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.

Martin Luther King’s Dream – Twisted

Becaue of fear and poverty and miscommunication, racism has practically come back in style… all this 50 years after the “changes” of 1964. Lesson Learned:

When you fight the culture war and the political war but not the spiritual war, you lose all 3.

If I’m fighting a war, that war is on several different fronts, north, south, east, west.

In the war for Purpose of any nation or group of people… there is a war for Peace on several fronts. There’s a political front, a cultural front, a spiritual front, and a financial front, to say the least.

If I put all my energy into two fronts, and then ignore other two… Which one was the enemy come in? Obviously, the one where I’m not investing enough resources.

You can’t blame the decline of the black family on integration, which was a victory for freedom and justice on the political front. Civil rights was necessary because Government did have to solve the problem that the government created. If a citizen cannot get equal justice under the law they will always be abused. Blacks were not getting service or equal justice under the law for the taxes that they were paying. We’re not talking about private enterprises were talking about tax paying citizens under the law being served justly.

The decline of the black family was a result of the enemies attack on the spiritual front, in response to the victory on the political front. It came through sin, iniquity, singers and musicians that sang about idolatry covetousness and adultery, divorce… it came through the abortion industry and sexual revolution which is the systematic destruction of the black family and really all families.

So now we have a situation where this nation –  that was built partly on truth and partly on innocent blood – is turning into a modern day Roman empire. It has destroyed its good seeds (freedom of the Gospel, Holy Spirit and Liberty), and is embracing the full results and iniquity of the bad seeds (innocent blood, oppression).

This nation will continue to self-destruct until it recovers home base: Truth and Freedom of the Word of God, the Spirit of the Lord and Liberty, and Justice and Judgment for All people. We also must renounce all genocides and injustices and be willing to reap the consequences and then be done with them in complete repentance.

REACHING THE CULTURE? Or TRANSLATING THE GOSPEL and Creating a HOLY CULTURE?

This video is beautiful, it illustrates the scriptural difference between compromising with the culture and translating the WORD into the language of the culture. Trust me you will not be disappointed by the end of this video. It almost brought tears to my eyes.

Can’t say I agree with everything but the overall point is what I’ve been teaching and living for 15 years –

Kingdom OVER Culture:

That if we see hip hop (or any cultural expression) as a language to translate the gospel of Jesus Kingdom into, and create holy lifestyles – we will be fruitful.

If we see hip hop (or any other cultural expression) as a culture to submit to or join in and follow after just to reach people, we are in spiritual failure.

Its not about how you express or what you call it, its about what you express (SCRIPTURES), and who you express it with (THE HOLY SPIRIT)!

This amazing video message shows you a few of the scriptures that support this DIFFERENTIATION, and a real life example of the DIFFERENCE. Trust me this is amazing, especially the Papua New Guinea testimony.

It’s Going Down in the 313

Finally figured out why God keeps showing me 313 (along with 11:11, 8:18, 12:12, 4:44, and 5:55)… 313 was the year that Constantine legalized Christianity and made it the official religion of Rome. Sounds like good news – but he actually swallowed, perverted and corrupted true Christianity.

1700 years later in 2013, in the area code 313… God is bringing a complete end to the Greco Roman pagan cultural influences in His Church. What comes out of this will be beautiful, powerful, lifechanging, and completely glorifying to Jesus Christ alone.

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?

WWW… (dot dot dot) Word…Work… Wife…

WWW… (dot dot dot)
Word… Work… Wife…

Once a young man hits 12 years old, there is a simple process he should have his heart focused on – WWW… But when I say “WWW…” I don’t mean www dot foolishviolentmusic or www dot pornographyandgirlfriends or www dot Grand theft aughttostopwastingyoursoulonvideogames or www dot violenceinthestreets.

We live in a culture where young boys are hardly cultivated at all. They are either abandoned by their father, thrown to the justice system, or their souls are left to rot with entertainment (sexual and violent video games, music, television).

Boys come up ignorant. Naturally lazy, their laziness is coddled with video games and entertainment. Naturally horny, they are shown endless sexual images and told they need a girlfriend to fornicate with. Naturally ungodly, they are left alone to rot with whatever music and movies are popular at the time. Most have minimal guidance; they just follow their peers and their penis. As a man, we have all been in this foolish state at one point or another. I know I was until God rescued my soul.

Consequences are horrible. Society is left with an entire generation of unproductive, violent, lawless, fornicating, irresponsible boys who make babies and break up families. They also drive up crime, they drain the economy, tax the nation, tax the justice system, and sow bad seeds to continue the cycle and make it worse in the next generation. Not to mention, they boys suffer a hard life and end up in prison or hell unless something good happens.

