2 Timothy 3:16 All Scripture is inspired by God and profitable
for teaching, for reproof, for correction, for training in
righteousness. To judge and correct sin is necessary, but as all
things should be done in love out of a pure motive. We are not
called to look for faults in our brothers, but to be a means of
restoring them to right standing with God.

Do Not Give the Enemy Ground to Attack
And you were dead in your trespasses and sins, 2 in which you
formerly walked according to the course of this world, according
to the prince of the power of the air, of the spirit that is now
working in the sons of disobedience. You look in the
mirror and that is the outside you that you see. The next layer of
you is the mind, will and emotions, and finally the spirit man. We
know people by their fruit, that is to what level or degree they are
mature in the Lord or even if they know the Lord. We need to be
allowing the Holy Spirit of God in all situations to help us possess
our souls, and therefore our actions outwardly, love, joy, peace,…
Sometimes this is not easy to do in certain situations. Choose the
150 high road. CHOOSE to do things God’s WAY! This is not about
you but representing Jesus before others. This is the true suffering
for Christ, the true growth in God. Realize this, if it is banging on
your door, take the test! Is it God looking for a Godly response in
you?, Are you being refined?, Is your flesh the problem?, Is your
mind, will, or emotions being worked on by the Lord? Is He
showing you something about yourself? Is the flesh of another
coming at you? Will you love them in spite of themselves as Jesus
does us? Or have you given the enemy grounds to come into your
life by a wrong attitude toward another or even yourself or God?
Wrong feelings?  Wrong thoughts? You know it is wrong? Some
where the enemy has sown a bad seed! The TIME is now to deal
with it! Repent and be determined to do good, go the extra mile so
they will see, listen, and learn! Forgive and love! (Matthew 5:48)
For example: The devil wants God’s creation, mankind, in hell.
The Devil hates what God has made done you your life, so he uses
spirits of racism to divide, cause disunity, strife, and contention!
Why? Because the devil knows he is in major trouble if we come
together in unity! (See Unity Prayer) (Hint: Never blame God!)

 

The Spiritual Realm is Real The spiritual realm is a real unseen existence, alive and active. There is a war going on of satan and his demonic spirits (evil) against God, His angels, and praying saints. This war is for the possession of your soul (mind, will, and emotions) and to dominate the unredeemed spirit of all unsaved on earth. There are many lies out there. Let me give you insight as to how these lies work to seduce and draw you away from God and the relationship He desires to have with you and His loving thought out plan for your life in Him.

Some of those lies:
Lie #1 All people will be forgiven and be in Heaven. God will surely forgive me without Jesus in my life.

Lie #2 There is no God or Devil.

Lie #3 There is no Heaven or Hell.

Lie #4 The Bible was just a book written by men.

Lie #5 Religion was thought up by a man or men to control the masses.

Lie #6 Man evolved.

Lie #7 I believe some of the Bible is true and I don’t take it so Literally, I am okay.

Lie #8 I can get to Heaven on my own good behavior or merit.

Lie #9 I am good and I will be good and help others. (This is called “works”.)

Lie #10 I believe in God but I don’t think I need to ask Jesus into my heart, because there are many ways to Him.

Lie #11 I believe there is a God. I believe in God. This “cross” or “Jesus” thing is not for me.

Lie #12 I believe in God, and His Son and what Jesus did. I am good, and that is good enough!

Lie #13 I believe Jesus was just a Prophet sent by God.

Lie #14 How can Jesus’ Blood save anyone? …
12
that’s a bloody Religion. Do you expect me to teach my children that?

Lie #15 I will never be good enough. I’m working on it.

