John 8: 31-32 says, “Then Jesus said to those Jews who believed Him, “If you abide in My word, you are My disciples indeed.  And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”


We are living in world where everybody wants to be free to do whatever they want.  In the recent US Elections liberals have said they at free to do whatever they want with their own bodies – abortions, sex changes etc. Many have said that they are free to live any life they choose – sexual immorality etc., and many Christians voted for that and support it.


When someone becomes a Christian, he/she then becomes free from his/her old slave master and Jesus has bought him/her back from sin.  Once Jesus owns you, He becomes your Master and you become slaves to righteousness.  No one can have two masters.  You are either a slave to sin or a slave to righteousness.


In pursuing freedom or what freedom truly is, many lose their freedom and end up in bondage.  It all started in the Garden of Eden when God gave Adam and Eve everything they could ever possibly want or need.  They were free, but God gave them one instruction – do not eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil.  That was an instruction requiring obedience.  But Satan convinced them that they are not free and that they should not obey that instruction so they can be truly free.  In other words, don’t listen to God, do what you feel like doing and then is when you are truly free.


Their act of disobedience caused them to lose their freedom and as such, their obedience to the alternate instruction caused them to become slaves to sin.


There is no organization that does not have rules and guidelines, but the guidelines must be Scriptural/


Romans 6 specifically teaches us about being slaves to sin versus being slaves to righteousness.  In Paul’s response to the supposition that Grace encourages or permits sin, he uses the analogy of slavery to combat a casual attitude toward sin and issues a stern warning on the consequences of yielding to sin.  A person is a slave of that to which he gives obedience or that which he recognizes as his master.  If he obeys the command of sin, then sin is his master and he is moving in the direction of eternal death.  If he obeys the command of righteousness, then righteousness is his master and he experiences true life.  Paul encourages those who were once slaves of sin to renounce it and instead become slaves of righteousness if they want to be truly free.


Holiness leads to freedom.  Sin is a slave-driving task master that demands total commitment and ultimate death.  No Christian can have two bosses, hence when one becomes a Christian, we must follow what our new slave master Jesus Christ instructs us to do.  We cannot be Christians while living the life of the world.  (Romans 6: 22)


John 8 also teaches us that if we are truly disciples of Jesus then we must abide by the Word of God.  The Word of God is hat helps us to maintain our freedom.  Most Christians don’t read the word, so how can they truly be free?  Every Christian should read John 8: 35 – 36, “And a slave does not abide in the house forever, but a son abides forever. Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.” 


The word ‘son’ here has nothing to do with gender – it has everything to do with your relationship with God the Father.  The Jews were saying at that time that they were free because they were children of Abraham, but Jesus was saying that if you reject the Son of God, then you have no moral relationship with the Father.  Likewise, many Christians say they are Christians, yet they refuse to abide by God’s Word and principles – the very God they say they serve.  They prefer to get the benefits of one who serves God while abiding by the instructions of the world. Party and fornicate all week – go barhopping, yoke themselves to whomever they choose, choose any shepherd they feel like on any given day, whatever they feel like doing, wherever and however and with whomever they choose – ignoring the principles of God or trying to merge His Word and Principles with the world’s views and opinions of God and His Word.  This cannot be so.  John 8: 42 – 44 reminds us “Jesus said to them, “If God were your Father, you would love Me, for I proceeded forth and came from God; nor have I come of Myself, but He sent Me. Why do you not understand My speech? Because you are not able to listen to My word.  You areXDS of your father the devil, and the desires of your father you want to do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and does not stand in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from his own resources, for he is a liar and the father of it.”


Romans 8: 14 shows us that only those who are led by the Spirit are the sons of God.  What spirit is leading you?


Romans 8: 19 -21 says, “For the earnest expectation of the creation eagerly waits for the revealing of the sons of God. For the creation was subjected to futility, not willingly, but because of Him who subjected it in hope; because the creation itself also will be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.”


Many in the prophetic circle often misquote this Scripture.  We cannot truly impact the earth unless we are walking in HOLINESS!  We are slaves to righteousness.  God owns us totally.  Sons walk in obedience.  Sons are free from sin.  Some Christians can’t even follow simple instructions.  When we walk in holiness we will see the manifestation in the environment so we won’t even have to point out global warming because sin affects all areas.


Truth be told, the world has the wrong concept of what freedom is and it is impeding us from truly experiencing genuine freedom – the kind that can only come from God.


