Kingdom Justice vs. Woke Social Justice
Kingdom Justice vs. Woke Social Justice.
(Make no mistake, one loves God and the other hates God.)
Growing up as a Hispanic kid in a lower-middle-class neighborhood, life was always a struggle. A manufactured struggle between the haves and the have-nots.
It was like playing monopoly, but by the time I started, all the money and land had already been handed out.
Most of our fathers worked in factories and hard labor. We were told we were victims of racist oppression. White oppression. (a BIG lie)
One day God put a revelation in my heart. "Poverty and God's Prosperity are ways of thinking. Both are a state of mind. And as a man thinketh, so is he."
I, like 70% of the American workforce, wanted to be self-employed. An entrepreneur.
So I started reading a lot of business books. I found the best book on business was the Bible. Inside were 6000 plus promises for me. All paid for by the blood of Jesus. I only needed faith to believe. The more I read, the more I believed.
And then at 23, with a few thousand dollars I had worked for and saved, I launched my first startup, a staffing company in Newport Beach, CA.
I struggled for a little while, and then God started filling my mind with business ideas and innovation. Though I was inexperienced, soon I was opening new locations throughout Southern California.
This was the Kingdom of God kind of justice.
Some of the biblical promises I stood on:
"The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance [to the full, till it overflows]." John 10:10 AMP
"Beloved, I pray that in every way you may succeed and prosper and be in good health [physically], just as [I know] your soul prospers [spiritually]." 3 John 2 AMP
"But you shall remember [with profound respect] the Lord your God, for it is He who is giving you power to make wealth, that He may confirm His covenant which He swore (solemnly promised) to your fathers, as it is this day." Deuteronomy 8:18 AMP
"God will lavish you with good things: children from your womb, offspring from your animals, and crops from your land, the land that God promised your ancestors that he would give you. God will throw open the doors of his sky vaults and pour rain on your land on schedule and bless the work you take in hand. You will lend to many nations but you yourself won’t have to take out a loan. God will make you the head, not the tail; you’ll always be the top dog, never the underdog, as you obediently listen to and diligently keep the commands of God, your God, that I am commanding you today. Don’t swerve an inch to the right or left from the words that I command you today by going off following and worshiping other gods." Deuteronomy 28:11-14 MSG
The Bible promises that what God has done for me, He will do for you.
That was 37 years ago. Today I'm a 6X serial entrepreneur. My life is full of truth and love, helping ordinary people just like me.
