The Eyes


									            The Eyes
          James E. Scott
         Book 1 Chapter 1
            May 2007

But I would not have you to be ignorant,
brethren, concerning them which are asleep,
that ye sorrow not, even as others which have
no hope.

                         I Thessalonians 4:13

                                 Numbers 10:31

That the men and women of African descent in the Scott
family assume their rightful position in God’s eyes and in
His purpose.

To insure that information contained in this information
letter is passed to the children of our family and to our
children’s children…

                                            James E. Scott
But of the times and the season, brethren, ye have no need
that I write unto you. For yourselves know perfectly that
the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.

For when they shall say, Peace and Safety;
then sudden destruction cometh upon them,
as travail upon a woman with child;
And they shall not escape.

                                              Saul of Tarsus

You ask a lot of questions. But the reality of it all is that
you will die. And when you do you will stand before God.
And you will be judged.

You applaud medical science. And then thank God. You
gave medical advances to God as if He is the entity that
propels your pursuit of it. To you I say woe.

Lower Fertility: A Wise Investment

Scientific America, September 2006, Energy’s Future Beyond
Carbon. (Sub. Tit.) How to Power the Economy and Still Fight
Global Warming.

Within this issue they have dedicated themselves to explaining
the world’s purposed plan for preserving the earth’s resources
and stabilizing the world economic unit.

In browsing through this issue the thing that caught my eye was
an article entitled, “Fusion and Other Dream.”
This was unusual to me because hydrogen fusion in 1995
became a science. (The theory was proven plausible) Theory
became fact.

And here a decade later one of the most prestigious scientific
magazines in the world has placed this find of epic proportions
in the category of pipe dreams.

If traveling long distances fast and clean is truly an issue of
efficiency and conservation. Then hydrogen fusion is the ideal
solution. It’s everywhere, hydrogen can be found in the air that
we breathe, the water that we drink. Hydrogen is one of the few
substances known to man as being limitless and inexhaustible.

So, why aren’t they pursuing this miracle? Reduced to a pipe

In my examination of this scientific publication I came across
another article I found most unusual.

Lower Fertility: A Wise Investment (Sub. Tit.-Plans that
encourage voluntary, steep reduction in the fertility rates of poor
nations pay dividends in sustainability for everyone.)
This article was written by: Jeffery D. Sachs, Director of the
Earth Institute at Columbia University and of the Millennium
Project. The Millennium Project is an organization established
by the United Nations. “A vision for the next one thousand

Jeffery Sachs starts his assessment of the project by saying,
“The world faces looming ecological threats from the incredible
stress that global economic activity places on our major
ecosystems.” In his very next statement he says, “Rapid
population growth is not the main driver today of these threats.”
So, why is steep reduction in fertility rates so important? And,
why is the focus on the poor?

Not very long ago the poor of the world were identified as the
third world people. There is a third world in America.

In Debran Rowland Esquire’s book, The Boundaries of Her
Body, we can examine the Why.

The Boundaries of Her Body is the definitive history of the
cycle of advances and setbacks that characterize women’s rights
in America. Debran Rowland chronicles the issues involved
from the women’s point of view. Revealing why each case is
significant, and why it still matters today.

The topics are:

     1) Reproductive rights – How women can be forced to
        complete unwanted pregnancies or denied the
        opportunity to become pregnant.
     2) Women at work – How women still earn 76 cents for
        every dollar a man earns despite more advanced degrees,
        more education and more women in the workforce.
     3) Adolescent women – How “pre-women” are sexualized
        by peers, media, and popular culture, but are legally too
        young to consent to sex.
     4) Violence against women – How the most dangerous
        place for women in America is in their own homes, and
        why violence against women remains primarily intimate
        partner violence.

We will examine the first of these four topics:

                      Reproductive Rights

Long before Meriwether Lewis was born – indeed, even before
the first boatload of pilgrims set scarred boot to Massachusetts
soil, women were being devised out of the burgeoning power
structure and, thus, away from potential for equality in their new
land. With the signing of the Mayflower Compact off the shores
of Cape Cod in November of 1620, a “civil body politick” was
born with the goals of “ordering” and “preserving” society by
framing “such just and equal laws as shall be thought most meet
and convenient for the general good of the colony.”

