Volume 5, Issue 2 – Feb/March 2004 “I have set a watchman upon thy walls, O Jerusalem, which shall never hold their peace day nor night. You that make mention of YHWH, keep not silence”. Isaiah 62:6
[Of the Sons of GOD (Elohim)] pt 2 very body in the world, of every tribe and language, claims that they are “True Israel”. “They” say that the “True Jews” began returning home in 1948 when Israel became a nation [in the re-gathering of the Israelis]. Yet, scripture says, “Can a nation be born AT ONCE?” [Isa 66:8-9] Why does the very earth cry out for righteousness and order??!! Or, consider the “peace” YHWH promised to establish by everlasting covenant with Israel’s rebirth?? [Eze 37:26] WHERE IS IT?? Only one nation of people in the world, ONE NATION, fits the prophecies [PAST, PRESENT AND FUTURE down to the very marrow of their bones]; and that nation is this so-called African American!! When Israel is re-gathered, the nations will know it!! It’ll be a “super-natural phenomenon and a spectacle” to witness as it was in the First Exodus from Egypt. When we leave this Egypt [Land of Bondage], it will be with undeniable power when YHWH puts forth his “mighty” hand to lead us home!! ”…The children of Israel and the children of Judah were oppressed together: and all that took them captives held them fast; they refused to let them go”. Jeremiah 50:33
THE EXODUS © Who has ever seen or heard such a thing? Black Slaves of the Land as Princes & Kings? We’re a people “terrible” from beginning to end It’s written in scripture found ‘soaking’ in sin How can a gain-saying people be used?? This is the story and the GLORY of the Jews Our branches broken and bones now dry our lamps are trimmed low our backs bent from the lies Are sealed by the Spirit to begin prophesying while standing in the fires of circumstance Heavy burdens in the field tears of sorrow, joyful dance No salve for the ‘rottenness’ of our own sores Travailing hard labor in an instant we bore Compassionate sisters and praying brothers revealing the ‘issue’ WE NEED ONE ANOTHER He’ll open up the shackles and prison locks Exodus trumpets, the soulful boom-box Spiritual sounds and the rhythm of hip-hop Non-stop Israel pours from the cities & towns Rejoice all ye lands, it will soon go down !!

round America, from the corner drug store to the White House, to the kitchen table, to the back porch, one thing has become glaringly apparent – there is a more cynical attitude in the Black Community that says ‘America is not committed to racial justice’. According to The Boston Globe, many within The Black Community have begun to rethink integration because as they say, “it never truly happened anyway”. Even some of the old ‘war-horses’ of the Civil Rights Movement have been tossing around the word “re-segregation”. Last year, amidst headlines from CNN’s 2003 article entitled “Blacks Lose Better Jobs Faster As Middle Class Work Drops” -- and The Washington Post’s 2003 article entitled, “Court Mirrors Public Opinion”, we find ourselves re-addressing the same issues that our forefathers once faced as newly [socalled] ‘freed’ slaves. Our people experienced ‘racial profiling’ as they moved about society, heavily burdened by the “laws” coming from the courts that were designed to hold them in check, rather than to set them free; and upon reading any current newspaper, the struggles of our people is the same. BET.COM indicated, “With this year’s ‘cold economy’, unemployment has become become an all-too-common status for people like Georgia Glaze.
Black unemployment rate for
October represented more than 1.5 1.5 million individuals like Glaze, a wife and mother who had been on her job since she The W atchm an – The U nited Congregation of Israel
graduated from college 16 years ago. "It's been kind of tough," she said. It gets discouraging, but she doesn't give up. "There's a lot of competition so I just have to keep plugging away. Something will come through hopefully." The economy began to slump years before 9/11, but the frozen economy since 9/11 has demonstrated just how real inequality is in this country for Black Americans. The controlling few [hiding behind 9/11 and the word “terrorism”] are working their plan which has already begun America’s collapse. Republican members of Congress and the Bush administration pushed legislation last year that they claimed would stimulate the economy, but their stimulus gave the rich a boost, instead of those who could really use it. When the wealthy get more money, they save it rather than spend it in a way that would give an immediate jolt to the economy. Thus, the rich continue to get richer and the poor, poorer. This is proved by U.S. Labor Department figures that have recorded the largest jump in unemployment in years!! Government officials continue their rejoicing of falling unemployment, but political events always have a different spin for Blacks. America’s structural inequities have consistently run the Black rate twice as high as the White rate for the past 100 years. While the overall, half-point increase sent shivers through the country, the full point jump in the African American rate was twice as devastating. The latest figures show Black joblessness growing at double the White rate and is actually going backwards for Blacks. BLACK PEOPLE WERE THE ONLY LABOR DEPARTMENT CATEGORY TO SEE AN INCREASE IN UNEMPLOYMENT from 11.2% as of 9/03 to 11.5% by 10/03 according to Bet.com News, Dec. 16, 2003]. The national unemployment rate [5.7%] as of March 2004 is almost as high as the employment downturn of 1994 [6.6%] according to USA Today. This means a whole lot of people at the end of the week are still standing in long unemployment lines where no one is handing them a paycheck. Yet George Bush and his ‘crew’ continue out-sourcing American jobs, literally pouring them overseas to China, India and Korea. And to make matters worse, the Bush “invitation” to grant illegal immigrants “citizenship status” is a slap in the face to Blacks since our own citizenship in this country has been non-existent historically [regarding quality of life]. History, current news and PROPHECY proves that our “struggles” are, INDEED, unchanged! At the turn of the century, in 1900, the vast majority of Blacks were tied to a The W atchm an – The U nited Congregation of Israel
form of agriculture that had changed little since the first slaves were brought to America While the Civil War had given Black Americans their [so-called] political emancipation, they still remained yoked to an EXPLOITATIVE economic system that kept them NEAR to servitude. After the Civil War & a short period of reconstruction, blacks made significant [but SLOW, PAINFUL] gains. Former White plantation owners, however, reasserted control over their FORMER SLAVES by instituting the sharecropper system!! The images of Black sharecroppers were even depicted on local and regional confederate notes [The Confederate States of America]. Near STARVATION, LANDLESS AND DESPERATE FOR WORK, black Americans became reluctant pawns in the new sharecropping scheme. Under the new system they were LEASED [allowed to rent] farmland, were given housing, seed, farm tools, and mules. In return, [payment] 40% of their harvest HAD to be given over to the [ex-SLAVE-MASTER]. Although the remaining harvest was to go to the sharecropper, their monthly wages were always too little, FORCING tenants to borrow on credit FROM THE GENERAL STORE. [THIS FORCING BLACKS TO BUY and SELL WITHIN THE SYSTEM parallels THE SYSTEM’S MARK OF THE BEAST coming upon mankind in the not-so-distant-future]. Today, as well as back then, corporations do not promote the working class having a satisfactory INCOME or OWNING their own things. Instead, goods were often marked up and interest rates on credit [and SIN TAXES] were and still are exorbitant! THIS CAUSES INFLATION, WHICH IS A TAX and is a perfect description of our modern day system of capitalism]. At harvest time, sharecroppers owed the landlord more money than their share of the harvest was worth, FORCING them into further DEBT AND DEPENDENCY. O ur struggles, are defined as “The Negro Problem” in a book entitled the same, by author, W.E.B. DuBois, who also wrote an article entitled “The Strivings of The Negro People”. [But our “old folks” used to title it best in their saying…’our people are between a Rock and a hard place’]. DuBois’ article, that was published in The Atlantic Monthly in August 1897, had much “truth” for The Black Community because it parallels the bible so uncannily. His words hold numerous clues to our “struggle” [as have so many of our early writers, (slave) songs and narratives]. We will explore this The W atchm an – The U nited Congregation of Israel
extremely prophetic statement, “Between A Rock and A Hard Place”, through visions and news of the past, present and future, as we move through The Black Community.

