These seven, often proposed, solutions to black salvation are futile. In this article I’ll break down each and show you why they won’t work.

I continue to hear the same poor solutions to police injustice, poverty, sickness, bad behavior and the downtrodden state of black people as a whole in America—it’s really getting on my nerves.

First of all, most African Americans don’t understand the real reason for their condition. While the system of white supremacy has something to do with it, it’s not the root of their problem. The real reason is that there’s a god doing this to us.

Note: If you’ve stumbled on this article from Google or social media, and you’re not a follower of God or someone who believes he exists, this site is all about him. So this isn’t the place for you if this conflicts with your beliefs. It’s not up for debate whether God exists or if he is actively involved in the affairs of men.

So as I stated, God is responsible for this madness against black people. The second revelation is that black people are the ancient Israelites, the ones you heard about in Sunday school (I know there are people over in Israel today who claim to be Jews, but it’s been already uncovered as to why they are not, see the above link).

It’s not that the white man is stronger, or that the black man is weaker, it’s because God is in control.

Basically, the Israelites (now called Blacks today) repeatedly sinned against God. On top of that, they murdered the Messiah who came to save their souls. They actually had the Son of God killed! It’s for these reasons, as prophesied in multiple passages across the Bible (especially in Deuteronomy 28), that we find our people in this condition today. It’s not that the white man is stronger, or that the black man is weaker, it’s because God is in control.

Therefore these seven, often proposed, solutions to black salvation are futile. In this article I’ll break down how each one will never work:

  1. Unification
  2. Pan Africanism, Kemetic studies
  3. Islam and Christianity
  4. War
  5. Cooning and joining the enemy
  6. Buying black, group economics
  7. Returning to the laws of God

1. Unification

Blacks folks keep talking about how “We just need to unify. There’s so much division among us.” They fail to understand that God said he would scatter us and prevent us from being a unified nation until he was ready to reassemble us (see Deut 28:64 and a list of 22 other verses).

The scattering began when the Assyrians carried the ten tribes away into captivity (2 Kings 15:29; 17:6). The scattering continued when Nebuchadnezzar, king of Babylon, carried Judah away into captivity (2 Kings 25:1, 7, 11). Seventy years after the death of Jesus, after returned to their homeland, the Jews were scattered among the gentile nations (Luke 21:24).

This is where Jews settled up on the west side of Africa where they were stolen and dispersed throughout the world as the negro slaves. Chattel slavery was the most inhumane, brutal form of slavery ever. Hebrews were no longer considered men and women, but animals, stock and cargo.

To keep Israelite men, women and children into a perpetual slave mindset, they had to institute various psychological mechanisms, many that are still at work today. One of these mechanisms was distrust and disdain among the Hebrews. Without trust and respect, their can be no unity among black people.

Therefore, black people are hardwired towards divisiveness, discord and opposition among their own. This is why it’s so difficult for the majority of black people to come together. They’re running on a mental program so deeply embedded that only God himself can fix it!

The oppressor could never keep us in bondage for this long if it weren’t for the brainwashing. But ultimately, it was God who scattered us, it was God who allowed us to be captured by our enemies, and it was God who allowed the devil to do this to us; and until we repent, God is the only one who can repair the damage of our minds and unite us as a nation.

2. Pan Africanism and Kemetic Studies

pan-africanismPan-Africanism is about connecting with the rest of the African nations on the continent of Africa to support one another and combat white supremacy. It also includes learning the old ways or practices of ancient African ancestors.

First of all, it was some of these same nations in Africa that sold us to our oppressors. No African nation back then came to our rescue when we were being shipped off. No African nation has come to our aid or defense while in captivity around the world today. We’ve always had to fend for ourselves. So why attempt to connect with these foreign nations who have historically demonstrated a lack of care for us?

Marcus Garvey tried and was sabotaged and Pan Africanists today still have not succeeded. Why? Because they’re trying to connect based on skin color and land origin, and not under nationality and righteousness. Many of those brown nations in Africa are not Hebrew. Plus, as I said before, God will not allow us to unite with other Israelite tribes in Africa and other parts of the world until he’s ready to do so.

