Its  the  last day of July 2018.Seven months has sped by and soon it will be December  and then the New Year will be upon us.

We live  in a world of advanced technology.. Academia and pursuing studies  is the path many pursue.

With this advent many dispel , refute and openly scoff at God, Jesus the Bible  and the Christian faith.

It is rumored that the  builders of the Titanic said that it was unsinkable and as it is rumored that not even God could sink it.

The  builders had built the boat on what was worst case scenarios and the boat taking  a hit at the front of the boat.

All was done to make sure that if such a scenario happened all the safety features, mechanisms put in place would allow the boat to make it safely to any port .

They did not  foresee the  side sweep that resulted in damage and cause the boat to sink.

The boat builders were mere humans who did not have the knowledge, or foresight to avert the problems,that the ship face after the side sweep .

Omnipotence, Omniscience, and Omnipresence

Omnipotence means all-powerful. Monotheistic theologians regard God as having supreme power. This means God can do what he wants. It means he is not subject to physical limitations like man is. Being omnipotent, God has power over wind, water, gravity, physics, etc. God’s power is infinite, or limitless.

Omniscience means all-knowing. God is all all-knowing in the sense that he is aware of the past, present, and future. Nothing takes him by surprise. His knowledge is total. He knows all that there is to know and all that can be known.

Omnipresence means all-present. This term means that God is capable of being everywhere at the same time. It means his divine presence encompasses the whole of the universe. There is no location where he does not inhabit. This should not be confused with pantheism, which suggests that God is synonymous with the universe itself; instead, omnipresence indicates that God is distinct from the universe, but inhabits the entirety of it. He is everywhere at once.

 

There is no one more powerful. better or knowledgeable than God . That is why as believers we should never underestimate, the wisdom,power, might, grace , love, mercy and compassion of God.

Covenant, New Life, Favor

For I will be leaning toward you with favor and regard for you, multiplying you, and establishing and ratifying My covenant with you

And you shall eat the [abundant] old store of produce long kept, and clear out the old [to make room] for the new. (Leviticus 26:9-10 Amplified)

Father, it is hard not to lean on my own understanding. Yet as I look upon  Your awesome beauty, I realize I cannot comprehend how wonderful and mighty You really are. I realize I am truly made in Your image and that is unexplainable. I grasp for words to describe the love in my heart for all that You have done. I too am a partaker of the breath You breathed into Your first creation.

When You said all You created was good it included me though I was not yet born. This is something I long to have a deeper revelation of…to know beyond a shadow of doubt. To do so will change how I see not only myself but everyone else.

What an amazing thing to know You knew me before the foundations of the earth. It is hard to believe the reality of Your love and acceptance when I know of all my imperfections and flaws; yet, You loved me so much that You redeemed me from my sins.

Help me to walk in a deeper revelation of the goodness You declare over me, because I am Your workmanship in Christ Jesus. Help me to understand Your special love language…the language of the heart. May I see what You see and understand what You saw so long ago without qualification.

Father, I will not fear what You reveal to me for I know You are Love. Your eyes are fixed on me and My eyes are fixed upon You. Just as an eagle locks talons with its mate as they fall through the air in an act of complete trust, I lock my heart with Yours in one accord. I lock my heart with Yours in the bonds of trust never to be released. As we walk together in the intimate places in the secret Garden of our love, I will see all the beauty of who You are, and who You are making me. I receive the visions of Your heart for me.

Please forgive me for believing any lies about You…for doubting Your faithfulness because of my own failings or the unfaithfulness of others. I understand the enemies desire to steal, kill and destroy all with which You have blessed me. This is nothing new. However, because of Your loving words of affirmation, I am more aware of the enemy’s actions in this endeavor. Believing his accusations causes me to plant seeds of doubt and unbelief which lead to hopelessness. Hope in you Lord, does not disappoint. I choose to stay my mind on You and the fruitfulness of Your undying love. There is no other way…nothing else is profitable.

Help me to continue to be aware of the enemy’s devices. I understand he will attempt to sabotage, undermine and destabilize any and all areas of my life if he can. I see the world being shaken, and the destabilization of our economy as well as our government. This can easily give way to fear should I take my eyes off of You and the truth of Your word. Yes, my eyes are set on You Lord. In the midst of darkness, You translated me into the Kingdom of Light and call me a son of God created to bring forth fruit.