Lie #16 God is dead

Lie #17 I am not important enough to God
… it’s God’s fault, what kind of God would…, and the excuses & lies go on!
The devil gives people excuses and reasons to believe God does not exist or that He is far off. The devil is also trying to persuade people into thinking they don’t need God or that He is a weak God. The devil does not want you to know that God is loving, kind, merciful, & forgiving, He has a good plan for your life; a relationship with Him moment by moment, our One True, and LIVING God, our Heavenly Father!
The devil, originally named Lucifer, is a created being, a fallen Cherub (angel), who became twisted on the inside. “How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning? How art thou cut down to the ground, which weakened (by deception) the nations”? (Isaiah 14:12) The only power the devil has is the power you give him over yourself by believing his lies. These lies are like a trap, or a snare that take people captive. The devil, the enemy of God, and his evil followers on this planet are always trying to deceive and draw us away from our Heavenly Father, from a relationship with God the True Heavenly Father and His plan for our lives. People don’t even realize when they are deceived or ensnared, that is how slick (devious) the devil is. The most dangerous thing I see in people that allows this deception to occur is pride. Pride is blindness to God, His Way, and the reality that we need Him! Pride tells us that we can do things without God’s help or intervention. That is dangerous (deadly). Through pride we become blinded, set in our minds and hearts to go another way (stiff necked), with a bad attitude (hard-hearted) and rebellious (against or opposing God). When blinded like that we can believe a lie or think we are okay even when we are not. God is the turning point, the turning around place is in Him! We need God’s help! We need God!

When You Do Not Understand…

if u don't understand it just say it , it ok..

if u don’t understand it just say it , it ok..

Maybe you do not understand… Sometimes a lack of knowing or a lack of understanding could cause you to interpret the meaning of anything the wrong way. Some people just don’t understand and some cannot comprehend the meanings of that which is being said. When things are very hard to understand it may be due to the wording, how the words are spoken or written.

Example: if you speak english only and someone is trying to tell you something in French, you will look at them strangely and have a puzzled look on your face.  You totally don’t understand anything being said, so u do nothing because you are at a loss for what is being said. Later u may ask yourself what were they telling me? You might feel bad because you did not understand, and rationalize it by saying oh well I do not speak french.

Same as for the Word of God, u just don’t understand it, it makes no sense to you, so u tend to ignore that which makes u feel less smart. When u read something that u do not understand, u tend to put the book down quickly. it has no interest to u. You cannot get interested in the book.  So most often if u cannot get moved or our interest is not sparked, we often loose interest in that particular book.

So as it is for some, when it comes to reading the Bible. There is no connection with what is being said in the Bible so it does not spark your interest at all. So when u do not understand something what do u do? Do you put it down and walk away. Do you feel like since you cannot understand it then, this book is not for you? Do you lose total interest in the book? Do you feel like this book is not the type of book you would like to read? What do u feel about a book u have no understanding of or have not taken an interest in? Do you walk away from it never to pick it up again? That can be very easy to do and never pick it up again. Why? Because u feel u have nothing in common with anything written in the book at all.

Guess what? That is not true at all. It’s just the opposite. You have so much in common with the book that u can’t even imagine. The book, The Bible was written just for u. Its your personal friend and it has so much in it concerning your life. The Bible is your personal book  of answers. It answers all of your questions, and answers questions that you often wonder about. The Holy Bible is your friend. There is a saying, “The Bible will keep you away from Sin, or Sin will keep you away from the Bible”.

How does the body mind and soul function spiritually? We can see with the eye how the body functions carnal. Do we know the difference, we should it is very easy to tell the difference between the two. First what is spiritual?

Spiritual  relating to, or affecting the human spirit or soul as opposed to material or physical things

Spiritual is something related to or concerned with religion, the spirit or the soul.

Spirituality – An awareness of the metaphysical, the religious, or the sublime. In practice, spirituality includes participation in organized religion, contemplation, meditation, prayer, reflection, and activities fostering self-growth and connections with others and with nature.                                                                                                        http://medical-dictionary.thefreedictionary.com/spiritual

It can be a very broad subject, because so many people have described spiritual as having and being so many things.

According to Watchman Nee, Spiritual is having the nature of God dwell within you. Its partaking of  or having a spiritual life:

Often we as humans live as if we are our own creator, maker or inventor. We are not. Concerning a person which has never been in tune to God, the facts does not matter. But as it concerns a person that is fully aware of God and all of His doings and attributes, will  know the importance of the Spiritual life. If there is  life, living, breathing then you do have a spirit. But if you are dead, non-living, non-breathing  then there is no spirit there dwelling within you. No human is complete without a spirit. Some confuse the soul as being the spirit but it is not. They are separate parts of us. We have a body, a soul, and a spirit. Each one has its own function!

