SPREADING THE WORD WITHOUT SAYING A WORD MINISTRY

WHAT DOES THE WORD OF GOD SAY
ABOUT ETHNIC DIVISION???
ACCORDING TO THE WRITTEN WORD OF GOD: GOD IS NO RESPECTER OF PERSONS!!!
- Acts 10:34 Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that GOD IS NO RESPECTER OF PERSONS.
- Romans 2:11 For THERE IS NO RESPECT OF PERSONS WITH GOD.
- Ephesians 6:9 And, ye masters, do the same things unto them, forbearing threatening: KNOWING THAT YOUR MASTER ALSO IS IN HEAVEN; NEITHER IS THERE RESPECT OF PERSONS WITH HIM.
NOW THAT WE HAVE ESTABLISHED, ACCORDING TO GOD’S WORD, THAT GOD IS NO RESPECTER OF PERSONS, LET’S SEE WHAT GOD SAYS ABOUT ETHNIC DIVISION!!!
Genesis 1:27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. WE ARE CREATED IN WHO’S IMAGE??? GOD’S IMAGE!!! GOD NEVER MENTIONED A SKIN COLOR!!! YOUR PHYSICAL APPEARANCE DOESN’T MATTER TO GOD, 1 Samuel 16:7 But the LORD said unto Samuel, Look not on his countenance, or on the height of his stature; because I have refused him: for the LORD seeth not as man seeth; FOR MAN LOOKETH ON THE OUTWARD APPEARANCE, BUT THE LORD LOOKETH ON THE HEART. JESUS SAID IN John 7:24 JUDGE NOT ACCORDING TO THE APPEARANCE , but judge righteous judgment. 1 Corinthians 2:16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ. WE HAVE WHO’S MIND??? THE MIND OF CHRIST!!!
KNOWING THAT BELIEVERS IN CHRIST JESUS HAVE THE MIND OF CHRIST AND KNOWING THAT GOD DOESN’T SEE THE OUTWARD APPEARANCE GOD ONLY SEES THE HEART… THAT’S ALL WE SHOULD LOOK AT AS WELL, THE HEART, NOT THE COLOR OF SOMEONE’S SKIN!!!
IN THE OLD TESTAMENT, THE LORD WAS ANGERED WHEN MIRIAM AND AARON, THE BROTHER AND SISTER OF MOSES HAD SPOKEN AGAINST MOSES BECAUSE HE WAS MARRIED TO AN ETHIOPIAN (BLACK) WOMAN. Numbers 12:1 And Miriam and Aaron spake against Moses because of the Ethiopian woman whom he had married: for he had married an Ethiopian woman. 12:9 And the anger of the LORD was kindled against them; and He departed. 12:10 And the cloud departed from off the tabernacle; and, behold, Miriam became leprous, white as snow: and Aaron looked upon Miriam, and, behold, she was leprous. THE LORD WAS ANGERED BY MIRIAM AND AARON SPEAKING AGAINST MOSES BECAUSE OF WHO HE MARRIED.
AARON BEGGED FOR MERCY!!! Numbers 12:11 And Aaron said unto Moses, Alas, my lord, I beseech thee, lay not the sin upon us, wherein we have done foolishly, and wherein we have sinned. Numbers 12:12 Let her not be as one dead, of whom the flesh is half consumed when he cometh out of his mother’s womb.
MOSES PRAYED FOR MIRIAM!!! Numbers 12:13 And Moses cried unto the LORD, saying, Heal her now, O God, I beseech thee. Numbers 12:14 And the LORD said unto Moses, If her father had but spit in her face, should she not be ashamed seven days? let her be shut out from the camp seven days, and after that let her be received in again. Numbers 12:15 And Miriam was shut out from the camp seven days: and the people journeyed not till Miriam was brought in again. GOD MADE MIRIAM LEPROUS, WHITE AS SNOW FOR SEVEN DAYS. GOD WAS ANGRY WITH THE ETHNIC PREJUDICE SHOWN BY MIRIAM AND AARON!!!
THE ONLY CHOSEN ETHNIC GROUP IN THE OLD TESTAMENT ACCORDING TO THE OLD COVENANT WERE THE JEWS, Leviticus 26:12 And I will walk among you, and will be your God, and ye shall be my people. 26:13 I am the LORD your God, which brought you forth out of the land of Egypt, that ye should not be their bondmen; and I have broken the bands of your yoke, and made you go upright. Genesis 12:1 Now the LORD had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee: (Israel) 12:2 And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: 12:3 And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.
Anti-Semitism is suspicion of, hatred toward, or discrimination against Jews for reasons connected to their Jewish heritage. We are Jews by faith!! Romans 4:16 Therefore it is of faith, that it might be by grace; to the end the promise might be sure to all the seed; not to that only which is of the law (The Jews), but to that also which is of the faith of Abraham (Believers); who is the father of us all.
JESUS SAID IN John 10:14 I am the good shepherd, and know my sheep, and am known of mine. John 10:15 As the Father knoweth me, even so know I the Father: and I lay down my life for the sheep. John 10:16 And other sheep I have, which are not of this fold: them also I must bring, and they shall hear my voice; and there shall be one fold, and one shepherd. WHEN JESUS SPEAKS OF THE OTHER FOLD, HE IS SPEAKING OF THE GENTILE BELIEVERS AND NOT OF THEM WHICH ARE OF THE LAW (JEWS).
IN THE NEW TESTAMENT, UNDER THE NEW COVENANT IN WHICH WE ABIDE, PAUL SAID IN Romans 10:12 For there is no difference between the Jew and the Greek (Gentile): for the same Lord over all is rich unto all that call upon him.
Romans 8:14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, they are the sons of God. Romans 8:15 For ye have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but ye have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. Romans 8:16 The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: Romans 8:17 And if children, then heirs; HEIRS of God, AND joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together. Galatians 3:29 And if ye be Christ’s, then are ye Abraham’s seed, AND HEIRS according to the promise.
JESUS IS VERY CLEAR IN John 15:16 Ye have not chosen me, but I have chosen you, and ordained you, that ye should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever ye shall ask of the Father in my name, he may give it you.
John 15:17 These things I command you, that ye love one another.
John 15:18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. John 15:19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. John 15:20 Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.
DON’T BE PEJUDICED BY ANYONE’S ETHNIC GROUP OR SKIN COLOR, THAT IS NOT OF GOD!!! THE IGNORANCE OF HATING SOMEONE FOR THEIR SKIN COLOR
IS A LIE FROM THE PITS OF HELL!!
