The Children's Book, "God's Rainbow for Good the Devil Turned Bad" is available on in both Paperback/Ebook and Audio Versions.

God created a beautiful world to enjoy. He made a man and woman to take care of it and told them to be fruitful and increase in numbers. However, man disobeyed and wickedness was all over the world. The devil lured man to sin and God decided to destroy the earth by a flood. As a sign that He would never send a flood again to destroy the whole earth, God created the Rainbow as a sign of promise. However, wicked people have taken the Rainbow to make it mean something evil. That evil is men marrying men and women marrying women. God only wants 1 man and 1 woman to marry. Anything other than this is wrong. In this book for children, they will learn what God’s original intent was for marriage and what the real meaning of the rainbow stands for. Due to the devil flashing this sin in front of the faces of children everywhere, it is important to start teaching them early about what God expects from us all.

Declaration of Independence

Thomas Jefferson


July 4, 1776

2When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

3We hold these truths to be self-evident:

4That all men are created equal; that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights; that among these are life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness; that, to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed; that whenever any form of government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles, and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object, evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security. Such has been the patient sufferance of these colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former systems of government. The history of the present King of Great Britain is a history of repeated injuries and usurpations, all having in direct object the establishment of an absolute tyranny over these states. To prove this, let facts be submitted to a candid world.

5He has refused his assent to laws, the most wholesome and necessary for the public good.

6He has forbidden his governors to pass laws of immediate and pressing importance, unless suspended in their operation till his assent should be obtained; and, when so suspended, he has utterly neglected to attend to them.

7He has refused to pass other laws for the accommodation of large districts of people, unless those people would relinquish the right of representation in the legislature, a right inestimable to them, and formidable to tyrants only.

8He has called together legislative bodies at places unusual uncomfortable, and distant from the depository of their public records, for the sole purpose of fatiguing them into compliance with his measures.

9He has dissolved representative houses repeatedly, for opposing, with manly firmness, his invasions on the rights of the people.

10He has refused for a long time, after such dissolutions, to cause others to be elected; whereby the legislative powers, incapable of annihilation, have returned to the people at large for their exercise; the state remaining, in the mean time, exposed to all the dangers of invasions from without and convulsions within.

11He has endeavored to prevent the population of these states; for that purpose obstructing the laws for naturalization of foreigners; refusing to pass others to encourage their migration hither, and raising the conditions of new appropriations of lands.

12He has obstructed the administration of justice, by refusing his assent to laws for establishing judiciary powers.

13He has made judges dependent on his will alone, for the tenure of their offices, and the amount and payment of their salaries.

14He has erected a multitude of new offices, and sent hither swarms of officers to harass our people and eat out their substance.

15He has kept among us, in times of peace, standing armies, without the consent of our legislatures.

16He has affected to render the military independent of, and superior to, the civil power.

17He has combined with others to subject us to a jurisdiction foreign to our Constitution and unacknowledged by our laws, giving his assent to their acts of pretended legislation:

18For quartering large bodies of armed troops among us;

19For protecting them, by a mock trial, from punishment for any murders which they should commit on the inhabitants of these states;

20For cutting off our trade with all parts of the world;

21For imposing taxes on us without our consent;

22For depriving us, in many cases, of the benefits of trial by jury;

23For transporting us beyond seas, to be tried for pretended offenses;

24For abolishing the free system of English laws in a neighboring province, establishing therein an arbitrary government, and enlarging its boundaries, so as to render it at once an example and fit instrument for introducing the same absolute rule into these colonies;

25For taking away our charters, abolishing our most valuable laws, and altering fundamentally the forms of our governments;

26For suspending our own legislatures, and declaring themselves invested with power to legislate for us in all cases whatsoever.

27He has abdicated government here, by declaring us out of his protection and waging war against us.

28He has plundered our seas, ravaged our coasts, burned our towns, and destroyed the lives of our people.

29He is at this time transporting large armies of foreign mercenaries to complete the works of death, desolation, and tyranny already begun with circumstances of cruelty and perfidy scarcely paralleled in the most barbarous ages, and totally unworthy the head of a civilized nation.

