SEPARATING THE SPIRITUAL FROM THE PHYSICAL
THE HIDDEN MEANING
In these next scriptures, we at VAL-TE’ believe introduces the interconnected relationship between individuals, groups and institutions with shared behavior, norms, and values that combine to form society. Therefore, brethren, having boldness to enter the Holiest by the blood of Immanuel, by a new and living way which He consecrated for us, through the veil, that is, His flesh, and having a High Priest over the house of God, let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching. Hebrews 10: 19-25 NKJV
(WHITE) JESUS – Your attitude should be the same as that of Immanuel: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death – even death on a cross! Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Immanuel every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Immanuel is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2: 5-11 NIV
John 13: 12-17 – After Immanuel washed their feet, he put his outer garment back on and returned to his place at the table. “Don’t you understand what I have just done to you?” he asked. “You call me Teacher and Lord, and it is right that you do so, because that is what I am. I, your Lord and Teacher, have just washed your feet. You, then, should wash one another’s feet. I have set an example for you, so that you will do just what I have done for you. I am telling you the truth: no slaves are greater than their master, and no messengers are greater than the one who sent them. Now that you know this truth, how happy you will be if you put it into practice…” GNT
System of Power (An Organized Set of Doctrines, Ideas, or Principles Usually Intended to Explain the Arrangement or Working of a Systematic Whole) – We at VAL-TE’ also believe is a set of principles or procedures according to which something is done; an organized framework or method. Having been developed through a white culture lens, rewarding those who can adapt to white culture and punishing those who don’t.
