HEROES
PITTSBURGH, PA

“The Carnegie Hero Fund honors student Jake Ryker for tackling Kip Kinkel after his Thurston killing rampage.”
The Associated Press

A BRAVE YOUNG MAN JOINED BY 4 OTHERS
A BRAVE MOVE
A MOVE WHICH TOOK MUCH COURAGE
AND LIVES WERE SAVED
THANK YOU, YOUNG JAKE & FRIENDS
FOR THAT IS WHAT THIS WORLD NEEDS
IS RIGHTEOUS COURAGE IN THE FACE OF DEATH

BUT ALLOW ME TO ALSO SPEAK OF ANOTHER KIND
OF COURAGE THIS DAY
A YOUNG MAN POSSESSED BY THE ATTRACTION OF POWER
A YOUNG MAN - A LONER WITH NO WAY OUT, BUT TO KILL
HE TRIED TO GET HELP
HE CRIED OUT FOR HELP
BUT HIS CRY WAS NOT LOUD ENOUGH
AND THE RESULT WAS DEATH - DEATH FOR MANY
EVEN THOSE WHOM HE LOVED
IS THIS YOUNG MAN EVIL?
APPARENTLY SO
IS HE ABLE TO CHANGE AND START OVER?
OF COURSE, SOCIETY WILL WANT TO KEEP HIM SAFELY PUT AWAY
FOR THEY CAN NEVER BE PERFECTLY SURE
OF ANY PERMANENT CHANGE
BUT IS HIS YOUNG LIFE OVER ALREADY?
I SAY NO
I SPEAK TODAY OF A NEW KIND OF COURAGE
A COURAGE WHICH I WILL GIVE THIS YOUNG MAN
TO BEAT THE ODDS AND RESURFACE
NOT TO HARM OR KILL OR DESTROY
BUT TO HEAL AND BUILD UP AND ENCOURAGE
AND SET FREE
PEOPLE ARE MY BUSINESS AND I KNOW WHAT MAKES THEM
CHOOSE EVIL
AND I KNOW HOW TO ENTER THEIR HEART
I WILL DO MY WORK AND THE WORLD WILL STAND AMAZED
AT THE RESULT
YOUNG KIP WILL SHOW FORTH COURAGE ONE DAY
A COURAGE TO CHANGE THE IMAGE WHICH IS SO INGRAINED
IN EVERYONE'S HEARTS AND MINDS
A HERO HE WILL BE TO MANY
HE WILL BE A HERO TO YOUNG PEOPLE AND OLD, ALIKE
WHO ARE CAUGHT IN THE SAME DEPRESSION WHICH BROUGHT
ON HIS RAMPAGE
HE WILL BE A HERO TO THE PARENTS OF THESE YOUNG PEOPLE
HE WILL BE A HERO IN MY EYES, TOO
NEVER GIVE UP ON ANYONE FOR I HAVE PLANS

LOOK AT IT THIS WAY
AND SEE IF YOU CAN SEE PEOPLE AS I DO
IF I HELD A PEN BEFORE YOU, COULD YOU TELL ME IF THAT PEN
WAS EVIL OR GOOD?
NO, FOR IT, IN ITSELF, HAS NO CHOICE
IT ALL DEPENDS ON WHO HOLDS THE PEN 
WHO CONTROLS THE PEN
IF I HELD BEFORE YOU A YOUNG BOY, COULD YOU TELL ME
IF HE WAS EVIL OR GOOD?
SURE, YOU COULD JUDGE HIM BY HIS ACTIONS
AND SURELY HE MUST HAVE A CHOICE
BUT DO YOUNG CHILDREN HAVE CHOICES AS THEY ARE FED VIOLENCE
AND BOOKS FILLED WITH SORCERY?
ARE THEY ABLE TO MAKE WISE DECISIONS AT THEIR AGE?
THEY ARE MORE LIKE THE PEN THAN MOST WOULD WANT TO BELIEVE
SATAN TAKES HOLD OF THESE YOUNG PEOPLE BECAUSE
OF THE OPENINGS IN THEIR SOUL
THROUGH THE THINGS WHICH THEY SEE AND HEAR
AND HE BEGINS TO CONTROL THEM
THAT IS WHERE THE VOICES COME FROM
THEY ARE NOT IMAGINARY AND NEVER DO THEY TRULY STOP
AS LONG AS THEY HAVE A STRONGHOLD
BUT TAKE A YOUNG PERSON AND ALLOW THEM
TO MEET THE ALMIGHTY GOD
IN A VERY PERSONAL WAY
ALLOW THIS YOUNG PERSON TO ENCOUNTER THE TRUE SAVIOR
AND HAVE ALL THE DOORS BLOCKED TO THE EVIL ONE
AND YOU WILL ONE DAY SEE AND HEAR AND READ OF A HERO
MY HERO

