Posted in Community with tags , , on August 31, 2017 by Mr. Emmanuel Barbee

* Mark your calendar for November 10, 2017 is the Grass Roots Community Activist Movement 26 Anniversary.

* I am gifted in the area of research I assist others who have accepted my hand of friendship with finding college scholarships/grants; nonprofit grants; housing; legal services; create basic websites; podcast/webinars and employment on a national level all for free.

Where: Facebook Messenger & Skype my screen name manwell4mankind

Time: 10:00PM -12:00AM Central Time

I created (GRCAM) the Grass Roots Community Activist Movement in 1991 on a site called Gopher in order to connect with other like-minded individuals who are interested in networking with me in order for me to gather support for my cause Help Stop The Genocide In American Ghettos starting in Chicago.

African American from the lower economic class are suffering great harm from senseless violence, high unemployment, mass incarceration, police brutality, drug abuse, high illiteracy, inadequate healthcare and failing school system as a result of institutionalized racism. Our middle class black professionals refuse to work with me, the black churches in my former and current community refuse to allow me to pass out fliers about my book after church services, and established black organizations in my city refuse to heed my ideas. Since 2001 over 4,000 people have killed in Chicago alone as a result Chicago is currently the murder capital in America. Urban violence is a moral issue just like slavery and lynching.

The only thing which is preventing me from starting my Christian organization is the lack of manpower and the capital this is why I turned to social media to get my message out to the public through my Youtube videos, my Social Groups, my Blog Postings, my online talkshow, and now through my revised book “The Solution For Black America: Reclaiming, Rebuilding, And Restoring The Urban Ghettos In America” second edition. In my book I provide a 21st century plan on how my Christian organization will eradicate urban violence while at the same time meet the social needs of the communities and families we will serve if given a chance.

I will not start my business until I have my management team in place or until I generate enough capital from my book sell to hire qualified people to join my team. I am still seeking between 10 to 30 individuals within the United States who have read my story and have the expertise in the following areas: Investors, Business Partners, Christian Entrepreneurs, Social Entrepreneurs and Philanthropist. I am also looking for legitimate artists such as film directors, producers, actors, stage managers, fundraisers, technical directors and marketers who can come to Chicago and join my management team.

Once I have my management team in place and we find a location on the Westside of Chicago then I will start the Grass Roots Community Activist Institute of Chicago. GRCAI will provide quality programs and services to benefit the black community and promote culture retention. GRCAI will operate under 5 separate functions within the African American community.

1. A social service component
2. A Spiritual component (optional for secular people)
3. A Political component
4. An Entertainment component
5. An Entrepreneur component

It’s my hope that the Grass Roots Community Activist Institute of Chicago will become a permanent infrastructure for Chicago Artist who will compete with other cities like Los Angeles, New York, and Atlanta and become the Hub throughout the Mid-west for emerging black artists and upcoming black Christian Entrepreneurs.

The mission of GRCAI spiritual component is to present the everlasting gospel of Jesus Christ to all people groups from a contemporary, urban perspective. GRCAI is a 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 told us to focus on the lease of these in society according to Matthew 25:35-40. He also 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 Luke 4:18-19.

GRCAI is membership based and 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. GRCAI 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.

(Beware OF Prosperity Preachers)

Posted in Community with tags , , on August 29, 2017 by Mr. Emmanuel Barbee

Lord have mercy on Pastor Joel Osteen and other religious leaders in America who have the capital, manpower, and the resources to assist people who are victims of Hurricane Harvey. If I had my Christian organization up and running we would help as many people who want and need our assistants. Touch the hearts and minds of people on my friends list to spread my book information with their friends so that I can recruit brave and smart people to join my management team and also to get my book on the best seller list so that I can do all of the things which I have written in Jesus name.

Prosperity gospel is a belief among some Christians, who hold that financial blessings and physical well-being is the will of God for them, and that faith, positive speech, and donations to religious causes will increase one’s material wealth. Prosperity gospel views the Bible as a contract between God and humans: if humans have faith in God, he will deliver security and prosperity.

The doctrine over emphasizes the importance of giving and material blessings, proposing that the atonement (reconciliation with God) is interpreted to include the alleviation of sickness and poverty, which are viewed as curses to be broken by faith. This is believed to be achieved through donations of money, visualization, and positive thinking.

