Unashamed of God’s Vision!

Introduction: God Is My Life

The Bible often speaks of the blessings God has for us when we walk in His way. Following His simple – to – understand – but not always easy – to – live out – guidelines for our attitudes and behaviors.

God Is Love, if you don’t know God, you don’t know love!!!

I pray this next statement doesn’t shock you, but God does not love you and me because we are loveable. God loves us because His very nature is love. He can not do anything, but love. Even His wrath and judgment reveals His love for people  whose self – destructive ways He longs to have them stop.

Psalm 103:1 > Bless the Lord, O my soul: And all that is in me, bless His holy name!

Romans 1:14-15 > “I am obligated both to Greeks and non-Greeks, both to the wise and the foolish. That is why I  am so eager to preach the gospel also to you are in.

What is one why I can take a step of obedience towards God’s vision for your life, (my life)?

When I wake up make sure I thank the Lord for being a live. I thank the Lord for letting me read His Word, to hear His voice talking to me, right to my heart. I thank Jesus for the love of forgiveness and forgiveness of sins, and bei g willing to recreated to live a better life. As a child of my Heavenly Father, for loving me no matter what. He has equipped me to live in newness daily

I believe it’s God’s plan to work through me to carry out His mission for His glory.

Unashamed of God’s Vision;

How do you define yourself?

How do I define myself?

Every question that’s asked make it personal. Jesus deserves our respect. So, I  have been learning to write in the first person (myself).                                                                                                           

When I have a relationship with someone its about my relationship with them. God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.                                                                                                              My relationship with Jesus is the same way. I am not ashamed of my identity in Christ or with Christ I love Him, dearly!                                                                                                                                                                       The call to live loud for Christ, unashamed of the Gospel, is clear in Scripture. But how do we live with such. Boldness?

The answer is three-fold, and it comes from a close look at Romans 1 and the life of the life of the Apostle Paul;

He says, “The first reason I can live unashamed of the Gospel is because I know who I am znd who’s I am. I am a child of the Living God and it is Him, I  belong to I know that Jesus Christ is Lord, and I am set apart by Him to be what ever He wants me to be for His glory.                                I  don’t know what He planned. I do know my identity is in Christ, and nothing can take that away from me.               In a day when so many people are so mixed up about who they are, when it is fashionable to question your gender.                                                                                                   Not Me! I blame this issue on Hollywood and the Democrats.

I hold on very tightly to my blood-bought identity. I am not confused about what my purpose on earth is supposed to be. I know my identity  – I am a servant of Jesus Christ, My beloved Brothers and Sisters in Jesus Christ, our Lord this is the healthiest self-perception we can ever have.

We are also Gentiles who are called to belong to Christ Jesus.

Today we need to root ourselves in this glorious identity today. Will you join me in this grace filled identity today and be anchored regardless of what opposition comes your way. Don’t miss out on the piece take only comes from Jesus, Himself and know who you belong to in Jexus name, Amen.

The second reason, I can live unashamed of the Gospel is because, I believe by faith God has given a vision only He can show me, for His glory in my life.

Today, the average person simply exist, living a shallow life that is focused only on ower own day to day needs.

I am eager to testify to God’s saving grace in my life. I don’t just trust and believe I know what the Lord has done for me. There is always a purpose of God’s beauty in  my life. There is always a purpose for even the bad stuff in my life.

I am a human traffick survivor. Ever since I was 2 years old my father beat me almost death. My mother threw her body over mine to save my life.                                             I have trusted that this was God’s vision for me even through it’s taking longer than expected. I asked Jesus to show me Him in my life.                                                                I have been forced to have sex with people I didn’t want to. I beaten for standing up for God, and believing that people can take what ever they want, but they can’t have my faith. I still trust God with everything.                                  Paul seen his fulfillment (see Acts 28:11-31).

Roma At Last Acts 28:11 – After three months we set sail in an Alexandria ship that had wintered at the island, with the Twin God’s as its figure head.

12 – Putting it at Syracuse, we stayed there three days.

Chapter 2:                              

Jesus did not preach these words as a reminder that we’re unable to fulfill what He calls us to.                                                                                            Instead, I can view them as an invitation  – to His disciples, the crowd, and all of us who have come to believe in Him.                                                                                     By telling us what blessing will come to His redeemed people, He is offering a guide for how to interact with the world and direct our hearts.                                                          Romans 6:4 > I have within me the glory of God that raised Christ from the dead.

2 Peter 1:17 > As a joint heir with Jesus you (I) the potential to live and walk in the excellence of the glory.        My Spiritual heritage is one of excellence that includes people like.

Daniel 6:3 – Daniel distinguished himself above the administrators and satrays because he had an extraordinary spirit, so the king planned to set him over the whole realm.

4 – The knowledge of how to operate in the excellence of God’s glory is already in you (me).

2 Corinthians 4:6 > For God who said, “Let light shine out of darkness,” has shone in our hearts to give the light of the knowledge of God’s glory in the face of Jesus Christ.

Like the Apostle Paul, I can press in to this knowledge.

Philippines 3:14 > I pursue as my goal the prize promised by God’s heavenly call in Christ Jesus.

2 Corinthians 12:1-10 > Boasting is necessary. It is not profitable, but I will move on to visions and revelations of the Lord.

2- I know a man in Christ who was caught to the third heaven fourteen years ago. Whether he was in the body or out of the body I don’t know; God knows.