I am a slave to righteousness and Jesus is my Master because He paid the ransom for me and bought me back.

Many times in the business arena and in the Church, leadership will get frustrated, and companies and churches struggle at times because they are unable to service those within. Until you identify who you are called to and where your greatest support lies, who supports your business/church you will not move forward.

Luke 4: 18 – 19, says, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, because He has anointed Me to preach the gospel to the poor; He has sent Me to heal the brokenhearted,To proclaim liberty to the captives and recovery of sight to the blind, To set at liberty those who are oppressed; To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord.” My calling is to the poor in spirit, poor in finance, to set the captives free and to bring healing to the brokenhearted and recovery of sight to those who are blind spiritually and physically. So if you are a prostitute, if you messed up, if you are a misfit, if you are rejected, or if you are a sinner or you are unrighteous – WELCOME!

I am not called to righteous people, nor religious people, nor to those who have already arrived. Paul was called to the Gentiles so God gave him the grace to deal with the Gentiles. He was set apart (Romans 1: 1 – 7) Many leaders – whether business or church – are spending too much time focusing on the wrong areas. Some even get disheartened and discouraged when certain people within the society don’t accept them. You will not be accepted by everyone in the society it is not Scriptural. The Pharisees did not accept Him and neither did His own city/town.

When God gives you an assignment, keep going, keep doing good! Give hope to people! Stop moping and groping and focusing on those who criticize you nor accept you. Do an analysis and see who your biggest supporters are and focus on them; those who genuinely help you. Who are your biggest clients? Who always supports your work no matter what? Those who are called to you will follow you. Recognize that you are not called to everybody. Companies fall when they change their mandate.

I once worked with a very large company that was doing very well and when they began to change their focus and mandate, that is when the company started to shake and it has not been the same since. Acknowledge and embrace your difference and run with it. Many churches are diverting from the mandate – even transforming to attract a certain set of people; or doing things which are not Scriptural. Now the many churches are becoming a laughing stock. Jesus did not try to fit in at all. Stick to your mandate despite the challenges. Know your clientele know your sheep.

Many times the poor are more appreciative of the work you do and the sacrifices made and they need your difference. Many Pastors today say they are called to the rich, but the rich don’t truly need God until they become poor.

Encouragement And Honor Will Increase Production


It doesn’t matter what field or profession you are in – whether you are an entrepreneur, a doctor, teacher, nurse, store clerk or politicians, head of state – we all need encouragement.

Oftentimes, people want others to feel as if they are not making a difference, whether it is in your personal life, job or within the nation. Regular encouragement will refresh, renew and refocus a person to continue to do the task that you are called to do.

There are many ways to encourage and honour someone. The first thing we must each learn to do is to encourage ourselves. Problems will arise – financial, marital, economic, health or national problems, but according to I Samuel 30, we must encourage ourselves in the Lord as David did!

David was facing familial and national problems. There was distress from every direction and fear consumed the people. They were ready to stone their leaders. But David strengthened himself in God. He realised that faith was his title/deed, and his faith in Almighty God was so lifted that it removed the mountains and brought the solution for him to recover all. Further to that, it brought spoils – great financial wealth – that would help him and his entire organisation and administration. Oftentimes, adversity comes to bring us back to our original focus and foundation.

There are many things we can do to encourage and honour someone on a daily basis. Each person needs it – it brings increase to your organisation, your nation and to your family.

Power, gifts and resources are tools given to us to motivate someone each day; and the things that we have been through in life and have overcome, we can use it to encourage and honour someone else who needs it! Seeing your life being an impact on the lives of others and bring change gives encouragement.

Regardless of the negative things people say about you, there must be some good that you have done in your life!

Honour is a major part of encouragement. The main fact that certain blessings and wealth cannot be transferred to individuals is as a result of a lack of honour. Abraham, one of the wealthiest men in the Bible, learnt the key of honouring – he knew how important honour was as a key to access and promotion in any situation.

He honoured God, the king and his own earthly father. As a result, great blessings, favour and wealth were given to him.

Exodus 20:12 reminds us that honour increases life. No nation will be able to turn until they learn to honour!
How To Encourage And Honor
Honor God by putting Him first in all things; in worship, in the giving of our tithes, offerings, time and resources! Proverbs 3:9-10 show us that honor encourages God, and God in turn encourages us through blessings, increase, wealth and prosperity.

