‘God showed me there would be a woman leader’- Sandra Phillip-Hodge

ROAD TOWN, Tortola, VI- Commentator, local author and 'prayer warrior' Sandra Phillip-Hodge has said it was only right and fitting that the Virgin Islands Party (VIP) was re-elected as it had "unfinished business" and that God had shown her a woman was going to be in leadership.

Speaking during a livestream on her Facebook page which she titled, ‘God has spoken,’ on April 26, 2023, Mrs Phillip-Hodge said that when Deputy Premier Honourable Lorna G. Smith, OBE was sworn in, it felt like it was the most natural thing to her and that it was God’s will being fulfilled.

“Last week God gave me this word regarding the elections…God showed me, that there would be a woman leader in this election, and he showed me who the person was. But I didn’t want to call any name. And I’m here today to testify that God’s word is truth…He does not lie. When he gives a message to any of his prophets…to come forth with it, is our duty to do so and if there are consequences for it then we have to trust God,” she said.

As such, Mrs Phillip-Hodge went on to encourage others to speak up if they have a revelation, adding that said she does not want to be called a prophet just for the sake of it.

She also spoke about what she described as the church being ‘silent’ in relation to various topics and withholding prophecies.

“Because sometimes I do feel as if the church is so silent and so many things, and I want to believe that if we are such a godly people, we are a Christian nation and if we have so many church leaders, so many people in the clergy out there, God must be speaking to them and giving them a message for the nation. But too often things are happening and you’re not hearing the voices, you’re not hearing anybody stepping out boldly in faith to prophesy a word from God,” Mrs Phillip-Hodge continued.

No issues with Hon Smith's design to join VIP

She went on to state that she does not see anything wrong with Hon Smith’s decision to move from one group to another.

“Because, the leader on that side, his Party gained the majority of persons to form the government- that is something that we cannot dispute. The other Parties barely had half enough, they didn’t even make quite half enough of the persons required…,” Mrs Phillip-Hodge noted, as she posited that it was only right and sensible that the VIP be allowed to finish its unfinished business.

“I want to say to the nation, to the people who are out there complaining and criticising, we have to acknowledge God’s hand in the affairs of man. It is not always what we want or what we like,” Mrs Phillip-Hodge continued.

She further stressed that she tries to be neutral since it is not easy taking sides and doing God’s work, while she established that she is not on anyone’s side but God.

“Our people need to start putting God first. When we put God first we accept God’s decisions…He knows the outcome of every election even before the process starts. God’s will must be done,” Mrs Philip-Hodge said.

    I need you people to stop saying God told you and quit bringing shame on my Heavenly Father with your familiar spirits. My God is not an author of confusion. That spirit of Jezebel is alive in this territory pushing for female leadership. I am not saying female leadership is not important or necessary but forcing it and not allowing God to choose is devilish.

    My beloved I don't know you, and as long as God did not confirm it then we can not say if it is truth or error. God forbid that I should say no and He did.

    But you lost your credibility on three fronts. 1) you should have spoken before. I could say that God said the rain will fall sometime this year, but where, when what day. 2) how do you know that if Hon Smith had stayed put that she would not have been DP or even P. We don't know. 3) if it is one thing that i am in agreement with is that the VIP will indeed finish what they started. They will completely finish mash up the country. And a bless day to you my sis

    Predictions and prophecy are two different things. One can predict base of signs and statistics etc that a large earthquake is likely to take place in the Caribbean within the next few years. When one received a prophecy from God will not only an earthquake will accurr, but it will say the date, time year and even the size of the earthquake.

    A vision does not come from no one who does not hold God command aright. You follow a patter and make an assumption, then it’s likely , you have seen all the women involved and because of their affiliation, experience, travel and networking you conclude that it only had to be her.

    Tell us the vision or the dream, remember God is specific, so if there is no specific there is no vision from you.

    There is to much greed, envy and bad mindedness on the little 2x4 Island that you can cover by vehicle if that much in an hour. How is it that you want to slit a man throat or put a dagger in his back for trying to better himself. That is why I don’t f^&* anyone. The ones that is closest to you, dap you up, eat with you at the same table and always up in your face smiling is the ones that is plotting to bring you down. YOU CAN SEE A PERSONS FACE BUT YOU CANNOT SEE A PERSONS HEART. PEEL DOWN A PERSONS FACE LIKE YOU PEEL A BANANA AND YOU WILL SEE ALL TYPE OF DEMONS UNDER THE PEEL.
