SORT BY Relevancy
Special Guest: Tim Russo, Atttorney
Thursday February 27th 2014 – Moral Courage: Standing Up for What is Right and Especially Against the Majority with Guest Tim Russo, Candidate for Ohio's Cuyahoga County Executive.
This week, our activist theme is for us all to stand up and take action in person no matter the controversy of your activism – no matter if it is giving testimony to your state legislators, voicing opinions at political town hall meetings, street protesting, or giving radio interviews – it’s time to get up from your internet activism and take it to the streets.
As our guest this Thursday, we welcome the intelligent and controversial political activist Mr. Tim Russo, a Candidate for Ohio’s Cuyahoga County Executive in the just ahead 2014 county election cycle. You can visit his website at http://www.timrusso.org/. Tim, is a long time Ohio-based Democrat activist, has campaigned to take the money out of county politics.
Previously in 2010, Tim ran for a Cuyahoga County Council seat with the slogan “time to no longer be defined by our mistakes.” That slogan was in reference to his already time-served sex felony conviction where he was sentenced to a year of probation. But that did not stop him. Since his societal debt was paid, he was free to pursue life’s opportunities as any other normal American citizen.
In that 2010 race, he received 730 out of 6,128 votes. Mr. Russo placed 4th in a field of 9 candidates seeking the Democrat nomination for the seat. He worked as a campaign consultant for U.S. Congressman Tim Ryan, presidential candidates John Kerry and Barack Obama, and British Prime Minister Tony Blair.
Pastor Brad Morgan of New Life Beginnings Church in Pattison, TX continues to share about God's Suddenlies. God is going to do some things that are not gradual, but they will happen suddenly. One of the way that suddenlies come is the declaration of the word of God. Pastor Brad speaks from Numbers 13 about the rising up of man in this time. In these verses it says "be of good courage." Courage is something that God puts in us. God tells us to be of good courage because He knows fear can come against you. Fear will seek to talk you out of the assignement God has given you. Fear is a sin and does not come from God. People of God need to be people of persistence. Stand and watch the gift of faith be stirred within you. The are obstacles, giants that stand in your way, but God tells you, "you are well able."
Living for the Lord Jesus Christ demands strength and courage. Expect opposition in your journey as you follow your master serving Him. God gave His servant Joshua powerful counsel telling him to "be strong and of good courage." In addition, He promised Joshua that He would be with him at all times. If you're in Christ, the Lord is with you also because His name is Emmanuel meaning "God with us." Joshua was required, for success, to meditate on God's Word day and night and keep it in his mouth. History records Joshua's success in his God-given assignment. You too will succeed. Join us for live prayer Mon.-Fri. at 6:00 AM. Dial 714 459-3963 or log on to blogtalkradio/maximum-radio.

President John F. Kennedy delivered this speech, "Special Message to the Congress on Urgent National Needs," on May 25, 1961 before a joint session of Congress.
"landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to the earth"
Kennedy declared the goal long before it was a reality.
The DECLARATION PROCEEDS THE LEAP!
“Faith has to do with things that are not seen and hope with things that are not at hand.” Thomas Aquinas.
2 Corinthians 5:7 - "We walk by faith, not by sight."
"So we are always of good courage. We know that while we are at home in the body we are away from the Lord, for we walk by faith, not by sight." This is the ESV translation; other versions use the word "live" instead of "walk". Either way, it means the same thing. "Walk" is a metaphor for the way a person lives his or her life.
One night a house caught fire and a young boy was forced to flee to the roof. The father stood on the ground below with outstretched arms, calling to his son, "Jump! I'll catch you." He knew the boy had to jump to save his life. All the boy could see, however, was flame, smoke, and blackness. As can be imagined, he was afraid to leave the roof. His father kept yelling: "Jump! I will catch you." But the boy protested, "Daddy, I can't see you." The father replied, "But I can see you and that's all that matters."
God says TRUST ME even though you can’t see what you’re going to land!
This you know, my beloved brethren. But everyone must be quick to hear, slow to speak and slow to anger; for the anger of man does not achieve the righteousness of God. Therefore, putting aside all filthiness and all that remains of wickedness, in humility receive the word implanted, which is able to save your souls. But prove yourselves doers of the word, and not merely hearers who delude themselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks at his natural face in a mirror; for once he has looked at himself and gone away, he has immediately forgotten what kind of person he was. But one who looks intently at the perfect law, the law of liberty, and abides by it, not having become a forgetful hearer but an effectual doer, this man will be blessed in what he does.
If anyone thinks himself to be religious, and yet does not bridle his tongue but deceives his own heart, this man’s religion is worthless. Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world.
Religion is a set of beliefs, a form of worship, ritual, prayer and a code of moral behavior. True faith in God, moral standards and good works are important in relation to a biblical understanding of true religion, which is contrasted with the false religion of paganism.
Belief can easily be misdirected and become superstition. Belief by itself is insufficient for salvation. Worship. Ritual. Prayer. Code of behavior. Religious people do not always see the inconsistencies in their behavior. True religious practice. Moral standards. Good works.
Orphans in Hebrew of the Old Testament means desolate and without protectors. The same Greek word in the New Testament is rendered fatherless.

