THE CARDINAL SPEAKS
His Eminence Sir Eric Alleyne
Something in my heart
Like a stream running down,
Makes me feel so happy
As happy as can be
When I think of Jesus
And what He has done for me
There something in my heart
Like a stream running down.
A pleasant and wonderful morning to all my brothers and sisters in the Lord. And are we yet alive and see each others face, glory and praise to Jesus give, for His redeeming grace. Spirit Divine, attend to our prayers this morning and make our hearts thy home. Almighty God, as we approach our souls to thy mercy seat, Lord Jesus we plead that You hear and answer our prayers, Master we humbly fall before Your feet, because we know none shall perish there. Almighty God, giving You thanks and praises for spared life and tender mercies, Jehovah we honour, glorify, uplift and bless Your Holy name as we worship You this morning, Lord we’re very grateful for all You have done for us and we pray that You guard, guide and keep us as we continue to seek Your face in Jesus Almighty name, Amen.
Peace and blessings to The Presiding Prelate, my Archbishop, Queen Abbess, all ministers, members, friends and all God fearing people, I greet you in the wonderful name of Jesus. Believers, in the gospel of John chapter 4, I read the woman of Samaria left her water pot and ran to her village and told the people; “come, see a man, which told me all things that ever I did, is this not the Christ”? Christian family, my intentions today is not on the woman of Samaria — who marvelled at the things that was told to her, but I want to highlight the gift of eternal life which was offered unto her, Amen! Prior the woman running back to the city, Jesus the Christ had arrive at Jacob’s well and this woman of Samaria had come to the well to draw water. Jesus then said unto her “give me to drink”, the woman not knowing who was the person asking for a drink of water, questioned His intentions by stating that the Jews have no dealings with the Samaritans. Jesus answered and said unto her, “if thou knewest the gift of God, and who it is that saith to thee, give me to drink; thou wouldest have asked of Him, and He would have given thee living water”. Praise the Lord! Brethren, whoever drink of the water from the well, will always be thirsty and have to return to fetch more, but if one drink of The Living Water — Jesus, The Holy Spirit will dwell within you and shall be in you a well of water springing up into everlasting life. Hallelujah!
Brothers and sisters, today I urge you (myself included) let us partake of this Living Water, by drinking This living Water, a thousand will fall at thy side, and ten thousand at thy right hand, but none shall come nigh thee. In John 7, verses 37 and 38 Jesus said, “if any man thirst, let him come unto me and drink. He that believeth on me as the scripture hath said, out of his belly shall flow rivers of living waters”. In Isaiah 44 verse 3 we observed where The Lord God reassured Jacob, that He will pour water upon him that is thirsty, and floods upon the dry ground, The Lord God guaranteed Jacob that He will pour His spirit upon thy seed and His blessings upon thine offspring. So beloved, just as Almighty God promised blessings for Jacob’s seed and offspring, you and I will received all these blessings because we come from the house of Jacob, however, we must drink of The Living Water. Again in Revelation 22 verse 17, The Living Water is offered freely, here the spirit and the bride say, come. Let him that heareth say, come. Let him that is athirst come, and whosoever will, come and drink of The Living Water.
In closing Christian friends, let us seek comfort with two verses from Revelation 7, once we consume The Living Water, we shall hunger no more, neither thirst any more, neither shall the sun light on us nor any heat. For The Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed us, and shall lead us unto living fountains of water; and God shall wipe away all tears from our eyes. Hallelujah! Praise the Lord! Almighty God we thank you for The Living Water, as we drink daily we pray that You supply our basic needs, remember our families and friends around the world, have mercy on our elders in This Mystical Order, help us to continue spreading Your word for time is nigh. King of Zion, we pay homage to our Ancestors, the Orishas and all Heavenly Entities who function and operate through the name of Jesus. O Creator of this universe, all these and more blessings we ask for in Jesus Almighty name. Amen! Amen! Amen!
Your humble servant,
His Eminence, Eric Alleyne. LOM OHPA OSM.
