    Jonathan Wilson Hartgrove speaks on surprising friendships. In honor of its tenth anniversary, the Center for Reconciliation hosted a series of lectures entitled Reconciliation Conversations: Parts of the Whole. The goal of the series is to explore the idea of reconciliation and what it means in the life of a Christian from a variety of perspectives and to open up important conversations not only here among the faculty at Duke Divinity School, but also in the broader Durham community. Rev. Dr. Allan Boesak, Desmond Tutu Chair of Peace, Global Justice, and Reconciliation Studies at Christian Theological Seminary and Butler University, gave a lecture entitled “Chasing Rainbows in the Rainbow Nation: Reconciliation, Justice and the Challenge of Politics.” Author and activist Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove and Duke Divinity MDiv student and co-leader of STAR (Students Thinking Theologically About Reconciliation) Cory O’Neal offered responses. Interim Dean Ellen Davis moderated the event.

Suleiman 1556

  1. ISRAIR Airlines & Tourism
    Holy Sites in Jerusalem

    Throughout the history of Jerusalem, the Jewish, Christian and Muslim faiths have treasured the sacredness of the Holy Land and its Holy City Jerusalem. From the uniqueness of this City built on Seven Hills, each faith has flourished. Today’s visitor to the Holy City of Jerusalem delights in the passion and greatness of Israel’s capital awash with history, shrines holy to three faiths and relics of the past still very much alive today. The major shrines, the Wailing Wall, Temple Mount and Church of the Holy Sepulcher are highlights of each tourist’s experience. Ancient Jerusalem flourished in what today we call The Old City surrounded by its 465-year old wall. The wall has a total of 11 gates, but only seven are open – Jaffa, Zion, Dung, Loins (St. Stephen’s), Herod’s, Damascus (Shechem) and The New Gate. During the years 1536 – 1541, the Turkish sultan Suleiman built these walls. From atop this wall, one has a unique perspective into the life in the Old City.
  2. Suleiman the Magnificent: Builder of Ottoman Jerusalem

    Sultan Suleiman I, the Magnificent, al-Qanuni (“The Lawgiver”), was the greatest sultan of the Ottoman Empire’s many centuries, the man who extended Ottoman dominion to the very gates of Western Europe, and established the laws and cultural norms that would hold sway in the Empire until its dissolution – and influence the modern Turkish state that emerged from the empire’s ruins.
    Though Suleiman was a man of many turbans – conqueror, legislator, patron, poet – it was as a builder that he is remembered in Jerusalem. The city had come under Ottoman control in 1517, when municipal authorities, nominally subject to the Egyptian Mamluks, peacefully handed administrative power over Jerusalem to Sultan Selim I, Suleiman’s father. Upon assuming the throne and expanding Ottoman control even deeper into the Middle East, Suleiman embarked on an ambitious series of public works projects in the major cities of the Islamic world. Suleiman’s efforts in Jerusalem included an extensive renovation of the Dome of the Rock and an upgrade to the civic infrastructure that remains the symbol of Jerusalem to this day: the walls of the Old City.After weathering waves of successive conquerors, Jerusalem’s walls had fallen into disrepair, and by the time of the Ottomans’ arrival, the city was barely fortified. Suleiman commissioned the city wall overhaul in 1536 to protect Jerusalem’s perse inhabitants from a feared Crusader invasion. Although the European kingdoms had not launched a potent Crusade for several centuries by Suleiman’s time, the memory of successive Christian assaults on the Holy Land was still fresh in the minds of the region’s Muslim majority. Suleiman’s crenellated wall, over 40 feet in height, included over thirty towers and countless firing slits, all to provide ample defense from an invasion force that, ironically, never arrived. Seven gates, still open today, allowed access to every quarter of the newly fortified city.Suleiman, possessed of a remarkable religious tolerance for his time, also stressed the inclusion of the holy sites of all Jerusalem’s faiths within his city plan. When he learned that his architects had left Mount Zion, holy to the city’s Jews and Christians, outside the confines of the new wall, he had them executed (the sultan was somewhat less tolerant of failure). Under Suleiman’s benevolent rule, the revitalized Jerusalem flourished, the increased security and enforced religious tolerance sparking immigration to the city and an expansion of the mercantile economy. Unfortunately, after Suleiman’s death in 1566, the attentions of succeeding sultans turned away from Jerusalem, and the city began a slow decline that lasted until waves of immigration in the late 1800s began to turn the city’s fortunes. Still, centuries of Ottoman neglect and the tumult of the 20th century couldn’t diminish the magnitude of Suleiman’s accomplishments. Nearly 500 years after their completion, the walls of Jerusalem stand firm, an enduring testament to the devotion of a single man, and an inspiration to the countless pilgrims who have stood in the shadows of their battlements.
  3. Wikipedia
    Walls of Jerusalem
    In the 16th century, during the reign of the Ottoman Empire in the region, Sultan Suleiman the Magnificent decided to fully rebuild the city walls, partially on the remains of the ancient walls. The construction lasted from 1535–1538, and these are the walls that exist today.
    An inscription in Arabic from the reign of Suleiman the Magnificent states:

    Has decreed the construction of the wall he who has protected the home of Islam with his might and main and wiped out the tyranny of idols with his power and strength, he whom alone God has enabled to enslave the necks of kings in countries (far and wide) and deservedly acquire the throne of the Caliphate, the Sultan son of the Sultan son of the Sultan son of the Sultan, Suleyman

There are other YouTube videos posted by Robert Mawire.

There are important areas that I am perplexed as to how Robert Mawire reached his conclusions.

I will let you review his videos and judged which areas your thoughts and conclusions coincide with his.

And, the areas where your soul and spirit of God remains unsure or even troubled.


Again, please let us not not be flippant with what Robert Mawire is saying.

To me, Robert is not talking about end of times.  But, the end of an Age, the Age of Grace.

And, if the numbers are way off, one should keep in mind a couple of things.

And, those are:

  1. Dispensation is a time bracket
    • No one knows the time
    • But, each one of us should have a perception of what he or she is called to do
  2. Terms of Grace is an important and material fact of life and our interaction with each other

Mattie Montgomery Tells His Story

  1. If I want to leave people better than how I find them, I can not be taking from them, I have to give to them
  2. God is always in the background, working on me,
  3. I did not have anything to give to anyone, and so I had to leave everything I had behind


Todd White, Mattie Montgomery, Ben Fitzgerald and Daniel Hagen Q&A

Todd White

    1. .. May give you a spirit of wisdom and revelation in your knowledge of Him. I ask that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened, so that you may know the hope of His calling, the riches of His glorious inheritance in the saints, and the surpassing greatness of His power to us who believe. He displayed this power in the working of His mighty strength … ( Ephesians 1:18 )
    2. Continue in Him
      • I have written these things to you about those who are trying to deceive you.   And as for you, the anointing you received from Him remains in you, and you do not need anyone to teach you. But just as His true and genuine anointing teaches you about all things, so remain in Him as you have been taught. ( 1 John 2:26-28 )
    3. Studying the Bible without the Holy Spirit teaches you only Head Knowledge
    4. I not only want to read the Bible, I want your word to read me
      • So that my sins and lies can be illuminated
    5. All of the gifts are a byproduct of being a son

Mattie Montgomery

  1. If and when is it right to talk about Eternity and Hell, when Evangelizing
    • We evangelize because we are conscious of Hell and Eternity
    • Growing our Church will not sustain us
    • If one loses focus of hell, we will lose our Passion
    • Conscious of Eternal blows wind in our sail\soul
    • They may never get another opportunity to hear the Gospel
    • Met 3 young men
    • One said he did not need prayer, as he was his own God
    • There was an accident and the lost man lost his Life
    • The reality of Eternity and the Closeness of Eternity has to be central to the Evangelizing Lifestyle



  1. Encounter
    • Living God
  2. Faith
    • It does not take Faith to believe God exist
    • It takes Faith to to put your Life in his hands and not know what he will do with it
    • Direction without Encounter is Religion
  3. Altar in front of the throne of God, because the place of encounter is the place of Worship
  4. There is a purpose for encounter and that purpose is Transformation
  5. The Servant’s Obedience
    • The Lord has given me an Instructed tongue ( Isaiah 50:4 )
      • The Lord GOD has given Me the tongue of disciples, That I may know how to sustain the weary one with a word.
        He awakens Me morning by morning, He awakens My ear to listen as a disciple.
        The Lord GOD has opened My ear; And I was not disobedient Nor did I turn back.…

David’s Tabernacle

Amos 9:11-12

In that day will I raise up the tabernacle of David that is fallen, and close up the breaches thereof; and I will raise up his ruins, and I will build it as in the days of old:

That they may possess the remnant of Edom, and of all the heathen, which are called by my name, saith the LORD that doeth this.

Acts 15:16-17

“‘After this I will return,

and I will rebuild the tent of David that has fallen;

I will rebuild its ruins,

and I will restore it,

that the remnant of mankind may seek the Lord,

and all the Gentiles who are called by my name,

says the Lord, who makes these things known from of old.

