Subject: A Need For Men and Women of God in Politics!
Dear Preachers and Those in Ministry:
I need some bold preachers to go with me into the lion’s den!
I am a veteran African American Republican who in 1979, God sent into the Republican Party to bring about change and to bring down the walls of prejudice and call the party back to the place of its original birth as the Party of Lincoln.
This has not been an easy battle. I have shared those experiences in the book I wrote, Black Eyes Shut – White Lips Sealed (victorysongcollectionspublications.com). Yet I have stood against all odds, and now it is time to take it to the next level.
What I have seen is that the racism, mean spiritedness and the foolishness that is within the Republican Party is mostly at the top. Those who rise to the top, in most cases are the perpetrators. But when you go to the grass roots level, this almost is not there or it is in lesser degrees. Many at the grass roots level are those who believe what we believe, work with us and even share sweet fellowship. However, when you begin to get involved at the party level, this is where the demons of racism rear their heads and stand as gatekeepers.
Having taught American Government, State and Local Government and International Politics and Culture of Non-Western Countries as a political science professor at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga, I understand government at all levels – even globally. I know what it will take to break the hold and to get pass the political gatekeepers. Sit-in and protests will do absolutely nothing! Even prayer alone will not suffice. But with the power of prayer, as well as the wisdom of God, we have to move into both parties and carve out a place for ourselves as Americans, if we want to share in America’s political power base. Yes, this means moving even into the Republican Party.
As the national chair for the Black Republican Women Organization, I began back in 1987 recruiting African American women into the GOP, who were not willing to be tokens, but who could retain their blackness.
Presently, I head the National Republican African American Caucus. It is a unique republican organization because it allows African Americans to be a part of a collective body that can and will bring about change. Our goal is 1.5 million by 2012, and 500,000 in 2010. You may ask why so many? It is because political strength is in numbers! In politics, believe it or not, it has very little to do with color. It has to do with numbers and the ability to write the check. If you can show you have a substantial number of people who can stand as a voting block, and have the ability to finance your own cause, then you become a significant player within the political landscape. This is the ONLY way that we gain and retain political power. This is how we as African Americans get to the table, have a voice and place ourselves in appointed and elected positions. This is how we stop some of the foolishness that is going on in politics.
As an African American Republican, I proudly voted for President Obama in the general election. But his ability to win was because he was able to get beyond the gatekeepers and become a political player within the Democratic Party. Now we have to do the same thing within the Republican Party!
Having said all of this, I need men and women of God who will join with me to fulfill this mandate, and will join the NRAAC and even begin local caucuses. I don’t want everyone! Because it is important to remain political players in both parties. We need to be in the Democratic and Republican parties. I just need a significant number of praying people, and those who are strong and can take a stand for what is right to come into the Republican fold, so that our voices are heard.
I ask you to go to the NRAAC website at www.nraacaucus.org and see what we are all about. Then pray about this and see if you are one of the ones who God is saying, “I call you to take a stand on the other side (the Republican Party), so that you can make a difference.”
Also see if perhaps God is calling you to serve in a leadership capacity. In November, we will be making new appointments of regional and state chairs, and advisory board and national board members. If you are interested, and decide to become a member, you may submit your name, bio/resume for consideration.
I look forward to those of you who are godly and truly believe in justice and compassionate, yet self-responsibility and responsible government, joining our ranks!
…And for those of you who already are Republicans, we welcome you to the family of African American Republicans.
Let’s ALL go forth, and make a positive difference regardless of which party we are in!
Feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com, and to pass this e-mail on. Tennessee also has a state caucus at www.tnraacaucus.org. The websites for other states should be up by the end of October 2010. We welcome members from all states!
Look forward to hearing from you and even seeing you at the April 9th – 10th NRAAC Conference. Our theme: Setting the Republican Agenda to Include People of Color.
In His Service,
Dr. Jean Howard-Hill, Nat’l Chair
Don't get caught up in ambition, but continue in the commission of Jesus Christ.
"Anyone who wishes to be a follower of mine must leave SELF behind. he must take up his cross, and come with me." Mark 8:34
Brothers and Sisters in Christ, it's a thin line between personal ambition and going in God's Divine commission of salvation. Question yourself, are you preaching for position, recognition, title, fame, and fortune? Are you trying to out do the next church or ministry. Are you trying to out do your neighbors?
Be careful, for the spirit of the antichrist is out deceiving God's men and women. For many are trying to become great in the Kingdom of God in their own strength. Let us not forget that Christ alone is the Great One (The Great I AM). We are His sheep in His pasture. We are called by Him, not ourselves. It is Christ that live in us, for we should all be dead to ourselves.
That which we seek is God's Divine Kingdom, not foundations laid by the hands and the ambition of mankind. Let's us not become as James and John, assuming the Kingdom of God is worldly. That it is based upon human influence and personal preferment (promoting yourself, but saying it's of God).
Let us not forget the Cross on Calvary. Let us die daily to ourselves. It's not about you. It's about God's Heavenly Kingdom...
We die daily to the things of the world. Let us examine ourselves and see if we are in the faith. Take up your cross and follow Christ. Die deadly, never forgetting the Great Commission of Christ.
Brother YahsNiviim is teaching that God’s name is YHWH.
Brother James Pierce is teaching that God’s name is Yeshua.
Brother Abraham Israel is teaching that God’s name is Yahweh.
Jamie and Sara Church is teaching that God’s name is Yahuah.
Brother Trevor T. Greene is teaching that God’s name is Yahweh.
REV.DAVID AMOH –ASANTE teaches that God’s name is Yeshua.
Dr. Brenice Aliyah Fireangel teaches that God is Yahshua Ha Machiach.
Apostle Ted Quinichette Williams call God Yodh He Waw He.
I discern or sense that he is going to go through a period of great pressure that only God will be able to bring him out of, much like Jonah in the whale. This is going to cause him to cry out to God from a deeper place than he ever has before. I believe its going to happen before he gets out of office. This< I believe will be the difference between him having an okay presidency to becoming a great presdient.
Yes, we must pray for President Obama. I think he has a good heart but is definitely misguided on some of his ideas. I do believe however, that he is going to have a supernatural experience with God before he is out of office that will change his politics. Thank you man of God for your thoughts on the blogs I have posted. I sincerely appreciate your involvement.
Greetings man of Yah,
I pray that you and your family are having a wonderful day in Yahweh.
My goodness... your wife looks like one of my cousins. They say we all have someone that looks like us in the world. Continue... to spead the News about our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I thank Yah for you.
