Why do the media and politicians use the “race” tag to stir up more angst? The answer―again: “It's the money, stupid!” Politicians get votes … the media get advertising clicks. But in this podcast teaching we will look “beyond the veil” and discover a more subtle force―a demonic agent―with an assignment direct from the pit of Hell.
It is my personal belief that this assignment from Satan is threefold:
1. To escalate conflict among people groups in society; and,
2. To produce deterioration in YOUR human spirit and psyche, thereby weakening you from within and reducing your productivity, health and success.
3. To exacerbate tension among entities (including intranational and municipal) as part of the preparation for the coming world leader: the False Messiah.
We will examine the sinews of “microaggression” which is the soft underbelly of socialization and political correctness―facilitating weakness―and define a more accurate and perfect solution.
MIRACLES AND MICROAGGRESSION
Have you ever asked a person, “So, what are you … really?”
I asked a relative to check out a property near them for a friend of mine. My friend just wanted to know the layout and condition of the property. My relative said, “Blacks have migrated there.” I told my relative, “Don't plan on going to Heaven because LOTS of Blacks have migrated there.”
Having been a pastor of an all Black church years ago (I was the only White person there), I find such statements really denigrating. “Microagression” is generally defined as “Communication of hostile, derogatory, or negative racial slights and insults toward people of color.” However, I would include insults against white people, also. Microagression can sometimes be communicated in a subtle manner so that the person initiating the conversation may not realize the effect―and may actually be unaware of any hurt effected.
I have found that when the LORD gives you a great love or compassion for a certain segment of society, the enemy of your soul (Satan) will always find some member of that group to hurt you or offend you in some way. It is simply an attempt to get you to stop helping―serving―that segment of society. We have to be mature enough to realize the source of the attack … to see behind the veil.
Physiological color blindness is an abnormal condition characterized by the inability to clearly distinguish different colors of the spectrum. It's interesting that Scripture identifies Messiah Yeshua (Jesus) as the Son of God and as the Light of the World. The light spectrum is the band of colors produced when sunlight is passed through a prism―and from which mixing of the colors can produce any color.
AN AFRICAN SAVED A PROPHET'S LIFE
“Now when Ebedmelech the Ethiopian, one of the eunuchs which was in the king's house, heard that they had put Jeremiah in the dungeon; the king then sitting in the gate of Benjamin;
Ebedmelech went forth out of the king's house, and spoke to the king saying,
'My lord the king, these men have done evil in all that they have done to Jeremiah the prophet, whom they have cast into the dungeon; and he is like to die for hunger in the place where he is: for there is no more bread in the city.'
Then the king commanded Ebedmelech the Ethiopian, saying, 'Take from here thirty men with you, and take up Jeremiah the prophet out of the dungeon, before he dies.'
So Ebedmelech took the men with him, and went into the house of the king under the treasury, and took from there old cast clouts and old rotten rags, and let them down by cords into the dungeon to Jeremiah.
And Ebedmelech the Ethiopian said unto Jeremiah, 'Put now these old cast clouts and rotten rags under your armpits under the cords.' And Jeremiah did so.
So they drew up Jeremiah with cords, and took him up out of the dungeon: and Jeremiah remained in the court of the prison.” (Ezekiel 38:7-13)
AN AFRICAN SAVED THIS PROPHET'S LIFE
When I was just about to throw in the towel―thinking my life was about over and nobody knowing about it―an African that I had ordained into the ministry contacted me from overseas and told me: “God wants you to fast for three days, eating only after 7 PM. I will fast for and with you, also. Ask God for ONE THING and tell me but do NOT tell anyone else.” At the end of three days―on the start of the fourth day I was perfectly healed.
