HOW TO FINISH – THE ANSWER TO GANG VIOLENCE AND ANARCHY
MUSIC / INTRO
Last week many of us saw the video of a young teenager – an honor
student - who was murdered by other teenagers in Chicago. His name was
Derrion Albert, and I am dedicating this podcast / teaching to Derrion
and his family.
FIRST, let me say to you that I have the answer to gang violence. Let me give you a few examples:
Gene Browning was
a Black Muslim who hated whites. He was an all state football tackle.
On Saturdays Gene would go to the park with his Doberman Pinscher dog
and wait until a white person would come by with their dog. Then Gene
would turn his Doberman loose on them. Hungry for the truth, Gene
turned his life over to the REAL Jesus (not the Muslim Jesus) and
became a dynamic Christian leader working with university students.
Later he started ministry in government circles and prisons (is there
any difference in the two anymore) as a Bible teacher and as a
commodities broker in Washington, D.C. Gene and his wife, Shirley, gave
me a beautiful automobile as a gift of love (even though I'm white!). That's REAL redistributive wealth!
Tom Skinner grew
up in Harlem, and influenced by the Black Nationalists, a Black
supremacy group. He became leader of the Harlem Lords gang in New York
City and led the gang in more than fifteen large-scale gang fights, and
they never lost, even though there were only 130 in the gang. Tom was
preparing strategy one night for what was to be the largest gang fight
ever to take place in New York City. (Five gangs were uniting together
to fight a bunch of gangs from the other side of the city. If he
succeeded in leading the gang bangers to victory in this fight, he
would emerge as the leader of this alliance of Harlem gangs - the most
powerful teenage gang leader in the city.)
Tom heard a preacher unexpectedly while listening to a DJ on the radio;
as a result he decided to put Jesus' claims to a test. He was
confronted with the REVOLUTIONARY TRUTH and gave his life to the REAL
REVOLUTIONARY: Jesus (the Messiah of Israel). He quit the Harlem Lords
and later started evangelistic meetings in his own turf, Harlem, at
such places as the Apollo Theater. The Lord groomed Tom so that he had
opportunities to speak to - and influence - countless individuals,
groups, and organizations, ranging from members of Congress to the New
York Yankees to officials at IBM Corporation. He also served as
chaplain for the Washington Redskins. Some of Tom's publications are:
Black and Free (1968),
Words of Revolution (1970),
How Black is the Gospel (1970),
If Christ is the Answer, What are the Questions? (1974)
The Crips Gang
in Los Angeles used to have several of their members who came to my
Bible studies on Friday nights. Many were touched and changed by the
POWER of the Holy Spirit.
Clayton Joyner, an African-American, was my best friend. We used to preach together to the Black Panthers
and the Black Muslims and the gangs in downtown Los Angeles. Clayton
was black and I was white (still am). Blacks and Whites and Hispanics
and Asians finally got used to Clayton and I hugging each other and
praising God in the open air. When he would buy a new suit or sport
coat he would buy me one (I didn't have any money). Finally, years
later I was able to give him an automobile. That's REAL redistributive wealth!
Bob Selby was a friend of mine who was a gun runner and weapons stockpiler for the Weather Underground (close associates to the Obama Whitehouse).
Bob was reading literature while in jail that showed him that there was
a real Hell and that God loved us and sent His own Son, Messiah Yeshua,
as the sacrifice for our sins. Bob prayed and gave his life to Christ
in that jail. He then went to the Sheriff and took him to where this
cache of munitions and guns were stored. I later had the privilege to
speak in “standing room only” crowds for Bob telling young people about
the REAL revolutionary: Jesus, the Messiah of Israel.
These examples I have just given prove that there IS an answer to gang warfare and inner city violence … and anarchy.
let me say to you that the government will NOT do anything about it
except fund programs and allow photo-ops like the one last week in
Chicago with Attorney General Eric Holder (who wouldn't even go visit
ground zero; he was safely in the swank Four Seasons Hotel off Michigan
Avenue while meeting with “community leaders”). If Obama had enough
interest in his own home town as he did in flying to Copenhagen, he
would be a man and go talk to the gang bangers in Chicago … at least
reach out to them. He would do something about it. (After all, it's a
shorter flight to Chicago than Copenhagen … or does commercialism
outweigh needy children? What happened to PURE socialism?)
noticed Obama's pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright, wasn't active in reaching
out to the gang bangers … nor was Obama's associate (for helping the
oppressed) in his neighborhood, William Ayers. However, it is obvious
the President is only interested in programs that can advance his
socialist agenda. Like Marx and Engels, it appears that Obama is NOT
really interested in the people - even needy children in his hometown -
except as a tool of the collective for promoting his own socialist
Before you judge me for my statements, let me say that I love the President. I pray for him ad his wife, Michelle, and their daughters, Malia and Sasha, every day. (How often do you pray for them?) If you love someone you will speak the TRUTH.
