One day *Ferguson was a normal under-performing suburb with families and immigrants and refugees trying to get along their daily lives, some living hand-to-mouth, some on the street, some doing better. Ferguson is just like a lot of other outlying burbs next to major cities, some do better or worse than others. In this economy, I would call Ferguson ‘normal’. And just like most burbs next to major cities, Ferguson has a median income of $36K, median home of $92K, lost about 5% of population since the last census, 65% black/30% white; in other words, Ferguson is doing way better economically than most burbs next to major cities, including where I live. But what we did not know was how Ferguson was hanging precariously in the balance. The racial divide was about to erupt.
Predicting this racial eruption was not as hard as you would think, if you add the slumping economy into the mix. People on hard times react differently than normal, they feel cornered and on edge. Life is hard when there is limited work and opportunities.
And then August 9th happened. It was the match that lit a fire, and that fire spread from all over Ferguson and across the country, causing racial division and hatred. This was not a civil rights case, and if it were, it does not give leeway to commit crimes of any kind. People of Ferguson and across the country decided to commit crimes in Mike Brown’s name to give it ‘credibility’ and an excuse.
However, this article is not about Michael Brown, it is about the effect his case made to make normal every day people to loot, set fires, roll cars, etc. This is about how close we are to every religion or race to erupt and cause what may be irreversible harm and injury to everyone.
American citizens are being indoctrinated with Islam, it being called a ‘peaceful religion’. We see muslims literally imported to the United States taking our own resources we cannot have. Schools are allowing Islam in, forcing Christianity OUT. Some schools have field trips to mosques, girls told to wear hijab. But as I just mentioned, the resources are given to them while decent tax paying citizens are living in their cars and eating at soup kitchens because these so-called refugees are given whatever they want, including money to open their own business, etc.
Peaceful? Peace loving? So were the residents of Ferguson. So were the residents of Los Angeles in the South Central riots of 1992 that killed 53. So were the residents of Detroit in the Race Riots of 1967 that killed 43. The list of riots that was caused by race, religion or economics is enormous. In other words, people riot or cause war because of an injustice or perceived injustice. Remember that Rodney King said, “Can’t we all get along?” We war each other but a new war is on the horizon.
As I said earlier, this article is not about Ferguson, but what happened to Ferguson and Los Angeles and Detroit should remind us that riots and war can happen with just one match.
Obama has once again stepped on the toes of our Founding Fathers with the blood of Christians being beheaded by Islam, and more recently 40 people were set on fire while still alive. And don’t believe the out loud ‘disassociation’ with ISIS from Islam, certainly ISIS isn’t Buddhist or Baptist – they are ISLAM; they all read the same Koran.
Obama said, “No religion is responsible for terrorism…..And we are not at war with Islam…..Islam has been woven into the fabric of our country since its founding” which is all a diabolical lie. Religion put Jesus Christ on a Cross to die a humiliating public death, just to name ONE act of religious terrorism. See the White House conference on “countering violent extremism” video here and read the rest here. Obama’s facts are just a bit off. Why? Because Barack Hussein Obama is protecting Islam in America.
The Koran teaches Islam to hate Christians, to kill them. This plays out in plain sight and still no one pays attention. Since 9/11, Americans are lulled asleep with lies of a religion that hates them. Our resources are used against us while our ‘president’ looks on.
The Michael Brown Effect is close, all of the pieces are in place for Islam to rise in the United States, first to cause unrest, if you can call it that after 9/11 – and then war. Just like Ferguson, every day life was what it was, predictable. And today we are just as asleep at the wheel as they were. Did Ferguson know they would riot on August 8th? No…and neither do Americans trust in the signs of the times while Islam consumes Christians one country at a time. Just one match can set a fire; just one death can cause a riot. What will it take for Islam to make sense to the average individual that they will take no prisoners?
What Ferguson did not realize is that all the pieces were in place on August 8th, tensions were high and tight, ready to do battle. What they did not know is when. When hate and race and religion are picked at long enough, August 9th will happen again – this time with Islam.
The Church needs to know their community so well that they can sense a change in the weather. Pastors are not watchman as they are called to be. If Pastors cannot discern the times, then how can they righteously arm their flock properly with the knowledge of the Word of God and the times to come?
What will be that one match to start that fire? Until that day, we may not know. Active terrorism in America is a breath away, the signs are obvious and the sky is dark. Make no mistake Christian – we will see tribulation. Soon. Because America has been tolerant, nearly to death.
Jesus said, “When it is evening you say, ‘It will be fair weather, for the sky is red’; and in the morning, ‘It will be foul weather today, for the sky is red and threatening.’ Hypocrites! You know how to discern the face of the sky, but you cannot discern the signs of the times.” Matthew 16:2-3
“So you, son of man: I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel; therefore you shall hear a word from My mouth and warn them for Me.” Ezekiel 33:7
Christian, you may think you know persecution, but I assure you that the 21 Coptic Christians would disagree with you. Persecution is coming to America, to the Church, and to every Christian in the name of a ‘peaceful religion’ and Obama has nodded in approval.
