Mark 4:3 & 26 – Hearken; Behold, there went out a sower to sow:….&…..So is the kingdom of God, as if a man should cast seed into the ground;
The circumstances in our present world; international intrigue, ethnicity issues, race relations, politics, violence, lawlessness, and the myriad of issues we may consider just social or moral ALL have spiritual roots. And in those arenas where we have forgotten the spiritual basis of their origin, and attempted to deal with them from a completely natural, carnal perspective, we will not only have not true solutions, but we will only see them get worse until they are addressed with the truth of their origin. Let’s unveil the truth of these origins so we can stop wasting our time, talent, and treasures on false targets. The problem problems we presently face in our world that have been assigned to racial matters, political matters, even religious matters, are all, in truth spiritual matters.
Let’s look at racial issues. Every human being on this planet came from one parent set – Adam and Eve. That should be the end of the story. All human beings are of ONE race – the human race. Yes, there are many ethnicities, but that recognition arose from division. The name, Adam, means “red man.” From the base color of red, one can derive every skin tone of every ethnicity on the planet. It simply means that all mankind has arisen from one set of parents, Adam and Eve, with Adam being formed from the soil, and Eve being formed from the rib of Adam. The source of both original parents was the soil of this earth, and the life source of both of them was Jehovah God. Regardless of ethnicity, skin color, or any other distinguishable feature, we all bleed the same color blood, and every ethnicity has within it individual whose blood type may vary; O, A, B, AB, and of those four, either positive or negative. And any given blood type, regardless of the ethnicity from which it flows, can flow and function in any other person, regardless of ethnicity, in the world.
From the basic truths I have just shared, even a cursory look at history through the ages should indicate to any reasonable person that racism as we know it, that is division and contention that arises because of skin color is totally a cultural creation. It does not naturally occur. While anecdotal reports are not accepted as scientific, there are enough accounts to give full credence to that truth that racism is not a natural thing. Racism is a learned behavior, and has been so well learned by many people that it appears to be completely natural. It is not. And for it to exist at any level, it must be learned, but it was released in the earth as a spiritual condition that led to dividing what God intended to live in harmony – mankind.
