Prophet sees oil in Barbados’ future

Barbados is on the verge of becoming oil-rich, and the six earth tremors which rattled the island yesterday, signalled that the transformation was underway, prophesied local apostle Lynroy Scantlebury.

Scantlebury, the head of World Harvest Ministries International, told Barbados Today that he received word from God since 2005, and on November 27, 2012, he was instructed that the island would see increased seismic activity for the purpose of making this country a serious oil-producing nation.

“What the Lord shared with me is that he is shifting an oil vein from Trinidad and Venezuela, and he’s bringing that oil to Barbados. So these tremors are really to adjust the country, so that the oil can really begin to come inland here in Barbados,” the local prophet said.

He insisted the earth’s rumblings were not about the moral or political failings of the country, saying “it was simply God’s intention to bring Barbados to the place where He wants it to be”.

“Barbados is at that point in history where God is ready to do what he determines he will do with Barbados, so this is part of Barbados taking on its destiny as a nation. This is not about the economic fallout, this is not about gays and lesbians, this is not about moral decay, the corruption in government; this is simply about what God plans to do with the island of Barbados,” the church leader said.

Scantlebury predicted the island would become oil-rich within a year or two, with about eight parishes as the major beneficiaries.

“The parishes where you will see this happening are St Andrew, St Joseph, St John, parts of St Philip, parts of Christ Church, St Lucy, St Peter and very small portions of St Thomas. St James and St. Michael won’t really get much of it, but you are going to see these tremors at strategic points around the country as these veins begin to shift to Barbados.”

He said God didn’t want the Government to hide the oil, and as a result many Barbadians would discover oil on their properties.

“Many individuals are going to wake up as the earth tremors become more and more intense, they are going to find oil deposits in their backyards, and that’s going to be a game changer for many across Barbados,” he forecasted.

The apostle suggested that there was already evidence of an increase in oil and natural gas in the country, but he claimed that the Barbados National Oil Company had not made the nation aware.

“They are beginning to find lots of oil in Barbados. They haven’t said, but if they were honest with the people of Barbados right now, they are beginning to find a lot of oil right now, and natural gas.”

Looking into the future, Scantlebury provided the location of major oil reserves waiting to be discovered.

“If they were to search between 70 to 80 miles southwest of Barbados right now, they would find a very large, large deposit of oil right now, and it is going to change our country.”

Scantlebury acknowledged that some Barbadians would challenge, or even scoff at the message, which he said was given directly to him by God. However, he said that would neither affect him, nor stop the prophecy from being fulfilled.

“Many people are not interested in hearing things from God as it regards the future of Barbados. Our country is not very prophetically or apostolically inclined. There are times when God sets his people apart to speak to them concerning nations, and families and individuals. He has given me this assignment since 2005 to share this, and I have done so over the years to make sure this word is out there.”

The church leader confessed that this was not the first time that God had reached him directly, adding that his revelations had been rejected in the past.

“As an apostle I stay with what I am hearing from the Lord. If the Lord says oil is coming to Barbados, well I say that oil is coming to Barbados. We’ll see the oil come and then that will be the proof of what the Lord shared with me is accurate. I am not here to fight with anybody about it, or quarrel with anybody if they don’t believe. But I believe what God says,” he stated.

In the meantime, Scantlebury said Barbadians should brace for more earth tremors. However, he said there was no need to fear since there would only be some structural damage, but no deaths.

“We don’t need to panic. Of course we should take emergency precautions when they are happening, but on a wider scale there is no need for mass panic across Barbados.

“This country is going to become a world leader in terms of where oil exports are concerned. It is going to be a tremendous day for Barbados, and I think what the Lord plans to do is to create an island that is poverty-free. That’s part of the plan. So we can have a fantastic time if we are willing to listen to the Lord and follow his leadings in this season,” the prophesier predicted.

    I appreciate that impartation,remember for god to bless us we have to live holy and righteous in his sight,as he said the nations has to humble themselves,pray,seek his face and turn from their wicked ways ,he will hear from them and heal their land.god may be shaking the island because they are following the corrupted ways of those foreign investors who coming to exploit the poor black islanders,I am a native of Barbados each day I read the news it worries me,hope we are not returning to slavery,god will bless us if we live in his will.the island is in the process of crop over ,some of the young generations are very vulgar at the Kadooment festival,probaly god is shaking the island at this time to say to them the vulgarity with their body movements are outrageous.other nations have festivals they parades are not vulgar,god is giving tremors – alcohol,drugs,vulgar behavior at the festival,,we must pray for a change of character .

    I do believe the Man of god’s prophecy. When many of us take the time to begin to pray and fast on a regular basis, we also will hear God’s voice. As Barbadians by birth and otherwise, we have to abandon many of our unrighteous ways. We cannot expect God to bless us and we lead corrupt lives. It does not work and will never work. Many of go from day to day without a thought about our God unless it is at a time when we want to “blind” someone who has offended us. God is speaking to us a bit more. He speaks though earthquakes, fire, wind etc. There is joy in having a close relationship with God. There is great peace, comfort in staying your mind on Him. We have to encourage one another.

    While I was on the computer on Wednesday night watching a service and listening to a sermon from a preacher in Namibia, I suddenly doze off and saw a grey road with a big split in it. I jumped up a bit scared because I did not fully understand what I had seen in that split second. It was the Thursday around 11:00a.m. that I realised the meaning of what I had glimpsed in that moment. The split was not deep and looked as though it could be repaired without any difficulty.
