The Tulsa Race Massacre of 1921 | Reclamation and Reconciliation Starts with Repentance

Recently, Rabbi Curt Landry and Dr. Howard Hatcher sat down to discuss the spiritual war behind the Tulsa Race Massacre of 1921. 

Rabbi Landry said, “The Lord told me that the underlying sin behind the Tulsa Race Massacre of 1921 that needs to be dealt with is jealousy. Jealousy led to the murder of hundreds of lives.”

Rabbi Landry and Dr. Hatcher discussed the biblical principle of generational sin. When jealousy and strife are left unrepented in our family lines, the bitter seeds continue to reproduce after their kind.

Understanding this biblical principle is the starting point for healing from the Tulsa Race Massacre of 1921. 

How Generational Sin Impacted the Tulsa Race Massacre of 1921

One hundred years ago, anger and jealousy were building up—in the spirit and on the earth. Black Wall Street, the wealthiest black community in the United States located in the Greenwood District of Tulsa, Oklahoma, was burned to the ground and hundreds of innocent lives were taken. 

It was reported that the Tulsa Race Massacre of 1921 started because a 19-year-old black man assaulted a 17-year-old white woman over Memorial Day weekend in the area. Anger, jealousy, and strife began to rise, and rumors spread that the man would be lynched.  

How did hate and strife spread so quickly? Why were so many innocent lives taken? Rabbi Curt Landry and Dr. Howard Hatcher discuss the spiritual aspect of the massacre and how to break the curse of innocent bloodshed in this video…

In short, it started from jealousy. The enemy uses the same emotion today to get us to act in hate. When we see our brothers and sisters thrive, Satan whispers lies and accusations in our ears. His goal is to cause strife and division. 

And when we act upon the emotion, the accusations build. He wants us to believe envy and jealousy are warranted, so he causes us to see the situation through a worldly perspective rather than through the love of the Father.  

Repentance is the only way to stop the cycle. 

Rabbi Curt Landry explains the spiritual battle that was taking place and how sin, when left alone, flows into the next generation

“We have to understand how the accuser works. First, he makes an accusation. He will say, ‘That’s right, that person did this or that.’ This gives you justification for what you want to do in the flesh. This is when he assaults the mind. 

“An emotional whirlwind of fire is ignited. Then comes the snare. You are snared when you come into agreement with it and believe, ‘Yes, that is right. I should do this or that.’

“You see, when you come into agreement with the accusation, then jealousy, revenge, anger, and bitterness become the fruit in your family line. That is passed on from generation to generation. You may not have been there 100 years ago, but the bitterness of the remembrance of what you were accused of and told and came in agreement with… that still influences your mind, will, and emotions. 

“That’s why we have to have ancient markers. As the Church, we must repent and release love and forgiveness. It is the only way reclamation and reconciliation will happen.

“I want every Believer to know that you have the power of repentance. You have the power to break this curse. And if this curse is not broken by the kings, priests, and sons of God, it will continue to flow to the next generation and so on

“The blood of Jesus is the only weapon that will work. The Tulsa Race Massacre of 1921 is a sin problem. The solution to a sin problem is the blood of Jesus. There must be corporate repentance that takes place.”

Dr. Howard Hatcher said this…

“Every one of us has a generational guardian responsibility from a covenantal placement in Christ. As generational guardians, we have the responsibility to repent for the sins of our forefathers. Even Job prayed for forgiveness for the sins that his children committed. 

“Biblically, kings and priests did that. We are kings and priests in Christ. As a generational guardian, when we release that prayer of repentance for what our fathers had done, God accepts that and sends the bud of cleansing. Then legal strongholds are demolished. The accuser of the brethren has no more legal right to penetrate the nation from a high place…” 

A man and woman holding each others hands in repent of the sins their forefathers.

Are You Ready to Release Healing, Love, and Forgiveness?

Let us come into agreement and repent of the sins of our forefathers from the Tulsa Race Massacre of 1921. 

Dr. Howard Hatcher lifted up this prayer. Will you pray for reconciliation and redemption today?

“Father God, we release the word of reconciliation and redemption, in the name of Yeshua. And we want to thank you for bringing healing, Father, right now, as covenantal guardians, serving as generational guardians over our families and over our nation. We ask now, Father God, for the forgiveness of our sins, one against another. If we have held any bitterness and unforgiveness, reveal it and we release it. We ask for forgiveness. For those in our family lines who have held on to bitterness, anger, and unforgiveness, we release them from the blood debt and from their blood guilt. 

“We release them all from their sins against our families because you said that if we don’t forgive one another, then our Heavenly Father won’t forgive us of our blood debt. So Lord, we release everyone in your sight, even now. 

“Brothers and sisters, pray with me now, ‘I release every blood debt and blood guilt that the accuser of the brethren has used to exploit. Father, keep doors open for movement in our generation, O Lord. We cut off the bitterness, jealousy, and blood guilt in Jesus’ name, amen.’”

We encourage you to watch this powerful prophetic discussion between Rabbi Curt Landry and Dr. Howard Hatcher. 

Ask the Spirit to use your words and prayers to bring healing to the land.