(That’s all that matters)

3 – I know that this man – whether in the body or out of the body I don’t know, God knows –

4 – was caught up into paradise and heard inexpressible words, which a human being is not allowed to speak.

5 – I will boast about this person, but not about myself, except of my weaknesses.

6 – For if I want to boast, I wouldn’t be a fool because I would be telling the truth. But I will spare you, so that no one can credit me with something beyond what he sees in me or hears from me,

7 – especially because of the extraordinary revelations. Therefore, so that I would not exalt myself, a thron in the flesh was given to me, a messenger of Satan to torment me so that I would not exalt myself.

8 – Concerning this, I pleaded with the Lord three times that it would leave me.

9 – But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you for my power is perfected in weakness.” Therefore, I will most gladly boast all the more about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may reside in me.

10 – So I take pleasure in weaknesses, insult, hardships, persecutions, and in difficulties, for the sake of Christ. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

11 – I have been a fool; you forced it on me. You ought to have commented me, since I am not in any way inferior to those “super-apostles,” even though I am nothing.

Thought For the Day; When I am weak I can find strength in God’s power.

Philippines 4:13 > I am able to do all things through him who strengthens me.

14 – Still, you

I felt the reassured that God’s strength and power within me – not my weakness – would prevail. God does not ask us to be strong on our own. That’s why God had a love story written for us. The Bible is the Living Word of God. Our Lord talks directly to me. I thank You, Lord for this love story to me.

At the beginning of the my abuse I would fight back, until one day at the age of 15, I dressed really sexy and hung out by a bar my father drank in. I left the area to go home. I found myself being followed by one of the guy where I was. The guy attacked me beat me really bad. When I went back to where is was one of the other guys went after him. He came back beat up as well.

My parents did their best to raise me. My fathers discipline was beating me up, because his step-dad beat him. He was also put in St. Michael’s school for boys. The Nuns there did the discipline, their was were horrible.         My mother was taken from her mother when she was two, so, was my Aunt Jenny, they ended up orphans and lived at Friendship House, were my Grandparents Helen and Norvel who became foster parents to my mother. They were wonderful people to me. I learned a lot from Grandma and Grandpa. Grandpa died in 2001, and Grandma died in 2003. My world turned upside down. I love them still even with them being with the Lord.

My mother always had Bible’s around. Even the Jesus of Nazareth book to the movie. Mom would have me look for Jesus in every picture that had a crowd (like where’s Waldo kind of way). I loved looking at all the Bible’s she had. At the age of 13 I, picked up a children’s Bible with pictures. I loved that book and I wanted to know more. I hear God talking with me through His Word. I get a new Bible every year and start over reading it. I always learn more when I do this. When I was younger I participated in church and I still was until 2020. I do listen and watch churches on YouTube and TV. I do still listen to sermons and teachings of God’s Word. The stories of the Bible are in my heart. That’s where the Lord wants the Word to be written in our hearts, not dead stone.

I have asked the Lord to show me His wisdom and understanding, because that’s all that Solomon asked for and was the riches person in the world. I am rich with God, the Holy Spirit. Understanding that the Kingdom of God is within helps me to talk about the love of God, because God is Love. Like Paul, I have to trust and believe God to bring His vision in my life.                                                Do not despair when detours come, be encouraged. Any true calling must endure intense opposition.

In Romans 1:17 > Paul reminds, “The righteous will live by faith.” Jesus Christ is the only solid ground for our feet amidst the sinking sands of economic, cultural, and political change, and the Bible speaks about our faith in Him, in three different teases: past, present and future.          My past faith is the moment I came to Christ, confessing my sins and saying,                                                                           “Only Your Blood can save me. Now my present faith is the strongest its ever been. At this moment, I am exercising faith in the Living God to strengthen me, empower me and push me forward so that I might continue faithfully serving Him.                                                   Therefore, there is a future faith, the truth I have that the moment after I close my eyes in death,                                      I will open them looking into the loving face of Jesus Christ.                                                                                                     How do I need to store up my faith today, all day long: I remember how You Lord have saved me, or rejoicing in eternity?                                                                                       You have saved Me Every Time, even in my sin you still love me and I am thankful to You. For years I felt like I was living in a prison. I have been hurt all of my life. Understanding, now as long as I am for Christ, I would be attacked by the devil. Christ, Himself said we would be attacked from everyone and from every side.

2021 Is For the Local Church In the Name of Jesus:                   Psalm 65:11 > You crown the year with a bountiful harvest; even the hard pathways overflow with abundance.

Paslm 77:5 > I think of tne good old days, long since ended,

6 > when my nights were filled with joyful song. I search my soul and ponder the difference now.

7 > Has the Lord rejoiced me forever? Will He never be kind to me?

8 > Is his unfailing love gone forever? Have His promises permanently failed?

9 > Has God forgotten to be gracious? Has He slammed the door on His compassion?

12 > Tney are constantly in my thoughts. I cannot stop thinking about Your mighty works.

14 > You are the God of great wonders! You demonstrate Your awesome power among the nations.

Psalm 78:1 > O my people, listen to my instructions. Open your ears to what I am saying,

2 > for I will speak to you in parable. I  will teach you hidden lessons for our (you, my), past —

3 > stories we have heard and known, stories our ancestors handed down to us.

