When Solving for Your Future

 

New Math

The anointing of GOD is greater than the person it works through. Don’t miss your blessing by quantifying a person without considering the power of “Y”.  The equation above illustrates that a person to the power of YAHWEH has infinite possibilities. If you haven’t learned to factor in the power of Y , you will get the wrong solution. I completed a training recently on how to recognize and correct unconscious bias. I really enjoyed it. There has been a lot of studies done to validate the reality of biases operating below people’s consciousness, which can impair their ability to process evident facts. One way to put this is that people will often see what they expect to see. If they expect to see nothing that is what they will see, even if something is present. Likewise, if they expect to see something, they will see it even if nothing is there. If you do not believe someone is capable of something, you could be placing yourself in a place unconsciously that will cause you to miss the manifestation of that which you doubt. When Christ went to Nazareth, not many people were healed or set free, because the people of His country only saw Him as a carpenter’s son. The explanation Yeshua gave is seen in Matthew 13:57,

“And they were offended in him. But Jesus said unto them, A prophet is not without honour, save in his own country, and in his own house.”

People in your own family, as well as those who have known you for many years can often miss your transformation; the work of the Holy Spirit transforming you from glory to glory. Friends and family can miss benefitting from the supernatural call on your life as the anointing works through you. What is worst, you can fall short of your calling in life due to doubting yourself, and what GOD can do through you.  Matthew 19:26 basically says that for a man to transform himself is impossible, but with GOD all things are possible.

Several years back, I can remember feeling very challenged as I reflected on my life, searching for the substance to carry me to callings beyond the horizon.  Being raised by a second-generation single, black, teenage mother, comes with a lot of challenges in America. We are talking government assistance, pay check to pay check, eviction notice apartment living. That is to say nothing of the missing affirmations a young man needs from his father as he faces the responsibilities of manhood. Kudos to my mom for her courage and determination. It is good to know where you have come from as long as you don’t allow it to dictate your future. I love the scripture that proclaims that now that you are born again “BEHOLD, ALL THINGS HAVE BECOME NEW!” (The emphasis is all mine). Here is the scripture from 1st Corinthians 5:17, “Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.”

Don’t allow the narrative of your life to be set in the vision of the blind; those who do not yet see by faith. “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Hebrew 11:1. As you calculate the next steps in your life, remember the equation of faith and factor in the power of “Y”.

The Power of Your True Heritage

9781641114097-Cover-DustJacket.indd

My first book has been released to the world. I know that I was called to write this book, and the hand of the Lord is in it. It’s entitled, “True Heritage: Recovering From Spiritual Identity Theft”. Many fading traditions, around the family, have been based on biblical principles in order to lay a foundation for understanding eternal truths about our relationship to GOD the Father. The traditions are fading due to an epidemic of confusion, masquerading as liberty, progress and positivity, infecting the general public, as well as the church community. The result has been a disconnect with GOD, in whose image we are all made. Many of the churches in our community today offer an understanding of GOD based on modern societal views, when the church should be correcting society based on GOD’s eternal views. To have a clear understanding of who we are meant to be, we must first have a clear view of the GOD in whose image we are made. This book has been manifested to assist with the restoration of the family of GOD, and the brightness of His true glory. The book can be purchased at many online outlets and stores around the world. I am including a link to Amazon and Barnes and Noble.

What Does Real Freedom Look Like?

Fake Freedom

In the Black Community, there is sometimes teasing about one’s worthiness to carry the Black Card. The meaning has strayed from its true roots in the struggle for Civil Rights.  One of the chants often heard by protesters during Civil Rights rallies was “A PEOPLE…UNITED…WILL NEVER BE DEFEATED!!” To be a proud Black Card carrying American meant that you were identified with the struggle, and no matter what it cost you individually, you were going to stand in solidarity with the persecuted Black race, until they all overcame. The Black folk that broke ranks to avoid persecution or took a bribe to be silenced were considered sell outs, so their Black Cards were revoked. By bribe, I’m not talking about a few hundred dollars, people often had to choose between a job to feed their families and risking their lives or taking a stand against injustices in the community. Nowadays, references of a Black Card are thrown around by the children and grandchildren of those early activist in relation to mere cultural taboos like; if you didn’t watch the NAACP awards, if you are unfamiliar with some trending Black icon, or if you don’t fit into any of the branded stereotypes like having great rhythm, being athletic, or understanding the latest slang terms. Truth is, if the Black Card was still enforced by the old standard, millions would be considered “sell outs” today because the efforts used to break up the solidarity in the Black Community has been enormously successful.

