Royal Decree of Graces of 1815: Roots of Blanqueamiento

0 Posted by - December 14, 2021 - Black History, LATEST POSTS, SLAVERY

When farming became profitable in the Caribbean and the continental Americas, the slave trade saw a large number of Africans brought over as the primary workforce. A large Black population meant a large force to deal with if ideals of freedom–often wrapped up in rebellion–got around. To counter this and overall concerns of rebellion a new Royal Decree was drawn up. This was Real Cédula de Gracias de 1815 or the Royal Decree of Graces of 1815.



What this decree did was promote Spanish immigration to the Caribbean as turmoil was bubbling in its colonies. The superpower took a huge blow with Mexico fighting for its independence and making trade incredibly difficult. With trade throttled because of conflict, the decree was a preemptive step in other colonies.

Spain updated the decree fifteen years later. By this time it had lost Mexico and news of rebellion and independence was spreading. As a result, Spain opened its doors to non-Spanish Europeans. These newcomers were promised land and rights after a few year but they had to swear loyalty to the crown. This also meant that slave labor saw a significant bump at this time.

Because of the Royal Decree of Graces of 1815, an estimated 450,000 European immigrants arrived in the Caribbean during this period. They would marry those of the local population and become part of the political and cultural spheres in the Caribbean for the next century and beyond.

Ultimately, the decree was a gasping effort for Spain to hold on to what few colonies it had in the New World. It would lose the rest of its colonies as a result of the Treaty of Paris following the outcome of the Spanish-American War.

    Hey, how’s it going?

    I want to pass along some very important news that everyone needs to hear!

    In December of 2017, Donald Trump made history by recognizing Jerusalem as the captial of Israel. Why is this big news? Because by this the Jewish people of Israel are now able to press forward in bringing about the Third Temple prophesied in the Bible.

    Jewish Rabbis have publicly announced that their Messiah will be revealed in the coming years who will be a leader and spiritual guide to all nations, gathering all religions under the worship of one God. They deny Jesus as their Messiah, and the Bible tells us this Jewish Messiah will be the counterfiet that will bring about a false peace, and ultimatley the great tribulation.

    They even printed a coin to raise money for the Temple with Donald Trumps face on the front and with king Cyrus'(who built the second Temple) behind him. On the back of the coin is an image of the third Temple.

    More importantly, the power that runs the world wants to put a RFID microchip in our body making us total slaves to them. This chip matches perfectly with the Mark of the Beast in the Bible, more specifically in Revelation 13:16-18:

    “He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name.

    Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666.”

    Referring to the last days, this could only be speaking of a cashless society, which we have yet to see, but are heading towards. Otherwise, we could still buy or sell without the mark amongst others if physical money was still currency. This Mark couldn’t be spiritual because the word references two different physical locations. If it was spiritual it would just say in the forehead. RFID microchip implant technology will be the future of a one world cashless society containing digital currency. It will be implanted in the right-hand or the forehead, and we cannot buy or sell without it! We must grow strong in Jesus. AT ALL COSTS, DO NOT TAKE IT!

    “Then a third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, “If anyone worships the beast and his image, and receives his mark on his forehead or on his hand, he himself shall also drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out full strength into the cup of His indignation. He shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels and in the presence of the Lamb. And the smoke of their torment ascends forever and ever; and they have no rest day or night, who worship the beast and his image, and whoever receives the mark of his name” (Revelation 14:9-11).

    People have been saying the end is coming for many years, but we needed two key things. One, the Third Temple, and two, the technology for a cashless society to fulfill the prophecy of the Mark of the Beast.

    If you haven’t already, it is time to seek God with all your heart. Jesus loves you more than you could imagine. He wants to have a relationship with you and redeem you from your sins. Turn to Him and repent while there is still hope! God bless!

    Today, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and tested to see if
    it can survive a forty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
    My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83 views.
    I know this is totally off topic but I had to share it
    with someone!