“There is nothing wrong with carving out time to pray, but I try not to pressure myself to formalize paryer,”                                                                                                                                                        I like to make prayer a more casual conversation with the Lord and stop at points throughout the day,  like when I am cleaning the house. God has let me talk with him, I  enjoy talking with my Father, turning to Him as much as I do helps me throughout the day, because I rely on God more then myself, and create the buil blocks of a clser personal relationship and fellowship. I start each dayin conversation with God thanking Him for the day that the Lord as made, for protecting me through the night, thank God for blessing me.                                                                                             Then I talk with Him about what ever is weighting on me the most. Therefore, I serender everything knowingly and unknowingly.                                                                                                              I once was diagnosed with Lupus;  I’ve asked God for strength and clarity to cope. And, I was getting high I still talked with Him. Well after five years, I don’t have it anymore. I think the Lord for the healing. Jesus name Amen.

One day I was listening to Joseph Prince, I heard him say, “we are the righteousness ones of God in Christ,” I started looking to Christ to fix me, and trust Him completely. And understanding of a Father, who can give me love and peace.

“Prayer and gratitude help me ignore the minutia and focus on really matters the most.                                                 I rely on my faith in God and His plan for my life, I work through the pain and I saw that life is precious and delicate and can dramatically change in a blink of an eye. It helped me appreciate God’s beauty in day-to-day life and let go of all the things that aren’t really important.        “After becoming a Christian years ago, I saw such a wonderful change in my life. I never felt uncomfortable with my Lord. There are fimes I don’t know what to say or know how to pray, but God the Holy Spirit takes over. God is the only one who I trust, no one else. God, my Father thinks of me all the time.                                                     God’s Word says to trust in Him and Him Only. I don’t even trust myself.                                                                         At times my prayers seemed rehearsed. I believe praying rehearsed prayers have got me through ruff times. The Lord’s Prayer is that model prayer, its also near and dear to my heart. The prayer helps me focus on the Lord and not myself. After trying and failing in prayer I had to go back to the prayers I remembered. Connect through prayer is very important to me. The Word of God is the only answer to everything in life. I felt like I was failing God and learned He loves me no matter what. All good things take practice; even during prayer. I realized that prayer is all about building a relationship with God. He already knows what’s going on. Every breath, ever thought, He is our Heavenly Father who made us in He just wants me to talk to Him; Like a child talks to their earthly father. The more I take with Him, the closer we become. So, I keep on prayering, even if I don’t say anything or everything perfectly.

God knows everything anyway. Every thought, every mood, and He knows every word for our mouths before we say it, and even our next move. He’s not surprised by anything we do.

So, before I knew it, my prayer “life” led not to only good things, but the best things in life.                                                  I have suffered from symptoms of Post Tramatic Stress Disorders being beaten, raped and even shot, reading God’s Word, has help changed my life a little at a time. But there are times even this message replaying in my heart, I couldn’t imagine anything else making me feel safe again. There are time’s the Bible verses felt hollow somehow, a lovely shing of words I didn’t understand. I learned to pray before I read, to hear God speak to me through His Word. It is God’s promises that comfort me. He has promised never to leave and to be afraid. We with me always. And thinks about me all the time. The Love I get to share with our Heavenly Father is forever. There are times I feel loving arms around me. I know its Jesus.

The night that my husband Christian, shot me, I felt to two hands on my back pushing me to the ground that saved my life. I was shot 4 times that night. After Christian shot me, he then killed himself in front of me. I couldn’t understand why he did that, I still don’t. For a long time I closed everyone out of my life and I became distant from family and friends. I entered in to a downward Spiral of anger and resentment.

I love Christian with everything that I had. I thought he was the most wonderful person in my life I didn’t feel anything for anyone the 1st year of the death. I couldn’t understand why someone who was crying the way Christian waz that night he shot me would ever do anything the way he did. It’s not like we didn’t have our life planned out because we did. We just by the trailer and we have plans to fix the trailer up we had plans of building a barbecue outside put in a porch around and the whole trailer so I can hang up my flowers and do things like that. That man made sure I had everything that I needed and wanted no matter what it was.But I can’t say this during a lot of hurt and distrust with him to. He cheated on me he would come around he freaking used me only time come around when nobody else wanted him. He did want me but he never want anybody else to have me either.I can see everything that he did wrong to me now. In the closer I got to Christ I was close to chrisie bananas while. I used to have my quiet times they used to do my prayers and all that when I was with Christian as well.

I want my sleepless nights I decided to go into the memory of my life with Christian it wasn’t the 1st time I’ve done this period I’ve never been so hurt or deceived in my life like I was with him. After the shooting I went back to the trailer to grab some things and when I got there going thing I could see which Chris mine on the floor. I could remember when the EMT had put me on the stretcher and took me out in a look over in a scene Chris with the whole in nis head.  There are many memories in my head of him beating me to the point to where I had to go to the hospital. He broke my nose so many times that I had to go to the hospital the last time because of the beaten. In the beatings that I took, I kept taken for 8 years. I thank God for everything that Christ, done for me because without Jesus being in my life I won’t have what I do. I would never been able to live through that night. I know chrisye before reason. And I thank you Jesus for all you have done.  You say this that night a desal happen with being shot I defer give Christian the moment that happened. I told him to get up get up we have grandchildren to take care of in eating get up ever again. The thing that bothers me the most at night woz of I had a crawl through that trailer to find the cell phone I got the cell phone and signal hit the tower before it shut off. I tried to break out the windows in then I had dragged myself again II drug myself up in around christian’s body he was still warm.  Jesus day give me a piece that night as well. No matter the pain that I was in Christ was still there.

