Why has this racism bug infected more people than COVID-19?
Both are spiritual demonic activity from satan.
Sadly, people in the houses of worship are caught walking in the flesh and not in the Holy Spirit.
True mature believers don’t have a racism problem. In fact, true believers doesn’t keep a record of past wrongs. Like the Lord, we forgive it and let it go. We don’t fight to remain angry. Neither do we waste time justifying hatred and anger, even using the Scripture, “Be angry but sin not.”
We use that Scripture to justify our anger and even slip in our hatred. But a truly mature believer relinquishes the right to be angry, even when you’re right with righteous indignation. You’ve learned to live above the fray and do as Matthew 5:43-48 says.
Imagine the Lord retaining the sins of every man. Even God lets it go after a person repents. And even when they don’t repent, the Lord is a righteous, holy judge, and He will deal with it on the day of judgment.
“The love of God has been shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Spirit….” said Paul in Romans 5:5, and then Paul said in Romans 13:8…….
“Owe no man anything but to love one another.”
The ones that have a problem with racism are walking in fear. Many of them are afraid of ending up like George Floyd, and others that were killed. We must remember that murder comes from satan.
Fallen man that’s open to the suggestions of satan will carry out his desire to kill you. But we can’t be afraid of satan because the Lord, He is God and is more powerful than satan.
“Perfect love casts out fear.”
In 1 John 4:18….
“There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.”
When you become afraid of any man, White or Black, you have not been made perfect in love.
What love requires is that you abandon all hatred no matter how much you want to hate. To be made perfect in love demands abandoning hatred no matter what a person does.
It doesn’t demand CONDONING the act. Judgment and justice must prevail, but when the act is committed, it’s not a license to hate.
Nahum 1:3 says….“The Lord is slow to anger and great in power, and will not at all acquit the wicked.”
There will be more acts of violence against people. This is another problem.
We look at the injustices of taking a life ONLY through the lens of race. It gives life to the death and seems to apply the right accelerant to flame the emotions and passions of sensual man.
Walking in the flesh and not in the Spirit.
Proverbs 15:18 (NKJ & AMP)
“A wrathful man stirs up strife, but he who is slow to anger allays contention.”
“A hot-tempered man stirs up strife, but he who is slow to anger appeases contention.“
We become so hot tempered that strife is stirred up. And we deliberately go to others to increase the company of people to be just as stirred up as the one that started it. We become a band of people enraged that another injustice occurred. Then we simmer it with sitting down in committee fashion to address the issue.
When all we did was express our anger. Was heard by others, and we got this “off our chest.”
Until the next time another person gets killed.
You see. As long as satan keeps playing this song, he knows that we’ll get up and dance to his music.
We can’t change the skin color, but we can ask the Holy Spirit to help us to accept change from Him to conform to the image of Christ within. I don’t have White friends. I don’t have Black friends.
I have friends that are another race, but I don’t less value or increase value based on skin. The value of a person is from within.
Therefore, I can’t walk in hatred because perfect love casts out fear.
If you’re infected with hatred because of a hostile act done to another man, we need not condone the act. We must realize that the act and the hatred afterwards comes from the same devil.
Our job is to resist being driven by that which is demonic and strive to be mature in perfect love.
Only then will fear be cast out, and anything and everything attached to it must be cast out too.
