Will You? God Will

All through my ChristiaImagen walk I have seen His hand in many aspects of the lives of my friends and even personally. Many things I just can not explain how God did it but He did and He does.One case in point was a very bad auto accident was in with my freshly repainted and restored 1979 Ford Fiesta. The fireman said that if it had not been for the sunroof more than likely I would have died as my head was sticking out of a collapsed sunroof. (see photo) Thus I like the phrase in Acts chapter one verse two where it reads “many infallible proofs” for that describes how God has demonstrated that He is indeed alive and not dead as many may say. But I am not here today to tell you about how I know He is real in my life. Instead I want to tell you that many times in life He uses people to get things done.

What I am about to share with you will tale the work of His people to get this task done, But before I tell you any more allow me to share with you a pictureImage. The house you see is a three bedroom two and a half bath home in what is registered as in Holly Michigan. Yet it lays less than  two miles from Faith City Church on Thompson Road. Now here is the story about this certain place:

Back about eight months ago I seen this house for sale and dismissed it as I would had rather had a nice ranch styled home. About a week ago a sister in the faith seen his very same house and believed that this is the house for me. I told her nothing about this location until she had her say. Then the question arose, why would God show me the house eight months ago and now again through someone else in the faith unless His hand was included in it.

Pardon me now but here is where the faith of those in the Christ Jesus needs to come into play: The cost of the house is a mere $200000 not including closing costs, taxes and so forth. Thus we are believing the Lord will come through with at least $300000 plus costs to buy needed furniture and cleanup costs of the barns and so forth. Fact of the matter is as follows. I do not have that kind of money laying about in any bank or even in my wallet, neither does any of my friends in the faith. However God does have such funds and even more to cap it off.  This would be the ideal location  for Thunderdome Ministries Network Inc to help Christian men in need of temporary housing.

With all the above said I wonder if you have the faith to see this as not only my first house but a place where the work of the Lord could proceed as God sees fit. Mind you this is less than two miles from the church and out in the country.. This would make it very hard for any person to reach out to ones past. Instead it would allow a person a fresh start, a second chance if you will. After all how many second chances has God given to you and members on your family? Thus the question is as follows: will you be a part of a ministry that desires to help people? Will you reach out and touch the hands of someone you don’t even know? Will you perhaps even go as far as becoming a sponsor?

I am not asking you for a million dollars, not even ten thousand dollars to help buy this house lock stock and barrel. Making it a debt free piece of property. However I am asking you to give as the Holy Spirit leads you in order to make this all reality.

If you feel the leading for the Lord to help the Paypay donate button is for your use below. Remember this: the very same God who has not only given me and you a second chance in life wants to do so in the lives of others. So, beloved will you help “the least of these” or will you turn your back in defiance?

Remember that the ministry can not proceed and nor will a roof be over my own  head unless a house is bought. Thus this is a critical step in both the future of the ministry and for me as a person.

Felons: The New Minority

Lets just say for a moment you did a crime against society and you were sentenced to do time in prison You do your time and are released. Thus you are a free man or women or are you?                                                                                                            007

It seems that somewhere in time society has been allowed to discriminate  people with felony convictions. Thus society has created a new minority and it comes I believe strait from those in Washington DC and filtered down to the common folk known as J.Q. Public.

Don’t believe me? With the invention/discovery of the World Wide Web came also the discovery of background checks. It started out for the public to see who was living next door and around the corner. Now it has filtered into not only the work place but also housing units including what is known as Low Income or Section 8 Housing. To  top it off any person with a felony can not gain access to Section 8 Housing for the remainder of his or her life.  Thus any person, and I mean it could be your very own son or daughter, could never obtain a roof of their head unless s/he obtains help from a friend.

Is this fair to any person who has a felony record? Some may think so but it is not and it needs to stop before someone gets hurt or dies.

Are people with felonies being discriminated? The answer is yes. And now society has another case of Martin Luther King.  Rosa Parks and so forth. And thus, things need to change very quickly before it becomes to late for someone, somewhere.  What could happen you ask? Lets say a person with a felony conviction were disabled in one form or another. He or she very well may be taking medications and is seen by he doctor on regular basis. His one problem may not be getting to the doctors or to the pharmacy but where s/he could live in peace and without fear of reprisal. Thus. s/he needs to get into a low income housing unit but how to do so in this society?

