    FIJI IS GOING THROUGH SOME TOUGH TIMES,THE PEOPLE NEED TO UNDERSTAND WHAT THE SOCIETY AND POLITICIAN SOW THEY WILL REAP.CAN THEY CHECK WHAT WAS THERE MOTIVE WHEN THEY PLANT THE SEED OF GREED,HATRED,DISCRIMINATION,SELFSEEKING GLORY,ENVEY,ETC.LET ME GIVE A SINGLE ADVICE TO ALL THE SMART GUYS WHO ARE TRYING OUT THERE SKILLS IN THE FIELD.IF YOU CAN ONLY ASK THE LORD JESUS WHAT FRIUTS THEY ARE LOOKING FOR,HE WILL SURELY TELL THEM THE RIGHT SEED TO PLANT.PEOPLE OF FIJI ARE SICK OF EATING THE BAD FRUITS.CHURCH LEADERS ARE DISHING OUT CONTAMINATED SPIRITUAL FOOD.HAVE THEY ALLOWED GODS ENEMY THE DEVIL TO SNEEK IN AT NIGHT TO SOW BAD SEEDS.THEY NEED TO RESIST THE DEVIL VERY HARD TO STOP ITS DEADLY TACTICS.Iam talking to the so call christian,we need to come to JESUS and allowed the LORD to tourch our EYES for the second time,so we can see our ways clearly from Gods perspective.For how long we will continue to walk blindly and suffer for our bad choice of seeds.LETS GET REAL AND TRUST IN THE LORD.
