Living on the Yakama Reservation
 
Here is what comprises The Yakama Reservation it has 600,000 acres in Timberland 400,000 acres Rangeland, 200,00 Agriculture land and 200,00 land sites. 11,000 citizens and a 14-member Tribal Council 
Since 1855 Fishing, hunting game and plants was possible to hunt and raise.
In 2000 they put a band on all alcohol use in the entire Reservation. 
2013 voted to not allow Marijuana to be grown on the Reservation. We have many different tribes with different Languages. They all want to respect mother nature and the treaty still stands with complete sovereignty. They are religiously diverse with the Long House, Shaker Churches, Independent, and Indian Mission at McKinley, Assembly of God, Methodist, Catholic and other denominations with the feeling of respect for all religious traditions. Yet practice their own that continues to show disregard for Biblical principle to allow the to achieve their potential.
Heritage College was begun in 1981 and has 1172 students in 2014.
They love to dance in full costume. In 2011 Started to have own licenses Plates that gave them a right to go anywhere with the cost of $25.00 a year. This is a new chapter that was given by the Government to be independent with an Arrowhead decal to be a sovereign nation acting under their law, so we have two laws in our area. County and Indian and it is caused a lot of concern, that needs to be work out with all involved with law enforcement together, so we have justice for all.  This jurisdiction came in 2013. They have Forest enterprise, Casino, Culture center, Wild life, Gaming commission, Yakama Power and Internet services, and many more enterprises. The State Patrol is no longer Patrolling on the Reservation till they are trained in Indian Jurisdiction.
They are dealing with missing persons, lawlessness, drugs, alcohol, sexuality issues, family dysfunction, absenteeism, lack of pride to keep things clean and full of bitterness about what happen in the past! 
So here we are as a Church representing the King of king and Lord of lords who created us all for goodwill and peace. We are dealing with Satan everyday for he was cast out of heaven for wanting to do his thing and sent to our planet earth to deceive Adam and Eve while in Paradise. Remember he is always mad for he did not get his way. When God created man, He said to him in Genesis 2:16 every tree of the garden thou mayest freely eat, 17. BUT of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, thou shalt not eat, for in the day thou eatest thereof thou shalt surely die.   Then God said, in verse 18 It is not good that man is alone; I will make him a help meet. Verse 19 out of the ground (dirt) he created all forms of life and named them. Verse 20 He gave names to all beast and fowls and that is what they are still called. Verse 21 He caused a great sleep to fall on Adam and took one of his ribs and closed up the flesh, Verse 22 The rib He took from the man and made a woman and bought her to the man.

 Verse 23 WHOA! What a Women she is now bone of my bones and flesh of my flesh. Verse 24 They will grow up and have to leave father and mother to continue to be one flesh. Verse 25 They are naked and not ashamed. So, we see something that gives life as Husband and Wife Power in Marriage they leave and start their own home. They Cleave to one another as they are intimate with one another and know how to be transparent with one another, nothing to hide.
Then we see Satan who was cast out of heaven very subtil, able to deceive or trick people in believing he was God. Genesis 3: 1 he said unto the women Yes, has not God said, you shall not eat of every tree. of the garden. Verse 2 The women said unto the serpent, we may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden, verse 3 but of the fruit of the tree which is in the mist of the garden, God hath said, you shall not eat of it, neither shall you touch it, lest you die. Verse 4 The serpent said unto the women, Ye shalt not surely die, verse 5 for God doth know that in the day you eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened and you will be as gods, knowing good and evil. Notice the complex easy way to evil. Verse 6 The women saw the tree as good for food, it was pleasant to the eye, a tree to be desired to make one wise, She took and ate, and gave to her husband and he did eat. Verse 7 eyes where open they knew they were naked and sewed fig leaves together, and made aprons. It is so important we see desire, take and give what is right so we do not have to hide the evil. Strange nakedness is seen today as something that is ok, and it leads to all kinds of behavior that is criminal. People are not ashamed of doing wrong it seem to be I am going to get away from the consequences and we never no for evil is getting out of hand to were lawlessness is rampant; who care!
Verse 8 shows them hiding, yet they heard the voice of God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and Adam and Eve Hiding from Gods presence among the trees f the garden. Smart right they are going to escape judgement. Verse 9 The Lord God called to Adam, Where art you? God always know where we are and what we have done. We do not hid from God our wrong behaviors or attitudes. Verse 10 Adam Said I heard Your voice and I was Afraid. Verse 11 God said, who told you your naked? Hast thou eaten of the tree, whereof I commanded thee that thou shalt not eat? Verse 12 Adam Said, the women whom thou gave me she gave me of the tree, and I did eat. Lord help us to see any time we blame anyone else we are pointing three fingers at ourselves. It is not my brother, or my sister, it is me oh Lord, standing in the need of prayer. 
Lord Help us as Your creation realize we are becoming bitterer, for we have to hid, for the simple reason we are not ashamed of the junk we carry in our lives, or yards, or our homes. We are seeing dysfunction in every area of life and in some areas, it is out of control and we are hiding from the truth as evil is running wild and no one is able to bring order back into the governments of the world, including our economic and our religious world. 
I know God has not forgotten who we are and where we are and He is walking among people in our world getting their attention as thousands are coming to know the peace of God as they experience abiding in the vine; Jesus as John 15 shows and tells us how. God did not come to destroy life but to restore life. He cursed Adam and Eve as well as our earth, and we see the results with weeds in our ground and weeds in our life, sucking the life right out of us until we are provided and protected by the plenty of Love from the Lords goodwill and peace. It is still the way true and life that God as give to combat the evil that wants to deceive us.
I hope you’re seeing the truth that God gave to all to be set free of the bondages Satan places upon us as sin, and we ask God to forgive us and cleanse us from all sins of lusting for evil.
Never forget God created you for a future with Him now and after we die and go to our reward of either heaven or hell. Choose the Lord while you alive and get life full of love, mercy and grace to see others saved to become a part of the Kingdom of God!