Honour your staff and bosses through tangible rewards. I Peter 2:17 reminds us to, “Honour all men, love the

brotherhood, fear God and honour the king.” This means that honour brings access! Plaques, trophies and even a certificate can encourage and motivate an individual and increase production. Remember that our greatest assets are people – not hardware and software.

Additionally, employ the use of money when honouring your staff! Money will encourage a person – there is nothing wrong with money! Money is a legal tender that deals with our basic and daily needs; the lack of money can cause great distress and increase your medical expenses.

Honour your wife/husband by doing things for and with them that allow them to recognise that their value is greater to you than any material thing. Honour in your marital relationship increases its value and never depreciates!

I take this opportunity to honor God who has given us life, as well as the management and staff of the The Gleaner Company for the hard work they do to bring The Gleaner into the daily lives of its readers. Finally, I honor you, the readers of this column, for your continued support.

Many times people say they have a great calling on their lives, but they refuse to submit to a shepherd.  Some think they don’t need any, while others – when they are corrected, they adopt another shepherd.  Yet there are others who allow other sheep to lead them.


Let us understand that sheep and shepherd are two different things.  Shepherd drive or lead the sheep, not the other way around.  If sheep don’t want to be led by a particular shepherd, Christianity is the wrong faith for them.


Every sheep needs a shepherd:


  1. To lead them in green pastures
  2. To shear them – prepare them for service to God
  3. To bring them fresh water and fresh grass in other words lead them into prosperity
  4. To protect them from wild animals and stray dogs (hirelings, wolves, false prophets, false teachers
  5. To anoint them with fresh oil – new anointing, prosperity and blessing
  6. To prevent them from spiritual blindness and spiritual deafness
  7. To guide and nurture them to ensure that they are walking in the right direction (Sheep tend to make silly decisions – walking with their heads down)


Oftentimes sheep are troubled by flies around the nose and ears – always attacking the head.  Then they lay their eggs on the damp of the mucus membranes (soft, weak areas) and if that connection is successful, the eggs hatch and turn into worms which crawls into the ears and noses of the sheep.  So it cuts off their hearing and their discernment. Then it leads to blindness.  This is why so many sheep have been swaying by every wind of doctrine and are following false shepherds.


Psalm 23 speaks clearly of the shepherd’s role, not only of the Chief Shepherd, but is an example of what all true shepherds should be. When the sheep goes astray, the shepherd has to anoint their heads with oil.  This will bring instant change and instantly kill all the worms and the insects that were buried in the heads of the sheep – false doctrines included; which will bring peace, quietness and healing.


The Good Shepherd will be instructed by the Holy Spirit on what to feed the sheep.  Most sheep tend to stray into different pastures looking for different foods to eat.  They oftentimes get diarrhea, foot rot disease and many other deadly illnesses.  This is why each sheep must have one shepherd.


The Shepherd Role Is Not Easy


The shepherd does not have an easy role, as it can be extremely painful and dangerous.  They are exposed to the following on a daily basis to keep the sheep:


  1. Stray dogs let in by the sheep
  2. Hirelings
  3. Wolves
  4. Mountain lions
  5. Other stray sheep who have been infected and who have been let in by the sheep themselves.
  6. Social Network
  7. Mainstream Media


There are many titles in the Bible, but, ‘Shepherd’ is the least used and the least understood.  A person can be ordained as a Pastor but the/she is not a shepherd.  In this time, where most of the sheep are in tune with Social Media, and all kinds of distractions, the shepherd’s role has become more dangerous because they are leading the sheep out by day and in by night.


Recognize that there is a difference between a Priest and a Shepherd.   The shepherd goes beyond pulpit duties.  When God is going to bring change to a church or a nation He raises up leaders with a shepherd’s heart.  Look at Numbers 27: 15 – 23. Eleazar was the Priest, but God did not choose him to be the Shepherd.  Only those with a shepherd’s heart will bring maturity and stability to the sheep or to a nation.


What is seen in the nation with the breaking down of families, the abuse and destruction of children, the political and economic instability and so on, is a reflection of the breakdown in the Church, Politics & Governments and Business Sector.  Shepherding is not confined only to the Church, but also applies to Nations as well.  Thus, there are Political Shepherds, Business Shepherds and it is imperative for us to recognize that. David also was a good shepherd who became a good king.


We MUST pray for good shepherds to arise and bring change locally, globally and in the Church. Surprisingly, when a shepherd falls, most people curse them and never forgive them. But we must remember that shepherds are Christ’s sheep.  When a sheep falls, oftentimes people are silent and nobody says anything.  We must be careful about how we treat shepherds or about what we utter against them; and when God forgives them, who is man to condemn them?


