On Religion and Slavery

I was awakened by Lord and happened to stumbled on the following scriptures and then some. Hmmm…

Leviticus 25:39The Law Concerning Slavery
“And if one of your brethren who dwells by you becomes poor, and sells himself to you, you shall not compel him to serve as a slave.

And yet , we did not come to them THEY CAME TO US ,  they did not compel us to slavery- they captured us. 

Nehemiah 5:5

Yet now our flesh is as the flesh of our brethren, our children as their children; and indeed we are forcing our sons and our daughters to be slaves, and some of our daughters have been brought into slavery. It is not in our power to redeem them, for other men have our lands and vineyards.”

Leviticus 26:13
I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, that you should not be their slaves;

I have broken the bands of your yoke and made you walk upright.

I watched a video the other week in which Apostle Price made a really good case regarding how special, remarkable people we are because of and despite the obstacles and the oppression that we have to endure and to overcome. Despite the fact that following the signing of The Emancipation Proclamation with the promise of 40 acres and a mule. Despite the fact that that promise was taken away after the assignation of Lincoln. Look how far we’ve come, we started out with nothing and look at us now and what we have been able to accomplish this far! 

It’s because of the greatness of God’s power that lies within! 

Ephesians 1:19-21

and what is the exceeding greatness of His power toward us who believe, according to the working of His mighty power which He worked in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly places, far above all principality and power and might and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age but also in that which is to come.

The same power that got us thus far is the same power that stills lies within each of us; and the same greatness of His power that will continue to lead us!
