Stop Trying to Rebuild Walls that Christ Tore Down

hands-1939895_1280

 

We are all one in Christ, one people, and one human race,
Image-bearers of every age, background, color, and place.
So why are some trying to divide us? What is the reason?
God doesn’t delight in this, no He doesn’t, not in any season.

There are some who preach about the “white” church, and some preach about the “black” church,
But this is about God’s image and the cross of Christ; let’s get back to the Bible and do the proper research.
Are we promoting ethnicity? Or the color of a man’s skin? Ummmm………do you remember Antioch? Do you remember Peter’s sin?
It is all about the cross, yes, the cross is what makes us all one kin.

Black, white, brown, red, yellow; what does this all matter?
We’re all even at the cross, none of us more worthy to flatter.
So what is all of this separation? It is contrary to the gospel!
Christ came to tear down the wall, and all that was hostile.

Racism of any kind is evil, even if you don’t have power,
Hating someone because of skin color, looking to devour.
It exists in every city and nation, all due to our sinful heart,
Let’s stop bringing it into the church; stop tearing us apart.

Some are saying, “You people need to repent of your ancestors’ sin!”
No! We must repent, but for our own sin, revealed by Christ within.
But not for sins we do not commit; that is a burden placed by others,
Others who want to erect another wall, separating sisters and brothers.

Let’s get back to the gospel, and spreading the kingdom of love,
Spreading the love of Jesus, a message many are now devoid of.
Do you disagree with all of this? Please, go and read Ephesians,
God has forever shattered the wall; you have no biblical reasons.

How about about Colossians 3? There is no distinction between Gentile and Jew,
The door to the Kingdom is wide open, and all are invited to walk through,
Christ has brought us near by His blood, whether slave or free,
His Kingdom has many branches, but we are all part of one tree.

Let us stop all this nonsense, dividing the body over racial distinction,
Division comes from satan; he wants to bring the church to extinction.
This isn’t healthy for the church; it doesn’t move us toward one another,
It increases suspicion, grieves God, and drives us away from our brother.

Made in God’s image, as human beings we are God’s crowning creation,
His likeness unites all of us as people of every tribe, tongue, and nation,
And those of us redeemed by Jesus Christ, we have even more to celebrate,
United in Jesus, all colors of skin; this truth the gates of hell cannot frustrate.

The sin of racism exists in people who are white, and in people who are black,
It exists in Asians, Indians, and Europeans; no one is going to be cut any slack.
So stop elevating one group over another, or encouraging any kind of separation,
We are all sinners in need of Christ, who became one of us through the incarnation.

The church needs to stop talking like the world, who are creating more racial barriers,
You see their skin color first?! Instead of God’s image?! No theology could be scarier.
To be sure, this worldview is not pleasing to Christ or any of His godly ministers,
It brings the devils to laugh and the angels to weep; it makes the church look sinister.

I can’t wait until the day! A day with no more racism, kinism, or any kind of ethnocentrism,
A day with no more terrorism, feminism, socialism, or that other big devil atheism.
A day when all the redeemed will gather, redeemed from every tribe, tongue, and nation,
The day when we will sing to our King, our mighty Lord Jesus, in our common adoration!

So let’s stop this dangerous teaching, and no more  playing these childish, worldly games,
For ONE day, with ONE voice, there will be ONE people, all worshiping our ONE Mediator…………….

The Name above all names!

The Place Where Hatred Will Be Gone Forever

sunset-1551323_1280

 

There is a place where hatred and racism cannot, and will not, exist. But in case you haven’t noticed, we aren’t in this place……..yet. What will be so different about this other place? How will we view people who are different than us? How will we interact with people of a different skin color? Or people who were from a different country? What will it feel like to be in such a place? Well, I can only imagine (cue the music) what it will feel like to be there? But……..don’t we already know something of what it will be like in this place? Yes, we know some things about it, for God has told us about this place. Here is just a snippet of some things we know.

In this place……………

No more will people hate one another.

No more will people be angry with one another.

None will slander or gossip about others.

There will be no murder.

Babies who were aborted will now be loved……perfectly.

People won’t shoot other people.

Only righteousness will dwell.

We will embrace others with joy and love.

We will see Jesus and adore Him, the One who is love.

We will be with Jesus, the One who teaches us to love others.

In this place…………

Racism will be a thing of the past.

The cross of Christ made sure of this.

Racism will be gone forever.

There will be no walls of separation.

There will be no more white supremacy.

There will be no more black supremacy.

There will only be Christ’s supremacy.

White people will love black people.

Black people will love white people.

White people will love other white people.

Black people will love other black people.

The reason is because we will all be one people.

Black, white, red, yellow…………one, all one.

In this place……………

Former democrats will love former republicans, and vice versa.

There will be no more politics, just one King.

One nation’s people will love another nation’s people.

In fact, there will only be one people.

All people will love all people perfectly.

We will be with Jesus, the One whose blood makes us all one.

Yes, by His blood, He has made us all one.

We will love as God loves us.

The Holy Spirit will perfectly rule all hearts.

ALL people and angels will supremely love the Christ!

In this place…………….

There will be no more protests.

There won’t even be anything to protest about.

There will be no one setting things on fire.

The only fire to be seen are the eyes of Jesus, eyes like blazing fire!

No one will be scared.

The world will be perfectly unified.

There will be perfect joy, love, and harmony.

No one will silence anyone else.

No one will want to silence anyone else.

We will love hearing others sing glorious praises to our God.

In fact, we will join them in song.

No protests, only fellowship…….glorious fellowship!

Only worship of God………glorious worship of God!

Our free speech will be used to praise the Name of Jesus!

In this place……………

There will be only one Kingdom, made up of all who love Jesus.

A Kingdom made up of all races and ethnicities, but yet still one.

There will be no elections, for Christ is forever King.

He will never need to be voted in.

Christ has no need of votes.

He has been appointed forever by God the Father.

No one else will ever lay claim to His throne.

We will be forever thankful that He is the only Ruler.

In this place………….

There will be no more ruthless and oppressive dictators.

There will be no more threats of nuclear war.

No more will one nation attempt to overthrow another nation.

No more terrorism.

Our perfect Lord and Father will rule over all.

He will rule with perfect wisdom and love, as He does now.

All earthly kings will give up their tiny little, futile kingdoms.

All earthly elected officials’ terms will have come to an end.

Only Jesus Christ will reign forever and ever.

All earthly kings will bow in adoration to this one true heavenly King.

This place, this glorious place, is the New Heavens and New Earth.

A place where God and righteousness dwell.

But, there is another place…………

As for those who die in their sin, for those who don’t repent, who don’t bow to the King in adoration,

All those who hate others because of their skin color and never repented,

All those who harbored hatred in their heart for others, those who murdered with their hearts, and those who murdered with their guns, and never turned to Jesus………….

These will all be in another place. A place where righteousness will never dwell. A place of weeping, pain, and eternal fire. A place where unrepentant racists (black or white), and unrepentant haters of any kind, will dwell forever.

This place is hell. Don’t end up in this place. Turn to Jesus and be saved!
