A Message from the Patriarch and Presiding Prelate

Church Messages

ADDRESS TO THE LAUNCH WEBSITE

The Rt. Hon. Sir Darrindel Hoyte-Johnson LOM D. Min OHPM

Patriarch and Chief Apostle

 

“All have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” “So God created man is his own image. In the image of God created he him, male and female created he them.” – Genesis 1:27

“And God blessed them, and God said unto them, be fruitful and multiply and replenish the earth, and subdue it and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that move upon the earth.” Genesis 1:27

I write of man in this state and condition in which he has found himself. He could never be that same man that we read about in Genesis. He was a perfect man a little less powerful than the angels. Then came a second Angel full of wisdom, love and understanding: a person of the highest intelligence.

God talked to him, God gave him laws, he understood and he obeyed God. He was happy, he knew nothing of death, he experienced no sorrow, and he shed no tears as one in harmony with all creation and his God. He enjoyed the Glory of God, honoured with dominion and power. God visited him often, what a great being, what a wonderful time.

We have never experienced any of this Glory, being children of the fallen. We are children of those who have known sorrow, grief, pain, sickness and death.

Job 14:1 “Man that is born of a woman is of few days and full of trouble”. All men must now experience these things, pestilence, and wars, famine, trouble in and out the home and the church.

It was in love that “God so loved the world that he gave his only Begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16

I came to you not with Excellency of speech, but in the spirit of meekness serving God. On this occasion of the launching of the website of, The Mystical Order of Spiritual Baptist Inc.; (www.mysticalorderinc.org) I want to thank my Archbishop Sir Dr. Godfrey Gregg, for the vision to move the Church and the Ministry in a new direction of the age of technology. I want to thank him on behalf of the Clergy and members here in the USA and on behalf of our affiliate churches.  You have been a tower of strength to me personally and you have on many occasions have given me sound spiritual advice. You are an excellent adviser and Administrator to the Church and I will forever tap into your knowledge, wisdom and experience. I trust that through this medium you will continue to serve the Mystical Order and to enlighten the church with your writings. To God are all the Glory and the honour.

On behalf of the Executive Council of the Mystical Order and the Officers and Mothers of the Mystical Court I now declare this website operational.  God bless you my brothers and sisters, God bless these United States of America and God bless the Mystical Order.
