ORDER IS CALLED

 
After 16 hours of work and a long drive home, I had t make the time to write to you this morning in my daily page and groups.I thank God for the energy and stamina where I can come boldly to the Throne of Grace and ask for favours. Here I am standing in need of mercy.
 
I worked in the Court system for many years and on many occasions called the Court to ORDER, while announcing the arrival of the Judge in the court. I had the privilege to sit in court with many judges and the court of appeal judges and I learned a lot and it is my guide as I write. Today I sit in church with a gavel in my hand calling the church to Order.
 
We’ve all witnessed the scene many times: An irate judge slams down his wooden gavel and with a voice of fiery indignation shouts, “Order in the court! Order in the court!”
 
That appointed judge carries within his title the power and authority vested in him by the office that he holds. Therefore, all subjects who might attempt to challenge that authority are quickly reprimanded by a possible charge of contempt.
 
So it is with our Divine Judge. Our God is a God of perfect order, and there is nothing that He does that is contrary to His perfect will for us individually or for us as a nation.
 
In this decisive hour, a trumpet is being sounded; a voice of urgency is moving swiftly across our land. Those who have ears to hear what the Spirit of the Lord is saying are uniting together in one accord. Like good soldiers of the cross, Christians are falling in line, standing at attention, ready to receive instruction from their company Commander. More and more, a rallying force of believers is coming together with united hearts and like minds, fervently praying for God’s mantle of righteousness to again be restored to our judiciary.
 
The Great Judge of the Universe is about to lower His gavel and bring forth this mandate: “There will be… ORDER IN THE COURT!” Brethren it is my prayer that one day there will be a meeting place for The Mystical Order and there will be a roll call. I hope you will be there.
 
As a nation, we pray that His righteous standard will be held high, fixed and immovable within our judicial system. We pray that the cry for godly justices will be heard loudly within the chambers of the highest court in our land and that a spirit of the fear of the Lord will settle upon the hearts of those dignitaries who even now serve on the Supreme Court. We pray that the balance of powers will once again shift into their rightful positions and be forever maintained by HIS divine scales of justice—and His alone!
 
We as a nation like St. Vincent and the Grenadines are blessed and privileged to live within the boundary of our shores as a free democracy. But many times, because of that Democratic mindset, we lose sight of the fact that we, who are called by His name, are subject to the dictates of the King and His Kingdom. Thereby, we as a governing body are to submit ourselves to His rule and not to our own set of laws. The Scriptures remind us, “But it is God who judges: He brings one down, and exalts another (Psalm 75:7). The structural foundation of the Kingdom is one of perfect rank and perfect order. That is why we must humble ourselves and submit our lives, our nation, and our judges to the rule and reign of His Lordship. We can confidently rest in the knowledge and the assurance that by His authority, He will bring about His righteous sentencing.
 
The Lord says: “Sit at my right hand until I make your enemies a footstool for your feet. The Lord will extend your mighty scepter from Zion; you will rule in the midst of your enemies. Your troops will be willing on your day of battle (Psalm 110:1-3).
 
Your servant and brother,

21 DAYS OF PRAYER COMPLETED

Today I want to thank all that joined me over the last 21 days to pray for our countries and adopted homes. It was my pleasure to interact with those that contacted me and I give God the praise and thanks for all His goodness. I seized the moment and opportunity to take all the negative energies and turn them into positive energy. These days helped me to look into my past and asked the Lord to turn them around. Prayers change things and can make a new a good thing out of something condemned.

It is my prayer that you have received of the Lord what was your intention at the start of this session. I pray that you will continue to pray in the season and hopefully you walk in the ways the Lord has ordained for you. Let us come out from this session stronger and more enlightened in the things of God.

During those days of prayer, many things have happened that in some way has brought us closer to the Lord. Many barriers have been broken and to God, we give all the praise and thanks. I pray that we will continue to stay in prayer and that God will continue to hear from heaven and answer our prayers.

May God bless and keep us in His care.

