My Master and Shepherd, no matter what.

Satan is the accuser of the
saints but I won’t meet Satan once I am dead – I will meet the Lord.  That
means Satan’s power over me will be over. LOL  I can not say that I am not
sick of it but this life is very short compared to Eternity in Heaven with My
Husband Ashley and my son Etienne.


Men can only kill my body and there is nothing else they can do with me – they
can not send me in hell, no matter how hard they would LOVE to try this.
LOL  In other words, because Jesus died for me, Satan can not WIN the war
with me, no matter HOW MANY BATTLES I LOST NOT OF MY FAULT.

Jesus is my life because He is the only one I know who would go as far as to
die for me so He is worth ALL MY BEING.  (Jn. 14:6)  This life on
earth is just a test.  Nothing more and nothing less than just a test to
see where your heart is.  I belong to Jesus and the folks who harmed
Ashley and harmed me will have a special price to pay when they will meet the
Master of the Universe because I am most definitively his sister. 

From KJV

Psalm 23

 1The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want.

 2He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he
leadeth me beside the still waters.

 3He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the
paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

 4Yea, though I walk through the valley of the
shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy
staff they comfort me.

 5Thou preparest a table before me in the
presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.

 6Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all
the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house
of the LORD for ever.

Psalm 24

 1The earth is the LORD’s, and the fulness
thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein.

 2For he hath founded it upon the seas, and
established it upon the floods.

 3Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or
who shall stand in his holy place?

 4He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart;
who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully.

 5He shall receive the blessing from the LORD,
and righteousness from the God of his salvation.

 6This is the generation of them that seek him,
that seek thy face, O Jacob. Selah.

 7Lift up your heads,
O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory
shall come in.

 8Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and
mighty, the LORD mighty in battle.

 9Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them
up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.

 10Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts,
he is the King of glory. Selah.

Psalm 25

 1Unto thee, O LORD, do I lift up my soul.

 2O my God, I trust in thee: let me not be
ashamed, let not mine enemies triumph over me.

 3Yea, let none that wait on thee be ashamed:
let them be ashamed which transgress without cause.

 4Shew me thy ways, O LORD; teach me thy paths.

 5Lead me in thy truth, and teach me: for thou
art the God of my salvation; on thee do I wait all the day.

 6Remember, O LORD, thy tender mercies and thy
lovingkindnesses; for they have been ever of old.

 7Remember not the sins of my youth, nor my
transgressions: according to thy mercy remember thou me for thy goodness’ sake,
O LORD.

 8Good and upright is the LORD: therefore will
he teach sinners in the way.

 9The meek will he guide in judgment: and the
meek will he teach his way.

 10All the paths of the LORD are mercy and truth
unto such as keep his covenant and his testimonies.

 11For thy name’s sake, O LORD, pardon mine
iniquity; for it is great.

 12What man is he
that feareth the LORD? him shall he teach in the way that he shall choose.

 13His soul shall dwell at ease; and his seed
shall inherit the earth.

 14The secret of the
LORD is with them that fear him; and he will shew them his covenant.

 15Mine eyes are ever toward the LORD; for he shall pluck my
feet out of the net.

 16Turn thee unto me,
and have mercy upon me; for I am desolate and afflicted.

 17The troubles of my heart are enlarged: O
bring thou me out of my distresses.

 18Look upon mine affliction and my pain; and
forgive all my sins.

 19Consider mine
enemies; for they are many; and they hate me with cruel hatred.

 20O keep my soul,
and deliver me: let me not be ashamed; for I put my trust in thee.

 21Let integrity and uprightness preserve me;
for I wait on thee.

 22Redeem Israel, O
God, out of all his troubles.

 

Psalm 26

 1Judge me, O LORD;
for I have walked in mine integrity: I have trusted also in the LORD; therefore
I shall not slide.

 2Examine me, O LORD, and prove me; try my reins
and my heart.

 3For thy
lovingkindness is before mine eyes: and I have walked in thy truth.

 4I have not sat
with vain persons, neither will I go in with dissemblers.

 5I have hated the congregation of evil doers;
and will not sit with the wicked.

 6I will wash mine
hands in innocency: so will I compass thine altar, O LORD:

 7That I may publish with the voice of
thanksgiving, and tell of all thy wondrous works.

 8LORD, I have loved the habitation of thy house, and the
place where thine honour dwelleth.

 9Gather not my soul with sinners, nor my life
with bloody men:

 10In whose hands is
mischief, and their right hand is full of bribes.

 11But as for me, I
will walk in mine integrity: redeem me, and be merciful unto me.

