A BEAUTIFUL PLACE by Larry Corkins
Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, people often say. I, however behold a different kind of beauty, for I AM the One Who makes all things beautiful. I make the flowers in the ground, that grow to make the world a more beautiful place. I make the sunset and the sunrise, in all their splendor. I put the stars in the sky, so that they will light up the night with a beautiful glow. I also, beheld all of you before the world saw, and I liked what I had made. The ultimate beauty, however, is what I see in your heart. A beautiful person is beautiful to ME, when the heart is beautiful and kind. To be of beautiful heart, you must have kindness inside it, overflowing with love for your fellow man and woman.
Beautiful is MY Nature. Not the kind of beauty that man sees, but the beauty of innocence in a child. The beauty of joy in a person’s spirit when they have experienced a miracle. The beauty of happiness in a sibling who makes the other laugh. The beauty of a proud parent when his or her child has done something extraordinary. The beauty of helping out a stranger in need. And the beauty of peace in your heart and soul that only I can give you.
I was created by MY FATHER to be beautiful. Not the beauty on the outside, but the beauty on the inside, where all of the secrets are kept. It is more honorable to hide good deeds, than to hide bad thoughts and bad behavior. And you cannot hide from ME, JESUS.
You have turned the beauty that I gave to the world into a disgraceful thing. The earth is filled with false beauty. People are changing how they look, in order to be more beautiful to the world, but you were already beautiful to ME. Doesn’t MY opinion matter? MY FATHER told ME that beauty is within the heart and soul, so I search those places to find the true you.
Satan turns beautiful people into ugly people. He uses people to get back at MY FATHER and I. His beauty is only fleeting, lasting for a short time, but the beauty of the LORD stands forever. Don’t worry about how you look to the world. They cannot see your inner beauty. I, though, see everything. Your beauty is stored up in your heart, but you have lost the key. I can give you back your beauty and restore your heart, but you have to ask ME. Please, for your sake, ask ME to come into your heart. I will make you feel beautiful once again.
God Got Me by Lenard Pierce
GOD GOT ME
God got me; it’s easy to see, with all the blessings surrounding me.
He’s there in my time of need; all I have to do is say Father please.
Certain people I meet, I find confirmation in the things they speak.
The first thing comes outta their mouth is that God got you, all I can say no doubt it’s my breakthrough.
The small signs are the hope and faith that stays on my mind.
I close my eyes at night, looking forward to the next day as I bow my head and humbly pray.
Blessed in more ways than one, covered by the blood of The Most Holy Son.
Yet I’m not where I need to be, but I’m much closer to my true destiny.
God got me that’s for sure, His Mercy and Grace is forever more.
So now I’ m a winner, it wasn’t much profit in being a sinner.
I see these blessings day by day, and God’s messengers confirms what I say.
Through life’s complexities and perplexities God got me, he sent Angels in disguise that took me by surprise.
Yes God Got Me, confirmation is in the blessings I see.
God Knows Man by Lenard Pierce
God made man, He knows everything about him, man was meant to be perfect but fell short in sin.
Man became knowledgeable with a will of his own, tampered with the wrong tree disobeying The King on the throne.
Sitting high looking low, God overseeing His creation, opening and closing every door.
Man disregarded the powers of The Lord, so God command that life be hard.
The serpent, who started man’s downfall, is Satan roaming the earth making other bad calls.
God allowed the demon to control, knowing that some would repent and others will lose their soul.
The Lord provided a way to salvation, His son Jesus to save mortal creation.
Otherwise man would perish, for disregard and the sin he cherish.
Jesus was God in the flesh, gathering up sinners to clean up their mess.
Some wouldn’t see it His way, they refuse to surrender sin, bow down and pray.
Caught up in the lust that the devil presented, too foolish to take notice to the evil that God resented.
Satan laughing and celebrating man’s downfall, mocking God for the souls that didn’t make a saving call.
The world is an evil place, but soon every soul will have to look God in the face.
On judgment day everyone will fall to their knees, much too late to scream Father please.
