Truth 1.
1.    The quest for loving humility and obedience so as to share HIS TRUTH.
2.    The Firm Foundations for GOD’S Truth
3.    Deceit in the so called truth of the World.   The lie concerning the quest for stuff.
Truth 2.
4.    How do I know that the Bible (66 writings) contains God’s Truth?  How can I be sure?
Some very powerful preachers of God’s word tell us that ever word in the Bible, especially the King James translation is anointed of God.  And in some ways, that is helpful but in other ways not.   Moses wrote the first 5 books we have in our Bible about 1500 years after the fact and we have some practical issues to consider.   Why were the plants created on the 3rd day and the sun and moon on the 4th day?   Why was Adam told to replenish and subdue if he was the only one there?   Where was the land of Nod for Cain to move to and who were the people who might kill him.  What was the Son’s of God and the daughters of men all about and the Giants.   Moses called it a day when we know that it takes over 13 million light years for the light to get to earth from the farthest star that we can see.   And a lot more,   I had to work all of this out to even start to accept the Bible as valid to use as a foundation for my faith.  Of course, God can do anything.

Basically what got to me into being secure with the Bible was the prophesies and knowledge about physics that tells us a lot about our world hundreds of years, even thousands, before we came to that understanding for ourselves.   That the earth is round, hung on nothing and made of parts so very small that they can not be seen. Also that in God’s Creation there are different time dimensions.   And in the end the works of man will be burned up with fire so that nothing is left of his limited occupancy.  Of course with the amount of hydrogen stored in our oceans, earth could easily become like a sun as Peter shares with us in.  2 Peter 3:10

So there are about 300 prophesies in the Bible with many concerning the coming of the (Lamb of God) the Truth of God and Light of God in human form so we could get to know HIM.   These are Old Testament prophesies that cover just about everything that Jesus did from birth to death and much of what was prophesied would be impossible for anyone to make happen.  Psalm 22, Isa. 53 & 61 with Ezek. 28:18 are very strong prophesies for me in the verification of Christ Jesus as LORD.  And like the Centurion said at the Cross, “No man ever spoke like this man.”  All of his disciples, that we know about, went to their death in support of what they believed and what  they wrote as a living testimony in our New Testament.  None of them changed their minds.

And for me, support for God’s Truth works for me.   In the 70’s with the hippies I saw the Holy Spirit do such supernatural things in HIS great love for their search for HIS truth.   I could write a big book on how the Holy Spirit confirmed HIS Truth with signs following.  But then I got caught up in the Traditional Theater Church Form of worship and ministry and lost it.   Now at near 90 I am being encouraged by the Holy Spirit to write more to be helpful to those who are still children at heart and called to be the Elect of God.  And if you are still interested we need each other if we really want to see Jesus, lifted up among us to draw the world to HIM in the power of the Holy Spirit of Truth.   TRUE Repentance, God’s Truth and the Love of Souls is always confirmed by the Holy Spirit in Power.   Jesus Christ came in the balance of God’s Love, Holiness & Power.  When the Church is completed, it will be a match for Christ Jesus, her LORD….and be full of the Holy Spirit in Power just as HE was and is in response to heart faith.

OBEDIENCE:   If you are a student of the New Testament you already know that  obedience  is the ultimate certification of a  Biblical Faith for  salvation.   We are given the opportunity on earth to choose to learn about love, faith and obedience.  No matter where you go in the Bible, Obedience to the Word of God as given us by the prophets and our LORD Jesus is the true test of faith.   “He that endures to the end shall be saved.”    Romans 8:13, “…for if you are living according to the [impulses of the] flesh, you are going to die. But if [you are living] by the [power of the Holy] Spirit you are habitually putting to death the sinful deeds of the body, you will [really] live forever. 14 For all who are allowing themselves to be led by the Spirit of God are children of God.    

BIRTH PAINS:  Ezekiel 38 & Matt.24:   Putin’s trip is perplexing and troubling for a variety of reasons. First and foremost, Russia and Iran are shunned by numerous nations, most notably the United States. These isolated countries share in that dynamic as well as in their quest for power. Beyond that, Putin’s trip seems to indicate closer ties between the allies, as he met with Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei and Iranian President Ebrahim Raisi before convening with Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, according to CBN News.    It’s also impossible to ignore the fact Putin’s visit to Iran comes right after President Joe Biden visited Israel, a nation Iran has repeatedly threatened. Biden and Israel addressed concerns over Iran—a longstanding global issue for which no real solution seems to be on the table.    Take that along with the other global catastrophes and events unfolding, and there’s much to discuss. The world is at a precarious juncture, which has led many pastors and end-times experts to openly ponder whether the biblical prophecies about the end of days are starting to unfold.   Greg Laurie, pastor of Harvest Christian Fellowship in Riverside, California, reminded Faithwire earlier this year of Jesus’ words in Matthew 24 that warn of wars, rumors of wars, plagues and other such elements in the lead-up to the end of days:

Inflation:   In 1928 prior to the Great Depression, the signs were then not as bad as today.   Seems we are headed into a 2nd Great Depression like in 1929 so might want to do some prepping for it.    After the latest CPI report was published in July showing the official inflation rate stood at 9.1%, some economists backtracked the numbers using the old metrics and calculated that the real inflation rate stands at around 18%, meaning that inflation is nearly twice as bad as Biden’s administration is admitting it is.  And the reason the Federal government is hiding the true inflation rate is because Congress and the Federal Reserve want to hide their own culpability in the economic catastrophe that’s being created.   That’s because as long as inflation appears to be much lower, most people won’t notice it.   It’s only when the general public looks back over several generations  that  people can see just  how  little  their money takes them, compared to how far it took their parents or grandparents.   It was only after the Federal Reserve printed around $5 trillion dollars between 2020 and 2021 that today’s real 18%  inflation is now out of control.  In 1964, the only new car I ever bought was a top of the line Ford Thunder Bird for $4,300.00.   Had every possible convenience in the price.   2022 price now: $50,000.00

Yours in HIS great love and wonderful Grace & Mercy, Ken <><     www.OhanaChurch.Life
