A Legacy of Love

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness: only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate: only love can do that.”
—Martin Luther King Jr.

This picture always gets me. The way he pulls out that once burning cross which had become a symbol of racial hatred. He doesn’t react with outrage, or even with sorrow. He doesn’t tell his son to stay indoors but allows him to come out and watch. He removes it gently from his yard, and you can almost feel that he had already forgiven those who committed the crime.

He practiced forgiveness just as Christ did when he died on that same symbolic cross. And like Christ, Martin lived a life of love and selflessness as His disciple.

Martin Luther King Jr. was a Godly man. He was a pastor who sought equality, fought against the grain of governmental control, moral relativism, and communism, and did so through the blueprint of Biblical teaching.

Quite honestly, if he saw our America today he would probably weep. Racism is being stirred up by the media to use as a catalyst to acquire more control over its people both black and white!

African Americans are being treated as victims much in the way we later treated the native Americans. Giving them a welfare state of existence—-hardly equality and completely demoralizing! And white Americans (a mixing pot of many nationalities), are being taught that they are inherently evil and incurably racist, which is in turn a bigoted racial belief.

And who is behind this push for hate, distrust, and fear amidst races, religions, and parties?

The political figureheads of our country. Namely the democratic/“woke” extremists who have an agenda for power and wealth.

“For the love of money is the root of ALL evil.”—1 Timothy 6:10

Even on Martin Luther’s day of remembrance, agendas were promoted (as you may clearly see through Biden’s speech) and secretly intertwined throughout the fabric of our country and its spheres of influence: such as media, education, and entertainment.

They claim to want what Martin Luther wanted, however they are mere wolves in sheep’s clothing, standing against what Martin believed and fought for!

They may not erase him as they did many other historical figures because of his color. However, they will do him far worse by erasing who he was….his very legacy of love.

Here are some of his many great quotes:

“Our lives begin to end the moment we become silent about the things that matter.”

“Now is the time to make real the promises of democracy.”

“We must learn to live as brothers or we will perish together as fools.”

“You are not makers of history, you are made by history.”

“The time is always right to do what is right.”

“Love is the only force capable of transforming an enemy into friend.”

“To ignore evil is to become accomplice to it.”

“It is not possible to be in favor of justice for some people and not be in favor of justice for all people.”

“If I cannot do great things, I can do small things in a great way.”

“Everybody can be great because anybody can serve.”

“Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.”

“Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity.”

….the list goes on. Martin was not afraid of the truth, not afraid to stand up for it at great personal risk, or even at risk to his family. He trusted in God and knew that he was merely a vessel to be used by Him to bring about a better tomorrow.

He would’ve stood firm in that truth even today as he was quite accustomed to persecution from every side. Including his own community at times…

And so, let’s truly honor him by living our lives as he lived his. With unshakable faith and love.

God bless you all, my brothers and sisters of Christ, who come from many different lands, speak in different tongues, and all reflect the very image of God.

  1. Reblogged this on Zero Lift-Off and commented:
    Good of you to focus on this over all perspective about darkness and light!

    And this is what we get when you have a supercharged materialistic self-centered pagan hedonistic superficial world system with way too many phony people that talk crap and try to promote it as meaningful important information! Look at the leadership around the planet and we can see most are desperadoes, atheist dictators or plain old madmen that are severely dangerous and shouldn’t be trusted around anyone while their backs are turned let alone ruling nations! Monsters from hell are what we are seeing globally and many are on par with Hitler and some it’s hard to believe are exponentially worse! The main characters that pulled off the biggest organized crime in history calling it a pandemic and all humans must get their jabs are the culprits I’m talking about with all of their facilitators in MSM and Entertainment, and yet they are walking around more free than any of us little people!

    Sure this can all change in a heartbeat if Jesus Christ were to return but we are supposed to take responsibility for caring for the planet and all life especially the “most vulnerable, helpless and innocent!” Try to tell me that abortion isn’t an industrial scale operation and that the human parasite who dwells in the White House of all places who appropriated 467$Billion during his first 100 days in office how that supposed human being isn’t a possessed monster from hell! And yet for decades even we Americans have been letting all this evil slide and going lone trying to be fancy and get things or show off making a name for ourselves to be the so called winners in the material world like say the ever so wicked and skanky Taylor Swift! We all have been living on the doorstep of Hell itself and pretending like all is fine and we don’t mind as long as I get what I want each day lifestyle like spoiled rotten brats that have to get their own way!

    Culture Shock on the Highway to Hell

    Anyone that thinks that have pulled the wool over the eyes of others is going to be sadly mistaken when the judgment comes for each and every soul. The ways things are it could be any minute so let them keep playing their foolish twisted games!

    God bless all those who has suffered and are suffering in this demented wicked world that got too far out of control and it’s not changing for the better at all nor is there any substantive positive changes happening fast enough to stop this in a sense; sinking ship!

    Quite a while ago I reblogged another of your postings and here is part of what I was saying there to use now for a comparative assessment of how little things have changed for the better!

    I decided just now to leave your blog with a very long commentary I just made on another blog site I follow religiously, because I’ve decided recently to not spread myself thin wasting lots of time bouncing around blogs to put a like or get one! My time is precious and I want to speak with a handful of people that see things clearly and pretty close to how I do; then we in turn can each hold fast to truth and each share it with a few others, who hopefully in turn will do the same and so on.

