THE MYSTICAL ORDER OF SPIRITUAL BAPTIST INC.
FROM THE DESK OF THE PATRIARCH AND PRESIDING PRELATE
Rt. Hon. Sir Dr Darrindel Hoyte-Johnson
Blessed be the Rock of our Salvation. To Him that led Moses and the children of Israel out of Egypt, To Him that converted Saul to Paul and to Him that has kept The Mystical Order of Spiritual Baptist Inc. together during the last year. Today the first day of the year 2014 I stand proud as your Leader, Patriarch and Presiding Prelate to sing Praise O, praise our God and King.
The last year was a very trying one with many trials and testings, but the Lord delivered us and have kept our feet on a solid rock. This year we are prepared to rock every corner and if you, my beloved brothers and sisters keep silent may I say to you that the very rocks will cry out. You are the voice of the angels and there is one Leader, yes one Moses waiting for that great call to cross over.
This year I will celebrate two years in this office and I will hope to mobilised the whole church to join in a service of thanks at the same place where I was elevated and to renew ourselves to God and this Mystical Order. The church is heaven bound and nothing shall hinder the upward movement. No one shall stand between the Church and heaven. I declare to you clear entrance speed to glory. Those who do not want to get on board will have to step aside because there is no time to wait. As you recall Noah preached and the people ignored him until the door of the ark was closed. The time to wait has passed and now I call on you my brothers and sisters for action.
We must lay aside the weight that kept us from moving towards the prize and run with patience to the higher calling in Christ Jesus our Lord. There are children to be baptized, people to be Ordained, and the restoration of our faith in the Word of God. My Archbishop have already recap the year 2013 and I will just look ahead to the task we face in this New Year. The church is invited to visit St. Vincent and the Grenadines for a thanksgiving service in April. Also, there is an invitation to visit London, England for the Anniversary service of our Affiliate church St Francis Mystical House of Prayer under the leadership of His Lordship Bishop Hon. Micah Nero. All information will be posted on the website www.mysticalorderinc.org and click on CALENDAR.
I want to thank my Archbishop for the wonderful job he has done over the last year and for steering the church to this level of responsibility. I will also like to thank the Queen Abbess and our the Senior Bishop for fulfilling their obligations without notice. I thank all of you for your support and for keeping this ministry, caring for one another and loving each other. As we move ahead let us not be weary in well doing for in due season we will reap if we faint not. I want to wish you a very successful year and as the Trinidad motto says “Together we aspire and together we achieve”. May Almighty God bless you richly, God bless this Mystical Order of Spiritual Baptist and these United States of America.
