Can you imagine living in a nation where everyone is separated by the color of their skin?
Unfortunately, that is what we had...have...
Who would we be, if we sold one another and gained our whole treasure, through something as sick as human oppression?
It appears we are still in the process of answering this question.
Can you imagine taking a land, through violent hands - through the selling of humans and making them slaves?
This is the story of the Americas - the one in the North and the one in the South. Nations built on a delusion of what the authoritarian “bridge builder” said.
You see, we have been led to believe what a pontiff says, a man in a robe we believe to be "Chosen by God." And what he says is what people believe, even if it's outside of what scripture says.
This is what I’ve learned...
First, it was never a “white man” who started our demise. It was a powerful Italian man who pretended to be God. It was a Spanish Queen who got what she wanted, and many African men, who wanted more power.
Once I did the research and stopped believing all the hype, I came to the realization about how "religious" we are.
History reveals that the trans-Atlantic slave trade did not originate from the common white man hating people for the pigment of their skin. No! History shows it was the Pope of the Catholic Church, and the powerful leaders who ruled over the world, who operated under Satanic strongholds, and put a nation of people into bondage.
Pope Nicholas V granted Portugal and Spain the right to invade, plunder and reduce persons of color to perpetual slavery.
What a divisive way to be! To oppress a person based on the color of their skin.
Satan loves for people to follow their flesh, and finds every way dig his claws in.
Satan loves to cause strife. Unfortunately for humans, that does not take much! Humans tend to be narcissistic and self-centered. They like to believe they are superior to each other.
Ironically, racism is antithetical to the blood of Christ - it’s bases oppression on the color of skin rather than looking at the biblical truth that we are all one blood.
What happened to loving our neighbor as we love ourselves? To identifying a person as another imager of God?
King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella were known as Catholic monarchs, and they invested in an explorer named Christopher Columbus. They sent Columbus out into the world to claim a land and make a name for themselves.
The rich men who lived along the West African coast, the ones who owned mineral-rich land that was loaded with abundant gold, were discontented and had to have more!
It is true! I am not lying to you! Look it up yourself! It’s gluttony at its best!
Spain decided to use African people to create wealth - human commodities for free labor. Other nations saw what Spain had done, and they decided they wanted to join in. Leaders from the Netherlands, France, Denmark and England, saw slavery as a way to earn economic and geopolitical power.
EVERYONE joined in the delusion. EVERYONE believed it was okay to de-humanize a person. EVERYONE believed in slavery “under the name of God.”
Over 12.5 million African men, women and children, were forced into slavery, and the sale of their bodies, and the product of their labor, laid the foundation to where we now live.
Unfortunately, the use of forced labor is not uncommon. Africans and Europeans have been trading goods and people across the Mediterranean Sea forever. And look at Egypt who enslaved the Hebrews - all because they had become prosperous Jews.
The truth is almost every nation and every people are guilty of it.
I mean take a long look at child pornography and sex trafficking - people using men, women and children to satisfy their sexually immorality. It's crazy to believe that human slavery could be such a lucrative business. How could another human being want to purchase adults and children?
It is so sad to think that our America, the land of the free, the land of the brave - was founded on human cruelty and delusional intent.
Don’t we get it?
People were oppressed, brutality beaten, forced into labor and murdered - and it was all instigated by royalty and religion! The Anti-Christ spirit is secretly at work. He justifies himself through social positions.
I mean really?
Who believes that ANY human is just?
Who believes that any human can play God, and make these kind of unbiblical decisions?
Seriously? How could people see Pope Nicholas V as just when he was clearly twisting the Word of God!
It still amazes me that people can be so naive, so easily deceived - believing that any human could have supreme authority is just crazy! How could a person believe that a pope or a priest, or a king or a queen, has divine authority when the Bible clearly states they do not!
I guess they don't understand what the Word of God says.
Don't they know that we ALL fall short of the glory of God, and we ALL need forgiveness for our sin because none of us do exactly what God said!
That is why Jesus came. He has always been the plan!
