Lord, who shall abide in Thy tabernacle? Who shall dwell in Thy holy hill? He that walketh uprightly and worketh righteousness, and speaketh the truth in his heart. Amen!
Greetings and blessings to all my brothers and sisters in the Lord, whether Jew or Gentile, we’re all God’s children. Amen! Beloved as we lift up God’s holy name today let us remember our brothers and sisters in the middle East, Africa and around the world — who have to flee from their homes due to civil unrest in their countries. O God of love, O King of Peace, make wars to throughout the world to cease, the wrath of sinful man restrain, give peace, O God, give peace again. Thank you Jesus! Hallelujah!
To my elders, hierarchy officers, members, friends and families of The Mystical Order of Spiritual Baptist Inc 2012, I greet you in the precious name of Jesus. Beloved, back in our fore parents time, Almighty God commanded Joshua [after Moses death], to go and conqueror the land He [Almighty God] had promised Moses. Almighty God told Joshua to be strong and very courageous, turn not to the left nor to the right. Again, He [Almighty God] told Joshua, be strong and of good courage, be not afraid, neither be thou dismayed, for the Lord thy God is with thee whithersoever thou goest. (Joshua chapter 1 verses 1 to 9).
So brethren as we have read, Almighty God gave a direct command to Joshua, but as history would reveal, we [mankind] have been fighting and not too far from eliminating ourselves, but from whose command? Personally, I try to stay away from religious and political conversations (debates). However, there are countries supplying arms, technology, and sometimes man power to fight other countries. Some of these very countries — who are supplying war like materials are speaking and portraying world peace. As a person trying to obey the Lord’s Commandments, I’m confused. According to James 3 verse 11, “doth a fountain send forth at the same place sweet water and bitter”. Lord have mercy!
Family in Christ, now is the accepted time, behold now is the day of Salvation. Now is the time for us (mankind) to get together, put aside our differences, start compromising, forget colour of skin, race and nationality and adhere to the teachings of Jesus — The Saviour of mankind. Fellow travellers to eternity, we have to and must pray. Prayer is the key. Prayer changes things. Prayer gives exercise to faith and love and brings every blessings from above. Satan trembles when he see, the weakest saints upon their knees. To put it in a nut shell, prayer is the way we communicate with our Creator. Some do it out loud, some meditate within their hearts and minds, and some chant Psalms or perform invocations with hymns. Amen! Thank you Jesus!
As I close this portion brethren, let us continue in constant prayer, because refraining from prayer is to cease from fighting, and if we cease to fight, the radiant morn hath passed away and spent too soon her golden store; the shadows of our departing day, creep on once more. Amen! Heavenly Father we thank You for another blessing. Master, we thank You for sending Your only begotten Son — who gave us hope and courage with Your grace, so we can pray in faith for deliverance, blessings and all good things from above. Lord God, we lift up our Mystical elders in prayers, please cover them with Your blood. Father of all, help us to pray in season and out of season, insomuch that we stay rooted and grounded in Jesus Almighty name. Amen! Thank you Jesus!
God’s blessing until we meet again.
Your humble servant,
His Eminence, Eric Alleyne. LOM. OHPA. OSM.
Cardinal of The Mystical Order.
Commanding Officer of The Mystical Court.
