Don’t Let Past Injustices Trap Your Mind

A nation that turns the gospel into genocide also turns their heritage into hell.

Many people are already burning in hell for the atrocities they committed in the past, whether overt (rosewood, black wall street, genocide, slavery) or covert (redlining, planned parenthood, systematic discrimination).

They are already reaping what they sowed. Its very important to have a knowledge of history, but our primary focus should be to bring repentance and forgiveness for the sins that we face today.

Don’t worry about the sins and injustices that people are already burning in hell for. Focus on applying repentance, the Cross, the blood of Jesus, and forgiveness to the sins that are right in front of your face.

Neither anger or wrath, nor racism or a prideful superiority complex can ever advance a family, people, city, or nation. The gospel of Christ, the Spirit of Wisdom, diligence, prudence, character, and Love are the only things that can truly advance a family, people, city, or nation.

Creating a CULTURE of Biblical literacy is the best thing you can do for your family, church, and community.

When a people finds its spiritual calling, it also finds elevation in its natural calling. This is where the spirit of wisdom starts to develop and you start to see diligence, prudence, character, and savings. Then when you get savings you get business ideas. Then when you have business and protection of those businesses, you can advance your family and your community. The wisdom comes from God, and the savings (inheritance) comes from your parents or your employer or customers.

Ecclesiastes 7:11
Wisdom is good with an inheritance: and by it there is profit to them that see the sun.

Ultimately God holds the wisdom in His hands, and advancement only comes from our sacrificed lives given to Jesus. God will make sure that you reap what you have sown.

dark skinned vs light skinned… good hair vs bad hair????

I absolutely HATE WITH A PASSION the dark vs light and good hair vs bad hair culture. I believe in pursuing God’s creativity and beauty with what He gave you. Its all about confidence, not looking to emulate what the media shows you.

Iniquity is in the Heart of Men

The root of it is really just the sinful human nature that uses any chance it can get to spread pride, superiority, and self-seeking merchandising strategies.

Its not limited to just African American racism or Eurocentric culture either. Believe it or not in India there are caramel colored women that think they are ugly because they are not beige. They even have skin cream lighteners sold on nationally televised commercials where a lightskinned Indian woman gets paler and paler, and all the sudden her dream man wants her.

Proverbs 16
6 By mercy and truth iniquity is purged: and by the fear of the Lord men depart from evil.

Men everywhere in every culture have to purify their iniquities with Mercy and Truth, and build their faith in God and His Creative Glory…

Gods Creativity and Your Confidence

Man looks on outward appearance, but God looks at the heart. Everyone has a purpose and if you connect to God’s Creativity your beauty will eventually shine.

The more you allow yourself to receive communication or marketing from the workers of iniquity, the more you will hate yourself and give them the advantage over you, because that’s Satan’s goal. Dark skin is just as beautiful as light skin but if the dark skin has no confidence and doesn’t smile, how can it be beautiful? (SoS 1:5 I am dark and lovely, black and comely…)

Discipline and Order

One of my sons has soft hair, one has harder hair. They both are appealing to me, but in culture coarser hair is considered lesser.

Why… because the human eye is drawn to order… that’s just a natural fact. Order is beauty because it makes you wonder about the person who ordered it. The human eye is also drawn to symmetry and balance.

It takes more work to bring order to harder hair than softer hair. Soft hair doesnt go wild until 2 or 3 inches, and can be ordered with a swipe of a comb. Coarse hair needs to be trained from the beginning. That’s why discipline is key.

A wild bush looks less appealing than a pine tree that grows straight up with straight needles. But when that bush is trimmed it is just as beautiful. Both the bush and the pine tree were created by God and have the same potential for beauty. One just needs more input and discipline.

As a matter of fact you can do more with the bush than you can do with the pine tree. The harder hair needs more discipline but it looks just as good and even better when it is disciplined.

I believe if you pursue God’s creativity with discipline you can be just as powerful and beautiful as someone who came out with an easier appealing look in the eyes of man.

Creativity, Confidence, Discipline, and Balance = Opportunity

That’s the value of using what God has given you even if it seems at first to be less in the eyes of man. Your confidence and discipline in God’s creativity can create something the world has never seen… Which can ultimately bring glory to God.

A Cultural Abortion

How Can Any Culture Be Successful when it’s most talented businessmen choose to sell either physical poison (drugs) or spiritual poison (wicked music)? And it’s most talented preachers preach to please the people instead of the God that sent them?
