A Message From AWFTL Bible Teacher, Archbishop Foley Beach

November 16, 2022

Dear Friend in Christ,

Greetings in the Name of Jesus Christ our Lord and only Savior!

Each year at this time we ask folks to take a moment and consider supporting A Word from the Lord with a gift to help with our financial needs. Although A Word from the Lord is a volunteer organization, it costs money to purchase broadcast time, to pay for some of our internet platforms, and to produce our programs.  And this is only made possible by people like you who desire to partner with us to share God's Word with radio, various internet platforms, podcasts, and one-minute messages.

This coming year we hope to reach into some places where we call the Gospel Gap -- places where the Church and Gospel ministries are not touching.  We have developed several plans to broadcast in strategic places in North American cities where the Word of God is not heard.  Would you consider helping us?  You can click HERE or go to www.AwordfromtheLord.org and click on donate.  Your donation is confidential and our platform is secure.  If you would like to make a one-time gift, or even better, sign up for monthly gifts, we can continue to teach and share the Word of God throughout the world.  You may also write a check and mail it to: A Word from the Lord, P.O. Box 636, Monroe, GA, 30655. Thank you for your consideration.

In Christ,

Jesus Followers Are Told to: “Go home to your friends and tell them how much the Lord has done for you”

Jesus Followers Are Told to: “Go home to your friends and tell them how much the Lord has done for you”

Jesus Followers Are Told to: “Go home to your friends and tell them how much the Lord has done for you

MESSAGE SUMMARY: Jesus expects you, as a Jesus Follower, to go and to make Disciples while sharing God’s Word through your personal relationships! Therefore, you should share the Word of the Lord with people that you know. However, when you discuss the Gospel with those you know well, you are often inhibited and constrained. Paul tells you, in Romans 1:16, that you should never be ashamed to communicate the Gospel: “I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.". When you communicate stories of your life situations and experiences with the people you know and with whom you have relationships, they will ask you questions. From these conversational questions will come a natural discourse about your faith and relationship with Jesus in your life because you are a Jesus Follower. In Mark 5:19-20, Jesus was very explicit that we are to go to our “friends” and tell them of Jesus’ good news: “’Go home to your friends and tell them how much the Lord has done for you, and how he has had mercy on you.’ And he went away and began to proclaim in the Decapolis how much Jesus had done for him, and everyone marveled.". Jesus, in Luke 9:26, also, cautioned us about being ashamed or constrained in communicating His Word: “For whoever is ashamed of me and of my words, of him will the Son of Man be ashamed when he comes in his glory and the glory of the Father and of the holy angels.".

 

TODAY’S PRAYER: Lord, fill me with the simple trust that even out of the most awful evil around me, you are able to bring great good — for me, for others, and for your great glory. In Jesus’ name, amen.     Scazzero, Peter. Emotionally Healthy Spirituality Day by Day (p. 91). Zondervan. Kindle Edition.

TODAY’S AFFIRMATION: Today, because of I am filled with the Holy Spirit, I will not be controlled by my Anxiety. Rather, I will walk in the Spirit’s fruit of Peace. “The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.” (Galatians 5:22f).

SCRIPTURE REFERENCE (ESV): Luke 11:5-8; Matthew 28:18-20; Matthew 16:13-20; Psalms 71a:1-12.

Jesus Followers Are “Commissioned” to “Make Disciples” and Not to Become Members of an Exclusive Holy Club

Jesus Followers Are “Commissioned” to “Make Disciples” and Not to Become Members of an Exclusive Holy Club

Jesus Followers Are “Commissioned" to “Make Disciples” and Not to Become Members of an Exclusive Holy Club

MESSAGE SUMMARY:  We need to welcome new excited Followers of Jesus as members of our Non-Exclusive global fellowship as Followers of Jesus. Those of us who have been brought up in the church or have been in the church for a while can get caught up in our perceived personal righteousness. We get used to the presence of God and His peace in our lives. However, we then encounter a new Followers of Jesus. These new Christians, before their conversion, were living in the ways of the world without God’s peace. Now, these new believers are so excited with their new life; however, their outward manifestation of their conversion may not “fit” with our personal Christian behavioral norms. Sadly, too many modern Christians judge and condemn these new, excited believers for their enthusiasm rather than loving, encouraging, and embracing these new Followers of Jesus. We can learn from Jesus’ rebuke of the Pharisees, who exhibited similar non-supportive behavior of Christians in Matthew 5:20: “For I tell you, unless your righteousness exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees, you will never enter the kingdom of heaven.”.

