In the book of Daniel chapter 4, we read about King Nebuchadnezzar and his imminent rise and fall.
In the latter passages, we see one of God's pure prophets issuing a warning to the Babylonian king, urging him to repent before calamity struck.
"Stop doing bad things and be kind to others," Daniel warned Nebuchadnezzar.
But the king would not listen. In fact, God had graced him with an additional 12 months to make things right before publicly shaming him for 7 years.
I first brought this passage to the Beloved audience in 2018 - 2019 regarding former President Trump. It was a stern warning to Conservatives and to Trump's camp: If Trump did not pivot and learn to humble himself, he would lose entirely.
The message nearly got me virtually stoned, for the people had itching ears for a positive "prophetic" word. And yet, there was nothing demeaning about the message.
Only a call to repentance and an urging to treat others rightly.
Recently, I find myself repeating this same message to leaders who have risen to heights in this conservative space. When information regarding their treatment of others hits me, I will issue a warning so the leaders can shift and repent.
Because God will always be concerned with how we treat the people entrusted to our care.
I preach spiritual laws for a reason.
One, God the Holy Spirit asked me to do this back in 2016. Since that time, He has elevated my platform to the highest heights. But even as I increased, I always made it a point to give credit to the One who brought me here.
For this reason, you will always see me speak of God the Holy Spirit.
Secondly, for those who come to my platform, whether to receive my training or to engage in our national work, I teach them to keep their hearts humble before God. I teach them to practice spiritual laws so they always work in their favor.
Of those laws is the Law of Sowing and Reaping, which is ALWAYS in effect.
This is the one law we never want working against us.
I give warnings for a purpose: because I genuinely care about the people and the leaders who reach these heights. I remind them that our elevation should never be used for selfish reasons.
We are here to serve. We are here to activate. We are here to prove God's ways work in the social, political, and economic spheres.
Yet, human wisdom continues to make us proud and arrogant. We forget God. We experience a surge of wealth and power, and somehow we think it was our own works that brought us here.
As such, God will always position a pure prophet to speak clearly the word of the Lord.
He will place such spiritual leaders right alongside governing rulers or kings to keep their eyes focused on God's ways and His mission.
But what can we do when our warnings are not heeded? What can we say when God tells us, "Stop praying for them."
Most people do not read the Ancient Text. Therefore, they have limited understanding of God and how He operates.
Not so here.
I readily bring stories, proverbs, and spiritual laws to the public forefront so folks realize God is still present. While the Scriptures teach, "God will do nothing in the earth without revealing it to His prophets firstly" (Amos 3), we are living in a time when God is ready to make Himself known intimately to each individual.
As such, one of my objectives is to teach Beloveds how to hear God for themselves.
Because God is always talking.
He reveals His plan directly to leaders, especially in dreams.
He gives stern warnings so we can pivot.
And He is always accurate.
So are His prophets.
Today's lesson is another warning to those looking to become leaders in the earth.
God will not hesitate to defend the oppressed. And He will not hesitate to handle matters when He sees His own leaders mistreating the people.
When He first warns, it is done privately and often. But when those warnings go unheeded, He will bring public punishment to such leaders.
This public punishment is not to be confused with persecution for righteousness sake.
For we know persecution produces power and multiplication. The evidence of that is always seen.
Rather, when public punishment is exacted, it's to realign matters so God's will is properly performed in the earth. It's to humble a leader and to remind him that God appoints kingdoms to whomever He sees fit, and He gives place to those who remain humble before Him.
For God, souls will always be on His mind. This is why He takes careful watch regarding leaders who mistreat people, who implement policies that oppress the people, or those who use their influence to cause others to sin.
God is always watching.
And it's a fearful thing to find yourself in the hands of an angry God.
At such point, the only solution for a scheduled curse is full repentance. Leaders who implement this strategy prior to the curse will find themselves in right-standing with God.
Leaders who reject ... it is as Daniel told the king.
Pastor Rod Parsley, a dynamic preacher in Columbus, Ohio, once stated: "When the people are rejoicing, the prophets are weeping. And when the people are weeping, the prophets are rejoicing."
The irony of such a statement is that God will always position His mouthpieces to establish order, which breeds prosperity. When the people and their leaders humble themselves because a message sobers them, the prophets rejoice because now the blessings can flow freely.
But when the blessings start clouding the people's good judgment, the prophets will mourn, and often yell, because pride is taking over their hearts and minds.
Moses spoke of this clearly when he told the people, "Do not forget the Lord when you come into the Promise Land. Remember it is God who gives you the power to get wealth so His covenant is established."
