For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro
throughout the whole earth, to show himself strong in the behalf of them whose
heart is perfect toward him.
is yet another interesting time / season in the history of the Bahamas; it’s
the Political Season. This season, combined with the existent Religious way of
life / mind-set presents a classic case of a people who have mastered the art
of leaning to their own understanding.
can remember quite vividly during weeks / days heading into the 2007, General
Election where Religious Leaders were all prophesying to the then Prime
Minister, The Right Honorable Perry G. Christie of how God has said that he
(Mr. Christie) and the P.L.P. was going to win the general election.
were many prayer breakfast held, lots of prophet-lying going on as the so-called
anointed Apostles, Bishops, Doctors, Pastors all took the opportunity to show
forth their spiritual insight in declaring futile prophetic words to the then
we are today, five years later; heading into another general election. Today there
is a slight change among the Spiritually Lost Religious Leaders, in that they’re
not as public prophet-lying the outcome of this election as they did in 2007;
but make no mistake they’re not missing in action. They’re playing their role
from the pulpits and at various political rallies, etc.
the P.L.P. and the F.N.M. really has nothing to fear as it relates to today’s
religious church being the uncompromised representative of God’s kingdom here
in the Bahamas. As today’s church leaders are on a total different run /
assignment, than that of God (Yahweh).
it’s all about the Mand-of God writing his book/s, building his dynasty /
kingdom and getting on The Word Network or T.B.N. to promote himself and his
agenda. Whiles the struggling church members are made to feel guilty if they’re
not able to sow financial seeds into the life of their leaders.
the nation of Israel back then during the days of King Asa; The Bahamas is at a
cross road where all sorts of ungodly acts are taking place in the land.
Murders, bloodshed and wars are common occurrences among the people; wicked and
corrupt practices are the ways of life especially for the leaders (Political,
Religious & Civic).
the Bahamas, The Elite is rewarded for corrupt practices / behavior while the
common man is brought to shame and open disgrace at the mere suspicion of
corruption. The citizens has nobody to defend their course as the legal system
is filled with shady Lawyers that further takes advantage of those accused.
the church is in no position to stand up and boldly cry out on the behalf of
those that being unjustly treated by any means; due to the fact that the Church
Leaders are all given to looking after their own interest.
It’s like playing Russian roulette with today’s
Religious Leaders, it depends on which Political Party is governing the country
at the time for a religious leader to step forth and try to help the
downtrodden; as the divided church is also heavily involved in politics. The P.L.P.
has one side of the church, and the F.N.M. has the other side; spiritually
these are some dark days in the history of the Bahamas.
various communities where the average citizen lives (Over the Hill) there are countless
numbers of churches / different denominations; and yet it’s in these
communities where murders and other social ills are at an all time high. Many of
the church leaders don’t reside in these communities where most of their
members live; it’s just that their place of doing business / their churches are
in these communities, and their presence is primarily of gathering finances /
fleecing of the flock.
The Apostle, the
Bishop, the Doctor, the Pastor, etc; of these churches resides in other
exclusive / gated communities; where members of their churches need permission
it’s true, as is stated that:
“Everything rises and falls upon leadership”
then as the Bahamas is falling apart (Murders, bloodshed, corruption,
spiritual wickedness in high places, the deterioration of family and family
values, etc;) one need not be a rocket scientist, a Harvard scholar or a
Theologian to conclude that as a nation, the Bahamas is suffering from the lack
of Godly leadership.
of the most quoted passages of scripture verse among the Bahamian people is
Where there is no vision, the
like to remind folks that the above scripture doesn’t say
“Where there is no vision, the
leaders perish:” No, it says that
“The people perish”
misconception of the Church and State alignment has given way to the enemy /
Satan and his kingdom of darkness having such a stronghold here in the Bahamas.
As many leading / influential church leaders have compromised their walk with
God, in order to walk with the State and to be recipients of the State’s
hand-outs (financial grants, lands and various other trinkets). Therefore the State,
the Government / Prime Minister pays or gives very little attention to the
voice of today’s compromised church / church leaders.
there’s ever a time that the State needs to, and is looking forward to hearing
from God (Yahweh) that time is now; but again prominent religious leaders through
their compromising traditions has made the church, and the word of God of none
Making the word of God of none effect through
your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye.
God (Yahweh) is rising up some true, uncompromising prophets that will boldly
declare his unadulterated word; despite the many oppositions, test and trials
they have to endure. Even if and when the State takes a negative position
against them because of their declaration; these prophets will not compromise.
prophet / seer Hanani, in
2Chron.16:1-10. Boldly declared the
word of God even to the point of being cast into prison by the State.
For the eyes of the LORD run to and
fro throughout the whole earth, to show himself strong in the behalf of them
whose heart is perfect toward him. Herein thou hast done foolishly: therefore
from henceforth thou shalt have wars.
Then Asa was wroth with the seer, and put him
in a prison house; for he was in a rage with him because of this thing. And Asa
oppressed some of the people the same time.
"For the eyes of the LORD move to and
fro throughout the earth that He may strongly support those whose heart is
completely His. You have acted foolishly in this. Indeed, from now on you will
surely have wars."
Then Asa was angry with the seer and put him
in prison, for he was enraged at him for this. And Asa oppressed some of the
people at the same time.
is looking for you, to show himself strong on your behalf:
