God’s intrinsic design of your makeup & origin were not a mistake. He created all men equal!
All God’s creation are precious and worthy to Him, should we therefore not embrace our God given worth regardless of our race, colour and nationality?
For some it takes time, God is patient and is saying the time is now to begin… do not hate yourself, skin colour, race or nation of origin because of how society or people have defined you or what they have said to hurt or mock you. If you do you grieve God who created you. It is as if you are saying He made a mistake or did not create you well. Who are you and I to think or say such things? Even if it is a learnt attitude (to self reject because of experiences), it is not an excuse. It is time to acknowledge such sins and repent. Embrace who you are within, your looks, your skin colour and your race and just carry on living expectant for God’s predestined purposes for you to be fulfilled as you surrender your life into His hands.
Even as a sinner God says He loves you with an unconditional love, He just wants you to repent and live in obedience so that you can enjoy abundant life as His child! Your race, skin colour, nation of origin are the “specifications” He chose for you and the fact that they are different in relation to someone else’s does not make you less of a human being or inferior to anyone for God did not rank these “specifications” according to their worth. Why not? because they are all of equal worth to Him. His intrinsic design for each individual and each collective race are equally beautiful in His eyes.
You have free will, but His hope is that you would agree with Him.
Poem: The Me I Know
The me I know is called black
that’s okay for it’s but a word,
a description of the colour
that’s my skin.
The me I know is God’s
that’s okay for it is the me reborn,
a state of being that’s in the
here and now and for His
purpose, I so define.
The me I know, knows her worth,
that’s okay for it’s a mindset shift,
a knowing of true self,
enabled by whose I am,
The me I know who is His,
has escaped, that’s okay, for
it is time for release from
ancient potholes marked
“unworthy” to embrace the
liberation of the Saviour of
Soaring with healed wings
away from the snare of the
fowler and refusing a status
defined with distaste by
my external colour.
The me I know lives in the
reality of her Saviour’s
finished work among remnant
saints a family of nations and
tribes of a multicoloured hue,
that’s okay for we are one,
the human race.

(PROPHETIC WORD POEM OF INSPIRATION TO THE CHRISTIAN )
The mantel of prayer
is a gift to you, disciple of Christ,
not to a specific priest so accept it
as a sword to wield in the battle field.
Let the flames of prayer be released
from within to set alight Satan’s plans
and to ignite the Word of truth in God’s sons.
Look to see and hear the LORD.
Sound the alarm at the enemy’s advance
upon man and with the armies of God
shoot the arrow at the hordes of hell as
a protector and defender of man.
As an impenetrable wall,
the LORD entreats that your prayer rain is released to fall
as fire and brimstone for the retreat of the armies of hell,
for He says
“The thief only comes to steal, kill, and destroy.
I came that they may have life, and may have it abundantly.”(1)
Forever seated in heavenly places
and in oneness with Spirit and Royal High Priest,
be a bridge for the crossing over into God’s turf,
a mother to carry the vision unto birth and
a midwife, for the bringing forth of God’s plans.
stand in unity on the Rock of Salvation,
your Foundation Stone who is Christ,
the Chief Cornerstone. ©2016 Deborah E. Nyamekye
Quote (1) John 10:10WEB
Note: The bible is full of phrases about God’s promises to God’s children. Believers in Christ are declared overcomers from every power of evil against our lives and guaranteed restoration and healing from afflictions. However we must also remember that we have a calling to be God’s vessels or witnesses through Christ Jesus.
Manifestation of promises and blessings of God are conditional to our obedience which is demonstrated through our yieldedness to God in all areas of our lives. Prayer is communicating with God and when we pray it means we are saying “LORD, I accept you as controller of my life and therefore present to you every area of my life as well as my loved ones and the world at large. What concerns you concerns me and therefore I present every issue before you trusting you will outwork it for your good and to the glory of your name” You must also realise that God wants you to be part of the solution to some of your prayer requests as He plans to use believers in Christ for the fulfilment of His plans on earth.

