Married People Should Have More Sex

 

God has given us the gift of sex for procreation, emotional joy and physical fulfillment of sexual union. Sexual union is reserved for married people and must be enjoyed regularly in that union so that couples can also avoid temptation. It must be maintained in wholeness through faithfulness and purity of heart, discipline of the eyes and consecration of the body (1 Corinthians 7: 3-5; Proverbs 5:15-20; Job 31:1; Genesis 2:24).

It is critical for Christians to pray more for each married couple to have a healthy sexual life, especially in light of all the attacks that are launched daily against married couples and their sexual lives – including the promotion and sale of artificial penises and vaginas, robots, as well as masturbation and prostitution.

Let it be clear that marriage is consent for having sex, and it is scriptural. Withholding sex will only bring more divorces, more masturbation and more rape. Ultimately, it will stop Godly offspring from coming forth. It is an attack on the Church and marriages, and the enemy is after the mystery of Christ and the Church (Ephesians 5:32).

Change Strategy

The Church has to change its strategy. Instead of fighting within, focus on the spiritual warfare that is taking place against it. We are up against marine spirits that are unleashed on the people, and very shortly, there will be laws to make fornication, adultery and what we know to be indecent exposure, legal. In fact, it has already begun.

The book of Solomon clearly shows strategies for married couples regarding sex. Man’s deepest need is to experience the oneness of authentic love, in a dependable relationship.

The Songs of Solomon depict a woman as an enclosed, private, protected garden for royal use, into which she invites her beloved to enter. Never withhold sex from your spouse (Songs 4:9 & 5:1). God made the breasts and the lips to satisfy. More kissing is needed between married couples.

Honey, milk, wine are used as comparison for kissing – and they are all good for the body. Something happens when married couples kiss. It brings healing and deliverance. Most married people no longer kiss (Songs 7:7-8).

The book also speaks to us about the different fruits and drinks a person should use to add spice to the marriage relationship.

Both husband and wife should compliment each other on a daily basis (Songs of Solomon 4: 16). Always remember that this is also a Promised Land and a great investment that God has given you.

Wedded couples must fight fatigue
Many times, married couples experience attacks such as fatigue when they want to engage in sex, and it is time for them to fight back; to break every attack upon their lives.

God wants each and every one to enjoy sex so that there is no room for adultery. Adultery allows a person to lose his/her authority. So it is critical to fight for your sex life and have sex regularly.

The book of Solomon also outlines the different perfumes and oils, blended beverages, the apples and raisins that can be used. Washing each other’s feet, a nice massage, manicure and/or pedicure can do wonders. Don’t dress at home as if you are at church services. A little purple in the hair and a few hair extensions don’t hurt (Songs of Solomon 7: 5).

There needs to be openness and good communication to deal with the happenings that are taking place today. The world is supposed to look on, wanting to be married. So married people can’t just sit by while the world is enjoying sex more than they are enjoying it. Withholding sex or becoming complacent in your marriage will bring disaster.

Refuse and abstain from any sexual encounters before marriage. Simply put, keep your virginity until the time of marriage and avoid any situations that arouse or awaken sexual desires and activities before marriage. God created sex to be wonderful and fulfilling, but only within the boundaries of marriage.

Wives, always declare Songs of Solomon 4: 16:

“Awake, O north wind, and come, O south! Blow upon my garden that its spices may flow out. Let my beloved come to his garden and eat its pleasant fruits.”

Husbands always declare Songs of Solomon 4: 9-11:

“You have ravished my heart, my sister, my spouse; you have ravished my heart with one look of your eyes, with one link of your necklace. How fair is your love, my sister, my spouse! How much better than wine is your love, and the scent of your perfumes than all spices! Your lips, O my spouse, drip as the honeycomb; honey and milk are under your tongue; …”

STAND IN THE GAP FOR THE NEXT GENERATION

 

 

 

Ezekiel 22: 30 says, “So I sought for a man among them who would make a wall, and stand in the gap before Me on behalf of the land, that I should not destroy it; but I found no one.”

