Truth is a key that unlocks doors. What doors are keeping you from functioning in the fullness of the purpose and calling of the Creator?
So Jesus said to the Jews who had believed him, “If you abide in my word, you are truly my disciples, 32and you will know the truth, and the truth will set you free.” – John 8:31,32
So Yeshua said to the Yehudi sect that followed His teachings that if you “abide” (to stay, endure, remain) in my word or teachings, you are truly my discipline students or of my yoke or my followers and you will know or have knowledge of the truth and this truth will set you free.
I believe with proper identity we side step many of the snares of the enemy.
Removing the ambiguity of our collective identity creates a continuity that alligns us as a people that can facilitate autonomy.

Being AWARE isn’t in contrast of the truth, because the truth is a light that makes us all aware.
It was the moment that I realized I was lost without the Messiah that I became aware of my eternal need of redemption and requirement of repentance!
My wife and I watched the movie “The Birth of a Nation” by Nate Parker and we were greatly inspired and encouraged by our hero Nat Turner and his courage to give his life for the liberation of his and my people. There was a line in the movie where Nat Turner’s character says,” I now read this bible with NEW EYES” it is with new eyes that we become aware of the truth and gain the power to inspire others or AWAKEN others to the truth of who they are.
There are those who denounce Nat Turner as a lunatic and reject him as a hero, and definitely disagree that he understood the bible or was lead by the holy spirit to free his people. The rejection and demonizing of Black liberation is common in our society. Let me inform you that this line of reasoning is deeply embedded into the conscience, and black subjection is reinforced by this country’s christian society. Continue reading
