IS THIS NOW WHERE WE ARE AS A NATION? HOW DOES THIS PERSON DISPLAY THIS IMAGE BOLDLY ON SOCIAL MEDIA? IS THIS THE FIRST DISPLAY OF INSANE, VIOLENT,DISGRACEFUL, VIOLENCE OPENLY? NOT AT ALL! WE GIVE OURSELVES PERMISSION TO PRACTICE THIS AND WORSE ON WHO WE HATE DAILY. WE ALSO GIVE PERMISSION TO INSANE VIOLENT PEOPLE TO ATTACK OTHERS ON OUR BEHALF WHILE WE TELL OURSELVES THAT THIS IS JUSTIFIABLE. WE LET THESE MAD, INSANE, CRUEL NATURED BEINGS PREVAIL OPENLY IN OUR SOCIETY NOW IF IT SUITS OUR PURPOSE. THANK GOD NOT EVERYONE IS ALLOWING THIS AND NEITHER DO THEY AGREE TO ANY KIND OF TARGET VIOLENCE UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES! WHERE ARE YOU?
Unfortunately My Sisters And My Brothers, What This Means Is No More Of Us Is To Ever Be Allowed To Hold This Office Again. What It Means Is Kill Them The Way We Use To When We Could Not Stop Them Other Wise. What It Means Is That We Have Closed Our Eyes To Too Much Hatred And Now It Has Come Back To Hunt Us. What It Means Is That Hatred Allowed For Some Is Allowed For All. What It Means Is That We Have Replaced The Reverence Of Serving God With The Pretense Of Our Own False Sense Of Arrival. But What It Mostly Means Is What Does This Mean To You When You Still Carry On As With The Deeds That Are Done Openly Daily Just Like This Picture. When Are They Gonna Get Your Attention Enough To Stop And Say “ My God! We Will Still Have To Ever Deal With The Awakening Of Deep Rooted Hate In Society And Also In Me, As Well As Others. And When Other’s Are Openly Comfortable With Their hate, That Means That We As A People Are Openly Comfortable With Our Hate For Each Other For What Ever The Reason You Give Yourself.
NOW WE WILL HEAR WORDS FROM MARTIN:
All of these things came to my mind, and when I stood there in Westminster Abbey with all of its beauty, and I thought about all of the beautiful hymns and anthems that the people would go in there to sing. And yet the Church of England never took a stand against this system. The Church of England sanctioned it The Church of England gave it moral stature. All of the exploitation perpetuated by the British Empire was sanctioned by the Church of England.
But something else came to my mind: God comes in the picture even when the Church won’t take a stand. God has injected a principle in this universe. God has said that all men must respect the dignity and worth of all human personality, “And if you don’t do that, I will take charge.” It seems this morning that I can hear God speaking. I can hear him speaking throughout the universe, saying, “Be still and know that I am God. And if you don’t stop, if you don’t straighten up, if you don’t stop exploiting people, I’m going to rise up and break the backbone of your power. And your power will be no more!”
And the power of Great Britain is no more. I looked at France. I looked at Britain. And I thought about the Britain that could boast, “The sun never sets on our great Empire.” And I said now she had gone to the level that the sun hardly rises on the British Empire—because it was based on exploitation, because the God of the universe eventually takes a stand.
And I say to you this morning, my friends, rise up and know that, as you struggle for justice, you do not struggle alone, but God struggles with you. And He is working every day. Somehow I can look out, I can look out across the seas and across the universe, and cry out, “Mine eyes have seen the glory of the coming of the Lord. He is trampling out the vintage where the grapes of wrath are stored.” Then I think about it, because His truth is marching on, and I can sing another chorus: “Hallelujah, glory hallelujah! His truth is marching on.”
Then I can hear Isaiah again, because it has profound meaning to me, that somehow, “Every Every valley shall be exalted, and every hill shall be made low; the crooked places shall be made straight, and the rough places plain; and the glory of the Lord shall be revealed, and all flesh shall see it together.”
That’s the beauty of this thing: all flesh shall see it together. Not some from the heights of Park Street and others from the dungeons of slum areas. Not some from the pinnacles of the British Empire and some from the dark deserts of Africa. Not some from inordinate, superfluous wealth and others from abject, deadening poverty. Not some white and not some black, not some yellow and not some brown, but all flesh shall see it together. They shall see it from Montgomery. They shall see it from New York. They shall see it from Ghana. They shall see it from China.
For I can look out and see a great number, as John saw, marching into the great eternity, because God is working in this world, and at this hour, and at this moment. And God grants that we will get on board and start marching with God, because we got orders now to break down the bondage and the walls of colonialism, exploitation, and imperialism, to break them down to the point that no man will trample over another man, but that all men will respect the dignity and worth of all human personality. And then we will be in Canaan’s freedom land.
Moses might not get to see Canaan, but his children will see it. He even got to the mountaintop enough to see it and that assured him that it was coming. But the beauty of the thing is that there’s always a Joshua to take up his work and take the children on in. And it’s there waiting with its milk and honey, and with all of the bountiful beauty that God has in store for His children. Oh, what exceedingly marvelous things God has in store for us. Grant that we will follow Him enough to gain them. [recording interrupted]
O God, our gracious Heavenly Father, help us to see the insights that come from this new nation. Help us to follow Thee and all of Thy creative works in this world, and that somehow we will discover that we are made to live together as brothers And that it will come in this generation: the day when all men will recognize the fatherhood of God and the brotherhood of man.
DO WE NEED ACTION AGAIN?
WE NEED ANOTHER MARTIN CAUSE WE CANNOT MAKE VOID THE PROGRESS!
