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!
