The Deception of Racism Among Christians

© 2005 by J. Greene and Bible Vision

There are all kinds of physical differences in the gathering of disciples. Proclaimed disciples of Messiah that are carnal, not spiritually mature, or that continually operate in the flesh instead of the Spirit, look at physical differences inside (and outside) the brotherhood of the Messiah and make a big deal about those features. There could be many reasons the flesh feels the way it does. Perhaps the flesh simply needs to feel good about itself because of past life experience or covet some imagined benefit that someone else has. Our experience indicates that racism is a cover for deep-seated feelings of insecurity, usually grounded in envy. All of this is grounded in fear. You don’t want to be on the bottom in life, so you want to be certain that someone else is. Racism is the easy solution for this. (“YHWH: The Choice to Stay Loyal“; “The Reality of Judgment & Your Preparation“)

Racism is often a ‘poor man’s disease,’ although this kind of bigotry expands over the range of worldly economic standing. Bigotry knows no real boundaries, so it can be applied to ‘fat people,’ ‘big noses,’ and practically anything the poison of bitterness and envy within wants to hate. Racism can also be as simple as believing that you have power or control over another, then choosing to act within the profession of that power. In the gathering of professed believers, these kind of brothers and sisters in the flesh often get together in cliques: as the old adage says: “Birds of a feather flock together”. (“A Mind of Envy and Competition“; “Messiah & the Tool of Envy“; “Disciple: The Bible & Higher Authority“)

love-marriage-truth-speak-water-wordBigotry issues that relate to skin color and ethnicity is elevated to an issue of importance, creating a false idol of judgment before YHWH, your Heavenly Father.  Feelings of racism alone easily results in false disciples, by personal choice. Remember that how you judge others is how you will be judged.

“Do not judge, lest you be judged. For with what judgment you judge, you shall be judged. And with the same measure you use, it shall be measured to you” – Matthew 7:1-2, ISR98

Your poor judgment effectively places your eternal life and standing with your Heavenly Father in jeopardy. Beware of ‘false prophets’ that testify otherwise, or attempt to justify the poison of bitterness that is bigotry. Anyone that speaks against the Will of Elohim [‘God’, YHWH] to satisfy personal cravings of delusion sets himself or herself apart from Him as a false prophet.

“Therefore, whatever you wish men to do to you, do also to them, for this is the Torah and the Prophets. Enter in through the narrow gate! Because the gate is wide – and the way is broad – that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter in through it.

Because the gate is narrow and the way is hard pressed1 which leads to life, and there are few who find it. But beware of the false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are savage wolves.

By their fruits you shall know them. Are grapes gathered from thornbushes or figs from thistles? So every good tree yields good fruit, but a rotten tree yields wicked fruit. A good tree is unable to yield wicked fruit, and a rotten tree to yield good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. So then, by their fruits you shall know them – Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Master, Master,’ shall enter into the reign of the heavens, but he who is doing the desire of My Father in the heavens.

Many shall say to Me in that day, ‘Master, Master, have we not prophesied in Your Name, and cast out demons in Your Name, and done many mighty works in Your Name?’ And then I shall declare to them, ‘I never knew you, depart from Me, you who work lawlessness!” – Matthew 7:12-23, ISR98

Do not seek to justify anger, bitterness and other poisons of hatred that are grounded in personal insecurity through fear. You cannot benefit yourself or anyone else through this sin in the eyes of Elohim. Any benefits you reap as a result of your personal bigotry is of this world and short-lived indeed. (“The Truth About Anger; “Forsaking Bitterness“; “Opposing Fear“; “Understanding Sin“)

Racism looks on racially-mixed marriages with disdain and disgust. Others are more quiet with their personal bigotry. Whole bodies of proclaimed Christians ignore those in the body that are different or of mixed ethnicities in the hope that they will simply go away from a general lack of attention. These proclaimed Christians of flesh don’t want to look bad, and like the Pharisees of old, want to look good to the eyes while quietly fulfilling their poisonous agenda of idolatry. The judgment upon brothers and sisters that are different can be quiet, cool and calculated, designed to alienate and discourage. The real problem is that everything that is in the world is in these proclaimed Christians. (“The Antichrist & the War on Reality“)

Don’t make skin color and appearance your idol or your judgment, nor fail to obey your Father’s law of love. Otherwise, your father becomes the devil, and you may be resigned to a reprobate mind apart from Elohim. Furthermore, you will be judged as you judge others, reaping your personal destruction in Elohim’s Judgment. Instead, give your wholehearted devotion to YHWH, your Heavenly Father, as you root out the ways of the world and allow the Holy Spirit [Sanctified, Set Apart Spirit] to counsel and cleanse you. Your trust in Elohim alone will set you apart to Him. (“Being Set Apart Makes You Aware of Sin“; “What Is Washing By The Word?“; “Scripture, Slavery & Racial Bias in this Age“; “Millenniums of Human Exploitation“; “Deception of Ages: How People are Deceived“)

“For YHWH so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”
John 3:16, RNKJV
Heavenly Father,
Thank you for sending the Messiah, your only begotten Son to be my Savior. I believe in Him and have made this belief the center of my life. Because of this, by faith I have everlasting life! Thank you! I repent of my sins and of my past, freely admitting that I have fallen short of Your glory. I look fully forward to you in my life and commit my life to You. Thank You YHWH, my Heavenly Father for setting me free in the name of your Son Yahshua [Jesus]. Amen.
genuine-articleYou will never enjoy true freedom through the Messiah and power of the Holy Spirit unless you read and absorb the Bible in prayer and trust. You will never know this freedom until you experience it for yourself. Get to know your Heavenly Father, His Son and allow the Holy Spirit to work in your life. The Holy Spirit is your teacher, your Holy Counselor that lives in you to help you learn about the truth of YHWH and His spiritual gifts.
Satan does not want you to have the excellence of YHWH in your life. People pray for protection and want to be taken care of, but often do little in growing close to Him. The world, your husband, your wife, your family, your government do not build your trust in YHWH or free you from spiritual bondage. Your church or your pastor cannot save you. Education, power and money will not free you, but only the Word of your Heavenly Father. Salvation is a daily walk, an act of love for yourself and for those around you, not a one-time event that centers only on you. Make the Word of YHWH your own, your very life!
YHWH is Yahweh, the covenant name of your Heavenly Father.
The names Yahshua and Yahushua are original language names for Jesus,
He is often referred simply as the Messiah or Master.
