SEASONS     “WORTH CONSIDERING”    7/21/20     From Ken<><

Today’s Scripture
“…For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water: whosoever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had…”  (John 5:4, KJV)

He’s Not Limited by Seasons
There was a crippled man who had been lying by the pool of Bethesda for thirty-eight years. The people knew when it was the season for the angel to come. This man knew that was his window of opportunity to get well. One day Jesus came and said to him, “Do you want to get well?” I can imagine the man was confused. It wasn’t the right season for the angel to come. But Jesus said to the man, “Get up, pick up your bed, and walk.” Instantly the man was healed.  Don’t be surprised when God shows up and you aren’t expecting it. God likes to break the rules, so to speak, to do things that we can’t explain. You don’t see any way, the odds are against you. God doesn’t have to wait for the training, for the boss to like you, for the loan to go through, for the economy to improve. He controls the universe. He’s not limited by seasons.

A Prayer for Today
“Father, thank You that You’re not limited by seasons, by closed doors, by disappointments, or by my preconceived ideas of how You can work. Thank You that You do things out of the box that I’m not expecting. I’m looking for Your surprises in  In Jesus’ Name,  Amen.”

Ken’s Comments,
Of course in John 5:4 Jesus ignored the season and healed the man.   There is never a season for healing, God is always ready to heal, problem is the matter of faith.   Both individual and collective unbelief can keep healing from happening.  God does not want us to be sick or even to die before we are a healthy 120 yrs. of age as per Gen.6:3.   Our problem is learning to to the maintenance in both thought and deed.  We are what we eat and we become what we think we are.  In our own words, the scriptures teach us, is life and death.  We are in a sick world full of sick thoughts.  Even our entertainment is full of sick stuff.  So I enjoy the concept of being free.  Of getting out of the box.  Of exploring the Holy Scriptures for myself.  And I am not alone, there are many books out there that I am finding that feel the same as I do about finding how to be totally free in God’s Truth and Freedom.   A freedom that avoids the lies of sin and bondage.

We have been created to learn how to become like Jesus.   My most enjoyable moments were when I was close to the LORD and filled with the Holy Spirit.  Felt like walking on clouds….  And some of the stupid sin stuff I did grew weeds for me in my life for many many years.

So let’s think about SEASONS, In Ecclesiastes 1:10 we are taught about times or seasons: So what kind of a season are we in now?  In 1 Thess. 5:1-3 we find these words: “5 But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.  2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.  3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.  Also 2 Thess. has much to say on the subject that would be wise to study.  Personally it seems to me that the season of the Gentiles is near over and that we may be quickly heading into Matt.24, Mark 13 and Luke 21.   These chapters are all the same account prophetically of the same coming events or seasons on the world.  The season is quickly changing right before our eyes.  In our country with all of the borrowing and virus issues it seems we may be on a fast track to learning what is really important in our lives and what is not.  Of course, for me, at my age, I would rather burn out that rot out any day. 

One of the signs of the season is found in Romans 11:24-26: “For if thou wert cut out of the olive tree which is wild by nature, and wert grafted contrary to nature into a good olive tree: how much more shall these, which be the natural branches, be grafted into their own olive tree?  25 For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in.  26 And so all Israel shall be saved: as it is written, There shall come out of Sion the Deliverer, and shall turn away ungodliness from Jacob:”   So one of the seasons after the Age of the Gentiles is the gathering of the Messianic Jews, which is now happening in Israel.  20 years ago they were estimated to be around 5,000, in 2017 they had grown to 20,000.  in Israel alone.

So some of the signs that are noted in scripture for the next season are: earthquakes, famine, pestilence (virus), exit from the Rev.3:14 church where Jesus is outside, wars and rumors of wars, Peace Movements,  Jews back in the land and Jews beginning to find Jesus as LORD.   Read:  Matt. 24-25.  Might be thinking about putting on some very white linen soon for the jump to light speed.  My paper on: “The Coming of the King.” is available upon request for free.

Yours, in HIS great love and wonderful grace and mercy,   Ken<><

 Worthy Brief <;      In a new survey, the Pew Research Center found that 72% of Americans said God plays an important role in their life, and 67% said prayer also plays an important role. Worldwide, the poll showed that 61% of people say God plays an important role in their life.   The Chinese government is reported to have told poor Christian families they must give up their faith or lose state aid, CBN News reports. In a report published Monday, the Bitter Winter human rights group said: “People on social welfare [have been] ordered to worship the Chinese Communist Party (CCP), not God.” This latest action follows longstanding persecution of Christians by the communist regime in China.  (This is the bottom line of Socialism/Communism..  Our Nov. voting will be for or against Socialism/Communism.)
