Boys of Sudan

Daniel 12:10 Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.

.Cop shooting
.What’s the mystery?
.Dylan Roof- Tim McVeigh- we know the motive
.Why not apply the same standard?
.Did we watch a vampire movie at Church Unlimited?
.Boko Haram
.Nice- France
.Pop’s Black Olympic doctor
.Yes- Sherriff Clark is Uncle Tom!! [No joke]

On today’s video I talk about the movie we saw at Church Unlimited this past Sunday.
It was the story of some Black kids that came to the U.S. as a result of the displacement of many Sudanese children during Sudan’s civil war.
I get more in depth than the movie and cover the history of Sudan.
In short- Sudan is an African nation that was divided between north and South.
In the North you have Muslims and in the south- Christians.
Sudan was liberated from British colonial rule in the 1950’s and formed their own independent government.
Over time the people rose up to fight the government and they formed the Sudanese people’s liberation army.
Their civil war [the 2nd one] lasted from around 1983-2005.
The army was brutal and forced many of the boys to fight.
These kids were orphaned- many of their parents were killed- and others they don’t know what happened to them.
Southern Sudan eventually gained freedom from the Muslim north- and between 2011-13 many of the ‘lost boys’ fled to other African nations [Kenya- Ethiopia].
These journeys took weeks- months- and some traveled over a thousand miles on foot.
The kids formed little groups- and were often lead by the oldest boy of the group- sometimes as young as 12 years old.
These boys would eventually get special immigration status and the first group of about 3800 would come to the U.S.
These kids suffered from what we call ‘Ambiguous loss’ meaning they did not have the ‘benefit’ of knowing exactly what happened to their parents and other family members.
Even if their parents were killed- if they knew it- they would be able to go thru the grieving process and move on in life.
But because many of them still don’t know if their families are alive or dead- they suffer from this sort of ‘In between’ feeling.
Eventually over 7 thousand Sudanese would settle in Omaha Nebraska.
We estimate about 2.5 million people were killed during the civil war- and millions displaced.
Most of these boys came from the Nuer and Dinka ethnic groups.

CORRECTION- On the video I posted the other day- I said the bombing was Paris- it was actually Nice [In church history a famous council was held here- but I posted the video quick- so made the mistake].
[new notes below on Samuel 9- and the cop killing in Baton Rouge]

