Five die violently in Guadeloupe over the weekend

Five people were killed in violent incidents in the neighboring French island of Guadeloupe over the past weekend.

The blood bath began on Saturday night when a 70-year-old man from the town of Moule shot and killed a neighbor whom, reports say, he suspected was having an affair with his wife.

He then shot and killed his wife and turned the gun on himself.

On Sunday afternoon, a 59-year-old man was chopped multiple times with a cutlass in the town of St. Rose. He died before emergency crews arrived.
Two men from St. Martin are in police custody for questioning in that incident.

Meanwhile, between late Sunday night and early Monday morning, the lifeless body of a 23-year-old man was found in the Petit Perou area of the town of Abymes. He had what appeared to be gunshot wounds to the head.

Also there was a stabbing incident from a fight in the village of Petit Canal on Sunday night. A 25-year-old man was hospitalized after receiving medical treatment on the spot. His injuries did not appear to be life-threatening.

    My people we are presently living in an unprecedented chaotic world. Only the Almighty can save us all not church or religion; we have to pray unceasingly.

    This is sad news. I’m very happy that the masked murderers who hashay the man in the carnival lapokabwit on sunday afternoon infront of over 3000 witnesses were from St. Martin. (St. Martin man pas ni cobin) Thank you lord, they were not Dominicans. I praying that the fellas who killed the man on Monday morning at 2am don’t turn out to be Dominicans too.

    This weekend, Toronto recorded its second murder of a young man. The manner of the murder, I wonder if it is a black young man who was involved in drugs. I will hear more through the local Media.
    I thought, God gave us a life to enjoy and be happy. As adults, we work for our livelihood. Our duty is to live at peace with others and to do good as much as possible. Yet, there are some who turned that life into one of crime and a menace to society. I continued to think: “What a waste of life.”
    We can talk and comment all we want. Parents can talk all they want which they should. Some people develop a bad mind. They associate with the wrong people/crowd and live such a life. The end result could be murder.
    The husband who killed his wife’s lover, his wife and himself, is a man who was filled with anger and jealous ways. Now note, three of them went prematurely to their eternal judgment. I wonder if the wife was merely a friend of the neighbor. RIP.

    I hope there was no Dominica involved. Sad for those who loss their lives but glad if dominicans had nothing to do with this.

    Our condolences go out to both the families of the victims and the perpetrators. These multiple tragedies
    are an extremely bad time for all involved.

    An onslaught of such magnitude argues for a spiritual cause. It is as if a host of demons hit the island. I am not in a position to judge but it is possible for a locality to leave its door open for what amounts literally to an invasion from the other side. If we make wicked people welcome to move in and reside or allow certain evil practices in our communities unless there is a strong evangelical influence to counter and resist Satan takes advantage.

    Is there a significant number of praying Christians in Guadeloupe? Are there churches where the gospel is preached, and where the Blood of Christ is honored in the singing and preaching? Demons flee at the mention of HIS name, and Satan trembles when Christians plead the blood of Christ against him.

      Our best defense against personal attacks from the devil is to know what it means to be saved and make sure we are saved.

      The Bible (the word of God) tells us we are all sinners. Romans 3:23.

      We cannot save ourselves. Ephesians 2:8,9.

      Only Christ can save us. Acts 4:12.

      We can only be saved by the merits of His shed blood. Hebrews 9:22.

      We must believe Christ shed His blood for us in a personal way and paid the price for us individually. Like I believe He paid the debt of sin for me – Donald Hill – and paid it in full for me 2,000 years ago :!: I stand for time and eternity on 1 John 1:7.

      We must receive Christ as our personal Savior according to John 1:12 and Revelation 3:20.

      Sincerely, Rev. Donald Hill.

        As the years progress, some people of the world have got worst. Most, if not all of them, were baptized Christians. The problem is, as they grow older, some lived an ungodly lifestyle which caused them to sway from God and from the Church. They turned their backs on God and this is the result of their actions.
        It is no different in Dominica, in Canada, US, Europe and elsewhere where there are Christians. Some people simply do not live up to their Christian teachings
        They heard the Word of God preached. They heard all about Our Lord Jesus Christ’s Incarnation, His Passion/Sufferings, Crucifixion, Death and Resurrection.
        Some of these same people who do not go to Church on Sundays, at Christmas, Good Friday and Easter, they go to Church. It is packed with those who do not go to Church at least on Sundays. Those who go to Church on Sundays and, others also on weekdays, have to go to Church early so as to get a seat on those days I mentioned.

        Most of these religious people you refer to have religion but not salvation.

        They have a profession but not a possession.

        They think they are Christians because they are members of a church and going to heaven because their good works.

        But the Bible says:

        *For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.* (Ephesians 2:8,9)

        Jesus said:

        *… … Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God.* (John 3:3)

        The words *born again* literally mean BORN FROM ABOVE. This means unless we receive life from above we cannot see the kingdom of God. We must receive the very life of God – eternal life – within us. How do we receive this life from above?

        *And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son. He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.* (1 John 5:11,12)

      Gaudeloupe is a French Colony. France is their Mother country. It is predominantly a Catholic Christian country.
      Dominica was once a French Colony. It is predominantly a Catholic country.
      In those days the majority of people attended Church especially on Sundays. We heard the Word of God preached at those Holy Masses. Not one Catholic can say they did not hear about Our Lord Jesus Christ when they went to Church.
      The Holy Mass contains the Mysteries of Our Lord Jesus Christ, His Incarnation, Passion, Crucifixion, Death and Resurrection. He said: ” . . .Do this in memory of Me. . . .” This is what the Catholic Church has been doing daily, for centuries.and in certain churches/ areas, as much as four times a day. I am a Catholic and I can vouch for that.
      There is a saying, “If you do not use it, you lose it.” This very well pertains to practice of the Catholic Christian Faith.
      At the end of Holy Mass, the Priest says, “Go in peace to love and serve the Lord.”

