first_imgMany Liberians claim to be depending on God to protect them from the outbreak of the Ebola Virus, but are on the other hand holding unto mindsets and attitudes completely opposite to the mindset and attitudes God wants them to have towards such a contagious and infectious disease.Many believe they don’t need to take any extra care because God will protect them. Others believe that there is no need to do so because God has already decided who will live and who will die. These beliefs, mindsets and attitudes are completely false, misleading and are lies from the pit of hell… meant to ignorantly destroy the lives of those who hold such thinking and put the lives of many others at risk.Sickness and Diseases did not originate from God; they are the result of man’s SIN (disobedience, negligence, carelessness, failure to follow instructions, wickedness, etc.) that has shortened his life and made his body vulnerable to all kinds of weaknesses and external factors… including that of deadly viruses, that eventually leads to his death (Genesis 2 & 3). Because of disobedience, God may remove aspects of His protective covering from over a people. When this happens, they become exposed to afflictions like sicknesses and diseases… until they learn. (Num.12).Sickness and Diseases do not bring glory to God. God is glorified when we are healed, but He is not in the business of afflicting people just to receive glory from healing them. God is totally against sickness and diseases because they destroy His beloved creation and hinder His perfect will for man. This is why scripture says He anointed Jesus Christ to heal sickness and diseases (Matt. 8:23, Matt. 4:18). Though man will return to the dust, God’s preferred will is that he lives a full healthy life… to a ripe old age (Gen. 25:8, Psa. 90:10).We must know that when it comes to protecting us, God never leaves us out of it. In order for us to demonstrate how serious we are about our own protection, God gives us protective guidelines and principles to follow. These guidelines and principles become our part of the responsibility in His effort to protect us.In the case of infectious and contagious diseases for example, God has given guidelines and principles in His Word to follow in preventing their spread among people. Instructions like washing hands, feet, entire body and clothes are all common biblical cleanliness/health instructions. Other instructions like (1) reporting oneself to health authorities if suspected of having signs of a deadly infectious disease, (2) being tested by medical authorities, (3) being confined or quarantined if tested positive (4) burning of infected clothing and materials, etc., are all given by God to us as our part of the responsibility in His effort to protect us from such highly infectious diseases. Praying for the sick, for health workers and authorities, for the communities, for our families and our own selves are all further instructions.At the back are instructions (guidelines and principles) found in the Book of Leviticus, given by God outlining how the society and health authorities in Israel were to prevent the spread of Leprosy, a disease that was also highly infectious. These measures were given as principles to also be used in case of the outbreak of other similar infectious and contagious diseases like Ebola.When you read those verses of scripture, you will realize that God is saying He expects us to play the natural role given us by Him for our own protection… and He will play the supernatural role regarding our protection.Biblical Laws (Principles) Concerning Dreaded Skin Diseases (Or Highly Infectious/Contagious Diseases)The below passages outline guidelines that God gave Israel to follow in containing the infectious disease of Leprosy. It was also written to give us a clear picture of the type of attitude and actions God wants us to take towards highly infectious diseases… including that of EBOLA. (The comments in bold in parenthesis were added for broader understanding.)LEVITICUS 13:1-52 & 14:54-571 The Lord gave Moses and Aaron these regulations (guidelines & principles). 2 If anyone has a sore on his skin or a boil or an inflammation (or signs & symptoms of a disease) which could develop into a dreaded skin disease (or a highly infectious/contagious disease like Ebola), he shall be brought to the Aaronite priest (to the hospital to see a Doctor). 3 The priest (the Doctor) shall examine the sore (do a test), and if the hairs in it have turned white and the sore appears to be deeper than the surrounding skin (or if, as a result of the test a highly infectious virus like the Ebola virus is discovered), it is a dreaded skin disease (or a highly infectious/contagious disease), and the priest (the Doctor) shall pronounce the person unclean (or infected). 4 But if the sore is white and does not appear to be deeper than the skin round it and the hairs have not turned white (if the signs & symptoms appear but it is not yet certain of what it is), the priest (Doctor) shall isolate (confine) the person for seven days (for a period of time). 