TRUTH CRUSHED TO THE GROUND WILL RISE AGAIN AS LONG AS SOMEONE IS WILLING TO STAND! When is the last time you saw a picture or painting of Jesus? What did he look like? What kind of hair did he have and how long was it? What was the color of his skin?Was His skin liken to Copper, and His Hair White and liken to lambs wool? So Says the scriptures in the books of Revelation, Ezekiel Danial and Isaiah. have you not read them?
THERE WERE NO EUROPEANS LIVING IN PALESTINE IN JESUS'S TIME, ALL EGYPTIANS AND JEWS WERE CUSHITE /refer to: the historical Kingdom of Kush. an ethnolinguistic group indigenous to Northeast Africa Cushitic peoples. a biblical tribal name, see Cush (Bible) the natives of the Horn of Africa region, see Ethiopid race. ZULU NATION
For too many centuries Christianity has held tightly to the Euro-Jesus. Michael Angelo's painting of his drunk uncle,, which is in the Sixteeth Chapel in Rome. The white skinned, blonde haired, blues eyes Jesus. Where Christianity has spread throughout the world, racism has all too often followed closely behind. Few ethnic groups can claim foul from this cultural aftershock more than our black brethren. Remember Judah had five sons from two black women.
“Princes shall come out of Egypt; Ethiopia shall soon stretch out her hands unto God.” -Psalm 68:31
The Bible is a multicultural book. This statement may sound controversial but archaeology, history, and the text prove it to be true. In 2013 this controversy played out in the media when viewers of The Bible miniseries were upset that Samson was played by a black man. A second controversy occurred when a Fox News broadcaster confidently declared that Santa Claus and Jesus were white, yet when people researched original depictions of Saint Nicolas, they found pictures of a dark brown man. It appears that our faith has been distorted. As we celebrate Black History Month and prepare for Lent, how can uncovering the black presence in the Bible aid us in mourning against the sin of racism? One of the effects of racism is the whitewashing of history and sadly this has taken place even in our biblical studies.
We may say "Well they're just paintings, it's not a big deal. It doesn’t matter what colour he was." But paintings and images have a powerful impact on our perception of reality. What message does it send and what impression does it give children around the world about their messiah when they see him being "owned" by a certain race and bound to a strictly-enforced racial profile? I rest my case and tell you to read the scriptures for yourself, I have and I know the history of this planet.
The truth does what no emancipation proclamation can, it sets you free from the lies and the racial hatred. If Christ's color didn't matter, my stating that He was black, which is the truth, wouldn't upset so many people who are worshiping this little white lie!