Christian socialism opposed prosperity theology as heresy and prosperity ministries have come into conflict with other Christian denominations who argue that prosperity theology has little in common with traditional Christian theology. Prominent evangelical leaders, such as Rick Warren, Ben Witherington III, and Jerry Falwell, proposes that prosperity theology promotes the idolatry of money, and others argue that Jesus’ teachings indicate a disdain for material wealth. Jesus’ statement in Mark 10:25 that “It is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle, than for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of God” (KJV) as evidence to oppose such thinking.

Televangelist are often criticized for abusing the faith of their listeners by enriching themselves through large donations. They use a predatory method which appeal to people in financial distress or personal crises. Prosperity theology has been opposed for not adequately explaining the poverty of the Apostles.

For instance, some theologians believe that the life and writings of Paul the Apostle, who is believed to have experienced significant suffering during his ministry, are particularly in conflict with prosperity theology. Cathleen Falsani, religion writer in an opinion piece in the Washington Post, points to the conflict with basic Christian teachings “Jesus was born poor, and he died poor. During his earthly tenure, he spoke time and again about the importance of spiritual wealth and health. When he talked about material wealth, it was usually part of a cautionary tale.”

In the book “Health, Wealth and Happiness”, theologians David Jones and Russell Woodbridge suggest that righteousness cannot be earned and that the Bible does not promise an easy life. They argue that it is inconsistent with the gospel of Jesus and propose that the central message of the gospel should be Jesus’ life, death, and resurrection. Jones and Woodbridge see Jesus’ importance as vital, criticizing the prosperity gospel for marginalizing him in favor of a focus on human need.

Jones criticizes the prosperity theology interpretation of the Abrahamic covenant, God’s promise to bless Abraham’s descendants, arguing that this blessing is spiritual and already apply to all Christians. He also argues that the proponents of the doctrine misconstrue the atonement, criticizing their teaching that Jesus’ death took away poverty as well as sin. He believes that this teaching is drawn from a misunderstanding of Jesus’ life and criticizes John Avanzini’s teaching that Jesus was wealthy as a misrepresentation, noting that Paul often taught Christians to give up their material possessions.

Jesus instructed his followers to focus on spiritual rewards, citing his command in Matthew 6:19–20 “Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven” (KJV). Jones criticizes the doctrine’s view of faith: he does not believe that it should be used as a spiritual force for material gain but seen as selfless acceptance of God. God’s will should have precedence over the will of man, including their desires for wealth, and Christians should recognize the sovereignty of God. Prosperity theology overlook the importance of prayer, prayer should be used for all requests, not simply for financial blessing. Prosperity theology appeals to those who are already in affluent means.

Apostle Matthew Stevens sermon coincide with my story “The Solution For Black America: Reclaiming, Rebuilding, And Restoring The Urban Ghettos In America” second edition. In my revised book I provide a 21st century plan on how my Christian organization will eradicate urban violence while at the same time meet the social needs of the communities and families we will serve if given a chance.

The Grass Roots Community Activist Movement is a new community of Christians sharing God’s love with the world! I use my online talkshow to promote Saints who have Gifts & Ability of Preaching, Teaching, Singing, Talents and Skills, I also promote Christian Businesses, Christian Entrepreneur, and Non-Christians in order to be a blessing to others until my business manifest. I recognize that many ministries do not have the funding to advertise on mainstream media. God has blessed me with the knowledge and the technology to reach the same amount of Christian believers and non-Christian believers on the same scale through social media.

Ministries who desire to grow to another level and those who are being overlooked by so many others to broadcast their ministry have the opportunity through my online talkshow Help Stop The Genocide In American Ghettos. My show is also open to new authors, book clubs, and readers for the sake of promoting literacy and supporting black authors. My show is about brings together in one place, under one roof, some of the nation’s top Black authors, as well as new and aspiring black authors.

I will not start my Christian business until I have my management team in place or until I generate enough capital from my book sell to hire qualified people to join my team. I am still seeking between 10 to 30 individuals within the United States who have read my story and have the expertise in the following areas: Investors, Business Partners, Christian Entrepreneurs, Social Entrepreneurs and Philanthropist.