For living in disarray there’s a penalty that man must pay.
His destination is eternal fire for latching on to Satan the liar.
God knows man and everything he has done, man’s biggest mistake was disregarding The Son
REV. DR. MARTIN LUTHER KING, JR. WAS A PROPHET Written by: Larry Corkins (GOD’S WRITER and Prophet)
GOD says, "My good and faithful servant, Martin, was indeed one of MY Prophets. You missed it while he was here, but MY ANNOINTING was always on him. Did you really think that he was just an ordinary man who did extraordinary work on MY behalf? No, I say. I made him for his time. To serve ME, and mankind. There is no excuse for people to not listen to MY WORDS. I love you and do all things for your good." Why do you think that GOD only had Prophets in the times of the Bible? Well, HE did. Do you not know that all history of mankind is in the Bible, even now and the future? Yes, we still live in Bible times. We always have. We are in the last day. In the Bible, we are in Revelation, and we will be in the Bible until the end when some will live with GOD forever and ever. Others will be cast into the lake of sulfur.
Martin Luther King, Jr. led people out of bondage, as did Moses. GOD made things happen in a way that Moses met his destiny, and fulfilled it by leading the Israelite out of Egypt. King led people out of a different form of slavery. The kind where they tell you that you are free, but you cannot do what we do, or use what we use, because you are less than human. And check out his name, King. I say to you that it was no mistake that his last name was King. JESUS is the KING, and the KING of KINGS; and one of the Kings that JESUS was the King of was Martin Luther King, Jr.
King had the same non-violent stance as JESUS HIMSELF. And how can you explain how he knew just what to do that would finally bring equality to a race of people who have been mistreated over hundreds of years. Notice that the Hebrews were slaves for 430 years (Exodus 12:40), and the slaves in America were held in bondage for over 400 years also. Coincidence? Not hardly. History repeating itself.
Prophets know things that other people do not, because GOD tells them. (How do you think I know this about Dr. King?) King knew that he would not be around any longer, when he gave his last speech. Remember, he said that he had a dream. He would not get to the mountain top with us. Not long after that, he was killed. How could he have known that he would not be around any longer, and say that right before his death. He knew because GOD told him! That is how
GOD works with HIS Prophets.
There are still Prophets in the world, and you do not recognize them. Prophets are sent to earth to lead people to CHRIST. Prophets are here to tell you things that you need to know to help you get right and get into Heaven. There are also false prophets. Beware of them.

HOLD YOUR ANGER, AND LET ME HANDLE IT Written by: Larry Corkins (GOD’S WRITER and Prophet)
Things will happen in this world that make you mad. I want you to hold your anger, and turn it over to ME to handle. I can do what you cannot. MY justice will see you through. It takes more strength not to react to something that makes you mad, than it does to just let anger take you over.
I made you to be like ME, and I have shown you how to hold your anger. I held MINE when I was beaten and crucified. Nothing you are going through in your everyday life is as bad as that.
You are a man, but I AM GOD. I can handle anything, and I want to handle all of your problems for you. I love when you have ME in your life. I love when you follow MY Ways. I love when you give ME your problems. I love all of these things, because I love you. I know you think you are not supposed to say you love another man, being a heterosexual male, but I AM talking about brotherly love. I can say that I love you, because I AM GOD, and I made you. I AM JESUS, and I put my attributes in you.
