Adam said to his son Seth, “Thou knowest this world – that it is full of sorrow and weariness, and thou knowest all that has come upon us, from our trials in it. Therefore, I command thee to keep innocency, to be pure and just, and trusting in God; and lean not to the discourses of Satan, nor to the apparitions in which he will show himself to thee. Keep the commandments that I have given thee this day; then give the same to thy sons and daughters.
And so that this commandment abide firm among all your children; sever thy children and thy children’s children from Cain’s children; do not let them ever mix with those, nor come near them either in their words or in their deeds.”

Yahshua/Jesus Once Said to the People:

“There was once a landlord who planted a vineyard. He rented it out to tenants and left home for a long time. When the time came to gather the grapes, he sent a slave to the tenants to receive from them his share of the harvest.

The tenants beat the slave and sent him away without anything. The landlord sent a second slave. The tenants shamefully beat him, wounded him, embarrassed him, and threw him out. He sent a third and the same happened to him.

The landlord thought what shall I do? I’ll send my son, they surely will respect him. He sent his son. When they saw his son coming – they said let’s kill him and his property shall be ours!

So they threw him out of the vineyard and killed him. What then will the owner do to those tenants? He will come and kill the tenants and give the vineyard to other tenants.”

My friend, the late ‘Brother Ronald “Kenyatta” Edwin Reed, aided in my pathway to wisdom, knowledge, and a better understanding of that which is destined for us.

I was brought to a clear and profound sense of realization while relaxing and watching a few old classic horror movies. One of the vintage shows portrayed the image of ‘The Messiah’ as he is/was truly seen by those who are not of colored pigmentation. Oh yes, I was taken aback…surprised in fact that the church would depict a Black Man as a motif in the stained-glass murals or painted windows of such an establishment.

One of the movies was “The War of The Worlds” by H.G.Wells and the starring role headed by Mr. Gene Barry. The movie was produced in 1953. The other movie was “Taste the Blood of Dracula.” This particular version was released in 1970. The ‘Hammer Productions’ was a series of Dracula movies in which the starring roles cast Mr. Christopher Lee and Peter Cushing as the good and bad guys during the fifties, sixties, and seventies movie-going era. It has been written and recorded by me as well as many other authors that Jesus is/was a person of colour!

We have often discussed the true description of the ‘Savior’ as we have known Him and should know Him, “The Messiah.”

“Saying, I am the Alpha and Omega, the first and the last; and, what thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches which are in Asia; unto Ephesus, and unto Smyrna, and unto Pergamos, and unto Thyatira, and unto Sardis, and unto Philadelphia, and unto Laodicea.
And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks; And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle, His head and His hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and His eyes were as a flame of fire; and His feet like unto fine brass as if they burned in a furnace; and His voice as the sound of many waters.”
~ Revelations 1:11-15 ~

Kenyatta and I had enjoyed many an argument and agreement, as I shall truly miss his tutelage, inspiration, humor, support, and compassion…he remains in the memory, heart, and soul of this one who is one of his many admirers and friends.

This good brother, known for his belief in the “Hebrew-Israelite Movement” was born to the world May 11, 1947 and began his new life on February 18, 2016.

His Eulogy as depicted by His Family:

“On May 11th, 1947, a baby boy weighing in at 9lbs. and 14oz.s was born in Washington D.C. to William and Katherine A. Reed. The proud parents of this fine healthy boy named him Ronald Edwin Reed.

Ronnie was reared in a Christian home and atmosphere. He attended the High Street Church of God in Germantown-Philadelphia and participated in Sunday school, Church Services, Youth Fellowship Meetings, Youth Conventions, Boyertown Youth Camp and even Wednesday Night Prayer Meetings.

He was a student at E. C. Emlen Elementary School, Theodore Roosevelt Junior High, and graduated from Germantown High School with the Class of 1966. During his school years at Germantown, he played varsity football. He was a member of the Germantown Bears the year they won the 1965 All Public Championship Game.

“Rohney,” as he wrote his name, was a very gentle, tenderhearted young man. He served in the United States Army in Germany from 1966 to 1968 and received an honorable discharge as an SP-4. After returning home from the war he began to identify with the ‘Hebrew Israelites.’ He became a part of the “Black Power Movement” which was the call for the day in the early 1960’s nevertheless, his tender heart remained. Ronnie worked for the Veteran’s Administration Office and the United States Postal Service.