 

Many times, people will criticize the Church and ask what they are doing about the negative happenings within a nation or the world.  But we must recognize that we are the Church – every profession – and we have a responsibility individually and collectively, to stand in the gap for nations.  We have become a nation of people that have become caught up in our own little issues/problems/situations forgetting that we also have a duty to each other and to our nation.   Some are so caught up in showing off their latest ‘self-improvement’ projects – who has the latest clothes or enhanced body parts – and when tragedy strikes then is when they get concerned.

 

When negative happenings begin – Murder, Rape and Famine and then Hopelessness sets in, it means that there is a break/breach within the spiritual walls of the nation. If someone breaks into a home, if the owner simply adds a burglar alarm without fixing the breach – the broken window/door – then their efforts are wasted.  Hence, God wants persons of every profession at every level to make themselves available to Him to be used to rebuild the walls – not the physical, but spiritual walls.  We need to ‘Stand in the Gap’.

 

Standing in the gap is a metaphor for committed intercession.  When there is a gap between man and God, someone needs to stand in and intercede so that God can repair the breach for us.  Hence we have a responsibility to first identify the breach in every profession and stand in.




 

When there is a breach in the walls everything comes in – anything takes place.  So if we are looking for restoration of the family, a good justice system, good governance and healing within a nation, then it is the responsibility of everyone to stand in the gap that the spiritual barriers will be rebuilt.  Regardless of the systems or laws put in place, no change will come if there is a gap in the wall.

 

 

Every Profession

In order to be effective, every profession knows its own terminologies and jargon and so, knows the precise words to use as opposed to the ordinary lay person who would not be as knowledgeable in that area.  For example, a lawyer knows the jargon and terms that he/she would use for certain matters, like ‘petition’, ‘counter-petition’ ‘recuse’, ‘abrogate’ so they could pray accordingly employing those terms that John Q. Public would not ordinarily know.  A person who deals with the economy of a nation need to stand in the gap for the things that of that industry that are affecting the nation – inflation, devaluation of the dollar, fiscal policies and so on.  They know the terminologies to use as they pray to stop the negative and ask for the increase of the positive.  Doctors would know the diseases that are plaguing the nation and would pray accordingly for them to stop using medical terminologies.  They would stand in the gap to minimize sicknesses and diseases that are eating away the nation – cancer, HIV, and others and that God will release medical breakthroughs to heal the nation.  Security forces also need to stand in the gap, they can’t simply focus on the physical, but also the spiritual aspect.




 

Interestingly, there is a name of God – a name ascribed to God which represents every one of these industries in our society.

 

Effective intercession brings change within a nation, but each person who stands in the gap must realize that we cannot operate the same way that we operated 20 years ago.  20 years ago, we did not have the technological revolution we now have and now as knowledge has increased, so has the technological warfare.  There are now games and software that are designed to pollute the minds of our youth and encourage them to commit crimes and do other things; and this is a breach.  So, we need people to rise up in the Information Technology arena to use the relevant jargon and references as they stand in the gap and fight for our young people and the future of the nation.

 

Recognize that the mind and eyes are direct links to the soul and as such whoever will control the mind and eyes will control the next generation.

 

So, it is the responsibility of every profession to stand in the gap that change will take place.

God and Common-Law Relationships

 

Re-post Friday, 19 August 2005

Simply put, a Common-law Relationship is a relationship where a man and a woman are living together in an intimate relationship – as a couple – without being married to each other. The term “common-law relationship” is just another nice way of saying, “pretending to be married while indulging in fornication”.

In most cases, this living arrangement produces children; hence a family is created; and at this point two main things occur: 1. Continual fornication 2. Children are born out of wedlock Both, of which, go against God’s instructions and ordinances.
What follows as a result in many cases is a cycle of poverty and oppression – which is a whole other topic altogether. As the years go by, numerous promises are made for marriage but they are never usually fulfilled.

Promises of marriage are made to the women year after year, and before you know it, five (5), even ten (10) years have passed and the family remains a common-law arrangement. Then the excuses and mindset become, “why pay for the milk when the cow is free?” or, “why ruin a good thing?” It is noteworthy that although it is not common, some women prefer to be in this type of relationship because of a fear of their marriage relationship ending in divorce.

