“Spirits Don’t Die, People Do” by Dr. Jené Walker

LeBron James’s home was vandalized by a person who spray painted a racial slur on the gate of his home. The spirit of racism doesn’t discriminate based on money, fame, or fortune. That spirit is used against the chosen people of God regardless of our economic status. It comes against us because of Yahweh’s affection toward and election of us. In an interview, James made a simple yet powerful statement that it is “tough being Black in America.”

“The Cavaliers star, [LeBron James], then brought up Emmett Till’s mother, and how she showed the mutilated body of the teenager killed in 1955 at his funeral so that she could ‘show the world what her son went through as far as a hate crime and being black in America.'” He implied that if he had to be the example to keep this conversation about racism going, then so be it.

The spirit of hate, racism, prejudice, discrimination, supremacy, and bigotry are alive and well in America – the nation responsible for the largest slave trade in history. We ignorantly believe that things have “changed” because we don’t understand spiritual things; and until we do, we won’t be able to receive the truth. Evil spirits don’t die; people do. And when people die, evil spirits find new available vessels to reside in. When Yeshua drove a legion of demons out of the man in the cemetery, those demons asked to go into the herd of swine. The herd of pigs ran off a cliff and drowned. The swine died, the demons did not.

If we are willing are unaware vessels because of pride, envy, or any other issues we have that gives the devil a foothold or a portal and entry point, we will be used to perpetuate the hate, racism, prejudice, discrimination, supremacy and bigotry that we saw during slavery and segregation and still see today.

When the chosen people of God get a revelatory glimpse of who we are, come out of sin and idolatry, an awakening will take place on the earth that will upset the world’s system. God is blowing His breath, prophets are speaking, when will we awaken? Signs in protest and movements large and small and even wars (until the war that Yeshua Himself wages) bring awareness but only spiritual weapons can be used to fight spiritual battles.

“Let My People Go: Age and Shade to Separate” by Dr. Jené Walker

“I do not need to elaborate. I am not here to enumerate your problems, I am here to introduce you to a method of solving them. In my bag here, I HAVE A FULL PROOF METHOD FOR CONTROLLING YOUR BLACK SLAVES. I guarantee every one of you that, if installed correctly, IT WILL CONTROL THE SLAVES FOR AT LEAST 300 HUNDREDS YEARS. My method is simple. Any member of your family or your overseer can use it. I HAVE OUTLINED A NUMBER OF DIFFERENCES AMONG THE SLAVES; AND I TAKE THESE DIFFERENCES AND MAKE THEM BIGGER. I USE FEAR, DISTRUST AND ENVY FOR CONTROL PURPOSES. These methods have worked on my modest plantation in the West Indies and it will work throughout the South. Take this simple little list of differences and think about them. On top of my list is ‘AGE,’ but it’s there only because it starts with an ‘a.’ The second is ‘COLOR’ or shade.” Excerpts from the Willie Lynch Letter

Until we recognize that there is still a deeply rooted “hate” problem in this country particularly, we won’t ever be able to love as Jesus instructed us to love. Underneath the surface of the spirit of hate is “apathy” (“they need to get over it”) and a “pretense” (“I don’t see what the problem is”) that this type of hatred doesn’t still exist and at least a heavy residue from it. We can’t truly be the salt of the earth and the light of the world and hate God’s special people. We have to constantly check the motives of our hearts. We have to constantly check our love gauge. Do we truly love our neighbors as ourselves? What specific actions do we take toward loving the chosen people of God? If we’re taking longer than two minutes to answer, we need to assess our hearts.

Brown people, be vigilant. The effects of these schemes were deeply rooted in the system and ingrained in the minds of our forefathers. Are we still separated by age and shade as a people? We have to break the cycle and psychological warfare inflicted to keep us separated through spiritual warfare. We have to make spiritually conscious efforts to recognize these devices and how they have affected our interactions and feelings toward each other as a people. It’s time to wake up.