There may be an answer and it comes from the very goal and vision of Thunderdome Ministry itself; A Christian campus that would serve as a halfway home for former inmates. I am not talking about dorms but actual houses very similar to the very one you may be living in at this point in time. Start up costs would run into the double digits and better. Perhaps  a more exacting projection would be around fifty million dollars. This would bring in the buying of 100 acres and building 4 bedroom ranch styled houses and a chapel with a learning center and classrooms.

  • Are felons discriminated against? Yes and sometimes even by ministries sad to say.
  • Can it be stopped? Yes
  • Will he government help? Doubtful
  • Is there an answer? Yes
  • What is he answer? Jesus

In Gods Word we see Him  posed at a door knocking. What people need to do is to open the door and allow Him inside. This means both the rich and poor, sick and healthy. bond or free.  We  know he answer and it is Jesus, but will you open you door to help another?

Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave the drink?  When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?  Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

Matthew 25: 34-40

My question to you is as follows:  will you help those Jesus called he least of these? Or will you sit on the sidelines and watch?

IF you desire to assist text me a 1-248-295-1365 and ask for my mailing address where you can send in your support.

Remember, they need the help of the very elect of Christ to keep from returning to prison.

Are felons discriminated? Yes,God forbid

. Is there hope ? Yes

Yours in Jesus

Updates

It’s not often that yours truly pens an update but since I don’t do so I figured  that my followers deserved such. So i you will bear with me I will proceed making his as brief as possible.

Thunderdome Ministries update

As you may know I moved the website over to Weebly dot-com and combined it with Littlethunders Castle. This has saved time when it comes to doing any editing or adding content. Another reasons was that http://www.webs.com stopped allowing users access of usage of the html modules. Many people have left http://www.webs.com over this and I am one of them.

As far as ministry as a whole goes? There is a bright side as the ministry was given a much-needed printer. And I welcome the addition  indeed. As for the future of the ministry? Financially speaking I still have to pull money out of my own pocket to meet its various needs as the ministry has not obtained any sponsors. Thankfully the only real costs is that of the domain name and even that will cease due to its costs. And of course the lack of funding prevents the ministry from obtaining a much-needed campus to helping Christians in need of temporary housing.

Personal Update

As you may know already,  yours truly is on disability and will never be allowed to work again  this has various ramifications in its self and allow me to explain.

  • My Asus G60 needs a new keyboard and maybe some other work.
  • Obtaining a new place to live is nearly impossible. What I receive per month is not enough to pay rent on an apartment nor that to make house payments.
  • Sometimes my 2007 Dodge Caliber needs work and it either has to wait or it does not get done.

All in all between me and the Lord we are doing pretty well and like every human on this planet there are problems that only HE can take care of. Yes I believe in God and His Word,  for me there are many proofs that He is indeed real.

  • Do I need help  with housing right in the here and now? The answer is a big surrounding yes. I am in need of at least a 2-3 bedroom ranch styled house, with basement and garage with large lot/50 acres in the Holly or Fenton Michigan area all debt free. This would take me out of my present situation and help with various health issues. Can God provide? Indeed He can. All it takes is one or two individuals who hear His voice to make it become reality. (BTW…God would need to provide the furniture for my “man cave” as i have no furniture as well.)
  • AS far as Littlethunders Castle? a new page was added yesterday  titled Littlethunders Bucket List. I hope you will check it out soon.

From the humble beginnings of Thunderdome Ministry there was an honest desire to move forward in helping Christians coming out of prison life to re-adjust to a different form of society.  After many years, prayer and tears I have found that the ones Jesus classified as  “the least of these” just was not receiving proper sponsorship to build a  proper campus. Truth of the matter is this, not one red cent was ever received towards this goal. Was it an over reach? Was it the hardness of the heart that it never bore fruit? I frankly am unsure but after all this time it is time to move onward and pray that someone else with take up the cause.

The New Mission

The new mission is as follows, thus leaving the old one behind.

Due to recent events in my own life it has come to my attention that there are Christians who are or could be going through what I went through. Being virtually homeless while waiting to buy a home.  It is not easy living virtually hand to mouth relying on friends and wondering where your next meal is coming from.