NEW STUFF- as I write [7-18-16] this is the day after the Cop killing in Baton Rouge. I mention it on today’s video [cop killing] and have been talking/posting about it since yesterday.
I was celebrating my birthday- born on 7-17-62- as I watched the news.
The shooter was a Marine- born on 7-17-87.
He did the killings on his birthday.
MSNBC news was initially reporting it was a possible act of conservative White Christians- sort of like a Tim McVeigh type thing.
I was puzzled because he killed 3 cops in Baton Rouge- where just last week video surfaced of cops killing a Black man.
And a few days earlier another black veteran killed 5 Dallas cops.
It seemed to be a reaction to the viral videos of Blacks being shot by cops.
But- as I watched MSNBC they spoke of the shooter being aligned with White Christian conservative type groups- and yet- he shot cops In Baton Rouge.
So- obviously I figured the shooter was White- because of their narrative.
Then they revealed the name of the shooter- but not his race.
Ok- guess he must be White.
They continued with a narrative that said this was not the result of a Black man who might be mad at White cops- but more than likely he was an anti-Government conservative [Christian] who was against the police- sort of like a KKK member.
Then of course the other media outlets came out and said he was Black- that he posted about being upset about people being abused by the system [cops] and he made the statement ‘this is how we deal with bullies’.
Obviously effected by the video- of a cop who shot into the car and killed a Black man- when there was a 4 year old Black girl in the back seat.
So- the entire spin MSNBC was trying to sell [I guess they were hoping no one would ever find out it was a Black man] was not concerned with reporting- but they even used the tragedy of 3 cops being shot- for their own political agenda.
Ok- on SAMUEL 9-
Saul goes looking for his dads lost donkeys- and after a few days- he tells his servant ‘let’s go back- we will never find my dad’s donkeys- and he will start to worry about us’.
But first they decide to seek the advice of a ‘famous’ prophet who lives in the area.
His name is Samuel.
As they go to the town where he might be- the girls say ‘yeah- he’s coming today because they have a special religious ceremony going on’.
I wonder why?
Saul and his servant find Samuel- and they ask his advice.
Now Samuel has been preparing this special meal- but only those invited can come.
The city was kind of excited ‘wow- wonder what this is all about’?
Samuel invites Saul and his servant- everything is ready.
And when Saul shows up- Samuel has him sit in the top chair.
Yes- God already showed Samuel that Saul was to be Israel’s first king.
The whole party was for him- and he didn’t even know it!
Samuel tells Saul ‘get your mind off the donkeys- they are found’.
And he gives him the special food that was being prepared all night.
He tells Saul ‘eat what is left’.
At the end of the chapter Samuel tells Saul ‘let the servant go on- but you stay here- I will show you what’s in your heart’.
In the next chapter we will read of his calling- how God is choosing Saul to be the king.
But Samuel said ‘I will show you what’s in your heart’.
God called him- like us- before we were born- to fulfill a mission in life.
See- It’s already in our heart- even if we don’t know it.
In time God will bring you to the place of it being fulfilled.
Maybe you think the mission is about finding the 3 lost donkeys- but that was just part of the journey- to get you to the prophet [God’s word].
After you find the true calling- you need to get your ‘mind off the donkeys’ because it will hinder you from moving ahead with the true vision.
And when the meal is set before you ‘eat what’s left’.
The bible talks about sons being born ‘after the flood’ [Noah].
Often times God will bring you on the journey- and there might even be a flood.
You might come out on the other side- with just a few of you left [remnant] but go with ‘what’s left’.
Make the best of it- Isaiah said ‘more are the children of the desolate- then the married wife’.
Yes- in God’s kingdom- Floods- donkeys- they might be part of the journey- but when you get to ‘what’s left’- then enjoy the meal [the true destiny].
These are the things that are precious.

Daniel 12:1 And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great prince which standeth for the children of thy people and there shall be a time of trouble, such as never was since there was a nation even to that same time and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.
Daniel 12:2 And many of them that sleep in the dust of the earth shall awake, some to everlasting life, and some to shame and everlasting contempt.
Daniel 12:3 And they that be wise shall shine as the brightness of the firmament; and they that turn many to righteousness as the stars for ever and ever.
Daniel 12:4 But thou, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.
Daniel 12:5 Then I Daniel looked, and, behold, there stood other two, the one on this side of the bank of the river, and the other on that side of the bank of the river.
Daniel 12:6 And one said to the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, How long shall it be to the end of these wonders?
Daniel 12:7 And I heard the man clothed in linen, which was upon the waters of the river, when he held up his right hand and his left hand unto heaven, and sware by him that liveth for ever that it shall be for a time, times, and an half; and when he shall have accomplished to scatter the power of the holy people, all these things shall be finished.
Daniel 12:8 And I heard, but I understood not then said I, O my Lord, what shall be the end of these things?
Daniel 12:9 And he said, Go thy way, Daniel for the words are closed up and sealed till the time of the end.
Daniel 12:10 Many shall be purified, and made white, and tried; but the wicked shall do wickedly and none of the wicked shall understand; but the wise shall understand.
Daniel 12:11 And from the time that the daily sacrifice shall be taken away, and the abomination that maketh desolate set up, there shall be a thousand two hundred and ninety days.
Daniel 12:12 Blessed is he that waiteth, and cometh to the thousand three hundred and five and thirty days.
Daniel 12:13 But go thou thy way till the end be for thou shalt rest, and stand in thy lot at the end of the days.



Note- Please do me a favor, those who read/like the posts- re-post them on other sites as well as the site you read them on. I deal with issues at times that it would be beneficial for some of you to download and save the file from the Word Press link. This creates a permanent record. The on-line videos are only good if sites are not hacked- which has happened in the past. Thanks- John.#
