A Good Man Is Not Hard To Find, If You Truly Desire One (2/2)

Shared by One Gentleman. See Part 1.

After some reflection on the initial opinion piece, I hope the message was not misconstrued. I will admit, dirt bags can ruin the dating process for all men. Their mistakes somehow become our mistakes. Soon, you begin having tunnel vision, where you are unable to discern good men from the bad ones. However, I still believe that a good man is not hard to find, well, if a good man is what you truly desire.

Church Pastor Behind Bars, Accused Of Abusing Boy

Originally posted on CBS Dallas / Fort Worth:

CRANDALL (CBSDFW.COM) - A former associate pastor of a church in Crandall, southeast of Dallas, is behind bars accused of indecency with a child.

According to the arrest warrant affidavit in the case, Steven Forest Gray, 67, assaulted the child at his home in the Pecan Lake Mobile Home Park. But, he befriended his then 11-year-old victim at the Lord’s House of Prayer Church.

“It’s devastating,” says Pastor Doug Meshell. “In situations like this, there are no true winners.” Pastor Meshell took over the church in June. He says Gray left the congregation several years ago — and we now know why.

According to the arrest warrant, the victim, now 16, made an initial outcry several years ago. That outcry led to a meeting with the church’s pastor at the time, Frank Reyna, Gray and the victim’s mother. The child at the time insisted that the contact was limited to…

Lake Dallas Teen Scores Scholarship From Dating Website

DALLAS (CBSDFW.COM) - A Lake Dallas teenager and his family score a big come-from-behind victory.

CBS 11 introduced you to Austin Sumlin two weeks ago, on the last day of voting for a college scholarship competition from online dating website Match.com.

Thanks to hard work from his family and CBS 11 viewers, he pulled off a last-minute victory.

He now has a $50,000 scholarship in his future, but Austin’s entry to the contest almost didn’t happen.

“Mom heard about it first of all, and said you should do this,” explained Austin.

The competition was open to the children of parents who’d met on Match.com. The contestants were required to make a video telling their family’s story.

Austin’s initial reaction was, “I don’t know how to make a video. I don’t really want to.”

But he did it, at the last minute, as many teenagers do.

Atlas V Rocket Launches, Taking Satellite Aloft

Originally posted on CBS Miami:

CAPE CANAVERAL (CBSMiami/AP) — The Atlas V rocket blasted off from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station Tuesday evening taking with it a communication satellite.

It lifted off at 8:10 p.m. Tuesday through a dark and cloudy sky after several weather-related delays. Liftoff came near the end of a nearly 2 and ½ hour window.

United Launch Alliance, which is behind the Atlas V, oversaw the mission launching the so-called CLIO satellite built by Lockheed-Martin. Officials released no information about the satellite’s mission nor for which government agency it was sent into space.

Space officials have said the satellite was built using commercial technology found in hundreds of other private and government satellites currently in orbit.

God Wants You Well

A head-on collision, the jaws of life, a helicopter flight to the hospital, and thirty-one days in the ICU. The injuries were so extensive that Ken should have died. But his wife, Virginia, believed God, and a healing journey began.

Had Carol sunk into an earthly pit so deep and dark that even Jesus’ arms could not rescue her? At 290 pounds with a history of drugs, multiple abortions, and abuse, if Jesus couldn’t—or wouldn’t—save her, she knew she would die.

After years of severe headaches, twelve-year-old Scott was healed and then diagnosed with a rare disease. He had Barrett’s esophagus, a life-threatening condition unheard of in children. The story of a little girl’s miracle opened the door to his healing.

Merci’s multiple sclerosis progressively worsened. Unable to work, drive, or even walk, she had come to the end. “What am I doing wrong, Lord? Why am I not healed?” The answer would change her life.

The ultrasound showed fluid on the brain, flattened facial features, calcium deposits in the heart, and more—all symptoms of Down’s syndrome. The doctor recommended abortion, but the parents believed God!

These five stories have been documented and recorded on a new DVD called Healing Journeys, Volume 2. They are all stories of the power of God’s Word working in the lives of people who gained a revelation of what God had already done for them through Jesus. Every one of them is a Healing Journey that will touch your life.

Jesus used miracles like these as a dinner bell. He used them to prove He could forgive sin (Mark 2:10-12). God used them to authenticate Jesus and His message (Heb. 2:3-4). Jesus told His followers that they would do the same works He had done (John 14:12). He said that the preaching of His Word would be confirmed by signs and wonders (Mark 16:20).

So why aren’t we seeing greater manifestations of His healing? Aren’t people still suffering from sickness? Doesn’t Jesus love people today just as much as He did when He walked the earth? Don’t believers still need to see demonstrations of His power?

YES! Not only do we need the healing power of God today, but God wants to release that power. Hallelujah! However, healing isn’t up to God alone. It isn’t God who decides who gets healed and who doesn’t. That’s a radical statement, but it’s true. And herein lies some of the greatest obstacles to receiving God’s healing power.

One of the worst doctrines in thebody of Christ is the belief that God controls everything that happens. Fundamentalists/Evangelical Christians believe that God either controls or allows everything, and that Satan has to get His permission before he can do anything.

