Historically black churches have played a major role in political, social, and profound organization of black people but the glaring issue is the black communities spiritual advancement which has been sacrificed through either unawareness or materialism.
Jeremiah 50:6 My people hath been lost sheep: their shepherds have caused them to go astray, they have turned them away on the mountains: they have gone from mountain to hill, they have forgotten their resting place.
What is the resting place? The resting place is Israel and the shepherds are pastors, the sheep are the Israelites they have forgotten their resting place because they do not now who they are and where they belong. This knowledge is a part of spiritual advancement The black churches should already know who the real Israelites are and explaining this for the people to understand and transforming the black community. The black church leadership should be serving the community needs not just serving themselves
2 Timothy 4:4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables.
What does 2 Timothy 4:4 mean? people will just say everything is alright believe in Jesus, go to church on Sunday, and make heaven your home. When do we tie in what the bible speaks about will happen to what is happening in the world right moving beyond the church walls on Sunday service.
How many pastors do you know talk about African Americans being of the tribe of Judah and the uniting of the two sticks in Africa.
Why does Jeremiah 50:6 refer to the Israelites as being a lost sheep its a warning There is no time to lose with teachers who do not know or wont admit that the Kingdom of Judah moved from Israel to West Africa and it was destroyed and the Israelites there was taken as slaved by the Europeans into the Americas and Caribbean.
Jeremiah 23:16 Thus says the Lord of hosts: "Do not listen to the words of the prophets who prophesy to you, filling you with vain hopes. They speak visions of their own minds, not from the mouth of the Lord.
The prophets here meaning pastors that ignore racial systemic injustice that only talk about peace but don’t explain why white people have more peace and happiness then black people we have been conditioned by Satan to accept an inferior status if we are all equal why black people get more discriminated than white people if we are all equal in the eyes of GOD the pastor wants everything to be about Jesus saving mankind not explain why black people are less saved than others how about read Deuteronomy 28:15-68 those are the curses happening to us not other races meaning we are the Israelites if we want to be free.
The church leadership should not close that is why we need more leaders and members actively participating play key roles and getting the youth involved because help should be 24/7 not just addressing violence in black communities, homelessness and unemployment lets solve them bring the people of GOD together and improve our lives. The Israelite community must start their own institutions, and the Israelite church running hospitals and clinics, schools, farms, transportation, waste management, retail, entertainment, utilities, maintenance, pharmacies, news media, etc. everything we need to be independent and self sufficient.
