THE CARDINAL SPEAKS:
His Eminence Sir Eric Alleyne
Behold how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity. To The Author and Finisher of our faith, we give thanks and praises this morning for spared life and tender mercies. We honour, glorify, bless and worship Your matchless name. We pray for Your guidance throughout this day and forever more. A pleasant and wonderful morning to our Patriarch, my Archbishop, all ministers, friends , families and well wishers of The Mystical Order of Spiritual Baptist Inc 2012, I greet you in the awsome name of Jesus. Saints of God today I want to briefly touch on a tideous topic — unity. Brothers and sisters we are from different homes (spiritual churches), some if not all, operate some what differently, and I strongly believe that this gathering (Mystical Order) was ordained by Almighty God for a reason and a purpose. Amen! Could one imagine, with all these different administrations combined (united) the Mystical Order would move mountains in the name of Jesus, but we must be in one accord.
Beloved as I’ve mentioned in one of my previous messages, every member has their part to play and we all depend on each other as we have read in 1 Corinthians chapter 12 verses 11 to 22
. The Mystical Order is like unto a tree with different limbs, each limb has it’s part to play, but every limb must function in it’s capacity and all the limbs must unite in order that the tree (Mystical Order) will perform, bear fruit, attract birds, (whether to pollinate the flowers or suck of the sweet nectar) and even provide shade for a weary traveller. Hallelujah! Praise the Lord! So beloved from this portion we can boldly proclaim that unity is strength, and with faith and God’s grace this very tree (Mystical Order), will be planted by the rivers of waters, that bringeth forth its fruit in due season, it’s leaves (members) also shall not wither, and whatsoever we (members) do shall prosper in Jesus Almighty name. Praise the Lord! Thank you Jesus!
Brothers and sisters, in Ephesians 4
verse 6, we understand that there is, “one God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in us all”, so if we really unite in word, thought and deed, it would be like unto the day of Pentecost, where every one will be filled with the Holy spirit. Amen! Praise the Lord!
In closing beloved, I pray that we unite, for that day of Salvation is fast approaching and we don’t want to be running to and fro looking for Jesus at the eleventh hour, because I’ve learnt that too late, too late will be the cry, for Jesus of Nazereth had already pass by. Amen! Almighty God, we thank You for the message on unity today, we pray that it take root in our hearts and we come to consciousness and know that You is God and God alone. Only you in Your Triune form could co-exist by Yourself. Master, we pray for our elders in The Mystical Order, please grant them the strength and endurance to keep us together. Lord remember us in our low estate, some of us are sick, some are sad, some have lost the love we had, please teach us to love our brothers and sisters once more. Jehovah Jireh, please provide for us as we toil to maintain this physical form until that great day, in Jesus Almighty name. Amen!
