Privilege of Dying
Father, I want those you have given me to be with me where I am, and to see my glory, the glory you have given me because you loved me before the creation of the world. John 17:24
If I really believe what I believe as a follower of Jesus, it is much better to be on the other side of death—in person with Jesus. My body is a temporary home for my soul where I commune with Christ, but death releases me to be with Jesus and experience His perfect love and radiant glory. Dying is a divine privilege. Death is a portal to eternal life and dying facilitates a faithful life on earth.
Jesus prays to His heavenly Father on behalf of His followers. He prays for them to be with Him in heaven. It is a prayer of peace and security knowing to be absent from the body is to be present with the Lord (2 Corinthians 5:8). Facing imminent death, Jesus prays for these dear ones to know the assurance of soon seeing their Savior face to face. Dying is not a lonesome final act for those who know Jesus, it is an encore into eternity. Jesus reassured His disciples by the promise of His presence. Yes, dying is a privilege for those privileged to be a child of God.
Is dying a far off event in your mind or is it up close and personal? In either case it’s vital to stay intimately familiar with your life in Christ. Your robust relationship with Jesus gives you courage to discuss death. A heart tender to the Lord prays for opportunities to have caring conversations with the dying. Funerals are not avoided but attended in order to honor the deceased and to be reminded of what’s really important in life. A soul satisfied by Christ is able to walk with Him through the valley of the shadow of death. Dying can be ugly, but beauty awaits Jesus believers.

The magical story of no interceptions is over and now the media can focus on the Green Bay Packers defense. Although St. Louis Rams running back Todd Gurley rushed for 159 yards, Nick Foles threw four interceptions and the Packers won 24-10. The Packers defense now ranks third in points allowed per game, only allowing 16.2. Foles was sacked three times, but was under constant pressure and ended the day 11 of 30 for 141 yards. By winning the line early, the Rams fed the ball to Gurley to slow down the pass rush. Subtract the 55 yard galevant, the Packers held Gurley to 3.6 yards per carry. Rookie Quinten Rollins intercepted Foles, in the first quarter, and returned it 45 yards to give the Packers a 14-0 lead. Two interceptions inside the red zone helped secure the victory.
Aaron Rodgers had a ball tipped and intercpeted by James Lauranitis to end his streak at 587 passes without an interception at home. Rodgers ended the day with modest numbers 19 of 30 for 241 yards. The big play was a 65 yard touchdown pass to James Jones. Initially Jones was ruled down at the one yard line but Mike McCarthy challenged the pay. The ruling on the field was overturned and Jones was credited with his fifth touchdown of the year. Eddie Lacey found little running room against the Rams. His long run of the day was eight yards, and he finished with 27 rushing yards. Rodgers led the team in rushing with 39 yards.
The Rams fall to 2-3 and will enjoy a bye week before hosting the Cleveland Browns. Green Bay improved to 5-0 and will host the San Diego Chargers next week.
I have no intention of leaving America to live in Africa and I will not separate myself from this land to appease any one not even Farrakahn. I find his explanation for the actual circumstance under which our sisters of the Nation of Islam and their children were treated is a contradiction of the facts. So I have copied the so called accounts of the FBI mention in the book The Judas Factor: “The FBI had learned form wiretaps on Elijah Muhammad had fathered illegitimate children by several of his former secretaries, including two who had been given rigged “trials” for their sinful behavior, with Elijah Muhammad as judge Muhammad ruled that “they didn’t know who the fathers of their children were, suggesting promiscuity a violation of Islamic law, and the secretaries had been expelled from the Nation of Islam. Armed with this information, FBI agents had spread rumors about it by the unusually direct method of buttonholing Nation of Islam members and asking them if they were aware that Minister Elijah Muhammad was the farther of several illegitimate children by his secretaries.
At the time of MalcolmX’s suspension, Wallace Muhammad had been conjuring with Malcolm X about rumors. What either Malcom X nor Wallace Muhammad knew was that the Messenger was well informed about the status of their supposedly secret probe into his sexual misconduct.” Now all the rest is History, and a funny thing about history is it can’t be truthfully changed. Where is the “Justice or Else?” Wait a minute did I miss something? Or did Farrakhan pull the biggest Money Scam, again on the people? Revolutionaries do not say Justice or else unless they mean to declare war on an unjust system, in our research we learned that Phenomena has oppositions. That language has terms that are diametrically opposed to one another the term peace is diametrically opposed to the term War.

Dameon Aranda and Gabe Aranda started their first band in the 5th grade. They were inspired by their parents favorite musicians: Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Janis Joplin, The Beatles, Elvis Presley and Cat Stevens. On their first release, the self-taught musicians worked with the Grammy nominated production team of Sam Watters and Louis Biancaniello. 2009 saw Aranda’s first charting single, “Still in the Dark,” break into the Top 30 chart for active rock radio across the country. That same year, Dameon Aranda received an unexpected phone call from Kelly Clarkson, asking if she could cover two of Aranda’s songs on her album, All I Ever Wanted-including the high-energy in your face rebel song, “Whyyawannabringmedown.” This song was selected by the WWE as the theme song for the pay per view event, The Bash, and “All I Ever Wanted” became the title track of Clarkson’s album. Soon after, Aranda released their second album, Stop the World, which was produced by Grammy nominated producer, Johnny K, (Disturbed, Staind, Sevendust and Drowning Pool.) They embarked on a nationwide tour with Daughtry and 3 Doors Down. There are elements of “Stop the World” on Aranda’s forthcoming release, Not the Same. The band is taking their life experiences, the changes they have gone through and channeling all the emotional feelings into a collection of songs that will introduce fans to a rebirth of Aranda.The 11 new songs, including one stripped down acoustic and one self proclaimed “disco-y pseudo rock track”, are each their own piece to a larger story about a journey that overcomes darkness. Not the Same will be your own personal light at the end of the tunnel. Aranda brings their message of hope and optimism to their audience. For more information, visit www.facebook.com/arandaband
We all have walked in blindness at some point in our lives. There are all kinds of blindness, which we face as individuals. Sometimes our blindness seems okay to us, just as Saul thought he was doing the right thing persecuting people who believed in "the Way," which is Christ Jesus. In John14:6 Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." Saul had to learn this valuable lesson through true blindness. But once his sight was restored he had learned, "the way (Jesus), the truth (Jesus is the son of God), the life (Jesus gave up his earthly life, for us; that he rose from the dead and sets on the right hand of God, interceding for us). Through the amazing grace of Christ Jesus, I came out of blindness and can see his love for me. Come join us in bible study on "Moving Forward with Minister Brigitte," and Sister Carolyn as we take you on a journey through the word of God.

Counterspin (30 min.) See: http://fair.org Description:The Pentagon has declared the bombing of a hospital in Kunduz, Afghanistan, a “mistake.” But it will investigate itself to determine how US bombs came to destroy the Doctors Without Borders facility, killing at least 22 people. Doctors Without Borders is calling for an independent investigation—and you would think journalists would, too, since who knows better than they the administration’s history of changing its story? We’ll hear from Phyllis Bennis of the Institute for Policy Studies.