Tune in as Sister Jenna reflects on evolving our consciousness and shares special meditations.
"If we don't evolve in consciousness, we will certainly become extinct. Our own vices within will destroy whatever wattage of light is left inside us. Perhaps, one of our greatest lessons of these times is to adapt towards an evolutionary state of consciousness or cease to exist." – Sister Jenna
A sign that we are evolving is that our negatives start to dissolve. We become more conscious of thoughts and feelings, more self-reflective, and our presence becomes softer. We become sensitized to the workings of our inner being and how its vibrations manifest the world of circumstances around us.

THIS WEEK’S MESSAGE: Whether you like it or not, major events in life happen and then come the circumstances. Samuel Lover, the famed songwriter, composer and novelist, once said “Circumstances are the rulers of the weak; they are but the instruments of the wise.” Getting a good grasp of the role that events and circumstances play in your life is essential to you understanding how to shape more positive outcomes to challenging situations. Achieving this level of consciousness is also essential to you recognizing and valuing the difference between responding versus simply reacting to a circumstance. During the month of November, Life Changing Talk Radio will interview noted authors and interesting personalities who have developed unique approaches to crafting their responses to some of life’s most challenging and perplexing circumstances. Through their knowledge, courage, commitment, faith and determination they have and continue to make a difference not only in their lives but also in the lives of so many others.
Processing the Pain with Coach D
Minister D through her own life experiences realized that due to unprocessed pain in her life and the lives of other believer that we are not moving forward with urgency to fulfill the Great Commission. The enemy is not stagnate in GOD’s assignment and is moving along at an alarming speed and is being blatant and unsubtle in his approach. OH but GOD is raising up warriors in these last days that are Whole, Radical, that are Blatant about what they believe, that will hearken diligently and obey the commands and instructions of the Lord, that will invade the enemy camp and take by force all that has been stolen. Matt 11:1 and 11:12. It’s time for the body to stop throwing their wounded to the wayside, but rather get them healed, whole and in position for Spiritual Warfare. We can no longer be stagnate, paralyzed with fear due to life’s pains thus we begin to
PROCESS THE PAIN

What is the story behind Deborah and Barak in Judges chapter 4 & 5? Well we will look at the courageous work of the both of them together in conquering the Canaanites as God commanded in prior chapters. How we coward back because of fear and become useless for the work or call of God, this is not what He has called us to do. According to 2 Timothy 1:7 says "For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind", so Children of God are to take courage, trust and obey the will of God because of his sovereignty. Pastor Michael Crow and Carnita Smith will continue with the study of "Here Comes the Judge!" series 3.
In 2014 The Fearless Are Redeemed!
Isaiah 43:1 But now thus saith the LORD that created thee, O Jacob, and He that formed thee, O Israel, Fear not: for I have redeemed thee, I have called thee by thy name; thou art mine.
This year is the time for the rebirthing of new thoughts, new attitude, new actions and responses. To rebirth is to move forward, to let go of that which was old and birth that which is to become new. How much are you willing to let go? How much are you ready to change? What will it take to change?... A THOUGHT...IT'S A MIND THING! (Cass)
