Then all his bones begin to come out of joint and he had no form nor comeliness and he was poured out like water, he died, went to hell and God the Father raised Jesus from the dead on the third day. As as I stated before my motives for them were not the best.A  I used them to scare my sister and friends sometimes.
Harry Ironside (1876-1951)A A "Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the Gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; by which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. This year’s theme: “Cotton Sacks and Freedom Quilt Narratives” substantiates the viability of the sweat equity investment made through labor and cultural contributions by Cotton Pickers and other Plantation Workers. Many were standing around the cross looking up at Jesus as he was crucified and were astonishedas they begin to see Jesus lose his form and comeliness, right before their eyes as Jesus bones were coming out of joint, because of all our sins being laid upon him, others looked up at Jesus and said an evil disease cleaveth fast unto him: as they were watching him become deformed right in front of them, this was all our sicknesses being laid upon the body of Jesus. The following evening, Friday November 13, the “Cotton Pickers Ball” shall be held at 7:00pm, in da’ House of Khafre, located at 300 Main Street, Indianola.
All are encouraged to attend both events in costume attire worn in the cotton fields, such as “overalls and straw hats, etc.”The 1st Annual Historical Narrative Competition enhances this year’s Symposium. The Greek word for a€?serpenta€? is the word ophis, which is the normal Greek word that refers toA a snake.A It is a fact that Jesus told us that we need to be a€?wise as serpentsa€?!
Mississippi Delta high school seniors and MVSU students will compete for a trophy and gift card provided by Khafre, Inc and Lost Pizza, Company. The Greek literally means weA need to be as prudent, discerning, intelligent, thoughtful, and careful as snakes! All projects must be delivered to the MVSU Social Sciences office “T” by 5:00pm November 5th, (or call organizers to arrange for pick up). 1-5,6 When I call to rememberance the unfeigned faith that is in thee, which dwelt first in thy grandmother Lois, and in thy mother Eunice; and I am persuaded that in thee also. Wherefore I put you in rememberance that thou stir up (re-kindle) the gift of God, which is in thee by the putting on of my hands.
The Sermon on the Mount demands a righteousness which no unregenerate man has been able to produce.
People say, that is my problem I don't have any faith, well then you need to turn your life over to the Lord and he will put a measure of faith in your heart, that is what is written here in Romans 12:1-3, but you say I have turned my life over to the Lord, then you have the faith of God within you, you just need to stir it up. The vilest aggressor can walk right past, butA the serpent is not noticed because it has blended so well into the landscape.
You need to settle it in your heart once and for all that you have the faith of God within you.
Professor, Public Policy, MVSU; Dr Alpha Diarra, National Cotton Spokesman of Mali, West Africa. In fact, the law was given by God to show men their need of the Gospel.A "The law," says the Apostle Paul, speaking as a Jewish convert, "was our schoolmaster to bring us to Christ. Centre: Charlie Bennett, Les Griffin (trainer), Harry Oxtoby (trainer), Greg Anderson (treasurer), Jack Armstrong (secretary), Bruce Cambridge (president), Ray Hunt (manager), Graham Seymour. If you haven't turned your life over to the Lord, then you will never walk by faith, you see, you don't use God, he uses you.
God isn't our servant we are his servants and walking by faith and doing his will go hand in hand.
These things are proper in their place, but they do not constitute the Gospel; for the Gospel is not good advice to be obeyed, it is good news to be believed. Faith worketh by love, if your faith isn't working you are not obeying God, you are not believing the gospel and doing God's will, you may be trying to, but only God can lead a person to repent and believe the gospel, just don't turn away from the Lord because he is faithful and he will surely lead you to repentance if you humble yourself and continue to hold fast to the gospel. Let me tell you this, you can believe some, you may be a weak believer, but use the faith you have and you will get stronger in faith.A The next question a person would have is, how do you stir up the gift of God (faith) in you? You may do all these things, and yet never believe the Gospel and consequently never be saved at all.A THERE ARE SEVEN DESIGNATIONS OF THE GOSPEL in the New Testament, but over and above all these, let me draw your attention to the fact that when this blessed message is mentioned, it is invariably accompanied by the definite article.
You see faith is a substance, it also is a spirit and it is confident, but believing is an act of your will.
Local storyteller Helen Sims will pay tribute to “the Spirit of Mama Lula.” Hollandale folk artist Dorothy Hoskins will showcase recent multi-media work on Cotton Pickin’ and Sharecropping in the American South.