Th e prophets of Israel served as “Watchmen” over th e nation of Israel and were com manded by YHWH to cry out to the people [Israel and The Nations] and declare all they saw. Today this cry has become an urgent warning call to all mankind to repent be fore the storm and the JUDGM ENTS arrive. Can you see them approaching even now?? Romans 1:22-25 “Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man…Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonor their own bodies between themselves: Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever.

All across the United States, the actions of state governments approving same sex marri-ages [under the classification of a minority and judges’ failure to overturn these decisions] is a topic that is in the media from the religious to the business sector and from the business to the political sector. But America’s struggle with the issue is not a new one. In the September 25, 1980 issue of Jet Magazine, Paulette Pritchard and Irma Ash’s same-sex wedding was featured in an article entitled Church Unitement: The Sexes. This couple [two Black females who were actually married in a ceremony conducted by a Black church] said they’d known each other for six years after having met while working at a nursing home in Washington, D.C. According to CNS News [The Cybercast News Service, February 9, 2004], public schools all across America are being encouraged to debate the issue in their classrooms. Teachers now have an easy “curriculum guide” at their disposal in a six-point lesson plan from the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network. The lesson plans range from discussing the “historical parallels” of same sex marriage to providing students with the chance to read books about homosexual relations and then consider what it would be like to be in a same-sex wedding. But this deception has become “global”, as has almost everything else. In 1996, the Netherlands gave same-sex couples certain rights and in 2000, they passed a bill allowing them to marry and adopt children. Demark passed bills between 1997-1999 calling for the possible payment of alimony for those desiring to terminate a same-sex marriage. In 2001, Germany passed a law recognizing registered partners who have tax benefits that are very close to that of married heterosexuals while New Zealand ‘went all the way’ in granting status. Having existed in society since the days of antiquity’s Sodom and Gomorrah, the issue is not a new one. In The W atchm an – The U nited Congregation of Israel
the 1980 Jet article, it appears that the church’s use of the word ‘unitement’ [instead of wedding or marriage], indicated their reluctance to give the union “legal or moral credibility”. According to the bible, YHWH has spoken clearly against same sex relationships and described it as “uncleanness” and “unnatural use”. Always leaving us a way to escape temptation, his explanation on the subject has also given us understanding as to why these things are occurring: Romans 1:21, 26-28 “Because that, WHEN THEY KNEW GOD [ELOHIM], THEY GLORIFIED HIM NOT as God [Elohim], neither were thankful…but became vain in their imaginations…their foolish heart was darkened. FOR THIS CAUSE GOD [ELOHIM] GAVE THEM UP UNTO VILE AFFECTIONS…even their women did change the natural use into that which is against nature: And likewise also the men, leaving the natural use of the woman, burned in their lust one toward another; men with men working that which is unseemly, and receiving in themselves that recompense of their error which was meet. And EVEN AS THEY DID NOT LIKE TO RETAIN GOD [ELOHIM] IN THEIR KNOWLEDGE, GOD [ELOHIM] GAVE THEM OVER TO A REPROBATE MIND, TO DO THOSE THINGS WHICH ARE NOT CONVENIENT.”
Having read these words, what believer would not warn one so engaged in these activities of this certain judgment?? But what is also important for believers to remember is that sin is sin in the eyes of YHWH; whether it be homosexuality or telling lies - - all are guilty of sin!! There is none righteous….no, not one [Rom 3:10]. Thus, we must repent [turn away] from all sin as the scripture instructs us to do before sin becomes rooted and grounded in our lives. In March 2001, The European Parliament passed a motion calling on all EU [European Union] countries to pass legislation recognizing same-sex unions. The Daughter of Europe [America] is following her mother’s command. BBU US SH HG GIIV VEES S$ $1188 M MIILL T TO OT TH HEE A ARRT TS S While the American economy lies in near ruins and Americans remains grid-locked in “disenfranchisement, unemployment, and immigration issues, George Bush recently proposed the largest budget increase in 20 years for the controversial National Endowment for the Arts [NEA]. Pro-family groups are seething mad. The U.S. Government, having already maintained a budget of $122 million, the 15% increase is coming from American taxpayer funds. According to Family News In Focus, American Family Association President, Tim Wildmon said, “Spending our money on such things as homosexual film festivals, and art exhibits that are blasphemous” is wrong. The article indicated that the NEA sponsors everything from opera, modern dance to art – including many projects through the years that have had a decidedly obscene or anti-Christian [religious] bent. This information alone is more than sufficient evidence that George Bush is not working for the American people, but he is most certainly working the ultra “rich” super-elite “agenda” to destroy this country. America’s destruction is also verified in scripture, YHWH’s agenda, because his people are still captives here suffering under the unjust hand of those who reaped their benefits via our people’s demise: James 5:1-6 “Go to now, ye rich men, weep and howl for your miseries that shall come upon you. Your riches are corrupted, and your garments are moth eaten. Your gold and silver is cankered; and the rust of them shall be a witness against you, and shall eat your flesh as it were fire. Ye have heaped treasure together for the last days. Behold, the hire of the laborers who have reaped down your fields, which is of you kept back by fraud, cries: and the cries of them which have reaped are entered into the ears of the Lord of Sabbaoth [YHWH of the Sabbath]. You have lived in pleasure on the earth, and been wanton; you have nourished your hearts, as in a day of slaughter. You have condemned and killed the just.”

