“NATION BUILDING WITHOUT VIOLENCE”

(50 Avouching Expressions)

PART I

The effect of accumulative crises and turning points have delivered immeasurable imprints along my life’s journey.  These unforeseeable developments have contested my commitment, tried my endurance, and questioned my faith.  A personal or intimate set of vows have kept me bent on solving problems that would forge societal change and should elevate harmonious coexistence among all classes of humanity.  In order to arrive at such a state, I have had to undergo rigorous trials.

The thought of having lived multiple decades and not having contributed directly and significantly to the positive empowerment on behalf of the imperfect people and the impoverished people, who have suffered disproportionately oppression and injustice, would prove excruciatingly painful to my soul and wrenchingly sorrowful to my spirit.  Of all the experiences that have impacted my life, I would deem responsible stewardship of my total living as having commanded the most scrutinizing personal examination.  I have recognized that I owe a debt to improve the quality of life for the imperfect people, the impoverished people, and their progeny.  The Grace of God has granted me variant levels of expiation and opportunities of redemption.  My inner convictions would resound with gut twisting lamentation, if the conditions have worsen at my demise beyond the conditions that existed at my birth.

Conversation without action steps will only depict the cannon fodder of inactivity.  Nation Building is a solution that needs clarity for the oppressor, but more so for those who would be the beneficiaries of the citizenry in such a grand endeavor.  Even those of religious persuasion must have a fresh theological revelation, these religious zealots must have a clearer grasp of the advancement of God’s kingdom and the Father’s doctrine of Nation Building.

I will begin the path of enlightenment with the following statements:  NATION BUILDING WITHOUT VIOLENCE (50 Avouching Expressions).

  1. Nation Building can only consummate attainment objectives through a people of faith, who have committed themselves to the advent of a Theocratic Interdependent Peaceful Society.
  2. After two decades (plus) of wrestling with ideology, sociology, terminology, and theology, a Divine afflatus has crystallized in my spirit. The Divinely imparted vision has fused within the inner sanctum of my spirit an undeniable passion for souls and a prophetic strategy to enact Biblical justice.  Unpretentiously stated, I have become fully persuaded of a Divine commission to lead a people, who were not a people, on a nonviolent and nonthreatening (physically) peaceful trek to full naturally and spiritually recognized nationhood status.
  3. Conventional wisdom has invigorated microscopic scrutiny toward any potential threat to the status quo. On the other hand, myopic intensity has been geared toward Nation Building due to the absence of historical similarities or contemporary studies.  Antiquity and coeval erudition that has been viewed through the foregone conclusion of sustaining the present system will never arrive at what has been declared by Divine revelation.  The systemic search for facts will not reveal a standard of forgiveness that has forged a true aim at establishing a society of equality – one that construes a classless society and eschews a past-less society in order for all individuals to pursue a positive course in life.
  4. Change cannot always await a perfect endearment or a wise retrospective analysis. This helps to explain and constitute why so few will pursue leadership roles that clash with the current governing system.  Nation Building will shine with brilliance as a beckoning light atop a hill, illuminating the passageway for the courageous and strengthening the determination of the faith pilgrim.
  5. To people making history – history is now. To people determined to make history – insurmountable hurdles do not exist.  To people destined to make history – victory is incessantly in view.  To people exercising faith – Nation Building is history made evident.
  6. Recruitment of the human spirit will consistently refute any prerequisite registration as a democrat or a republican, a liberal or a conservative, a progressive faith practioner or an ultra- orthodox disciplinarian; however, the unlocking of a passion for Nation Building or nationhood status will unleash a power that no contrariety will be able to quench until the objective has been fully satisfied.
  7. Nation Builders are willing to go the distance to make a difference (nationhood) through education, evangelism, and enactment.
  8. At the mere mention of Nation Building, nationhood will most often strike apprehension in the hearts of the people who most need the benefits that would come into existence through a new nation. Unfounded fears have resonated from the misinformation that Nation Building can only occur by economic suppression, military aggression, or a forceful regime change.  Nation Building, resulting from a walk of faith, shall present a peaceful nascence without so much as the threat of a single shot being fired. God Almighty has retained the sovereignty to raise up a nation in a day or all at once.
  9. When the source that has demanded a new direction evolves from truth, a new directive or a continuum expansion should not unnerve the prevalent power structure or the multitudes locked into the system.
  10. Nation Builders should anticipate obstacles whenever the subject matter has focused on Nation Building. A concise definition of a nation states, “a stable constituency that sustains a social existence, which has been historically developed within a specified territory that maintains an economic life, distinctive culture, and a language in common.” A nation by definition has no connection what the destruction of what already exists.  Nation Building will gather the fragmented people, the imperfect people, and the impoverished people into a unified effort to create a collective strength that will be resistant to disadvantageous influences.