Understand that one cannot go from poverty to prosperity without their shepherd.

High Cost Ignoring Dreams And Visions

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Job 33: 14-18 says

“For God may speak in one way, or in another, yet man does not perceive it. In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls upon men, while slumbering on their beds, then He opens the ears of men, and seals their instruction. In order to turn man from his deed, and conceal pride from man, he keeps back his soul from the Pit, and his life from perishing by the sword.”

These are wise words from a biblical billionaire, in terms of God’s communication with man through dreams and visions. Many times, you will read in the various publications stories of what happens when adversity strikes a family; some will say that they saw it in a dream or vision but they didn’t take it seriously. It tells us that God is always communicating with man to avoid adversity of some kind and to put us on the right path. Oftentimes, many in the media, politics, business and in the academic arena will ridicule the very idea of someone saying that God spoke or speaks to them in dreams and visions, and even quote medical terms to explain the persons ‘condition’ and ridicule them.

If many were paying attention to their dreams and visions, many would never suffer certain defeat and many other family members would be alive today had they heeded the dreams they received. Can you imagine the medical and economic breakthroughs we could have had if only some people would pay attention to their dreams and visions?

God has been speaking more than ever in this season, and even politicians (past and present), businessmen and members of the media and security forces have been experiencing such. It is their duty to document their dreams and visions if they don’t understand them and seek holy man and women of God who are gifted in interpreting dreams and visions, because it may very well determine your life, your administration and your advisers, and even reveal wrong motives. So don’t ignore or ridicule your helper, office attendant or neighbour when they get a dream or vision. Don’t be so arrogant that you would say, ‘If God wanted to talk to me, He would talk to me Himself’.

God wants a coming together of scientists, academia, politicians and His anointed servants – not theologians who don’t believe in dreams and visions – to come together and solve global problems. God is speaking, but we need to listen.

A dream is what you see when you are asleep (Genesis 37: 5-8; Joel 2: 28). A vision is what the Lord shows you when you are awake. For some, they see something like a television screen before them and the different things playing out on it. Some may get ideas. Some even see things that are about to happen, even security-wise (II Kings 6). There are many who also have spiritual gifts of word of knowledge and word of wisdom (I Corinthians 12). Please take note, they neither have a medical condition nor a mental problem – and no, they did not eat late.

In Ezekiel 1-3 and Revelation 1: 9-10, we see there that they had open visions which brought hope and deliverance even when a person is in captivity, regardless of the market conditions and the political climate that exists. He often used dreams and visions to encourage them and show them the outcome of current conditions.

Jacob, who himself got dreams and visions, was the first one to disbelieve his own son’s dreams and visions, and this is exactly how many people are today. (Genesis 28: 12-14 & Genesis 37)

Signs And Symbols

God speaks to us in signs and symbols, and this is very important. Some people see things like:

– Broken tooth/teeth

– Water (Clean or dirty)

– Raven

– Broom and sweeping

– Bicycle and bridge

– Numbers

– Volcano

– Airports and aeroplane

– Dragon

– Dog/cat

– Bull & calf

They all have meanings – not for the purpose of gambling, but for the purposes of problem-solving and life-saving.

As stated in Job 33: 14-18, it carries six prophetic purposes.

– Provides God’s answers to our question.

– Instructs us in the things of God.

– Warns us of unseen danger.

– Guides us away from wrongdoings.

– Keeps us from pride.

– Saves our lives.

So always sleep with a book and a pen near to you and record your dreams and visions. Get the interpretation and pray against any negative occurrence that might happen.

Old Prophet, Young Prophet

Oftentimes there are Scriptures that are popular but often misunderstood. One such Scripture is I Kings 13 – Young Prophet, Old Prophet. Those who are immature or misinformed tend to quickly turn to this Scripture when they don’t want to submit and are walking in disobedience. They often try to use this Scripture in the context of age citing that they are the young ones that the Lord is working with now and so they don’t have to obey those before them including their shepherd. In no respect was this Scripture speaking about age or seniority.