5 The priest (Doctor) shall examine him again on the seventh day (after a period of time), and if in his opinion the sore looks the same and has not spread, he shall isolate (confine) him for another seven days (period of time). 6 The priest (Doctor) shall examine him again on the seventh day, and if the sore has faded and has not spread, he shall pronounce him ritually clean; it is only a sore. The person shall wash his clothes and be ritually clean. 7 But if the sore spreads after the priest (Doctor) has examined him and pronounced him clean, he must appear before the priest (Doctor) again. 8 The priest (Doctor) will examine him again, and if it has spread (the virus is present), he shall pronounce him unclean; it is a dreaded skin disease (highly infectious/contagious disease)…45 A person who has a dreaded skin disease (a highly infectious/contagious disease) must wear torn clothes, leave his hair uncombed, cover the lower part of his face, and call out, “Unclean, unclean!” 46 He remains unclean as long as he has the disease, and he must live outside the camp, away from others (until of course his disease is healed. This does not mean the sick should be neglected or abandoned to die. It rather means they should be identified, separated and well cared for to get well).47 When there is mildew (or signs of contamination) on clothing whether wool or linen, 48 or on any piece of linen or wool cloth or on leather or anything made of leather, 49 if it is greenish or reddish, it is a spreading mildew and must be shown (or turned over) to the priest (or Doctor). 50 The priest (Doctor) shall examine it and put the object away for seven days (a period of time). 51 He shall examine it again on the seventh day, and if the mildew has spread, the object is unclean (contaminated). 52 The priest shall burn (destroy) it, because it is a spreading mildew (or infectious disease) which must be destroyed by fire……Chapter 14:54-5754 These are the laws about dreaded skin diseases (highly infectious diseases); 55-56 sores, boils, or inflammations (including symptoms of Ebola); and about mildew in clothes or houses. 57 These laws determine when something is unclean and when it is clean.NOTE: God is saying He expects us to play the natural role given us by Him for our protection, and He will play the supernatural role. To those who have ears, eyes, and minds, let them heed what the LORD is saying to His people. If we do this, divine protection is guaranteed.WARNING: Those who have chosen to take God’s instructions for granted, thereby directly or indirectly putting their lives and the lives of others at risk, keep in mind that God is watching you. Beware that what you sow today, you may reap tomorrow… when you think all is well with you.

first_imgAs the year 2018 commences, former Private Sector Commission (PSC) Chairman Ramesh Dookhoo is optimistic that Government will further reduce some of the tax measures implemented on key sectors during 2017.In a recent interview with Guyana Times, he noted that investments have slowed owing to a lack of confidence in the economy.Private Sector stakeholder Ramesh DookhooGovernment has, over the last two years, sought to broaden the tax base to capture wider sections of society, especially those in the manufacturing sector. However, industry members continue to decry challenges from high manufacturing costs and reduced earnings as a result of the hike in taxes. Dookhoo, a prominent stakeholder in the Private Sector, expressed that these measures were especially hurting the forestry, mining and even the retail sector.He told this publication that with the many engagements that Finance Minister Winston Jordan has had with Private Sector operatives, including the Guyana Manufacturing and Services Association (GMSA), he remains hopeful that the tax measures will be reversed.“I’m optimistic because the Minister has reversed a number of things from before, having recognised the serious impact that [the taxation] had on businesses,” Dookhoo pointed out.This newspaper understands that forestry experts have a delegation that has been engaging the Finance Ministry’s technical team in attempting to alter several of these measures. In fact, when the 2018 Budget was presented to the National Assembly in early December, it included the exemption of Value Added Tax (VAT) on logs and rough lumber which was a reversal of one of several measures implemented in 2017.Dookhoo is of the view that it is only a matter of time before VAT is removed on other measures, having observed the noted uncertainties that exist in the local economy.“You saw a cry from the gold miners regarding the levels of productivity in their business – that was also addressed by Minister Jordan, [but] there’s a lot of uncertainty in the economy. I heard the head of the banker’s association say recently that $30 billion of loans have been approved to do projects, but the borrowers are not drawing down the money because of apprehension [towards] the economy,” he asserted.He further noted that it was this apprehension which was contributing to reduced investments.Meanwhile, GMSA President Shyam Nokta recently highlighted that the 2017 Budget adversely impacted on the country’s manufacturing sector, saying that it caused a reduction in cash flow for businesses. He further indicated that measures such as the recategorising of zero & standard rated items and the inclusion of VAT on forestry products and electricity have affected the growth of the sector.last_img read more

