Pat Robertson Headlines

Pat Robertson has made headline news again.  Did you hear what he said or just what the media said that he said? I listened to him via the internet from the 700 club, instead of choosing to watch Youtube, where the video might have been butchered to distort what he said or how he said it,  and then went on a history hunt.  Below I have linked what I discovered.

 Unfortunately because most people choose to listen to the media and not go investigate for themselves, the story probably has been distorted or misunderstood. 

Pat Robertson was blaming what took place in Haiti in 1791 as the cause of why the earthquake took place.  If people Christians remember Ephesians 6:12:  (King James Version) 12For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

AND  they would do a little searching, they would realize Pat Robertson's statement is correct. 
Matthew 11:15 (King James Version)
15He that hath ears to hear, let him hear

Was he trying to be hurtful?  NO!  He was trying to give understanding as to why the earthquake was allowed to happen. 

Did GOD cause this earthquake?  NO...but HE allowed it to happen. 

WHY?  Because the people of Haiti have practiced witchcraft and voodoo for decades.

That's pretty harsh, you're thinking...

NO, it's not.  It's not any different than you or I going outside with an umbrella full of holes!  What would happen if you go out in the rain.  You get wet.  Why?  Because you have holes letting rain go through the umbrella and you get soaked.  It's the same with GOD's hand of protection. If we choose not to follow GOD, HIS hand of protection is removed. Look at the children of Israel.  How often they turned their backs on GOD.  HE simply would remove HIS protection from them when they did that.  GOD is a loving and GENTLE  GOD.  HE will NOT force HIMSELF on people.  Therefore, HE has simply removed HIMSELF from the people.  Remember what the Bible says?
Matthew 6:24 (King James Version)

24No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammonHaiti was trying to serve GOD and satan.  It simply can not be done. 
Try walking in disobedience for a day, and serving's not pleasant!  BTDT!

A good read on GOD's hand of protection is here

Many people won't agree with me, I'm sure.  But if you look into the history of Haiti and Voodoo, you will discover that Haiti allowed satan to come and reign in their country.

The good news is there are many Christians in Haiti today, and many missionaries and other Christian organizations leading men and women to Christ daily!  I believe a great revival is going to take place in Haiti, and they will turn to GOD after this destruction the devil has caused.  I'm lifting up the people of Haiti, praying  for those that lost loved ones, those missing, those that don't know the LORD that they will be comforted by HIM and come to know HIM through this tragic event.  What the devil meant for evil, GOD will use it for HIS glory!!!

Blessings until next time!