A “general good” determined by men and expressly exclusive
only of men.

The signing of the Mayflower Compact set the stage for the
Constitutional Convention of 1787, with “the men in both
contexts engaged in the same enterprise – mutual consent to the
creation of elected governments,” argues Cornell University
Professor of American History, Mary Beth Morton. But these
were governments by men, for men. Though the founding
fathers of the 1780’s were “Children of the Enlightment,” their
ultimate “ideology” was respectful of “men’s equality,
rationality, and individuality.”

And though the meeting of the minds off the coast of Cape Cod
and the Constitutional Convention were separated by 167 years,
these events mirrored each other in two important ways: “All of
those who signed both documents were white male heads of
households, men of substance and standing in their respective
communities. In both 1620 and 1787, society conceptualized
women as dependants whose menfolk would speak and act for
them in economic, political, and legal affairs,” Norton notes.

Note:    The points of injustice to women are important because they draw a
         clear timeline of racial injustices. The slight relief of oppression
         experienced in this nation today by blacks and other minorities are
         largely due to advancement made by the Women’s Rights Movement.
         End of note.

Society conceptualized blacks and other minorities as
dependants of those white male heads of households, men of
substance and standing in their respective communities, who

would speak and act for them in economic, political, and legal
affairs. This hasn’t changed today.

Rowland documents some of the words of William Shakespeare:
Women were thought incapable of profound reasoning, because
– in the words of Shakespeare – They were “ruled by the moon.”

Note:     I often wondered why that black man in the movie Roots held the
          black baby up to the moon. End of note.

Shakespeare continues:
In addition, an “addled” brain and a “child-like” disposition
explained why women should not study math or science.

Note:     The same reasoning used by American whites who were and still are
          against educating blacks. (Look at our schools.) End of note.

Shakespeare goes on:
Women of the upper class should learn to write, of course,
because good penmanship was a sign of good breeding. And, to
read, so that she might pepper her conversation with swift quips
and clever quotes.

Note:     Read W.E.B. Dubois’ ideology of the 200 black elite, and, their
          elitism. (Token Negros) End of note.

Shakespeare again:
A young lady should learn to paint to amuse herself and to play
a musical instrument so that she might amuse others.

Note:     The minstrels of Negro history, Negro present and Negro future.

          Shakespeare seems to have studied mythology. Not with any real
          depth though. Not a very bright guy.

          In Jack Tresidder’s book, The Complete Dictionary of Symbols, he
          speaks of many mythological symbols.
          Astraea lived happily in the age of gold but later, in the ages of bronze
          and iron, could not endure human wickedness and became the “Starry
          Maid,” the constellation Virgo. She represents innocence and justice,
          and is depicted (as on the criminal courts of the Old Bailey, London)
          wielding a sword of truth and scales of justice.

          I don’t think Shakespeare was deep at all. End of note.

I have extracted excerpts from Roland’s book specifically to
provide you the opportunity to view the language used in
women’s pursuit of equality and justice. And, the language used
to suppress the pursuit of equality and justice of American black
people. The language is the same.

The stupidity of these colonial leaders, the founding fathers of
ours, is that, because the language was the same, any
opportunity, any hint of justice or equality given to these
women, opened the door for Black Americans to receive the

And, I believe it is important to note, these women seeking
opportunity, seeking equality were white women who wanted to
be equal with their white ruling husbands. The original intent of
this pressure building push had nothing to do with women of
other races and other colors. These other women were included
only when the white pressure builders sought power in numbers.

Points brought out by Angela Y. Davis during the 1960’s, her
days of rebellion.

Personal Note:   As a young man, even as a teen growing up in Watts, I rejected
                 Ms. Davis’ writings and opinions because of her socialist and
                 communist ties. She was rarely, if ever, spoken of in our home,
                 even though she was an extremely vocal college professor at the
                 time. Angela Y. Davis was and is a brilliant black woman, far
                 ahead of her time, understanding the legislation and
                 governmental functions geared to suppress and oppress blacks
                 and other minorities. (i.e. “Jim Crow” and all before it and after
                 it) I’m sorry now I didn’t listen to her or read her material in
                 my earlier years.

