  1. I totally agree with the part about the color does not matter, but I would also like to bring this commom era fact to light. It appears that the curiosity of man is beginning to smack him in the face, meaning, If they weren’t so curious to discover God’s mysteries and works then we wouldn’t be having these debates in the first place. I found it rather amusing that scientist are finding the answers for their on going questions. I think that we are getting exactly what we deserve as inquisitive minded people, furthermore look at the national disaster…The earth is leaking Oil….HELLO!!! is anyone paying atttention to this? We will ultimately lead to our own demise, the roles have been reversed: before we were put here to maintain the earth, now since mankind has crept his way upon it again, it seems that the earth protects us!!! Man leans to his own understanding, thus co creating stuff which in returns comes from natural elements of the earth to begin with, but they pride themselves off of the fact that they can send someone to the moon or put a telescope into orbit….please!!! with all of the space shuttles entering and exiting the atmosphere…no wonder the polar ice caps are melting. Bottome line, we as mankind have more important things that we should be directing our attention towards instead of one another. Don’t jude a book by its cover or a man by his color…that is an original quote so don’t steal it..lol. The only way things will ever get better is if we work together and we all know the devil doesn’t want unity unless it’s doing his work and the last time i checked, his work is the reason we have all this mess going on in the first place. WAKE UP PEOPLE! stop debating things that really shouldn’t matter because regardless of what we debate…..i still believe the truth shall come to the light and those who are used to living in darkness will reject that which the light reveals! the debate about race is a created debate to begin with, so who will ever have an answer to suffice…..no one. I like Black the like White!!! prime example!

  2. Thank you , very inlighting.Yea shall know the truth,and the truth shall make you free.

    And how do his people parish?Because of the lack of knowlege

    1. Ras Clod Bwoi! What is it in the libraries of Alexandria , Cairo and other places in Egypt that they didn’t what us to see that pertains to Christianity?

  3. What people need to realize during the 400 silent years between Old Testament & New Testament Alexander the Great and another person destroyed the Libraries, Monuments, of Aleaxandria, Egypt and kept the most importat info {History of Egpt and Bible} with the Rich Clergy of the Church while the Laity (Church Attendee’s} didn’t have access to the real truth. The Greek Philosphers studied from the Egyptian school of thought.

  4. How when it come to whites and other races color doesn’t matter–but when it comes to black mentioning in the bible Color now matter. I don’t get it.

    1. Have you gone to church? How often have you heard anyone mention that there were black people in biblical time? What color do you see angels, Jesus, Santa? It’s as if black people don’t matter , have no meaning, black people are the beginning
      of life give them their credit!

  5. Hey mon, it don’t matter bout color cause we all heathen Gentiles, but if you believe in the Almighty Jesus Christ as your Savior, then we are graffted into His kingdom! If you truly believe this then it’s like your Gods’ adopted children. Amen brothers and sisters

    1. Karl even before you think of paradise and Jesus (Yahshua) you need to get the truth right today and stop hiding behind the name. If you keep my commandments you shall know the truth and the truth shall set you free. Truth is exposing lies for what is fact.

  6. We can try to ignore it all we wnt but racism is alive & well. We still r slaves to dem but n God’s eyes, we r his ppl. & he show’s great love toward us some just dnt no how to recieve it because da still have a slavery mindset

  7. We think we are suposeto have straight hair talk & walk like someone else when all along we are who we are &who we are God’s children who were made in his own image. thats right in His likeness