Anger is something that Satan wants you to feel. Love can conquer anger. MY love can conquer Satan. You cannot fight him, but I have already won any fight he tries to start. With ME, you have no need for anger, as I will use MY anger against your enemy. Just stand still and let ME handle everything. People will always do things that can make you angry, but be slow to anger and pray for ME to take care of it. When someone does you wrong, don’t do anything to them. Pray for ME to bless them, instead, then I will take care of them in MY Way, and bless you. Be at peace, for a peaceful man is a happier man. And a man who has ME has peace always
A Message From LeeAry Williams
IT SEEM THAT I HAVE BEEN DOWN THIS ROAD SEVERAL ROAD DIFFERENT TIMES AND EACH TIME I SEEM TO PICK UP MORE UNDERSTANDING. BUT I AM A LEADER AND WHAT I SAY, DO, TEACH, PREACH AND BELIEVE GOES A LONG WAY IN THIS WORLD. SOMEBODY IS WATCHING EVERY MOVES I MAKE AND THE LORD HAS GIVEN TO ME A CHECK AND BALANCE SYSTEM, IF YOU KNOW THE WORD--WHAT-WOULD-JESUS-DO! NOT ONLY THIS, BUT I HAVE A BACK-UP SYSTEM, MEN AND WOMEN OF GOD ON STAND-BY, IF NEED BE I WILL CONTACT EACH ONE OF THEM, AND I AM NOT LOOKING FOR A AMEN CORNER BUT WHAT SAID LORD.
BEFORE I GO ANY FARTHER LET US DEFINE (ACCOUNTABLE),
1.ANSWERABLE, RESPONSIBLE, 2. EXPLICABLE---NEW EDITION OF MERRIAM-WEBSTER DICTIONARY
(ACCOUNTABILITY), RESPONSIBILITY FOR OWN ACTS--THE OPEN BIBLE-KING JAMES VERSION. IN ROMANS 14:11-13, IN THE 12 VERSE, SO THEN EACH OF US SHALL GIVE ACCOUNT OF HIMSELF TO GOD." IN 2 SAMUEL 12:13-14, DAVID REPENTS FOR HIS SIN BUT IN 15-23 GOD TAKES AWAY THE SON OF ADULTERY. OFTEN TIMES I HEARD PREACHERS SAY GOD WILL NOT BLESS A MESS BUT IN 24-25 GOD GIVES ANOTHER SON. I REMEMBER READING ABOUT THE PARABLE OF
THE TALENTS ESPECIALLY THE UNPROFITABLE SERVANT. (MATTHEW 25:14-30)
SOMETIMES I WONDER ABOUT MY ACCOUNTABILITY WHEN IT COMES TO SPREADING THE GOSPEL AND HOW I TREATING OTHERS, ESPECIALLY MY WEAKER BROTHER. PRINCIPLES OF LIBERTY AND THE WEAKER BROTHER IN 1 CORINTHIANS 8:1-13. THERE ARE SO MANY THINGS THAT WE AS WHOLE FALL SHORT OF GIVING OUR BEST. A MANY OF I HAVE BEEN AFRAID TO ASK FOR HELP BECAUSE OF STATEMENTS MADE BY SAINTS. I MUST ADMITTED THAT WE MUST A SYSTEM BUT A SYSTEM RUN BY LOYAL AND FAITHFUL PEOPLE. WHEN YOU ARE ON THE RIGHT TRACK, SOMETIMES LIKE DAVID IT IS YOU, LEEARY OR YOU. THE EARLY CHURCH HAD IT RIGHT, GOD WILL NOT BLESS A MESS, CHICKEN & FISH PLATES, BINGO & RAFFLES TICKETS. WE ARE PLEASING TO GOD WE ARE HIS CHURCH! WIN SOUL AND HE PROVIDED!
GOD GIVES GIFTS Written by: Larry Corkins (GOD’S WRITER and Prophet)
GOD always sends people to earth with many talents, or gifts from the love of the LORD. People always think that they only have one gift or no gift at all, but that is simply not true. Take entertainers for example. Prince, who we just lost to Heaven, was blessed with many gifts. He was an amazing singer, dancer, song-writer, performer, actor, director, producer, and had the amazing gift to be able to play more instruments than thought to be humanly possible. He also had the gift of love, which he shared with the world. Michael Jackson was blessed to be the greatest entertainer the world has ever known, with his gifts to write songs, produce, direct videos, not to mention his incredible voice and he was the greatest dancer who ever lived. There will never be another.
Each one of you has more gifts than you even realize too. If you can clean your house better than anyone you know, then you have that gift. If you cook better than others in your family, then that is a gift. You can be great at something, and still have other things that you have been gifted with. If you can make people feel better with a smile or kind words, then that is a gift from GOD. Never believe that you have no gifts, because everyone who has ever been created and made by GOD, has more than one gift.
