Durant prays for seven years of plenty

As a religious leader, the founder and Senior Pastor of Restoration Ministries David Durant is familiar with the biblical reference to seven years of famine which followed seven years of plenty in Egypt.

And Durant, a Government Senator, is praying and preaching that 2016 will see an end to Barbados’ own seven years of famine and the beginning of its seven years of plenty.

The prominent preacher said that having experienced “seven lean years”, he expected a more productive, progressive and prosperous Barbados in the New Year.

“I really sense in my heart, and it is my prayer, that we will now have seven years of plenty and I really hope that that will become a reality in this nation,” Durant said.

The pastor attributed his faith in a revived economy on the current strong tourist season, citing high occupancy rates at hotels, increased air and cruise arrivals and several new projects.

“I also sense that the Sam Lord’s Castle project being undertaken means employment being created, and several other projects that will come on stream creating employment will do well for our economy.  And it should really help to address the unemployment situation which would make people more comfortable,” the preacher said.

He also said he anticipated that the agriculture industry would perform better than it has in the past, helping to create additional employment.

    As I always say, our government could only take us , to the tourist level, that’s where they skills ends. beyond that is the differing types of businesses they don’t understand.

    Our godly ,Mr, Durant, is on his 7 year trip , in Egypt, why is he forgetting the last decade of war. for our island to survive ,the government have to borrow , money, the world governments ,are borrowers, you don’t borrow for the sake of it to build hotels. that’s for private investors.

    Most sensible and non corrupt ,governments , borrow money to sustain the economic infrastructure of they country. look at Barbados, people are struggling daily, no water, for years this was happening, look the state of our roads, we have no flooding
    storm system, people are beginning to lose power to they homes, we have sewage system which never work, which could inflict serious illnesses on our bajan people. we struggle with the transport system. bad management. our coastal boundaries, is also failing, years of neglect.

    We have government after government, who focuses on nothing beyond tourism and hotel. they allowed our sugar cane to be destroyed, and has done nothing, finding something to replace the same. Our island people can remember where we came from , see where we are at, see what we have lost ,see what we are losing. that our Barbados is there for the taking, but not by bajans.

    Jesus was asked…”How shall we know them?.
    Jesus answered, “By their fruits”
    Jesus did NOT say, “By their words”. Neither did He say, “by those with whom they associate, and cleave closely unto”

    Verily, Our Lord specifically cautioned against those who pray loudly, by the street-corner, or virtually …even by climbing high unto a tree, or a TV tower… such that all might see, hear, and admire their “great faith, and piousness”.

    In fact the Holy Bible is chock-full of injunctions to be humble, and faith and in humility, to develop a close personal relationship
    with God.
    Verily, check your fruits carefully, before buying.
