Barbados Prime Minister diagnosed with cancer

Barbados PM David Thompson

BARBADOS Prime Minister David Thompson is battling pancreatic cancer.

But he is in good spirits and is due to return home next week.

Personal physician Dr Richard Ishmael speaking early Thursday at a media briefing at his Belleville, St Michael office says Thompson’s “mind, brain and intellect are as sharp as ever” and from a medical standpoint there is no reason why he cannot continue to perform his duties as Prime Minister, albeit at a reduced pace.

Ishmael says after inconclusive initial tests on Thompson for complaints of abdominal pain that started in March this year, two biopsies on him were conducted at the New York Presbyterian Hospital of Columbia and Cornell Universities and these also proved “non diagnostic”.

    I do not know who you are, and I would like it to stay that way. So please Go away! Go away! and I say it again, please Go away! I just do not want anymore of the perceptions you are sending me concerning your character through your futile comments.


    You are right, I am possessed, by the indwelling of the Holy Spirit of God, born again, of the Life of Love, in Spirit and Truth. This means that I have already met Jesus Christ, more than twelve years ago. And now I have no fear of death, because Jesus has promised to raise me, to live with Him in Paradise forever and ever. I am taking that hope with me if my days on earth should come to an end, but I also have the faith that can speak for length of days as much as God is willing to give to me. Jesus can return and find me alive in Spirit and Truth, if that is God’s Will for me.

    That is to answer your question, again a mentality of spiritual ignorance, just like your question of yesterday: This one is, “How do you profess to meet Jesus?” With a question like that, why would I expect you to understand my level of wisdom and intellect? You do not qualify to pass such judgment.

    Satan has no victory over death, everyone who has died will be raised to live again, that is the reason for the resurrection in Jesus Christ. The question is where will those people live in Eternity? Bear in mind that there are two places, Heaven (Paradise) and the Deep Hole (the abyss of hell)

    I never said that you do not have the right to die. But if you plan to die before you meet Jesus while you exist through your appointed days on earth, you are in for a big and tragic surprise.

    You want to die and then to be judged? No problem. Those who die without meeting Jesus during their appointed days of earth, will just be raised to face the White Throne Judgment. And where is that judgment sending you? Back to the abyss of hell, to join up with Satan, because you choose to live by his control and his lies that told you, you will meet with Jesus after you die. How can you meet Jesus after you die, if you never knew Him and He never knew you when your existed in your natural body. After you die without meeting Jesus you become a spirit, existing in your prison of death for ever and ever.

    What did you call me again? Oh yes! AN IDIOT WITH AN ENGLISH LANGUAGE OF ZERO INTELLECT AND A FOOL! Oh poor you, and your carnal mind! Oh poor you, who live with sole control of your human senses, satisfying the needs of your flesh!

    You are advising me to continue reading the Bible, but you are waiting to die so that your saviour will run to embrace you at the other side of the grave. You heard that Jesus died, but you do not know that He died that you, yourself might live by faith in His resurrection–a life that must be restored in you before you leave this world. John 3:16

    If you were truly studying the Bible would you oppose to my encouraging a person that is still living, to seek healing by faith, that he might not die, but to continue living? Not at all!

    If you were truly studying the Bible would you not know that a man went to Jesus to beg Him to come and heal his son, who was sick and at the verge of death, and Jesus simply told the man to go his way, that his son will live. The man simply believed what Jesus had said and his son was healed from sickness of death. You do not know these things, because if you did you would not have disagreed with me, even to the point of verbal insult. John 5:15

    If you were truly studying the Bible would you not have understood that God is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living? Matthew 21: 32

    So, my friend, God does not want you, when you are already dead, He wants you to choose to know Him while you have a heart, a mind, and soul that He will change by your ability to apply faith in Him. For in your state of death, you have no idea what is taking place around you, and especially with a Holy God and Living God, who is not a God of dead people.

    My advice to you today, be careful of your judgment and you accusations. They could rebound in your face.

    @Lizavier4Jesus: @Lizavier4Jesus:

    The greatest obstacle to discovery is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge, that is why the very ignorant are perfectly satisfied that they know everything and cannot accept criticism.

    September 18, 2010

    @Lizavier4Jesus: You idiot. You rant and rave like a person who is possessed. If someone does not speak like you they are not intelligent? Well, I am happy I am not intelligent like you becasue your level of english language shows zero intellect.

    Now as a person who understands the word, how do you profess to meet Jesus? Are you saying that satan is winning the battle when millions of people die? Jesus himself died. Why can’t man die? You are so foolish. ‘It is appointed unto man once to die, and then the judgement’. You fool!

    Instead of wasting time on silly matters, examine your conscience. Continue reading the bible so you can see where it says ‘Love your neigbour as yourself’.

    To the individual named GARY, you should already know my opinion of your mentality and your level of intelligence, based on the many stupid critics that you post against people on DNO. That is the reason I do not expect you to understand the message I posted concerning Mr. Thompson, because it is not possible for you to have the kind of wisdom, which I used in that message.

    Anyone who has an understanding of God’s Word, will tell you that your critics is out of base, because you have criticized something that was totally out of your understanding.

    You keep referring to my personality as a loving Christian–that is exactly who I am. But you say you know that because I boastfully proclaim that of myself. However I am sure that you have never read any comment of me boasting about who I am. Instead, you read the truth in my comments, as I speak about knowing God and His Ways of Life in Love, but you would rather use that truth to discredit me publicly. I do not know why; however, I want you to know it once more, your critics cannot do a thing of hurt to me. God knows my heart, in as much as I know Him in the Person in the of Jesus Christ. That is all that matters to me.

