When I left off last month, I was about to reveal some instances of just how, our ignorance of the ramifications, of the absolute foolishness we are involved in, is causing many of us to suffer. And that suffering is a direct result of the absence of leaders in our community, that have Godly (Spiritual) insight to warn us about our perilous ways.
Hopefully, this will be the last installment of this message, but I can’t say for sure. Only God knows how much more He wants me to address.
Our community (black), has a history of suffering, far more than any other community in this nation. If it is any thing bad, we rank at the very top of the list. If, on the other hand, it is good, we rank at the very bottom of the list.
Let’s look at some evidence.
Fact. Over 94% of our community supports the Democratic party. Far higher than any other community. Not only that, but, while supporters of the Democratic party, from other communities, will switch and support Republicans, if they aren't pleased with the Democrats, blacks, would rather stay home, and not vote at all, than go out and vote for a Republican.
Fact. The main mantra of this party, is its support of abortion, and gay rights.
Fact. God considers both of these foundational pillars of the party, total abominations, especially abortion.
As a result, God sees this type of mindset, the black community is involved in, as a community of people that are so stiffnecked, that they should just be left alone to suffer whatever God determines to send on them.
Why would God take this action, you might ask??
Because, while no political party is perfect, the Republican party, the party that, at least has some sense of what is right, and what is wrong, in God's eyes, because of the spiritual influence of groups like the ‘religious right’ represents a step in the right direction on all moral issues, and blacks, want no part of them.
By the black community, opposing, and refusing to give any acknowledgement to the Republican party, they essentially have put themselves in the position of being what Jesus was talking about when He said, Mark 9:40 For he that is not against us is on our part. What this means is, since the black community has no remorse in their support of a party, that is at war with Him, then He has no remorse in sending His wrath on them.
Why is the black community in this position?? Quite simply put, it is the leaders that they listen to, that are preachers.
Throughout the old testament, and even in the new testament, especially with Jesus, we can see, that for every good individual, preaching the Truth of God’s Word, there are over 100, that will do everything in their power to squash it, and Him.
And that is the exact same thing that your leaders are guilty of.
But look at this warning.
Mat 21:33 Hear another parable: There was a certain householder, which planted a vineyard, and hedged it round about, and digged a winepress in it, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country:
Mat 21:34 And when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits of it.
Mat 21:35 And the husbandmen took his servants, and beat one, and killed another, and stoned another.
Mat 21:36 Again, he sent other servants more than the first: and they did unto them likewise.
Mat 21:37 But last of all he sent unto them his son, saying, They will reverence my son.
Mat 21:38 But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and let us seize on his inheritance.
Mat 21:39 And they caught him, and cast him out of the vineyard, and slew him.
Mat 21:40 When the lord therefore of the vineyard cometh, what will he do unto those husbandmen?
Mat 21:41 They say unto him, He will miserably destroy those wicked men, and will let out his vineyard unto other husbandmen, which shall render him the fruits in their seasons.
We can see the reality of that underlined part, being manifested in the black community today.
Time and again, I hear the wailing, and moaning of blacks, about the state of their condition in this nation, and the only thing they are doing, is proving the truth and reality of God’s word. A truth, and reality that any Spiritually minded person could plainly see.
Some will say that I am mixing religion, and politics. To that I will say ‘You got that right!!’ If you think God doesn't care about who we vote for, then that goes to show just how blind you really are. If God blessed or cursed nations, based on the actions of the kings of those nations, then, what makes you think He will look the other way, when it comes to kings, that unlike those countries in the bible, we, ourselves choose??
In every situation in life, God always provides a ram in the bush.’ This means we always have a choice between good, and evil. Or even when there are 2 evils, one is worse than the other. That means you have to know, which is the lesser of the 2.
The black community, has a consistent record, of not only choosing the worst, but even going so far as to stick with them, no matter what. These are clearly the actions of fools.
When people have no regard for what is right, and wrong, in God’s eyes, even though someone has told them, then they are acting like there is no God. And with that being the case, then, the bible says, Psa 14:1 The fool hath said in his heart, There is no God. They are corrupt, they have done abominable works, there is none that doeth good.