This is another stern warning, because people, especially leaders, have a tendency to feel themselves once they've reached certain heights. Suddenly, God's laws mean little to them unless they can exploit them for their own profit.
But God is always watching.
Today, if you will hear God's voice, do not harden your hearts or become dull of hearing. Take inventory of where your heart is and determine within yourself to always do right by others.
Even when people wrong you, there is a spiritual protocol that will help you receive justice. Present your case before God the Holy Spirit. Leave your case in His courtroom. Then allow the Law of Sowing and Reaping to do its work.
Never position yourself to exact vengeance on others.
I can guarantee: If a leader is causing damage to you, God has a prophet standing in his ear, warning him to do right before calamity strikes.
Let God handle vengeance while you walk away whole.
And to the leaders reading this post, always remember why you were called to such heights.
This glory is not for you.
If today's teaching blessed you, give towards our evangelism work in Atlanta, GA
The Felecia Killings Foundation and the Conscious Conservative Movement are excited to present our 2022 fundraiser, My Beloved Book Drive for families in Atlanta, GA.
Our Movement is committed to bringing an empowering, educational experience to men, women, and children in communities suffering from Progressivism’s destruction. By equipping the heart and mind of each person, we will help communities transform from the inside out.
At The Foundation, we believe wisdom and knowledge are key to bringing revival, reformation, and the renaissance to a community. When more people are educated in key principles that ensure our success, we will witness the greatest movement of God our nation has ever seen.
My Beloved Books is our newest empowering program that helps address current issues facing American citizens in predominantly Black communities. Our program’s mission is to distribute empowering books that focus on key conservative values. More specifically, our purpose is to:
In partnership with independent authors, The Foundation will distribute FREE books to communities in the metro Atlanta, GA area. These authors have written engaging texts that provide wisdom and insight regarding various issues. This work aligns with The Foundation's mission to be the premiere educational platform that delivers this training nationwide.
Atlanta, GA is just the beginning of our national work.
Our Movement believes this city is ripe to receive the Conscious Conservative message, because Black residents deserve discussions related to political competition as they focus on building better.
Atlanta, GA is best-known for being a modern Black Wall Street. But it is also known for high crime rates, poverty, and other social ills.
By presenting a better social, political, and economic offer to Black Americans of all levels, we will see conservatism gaining ground in these deep Blue areas.
Conservatism is much more than politics. It is a way of living that ensures our success in the social, political, and economic spheres.
Gifting books to families in the areas has been the easiest method to spark conversations about Conscious Conservatism and our work to bring political competition to Black residents.
Such efforts also dismantle racial barriers between Black voters and White Conservatives.
As you know, our Movement is focused on building an alliance so the Republican Party comes to reflect the core values we need, especially in the area of education and economics.
And while the GOP makes “promises” to do effective outreach in Black neighborhoods, not a single local party has discussed anything conservative to Black residents.
They are not serious about Black Outreach.
But we are.
We are committed to doing things a better way so we get better results. And we have developed the most effective Black Outreach initiative through our evangelism and book giveaways.
Book topics within our outreach efforts include:
Since piloting our first evangelism efforts in March 2022, we have witnessed an openness among Black residents to hear our message. We are planting the seed in 2022 so as 2024 rolls around, our Movement can make an aggressive effort to sell viable conservative candidates to those willing to entertain new options.
But the seed must first be sown.
And our book distribution and evangelism are the keys.
The Felecia Killings Foundation and the Conscious Conservative Movement are solely sponsored by Beloved Givers like you. Your $20 or more donation towards this cause sponsors one book per person.
For 2022, our goal is to distribute 30 different book titles while giving away 3,000+ books to families in Atlanta, GA.
To accomplish this goal, we must raise $2500 - $3000 per book title. And our campaign will be adjusted to reflect our need to raise money for all 30 CCM Evangelism events in 2022.
Funds for each book drive go towards:
Each book bag will contain 2-3 books PLUS a CCM brochure. In addition, every book bag will have a copy of Conscious Black Conservatism, which teaches Black voters our core philosophy and how they can flex politically this next round.
In 2022, we will hit 3,000+ households in Atlanta. These members will then become the core seed we empower offline so they can then share our empowering message with others.
Your contributions make this possible.
As a token of our appreciation for your generosity, The Foundation will send you copies of our newest releases in the Conscious Conservative E-Book Collection.
The Law of Sowing and Reaping is ALWAYS in effect.
This next round, we are determined to put action behind our teachings. We know the values work. Our online presence has reached millions. We recognize the fecklessness of the Republican Party.
So, we will show up!
As you give towards our cause, know your contributions are not in vain.