You will have to use your will to the believe the gospel when you don't have any faith working in you, until your faith is stirred up. Acting hastily before all the facts are gathered and assimilated can lead us to make erroneous decisions. Faith will be ministered to you as you hear the gospel by the Spirit and it will persuade you to believe, but you will have to use your will to believe while you are overcoming unbelief. When certain teachers came to the Galatians and tried to turn them away from the simplicity that was in Christ Jesus by teaching "another Gospel, "the apostle said that it was a different gospel, but not another; for there is none other than the Gospel. Believing is choosing to trust in God's power, sticking with it, you continue to trust until you recieve what you were trusting God for and if it is his will you will have faith for it, but you will have to believe the gospel to overcome the unbelief in your heart so that the faith of God in you will rule.A In John 6 it is written that this is the work of God that you believe, it is work to believe, it takes much effort in prayer, but I believe that once we overcome the unbelief in our hearts it won't be that hard, I have experienced many times when it was easy to believe, and then a little while later I would be fighting more unbelief and it got hard again.
It is better to lay low, stay quiet, and blend into the environment for a while, learning from the sights and the facts we observe.A Let me give you an example. The reason it is hard is because the power of the devil resisting you, but through faith you overcome him, little by little. All the different religions in the world may well be studied comparatively, for at rock bottom they are all alike; they all set men at trying to earn his own salvation.
They may be called by different names, and the things that men are called to do maybe different in each case, but they all set men trying to save their own souls and earn their way into the favor of God.
Lazy people cannot walk in the power of God, because they won't put forth the effort to believe.A Religious people will believe doctrines that set well with their own heart, that take little, to no effort. What they are doing is trying to conform God to them, instead of them being conformed to Jesus. The University is driven by its commitment to excellence in teaching, learning, service, and research--a commitment resulting in a learner-centered environment that prepares critical thinkers, exceptional communicators, and service-oriented, engaged, and productive citizens. Don't be so foolish, God isn't going to change his ways, we are going to have to be changed, so we can walk with him, in the psalms it say my heart oh God is fixed I will trust in you.A So keep stirring up your faith, keep using your faith, and keep looking unto Jesus the author and finisher of your faith, because the strong in faith will overcome the world. MVSU is fundamentally committed to positively affecting the quality of life and creating extraordinary educational opportunities for the Mississippi Delta and beyond. KHAFRE, Inc.
Their ideas were great, perhaps even from God; but because they had actedbefore they understood the full picture, they ruined their testimony and lost a glorious opportunity. That is why the Gospel is called the Gospel of the Kingdom, for, "Except a man be born again he cannot see the Kingdom of God" (John 3:3,7). It is written again: for neither cicumcision availeth (prevails, overcomes) anything, nor uncircumcision, but faith that worketh by love. In reality, it was utterfoolishness to start such fantastic projects without first understanding the challenges, risks, and dangers. They all need to repent and believe the gospel that Jesus died for their sins was buried and rose again to justify them before it is too late, and no I am not self righteous I have committed lots of sins but I didn't go around and parade them before everybody and say what I am doing is good, but you homosexuals & lesbians are the ones that are self righteous and you are going to perish in your sin if you reject the love of God. Therefore make the choice to move slowly and steadily, gathering all the facts, analyzing the information, and then listening to what the LordA will say to us about the facts we had learned.
Honoring the legacy of  “grandmamma-nem” in a university setting gives artistic and academic license to the pursuit of gaining more scholarship and international acceptance, of the contributions and sweat equity made by the people who picked cotton throughout the American South,” said Professor C.Sade Turnipseed, Executive Director of Khafre, Inc.
Every where that Paul and his companion apostles went they preached the Gospel of the Kingdom of God, and they showed that the only way to get into that Kingdom was by a second birth, and that the only way whereby the second birth could be brought about was through believing the Gospel. Then and only then are you to make anannouncement about your plans.A To make such an announcement without first taking the previous stepswould have been a mistake. As part of Khafre, Inc’s historic preservation efforts, a permanent marker will be placed on the MVSU campus in honor of cotton pickers from the Mississippi Delta, and those who worked the repurposed cotton plantation for higher learning, MVSU.The Symposium is free admission.
Curt Hurley has a simular testimony, when he first heard Doyle preach the gospel, he said this is what we are missing. I strongly advise you to take your time and be sure of the actions you take before you ever act. Khafre, Inc is all about building monumental programs that allow reflection, reconnection, and renewal.
The very fact that all the religions of the world set man to try to work for his own salvation indicates the fact that no man would ever have dreamed of such a Gospel as that which is revealed in this Book.
