Courage: Where Are Those Who Will Stand Up And Do What Must Be Done?

Courage

Story of David:

http://biblehub.com/library/marshall/the_wonder_book_of_bible_stories/the_story_of_david_the.htm

As children, we were taught one of the greatest stories and lessons from the Holy Bible. 1 Samuel, verse 17.  It is the story of King David.  But before he became King over Israel, David was a little shepherd boy.  As a shepherd boy, one must protect the sheep.  They are vulnerable to many predators.  If their lives are threatened, the shepherd oftentimes must risk his to protect the herd. His first act of bravery was to kill a lion.  Then he killed a bear.  David was just a teenager.  But he was special.  God noticed him very young.  It is one of my favorite stories.

Elohim referred to him as “a man after his own heart.”  Why did God love David so? What qualified David? Who by all accounts, was quite the scoundrel, but God loved him.  What was it that God saw in David that impressed him so? Because…David heart was completely pointed toward God.  He had absolute faith in God.  When David went up against Goliath, he had complete confidence that God would deliver him from danger.  David knew early on that God was to be trusted and obeyed.  This pleased God and he was rewarded for it.

Second, David absolutely loved God’s laws. Third, David always gave thanks to God. No matter what he was going through in his life .  It was one of the finest characteristics within him.  We all remember the part of the story where David was worshiping and praising God so much, his clothes came off.

Third, David was truly repentant.  We all know this part of the story: “It happened, late one afternoon, when David arose from his couch and was walking on the roof of the king’s house, that he saw from the roof a woman bathing; and the woman was very beautiful. And David sent and inquired about the woman. And one said, ‘Is not this Bathsheba, the daughter of Eliam, the wife of Uriah the Hittite?’ So David sent messengers and took her, and she came to him, and he lay with her. (Now she had been purifying herself from her uncleanness.) Then she returned to her house. And the woman conceived, and she sent and told David, ‘I am pregnant’” (2 Samuel 11:2-5). The mighty fall hard, and David’s fall included adultery, lying and murder. He had sinned against God and he admits it in 2 Samuel 12:13: “David said to Nathan, ‘I have sinned against the LORD.’ And Nathan said to David, ‘The LORD also has put away your sin; you shall not die.’”  We should all follow David’s example and acknowledge when we’re wrong.

In conclusion, David demonstrated his faith in God on a daily basis.

So, what does this have to do with Black people?  Everything.  We too are the love of God’s heart , yet, we have fallen. Like David, we have had our courageous ones who’ve fought many battles: slavery, abolition, Jim Crow, Civil Rights, racial violence, et al.  We too have had many victories but we also have had to face the enemy under trying times for our people. However, we have never strayed away from God.

In these trying times, we must not forget who are parents and grandparents prayed to. They trusted in God through everything, and so must we.

????????????????????????????????????

We are not weak and we most certainly must act courageously in whatever situations that we face.

God first breathed his spirit into a Black man–his first creation.  We are a reflection of him and must never forget that he will never leave us nor forsake us.

For we truly our a people after God’s own heart.

    “We too have had many victories but we also have had to face the enemy under trying times for our people. However, we have never strayed away from God.”

    Usually I co-sign with your articles but I can’t with this one. Black people have absolutely strayed away from God, our current status as a people is proof of this fact. Blacks are the most praying, church-attending, sanctified people out there, yet we find ourselves at the bottom of everything. Our current religious practices allow us to accept lies over truth. This is not an indication of people truly walking with God.

    You are right about our being the original people- the people that God gave the universal truths to FIRST. We gave all that to our enemies when we decided to turn away from God and began to worship white people.

    Until we get back to God our conditions will not improve- as a matter of fact, our condition is worsening as we stray further and further away from God.

      Some of us (newer generation) have strayed away from God, but as a whole, Black people still have the highest worship percentage of all groups.

      Now what is happening to us socially, economically, and spiritually is a result of certain Black people bringing strongholds on us as a people and the regions that see the most oppression, typically, are urban areas of the country.

      However, God has never left us. He just wants our attention again…

      • I know exactly what you mean, I work in a 5 star resort, in the entertainment department so I have to be dealing with outdoor activities most of the time, and first off, more than half of them no not look that good up close in person, I saw an interracial couple. This tall strapping black guy and this white woman, lemme tell you, this white heffa looked like a damn cadaver, she had just come from off the beach and she looked pruned and sun beaten, you can see all her varicose veins and everything. And they are the most boring set of people I’ve ever come across, no rhythm, energy. nothing, now I understand why they love coming to our islands, our energy rejuvenates and revitalizes them, while many of us go home tired and haggard… some of them, like Monday night we had beach party, one of these crackas got so drunk, he stepped on another guest’s broken glass and was tracking blood everywhere, for the few black couples I see, I try to engage them and hang around them most of the time….

