In response to the current happenings in USA – the black lives matter movement. I did not have a chance to take part last week. I actually started writing this article last week, but never had the chance to publish it. I thought it was over with the blackout demonstration, but it was only the beginning, we should continue to push forward until we see the change we want to see. With that said, I wanted to continue with my plan to publish this, and possibly divide it into a three-part series. The first, will provide a brief introduction and establish the context in which our discussion will lay, the second will provide the link to Africa and the possibility of never truly being free of slavery if we do not involve God, and finally the possible way forward and the conclusion.
In history there is a very fascinating record, of how our God rescued his nation Israel from 440 years of slavery by the Egyptian nation. The wonder of this record demonstrates how God used ten plagues to bring devastation on the nation of Egypt, after Pharaoh refused to let his people go. However, in all the nine Pharaoh remained steadfast. It was only with the last plague – the killing of firstborns did Pharaoh budge. But why, what was the significance of firstborns. Was God so harsh to go through such measures? We will find out.
The pseudo dimensions of these theories
Before we dive in, we need to understand a few theories and establish the looking glass of our discussion. Although Egyptians are considered to be Africans, in world history they were recorded and perceived to be white (Chang’ach 2015:1). In postcolonial theory were can conclude that it was part of the western agenda to diminish Africa and more specifically black Africans. However, we should ask the questions whether Ancient Egypt was for or against the concept of them being referred to as black. Could it be that inherently they perceived themselves as white, which later enhanced the agenda of the west to depict them as part of them? Or were they part of the demonic elite, and it did not matter whether they were black or white, as race at that time was not yet the facet used to hide the demonic agenda of world domination. Or was Egypt coerced through epistemic violence mainly by the burning of records and the establishment of dominator paradigms?
The multifaceted dimensions of oppression
Oppression in itself, and this can be any type of oppression, has both a physical and spiritual aspect. The physical can be further divided into a mental (psychological) and emotional aspect.
Therefore, when we look at the Pharoahs is not Africans, but demons that oppressed the people.
People humans or (black people in this context) – God’s people.
Therefore, in this context, we should view African Americans as God’s people.
Pharaoh/ The Egyptians – White Police and the government/laws that supports them – Demons
