Evangelist Alveda C. King: Remembering the legacy of MLK #MLK50

April 4th, 2018

Today, April 4, 2018, marks the 50th anniversary of the legacy of Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. I, and other family members and many friends are prayerfully joining his heirs; Martin III, Dexter, Bernice and granddaughter Yolanda Renee, as well as their spouses; as we all, including The President, commemorate the momentous day. Then, tomorrow we will join the US Park Service in celebrating the newly proclaimed MLK National Historic Park.

Fifty years ago, my “Uncle ML” left this world after being gunned down in a grim assassination. Yet his legacy lives on; not attached to the bullets, but rather pointing to Christ’s victory on the cross.

The number 50 represents Jubilee; a season of grace and freedom. Ultimately Jesus won freedom for everyone. In following Christ, MLK embraced the totality of Agape Love for humanity.

Shortly before his death on April 4, 1968, in his 1967 Christmas sermon, MLK pointed out the foundation of his vision: “And when we truly believe in the sacredness of [the] human personality, we won’t exploit people, we won’t trample over people with the iron feet of oppression, we won’t kill anybody.”

If Uncle MLK were here today, he would likely remind us that we can “live together as brothers [and sisters]; rather than perish together as fools.

I believe that “Uncle ML” and Aunt Coretta would be blessed to know that their three remaining adult children and granddaughter are walking toward a path of not being judged by the color of their skin, but rather to be embraced as beloved members of the one blood human race of Acts 17:26.

By denouncing racism, violence and hurtful human deeds today and in the days ahead; by embracing nonviolent actions of a “One Blood Human Race” with our words and behavior, we can march towards a brighter day. We must agree to “value the human personality” from the womb to the tomb.

Finally, MLK was an imperfect and repentant human being who served a perfect God. Today, I believe my uncle would encourage us all to turn from the glittering and deceptive lights of the world and seek after the truth and light of God.

When we do this, Jubilee will dawn in our lives, and freedom will truly ring.

An Unlikely Yet Timely Message for Easter: A Taboo #metoo

March 29th, 2018

Depending on your theology, or even lack thereof, we are in Resurrection/Easter season. Rather than address the debates that often ensue around the topic; ie. Did Constantine graft Christian Holy Days onto idolatry ridden feast days? I’m trying to be bold enough to approach the repentance factor that Christ brings to us beyond the Cross and Resurrection.

Dare we consider or even mention a devastating yet all too common practice among saints and sinners in the midst of observance of Easter season which celebrates the birth, ministry, crucifixion and victorious resurrection of Jesus Christ? As the question arises, we might ask another: What better time is there for repentance than Easter? Of course, every time is the right time to turn away from sin. Yet this timely message below cries out to be heard now.

Sadly, there is a taboo #metoo movement in the household of faith. At “#ChurchMeToo Movement: A Prophetic Alert to the Body of Christ,” Johnny Enlow of Santa Clarita, CA writes about sexual abuse in the Body of Christ.

In a few days, little children all over the world will be singing a familiar church song: “He [Jesus] Arose.” Yes, Jesus arose and is alive today, softly and tenderly praying for us to turn away from sin. At AlvedaKing.com we proclaim the gospel of Jesus Christ. We also confront the lie of the human race being divided into separate races which breeds the sin of racism. We are not color blind. We are created in living color. Acts 17:26 truly proclaims that we are One Blood.

At CivilRightsfortheUnborn.com we deal with the sin of abortion. Johnny Enlow confronts the sin of sexual abuse. What sins are you battling with or hiding today? Easter is a great time to repent and be reconciled to Christ.

Repent from sin. Return to God!

Much is occurring during this Jubilee season; marked by the number 50. This is the 50 year landmark of the legacy of my uncle, Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. This is the season of the premier of the life of his brother, my father Rev. AD Williams King. (Trailer)

Ultimately it is the everlasting season to celebrate Jesus!

Happy Easter/Resurrection Day. Please pray for America and the world, every day.

50 Years After, MLK’s Dream Still Lives On

March 20th, 2018

180320 blog imageOn April 4, 2018 the world will remember the life and legacy of my Uncle Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. whose life on earth was cut short by an assassin’s bullet 50 years ago. Please pray for the immediate family of MLK/CSK during this sensitive time.

