While watching the prison/jail documentary TV show “60 Days In” one of the participants remarked at how real it had become as they went in and one door locked behind him, then another, and then another.

At each stage the doors locked behind him further taking him deeper and deeper into the prison resulting into him developing a feeling of deepening hopelessness.

As I watched i felt that God was impressing upon my soul to write this to someone who I feel like is going through a prison of sorts right now and who feels that they have gone further behind so many locked doors and so deep into their personal prison that they no matter how hard they try will never come out.

To whomever this is I want you to know that though you feel “locked in” that God has impressed upon my heart today to let you know that all you have to do is turn to Him for though He is NOT the one who imprisoned you HE is the ONLY One that holds all of the keys to every locked door and that you can be free if you only call on His Name!

Loose the fear, the shame, the pride, and that “I’m such a sorry person” attitude and realize that you have a Heavenly Inheritance in Jesus and all that YOU have to do is claim it in His Name!

He loves you!!!

Through a TV show He stopped this brother and had me write this love note to you to ensure that you know that He indeed has heard your prayers, feels your pain, knows your need, and has dealt with it all through His Son Jesus.

Call on Him and walk out of that prison that YOU are keeping yourself in and He just wanted me to remind you that some of the doors that you came into your prison by will remain locked for good as you don’t need to revisit everything behind each door to enter into the freedom that He has planned for you…simply as the song says “Walk on by” (by Dionne Warwick).

Rest in and accept the peace that He is giving you as He has already paid a steep price for you in allowing His Perfect Son Jesus to pay the perfect penalty for an imperfect person that didn’t even deserve it…that is just how He rolls!!

As much as I like the TV show “Black’ish” I was deeply irritated with the episode that I just watched concerning the lead character “Dre” (Actor Anthony Anderson) being diagnosed with type 2 diabetes and then going on to repeat the same lies that have been perpetuated for years of how to deal with it and that is “medicine”, continuation of consuming sugar alongside a low-fat diet, and exercise.

Also, the dishonesty continued as they categorized the disease as only “manageable” with no mention that it is by evidence curable when a well-formed “ketogenic” (low-carb, high fat, moderate protein, no sugar (including fruit)) diet is applied to the diabetic’s life thus continuing the misinformation that has been propagated to the “masses” by “big food”, “big pharma”, “big sugar”, and the people that they “buy off” (propigating an ever growing customer base via their complicit shenanigans) our politicians, governmental agencies, medical organizations who are supposed to be advocates for our well-being like the American Diabetes Association. The American Heart Association, the FDA/USDA (and many others) all the while “we the people” continue to get sicker and sicker as the lies grow older and older and this must stop!

A black person is more than three times likely to contract diabetes but it doesn’t have to be a death sentence for them or anyone else.

Stop believing the lies, educate yourself on how to heal your body with a ketogenic lifestyle of obtaining nourishment, learn about how Dr. Ansel Keys (heart doctor who made “fat” and cholesterol the blame for heart issues) manipulated data, lied to further their agendas, and aligned themselves with the very entities that have caused this diabetic crisis in our country that I listed above when they know that the sheer mountain of evidence proofed in study after study that it is NOT fat that is or ever was the culprit but IS AND STILL IS “CARBOHYDRATE” (something that the body does NOT need to survive since our body can on its own manufacture glucose without it) which includes ALL FORMS OF SUGAR AND GRAINS is the true enemy and they give you medicine to mitigate it INSTEAD of informing you that you can eat to a standard to reverse the disease…I SHOULD KNOW SINCE IVE DONE IT!

I urge you to start your education by looking up “The Big Fat Surprise” by Nina Teicholz (information linked here: https://ninateicholz.com/about/the-book/) to understand how you’ve been lied to and how you continue to be lied to all due to money and political influence.  

Also utilize the media that we often use for pure nonsense as a resource to educate yourself on the truth as people like Dr. Steve Phinney (a low carb pioneer), Dr. Eric Westman (known as the Diet Doctor linked here: https://www.dietdoctor.com/how-to-do-an-lchf-diet-dr-eric-westman), and so many others like Ivor Cummings, Professor Tim Noakes, etc., are speaking the truth and it’s slowly due to the advent of social media the truth is getting out (they can’t hide it from you anymore as long as you are not too lazy to look for it).

