The first encounter with a cop was when I was a kid. In 1979, I was a 4th grader playing AYSO soccer at Westmoor HS. I must have been 80 lbs. I found some nunchucks in the bushes and I was showing it to my teammates when a white cop rushed me and all I remember is him sticking his fingers in my face and pushing my head back. My Aunt Lucy who took me and my cousin to the game was next to us and flew over to my rescue and was about to kick the cop’s ass into the next life.

As a 5th grader, I was walking home with 2 filipino classmates from JFK on Hillside near Gambetta sometime in the afternoon when a cop driving towards us on the opposite side of the street turns his car right into the driveway in front us.  A white cop jumps out of his car and demands for our gang nicknames.  I don’t remember what the 2 filipinos kids said but when he asked me, the only nickname I had was “Baby” because I was the youngest in my family and that's what everyone called me.  LOL.  He looked disappointed because he was hoping we were some hard core 5th grade criminals he could lock up.  The mentality of a cop is so whacked where they pick on kids to make their quotas.

My next encounter was when I was 14 and The California State Welterweight Champion Boxer training for the US Nationals and jogging down Hillside Blvd near War Memorial and a cop car pulls in front me, white cop jumps out and slams me against the car and frisks me. He said I looked like somebody. Heck!  We all look like somebody!  Cops can easily make this LIE up to violate your 4th Amendment right that they swear to defend, uphold and preserve.  There's no recourse. If you challenge them, they will punk you around.  They just want to make their quota because they are essentially mercenaries.  Spooky!

At 15, I worked at Matthew's TV Top of the Hill Daly City. I lived with my Uncle Roy & Aunt Lucy and my uncle was picking me up. As I waited outside, I looked up and saw 2 cops (Asian & White) cruising by and mistakenly looked the Asian cop in his eye. They then turn their lights on, jump out of their car, and put me against the wall and began frisking me. My Uncle Roy at that moment arrived and the store manager came out to my rescue.  The cops went with the “You fit the description of someone” ploy to violate my 4th Amendment.  And since 65% of cops do not have college degrees, it's most likely that they have not studied the U.S. Constitution of which they regularly violate over and over.  

At 16, I was learning to drive and my older college friend who had his license was letting me practice with him and his car.  We drove up Guadalupe Canyon from E. Market St. when we pass a cop car by Price St next to JFK.  In less than 30 seconds, their lights go on.  I pull over and turn off the car.  The cop on the speaker commands me to slowly get out of the car with hands raised.  I step out and 2 white cops have their guns drawn pointed at me.  He asked me what was in my pocket and I said a brush.  I remember being told to slowly remove it.  After that fiasco, the cop tells me that he pulled me over because I was swerving.  Yah, right! 

Amendment IV

The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers, and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be violated, and no warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause, supported by oath or affirmation, and particularly describing the place to be searched, and the persons or things to be seized.



I have many more encounters where cops have profiled me that I will write about later.

Happily Ever After? by Tu

Happily Ever After?
by Tu

Forever in search we be
of that happily ever after
That place abounding 
In love, joy, peace and laughter
That spot we find the treasure
And pleasure 
of our soul
Where we know 
We will not be in want
But getting stupid fricken drunk in love
Not only in sexy romantic amor 
But where all our needs and desires 
want no more
Just being completely content 
and satisfied 
Cup running over
Heart occupied 
With La la land
Feeling like a sweet MJ high 
Getting heaven sent
Floating in the sky 
Groovin' on some kind of psychedelic euphoric bliss
Where the most incredible kiss 
Has landed
On your wish. 
But how many of us ever leave this life
Having tasted that joy
Of the fairytale poison?
Not this boy!
Have you found your happiness
Or just feeling happy-less?

The Sighs of Life...

For those in amor....

For the living know that they will die,
    but the dead know nothing;
they have no further reward,
    and even their name is forgotten.
Their love, their hate
    and their jealousy have long since vanished;
never again will they have a part
    in anything that happens under the sun.
Go, eat your food with gladness, and drink your wine with a joyful heart, for God has already approved what you do. Always be clothed in white, and always anoint your head with oil. Enjoy life with your wife,whom you love, all the days of this meaningless life that God has given you under the sun—all your meaningless days. For this is your lot in life and in your toilsome labor under the sun. Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might, for in the realm of the dead, where you are going, there is neither working nor planning nor knowledge nor wisdom.
Ecclesiastes 9:5-10

Who did YESHUA come to REDEEM and give REDEMPTION to? By Tuese Ahkiong

Who did YESHUA come to REDEEM and give REDEMPTION to?
By Tuese Ahkiong


REDEEM/ REDEMPTION – Being under the Old Covenant Law and bought back from DEATH.  Only Israel had life and died. 