    The youngest generations are being brainwashed and manipulated about our history and what America germinated from and why! What we call our American Democrat Party is no such thing but is a radically evil concoction inspired by Hell; as well the GOP are an assortment of self-serving phonies also; very few are carrying any mantle of the True Republic under God; just look a Mitch and his real inner workings to see
    what I mean; a total failure and enemy of the People! Our government is beyond crisis and is in terminal condition; and we need God here more than ever before!

    You’re speaking the Truth here and very well said I might add! Europe and Canada are sliding into the abysmal pit of Capitulation and even acceptance of Evil as people are either brainwashed or too derelict to care about making any effort to resist what will eventually swallow them whole if not stopped! The crusades by the way were generally a resultant reaction to what preceded them when the Muslims following the false prophet Muhammad after his final proclamation that Christianity is not acceptable to God and that all Christians, Jews or any others must convert to Islam or be put to death! Those were horrible times and yes some of the inquisitors perhaps enabled by the Roman Catholic Church Hierarchy along with monarchy leadership of those nations, got over zealous and hurt many of their own in the war that was raging on to free Europe from the grip of the largest Caliphate in history when the Muslims killed, raped and enslaved multitudes of people; so you want to talk about slavery talk about its original origins under Islam or even the Ancient Egyptian Empire doing the same for thousands of years to build and establish their kingdom. I want to share a couple of blogs I wrote with you and anyone who is interested to just add a bit of my perception of what the Truth is; much of the American Birth you and I agree on in spades! The truth had been rewritten and perverted by sinister left wing radicals that hate America and let’s just say the Truth! They work for Satan make no mistake about that!

    These United States of America Founded under God part II

    The Enemy of Civilization; Islam

    So now that things have actually gotten much worse than just a couple of years ago how can this all be sorted out comprehensively and safely when there is rampant corruption and evil throughout; from the very top down to the bottom! We know the only answer can be Jesus. But meanwhile each of us must correct ourselves as much as we possibly can while doing whatever things that are within our reach to inform and maybe even provide hands on help to do the actual will of God to repair where and when He directs us to.
    Just today I wrote these responses to two other postings which I will share the links in case it may provide some insight for anyone reading your blog.
    God bless you and yours,
    Brother in Christ Jesus,
    Lawrence Morra III

    1. Thanks Lawrence, your last paragraph really hit it home. We must be the hands and feet of Jesus here on the Earth. We are the answer (oftentimes) to our prayers. Faith requires action, and in Martin Luther King Jr.’s life, that action was standing firm in both truth and love. They go hand-in-hand. One cannot separate the two otherwise we become mere Bible thumpers calling out to the masses, “turn or burn!” That message never saved anyone and only fanned the flames of hatred against the church. Just as 1 Corinthians 13:1 says: “if I speak in the tongues of man and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal.”

      God bless, thanks for the repost!

      1. Hi Sister Hope! First of all I send my prayer for Almighty God to bless you and your entire family in the precious name of Jesus. I agree with what you’ve pointed out here with great clarity and wisdom! You are holding true to your Faith in Jesus Christ and thus following the Father’s will as He inspires us to do through His Holy Spirit while of course consuming His Holy Words in the Bible.

        What I actually did to answer you here was to cover again a few points I was making when I responded to your posting; but because it was a lot I figured it best to make this new essay while incorporating my answer to you along with points I needed to clarify more! Here are a few portions of it with the link to the new posting to read the entire essay, it’s long!

        So I hope you have time to check all of the links and read it all when you’re not busy, which I’m sure you are very! But all I say here is from my heart and based on knowledge, experience but most important on how God’s Holy Spirit has moved me on a number of occasions and this wasn’t any different today!

        I Hope it all does some good!
        I’m happy to know I can at least speak to Truth as I really see it.

        I also see a problem besides Bible Thumpers which are too many “wishy-washy spiritual blenders” thinking they are showing others truth by being very selective choosers of Scriptures to promote a self-indulgent perspective or let’s say a modernistic PC or let’s be all inclusive gig which actually is causing many to stray from the Faith and “will of God” creating a secular man-made church system and the evidence of what I’m saying is rampant and in our faces! If you take the time to examine all of the information and other essays I provided these are just a few of the multitude of examples of what is Really Going On! We have multitudes of youth that put Taylor Swift on a pedestal and she is serving the beast system and Satan without a doubt! Even a so called Catholic woman who gains popularity on social media that I had to part ways with was doing just what I said, and even said the current so called pope is someone to support when she and anyone with a clue should know he is a Freemason sort of World System Pope, which is ludicrous as he is blaspheming God continually and then there is the Presbyterian church that says abortion is fine and they support it!

        If anyone thinks I’m a Bible Thumper so be it I’ll accept that title as I know it’s not true and what I am is a man who will stand toe to toe with any evil on earth and not back down! When nobody takes a stand anymore then the world and all the people on it is done for! How else did WWII not end up being a victory for Hitler! When the going is tough the tough get going is how I see the task before us not any wishy-washy or oh let’s now look at really and want to deal with it lets just all sit around and talk nonsense like so many do who bring up religion and Jesus but are not in fully and willing to stand putting it all on the line, and I mean all so many are like this on the internet! I love talking many other subjects which I can look at as enjoyable and heartfelt fun topics! But when it comes to Jesus Christ and why I’m on earth that is when it’s time to separate the men from the boys and the woman from the girls!
        God bless.
