Have You Ever Wondered

by Admin

Have you ever wondered why history sometimes has inaccurate documentation? It’s all due to the writer’s interpretation or their determination to avoid bias. Most answers are found within a question. For example, have you ever wondered why Joseph’s brothers (children of Israel), did not recognize him amongst the Egyptians when they came to Egypt to buy grain? Have you ever wondered why Pharoah’s daughters said regarding Moses, that “an Egyptian delivered us (Ex. 2)”? Have you ever wondered why the council asked the apostle Paul, a Benjamite, “aren’t you that Egyptian that stirred up a rebellion… (Acts 21)”? Paul said, “I am a Jew of Tarsus”. Have you ever wondered how one can mistake a Jew/Hebrew for an Egyptian? Have you ever wondered what color is garden dirt? Have you ever wondered?

65% of Black Men ages 18 – 28 are in jail

by Admin

Why are the young brothers in jail? As a man thinks in his heart, so is he. Most of them have the gifts, skills, knowledge and talents to change the world. They just don’t know who they are. If they knew their ancestry was royalty, they might begin to act like it. However, an identity theft has taken place and it hasn’t been restored. Slavery was genocide all by itself. Black parents (in general) aren’t educating their children anymore regarding their rich heritage. The young men grow up feeling inferior, unloved, not receiving any attention from their fathers and look to other methods for life satisfaction. Quick hustles, gangs, drug dealing or drug usage to medicate the void of self importance is often an easy alternative. “Blacks from a Biblical Perspective’ speaks to this very challenge, not as to who blacks are from a secular standpoint but biblical identification.

The Jesus That Got My Attention

by Admin

Transcript:

Yeah, I’d like to just say, when so many times when we’re raised up in the
things of God and the Jesus that they presented back in the days when I was
younger, they really made me, for one I’ve seen so many homosexuals in the
choir and leading choirs, and all the cool brothers, they were out, back in
my era, the black exploitation movies, they were Superfly and the Mac, and
so I had really no righteous influence coming up. They were gang bangers
and they were packing guns and they were Black Panthers and everything.
That’s who I was looking up to. And so that Jesus they presented and the
gospel at that time, it was too soft for me. It didn’t get my attention.
Church didn’t get my attention.

But then, after God worked in my life and got me saved and I began to read
for myself, and God didn’t send me to seminary or bible college or
anything, He taught me himself. I didn’t read any books for ten years. He
just taught me himself. I read nothing but the Bible for ten years, over
and over and over. And he began to reveal himself to me in a light nobody
else had shown Him to me before. I saw in the canon, where Jesus told Peter
and the brothers to go and buy some swords, and that spoke to me. Wow, the
brothers with Jesus were packing. And then, when they tried to accost Jesus
when he was going to Sumaria, Peter pulled out his sword and tried to cut
Malcolm’s head off, and he missed and ducked apparently and he cut his ear
off. That was a different kind of Jesus I saw. Then when Jesus went inside
the template and he made a whip out of cords and starting beating up
people, I thought they were playing bingo and selling raffle tickets,
having car washes, french fries, chicken dinners and barbecues and all that
inside the sanctuary. Jesus was beating folks up. The Bible said he was
beating the cows. He was beating the animals and driving them out of there
also.

And so I saw Jesus in another light, and I said Jesus was a bad brother.
And that’s what really got my attention. Jesus, when he used to preach to
us, we would have beat that Jesus up and took his lunch money. But Jesus
was a bad brother. I’m telling you, he was a tough dude. I could have ran
with him, and so that’s the one that got my attention. You know, a
righteous man walks in his integrity. You know, a righteous man tells the
truth. He doesn’t have to lie. He ain’t scared of nobody. That was Jesus.
That’s a righteous man. He loves his wife, loves his kids, takes care of
business. That’s a righteous man. That’s what this thing is all about.
That’s the Jesus I came to know.

Where Black Muslims Missed It

by Admin

Many black Muslims have thought or said that Christianity is the “white man’s” god. It is so unfortunate that those who aspire to that frame of reference have never studied the bible, let alone did research on genealogies and geographical locations. There is only one God and He is the father of our lord and savior Jesus the Christ. The descendants of Ham and Shem had much miscegenation between them throughout the early centuries. The descendants of Japheth migrated northward who became the European, earlier known as Gomer, Magog, Madai, Javan and even Gog who is listed as an opponent during the great tribulation. Some eighty percent of the characters in the canon of scripture are of African descent, including Jesus’ lineage.

God Spoke It In The Blood

by Admin

From garden dirt to Ham and Shem, Canaan, to the tower of Babel, to Nimrod the mighty hunter, history is largely “black”. From the dominance of  Egyptian technology to Ethiopia’s Queen Candace, before the Mayflower, slavery and today in the United States of America, there is one thing in common with all eras aforementioned, they’re of African descent. They reigned supreme over times and territories, they also suffered devastation and severe demise, even defeat. There is still a bible chapter that explains the reason, tenacity and determination of a people. Ezekiel chapter 16. In this chapter, the prophet speaks toward the origin, birth and nativity of these people. Through the hardships life had dealt, God spoke a word in their blood (v.6), He said, “live”! “Yes, I said to you in your blood, live”!

The Big Black Deception

by Admin

Deception is Satan’s most lethal weapon. To go even further, it’s his only weapon. Not only has the devil deceived the world into believing they can’t win in many instances, he also gets specific and direct in his targeting of people. The devil has used races, color, languages and nationalities to utilize his most lethal weapon. Revelation chapter 12 describes him as the one who deceives the whole world. This is very true in the area of Black Americans. He has deceived them into believing various lies and stereotypes regarding their personality, character, culture and physical traits. Yet, since there’s only one race, the human race, and none superior to another, why is there still racial and cultural oppression?