PRAY 11 CHRONICLES 7:14

Sir Godfrey Gregg

Today, I Pray for Those Who Don’t Know Christ as Saviour and Lord Pray II Chronicles 7:14 Each Day

“If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.” II Chronicles 7:14

Consider the instructions given to Israel and apply these instructions to your life today.  God directs the people to do certain things. “If” you will do your part, “then” He will do His part.

“If My people, which are called by My name…”

God is speaking, He is addressing His people, those people that are called by His name.  Today, He would be addressing Christians and members of The Mystical Order.  God knows the lost man, the sinner, will not obey His commandments or pay attention to God.  But He most assuredly expects Christians to listen to Him, to look into His Word for direction, and to live in accord with His precepts.  John 1:12  “But as many as received Him (Jesus) to them He gave the power to become the sons of God.”

Pray: “Thank you Father that through Jesus you know my name.  Today, direct me and show me how to live for You.”

“…shall humble themselves…”

This is a very hard concept in this culture. Humility.  Jesus said those who are ‘poor in spirit’ will have the kingdom of heaven.  Take note; God does not force Himself on any man or woman.  He desires that you yield to Him and allow Him to take first place in your heart.  The Scripture says:  “God resists the proud but gives grace to the humble.”  James 4:6

Pray: “Lord God, show me those ways that I have become proud.  Help me to turn to You with a humble heart.”

“…and pray…”

Pray.  This is not some thought lightly tossed toward heaven as you drive to work.  God desires that you come before Him and spend time in His presence. That’s why I called this 21 days of prayer for you and me to spend more time in His presence.  He loves you just like you are, He will not turn you away.  Maybe you have been away for a long time; come Home to Him.  He will welcome you with open arms.  “And you shall seek Me and find Me when you search for Me with all your heart.”  Jeremiah 29:13

Pray: “Hear my prayer Holy Father as I bow my heart to You and seek You.”

“…and seek My face…”

So often you want help from God.  You seek His hand.  God wants you to know Him in a personal and intimate way.  He wants you to know His heart.  The Scripture tells you that the nation of Israel saw the acts of God, but Moses knew the ways of God.  It also says the people knew God from afar, but Moses knew Him as a friend.  Jesus speaking to His disciples said; “You are my friends, if you do whatever I have commanded you.”  John 15:14

Pray: “Lord, I come close to You seeking to renew a relationship that seems to have grown cold. I want to spend time with You today.”

“…and turn from their wicked ways…”

You may have little habits you know are wrong, or unconfessed sins, or an unforgiving spirit; these things build up over time.  Allow God to look into your heart.  Agree with Him when He puts His finger on a sin.  “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”  I John 1:9

Pray: “Father, I know there is no sin so big that You cannot forgive, and no sin so small that You will overlook. Forgive me and allow me to walk with You in a new way without the burden of sin.”

“…then…”

The next phrases tell you that after you have done those things required by God, He will then do those things that only He can do.  “He will hear from heaven, He will forgive our sins, and He will heal our land.”

Pray: “Heavenly Father, I beg you to be patient with me. I look for your forgiveness and healing touch for me, for my family, for my church, for my country, The Mystical Order and Starlight of Israel Mystical Healing Temple.”

THE TWO PETITIONS OF THE PRODIGAL SON

The Two Petitions of the Prodigal

A certain man had two sons: And the younger of them said to his father, Father, give me the portion of goods that calleth to me. And he divided unto them his living–Luke 15:11-12

GREETINGS

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My Lord Divisional Patriarch Sir Godfrey, Matriarch Lady Janet, Archbishop Bailey, Cardinals, Queen Abbesses, Abbesses, Bishops, Ministers of Starlight of Israel Mystical Healing Temple, members in New York, Trinidad and Tobago, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, Canada, Barbados, London and all our readers and well wishers.

I take this opportunity to address you on the occasion of Father’s Day. Every day should be fathers day, but this is a special time to recognize all the men who in someway function in the role of that title of Father. You may not have children but your words of encouragement to any child can qualify you to function as a father.

There are Spiritual fathers, biological fathers, foster, adopted fathers etc. However I want to talk to you about your role in the context of our Heavenly Father. You have rad the Scripture on which I shall base this message this morning.

