FB asks me, “What is on your mind, Mike?”
As I watch the coverage of the Dallas Police shootings I am concerned that a spiritual door from hell has been pried open in this country. Every police shooting has to be weighed out. The one in Minnesota is likely to be found a “bad shoot.” Baton Rouge I don’t know how that will fall. But the shooting now of 11 (4 dead as of 11:20pm cst)¬†officers, regardless of who did the shooting, has ratcheted up everything.
Some have laughed when I have said something like, “Don’t be surprised if they are reasons for Marshall Law in the fall…putting off the election. Many voices have said this, it isn’t really original to me. Some have referenced the summer of 68. I was only 10 years old, I don’t remember much…riots and violence on the news I do recall.
Demons are laughing, Satan is gloating.
The Lord weeps, the Spirit mourns.
The “church”, for the most part – unprepared.
How long, O lord, will you tarry?
How long, Spirit, will you wait for us to turn?
How long, Father, before you chastise?
It isn’t black, it isn’t white — it is all about the heart.
What lives inside it, what do we feed it —
Hate, prejudice, superiority, more hate?
All that successfully tears down the color walls is – One
One who lives forever
One who died so we can live
One who cleanses, changes, and renews the heart
One who knows what it is to be
discriminated, hated, profiled and entrapped
One who lays down his life, his power, his heritage
to identify with those who have none of the above
How long, O lord, will you tarry?
How long, Spirit, will you wait for us to turn?
How long, Father, before you chastise?
Do you know the One?
Have you allowed Him to affect your heart
Have you invited him to make you “color-blind?”
Have you begun the journey of change?
