The Solution to Unifying the Races

Screen Shot 2020-06-04 at 8.55.32 PMBy now you have been inundated with racial news. The bubble of injustice is popping and the mess that is being made is horrifyingly good. God’s normal cleanses require death. The Flood, the firstborn in Egypt, Sodom and Gomorrah, Pompeii, etc. Lasting change is never without death. It is the cornerstone of change. Salvation for the believer is only acquired because Jesus died. Death is necessary for change. George Floyd would not have been the straw without his death. His death fills up the number of deaths required for outrage and now what will become of his memorial?

The solution is easy. Punish evildoers. If the evildoers are not punished they will become emboldened and more death will follow. Blood will run in the streets and there will be no peace.

Reparations for black people. The Bible says that money answers all things. If black Americans had their own economic base, they would naturally have the power to protect themselves from race soldiers (racist police officers).

Removing statues and putting Black Lives Matter on the streets is good. Racists symbols (statues) should not be paraded for all to see, but relegated to dusty closets in a historic museum.

Pray.

 

You Don’t See Miracles and Your Prayer is Powerless

22d0c63f36a84746f7b39365a822b8d0God will never be mocked. Whatsoever a man sows, he reaps. Anyone can have a conversation with themselves or with the universe. Anyone can speak into the ear hoping to be heard by someone, but few know how to address a King.

If you are going to have a conversation with God that leads to power you must understand your position and the position of the one you are trying to reach. In the natural, there are natural barriers. I cannot simply pick up the phone and call Scarlett Johannson. There are steps I must take to get her ear. God is no different.

You can cry and shout and act frantic, but will God hear? Saul sought with tears the Lord and was not heard. How many have cried out and received no answer? How many have given up and say within their hearts there is no God. I tried your God and it did not work. You have rightly said, you tried “my” God. God must be your God to be heard on high.

You must submit yourself before the Mighty God of Israel. You must confess your sins and position yourself with humility. There is a time when tears and shouts will work, however, not without an already established relationship. You do not role up on God and make demands, no you humble yourself under His preexisting demands and he will hear you.

You cannot skip steps with God. There is only one door and no other way. You take his way or remain on the highway to hell. You may start here with this prayer:

Heavenly Father, forgive me. I have sinned against you. I have taken the will that you have given me and rejected you and now I come to you, confessing my sins before you. I will look for your hands in motion as I submit to your demands. I will turn away from lying and speak the truth, I will cease sexual sin and honor you. Heal my mind and renew a right spirit within me. My hands are lifted high, please make them holy. I believe in Jesus and the work done on the cross. I believe in the resurrection and I believe in the Comforter whom you will send. My heart is open for your reception. Breathe life into me and make me over. In Jesus name.

In your obedience read the Bible and listen without adding your context.

Prioritize God

God requires that we seek Him in the morning and in the evening. In fact, good success follows the one that meditates on his law both day and night. God desires that we are preoccupied by thoughts concerning Him and His interest. God promises to give us the desires of our heart when we delight ourselves in Him.

We must make a daily decision to put God in all our doings. When we work, we do so, according to the strength He gives us. When we play, we do so, according to the time He gives us. When we pray, read the Word, or fast, we do all in the name of the Lord. Everything we do, should be offered to the Lord. When we sin, we should confess it. If your entire world is saturated with working out your salvation with fear and trembling, you have a good chance of saving your soul from hell.

We already know the way is narrow and few find it. We already know that God has no patients for people who hide their talents for any reason. We already know that God requires our fear and devotion. Anyone who believes they can deceive the Lord, only mock themselves.

A good litmus test of your love for God is your love for your enemy. Loving your enemy is not natural, so when you do, it must be God doing it through you.

Be preoccupied with Him and God will make sure He satisfies you.

Teenager Ran Away to Be With Boy She Met on Dating Site. A Week Later She Was Dead.

A South Dakota teenager has admitted to slaying a 16-year-old girl who “ran away” from home to live with him after they met on an online dating website, authorities said.

Michael Campbell, 17, pleaded guilty to first-degree manslaughter on Thursday for the death of Shayna Ritthaler, a 16-year-old from Moorcroft, Wyoming, who was reported missing from a local coffee shop on Oct. 3. Less than a week later, her body was found in the basement bedroom of Campbell’s home.

“We got into an argument and then I shot her,” Campbell said during a change-of-plea hearing on Thursday, before referring to the teenager as his girlfriend, according to the Associated Press. “I shot her in the head.”

Meade County State’s Attorney Michele Bordewyk said in court that the two teenagers met on an online chat and dating website, Badoo. After weeks of talking online, the pair eventually planned for Campbell to drive to Wyoming so Ritthaler could “run away and live with him in his house,” prosecutors said in court on Thursday, the Argus Leader reported.

On Oct. 3, Ritthaler was seen getting into Campbell’s car at a coffee shop about four hours outside of Cheyenne. Prosecutors say the 17-year-old then drove her back to his home in Sturgis, South Dakota, about an hour away.

But back at Campbell’s home that he shared with his mother, the teenagers got into an argument. While Bordewyk said it wasn’t clear what sparked the argument, it escalated when Campbell grabbed a gun and shot Ritthaler once in the head.

The 17-year-old shot her “without the design to cause her death,” Bordewyk said, according to AP. When asked by Judge Kevin Krull if he had any justification for killing Ritthaler, Campbell replied: “No.”

On October 6, authorities found Campbell’s car and questioned him. The next day, Ritthaler’s body was found in his basement and the 17-year-old was arrested immediately.

Many details surrounding the shooting remain unclear because a Meade County judge sealed the case’s affidavit on Oct. 10 at the request of the county prosecutor who cited the “potential publicity” of a case that had a “sensitive nature.”

After his arrest in October, Campbell pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity with first and second-degree murder but changed his plea in Meade County Court as part of an agreement with prosecutors.

The plea agreement dismissed the murder charges and recommended a 55-year prison sentence. He will be sentenced on July 10.

 

For many cautious Blacks and Interracial Couples, the move to reopen America is not a ‘black friendly’ campaign

As protests erupt over stay-at-home orders and the clamor to reopen the economy becomes louder, the coalition of people storming state Capitols — some armed with semi-automatic weapons and most not wearing masks or observing social distancing guidelines — have had one thing in common: Almost all of them are white.

African Americans, for the most part, are not joining the crowds in California, Michigan, Georgia, Wisconsin and other parts of the country to demand that local governments reopen their cities.

For many black Americans, the general perception is that the throngs of white protesters are steeped in racism, white supremacy and anti-black sentiments. And so many black Americans would feel unwelcome — and perhaps afraid — given the presence of Confederate flags, swastikas and hangman’s nooses. Source