30He has constrained our fellow-citizens, taken captive on the high seas, to bear arms against their country, to become the executioners of their friends and brethren, or to fall themselves by their hands.

31He has excited domestic insurrection among us, and has endeavored to bring on the inhabitants of our frontiers the merciless Indian savages, whose known rule of warfare is an undistinguished destruction of all ages, sexes, and conditions.

32In every stage of these oppressions we have petitioned for redress in the most humble terms; our repeated petitions have been answered only by repeated injury. A prince, whose character is thus marked by every act which may define a tyrant, is unfit to be the ruler of a free people.

33Nor have we been wanting in our attentions to our British brethren. We have warned them, from time to time, of attempts by their legislature to extend an unwarrantable jurisdiction over us. We have reminded them of the circumstances of our emigration and settlement here. We have appealed to their native justice and magnanimity; and we have conjured them, by the ties of our common kindred, to disavow these usurpations which would inevitably interrupt our connections and correspondence. They too, have been deaf to the voice of justice and of consanguinity. We must, therefore, acquiesce in the necessity which denounces our separation, and hold them as we hold the rest of mankind, enemies in war, in peace friends.

34We, therefore, the representatives of the United States of America, in General Congress assembled, appealing to the Supreme Judge of the world for the rectitude of our intentions, do, in the name and by the authority of the good people of these colonies solemnly publish and declare, That these United Colonies are, and of right ought to be, FREE AND INDEPENDENT STATES; that they are absolved from all allegiance to the British crown and that all political connection between them and the state of Great Britain is, and ought to be, totally dissolved; and that, as free and independent states, they have full power to levy war, conclude peace, contract alliances, establish commerce, and do all other acts and things which independent states may of right do. And for the support of this declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our lives, our fortunes, and our sacred honor.

Traits and Skills of Good Leaders

                        Many people may agree that leadership should never be an automatic right. With leadership comes responsibilities of all magnitudes that can only be developed by education, cultivation and training. Great leadership requires the leader to have extraordinary qualities that will advance the goals of the team and/or organization that is being led. If the leader lacks the necessary qualities to lead, then his/her leadership will be ineffective and will not accomplish the overall goals set forth needed for advancement. There are four basic qualities that a leader should possess described by Kouzes and Posner: honesty, forward-looking, the ability to inspire, and competency. With possessing these qualities, leaders are able to exemplify these values in their everyday lives (Kouzes & Posnew, 2012, p. 79). Those who wish to follow good leaders will oftentimes look at their track record to see if the leader is a man/woman of integrity. It is easy to give directives to others, but a good leader will want to always lead by example. Let’s dig deeper into these four qualities that good leaders should possess.

Albert Einstein, German-born theoretical physicist, once said, “Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters cannot be trusted with important matters” (Lead Like Jesus, 2016). This is true, due to all forms of dishonesty normally starting off small before it becomes monstrous. People have often used the big and little lies narrative when categorizing the serious nature of dishonesty. Nevertheless, what many fail to understand is that the little ones set the foundation for the bigger ones and they both have the same last name…lie. As a leader, it is important for people to be able to trust you. As a matter of fact, it may be the most important quality or trait that a leader possesses because without trust, people will not have confidence in being a follower. Jesus, Son of God, was that kind of leader on earth. Everything that He did and said exemplified the character of his Father who is Truth. “Jesus answered, ‘I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.’ ” (John 14:6, New International Version).