1 Corinthians 10:32-33

Give no offense to Jews or to Greeks or to the church of God, just as I try to please everyone in everything I do, not seeking my own advantage, but that of many, that they may be saved.

Ephesians 2:14-16

For He Himself is our peace, who has made both one, and has broken down the middle wall of separation, having abolished in His flesh the enmity, that is, the law of commandments contained in ordinances, so as to create in Himself one new man from the two, thus making peace, and that He might reconcile them both to God in one body through the cross, thereby putting to death the enmity.

The daughter of My dispersed ones,
Shall bring My offering.

God’s will (  by David Patty )

Galatians 5:25

Since we are living by the Spirit, let us follow the Spirit’s leading in every part of our lives

1 Thessalonians 4:3

For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication

1 Peter 2:13-15 ( Submission to Authority )

For the Lord’s sake, submit to all human authority—whether the king as head of state, or the officials he has appointed.
For the king has sent them to punish those who do wrong and to honor those who do right.
It is God’s will that your honorable lives should silence those ignorant people who make foolish accusations against you.

Acts 13:2-4  (Paul’s First Missionary Journey)

While they were worshiping the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said,
“Set apart for me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.”
Then after fasting and praying they laid their hands on them and sent them off.


Acts 15:28 ( The Letter to the Gentile Believers )

…”Therefore we have sent Judas and Silas, who themselves will also report the same things by word of mouth. “For it seemed good to the Holy Spirit and to us to lay upon you no greater burden than these essentials: that you abstain from things sacrificed to idols and from blood and from things strangled and from fornication; if you keep yourselves free from such things, you will do well. Farewell.”

Acts 16:6-10 – Kept by the Spirit

And they went through the region of Phrygia and Galatia, having been forbidden by the Holy Spirit to speak the word in Asia.
And when they had come up to Mysia, they attempted to go into Bithynia, but the Spirit of Jesus did not allow them.
So, passing by Mysia, they went down to Troas.
And a vision appeared to Paul in the night: a man of Macedonia was standing there, urging him and saying, “Come over to Macedonia and help us.” And when Paul had seen the vision, immediately we sought to go on into Macedonia, concluding that God had called us to preach the gospel to them.

  1. If you are working in this area, I think you need some protection.  You really need some kind of covering.
    There are some kind of forces that you need to be protected from.  That is not going to help you, it isn’t helping you right now.
  2. You already have what you need
  3. Help someone else get free


Pastor Robert Morris

  1. Is it possible that you are losing some battles because you are not
    • building up yourself spiritually
    • you are not putting up the whole armor
    • using your spirit to pray, you are only praying through your soul


Dave Patty

  1. God makes his plan in broad sweeps
  2. Gods reveals his will in steps
  3. God waits for our obedience before revealing the next step
  4. He might tell you about his destination, but waits for you
  5. If you for looking for the whole plan, you likely will not find it
  6. How do we discern his will
    • His Moral Will
    • The Spirit of God
      • The Spirit of God said ( Acts 13:2-4 )
      • Seemed good to us and the Spirit ( Acts 15:28 )
      • Having being kept by the Spirit ( Acts 16:6-10 )
    • The Mind of God
    • People of God
      • But with those who take advice is wisdom ( Proverbs 13:10 )
      • Without counsel purposes are disappointed: but in the multitude of counsellors they are established ( Proverbs 15:22 )
    • Sovereignty of God
      • I do not want you to be unaware, brothers and sisters, that I planned many times to come to you (but have been prevented from doing so until now) . [ Romans 1:13 ]
      • But I will remain in Ephesus until Pentecost; for a wide door for effective service has opened to me, and there are many adversaries ( 1 Corinthians 16:9 )


Joseph Sciambra

  1. God humbles us, and reminds us sometimes of our past, to bring us closer to him, and to let us know how much we need him



Here is Joe Jordan’s Salutation to our one and only God…

ברוך אתה ה’ אלהינו, מלך העולם…

Barukh ata Adonai Eloheinu, melekh ha’olam…

Blessed are You, LORD our God, King and Ruler of the universe...”


Zac Hicks On “God Inhabits the praise of his people”


Early this week, I listened in on one of Pastor Jim Cymbala’s sermons.

Pastor Jim used the phrase “God inhabits the praise of his people” that I wanted to cross reference and so I googled it.

Zac Hicks

And, as often happens these days, someone else Googled on same and chose to consolidate existing thoughts or dig deeper for new meanings.

Zac is one of those people and here he writes and later speaks about it.