He met and married Corliss Campbell and out of this union they had five children. He was a tough but loving Dad. His children said their father loved to sing and has his music playing all through the house and even had them singing along. He loved all sports and even taught the neighborhood kids martial arts.

Ronnie had a passion for nature and loved to be outdoors. He became a craftsman and an artist using driftwood, seashells, and many other forms of nature to create beautiful pieces of art work. He went to the seashore collecting seashells and then to parks and woods looking for the right pieces of driftwood. He spent many hours meticulously carving and painting his beautiful pieces which were eventually sold.

In 2006, Ronnie attended a special service at the church he grew up in and a wonderful change took place in his life. He recommitted his life to Christ. He called his Mom and told her that the Messiah was now his Lord and Savior. Praise God!!!

In 2007, Ronnie was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma and fought this disease with a passion. He never complained, never asked for assistance and carried his cross with dignity. Whenever asked how he was doing, he always had a positive response… “I’m fine” or “I’m cool!” For eight plus years he fought a good fight.

After a long friendship, eventually turning into a loving relationship, Ronnie remarried in 2010 to his lovely wife, ‘Imani Willie Towns.’

He leaves to cherish his memory:

His lovely wife, Imani Willie Towns; Mother and Father, William and Katherine A. Reed; two sons, Kenyatta K. and Koron K.; four daughters, Tanyikia Alston, Twanda Campbell, Teneeshi Campbell and Kimeesha Reed-Walker (Kenneth); and one step daughter, Briana Towns; five Grandchildren, Jorrell, Kennedy, Lanaeya, Mekhi, and Kenneth Jr.; his loving and faithful Brother, William Reed Jr. aka Abdul Malik (Sandra); two sisters, Deatra E. Seibert and Desma S. Johnson (Darryl Sr.); two uncles, Samuel McCoy and Van McCoy; one aunt, Crystal McCoy; and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and a community of loving friends…of which I am truly proud to be included.

There is one major event not mentioned of my late friend…this Brother talked, walked, and marched with Dr. Martin Luther King during many of the Philadelphia protests of the sixties and (including the protests and marches after Dr. King’s assassination in 1968) seventies! There exists a copy of one of the marches exhibited on one of the pages of the printed version of this eulogy. I, like his family, remain very proud of that fact regarding my friend.

Albeit I shall miss him as I will all the days and nights that we, along with several other compatriots of “The Catharsis Table” (pg. 350 of “Hallow 2,” A Portentous Epoch of Sagacious Redolence and Epiphany); these villainous culprits may have conspired to keep the knowledge of Kenyatta’s death a secret from me. I say this because I am/was truly hurt and crushed that no one bothered to contact me with the news or notice of his death and funeral. The group who generally met on a daily basis, sitting around the table of Ms. Gerry’s House (Geraldine and Ronald Acoyx), including Edgar “Buddy” Johnson and Maurice Grobes, who were supposed to be friends of mine, did not seem to care that Brother Kenyatta and I had become very close.

We argued and discussed Politics, The Holy Bible, The Holy Qur’an, The Torah and the Truth while we learned more and more about one another and spirituality, holistically. I learned of his passing from another group of guys from the neighborhood. Although they were pretty cool dudes, ‘Ron’ and ‘Rayco’ of Baynton Street, they were not members of our so-called group at the ‘Catharsis Table’ in Gerry’s House. We happened to be talking about a few things when Kenyatta’s name came up. The guys starred at one another and remained silent. In the height of the warm April afternoon of noisy traffic and children playing, silence reigned over all. Their solemn and blank faces said it all too… “Your friend is dead – they buried him about a month ago!”

I’ve learned many things since knowing and experiencing this human being. Brother Kenyatta helped and actually inspired me to create the article, “We The Matrix” as recorded within the pages of “Spirit of the Soul and The Death of Morals,” pg. 290.

If he were here with us today, he would definitely be against the evil one who proposes to dominate the world while sitting in the chair of “The White House” that American Slaves Built! Election Day is upon us with the writing. I hope and pray that good conquers evil while continuing on with life’s everyday challenges.

His friendship, spirit, and teachings will remain with me always.

It is Our Privilege, Our Right, Our Responsibility, Our Destiny…VOTE AS IF YOUR LIFE DEPENDED UPON IT! …BECAUSE IT DOES!



