(End Times Messenger Emmanuel Barbee)

Posted in Community with tags , , on May 8, 2017 by Mr. Emmanuel Barbee

I created the Grass Roots Community Activist Movement as a platform to connect with other spiritual like minded individuals from across the United States and around the globe to share our gifts, talents, and skills with one another. My goal is to mobilize all of my active group members from several social networks so that we can move forward as a collective group and eventually move GRCAM from a virtual Christian organization into a real Christian business starting in Chicago.

GRCAM is a virtual Christian socialist organization. A Christian socialist is a form of socialism based on the teachings of Jesus. Many Christian socialists believe that capitalism is idolatrous and rooted in greed, social inequality, and institutionalized racism which most Christian denominations consider a mortal sin. We will focus on what we stand for: love, compassion, social justice, and liberation theology. Jesus commanded us to be a witness to others not just for us to read his word, but to activate social change in the world according to Luke4:18-19. We will be committed to the healing ministry of Jesus by showing compassion to inner city youth and their families which will promote dignity to the people and community we will serve. It’s to much senseless killing going on with these firearms and at least this can be a start. Our vision is to respond to the social and spiritual needs of our inner-city youth and their families within the African American community and throughout the African Diaspora.

My revised book “The Solution For Black America: Reclaiming, Rebuilding, And Restoring The Urban Ghettos In America” second edition is the foundation of my organization. Once I generate enough capital from my book sell or have my management team in place (10 individuals within the within the United States who have read my story and meet the qualifications that I’m looking for which are as follows: Investors, Business Partners, Christian Entrepreneurs, Social Entrepreneurs, and Philanthropist, who will work with me in setting up and starting my nonprofit and my for profit organization) then I will start the Grass Roots Community Activist Institute in Chicago. We will offer quality programs and services, social activities, and live events that will help improve our inner-cities in America. We will offer private employment to our clients and members based on our budget and sponsorship. In time we will offer a second chance program for ex-offenders, former gang members, and homeless individuals.

It’s my hope to make Chicago a model first before we expand to 10 other cities within 10 states. I also want to build alliances with African Immigrants, Afro-Brazilians, Afro-Caribbean, Non-black sympathizers as well as all Christian denominations, moderate Muslims, and secular people who are interested in working with me in turning my vision into a reality. I also hope that GRCAM will become the Hub in the Midwest for emerging artists and upcoming black entrepreneurs. Once we’re established in America I plan on having African Immigrants in America to assist me in setting up chapters in 10 countries in Africa.

We will go through the proper channels with their government to start his (NGO) Non-government organization/private service based business. We will offer private employment to our clients and members based on our budget and sponsorship. We will provide infrastructure for clean running water, agricultural technology to feed the people, and most of all help improve the African economy as well as educate the people about the problems with Capitalism and show them an alternative GRCAM. In time we will expand to Brazil and the Caribbean Islands. Our community will be built on values of faith, community service, stewardship.

GRCAI will help our members to use their individual talents in our performing arts programs in order to nurture their growth while offering volunteer services within the black community. The purpose of our youth programs is to help the youth realize that there is more to life than killing, drugs, sex, and money. Our youth programs will focus on character building, morals, values and behaviors in young people ages 7-19; by using creative and innovative methods to excite, inspire, capture and ignite young people both spiritual and secular youths. Our goal is to enable young people to understand and recognize who Jesus is and what it is to live for Him. GRCAM is about making our urban community better, healthier, and stronger. GRCAM is also about building a strong unified global community and providing basic resources to families that want to utilize our programs and services. Our commitment is to strengthen the black family and provide quality programs and services, which will help improve the lives of our members no matter their gender, age, race, or religion.

My organization is private in order for me to weed out people who don’t care about our inner-city youth, their families, or the black community. No harden criminals, No active gang members, No urban terrorist, No pedofiles, and no half steppers allowed in my organization this is how I get down. GRCAM is open to all ordinary law abiding citizens, all racial groups, and undiscovered artist. This is my contribution back to my community, society and throughout the African Diaspora.

