The Good News Is by Beth Auman

Recently, I was praying and asked the Lord to please give me fresh Revelation regarding His Word. We must all come to the realize that we will never know everything and must continue asking Abba to teach us by His Holy Spirit, through His Word.

I ask Him where to begin and He called to my heart Matthew 7:23  (NASB)  23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness.’

I was a little taken back at first. I asked the Lord, what it was that He wanted to reveal to me about this Scripture. I said, LORD that is the worst thing that anyone could ever hear and I do not want to hear Jesus speak this to me or anyone that I know.

Here is the Revelation.  The worst thing that you will ever hear in your life is not that you have a disease, that someone does not love you,  that you are fired from a job or anything else. The absolute worst thing that you could ever hear is Jesus say Matthew 7:23 to you.

Each and every one of us will stand before Jesus at the end of our time here on earth. He will either welcome us or make this statement to us. That is the Worst thing that anyone could ever hear.

Then the Lord said back up a verse –

Matthew 7:22-23  (NASB) 22 Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many [a]miracles?’ 23 And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness.’

Jesus was not talking to those who did not know who He was. He was speaking to people who thought that they knew Him.  Some that actually thought the life that they were living and the work that they were doing was of Him. But it wasn’t, they were deceived. They thought that their place in Heaven was secured eternally. But they actually were not going there at all.

I know in my heart that He wanted to reveal to me how that would feel to hear those words. The Worst thing that I could ever hear. He wanted me to know that nothing in life compares to receiving Jesus as Lord. He wanted me to convey to all of you that no matter when He comes back, receiving Him as Lord is imperative. Making sure that you know Him, have relationship with Him, spend time with Him. That’s the most important thing that you could ever do with this life that you’ve been given by God.

Truly, I treasure my relationship with Jesus and I am thankful for the revelation of Matthew 7:23.

I’m asking the Lord for a greater measure of faith than ever before. Faith for the Salvation of everyone that I have ever known and will ever meet. There is an urgency in my heart, a fire to share the Good News of John 3:16 with people. My heart cries out for all of those who are deceived, Lord Please Save them. What is my part.

Is this your heart’s cry? If so please ask Abba what Scripture that He would like to reveal to you. He will speak to your heart and you open your Bible and read it out loud to Him. Go deeper, get closer and know Jesus more. Ask Him for the Salvation of everyone that you have ever known and ask Him if there is anything that you can do, say or pray, declare or decree on their behalf. Then do that. Because there are people out there that think that they know the truth, but they don’t and eternity is a long long long time to spend not with Jesus in Heaven. All roads do Not lead to Heaven. You must specifically ask Jesus Christ to be your Lord and truly with your heart believe that He is the only begotten Son of God.

The Good News is that we can repent for believing a lie and choose to believe the truth. It’s the most simple thing. I  believe in Jesus. Do you? Are you one that I’m praying for?

Just say, Lord, I’m so very sorry for believing in something other than you. I choose to believe in You Jesus.  I repent, please Forgive me of my sins. Come into my heart, I crown You LORD of my life. I am a believer in You Jesus. Amen

John 3:16  (NASB) 16 “For God so loved the world, that He gave His [a]only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life.

Eternal Life. Eternity is a long, long, long time.

 

Blessings and Shalom

Love Beyond Measure,

Scripture of the Week by JoBeth Kested

Scripture for the week of July 15, 2018


“Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30 NKJV

Have you ever felt exhausted from carrying the heavy weight of discouragements, problems and fears with a longing to rest your weary soul? Sometimes it can feel like the weight of the world is all on our shoulders and there just doesn’t seem to be any relief or help to be found. In this scripture Jesus invites us to accept His yoke that initially may look too restrictive and too hard to do. To be yoked with Jesus requires accepting our insufficiencies and acknowledging our need for a Savior. As we learn His ways and experience His loving mercy with gentleness kindness we discover that His yoke is easy and the burdens are far lighter. We’ll find the comfort and rest we long for as we allow Him to pull our heavy loads, to carry the weight and make our paths straight. Cast your cares on Jesus today (1 Peter 5:7) and God will supply all your need according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus (Philippians 4:19).

Scripture for the week of July 8, 2018

The Lord watches over you—the Lord is your shade at your right hand; the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night. The Lord will keep you from all harm—He will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore. Psalms 121:5-8 (NIV)

Have you ever prayed and prayed, yet still wondered where the Lord is when you are facing difficult trials, feeling vulnerable, unprotected and all alone? Three times in these verses it is declared that the Lord is watching over you. This type of watching is like secret service agents that are intensively guarding, protecting and defending you; which is so much more than just keeping an eye on you! These scriptures tell us the Lord stands guard over every detail of your life; protecting you from ALL harm and able to defend you in ALL your coming and going. May we find peace in the assurance of the covering shade of the Lord’s presence over us in the oppressive heat of our days and the warmth of His love in the cold darkness of our nights. Thank You, Lord for Your persevering presence with us now and forevermore! Amen!

Scripture of the Week by JoBeth Kested

Scripture for the week of July 1, 2018

Remember the former things, those of long ago; I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like me. Isaiah 46:9 (NIV)

Have you heard the saying,”You can’t know where you are going unless you know where you came from”? When we remember the stories of those before us that overcame great trials, handicaps, poverty, and wars we are encouraged that we can also overcome the trials before us. Likewise, God instructs us in this scripture to remember the former things. In the midst of our current needs and busyness, have we forgotten the answered prayers and miracles we’ve experienced or learned in the past that will inspire our faith to trust God today? Twice God declares that He alone is God and there is none like Him! Let us remember there is no other God whose very nature is love, extending mercy, offering peace, forgives sin, heals diseases, saves the lost, wipes away all our tears and knows the number of hairs on our heads! Yet, He is the King of Kings, Lord of Lords and commands the angelic armies of heaven. There is no other God like our God!

