The rich ruleth over the poor, and the borrower is servant to the lender. Proverbs 22:7
The reason behind the systematic poverty in Africa is the credit lifestyle; begging, borrowing & dependence on aids. Ever wondered how much debt some African countries owe the west. Ridiculous debts, borrowed and wasted on white elephant projects. We rejoice at the aroma of monies from the west which are usually wasted or diverted. The budget of nations are to be funded by borrowed funds & aids. Does it mean that these countries have nothing to trade with? The inequity between nations have become obvious and glaring. Being called a third world country or resource-poor nation is acceptable. Yet, these nations have vast natural resources sought after by the west. Just as one said, Africa is not poor but poorly managed. Poverty has become an African brand with the tag developing nations
“The Lord shall open unto thee his good treasure, the heaven to give the rain unto thy land in his season, and to bless all the work of thine hand:and thou shalt lend unto many nations, and thou shalt not borrow.” Deuteronomy 28:12.
A work mentality that makes things work is eroded by a credit lifestyle. You are either a-lending-to-nations or a-borrowing-nations. A lender works and a borrower wastes. Which one are you? One is a master, the other a servant; a borrower is a slave. The covenant is the sure way out of the house of bondage. Credit is key to the waste in Africa, the covenant leads to abundance or work. Those that borrow to eat will always be hungry and poor; a slave. The covenant blessing is for the work of your hand, not for the lazy. The covenant gives seed; Ideas, wisdom, insight to create wealth. Those that create wealth trade with ideas, not aids and loans. The covenant is the power to create value goods and services. A borrower remains in economic, political, & social slavery ; Thou shall not borrow! The help of Africa is not from the west it is from the lord.
“But thou shalt remember the Lord thy God:for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.”Deuteronomy 8:18.