TWO KINDS OF HERO - BOTH OF COURAGE
BOTH DEMONSTRATING WHAT IS RIGHT IN THIS WORLD
BE OPEN TO WHAT I CAN DO THROUGH ANYONE'S LIFE
ALL HAVE VALUE TO ME
ALL CAN MAKE THE RIGHT CHOICE

TUPAC - A REBEL YELL
NEWSMAKERS 2000


“As hip-hop redefines popular music, a man who died three years ago continues to inspire successors . . . Rebel-Yell: Shakur lives on in his rhymes. Expect the cult to continue in 2000; if the world is becoming a place
where hip-hop rules, then Tupac is its new patron saint.”
Newsweek magazine

A YOUNG MAN DIES, BUT HIS SONGS LIVE ON
WAS IT JUST THE SONGS OR WAS IT THE MAN, HIMSELF?
TUPAC AMARU SHAKUR HAD PASSION
AND NOW THAT HE IS GONE, HE IS GREATLY MISSED FOR
NO ONE HAS TAKEN HIS PLACE
EVERY YOUNG PERSON
EVERY PERSON HAS THE SAME OPPORTUNITY
TO MAKE AN IMPACT ON THIS WORLD
I AM LOOKING FOR PEOPLE
WHO ARE NOT AFRAID TO BE DIFFERENT
WHO ARE NOT AFRAID TO LIVE THEIR LIVES WITH PASSION
WHO ARE NOT AFRAID TO SHOW THE WORLD "LIFE"
A YOUNG MAN DIED VERY YOUNG, BUT HIS WORK,
HIS VERY PASSION LIVES ON
COME TO ME AND I WILL GIVE YOU PASSION
I WILL GIVE YOU LIFE SO ABUNDANT SO RADICAL
THAT PEOPLE WILL STOP YOU IN THE STREET AND WANT TO KNOW
"WHAT'S SHAKING YOU"
BE A REBEL-YELL
FIND ME, JESUS THE CHRIST,
AND I WILL SURELY
GIVE YOU SOMETHING TO YELL ABOUT

PASTORS
SYMBOLS OF THE CHURCH


“The shepherds are senseless and do not inquire of the Lord;
so they do not prosper and all their flock is scattered.”
The Bible [NIV] Jeremiah 10:21

A VERY OLD, BUT RELIABLE SOURCE IS QUOTED THIS DAY
TO WARN OF THE FATE OF THE PASTORS OF THE LAND
FOR YOU SEE, FOR TOO LONG HAVE THE PASTORS PROSPERED
UNDER THE GUISE OF DOING "THE LORD'S WORK"
IF THEY WERE DOING MY WORK THEN YOU WOULD ALL KNOW
OF MY LOVE BY NOW

