I’m amazed daily at the hypocrisy that completely surrounds me.

Everyone knows that the Orlando shooter was a radical Muslim yet this administration continues its narrative no matter how dumb it looks to even their supporters so when I read the attached article all I could do was shake my head in disbelief.

I “guarandarntee” you that if the Orlando shooter had been Christian, had pledged allegiance to the Tea party, and had mentioned that he was killing people in the name of Jesus that this administration would not have omitted anything.

Would the words NRA be omitted if he was a member?

Would the word Republican have been admitted if he had been a Republican and supported Trump instead of him being rumored to support Hillary? I don’t think so.

What would the outrage be if ANYTHING had been redacted from these transcripts under the Bush or ANY Republican administration (and rightfully so).

I SMH at you who idolize this administration to the point that you won’t call them out YET you called out Bush for slightest issue (again…rightfully so…I did also).

Lastly, read today that a person in the Air Force was removed from an event for mentioning God.

Before anyone dares say to me that President Obama has nothing to do with it I should have you remember that President Obama is the Commander In Chief is allowing this to happen and I further remind you that separation of church and state does not mean that someone has to leave their faith at home EVEN in the military.

For the past almost eight years there has been a silent but obvious assaults on Christianity (they don’t mess with Muslims or other religions and even give waivers for individuals in other faiths so that they can wear important religious dress).

How can you allow religious dress from other religions which points to and speaks of “their” God which obviously shouts about their faith and I SMH at the hypocrisy of this administration and those who worship it (when one absolves him or herself of calling out things that are true one has thus stopped worshipping the one that is Truth and is either knowingly or unknowingly working in concert with the enemy of “Truth”.

Just when I think that I cannot be amazed at the hypocrisy of people on social media the hypocrites never fail to disappoint and amaze me at how even more hypocritical people can be.

I’ve been off of social media and regular media for sometime only to watch the news today only to hear the Obama administration’s CIA Director say exactly what myself and those who are concerned with the influx of invented refugees from Syria and the Middle East.

We were called everything from bigots, etc., for saying EXACTLY what the FBI director is saying in this matter and below are three articles that I wrote some time ago and one that I forgot about that was prophetic about Orlando as it concerns Isis, radical Islam, and the LBGT community being in danger from Islamist fundamentalist:

https://ronbigblackgarrett.wordpress.com/2015/03/17/lbgt-community-are-you-awake-yet-our-government-is-allowing-isis-in-this-country-and-they-will-kill-you/

https://ronbigblackgarrett.wordpress.com/2015/11/20/put-up-or-shut-up-before-you-castigate-christians-for-being-wary-of-the-terrorists-that-are-hiding-among-the-refugees/

https://ronbigblackgarrett.wordpress.com/2015/09/11/todays-rant-i-care-about-the-refugees-too-but/

My question is since this man works for the administration are you who castigated me going to castigate this administration for what the Obama administration’s CIA director Brennan is saying in his briefing on Capitol Hill which BY THE WAY contradicts the administration’s past and recent comments on Isis (their strength, their numbers, their progress, etc.):

http://www.breitbart.com/video/2016/06/16/cia-director-islamic-state-intensify-global-attacks/

In my former capacity as an Anti-Terrorism briefer I stated for sometime that ISIS will utilize the refugee stream to come into this country to kill people.

Though I expect none I would appreciate apologies in the comments below yet I know that since many of you fail to recognize the hypocrisy that you spew, lack honor to admit wrong, and are too cowardly or too love struck with this administration to call them out for hypocrisy, duplicity, and outright lying to we the people.

Lastly, I’m further amazed at how lil ole me has been ahead of this administration at every turn in my predictions because mine do not come from emotion…mine comes from educated experience and wisdom from God because emotions are fleeting and can change in an instant while God and the wisdom that He grants one is eternal and true.

Love my brothers Rick and Bubba (the link is to a video…once you watch it the following will make sense).

I was speaking to a gay friend about these issues (the current debates on Islam, Christians, religion, Islamist terrorists, and the constant accusations of Christian “hate” when we really only want to live according to our beliefs) some time ago and said basically the same thing.

IF you truly love and serve Jesus you CANNOT participate in “hate”.

I have friends from almost every persuasion and respect their right to live as they see fit yet I as a Christian rarely am afforded the same.

I don’t expect the Muslim, the Hindu etc., to be forced to believe what I believe yet daily there are attempts to force me into either denouncing my beliefs or to walk in agreement with others.

What’s sad is that many in the LBGT community are tired of the overt activism that is done in their name.

How bout we simply be truthful to one another (even if it hurts), agree to disagree and love one another regardless of our disagreements.

What’s sad is that that is the desire of most Christians yet the media, activists, and other “True haters” (the ones who are truly spreading hate) continues to define hate as anything that is Christian…even more sad is that it is often faux Christian’s who claim relationship with God who are really the problem.