Listen to podcast who advocate the truth to you like “2 Keto Dudes (2ketodudes.com…also visit  Ketogenic forums”the “Ketovangelist”, and other leaders of the Ketogenic movement like Jimmy Moore of the “Living La Vida Low Carb” podcasts as well as their other social media platforms which also direct you to other resources that can help.

Lastly, know that as you start looking into a ketogenic way of life that the “old guard” (including your family) who has bought into the lies (as taught to the, via our educational and media systems…not their fault) will try to dissuade you from trying to heal yourself with the truth but ask yourself this…if THEY have always been right then why is diabetes and the disease/complications that are associated with it so rampant these days?   

Why is it that when the “SAD” (standard American diet…high in grains, sugars but low in fat) is introduced and implemented ANYWHERE in the world diabetes and heart disease most assuredly becomes rampant?  

Why is it when one is diagnosed with a disease that by its definition tells us that our body has a problem with glucose (sugar) do our doctors and nutritionists continue to prescribe diets with SUGAR still in it via carbohydrates and fruit (natural bags of sugar…your body doesn’t have to have it since it can manufacture all of the vitamins it needS WHEN nourished properly)? (You would say a doctor should lose his/her license if they prescribe alcohol to an alcoholic or drugs to a drug addict since it could worsen their condition or kill them but nary a person bays an eye when a doctor or nutritionist prescribes more sugar to a diabetic and then gives them a pill to counteract that sugar INSTEAD of telling them to simply leave the sugar alone.)

AND…why is it that we aren’t told that it has only been since the advent of the “food pyramid” which flipped the way we eat from fatty meats and natural fat foods, low carbohydrate, and little sugar to the opposite that diabetes and heart issues have exploded in this country and in the world in countries that the SAD diet (that acronym is so appropriate) has been implemented as a way of life.

Let’s stop the madness please!!!

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.

I know that I’m sort of a stickler for these things and it gets on some of you guy’s nerves BUT IT’S HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY NOT “happy 4th of July!!!

It’s the day that we celebrate our country’s independence from 🇬🇧 as declared by the Continental Congress (actually two days earlier but celebrated on the 4th) by the thirteen colonies some 241 years ago agin from the British Empire.

Lastly, I also get ticked at Happy Holidays versus Merry Christmas since the reason that we celebrate that time of year is to recognize the date set aside by our people (Christians) to celebrate the birth of Jesus (even though it’s probably not the actual date).  

So it’s Happy Independence Day today and MERRY CHRISTMAS then from here on out folks 😂 😂 😂. 

Be blessed and have a Jesus-filled day!

Our nation WAS intended to be “one nation under God” though many today foolishly try to imply otherwise due to their lack of knowledge of our history.  

Did the founding people always follow God as they should in every aspect? Well that answer would be a big, fat, NO…but that does not diminish the fact that the intent was for our nation to be under the guidance of the Judeo-Christian God and even the simple “deitists” among the Founders postulated to that with the caveat that the government not be able to force anyone to serve or not serve said God.

THAT was the “original intent” and NOT the falsehood that is bandied about today that “separation of church and state” means that God had to be left at our front doors and had no place in our government or that people that believed could not invoke His Holy Name if they were government servants or when introducing policies or legislation or as the basis of how they would govern (as long as they did not force the people to serve their God) and history proofs my position on this. 

Having said that and/or whether or not one is in agreeable with those truths or not is NOT my point today ((so I’m not debating it since it stands on proven, historical merit) but the point is that the scripture below teaches us that if “we the people” of this country want to prosper, be protected, etc., that God BETTER be the God of our nation.

‭‭Psalm‬ ‭33:10-22‬ ‭(MSG)‬: “GOD takes the wind out of Babel pretense, he shoots down the world’s power-schemes. GOD ’s plan for the world stands up, all his designs are made to last. Blessed is the country with GOD for God; blessed are the people he’s put in his will.

From high in the skies GOD looks around, he sees all Adam’s brood. From where he sits he overlooks all us earth-dwellers. He has shaped each person in turn; now he watches everything we do.

No king succeeds with a big army alone, no warrior wins by brute strength. Horsepower is not the answer; no one gets by on muscle alone.

Watch this: God’s eye is on those who respect him, the ones who are looking for his love. He’s ready to come to their rescue in bad times; in lean times he keeps body and soul together.

