In fourteen hundred ninety two, Columbus sailed the ocean blue; that’s what I was taught in school. This person who was noted as a great explorer from Europe was said to have discovered America or so I was told by history teachers. Unfortunately, they left out many important facts about this man they revered.
Was he a hero or villain? the people he found on the land his feet trod received him as a friend. It was not long before their blood covered his hands, the land was covered in red from the blood the native people shed. Those who survived were turned into slaves then sent to another land. This is how the colonization of America began.
One group of men who thought they were more entitled then other men, forced their will on those who were weaker; they demonstrated brutality in-stealing fear to conquer and enslave. This nation’s history is steeped in hate and fear, it’s greatness achieved from the sweat and tears of those forced to serve her. Just like the Israelite’s in Egypt, the enslaved peoples of other lands built the foundation on which this nation stands.
Time moved on nothing stayed the same, now voices cry in the streets; make America great again. Many feel they are better than others that inhabit the land and wish to once again control the weaker man. The sins of the past have reared their ugly head, reminding us that racism is not dead. The enemy changed his strategy lulling us to sleep, making us believe we had accomplished between all men true peace.
No one can read the heart, unless the darkness is washed away by sacrificial blood; the enemy still has control of what you do and say. War is again raging, the enemy is attacking with full force; he has removed the restraints and the blood of the innocent now flows. Those who should protect have become a tool of his bidding, children in school fall prey to his attacks and places of worship are not exempt.
Evil is spreading across our land like the blue ocean kisses the sandy shore. I challenge those who know the truth to lift your banner high, stop just silently standing by; speak the message of Jesus Christ who lives inside. Don’t be afraid to answer the call to battle, we know the end of the story, in Christ we have the victory. We must not wave the white flag of defeat, but wave the blood stained garments of our redeemer.
He gave his life for our release from the chains of darkness, It’s time for us as a people to take a good look within. No matter who you may be, we are still one people; the enemy will not discriminate he hates all God’s children. You have only two choices, to do what is right or to do what is wrong; Only when God reigns in the heart of men will this nation again stand strong.
In God we trust, we know his word is true must be the song that resonates within; we are all his children even if we choose not to serve him. ” Blessed is every one that feareth the Lord; that walketh in His ways. For thou shalt eat the labour of thine hands; happy shalt thou be, and it shall be well with thee. Psalm 128: 1-2