    To the individual named BEST INTEREST, if you are trying to tell me that other people do not understand my message to Mr David Thompson, bu they can understand yours, well good for you! But know that in my opinion you have written rubbish, that you, yourself, cannot understand if you should read it over.

    I advise you that you pray and ask God for the wisdom and understanding of His Holy Spirit, that you will decide what it is that you think you have said about faith in your critics against my message, and also, that He will help you to understand my message to Mr David Thompson, concerning his illness.

    Because of your carnal mind, you do understand that I am trying to encourage the man to seek physical healing from God, by faith, a way he can have victory over the devil, who wants all of us to die. Your are talking about death, which is the complete opposite of my message of hope to Mr Thompson.

    Sickness and disease is a prison that Satan use to trap us, just like all the other sins that he causes us to commit, through the control of our human senses. If you think that God has chosen to bring death to people through all sorts of sickness and disease, then you do not know anything Him. For God never promised us death. Jesus said, I have come that they might have Life, and that they might have more abundantly. John 10: 10 Satan is the one who brought death to us because through Adam and Eve, our first parents.

    I am quoting the Gospel at a point where it says: “When evening had come, they brought to Him many who were demon-possessed. And He cast out the spirits WITH A WORD, and healed all who were sick, that it might be fulfilled, which was spoken by Isaiah the prophet, saying: “He, Himself, took our infirmities and bore our sickness”. Matthew 8: 16-17 If you do not understand those two verses, that is not my concern. But those are the teachings that influence me to speak the way I do about God and Life, because I understand what they are about by faith and by the wisdom of God’s Holy Spirit.

    The same is in my message to Mr David Thompson. This message tells him that he can speak the words of faith, that will heal the sickness that is in his body, and to have victory over death. I am informing the man of the way he can live and not die, just in case he does not have that information for himself. So if it does not make sense to you, it is because your mind is carnal and is perishing.

    What can I do about that, especially the way you present your critic? You have already decided that you know better than me, and you want nothing to do with what I have to say. But right after that you proved your ignorance of God and His Words, as you stated the question: “What exactly are your trying to say?”

    That is the reason the apostle Paul said: “The natural man does not receive the things of the Spirit of God, for they are foolish things to him, nor can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned”. 1st. Corinthians 2:14.

    The apostle Paul explained your problem just as you said it: My message does not make any sense to you. Why? Because you are one of those persons living with a carnal or natural mind, so you cannot understand the things of the Spirit of God. Look back at my message and you will see that there are people who has agreed with me. Those people are also like me, they understand the things of the Spirit of God, because they live with the mind of the Spirit.

    I would advise people like you and your partner named Gary to keep quiet, because you all are like cackling ducts that say nothing. But you are only making a fool of yourselves, before the many intelligent people who read your criticizens against the rest of us.

    Why are so insensitive and quick to judge someone you do not know. I say it is insensitive because it is inappropriate language, and it’s conduct unbecoming as to the person you profess to be, a loving Christian which you so boastfully proclaim.

    September 17, 2010

    @Lizavier4Jesus: It is always amazing when people who think they are intelligent and know a few words, just put them together and think they make sense. Exactly what are you trying to say? If we speak of faith in Jesus Christ, do you believe ‘it is appointed unto man once to die and then the judgement’? We have faith in Jesus that he is the great healer and he is able to heal our soul. Cancer and its other friends are just a journey to meet our maker. If it is not his appointed time, God will take care of him. This form of cancer does not have a good survivor rate. If it is his appointed time with God, then this is the method God has chosen to take him home. He now has time to make his life right and to prepare his soul to meet his maker. We cannot prolong death by asking for healing of every infirmity which afflicts us. We need to live our lives like scouts ‘Be Prepared’.

    I wish the Prime Minister every success in his journey. I pray that he does not suffer too much and that he uses his alloted time on earth to prepare himself for the judgement.

    Thompson’s mind, brain and intellect are as sharp as ever.

    I hope that Mr David Thompson knows that he still has the shape of mind by which he can pay attention to the wisdom of his conscience, the kind of wisdom that will teach him how to speak against this tumor in his body.

    Those spoken words that must come from Mr Thompson’s own mouth are the words that will rebuke the thorn of the flesh–the messenger of Satan–which has come to buffet him.

    I am saying that if Mr Thompson has any faith in the authority of God in his Life, now is the time for him to use that faith and to speak the words of healing that will cause this tumor in his body to vanish, for by the the stripes of God, in the physical Body of Jesus Christ, we are healed.

    God Almighty, in Jesus Christ, does that for us by our faith, that the world might witness His power of Love in our lives. But we must be the first to give Him the glory.

    This is no surprise as cancer is the globalist soft kill weapon. Cancer now strikes 1 in 3 people and pretty soon it will be 1 in 2. Pancreatic cancer used to be extremely rare and is now becoming relatively common.

    DA needs to clean up its act food-wise. It is no longer a Nature Island. And it has a ways to go if it really wants to reclaim that title.
    The agrichemicals being used by the farmers are detrimental to your health and the health of the environment. They didn’t use them 100 years ago. People use and spray toxic chemicals as though they were safe and non-toxic. Moth balls are very toxic and yet you smell them everywhere.
    Either this general population is very careless and uneducated or they don’t care about their health or anyone elses.
    This is a wake up call to the people of DA and the ministries before you become the next cancer victim.
