REMODELING    “WORTH CONSIDERING”     10/13/20       From Ken Smith<><

Today’s Scripture          (Across my desk this morning from a church in Texas.)
So give yourselves humbly to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you.  James 4:7
Live Guilt-Free
Today’s Scripture tells us to resist the enemy. To resist means to not agree with what he’s telling you, but rather to believe what God says about you. When you hear him whisper, “You’re all washed up. You’ve made too many mistakes,” the way you resist it is to answer, “No, thanks. God’s mercy is bigger than any mistake. My best days are still in front of me.” Don’t assist the enemy; resist him. When he tells you, “You don’t deserve to be blessed. Look what you’ve done,” resist him by declaring,” I am the righteousness of God. I am forgiven. I am redeemed.” When the enemy says, “Well, you blew it. You knew better, and now you’re guilty,” tell him, “There is no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. I asked God for forgiveness, and He not only forgave me, but He doesn’t remember it. I’m going to live guilt-free, confidently, securely, holy, blamelessly, righteously, and honorably in Jesus’ Name.”
A Prayer For Today
“Father, thank You that when the accuser tries to dump a load of guilt on me, I can say with authority, ‘Condemnation is not acceptable here. Jesus paid the price.’ I am far from perfect, but I will not drag yesterday’s failures into today. I am forgiven. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”

Ken’s Comments:
Several things come to mind about this as a learning curve.   First Off, a good in depth knowledge of what God says is right and wrong is needed.   As the heart is deceitfully wicked and has to be retrained from the truth of this world of Adam to the truth of the Word of God.  It is God’s Truth that sets us free.   Adam’s truth brings us into bondage.  We have all grown up with Adam who elected to be a disciple of lucifer and suffered a lot of pain and bondage’s.  It takes about 30 time in agreeing seriously with the Truth of God before the heart (ed, sub-conscious) even begins to think you are serious about a change in direction.  Some times even months go by before the heart demonstrates a change of a major direction in the way of living.“As a man thinks in his heart so is he.”  “Out of the heart proceed the issues of life.”  How to put on the heart of Christ Jesus?

Quick story about this, In the Army, I could out cuss the best.  Fully ½ of my vocabulary was unfit for my mother’s dinner table.   So when I got saved in 1955 I knew it was wrong for a Christian to talk that way so did the best I could with eating my words sometimes.  But they were still etched down deep in my mind and heart.   Then in 1968 I was gifted with the Baptism of the Holy Spirit and a new dimension of power came over me.  One day later I was running to get something done on my little farm in Pleasant Hill, Or. and I miss-gaged gaged the tread on my T340 dozer and hit the track dead on in the center of my right knee cap.  Boy!!! did that hurt as I fell to the ground and I let out a very Loud yell!!! “Praise The LORD,” “Thank you Jesus” !!!!  and I stopped in shock,  and the pain quickly left with no damage at all.  But my sponge got squeezed and out came was what was inside and it really shocked me.  I had no idea of how the Holy Spirit managed to do that, but HE did and I was free of profanity.   So all of those gatherings around God’s Word that I went to in the late 60s’ revivals had  totally changed my heart.  I was really experiencing being a new man in Christ Jesus.  Of course that was just the beginning of my many needed changes.   And at 88 I am still in the Holy Spirit’s  class room of change every day.   And I am sure, not the best student.

Second thought is our free will.   To stop and ask ourselves, “What would Jesus do” in a given decision.  What habits are good and what are not.   It takes about a month to change a habit.  So a lots of times we go for the darkness without even thinking about it.  James 3 talks about our tongue as being a world of sin.  And if we learn to control our tongue, the rest is easy.  I do not have the space here to copy James 3 for you so please commit to reading James 3 in the Amplified

Becoming in the Image and Likeness of God in Christ Jesus is a life journey.  Once you make Christ Jesus really your LORD then the Holy Spirit begins the process of, with your permission, changing you from being a child of Adam into a child of God.  Jesus was and is and will ever be the 1st born of this new family of God.   HE is the 1st born of many brethren.  You have been invited to join the family of God ,  if you want to.  But it will mean change, repentance.  Many things of this world will need to be pruned off and much of God will replace what has been removed.  We purchased a very distressed house 3 yrs. ago.  Had to even take out the cabinets, doors and window and some walls and all the kitchen and bath fixtures and replace them.  Now the house Is a home for us.  God want to move into your distressed house and make it HIS home.  But it is totally up to you and your comfort zone.  But if HE moves in, expect a complete remodeling and enjoy it.  It will make you fit for living in HIS new eternal Home of Love, Peace and Righteousness for eternity.  This whole world is up for a total remodeling very soon anyway.  Can only keep what the Holy Spirit cleans up as well.  And if you OK the total remodel, you even get the gift of a new eternal body to live in.

