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!

The W Story Structure - 4 Sequence Story Structure

Out of everything I've ever read on story structure for fiction writing, the W-Story Structure makes the most sense to me. If you'd rather view these as Acts (3-Act or 4-Act) you can overlay that on this W and it still works.



Glen C. Strathy writes (in much more detail here) in his article, The W-Plot vs. The Dramatica Model of Story Structure. There are four sequences for most stories. Each of the four legs of the W is comprised of a sequence of events that lead the story along to it's natural conclusion.

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)Sequence 2: recovering from the problem (new ideas, positive momentum)Sequence 3: deepening of the problemSequence 4: the resolution of the problem (new light or understanding)

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)
The Inciting Event (the event that is at the heart of the reason this story happened) may have occurred before your story begins, and often does. In King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017), th…

Topic: No More Facebook... for 28 days or more?

I Deactivated Facebook... for 28 days.
I'm not sure why yet.
I wasn't using it much, and when I did I found it distracting, in a non-productive way. I left Twitter up for now, and Google+ is so pervasive that I'd have to delete ALL my Google activity/accounts in order to walk away from it.

Deactivating is not the same as Deleting, that would be permanent. I set Facebook to auto-reactivate in 28 days. I want to run this as an experiment. Can I make it 28 days without Facebook? I think so. I may come back. I'm not sure yet.

What could I accomplish in the next 28 days? Write a new book? Publish some new posts? Work overtime at my job? I don't know. I'd like this to be more purposeful.
28 days from Dec 27, 2014Want to figure out the date that is exactly twenty-eight days from Dec 27, 2014 without counting?
Your starting date is December 27, 2014 so that means that 28 days later would be January 24, 2015.
You can check this by using the date difference calculator to meas…

Eradicate the word "had" from your writing.

I have been writing for years, first as a hobbiest with passing intrest, then semi-professionally as a blogger, then professionally as a Complaints Reporter and Letter Writers, and now as Technical Writer working on Policy & Procedure (P&P). In that time, I've had the opportunity to edit other's work even more often than my own.

Had is an easy way to clean up your manuscriptAmong the most common pitfalls I've seen, in both Nonfiction and Fiction writing, is the word "HAD". You can almost always simply delete it, and it the sentence will not only remain fully intact, but the meaning will be clearer.

I notice it in my writing, in my Letter Writers, and I've seen it three times today in other authors at Scribophile. Below are the works I critiqued/edited today.

Both are examples of good storytelling and world building. Both have edit issues to work out to be ready for publishing.

Both are examples of how incomplete craft (my own included) can be overcoming b…

FICO

$ 14  FICO
W hat is a FICO score? Many people want to know what a FICO score is. FICO stands for the Fair Isaac Corporation, founded in 1956 and in 2009 renamed: FICO. This is the one company that has more control over your interest rates and loan approvals than any other. They review your credit reports and create a score based on the information found there.
            The formula that determines that score is TOP SECRET. The banks don't even know it. We do know a few things about the score though.  The Credit Scores can vary from 300 to 850, recently information has come out that it may go into the 900's now. A “Good Score” is hard to determine because different lenders have different cut off marks. According to Wikipedia the average marker in the USA is about 640.[1]This score is about the breaking point between bad and good. Typically, though, banks are looking for scores in the 700’s
~DSR or DTI~             The better your score the better the interest rate and the higher th…
