Uncovering that the Scriptures are a Black book from Genesis to Revelation and revealing the spiritual destiny of the last who shall be made first.
In 2012, I prayed and fasted for two-weeks about my Hebrew identity and living Torah. On the last day of my fast I received a call from my prayer partner Danielle which confirmed that I needed to live a Torah based life. As I continued to research Torah through the eyes and history of African Hebrew tribes I started to feel led by the Ruach (spirit) to share what I was learning with Black youth I saw on social media floundering with unanswered questions related to faith. I started to post about Torah and the Black roots of the faith once delivered to the saints. After seeing what I was sharing on social media two African-American women saw the potential Yah (God) put in me and asked me to facilitate two sessions on the Black Presence in the Bible at Trinity Wall Street Church for Black History Month 2014. Those two women were Roz Hall and Roberta Todd of The Union of Black Episcopalians New York chapter. After that workshop people started to ask if I had a book and I didn’t have a book, social media or webpage but during this season Prophetic Whirlwind was born. The inspiration for the name Prophetic Whirlwind: Uncovering the Black Biblical Destiny came from the Honorable Marcus Garvey’s speech Look for Me in the Whirlwind. In this speech Garvey preached about who Black people were and who we would be through the spirit’s power.
From Genesis to Revelation Blacks are central in the Scriptures, yet this presence has been hidden due to prejudice and ignorance. Understanding the Black spiritual heritage is essential to understanding Black history and the freedom movement for justice. Prophetic Whirlwind seeks to uncover this rich history while inspiring through Biblical study and historical analysis. Understanding the Black foundation of the Bible will deepen and challenge your faith, while inspiring you to struggle for Biblical justice. Everyday millions of Black people read the Bible but it is like we are looking in the mirror but can’t recognize our own face.
The Mission of Prophetic Whirlwind is to uncover the Black Biblical Destiny through interactive workshops, lectures, articles, devotionals, social media and Bible studies. By studying to show ourselves approved we will move from shame to shalom and from oppression to liberation.
