Healing The Nation
Today, perhaps, as never before in the history of the United States, of American republican governed Union, white and black lives, i.e., US citizens, through mitigating circumstances, are being compelled by HIM to close gap of our “house divided against itself.
“Lives” -“the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners”, whom * GOD, created equal, as inseparably, conjoined paternal twins.
Key Note: “GOD” is the Central Figure of the Declaration of Independence
The pain, or malady of one side of the twins will naturally effect the other!
Even as one is promoted in good health and prosperity, such as the “blessings of liberty”, the other must also equitably, experience the same, lest the obviously ill side will eventually cause them both “perish from the earth.”
Evidently, of its challenges, the most dangerous imperfection of the Union, is the unhealed, July 2-4, 1776, British inherited, chattel slavery-race “wound” to the national, collective, generational soul of We the People.
The Responsibility of the Innocent
While innocent of initiating the present racial turmoil crisis, it is nevertheless incumbent upon this generation of US citizens to welcome and embrace the opportune honor to address the generations-old, open, unhealed and festering with infection wound that our ancestors left to us.
As the forefathers-(past) are to us, their descendant children, we are also that to ours.
From the beginning of civilization, the forefathers and ancestors’ societal and political-governmental, etc, imperfections have always been transferred down their descendant children, whom eventual became-becomes that which them/us.
It is our sacred and honorable duty of the present generation to conscientiously defend, protect and prevent the generational consequences, or aftermaths of our forefathers-ancestors’ failed duties.
The failed responsibilities of yesterday are the duties today, thereby easing those of tomorrow.
As the founding fathers posterity, regardless of how hard, difficult and painful it may be, we are charged to “shoulder” together this responsibility of opportunity to enthusiastically embrace our inheritance, even of a divine appointment in appeasement offering to GOD like never before.
Even though it was the inability of the founding fathers to reconcile the matter of generations-destroying, chattel slavery “yesterday”, nevertheless, We the People charged by the Preamble to lift our inherited burden, or face worse consequences.
The inherited, 89 years dereliction of duty in the matter of chattel slavery, fell first, 150 years ago upon the unsuspecting, innocent lives of what became the greatest and most significant generation in US history, that being the one of the Civil War era.
“These slaves constituted a peculiar and powerful interest. All knew that this interest was somehow the cause of the war.”
Those innocent American peoples were chosen by the Judge of all the earth, to rectify “that cause” of the Civil War in what Abraham Lincoln correctly identified since its July 2-4, 1776 birth, as “a house divided against itself” (quoting Jesus-Yeshuah Christ) over the matter of chattel slavery.
As this matter is not our generations’ fault, neither was it that of Civil War generation, yet they had to be committed to “that cause” for which circa 740,000 of their innocent, young, primarily white boys and men (plus 38,000 blacks) “gave their lives that the nation might live” and “shall not perish from the earth.”
However, should we, the now innocents, respond as those recently before us to also reject our inherited duties, then, as they, our generation will be even more guilty.
“These Honored Dead”
Therefore, it is through “these honored dead that we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure”, and develop the moral fortitude to commit the necessary actions of healing, and thereby close the divisive wound.
Those innocent boys and men, suffered beyond what our words can speak, on our behalf. Lincoln is saying, that whatever pains we may suffer today by rectifying our ancestors’ mishaps, they woefully pale to near invisibility compared to “what they did here.” Therefore, be heartiful and execute justice for healing.
Ironically, it seems that providential circumstances throughout the country have developed affording us opportunities to maneuver our nation to into a humble, conscious attitude by which GOD can clearly and mercifully judge to grant us Judaic justice, i.e., national salvation.
Spirit of Forgiveness
On behalf of His Heavenly Father, Jesus-Yeshuah demanded that His believers develop a spirit-attitude of forgiveness, as it is the fundamental percept of Judaic salvation, summed with the precept of confessing our faults to one another and praying GOD’s blessing upon the other in order for us to receive healing from HIM.
It is evident, that after circa 5,000 years of recorded history, human interactions is naturally replete with accusing each other as responsible for their
respective problems, whether it’s individuals, including family members, friends, associates; social classes, national identities, ethnicity or race.
Subsequently, such vilification excuses any of the accusers’ self-destructive antics against the now victims.
However, by the grace of HIS good will, this Heal America movement demands and expects, that as the Judaic-Christian, exceptional, “one nation under GOD”, divinely conjoined, paternal twins, both being believers, We the People will no longer participate with “the accuser of the brethren” in continuing to accuse and condemn each other.
Rather, it is our intent to work together at the “MLK Table of brotherhood” for reconciliation and the divinely, providential, blessed healing of our country.
Instead, as prophesied by the late, Rev.-Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.,
“I have a dream that one day…the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will sit together at the table of brotherhood.”
