Don’t Let Nothing Separate You

June 29, 2015

When I look at the Country and Charleston, South Carolina, we can clearly see evil taking place in a State flying the confederate flag. It appears the confederate flag was flying during hate crimes and carried as a supremacy symbol by the klan. In Charleston, one officer shoots and kills an unarmed person running away from confrontation. www.cnn.com/2015/04/09/us/south-carolina-police-shooting Apr 9, 2015.  Two months later, a young man executes nine church members at Bible Study. postandcourier.com/article Jun 17, 2015. If a flag is going to cause division, give birth to hate, evil or supremacy, it should be taken down. We should not be fighting or killing each other, but embracing one another in brotherly love. Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good.  Love one another with brotherly affection”. (Romans 12:9-10)

As Christ followers, are we lifting Jesus up? Have we turned from our wicked ways? Are we promoting love instead of hate? Are we sending up prayers? Are we placing God first in our lives? Are we following His footsteps? Are we listening to His voice? Are we loving and helping our neighbors? Are we following Biblical principles? Have we allowed Package Stores to be open on Sunday’s or are we keeping it Holy? Do we love God with our whole heart? Are we saying “it’s alright for men to marry men, women marrying women when God have said “It is wrong”? Let’s come together through love, prayer, unity and move forward. Don’t let another day passes while we harbor hate in our hearts. “Today you hear His voice, harden not your hearts”. (Hebrews 3:15) Tomorrow is not promised to anyone, so don’t let the sun go down upon your wrath.  Satan purpose is to kill, steal and destroy. Don’t let Satan still your joy or destroy your soul.  Repent, turn from your wicked ways and live. Ask God for forgiveness! Hate is a cancerous disease.

Time is running out and we don’t have time to play. We can see the Bible being fulfilled daily and the hand-writing on the walls. We, as we label ourselves as being Christ followers is allowing skin color and a rag with an “X” on it separate us. The Apostle Paul warn us; For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come,  nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord”. (Romans 8:38-39) We have to pull off any dead weights that are weighing us down “Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so    let us run with endurance the race that is set before us”. (Hebrews 12:1) If the confederate flag causes our brothers to stumble or sin, we need to remove the flag. “It is good not to eat meat or drink wine or do anything that causes your brother to stumble”. (Romans 14:21)

Prayer: Father, we stretch our hands to Thee, no other help we know. If You withdraw Yourself from us, whether shall we go? In this sinful world, we need Thee every hour and every minute of the day. We need You to stand by us and clothe us with Your protection. Bind this Country together in the unity of the bond of peace and love; that one person cannot fall without the other person. As You stand knocking at the door of people hearts, we ask that they will open the door and allow You to come on the inside and minister unto them. Father, we just can’t make it without You. We thank You for looking into the inter-most hearts and drawing out the prodigals, back-sliders and sinners. We forever give You the glory and praises, in the name of Jesus. Amen
