Jesus Christ the End of The Races

Racial hatred has already been eliminated in Christ Jesus.

If Jesus were known and were Lord the politicians would not be able to exploit race for their advantage.

“remember that you were at that time separate from Christ, excluded from the commonwealth of Israel, and strangers to the covenants of promise, having no hope and without God in the world. But now in Christ Jesus you who formerly were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. For He Himself is our peace, who made both groups into one and broke down the barrier of the dividing wall, by abolishing in His flesh the enmity, which is the Law of commandments contained in ordinances, so that in Himself He might make the two into one new man, thus establishing peace, and might reconcile them both in one body to God through the cross, by it having put to death the enmity.”‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭2:12-16‬ ‭

There is no greater hostility between the races than between Jews and gentile.
The Charlottesville marchers in August 2017 that resulted in a surprising violent clash with Antifa were chanting about the Jews before their opponents came. From hatred for Jews grows all racism.

But in Christ Jesus both Jew and gentile and every distinction within Jew and Gentile (including black & white) is eliminated. Jesus Christ eliminated all racial animosity in that he killed the old humanity in his own body on the cross.

Since his resurrection there is now a new humanity in Christ Jesus, Jesus himself being the firstborn of this new humanity. 

Ending racism is not by us realizing it’s bad and stopping, it’s by dying to our flesh and old humanity and daily allowing Jesus Christ to live through us.

This new humanity is fixated on knowing Jesus Christ, knowing him is their life-source, looking to him in a spiritual way daily is itself eternal life. When we abandon him and look to the flesh all sorts of old worn-out evil fills our lives and sometimes our streets.

Knowing Jesus is the end of racism, sexism, forsaking Jesus becomes holding onto racism and sexism and every other form of divisiveness according to the flesh.

Some of the politicians who want to rule over us seem to need racism I think because it causes people to loose all reasoning faculties and good sense and live by emotion and that’s all they have.

In Your Eyes

There is something supernatural about looking someone in the eye and seeing and hearing what Jesus is doing in them, among their imperfections and inadequacies. 

Not recycled doctrine or parroted talking points, not marketing catch-phrases but fresh life from Jesus Christ from their own spirit, it strengthens and edifies everyone. 

This puts Jesus Christ on display.

The world needs much more of that, not less.

The Real Eating & Drinking

Jesus is the real food and the real drink.

Brain scientists recently demonstrated that information gathering in humans has very similar effects on the brain as when grazing animals find food.
