And The Nations Were Angry, Part ?: “One Blood of All Nations”

.

.

.

.

“And (God) hath made of one blood

all nations of men for to dwell

on all the face of the earth,

and hath determined the times before appointed,

and the bounds of their habitation”

Acts 17:26

Just when we thought that racism was beginning to subside in the western culture, this particular form of hatred is now rising up on a scale that we’ve never seen before!

.

Or so it seems.

RACISM: A PANDEMIC CRISIS

.

https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Shiite_Muslims_executed_by_ISIS.pngJust look at the “ethnic cleansing” going on around the world! It’s frightening, to say the least!

.

.

And in this nation, one needs only look at hateful reader comments on various Internet sites to realize that racism is alive and well!

.

Yes, hatred against skin color thrives on the Internet, where anonymous individuals can anonymously air their covert hatred for others: be it against people who are yellow, red, black, brown or white. Indeed, racism knows no bounds, as far as its targeted ethnic group. Racism is an, “equal-opportunity hater!” Even the government and politicians sanction a certain amount of racist rhetoric and retaliation in society, as long as that hatred is against a particular skin-color or ideology which they also hate.

“ONE BLOOD OF ALL NATIONS”

.

Ken Ham has written a book on this subject of racism, “One Blood, One Race” (click here to watch a 9 minute video by Ham).

And his purpose is to reveal what the Bible says concerning the different races…“And (God) hath made of one blood all nations of men for to dwell on all the face of the earth, and hath determined the times before appointed, and the bounds of their habitation” Acts 17:26

.

In this above verse from Acts, in which Paul is addressing a group of unbelievers, Creation Museum/Ark Encounter founder, Ken Ham elaborates upon the Bible’s account that we are all children of Noah, and even from Adam. We’re all relatives of each other: “one blood of all nations!”

.

Mr. Ham also reveals that all humans have color, howbeit different amounts of the pigment, “melanin”. And those who are considered “white people” are even a shade of brown, howbeit a much lighter shade than many others.

RACISM IN CHURCH?

.

And sad to say, there are some churches which “embrace” their own particular culture and/or ethnicity, instituting ethnic/cultural music, dances, ceremonies, icons, clothing, and even stylistic preaching, designed to vaunt their own particular racial/cultural backgrounds and biases. 

.

Of course, true Christians will bend over backward to reflect the racial color-blindness, which Jesus had. His or her behavior should be as free as possible of any cultural/racial exclusivity. We must remember that God is timeless…“Jesus Christ, the same, yesterday, today, and forever” Hebrews 13:8. And His words and actions had not the slightest taint of trendiness and fashionability! And neither should ours!

.

But like never before, in these last days, Satan has stirred up the multitudes to fill them with rage against others of different skin-tone.

.

And now we are seeing horrible racial hatred and even racial violence, both in this nation, as well as in many other nations.

GOOD NEWS! GOD’S LOVE IS COLORBLIND!

.http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File%3ABible-Study-Group.jpg

The Good News is, that even in this late hour, God is willing to pour out of His great love into the hearts of any one who is fed up with all this current hatred and racist finger-pointing: they can call upon His name, and turn from their ungodliness! And filled with God’s wonderful love they can have compassion for all, regardless of skin color!

.

No, God is no respecter of person, regardless of a person’s skin color! And that same, godly brotherly love is available to each and every needy soul!

TODAY’S FEATURED HEAVENLY SIGN

THE GLORIOUS 12-STAR CROWN CONSTELLATION

.

If you were to go out on a dark and starry night in the summer months, and lift up your head, you might just see this constellation group. Looking at this sketch, do you see this woman as she tries to take hold of that crown?

.

Well, this is a heavenly fulfillment of the above Bible verse (“And there appeared a great wonder (or “sign”) in Heaven; a woman…and upon her head a crown of twelve stars:” Revelation 12:1).

.

And this woman is known as the Revelation 12 Woman, and that crown is known as the Revelation 12 Crown.

.

You can see this constellation group in the summer months by looking in the western skies.