 12My foot standeth in an even place: in the
congregations will I bless the LORD.

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 27

 1The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom
shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?

 2When the wicked, even mine enemies and my
foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell.

 3Though an host should encamp against me, my
heart shall not fear: though war should rise
against me, in this will I be confident.

 4One thing have I desired of the LORD, that
will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my
life, to behold the beauty of the LORD, and to enquire in his temple.

 5For in the time of trouble he shall hide me in
his pavilion: in the secret of his tabernacle shall he hide me; he shall set me
up upon a rock.

 6And now shall mine head be lifted up above
mine enemies round about me: therefore will I offer in his tabernacle
sacrifices of joy; I will sing, yea, I will sing praises unto the LORD.

 7Hear, O LORD, when I cry with my voice: have
mercy also upon me, and answer me.

 8When thou saidst, Seek ye my face; my heart
said unto thee, Thy face, LORD, will I seek.

 9Hide not thy face
far from me; put not thy servant away in anger: thou hast been my help; leave
me not, neither forsake me, O God of my salvation.

 10When my father and my mother forsake me, then the LORD will
take me up.

 11Teach me thy way, O LORD, and lead me in a
plain path, because of mine enemies.

 12Deliver me not over unto the will of mine
enemies: for false witnesses are risen up against me, and such as breathe out
cruelty.

 13I had fainted, unless I had believed to see
the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.

 14Wait on the LORD: be of good courage, and he
shall strengthen thine heart: wait, I say, on the LORD.

~~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 28

 1Unto thee will I cry, O LORD my rock; be not silent to me:
lest, if thou be silent to me, I become like them that go down into the pit.

 2Hear the voice of my supplications, when I cry
unto thee, when I lift up my hands toward thy holy oracle.

 3Draw me not away with the wicked, and with the workers of
iniquity, which speak peace to their neighbours, but mischief is in their
hearts.

 4Give them according
to their deeds, and according to the wickedness of their endeavours: give them
after the work of their hands; render to them their desert.

 5Because they regard not the works of the LORD,
nor the operation of his hands, he shall destroy them, and not build them up.

 6Blessed be the LORD, because he hath heard the
voice of my supplications.

 7The LORD is my strength and my shield; my heart trusted in
him, and I am helped: therefore my heart greatly rejoiceth; and with my song
will I praise him.

 8The LORD is their strength, and he is the
saving strength of his anointed.