Til Next Time…

Greetings Brother Doctor Gregory Boulware, Esq,

Good to hear from you on the Great Read and food for thought. Brother Gregory when I read these words, I can't help to think of the way the Black American, the descendants of the original Hebrew people who don't know the connection between God and his people, God was directly talking too.

Yahshua/Jesus Once Said to the People:

“There was once a landlord who planted a vineyard. He rented it out to tenants and left home for a long time. When the time came to gather the grapes, he sent a slave to the tenants to receive from them his share of the harvest.

The tenants beat the slave and sent him away without anything. The landlord sent a second slave. The tenants shamefully beat him, wounded him, embarrassed him, and threw him out. He sent a third and the same happened to him.

The landlord thought what shall I do? I’ll send my son, they surely will respect him. He sent his son. When they saw his son coming – they said let’s kill him and his property shall be ours!

So they threw him out of the vineyard and killed him. What then will the owner do to those tenants? He will come and kill the tenants and give the vineyard to other tenants.”

That is exactly what happen to the disbelievers in this message and it is still happening to this very day to us, The Black American who refuse to see the light.

Brother Doctor Gregory Boulware, Esq, I can only imagine the conversations between you two on connections of the original Hebrew and The Black American.

Thank you for sharing this great loss of a good friend and what he meant to your life. Our prayers are with you and the family of Brother Ronald “Kenyatta” Edwin Reed.

/*
Many Thanks, as always, to YOU Brother Deacon Ron Gray!

Ya’ateeh, Shalom Alaikum, As Salaam Alaikum, Hotep, Hola, Konichiwa, Privyet, Hallo, and Hello to All of The Many Readers, Followers, and Subscribers to My Blogs and Thought-Sharing Forum!

"That is exactly what happens to the disbelievers in this message and it is still happening to this very day to us, The Black American who refuse to see the light."

Yes Good Brother, there is and it seems to me that there will always be "That group of folks who are known as The ***** In The Wood-Pile!"
You are just as aware and astute My Brother, of those who chose and choose slavery over FREEDOM!

"Oh no, I don't want to run, I wants to stay right here with massa (master) so's I can live real good while knowin where ma next meal is comin from!"

I'll never understand that way of thinking. What makes them do that? What makes them think that way? Don't they know that when it's all said and done, the yoke will be fitted for them as well as the rest of us? "Blacks for trump...please! The kkk endorses this demon...why would one wish to support the very ones who have killed and raped my family? ...I just don't get it.

Yes Brother Deacon, I'll miss Brother Kenyatta. He and I have shared many thought exchanges...you would have liked him. Your postings and writings remind me of him...he thought as you do.

The devil will walk and talk with you while you (those of us who don't know any better) will not even be aware that it is him. That's how he works! Damn...people, why don't you listen to what God is saying to you? We have been warned over and over and over again who and what he is! He will whisper in your ear, smile in your face, make promises that please you, and sell your body and soul to the highest bidder...his lackey's and disciples!

Folks simply don't get it...it's not about Hillary and chump, it's about the entire country, the entire world... I wonder how many who support this maniac would be pleased to see their children and grandchildren on the front lines of a battlefield? They should think about that when entering the polling machine. What about a world-wide depression? How many times have we been told and shown what would happen if country's went to war with one another? We've seen what it looks like in bombed-out societies, yes?

I wouldn't want to live like that...would you?

Thanks for the much welcomed comments Good Brother.

In Pride, Truth, Justice, Peace, and Love,

'G'

“FAIRMOUNT”
The Story
“The Horror of It All…!”
By
Gregory V. Boulware, Esq.

The race against time begins in Philadelphia’s Fairmount Park. Dead bodies were compounded from one side of the river to the other. From Alaska and down through Canada the dealers of death are pursued in the hope of bringing the killing to an end. The city’s officials are at odds with one another. The populace is on edge and demanding closure…an end to the terror that has the city in a grip of fear, turmoil, and a cold sweat of terror.

Anger, racism, and greed are exposed among the highest order. Philadelphia Police commanders are placed under tremendous strain to control its inner city workings to quell this evil overshadowing of the town. One Black Cop and the Native American Ranger are in the battle of their very lives and careers with the confrontation of white apprehension in the capture of the killer.

Read All About It the newest form of Terror that has gripped the City of Philadelphia…

The Fairmount Park Rapist became second fiddle to this latest horror in our city’s parkland…where no one is safe! No one in able to control, contain, or prevent the attacks of this killer that stalks the area…save one man who knows the inner workings of the mind of this murderer!
