“WELCOME to day two of the new life of BFM.”

Those were the words a senior pastor of Bahamas Faith Ministries (BFM) told congregants gathered for an emergency prayer meeting at BFM last night, a day after Dr Myles Munroe, his wife and seven others died in a plane crash.

“Pastor Myles made preparation for this time and let me assure you that God wasn’t surprised,” he said, adding: “The Lord sees everything, knows everything and returns everything over to him.”

Acknowledging the “sacrifice of praise” many in attendance had to offer, the ministry’s praise and worship leader later added: “If Pastor Myles had a word for you, he would say give your best praise.”

With people still shocked by the news of the fatalities in Grand Bahama, Deputy Prime Minister Philip “Brave” Davis addressed the congregation on behalf of the government.

“The Bahamas is sad on the passing (of those who died in the crash) and truly no assembly of words is sufficient at this time,” he said.

“Tragedy often shakes the root but we should not allow it to uproot the foundation. In Lamb’s Book of Life there’s a time for all of us to pass from this world to a place fit for us. Nothing can delay us from that root, no skill, no artistry, no knowledge, no competence; nothing. No one knows the time, nor the place nor how.

“Our faith, though, is steadied by our grasp and adherence to the admonition that we are not to lean on our own understanding. As a member of the Christian community and a Bahamian patriot, I join the Bahamas and the rest of the world in saluting the lives of Pastor Dr Myles Munroe and his wife, Ruth Munroe, senior pastor Dr Richard Pinder, youth pastor Lavard Manifest Parks, his wife Radel Parks, his son Johanan and also their unborn child, the pilot captain Stanley Thurston, and I also extend condolences to the family of the unidentified woman from Africa that travelled with them.”

Mr Davis told congregants that the deceased triumphed in life.  

“We realise that these men and women glorified God,” he said. “Pastor Myles, along with his wife, sought to develop people as leaders. Literally millions of lives around the world were inspired by their messages to discover their personal purpose, to develop their true potential and to manifest their unique leadership abilities. That is the triumph.

“It rests in that contagious message of inspiration, motivation and truth.  And that message did not die last night. It is as alive today as the souls that have past to eternity.”

God kill myles an the rest of the crew for their wickedness because god is against christian's an there for the most high visited them an gave judgment unto him an his followers Jeremiah 23 (KJV)

23 (Woe DESTRUCTION)be unto the pastors that destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! saith the Lord.

2 Therefore thus saith the Lord God of Israel against the pastors that feed my people; Ye have scattered my flock, and driven them away, and have not visited them: behold, I will visit upon you the evil of your doings, saith the Lord.

AND THATS NOT IT ALL YOU CHRISTIAN'S MUSLIM. ALL YALL WHAT IS ANY TYPE OF RELIGION YOU ARE OFF THE DEVIL BECAUSE THE GOD OF ISRAEL GAVE HIS PEOPLE LAWS WHAT THE CHRISTIAN CHURCH SAY IS DONE AWAY WITH WHICH IS A LIE THE CHRISTIAN CHURCH WAS BUILT FOR LIE Deuteronomy 4:5-8King James Version (KJV)

5 Behold, I have taught you statutes and judgments, even as the Lord my God commanded me, that ye should do so in the land whither ye go to possess it.

6 Keep therefore and do them; for this is your wisdom and your understanding in the sight of the nations, which shall hear all these statutes, and say, Surely this great nation is a wise and understanding people.

7 For what nation is there so great, who hath God so nigh unto them, as the Lord our God is in all things that we call upon him for?

8 And what nation is there so great, that hath statutes and judgments so righteous as all this law, which I set before you this day?

King James Vers

GOD IS AGAINST ALL THESE LYIN DOGS Lying Prophets 9 Concerning the prophets:

My heart is broken within me; all my bones tremble. I am like a drunken man, like a strong man overcome by wine, because of the Lord and his holy words. 10 The land is full of adulterers; because of the curse[b] the land lies parched and the pastures in the wilderness are withered. The prophets follow an evil course and use their power unjustly. 11 “Both prophet and priest are godless; even in my temple I find their wickedness,” declares the Lord. 12 “Therefore their path will become slippery; they will be banished to darkness and there they will fall. I will bring disaster on them in the year they are punished,” declares the Lord. 13 “Among the prophets of Samaria I saw this repulsive thing: They prophesied by Baal and led my people Israel astray. 14 And among the prophets of Jerusalem I have seen something horrible: They commit adultery and live a lie. They strengthen the hands of evildoers, so that not one of them turns from their wickedness. They are all like Sodom to me; the people of Jerusalem are like Gomorrah.” 15 Therefore this is what the Lord Almighty says concerning the prophets:

“I will make them eat bitter food and drink poisoned water, because from the prophets of Jerusalem ungodliness has spread throughout the land.”

IF PEOPLE LIKE HIM WAS PROMOTING TO KEEP THE LAWS OF OUR TRUE GOD WHAT OUR FOREFATHER TURN THEIR BACKS ON HE WOULD BE ALIVE AN GOD WOULD NOT HAVE TAKEN HIM BUT BECAUSE OF THE EVIL OF HIS DOINGS GOD DELIVERED HIM UNTO DEATH JEREMIAH 23-9 Lying Prophets 9 Concerning the prophets:

My heart is broken within me; all my bones tremble. I am like a drunken man, like a strong man overcome by wine, because of the Lord and his holy words. 10 The land is full of adulterers; because of the curse[b] the land lies parched and the pastures in the wilderness are withered. The prophets follow an evil course and use their power unjustly. 11 “Both prophet and priest are godless; even in my temple I find their wickedness,” declares the Lord. 12 “Therefore their path will become slippery; they will be banished to darkness and there they will fall. I will bring disaster on them in the year they are punished,” declares the Lord.

GOD DESTROYED THEM USING HIS STORM This is what the Lord Almighty says:

“Do not listen to what the prophets are prophesying to you; they fill you with false hopes. They speak visions from their own minds, not from the mouth of the Lord. 17 They keep saying to those who despise me, ‘The Lord says: You will have peace.’ And to all who follow the stubbornness of their hearts they say, ‘No harm will come to you.’ 18 But which of them has stood in the council of the Lord to see or to hear his word? Who has listened and heard his word? (((>>>>19 See, the storm of the Lord will burst out in wrath, a whirlwind swirling down on the heads of the wicked.<<<))))) 20 The anger of the Lord will not turn back until he fully accomplishes the purposes of his heart. In days to come you will understand it clearly. 21 I did not send these prophets, yet they have run with their message; I did not speak to them, yet they have prophesied. 22 But if they had stood in my council, they would have proclaimed my words to my people and would have turned them from their evil ways and from their evil deeds.
