Bishop Harry Jackson Says Success of ‘Black Panther’ Shows ‘an Awakening of Desire’ for Racial Justice

As the Marvel blockbuster “Black Panther” sailed past “Titanic” on the all-time list of highest grossing films this past weekend, Bishop Harry Jackson, leader of Hope Christian Church in Maryland, said the film’s success is indicative of “an awakening of the desire” for racial justice.

Jackson, who is one of the main architects of the Reconciled Church Movement which seeks to shift the racial atmosphere of the nation by healing the racial divisions in the church, made the comments during an appearance on “The Jim Bakker Show” last week where he was asked to address the issue of racism.

“We’re in a Kairos moment where Satan is trying to destroy America with the spirit of anarchy, division and separation. And in the movies that are coming out now, ‘Black Panther,’ the ‘Justice League,’ there is a civic pride and awakening going on,” he said.

“What it’s saying to me is that there is an awakening of the desire for [racial] justice that is coming from the heart of man and a desire for supernatural power that’s in all of us. We are called to be reunited with Christ and His spirit and the move and the dynamic of the spirit of God and the gifts of the spirit are supernatural,” he noted.

With current domestic earnings at $665.4 million, the “Black Panther” film, starring Chadwick Boseman, is the third-highest grossing film in North American history, according to CNN. It is only ranked behind “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” and “Avatar.”

Jackson said when it comes to racial divisions, “essentially the devil’s trying to pit us against each other” through a lack of understanding.

“Remember that God originated the racial division at Babel. Their false unity created the atmosphere where God had to break us up. They were at Babel trying to build a tower and a city. An occult tower and they were singing Michael Jackson’s song ‘We Are the World,'” he argued.

“And they were saying ‘hey, it’s true. We can make a better day just you and me.’ No, you can’t,” Jackson said. “Without Jesus, you can’t unify, without Jesus, you’re not united … racism is endemic. In Genesis 11, what happened? The languages are confused. We were separated and so around the language, rose up a culture and then there is ethnicity.”

All the divisions he said happened with the tower of Babel but on the day of Pentecost, he explained that God reunited mankind through His Spirit.