BUT UNTO THEMSELVES DO THEY SEEK TO PROSPER
AND PROMOTE THEIR OWN NAMES AND MINISTRIES
I WILL STRIKE THE SHEPHERDS THIS NIGHT
ACCORDING TO THEIR TRUE WORK
SO THAT THE WORLD MAY SEE WHO I TRULY HONOR
AND WHO ARE BUT FOOLS
CHRISTIANITY IS SUCH A MOCKERY IN THESE TIMES
FOR MOSTLY WHAT IS SEEN ARE SIMPLY HYPOCRITES
I WILL EXPOSE THE HYPOCRITES IN THIS DAY AND TIME
SO THAT YOU WILL BE ABLE TO ACCURATELY JUDGE THE TRUTH
THE SHEPHERDS WILL BEGIN TO REFLECT IN THEIR MORTAL BODIES
THE TRUE HEALTH OF THEIR CONGREGATION IN MY EYES
THEY WILL BECOME SYMBOLS REPRESENTING THEIR CHURCH
AS A WHOLE
I TELL YOU THE TRUTH
MOST CHURCHES AND PASTORS WILL NOT SURVIVE
THIS MOMENT OF TRUTH

WORLD, DO NOT JUDGE ME
BY WHAT IS CALLED "CHRISTIAN"
WAIT FOR THE NEW BREED TO COME FORTH
THE BREED OF POWER AND LIFE AND LOVE AND
COURAGE AND STRENGTH
AND THEN YOU WILL KNOW
THAT THESE NEW PEOPLE ARE FILLED TO OVERFLOWING
WITH THE INCARNATE GOD
ISN'T THAT WHAT THE RESURRECTION WAS SUPPOSE TO BE ABOUT?
IT WAS NOT SIMPLY A RELIGIOUS RITUAL
OR A SACRAMENT
IT WAS TRUE LIFE
MY LIFE INFUSED INTO THE PEOPLE
WAIT AND SEE
YOU WILL SURELY BE SURPRISED
I SAY, "ADIEU" TO THE PASTORS
FOR YOU HAVE PRESENTED ME AS WEAK
AND JUDGMENTAL, ABSENT AND UNCARING
IF YOU REPENT
I WILL ALLOW YOU TO SERVE THE LOWEST OF THE KINGDOM
I WILL GIVE YOU ANOTHER CHANCE IF YOU CAN LIVE
WITHOUT
YOUR PRIDE

WORLD, WATCH OUT
I'M GOING TO DO SOME MAJOR SHAKING
AND ONLY THOSE WHO TRULY KNOW ME WILL SURVIVE
THE CLEANSING OF MY HOUSE

TERRORISTS - WHO IS SAFE?
WASHINGTON D.C.


"U.S. Sounds Terrorist Alert"
“Federal officials say there is the possibility of attacks on Americans
overseas and maybe at home as well.”
The Associated Press

WHO WILL PROTECT YOU, HOME OF THE FREE AND THE BRAVE?
WHO IS ON YOUR SIDE?
WHO IS YOUR ADVOCATE?
YOU HAVE HELPED MANY COUNTRIES SINCE YOUR BIRTH AS A NATION
BUT WHO WILL COME TO YOUR AID NOW
WHEN THE TERRORISTS CHOOSE THEIR TARGET?

WHO HAVE YOU FORGOTTEN?
AND TO WHOM WILL THE ARM OF THE LORD BE REVEALED AGAINST?
WILL THE STRENGTH OF MY MIGHT TURN AGAINST YOUR ENEMIES
OR WILL MY HAND BE HELD BACK BECAUSE
YOU HAVE FAILED TO HONOR ME?
YOU WERE FOUNDED IN RIGHTEOUSNESS AND FREEDOM
BUT YOU HAVE CHOSEN A DIFFERENT PATH
AND THUS, YOU MUST NOW CONSIDER THE CONSEQUENCES
FOR YOUR REFUSAL TO ACKNOWLEDGE ME
I AM LORD OF ALL
AND I WILL PROTECT MY OWN
BUT WHO DO YOU BELONG TO NOW?
I SEE YOU PLAINLY AS A HARLOT NATION
JUST AS ISRAEL WAS WHEN THEY TURNED FROM ME
WHAT IS IN YOUR COUNTRY THAT STILL TRULY HONORS ME?
THERE IS NOT ENOUGH
PRAY TO YOUR GODS OF MONEY, MATERIAL THINGS, JOBS, PLEASURES,
RELIGIONS AND SEE WHICH ONE,
IF ANY, WILL ALLEVIATE YOUR FEARS
FEAR COMES FROM NOT ABIDING IN THE HAND AND HEART
OF THE ALMIGHTY GOD
YOU ARE NOT SAFE WHEN YOU ARE SEPARATED FROM ME
YOU ARE AT THE MERCY OF THIS WORLD'S EVIL
WILL YOU TURN BACK TO ME?
WE WILL SEE . . .

