Jeremiah 19:15 “Thus says the LORD of hosts, the God of Israel, ‘Behold, I am about to bring on this city and all its towns the entire calamity that I have declared against it, because they have stiffened their necks so as not to heed My words.’
Acts 8:25 “So, when they had solemnly testified and spoken the word of the Lord, they started back to Jerusalem, and were preaching the gospel to many villages of the Samaritans.
A village is a location within the earth that encompass a tribe of families that work together to strengthen the village. All individuals dwelling within the village are stakeholders to the survival of the village, so if marauders come to invade, all tribes must join as one to defend the entire village. Most villages thrive because of strong elders who train and unite all, while many become weak over generations and are conquered by greed, corruption, disobedience and fear. In our generation, racism is the leading cause for turmoil within the village. There is no getting around it, under it or over it! We can not call ourselves #Americans while there are battles among the various tribes; Asian, Hispanic, Cush, Italian, Middle Eastern, and European, and though one tribe may claim dominance or superiority over other tribes, we will still be immigrants to the village called UNITED STATES of #AMERICA.
For a village to be united, the villagers have to quit being divided and live up to pledges it constantly spews during the singing of the “National Anthem” or when they say “God bless America” . This admiration for an all powerful spiritual being even extends to American currency “In God we Trust”. It is time to stop paying homage to the god of iniquity that is exiled from heaven and begin showing obedience to YHWH that dwells in Heaven. That too was a village of ancient generations, but what a child learns from their family is what they will take with them for the rest of their life. This is the case for early generations of the village with history of racism, bigotry, class separation, violence, sexual abuse, which is the foundation of the issues we face today. And though our village have adapted many of the governmental practices and economic structures of past developed villages, we are still experiencing the growing pains of a developing society.
We only have to examine the strong partisanship between Republicans and Democrats. The civil war between the north and south, that still is a daily remainder regarding the injustice, racial strife and bias laws still existing today. Gentrification in certain urban communities that have pitied rich against the poor and we still say “God bless America”. Many argue that there is no YHWH, because they say “would a loving Father permit all this violence, misery and death upon the earth” but the scriptures lays out that #Lucifer and his earthly army is behind the scenes with all the major conflicts involving racism, murder, paganism, violence and hypocrisy that is plaguing the village.
The real root of the village problems is the disobedience and lack of theological education that causes spiritual illiteracy and violence within a village. In past generations, it was relied upon by the elders to increase knowledge among the people to put down any falsehoods when they arise. These elders were looked upon to train men how to be warriors physically and spiritually, while assisting the women with daily necessities needed for the village and defending the walls while the warriors are in the field. These elders were looked upon as pillars that kept the village strong but in our generation, many elders have a different agenda while pillaging the village from within. Without a strategy in place to prepare the youth spiritually and mentality for the hardships ahead, marauders have strategized schemes to divide whole tribes based on ethnicity, economics, social class, education, patriotism. From generation to generation, these marauders have taken individuals fears and prejudices and turned them into profits for themselves. Causing the village to be attacked from within without bonafide and courageous elders to defend against the marauders.
Psalm 144:1 “Praise YHWH, who is my rock. He trains my hands for war and gives my fingers skill for battle.”
Isaiah 49:25 “Who can snatch the plunder of war from the hands of a warrior? Who can demand that a tyrant let his captives go?”
500 plus years since the emergence of the village we occupy today, there is still pockets of racism, bigotry and ignorance because of the complexion of a person’s skin instead of the content of their heart. Obedience and disobedience dwells in all ethnicities and not one individual present or past moved the needle in unifying all persons within the village. Many elders and young warriors have tried, but outside marauders have infiltrated and destroyed via drugs and alcohol, perversion, scandal, corruption, poverty, fear and assassination. There is a battle being waged on a daily basis among the untrained, uneducated, disobedient youth, wrecking havoc on families and generations to come. Many ask, are they lost and confused without proper direction? should law and order be strictly enforced to halt the trouble makers? should we counsel these youths using man’s or Elohim laws? Not long ago, our developing village adhered to biblical principles during the birth and adolescent years, only to abandon sound doctrines for misquoted, altered and outright lies of antagonists who are spiritually corrupt and doubters of YHWH presence. These same antagonists pacify the villagers with entertainment, employment, recreational activities, anti-religious propaganda and cycles of calm and peace, while secretly destroying the elders and warriors psychologically, physically, theologically and financially. History written both from mankind and apostles have agreed that spiritual and mental enslavement extends beyond class, gender, ethnicity, secular education and age.
The plagues of our village i.e..mental and physical abuse, spousal and child abandonment, poverty, depravity, greed, spiritual illiteracy, are all birthed by paganism, gnostic religions, politics, economics, racism and are contributing factors to the overwhelming homelessness, poverty and escalating homicide rate. Racism is a sinful trait that only hurts the growth of a village and without accurate research and study of mankind history beyond the colonialists writings and secular educational publications utilized in public school systems, the youth will morph into adulthood unprepared and inadequate for challenges of #American society.
Truth outweighs bigotry and spiritual wisdom contradicts gnostic religion. We must dis-continue on the path of racial and class inclusion that makes our village divided, or we will further separate our ideas and strengths, leaving the village wide open to marauders.
