Dr. Martin Luther King Jr Ebenezer Baptist​ Church, Atlanta GA

IMG_1892I want to give an Honor to God who is ahead of my life and God bless everyone in their respective places. I am so excited to have visited Ebenezer Baptist Church the very exact church Dr. Martin Luther King Jr preached at under the leadership of the Williams and King families. The focus of their church was food, shelter, and health needs. During the civil rights movement in the 50’s and 60’s Ebenezer gained global exposure for education, voter registration, and other civic reforms.

Rev. King Sr. father of Dr. King Jr. loved his family and his church home the same love he gave his children he gave his membership.

This church has significant value and this is where King’s grandfather and father have served as pastors during the 1960’s, Dr. King severed as co-pastor, and after his assassination, King’s brother took over as co-pastor. Just like any other church that has activities, bible studies, meetings and more were led by King’s grandmother and mother. I can imagine what it is today only if the legacy is still being celebrated. The women of impact and influence that should come through and pay their respects. I mean I would invest and fly out to celebrate.

Annual Women’s Day hosted by Coretta Scott King will be celebrating its 55th year October 2017

I can’t believe I was standing in the church where Mama King was fatally shot in 1974 along with Deacon Edward Boykin and 3 others were wounded. My God, I pray for their families and loved ones. We have to pray for our churches and keep them covered.

The Sanctuary and Fellowship Hall has the exact same appearance it did in the 1960’s when you walk in the church there is audio of Dr. King speeches and sermons. I believe if you went there early enough you can pray over your seat and set back to listen to the exact words Dr. King has preached. I’m not sure if there’s a time limit to your visit but it closes at 5pm.

Everybody can be great, because everybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve… You don’t have to know Einstein’s theory of relativity to serve… You only need a heart full of grace, a soul generated by love. And you can be that servant. Martin Luther King Jr. “The Drum Major Instinct” sermon at Ebenezer Baptist Church, February 4, 1968

The biographical exhibits are breath-taking at the King Center this is the place I cried right before going into the Rosa Parks room. The King Center is where both the tombs of Dr. King and wife Mrs. Coretta Scott King are Reflecting.

Whenever you get the chance to come to Atlanta if you don’t already live in Atlanta I suggest you visit to get the full experience because my experience is not your experience. There are people in Atlanta who lived here for years and haven’t taken the time out. Let the Holy Spirit move you. All pictures are mine.

What’s In Your Travel Bag

Travel: My dream travel is to get away somewhere that will focus on body wellness I look for peace, relaxing, soothing, and rejuvenation. I have been inspired by many traveling ideas. One of my traveling highlights is to “study out the country” I look forward to an unforgettable week of writing and touring. I’m sure many writers can agree with blogging from “Bed” with “Breakfast” creating writing assignments for myself with a scent of fresh air can release tension. You’ll probably breath differently when you acknowledge your stress level and finding new ways to stretch. Stay encouraged by your mentors and offer mentorship to others that will help guide them with perfecting their craft as well as your own.

A Challenge to Demonstrate Power

1 Corinthians 4:20 For the kingdom of God is not in word based on talk, but in power

The Power Gifts

  • Miracles
  • Healing
  • Faith

The bible said the kingdom of God in not what you speak or how you speak it no matter what you preach on whether its something intelligent, smart, and fame, but do it in power. I’m calling you to preach in power whether you on social media or in the pulpit. You can have a good word, but what good is your words with no power. God want me, you, us, and whoever to operate in POWER.

With the power and authority I’m seeking I’m gonna have to call myself to a fast I pray my faith believe and stand in agreement. Whatever your reason is for fasting whether the circumstance is ugly, but the benefits is rewarding and exciting. Do it anyway.

DO YOU BELIEVE YOUR FAITH GIVES YOU POWER AND AUTHORITY?

Matthew 17:18 KJV And Jesus rebuked the devil; and he departed out of him: and the child was cured from that very hour.

19 Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out?

20 And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you.

21 Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.

That type of faith that can cast out unclean spirits. Don’t that excite you to know the level of authority we seek is according to the level of our faith? I want you to see it like this. Because of your level of faith because you didn’t believe it. Use your beliefs not an actual mustard seed. Some believers don’t know what it mean to have mustard seed faith and if he saying the disciples didn’t even have that. Who are you fooling? Go that extra mile even when you know you have that moving mountain faith that casting out unclean spirits faith.

One last thing some of us know our credit score. What if we knew our FAITH score? Would you need to build up your Faith?

The Crucifixion

Mark 15:24 Then the soldiers nailed him to the cross. They divided his clothes and threw dice to decide who would get each piece. 25 It was nine o’clock in the morning when they crucified him. 26 A sign announced the charge against him. It read, “The King of the Jews.” 27 Two revolutionaries were crucified with him, one on his right and one on his left.

Do you believe they threw dice to see who would get His clothes? Not the normal way to do things when you lose a loved one and divide their belongings. This scripture gets me all the time. I’m amazed and shocked each time I read the scripture. And in this day how did they play? Was it 456 / 7 11 craps, trips, traces you just don’t know. Can you imagine getting your life took for a dice game in that day. What was it like when you lost all your money after gambling? Were they angry vicious men with yelling and screaming its just so many things to think of when shooting dice goes wrong, because if you lost and wanted to win do you now rob the person for Jesus clothes? I mean there’s so many thoughts running through my head. This is in my opinion. Feel free to leave your thoughts.

OH AND CAN YOU BELIEVE THE CHARGE AGAINST HIM SMH.
