Slavery and Oppression
Having already established the Biblical identity of Blacks, Hispanics and Native American Indians as the
Israelites, we shall now examine how Scriptures prophetically witnessed our historical enslavement and current
oppression. One of the more troubling characteristics of God’s people (Israel) is the stubborn refusal to admit
that the current social system we both live under and ignorantly enjoy is designed for our continued mental and
physical oppression. As God, through the prophet Baruch, reminded the Israelites in Babylon of their captivity,
so He reminds the So called Blacks and Hispanics) today: (The Israelites).
Baruch 3:8 "Behold, we are yet this day in our captivity, where thou hast scattered us, for a
reproach and a curse, and to be subject to payments, according to all the iniquities of our fathers, which
departed from the Lord our God."
Similarly, this same willful ignorance marked the Jews (So Called Blacks) during the days of Christ. The Jews
in Jerusalem, under Roman oppression, believed that because they were the children of Abraham and not in
physical bondage, they were free.
John 8:33-34 "They answered him, We be Abraham's seed, and were never in bondage to any man: how
sayest thou, Ye shall be made free?
34 Jesus answered them, Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whosoever committeth sin is the servant of sin."
Evidently, it has always been a common misconception amongst the Jews that slavery and oppression is only
physical. However, such a shallow concept of slavery completely disregards the true source and first cause of
our oppression: sin. We are slaves to sin first before we are slaves to men. And, the oppression of our nation
serves as punishment for willful rebellion to the laws of The Most High. It was Moses who specifically stated that if we refused to observe the Lord’s commandments that He would curse us. These curses accurately depict the present state of the Blacks and Hispanics.
Deuteronomy 28: 15 "But it shall come to pass, if thou wilt not hearken unto the voice of the Lord thy
God, to observe to do all his commandments and his statutes which I command thee this day; that all
these curses shall come upon thee, and overtake thee:"
Disobedience to the laws of God is the ultimate cause of our slavery and oppression.
"32 Thy sons and thy daughters shall be given unto another people, and thine eyes shall look, and fail
with longing for them all the day long; and there shall be no might in thine hand."
The sons and daughters of Negroes were given away during slavery. Sons and daughters of Hispanics and
Indians were also taken away by the Spanish Conquistadors.
"37 And thou shalt become an astonishment, a proverb, and a byword, among all nations whither the
Lord shall lead thee."
One of the many examples of when Blacks were an “astonishment” was the human zoos that became popular in
various countries throughout Europe and America. The zoos displayed captured Negroes to emphasize Black
inferiority to whites. European men and women were astonished at the constitution of our bodies and dark
skin. A proverb is a brief, derogatory saying of the character of Blacks or Hispanics. For example, a common
proverb is “if you want to hide anything from a Black man, put it in a book.” Bywords are racial slurs: Nigga,
coon, wetback, alien, gook, savages, sambo etc.
"47 Because thou servedst not the Lord thy God with joyfulness, and with gladness of heart, for the
abundance of all things;
48 Therefore shalt thou serve thine enemies which the Lord shall send against thee, in hunger, and in
thirst, and in nakedness, and in want of all things: and he shall put a yoke of iron upon thy neck, until
he have destroyed thee."
We serve our enemies (the nations) for all things. In other words, when we look at Blacks and Hispanics today
we are economically powerless, politically disenfranchised, submissive and dependent upon the system of white
supremacy to provide our food, water, clothes, education, socialization, medication, justice and protection. The
yoke of iron was put upon our necks until mental destruction,( mainly christianity) which was why the chains
could have been safely removed after the 13 th Amendment.
"68 And the Lord shall bring thee into Egypt again with ships, by the way whereof I spake unto thee,
Thou shalt see it no more again: and there ye shall be sold unto your enemies for bondmen and
bondwomen, and no man shall buy you."
Exodus 20:2 “ I am the Lord thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the
house of bondage.”
