“He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” He who was seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.” – Revelation 21:4-5
As we watch the nation in an uproar full of pain and anger, we hear the voices coming from the roots of this soil. The voices of our ancestors are sweeping through the ears of the nation. And their voices are calling everyone to the battle field. And in the midst of battle people from different backgrounds are standing by our side at full force. The enemy is being backed against the wall as the leader of this country adds fuel to the fire. He sits in that White House but not on the Throne. He is not only exposing his character but other’s as well. And as we watch and listen, it is hard to hear about more lives being taken and property being destroyed, but as a black woman who’s raising a black son it seems necessary to get the attention of those who can’t see. Everyday I have to be thankful just to be alive, as it seems as though ‘black lives do not matter.” As a result, I have to have very mature conversations with my 5 year old son about the realities of this world. I am concerned about his future. But I know the God I serve will make a way in these hopeless times, and in order for things to get better things are going to have to be uprooted to be destroyed. It may be painful.
The revelation is being televised and the system of oppression is being revealed and torn down.
It’s time is up! The old order will be no more.