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

FAITH & TROUBLE,      “WORTH   CONSIDERING”    10/12/20     From Ken<><

Today’s Scripture    (Across my desk this morning from a church in Texas.)
“Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me.”  (John 14:1, NKJV)
Negative Chatter
With social media, so many people can hide behind being anonymous and say hurtful, critical things to try to make you feel small, unattractive, and not good enough. At times it may seem as though there’s a campaign against someone, but it’s usually just a handful of bullies, haters, and envious people. You can’t stop that from coming, but you can ignore it. Let it bounce right off you.   The trick of the enemy is to try to deceive you into thinking about it all the time, and then it contaminates your life. Don’t let the poison in. Don’t even bother to read it when it gets negative. Don’t call a friend and ask them what someone might be saying about you. Don’t let your heart be troubled; let God take care of it. You don’t have to defend yourself. God is your vindicator. Just run your race. Stay focused on moving forward, and He will take care of the rest.
A Prayer For Today
“Father, thank You that You are my vindicator, and  You will protect my reputation as I keep on honoring You. Help me to let any negative chatter bounce off me and not read it or listen to it. I believe that You will handle it Your way. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
Ken’s Comments:
Trouble is every where on planet earth like our new CCP virus.   Unseen and like glue trouble is everywhere.  Jesus even noted that HIS words would be adding to the problem.  In Matt.10:32 HE said this, “Therefore, everyone who acknowledges Me before men and confesses Me [[k] out of a state of oneness with Me], I will also acknowledge him before My Father Who is in heaven and [l] confess [that I am abiding in] him.  But whoever denies and disowns Me before men, I also will deny and disown him before My Father Who is in heaven.  34 Do not think that I have come to bring peace upon the earth; I have not come to bring peace, but a sword.  35 For I have come to part asunder a man from his father, and a daughter from her mother, and a [m] newly married wife from her mother-in-law—  36 And a man’s foes will be they of his own household.  37 He who loves [and [n] takes more pleasure in] father or mother more than [in] Me is not worthy of Me; and he who loves [and takes more pleasure in] son or daughter more than [in] Me is not worthy of Me;  38 And he who does not take up his cross and follow Me [[o] cleave steadfastly to Me, conforming wholly to My example in living and, if need be, in dying also] is not worthy of Me.  39 Whoever finds his [[p] lower] life will lose it [ the higher life ], and whoever loses his [lower] life on My account will find it [the higher life].  40 He who receives and welcomes and accepts you receives and welcomes and accepts Me, and he who receives and welcomes and accepts Me receives and welcomes and accepts Him Who sent Me.  41 He who receives and welcomes and accepts a prophet because he is a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward, and he who receives and welcomes and accepts a righteous man because he is a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward.”  And this is so very true if we truly acknowledge HIM, there is going to be trouble.  

Sunday, yesterday at the Farmers Market the first stand that I came to was selling plants.  I was looking for some lace leaf bamboo.  So I ask the lady and she seemed knowledgeable but did not have any.  So I pulled out one of my tracts and wrote my name and phone number on it and ask her to call me if she found it again.  She froze, and said, “You are not voting for Trump are you.  I told here I really don’t think the election is about Trump but about the type of government.  We are either voting for a Constitutional Govt. or a Socialist kind of Govt.  She went into a rage.  I had to walk away…  Obviously she had drunk the Koolaid.  Then for the rest of my walk through the Mkt. I was a little more hesitant in pulling out my tracts.  It was a New age War Zone that I was not really prepped for.  I have only had 3 people turn down my “LIGHT” tract over many years now and one was yesterday, that is out of 3,000 tracts that I have had printed for about  .10 cents each with only scriptures on light.

And where ever we go where Jesus is the core expression of our life, we are going to be in trouble with the world.  But with Jesus I get to spend eternity with my Creator and have peace.  But with the world, only trouble and eternal darkness now and  forever.  Did come home with some really big mangoes and nice papayas…   But please do a word study on World with Bible Gateway.   James puts it this way: “ [Or] you do ask [God for them] and yet fail to receive, because you ask with wrong purpose and evil, selfish motives. Your intention is [when you get what you desire] to spend it in sensual pleasures.  4 You [are like] unfaithful wives [having illicit love affairs with the world and breaking your marriage vow to God]! Do you not know that being the world’s friend is being God’s enemy?   So whoever chooses to be a friend of the world takes his stand as an enemy of God.  5 Or do you suppose that the Scripture is speaking to no purpose that says, The Spirit Whom He has caused to dwell in us yearns over us and He yearns for the Spirit [to be welcome] with a jealous love?  James 4:3-5   And Apostle Peter puts it this way: “Once you were not a people [at all], but now you are God’s people; once you were unpitied, but now you are pitied and have received mercy.  11 Beloved, I implore you as aliens and strangers and exiles [in this world] to abstain from the sensual urges (the evil desires, the passions of the flesh, your lower nature) that wage war against the soul.  12 Conduct yourselves properly (honorably, righteously) among the Gentiles, so that, although they may slander you as evildoers, [yet] they may by witnessing your good deeds [come to] glorify God in the day of inspection [ [a] when God shall look upon you wanderers as a pastor or shepherd looks over his flock].

COMPLETE IN HIM,    “WORTH CONSIDERING”   10/9/20,   From Ken<><

Today’s Scripture       (Across my desk this morning from a church in Texas.)
“When the Lord brings you into the Promised Land, as he soon will, he will destroy the following seven nations, all greater and mightier than you are.”
(Deuteronomy 7:1, TLB)
You’re Not on Your Own
God was about to take the Israelites into the Promised Land, but there were seven nations in their path that were bigger, stronger, and more powerful than the Israelites. Moses didn’t know what they were going to do. In the natural they could never defeat them. But God told them, “You don’t have to fight this in your own strength. I’m going to go before you and clear the path. I’m going to defeat your enemies so all you have to do is walk in and take the land.”  We all face situations where the odds are against us. It’s easy to think, This sickness…this debt…this addiction…these people coming against me are much more powerful. Don’t worry. God is going before you right now clearing the path. He’s making things happen that you couldn’t make happen. On your own you may be outnumbered, but you’re not on your own. The God who controls the universe says He will take care of your enemies.
A Prayer For Today
“Father, thank You that You’re defeating my enemies, and You’re bringing me into my Promised Land. Thank You that You’re going before me right now and clearing the path and doing what I cannot do on my own. I believe that the victory is on the way. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
Ken’s Thoughts:
Under the Law, Israel, over the years in Egypt,  become seriously in unity in the slavery of the bondage.  They had, under the lash, learned obedience and humility.  So when Moses came along as a deliverer, a type of Jesus, and even Moses gave a prophesy to that effect to watch for Jesus.  Deuteronomy 18:15,   ““The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among you, from your brothers—it is to him you shall listen.”  Israel had to wait for about 1443 years for it to happen, but happen it did.  Took 14 generations but no one has ever pinned down exactly what a generation was or had been in the past.  Now we, as Christians are waiting for His return.   His return for His church and His second advent to set up HIS Kingdom of a 1,000 years.  And like the 10 virgins waiting it is about 50/50.   Half of the Church may be full of faith and light and ready to go and have Holy Spirit oil in their bright lamps..   But then the other half has money their money in their pockets just in case He does not show.   They could have had the oil as did the others but they were cool and progressive.   And for a while had lit lamps, oil and money.  And probably thought the 100 per-centers were dumb to have all their money riding on this single event.  It did not seem possible that the Bridegroom would leave them stranded just because of a little oil, but HE did.

