TO: YOU KNOW WHO
It should go without question the true intent of this letter – unless – somehow we lost our connection along the way. Never once did I imagine a smooth ride in this crisis, and my wish is that you’ll stick around despite the delay. I know the turbulence is frightening; shots firing at every direction – it seems nothing is going right. They’re passing the needle around like it’s a miracle but there’s breakthrough cases. I know surprising right? And now they’re trying to suppress voter’s rights while killing the Black Man. Some Trinitarian strategy I’m sure of. I’m writing this letter to remind you of your options. No matter how many avenues seem to be blocked off, there’s another way. You know the old cliche. Remember what I taught you about false dichotomies. We have the power to shape our future.
If you talked to me in my earlier years, you would’ve found me aloof to political matters. I never looked at government then as an answer to our struggles and in a way I still see clamoring for political power as futile, except now I see how God intends to bring His kingdom on earth. In the midst of the nations, God will draw people’s hearts to Him whether in reverence or in terror. Through the small acts in participating in our election process, we either speed or slow down Jesus’ eminent return.
This post is not intended as an attack on either party, but to show the validity of mail and absentee ballots, and the need for upgraded voter systems that are secure. In the last couple of election cycles, I had the privilege of doing mail-in ballots due to the pandemic in which I prefer over voting at the booth. Reason being is that I can’t keep track of who’s running for office throughout the year (it’s not like politicians come knocking at my door) and it gives me time to do research on the person to see what their stances are on certain issues. Seeing whose running ahead of time helps me avoid being influenced by propaganda. So we know how problematic it becomes when we either want to ban mail or absentee ballots or require that people have a voter’s ID. While it may look like it’s merely trying to keep legitimate votes on the surface, there is reasonable concern that these additional measures are attempts to discriminate against certain voters.
If it feels like I’m aloof over the internet, I’m really not. However I am reserved and will open up to people I feel at home with. Except let me tell you sumthn, America’s breath STANK! No really! Like the US has THEE DRAGON BREATH; funky and hot like it burns in Hell ten times over; trying to make friends but nobody wants to get close because of fear of death. The US wanna tell you they about justice and equity BUT YOU KEEP KILLING OUR BLACK MEN AND WOMEN!!!
Listen US, I don’t know about you sometimes. Here godly men are trying to usher in the kingdom of Heaven and another Black Man is killed. God’s kingdom can arrive any moment now and “poof”, another one of my brothers are gone? NOW WAIT A DAG GUM MINUTE WRIGLEY!!! Somebody fetch me some Orange Crush Soda Pop because I don’t know what type of sorceries ya’ll on… it’s certainly inflammatory. Ya’ll better get yourselves together here; like advocate for community policing, or get rid of the academy that protects bad cops, because injustice can only go unpunished for so long. Deceive yourselves if you wonna.
Lord I pray that you will bring more people in the truth with faithfulness. May they not be distracted or turned aside by delusion. – Amen
I want all of those who believe in the Messiah and Divine Love to stretch their faith to be conduits of Resurrection power; whether you are Christian, Muslim, Jewish, Zoroastrian, etc. We are living in Dark times – Death, but on the other side there is newness of Life.
I know I’ve been late on arrival and we’ve yet to break bread together. Please regard such postponements as not my true intentions. If there was no fear, hate, or injustice in this realm, things would be smooth sailing – but alas! – here we are. You know my heart and how I wish to quicken the Day so we can finally be one. I say this before God, I do not lie. What a miracle it must be to experience the Divine in all its glory! Surely it won’t be long. It can’t be long. The earth groans with the rest of creation. Doesn’t your stomach churn too? I’d talk to you more, but I have some more preliminary work to do. You know I will love you always.
Until next time,
Now may our Lord Jesus Christ himself, and God our Father, who loved us and gave us eternal comfort and good hope through grace, comfort your hearts and establish them in every good work and word.
