It's often said that God put each person on Earth to fulfill His purpose for his her lives. In the case of embattled Dancehall superstar, Vybz Kartel, one believer insists that the prominent deejay has been called by the Almighty to spread His Word.
Vybz Kartel lies at the Horizon Remand Centre in Spanish Town, where he's currently awaiting trial in a pair of murder cases. However, Wayne Clarke, a 36-year-old member of the Kingston-based Christian Fellowship World Outreach Church of God Ministry claims that God desperately wants Kartel to carry out his work.
According to Clarke, he has been waiting since 2009 to deliver this message to Kartel and believes he needs to pass it along to the self-proclaimed ‘Worl Boss’ before it’s too late.
"The time has come... I think the time is right, whenever God give you a task to warn or enlighten you should. Just like Jonah was sent to warn the city of Ninivi and he was disobedient and he was later eaten by a whale!" Clarke told the Jamaica STAR.
"God wants Kartel to do very important works for him. It hurt me so much that I lived so close to where his studio was and reasons beyond my control prevented me from delivering the message directly.”
Clarke explained that the main reason for his inability to approach Kartel with this important message was fear; pointing out the deejay’s entourage as the source for said fear while implying that they would not take kindly to the suggestion that God had a higher calling for the internationally acclaimed entertainer.
Nevertheless, Clarke intimated that now hails as the perfect opportunity to enlighten Kartel on what God’s plans for him are; stating that he’s been ordained by the Lord to preach and heal others and that had this message been passed along three years ago, the deejay would not be facing a litany of legal woes.
"He must not carry anything that he achieved from the world (money or vanity); he must leave those things and come. He will be set up properly by God.”
Vybz Kartel has spoken on the issue of Christianity and Religion before, stating during an interview on CVM’s OnStage that he did not believe in the concept of religion given its divisive undertones while shaking off rife speculation of his affiliation with a lodge. Additionally, he insisted that there was nothing wrong with free masonry.
