We Greet you in Peace,
The prophecy of God will come to pass. The greed that has caused the destruction of an oppressed people will be/has been seen. There is Truth to Alpha and Omega. The first will see the last and the last will see the first.
The human response is now, however, it is written that the Creator will respond later.
Peace and Paradise,

THE WORLD SATAN AND THE BLACK CHURCH
Part 10: The Bible Warns: Satan
And The World
the name of God, Master of the universe, Ruler of the earth.
We greet you in the name of God which
is peace. We come realizing that our mission on earth is a lonely one because
there are many non-believers. However we will never be discouraged by the
attitude of the lost and the swine who seek to defile the Pearls of Good News.
We thank God for His presence and the
goodness of the ever present Holy Spirit. We continue to note that this is not
a difficult and complicated subject to understand. Man is not crazy. Although
he often acts ignorant and crazy, he usually is aware of what is right and what
is wrong. Let me also remind you that we believe that God has all power. Thus
we believe that God knows what is in our hearts, in our minds what we did and
what we will do. Thus you may come to fool the FreedomJournal
but you will never fool God.
The church has a responsibility to
render discipline in the church. Obvious and willful sin is against the laws of
God. Flagrant sin, for example homosexuals running the church will destroy the
church. These actions left unchecked can cause dissension, divisions and
paralyze the church. When willful sin occurs, the church must move with
compassion and love to correct this behavior.
However when these so-called
Christians refuse to repent, refuse to acknowledge their wrongdoing and
rationalize their actions, we are to remove ourselves from these people. This
is the kind of action that is destroying the Black church. Meanwhile, in the
midst of all of this sin and wrongdoing, we find the lust for money. Sadly most
of the most talked about and popular Black Preachers today base their
ministries on money and not God.
The scriptures give us a firm base
and foundation that reveals the reality of "the wages of sin and death."
Again it is not difficult to decide the difference between Godliness, Satan and
In the Gospel of St. John 17:14 we see that the world hates believers:
"I have given them thy word: and
the world hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of
This scripture clearly reveals that the world hates Christian values. Christians do not conform to the world by joining in their sin. Therefore, they are totally against the immorality of the world. The world follows Satan and Satan is the enemy of Jesus and his people. The so-called Black leaders, Civil Rights organizations, White racists, First Amendment organizations, ungodly Black religious leaders, so-called Black intellectuals, self-styled Black activists etc. that hate the FreedomJournal are of the world.
FOR THE RECORD WE ARE AT WAR WITH
EVIL SPIRITS. BUT IN THIS WAR THOSE THAT WALK IN THE SPIRIT OF GOD WILL WIN. WE
BEAR WITNESS TO THAT TRUTH, BECAUSE GOD IS TRUTH AND SATAN IS A LIAR.
As we turn to the New Testament book of Romans we see another powerful scripture. Romans 12:2:
"And be not conformed to this
world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove
what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God."
The FreedomJournal will never conform
to the world. The storm will never get so tragic to cause us to defect from the
Truth of God. WE SEE THE LIGHT IN THE STORM. The true Christian does not, will
not conform to the world. The behavior of the world is selfish and corrupts all
that partake in it. The Christian attitude must be obvious in our behavior.
However, this renewed spirit must be firmly rooted in our minds. The Holy
Spirit will help us remain unselfish and full of love as we deny and denounce
Our concluding scripture reference is found in the book of Revelation. Revelation 18: 9-10 reveals that if you are tied to the world's system you will lose everything.
9: "And the kings of the earth,
who have committed fornication and lived deliciously with her, shall bewail
her, and lament for her, when they shall see the smoke of her burnings,"
10: "Standing afar off for the
fear of her torment, saying, Alas, alas that great city Babylon, that mighty
city! For in one hour is thy judgment come."
The prophecy of the book of
Revelation is startling to some and a note to the wise for others. These verses
explain the folly of materialism in the world. Those who are involved with the
world's system will be destroyed. This prophecy reveals that those that worked
only for material rewards will have nothing when they die and all of their
possessions will be destroyed.
One cannot take any material possessions to eternal paradise. However, our faith, Christian character and our relationship with other Christians can be taken to paradise. These values are more important than money, power and pleasure. The Money Train and Wells Fargo will not follow you to the grave. However the Spirits will. What Spirit will go with you?