(Emmanuel Barbee End Times Messenger Called To Restore Black America)

Posted in Community with tags , , on August 23, 2017 by Mr. Emmanuel Barbee

With all of the drama taking place across the United States surely I thought that after 15 years of reaching out to people in my city and online that I could connect with at least 20 individuals who would come forth and work with me in turning my ideas into action not so. I am using social media to spread the vision given to me by my Lord and Savior Jesus. I am called to unite with other Kingdom Builders to reclaim our society and release the roar of Zion to awaken real Christians in this day and age.

I love God but hate religion because religious people are the ones who had Jesus crucified. I am a Kingdom Citizen that believes that ministry flows out of relationship. My assignment is to building a new movement in Black America and in Africa which will ignite this nation and Africa through a miracle only from God himself. It’s my hope that through my story “The Solution For Black America: Reclaiming, Rebuilding, And Restoring The Urban Ghettos In America” second edition God will connect me with brave and smart individuals in America who will come to Chicago and assist me in getting my Christian organization the Grass Roots Community Activist Institute up and running.

GRCAI is a spin off of my virtual Christian organization the Grass Roots Community Activist Movement. GRCAM is a Christ-based virtual organization, my group members walk by faith trusting God in everything we do. GRCAI purpose is to create a safe environment for black males, black females, non-blacks, Christians as well as Non-Christians in order for them to expressed themselves through film making, poetry, singing, stage plays, live music, and more. We will also offer private employment to our members based on our budget and sponsorship. GRCAI is a marketplace ministry which will transform our inner cities in America and around the globe by connecting faith with business to glorify God.

I am seeking between 10 to 30 qualified individuals within the United States who have read my story and have the expertise in the following areas: Investors, Business Partners, Christian Entrepreneurs, Social Entrepreneurs and Philanthropist.

GRCAI will Promote diversity within the black culture from the African American community, the African Immigrant community, the Afro-Brazilian/Afro-Caribbean community and various communities beyond the black community. GRCAI will build cooperative alliances with all Christian denominations, Millennials, Non-black sympathizers, moderate Muslims and secular people who are interested in putting my ideas into action. GRCAI will be crucial to guaranteeing that a wide and diverse range of black voices and others are heard loud and clear. This is what I want to be remembered for trying to do something positive in the black community instead of complaining about the white man, career politicians, and the government. In my business our focus is on recreating Black Wall Street in our urban community. Let my works speak for me as I’m actively striving to be a part of the solution and not the problem.

GRCAI will be membership based and private in order for me to weed out people who don’t care about our inner-city youth, their families, or the black community. Everyone will be screen and must attend our mandatory orientation and sign our community pledge before they can become full members. My pledge is what I have written in my book and is only intended for members only.

(End Times Messenger Emmanuel Barbee: Fighting Against The Urban Plantation In America)

Posted in Community with tags , , on August 21, 2017 by Mr. Emmanuel Barbee

Those who are on my friends list who claim that you don’t know me then get to know me. In sum, I am a spiritual leader, a professional blogger, an online talkradio host, an upcoming social entrepreneur, a new urban author, a community activist and a Kingdom builder.

I came across a video with several pastors who are promoting the NFL Blackout. Mr. Colin Kaepernick took a stand and challenged America to acknowledge institutionalized racism and police brutality within the African American community. As a result he was let go from the NFL. This is a prime example of discrimination when we as black people take a stand against this bias system we are treated under a different standard.

All American citizens have a right to freedom of expression just like any other American citizen. We as black people are bombard with misleading information by mainstream media. We as black people are also divided based on social class, religion, and political affiliation created by the financial elites. African American from the lower economic class are suffering great harm from senseless violence, high unemployment, mass incarceration, police brutality, drug abuse, high illiteracy, inadequate healthcare and failing school system as a result of institutionalized racism.

I discuss these issues in my revised book “The Solution For Black America: Reclaiming, Rebuilding, And Restoring The Urban Ghettos In America” second edition. In my book I provide a 21st century plan on what my Christian organization the Grass Roots Community Activist Institute will do to help eradicate urban violence in the city of Chicago while at the same time meet the social needs of the communities and families they will serve if given a chance.