This is how you are to witness to people, walk in the power of God and speak the things of the Spirit to the people, minister that power to them, but what do religious people do, they pass out tracks and walk up to people and say do you know Jesus? This year’s theme: “Cotton Sacks and Freedom Quilt Narratives” will stimulate a day of discussion about historic preservation, leading-edge research, innovative practices, and foundational values. The agency and resistance of these narratives will also reflect on the subtle and continuing impact of cotton on life in the Delta and throughout the South. Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that He first loved us, and sent His Son to be the propitiation for our sins" (1 John 4:9,10). The one-day event concludes with a good old fashion “black-tie” (or period-piece costume) “Cotton-Pickers’ Ball and Ancestral Celebration” at da’ House of Khafre located at 300 Main St.
Now some people would say I never followed any of those religious ways, well some of you just didn't give a damn about people or God, so don't act so wise.A If you love God or even have a fear of God you will seek to obey his words and you will make some mistakes along the way, but you don't let that bother you, you just keep on trucking. But rather than seize theA moment and walk through that door, they pause to pray just a little bit longer. He does not want it mixed with any of man's theories or laws; He does not want it mixed up with religious ordinances or anything of that kind.
God brought themA exactlyA what they had been praying for, but because they paused, they lost the opportunity. Ok, lets read 2 Corinthians 4:4 In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lestA the light of the gloriousA gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. Fearful that they willA be led astray or that they will make a mistake, they sit on the sidelines and watch other people achieveA success, while they remain right where theya€™ve always been.

How often I have gone to meetings where they told me I would hear the Gospel, and instead of that I have heard some bewildered preacher talk to a bewildered audience about everything and anything, but the Lord Jesus Christ.
Then thou shalt see, and flow together, and thine heart shall fear, and be enlarged; because the abundance of the sea shall be converted unto thee, the forces of the Gentiles shall come unto thee.
Julianne Malveaux; and, introduction by award-winning poet Chinaka Hodge the volume offers a balanced view of what our children face day-to-day, on the streets of America. You see everything and know exactly what is really happening, so I am leaningA on You to lead me in every situation. Over two hundred years ago, the Akan Nation (West Africa) established the Adinkra Symbols to visually communicate a system of living for African people to observe and learn.
For the earth (heart) bringeth forth fruit of herself; first the blade, then the ear, after that the full corn in the ear.
Amazingly, just as with other inspired and spiritual writings, drawings, etc., the symbols are beautiful design concepts with meanings still relevant today. His mind makes me sensible, intelligent, prudent,A discerning, and accurate in the way I think and behave. Because the Holy Spirit isA producing the mind of Christ in my life, I make very few mistakes. So the apostle says, "If Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins" (1 Cor.
In fact, I am getting betterA and better all the time at seeing things accurately and knowing what to do in differentA situations. They bring clarity and resolve to the question, “What do we (the village) have to do to show support and love for each other and ultimately save ourselves and one another?” The experiences of today’s youth culture demonstrate a fundamental disconnect, to most people of previous generations. The young writers selected for this publication masterfully describe the challenge in dealing with today’s world. Have you had a moment in the past when you knew an opportunity was passing before you a€” and you had to strike right at that moment or youa€™d lose the opportunity God was giving you?A 2. We are not preaching the Gospel of a dead Christ, but of a living Christ who sits exalted at the Father's right hand, and is living to save all who put their trust in Him.
That is why those of us who really know the Gospel never have any crucifixes around our churches or in our homes.
A I shared in a previous note how my will was corrupted by sorcery and how I had such a struggle with rebellion, well my will has been changed a lot and I have been taking possession of my soul and recently there has been some real significant changes.A Jesus said repent ye and believe the gospel, this has been the biggest struggle of my life is to believe this gospel. Did you hesitate and lose the golden moment God was trying to drop into your hands, or did you seize the opportunity and strike?A  If you hesitated and lost the opportunity, have you asked the Lord to forgive youA for letting fear defeat you?
Because, it offers tribute to the “original” mother and her instinctual knowing of the spiritual paths that her children (all children) must take to find their way out of harm's way. Revealed, in this collection of writings are a wonderful array of short stories, poems and proverbs that present a familial insight born by the great liberator of liberators, Harriet Tubman!


It just brushes away all man's pretension to any goodness, to any desert excepting judgment. That prophesy is coming to pass in my life!!!A We are to press towards the mark for the prize of the high calling of God in Christ Jesus. It is the Gospel of grace, and grace is God's free unmerited favor to those who have merited the very opposite.
Fearful that they will be led astray or that they will make amistake, they sit on the sidelines and watch other people achievesuccess, while they remain right where theya€™ve always been.
It is as opposite to works as oil is to water." If by grace," says the Spirit of God, "then it is no more works. I do, this is the high life, you can follow the desires of your flesh if you want to, but not me, I have seen the end of that, I am going to follow on to know the Lord!!!A So if your willing to pay the price you can go unto perfection, if God permit, and what is that price?