As much as I missed Christian, I knew Christian was still there and filled my emptiness and became my husband. I am no longer a widow. And understanding that time is owers to borrow… but the love I share with Jesus is mine forever. While it may sound counter-intuitive, giving is the most crucial step to finding freedom from the past worry. When I focus on other needs its an act of true faith: I am giving God complete control and doing as He commands. And it doesn’t come over night. So, even when my circumstances don’t change right away there is a reason and everything is on God’s timing. He knows exactly what we need better thencwe do. Thank You Father in Jesus name Amen.

The key was for me was to simply give what I could. I have to give myself completely in order for things to work. Heart, mind, body, and soul.                                               It comes down to my relationship with God and how He called me to help build His Kingdom. Join me as Jesus’ calls us by allowing our hearts to be filled His loving, joyful light each day each day. Jesus is always waiting on us.

I thank God, I have been a Christian as long as I can remember. I have and still do read the Bible most of the time. I have struggled with viewing myself being worthy of God’s love. There have been times I sense Him being disappointed in my sins. I remember, the blood of Jesus has cleaned me of all my sins. God, came to earth in the flesh to died for my sins. Thank You, Father, in Your Sons Jesus name Amen.

Blessed be the Lord and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, and the Father of mercies and God of all comfort who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort which we ourselves are comforted by God. For as we share abundantly in Christ’s suffering, so through Christ we share so through Christ we share abundantly in comfort too.

We understand and yet: sometimes we feel confused because we are tought God comes first no matter what. You and I are both judgemental and vengeful. We feel fearful of Your power and that we will never live up to deserving Your love, but we still long to grow closer to You. How do we over come our fear of Your judgment. I understand You have already judged us. Christian visions should be to follow Jesus. No matter what! Even those who don’t know You; You find away to talk with them. Because only You can change us from the inside out. I asked You in and Your, Holy Spirit went to work and still is working, Praise the Lord. You molded me for your glory, not mine. You are always my way out.

We all worries come up and democrat to be thought, simply invite to pass through. From this place of mental and physical stillness, send my loving heart to You. I feel your Spirit lift as the Holy Spirit brings us into a union. I have learned to set back and relax in Your love. Allow it to flow through me. There’s no judgment here. There’s is only love and tenderness and joy. Let’s do this more often.

Jesus to the crowd, Matthew 5:8 > “Blessed are the pure in heart, for they shall see God.”

Dear Jesus, thank you for Your education of Your Word. And the ability to connect with You in my heart. As, I turn from my sinful ways, back to learning the way of Your way. Because, your way is the only way. Learning Your Word means everything. I have always defended my beliefs with many people and still until I died. Well physical death. I am for your well in my life. I thank You, Jesus for being every where. I have learned how to analyze, inspect and ask questions, relationship with You. I have learned to build a loving relationship with the Father through prayer and talking.

I thank You for answering my questions. I thank You for the blessings. You, Have given me all my life back there are needing voices in my head asking me where is the proof? I say He lives and rose from the grave. Praise the Lord. I continue to pray through it all. Believing in the miracles everyday. The miracle of another day of life and thanksgivings to the Lord. And, there are time I come away feeling empty, like I have spun my wheels on the ice. I even have had disbelief and dought. But, true to God’s, Word, He always come through. I believe I have a relationship with Him. There are times I even been ungrateful for the things He’s done for me. How do I even over come my own logic-prone mind?

Wisdom of the Word: See to it that no one takes you captive by philosophy and empty deceit, according to human traditions, according to the elemental spirits of the world. There is only one element and that’s the Lord. Jesus is the only answer. Our Father has given us the intelligence to question to the work regarding, Your teaching for more than 2000 years, you find it wanting. There is no shame in this. When I reflect on my Biblical Education, I thank God for my mother, who let what movies about Jesus. I learned the stories a d kept them written in my heart. I can bring my teaching to all the people who are hungry for the Lord, like I am. This suggests that there is another way of knowing – a way only God’s, Word has to offer. And there is: It’s the knowing that comes from the heart.

Do you have a few minutes to conduct a little experiment?

If so, settle into a stillness, releasing your thoughts from your mind and tension from your body, and summon the love you feel for the Lord. Because His love endures forever. So, much He came to earth in the flesh, was beaten beyond recognition, died, and He concurred the grave, by stepping out of the tomb. As you breathe out allow yourself to release that love out in all directions. As you breathe in, feel yourself taking in the love that surrounds you. I am breathing out and breathing in, we will begin to enter a new level of knowing. Trust this and you will find Him and get to know Him for yourselves. He’s reaching ojt His hands for you to trust His amazing love, mercy and the power in His grace. There is nothing like it or will be again.

Wisdom is the Word: the stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone. This is the Lord’s doing; it is marvelous in our eyes.

Psalm 118:22-23 >

We understand and yet it can be traumatic to feel rejected and excluded from a person, group or activity that’s important to us. I have been rejected from many things in my life. Some rejection is good for us. God will intervene when something or someone is not right for our spiritual growth. I have been rejected from churches because God wants me to hear the truth about Him. When no one validates our feelings and views it hurts. People are ignorant and think of themselves before they do God. I can say that because I have as well. Now, I pray for those who think their better than others. Remember, Jesus is the only way and always the answer. That’s how I deal with being left and unwanted. Remember this as well, Christ is the church. Jesus, Himself was rejected when He was on earth and in the garden before He was arrested. Christ, told us in His Word, we will be beat and people will walk from us. Christ’s own disciples walked away from Him.