While in prayer during the writing of this message, I had a vision. The
vision was of a dry, extremely parched, land. It was so parched that
there were deep cracks throughout the land where the dry ground had
separated due to lack of moisture. The deep cracks were consistently
spaced every foot (30 centimeters) or so apart, with smaller cracks
between them. It was truly a “dry barren land.” However, in the middle
of the land there was a fresh bright stalk of corn with ears ready to
open and leaves luxuriantly bright from perfect nourishment.
Then, from the stalk of corn there began to come forth not only its own
fruit (other ears of corn) but ALSO moisture which watered the dry
parched ground ... and then, to my amazement, other stalks of corn
began to rise up from the ground and to grow and flourish.
Then God spoke to me:
“This is a picture of the future of many people [who will listen to
this podcast]. Many are productive now ... but nothing compared to what
will be happening through them in the future.
On the other hand, many have given up; they once had a vision that I
gave them for their ministry. Some of them have seen others fulfilling
what they once prayed and fasted about doing, seeking my face for the
fulfillment of the same. But the enemy of mankind and of all
righteousness has discouraged them. He has spent years planning attacks
against them, even using those who at one time were their friends,
companions, or fellow ministers. Some of them have fallen due to sin,
disobedience, misunderstanding, and attacks due to jealousy of enemies;
and, some of the enemies have been My people.
But I am about to rearrange the lives of the faithful ones: the ones
who have persevered. They are going to be like the fresh bright stalks
of corn with ears ready to open and leaves luxuriantly bright from
perfect nourishment. I have seen their discouragement and
disappointment. I have seen the attacks of the enemy, even the attacks
of My people against them. And just as Joseph’s brothers meant it for
evil, I MEANT IT FOR GOOD THAT I MIGHT SAVE MANY PEOPLE spiritually,
mentally, and physically.
I am about to deliver many people - masses of people, hundreds of
millions of people - from among the nations, tribes, and families of
the earth. Tell My people there is hope, to seek my face again, and to
START NOW. I will use them GREATLY and in ways they have not expected.”
That is the vision and the message the Lord gave me. Now ... if that applies to you, where do you go from here?
1. START NOW
It doesn’t matter if your ministry is one of the five-fold gifts to the
church as apostle, prophet, evangelist, pastor, or teacher ... or
whether you have the ministry of helps ... or whether you are involved
in a labor of love that is hidden from the eyes of many.
You are to START NOW believing God for the anointing upon the work you
are doing to bring torrential rains of the Spirit upon mankind. And
PRAY that it is multiplied around the world. Get SERIOUS about
yourself, your ministry, and your influence!
“Behold, the former things are coming to pass, and NEW things do I declare: before they spring forth I will tell you of them.” [Isaiah 42:9]
The Hebrew word “chadash” for “new” here means exactly that: “new,
fresh, a new thing.” The God of Israel doesn’t deal in stale
commodities; He is the Creator. He is going to create NEW works through
you ... and He will get ALL the glory. You and everyone around you will
know it’s not you.
The Holy Spirit is God’s agent on Planet Earth to supply the
resurrection power of Messiah Yesua. START NOW asking God what you can
do to be a “nesting place” for the Holy Dove. If nothing comes to mind
right away, then start with humility!
If God is telling you to start now, that means He is going to help you and nobody can successfully withstand you.
“What shall we then say to these things? If God be for us, who can be against us?” [Romans 8:31]
The Greek word “kata” here for “against” denotes opposition,
distribution, or intensity. Many times the devil will distribute evil
agents to oppose you, with the goal of destroying you and thereby
nullifying the work of God through you. Sometimes these agents will
attack you from different sources and avenues simultaneously. Since the
NEW work which God will be doing through you is GREATER than anything
you have been involved with in the past, the opposition is
[super]naturally going to be greater.
This verse in Romans 8:31 is literally telling you in the original
language in which it was written that God regards YOU as the very
chiefest ... very highly ... and for YOUR SAKE He is FOR YOU!
If you’re experiencing weariness then cast it away in Jesus’ name. It
is no more than an attack of Satan: a lie of Satan to get you to
believe you can’t go on, that you can’t take on any NEW work(s). If you
are plagued with gossip as a result of past sins or disobedience then
turn to your Father in Heaven and remind yourself of His love and
forgiveness. Then remind the devil of his future. If you’re
experiencing doors shut to you by men and committees of men, rejoice.
Those shut doors are just direction for you into the GREAT OPEN DOORS
of ministry for God in these last days!
But since you KNOW that God has commanded you to START NOW and that He
is FOR YOU, then all you have to do is be willing to FIGHT the good
fight of faith. Stop global whimping! Stand up and fight. And, after
you have done all, STAND.
