He who has an ear let her hear what the SPIRIT is saying.
An open rebuke is better than love(Phileo) carefully concealed.
Wisdom teaches “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge; fools despise wisdom and instruction.” and knowledge applied appropriately is wisdom.
After seeing the accounts (http://www.letthefireburn.com/) that occurred in Philadelphia on Mother’s Day of 1985 (aired on PBS’s Independent lens), I was acutely grieved. Throughout the entire time I was literally yelling “was anyone thinking about the children!?” WHAT IS WRONG WITH THESE PEOPLE!? Then it hit me… This is result of the fall… Satan has these people captive and he can do whatever he wants with them. He has them hating, and trying to kill each other…so sad. Then my grief subsided and turned into curiosity. There was so much that didn’t make sense. If this organization was truly about something positive, why weren’t the children being fed properly? Why weren’t they being educated? Why weren’t they clothed? These are three out of the four basic human needs. There’s no “system” that dominates these markets? No, you don’t have to send them to government schools, but education by definition is assuring that ALL the information is being taught with a specific purpose: to give intellect, to establish a moral standard of living, and give social instruction. Food can be produced, and clothing can be made…and you don’t need a sewing machine to do that. I was not feeling the LOVE(AGAPE)…..and then again…the mission statement doesn’t say anything about positive change either..my bad.
From a carnal and un-spiritual perspective, the documentary proved well that everyone involved; MOVE, PDP, and PFD, was clearly fueled by hatred that stemmed from the events that occurred previously in 1977. Everyone behaved badly. For it is written “Anger rests in the bosom of fools (fools by definition means: evil or Godless). What you may not know Ms. Africa, is that you (MOVE, PDP, PFD and the Mayor) all fell for the “okie doke”. Please hear me….see, if satan can get humankind to hate and kill each other..this pushes his agenda. He starts with a lie and then calls it “truth”. If you hear a lie long enough you start to believe it..just ask the former Mayor. You all got played and there were major casualties. Fortunes untold were robbed.
Forgive me madam if my words have an air of discontent, but it’s not to you that my disappointment is directed; for the weapons of our warfare are not carnal. Mother Africa, You are fighting the wrong enemy. I’m not placing blame on any human nor am I saying that Americans should not have the right to live as the Constitution guarantees; life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness(note: and I do understand that when they wrote the Constitution African Americans were not considered…I get that)…but despite our frailties as a nation, we are blessed beyond measure. All Americans clearly have more “liberties” and opportunities than most, otherwise, you guys would not have progressed thus far; lest you forget that your longevity is only by the hand of God and Grace to which you have been given…..but it could have been executed in a more excellent way if Love was the true motive.
You see Ms. Ramona, my beef with this organization is not only with your leader’s (satan, not John Africa) selfishness, pride, and foolish manipulative behavior (let me reiterate: this is not about the physical, this is spiritual), it’s the mere fact that as WOMEN, no one fought for the children. Forgive me please if I’m out of line…the women may have acted out of a progression of institutionalization, oppression, and possible indoctrination, but I find it hard to swallow that these women; that are descendants of a people that survived the Middle Passage, Colonial Slavery (because slavery in the ancient world was not the same), and Eugenics, would be so gullible to think that anything productive would come out of this organization..especially when the words “LOVE” and NURTURE” are not mentioned in its directives. If they are…where’s the fruit?
“Well”, you say “How can we Love, when we’ve never been shown love?”….I’m glad you asked that question…:-)
That’s another lie that satan tells us. The truth is you have been shown love. You don’t recognize it because of your past and the compounding events that “scar” the “scar” tissue of your soul. Love’s example was shown in the humility and obedience of Jesus Christ. The true and highest form was shown through Elohim’s perfect sacrifice of His son…that’s Love… How? He sacrificed himself to save us all…that’s what parents and husbands do. There is allegorical explanation, but I’ll leave that for another time….or you can do the research yourself.
Through the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus (Yeshua (ישוע) the Savior of the World, Jesus already solved the issue of sin; which encompasses all the world’s problems and social ills, over 2000 years ago. The PROBLEM; which is sin (lawlessness and rebellion against Elohim), and not the “establishment” or the “system” was handled. These issues are just symptoms of the real problem….and the real problem will be resolved completely on the Day of the Lord. Will you be ready? In the meantime, this organization is a “puppet” being used by satan to push his agenda. It is fueled by hatred toward humankind and it is rooted in pride and selfishness (“what about me?..what about my people”, why can’t we have…?). Once more, he doesn’t love you. The fruit of satan’s “love” is: “Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions, divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God”. This is just a short list…sickness of mind, body, and demon possession is not included.and he’s always in pursuit of the children and youth ..but I digress.
Jesus became the ultimate sacrifice for the wrath that is coming on the earth due to the sinful and evil words, thoughts, and deeds such as the events that occurred that day; AND every other day since the Adam gave dominion of the earth to satan. This is the reality….and the truth. Man’s fallen state is the root cause of all evil. Hear me. Pride, which is the sin of satan lives in all of us this day…and this condition separates us from one true and living God and lover of our souls.. Elohim. But there is good news.
The good news: You have an opportunity right now to be restored to Elohim.
REPENT of your rebellion and hatred toward Elohim and his creation (this does not mean that you are sorry, but it means that you understand that you are evil and you have NO HOPE for true freedom in this life and the one to come). This also means you must decide that you’ll leave the life you know and all it’s “TRAPPINGS” and come to the Father through Jesus…..and BELIEVE that he took that wrath for you and the entire world, died and was resurrected, and receive His love, compassion, and wisdom…which is full-proof and infallible for man’s wisdom is foolishness to God!
Lastly, I implore you to examine your heart and consider what you think love may be. Since the fall of Adam, the definition of Love has been perverted. If we never had a father in our lives, if we have been abused, or if we have spent most of our youth uncovered and unprotected, we; as women have a hard time discerning what love is…don’t fall for the con. Here is the checklist.
1. Love is patient and kind
2. Love does not envy or boast
3. Love is not arrogant or rude.
4. Love does not insist on its own way
5. Love is not irritable or resentful
6. Love does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but Love rejoices with the truth
7. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things,endures all things.(Patience)
Love never ends. As for prophecies, they will pass away; as for tongues, they will cease; as for knowledge, it will pass away. For we know in part and we prophesy in part, but when the perfect comes, the partial will pass away.
When I was a child, I spoke like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I gave up childish ways. For now we see in a mirror dimly, but then face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I have been fully known.
So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.
Sometime love hurts as well and we all must understand that we will face a perfect God in the end. My prayer for you and MOVE is that you be called…and that you’ll accept the invitation.