We have been invited into the promised land on the condition that we would be looking forward to living in the Promised Land as a primary purpose of our lives.   That not even a mother, sister or brother or wife would be able to take the place of prior importance to The Lord Jesus.  That every thing that we did would need to have that promises of God in our heart and the very center of our actions.   That we would not live by bread alone but by every word that comes from God..   In the past few days I have been turned down twice by people claiming to be Christian who had very little attraction to the Word of God in humility or obedience.  Paul puts it this way.  “ And how from your childhood you have had a knowledge of and been acquainted with the sacred Writings, which are able to instruct you and give you the understanding for salvation which comes through faith in Christ Jesus [through the [a] leaning of the entire human personality on God in Christ Jesus in absolute trust and confidence in His power, wisdom, and goodness].  16 Every Scripture is God-breathed (given by His inspiration) and profitable for instruction, for reproof and conviction of sin, for correction of error and discipline in obedience, [and] for training in righteousness (in holy living, in conformity to God’s will in thought, purpose, and action),  17 So that the man of God may be complete and proficient, well fitted and thoroughly equipped for every good work, 2 Tim.3:15-17.   And Jesus put it this way.  ”I have told you these things, that My joy and delight may be in you, and that your joy and gladness may be of full measure and complete and overflowing. John 15:11.  So feeling incomplete?  Perhaps Jesus is not in the center of your life as LORD?  Perhaps you have been side tract by the enemy with lust and stuff as is most of the world.  Of a week of 168 hours, how many hours do you put into His and your Kingdom of eternity.  You only get to keep what you send ahead.  1 Cor.3:11-15.   (This scripture gave me faith for His Kingdom in 1955. ) You might want to site down and check your oil level?  Rev.3:12-31.

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

Isaiah 12:2-3 Behold, God is my salvation (Yeshua in Hebrew), I will trust and not be afraid; ‘For the LORD JEHOVAH, is my strength and song; He also has become my salvation (Yeshua). Therefore with joy you will draw water from the springs of salvation (Yeshua).
John 7:37-38 On the last day, the great day of the feast, Yeshua (Jesus) stood and cried out, saying, “If any man thirsts, let him come to Me, and drink. He who believes in Me, as the Scripture has said, “out of his belly shall flow rivers of living water.”

Today’s Scripture    ( Across my desk this morning from a church in Texas.)
Whoever has no rule over his own spirit is like a city broken down, without walls.  Prov.25:28.
Build Up the Walls
When you let your feelings control you—anger, impatience, lust, a negative attitude—your walls of defense are down. The enemy can come in and run your life. God has given us self-control. Quit saying, “I can’t stop it. It’s too hard.” You have the ability, but self-control is like a muscle—if you never discipline yourself to walk away when you feel like taking the easy way out, then your self-control muscle is very weak. You have to start exercising it by saying no to your flesh. You have a destiny to fulfill. But as long as you are controlled by these ordinary impulses, God can’t release the amazing things He has in store for your future. Spiritual maturity has nothing to do with how many years you’ve been in church or how long you’ve known the Lord. It has everything to do with what kind of fruit you are displaying. Are you ruling over your emotions?
A Prayer For Today
“Father, thank You that one of the fruit of the Spirit working in me is self-control. Thank You that I don’t have to be a slave to feelings that have tried to control me for years. I believe that as I say no to the flesh, I will reach my highest potential. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
Ken’s Thoughts:
Self-Control for me is strongly attached to Free-Will.  And the Bible teaches us that if we have a lack of vision, we will not make it to light speed with God.  So in the Bible, God, through HIS prophets in both the Old and New Testament has set Solid Promises in place to give us an over view vision from HIS eternal dimension and perspective..

Through the prophets and apostles HE confirms to us that our dimension of time is only temporary.  That we have a very short time in this dimension to decide for disobedience or obedience in the free exercise of our free-will.   That we are here to lean how to use our free-will in a positive and a righteous manner.  That there will be eternal consequences as to our choices made in time.  And that those choices will be eternal.   So what are some of God’s plans for us if we come into love, faith, humility and obedience to HIM.

First off Jesus shared with us, 2,000 years ago, that HE was going to build an eternal house for us and even told us how big it would be: 1,500 miles by 1,500 miles by 1,500 miles high.  He talked about clear as glass,  gold being used for the streets.  He shared that we were to become HIS “Rod of Iron” as kings, priests and ambassadors in ruling over the earth in an Eden in peace for a thousand year.  He shared that by faith He would save us and forgive and empower us and then every thing that we did because of our Love for Him He was going to reward us for, even a cup of water given because of our obedience and love for HIM.  He shared that we, as HIS Church-Bride-Body would also be used to boot lucifer and his minions out of the heavens.  He shared about having a big wedding feast with us and blessing us and gifting us for what we did for HIM here on earth in time.  That if we would share HIS truth, HIS word of freedom that we could join with HIM in the harvest of eternal souls for HIS Kingdom.  He also promised to be with us in the Holy Spirit though our time of testing and for eternity.  And that HE would give us supernatural Grace to help us overcome the world as HE overcame the world.  He even challenged us that we could be like HIM and learn to do what HE did.  That if we found HIS commandments and kept them that HE would honor us before HIS Heavenly Father the ultimate source of all that is created in the universe.  That if we would dig into HIS word and accept HIS promises as being True and Faithful that HE would even allow us to grow up into being like HIM for all eternity.  That HIS vision was to create a people who are like HIM with free-will that have chosen to be righteous and creative in all thing to the point of never changing.  And  to ultimately become HIS eternal family and a joint heir with HIM in all that has been created in the universe.

