Brondon Mathis – A Minister of Reconciliation – 2 Cor. 5:14-17 – Reconciliation to the Man and the Land
In Israel I received this word from the Lord saying, “Just as you prepared 15 interns during a 6 month Internship, to come to my Holy City, that’s how near my return is, and this is how my bride must be prepared for my return to this region. Begin preparing my bride for my return over the next 6 mos, 6 years or 60 years, by connecting her to My land, Jerusalem. I heard these words, “I’m coming back to Jerusalem and the way my bride will prepare for my return is to reconnect to the land I’m coming back to.”
HE revealed to me, “You can’t get a full revelation of the Man without the Land. Without the land, which proves and testifies that He was here in the earth, you have a myth. Without the revelation of the land you have a power shortage. The power of the Holy Spirit is tied to a Man AND the Land.
Acts 1:8 But ye shall receive POWER, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto ME (The Man Christ Jesus) both in JERUSALEM (The Land), and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
The man is Jesus, Yeshua the Messiah, and the land where His kingdom will be headquartered is Jerusalem.
The land is Jerusalem, as well as the land to which you are from (the uttermost parts of the earth). It’s first JERUSALEM and then the land you are from. It’s first Jerusalem because that’s where he’s coming back to. And then where you’re from (the uttermost parts of the earth) because that’s where you’re coming back to. God marries us to a land as a part of our identity.
Reconciliation to one Another
The Table of Brotherhood
With the current racial divide widening in America with every racial incident our nation is in need of healing and true reconciliation. In a section from Martin Luther King Jr’s “I have a Dream” speech we can find a vital key necessary to make this a reality – Sitting down at the Table of Brotherhood. In this section of the speech we can see the canvas of the racial backdrop of the two distinct histories in America of those of African descent and those of European descent.
This canvas shows us the lens through which each people groups’ vision of life in America was formed and focused, and why we see the way we see and think the way we think on each side of the racial divide. This vital key helps in understanding one another to be able to work through differences across each side of the divide.
The section of King’s epic speech that reveals these two separate lenses begins by saying: “I have a dream that one day on the red hills of Georgia, the sons of former slaves and the sons of former slave owners will be able to sit together at the TABLE OF BROTHERHOOD – Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. On this site, we endeavor to establish a safe place to dialogue around the issues of race, racism and reconciliation at “The table of Brotherhood.” From the book with the same title, the two view points and perspectives are investigated on each side of the racial divide, to encourage and inform all races and people groups on how to reach for the dream of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. to sit down at the table of brotherhood to discuss our differences, the racial disparities and injustices, and how to achieve racial reconciliation, as well as how we can work together to let justice roll down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream.
