Godless government and a giggling God

Psalm 2: 1 -4
Why are the nations in an uproar?

And why do the peoples contemplate a vain thing?

The kings of the earth take their stand,
And the rulers sit in counsel together,
Against Jehovah and against His Anointed:

Let us break apart their bonds
And cast their ropes away from us.

He who sits in the heavens laughs;
The Lord has them in derision.

Hebrews 10: 25
Not abandoning our own assembling together,

as the custom with some is,
but exhorting one another;
and so much the more as you see the day drawing near.

I did not abandon my writings but I decided to take a pause to observe the manner in which our government and nation would respond to this sudden explosion of deaths which are attributed to the Covid-19 virus. As I have said before, it is in periods of crisis that the true nature and mettle of the individual and the group emerges.

Our government is showing us clearly that they are rejecting God, which is set out in our Constitution as the foundation of our nation. Worse yet, those who claim that they are “messengers of God” or “servants of God” are conveniently silent and cower in fear of ridicule or loss of benefits or favours or fear of persecution under a law of man?

A Godless Government! Yes, how else can you describe this imposition? Khief and his gang has passed a law which says that:

Section 12. (1) of the SRO 42 published October 5, 2021

All places of religious instruction shall be closed

Then, seemingly to appease their conscience, these fools purport to “give permission to” have electronic or virtual church meetings!

What a joke! How presumptuous of Khief and his gang! What an insult, not just to professing Christians, but to all persons who practice their religion and speak about an Almighty Living God!

Those of us who claim to believe that an Almighty God exists, where are you? This is the time to show your faith in your belief! Where is the so-called Conference of Churches in all of this?

Where are the so-called Christians now, when Khief and his gang pass a law to preside over even our religious conscience!

Section 10. (7) of the SRO 42 published October 5, 2021

(7) The Cabinet may exempt an employee from the application of sub- regulation (1), (2), (3), (4) or (5) or regulation 11 (4), (5) or (6) if, upon written application to the Chief Medical Officer stating his or her objections to vaccination on religious grounds, the Cabinet is satisfied that that employee should be exempted on religious grounds.

Wow! Where did Khief get this power from? This is clearly unconstitutional, discriminatory, political, nonsensical and comical! God is giggling!

Grenada, look out for Him to speak in His anger and burning wrath! We have a nonsensical, tyrannical, oppressive and godless government!

Section 10. (9) (1) of the SRO 42 published October 5, 2021

(aa) the Saint George’s University

A place of secular instruction is an exception and can continue to operate as usual but all places of religious instructions shall be closed

According to Grenadian parlance: AA!!!!
Read the entire section 9 of the new SRO and you will see all the activities that are given priority in Grenada over activities related to religion. Khief is showing that he has no respect for any person practicing their religious beliefs!

I wonder what is the source of this anti-God, atheistic policies! But God is giggling at Khief and his gang!

Let me remind our Grenadian religious leaders that God does not need anyone of them to have His way and to promote His kingdom and program. It’s either we are for Him or against Him!

When the Emperor Nero was hanging, quartering, and burning the disciples of Christ in Rome, they still met regularly. When he was feeding them to the lions as a spectacle they still assembled together and his threats did not deter them!

Church people criticise the way of life in the United States so much, but the church in New York went to court and had a similar law declared as unconstitutional, unfair and discriminatory!

It is as if Khief is blaming the pursuit of religion for this virus that is affecting our nation. Khief and his gang are blaming God so he is trying to punish the people who seek God’s face.

Maybe Khief is blaming God for his own inability to have natural offspring or for some dark desire of his own that he is unable to fulfill.

But, God is giggling! After the giggle comes the storm, be prepared for it!
