Choose wisely as how you choose is often where your focus will be for the duration.

This reminds me of another hard choice that many of us have to make daily and that is to love people who seemingly hate use or want to do us harm physically, mentally, or spiritually.

We have a choice to live by our own desires OR to live in obedience to Jesus and do what is sometimes very hard and that is love the unlovable.

I choose LOVE!!! (Although I do postulate that that there are many a day that I have to go off and pray so that I don’t slap the spirit out of someone!!! Don’t judge me!! 😂. )

I leave you with this:

Matthew 5:43-48: But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. “You have heard that it was said, ‘YOU SHALL LOVE YOUR NEIGHBOR and hate your enemy.’

The problem here (referring to the Democrat agenda for California in the attached link) for the “Christian” who continues to vote Democrat “no matter what” is that this mindset represents the national leadership of the Democrat party and they keep it under wraps because they know that if their voters knew the full extent of what they truly believe then they would be in trouble so they put on a “we are a friend to the Christian” poker face in public nationally while behind the scenes they do everything that they can to weaken Christianity.

What I’m saying here refers ONLY to what I a former Democrat know from personal experience and does NOT infer any allegiance with or emboldens a response that I view the Republican leadership much better.

What I’m saying is that this leadership to include President Obama whether you like it or not approves of this agenda to silence Christianity or any form of conservatism while pretending to be tolerant when the unbiased and sans partisan individual that is not blinded by party loyalty can plainly see the truth.

California has ALWAYS been the “bell cow” leading the Democrat party’s agenda and since that has not changed I fail to see how any Christian that confers allegiance to this part cannot understand that they are in affect when casting a ballot for this agenda that they are casting a ballot for their actual belief to practice their faith as guaranteed by the Constitution and it is THEM that are doing it to themselves because they blindly trust this leadership because they SAY that they are for minorities, etc.,

Again, before I get any comments that I have to delete inferring that I’m pushing a Republican agenda know that as a Christian Independent Constitutionalist that I view BOTH parties with great disdain as they BOTH have strayed far from living up to their sworn oath to “support and defend the Constitution” of this country.

Most of what I see coming from both parties these days are designed to work around the tenants of the Constitution so that these mostly career politicians can accrue and hold onto power while keeping the “masses” who are trying to live daily, ordinary lives unware of their wealth-grabbing, in-Constitutional ways.

I digress….

Lastly, it has been the Democrat agenda to remove any and everything “God” from any and everything that we do one little step at a time and again…I am what I refer to as an “ole skool Democrat” and though I wasn’t a Christian back then I was always baffled that so many of the policies that were presented by the National Party headquarters was so “anti-Christian” in nature and it was ONLY about 20 years later after I gave my life to Christ that my eyes were opened to the truth (not only Democrats but ALSO ALL politicians and political agendas but I castigate Democrats here because nationally they continue to lie about their agenda and fool their constituents. Repubs do too TBF).

President Trump is not keeping you from walking out your front door and helping your neighbor.

He’s not keeping you from feeding he homeless.

As far as I know he is not keeping you from visiting hospitals to encourage the sick, or help the widow, or be a mentor to the fatherless child.

You can still get out and help someone today and if you are a Christian you are blessed to be in a country that you have the ability to do your “real” job and that is to spread the message of the salvation and love of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

My message today is that though we have the right to discourse on politics whether the president is Trump, Bush, Obama, or whomever let’s not get so blinded by politics that we lose our spiritual eyes that open our hearts that moves our feet in God’s direction to help others and more importantly save souls for the Kingdom of God.

As a black man who has in the past been fierce in the defense of everything “black” I still work hard to help my historical people to advance beyond the “sins of others” against us in the past.

However, as I gave my life to Christ and started practicing forgiveness and shunned the desires of retribution and “repayment” for the wrongs against my race much like the wisdom that i saw in what Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. did when faced with violence and evil I noticed that overtime I began to love (much like Christ did me when I was His “enemy) the “enemy” that I was taught to hate growing up and gained the “peace of Christ Jesus” which opened my eyes to who my TRUE ENEMY was…satan the devil.

So in this black history month I leave you with one important thing that was the catalyst for me to write this this morning as I studied His Word.

