Wager Between Two Men Blamed For Suspected Drowning

A wager involving two men in the fishing village of Canaries led to the suspected drowning death of one of them, a relative of the deceased has disclosed.

According to the police, Robert Joseph, also known as “Jilien”, 52, reportedly went swimming near the jetty in Canaries, when he encountered difficulties returning to shore.

Members of the public assisted in bringing him ashore, where efforts were made to resuscitate him, but to no avail,  a police statement on the incident, which occurred about 3.15 p.m on Christmas Eve day, said.

However a relative of the deceased explained that according to information obtained from persons on the scene, Joseph had challenged another man to a swimming contest.

“They would have swam to a boat and then the bet was $100 each, so the winner would come away with two hundred bucks,” the relative told reporters.

“But as he got there, he touched the boat they were supposed to get to but when he stopped – they realised he stopped and then he proceeded again and then he went down the first time. He came back up and then he went down a second time – this time they realised after long enough that he was not going to return.”

According to the relative, it was then that others who had gathered to watch the contest went looking for the deceased and found the body.

Law enforcement sources have told St Lucia Times that they are aware of reports that the deceased had taken part in a wager.



  1. Two men competing or challenging each other call it like you want.Shame age played a big part here,because one had a heart problem,and that was the end for him.When you play these games its allways good to have a boat following close,specially when you are over 45 years old.

    You will come to me beautifully and you will see my hearts desire, you will see why your inheritance was withheld. All the generations have yearn to see what you will see, you are not birthing your dreams but you are birthing mine. I will bless you so immensely that the world will not understand, you will not only be blessed financially but you will receive the wells and you and I will give you the land as well. My love for you is eternal, the faith that you need to persevere is the power you need to enter in. You will know your purpose as you receive my will. You may have thought that life has done you a disservice, I am faithful and to receive your birthright is pleasing to me. The days of your breakthrough are upon you and in them I will keep you. You will remain in my presence in your break through, I require you remain faithful for it takes humility to stand before me, but humility does not stand, it kneels.
    I have safely secured each and everyone. You will go as I send you, you will be called “peculiar”, you will run, you will run, you will run. My children will walk in perfect peace, it is time to enter-in, you are now entering your season of harvest. I wish for my people to hear me express my faith, pray to have faith as a child. Believing every word I have written as I have told you, the seals of the book of Revelation have opened before you. You my beloved, are those who remain vigilant and you will bring many souls to me. I am the almighty King, I have prepared a table for you in the presence of your enemies. I am the everlasting one, your “Hyah”.
    Eternal unity with me or eternal separation, live your life in righteousness and holiness for me to write my will in your hearts. I am always faithful, you only need to call and I will respond. Nothing will stand beside me, until I return for you, you must feed your heart, you are being mind controlled, the poison some of you are feeding your souls are toxic for you.
    This “beast” and the “false prophet” are taking their positions now. Hear the words of “Elijah the Prophet” as they speak my words to the world. Which would you hear,”depart from me I never knew you” or “well done thou good and faithful servant”, enter in to the will of the Lord.
    My children, do not be deceived when it appears that all is working together for peace.There will be “peace”, “peace”, then sudden destruction. What the enemy cannot gain by deceit it gains by lies. They have devised a plan to deceive the leaders of America in believing all is well. Like sheep led to the slaughter so shall this country go, her people have chosen to go their own way over mine.
    Husbands, you are the head of the family, I put you in this position but I see you relaxing. You need to have a plan for your family. The bank institutions take their orders from the government. Women and children will be taken to camps. Be prepared before the “beast” comes to power, many things have been hidden for him to come to power. He blasphemes the one true “God” and say that; “I am God”!
    To the “Pope” you do not have the indwelling of the “Holy Spirit”, you tell the world that you are the “light and the truth” but you and the “beast” will NOT prevail. Your hands are soaked in the blood of the “martyrs”. Everything in your atmosphere will change, seasons will not remain in their boundaries, seas will not remain where they used to.
    My children, I desire you would not fear what is coming, learn of me and make your preparations as I lead you. Your minds will be in constant turmoil, man will be running to and fro. Those who refuse me now I will shake them to the core, many will not change and continue to be defiant. “Turn to me”, it is not my will for any to perish. Love me, serve me and make me the focus of your life and you will not be shaken. So many souls will go into hell that night.
    Tell my people, I desire for them to know me. My children, some of you are part of church groups that are not good for you, some I will move around for your safety. I have told you that I am bringing my “merciful ones” home, it is a joyful thing to bring my people home. As I take my “merciful ones” home the evil will intensify; do good now while it is time. When you feel like giving up, consider what I went through, as you travel down the “tunnel” you will see me at the end and you will wonder, what am I looking at? It is written, “Prophesy will end”, it is true, I am calling my people home, you are coming home.

    It is finished!

    * Repent; be baptized and receive the gift of the Holy Spirit, everyone!
