The Coming Race Wars

In Matthew 24 Jesus briefly summarizes the end times. He introduces it with a warning not to be deceived, then a sample of signs that are like birth pains leading up to the climax of history, including this sign:

“Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom.”

This has often been interpreted to mean “wars and civil wars.” That does make sense, and certainly reflects what we’ve been seeing with increasing frequency and intensity.

However, a friend recently pointed out the Greek text this was interpreted from, which makes this prophecy even more specific, more alarming, and more relevant to what we see going on: the word “nation” was translated from the word “ethnos.” That should sound familiar to you–it’s the root of words we use like “ethnic” and “ethnicity.”

In other words, Jesus was using the term “nation” according to its Biblical definition (as in Genesis, for instance) instead of our modern definition of a nation as a strictly political entity. Which of course makes sense, though I can’t number how many times I’ve read this prophecy in English and never considered that possibility. It seems the Messiah was predicting race wars.

Indeed, well before this insight, I could see the effects of our enemy fomenting racial strife. And I don’t mean just the redneck or white supremacist kind–though that’s the only kind you’ll ever see portrayed in movies or on TV, or hear acknowledged in the news.

Some insist that it’s impossible for a non-white individual to be a racist; but that’s not only a bald-faced lie, the assertion itself is racist. It assumes that those with a certain skin color or genetic strand are morally superior, simply by virtue of their being born with that skin color or genetic strand.

I am surrounded by Hispanics and African-Americans on a daily basis. While they certainly have prejudices against each other, their hatred of whites (white male heterosexuals in particular) becomes more blatant by the day.

In fact, racial strife is a lucrative industry. There are those whose livlihoods depend on maintaining racial hatred.

Professional_Race_BaitersThe news media edited the 911 recording related to the Trayvon Martin case in order to sell it as a racially motivated crime. There has been careful manipulation of the facts surrounding the Ferguson, Missouri incident as well, in order to define the conflict along racial lines. In both cases the manipulation is geared toward heightening the emotional response among African-Americans to a perceived widespread anti-black conspiracy.

Not that it’s very funny, but it’s an old joke by now how knee-jerk accusations of racism are slung at anyone who dares to criticize the words or actions of Barrack Hussein Obama. These accusations are hurled with straight faces after some 95% of registered (living, legal) black voters cast their ballots for the candidate whose skin color is most like their own.

Whereas the abolitionists and Republican-led civil rights efforts concentrated on assimilation–that is, equality by assuring individual rights are protected regardless of the ethnic background of the individual; the Democrat hijacking of the Civil Rights movement has concentrated on Balkanization via racial identity, locking minorities into subcultures that would increasingly identify themselves as victim classes. Of course there is little difference between the political parties anymore. They differ in degrees; not principle. It’s more like a good cop/bad cop skit than an actual two-party system.

In the wake of both the Trayvon Martin and Ferguson, Missouri media blitzes, I witnessed an avalanche of stories about black-on-white crime that goes unreported by the mainstream media, as well as photos and reports which reveal the martyrs in this brewing race war are not the innocent victims they are cracked up to be. I didn’t help spread any of this–not because I endorse or approve of censorship, double standards, selective reporting and agenda-driven journalism, but because sparking a significant backlash regarding this topic could possibly cause exactly the sort of racist zeitgeist that the Victim Status Addicts (VSAs) imagine lurking behind every tree.

race-card-obamaThe backlash will likely occur even without my assistance. White male heterosexuals are feeling increasingly disenfranchised already. They’re the only demographic without a host of advocacy groups, scholarships, PACs, sympathizers, etc.; they’re the only ones for whom it is considered unacceptable to express pride in their ethnicity, sex or sexuality…and the list goes on.

Those who are manipulatable through their emotions, of whatever genetic strand, are already harboring resentment for those who are ethnically different because of what’s going on. And of course a bigot (of whatever color) is usually blind to the racial prejudice within themselves.

With the looming financial collapse in North America, the trigger-happy militarized police and some other factors, it won’t take much at all to inflate the current race-based suspicions and resentment into full-blown hatred. And it’s not hard to imagine how that will lead to organized violence. A very costly lesson is ready to be learned: nationalism is not dangerous only when embraced by German socialists; it will bring out the ugliness of the carnal heart within any faction.

