The war for the throne of which I speak was going on from that time to this time, if we care to follow what is written in the bible. There was always war over land and silver and gold and
earthly possessions. David was involved in many wars and so were many other Kings in his time like King Saul and many others. The historic section of the bible will show you all of those things. David had many children because he had many wives and concubines according to the bible.
Then Solomon his son came up and also had many wives and concubines because they were rich people and rulers of the land. David also sent a brother to the front of the battle field and then took away his wife, I think the brothers name was Uriah, all of this can be found in the bible, so, why should David be more rightious more than any one else after he had done all of these things which we would think is not right?
Then Solomon was dis-respectful to the queen of Sheba, since she was a guest in his house, why would he feed her with a very spicey meal as his guest, and charge her for stealing a drink of the Creators water, when she was thirsty in the middle of the night, is that what wisdom is, set a trap for a woman and then grabbed her and ravished her in the middle of the night?
There are just more questions than answers that we have, and that is why I am crying inside, because the reasoning which we should all be having to clear up all these mysteries, most people are afraid to have. By the way the word devoted just mean that you are serious about something. Now can you do what David and Solomon and others did and get away with it? oh no.
Take the best care of yourself and your people.
Again I send many oceans of blessings and self determination to African people everywhere.
ONE BLACK HEART ONE BLACK LOVE.