 9Save thy people, and bless thine inheritance:
feed them also, and lift them up for ever.

~~~~~~~~

Psalm 29

 1Give unto the LORD, O ye mighty, give unto the
LORD glory and strength.

 2Give unto the LORD the glory due unto his
name; worship the LORD in the beauty of holiness.

 3The voice of the LORD is upon the waters: the
God of glory thundereth: the LORD is upon many waters.

 4The voice of the LORD is powerful; the voice
of the LORD is full of majesty.

 5The voice of the LORD breaketh the cedars;
yea, the LORD breaketh the cedars of Lebanon.

 6He maketh them also to skip like a calf;
Lebanon and Sirion like a young unicorn.

 7The voice of the LORD divideth the flames of
fire.

 8The voice of the LORD shaketh the wilderness;
the LORD shaketh the wilderness of Kadesh.

 9The voice of the LORD maketh the hinds to
calve, and discovereth the forests: and in his temple
doth every one speak of his glory.

 10The LORD sitteth
upon the flood; yea, the LORD sitteth King for ever.

 11The LORD will give strength unto his people;
the LORD will bless his people with peace.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Psalm 30

 1I will extol thee,
O LORD; for thou hast lifted me up, and hast not made my foes to rejoice over
me.

 2O LORD my God, I cried unto thee, and thou
hast healed me.

 3O LORD, thou hast brought up my soul from the
grave: thou hast kept me alive, that I should not go down to the pit.

 4Sing unto the LORD, O ye saints of his, and
give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.

 5For his anger endureth but a moment; in his
favour is life: weeping may endure for a night, but joy cometh in the morning.

 6And in my prosperity I said, I shall never be
moved.

 7LORD, by thy favour thou hast made my mountain
to stand strong: thou didst hide thy face, and I was troubled.

 8I cried to thee, O LORD; and unto the LORD I
made supplication.

 9What profit is there in my blood, when I go down to the pit?
Shall the dust praise thee? shall it declare thy truth?

 10Hear, O LORD, and have mercy upon me: LORD,
be thou my helper.

 11Thou hast turned for me my mourning into
dancing: thou hast put off my sackcloth, and girded me with gladness;

 12To the end that my glory may sing praise to thee, and not be
silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks unto thee for ever.

THE VARIOUS THEORIES BROUGHT TO DENY THE HISTORIC CHARACTER OF THE RESURRECTION:

JESUS’ RESURRECTION – INTRODUCTION:

A BRIEF HISTORY:

In
the beliefs of the antiquity, there was the myths of the Resurrection
linked to the cycle of the seasons. On the other hand, one does not
find nothing comparable to the proclamation of the apostles and writing
according to which a man, Jesus of Nazareth was dead and overcame the
death while coming back to life to reign eternally on a new creation
get rid of sin, sufferings and death. The New Testament, filled with a
hope based on the Resurrection of Christ and of his faith in our own
Resurrection, contrast sharply with general despair facing the death
that characterized the beliefs in this era. The Greeks believed in
immortality seen as the delivery of the impede that constitutes the
physical body; the Jews expected to return world of the deaths in their
same body. While Christian hope was the one of a transformed body able
to express personal life in the age to come.

THE RESURRECTION: BASIC DOCTRINE OF CHRISTIANITY:


One
confuses often today the Resurrection with the maintenance of the
personal existence after the death. While the Resurrection hears the
maintenance of the existence (the soul) after the death, it implies for
the person the recuperation of a body. To be raised from the death, is
to receive again a body, this is to be reintroduced by God in the
concrete world, in the material world. Once resurrected, we do not know
the death anymore. According to the Bible, we have only one life to
live in this body marked by the sin and the death. Therefore, we die
only once. Now, this life that passes under the assessment of God about
the good or the evil that one will have done being in this body
determines our eternity.

For
Christianity, the physical Resurrection of Christ is extremely
important. (1 Cor. 15, 12-19) The Whole Christian Faith depends on it.
The apostle Paul, in his epistles, showed that all is based on the
bodily Resurrection of Christ. If there is no Resurrection he says, the
apostles are false witnesses, the predication of the Christians is
vain, their faith also and they are without hope for the future. For
the Christian, the Resurrection testifies the deity of Jesus-Christ, it
is the sign by excellence of His divinity. It gives all the meaning of
his life and to his message. It validates His affirmations of incarnate
God, Savior of the humanity and as coming judge of the world. According
to Paul, the Resurrection of Jesus removed the power of the death and
to the tomb his ultimate victory on life. In His death-Resurrection
event, Jesus constitutes the first example of this that which will
become reality for all the believers.

VARIOUS THEORIES BROUGHT TO DENY THE HISTORIC CHARACTER OF THE RESURRECTION:

1ST THEORY: “THE HALLUCINATION”


The
theory of the hallucination suggests that all the apparitions of Christ
after the Resurrection were only hallucinatory deceptions. The people
who have claimed to see Christ are seen as having hallucinations. This
theory supposes that the grave always were occupied enters in
contradiction with certain conditions (principles) that must be met to
allow a hallucination to produce itself:

1st weakness of the
theory: theory that indisputably the first principle that says that
usually, uniquely certain persons have hallucinations – usually
paranoiacs and (especially) schizophrenics. Now, in the New Testament,
