I’m a native fifth-generation Washingtonian and a third cousin to Frederick Douglas. Brothers and sisters of color here in this nation’s capital, I believe we are in trouble if Jesus doesn’t come soon — because a lot of us are giving up.  

Being a believer in the word of God, I try to make sure I write about the truth when it’s about being poor and homeless in Washington D.C.  

I told my best friend that, for me and my house, I plan to hold on to the truth that God is at hand. The handwriting is on the wall, just look around. There is no salvation coming from the America that is now. The word of God is our only relief. Our only true hope is the Kingdom of God which Jesus went to build. He said In my Father’s house are many mansions: if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you.” (John 14:2) This temporary place was for learning and getting us ready for our permanent solution.  

So, like John the Baptist said, repent and get ready, watch, and wait on Jesus. Thank you, Street Sense Media.
