Oh Mother Ghana! (Part Two)

In attempt to bring the second part of my article 'Oh Mother Ghana!' to the public forum, I would like to size this opportunity to apologize to my readers of not editing my writings first before posting. I hope you will bear with me and forgive me. Also pray with me that I will not be intimidated by any evil forces as it is written I quot "For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ. And we will be ready to punish every act of disobedience once your obedience is complete” (2 Cor. 10 : 3 - 6)

The Bible is not just a book but rather a universal book. It deals with everything that partake to LIFE. Please let me set the record straight! Christianity is not a religion but rather relationship, and it is the power of God. I quot “For the message of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. For it is written: I will destroy the wisdom of the wise; the intelligence of the intelligent I will frustrate. Where is the wise man? Where is the Scholar? Where is the Philosopher of this age? Has not God made foolish the wisdom of the world? For since in the wisdom of God the world through its wisdom did not know him, God was pleased through the foolishness of what was preached to save those who believe. Jews demand miraculous signs and Greeks look wisdom but we preach Christ crucified; a stumbling block to Jews and foolishness to Gentiles but to those God has called, both Jews and Greeks, Christ the power of God and the wisdom of God. For the foolishness of God is wiser than man's wisdom, and the weakness of God is stronger than mans strength†(1 Cor. 1 : 18 - 25)

Where man got lost, after the Creator had finished His work of creation, He commanded man He had created. I quot 'You are free to eat from any tree in the garden; but you must not eat from the tree of knowledge of good and evil, for when you eat of it you will surely die.'(Genesis 2 : 16 - 17). The Creator did not say you will surely be sicked or did He say you will surely be poor but He said you will surely die. Which means he will die in the spirit before in the physical. Oh man man man! It took the Creator so many years before He could executed this redemtion plan for mankind to have spiritual knowledge and to be regenerated. Christ did this for all mankind but mankind still do not get it!

Note this very well, we can not cheat the Creator or manipulate Him. See what He did after He drove man from the garden of Eden. I quot again “The Lord God made garments of skin for Adam and his wife and clothed them. And the Lord God said, the man has now become like us knowing good and evil. He must not be allowed to reach out his hand and take also from the tree of LIFE and eat, and live forever , so the Lord God banished him from the Garden of Eden to work the ground from which he had been taken. After He drove the man out, He placed on the east side of the Garden of Eden Cherublim and a flaming sword flashing back and forth to guard the way to the tree of LIFE”(Genesis 3 : 22 - 24). Which means man and his wife became like animals. No wonder some of us still have that mentality. "The Hidden Treasury" I have found it!Â

"For Africa’s sake I will not keep silent, for Ghana’s sake I will not remain quiet, till her righteousness shines like a blazing dawn , her salvation like a blazing torch.”