there is all kinds of persons having had different experiences, a
different education and being in different dispositions.

2nd
weakness of the theory: the second principle enunciates that the
hallucinations are linked to the subconscious of a person and to its
previous experiences. It is not very likely that two persons, or more,
can have the same hallucination at the same time.

Christ
appeared to a lot of persons and the descriptions of these apparitions
contain a lot of details that the psychologists consider, determined by
the reality. The supporters of this theory seem to forget that a
hallucination is a private event, a subjective experience empties of
all external references, empties of all objects. Thus, if two persons
cannot create or keep the same vision without any object external
reference, that is impossible that 500 persons, hallucinate the same
thing and at the same time (Christ appeared simultaneously to 500
persons stipulates Paul in his first epistle to the Corinthians).

3rd
weakness of the theory: ordinarily, the hallucinations can take place
whenever or wherever. In the New Testament, the circumstances of a
hallucination are lacking. The mentioned apparitions are a lot more
than only simple momentary visions, the time there plays a role: 15
different apparitions – of which to more than 500 persons. Besides,
these apparitions present themselves under a big variety of time and
places.

4th weakness of the theory: the hallucinations
required of the subjects an expectative spirit or of hope that does
their desires generate certain thoughts. Now, the last thing that the
disciples awaited was a Resurrection: they thought that Christ had been
crucified, buried and that all was finished. Mary Magdala, while going
to the tomb the first Sunday to carry the spices that she had prepared
to embalm with fragrance the body of Jesus, evidently did not expect to
discover Him risen from the death. When at last the Lord appeared to
His disciples, they had fear and believed to see a ghost.

5th
weakness of the theory: the hallucinations habitually takes place
during a long period and on a regularly basis. In the New Testament,
the apparitions stopped abruptly. They stopped themselves all at the
same moment.

2ND THEORY: “BODY STOLEN BY THE DISCIPLES”


This
theory supports that the disciples would have invented a Resurrection
by stealing the body of Jesus and that they accepted dying martyrs for
a lie.

Here a theory that would not hold in front of a justice
court. One supposes that the disciples would have come to steal the
body of Jesus while the roman guard slept. Now, if the roman guard
really had slept, how could he have known that the disciples had stolen
the body? The defense lawyer would have liked to undergo a
cross-examination to the captain of the guard.

It is
impossible that the soldiers slept. The fear of the punishment caused
them to be very careful with their orders, especially in the night. The
Roman security unit was a war machine; if the disciples had attempted
something, there would have been a fight of six seconds (just one
soldier easily could have mastered the whole group of the disciples).
It is necessary to remember that when Jesus was stopped in the Garden!
of Gethsemane, all the disciples abandoned him and fled. In the New
Testament, these are described not as intrigues, but as knocked out
men, discouraged, that hid fearing themselves for their life.

And
then, there is the question of the huge rock of about two tons that
closed the entry of the tomb. The position of this last one – rolled to
a certain distance of the sepulcher – makes the idea difficult since
the soldiers would have slept despite of all this noise. Over all, this
hypothesis does not agree to the lesser of the world, with that we know
of the character of the apostles. These people were too honest to
commit such trickery. This action would contrast with all is written
about them (these men of high morality and of honor). According to the
doctor J. N. D. Anderson, Leading Juridical Expert in Great Britain,
the theory does not give explanation to the touching transformation
that operated itself in them and that changed from to being depressed
and discouraged in witnesses that nothing could stop.

That did
not resemble any of them to imagine a blow of this kind, or to have
enough shrewdness and of rapidity decision to execute it without
anybody noticing it. Even if such had been the case, the history of
Christianity would have taken a different turn. Sooner or later, one or
the other of the eleven men having taken part in the abduction of the
body would have, by clumsiness or otherwise, revealed the secret. More,
a moral structure of the breadth of the primitive church established,
as this church was, on long persecutions and of unspeakable sufferings,
could not have established its doctrine on a lie.

In the last
analysis, why the disciples would have wanted to give the impression
that Christ was risen from the dead while they did not expect his
Resurrection? Also, who could believe that these men were confronted to
later persecutions, while knowing their faith was based on a deception?

3RD THEORY: "BODY STOLEN BY AUTHORITIES"

Here,
Roman authorities and Jews would have taken the body and would have
deposited the body in a safe place, in order to prevent whoever to
claim that there had been Resurrection.

Face has such an
hypothesis, one cannot do otherwise than to ask the following question:
Why would authorities have done the only thing that could create
problems to them? The disciples had returned in the middle of the city
of Jerusalem and preached Christ rose from the death. If what they
proclaimed was false, it would have sufficed to show the body to
contradict them. Where was the official denial? Why authorities did not
