Samuel Gist was a resident of Great Britain and Virginia. In his will, Gist insisted his daughter free all the slaves she owned on the Gould Hill Plantation in Virginia. She complied and establish 6 free Gist Settlements throughout Ohio. Many of the descendants of the enslaved Gist settlers still live on the settlement.
Samuel Gist was orphaned. In 1739, he was shipped to Virginia where he was indentured.

God doesn't base his opinion of people on their personality or appearance, as the world tends to do. Instead, God looks upon the heart. He informs Samuel of his plan to replace King Saul with David, a man after His own heart.
1 Samuel 16:6-7New King James Version (NKJV)
6 So it was, when they came, that he looked at Eliab and said, “Surely the Lord’s anointed is before Him!”
7 But the Lord said to Samuel, “Do not look at his appearance or at his physical stature, because I have refused him. For the Lord does not see as man sees;[a] for man looks at the outward appearance, but the Lord looks at the heart.”
Bordentown School -volunteers needed - restoration underway with volunteer electrical contractor John White! A museum on the once thriving black school's cam[us kknown as The Tuskegee of The North is John's Mission.
The Bordentown school, was originally established in 1886 by Rev. W. A. Rice, a minister of the African Methodist Episcopal Church, as a private institution under the name of New Brunswick Technical School. It was later called "The Ironsides Normal School." in honor of Commodore Stewart the benefactor of t Bordentown's Campus, his 350 acre estate .
Reverend Walter A.S. Rice of the African Methodist Episcopal Church in New Brunswick founded the Bordentown School in 1876 as New Brunswick Technical Institute a privately supported educational entity. Reverend Rice’s mission was to educate African American students of both sexes and train them “in such industries as shall enable them to become self-supporting”. The school was founded just five years after the famous Tuskegee Institute in Alabama was formed. It was known as the Tuskegee of The North"
The school relocated to Bordentown City in 1886, where it was shrewdly renamed and incorporated as the New Jersey Manual Training and Industrial School for Colored Youth. The name change from Technical Institute to Manual Training was an insult to the founders and it was the beginning of the propaganda campaign against black educational institutions, as a continuation of slave labor. The donor of the property, Commander Stewart, the oldest enlistee in the Civil War and an Irish activist demanded in his will that his property be used for training purposes- the State of New Jersey believes they meet the requirements, insofar as they offer training courses to their detainees.
Saul really messes up big time in this passage and is officially rejected as king, through the word of Samuel, the judge and priest of Israel.
1 Samuel 15:22-23New King James Version (NKJV)
22 So Samuel said:
“Has the Lord as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices,
As in obeying the voice of the Lord?
Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice,
And to heed than the fat of rams.
23 For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft,
And stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry.
Because you have rejected the word of the Lord,
He also has rejected you from being king.”

In this passage, King Saul makes an utterly ridiculous vow that encompassed the entire nation. No one was to eat food until the enemies were destroyed, but the troops became very weak without needed sustenance. Then the king made a further vow that would have resulted in his son being killed except the people could not stand by and watch the king follow through with his utter foolishness.
1 Samuel 14:24-27New King James Version (NKJV)
Saul’s Rash Oath
24 And the men of Israel were distressed that day, for Saul had placed the people under oath, saying, “Cursed is the man who eats any food until evening, before I have taken vengeance on my enemies.” So none of the people tasted food. 25 Now all the people of the land came to a forest; and there was honey on the ground. 26 And when the people had come into the woods, there was the honey, dripping; but no one put his hand to his mouth, for the people feared the oath. 27 But Jonathan had not heard his father charge the people with the oath; therefore he stretched out the end of the rod that wasin his hand and dipped it in a honeycomb, and put his hand to his mouth; and his countenance brightened.
Join The Gist of Freedom, www.BlackHistoryBlog.com, as we continue our audio book reading Breaking The Chains by William L. Katz - Chapter 5 Urban Slave Resistance~ Jordan Hatcher was a seventeen-year-old enslaved tobacco worker in Richmond, Virginia, who in 1852 rose from obscurity to notoriety when charged with assaulting and killing white overseer William Jackson. According to newspaper accounts and trial records, Hatcher was working at the Walker & Harris tobacco factory when Jackson began flogging him with a cowhide for performing poorly. Hatcher initially warded off the blows, but Jackson continued to beat him. In response Hatcher grabbed an iron poker, struck Jackson unconscious, and immediately fled the factory. When Jackson later awoke, he claimed to feel no pain, but the next day he collapsed and died. Hatcher was immediately found, arrested, tried and sentenced to execution. His sentence, however, was later commuted by Virginia Governor Joseph Johnson, and he was sold and transported beyond the limits of the United States.
This case is significant because of Jordan Hatcher’s unusual working and living conditions. Hatcher was a hired slave; though legally bound to Parmella Goday of Chesterfield County, Hatcher had been hired-out to a tobacco manufactory for the year. During that year, Hatcher, like hundreds of other hired slaves, was allowed to find his own lodgings, secure his own meals, and receive the wages for his labor. During the antebellum era, the urban slave system provided an essential labor pool for city businesses and was highly lucrative, but under conditions that made white Richmonders nervous. Critics of the system believed the hiring-out process made urban slavery unstable and encouraged slave workers to be more rebellious and defiant. Hatcher did not hang.
This show will look at the tragic and senseless death of Eric Garner. We will seek answers on why police used an outlawed choke hold on a man for no known reason. Blacks both male and female are afraid to encounter police day or night for fear of this type outcome. Are we under a police state, is this why this type arrest is occuring so often with police across the country.
Rick continues his discussion with Wall Street insider “V”. Today’s talk centers on a potential blueprint that is being followed to bring about the demise the U.S. and its global dominance. Rick postulates that the current border crisis could be used as the “perfect cover” for collapsing the system and locking down the borders while diverting the blame onto illegals and terrorists.
"Making All Things New"
York Moore is the national evangelist for Intervarsity USA. As a modern-day abolitionist, he has conducted “justice invitationals” throughout the United States in conjunction with many of the world’s most effective anti-slavery non-governmental organizations. He is joining us today to talk about the gospel of the kingdom, eschatology, and the mandate to confront social injustice.
After reigning as king for two years, King Saul takes an action which demonstrates a lack of reverence for God and blatant disobedient of God's commands. God lets him know that he could have been the first of the kings to reign forever but instead he would lose his throne. Not to be flippant, but that's gotta hurt.
I actually believe that many of us do miss out on amazing opportunities without perhaps even realizing what we've given up but choosing to compromise or by ignoring the still, small voice of God.
The subject at the Coronation of King Saul was mostly that the nation had rejected God as their King.
1 Samuel 12:20-25New King James Version (NKJV)
20 Then Samuel said to the people, “Do not fear. You have done all this wickedness; yet do not turn aside from following the Lord, but serve the Lord with all your heart. 21 And do not turn aside; for then you would go after empty things which cannot profit or deliver, for they are nothing. 22 For the Lord will not forsake His people, for His great name’s sake, because it has pleased the Lord to make you His people. 23 Moreover, as for me, far be it from me that I should sin against the Lord in ceasing to pray for you; but I will teach you the good and the right way. 24 Only fear the Lord, and serve Him in truth with all your heart; for consider what great things He has done for you. 25 But if you still do wickedly, you shall be swept away, both you and your king.”