Acts 4:13: Now as they observed the confidence of Peter and John and understood that they were uneducated and untrained men, they were amazed, and began to recognize them as having been with Jesus.

Jeremiah 29:11: 11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.

As I finished reading today’s “Coffee Break” devotional by my dear sister @Lorraine Ezell (Link: http://coffeebreakdevotional.blogspot.com/) the Holy Spirit guided me back to the scripture from Acts and impressed upon me “the story of your NOW life, huh?”.

Since I am a person who loves a life that is filled with humor I knew that God was sort of poking his beautiful finger in my side saying “that’s you!!!” so of course I LOL’ed because it’s “soooo” true.

Most people don’t know that I struggled in school due to all of the distractions in my environment (no father, domestic abuse, surrounded by violence, generational curses, etc.) and I was routinely called a “dummy” and someone who would “never amount to nothing” by many of those as I grew up that should have been encouraging me and helping me instead of beating me down (this practice is continued today no matter what “hood”…black, white, or “other” people live in…stupidity is an equal opportunity foe).

But God!!!

Close to the time for me to hopefully graduate high school I looked around and determined that if I stayed where I was that I would either be selling drugs (had already sold some weed..sorry Momma…now you know), working a job that I hated due to my lack of education, in prison, or dead so I determined to “get out” any way I could and I did through the Army (no way at that time could I have gotten into college or a trade school).

When I gave my life to Christ He walked me back through those times and showed me that He was with me all of the way and that even through my bad choices He always had a “plan” for me, it was “good”, and that He would see me through it…and this was even when I was angry at Him and even staring my “hate” of Him on more than one occasion for allowing me to grow up in my mess of a childhood…Praise Him!

What does this walk down memory lane have to do with Acts 4:13?

Well, as you can see I was never a rocket scientist and couldn’t even stay I’m a Holiday Inn Express so that I could pretend to be one.

This is the reason that so many that knew me before I gave my life to Christ ESPECIALLY those that I grew up with stand in amazement when they read anything that I now write.  Further, sometimes when I go back to my hometown I have gotten used to the question “is that YOU?”  Or “nawww…that can’t be you…you couldn’t even put two,sentences together when you were a kid!”,  LOL!!!

Here I am…this “uneducated” and “untrained” man being used by the Lord whomNOW has so much confidence and who is such a far cry from the little boy who used to only puff his chest out only pretending to be one (many “men” do this today trying to fool people into believing that they are real men when in fact they are not…real men serve Jesus!).

So as I read this scripture today God reminded me of my past which lead Him to show me how HIS wisdom and my access to it makes me “wise” among men (I appear “stupid” sans of it), and how He will continue to grow me in wisdom as I continue to follow Him towards eternity…Ain’t He GREAT?

There is someone reading this today who struggling and who feels dumb, stupid, a failure, broke down, etc., because that is all that you have ever been told that you are and that you will ever be.

I have news for you…you can either continue to listening to that nonsense or you can start listening to what God has to say about you…His plans of “prospering” YOU, and His plans to give you “hope and a future.

He is using this blogpost RIGHT NOW to get your attention to tell you to get your eyes off of this world and to get your eyes onto Him!

You are INTELLIGENT because you have access to HIS intelligence!
You CAN be WISE because you have access and the key “Jesus” to the vast storehouse of His wisdom.

And most importantly…YOU ARE LOVED with an everlasting love that penetrates your person down to the tiniest cell into the very depths of your spirit!

He said and did all of this for me and If He did it (for me He will surely do it for you and one day you will look back and do as I did today thanking God for how far He has brought you and for giving you wisdom that the whole world will marvel at.

He loves you today, forever, and always!

Your brother in Christ (the former “dummy”…only because I listened to and received it from the people saying it instead of listening to what God’s word says that He said I am),

I am posting this following comments from a thread that I felt was good for dialogue concerning some of the “inciting” that Pres Obama has done while in office. I am on record numerous times as to how I feel about Mr. Trump and much of his rhetoric yet I feel that people are being hypocritical when they do not hold our President and the other Democratic candidates to the same standard that they hold Mr. Trump and Republicans to. (I, however, as an independent have no such need to take sides and can honestly report what my God-given brain can see—-enjoy…or not…it’s still the truth:

“The difference is that far too many black folk and Democrats give Pres Obama cover when he incites or race baits. He has done both numerous times in pre his presidency and during it but he continues to be given a pass because so many worship him due to their “pride” in his being the first black president or because he is the Democrat savior.

Either way I don’t have that problem because the Holy Spirit instructed me long ago away from my “blackness” into a life of “Christ-ness” which caused me to trade in my “black card” (which has so many strings attached to it…go against anything “black” and they will pull it with tha quickness) and I received a Jesus card that has no songs attached and can never be taken away from me and is eternal.

