Dropping at&t wireless... [28 Jan 2004|12:17am]
I just found out that At&t is going to be bought by Cingular wireless. Crazy uh? I mean At&t used to be the big bad boy on the block that could take buisness away from you because they had killer deals. Only now they have to gip there own customers to get buisness and that is what sucks. I will give you 2 examples for what At&t has done to my family and I.

(1) On the phone I use, it has an indicator that tells me when I am in roaming or getting close to roaming. So when I drove to Georgia, I didn't use it. I only used it when the indicator read, 'at&t' service. Or when it read 'Extended Area' which means you are in an area that at&t has connections with another company. I never once used it when it was in roaming, well wait, there was one time in Mississippi...Jackson...but it was only for 15 min and it was an emergency. So anyways, we get back home from a week long trip and guess what bill awaits us? A 436 US dollar bill...I am not talk german marks or Japanese ¥. US DOLLARS! We contested it of course and they told us that we were roaming in Georgia, but the phone lied! It said 'at&t' service on it. I mean geeze, if I was in roaming! tell me! Do you think I would rack up even 50 dollars in roaming charges?! Heck no. So anyways, they forced us to pay it. Oh and by the way here is an example of their customer care service.

(1) My mom called and talked to 'Guy' and he said that he could credit our account with $50...and he kept asking my mother if that was ok. My mother kept asking for more, I mean at least half. He wouldn't budge. So when my mom asked to speak to his supervisor, the guy wedged in there that we were ok with our current contract ending in 2005...NO WAY! We only signed up for a 12 month contract, and it was supposed to be gone in June. So anyways, He told me that when he credited us the $50 dollars it extended our contract another 6 months! He never said anything of the sort. So then my mom said we wanted the $50 but refused to extend the contract, I then encouraged her to end it and call back and get someone else.
She got a woman named, 'brenda'. This woman said while looking at our account that our contract has been extended and that $50 was creditted to us, but then taken off. That little jerk extended the contract even though we told him no, and then took the 50 away. This woman fixed it for us...and we had to pay the full amount.

(2) Just yesterday we received a bill from At&t wireless, saying that we owe then 190 dollars!!! NO WAY I say...It says on there that we were late with our last bill, which is an outright lie. The billing statement says that if you contest a bill you have an extended time to pay. They didn't give us that extention. Little buggers.

So in conclusion, SCREW At&t...I know of a non-profit organazation that had to pay 7,000 dollars to At&t because At&t changed the contract and didn't inform them of the change.

I am going with either Verizon or Sprint.

PLEASE DONT SUPPORT AT&T, THEY DONT DESERVE IT. Past this thing around if you want.

I went to school this morning and just wanted to get it over with. The hour and a half of math that it was. When it was over, I left and proceded right to Destiny. I arrived, and went inside thinking I am only going to be staying for 10min and then I am going to leave and go home.

But Praise God I didn't leave. I got my fire re-birthed for Jesus today. I dont even know if I said that right. But friends, God's heart is broken. Its so broken that God sent his Son into the world that his people would not go to hell...and there is 35,000 everyday going to hell. Thats the number from the parts of the world that have never heard the name of Jesus. Thats the number that die everyday.

Oh Lord! Why dont we treat everytime we meet someone as a divine appointment? Why do we say we are too busy? If we are too busy to even tell them about Jesus, then we are too busy to be Christians. Every cashier, waitress, co-worker, family needs to hear about what Jesus did for them. I am in tears friends. This really hit me, The Lord has been moving on my heart to do what he wants about speaking to people out of the blue. I am listening now Lord...Please Forgive me Lord for ignoring your call and being rebellious against your heart for the lost souls.

The First Command in the Bible is 'Go forth,be fruitful and Fill the earth'...What are we doing? I know what I am doing. I am not going forth, I am not being fruitful and I am not filling the earth with the love of Jesus...Even the knowledge.

