The "Black Regiment"?Yes, dear friend there was (and once again is) a "Black Regiment"... and it is my blessing to say, that, Iam a part of it. That confession may have some dire consequences for me, as it did for the original group.If I now have caught your attention, then, I am ready to give you the true American HIS- story lesson theone not many today know because so many are steeped in revisionism with ungodly roots and motives,over truth and facts.Beginning as far back in the founding of America as the Plymouth Colony there were those calledseparatists and non-conformists. By today's standards and twisting of language, that does not cast a veryfavorable light on these really fine folks. Even back then in "ancient" HIS- story (HIS = JESUS CHRIST),there were people who wanted to acknowledge GOD and HIS WORD no matter the consequences.Tyrannical kings, such as king James I, declared anyone who disagreed with him (in both civil and churchmatters)(he was head of the English government and also the English state church) as a non-conformist.The people we call today the pilgrims and the puritans were such. Their crime was simply to want the kingto be a Biblical civil magistrate and the Church to be free of corruption and worldliness... a true Christianendeavor. They brought their desire to the "new world" with them. They knew of persecution. People likeJohn Bunyan (Pilgrims Progress) spent 5 years in prison for suggesting that it was not Biblically correct towrite out prayers when THE HOLY SPIRIT could speak through a true believer. Those who did notchallenge the king received great favors... they took a license from the king and got various perks with it.They agreed to not criticize or interfere with any thing the king would do. Please allow me now to fastforward a bit (it is difficult to be brief with such a comprehensive subject) to somewhere around 1730.The situation of England's abuse of its American colonies was escalating. Most people feared opposingthe English king's orders no matter how oppressive... for good reason. There were certain preachers of THE GOSPEL ... true CHRISTIANS.... Who preached from their pulpits and in the public square the sinsof the king. We have today many of those sermons on record. These true servants of THE LORD JESUSCHRIST warned the people and exhorted them to take action. From 1730-1775 (The Battle of Lexington)these preachers fanned the flames of Biblical righteousness and freedom.Most Americans today are unfamiliar with this kind of devotion to CHRIST, this kind of preaching,courage, holy boldness, commitment and patriotism.How many know that the most prominent saying during The American Revolutionary War (what I call thewar for American independence) was.... "We will have no other king but KING JESUS"!Village parsons... pastors... preachers such as Jonas Clark of Lexington and James Caldwell of NewJersey were called by king George 3rd ... are you with me? "The Black Regiment, because of the blackrobes which were customary for them to wear while preaching and the black covered Bibles theypreached from. They believed their call from CHRIST to follow HIM was their qualification. They refused