So the big challenge for us is to come to be so sure of HIS promises that we are willing to become centered in Christ Jesus as our LORD.  That HIS promises are a better choice than to live out our lives simple being self-centered.  All babies start off with the Adamic nature of being self-centered.  And as we get older we learn to control the me, mine nature to some extent.  But Christ Jesus is asking us to die totally to that old Adamic nature in exchange for the Nature of God, with HIS help, of course.  The process of redemption and restoration to God’s vision can only happen as we decide to truly make Christ Jesus both LORD & SAVIOR for real.  With permission I sometimes ask a person, “If a bolt of lightening hit you and you became a pile of ashes, where would your soul go.”   So send me your answer, if you are interested in the above? And the second question that I ask is, “WHY?   Most so called Christians find an in-between Comfort Zone and  rationalize and even con volute scripture so that they feel OK.  But this is a lie of the enemy as God will not be through pruning and training us until we are like Jesus.  And God will not violate our free-will, we can bail at any time, but HE will never fence us in. Heb.6     So If you do believe in the Precious Promises I challenge you to seek as I do every day to become 100% like Jesus, 1 John 4:17

Today’s Scripture          (Across my desk this morning from a church in Texas.)
“The blood will be a sign for you on the houses where you are, and when I see the blood, I will pass over you. No destructive plague will touch you when I strike Egypt.”  (Exodus 12:13, NIV)
A Place of Protection
In the last plague that God sent on Egypt in order to get the Pharaoh to let the people of Israel go free, God told Moses that the Israelites should mark their doorposts with a lamb’s blood so that the death angel could “pass over” their houses and spare them from the death of all the firstborn of Egypt. You can imagine how careful they were to follow the exact instructions.  Today, have you put the blood of the Lamb of God over your house, so to speak? When you say, “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord,” in effect you’re putting that blood over your doorpost. God says no harm will come near your dwelling. When you’ve accepted the sacrifice of Christ’s salvation, you’re in a place of protection. No weapon formed against you will prosper. Because of the blood of the Son of the living God, there’s a blood line that the enemy cannot cross.
A Prayer For Today
“Father, thank You that I am covered by the blood of Jesus. Thank You that I have Your protection over every area of my life and family. I believe that You have put a blood line of protection around me and no weapon formed against me will prosper. In Jesus’ Name, Amen

Ken’s Thoughts:
Much of the Old Testament is lived as prophetical view of the future.  The Tabernacle of Moses in the Wilderness was the original form for the New Testament Church in Acts.2:41-43.  And the above scripture gives us a very in depth physical description of Jesus being the Lamb of God that takes away the sins of the world and becomes the light of the Kingdom of God as per Rev.21:23.  So Apostle Paul teaches us that the Old Testament was our schoolmaster to bring us unto Christ, Gal.3:24 and that when faith comes we are no longer under a schoolmaster, Gal.3:25.   So the Old Treatment confirms the New Testament and we find most of what Christ Jesus taught is also taught in the Old Testament.  But that Christ Jesus Himself became the real of the prophetical type of the blood that covered our doorway if you will.  So the sacrifice is done, completed and by faith applied to cover our sins.    But then there is the process of sanctification for the Holy Spirit to guide us into true righteousness in the way we live our lives.   If we will allow the Holy Spirit to do so it is HIS task to help us become in the Image and Likeness of God.   To bring us up to speed in becoming like Jesus.  It is just the beginning of the changes that we need when we make Christ Jesus our LORD & SAVIOR and our faith has to be for both as in Romans 10:9-11,  “…because if you acknowledge and confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord [recognizing His power, authority, and majesty as God], and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For with the heart a person believes [in Christ as Savior] resulting in his justification [that is, being made righteous—being freed of the guilt of sin and made acceptable to God]; and with the mouth he acknowledges and confesses [his faith openly], resulting in and confirming [his] salvation. 11 For the Scripture says, “Whoever believes in Him [whoever adheres to, trusts in, and relies on Him] will not be disappointed [in his expectations].” 

But then Apostle Paul takes us from salvation on into holiness.  2 Cor. 7:1, “Therefore, since we have these [great and wonderful] promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from everything that contaminates body and spirit, completing holiness [living a consecrated life—a life set apart for God’s purpose] in the fear of God.  and “… put on the new self [the regenerated and renewed nature], created in God’s image, [godlike] in the righteousness and holiness of the truth [living in a way that expresses to God your gratitude for your salvation]. & …”so that He may strengthen and establish your hearts without blame in holiness in the sight of our God and Father at the coming of our Lord Jesus with all His saints (God’s people).” & “…that each of you know how to control his own body in holiness and honor [being available for God’s purpose and separated from things profane]” & “…For God has not called us to impurity, but to holiness [to be dedicated, and set apart by behavior that pleases Him, whether in public or in private].” &   “…For our earthly fathers disciplined us for only a short time as seemed best to them; but He disciplines us for our good, so that we may share His holiness.

I spent 13 years in a church that taught Sanctification and Holiness was a gift that we received when we were saved.   A lot of church members now believe in that tradition and it is wrong.  Sanctification and Holiness is a growth factor to actually bring us into the Image and Likeness of God.  So if we are not under self discipline or the Father’s discipline unto holiness, we are not yet the children of the Heavenly Father by faith.

According to the LifeWay Research survey, White Evangelicals plan to vote for Trump by a massive7 to 1 ratio for every 10 voters, while Black Evangelicals plan to vote for Joe Biden by the same landslide ratio.    With nearly two months left in the Atlantic hurricane season, Hurricane Delta is expected to make landfall on the mainland United States later this week, the 10th storm this season to do so.     Two Supreme Court justices have made a statement criticizing the landmark 2015 ruling in the case of Obergefell v. Hodges, which mandates that all states recognize same-sex marriage, Fox News reports. Justices Clarence Thomas and Samuel Alito said Monday that the mandate issued cannot be found in the constitution; their statement suggests they might be willing to vote to overturn the ruling if given the opportunity.    Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden has stated he would want to pass legislation cementing Roe v Wade, the Supreme Court case which legalized abortion, as the “law of the land.”

