There is no (pre) tribulation rapture that is an deception by Satan to deceive everyone. I'm sorry but grace is not going save u. Everyone will go through the tribulation. Keeping your faith in Christ even through the scariest trouble world will ever see is the true test. Earth is going into her birth pains now.

1: Now if believe in worshipping false images if Christ, then you are deceived.

2: If you believe that all man made religions Christianity, Muslim, Hindu, Islam Catholicism are from The Most High God. Than you are deceived.

Why ? Cause man made religions comes from Satan. They were all founded on masonry and satanic rituals, and sacrifices. Look up the history behind all religions.

3: Why would The Most High God would send his son to rapture pagans. Christians are pagans also, how so?

You worships the Sabbath on a Sunday. The true Sabbath is Saturday.

Christians don't believe in keeping The Most High God commandments and laws. They believes that When Christ was crucified that we are no longer under the old testament. Again the devil has deceived many.

That is how the True biblical Hebrews fell, were conquered and enslaved scattered to the four corners of the earth. That is where they still are today. To find them they have to fit to curses in the book of Deuteronomy. Which is not hard to figure out.

All man made holidays are pagan and an abomination to the Most High.

1. Christmas is not the Messiah's birthday. Christ was not born December 25, Christ was born during the time of harvest when shepherds kept the fields. That was during the fall. Christ was born in the fall. Who harvest crops in December.

2. Easter Sunday has nothing to do with the Resurrection of Christ. Christ rose on Saturday on the Sabbath.

3. Thanksgiving a peace treaty broken by Columbus and all European settlers. When they tricked the Native Indians who were one of the lost tribe of Israel. The Native American Indians, They are the tribe of Gad.

4. Columbus day: Columbus was not discovering new land. Instead he found out where lost Tribes of were hiding. He discovered the tribe of Reuben the Seminole Indians aboriginals of australia, tribe of Joseph who were Manasseh the Cubans and Ephraim the Puerto Ricans. Columbus went back home and told what he found. They returned back to those islands with their ships and people deceived them and conquered their land. Columbus is no hero, history i learned in school is a lie. Only thing that Europeans and Caucasians did was bring death misery to my people with deceit, murdering and robbing. My people heritage was stolen from us. Whitewashed and covered by the Roman Catholic
Church. Basically I am speaking of Esau.

5. Mother and Fathers day: We are not above the father or the son.

6: Independence Day: Founded on free Masonry beliefs and blood of another nation. This land became tainted when it was taken by deceit and murder anyway. This land I was also built by the slaves of America. The Negroes slaves of America who are of tribe of Judah.

7. Halloween: Worshipped by Satanists and the Druids of Ireland who did sacrificing of animals and children, humans, etc.. to please the spirits of demons.

There are many more.

Christians and Other nations eat unclean and abominable things that are disgusting to the Most High.

1. Pork a pig

2. Snails

3. Lobsters and shrimp, catfish, crab, squid, octopus, shark.

You'll be surprise what all nations eat.

4: Christians and all nations believe in same sex and gay marriage. God does not approve of it and says it is an abomination. Man shall not lay with man and woman should not lay with woman. Nor shall a man wear thing that are of a woman and. A woman should not wear things that are of a man. This is why God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah. Remember the men wanted to sleep with the Angels of God.

5: The Most High is against abortions the killing of innocent children. The Most High know them before the enter the womb he is the creator.

6: Everyone worships false images of the messiah. The false messiah are the images that you see today on TV movies and in churches, your crucifix. Again the devil has again deceived and conditioned everyone into believing that the Messiah that they are praising is the true living son of The Most High. If the devil job is to deceive everyone. Then you should believe that he has brainwashed everyone and purposely change the image of the Messiah and his apostles. He has followers just as Christ has followers. Sorry the Messiah is black the book of revelations tells you this along with other scriptures. Remember when God told Joseph to take Mary and Jesus and go hide in Egypt; Remember that Egypt was still ruled by the sons of Ham. Sons of were black like the children of Israel. Cause when the Hebrews son of Shem and son of Ham mourned together over the death of Joseph, they could not be set apart from each other cause they looked identical.

7: America is the daughter of Babylon. And it is not mighty, it can fall like other nations. It is the last dominate ruling kingdom before the coming of Christ.