Now lets read verse 1 in Romans 12 I beseech you therefore brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable unto God, which is your reasonable service.A Then in verse 3 it says God has dealt to every man the measure of faith. A person who didn't have understanding would think the Bible contradicts itself, but it doesn't. God gives the measure of faith to people who present their body to him as a living sacrifice, but not all men will do that. Born in a cabin on a cotton plantation outside Berclair, Mississippi in 1925, his entire life, much like the lives of so many others from the Mississippi Delta, was spent in service to others. If you can read these scriptures and keep them in context than that is what that is saying.
Unfortunately, for most of his contemporaries (colleagues, family of friends) they never received the accolades, appreciation, or respect for their life-long work as cotton-pickers in the American South. You see you have to give your life to God and acknowledge him in all your ways and let him direct your paths if you want the faith of God to work in you. If you will pray without ceasing and mind the things of the Spirit and be obedient to what God is saying and leading you to do and hold fast to the gospel your heart will be straightened out and you will end up walking in the power of God!!!A 1 John 2:15-17 Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.
It is the Gospel of the Glory of God because it comes from the place where our Lord Jesus has entered.
And the world passeth away, and the lust thereof: but he that doeth the will of God abideth for ever. The veil has been rent, and now the glory shines out; and whenever this Gospel is proclaimed, it tells of a way into the glory for sinful man, a way to come before the Mercy Seat purged from every stain. David Matthews, MS Congressman Bennie Thompson, MS Senator Thad Cochran, National Parks Director Dr Jon Jarvis, Mr. Theodore Turnipseed, Sr., and millions of others understand the importance of sharing, and erecting a statue and National Park dedicated to the countless field workers of the American South. To crush (beat to pieces, break) under his feet all the prisoners of the earth, To turn aside the right of man before the face of the most high, To subvert a man in his cause, the Lord approveth not.
Though unrecognized and unappreciated, these people worked from sun up to sun down tilling, planting, chopping, picking and spinning cotton, in the blazing hot sun … This and many other horrifying conditions of the historic Mississippi Delta evoked the music we call “the Blues.”On May 21, 2014, during the last year of his life Mr. One of the professors of the University of Chicago wrote a book a few years ago in which he tried to point out that some of these days Jesus would be superseded by a greater teacher; then He and the Gospel that He taught would have to give way to a message which would be more suited to the intelligence of the cultivated men of the later centuries.
No, no, were it possible for this world to go on a million years, it would never need any other Gospel than this preached by the Apostle Paul and confirmed with signs following; the Gospel which, throughout the centuries has been saving guilty sinners.A THE GOSPEL DECLAREDA What then is the content of this Gospel?
King accepted our call to become the “Honorary Chair” of Khafre, Inc, a Mississippi-based 501(3) not-for-profit organization. Dona€™t allow yourself to get offended at God when he breaks you, just continue to believe the gospel and be healed. For the fruits of righteousness to grow out of a hard heart (soil) it must be broken up(tilled). Maya Angelou as the Honorary Chair of the Cotton Pickers of America and the Sharecroppers Interpretive Center project. The plan is to build a thirty-foot high monument on twenty acres of cotton land along Highway 61, just outside the historic Black town Mound Bayou, MS. This is a historically rare opportunity to transform many lives in the Delta and engage conversations about race and social inequities in America. When Goda€™s servants speak correction, many times it is real hard because God is dealing with the heart, sometimes it is all you can do to sit there and take it, but ministers who walk in the flesh usually speak softly and they only deal with the outward behavior, not the heart, therefore there are no changes in the hearts of the people they minister to. Sade Turnipseed is the Executive Director of Khafre, Inc and teaches American History at Mississippi Valley State University, in Itta Bena, the birthplace of Mr.
And now he says, "I am going to tell you what I have received; it is a real thing with me, and I know it will work the same wonderful change in you.
Your heart has to be prepared (tilled soil) to receive the word of the kingdom (gospel), so it can bring for the fruits of righteousness in you!!!A Jeremiah 18:3-6 Then I went down to the pottera€™s house, and, behold, he wrought a work on the wheels.
And the vessel that he made of clay was marred in the hand of the potter; so he made it again another vessel, as seemed good to the potter to make it. Then the word of the Lord came to me, saying, O house of Israel, cannot I do with you as this potter?