Jesus was letting us know that we could always count on His word and whatever He said would never return void. For 3 ½ years, Jesus led a group of twelve disciples, but had thousands of followers. His leadership on earth was not one of royalty such as likened to kings and queens, but it was a leadership of souls for the purpose of Salvation. He gave directions for His followers to follow in order to help mankind live in accordance to the will of God. One time, He delivered a powerful message called, The Beatitudes, which taught people how to treat each other and the reward that they would receive in Heaven. Part of this message consisted of teaching people to be merciful, peacemakers, meek and pure in heart, but He also led by example for in that same sermon, He spoke of persecution, which He experienced first-hand (Matthew 5:1-11, New International Version). His prophecies and messages held true where people were able to believe him during His time on earth as well as today. The Bible is still the number one best seller of all times because the words in it are still true. Therefore, Jesus’ leadership as such that have people from all over the world following His truth today.
People want leaders who are upright in their character. They desire to have someone that they can trust to lead them in the right direction. Leaders who cannot be trusted will eventually lose followers and for those who are in politics, they will lose votes. An example of this is taking place now with the leadership of President Obama. According to a poll, 71% of Obama’ voters regret voting for him (Punditfact, 2014). Why is this? People want leaders that they can trust, but when that trust is gone, the leadership is no longer respected.

God, however, is the Ultimate Leader who is always truthful and you never have to worry about Him giving empty promises or being dishonest in any way. “As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth: It will not return to me empty, bur will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it” (Isaiah 55: 10-11).
As a leader, I value honesty. I believe that my word is golden and people should be able to believe me. I wouldn’t expect others to follow me if I had the reputation for being untruthful. Therefore, in all things, I must first represent God and because He is a God of Truth, I must be truthful as well. That means no backdoor deals, no cheating on taxes, no lying about scriptures (because I am in ministry as an evangelist), and don’t take credit for something I did not do. Here are three brief tips that are needed to ensure to keep you honest that I plan to follow:
1.)    Never make promises that you can’t keep. “I will not violate my covenant or alter what my lips have uttered” (Psalm 89:34, New International Version).
2.)    Set realistic goals. “The plans of the diligent lead to profit as surely as haste leads to poverty” (Proverbs 21:5, New International Version).
3.)    If you are unable to follow through on your word, do not hide the truth. “The integrity of the upright guides them, but the unfaithful are destroyed by their duplicity” (Proverbs 11:3, New International Version).

Forward-looking is another name for visionary. The ability to be able to vison-cast as a leader is an important trait for any company who wishes to remain or proceed into the future (Stoner, 2016). A good leader can plan for both the present and the future in order for an organization to move forward. A visionary will be able to set realistic and future goals for the organization to be viable in an evolving society. According to Forbes Magazine, leadership success always starts with a vision (Ryan, 2009).
“I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you, plans to give you hope and a future” (Jeremiah 29:11, New International Version). Many of us plan our future with the hope of accomplishing every single goal on our list. Leaders often do this in order to take their organization into the future based upon the projection of sells, technology, world trade, and other issues that could affect the company. However, even with the best of plans, things may not always go accordingly and therefore, a good leader should always have a plan B. The Prophet, Jeremiah, lived in a time where his people were going to be taken captive. They had been rebellious against God and had not followed His decrees. However, God let Jeremiah know that He wanted to bless them and give them a prosperous future.

Jeremiah was a leader who had to issue tough warnings to the Children of Israel concerning their future. If they did not heed to the laws of God, they would be taken into captivity by the Babylonians. He wanted to lead them back to God and knew what their future would hold if they remained in constant rebellion. However, the vision that he had for them to live an upright life, obey God, and get rid of their idols was more than what they wanted to give up even though they would possess more. Therefore, the vision of freedom that he had for them became the reality of enslavement and their lives were forever changed. 
            People have to be able to trust the leader’s vision for the company that they work for and make it come to life. “Leadership is the capacity to translate vision into reality” (Bennis, 2016). Leaders with a vision know how to make the impossible happen because they can see what others can’t. However, even if you have a vision for people, you can’t make them follow if they have no desire to see the vision for themselves as in the case with Jeremiah. Here are three tips that will help when forecasting a vision for others to follow:
1.)    Write down the vision that you have for the organization. “Then the Lord replied: ‘Write down the revelation and make it plain on tablets so that a herald may run with it’ ” (Habakkuk 2:2, New International Version).
2.)    Be willing to listen to sound advice. “For lack of guidance a nation falls, but many advisers make victory sure” (Proverbs 11:14, New International Version).
3.)    Make sure your vision is for the good of the overall organization. “We who are strong ought to bear the failings of the weak and not to please ourselves. Each of us should please his neighbor for his good, to build them up” (Romans 15:1-2).