TRIP WIRES & SCARS    “WORTH CONSIDERING”    10/6/20     From Ken<><
Today’s Scripture            (Across my desk from a church in Texas.)
Then he said to Thomas, “Put your finger here, and look at my hands. Put your hand into the wound in my side. Don’t be faithless any longer. Believe!” “My Lord and my God!” Thomas exclaimed.  (John 20:27–28, NLT)
Show Your Scars
After Jesus’ resurrection, Thomas had declared that he wouldn’t believe unless he felt the wounds in Jesus’ hands and side. When Jesus appeared to Thomas, He held out His hands and said, “Touch My scars.” Thomas fell down and said, “Lord, I believe!”   Maybe somebody needs to touch your scars to believe. Maybe they need to hear your story of how God brought you through the sickness, through the divorce, through the mistake or loss. Don’t hide your scars; show your scars. Your scars can inspire someone else to believe. There’s healing in your scars. When you see other people who are wounded, do like Jesus did and tell them, “Touch my scars.” Let them know that what God did for you, He can do for them. When they hear how God healed you, restored you, and blessed you, that will breathe new life into their spirit. God didn’t show you mercy just for your sake; those scars are for somebody else.
A Prayer For Today
“Father, thank You for the scars that Jesus bore in His hands and side for my redemption. Thank You for healing me of the wounds that I have had. Help me to show my scars and use my scars to encourage others of what You can do for them. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”

Ken’s Thought:
My, this is such a needed message for all of us hear and to consider and do as guided by the Holy Spirit.   And I personally know that it is not easy to do.  At my age, I have scars all over me from one thing or another.  But nothing like the interior soul scars that we are considering today.  And I am tempted to include a few, but then was checked by the Holy Spirit as HE wants to guide me more specifically as needed and not publish another “confessional.”  But you do get the drift and some times the scars are good memories.  That I can share.   I use to love to go rock hunting and could see the hand of GOD in the buried treasure.  One day I was out in the Desert with my big hammer and chisel banging on some rock looking for hidden geodes and heard what sounded like a 22 firing in the distance.  And then something hit the big joint on my right thumb holding the hammer.  So though I was just grazed by a rock shard and thought nothing of it and it healed up without a trace.  Three year later I felt a strange little lump so next time I went to a Dr. I showed it to him.  He gave me a pain shot, opened it up and out came a little piece of steel from my chisel from my Mojave days.  So today there is a scar and I remember those wonderful days in the desert.  So I have good memory scars, stupid scars, dangerous scars and painful scars.  Never thought to much about them until today.  Got one from a boat ride up the inland passage way to Alaska, what a good memory that was.  Got a big one where I let a stupid Dr. use a laser to take out something under the skin that turned out to be just a small splinter.  So the story goes, we all have inside and outside scars.   The inside scars are harder to deal with as we can only find them when we realize that when we touch them we tend to go off track.  We become very self protective or perhaps even aggressive.  Or perhaps we go hide.  But we realize we are not free that we are running a program good or bad that is really not us.  Paul writes about this in Romans 7:14-20   “ We know that the Law is spiritual; but I am a creature of the flesh [carnal, unspiritual], having been sold into slavery under [the control of] sin.  15 For I do not understand my own actions [I am baffled, bewildered]. I do not practice or accomplish what I wish, but I do the very thing that I loathe [ [b] which my moral instinct condemns].  16 Now if I do [habitually] what is contrary to my desire, [that means that] I acknowledge and agree that the Law is good (morally excellent) and that I take sides with it.  17 However, it is no longer I who do the deed, but the sin [principle] which is at home in me and has possession of me.  18 For I know that nothing good dwells within me, that is, in my flesh. I can will what is right, but I cannot perform it. [I have the intention and urge to do what is right, but no power to carry it out.]  19 For I fail to practice the good deeds I desire to do, but the evil deeds that I do not desire to do are what I am [ever] doing.  20 Now if I do what I do not desire to do, it is no longer I doing it [it is not myself that acts], but the sin [principle] which dwells within me [ [c] fixed and operating in my soul]. 

And I would strongly suggest, if interested, to Read.  Romans chapters 1, 7, 8 to see how to have victory and to level the playing field.  Otherwise you may spend your life time with someone hitting your trip wires and going into an obsession mode of saying and doing things that are not really the truth or helpful for anyone.  A member of my family hated Ma Bell Telephone Co. And if we made a long distance call from his home, reverse charges, we would always get 30 minutes of anti Ma Bell.  So we avoided the trip wire by using the payphone down at the corner.  So check out your trip wires as they will greatly shorten the effectiveness of your life and perhaps even void you trip to HIS Kingdom.  Past pains from relationship that have gone sour are a must to check.  As we tend to use the past darkness of our past in painting the future even if we were wrong.  And if we do we may miss out on God’s Blessings for us.  We need to totally clear the past in order to have a good and clean future with our Creator.  And you can not be an atheist unless you know all about everything in creation for 15 billion light years in every direction.  So you should be logically looking to see why you are here and where are you going?   If not, you have your head in the sand.  Intelligent design is everywhere you look.  I was looking at a very intricate bug the other day,  yes, must be a GOD.

      “WORTH CONSIDERING”       10/5/20      From Ken<><

Did not find the sparking blog today from the church in Texas so guess need to go it alone today.   And as I am now 88 and getting closer to graduation, what could I write the is totally important and “Worth Considering?”

Jesus said something in HIS teachings that has always been a special light for me.
“And you will know the Truth, and the Truth will set you free.”  John 8:32   Three times in John 8, Jesus mentions that HE was the “I AM” of God…  That HE was the one who gave the 10 Commandments to Moses.  And they missed it.  And in fact I missed it to for many decades as it was not taught as revealed as in the context of the Greek.   Seems to me that the Enemy has been working overtime to keep us stupid,  divided and controllable.  

