    Do all of this, and then — only then — you will understand 

    The world and many in Christ are stupid. So says Prov 2.1-5. When our people can sing worldly lyrics all day long, but have trouble coming up with one or two verses by memory, according to Solomon, they are stupid.

    My child, if you receive my words,
    and store up my commands within you,
    by making your ear attentive to wisdom,
    and by turning your heart to understanding,
    indeed, if you call out for discernment—
    raise your voice for understanding—
    if you seek it like silver,
    and search for it like hidden treasure,
    then you will understand how to fear the Lord,
    and you will discover knowledge about God.

    Do you see this happening among us? With some, yes. With many others, it is not. These are seeking other things, and it shows.

    Don’t be stupid. Make a scene and get wisdom. Be a mental hoarder of the word of God. Be obvious about knowing Christ. Make fearing the Lord your absolute and only priority.

    Only by doing all of this will we get a handle on what it means to be a Christian.

      Those who are TRULY in Christ are not stupid, if they receive the words of the Most High and hide His commandments with them. This is not happening among God’s chosen the so called Blacks the Negroes, Hispanics and Native Americans. ). It’s not surprising that when it comes to OUR PEOPLE are eluded to the things of the world. Satan tempted Jesus in the wilderness (our people are in the wilderness) and said, if you bow down and worship me, I will give you the things of this world.
      Question: What are they are seeking? What they are seeking is the reason they have no understanding.
      Question: What does it mean to fear God? According to Ecclesiastics 12:13?
      Question: What is Religion? The Bible and all that God has commanded His people to follow and endure isn’t a religion. Religion created their gods using the bible such as Christianity, Islam, and Judaism. All the scriptures are inspired by God of the Holy Bible KJV 1611 with the Apocrypha, translated by King James (a black man). He is the ONE and ONLY TRUE GOD. Christian Scholar translated the scriptures and taught their own doctrine to fit their religion- Christianity- Their god resembles Caesar Borgias (The white Jesus Christ). This is white supremacy and man creating God in his own image; Islam- Stole the Bible The prophet Muhammad couldn’t read or write, so he went the chosen people of God to receive their learnings and went and created the god called Allah. When the Quran was dictated from Gabriel to Muhammad he had his scribe to write the Q’uran which has no prophesies in it. Elijah Muhammad, the founder of the nation of Islam was taught by Wallace Fard Muhammad a white man. Muslims, and the nation of Islam bow down and worship that stone in Mecca.(1 Peter 2:8 AND Duet 28:64 Jeremiah 2:27). Judaism- does not believe in Jesus Christ; and has blasphemed His name in all sorts of ways. The Jews in Israel today are known as the synagogue of Satan. So their god is Satan (Revelation 3:9)
      Question: When was CHRISTIANITY introduced in America? founded and by whom and for what reason? (Hint: Rise of the Roman Empire and their emperors) Trans-Atlantic Slave Trade; Slavery? When the God of Israel sent His Chosen People into captivity on SHIPS; (During the Transatlantic Slave Trade) according to Duet 28:15-68?
      Fearing the Lord is our absolute and only priority, and if we do, “THIS” then will we receive all of what Proverbs 2: 1-5, starting with the first verse, and throughout the BIBLE.
      Question: Who is God’s CHOSEN PEOPLE according to 1 Peter 2:9; Genesis 17:7, Duet 7:6-11 and Numbers 25:13
      Question: How long does an “everlasting” covenant last throughout a generation?
      In Duet 28 because of our disobedience, God sent us into captivity and gave us over to our enemies and serve them in all our needs, such as food, water, clothes, EVERYTHING! And they would put a yoke of iron upon our necks until we were destroyed mentally as a nation of people, our nationality, But if we hearken diligently unto His voice and observe all “THIS” which He commanded that day, then God would set OUR PEOPLE on high and above all nations on the earth.
      We are in the last days and God is waking up His people. There will be a Change of Blessings and A Change of Nation for many who will hearken and observed all things the Most High has commanded.

    Here’s an interesting “good news” story from our local newspaper about a lost dog by the name of “Patches,” and the efforts to find him.


    After reading this “search and rescue” story, I wonder what would happen if we as Christians put as much effort into “searching” and “rescuing” those who are lost in sin, as this lady did in finding this lost dog.

    It’s something to think about!