Now what does the Bible say about fornication? The Bible tells us that fornication, murder, and sorcery are just the same and that if we do not repent we will not see the face of God and we will not have eternal life. Galatians 5: 20 – 21 says: “… idolatry, sorcery, hatred, contentions, jealousies, outbursts of wrath, selfish ambitions, dissensions, heresies, envy, murders, drunkenness, revelries, and the like; of which I tell you beforehand, just as I also told you in time past, that those who practice such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.” These are the works of the flesh.

In addition, Ephesians 5: 3 – 7 says: “But fornication and all uncleanness or covetousness, let it not even be named among you, as is fitting for saints; neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor coarse jesting, which are not fitting, but rather giving of thanks. For this you know, that no fornicator, unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, has any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and God. Let no one deceive you with empty words, for because of these things the wrath of God comes upon the sons of disobedience. Therefore, do not be partakers with them.” In addition to this verse 11 of the same scripture says that we should have no fellowship with these unfruitful works of darkness, but rather – expose them.

The Scriptures warn that when you are in this kind of relationship, you are sharing in the lifestyle of darkness; a lifestyle that will destroy you. Fornication opens you up to many unclean spirits such as: Lust, Perversion, Incubus / Succubus, Sater, Kundalini, Uncleanness, Masturbation, Incest. Fornication also brings curses up on your family lineage. Demons will begin to possess you – spirit, soul and body. Your children will become possessed; curses will be passed down from generation to generation because you have given the devil legal right to afflict your descendants and your body – because you have in fact sinned against your own body! What is the difference between Adultery and Fornication? Matthew 5: 27 says: “You have heard that it was said to those of old, ‘You shall not commit adultery” Adultery Adultery can simply be defined as “intimate and sexual relationship including intercourse between two (or more) persons where at least
one partner is married.”

The Ten Commandments contain the clear prohibition of adultery: “You shall not commit adultery.” (Exodus 20: 14) The reason is simple, marriage (between one man and one woman) is the foundation of a society, a nation, and with it comes the responsibility of not only having but caring for and nurturing a child.

Casual sex and sexual relationships outside of your marriage not only imperils marriage, but also destroys the paternal and maternal feeling for the children of the marriage, and mars the lines of family relationships. Fornication Ephesians 5: 3 speaks clearly (as was stated earlier): “But fornication and all uncleanness or covetousness, let it not even be named among you, as is fitting for saints.” We can simply state that “Fornication” is “sexual relationships including sex, between two unmarried persons.” The Apostle Paul said that this is a sin against the body. He commands Christians to flee fornication as it is a sin against oneself and God, for the believer’s body is the temple of the Holy Spirit. (I Corinthians 6: 18 – 19). Paul says if a believer takes his body and joins it to a harlot or someone who is immoral, he is joining Christ to that person. (I Corinthians 6: 15 – 16). We must understand that neither fornicators nor
adulterers will enter the kingdom of heaven (I Corinthians 6: 9 – 10).

In today’s world, the term ‘fornication’ has been given more palatable names and has become the norm in our communities worldwide, and it is now normal to be unmarried, live with the partner and indulge in fornication, but we must remember that it is a sin; and it can send you to everlasting Hell – to burn, yes, burn in the lake of fire.

This lifestyle will destroy your soul, your family and your lineage. Get out now if you are not sure that the person you are with is the person God wants you to be with. Why are you still fornicating? If your partner can live with you for so long and refuses to marry you – that is, to make your commitment official in the sight of man and with God – why are you wasting time? It is part of Satan’s plan to use you, entrap you, and ultimately destroy you. You cannot even begin to comprehend the hate that Satan has for us as human beings who have the opportunity of inheriting Eternal Life with Christ when he (Satan) no longer has that privilege.

