Open Your Pretty Eyes!

3904827-rise.jpg

My brothers and sisters we must be knowledgeable about our history and wake up to reality. How glorious it is to know that God made you to be queens and kings and made you in his image. To be people of great rewards. He gave you the world but because of your lack of faith in him you lost it all and fell victim to this world and the ideas of society.

Isaiah 3:16-26 and 4:1

The Lord says,

The women of Zion are haughty, (arrogantly superior and disdainful)

Walking along with outstretched necks,

Flirting with their eyes,

Tripping along with mincing steps,

With ornaments jingling on their ankles.

Therefore the Lord will bring sores

On the heads of the women of

Zion;

The Lord will make their scalps

Bald”

In that day the Lord will snatch away their finery: the bangles and headbands and crescent necklaces, the earrings and bracelets and veils, the headdresses and ankle chains and sashes, the perfume bottles and charms, the signet rings and nose ring,, the fine robes and the capes and cloaks, the purses and mirrors, and the linen garments and tiaras and shawls.

Instead of fragrance there will be a

Stench;

Instead of a sash, a rope;

Instead of well-dressed hair, baldness;

Instead of fine clothing, sackcloth;

Instead of beauty, branding.

Your men will fall by the sword,

Your warriors in battle.

The gates of Zion will lament and

Mourn;

Destitute, she will sit on the

Ground.

In that day seven women

Will take hold of one man

And say,”We will eat our own food

And provide our own clothes;

Only let us be called by your name.

Take away our disgrace!”

 

When will you wake up and see how precious God knows you are but you fail to see it in yourselves. God chose you to be His people. You should be proud to know you are the chosen ones that He took as His own to love, guide and protect, but you chose fashion and the ways of these people over your faith in your Father and others used it against you and stole what was rightfully yours. God said it! You are the Daughters of Zion!

 

Daughters of Zion

(meant men and women)

Zion meant Jerusalem and, later, Israel as the people of God. “Daughter of Zion,” then does not refer to a specific person. It’s a metaphor for Israel and  the loving, caring, patient relationship God has with His chosen people.

These scriptures from the Bible where God calls you His very own and the pain our ancestors inflicted on him when we rejected His love, teachings and words, to follow the world who did not love us.

2 Kings 19:21

Isaiah 1:8

Isaiah 62:11

Jeremiah 4:31

Micah 4:13

Zechariah 9:9

 

We lost our way trying to fit in with these people when God asked us to stand out, teach ad be examples for these people. We lost our identity trying to blend in with modern society. We allow them to lead us from the very person who gave us life and authority over others.

You’ve become blinded to the teachings of your Father. Ignorant to your inheritance because you failed to read but chose to be misinformed. You jumped at the words given to you from their books but never took the opportunity to check facts. However, you question God daily when he created all things and knew all things.

Now you walk around like zombies while the world mocks you and others still try to mimic you but you’re too dense to realize God’s truth. You act as if you were born to be on the bottom of the totem pole, but you put yourselves there because of stupidity. We subject ourselves to their views and what they declare as right. Selfishness and greed feeding our souls and we willingly killing our own kind when the very people you’re trying to impress is also killing you.

You act like servants, peasants and fools but upset the world no longer acknowledge you after they’ve stolen all your royalties. They’ve taken your dignity, power, style and respect and you’re too lazy to take it back. You fear standing up, speaking up, acknowledging your rights and fighting back because of retaliation but open your eyes to what’s going on around you. They are retaliating against you for being you and you’re sitting on your butts, you are the Majority, not the Minority. You hold the power!

Isaiah 5:12-13

They have harps and lyres at their

Banquets,

Tambourines and flutes and wine,

But they have no regard for the deeds

Of the Lord,

No respect for the work of his

Hands.

Therefore my people will go into

Exile

For lack of understanding;

 

He has spoken the words of truth even before this time but you have fallen victim to the standards of society and your only way back to cry unto Him to deliver you and restore you.

 

What the world sees now

Sagging pants

Nigga used as a term of endearment

Happy side chicks

Broken homes

Drug dealers/users

Single parents

Unruly children

Robbing, killing, selling, abusing our own

 

Those are a few things but we’re doing everything those people once did to our ancestors, to our very own. Destroying the legacy God himself gave to us to pass on from generation to generation.

They talk about our kids growing up fatherless but look at our past. Families were separated from one another, sold to the highest bidder. Men were stripped from their families and if they stood up to fight back were beaten and hung from a tree. Women and children watched on while their husbands, sons and fathers were taken away to work on plantations living like animals and their voice beaten for saying no and trying to protect those they loved. Fathers seeing their daughters and wives raped and stripped for the world to see and felt powerless against those carrying whips, chains and guns ready to take their lives. We are no better today although we out number them all but we have decided to knock our own down versus standing together for our rights and promises given to us by God.

 

When do we open our eyes to the truth?
