I have said it before that I would love to see the Lord darken the skies then hear thunder and see lightning bolts come down with the end result being all black and white people being striped like zebras. I feel this would end a massive part of the whining and complaining that takes place in this country. I would love to see the white racist and the black racist get the color slapped on them that they cannot stand! People can be so stupid and ignorant!
I am sure the title of this caught some people’s attention! The title comes from a statement made by Morgan Freeman while being interviewed by 60 minutes in 2005. Freeman made the statement and I could not agree more. Big problems would come if I did not have his statement to back me. I would be labeled a racist and so many would be all flared up. It’s kind of like the situation where it is ok for blacks to kill blacks but let a white person kill a black then it makes headlines and people are ready to riot! So ignorant!
For those that know me they know that I can’t stand talking about skin color and race. To me there are only two groups of people….children of God and children of the devil! PERIOD! There are so many people professing to be Christians who love their skin color more than they love Jesus! I have never been with a friend whose skin color was darker than mine where we hung around talking about our skin. How ridiculous that would be! If a person is hung up concerning their skin color they need to get saved! No truly born again person will get caught up in racial events. Again I’ll say if you are in a love affair with your skin then get saved and the Lord will deliver you from that mess! Freeman also said “if you want to end racism, quit talking about it”. I strongly feel that if people would do this the chains of bondage would drop off and set many people truly free!
Let us look at what the Bible says about showing favoritism and partiality……
Romans 2:11 For God shows no partiality [undue favor or unfairness; with Him one man is not different from another].
1Peter 1:17 And if you call upon Him as [your] Father Who judges each one impartially according to what he does,
Colossians 3:25 And [with God] there is no partiality [no matter what a person's position may be, whether he is the slave or the master].
Galatians 2:6 Moreover, [no new requirements were made] by those who were reputed to be something--though what was their individual position and whether they really were of importance or not makes no difference to me; God is not impressed with the positions that men hold and He is not partial and recognizes no external distinctions--those [I say] who were of repute imposed no new requirements upon me [had nothing to add to my Gospel, and from them I received no new suggestions].
Acts 10:34 Peter opened his mouth and said: Most certainly and thoroughly I now perceive and understand that God shows no partiality and is no respecter of persons,
Luke 20:21 They asked Him, Teacher, we know that You speak and teach what is right, and that You show no partiality to anyone but teach the way of God honestly and in truth.
Matthew 22:16 You profess to be and that You teach the way of God truthfully, regardless of consequences and being afraid of no man; for You are impartial and do not regard either the person or the position of anyone.
Proverbs 24:23 These also are sayings of the wise: To discriminate and show partiality, having respect of persons in judging, is not good.
Job 34:19 [God] is not partial to princes, nor does He regard the rich more than the poor, for they all are the work of His hands.
Deuteronomy 10:17 For the Lord your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great, the mighty, the terrible God, Who is not partial and takes no bribe.
I do not think it would take a rocket scientist to figure out who is behind all the division making, favoritism, partiality and discrimination. It is quite clear by all the above scriptures that it is against the Word of God! Yes people, it is that old lame devil again coming to steal, kill and destroy! The sad part is he has so many people still falling for his lame tricks! God did not make BLACK HISTORY MONTH! God would not make WHITE HISTORY MONTH! This is man made with the strong encouragement of the devil! This is the same pitiful devil that is behind hate and division groups like the KKK and NAACP. The same rotten devil that promotes GAY RIGHTS and any other kind of SIN!
The Bible clearly states in 2Corinthians 5:17 that when a person is born again they become a NEW CREATION and that OLD THINGS ARE GONE and ALL THINGS BECOME NEW! If we are truly saved our skin color should not have anything AT ALL to do with our lives! I could not care any less about what color my skin is. What a waste of time to even think of it! I see people who profess to be of Christ posting everything they can find about injustices to people with the same skin color as theirs. This is while people are dying and going to hell by the masses every day! If we are TRUE FOLLOWERS OF JESUS CHRIST all of our heritage, history and future should be 100% in HIM! We should have no part in the RACIAL NONSENSE of this world! This goes for BET (Black Entertainment Television), BLACK AWARD SHOWS and any other acts of division by the devil. If it was WET (White Entertainment Television) that would be ignorant too!
If you are a Facebook friend and you love your skin color more than you love JESUS please kindly hit the unfriend button for me. I will not be dealing with hypocrites that profess to be Christians but are really followers of the devil through the loving of their flesh! I do not care what color you are! In over 16 years of ministry I have ministered to thousands and thousands of people with skin color that is darker than mine. I have seen and continue to see how racial division has destroyed the lives of the masses. I have witnessed many kids being trained up to dislike the police. I have seen babies in diapers run crying as their ignorant parent tells them that the police are going to get them. I will continue to battle the GENERATIONAL CURSES that have bound so many people with skin color darker than mine so that prayerfully they can be set free. People, get rid of your prejudices now or stand before God on judgment day and be condemned to HELL for going against HIM! Wake up before it is too late!
