God gave us a window of opportunity in which to address our sins in this nation to avoid national judgment. In the past 4 years, we addressed abortion, family values, our relationship with Israel and a few other issues that are essential to upholding God's standards in our nation. However, we not only failed to address the sin of racism, but we actually became more polarized, divided and intolerant in our nation and within the Body of Believers.
To address sins that remain under the surface, our God allows them to be exposed. Over the past 12 years, we have seen division and racism bubble up to the surface of our lives, affecting our social interactions and political choices. However, we failed to see that God was revealing an issue that must receive national attention or it can destroy this nation. We missed a unique opportunity to address racism in America during a season of great grace. Now, we must address it in a season of high tensions and under great pressure.
The Lord has already given us clear instructions. The Declaration of Kingdom Standards for the United States of America addresses the issue of Race and Social Equality as 1 of 7 essential issues in our nation. On page 18, instructions are given to truly address this sin that is destroying our nation. "There must be a national acknowledgement of this hypocrisy, repentance for breaking God’s standards, policies of restitution created, and reparations for centuries of damage that has been done and is still being done to restore God’s blessings on our nation as a whole. This will provide validity to those who feel their pain is unseen, repair to relationships that have been broken and opportunities for forgiveness and healing. However, Kingdom citizens who have been the victims of racism are being called by God to extend forgiveness and a release of debt within this nation, which will heal the soul of our nation and bring individual souls into the Kingdom of God. This Kingdom requirement of forgiveness and release from debt remains whether or not apologies, restitution and reparations are given. May the healing of this nation begin with each one of us!"
The Declaration calls for national justice acts. However, any lasting national effort always begins with the citizens of the nation. Let us begin by coming before God, then coming together for healing. Watch the Healing Service on 2/15/21 below for more in-depth revelation of the seriousness and urgency of addressing racism in our nation.

God will fulfill His will for each of His people and for our nation, but we must first receive deliverance. Allow God to deliver you from racism and many other forms of demonic oppression and influence by offering spiritual burnt offerings to Him.
Through intentional prayer and time with the Lord, the Holy Spirit gave Jazmyn Nichols a strategy to more deeply engage in the process of forgiveness and healing. In this book, she shares the strategy given to her. This strategy will help you take inventory of the offenses and transgressions done against you, then empower you to heal and forgive!
We must declare PEACE in our nation. To do so, we must come together to have some tough conversations in a safe environment.