Wire [United Nations Wire], The World Trade Organization [WTO] announced on February 25, 2004, that it has given the approval for the European Union to impose The W atchm an – The U nited Congregation of Israel
trade sanctions against the United States totaling $370 million because Washington has not cancelled an 88-year-old law that allows U.S. producers to sue foreign companies that sell imported products on the U.S. market below fair market value. The WTO ruled the U.S. Anti-Dumping Act illegal in 2000, giving the country until December 2001 to revoke the law. The U.S. Congress, however, has maintained the law in complete defiance. According to the EU, three European companies are currently being sued by U.S. companies for selling products below fair market value [BBC Brazil.COM, February 24, 2004]. The European Commission has said it’s planning on imposing the same sort of financial penalties on U.S. companies found guilty of dumping European markets. Under international trade rules, countries can increase customs duties on imports that are below fair market value, but they cannot sue. The EU started imposing the sanctions [fines] against the U.S. the first week of March, 2004. Isaiah 47:11-15 “Therefore shall evil come upon you; you shall not know from where it rises: and mischief shall fall upon you… desolation shall come upon thee suddenly, which thou shall not know…Let now the astrologers, the stargazers, the monthly prognosticators, stand up, and save you from.
As motes are deployed more and more widely, the potential for the misuse of the information they collect can only grow, Culler says. He and his colleagues at Berkeley's Center for Information Technology Research in the interest of Society are already looking at how laws might be updated to protect the privacy of individuals whose comings and goings, for instance, may one day be tracked by motes. Indeed, an early test in March 2001 showed just how independent the devices could be. At a military base in Twenty-nine Palms, Calif., Pister and his team dropped six motes from an airplane along a road. As soon as they hit the ground, they organized themselves into a network and began sensing the magnetic field around them. When the field changed, as a vehicle drove by, the motes cooperated to calculate its speed and direction, later transmitting the data to a laptop at a nearby base camp. EE--CCO OM MM MEERRCCEE A AN ND DT TH HEE M M..A A..RR..CC.. More Smart cards have been developed and redesigned [for optimization] than one could shake a stick at. To get the public accustomed to the idea of using them with more regularity, the media has been a willing pawn. In a commercial on EBusiness, a rough looking character went into a grocery store and started loading his coat up with merchandise. Appearing to be shoplifting, when he finished, he headed for the store exit and walked through [what looked like] a big scanner. He continued past the exit, as a security officer stopped him [to make the viewer believe he was being caught for shoplifting; but the officer simply said, "You forgot your receipt". Then the commercial announcer began to say something about the "future of E-business". The future of E- business lies in the MARK of the beast! Rev 13:16-17 “He causes all, small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads; that NO MAN MIGHT BUY OR SELL SAVE [EXCEPT] HE THAT HAD THE MARK, or the NAME OF THE BEAST, or the NUMBER OF HIS NAME.”
In the coming E-system [cashless society], a receipt will not be necessary, but it was added to the commercial as another step to ease the introduction of this system. Many know of, or have heard of this famous “scriptural” mark, but most do not realize the seriousness behind the nearness of this time. Even the The W atchm an – The U nited Congregation of Israel
U.S. Department of Defense (DOI) has poked fun at the scriptures having named their own military smart card, the M.A.R.C. An acronym for Multi-technology Automated Reader Card, the M.A.R.C. card is issued to military personnel. Announced in The Pacific Business Journal News originally in February 1997, the Marines have been using the card for its military personnel since ’95. The cards [computerized dog tags] account for security clearance, meal rations, commissions, passport data, next of kin, medical data [including immunizations] and financial information. Pat Kelly, Director of Pacific Operations [DOI] said, “I understand the thoughts that this is shades of Big Brother, and the end of the world, but Big Brother does not exist in the wallet”. But it does on that chip inside the card, in the wallet!! Having miniaturized the chip’s components, [sensors, radio transmitters, batteries, hard-ware] and having improved its programming to be both “smart and energy efficient” [i.e., smart dust], the chip is now “syringe-injectable, heat resistant and is compatible with human tissue”. The Watchman says the time is closer than you think!! Spending power is being squandered, observers note,
Proverbs 23:5 “Wilt thou set thine eyes upon that which is not? for riches certainly make themselves wings; they fly away as an eagle toward heaven.”
relegating Black America to economic slavery, instead of financial
to the FinalCall.com News, Chicago, if Black America were an independent country, its wealth would rank as the 11th richest in the world, based upon a consumer research document that analyzes Black spending power annually. But that power is being squandered, relegating Black Americans to economic slavery, instead of financial freedom. Target Market News, Inc. (TMN), a Chicago-based research group, recently released “The Buying Power of Black America” which showed that $631 billion flowed through Black hands in 2002. In comparison, the United States ranked first in Gross National Income (GNI) at $9.6 trillion in 2000. This is impressive! Some have defended our spending trends by indicating that being the nation’s largest group of consumers is a method of rebelling against slavery and racial profiling by purchasing items that improve the quality of life that many non-Blacks seems so unwilling to allow us to have. In this manner, we have forcefully attained a lifestyle that for centuries was confined to upper and middle-class white Americans. But, looking deeper into this issue, it’s not so much that we are consumers, but the real issue is what we buy and where we buy it. Black Americans are the nations largest consumers in audio and visual equipment, cell phones, clothing, food, music, liquor and cigarettes; and nearing the top in purchasing ‘high-end’ automobiles. These are perishable goods with no real material (durable) value. With the age or consumption of these products, Black America is left with nothing in her hands. These facts have left our nation in a continual whirlwind where we work to accumulate more ‘stuff’ while never really attaining the wealth we seek. Real wealth and economic power is tied to land ownership. While 50% of married Americans own their homes, land or real estate ownership outside of residential living space is relatively nonexistent among our people. The land is necessary for building businesses The W atchm an – The U nited Congregation of Israel
which in turn, generates more wealth once the business is established; while the land or property itself generates equity and (generally) has a higher resale value than when originally purchased. The article quoted, "The children of Israel were taken out of Egypt and given the Promised Land so they could be a free people. There has never been IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD a people who were free and independent with no land”. “Arise, walk through the land; the length of it; the breadth of it; I’ll give it unto you”. Genesis 13:17
Dr. Claude Anderson, author of the book Powernomics: said, “In a capitalistic society, there is no such thing as consumer power – it’s an oxymoronic term. His logic is based on facts noted in the July 23, 2003 Final-Call.COM article entitled “Consumer Nation”. He noted that African Americans are in exactly in the same [financial] position as they were in 1860 on the eve of the Civil War. “At that time, 98% of Black people in American were en-slaved and we had ½ of 1% of this nation’s wealth. 140 years later, when we’re supposed to be free, we still have ½ of 1% of the wealth of the richest nation on earth”!! The reason is our failure to recycle our money within our own com-munities -including wealthy Blacks who have yet to truly reach out to their own.