A friend of mine, Tomi Jenkins, of the funk/r & b group Cameo, is a perfect example of a man who has been blessed to have many gifts. You all know him as a singer and performer in one of the greatest groups ever. Remember the song, Word Up? That was just one of the amazing songs that they had, and singing in the group is just one of the gifts that Tomi has. He is currently working on his own new EP titled: A Life To Remember, which should be completed in about a month or so, with a video coming out after the end of July. Yes, you would expect Tomi to sing, but not by himself. GOD did not stop there. Tomi wrote a novel in 2013, called: Crime, Love and Honor, under his whole name, Thomas Michael Jenkins. It is a crime drama, but with elements of love and honor, about a P.I. named Philip Hardaway. Tomi is working on the sequel now, which is called: Dolly Moon: A Philip Hardaway Mystery. Be on the lookout for that. As you can see, you never expected to see Tomi write a novel, and now it will be two. Maybe by the time he writes his sixth novel, people will recognize his gifts as more than just being a musician in a famous group. As I said before, GOD gives us many gifts. It is just a matter of you recognizing what you are good at and using that gift wisely and in a way that makes the LORD proud to have given the gifts to you.
Never forget to thank the LORD for all of the gifts that HE has supplied you with. As easy as it was for HIM to give you the gift, HE could just as easily take the gift away from you. Too many people in the world take their gifts for granted and never give thanks to the LORD for the wonderful gifts that HE has given. My own children have been blessed with many gifts, just as yours have. My oldest son, for example, is currently working on demos, as he is a Positive/Christian rapper who writes his own amazing lyrics, and they are amazing. I have no doubt that you will be hearing from him soon. His name is Laurence Corkins, but raps under the name of Imso Blessed, pronounced I’m so blessed. He has many more gifts, which I thank GOD for every day. My other children have their own gifts too. Your children also have many gifts that they have been blessed with, as well as you do. Try to recognize those gifts and thank GOD for them as HE likes to be recognized for what HE does too.
Look inside yourself and take inventory of all of the gifts that you possess. I truly believe that you will find that you have many more gifts than you ever knew that you had. Be the best that you can be, which is the best of what GOD has made in you. One of the greatest gifts that has ever been given is the gift of love, which we all need and are all capable of. Let’s bless each other with the gift of love and compassion and understanding. That is the best gift of all and we all have it in us. Let’s give the gift of love to all who come in contact with us daily. God bless, and thank you LORD for my gifts and yours!
Until next month, God be with you all and your gifts,
Why Should We Schedule Our Prayer Times by
God commanded set festivals to be celebrated yearly for all Jews. These festivals were to be observed for ever, see example in Exodus 12:14. These set festivals are a time when God Himself is expecting the observance and He makes Himself available even to the unbeliever. Likewise there are daily set times of prayer when God is waiting for fellowship with Him and expecting the recognition as Our Divine Helper by our scheduling these set times each day.
Adam and Eve had a set time to pray recorded in Genesis 3:8. 'Then they heard the sound of the Lord God walking in the garden in the evening or the cool of the day. The man and his wife hid themselves from the Lord God among the trees of the garden.' The cool of the day was the time of day when there was an evening breeze. Song of Solomon 2:17 "Until the cool of the day when the shadows flee away, Turn, my beloved, and be like a gazelle Or a young stag on the mountains of Bether." When is the cool of the day? The original Hebrew text uses the word 'ruach' that is translated to the English phrase 'cool of the day.' The Hebrew word 'ruach' in this text means wind or breeze. It is the late evening hours, the time of the cool evening breeze or the ruach wind that comes during the cooler part of the day. 'When the cool evening breezes were blowing (3-6PM), the man and his wife heard the LORD God walking about in the garden. So they hid from the LORD God among the trees. In the cooler part of each day usually the time of the evening breeze God scheduled fellowship with Adam and Eve and both God and the First Family looked forward to the daily fellowship. This format of intimacy was God's primary will for mankind then in the Garden of Eden and also today through Jesus Christ. After the fall of man things changed and man was afraid to meet with God daily. Man stopped fellowship with God and only after the second generation past Adam did man begin to call out to God again from a distance not through the original intimacy.