Redeem, Redemption

A — 1: ἐξαγοράζω  
(Strong's #1805 — Verb — exagorazo — ex-ag-or-ad'-zo )
a strengthened form of agorazo, "to buy" (see BUY , No. 1), denotes "to buy out" (ex for ek), especially of purchasing a slave with a view to his freedom. It is used metaphorically (a) in  Galatians 3:13 ; 4:5 , of the deliverance by Christ of Christian Jews from the Law and its curse; what is said of lutron (RANSOM, No. 1) is true of this verb and of agorazo, as to the Death of Christ, that Scripture does not say to whom the price was paid; the various suggestions made are purely speculative; (b) in the Middle Voice, "to buy up for oneself," Ephesians 5:16 ; and  Colossians 4:5 , of "buying up the opportunity" (RV marg.; text, "redeeming the time," where "time" is kairos, "a season," a time in which something is seasonable), i.e., making the most of every opportunity, turning each to the best advantage since none can be recalled if missed. 
Note: In  Revelation 5:9 ; 14:3,4 , AV, agorazo, "to purchase" (RV) is translated "redeemed." See PURCHASE.

Hebrews 9:15  Therefore he is the mediator of a new covenant, so that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance, SINCE A DEATH HAS OCCURRED THAT REDEEMS THEM FROM THE TRANSGRESSIONS COMMITTED UNDER THE FIRST COVENANT.

***BOOM!!!  Did you read that?  “Redeems them from the transgressions committed under THE FIRST COVENANT?  Are people today under the first covenant? NO.  Do people today need to get redeemed from transgression committed under the first covenant?  NO.  


Notice how throughout the Old Testament YHWH REDEEMS ISRAEL.

Deuteronomy 21:8  Accept atonement, O Lord, for YOUR PEOPLE ISRAEL, WHOM YOU HAVE REDEEMED, and do not set the guilt of innocent blood in the midst of your people Israel, so that their blood guilt be atoned for.’
2 Samuel 7:23  And WHO IS LIKE YOUR PEOPLE ISRAEL, THE ONE NATION ON EARTH WHOM GOD WENT TO REDEEM TO BE HIS PEOPLE, making himself a name and doing for them great and awesome things by driving out before your people, WHOM YOU REDEEMED FOR YOURSELF FROM EGYPT, a nation and its gods?
1 Chronicles 17:21  AND WHO IS LIKE YOUR PEOPLE ISRAEL, THE ONE NATION ON EARTH WHOM GOD WENT TO REDEEM TO BE HIS PEOPLE, making for yourself a name for great and awesome things, in driving out nations before your people whom you redeemed from Egypt?
Psalm 25:22  REDEEM ISRAEL, O God, out of all his troubles.

Isaiah 43:1  Israel's Only Savior ] But now thus says the Lord, HE WHO CREATED YOU, O JACOB, HE WHO FORMED YOU, O ISRAEL: “FEAR NOT, FOR I HAVE REDEEMED YOU; I have called you by Name, you are mine.
Isaiah 43:14  Thus says the Lord, YOUR REDEEMER, THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL: “For your sake I send to Babylon and bring them all down as fugitives, even the Chaldeans, in the ships in which they rejoice.
Isaiah 44:6  Besides Me There Is No God ] Thus says the Lord, THE KING OF ISRAEL AND HIS REDEEMER, the Lord of hosts: “I am the first and I am the last; besides me there is no god.
Isaiah 44:23  Sing, O heavens, for the Lord has done it; shout, O depths of the earth; break forth into singing, O mountains, O forest, and every tree in it! FOR THE LORD HAS REDEEMED JACOB, AND WILL BE GLORIFIED IN ISRAEL.
Isaiah 47:4  OUR REDEEMER—the Lord of hosts is his name— IS THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL.
Isaiah 48:17  Thus says the Lord, YOUR REDEEMER, THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL: “I am the Lord your God, who teaches you to profit, who leads you in the way you should go.
Isaiah 49:7  Thus says the Lord, THE REDEEMER OF ISRAEL and his Holy One, to one deeply despised, abhorred by the nation, the servant of rulers: “Kings shall see and arise; princes, and they shall prostrate themselves; because of the Lord, who is faithful, the Holy One of Israel, who has chosen you.”
Isaiah 54:5 For your Maker is your husband, the Lord of hosts is his name; AND THE HOLY ONE OF ISRAEL IS YOUR REDEEMER, the God of the whole earth he is called.

