  1. We are always desperately boasting of achievements related to the low-hanging fruit by society. Why aren't our secondary schools making much more noises related to competition in technology, science and mathematics?

    Calypso, today, is basically entertainment. If cleverly created lyrics make us laugh or help us cope with adversity, then that's a plus. But the social and human conditions still persist. They morph into seemingly new conditions. But these are not solved with Calypso. That is even when the calypso highlights or brings to light or calls our attention some social injustice.

    Our educational institutions continue to fail us. They are not creating citizens ready to undertake the uncertainties of today's cruel world of disruptive behaviours. Regarding this, the crime rates in our cities speak volumes.

    Like Nero, we might sing and dance whilst Rome burns. But left unchecked and not being technically educated to cope, for our young population, we are making certain that "Winter is coming".

    Persecution of his Bride due to ignorance.
    I Proclaim on the rooftop that the “King is coming”! I announce to the ends of the earth, that the “King is coming”. And that the days of Noah are here. “Prepare ye the way of the Lord and make straight his paths.” Tell all the world that I am coming back soon. “I am coming for those who have laid their burdens down”. In the name of Jesus Christ, Amen.
    The father says: A lighthouse shines its lights no matter how many ships are in the midst. You are never alone; I am never early, and I am never late. I am your Hyah, I am omnipresent, the ever existing one. I have always been, and I will always be. All of creation, anything and everything that has ever been created exist inside of me. Outside of me, there is nothing that is created. The veil was parted because of my sacrifice, but very soon, it will be completely lifted and those whose lives are completely surrendered to me, those who abide deeply in me, will know as I know, and their spiritual eyes will be completely opened. There is just a moment of time as you know it before I will bring back the first fruits of my creation into harmony with me, as the culmination of all things commences.
    So, what I am saying, is that you who have given me your lives, your heart, your everything and have accepted me as your king and Messiah, you rule and reign already with me in my kingdom. You are my co-heirs, my friends, my sons, my daughters because this is the truth, this means that we are never apart, you in me, I in you. We are one. Because we are one and never separate; regardless of what I ask of you, it matters not the external circumstances you are placed in. In the outer-most parts of the universe, I am there. In the deepest depths of the earth and sea, I am there. Out to the farthest galaxy known to man, I am there. I AM. You were fashioned and purposed for a very important reason, each of you, with your own set of tasks that make up the design I have for your lives.
    * These are exclusively the words of –Yahuwah and his son Yahushua Mashiach.
    God the Father, the Great King wants his name to be promoted in the four corners of the earth. Repent now; get baptized and receive the gift of the Holy Spirit, those of you who are in the valley of decision. Do not procrastinate any longer but go ahead and choose God, for when the door and the books are closed no one will be able to enter in. God is sending warnings after warnings. We are in the End Times and he does not want ANYONE to Perish. Time is running out, get saved now while you have time. He is the only way to salvation. Amend your ways and you will be allowed to remain in the land. Let those who have ears to hear and those who have eyes to see. Repent now! Remain strong, be bold, courageous and steadfast in your faith.
    The Lord is saying that: there are people in the churches, in the pulpits, the choir, the church boards, (church in general), who claim to know him but do not have a personal relationship with him, his spirit does not dwell in their hearts and they need to learn how to build a relationship with him, so he can dwell in their hearts. Repent, pray without ceasing, read his word daily and speak to him as your best friend or father. Do not hesitate to do this as his judgments have already begun. The end of everything has begun.
    Credit to Brother Shomrim, may God bless and protect you my, brother.
    - God’s messenger.

    • This one is suffering from brain damage or is perhaps is an ET. Nothing here relates to the calypso. Only the insane, the mentally disturbed and those suffering from hallucinations are so richly blessed.