***OH LORD! How I ache in my soul for your heart. Take this hard heart out of me. Rip it out Lord, and place your broken heart in me. Broken for your children. Lord I want to laugh like you, I want to weep for the lost like you. Lord I want to see like you see! I want to talk like you talk! I want to go where you want. I need revelation! I need illumination in my heart today...Oh lord......Oh lord...forgive me for being a failure at this. Forgive me oh Lord. Lord, you love the lost men and women so much, you gave all you had. You gave your son. Your only son. OH Lord...why? Why your only son? Why do you love us so much? I dont know if I will ever know, but I know this...I THANK YOU! I would be dead man walking without you. I would be nothing without you. YOU sent your only son...I dont know if I could bring myself to do that, because I know the world, and the world is selfish and would only turn to sin like I did at one point. Oh...Jesus...I need you in this hour. My heart cries for you, I cry for you out Lord in no shame. Your my God. Show me the people that need you and I will go. Show me the children that need you, the girls, the boys...Oh Lord...why do we wait? why did I wait? Why Do I still wait now?...Touch me...God you are love, and I seriously need love right now....I need love that no woman can give. I need your love. No woman completes me, only you do. I love Kendra. God you know I do. I am not saying I dont, but God you are all that matters in this existance. I will obey what you command, or I will die trying. If I have to go to North Korea and shed a little blood just so 2 people hear your name, and hear what you did for them. Oh Lord! Here! Take my Body I am yours.***

Friends, my heart is broken before God and seriously need to be broken everyday.
I am gonna go cry some more with my Lord and praise Him for all his goodness and His justness, and cry out more for his broken heart.

How can it be that God is love?
When blood rolls down upon our land
And fathers lose their only son
Where is the hope?
Oh God we pray for white ribbon day

How can it be that you could love?
When blood ran down that wooden cross
Your father gave his only son
You came for peace
You came to die for white ribbon day

And we pray for peace
To flood our hearts again
Only God can save our nation now
And we long for joy to fill our streets again
Only God can save our nation now

How can it be that God is just?
When flesh is torn from young and old
And children run in bloody fields
Where is the hope?
Oh God we pray for white ribbon day

And we pray for peace
To flood our hearts again
Only God can save our nation now
And we long for joy to fill our streets again
Only God can save our nation now

Hallelujah, hallelujah
Hallelujah for white ribbon day

And can it be that You are just
When flesh was torn for young and old?
And here we stand saved by Your blood
We'll stand with courage
We'll live and die for white ribbon day

Hallelujah, hallelujah,
Hallelujah for white ribbon day

Lets see...Last night....Ah yes....*dreamy state* *harp plays*
Well last night I went out to eat with my good friends Caleb and Bobby Jackson. I love Bobby Jackson's name. Its just like wow...its a cool name. He is black too so it works out really well. My name is just John Hill...very blah, very white name. Same for Caleb...Caleb Pendleton...another blah white name...but before I continue I better stop before they get upset...

So yeah, we went to a an italian resturant last night, 'Bedino's'. Awesome resturant. One of the best italian resturants. So we sat down and we started talking about guy things and a paticular annoyinsh we have. lol. Anyone who wonders who that person is can email me for the full story. So yeah, that was fun. I ordered 'Angel Hair Pasta with Artichoke Hearts'....DELICIOUS! The guys ordered Chicken parmaseon or however you spell it. Today is not my day for yeah...Then half way through the dinner, someone calls Bobby's cell phone, and then 2 sec later calls again, and then calls Caleb's phone and then uses his sisters' cell phone to call them both. lol...we didn't want to pick up because we were involved in a serious discussion. Well...we thought it was. So yeah we didn't pick up. Then I got the 2 numbers and put them in my phone and called them back...and well..he called me back twice, but I turned my phone off...Needless to say, it was really mean of us to not pick up...but it was If someone did that to me though I would just turn off my phone and not give them a chance to do that. Anywyas

After dinner, Caleb and I left to go to Justin P's house. Then we took him over to a place called 'Ground Zero' which is a christian owned hangout place, with games and pool tables and all the like. It was alright. Wasn't the greatest thing in the world but we got to hang out.

