From Clarksdale & Coahoma County A History by Linton Weeks:
At the time Clarksdale applied for its charter, the Mississippi river had flooded the entire alluvial basin. Though the legislators were a bit hesitant to grant a charter to an underwater world, on February 25, 1882, Clarksdale was nevertheless put on the official map as a city.
Revelation 5:6 (AMP)
And there between the throne (with the four living creatures) and among the elders I saw a Lamb (Christ) standing, [bearing scars and wounds] as though it had been slain, with seven horns (complete power) and with seven eyes (complete knowledge), which are the seven Spirits of God who have been sent [on duty] into all the earth.
Our Father in heaven,
We thank You for Your Son Christ Jesus, the Lamb slain from the foundation of the world. We thank You that You have granted Him complete power and knowledge.
We lean on Jesus, and not on our own understanding. We do not know if the unusual circumstances of Clarksdale’s charter gave unseen demonic forces associated with water a claim to the city. If the circumstances of Clarksdale charter did provide a gateway for the demonic, in our ignorance and in our blindness, we humbly ask Jesus to turn the tide.
May our prayers for Clarksdale and Coahoma County be like mustard seeds of faith, seeds of life germinating and growing in the rubble of the destruction accumulated through time, establishing Your kingdom in Clarksdale and Coahoma County as it is in heaven. Amen.
