LIFE, ETERNAL,      “WORTH CONSIDERING”   7/6/20      From Ken<><

Today’s Scripture                 (Across my desk this morning from Texas.)
“…David was greatly distressed…But David strengthened himself in the LORD his God…”
(1 Samuel 30:6, ESV)

Strengthen Yourself
Thirteen years after David was anointed to be the next king of Israel, he was still living as a fugitive from King Saul. Then one day, he and his six hundred men came home and found their city had been burned, their possessions taken, and their families taken captive. It was the worst defeat of David’s life. He and his men wept until they could not weep anymore. He was tempted to think, God, I’ve been faithful year after year. This is the final straw.  But David made a decision: “I am not allowing this discouragement to stay. I am strong in the Lord. I am His anointed.” You can talk yourself into defeat or into victory. When you speak the right way, strength comes, courage comes, vision comes, healing comes. Turn the discouragement around and say, “Yes, this is tough, but I am strong in the Lord. No weapon formed against me will prosper.” Strengthen yourself in the Lord.

A Prayer for Today
Father, thank You that the power of Your life in me is greater than the greatest force that can ever come against me. Thank You that I can put discouragement behind me and stir up my faith. I believe that no weapon that is formed against me will prosper. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Ken’s Comments:

We all have days that are good and productive.  And we have days where bed would have been a better option.    Sometime it is hormones, sometimes we did something stupid and regret it.  Sometime it just is what it is.  Sometimes a demonic attack that we did not see coming.  But most of the time when we have a bad day it is due to we have listened to the lie of the enemy as did Adam and Eve at the tree of Knowledge.   The fist temptation if the lust’s of the flesh.  The fruit looked really good to eat.  Next they were told tolled it would make them  wise, now that sounded like a good thing….  And next was the lie that they would be like God,  knowing good and evil.  So from a selfish perspective no lies were told.  The fruit was good to eat, made them wise and they then knew the difference between good and evil.   But the lie under it all was hidden as they did die spiritually.  And the world given to Adam then became the world of lucifer.  So they did
find out about good and evil even to the place of seeing one of their son’s murder the other one.  And they became wise in sorrow and it was true that they were given as promised but they were not giving all the facts in context to evaluate the facts properly.  So all the kids of the human race caught the same virus for the past 6,000 years and most of us have come to feel that what we have known is the normal way of life when it is really the end of life and the way of eternal death..  

But our Creator was not content to allow us to go that way of death without also giving us an option for life.  So for the past 6,000. years very quietly and effectively HE has been creating another road through the folks who reach out to HIM and wrote down what HE said as HIS TRUTH.  God even told Eve she would have a son that would make things right.  Moses wrote about it and so did many who were sensitive to GOD.  And some have gathered those writings into a book called the Holy Bible.  So now we have the choice of staying on the road to death or finding the detour mape (the Bible) and taking the detour to LIFE.  Of course it is not going to be easy to stop walking the road with all your friends that love the death road. If you check out the LIFE detour,   your friends will quickly tell you is a stupid way to go and much too rocky and hilly for them.  But bottom line,  you are going to need to decide for yourself as it is your eternal life or your eternal death is involved.  It will be a now if you have time to make the choice.

Yours, in HIS great love and wonderful Grace and Mercy,    Ken<><

Worthy Brief <;
Jonah 1:14, 16 Therefore they cried out to the Lord and said, “We pray, O Lord, please do not let us perish for this man’s life, and do not charge us with innocent blood; for You, O Lord, have done as it pleased You.”  Then the men feared the Lord exceedingly, and offered a sacrifice to the Lord and took vows.   While most read the story of Jonah focusing on Jonah’s journey, I want to pause and examine the lives of the pagan sailors. What a journey they were on! We see the hand of God touching them providentially through Jonah’s disobedience. Talk about God bringing good from evil. Here He draws them into a desperate sea voyage and almost incidentally reveals to them the impotence of their gods, who have no power whatsoever to stop the deadly storm. In their total helplessness the God of Heaven then introduces Himself through his runaway prophet. And suddenly, the sailors are crying out to YHVH.  They are not crying out to their gods any longer – but now are crying to the true God of Israel.  And God performs a miracle for them, when Jonah is tossed into the sea, the storm suddenly calmed… and the amazing miracle evokes what sounds like prophesying, as they offer sacrifices and vows in worship to YHVH. “For You, O Lord, have done as you pleased!” The whole crew is converted. So, while Jonah is fish food – there’s a revival happening on board.   And now these wonder struck sailors have quite a fish story to tell in all their subsequent travels concerning the wayward prophet who disappeared beneath the waves as his God stilled the perfect storm. And the Lord has a boat full of newborn missionaries heading to Tarshish…

World in Brief:  Iran is under intense pressure after four serious explosions that appear to have damaged key infrastructure linked to its missile and nuclear program, as well as other facilities.
Iran has warned Israel and other “foes” against “hostile actions” after an explosion and fire damaged the Natanz nuclear complex.    The U.S. economy added 4.8 million jobs in June as it struggles to recover from the business closures forced by the coronavirus pandemic, the government reported Thursday, even as it said another 1.4 million laid-off workers filed for unemployment benefits last week.   Activists are planning major protests and demonstrations in Washington DC over Independence Day weekend, the Washington Examiner reports. Summing up the reason for the protests, one activist told the Examiner: “What is Independence Day to black folks? What was Independence Day to honestly anyone but the white economic elite on [July 4, 1776]? Poor folks and women couldn’t even vote. It’s a hoax.”  (Ken<>< “It gave us the rights of free speech, worship and assemble and the ability to protect ourselves from tyranny among other things.  Socialists use social ruptures for their own agenda to bring a nation into the slavery of the few.

ALOHA FAMILY AND FRIENDS,  Beloved of me and God,    John 3:14-18

VICTORY       “WORTH CONSIDERING”     7/3/20      From Ken<><
Today’s Scripture
“…The LORD your God, who is going before you, will fight for you, as he did for you in Egypt, before your very eyes…”  (Deuteronomy 1:30, NIV)

He Goes before You
The Israelites had been freed from slavery and were on their way to the Promised Land. They had all kinds of enemy nations surrounding them and no military equipment or training. Now they were out in the heat of the desert without water and food sources. They felt overwhelmed, outnumbered, and inadequate. In the natural, they didn’t have a chance. But God spoke today’s Scripture to them. They had seen God part the Red Sea and destroy Pharaoh and his army.
You may feel that the odds are against you. But God is saying to you what He said to them, “I’m going before you, and I’m fighting for you.” Whatever is trying to stop you is no match for our God. One touch of His favor and He’ll turn that Red Sea into dry ground. You’re not going to have to struggle and fight. It may look intimidating, like it’s never going to change, but don’t worry. God is going to do something extraordinary.