People…including many in the “body” are loath to criticize theirs”hero’s” this includes Dem, Repub, black, white, etc., which is why Pres Obama can say the same thing and so many give him a pass. Hillary, Pres Obama, and Bernie Sanders have said many of the same things that Trump has said over the years yet the media and their supporters gloss over it with utter hypocrisy.

As a former Democrat I can clearly recall the numerous racist statements that Hillary, Bill, Strom Thurmond, and others said an as a young man I twisted my head sideways like a dog in amazement, looked around at other blacks thinking “don’t y’all hear this too?” YET black folk gloss over those racist statements and continues to vote for those party bosses with little to no accountability. They decree the “rich” yet fail to acknowledge that they are in bed with them making back room deals with them.

Pres Obama rails on Pres Bush’s “oil money” yet black folk,and Dems fail to check his allegiance and the money that he, Michelle, Valerie Jarrett, Al Gore, and Rahm Emmanuel have made pre and during his presidency on “clean energy” while making policy with the EPA. Yet, people get so upset with me simply because I have the depth of character given to me by Jesus to point out this truth,and not give Dems or Repubs alike a pass when they do wrong.

I have no issue if we disagree on policy issues but I refuse to compromise and gloss over when anyone (including politicians or anyone else) lies,or,practices duplicity and dishonesty….period!

(The following is a response as to what the “context” of the attached statements from Pres Obama”

“By the way…I recall the “context” of EVERY one of those statements (attached) and the were all not helpful during the situations in high they were prevented. Yet, if you know his history and his belief (Saul Alinsky) that a “crisis” must NEVER “go to waste” and must always be used to further the socio-communist agenda (regardless of the chaos that ensued…Alinsky-ites relish chaos because the can keep people at their bidding in it…its how they keep black folk voting for who they say instead of who they individually believe in…can I say “control”.

Hillary Clinton, Barack Obama, Rahm Emmanuel, Valerie Jarrett, etc., are all Alinsky-ites and their bible is not of the Christian God but is Alinsky’s book “Rules for Radicals” and NO Holy Spirit filled Christian can read that book and not be overcome with a sense of the evil,within its pages. They also relish the doctrines of “Chairman Mao”, Lenin, and Stalin.

Lastly, these are the same doctrines that created Hitler yet these people believe in them and no one bats an eye and I SMH @that.

Job 7: 11-18:

11 “Therefore I will not restrain my mouth; I will speak in the anguish of my spirit; I will complain in the bitterness of my soul.
12 Am I the sea, or a sea monster, that you set a guard over me?
13 When I say, ‘My bed will comfort me, my couch will ease my complaint,’
14 then you scare me with dreams and terrify me with visions,
15 so that I would choose strangling and death rather than my bones.
16 I loathe my life; I would not live forever. Leave me alone, for my days are a breath.
17 What is man, that you make so much of him, and that you set your heart on him,
18 visit him every morning and test him every moment?

Sometimes I feel like Job…not that I’m suffering from anything like he did in my personal life but I suffer a deep pit in my heart and soul when God reveals to me the depths of foolishness that He has shown me in many of my family and friends who claim Christ yet fail to hear from His Holy Spirit.

I know this is a hard thing to hear…trust me, it was when God put it in my heart today as I read from His Holy texts and to tell the truth this is one of many posts that I have been loath and heartbroken to write as of late because God has shown me that many people (many people whom I care deeply about) who read the words that I write have no clue that the anger and disgust that they have when reading the things I write or in hearing the things that I say are in reality suffering from the “pride” that God so warns us to avoid through His many prophets, teachers, and scribes in the Bible and though the people that He currently speaks through that TRULY hear and recognize His voice via His Holy Spirit.

Again, I know it’s tough to hear and I can feel the “un-friends” or “unsubscribe” clicks that are about to happen as I type this because God has already placed the knowledge that some will do this even before I post this BUT if I truly am going to live as He says that I will… I MUST do as He says and pen this warning of the many heartfelt warnings that He has given me to share with HIS people and all that know me knows that even when faced with the pressure of the ever-increasingly “PC” (politically correct) world that we live with that this (me) man of God will do…what…the…Master…instructs….me….to…do.

I don’t claim to be anything special, I don’t claim to hear any more from God than anyone else does, I don’t claim to always fully comprehend what He is telling me or what He instructs me to say.

Heck, and since I’m an honest man I don’t always agree with what He tells me, and as I have stated I’m not always thrilled to be the “mouthpiece” that God uses me to be

However, I MUST always at least have a “willing heart” that will allow me to soar past my “questions”, my doubts, my flesh, the devil’s negative whispers, and my own selfish desires (wants/needs) so that He can use me not to fulfill my own wishes BUT so that I may fulfill HIS will for THAT IS why He created me and THAT is what I signed up for when I joined HIS Holy Army and just as I do daily..I reaffirm this commitment RIGHT NOW before you dear brothers and sisters.