Luke 4:29-30 > When rejection strikes me, I must go my way. I must stay in with the Word of God, and keep letting Jesus change me.

Sometimes we will be rejected because we are Christians. Even Christians reject Christians. Sometimes ignorance or close-mindedness of others. Your Holy Spirit directs me.

Either way it hurts. I have been asked to leave churches for my honesty. Nobody likes it.

Murder of a People!

Mohawk Residential school deaths were common and have been linked to the persistence of poorly constructed and maintained facilities. The actual number of deaths remains unknown due to inconsistent reporting by school officials and the destruction of medical and administrative records in compliance with retention and disposition policies for government records. Research by the TRC revealed that at least 6,000 students had died, mostly from disease. Other estimates place the death toll at three times that number and some in the tens of thousands.
The 1906 Annual Report of the Department of Indian Affairs, submitted by chief medical officer Peter Bryce, highlighted that the “Indian population of Canada has a mortality rate of more than double that of the whole population, and in some provinces more than three times”.[4]:97–98[48]:275 Among the list of causes he noted tuberculosis and the role residential schools played in spreading the disease by way of poor ventilation and medical screening
In 1909, Bryce reported that, between 1894 and 1908, mortality rates at some residential schools in western Canada ranged from 30% to 60% over five years (that is, five years after entry, 30% to 60% of students had died, or 6–12% per annum).[49] These statistics did not become public until 1922, when Bryce, who was no longer working for the government, published The Story of a National Crime: Being a Record of the Health Conditions of the Indians of Canada from 1904 to 1921. In particular, he alleged that the high mortality rates could have been avoided if healthy children had not been exposed to children with tuberculosis.[4][50][51] At the time, no antibiotic had been identified to treat the disease, and this exacerbated the impact of the illness. Streptomycin, the first effective treatment, was not introduced until 1943.[20]:381
In 1920 and 1922, Regina physician F. A. Corbett was commissioned to visit the schools in the west of the country, and found similar results to those reported by Bryce. At the Ermineskin school in Hobbema, Alberta, he found 50% of the children had tuberculosis.[14]:98 At Sarcee Boarding School near Calgary, he noted that all 33 students were “much below even a passable standard of health” and “[a]ll but four were infected with tuberculosis”.[14]:99 In one classroom, he found 16 ill children, many near death, who were being made to sit through lessons.[14]:99

Cairn erected in 1975 marking the Battleford Industrial School cemetery
In 2011, reflecting on the TRC’s research, Justice Murray Sinclair told the Toronto Star: “Missing children—that is the big surprise for me … That such large numbers of children died at the schools. That the information of their deaths was not communicated back to their families.”[52]
Missing children and unmarked graves[edit source]
The TRC concluded that it may be impossible to ever identify the number of deaths or missing children, in part because of the habit of burying students in unmarked graves.[53][54][55] The work is further complicated by a pattern of poor record keeping by school and government officials, who neglected to keep reliable numbers about the number of children who died or where they were buried.[6] While most schools had cemeteries on site, their location and extent remain difficult to determine as cemeteries that were originally marked were found to have been later razed, intentionally hidden or built over.[55][56]
The fourth volume of the TRC’s final report, dedicated to missing children and unmarked burials, was developed after the original TRC members realized, in 2007, that the issue required its own working group. In 2009, the TRC requested $1.5 million in extra funding from the federal government to complete this work, but was denied.[6] The researchers concluded, after searching land near schools using satellite imagery and maps, that, “for the most part, the cemeteries that the Commission documented are abandoned, disused, and vulnerable to accidental disturbance”.[57]:

The name “Iroquois” is French variant on a term for “snake” given by the Hurons. There were other tribes who spoke the same language, but who were not part of the confederacy. The Erie natives had been related to the Iroquois. They lived east shore Lake Erie in New York and Pennsylvania. The Iroquois Confederacy considered them enemies and wiped them all out.
By 1650, the Iroquois began to push their way into the rich Ohio Country between the Great Lakes and the Ohio River. They conquered and drove out various natives living in the area. The resulting in wars known as the Beaver Wars (1650-1700 A.D.) because the Iroquois wanted more land for hunting and trapping beavers and deer. The participated in the fur trade with the Dutch and the English. Unlike many other tribes east of the Mississippi, most of the Iroquois Nation didn’t favor the French over the English. A small group of Mohawks and Onondagas converted to Catholicism and aided the French. A small number of Iroquois lived in modern-day Ohio, only several hundred at a time, only for hunting. There had been some who stayed and developed their own political system and separated themselves entirely from the ways of life of the east. With said, I have discovered the Mohawk Tribe of Ohio.
I have been blessed to be born of American Indian blood, my blood is of the nation Iroquois. If you look up the history of the Iroquois the American constitution has been taken from many of our ways and beliefs. With that said, I have been studying my family history all my life. There is so much history in my family to be able to write things I am. it has been an adventure for me a long the way along with many tears. To talk to my mother and find out that there had been slavery in my family as well eats at me. In school, we are taught about black slavery, NO ONE EVER TALKS ABOUT THE ABUSE AND SLAVERY MY PEOPLE THE AMERICAN INDIAN HAVE SUFFERED.
The women more so. Men are men no matter what color you are. My grandmother had been sold to my grandfather. Whom happened to be 20 years older and only two children lived out of seven my mother and one aunt.
Iroquois Women
The Heart of the Nation
“There is nothing more real than the
Superiority of the women. It is they who constitute
The tribe, transmit the nobility blood,… and perpetuate
The family. The possess all actual authority; own the land, and
The fields and their harvest; they are the soul of the councils,
The arbiters of peace and war; they have care of the public treasury;
[captives] are given them; they arrange marriages; the children belong to them and their blood confined the line of descent and the order of inheritance.”