If the spirit is not seeking God or not searching to have a connection with God then u will be left out. You have to seek to understand God, it will not come to u naturally, it takes work to develop an understanding of Gods Word. It takes reading it, meditating on it, it takes prayer and it take dedication. But most of us will not invest the time to get the understanding it take to master Gods Words.

I  had these persons to tell me they do not believe in Gods Word because it was written by white men and they changed the words. So I asked him, well who words do u believe in? He said not the Bible, because the slave owners used the Bible to control the slaves. So I told him we are not responsible for believing wrong things. We are also not responsible if people use the Bible for the wrong reasons. We are also not responsible for being told lies. But what we are responsible for is digging out the truths in God’s Words. When we listen to people tell us thing in the Bible and we do not go to God and ask for understanding, and Biblical knowledge then we are responsible. We are responsible for not seeking the truth. Truth is only truth if we believe it, so do not let anybody tell you anything and then you do not go to God and ask for understanding. There are millions of lies being passed out as truths. The truth of any matter is never easy, the truth is the hardest thing to find. Lies are just lying around everywhere. But you have to dig and search for the truths. The Bible is the ultimate truth. So don’t let anybody tell you anything, because anything is not the truth most of the time.

Sekk the truth, God will give it to u

he lied from the beginning, and is still lying today.

Example: You might sit at home and somebody told u the sky was falling, and u sit there and say ok, you believe them. If u never get up out of your chair to look for yourself, then you are just too lazy to look for yourself, then you need to be lied to.

Example: Say for instance u are told all your life God is white.  As a child you believe that, because everywhere you look you see pictures of a white Jesus. So u never question that. But as you get older and began to search the Bible you be given an understanding that God is not a white man. Look at the history of the people in the Biblical times. Jesus was a carpenter so He worked, he walked everywhere He had to go, I’m sure the sun was out and it was hot. I have never seen anybody that worked in the sun and walked everywhere in the sun being or having white skin. They will develop very dark skin and it never lightens up again.

OK  go to scripture:

John’s Vision on Patmos Revelation1: 1:13-18
13and in the middle of the lampstands I saw one like a son of man, clothed in a robe reaching to the feet, and girded across His chest with a golden sash. 14 His head and hair were white like wool, as white as snow, and His eyes like a flame of fire; 15 His feet were like fine brass, as if refined in a furnace, and His voice as the sound of many waters; 16 He had in His right hand seven stars, out of His mouth went a sharp two-edged sword, and His countenance was like the sun shining in its strength. 17 And when I saw Him, I fell at His feet as dead. But He laid His right hand on me, saying to me, “Do not be afraid; I am the First and the Last. 18 I am He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore. Amen. And I have the keys of Hades and of Death.

Daniel’s Vision of the Ancient of Days
9“I kept looking Until thrones were set up, And the Ancient of Days took His seat; His vesture was like white snow And the hair of His head like pure wool. His throne was ablaze with flames, Its wheels were a burning fire. 10“A river of fire was flowing And coming out from before Him; Thousands upon thousands were attending Him, And myriads upon myriads were standing before Him; The court sat, And the books were opened.…

Daniel’s Vision of a Mighty Man
5I lifted my eyes and looked, and behold, there was a certain man dressed in linen, whose waist was girded with a belt of pure gold of Uphaz. 6His body also was like beryl, his face had the appearance of lightning, his eyes were like flaming torches, his arms and feet like the gleam of polished bronze, and the sound of his words like the sound of a tumult. 7Now I, Daniel, alone saw the vision, while the men who were with me did not see the vision; nevertheless, a great dread fell on them, and they ran away to hide themselves.…

Ezekiel 40:3
He took me there, and I saw a man whose appearance was like bronze; he was standing in the gateway with a linen cord and a measuring rod in his hand.

