An End To All Affliction! Sally is the quintessential official Lord of the Rings! She has gotten so many rings that were later either thrown away, sold or collected back by erratic, flash in the pan lovers! She had gone through cycles of acceptance and love only to be followed by rejection and she is beginning to think that there is a curse following her. She believes the “village people” are “sitting” on her destiny because of her “star!” She even tried to be nice and overly courteous in her subsequent relationships, but the approach never worked. Her second name seemed to be afflictions.

The Johnsons are the award winners of The Tom and Jerry Couple. They fought at every opportunity. Playfully, seriously, they kept at it. At a time, they even thought it must be the elder sister of the wife’s mum that is behind their afflictions! 

They never agreed on anything together. They were always at loggerheads and at each other’s throats! It is what you will call a toxic relationship. Imagine two people wrapped in thorns who are trying to embrace each other! They kept hurting one another! Can there be An End To All Affliction?

Let’s look at the scripture! 

Mar 13:19 (KJV) For in those days shall be affliction, such AS WAS NOT FROM THE BEGINNING of the creation which God created unto this time, neither shall be.

Afflictions were never part of the plan of God for your relationships or marriage! 

Again, look at another scripture in direct reference to marriage! 

Mat 19:8 (KJV) He saith unto them, Moses because of the hardness of your hearts suffered you to put away your wives: but FROM THE BEGINNING IT WAS NOT SO.

Jesus, all these afflictions, all the anomalies were never there from the beginning! They came in along the way! They are experiences to be rejected, not entertained! 

The anomalies were never part of God’s original plan! There must be An End To All Affliction!

I love the way Message Translation puts it! 

Mat 19:8 (MSG) Jesus said, “Moses provided for divorce as a concession to your hardheartedness, but it IS NOT PART OF GOD’S ORIGINAL PLAN.

The word “affliction” in Matt. 13:19 is “thlipsis” in Greek which means pressure, compression, affliction, distress of mind, distressing circumstances, and trial

Are you going through any of the above? It is time to get out of them because they are not in God’s original plans for you.

Apostle Paul used same Greek word here:

2Co 2:4 (KJV) For out of much affliction and anguish of heart

I pray for you, every anguish of hearts in your relationship and marriage ends today in Jesus’ name! There is An End To All Affliction!
