Black History & God’s Word Series - Day 1


"In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made" John 1:1-3 THIS IS TRUTH! So who was the Word?

Jesus is the physical manifestation of God. He is the personification of the written (Logos) Word. The Word became flesh (human) and dwelled on earth among us through the Divine Inception and Birth of Jesus Christ through the Virgin Mary. The Bible tells us in Revelation 1:14-15 that Jesus' hair on his head was white like wool, as white as snow, and his eyes were like blazing fire. His feet were like bronze glowing in a furnace, and his voice was like the sound of rushing waters. So what did Jesus look like? He was Black. 


However, DECEPTION has surrounded and buried this truth for hundreds of years, leading to a long history of generational lies, hate, racism, lack of respect for self and others, low self esteem, mental bondage, and the most damaging that has been achieved through this deception is SOUL MURDER. Soul Murder is a combination of torture, deprivation, and brainwashing. Black people were stripped from their heritage, their dignity, their families, and even their lives. This strategy of oppression was put in place to destroy the foundation of Black and other "minority" individuals while attempting to conquer them in many ways including money (economy and wealth), power, military strength, division, isolation (prison and mental institutions), and the most effective to date...DECEPTION. 


“it’s easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled" 


Black History was always hidden from the teaching of American History in schools, therefore, history has been ONE BIG DECEPTION in an ongoing plan and effort to make Black people feel inferior or "less than" their white counterparts. Black people were Kings and Queens who knew, loved, and worshipped God. It was not until they turned away from God and started doing what was right in their own sight that God allowed them to be taken captive. Black people's worst mistake was turning from God. 


Once enslaved, the PRIMARY MISSION of American society was to keep Black people in slavery, as personal property, forever. Slavery was not abolished until January 31, 1865 and ratified on December 6, 1865: Most notable among the laws Congress passed were three Amendments to the US Constitution: the Thirteenth Amendment (1865) ended slavery, the Fourteenth Amendment (1868) guaranteed African Americans the rights of American citizenship, and the Fifteenth Amendment (1870) guaranteed black men the constitutional right to vote. The Constitution was written on September 17, 1787, long before Black people were considered as human beings, let alone citizensThis is evidence the United States Constitution was never intended for people of color, ever. This may have been due to jealousy, envy, greed, or just down right hate, or a combination of wicked malevolence


You  see, Black people were Kings and Queens, a thriving, very organized, skilled and talented people, which was feared by their white counterparts because of the history of their strength, potential, such as the building of the Great Pyramid, but mainly because of their God. Black people were vulnerable to slavery because of sin. Sin separates us from God. It is when we turn away from God that allows sin to separate us from HIS presence and protection.


 Throughout their generations, Black People were kept from knowing and worshipping their God (The TRUE and LIVING GOD), and were brainwashed to believe that God and Jesus is a white man. Their have been many false beliefs passed down from generation to generation. These beliefs stem from DECEPTION, but also the anger, hurt and pain of slavery and abuse: from the broken Black man, the violated Black woman, to the separated and displaced children, Black people suffered a great deal for hundreds of years. But Why? How Can a God who loves allow such oppression to fall on His children? God never intends for harm to come to us, for He loves us ALL. However, when rage festers inside it can turn into hatred, and hatred can turn into rebellion. And whenever  the people rebelled, they became foolish.....

The 12 Commandments of How Wealthy People Think

Commandment #1: Wealthy people have a growth mindset, not a fixed mindset.

Commandment #2: Wealthy people believe specific knowledge is the way to wealth as opposed to formal education.

Commandment #3: Wealthy people get their money to work for them instead of trading time for money.

Commandment #4: Wealthy people influence their friends and family in positive ways and bring them along for the journey.

Commandment #5: Wealthy people understand that the educational process is a journey, not a destination.

Commandment #6: Wealthy people build a mastermind group of people who are wealthier and more intelligent than they are.

Commandment #7: Wealthy people believe they are in total control of their destiny as opposed to their destiny being predetermined.

Commandment #8: Wealthy people believe in and are willing to promote their products, services, and businesses.

Commandment #9: Wealthy people know the greater impact money can have on other people’s lives.

Commandment #10: Wealthy people focus on opportunities instead of obstacles.

Commandment #11: Wealthy people have an investor mindset instead of a consumer mindset.

