Part III Greetings in the name of our Lord Yeshua, who was, and is and is to come.
If you have been following this piece, you will probably recall that we had come to the latter portions of Yeshua's “first commandment” to Israel. It is written, “And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment” (Mark 12:30, KJV). So then, in Part 1 of this series we looked at the Christian standard in the Republic of Ghana along with what it means to love God with all of one's heart. Next, we examined what it means to love God with all of one's soul.
Let us now move on to the matter of what it means to love God with the mind. Before we do this, let us recall our kristometric equations: 1. Corruption + Bribery + Ghana = Injustice in Ghana = Injustice in the Church in Ghana = Corruption + Bribery + the Church in Ghana. Likewise, 2. Integrity + Justly Earned Wages + Ghana = Justice in Ghana = Justice in the Church in Ghana = Integrity + Justly Earned Wages + the Church in Ghana. Now let us go to the Dominion of Canada for this satellite broadcast of the concluding portions of Kristometrics – A Challenge to the Ghanaian Christian. In the Aramaic – the language that Yeshua is widely reported to have communicated in – the word for mind is “bal”. The word bal is synonymous with the “heart” of man. However, the mind of man is more than the inner part of an individual. The mind is the outer window through which an individual sees the world around them. From this description, it should be quite clear that the mind's outward gaze is subject to the spiritual and emotional climate within an individual. So then, the command to love God with all of one's mind is really admonition to view or see as God sees. But how can man who is often corrupt and depraved in understanding see things as God sees them? Biblically speaking, this is not a difficult question to answer. So let me proceed to do just that. How an individual sees the world around them is a matter of what type of information they regularly take in: essentially what they believe. If for example, you listen to music that exclaims “It's all about the Benjamins baby” and you accept this, then that is exactly what the state of your mind will be…all about the Benjamins baby! This truth of how the inner state of man influences one's outer world view is perfectly in line with Yeshua's statement “The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness” (Matthew 6:22-23). One whose eye is focused singly upon that which is in harmony with the teachings of God will be given to doing that which is right. Not only will they do what is right, they will also see things rightly – perhaps even judge rightly.
Yes, the mind is that window through which we see the world. And human beings see with their eyes, the eye gate being one of the five gates leading into or out of the soul. So if your soul is filled with interesting perspectives on the world, say, perhaps that there is no God, it should not be difficult to see why some of the supposedly learned men of Ghana are advocating for the legalisation of prostitution in the country. They have no concept of the spiritual implications of such a governance policy. In other words, they are blind to the consequences. Such advocacy on the part of the supposedly “learned” should enable us to see why Ghana's academic community is fraught with corruption, pride and arrogance: the kind that makes vice-chancellors interfere in the marking of their children's scripts. After all, many of these “professors” have rejected the highest truth in existence; they have refused to acknowledge that there is a living God. It is written, “The fool has said in his heart, There is no God. Corrupt are they, and have done abominable iniquity: there is none that doeth good” (Psalm 54:1). Oh what a woeful thing it is when fools teach and rule a nation!
…We now interrupt this satellite broadcast to bring you Divine Lamentations of the Republic of Ghana.
Oh, how Nyankopon would have loved to gather the inhabitants of Ogyakrom under his wings and inspire a generation with witty innovative technologies. But they would have none of it. And so the leaders must settle on stealing to send their children abroad. Tell me which one is easier? To download directly from the HG drive (Holy Ghost drive) into the human spirit or to bear the consequences of the iniquity of theft to send the children abroad for three letters: M, S and c? Again, which one of you has known the mind of the living God? It may very well be that the black star was raised up for such a time as this - to show the nations of Africa the way to the house of the Lord and to re-gather from one part of the earth, those of the ancient house of Israel, those who were scattered to the four corners of the earth. You may hear the rest of these Divine Lamentations of the Republic of Ghana during the Sermon at the Aflao Border. Ambassador, feel free to invite Mr. Gnassingbe if you so wish – the Lord has a very important message for him.
We now return to our regular broadcast…
Okay, so you've got the point. But you will notice that I have not answered those very important questions about Ghana that usually come up at this turn of the article. And so an asking I shall ask! 1. Why do some Ghanaian politicians believe that they can continue to pillage, burn and destroy the people of their nation without consequence? 2. Why is it becoming increasingly fashionable for the Ghanaian academic to openly denounce spiritual truth, yes even the name of the living God? 3. Why, despite the many postsecondary educated persons from Ghana living abroad and at home is Ghana still so dependent on foreign aid? 4. What led to the considerable lapse of time between the last article in this series and this one?
Deviwo (children), it is written, “A man shall eat good by the fruit of his mouth: but the soul of the transgressors shall eat violence” (Proverbs 13:2). Many lies have been spoken in the name of good governance in Ogyakrom. Therefore, let the souls of them who have spoken lies eat their fill of violence. For the wrath of the living God is kindled against the high and mighty; that they would truly know that their might is but a puff of smoke, here today, gone tomorrow. Let us now proceed to answer the questions posed in the former paragraph. For those who would not mind a free Evhe (Ewe) lesson, this is when some in Evhenyigba (Evheland) would say “eblu gidiiiiiiiiiiiii!!”