A HISPANIC MAN SAVED MY LIFE
I was in the hospital after being stabbed by two men. A nurse was stationed at my bedside 24 hours while I had four tubes running in and out of my body. After coming to consciousness I asked God to send someone to lay hands on me and pray for me. A Hispanic man who did NOT know me―but had heard about me being stabbed―came into the 2500 room hospital and into my room on the ninth floor. He told me, “God raised me from the dead one time and He has sent me to pray for you that you may be healed.” He laid his hands on my head and prayed, “Lord Jesus, heal my brother.” A short while later he walked out of the room and left. I walked out of that hospital healed a few days later. (I could have left earlier but doctors wanted to observe me to make sure of the MIRACLE.) I have tried to reach Hispanics with the Good News since then.
ASIANS HAVE HELPED ME
I was leaving seminary during my graduate studies as I did NOT have the money to pay my tuition. On my last walk through I stopped at my mail box in the lobby to check the mail. In it was a check from Chinese Christians that covered my expenses. That was years ago but I have tried to reach China with the Good News since then. Between five to seven percent of my website hits come from China.
JEWISH PEOPLE HAVE HELPED ME
I have been helped in so many ways by Jewish People … with money, food, friendship, counsel, support … and in ministry. Not only in Israel but also in the USA. I have been offered great opportunities by Jewish People, not only from Israel but from other places. I have profited much from personal contact and relationships with Jews. And this does NOT even take into consideration what I have received from the Jewish Scriptures … and a Jewish Messiah: my LORD.
IT IS IMPOSSIBLE THAT OFFENSE WILL NOT COME
I have been blessed by all different races … and colors of people. I have also been offended by all different races … and colors of people. It's time to grow up. If we claim to be God's People, we need to SEE others as God sees them. We need to be color blind … or, conversely, to see the beauty of color: the beauty of the spectrum which God has created. We know scientifically that white is a balance of color, whereas black is the absence of light (and hence of color). However, God has created them all for His enjoyment. So … WHY do we not at times enjoy them? The answer: because of SIN.
Satan is the chief hater and the father of racism. The devil is the the divider and attempts to use people AND demons to build walls between mankind. We need to be spiritually discerning―to recognize the attacks of the enemy―and to build bridges of fellowship. This is only possible through the Holy Spirit. And … it is easy to accomplish IF we CHOOSE to do so. The KEY here is CHOICE. Your choice influences your brain and your future … and the future of successive generations: in your family line as well as humankind.
Jesus taught us:
“It is impossible but that offenses will come: but woe unto him, through whom they come!” (Luke 17:1)
Rabbi Shaul declared to the Athenians at Mars Hill:
“And [God] has made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and has determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation;
IT'S A MATTER OF CHOICE
So―it is easy to determine that it all depends on CHOICE―and whether we want to PLEASE our Heavenly Father. Many years ago I started publishing the Good News in several languages so that I, by God's grace, could reach “all nations of men” that dwell upon the earth. God's family is beautiful … and when we realize that it is OUR family we begin to see its beauty. The world would surely be dull if everything and everyone were the same.
CHALLENGE FOR YOU
Pray … make that CHOICE today: that you will be an instrument of love through whom people of every color can SEE Jesus!
GOD MAY GIVE YOU IDEAS
In my latest book, Real Miracles for Normal People, I share how God used—and uses―IDEAS to reach many cultures and languages with the Good News. Read it and learn from it. God may give YOU the next great IDEA which will reach the whole world for Messiah Jesus.
Below I have provided four resources to help you accomplish that next IDEA God gives YOU. The world and its people―from every race―are waiting on YOU.
My friend, more important than the economy—even more important than your health—is this: If you were to die right now, do you know for sure that you would go to Heaven? If not, pray this prayer:
“God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, if Yeshua (Jesus) is really my Messiah, please reveal Him to me and I will serve You the rest of my life. Please forgive my sins. Help me to live for you the rest of my time on earth, and take me to Heaven when I die. Amen.”
If you would like to work with us in creative exploits for the LORD,
A TAX DEDUCTIBLE RECEIPT WILL BE SENT TO YOU