Whose opinion really matters ? God’s or those of other people? Sadly not everyone treats others with the respect every human being merits. Some will choose to respect or treat others nicely,kindly or respectfully only based on what appeals to them in terms of the person’s economic/social status, culture, religion, nationality or race. This is the fallen ungodly nature still raging within. Let us examine our hearts and if we have this tendency to repent and ask God for forgiveness and cleansing. It is not too late to start afresh and change our ways.
We must always remember that who we are or our worth is not based on how people, society or the “status quo” defines us, but rather on who God Almighty defines us according to His Word. Can I get an Amen?!
Poem: This prophetic poem is intended to remind us, give us some uplifting and inspiration as we interact with one another:
The Only Opinion that Matters
If people complain “my you look so plain” or don’t like you ’cause of your hair and barely there or no make up flair
or whatever the superficial reason,
ask yourself “Whose opinion of me shall I put on the shelf,
the Most High’s or those who elevate self and denigrate other people’s worth?”
The Word of God never on the shelf
but in your heart is rich with God’s opinion to impart.
Christ did not entrust himself to man ’cause he knew what was in their hearts. Entrust yourself to God who declares all men equal,
as a creature in His image your unique outer and inner self is great to behold!
If saved by Christ, washed in his blood then brother, sister you are the righteousness of God and His workmanship in Christ Jesus, to do the works of God.
A clay jar you are with treasure within revealing that the excellency of power is of God and not of men.
Take heed to pay no attention to opinions that lead to destruction.
When some shun and reject you if they find your exterior wrapping unappealing,
it is true to say “a chance they have missed to be blessed by the treasure therein.”
Their blinded eyes deceiving them that they can see,
they live life in realms of superficiality rejecting the “skin deep” reality and end up drowning in a sea of frivolity.
God chose David to be Israel’s King not for his appearance but ’cause he was a man after God’s own heart.
Accept only the opinion of God who said “People judge by outward appearance, but the LORD looks at the heart (1)”,
and remember to “Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life (2)”.

-Awake & overcome the effects of this weapon of mass destruction utilised to sustain hatred and division among God’s creation.
Satan has cleverly made RACISM a taboo topic! ‘Cause he knows it is one of his greatest weapons to sustain his reign in the hearts of men and therefore in their interpersonal relationships.
Prevent people from talking about it and holding racists to account even in the church, then it stays a taboo, a hidden “we live in denial and pretence” mode, even (and I could go as far as saying especially) among Christians. This is one person (me) who does not conform to diabolical restraints and status quo of the demonic kind and boldly exposes Satan’s lies and schemes as God calls me to.
Hiddenness makes you Satan’s well caught & bound bait, as I learnt from experience – no more – God reveals to redeem! Nip that thing in the bud folks!
I.Poem: The Racist
II.What is racism ? The call to self-examine, pray & repent.
I. Poem: The Racist
Animals welcome their own kind in the fold. No exclusion nor disrespecting one or another ’cause of different skin colour, whether black, white or brown.
Not some human beings who stand on platforms, some in secret places, even masked as cowards on their mission to wound, kill and divide.
Few things are worst than the revolting stench out of the sewage funnel that’s the mouth of the oppressor, self proclaimed racist esquire.
Spewing hate, they provoke others to hate and unite forming a deadly chain used as a hangman’s noose while chanting “we are the superior race” or “we hate that race back cause they hated us first!”
What joy is found in debasing a fellow man? name calling and abusing him, even taking his life solely ’cause of the colour of his skin ?
Where is the God kind of love in the heart of such a one, self defined with pride as a racist? it has fled far away from cohorts of hate, their hearts in this state, a filthy play pen for legions of demons. O what a wretched fate!
A debased soul in the image of the anti-Christ is that of the racist, ravished by rage as maggots do rotten flesh, at the sight of others different to behold.
Here is the truth, I’ll say not once but twice, the end of the racist is eternal death, in a place of ceaseless torment even after death.
Indeed a point of no return is reserved for disrespecting men, those who mock and hate fellow humans at every turn!

II. What is racism? The call to self-examine, pray & repent
Let truth be told: Racism is a sin that not only defiles, but also permanently (unless repented of)
infirms the racist’s soul as do bitterness, unforgiveness, jealousy.
How? What is “poured out” from the Racist’s heart and lips and activated (foul language and actions) towards others is the same that infirms and defiles them.
Have racist tendencies? God forgives!
Be redeemed today by accepting Jesus Christ as LORD and Saviour by confessing your sins including that of racism and asking for forgiveness.
If you are a Christian confess your sin of racism for God is faithful to cleanse you from all unrighteousness and help you to overcome this diabolical behaviour, by first causing you to know or identify the root or how it became a normal and sinful attitude contrary to God’s word. It is good to know the root so that living a life of freedom if these “root” elements want to take root again or germinate you have awareness.
Also the essence of being a Christian is loving God and others (two greatest commandments). I don’t see anywhere in scripture that identifies precisely what race or nationality we should love or GIVE PRIORITY to loving over and above others.
A racist heart or a unified racist people will get nothing from God! Want revival? Well…
Many nations are escalating into heights of wickedness and lovelessness, racism (a form of lovelessness) or racial prejudice as never before and many Christians are praying “LORD heal our land” and all manners of praying especially for revival and needs. There is nothing wrong with that… But if only people would remember that God answers prayers based on conditions he expects us to fulfil then we would spend us much time (even more) putting our house in order or living to obey these conditions or commands, as we do praying for them! Then God will “cleans us from all unrighteousness” (1 John 1:9) or heal the land (2 Chron. 7:14) if we humble ourselves and confess our sins.
Sin is sin!
It is time we called what is sin, sin, rather than ignoring some sins and highlighting others as if there was no tomorrow! and in the context of this discourse, Racism is SIN !! Fornication, unforgiveness, jealousy, hatred are sins so is RACISM! The racist who is a non Christian and the racist who is a Christian are both sinners period!
Let us examine our hearts and repent of racist/prejudice attitudes which are
-self augmentation through actions, words spoken and thoughts at the expense of /against others we deem inferior to us soley because of their race, racial background or nationality.
-reciprocating racists actions of others towards us makes us racists too! There is no sugarcoating to making excuses like : “well they deserve it! I am just doing what they do to me!”
-self-debasement /dislike /hate because we elevate or idolise others we deem superior to us or we are erroneously programmed to think they are (God created all men equal let that sear or cement in your soul!!!). Indirectly we accept the lies and become subconsciously racist against ourself – manifesting in self hate, hatred of our nation of origin or race…the response to racism suffered. Oh all of this can be so subtle but it is real!
It is time to awake! Racism and the weakness of being a racist or accepting the racist’s ideology as the victim – all diabolical nonsense, societal programming, anti-christ and therefore contrary to the will of God/Jesus Christ
Need regular prayers about this often neglected, un-repented sin of racism and even its negative influence in one’s life?
Jesus came to set the captives free

