Jesus Christ the son of the living God this global warning did not come just for a mere curiosity this global warning did not come that man could be laughing and man could be worried no this global warning does not come to cause you to worry or by your finance and or by your circumstances and or by your situation this global warning is a call-up warning this global warning is a call to peace this global warning is a call to repentance this global warning is a call for man and woman to turn away from their sin and come to serve the true and the living God this is what this warning is all about you can feel the wind blowing and this wind that you see blowing right now is a sign is a sign of the time telling you that Jesus Christ the son of the living God that he is coming back again oh yes this sign of the time is not such a simple sign this warning is not just a simple warning you might think you might think or as somebody said it's a warning no it's greater than that

in my house there's tea biscuits coffee no alcohol no drugs no betting slips no whores in the back room but just a bible and a prayer book and a song in my heart I was in the gutter I was in the gutter at the tube station begging for bread but that's where god found me begging for bread now I have a kitchen and I eat steak cooked by my wife's bare hands but when I was there out in the street I got the crumbs under the table but I don't get crumbs under the table I break the bread and drink the wine at the holy communion table to remember where my Jesus died to save my soul and some people say why am I so vehement why am I so passionate about my faith when you have died three times from overdose and been revived when you've been locked up in prison so many times you couldn't find the way out when Jehus the Lamb of God who shed his blood on the cross 2000 years ago can save a wretch like me I'm gonna sing I'm gonna dance I'm gonna shout joyous, happy and free because Jehus saved me the devil thought he had me till I died but Jesus wake me up what did Jesus say? I am the ressurrection and the light he who believes in me will never die

and yet we all know when you talk to a Christian or a Muslim or a Jew they say oh no no no no no no God is male and female you know in Judaism it's Yahhhweh but YES but you read the scriptures and you talk to people and they will always refer to god as HE (HE) always how can the divine be a HE so the spin doctors of their time the patriarchal spin doctors of thousands of years ago did their job very well Moses schmoses Abraham the patriarchs and before them the pharoahs actually if you go back to Egyptian times women probably had more equality than they do right here right now they had more power they had more sexual freedom they had more voice than we have right now in the twenty first century so the list of goddesses goes in Judaism: Shekhinah and then it goes: Isis Astarte Diana Hecate Demeter Kali Inana in that order Isis Astarte Diana Hecate Demeter Kali Inana and these are the sacred feminine and they're not just sacred feminine and it isn't just about the sacred feminine it's about the female archetype that has been written out of history and even the word history what does it mean? His Story Feminists have reclaimed that word now we talk about Herstory Her Story because history is exactly what it means his story written by Dwems mainly a DWEM is a dead white european male that's what we call them at university a Dwem and the pen is mightier than the penis the pen is p n i s is mightier than the penis yes it is

about

A Speakers' Corner is an area where public speaking is allowed. The original and most noted is in the north-east corner of Hyde Park in London, England. Speakers there are allowed to speak as long as the police consider their speeches lawful. I spent an afternoon recording some of the speakers, later recomposing the sound and the spoken text, layering and manipulating my own re-performances with the originating recordings.