So 1st on my list.
Know your enemy.  How can you battle unless you know were your battle field really is.  That means getting honest with yourself.  We have people calling themselves Christian when Jesus is not really LORD.   So there are very secure people in what they believe about their good works as all that is needed for a deed to the Kingdom.  When the Bible clearly spells out it is having a relationship with the Holy Spirit and Jesus that get’s the ticket.   It is faith in the Precious Promises that helps us in being changed into the image and likeness of God in Righteousness.

But many have departed from the Holy Scriptures to make their own denominationally based building dedicated to their own traditions.  It is amazing the difference between the Early Church home forum gathering and the spectator theaters that many call Church today.   It is not that they are wrong in all cases.  There were many big open air theater for evangelism and the ministry of truth  But there is enough wrong today so that folks get bored and quit seeking  to find the power of GOD elsewhere and some even return to the  encouraged through the Holy Bible.  But many fall away and become Gospel hardened.

Some Church members are taught to make Jesus Savior because they don’t want to be excluded from heaven.  They are told that is all they need to do.    But the Bible teaches us to make Jesus LORD.   And although God is totally all powerful and wants to lovingly teach us Obedience and Righteousness as with Adam.  Yet it is only through faith and love and your personal decision for humility, obedience and righteousness that God can do so.     It can only happen as we are being encourage to learn to  run to God and not from God.   It is only though the Holy Spirit that we can be trained in humility, obedience and how to use the power of God to help each other.  This means that we must spend time in learning about HIS great promises and in the process come into faith to want to become obedient to them as being real.   It is only then that we really can start the process of learning to live in God’s Kingdom of Righteousness and Power and become sanctified.
It is only then that we will be a match for the Kingdom of Righteousness that is being built.

So the core of really being a Christian is when in God’s Truth, Jesus is LORD become the core of our being.  That we give up the rights to control our lives to God.   This means the stuff we got from Adam of pride and rebellion has to go.  Truth comes by hearing and hearing by the Word of God.   It is finding all the truth in the Word of God and building on it that we become like HIM.   On any given subject we need to find the whole picture from Geneses to Revelation.   (Actually easy to do with Bible Gateway.)   We need it all to have all the facets of God’s Truth to see HIS TRUTH and be free.  This key is found in Isaiah 28,  precept upon precept and line upon line.  And the chapter goes on to say that God is going to wash away all of the deception in the resurrection.  It is like the old saying:  Content without Context is pretext.   Context is to take the time to get the overview before you make a decision.   And unless you personally know the all the truth,  you are not qualified to judge.   It is like being an atheist is really stupid as you must know all about everything in all of creation to make the judgment that God does not exist.   If you prefer to excuse yourself from the spiritual world, the best you can say is, ” I really don’t  know.”  Or further to be honest,  “I am not really impressed by what I have seen so far.”  But then don’t you really want to know, deep down.  If there is a door into another room to eternity, don’t you want to be sure you find it?

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

D.L. Moody rarely spoke of His Baptism in the Spirit which took place in New York just after his church was burned down in the great Chicago fire of 1871. It radically changed his ministry, earning him the moniker, “Crazy Moody.” Yet, his preaching brought thousands to faith, and Moody Bible Institute in Chicago has educated thousands more for ministry since its birth.  The third great awakening saw God radically empowering believers by His Spirit to usher in a harvest in their generation which continues to impact society today.  George Mueller began a movement of orphanages and Christian schools, and amazingly, was accused of raising the poor out of their ‘station in life’ as he educated over 120,000 children.  Elsewhere in Great Britain, William Booth’s Salvation Army outreach was birthed out of the third great awakening. His concern for rampant alcoholism led to the prohibition movement of the 1930s. Riding on a wagon through the streets, Booth called on alcoholics to stop drinking and come to faith in Jesus. His success led former drunks to coin the phrase, “I’m on the wagon”.

Worthy Brief <;   A Haitian pastor and his wife who had immigrated to the US were found murdered upon returning to their island as missionaries, the Christian Post reported Sunday. Pastor Jean Phillippe-Quetant (57) and his wife Erna Plancher-Quetant (54) were shot dead in their home during the course of an armed robbery. The couple are survived by five children.  Symbolizing his eagerness to open up America despite the coronavirus outbreak, President Donald Trump returned to the White House Monday night after leaving the military hospital where he was treated for COVID-19.     In contrast to a low-key stance it has adopted in the past, China is now pushing hard for leadership posts in United Nations agencies, frequently resorting to bribery and economic coercion in doing so, the Washington Times reported on Sunday. As one of the five Permanent Members of the UN Security Council, China has veto power.

JUDGMENT,    “WORTH CONSIDERING”   10/2/20   From Ken<><

Today’s Scripture     (Across my desk this Friday from a Church in Texas.)
As they danced, they sang: “Saul has slain his thousands, and David his tens of thousands.”
(1 Samuel 18:7, NIV)
Join the Dance
King Saul had been happy running his race until David started getting more praise than him. From that moment on, Saul never looked at David the same way and ended up losing his throne over it. What was his problem? He could not handle somebody getting ahead of him. Saul got distracted and spent months and months trying to kill David all because he wasn’t comfortable with who he was.  Maybe like Saul, you’re at the one thousand level but you have a friend who’s at the ten thousand level. The real test to see if God can promote you is: Can you celebrate people who pass you by and stay focused on your race? Can you celebrate what you’ve accomplished? Our attitude should be: “God may have made me to be a one thousand-level person, but I’m going to be the best one thousand-level person you’ve ever seen. I’m going to become all God has created me to be.”
A Prayer For Today
“Father, thank You for the amazing people You have brought into my life, and thank You that You’ve made me amazing as well. Thank You that I am not competing against others but simply running my own race. I celebrate who You have made me to be. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”

Ken’s Thoughts:
Actually we are told in scripture to judge nothing before the time.  That all judgment really is in the hands of the Lord  Jesus Christ.  The reason is that we are locked in a dimension of time and we have only a limited understanding and perspective.  I made a tract into a paper airplane and gave it to a lovely little girl in Denny’s the other day.   Prayed over it, what happened to is, only God knows.  Could quickly be trashed… or could turn the family towards the LORD.  But much in my life now is done with simple obedience.   As I left my study the Holy Spirit reminded me to take some tracts along.  As I ate breakfast, a man and 9 yr. old girl sat down for a special time together.  The Holy Spirit told me to make a paper airplane of the tract which can really fly pretty good.  And as I left I ask the father if the daughter could have the airplane and he was delighted to have a gift for the daughter.  And her eyes lit up with the expectancy of playing with the little toy.   And I know in the process the tract will start to come apart and that the picture of a lighthouse and the words “Let There Be Light” will flash out and perhaps the tract, all Bible on light, will be considered.  What a nice moment in time.  But what will happen out of it, I will not find out until standing before the LORD and giving an account of my life on earth.  I am having my 4th printing of 1,000 tracts printed now.  Cost about .10 cents each to have printed.  Want some, let me know.

