Abe Cruz: ‘Forever Faith’ – In 14 Ways – http://MercyfulGrace.Blog

Abraham J. Cruz what a pleasure to meet with you in #In14Ways at last. Thank you for giving us this opportunity to get closer to know more about you. We thought this interview would never happen. You are such a busy successful inspiring entrepreneur. If you are not dripped in chocolate (Jay Leno) for your adoring fans, you are dripped in words of inspiration all over your (Forever Faith) brands ..’ So lets get started already in In14Ways ..’

1. How are you today?

I’m Blessed and Great every day, because there is no other option when you see light, and breath air. Amen!!

2. What was life like on millionaire matchmaker when we first saw you

Life at that point was unreal, and unbelievable, because about a year before that I was in prison, and I was told that. I wasn’t going to be able to accomplish anything, or be productive in life. I was in prison being told when to eat and when to sleep.

3. Has Patti changed your life for good with the one in the aftermath

Patti did a great job on working with me, but unfortunately it didn’t work out with the girl I met on the show. She was beautiful, and I hope she is doing well.

4. How has prison affected your focus

It was the biggest blessing of my life, because nothing I have today (physically, spiritually, financially, or mentally) would have come about without hitting rock bottom and going to prison. I was forced to lay on my back, so all I could see was up.

5. Advise for young entrepreneurs

To truly follow their heart and soul, and ask God for direction. Truly believe in God first, and believe in yourself second, and with that combination you can’t lose.

6. Your advise for anyone living a life of crime

Yikes..!! Hurry up and figure out your exit strategy, because I don’t think anybody decides they want to go into a life of crime. Speaking for myself I grew up poor, and wanted a better life for me and my family. And ultimately I know I made the wrong decision, but it was the quickest financial solution to all my financial problems. I would never advise to do it. Remember this… Fast Cash Fast Crash..!!

7. How has faith captured your imagination.

I fully believe in myself. I feel that I will be one of the most powerful men in the world some day, for many different reasons.

8. How have you managed to resolve diversity in America being Latino

I understand at time we are dealing with some racial tension, but I personally do not allow racism, or race, to influence or impact my daily life. I don’t have an ounce of hate in my body, except for idiots. And idiots come in all shapes, sizes, and races. Life overall is about loving, accepting, and encouraging each other.

(MercyfulGrace: Laugh – Laugh – Laugh – Love it !!! Genius. Thank you ..’)

9. Do you believe in after life

Wooh… That’s a good question. The majority of people out there would want me to give a definitive answer, because that’s what is expected in society. But me speaking truthfully, never even gave it a thought. My focus is becoming a better person every day, and doing everything I can to help this world in every way I can. Yes. I believe.

10. Where is home for you

I travel so much. Not sure where home really is…

11. Your ideal get away.

Heading to the beach. Quiet beach. Massage and relaxation all day long… and having sushi. I’m more on the simple side.

12. Who inspires you most

Faith is number one. There’s been a couple of people that triggered some inspiration as well while I was in prison. P.Diddy (Sean John), Jay Cutler (4 time Mr. Olympia), and Jim Rohn (Philosopher).

13. Your greatest legacy will be

That I cared about people. That I lifted up people when they were down.

14. Say a prayer for humanity.

Dear Father God, I come to you for the good and the bad, and today’s specific prayer is to bring humanity together. We are going through some tough, confusing times. Us humans don’t have the answers. So I turn to you, and ask You for direction. I ask you Father God to guide us, because we will only see improvement if we put all our faith in You Father God. I pray this to you Father God in the name of your son Jesus Christ. Amen

End of Interview

Thank you so much for the interview. You are truly a star and a consummate professional. I’ve picked up a few notes here personally. Goes to show. The best things in life are free and what will be will be. Patience is a real glorious virtue. Furthermore, like to add and end on this note: may God bless you real good. Amen !!!