        Baptized a Christian?

        Baptism in water is meant to be an outward testimony of an inward work of God in the heart. It does not change the heart or transform the life. There are multiplied thousands of convicts serving time in prisons today for the vilest and worst of crimes who have had a little water sprinkled or poured on their heads as infants and have grown up in a particular church. Many have been executed for murder.

        When Adolf Hitler died a Roman Catholic newspaper (or magazine) published in the Vatican said *A true son of the Catholic Church has fallen.* Hitler was baptized and confirmed in the Catholic Church. Yet the Bible – the word of God – says *………….no murderer hath eternal life abiding in him.* (1 John 3:15)

        Many people know all the beautiful facts about our Lord Jesus. But they do not understand that His sufferings, shed blood, and death on the cross paid the price in FULL for their salvation.

      Having stated that, some of them did not take their faith seriously. As soon as they left the Church, they forget all about it.
      In James: “It is like a man who looks at his face in a mirror. When he turns from the mirror he forgets what he looks like.”:
      So it is with some people. This is the reason why some became criminals or, at the slightest argument, they pull out a cutlass, knife,or a gun and whatever else they could find to injure and murder their fellow people.
      Do not blame it on the Church. Blame it on those people who fail to practice their faith.
      Thanks be to God I am a Christian Catholic. No one can sway me and cause me to renounce my Faith.
      Our lifestyle and attitude toward others will tell if we are genuine Christians or not.
      Christianity is an ongoing learning process and perfection. As long as we live we should grow in perfection.
      No one saves themselves but by the grace of God. No one should judge themselves. Only God can/will judge them.

        Music Producer:
        To make a statement like that, is to contradict what Our Lord Jesus Christ stated. Those who are genuine, faithful Christians who comprehend what is contained in Holy Scripture will not ask such a question. It does not have to be explained to them.

        Our Lord said: Matthew 13:13 – This is why I speak to them in parables. They look but do not see and hear but do not listen or understand.
        He said: “Hear and understand. Who has ears ought to hear.”

        The Words of Frank Werfel who wrote, The Song of Bernadette – a movie/book:
        For those who believe no explanation is necessary.
        For those who do not believe no explanation is possible.

        Someone said:
        Wise and Otherwise –
        I do not seek to understand that I may believe, but I believe in order to understand. For this I believe — that unless I believe, I should not understand. . . .

        Pray to God for enlightenment. By your question which lacks Holy Scripture knowledge and understanding, you are in dire…

        As I previously stated: Pray to God for enlightenment. You are in dire need of it including his blessing and graces.
        When you die you will experience the question you asked. Our Lord will show you the Truth. He will also show you what you stated.
        Your negative words will condemn you.

        Because they do not understand that Christ on the cross paid the price in FULL for their salvation they think they must work to earn a right standing with God. Their religion teaches them they have to do, do, and do more to earn their salvation. They would never say they ARE saved because they have no way of knowing when they have done enough. Yet we do not hesitate to tell people we ARE saved. This is because we understand our salvation depends upon what Christ DID on the cross NOT upon what we DO! In the last moments of His life Jesus
        cried with a loud voice *IT IS FINISHED.* (John 19:30)

        *He that believeth on the Son HATH (present possession) everlasting life: and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life; but the wrath of God abideth on him.* (John 3:36)

        Sincerely, Rev. Donald Hill.

      All contradictions: Which one is it?…stop confusing folks with this comess!

      *For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.* (Ephesians 2:8,9)

      We can only be saved by the merits of His shed blood. Hebrews 9:22.

      Only Christ can save us. Acts 4:12.

      • January 24, 2017

        Music Producer:

        Thank you for this clear witness. What you have said is true.

        We can only be saved by the merits of the precious blood Christ shed for us on the cross. To this we can add nothing. In the last moments of His life Christ on the cross announced IT IS FINISHED :!: Literally, this means PAID IN FULL :!: This is why the Bible says …

        *For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the GIFT of God: Not of works, lest any man should boast.\” (Ephesians 2:8,9)

        Each of us must believe Christ did this for us personally and simply accept this gift of salvation
        (eternal life) by faith. How do we accept it? We accept it by BELIEVING it is ours, and THANKING GOD FOR IT! Then we tell others.

        *For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation.* (Romans 10:10)

        Sincerely, Rev. Donald Hill.

        When you do not comprehend, you call it a comess. What is contained in Holy Scripture is not a comess. It is the Truth, The Word of God as taught by His Blessed Son Our Lord Jesus Christ and by the inspired Apostle, Paul. through the Holy Spirit.
        Some people assume that all they have to do is say the Sinners Prayer and proclaim Jesus Christ and they are saved. Wrong belief and teaching!
        Even though Our Lord Jesus Christ died for us, he said, “Only those who perform His Father’s Will, will enter His Kingdom.”
        We are not yet saved. When we die we will know. However, we are to pay God homage, The Blessed Trinity, God the Father, God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. We are also to perform acts of love. This means to be kind in word and deed and offer a helping hand.
        We must know all what we do and say is recorded either in the Book of Life, the good or the Book of Damnation, evil works by ourselves.
        Read/study Holy Scripture and live it. It means to obey God.

      Poor the PM. I hope God makes him a saint.
      He gets so much flack from his opponents. In some respects, as sinful and imperfect people, they are no better than him, yet they forget themselves.
      God knows all about them. He is patient. One day they will receive their just recompense as they deserve. They will find out and experience it one day. What people sow they shall reap two-fold.