A Prayer for Today
Father, thank You that You are the Almighty God who goes before me and fights for me. Thank You for all the great things You have done for me and for all the extraordinary victories that You are about to bring me through. I believe that this is a new day of Your favor. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Ken’s Thoughts,
Yes,  we all enjoy a Romans 8 VICTORY.  Love sings with Jesus prevails are words from an old song I love:   Charity.    By Kenn Gullliksen
Take some time to kick back and allow the thought behind the words to sink in.  Worth It…

Even in the very little things the enemy waits for us with the fowler’s net to try to make us useless for our KING.  Yesterday a guy was by who in the past had stolen tools from me,  holds me in disrespect and lies without conscience.   I am trying to help him find Jesus.  He borrowed my favorite tool, a buck knife to do a little job for my wife and latter I realized he had not returned it.  The enemy pounded me that evening about how he had stolen it, trying to get me into a negative attitude and to call him on it.  Late last night the Holy Spirit reminded me that I had not checked the job site before I went to sleep.  This morning I was reminded and went out and checked the area and found it in the dirt next to an old board and hard to spot.  So I was praising the Lord this morning that I had not picked up an attitude and did something unloving and stupid that further divided this guy for our Lord’s Kingdom.  For as a Christian what we do does immediately reflect on Christ Jesus our LORD.   If the world sees any pride or disobedience in us, they blame GOD.  The World thinks God is responsible for the mess down here on earth.  But God put Adam in charge and Adam gave the world back to lucifer by joining him in pride and rebellion.   We in turn were born the dead children of Adam and man is responsible for the condition of the world.  But God does not want robots He wants children who are like HIM.  So he provides the means for us to choose light, humility, obedience and re-birth in Christ Jesus as LORD.   And allows each of us the choice of our own eternity either light with Him or alone in darkness for all eternity.  Our souls have been created eternal so the only choice is placement.  A new eternal body with HIM or no body and darkness alone.  The only reason that I have 5 senses is my soul now has the temporary use of a body created and borrowed from God.  Think about it.  Will God in eternity still create a body for those who reject HIM?   Think about it.   It will set you on fire to help save others whose souls are headed into darkness, alone, for eternity by their foolish choices.

If we don’t have the LORD’S victory it is usually due to some form of flesh that we have refused to agree with the Holy Spirit as to the danger.  We compromise, Rationalize and try to bring it along with us into HIS Kingdom and get stopped at the gate prior to securing a victory. So if we really want victory in Christ Jesus we will have to learn to see sin as it is seen and evaluated through the Word of God.  Our Great Creator is not going to allow any form of sin to enter into HIS coming Kingdom of Righteousness.  His new Kingdom will be a Kingdom of Righteousness just read the last chapter of the Revelation of Christ Jesus.  In our generation the space between good and bad has dissappeared and the good and bad is being merged to all is grey with no accountability in eternity.  Heaven and Hell are being replaced by socialistic atheism where there is no accountability.  So our children can see no real issues with sin or even murder at all.  As what difference will it make.  So without an eternal God Vision our children are perishing.  Here is a prayer song concerning the restoration of HIS VISION.   Enjoy….

Rom.8:37-39 “Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors and gain an overwhelming victory through Him who loved us [so much that He died for us]. 38 For I am convinced [and continue to be convinced—beyond any doubt] that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present and threatening, nor things to come, nor powers, 39 nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the [unlimited] love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”

     “WORTH CONSIDERING”   7/2/20      From Ken<><

Today’s Scripture

“…Pray for each other so that you may be healed. The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results…”  (James 5:16, NLT)

Pray for Others

It’s good to pray and ask God to help you with every need, but don’t stop there. Today’s Scripture tells us to pray for one another. You have the ability to help someone else reach their destiny. There are people God has put in your life who won’t become all they were created to be without you praying. They don’t have the faith to accomplish their dreams, they won’t break the addiction, they won’t overcome the challenge without you stepping up and asking God to help them.  Prayer moves the hands that rule the world. Prayer causes the God who created the universe to make things happen that we couldn’t make happen. When you pray, all of heaven comes to attention and the angels go to work. Chains of depression, sickness, and loneliness that have held others back begin to loosen. It may not happen overnight, but your prayers have great power and will produce wonderful results.

A Prayer for Today
Father, thank You that when I pray, it says that my prayers come up before Your throne as incense and You listen. Teach me to pray powerful prayers that produce wonderful results for the people whom You’ve brought into my life. I will lift them up. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Ken’s Comments:
The scripture quoted in James is far more impacting that the NLT translation.   The Amplified:
“And the prayer of faith will restore the one who is sick, and the Lord will raise him up; and if he has committed sins, he will be forgiven.  The K. .J. translation is: “And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.”  So what does the Greek say: It does not have the verb so leaves it up to the reader to figure out.  But it does include prayer, in faith,  restore ,sick and LORD raise and forgive.
James does add 5:16 “ Therefore, confess your sins to one another [your false steps, your offenses], and pray for one another, that you may be healed and restored. The heartfelt and persistent prayer of a righteous man (believer) can accomplish much [when put into action and made effective by God—it is dynamic and can have tremendous power].   Amplified Translation

So the key to answered prayer as per James (who grew up with Jesus as a son of Mary and Joseph) is as follows: Be on Holy Ground, no unconfessed sin.  Be in FAITH.  (That is to have the heart feeling that healing shall happen.   Not one of those prayers, “ Oh God, if it be your will please heal brother George or ??”  And further to be consistent.  We tend to grow in faith as we pray and are victorious.  We tend to loose what little faith we have if nothing happens.

