8 And once more he bent down and wrote on the ground. 9 But when they heard it, they went away one by one, beginning with the older ones, and Jesus was left alone with the woman standing before him.
John 8: 8-9
John 8: 8-9
"There is a divided land in your midst, would say the Lord. I AM drawing a line in the sand. There is a line being drawn in the land between many different factions.
There is hatred. There is prejudice; and there is the worst kind of hatred, even among my own. I have called you to love all kind of men and women. It doesn't matter what the color of their skin, or even of their background. For all of them are living human beings.
It doesn't matter if you are rich or poor. It doesn't matter if you are black or white, or red or brown. I tell you that once an entire nation tried to form a perfect race. Millions of my own people, the Jews, were exterminated. There is so much hatred, and there is so much discrimination.
The land will be filled-up. Your forerunner will lose ground at the appointed time. There will be more bloodshed. There will be fighting in the street---even upon the steps of the White House, for your nation is going to be turned upside down.
Where is the one they would follow? You stand upon a precipice. "
