The Sweet and Sour Of The San Bernardino Run Off Elections

BOTTOMLINE… Publisher’s Commentary By Wallace J. Allen

San Bernardino 6th and 7th wards elected their City Council members in a special election on Tuesday. Bessine Littlefield-Richard won the 6th ward seat and incumbent, Jim Mulvihill won the 7th ward seat. I congratulate them both for executing and winning hard fought campaigns and I fully expect that both will work to the benefit of their constituents and the City!

I do think that all four of the candidates were good and I hope that Roxanne Williams and Scott Beard, the unchosen ones, will continue participating in San Bernardino’s “quest for excellence”. The City needs progressive thinkers and vigilant activists to take advantage of it undeniable resources. A bankrupt San Bernardino is still a better place to live and raise a family than much of the rest of the nation.

San Bernardino’s potential is worth the effort to achieve.  The world is waiting for San Bernardino to develop its Route 66 entertainment strip… San Bernardino is the West Coast transportation hub waiting to happen! Our international airport is ready to ship and receive freight from all over the planet. The warehousing is already here. Inland Empire universities and hospitals have earned international acclaim… The weather and area beauty, snow-capped mountains as a backdrop to sunshine and palm trees, make San Bernardino one of the great places on the planet!

It is important that as we create winners, that we do not allow ourselves to create losers. Ours should not be a “winner take all” atmosphere, especially when we are choosing from people who want to aid in our “quest for excellence”.

As I congratulate Bessine Littlefield-Richard and Jim Mulvihill for their victories, I also congratulate Roxanne Williams and Scott Beard for their efforts and encourage them to continue to participate in San Bernardino’s “quest for excellence”!

“Ain’t No Party Like the Holy Ghost Party…!”

“…Cause a Holy Ghost Party Don’t Stop… If you know the Lord’s been good to you… Come on, and dance, dance, dance, dance, dance….” [Cory Asbury: Holy Ghost Lyrics] It’s Party Time Y’all… God’s banquet has begun! And you’ve been summoned to the party! Come to the wedding feast. Come, for everything is now ready. Yes, God has made all the preparations, and he wants you to come. Everything is prepared. God has spared no expense. He has given his costliest gift for you, His Son. Your invitation is sent by the Father, penned in the crimson ink of Christ’s blood, and sealed by the Holy Spirit. If you don’t respond; if you don’t R.S.V.P; if you make light of the invitation, the servants of the King will find others who will attend. He will find other guests for his party, and declare those previously invited as unworthy, they “do not deserve to come” [Matthew 22:8]. Don’t ignore the invitation! Don’t make excuses, and don’t refuse or reject God’s call to the banqueting hall. For coming to God’s party at once addresses your greatest need and gives you your greatest treasure. The Spirit says “Come.” It’s a never-ending celebration, the greatest feast of joy and gladness and community there has ever been or ever will be. It starts now, and it will last forever! As the Book of Revelation has it, “Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb.” Yes, blessed indeed!

So come, it is the feast of forgiveness, commitment and life.  You see, the Son of God purchased your salvation, gained the forgiveness you needed for your sins, supplied the righteousness you were lacking –and destroyed the power of death for you. All of it, freely and plenteously given. And the Holy Spirit has called you to come and partake. Come and receive the gifts he has for you; share in the celebration of victory. The only action required is to say “Yes” to the invitation. “Will your heart and soul say, “Yes?” Will you Spirit say ‘Yes?’ …Open up your heart and tell the Lord, “Yes!” Say, “Yes!” Say, I’ll obey Jesus; I won’t stray Jesus; This time I’ve made up in my mind, I’ll say “Yes!” “My soul says, “Yes!” My mind says, “Yes!” My heart says, “Yes I will Jesus.” Yes, I’ll do what you want me to do. I’ll say what you want me to say; I’ll go, if you lead me; Oh, lift your hands and tell the Lord, “Yes!” Come on open up your heart and say, “Yes” All God wants is, “Yes!” Submit your way to His; Tell Him, “Yes.” There’s more that He require of thee; He’s calling you higher; don’t be afraid of men and their faces; don’t be afraid! — He said, He’s calling you out of your dry places for He predestined you before the world begin to do His will. Yeah, there is work to do and that’s why he sent me. Seek His face. Hear His voice. The day you hear His voice, harden not your heart. I tell you, He’s calling you higher, so let your heart and soul say “YES!” [Yes…by Shekinah Glory Ministry].