I often use the concept of batteries.  Each one of us has a capacity for a certain charge.  Sometimes we are fully charged and some times not.  The Bible teaches that we can keep fully charged as we ingest God’s Truth.  John 17,  (whole chapter)     20 “I do not pray for these alone [it is not for their sake only that I make this request], but also for [all] those who [will ever] believe and trust in Me through their message, 21 that they all may be one; just as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be one in Us, so that the world may believe [without any doubt] that You sent Me.  22 I have given to them the glory and honor which You have given Me, that they may be one, just as We are one;

Notice here the wording very carefully in verse 22    “May be one”….  That the glory (POWER) is made available through our unity.  Being of one mind and one spirit connected together.  So when our little battery is correctly connected to every other little battery (The They and We) then the voltage and amps go up in order to be able to do more good stuff for our KING.  Eph. 4:11-16 follows  the same thought concerning the compacting of the “Living Stones” in order to see Jesus.    ( Please Study the Following. )

Ephesians 4:11-16 Amplified Bible (AMP) And [His gifts to the church were varied and] He Himself appointed some as apostles [special messengers, representatives], some as prophets [who speak a new message from God to the people], some as evangelists [who spread the good news of salvation], and some as pastors and teachers [to shepherd and guide and instruct], 12 [and He did this] to fully equip and perfect the saints (God’s people) for works of service, to build up the body of Christ [the church]; 13 until we all reach oneness in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God, [growing spiritually] to become a mature believer, reaching to the measure of the fullness of Christ [manifesting His spiritual completeness and exercising our spiritual gifts in unity]. 14 So that we are no longer children [spiritually immature], tossed back and forth [like ships on a stormy sea] and carried about by every wind of [shifting] doctrine, by the cunning and trickery of [unscrupulous] men, by the deceitful scheming of people ready to do anything [for personal profit]. 15 But speaking the truth in love [in all things—both our speech and our lives expressing His truth], let us grow up in all things into Him [following His example] who is the Head—Christ. 16 From Him the whole body [the church, in all its various parts], joined and knitted firmly together by what every joint supplies, when each part is working properly, causes the body to grow and mature, building itself up [a]in [unselfish] love.  Amplified Bible really gets the point across.  A divided house can not stand.

Christians are in God’s earthly school of learning humility, obedience and unity, are you skipping HIS classes ?

Yours, in HIS great Love and Wonderful Grace and Mercy, Ken<><

FEAR & GOSPEL,    “WORTH CONSIDERING”    7/1/20   (Half of 2020 now gone.)

Today’s Scripture
     (Across my desk this morning from Texas.)
“…None of these things move me…”  (Acts 20:24, NKJV)

Don’t Be Moved
The apostle Paul went through all kinds of unfair situations. He was falsely accused of crimes, beaten with rods, lied about, put in prison, and shipwrecked. In Acts 20, he gives us the secret of living a victorious life: “None of these things move me.” He was saying, “Yes, there were setbacks and disappointments, but I didn’t lose my joy. God is still on the throne. Even being put in prison gave me the opportunity to write about half of the books of the New Testament.”

There’s always something trying to move us, to pull us out of peace, to pull us out of rest. Are you allowing these things to move you? You can’t pray them away. These are tests we all have to pass. Jesus said, “Don’t let your hearts be troubled.” He said troubles will be there, but you don’t have to be moved by them. Stay in peace. Quit letting these things ruin your day.

A Prayer for Today
Father, thank You that I don’t have to be moved by the tests and troubles I face because I know that You are still on the throne. My faith and trust are in You and Your mighty power at work in my life. I declare that You will work Your good plan for my future. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Ken’s Corner:
Of course in Acts the context concerns fear: In verses 20:20-25 Paul is sharing that HIS commitment concerning the life giving message of the Gospel as more important than even his very life.   There is a doctrine going around that teaches that if anyone is supposed to be saved that they will,  and we don’t need to be concerned about it.  Sort of like predestination without foreknowledge.  Or that God has the total say over who is saved and who is not.    That would mean that our free will is a farce and that we are just a bunch of robots.  Some created for living with God and the rest fitted for destruction in eternal darkness.  Of course my question would be, ???  Why in the world did God bother to create a bunch of robots that would wreck everything in running amiss only to later banish them into eternal darkness???   And why would Christ Jesus  write in Rev.22::17 “And the Spirit and the bride say, come.  And let him that heareth say, Come.  And let him that is athirst say come.  And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.”

So in Context with the New Testament it appears to me that it is the responsibility of Christians who really love Jesus are to be responsible for sharing the message of Salvation in word, thought and deed to all who will listen.  If you really believe what Jesus taught about Heaven and Hell you have a serious obligation to share the truth that you have been freely given.  Jesus prayed about us in John 17:20 as follows: “20 Neither for these alone do I pray [it is not for their sake only that I make this request], but also for all those who will ever come to believe in (trust in, cling to, rely on) Me through their word and teaching,  21 That they all may be one, [just] as You, Father, are in Me and I in You, that they also may be one in Us, so that the world may believe and be convinced that You have sent Me.  22 I have given to them the glory and honor which You have given Me, that they may be one [even] as We are one:  23 I in them and You in Me, in order that they may become one and perfectly united, that the world may know and [definitely] recognize that You sent Me and that You have loved them [even] as You have loved Me.  24 Father, I desire that they also whom You have entrusted to Me [as Your gift to Me] may be with Me where I am, so that they may see My glory, which You have given Me [Your love gift to Me]; for You loved Me before the foundation of the world.  25 O just and righteous Father, although the world has not known You and has failed to recognize You and has never acknowledged You, I have known You [continually]; and these men understand and know that You have sent Me.  26 I have made Your Name known to them and revealed Your character and Your very [a]Self, and I will continue to make [You] known, that the love which You have bestowed upon Me may be in them [felt in their hearts] and that I [Myself] may be in them.

In the Psalms 119:9-13 “How shall a young man cleanse his way? By taking heed and keeping watch [on himself] according to Your word [conforming his life to it].  10 With my whole heart have I sought You, inquiring for and of You and yearning for You; Oh, let me not wander or step aside [either in ignorance or willfully] from Your commandments.  11 Your word have I laid up in my heart, that I might not sin against You.  12 Blessed are You, O Lord; teach me Your statutes.  13 With my lips have I declared and recounted all the ordinances of Your mouth.

How could anyone be silent in this world of pain, suffering, sin and death and not share the Gospel of life, peace, joy and the forgiveness freely offered by the mercy of God?  In Psalm 107:1-2 David is recorded as writing: “O give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; for His mercy and loving-kindness endure forever!  2 Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom He has delivered from the hand of the adversary,

So if you are not sharing Jesus, I am deeply concerned that you may not really have HIS life.

