The clip below is another reason why I continue to say “I’m not down with NFL”. The NFL’s so-called “owners”, top-level executives, and of course Roger Goodell can all choose to do what is right, but they won’t. Their love of money, and their love of profiting (especially off us as their slaves/gladiators), is nothing new, they continue in the ways of their forefathers; think all the way back to Greece & Rome. Let us remember, there’s nothing new under the sun (Ecclesiastes 1:9)….
Watch this clip below, and consider what he says, and why it’s not being talked about so much, especially despite all the commentary, debates, and thoughts, prayers & well wishes for Damar Hamlin since the sad & shocking day of his in-field collapse:
Our ancestors, who lived through the trans-Atlantic slave trade, experienced the most heinous slavery. And again, even though there are symbolic resemblances when considering the treatment by our ancestors’ enslavers and the NFL executives, it is ludicrous to compare the two fully, action for action. NFL players have a choice to work & get paid or find other employment; whereas our enslaved ancestors had to choose between labor or death. I’ll put it another way, NFL players aren’t forced to play, and they are paid for their work, still, such was the life for some gladiators. In that clip above, did you hear the man on the right call NFL players “gladiators”? Well let’s see what Rome says about gladiators:
Continue to pray for Damar Hamlin and his family. Also, use your voice, your social media platform, and your purchasing power to speak against corporate wrongs done to all of our people, especially our modern-day gladiators. And more importantly, continue to pray for our people, our nation of wayward Israelites, so that we as a nation awaken to who we are. We must understand that we as a people have broken the covenant with our God/Elohim. We must repent/turn away from sin & disobedience, and we must once again obey the commands of our Father. Otherwise, we as a people, we the set-apart nation of scattered Israelites, will continue to live out the curses of Deuteronomy 28. Pray that our people come to the knowledge of Scriptural truths like these:
“And God (Elohim) said to Moses, “I am Yahweh (YAHUAH/YAH)—‘The Lord.’ I appeared to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob as El-Shaddai—‘God Almighty’—but I did not reveal MY name, YAH, to them. And I reaffirmed MY covenant with them. Under its terms, I promised to give them the land of Canaan, where they were living as foreigners. You can be sure that I have heard the groans of the people of Israel, who are now SLAVES to the Egyptians. And I am well aware of My covenant with them. “Therefore, say to the people of Israel: ‘I am YAH. I will free you from your oppression and will rescue you from your slavery in Egypt. I will redeem you with a powerful arm and great acts of judgment. I will claim you as My own people, and I will be your Elohim. Then you will know that I am YAH your Elohim who has freed you from your oppression in Egypt.”Exodus 6:2-7 NLT
“Has any nation ever traded its gods for new ones, even though they are not gods at all? Yet my people have exchanged their glorious Elohim for worthless idols! The heavens are shocked at such a thing and shrink back in horror and dismay,” says YAH. “For MY people have done two evil things: They have abandoned ME— the fountain of living water. And they have dug for themselves cracked cisterns that can hold no water at all! “Why has Israel become a slave? Why has he been carried away as plunder? And you (Israelites) have brought this upon yourselves by rebelling against YAH your Elohim, even though He was leading you on the way! “Long ago I broke the yoke that oppressed you and tore away the chains of your slavery, BUT still you said, ‘I will not serve you.’ On every hill and under every green tree, you have prostituted yourselves by bowing down to idols. “You say, ‘That’s not true! I haven’t worshiped the images of Baal!’ But how can you say that? Go and look in any valley in the land! Face the awful sins you have done. You are like a restless female camel desperately searching for a mate. When will you stop running? When will you stop panting after other gods? But you (Israelites) say, ‘Save your breath. I’m in love with these foreign gods, and I can’t stop loving them now!’ “Israel is like a thief who feels shame only when he gets caught. They, their kings, officials, priests, and prophets— all are alike in this. But why not call on these gods you have made? When trouble comes, let them save you if they can! For you have as many gods as there are towns in Judah (Yahudah). Why do you accuse Me of doing wrong? You are the ones who have rebelled,” says the YAH.”Jeremiah 2:11-14, 17, 20, 23, 25-26, 28-29 NLT
We turned away from the Torah/Instruction of YAH our Elohim, we learned how to serve the gods of other nations, we were taught to love false images of our Father & His Son, and false doctrines of men as if they were doctrines found in Scripture… Now is our time of awakening and repentance. Now is our time to walk in obedience to YAH’s commands and to live in the blessings once again. The days and promises of Deuteronomy 30 are ahead of us—HalleluYAH! So as we deal with the last of the effects of oppression & slavery, I again encourage you to pray for awakening and repenting Israel—Our rescue & freedom by the Hand of YAH (The Son), is coming soon!
Until next time, shalom ✌🏾
