His Eminence Sir Eric Alleyne
When peace like a river attendeth my way, when sorrows like sea billows roll; whatever my lot, thou hast taught me to know, it is well, it is well with my soul. What comforting and assuring words one wants to hear in times like these. To The Alpha and The Omega, the first and the last, we pay our respect by praising and thanking You this morning. We honour, glorify, bless and uplift Your matchless name today. We ask for Your guidance, protection, and blessings throughout this day and forever. To our Patriarch, my Archbishop, all ministers, members, friends and well wishers, I greet you in the mighty name of Jesus. A name that is above all names. Today I’m going to be very brief, because many a time Israel listens but don’t hear, we read and over look the message, nevertheless, I want to tell my brothers and sisters today that all is well. Remember the good Lord promised to supply our needs, but some of us don’t quite grasp the understanding. We think we can sit back and things fall into our laps. The Lord provide ways, means and gives us the knowledge, we then have to use our ability, brains and experience and the pieces of the puzzle will come together.
Brothers and sisters, we ask the Lord to pass us not, O gentle Saviour and hear our humble cry, do we hear the cry of our brothers and sisters? Do we try to comfort them and let them know God is in charge and all will be well. When I think of Job, who, upon hearing the losses he suffered, fell down and worshipped saying, “naked came I out of my mother’s womb, and naked shall I return thither, the Lord gave and the Lord hath taken away; blessed be the name of the Lord”. Even when he was afflicted, he still had faith that Almighty God will deliver him and all will be well. Saints of God, let’s follow the teachings we received from our Sunday school days, which is to love the Lord thy God with all our heart, all our minds and all our souls. In this modern world we’re living in, we are caught up in society, meaning, the business people, the designers, film producers in Hollywood, even the farmers to name a few, set the trend for our every day survival. ( the clothes we wear, the foods we eat, the things we see on tv and in the movies). Even in some organizations, we fail to follow rules, regulations and protocol, again these are due to society and man made laws. What’s important is our personal relationship with God and our character, these should be upheld at all times, and all will be well. Beloved, let us walk worthy of the vocation where-with ye are called. All these earthly titles, treasures and man made things we are cherishing, will not help us enter His Kingdom. Amen!
Family in Christ, I pray that we gather some food for thought and know that all is well. It is between you and your Jesus, no matter what you’re going through or the problems from your co-wokers, your family, your spiritual family or your companion, take it to the Lord in prayer. Heavenly Father we thank you for the message today, we pray that our elders in The Mystical Order know that all is well and that You’re in charge. Lord, have mercy on us as we tarry in Your name.
All these and more blessings we ask for in Jesus Almighty name. Amen!
Just remember, all is well.
