THE CARDINAL SPEAKS
His Eminence Sir Eric Alleyne
Lord, who shall abide in thy tabernacle? Who shall dwell in thy Holy hill? The answer was, and still is, he that walketh uprightly and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart. Praise the Lord! A pleasant and wonderful morning to the Creator of all living things, that which was, which is and will ever be. Hallelujah! According to Psalm 15, brother David was speaking about one who walks the walk, and talks the talk. One; who has surrendered all to Jesus and do not care what mankind may say or do to the physical body, because “one” knows a higher force is in charge. Amen!
To our Patriarch, my Archbishop, Queen Abbess, all ministers, affiliated churches, members, friends, well wishers and where ever the voice can be heard, I greet you in the mighty name of Jesus. Amen! Beloved, when David got the message that his son will not survive, because of his adulterous ways and had caused the death of Uriah, and had taken Uriah’s wife to be his wife, David went down in fasting and praying. Brethren, David reasoned with himself that he had committed two serious infractions against Almighty God, but David was a man beloved by God. Almighty God loves the sinner but He hates the sin. Brothers and sisters, I’m not high lighting this so we can continue in sin that grace may abound, God forbid. Amen! We have to trust Almighty God, but be true to ourselves, remember the spirit of God dwelleth in us, so we may try to fool or lie to one another, however, we are only deceiving ourselves. Amen! God is too wise to make a mistake, whatever happens or happened, is for a reason and purpose, and it’s for us to wake up. It’s a time where one has to put water in one’s wine, again I have to refer to the book of Ecclesiastes; to every thing there is a season and a time to every purpose under the Heaven. Children of Jericho, it is high time we let our light so shine and stop being entangled with yokes of bondage. Amen!
Fellow travellers to eternity, let us put all our faith and trust in Almighty god. Mankind eat and drink with you and crucify you in a heart beat, so let’s look to Jesus and live. Saints of God, I must caution us (myself included), David did not mourn nor lament over the death of his son. He arosed, washed and annointed himself, and went into the temple and worshipped Almighty God. So we too have to take an example from David, the show must go on, but let us not be presumptuous sinners. Amen! Brothers and sisters it’s nice to have a close friend, a confidant, someone — who drinks bush tea with you, when your stomach hurts, but when that confidant turns on you, “the radiant morn hath passed away, and spent too soon her golden store; the shadows of departing day, creep on once more”. Brethren, let us seek Him, while He may be found; let’s call Him, while He is near.
In closing, I pray that we trust God and be true to ourselves, for many a time we’re in a situation (writers opinion) we have contributed 90%, to it. Sometimes we ask God, why He allow this to happen, God is not a God of confusion, we were taught to seek Him first, but most of us choose to call on Him only when we’re in trouble. Amen! Heavenly Father, today we thank You for spared life and tender mercies, we thank You for the good times, the bad times and the times we have no control over. Jehovah we thank You that although we sin and fall short every day, you still send us The Comforter. Lord God, remember our elders in The Mystical Order, please guard, guide and protect them, teach us to be loyal, sincere and true to ourselves, before we can be true to you King Jesus. Master, this world at large, please have mercy. Not forgetting the less fortunate ones, even the little one who lost their parents due to man made wars and natural disasters, please provide for them O Jehovah Jireh. King of Zion, all these and more blessings we ask for in Jesus Almighty name. Amen! Amen! Amen!
Trust and obey, there’s no other way, to be happy in Jesus, but to trust and obey.
Your humble servant,
His Eminence, Eric Alleyne. LOM. OHPA. OSM.
Cardinal of The Mystical Order.
Commanding Officer of The Mystical Court.
