We as Africans are God’s chosen people Israel. But because we broke God’s laws, we became displaced in the world.
It is time for us to save our lives and remove ourselves from the struggle and persecution. The only way to do that is for us—as a people—to resume obeying God’s laws. He is our only savior.
For those of you who might be skeptical of my aforementioned statement of us being the chosen people of Israel. But, according to the Bible, King David, a Hebrew, had a ruddy (red skinned) complexion (1 Sam. 16: 12). His son, Solomon, was Black skinned (Song of Sol. 1:5), as was Job (Job 30:30).
There is no illness or disease that can cause a white man to turn Black. Therefore it is a fact that the Kings of Israel were Black, thus were the children of Israel.
I contend changes were made in the New Testament to reflect European sensibilities and contradict what the Old Testament teaches us, particularly what Gods chosen people looked like.
I also contend the New Testament attempts to break man’s connection with God, to make us to believe that God does not still talk to man when the opposite is true, God still does talk to man.
In Deut. 10:1-5, it states that God gave the laws directly to Moses. However, in Gal. 3:9, it is stated that the laws were given through the angels.
In John 1:18, and John 4:12 it states that no man has seen God and lived.
If we look back in the Old Testament we can see that many men have seen God and lived. Abraham, a righteous man who was greatly loved by God, saw God and lived (Gen. 12:7, 17 and Gen. 18: 1-3, and 18:22).
Others who saw God were Isaac (Gen. 26:1-3), Jacob (Gen. 32:30), Moses (Exodus 3:16 and 33:11), Job (Job 42:5) and Amos (Amos 7:6-7).
As Africans, we must realize the New Testament corrupts our train of thought, making us unable to recognize the deceiver who dresses himself in a righteous disguise, where his intentions are not seen by the eyes or clear to our minds.
We must break away from this deception that our oppressors has caused us to believe and trust in, which has driven great fear into our hearts, causing us to depart from God.
