As a people, we've always exemplified the most strength when we were together versus being apart. The enemy knows this. This is why so much work was done to ensure that we'd be separated. We're much more conquerable when we are divided.
In this foreign nation which we unwillingly reside, the pledge is as follows:
"I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."
But what are we truly pledging to when we recite these words? Let's break it down.
"I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands..." The American Flag has symbolism that should be properly addressed.
The Stripes: the original 13 Colonies [New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, Connecticut, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Georgia]
The Stars: the 50 states of the Union
The Colors: Red, White, and Blue
That's cute that the stripes are representative of the first colonies which claimed their stake in a land that was not their own. I wonder if they took into account the millions of stripes that were given to my people who were in subjugation to the wickedness and pillaging that was done. 13 is a modest number for sure. And to top it all off, take a look at this very telling photo.
But let's continue.
Oh the stars, how beautiful they are looking down upon us each night. Twinkling in the sky offering hope of an escape from prison that is this great America. The stars of this flag tell us a much different history. Confederates vs the Union. Yay! The Union won. Slavery is over. Every man now has his freedom. There are no more worries of being stripped from our heritage. No more worries of not being offered the same opportunities as those who fit freedom's description. Oh how false this fake victory was for those who suffered the most from it. What were we fighting for again?
Red, white, and blue. Let's refer back to the lovely bullet points above.
Red symbolizes hardiness and valor. Hardiness by definition is the ability to endure difficult conditions. Who in this oh lovely nation, land of the free, home of the brave was enduring difficult conditions? Was it those who discovered this fine land and decided "finders keepers, losers weepers" or was it those and still are those who were forced to leave, serve, or perish for lack of compliance. I'll let you answer that question. Valor is great courage in the face of danger, especially in battle. What's more courageous: snatching away the rights of those who were here before you, or standing up for the rights that were never yours to begin with in this land?
YAH said in Deuteronomy 28:65-66,
And among these nations shall you find no ease, neither shall the sole of your foot have rest: but Yahuah shall give you there a trembling heart, and failing of eyes, and sorrow of mind: And your life shall hang in doubt before you; and you shall fear day and night, and shall have none assurance of your life:
I'd say our people are faced with this danger everyday, yet our strength is what frightens our enemies the most.
White is representative of purity and innocence.
Purity is to be free from immorality. Innocence is the lack of guile or corruption. I'm sorry, I really don't mean to laugh at such a serious matter; but I'm really trying to understand where they got that one from! What is pure about the genocide and enslavement of a people? What is innocent about the mental, physical, social, spiritual, demographic, and economic attacks on our people? The whole institution screams immorality and corruption. Yet we receive angry stares and glares for not pledging to corruption. The joke writes itself.
Lastly, blue represents vigilance, perseverance, and justice. Vigilance is the action or state of keeping careful watch for possible danger or difficulties. I'd say that this is an accurate representation of the tribes' daily walk. Refer to Deuteronomy 28 once more. Perseverance is continued effort to do or achieve something despite difficulties, failure, or opposition. Justice is the quality of being righteous, equitable, or morally right. I'm really struggling with the fact that we exude the very essence of vigilance and perseverance, yet our captors use it as a symbol of their nationhood. How pathetic. I don't even think I need to address the inadequacies of this justice system...
"One nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all." This one nation has abused its power to ensure that we as a people remain divisible with no hope of liberty or justice. This promise of indivisibility, liberty, and justice was not intended for us.
All in all, it's very apparent to see the delusion of this nation and how they falsely attribute their symbols to that of a righteous nation. All of the symbols in this land serve as a reminder of the hardship, enslavement, bondage, captivity, injustice, inequity, and treachery that has taken place since we were dropped off in Jamestown over 400 years ago and well and before that.
Luckily for us, The Most High YAH made us a promise. We must not forget how we landed ourselves in captivity to begin with. Wickedness. Idolatry. Paganism. And other ghastly abominations. YAH is waiting on us. He is waiting on us to turn from our wickedness, repent for what we've done, and return back to Him. It's just that simple.
1 Kings 8:47-53 says,
Yet if they shall bethink themselves in the land whither they were carried captives, and repent, and make supplication unto you in the land of them that carried them captives, saying, We have sinned, and have done perversely, we have committed wickedness; And so return unto you with all their heart, and with all their soul, in the land of their enemies, which led them away captive, and pray unto you toward their land, which you gave unto their fathers, the city which you have chosen, and the house which I have built for your name: Then hear their prayer and their supplication in heaven your dwelling place, and maintain their cause, And forgive your people that have sinned against you, and all their transgressions wherein they have transgressed against you, and give them compassion before the who carried them captive, that they may have compassion on them: For they be your people, and your inheritance, which you brought forth out of Mitsrayim, from the midst of the furnace of iron:
That your eyes may be open unto the supplication of your servant, and unto the supplication of your people Yashar'el, to hearken unto them in all that they call for unto you. For you did separate them from among all the people of the earth, to be your inheritance, as you spoke by the hand of Mosheh your servant, when you brought our fathers out of Mitsrayim, O Adonai Yahuah.
The charge has been given to us. It's in our hands. The ball is in our court. We know what we must do as a nation, and what is needed to be freed from this bondage. To repent is our greatest strength.
