During my prayer this morning, I gave thanks to Jesus for all the members, friends and supporters of The ATLAH Missionary Church, and The Manning Report who have sacrificed so much to hold up my arms; (Exodus 17:12) those who endured the abuse from family, friends and the run of the mill Black and White people who are cursed by Black and racist pride.
Those members who have stood with me to feed the hungry more than 1 million meals over the past 25 years. I thank you for allowing our church building to serve as a shelter for the homeless, a clothing distribution center for the naked, and a school for children grades first thru high school.
To those who have given financially, sacrificed financially, yet have never complained or argued the wisdom of feeding and employing many people who don’t believe The ATLAH Church or its mission.
Here is what the God on the other side of the prayer line said to me. When you, James David Manning, were in Raiford Prison, I visited you, when you were hungry in that same prison, I fed you. When you were released from prison and was homeless, I gave you a bed and a roof. I did these things not because of your merit, but because of my mercy.
Moreover I have given unto you these members, friends and supporters that you might use them to show the same mercy that I have shown you. All that I have given unto you, none can take them out of your hand and I will bless and prosper them so that they will never be defeated, nor will they ever beg bread. Many will enjoy great fruits and bountiful harvest, and others will not taste of death until they see me coming in glory.
Preach the Word, that I gave my Son and His Blood that all might be saved.
Dr. James David Manning