What We Believe

A Habitation of God through His Spirit. A building or dwelling place to reveal God’s glory and Power. ( Ephesians 2: 21-22)
A community of extravagant lovers of God and each other. (Mathew 22: 37-39)
A house of prayer of all nations. (Mathew 21:13)
A community of worshipers, who prevail by worshiping in Spirit and truth. (John 4: 23-24)
A community of defenders and lovers of the truth. (Jude 3, 2 Thessalonians 2: 10)
A community of deliverance and healing. (Luke 4:18)
Worship is central for GRCAM, because worship is important to God. (John 4: 24) Worship that really pleases God is “wholehearted” worship. (Psalm 86: 12)
The Word of God has a place of prominence in GRCAM. We believe it to be powerful and able to change people’s lives. (Hebrews 4: 12)
The black family is very important in GRCAM. We believe God wants to strengthen our families in these days. (Malachi 4: 6)
In GRCAM, we are a “family” Families are committed to each other in love. We are committed to strengthen and build up each other in the faith, and to help each other realize their full potential in God.

GRCAM Statement of Faith

With a basic understanding that the Holy Spirit has been sent into the world, in one aspect, to lead the church into all truth, [John 16:13] we humbly submit to His lead seeking for understanding. As God is taking us from glory to glory our heart is set on learning, not fighting over doctrine. Though our heart is not bent on wars over doctrine we do believe there are certain doctrine that we as Christians must agree on, here is our stand on these basic truths.

Jesus, The Christ

“By Him all things were created, both in the heavens and on earth,” (Col 1:16). Jesus is not only the Christ, but also the Creator, of all that exist. Jesus is the purpose of God in all creation; He is our heavenly Father’s desire for creation. Our heavenly Father’s desire is to see Him in all things (Ephesians 1:10), even in the face of redeemed man himself (Col 3:9-11). He was before all, not created, but with our heavenly Father from the beginning, the very Word of God (John 1:1-3).

Jesus Christ, who pre-existed with God in the form of God, emptied Himself to become fully a man that He might be the propitiatory sacrifice for the sins of mankind (Phil 2:5-11). Through His propitiatory sacrifice made on the cross, all who believe in Him and His sacrifice have their sins remitted and are restored to fellowship with God (Heb 9:11-15). As a result of this grace man also becomes a partaker of His very nature (2 Pet 1:4).
Jesus was born of a virgin, by the seed of the Holy Spirit. His virgin birth is a testimony that only the Spirit can beget that, which is Spirit. Those of the new creation are not solely of human origin, but are born from above by the Holy Spirit, partakers of God’s nature by way of Christ dwelling in our hearts by faith (Ephe 3:17). The resurrection of Jesus’ physical body after His crucifixion was literal, as will be the resurrection of both the just and the unjust on the Day of Judgment.

“There is one God, and mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus” (1 Tim 2:5). He is the gateway to God, and the way given by God for restored fellowship and communion not man, doctrine, or spirit can make way for approach to God. It also is a supreme presumption for any person or institution to seek to be mediator for others in place of Christ Jesus Himself (Heb 5:4-6).

The apostolic commission was for the church to labor until Christ was formed in His church (Gal 4:19-20). To manifest the sweet aroma of the knowledge of Him in every place, representing Him in all things. We consider it the church’s primary focus to love, adore and esteem Jesus in every way. The Grass Roots Community Activist Movement is committed to seeking His face, not losing our pure and simple devotion to Christ, as God’s grace would allow us to remain devoted.

Man

We believe that God created man from the dust of the earth, without sin or the knowledge of good and evil (Gen 2:7-8). The first man, Adam, transgressed the command of God, and as God had warned the process of death entered him and all of his descendents because of that one transgression. Therefore, all have sinned and are worthy of death mans very nature being in opposition with God. Our unrighteousness keeps us from approaching a Holy God; therefore we are in need of the atoning sacrifice of Jesus. Through Jesus, we not only can come before the Throne of Grace boldly, but we may approach it boldly because our confidence is not in us, but in Jesus (Heb 4:14-16).

Atonement

Those who trust in Jesus Christ have access to the Throne of Grace by His sacrifice and by His sacrifice alone (Heb 4:14-16). Good works offered for the purpose of acceptance, standing or approval are therefore an affront to the cross by which all of these things were gained for us by Jesus. Good works are not offered for His approval, but for His joy and glory, and must be offered through His Son in obedience to Him (Eph 2:8-10). Therefore, the goal of our service is obedience and not sacrifice (1Sam 15:22-23).

