Rasta Group Concerned About Genetically Modified Foods

The new executive of the Iyanola Council for the Advancement of Rastafari (ICAR) is very concerned about the ‘infiltration’ of Genetically Modified Foods into Saint Lucia, President Aaron ‘Ras Iron’ Alexander has told reporters.

“We believe the time has come for probably the Bureau of Standards or even the consumer protection agency, Ministry of Commerce and by extension the government to look into putting legislation in place to identify foods which are GMO,” Alexander told a news conference Wednesday.

He asserted that people would then know what they are buying off the shelves.

“This is a concern for Rastafarians because we always encourage people to eat healthy,” he explained.

The ICAR President  also disclosed that cannabis issue will be a top priority for the organisation’s new executive,

“This is an issue that the council will definitely get on top of and work closely with the Cannabis Movement of Saint Lucia; with the Chairman – Andre DeCaires. We will be working very closely with him on this issue,” Alexander told reporters at a news conference Wednesday.

He explained that there is a thrust now towards establishing a  herbal cooperative, an initiative in which ICAR wil get involved.

In addition he mentioned that the issues of reparations and repatriation will also be pursued.

    I Proclaim on the rooftops that the “King is coming to redeem the earth of its curse.”! I announce to the ends of the earth, that the “King is coming”. And that the days of Noah are here. “Prepare ye the way of the Lord and make straight his paths.” Tell all the world that I am coming back soon. “I am coming for those who have laid their burdens down”. In the name of Jesus Christ, I pray, Amen.
    The father says: There are those who refuse to live in willful sin. I know every heart individually. I do not expect that you don’t ever make mistakes, I simply ask that you trust me enough to give it all to me and then see what I would do. My mercies are new every day and your sins, when asked to be forgiven will always be forgiven if your heart is sincere in repentance. The line is now being drawn and if you wait to choose me wholeheartedly your eternal fate will be chosen by your refusal to determine who you give allegiance to. Here in lies my wisdom, let all who have ears to hear, hear me; I am he who bore your sins on the cross that day so that you could be free. I am he who then gave my life’s blood for all who know me as savior and Mashiach. I am he who rose on the third day and defeated sin and all death for all time. I stand alone as creator, there is none besides me; I am dominus power and only that which I allow will be. I am awesome and I am mighty.
    Who can know me for “I AM that I AM”? For I am compressing time as you know it. I am the eternal and infinite one. I have placed you in the time-space that is continuing and that is coming to an end. Those who walk this journey with me sense this shift now taking place. You are experiencing that tearing away I have spoken of, the tearing of your souls from your spirits as you ascend higher and further away from the darkness which encroaches. I am pulling at your heart; I am drawing you in. Before you realize what is happening, it will be complete, and I will gather my bride to myself. I want you to understand, that, as the portals of darkness have opened, so too has the windows of my kingdom, so much, that there will not be room to see the blessings I have prepared for my called-out ones. Hold fast to my promises and do not fear the wicked one and the power he has; he only has what I have allowed, and no harm shall come to my beloved ones. So many have bought into the deception and lies he has perpetrated, but my truth shines brightly and will always dispel the darkness.
    As a move of hell enlarges her mouth to receive the wicked so shall I pour my spirit on all flesh, and those who profess me as God and great and mighty exploits will be done in my name. The earth has never seen what I am about to do in and through my people. I am preparing you for all that is here now. You will not be forsaken or walk this path alone. A great and mighty battle rages in the heavenlies as the kingdom of light battles the kingdom of darkness. Every soul who has ever existed know of the end and the great day of the Lord.
    * These are exclusively the words of –Yahuwah and his son Yahushua Mashiach.
    God the Father, the Great King wants his name to be promoted in the four corners of the earth. Repent now; get baptized and receive the gift of the Holy Spirit, those of you who are in the valley of decision. Do not procrastinate any longer but go ahead and choose God, for when the door and the books are closed no one will be able to enter in. God is sending warnings after warnings. We are in the End Times and he does not want ANYONE to Perish. Time is running out, get saved now while you have time. He is the only way to salvation. Amend your ways and you will be allowed to remain in the land. Let those who have ears to hear and those who have eyes to see. Repent now! Remain strong, be bold, courageous and steadfast in your faith.
    The Lord is saying that: there are people in the churches, in the pulpits, the choir, the church boards, (church in general), who claim to know him but do not have a personal relationship with him, his spirit does not dwell in their hearts and they need to learn how to build a relationship with him, so he can dwell in their hearts. Repent now, pray without ceasing, read his word daily and speak to him as your best friend or father. Do not hesitate to do this as his judgments have already begun. The end of everything has begun.
    Credit to Brother Shomrim, may God bless and protect you my, brother.

    • Greetings Brethren’s in the name of His Imperial Majesty Haile Selassie The First and respect to Empress Menen. Brethren’s in retrospect to the importation of Genetically Modified Food Rasta should not involved them themselves in Babylon things let Babylon do their things that’s why Babylon must fall. When Rasta been saying for years no salt ball heads have been saying add salt. When Rasses have been saying no sugar Ball heads been saying add sugar. We know Ital is Vital and everything should be consumed natural as proclaimed by the almighty in regards to Ital living a pound a day and a chapter a day to keep devil away. We Just continue to do our little farming, drink our juices nuts and berries and vegetables exercise don’t drink alcohol and we will always out live them. Rastafari every time.

  2. I am not a Rasta, but not all Rasta just want to plant weed only. Many of them are veey good farmers. Some people have gotten hooked on that imported salty food from Upso, and it is only when they end up with medical problems that they want to go back to the locally grown and gmo free food. You can pay the farmer less now, or pay the pharmacist more later.
