SANCTIFICATION        “WORTH CONSIDERING”   11/18/21   From Ken Smith<><

Through our Creator’s absolute foreknowledge He knew about what lucifer would do in his defection prior to his creation.  But for the sake of Michael and Gabriel to also have freewill and  to remain faithful it had to be allowed.   Freewill alone makes Love valid.  And freewill must have options or it is not free.  The same for humanity, Those who choose the light are included in the ultimate family of GOD.  Those who choose the darkness will remain in darkness for eternity, Jude 13.

Our Creator also knew that Adam would choose for darkness and that Jesus would choose for the light.   In Eden there was only one NO! tree, all of the others were yes and amen.   Adam eventually in pride and rebellions went for the only NO tree.  The first prophesy concerning the redemption came in Gen.3:14-15 when God said to lucifer, ““And I will put enmity (open hostility) Between you and the woman, (Rev. 12:3-5)  And between your seed (offspring) and her [ a ] Seed;  He (Jesus)  shall [fatally] bruise your head,  And you shall [only] bruise His heel.”

You may not realize it but our Creator put Adam in charge of earth, in the beginning, and he was King Adam, (Gen. 1:28.   And at the tree of good and evil, lucifer talked Eve and Adam into being in obedience to him.  And the world become sold into sin and us in Adam with it.   We were mostly born and grew up in darkness but Jesus came to turn on the lights brightly.  So now we have a choice on our own to change our citizenship or not.  I put a tract together on light, let me know, I will send you 15 scriptures on why we should choose to go for the light citizenship.

So if we choose to really make Jesus, the Messiah, our LORD then we change our citizenship and begin on the way of Sanctification to become like our LORD.  Being in the “WAY” is not just a meeting in a building once a week that is called, Church.   Actually the CHURCH is all of the souls on earth who have made Christ Jesus, the Messiah, really 100% their LORD.  All who are seeking to know the will of GOD for themselves through the Holy Spirit as per the Word of God are in the process of becoming eternal members of the family of God..

Proverbs 16:7   “When a man’s ways (דֶּרֶךְ – deh-rech) please the LORD, he maketh even his enemies to be at peace with him.”    If HE, that is, the Lord, makes even [a man’s] enemies be at peace with him. All we have to worry about is making sure that our ways are pleasing to the Lord and He will do the rest!   The word “deh-rech” in Hebrew, is ‘way’ in the verse above. Derech can also mean journey or path. When our path is straight, and God is the focus of our journey, then our ways will please Him and He will make even our enemies be at peace with us. So let us rededicate our lives to the Lord’s WAY or PATH and see Him bring us the victory.

Before the followers of Jesus were call Christians they were call people of the “WAY.”   That is,  people who closely followed Jesus in His teachings.   Our little community in Hawaii is in Kealia and means, “The Way”   Every one who wants to go from Kona to Volcano the short way must drive by our door.  Just like everyone who wants to go from earth to heaven at death must be on the “WAY” that Jesus came to share with us.  And the only way to be sure you are on “That WAY” is to study the teachings of Jesus for yourself from His eye witnesses in the Holy Bible.  You can not trust the teachings of men as there are many false teachers have gone out into our world teaching things which are false.  If fact, some denominations today teach that their teachings are better than the ones found in the Bible.   Many demolitions today are only small boxes built out of man’s ego to replace Jesus as really being our personal LORD.   They make the ministry look good but are mostly powerless and not a church at all, they are only a man made religion lifting up themselves.   Jesus came and gave us an example of being a servant with love and power and real help for the poor and lost.  He taught all of us  to follow HIM.  He made of Himself no reputation.  So beware when someone tries to lift themselves up in your eyes by what they say about themselves or how they look.  Read Isaiah 52:13 through chapter 54:17 (If you don’t get your Bible and read this, you will be missing out.)  

With our very small fledgling ministry in Kealia we are finishing up on making space for about 12 souls who are 100% interested in Sanctification and it getting ready for the jump to light speed..   So far, at this point in time there is just 2 of us living here and 7 in fellowship.  Making a decision to go 100% with scripture in context and by God’s Grace to become like Jesus with the help of the Holy Spirit.   This means a lot of dying to our Adamic nature and the carnal flesh that we inherited from Adam.  Romans 7 & 8.   There is a good bit of Holy Scripture to digest as to this direction.   And it is not, at all,  going to be easy to die to the things of this world.   But a cup must be empty if it is to be filled by the Holy Spirit.   The Holy Spirit must have the keys to all the rooms to our whole house in order to complete HIS ministry of Sanctifying us and perfecting us in Christ Jesus, (Eph. 4:11) to be like HIM.  (1 John 4:17.)   We, who call ourselves Christian are created in Christ Jesus as a new being and taught to overcome this world, “1 John 5:5-9.  And not only that but our Creator plans to use us to remove lucifer from all the authority that was given to him by Adam.  Ezek. 28:18  &  Rev. 12:11.   The True Church of Christ Jesus is to become HIS “Rod of Iron” with which HE rules this earth and the universe.   I good study, if you are up for it: Psalm 2:9,   Rev. 2:27, 12:5, 19:15.  And to go home without spot, wrinkle or blemish in the power of the Holy Spirit.

Many, even folks that are today in our churches, have changed what Jesus taught to be more comfortable for the flesh of Adam to stay and do business as usual and still believe it to be OK.  After all, “ No one is perfect,”   is a usual remark along with, “Who do you think that I am, Jesus Christ?”  You can only learn to do what you focus 100% on doing.

But we know that none of us have really measured up to being perfected nor in being like Jesus Christ as yet.   But that is not the issue.   The issue is that Jesus is the center of the target and we are in school to learn to be like HIM.  We are in training to learn to do what HE did in humility and loving obedience.  The resources that Jesus used on earth are also available to us if we will take the time to find HIS Truth and learn how to use them.  If we are truly a Christian (slave of Jesus) then there is no excuse for cutting classes.   And it is in humility, truth and loving obedience that we as a CHURCH have the joy of sharing HIS loving truth in power.  If we have the love, will and faith to learn to do so.  I was informed the other day that the electric cells in an electric eel can collective put out an 860 volt shock.   Wonder what the CHURCH could do?

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

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