Repent Everyone for the coming our Lord Christ is near. You cannot deny all the signs and warnings he been showing u. The tribulation is upon us, God has sent his judgement. All nations must pray and repent. God is going to turn his fists to all nations that has turned away from him. The time of the gentiles is coming to an end.

Wake up true children of Zion the children of Israel, repent and come back to The Most High. Wake up children of the gentile nation repent and come to The Most High.

All nations must repent and seek Christ now.

The original Black Panther Party initiated some of the most profound progressive politics that emerged out of the Black community. The Black Panther Party set up coalitions working face-to-face with all our white radical friends, young Hispanics and Puerto Ricans of the Young Lords organization, young Mexican-American Chicano brothers and sisters with the Brown Berets and the Cesar Chavez farm labor movement. We also worked directly with AIM, the American Indian Movement. I’m just saying that that’s the kind of progressive “All Power To The People” politics we were all about. We crossed racial lines, ran our own organization without any intellectual or offbeat, abstract academic dictates. We refused to allow for that, because our concept and our method was putting theory into practice.

You can’t be outside of something that’s oppressing you. You have to get right into the middle of it, change its structure, change its direction, change the laws, change the policy to truly serve the empowerment of the people.

You have to remember those young Black Panther Party rank and file members, young students and others, put together a free ambulance program for the people. They put together a free health clinic with a free pharmacy program. They put together free breakfasts for children programs that served the people in those communities. This is what all chapters and branches did. This was not rhetoric; this was not talk. These were tangible programs.

What a lot of people forget is this is an important part of the real history of the Black Panther party.

Yes, we had a lot of shootouts and a lot of battles when the police attacked us, when the politicians would send their law enforcement agencies in on us. J. Edgar Hoover and the FBI where out to smash us, trying to terrorize us out of existence. They killed 29 of my people in this country, particularly in the year 1969. They attacked our offices, they attacked our homes and we vowed to defend ourselves. All we were doing was defending our Constitutional, democratic, civil, human right to exercise our political electoral community power to organize the people and serve the people.

All Power To All The People!

1For the LORD will have mercy on Jacob, and will yet choose Israel, and set them in their own land: and the strangers shall be joined with them, and they shall cleave to the house of Jacob.2And the people shall take them, and bring them to their place: and the house of Israel shall possess them in the land of the LORD for servants and handmaids: and they shall take them captives, whose captives they were; and they shall rule over their oppressors.

Triumphant Exultation over Babel

3And it shall come to pass in the day that the LORD shall give thee rest from thy sorrow, and from thy fear, and from the hard bondage wherein thou wast made to serve,

4That thou shalt take up this proverb against the king of Babylon, and say, How hath the oppressor ceased! the golden city ceased!

5The LORD hath broken the staff of the wicked, and the sceptre of the rulers, Isaiah 14.1-5.

It's going come a time when the 12 tribe's of Jacob shall be delivered from the 4 corners of the world. And all people will be will be our servants according to the bible. You so called Black's, West Indians blacks, Haitians, Puerto Ricans, Cubans, Dominicans, Native American Indians, Seminole Indians, Guatemalan, Mayans, Incas, Mexican Argentina/Chile you are the chosen children of Israel according Genesis 49. Repent and return to your heritage return to the commandments of the Most High.Please understand this only 1/3 of the 12 tribe's will survive when the Most High drop the hammer on America and the rest of the world you are the chosen wake-up the word of the Most High was only meant for the 12 tribe's of Israel wrote by Hebrew for the Hebrews if your father comes from any of these tribe's then you are chosen. You people will not believe but it's the truth. 6For thou art an holy people unto the LORD thy God: the LORD thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto himself, above all people that are upon the face of the earth.

7The LORD did not set his love upon you, nor choose you, because ye were more in number than any people; for yewere the fewest of all people: 8But because the LORD loved you, and because he would keep the oath which he had sworn unto your fathers, hath the LORD brought you out with a mighty hand, and redeemed you out of the house of bondmen, from the hand of Pharaoh king of Egypt. Deu.7.6-8. I'm not a racist because I speak the truth according to the bible you Edomites and the rest of the nation's if you are not of the 12 tribe's of Israel according to the bible you are going into a righteous slavery, I know this is hard for you to believe because you pastors and teachers have mislead you and because of your pride, your pride blinds you from the truth, the only way out for you is to start cleaving to the 12 tribe's of Israel turn to the commandments of the Most High.A righteous captivity is far more better than death.