In this Scripture – I Kings 13 – the Lord was speaking about the lifestyle of a prophet, and it meant that an ‘old prophet’ was one who was stuck in the old ways – and one who has fallen into apostasy; one who compromised the word of God for material and other gain. It meant that an old prophet was one who had gone back to their old lifestyle and was no longer walking in truth. It also meant that they were no longer walking in the fruit of the spirit, but were instead walking in the flesh. Thus, that prophet backslid but still functioned in his/her authority like Balaam, and those who were on Jezebel’s payroll.

The ‘young prophet’ referred to one who walked in truth, holiness and righteousness regardless of the cost. They had a holy lifestyle nor tell people what they wanted to hear. Micaiah (I Kings 22) is one example of the Young Prophet and so is Jeremiah.

So, it is possible to be young in the faith and even young in age and still be an Old Prophet if your lifestyle does not line up with the Word of God. Whenever a person is not walking in the truth, God refers to them as old, and we must always remain Young! This is why as Christians, we can’t mix or fellowship with other Christians who are not walking in the truth or holiness. The word even says we are not even supposed to eat (network or affiliate) with them. (I Corinthians 5)


Many time people will say they are walking in favor; but favor is something that one has to maintain true Obedience (Deuteronomy 28: 1 – 14) True obedience and genuine submission to Godly authority. (Luke 2: 49 – 52) Hence favor – like faith – has a measure. It increases as we continue to walk in God’s perfect will. Favor also has to do with those to whom you submit and those you serve. For example, Ruth and Naomi, Elisha and Elijah, Jacob and Laban. Last year’s favor cannot deal with this year’s issues So when a person continually walks in disobedience, then that grace and favor will cease to exist and then you will get a true revelation of what favor is all about.

Many times, people say that they are called and chosen by God, but remember that the word says that many are called and few are chosen. So, to be chosen, a person must be able to pass the tests in the timing of God. Of the 32,000 that were called, less than 1% passed the tests; and these tests were simple instructions and required attention to detail and vigilance as well as focus on the kingdom. There must be a steadfast focus on the Kingdom!

So, while many say that they are called and chosen and can’t even submit to the leadership of a good mentor, they need to think again. Would the Lord give authority to the ones who won’t don’t or refuse to submit to authority?

God’s criteria for using someone within the Kingdom to carry out His will and purpose is higher and He will not change His word to fit into our desire rather than His will.

We have come to the close of the year and are on the verge of a new one, and we need now to give God thanks despite the challenges we have faced in 2016.

Many have gone through pain, delay, disappointment and even loss of loved ones, but we must remain grateful to the One Who created us all. Many from the start of the year made resolutions; some we gained, some we lost. Each of us has our season that we go through and sometimes these seasons come to strengthen our faith and to change our focus and priority. The time has come for us to evaluate our list – check off what was accomplished, what was not and formulate a new list of goals for the year ahead.

Believe by faith that for those things that did not come to pass in 2016, there is an opportunity for them to happen in 2017. God is faithful and HE always keeps His promises. It is us as human beings that have the tendency to not keep our promises. When we are reviewing our 2016, let us do an honest evaluation and identification of our shortfalls.

We need to ask, ‘What are the shortfalls and what can we do differently to bring change?’

In order to bring change, we first must change. Many times, people make resolutions and are unwilling to change although they need a change! ‘Was I a good steward of the little with which God entrusted me?’ ‘Did I manage my money and time properly?’ ‘Did I use the gifts and talents God has given me to bring positive change to someone else’s life?’ ‘Did I volunteer to help my community?’ ‘Did I go to the House of the Lord faithfully this year?’ ‘Was God first in my life; did I spend enough time with Him this year?’ ‘After I got that new job/promotion, did I give God thanks?’ What were the things that ‘stressed you out’ in 2016? What areas were/Who was your greatest focus?
Moving Forward

Going forward we need to now change our focus:

  • We must manage our time even better
  • We need to invest in those people who make us happy
  • We need to cut off those that suck your energy without valuing our time
  • We need to place a value on ourselves and set the value standard for those around us
  • We need to build ourselves an inner circle of good strong supporters

Then pray and ask the Lord to reveal to you the Times and Seasons and what needs to be done in 2017. Ask Him what your focus for the year ahead must be and we have to change our focus toward that. Oftentimes we believe that the year we enter will be like the year we are leaving behind and it is not so. For some things to change there must be the internal change to receive the external changes. For example, you may need your finance to increase, your healing and your relationship within your family to change, but your answer may lie in your committing yourself to Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior. Maybe we also have to change the way we eat and maintain it so that we can have a better quality of life. Some will need to stop ‘shacking up’, because our bodies are the temple of the Lord.