It is not your fault that the process in buying a house is slow. It is after all a matter of crossing the T’s and dotting the I’s making sure nothing come back to bite you at a later date. Thus here is the vision. or goal if you please:

Build and or buy a house or two where a single Christian can live up to six months out of a year while in the process of buying a house. As he was under the roof of Thunderdome Ministries he would /could continue working at his place of employment.  He would be required to pay rent and help offset the cost of food provided. He would.. be required to attend daily devotions and attend church. As a Christian home of course there would be no smoking, drinking or doing illegal  drugs on or off property.  Many people want to own a home of their own instead of renting apartments or renting rooms. Thus, this vision, this goal is truly workable. All that is needed are sponsors to help proceed in obtaining the right house to begin the program. There is a side note to this: unlike low income housing where they undergo background checks this program will not consist of such. Thus if a Christian did time behind bars  and has been released then s/he has paid his debt to society and has a clean slate.

If the above  vision sounds right and proper and you would like to help in this project an email will be furnished below where you can obtain the address where you can send forth your sponsorship fund**

Always remember the story of  what transpired in the early church when a husband and wife held back from the Lord. Read Acts 4:34-5:37 they paid a terrible price for their desires. Please do not make the same mistake as they did.

For information on where you can send your sponsorship dollars please contact the following aniart106

May God richly bless you as you bless others in this project of importance.

Look Who is Back

I am truly sorry I have not been around for the last few months. Much of that is highly due to my housing situation. At one point I was forced to either live out of my car or stay with a friend. In either case my only access to the world wide web was through my LG smart phone.

At present I am renting a room from my friend who has a house in Pontiac Michigan. Lord willing and the river does not rise I should be here until at least February or March of next year. Or until I am moved into my very first house of my own.

In previous blogs I made mention of decorating a website to fit the holidays such as Thanksgiving and Christmas. I was unable to do this as having even a smartphone has its limitations. And the ability to use html coding is one of them.

Now at least you, the reader have something to read and there will be more to come. Simply give me time to et use to being back on the world wide web and I shall inform you of perhaps some interesting tales. And those tales are up and coming I can insure you of that.

Thanks a bunch for your understanding  and I will pen more soon

A Change Is Coming

First  allow me to say that the appearance of this blog was slightly overdue for some changes. If you remember in a previous entry I mentioned that whenever you create a website or blog make it so you like the looks.   Since this blog was over due for a change I stayed with a clean-cut look.

There is another reason why this changed and as long as everything rempraying-hands_thumb.jpgains a double thumbs up I will be able to share it with you very soon. The news is rather big so I still need your prayers to its successful end. Now because this big change is about to transpire I just may not have all the time I want to pen a long blog entry as i will be rather busy for a while.

To keep you on your toes  the following is a listing of all the websites and such that I use almost on a daily basis:

Thank you for stopping by today and for your prayers of support.

Can you guess what change is coming down the road?

Updates October 6 2013

Before I give you all the latest allow me to say that this entry will serve on several fronts. If you get bored and want to leave I understand many people only want to hear about exciting things that will tingle their senses. However, if you read onward maybe, just maybe you will find something that will spark your interest. And now that that is out of the way let us move onward.

#1. Thunderdome Ministries Network Inc.   is undergoing some changes in the realm of reality. At present we are seeking a piece of property with at least four bedrooms in the Fenton Michigan area to begin the first phase of having an after care place for Christians coming out of at this time Michigan prison. Once at the location he will have a much needed roof over his head and Christian education. On top of it all the person will also work on the property.   The ministry has come to the understanding that while we have a vision for the large there is a need to  start small. Exiting prison life is tough and there are many in society who are hostile but here is the thing; they are people too who deserve a second chance on this planet just like God gave you a second and third chance.  Thus Thunderdome Ministries Network needs your support not just prayerfully but in other areas as well.  For more information on the vision of the ministry please o to the website at www.thunderdomeministries.net and click on the tab Vision.

#2. This writer has created a brand new website simply titled It Only Makes Cents  and at this point it has only two pages;  #1..A listing of all the websites where a person like yourself can earn a few dollars on the world wide web  #2  a Cell Phone Forum   and you can tell the world about your cellphone, service and so forth. Will you help make this a popular forum? I truly hope you will.

#3. On a personal note:  over the last few weeks I have been living out of a suitcase and nearly out of my car due to the fact that the landlord wants me moved out by noon October 15 2013. Now I have earnestly attempted to move into a nice place but regretfully that was denied. Thus the press is on.  After said date I frankly do not know if I will have internet access that would able yours truly to pen these entries. Frankly I truly desire your prayers and action as I still attempt to move closer to my home church in Fenton Michigan named Faith City.  

Thank you for your time and for reading this far into this entry. It is my hope and prayer that I will pen many more in the days and months ahead.
