Recently, I was asked by a Black editor to write an article based on the Bible and spirituality, which was alright with me. However, I was also asked by the editor to “Not be too Black because of the White readership.” When I heard this I knew I was dealing with a double standard and with Black discrimination by a Black person.
It is utterly impossible to write about biblical matters and not talk about Black people. If you talk about Moses you would have to talk about the 400-year slave trade in Africa in a place called Egypt (Exodus 12:40). That’s Black. If you talk about the Garden of Eden then you’ll have to talk about the River Gihon that went around Ethiopia (Gen 2:13). Now that’s Black too. If you talk about Mary and Joseph then you would have to talk about Black because they both were Black Hebrew Israelites. In fact, every Israelite prophet was Black also.
If you talk about the real Gospel, before the European translations, then you must let the world know that it was the Hebrew Israelite people, who are Black tribes, that were given the universal and non-racist covenant to bless all nations and tongues in the FULL IDENTITY of the real Messiah who is also a Black Hebrew Israelite and is from the TRIBE of Judah (Gen 12:1-3 + Rev 5:5). The Messiah's real name, by the way, is YAHSHUA and not the Eurocentric makeover better known as Jesus. To remove the Blackness from the real Israelite tribal people is to side with religious liars and hypocrites, which would also mean being in league with the devil--the father of lies (John 8:44).
In closing, I say, "no thanks." That editor can keep his article and that's my final answer. My soul isn’t for sale. I, for one, am not ashamed of the Gospel of Yahshua the true Messiah. Yahshua’s uncompromising truth is power unto salvation.
Stay blessed, stay true, and may I see at the throne wearing white robes with palms in your hands.
End Time Oracle,
