    On the land of Ethiopia it is raining, raining and none stop raining for more than 40 days every day and night all over the country. This must be the biggest blessing coming from above on the land of Ethiopia that is containing more than 75% of the highest grounds, 90% gorges and valleys in the African continent. The country is located on the middle of the earth on the highest grounds close to the sky as high as thousands meters above the sea levels perfectly built by nature with abandoned fundamental natural gifts such as the best weather, fertile soil, rain falls and breathtaking landscape.

    Ethiopia is among very few nations in the world does have equal day light and night darkness hours throughout the year. That is why we count1- 12 hours day and night each separately starting with one when the sun rises and finishes with 12th day hour when the sun sets. It is the same with night starting one when the sun sets and count to 12th night hours when the sun rises.

    But in Europe, the Americans, Africa or many other nations, they started counting day hours in the middle of the Night while night hours begin in the middle of the day. Of course they are suffering from unbalance day and night lengths because of they are far from the equator which is the sun’s (God to nature including earth and all its habitants) permanent home. yet, they are always right and we are wrong which is the usual behavior they have towards others that are different from them and have their own that describes them who they are and from where they came in order to shape their future destination for their own by themselves.

    However, what the book is saying about 2000 and 3000 years ago in the land of Egypt that is desert and totally relaying on the Nile water coming from the Ethiopian highland and it (the Nile) became the only reason for the creation of the first ever and greatest civilization in Human history during the Pharaohs era in Africa, some of them are on the making in today’s Ethiopia, too. The book is talking lots about hunger and flooding in ancient times in the desert or elsewhere during the time when human capacity was closer to the animals i.e. totally dependent on the course of nature.

    What we are witnessing in Ethiopia today reminds how it was the situation back thousands years ago when we are allowing ourselves relaying on the course of nature instead of using the nature gifts to shape our destinies including avoiding setbacks and difficulties caused by famine or flood.
    In 2015, we have been subjected to drought caused by El Niño that gave the monsters and evils (Zionists/Jews) from the west the kind of rights, free rides and biggest opportunities to tarnish our country image, undermine us and interfere in our internal matters as they are doing so for decades including trying to create and inflame internal conflicts from the base in USA, London and elsewhere in the west including using the runaway from Ethiopia and miserably failed in abroad worthless and brainless angry and desperate immigrants that are very few in numbers but barking like mad dogs everyday doing it as daily job as they have been told and facilitated by their Zionists/Jews masters over there including VOA.

    The evil racists and greedy fascists like them are trying to divide us mentioning ethnicities as big problems/reasons while they are the biggest problems and worst racists against all blacks and others, too. They are the ones too different one another including naturally while in Ethiopia all Ethiopians do look the same naturally. But they are acting as if they are the same people in the name of a religion that is the same as like all religions including Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism and so on where different races and Ethnics are worshiping the same God…. each of them believing such as like Ethiopians and Russians are doing together.

    2016 starting from end march-end September will be one of the biggest and longest rain seasons ever in Ethiopia expecting to cause floods. 2015 El Nino which is drought is replaced by 2016 Al Nina which is heavy rain fall.

    However, drought or flood in Ethiopia must not be seen as problems getting out of hands but manageable with our efforts as others are doing. Ethiopians must pray always to the Good God while doing the jobs they have to do by themselves. But they must stop praying, begging or crying to solve their problems while sitting and doing nothing when something is happened to them including caused by nature such as drought or flooding. This is the best time Ethiopians must stand up all over the country to work hard and good using the best rainy season for their advantage. This is the only and best solution they have and can do it by themselves while working together and seeking support from the nations that are willing and able to do so from the east and others like Italy, Russia and so on.

    The 2000 years old story in the book talking about drought and famine or flood and disasters in the desert must not be seen in reality in Ethiopia in the 21-century. This kind behavior must not come from any individual, group or nation that says believing in the Good God. Those believing in the Good God must be always getting busy doing the human jobs on time with quality, quantity and variety. Those believing in the Good God must not beg others for anything human made or feel less than others while they are created equally like everyone else. However, Ethiopians are created with more advantages and gifts in a God given country with abandoned and well balanced fundamental natural gifts including the country location, best weather, fertile soil, landscape and of course lots of fresh water.

    Therefore, 2016 Easter (2008 Fasika) in Ethiopia must be seen as the promising day/time Ethiopians will no more relaying on others or nature to balance their situation but they must use nature to balance it for their advantages. The government, scholars, experts and Ethiopian Medias must get some home born and grown useful brain that is working for Ethiopia based on the Ethiopian situations. The Ethiopian situation were/are and always will be the best if we; the people behave normally and doing the right things on time as others are doing.

    We must stop relaying on others mainly the west that are always praying to Satan and doing the satanic activities to see us in troubles that makes them happy and give them advantages and opportunities to affect us the ways we have been through including the Zionists/Jews so called journalists, scholars, Think thanks, NGO, aid agencies, Charities, UN and so on including them being in our own country. This is the time to test the Ethiopian government with its response using the best rainy season for the nation advantages and transformations started from the agriculture sectors.

    Ethiopia must develop her agriculture sector to the 21-century levels using her abandoned water wealth, farm land, best weather and location. Ethiopia was, is and always must remain the greatest agriculture nation knowing industry will be in the decline when nations started to produce every industrial and manufacturing item they need at home including cars, domestic articles, machines, engines, and so on. But there are many nations unable to farm because of they are desert, close to the poles which is cold weather or some other bad natural reasons for farming which is unlike to Ethiopia. Life needs every day to eat, drink, wear and so on using the things that are the result of agriculture/farming including fruits, vegetables, drinks, meat, cotton, leather and wool.

    So, we wish a very happy Fasika in 2008 to Ethiopia with promises and determinations from now on the Ethiopian situation will be different because of those believing in the Good God are going to get busy every day doing the Good/God things including working hard and good without choosing the kind of jobs. Ethiopians must use the 2016 heavy rainy season for their advantage by getting busy everyday including Sundays or any holiday. God loves those getting busy every day doing the right things while hates those lazy doing the wrong things including nonsense talks while sitting too long surrounded by shortages, poverties, sicknesses and ignorance.

    The Ethiopian government must stop continuing begging for food using drought as reason while the country is affected right now by floods because of flood presentations are not in place. The farmers must get busy while the government and experts have to work with them very closely delivering everything the farmers are needing including fertilizer, equipments, frequent and accurate weather forecasts and so on. The dams must be filled to the full knowing they were badly affected because of the shortage of water. Stop begging or praying while sitting or doing nothing but do everything it has to be done while praying and praising the Good God feeling free, happy and prosper in life which is short can end in any time including with unexpected causes and in unexpected places.

    Happy Fasika 2008/Easter 2016.