The bible says that these are people, that will be looked on by other nations, as accursed, and as such, will be persecuted, made fun of, and treated like they have some contagious disease. All courtesy of God, because they have rejected Him, and His Counsel.
Remember what Deuteronomy 28:15 - end, and Proverbs 1:22 - 33 in last month's tract said? They give the warning, and the black community is experiencing it, but yet, they refuse to repent, because they don't think they have anything to repent of. And the reason for that is they aren't being told the Truth, by the black preachers they listen to.
They, the black community, are being told that their problems, are the result of something man is doing. And while that may be a small part of it, that is not the whole story.
When God talks about the persecution, the enslavement, the loss of your families through war, accident, or other means, this usually involves human beings, but only in the capacity of God using them, to carry out His Will, and Purpose. However, when it comes to things like diseases, accidents involving no one but the victim, or loss of wealth because of purely bad decision making on our part, or even due to weather, pestilence or other things, man has absolutely no control over that, PERIOD.
Any way you want to look at it, God, ultimately controls these situations, and He will only allow people, or other things to negatively affect us, if, we refuse to listen to, and act on, the Truth.
The bible says, what will happen to those that are disobedient, and it is happening. Yet these preachers are going around telling you that it is the wickedness of other people like whites, Republicans, the rich, Bush, Limbaugh, and the like, and that you need to get government, to pass laws to force them to do what's right.
Well, here is another spiritual fact.
When you engage in something, to fight against what is happening to you, and it is God, that is punishing you, then, what you are actually doing, is fighting, not against man, but God!! And the last time I looked, God, never loses.
So, the black community is suffering all these ills, because black preachers, blinded to the spiritual reality of their situation, are leading their followers in to a battle they can't win. Not only that, but they actually are bringing more of God's wrath on them.
If we look at the city of Detroit, America's first major city, to be controlled by blacks, you will see an example of just how God's wrath is on this city.
Detroit, has gone from a major economic player in the world, the auto industry, and entertainment mecca [Motown] leading the way, to the brunt of jokes all over the world. It has gone from one of the richest cities, to the poorest.
The city is consumed by its own self destruction. We have more crime, incompetence in government, scandal, corruption, unemployment, poverty, and homelessness than any other city in this nation. In some of these instances, we are at 2 times higher than the next city.
And what is our response??
Getting Washington to pass laws, and regulations that we believe will bring prosperity back to the city. It sounds good, but, it is a recipe for disaster, because as I said earlier, we are engaging in a war against God. And that means we are in a battle we can't win.
Cities in this state, are prospering, by following set plans, that are proving to be just what they need to survive the economic climate in this nation. But, when it comes to Detroit, we complain about our problems, but, we refuse to follow the same plans these cities follow, because we think we know better than they do.
That, my friends is ‘pride.’ More specifically, ‘Black pride.’ Too proud to admit when we are wrong. Too proud to admit we have been made fools of. We even go so far as making it appear that God, favors us, over others, because we want to claim since the origin of man, according to the bible, began in Africa, then, we, the black community, are the true children of God, and parents to the human race.
So now, not only are we blaming our problems on others, we now, want to bring God in to it, thus painting an image of Him, that makes Him, less Holy, Righteous, and Sovereign, than He Is. And He is not going to tolerate it.
Once again, it is black preachers that are at the core of this problem.
God is perfectly willing to let us suffer, and destroy ourselves, if that is what we want to do. But, that is not what He wants for us.
He wants us to repent, and turn from our wicked ways.
But, to the spiritually blind, repent, means ‘sin.’ And as we are told, sin, is not the problem. In fact it never enters the conversation. Our problem is racism, the Republicans, Bush, Limbaugh, and the ‘Religious Right’ and mistakes. Sin, is not even considered.
Without addressing ‘sin’, we are all doomed to failure and destruction. You can't be victorious over your situation, unless you have God's blessing. And you aren't going to get it, if you won't listen to what God has to say. And you can't hear what God has to say, unless you have a preacher, a spiritually minded preacher, who is in touch with God. In other words, Rom 10:14-15 How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and how shall they believe in him of whom they have not heard? and how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things!
It’ time to get new leadership, Spiritual leadership.
It is that, or else!!!
