Creator of #OscarsSoWhite isn’t taking credit for this year’s historic wins

  • For an awards ceremony that’s been rightfully derided in recent years for refusing to acknowledge the work of artists of color, Sunday night’s show was an important step in the right direction.
  • But April Reign, the woman who coined the phrase #OscarsSoWhite, the hashtag that encapsulated that criticism, isn’t taking all the credit.
  • She’s underscoring an important point. #OscarsSoWhite highlighted an enduring problem in Hollywood, namely that filmmakers and actors of color weren’t recognized for their achievements by the industry at large. 
  • That fed into a lack of representation that has real consequences, ranging from young kids’ self-esteem to policy making
  • But at its very core, the goal of diversifying representation in Hollywood is to allow the work of artists of color to be judged on the same platform as white people’s art. 
  • In the case of Moonlight’s wins, it shows that the stories of black boys are important and worthy of being told. And in this political climate, that’s more important than ever. Read more (2/27/17 9:13 AM)

Today I watched Don Stewart give his 2014 Prophecy update and I took notes and I wanted to share this with all of you.


  • This happened on May 15, 1948 when Israel became a nation.  It was totally complete in 1967 during the 6 day war when they took Jerusalem back.


  • We know that there will be a third temple because the Bible tells us so.  It tells us in Matthew 24:15, Daniel 9:27, and Revelation 13:14. The Bible tells us that after the Abomination of desolation those who are alive and remain during the tribulation should be watchful and recognize that this event is the beginning of 3 ½ years of the worst of the tribulation period and that the return of the Lord Jesus in the Second Coming is imminent. Today they have the blueprints made for the third temple and they say that they can have this Third Temple up and performing sacrifices in 8 months. They also have all of the implements that they need to run the temple.



These nations will have a military coalition.  This coalition will want to bring forth the destruction of Israel and its people.  All of the nations listed want the annihilation of Israel and its people the Jews right now.  



  •  Syria – They are not a threat because they are in the middle of a  civil war.
  •  Egypt – they also had a civil war and there is much unrest.
  •  Lebanon – Civil unrest and terrorism.
  •  Jordan – A peaceful nation with a small military and strong ties o  western nations.

There are some nations mentioned in Ezekiel that are not a part of the invading force, that protest what is going on.  These nations are:

Sheba – (Saudi Arabia) and Dedan – Gulf States.  They, like Israel fear Iran them getting a nuclear bomb and using it on Israel and continuing south to Saudi Arabia.  If you are thinking that they should be allies with Iran because they are both Muslims think again.  The Saudis are Sunni Muslims and Iranians are Shia Muslims.  The Sunni’s do not believe that the Shia are proper Muslims and they have been known to fight and even kill each other over their differences.


  • The United States has all but turned its back on Israel.  We are a country who is downsizing its military and is not interested in fighting in a war. NO BOOTS ON THE
  • GROUND.  We are seeing this happen right before our eyes.  The prestige that the United States once had is dwindling and we are no longer considered a superpower by the nations of the world. I couldn’t help but remember what the Bible says about people who bless Israel.

And I will bless those who bless you, And the one who curses you I will curse. And in you all the families of the earth will be blessed.“  Genesis 12:3



  • Everyone will be looking for a leader and this will be the opening for a man to come on the scene and take charge.  This will be the Antichrist.  He will be a political leader and a Gentile coming out of the old Roman Empire.  This man will seem to have all of the answers that people are seeking.  The Bible says that he will a mouth speaking great things.  He will make everyone trust him and he will rule the world.


  • Today our technology has gotten so sophisticated that the Anti-Christ would be able to monitor everyone in the world.  He will force everyone to take his mark 666, his name, mark or number on their right hand or forehead and worship him. If they do not have this mark they will not be able to buy or sell anything.  I think that the technology that he will have will be amazing and what we are using in our world today is a pre-cursor to what they will use during the Tribulation.  This could have never happened even 25 years ago.  Here is a Scripture that I love:


FOR THE HEART OF THIS PEOPLE HAS BECOME DULL, WITH THEIR EARS THEY SCARCELY HEAR, AND THEY HAVE CLOSED THEIR EYES, OTHERWISE THEY WOULD SEE WITH THEIR EYES, HEAR WITH THEIR EARS, AND UNDERSTAND WITH THEIR HEART AND RETURN, AND I WOULD HEAL THEM.’ 16"But blessed are your eyes, because they see; and your ears, because they hear. 17"For truly I say to you that many prophets and righteous men desired to see what you see, and did not see it, and to hear what you hear, and did not hear it. Matthew 13:15-17


God created us in His own image so we can know Him personally and have a joy-filled life. He did not make us as robots to automatically love and obey Him, but gave us a will and a freedom of choice. Since the beginning of time, we have chosen to disobey God and go our own willful way. We still make this choice today. This results in separation from God and ends in misery. The Bible says that disobeying God results in being separated from Him.  Our attempts can never unite us with God. Through the ages, people have tried many ways to bridge this gap and reach God – without success.  I believe that each one of us has a little puzzle piece in each of our bodies that only the love of God can fill.  We try to fill it with all kinds of things like sex, boyfriends, children, drugs, alcohol, education, clubbing, partying and everything else that you can think of.  The thing is nothing fits right in there.  Only God can quench the longing of your soul.

3 Jesus replied, “Very truly I tell you, no one can see the kingdom of God unless they are born again.” 4 “How can someone be born when they are old?” Nicodemus asked. “Surely they cannot enter a second into their mother’s womb to be born!” 5 Jesus answered, “Very truly I tell you, no one can enter the kingdom of God unless they are born of water and the Spirit. 6 Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. John 3:3-6

If you want a new life in Christ Jesus, ask Him into your heart today. Simply pray this: Lord Jesus Christ, I believe that You took the pain and the sins of world on the cross to give me new life. I ask You to come into my heart and to give me Your peace and joy. I confess that I am a sinner that I have gone my own way and have done wrong. Please forgive me for my sins. I receive You now as my Lord and Savior. Today I come home. Please fill me with Your Holy Spirit. Help me to follow You and to serve You all the days of my life. Thank you so much for loving me and forgiving me, in Jesus name I pray, Amen. If you prayed that prayer you are a new creature in Christ Jesus! You are Born Again!  I urge you to start reading the Bible in the Gospel of John and get into a really good Bible based church.  If you need help finding one I will be happy to help you.  God bless you!!!  Maranatha!!!


anonymous asked:

how do u afford all your clothes?? im a broke college student with like no credit. is it some big blog secret? lmfaooo

Haha it’s easier than you think! And no, it’s not just the big blogs. I’ve been doing the same thing since I’ve had around 1.2k (I now have over 25k) after my friend introduced me :) there are two things involved:

Earning money online - There are lots of ways, but I use:

  • My favourite survey site ~ You just have to complete surveys about the things you enjoy (food, shopping, lifestyle, etc.) and accumulate earnings through tasks!
  • This site doesn’t work in all countries, but you can also sign up at MySurvey (with a good payout rate of $25-70 per week):
  • Feature Points ~ All I have to do is download apps, earn points, and redeem the points for rewards: Paypal credit, Amazon/Starbucks gift cards, etc. Plus, I used the code 8HR5KC to get 50 bonus points

Finding the right stores - You can shop at H&M, Abercrombie, AA, whatever you want. Or, you can buy the clothes directly from online manufacturers WITHOUT retail pricetags

one $18two $11three $18four $14five $12

six $38seven $14eight $13nine $27ten $13eleven $9

Cuando te sientas vacío(a) recuerda:
  • Dios te llena de amor: Efesios 3:19
  • Dios te llena de paz: Filipenses 4:7
  • Dios te llena de gozo: Romanos 15:13
  • Dios te llena de fuerzas: Isaías 40:29
  • Dios te llena de luz: Romanos 36:9
  • Dios te llena de conocimento: Efesios 1:17
  • Dios te llena de libertad: Gálatas 5:1
  • Dios te llena de vida: Romanos 8:2
  • Dios te llena de fe: Gálatas 3:26-27
  • No tienes que vivir sintiéndote vacío porque Jesús murió para llenarte de todas sus bendiciones. Todo lo que necesitas esta en Él. Busca a Jehová y nunca más te sentirás vacío.
  • Jesús les dijo: Yo soy el pan de vida; el que a mí viene, no tendrá hambre; y el que en mí cree, no tendra sed jamás.
  • Juan 6.35
