Revelation 1:14 For God So Loves Matters Mark
Many read the Holy Bible with a personal understanding and sadly for prideful meaning. This kind of practice is not new, nor is racism, maybe the oldest evil in the world. Racism appears in the Holy Bible in how the Egyptian servants of Joseph did not eat at that same table with him and his brothers because they were Jewish.
Genesis 43:32 Then they served him by himself, and Joseph’s brothers by themselves, and the Egyptians who ate with him by themselves; because the Egyptians could not eat bread with the Hebrews, for that is an abomination to the Egyptians.
Most Christians would like to believe those who follow the God of love are not racist. Sadly, that is not true, and even more sadly, it is not a new evil from the followers of Yahweh or Yeshua. Jesus/Yeshua showed all kinds of loving mercy to Jews and Gentiles. He healed Roman servants and asked a non-Jewish woman for a drink of water. Jesus/Yeshua’s even told the non-Jewish lady God is Spirit. Therefore, He must be worshiped and Spirit.
John 4:7 A woman of Samaria came to draw water. Jesus said to her, “Give Me a drink.” 8 For His disciples had gone away to the city to buy food. 9 So the Samaritan woman said to Him, “How is it that You, though You are a Jew, are asking me for a drink, though I am a Samaritan woman?” (For Jews do not associate with Samaritans.) 10 Jesus replied to her, “If you knew the gift of God, and who it is who is saying to you, ‘Give Me a drink,’ you would have asked Him, and He would have given you living water.” ~:22 You Samaritans worship what you do not know; we worship what we do know, because salvation is from the Jews. 23 But a time is coming, and even now has arrived, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in Spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to be His worshipers. 24 God is Spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in Spirit and truth.”
So, scripture proves that the Lord is not racist or that He is partial to any race of people. The word of God does not tell the race or color of Adam or Eve, but there is the artwork of them as white, and some believe they were black. Moses wrote the book of Genesis, but Moses did not write the details of the Adam of Eve race. Only they were made in God’s image, and that they sin, lost that glorious image. Scripture says that Moses wrote his wife was Ethiopian, and Ethiopians are dark-skinned. The Greeks gave them the Ethiopian title in Greek dark face when they discovered the Ethiopian people.
The Black Hebrew Israelite movement interprets Revelation 1:14 that Jesus Christ, the Lamb of God, is Black. They say they are not a hate group like the KKK, a white supremacist. But they believe and teach salvation is only available to the black race or dark skin. They have much scripture they interpret to support their teaching. But so, early American slave owners misused scripture to support slavery. Scripture is totally against generational sins, and there is no such thing as generational salvation. A pure African male does not have facial hair similar to pure native American Indians. The idea that salvation is only available to one race of people is prideful hateful teaching. They proclaim to be commandment keepers, but in 1979, Marcus Wayne Chenault, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr’s mother, was murdered by a member of the Black Hebrews movement. Is the hair of Jesus’ beard and hair in Revelation wool because He is a black man, or is He more of a middle eastern Palestinian man, or is it wool? His hair is wool because He is the Holy Lamb of God and not a man. God is not the Maker of only one race of people, nor did He send His only begotten Son to die for the sins of one group of people. All lives matter to God, and only those who obey God with love will see the His face and inherit His kingdom. God bless you; the Lord loves you, and so do I.

1 John 4:3 and every Spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God; this is the Spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming, and now it is already in the world. 4 You are from God, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world. 5 They are from the world; therefore, they speak as from the world, and the world listens to them. 6 We are from God. The one who knows God listens to us; the one who is not from God does not listen to us. By this we know the Spirit of truth and the Spirit of error. 7 Beloved let’s love one another; for love is from God, and everyone who loves has been born of God and knows God. 8 The one who does not love does not know God, because God is love. 9 By this the love of God was revealed in us, that God has sent His only Son into the world so that we may live through Him.
John 1:12 But as many as received Him, to them He gave the right to become children of God, to those who believe in His name, 13 who were born, not of blood, nor of the will of the flesh, nor of the will of a man, but of God.