In historical cultures, the few boys of this sort were simply executed. Most boys were fathered, mentored, discipled, or apprenticed to become productive and responsible men. Even today, there are a few good men who train their sons. There are also a few good churches that train Godly men. I was blessed with a great father and great churches. So I know that through the grace of God, some boys can get out of the artificial Matrix called the “teenage years” still alive, godly, productive, and responsible. Despite this, the problem seems to have spiraled out of control.

But the wisdom of God is always in control! Foolishness is bound in (tied and teamed up with) the heart of a child, but the rod of correction will drive it far from him (Proverbs 22:15). In addition to the Rod of Correction, WWW… is a wisdom tool that is meant to be easy to remember and teach. When a young boy turns into a 12 year old man… He should know that the next 6-21 years of his life should be TOTALLY and COMPLETELY dedicated to:

W – Find Gods Word
A young man that turns 12 should begin to study the scriptures day and night. He should thirst for knowledge and search to understand God and Gods recorded History of the Universe. While doing this He will also become familiar with the gospel, and the righteousness of Jesus Christ that can cover His sins if He only believes. He will also become intimate with the God who inspired the Word. As He prays in the evening, morning, and at noon, He will develop a close friendship with God. A 12 year old man – after 4 to 8 years of prayer, thirst and continual repetition and teaching – should be familiar with the entire Scriptures, having read it backwards and forwards 4 to 8 times. He would also know God who authored it. His soul should be anchored and ready for the next building block of manhood:

W – Find Your Work

This involves connecting with God and receiving a vision through prayer and fasting. This also involves discovering your purpose and writing out concrete goals and plans to reach them. This also entails constant practice at the things you are good at. Then you will produce an income of money from your Work. Are you good at art? Do you like science? Do you like to talk? Do you write well? Do you like sports? Do you have a business idea? Do you hear original music in your heart? Do you enjoy building things? You don’t have much time to waste on video games or television. For each talent or desire God has given you, you should spend 2 hours a day practicing and creating with it. Do this six days a week, and rest one day. This is in addition to your normal basic education and homework. Find your work! If a man dedicates his soul to finding his work soon after the age of 12 – His work will change the World! He is well on his way to not only becoming a productive citizen, but a WEALTHY citizen who can give freely to the poor… Not to mention take care of his:

W- Find Your Wife

Women are powerful, capable, and strong… But bearing and taking care of children is time, energy, and money consuming. Therefore, a husband is Gods preferred head of household for families with children. As a young man who has found Gods Word, and found his work – God is most likely preparing you to find your wife. Your beautiful wife you can have sex with any time. Your helpful Wife that will assist you as you conquer your Work. Your best friend you can enjoy the God-given fun of life with! Notice I did not say “girlfriend.” A “girlfriend” that is not soon to be a wife is just a distraction from Finding Gods Word and Finding Your Work. Once you find those two… you will see absolutely no need for a girlfriend. You will be looking for a wife to enjoy life with, and to help you with your Work and vision. Having knowledge of Gods Word, your Work, your vision, your gifts, and your personality will make it easy for you to find your Wife. You won’t need to test out 25 girlfriends. Especially if you have been in God’s Word day and night since 12 years old. You will know His voice and His plan.

So Stick With the Plan: WWW…

God is waiting for YOU!
The world is waiting for YOU!
Your beautiful powerful helpful wife is waiting for YOU!

If you are past the age of 12, don’t worry… you can get on the WWW plan at any age! And if you are already married, do NOT find a new wife! Find out new ways to love your wife.
Our society has created a teen culture that stupefies young adults for the purpose of making money off of them. Don’t join it. Be a productive, responsible, and fun loving REAL man on the WWW… plan!

Starting at Age 12 (at least):
1. Find Gods Word: 4 – 8 years should give you a good foundation… Then love it for the rest of your life!
2. Find Your Work: 6-16 years should give you a good start… Then love it for the rest of your life! 3. Find Your Wife: 6-21 years should give you enough time to prepare for her… Then love her for the rest of your life!
…(dot dot dot) means for the rest of your life!

Men in Scripture who did it WWW-style starting at age 12 or earlier:
Adam: Was created, spoke with God. Found work in the garden. Then God brought him his wife. (Genesis)

Joseph: Started out with dreams and his vision as a teen… Found his work in Egypt. Found His wife last. (Genesis)

Samuel: Started with Gods voice as a child, found his work in the temple. Found his wife later. (1 Samuel)