I have done volunteer work at a transition home for men recovering from chronic homelessness and addiction for over a decade. I have also served as Chairman of the organization, and over the time I have worked there, the predominant supporters have been White churches and the White community. Why is that significant…Because over that same period and from its beginning, Black men have made up 99% of the clients receiving service. Where is the support from the Black community? I told a group of black men about the organization once after a round of golf and invited them to come down to the organization to offer some support and encouragement. Their response, to summarize, “they got themselves into that mess and they need to get themselves out.” Also, “if we made it through with hard work, so can they.” The lack of empathy and understanding shown by these men was somewhat disappointing. I say only somewhat because I understand the origin of the disconnect. These men have souls wounded by the shame and disgrace of four centuries of enslavement, followed by decades of systematic oppression. Their wounded souls have not received the proper care or attention because of a lack of self-awareness in the light of truth. The cigars, expensive liquor, and constant posturing is nothing more than the jangling chains of the enslaved proclaiming, “See, I’m a man too!”. Proverbs 3:31 says, “Envy thou not the oppressor, and choose none of his ways.” I say they are still enslaved because they have a mindset shaped by their oppressor. You are owned by whomever manufactures your treasure. The reason those golfers can’t see the value in those homeless men is because they lack the treasures from which the golfers themselves draw their own value.

One of the signs that you are truly free is that you have learned to see your innate value as a being created in the image of GOD without any relation to the trappings of this present world system. This will also enable you to see the value in others regardless of their social status or current circumstances. You will even find that you have a burden for those who are suffering as a result of not knowing their true value. Christ stated that His main interest was to liberate the captives, and to give sight to the blind, and to mend the broken hearted. These are the world’s castaways. One of my oldest friends is a master mechanic. He owns and operates his own repair shop. Once he saw an old rusted out car in a ladie’s yard and offered to buy it. She sold it to him for a meager price. After he finished restoring this car that the previous owner had pretty much discarded, and which hundreds of people had driven by every day without interest, it was published in a calendar for winning first place in a car show. When he showed the restored car to the former owner, she was so astonished that she actually cried. This is the same response I have seen repeatedly from family members of the graduates that complete the program from the outreach ministry I mentioned earlier. We have to develop the vision to see the potential in every human, based on the power of GOD. When your heart is closed off from the true light of GOD, it is easier to see the value in an old car that’s been neglected, than a human that’s been broken by this world.

Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s dream was inspired by the word of GOD. We will all be free at last when we learn to see and value one another as one human family. When we learn to stand against oppression and injustice with everyone carrying a human card, then things will really change. The race card will then be much less significant. This will only happen when our minds are renewed by the word of GOD. This is what the scripture means when it says in John 8:36, “Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.”

A Message for American Church Folk

Church Fans

Recently, one of my brother’s in Christ posted a message on Facebook regarding the ongoing segregation witnessed in churches across America. He cited the 1960s quote by Dr. King, “the most segregated hour in this nation is Sunday at 11:00 am.” This whole topic of the church being segregated is due to social engineering, which many are still controlled by. The devil’s way of keeping control of the masses is through keeping them divided. He knows there is power in agreement and unity. His strategy is working. The question is, why is this social engineering controlling people who confess to love and serve Christ. It is because it is reinforced from the pulpits. Many church leaders are presenting an American version of the gospel, one that is politically correct and culturally compliant. Any minister that calls America a Christian nation has not seen nor heard Christ.