first_imgNkumba Marines exchange ideas during a past encounter. Courtesy photo.Nkumba Marine’s elusive return to the demanding confines of the top tier National Basketball league has been a jarring experience at least if their frail run of form is put into consideration.The Timothy Odeke-coached side has struggled severely, losing six games and wining only two (2-6 run), a poor run that has left them languishing in the lower echelons of the league table.And there hardly any signs that suggest their fortunes are about to change soon with a date with a buoyant UCU Canons side tonight at YMCA. It will require efforts of monumental proportions for Timothy Odeke’s charges to upset an heightened level of opposition in a stature of on-form UCU Canons.Marines’ problems were further compounded when star forward Malvin Midaki limped through the closing stages of the game against KIU Titanson Sunday, and if not passed fit, then the Nkumba based side will seek inspiration from Brain Sivachi and Wilson Otweyo. The pair, who are supposedly meant to be the virtual cogs in The Marines’ sinking ship have failed to get their mojo back putting in below bar performances thus far.Red Hot CanonsAfter losing three of their opening six games, The Mukono-based side have gone on wining spree of up to four games in succession negotiating their way past UPDF Tomhawk, ,JKL Dolphins, Falcons and Ndejje University Angels. Admittedly, the three losses came against Unbeaten Pemba Warriors, and the pair of title hopefuls KIU Titans and Betway Power. Canons, who boast a 6-3 run will be desperate to win and take their winning streak to five games.In Brian Namake, Fadhili Chuma and Joas Maheta, Coach Nick Natuhereza boasts the ammunitions to inflict damage to a feeble Marines side, while Guard Stephen Wundi and small forward Jonathan Egau, who are averaging 14.1 and 13 points respectively can also add poise and guile to a seemingly strong Canons roaster..Wednesday @ YMCA Nkumba Lady Marines VS UCU Lady Conons@6pm.UCU Canons Vs Nkumba Marines @8pmCommentslast_img read more

first_img15 May 2013 People using protests as a cover for criminal activities or for incitement to violence will be identified, arrested and charged, State Security Minister Siyabonga Cwele warned on Tuesday. Tabling his department’s budget vote in Parliament in Cape Town, Cwele said the country’s Constitution gave South Africans the right to protest peacefully. However, while most protests in South Africa were peaceful, some were violent and disruptive, leading to intimidation and loss of life. “Let us be up front and loudly state that in terms of our law, it is a crime to incite or participate in acts of violence during protests. Both the organisers and participants must take full responsibility for the consequences of such violent action, including destruction of life and property. As a state we can no longer tolerate such abuse,” Cwele said. Referring to President Jacob Zuma’s 2009 State of the Nation Address, Cwele said the President had called on the security service to restore the authority of the state. “The whole security cluster is increasing its capacity to focus on this scourge. We now have a plan and are ready to deploy the full capacity of the democratic state to identify, prevent or arrest and swiftly prosecute those who undermine our Bill of Rights by engaging in acts of violence,” Cwele said. He called on all South Africans to join hands with the security forces and law enforcement agencies to ensure that “these perpetrators” did not prevail.Illegal trading Cwele also told Parliament that the illicit economy, such as illegal trading in cigarettes, illegal mining, copper theft, and trading in stolen goods, was undermining South Africa’s real economy. This illicit trade obstructed economic development, undermined government policy and the rule of law. It also supported corrupt practices, funded organized crime, and undermined investment in legitimate manufacturing, employment and innovation. “The sale of illicit cigarettes and tobacco products, has, for example, increased over the past four years. By the end of 2011 the illegal sale of cigarettes was more than 25 percent of market sales in South Africa. The estimated loss to the South African fiscus is R4-billion in unpaid taxes per year.” In addition, retailers lost R7-billion in turnover and R750-million in annual profits. In employment terms, this meant the loss of almost 10 000 jobs in the tobacco industry over the past 10 years. An interdepartmental task team comprising members of the SA Police Service, SA Revenue Service, Asset Forfeiture Unit, Financial Intelligence Centre and National Prosecuting Authority has been formed to deal with this, Cwele said. “We expect to see positive results as soon as a result of this intervention.” Source: SAnews.gov.zalast_img read more
