ARCHBISHOP AND PRESIDING PRELATE
His Beatitude Sir Godfrey Gregg DD
Turn with me to the Book of Psalm for our scripture reading. While you are finding the scripture let me greet our beloved Patriarch and Bishop of Starlight of Israel Healing School Sir Darrindel Hoyte-Johnson, Patriarch McGillvary and the Queen Abbess of London, England; Matriarch-Elect Hon. Janet McClean, Crowned Queen Abbess Dr. Jacinta Albert-Patrick, Queen Abbess Dr. Patricia Hackshaw, Cardinal Sir Eric Alleyne, brothers, sisters, friends and well-wishers.
Let us read together:
“The Lord is my rock, my fortress and my deliverer; my God is my rock, in whom I take refuge…” Psalm 18:2
When you go through difficulty in life, one of the ways to keep the right perspective is to take a moment to look back over your life and remember what God has done for you. Remember how He made a way when you didn’t see a way. Remember how He opened doors that should have never opened. Remember how He put you in just the right place at the right time, promoted you, healed you and restored you. If He did it for you once, He can do it for you again. When you read what He did for the people in the Bible, how He rebuilt The Mystical Order and join Starlight of Israel; you can have confidence that He will do the same for you!
This is how you build your house on the rock. Hold on to the promise that no matter what comes your way, when the storm is over, when the trouble has passed, you’ll still be standing. As a believer in Jesus, you have the DNA of Almighty God. The same power that raised Christ from the dead lives on the inside of you. You may get knocked down, but you’re not going to stay down. You’ll rise up and stand strong when you build your life on the Rock! My brothers and sisters of The Mystical Order and Starlight of Israel shine forth and build in the Name of Jesus Christ.
Jesus said to Peter “upon this rock I will build my church and the gates of hell will not prevail against it.” That is a promise and you just have to accept it and believe. Everything you do will prosper as long as you put your trust in the Lord. You will never be forsaken. You will be sheltered in the midst of the storms. Many people start to build and never get to lay the first block. Some people tried to destroy the foundation laid by others, and they were destroyed with their intentions. The Mystical Order was tested and tried and we are standing on the promises of Almighty God. Except the Lord build the house they labour in vain that build it.
Father God, thank You for Your protection, grace and mercy on our lives. We choose to focus on You; We choose to dwell on Your goodness; We choose to lift up our eyes to You because You are our help in Jesus’ name. Amen!
May Almighty God continues to lead you step by step, only if you are willing to submit to His authority, will and purpose. You are told or may I say warned to come back to the place where God is still your ROCK for your well being. Trust your leadership and walk in the vocation wherein you’re called.