HERE ARE THE “BENEFITS” OF A COMMON-LAW RELATIONSHIP

a) You will get ‘beautiful’ excuses like: ‘It’s not time yet. I’m not ready yet.’ (Then you should not be in fornication at all) We don’t have the money for that.’ (You don’t need to do a large, public wedding. Have a private one with a witness) b) Continued excuse-giving until you eventually die in sin and find yourself in a Christ-less eternity. c) Because your partner has not made that solemn commitment in marriage, he or she is free to have numerous partners behind your back because there is no covenant (agreement) between you both and God, so he/she does not have to stay with you. d) Your partner, having become involved with others (male or female), becomes confused about whom he/she loves and wants to be with. e) Broken promises of marriage year after year, and broken hearts followed by messed up lives. f) Multiple children outside of the relationship. g) Your partners other partner(s) becomes involved in witchcraft in order to
keep the relationship and you out of it. Many times it involves giving your partner something to eat to ‘hold’ them and to damage you. h) Soul-ties are formed with every sexual act and indecision develops. They find that for some reason they can’t leave the person. Yet they still hope to get back with their first love (you). i) Your partner’s other partner may be one who is married and the spouse is away. j) Your partner’s lover may be in a better position than you are financially and also on an educational level too.

WHY SHOULD I GET MARRIED?

1) Marriage is a Multi-purpose basis, Human institution. It is common to all cultures. And despite cultural differences, its purpose and value are about the same in all societies. 2) Marriage is a fulfillment of God’s purpose in creation. 3) It contributes mutually to each other’s development. 4) Marriage is necessary because of its nature of Human Sexuality – man and woman are incomplete without each other. 5) Marriage is necessary for the achievement and maintenance of personal integrity. 6) Marriage is important for a new birth or a new member of the society. 7) Eph. 5: 31 – 32. “For this cause shall a man leave his father and mother and shall be joined unto his wife and they shall be one flesh.” The first thing to do before getting married, however, is Matthew 6: 33.

Why would you be willing to sit around with someone for years, indulging more and more in fornication and not even be sure that this is God’s plan for your life? Your husband or wife is just that from the foundation of the world and if you marry the wrong person it will not last – whether or not you have children with this person – because God’s will must be done. Ask yourself these questions:

v “Did God tell you to enter into fornication and this common-law relationship?”
v “Would the Lord encourage or tell you to do something He forbids in order to bless you with a happy life?” Of course not! It was the devil putting the thoughts in your mind and you executed his recommendations.

This is why it is important for you to have a relationship, a real relationship with the Almighty God; so that He can lead you to what He wants for you. You may be in love with the person you are in this common-law relationship with, but that situation is not what God wants for you. He will choose your partner for you. It may be hard, but “obedience is better than sacrifice”. You will be much happier!

Please, come out of fornication now! Save what is left of you and turn to Jesus Christ; He will carry you through.

Read: Ephesians 5: 31 – 32 & St. John 3: 16

DON’T! Don’t allow your children to be even more embarrassed or hurt – put a stop to it! Don’t allow your partner to use money to threaten you and tell you that if you come out of the relationship you will suffer. Jesus has a plan that you don’t even know about – a plan for your life that is so awesome, you might be shocked! Don’t put your trust and all your hope in man(kind), put it all in God. It is a sin to trust in man and not in God!

GRACE, FAVOR AND MERCY

pixabay-bb423ec8972b4f50
We often talk about Grace, Favor and Mercy, but do we really understand what these words mean? No one can live without Grace.  The obstacles, challenges and problems we face on a daily basis, could not/cannot be resolved without Grace, Favor and Mercy.
The word ‘Grace’ simply put, means getting something we do not deserve; unmerited favor; mercy and compassion.’
God’s greatest act Grace that has been given/extended to us is the ability to receive salvation which is available through faith.  (Ephesians 2: 8 – 9)
Grace is what opens doors to us when we are not qualified and t gives us promotion we don’t even deserve.  That is why we must be humble on a daily basis and show someone mercy and compassion; without Grace, we would not be in the position we are now.  
Have you ever been in a selection process for a position or a competition of any kind?  In your mind, you didn’t think you would reach very far or had the talent to go through it, or would even get to a certain level; but it is Grace allowed you to come out on top and it even surprised you!




