Spiritual Impact on Natural Results - Haiti

Haiti - In The News

Some time ago the world's news, especially the liberal press, went into violent outrage at the claim by Pat Robertson that Haiti experienced bad things because of it's ties to Satan. TIME magazine wrote an article regarding the differences between Haiti and Dominican Republic citing many natural causes for the countries differences. In response CBN put forth a response statement to all of the outrage.

Haiti- Religious Background

Haiti is a land of mixed religions. Catholics Christians, Protestant Christians, African religions, Native Religions, even a few Muslims were brought in as slaves in the founding of this strange mixed up Island Country some 200+ years ago. Although the majority of the Island claims Christian Faith of some kind, it's more of a mix of Christianity, Native and African Religions all put together. To this day over 50% of the population practices some form of Haitian Vodou. For those unfamiliar with Vodou just think of the scene from Pirates of the Caribbean "Tia Dalma". Vodou is OVERTLY Satanic in origin and practice. Secular people, with no Biblical foundation for truth, cannot understand the link between Satan and Vodou, although it is more than obvious with even a casual understanding of biblical history and who the devil is and what he represents. 

Haiti - "Pact with the Devil"

So where did this "Pact with Satan" come from, that Pat Robertson referred to? It refers to ceremony of "Bois Caiiman" led by a slave Vodou Houngan (priest) Dutty Boukman. He is described as a having a large warrior like appearance and a violent temper. This priest led a group of angry slaves in a ceremony.

Wiki for Bois Caiiman reads:
A man named Boukman, another houngan, organized on August 14, 1791, a meeting with the slaves in the mountains of the North. This meeting took the form of a Voodoo ceremony in the Bois Caiman in the northern mountains of the island. It was raining and the sky was raging with clouds; the slaves then started confessing their resentment of their condition. A woman started dancing languorously in the crowd, taken by the spirits of the loas. With a knife in her hand, she cut the throat of a pig and distributed the blood to all the participants of the meeting who swore to kill all the whites on the island. On August 22, 1791, the blacks of the North entered into a rebellion, killing all the whites they met and setting the plantations of the colony on fire. However, the French quickly captured the leader of the slaves, Boukman, and beheaded him, bringing the rebellion under control.
This ceremony was the start of the revolution which ultimately led to the people declaring their freedom and killing and burning their way to freedom. So in that sense the people who began this uprising indeed began it with roots in demonic ceremony. Root of an event has much to do with the fruit of an event. To this day over 1/2 of the population of Haiti still practices forms of Vodou.

The slaves were right to be angry, as they had a right to be angry in the USA. However in the USA it was the Gospel of Jesus that led to the freedom of Slaves and eventually black equality. In Haiti it was a result of violent bloodshed and death. The blacks in the USA took longer to gain their freedom, but it was a lasting more peaceful freedom. This too could have come faster, but that is for another article.

Dominican Republic - Religious Background

Like Haiti, the Dominican Republic is composed of a large number of Catholics and Protestants. Also like Haiti Vodou is practiced with subtle differences in style. The practices of the people who do practice Vodou are of a firm belief in One God. However this is were we see a difference. Haiti calls this God "Great Master" in a distant way. Dominican Republic calls this God "Good God".

Wiki Explains
Contrary to popular belief, like Haitian Voodun, practitioners of Dominican Vodou believe in one main God, the Creator, Papa Bon Dyé (the good God) as although physically absent from the Earth, he is still good to us all. In Haiti He also goes by Gran Met (the Great Master). The Kreyol influence in Dominican Vodou can be seen in the standard greeting used "Bonswa a la societé"
Dominican Republic - Origins: Freedom Through The Cross

La Trinitaria, founded by Juan Pablo Duarte on July 16th 1838 was a secret society formed to discuss and plan a declaration of independence of their half of the Island. The Flag of the Dominican Republic was designed by these "Founding Fathers", and it contains a white Cross over a red and blue banner, symbolizing their Christian Heritage.

Far from free, this land has many troubles of it's own. The same general people, language, occupations, hardships, and troubles have been consistent with both countries on the same Island. TIME magazine points to all of the natural reasons, geography, and social/political/language differences in the founding of these two wildly diverse nations. The UN Ranks the Dominican Republic 98 on their Human Development Index. Haiti is ranks 158th. There are 187 Countries on their list.

The Curse and The BLESSING

Since the time of Adam and the fall of man the Curse has been living in this planet. The BLESSING that was in Adam to BLESS the whole earth was turned to a Curse when separated from it's source in the God of the BLESSING. Generally sin is under a curse and it is judged. Jesus came to restore the BLESSING of Adam, Noah, and Abraham and redeem us from the Curse. Since the time of Jesus the earth has lived under a dual leadership situation, much like the Island of Haiti. Half the the island is in absolute poverty and the other half, known as the Dominican Republic is in relative abundance.

So it is with the whole word. There are places that live in various manifestations of The BLESSING and there are nations that live in various manifestations of The Curse. No nation is ALL BLESSED or ALL CURSED. This is because the state of a people is dependent on the state of it's people. Any one person can live in The BLESSING. If they do they can begin to experience measures of the Garden of Eden in their lives. The more people that bring the BLESSING into a situation the greater it grows.

Any direct act toward God as a group, no matter how small will bring His direct response to come in and protect them from the affects of the Curse. Any direct act against God and as any gentleman who is asked to leave would, He leaves. He removes His hand, partially or fully. His hand always brings the BLESSING. So when it's removed the Curse washes in.

A nation that refuses to seek God, be they Haiti or the USA, or Israel itself will suffer from The Curse. This is not because God curses them. It is because the Curse already exists and it's waiting to enter in at any opportunity. This is what happened to Job. He engaged in sacrifices, not out of faith, but out of Fear. Fear is faith in evil's ability to harm you. Faith is released by confessing with the mouth and believing in the heart. Therefore Job said: "...the thing I so greatly feared has come upon me..." Job allowed the curse to enter his life.

Therefore what TIME doesn't, and can't, understand is that the natural things they cited are the RESULT of the BLESSING on Dominican Republic not the cause. All natural results are from spiritual causes. Even people who hate God, but do what He said and abide by His principles, will receive some natural results from that obedience. There are subtle differences between Haiti and Dominican Republic, but what set them apart was a different root.

BLESSING or Curse
-
The Choice is Ours

 God told us in His word the BLESSING and Curse are ultimately our choice. He told us what we could do that would bring us either response from the earth. The USA has been hit by catastrophes every time it's made a decision not to side with Israel. This is because God promised that those who stand with Israel would be BLESSED and those who stood against her would be Cursed.

The wonderful thing in knowing this, is that there is never a moment that is too late. God's mercies are new every morning. As any person, or nation, takes a stand and says: "God, I believe... what next?" God will lead them to their place in His plan. Haiti and the USA are both in a similar position today. Both nations, at one level or another, have turned their back on God at a certain point in history. Haiti did this in 1791. The USA did this in 1947. Both have a promise from God that they are reaching a turning point.

Haiti will not end as they began. Haiti will rise and become the jewel of God she is meant to be. Even now, Kenneth Copeland Ministries has been and will be working in Haiti to deliver not just material support but spiritual support to this nation. Many Christians from all over the world and from within the nation have taken their place to stand with and in Haiti. There has already been great change. There is much work to be done. This end times world is in desperate need of the Gospel of Grace. We, The Church, will be and are rising. It's time to take our rightful place as ambassadors of The BLESSING and change a world in preparation for the rapture and the return. 

So I ask you two questions:

  1. Are you working the BLESSING in your life?
  2. Are you taking the BLESSING to the world around you?
I call you empowered 2 prosper with good success!

First Draft First Novel... Done! On to Edits...

So... I completed the first draft of my short novel White Noise - The Tower (Episode 1). 
You can read it (warts and all) below. I'm going to go back through and start editing (I already have). But it's mostly done now. I've also roughed out a book cover (we'll see if I stick with this direction).

Of course, I'm taking a big risk by calling it "Episode 1"... that means I have to write Episode 2, 3, & 4 at least. (That's where I have the story sketched out to at this point.

I hope you enjoy!

