And God said, "Let there be light. And there was light. Gen 1:3
All endeavors and modes of thoughts have a beginning and that is no less true for the subject of this blog as a whole. However, my thoughts about the curious case of African-Americans which I expressed in an earlier same named article and as I discussed in that article begin many years ago. My principle question at that time and which was revived thanks no less than to a popular television show dubbed Scandal, was “Why were Black Americans enslaved in this country and then subsequently seemingly beset by an endless array of obstacles, oppressions and once given civil rights in this country careened quickly down the hill of dysfunctional culture decline.” I was not looking for a surface answer, but one found in the mind of God.
I had for a about a decade or so been dealing with prophetic issues and the place of Israel which I first articulated in a writing I called The Principle of The Second (The Age To Come) and which can be found on Amazon kindle. It was a time when my thoughts were not in the direction of Black Americans as I never thought of them in relation to prophetic events. However, one day a couple of years ago I was in a conversation with my mother about Margaret Sanger and Planned Parenthood. I was asking her some questions since she led a pro-life organization and she of course recounted how after slavery Blacks became the target of the Eugenics movement and subsequently the primary target for abortions in the U.S. It then occurred to me there had been only two other times biblically in the history of men that a specific group of people were targeted for extermination and that was during the time of the Israelites in Egypt and during the time of the birth of Jesus. During the time of the Israelites bondage in Egypt, I related in Prophetic Speaking Part 1 how in the midst of the Pharaoh’s call for the killing of Hebrew boy babies that Moses a prophetically significant figure would be born. It goes without saying that Jesus was the major prophetically significant figure of Israel’s history.
I had for sometime already thought of the U.S. as a type of Egypt and with an Egyptian obelisk in Washington D.C. and pyramid on the U.S currency such a thought is additionally validated, but it was in relation to the present occupants of Israel. It was not until I had done some writing on the book of Revelation that I realized Egypt was symbolic for the foremost nation at the time-a nation of widespread influence. The U.S. fits this meaning perfectly as of today; however, it is not the Egypt of Revelation. As I begin to ponder Black Americans more, in another conversation with my mother I told her, “God never became exercised over pagan nations.” If Black Americans were the descendants of some off brand pagan tribes somewhere off the west coast of Africa, what on earth did these tribes do to earn the wrath of God and cause them to lose all knowledge of self and to be perpetually at odds with themselves and others going around and around the" it’s racism “ mountain.
I begin to look earnestly into the question of whether Black Americans could be the Israel of ultimate dispersal. I read books on the subject and website writings, but I was not wholly convinced because of the time and distance between the destruction of Jerusalem in 70 Ad. and the movement of people over so vast amount of places. Besides in the wake of trans-Atlantic slave trade or the Black diaspora you had Black people everywhere; thus how would one determine who the pertinent Israel would be? To boot, according to some historians some Blacks were native to the Americas before the slave trade. Also, I begin to again consider all the people who come to the U.S. legally and illegally and how they seem to easily prosper here not that they don’t work hard, but they do so without the unresolved issue of slavery, lack of identity and collective community cohesion that afflict Black Americans.
Perhaps, the most seemingly innocuous aspect that made me consider the peculiar state of Black Americans is music. I was having a conversation with a friend one day and somehow the subject of schools and kids came up and then conspiracies. I told him I definitely had one conspiracy that I believed in and that was the deliberate destruction of Black music. I said, “How do you destroy Black music?” “If Black people could not do anything else in this country we were great musicians. Who does that?” I am going to address the issue of music in another article, but suffice it to say, it added to my sense that Black Americans were still targets for destruction. I use as an example, Jeff Majors musical interpretation of the 23 Psalm of David. I was looking one day for a musical version of the song thinking I would run across a good “Jewish version” and came across his. When I finished listening to that song, I thought “We must have been in the tribe of Judah.” It was the best version I had ever heard. Oh, the irony.
After my readings , a lot of thinking, inquiry of God and one little detail about the history of Israel in exile, I concluded that as Nathan the prophet confirmed for David that he was man of his parable about one man who had much taking from one man with little in regards to his adultery with Bathsheba, Black Americans are the “man” of the ultimate dispersal of Israel and upon them ( Or least those of them who are really Israel) lies the answer and the power to the conclude the age and the fulfill the time of the gentiles.