See Genesis 4:25-26 King James Version (KJV)
25 And Adam knew his wife again; and she bare a son, and called his name Seth: For God, said she, hath appointed me another seed instead of Abel, whom Cain slew. 26 And to Seth, to him also there was born a son; and he called his name Enos: then began men to call upon the name of the Lord.
God needs intimacy and fellowship, that is why we were created, thus let prayer be the first disciplined step towards original intimacy! The next point is in order to fully understand set times for daily prayer we should understand what a Jewish day is as compared with a Roman day. The Roman Day starts at 12 midnight as compared with the Jewish 24 hour day that starts at Sunset.
The Jewish Day and Night Established in Genesis
The Jewish 24 hour day begins with night first followed by day light time. Sunset to sunset. The Jewish 24 hour day is divided into 12 night time hours from sunset to sunrise and 12 daytime hours from sunrise to sunset. The set hours of prayer are mainly within the daylight hours except for those who are called to an intimate ministry with God who include the midnight watch. Midnight praying is also imperative during critical situations or when in satanic captivity by satanic strongholds and satanic systems.
Gen 1:1,2 In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.. Now the earth was formless and empty, darkness was over the surface of the deep, and the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters.
Gen 1:3 And God said, Let there be light: and there was light.
Gen 1:5 And God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And the evening and the morning were the first day.
Gen 1:14 And God said, Let there be lights in the firmament of the heaven to divide the day from the night; and let them be for signs, and for seasons, and for days, and years:
Gen 1:15-16 And let them be for lights in the firmament of the heaven to give light upon the earth: and it was so. 16 And God made two great lights; the greater light to rule the day, and the lesser light to rule the night: he made the stars also.
According to Genesis there are 12 hours of night time hours and 12 hours of day time hours. The statements "darkness was over the surface of the deep,..And the evening and the morning were the first day," are significant because they explain what time of day creation actually began. The statements also help us understand why the Jewish Sabbath begins at sundown. Creation and more specifically the first day of creation began in darkness and thus the day originally began with evening followed by day time hours. This paradigm of evening starting a new day consistent with the creation sequence was common until Julius Ceasar proposed a change to the calendar in 45 A.D. known as the Julian calendar which was updated to the Gregorian calendar in 1582 by Pope Gregory XIII. Jews recognized the creation 'evening followed by day' sequence during the time of Christ and beyond and Orthodox Judaism especially still follows the creation sequence of evening followed by day.

Heavenly Love by Larry Corkins
Hate has become the norm in our everyday life, but that is not what Jesus wants for us. It has become so prevalent that even Presidential candidates have used hate to move forward their own agendas. People have come to blows at candidates rallies, which is way out of character for a political event. Even so, it has become a real problem in America this year. Why should we follow that example when hate divides people, not bring them together? Is this what our country has come to? Do people even matter anymore? Does anyone care about other people?
Jesus cares, and He cares just as much today as He did the day He died on a cross for all of us. He loves us so much that He got back up and made sure that the people closest to Him saw that He had risen and was with them still. Now, that is love, real and true love. That is a Heavenly love. That is the kind of love that only a GOD can have and give to all of us. Jesus gives us His love, a Heavenly love, each and every day that we live. This same love is the love that He wants us to know and share with each other, like He shares with us, giving us comfort and solace in a troubled time and a hateful world.
Heavenly love is the kind of love that knows no boundaries, a never ending blessing from the LORD Himself. Jesus wants us to know the kind of love that makes you feel special. Jesus is special and His love is special and Heavenly. People will let you down, make you mad and just plain disappoint you, but if you have a Heavenly love, then you will be able to withstand anything that is against what you feel inside that is not of GOD and designed to make you miserable. The world has given up on Jesus, preferring to follow the path that Satan has made easy for everyone, which keeps them away from GOD and His love.
