ALOHA SAINT, FAMILY & FRIENDS,  Beloved of God and me,  John 3:16

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.”

Worthy Brief <;    The Wall Street Journal interviewed disease detectives and reviewed hundreds of pages of new research to piece together how the coronavirus infiltrated the wealthiest nation on earth. The latest genetic, epidemiological and computational research suggests it was spreading inside the country before anyone started looking.  The U.S. government has finally issued an official policy on the inadmissibility of foreigners affiliated with Communist or totalitarian parties. The critical new rule appears to be the Trump administration’s response to an epidemic of Communists, mainly from China, that have stolen billions of dollars in taxpayer-funded scientific research while working in the United States with Uncle Sam’s permission.    President Trump has signed an executive order aimed at countering China’s drive to corner the international market on rare earth minerals — key elements used in high-tech products that are the backbone of the U.S. economy and key weapons systems.   China has told Taiwan’s opposition party to “prepare for war,” Just the News reports.