Yours, in HIS great love and wonderful Grace and Mercy,   Ken<><

POWER & BOXES,     “WORTH CONSIDERING ”   6/30/20     From Ken<><

Today’s Scripture   (Across my desk this morning from Texas.)
“…I have given them your word and the world has hated them, for they are not of the world any more than I am of the world…”  (John 17:14, NIV)

Be a Barrier Breaker
The Scripture speaks of how we are in the world, but we are not of the world. You may be in a limited environment, but you don’t have to be of it. Don’t let that environment get in you. If you see struggle, lack, and poverty long enough, your mind can become conditioned to thinking, This is who I am. I’ll never have enough. No, that’s where you are, that’s not who you are. That may be what’s been normal. The good news is, you’re a barrier breaker.

Some people try to put you in a box. They’ll tell you such things as, “You’ll never afford a nice house, never get well, never meet the right person.” Because their thinking is limited, they’ll try to put their limitations on you. You have to put your foot down and say, “I refuse to be mediocre because people around me are mediocre. I am a barrier breaker. I’m going to set a new standard.”

A Prayer for Today
Father, thank You that You didn’t create me to be average or to live a mediocre life. Thank You that You’ve given me the power, the favor, and the talent to break out and go further than the limitations around me. I believe that I am a barrier breaker, and I will set a new standard. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Ken’s Reflection:
Really glade to comment on this little word “BOX.”    It brings to memory all of the pastel  houses and cars in the “Edward Scissorhand’s Movie” Where Frankenstein was created by a man to be the good guy on the hill and the village below to be full of mostly losers…

In growing up I remember being trapped over and over in little boxes.  Of course the school box then he military school box because of my rebellion.  Jail for 11 days (a really small box) Then there were the many little church boxes, some helpful, some not.  Even though I became a Christian in 1955 I was still finding myself in little boxes.  Every feel that way, “Is this all that there is?”  I felt that way a lot and it was not helpful, it was depressing.  Then I started seeing a freedom in the scriptures in our Bible.  And often they taught on the word freedom.  They taught that our Heavenly Father really wants us in humility and obedience to be free in HIS TRUTH.

In 1968 the president of the Eugene Chapter of the Full Gospel Businessmen’s Fellowship as a painter came out to my new home in Pleasant Hill, OR to give me a bid on painting my home, He gave me a good price and so I turned him loose, it was a big house.  But very quickly we became friends in Christian Fellowship.  Up front I noticed he came alone and was in no hurry.  Each time he came, in some way he would talk about the ministry of the Holy Spirit to Save, Seal and Empower.  The idea of power became interesting as I knew that my brand of being a Christian was very bland.  So Marvin shared with me concerning the gifts of the Holy Spirit that my Heavenly Father wanted to give to HIS obedient children.  Like gifts under the Christmas tree at Christmas with my name on them but like the old poem, I had to be good…  So I learned a lot from Marvin and started to have some faith about the gifts and asked for the Lord’s help to take care of the stuff in my life that was out of order or in the way.

One day as I was driving from my home to Eugene in my big GMC white 4×4 truck up above all the cars, I started singing a nice church melody that I had learned.  Well I could not remember all the words so I started making up my own and then it slipped over into another language that was very soothing but a little freaky.  But it felt good just to have words for the melody even if I had no idea of what they meant.  So for a week or so, when in my truck, private, away from all, I enjoyed singing in that way.  About a week later Marvin called me up and wanted to know if I would join him at his church for a prayer and Bible study.  I enjoyed Marvin so said sure and went.  As I came into the room there was about 30 people in a circle on fold chairs.  I was on time but felt like I was late.  As I sat down, Marvin asks me if I would mind if they prayed for me.  My answer was,  ” Sure, I can use all the prayer that I can get.”   So he did a strange thing and asked me to kneel in the center of the room.  Now this was getting a little out of hand, but I did not want to go back on my word so in humility I did as was asked to do.  As I knelt down I felt hands being placed upon my back.  And it got heavier and heavier till I felt I had about 600# on my back and could hardly breath.  They begin praying loudly and vibrating and I thought to myself, I will never get out of here if I don’t do something!  Then I though,  perhaps I could use my singing language to calm things down so I started to say some of the words that came to me in singing.  And that did it, They let me up and started praising the LORD for me being baptized in the Holy Spirit for power.  But later, I had to ask Marvin, “Are you sure?  I have been singing like that for several weeks now?  Is that what you were sharing with me about?  Marvin was delighted to tell me yes, you are now in another dimension and outside of your old box in God’s Freedom.  I did, I really felt the fresh wind of the Holy Spirit in leaving my little box church.  In that church I had even taught in my Adult Sunday School class that this experience was not of GOD and had to repent.  From 1968 for the past 50+ years I have been experiencing things that I thought were impossible for the first 13 years of my Christian experience.  So let’s go to the Bible for some scriptures concerning this powerful anointing.

First the Disciples/Apostles became Christians at the resurrection of Christ Jesus in the Upper Room.  Actually they were not Christians until then, John 20:22.  This was when the Holy Spirit was restored as per John 3:16 due to the resurrection of Jesus.  The life that Adam had lost in the Great Rebellion and died was restored.  And then turn to Acts 1:8 where Jesus tell HIS disciples that on Pentecost they would be Baptized by the Holy Spirit in Power to be able to witness for HIM.  This was about 50 days from the time that they were born from above as Christians.  And then in Acts 8 we see Philip converting folks into being Christians but those Samarian Christians did not receive the Power of the Holy Spirit for several months until Peter and John came from Jerusalem, Acts8:14-16.   And again with Saul’s Conversion on the road to Damascus by Jesus it was 3 days later at the home of the prophet Ananias that he was filled with the Holy Spirit and Power and became Paul, Acts 9:   And with the disciples of Apollos in Acts 19, Paul’s first question was: “Have you received the Holy Spirit since ye believed?” And I also ask the same question of many who name the name of Christ today???  Have you received as yet the Power of God to be a witness for HIM?

PROMISED LAND,   Worth Considering,   6/29/20     From Ken<><
Today’s Scripture    (In my e-mails this morning from Texas.)
“…You will possess their land; I will give it to you as an inheritance, a land flowing with milk and honey…”  (Leviticus 20:24, NIV)

More than Enough
The Israelites had been in slavery for hundreds of years. That was the land of barely enough. They were just surviving, barely making it through. One day God brought them out of slavery and took them into the desert, the land of just enough. Their needs were supplied, but nothing extra. God eventually took them into the Promised Land, the land of more than enough. The food and supplies were plenteous. It’s called “the land flowing with milk and honey.” Flowing means it didn’t stop. Its abundance never ran out. That’s where God is taking you.