Marcus Mosiah Garvey Jr was a Jamaican political leader and proponent of the Pan-Africanism movement.

The main issue with Pan Africanists like Dr Umar Johnson is that they don’t know what nation they’re from. I respect Dr Johnson and his vision for a black male school, but for many of the reasons in this article, it will not be successful.

Just because we’re all brown-skinned doesn’t make us brothers. As a matter of fact, Hebrews were always at war with these other African nations. We, through the power of God, we’re responsible for destroying many of their people. So at most, they fear us, and at least, they hate us. As a matter of fact, all the nations hate us (Matthew 10:22).

We were never rooted in a location but in God himself.

There’s no love for blacks dispersed across the world by most Africans. They’re happy that we’re not united. So the “reconnecting” with our roots in Africa will not work because we were never rooted in a land, but in the Most High God himself. God formed the nation of Israel. Israel never established itself.

The second element of Pan Africanism is going back to the “spiritual practices” of Africa which includes Kemet (or Egypt). What we did there was surely demonic. I’ve heard these people state that “we need to reconnect with our dead ancestors,” which is nothing more than negromancy necromancy, and “start getting into that Kundalini energy and Voodoo magic again.” No! This was all witchcraft, fallen angel, false god worship. The surrounding nations were punished for these practices and this is the very thing our ancestors did that got us into bondage in the first place!

Then you have black people who think they’re Egyptian—wearing ankhs and calling themselves Pharaoh and praising Osiris. Dude, you’re Hebrew! This is just crazy. With the Kemetic studies comes the same idolatry that got the ancient Egyptians humiliated by the famous 10 plagues of God. It’s futile to “reconnect” or to go back to the ways of heathen in Africa. No success will come of it.

3. Islam and Christianity

Islam and Christianity have both demonstrated powerlessness to change the condition of black people. While I respect Islam more for their work in the community, both of these religions were used to enslaved black people, and lead us into worshiping more false gods.

When the Bible says:

And the Lord shall scatter thee among all people, from the one end of the earth even unto the other; and there thou shalt serve other gods, which neither thou nor thy fathers have known, even wood and stone. (Deuteronomy 28:64)

When God mentions the god of stone, he’s referring to Islam, The Black Stone of Mecca (Kaaba Stone) and the false god associated with it, Allah. When God mentions the god of wood, he’s referring to the wooden cross of Catholicism/Christianity, and the false image of God associated with it, the homosexual, white Jesus.

While the Nation of Islam has a stronger consciousness towards the plight of black people, they’ve failed to free us from oppression. You can see the disunity among themselves as they killed one of their beloved own, Malcolm X.

Martin Luther King Jr begged white folks to stop the mistreatment, but yet, no real change occurred. Turning the other cheek and trying to appeal to the morality of your oppressor is just plain stupid. The reason why your oppressor is treating you so badly is because he/she has no morality—they’re wicked!

All that marching and complaining got us nothing but Integration which made the condition of black people even worse. Regarding the so-called Church of Christianity today, most white Christians still won’t unite with black Christians. The churches remain divided. Why? Because God isn’t in mainstream Christianity. Otherwise the Church would be the only place where you’d see all nations of people standing in unity.

Today, most black churches have done nothing for their community but drain the money from their impoverished members to spend on vain things. Christianity has been pimping black people for centuries. The biggest issue I have is these preaches won’t tell black people who they really are. Therefore, Christianity and Islam have not been able to deliver us.

4. War

Some zealous Negroes think that war is the only alternative to beat the system. But that’s just plain stupid. White Americans have been given leadership over every major resource in the U.S. and black people own and control very little. A military strike against the systems of oppression would be disastrous and cost the lives of millions.

Israel is the only nation designed to be powered by God and only by God.