1724

Than one day I came across Ohio. I had been surprised by what I had read. Here is what I had found on the internet about Fort Greenville.
The treaty of Fort Greenville was signed on August 3, 1795. At fort Greenville what is now Greenville, Ohio; it followed negotiations, (which means lie in white language) after the American Indian loss at the Battle of Fallen Timbers a year earlier. It ended the Northwest Indian war in the Ohio country and limited strategic parcels of land to the north and east. (which again was robbed from us by white lies). The parties to the treaty were a coalition of American Indian Tribes, known as the Western Confederacy, and the United States government represented by General Anthony Wayne for local frontiersmen.
Whom, Toledo’s Anthony Wayne Trail is named.
The treaty is considered “the beginning of modern Ohio history.”
The treaty established what became known as the Greenville Treaty Line, which was for several years a boundary between the Indian Territory and land stolen by the White Europeans. The latter American thieves frequently disregarded the treaty, (we got punished for white people wrongs). The treaty line to encroach on American Indian land. The treaty was also established the “annuity system: this is where the yearly grants of federal money and supplies of calico cloth came in to the Indians, and institutionalized continuing government influence in the tribe’s affairs giving outside considerable control over the Indian life in Ohio. the treaty of Greenville, also called a treaty of Fort Greenville, on the same date settlement between whites and the Indians. Indian confederation headed by Miami Chief Little Turtle by which the Indians ceded most of the future state of Ohio and significant portion of what would be the states of Michigan, Indiana, and Illinois.
As whites moved into the Northwest territory in the years following the American revolution their advance was opposed by lose of alliance was mainly Algonquian speaking people. This subject will need to come in another article. The Shawnee and the Delaware to the whites. Their Indian name is Linni Lenape or Lenape. These tribes pushed from New York, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey, to Ohio. both whom have been driven west by prior territorial encroachments, joined the Ottawa, Ojibwa, Miami, and Potawatomi in the Northwest Indian confederation, led by Little Turtle, the American Indian confederation skirmished with settlers and Kentucky militia in the late 1780’s.
In the effort to pacify the region and the stake a concussive claim to areas that had been ceded by the British under the terms of the peace of Paris (1783), a series of expeditions were dispatched in the Northwest Territory. The first under General Josiah Harmer, was routed in a pair of engagements in October 1790. The second, led by Northwest Territory governor Arthur St Clair, was crushed on November 4, 1791 in one of the worst defeats ever suffered by the United States military against an American Indian force. Not much is ever talked about the victories of the American Indians. Because whites are always ashamed for defeat when it comes their ass being handed to them. SMILING.
Emboldened by victories and promise of support from the British, who still occupied strategic forts within the Northwest territory, the confederacy appeared to have checked the American advance. In, 1792 President George Washington appointed General “Mad” Anthony Wayne as commander of the United States Army and tasked him with crushing the resistance. Unlike the previous expeditions which relied heavily on militia troops. Wayne’s force consisted of professional, seasoned infantry. On August 20, 1794, Wayne’s 2000 regulars supplemented, by 1000 mounted Kentucky militia, met 2000 of the confederations warriors near Fort Miami (southwest of modern day Toledo).
In the ensuing Battle of Fallen Timbers. Wayne’s troops had broken the Indian line and the warriors fled. The defeat was compounded by the evaporation of support from the British, which had since become entangled in the French Revolutionary wars and did not wish to risk a confrontation with the United States. Within months of Fallen Timbers, Britain made clear its intentions with the Jay treaty November 19, 1794, wherein it promised to evacuate its forts in the Northwest territory. Beaten in battle and with np prospect of outside assistance, the confederation agreed to terms set forth by the Americans.
On August 3, 1794, Wayne, Little turtle, and their delegations met at Fort Greenville. To conclude the treaty. Both sides agree to a termination of hostilities and exchange of orisons a redefinition of border between the United States and Indian lands. By the term of the treaty, the confederation ceded all lands east and south of a boundary that began at the mouth of the Cuyahoga (in modern day Cleveland) and south to Fort Laurens (modern day Bolivan, Ohio) and then west to Fort Recovery. The boundary then continued south west to the point at which the Kentucky River emptied into the Ohio River. (modern day Carrollton, Kentucky). In addition, the United States was granted strategically significant parcels of land to the North and west of this line, including the sites of the modern cities of Fort Wayne and Lafayette Indiana; Chicago, Illinois; and Toledo Ohio. the treaty also ceded Mackinac Island and its environs, as well as a large track of land encompassing much of the area of modern metropolitan Detroit. After the signing of the treaty. Little advocated cooperation with the United States was not there to keep any order. They got what they wanted once the theft had already been done there was no going back. Tecumsech, who stated that the so-called peace chiefs had given away the land that they not own. All Indian nations understood we did not own the land. We are made of dust and the Great Spirit gives us life. Not all the great Chief, wanted any treaty. They were ready to fight to keep what they had.
Tecumseh had led a brilliant campaign against the Americans during the War of 1812, his death of 1813 and the disintegration spelled the effective end of organized Indian resistance in the known at the time as the Western Confederacy.