“…It almost [sur]passes human understanding how a people can be so socially despised and yet artistically esteemed, so degraded and yet culturally influential, so ostracized and yet a dominant [editorial] force in American life”. Alain Locke, Harlem Renaissance
t does surpass human understanding how our people can be so loved and yet so hated. From the moment the soles of our forefathers’ feet touched American soil, America has laid noting but inequities at the door of African Americans. From her social policies to the political or governmental, the results have been the same. Scripture tells us that America was raised up to be ‘The Hammer of The Earth’ -- to dominate Israel as a strap to the descendants of ancient Israel. Thus, America’s power was given to her by YHWH Himself. But through His “justice”, he has condemned her actions and will “judge” her: “I was wroth [wrathful] with my people, I have polluted mine inheritance, and GIVEN THEM INTO YOUR HANDS: you did show them no mercy; upon the ancient have you very heavily laid your yoke.” Isa 47:6
Statistics verify the words of Yah: The W atchm an – The U nited Congregation of Israel
In 1900, there were only 11,665 Blacks in American prisons, but by 2000* the figure had increased to well over 532,000 532,000 with the largest jumps recorded during THE CLINTON ADMINISTRATION. Our people are unaware that in political circles, Bill Clinton is known as the “Incarceration President”. As stated so prophetically by Locke [but paraphrased], for generations, in the minds [and actions] of America, African Americans have been more of a formula than human beings - something to be argued about odebated, condemned or defended, kept down [or at least held in place, the politically correct action], helped up or helped out, worried with or worried over, harassed or patronized…a social “bogey man” or a socially ‘burdened man’. Unfortunately, our people have been induced to share this attitude in many ways by living life and searching for ourselves within a culture [that really isn’t a culture] that never really included us BUT deliberately ‘erased our past’ to promote assimilation. Prophecy was at work: Isa 65:15 “And you shall leave your name for a curse unto my chosen…”
By changing our names to their European surnames - - which we are told would be a “curse” to us -- we were denied the right to comprehend our true past thereby assuring that we did not return to it. Thus, the shadow of the Negro, so to speak, was more real to him than his true self. With each step of assimilation, we’ve grown more unaware of America’s historical unrighteousness that is ever-so-present today concerning our own people’s welfare. With each step, the more blind to truth we’ve become and have actually forgotten that while America identifies herself to be a Christ-like nation, [as the word ‘Christian” implies], as a nation, we have not only experienced the opposite, but we joined onto the hypocrisy; believed in it and DEFENDED it. Like a true Daughter [Protestant] of Roman Catholic Popery [and the religious-political beast that it will soon control], George Bush continues to fund his faith-based Christian [Catholic] initiatives parading as a lamb while speaking with the same forked-tongue as The Dragon. He has allowed Hispanics to flood American shores, as American assemblies address racial inequities with “lip service” while systematically eliminating Affirmative Action to assure unemployment and inequities. But it’s nothing new. From our sharecropping days to the present, the unemployment rate for Blacks has always been twice the rate of Whites. Even in the midst of the Civil Rights Movement, IN GOOD TIMES AND BAD, the unemployment and incarceration Source: U. S. Department of Labor

rates were disproportionate between Blacks and Whites. As America broadcasts the unequal treatment and exploding incarceration rates within “the Justice System” [or the Just-Us System as we’ve come to know it], she makes it easy for us to believe the lies. As she continues to build the prisons to imprison us, “prison culture” has become all too familiar among Black Men so much so that the rate of HIV infections among Black Men having sex with other men has increased by 38%. This trend is consistent among all Black men [incarcerated or not] and includes those whom are married with families. This has caused the U.S. National rate of HIV infections among Blacks to jump to an alarming rate of 50%, according to the Center For Disease Control (CDC). Our assimilation into their Euro-Gentile customs has caused us to not only remain blind to our own culture and identity, but we are blind to those sacrifices that YHWH DEMANDS from us individually and as a nation. Our understanding has remained disconnected from YHWH [the only source of true wisdom] and so, we have become disjointed from one another. Thus, our people are blind to and unprepared for The Time of Jacob’s Trouble that according to scripture is directed at our people and is right around the corner. This means we are also blind to the great hope in the prophecies about us and our future: Elohim has not cast away his people which he foreknew [Rom 11:2]. Arise [dry bones], shine; for your light is come, and the Glory of YHWH is risen upon you. For, look, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but YHWH shall arise up on you, and His Glory shall be seen upon you.. And the Gentiles shall come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your rising. Lift up your eyes round about [you who were blind], and see: all they gather themselves together, they come to you: your sons shall come from afar, and your daughters shall be nursed at your side. Then you shall: (1) see, and (2) flow together, and (3) your heart shall fear, and (4) be enlarged; BECAUSE the abundance of the sea [people] shall be converted unto you, the forces [wealth] of the Gentiles shall come unto you”. Isaiah 60:1-5
More Jews Return/The Pope CONT’D FROM MANIFESTATION PT 1 Forced aboard ships that were little more than floating coffins, millions of [so-called] Africans were caught in a global transatlantic trade fiercely driven by greed. Proof of this can be found in the advertisements of Europeans for Negro slaves--having referred to them as “Black Ivory” and “Black Gold”. The W atchm an – The U nited Congregation of Israel
How did this tragedy occur? And why isn’t this worldwide commercial event [and complete devastation to a people that lasted for centuries] not found in scripture? Oh, but it is!! Like a starved man, Africa devoured Israel/Negroes then spewed her forth throughout the world. Prophecy foretold the tribes of Judah, Benjamin and Levi in the Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade and more. Joel 3:6-7 “The children of Judah and the children of Jerusalem have you sold to the Grecians [Gentiles], that you might remove them far from their border. Behold, I will raise them out of the place where you have sold them, and will return your recompense upon your own head.”
