Sweet Sunday Sermon – An exegesis of 1 PETER 2:2

Submitted by Dr. GP

In the same way that in the natural realm (in nature) mammals need and seek mother’s milk for their physical or natural growth and development, in like manner spiritual neonates or newborn believers must desire spiritual milk- the milk of the Word for their spiritual growth and development.

  • Bajans urged to pray at noon
    The church knell will summon Barbadians to prayer at noon today.
    The tolling of the solemn bells will be for one minute as Barbadians turn to pray to combat the deadly COVID-19 illness that has claimed 11 lives for the year.
    The ringing will be heard at 11:59 a.m. throughout the island, Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley announced yesterday as the country’s leadership asked Barbadians, rocked by the deaths, to petition their supreme being. Since the pandemic first hit Barbados in March 2020, 18 people, mainly the elderly, have died.
    Mottley said the one-minute tolling of the bells will mark the start of five minutes of prayer nationally, which is part of the continuing effort by Government to bring Barbadians together in the fight against COVID-19.
    The stations of the state-owned Caribbean Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) as well as participating privately-owned broadcasters, will join the effort to signal to Barbadians that the exercise is about to start. During the prayer time the stations of CBC will adjust their programming to reflect the solemnity of the five minutes. It is also anticipated that churches that are conducting online services will engage in five minutes of prayer, starting at noon.
    Pause, pray and reflect
    The request was first made on February 2, when Mottley, in a national address, asked the country to pause, pray and reflect on what must be done to save the country.
    She stated then: “I believe that . . . whether you are Christian or whether you belong to another religion, we are a country that literally believes in a higher force. And I hope that we can collectively, as a nation, pause on Sunday at midday for five minutes for us to pray, for us to meditate, for us to reflect, to do whatever you do best.
    “And I’m not talking just to the people who are accustomed to going to church. I’m talking about all of us, because youngsters will tell you about the higher force and tell you about Jah and all of those things, but I want us to do that on Sunday, while recognising that for the full two weeks (February 3 to 17, we should) reflect, relax, renew.”
    Prior to her appeal, Dr Corey Forde, infectious disease specialist and head of isolation facilities, had also asked Barbadians to pray when he reported on the number of people in isolation and those in critical condition.

    The bible states Placed before all is death and life

    Mia mission to chase the Almighty dollar has spawned a fate for the citizens called death which our leader needs to be accountable
    Praying for COVID to remove its deadly power from the people would not change the power of COVID over the country a power which was unleashed because of govt policies
    However praying that God would open the eyes of our leaders and removed the stubbornness from their hearts would cause God to listen and hear the people cry

    Religion is the opiate of the masses but will be replaced in the Aquarian Age by people who think for themselves.

    Two great spiritual events: the return of Christ in the ethereal world (and not in a physical body), because people must develop their faculties until they can reach the ethereal world; and the incarnation of “destructive spirit” that will try to block the evolution of humanity has begun, but george is too deaf to hear to dumb to recognise and too blind to see.

    Even as the mother’s milk immunizes her baby from many illnesses and nourishes her baby’s growth, so too God’s Word protects Christians from the many spiritual “diseases” which abound and nourishes them to grow in the Lord.

    So what then would you do if were asked to adhere the following command issued by your Jew-invented god who, in contradicting himself, instructed humans NOT to Kill per his ‘Word’ as ‘written’ in the plagiarized “Ten Commandments”.

    God commanding Moses to kill:
    “They fought against Midian, as the LORD commanded Moses, and killed every man……..Now kill all the boys [innocent kids]. And kill every woman who has slept with a man, but save for yourselves every girl who has never slept with a man. − (Numbers 31:7,17-18)”

    Kill everything that “breathes” from humans and animals! − Deuteronomy 20:16

    Would you wage war against your island neighbours, slaughter the men and young boys, murder the women who had slept with men and keep the young virgins for you and your fellow soldiers-in-Christ rapists?

    Now that should shut you up for the balance of this sacred SUN day!

    YOU HAVE A VERY WARPED MIS-UNDERSTANDING OF BOTH THE PASSAGES IN THE BOOK OF EXODUS, AND OF THE GOD OF THE BIBLE

    IN THE OLIVET DISCOURSE IN MATHEW 24:7 THE LORD JESUS CHRIST PREDICTED THAT ONE OF THE BIRTHPANG SIGNS THAT WOULD PRECEDE HIS EPIPHANEA OR THE SECOND COMING PROPER IS “PESTILENCES”. NOTE THAT WORD IS PLURAL.

    COVID 19 IS ONE OF SUCH PESTILENCES.

    FURTHERMORE, MORE PESTILENCES ARE YET TO COME PRIOR TO THE LORD’S SECOND COMING AS CLEARLY PREDICTED IN REVELATION 6

  • RE ETYMOLOGY OF “SINCERE”
    I suppose we all know the meaning of our English word “sincere”.
    Here is the origin of that word.
    There was a time when potters with defected pottery would apply wax to their pottery before offering it for sale.
    Consequently, potters who offered perfect pottery advertised their ware as “sine cere or sin cere “, i.e without wax.
    Our English word “sincere” is thus a translitteration of the Latin “sine cere or sin cere “.

    Actually it is sine cera.. without wax. Used by those using marble for statues etc.

    Those are all Pagan-inspired languages.

    And what is its equivalent in Sanskrit or Hindi or Mandarin or Cantonese?

    If your Jew -created god called Yahweh is the same god of the Indians and Chinese why didn’t he issue his omnipresent unchangeable ‘Word’ like the 10 Commandments in those languages so the majority of the people on the planet can easily understand?

    Or was his ‘Word’ lost in translation when the mythical tower of Babel fell into the Euphrates river leading to a situation where the immutable Word of Yahweh is now subject to all sorts of interpretations by any ‘biased or racist scholar’ with access to a feather in an ink jar and papyrus sheets (now called a computer)?

    You are so ignorant of the real meaning of the plagiarized Judeo-Christian ‘commercial’ book of lies and mythology than you can ever imagine.

    Maybe you ought to spend a sabbatical at the Vatican Observatory situated in the Castel Gandolfo near Rome and -while relaxing with Pope- peep through its massive telescope for your own (even if late) enlightenment.

    Galileo, Da Vinci and other members of the Illuminati would be very proud of your rudimentary progress.

    Even the “devout” Catholic Bernini would not recognize your transformation from the dungeon of darkness into the Light of wisdom.