Isaiah 63:16  For you are our Father, though Abraham does not know us, and Israel does not acknowledge us; you, O Lord, are our Father, OUR REDEEMER from of old is your name.


Luke 1:68  “Blessed be the Lord God of Israel, for he has visited and REDEEMED HIS PEOPLE

**Christ visited/came to redeem His people.  Who were His people?

Luke 2:38  And coming up at that very hour she began to give thanks to God and to speak of him to all who were waiting for the REDEMPTION of Jerusalem.

**The redemption of who?  The timing as to when the Redemption would come tells a lot about its nature and for whom it was meant.

Luke 21:28  Now when these things begin to take place, straighten up and raise your heads, because your REDEMPTION is drawing near.”

**The Redemption would happen 1st century 70AD at the destruction of Jerusalem that's what Christ means by saying "when these things begin to take place (wars, Jerusalem surrounded by armies, sun going black, moon turning to blood...).  see context.

Luke 24:21  But we had hoped that he was the one to REDEEM ISRAEL. Yes, and besides all this, it is now the third day since these things happened.

**Redeem who?

Romans 3:24  and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the REDEMPTION that is in Christ Jesus,

***Who was promised redemption?

Romans 8:23World English Bible 

 Not only so, but ourselves also, who have the first fruits of the Spirit, even we ourselves groan within ourselves, waiting for adoption, the redemption of our body (body singular, as in a single corporate body).

**To whom was promised the adoption?  Romans 9:4 "They are Israelites, and to them belong the adoptionthe glory, the covenants, the giving of the law, the worship, and the promises."

1 Corinthians 1:30  And because of him you are in Christ Jesus, who became to us wisdom from God, righteousness and sanctification and REDEMPTION,

***Who needed redemption?  Is it not those who transgressed the law?  Who was under Law?

Galatians 3:13  Christ REDEEMED US from the curse of the law by becoming a curse for us—for it is written, “Cursed is everyone who is hanged on a tree”—

**Are Christians under the curse of THE LAW?  Were Christians ever under THE LAW?  Who was under Law when the New Testament was being written?

Galatians 4:5  to REDEEM THOSE WHO WERE UNDER THE LAW, so that we might receive adoption as sons.

Are Christians today 21st century under The Law???

Ephesians 1:7  In him we have REDEMPTION through his blood, the forgiveness of our trespasses, according to the riches of his grace,

***Who was promised redemption?  The First Covenant Jews

Ephesians 4:30  And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, by whom you were sealed for the day of REDEMPTION.

***Who was promised redemption?  The First Covenant Jews see Romans 9:4
When did the day of Redemption occur?  70AD

Colossians 1:14  in whom we have REDEMPTION, the forgiveness of sins.

***Who gets redeemed and their sins forgiven?  The First Covenant Jews

Titus 2:14  who gave himself for us TO REDEEM US FROM ALL LAWLESSNESS and to purify for himself a people for his own possession who are zealous for good works.

***Who is redeemed from all lawlessness?  Who was under The Law?

Hebrews 9:11-12 But when Christ appeared as a high priest of the good things that have come, then through the greater and more perfect tent (not made with hands, that is, not of this creation)  12 he entered once for all into the holy places, not by means of the blood of goats and calves but by means of his own blood, thus securing an eternal REDEMPTION.

***Who did Christ come to redeem?

Hebrews 9:15  Therefore he is the mediator of a new covenant, so that those who are called may receive the promised eternal inheritance, SINCE A DEATH HAS OCCURRED THAT REDEEMS THEM FROM THE TRANSGRESSIONS COMMITTED UNDER THE FIRST COVENANT.

***BOOM!!!  Did you read that?  “Redeems THEM from the transgressions committed under THE FIRST COVENANT?  Are people today under the first covenant?  Do people today get redeemed?  Who got redeemed?

and they were singing a new song before the throne and before the four living creatures and before the elders. No one could learn that song except THE 144,000 WHO HAD BEEN REDEEMED FROM THE EARTH.  4It is these who have not defiled themselves with women, for they are virgins. It is these who follow the Lamb wherever he goes. These have been REDEEMED FROM MANKIND as firstfruits for God and the Lamb,

***Who were the 144,000 who had been redeemed from the earth/land of Israel?  
Btw, for those of you unaware, Revelation was fulfilled by 70AD.

**Are you redeemed????  I do not believe that I am redeemed because I do not see Scripture teaching that redemption is for me.  It was for those under the first covenant and transgressed IT.
