12. Blessed is the nation whose God is
the LORD; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.
word blessed in the Hebrew is:
'esher, eh'-sher; which means Happy
/ happiness; and is interpreted / translated empowered to prosper.
to prosper is the nation whose God
('elohiym, el-o-heem') is the Lord
and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance.
mere existence of the Israel the nation, instilled fear and envy in other
nations; because of the God they served and worship. Whenever Israel turned its
back to God and walked in disobedience to His commandments, they became vulnerable
to other nations and the attacks of the devil.
Bahamas can be liken to Israel as we are the envy of the entire world; this
nation (The Bahamas) has been founded upon Godly principles. Other nations saw
and came to understand that the Bahamas is a blessed nation and they’re
travelling from far and wide to partake in the blessings of the Bahamas.
the children of Israel, we; Bahamians have allowed and accepted the customs and
foreign gods of the nations that we’ve welcomed and cut covenant with. Throughout the history of Israel, God warned
the children of Israel not to make covenant with their surrounding nations and
not to go after other gods / their gods (
Exodus.20:3 – Hosea.3:1).
we are today, the Bahamas; despite all of God’s blessings upon this nation, our
educated, spiritually blind / dead leaders went ahead and made many covenants /
treaties with other nations and organizations that adhere not to principles and
commands of God. For financial gain and
favors from these nations and organizations we’ve chosen to compromise our
Godly principles, and accept the gods and customs of various nations.
a nation, our leaders (Political & Church) has failed miserably in leading
/ directing, and being the example for the people to follow in regards to faithfully
obeying the word of God. The love of
money has blindly driven our leaders into covenant relationship with other nations
and organizations that care not for the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.
warned the children of Israel against doing exactly that which we (The Bahamas)
have done and is yet now doing as a nation; signing treaties and making covenant
with nations that doesn’t worship him.
14. Ye shall not go after other gods, of the gods
of the people which are round about you;
15. (For the LORD thy God is a jealous
God among you) lest the anger of the LORD thy God be kindled against thee, and
destroy thee from off the face of the earth.
it not strange that as a so-called Christian nation (The Bahamas), our crime
and murder rate is at an all time high and increases every year; as our young
men / male seed are being wiped from the face of the earth everyday via murders
beautiful as the Bahamas might be ( Beaches, Sun, Sand and Sea) our land is very
sick, the murders and other serious crimes speaks clearly of the same; meanwhile,
our arrogant leaders parades around as if everything is alright.
healing for our sick land / Nation is as such:
14. If my people, which are called by my name,
shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked
ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal
not as if we (Bahamians) don’t know what to do; it’s not as if we’ve never
heard of the one true God, the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. Yet, instead of
humbling ourselves; we (especially leadership) would continually walk and
operate in the spirit of pride and arrogance. As you’re reading this article, it’s time for
you; each of us to sincerely make the following declaration as Joshua did.
15. And if it seem evil unto you to serve the
LORD, choose you this day whom ye will serve; whether the gods which your
fathers served that were on the other side of the flood, or the gods of the
Amorites, in whose land ye dwell: but as for me and my house, we will serve the
Bahamas is truly a blessed land; the criterion for participating in the God
ordained / generation lasting, blessings of our land is as follows.
19. If ye be willing and obedient, ye shall eat
the good of the land:
willing and obedient to God’s word / commandments and his blessings will
literally run you down and overtake you.
No religion, no hype, just an obedient relationship with Father Yahweh.
