Not Vain After All… Joshua of Ghana

Ecclesiastes 12:13 Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man.

When a rich man excludes God from his life and embarks on a journey seeking only the pleasure, he cannot but conclude at the end of it all that it has been a futile search. He would learn, as King Solomon did, that when the Lord endows a person with enormous wealth, he needs to seek divine counsel on how not to allow the riches to transform into an idol that drowns one in a sea of vanities. Being blessed with such heavenly wisdom allows one to know that life is not about dependence on the emptiness of riches.

Solomon waded through an ocean of riches, swimming in a plenitude of resources that made him take a flight from considerations of eternal value. He was rooted to this world and its deceptive pleasures. He got anything he desired as long as it gave him excitement. He completed his quest for fun with the ultimate in polygamy.

But the joy Solomon looked for through riches and pleasure eluded him. Why? Life resting on itself or on the things of this ephemeral world for existence is meaningless and vain. Real life is about a connection to the Source of life. Living in true joy is about pleasing the Giver of life, not in pleasing oneself. Any venture that discards this view is doomed and bound to experience the tragic frustration.

Therefore, the book of Ecclesiastes concludes fittingly with the instruction that “the whole duty of man” is to “fear God, and keep His commandments”. Those who fear God and honor His laws will not go after pleasure but “seek… first the kingdom of God and His righteousness.” That way, they will not end life being miserable and empty in the midst of plenty. They will see life as God’s possession to only hold in custody, not for carnal pleasure but for His use.

Endless Possibilities in 2020… Joshua of Ghana

Key Verse: Isaiah 43:19 “Behold, I will do a new thing; now it shall spring forth; shall ye not know it? I will even make a way in the wilderness, and rivers in the desert.”

An interesting map is on display in the British Museum in London. It’s an old mariner’s chart, drawn in 1525, outlining the North American coastline and adjacent waters. The cartographer made some intriguing notations on areas of the map that represented regions not yet explored. He wrote: “Here be giants,” “Here be fiery scorpions,” and “Here be dragons.” Eventually, the map came into the possession of Sir John Franklin, a British explorer in the early 1800s. Scratching out the fearful inscriptions, he wrote these words across the map: “HERE IS GOD.”

Prophet Isaiah was comforting Israel in our text after their humiliating experience during their captivity in Babylon and the national shame it brought. He wanted them to understand how impossible it was for them to make progress as a nation without breaking from the past and focusing on the future. He anchored his encouragement on the endless possibilities of God’s promise to do a new thing.

As we begin the New Year, we must forget the impossibilities of the past and focus on what God has promised to do in the future. Though we live in a world that is uncertain and unpredictable, we have a God who knows the end from the beginning. The angry, bitter and painful words spoken against us in the past year must be allowed to pass with it. We must equally bury the old negative thoughts, speak positively to our future and allow God be in charge during moments of our deepest fears.

The failure, disappointment, distress and destruction of the past year will surely give way to progress and success this New Year. God has promised to make everything beautiful for us in this New Year. You have nothing to worry about. Welcome to a brand New Year. Happy New Year!!!

Trend Update: Blood Red Nsukwa River, Ghana, October 2017

Ghana Blood Red

Revelation 16:4 Then the third angel poured out his bowl into the rivers and the springs of waters; and they became blood.

The Revelation 16 verse is late in the order of the seven year Tribulation. The scope and scale are all of the rivers and springs on Earth. Currently, there is no Jewish Temple in Jerusalem, no “peace covenant” with Israel, no 10 nation federation, no two witnesses, and no antichrist. Let’s get that out of the way.

October 9, 2017: The nation of Ghana is now a member of the blood red river club. The location of the Nsukwa River is near Koforidua, Ghana. The location is in southern Ghana.

The blood red river is making quite a commotion. Local tribal leaders and evangelists are arguing about the meaning of the event. Residents of Koforidua responded to the event with “fear and panic”.

Tribal leaders have branded the evangelists as false prophets. Dr. Lawrence Tetteh and Bishop Yaw Adu are “false prophets who are only interested in causing fear and panic to dupe people.”

The Evangelist Dr. Tetteh for his part is casting demons out of the river. He states the event was caused by the sin of local people.

“We cast every demon; we say Koforidua shall be peaceful. There will not be bloodshed; there will not be anything evil; the people of Koforidua will be blessed. As we see this thing in the river, the river is looking like blood. Whatever it is and wherever it comes from, we bless it in Jesus’ name, Amen!” -Dr. Lawrence Tetteh.

Tribal leader Baffuor Tutu Boateng Nyantakyi stated this has nothing to do with the festival of Akwantukesie. Apparently there are festival rituals involving blood from humans and animals… 

“It has nothing to do with the Akwantukesie that we are going to celebrate. It has nothing to do with human blood; it has nothing to do with goat blood.” -Baffuor Tutu Boateng Nyantakyi

Police Chief Inspector Ebenezer Sekyi of the local law enforcement indicated tie-and-dye powder polluted the river. A local manufacturer was to blame. Investigation into the incident continues. Further actions by local officials are pending.

Videos and pictures of the event are provided by locals in the link below.

The event in Ghana is not the fulfillment of Revelation 16:4. We are not in the tribulation, The Great Day of the Lord.

Regardless of how the event happened, the trend continues…
