When The God Who Neither Sleeps Nor Slumbers Awakens

 

Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has 

righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness 2 Corinthians 6:14

 

Greetings to the serendipitous reader and the righteous heavenly host.  Once again I find myself posting another article which I do not know if I will allow it to remain.  2020 thus far has certainly been eye opening for the masses particularly politically. Where they were once 20/40 or worse, some have been given correctional lenses restoring them to 20/20 vision. There have been a number of events in this year 2020 which begs some commentary upon and to which I am obliged to do said commentary.  Anyone who is alive today upon the earth has been a witness to two major events which have greatly affected the lives of many people across the globe.  It would seem that my last article collided with the agenda of certain actors in the human world causing aspects of it to manifest in a strange way.  I daresay, that article caused a great deal of agitation in the kingdom of darkness spiritually which caused a knee-jerk reaction naturally in the kingdom of men, most notably that of the Gentiles.

What two events do I speak of? That of the Corona virus otherwise known as Covid-19 and the George Floyd event.   Interestingly, the Covid-19 event was preceded by the death of a famous basketball player Kobe Bryant and eight other people including one of his daughters in a helicopter crash.  Shortly, after that we saw the world do something it had never done before and that was shut down it’s economy over what would appear to be a super flu virus originating out of Wuhan, China.  The U.S. lead the way in essentially destroying the lives economically of many people over what is termed a pandemic.  

Such a move would have been unheard of even just five years ago, but with this virus it became somewhat of an idol, something to be feared and held in high regard.  We were and are regaled with numbers daily of it’s cases not necessarily deaths because a great many people do recover from it and everyone now walks around looking like masked ninjas from the movie Mortal Combat. We also, have to stay 6 feet apart from people and not gather in huge numbers or at least we are advised, and for some mandated, depending upon the state of your residence.

A great many people are truly bewildered as to how this particular flu has pushed every other ailment to the side in terms of importance.  I for one don’t believe in coincidences and I am not particularly bewildered by it’s exaltation at least not from a spiritual standpoint.  I should mention that it wasn’t long before Black Americans, as we tend to do, became the focal point of Corona virus cases and deaths due to some of our co-morbidities.  Apparently, this Covid-19 is so resilient it is immune to weather changes unlike the other flu’s and pops back up despite masks and lock downs whenever it feels like it.  It makes me wonder whether there is something supernatural about it.  To my mind it comes from a dark place.

The second event which captivated the world’s attention was the death of George Floyd a Black man at the hands of a police officer in Minneapolis, all in the midst of covid.  This event saw the rise of Black Lives Matter protest and later rioting across the country in various places.  Businesses were destroyed and a group know as Antifa which consist of mostly White anarchist type joined or started the mayhem.  All through the summer, cities on the west coast east coast and wherever the death of a Black man occurred no matter the circumstance or before an investigation can be done, businesses that have nothing to do with what occurred needed to be looted and destroyed.  I wrote an article pertaining to Black Lives Matter a few years ago and essentially I maintained that the statement was too broad for what it is intended as clearly Black lives do not matter in a variety of circumstances.

If you are going to make that statement it should pertain to Black lives from the womb to the tomb and not just when a Black person is killed by the police no matter the situation which gave rise to the death.  Interestingly enough George Floyd in his own life it is said committed criminal acts against a Black woman and was allegedly thought to be engaged in criminality when he was arrested by the police.  It turns out the organization Black Lives Matter, the recipient of millions of dollars is not even for Black families in the traditional sense and may be even Marxist in its philosophy.  The whole debacle from what I can tell ended up being about politics, namely the support of the Democratic party.  

I am not sure why it is Black people are regarded so highly in their politics.  We are not a large part of the population, but for whatever reason, they roll our corpse out on a gurney every election year and feed off of us like political vampires.  Our blood must be quite tasty to someone out there.  Well, anyway the other idol that has been exalted alongside covid now is Black men and their death at the hands of police whether he is engaged in the act of criminality or not.  The trigger word is Black men and police and certain people go nuts like someone out of zombie movies and begin destroying property and people’s lives.

