Aerial threat, economic downturn, instant money transfer closure of airport at night, law & order situation amongst other things have caused great distress among the business leaders who are responsible to make ends meet, keep profit levels and pay the bread winners their monthly wages. Many Paymasters understand that they are shepherds over their employees and that this appointment can be greatly helped by God the Great Shepherd.
Those who make political, business, professional and judicial decisions are comparable to Gatekeepers of ancient cities . In ancient times business transactions and judicial decisions took place at the city gate. Gatekeepers of a city and nation ought to open up the city to good and shut the gate to evil. This is an onerous task in which God the Great & Good Shepherd will have to help . We invite Gatekeepers of the city to participate in an event at Trans Asia Hotel which will enable you to tap into God’s resources in these difficult days. (Next Event – July 6 th 6.30 pm The Pavilion, Trans Asia Hotel)
Sri Lanka is an unusually blessed and endowed resplendent isle . Sri Lankan ports were even from 1500 BC, the hub for trade between East and West. Many ancient Historians have chronicled these facts and the ships of King Solomon came to Sri Lanka for Cinnamon, Sandalwood, Ivory, Peacocks, precious stones (which included sapphire, rubies and pearls) and gold. Gold was found on the North Western Coast of Lanka and was submerged by the sea in a number of seaquakes (?Tsunami). One such is documented as sea overrunning Lanka in the time of Kelanitissa when Vihara Maha Devi was sent out in a boat and later married Kavantissa .
Many argue that the Biblical Ophir, the land of gold, was North West Sri Lankan coast , then known as Ovir (Mannar later). The Maps of Ptolemy has Taprobane as 900 miles long and broad (300 “Gau”). This is not an error as some supposed but the measurements given to him by Greek travellers who even came form the time of Alexander the Great. At present Lanka has less than 10% of the land mass of what it may have been. Since the NW coast was rich in minerals it is not surprising that we have petroleum in that 1000 loan no credit check region. Do not be surprised if we strike gold while drilling for Petroleum.
In a world of macro happenings, can your trust in God make an impact? For instance can you do better than gasp at or criticise the present downward spiral? Can you do better than attempt hasty emigration? Can God’s action on your behalf help your family, your world of influence and even the nation?
Curses are accepted as the cause of inexplicable downward turn in life experienced by individuals or nations. South Korea was one such nation in 1956 – so much so that depressed communities in Sri Lanka were called “Koriyawa”. At present South Korea is prosperous. Can we make the change? Can we become blessed – the Resplendent Isle once again – God wants to begin the process with you.
God will Bless you
God’s first act was to bless man and His first command to man was “be fruitful, increase, fill”.
Gen. 1:28 And God blessed them . And God said to them, Be fruitful, and multiply and fill the earth, and subdue it. And have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the fowl of the heavens, and all animals that move upon the earth. Eph. 1:3 – “Who hath blessed us with all spiritual blessings.”
Blessing is God’s first response to man Pro. 10:22 The blessing of the Lord itself makes rich , and He adds no sorrow with it.
3John 1:2 Beloved, in regard to all things I pray that you prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers .
“Lord Jesus, I receive you into my heart. Forgive me my sins. Prosper my soul”.
Place of Promotion & Blessing of Honour
Psa. 91:1-2 He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall rest under the shadow of the Almighty. (2) I will say of the Lord , my refuge and my fortress; my God; in Him I will trust.

Cross is the Doorway of Every Blessing
Cross of Jesus is the door for all of God’s blessings. On the cross, all of God’s goodness overcame all of man’s badness. When we need an uplift from our defeats and failures (which the Bible calls sin), we come to the doorway for God’s goodness – which is the cross on which God (Lord Jesus) gave Himself for us. Sin is missing God’s mark and missing God’s best. Sin is missing the way. We can get back through God’s doorway for all God has for us, even when we are 60 years or seventy years. You will be surprised how much more there is in store for you from the bounty of the Heavenly Father’s Heart .
God working for you by your side helping you in your role as husband, father, master at work or friend, makes it so much better than you striving alone.
