There is only one race. That is how the Lord God created it. That is the human race, better known as mankind. Throughout the Lord God's Constitution, meaning the Bible, as many understand it to be; it never refers to mankind as "races". The question is, why? Because there is only one race! Even when the Lord God was to give punishment to those who failed to obey Him, He never used the term "races", but He used the term people or nations. You must offer the meat and blood of your burnt offerings on the altar of the Lord your God. The blood of your other sacrifices must be poured out on the altar of the Lord your God, but you may eat the meat...When you drive out the nations that live there, you must destroy all the places where they worship their gods—high on the mountains, up on the hills, and under every green tree... They offered sacrifices on all the hilltops, just like the nations the Lord had driven from the land ahead of them. So the people of Israel had done many evil things, arousing the Lord’s anger. He also used the term "language". When the apostle John was on the Island of Patmos, the language used was people, tribe, nation and tongue. You are worthy to take the scroll and break its seals and open it. For you were slaughtered, and your blood has ransomed people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation...After this I saw a vast crowd, too great to count, from every nation and tribe and people and language, standing in front of the throne and before the Lamb. They were clothed in white robes and held palm branches in their hands... And for three and a half days, all peoples, tribes, languages, and nations will stare at their bodies. No one will be allowed to bury them... And the beast was allowed to wage war against God’s holy people and to conquer them. And he was given authority to rule over every tribe and people and language and nation... And I saw another angel flying through the sky, carrying the eternal Good News to proclaim to the people who belong to this world—to every nation, tribe, language, and people...It flowed down the center of the main street. On each side of the river grew a tree of life, bearing twelve crops of fruit, with a fresh crop each month. The leaves were used for medicine to heal the nations.
Keep in mind, the enemy has deceived the people on earth through the term "race". That is a method to divide the people of God. On the day that the Governor (meaning the Holy Spirit) came upon and in those that were in the upper room, the words used were: people, nation and tongues. On the day of Pentecost all the believers were meeting together in one place. Suddenly, there was a sound from heaven like the roaring of a mighty windstorm, and it filled the house where they were sitting. Then, what looked like flames or tongues of fire appeared and settled on each of them. And everyone present was filled with the Holy Spirit and began speaking in other languages, as the Holy Spirit gave them this ability. They were of the same mindset. There were no divisions among them. None were claiming to be a Pharisee, Sadducee or even a Scribe. In today's terms, no one was claiming to be a Catholic, a Baptist, a Pentecostal or any other denomination. They are all of a Kingdom mindset. There is nothing stated about men of a different race. There were men from every nation, all part of the human race and now the Kingdom. At that time there were devout Jews from every nation living in Jerusalem.
Throughout God's Constitution, there is no mention of different races, because He only created one. So, how did it come about? It was devised by the evil one to separate mankind, and you must admit, he did a very good job of deceiving the world. If someone says that they have a problem with your "race", in essence they are saying they have a problem with your color, culture or the environment that you were raised in. Those of us who have a Kingdom mindset, know that in the Kingdom government, color, culture, language, etc, are all subject to the Kingdom. Regardless of the language you speak, the color of your skin or the cultures and traditions of your family, you only have one obligation; and that is to the King and His Word. Heaven and earth will disappear, but my words will never disappear.
Remember, when the Lord God separated the people, He did it through language. At one time all the people of the world spoke the same language and used the same words. As the people migrated to the east, they found a plain in the land of Babylonia and settled there.
They began saying to each other, “Let’s make bricks and harden them with fire.” (In this region bricks were used instead of stone, and tar was used for mortar.) Then they said, “Come, let’s build a great city for ourselves with a tower that reaches into the sky. This will make us famous and keep us from being scattered all over the world.”
But the Lord came down to look at the city and the tower the people were building. “Look!” he said. “The people are united, and they all speak the same language. After this, nothing they set out to do will be impossible for them! Come, let’s go down and confuse the people with different languages. Then they won’t be able to understand each other.”
In that way, the Lord scattered them all over the world, and they stopped building the city. That is why the city was called Babel, because that is where the Lord confused the people with different languages. In this way he scattered them all over the world.
One race--one mindset--united in the Kingdom.
As always, remember your most valuable asset is your faith in the King's Word.
