Twelve Aspiring Beautillion Knights

SAN BERNARDINO, CA-     During the weekend of December 2, and 3, 2017, the Social Lites, Inc., Beautillion Knights enjoyed seeing “Port Chicago 50” play at Rialto High School in Rialto, California.  Participants learned or relearned in 1944, segregation in the United Sates was prevalent and World War II was in full swing.  The event takes place in San Francisco, CA.

African American soldiers were being pushed by their commanders to load ammunition and other explosives onto two large ships.” Not one of these men were properly trained to handle dangerous cargo. 

“Explosion after explosion! So, fierce, it shook the ground with the force of an earthquake.  Knocking out windows and shaking buildings as far east as Boulder City, Nevada.  That night Port Chicago was changed forever, as 320 seamen lost their lives.  Not one officer in the higher rank was willing to take responsibility for this tragedy.”

Community leader, Mrs. Marlene Davis, Executive Director of the Bethune Center for the National Council for Negro Women educated Knights and their court on resume writing and interviewing techniques for future employment opportunities. 

Weekly meetings are held on Sundays from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at the Boys and Girls Club of San Bernardino.  The 51st Beautillion program will commence on March 24, 2018 at the National Orange Show in San Bernardino.

“Living on Borrowed Time!”

For those who are so busy living from day to day who forget how completely fragile and uncertain life is.  Wisdom is calling aloud outside; she raises her voice in the open squares. She cries out in the chief concourses, at the opening of the gates in the city, she speaks her words, “How long, you simple one, will you love simplicity? And the scorners delight in their scorning, and fools hate knowledge?  Turn ye at my reproof: behold I will pour out my spirit unto you, I will make known my words unto you.” [Proverbs 1:20-23] … For what is your life? It is even a vapor that appears for a little time and then vanishes away. [James 4:14]. Think about that for a moment. Your life, here one minute and gone the next.

Listen, there are two choices in life presented by Jesus [Matthew 7:13-14]. One grounded in human understanding, and one grounded in heavenly understanding – [Romans. 14:12] [2 Corinthians 5:10]. If this message is anything, it is a challenge to begin the process of moving your life closer to the way God wants you to live it. You see when God gave the 10 Commandments at Mount Sinai, He thundered these words: “I am the LORD your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. You shall have no other gods before Me” [Exodus 20:2-3]. God does not want us to place anything before Him. His desire is that we worship Him and Him alone. He must come first in our life. This is the same message that the Book of Haggai, communicates: Put first things first. It was written to people like us, who live with misplaced priorities. Jesus said the same thing: “But seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness…. [Matthew 6:33].

I tell you, it’s time for you to do some serious self-examination before the Lord. Consider your ways [Haggai 1:5, 7]. Stop long enough in your busy schedule and evaluate your life in light of God’s Word. Measure the consequences of your actions. Because when death nears, [here one minute, gone the next] priorities change. What used to seem significant may dim in comparison to one’s ultimate fate…. Check yourself before you wreck yourself!

Principles of Priorities…  [Matthew 5:6]… [Matthew 6:33] … [Matthew 25:14-25] … [Hebrews 10:24-25]…

[1 Peter 2:2]… [1 Corinthians 3:16]… [1 Corinthians 6:19-20]… [2 Corinthians 5:7]… [2 Corinthians 6:16]… [Romans 10:17]… [Ephesians 5:22-29]… [Ephesians 6:1-4]… [Haggai 1:2-11]… [Proverbs 15:13-15] [Proverbs 17:22]… [Proverbs 12:25]

The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand: Repent ye, and believe the gospel.” [Mark 1:15]

Then I saw another angel flying in mid-air, and he had the eternal gospel to proclaim to those who live on the earth – to every nation, tribe, language and people. He said in a loud voice, “Fear God and give him glory, because the hour of his judgment has come. Worship him who made the heavens, the earth, the sea and the springs of water.”’ [Revelation 14:6].