I could understand if anything that I ever wrote or said was much like what I wrote or said in my former life was laden with “death” because there was no “life” anywhere in it but I do my best represent Jesus Christ in the best way that this (me) vessel (that’s all that I am) can with the level of God’s unmerited grace and mercy that I’ve learned to utilize in the 48 years that I’ve roamed this earthly realm.

YES, sometimes I fail but ONLY when I use MY words NOT HIS and I praise Him that even with all of my perfections He STILL chooses to use me and more importantly HE STILL LOVES ME!!!! PRAISE GOD!!!

So, it is without any further hesitation that I speak what God spoke into my heart today as was engrossed in reading His Word today.

There are many of you dear brothers and sisters who are ignoring HIS word and falling for the world’s “word” and He wants you to know that “it’s” word is the enemy’s word.

Further, there are many of you that (much like His people Israel did over and over again in the Bible) who are ignoring what His Word says because it makes you uncomfortable and put’s you at odds with “man” and his society.

In accepting this comfortable life you are not only turning your back on God you are aligning yourself with the dark, evil forces that rule this world no matter how much you think you are aligned with God.

By your acceptance of this world’s ways you are rebelling against the God who saved you from “hell, death, and the grave” and you will face judgment on the day that the Lord returns in all of His “might and glory”.

You have accepted what the world says is “right” and have disparaged God’s people (your brothers and sisters) when they’ve only tried to relay the message from Him that you are “wrong” and your “pride” is causing you to stumble towards a great “fall”.

BUT…God in His forever grace and mercy also wanted me to let you know that it’s not too late and all that you need to do is simply seek Him and you will find Him, ask Him for forgiveness and you will be forgiven, repent and turn away from the world’s evil, and that He is waiting for you with open arms only if you will humble yourself before His mighty hand.

Shucks, you are not alone in this for in writing this there are things that God has shown me that I currently allow in my life that are a compromise to this world’s way of doing things and I must proceed in the same steps in the fore-mentioned paragraph and know that I paused while writing this and repented for what He showed me in my heart, asked for forgiveness for it, and ran into His open arms with worship and praise thanking Him for not letting me “reap” what I was “sowing”…PRAISE GOD!!!

We (black folk…I’m still one since no one seems to be big or tough or willing enough to take my “card”…but I’m Jesus FIRST, ALWAYS, AND FOREVER!) cannot say that we desire an end to racism and then support groups that are racists.

If one is a “Christian” the support of ANY hate group (black, white, or “other) is un-Godly and hypocritical yet even if one does not identify as a Christian the hypocrisy of ANYONE supporting a group that hates people because they belong to another race is similarly hypocritical.

I’m going to let the cat out of the proverbial bag right now…as a youth I considered myself a junior Black Panther because back then the group was more about protecting black people and black neighborhoods from the evils of the racist people who were trying to harm them.

But as I grew up I started noticing that the group was itself starting to resemble the very people that they were supposedly fighting against…racists.

Our history teaches us that though many white people where racist that there were also many that fought racism and even died alongside black people in the pursuit of justice.

As I became more and more literate in history I realized that it was not white people who I had a problem with but with the racists that prevailed in their group.

I inherently knew this yet it was not until I gave my life to Christ and He firmly but lovingly let me know that not only was my black first mentality wrong but that it was also evil and a perversion of His justice in how racism was to be dealt with by the Christian…righteously via Jesus Christ.

Whether anyone likes it or not I MUST forewarn the “Christian” that you MUST let go of your pride so that you can take this wrong mindset/attitude before God, repent of it, and ask Him for forgiveness so that He will heal your heart of it because He has taught and shown me through scripture, wisdom via His Holy Spirit, and through revelation that “pride” in your race, culture, or whatever that comes before the Word and will of God IS NOT in line with Him and therefore MUST be cast out of the Christian’s life or be subject to judgement.

I know that this is heavy but scripture bears this out (Matthew 6:14-15: For if you forgive other people when they sin against you, your Heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others for their sins, your Father will not forgive yours”.) meaning that if one holds onto this in their heart that they are in danger of themselves not being forgiven and thus facing hellfire if you believe in that sort of thing….I do…because God has told/shown me so.

The Black Panthers the Ku Klux Klan, and other hate groups do not practice God’s word and thus are not to be aligned with or supported even if they once began as an instrument of Justice to help the oppressed.

Lastly, we must not let pride and the past/current injustices that occur at the hands of “man” sway us from an unwavering path towards total submission/obedience to Christ Jesus for no amount of loyalty to your blackness, your whiteness, your Hispanic-ness, your Asian-ness, or whatever “ness” you claim as your heritage can get you into Heaven…Only Christ can.