The Mohawk Institute in 2013
The Mohawk Institute Residential School was a Canadian Indian residential school in Brantford, Ontario, Canada. The School operated under the Government of Canada from July 1, 1885 to June 27, 1970. Prior to 1885 the Anglican Church of Canada was involved in the operation of a school and residential school in the same location. Enrollment at the school ranged from 90 to 200 students per year.

History
2 It was operated by the Anglican Church of Canada from its founding as the “Mechanics’ Institute” (a day school for boys on the Six Nations of the Grand River reserve) in 1828 until 1969, when control was handed over to the Canadian federal government.[1] The Mohawk Institute was established on 350-acres of farm land, all of which were or had been part of the land of Six Nations at some point.[2]
In 1831, the school began to function as a residential school for boys, and starting in 1834, girls were taken in as boarders as well.[1] Children from Six Nations were sent there, along with some from the New Credit, and Moraviantown, Sarnia, Walpole Island, Muncey, Scugog, Stoney Point, Saugeen, Bay of Quinte and Kahnawake reserves.
While the school was originally nearby the Mohawk village, in 1837 the colonial government of Upper Canada ordered Six Nation residents to resettle south of the Grand River, kilometers from the school.[1] Between 1854–1859, the building was destroyed by fire and rebuilt a few hundred meters from its original location.[1] Around the same time, the school acquired more land, and farming became a prominent part of life for children at the school. In 1885, the year after the Indian Act made enrollment compulsory for Status Indian children under 16,[3] the school began to accept students from reserves beyond Six Nations.[1]
On April 19, 1903, the main school building was again destroyed by fire. On May the barns of the Mohawk School were also destroyed by fire. On June 24, 1903 the playhouse which had been serving as the boys’ dorm since the main fire in April was also burned down. All three of these fires have been attributed to students at the school.[4] The school buildings were rebuilt the following year. The new school building contained separate boys and girls wings, principal’s and teachers quarters, as well as administrative offices.[1] This new school building was designed to hold 150 students and also included the development of barns, stables, and other agriculture related out buildings.[2]
In 1922, the management of the school was formally taken over by the Canadian government, though the Anglican church retained ownership, and the agreement required that the principal be Anglican.[1] A chapel was added to the school in 1930.[2] By 1955, enrollment reached 185 children.[1]
In 1963, farming was discontinued as the children were now given a full day of education without requiring their manual labour.[1] Enrollment decreased as schools were built in reserve throughout Ontario, and in 1970, the school was closed. Six Nations assumed ownership of the building the following year.

Mohawk Institute ca.1932
It was operated by the Anglican Church of Canada from its founding as the “Mechanics’ Institute” (a day school for boys on the Six Nations of the Grand River reserve) in 1828 until 1969, when control was handed over to the Canadian federal government.[1] The Mohawk Institute was established on 350-acres of farm land, all of which were or had been part of the land of Six Nations at some point.[2]

Abuse[edit source]
the Abuse that was happeningMany former students have described suffering physical, sexual and emotional abuse at the school.[5][6][7] The poor quality of food served to students led to the school’s nickname, The Mush Hole.
In 1914 two former students from the Mohawk School charged the school’s principal for cutting off their hair, imprisonment, and physical abuse. The case went to trial on March 31, 1914 where the students were awarded $400 for two of the claims and the Principal was fined.[4]
Formal complaints were registered against the school and staff relating to physical abuse, the use of the strap, and quality of food by students and parents of students in 1937, 1951, 1955, and 1965.[4]

Present Day[edit source]
Following the closure of the Mohawk Institute in 1970 the Woodland Cultural Centre opened on the site in 1972, as an organization focused on research, history, and later the arts.[8] Woodland’s cultural and historical interpretation programming utilizes the historic Mohawk Institute building to teach about the history of residential schools in Canada.[9]
In 2013 a leak in the roof of the residential school building caused significant damage to the historic site. As a result of this leak a community input process was established within Six Nations of the Grand River to determine what the local community wanted to do with the building, 98% of participants voted to save the historic building.[10] In March 2014 the “Save the Evidence” campaign was started to raise money to preserve the Mohawk Institute and to raise awareness about the history of residential schools.[8]

History of The Ohio Treaty, Education into Ohio’s history.

I have been blessed to be born of American Indian blood, my blood is of Iroquosis. If you look up the history of the Iroqusis the American constitution has been taken from many of our ways and beliefs. With that said, I have been studying my family history all my life. There is so much history and it has been an adventure for me along with many tears. To talk to my mother and find out that there had been slavery in my family eats at me. In school, we are taught about black slavery, NO ONE EVER TALKS ABOUT THE ABUSE AND SLAVERY MY PEOPLE, WE HAVE SUFFERED.

By: Joseph-Francois Lafitau

1724

  Than one day I came across Ohio. I had been surprised by what I had read. Here is what I had found on the internet about Fort Greenville.