Deborah Esther x
Every human being has potential to excel through Christ:
“I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (Phil 4:13)
Liars sing to the tune of a shrieking lyre, a deceptive song. Claiming to be in the light of God as leaders, peacemakers, church workers and members of notable fraternities.
They abide in darkness ’cause of hate for their brother of a different mother and father, from a different land altogether, a place much further.
Delusional and encaged in hollow rage they live in twilight and are sick in their minds ’cause of the deceiver’s dynamite.
They dwell in ancient chambers with hellish ideas of who is who, delighting in the master and slave relational status quo.
The window blinds to their heart are down. Blind they think they can see, a walking dead living on dead end street.
Embossed on their hearts as a badge of honour is hate for another race, one of a foreign land or religion and are chocked with unforgiveness towards their neighbour.
They drown in the sea of hate, spouting venom in divisive hood, beating the drum of falsehood, scheming a race and social war in many a neighbourhood.
Triumphant Warriors are on the rise; some on bended knees, others in action so the world can see, as they fight for God’s love and unity to be man’s keen priority.
Forever destroyers of satanic agendas and judgements, the heavenly regiment sound the Most High’s gong with this redemptive truth in their song:
“Forgive and you shall be forgiven by the Father. Love God and one another,
regardless of skin colour, race, social status and one’s gender”.

Note: In the midst of it all…God orchestrates and allows events for his ultimate purposes (i.e hardening Pharaoh’s heart so that he reinforced his hand against Israelites …until God’s appointed time…to arise!) for judgement through suffering & ultimate glory.
In addition God speaks through events He allows AND REVEALS THE TRUE HEART CONDITION OF PEOPLE. A new era is upon us: a great showdown as never before of agents of truth/love (God) and lies/hate (Satan) in terms of interpersonal relations, with issues of tolerance, race, religion & social/economic class status being at the core of this reinforced spiritual war for souls manifesting in the natural.
Can you hear God speak, do you see the writing on the wall in significant world events?
Intercessors, Prayer Warriors Arise!!!
Yahweh Shamah (is there) God is in our midst, present in every situation because He is mindful of us (Psalm 8). Emmanuel. Praise the Lord!!
A reminder from God of our calling: “Love God, love your neighbour as yourself” (Matthew 22:37-40) & the rewards when we obey.
Introduction: The workings of the Master’s Peace among humanity:
This poem not only imparts blessings of God but gives counsel in how to be an instrument of peace through expressions of love, forgiveness and prayer for one’s enemies.
Receive the Master’s Peace
Be anxious for naught and pray for what you ought.
God’s peace will unfold as a treat,
if a slave to worry you are not.
Peace like a barging river shall knock down fortes of
deceit in your heart to
cause the enemy to retreat.
Peace like a fighter plane shall land on the combat fields of your soul to dethrone the Prince of this World, end the cycle of disorder
to commence divine order.
A peace foreign to this world in chaos because it knows not its Master and His ethos.
Who is its Master?
He is the Prince of Peace who says to his own “Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you”1.
On a mount he sat and taught
“blessed are the peacemakers they shall be called children of God”
So be blessed, not stressed.
Do not retaliate but demonstrate his love to haters.
Trade anger with prayer for users and live to unite dividers.
With your mates create colonies in a bond of peace and be the harmonies to iron out creases.
Blessed vessel of peace, wrestle for the increase of God’s government and peace to have no end.
