Understanding Affliction: Affliction Originates From Within
On this week's broadcast / podcast episode of Words of Life, we conclude our four-part series: UNDERSTANDING AFFLICTION. Within this week's message, we challenge one another with introspection because sometimes, it's not another person - it's not satan nor is GOD to blame. There are times that 'affliction' originates from within our deceitfully wicked hearts and it's at times like these that we must challenge ourselves to simply admit: "it's me - it's me - it's me O LORD 🎹🎤 standing in the need of prayer!"

Understanding Affliction: Affliction Assails Us Through 'People'
People.GOD loves 'us' more than anything. HE is patient. Merciful. Longsuffering. HIS loving attributes towards us are innumerable.And yet, our ability to withstand 'offense' from those we interact with daily, doesn't always measure up if we're honest and introspective with our efforts.Tune in to the 3rd of a 4 part sermon series (Understanding Affliction) as we review specific steps to consider and implement, to handle the 'affliction of offense' in a manner pleasing to HIM.UNDERSTANDING AFFLICTION (SERIES)Sermon III - Affliction (Offense) Assails Us Through PeopleLuke 17:1Song of the Week - YOU.

Understanding Affliction: Affliction Emanates From Satan
In episode 1, we studied our understanding of affliction being a necessary component of our sanctification, in lieu of eternity, and why GOD lays affliction upon those who belong to HIM.Within our 2nd episode of the series, we study why we should become 'proactive instead of reactive' when our adversary (satan) buffets us (with affliction) but for totally different reasons.'UNDERSTANDING AFFLICTION' (4 Part Sermon Series)Today's Message (2 of 4): AFFLICTION EMANATES FROM SATANEphesians 6:11-13Song of the Week: YOU Found Me / MDI.

Understanding Affliction: Affliction Is Lain Upon Us 'By GOD'
Oftentimes, we are reactive instead of being proactive when we feel attacked, misunderstood or maybe even being the subject of untruths. Yet, before we can withstand 'affliction' in a manner pleasing to GOD, we should attempt to gain an 'understanding' of its origin and then pray for HOLY SPIRIT'S assistance accordingly.Tune in to the first of a four-part series as we delve into our topic...'UNDERSTANDING AFFLICTION'Part I - 'Affliction' Is Lain Upon Us By GODPrimary Scripture(s) - Isaiah 53:7; Acts 8:30-32Pastor Mark D.

Invitation. A request for one to join, participate or take part in an activity or festivity, with the French acronym - R.S.V.P. (Repondez sil vous plait = please reply) - requested as the desired response. As James writes a letter to Christians scattered abroad, he reminds them of what genuine faith looks like and redirects them due to their behaviors and choices (now) mimicking their surroundings instead of JESUS who called them. In essence, James encouraged them to eschew their (worldly) wisdom to desire the wisdom of GOD which would help them make better choices to partner with their faith. Times may have changed but people have not.Tune in to the 'Words of Life' broadcast / podcast to consider the primary application point for our week: with many of the same invitations (tests, trials & temptations) presented before us (daily) to submit to or resist , who do we routinely R.S.V.P. to?

Body Soul Spirit
Every human being has been created in the image of GOD as in: we are 'tri' (3) part beings. A perfect analogy exists to symbolize this tri-part relationship if we consider: ice → water→ steam, as symbolic personalities of the same essence.The essence of who we are, body, soul and spirit, are the 3 components that manifest themselves in our daily lives and will reverberate in eternity, for each of us. Thus, it is imperative that we try to grasp and align the three, the way that GOD created us to function, prior to meeting him as our eternal futures commence.Tune in for this episode of 'Words of Life' wherein we examine the metaphorical similarities found in the makeup of a computer to comprehend the relationship our 'body, soul and spirit' performs in likewise manner.

