IN THE BOOK OF MATTHEW CHAPTER 25.

How would your life change if you actually thought of each person you came into contact with as Jesus Christ😳?

~The street child who've been begging you at that very spot of the street 😳?
~The sick at Kenyatta National Hospital or any other hospital 😳?
~The orphans and vulnerable children who can't afford tuition and food 😳?


In Matthew 25 Jesus blesses some people for what they have done. Confused, they ask, “Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you something to drink? When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?”

His answer is staggering: “The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.’”

Jesus is saying that we show tangible love for God in how we care for the poor and those who are suffering. He expects us to treat the poor and the desperate as if they were Christ Himself.

* Do you treat the people you interact with in a daily basis as though they were Christ?

Do you look out for the “least of these” to your own detriment?

How can you begin to rewire your heart and brain in order to see these opportunities to share Christ’s love?

Don't ever forget that the world needs Love,God is Love,the world therefore needs God. You must now share God by loving your neighbors unconditionally.

Have a blessed day🤣🤣

Trump’s Immigration Ban: Who Is Barred
and Who Is Not.

The administration on Tuesday issued additional guidance on how President Trump’s executive order should be implemented.

A wide array of people are affected by the order, which bars for 90 days people from seven predominantly Muslim countries from entering the United States: Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria and Yemen. It also bans all refugees for 120 days, and Syrian refugees indefinitely.

After a review of the screening process, the order says officials may give recommendations for indefinite bans. Other countries may be added to the list as well.

BARRED
Visitors, Students and Workers
There were more than 86,000 nonimmigrant, temporary visits by citizens from these countries in the 2015 fiscal year, including:

Visitors, business travelers
67,669 entries in 2015
People visiting the U.S. for recreational or business purposes on non-immigrant travel visas like B-1 or B-2.

Students
14,135 entries in 2015
International students (and their families) enrolled in U.S. programs on non-immigrant visas like F-1, J-1 and M-1.

Temporary workers
1,005 entries in 2015
Employees (and their families) on non-immigrant work visas like H-1B for specialty workers and H-2B for agricultural workers.

Fiancés of U.S. citizens
772 entries in 2015
Temporary visas for fiancés of U.S. citizens and for spouses and children of U.S. citizens or green card holders who have pending immigrant visas.

The ban affects people who are currently in the United States on temporary visas who would normally be allowed to travel to their home country and re-enter the United States, like students. According to the Institute of International Education, 17,354 international students from the seven countries were enrolled in American institutions during the 2015-16 school year.

BARRED
New Immigrants
The ban also affects people newly arriving on immigrant visas, which are issued based on employment or family status. People issued immigrant visas become legal permanent residents upon arrival in the United States and are issued a green card soon after.

In 2015, green cards were issued to 52,365 people from these seven countries. In general, about half of recent new legal permanent residents are new arrivals to the country, and the other half had their status adjusted after living in the United States.

BARRED
Refugees
The ban on all refugees to the United States is set at 120 days. Syrian refugees, who made up the second largest group of refugees to the United States in 2016, are barred indefinitely.

The order allows exceptions for refugees in minority religious groups and for those already in transit for whom a denial would cause undue hardship, or in line with pre-existing international agreements. The administration on Tuesday said that about 900 refugees would being processed this week for waivers because of hardship concerns. According to a State Department spokesperson, this group does not include individuals from Iran, Iraq, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria or Yemen.

When the refugee program is reinstated, refugees in minority religious groups will be prioritized for acceptance. Although the order does not explicitly mention Christians as a minority religion that will be given preference, Mr. Trump said that was what he intended.


CASE-BY-CASE
Green Card Holders and Special Immigrants
The order states that the secretaries of State and Homeland Security may issue visas on a case-by-case basis when it is in the national interest.

After initial confusion over whether Mr. Trump’s order applied to green card holders, the administration said in a memo on Sunday that they would be allowed to board airplanes headed to the United States. The memo said that they would be assessed upon arrival, and that “swift entry” would be expected.

From 1999 to 2015, 3.6 percent of new legal permanent residents were from the seven affected countries.

Iraqis who worked for the United States government or served as translators or interpreters for the military and had been approved for special immigrant visas (SIVs) will also be allowed to board planes and be processed for a waiver upon arrival. It was initially unclear whether the ban affected these visas.

ALLOWED
Dual Nationals and Diplomats
The ban does not apply to some groups, including U.S. citizens and dual nationals who enter the United States presenting their passport from a country not under the ban. There was initially confusion over how these people would be affected, though the White House had told the governments of Canada and Britain that their citizens who were dual nationals of one of the seven countries would not be barred.

People on certain types of diplomatic or government visas are also exempted from the ban. Nearly 2,500 admissions from these countries were made on these visas in 2015:

Diplomats
Diplomats (and their families) on visas like A-1

Government officials
Representatives of foreign governments or international organizations holding G-1, G-2, G-3 or G-4 visas

Visitors to the United Nations
People with C-2 visas to travel to the United Nations

NATO officials
Officials (and their families) on North Atlantic Treaty Organization visas

The Light in the Dark Times (Word of the Week)

Did Jesus suffer? Was he sometimes lonely? Was he tempted to be discouraged? Was he misunderstood, maligned, and criticized unjustly?

Of course! None of us are exempt from suffering, loneliness, discouragement, or unjust criticism, because God is developing within us the character of Christ, and, in order to do this, he must take us through all of the circumstances in life through which he took Christ.