MercyfulGrace Diaries with ‘Bad Religion’ – And The Institution (Part 3) by Aremuorin

Anthony Everest - MercyfulGrace

“A sacred bond. A self fulling prophecy – of the bride and her Groom. Mary Magdalene was the real world – who needed redemption ..” – Anthony Everest

What makes you so HOLY and everyone else a SINNER? #Hypocrit. Some of these people run a business – not a ‘Good Religion’. These folks, who own some of these religious establishments – don’t even know who God is, and have never met him.

They are in there, solely, for the good time, and the money boom. They could care less whom they destroy along the way. #HaveYouForgotten #BadReligion #WhoAmIToJudge. 

Some brands will even endorse them, financially, and tell them what to, and what not say, to their followers – targeting young adolescents (i.e 18 -28) with controversial grooming and foul indoctrination. Bad religion has just been another vehicle just like subliminal suggestive messages – that end up going up round and round in your head like a hook – in music.

Jesus - MercyfulGrace.com

Before you know it, you have a matrix of new recruits, doing the same damage; going viral – set for life, with a sick agenda. These people are vile. They are the real image of lovelessness – ‘the anti christ’, masquerading, as disciples of Jesus and etc. Convinced, they are doing the right thing. I wont’ lie – bad organised religion puts me off. It stinks to a great degree ..’ Lord knows, I need a miracle to keep my spirit from lashing out repeatedly ..’

Anthony Everest & Friends - Halloween - MercyfulGrace.com

I would hate to thrash the efforts of ‘Good Religion’ – out there, but how do you know? Some say, the best approach – is to take what works for you and thrash the rest. Some say, don’t look at the people behind the pulpit, just take, the message. Some say, they go in there – for God, that the folks, behind religion, are irrelevant. I feel different to all this as a Christian. My revelation of Christ does not need, Mary or Joseph or Paul – after the receiving, of the gift, of the Holy Ghost.

MercyfulGrace.com

The Holy Spirit reveals Jesus to me daily, and the purpose, or plan of God; in my life, including those around me ..’. Must be hard – I guess for those, who have not reached state of awareness, yet. The good news, is – you can. God’s love is freely given to all kinds. The Jews, and the Gentiles. He made them all, in every shade, under the sun, and thats why we all need, each other, to reflect, the light, and recognise each other. I don’t claim to be perfect, or a saint. A thing that gives me, a mild fit of an irritation, when those horrid-clowns, lay claim to it. I know, that this revelation, of God’s, loveliness – is unparalled, to any religion I’ve witnessed, experienced, or known.

Anthony Everest - MercyfulGrace.com

I remember, when I hit rock bottom, once or twice, and just wanted to die. I laid down, in my bed waiting for death, on receiving this dire, horrific news, in the post. What happened to me after, was a supernatural – spiritual moment, I’ll never forget, or go into fully.

Anthony Everest - Spring - MercyfulGrace Blog

It solidified my faith, in God, revelation of Jesus and the Holy Spirit. Great things beyond the sky where revealed to me, that only a few eyes, have ever seen. God Is Great and God Is Love*. You can’t question his mercies, because; they are unprecedented daily, and new. Always using the foolish to confound the wise. While he gave us love, he didn’t need you to monopolise it.

God refused to let me die, on that fateful; day. He restored me and refiled my spirit with a supernatural visitation. One of the reasons why you are reading this today ..’ #MercyfulGrace

To Be Continued ..’

MercyfulGrace Diaries with ‘Trust’ – I Still Believe by Aremuorin

@Anthony Everest

I’ve trusted a lot of people in my time (life). Especially, all the wrong people – as they say, in the case of Whitney Houston. However, I’ve learned a whole great deal, about myself, and about the world I’m surrounded with.

Hustlers, ravage every corner of the planet; not just the entertainment industry ..’ I have a new theory. I won’t give you the opportunity to waste my time, twice. Rather, spend that time on productivity.

Even if that means, lying in bed, catching my breath, and counting the stars in the sky. It’s my time well spent.