Then on the way back home to my house Caleb and I jammed to 'These 5 Down'. Awesome band. They came out in 2000, but I just discovered them like 3 weeks ago. But its awesome music if you like hard rock and it has a real modern sound to it. Kinda like Justifide just a bit harder. Oh yeah...and then Caleb dropped me off at home...
Now today, Caleb and I and Kendra are heading out to Tree of Life church at 6 something. I think I might pick up Kendra first, and then Caleb, just because I want to spend some alone time with Kendra. hmmm. yeah...that will be good. I want to express to her my love and tell her about all I read in the bible. I love Kendra. I declare my love for her not just before the world with blurty, but I declare it among everyone I meet, and before my God, your God.

Hey while I am on subject, In Duet. 28, it says that the nation that righteousness chosen nation that resist God will be attacked by a cruel enemy that doesn't care who it kills; children or grandmothers. They will be a people that you can't understand, you dont know what they are saying. They are ruthless and will destroy everything you hide behind.~~~~Sounds like a Muslim world. Call me crazy, but thats what I got out of reading my bible this morning. Well I got more...but yeah...that stood out.

The Insanity of Jesus

I want to tell you about the insanity of Jesus.

You may ask, "What kind of statement is that, Brother Jesse?"

Well, what you've got to realize is that many non-Christians believe that Jesus was insane. It's true. Look at Jesus' mamma even. She thought He was nuts. His brothers thought that too. Even His own staff thought so.

Was Jesus insane? Well, they thought He was. They thought He was completely crazy.

Once Jesus asked, "Who is My mother? Who are My brothers?"

Peter heard that and said, "My Lord, He doesn't even know His mamma anymore. Things are getting bad, Jack. There's no telling what's going to happen now." And His staff began to doubt Him.

Jesus was making people mad because He was healing the sick, raising the dead, casting out devils and breaking the bondage of religion. He was setting people free by the power that operated in His life. Why was that considered insanity? That was nothing more than the will of God. Yet people still thought Jesus was crazy.

Can't you just see His disciples huddled together? Peter's telling Matthew, "He's getting worse."

Jesus preached to the common people, but one day the Greeks came to see Him. We're talking about the Greeks here, you understand? We're talking Cadillac and Continental donkeys, Rolls Royce mules. They came to see the Man.

You could just see the disciples saying, "We're gonna eat out tonight, Jack, glory to God! Hallelujah! We're going to have us an offering tonight! We got the Greeks. Glory to God, the Greeks! These are not the Galilaeans. These are the Greeks!"

The Greeks walked up to Philip and Andrew and said, "We would see Jesus!" (John 12:21.). And the disciples thought, Praise God! Wow! We got these boys on our side!

The disciples said, "Well, just a minute; we'll go talk to Him." So Philip said, "Jesus? Jesus! Jesus, come here. Come on."

And Jesus said, "What, Philip?"

"Listen," Philip said, "You're going to love - you're gonna lo-ove this. There are some Greeks out there! The Greeks, Jesus! The intellectuals, the Ph.Ds. And they said, 'We would see Jesus.' Do You want to see them, Jesus?"

Jesus looked at him and said, "Hmmm. It's time for the Son of man to be glorified. If a corn of wheat falls on the ground and dies, it will abide by itself; but if it dies, it bringeth forth much fruit!" (John 12:24.).

Say, what? Philip must have been thinking, Corn? I can just imagine what went through Philip's mind. He's thinking, Jesus is going nuts. Jesus said, "Ah, corn, wheat, die, abide." What's He talking about?

So Philip went back to Andrew, and Andrew said, "Well, what'd He say? What'd He say? What'd He say?"

Philip tried to explain it to him. "He said - well, He said something about corn, wheat and dying. I don't know what He said!" Philip couldn't even repeat the thing, man. It was too confusing. Philip told Andrew, "It's one of those days. He's beside Himself again."

Andrew said, "Philip, you didn't explain it to Him right. These are the Greeks, man! The Greeks, you understand! The Greeks! Go over there and ask Him again."