Many white Americans have the perspective of America being of Christian origin, a godly country. This view of America has a polarizing effect on all those who have been terrorized and dehumanized by her from the beginning. Many white people have not been able to grasp how looking over America’s destruction of people of color is the same as saying their lives do not matter. If a person were to tell you that someone they understood was guilty of killing many of your relatives in the past and is still killing and hurting them today is really a good person, how would you feel about that person. Every time someone says America just needs to get back to its founding values, that is what people of color face. I had a white brother tell me in a bible study that the “Black Lives Matter” movement should be “All Lives Matter” …he doesn’t get it. I had a white sister tell me that for her, America lost its innocents and Camelot fell, when Kennedy was assassinated…she was unconscious.

Let’s look at some of the issues with my people of color. You were once forbidden to read in America and now that you can, many of you still won’t. Many black people haven’t cultivated the habit of studying. I mention this one because it is the biggest problem in the Black community. Please stop talking about what your pastor said, PLEASE read for yourself what thus saith the spirit of GOD. We have some deep wounds in the Black community that constantly get poked, but we must stop turning to sex, drugs, food, and entertainment to medicate, but instead look to the Comforter, the Holy Spirit of GOD. Lastly, though the culture of white supremacy is formidable, greater is He that is within us than he that is in the world. We must get free from the spirit of the ni–er, and it has nothing to do with your address or bank account, whether you believe yourself to be wealthy or poor. Remember, Joseph was in prison and then a servant in the Pharaoh’ house, but GOD used him to deliver Egypt and the children of Israel. If you haven’t read about it, you should go find it in the bible.

What has all this to do with church segregation? People need their minds renewed. You can’t truly see who you are until you can see the GOD in who’s image you were made. You can’t see who I am until you understand who you are. Once you recognize yourself as a child in the family of GOD, you will begin to recognize your kinfolk. It will then be much easier to see yourself in other Hue-mans. This will enable you to love others as you love yourself.

People are in church for too many different reasons. Ministers, if you are serving in church to make people’s lives better, you have missed it. Parishioner, if you are going to church to make your life better, you have missed it. Those that seek GOD must do so because He alone is LIFE.

Pro-life Candidates Exploit Unconscious Bias in The Religious

pro life

There is no marriage between American political views and the teachings of Christ. There is on the other a hand a relationship between American politics and mainstream American Christian view. They are lovers and have the same values. The mainstream American church is adulterated with propaganda that keeps people bound to the world in an unconscious stupor. This decreases opposition to the evil powers of this world that practice the doctrine of the Nicolaitanes as spoken of in Revelations chapter 2. The doctrine of conquering people to exploit them for gain. YAHWEH hates this and will reveal His wrath against it. This is the implication of James 4:4 (NKJV), “Adulterers and adulteresses! Do you not know that friendship with the world is enmity with God? Whoever therefore wants to be a friend of the world makes himself an enemy of God.” Those governing the world’s economy make up this world system.

If you consider yourself a Christian, and you find this offensive, your affections are in the wrong place. Know also that you are on path to being in the rebellious horde that stands with the Anti-Christ, with fist raised toward heaven, at YESHUA’s triumphant return. This may sound extreme at first, but when you recall how the religious leaders persecuted Christ, even desiring to stone Him, then it doesn’t seem that far fetched.

Now let us look at what the Church gets from the world in this adulterous love affair. The unfaithful church is kept in sensual comfort, with fine linen of purple and scarlet, and filled with whatever she lusteth for. This also can be found in the book of Revelations chapter 2 and 5. These things I am speaking of aren’t hidden in the bible, they are just not being taught in mainstream American churches. Instead, people are being lulled asleep with doctrines of compliance and being ensnared through their carnal nature of fear and lust.

Over the past couple of days, I have had conversations with a few confessing Christians who identify as “pro-lifers”. They vow they could never vote for a presidential candidate that supports a woman’s right to choose an abortion. Yet these same Christians often endorse candidates who are instrumental in establishing social environments of despair, which plays a role in many women considering an abortion in the first place. These same “pro-life” Christians, blindly support candidates that do not hesitate to send US military troops abroad to kill for the lust of those in power. Not one American war has been fought purely for humane interest. How can I say this?

“For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.” (1 John 2:16 KJV)

“From whence come wars and fightings among you? come they not hence, even of your lusts that war in your members?” (James 4:1 KJV)

Major General Smedley Butler, one of the most awarded marines in history is quoted here: “I served in all commissioned ranks from second lieutenant to Major General. And during that period I spent most of my time being a high-class muscle man for Big Business, for Wall Street and for the bankers. In short, I was a racketeer for capitalism. I suspected I was just part of the racket all the time. Now I am sure of it.”