So it really does not matter where I am in the flow of God’s Kingdom.  I am only responsible to use what God has entrusted to my care for HIS GLORY as best as I know how.  That to be 100% committed to living my life in Christ Jesus by the Power of the Holy Spirit.  And that I am not in competition with anyone.  I am unique, one of a kind.  There will never be anyone else like me.  God made me and broke the mold.  I don’t have to measure up to anyone else.  I just need to learn to run at 100% efficiency for Jesus as my LORD.  And to not be weighted down by the stuff or cares of this world unless they are part of what God wants me to carry.   He is looking for kids to love HIM with all their heart and not with one eye on the T.V. or in getting that shiney new car or…..

Life consists not in the abundance of things we posses but by every Word that proceeds from the mouth of God.   As I see it now at 88, I need to set my personal ideals in neutral if I really want the Holy Spirit to be my guide in life.  It is either all God or it is all me.  I want it to be all God…  Jesus made this very clear in His teachings in the Gospels.

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

FAITH & PRESUMPTION        “WORTH CONSIDERING” 10/1/20    From Ken<><       (Also check out:  )

Today’s Scripture      (Across my desk this morning from a church in Texas.)
For he “has put everything under his feet.”  (1 Corinthians 15:27, NIV)
It’s Under Your Feet
How we see our difficulties very often will determine whether or not we get out of them. When you face challenges and things come against you, it’s easy to get overwhelmed and start thinking, This is never going to work out. I’ll just have to learn to live with it. That kind of thinking not only pushes you down, but it stops God from working. It’s going to attract fear, worry, and doubt. Many people settle for mediocrity. You have to change your perspective. If you’re going to live in victory, you have to see every sickness, every obstacle, and every temptation as being under your feet. It’s no match for you. It’s not going to keep you from your destiny. It’s already defeated. God is going to use it as a stepping stone to take you higher. It’s just a matter of time before you break through to a new level.
A Prayer For Today
“Father, thank You that Your Word says that You have put all things—every sickness, obstacle, and temptation—under my feet. Thank You that I don’t have to just learn to live with it or put up with it. I declare that all of these challenges are under my feet. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”

Ken’s Thoughts:
When watching a YouTube concerning the ministry of Andrew Strom last night it was interesting and confirming that a Divine healing came to a women when she deeply forgave another person.      I really feel a kindred spirit with Andrew even though his ministry is in New Zealand.   And as I was viewing a YouTube on Kathryn Kuhlman, I again came under God’s anointing and started to cry.
Healing was automatic when God’s Holy Presence and Will was sincerely acknowledged.  God’s Will can only be done when our will is in neutral.  And God’s power will only flow as we come into a place of acknowledging and submitting to HIS Holy Presence.   So things are only under your feet if they are also under HIS.   We don’t go by our feelings but by faith.  What God says in HIS Word is true regardless of how I feel.  Our need is to be faithful to HIM and to our faith in HIS precious promises and not by our feelings.   Feelings can be fickled.   Watch this clip if you are really interested in Kathryn Kuhlman.

My personal experience with Kathryn goes back to 1968 to a 7,000 seat auditorium in Los Angeles.  I had the opportunity to usher and sing in the choir and really experience the presence of the Holy Spirit in power.   As an usher I helped a man from his wheel chair, he was a sack of bones with hardly any muscles at all when I placed him in a seat so his chair could be removed due to the fire code.  When the meeting closed he was pushing his friend that brought him back and forth, across the stage in his own wheel chair.  At another service I saw perhaps a 150 hippies come forward to receive Christ as Lord.   One night I came early to set in the Choir and was just sitting, thinking and praying when the 7,000 seats were full with thousands standing outside and the house lights went out.  I thought the power had been turned off.  A short of something?  But then I began to see small lights in some of the seats.  In some sections it was like salt and pepper.  In other sections it was bright lights for 20-30 seats, Good church, I guess.  But 2/3 of the seats were dark and empty.  Then I blinked and the house lights were back on and the auditorium was still full of people.  But my Heavenly Father showed me things in a different way, HIS way.  Seems it was the difference of making Jesus savior to keep out of hell or making Jesus LORD and allowing HIM to rule.   I saw Kathryn as a prophetess of God and certainly had no difficult with her being a woman.   What came out of her mouth was simply pure Jesus.   So, if we say or think we are Christians, what comes out of our mouth?  If Jesus is really LORD then what should come out of our mouth should match?  James puts it this way.  James 3:17    7 But the wisdom from above is first pure [morally and spiritually undefiled], then peace-loving [courteous, considerate], gentle, reasonable [and willing to listen], full of compassion and good fruits.   So this is what a Christian tongue should be about, seems to me.  Take a little time and read James, Chapter 3… Give yourself a report card.  Also take a look at Isa.28 concerning foundations….  Very interesting for me as Isa. made a prophesy concerning the folks who would make up their own way to try to go to God’s heaven.