If you have the opportunity, please pick up and read her
pamphlet entitled “Afro-American Women – A History, and her
book Women, Race and Class.” Excellent reads and very
informative. If you don’t know how to get them, because her
writings are difficult to acquire today, please contact me and I
will get them for you.

The first chapter and first paragraph of Ms. Davis’ book
Women, Race and Class reads:
When the influential scholar Ulrich B. Philips declared in 1918
that slavery in the Old South had impressed upon African
savages and their native-born descendants the glorious stamp of
civilization, he set the stage for a long and passionate debate. As
the decades passed and the debate raged on, one historian after
another confidently professed to have deciphered the real
meaning of the “peculiar institution.” But amidst all that
scholarly activity, the special situation of the female slave
remained unpenetrated. The ceaseless arguments about her
“sexual promiscuity” or her “matriarchal” proclivities obscured,
much more than they illuminated, the condition of black women

during slavery. Herbert Aptheker remains one of the few
historians who attempted to establish a more realistic basis for
the understanding of the female slave.

Ms. Davis demonstrates that by World War I’s end, black men
and black women were viewed as savages on the brink of
becoming civilized.

By 1918 the Women’s Rights Movement had become a force to
reckon with in America. And, white America was still trying to
figure out whether the black woman was matriarchal or

Chapter 12 of Women, Race and Class, Angela Davis argues on:
“Class bias and racism creeping into the birth control movement
when it was still in its infancy.”
More and more it was assumed within birth control circles that
poor women, black and immigrant alike, had a “moral obligation
to restrict the size of their families.” What was demanded as a
“right” for the privileged came to be interpreted as a duty for the

Debran Rowland uses several excerpts from this chapter in her
book, The Boundaries of Her Body.

Now, why do Jeffrey D. Sachs, Columbia University and the
United Nations’ Millennium Project, believe that the poor of the
world, America’s third world people, “blacks” and “immigrants”
need to endure steep fertility rate reductions? Debran Rowland,
in her book, gives a response and the why.

The twentieth century dawned in America on a falling white
birth rate. In 1800, an average of seven children were born to
each “American-born white wife” historians report. By 1900,
that number had fallen to roughly half. Though there may have
been several factors, some historians suggest that this decline –
occurring as it did among young white women – may have been
due to the use of contraceptives or abstinence, though few talked
openly about it.

“In spite of all the rhetoric against birth control, the birthrate
plummeted in the late nineteenth century in America and
western Europe (as it had in France the century before); family
size was halved by the time of World War I,” notes Shari Thurer
in The Myth of Motherhood.

As issues go, the “plummeting birthrate” among whites was a
powder keg, sparking outcry as the “failure” of the privileged
class to have children was contrasted with the “failure” of poor
immigrants and minorities (blacks) to control the number of
children they were having. Criticism was loud and rampant.
“The upper classes started the trend, and by the 1880’s the
swarms of ragged children produced by the poor were regarded
by the bourgeoisie, so Emile Zola’s novels inform us, as
evidence of the lower orders ignorance and brutality,” Thurer

Note:     In the year 2000 the birthrate of whites dropped to a firm 2 children
          per household. End of note.

The white male heads of households, men of substance and
standing in their respective communities are afraid of being

outnumbered by those ignorant brutes of the lower order,
“blacks and immigrants.”

When that happens, and it will, those white males and their
white women will no longer control the industrialized nations of
the world.

                     He didn’t have to die.

Since the late 1700’s, contraception was being used to keep the
“lower orders” population growth down.

This is brought out in Ms. Rowland’s book.
But the seeds of this then-still nearly invisible movement had
been planted much earlier. In the late 1700’s British political
theorists began disseminating information on contraceptives as
concerns of overpopulation grew among some classes. Despite
the separation of an ocean, by the 1820’s, this information was
“seeping” into the United States.