TODAY MARKS THE 521 ANNIVERSARY OF THE DISCOVERY OF 
BORIKEN (PUERTO RICO) by Christopher Columbus! The contributions of the US Territory of Puerto Rico to the forming of the USA are many--- US Hispanic/ Puerto Rican Heritage (part of roots/linage) dates back to the discovery/ initial settlement of the United States! US President Reagan said:
"Through the years, Hispanic American citizens have risen to the call of duty in defense of liberty and freedom. Their bravery is well known and has been demonstrated time and again, dating back to the aid rendered by General Bernardo de Galvez during the American Revolution".
Christopher Columbus discovered the Western Hemisphere on 12 October 1492 (San Salvador); during his 2d Trip he discovered Puerto Rico (Borinken-19 November 1493)named it San Juan Bautista…, But, in his four trips he never touched the continental land mass of the now USA.
Juan Ponce de León (1st Governor of Puerto Rico)--in March 1513, organized an expedition (from the now US Territory of Puerto Rico), and with his Crew (including Blacks, Women…) set sail to find what the Natives called Bimini…
• *In the spring of 1513 (April 2) they arrived at a beautiful verdant land which was named “La Florida”… (This dangerous voyage into the unknown put Florida on the Map for others to follow…)
• Puerto Rico was the historic 1st gateway to the European settlement of Florida-which opened the doors to the advanced civilized settlement of the USA--107 years before the Pilgrims landed…
These Spanish US Hispanic Ancestors (part of Hispanic linage, roots, heritage…)—Made many positive contributions…overtime brought Christianity, horses, cattle, sheep, pigs, oranges, the Spanish language, and other good things to America (the name set by Hispanic/European Ancestors). They complemented the worthy contributions of Natives and Others in the forming of the now USA.
1508/1521 Ponce de Leon founded “Caparra” the first settlement in Puerto Rico, but, in 1509 it was moved… to what today is San Juan (where he is buried)—the oldest City under the US Flag…
1565: St. Augustine (Oldest City North America) was founded by: Spanish Admiral Pedro Menendez…
1776-: Puerto Ricans, Mexicans, Cubans-US Hispanics-supported the US Continental Army, and fought (for our USA) in the Revolutionary War! General Galvez (Governor of Louisiana-now 13 US States), and General Castro (later Governor of Puerto Rico) bravely fought, against the British, in the important Battles of Pensacola (Florida), Louisiana, Missouri, and others…helping General Washington/ the Minutemen Citizen Soldiers win the War.
*US Hispanic Ancestors (Roots/Linage/Heritage) settled what is today California, Texas, Florida, Louisiana (includes now 14 US States) before “James Town” or the Pilgrims…
*Many Flags have flown over Florida: Spanish, British, French, Florida … & now our great USA Flag!
US Puerto Ricans are the 2d largest loyal US Hispanic Ethnic segment of our great USA Population whose PR Natives (the Tainos), thousands of years ago, left traces in the now US (Georgia)….; have fought since the War of Independence for the USA..., but, suffer *US Citizenship discrimination…
***After, 500+ years, let’s not forget the courageous US Hispanic Ancestors/Explorers legacy that brought advance civilization (of the times); good things to our USA. Also, let’s acknowledge the hard work of Natives/ Immigrants, before & after this milestone; work together for the good of all: Family, Community, Florida, USA, and Humanity!
There is one Race-The Human Race—with beautiful skin pigments!
Judge on Merit based on fair opportunity-a level playing field!
*1898: US invades PR-It becomes a US Territory under the will of Congress/ trite un-democratic Territorial Clause. But, Puerto Ricans loyally serve, sacrifice, bleed & bravely fight to help defend our USA/US Constitution (includes WW-I, WW-II, Korea, Vietnam, World War on Terrorism)…The US 65th Infantry Regiment-The Borinqueneers (recipients of the Congressional Gold Medal)-- set the example.
*1917: US Congress imposes a statutory (un-permanent) 2d Class US Citizenship--where loyal US Citizens/ US Veterans have no Federal Vote or Just Representation in the Congress that determines their final destiny.(Congress can discriminate in applying US Constitution to PR, per “Insular Cases” biased Constitution interpretations...)
*1952: US Congress allows PR a Territory Constitution/ local Government with broad Powers (almost like a State) but, still under the Territorial Clause—will of Congress with no just representation… till this date.