The bible (and its prophecies) account for and verifies our ancient existence, our modern-day lives, and our future. The Middle Passage/Diaspora was the final phase of our enslavement, but a series of dominations and enslavements) account for and verifies our ancient existence, our modern-day lives, and our future. The Middle Passage/Diaspora was the final phase of our enslavement, but a series of dominations and enslavements by several nations had occurred thousands of years before America. Jer 2:14 “Is Israel a servant? Is he a home-born slave? Why is he spoiled?”
Unknown to African Americans, our history beyond America reflects a history of a people who refused to turn whole-heartedly back to YHWH. In chastisement, we first served these nations: Egypt 80-100 years, Exodus Mesopotamia, 8 years, Judges 3:8 Moabites, 18 years, Judges 3:12-14 Canaanites, 20 years, Judges 4:2-3 Midianites, 7 years, Judges 6:1 Philistines 18 years, Judges 10:7-8 Philistines 40 years, Judges 13:1 Assyria 237 years, 850- 613 B.C. (10 lost tribes were then scattered)
Babylon 70 years, 587-538 B.C. *Medo-Persia, 205 years, 539-331 B.C. *Greece 395 years, 331-63 B.C. *Rome, 413 years, 63 B.C.- 476 A.D. [Rome sacked Jerusalem in 70 A.D.]
*European Nations (Medes/Russians are Europeans, not Persia)
In the United States, African Americans [ancient Jews whom ARE Black], are not The W atchm an – The U nited Congregation of Israel
reckoned as the ORIGINAL JEW, but are termed "Black Hebrews". [The individuals actually refer to themselves as "Hebrews", "Israelites" or "Hebrew-Israelites]." Branded with the name “Black Hebrew Israelites” by the pre-dominantly White media some decades ago, the problem with the term is that it attempts to normalize the "whiteness" of the word “Jew” [which is short for Judah]. Identifying Jews as “black” is an artifact of past history when white synagogues [i.e., Israelis] refused to accept Blacks as Jews –- when in fact, there are many of the Middle East who will tell you they have never seen a ‘”white Jew”. But the Middle East [Israel specifically] is not only the center of the earth, but both have become the center of social, political, religious and military attention in recent news. Socially, it drew Bobby Brown and wife, Whitney Houston to visit with The Black Hebrew Israelites living in Israel. These Black Hebrews left America in 1969 and established a colony in Liberia before arriving in Israel in 1974. They had been denied citizenship status in Israel since arriving in ‘74 because they are not considered “True Jews”. [Isn’t it ironic and a mirror image deception of Satan that a “false Jew” would call a “true Jew”, false? Rev 3:9]. Isaiah 14:13-14 “For you have said in your heart…I will sit also upon the MOUNT OF THE CONGREGATION, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like The Most High.”
That status suddenly changed in January 2004 when they were granted full citizenship, but now the same issue surrounds the 20,000 Falasha Mura Jews left starving in Ethiopia. February’s 2004 News-Max.Com article identified Ethiopian/Nubian [or Falasha] Jews as being actual descendants of ancient Jews. [The Falasha Jewess pictured above is adorned exactly as the bible describes our adornment; rings, bracelets, earrings, head and nose-jewels, headscarves (wimples) Eze 16:11-12 & Isa 3:19-23]. FALASHA JEW
Unlike The Falasha Jews [who can trace their lineage back for hundreds of years on end], Falasha Mura Jews said they were forced to abandon Judaism for Christianity during the 19th century Crusades, but are now returning to their true heritage. The Israelis and the 80,000 Falasha in Israel both reject them as true Jews and because of their broken-lineage, they are ineligible for automatic citizenship. The Falasha [Alien resident] Jews were secretly airlifted to Israel in 1984 and again in 1991 in The Secret Exodus called Operation Moses. Religiously, the big news in Israel surrounds the
The W atchm an – The U nited Congregation of Israel
Pope. After having visited Israel in the first few weeks of January 2004, by January 19, 2004, The Pope had quickly returned to The Vatican where he Bobby, asked the “liberal, hippie-like” Arch Whitney Bishop of Canterbury, Church of & Ariel Sharon England [head of Global Christian Angelicans] to begin the steps of accepting the primacy of the Pope. [George Bush won the U.S. Presidency with the Angelican vote]. Angelicans were asked to take their biggest steps to wards joining to accept The Pope AS INFALLIABLE. The notion of the infallibility of The Pope is the driving force behind the ancient rift between Protestants and Roman Catholics]. But having quickly “planted seeds” of Christian Unity with Israelis and Palestinians while in Israel, to show his determination in establishing his “global unity”, The Pope Archbishop of consented to a meeting with Israelis to Canterbury discuss allowing them to view Vatican Secret Archives. [Israel’s temple treasures are among millions of items that Roman Catholics took from the temple when Titus sacked Jerusalem in 70 A.D]. The Pope
Dan 11:21 “And in his estate shall stand up a vile person, to whom they shall not give the honor of the kingdom: but he shall come in peaceably, and obtain the kingdom by flatteries”.
