Blessed good morning to all my beloved brothers, sisters, well-wishers and fellow Ministers in the Lord. Another day I am pleased to come to you in the Name of the Lord to tell you “How sweet the Name of Jesus sounds.” As we continue our journey into the Season of Lent our sorrow for sin must be evident in our repentance. Something we know as “godly sorrow for our sins.” We are not in any way reliving what took place there thousand of years, but we are walking the experiences passed down to us by the Apostles and our ancestral parents.
I greet my Lord Patriarch, Queen Abbess, Cardinal and the Chief Bishop here in New York; along with all my Affiliate Ministers in the Caribbean and England. This is truly a remarkable time in our lives as I herald the call to “come let us reason “. Yes, Isaiah 1:18 has a message for all of us and I will speak more on that verse of Scripture later. However, we are here to call sinners to the saving grace and knowledge of God in these last and closing days. This is the time that we should the reality of John and Charles re-uniting after their time of evangelization. Hear the words that the “bello” when the met.
And are we yet alive,
And see each other’s face?
Glory and thanks to Jesus give
For His almighty grace!
Preserved by power divine
To full salvation here,
Again in Jesus’ praise we join
And in His sight appear.
What troubles have we seen,
What mighty conflicts past,
Fightings without, and fears within,
Since we assembled last!
Yet out of all the Lord
Hath brought us by His love;
And still He doth His help afford,
And hides our life above.
Then let us make our boast
Of His redeeming power,
Which saves us to the uttermost,
Till we can sin no more.
Let us take up the cross
Till we the crown obtain,
And gladly reckon all things loss
So we may Jesus gain.
Hallelujah and to God be all the honour and the glory for great things He is doing for us in this hour. God still have useable vessels to carry out His message and call the wandering sinner home. What a blessing it is to hear this message. For He has preserved us by His power divine, such a great testimony by these brothers. So this morning I am ministering to you “take up your cross till we obtain the crown.” Then we can say like our brother Paul “I have fought the fight and kept the faith.”
My beloved brothers and sisters we are keepers of each other. Therefore, we must live together in peace, love and harmony. We have to rid ourselves of bitterness, hatred, jealousy and anything that will hinder us from taking the flight to glory. You know how we sing “come fly away to glory” but not with the weight of sin. Today I admonish you to find a way, a true way to rid our lives of the things that are not pleasing in the sight of God. I have asked the Lord to reconstruct me and make me worthy for His service. I thought I was the vessel for Him and found out that there is still work to be done on me. You can ask of Him the same and just let go and let Him take charge. Especially Ministers who took the charge to preach the word of God in season and out of season so one day we will be able to catch the fish in the right season.
It is always a pleasure to meet and greet, and just to see the smiles lit with joy or even to hear the voice on the other end of the phone. Don’t take everything or anything for granted but we must try the spirit, prove all things and hold fast to that which is good. As ministers we hear a lot, people meet us and want to have a word with us. They have a problem and want to discuss it, they want answers and they come to the man of God or the woman servant. What we are told must stay with us and we can only tell it to Jesus. We seek to find, we ask for it to be given and we knock for the door to be opened. My encouragement today is that we do the above before it is too late.
In Noah’s time it was too late for a lot of people. The door was closed and I learnt that when God shuts the door no man can open it. Therefore, my beloved brothers and sisters this is your time, my time, our time. This is the time for The Mystical Order of Spiritual Baptist Inc to come together and seek the face of the Lord. Use your key to enter into the promises of God. Prayer makes the darkest clouds withdraw. Prayer will take us into the the unknown to see and behold the beauty of God. This is our time and I beg of you to let us walk along this journey together. Let the world see the Jesus in you today. A life that they never see and so encourage them to walk with you. I am a very young man and I am pleading with you, so when my time on earth is ended I would have done my part and these words will be a witness to you. Let us today acknowledge the Lord and let Him direct our paths.
I love you and to God be all the honour and the glory. May Almighty God bless and keep us, may He continue to move This Mystical Order to higher heights, and deeper depths. Have a great day.