As a member of “The King Family Legacy” and of the Board of Trustees for The Martin Luther King, Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change founded by his widow, the valiant Mrs. Coretta Scott King and other members of our family, I will be joining many of those who will commemorate the MLK legacy both publicly and privately.

Along with the official ceremonies in Atlanta hosted by The King Center and the new MLK National Historic Park, all taking place April 4-9, 2018, there will be a release of a new cover to the original song LET FREEDOM RING [with prayer], as well as a release of a new documentary.

In commemoration of the 50th Anniversary of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s assassination, Sunwise Media and Positive Promotions, LTD are set to debut an advance televised documentary screening of UNSOLVED HISTORY: LIFE OF A KING on March 25, in Atlanta.

The one hour documentary narrated by Emmy Award Winning Newsman Ed Gordon, presents exclusive interviews with King family members and other courageous men and women of America’s 20th Century Civil Rights Movement.

For air dates and times visit: sunwisemedia.com/unsolvedhistory

Dr. King once asked: “Where do we go from here?”

On this 50th Anniversary, as the MLK tributes and testimonies are revisited, we must pray that Uncle ML’s timeless message of God’s Agape Love resonates in the days ahead. With Agape Love as the key to humanity’s problems, we – men, women and children of every nation, tongue and tribe – must embrace the One Blood/One Human Race of Acts 17:26. We’re not separate races; we’re not color blind. Let’s move forward in loving and living color; not only in memory of Rev. Dr. King; but more so in prayerful tribute to the God that MLK served.

“For this is how God loved the world: God gave his one and only Son, so that everyone who believes in him will not perish but have eternal life. God sent his Son into the world not to judge the world, but to save the world through him.”
John 3:16-17 NLT

As MLK 50 Looms, Babes and Millennials Proclaim – We Are Not Color Blind!

March 14th, 2018

As we approach the April 4th 50th Anniversary of the earthly departure of my Uncle Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., may we truly seek after the truths he sought to teach us:

“We must learn to live together as brothers [and sisters], or perish together as fools.” Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

Someone texted me a social media clip from a young man recently.

The #s caught my attention with a message I learned at my ancestors’ knees. We are One Blood, One Human Race.

Acts 17:26 “And [God has] made of one blood all nations of [humans] to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation…”

While I’m not into calling people fools, we can acknowledge that there is truth in what young Joel Patrick speaks: “If you don’t see color… you are blind. If you judge only by color… you are a fool.”

In context, we can also agree with President Donald John Trump when he says that we are all red blooded [people]: “It’s time to remember that old wisdom our soldiers will never forget, that whether we are black or brown or white, we all bleed the same red blood…”

The skin color war is at the root of human dissension and division; causing escalating wars, pain and death. There is a “three headed monster” at the heart of these race wars. Racism, Sexual Perversion and Reproductive Genocide work together to destroy our lives. Resist them in prayer and positively defined action.

Three Headed Monster Revised4

As an important footnote, with looming midterm and 2020 elections, let’s not forget in the lofty towers of government and on society’s highways and byways, that minority votes and presence at the tables count. It will always be a grievous error to overlook and or deliberately exclude participation of a people group because of skin color bias. Minority votes count!

Again, Acts 17:26 says that we are One Blood. In that context, we are the Human Race. Skin Color is a gift from God. We are not color blind; we are not designed or intended for racial division; we are praying to unite in love and in living color.

Together, as The Human Race, with the help of God, we can overcome the darkness. Pray children, pray.

Statement on the passing of Dr. Billy Graham

February 21st, 2018

Atlanta, GA. – “Dr. Billy Graham has departed earth to receive A Warrior’s Reward. Many will note the many contributions of the life and legacy of Dr. Billy Graham today in honor and recognition of this great Christian warrior who has reached millions of lives for Christ during his 99 years on earth.