This year’s theme: “Cotton Sacks and Freedom Quilts Narratives” will stimulate a day of discussion about historic preservation, leading-edge research, innovative practices, and foundational values. It began in Eden when the Lord said, "The seed of the woman shall bruise thy head." It was typified in every sacrifice that was offered. I have spent the last three years working a hundred hours a week or longer at times doing hard labor (some of that was in 100 degree weather) and God led me into this situation to bring down my heart with labor, because of rebellion,(psalm 107:10-15) but even when I was doing everything I knew to do, God would break me, why? When He died, when He was buried, and when He rose again, the Gospel could be fully told out to a poor lost world.
Another thing I will say since I have been at WOL I have never went backwards, only forward, God knoweth.A If we sin willfully after we have received the knowledge of the truth, there remained no more sacrifice for sins. Do you know that after you receive the knowledge of the truth you are set free?(John 8:31,32) then if you sin willfully after you have been set free, which means you go back to your sin then you cana€™t be forgiven once you have gone so far in the Lord. People who have had a foundation laid in their heart, they have been enlightened, and after they have tasted the heavenly gift, made partakers of the Holy Ghost, tasted the good word of God and the powers of the world to come, if they fall away, after that it is impossible to be brought to repentance, but some people will have trouble with willful rebellion until their will is renewed and can be forgiven, just dona€™t ever stop going forward, just keep grabbing a hold of your will and use it to obey.
If your salvation depends upon your doing that, you are just as good as checked for Hell, for you never can live it in yourself. No one has ever “officially” said “thank you” to the people in the American South, who literally tilled the way to the economic greatness for many countries and regions around the world.
But the very first message of the Gospel is the story of the vicarious atonement of Christ.
It took a long time for God to renew me in the spirit of my mind (renovate, rebuild my will) - Ephesians 4:23 Notice your spirit is your will. Somewhere along the way the respect and honor for their hard-earned sweat-equity investment in the wealth of others was lost and buried in the bloodstained, tear-soaked soils of the American South. He did not come to tell men how to live in order that they might save themselves; He did not come to save men by living His beautiful life. Anyway God had great mercy on me and I thank him.A I had such a rebellious will, I had to grab a hold of my will over and over and if I relaxed then I would rebel again, but slowly I was overcoming it. I dona€™t care what you think about me, I care about helping people who are bound like I was and I am still coming out this spirit of sorcery.
Something “monumental,” needs to happen…like a National Park named the “Cotton Pickers of America Monument and Sharecroppers Interpretive Center” along the Blues Highway 61. I know I will walk in great power and by the will of God I am going to go get as many people set free and lead them out of bondage as I can. Once the Monument is installed, the organizers’ plan is to turn it over to the federal government for the protection and honor that only this country can provide.
It is horrible to be bound like this, a nightmare that never seems to end, you think will righteousness ever come, yes it will. It shall serve as a permanent reminder and ever-present sign of respect for those whose hope for a brighter day wore thin, while working from kin to kain’t (can’t see in the morning to can’t see at night).The world must be reminded of the work ethic held by the people in the South…in most instances it was an honorable legacy … the tragedy is they were never properly compensated, nor thanked.
Our Father and the Lord Jesus are very merciful and they will never leave us nor forsake us.
I know the Lord Jesus and he does not want people to perish, he died for our sins, was buried, went to hell and was raised from the dead to justify us!!!A The body of Christ does not know what happened to them when they were first born again, some think they got a whole new heart(spirit & soul), others think that just their spirit is reborn, thata€™s what I used to believe, but now I believe the only thing that happened in us, was our spirit was joined to the Lord, then the rest of being transformed into the image of Jesus is a process, many scriptures prove this.
You cana€™t overcome the world when your spirit is first joined to the Lord, but after the new birth is complete you will be able to overcome the world and this is the victory that overcometh the world even our faith.
King, (aka: The King of the Blues) will join the effort to build a National Monument in the Mississippi Delta.
If you do not see that there is no other way of salvation for you, save through the death of the Lord Jesus, then that just tells the sad story that you are among the lost. But, thank God, "the Son of Man is come to seek and to save that which was lost," and seeking the lost He went to the cross. King understands, as do all members of the Khafre, Inc family, that a healing will come through recognition and a true recounting of the history of cotton and its impact in the South.In September, 2009, Khafre, Inc, based in Indianola, Mississippi, embarked upon a journey designed to thank the sons and daughters of the South who helped, albeit it without accolades, fanfare, or even recognition, build the cotton empire that fueled the American economy for nearly two centuries. Can you think of any ingratitude more base than that of a man or woman who passes by the life offered by the Savior who died on the Cross for them? The impetus for the project: Cotton Pickers of America and Sharecroppers Interpretative Center (hereafter referred to as the Cotton Pickers Monument Complex) is the need to thank those who toiled in the Delta soil for generations without the pay, appreciation, or the dignity they deserved. Jesus died for you, and can it be that you have never even trusted Him, never even come to Him and told Him you were a poor, lost, ruined, guilty sinner; but since He died for you, you would take Him as your Savior? The Cotton Pickers Monument Complex would not only help heal wounds that have festered for decades, but would also help to empower the generations of family members who have been negatively impacted by this unfortunate era in American history. This is truly a historic endeavor that has the rare opportunity of actually transforming lives, communities, and the conversations about race in America and throughout the world.           These deeply held convictions of education and empowerment are keys to improving the quality of life for all within the Delta. He died, He was buried, and that was God's witness that it was not a merely pretended death, but He, the Lord of life, had to go down into death. 10:5 Wherefore when he cometh into the world, he saith Sacrifice and offering thou wouldn't not, but a body hast thou prepared me, and in v10 By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once and for all.