            One of the necessary qualities and/or traits that a leader should possess is being able to inspire others. It is not good enough just to give orders, but you should inspire people to want to follow you and the vision that you have given. Inspirational leaders create enthusiasm, empowerment, and confidence, which all play a role in inspiring others (Morgan, 2016). A good leader will know that inspiration is key to helping employers move an organization forward at a faster pace than it would if there was little motivation behind their work.
 Gideon, in the Bible, became a leader after God selected him to rescue His people from the bondage of the Midianites. The Israelites were always finding themselves being someone’s captive due to their constant disobedience to God’s laws. As long as they obeyed God, they had peace from their enemies and God’s hand of protection. However, whenever they decided to go back to their idolatrous ways, they angered the Lord and He would allow them to be taken captive by one of their enemies. “Again the Israelites did evil in the eyes of the Lord, and for seven years he gave them into the hands of the Midianites” (Judges 6:1, New International Version).
            Nevertheless, once they repented and asked God to help them, He would send them a leader to save them from their captivity. This time was no different. Gideon was from a small clan, which was the least of the people. He never would have imagined that God would use him to do such a big job. Yet, this is exactly what God did. Gideon was allotted three hundred soldiers to take down thousands of Israel’s enemies. Even though they were up against such numbers, Gideon’s belief and courage in God inspired them not to fear, but to have faith in knowing that it was not about numbers, but about God’s backing. He inspired his men by leading them into battle and God handled the rest. “Watch me,” he told them. “Follow my lead. When I get to the edge of the camp, do exactly as I do. When I and all who are with me blow our trumpets, and from all around the camp blow yours and shout, ‘For the Lord and for Gideon’ ” (Judges 7:17-18, New International Version),  
            Being a good leader means that you can inspire others to look beyond their shortfalls to accomplish greatness. Inspiring others helps to move them in a forward direction instead of being stagnant. Whenever someone has come to me for inspiration, I give them the words that God would have me to say in order to help them to know that they can do all things through Christ. There is nothing that we can’t do if we allow God to lead. Good leaders are Godly leaders and Godly leaders are inspiring leaders. Inspiration is going beyond yourself to do the impossible, but with me, I give all credit to God. Here are a few tips for being an inspiring leader:
1.)    Be willing to get in the trenches with those who are under you and lead by example. “So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets” (Matthew 7:12, New International Version).
2.)    Encourage others to know that they can be successful. “I can do everything through him who gives me strength” (Philippians 4:13, New International Version).
3.)    Work with happiness and diligence so that others can be inspired. “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men…” (Colossians 3:23, New International Version).

“Believe in your potential even if you haven’t seen the results” (Nunez, 2016). A leader needs to have exceptional skills in his/her field. For example, a doctor would not do well if the medical education was forgotten in order to lead his/her practice. Therefore, it would be wise for the doctor to remember everything that was learned during medical school even if that means taking classes to refresh and learn new techniques. The same applies to all leaders regardless of the field they are in. People want to know that their leaders are qualified to lead them by knowing the inner workings of their organization.