“As a fledgling freelance journalist in the 20th century, I interviewed Dr. Graham who was in Atlanta to conduct a crusade. As he spoke, he admonished me to “pray without ceasing.” As he spoke, his brilliant blue eyes were glowing with a heavenly brightness. As I naively asked how anyone could pray 24/7; he quietly responded in a reverberating voice: “I’m praying for you right now.” This unforgettable experience changed my life forever.

“The lives of my family have been personally intertwined with those of Dr. Graham and his family throughout our lifetime. My “Uncle ML,” Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. ministered with Dr. Billy in New York at Madison Square Gardens during the 1950s. Together, in living color, bridging the racial divide, they debunked the colorblind myth; revealing the mystery of Acts 16:26 – One Blood, One Human Race. They are pictured together during their meeting. The photo is printed with permission in my book KING TRUTHS.

MLK with Billy Graham

“My friend Victoria Hearst, founder of Praise Him Ministries and granddaughter of legendary newspaper publisher William Randolph Hearst has shared with me her grandfather’s role in bringing Dr. Graham’s ministry to the forefront in the media.

“One prayer warrior, known as Mrs. Edwards, felt a supernatural compulsion to call media mogul Hearst and tell him about Billy Graham. Hearst was so impressed that he ordered his massive press machine to “puff up” the then young Christian evangelist Billy Graham. The rest is now history.

“Today I join America and the world in prayers for the Graham family; not just mourning their loss, as Dr. Graham will be sorely missed; but also celebrating the life of this precious man of God.”

Often we discover that throughout history some of our greatest “minds” have never been limited to one scope of creativity. Thus the poet can also chart the stars, the physicist can paint remarkable portraits, the composer can weld the surgeon’s scalpel; the architect can program computers; and so on and so forth. These gifts are not confined to genre, skin color, class, nurture, nature, age or gender. They are divine blessings to humanity.

Alveda King: Appointment to Frederick Douglass Commission is “a blessing”

February 9th, 2018

Priests_for_Life_banner

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Date: February 8, 2018

Contact: Leslie Palma
732-757-9087

ATLANTA — Alveda King, Director of Civil Rights for the Unborn for Priests for Life, said she is grateful and honored to have been named to serve on the Frederick Douglass Bicentennial Commission by President Trump.

“Black History Month is full of surprises this year,” Ms. King said. “President Donald J. Trump has honored one of my heroes, Frederick Douglass, by forming the Frederick Douglass Bicentennial Commission. It’s a blessing to serve America as a new member of the Commission.”

The 16-member Commission was established by an act of Congress and signed into law by President Trump last November.

Douglass was born into slavery in 1818 on Maryland’s Eastern Shore and rose to become one of the nation’s most eloquent and passionate abolitionists. He led the effort to allow black men – including two of his sons — to fight in the Union Army and, through his friendship with President Lincoln, ensured that emancipation of the slaves was a goal of the Civil War. He also served in various capacities under Presidents Rutherford, Hayes, Harrison and Grant.

Father Frank Pavone, National Director of Priests for Life, noted that the appointment was one of several honors Ms. King has received from President Trump. She was invited to the White House Rose Garden ceremony in May 2016 when the president signed an executive order on religious liberty. Ms. King was with the president a year ago when he toured the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African-American History and Culture. She also was on board Air Force One in January when President Trump established the Martin Luther King Jr. National Historic Site, Georgia’s first national historic park.

“The appointment to the Frederick Douglass Bicentennial Commission is an honor for Alveda King and it’s an honor for our Priests for Life family of ministries,” Father Pavone said. “We are very proud that she will be providing input on ways to honor such an important American leader.”

Presidential Appointment, Black History Tour, Ram in Thicket, CBC Fallout signal One Blood Racial Reconciliation

February 8th, 2018

180208 blog image

Starting with a new Presidential Appointment, Black History Month is full of surprises this year.

President Donald J. Trump has honored one of my heroes, Frederick Douglass with the empowering of “The Frederick Douglass Bicentennial Commission.” It’s a blessing to serve America as a new member of the Commission.