“Before the introduction of the Comstock Laws, contraceptive
devices were openly advertised in newspapers, tabloids,
pamphlets, and health magazines,” Yalom notes. Condoms had
become increasingly popular since the 1830’s, when vulcanized
rubber (the invention of Charles Goodyear) began to replace the
earlier sheepskin models. Vaginal sponges also grew in
popularity during the 1840’s, as women traded letters and advice
on contraceptives. Of course, prosecutions under the Comstock
Act went a long way toward chilling public discussion.

Then there’s Margaret Sanger, the woman who brought birth
control and abortion to the federal government of the United
States. She will be discussed in later issues.

                           The Congo

Many have heard the cries of the people dying in Africa. I would
like to bring some important points to light briefly.

In the exploits of Hitler during W.W. II, churches and church
people sat idly by and allowed an estimated 2 million Jews to
die horrible deaths. W.W. II in world history was a 6-year war.

Over the last 6 years 3.9 million men, women and children had
died brutal, horrible deaths, 40,000 women and young girls
raped. The first people attacked were in Christian communities.
The Congo today is identified as the “killing fields.”

And the United Nations and the Western Powers of the world
are watching.

And God is watching them.

Christianity Today Magazine, July 2006 issue lists this
information I’ve just given. On the cover it says, Hope in the
Heart of Darkness.
Pierre Machiels, World Vision Program director says, “This
country is filthy rich, but people are starving. Women are raped,
children abandoned, pygmies annihilated.”

Bayoba Biguge, a church leader in Bukaru, an eastern border
city of 1 million says, “Rebel groups fight each other and the
government over territory and mining of diamonds, gold, and
coltan. (Coltan is a metal vital for manufacturing electronics).
Illegal trade makes the conflict highly profitable. Coltan has sold
for as much as $400, U.S., per kilogram. (a kilo is 2.2 lb.)

Famine is a thing these people never knew existed until now.

The largest United Nations peacekeeping force in the world,
19,000 soldiers, are there watching the annihilation. 1200 people
die daily from conflict related causes.

Lower Fertility: A Wise Investment says Jeffery D. Sachs,
Columbia University, and the United Nations Millennium

How about GENOCIDE!

The title, The Heart of Darkness, was taken from Joseph
Conrad’s 1902 novella. The Democratic Republic of Congo was
formerly Zaire.

Newsweek magazine dated May 15, 2006 is dedicated to the 25th
anniversary of HIV AIDS in America, special edition.

The entire magazine is addressing the AIDS epidemic and they
have offered some disturbing information about blacks in
America and AIDS.


What’s happening is an epidemic among black women, their
husbands, boyfriends, brothers, sisters, sons, and daughters.
Twenty five years after the virus was first documented in gay
white men, HIV has increasingly become a disease of color,
with blacks bearing the heaviest burden by far.
African-Americans make up just 13 percent of the U.S.
population but account for an astounding 51 percent of new HIV
diagnoses. Black men are diagnosed at more than seven times
the rate of white men, black females at 20 times the rate of white

Decades into the epidemic, scientists have made enormous
strides in unlocking the disease at the molecular level.
Understanding why HIV has taken hold of black America and
how to prevent its spread has proven to be no less daunting a
challenge. The root of the problem is poverty and the neglect
that comes with it.

Note:     Before I comment on what Newsweek reported I wanted to define the
          word poverty. In the dictionary I’m using it lists a definition by use of
          It is – Indigence, penury, want, destitution, and poor. End of note.

Plans that encourage voluntary, steep reductions in the fertility
rates of the poor pay dividends in sustainability for everyone,
says Jeffery D. Sachs, Columbia University and the United
Nations Millennium Project.

There is a third world in America.


The virus once referred to as “gay-related immunodeficiency
disease” has become increasingly gender blind, especially in the
black community, where heterosexual transmission accounts for
25 percent of male infections. Men who have sex with men still
account for almost half of all male cases. Distrust of the medical
establishment has never fully waned since the Tuskegee Syphilis
Experiment, launched in the 1930’s.

Note:     “Understanding why HIV has taken hold of Black America and how
          to prevent its spread has proven to be no less daunting a challenge for

I would like to share a story with you. The story comes from the
Book of Jonah chapter 4 verses 9-11.

                          Jonah, Ch.4 vs. 9-11

And God said to Jonah, doest thou well to be angry for the
gourd? And he said, I do well to be angry even unto death.