say: “This is an absurdity. We gave the order to move the body".

If
that had been insufficient, why would they not have called as witnesses
those that had moved the body? Or why would they not have put the body
of Christ on a cart and displayed it all over Jerusalem? This spectacle
would have killed the Christianity before its beginning. The only
possible answer to this question is that the authorities were not able
to produce the body. They had absolutely no clue to allow them to have
the knowledge of where the body was.

Yes,
when the apostles began to preach the Resurrection, it would have
sufficed for the authorities to show the body to refute the Christian
proclamation, but they did not do it…

4th THEORY: "THE FAINTING" (OR THEORY OF INTENSIVE CARE)

According
to this theory, Jesus was not really dead on the cross. It is true that
he was nailed to it and suffered shock, pains and bleeding, but instead
of dying he fainted of exhaustion. Thinking that he was dead his
disciples buried him alive. The medical knowledge of the era was not
very well developed; it was easy for them to be mistaken. The cold of
the tomb where Christ was placed woke him up from the coma. His
disciples were so ignorant that they could not believe of a simple
intensive care; that is why they supported that it was a matter of a
Resurrection.

This theory forgets certain facts:

1. Jesus undergoes six legal proceedings – three Roman and three Jewish proceedings.
2. It was inflicted on him the torture of the Roman flagellation.
3. He was so weak that he did not have the strength to carry his "patibulum” – i.e. the transversal bar of the cross.
4. They nailed him in the hands (or wrists) and feet to crucify him.
5.
The Roman pierced his side from a blow of a spear and the witnesses
said: "It came out water and blood", which is a death sign.
6.
Four butchers confirmed his death. The Roman teams in charge of the
crucifixion knew their job. They had enough practice on others.
7.
More than 100 pounds of spices and of sticky substances were placed all
over his body. (could he have breathed through that?)
8. He was placed in a cold and humid grave.
9. A big rock was rolled in front of the entry.
10. A Roman guard was placed in front of the grave.

According
to this theory, an unbelievable thing happened: the cold and humid air
of the grave would have reanimated Christ instead of killing him (by
pneumonia alone). He tore his shroud, pushed the rock in the entry,
pushed back the guards and little time after, appeared to his disciples
as Lord of life.

Indeed, this theory does not hold any account
of the mortal character of the inflicted wound to Jesus, frightful
mutilation of the hands (or wrists) and feet, the exhaustion due to
heavy bleeding, of absence of any human assistance during the most
critical moments where they would have been essential, firmly tight
shroud around the body, and the heavy rock that closed the entry of the
tomb. It suffices to represent a human body, bleeding from five open
wounds lying on the cold rock of a tomb, without human relief of any
type, to understand to which extent this assumption is not reasonable.


IN CONCLUSION:

Less
than twenty years following the death and Resurrection of Christ, the
word of the fishermen of Galilee shook even in deeper more seated
temple of Judaism and its echoes resounded all alongside the Eastern
Coast of the Mediterranean. Then, it began to become a serious threat
for the Roman Empire. The Christian Church recruited the mass of its
first adherents not among the foreigners that came to pass some days or
some weeks in Jerusalem for a holiday, but in the permanent population
of the city. The enemies of the faith were paralyzed. Several high
persons would have certainly sacrificed a part of their fortune to
annihilate this movement if it had been possible.

By a strange
whim of luck, the disciples were brought to begin their campaign that
was scarcely a 15 minute of walk to the place of, if their pretentions
were not to have been founded, the remains of their Master was buried
in a easily accessible cave. The question could be solved immediately
and by testimonies of a limited number of people. Besides, it is
necessary to take in consideration that when the disciples of Jesus
proclaimed the Resurrection, they did it as eyewitnesses while the
people that had been in communication with the events of which they
spoke were alive yet. In 56 A.D., the apostle Paul wrote that more than
500 persons at the same time saw the Resurrected One, and that most of
them were still alive. (1 Corinthians 15) That the first Christians
were able to invent such a fable and to preach it among those who could
so easily have contradicted them, while producing the body of Jesus
surpasses in my opinion the boundaries of the credibility. An author
said one day: "If Jesus would remain in the tomb, the history of his
life and death would have remained with him".

C.H. Spurgeon’s Evening Devotional

Saturday October 18, 2008


"Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice."-1 Samuel 15:22

    

    Saul had been commanded to slay utterly all the Amalekites and
their cattle. Instead of doing so, he preserved the king, and suffered
his people to take the best of the oxen and of the sheep. When called
to account for this, he declared that he did it with a view of offering
sacrifice to God; but Samuel met him at once with the assurance that
sacrifices were no excuse for an act of direct rebellion. The sentence
before us is worthy to be printed in letters of gold, and to be hung up
before the eyes of the present idolatrous generation, who are very fond
of the fineries of will-worship, but utterly neglect the laws of God.
Be it ever in your remembrance, that to keep strictly in the path of