RARE MOON RISING
EARTH

"Rare Moon Rising"
The Oregonian

AND SO MANY OF YOU
WILL BE LOOKING AT A VERY BRIGHT MOON THIS NIGHT
BRIGHTER THAN IT HAS BEEN IN MANY YEARS
WHAT IS THE SIGNIFICANCE OF THIS?
IS IT JUST A FLUKE OF NATURE?
A RESULT OF YOUR
?BIG BANG THEORY?
OR WAS IT ALL PLANNED PERFECTLY BY SOMEONE
WHO HAS A STORY TO TELL?

I HAVE A STORY TO TELL OF A BRIGHT MOON RISING
THIS MOON ARISES ON THE EVE OF THE EMERGENCE
OF A NEW MOVEMENT
THE MOON'S BRIGHTNESS IS SIMPLY THE REFLECTION
OF THE SUN'S GLOW
MY CHURCH WILL BE THE REFLECTION OF ME
IN THESE END TIMES
YOU HAVE NEVER SEEN THE MOON THIS BRIGHT
AND THE CHURCH THAT WILL ARISE IN THIS DAY AND TIME
YOU WOULD HAVE NEVER SEEN ITS BRIGHTNESS BEFORE EITHER
ALL IS SYMBOLIC IN MY WORLD
I BRING FORTH SIGNS IN THE HEAVENS AND EVEN ON EARTH
THIS IS THE TIME TO RESTORE
MY HONOR AND MY DOMINANCE
GO AHEAD WITH YOUR SCIENTIFIC THEORIES AND ALL
THE THOUGHTS AND PLANS THAT MAKE YOU FEEL AS THOUGH
YOU ARE IN CONTROL OF THIS WORLD
BUT THE FACT IS:
I AM IN CONTROL
AND I WILL SHOW YOU HOW MUCH OVER THE NEXT “10” YEARS
THIS IS THE TIME OF MY SOVEREIGN DISPLAY
I WILL NOT FOLLOW YOUR RULES EITHER
FOR I WANT YOU TO DO MORE THAN JUST THINK
YOU HAVE THOUGHT FOR THOUSANDS OF YEARS
AND YET, MANKIND IS WORSE NOW
THAN MANY PREVIOUS GENERATIONS
IT'S NOT IN THE THINKING THAT MAN IS CHANGED
IT'S IN THE HEART AND THE SOUL
AND SO I WILL DISPLAY MY POWER, MY SIGNS, MY DOMINANCE
AND I WILL EXPLAIN IT ALL
BUT YOU WON'T LIKE MOST OF IT FOR IT WILL GO AGAINST
YOUR OWN CONTROL MECHANISMS THAT YOU HAVE CREATED
BUT STILL
THIS IS MY WORLD
AND I HAVE A SHOW TO PUT ON AND A STORY TO TELL

OUT WITH THE "OLD BREED"
NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE


"Baptist Leader Blasts Clinton"
“The President of the Southern Baptist Convention said President Clinton
‘has very few convictions’ and accused his administration of distorting
Christian evangelism as religious hatred . . . ”
USA TODAY

EVANGELISM, AS IT IS THIS DAY
IS TRULY ON ITS WAY OUT AS IT HAS BEEN
FOR MANY, MANY YEARS
THERE ARE MEN OF FAITH THAT HAVE GIVEN EVANGELISTS
A GOOD NAME
BUT THERE ARE MANY MORE WHO BRING FORTH HATRED AND JUDGMENT
TO TRY AND CONVINCE THE PEOPLE THAT CHRISTIANITY
IS THE ONLY WAY
DO YOU SEE A DISCREPANCY HERE, PEOPLE?
DO YOU SEE ANY DIFFERENCE BETWEEN
A MODERN DAY EVANGELIST AND A SALESMAN?
THERE IS LITTLE
I WAS NOT BORN TO DIE AND BE RAISED AGAIN
SO THAT MY NAME COULD BE SOLD AND THE MONEY
GO TO PAD THE POCKETS OF THE RELIGIOUS

