“COLIN KAEPERNICK” – 49ers Quarterback Refuses To Stand for The National Anthem To Protest American Injustices: Is It UNPATRIOTIC??? Is It DISRESPECTFUL??? And…Does God Even Give a Damn???

colinkaepernickI’ll continue to sit.  I’m gonna continue “to stand” for the people that are being oppressed.   To me…this is something that has to change.  This is because I’m seeing things happen to people that don’t have a voice, people that don’t have a platform to talk and have their voices heard and effect change. So I’m in a position where I can do that, and I’m going to do that for people that can’t.” These words were spoken by San Francisco 49ers colinkaepernicksittingdownquarterback ‘Colin Kaepernick’ in defense of his decision… not to stand… as the national anthem played before a preseason game against the Green Bay Packers, on Friday Night (Aug. 26).   So…what sparked this…now???   In an exclusive interview after the game with the NFL Media…Kaepernick put it this way, “I am not going to stand up to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses black people and people of color.  To me, this is bigger than football and it would be selfish on my part to look the other way. There are bodies in the street and people getting paid leave and getting away with murder.”  Well…

fireYou already know…if you dare to even look at the American flag…sideways…in this country… all “HELL” (literally & figuratively) is going to break loose.   And…it has.    They are throwing all kinds of fire & shit this man’s way.  No joke.    Some folk have even produced videos where they are ‘lighting on fire’ NFL jerseys with Kaepernick’s number on them.  WTHR-TV Sportscaster Bob Kravitz in Indianapolis, commented on August 27…  “I found it interesting, but completely understandable, that when I posed the Kaepernick question on Twitter, the responses broke along racial lines.”  From whites: “If you don’t like America, go somewhere else. Leave. We’ll help you pack.”  From African-Americans: “He is speaking for the oppressed everywhere. Good for him. Stay strong.” ”    NO SURPRISES HERE…huh??? Now…

It is the “Patriotic Folk”… who seem to feel completely insulted & absolutely flagoffended by the fact that Kaepernick refused to stand-up during the playing of the “National Anthem.”    For example…   Yesterday, Mark Davis, writing for the Townhall, states “Intentional public snubs of our cherished national traditions are completelymarkdavisnfltownhallavoidable, and if the NFL won’t do it, every NFL coach should.  We are all free to love or hate our nation as we wish. But when in public, those paid handsomely by ticket-buying spectators need to holster their peevish political urges for the sixty seconds of expected respect for the nation that affords them that freedom.”  O.k…

We are going to look at this situation from how God views it.   And, the beautiful part about this is…God can’t lie.  He only deals in truth.   And, remember…He doesn’t care about your emotions.   Human emotions do not dictate what He says &… what He does.  Soooo…  As his Ambassador…my job is to put forth his messages…to his people…period.   Alright…

starspangledbannerLet’s go back a ways & try to understand how American Patriots/Nationalists see things regarding this country.   American patriotism is no joke.   And, it is definitely not a stretch for me to say that American Patriots/Nationalists hold this country as sacred…in their hearts.   When they sing the National Anthem…or…say the Pledge of Allegiance…it is nothing for streams of tears to involuntarily flow from their eyes.  That’s normal.   Now, don’t misunderstand.   I’m not saying this to be critical.  I’m just speaking the truth.  In addition, the United States Constitution is held in the most highest of regards (if not, the highest) by these Patriots/Nationalists.  It is the supreme law of this land… we call the United States of America.   It was put forth, directly or indirectly, by those men who are called “the Founding Fathers” of this country.   Patriots/Nationalists believe that Americans should be willing to die to protect the rights given to all Americans under the United States Constitution. Now…

Amendment I” of the United States Constitution says: “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free usconstitution2exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.”   So, let me ask this question…    Could Colin Kaepernick’s choice not to stand-up to protest injustices in America be seen as “freedom of speech?”   OF COURSE.    The United States Constitution does not say it protects against the abridging the freedom of speech” unless…you are a NFL quarterback playing for the San Francisco 49ers.   OF COURSE NOT.    It applies it’s rights to all American citizens.   And, because Kaepernick did not scream “FIRE” in a crowded building, his choice not to stand-up is “protected” speech.    So, to all Patriots/Nationalists…  Let me say this…