your Saviour’s command is better than any outward form of religion; and
to hearken to His precept with an attentive ear is better than to bring
the fat of rams, or any other precious thing to lay upon His altar. If
you are failing to keep the least of Christ’s commands to His
disciples, I pray you be disobedient no longer. All the pretensions you
make of attachment to your Master, and all the devout actions which you
may perform, are no recompense for disobedience. "To obey," even in the
slightest and smallest thing, "is better than sacrifice," however
pompous. Talk not of Gregorian chants, sumptuous robes, incense, and
banners; the first thing which God requires of His child is obedience;
and though you should give your body to be burned, and all your goods
to feed the poor, yet if you do not hearken to the Lord’s precepts, all
your formalities shall profit you nothing. It is a blessed thing to be
teachable as a little child, but it is a much more blessed thing when
one has been taught the lesson, to carry it out to the letter. How many
adorn their temples and decorate their priests, but refuse to obey the
word of the Lord! My soul, come not thou into their secret.

game that DHS was allowed to play with their lives, which was totally uncalled
for, especially where Marie’s part was concerned.

All though Ashley,
a qualified Reverend, D.D., Member of the Who’s/Who. has passed on to the other
side. I am trying to help her achieved the needed finances to give Ashley the
proper ceremony and send off, which he did not receive at the time of his
death.

Interment/Inurnment Costs

There are no fees or costs for an interment or inurnment. The only
cost to the estate of the deceased is for any additional inscription that is
needed on an existing private monument after the interment or for a vault if
the next-of-kin should elect to provide for an outside container other that the
grave liner provided by the government
.

All costs associated with preparation of
the remains, casket or urn, and shipping of the remains to the Washington, DC
area are at the expense of the estate unless the deceased is currently on
active duty with a branch of the Armed Forces. Please check with your local VA
office and Social Security office to determine if any benefits are available
from either or both agencies.

Over the past two
years, I have had the pleasure of meeting and conversing with a very
intelligent Lady… This lady has acquired her Bachelor In Arts & her Master
of Psychology Degree , and a past member of the Order of Psychologists of
Quebec Province, Canada….

The Lady has no “criminal record”

She met a U.S.
serviceman by the name of Ashley McDonald Buchanan, Honorably discharged
veteran and over a period of time, they decided they were suited for one
another. They were married in Union County North Carolina, U.S. of A. Her
husband received many certificates/diplomas, obtained his Doctrine of Divinity
in Florida

“In general, marriages
which are legally performed and valid abroad are also legally valid in the
United States. It stands to reason that when a foreigner marries an American
citizen in the continental U.S. of A. That spouse becomes a legal citizen of
the United States of the state in the United States where the parties to the
marriage live. “

One must remember
that there have been many that have had problems with the department of
IMMIGRATION, which spans back for many, many years. Now things are even tougher
since the false flag of 9/11 2001… Now it appears that all immigrants are
“terrorists” as well as all the citizens of the continental united states.

In my lowly
opinion, these so called guardians of the land, seem to project that a clean
background does not even enter into the scenario of one’s previous work ethics,
or accomplishments, it appears that there is an abuse of the border guards
position of authority.

What I have come to
find out, this is a common everyday occurrence, which could possibly be one of
the main reasons the INS / ICE is so far behind in approving citizenship,
status for the many thousands that have already applied.

This, leads to
another thought, maybe this is how CONGRESS and the INS / ICE would like to
alleviate their incompetent performance thus far….

§ 1422.
Eligibility for naturalization

The
right of a person to become a naturalized citizen of the United States shall
not be denied or
abridged
because of race, sex or because such person is married.

(a)

Well,
Ladies & Gentlemen, would you be so kind as to DONATE what one can Spare,
to the goal of giving a wife of an HONORABLY DISCHARGED VETERAN the needed help
for an honorable and proper burial for her late husband.

I now
place this challenge before all VETERANS and True Patriots. Donate what you can
or meet my challenge of $50…

Salutations, (Name of Congressman)

If you would indulge me with just a few minutes of your precious time. It would be appreciated

This inquiry is in relation to one Marie Martine Buchanan, Married to, and the wife of a U.S

Veteran Rev. Ashley McDonald Buchanan, D.D. now deceased..

The Creator’s law is the supreme law which I live by. It is the controlling factor in my daily

life’s routine, man’s law is subservient to the Creator.

§404.725 Evidence of a valid ceremonial marriage.

§404.727 Evidence of a deemed valid marriage.

In general, marriages which are legally performed and valid abroad are also legally valid in the

United States. It stands to reason that when a foreigner marries an American citizen in the continental

U.S. of A. That spouse becomes a legal citizen of the United States of the state in the United

States where the parties to the marriage live.

5. And said, For this cause shall a man leave father and mother, and shall cleave to his wife:

and they twain shall be one flesh?

6. Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined together, let not man put asunder

All civil law countries require proof of legal capacity to enter into a marriage contract in the form

of certification by competent authority that no impediment exists to the marriage. No such document

exists in the United States. Unless the foreign authorities will allow such a statement to be executed

before one of their consular officials in the United States, it will be necessary for the parties to a

prospective marriage abroad to execute an affidavit at the American embassy or consulate in the

country in which the marriage will occur stating that they are free to marry.

In some countries, marriage to a national of that country will automatically make the spouse either a

citizen of that country or eligible to become naturalized in that country

Expeditiously:

Marked by or acting with prompt efficiency.

Possessed of, or characterized by, expedition or efficiency and rapidity in action, performed

with, acting with, expedition, quick, speedy

A sending forth or setting forth for the execution. Of some object of consequence. Speed

or promptness in performance. An important journey or excursion for a specific purpose;

The automatic acquisition of a second nationality will not affect U.S. citizenship.

Black’s Law Dictionary 6th Ed.

Permanent:

Continuing or enduring in the same state, status, place, or the like, without fundamental

marked change, not subject to fluctuation, or, alteration fixed, or intended to be fixed,

lasting, abiding. Stable. not temporary, or transient. Hiatt v. Department of Labor and

Industries, 48 Wash.2d 843, 297 P.2d 244,246

6. Wherefore they are no more twain, but one flesh. What therefore God hath joined

together, let not man put asunder

I do believe that Marie Martine Buchanan to Ashley on Oct 29th 2004 has met all the

requirements. Not only were Marie and Ashley prohibited from being together in their

rightful state of marriage for 19 months of the last 24 months by what appears to be a

rogue department under the heading of ICE formerly called INS within the United States,

staffed with incompetent border guards at;

First event occurred Nov. 3rd 2004 at Ogdensburg Port of Entry, New York State

Just the fact that Marie was married to an HONORABLY discharged veteran should be

enough for him to receive that basic honor…(a veteran that went an fought just on the

principle of ideals that had been instilled in him all through his childhood)

Second event occurred on 12/04/2004 at Roosevelt Port of Entry, NY, Christmas

gift for December 2004.

They saw her face on T.V, she said; she was visiting a friend. They refused her entry

by ten of this Nation’s finest incompetents, and saying; “You are married”. Well

Congressman what better friend is there than your spouse? Do you Congressman

McHugh have some better friend than your wife?

Marie also told them exactly where she was going: 6B, Talcott Street Upper,

Massena, NY, 13662-2224 and this was at less than 10 miles from the Roosevelt Port of Entry.

Date of inspection: 12/04/2004

Time of Inspection: 7:10 p.m.

Applicant for Admission Advisement

US Department of Justice

Immigration and Naturalization Service

See CBPEO Suffokta Monday 12/05/2004 through Friday 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Phone: (315) 764-0677

fax: (315) 764-0310

It’s written this at: http://www.uscis.gov/files/form/I-130instr.pdf, p.

4. : “When a petition is approved for the husband, wife, parent or unmarried
minor child of a United States citizen, these persons are classified as immediate
relatives. They do not have to wait for a visa number because immediate
relatives are not subject to the immigrant visa limit”. The approval notice I-797
Notice of Action was made on
August 1st, 2005 by the department of Homeland
Security so why did they make them wait until
June 8th, 2006 when her Immigrant Visa
was issued? She was not supposed to have waited for a visa number as
soon as her petition was approved by department of Homeland Security

Marie was about to be denied entry once again on May 24th 2006 at the US Embassy in Montreal, Quebec, Canada .
Finally allowed to entered on June 16th 2006 at Fort Covington Port Of Entry

Honor widows who have no other family members to care for them.( Honor

widows that are widows indeed.

They devour widows’ houses and say long prayers to cover it up. They will

receive greater condemnation!"

A false witness will not go unpunished, And he who tells lies will not escape

Her husband Ashley died within the 4 year period of anguish, which the ICE / INS helped

to induce, with their careless, wanton, disrespect, and disregard for these two beings.

Hmmm two friendly Nations with a common border. Which appear to employ antagonists

as public relation agents, in their department.

‘You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor. Do not give false

witness against your neighbour

Yet for some reason you CONGRESSMAN, fall for the ICE / INS line and it was

also stated that Marie Buchanan did not submit her ‘Visa Packet”… Marie Buchanan’s

passport is stamped clearly with the date June 16, 2006 and it is

initialed by the ‘agent’ that allowed her to pass through the Fort Covington Port of

Entry Then you tell me congressman, whom it was that failed to perform

their routine duties in a competent honorable and forthright manner?

Here is a point to ponder on; Is it the function of the immigration department to

antagonize new immigration applicants? Is it the immigration departments

ultimate goal to fiend off those that seek this new land? To have them throw

their hands up in disgust, and walk away?

Woe unto you lawyers……

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge,

