When Are You Going To Stop Listening To The World’s Voice On How To Handle Racism And Start Listening To God’s

Mat 6:12 (TEB) “Forgive us the wrongs that we have done, as we forgive the wrongs others have done us.”

Luke 6:37 (NIV) “…Forgive, and you will be forgiven.”

Mat 6:14-15 (NIV) “For if you forgive men when they sin against you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But, if you do not forgive men their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.”

Mark 11:25 (NIV) “And when you stand praying, if you hold anything against anyone, forgive him, so that your Father in heaven may forgive you your sins.”

1 John 2:9 (Wey) Any one who professes to be in the light and yet hates his brother is still in darkness.

I fail to understand how any “leader” can label him or herself a “Christian” YET eschew the Lord’s command to “forgive, lest ye be forgiven” and then “rile” up people to harm others because of actual or perceived “wrongs” against them or the people in their “community”.

We see time and again people from the highest levels of our government to the simple person on the street WHO claim Christ as their Savior continually (and EVEN FROM THE PULPIT I might add) incite people of one race or another to berate, revile, or even commit violent acts against those of another race, creed, social or socio-economic status, and/or skin color because of current or past wrongs or perceived wrongs.

If we are “Christians”…or someone who claims or purports to be a follower in Christ we CANNOT do as the world does and repay evil for evil.

If you are NOT a Christian AND even if you are and are NOT being led by the Holy Spirit the following scriptures will NOT make sense to you. If, however, you do claim Christ and it does not make sense to you I would submit to you that you need to reassess your “walk” with Christ because something is very wrong.

As He spoke into my heart a long time ago…God is NOT interested in How I feel about what someone said or did wrong to me…He is only interested in HOW I RESPOND to it AND IF I will respond in obedience as it is spelled out in His Holy Word to those that have aggrieved or that I have perceived to have aggrieved me.

1 Peter 3:9 (NIV): 9 Do not repay evil with evil or insult with insult. On the contrary, repay evil with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing.

1 Thessalonians 5:15 (ESV): 15 See that no one repays anyone evil for evil, but always seek to do good to one another and to everyone.

Romans 12:17-21 (NIV): 17 Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone. 18 If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. 19 Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: “It is mine to avenge; I will repay,”[a] says the Lord. 20 On the contrary:

“If your enemy is hungry, feed him;

if he is thirsty, give him something to drink.

In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head.”[b]

21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.

Please show me dear brother or sister where there is ANY “wiggle” room for you to continue to be your disobedient, racist and/or unforgiving self.

So! IF YOU are a “Christian” know that the lame excuses that you give of “oh, look at what they did in the past”, or “but Lord, they held us down and did us wrong”, or “but Lord, “they” and their ancestors are/were racist against me and/or someone I love (either in the past or present)”, or “I just can’t forgive “them” when I think of the past”…know that these excuses are NOT being accepted by our Lord because though the people or their ancestors indeed may be or may have been evil….so were YOU at one time when YOU were in YOUR sinful and death-appointed state until Jesus forgave YOU of every dirty, filthy, debaucherous, treacherous, slimy, or whatever deed that you did or were born into when He died a horrible, gruesome YET necessary death for YOU to live on a “tree” on a lonely hill named Calvary.

Had God acted like your “unforgiving” tail YOU would be doomed to eternal damnation YET instead of repaying you for evil He through His death on a cross paid a “forever” price for your life AND THIS IS HOW YOU REPAY HIM?

Lord Jesus, In Your Holy Name I come before You today to pray for those who claim You as Lord yet fail to walk in Your ways. I pray that somehow Holy Spirit that You open their blind eyes so that they can see that they are following satan down that “wide” highway to hell and eternal death if they do not repent of their unforgiveness as your word is very clear on this that we should “forgive, lest ye be forgiven”.

I pray that the yolk of racism be broken off of the white man, the black man, and whatever “man” is racist or has been harmed by racism and is now returning this evil for evil and that this generational curse that continues to be proliferated via our faux leaders…even within Your “Church” be broken and for ears to be opened so that the beautiful sound of your lovely voice can penetrate what has become the hardened hearts of your people who far too often act just like the citizens of THIS world INSTEAD of citizens of your eternal Kingdom.

In Jesus Name I pray,

Amen!

Ron “Big Black” and not giving a rip if “they” don’t like it because I’m obedient to you only Garrett