  8. Concerning the Library in Alexandria and other secular meeting grounds…those book are just books. Just as any other book. The one thing I learned about reading is, you can compare it to a buffet. You may be able to see the whole buffet, but surely you can’t eat everything that is set before you, therefore you only eat what you know you can handle. The truth is, ALL BOOKS UPON THIS EARTH have been manipulated and distorted. We are currently living in a time when the common trend is EVERYONE GET ALONG, but this is something that is of new origin. The races have always stuck to one another’s own and the only reason everyone wants to get along now is because we all can benefit from one another, but the fact still remains that there was this certain groug that TYRANNIZED and CHEATED everyone. This group is responsible for the library in Alexandria and the ancient Egyptians being painted white. This same group has put a lieing dog into authority, named Zahi Hawass, the current Egyptologist that runs the CURRENT DISTORTION AND DESTRUCTION of ANCIENT BLACK CIVILIZATIONS. I am not pointing the finger at anyone, but the truth must be told and to BE HONEST WITH YOU….THIS CERTAIN GROUP WOULD RATHER I DIE THAN TO KNOW THE TRUTH! I will say one other thing though…no matter how much this group has tried to destroy MY PEOPLE, with their slavetrade, giving us a new language and new names…completely DESTROYING MY HERITAGE…THEY STILL NEVER FACTOR IN THE HEAVENS INTO THEIR EQUATION…like…I know I can read the Bible, Koran, Torah, Tanak and any other books that are here upon this earth. If you really want to know the TRUTH then the TRUTH ONLY COMES FROM ABOVE. NO ONE CAN GET IN THE WAY OF THE HEAVENS WHEN THEY HAVE TO relay a message from the MOST HIGH TO MANKIND…no book can suffice. No preacher or teacher can suffice. If you really want to know the truth and what is really going on in this world then what did the MESSIAH PROMISE? Ye shall know the TRUTH and the TRUTH SHALL SET YOU FREE….I AM FREE PEOPLE AND HIS NAME IS NOT JESUS CHRIST, NOR JESUS THE CHRIST. JESUS could not have been his name because if he spoke HEBREW, ARAMAIC or GREEK…neither has A LETTER J in its alphabet. Therefore THEY NEVER CALLED HIM (J)esus…this name is recently new. His name is YESHUA HA MASHIOK…YESHUA=jesus….HA=the….MASHIOK=the annointed….DOES ANYONE SPEAK MY LANGUAGE because THIS IS WHAT THE HEAVENS HAS REVEALED TO ME? What is man, but a VAPOR? No matter what these people do to distort the TRUTH….YE SHALL KNOW THE TRUTH AND THE TRUTH SHALL MAKE YOU FREE….IT SURE FEELS GOOD TO BE FREE…I HOPE YOU JOIN ME SOON!

    1. I think its the new heaven for whites thats why they are slaughtering africans for the land and other resources. Remember if the whites murder the africans and create new hybrid races, there would be less originals staking claims on the land. And the new hybrids will finish the job because the hybrids will not relate to the originals. Thats why there are so many confused hybrids in north america claiming to be everything but black even when they cant pass for anything but black.

  9. the fake “white” image of christ story was created” in the first concil of nicea in 325AD” by constintine and pope julian the second!King Ezana from Ethiopia, is the first christain emperor of the world, 200 years, long before constantine was on the scene!Yashua Christmas was on born Jan 6 in a cave in Ethiopia!He was an “revolutionist”.He was not a messiah but was spiritualy enlighten being because of “meditation”. constantine distorted the cross story from “OSIRUS” and the SUN birth of december 25 from HORUS! ISIS, has the first virgin birth story of the world, not mary! The Kemetic Book Of Dead predates the king james bible 1611ad, the koran 640ad, torah 250bc!!! The reason i know these things cause my family went to Sai(now known by Egypt) , Kush( now known as Ethiopia), Canaan( now known as Israel) ISIS-AMENRA-ELOHIM= ISRAEL!!!!!!!! people need to travel and stop reading these european versions of holy bible, torah ,and korans!!!!! Yashua ,Buddha, Horus,Krishna and even AMEN are representations of the “SUN” not son. A ressurrected Penis and a Vagina(the WOMB) can bring forth LIFE. In the Beginning there was Man, Woman, and Child and today we go by Father, Son, Holy spirit. The christian missionaries didn’t have respect for the woman, so they replaced the woman with holy spirit!!!!!believe me or not!God is not yor creator !!!! Man and Woman are the creators!!!!The only God spiritual connection or Realm within you is through MEDITATION!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
