TIME LIKE THESE

Evil and hate has surrounded us like a blanket. In my opinion, I feel that COVID-19 is a wake-up call. God is still sending us signs of His displeasure with humans and our need to repent. If we do not heed the signs and repent, I believe COVID-19 will be like a headache compared to the next plague. Instead of being grateful to God for bringing us through this wave, we have hardened our hearts.

Within the last few months, the country has watched two African Americans males shot and choked to death on live videos. Why do we need trials when videos have produced all the guilty evidence needed to convict these criminals of murder? Watching these videos as an African American male have caused my heart to break into tiny pieces. The country has set laws in place to protect animals, certain fowls, marsh lands and reptiles. There are no laws to protect the African American male. While God people are silent during this pandemic of evil, the enemy and his demons is using this time wisely. No one is above God law and He has no respect of person.

We must not let our hearts be troubled, nor take our eyes and focus off God. Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity.  For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb. Trust in the LORD and do good.” The ‘good ole boys’ of this country probably will give these evildoers a free pass. God gives us His word, grace, mercy, and forgiveness. If we do not repent and turn, evildoers will be crying out “I can’t breathe in the Lake of Fire.” If we escape the consequence of our sins upon this earth, we still must stand before a Righteous God. God spared my life and gave me time to come to myself when I was doing evil. He is still the same merciful and forgiving God.

Do not waste this time and His patience by continuing doing evil. While we are still breathing, we need to use this time to “repent, turn and accept the Lord as our personal Savior”. I am a firm believer in prayer and the word of God. He will heal our land and forgive our sins. Come to Jesus and He will save you. In time like these, we need a Savior that will forgive our sins and stand with us to the end. I am asking all believers to unite in prayers for changes. Prayer changes things and out-comes. God can and will change hearts.

LIVES

Bullets are taking the lives of too many of our young men. When an African American use a bullet to kill another African American, that one bullet has caused two lives. In the African American communities, one is gone to the grave while the shooter is spending the remaining of their life in a prison cell. Every time, I hear of another life lost due to ignorance, evil and hate, another piece of my heart dies. God took the time to create us in His image, to love Him and our neighbors. Instead, we are doing the opposite. We are killing each other for greed or evil.

The Christians in this country should be in an uproar when police officers can continue to beat, choke, and kill unarmed African Americans without consequences. These actions indicate a need for repentance and reform of the Criminal Justice System. God people should be upset when Caucasians can ride around with shotguns, block the street, and kill an unarm person. With the video going forward, why did it take two months to arrest the McMichael’s? This is a pandemic and a threat to all African American families.

We do not need another politician but a revival. We need politicians and elected officials to start doing the jobs they were elected to do. This country needs Christians to get off the popularity train and become activated. Stand on the word of God, and stop worrying about being liked, offending someone, or being accepted. Remember, we are a chosen generation. Instead of being silent and supporting evil, we should be crying out in the wilderness to “Repent, for the Kingdom of God is near.” John the Baptist was beheaded for telling Herod “it’s not lawful to have your brother wife.” We cannot be a friend of the world and a friend of God. This day, we need to choose if we are going to serve God or Satan. We MUST repent, turn from our wicked ways, pray for God to forgive our sins, and heal the land.

A NEED TO REPENT

On this Mother Day, instead of sons visiting their mother’s, mothers are visiting their son’s graves. To many sons have been killed by evil people that despise people of a different race. If we (God people) are hiding behind the pulpit, titles, or the need to be accepted, we can expect this evil and diseases to continue upon this earth. There is a need for God people to a stand and cry out “Repent, for the Kingdom of God is at hand.” Satan is busy seeking out easy preys to do his work.

There is a need to repent when two white men Gregory and Travis McMichael’s to take the law in their hands by shooting and killing Ahmaud Arbery in Brunswick, Georgia for looking like a suspect. Since many people focus on color; would the prosecutors have been hesitant to prosecute two black men for shooting a white man? As a country, we have got to get past this ‘black and white.’ “Don’t let ANYTHING separate us from the love of Christ.” Jesus died for all and extend Salvation to all. God has no respect of person.