Oftentimes there are persons who are involved in accidents of one kind or another, and they are the only ones to survive.  Some people will tell them they are lucky, but it is not luck – it is the Grace of Jesus Christ that kept them and has given them another chance.  The main reason that you are alive now and are able read this very article is the Grace of God!
Favor occurs when the requirements and protocols are waived for you.  For example, Esther, Daniel and Joseph all walked in great favor and the kings loved or became endeared to them.  When we were going to school, some students, or maybe you, were called the ‘Teacher’s Pet’.  God gave favor with the teacher.  Maybe when everybody else was failing you just zoomed right through every class and exam with flying colors.
Mercy occurs when one deserves punishment and God withholds His hand and instead extends His love to them.  For example, God sparing Jamaica from a category 5 hurricane; or in the legal circles, God would allow a magistrate to rule in your favor rather than against you; or in any organization with which you transact business, even when you are in default they still extend mercy to you to settle the matter by way of a Grace period.
Gifts and Talents
Quite often, many will see the gifts and talents of others and shower them with praises and accolades!  Look at people like Michael Jordan, Patrick Ewing, Usain Bolt, Bob Marley, Serena Williams and President Barack Obama.  It is God’s Grace and His Favor
Know that NO LEADER at any level can truly be successful without God’s Grace, Favor and Mercy; and that is what will bring prosperity within a nation.  Every leader has to ensure that God’s Grace, Favor and Mercy never leaves them, for when they do, there is sure defeat!
Success, growth and great achievement can only come through Grace.  (John 15: 5)  This is why we MUST abide in God.  Regardless of how successful a person is, without God’s grace, the qualifications and academic achievements mean nothing.
Many times the success of an organization hinges on the presence of a few righteous people in the organization who have Grace and Favor on their lives! We see it with Jacob where Laban prospered simply by having Jacob working for him.  Oftentimes, when these few righteous leave, the organization crashes or goes through a slow, painful death.  So extending Grace to a servant of God can save your life.  They are your insurance; and that is why you must be careful in how you treat a servant of God.
Paul reminds us, in I Corinthians 15: 9 – 10, that although he is the least of the Apostles, it is the Grace of God that has allowed him to accomplish all the work the Lord allowed him to do for Him.




There are many times people will take on Titles and put themselves in certain positions; but it is the Grace of God that sanctions it all.  So if God’s grace for the title or position is not with you then don’t take it on; you would be heading for trouble!
We are in the new Jewish year of 5777 and God wants to extend Grace, Favor and Mercy particularly to those who are sick – to heal their bodies.  You need to begin praying for Grace, Favor and Mercy on a daily basis – for your family, community, nation and the nation’s leaders.

HE WHO IS WITHOUT SIN CAST THE FIRST STONE

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

John 8 is a Scripture we truly need to look at and understand now. Even in light of the current political happenings – we need to ask the question: What if Jesus were on earth right now running against either political party. How would the media treat Him? How would Christians treat Him? How would you treat Him? Maybe some would have said He doesn’t have the right background to be ruler of a nation because of His carpenter’s background. Maybe others would say He doesn’t have a doctorate, nor did He go to an Ivy League School. Maybe others would have said He is surrounded by thugs, con-men, murderers and thieves.




When we look at the adulteress in the Scripture, the consequence for her actions was death by stoning! But the question is, why didn’t they stone the men with whom she committed adultery? Did they really care what she did or what happened to her or was their target really Jesus? They did not care about her, they were using her as bait to trap Jesus! They didn’t care one thing about her! Although the Bible is silent on what Jesus was writing on the ground, could it be that he was actually writing out the various secret sins of those that were in the crowd, armed and ready to ‘fire’?
Why did this woman call the Man who defended her – ‘Lord’ when she responded to His question in John 8: 10 – 11 “When Jesus had lifted up Himself, and saw none but the woman, He said unto her “Woman, where are those your accusers? has no man condemned you? She said, No man, Lord”
She discerned who He was, while the others around were busy hating and making great efforts to trap Him. They hated Jesus so much that they demanded a thief in His place! His own even joined with the enemy to stop Him.
As Christians we must be careful about how we cast stones – meaning we have to be careful about what we say about or to people; because, every time we cast judgement on someone, then the Lord judges us! (Matthew 7: 1 – 5) Jesus does not forbid criticism, opinion or the condemnation of wrongdoing. What He forbids is censoriousness – the spirit of fault-finding that overlooks ones’ own short comings while assuming the role of supreme judge regarding the sins of others.
God is calling the Body of Christ deeper because there are great deceptions ahead. Don’t be fooled! We better watch the Media because they will be judging the Church and playing ‘God’ in 2017.