 

TODAY’S PRAYER: Father, when I read even part of the story of Job, I too am overwhelmed by your “wildness.” Your ways and timing are beyond me. Job moved from hearing about you to having “seen you.” Lead me, Lord, on a pathway so that I too can pray as Job prayed: “My ears had heard of you, but now my eyes have seen you” (Job 42:5). In Jesus’ name, amen.    Scazzero, Peter. Emotionally Healthy Spirituality Day by Day (p. 89). Zondervan. Kindle Edition.

TODAY’S AFFIRMATION: Today, because of I am filled with the Holy Spirit, I will not be controlled by my Inconsistencies. Rather, I will walk in the Spirit’s fruit of Faithfulness. “The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.” (Galatians 5:22f).

We Need Your Help, Today, in Closing America’s “Gospel Gap” (SPECIAL: 1-MINUTE VIDEO)

We Need Your Help, Today, in Closing America’s “Gospel Gap” (SPECIAL: 1-MINUTE VIDEO)

December 19, 2021

We Need Your Help, Today, in Closing America’s “Gospel Gap (SPECIAL: 1-MINUTE VIDEO)

MESSAGE SUMMARY:  Word From The Lord ministry (AWFTL) strives to, effectively and efficiently, deliver the Lord’s Word through Gospel-focused messages to large numbers of people whom neither the Gospel nor Jesus play a significant role in their lives.

Today, this Gospel message is needed more than ever because America is rapidly repositioning its environment and culture away from America’s founding principles and the Gospel’s principles of Love and Trust. This repositioning is being driven by the change in roles and focus of America’s key institutions (e.g., family, churches, judicial, media, government, education, military). The negative consequences of this institutional repositioning are created and promulgated by a “Gospel Gap”.

The “Gospel Gap” occurs when the prime thesis of Jesus’ Gospel’s “Great Commandment, “Love thy neighbor as thyself”, has either been lost or never really considered by vast numbers and segments of Americans. The “Gospel Gap” is further exacerbated by the institutional failure of churches and ministries to focus on fulfillment of Jesus’ “Great Commission” – “Go and make disciples”. It is this “Gospel Gap” that presents AWFTL with both the opportunity and, indeed, the obligation to reach and begin the change of people who will close the “Gospel Gap”.

A Word From The Lord (AWFTL) is driven by the Holy Spirit and God’s will. We need your continuing prayers and financial support to provide increasing opportunities for people to have “contacts” with God’s Word. We hope that you will continue help AWFTL to “be a part of fulfilling Jesus’ ‘Great Commission’” and, therefore, being a participant in addressing the “Gospel Gap”!

TODAY’S PRAYER: Father, I confess that when difficulties and trials come into my life, large or small, I mostly grumble and complain. I realize the trials James talks about are not necessarily “walls,” but they are difficult to bear, nonetheless. Fill me with such a vision of a transformed life, O God, that I might actually consider it “pure joy” when you bring trials my way. I believe, Lord. Help my unbelief. In Jesus’ name, amen.     Scazzero, Peter. Emotionally Healthy Spirituality Day by Day (p. 94). Zondervan. Kindle Edition.

TODAY’S AFFIRMATIONToday, Because of who I am in Jesus Christ, I will not be driven by Hatred. Rather, I will abide in the Lord’s Love. “I am the vine; you are the branches. If a man remains in Me and I in him, he will bear much fruit; apart from Me you can do nothing.” (John 15:5).