Then said the Lord. Thou hast had pity on the gourd, for which
thou hast not laboured, neither madest it grow; which came up in
a night, and perished in a night:

And should not I spare Nineveh, that great city, wherein are
more than six score thousand persons that cannot discern
between their right hand and their left hand; and also much

I love reading the word of God. He’s so absolute. It is so cool to
read His words and know it is final. While living in a world
where living a life as a question mark is in fashion or in vogue.

Jesus says in Revelation 3:15-16

I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would
thou wert cold or hot.

So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I
will spue thee out of my mouth.

Hot or cold, white or black, light or darkness. There is no middle
of the road with God. “It is finished.”

The book of Jonah is full of many fantastic lessons to teach or
preach. Finis Jennings Dake, a Baptist preacher from Georgia
writes in one of his commentaries on the book of Jonah.
This note:

The final end of this story is not recorded. It is not known how
long he remained angry, whether he ever overcame this feeling,
or how long Nineveh remained in a state of faith to God. The
answer to these and other questions wait for eternity to make
clear. Many good lessons are possible by a careful application of
the facts of this book to our lives. We can all profit by the
mistakes of Jonah and learn to be patient and merciful to our
fellowmen, to do God’s work without being forced to do it, and
to appreciate life and all it holds without living in anger until
death, as Jonah contended was well to do in his case.

I must have heard this story preached a thousand times or maybe
a million. And, never have I heard anyone preach the whole
story, always the first second or third chapter. When the fourth
chapter delivers you from milk and offers a platter of meat. It
shines a light on just how deep God really is.

Now, it could be that many preachers believe that they must
protect the common folk from the depth of God’s word, just too
heavy for you commoners. Or maybe they don’t know

Note:    Keep in mind now, God is absolute. End of note.

So, why would God put anything in the Bible, (your guide for
life) that could not be found, or verified by the Bible?

This book is easily understood if you read and understand two
other books of the Bible, the book of Isaiah, and the book of
Nahum. If you put these books in the order they were actually
prophesied, they look like this:

  1. Jonah – written about 853-824 BCE
  2. Isaiah – written about 792-722 BCE
  3. Nahum – written about 786-757 BCE

Note:    Nineveh is not a nation itself. It is the capital of a nation. The nation is
         Assyria. End of note.

So when God is talking about Nineveh, He is actually talking
about the nation of Assyria.

The book of Jonah tells us that God wanted Assyria to execute
His will on the nation Israel. And, Jonah did not want to
participate in bringing destruction to Israel. So, after God told
him what was happ’nin or after the word of the Lord came to
Jonah, he got up and ran.

Now, if God is all knowing, all seeing, all hearing, all
everything. You’d think Jonah would know you can’t run from

The Assyrians were chosen by God to do His work. But they
had to hear His word, so they could be saved, so they could
follow his word. And, Jonah was the preacher God chose to
deliver His word. But Jonah didn’t want to deliver God’s word
to Nineveh because he wanted to save the nation Israel who
heard God’s word, knew God’s word, saw all the benefits of His
many, many blessings, but would not follow his word. Whew,
all that in one breath.

F.J. Dake makes a good observation about this area of the book.

F.J. Dake:

This illustrates the mercy of God. The God of Israel warns all
men of their sinful ways, seeking to turn them from destruction.
Jonah knew that his God was merciful and that is why he was
fleeing; he did not want Him to show mercy to the enemies of
his people. He wanted them destroyed but it would be unlike
God to fail or refuse to warn man of coming destruction and
give him an opportunity to avoid it.

Note:     Jonah rose to flee from God’s presence. “From the presence of the
          Lord,” is found 3 times in the first chapter, twice in verse 3 and once
          in verse 10.

          Being in the presence of God is wonderful to those who love Him.
          Multitudes have longed for the presence of God. Jonah was willing to
          sacrifice his coveted place, and even give his life to save his people
          from Nineveh and the Assyrians. He did sacrifice his life trying to
          save them when he was thrown into the sea. End of note.