They have helped to catapult Khafre into numerous projects, which are all connected to the vision and mission of this value-driven and movement-oriented organization that is designed to provide historical, health related, and cultural education and outreach to the communities of the Mississippi Delta. He was held by the bars of death for those three days and nights, until God's appointed time had come. Khafre has already helped young people successfully publish literature, prepare for careers in the television and radio broadcast industry, produce staged events and engage in healthy behaviors through diet and exercise, all with the assistance of grant dollars and strategic partnerships.The crowning work of Khafre remains the Cotton Pickers Monument Complex, a dream, which is coming closer to fruition, day by day, because of the unprecedented support of Mr. Then, "Death could not keep its prey, He tore the bars away." And so the third point of the Gospel is this, "He was raised again the third day according to the Scriptures. Wherefore in all things it behooved (due, must needs be) him to be made like unto his brethren, that he might be a merciful and faithful high priest in things pertaining to God, to make reconciliation (to atone, be merciful)A for the sins of the people.
Some people say, "Well, but must I repent?" Yes, you may well repent, but that is not the Gospel. We have also received Congressional acknowledgment and endorsement from United States Congressmen, Bennie Thompson and Danny Davis, official endorsements from United States Senators, Thad Cochran and Roger Wicker, and expressed support from Dr John Jarvis, National Parks Director. Carroll Van West and Rebecca Conard from Middle Tennessee State University’s History Department, along with the ongoing partnership with Mississippi Valley State University, has proven a significant benefit to our overall project. We are now ready to raise the $26 million dollars to make the Cotton Pickers Monument complex a reality.
We look forward to hearing from you and to welcoming your partnership in the building of this long overdue and much needed monument.It is time!Most sincerely,C. It is the Spirit of God that overcomes the natural unbelief of the human heart and enables a man to put his trust in that message. The goal is to obtain as much first-hand information as possible relating to the development of America’s Cotton Kingdom (aka the Delta).In the aftermaths of completing the academic study for a Doctorate in Public History at Middle Tennessee State University (MTSU), Professor C. And this is not mere intellectual credence, but it is that one comes to the place where he is ready to stake his whole eternity on the fact that Christ died, and was buried, and rose again. 9:12-14 Neither by the blood of goats and calves, but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us. Turnipseed’s theory that perceptions of sharecropping, tenant farming, etc, will be altered in ways that are beneficial to the legacy of the American South when the memory of elders are shared.
The Lord Jesus said to His disciples, "Go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature.
After the same manner also he took the cup, when he had supped, saying, This cupA is the new testament in my blood: this do ye, as oft as ye drink it, in remembrance of me. For as often as ye eat this bread, and drink this cup, ye do show the Lord's death till he come. The monument site is envisioned to become a National Park; and thereby “the place” for memory and community sharing in the Mississippi Delta, for educational, economic development, and international tourism purposes. King and former honorary chair Dr Maya Angelou who are determined to improve the legacy and social-economic status of Mississippi Delta residents. I did an audio clip a few years back teaching the word of God and uploaded it to the internet and I went to my website and clicked on the link to hear it and when I did, I was very encouraged because my words were with power.