Does this mean God causes tragedies? No. God is good, and he will not cause evil or do evil. But God can use dark and stressful times for good. He'll use them to teach us to trust him, to show us how to help others, and to draw us closer to other believers.

The Bible says in 2 Corinthians 4:8b-9,

"We were crushed and overwhelmed beyond our ability to endure, and we thought we would never live through it. In fact, we expected to die. But as a result, we stopped relying on ourselves and learned to rely only on God, who raises the dead” (NLT).

So, what should you do when you’re going through difficult times 😳?

~First, you refuse to be discouraged. 😳
~Then, you remember God is with you. 😳
~Finally, you rely on God’s protection and guidance. 😳

We all go through difficult times. The difference for those who believe in Jesus is not the absence of the shadow but the presence of the Light😊🙏

Stop Thinking with your predicament,trouble,poverty,tribe,class
Start thinking HEAVENLY...it's the only way out.

Have a blessed week ahead.

Police brutality and violation of human rights in the United States is a troubling especially to people who are taking action to protect natural resources and ancestral territory in the face of profit-seeking capitalist.

The excessive use of instruments of suppression (State security apparatus) to suppress protest against Capitalist activities that are alleged to violate human rights is wrong and contrary to the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.

The Native American People feel that their concerns are being ignored, and it is their right to stage peaceful assemblies so that these concerns can be heard.

The United States Government has an obligation to actively protect that right. The rights of cultural heritage defenders have to be respected and protected.

The right to freedom of peaceful assembly is an individual right, and it cannot be taken away indiscriminately or en masse due to the violent actions of a few.

This is the State of the Nation from Washington DC.

WRITING THE LAST CHAPTER : PLEA TO RESCUE ALEPPO BY THE INTERNATIONAL COMMUNITY

The Aleppo disaster demands bold action, including limiting the use of veto by permanent members of the Security Council.

Since 21 September hundreds of civilians have been killed, including at least 100 children.

I wish to remind parties to the conflict that they must strictly adhere to international humanitarian law,Let us not forget that the destruction of cities like Warsaw, Stalingrad and Dresden, and the horror inflicted upon their civilians contributed to a great extent to the foundation of the United Nations.

We as the inhabitants of planet earth cannot afford to fail Aleppo. We cannot afford to continue to fail the thousands of children trapped in this city awaiting their slaughter.

Do something.....do something...😳 😳 😳

Dear Sir,

RE:RESPONSIBILITY TO PROTECT ALEPPO

The continuing onslaught by the Syrian Government and its allies which is killing and maiming children in areas of eastern Aleppo is a brutal abdication of the international human rights obligations they have committed including your government,to respect.

“Syria and Russia have both ratified the Convention on the Rights of the Child. In addition, they have ratified the Optional Protocol on the involvement of children in armed conflict,”

This doesn’t solely mean not recruiting and/or using child soldiers. It means not targeting children in situations of armed conflict; it means not attacking places, such as schools and hospitals, which might amount to war crimes under international humanitarian law.

Yet in eastern Aleppo, this is what we are seeing and we are silent. What is the role of a super power in the global Political Economy? Because Children are being killed and maimed. Airstrikes are hitting the few remaining hospitals. The use of bunker-busting bombs means children cannot even safely attend schools that are underground.

Barry,Even if the war were to end today, it will take decades to recover from the destruction wrought on Aleppo and across Syria and the psychological wounds to heal from the trauma inflicted on these children. We are probably not talking of a lost generation, but quite possibly of lost generations,

“The stunned, bloodied face of five-year-old Omran Daqneesh sitting in an ambulance after being pulled from the rubble horrified me very much and I believe the the world too not least because it showed that war is all this child has known in his short life. What else do you require Mr. President to end this massacre? Money? Bribe? Love? What else do you need Mr. President?

Yes I am not an expert in human rights but my system of Education brought to my conscious the Convention on the Rights of the Child has been ratified by 196 States and the Optional Protocol (OPAC) by 165. I believe United States is one of those countries.

Yes,I am in Africa,very far away from Aleppo,but I can't just sit and do nothing.

I therefore call on your country the United States,Germany,United Kingdom,France,African Union,Syria and Russia, as well the international community, to show they abide by their human rights obligations set out in those treaties and find a way to end this raging conflict NOW MR. PRESIDENT. That child Omran must not be an adolescent or even a young adult before he knows what peace is.

IN AFRICA,WE DON'T BEG. BECAUSE WE'VE SEEN THE UGLY FACE OF CONFLICT.

Before Secret Service and FBI knocked my door,good bye.

The global Political Economy is a skewed system. The winner is already pre-determined. Therefore, the assumption that you can compete fairly and win or be given instruments of power is fallacious and will remain a myth in the Black African Continent. IN AFRICA,POWER IS NOT GIVEN,POWER IS TAKEN.

The new President of the Supreme Court of Kenya and the Chief Justice is already known. The interview and the recruitment process you are witnessing is only meant to entertain the crowd.

The guiding principle is to award a "friendly individual who can be manipulated " especially incase of election Petition considering the difficulty of achieving the minimum constitutional threshold of 50+1 votes to be declared the winner in a presidential election in 2017.

Note that : Opinion is sharply divided on this matter,I don't claim monopoly of knowledge,therefore my assumption is debatable.
I have also not mention any candidate preferred by the status quo.

THIS IS THE STATE OF THE NATION.
GOOD MORNING AFRICA........
