It is 4:00 a.m., on a Sunday Morning, October 15, 2017. I sense a compelling urge to write what I am feeling.
The voice of a minister echoes in my ears. In the late 1980s and early 1990s a White Pentecostal Minister made several predictions. The prediction that echoes is the one that was made while the minister was standing in a large Black congregation in the city of Charlotte, North Carolina. His prediction was that, “The next major war coming was going to be a Race War in America”. It stunned me while I was sitting there with my family, however, I managed to shake it off thinking, “that can’t happen”, but still put it off to the back of my mind and throughout the years, especially recently, I have thought of it often.
In the day that we are now living in, it is not so far-fetched to believe that it is a possibility. All it takes is the wrong fight at a protest between the Black Lives Matter Group and the KKK’s or a Neo Nazi group. The wrong Police shooting of an innocent victim. The wrong misunderstood comment from the President of the United States of America, just to name a few possibilities of how simple it would be to light the flames of war.
When people are “caught up” in their emotions, considerations for the end results of those emotions are not thought of in the heat of the moment.
Are we really prepared for a war inside of America?
We see the horror stories on CNN as other nations attack its own. Babies, children and adults lying in their own blood. Let me paint a mental picture for you. Oh my God, are you prepared for your neighbor, your friends, your co-workers, and in some case, your family members to now become your enemy of war simply because of the color of their skin?
Oh my God, can you imagine what it would be like watching precious and innocent babies and children being murdered and brutally slaughtered simply because of their color?
Will America’s rich land and beautiful waters turn red inside from the shedding of innocent blood once more, simply because of the color of someone’s skin?
Will this beautiful country be turned to ruins to pacify our pride and prejudices and arrogance?
Will the President of the United States of America go down in History and be remembered as “the President in seat during such a tragedy”?
I pray that it is not too late and that the minister’s prediction can be changed, and if you are a believer in prayer, now is the time to pray and this is the prayer mandate, that God will change the prediction.
While it may feel good to get a point across, while it may feel great to feel hate and despite for another person, are you really prepared to see your love ones and your generation and maybe even you, destroyed just so that you can feel good and justified in your feeling?
A battle happened once in America because this country was divided. Will it happen again, may God forbid!
I pray that He change the lives of the people who gives themselves over to the evils of unjustified hatred for another human being that God created in His image regardless of color.
God created this world big enough for us all and He will NEVER allow one group of people to destroy his other children UNJUSTIFIED.
Does the slogan, “Let’s Make America Great Again” really mean, Let’s Destroy America so That We Can Rebuild it Again, Brick by Brick? May God have mercy on us and on the United States of America!
