At 4:50pm on November 6, 2001, the Holy Spirit said the following to his servant Jonathan Hansen:
"Jamaica, Jamaica a land of imported people; I, the Lord God, whose name is Jesus, am speaking to you: you worship other gods (spirits) in my name; you profane my laws and statutes; you distort and disregard my Word; you make mockery of my name with your lifestyle and allegiance to men's secret societies.
I am shaking you and I am raising up adversaries against you -- raging wolves, lawless men who serve anti-Christ even though they profess my name. I will wash you away after I have separated and divided you by allowing your own lust for power and lust for immorality to divide you. Yes, then I will wash you away.
An earthquake is coming such as you have never witnessed before, and the wall of water that will be created will blow you away. Repent, for only my blood can spare your soul.
You are a people born out of violence and lawlessness reigns within the spirits of Jamaica. Repentance and deliverance is needed to expel the spirits and heal the body, soul and spirit; to heal the land, restore and protect the land from the destroyer!
The destroyer is promising liberty but he will usher in death instead. Look up to me the only help for your salvation. For the end of the world as you know it is coming! The only hope to turn back God's holy anger is for Jamaica to obey II Chronicles 7:14, 'If my people, which are called by name, shall humble themselves, and pray and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.' If not, blood will flow from men, women, children and babies."
History of Cayman Islands:
The Caymans consist of three islands: Grand Cayman, Cayman Brac, and Little Cayman. The Cayman Islands remained largely uninhabited until the 17th century. The first recorded permanent inhabitant of the Cayman Islands, Isaac Bodden, was born on Grand Cayman around 1661.
England took control of the Cayman Islands, along with Jamaica, under the Treaty of Madrid in 1670 after the first settlers came from Jamaica to Little Cayman and Cayman Brac.
In November 1794, ten vessels were wrecked on the reef in Gun Bay, but with the help of local settlers, no lives were lost. The incident is remembered as"The Wreck of the Ten Sail."
In 1835, the Marquess of Sligo, Governor of Jamaica, arrived in the Caymans to declare all slaves free in accordance with the Slavery Abolition Act of 1833, which abolished slavery throughout the British Empire.
The Cayman Islands were officially declared and administered as a dependency of Jamaica after 1863.
In 1953, the first airfield in the Caymans was opened. In 1959, the Cayman Islands became a territory within the Federation of the West Indies. When the Federation dissolved in 1962, the Caymans remained a British dependency.
Athel Long became the first Governor of the Cayman Islands in 1971. A new constitution approved in 1972 provided for a greater degree of autonomy.
In 2001, the Cayman Islands were removed from the Paris-based Financial Action Task Force (FATF) blacklist for its allegedly loose policy concerning money laundering. The Cayman Islands are a major international financial center.
In September 2004, the Caymans were hit by Hurricane Ivan causing widespread damage. Only two people were killed on the islands, though many deaths were suspected due to graves that were washed up during the storm.
In May 2005 elections, the People's Progressive Movement (PPM) won, receiving nine of the 15 seats and Stuart Jack became governor.
On May 4, 2009, United States President Barack Obama declared his intentions to curb the use of financial centers by multi-national corporations. Obama singled out the Cayman Islands as a tax shelter. The next day, the Cayman Island Financial Services Association submitted an open letter to President Obama detailing the Caymans role in international finance and its value to the U.S. financial system.
The leader of the United Democratic Party, McKeeva Bush, was elected Premier in 2009. Governor Stuart Jack retired in 2009.
On January 15, 2010, Duncan Taylor replaced Stuart Jack as governor. In late 2010, the Royal Cayman Islands Police Service (RCIPS) opened an investigation into Bush relating to financial irregularities.
McKeeva Bush was arrested at his home and removed from office in a vote of no confidence in December 2012. Governor Duncan Taylor appointed Juliana O'Connor-Connolly to succeed him on December 19, 2012