“… Deep calls unto deep…” and we must show sinners the Way; because a lot of them see Christians as hypocrites! God always uses the despised, the base things, To get His glory!
Look at the people that the Lord used for greatness in the Scriptures:
Prostitutes – Rahab
Murderers – Moses
Adulterers – David
Thieves – Gideon
Betrayer – Judas
Robber – Matthew
Racist – Peter
Prisoner – Joseph
Slave – Daniel
Regardless of what or who you are, if you are willing, God will use you to His honor and glory!

MENTORSHIP AND MANIPULATION

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

 Part 2 – Manipulation

In Part 1 of this article, we focused on the Mentorship aspect of this issue.  In Part 2, let us look at the matter of Manipulation.

Manipulation is about wielding power and control.  Manipulation directs a person to a path through exploitation, deception and control in order to maintain or access power.  It comes in many ways and in different arenas.

Manipulation exists in politics, religion, media, business, education, our social lives and even in marriage!  It is the greatest hindrance right now regarding good governance and advancing a nation’s growth.  If, for example, an individual believes that they are academically superior to you, then they will make efforts to manipulate you in order to maintain or wield power over you.  That is why there is no great effort to reduce effort properly.




Manipulation In The Church

Within the Church, the level of manipulation is so high that the ‘regular’ Christian does not truly know what it is to be a real Christian.  There are 2 basic types of manipulation happening in the Church:

The Charismatic/Pentecostal Manipulation

The Traditional Church Manipulation

The Charismatic/Pentecostal Manipulation occurs where people utilize their gifts to manipulate people and ultimately shift them out of their purpose, because they want to maintain control and dominion over them.  They pull the believer from Christ and pull them to themselves; teaching them about a Crown without the Cross!  They utilize the Scriptures such as II Chronicles 20: 20 or Amos 3: 7, for example, and they manipulate the meaning of that Scripture to influence people to listen to them only and shift from the true meaning of that Word.  However, if we examine those Scriptures, we will see the word ‘His’ before the words ‘prophets’ and ‘servants’.  What if the prophet is not of God?

The Traditional Church Manipulation employs the use of Theology and Philosophy to keep the people in a state of spiritual blindness and ignorance, as well as spiritual passivity!  They often engage in heresy, promising progressive Christianity where Christ is demoted and the basic tenets of Christianity are negated or ignored.  They choose to ignore the Holy Spirit and His work especially in present time, and confine His existence only to the time of Scriptures.  They focus on the Law/Legalism instead of Grace as principles for daily living (Colossians 2: 8); they promise enlightenment and liberation when in fact, by virtue of ignoring and belittling the work of the Holy Spirit in present time, they bring people deeper in bondage spiritually and mentally and keep the people dependent on them, much like the Pharisees of Biblical times.  Instead they invite magicians and New Age principles and activities (such as Yoga) into the House of the Lord.

Manipulation In Business And Politicians

In business, especially in Sales and Market Research, they will withhold information from you, ask you what you are looking for and try to find out how knowledgeable you are of their inner workings.   Then they steer you in a particular direction and lock you into a deal.  By the time the true picture is revealed, you have already signed.

Many lawyers use our ignorance/lack of knowledge of the law, and manipulate the meanings or words and terminologies to manipulate and rob us with our eyes wide open!  Many of those in that profession who are called brilliant and genius, are in fact some of the greatest manipulators.

The politicians use eloquence in oration (pretty speeches) to manipulate, and many listening use it as an indication of the speaker’s intelligence, knowledge and academic achievement; they also assume that it means they are good and care deeply about their listeners, and those politicians know that!  A person’s eloquence does not indicate whether they will be good leaders or not.




