesus and His apostles are not merely based on the prophets; but they are the God-inspired words which show a promise-keeping God fulfilling His word!

    Olivet Discourse, Pt. 3—Matt. 24:32–51, "Watchfulness" on Probing the Prophets

    in Religion

    Matthew 24 & 25 is commonly known as the "Olivet Discourse."


    Rather than take the "popular" position that this discourse was about two separate "comings" of Jesus, Rod presents the view that Jesus only had in mind His coming to pour out God's wrath upon Jerusalem and all the Jews in order to fulfill prophecy and bring their covenant with Him to an irreversible end in AD 70.

    Olivet Discourse, Pt. 2—Matt. 24:15–31; The Great Tribulation

    in Religion

    When His disciples asked in amazement about the great stones of their temple being thrown to the ground, Jesus answered questions about the Temple's destruction and His coming at the "end." They saw "the end" as being when the Temple was destroyed. Jesus did not "correct" them in this conclusion; rather, He embraced it and built on it.


    This discourse is commonly known as the "Olivet Discourse"; covering two full chapters, Matthew 24 & 25.

    Critical Discourse-Do Black Lives REALLY Matter? Illegal Immigration Outpouring

    in Current Events

    In November, Barack Obama signed an Executive Order which essentially signified amnesty to upwards of 5 million illegal immigrants; a move pretty much, was of no surprise.


    But, this month, U.S. District Court Judge Andrew Hannon issued an injunction, staying the Order, where he agreed that 26 states who filed the suit, could suffer a financial burden.


    As expected, the Obama Administration appealed.


    In a statement read before the House, in its Department of Homeland Security (DHS) hearings, Jamiel Shaw, gave a powerful testimony which covered two bases; the devastating impact of an out of control immigration policy and the sincerity of those who've furthered the mantra, "black lives matter".


    In 2008, his son, Jamiel Andre Shaw II, was murdered by an illegal immigrant from Mexico.


    Mr. Shaw asked the critical question, DO BLACK LIVES REALLY MATTER, OR DOES IT MATTER, ONLY IF YOU'RE SHOT BY A WHITE PERSON OR WHITE POLICEMAN....?


    We will review both topics and the perceived interconnect ability between the two, which frankly, is part of an ongoing discourse that has transpired on Critical Discourse, sans the illegal immigration aspect.


    We also may cover the frustration that former NFL-player, Kermit Alexander has been dealing with, in light of the murderer of his mother, sister and nephews, has yet to be executed, despite the verdict and sentence.


    BLACK LIVES MATTER!


    BUT, DO YOU REALLY BELIEVE IT?

    Dr. Nartey Back in the House / Branch of Critical Discourse

    in Nutrition

    Peace and Blessings!


    We were so impressed and moved by Dr. Narrtey and the information he imparted 2 weeks ago, that we're brinigng him back to "Prime Time" - Critical Discourse.


    We are truly blessed and fortunate to have such a brother in our midst, who is having a great impact on how we process nutrition and overall well-being. If I had any regrets at this point, is that the lines aren't jammed with inquiring minds, regarding Dr. Nartey and the American School of Symptometry.


    We plan to go even deeper into this science, and come out of this better, stronger and more alive, than ever; a perfect opportunity, as we are a little over a month into 2015.


    Invite your frinds, family and neighbors, but most important:


    BE THERE!

    Critical Discourse: Omawale El-Hajj Malik Shabazz (Malcolm X)

    in History

    As Saturday, February 21st. will mark the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Brother/Minister/Revolutionary Malcolm X.


    Yet given his magnanamous impact, it was as if this was only yesterday.


    A rough and horror-filled childhood and aimless, early adulthood, set into motion his pathway to becoming a most excellent helper of the Hon. Elijah Muhammad and the NOI.


    But, it was the challenges that came with such a responsibilty and in many ways, a manifestation of what we as black people in America have become after slavery, that caused the bitter and unfortunate separation from the NOI.


    But being the man he was, molded in the finest steel and timbre, Malcolm remained committed to the struggle for Freedom, Justice and Equality, here in the DIaspora and abroad, in his desire to unify the Inigenous African with the African-American.


    On Critical Discourse, we will examine his life and legacy, never overlooking his devotion to Al-Islam añd his global, de-colonized mind, which even today, far outshadows the host of present-day charlatans, passing as leaders, commissioned to lead our people into the  morass of spiritual, moral and intellectual bondage.


    For what we learn about the life and death of Omawale Malik Shabazz, helps us to appreciate our own past, present and future.
