Jamaica is in serious trouble and church leaders must repent to save the nation. This, according to Evangelist Sandra Brooks, is a revelation from God.
Speaking with The Gleaner on Wednesday, Brooks, who has been baptised for the past 27 years and ordained as an evangelist in September 1996, said she got the revelation six weeks ago while in her bed, partially asleep.
"Macedonian calling! Mace-donian calling! Cry aloud, spare not, lift up your voice like a trumpet in Zion. Show my people their transgression and the house of Jacob their sins (Isaiah 58:1). These words came to me in a vision, the Lord told me to get up and write it down and in the morning he will explain to me," the popular gospel singer said.
The revelation continued the following morning, as the Lord began revealing to her the state of the Church.
This was what God allegedly revealed to her later:
The leaders of the Church need to repent, including pastors, deacons, elders, priests, evangelists, missionaries and everyone who holds an office in the Church should REPENT!
The state of the nation is the state of the Church.
He (God) says, we have been eating his sacrifice (1 Samuels 2:12-26) while there are poor and needy among us. Instead of helping them so that they can help themselves, we turn a blind eye and tell them to pray.
He (God) says some leaders were trying to do the right things but many were found wanting. He says, you must REPENT or he is going to show up among the leaders.
I heard him saying 'spiritual abortion'. I have given many of you work to do but you have become complacent. Staying within the four corners while many are dying.
You are my servants but yet you have become so high minded, greedy, selfish and proud. If you don't REPENT I am going to cut down some great men among you.
You are behaving as if you are gods over my people. I call you to serve my people, not to treat them with disdain and disrespect.
You are practising spiritual envy and jealousy. Everybody wants to be in control. Everyone wants to lead. You worry about money too much.
Every man wants to take the glory unto himself. Don't you see the nation? Don't you see how many of my children have been slaughtered.
Many of them are innocent and their blood is crying out to me from the earth yet you sit around criticising each other using my sacrifice to compete with each other. Stop using my money to compete with each other. You need to be burdened for souls.
Your business practices are not clean so change your ways. That is why some of you have been cut down. It is because of your unclean business practices. You treat people unfairly. Who do you have business arrangements with, do you underpay them for their labour? Isn't a man worthy of his labour? Why do you want to undermine him? You are dishonest, REPENT and you will be safe, you and your house.
If my people who are called by my name will pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways then I will hear from heaven and heal their land.