PART II

Noteworthy at this point, nothing has been contained in the aforementioned definition of a nation would even remotely suggest an act of violence or the military overthrow of another established society.  The notable absence of violence should deserve chronicle recognition.  Neither military aggression, nor social turbulence should represent a prerequisite for nationhood; especially, a nation that would ascend to form a Theocratic Interdependent Peaceful Society (T.I.P.S).

  1. Most often, a new vision will surface in the midst of an unlikely scenario. Healing will emerge from pain. Freedom will arise from imprisonment.  The human intellect cannot decipher path of Divine initiatives.  “But as it is written: ‘What eye did not see and ear did not hear, and what never entered the human mind – God prepared this for those who love Him.’” [I Corinthians 2:9 HCSB]
  2. Transparency does not automatically remove complexity just as desire does not preclude struggle. The mature disciples have recognized that faith without works is dead.
  3. Nation Building shall proffer an exertion that will be hard to comprehend even for the political astute and even more difficult to visualize for the individual struggling with daily survival; nevertheless, Nation Building will represent the viable solution for the imperfect people and the impoverished people.
  4. The concept of Nation Building will make absolutely no sense to the many people who have become entrenched in a prolific and functional governance. The elite (well-heeled) and gatekeepers (designated leaders) will reject any idea that shall restructure the societal order to include the imperfect people (the ostracized) and the impoverished people (the penurious). The fact that a workable strategy (Nation Building) has been devised will not extemporaneously attract trust.  In fact, the very thought of such an initiative may even infuriate segments of the population.  A systemic explanation cannot offer a guarantee that the message may find comprehension, complimentary review, or moral reception.  “But these words appeared to them as nonsense, and they would not believe them.” [Luke 24:11 NASB]  The facts that were recorded by Luke two millenniums ago, ignored by his contemporaries, have find truth in today’s world.
  5. Nation Building will present the pathway for the imperfect people and the impoverished people to regain dignity in a classless and a past-less society.
  6. A nation must engender a cosmic volume of opportunities for a prodigious number of people. The collectiveness of resources should produce outlets of commendatory consummation. As individuals excel, a nation should gain momentum; while the exact scene should operate in the reversal of roles.  “Righteousness exalts a nation, But sin is a disgrace to any people.” [Proverbs 14:34 NASB] A nation should protect its citizens, while establishing an environment of stability and growth.
  7. Nationhood can succeed outside the constraints of institutions and their practices by enlarging the tent of maneuverability to include the imperfect people and the impoverished people in unity with the justice seekers, the progressive individuals, and the skilled laborers.
  8. Nation Building shall transcend the cultures, dogmas, and other established norms of the dominant society, enlisting more than an exercise in liberal conscience appeasement toward the imperfect people and the impoverished people.
  9. A succinct combination of existential factors inclusive of Biblical justice will render Nation Building a practical endeavor.
  10. Nation Building will often contrast with the existing governing system. Conflicts and differences should not compel diverse political positions to assume confrontational and adversarial tones. When clashes (political and social agendas) have become inevitable, violence should never be considered or entertained as an option. Nation Builders must take on the leadership mantle by performing as skilled negotiators who seek a means (prayer) to resolve issues through Biblical mandates.  The foundational principles (core values) of Nation Building should never encounter a situation of compromise.

PART III

Negotiations should always be entered from a position of strength.  Resolution should never come at the expense of the core value in the purpose while pursuing to resolve an issue.  The Biblical justice principle should never come up for negotiation.  The resolution will come when the contrary practices are brought into alignment with Biblical mandates.  Nation Building shall present the practical application of the Word of God without regard to trends or external conditions.