     King Nebuchadnezzar, a leader during the Babylonian era, was such a king who was competent to lead his nation. Not only did he lead his nation, but he conquered other nations as well. The fear of the Babylonians was in many nations because King Nebuchadnezzar was a very good strategist as well as military commander. “In the third year of the reign of Jehoiakim king of Judah, Nebuchadnezzar king of Babylon came to Jerusalem and besieged it” (Daniel 1:1, New International Version). God used him in such a way that He even allowed this king to conquer the Israelites due to their inability to remain faithful. The only problem with King Nebuchadnezzar was that he as too arrogant in his own abilities and did not give honor to the God of Heaven who made him great. After being humbled, by God himself, due to being turned into a beast for seven years, King Nebuchadnezzar gave glory to God for giving him the competence to be a mighty leader.  “Now I, Nebuchadnezzar, praise and exalt and glorify the King of heaven, because everything he does is right and all his ways are just. And those who walk in pride he is able to humble” (Daniel 4:37, New International Version).
      The reason we go to school to get education is so that we can have the tools we need to do our jobs effectively. There is nothing worse than a leader who does not know how to lead or know the task for which they are leading. Whenever I am in leadership, I try to study all that I can in order to be effective in teaching and leading others. For example, I just recently got my certification from the American Heart Association, so that I can be an instructor to teach people CPR and First Aid. However, if I didn’t do the studies needed to know the course outline, I wouldn’t be effective in the classroom. Therefore, my students wouldn’t have the proper training they need in order to save a life. This is why competency is needed as a leader. Here are a few tips for leaders to be competent in their field which I follow:
1.)    Stay current with the organization’s inner workings. “My people are destroyed from lack of knowledge…” (Hosea 4:6, New International Version).
2.)    Study to learn more about your chosen field. “Study to show thyself approved unto God, a workman who need not to be ashamed, rightly dividing the word of truth” (2 Timothy 2:15, King James Version).
3.)    Attend seminars and workshops. “How much better to get wisdom than gold, to choose understanding rather than silver’ (Proverbs 16:16, New International Verson).
4.)    Ask questions to obtain additional information. “Then Philip ran up to the chariot and heard the man reading Isaiah the prophet. ‘Do you understand what you are reading?’ ” (Acts 8:30, New International Version).

         Good leaders will do what is needed to maintain the integrity of their office. They will seek to maintain that integrity in leading by example. A leader should be aware that there are those who are looking to him/her as an example to model their own future leadership styles by. Therefore, being aware of the example that is set should be a major incentive for leaders to watch their dealings with others. If all leaders were to keep this in mind, there may be more accountability and less corruption in many offices of authority.

          We have nation that has gone rogue! They have decided to defy God in every way. Christianity is under attack in many countries and this one has begun its own persecution of the saints as well. The devil is trying to corrupt the babies by forcing his demonic agenda onto the whole world including the church. If we cannot stand for GOD we will fall for anything. The Obama Administration has issued a decree that all schools must allow transgenders into their bathrooms and locker rooms. Target Stores have already allowed men to come into the women’s restrooms and now this with the schools. WHEN ARE CHRISTIANS GOING TO RISE AND STOP BEING SILENT? You may say…”What can I do?” I’m glad that you asked the question.

          Only 12 states have filed suit to stop the Obama Administration’s order. According to the Washington Post, these states are: Texas, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Utah, West Virginia, Wisconsin, Arizona, and Maine.  That means that there are 38 more states that need to be “PREASURED” to join in on the suit. So what can you do? We’ve already discussed sending letters, emails, faxes and whatever correspondence and means of communication to your governors, senators, public school officials and more. However, the Obama Administration’s timing for the release of this information was planned due to the school year being almost out at the time of its release. They knew that there would be little for a reaction. Nothing this administration does is “spare of the moment,” but they will put YOU in the position to act accordingly. Therefore, we as Christians should give them what they want…A CHRISTIAN RESPONSE.

          Therefore, Christian Parents who have their children in school should take into account the in order to make a change, you have to affect their MONEY. The districts get funds based upon the amount of students that are enrolled. When the enrollment drops, the funding drops as well. So, what does this mean? Anytime in history when there needed to be a change, you had to go after the money. This is no different. Christian parents must make a STAND! If you do not want your children to be subjected to this type of ungodliness, TAKE THEM OUT OF THE PUBLIC SCHOOLS. You may say that you do not have enough money to put them into private school. That is fine, but you can HOMESCHOOL them.

          Even if you have a job, which take most of your day, you AND other parents can work together to help each other’s children learn. There are things that can be done to make this transition easy, but if CHRISTIANS fail to act, you fail the next generation. The Bible says to Train up a child in the way he should go. This also means to not allow the devil’s poison, regardless of where it comes from, to be entertained in their mist. I am just one person. I don’t even have any children. However, I am looking out for the children of others. WILL YOU MAKE A STAND? Parents, Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, Guardians, and others who have children in your care are OBLIGATED to protect them. The time to act is NOW!