I urge you Black man/Black Woman and for that matter ANY “man”/“woman” to stop focusing on what the proverbial “they” have done to you and “your people” (if you are a Christian your “race” is no longer black, white, or “other”) but instead focus on what HE has done for you and focus on what HE did when encountering His enemies (us) and that is to forgive them, love them (even if you have to learn to), and be willing to open your eyes to the realization that the enemy has had you tricked all along into believing that another race was your enemy (this goes for ANY race or culture who has been wronged by another) when it is NOT the people of the offense that was the enemy but the spirit of the anti-Christ…satan that is the enemy.

We are one people under Christ Jesus and there can be no division of your heart is truly bent towards Jesus (paraphrase of Galatians 3:28).

As I lay on my bed one day in tears not long after giving my life to Jesus wondering if I could do this “Christian” thing God for the first time spoke to and challenged me “son, you need to give up your black pride because you cannot fully worship and serve me until you do” I realized that I had a choice to either follow Jesus or to continue following my black pride and I think by the tenant of this writing we know which I chose.

As I view my life through the prism of time and look back on those early days in Christ Jesus and have gained wisdom from my walk with God i can plainly see why God made me choose between my black pride and Him.

You see my black pride in essence was a “god” that I placed above almost all else and thus it was an idol that often ruled my thoughts about others and affected how I relate and react to the “world”.

Once I cast that “god” aside for the love of Jesus the hate, the bitterness, the accusatory tone, disappeared and that void was filled up with the love of Jesus and I haven’t nor will I ever turn back.

This does not mean that I cast my desire to continue working to allow God to use me to helps uplift the black community who has been done so wrong in this country but what it does is allow me to help/uplift them as I help/uplift ALL of God’s children without the “black first” mentality which God has clearly shown me is anti-Christ and if one reads his/her Bible there is no other conclusion that can be made on the issue as only “pride” can make one come to a different one.

Be blessed and have a awesome time of learning during this Black History month.

If you are black how are you going to minister to the white person who God puts before you if you are so caught up with dealing with and seeing racism instead of seeing it via the prism of the Holy Spirit that it is NOT a white person but simply an evil person whose skin color is white who needs the blood of Jesus in their life?

The reverse is true also if you are white and you get so offended by “black first” groups that you start to feel that you cannot minister to a person of color because they have called you a racist when you know that you are not when you should be viewing them through the prism of the Holy Spirit as someone who has been so hurt by racism that it is blinding them to now return hate to you which is also a trick of the enemy.

You see the TRUE problem is NOT racism but the evil that perpetrates it…the devil!

He (the devil) loves how we make our personal points and leave God’s Word out of the equation because he knows that it fosters hopelessness and in the end anger to the point so that we “choose sides” INSTEAD of choosing Jesus.

THIS is what God has shown me that is happening today and what He is most sad and furious at (He just impressed this to me now as I sit in my car writing this as HE instructed me to) is that His people have become some of the worst actors in these dramas behaving like little devils instead of the children of God that they were made to be.

Even worse is when “leaders” in HIS church rant and rave sans His Word returning hate for hate instead of love for hate and all in His Name no less when He has authorized no such thing and never would.

Ensure that you are not attaching Jesus’ Holy Name to your earthly priority of YOUR brand of justice that is aligned with this worldview.

Further, ensure that you leave His Holy Name out of your “returning hate for hate” diatribes that you claim comes with His Name simply because you serve Him.

Read your Bible…even earthly, secular Kings who did not know Him “served” His will so servants are a dime a dozen…it’s obedience that He is after and when we align ourselves to these various movements simply because they “seem” righteous does NOT mean that He is with us because not everything that looks “good” is not “God”.

Stand up against evil yet ensure that when you do you allow yourself to do so being led by the Holy Spirit and definitely do not act like the devil and accuse an entire race for what some in that race have done as each man’s (woman and child also) sins are credited to them only and not someone else.  

A few scriptures to let sink in:
Ezekiel 18: 20: “The one who sins is the one who will die. The child will not share the guilt of the parent, nor will the parent share the guilt of the child. The righteousness of the righteous will be credited to them, and the wickedness of the wicked will be charged against them.

Jeremiah 31:30: “Instead, everyone will die for their own sin; whoever eats sour grapes–their own teeth will be set on edge.”

Galatians 6:4-5 “But let each one test his own work, and then his reason to boast will be in himself alone and not in his neighbor. For each will have to bear his own load.”

Romans 14:10, 12 “For we will all stand before the judgment seat of God. So then each of us will give an account of himself to God.”

James 4:17 “Therefore, to him who knows to do good and does not do it, to him it is sin.”