Father, Give Me

I wonder if my readers ever noticed that the prodigal made two petitions to his father. The first was: “Father, give me.” “Give me the portion of goods that falleth to me.” The son was growing weary of the home. He felt acutely that he was missing things. The world was big, and the days were going by, and he was young, and he was missing things. It is always bitter, when the heart is young, and the world is rich in visions and in voices, to dwell remote, and feel that one is missing things. The fatal mistake the prodigal made was this–he thought that all that he wanted was far off. He thought that the appeasing of his restlessness lay somewhere over the hills and far away. He was destined to learn better by and by; meantime he must have every penny for his journey, and he came to his father and said, “Father, give me.” Mark you, there is no asking of advice. There is no consulting of the father’s wishes. There is no effort to learn the father’s will in regard to the disposition of the patrimony. It is the selfish cry of thoughtless youth, claiming its own to use just as it will: “Father, give me what is mine.”

Father, Make Me

So he got his portion and departed, and we all know the tragic consequences, not less tragic because the lamps are bright, and the wine sparkling, and the faces beautiful. The prodigal tried to feed his soul on sense; and the Lord, in that grim way of His, changes the cups, the music, and the laughter into the beastly routing of the swine. Then the prodigal came to himself. Memories of home began to waken. He lay in his shed thinking of his father. Prayers unbidden rose within his heart. And now his petition was not “Father, give me.” He had got all he asked, and he was miserable. His one impassioned cry was, “Father, make me.” “Father, make me anything you please. Make me a hired servant if you want to. I have no will but yours now. I am an ignorant child and you are wise.” Taught by life, disciplined by sorrow, scourged by the biting lash of his own folly, insistence passed into submission. Once he knew no will but his own will. He must have it, or he would hate his father. Once the only proof of love at home was the getting of the thing that he demanded. But now, “Father, I leave it all to thee. Thou art wise; I have been very foolish. Make me–anything thou pleasest.”

Insisting on Nothing, He Got Everything

And surely it is very noteworthy that it was then he got the best. He never knew the riches in the home till he learned to leave things to his father. When he offered his first petition, “Father, give me,” the story tells us that he got the money. He got it, and he spent it; in a year he was in rags and beggary. But when the second petition, “Father, make me,” welled up like a tide out of the deeps, he got more than he had ever dreamed. “Bring forth the best robe and put it on him.” He got the garment of the honoured guest. “Bring shoes and put them on his feet, and a ring and put it on his finger.” All that was best and choicest in the house, the laid-up riches of his father’s treasuries were lavished now on the dusty, ragged child. Insisting on nothing, he got everything. Demanding nothing, he got the choicest gifts. Willing to be whatever his father wanted, there was nothing in the house too good for him. The ring, the robe, the music and the dancing, the vision of what a father’s love could be, came when the passionate crying of his heart was, “Father, make me”–anything thou pleasest.

I think that is the way the soul advances when it is following on to know the Lord. Deepening prayers tell of deepening life. Not for one moment do I suggest that asking is not a part of prayer. “Ask, and it shall be given you.” “Give us this day our daily bread.” I only mean that as experience deepens we grow less eager about our own will, and far more eager to have no will but His. Disciplined by failure and success, we come to feel how ignorant we are. We have cried “Give,” and He has given, but sent leanness to our soul (Psalm 106:15). And all the time we were being trained and taught, for God teaches by husks as well as prophets, to offer the deep petition, “Father, make me.” He gives, and we bless the Giver. He withholds, and we do not doubt His love. We leave all that to Him who knows us, and who sees the end from the beginning. Like the prodigal, we learn a wiser prayer than the fierce insistence of our youth. It is, “Father, make me”–whatso’er Thou pleasest.

