The earth is the Lord’s and the fullness there of. God created man in His image and gave the earth to man to have dominion over it and, to put into perspective it potentials, it possibilities and its capabilities. The earth relies on humanity to initiate or put in place God’s plan for the functional features of the earth to operate in its balance. I have come to the conclusion that our negative attributes to the earth hemisphere have indeed left a great strain on its overall functions which has now impacted our way of life, how we think, how we behave, how we live and even how we die. The earth was purpose by God to preserves his creations. Creation of every human being originates from the soil of the earth so as the earth dies so is every man one bit at a time.
Its mind boggling to see men that are made in the image of God succumb to chains of bondage, negative influence, manipulation, distraction, and the many more based influences that has affected our world in such a devastated way. We are all infected with each other germs, be it good or bad because we are ripple of each other co-existence. What am I saying here is, who we are, what we display, our thought, our actions and our intentions shapes our future destiny the baton is passed on and the same race is still on. Let’s stop a while to reflect centuries ago the world back then. Man’s lifestyle today is the product of what was sown then. The law was given to shape our future, what then was the law of the land annihilated, or was it water down to fit the lifestyle of the era? I am inclined to say that the law has been manipulated, distorted and definitely unfuntional, mankind has not respected the Laws God has given to them for their own benefits and survival. So the earthly law makers constitute their own laws and rules to the society base on injustice, partiality, and racism. I observed from I was born until now the word equality hasn’t been reflected in our society for decades.
One of the most disturbing things one can think of is thinking that his or her race is better then other races, or has no regards nor respect for another human being, labeling others by color code, categorizing and dehumanizing one another, and even trying to explain the link between man and monkey. I am thinking at this moment many have not known themselves, not even yet. A reflection is not the man, your shape, your goals is not the man, your stature is not the man, and not even your accomplishment is the man. Let me explain wisdom to those who degrade and dehumanize God’s creation. When God made the heaven and the earth he reasoned with his son and his heavenly host and said to them, “Let us make Man, and in His image he made man.” I will put my spirit in him, and I will give him dominion over the earth. This statement led me to believe that embodied in a frame is God’s greatest creation on earth. Those who dehumanize another human being not only defy God’s authenticy, but also become the critics of the mind and heart of God. Those who are shallow in mind and thoughts lack the ability to see the big picture and are very limited in knowledge, wisdom, and understanding of the things and awesomeness of God. So when you see a man or a woman in spite of what color background or group you perceived them to be, observed them as the greatest design yet, for you are no better or more valuable than the one you scorned, for God has created all men equal to share this space.
I sympathized with people who just can’t relate to others, other than those who look the same as they do, or as they would say their own kind. I know it’s a disturbed mindset and many would even say they were taught at an early age to hate other races because they are not the same as they are. Thinking back this has been our downfall for centuries. One could only imagine that in this time and era we would be still experiencing such ignorancy of human being, instead of being one big happy family, but who am I kidding, I realize for us to even work in the same place is one of the most challenging experience we are face with at times. I really believe that the laws of the land or society are unjust, prejudicial and a whole lot of racisms. In my life time I noticed that the laws of one race are different from that of another. I saw the harshness of the penalties of one race over the other. The legistration that the judicial system exercises in our society today is one the most humiliating, pathic, deception one can only imagine, and one can confirm this by just taking a good look at our society today. You see it takes a man with the heart or the Spirit of God to make good and just judgments and if by chance the system or the enforcers lacks this force, I can assure you that his or her judgment will be smeared, tarnished, and prejudicial and partial. What I am saying here many times we have ruthless leaders controlling our systems and in that case justification is denied and chaos and confusion take over.
Deception plays a big part in our world today. God warns us that many are in darkness and will not know the truth for their eyes are blinded, God is the source of all light and He plays a very important role in decision making for His people so unless you are connected to His light you will be of benefit to the process. So you can just imagine those who sits in high places as rulers, who are still in darkness making decision for you and me who hasn’t even seen the light of day as yet, they are still groping in the dark. Evidence of this powerful truth reflects all over our world for centuries now. There are so much perplexity and confusion among the leaders of the nations that there is just no more trust, some people just don’t care anymore they just do as the Romans do. There are many people in leadership position in our society who are unable to put their own houses in order, but are given the task of ruling and making decision for countless numbers of people. I implore those who think they are called for leadership position make sure their inspiration comes from God, for it is God who input all the mechanism in a man’s heart and spirit for such a task, and in that case much good thing will be done. On the contrary darkness will befall the earth because of the false leaders who are in control of decision making, for what can a man who hates or dishonors God do for me to let me feel justified or safe. Reiterating that question how can I feel safe and secure with someone who hates God, making decision for me and my family. I have seen criminal judging criminals, liars judging liars, thieves judging thieves, and that just to name a few of the many blunders that we are so condition to in our society today.
Many who are in leadership be it in the home, in the church, in the government, schools, place of employment are held accountable for the decisions they make for those that they are responsible for, that’s the reason why it is not every body called to be leaders. All great and effective leaders are ordained of God. Being born in a family who takes on leadership role does not necessarily make other member in that family leader. Remember in all things, many are called but only few are chosen, and the reason for this is that light does not mix with darkness, and God knows the heart of every man. I can make my assumption that leadership responsibilities are high-risk task, so if any individual knows in his or her heart that it lacks love and understanding; do think twice even before taking on that role. For at the end of the day God will be your judge. All through history we have seen leaders rise and fall, some bringing down with them the whole nation they rule over. I heard many debates and discussions about how one should govern or the right stand one should take on a matter, or just let shove it under the carpet until some other time. I really would like to know how many leaders are hearing from God and who is listening, for it very painful to see the mess we are in today.
