I came here tonight to talk about the electoral process and the Black vote. In the book of Revelation, it reads, “And the nations were angry, and thy wrath is come, and it is the time of the dead, that they should be judged,” or given justice. The nations were angry. All the nations of the earth today are angry. And the Book says, “and thy wrath is come.” If you can look at what is happening globally and then focus in on what is happening in America, it is obvious that the God of nature is angry.