Don’t fall victim to the path that Satan has set forth for you all, as he convinces you to give up on the LORD and follow the evil and hateful ways of the world. Jesus is all about loving us, so you should learn to love and not to show hatred toward anyone. We all go through things and need the help that we can get from people who care. Jesus cares more than anyone you have ever known or ever will know. We have to follow His example, to forgive, which leads us to love. Life on this earth is far too short, so why waste it hating other people? Jesus does not hate you, even if you follow hateful actions that you think define you.
Let’s show compassion for one another. Let’s not trip about anything that we do not
Understand. We have to be forgiving and loving toward anyone and everyone. Jesus lives by love and for love, so as followers of His we must also show love. There is no feeling better than love, and the love that comes from the Heavens is more than any love that anyone on earth has ever felt or will feel. The next time that someone makes you feel like you do not matter, don’t hate on them, just show them love and then they will want to know more about it. Their curiosity will find them true love, Jesus’ love, the ultimate love, a Heavenly love. It conquers all things and realizes much. If you want to know what Jesus would do, you do not have to wonder, just love each other. That would be Heavenly.
I will probably write more the next time, but this is what came to me.
God bless you,

Ye Have Not, Because Ye Ask Not by Kelvin Cain
Many of our Lords Words have been portrayed by man as clichés and superficial, one dimensional meanings. In the Christian family, we regurgitate most of what we've heard without an intimate, detailed study of that particular thing. If it rolls off the tongue well, then it must be supreme Truth and the sanctuary goes wild (in my sports announcers’ voice).
The 4th chapter of the book of James has undoubtedly been used by many who are loyal to the demonic "Gospel of Getting". It would appear that it doesn't matter that Jesus is quoted by Paul in Acts 20:35 saying "It is better to give than to receive". Can somebody point me in the direction of the Gospel of Giving? Where have you ever witnessed the passion for prosperity in the passion of giving? Prosperity is a sold out show, while giving is an ignored classic. When we read the entire chapter of any study verse, it gives us much needed context for maximum comprehension & understanding, while simultaneously growing our spiritual discernment. Truth will do that, if you didn't know that already. James 4:3 Ye ask, and receive not, because ye ask amiss, that ye may consume it upon your lusts.
We know that the definition of Amiss is - 1. not quite right; inappropriate or out of place. 2. in a mistaken way, in a faulty way. So immediately out of the gate, one word changes much of the presumed context. This is no longer about simply asking for something, this is about how and why one may ask for something. It's about God knowing our hearts and identifying the integrity thereof. This small but essential detail escapes many whose hearts are ironically in a state of "amiss". God is not a slot machine, A sugar daddy or an ATM. Most scriptures have conditions that must be met in order to "get" a thing or receive a blessing or gift. Here are a couple. John 14:15-16 If ye Love me keep my commandments AND I will pray the Father, and He shall give you another Comforter. Romans 8:28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. The conditions in John 14 are "Love me and keep my commandments". The conditions in Romans are Love God and called according to His purpose.
So now we see that God has not opened up a spiritual soup kitchen where all you are required to do is show up. There could be many reasons why any individual fits the "have not" category. 1. It may not be in God's will for you to be the CEO of IBM. 2. God is waiting on some "Him Time" and you're fresh out because you gave it all to your family and your job. 3. Sin is preventing You from meeting the scriptural conditions of a particular blessing. 4. You have no Godly inspired purpose for that thing in which you want. The God of creation is not a microwave or "just add water" God. He's teaching, training and protecting us. God has purpose for every interaction we have with Him. What parent gives their loving child things that will kill them or keep them from becoming the best that they could be? If you really want the desires of your heart, ask God to give you the desires of HIS heart in place of the desires that you have right now. This is the absolute sure way to have all that God has in store for you and guess what? You won't even have to ask for it...:)
Matthew 6:33 But seek ye FIRST the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you. Now, can you identify the conditions in Matthew 6? :)