But also in news surrounding Pope, is the news that scholars [mostly Catholic] have completely deciphered all the Dead Sea scroll fragments. The last scroll called “The Copper Scroll” [note the color] was one of the first scrolls to be deciphered but was sealed until all the scrolls could be deciphered’; [and as the Catholic Church said many years ago, ‘until the time is right’]. The implication of this event is that The Copper Scroll is said to contain specific information on the exact location of many of Israel’s treasures. In addition, the media has speculated that The Copper Scroll, once published, will reveal some “faith-shaking” propaganda that will put the final blow to Christianity allowing ‘New Age’-ism [and no God-ism’] to replace The GOD [Elohim] of Israel; bringing the culmination of wickedness upon all creation. For ages, it has been Satan’s desire to sit upon the throne of Yahweh. Once thrown from heaven, he will establish his headquarters in Jerusalem, through The Pope of Rome, albeit this one or the next. The Middle East Peace Plan is on schedule to The W atchm an – The U nited Congregation of Israel
be revealed by December 2005, but some believe some “propaganda” [like the contents of the Copper Scroll] could spark this powder keg to explode before then. A good choice [and in accordance with scripture] would be a sacrifice upon the Temple Mount! But, will it be made by the Muslims [as some believe] igniting Israeli [& Christian] outrage all over the globe? Of course, if this happened, America would jump to The Israelis’ aid. Playing the role of Globo-Cop [she would spread herself even more thin] leaving her own back door unprotected and vulnerable to surprise. But what about Daniel 9:27 which says that “for the over spreading of abominations”, the daily sacrifice is stopped. It shall be made desolate by having the “Abomination of Desolation” set up in the holy place. Falsely representing the “Prince of Peace”, The Pope is an ideal candidate for establishing an emblem of peace via united European Community Cooperation. By flatteries [stupendous EC lies], this false prophet can easily confirm a masterful Peace Plan [covenant] for 7 years with “many nations” and set up his headquarters “in the sides of the north”. And since he could [virtually, by peace, and as the Ambassador” of it], CONTROL the Temple Mount, it’s likely that the Israelis may skeptically tolerate him. In the middle of the 3½ years, when Satan is thrown permanently from heaven, this false prophet will use this event [through his occult powers] to perform miracles. By causing fire to come down from heaven in the sight of men, he would thereby prove that the Messiah has returned. We know that BILLIONS will be deceived and believe in this AntiChrist and follow him: "ALL the world wondered after the Beast"Rev.13:3! The Israelis are the best candidate for a “literal” sacrifice be-cause they are very likely to believe that only the “true” Messiah could re-capture the Mount, cause the temple to be rebuilt, and thus, would ‘sacrifice’ to [worship] him. According to scripture, Jerusalem is a place to FLEE from, not to return to, at this time. The Falasha Jews and the Hebrew Israelites have returned to the Holy Land by their own hands and those of The Nations; not by the hands of YHWH!! Isaiah 45:20-22 "Assemble yourselves and come; Draw near together, You who have escaped The W atchm an – The U nited Congregation of Israel
from the nations… Look to Me, and be saved, all you ends of the earth.” Isaiah 52:9-12 “Break forth into joy, sing together, you waste places of Jerusalem; YHWH has comforted His people, He hath redeemed Jerusalem. YHWH hath made bare his holy arm in the eyes of all the nations…all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of Our GOD; depart you…go you out from there; touch no unclean thing; be you clean, YOU THAT BEAR THE VESSELS [GIFTS] OF YHWH. FOR YOU SHALL NOT GO OUT WITH HASTE, nor go by flight: for YHWH WILL GO BEFORE YOU; the Elohim of Israel will be your reward”.
We are nearing the time of The Great Deception to the extent that if we are not supernaturally protected by YHWH; [led to the wilderness and then taken to The Secret Place], how shall African Americans stand?? “You called in trouble, and I delivered you; I answered you in the secret place of thunder: I proved you at the waters of Meribah”. Psa 81:7 [We shall explore our land and the wilderness in a future issue of The Hebrew Y’israel Lite entitled: ZION, THE LAND & THE PEOPLE]. “Now, why do you cry out aloud? Is there no king in you? Is your counselor perished? For [birth] pangs have taken you as a woman in labor. Be in pain, labor [WORK] to bring forth, O Daughter of Zion [Judah]…for now shall you go forth out of the city…you shall go even to Babylon [America]…THERE YHWH SHALL REDEEM YOU FROM YOUR ENEMIES-Micah 4:610.
The prophecies given to the prophet Ezekiel [spoken in YHWH’s own words -Ezek 37:21-28] give us great understanding and HOPE for the future of African Americans [and their coming time of GLORY]: “Look, I will take the children of Israel from among the heathen, where they be gone, and will gather them on every side, and bring them into their own land: “Look, I WILL MAKE THEM ONE NATION IN THE LAND UPON THE MOUNTAINS OF ISRAEL; And one king shall be king to them all…so shall they be my people, and I will be their Elohim…they will also walk in my judgments and observe - my statutes [LAWS], and do them…They shall dwell in the land that I have given unto Jacob my servant, wherein your fathers have dwelt… even they, and their children, and their children’s children for ever: and my servant David shall be their prince forever. Also, I will make a covenant of peace with them; it shall be an ever-lasting covenant. I will be their Elohim, and they shall be my people. And the heathen shall know that I, YHWH, do sanctify Israel, when my sanctuary shall be in the midst of them for evermore” - Eze 37:21-28. The W atchm an – The U nited Congregation of Israel
We are still the apple of YHWH’s eye and thus, the cup in which America has given us to drink, she will soon drink double of YHWH’s recompense. How many of our people will cleave to her and drink? The failure of U.S. religious, political, social, economic and judicial policies [and how they affect us] are the sounds of her impending doom. “I will also make it a possession for the bittern, and pools of water: I will sweep it with the besom [broom] of destruction”, said YHWH of Hosts”. Isa 14:23 77 tornadoes swept across the U.S. on May 22, 2004. A total of 100 touched down that weekend which included flooding in the nearby Caribbean Islands that left 3,300 people dead and hundreds missing. The very next weekend, CNN News reported 175 tornadoes in the U.S. and admitted, “they’ve only just begun”. Will her ways and sins be your demise??
