SORT BY Relevancy
The second census of the Israelites is done in this chapter. In verses 64 and 65, it says:
"Not one person on this list had been among those listed in the previous registration taken by Moses and Aaron in the wilderness of Sinai. For the Lord had said of them, "They will all die in the wilderness." Not one of them survived except Caleb son of Jephunneh and Joshua son of Nun.
The first census represented a generation that could have gone into the Promised Land but refused to walk in faith. God still accomplished His will but with a whole new generation that had a new mindset.
God is preparing to move His people into the Promised Land, and the first step He takes is to take a census. God organizes the people, which will make it easier for them to gather for battle as well as keep their stay in the wilderness orderly.
Overview of Numbers: At this point it has been about a year since they left Egypt. God's intention is to lead them directly into their land of Promise. But the people rebel and disobey. This book covers 38 years, as the Israelites wander in the wilderness literally to wait until the disobedient generation dies off.
New and updated data made available by the Census Bureau informs us that there's been a shift going on in our nation.
The Census Bureau is now including information on same sex couples who are married with a license.
In a recent article from the U.S. Census, the number of legally married same-sex couple households increased from approximately 182,000 in 2012 to approximately 252,000 in 2013.
It's high time for the Bold Believers to come together and take a stand to get as many souls set free and minds transformed and renewed through The Love of Christ!

The 1491 Census: Native Creates Tribal Nations Map of Turtle Island
It took him 14 years and thousands of hours, but Aaron Carapella finally did it. He created a map that represents what Turtle Island looked like in 1490. It shows where roughly 590 Native nations were located and gives their indigenous names, instead of the names given by Europeans.
Being part Cherokee, or Aniyunwiyah, and having grown up in the city, he’s always sought more knowledge of Native history and culture.
“I would attend pow pows and scour through the items vendors had for sell [sic]. From time to time I would see maps of the traditional territories of our tribes, but thought they looked incomplete, and the names mostly inaccurate. I filed away the idea of one day creating a more authentic-looking one myself,” Carapella says on his website. “Years went by as I looked from time to time for a better map. One day I decided, ‘It’s time to make a REAL map of Native America, as WE see it.’ It started with four poster boards and a rough pencil drawing of the United States. Over the next 14 years I would create the Tribal Nations Map.”
The process of collecting the real names of tribes was a tedious one. He studied books, and called tribes individually.
“Some tribes, once contacted, wouldn’t know that information,” he told the Tulalip News. But the tribe always got back to him with someone who could tell him what he needed to know to continue his research.
We have said for two shows now that young people and young professionals are often ignored. We will discuss in detail why that is and how communities are not aging gracefully because of this. Too many communities are getting left behind because of their failure to evolve. Join us!

Census figures indicate growing numbers of Latino citizens, based on new births and new immigrants. On issues such as immigration reform, multilingual education and minority set aside programs for contractors, African Americans and Latinos often find themselves pitted against each other as rivals for jobs, contracts and economic resources. Among men, both groups are often the recipients of racial profiling and media stereotyping as criminals. There are white gangs as well as African American and Latino gangs, yet when issues of gang violence are addressed white males are not the targets of police crackdowns, black and Latino males are. Chicago Mayoral candidates Jesus "Chuy" Garcia and William "Dock" Walls address the relationship between African Americans and Latinos and how it will affect this year's election.

Now in 2015, Kevin Costner's new film Black or White illustrates that America's portrait of race and identity has evolved. Set in Los Angeles, the movie offers a look into the life of an interracial family and the custody battle over a biracial child (a demographic rarely center-stage in mainstream cinema), which will undoubtedly prompt expanded conversations about how race is defined in the United States and who gets to define it. It grapples with issues that mixed-race communities face all the time from outsiders: What about the children? Where do they belong? With their black family or their white family? And what happens when both families are just as fit?
As I grew up I would soon come to understand that my "biracial" identity was perilous, with both social and political ramifications for those around me. I'd be called a race traitor by some blacks for refusing to self-identify as anything mixed-race or biracial. Didn't matter that both parents raised me, or that my white mother and I had the closest of mother-daughter relationships. My checking any box on the Census other than "Black" would endanger the plight of many civil rights activists and organizations with regard to civil rights appropriations. Never mind that these same boxes are used by our nation's Department of Education to adequately provide multicultural resources into schools accommodating the social development and inclusion of biracial children and their families.
Whether or not you believe in God is one thing. And there is still quite a debate to the existence of life from a man many call the Saviour, in Jesus Christ. Those who are of religion believe Jesus, the son of God, did once walk the earth. Skeptics believe differently. However, there may be one piece of evidence, which has been debated since it's finding, that may link the Jesus to life on earth. The Shroud of Turin continues to be a source of contraversy since being discovered. Expert, and editor of shroud.com, Barrie Schwortz will detail whether or not the image of the crucifed man on the shroud is or is not Jesus of Nazereth. Believers will admittedly say the imprint on the shroud looks like the image of Christ, himself. But because there was no record to prove or disprove this theory, because there was no census, the shroud is a leader in religious contraversy to this day.
