    The Organization of the Church, Part 2 (The History of Christianity #72)

    in Religion

    Our History of Christianity Scripture verse today is 1 Timothy 5:3 which reads: "Honour widows that are widows indeed."

    Our History of Christianity quote today is from Ignatius of Antioch. He said: "But it is fitting for both men and women who marry to form their union with the approval of the bishop, that their marriage may be according to God, and not after their own lust."

    Today, in the History of Christianity, we are looking at "Christian Life" (Part 9) from Dr. Justo L. Gonzalez's fine book, The Story of Christianity (Volume 1).

    The Organization of the Church (Part 2)

    When speaking of women in the early church, mention should be made of the particular role of widows. The book of Acts says that the primitive church helped support the widows in its midst. This was in part an act of obedience to the repeated Old Testament injunction to care for the widow, the orphan, the poor, and the sojourner. But it was also a matter of practical necessity, for a widow deprived of means of support either had to remarry or to seek refuge with her children. In either case, if the new husband or the child was not a Christian, the widow would be severely limited in her Christian life. Therefore, it soon became customary for the church to support its widows, and to give them particular responsibilities. In an earlier broadcast, the story was told of a widow whose ministry was such that she enraged the pagans, and therefore became a martyr. Other widows devoted themselves to the instruction of catechumens. Eventually, the meaning of the word "widow" within the church changed and came to refer not just to a woman whose husband had died but also to any unmarried woman who was supported by the community and who in turn performed some particular functions within it...

Glory to God!  People are suffering, hurting, being abused, molested and abandon within the nations.

     Ezekiel 22:29-30 says...The people of the land have practiced oppression and committed robbery, and they have wronged the poor and needy and haveoppressed the sojourner without justice. 30 I searched for a man among them who wouldbuild up the wall and stand in the gap before Me for the land, so that I would not destroy it; but I found no one. Will you go, will you stand, will you prayer!!!!

    Are you considering your ways?

    in Spirituality

    Psalm 39:1-13 (KJV)
    1 I said, I will take heed to my ways, that I sin not with my tongue: I will keep my mouth with a bridle, while the wicked is before me.
    2 I was dumb with silence, I held my peace, even from good; and my sorrow was stirred.
    3 My heart was hot within me, while I was musing the fire burned: then spake I with my tongue,
    4 LORD, make me to know mine end, and the measure of my days, what it is; that I may know how frail I am.
    5 Behold, thou hast made my days as an handbreadth; and mine age is as nothing before thee: verily every man at his best state is altogether vanity. Selah.
    6 Surely every man walketh in a vain shew: surely they are disquieted in vain: he heapeth up riches, and knoweth not who shall gather them.
    7 And now, Lord, what wait I for? my hope is in thee.
    8 Deliver me from all my transgressions: make me not the reproach of the foolish.
    9 I was dumb, I opened not my mouth; because thou didst it.
    10 Remove thy stroke away from me: I am consumed by the blow of thine hand.
    11 When thou with rebukes dost correct man for iniquity, thou makest his beauty to consume away like a moth: surely every man is vanity. Selah.
    12 Hear my prayer, O LORD, and give ear unto my cry; hold not thy peace at my tears: for I am a stranger with thee, and a sojourner, as all my fathers were.
    13 O spare me, that I may recover strength, before I go hence, and be no more.

    The Unceasing Campaign of The Master Seraphim-Destiny 2 [5of6 REPRISE 6/22/2013]

    in Spirituality

    Cosmic Citizen proceeded with our exploration of Seraphic Planetary Government. We'll reprise Paper 114 §6 The Master Seraphim of Planetary Supervision and immediately move to our resumption with  "The Unceasing Campaign of The Master Seraphim" with Neal Waldrop.  Your host Paula Thompson and cohosts Christilyn Larson and André Radatus followed Neal's lead through this remarkable study.
    We continued with Part V: Destiny in the context of origins and history.

    Among other questions we asked:

    •What kinds of thinking can we do to expand our time-consciousness from that of a two-week-to-three-month orientation to thinking in terms of decades and centuries?
    •If we assume that endemic impatience really is an issue and perhaps an obstacle, what could the master seraphim do to neutralize or deflect it?
    •How does the question of impatience compare with other challenges that the master seraphim must endeavor to overcome?

    The discussion got quite interesting as we explored the implications of all these questions.

    We recommend that those who listen in and desire to get ahead on this detailed study do so by visiting the following link and downloading copies of Neal Waldrop’s study guide on this rich topic:

    This is a repeat episode and not live so please only call in to listen.
    The angels and many other celestial helpers who care for us are among us.  Let's get this material “under our belts” about our heavenly helpers, created "just a little above us," and try to understand how we might help them in their service on Earth.
    See you Saturday morning at 9:00 Pacific; noon Eastern!

    Original founder and leader of
    “The Floaters” with Miss Diamond 

    Larry Cunningham

    The man that organized and fronted the multi-platinum selling vocal group from Detroit has musically vented!

    Larry has spent the last 15 years writing his testimony and his latest accomplishment “The Essence of Grace” is his musical story come to fruition. 

    The Floaters were an African-American R&B vocal group, from the Sojourner Truth housing projects in Detroit, Michigan, that formed in 1976. The group are best known for their 1977 song "Float On", which reached #2 on the Billboard Hot 100, #1 on the UK Singles Chart, and #5 on the Irish Singles Chart.

    The band was formed by the former The Detroit Emeralds' singer James Mitchell, with his brother Paul Mitchell, Larry Cunningham, Charles Clark, and the unrelated Ralph Mitchell. Most of The Floaters were from the Sojourner Truth housing project on Detroit's Eastside.
    James Mitchell wrote the band's one major hit, "Float On", with Arnold Ingram and Marvin Willis. The lyrics spotlight each member of the band, who introduced themselves with their name, astrological sign, and ideal type of romantic partner.The song was produced by Woody Wilson. It became a world wide hit in 1977 on ABC Records, reaching #1 on the US R&B chart, #2 on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart, and #1 in the UK Singles Chart (for a single week in August that year).
    Follow-ups such as "You Don't Have to Say You Love Me" (#28 Billboard R&B chart) were not as successful. The group continued to record, releasing four studio albums over the next few years.
    A new recording of the song "Float On" was recorded in 2001 for the album Still Standing by the group Full Force.
    This song was also sampled by Canadian hip hop recording duo Dream Warriors, in their song of the same name
