Methodist Minister Says Crime Scaring People Away From Evening Service

Superintendent Minister of the Methodist Church, Seth Ampadu, has disclosed that crime is scaring people away from attending evening church service.

“Because of the crime issue the church seems to (be) losing members, especially in the evening worship,” he lamented.

“People don’t want to come out, because they are afraid,” Ampadu told reporters Monday.

The religious minister observed that people feel insecure about coming out.

“Sometimes when you ask them for evening programmes they tell you ‘Rev, where I live, it is very dangerous to come out at night,” he noted.

Ampadu said if people in a society are afraid to come out and worship, then something is wrong.

According to the minister, spirituality is very important to the development of a society.

He asserted that crime will affect the economy which is tourism dependent.

“People come from overseas, but when they see crime escalating – they will be afraid to come out.”

Ampadu, who disclosed that the Methodist Church Hall on Chisel Street, Castries had been broken into as recently as last month, declared that even though the police are doing their best, they can do more.

“The government needs to provide the materials – the tools that the police need and the police should up their game to meet the sophisticated nature of these criminals,” the Methodist Minister stated.

He expressed the view that all sectors of the society need to do their part in the fight against crime.

“The police can do whatever they need to do, but if we – the society, the people within the society, we do not feed them with information; they are not God to know everything,” Ampadu asserted.

He was of the opinion that the church and other organisations have a role to play in combatting crime.

Ampadu stated that crime is posing a challenge not only for Saint Lucia, but the region and the rest of the world as well.

    The father says: Be wise among your days and do not misunderstand these days. Do not leave your post in this appointed time. I have your days and steps forward, I am excited for what you will find just around the bend. Many have followed bad religious teachings since their youth. Move in love and grace, be willing and yielded, it is time for a shift and change. Look for new doors of opportunity for you were made for what is coming against you, everything is used to make you on the potters wheel. Release the notion of less and lack, breakthroughs will fall far and wide on your circumstances. I am not a boring nor a mediocre God, you are so special to me. I am not asking for perfection, you are the apple of my eye, you are coming out of what held you back for years. It is when you outgrow what I have given you, then I will give you more.
    What you are going through now will increase your faith. You limit what you think a natural world will allow, you are so very precious to me and I wrap you in my arms. After all, how can one choose to tear down what I am doing in their lives. You were created to be infused into my branches, I am with you all the time. You must come up higher, so get quiet in spirit and I will show up and show out. There are patterns that you have allowed to take over your life. Decide to get up from the rubble, you are walking on calmer waters, your maturity in me is growing rapidly. I will not fail you, you are not a robot bidding for others, my sheep know my voice. Fear is not of my spirit, you are learning to walk in true son-ship, you are united not divided. I created you, unique and I will stretch you out of the days of comfort.
    Rest in the boat for now, as I finish this and return to the shore. I am speaking so command your ears to hear and your eyes to see. I am not concerned with where you start, I cannot fail, your open door and chariots have arrived. You are right on track so stop looking around, do not cast your crowns at garbage. Pray for people even you greatest enemy, I am going to take your earthly expectations. I see how you lay your heart at my feet but what I do not see is you failing and I am proud of you. Every step of faith is love and you keep moving so keep your eyes on me. Your are called to glory in the risen sun, my children will have all they need and I will not leave them without. The relinquishing of your heart and everything you have been given as a result of your faith. My will was to build you up to walk in my ways, nothing is beyond my reach. You are my goal to raise you up to mirror and imitate me. Your life has become full-circle. What hangs unto you will leave and where your treasure is, that is where you will live. Do not fear the stage, it is big and its coming.
    The warnings from my messengers have been declared and my heart is to see my people falling on their knees repenting. For as the sun rises in the East and sets in the West, but I will destroy those who continue to mock my message. I hear the heart cries of my people, I see all and I hear all. Watch, wait and pray my loves! Are you ready my children? Why do you toil on what does not matter when there are souls that are at stake? If you will witness to those around you. When you witness to others about me, you bring me great glory. You are troubled on many things but you live in tumultuous times. I am able to guide you in times of chaos, draw closer to me and learn of my ways. You have wisdom, I am waiting on you at the door. The end of all things has began, the enemy desires to be like me. The “fluidity movement” is planning to make man, both “male and female”. All shall bear witness of my judgment. America, you do not desire to know me and only my remnant shall I protect.

    *These are the prophesies of Yahoshua.

    * Repent; be baptized and receive the gift of the Holy Spirit, those of you who have not done so, for when the books are closed no one will be able to enter in. God is sending warning after warning. We are in the End Times and he does not want ANY ONE to Perish. Time is running out, get saved now while you have time.

  2. These sick individuals continue their evil actions…unaware or ignorant of the fact that they will suffer tremendously as well as anyone else who partakes of their ill gotten gains. In addition God ‘s house is not to be messed with. The Lord’s judgement will be their portion.
