ALOHA FAMILY & FRIENDS, Beloved of God and me, John 3:14-18
POWER “WORTH CONSIDERING” 6/16/20 From Ken<><
Today’s Scripture (In my mailbox from Texas today.)
“…Jesus simply replied, “Go home. Your son lives.” The man believed the bare word Jesus spoke and headed home. On his way back, his servants intercepted him and announced, “Your son lives!…” (John 4:48–54, MSG)
Take Him at His Word
A government official had come to Jesus begging Him to come heal his son who was close to death. Jesus didn’t pray or take a lot of time, but matter-of-factly declared that the boy was healed and he should go home. The whole time walking back home, the man could have thought, I don’t know if it’s going to happen, He didn’t even pray. But he simply took God at His word and later found that his son had been healed at the exact time Jesus said to him, “Your son lives.” Like this man, there are promises God has spoken to you, things in your heart that you know are going happen—healing, promotion, divine connections. Make the decision you’re not going to worry, you’re not going to go around doubting, thinking it’s never going to happen. Stay in faith knowing that the moment God said it, He released it. It’s already in your future and is headed your way.
A Prayer for Today
Father, thank You for Your goodness and favor and that You are faithful to Your word. I take You at Your word and believe that You have some unexpected deliveries coming my way. I believe it’s going to happen sooner than expected. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.
My first thoughts are: This is a very personal testimony of a day in the life of Christ Jesus with profoundly great results as usual. But the key words here are: And the man believed the word that Jesus had spoken unto him, and he went his way. Seems to me for today we must first get into knowing for sure which voice is really Jesus. And second that the father did not try to tell Jesus how to perform the needed miracle. The father could have insisted that after the meeting that Jesus really needed to come to his house or church for it to happen. He did not tell Jesus that we need to get together a prayer meeting or that Jesus would need special fasting and prayer. Obviously the father deeply loved his son and he came himself. In fact in John 14:11-13 Jesus tells us: “ 11 Believe me that I am in the Father, and the Father in me: or else believe me for the very works’ sake. 12 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father. 13 And whatsoever ye shall ask in my name, that will I do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son.
So why is this not our experience? Could it be that our vain traditions have made the Word of God ineffective? Again in Eph. 4:11-16 we are reminded by Apostle Paul that if we will allow ourselves to be fitly joined and compacted that the world will than be able to see Jesus. It seems that much needs to be restored to the Holy Spirit that we have taken from HIM and call it church. And also we have created our Jesus to be acceptable in our world through our traditions. Looks like we have become comfortable with “lukewarm” as per prophesy in Rev. 3 and 1 Tim.3 and have tried to make our Creator in our image rather than to submit in humility to being restored to HIS image. Personally I long for the Real Church of Christ Jesus to be gathered into John 17 and learn to stand up in the image and likeness of Christ Jesus. For the True Church to find time to enter into the ministry of loving power and holiness that we find for us in leaning about Christ Jesus through the eyes of HIS disciples and apostles. We can no longer afford the pride to agree to disagree. In love we must learn to work together with the Holy Spirit to find loving unity in GOD’S TRUTH for real freedom. John 17:20-24 (Should read the whole prayer for context.)
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 (POWER) 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.”
My hope and prayer is that some may find the time, in humility, to submit to being a part of this our LORD’S only recorded personal prayer by John the beloved. We know it will come to pass.
Yours, in HIS great Love and wonderful Grace and Mercy, Ken<>< www.Trinity-Aloha .org
A female Humpback that had become entangled in a spider web of crab traps and lines. Weighted down by hundreds of pounds of traps that caused her to struggle to stay afloat, with hundreds of yards of line rope wrapped around her body, tail, and torso, and a line tugging in her mouth, she was a miserable victim indeed. Thankfully, a fisherman spotted her just east of the Farralone Islands (outside the Golden Gate) and radioed an environmental group for help. Within a few hours, the rescue team arrived and determined that she was in such bad condition the only way to save her was to dive in and untangle her, a very dangerous proposition. One slap of her enormous tail could kill a rescuer. Undaunted, these brave souls worked for hours cutting her free. One guy who was cutting the rope out of her mouth says he saw her eye following him the entire time. Finally, they were able to free her. The moment she was freed, the divers say she began to swim in joyous circles! She then came back to each and every diver, one at a time, and nudged them, gently –she thanked them all. Some said it was the most incredibly beautiful experience of their lives. (The Church (people) of Christ Jesus need the same freedom in the Holy Spirit.) www.WorthyMinistries.com