“You either are going to support the right of “freedom of speech” justicewilliamdouglas1or… your not. You can’t have it both ways.   You can’t qualify it on your terms.  Meaning??? Meaning…my right to freely speak my mind is not determined by whether you happen to agree with me or not.   You see…  When you start putting conditions on my right to freely speak…then, the “free speech” right ceases to exist.   It’s then, free speech…only if “YOU” say it’s free speech.   It’s then, free speech…only if “YOU” agree with what I say.   So…   Mark Davis, when you say to ‘Colin Kaepernick’  that “we are all free to love or hate our nation as we wish, except, when in public at a NFL game during the playing of the National Anthem,” you are saying that the rights established under the United States Constitution… don’t apply to him.    You are saying that you get to dictate to him when he can exercise his “freedom of speech” rights.    And…that shit ain’t in the United States Constitution.   FOR SURE!!!   And, you know what you sound like???   Let me tell you…  You sound like a HYPOCRITE.  His constitutional right not to stand-up is his right…NOT… to stand-up.”  O.k.   Now…

Let’s go a little deeper with this.   Our Heavenly Father is the one… & the godnatureonly… true God.   If we say we are his disciples… then, Jesus expects us to follow what the Father says.   Correct??? Because remember…Jesus says, “37 Everything that the Father gives me will come to me, and anyone who comes to me I will never drive away; 38 for I have come down from heaven, not to do my own will, but the will of him who sent me. 39 And this is the will of him who sent me, that I should lose nothing of all that he has given me, but raise it up on the last day.”  (John 6:37-39).   Meaning?  As followers of Jesus Christ, we are expected to follow in his footsteps.  So…   If Jesus is to do the will of the Heavenly Father, then, we are expected to do the will of the Heavenly Father.   Alright…

The 1st of the Ten Commandments, written by the hands of God… & given thetencommandmentsto his servant Moses says, “And God spoke all these words: I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of Egypt, out of the land of slavery. “You shall have no other gods before me.” ” (Exodus 20:1-3)   Meaning?  Meaning…we are to worship God & God alone.   Meaning…we are not to worship anything other than him.   O.k.    You can say what you want but…I must & I will…with GOD AS MY WITNESS…speak the truth.   “Come Hell or High Water.”  It doesn’t matter to me.   Now, I said that…to say this…

flag2The “American Flag” is ACTUALLY worshiped by MILLIONS of people in this country.   Do you think that it’s a coincidence that people have received “death threats” when they have publicly burnt the “American Flag” in protest of something happening in this country??? HELL NO!!!   Now, think about what I’m saying to you.  Human beings are ready…& willing to kill another human being…for burning an “American usaFlag.”  So…   Some have even given the “American Flag” more value…than…a human life.   Again, I say to you…the “American Flag” is being worshiped by millions.   That’s why the “Pledge of Allegiance” & the “National Anthem” are so revered.   They speak to the absolute love…the absolute honor…the absolute admiration…the absolute respect…& the absolute esteem that is given to the “American Flag.”    Now…

goldencalf2Is this worship of the “American Flag” something that God didn’t expect Americans to do???   OF COURSE NOT.   You remember the golden calf don’t you???   Moses had not even got his butt half-way up the mountain before those rascals had made themselves a golden calf…to worship…in place of God.  And, how did God respond to this???  Let me tell you…

goldencalf3Then the Lord said to Moses, “Go down, because your people, whom you brought up out of Egypt, have become corrupt. They have been quick to turn away from what I commanded them and have made themselves an idol cast in the shape of a calf. They have bowed down to it and sacrificed to it and have said, ‘These are your gods, Israel, who brought you up out of Egypt.’ “I have seen these people,” the Lord said to Moses, “and they are a stiff-necked people. 10 Now leave me alone so that my anger may burn against them and that I may destroy them. Then I will make you into a great nation.” (Exodus 32: 7-10) Now…  In response to what God said…Moses pleaded for God to have mercy on the people.   So, the Father relented and did not bring on his people the disaster he had threatened.  (only…for the time being)  Let’s continue…   levitesMoses came down the mountain.   25 Moses saw that the people were running wild and that Aaron had let them get out of control and so become a laughing stock to their enemies.26 So he stood at the entrance to the camp and said, “Whoever is for the Lord, come to me.” And all the Levites rallied to him.  27 Then he said to them, “This is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says: ‘Each man strap a sword to his side. Go back and forth through the camp from one end to the other, each killing his brother and friend and neighbor.’ 28 The Levites did as Moses commanded, and that day about three thousand of the people died. 29 Then Moses said, “You have been set apart to the Lord today, for you were against your own sons and brothers, and he has blessed you this day.” 30 The next day Moses said to the people, “You have committed a great sin. But now I will go up to the Lord; perhaps I can make atonement for your sin.” (Exodus 32: 25-30)   O.k…