Liars always take out bits and pieces that serve their purposes, but it takes hard work to uncover the truths. Don’t let the devil sell you a lie. That is why the Bible says :

God’s Charges against Israel / Each of us   Hosea 5-7
5So you will stumble by day, And the prophet also will stumble with you by night; And I will destroy your mother. 6My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being My priest. Since you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children. 7The more they multiplied, the more they sinned against Me; I will change their glory into shame.…

Destroyed means you are taken out, you die, reduced to nothing…..

to reduce (an object) to useless fragments, a useless form, or remains, as by rending, burning, or dissolving; injure beyond repair or renewal; demolish; ruin; annihilate.

2.

to put an end to; extinguish.

3.

to kill; slay.

4.

to render ineffective or useless; nullify; neutralize; invalidate.

5.

to defeat completely

Example: You are in a class of some sort, and you don’t quite understand the information being presented, DON’T SIT THERE!!! RAISE YOUR HAND AND ASK A MILLION QUESTIONS UNTIL YOU GET IT!!!!! Don’t worry about who looks at you crazy, or who is taking deep breaths or the ones who are looking at you out the sides of their necks, forget them. ASK, ASK AND ASK!!!

Same way with God, he wants you to ASK, ASK, AND ASK UNTIL U UNDERSTAND HIM AND HIS WORD!!

Now days there is NO REASON FOR YOU NOT TO UNDERSTAND ANYTHING, especially the BIBLE. Once you began to understand the more your spirit will become tuned to God the Holy Spirit. We all have a spirit, and that spirit craves to be intimate with the Holy Spirit of God. When u began to seek after God and began to understand Him, your way of life changes. It seeks to please God, and to live more by His Word.

he is focused on you

you are his main focus

So it is best to seek for yourself, that has been a major problem for us, we let others instill their opinions upon us. And often opinions are the results of what one is thinking. Not what is actual being said, or what is being demonstrated. So in order for us not to fall into and believing someone else opinions, lets take a whole look for ourselves. Read it yourself. Understand it for yourself, and know it for yourself. If you do your research then nobody can lie to you when it concerns the Biblical Truths.

Ok so you say what do I mean?

Examples: Take a look the election candidates, some of us just vote for someone because our friend will be voting for that person. Or the Pastor told you to vote for them, or u heard it on the radio, or someone at your job will be voting for a certain person  or you get in a group to decide to vote for a person, but you really need to read upon the person to get an idea of what they think, or how they feel about issues that concern you. But its more easy for someone to tell you who to vote for than to do your own research. Ok u vote for(example) Hillary because Shelia Lee told you to. But, what if she got paid to tell you to vote for Hillary. So you vote for Hillary, but did u dig and see what she is about, or did u listen to someone else tell you who to vote for?

I tell you this, that is why the country is in the situation it is in today, we didn’t read the Bible, and we did not research the person running for these public offices. We need knowledge, understanding and we need God to make godly decisions. I used to be like that but after trials in my life I’ve learned that everybody I would vote for do not have our best interest at heart, if they did we would not have so many, many black men, black husbands, black sons, black daughters, black mothers or black people in jails.

But after all is said and done, The best wisdom to have is the Wisdom from Gods Words.

Slave or Not?

young or old you work in the cotton field

Juneteenth is the oldest known celebration commemorating the ending of slavery in the United States. Dating back to 1865, it was on June 19th that the Union soldiers, led by Major General Gordon Granger, landed at Galveston, Texas with news that the war had ended and that the enslaved were now free. Note that this was two and a half years after President Lincoln’s Emancipation Proclamation – which had become official January 1, 1863. The Emancipation Proclamation had little impact on the Texans due to the minimal number of Union troops to enforce the new Executive Order. However, with the surrender of General Lee in April of 1865, and the arrival of General Granger’s regiment, the forces were finally strong enough to influence and overcome the resistance.