There are many things that perplex my mind a few of them I will mention not to start a strife but to ease my mind from the burden of this shame. I know God make all men equal, He says to us that all nations are made of one blood, we all came from the dust of the earth and we will all go back to the same. So why do one race think they should have the power over another race to keep them in bondage and will do every thing in their power to suppress them until they literally turn on each other. Why do the system that was put in place to defend all men equally only works for the selected few, and the less privilege has to hurt so bad before their voice can be heard? Who is listening to the voice of the poor, or the less fortunate? I have seen more criticism of the poor than concerns. Why so much poverty while some companies are making millions of dollars daily through the hard work of men and women who still struggle to pay his or her bills, or to put food on their table for their children, because their employers are paying them minimum wages for years, where are the justice? Where are those with the heart of God? Doesn’t the conscience of an employer bothers him when he drives his Lincoln or his Benz pass the bus stop and noticed half of his employees waiting for the bus to get home even in cold bad weather, knowing that these same very people are the reason for his success. Why do minimum wages remain the same for ages while the economy changes, and the prices of goods sky-rockets? Why partialities are so evident in the work place, for in some companies the floors you work on speak for itself.
I try hard to understand why people would treat others with hostilities, mainly because of how they look, or because of their ethnic background. One of the things that disturbed me is how racial profiling is so rampant and nobody is doing anything about it. It’s time those who are guilty of such weakness seek help, because God is watching you and at the end of the day he will be your judge, and remember what you sow that you will reap. Another thing I would like to mention is the ways in which certain teachers make judgments about children who are of certain background or class. Some of these teachers targets one race of kids and held them back by saying that they need special help which is away to keep those kids down, teaching them about shape of objects and repeating the same thing over and over to them for years robbing them of their dignity and purpose. Many of these kids drop out of school because of that very reason, with no knowledge or training because of this crime. Teachers remember you are helping to shape that child’s future, so it depend on your positive attitude towards that child that will bring him success, and it will be your negative criticisms that will cause him to fail. Remember God loves all children and He is watching over them and He sees everything that is done to them, and at the end of the day he will be your judge. I know we do not have a perfect world, but our world is what we make it. Tell me are your proud of what you have done for your world.
I know of a fact that our stewardship of God’s earth is very disappointing to him; we haven’t done a good job in taking care of our responsibilities. I can say of a fact that we have failed God in many ways. Some may become offensive and even say what is my problem. I know for sure that the earth was given to humanity to have dominion over it that is to rule over it, to empower it, and see to it that its conditions are well kept. That the responsibilities that God has given to man, but just take a good look at the deplorable state that it is in today. Let me refresh the mind of some of those who are skeptical about my statement on this issue. First of all let’s take a look at the big picture; our survival depends on what is effective on the earth. God created a simple life for all humanity; He has created the earth with all the necessity of life. God did not command man to go shopping for clothes at the moon, or get a bucket of water from the stars nor buy food from Jupiter. The earth was given to man to have dominion and power over it; to take care of it, to be a good steward of it from one generation to another. Everything that God made was good. Therefore, take a good look on the deplorable state that’s its in today and ask yourself, what is your role in this crisis?
Take for instance, how we have cut down million of trees in this era than we ever did in the pass to replace them with industries that are bellowing poisonous gases in the atmosphere poison in the sea and lakes, the fishes are poisoned, the birds are poisoned, diseased are rampant in human and animals, many trees are diseased because of the poisonous and toxic gases in the atmosphere and the many other debauchery that has caused an adverse affect on our planet. We are all guilty before God, because he has given power to all men to rule but many has become weak-minded and other has become greedy and overly possessive therefore, there are no unity and harmony between the nations of the world. They separate themselves from each other by color code, idolatry, racism, religion, prejudice, just to name a few. Many are paying the consequences for what they have created, Too many are in silence and effortless gives up their right and privilege to others who says that they are commanding chiefs but continues to wreck the ship every time. God didn’t give power to one nation to have dominion over his earth; he gave dominion to the twelve tribe of Israel, to bring about stability and enrichment to our planet.
So why are we facing such devastation to our planet if we have the keys to God’s plan for the earth. Are we all confused, what is our problem, why do we hate one another because we are of a different nation, why do we use racism and religion to separate us from one another? This insecurity is causing many conflicts and war among us, which is killing our men, women, children and our world. God will judge us in the end, for we are all accountable for our role here on earth. Many of you may think there is no God so you do not have to be accountable for nothing, you better think twice because if there is no God, you do not exists and you are not real, because God is the creator of our beginning and our end. I really pity those who are bound to religion missing the true purpose of God’s plan for their lives, religion is nothing merely than a custom that has been passed down from one generation to another to keep them into bondage to a lifestyle that controls and confine them into submission to man made laws and traditions. God resent religion all manner of evil are stemmed from religion, we see how many nations are fighting and killing each other in the name of religion. Religion is a tradition and will not measure up with God standard of living. Those who rebel against Gods laws, statutes, and morals will look to religion which is the customs of their forefather to justify their actions defying God in every way. In the beginning the almighty God created all things, his command to us is that, he is the Lord our God and that we should not worship any other God except him, he did not tell us to form a religion. Be wise as you seek God and his plans for your lives. I implore you to be a good steward of God’s earth and you will be greatly awarded. Love one another for it is the commandment of God.