Look at Nate Turner and all the slave rebellions, they all ended in defeat. Why? Because God wasn’t on their side. Just like when Israel tried to take the Promise Land without the Lord, or when they allowed sin to remain in their camps, they always ended up losing. So the same will happen with a war against the system of oppression—it would be futile. Israel is the only nation designed to be powered by God and only by God. No other effort in our own strength will bring true victory.

5. “Cooning” and joining the enemy

Some Negroes continue to say, “If you can’t beat them, join them. Act the way they want you to act. Pull your pants up. Get a job… then you’ll be accepted.”

The same people who criticize our condition maintain the systems designed to keep us in our state. God said to never envy your oppressor and surely never make a covenant with them (Proverbs 3:31, Exodus 23:32).

This is where you get these black men and women who allow themselves to be used (and paid big bucks) by mainstream media to regurgitate white supremacy talking points and degrade their own people.

These people may feel they’re being taken care of by the enemy, but what happens when the system doesn’t need them anymore? Many black folks have gotten their “nigga wake up call” as the comedian Paul Mooney used to say.

An example would be a black celebrity whose accepted by the dominate society gets into trouble, and instead of his “friends” coming to his/her defense, they throw them under the bus. Yet, other celebrities of a lighter hue are protected.

These people finally realize they were being used the whole time—they were never accepted. And this is the reality: you can never join your enemy. Doing whatever they say we need to do to be accepted will never truly make us acceptable.

At the end of the day, we still remain two nations at odds: We are envied because of our greatness, therefore we are oppressed. It’s the same behavior Pharaoh and the Egyptians had against Israel in the beginning:

Now there arose up a new king over Egypt, which knew not Joseph. 9 And he said unto his people, Behold, the people of the children of Israel are more and mightier than we: 10 come on, let us deal wisely with them; lest they multiply, and it come to pass, that, when there falleth out any war, they join also unto our enemies, and fight against us, and so get them up out of the land. 11 Therefore they did set over them taskmasters to afflict them with their burdens. And they built for Pharaoh treasure cities, Pithom and Raamses. (Exodus 1:8-11)

Because of this, joining with the oppressor will never bring about freedom. It’s funny how they say, “If you’d just pull you pants up, stop dressing like a thug, and get a job, you’d be respected.” But Hebrews were being lynched in suits, as they came home from work! So don’t tell us our clothes are the problem!

6. Buy black and group economics

“Black people need to pool their money together, start businesses and support one another. Then we can have our own economy like all the other individual nations in America. We’d be self-sufficient and wouldn’t have to deal with the white man’s interference.”

I’m all for supporting my brother’s business. It’s a good plan. But we were doing this before Integration and every time we reached a pinnacle of success, the enemy found a way to steal, kill and shut us down. It would never last. We would rebuild, being the determined people that we were, but they’d just go in and do it again. They later put an end to that through the system of Welfare which crushed the entrepreneurial spirit through cheap handouts. Prior to Welfare, 40% of black people had their own businesses, after Integration and today, only 7%.

Why couldn’t we maintain our own economy? Because God wasn’t blessing us. He was not going to allow us to prosper without repentance and reliance on him. We can’t take care of ourselves apart from God. God is our provision. He showed us that immediately after exiting Egypt with the water from the rock and the Manna.

Once again, we’re the only nation that was formed by God who can only prosper by God. No other means will work. Therefore, all we’ll get is frustration as the oppressor keeps knocking down our businesses because they’ve been built on sand not on the Rock (Matthew 7:24-27).

I’m not saying we can’t prosper individually in small groups (Deut 30:8-10). Those who follow the Lord will prosper (financially and spiritually), but the nation of Israel as a whole must realign themselves with God to see national change.

I applaud Boyce Watkins and Claud Anderson and all that talk about blacks getting their business together, but it’s futile. It would work if there was no Almighty God actively punishing us. God is not blessing us until we repent and obey him.

