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.