31 So Moses went back to the Lord and said, “Oh, what a great sin these people have committed! They have made themselves gods of bookoflifegodgold. 32 But now, please forgive their sin—but if not, then blot me out of the book you have written.” 33 The Lord replied to Moses, “Whoever has sinned against me I will blot out of my book. 34 Now go, lead the people to the place I spoke of, and my angel will go before you. However, when the time comes for me to punish, I will punish them for their sin.”  35 And the Lord struck the people with a plague because of what they did with the calf Aaron had made.”  (Exodus 32: 31-35)  So, you see…  Our Heavenly Father is indeed a jealous God.   God says what He means &…He means what He says.  He does not take kindly, in any form or fashion, for man to be worshiping anyone or anything…other… than him.    So…

In an effort to prevent man from being tempted to worship anything or tencommandments2anyone…other than him…God also says in his Ten Commandments, You shall not make for yourself an image in the form of anything in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the waters below.You shall not bow down to them or worship them; for I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, punishing the children for the sin of the parents to the third and fourth generation of those who hate me, but showing love to a thousand generations of those who love me and keep my commandments.  (Exodus 20:4-6)   But, as God says…man can be stiff-necked.   Meaning?  Meaning…man will do what man wants to do regardless of what God says.   So, we end up with millions of people worshiping a piece of cloth…we call the “American Flag.” crossgod Now, don’t fool yourself.   God is the same, yesterday…today & forever.   HE CHANGES NOT.  Not Iris’ words, but God’s. The same God that punished the worshipers of the golden calf back then…is the same God… that will indeed punish those who worship the “American Flag” today.   So…  Does God give a damn about someone refusing to stand-up for the singing of the American National Anthem under any circumstances?  HELL NO!   So… Does the Heavenly Father give a damn about someone refusing to say the pledge of allegiance to a flag?  HELL NO!  Why? Because saying a pledge of allegiance to a flag = IDOLATRY in the sight of God.    Why?  Because singing a love song for a flag = IDOLATRY in the sight of God.    So…

I would STRONGLY ADVISE to all of the people who are HATING on anyone who refuses to say the “Pledge of Allegiance”…&/or…sing the “National Anthem”…&/or… stand-up for the singing of the “National Anthem”…&/or…stand-up for the saying of the “Pledge of Allegiance”…&/or…put their hand over their heart when the “Pledge of Allegiance” is being said… to back the #@%* off.   HEAR the words of the Lord & take heed.    Not just for your sake…but…also for the sake of your descendants.   Know this…   My Father will not hesitate to strike your asses down…in a heart beat.   You see…  To God… it’s bad enough that you have chosen NOT to follow his commandments.  But, when you try to force others… to go against the WILL OF GOD & BREAK HIS COMMANDMENTS…you are in a whole other realm of danger.   Jesus says, “ 18 For truly I tell you, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any megodfirehellans disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished. 19 Therefore anyone who sets aside one of the least of these commands and teaches others accordingly will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven.20 For I tell you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Pharisees and the teachers of the law, you will certainly not enter the kingdom of heaven.” (Matthew 5: 18-20)  Now…

I say none of this…to scare you.   I say none of this… to threaten you.  I say this… TO WARN YOU.   But…   You can take it…or leave it alone.  That is your free-will choice.  But, do know this…   GOD IS NOT TO BE PLAYED WITH.   HE IS TO BE… LOVED!!!  HE IS TO BE… FEARED!!!   Again, not Iris’ words, but…God’s.   And…

Remember,  God wants allegiance to him &…to him ALONE.

  1. Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    The Jewish people deny Jesus as their Messiah and have stated that their Messiah has been identified and is waiting to be revealed. They say this man will rule the world under a one world religion called “spiritualism”.

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple.

    The Bible says this false Messiah who seats himself in the Third Temple will be thee antichrist that will bring about the Great Tribulation, though the Jewish people believe he will bring about world peace. It will be a false peace for a period of time. You can watch interviews of Jewish Rabbi’s in Israel speaking of these things. They have their plans set in place. It is only years away!

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically Revelation 13:16-18:

    He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name.” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we need two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.