Later attempts to explain this two and a half-year delay in the receipt of this important news have yielded several versions that have been handed down through the years. Often told is the story of a messenger who was murdered on his way to Texas with the news of freedom. Another, is that the news was deliberately withheld by the enslavers to keep up the labor force on the plantations. And still another, is that federal troops actually waited for the slave owners to reap the benefits of one last cotton harvest before going to Texas to enforce the Emancipation Proclamation. All of which, or neither of these version could be true.  For whatever the reasons, conditions in Texas, to keep things as they were, well beyond what was statutory.

General Order Number 3

One of General Granger’s first orders of business was to read to the people of Texas, General Order Number 3 which began most definitely with:

“The people of Texas are informed that in accordance with a Proclamation from the Executive of the United States, all slaves are free. This involves an absolute equality of rights and rights of property between former masters and slaves, and the connection heretofore existing between them becomes that between employer and free laborer.”

Freedon Celebration

Freedom Celebration

The reactions to this profound news ranged from pure shock to immediate jubilation. While many lingered to learn of this new employer to employee relationship, many left before these offers were completely off the lips of their former ‘masters’ – attesting to the varying conditions on the plantations and the realization of freedom. Even with nowhere to go, many felt that leaving the plantation would be their first grasp of freedom. North was a logical destination and for many it represented true freedom, while the desire to reach family members in neighboring states drove the some into Louisiana, Arkansas and Oklahoma. Settling into these new areas as free men and women brought on new realities and the challenges of establishing an heretofore non-existent status for black people in America. Recounting the memories of that great day in June of 1865 and its festivities would serve as motivation as well as a release from the growing pressures met in their new territory. The celebration of June 19th was coined “Juneteenth” and grew with more participation from descendants. The Juneteenth celebration was a time for reassuring each other, for praying and for gathering remaining family members. Juneteenth continued to be highly revered in Texas decades later, with many former slaves and descendants making an annual pilgrimage back to Galveston on this date.

The freedom message reached different parts of African-American Slaves on various dates between 1863-1864

January 1st:. New York, Boston, MA, Alabama, Georgia, North Carolina, Virginia, Tennessee.
February 1st: Philadelphia PA.
May 8th: Eastern Mississippi.

America and Juneteenth

 

The Thirteenth Amendment to the United States Constitution abolished slavery and involuntary servitude, except as punishment for a crime. It was passed by the Senate on April 8, 1864, by the House on January 31, 1865, and adopted on December 6, 1865. On December 18, 1865, Secretary of State William H. Seward proclaimed its adoption. It was the first of the three Reconstruction Amendments adopted following the American Civil War.

So now knowing that, are you slave or free? I would say I am free, but is that really the truth? You would say you are free, but is that really true?

According to us, yes it’s true. So freedom it is. Does that make it so because we say so. Does that mean we are because laws and constitutions say we are? Does that make it so? If your parent tells you to do something,  do you have to do it? If you don’t what happens? If the Mayor of a city tells you to do something and you don’t, what happens? When the Governor tells you to do something and you don’t, what happens? If the police tells you to do something and you don’t what happens? If your doctor tells you to do something and you don’t, what happens? Are you getting the point? So are we really free?   We are free physically, but are we free mentally? Many of us say, yes. Some of us are. But the majority of us are not. Some of us remember things, some of us do things, and some of us live through things. Some of the things we go through causes us to wonder are we really free?  Being free to do as you please can cause some of us to lose our freedom!  Is our minds really free? No we worry about all sorts of things.  We worry about tomorrow, when we shouldn’t. W e worry about things that we fear when we shouldn’t. We worry about what the day or night may bring, when we shouldn’t. So are we free?

The US slaves were set free, but worries about the unknown, caused doubt.  When given a chance to enjoy real freedom  most were hesitant. How would you react? Or would you choose to stay in the same old situation, because of fear of the unknown. Some have never experienced slavery, but most have; rather they know it or not!  It starts in the mind. Slavery has to be in  the mind of the person.  You can be a slave and be free, or you can be free and still be a slave!

Speaking of Slavery!

