Thy Holy Writ

greg-olson_love-evident

2nd Thessalonians chapter 2, verses 7 & 8 (NKJV)

For the mystery of lawlessness is already at work; only He who now restrains will do so until He is taken out of the way.
And then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will consume with the breath of His mouth and destroy with the brightness of His coming.

Isn’t God wonderful ? Isn’t He Great ? He is righteous and brings justice upon the evil that resides in mans heart.

We as a world have seen Gods power to expose evil and bring it to the light and inflict justice, all over the air waves, from sea to shinning sea, and that the jubilation of the masses are personified by an ecstatic outburst of joy and praise in His Holy Name.
There is a satisfaction and renewed hope for mankind, when we can witness an injustice be corrected before are very eyes.

Those that have evil in their hearts should take note that He is the living God and this is one reason why we worship and praise His mighty name. So let the church bells ring out and let the voices of those chosen by Christ sing out for their love and faith have touch the heart of God and he has answered with a deafening roar of thunder of His will on behalf of those who truly love and worship Him.

Thank you Lord for rescuing, the four young ladies (Amanda Berry, and her daughter along with Gina DeJesus and Michele Knight) and for also exposing the evil heart of mankind and bringing it to your light.

May your judgement be swift and may this be a reminder to those that have evil in their hearts that their deeds will not and have not gone unnoticed by you, and that you will judge them and their deeds more harshly than mankind could ever imagine.

Truly we love and serve a mighty God, the God of all mankind. And He waits for you and is calling you out of darkness and into his loving arms of grace.

Have a blessed day people and continue to rejoice and sing your praise and shout it from the hose tops and in the streets, He lives and He answers the prayers of those who seek after Him and follow His commandments to the end.

Sincerely in Gods love and loving embrace,

“Thy Holy Writ”

fishers_of_men_zoom_7771

Colossians chapter 3, verses 1 – 7 (NKJV)

1) If then you were raised with Christ, seek those things which are above, where Christ is, sitting at the right hand of God.
2) Set your mind on things above, not on things on the earth.
3) For you died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God.
4) When Christ who is our life appears, then you also will appear with Him in glory.
5) Therefore put to death your members which are on the earth: fornication, uncleanness, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry.
6) Because of these things the wrath of God is coming upon the sons of disobedience, 7) in which you yourselves once walked when you lived in them.

Folks, one very important principle I teach to my congregation is a philosophy of relationships. The premise of the discussion is to make people aware of others around them, which have a considerable amount of influence over them. I’m not talking about those that have authority over us but rather those that we have fellowship with, those that one chooses to “hang out with”.

The quote I am speaking of, I no not where it comes from and honestly, I don’t care who first said it. What I do care about is the truth within it’s meaning. And that is; “YOU ARE, WHO YOU ASSOCIATE WITH”. Maybe you have heard it before and then again maybe this is the first time you’ve heard it. No matter what, it is a true saying. It holds up in most ever test one can put it to.

So if you are looking to seek God and His ways, those things that are Godly, then start with this simple little philosophy and incorporate it into every facet of your life and see the difference that will take shape in your life. Besides, it is amazing what happens when one steps outside ones comfort zone, yet many times it is truly necessary in order to have true change in ones life to do so.

There are many biblical references one can make in reference to this little quote and over time I will bring them forth as well and along the way Gods wisdom will be reveled, like the Potter He is. Making you into an image that is Holy and Blessed in His righteousness and truth.

Until next time, may the blessings of God be upon you and guide you along your way.

Sincerely, Bishop 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

Time for a change. As heard from those in the know.

It is time for a change. A change for Life. A change for Justice. A change for those that can NOT speak for themselves. A change to do that which, we know is right in the sight of God and mankind. A change that is fair, balanced but for the right reasons NOT for self centered reasons. It is time for a change and the time is now.

Mankind makes bad decisions everyday without having a legal right to do so. Why than just give them a free pass to make one whenever they feel like it? That’s what we will be doing if we don’t take the time to stand up for those that can’t make a real choice if their lives depended on it. Those people that would rather listen to a friend, or worse yet not try to see what options are available to them, other than taking an innocent life.

No change today, no change tomorrow, no change next week, no change next month. No change in this election, will mean millions of innocent lives will have no choice of their own. No choice to speak for themselves. There is no time like the present and mostly, there is no time to waist.

So I ask you, how much time do you need to do what is right for future generations of your own bloodline. Yes, your human immortality will be at jeopardy. Is that your will? Is that what you want for your children and grandchildren? Your great grandchildren? Even your great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great, great grandchildren? I used 14 great grand children because that is the number in the genealogy of life from the beginning to the birth of Jesus Christ himself.

Just think what the world would be like, if someone in His genealogy had had an abortion anywhere along the line. Isn’t it time to be a real man, a real woman that has love for life and not free will to take life. Yes there is a choice and Jesus is waiting to see what choice you will make.

Would you condone murder by looking the other way? What if it was a member of your family that was murdered and a friend saw the whole thing happen and decided NOT to get involved. How would that make you feel. We see it most everyday play out in other peoples lives but it yet has hit close to home for many of us. Many of us to even care, that is.

Should that stop you from feeling sorrow for those that have lost their lives? We’ll whats the difference than of having the right to have an abortion, just because you don’t want the child? The bible states – Thou shall not kill but what is abortion then if not killing?

The answers are in you, and the question is, isn’t it time for you to do something about it. It’s not just a Christian issue, it is an issue about where humanity with be 25 or 50 years from now. That is if you don’t take the time to do what you know is right. Just remember what might be right for one person, may not be right for all persons. Weather it is their right or not…
