“And (God) hath made of one blood

all nations of men for to dwell

on all the face of the earth,

and hath determined the times before appointed,

and the bounds of their habitation”

Acts 17:26

.

In spite of the great success of the western nations in this area, things have become worse, as of late.

.

Yes, just when we thought that racism was beginning to subside in the western culture, this particular form of hatred is now rising up on a scale that we’ve never seen before!

.

The obsession with racism is currently rising to insane levels in some areas of society. Especially in today’s political arena, there is a mania concerning skin color that is absolutely consuming the mass media rhetoric like never before in history!

RACISM: A PANDEMIC CRISIS

And just look at the “ethnic cleansing” going on in other nations! It’s frightening, to say the least!

.

And of course, the Jews have always been hated and persecuted, even since the days of the patriarch, Isaac, right up to this present hour!

COVERT RACISTS

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Handshake_icon_GREEN-BLUE.svg

For the most part, citizens of the western cultures attempt to treat others equally, regardless of skin-tone.

.

But in spite of this vastly improved situation, there has arisen a movement to bring this form of senseless hatred into the forefront, now turning against people of various skin colors, be it against people who are yellow, red, black, brown or white.

.

Indeed, racism knows no bounds, as far as its targeted ethnic group.

.

Racism is an equal-opportunity hater!

“MADE OF ONE BLOOD: ALL NATIONS”

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Handshake_icon_GREEN-BLUE.svg

A well-known public figure has recently written a book on this subject of racism.

.

And his purpose is to reveal what the Bible says concerning the different races…“And (God) hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation” Acts 17:26

.

In this above verse from Acts, in which Paul is addressing a group of unbelievers, this author makes the case that we are all children of Noah, and even from Adam. We’re all relatives of each other: “made of one blood, all nations!”

.

This book also reveals that ALL humans have color, howbeit different amounts of the pigment, “melanin”. And those who are considered “white people” are also a shade of brown, although a much lighter shade than many others.

Ephesians 6:12 

.

But credit must be given to where credit is due! And truth-be-told, it is not humans who are causing this tidal wave of overwhelming hatred and prejudice in our land!

.

No, but rather, it is the unseen forces of the darkness of this world who are the true instigators of ever-increasing pandemic hatred of others, based upon skin-tone!

.

Yes, our true war is not against mere humans, but against Satan and his vast army of unseen evil-angels as they work through the unsaved citizens of his Satanic-Majesty’s kingdom, which this fallen world truly is!

SATAN, THE FATHER OF THOSE WHO HATE

.

And like never before, in these last days, Satan has stirred up the multitudes to fill them with rage against others merely because of different skin-tones!

.

And now we are seeing horrible racial hatred and even racial violence, both in this nation, as well as in many other nations.

.

And isn’t it amazing that those who decry racism are often the most racist of all!? They seem to view all matters of life through the prism of skin-tone!

THE BITTER ROOT OF SIN REMAINS

.

As already mentioned, the western nations have put forth tremendous effort to eradicate all slavery and prejudice. And since the middle of the last century, our western societies have put forth great efforts to repent of the sins of past generations, in abolishing racism.

.

But just like pulling weeds in one’s lawn, if the gardener does not get to the root of the problem, the weed will simply grow back, maybe two or three-fold worse!

.

And because mankind has pretty much turned its back on Jesus, the bitter root of sin still remains in the hearts of this world’s citizenry! And all our tireless efforts to eradicate evil, in whatever form it manifests itself, are absolutely futile, at best!

“That which is crooked cannot be made straight”

Ecclesiastes 1:15

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Dandelion_sun.jpg

Yes, the bitter root of sin remains in this unsaved world! And as long as we remain in rebellion against the ways of Heaven the problems we suffer will never go away!

.

In other words, the more hospitals we build, the sicker humanity gets. The more laws we enact, the more that lawlessness abounds. The more humanitarian programs we institute, the more humanitarian crises rise up.

.

The Bible says…“That which is crooked cannot be made straight: and that which is wanting cannot be numbered.” Ecclesiastes 1:15  As this verse so poetically declares, mankind is incapable of straightening out our crooked ways.

.

And we are powerless to supply the needs of the hearts and lives of humanity.

APOSTATE CHURCH-WORLD LIKEWISE HELPLESS

.

And even in the current-day church-world, Jesus has kept His promise…“So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spew thee out of My mouth.” Revelation 3:16.

.

Yes, because we have gone headlong after many of the earthly pleasures and proud pursuits of this decadent cornucopian super-society, we have been spewed out of Jesus’ mouth. Thus we have, “reap(ed) the whirlwind”, “neither have the inhabitants of the world fallen”. Hosea 8:7 & Isaiah 26:18

.

Judgment has begun “in the house of God”, and has moved beyond, into society at large! The Church has not fallen, neither has society!

.

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:F%C3%AAte_de_l%27Humanit%C3%A9_2012_-_009.jpg

Therefore, without a 100% devotion to Jesus, our best efforts, and even our lifting up hands in fervent prayers are less than worthless to help society, nor to even help our own apostate churches…“And when ye spread forth your hands (in prayer), I will hide Mine eyes from you…For let not that (double-minded) man think that he shall receive any thing of the Lord.” Isaiah 1:15 & James 1:6, 7  

.

Sadly our prosperity-driven church-world is very double-minded!

.

And tragically, as a result of our double-minded love for this world’s riches and pleasures, we have been spewed out, just as Jesus warned us!

GOOD NEWS! GOD’S LOVE IS COLORBLIND!

.

The Good News is, that even in this late hour, God is willing to pour out of His great love into the hearts of any individual who is sick and tired of all this current (and senseless) hatred, based upon skin-tone: he or she can call upon His name, and turn from all ungodliness! And filled with God’s wonderful love the redeemed one can have compassion for all children of God, regardless of skin color!

http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Handshake_icon_GREEN-BLUE.svg

.

No, God is no respecter of persons, regardless of a person’s skin color! And that same, godly brotherly love, for all God’s children, is available to each and every needy soul, young and old alike!

THE GLORIOUS 12-STAR CROWN CONSTELLATION

.

If you were to go out on a dark and starry night in the summer months, and lift up your head, you might just see this constellation group. Looking at this sketch, do you see this woman as she tries to take hold of that crown?

.

Well, this is a heavenly fulfillment of the above Bible verse (“And there appeared a great wonder (or “sign”) in Heaven; a woman…and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:” Revelation 12:1).

.

And this woman is known as the Revelation 12 Woman, and that crown is known as the Revelation 12 Crown.

.

You can see this constellation group in the summer months by looking in the western skies.
