Poetic discourse & counsel:
Racism is not a skin pigmentation problem, but a sin problem from a heart of self augmentation, at the expense of another man’s worth and affirmation.
It is a cloak of sin over a man’s life that chokes the truth within, calling God a liar for creating all men equal and mocks Christ’s prayer “that they may be one, as we [are] (1)”
It is an inner struggle between two wrestlers within;
the spiritual man unto God who lives to obey God’s Word of Truth even the call to “love thy neighbour as thyself (2)” and the natural or carnal man whose counsellor is the dragon of pride that seeks self elevation knowing his time to be bound is fast approaching.
Magnificent Angel of true worship to God was overcome with self augmentation and started a rebellion in heavenly, but was defeated at war and cast out of God’s heavenly place to earth.
So was said aloud in heaven “Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea! for the devil is come down unto you, having great wrath..(3)
The dragon, that old serpent’s slithering ways on earth uses its venom of racial pride and hate to deceive and divide to rule on earth. His poison, he spits and stirs in the hot pot of governmental laws and seals men’s hearts to the serpent’s politics and institutional lies.
Brethren, hear the Word of Truth and remember, we do not war against flesh or blood “but against principalities …powers ..the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high [places]. (4)” so use the spiritual weapons of warfare unto God, that are mighty to pull down binding strongholds.
The done deal prepared and “cooked” over two thousand years ago is by the Messiah’s death on the cross, so decree by faith that the Seed of the Woman has crushed the head of the serpent!
The only seal to allow is that of our adoption by the Holy Ghost to be God’s anointed “to preach…bind up the brokenhearted to proclaim liberty to the captives,…and the acceptable year of the LORD, and the day of vengeance of our God; to comfort all that mourn…(5)”
The time is short, for the King comes soon to judge, so implore “race hater” to bow to LOVE who sits on the Heavenly Throne and say to the “racially prejudiced”:
“surrender to the blood of the Lamb by which, with the Word of our testimony we overcome.”
Whether black, white, yellow, red or whatever shade you appear, Brethren, if a racist spirit deceives you, let the Spirit of Truth this day convince you of the God of racial love and justice when he declares
“no name or title of “Racist Christian” is found in the Lamb’s book of life and there is a place for such, called hell.”
And be ye convinced when in your heart, he speaks Jesus’ words that
“you love one another, just like I have loved you; …by this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another.(6)”

Thank you, Deborah, for this healing word. A devotional I read today had this to say: “In Christ, God was reconciling the world to Himself, not counting their trespasses against them, and He has committed the message of reconciliation to us,” 2 Corinthians 5:19. May we all be reconciled to God, one another, and the healing words we’ve been given in Jesus’ Name.
