Pastor and political commentator Mr Claude O. Skelton-Cline has warned that ungodly spiritual forces are currently at play in the 2023 Virgin Islands elections and that prayers are needed to combat those forces.
“There's always a spiritual dimension at work and we have to be cognisant, we have to be mindful, we have to become aware that there are forces at work, that they are those who are reliant, whose reliance on forces that are not Jehovah God,” he said during the Tuesday, March 14, 2023, edition of his Honestly Speaking radio show on ZBVI 780 AM.
He added that these forces should not be underestimated as they are already at work in the country for the upcoming elections and that Virgin Islanders must pray against these forces.
“We must pray… that the will of Jehovah might be done, and that we might be discerning enough to know what that will is and work with the will of God and not have God work with our will, he added.
Meanwhile, the pastor at 'The Alabaster
Box' Ministries, Ms Roxanne T. Toussaint has previously said that
demonic forces were holding the country back ahead of the 2023 General
Elections in the VI and seeking to stop the election.
Don't underestimate forces- Skelton-Cline
The clergyman further called on Virgin Islanders to not underestimate that there are ‘forces’ at play; however, Mr Skelton-Cline did not get into details on what these forces could be.
Meanwhile, the pastor at 'The Alabaster Box' Ministries, Ms Roxanne T. Toussaint, previously said demonic forces were holding the country back ahead of the 2023 General Elections and seeking to stop the elections.
Under an initiative called ‘Pray BVI’ and a one-hour online sermon delivered on Saturday, February 11, 2023, on Facebook
, the Minister said that bewitchment and mind-binding spirits were being employed during the elections period which would prevent Virgin Islanders from making prudent decisions when voting.
A date for elections has not yet been announced, although the House of Assembly has already been dissolved.
