Ye shall have one manner of law, as well for the stranger, as for one of your own country: for I am the Lord Your God. Leviticus 24:22
The western hemisphere is being bombarded with activity of last day eminence. The Lord is signaling from on high, to those that can hear: get prepared for his coming. There must be some occurences in accordance with scripture before: we can expect the imminent return of Christ Jesus the Lord God Almighty. "Until he be taken out of the way.", And then shall that Wicked be revealed, whom the Lord shall consume with the spirit of his mouth, and shall destroy with the brightness of his coming" 2 Thess 2:7b & 8
2010 PowerWord spoken by actions of January 12, 2010 & the ensuing first week AFTER THE QUAKE. "The months and years to follow will become an indictment on our necessity for the Lord God Almighty."
The powerful earthquake that occurred in the western hemisphere in the first weeks of 2010 are evidence of a different time in which we now live, since. As has been said, by others these recent events bring together at once; Europe, Africa & the Americas. The Asia continent by China and the Middle-East nations are not historically tied to the nation of Haiti. That is, four of the seven continents are affected by this event. Over half of the global world. It should be evident, the meanings of this beyond the "typical refrain of the churched". There will be no man-made global society. We may work our fingers to the bone, task our brains to the very limits edge. But what, must occur is "seeing our brother in need", and keeping our bowels open to that need. All who profess Abrahamic lineage must do this. All. And all who adhere to the fact of Omnipotence.
The people of Haiti originated from Africa. The European nations of France, Britain & Spain have historical markers in Haiti's existence. The USA & other Central and South American countries, owe a liberty debt to the island nation. Their would not have been a Louisiana Purchase without Haiti. The puchase of that land stretches from the Gulf of Mexico at New Orleans to Minnesota's Lake Minetonnka. Some are attempting to say, the occurence is because of some "overly sinful acts" of the natives. Even, the natives themselves are split on why this happened. They say that because the symbols of Haitian Government were absolutely destroyed, it is because of "corrupt leadership".
I think not. What has occurred is only with the Lord has said would occur. The aftermath is where the lesson is - We are not prepared.
The Archbishop of Haitian Catholics was killed in the earthquake as he sit in his office. One of Haiti's largest cathedrals was left as a skeleton, with only the walls standing. Here in our nation, hatred abounds. The government's debates in every branch is whether not we may violate "the jots and titles" that will not pass away. The incorpration of african belief systems into catholicism to produce Vodou. Vodou as we know it in Haiti and the Haitian diaspora today is the result of the pressures of many different cultures and ethnicities of people being uprooted from Africa and imported to Hispaniola during the transatlantic African slave trade. Under slavery, African culture and religion was suppressed, lineages were fragmented, and people pooled their religious knowledge and out of this fragmentation became culturally unified. In addition to combining the spirits of many different African and Indian nations, pieces of Roman Catholic liturgy are incorporated to replace lost prayers or elements; in addition images of Catholic saints are used to represent various spirits or "misteh" ["mysteries"], and many saints themselves are honored in Haitian Vodou in their own right. This syncretism allows Haitian Vodou to encompass the African, the Indian, and the European ancestors in a whole and complete way. It is truly a "Kreyol" or Creole religion.
It is an amalgamation of, then; several cultures of religion. If it is said then, the quake came because of religious practices, America should be careful. Our government is stressing inclusion of all religious facets into societal belief systems.
March 12, 2009 For I will restore health unto thee, and I will heal thee of they wounds, saith the Lord; because they called thee an Outcast, saying, This is Zion, whom no man seeketh after.
I'd rather be an Outcast, than a castaway.
And he shall set up an ensign for the nations, and shall assemble the outcasts of Israel, and gather together the dispersed of Judah from the four corners of the earth. Isaiah 11.12 But I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway. 1Corinthians 9:27
*Whereas thou hast been forsaken and hated, so that no man went through thee, I will make thee an eternal excellency, a joy of many generations. Isaiah 60.15
The Lord's Arm is not shortened! He can Save! It's been a long journey and we're still not at home yet. But we are here, now.
Well, finally we are here. Arm of the Lord Ministry of Salvation and Deliverance! 05 - 15 - 2005 The best is still yet to come. Are you prepared and ready for the times that are fast approaching upon us. All of our trying has at times seemed in vain. But now, even now is your Deliverance, closer than you ever thought. This is reality and you know it. The stuff that is not real. The lies that you have been told. The people who have turned their back on you. The one constant, is He who will come. Yet, a little while, and He who shall come will come. But still the things, which must shortly come to pass. * [All of the above, starting at whereas was written in 2005.]
It is 2009 now, and so much has occured in four years. The one constant still remains. His name is Jesus.