Commandment #12: Wealthy people learn to act in spite of fear.

Facts:

Many poor people want to be rich, but their decisions and actions are geared towards survival instead of wealth and abundance. Building wealth is not comfortable. There is a huge difference between being comfortable and being wealthy. If your goal is to just be financially secure, chances are you will never be wealthy. However, if your

goal is to be wealthy, then chances are you will end up either wealthy or very, very comfortable.

Building wealth is not going to be convenient. You are going to have to make sacrifices to reach your goals. Wealthy people don’t base their decisions on what’s easy or convenient. They base their decisions on what is going to get them to their long-term goals even if it makes them uncomfortable.

Understand the concept of a wealthy mindset:

The single biggest difference between financial success and financial failure is embracing and living by these twelve commandments. Make it a practice to surround yourself with people who will push you to achieve more in your life. 

Find and join social circles, groups, and communities comprised of people who are financially playing the game at a higher level than you are. Then do everything you can to learn from the way they think, act, and make decisions with their money.

Then model those decisions with your own money. Find a way to do this even if you don’t have a lot of money right now. 

It’s fairly simple:

If you want to build wealth and master money, you must learn from

those who have already built their fortunes and have demonstrated

the ability to successfully manage it.

People who struggle financially either mismanage their money or they avoid the topic of money altogether. They often say things like, “I’ll start managing my money as soon as I get caught up and save a little.” This is like someone who says he’ll lose thirty pounds and then start exercising. One has to come before the other, not the other way around. You have to learn how to properly manage money and then, over time, you will have increasingly larger amounts of money to manage.

Commit right now, and practice the twelve commandments of money in your own life. Share them and empower others to do the same.

Change your mindset, change your goals, change your life!

Write Your Business Plan Outline

Start off with a simple draft of your idea, your passion, your gift or skill. Here are a few tips to get you started. You want to keep in mind that this plan will need to be updated frequently as you study and research your type of business. 

  • What are you selling? What problem are you solving?
  • What's your mission and motivation?
  • What makes your business unique?
  • What's your destination?
  • Who needs what you have to offer? Who is your ideal customer?
  • Who else could use your product or service?
  • Why do people need your product or service? 
  • Why should people buy from you and not from your competitors?
  • Why will people keep coming back to your business and refer others to you?
  • Why will you succeed where other, similar businesses have failed?
  • How will you operate? How will you handle production, services, distribution, delivery, etc.?
  • How much money do you need to get started? How will you raise the capital?
  • How will you market and promote yourself?
  • How will you manage cash flow?
  • Where will your business or office be located physically?
  • Where will potential customers learn about what you're offering?
  • Where do you want your business to be three years from now?
  • When will you start your business? What season and date make sense?
  • When will you know your business is a success? When you serve a certain number of clients/customers? When you reach a certain number of sales? When you move to another larger location? When you make a certain percentage of margin of profit?
  • When will you consider selling your business? 
These questions will help you to create your business plan. You may also use pictures, graphics, and charts if you are more of a visual person. Even a slide show works, as long as you're comfortable with the way you express your ideas. Go ahead and get started! You'll be surprised how much you get accomplished as you use critical thinking to answer the questions. YOU CAN DO IT!!!

Black History and God's Word - Day 2

"My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because you have rejected knowledge, I will also reject you as my priests; because you have ignored the law of your God, I also will ignore your children." Hosea 4:6. God's judgment against the children of Israel was not of his choice. They  wanted to be the god of their own lives. They committed all kinds of acts of sin, including whoredom, idol worship, all kinds of vanity, and they had forgotten their spiritual heritage. After Israel split into 2 tribes, they still fell to sin. Even though God had warned them of their punishment. The Bible tells us in Hosea 5:6, "With their flocks and herds they shall go to seek the Lord, But they will not find Him; He has withdrawn Himself from them." Then Israel would cry out to God, and He would hear them, and He would rescue them, every time. For we serve a FORGIVING GOD! However, we serve a HOLY GOD who is drawn away from sin because of His SOVEREIGNTY. Sin brings oppression, not God.



 Ephraim and Judah (Israel) disobeyed God's commandments and turned to their own pride. Sin was always the Fall of Man since the beginning! With that being said, the trickery of racists and aims of racism were utilized freely and without consequence during a time when Black people had simply fallen. Fallen from God's favor and mercy. His Glory and presence had left them. And oppression came upon Black people: A GREAT OPPRESSION. 