I sent a friend request to all of those pastors in the video Pastor Debleaire Snell, Pastor Rupert Bushner, Chaplain Andrew Pileggi, Dr. Leslie Pollard, Pastor David Lee, Pastor Adrian Davis, and Pastor Troy Garner. I encourage them to read my story and share my book information just like they did for this protest. This would help me speed up the process to connect with qualified individuals who meet the qualifications I am looking for to come to Chicago and assist me in getting my Christian organization up and running in the city of Chicago and beyond.

I’m just one black man with a plan I can’t do this alone. I am seeking between 10 to 30 individuals who have read my story and who meet the expertise in the following areas: Investors, Business Partners, Christian Entrepreneurs, Social Entrepreneurs and Philanthropist who have read my story and agree with my plan to improve our inner cities in America. I am also looking for legitimate artists such as producers, actors, stage managers, fundraisers, technical directors and marketers. It’s my hope that GRCAI will become a permanent infrastructure for our Artist in Chicago who will compete with other cities like Los Angeles, New York, or Atlanta and become the Hub throughout the Mid-west for emerging black artists and upcoming black Christian Entrepreneurs.

Posted in Community with tags , , on August 20, 2017 by Mr. Emmanuel Barbee

I watched this 20/20 report and was heart broken to see that hate groups continue to remain strong in this day and age. God bless Ms. Heather Heyer for taking a stand in the face of evil. Black Republicans and Black Preachers who help elect President Donald Trump you help play apart in this situation the blood is on your hands and you will be held accountable for your action by your creator in due season.

I am trying to start a positive new movement in Black America which will focus on confronting the self-hatred among African Americans within the black culture. The Grass Roots Community Activist Movement belongs in our inner cities starting in Chicago. GRCAM is open to all racial groups who would like to work with me in helping improve our inner cities in America you don’t have to be black or live in the ghetto all I ask is that you read my story “The Solution For Black America: Reclaiming, Rebuilding, And Restoring The Urban Ghettos In America” second edition.

In my book I provide a 21st century plan on what my Christian organization the Grass Roots Community Activist Institute will do to help eradicate urban violence in the city of Chicago while at the same time meet the social needs of the communities and families they will serve if given a chance. Once I have my management team in place then I will move GRCAM from behind a computer and launch the Grass Roots Community Activist Institute of Chicago.

The only thing which is preventing me from starting my Christian organization is the lack of manpower and the capital this is why I turned to social media to get my message out to the public through my Youtube videos, my Social Groups, my Blog Postings, my online talkshow, and now through my revised book.

In this documentary I learned about the Unite The Right Movement which was a violent protest in Charlottesville, Virginia. On August 11th through August 12th, white nationalist oppose the removal of a statue of Robert E. Lee in Emancipation Park. Protesters included white supremacists, white nationalists, neo-Confederates, neo-Nazis, and various militias. Some of the marchers carried semi-automatic rifles, swastikas, Confederate battle flags, anti-Muslim and anti-Semitic banners and “Trump/Pence” signs.

The rally occurred amidst the backdrop of controversy generated by the removal of Confederate monuments throughout the country in response to the Charleston church shooting in 2015 and growing consensus that confederate monuments belong in museums, not on pedestals.

The event turned violent after protesters from Matt Heimbach and Richard Spencer clashed with counter-protesters from the Antifa movement, leaving 14 injured. On the morning of August 12, Virginia governor Terry McAuliffe declared a state of emergency stating that public safety could not be safeguarded without additional powers. At around 1:45 p.m, James A. Fields linked to white-supremacist groups rammed his car into a crowd of counterprotesters killing Heather Heyer and injuring 19. Attorney General Jeff Sessions described the ramming as domestic terrorism, and authorities began a civil rights investigation to determine if the driver will be tried under hate crime statutes.

President Donald Trump did not denounce white nationalists by name, instead blaming “hatred, bigotry, and violence on many sides.” His statement and his subsequent defenses of it were criticized as implying moral equivalence between the white supremacist marchers and those who protested against white supremacy. The White House clarified his position later, calling out racism and condemning the ideals of the white supremacists, KKK and neo-Nazis. On August 12th President Donald Trump held a press conference, stood by his first remarks “blame on both sides”; these remarks were condemned by politicians from across the political spectrum.
