One of the unsuccessful “independent” candidates in the February 2013 general elections, who purports to be a prophet, is predicting that Barbados will be devastated by a massive 7.7 magnitude earthquake this year.
Apostle Steve Hunte, who was associated with the Coalition of United Parties, told Barbados TODAY this afternoon that following the quake, flooding would take place, wiping out two-thirds of the Barbados’ population.
Before the general election, Hunte had predicted the victory of the ruling Democratic Labour Party, and had promised judgement on Prime Minister Fruendel Stuart if he failed to meet with him after he won the poll.
Brandishing a plumb line, used for measuring and a boomerang, he said Prime Minister Stuart had still not granted him the audience and he would therefore be responsible for the “pending” judgement which he claimed would come upon this country in the form of the earthquake.
“The Lord has sent me to set in the midst of Barbados, the plumb line. The plumb line speaks of justice and judgement. It’s an instrument used for measuring walls, to build them straight. It’s a measurement to make sure that things are straight,” noted the professional plumber.
“I am set here and sent here in Barbados to measure and sound the depth of judgement that shall come upon Barbados; and I have been measuring the City for the past day and a half now, at the sign of the plumb line.
“And the Lord has shown me that the judgement that shall come, based on my measurements, is a earthquake, 7.7 on the Richter Scale. These are the numbers I received — 012327477. I shared this revelation in a church on Sunday. I was invited to minister the Word of God. The earthquake and the plumb line that God has set in the nation of Barbados; at the sign of this plumb line that I bear, the Lord has sent me to pronounce his justice and his judgement in this nation.
“From the Government house to the church house; from the church assembly to the Government assembly,” asserted the minister.
He suggested that the quake would be God’s way of inflicting judgement on this country for its iniquity and lies “from the church house to the Government house”.
He urged Barbadians to take his word seriously, considering there were many other people in the island who had received the same revelations, including 10 predictions he made in March this year. Hunte reasoned that those forecasts were beginning to come true such as the Government and private sector being at loggerheads and that people of Barbados would receive messages from God of judgement.
He explained that the boomerang meant that God’s Word would not return to Him void (Isaiah 55:11) and the plumb line: God’s mercy had bypassed Barbados (Amos 7:7&8). Hunte insisted that not even the prayers of the saints would now be able to save this country from the prophesied disaster.
In a related issue, he informed this newspaper that he had filed an official report with the police claiming he was assaulted and removed from a church in the City, when he adorned his spiritual symbols and took up three seats from the front.
The Apostle also assured that he planned to take the matter to the High Court, if a speedy resolution of resolution and compensation were not forthcoming. [email protected]