Sadly, the Church is not immune. Among African-Americans in particular, self-identity is most often defined as black first; Christian second (at best); American last. And few have the courage to suggest there’s anything wrong with that.

The melting pot has become a powder keg.

I never doubted the existence of God. I thank my parents for that. Even so, most of my life could be summed up as a shameful rebellion against Him. Still, even when living like a reprobate heathen, I still occasionally studied the Bible. I found it just as confusing and seemingly contradictory as most people, yet I could also discern there was power in it, and truth beyond my finite reckoning. After finally admitting to my Creator, "You are God and I am not," my study of the Bible became a bit more intensive. I have learned much, and will learn much more. I plan on sharing some of that here.

  1. What are your thoughts now….what about George Floyd and Sandra Bland and many more. You are a Bible believing racist. Most white Bible believers are racist. That is evident…where are the television preachers and high profile Christians during all this racial tension. They are silent for a reason. You probably also sell a white Jesus though he was born in the part of the world where people are very dark skinned. Joseph and Mary fled to Egypt with Jesus as a baby why because Egyptians and Hebrews looked alike. It is so sad to hear the wrongful comments of a privileges person whose forefathers had a 400 year head start. This country is a new country and it was made great by forced free slave labor. Blacks have never been given their 40 acres and a mule. Even the Japanese have been compensated for the atrocities that the USA once inflicted on them when they put them in concentration camps. The Native American was granted reservations, benefits…..You are blind, but you won’t be when the day of the Lord comes. God has made a promise to a people and he is going to keep his promise.

    1. Poor Renee–you assumed that you could make idiotic accusations (which reveal more about your own intellectual and reading comprehension deficit than they do anything else) and I would trip all over myself apologizing for saying something you disagree with. But then, based on your ignorant remarks, you either don’t know/care what I’ve actually said, or you’re lying about what I’ve said. Either way, it’s par for the course with people who make knee-jerk accusations of racism because they are incapable of rational debate.

      Who do you think you’re fooling with your straw man argument about a “white Jesus”? You can’t form a coherent rebuttal to anything I’ve actually said, so your first and last tactic is to lie.

      Your knee-jerk projection about privilege is equally laughable. Those who people are not allowed to criticize are the truly privileged. Your sense of entitlement betrays you.

      You obviously know exactly as much about me, my background and forefathers as you know about history, which is nothing. You don’t know what you don’t know, but I won’t waste my time trying to educate somebody who is unteachable and only capable of emotional reasoning. Also somebody who no doubt votes for the very party responsible for the list of injustices you’ve been programmed by TV and public school to blame on people who had nothing to do with them.

      Most likely, you support the institution of slavery on your every shopping trip without a blink of your bovine eye. Certainly you’re ignorant of the plight of African slaves right now, this very day–but they’re in African countries, enslaved by other “brown people,” which doesn’t fit your “America is raaaaayciss!” narrative, giving you an excuse for further willful ignorance.

      If you were capable of honesty, you would admit that no American condoned the murder of George Floyd. I don’t know who these silent Christians are who you’re referring to. If you expect them, or God, to say that Floyd’s death justifies gangs of violent racists stealing big screen TVs, murdering people who had nothing to do with any police brutality, and setting fire to other people’s property…well, that’s a pretty big clue as to which god you actually serve.

      You are part of the problem.

    2. And now I understand why you had to insert the crap about “white Jesus.” Everybody in the Hive Mind is now bleating out the same narrative from the same Allinskyite playbook. Congratulations on being a tool.

    3. Donna, the Lord will open your eyes one day. Your comment about about most white bible believers being racist is repulsive. If anyone is being racist it would be you saying such a thing as that. Don’t act like, we whites that live today, are the ones who enslaved your ancestors and that we owe you reparations. That’s what it’s about… what you can get out of us so called, white crackers. You want to enslave us so you can sit on your butt and do nothing. We owe you nothing. What happened in the past all those years ago cannot be undone. We all have to move forward and love one another as the Lord wants us to.

      1. Excuse me, I meant Renee not Donna. I’ve seen too many names today. 🤦🏻‍♀️
