Peter’s Speech

A reading from the Acts of the Apostles 10, 34 – 43:

Then Peter proceeded to speak and said, “In truth, I see that God
shows no partiality. Rather, in every nation whoever fears him and
acts uprightly is acceptable to Him. You know the word that He sent to
the Israelites as He proclaimed peace through Jesus Christ, who is
Lord of all, what has happened all over Judea, beginning in Galilee
after the baptism that John preached, how God anointed Jesus of
Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and power. He went about doing good and
healing all those oppressed by the devil, for God was with Him. We are
witnesses of all that He did both in the country of the Jews and in
Jerusalem. They put Him to death by hanging Him on a tree. This man
God raised on the third day and granted that He be visible, not to all
the people, but to us, the witnesses chosen by God in advance, who ate
and drank with Him after He rose from the dead. He commissioned us to
preach to the people and testify that He is the one appointed by God
as judge of the living and the dead. To Him all the  prophets bear
witness, that everyone who believes in Him will receive forgiveness of
sins through His name.”

We are having beautiful and sunny days and the temperature is warm. I
thank the Lord for these nice days. The Island Government has written
to me that I owe them $1,200 in taxes. I do not have any money to pay
this bill. They give me a few weeks to pay this money and if I do not
pay it, then they will drive me out of my house and sell the house. I
am praying every day that the Lord helps me to find some people to
give me the money that is needed. Please send me what you can afford
and pray that I can get this money next week. Thank you very much.

Below you will find the message of Our Lord and Savior. Jesus helped
me by giving me the words that follow, “I bless you My brother Melvin
and all My brothers and sisters who have great love for Me, who pray
every day and love to go to church at least every Sunday. From the
reading above, you know that I was the one who selected Peter to be an
Apostle and I named him the Head of My Church. He went to many places
and preached to the people as I had told him. He spoke very well about
Me, how I was baptized by Saint John the Baptist and received the Holy
Spirit. He wrote that I went about teaching the people and healing all
the sick. The Jews are the ones who put Me to death by hanging Me on
the cross. Peter said that I was raised from the death after three
days and I remained with the Apostles for forty days teaching them and
showing them that I am truly risen from the dead. My dear friends, I
am calling you all to come and believe in Me and follow Me every day
of your life. Then I will come and get you and bring you to heaven
where you will live in union with Me for ever. I bless you all.”
