“The price that America must pay for the continued oppression of the Negro is the price of its own destruction.The hour is late; the clock of the destiny is ticking out. We must act now! It is a trite yet urgently true observation that if America is to remain a first-class nation, it cannot have second-class citizens”.
Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
Happy Birthday he would’ve been 86 today!!!
Ultimately the greatest gift or position you can get to in life or achieve is reaching a level of service or (in other words because you are blessed, you become a blessing to others). The powers that be would love to see black people always in a position where they need help whether financially, or just in life in general. But when you get to the level where you are working in your purpose (where God wants you to be) and you are in a position where you can be of help to others instead of needing help. You will quickly see that you have become a threat, but fear not because the bible tells us I will make you a great nation; I will bless you And make your name great; And you shall be a blessing. (Genesis 12:2 NKJV) Becoming a blessing or in other words graduating to a service level is the highest level you can get to in life, and in that being so ultimately always needing help (no matter what your age or stage in life) is the lowest level you can be at in life. It’s a fact that the evil powers of this world would love to see you stay at a level of pacification because then they can control your life ,your thoughts ,and ultimately your ability to grow as a man think about it!!! God Bless
To my young brothers out there I need you guys to strive to be great. I am praying right now that all of you find your gift (that is given to you from God) in life. Then I also pray that God gives you the aggressiveness to pursue your gift that he has given you . The bible tells us that “A man’s gift makes room for him, And brings him before great men”. (Proverbs 18:16 NKJV) So no more sitting around because the hour is late and the time is near.
I’m talking to you future Nero surgeon, astronaut, pilot, future entrepreneurs etc. I said The hour is late and the time is near so start today. Be Great and may God Bless you guys
A man’s gift makes room for him, And brings him before great men. (Proverbs 18:16 NKJV)
A friend of mine once said
I know that the Angels are looking down on us from heaven and feel sad about how we steal, kill,and destroy each other over money which is the devils work
but I want to go a little further than that and say, God gave us here on this earth little pieces of heaven. Things that only appreciate in value and never depreciate in value. Things like gold,diamonds, ivory, copper, pearls, rubies etc. are everywhere in heaven. It says so in the book of Revelation
so my real question is why do we go crazy over money? A piece of paper that has to be burned and destroyed when there is not enough real equity valve to back it up . The precious stones and natural resources that I talked about earlier.
In short I want to urge everyone to get closer with God because Jesus tells us in our Holy Bible
I tell you, use worldly wealth to gain friends for yourselves, so that when it is gone, you will be welcomed into eternal dwellings. “Whoever can be trusted with very little can also be trusted with much, and whoever is dishonest with very little will also be dishonest with much. So, if you have not been trustworthy in handling worldly wealth, who will trust you with true riches? (Luke 16:9-11 NIV)
In closing I leave you with these words.
Now all has been heard; here is the conclusion of the matter: Fear God and keep his commandments, for this is the duty of all mankind. For God will bring every deed into judgment, including every hidden thing, whether it is good or evil. (Ecclesiastes 12:13-14 NIV)!!!