Today in America, 1 child out of every 5 lives below the poverty line. Many county schools open during summer break just to feed families.

Due to social injustice, America leads the world in incarcerating humans. The US represents 5% of the world’s population however they account for 22% of the world’s imprisoned.

America leads the world in selling and exporting arms to the rest of the world. I saw a report in Newsweek that said in the last 5 years the US exported arms to 98 countries.

We know that God’s eye is even on the sparrow, but where is the eye of mainstream American Christians? What lives matter to them? When they weigh presidential candidates, do they look at the impact of their policies on all people, domestic and abroad. Is the American Christian also concerned about babies that live in EL Salvador, Haiti, Africa, and the middle east? Is this reflected in the candidates they choose?

We know Christ ransomed His life for all people. As His followers, we should work to rid ourselves of all social, racial, and ethnic biases. Christianity has been greatly damaged by people associating themselves with Christ, while not really embracing His teaching or walking in His spirit. Growing in GOD equals growing in your capacity to love others. As we learn of GOD, we can’t help but see how deficient we are of His holiness, and we are broken by His great mercy and enduring love. We are encouraged by the good news of the gospel that through submission to the Word of GOD, we can receive a new nature that is righteous, pure, and holy, and that pleases GOD. To be able to love your neighbor as yourself, through the power of GOD, is to be the best citizen any country could hope for.

Evoking Chavvah: A true feminist movement

Katniss 2katniss3Katniss 4

Blessings to all my daughters of “Eve” out there. I pray that your precious hearts are strengthened by the love of The Father. I would like to share some strength and life with you. Where purpose is unknown, abuse is inevitable. A lot of the neglect and abuse of women, the daughters of Eve, stem from ignorance or denial of her identity. The name “Eve” is in the bible for the first woman in place of the Hebrew name “Chavvah”. The original name “Chavvah” means Life-Giver. Adam, the first man acknowledged the woman was a “Life-Giver”. The bible says that the Spirit quickens, which means that the Spirit gives life. There is a correlation between the image of the Holy Spirit and how the Almighty created woman. The scripture in Genesis 1:27 reads, “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” In this scripture, mankind is the him, the masculine and the feminine as what he consisted of. Together, the masculine and the feminine makes up the image of GOD. If you exalt one and oppress the other, you obscure the image of GOD that is meant to be seen. To obscure means to darken or shroud from visibility. Who would want to hide the full image of GOD from the world?…Satan. Insight into why the Dragon wants to lock away the feminine heart in a tower of seclusion.

The oppression and abuse of women is an attempt of Satan to hinder the full glory of GOD from being manifest in the Earth. As a result of Satan’s assault on mankind’s feminine essence, woman have begun to suppress their own femininity. As a survival technique, the oppressed will often make adaptations to avoid persecution. We see this in the self-hate manifest in some African-Americans and Native-Americans stemming from the genocide they faced from the founding of the USA. In the end, what has the biggest influence on us is not what our enemies to do us, but how we choose to respond. Christ gives us the freedom to choose by exposing the works of the enemy and showing us the True path. John 8:31-33 says, “Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, if ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

I was born male, but I had to learn from my Creator what it meant to be a man and then submit to my calling and purpose. I had to renounce everything that I had learned or been labelled that conflicted with who GOD said I was. Yeshua teaches in Matthew 16:25 saying, “For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it.” Woman has been under attack and under-appreciated for centuries, as a result, many women have renounced their femininity instead of renouncing the lies that she was merely an object for sexual enjoyment, or that she was less relevant in her feminine glory as an image bearer of GOD. For the glory of GOD and the good of mankind, every woman needs to embrace her feminine glory. Be fully the “Life-Giver” you were created to be. Look at the workings of the Holy Spirit that you exemplify: the nurturer, the encourager, she who empowers, the teacher, the illuminator and the one that disperses love of the Father.  As with most gifts of GOD, the world has proven itself to be unworthy of them but be strong and be courageously “Chavvah”.
