FAITH & RAPTURE,     “WORTH CONSIDERING”   5/18/21,    From Ken<><

To be included, everything in the Kingdom of God, is a matter of faith.   Without faith it is impossible to please GOD.  If we don’t have faith to make Christ Jesus LORD, we remain lost.   If we don’t have faith to receive the Baptism in the Holy Spirit we remain powerless.   If we don’t have the faith to get out of the boat,  we will never learn to walk on water.  Faith is the Substance and Evidence of things hoped for and not seen.

Why did I have to wait 13 years to receive the Baptism in the Holy Spirit?    It was due to my false doctrine and lack of faith that needed to be corrected.   Above all things, God honors our freewill but only in faith & truth.  “Be it unto you according to your faith.”  Matt. 9:28-30.    If you are set on going through part of the Great Tribulation,  that is your faith?   There is but one Rapture, not 2 or 3.  Frankly I feel I will be with Jesus booting lucifer and his minions out of the Kingdom of God from the beginning to the middle of the Great Tribulation.   The time of the Rapture (Rev.12:11 is still with God and will come as a thief in the night.   We need to be on a constant watch for it.  Matt.24:42-44  Jesus tells us that we will not know until in the instant that it happens.  And only those with oil and bright lamps of faith will get to go.

In Essentials, Unity.   In all else Love. 

The Deity of our Lord Jesus Christ (John 1:1, John 20:28, Heb. 1:8 9), the Creator God Himself (Col. 1:16. Compare Gen. 1:1). Who “laid the foundation of the earth” (Heb. 1:10 12. Compare Psalms 102:24 27).
The Virgin Birth (Isaiah 7:14, Mt. 1:23, Luke 1:27).
The Blood Atonement (Acts 20:28, Rom. 3:25, Rom. 5:9, Eph. 1:7).
The Bodily Resurrection (Luke 24:36 46, 1 Cor. 15:1 4, 1 Cor. 15:14 15).
The Second Advent of Christ Jesus to set up His Kingdom on Earth and in Eternity (Isa. 9:6,7)
The inerrancy of the Holy Scriptures themselves (Psalms 12:6 7, Rom. 15:4, 2Tim. 3:16 17, 2Pet. 1:20). This is a reference to people who claim to have revelations apart from the Holy Scriptures and which can not be supported by Holy Scripture.

An expanded confession of faith:
I confess that Jesus Christ is my Lord, Master, and Savior. By faith in Christ Jesus, I am forgiven, cleansed, healed and made a citizen of His eternal kingdom. Jesus Christ has redeemed me from the curse of the law of sin, sickness, weakness and eternal death through His death on the cross for me. I believe in the Trinity of one God: Almighty Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. I believe that Jesus Christ is the Creator made flesh, The Word of God who was begotten as the second Adam. He was born of a virgin, died for my sins, rose for my justification and is coming again soon, in great glory, to establish His Kingdom on earth. I believe in the new birth from above, the baptism in water, and the baptism in the Holy Spirit. I confess that the blood of Jesus Christ has cleansed me from all my sin and I am now made the righteousness of God in and through Christ Jesus. I confess that I can do all things through Christ who is my strength as I abide in Him. I confess that this world is not my home. I confess that I am a pilgrim in a foreign land and I look for that certain return of my Lord Jesus Christ and His Kingdom. I confess that there is but one holy universal and apostolic Church of Jesus Christ and all those who are born from above are brethren and citizens of His kingdom. I believe that the Church of Jesus Christ is being perfected by the Holy Spirit through the Apostles, Prophets, Evangelists, Pastors, Teachers and other ministries of His Church until all the faithful come into the unity of the faith and the bond of peace and are changed into the image and likeness of Jesus Christ, (Eph. 4:1 16).

Our present world.   Prophesy of the last days Church by Apostle Paul: 2 Tim. 3:1    

But understand this, that in the last days will come (set in) perilous times of great stress and trouble [hard to deal with and hard to bear].  2 For people will be lovers of self and [utterly] self-centered, lovers of money and aroused by an inordinate [greedy] desire for wealth, proud and arrogant and contemptuous boasters. They will be abusive (blasphemous, scoffing), disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy and profane.  3 [They will be] without natural [human] affection (callous and inhuman), relentless (admitting of no truce or appeasement); [they will be] slanderers (false accusers, troublemakers), intemperate and loose in morals and conduct, uncontrolled and fierce, haters of good.  4 [They will be] treacherous [betrayers], rash, [and] inflated with self-conceit. [They will be] lovers of sensual pleasures and vain amusements more than and rather than lovers of God.  5 For [although] they hold a form of piety (true religion), they deny and reject and are strangers to the power of it [their conduct belies the genuineness of their profession]. Avoid [all] such people [turn away from them].

Worthy Brief <;
A new poll by Rasmussen shows that around two-thirds of American voters consider the current migrant situation at the US-Mexico border to be a “crisis,” and half believe the Biden administration is to blame for it, Fox 28 reports. The survey of 1,000 likely US was conducted on 9-10 May 2021.     China’s Communist authorities have launched a digital revolution against Christianity, according to Christians familiar with the situation.      Islamist militants killed and injured numerous Christians in a church and towns in central and northern Nigeria, Christians confirmed Thursday.   An open letter by Retired Military leaders who have served in recent administrations blasted the Biden administration, his mental fitness, and stated the election was rigged in their open letter published this week.

‘Illegals are flooding our country’   Conservative lawmakers in over thirty US states have introduced legislation to prohibit transgender youth from competing in female sports, the American Family Association reports.    The Biden administration said in a court filing last week it may reverse a 21-year-old restriction on the abortion pill and allow it to be distributed by mail, even after the pandemic ends.  Row verses Wade to be reconsidered by the Supreme Court.

U.S. Customs and Border Protection just released the official count of border apprehensions from April, and the numbers unsurprisingly SURPASSED March’s record high apprehension numbers:      More than 178,000 migrants in total ILLEGALLY crossed the Southern Border in the month of April ALONE     Over 17,000 of those migrants were unaccompanied children.   This is the HIGHEST one-month total of illegal crossings in the past 20 years. And more are coming…  This is unconstitutional as it violates national laws to protect our nations boarders.

Be Blessed in your day,   Ken<><