Every major ancient civilization depended heavily on the service of slaves, conquered people set to a variety of tasks by their masters.  The scripture states that the Hebrews became slaves of the Egyptians,  under whom they carried out forced labor ‘in mortar, in brick, and all manner of services in the field’. Exodus 1:8-14

During the time of Apostle  Paul the in the Roman empire over half the population or more may have been slaves.  Depending  on the interest of the ruling masters. Joseph was sold as a slave to the Egyptian Potiphar.

Then Daniel and other young Hebrew males were taken into captivity to Babylon., where they were trained for high levels of government services.                                                                                                Daniel 1:1-7, 18-21

The majority of slaves in those days were often used as property to be bought and sold as needed. Males were often assigned construction  or in mines to dig and worked so until exhausted to death. The women were maid servant, were usually sold to well to do men for service to their wives or daughters . But most were used for sexual pleasures for men.

But not all slavery was between nations, according to the Old Testaments the Israelites had both Jewish and Gentile slaves. The Jews who were too poor to pay their debts or who were convicted of theft sometimes sold themselves into slavery. In  contrast to other cultures of the day the Jewish law protected slaves and even granted them certain rights.                                                                                                          Exodus 21:2-11, Leviticus.25:39-55, Deuteronomy.21:10-14

If you would like to know more , it all located in the Bible.

However, I must say, when it comes to slavery, it can be a terrible thing for anyone. Being a slave is no fun! Being used against your will is terrible for the one being used. I know in the US slavery was a welcomed entity, however some greatly opposed the Institution of Slavery. If I may, I would like everyone reading this article to take a moment; stop reading and close your eyes and think back. Now let your mind wonder what would have been if….. or  place yourself in the moment, and time. Let yourself become a slave. Go back to the plantation and  stand before your master and go inside the mind and body of a slave. You for a moment become the slave. Look upon your master’s face and see his frowns, and the yelling and the whip sliding across your back. Stop and look at your children being snatched away from you, to be sold right before your eyes. Look at your wife being sold, or your husband being sold. You hear your daughter screaming from the barn, while she is being raped by  the massa or the massa’s son. ALL YOU CAN DO IS STAND THERE AND ENDURE THE PAIN. You are waken up every day around 4:00 am to go into the fields to pick and package cotton. Your fingers hurt, your back hurt, your legs hurt and your stomach hurts. No where to run, nowhere to hide. You are A SLAVE, and you ain’t nothin but a black nigger, who deserves to be treated like a nothing and a nobody. You hear all the names you are being called, you hear about all the beatings they enjoy giving, you hear about all the lynchings. But what can you do! What can you do!  The only thing you can do is PRAY!  You have no identity anymore, you have no home anymore, you have your heritage stolen, you have you history stolen, you are nothing and nobody but a slave. You work, work, work and work for them but where is your wealth! It’s been stolen too. Now you can come back. Now why do you hate  me? Can you feel the hurt and the pain. That’s the story of a slave!

Steal Away, Steal Away to Jesus

We’ll stand the storm

        “Go down Moses Way down in Egypt land. Tell  ole Pharoah, Let my people go”

But God is forgiving and so are we!

God has forgiven!

Now as for slaves, I can be a slave, you can be a slave, we all can be slaves, to the unforseen!  We could all be slaves behind money, or a slave to drugs, strong drinks, sex, racism, a slave to hatred, a slave to the anti-christ spirit. We could be a slave to a lawlessness rebellious nature. Then again we can be a slave to deceiving others, or a slave to lying to others, or a slave of being attracted to the same-sex person, or a slave to bad addictions, a slave to corruption, or maybe a slave to sin. Maybe you can have a murdering spirit, anger, or suicidal, or a slave to divination, of fear of thing and other people.There are so, so many things you can be a slave to. So that is why I said earlier;  Are we  really free. I know some of us are slave free. We have no slave in us or over us. But for some of us we are a slave to something. The things that we are a slave to, can be to the death of us. Say for instance you would like to get rid of your slave, but you can’t, because it’s so hard to depart yourself from your slave, when you think about all the profit you will lose.

