Suffering and His Identity from Pastor Marie

Pain Relief

1 Corinthians 15:45-46 (TPT)

”The spiritual life is to be pursued as though NO spiritual life exists because it is not really a separate life — Only ONE Life exists, and that is from God which is given to us moment to moment.”

Christianity — Deconstruction and Reconstruction surrounding CHAOS

Chaos — a cause of instability and PAIN:  Physical, Emotional, and Spiritual

General Pain — 3 Types : 

  1. Burns, cuts, lacerations — damage to organs, muscles, bones, etc.
  2. Inflammation — swelling, throbbing, etc.
  3. Neuropathy — excessive and abnormal sensitivity: magnifies ordinary sensory outputs and converts them into pain

External Energy used for relief; Massage therapy, Sonic Heat, Hydro-thermal

Emotional and Spiritual Neuropathy  – constant emotional pain, lacking peace in their minds and hearts

John 14: 27 Jesus’ peace

  1. Restores to ONENES
  2. Single-minded focus
  3. Clears confusion
  4. Stability

“World’s” peace — lack of conflict

James 1:8 — “A double-minded man is UNSTABLE in all of his ways.”

Unstable Mind — yield Confusion — Doubt — Shakey Faith, causing “Spiritual Sensory Overload.”

S.S.O. — sends wrong signals to our minds and spirits that cause pain by magnifying untruthful messages

Pain is real — messages are NOT– “Nobody likes you.” — Too fat/ skinny/ tall/short. Etc

Negative messages – common goal: Pain, Sickness, and Death

Philippians 4:4-7 “Rejoice — communicate with God  — be Grateful.”

Philippians 4:7 “…and the Peace of God will keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” — Because of your RELATIONSHIP with Him

Your Hearts — will receive inner peace

Your Minds  — will gain Clarity of thought