You may be in the land of barely enough or just enough right now. Don’t worry. God hasn’t forgotten about you. He is saying, “Those are seasons. Don’t put your stakes down. You’re passing through.” God has a Promised Land for you. He has a place of abundance, of more than enough, where it’s flowing with provision, not just one time, but you’ll continue to have plenty.

A Prayer for Today
Father, thank You that You are El Shaddai, the God of abundance. Thank You for the place I’m in now, but I’m not putting my stakes down. I believe that You are going to bring me into a life of overflow and the land of more than enough. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Ken’s Notes:
Reminds me of SOME wonderful old country songs,  lots of verses, listen to them all…. sing along…

“This World is Not My Home”

“Sweet By and By”

“I’ll Fly Away”

“When We All Get To Heaven”

“I Will Meet You in the Morning”

The Holy Bible is very clear that faith in the precious promises of God is what helps us to assimilate GOD’s DIVINE NATURE and to prepare our soul to make the jump to light speed when we die or go home in the Rapture.

So if you don’t really know why the Bible is the WORD OF GOD or what HIS Promises are then they will have absolutely no impact on the carnal earthly nature that you inherited from Grand Daddy Adam.  You were born short changed and you have grown up in a world full of demons and most have no idea that they have made the darkness into light and the world into a mess.  The darkness is considered to be light all around us.

So I believe the Bible
Because of it’s accuracy historically, cities mention are found.
Because of the scientific accuracy written long ago which we are just finding out.
Because of fulfilled prophesy
Because it is totally logical
Because it works for other and for me in correcting faults.
Because of the personal miracles I have see in healing and demonic deliverance.
Because of how I feel inside and the freedom that I have now.  HIS Truth set us FREE

So if you say that you believe the Bible and think that Jesus is your savior and your life and actions don’t support that life style, you are being deceived and are a hypocrite.(Actor.)  God’s kids are all in school learning how to be like Jesus.

If you say that you believe the Bible is true and don’t spend time finding the precious promises and applying them to your life you are kidding yourself.  You might not even be saved and think that you are.  You may think you have a “Get out of hell card” and find later that it is void. Isa.28  So lets look at a few promise scriptures:   “But we do [[a] strongly and earnestly] desire for each of you to show the same diligence and sincerity [all the way through] in realizing and enjoying the full assurance and development of [your] hope until the end,  12 In order that you may not grow disinterested and become [spiritual] sluggards, but imitators, behaving as do those who through faith ([b] by their leaning of the entire personality on God in Christ in absolute trust and confidence in His power, wisdom, and goodness) and by practice of patient endurance and waiting are [now] inheriting the promises Heb.6:11-12.  “For His divine power has bestowed upon us all things that [are requisite and suited] to life and godliness, through the [[a] full, personal] knowledge of Him Who called us by and to His own glory and excellence (virtue). 4 By means of these He has bestowed on us His precious and exceedingly great promises, so that through them you may escape [by flight] from the moral decay (rottenness and corruption) that is in the world because of covetousness (lust and greed), and become sharers (partakers) of the divine nature.  5 For this very reason, [b] adding your diligence [to the divine promises], employ every effort in [c] exercising your faith to develop virtue (excellence, resolution, Christian energy), and in [exercising] virtue [develop] knowledge (intelligence), 2 Pet.1:3-5    Want to find HIS Promises, Read John’s Gospel and letters and The Revelation. write them down, walk them out.

TRIALS & TESTING     “WORTH CONSIDERING”   6/26/20   From Ken<><
Today’s Scripture       (In my mailbox this morning from Texas.)
“…The women said to Naomi: “Praise be to the LORD, who this day has not left you without a guardian-redeemer. May he become famous throughout Israel! He will renew your life and sustain you in your old age…”  (Ruth 4:14–15, NIV)

Stay Close to the Right People

Naomi lost her husband in death, and then both her sons died as well. She was so discouraged that she didn’t think she could go on. She had been full of joy and sweetness, but now she was bitter. She even changed her name from Naomi, which means “my joy,” to Mara, which means “bitter.” She was saying, “Call me bitter.” But her friends refused and kept calling her Naomi. She was trying to stay in defeat, but they said, “No, you’re coming into victory,” and eventually she did.

If you have been through disappointments and loss, you need people around you who will remind you about who you are—not people who will get bitter with you and agree with the defeat. Stay close to people who will call you blessed and victorious. You want people in your life who will remind you that your best days are yet to come, that what was meant for your harm, God will use to your advantage.

A Prayer for Today

Father, thank You that You are able to take the most unfair situations in my life and turn them into positives. And thank You for the people in my life who call me victorious and blessed. Help me to stay close to those who remind me of who I am. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Ken’s Thoughts,
It has not been an easy journey for me to come to the place of understanding that GOD never tempts us or tests us for HIS benefits but allows lucifer to test us as HE sees the test will ultimately give us more freedom, though painful,  in HIS truth.   Of course I have been very hard headed soul  and learned mostly through pain by experience.  Learning by faith would have been much less painful. But out Loving Creator has endowed us we a totally free will which HE will not manipulate.  Your soul, is your soul to do with as you will.  But your soul is eternal.     

James, who grew up with Christ Jesus is very clear on the subject..  
“Blessed (happy, [c] to be envied) is the man who is patient under trial and stands up under temptation, for when he has stood the test and been approved, he will receive [the victor’s] crown of life which God has promised to those who love Him.   13 Let no one say when he is tempted, I am tempted from God; for God is incapable of being tempted by [what is] evil and He Himself tempts no one.  14 But every person is tempted when he is drawn away, enticed and baited by his own evil desire (lust, passions).  15 Then the evil desire, when it has conceived, gives birth to sin, and sin, when it is fully matured, brings forth death.  16 Do not be misled, my beloved brethren.  17 Every good gift and every perfect ([d]free, large, full) gift is from above; it comes down from the Father of all [that gives] light, in [the shining of] Whom there can be no variation [rising or setting] or shadow cast by His turning [as in an eclipse].  18 And it was of His own [free] will that He gave us birth [as sons] by [His] Word of Truth, so that we should be a kind of firstfruits of His creatures [a sample of what He created to be consecrated to Himself].  James 1:12-18.   So it is never the fault of GOD when we go through deep dark painful waters, it is of our doing.  Job’s 42 chapters (oldest Bible manuscript) is all about how Job had great fear concerning his children, wealth and health.  God allowe lucifer to strip him bare.  And when he came to himself he realized the necked he came into the world and that he would leave the same way, Praise be the name of the LORD.  And then God more than replaced everything but then it was without any fear and could be fully enjoyed.  Interesting thing for me was that he was not fearful about his wife, so nothing happened to her.  Even though she was part of the problem.  

