Doubt it? Then just take a look around you. What do you see? Trees of all shades of green, beautiful flowers of many different shapes, sizes and colors. Colors so bright and some not so bright. It does take our breath away sometimes.
Now another type of color I would like to talk about for just a few minutes. Skin color. We are taught, well a lot of us were, from early childhood that God loves all the little children of the world, red, yellow, black and white. Everyone of us who have accepted God as their personal Savior are His children (Romans 8:16). So, then, why do we have so much trouble with our skin color? You think we aren’t all going to the same Heaven? Think God loves one color more than the other? Where in the Bible does it say that? Is God going to have separate parts of Heaven for the different colors of skin? Well, being I have never been to Heaven, yet, I can’t honestly say, but this I do believe, if God was going to have us all separated then He would have said so. I know in the OLD TESTAMENT God told the people not to enter into marriage with certain people. When the people disobeyed, as you know people will do, some of those places were made barren. There are places that today will not grow anything. But I can’t find where Jesus said anything about color of skin. Can you?
Moses married an Ethiopian woman. When Aaron and Miriam got upset about it, what did the Lord do? First of all He took the side of Moses. Second of all, Aaron was not permitted to enter into the promise land either, and He gave Miriam leprosy, of which He later took off her thanks to Moses asking God to do so. Could this not be telling us what was coming in the later world? Couldn’t this be saying it is alright in the sight of God?
Have you ever stopped to think about the color of skin Jesus had? Well, I guess not. Jesus was dark skinned, brown or whatever color you might like to call it. Anyway, He is not white skinned as we see white. You know what God told John to write about Heaven? He saw a new Heaven coming down…(Rev. 21:2). God showed John a pure river of water of life, clear as crystal coming out the throne of God and out of the Lamb ( surely you know that the Lamb is Jesus). On either side of the river was the tree of life (Rev 22:1-5).
So, now I ask you where is the tree of life? In the Garden of Eden. Where is the Garden of Eden? Where the Euphrates and Tigris Rivers originally met. Where is the place the new Heaven coming down?
We need to all get down off our high horses and think about all this. Get in the Bible, see what God and the Lamb is telling us to do. Live only by God’s instructions and stop all this hate and being lead around by our noses by moral men. There is no moral man alive that can save us or would do for us what God and Jesus has and will continue to do if we only allow Them to do so.
Remember what the greatest commandment was? LOVE… So let’s love each other, red, yellow, black or white.
God’s blessings to each of you,
