We all feel strongly about police, politicians, pastors and prophets in the Caribbean. Maybe because of their influence on our lives. I think I know how many people in the Caribbean feel about the first three but I am not sure about prophets.
Do you believe that prophets are for real? I mean someone who utters divinely inspired revelations from God.
Recently I have been paying close attention to the increasing numbers of prophets across the Caribbean. Here are a few videos showing Caribbean prophets in action.

According to Webster’s definition, a prophet is “one who utters divinely inspired revelations; one regarded by a group of followers as the final authoritative revealer of God’s will; one gifted with more than ordinary spiritual and moral insight; one who foretells future events.”
There are number of prophets in the Caribbean whose influence extend beyond their congregation. If I cast aside my doubt and suspicion of their “supernatural” powers, I think prophets in the Caribbean can serve a positive purpose.
It seems that they fill a need, they are the psychologist, a shoulder to lean on, and many provide advice that seems practical in today’s Caribbean world. At least many understand and live the Caribbean experience.
