Apostle Woods continues to explain that “there are not many at all sitting in these office with the Kingdom of God dwelling on the inside of them, and that is why you can see one women go to jail for stealing a snickers bar for 10 years, and a white-women steals a snickers bar and she doesn’t even go to jail, or, she probably goes to jail one night, pays the dollar for the snickers bar, and they tell her to not do that anymore, you know better than that. Then all the factors come into play, because my white skinned colored people rule everything on this land, then they get to decide, because they are in charge. However, the mother of this child who is before this unjust judge, who does not have the Kingdom of God within, her prayers can cause the Kingdom to come into the room, take that the unjust Judge heart, and fool himself, and cause him to walk away, saying oh my goodness, why did I do that, but it is done.
God heard the prayers of that mother because the righteous rule by prayer, and we must understand that, the righteous rule by prayer, the effectual, fervent prayers of a righteous man avails (James 5:16). That is how we go into the enemy’s camp and the gates of hell shall not prevail against us, we kick down the gates of hell and snatch our son out, we kick down the gates of hell and snatch our daughter out.Tthis Is not our home, we are from another place, and our Father created this place, and those that rule, rule by His mercy. Those that do rule, only rule by His Mercy, even though they are in the world. Satan is the god of this world, and we must not ever forget that, because when we forget that, we don’t manifest faith, and when we don’t manifest faith, we lose our edge, because God has said that without faith it is impossible to please God. The just shall live by faith.
God is the ultimate, even though this man is sitting there, even though this is what the doctor said, even though this is what came in the mail, or this is what the attorney said, that is not the last say, because my God, my Father; He sits high and looks low, and He can impact anything, for with Him, nothing is impossible, but if I don’t use my Faith, I lose my connection, but if I keep the faith, I live under an open Heaven. If I lose my faith, then the darkness rules over me. We can’t get the rule of righteousness and justice back. we won’t get it back, it is now up to the conviction of the individual person who is in that office, who’s at that place, even the supervisor on your job, he or she must have internal conviction as to how they are going to operate in that position, and that is what it comes down too”.
The issue is not only race but it a cultural issue as well. How others are treated are seemingly based on preconceived notions about one’s culture. How do we move past cultural diversities and institute a view of the world that is from God's viewpoint and not individualized cultural viewpoint? His consistent comment was, “God is love, that’s how! White, black, Hispanic, Asian, it does not matter. God is moved by His Love. His love takes advantage of every situation, that’s why people who should die, or those we think should die don’t, or should die because we think they are evil, God say’s oh, I Love them, or this person has gone to far, God says oh, but I love them, or this person has said too much, God says, Oh, I love them. And so, He was willing to give His own son, and as a matter of fact, God became man so that man could become God. He gave the ultimate sacrifice which was Himself, He spoke himself into existence, wrapped it up in the flesh of a virgin girl, and allowed himself to be trapped for thirty three and a half years, so you and I, not only could be redeemed, but we had an example”.