Jesus said, “Do not misunderstand. I did not come to abolish the Law of Moses or the writings of the prophets, but to fulfill them.” Matthew 5:17
Between the Holocaust and the genocide of Jews to the trans-Atlantic slave trade and the dehumanizing of souls, to the slaughtering of nations such as the Native Americans, to the division we see among races and nations - all was done "in the name of God" and all was done for the betterment of "a more humane civilization."
With all of this ridiculousness - its hard to believe that God still loves us! My God, humans are such a mess!
And yet - here we are today, continuing to make the same mistakes. We walk around holding up signs that make us feel proud!
“Black Lives Matters”
“White Lives Matters”
“Asian Lives Matters”
- and so forth and so on!
Literally, we could go and on!
It all really goes against God. Not an ounce of it is rooted in Christ.
How about we replace our PRIDE with the words, “I see you. God loves you. You matter to me.”
How about we say, “I can forgive you because God forgives me.”
Truly I tell you, I am amazed that people still want to segregate themselves based of their color.
With all that has happened, as found in history and in our Bible, it would make more sense to understand the truth of God based on what the Word of God says?
Acts 17:26 says,
“And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined their pre-appointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings.”
Take a moment to imagine what God must think when we raise our banners high and demand social justice. I wonder how God feels when we blow up places like Planned Parenthood? What would God say about the riots? Would he support or condemn this kind of social justice? What would God say about the organization Black Lives Matters? And how would He feel about us waving our flags?
Would He point and criticize, or would He teach us to trust and obey?
Here's the thing. I love people despite the color of their skin. I choose friends based on the heart within.
Brothers and Sisters In Christ, It is time to stand up and be the Church. The time has come for us to pick up our mat and walk!
The question is - “How do we move forward when we have endured a his and her story of pain, hurt and horror - without creating even more problems?"
My answer is this - it has to start with Christ.
Jesus is the ONLY foundation that can save us from sin and death! He is the ONLY ONE who covers our cracks.
We must get into scripture and see what the Word of God says.
We need to be Bereans. We need to compare the Word of God to Critical Race Theory and the intellectual trends.
The Critical Race Theory (CRT) that circulates many educational systems is based on Marxism and radical revolution. Reformation is not an option because it does not abolish "whiteness." CRT injects systematic guilt into the heart of our nation, and it condemns men, women and children for the color of their skin.
CRT is embedded in the same divination that caused oppression among blacks. CRT believes that white supremacy is inherit in every American thought - despite what the individual thinks. CRT turns us into the masses so that we don't have to focus on ill intent. CRT is based on the color of skin, and defines "whiteness" as inherently bad. CRT is in direct opposition to the teachings of Christ. Perhaps we should consider a scripture to address black and white racism. Oh wait - there is none! Instead, people should teach about love and forgiveness.
The Lord said we are to forgive seventy times seven; sometimes we need to forgive one another, and sometimes we need to forgive ourselves.
Forgiveness is never an easy thing to do. That is why we are called "to endure" while living in this world.
All we have to do is look to the cross. God himself came to in the flesh, as THE sacrificial Lamb to pour out His blood, so that the angel of death will Passover us.
For this - Jesus is to be praised! Yahweh is the One who saves us. And we must always remember that we CAN love one another because God first showed His love us.
Social justice is not a biblical concept. It's based on humanism, utopian socialism and wealth redistribution - despite whether you worked for it or not!
But, this is not to say that we should not help those who are less fortunate than us. The scripture is absolutely clear that we MUST take care of orphans, widows and the poor.
And yet, the scripture says that able-bodied persons are required to work if they are to eat, and God defines this as social responsibility.
The Word of God is very clear!
Scripture says that we are to live socially responsible - everyone working and caring for one another.
Now more than ever, it is important for us to come together and remember - WE ARE ONE BLOOD.
It is time for Christians to stop twisting the truth and making excuses for ourselves! We must learn to endure and do what is difficult. Jesus picked up his cross and laid it all down for us! Now we have the opportunity to do it all for Him.
The Lord gave us His manual - the Book of Instruction that can help us get through this life.
We can do this because we are ONE BLOOD. We must pray for Holy Spirit wisdom. I already know the answer is not found in black and in white, but the answer is found within the heart.