The treaty of Fort Greenville was signed on August 3, 1795. At fort Greenville what is now Greenville, Ohio; it followed negotiations, (which means lie in white language) after the American Indian loss at the Battle of Fallen Timbers a year earlier. It ended the Northwest Indian war in the Ohio country and limited strategic parcels of land to the north and east. (which again was robbed from us by white lies). The parties to the treaty were a coalition of American Indian Tribes, known as the Western Confederacy, and the United States government represented by General Anthony Wayne for local frontiersmen.

Whom, Toledo’s Anthony Wayne Trail is named.

The treaty is considered “the beginning of modern Ohio history.” 

The treaty established what became known as the Greenville Treaty Line, which was for several years a boundary between the Indian Territory and land stolen by the White Europeans. The latter American thieves frequently disregarded the treaty, (we got punished for white people wrongs). The treaty line to encroach on American Indian land. The treaty was also established the “annuity system: this is where the yearly grants of federal money and supplies of calico cloth came in to the Indians, and institutionalized continuing government influence in the tribes affairs giving outside considerable control over the Indian life in Ohio. the treaty of Greenville, also called a treaty of Fort Greenville, on the same date settlement between whites and the Indians. Indian confederation headed by Miami Cheif Little Trutle by which the Indians ceded most of the future state of Ohio and significant portion of what would be the states of Michigan, Indiana, and Illinois. 

As whites moved into the Northwest territory in the years following the American revolution their advance was opposed by lose of alliance was mainly Alogonquian speaking people. This subject will need to come in another article. The Shawnee and the Delaware to the whites. Their Indian name is Linni Lenape or Lenape. These tribes pushed from New York, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey, to Ohio. both whom have been driven west by prior territorial encroachments, joined the Ottawa, Ojibwa, Miami, and Potawatomi in the Northwest Indian confederation, led by Little Turtle, the American Indian confederation skirmished with settlers and Kentucky militia in the late 1780’s.

In the effort to pacify the region and the stake a concussive claim to areas that had been ceded by the British under the terms of the peace of Paris (1783), a series of expeditions were dispatched in the Northwest Territory. The first under General Josiah Harmer, was routed in a pair of engagements in October 1790. The second, led by Northwest Territory governor Arthur St Clair, was crushed on November 4, 1791 in one of the worst defeats ever suffered by the United States military against a American Indian force. Not much is ever talked about the victories of the American Indians. Because whites are always ashamed for defeat when it comes their ass being handed to them. SMILING.

Emboldened by victories and promise of support from the British, who still occupied strategic forts within the Northwest territory, the confederacy appeared to have checked the American advance. In, 1792 President George Washington appointed General “Mad” Anthony Wayne as commander of the United States Army and tasked him with crushing the resistance. Unlike the previous expeditions which relied heavily on militia troops. Wayne’s force consisted of professional, seasoned infantry. On August 20, 1794, Wayne’s 2000 regulars supplemented, by 1000 mounted Kentucky militia, met 2000 of the confederations warriors near Fort Miami (southwest of modern day Toledo).

In the ensuing Battle of Fallen Timbers. Wayne’s troops had broken the Indian line and the warriors fled. The defeat was compounded by the evaporation of support from the British, which had since become entangled in the French Revolutionary wars and did not wish to risk a confrontation with the United States. Within months of Fallen Timbers, Britain made clear its intentions with the Jay treaty November 19, 1794, wherein it promised to evacuate its forts in the Northwest territory. Beaten in battle and with np prospect of outside assistance, the confederation agreed to terms set forth by the Americans. 

On August 3, 1794, Wayne, Little turtle, and their delegations met at Fort Greenville. To conclude the treaty. Both sides agree to a termination of hostilities and exchange of orisons a redefinition of border between the United States and Indian lands. By the term of the treaty, the confederation ceded all lands east and south of a boundary that began at the mouth of the Cuyahoga (in modern day Cleveland) and south to Fort Laurens (modern day Bolivan, Ohio) and then west to Fort Recovery. The boundary then continued south west to the point at which the Kentucky River emptied into the Ohio River. (modern day Carrollton, Kentucky). In addition, the United States was granted strategically significant parcels of land to the North and west of this line, including the sites of the modern cities of Fort Wayne and Lafayette Indiana; Chicago, Illinois; and Toledo Ohio. the treaty also ceded Mackinac Island and its environs, as well as a large track of land encompassing much of the area of modern metropolitan Detroit. After the signing of the treaty. Little advocated cooperation with the United States was not there to keep any order. They got what they wanted once the theft had already been done there was no going back. Tecumsech, who stated that the so-called peace chiefs had given away the land that they not own. Not all the great Chief, wanted any treaty. They were ready to fight to keep what they had.

Tecumseh had led a brilliant campaign against the Americans during the War of 1812, his death of 1813 and the disintegration spelled the effective end of organized Indian resistance in the known at the time as the Western Confederacy.

When you see our American Constitution, you will see the Iroquois Confederacy is copied.

Blessed to Be Light!

This week I learned a little about myself. Scripture frequently mentions light in association with God. In Genesis, He called light good (1:3-4); in Psalms, David looked to the Lord for light and salvation (27:1); in John’s gospel, Jesus proclaimed Himself to be the light of the world (8:12). We find light mentioned in many other passages, and it continues in and through our lives today. But, how? This month we will discuss:

Our call to lives as children of light.

How God’s Word guides us.

His light in the darkness.

The way to share His light.