Individual Manipulation

At the individual level, manipulators cause you to feel guilty should you disagree with or try to pull away from them.  They always remind you of what they did for you in the past.  They will invite you to lunch, for example, and ask you probing questions.  They want to carry out a SWOT Analysis of sorts on you before they make their move on you.  In other words, they want to know your strengths and weaknesses to determine if you are a threat to them and see what opportunities exist with you.  They want to know where you stand, so they will ask you: ‘What do you think about X leader/person?’

For change to come, we need Mentorship, not Manipulation.

Four Elements For Economic Development

pixabay-bb4b3fca982c45465e

Economic Development is the number one priority for every nation at this time; but many countries are now struggling with the current system of economic development. For example, the textbook syndrome is no longer feasible at this time. We must now focus on biblical economics and kingdom principles in order to have a balanced economy. It is imperative for every government that wants to be successful to focus on four main areas.

(a) Health – trees, leaves, herbs,

(b) Water – wells, rain, river, catchment areas, coconut water

(c) Energy – wind, sun, solar, and hydro power

(d) Agriculture – food, farming and trade.

Ninety per cent of man’s substance comes from the earth. Everything was created from water! The earth was created from water. That means the economy is created from water itself. Water also represents the Holy Spirit and so we could surmise that since water is vital to economic development, then economic development cannot take place without the Holy Spirit.




If we are going to have an economic revolution, particularly in the Third-World countries, then transformational leaders have to create a vision to develop and market the natural resources that already exist (Revelation 22; Ezekiel 42; Genesis 1). If they don’t move quickly, Firs-World countries are going to take away all the resources we already have.

What nations need to do is to merge agricultural ministry with health, and merge water with energy. Once we have a plan, then train and equip the people, and they would be on the path to success.

For a balanced economy to emerge, we must follow the original plan; everything was created with four main areas or divisions. For example, within a person you have the brain, skull, neck and face which forms the head. The brain houses intellect and information systems. The neck provides boney support for movement, The skull encompasses the brain, and the face contains distinguishing features between different individuals. So in order to be successful, we have to be different from other nations. We cannot follow the economic blueprint of other nations.

Within each person is a set of solutions for economic development! So government needs to create an information database to listen to the various ideas for economic development.

While macroeconomics focuses on the behavior of the market and other areas such as unemployment and inflation rates microeconomics focuses on the behaviour of the consumer. Since the consumers possess the capacity to bring solutions for economic development, then there needs to be more focus on the microeconomics.
Everything Built On Fours

On the fourth day of creation, God made two great lights, “the Sun and the Moon; and God gave light to govern” – the sun by day and the moon by night. Then God separated light from darkness. For success, every government must separate from the dark things in order to experience growth within a nation. Every leader must have four set of characteristics for success. The characteristics of the:

– Lion – dominion and kingship.

– Ox – must be actively concerned about the welfare of ALL involved.

– Man – rule with compassion and mercy.

– Eagle – vision for the future; able to see ahead and know which area to focus on for economic development.

It is critical for leaders to understand the times and seasons for economic development or to:

Implement

Invest

Divest

Restructure

These areas are going to be critical for any nation choosing to move forward!

There are four seasons

There are four Cardinal Directions

Interestingly, Budgets and taxes are always presented, tabled, implemented in the fourth month.

There are also four basic functions for money and levels of faith.

The government needs to focus on four areas:

– Keep power equal and have proper checks and balances,

– Provide national security

– Have economic equality.

– Pass laws that will benefit the people and provide economic stability

I believe every transformational leader should put systems in place to have a national audit to include the central bank/Treasury, when there is a change of government, to clearly outline what will be handed over to the new government. We need to see a profit and loss Statement that the common man can read and understand. In Nehemiah 5: 14-19, Nehemiah requested such an audit. In fact, he believed that self-sacrifice is necessary for moral leadership and he led by example. Previous governors had lived richly at the taxpayers’ expense, but Nehemiah refused to do so. Many of our politicians today would do well to take a pay cut.