In this week's edition of 'Words of Life'...COVID-19: an acute 'pandemic' (issue/disease affecting a wide variety of populations) causing varying feelings of restriction, constraint, limitation, and/or confinement.Scripture in Context...Apostle Paul addresses (with concern) a young congregation about the importance of a proper mindset amidst the varied, tempting surroundings in which he planted this Colossian church. Seemingly infected with varying heresies and religious rituals which were not required or requested, Paul encourages them that they mustn't bind themselves to such when JESUS had procured their release with HIS atoning sacrifice.The young church was guilty of perpetuating an 'institutionalized' mindset, choosing to remain within the symbolic doors of religious 'lockdown', although an open door (JESUS) invited their active steps towards liberty and freedom.Just as Paul challenged and encouraged this young congregation @ Colosse, the challenge for us this week remains...'Have 'you' identified that which causes 'you' to struggle, fail or even remain restricted (limited) by, in regards to the spiritual maturity or progression GOD expects from each of us?'Everyone - and I do mean EVERYONE... has 'tendencies.'Know thyself - GOD does.'RELEASED'Primary Text: Colossians 1:13-14Song of the Week: 'Faith Is' featuring Alex J.P.S. - Not enough time to watch the video broadcast?Simply download (free) the podcast edition or watch any episode from Seasons 1, 2 or 3 anywhere digital downloads are available. https://www.youtube.com/user/WordsofLifeCC/playlists

The Spiritual Cliff
Everything that we 'see or experience' emanates from the 'unseen' realm. We are not dealing with 'people' - it is the spirits driving the person/people '...for we wrestle not against flesh and blood but principalities, powers, rulers of the darkness of this world and spiritual wickedness in high (unseen realm) places.' Ephesians 6:12 America has a choice to make but know this: GOD'S patience awaiting our nation's repentance will not last forever. 'THE SPIRITUAL CLIFF'Romans 1:24-32Pastor Mark D.

Debunking the myth that we have the ability to 'find' GOD (or most commonly indicated - "I stopped doing bad or I got myself saved, etc..." as if GOD was lost like a set of keys and we 'found' HIM.GOD has never been lost - we (humanity) are.GOD condescends or 'stoops low' to locate the humble and contrite heart dedicated to drawing near to HIM in preparation for eternity.Tune in to find out if you are 'lost or found' and how this impacts your eternity - right here on 'Words of Life.'

A 'Closed' Account
'Closed' accounts summon the idea of accounts to which no further credits or debits can be added. Similarities exist in eternity as well because all have incurred 'earthly' debits/debt with GOD having the right to close (charge off) each of our eternal accounts (lives). To 'charge off' - to close an account with the debt still owed. The saddest reality? Nobody's account (life) has to be 'charged off'. Each of our debts (to GOD) have been 'paid in full' yet, many will refuse GOD'S gracious & merciful offer to end up paying - with their eternal existence - suffering apart from HIM. Tune in to this week's broadcast (or podcast) as we challenge our viewing and listening audience: are you THAT person? 'Today' can be your day of salvation, securing your eternal account, prior to giving an accounting of our lives to GOD. Your choice.Your future.Forever. Please - plan (prior to your account closing date) accordingly. A 'CLOSED' ACCOUNTHebrews 9:26-28Song of the Week: 'I WILL TRUST' feat. Twala Ingram

REALITY vs. EXPECTATION - YOU MUST MAKE A CHOICE
Reality: the state of actuality; how things truly 'are' with no room for guesswork.Expectation: the hope (or belief) that something which has not yet happened - will occur with no doubt attached.'Death' is a reality that we all must face and deal with no matter how deep the pain but GOD has made us a promise through HIS SON (JESUS): we can trust in HIM to experience eternal safety and joy as well as be reunited with our 'saved' loved ones.Death is not an end - it is an entry into eternity.Tune in to this episode of The Words of Life Show wherein we challenge our listeners: has the temporal reality and sting of death overtaken the glorious, eternal hope that GOD would that we look towards expectantly?'REALITY vs. EXPECTATION - WE MUST MAKE A CHOICELuke 24:1-6Song of the Week: 'MISS YOU DAD' (feat.

As GOD transports us from bad, bitter or sometimes, broken - oftentimes, the lesson HE desires for us to apply is: HE will not wrestle us for control of our symbolic steering wheel(s) (situations, circumstances or people) if we insist upon maintaining a stranglehold upon it. We will encounter seasons where GOD wants us to simply 'let go' (of it or them) and 'cease striving.'
