To know yourself is to know the ONE who Created you.
It is said that history is really HIS – tory and if there is any truth to that statement than what story is the Most High telling and why?
Knowledge is to fear God. Understanding is to run from evil. Wisdom is to seek to know and understand the Most High consistently growing closer to Him constantly submitting to His will.
Knowing yourself is to know where you are from and what faith sustained your ancestors. If I am ignorant of my parents than I am missing a piece of myself. If I am ignorant of my ancestors I am in the dark when it comes to what distinguishes me from other people.

“15and regard the patience of our Lord as salvation; just as also our beloved brother Paul, according to the wisdom given him, wrote to you,16as also in all his letters, speaking in them of these things, in which are some things hard to understand, which the untaught and unstable distort, as they do also the rest of the Scriptures, to their own destruction.” – 2 Peter 3:15,16
John is the right-hand man of Peter (Adam Levy) and brother of James (Denver Isaac), and the only apostle to witness the crucifixion. Known as the “beloved disciple,” John is one of the most sensitive and emotionally intelligent apostles.

Sho Baraka from his latest album
Sho Baraka born Amishio Baraka Lewis in Canada grew up in California and now resides in Atlanta. Sho Baraka left Reach Records to be independent under his own imprint Lion and Liars production releasing what some consider the controversial “Talented 10th.”
I found this album to be a master piece of oratory precision capturing the dilemma we find ourselves facing in life. The Talented 10th is a call to take action! Sho baraka uncovers uncomfortable issues in this project such as racism and the misconception of what a man is as well as the imortuary hip hop produces. He is a collage graduate with a budding career in film an community activist participating in bringing change uplifting the conscious of the ignorant, but submissive to the Holy Spirit functioning as a youth pastor. In short Sho baraka is a king operating in the purpose the King of kings ordained reflecting the image of christ for the youth to use as a landmark or standard along the path to Yahweh. I have included a video here for you to gain an glimpse into the mindset of this visionary…enjoy
