I Have Reached the Turning Point

July 22, 2013

Some people have said “I was too vocal”. I have always been a vocal and outspoken person. It’s too late for me to change who I am.
I am not trying to push anyone away but to tell people what “thus said the Lord”. One person asked “if I was trying to be another Dr. King”. There were only one Dr. King and I am trying to be the person God created me to be.
Christians, we can no longer hide behind the four walls, in our homes while a war is going on outside and hope everything goes away. We are in a war to save our young people while the enemy is attacking families. If our young people are not being shot down by one another or officers, they are thrown into prison. One way or another, the enemy is destroying families.
We as Christians, has to take back our faith, stand firm on God Word and His promises, teach His Words, put prayers back into homes-regardless of what society say and to look out for one another. “Yes, we are our brother keeper”. It was and is God that brought us this far. It was not because we spoke so elegance, lived in the right community, drove the right automobile, obtained the right degree, served on the Deacon, Usher Board or Pastor the right church. We could not have attained any these goals without God being with you and blessing you.
Treyvon death CAN NOT become another statistic. “Enough is enough”. We can’t wait on the justice system to fight for us. We have to get off our hands and fight for what we believe in. We sit behind the four walls of our homes or church buildings while placing our future and safety into the justice department. We have to turn off Facebook, our favorite soap opera, get out and vote, make our voices heard or even march against “injustice”. If you sit now, the next time could be your son, husband, brother or grand-son. What then? There are more Zimmerman’s, officers and jurors (in the world) like the six in Sanford that believe a dog are more valuable than a black person. We have got to send a message: “It’s not alright to shoot and kill an unarmed black person”. Evil not only reside in Sanford, it is nationwide. “The enemy is traveling up and down throughout the world seeking easy preys to prey upon”.
As a community, city or country, we have to watch for one another, speak out against injustice or wrong-doings and wicked powers in high places. God did not give us a Spirit of fear. We can no longer ride the back of the bus when God, Dr. King and Mrs. Rosa Parks have already made all seats available. We cannot accept “second class” status while God have delivered us from a horrible pit, picked us up and planted our feet on a solid ground. Last Sunday, my family and I had gone out for brunch. We had been seated, placed our orders and waited for twenty minutes. Fifteen minutes after placing our orders, three Caucasians came in and was seated next to us. The waiter brought their orders first and told us “you all orders are coming up”. I asked to speak to the manager. I explained to him what had just happened and I will not be treated like a second class customer”. He apologized and tried to make it right, but the harm had already been inflicted.
God have given me the Spirit of boldness. I was called by God and not man; for this reason, I shall obey God rather than man. I don’t apologize for speaking what “thus said the Lord”. Everyone will reap what they sowed and God have no respect of person. “For the wages of sin is death, but the gift of God is eternal life. I was not placed on this earth to please man but to please God. Time is running out and we can’t “sugar-coat” what thus said the Lord. Some pastors are not speaking out on the evil taking place in our Country.
I can no longer bury my head in the sand, turn my head or pretend everything is alright. I don’t fear the man that can kill the body, but rather, I fear the One that can kill the body and destroy the soul. If God is for me, man can’t hurt me. If men hate me, they don’t have a Heaven or hell to put me in. What then shall I fear?
When Jesus was crucified, His disciples went and hid themselves because of bodily harm or death. 19 Then the same day at evening, being the first day of the week, when the doors were shut where the disciples were assembled for fear of the Jews, came Jesus and stood in the midst, and saith unto them, Peace be unto you. (John 20:19)
I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.
The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep. I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine. (John 10:11-14)
Be not afraid of their faces: for I am with thee to deliver thee, saith the LORD. (Jeremiah 1:8)
Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath. (Ephesians 4:26)
Ah sinful nation, a people laden with iniquity, a seed of evildoers, children that are corrupters: they have forsaken the LORD, they have provoked the Holy One of Israel unto anger, they are gone away backward. (Isaiah 1:4)
And when ye spread forth your hands, I will hide mine eyes from you: yea, when ye make many prayers, I will not hear: your hands are full of blood. (Isaiah 1:15)
Why is there so much hate, evil and killing? God created every man in His image. We cannot please God nor enter eternal life in this state, some changes MUST take place. Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool. (Isaiah 1:18)
Dr. King was chosen to fight a war on injustice. He was a “soldier of the Lord” that lost his life in battle. Through his service, we have seen some changes but many changes must take place. Dr. King did not use guns or violence. He stood on the Word of God and carried the Bible as his sword, and love served as his ammunition.
Let love be without dissimulation. Abhor that which is evil; cleave to that which is good. (Romans 12:9)
As a nation, let us love one another unconditionally, pray, support and encourage one another, bring prayer and teaching back into the homes, lay down the guns and take up the Words of God, turn from violence and seek the Lord, get back on our knees, pray without ceasing, turn from our wicked ways and seek the Kingdom of Heaven.
