Recorded and aired on the three St. Louis Bott Radio Network stations just before “Juneteenth,” June 19th, Lynne Jackson explains its meaning to me and its importance. While President Abraham Lincoln signed the “Emancipation Proclamation” on January 1, 1863 – in the middle of the Civil War – the last of the slaves in Texas didn’t get the word that they were “free” until June 1865, 2 years later!
This situation in the United States “birthed” the ongoing celebration called “Juneteenth!”
(Had they had social media like today, they would have learned of their freedom before President Lincoln’s ink was dry in signing the Emancipation Proclamation.)
While longtime friend Lynne Jackson and has been and is a good “steward” of her biological ancestors, my wife Joan and I hold her in such high regard! She is a “Jesus follower,” and looks to represent Him in all of her dealings, public and private.
Instead of fueling racial hate and hostility, she chooses to find honor and to honor her family roots as she follows the teachings of Jesus as quoted below:
(From the words of Jesus:) “A new commandment I give you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another. By this shall all men know that you are my disciples if you have love for one another.” (John 13: 34 & 35)
And from the prayer of Jesus in John 17: “I do not ask on behalf of these alone (His followers when He lived on earth) but for those also who believe on me through their word; that they may all be one; even as you, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be in Us, so that the world may believe that You sent Me.”
(Jesus prayer for us continued) “The glory that you have given Me I have given to them, that they be one, just as We are one; I in them and You in Me, that they may be perfected in unity, so that the world may know that You sent Me, and loved them, even as You have loved Me.”
His continuing prayer contains a wonderful promise regarding our forever home in Heaven for the future for those who belong to Jesus, having received Him by faith…
“Father, I desire that they also, whom You have given Me, be with me where I am, so that they may see My glory which You have given Me, for you loved Me before the foundation of the world.
And from the prayer of Jesus in John 17: “I do not ask on behalf of these alone (His followers when He lived on earth) but for those also who believe on me through their word; that they may all be one; that they may all be one; even as you, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be in Us, so that the world may believe that You sent Me.”
(Jesus prayer for us continues:) “The glory that you have given Me I have given to them, that they be one, just as We are one; I in them and You in Me, that they may be perfected in unity, so that the world may know that You sent Me, and loved them, even as You have loved Me.” (Again, from the prayer of Jesus in John 17:20 – 24)
And from the book of Revelation, the last of the 66 books that compose the Bible, about those who make up Heaven forever, and more regarding Jesus Christ: “… for you were slain and purchased for God with Your blood men [mankind] from every tribe and tongue and people and nation.” (Revelation 5:9)