Thank You for helping me to walk in the Spirit and not after the flesh, enabling me to bring forth one hundred-fold fruit. May my garden reflect the beauty of the Perfect Gardener, as You prune away all that is unfruitful. How I desire to bring You Glory in all I do and say. How I desire to walk according to all You already know I am. Therefore, I will cooperate with You to bring to the surface all hidden things capable of producing bad fruit. Manifest and destroy every work of the enemy in my life. Enable me…strengthen me that I may walk in Your perfect will all my days…that my whole heart be surrendered for Your service.

Father, I praise You for providing seed for the sower and bread for eating…for providing all I could ever possibly need to bring about an abundant harvest in my life. I cherish the seeds You provide and plant them in the good soil of my heart. As a result, I will produce fruit that glorifies You from a pure heart forever submitted to the truth of Your Word. I realize how important it is to purposefully plant the seeds of truth in my heart in a proper way that they may be multiplied according to Your truth and not my flesh. Out of the abundance of harvest, I can share Your love with those You send me to.

The Word planted in the good soil of my heart and mind will cause me…make me to recognize the enemy of my soul and all his tactics…will cause me recognize doubt and unbelief in my heart as he whispers “Hath God said”?

Help me to see and know where I have planted wrong seeds so I may confess and repent…so I may speak death to all his plans before a harvest is produced. I will guard my heart and only allow the seeds of truth and wisdom given to me to be planted in the garden of my heart. Thank You for creating me with the ability to multiply. I choose to multiply goodness and truth to glorify You in my life.

Father, it is an awesome thought to know You not only created Heaven and Earth for my habitation, but You created me as an exquisite habitation for You…created me as a temple to house Your glorious Presence. How amazing this is. My heart longs to fathom the depth of Your great love and Your willingness to live in me.

Thank You for creating an intimate place where we can share our hearts…a place of relationship and confidence where we can express the truest language of all, the mutual expression of devoted love. You have given me the gift of free will. You allow me to choose to respond to Your call and Your loving embrace. No matter how I respond, you still love me; therefore, I am motivated to react in positive ways, taking all You have promised at face value. I believe and I receive.

Lord, help me to walk in complete freedom and not in a performance based mentality. Relationship with You is built on the accepting the Cross of Christ and all it means. You thought I was worth dying for therefore, I choose to walk in a manner which demonstrates You are worth living for. I choose to enter into a renewed covenant with You today, knowing You rescued me from darkness and placed me into the Kingdom of Your Son. I praise You knowing there is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus for You triumph over the law of sin and death. It is truly awesome to know that I cannot be loved any more than I am right now. No more performance, for it is by the Cross I am saved. I am free to be me, the creation of God You have made me to be. Amen

 

I aint Duncy

I ain’t duncy.
I get a lot of free online and in the past magazines from top economic forums and bodies and insight into economic policies and initiatives in the world , this region and South America..
I love politics and I follow politics,and activities, regional newspapers and current events..
I just read a 2016 IMF report on National Insurance schemes and reform in the Caribbean .
I have taken time to look at Labour movements and tax reform in the region ..
We are suppose in the 2017’s to be an even better educated society than lets say in the 1930’s 40’s etc..
For my own appeasement i have been seeking to find out the numbers of persons who would have studies economics from the High School Level to the University level at all stages.
I am a Caribbean man , and i will always look at the works and papers of prominent and eminent West Indian statesmen and academics who have made a name for themselves at all levels and whose work , can help impact our societies only if they are used and implemented at the right times..
In 1992 I made an observation and then a pronouncement that most politicians in this island would move away from the fundamental philosophies of helping the masses and represent interest groups..
Sadly it is happening at this present time in such a bold faced alarming way and being done by persons whose only agenda is to remain in the house of parliament and to network and make their contacts that when they leave that house, their bread, biscuits and whatever else will be well buttered..
The down fall of any country is Corruption and corrupted politicians and Government officials whose greed and lack of morals and integrity that allow them to play ma-ball.
Secondly business men are corrupt.. They will take short cuts so as not to pay taxes, duties or licenses , permits etc..
Lets face facts if a business man can pay $ 1000.00 to a Government personnel and save $40, 000 on duties etc..each shipment, every three months, and we do the maths, he saves $120.000 dollars whilst paying out only $ 3000.00 dollars..but what many don’t realize its a $120.000.00 dollars that should have gone to the Government coffers ‘.
And when you have such practices that go on in a country unchecked for some times and economies will go under and if that continues for some time,then austerity measures have to be put in place..
For sure they will be increased taxation.. a burden on the working class and those who work and are honest to pay taxes..
And if the money needed is not collected via increased tax, then the only other option is to cut and tighten the purse strings of Government and that means job losses and cuts in services etc that will affect all.