That’s a convenient theology because it absolves the individual of any personal responsibility. That’s also the reason for its popularity. I know this may shock some people, but it’s true: That belief will kill you. God’s will doesn’t automatically come to pass. We have to believe and cooperate with God to receive what He has provided for us, including our own salvation.

Second Peter 3:9 says it isn’t God’s will for anyone to perish:

“The Lord is not slack concerning his promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.”

That’s as plain as the Scripture can make it. It is not God’s WILL for anyone to perish, but they do. In fact, Jesus said more people would enter through the broad gate unto destruction than enter through the narrow gate unto life (Matt. 7:13-14). God doesn’t force salvation on people.

People don’t have to ask Jesus to save them; they just need to believe the nearly-too-good-to-be-true news that their sins are already forgiven and receive their salvation (Acts 16:31). The same thing is true of healing: God has already healed everyone, just as He has already paid for the forgiveness of everyone’s sins.

Healing is already an accomplished work. First Peter 2:24 says,

“Who his own self bare our sins in his own body on the tree, that we, being dead to sins, should live unto righteousness: by whose stripes ye were healed.”

Jesus isn’t healing people today—healing was given 2,000 years ago in Jerusalem when He took those stripes on His back. He hasn’t, and won’t, receive any more stripes. People today only receive through faith what has already been accomplished by Jesus thousands of years ago.

The Scriptures don’t tell us to pray for the sick, in the sense that we are powerless to minister healing to them. It’s just the opposite: Jesus told US to HEAL the sick (Matt. 10:1, 8; Luke 9:1, and 10:9). There’s a big difference between asking the Lord to heal people and healing them.

Most Christians today are appalled at what I’ve just said. They think, Who do you think you are? Well, without Jesus, I am nothing (John 15:5), but the good news is that I’m not without Jesus! He will never leave me nor forsake me (Heb. 13:5). Hallelujah! Therefore, I can say with the Apostle Peter, “Such as I have give I thee” (Acts 3:6).

This is what Peter said when he ministered to the lame man in Acts 3. Peter didn’t pray for this man. He didn’t say, “O God, we can do nothing without You. Please heal this man if it is Your will.” It’s always God’s will to heal (3 John 2). We don’t ask and then wait and see. That’s not believing His Word. Instead of beggars, we need to become believers who, knowing God’s will, use our authority to heal.

Talking and acting like that today will get us kicked out of most churches. After all, who do we think we are? That’s not the way many Christians believe it’s done. And that’s one of the main reasons we don’t see more of the healing power manifest that Jesus provided.

I have prayed for thousands of people in my meetings across the country, and I have yet to see every person healed. It might be a problem in the heart of the one receiving prayer, or it might be something I don’t understand in regards to that particular person. But one thing I know for sure—it’s not God.

Healing is such an important issue that I’m beginning a six-week series on it on television in April. You won’t want to miss it. I have also put together a special package to help you. I call it A Better Health-Care Package-By Andrew Wommack

Kobia claims group assaulted him over remarks about Raila Odinga

Controversial businessman Paul Kobia alias Paul Ilunga Ngoei has claimed a group of youths assaulted him at a Nairobi hotel over a remark he made in YouTube video regarding former Prime Minister Raila Odinga. Kobia who had blood stains on his left ear, swollen face and torn shirt said he had driven into a popular joint in Hurlingham area for lunch when he was confronted by a group of youth who demanded to know why he had threatened Raila. “We exchanged bitter words before some of them hit me severally and tore my shirt as they tried drag me into a waiting car. I feel a lot of pain in me now,” said Kobia. He said he managed to sneak out of the joint after one of the youths sympathised with him and asked his colleagues to let him go. However, a statement from ODM’s Communications Secretary Philip Etale said Kobia was armed and had planned to attack Raila at the restaurant.

“He thought the bodyguards didn’t know him, one stopped him as he tried to enter, asked him where he was going yet he was on video threatening to kill Raila. He started confronting the officer, others joined and he was resisted.” Etale said. Kobia was trembling when he arrived at The Standard Newsroom to narrate his ordeal. He said he was yet to report to police on the alleged attack. He also said he would go to hospital for a check up before he could report. In the said YouTube clip that has gone viral, Kobia is captured issuing threats to Raila over his political stand as he and other celebrities including musician Jaguar and Nairobi Senator Mike Sonko enjoyed drinks. “If you want peace, put $50 million dollars on the table for us to forgive you,” Kobia is caught saying partly in the clip. He said the clip was captured before the Saba Saba rally in which the Cord leadership addressed in Nairobi. Kilimani OCPD Peter Katam said he was yet to receive a report regarding the incident. “We are yet to get the complaint of the said assault,” said Katam. the aforesaid video:


It is not clear why he chose to rush to the media first before seeking police and medical help. Kobia, the man named in a UN report over Congo Gold smuggling claims, last month shot dead a robbery suspect along Parklands’ Limuru Road in a botched robbery. Police said then one of the suspects had allegedly snatched his phone, a Samsung Galaxy Note 3 valued at Sh74,000 as he drove in a traffic jam. The body of the 31-year-old man identified as Wanjohi Mugwanja was later picked up and taken to the mortuary. An inquest into the incident is ongoing. Kobia told police he pursued them and shot one of the suspects dead but he did not recover the mobile phone.