The Purposes and Objectives of God Are Never Achieved Via Demonic Means

There has never been a time whenever an objective needed to achieved regarding Israel, that God would use the worshippers of Baal, Ashtoreth, Dagon, the sorcerers of Babylon, Egypt, Assyria, Rome et al to achieve those objectives.  From Joseph to Moses to David to Daniel to Elijah to Yeshua etc, God always uses his people whom he called to achieve his purpose in the creation and kingdom of men.  What fellowship/accord has Christ with Belial? What agreement has the temple of God with idols? 2Corinthians 6: 15,16. What fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness and what communion has light with darkness (vs.14).  We can witness that God does not abide the presence of idols when the Philistines captured the ark of God after defeating Israel in a battle. I Samuel chapters 5 and 6 record the Philistines adventure with the ark.  

To summarize, the Philistines put the ark of God in the house of Dagon and set it by Dagon. When the people of Ashdod arose the next morning there was Dagon fallen on its face before the ark of the Lord.  They put Dagon back in it’s place and the next morning, there was Dagon again fallen before the ark with its head and palms of its hand broken off on the threshold.  What followed  were a series of plagues wherever the ark was so that the Philistines were compelled to get rid of it with gold items symbolizing the tumors which hit their bodies and rats which ravaged their fields.

This story clearly demonstrates that there was no fellowship with God and the idol of Dagon and no fellowship of righteousness with lawlessness.  The spirit that was unleashed with the George Floyd sacrifice like death was one of lawlessness.  It is one of chaos and destruction and one in which the Most High does not fellowship.  And if He does not fellowship with it, then like Dagon it must fall before his presence.  The spirit of God stands in contrast to lawlessness.  Where there are those who promote a spirit of chaos, His spirit is one of order.  Where there are spirits of destruction, His is one of building up.  Where there are spirits of confusion, His is one of clarity and a sound mind and where there are spirits of hate, His is one of love.  Where there is the spirit of fear, His is the spirit of power.  All of the wrong spirits in 2020 have been unleashed.  But let the Spirit of the Lord God on High prevail.

When God who neither sleeps nor slumber awakens

Whenever God is about achieving his purpose at certain moment in time, his enemies stand opposed to him.  I will use the story of Balaam in Numbers 22 to illustrate this point.  Israel is on course to occupy the land of Canaan.  They had defeated the Amorites and are now camped in the plains of Moab.  When Balak who is aware of what happened to the Amorites gets wind of it, he summons Balaam the son of Beor who is obviously a diviner/sorcerer of some sort to curse Israel.  When Balaam arose to meet with the princes of Moab on his donkey verse 22 states, “ Then God’s anger was aroused because he went and the Angel of the Lord took his stand in the way as an adversary against him. And he was riding on his donkey, and his two servants were with him.” “Now the donkey saw the Angel of the Lord standing in the way with His drawn sword in His hand and the donkey turned aside out of the way and went into the field….” ( vs. 23).  To summarize the rest of the story, Balaam tried three times to get his donkey going the way he wanted him to and each time the Angel of the Lord stood in the way.

Only when on the third time when Balaam’s eyes were opened did he understand the actions of the donkey who literally kept him from being killed.  I’m sure that donkey had some choice words for him that didn’t make it into the text.  Balaam now knew who was opposing him and had no choice no matter how Balak implored him otherwise, but to bless Israel and all before the high places of Baal.  So we see that just as with Dagon, the demons that occupied the high places of Baal had to take a seat when the Angel of The Lord awakened to someone standing in opposition to his agenda.  It must be assumed that the Angel of the Lord is top brass because no principalities or powers other angels were anywhere to be seen.

Today we are at that certain moment in time again where God is about achieving his purpose.  His enemies have their own agenda.  They serve their own gods, but certainly as in times past he awakens and will stand in the way as an adversary with sword drawn against his opposition. In retrospect considering my last article, who I really need are some apostle Pauls, Johns and Peter.  