Christ’s Prayer

Might I not suggest that this was peculiarly the prayer of the Saviour? The deepest passion of the Saviour’s heart rings out in the petition, “Father, make Me.” Not “Father give Me bread, for I am hungry; give Me angels, for I stand in peril.” Had He prayed for angels in that hour of peril, He tells us they would have instantly appeared. But, “Father, though there be scorn and shame in it, and agony, and the bitterness of Calvary, Thy will be done; make Me what Thou wilt.” How gloriously that prayer was answered, even though the answer was a cross! God made Him (as Dr. Godfrey Gregg puts it) our wisdom, that is our righteousness and consecration and redemption. Leave, then, the giving in His hands. He will give that which is good. With the prodigal, and the Saviour of the prodigal, let the soul’s cry be, “Father, make me.”

HAPPY FATHER’S DAY and God bless us all.

COLON CANCER

Colon Cancer

Colorectal cancer is cancer that occurs in the colon or rectum. These cancers can also be named colon cancer or rectal cancer, depending on where they start. Colon cancer and rectal cancer are often grouped together because they have many features in common.

As the drawing shows, the colon is the large intestine (also called the large bowel) in pink. The rectum is the passageway that connects the colon to the anus. Colon cancer affects men and women of all racial and ethnic groups, and is most often found in people ages 50 years and older. In the United States, it is the third-most common cancer for men and women.

Colon Cancer: Did You Know?

    • Colon cancer is the second-leading cause of cancer-related deaths in New York City.
    • Over 1,200 New Yorkers die of colorectal cancer annually.

 

  • It is one of the most preventable forms of cancer. Colonoscopies can detect precancerous growths that your doctor can remove before they become dangerous.
  • Screening with colonoscopy can also help find colon cancer at an early stage, when it is more treatable.

Reduce Your Risk

You are at an increased risk for colon cancer if you are 50 or older, have a personal or family history of colon cancer, smoke, or are obese. The most effective way to reduce your risk of colon cancer is to get screened, which begins at age 50 for most people.

  • If you are a smoker, take steps to quit smoking. Check out NYC Quits for resources and tips.
  • Maintain a healthy weight and eat nutritious foods. The Guide to Healthy Eating and Active Living in NYC provides easy and delicious recipes and other tips on how to stay healthy.
  • Exercising regularly can help you maintain a healthy weight. Shape Up NYC offers free fitness classes to all New Yorkers.

Get Screened?

Ask your provider about the benefits and risks of colon cancer screening.

  • If you are 50 years or older, you should have a colonoscopy every 10 years.
  • If you are at increased risk for colon cancer based on family history or other health risks, talk to your doctor to find out what age is appropriate for you to begin screening and how often you should be tested.
  • Annual high-sensitivity fecal occult blood testing (FOBT) is an alternative if you don’t want or cannot have a colonoscopy.

A colonoscopy can remove polyps — small growths that may develop into cancer if left alone — before they turn into cancer. A colonoscopy is safe and usually painless. For most people, a colonoscopy is usually needed only once every 10 years, if test results are negative.

Call your doctor for a screening, or call 311 for information on where to get screened.

Department of Health Colon Cancer Prevention Programs

Citywide Colon Cancer Control Coalition
Convened by the City’s Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOHMH), the Citywide Colon Cancer Control Coalition (C5) is a dedicated group of stakeholders who work together to strengthen the DOHMH colon cancer prevention and control efforts through the work of its various committees, workgroups, and initiatives. The mission of C5 is to increase awareness and screening for colon cancer in New York City in order to eliminate disparities and reduce the incidence and mortality of the disease.

NYC Community Cares Project
The NYC Community Care Project provides free screening colonoscopies to uninsured New Yorkers. Participating Endoscopy Centers provide free colonoscopy screenings to the uninsured.  These Endoscopy Centers are linked with Community Health Centers / Federally Qualified Health Centers(FQHCs) that refer their uninsured patients for screening.

Colonoscopy Patient Navigator Program
The DOHMH Colonoscopy Patient Navigator Program assists patients in completing a screening colonoscopy.This program helps to reduce health disparities by assisting uninsured or under-insured New Yorkers get screened for colon cancer. Navigators are trained to help guide patients through the hospital system and throughout a patient’s colonoscopy preparation and procedure. This program has been implemented in 18 city hospitals, including all 11 Health + Hospitals facilities. In the past decade, over 115,000 patients have received help completing their screening colonoscopies.
