CHRISTIANS REPENTING FOR BEING WHITE

Let me bid a fond farewell to some of you who will read this. Because after some of you read this, you will not read anything I write, again.

Also,  there will be many who will comment that “no one is asking anyone to repent of being white.” I was in a large stadium in front of tens of thousands of young people when a preacher said this, “I know none of you ever owned slaves. I know that none of you were around for segregation. But I want you to know, I FORGIVE YOU!” What else could he be forgiving them for except that they were white? In many other forms, some more subtle repenting of whiteness is precisely what they demand. And many, out of guilt, are glad to oblige.

There is no doubt that the actions of one police officer were heinous. There is no question that we should all be outraged at anyone who believes in murdering someone, simply because of the color of their skin. As a nation we must stand together to rid ourselves of the scourge of hatred.

But will the way we are going about it make any difference? And why are Christians acting weird?

Something strange is in the neighborhood: Christians and preachers who have yet to repent before God for a. grieving the Holy Spirit; b. for preaching an artificial Gospel; or c. for their silence on abortion and sexual sin are, instead, repenting for being white.

They are reading a script handed them from the Left. They are not repenting of slavery, segregation, Jim Crow Laws, or racist cops. They are repenting of whiteness.

Asking someone to apologize for being white is as odious as asking a black person to repent for being black. The color of one’s skin does not make them racist. I will go so far as to say that believing racism comes from the color of someone’s skin, is itself racist—the very worst kind of racism.

Nazi’s hated Jews, not because of anything they had done, but merely for being Jews. How is this emerging idea about the crime of ‘whiteness’ any different? I don’t care who you are, do you want to sow that seed into the heart of your child? And where will it end?

This tactic is not new. Some years ago, feminist scientists decided that testosterone was evil. In other words, manhood is intrinsically evil. They actually had a plan for eradicating your husbands, sons, brothers, fathers, and grandfathers. The current term is ‘toxic masculinity’.

Does someone need to explain Marxism to you again? Leftists need to incite blind rage. Everywhere a Communist revolution has taken place, it was fueled by hate. It identified certain groups as deserving any and all punishment. Again, not for what they had ever done, but simply because of who they were.

Chinese Communism identified Christians as evil and slaughtered them. In other countries they slaughtered Buddhists. At this hour, a great horror is unfolding in India where hundreds of Churches are being burned and Christians are being forced to engage in animism.

How many ways can I tell you that leftists do not really care about you? They need you, as Americans, to be in such a blind rage, that you will not see what they are doing behind your back. For decades Democrats have had unquestioned power over our inner cities. You want to talk about supremacy? That is supremacy! And what have they done for those citizens? What became of the trillions of dollars sent to those places to improve them? Show me a city run by Democrats for decades, and I will show you a city in decay.

On the same weekend that we honored George Floyd, 28 murders in the black sections of Chicago went unnoticed. Do black lives really matter to the media?

The Left, like locusts, move on to a new field after they have consumed the old field. Right now, the Left has set its sights on Latinos. That’s because there are more of us. Next, they will get us angry and grieved. They want Latino children to feel like victims. They will leave the Black community behind as soon as their votes don’t matter anymore.

What does all this anger and rage do to us? It causes inner city children to waste time—time they could use to build a future. Villains have forced them to put their lives on hold—to make them feel victimized—to enrage them to do acts of violence. And when that crime is permanently on their record, and when that moment of rage has ruined their chances for a career…do you think any of these Marxists are going to come around and fix their family?

Shame on these Christians who won’t pray right or repent correctly. What an offense to a heart-broken God Who is trying to save our nation, that you would engage in Pharisaical grandstanding, just to look ‘woke’ in the eyes of those we should never try to impress.

But it is not too late! You can turn that pseudo-repentance into true repentance. God can expose the Left, the evil they are doing, and their long-term goals. Right now, America is sick of the division and the hatred—and they do not care anymore where that hatred is coming from. Americans do not want to replace old hate with new hate, or old racism for new racism.

The only force that is able to save America is the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The only love that can stop the crushing cycle of oppression and hatred is the love of God. My dear brothers and sisters in Christ, now that you realize your need for repenting…for God’s sake, don’t repent for being white, repent for sinning against the Lord.

THE ANSWER TO FEAR: BURN IT OUT!

Closing the altars, ordering people to tone it down, and focusing on recovery programs brought a crowd.  However, what if that crowd leaves with no power to face our toxic culture?

By Mario Murillo

Right now we are awash in advisory sermons. The titles are similar and predictable: “How to handle fear, uncertainty, finances, relationships, marriage, and children.”   We are drowning in whiteboards, blackboards, statistics, PowerPoint presentations, props, and illustrations.