A MUST TO REVIEW (Much  needed  information.)  WILLIAM BARR on Religious Liberty

Worthy Brief <;    A new poll by the Barna group has found that nearly 75% of pastors believe the presidential election and its aftermath will negatively affect their churches, the Christian Post reports.     A Christian aid group urged churches Wednesday to join the November 3 ‘International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church’ amid “genocide” and other attacks faced by believers.    As more death certificates are tabulated by the CDC’s National Center for Health Statistics, it now appears that the COVID death toll ticked up, not down, in the week that ended on August 1, by the very smallest of margins.    Secretary of State Mike Pompeo spoke on the phone with Saudi Foreign Minister Faisalbin Farhan Sunday, discussing the Abraham peace accords between Israel and the United Arab Emirates and Bahrain, Israel National News reports. Following the signing of the Abraham Accords on September 15, President Donald Trump said he expected Saudi Arabia to also normalize ties with Israel “when the time comes.”
Are we witnessing a “great awakening?” We’ll find out … for if it is of God … who can really be against it? The real question that faces each of us… “are we awakened?” If so, then the Lord is beginning a great awakening within each one of us! Isn’t this what a move of God does? May revival begin in each one of us … don’t worry about the controversies … the truth is controversial enough!   Darkness and Death will always hate the LIGHT, look what they did with Jesus….

VOICE OF GOD    “WORTH CONSIDERING”      9/30/20,      From Ken<>

Today’s Scripture         (Over my desk this morning from a church in Texas.)
Most important of all, continue to show deep love for each other, for love covers a multitude of sins.  (1 Peter 4:8, NLT)
Love Covers
In relationships, we all have disagreements, tension, and stress. When we do, we need to step back and remember that love makes allowances for other people’s weaknesses. Love covers a wrong done to it. You have to rise above these petty things that are pulling you apart. Give people room to have a bad day. When they’re rude, don’t respond. Be an eagle and rise above it. Life is too short for you to live at odds, being contentious, arguing over things that don’t matter. Some people have to have the last word in every argument. Don’t be hardheaded. Let it go. Quit wasting your energy. You have a destiny to fulfill. You have an assignment to accomplish. Those are distractions trying to pull you off course. Zip it up and let the other person be right. You may know they’re wrong, but it doesn’t matter. Don’t waste your valuable time on something that’s not moving you toward your purpose.
A Prayer For Today
“Father, thank You for loving and approving me just as I am. Help me to do the same with others and seek the best for others. I ask You for the deep love that covers offenses and weaknesses so that I can honor You in everything I do. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.”
Ken’s Thoughts:
Last night, I could not watch the presidential debate, it was disgusting.  Neither party was a true statesman.  We have come to this?  Of course, as a businessman organizer, I do feel Trump has been the best of the 2 choices allowed to us.  But we, as a nation do need to rise as a eagle and get an overview of God’s vision for our nation.  Obviously, we all know that if we keep drifting the way we have been going that judgment must fall.  At one time most of the Bibles in the world came from America, now most of the porn.  Use to be that we did all we knew how to do to save unborn children.  Now we find that some have been using the living body parts of abortions for experiments with animals. When I was in grade school God was in literature, social studies, English, geography and song and prayer and such.  Even had the 10 commandments by the light switch by the door.  No every vestige of God is being removed from the education of our children and even the parents are called on the carpet if their children are too religious.  And all of this can be changed at the present time at the ballot box.

None of us have it together even though we pretend that we do and can snow most of the people around us most of the time.   But then we need to live with ourselves and we know better.  So it is past time that we get honest with ourselves and God and come clean in humility so we can be healed.  Repent was the beginning message for the Church in Acts in Peter’s first message that converted 3,000 men, heads of families.   To repent for being like Adam is the beginning of life eternal.  Notice what Adam did when he was caught by God with his hand in the cooky jar.  God, you are responsible.  LOOK, it was the poor quality of a woman that you gave me.  She is the one who is responsible.   Of course Eve also had her story.  The serpent was so beautiful, You made him,  he beguiled me.  Blame shifting from the very beginning and we are still knee deep in it every day.

You have a totally free will.  You have every right to do with your life what you please.  In that way you are like God.  Except that God knows better than to sin and is not tempted by the lies of sin.  And HE actually has us spend a life time on earth to be able to figure it out.   Every day we are faced with a so called easy way which usually ends up having strings.  And we are confronted with a God way that sometimes looks difficult but then becomes easy.  Like I have been needing a large window put in the shop.  49″x 64″ and heavy.    After months of trying to get a really good price used or wholesale or CraigsList…  I finally got quiet enough a couple of days ago and heard the LORD simply say, just get the window….  So I called 3 places,  got a price at one store that was ½ that of another, orderd the glass, picked it up this morning and now already installed.  So another item off of my list.  So take the stuff to the LORD, then back off and find a place of peace and listen.  You will be surprised how your list get’s smaller and smaller.  So bottom line it is the better to be able to learn to hear the voice of the LORD and do as HE says regardless of how it looks.  It is better to be right with GOD though all around you feel you are nuts.  “Unless the LORD build the house, they labor in vain that build it”.  So don’t start something unless you know for sure it is HIS will.  And once you start don’t look back or listen to your so called friends tell you whay it will not work.  I often think of the Noah jokes of the day, that was one big barge with no water.  But the day came and the laughing stopped.  The snatching of the Church from the earth will be like that….  I have written a paper called, “The King is Coming” want a copy, tell me, no charge of course.  Ken<><

Worthy Brief <;     Asserting that faith values should not be excluded from public life, a British Member of Parliament has called on the UK government to recognize that faith communities can be an “enormous resource for society,” Christian Today reported Monday. In a report submitted to Prime Minister Boris Johnson, Conservative (and Christian) MP Danny Kruger suggests the government ought to work out a “new deal with faith communities” that includes them in societal policy considerations.     After learning that career analysts disputed there was Trump-Russia “collusion” in the run-up to the 2016 election, CIA Director John Brennan personally edited the intelligence report on Russian interference in the election in order to continue justifying the ongoing “collusion” probe, RealClearInvestigations (RCI) reported Thursday.     U.S. intelligence developed evidence from Russia in summer 2016 that Hillary Clinton had personally approved a plan to concoct the Russia collusion narrative in an effort to harm Donald Trump and distract from her email scandal, according to an explosive document made public Tuesday by the Director of National Intelligence.