To conclude, It is my sincere hope that people are safe from violence and covid.  To all who have perished I offer my prayers and condolences for their families and friends.

To God always

the Glory

A Look Into the Magic of Gentile Christianity and The Willful Amnesia and Participation Of That Magic By Black American Christians et al. Part two

The other reason Black American Christians are blinded is due to their own willful amnesia and abdication of their keeping charge of God’s holy sanctuary by letting foreigners in this case gentiles do it for them per Ezekiel 44:6-8.  What do I mean by willful amnesia?  When I begin the examination of who Black Americans are identity wise and the reason for our predicament in this country, I noticed in my own experience whether outside or in the church, Black American negro people never discuss our history or status in this country or the world even.  We talk a lot about the society at large but we never really talk about us as a collective.  And when I thought it about it, it was highly weird that in church itself we never asked the Most High God to explain our people’s many issues.   

Whatever the difficulties we faced and face in life we just historically kept pressing through them.  We cover the pain with emotional releases in church but never asked him who is the Alpha and Omega the reason for the pain in the first place.  I imagine after all the running and drama since the fall of Jerusalem in 70ad that landing upon the shores of America kind of caused a capitulation to the difficulty of escaping a call gone awry.  Kenneth M. Stampp echoes this sentiment in his book The Peculiar Institution: Slavery in the Ante-Bellum South. He writes, “Before the Civil War, American Negroes developed no cultural nationalism, no conscious pride, in African ways. At most they unconsiciously preserved some of their old culture when it had a direct relevance to their new lives, or they fused it with things taken from the whites.  If anything, most ante-bellum slaves showed a desire to forget their African past and to embrace as much of white civilization as they could.”  As Stampp indicates, it wasn’t just that Whites stripped Negroes of their culture and history, but Negroes themselves did not want to remember their African past, they did not want to remember who they were.  

Perhaps, my ancestors felt that they did such a horrible job being the people of God that maybe they would let the Gentiles have it, they would in essence trade places by becoming a pauper whilst formerly they were a prince as in Mark Twain’s The Prince and The Pauper.  They would capitulate to the hand of God and go to sleep thereby letting the gentiles this time non-purposely run the sanctuary of God.  Also, I think by becoming a pauper Black Americans at least for a little bit were free from the responsibility of being a priesthood nation. In some measure forgetting their past and identity enabled them to live as they may have wanted. They now had the chance to be like other nations.  The Problem is of course other nations will never treat them like well other nations.  This has been demonstrated throughout the course of American history. The issue of reparations and the fact that other aggrieved nations by the US received them readily demonstrates this most glaringly.
  
I am sure Yeshua would have much preferred that Israel had come to her senses and maintained her position and had not traded their being a prince to being a pauper.  As the Apostle Paul expresses,  “ I say then, have they stumbled that they should fall? Certainly not! But through their fall, to provoke them to jealousy, salvation has come to the Gentiles. Now if their fall is riches for the world, and their failure riches for the Gentiles, how much more their fullness! (Romans 11:11).  Indeed with Israelite scriptures in tow, the Gentiles became quite rich literally and spiritually.  

Yeshua, I am once again convinced, would not have preferred that the church fall into the hands of the Gentiles but his overriding concern for justice and his wrath would let it be so.  But the good news is that he does not hide his face forever.  However, the question for Black American Christians today is do they want to be released from the spell?  Do they want to be released from their willful amnesia and participation in the magic of Gentile Christianity.  I know some have been but many are still under spiritual anesthesia.  It reminds me of a movie I saw recently called Dark Crystal The age of Resistance.  In this little fantasy film of muppet like characters, there is this planet inhabited by little beings called Gelflings whose overlords are buzzard like beings from another planet called Skeksis.  