Back to slavery: Once the slaves were declared free it was so hard for some to walk away. Addictions can be as addictive as slavery. Both were and is so hard to let go, to get rid of. If you are addicted too any thing you can stop being addicted over night you usually have to go and get some help. So being a slave to something or someone is not healthy.

Remove the chain of prisoners, who are chained unjustly. Free those who are abused!

These are all some type of addiction, so if addicted then “You Are A Slave”.

1. Being a slave is hurtful.

2. It destroys you and others.

3. Being a slave is losing something dear to you.

4. Being a slave is TO BE  taken away from the things you love.

5. Being a slave is having no say so about anything.

6. Being a slave, you have to do as your master tell you.

7. Being a slave is a killer.

8. Being a slave is having your real identity taken away from you!

9.  Being a slave means you have no life, but the life your master has chosen for you.

10. Being a slave takes away your pride., self – identity and  originality of the person you once were!

I’m sure you know what I mean. When you become a slave you lose all of self you belong to what ever or whom has the control or power over you. So can you imagine how slaves in US history must have felt. You were somebody in your homeland,  then you came here as a slave and lost everything, your identity, your namesake, your family, our health, your culture, you get the idea.

“And ye shall hallow the fiftieth year, and proclaim liberty throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof: it shall be a jubilee unto you and ye shall return every man unto his possessions, and ye shall return every man unto his family.” Leviticus 25:10 KJV

Many of our ancestors were brought here more than  one hundred years ago: many of our Fathers, many of ourselves have fought and bled for the independence of our country. Do not expose us to sale. Let not the spirit of the father behold the son robbed of that liberty which he died to establish, but let the motto of our legislature be: The law knows no distinction”. James Forten (1766-1842)

I know some of you are asking today, ‘How long will it take?” I come to say to you this afternoon however difficult the moment, however frustrating the hour, it will not be long, because truth pressed to earth will rise again. How long? Not long, because no lie can live forever. How long? Not long because you reap what you sow. How long? Not long, because the arm of the moral universe is long, but it hands toward justice.” Martin Luther King Jr. (1929-1968)

Freedom is a hard-fought thing and millions are in chains, but they strain towards the new day drawing near. Paul Roberson (1898-19760)

Your petitioner therefore prays your Honorable Court to grant him leave to sue as a poor person, in order to establish his right to freedom. Dred Scott (1795-1858)

 

BUT !  THERE WAS AND IS ONE AND ONLY ONE-WAY OUT!  HOPE IN JESUS CHRIST. Some chose to die at their own hand than to suffer at the hands of their slave owners. BUT THE HERO’S WAY OUT WAS TO ACCEPT JESUS CHRIST INTO YOUR LIKE AND BELIEVE, HE WOULD COME THROUGH FOR YOU! SO ITS TIME NOW TO GIVE IT TO JESUS CHRIST!

In every human  Breast, God has implanted a Principle, which we call Love and Freedom; it is impatient of Oppression, and pants for Deliverance; and by the Leave of our Modern Egyptians I will assert, that the same Principle lives within us.                                                          Phillis Wheatley (1753-1784)

When the day comes and you have been set free – YOU REJOICE! Because you have been set free!

Father, Oh, Lord Our God and Saviour Jesus Christ, we call upon you Father to heal the land and Father please set your captives free. Lord on High we need you to day, Lord we Thank You today. God you are our Father and we need you in our live so that we can live for you. Lord we need you in our live to see the world and the people in it through Your eyes. Lord you are Our Keeper, Our Deliverer, Our Protector, and Our Master. Lord Our Father, help us humble ourselves so that we may be able to love others as you love us. Lord Jesus please God, keep us in Your hands so that we may not destroy each other. Lord kill the hatred in each of us. Lord help the world heal. Lord and I pray for the heads of states and the heads of the nation. Lord please clean their hearts, help them understand that we were created to serve you in the Highest.  Lord let them see that every decision affects the masses. So Lord help them turn from their wicked ways and turn to You once again. In Jesus ‘ Name I Pray Amen, Amen, and Amen!!! Father heal the Land!