I had ministered the power God to people when praying for them, but when I previously spoke my voice was weak and I could sense little if any faith. The purpose of the organization is to provide educational, lifestyle and cultural programs, build monuments and memorials to honor, celebrate, and recognize the rich and complex history of the Mississippi Delta and to positively impact the quality of life of those living in the Delta, especially the disproportionately poor African American community. If you have been resting in anything short of the Christ who died, who was buried, who rose again, I plead with you, turn from every other fancied refuge, and flee to Christ today. So as I said I was encouraged when I heard my audio, then the Lord began to remind me of a minister whoa€™s church I use to attend in Farmers Branch TX. So as I thought on this I knew in my heart God was saying to me, that is a false anointing in you Scott.A Right after that, I went to church and God begin to convince me I was a sorcerer and my heart sunk just like it had been doing for years anytime God had convinced me of sin or showed me my wicked heart. There is no documented official acknowledgment of the people who tilled the path to America’s greatness. V6 whom the Lord loves he chastens v8 all are partakers of correction, if not you remain a bastard v11 the chastening is grievous, but afterwards yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness v12 so lift up your hands that hang low and the feeble knees v13 make straight paths for your feet, lest that which is lame be turned out of the way.A A The human soul is absolutely scared to death to face that it is wicked, because the law of Moses in us causes our own hearts to condemn us and we are convinced we would go to hell if we accepted that we were wicked and therefore many will not hear what God is saying concerning correction, especially when it zeros in on the root of the problem and that is mana€™s heart is evil and I talking about people who are born again and think they are a new creature in Christ, because salvation is all a process to transform us spirit, soul, and body into the image of Jesus.
Somewhere along the way buried in the tear-soaked soils of the American South, the respect and honor for their hard-earned investment was lost. The Cotton Pickers of America Monument, Sharecroppers Interpretive Center, and Cotton Kingdom Trail make the case for building a National Park that offers a small token of appreciation for their tireless uncompensated work. You know under the law of Moses it is written I would not suffer a witch to live or a man or woman that hath a familiar spirit or is a wizard or adulterer, they are all put to death. Sade Turnipseed is the founder of Khafre, Inc., which has developed the Cotton Pickers of America Monument, the Sharecroppers Interpretive Center, and the Cotton Kingdom Historical Trail, among many other projects. Romans 2:15 The condemnation isna€™t that we are wicked, the condemnation is men loved darkness rather than light and therefore they wona€™t come to the light.

Turnipseed is the recipient of several community service and arts advocacy awards, and she was an independent candidate for mayor of the city of Indianola in 2013. For the past eight years Turnipseed was the host of “Delta Renaissance,” a cultural arts talk show focusing on the arts, education, and political issues in the Mississippi Delta.
For if they escaped not who refused him that spake on earth, much more shall not we escape, if we turn away from him that speaketh from heaven. So dona€™t be afraid to hear God and let him correct you, because he is not doing it to condemn you, but to set you free. Winter Building Wednesday, June 18: Former Secretary of State Dick Molpus talks about his experience during the Philadelphia civil rights murders of 1964. This is the wisdom of God to draw a contrast between the servants of God and those who give their own opinion, so that the sheep can clearly see who is of God and who isn't. Wednesday, July 2: Filmmaker Wilma Mosley-Clopton will show and discuss her new film, "Did Johnny Come Marching Home?" about people of African descent who fought to free themselves in the Civil War. Philippians 1:6 Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ.
This is a familiar scripture, that I have heard taught over the years, it is a common scripture on religious tracts and it has been misapplied. This is how it was taught, we have all sinned and come short of Goda€™s holy nature, therefore we must receive Jesus Christ and then start living a moral life by going to church and practicing Christian principles.A What that scripture is saying is we have all sinned in that we didna€™t believe God and therefore we didna€™t give glory to God.
Wednesday, September 25: Author Robert Blade will talk about his book, "Tupelo Man," a biography of George McLean. When preachers instruct their congregation or their listening audience to practice scriptures without telling them they must believe God and be led by the Spirit then they seduce them from the faith. Preachers take a stand against many sins except unbelief, which is the one sin that keeps you from being saved from all your other sins. If you want to deal with sin in your life then you must trust in Goda€™s power that he worked in Jesus when he raised him from the dead.
I whole-heartedly agree with the editor that the African American community has proven to the world an uncanny, though unreciprocated, ability to be forgiving of past deeds of injustice, brutality and cruelty at the voting polls, and socially in their community service groups, churches and everyday lives. This point should not be lost on the fact that many of those injustices happened here, in Indianola, Mississippi, to some amazingly strong and resilient individuals like Fannie Lou Hamer and all those who came before her. But, I can’t help but wonder why the White community isn’t reciprocating and showing the same confidence and trust in racial relations?As Smith indicates, the incumbent received “between 32 and 37% of the votes in the three wards with large Black majorities, despite going up against two black opponents, with strong followings.
That’s impressive for a white candidate in a city and region with a history of racially divided politics.” I agree. When we examine the voter polls in the wards that are predominately African American, reflected is a general evenness for all candidates, be they Black or White. The same, however, cannot be said about the two wards that reflect the primarily White community. I submit to you the following:In wards I, and II, which are the two wards with the largest white population of voters, we see results that reflect an uncompromising resistance to acceptance and change.