“Wherefore take unto you the whole armor of God that you may be able to
withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.” [Ephesians 6:13]
The Greek word “histaymee” here for “stand” means “to continue, covenant, establish, hold up.”
The only one that can cause you to lose is YOU!
Jesus said unto him, “If you can BELIEVE, all things are possible to him that believes.” [Mark 9:23]
Put some MIRACLES in your account. Use your faith to put supplies and
people (everything and everyone) you need “in trust” ... that is, in
“YOUR heavenly bank account” ahead of time. That’s what the word
“believe” in Mark 9:23 means [Greek “pisteuo”]. Have FAITH ...
establish some credit ahead of time ... by believing and receiving what
you need ahead of time. Be specific!
“Therefore I say unto you, What things soever you desire, when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.” [Mark 11:24]
The word “lambano” here for “receive” means “to take, to get hold of,
attain, obtain.” The SECRET is WHEN YOU PRAY! That’s the TIME to
RECEIVE! When you’re in your prayer closet that’s the TIME to receive
those BIG things from God ... some may come into play years later ...
but you receive in faith NOW ... WHEN you pray ... and you SHALL have
Later in the day, the devil will try to challenge your faith and tell
you “Those things you prayed for this morning are TOO BIG ... God isn’t
going to do that for YOU!” That’s when you want to say to the devil,
“Thank you, Mr. Liar, for reminding me that I RECEIVED those things in
my prayer time this morning; now I KNOW I have them ... Jesus, The
Truth, promised me.”
The only one who can cause you to win is YOU! God is already FOR YOU;
that is a given fact! You KNOW this ... now YOU are the one who must do
your part: START NOW ... SEEK HIS FACE ... FIGHT ... BELIEVE ... ACT!
4. DREAM BIG
Dream BIG ... it may be your last chance!
“Call unto me, and I will answer you, and show you great and mighty things, which you know not.” [Jeremiah 33:3]
My transliteration of Jeremiah 33:3 is as follows:
Call God out by His name, cry out [“qara”] to Him, pronounce to Him
your cause. He will pay attention to you with His eye and respond to
you [“hanah”] by announcing His answer. He will manifest to you boldly
[“nagad”] exceedingly great things [“gadol-gadol”] that are strong and
inaccessible [“batsar”] to you except by His miracles.
“Now unto Him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all
that we ask or think, according to the power that works in us ...” [Ephesians 3:20]
How BIG can you ask?
How BIG can you think?
Start challenging God. Quit insulting your Father. Give your Heavenly Father the opportunity to show you Who He is!
Litigate. Go to the Heavenly Court. Plead with God. Tell Him you are
wanting to be involved with His program to bless the nations: to reach
the world for Messiah Yeshua.
Tell Him you won’t take anything LESS than every nation, tribe, tongue and dialect for your Lord!
“Put me in remembrance: let us plead together. You make a declaration, so that you may be justified.” [Isaiah 43:26]
5. LIVE HOLY
Set yourself apart so that you can be used for “special” works for the Lord.
“If a man therefore purge himself from these [dishonorable practices],
he shall be a vessel unto honor, sanctified, and meet for the master’s
use, and prepared unto every good work.” [2 Timothy 2:21] “Sanctified”
[Greek: “hagiazo”] means purified or consecrated.
Resist the devil. Realize the enemy’s tactics. Remind yourself, “The
enemy is a liar and a loser!” Give glory to God by living holy. Through
holy living you accomplish the following:
You please God;
You establish a testimony;
You enable yourself to be used for “special” works.
For those of you who are "starting again" let me encourage you. You
will be stronger this time. You will have the "eye of the tiger." The
enemy will never take you captive again .. and he will never take you
alive! You've already been close to death at the hands of the enemy.
You will never let it happen again. You will be one of God's key
generals. You will serve Him out of love, appreciation, and
If God used Moses (who was a murderer and repented) and if God used
King David (who was both an adulterer and murderer who repented), then
God can use you! On the last day of his life Samson killed more of the
enemy Philistines that in the previous times of battle. Let God avenge
you for the times the enemy has wounded you!
“For the Lord God will help me, therefore shall I not be
confounded. Therefore have I set my face like a flint, and I know that
I shall not be ashamed. He is near that justifies me; who will contend
with me? Let us stand together: who is my adversary? Let him come near
to me. Behold, the Lord God will help me; who is he that shall condemn
me? Lo, they all shall wax old as a garment; the moth shall eat them
up.” [Isaiah 50:7-9]
“And even to your old age I am He; and even to grayish-white hair will
I carry you. I have made and I will bear; even I will carry, and I will
deliver you.” [Isaiah 46:4]
“Behold, all they that were incensed against you shall be ashamed and
confounded; they shall be as nothing. And they that strive with you
shall perish.” [Isaiah 41:11]
I trust this message will stir you to let God use YOU in bringing about
TRUE revolutionary change in society and in the world.
