THE WOUNDED CAPTAIN

Posted by

HH, Sir Godfrey Gregg D.Div

“Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” (Matthew 28:20).

You have to be in the Spiritual Baptist Faith to understand the operations. Do not rush to a conclusion, but walk slowly and look beyond what you can see to know what is taking place. Be aware that the natural man will not understand the spiritual because they are spiritually discerned.

This living Christ is not the person that was, but the person that still is, your living Lord. At Paget Farm in Bequia, St. Vincent and the Grenadines, I looked on the field in church wherein the olden day’s ships were engaged in the adoption spirit. In the crisis of the battle, the captain fell wounded. His crew were about to shrink away from the field when they saw their leader’s form go down; their strong hands held the captain with trembling grip, and they faltered for a moment. Then the old captain rallied strength enough to rise on his elbow and cry: “I am not dead, my children, I am only watching you–to see my clansmen do their duty.” And so from the other side of Calvary, He is speaking; we cannot see Him, but He says, “Lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the world”; and He puts it, “I am”–an uninterrupted and continuous presence. Not “I will be,” but the unbroken presence still is with us forevermore.