The New Birth

Believing in our hearts that Jesus is the Son of God and in His propitiation made for our salvation results in a regeneration and renewal that constitutes our new birth into new creations (Rom 10:8-13). Although immediate perfection is not realized, we by faith do journey from Glory to Glory believing God to transform us into Christ image (2 Cor 3:18). Being born again implies a new beginning not an ending (2Cor 5:14-17). Our belief is that if we trust God and obey Him He is able to make us what we could never be, transforming us by His power and process not by our striving. It is true that we may be able to change our outward behavior for limited periods of time, but only God can change mans heart and nature and this He must do.

Faith

“Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen” (Heb 11:1).
In essence faith is when those things we can’t see with our natural eye become a reality or (substance) to us. Though we can’t see them with our natural eye the eyes of our understanding (heart) are illuminated (Eph 1:15-21). True faith opens the door for men to release trust, belief, confidence, expectation and full persuasion. All humans came into this world with a measure of faith (Rom12: 3). Where we use this faith is up to us. God’s desire is that we release our faith in Him and not ourselves for hope and assurance. True faith should point us to Him, not other men. Paul the apostle said, “and my message and my preaching were not in persuasive words of mans wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power, that your faith should not rest on the wisdom of men, but the power of God” (1Cor 2:4-5).

The Authority of Scripture

We understand that there are many practices and doctrines that are considered orthodox which do not contradict the scriptures, but which are not directly addressed in God’s Word. We are committed to giving liberty in the belief and practice of these teachings, but we will endeavor to maintain the simplicity of the biblical testimony and its stated practices as we are given grace to perceive them. We do not accept any spiritual experience as having come from the Holy Spirit that doesn’t have a precedent in scripture. We do not accept any revelation, vision, dream, prophecy or discernment as truth, which contradicts Scripture, or cannot be verified by it. We do not believe that any other writings have the same authority as the Holy Canon of Scripture (2Tim 3:16-17)-(2Pet 1:16-21).

The Lord’s Supper

We acknowledge the ordinance of the Lord’s Supper in remembrance of Jesus and as a testimony of our communion [common-union] with Him in His body, the church (1 Cor 11:23-29). We consider it a holy ordinance, but we do not accept the teaching that communion is for the purpose of remitting sins, which Scripture testifies is based solely in the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross (Heb 9:25-28). We also understand that this ordinance is practiced in remembrance of Christ finished work on the cross. The body, which was for us, carried away our sins. The cup entered us into a new covenant, a covenant of life (1 Cor 11:23-25). This life comes as a result of Him abiding in us by faith. Our belief is that if we have become partakers of His body and Blood [life], see (Lev 17:11), our lives should reflect what they were given on our behalf to do. To take away our sins and enter us into a newness of life, thus partaking in a worthy manner, not denying with our lives, the very thing Jesus said He’s done for us (Rom 6: 4-11).

Water Baptism

We believe that water baptism should be by emersion and accomplished immediately after commitment to the Lordship of Jesus and His atoning sacrifice for sin ( Acts 2:38-39). This ordinance is a personal and public statement of faith in the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ on our behalf. It is a commitment to lay down our lives to be one with, or identified with Him in His death, burial and resurrection (Rom 6:4-6).

Baptism of the Holy Spirit

We believe that the “Baptism with the Holy Spirit” is an additional impartation, which may be subsequent to regeneration, but done by the Lord Himself (Math 3:11). This baptism is accompanied by speaking in tongues as the sign (Acts 2:4 10:44-46 19:6), and a new revelation of Christ’s nature and life within as the evidence. We believe that this gift is available to all who believe, but not essential for salvation or regeneration. The purpose of this baptism is to impart spiritual power to the believer to be a witness (Acts 1:8).

The Second Coming of Jesus

We believe in the literal, physical return of the Lord Jesus Christ to take authority and rule on earth (Acts 1: 9-11). We believe that those who are alive at His return shall be translated up to meet Him in the air. Those who have died in the faith will be resurrected and precede those who are alive in being changed and caught up to be with Him (1 Thess 4:13-18). For those of us who believe and are justified by faith in Christ, His sacrifice on our behalf assures a resurrection and eternal fellowship with God. Those who are not justified face resurrection of eternal Judgment (Jn 5:28-30).
