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.
It is well,
With my soul,
It is well,
It is well,
With my soul.
A pleasant and wonderful morning to my family in Christ, O for a closer walk with God, a calm and heavenly frame, a light to shine upon the road, that leads us to the Lamb. Brothers and sisters behold how good and pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity. Giving Almighty God thanks and praises for spared life and tender mercies, for this cause we honour, glorify, uplift and bless His Holy name this morning, His name is worthy to be praised, His name is worthy to be held high in council, His name is above all names. Praise the Lord! Beloved what a mighty and awesome God we serve, what He has done for others; I know with faith believing this morning He can do for us also. Hallelujah! Thank you Jesus!
To my elders — the Patriarch, my Archbishop, Queen Abbess, all ministers, members, friends and as far as His word can be administered, I greet you in Jesus Almighty name, with love and the peace. Now I have to be mindful of using the word peace, because many a time we say peace with our lips but in our hearts we mean war. However I write to us this morning, with the Peace that passeth all understanding. Amen! Beloved I’m speaking of no other than the King of peace, who make wars throughout the world to cease, the wrath of sinful men restrain, give peace O God, give peace again. Brothers and sisters, how many of us seek this Prince of Peace and uphold His commandments? Christians friends today I urge us to flee from the wrath to come, let us invest in The Prince of Peace, because on Christ the solid rock we stand, all other ground is sinking sand. Let us be careful for nothing, but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving, let our requests be made known to God, and the Prince of peace will dwell with us. Amen!
Fellow travelers to eternity we were warned in John 16 verse 33, that in the world we will encounter tribulations, but if we live a Christ like life we will have peace, for Jesus the Christ said, “I have overcome the world, so be of good cheer”. Also Paul’s message to the people of Rome in chapter 12, not to be conformed to this world, but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God. Beloved if we live a peaceful life, our minds will be focused on the things of Christ and we’ll be in one accord with The Holy Spirit, and let us not think we’re better than our brother or sister, but let us think soberly and be of the same mind one towards another. Brother Paul went on to say, recompense to no man evil for evil, provide things honest in the sight of all men and if it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men. Saints of God I beseech us today, to read God’s word so that we be edify and that we learn how a child of God should carry about oneself while making preparations for the coming of our Lord and Saviour. Hallelujah!
Brothers and sisters, as I close this short message on living a peaceful, Christ like life, I pray that we gather something or the message intrigue us to continue reading God’s word for a better understanding of The Prince of Peace. For many a time we hurt our fellow brothers and sisters with just words and the very Prince of Peace said “vengeance is mine, I will repay”. Praise the Lord! Heavenly Father, I pray that You teach us to be affectionate one to another with brotherly love, grant us the privilege to read and understand Your Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth (BIBLE). Lord I pray for our elders in This Mystical Order, please give them the wisdom of Your grace and peace, so they can impart it unto us. Master, remember our families and friends who have not yet accepted You as their personal Saviour, have mercy on them and bring them to Your fold. King of Zion, I pray for all countries of this world and their governments, extend Your peace towards all mankind, let us know You are God and God alone. Jehovah Jireh, I pray that You provide for us and give us Your peace in Jesus Almighty name. Amen! Amen! Amen!
God loves you so do I, may the peace of God abide with us 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.
