They Know You Better Than You Know Yourself

There are people who have spent years studying how you talk, the way you dress, the way you look, what your interests are and more! If you paid close attention to the scene in Fighting Temptations, when Cuba Gooding Jr. was selling his idea to market malt liquor in black communities to a white board, then you know that sort of thing really goes on across the world concerning us. Well, there are marketing practices not so obvious, but are specifically designed to keep you ignorant.

Non-blacks know that average blacks don't like to study, read books, or do anything to advance their knowledge in the affairs of the local, state and national governments. They know we don't like to spend our money (look how many bootleg copies of media circulate the black community.) They know that we love our music, our hair (thanks to Chris Rock confirming that!), and most of all we like to showboat in our new cars, trucks and houses. So with all that said, some of you will be deceived when the phony images come across the screen about a false Messiah. You will be deceived, like you were when they told you to get the Swine Flu immunization shot. You will be running around asking someone to pray for you when suddenly you are getting attacked financially and mentally because of the high price of food you buy and eat. "Why is this hurting my stomach? It never did before! What is going on why are all these problems happening in my community?" Don't be ignorant!

Racism hasn't left! The powers that be have just found a more sophisticated way to keep you in the dark such as: bombarding you with foolish shows on television to keep you laughing while they have their meetings on what to do with "you people." American blacks aren't the only ones being hoodwinked and bamboozled (as Spike Lee once said,) but blacks all around the world are being deceived out of their traditional ways of living ie.) Haiti!

Wars are ongoing daily. But nowadays rather than making a big scene about them on TV, why not shake the ground up on enemy territory around the world? As long as your world isn't being shaken up you don't question anything and you don't care, right? However, there is a God who does care and He expects those of us who say we believe in him to be concerned! So my friend, you are in error in your thinking like I once was. Notice I didn't say "be worried," because concern and worry are two different things -- look it up if you question what I am saying.

We should be prayerful about what is going on in the world. But how can some of you pray when you don't know what to pray for? As my grandmother once said, "Get your head in a book!" I will take it one step further, get silent before God and ask him, "Lord, forgive me for not caring about my national neighbors. What Lord shall I pray for? What knowledge am I lacking to help do your will?" Rather than playing games on the Internet (like those distractions on Facebook) see what your brothers and sisters in Christ are "exposing" and keep yourself and family safe.

Speaking of prayer, I hear that alot in the black community. "I am praying for you. I am praying for money. I am praying you will be safe." All these general prayers! Where are the "by the blood of Jesus" wailing prayers! The ones that make the ground move where even man would have to expose himself and say, "Look I didn't set that earthquake off!"

Has anyone in the black community ever questioned, "Well with all these so-called spiritual folks praying to their mighty God, why haven't we been coming out on top besides Obama's presidential election (and you see what that was really about or maybe you don't -- better start researching)? Why is it that we are still falling short in health, wealth and more?" I hear plenty of, "I'm so broke...I can't make ends meet!" You have a job! Spend less. Temporarily cut off certain things and don't want to do that right? Search for ways to cut your expenses.

As the young people on the street say, "I'm just sayin!"

While some of you are walking around singing, dancing, laughing and grateful that you aren't out on the cotton field, remember someone is studying you and your family (and God is watching too) so give them something to talk about, your intelligence. The fact that you are in touch with what is going on around you -- affecting you and your family mentally, physically and spiritually.

I think some men and women are still very cautious about learning, because they don't want to be deemed weird, boring, strange even crazy. They don't want to debate or face controversy because of their views. They don't want to make anyone feel uncomfortable, so they keep their thoughts to their self. Others don't want to learn more because they are fearful of what that might mean to the world around them.

If you are a believer, like you claim, strap up your spiritual armor and fight the good fight even in your sin! God will use anyone or anything as long as they are open to Him and willing to work toward change. Trust me, I know!
