4th Sunday in Advent
St. Thomas, Apostle Day on the Church Calendar
It's our final Advent message. The Christmas week is here! Joy to the World! This morning the Advent devotion is "Engaged in Kingdom Building." The key verse is 2 Samuel 7:16.
Today is also St. Thomas Day. We'll say a prayer for St. Thomas Day to open the show, and close with a prayer for this Advent Sunday. Thanks for joining us!
We are continuing our interview with the youth of the KNOW ME no me Institute prayerful journey. Our minds are influenced by much as we strive to live our lives daily. We are praising Allah (G-D)(SWT)for all the benefits we receive and we pray that we are able to recognize these benefits. We are taking a personal stand to accept that " all sons of Adam are created honorable", and are not a cursed description to justify someone's cruel and inhumane treatment.
Imani Abdu-Shakoor;Isaiah Abdu-Shakoor;Jabril Abdu-Shakoor;Yusuf Abdu-Shakoor;Nathaniel Williams;Shamel Williams Perez;Samuel Williams Perez;Eric Jenkins and a variety of honored adults are what makes up The Know Me / no me Ins-stitute. Martha Nailah Williams, founder and director, all praises are due to Allah alone!
We are admonished to guard our hearts. This is vitally important in the world that we live in now. As we look around, we see all types of inputs coming at us that attempts to peck away at our foundation in God. It is the samll foxes that spoil the vine. How much of the world that we live in can we let in before it begin to chip away at our foundation? Or should our goal be to be of this world but not live according to it's dictates about what is right or wrong? How do some of us sometimes start off fighting the good fight of faith and end up shipwrecked on a backslidden island? We will discuss this and more, so join us for this word from God. .
I SAMUEL 30: 1-25 DAVID AVENGES ZIKLAG, ZIKLAG DESTROYED BY FIRE.
vs. 1. And it came to pass, when David and his men were come to Ziklag on the third day, that the Amalekites had invaded the South, and Ziklag, and burned it with fire;
vs. 2. And had taken the women captive that were therein: they slew not any, either great or small, but carried them away.
vs. 3. So David and his men came to the city, and behold it was burned with fire; and their wives, and their sons, and their daughters, were taken captives.
vs. 4. Then David and the people that were with him lifted up their voice, and wept, until they had more power to weep.
vs. 5. And David's two wives were taken captives, Ahinoam the Jezreelitess, and Abigail the wife of Nabal the Carmelite.
vs. 6. And David was greatly distressed; for the people spake of stoning him, because the soul of all the people was grieved, every man for his sons and for his daughters: but David encouraged himself in the LORD his GOD.
vs. 7. And David said to Abiathar the priest, Ahimelech's son, I pray thee, bring me hither the ephod. And Abiathar brought thither the ephod to David.
vs. 8. And David enquired at the LORD, saying, shall I pursue after this troop ? Shall I overtake them ?
And he answered him pursue: for thou shall surely overtake them, and without fail recover all. vs. 9. So david went, he and the 600 men that were with him, and came to the brook Besor, where those that were left behind stayed.
in Self Help
Just listen to the music, and let your body move... Still not sure? Look at how the branches on the trees move in a wind... They don't try to do this step or that step... They just surrender to the breeze that moves them. Move like that... Move like the dust particles dancing in the light... Just surrender to the breath, and allow the movement that wants to move you ignite your spirit and dance with abandon...
