Over 700 years before the birth of Jesus, the prophet Micah wrote, “You, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for me one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from old, from ancient days, [days of eternity]. He will stand and shepherd his flock in the strength of the Lord God Yahweh, in the majesty of the name of the Lord his God.” [Micah 5: 2 & 4]

This is a Messianic prophesy. Jesus fulfilled this prophesy when he was born in Bethlehem, the birthplace of King David. [Matthew 2:1&2] But how could this prophesy come to reality, if Mary and Joseph lived in Nazareth? Luke 2:1, 3 & 6, records, “In those days Caesar Augustus issued a decree that a census should be taken of the entire Roman world. And everyone went to his own town to register. While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born.”

Jesus had already existed with God the Father in eternity past, as the Word. [John 1: 1-4] In John 1: 14, the Gospel writer declares, “The Word became flesh, and made His dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only Begotten Son who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.”

Jesus had the prophecy of Micah in mind when He proclaimed, “I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. I know my sheep, and my sheep know me.  [John 10: 11, 14]

Anyone with knowledge of the Jewish scriptures would easily recognize that Jesus of Nazareth was the promised Messiah! So, with all the evidence before you now, do you accept Jesus as your Savior and King?

Another Beg-A-Ton, Belizeans are fed up with Wade Print E-mail

louis wade.jpg - 54.76 KbBelizeans were on Saturday, again treated to the circus of Plus TV publicly begging for it to stay afloat. The principal of the TV station shamelessly paraded himself and others to beg from the Belizean public in order for their financial expenses could be met.

Now the event was not any that had any real value to anyone other than for Louis “Beg-a-tonto” Wade’s selfish yearnings to keep spewing political propaganda on his tv station. Day in and day out this so called pastor attacks any and every initiative by the UDP government in a relentless manner. So rabid is he that his advertisers that he used to depend on a few years ago (a time when he seemed impartial) have all left him. He is now left without any financing. He is left to do a yearly beg-a-ton where he whines and pleas to the public to help him with his expenses.

Now anyone who looked on this Saturday saw the actions of a desperate political operative who has lost all shame. Now most of those who looked could only tolerate a few minutes of his begging session. Many were so disgusted by the man’s actions that they must have thought about doing unthinkable things to their television sets. Yet there were others who must have thought, why was it that Wade has sunk so low? After all if he actually had a product that was marketable he would have to curtail on the amount of advertisers who would be lining up and rushing to place their ads on his television programs. The truth is that what Wade spews on his morning show every day is pure crap that the business community and advertisers simply just want to stay away from.

At the end of hours and hours and hours of whining Wade said he had raised over 50 thousand dollars. Well we really hope that all those who pledged actually come up with the money or the Belizean public will very shortly be treated to another beg-a-ton and the political tirades of a man who is insistent on tormenting the viewers even on Saturday.

Historic Structure Destroyed by Flames Print E-mail

One of the last few colonial style treasures went up in smoke on Sunday morning, November 27. Residents of the Fort Street area reports seeing wild flames flying out of the kitchen window of the Chateau Caribbean Hotel building around 8 on Sunday morning. The fire quickly spread to the ceiling and second floor of the aged structure. By the time fire officials arrived on the scene there was not much they could do to save the building. The mission at that point was to contain the blaze and prevent damages to other iconic structures nearby. At the conclusion of the fire fight, the second floor had collapsed and the original structure was completely destroyed.

There were no casualties, fortunately. However, guests were rattled after being rushed out of the burning building. Many were having or getting ready for breakfast and that was interrupted by instruction to flee for life. Several people lost valuable property but the preservation of life is goal number one.

According to the Museum of Belize, the building that housed the Chateau Caribbean was built in the early 1900s. It served several purposes with one of the most memorable being Dr. C.J. McCleary’s Holden Memorial Hospital. Holden Memorial was established in the late 1950s and is considered to be the first fully equipped privately owned hospital in Belize. It survived numerous tropical cyclones and was considered a national treasure.