(Click here to read online) OR, email Me@DarrellWolfe.com and I'll put you on a list to be a beta reader when the final edits are done. 

Comment on this post or the Author Fun post about the Book Cover. Any feedback will be taken into consideration.


First round of critiques for Distortion Scene 1 "Street Noise"

One of the scariest things for most authors (especially fiction authors) to do is open their work to the blatant critique of others. The author got to know their work so well, they know the backstory (that never made it onto the page), etc.


This very intimacy makes them blind to the things the reader sees immediately.

As Ernest Hemingway famously said, “The first draft of anything is *crap.”
I put out the 1st scene of Distortion, "Street Noise", for a writers critique. It was quite illuminating. I chose not to take it personally but learn from each point. Some things I agreed with, some I didn't. Some were clear craft mistakes while others were stylistic choices I could take or leave.

I have a feeling that my re-write will be so much better due to this experience. I also found a critique buddy (Hey Ashleigh!) who I can work with as I go through re-writes.

Distortion Scene 1 "Street Noise" can be read in its current form (as of today) in the second draft on my It…

Vote @GovGaryJohnson for President in November 2016

Gary Johnson #Libertarian For President #LiveFree | #MakeAmericaSaneAgain
After much thought, review, and internal debate this past 12 months. I have taken a stand. I endorse Gary Johnson, Libertarian, for President of the United States of America. I will be voting Libertarian at every level (President, Senator, Mayor, School Board... etc) in November 2016.

I ask you to support a common sense approach, and to run from the Tyranny of Donald Trump AND Hillary Clinton (and their parties).

When men and women are free from government and corporate interference, they are the happiest and more prosperous people.

You and I may have honest intellectual disagreements on the moral quality of one choice or another, and we can debate and discuss those choices openly and freely in a free society.

However, as long as you are not harming my person or property, and I am not harming your person or property, we should not attempt to control each other through government force. We should each be free to…

I left the #GOP forever and it has nothing to do with Donald Trump.

#Election2016 Clarification:
I heard another talk radio guy (Grant Stinchfield) jump on the Trump Train this morning... another person claiming to be a conservative who is so blinded by his hate for Hillary Clinton, he cannot see that the devil he chose is worse than the one he rejects.

Hillary and Obama combined couldn't harm this country as bad as Trump could. That's what worries me most about this coming election. But here's the thing Grant doesn't get. He thinks I'm voting for Gary Johnson because of Trump.

I left the #GOP forever and it has nothing to do with Donald Trump.  Read on (HERE) to find out why...

An Open Letter: John Stumpf, Wells Fargo Board, and Policy Making Departments

On 12/28/13, I wrote the following letter to the then CEO & President of Wells Fargo, John Stumpf. It was in part, a response to the LA Times Article and the poor response from Wells Fargo leadership.

I later worked for the executive office and saw how they handle these letters. They assign them to a paper-pusher who could care less. They draft a form response, and it gets tallied in the statistics.

By the time it makes it to the CEO, it's only data in a pie chart. "We had 365 complaints this month. x number of complaints about checking, y number about sales practices, Etc." They tally it up, if it's not a big enough stat, it gets zero attention. Most things that do require attention get just enough to make it go away, but never deal with the root.

I was one of many hundreds who spoke up loudly and actively for years before 2013 and years after. The news cycle of 2016 showed that it cost them $185 Million dollars to ignore the feedback their frontline Team Membe…

Hello.... Welcome

I'm setting up this site to be a single HUB for all of my various creations. I'd rather not hand out a different business card to each person, as the topic of interest changes and I happen to have written about it.

Since I'm a Multipontialite, I figured it fits to have a single hub. If it works for Seth Godin, it works for me!

Thanks for stopping by, Darrell

I want a Hippopotas for Christmas!!!! http://buff.ly/1PhijYQ #Pokemon #Fan

I want a Hippopotas for Christmas!!!!  #Pokemon #Fan
OK... so several years ago I decided that the song "I want a Hippopotamus for Christmas" was my favorite Christmas song.

Then, after learning about Hippos, I decided they were one of my favorite animals.

This morning, I found a Hippo Pokemon set to the Christmas song... and I just HAD to share!