The word “Egypt” is not literal but describes a state of bondage. In verse 68, Moses prophesies of the Trans-
Atlantic slave trade of Blacks and also, the many Indians that were transported back to Europe by the
Conquistadors on slave ships. “No man shall buy you” implies no man shall save you — prophetic of the failure
of Black and Hispanic leadership and liberation movements.
Before we examine further how Scriptures detail the collective injustices committed against the Lord’s people,
we will more precisely identify our oppressors. The Holy Spirit through David lists all nations that have
consulted to oppress the Israelites.
Psalms 83:1-8 "Keep not thou silence, O God: hold not thy peace, and be not still, O God.
2 For, lo, thine enemies make a tumult: and they that hate thee have lifted up the head.
3 They have taken crafty counsel against thy people, and consulted against thy hidden ones.
4 They have said, Come, and let us cut them off from being a nation; that the name of Israel may be no
more in remembrance.
5 For they have consulted together with one consent: they are confederate against thee:
6 The tabernacles of Edom, and the Ishmaelites; of Moab, and the Hagarenes;
Gebal, and Ammon, and Amalek; the Philistines with the inhabitants of Tyre;
8 Assur also is joined with them: they have holpen the children of Lot. Selah."
It is ironic that the tabernacles of Edom (biblical name for the so-called Whiteman) is the first nation listed
that has consulted to cut us off from being a nation. Edom has always supported the systematic genocide of
Negroid and Indian people is an established historical fact. The trans-Atlantic slave trade and numerous
violent Indian removals off American land are only two of the many historic examples of racial genocide. In
addition, the Arabs (Ishmaelites), Chinese(Moab) and Africans(Hagarenes) were also identified as future
Isaiah 3:12 "As for my people, children are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people,
they which lead thee cause thee to err, and destroy the way of thy paths."
Children also contribute to our total despair. Misguided, dysfunctional children, violent gangs and cartel
perpetrators within Black and Hispanic neighborhoods, tend to be young men; and the lack of Black and
Hispanic fathers perpetuates this vicious cycle. Most households in our communities are headed by women and
thus, women rule over the nation. Now, we have seen the biblical definition, cause and description of our present collective decay and subordination, but the question remains as to what are our immediate solutions?
John 8:32, 36 "And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed."
In short, it is knowledge of truth that shall begin the process of national liberation. The truth is embodied
within Jesus Christ, The Son of God, The Savior of the Nation of Israel. Through learning how to follow Him
and obeying His laws, we begin to rid ourselves of the indoctrinate thoughts of the oppressor and take on the
liberating mind of Christ.
Hosea 4:6 "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will
also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will
also forget thy children."
It is for lack of knowledge (knowledge of God’s laws) that we are destroyed, not physical inferiority or a lack
of military power and preparedness; and, if this is the case, then no move toward physical freedom will be
successful unless the mind is freed first. If the internal mind is not freed first, then we debilitate ourselves
before ever having a chance to counteract and respond to the external system of oppression. Therefore, we must
start with teaching Christ in our own homes and socializing our own children with biblical knowledge before
discussing any other practical solutions.
Luke 1:68-71 "Blessed be the Lord God of Israel; for he hath visited and redeemed his people,
69 And hath raised up an horn of salvation for us in the house of his servant David;
70 As he spake by the mouth of his holy prophets, which have been since the world began:
71 That we should be saved from our enemies, and from the hand of all that hate us;"
Psalms 149:7-9 "To execute vengeance upon the heathen, and punishments upon the people;
8 To bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron;
9 To execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his saints. Praise ye the
Rev 13:9-10 "If any man have an ear, let him hear.
10 He that leadeth into captivity shall go into captivity: he that killeth with the sword must be killed
with the sword. Here is the patience and the faith of the saints."
Following mental freedom from sin, rest assured that Christ will physically liberate you from the tyranny of
white supremacy and from the hand of all the nations that have sought your destruction and despise you. In
that day, Jesus Christ will avenge and free you indeed. Praise God!