I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law

of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

Or lets try this scenario: All the R.I.C.O. orientated congress would rather give

AMNESTY to the “illegals” grand fathering them in and ahead of those that have filed

legally, to which they can continue to hold clubs, over their heads, for their own personal

ulterior motives? Just what is congress’ insane reasoning for trying to scam the people

with the need for “IMMIGRATION REFORM” when the forefathers adequately made

provisions for the problem?

Maybe this third scenario would be more applicable; The reason for ‘IMMIGRATION REFORM” ,

could it be that CONGRESS wanted “immigration reform”…to allow those that are not born in

The CONTINENTAL UNITED STATES. to become legally eligible to run for the office of the president?

Marie Buchanan has fought for reunification by writing many, many letters to the Canadian
officials. She has fought through letters to get help for her husband who was
ill. She wanted to be at his side during this trying time, but the governments
prevented this by dragging their feet.


They were separated in the middle of their honeymoon by the
Ogdensburg
Port of Entry when in fact they were not supposed to be separated.

Reminds me of the days during alcohol prohibition, when the border guards were

bought off, of course if that didn’t work, they found other ways of getting their highly

prized cargo across International border…

They rob widows by taking their houses and then say long prayers to make themselves

look good. The scribes will receive the most severe punishment."

Black’s Law Dictionary 6th Ed.

Permanent:

Continuing or enduring in the same state, status, place, or the like, without fundamental

Marked change, not subject to fluctuation, or, alteration fixed, or intended to be fixed;

lasting; abiding; stable; not temporary, or transient. Hiatt v. Department of Labor and

Industries, 48 Wash.2d 843, 297 P.2d 244,246

“Upon endorsement serves as temporary I – 551 evidencing permanent (OXYMORON)

residence for one year” (ABOVE YOU WILL FIND THE LEGAL DEFINITION OF “PERMANENT”

FROM BLACK’S LAW DICTIONARY 6th Ed.

They stopped Ashley from visiting Canada, they stopped Marie from visiting her husband

In the U.S All that time, technically, legally she was and is a bona fide citizen of the United

States.

Rest assured we do not need ‘immigration reform’. All one has to do is abide by the

requirements set forth within the document called ‘The Constitution of the united states.

What I have come to find out, this is a common everyday occurrence, which could

possibly be one of the main reasons the INS / ICE is so far behind in approving citizenship,

status for the many thousands that have already applied. This, leads to another thought,

maybe this is how CONGRESS and the INS / ICE would like to alleviate their incompetent

performance thus far….

As a SOVEREIGN American citizen of the united Republics I am imploring you to do the

right thing and stop this persecution that is being directed, and employed against the

widow Marie Buchanan.

P.S.

“greatest menace to freedom is an inert people" One of the paradigms people face

involves the acronym F.E.A.R.: False Evidence Appearing Real A mind is a terrible thing

to waste. " IGNORANCE " & "TUNNEL VISION SYNDROME" are two of man’s deadliest

diseases.

P.S.S. "Government is like a fire, useful in the fireplace, but if it gets out of its place, it will

consume everything you own"

Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor.

at the mouth of two witnesses, or at the mouth of three witnesses, shall the

matter be established.

Semper Fidelis; My way of life is to preserve these united Republics, their’ constitutions,

and the Constitution of these United Republics as a whole. Nations within their own right…

What about your way of life congressman?

Sincerely,

Larsar

P.O.Box 34 Boonville, Indiana 47601

Adam Bartlett:812 Cell:, email: adb4jesus

Kevin Wilson:812- Cell:, email: kjw1975

Web Page: http://www.bibleheadquarters.org

To Whom It May Concern:

I have known Marie Buchanan for about 6-7 years and I also knew of her marriage to Mr.

Ashley Buchanan. I also know of the ministry they shared and have participated in it with

them on several occasions. I have followed Marie’s battle with the American Government

since her marriage and trying to get into the United States and gain citizenship. It is amazing

to me how many ‘illegals’ get the red carpet treatment, yet a Veteran and his new bride are

treated like common criminals.

The ordeal that Marie has had to endure throughout her marriage and Ashley’s illness and

subsequent death is something you would expect in a communist country. I am appalled

at the way this situation has been handled and most especially the treatment in making

Marie’s transition into our country a literal nightmare.

I believe there should be a complete investigation into the V.A. Hospital that treated Ashley

and I believe criminal charges should be filed against those that were negligent. As for the

current situation about Marie’s status into this country, that should not even be in question.

This government owes it to the wife of a Veteran to make this situation right and stop

harassing her in her attempt to become a citizen. In fact this government, this fictitious entity

owes it’s very existence to the ‘PEOPLE’.

With treatment like this it is no surprise that there are hundreds of thousands of “illegals”

because trying to do what is right is impossible with our incompetent government.

As an American citizen and a Veteran of our Armed Forces I am imploring

you to do the right thing and stop this crazy charade with Marie.

Sincerely, Adam Bartlett
