PROMISED LAND, “WORTH CONSIDERING” 6/19/21 From Ken Smith<><
Of all of the people that left Egypt with Moses, only 2 from that whole generation actually entered into the Promised Land. Remember what Jesus taught: “Straight and narrow is the way to Eternal Life and very few find it.” So there will be but very few who are on the same page and headed into the Promised Land of the Kingdom of God. Not that we have it together, but we are undivided and 100% committed to it. We are learning not to be diverted by Adam’s world, flesh, pride or the demons. Not that there will be no battles to fight nor flesh to die, Rom.8:13. But at this time and place they are dealing with their own hypocrisy and giving it a death blow. That we become really holy inside and outside in HIM. That there is no room left for hypocrisy, deceit, guile or manipulations of the Truth of God.. Matt.23:13-14. God said it, I believe it, that settles it, is where we want to be. What I use to love about ministering to the Hippies in the 70’s was what you see was what you got. There was little or no guile in them for the most part.
If in the space of true humility & obedience the Holy Spirit can open up new understandings of God’s Truth for those who seek, ask and knock. And HE can teach us what we need to know to grow up in HIM and to help each other. Our filters for spiritual truth to dump the fictions of this world are with each other a little different and as we work together we can better filter out the world’s fiction from the Truth of God. Then the pure reflective silver of God’s Truth will be much easier to see his reflection in us as we become like Jesus or the Holy Spirit. This is, of course, is the original vision in the creation of man, Gen.1:26. Our loving Creator wants to create a loving family like HIM who, by choice, will love righteousness and peace. We are all invited but so very few want to give up the world and go.
Jesus: ” I assure you and most solemnly say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone [just one grain, never more]. But if it dies, it produces much grain and yields a harvest. 25 The one who loves his life [eventually] loses it [through death], but the one who hates his life in this world [and is concerned with pleasing God] will keep it for life eternal. 26 If anyone serves Me, he must [continue to faithfully] follow Me [without hesitation, holding steadfastly to Me, conforming to My example in living and, if need be, suffering or perhaps dying because of faith in Me]; and wherever I am [in heaven’s glory], there will My servant be also. If anyone serves Me, the Father will honor him.” John 12:24-26
As for the vision for the TrueVine Farm, we now have an acre+ in two lots on Mamalahoa Hwy. in Kealia, HI. We call the new addition “The Firehouse” as a home burned down on the property about 5 years ago and also because we would like the fire of GOD to light it up with Holy Fire. It came complete with all the cement floors, water meter and cesspool and we are now in the process of getting materials together for a 16′ x 33′ room as an outreach ministry facility and House Church. Also both properties back to thousands of acres of Kingdom Land which means no one living there, just jungle, clear to the top of Mauna Loa from the back property line.
We have moved 2 – 10′ x 20′ Costco tents onto the cement floor and set up a flush toilet with a new water connection with a hot shower next on the list. It could be a nice free place to camp out if you were ever headed this way to spend time in the Captain Cook area for snorkeling and exploring, a wonderful touch of Historic Hawaii here. You can Google the “Firehouse” property at 85-4582 Mamalahoa Hwy. Captain Cook, HI 96704 and also for the TrueVine Mini farm: use 85-4554 if interested. At this time we have 2 empty bed rooms and a tent and are looking for some serious help on the farm. Trade Board & Room for 24 hrs of work per week. County bus stop a few doors south and for $2. go most anywhere on the Big Island of Hawaii in AC Comfort.