10 MISTAKES MARRRIED COUPLES SHOULDN’T MAKE

Family is the first line of government in any society and needs to be properly managed and maintained.  When we get marriages to function properly in the society then other institutions will then function right in order to make for a better society.
Sadly, the institute of marriage is under serious attack, and the following are things that married couples should avoid doing.
  •  ENTERTAINING DIVISION IN THE VISION. A married couple should not have two different visions and set of goals especially as it relates to the family unit.  They are one.  So when God says “leave and cleave” it means that each must put aside anything that would cause them to function as two independent units and embrace what would cause or allow them to function as one strong unit – in sync, fighting for one goal and accomplishing a single purpose for the family unit.
  • GIVING CONTROL OF YOUR MARRIAGE TO RELATIVES AND FRIENDS. Handing over control of your marriage and decision-making that takes place within it, to family members and friends can cause divorce.  When it is time for decision-making at any level within your marriage, you and your spouse should work it out through communication and prayer.  If that fails, then seek counselling from qualified persons who also have the best interest of your marriage at heart.  
  • ALLOWING SOCIAL NETWORKS TO STEAL QUALITY TIME.  Do not allow social networks/media to rob you of valuable and quality time with your spouse and your family.  Hiding passwords from each other, allowing ‘ex-friends/ex-partners’ to give you counsel about your marriage, posting pictures of past relationships with other friends commenting, exposes your family to verbal attacks and can have significant and grave consequences for your marriage and family life.
  •  DELIBERATELY DEPRIVING EACH OTHER OF SEX.  This is never to be a weapon in your marriage.  The Bible is clear on it in I Corinthians 7: 1 – 5 and Ephesians 5: 22 – 24.  Sex is a part of the covenant ascribed by God to husband and wife married to each other.
  •  NAGGING.  Proverbs 21: 19.  Nagging turns a person off and is an enemy to zeal and enthusiasm. It is defiling.  While nagging can be found on both sides, women are often found to be more guilty.  Nagging has the potential to drive a husband into the arms of another.  Nagging doesn’t solve anything, prayer and fasting do!
  •  POOR COMMUNICATION.  A lack of communication is the number one reason for marriage breakups.  Communication is not simply talking with each other, it involves attitudes, mannerisms, body language and even habits.  Non-communication is also a form of communication, but at its poorest level.  Some spouses make decisions for the family but do not communicate it to the other.
  •  EXCLUDING GOD FROM YOUR MARRIAGE AND FAMILY RELATIONSHIPS.  Never make the mistake that society has by excluding God from your family unit.  God is to be first in your marriage and in your family unit.  Prayer and the Word of God in decision-making must be the first priority!  When problems arise, the Word will guide you.  A simple thing as going to bed with unresolved problems can become disastrous!  (I Peter 3: 7; Ephesians 4: 26)
  •  UNFORGIVENESS AND NOT SPENDING ENOUGH TIME TOGETHER.  Never bring past hurts into your marriage.  Focus on the future and not the past.  You have to make up your mind to let things of the past go!  Spend time together doing things together.  Marriage is about compromising and giving to and for each other.
  • ADULTERY AND NEGATIVE CRITICISM.  Avoid adultery altogether!  Never compare your marriage with others.  Avoid X-rated Movies and pornography as stimulants for your marriage.  Furthermore, negative criticism of each other MUST be avoided.  Speak life to each other.  Stay away from pornography, swing clubs and yoga.
  •  NEGLECTING THE JOYS OF AN EXCITING SEX LIFE.   Change our eating habits and set up a health plan for fitness.  Be careful of personal trainers.   Engage in healthy weight management together and embrace the use of natural remedies – herbs, fruits, vegetables and nuts – to help you maintain a healthy and exciting sex life.  Get back to basics and enjoy the benefits of these foods that God created, including Melons, Lettuce, Almonds, Unsalted Peanuts, Walnuts, Flax Seeds, Sesame Seeds, and Pumpkin Seeds and invest in a good blender or extractor.  Ezekiel 47: 12 reminds us that the leaves bring healing and God wants us healed body, soul and spirit, and at the same time, get a revelation of the benefits of the natural gifts He has given us.
The family is under attack and it is time to fight back.
