Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is one of the greatest people who ever lived not because he was a civil rights activist, but because of his great faith!
My Eyes Have Seen the Coming of the Glory of The Lord!
Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is my hero. Not just because he was a civil rights activist, but because of his great faith! He was advised not to go and march or protest in Memphis, Tennessee by his staff and advisors. They told he to stay home and do not take the risk of being killed. But he refused to listen to their advice and he carried on his mission in the name of the Lord! He was gunned downed the next day after making one of the greatest sermons I have ever heard at a church there. He went there to support city garbage workers who were on strike. They were tired of being treated unfairly. He said he has been to the mountain top and seen the coming on the glory of the Lord! He said he was not concerned about his own life he was more concerned about doing God's will even if it meant death!
Wow! What great faith!
Dr. Martin Luther King gave his last sermon at Mason Temple in Memphis, Tennessee, on April 3, 1968, was the last public appearance before his assassination the next day. King, in Memphis to support a strike by garbage workers, gives a poignant vision of the victorious future of the civil rights struggle, but without him there to witness its final triumph. To many in the audience and beyond, King’s speech seemed to predict his own death. - See more at: http://www.blackpast.org/1968-martin-luther-king-jr-i-ve-been-mountaintop#sthash.UPrXVOkd.dpuf
