September 11, 2017 I went to a Worship service at Behold Ministries. Sandy Kirk, PhD. wanted the theme for the Service to be Racial Healing. There has been a lot of racial tension and disparity within the United States and all over the world that needs to be addressed; therefore, the theme given was racial healing and repentance.
An attendee by the name of Chrissy needed help setting up the Media and I assisted. Somewhere along our conversation she said 1423, I mistook it for 1823.
If you look up 1823, here is what happened in United Stated History in 1823:
• February 3 – Jackson Male Academy, precursor of Union University, opens in Tennessee.
• The Arikara War is fought between the Arikara nation and the United States, the first American military conflict with the Plains Indians.
• Hugh Glass is attacked and mauled by a Grizzly bear and left for dead. He crawls 200 miles before reaching help, events depicted in The Revenant (2015 film).
• November 15 – Lone Horn succeeds (probably) his father, and becomes chief of the Minneconjou Sioux; he will be chief until his death on October 16, 1875.
• December 2 – Monroe Doctrine: US President James Monroe delivers a speech to the U.S. Congress, announcing a new policy of forbidding European interference in the Americas and establishing American neutrality in future European conflicts.
• December 23 – A Visit From St. Nicholas, attributed to Clement Clarke Moore, is first published.
If you look up 1423, here is what happened in World History in 1423:
• April 27 – Hussite Wars – Battle of Hořice: The Taborites decisively beat the Utraquists.
• May 21/22 – Byzantine–Ottoman Wars: The Ottoman governor of Thessaly, Turakhan Beg, breaks through the Hexamilion wall, and ravages the Peloponnese Peninsula.
• July 31 – Hundred Years’ War – Battle of Cravant: The French army is defeated at Cravant, on the banks of the River Yonne near Auxerre, by the English and their Burgundian allies.
• August – The Treaty of Sveti Srdj ends the Second Scutari War, waged between the Serbian Despotate and the Venetian Republic, over Scutari, and other former possessions of Zeta, captured by the Venetians.
• The three independent boroughs of Pamplona are united into a single town by royal decree, after centuries of feuds.
• Dan II of Wallachia, with Hungarian help, wins two battles against the Ottomans.
If you look up 1423, the Anti-Defamation League will pull up the following:
https://www.adl.org/education/references/hate-symbols/1423 The number combination 14/23 is a numeric symbol associated with the Southern Brotherhood, the largest white supremacist prison gang in Alabama. The 14 is a reference to the white supremacist “14 Words” slogan (“We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children”), while the 23 refers to the “23 precepts,” a list of rules that Southern Brotherhood members must follow.
Remember the theme was Racial Healing. How can all these things be connected and come up? It also turns out that Sandy Kirk, PhD. wrote the book Wiping the Tears on the Soul of America.
After more worship, I noticed wording near a window, the numbers “1902” were present; therefore, I decided to look up what happened in history.
If you look up 1902, here is what happened in United States History in 1902:

But thou O Daniel, shut up the words and seal up the book, even to the time of end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.
On September 13, 2017 I went to Page and Palette in Downtown Fairhope, Alabama to get some coloring supplies. I noticed that their founding date was 1968 and decided to look up the events that year.
Eight unforgettable ways 1968 made history – CNN
As you can see, all these dates had to do with Race. The Lord is all over this theme and it is the right message for today. We have allowed Race to affect us ways that it shouldn’t. We shall overcome this obstacle and become strong again.