7. Hebrews need to keep the law

Many religious groups in Israel constantly stress that we must keep the Law in order to be saved (which is why I can’t join many of these groups). They say the Law is what we must follow and God will deliver us from oppression. If Israel could keep the Law, we wouldn’t be in the mess to begin with. But I know some of y’all will bring up this verse:

For this commandment which I command you today is not too difficult for you, nor is it out of reach. (Deut 30:11)

But why then did the Israelites keep failing God if it wasn’t that difficult to keep his commandments? Because we were missing something.

In this detailed article I stated, as the scriptures have, what the Law was given for. It was given to show how humanity doesn’t measure up to God’s holy standards, and to reveal the wickedness in the hearts of men.

Basically, the law amplifies the sin in man and brings it out. This is why Israel kept rebelling against God, and then the Lord would punish us with slavery. We’d later cry out and repent, promise to keep the laws again, God would deliver us, but then we’d go back to rebelling again, and end up slaves to some foreign nation again. It’s a cycle.

Why didn’t some smart Israelite just stop and say, “God, we keep failing you, we can’t perfectly serve you without your divine help?” That’s when the Spirit of God would’ve been poured out on that person.

But no. Israel was and is too proud to ask for help. They continue to tell God in their weakness, “We’re strong, we can obey you, we got it, we don’t need no help. These commandments aren’t that hard.” And they continue to fail and fail.

What Israel needs is the Holy Spirit to empower them to please God. Jesus had the Spirit of God and showed us how to obey the Most High. He did it in the flesh of man with all the temptations we face today, but without sin.

The saints today follow Christ’s example. Being born of the Spirit, whether they are Jew or Gentile, they please the Lord and keep his commandments. You can know them for their love for people and their power over sin.

On the contrary, most of these awakened Black Hebrew Israelites are still walking in pride, fornication, deception, witchcraft and more. They don’t represent Christ and some of them don’t even recognize him as the Savior of the whole world. These men and women are void of the Spirit, and have yet to humble themselves and ask to receive Him.

Only with the Spirit of God can the Hebrew please God. Only with the Spirit of God can anyone please God. Trying to obey the laws of God in the flesh will always lead to failure, but if a man is led by the Spirit, he’s not even under the Law and yet fulfills the Law through his life.

The Spirit gives us power to please God and many of these Hebrew Israelites need to be born again so that the Spirit of God can power them to keep his commandments.

With the Spirit of God comes healing from the psychological damage done through centuries of oppression. With the Spirit of God comes, unity, provision and deliverance.

The first step in receiving the Holy Spirit is humility. The Most High said it plainly:

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. (2 Chronicles 7:14)

And if you want to stop sinning and please God, walk in the Spirit:

This I say then, Walk in the Spirit, and ye shall not fulfil the lust of the flesh. 17 For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would. 18 But if ye be led of the Spirit, ye are not under the law. (Gal 5:16-18)

Israel, we need to do four things to be delivered from oppression, and I’m not just talking about the system of white supremacy, but the bondage of sin and Satan. We need to do four things:

  1. Accept our Israelite heritage.
  2. Understand what we did to fail God.
  3. Collectively repent and confess our sins.
  4. Accept the Son and his Spirit.

  1. Amen, Glory be to God! May God fulfill His Word in our hearts, Ezekiel 11:19-20 “And I will give them one heart, and put a new SPIRIT within them. And I will take the heart of stone out of their flesh and give them a heart of flesh, that they may walk in My statutes and keep My ordinances and do them. Then they will be My people, and I shall be their God.

  2. I need a little clarity. Is it that we are cursed by God because of our ancestors sins or is the devil causing these things? It seems to be a combination of both.

    1. We’re cursed because we practice the same sins they didn’t repent of. They didn’t teach their children to please God and so we as a group are doing the same things they did to hurt God. But if anyone one of us decides to obey God and follow him in the Spirit, we are blessed and don’t have to take part in the curses.

      God is allowing Satan to oppress us as a nation, but individually, some of us are blessed because we obey God. “Cursed” just means: bad things happening to a person, no favor etc. When we please God, we get his favor and systems like white supremacy don’t have to affect us for our detriment, but for our good (Romans 8:28-29).
