Prophetic exhortation to those who have suffered racial affliction & victimisation

img_2397God’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 divine.

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
nations.
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.

Poem : Rise of the Love-Truth Tramps Hate-Lies Revolution

img_2812

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!!!

You are not who you say you are! Why? You are the wrong race!

Title (Yahoo news): It happened again another flight crew cannot believe a black woman is actually a doctor.

My note: This is what black people go through regularly. Yes in the 21st century; being disbelieved or mistrusted in relation to their abilities, capabilities and intelligence, solely because of the colour of their skin.

In this article from Yahoo.com a black woman doctor was told to sit down while two nurses were allowed to tend to the sick person in flight. It happens everywhere not just in America.

I thank God for the Holy Spirit who gives all races without partiality the ability of self encouragement, perseverance, inner peace, hope and joy in the face of adversity without which many faced with such issues on a daily basis would not have the strength to amount to anything, let alone excel to become doctors, lawyers etc…

Title (Yahoo news): It happened again another flight crew cannot believe a black woman  is actually a doctor.

This is an excerpt of Ashley Denmark’s account from Yahoo news:
“As I settled in to watch a movie and read a book, about 1 hour into our flight over the intercom, a flight attendant requested a doctor or nurse to report to front of cabin to assist a passenger. When duty calls it calls – even if you are 30,000 feet in air…”

And she continued on social media :

“The flight attendant didn’t believe I was a doctor and told me to have a seat while 2 nurses provided medical care to the passenger.”

It was merely a few days ago when Tamika Cross, MD, another young, black physician described a very similar situation happening on a different Delta flight. In Cross’s situation, the passenger was unresponsive, a seemingly life-threatening situation in which every second counted.

What exactly is it that inspires seemingly normal people to prevent qualified individuals from offering their professional assistance? In life-or-death situations, do we really have time to be prejudiced?

A report by the Washington Post, points to the phenomenon of “implicit bias” as the culprit. “Overt bias certainly exists, but there is also a growing body of scientific literature that’s revealing an even more uncomfortable truth,” according to the article. “Deep-seated unconscious biases help steer our thinking and behavior — even when we don’t realize it.”

One can only hope that by sharing their stories, women like Cross and Denmark can begin to receive the respect that others — particularly older, white men — enjoy without needing to jump through hoops to prove themselves.

Denmark reiterated this hope, telling Yahoo Beauty:

“I share my story to bring awareness that the face of medicine is changing — doctors can be young, female, or come from different ethnic backgrounds. My hope is that Delta takes into account my unfortunate experience and prevents a similar occurrence from happening again. Despite this experience, I have remained focused and will continue to do so, striving to be the best physician, mother, and wife I can be.”

And to those last words, we’re happy to give her more than the benefit of the doubt.