We’re depending on GOD; he’s everything we need. What’s more, our hearts brim with joy since we’ve taken for our own his holy name. Love us, GOD, with all you’ve got— that’s what we’re depending on.”

As I viewed the video in the link it took me back to traumatic incidents of racism NOT directed towards me by white folk but by many black people in my life who hypocritically cry racism everytime something happens yet fail to see the “log in” their “own eye” as Jesus teaches us in Matthew 7:3:  “And why worry about a speck in your friend’s eye when you have a log in your own?”

During a “Save our sons” events sponsored by some great friends and brothers and sisters in Christ (the beautiful Melvin and Toya Poplar) which was designed to get people differing faiths, races, police, the media, and anyone else who cared to discuss how to stop the unnecessary deaths within our community via dialogue with the police but during the event we also discussed racism.

There was much helpful dialogue to be discussed at the event and it was very helpful to our local community as we discussed topics that people are afraid to discuss due to political correctness or due to fear of being “shamed” by their respective communities in trying to understand our differences and discuss the long held and often unspoken grievances that we often have against each other so that we all as creations of the same God can make progress towards solutions to race issues instead of bloviating nonsensically with no “fruit” to be shown for the seeds being planted.

One of the points that I made (that I later was informed by the participants in the meeting) that made most everyone of the group think about was that my VERY first experience with racism DID NOT come from “white people” BUT FROM within my own black community when people within my family would deride me as being “too black”, or that my hair was too “nappy”, or that i was “just another dumb, black nigger that wasn’t going to amount to nothing”, or that that they would “disown” me if I married a “white girl” and many other hateful things.
Now I would be remiss if I didn’t also note that MOST  of these same people went to church every Sunday and also  MADE me go to church and learn that God says we should “love” all people like Jesus does and “forgive” others when wronged but would get mad it me and even kick my tail for trying to live it.

These “Christians” never lived that life that I even as a “dumb bigger who wasn’t going to ever amount to nothing” could read the Bible and  understand how to live because when it came to forgiving white people for the past wrongs that some of their race did to our people they WOULD’NT forgive them and talked about ALL white people (and you Mexicans ain’t off the hook…they did and STILL talk about y’all horribly also) like a proverbial “dog” (and I apologize to dogs everywhere for bringing them in this) and even to this day many of these “church attendees” (who are bereft of the Spirit of God that I am in relationship with) have not changed and are still ruining the spirit of black folk with their “dumb nigger” and “yo hair is just nappy and no good” comments.

It was this hypocrisy among other things that let me know that i didn’t need to go to church because as far as I was concerned “Christians” were hypocrites so I quit going to church and didn’t trust Christians for years until i gave my life to Jesus INSTEAD of people and HE taught me how wrong these people who knew Him by Name only were.
I digress…The real problem here as it relates to what I and this beautiful young lady is saying here is one of the things that I have said for years and that is that the black community is ALSO responsible for my, her, and so many others feeling like this because of how we are told NOT by racists how “ugly” black is but even worse by the community that claims to love us.

We “yap” on and on about “racism” from other groups towards black people but hide the fact that in the black community we are made fun of if our hair is “too natural” (or “nappy” to keep it 💯), or if you are light-skinned you were called “high-yella” and depending on your location being “high-yella” could be helpful or a detriment in the black community.

AND…don’t you dare be very dark as this beautiful young lady is because they (we..I am Big Black ya know) endure some of the most horrific comments that goes past simple humor (which I have no problem with by the way).

Think I’m joking…i challenge all black women to get them chemicals out of your hair today and go “natural” and see what happens!

To this day I marvel at how beautiful the natural hair of a black person is in its varying thickness and textures (I also marvel at He beauty of He hair of ALL of f God’s children so don’t “trip” with me here, LOL).

YET most of what I hear from my community is people (mostly women) who as they try to “get back to their roots (pun intended) are harassed mercilessly by the very community that claims to be on their side in everything “black”.

I noticed this hypocrisy as a child and continue to witness it now as an almost half a century old black man and I smh (shake my head) that this nonsense is still going on.

If someone wants to perm or straighten their hair…fine…they should get no “guff” over it and if someone wants to go natural there should similarly be nothing said either.

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.”
‭‭