These beings were put in charge of the power source of the planet a huge crystal by a priest or sage like being called Aughra who they offered a chance to fall into a deep sleep and travel the Galaxy.  While Aughra is off touring the galaxy, the Skeksis have been abusing the Crystal draining of its power in effort to live eternally.  This abuse of the planet is causing it to die and when a Gelfing discover that the Skeksis are using the crystal to drain the Gelfling of their life in order to extend their own lives he rallies some select Gelflings to fight back.  When Aughra wakes up from her long sleep to discover what the Skeksis have done, she has to find a way to get her power back and help the Gelfling in their quest to save their world.  

There is definitely a familiar spirit that operates in the movie industry.  Aughra and the Gelfling are analogous to true Israel.  Aughra is Ezekiel 44.  She gave up guardianshp of the crystal to foreigners, beings who had no love for the crystal or the Gelfling and who were happy to take tithes from Gelfling tribes whether they could afford it or not. It is just as the Israelite priest once did in handing over their duties of tending to God’s sanctuary to the uncircumcised in flesh and heart foreigners.  It is this abdication of their calling and position which accounts for the actions of Botham Jean’s brother.  It is strange that when Black Christians are wronged by heathen White gentiles, they are quick to express forgiveness. Instead of such actions lending credibility to  the Christian faith for the outsider looking in, it diminishes it.  

It gives instead credence to the Christian gentile spell that a casual on looker can see that Black Christians are under.  Matthew18:15-35 deals with the issue of forgiveness.  Without going into the whole section, what is important to note is that the question of forgiveness had to do with one’s brother in the faith not one’s enemy who have no love for you.  Peter asked how often shall he forgive his brother who sinned against him not some outside gentile who hates him.  Also, if a person has wronged you and truly wants your forgiveness and to make restitution they need to obviously ask you first, the same as we first ask of God to forgive our trespasses.  


It is just not realistic to forgive someone quickly who has never acknowledged their wrongdoing or even asked for forgiveness particularly when a life of a love one is taken.  If anything it makes the person appear shallow and the scriptures devoid of reality of the human condition and psyche.  But if negro Christians operated in their fulness and gave up their role of playing the pauper, of being the prodigal son wallowing in the pig pen, they would correct the gentile Christian perspective on forgiveness and many other scriptures.  

As I wrote in The Principle Of The Second: The Age To Come only when Israel is put at the center of their scriptures does the bible prophecy make sense.  How I long for the scales to drop from my brethren eyes.  They are in some measure sitting ducks due to this blindness. I wish I had known when I fellowshipped with them in my early years what I know now.  How much easier I think it would have been to convey this age defining information to them due to proximity alone.  But sometimes with God the journey is never quite straightforward or easy to figure out.  There is also the question of numbers and timing.  

But I can understand why it is easier to stay under the spell.  This journey of identity and our position in the world is a painful one.  It was so painful the ancestors didn’t want to remember anymore and they passed that willful lack of remembrance on  to their descendants.  Well, dear people this article is very long and the subject is a complicated one to wrestle with,  so I will end with this-For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits the revealing of the sons of God.” Romans 8:19.  Why does the creation await the revealing of the sons of God? It is simply because it would like to be free from its own bondage.  

The revealing of the sons of God is the end of the age and a sabbath rest for a weary creation.  And lastly this depends on true Israel shedding her pauper position and resuming her princely role for as Paul writes,For I speak to you Gentiles; inasmuch as I am an apostle to the Gentiles, I magnify my ministry, if by any means I may provoke to jealousy those who are my flesh and save some of them. For if their being cast away is the reconciling of the world, what will their acceptance be but life from the dead. (Romans11:13-15) The resurrection is literally waiting on the merging of natural negro Israel and spiritual negro Israel into one complete identity.  Once again I believe I can get this done with minimal 300 of such individuals in which case I will then write my magnum opus and put us in the third act and conclusion of the time/age of the gentiles.  I would still like a chariot out of here though.  Hey, It never hurts to keep asking.

To God Always, 

The Glory