We are born into a perverted world in total rebellion against God.  But in that same world God has saturated it with HIS TRUTH.  Subject to us taking the time to listen and allowing  HIS TRUTH to impact our lives.   If we love Adam\’s world, we will experience an eternal separation from our Creator, our choice..  If we seek out God’s Kingdom in Christ Jesus and HIS Loving Truth and Light we will live in that love and truth for eternity.

And it is not as though I am outside looking in.  Actually, even at my age, evan as Paul commented, I am still learning to die to Adam’s world every day and be alive in the Jesus world.   In getting to be an old fossil does make the process of dying to this world much more important.  I am alive only by God’s grace already.   In looking for another set of wheels for my wife yesterday,   I ran across a really beautiful little Benz convertibles, my color and all, low milage, good price….  But my feet started to freeze up and cramp on me on the way home from Kailua Kona, yesterday in just 20 miles.   So really a very dumb temptation but still there after all of this time.  And to say nothing about riding a big Harley cycle at my near 88.  But God’s Truth is getting more and more powerful in my life as I write to you.  And never a dull moment.    “For the kingdom of God consists of and is based on not talk but power ([b] moral power and excellence of soul)”. 1 Cor.4:20.  “For the time being no discipline brings joy, but seems grievous and painful; but afterwards it yields a peaceable fruit of righteousness to those who have been trained by it [a harvest of fruit which consists in righteousness—in conformity to God’s will in purpose, thought, and action, resulting in right living and right standing with God]. “ Heb. 12:11.   “And what this love consists in is this: that we live and walk in accordance with and guided by His commandments (His orders, ordinances, precepts, teaching). This is the commandment, as you have heard from the beginning, that you continue to walk in love [guided by it and following it]. “ 1 John 1:6.  “Who were chosen and foreknown by God the Father and consecrated (sanctified, made holy) by the Spirit to be obedient to Jesus Christ (the Messiah) and to be sprinkled with [His] blood: May grace (spiritual blessing) and peace be given you in increasing abundance [that spiritual peace to be realized in and through Christ, freedom from fears, agitating passions, and moral conflicts]. 1 Pet.1:2 “And He said to them, Guard yourselves and keep free from all covetousness (the immoderate desire for wealth, the greedy longing to have more); for a man’s life does not consist in and is not derived from possessing [a] overflowing abundance or that which is [b] over and above his needs.” Luke 12:15.  This is good TRUTH from the Word of God, don’t try to leave home without it….

LIFE IN ABUNDANCE,    “WORTH CONSIDERING,   6/25/20     From   Ken<><

Today’s Scripture
“…But you, LORD, sit enthroned forever; your renown endures through all generations. You will arise and have compassion on Zion, for it is time to show favor to her; the appointed time has come…” (Psalm 102:12–13, NIV)

Your Set Time
In the first eleven verses of Psalm 102, the psalmist goes into great detail listing all his troubles, telling how miserable he is. Just when you think he’s ready to give up, he wrote today’s Scripture. In the midst of his sad song, he recognized that God was still on the throne, and he knew there was a set time for favor in his future. God was saying to His people, “Don’t worry, things are about to change. You’ve come into your set time of favor. I will arise and have compassion.” In your set time of favor, God will step in against your enemies and scatter them. When He arises, sickness will be defeated, addictions will be broken, and lack, poverty, and struggle will come to an end. He’s going before you clearing the path where you couldn’t go before, pushing back the forces of darkness. The enemies you’ve seen in the past you will see no more. It’s your set time for freedom, for wholeness.

A Prayer for Today
Father, thank You that You are enthroned forever, and You have set this time of favor for me. Thank You that You are giving me power to do what I couldn’t do. I believe You are fighting my battles, preparing the way for me to step up to the next level. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Ken’s Thoughts,
So here it seems that the Palmist is sharing God’s time of ultimate compassion on Zion.  One of the small mountains on where Jerusalem is established..  Also to mean the Children of Israel.  So for me this is a prophesy concerning the 1,000 year millennium Kingdom of Christ Jesus on Earth after the Seven Years of the Great Tribulation.  Not really a personal prophesy at all.  And it is in being careful about context that helps us really understand the Holy Bible for faith, practice and doctrine.  We are taught by the Holy Bible to not get caught up in what others say that the Bible says.   Our libraries and Churches today are filled with books and traditions that make the Truth of God, ineffective and powerless.  We tend to try to support our experience in the pride of believing we are OK as we are before God.  He does accept and love us as the children of Adam but then also has a vision for us for our conversion to step up to the plate of faith and become like Jesus.  John 3:14-18.

.”Where there is no vision the people perish” [Proverbs 29:18]. Has the Lord given you a vision? Has He given you an assignment to accomplish? Now is the time to find and lay hold of HIS vision for you and to fulfill your calling. It may not happen as you planned or expected…but be confident of this fact…that your work in the Lord is not in vain as guided by the Holy Spirit!

So are we to settle for what the Lord has already accomplished?  It’s always nice to be reminded of how God has already used us – but we must never lose sight of what He still wants to do with us in the future, and how He may want to build upon what He has already done in the past. So renew your vision of His will in humility and obedience and faith  for your life, for your future, – and walk it out…  God does have a plan and a purpose for our creation, each and every one of us.  And there is Joy and fulfillment in the vision of God.   We have been invited to be Jr. Partners with our Creator in the Building of the Kingdom of God.  First we are experiencing the confusion and chaos of Adam’s pride and rebellion and learning how to gain the victory over our carnal nature that we inherited from Adam.  Only with us instead of having a garden ful of good stuff to eat with one NO! Tree.  Adam has made the world full of NO! Trees and now we have only one YES! Tree,   The Cross of Christ Jesus.  In Adam the whole human race was sold into sin but in Christ Jesus we are all invited to learn to walk in Christ Jesus as LORD and gain the victory over sin.  Jesus taught it this way:

“ I am the Bread of Life [that gives life—the Living Bread].  49 Your forefathers ate the manna in the wilderness, and [yet] they died.  50 [But] this is the Bread that comes down from heaven, so that [any]one may eat of it and never die.  51 I [Myself] am this Living Bread that came down from heaven. If anyone eats of this Bread, he will live forever; and also the Bread that I shall give for the life of the world is My flesh (body).  52 Then the Jews angrily contended with one another, saying, How is He able to give us His flesh to eat?  53 And Jesus said to them, I assure you, most solemnly I tell you, you cannot have any life in you unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood [unless you appropriate His life and the saving merit of His blood]. 54 He who feeds on My flesh and drinks My blood has (possesses now) eternal life, and I will raise him up [from the dead] on the last day.55 For My flesh is true and genuine food, and My blood is true and genuine drink.  56 He who feeds on My flesh and drinks My blood dwells continually in Me, and I [in like manner dwell continually] in him.  57 Just as the living Father sent Me and I live by (through, because of) the Father, even so whoever continues to feed on Me [whoever takes Me for his food and is nourished by Me] shall [in his turn] live through and because of Me.  58 This is the Bread that came down from heaven. It is not like the manna which our forefathers ate, and yet died; he who takes this Bread for his food shall live forever.  John 6:48-58.    “Now on the final and most important day of the Feast, Jesus stood, and He cried in a loud voice, If any man is thirsty, let him come to Me and drink!  38 He who believes in Me [who cleaves to and trusts in and relies on Me] as the Scripture has said, From his innermost being shall flow [continuously] springs and rivers of living water.  39 But He was speaking here of the Spirit, Whom those who believed (trusted, had faith) in Him were afterward to receive. For the [Holy] Spirit had not yet been given, because Jesus was not yet glorified (raised to honor). “ Jn. 7:37-39.    “Now as they were eating, Jesus took bread and, [b] praising God, gave thanks and asked Him to bless it to their use, and when He had broken it, He gave it to the disciples and said, Take, eat; this is My body.  27 And He took a cup, and when He had given thanks, He gave it to them, saying, Drink of it, all of you;  28 For this is My blood of the new covenant, which [[c] ratifies the agreement and] is [d] being poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins.” Matt. 26:26-28

So due to Adam’s ingesting the forbidden fruit in the Garden with death following.  We now need to ingest Christ Jesus to have that eternal life with GOD restored.  This means to totally put on Christ Jesus, To become like HIM in all that we do and all that we say.  NO HYPOCRISY !
Obviously we need GOD’S Loving Grace and a very strong Bible based faith to do this.

Yours, in HIS great love and wonderful grace and mercy,   Ken<><

Rush Notes:   (Personally, I feel, He has a good point to make.)    “Worth Considering” 
Americans are living through uncertain times.  Many are wondering what the end game is.  And they got a terrible clue when Rush Limbaugh dropped this big bombshell about what is to happen next.  When the protests erupted after four Minneapolis police officers allegedly murdered George Floyd, many Americans assumed the demonstrators were in the streets demanding change in police tactics.  But as the protests turned to riots and the demonstrations dragged on for weeks, many in the public wondered what the end goal of the Black Lives Matter political movement really was.

A caller asked Rush Limbaugh if America was headed for an implosion due to domestic political unrest fomented by the left.  Limbaugh admitted that may be a possibility, but he differed on the cause.  In his telling, Limbaugh explained that Black Lives Matter and other leftist agitators were not leading a political rebellion, but instead waging a cultural revolution.  “Possibly, but I don’t think it’s imminent. I think it looks like it is. The reason I don’t think it’s gonna happen is because what we’re up against is not really a political revolution. I know this is gonna be like a fine-line differentiation. We’re up against a cultural revolution here. And these things all end because they eat each other. They end up subsuming themselves. Now, not to say that they’re not gonna have a long-lasting impact on things, but the longer they go on, the more people they repulse,”

The caller added that when he was active duty military, he thought the biggest threat America faced was from a foreign enemy.  But now the caller realized the greatest danger posed to the nation came from a radicalized political left trying to tear the nation apart.  Rush agreed completely and noted the communist influence on the Black Lives Matter movement.  “Well, you’re right. That is the primary — but, you know, this falling from within is still external. It’s all the result of communist influence — Russia, Soviet Union, ChiCom. I mean, that’s where all this is. We’re up against communism. You can call it Black Lives Matter. You can call it whatever some of their favorite little pet names of their organizations are, Occupy Wall Street. We are up against communism. We’re up against Marxist theory that we are seeing be implemented and approved of and sponsored by a political party, the Democrat Party,” Limbaugh added.  And there are elements of Marxist philosophy embedded in the Black Lives Matter political movement.  Like the communists, Black Lives Matter openly states its goal is to “disrupt” the traditional nuclear family.  Black Lives Matter also seeks to impose massive wealth redistribution schemes by forcing the government to pay reparations for slavery.  In George Orwell’s “1984,” “the Party” enforced discipline by turning children into the “League of Junior Spies” to rat out their parents for supposed “thought crime.”  Learn more about Revenue Stripe…   Americans are now seeing videos go viral on social media of children denouncing their parents for not sufficiently supporting the Black Lives Matter movement.  And in 1975 when the Khmer Rouge took over Cambodia, they imposed a “year zero” calendar by erasing all history that came before their murderous government seized power.  A similar campaign is being waged in America as Black Lives Matter activists first demanded the removal of Confederate monuments and have now moved on to tearing down statues of Francis Scott Key, Ulysses S. Grant, George Washington and Thomas Jefferson.  Many Americans are starting to realize that Black Lives Matter is not out to just “reform the police.”  They are seeking a wholesale overthrow of the American culture and way of life and replacing it with a tyrannical left-wing alternative.  If you want American Patriot Daily to keep you up to date on any new developments in this ongoing story and the rest of the breaking news in politics, please bookmark our site, consider making us your homepage and forward our content with your friends on social media and email.

Don’t place God in a box — but recognize that God is calling you to live outside the box! Your life before you were born again was a “mortal” life, but having crossed over, you’re now called to live a supernatural life! So live it — because your life is an inheritance directly from your Heavenly Father!  While we live in these mortal bodies, we’re called to do extraordinary things in this life! We have a Spiritual Father sitting on the throne who wants to give us wisdom from above. He wants to give us “peace that passes all understanding.” And He’s calling us to live a life outside this natural realm — a life worthy of a “King and a Priest” of the Most High.

