2. And He has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth and has determined their preappointed times and the boundaries of their dwellings (Acts 17:26).
3. And if you are Christ's, then you are Abraham's seed, and heirs according to the promise (Gal. 3:29).

Christian soldiers in the Anglo-African Diaspora, by virtue of their providential HisStory and torturous journey through 3,000 years of history, are endowed with peculiar responsibilities, the most prominent of which, in addition to the security of their souls, the preservation of their testimonies and the love of others as themselves, is, beginning here in America, to globally and fruitfully proclaim the Good News for a season.

A principal portion of the HisStory of the Diaspora, by definition perceived as through a glass darkly, began at the dawn of the 16th century. Interrelated elements, from the revolution ignited when Martin Luther posted his Ninety Five Theses in 1607 until the miraculous victory of the feeble navy of Elizabeth I over the fearsome warships of Philip II of Spain in 1688, along with periodic tragedies and atrocities in the interval and afterwards, have tinged the fabric of the Diaspora in ways discernible until this day.

A Portuguese slave ship, The San Juan Bautista (St. John the Baptist, aka, the Black Mayflower) as one example, sailed from an Angolan port with over 200 enchained Africans packed like sardines in its belly in 1619. The ship was attacked and robbed of its human cargo in the Gulf of Mexico by two pirate ships, one Dutch and the other English; the pirates took 20 or so of the Angolans to the 12 year old Jamestown and traded them for food and supplies, thereby facilitating the birth of slavery in America. One result of this tragedy for the Angolans is the reference to the "Good Ole Ship of Zion" in American slavery lore.

Are the fields, Christian Americans of the Diaspora, not whiter for harvest than at any time in our history? Who then, if not us, will petition our God to heal our land? Did He not ordain us for these times?
This without controversy is our season!

To arms Christians! To Arms! Amen.
