    • I rebuke that statement in jesus name! This is released straight from the devil's mouth but by the power that God has given unto us, I decree and declare that this statement shall not take root in the caribbean! In the mighty name of jesus I rebuke every other comment along those lines - forgive them Lord for they know not what they are saying! In jesus name, amen and amen!