Many are saying “these men should not be charged for taking the life of Ahmaud Arbery.” When we say, “it’s alright for police officers and racists to shoot unarmed African Americans,” there is a need to repent. If we feel that “it’s alright to mistreat or discriminate against other races, there’s a need to repent.” If we feel that “it is alright to lock innocent children in cages, there’s a need to repent. This is the time when we need to go on bending knees and ask God to “forgive us of our sins, create in us a clean heart and renew a right spirit within us.” Not one of us is perfect. We all have sinned, and come short of the glory of God,

God is waiting on us to turn from our wicked ways. If we want our nation to be healed, we MUST tell the people “what thus say the Lord.” It is time to get back to the TRUTH, loving God, and our neighbors. Neighbors do not go around killing neighbors. It is time to stop being story tellers and preach Hell and the wages of sins. John was beheaded for speaking the truth. What are we afraid of losing for preaching and teaching the truth? If you really love people, feed them with the Truth and the Word of God.

HELP LORD

In the murder of Ahmaud Marquez Arbery, we cannot do evil and expect God to turn His head to our evil. When we do not know or refuse to accept God word, we become easy preys. Satan is using weak people to do his work. It is pure evil and hate to shoot a person in the back for no reason. If the video captured the shooting, why is these people still out? What more evidence is needed for a life sentence?

We can expect this plague of COVID-19 to linger upon the face of this earth unless we repent, turn, pray, and seek His face. If we do not learn from this plague, we can expect the next plague to be worse. Why is the FBI and GBI procrastinating in making any arrest? If the D.O.J. is not going to do their assigned job, shut it down and have no laws. (My opinion), I believe God patience is running thin with our sins of hate and evil. These men and many police officers have taken the law upon themselves to execute suspects. We MUST hold guilty parties accountable for their actions.

God sat and watched His Only Son to be nailed to a cross. He sacrificed His Only Son to save us. We cannot just do as we please without any consequences. God has no respect of person. Everyone will be required to stand and give in account of their sins.

RENEWING OUR RELATIONSHIPS

Our daily lives consume so much of our times. Everything about this quarantine is not negative. There are several positive aspects of being quarantine.

  1. To keep us and our families safe while the storm of this COVID-19 is passing over.
  2. To rebuild our families.
  3. To rebuild our relationship with God.

Inside the homes, there is peace, love and safety from the danger of the outside world. God is keeping us from things that could have been.

In Isaiah 26:20, God has spoken: Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be past.” In the past, we have spent so much time working, balancing families and children school activities. We see family members daily. Do we take time to listen, communicate or know what they are going through in their life? We rush home from work, rush our children to ball, band, cheerleader and gymnastic practices.

God have curtailed our chores and given us the time to spend with our families and Him. We should use this time to have family prayer, family Bible Study and to thank God for all His many blessings. Since many are not working, we do not have any excuses for being too tired or too busy to attend church services. Since we are on our electronic devices daily, we can use the same device to pull up virtual church services without getting dressed and leaving home.

Spend some “one on one” time with Jesus. Use this quiet time to study and engage in a meaningful relationship with God. Hearing about Jesus does not constitute a relationship. To know Him, we must pray, study and invite Him into our hearts. When we diligently seek Him, we will find Him. That I may know him, and the power of his resurrection, and the fellowship of his sufferings, being made conformable unto his death.” (Philippians 3:10)

HOW DID WE GET HERE????

Looking back, we ask the question “how did we get here’? We were sleeping while unqualified candidates stole and bought elections. We got here when unqualified relatives and friends of the selected officials was chosen to fill open positions. Once in office, they do not have a clue of what to do. Many of the selected officials are looking to Trump rather than God or the CDC for guidance.

Solomon was a wise Prophet. Solomon knew that he would have to make some wise decisions. Therefore, Solomon went in prayer and sought out God for wisdom. With this COVID-19 storm brewing, our leaders are still listening to Trump for guidance, while people are dying. It is not about doing what is the best for their state or the country; It is more about pleasing Trump.

People are still being hospitalized and dying from this virus. With the numbers rising, it should indicate there is still “danger in the land.” How can the economy be rebuilt without people? Do not sacrifice the lives of the citizens to please Trump. What intelligent political leader would use a National Guard Unit to render COVID-19 tests? Without being professionally trained, these soldiers can insert the nasal test tube too deeply into the nostril and cause severe damage to other organs.

NBC News reported: “Trump suggest ‘injection of disinfectant to beat the virus and clean the lungs.’ This recommendation suggest that we cannot follow guidance from everyone. How many non-thinkers or supporters will follow these recommendations?
