- Start living the covenant life that our ancestors agreed to, which is to be the light of GOD to the world
- Place all your troubles, worries and concerns in GOD’s hands. Wait for HIM to fight your battles
Seek understanding from GOD
I am Hebrew – Israelite. What does it mean? Firstly, it means you should have a private talk with GOD. Therefore, this task requires that we humble ourselves before HIM. Secondly, ask GOD to forgive you of the sins you’ve done against HIM. This includes all the sins you’ve knowingly done, as well as those you have done in ignorance. Thirdly, ask GOD to reveal knowledge and understanding to you as you read and study the Bible. Lastly, remember you are seeking insight, and understanding of HIM and HIS ways written in the Bible.
You will never understand everything GOD wants you to know in one hour or one day. However, as you reach out to HIM for understanding, bit by bit, He will increase your knowledge and understanding. When GOD gives you clarity and understanding, you must apply this knowledge to your life. By not doing so, GOD will cease to give you more knowledge and clarity. And the little HE does give to you will eventually be forgotten by you.
Recognize you cannot change history – GOD designed it this way
When our ancestors broke their part of GOD’s covenant, the curses announced in Deuteronomy went into effect. In order to understand these curses, I suggest you read a good Bible. I recommend the KJV, without the Elizabethan language. Read the first 5 books, which are Genesis, Exodus, Numbers, Leviticus and Deuteronomy. When you read these books, remember you are witnessing the personal relationship between the living GOD and your ancestors.
In Genesis, chapter 15:13-16, you see the prophesy GOD gives our father Abraham regarding our 400 years captivity/slavery. Also, GOD set a specific time for bringing us out of captivity, and back to the land of Israel. More importantly, the Atlantic Slave trade was written into our history with the finger of GOD before our birth. Consequently, we cannot change history, because GOD designed it this way even before the covenant at Mount Sinai.
Start living the covenant life that our ancestors agreed to; which is to be the light of GOD to the world.
The Covenant that our Ancestors made with GOD are detailed in the books of Exodus, Leviticus Numbers and Deuteronomy. In short, Israel’s term in the covenant is to be the light of GOD to the entire world. The covenant applies to the children of Israel, and the foreigner who decides to join themselves to Israel. The covenant is eternal, meaning it passes from generation to generation of the descendants of Israel.
IF Israel is to be GOD’s light in the world, then she must learn how to become GOD’s light. In order to do this, she must master the trait of humility. This is because humility requires taming the flesh, and taming the flesh requires being in constant prayer with GOD. And rely on GOD for strength to control the tongue, and not re-act with anger in any situation.
Place all your troubles, worries and concerns in GOD’s hands. Wait for HIM to fight your battles.
As you master the trait of humility, it becomes easier to place your troubles, and concerns into GOD’s hands. The more you trust in HIM you will begin to see GOD fighting your battles for you. There is nothing as sweet as GOD fighting your battles for you!
Nevertheless, when we witness the outcome of GOD doing battle for us, we must maintain a humble heart. We are not to shout, dance and gloat about other peoples demise when GOD deals with them. Instead, we are to give GOD praises and thank HIM for doing what we could never accomplish without HIM.