It was written:
1. Why do some Ghanaian politicians believe that they can continue to pillage, burn and destroy the people of their nation without consequence? Answer: Do they not know that it is written, “it shall not be well with the wicked” (Ecclesiastes 8:13)? They have not believed the truth and so they will be utterly disappointed. For the way of the living God is justice, judgement and equity.
2. Why is it becoming increasingly fashionable for the Ghanaian academic to openly denounce spiritual truth, yes even the name of the living God? Answer: It is because they have forgotten the history of creation. Dare I remind those of the mathematical persuasion that even the foundations of modern calculus pertain to “Kepler's Laws of Planetary Motion”. And that Kepler himself believed in the living God. Of course, there are numerous examples of great thinkers who acknowledged their source of inspiration as being none other than the living God. The increasing arrogance of these modern Ghanaian academics, which emboldens them to denounce spiritual truth, signifies a spiritual process of judgement. For when the heart is allowed to be lifted up, this is preparation for abasement. Pride it is said, goes before a fall. It is also written of the ancient king Nebuchadnezzar “Now I Nebuchadnezzar praise and extol and honour the King of heaven, all whose works are truth, and his ways judgment: and those that walk in pride he is able to abase” (Daniel 4:37). So let it be unto these academics as it was unto Nebuchadnezzar. Let the judgement of the Lord prevail!
3. Why, despite the many postsecondary educated persons from Ghana living abroad and at home is Ghana still so dependent on foreign aid? Answer: But don't you know? Chew and pour!! This very day, may this thing be known by them; that which they have chewed has made them bitter!
4. What led to the considerable lapse of time between the last article in this series and this one? Answer: The mercy of the living God endureth forever. Repent! For the kingdom of heaven is at hand. As it was in the days of Ezekiel the prophet, where the people coined the proverb saying, “The days are prolonged, and every vision faileth”. So also have some of the leaders of Ghana whispered: the words of that young man are spoken in vain. It is written of Solomon the preacher, “To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven” (Ecclesiastes 3:1). I give you to know this day that there is a time for repentance, and a time for mercy…one for judgment too.
Again we interrupt your regular broadcast to bring you this special report called Judgement from the Kingdom of Heaven.
Halleluiah in the heavenly highest! Samuel Acquah, your CD El Shadai rocks. I would like to dedicate track number 3 to the leaders of the Republic of Ghana. El Shadai, be magnified and may the works of the wicked be brought low in your sight. May your just judgements be visited upon those whose ways have sought to oppress the masses. May you commence a sweeping judgment amidst the lot of Ghana's political leaders. This day do I pray that the wrath which is stored up concerning the events of months passed be poured out in perfect measure. That which has been measured to the masses (even those measured in secret) let it be meted again – shaken, stirred and running over into the laps of those who have meted it.
That the leaders of Ghana would fear the name of the living God, first my Lord, I give into your hands Nana Akufo-Addo, Minister of Foreign Affairs. Lord, you know how this man has worked feverishly behind the scenes to wrought iniquity in the Republic of Ghana. And even when the servant of the Lord confronted him on matters of his not speaking that which is truthful he chose not to repent but maintained a stout heart against that which was spoken to him. He considered not that the words spoken came from a prophet of the living God and that it is written concerning the prophet, “Surely the Lord GOD will do nothing, but he revealeth his secret unto his servants the prophets” (Amos 3:7). Therefore Lord, let that which you have revealed be fulfilled! And let the olive tree and the candlestick be free to declare your judgements in the earth. For this thing do I beckon that your judgement would go forth in Ogyakrom! For his dubious dealings with leaders in foreign nations, Lord may your judgement come. That he sought to limit the rural folk from the judicial process with future iniquity in as his motive; Lord, let your judgement come! For working to enable the enacting of laws and policy that will favour control of Ghanaian land by foreigners while he was Justice Minister, Lord may your judgment come! That he enabled those whose destiny is tied to the beast to have their way in Ghana; Lord, let your judgement come! Lord, that Ghana would know that your seers truly hear from you and that they see that which you reveal to them, yes, even the secret boardroom meetings abroad. Expose him my Lord and let that which is fit according to His will be upon his own head in good measure. Amen!
We now return to our regular broadcast. We conclude this satellite broadcast of Kristometrics – A Challenge to the Ghanaian Christian (Part 3) with a few words in recognition of our sponsors. This broadcast comes to you live from the Dominion of Canada and is brought to you courtesy of Holy Ghost Inspirations - your only source of divine revelation. I have been your host, my name is Apostle Mawuetornam Dugbazah. I leave you with these few words.
The mind is the window through which we see the world. When the soul is inspired by truth, the human spirit in turn is permitted to discern that which is truth and all is made clear. When the soul is filled with lies, then the human spirit is made blind. What shall we say then? Is God the author of lies? God forbid! For of God it is written, “God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?” (Numbers 23:19). His precious Spirit leads into all truth. And this is the truth concerning Ghana. The Christlike measure of Ghana is the direct result of the state of its leaders. Therefore, if Ghana must come to that place of prominence and truly fulfill the destiny for which this nation was allowed to come into being, then its nationals must take care to love God with all their heart, soul, mind and strength. The strength of the feeble flesh is increased as the heart (spirit), soul and mind are fully submitted to God. The word of God will light the way.