  1. Nation Building will command a success model that shall reflect an inclusive sharing of resources where everyone benefits; thus, enriching the group and eliminating symmetrical acts of oppression. Nation Building shall present a paragon that will refuse to assimilate or replicate the oppressor’s tactics or ways.
  2. Coveted loyalty must exemplify a character that can depict faith as essential, display fealty through commitment, and practice a stern belief in the Doctrine of Nation Building.
  3. Nation Building will not present a threat to the coeval governing apparatus, nor shall it create a catalyst of rebellion. None of the statements that have been spelled out in the Doctrine of Nation Building have formed coded messages which may be misconstrued as complicit with any potential terror activities or recruitment initiatives. Paranoia should not serve as a conduit to focus negative attention on a concept as a possible sponsor or suspect of terror.  Nation Building will portray a citizenry that will identify as Ambassadors for Christ, not posing as creators of peril or jihadist intent.  Nation Building has no intention of physically replacing the existing system; however, it shall seek the opportunity to make the quality of life better for a vast number of people without a hidden agenda.
  4. The only prerequisite to Nation Building: a person must exercise faith as a born-again Believer in Jesus Christ.
  5. Nation Building will offer a paradigm shift; whereby, a new nation can arise within the acknowledged geographical boundaries of an existing nation. The aforementioned action can occur without a coup will baffle the natural mindset. The freshness of the concept shall represent a light thing for the Lord to perform.  All the nations are like a drop in the bucket to Him who has made all things.  He has retained the power to create new things at His will and pleasure.
  6. Nation Builders have read the first line of the Declaration of Independence, “When in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bonds which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the Separation.” Nation Builders have now chosen to put into application the words from a Higher Authority than the Declaration of Independence, “Therefore, come out from their midst and be separate,” says the Lord. [2 Corinthians 6:9a NASB]
  7. Nation Building has the aim to instill excellence in the consumerism practices of the imperfect people and the impoverished people, which can literally change the way institutions conduct commerce with the citizenry that nay claim nationhood status.
  8. Nation Building is a march to collective excellence and cooperative brilliance.
  9. Nation Building’s value will excel the appraised worth assigned land ownership. Nation Building has rejected the dependency upon a title deed to confer nationhood status. God alone can set the boundaries of the nations, “and He made from one man every nation of mankind to live on all the face of the earth, having determined their appointed times and the boundaries of their habitation.” [Acts 17:26 NASB]
  10. Nation Building will not arise as a result of might or power, only by the Holy Spirit.

PART IV

The Father has not relinquished His power to create new things.  He has not abandoned any of His promises.  What the Father has spoken in times pass, He has the ability to perform in today’s world.  Because men have failed to recognize His omnipotence does not mean for one moment that the Father has ceased to be all that He has always been.