Calls The Living “The princes, the governors, and captains, the judges, the treasurers, the counselors, the sheriffs, and all the rulers of the provinces, were gathered together unto the DEDICATION OF THE IMAGE that Nebuchadnezzar the king had set up…” Daniel 3:3
A nyone who believes that man-kind is a long way off from worshipping a man and the The W atchm an – The U nited Congregation of Israel
image he will set up, has obviously never heard of The Cult of Saint Death [La Santa Muerte]. The image of Saint Death, known as ‘the skinny girl’ or ‘the white girl’, is a “dead ringer” for the Grim Reaper according to The Atlanta Journal, March 10, 2004. Devotees of the image, like those in Mexico City, WORSHIP her as a motherly angel of mercy, treat her like a queen, and are quick to tell you they see no contradiction between being good Catholics and praying the ‘mystery of the rosary’ to their idol despite the Catholic church’s warning to their Roman Catholic hierarchy that it is “gravely erroneous and satanic”. The cult, whose name also means “Sacred Death”, began in the mid-1960’s and has spread from Mexico to the United States [especially in Los Angeles, New York and other border towns and cities] because it represents violent death; the ‘fate’ of thousands. The larger-than-life image of a ‘grinning skeleton is credited with miracles of every sort from healing to the death of ones’ enemies which can only occur after an offering to the idol has been made. The cult draws devotees of every walk of life from thieves, prostitutes, prisoners and drug traffickers to those of high society who roll up to the shrines in expensive cars leaving offerings of flowers, candy, apples, wads of cash, and even a Rolex watch on one occasion]. But the largest growing sector of devotees are ‘the humble’ and those of the working class who have attempted to lead lawabiding lives, but have become enormously disillusioned with the establishment and justice in society that is also experiencing a growing number of corrupt police and politicians. Homero Aridjis, a Mexican novelist, wrote his latest book, La Santa Muerte, [The Saint of Death] a series of stories, after stumbling across a shrine to Saint Death when he received a mysterious fax inviting him to attend a drug lord’s birthday party. At the event, he wandered among politicians, AK 47toting bodyguards, businessmen bearing exotic gifts and beautiful women circulating trays of cocaine. “It’s a complex cult”, Aridjis said, that is reflective of alienation with the Catholic Church. “People are tired of being told what to do, then are asked to give money and get no-thing back”. The article indicated that images of grinning skeletons are not unusual in Mexico, where the Day of The Dead is one of the biggest celebrations of the year. [Memorial Day is also such a day in the U.S. that honors the dead]. Pre-Columbian cultures in Mexico revered gods of death, and when the Spanish arrived, Catholic priests often fused those traditions with Christianity. While the earth is awaiting the manifestation of Israel’s rebirth, the manifestation of the Son of Perdition must be revealed first. It may seem strange to many that the whole world will give this kind of worship to the image of a man, but cults that exist in the 21st Century [like St. Death] are great examples of the reality of this prophecy. The image of the beast will be animated supernaturally in some way [technological manner], so it has breath and can speak. This is The Abomination of Desolation of Dan 9:27; Matt 24:15; 2 Thes 2:3-4). It’ll be an idolatrous image set up in the holy place representing supreme idolatry The W atchm an – The U nited Congregation of Israel
that will bring the judgments of YHWH upon mankind that are described by the seals, trumpets, and vials. This prophecy is approaching and it’s coming fast!!!
“And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up, and lift up your heads; for your redemption draws nigh. And he spoke to them a parable; Behold the fig tree [Israel], and all the trees [nations] on earth; When they now shoot, KNOW of your own selves that SUMMER is now nigh at hand. So likewise ye, when ye see these things come to pass, know you that the kingdom of GOD [Elohim] is nigh at hand”. Luke 21:28-31
Speaking largely, and in general, on single parent families, a USA Today article entitled, “For Many Blacks, Family Tree Long Splintered” indicated, “if you want to find the ‘roots of the black family pattern, you have to go back further”. Truer words could not have been spoken!! Recommending that we go back to the 1960s, the article indicated that ‘cultural differences’ between Black and White families caused a breakdown of the Black family structure. A report [at that time] issued by former Sen. Dan Moynihan, [Democrat, N.Y.] blamed ‘black culture’ as the reason the black community broke-out with the “pathological” nature that it has. Thus, black culture [and the black family] fell out of favor with the ‘politically correct’ and became a subject to avoid among blacks themselves!! As a nation of people, first forced to abandon our culture, we’ve always so easily abandoned [what was left of] our culture for the cultures we saw in our neighbors’ backyards; [engrafting ourselves into Nebuchadnezzar’s Babylonian tree that spread its branches over the earth]. Our people simply cannot continue to believe that our ‘family tree’ is missing the names of our forefathers by mere coincidence while the evidence is all around us!!! [‘The pagan branches, as well as the branches from “the tree of righteous”, are shooting forth their leaves]. Going further back, but this time back to bible days, we will be able to see our heritage, if we just look truth squarely in the face.

Ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free. John 8:32
In W.E.B DuBois’ article, The Strivings of the Negro People, he began by describing Black Americans/The Negro as a sort of ‘7th son. DuBois said, “After the Egyptian” (son of Ham/African) “and Indian, the Greek, Roman, Teuton and Mongolian” (sons of Japheth/ Gentiles), he stated that the Negro was “gifted” and born with the ability to “see” (prophesy). He describes his own vision of his people as a double-consciousness (double-mindedness) in his ideals; calling it “peculiar” place for us to be. For you are a holy people unto the LORD [YHWH] your God, and YHWH hath chosen thee to be a peculiar people unto himself, above all the nations that are upon the earth. Deut 14:2
“Two warring ideals, two un-reconciled strivings, whereby one has such a dogged strength, it alone keeps it our people from being torn asunder”, DuBois wrote. The history of the American Negro is the history of this strife, -- longing to merge his double-self into a better and truer self. He does not wish to Africanize America, he does not wish to bleach his Negro blood in a flood of white Americanism, for he believes – fervently -- that Negro blood has yet a message for the world [yet he assimilates and follows the carnal man]. It is a light thing that thou shouldest be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob…to restore the preserved of Israel: I will also give thee for a light to the Gentiles, that thou mayest be my salvation unto the end of the earth. Isaiah 49:6 The would-be Black-savant [member of a scholarly group] was confronted by the paradox t hat the knowledge his people needed to teach his White [Gentile] audience was a twice-told tale that was like Greek” [FOREIGN] “to his own flesh and blood.
