Well, it’s too late now. Adam and Eve stamped their “Self-Will” into the world and gave up our privileges and authority to the adversary! It may be hard to understand, but, it’s true. They poured out their disobedience and rebellion into the entire world. That’s why the scriptures say, the whole world has an infectious disease by the adversary. “For the whole world lies under the sway (influence) of the adversary.” You can’t touch anything without the adversary having dipped his rebellious, jealous finger into the soup of the world. Okay, let’s go on now that I have gotten that off my chest. Last week, I left off answering my own question: “Where was God when Mr. Floyd’s life was being snuffed out?” I answered that by saying, “the 17-year-old who filmed it was “God’s angel.” You know God has His people in the right place at just the right time. I also shared my personal prophetic drawing from my personally drawn art collection in 1992. Oh. The little round circles are the coronavirus germs disease! The name of my piece of artwork is entitled: “Suddenly and Without Remedy!” This piece of artwork, which hopefully will be placed with this article is called: “The Cameraman.” Study it. You will see there is a little girl at the bottom. That’s the 17-year-old who was taking the picture. The piece is called “The Cameraman,” who is God. He sees everything at all times, being omnipresent and omniscient. In the upper left you see an image of a brown man flaying his arms, his face is pinkish colored. That’s Mr. Floyd and the others are all over him. This is my interpretation of my prophetic piece of art: “The Cameraman.” Let’s move on. Who are the four men involved with the “murder” of Mr. Floyd. The “adversary” is looking straight on into the camera. The adversary is bold, self-willed expecting to escape visibility and punishment as all times before. BUT, this time, the cameraman catches and captures him, takes his picture, seals his identity and incarcerates him! Game over for him. What about the other three immediate onlookers? Who are they? They are the world that has been watching these injustices all along and didn’t make any reforms to the systematic-systemic racism. One tried to halt it, but his voice was ignored. That’s the age-old status. People who can do something about the problem have failed to do so, thinking the status quo will remain unchanged. Their actions have been too weak. And the problem cannot actually be blamed on any one person/s or politician. The contributors are not countable! Let us not forget this systemic racism has been alive, living among us for centuries. You may be appalled to learn about the vast land around and near Minneapolis which is covenanted for the use of “white people” only.

The Cameraman (Grattan) 1992

Please understand, I have no prejudices against any specific people of any race or nationality or tribe. Timing has elevated systemic racism and its synicism to boiling! There are some who may not understand how the rules are gripped into the bloodstream of our nation and the edicts, laws and regulations are set that detangling takes great doing. Let’s take education. There is a stronghold grip on education starting at the lowest levels ages through college and careers. There is a systematic strong-fisted effort in place to prevent our children (Black and Brown) from receiving the best education available and deny parents a better choice. I have gotten a bit carried away with the passion I have for education. Okay. I will pick up on this next time and hope my prophetic artwork, “The Cameraman” will be published this time too. I have some very interesting information to share with you on this same subject of “The Exaltation of Self-Will.”