  1. Nation Building should not be confused as a fad, but must have full recognition as a revelation. This initiative shall illuminate a passageway for the imperfect people and the impoverished people to tread in order to obtain self-reliance, triumph over collateral sanctions, and liberation from the residuum that has been emitted by symmetrical acts of oppression.
  2. Nation Building will honor God with the enactment of covenant living.
  3. A nonviolent lifestyle can reverse any trend that may siphon individuals into a stream of malicious behavior.
  4. Nation Building can only mature (grow to full fruition) in a soil that has been cultivated to produce a harvest devoid of narcissism.
  5. Nation Building shall reveal an endeavor only accessible through the embracing by faith.
  6. The people, who most need to egress this world system, will almost always resist sudden change. They will abide in the status quo most often as result of intimidation by the ruling powers or their own fear of the unknown. These individuals will appear on the surface to have the least to lose by accepting citizenry in a new nation; nevertheless, they will hold onto their lowly estate with the tightest possible grip.  Fear will paralyze and these individuals will hold onto a doleful disorder entanglement.  The imperfect people and the impoverished people will cling to skepticism as an entitlement and harbor cynicism as a privilege.  Why so?  Throughout their entirety, life has been a never ending series of powerlessness.  The promise of a better existence in a new nation will ring as another political hoax or a theological other world exit.  A new nation, arising with the promise of total inclusivity, will be met with distrust.  Nation Building will add to the existing citizenship much like the Apostle Paul (a citizen of Rome, a citizen of the Jewish state, and a citizen of Heaven).  Renunciation of the present identification (natural citizenship) will find itself to be unnecessary.  Once again, the only prerequisite that has been pronounced by Nation Building:  rebirth in Jesus Christ.
  7. Nation Building will act as an occasion to replant lives and transplant futures. The contemporary application of the principle of gleaning will spread into the erection of a new nation.
  8. God can call people into His plan in whatever era that they exist where unrighteousness may appear to prevail over the multitudes. An Old Testament prophet announced that hell has enlarged itself. Violence, oppression, idolatry, and the worship of other gods all shall represent a just cause for God to choose an individual or a people to perform a new assignment.  Without any debate, the evidence has pointed to the rise of rebellion and wickedness throughout this contemporary age.  Nation Building will drum out loudly salvation through Jesus Christ.  Nation Building shall herald the Gospel and will summon the people to covenant living.  Obedience and peace will describe the only possible pathway (Nation Building) to arrive at full nationhood status.  A practice of faith, based on the Holy Scriptures, will incontrovertibly display something unique and different than what has currently dominated the visual senses.
  9. Only through the strength of covenant living can the weak and the strong find common ground for growth and development.
  10. Nation Building will contain all the ingredients for the imperfect people and the impoverished people to advance, because Nation Building has no sufficiency apart from the Spirit of God.

PART V

            Nation Building, arriving at full nationhood status, can only emerge through the power and will of an Almighty God.  The infrastructure can only be established by the Spirit of God.  The citizenry can only be fulfilled by a people who have chosen to exercise faith in the promises of God.

  1. The mechanism of Nation Building shall make a personal appeal to the perspective citizenry to pursue recognition of nationhood as a collective body, not merely a voting bloc as an aligned constituency.
  2. Nation Building will proclaim theocracy a victor over democracy. Theocracy will liberate the mind and set the spirit free from an entangled and entrenched practice in the philosophy and exercise of democracy.  The Word of God is not up for an earthly discussion.  It has been forever settled in Heaven.
  3. Nation Building has no intention of ever being mistaken as an entitlement program. Nation Building will rely upon the provisions that shall be made available by God and His riches in Glory!
  4. Nation Building shall transcend any fantasy or air castle. The initiative will proffer a systemic approach to building lives, recovering lives, and restoring lives through covenant living.
  5. Under the shelter of separate economic, political, and social umbrellas, Biblical justice has extended a theological canopy as a place of refuge for the imperfect, the impoverished, and the ostracized from the coeval dominant powers. Nation Building will reject power by repressive ordinances or any demonstration of oppressive force.
  6. Nation Building can concatenate a common culture, conscientious commerce engagement, political infrastructure, and a spirited sense of kinship. Faith can provide a means of protection to shelter the imperfect people and the impoverished people without an intrusion on territorial boundaries. The protection would be expanded to cover the unforeseen through the application of faith.  Faith will serve as the buttress that can reinforce the series of links, keeping each link of the chain strong.
  7. The Nation Builder shall represent both the peace and the power of Jesus Christ. The message (the Doctrine of Nation Building) will offer a pathway to heal and to reconcile people within the context of nationhood as an exemplar of covenant living (peace). Also, the communication will demonstrate the strength to change directions, while establishing a new focus in life (power).
  8. The combination of peace and power (succinctly deployed) shall create environs for harmonious living. The Nation Builder will not employ disruptive tactics, but shall offer a stimulating message that will be geared toward harmony.  The equipoise of the forces (spirit and nature) that breathe a symmetry of uniformity into people will arise through the Doctrine of Nation Building.
  9. An Ambassador of Peace must proclaim unity. A nation build upon unity as defined by the Father will practice righteousness. With this principle in operation, the Nation Builder shall seek a consensus that will embrace fellowship, friendship, rapport, and solidarity.
  10. The Nation Builder, as an Ambassador of Peace, shall advocate for a cohesive coexistence among all people; thereby, promoting a classless and a past-less society.