My people are destroyed for lack of of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will will also forget thy children…Therefore will I change their glory into shame. Hosea 4:6-7 “The love of harmony and beauty that sets the rudder of the souls” of our people a-dancing, a-singing, and a-praising raised confusion in the Black artist yet, he could not articulate the message of another people. As he articulated what he knew, though the beauty revealed to him, he could see he [definitely] has the ‘soulbeauty’ of a race [tribe] which his larger audience envied and yet despised. “Considerest thou not what this people have spoken, saying, The two families which YHWH hath chosen [Israel & Judah], he hath even cast them off? thus they have despised my The W atchm an – The U nited Congregation of Israel
people, that they should be no more a nation before them”. Jer 33:24 This waste of double aims, this seeking to satisfy two un-reconciled ideals, [struggling to find his purpose, his message, [this knowledge] wrought said havoc with the courage, faith and deeds of our people, and has “sent them often wooing false gods and invoking false means of salvation, and has even at times seemed destined to make them ashamed of themselves”, DuBois wrote. For they went and served other gods, and worshipped them, gods whom they knew not, and whom he had not given unto them: And the anger of the LORD was kindled against this land, to bring upon it all the curses that are written in this book: And the LORD rooted them out of their land in anger, and in wrath, and in great indignation, and cast them into another land, as it is this day. Deut 29:26-28 Then you shalt remember your ways, and be ashamed…Ezek 16:61
In The Parable of The Fig Tree, as mentioned in Mathew 24, a whole chapter’s dedicated to Yahshua’s description of his own 2nd coming which also concerns knowing the Signs of The Time. Creation was designed by YHWH Elohim [not Mother Nature] so that a tender tender plant will put forth leaves in the spring. A few months later [in the summer] there is supposed to be fruit. From Genesis 1, mankind was commanded be fruitful and multiply reproducing the same fruit [productive believers] that usually does not fall far from the tree. YHWH wants, expects and demands fruitfulness. This is why Yahshua cursed the tree that had no fruit [our forefathers/natural Israel]. Just as the natural body requires nourishment, the Holy Spirit feeds believers so that they should put forth more fruit thereby feeding other believers. A good tree [Spiritual Israel] must bear fruit in due season. This fig tree will give fruit [or figs] in one day, our nation will be rebuilt having their hearts turned back to YHWH by the Two Witnesses of Zech 4 [Two Olive Trees– also signifying Israel]. These two prophets found in Rev 11 are two angels manifested in human form. Matt 21:19 “And when he saw a fig tree in the way, he came to it, and found nothing thereon, but leaves only, and said unto it, Let no fruit grow on thee henceforward for ever. And presently the fig tree withered away.
In the days of bondage, they thought to see, “in one divine event”, the end of all disappointment. In a direct quote from the article, DuBois said, “To him [the Negro] slavery was, indeed, the sum of all villainies, the cause of all sorrow, the root of all prejudice; and emancipation was
The W atchm an – The U nited Congregation of Israel
the key to a promised land of sweeter beauty than ever stretched before the eyes of wearied Israelites”. [Well, was DuBois comparing the Negro to Israelites? Or is he telling the Negro who he is???!!} Through his curses (put upon him), and in his tears, he knew the GOD he implored had freedom in his right hand, so his (slave) songs and exhortations swelled one refrain – freedom!” The voice of rejoicing and salvation is in the tabernacles of the righteous: the right hand of the LOR D [Y H W H ] doeth valiantly Psalm s 118:15 (K JV )
Shout, O children! Shout, you're free! The Lord [YHWH] has bought your liberty! DuBois continued…
“But, the ‘freedman’ has not yet found in freedom his promised land. Whatever of lesser good may have come in these years of change, the shadow of a deep disappointment rests upon the Negro people, -- a disappointment all the more bitter. The first decade was merely a prolongation of the vain search for freedom, the boon [reward] that seemed ever so close, eluded their grasp, maddening and misleading “the headless host” [of Black people]. “The holocaust of war, the terrors of the Ku Klux Klan, the lies of carpetbaggers, the disorganization of industry, and the contradictory advice of friends and foes left the bewildered serf [Negro] with no new watchword beyond the old cry for ‘FREEDOM’. It was weary work. To the tired climbers, the horizon was ever dark, the mists were often cold, the Canaan was always dim and far away. In those somber forests [wilderness] of his striving in his own soul rose before him, and he saw himself--darkly as through a veil; and yet he saw in himself some faint revelation of his power…his mission. He began to have a dim feeling that, to attain his place in the world, he must be himself, and not another. For the first time he sought to analyze the burden he bore upon his back, that dead-weight of social degradation partially masked behind a half-named Negro problem. He felt his poverty; without a cent, without a home, without land, tools, or savings, he had entered into competition with rich landed, skilled neighbors. To be a poor man is hard, but to be a poor race [tribe] in a land of dollars” [and nonsense] “is the very bottom of hardships. The accumulated sloth and shirking and backwardness of decades and centuries shackled his hands and feet [then were removed to be replaced by “the systematic shackling of his mind”]. Nor was his burden all poverty and ignorance, but his burden was a nameless kind of prejudice [CURSES PUT UPON US] that would discourage any nation, EXCEPT that Black Host to whom "discouragement" appears to be an unwritten word [BECAUSE THEY ARE BEING HELD UP BY THEIR ROCK]. “And so, they still press on, adversity on every corner and flowing like a stream, they still nurse the dogged hope, hope of a higher synthesis of civilization and humanity, a true The W atchm an – The U nited Congregation of Israel
progress, with the chorus ‘Peace, Goodwill to Men,’. Today, there is no true American culture and no true American music, but the sweet wild [sweet soulful] melodies of the Negro Slave”. Repeating that last paragraph, considering all that has been revealed about our people [and according to prophecy and scripture], it should have said, “ …And so, they press on [are lead on by the Rock of Ages], holding onto [faith] those visions [prophecies] of a better place, of rivers and streams [land of milk and honey], with words of Peace and blessings [Shalom] to all creation on their lips, and with rest [millennial rest] and righteousness [en-joining of the everlasting New Covenant written firmly] in their hearts. We are told we are a nation that shall be “SOUGHT OUT” [Isa 62:12]… a nation to whom other nations will “CLING TO” and we have been given the reason why:
Isa 55:5 “Behold…nations that knew not you shall RUN UNTO YOU because of YHWH YOUR ELOHIM, and FOR the Holy One of Israel; because HE HAS GLORIFIED YOU”.
The decay of capitalism on a world scale and the struggle of Black people, has precipitated a tremendous battle for the minds of our people. DuBois said, “Negro people, they’re asleep”. Our potential lies in our true identity and the GOD who chose us as servants to serve Him. Black people know [more those on the outside looking in through [living life in this skin], that we were not chosen because we were better than other nations…far from it. According to the entire chapter of Ezekiel 16, we appear to be the worse!! [See this parable of a wretched infant shown in the natural-born state of Israel & Judah and the comparison of their ways to those of pagan nations]. But, in spite of ourselves, we were still chosen anyway by a SOVEREIGN GOD who has the right to chose. Are all of these things simply coincidence, or are these the realities of the Negro who knows not whom he is?? Thus, we can taste the lack of salt in the earth to this day!!