Still today there are false beliefs about God, Jesus, and Holy Spirit. Black people have been taught to believe in other gods and false prophets. God knew this and warned us that this would happen, even as it had many times in the Bible. And this forced or intentional ignorance is hurting Black people still today, like a poison or a virus, killing us silently as we continue to walk in error, not holding on to our faith, allowing false teachings passed down amongst our own people, to brainwash our minds into hating, despising, or not believing in our very Creator, Jehovah God. This is why Black people have not healed. You see, God is a Jealous God. If there was not another race war, police brutality crime, prejudiced word spoken, Black people as a culture, a human ethnicity, and God's chosen children, must get back in covenant with God in order to completely be healed. Mindsets need to be changed and renewed, repentance and forgiveness must take place. For our ETERNAL citizenship, it is CRITICAL that we, as a people, repent to God, turn away from unrighteousness and wickedness, and accept His only begotten Son, Jesus Christ, as our Lord and Savior. We MUST take our rightful place back in the KINGDOM.


Come Back for Day 3: Black Heritage


Black History and God's Word - Day 3

Yes Hunty! Black people were always in authority. Kings and Queens. Sumerians were Black people who ruled the Middle East. The Dravidians were Black people who ruled India. The Egyptians were Black people from Africa. West Africa had high culture. Timbuktu was an African city considered the center of knowledge in the world. Black people created great communities, money stayed within our economy, and Black people were prosperous, productive, and successful. 


Until the riots came. The White community that was led by the Ku Klux Klan began a campaign that was aimed at denying the Black people the

necessary things that they needed. When they realized that the

Black people were not going to be deterred and would continue to

build better houses and ride nicer cars, the Whites organized a riot

that lasted over the course of 16 hours.


This vicious hate and war cycle has cost so many innocent lives of Black people! It's like in the Book of Esther, when all the Jews were ordered by the king to be killed. All because one man wouldn't bow down to another! This type of injustice has been in the heart of man for centuries and has crippled our society. However, Esther and her relative, Mordecai, handled this situation by seeking God, not man, not guns or violence, they simply asked God to help them. They fasted for 3 days and 3 nights,on one accord, believing in faith that God would hear their prayers and rescue them. And God turned that situation around and rescued His people!

We need this same unity today. Black people need to come together on one accord and not only protest for the injustices in this world, but fast and pray, and ask God to help us ALL!


Come back for Day 4: The Slave Mentality

Black History and God's Word - Day 4

God's Original Design:

 Holy Trinity 

Man - Husband 

Woman- Wife

Child(ren)


In the beginning, God created the Heavens and the Earth. He created man last. Isn't that something? God saved the best for last! He actually created everything that man needed to live an abundance, prosperous, and blessed life without lacking anything. God wanted man to have a Kingdom mindset. A mindset of knowing that with God, all things are possible. That God is the  resource and supplier of all our needs. The earth is the Lord's and the fullness thereof, the world, and they that dwell therein. 


The sad thing is, over the course of history, the Original  hierarchy changed and so did the mindset of mankind. Let me share a true story about a queen who, because of her "independent" mindset, caused her own demise. Vashti was a queen of Persia and the first wife of Persian King Ahasuerus in the Book of Esther. She was banished for her refusal to appear at the king's banquet to show her beauty as the king wished, and Esther was chosen to succeed her as queen. Her refusal to submit to the king's wishes cost her everything. This is very profound!


Queen Vashti learned the hard way that when you are called, you respond. When an assignment has been given to you, complete it. The Bible tells us that many are called, but few are chosen. So many people that have a calling on their lives, have not answered to the call, and have been removed from the position. Many are not even aware! This is dangerous.


As people, we react to situations emotionally, and this sometimes gets us into circumstances far beyond what we ever imagined. Now when we look at the story in the Book of Esther, there is no clear understanding of why Queen Vashti refused the king, but it is clear that God is able to do what we are unable to do. So as we face trials and adversity in life, we learn that we can trust in God's divine plan. Romans 8:28 tell us that We know all things work together for the good of those who love God, who have been called according to HIS purpose. To be cont...
