TIME TO UNITE

 

Eric2Be merciful unto me, O God, be merciful unto me, for my soul trusteth in Thee; yea, in the shadow of Thy wings will I make my refuge, until these calamities be overpast. A blessed day to my brothers and sisters in the Lord, thanking Almighty God for sustaining us to see another day whereby we can glorify His holy name. Father as we lift You up in our prayers today, we ask for your continued guidance, blessings and protection for our families, friends and our brothers and sisters around the world, especially where there are uprisings in their countries, please hide us in Your bosom where sin and satan cannot find us, in Jesus Almighty name. Amen!

 

To our Patriarch and Bishop of Starlight of Israel Healing Temple, my Archbishop, Crowned Queen Abbess, all ministers, members, friends and families of The Mystical Order of Spiritual Baptist Inc 2012, I greet you in the precious name of Jesus. Family in Christ, a question was asked in Psalm 15; “Lord, who shall abide in Thy tabernacle, who shall dwell in Thy holy hill”? Brothers and sisters, are we walking uprightly, working righteousness and speaking the truth in our hearts? Or are we creating divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine, which we have learned? Beloved, in verse 3 of Psalm 15, we read, he that backbiteth not with his tongue, nor doeth evil to his neighbour, nor taketh up a reproach against his neighbour, in my opinion, these are some of the qualities of a true servant of God. However, there are lots of discord, falling outs, and confusion amongst God’s people, now is not the time to be separating or causing separation in God’s Kingdom. It is high time the we (children of God — whether of colour, creed, race or religon) unite. In Isaiah 61 verse 1, we are supposed to be preaching good tidings to the meek, binding the broken-hearted, proclaiming liberty to the captives and opening the prison to them that are bound. Instead we’re doing the opposite, trying to tear down banners, which have been established and flying high in God’s Kingdom. Lord have mercy!

 

I’ve noticed lots of changes in Church and their administrations nowadays,  changes are good yes, but give me the old time religion. For when I was growing up {spiritual upbringing} we did things in stages, step after step and precept after precept, with very strict supervision from our elders. Man is doing his own thing now and making it look like it is God’s way, but Proverbs 14 verse 12 states, “there is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death”. Let us take heed of the words in St Matthew 5 verse 5, blessed are the meek; for they shall inherit the earth. When we do something or an achievement is accomplished, all glorification goes to Almighty God, not the individual, for it’s the spirit of God created that manifestation.  Amen!

 

Unity is strength, we have to stand together, let us put aside our man made titles and apparel and follow God’s Commandments and Christ teachings. Beloved, have we ever wonder how good and how pleasant it will be for us to dwell together in unity. Not I doing my own thing nor you doing your thing, or I pulling this way and you pulling the other way, we would not accomplish anything unless we unite and come to a common understanding. Hallelujah! If every God fearing person subject themselves to The Higher Power, (Almighty God) and try for the unification of Israel (Baptist Faith), it would be a great achievement. Saints of God, unity is written and preached about all over the Bible, so why can we mortals accept Christ’s teachings that we must unite. Amen!

 

As I close this short passage on how we must unite, let us do some soul searching or let us try to recall history and observe if any one person did or accomplished anything by them self. { Jesus the Christ is the only one, but He commissioned His disciples to go into the world and preach the everlasting gospel, in His name}. Ephesians 4 verses 1 to 3 states, I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called. With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love. Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace. Amen! Heavenly Father, we thank You for another blessing today, Master we thank You for our Great Commander — who once put a little child in the midst and show us how to live and conduct ourselves. King of Zion, we thank You for our elders of The Mystical Order, please give them the courage and endurance to unify Israel. Lord, teach us to stand with them and support them, because together we shall stand, but divided we’ll fall. O God of love, O King of peace, look at all the boundaries, limitations, margins and frontiers, we’re setting up and creating divisions. Papa, remove them in Jesus Almighty name, so that we could learn to unite, love one another and co-exist until that great day of Salvation. All these and more blessings we ask for in Jesus Almighty name. Amen!

UNITY if Israel ever needed you, is now.

 

Your humble servant,

His Eminence, Eric Alleyne. LOM. OHPA. OSM.

Cardinal of The Mystical Order.

Commanding Officer of The Mystical Court.

 

TIME TO UNITE.

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!
