Power comes from the Word of God, because: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made.” (John 1:1-3). In this context Word simply means spiritual Truth. Unfortunately, The GOP believe that they have power, but there is no power in dealing in lies, because lies operate on borrowed energy. The TRUTH creates its own energy source, and the source is GOD, because the TRUTH belongs to GOD. The author of lies is the devil. Spiritual power is about doing good. Worldly power is about privilege and pleasure, and the GOP has become a classic example through the promotion of White Privilege Autocracy rather than multi-cultural democracy. Democracy is about universalizing and individuating power based upon the unadulterated word of God. Therefore, The GOP has a flesh-oriented understanding of power based upon exclusion rather than inclusion. “The earth is the Lord’s, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein”. (Psalm 24: 1). We should never forget that the personalization of power is a myth. God is an inclusive God, not a particularistic God. All material things will pass away, only God’s unadulterated word is eternal in the heavens: “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away.” (Matthew 24: 35). Christian Right Evangelicals, The GOP, White Nationalists, Fox “FAKE” News, and some spiritually misguided Blacks and other minorities, especially Vivek Ramaswamy, know this: “Forever, O Lord, thy word is settled in heaven.” (Psalm 119: 89). The GOP is so ungodly confused that they practice doing nothing, except lowering the tax rate for the rich, and accepting personalized back door favors. This is a perfect example of how not to use power, because it is an example of having power, and not knowing what to do with it! Power is about universalized goodness.
Behold how God used his spiritual power when He commissioned the Gospel Writer St. Paul to pen these spiritual words of inspiration for our eternal reward: “For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succored thee: behold, now is the accepted time: behold, now is the day of salvation.” (2 Corinthians 6: 2). God has spiritually warned us concerning using power for personalization, rather than universal good, because: “The house of the wicked shall be overthrown: but the tabernacle of the upright shall flourish.” (Proverbs 14:11). Know this, self-centered Politicians, there is a way that seems right to the ungodly, but the end is the way of confusion and the desire to personalize power. Pathetically, The GOP has power and does not know what to do with it, other than create confusion and societal conflict. Therefore, we must acknowledge that: “Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.” (Proverbs 18: 21). Will someone please tell the GOP, and it’s want-to-be Standard Bearer, Donald J. Trump, that once words are spoken, they cannot be retracted. Therefore, it is better to speak words of righteousness and peace rather than conflict and societal discord. Personalizing power is not of God, but the devil. Therefore, America we must never ever forget that: “The Lord gave the word: great was the company of those that published it.” (Psalm 68: 11). The African American News & Issues is desperately seeking to publish God’s truth in order that we become a better world, rather than a bitter world, because:” Righteousness exalteth a nation, but sin is a reproach to any people.” (Proverbs 14: 34). Selah!