So Philip goes back to Jesus and says, "Jesus, let me say this a little more slowly. The Greeks are outside. The Greeks, the Ph.Ds. You know, they could bless the ministry. We won't have to sleep on a hill tonight. We could sleep at the Marriott if You'd just talk to them. You understand? I don't mind sleeping on the grass, but a bed would be nice once in a while. And, Jesus, they said, 'We would see Jesus.' So, whatcha think?"

Jesus looks at Philip and says, "Unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit" (John 12:24 RSV).

"Ehhh, ehhh, ehhh. Hehhhh. Ohhhhhhh," Philip says. "I see."

Philip had to go back to the Greeks and say, "Uh, fellas, yeah. He ain't seeing nobody today at all. He wants to fast and pray."

Jesus was insane according to the world, but He was in right fellowship according to God. Everyone else just had to get the right perspective on things in order to understand Him. Jesus was talking to a bigger group than just the Greeks. His words were going out to the whole world! He was speaking truth that could set people free!

What did He mean when He said, "Unless a grain of wheat falls into the ground and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it produces much grain"? He was talking about His death, burial, resurrection and ascension. Philip was the one who was nuts! Philip couldn't figure out a thing because He thought Jesus was off His rocker.

And how many times has God told you to do something that made you think He was nuts? Maybe you decided you were going to give someone $20, but God said to give $100. You thought, That's crazy! I can't give $100! so you say, "But, God, that's a $100, and he doesn't even deserve it!" But God is simply trying to get you blessed. God sees the harvest your $100 will bring you.

God may tell you things that won't make sense right at the moment - things that even sound crazy at the time. But if God's really in it, it will make a whole lot of sense later. Remember, God can see the past, present and future. He knows what one little act of obedience can do for you or for someone else. He knows how much you will be blessed.

Sometimes it may seem crazy to believe what God tells you. But it's not - ultimately it's a blessing!

I tell you what! I speak the truth!....

I thank God for Kendra. In every aspect of her, I thank God for her...She keeps her laungage clean, and she doesn't want to participate in anything that even could be considered sin. She loves our Lord with all her heart, and I stand and appluad her. I stand beside her to walk with her as her future husband. I love her.

College Sucks. [12 Jan 2004|09:46am]
My school sucks.

Ok, You have heard about my first day, and how when we got there the teacher didn't teach us anything. His excuse was that his girlfriend came down with the flu and he had to go to her house late last night to take care of her. The result of that was that he wasn't able to do a lesson for his class. So he thinks he would be really cool and let us go early. I just wasted $2.00 in gas driving over there and back to have my teacher do that to me. I would rather have learned something and gotten something out of it.

Then there was today. I went to my Freshman Composition Class. Guess what? Teacher was late. Teacher then had the wrong book for her class, and was puzzled when she found out she was teaching 1301 and not 1302. !!! I mean there are levels of insanity at college, but this is pushing it. So far I have spent approx 5.00 on gas driving out there and for nothing. NOTHING! Wasting my gas and my precious sleep. Did I mention I have to wake up at 6am to get there on time at 8am. This is not doing wonders for my sleep. This is called an instiution of higher learning. I learned how to be lazy and incompetant in high school. I dont need that from my college.

I Go to NVC for those of you who are wondering, and if this happens again. I am going to make a formal complaint to the main office about certain teachers. Yes, lax teachers are good for those who dont like to study hard. But I want to study hard. I want to do my best to maintain a GPA 3.5+. I can't do it by teachers being lax. Oh geeze...I am flusterd by this. I need to go take a bath in Chicken Noodle Soup. I think that would help. Maybe without the noodles. Just chicken broth. Yes I beleive that would do nicely. Well God Bless all. I need sleep. bye bye

well, I went and had my first day of college. And the teacher released us early and didn't require any of us to do any homework. All we had was orientation. And that was it. There were about 15 students in the class and only about half of them were there. So yeah. I am tired. So...tired. I got up at 600am...and I am sleepy. Night Night.

PS. Kendra if you want *wink wink* give me a ring on my cell and I can call you back so we can talk. [c:
