How do I know? He did it for me over 20 years ago. I knew in my mind all people were created by God. God has no partiality between people. God would never build a caste system... He was the One who heard the people cry and sent Moses to set the people free from Egyptian reign. God also heard the cries of slaves in America and sent the county into a Civil War to set the people free!
|We are all his sheep - there is no partiality in God's eyes! (-:|
So I knelt down by my sofa in my one bedroom apartment, often my place I met Him in prayer, and asked Him to show me.... of course, He did!
He told me every soul is created by Him. There is one Spirit that regenerates the soul of mankind. The Holy Spirit enters the spirit of a person at salvation and seals every Christian (no exceptions) to be a guarantee of salvation. God enters all Christian. The spirit of humans has no skin color.
God led me to think of the human body... beneath the skin... "look at blood Lindy" - there is no difference .... every person bleeds blood of the same color!God impressed on me to see others as He does, to treat others as He does, to love others as He does.
We need to stop tolerating racism. We must step up whenever we see it and never stand for prejudice of any degree or way. Yes, you will need to be strong, bold, and willing to not be concerned with how others perceive you. Never forget your acceptance in life is found in God, not others. We are called to be God pleasers, not people pleasers!
Look at the Bible Verse that is in the very center of all verses in the Bible:
It is better to trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man (Ps 118:8 NKJV).Here are so more:
Blessed is that who makes the LORD his trust, And does not respect the proud, nor such as turn aside to lies (Ps 40:3 NKVJ).
For you are all sons of God through faith in Christ Jesus. For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you are Christ's, then you are Abraham's seed and heirs according to the promise. (Galatians 3:26-29)
So embrace all - as one in Christ Jesus! Stop letting separating, multiculturalism mindset be filtered through the Word of God and the unifying blood of Jesus!
