“Democracy is not prescribed in the Bible, and Christians can and do live under other political systems. But Christians can hardly fail to love democracy, because of all systems it best assures human dignity, the essence of our creation in God’s image.” Charles W. Colson
It is a great time to be alive; this is a time when our Creator is on a mission to set his people on a path to righteousness, and for all who will hearken to his voice, they will have a Miracle working experience. It is time for us to be still and let Yahweh take charge.
CONGRATULATIONS are in order for all people of Faith. Our prayers caused Yahweh to intervene and granted the people of Saint Lucia a victory in keeping with the desires of their hearts. We place Honourable, Philip Joseph Pierre, Prime Minister of Saint Lucia and his Cabinet of Ministers in the protective care of Yahweh, that they will govern in righteousness so that their every action will bring honour and glory to his name.
Fear of the CREATOR is the beginning of all wisdom. We must return to Bible Believing/Christian Principles that governed our actions. There should be a Biblical standard for all to strive for, but instead, some of our leaders are bent on breaking down established standards that worked in the past. However, if those standards are reintroduced, they will work for us today and in the future if the leaders are respectful of the higher power. We must return to Biblical Values. The Bible teachings exhort believers to seek first the kingdom of the Creator and his righteousness, and everything else will be added on.
I have no doubt in my mind that Yahweh not only hears the prayers of Saint Lucians – he answers them. There could have been no other intervention that gave us a SLP victory in the recent elections. Only a few persons saw it coming in such a resounding fashion. In last week’s column, I predicted that 1) The new Government will have a two-thirds majority in the house, 2. The youth will push the winning party over the finishing line, and 3. The two Independent Candidates in Castries were likely to emerge victorious. Many political pundits were far off of reality. Maybe, after running two campaigns in Guyana, I should have been able to make a few bold predictions.
I feel the urge to make this point. The time has come for us to get back to biblical basics and redirect the path of the nation to a gentler, kinder and more spiritual life. Our people must once again submit themselves to biblical principles, when we will begin to honour and respect our Creator, and as a result, we will honour and respect our brothers and sisters. There has been a falling away from religious activities.
Church membership is dropping at a staggering rate; mostly women are now in congregations. Only a few children attend Sunday services. In times past, the family went to church. Let us get our spiritual house in order, and all will be well with our souls. I am well aware that there has been new thinking as it relates to principles of the Bible but one thing is certain that the fundamental principles of the Bible have served us well. We must believe and look up to a supreme being that has authority over us.
One of the priority areas for this new Government should be tackling crime. Crime is on the increase. What standards do we employ to have persons deviate from crime? The Ten Commandments in the Bible point to how we should conduct ourselves in this life. In today’s world, persons have gotten brave and no longer suffer from fear of Yahweh. We have noted recently in the U. S. A. that even persons who claim to be Evangelicals have attacked Capitol Hill and sought to hang Vice President Pence. What is happening in our world? How much worse can the situation get? These are the acts of men that tell me that Yahweh is currently re-establishing his presence on earth, and selecting men and women who fear him to execute the task of letting his people go, so that they can enjoy what has been prepared for them – abundant living.
To all the persons of Faith including those who have the gift of PRAYER and are called to pray, aka as Prayer Warriors, their work has just begun. We are called in this present time to pray without ceasing. I invite you to visit my Facebook Group “The Bible Challenge” which was launched on August 21, 2016, and join members in prayer and reading of the Holy Scriptures.
Let us continue to give thanks, and pray that the new government will serve Yahweh’s people in a manner that will bring glory and honour to his name.
