TODAY’S PROPHETIC WORD
The Father is ready to show you His heart for others. Don’t harden your heart, but remain pliable and teachable and let God show you things you’ve never imagined before!
RACISM – A SPIRIT THING
There’s always been racism in the United States, especially in the South. I grew up in the South, and I remember getting slapped on the back of the head as a little boy because I drank out of the wrong water fountain at the Fort Worth Zoo.
I remember being shamed and crying, and people yelling at me to never drink out of that water fountain again. That did not happen 1,000 years ago. It happened within my lifetime.
I can remember pumping gas at my grandfather’s gas station. A black family pulled up and I ran to pump their gas. The manager said I could not pump gas for them. This was in downtown Alvarado, Texas in the late 1970s.
I also know what it’s like to run a rental store in a black community and be called every racist name you can possibly imagine day in and day out. I’ve even been shot at because I’m white.
One time, I was in the projects in LA giving out food. There were 52 pastors and I was the one white guy in the crowd. Somebody threw a brick at me, which dang near killed me. I was there feeding people!
Racism is not a black thing. Racism is not a white thing. It is a spirit thing!
The demonic spirit of racism, and the mobs that feed off it, have been stirred up by Satan himself and it belongs in the pit of hell. For those of us with an eye to see, we know God loves and created the races – all races. Do not partner with the spirit of racism!
Partner with the Holy Spirit. See others through His eyes. He wants us to be one in spirit because that’s where we are made in His image.
And I am no longer in the world, but they are in the world, and I am coming to you. Holy Father, keep them in your name, which you have given me, that they may be one, even as we are one.
– John 17:11
TODAY IS A GOOD DAY TO SEE THE FAMILY RESEMBLANCE IN OTHER JESUS FREAKS. LOOK PAST THEIR SKIN COLOR AND KNOW YOU SERVE THE SAME KING!
