” Thy Holy Writ “

Proverbs chapter 3, verses 5 – 8 (NKJV)

5) Trust in the Lord with all your heart,
And lean not on your own understanding;
6) In all your ways acknowledge Him,
And He shall direct your paths.
7) Do not be wise in your own eyes;
Fear the Lord and depart from evil.
8) It will be health to your flesh,
And strength to your bones.

The Holy Bible is not a book of do not’s, but rather it is a book of does.
A book of Godly wisdom, given to those who seek what our Lord whats them to know and understand as well as obey.

Yet many ignore His advice and do not take serious His warnings. His wrath and His judgement will come upon those that refuse His ways. For they will see that His words are truth and His power is swift and just. Woe to those who do not follow after Him for they shall have their reward in hell, and it will be an eternal lie they will suffer as the demons witness and laugh at their agony, forever.

For God is Lord and His son, our Lord and He will come again and bring the sword upon those that have disrespect and hate in their heart. Yes they to shall see His coming and will not be able to hide or bluff their way out of his hand of judgement.

Yet for those who hear His words and follow them, they shall see His compassion and His mercy. For by taking to heart His instructions they shall be given the blessing and promises held within the scriptures, which He himself spoke.

May the Lord our God have empathy on those that turn from the ways of evil and may His grace be their gift. May they who believe, believe with their whole being and all that they have done may their lives be pleasing to Christ the King, so that the pearly gates of Heaven be open to them that trust in Him.

Sincerely your servant in Christ our Lord,
Bishop Andrew R. M. Manley DD., O.S.A., O.S.P.

“Thy Holy Writ”

Psalm, # 133 verse 1 (NKJV)

1) Behold, how good and how pleasant it is
For brethren to dwell together in unity!

————
Unity ? Oh people is it even possible ?
One part of me say yes and the other is not sure.

I say this because we as a nation are not united. In politics nor in faith. In theology and in doctrine neither are we united. Even when it comes to the word of God in the Holy Bible we have two separate versions, meaning the Catholic Bible and the Protestant Bible. And of those, I’ve lost count as to how many different versions and interpretations there are. And lets not forget the Apocrypha’s that have been omitted by both.

So I ask you to think about this verse and pray and meditate with me today, and even all this week, that God our Father will see and bless our meager attempts to come together for the common good. Pray with a true heart of compassion and respect for the concerns of our faith. Ask that, His Son and their combined Holy Spirit come and bless us all and bring us together in unity. Ask that, our unity be re-affirmed in His Son and in their Holy will, when needed most. But mostly that we hold fast the common fabric that holds all 34(+) thousand different Christian beliefs together.
Our faith in Him and His divine will for all peoples.

I believe then and only then we will be truly united in the will of God against evil and corruption that plagues mankind. That we can put aside our differences and in Christian Brotherhood and Sisterhood unite with Him, for the worlds sake.

Have a blessed day and week for that matter, in the love and bond that holds us all together in His sake and cause.

Sincerely yours in service to all mankind and Jesus our salvation,
Bp. Andrew R. M. Manley DD., O.S.A., O.S.P.

Jonah chapter 2, verse 1 & 2 (NKJV)

Then Jonah prayed to the Lord his God from the fish’s belly.
2) And he said:
“I cried out to the Lord because of my affliction,
And He answered me.
“Out of the belly of Sheol I cried,
And You heard my voice.

Folks these two verses say a lot about our relationship with God as His children. As a parent, there comes a time when we have to let our children go and experience life and when they fall or get into trouble we as parents come and rescue them or help them in what ways we see fit to do so.

God is like that with us. He gave free will, to every man, woman and child on this planet, knowing we would stumble, fall get into trouble and cause uncomfortable situations for ourselves. He stands by and allows us to make wrong choices and even bad ones at that. All in hopes that we will cry out to Him for help, no matter what it is we have gotten ourselves into.

The point I am trying to make here is that God is always watching over us, every minute of everything we do here and He does answer our cries for help. But sometimes because we chose a path that is not His way for us, like Jonah, we have a life lesson to learn. Once we learn that lesson He comes and aids us.

Just as we do for our children. We love them and we want the best for them. We don’t want harm to come to them but we can’t always be there to hold their hand and see them through every step they take in life, even if we want to. Yet like God our Father we are there when they need us the most, that is if they ask. And so we answer and render enough aid or help to get them back on solid ground, just like God did for Jonah.

So go ahead and live life, remember to do that which you know is right and proper before the eyes of the Lord and he will be with you always. If you let Him, ready to answer your call for help when you need it the most and you’ve learned what it is He wanted you to experience.

Have a blessed day people and know that God is watching and waiting just for you. Always, even until the end of time itself…
Sincerely yours in Christ Jesus,
Bp. Andrew R. M. Manley DD., O.S.A., O.S.P.

“Thy Holy Writ”

Jeremiah chapter 16, verse 16

16 “Behold, I will send for many fishermen,” says the Lord, “and they shall fish them; and afterward I will send for many hunters, and they shall hunt them from every mountain and every hill, and out of the holes of the rocks.

————-
Warriors, do you consider yourself to be truly and fully “Christian” ? Do you know what is expected of you that call yourself “Christian” ? Are you prepared to do the work of the Lord as it has never been done before ? Being Christian is not just a word, it is a life style. A life style that is good, decent, loving and kind to all in this world, not just your small piece of it. Although we all have to start someplace.

When I have talked to you about things more important to you than God, what is it do you think I am talking about ? Do you think my words to harsh or not harsh enough ? Do you regard my messages as “whatever” ? Do you think for a moment that I do not love and worry about you, your life, your families and the such ?

I guess every preacher in the world asks themselves these questions from time to time. It is our job as directed by God to help you realize the truth of his will for your life and those that you love and care about.

The Prophet Jeremiah is trying to do his best to relay the message of Chapter 16 to those who need to hear it the most. Those that are lost. So to speak. It is a warning to all who do not follow after the way of the Lord with all diligence and respect. The fishermen in this passage are the increased ministers of the word of God and the hunters are those that are truly righteous and they will make known the truth and force evil out of the darkness and into the light for all mankind to see and know.

As a community of the Christian faithful, we need to make known that we are fishers of men and hunters of righteousness and Godliness. We need to stand firm on the word of God, Christ His Son and allow the Holy Spirit to work in our lives. As well as the lives of those around us.

A very dear friend asked me to comment on this verse and at first I was reluctant but when you do as God wants everything falls into place and the message becomes clear. Clear at least to those that want to do His will in their lives. And there are many, many of you out here that do and for this I am pleased and so to is the Father. So please bring your questions concerning the scriptures to me. For I know that you are wanting to know the ways of our governance, our lord Jesus Christ. Keep in mind that sometimes it is best to read an entire chapter or two to understand His meanings and mostly pray. Pray before during and even after and ask the Father what it is He wants you to learn and may even do with the new-found understanding that He has given you. You just might be surprised of how He will use you to do His work, either as a fisher of men or maybe a hunter of the truth for His sake for all mankind.

Pray for those that need prayer like the lost throughout the world in places like North Korea, and the Middle East. I fear it is they that this scripture is in reference to. Them and all mankind that do not accept the Fathers teachings. Just remind folks if need be that Christ was not just a prophet like Jeremiah or any other, he “IS” the Son of MAN and GOD, for all mankind. Not just one group of believers that think they are right and all other people’s are infidels or the such.

Have a blessed day folks and know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.
God bless…

Sincerely your servant in the name of the Christ, Jesus

Bishop Andrew R. M. Manley DD., O.S.A., O.S.P.
