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!

I Collect Churches

So I have a confession... I have a strange hobby. Some people collect toys, cars, stamps. Some people visit museums, zoos, arboretums.



I... collect church experiences. I visit churches and collect insights on the differences between them, leadership styles, music styles, facility choices, and the overall experience. I collect pastoral teaching and teaching styles. I collect theology and theological differences.
I didn't know it was a hobby at first. I thought I was just "looking for a home church", or looking for something I hadn't found yet. I thought I just hadn't found my place...

Some of that is true. But really, I somewhat accidentally turned studying church into a hobby. Maybe it's because I was a pastor's kid and saw some of the inside workings from a unique perspective. Maybe it's because I secretly, and not so secretly, feel I am supposed to be a pastor but I'm still trying desperately to be anything else.

Maybe it's because Church, …

Writing Prompt | Room and Bored

At the Heart Writers group meeting tonight, led by Lauren Stinton, we did a short writing prompt.

You have seven minutes to write (fiction or nonfiction) and it must include these three items/themes:

Jesus is Lord of allPrincessCat
Here is my result, with a bit of post-meeting editing and addition. Keep in mind, I wrote it in OneNote on my phone...

*** Room and Bored The light amplified through the double glass window pane, despite the clawed dusty drapes, warming Princess' furry belly. She was Queen of this castle and she held the honor with dignity.

Her human was a good servant. He brought her food at the appointed time. He changed her box. He performed his part admirably.

Then her life shattered.

Her human walked in the front door and laid a box on the table. "Princess, I have a surprise for you, " He said.

She rolled off the couch back and sauntered over. The pawed the box. It moved. She jumped back, "Moew," she cried.

A soft rumble came from the box.

TEMAN


te'-man (teman, "on the right," i.e. "south"; Thaiman): The name of a district and town in the land of Edom, named after Teman the grandson of Esau, the son of his firstborn, Eliphaz (Genesis 36:11 1 Chronicles 1:36). A duke Teman is named among the chiefs or clans of Edom (Genesis 36:42 1 Chronicles 1:53). He does not however appear first, in the place of the firstborn. Husham of the land of the Temanites was one of the ancient kings of Edom (Genesis 36:34 1 Chronicles 1:45). From Obad 1:9 we gather that Teman was in the land of Esau (Edom). In Amos 1:12 it is named along with Bozrah, the capital of Edom. In Ezekiel 25:13 desolation is denounced upon Edom: "From Teman even unto Dedan shall they fall by the sword." Dedan being in the South, Teman must be sought in the North Eusebius, Onomasticon knows a district in the Gebalene region called Theman, and also a town with the same name, occupied by a Roman garrison, 1…

Have you died yet today?

Recently, I said I wasn't religious but I did have a relationship with Jesus. The person replied that is a "textbook" response for a Christian; therefore, I am a Christian; therefore, I am religious.

I have to laugh because "religion" is the dead following of dead traditions. The difference between my two-way relationship with a real living person (Jesus) and a religious person is the difference between a Tree and a Motorcycle. They have nothing to do with one-another.

Yet, I can see how they get it. Religious people would read this passage and see something totally different than I see, yet we read the same passage.
...anyone who has died has been set free from sin... In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus... Don’t you know that when you offer yourselves to someone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one you obey—whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness?
