Today, disaster relief operations are underway in Haiti where 700+ people were killed and 1,000+ are missing in flooding spawned by Tropical Storm Jeanne. Sadly, an estimated 160,000+ Haitians have been left homeless. In April 2003, then president Jean-Bertrand Aristide sanctioned voodoo as an officially recognized religion. I believe there is a MAJOR connection between this demonic religion and the disaster there. What is voodoo? A typical voodoo service begins with a Roman Catholic prayer followed by syncopated druming with attendees dancing around a tree in the center of the yard, moving faster and harder with the rising pulse of the beat. Then a priest draws symbols in the dust with cornmeal and rum is poured on the ground to honor the demonic spirits. A woman dancer may fall to the ground convulsing for a moment, then is helped back to her feet. She resumes the dance, moving differently now, and continues dancing for hours. It is no longer she who is dancing: she is in a trance possessed by Erzuli the great demonic mother spirit. The Haitians consider it an honor to be entered and "ridden" by a Loa or a spirit/demon. In Haiti these rituals are commonplace and voodoo is the dominant religion - an estimated 60 million people practice voodoo worldwide. LORD JESUS, COME IN POWER, EXPOSE THE LIES OF VOODOO, AND SET THESE PEOPLE FREE FROM THEIR BONDAGE WE PRAY!
