Dr Denzil Douglas: “Allan Isaac was a powerful warrior for God
and would not be satisfied as a Theologian and Bible Scholar
Basseterre, St Kitts, January 21, 2021 – Leader of the Opposition in St Kitts and Nevis, The Right Hon Dr. Denzil L Douglas has expressed “a profound sense of loss and great sorrow over the passing of Apostle Dr. Allan Isaac of the Rivers of Living Waters Christian Center.”
“I was so blessed and honoured to have experienced his humility, humour, and passion for healing and hope,” said Dr Douglas, who served as Prime Minister of St Kitts and Nevis from 1995 to 2015.
In a statement Dr Douglas said: “I knew Dr Allan first as a student at the BHS when I taught him English and History. Apart from being very impressed with his appetite for wisdom and curious intelligence, Apostle Allan stood out as one whose character was influenced by Christian principles. We cultivated a very good relationship and was not surprised when I learnt that he was successful in pursuing theological studies, and eventually became my spiritual leader as Pastor of the St Paul’s Wesleyan Holiness Church.”
“As a powerful warrior for God, the Apostle would not be satisfied as a Theologian and Bible Scholar. He was a pioneer in search of wider horizons, and with his Faith in God, Allan started his own Religious Movement. This expanded from a small band of The Faithfuls gathering in the garage of his home, to the national movement of the Rivers of Living Waters Christian Center. Truly, we all have to declare that he made it big in the cause of the Lord,” Dr Douglas added.
He further noted that Apostle Allan Isaac “has lived a Christian life for most of his years on earth and dedicated his needs-based ministries and preaching the word of God, in caring for the less, the unlucky and the downtrodden throughout our Federation. I truly believe, he’s now at rest with his maker, no more pain, worries, burdens or agony.”
The former prime minister expressed “sincere Condolences to his lovely wife Prophetess Debbie, Children, Mother, Siblings, relatives and church family.”
“Dr. Isaac lived by faith and died in sweet peace of God’s grace and goodness. May he rise in celestial glory. Until then, may his soul RIP, and may all of us who were touched by his sacrificial love and example, continue to be the salt of the earth and the light of the world,” concluded Dr. Douglas.
