If I had the opportunity to talk to Dr. King, I would ask him these questions...
From the mountaintop what does the promise land look like?
As a Moses-type leader of a people, what were the INSTRUCTIONS that were given to you by God to give to us as a people when we entered into the land of promise?
As a Moses-type leader of a people who would not enter into the promised land, who did God give you to lay hands on that he may continue the work after your work was done?
As a prophet of God, why do you think that we as a people have forsaken the God who delivered us from our oppressors?
What do you think of the Afro-American Church today?
I think that his answers would be as such...
From the mountaintop, the land is flowing with milk and honey. Opportunities are everywhere, if we would only open our eyes. God's blessings are flowing and His provision is available.
As a Moses-type leader of this people, the INSTRUCTIONS that were to be given to me and which I tried to teach to the people were to "live righteously". Let RIGHTEOUSNESS guide you in all that you do. God gave Moses the ten commandments and He gave me the ministry of righteousness and that is what I lived and was called to die for.
As a Moses-type leader, I laid my hands on Jesse. Rev. Jackson was the one chosen to lead the people after my work was complete. He tried. But it should not have stopped with him.
As a prophet of God, I believe that the Afro-American people have forsaken their God, their deliverer because there has not been another leader to take a strong stand for 'righteousness'. Therefore, they have gone their own way and followed their own thoughts. We are a type of Israel, but it's not too late. Many died in the wilderness of the past by doing their own thing and many are dieing even today for the same reason.
And to the Afro-American church, I would simply say as Paul said, "be ye not conformed to this world", "preach the word", and take a stand for righteousness' sake. Let not my work be done in vain. OVERCOME!