Romans 1:21-22 “because, although they knew God, they did not glorify Him as God, nor were thankful, but became futile in their thoughts, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Professing to be wise, they became fools.”

Lastly, let’s all remember what Galatians 3:28 teaches us: 28 There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.”
So we are either with Jesus all the way or with the race that has been assigned to us by man.

I don’t know about you but “as for me and my house we will serve the Lord”!

This awesome lecture (linked by Mrs. Angela Lee Duckworth) is nothing more than a worldly version of many of the of the New Testament and specific the author of many of its writings the Apostle Paul on how to “succeed”.

God impressed in my heart as I watched it that if we lived life with “grit” commitment to Him, His Word, His teachings, and led by His Holy Spirit then we would garner the means of “success”. Not as the world views it but if an eternal one.

I am not the smartest, I’m not the best looking, I’m not the wealthiest…I am not a lot of things but what I am most importantly is a child of God who does his best to keep his commitments and who does not quit AND who raised his kids to hold their commitments once they made them (my daughter will attest to that).  

If you signed up for something you followed through and you definitely weren’t allowed to quit ESPECIALLY if I put $ in it, 😂.

This taught my children to first be wise in choosing their commitments and if they did commit that they would have to follow through even to the point of loss and this was BEFORE we became Christians…even more so now.

Something that God has placed on my heart the past couple of days that He asked me to pose to those who “follow” Him.
Are you really obedient? Are you really obedient to His word?

My heart breaks when I see people due to political preferences, political party, or simply because they “hate” the current president who was elected YET cannot bring themselves to pray for him as God instructs us to.

And please don’t get “Holier than thou” since many who support President Trump (may God richly bless and protect him and his family) failed to do the same under President Obama (may God richly bless him and protect him and his family) and would not pray for him for the same and other reasons.

This does not mean that we have to walk in agreement with their policies, leadership styles, when they lie, when they commit evil (ALL “MEN” DO…yes, even Pres Obama and Pres Trump), or their policies.

But what it DOES mean…and if you want to know the truth AS GOD has placed on my heart the past couple of days (though I’m only posting this NOW…should’ve been yesterday) due to disobedience that there are many of you who profess Christ as Lord that during the past administrations and now during the current administration continue to go far past political discussions with your jokes about the authority that God has either placed or allowed to placed over us (some of you are laughing yet God is NOT amused).
He specifically brought me back to the “racial” and other jokes about President Obama and He has shown me the SAME with the “racial” and other jokes about President Trump that “Christians” have been publicly making then and now and even worse with a NASTY and “stinking in HIS nostrils” pride that has reached His throne that HIS people should grow OR be growing past…but they are not…and this is your warning (now you may understand my disobedience in putting off writing this one for a day or so).

If this is You (as it has been me in the past) GOD (not me) wants you to repent, ask for forgiveness, and begin to act like HIS children who are “called” by HIS Name instead of continuing to behave like the people who are trapped in this world.

Lastly, the scriptures below testify to what God has put in my heart in this writing and He SPECIFICALLY has a word for the one who scoffs at this post with the attitude “who does this n—– think he is?” AND the one who has committed this act against His word yet pridefully ask…”surely not me? Or…”Trump is awful, un-Godly, doesn’t support MY values or beliefs so it’s okay to make fun of him” or President Obama was/is is awful, un-Godly, doesn’t support MY values or beliefs so it’s okay to make fun of him”.

Let me assure you that God has told me that this “pride” is the kind that “kills” and it is NOT about accepting your President or not it is about OBEDIENCE IN AND TO HIM and if you CANNOT bring yourself to do as He says then WHO is truly YOUR god?…it surely cannot be Jesus.

Let that sink in, pray about it, and I bid you peace as NOW I have peace because I myself have done HIS bidding in posting this (I ask forgiveness Lord and will do better with your strength).

Scriptures:

1 Timothy 2:1-3(NKJV):

Pray for All Men

2 “Therefore I exhort first of all that supplications, prayers, intercessions, andgiving of thanks be made for all men, 2 for kings and all who are in authority, that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and reverence. 3 For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Savior,”

Proverbs‬ ‭21:1-4‬ (‭NKJV‬‬):
1 “The king’s heart is in the hand of the LORD, Like the rivers of water; He turns it wherever He wishes.
2 Every way of a man is right in his own eyes, But the LORD weighs the hearts. 
3 To do righteousness and justice Is more acceptable to the LORD than sacrifice. 
4 A haughty look, a proud heart, And the plowing of the wicked are sin.”
