The Gospel of Racism is Harming the True Gospel Message

Racial strife in America has reached such dangerous levels, we are likely headed to an uproar that will rival this summer’s Black Lives Matter riots. There are now millions of people who are so delusional about racism, they think we are living in the most oppressive time in our nation’s history.

They fail to comprehend that there was a time when people were legally defined as property, there were cities and places you could not enter if you were of the wrong race, and you could get lynched for saying the wrong thing to the wrong person.

Today, things are somehow worse because of the erroneous claims that Trump is the most racist president to occupy the White House. The media spotlighting of every time a cop kills a black person is an ongoing explanation of out-of-control racism. The greatest danger to the life of a Black male in America is from another Black male. The murder rate in many cities is at record levels.

I think Black Lives Matter is a demonic joke straight out of the pit of hell. Black lives only matter if white people are involved. If 60 black youths are killed during a July 4th weekend, the world’s media don’t care. If some celebrity was found to pose in black-face 30 years ago, the press would circle them like sharks.

I’ve been dumbfounded by the level of dingbats gaining political office. When Chicago elected a lesbian as mayor, I guess people didn’t realize that her sexuality would heavily factor in the coming decisions she would make.

Democratic New York Congressman-elect Jamaal Bowman is a black man with very unique views on life. He believes the U.S. system of capitalism is a form of slavery.

“We’ve moved from physical chattel enslavement and physical racial segregation to a plantation economic system. One that keeps the majority of Americans unemployed, or underemployed and struggling just to survive, while the power elite continues to concentrate wealth in the hands of a few, and allow large corporations to pretty much run the world as multinational corporations,” said Bowman.

“The pandemic has revealed it. With almost 300,000 dead from the pandemic, disproportionately Black and brown, and Jeff Bezos is the first $200 billionaire. In the next six years, he might become the first trillionaire. That’s slavery by another name. It’s a system that’s not working, so we need a new system,” again said Bowman.

The fixation with racism has heavily invaded the churches. The Rev. Ralph West, founder and senior pastor of The Church Without Walls in Houston, Texas, recently said he is cutting ties with the Southern Baptist Convention over a recent statement from the denomination’s Council of Seminary Presidents denouncing critical race theory and intersectionality as incompatible with their beliefs.

West, who ministers to more than 24,000 families in three locations each week, made the announcement in an op-ed published in the Baptist Standard, which called on the seminary presidents to repent for bringing “division and confusion to the body of Christ” with their statement.

“The statement on critical race theory and intersectionality has soiled that good faith. I cannot maintain my affiliation any longer and therefore am withdrawing from Southwestern Seminary. Nor will I associate with the SBC any longer,” West said.

“What the SBC seminary presidents have done has brought division and confusion to the body of Christ. They must repent and seek reconciliation with those who can properly inform them of the wrong they have done. They must ask the Lord to open their hearts to hear the truth of the gospel of Jesus Christ and how Jesus’ reign truly should impact our society,” he added.

I listened to several of West’s sermons from the last few months, and I can clearly say that he is gifted at appealing to the emotions of any crowd. He offers soothing words to people who are still on their way to hell. They don’t know the gospel’s message because Rev. West has been feeding them with a bastardized version of biblical texts for several years.

If you think Jesus came down to earth just to save mankind from the racist Roman Empire, you are immune to the true gospel message. Jesus came to die for all people who are equally lost in sin.

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved” (John 3:16-17).

At the Heart of End-Times Prophecy

We are all too familiar with the angst and agony over the 2020 presidential election fraud, the overblown COVID-19 perpetration (in my opinion), and the satanic globalist rage that threatens to bring on life worse than that under the Nazi regime. But there is something even more profound in terms of where we stand on God’s prophetic timeline.

It has been going on for years—decades, really. We see it going on at the moment, even under the auspices of the president we here hold to be a true champion of Israel, thus one of the most God-directed of all of American history’s chief executives.

The actions taken by the US State Department and other agencies in this regard date back to Israel’s reestablishment as a nation in 1948 under President Harry Truman. The efforts, however, got seriously underway in later administrations, with the efforts becoming more pronounced in the most recent decades.

I refer here to the incessant attempts to bring Israel into peace arrangements with its blood-vowed enemies. More specifically, the heart of end-times prophecy—as referenced in the article’s title—involves the attempts made at dividing God’s Promised Land given to His chosen people, the Jews.

Efforts were made to do so during the Johnson and Nixon administrations, to be sure. Jimmy Carter’s presidency made progress in bringing together Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin and Egyptian President Anwar Al-Sadat. This was without serious attempts to add to the mix the division of the land God gave to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

But it was with the George Herbert Walker Bush presidency that the most profound signal of the very end of the age began shaping in an easily observable fashion. James Baker and the State Department began serious efforts to force the proposal that the land be divided in order to try to bring Israel’s enemy neighbors to the so-called peace table. Bill Clinton’s administration continued the effort, offering PLO leader Yasser Arafat 98 percent of all the PLO wanted, but to no avail, as Arafat walked out on the talks, knowing he would have nothing to complain about if he accepted the sell-out terms.

Then came the truly serious effort to produce the land-for-peace deal. The Roadmap to Peace proposals were carried out by the George W. Bush administration. That effort is still going today, having bridged the Barack Obama administration’s doing as much damage to Israel as possible, while maintaining a solemn face of pseudo-friendship with the Jewish state.

President Trump assigned his Jewish son-in-law, Jared Kushner, the job of putting together and carrying out the “Deal of the Century.” While Mr. Trump has been an apparent friend to Israel like no other president, nonetheless his administration retained some of the Roadmap to Peace land-division ideas within the “Deal of the Century” blueprint.

The Lord has said plainly that He will not abide the division of the Promised Land.

For, behold, in those days, and in that time, when I shall bring again the captivity of Judah and Jerusalem, I will also gather all nations, and will bring them down into the valley of Jehoshaphat, and will plead with them there for my people and for my heritage Israel, whom they have scattered among the nations, and parted my land. (Joel 3:1–2)

God says this is in a time He has chosen to deal with all who have been implicit in dealing treacherously with His chosen people. It is the end times—the very end of the age—of which He forewarns.

And it’s not only those outside of Israel who are bringing about the fulfillment of this prophecy. We see growing within Israel’s governing forces a number of people who want to embrace this deadly course with regard to land for peace.

Benny Gantz believes Jerusalem is “spacious” enough for a Palestinian capital whilst still remaining united, according to an interview in a Saudi newspaper.

Gantz who serves as defense minister and alternate prime minister told the Arabic language newspaper Asharq al-Awsat that Jerusalem is a “spacious city that is full of sites which are sacred for all.”

They want and need an entity in which they will live independently. A state or a kingdom, they can call it whatever they like,” Gantz said. “It is in their right to have independence and a capital which will be a solution to all deadlocked issues.”

“I want Palestinians to be part of the peace process. The push for normalization within the Arab world is a great and tangible opportunity,” he said…

While Israel views Jerusalem as its official and undivided capital, while the Palestinians want its eastern part as their own capital under a two-state solution.

A peace plan unveiled by U.S. President Donald Trump earlier this year placed the Palestinian capital in Abu Dis, a small town near Jerusalem. (Gantz: There will be a place for Palestinian capital in united Jerusalem, Ynetnews, December 19, 2020)

As is often pointed out, despite all the other end-of-the-age signals that are flashing during the course of hourly news cycles, the nation Israel is the prime indicator of where this generation stands on God’s prophetic timeline. And it is the dividing of the land God promised to descendants of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob that is at the heart of Bible prophecy on the cusp of being fulfilled—with Armageddon looming.