Moving ahead, let’s reflect on the President’s campaign promises to address racism by ensuring us that “when we give everyone a great America; safety, security, a reason to belong, that will serve the issue.” The President also stated early on in his post as Commander in Chief, that: “No matter what color our skin is, we all bleed red.” His insight into the One Blood truth, coupled with his frequent reminders that: “We don’t serve government, we serve God; in God we trust” are encouraging to say the least.

The month started off with the launch of my annual Black History Tour; this time from Titusville, FL – new home of Priests for Life where I’m Director of Civil Rights for The Unborn. It was a blessing to visit local schools and the Titusville campus of Eastern Florida State College.

Meanwhile, the Congressional Black Caucus sat down on the job during President Trump’s inspiring State of the Union Address. The petulant actions of the majority of The CBC are crippling the dreams of America, and must be addressed; expect to hear more from activists for genuine social justice this month.

It was also a blessing to give a “Black History Shout Out” at the 2018 Rose Day Rally in Oklahoma.

It’s also important to note that while we are One Blood/One Race (Acts 17:26), the Black/African American Community still celebrates a month of educating the masses regarding many notable contributions of Blacks in America that are unknown and undocumented in certain historical annals. These efforts are designed to unite us; never to divide us. Herein is a key to unlocking Racial Reconciliation.

There’s been a flurry of discourse regarding the Dodge Ram commercial featuring the voice of MLK with community service as a theme. On a positive note, many are saying that the ad sparked them to find the entire MLK speech and listen to it. That’s millennials for you; ever seeking truth. The line about “a heart to serve” with the ultrasound of the baby’s heartbeat was definitely a kind of Ram in the Bush “aha” moment.

Coming up this month:
White House Black History Event
Launch of King Family Legacy Library at Millennium Gate Museum

Finally, please remember to pray for America, and watch out for KING TRUTHS and the upcoming Roe v Wade movie.

POTUS IS CORRECT: AMERICANS ARE DREAMERS TOO!

January 31st, 2018

180131 blog image

America, let’s be encouraged by the POTUS reminder that it’s “in God we trust.” And it’s time to abandon hate and embrace hope. It’s time to abandon fear and embrace faith.

In his remarkable State of the Union address, President Donald John Trump reminded us that “Americans are dreamers too.”

The POTUS SOTU address is an encouraging and hopeful word for all Americans; and to hopeful people everywhere. President Trump’s dream is the American Dream; remindful of The Dream of my Uncle MLK:

“I have a Dream… [that] we will be able to speed up that day when all of God’s children, black men and white men, Jews and Gentiles, Protestants and Catholics, will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual: “Free at last! Free at last! Thank God Almighty, we are free at last!” Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.

What is needful now in the wake of the SOTU address is a tremendous effort on social media and all channels of communication to let America, “we the people,” and the general public hear, see and know about all of the positive acts and deeds President Trump is spearheading; even against the odds.

Some takeaways from the SOTU address:

-Speech a plus for all Americans; great again
-Prison reform
-Job readiness
-Lower unemployment
-Entrepreneurial Opportunities
-Path to citizenship for immigrants to allow Americans safety and job security during process
-Welfare to workfare
-Tax reform benefitting rich and poor
-American people are making America great again
-Energy independence

Who wouldn’t applaud lower taxes, lower unemployment, end of terrorists killing of our children, religious terrorism, and more? Who wouldn’t? Well, some didn’t; still clinging to being fearful and tearful. Please pray for America!

Also the addition of new vocational schools and envision centers will equip our youths to bring forth productive futures. There’s also awakening truths for all Americans for renewed family stability from the womb to the tomb; and the reality of being One Blood/One Human Race to consider. We are no longer color blind, or blind in any way. Jesus gives sight to the blind. We now see the truth and are advancing in living color:

171019 blog image2

Matthew 4:16 “…The people living in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of the shadow of death a light has dawned.”

There is another true saying: “If a person doesn’t work, the person doesn’t eat.” I believe that people who are able to work should work and would be blessed to have gainful employment and the opportunity to participate in making America great again.

President Trump says it this way:
“Americans are Dreamers too. If you work hard, believe in yourself and the American dream, you can achieve anything. God bless America.”

Friends, there is light at the end of the tunnel. With faith, hope and love as our guide, America will be great again.