I saw the light,

and I counted the stars.

Then I said, its alright

Let the music play!

Oh you son’s of a gun ..

I got this ..’

Above the love of God

There can’t be much joy

While I murdered this

ceremony of ploy

You give me poison

not once, not twice

You fed it, to me thrice

I spat and threw it up, in the morn

Cuz Im a child of the most high

Gods Own

You look like devious

Dividing lies, spinning eyes

All over the nigh

But you can’t fool mine

I’m on a spiritual high

Gods Own

I saw the light,

and I counted the stars.

Then I said, its alright

Let the music play!

Oh you son’s of a gun ..

I got this ..’

Above the love of God

There can only be bullshit

You may not, this applaud

But you sure rightly, see it

I still believe in love*.

God is Love and Amen to love.

Well, it took me time

to understand my own song.

For Him. #MercyfulGrace

Oh you son’s of a gun ..

I got this ..’

Stuff never filled up any one. Only the love of God is eternally, satisfying. I know many a millionair who are, prisoners in their own homes, chained, to their millions.

Thats not the life I signed up for, nor envisioned. The love of God set me free, let no, demons tell lies on me. There is nothing above the love of God! If, God is for you, who – can be, against you? If I want to pray, I close my eyes and pray. I don’t need the Pope, to find God!

For many years, I didn’t know what to do – because I’ve heard, so many voices screaming at me, loitering around – needlessly, in my head, telling me; different, brand, new lies. Some of them came from the one’s, I loved, and trusted the most. For the first time –

I found my own voice ..’

God First*.

Jesus is the Son Of God

His name is Hallelujah

There is nothing before,

or ever after him – match worth

He is the reason for the season

The prison he enwrapped us from

He gave us life that we might see

And one day believe in the hope

Took his life in redemption

He became unholy solely for us

Now, rose to life like lazarus

I’m a believer not a deceiver

I need no religion. I found opinion,

Useless to my fortress, in lovelessness

That bound me to chains and blames

Jealousy covering my lovers ears and eyes

I refute this now foolish wisdom they say

I call it redemption a slow gradual fade

It will, as it did, all transgressions paid

I’m a believer not a deciever

I have my head high held in love

I have risen to be a holy wisen

No demons can falter me on wrongs

I have him inside my soul, he won’t go

Love is my only denial – they think

I need them – but I don’t

God is the love I lead

The only love I need

Their’s was given today

Taken tomorrow and I’m too grown

For sorrow carried on a wind blown

To hasten in this new found glory

Jesus Is the Son of God

A tarry faded hastend glaze

Found a way up, way out there

Love emblazoned this raise

I began, to wonder; way out there

I’m a believer not a deciever

God First

I

I see little signs, and little wonders. They are little miracles, I can not explain. They take me heed, they make me meek. I speed to your graces, dumb-founding, finding; me every where I turn.

That’s how much you love me. Your love is amazing, and unfound; like before. #MercyfulGraceAnd as I see, thieves! I see more snakes under the pew, inside; than, under, the green grass, outside ..’.

They just want what you have. So, they would slag you off, to do, just that – attemptedly. But lies, unlike the truth, have an expiry date.

God First

I saw the light,
and I counted the stars.

Then I said, its alright Let the music play!

Oh you son’s of a gun ..

I got this ..’

I know what time it is And I’m walking in my power

This very hour
Let love ignite me

Away from these thieves
Free me from these grieves
I know their hollow depraved ways

Lay a passion of lies; evil says

God First

I saw the light,
and I counted the stars.

Then I said, its alright Let the music play!

Oh you son’s of a gun ..

I got this ..’

Masquerading demons

In light they fade away

My faith is my amour

Surround; my saviour

God Is Love

Your lies have no power

Truth is light
In love it lives
Let love light the day

In it I pray

God First

I saw the light,
and I counted the stars.

Then I said, its alright Let the music play!

Oh you son’s of a gun ..

I got this ..’

God First

God First

God First