Christians of the Scott families, I believe with everything that is
within me, that we are a collective, one whole body, a single
family unit. I know what I was, a hideous creeping thing with
two legs. And I know what the precious atoning blood of Jesus
Christ has made me, a man of God. I want my family to survive.

F. J. Dake’s final review of chapter 2, 3, and 4.


What good was his prayers? A man who is angry at the mercy
and pleasure of God does not need to expect his prayers to be
answered. Think of it! A man who had caused 120,000 people to
become converted to God and His will, became angry because
his ministry was fruitful! This shows only one thing. That Jonah
was deeply patriotic and put this above the souls of men and the
will of God. The book of Jonah is a story of a bigoted Jew who
after being chastened of the Lord for disobedience, preached to
and converted the whole city of Nineveh. Nineveh could not
have believed God with no word of God to believe, for faith
comes by hearing and hearing by the word of God.
Romans 10:17

In the book of Isaiah, chapter 36, 37, 38 and 39, the story of
Hezekiah, you will see how God used the Assyrians to attack
and nearly destroy Israel.

In the book of Nahum he is prophesying God’s judgment of
Nineveh or Assyria. Assyria went too far in their campaign
through Israel. Apparently, Nineveh had received specifics as to
how much damage to Israel God wanted done. The Assyrians
believing they could take it all disobeyed God and went for it.
They got as far as Jerusalem. God stopped the Assyrian army by
killing 185,000 Assyrian soldiers. They had to retreat. The
actual occurrence can be read in the book of Isaiah.

In chapter 3 verse 8, God is reminding the Assyrians how they
took Egypt by defeating No. No was the name of the capital of
Egypt. God is telling them the similar destruction of No and
Nineveh. And just as Assyria defeated Egypt by destroying its
capital, so shall Assyria be defeated by a nation destroying its
capital. Then God tells them who’s gonna’ do it!

I love this attribute of God. He’s like in your face.

And in the book of Jonah, chapter 4 verse 11, the six score
thousand persons that cannot discern between their right hand
and their left hand.

  1) Most theologians equate six score thousand to be 120,000.
  2) That cannot discern. This discern is not to be lumped into
     grouping with discerning of spirits. As mentioned in I
     Corinthians 12:10. This is supernatural revelation, or
     insight into the realm of spirits to detect them and their

     plans and to read the minds of men. Examples of this
     supernatural activity taking place can be found in MT 9:4,
     LK 13:16, JN 2:25, Acts 13:9-10, 16:16, I Tim 4:1-4, and I
     JN 4:1-6.
  3) That cannot discern. This simply means knowledge,
     understand or understanding, be sure, of surety, know,
     known, tell. This discern is a learned experience.
     Something people learn as they age.

                   Right Hand and Left Hand

Hands are used many ways in scripture. The right hand in
Jonah 4:11 means change or to change or to change places.

The use of left hand in Jonah 4:11 means to wrap up, to cover.
The same way a woman covers her body by putting on a dress or
the way a letter is neatly folded to fit inside the wrappings of or
covering of an envelope. This action takes place through
familiarization and adaptation.

The operative of this understanding is to fit. And whatever it is
that God wants to fit the 120,000 people requires familiarization
and adaptation. It takes time.

To understand much of the language of God, the first thing you
must understand is God is dealing with one man or one group of
people while His vision is on their generations to come. God is
working with David, keeping him straight, keeping him in line.
While God’s eyes were on the prize of the offspring of David’s
seed. That prize was Jesus Christ, the Messiah. God is always
looking at generations.

So, what God is looking for, or what God is saying about these
120,000 people is that they are young enough (children) and the
wicked ways of older people hasn’t consumed them yet. They
can change. A change can come to these children, the 120,000,
through orientation, familiarization and adaptation of God’s
word. When that happens the word of God will fit them like a
beautiful dress fits a woman, or those words written on a letter
to a loved one, neatly folded to fit the envelope that is just the
right size for the letter. God’s word will cover them. And then,

                         Proverbs 17:4-5

A wicked doer giveth heed to false lips; and a liar giveth ear to a
naughty tongue.

Whoso mocketh the poor reproacheth his maker: and he that is
glad at calamities shall not be unpunished.

                   He didn’t have to die.