With an overall total of 952 votes cast: 732 went to the White candidate and 220 for the two Blacks, combined)…check that! Surely, it cannot be left up to one segment of the community, and not the other.I truly wish Smith had stressed this very critical point, instead of throwing shade on the outcome of a campaign I have yet to wage. And for the record, as a citizen, it is my right to be afforded the opportunity to run a fair and unbiased race for mayor, without subtle suggestions that it is a waste of my time, as inferred in his editorial.
But, then again maybe he knows more than I about how citizens of wards I and II will ultimately vote. And to also trust that the leaders of this community will look out for their best interest, politically, economically and socially. After all we live in a community that is 84% African American with a poverty rate that is fast approaching 40% and a public school system that is in deplorable condition, both physically and academically, even under the watchful eye of the government, yet there is no outrage…from either the White side, or the Black side of town.
And, I have never believed it was necessary to wait until political season to demonstrate my commitment to the people in my community.
If, by chance I am truly embraced by all members of all wards of this city, I believe people will witness an amazing transformation in a relatively short period of time.
It’s “almost” like magic…I predict things will begin to unfold in a substantive way like the neighborhoods will brighten, crime decreases and the impoverished mindset disappears.
And I am passionate enough to find the tools to help remedy the concerns that create stagnation and distrust. Please remember, we are a people who come from a very long tradition of women who made a way out of no way.My overall ambition and hope for this city is to develop a strategic plan that enables a steady stream of culturally enriched projects that insures economic development for the future growth and safety in this city. We are not preaching the Gospel of a dead Christ, but of a living Christ who sits exalted at the Father's right hand, and is living to save all who put their trust in Him. So programs that not only engage everyone, but present real opportunities for career enhancements and social activities are critical.
King Museum that I visualized and administered) Thanks Carver Randle, Sr for that wonderful quote. I just wish he read my bio, or googled me, before publishing doubts about my abilities for success. It just brushes away all man's pretension to any goodness, to any desert excepting judgment. For the past three years, I have been sitting relatively quietly completing the doctorate in history. It is the Gospel of grace, and grace is God's free unmerited favor to those who have merited the very opposite. Now, I am ready to shake up this town with some bold ideas and ever increasing standards for excellence. I look forward to being a significant force in this community, by helping the White community too recognize the benefits of building relationships that they can trust in leadership positions.
We MUST work together to improve our community—by encouraging EVERYONE to clean on our streets, bayou, parks, etc. We have some huge unmet challenges here in Indianola, and how YOU decide to vote On December 10, 2013, is vital to our success. Also, please be sure to come to this year's event in your overalls, or cotton pickin' clothes.
The event is the impetus that gave rise to the “Remigration Home from Chicago to Mississippi” cultural movement organized by music promoters Gus Redmond and Robert Terrell.

Though the Ball is a “Black Tie Affair” Overalls or other “cotton pickin” attire are encouraged and expected.“I am so pleased that we have partnered with Khafre to host an event of this magnitude,” said Dr. The discussions and historical presentations will reflect cutting-edge research, innovative practices and foundational values.
Additionally, two noted scholars from Mali’s Cotton Manufacturing and Distribution will present via Skype.MVSU participants in the program include Dr. John Jones, interim provost.As part of the celebration, Khafre plans to erect a permanent marker on the site in honor of cotton pickers from the Mississippi Delta and in commemoration of the significance of this historical event.
This will be a day of stimulating discussion about historic preservation, leading-edge research, innovative practices, and foundational values.
The two-day event concludes with a good-old-fashion “black-tie” (or period-piece costume) “Cotton-Pickers’ Ball,” on October 18, 2013. This year Khafre, Inc in conjunction with Mississippi Valley State University shall organize the USA’s premier interdisciplinary professional meeting on cotton, sharecropping, and its cultural significance.

These artists and many others will perform on da historical Front Porch stage where the legendary bluesman Sam Chatmons music room door is gracefully hinged. The door, the traditional quilts, the African art, the sweet smell of Soul Food and the Delta cotton provide a rural sophistication and ambiance that is reminicient of the culture and folk art once owned and coveted by grandmamma-nem. Indeed, it is "The home for artful giving, music and songs," as Chicago-based Blues promoter Lynn Orman Weiss described da' House on her most recent visit to the Delta.
And, since da' House is located at the epicenter of the Cotton Kingdom, visitors can expect that authentic soothing, and often times healing, Mississippi Delta experience to be dosed up in abundantly royal fashion, every time they come to da' House! Co-owners Robert Terrell and C.Sade Turnipseed extend a personal and heartfelt invitation for everyone to come on out to da House and help celebrate two-years of Delta art, music and culture. She is also the first African-American female president to lead a Mississippi public university.
