A Global Farmer: a Nature Farmer turn his attention on the African Continent
In Africa: A Latent Capacity to Feed All the World's People
"For God So Loved the World That He Gave"
Giving is a Powerful Concept. In a book called the Gospel of Luke, Chapter 6, verse 38, reads, "give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again." However, I encourage us all to give because it good to give. It is right to give. Giving makes us better, and the world better.
You may note that I started my writing by teaching out of the New Testament of the Christian Holy Bible. However, this discourse is being written for all people, in all Religious Faiths, all over of the World. Using multiple religious texts, from different cultures and lands help me to communicate my thought, or ideas to all kind of religious believers.
I have talked a bit about "giving" and now I would like to mention Abraham. The great scholars that I have studied under in some of the best universities in the U.S.A. taught me to think of Jews, Christians and Muslims as being members of three Abrahamic Religions. They, my professors, wanted to convince me of what they considered a fact, that Jews, Christians and Muslims do worship the same God. One could say that our Gods are the same God that Abraham worshiped.
The QUR'AN, verse (3:95), reads, "Say: Allah speaks truth. So follow the religion of Abra-ham, the upright. He was not of the idolaters."
I do not have to convince anyone that Abraham has a respected place among Jewish and Christian believers.
I thank God, at we have the one thing that we all can hold fast to, "that Abraham has a special place and meaning in our belief systems.
As a global farmer contemplating the achievement of great accomplishments on the continent of Africa, I need to know we all will work together to create a system where we can provide enough food to feed all the people of Africa, and many others in the global community, if need be. This is my hope.
Being a Global Farmer, and a Scholar of some renown, it is necessary to see myself as one, born into the world to help all people, regardless of where they are, or how they are. I have no enemies, as I see it, in my own mine.
Jesus said it best in the Gospel of Matthew, the 5th chapter, the 43 through the 48th verses, when he uttered, "You have heard that it has been said, You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.
But I say unto you this day,
Love your enemies,
bless them that curse you,
do good to them that hate you,
and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you;
That you may be children of your Father
which is in heaven:
for he makes his sun to rise on the evil
and on the good, alike,
and sends rain on the just
and on the unjust.
For if you love them which love you,
what reward do you have?
Do not even tax-collectors do the same?
And if you greet your brethren only,
what more do you do than others?
Do not even Tax-collectors even greet their own brethren?
Be you therefore perfect,
even as your Father, which is in heaven, is also perfect."
Now this is the attitude and mindset that I will take with me, to the African continent, when our God decides to deliver me there.
Who are my enemies? You heard me say that I have no enemies. But believe it or not, I have family members, even some who are close to me, sharing blood-lineages, that is, the same ancestors, yet the despise me. They hate me. And they are so ignorant that they fail to know that I have powers, from God, that allows me to sense those who hate me. Yet, I love them just the same. Yes, I love even "two-faced" family members who hate me.
Jesus, himself had to deal with the same kind of hate. Remember his utterances in the Gospel of Matthew, the 13th chapter, the 57th verse, "A prophet is not without honor, except in his own country, and in his own house." Other texts read, "without honor in his own hometown, in his own country and in his own house." What a pity, the shame of it all! But it okay. We must love, even love those who hate us. This especially applies to a global farmer likened unto myself.
Now since people have a better understanding of who I am and why I was born into the world, I am prepared to start teaching some Agribusiness in Africa. It will take single-mindedness and a sense of purpose to achieve our African Mission. I am not alone. There are great, African-born men and women who are walking upon this "Pathway of Righteousness" with me. We are working, together, even now, to obtain the financial resources required to support, successfully, an adventure such as this.
I will be writing more, later.
As we go, Peace.
