The New Leader Of Old
Written by: Olafemi
Now the TRUTH must be observed. A man who will represent all of the spirit of that which should be. A man who took a country from that which has been instilled in their hearts and gained the trust of the souls of a nation. A man who was forced to give up and gain at the very same time.
Many of you don’t understand PROPHECY but spiritually, all that is must be. Some of us are shook up because what was to be close was never close in the first place. Barack Obama, the new president of the United States! The leader of a people who have searched and demanded a Messiah, a deliverer and now have been given a messenger of all that is right.
Time has come to put away all that which is evil and has kept us from loving each other. Time has come to be a people of TRUTH AND RIGHTEOUSNESS. We are brothers and sisters no matter what race, language, country or color separates us. We must come to grips with the fact that our only separation was and is the evil of an angel that can’t be satisfied.
The racism of a nation carried us to this point of reckoning and with eyes wide open we could see that racism could be won over. Many people died because of a hatred that carried mankind from the GARDEN OF EDEN to where we are today. The shame can be overcome and our future can be made better to deal with, only if we begin to share a feeling of BROTHERLY LOVE.
Time has delivered us from slavery and low self-esteem and has given us a role model that again has laid his life on the front lines of destiny. Mankind has been crying out and many times these tears were given a tissue so that the tears could be wiped away. But after our deliverance, we chose to wander in the desert. After our deliverance we decided that being the SON OF THE FATHER OF CREATION was no better than the life of a known criminal. We are all that Barack Obama can be.
He has done what he said that he would do and by the strength of the people he was successful. The strength of the people who wanted CHANGE so badly that they came out of a long and deep and embedded way of life and pulled together and elected a man of distinction to the highest office in the world. But we must remember that this office represents a country that forms a UNITED States.
This means that now that we have over come a milestone, we must work on removing this stone from the hearts of all the people. We must remove the chains of separation and come together in UNITY. We must bond together and form a country that will be the rid of wickedness and evil and most of all hatred towards our fellowman. We must remember that even though CHRIST was called a king, mankind never gave HIM HIS KINGDOM. There were cries coming from a small group in the crowd shouting “Crucify HIM”.
These are the voices we must eliminate. We must show the world that we have elected a man that not only cares in his heart but also cares in our hearts as well. We must look at ourselves and make the CHANGE that we voted for. Among ourselves, we must eliminate those who are bent on keeping us separated from our destiny of FOREVER PEACE. We must take away those minds that are still in denial of what is TRULY HAPPENING.
Barack Obama is the change that we asked for and now we see. But the change is not only in Barack, the change is in U.S. We must remember the poor and the sick and the elderly. We must remember that just because the tax cuts have been made and the medical issues are being resolved there are a people in need of some very desperate measures. There are people who are in positions of disposition and want to be freed. There are addictions that have to be over come. There are criminals who want to be counted in society as citizens in society. There are people without that are dying for an equal chance to prove themselves.
We have stepped over a very high stumbling block but we still have a little ways before we arrive at the mountaintop. We can make it even though the odds are trying to keep us from getting there. We can have peace even when there are more and more devils trying to keep our youth from coming off the corners of insanity. We can find our beginnings even when our history so misguided and torn apart that we can hardly realize our brotherhood.
Our new leader is just an old leader brought back to open the eyes of the blind. Our new leader is an old leader who led an enslaved and misdirected people to the promise land. Our new leader is an old leader who needs us to never give up on each other. Our new leader can only do what we allow him to do. Our new leader can keep us UNITED if only if we TRULY want UNITY. Our new leader of old… Truly another opportunity for US to find our TRUE IDENTITY.