The problem is, with all the anger, division, loud perversion and persecution, teachers find their instructive messages woefully inadequate.  What happened?  The answer is…life.   Life happened and it is gripping believers with fear.  This is a new kind of fear coming from the screaming villains, who now have an out-sized influence.

Happy face sermons do not give power over a time like this.   What is happening now runs off the over-optimistic maps drawn in pulpits. Tragedies can uproot neat formulas like a palm tree in a hurricane.   Hip theories will collapse like a brick house in an earthquake.

Every honest Pastor can report causalities in their church.  Many who were once vibrant soldiers, today languish in a shadow existence.  They are out of church, disconnected from their former passion and sick in body and soul.  The ongoing political debate and demonstrations have only added to the crisis. The conflicting opinions of church leaders leave the army of God baffled and vulnerable.

Leaders have brought a lot of this on themselves.  The culture changed dramatically in the last few months.  The American pulpit has not.

Why are we surprised that modern believers suddenly need more?  The power that could answer a thousand questions and extinguish a myriad of personality ills has been ushered out of church.

Closing the altars, ordering people to tone it down, and focusing on recovery programs indeed brought in a crowd.  However, what is the end game if the crowd leaves as weak as they came—and in some cases weaker—without power to face our culture?

Paul’s cure was simple: an undeniable encounter with the fire of God…”that your faith should not rest in the wisdom of men but in the power of God. -1 Corinthians 2: 5.

The answer to fear today is to burn it out!  Just for shock value, I’ll use this phrase…perfect love casts out fear but so does perfect fear.  No doubt many will think it is crazy to take a wonderful verse like 1 John 4:18 “perfect love casts out fear” and mess it up.  But I am not messing it up I am fulfilling it!

PERFECT FEAR DOES CAST OUT FEAR!  We have downplayed and even banned something that Christians desperately need.

Go back with me to 758 B.C.  Isaiah the prophet enters the Temple in fear for his life.  The tide of public opinion has turned against him.  The death of his friend and protector King Uzziah has put the finishing touch on 5 years of ministry that was just treading water.  His despair is now complete. He is enters the Temple looking for comfort from God.

He kneels in prayer, resting his elbows on the altar seeking solace from the storm. Instead, the building starts quaking, knocking his elbows so that he is now punching himself in the face.

He looks up and sees Seraphim:  Angels of fire, fire that burns hotter and brighter than any sun. They tower over him from each end of the altar.

Their voices roar, vibrate, boom and dislodge the mighty beams of the Temple!  “HOLY, HOLY, HOLY, IS THE LORD GOD ALMIGHTY.  THE WHOLE EARTH IS FILLED WITH HIS GLORY!”  Back and forth, again and again, they blast this mighty proclamation until Isaiah could not bear the fright!

The mighty God Himself stands before Isaiah unfurling the indescribable train of His Glory!  The prophet convulses beneath weight of glory.  From his bone marrow came an all-consuming cry… “WOE IS ME!”

Isaiah

The startling effect of the Glory of God—a wonder working fear—overrules human fear.   No threat matters now.   This demonstration of Glory conquered his suffering.   Isn’t this exactly what Paul meant?: “For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.” -Romans 8:18.   Of course Paul is speaking of the final GLORY…but it is a part of our birthright to have earthly collisions of glory: “But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all.”-1 Corinthians 12: 7   An overarching, fear destroying encounter is the legacy of every child of God.  “But the manifestation of the Spirit is given to each one for the profit of all

The twelve disciples were gripped by fear of the storm.  But when Jesus rebuked the storm their fear of drowning was replaced with an awestruck wonder.  They exclaimed: “what manner of man is this that even the wind and the sea obey Him!?”

We are told that General Patton won battles because his men were more afraid of him than the Germans.   Again, ours is not a negative fear but the  holy awe born from the manifestation of God’s glory.

This truth reinforces the fact that “Perfect love casts out Fear”  because love disciplines, love gives us what we need… and what we need today is a subtle pat on the head.   We need a fear-killing encounter!  Solomon said in Proverbs 9:10 “The fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom.”

raw bravery

 

Why are we blocking people from experiencing the fire of God?  Why would we keep this miracle from people?   I am talking about fire—fire that keeps them from the evil one—fire that forges a reverence, and turns them into your best soldiers

We should have made room and time for people to be filled to prevailing levels of the Holy Spirit and fire.  If we had, we would not be nursing hordes of Christians on life support. We would have an unstoppable army!

There is still time to reverse course.  If you have never been drenched by God then obey Him and seek to be overcome by His Glory.  If you have received in the past now is the time for FRESH FIRE!