        I’m not shocked. Alcohol really brings out the monsters that really are inside of white people. They try to mask their true nature but Black people are naturally discerning and we are extremely intuitive people. We’ve been telling them for ages how sick they truly are. It’s their unbelief and denial that causes the problems in society of that fact about themselves.

        That’s why I don’t let up on my blog.

        They even have sex with animals, eat human flesh, rape, molest and murder their own children and families, terrorize, kill themselves, et al. White people are a genetic mess!

        That’s why I don’t allow whites in my group on fb. I enjoy deleting their requests to join. I’ve seen it for years how they intrude on sites known to cater to Black people. The next thing you know, the site gets infiltrated by racists trolls and gets shut down or long time members get banned.

      Hi, Carl.

      Welcome to my blog.

      I’m watching a video by Dr. Phil Valentine this morning…the man talked about so much back in the day that is hitting home today.

      One of the reasons the Black community is destabilized is because of many of “so called leaders” allowing access to our community by whites who only want to continue their pattern of racial oppression by proxy to those Black leaders who mislead the people in order to make money from our demise.

        Helo Truthangel7, I agree, our “Leadership” seems invisible when it comes to defending our community. If you as most black people who is leading? They will say no one.

        I spoke about all of these things almost 20 years ago on BlackVoices but people were obsessed with the bling-bling. They didn’t want to hear anything about Consciousness or spiritual upliftment. Now, those same people are wondering what the hell happened. How are all of these killings of Black men continuing in the wake of a Black president. Something is not right in our nation and there is a spiritual response coming that is going to shake up this nation. God is not pleased at all. The flood in South Carolina came in direct response to Dylan Roof’s actions as well as the Rebel Flag controversy in that state. You do not mess with God’s people. Black people are the first humans God created. How dare a genetic defected, reptilian brain, Neanderthal attack us. He will not tolerate that.

        This is all metaphysics.

        Damn, your wisdom is great. That totally went over my head. The flood was in the same place as that shootout in Soith Carolina. Wow! You probably know this, but they had the nerve to set up a support page for Dylan Roof. They truly are arrogant.

        Smh. You sound like a prophet. God has set up many people in Egypt/America to lead his people out. You sound like my parents. Both of my parents are ministers and they teach the word thoroughly. We’ve set up businesses, had credit building seminars, first time home buyer seminars, etc. Very few people showed up. My church has FEW members in it because of the truth/anointing. We live in a age were people are blinded by flash (sex,money,materialism). My parents have teached people how to live right. Too many are riding the fence and stuck in religion. No shackles are broken. Sons and daughters, still doing the same thing their grandparents/great grandparents are doing. Wandering around the same mountain for 40 years. Satan isn’t playing. He’s mad as hell because he and the rest of the demons know their time is almost up.

        Entertainment is really deceiving millions of people. Behind secularism lurks satanism. 😒

        Yes, sir, BK. This generation has been blinded by the lies of the enemy. They are marked. Has anyone wondered why so many young people keep getting tatoos? God strictly forbids this in the Bible. Yet, they don’t want to hear it.

        I don’t know what is to come, but like Lot was sent to warn those in Sodom and Gomorrah; God does send people to warn the masses before he sends his judgement.

        Many of us are fighting back Queen. I’m on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. So many black pages are growing. More and more people are supporting black businesses. Promoting black love.
        Many are waking up, but not fast enough. Yet, many are still plugged into the matrix.

        I love your blog, I posted it recently under this pro-black page. I have it saved as a favorite.

        I was walking down 125th street last night and I stopped by this book stand. A bunch of books about black people. Malcolm X, our true identity as Kings and Queens. Long story short, I said to him. “Do a lot of people buy these books?”

        He said “Some. But not everyone.”

        I said ” If everyone walking these streets bought these books, we would see an incredible change in our people.”

        I bought a book called Stolen Legacy by George G.M James last night.

        Our people can get free easily if they focus on God more and unplug themselves from the matrix.

        This man has great insight/revelation. Check out his page.