An infectious diseases specialist in Italy has said he believes the COVID-19 virus has weakened and may disappear by itself without a vaccine, Fox News reported Monday. Dr Matteo Bassetti, head of the infectious diseases clinic at San Martino hospital in Genoa, said the virus weakening may be caused by genetic mutations resulting from lockdown and social distancing measures.
A new survey of undergraduate college students found that 94% of Democrat responders support defunding of police (i.e. cutting police budgets to fund other community resources) while only 13% of Republican students do, The College Fix reported. The poll also found that a majority of Democrat responders believe rioting and looting are legitimate forms of protest against racial injustice and police brutality while almost all Republican responders believe they are not.  An Iranian Christian rights activist who was jailed for protesting against Iran’s Islamic government says more than a dozen Christians remain behind bars in the country’s overcrowded prisons.  Israel Defense Forces Chief of Staff Aviv Kohavi on Sunday said Iran is now the most dangerous country in the Middle East, not just because of its nuclear program, but also through its conventional weapons and support for terror activities against Israel.

TESTING,      “WORTH CONSIDERING”   6/23/20       From Ken<>< in Kealia, Hawaii

Today’s Scripture    (Across my desk today from Texas.)
“For you know that when your faith is tested, your endurance has a chance to grow.”  James.1:3

When God is Silent
Sometimes when we’re being tested by discouragement, it seems God is silent. We pray and don’t hear anything. We read the Scripture and still come away feeling as though God is a million miles away. It’s easy to think something must be wrong. But remember, this is a test. You have to pass the test of being faithful where you are. Keep stretching, praying, and believing. The next step is coming—an increase step, a favor step, a healing step, a breakthrough step.  When God is silent, don’t assume He’s left you or is mad at you. He is right there with you during the test. His silence is a sign that He has great confidence in you and He has prepared you, and now He is watching to see if you have learned. He knows you will come through the test victoriously or He would not have permitted you to be tested. Keep being your best with what you have.

A Prayer for Today
Father, thank You for the good plan You have for my life. Even when I don’t understand things, I choose to put my hope and trust in You. Help me to live in Your joy and pass the discouragement test when You seem to be silent. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Ken’s Thoughts,
This teaching reminded me of the ultimate testing for Christ Jesus when death was at the door and HE cried out “Father, Father!! Why have you left me alone???”  We often think of Jesus as some kind of a super man and not like us at all.  But in every way HE was tested as we are, yet without sin.  In fact in Hebrews it mentions that HE even learned obedience by the things (temptations) that HE suffered.  Now how can any one learn obedience through suffering.  Well I took that to the LORD and what I felt came back is: “Every time you have victory in being obedient you learn to be more obedient.  So in Jesus deciding very young to be obedient even when suffering through doing that which was right but was uncomfortable to do, it made him stronger.  Of course the ultimate in HIS obedience was in HIS prayer before being bound on the Mount of Olives.  And HE prayed, “And going a little farther, He threw Himself upon the ground on His face and prayed saying, My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass away from Me; nevertheless, not what I will [not what I desire], but as You will and desire.”  Matt. 26:39  

So this brings up an interesting question.   How is your learning obedience through suffering going?  Of course the Holy Spirit is our instructor and will guide us through the Word of God as to the Commandments of Christ Jesus for serious testing.  The Holy Spirit has been busy setting up Godly authority from the cradle to the grave.  But then we have been making adjustments in order to avoid the intrusion of Godly Authority and know very little concerning real Godly authority in our theater churches today.  The little church across the street from us told me very carefully that they used a “progressive” interpretation of the Bible.   In other words they used scissors for the parts of the Bible that they disagreed with.  And as a result of private or personal interpretation of Holy Scripture today we see very little of the confirming power of the Holy Spirit as per Paul’s Prophesy to Timothy, 1 Tim.3 and concerning our Laodicean Church of today as noted in Prophesy by Christ Jesus in Rev.3:12-22 where Jesus is knocking on the outside of the door to be invited into HIS own church.   The theater and early Roman church tradition infusion of traditions have made the Word of God mostly ineffective in most of our traditions of today.  And neither do we find the Book of Acts continuing today.  Seems like obedience testing has been totally replaced with a blanket of we are OK as we are.  After all God is Love.  So let’s just love one another and say good things and be polite and not cause any ripples or testing.  Actually Jesus was very clear, “No prunning, No fruit.”  No dying to this world, no gathering to the Kingdom. “ I write to you, fathers, because you have come to know (recognize, be conscious of, and understand) Him Who [has existed] from the beginning. I write to you, young men, because you are strong and vigorous, and the Word of God is [always] abiding in you (in your hearts), and you have been victorious over the wicked one.  15 Do not love or cherish the world or the things that are in the world. If anyone loves the world, love for the Father is not in him.  16 For all that is in the world—the lust of the flesh [craving for sensual gratification] and the lust of the eyes [greedy longings of the mind] and the pride of life [assurance in one’s own resources or in the stability of earthly things]—these do not come from the Father but are from the world [itself].” 1 Jn.2:14-16.

Yours, in HIS great love and wonderful grace and mercy,   Ken<><

Jesus came in love to save us, we are also called in HIM to share HIS message.
John 17:20-26

There is but one universal and apostolic church with Christ Jesus as LORD
All who truly Love, Honor and Obey HIM will live with HIM for eternity.

Learning Ground:
It was that the children who were born in Israel and went to school who learned Hebrew first — and since, of course, the adults didn’t know Hebrew, it was the children who taught their parents.  There is a profound example in Ben-Yehuda’s inspiring act of faith — for as Yeshua said, “Unless you are changed and become like little children you cannot enter the Kingdom of Heaven.” If you want to speak the language of Heaven, you must learn it as a child would learn! Little children are open, receptive, hungry to learn, believing, humble, and lighthearted. According to Yeshua (Jesus), these qualities are necessary for entry into our Lord’s realm.

Iceland’s meteorological service IMO said Monday that 3,000 tremors had been registered on the northern coast of the country.   The sunny, blue skies of the Caribbean were shrouded in dust on Monday as a dense plume of Saharan dust that experts say hasn’t been seen in half a century moved into the region as it makes its way towards the U.S.  Praying and marching against racism Friday, thousands of Christians took part in the “March on Atlanta” event organized by One Race Movement, a Christian coalition aiming to “displace the spirit of racism and release racial reconciliation,” The Christian Post reported. Participants also prayed in support of the Atlanta Police Department which is reeling from nationwide rage against law enforcement following the police killings of George Floyd in Minneapolis and Rayshard Brooks in Atlanta itself.  The streets of Minneapolis where George Floyd was killed are being used by God to save those searching for hope and healing.  (“But then Law came in, [only] to expand and increase the trespass [making it more apparent and exciting opposition]. But where sin increased and abounded, grace (God’s unmerited favor) has surpassed it and increased the more and super abounded,…” Rom.5:20)