OUT
WITH THE OLD EVANGELISTS
MANY ARE CONSIDERED AS HATERS OF THOSE NOT CHRISTIAN
AREN'T YOU TIRED, WORLD, OF BEING INSULTED
WITH WORDS THROWN AT YOU?
IT'S ON THE TV, ON STREET CORNERS, AT THE WORK PLACE
EVERYWHERE YOU GO
THE EVANGELISTS OF OLD WILL SOON BE A LOST BREED
EVEN THOSE CONSIDERED TO BE MISSIONARIES WILL NO LONGER HOLD THAT TITLE
WHAT WE WILL HAVE IN THE FUTURE ARE TRUE PEOPLE OF GOD
BUT THEY WILL NOT HATE THE NON-CHRISTIAN
THEY WILL NOT HARASS YOU
THEY WILL SIMPLY BE AVAILABLE
REFRESHING, DON'T YOU THINK?
IT WAS NEVER MEANT TO BE AS IT IS NOW
SEMINARIES RAISED CLONES OF DO-GOODERS AND PREACHERS
WITH FUNNY VOICES
TRYING TO CONVINCE THE PEOPLE THAT THEY NEEDED ME
BUT WHERE WAS THE "LIFE" IN THAT?
HOW IS THAT ANY DIFFERENT THAN ANY OTHER RELIGION
OR PYRAMID COMPANY?
IT WAS SIMPLY A BUSINESS RUN BY MAN
TO COLLECT MONEY


I WILL SET THE RECORDS STRAIGHT THIS DAY
AND I WILL RAISE UP MEN AND WOMEN AND EVEN CHILDREN
OF LOVE AND COURAGE AND LIFE AND POWER
PERHAPS, YOU WOULD BE INTERESTED IN THEIR MESSAGE
AND IN THEIR GOD
PERHAPS
DON'T BE SO HARD ON THE PRESIDENT
HE WAS RAISED RELIGIOUS AND KNOWS NOT THE POWER
OF THE LIVING GOD
HE ONLY KNOWS WHAT HE HAS SEEN AND EXPERIENCED
WHOSE FAULT IS THAT?

CHRISTMAS  DAY

NO ROOM AT THE INN
CHRISTIAN LIFE CENTER
ALOHA, OREGON

* Now Called *

LIFE CHURCH
of Greater Portland


"While they were there, the time came for the baby (Jesus) to be born,
and she (Mary) gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him
in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room
for them in the inn.”
Bible [NIV] Luke 2:7

"I am writing this letter to inform you that you and your family are not
to come upon church property or in our church facilities.”
Pastor Rienas of Christian Life Center
to a family in the church


AND SO, THINGS HAVE NOT TRULY CHANGED IN 2000 YEARS
THERE IS STILL NOT ROOM
THERE IS STILL NO TRUE PLACE FOR TRUTH TO BE BORN
I SENT A PROPHET AND HER FAMILY TO A LOCAL CHURCH
BUT CAST OUT THEY WERE
TRUTH LOOKS FOR A PLACE TO CALL "HOME"
BUT THERE IS NONE WITHIN THE BUILDINGS OF
MODERN DAY CHRISTIANITY
THE POLICE ARE CALLED WHEN THIS FAMILY ARRIVE
TO BAR THE DOORS AND ARREST
THE POLICE ARE CALLED IN A NATION WHERE THERE
IS FREEDOM OF RELIGION
THE POLICE ARE CALLED TO PROTECT THE CHURCH FROM TRUTH
WHEN WILL THINGS CHANGE?
WHEN WILL THE TRUTH BE WELCOME?
WHEN, INDEED?

