beautiful, painful Haiti...


beautiful Haiti...
awashed with the pains of a groining earth.
The labor pains of the beginning of the end of time...

Lord...what do you have in store for such a beautiful island?
From the shores of comfort in Southern California...
where clean water flows.
In the comfort of a warm house,
my choice of fruit, of food...
of entertainment.

Lord...
mocha colored women...
espresso tinted men...
latte stained faces, of children

yearn for some comfort...
for some security...
for the death and destruction to end.

We close our eyes.
We focus only on the beauty of the island.
We see just the sparkling coral beaches
and the hot white sugar colored sand.

We don't see the utter destruction a earthquake
could bring to such a place that was already at the brink.
Some grow tired of the news reporting...
and it's only been one day.

Lord your creation lives with the struggle...
of a beautiful island
awashed with pain
from the
grownings of a sinful earth.

Our prayer is this brings who lives closer to the
saving grace of your Son, Jesus...
so in life or death there will be beauty
in the salvation only the true God can bring.

2010 is the Year of Gods Judgment. Judgment means decision. So the time we are in right now is GOD is going to be making a decision on your life. He is looking at “have you been living according to my word or have you been living according to your own mind and and how you want to do it?” The time we are in is serious because many people have died and will continue to die.
Indeed God passed judgment n Haiti. The event that happened in Haiti however, was not judgment passed on the Haitian People. God passed judgment on the establishment (the existing power structure in society) of Haiti. Proof it was the establishment God was judging, it hit the Haitian Capital City, toppled the presidential palace, and killed the archbishop over Haiti from the Roman Catholic Church. God says the leaders of this people cause them to err. The government is the head and the prophet that teaches lies is the tail.

Isaiah 9: 14: Therefore the LORD will cut off from Israel head and tail, branch and rush, in one day.
15: The ancient and honourable, he is the head; and the prophet that teacheth lies, he is the tail.
16: For the leaders of this people cause them to err; and they that are led of them are destroyed.

In one day he will cut off the head and the tail.