There needs to be greater focus on the children and their welfare and education; who influences them, who is their focus, what are their values, what are they watching. As parents, we MUST manage. It is not the responsibility of the Government to manage our children it is ours.

Stop unnecessary spending, God wants each person to own a debt-free house.

Seek God first in 2017, not the Social Media and the opinions shared there. It is not FOX News, CNN, TVJ, CVM or Market Conditions that should be the determining factors for our decision-making. Judge all things to see whether or not it lines up with what God is saying to you.

Never try to change or appease anyone, only God can do that. Please God and God will please the people.

The voices with which you surround yourself will determine your success in 2017. There are many voices out there and many ‘truths’ out there, but only one real Truth. Many ways, but only one is the right way.

A Happy New Year to all.

Climate Change And God

Re-post  December 7, 2015

“You alone are the Lord; you have made heaven, the heaven of heavens, with all their host, the earth and everything on it, the seas and all that is in them, and you preserve them all. The host of heaven worships you.” (Nehemiah 9: 6)

As we read this Scripture, we (as well as the 150 countries that gathered in Paris recently), must realize that there can be no debate or discussion on climate change without including God.

The meetings were held in an effort to find a workable plan to stave off global catastrophe. When we change – when mankind chooses to change their way of thinking and of operating, then we will not have to worry about climate change.

Before the fall of man, the original order of man’s environment on earth must be distinguished from what it became following the impact of man’s fall. The curse and the eventual deluge; the agricultural, zoological, geological and meteorological disharmony to which creation has been subjected, must not be attributed to God who gave us a perfect earth. It is man’s sin that has brought about what man refers to as climate change.

Global leaders who want to have a serious discussion about and find solutions to climate change, must have the Bible as a guide, going all the way back to Genesis to see how man’s actions affect the globe.


Climate change does not only affect mankind. It affects the earth, the environment, the animals and the sea. The rebellion of man against God and the push to have a godless society is a greater threat than climate change.

Man’s rebellion in times past, brought about a great flood. It also caused a permanent change in weather activity called rain. Prior to rain, there was only mist and dew. Furthermore, the appearance of the rainbow is a symbol that God will not destroy the entire earth again by flood. (Genesis 9: 11 – 13; Genesis 8: 22)

The Solution Is Jesus

Isaiah 24: 5 – 6 clearly outlines what things can defile the earth and cause climate change. It speaks about violating spiritual laws which can bring defilement within the earth – including rebellion against God, war, injustice, breaking God’s covenant, negative speech, perverted and defiling movies and music, legislating God out of schools, politics, government. Then you will begin to see floods, landslides, heatwaves, earthquakes and the rivers either drying up or taking back their old courses.

Eye, ear and skin diseases will resurface and worsen. (Jeremiah 2: 17) Man’s ways defile the very economy of a nation. It stops growth and prosperity.

Mismanagement and unfair distribution of the earth’s resources – gold, silver and so on – through greed, as well as the mistreatment of the poor, all contribute to climate change significantly and this is what they should be discussing and making active efforts to change.

Believe it or not, even our very negative words affect and can destroy the earth. (Hebrews 11; Proverbs 18: 22)


Trees are being cut down unnecessarily. The reef is being disrupted, unnecessary dredging is taking place, all under the guise of economic development. Many countries are ignoring

regulations which are affecting environmental safety. Toxic waste is continually being dumped into the sea. Nuclear weapons testing and other dangerous tests by world powers are now destroying our marine life.

Our seafood and sea water are no longer safe. If the minority continues to control the wealth and things continue as they are, then we will further destroy the very thing that God gave man to manage. (Genesis 1: 26; Genesis 2: 15)

The Bible is our God-given operational manual to manage earthly affairs. Everything is in it, including how to avoid certain catastrophes. Even our agriculture has suffered. Let us recognize that everything is connected; and as such, Leviticus 25: 3 – 5, reminds us that a day is given for man to rest, so even the earth must rest. There needs to be a global regulatory body to police scientists and developers as well as undersea activities including certain blasting and digging. So much is being destroyed under the banner of science and econ-omic development – including valuable watershed areas. Some of the fertilizers are destroying the earth.

Many nations seek to remove what they view as religion from their grand plans regarding the environment. However, they must recognize that excluding God and His instructions regarding the management of the resources of which He has given us charge over, will come back to haunt us in no uncertain terms and we will all have to face it again if it is not resolved.
