Kaepernick, ex-NFL quarterback.


When the ex-NFL San Fransisco's 49ers' quarterback Colin Kaepernick had decided to sit rather than stand during the national anthem's airing at one of the club's preseason game in 2016 as is the culture, he had acted in protest against racial injustice, police brutality and systemic racism in the United States. His decision had drawn a huge suspicion of Colin's intent. A bad feud ensued amongst white America who had thought that the footballer's action had been unpatriotic! 

The next week, and throughout what was left of his career, Mr. Kaepernick had knelt on a knee throughout the season: He'd been met with a huge national outcry from those whose right sense of patriotism and moral judgment had been wronged! The 49ers' management had bowed to the social pressure and call to dispense off, of his quality services! Soon, the powers that ruled the sport had also decided to leave Kaepernick unsigned, since 2017. That was until he took them to court. For his income loss, both parties had reached a financial settlement. He would never be able to play in the NFL again, and the conscience of racism that hated being rocked by the truth had yet once again being lulled to coma, by the power of backhand money!

Then jolted it into consciousness again by one unknown, unrecognizable, 'not-common' type of emotive scenario made possible through the recording of a bystander on May 25, 2020. A truthful, gruesome scenario that had revolved around the merciless, inhumane murder of the 46-year-old, father-of-three, Floyd George, a Texan, resident of Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA.

As is seen in the video, 44-year-old caucasian cop, Derek Chauvin, had had Mr. Floyd in custody already: Hands cuffed behind his back, face-down, the assailant had deliberately knelt on George's back and neck for a total of 08 minutes and 46 seconds, even as the deceased had pleaded for his life: "Please officer, I can't breathe ..." 

Held under that pressure, Floyd had wee on himself, on that hot, laterite coaltar street, across from the store where he had been alleged to have passed a fake $20 currency for which the Police had been called out on him. Every passing second, as his life had ebbed away, blood had streaked from his nose and in his dying moments, he had called for his dead momma as the murderer had maintained pressure on his neck which pressure had caused his death by asphyxiation! Floyd George had died a martyr of the Black Lives Matter and had fueled the debate calling for wide-sweeping reforms in Police brutality and an end to systemic racism of all types, worldwide! I don't think that the world-wide renown and accolades showered upon George Floyd in his death had strictly been a result of his exemplary lifestyle. No, far from it. But because his rights under the United States Constitution had been grossly violated as was in the days of slavery, protests broke out in major cities of every country in the world, crowds of masses despising the social-distancing rule to unite in solidarity, whites, and blacks, Catholics and Protestants, Jews and Gentiles, marching and protesting against the subjugation of the black race and people of color in America, and right across the world!  In the former case, corporate America had castigated the Kaepernick as a traitor of American ideals. In the latter, it had decided to be tongue-tied in denouncing Chauvin's less-than-heroic racial murder. The powers that be looked the other way for more than a week before Chauvin had been arrested. And the three other officers, still yet further, more days before they would be brought in! Let's all pray that justice is served! "He has shown you, O man, what is good; And what does the LORD require of you. But to do justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with your God?" (Micah 6:8).  My question to you is simple: "Which knee was deadlier?" Let me hear from you! #Erradicate #Systemic #Racism #Slavery




If you are a Blood-bought child of God, it would please you to learn that God had — before the formation of the Earth — chosen to display His glory through you on Earth!  Would you know why? It is because, you are His redeemed through the atoning sacrifice of His Son, Jesus Christ, on the cross on Golgotha’s hill!  That word 'atoning', is huge. It had been derived from the Law. The Law had comprised of the first five books of the Bible commonly called the Pentateuch cannon! These are the collection of books God had dictated to Moses the Prophet.  Moses was the Law-giver. Jesus Christ is the Grace-giver!  'Atoning' is a derivative of the word 'atonement'. It means: "To make at-one-ment with God, of a soul!" In other words, an angry God's wrath had been forever pacified and acquiesced by the sacrifice of the Just One, Jesus Christ Who had suffered “the just for the unjust” that He, through His death, might re-unite a sinful world of mankind to God!  Apostle Peter expressed the doctrine of atonement most succinctly:

"For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit" | 1 Peter 3:18.

You and have been atoned for, by the ever-living, once-and-for-all, valid sacrifice of the Lamb of God! We were redeemed — bought back, re-purchased, with an unquantifiable price of Christ's sacrificial death! I know this is true because I too am a living witness of Christ’s sacrificial redemptive power. I am all the Great I AM is because He made me alive by His very own life! He breathed life into — and upon me. He called me out, equipped, and fortified me with His very Zoe-life, the very life of Father-God's Spirit designed to tabernacle within mankind! For the lone reason that I am redeemed from eternal condemnation, I am forever indebted to extolling His graciousness unto me: "For the grave cannot praise thee, death can not celebrate thee: they that go down into the pit cannot hope for thy truth. The living, the living, he shall praise thee, as I do this day: the father to the children shall make known thy truth." 

| Isaiah 38:18-19

"The dead praise not the Lord, neither any that go down into silence."                                                                                           | Psalms 115:17 Would you then, rejoice and praise God for His atoning sacrifice for you upon the cross? His atonement made you shine! 


Were God human, He'd have experienced a confusing moment of choosing between His royalty: The glory of Heaven and the angels  and His loyalty to the glory of the yet unfathomed depths of His created planets, galaxies, the Milky Ways and the Earth! Yet, unquestionably, no other planet had the Creator-God invested His greatest assets into, like our Earth — and its inhabitants! Without a doubt, therefore, His choice had been unrivaled: The Blue Planet will forever remain very special to Him because of at least these two, uncomplicated reasons:

First, the Earth inhabits homo sapiens. That is, human beings! These are essentially spirit-beings, created in the exact replica of God’s spiritual likeness! This truth, the Scripture teaches, in the creation story. When I say 'the creation story', I am deliberately well-intended away from referencing my source from any human theories or theorists like Darwin — and/or other evolutionists. Rather, I am pitching my throw from the Bible, God’s Holy Word: “So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.” | Genesis 1:27 Second, the Earth, at the very beginning had borne the replica of Heaven  God’s dwelling place. It had been the Creator’s mindset that it should resemble Heaven in all semblance, for all eternity! Whichever angle you view it from, God had been pre-consumed with replicating Himself! Notice, I did not write “duplicating”. There is a huge difference between both: The duplication process involves watering down an original piece. And you and I know that God would never be involved in a shady, watered-down, deal! That why He produces replicas! Father-God reproduces replicas of the originality of His purpose through humans! You and I are replicas, not duplicates! We are the replicas of the Almighty, creative, Creator-God! And because He is creative, God allotted extraordinary abilities to gifted and talented humans  thus affording them a great level of ingenuity! Hence, we are geniuses in our gifting and talents! This is a major reason you must not be discouraged at setting your foot onto the pathway of discovering your identity, no matter how rough such a pathway may prove to be. Rather, you must immerse yourself in both the discovery and the mastery of the possible ‘oddities’ embedded with that gift and/talent  no matter how ‘odd’ it may originally present itself to your thoughts!  Do you live like God's replica of royalty and loyalty?  It's high time you began to, today!
