Aloha Saints, Family & Friends,  beloved of Jesus and me,   John 3:16

FIRE & DARKNESS        “WORTH CONSIDERING”    11/15/21    From Ken<><

There is an interesting verse in Luke 3:16,   “John answered, saying unto them all, I indeed baptize you with water; but one mightier than I cometh, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire:”

Actually the Greek Word “baptize.”    “There was a reason that the words for baptism were transliterated. Several centuries ago when the Bible was first translated into English in Great Britain, the Anglican Church in Britain practiced sprinkling as its mode of baptism.  The translators of the Bible could have gotten themselves into a great deal of trouble if they had translated this Greek word into English. Why? Because the word literally translates “to dip, plunge or immerse.” It is used in secular Greek of dyeing a garment, immersing it so that it is thoroughly covered. It is also used to describe a boat that has sunk beneath the water.  The meaning of the word is clear, but the translators did not wish to come into conflict with the beliefs of the Church of England, so they decided not to translate it, but transliterated it instead.

So in Luke 3:16?, what was John trying to tell us concerning being baptized by fire.   To be immersed or saturated by fire?   Some have thought John was considering hell?   Some have thought it was out of Ezek.28:18, and Acts 2:3 & Heb.1:7.   But last night it seemed to me in prayer that perhaps it was referring to our Creator’s original vision to make man in HIS image as with Jesus in the Resurrection in Rev.1:14-16?  “And HIS countenance was aw the sun shineth in his strength.”

The way that I see it is that we are in a process of sanctification if headed into the Rapture and 1st Resurrection and the transition that our Creator has designed for those who really make Jesus LORD is to ultimately make us to be like HIM.  Rom. 8:29,   “For whom he did foreknow, he also did predestinate to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brethren.”  So in the Revelation we get a preview of God’s plan for us if we will allow it to happen as nothing is manipulated or forced, it all works by faith and freewill.  You can spend your life doing anything that you want to.   But only those whose commitment is 100% for Jesus and the Kingdom of God will receive God’s wonderful grace and mercy to find their way into HIS Eternal Family with the New Heavens and the New Earth.

In 2 Cor. 5:20 it appears we are supposed to be Ambassadors representing the Kingdom of Heaven in our lost world of darkness.  And in Rev. 1:6 we are to be made into kings and priests unto God as also in Rev. 5:10.   So in Christ Jesus, by the Holy Spirit we are in training to became Ambassador, Kings & Priests unto our GOD & Creator.  And further that the Church is to become without Spot, Wrinkle or Blemish, seems to me, before we get to go home?  Eph.5:27.”  How much of our time are we spending to find out how to be ready.   In Matt. 25:1 Jesus tell us that 50% of those called to go to the union were rejected because they were not ready.  And the door was closed while they were shopping and they were rejected and not let in.

So this general consensus of being comfortable in a so called traditional church,  while on earth the harvest is ripe and ready for the harvest is not good rational thinking.  So do you really understand the amount of change we need to embrace to become like Jesus and be ready to enjoy the jump to light speed in the Rapture?  Are you really in the school of humility and obedience to find out how to change to become like Jesus?  Or are you into your own thing?

So Personal Notes in my e-mails over the last few days…..
My internet here runs through a phone line,  but there is fiber optics now in HOVE.     Makes me almost want to move.   Makes me almost want to sell this place.   But when the 2nd great depression hits I really don’t want to be in HOVE either?   It is going to be one big mess and a lot worse than in 1929.    Our nation has been broke for many years now with no balanced budget nor term limitations.  And has just been just kicking the debt can down the road until now there is no road left.   Socialism and very stupid and never delivers what it promises.  And if voted in only makes slaves of the workers so that the elite can live high and control everyone.

Aloha Kennedy Brown,  Your book “Exiting the Sunday Church” arrived this morning 11/14, from Amazon,  so will start exploring your “Exiting” of the counterfeit, theater, watered down so called traditional church.  I am pretty sure we are on the same page but seems that the need is to gather the real Church together as a chapter 29 in Acts so that the fire can be re-kindle the ultimate Church of Christ Jesus that is without spot, wrinkle or blemish.  Got through the 1st Chapter,  an amazing book so far….   Blessings,  Ken

Seems to me HIS REAL CHURCH today is much like starting a fire in a rain storm.   Got to find some dry space,  then kindling that is dry,  a spark from the Holy Spirit with the Breath and Truth of God.  Then a small fire, lots of smoke and carefully feed dry combustible materials until a good hot fire is made.  Then those folks in the Rev. 17 & 18:4…. will come, when hot, to get dried out and warm;  Like Saul who became Paul due to the hot fire of the Early Church and especially Stephen.  The Bride of Christ goes home in perfection without spot, wrinkle or blemish as a match for her LORD.   Every part fitly joined and compacted as the “Rod of Iron” in the hands of the LORD for bringing the full will of God into all of HIS Creation.

Actually the ultimate end of lucifer and his minions,  is the Lake of Fire for eternity at the end of the LORD’S 1,000 year Kingdom on earth.   And I see this as perhaps like a black hole securing lucifer,  demons plus the lost souls of man without bodies but still with a total recall of the life lived and opportunities rejected and finding no place of repentance or restoration.   And finding themselves utterly alone for eternity.  This being the fires of torment.  All souls were/are created to be eternal, only our body is temporal due to Adam’s pride and rebellion.   If,  no new body when this one dies, then no way to communicate or to experience anything.  Seems our loving Creator seems only to tell us a about the creation of new eternal bodies for those in Christ Jesus who desire to live in righteousness and obedience to Jesus as LORD.   Why would our Creator create new bodies for the lost as in consideration of what they have done with planet earth and to Jesus.  Even the saved will only be admitted into Heaven due to the forgiveness and redemption as found through Christ Jesus as their LORD.  If any soul on earth walks in the light that they have and wants more, God will send it to them.  Rom. 1:18….  Rev. 22:17

Yours, in HIS great Love and Wonderful Grace & Mercy,   Ken<>< www.OhanaChurch.Life

There is but ONE Church of Christ Jesus as LORD, and
all who Love, Honor and Obey HIM are eternal members.
