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

STUFF & THINGS,   “WORTH CONSIDERING”   2/20/21   From Ken Smith<><

This catch all word is used 766 times in the AMP Bible Translation and covers a lot of territory.    In the Old Testament, Gen.1:24,   it first use of things is to share about “creeping things” being created.   So why would God be interested in that?  Cleanup Crew?   Lord knows how messy things would become down here.

In Matt. 4:9 lucifer offer everything to Jesus if Jesus would only become #2 man.
In Matt.  5:11 Jesus warns us about responding negatively to evil things said about us because of HIM.   I get that a lot, If only I was a better Christian I would fix their problem what ever that is.  Of course God is the resource, not me.  They need to learn to fish for themselves rather than be begging for a fish.  But we still get caught in the crossfire.

In Matt. 5:18     Jesus confirms to us to be in touch with Bible Prophets as all things will be fulfilled.

In Romans 8:31,   Apostle Paul writes:  What then shall we say to [all] this? If God is for us, who [can be] against us? [Who can be our foe, if God is on our side?]  32 He who did not withhold or spare [even] His own Son but gave Him up for us all, will He not also with Him freely and graciously give us all [other] things?  33 Who shall bring any charge against God’s elect [when it is] God Who justifies [that is, Who puts us in right relation to Himself? Who shall come forward and accuse or impeach those whom God has chosen? Will God, Who acquits us?]

And in Rom.10:14-16, Paul tells us to go share the Good News of God’s Love and forgiveness.   But how are people to call upon Him Whom they have not believed [in Whom they have no faith, on Whom they have no reliance]? And how are they to believe in Him [adhere to, trust in, and rely upon Him] of Whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without a preacher?  15 And how can men [be expected to] preach unless they are sent? As it is written, How beautiful are the feet of those who bring glad tidings! [How welcome is the coming of those who preach the good news of His good things!]  16 But they have not all heeded the Gospel; for Isaiah says, Lord, who has believed (had faith in) what he has heard from us?  ( The word Preacher really apply to every one who can talk.  It is not about the office of a pastor at all.  It is the sheep that bares the lambs, not the shepherd.)  Do you have a living testimony of what Jesus has done for you.  Then you should be willing to share that testimony when the door is open to do so. 

Rom. 12:15-17 gives us the guidelines for doing just that.   “Rejoice with those who rejoice [sharing others’ joy], and weep with those who weep [sharing others’ grief].  16 Live in harmony with one another; do not be haughty (snobbish, high-minded, exclusive), but readily adjust yourself to [people, things] and give yourselves to humble tasks. Never overestimate yourself or be wise in your own conceits.  17 Repay no one evil for evil, but take thought for what is honest and proper and noble [aiming to be above reproach] in the sight of everyone.   So if this kine of a word search is interesting for you go to:     And continue to get acquainted with Bible in how to look up subjects that your are interested in and quickly go though what the Bible had to offer on the subject.  It is a wonderful was to check out God’s Truth and keep us from a lot of painful paths into no where.  

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