I FIGHT A FIGHT THAT I HAVE FOUGHT FOR GENERATIONS
TO BUILD WITHIN PEOPLE LOVE AND RIGHTEOUSNESS,
TRUTH, HONOR AND JUSTICE
BUT WHEN A PERSON POSSESSES THESE VIRTUES
THEY ARE NO LONGER WELCOME IN ESTABLISHMENTS
THAT CALL THEMSELVES
"CHRISTIAN"

BUT I SAY TO YOU, DEAR FAMILY,
THERE IS ROOM IN THE "MANGER" FOR MANY
THERE IS ROOM IN THE "STABLE" AMONGST THE HUMBLE AND POOR
THERE IS ROOM WHERE THE RELIGIOUS WILL NOT GO
THERE IS ROOM WHERE LOVE IS
THERE IS ROOM IN MY HEART FOR YOU, DEAR PEOPLE
SENT OUT YOU WERE
TREATED AS CRIMINALS
I SENT YOU ONCE AGAIN TO HOLD A SIGN IN FRONT OF THE CHURCH
STANDING WELL OFF CHURCH PROPERTY
THE SIGN READ,
"DO YOU HAVE ROOM IN YOUR HEART FOR ME?"
BUT ONCE MORE THEY CALLED THE POLICE
CLAIMING THAT YOU WERE ATTACKING THE CHURCH
IS THIS CHRISTIANITY?
IS THIS LOVE?
IS THIS OF ME?
NO, I WILL HAVE NO PART IN A PLACE WHICH SENDS
MY LOVED ONES AWAY

NO PART
NO WAY
NO ROOM IN MY HEART FOR SUCH AS THESE
AND THEIR KIND


***
AND SO, YOUNG PROPHET, WEEK TWO IS FINISHED
AND WITHIN THE VISION WHICH I HAVE GIVEN YOU THIS DAY
YOU SEE THAT MANY ARE ANGRY AT THE WORDS
YOU STAND AND YOU WRITE EXACTLY WHAT I SAY
BUT THE FACES OF THE PEOPLE TURN IN ANGER
TO REBUKE YOU AND NULLIFY THE WORDS
I GIVE YOU A CHARGE AGAIN THIS DAY WHICH I GAVE YOU 5 YEARS AGO
JEREMIAH 1
I WILL BE WITH YOU
AND WHAT IS ANGER, BUT AN EMOTION SHOWN WHEN PEOPLE
DON'T GET THEIR WAY?
I AM UPROOTING AND PULLING DOWN STRONGHOLDS WITH THESE WORDS
SHOULD THE PEOPLE RESPOND IN DELIGHT?
NOT LIKELY
PEOPLE DON'T LIKE TO CHANGE UNLESS THEY ARE FORCED TO
I AM SIMPLY REVEALING THE FOUNDATION OF THE WORLD
IN WHICH THEY HAVE CREATED
AND IF IT IS EVIL AND BASED ON UNTRUTHS
IT MUST BE UPROOTED TO SURVIVE IN THESE LAST DAYS
KEEP WRITING, YOUNG ONE
I AM WITH YOU AND WILL PROTECT YOU
THIS IS A WORK OF LOVE EVEN THOUGH IT PRODUCES ANGER
AND RESENTMENT
I WORK A WORK TO BRING OUT THE BEST IN PEOPLE
THEY CAN READ AND CHOOSE TO FOLLOW ME
BUT I WILL NOT CHANGE THE RULES FOR ANYONE
OR THEY CAN CONTINUE TO GO THEIR OWN WAY
EITHER WAY
I WILL SPEAK TRUTH FOR ALL TO KNOW
THAT MY TRUTHS ARE ABSOLUTE
IN THIS WORLD WHERE EVERYTHING CHANGES DAILY

SHALOM, CHILD
I AM WITH YOU
AS ALWAYS, I AM YOUR PRESENT THIS CHRISTMAS DAY
I AM HERE FOR YOU, BABE!