Friends by Beth Auman

Jesus said that Greater Love has no one than this, That one lay down his life for his friends. John 15:13

A friend is a person who loves you no matter what. A friend is one who will always tell you the Truth and lead you to a closer relationship with Jesus.

Proverbs 17:17 (CJB)17 A friend shows his friendship at all times —
it is for adversity that [such] a brother is born.

Abba had you in mind when He created your friends. He knew exactly what you would walk through in this life and who you would need.

WOW! He IS Amazing and He created friends that would lay their lives down for you. Thank YOU LORD!

Jesus was the best friend that He ever created and He is there for you right now, today and throughout all eternity. He Loves you and all you have to do is rest in HIM. HE literally laid His life down for you.

Talk to HIM. He is a great listner and Abba wrote an entire Bible that includes every single problem that you’ll ever face.It is a literal road map (Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth) to navigate through this life.

Remember that God created you to walk through with your friends too. So be the best friend that you can be. Pray with and for your friends. Be there for them in good times and bad. Love your friends and follow after the LORD with all of your heart and lean on your best friend Jesus. He will lead you and guide you into all truth. He will help you find the friends that He has chosen for you. Because He is the TRUTH and your BEST FRIEND.

Blessings and Shalom to each of you in Jesus Name.

Scripture of the Week by JoBeth Kested

Scripture of the week for June 24, 2018

For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is His love for those who fear Him; as far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us. Psalm 103:11-12 (NIV)

Have you ever heard someone say, “I love you to the moon and back” as an expression of their love? God declares the magnitude of His love for us if as there is no end to the height of the heavens above the earth! But, what does it mean to fear the Lord? It simply means great reverence and awe for the Almighty-Omnipotent-Creator-Ruler God of the universe and to acknowledge that He is also the Lord over us individually, as well. When we receive the gift of salvation through the sacrifice of Jesus, our Father God extends His lovingkindness that removes the consequences of our failure to meet His standards of holiness and perfection as far from us as the east is from the west! How wonderful it is to understand that east and west can never ever meet! May we choose the fear of the Lord and experience God’s extravagant love for us that is over the rainbow, beyond the moon and to the height of the heavens!

Are Your Borders Secure By Beth Auman

Each of us has been given a delegated rule of authority by God to secure the borders of territories and borders for ourselves as well as individuals that we are to secure and then to keep secure. These assignments are our portion and we are to keep our eyes on Jesus, our Salvation, to rule and reign on earth through Him. We are to take our place, seated with Him in Heavenly places to stand our watch over our assigned territories to see what He will say. He gives us guidance and direction daily. He will light our path.

The Lord assigns us each a border; a boundary in which to rule and reign with Him for His Kingdom purposes, to intercede over, to keep free of anything that would try to come into and take our land. To intercede for someone is to secure the border as the LORD brings wholeness to their fragmentation. In order to watch over and intercede over another’s life, our own borders must be secure. We must allow the LORD to bring wholeness to the wounds of our fragmentation and to secure our own borders first before we ask Him to increase our territory or there will be the fragmented praying for the fragmented and praying amiss!

We are to be well formed arrows created by the LORD that hit the target every single time. This can be accomplished, it is surely possible, but we must each yield to the LORD’s process first for personal VICTORY.

Oh, LORD in Heaven, Creator of the universe, please look upon each of us and allow us to see our fragmentation for what it is; to know we can only see clearly through the Blood of Jesus Christ shed for us. LORD, may we each find healing and freedom through the Blood of Jesus Christ from the broken, fragmented places within ourselves first and then be empowered to intercession for the fragmentation within our assignments secondly. LORD, we yield to and apply Your Blood upon every area of fragmentation within us. We ask that you open the eyes of our understanding so that we may see from Your perspective our fragmentation and yield to Your plan for wholeness through Your strategy for wholeness in our lives. LORD, we are willing to see the Truth that sets us free John 8:31-32 and yield the broken places within our being to You. We receive Your wholeness, for Your healing in us today. As we are healed from our fragmentations we will step by step secure our borders and we will see the fiery path in front of us that we are to walk. We realize LORD, that Your assigned  paths are narrow and we draw Your blood line around us. Keep us LORD, on Your well lit fiery path and keep us secure in You so that we may ask for the wholeness of others; to see their fragmentation yielded unto You for the strategy for their VICTORY. In Jesus name, Amen.

The LORD only calls us into a battle to be VICTORIOUS! As Pastor Robert Heidler says,“When we were born again we were born on a battlefield. We must understand Spiritual Warfare.”We must know this and see this in order to step into any battle, to move with His strategy for Victory. We must see and hear what He is saying because ultimately the battle is not ours, it is God’s 2 Chronicles 20:15. Jesus Christ said on the cross that “It is Finished.John 19:30 (The Voice) When Jesus drank, He spoke: Jesus: It is finished! In that moment, His head fell; and He gave up the spirit.

Then three days later Jesus arose from the dead. He WON! He is VICTORIOUS!! And through His shed Blood we have the key to our victory. But, we must allow Him to heal our fragmented selves to be whole through Him.

We are to take our seat in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. Ephesians 2:6 Ask Him for His strategy and only speak what He says to speak and do what He says to do; nothing more, nothing less. Speaking only what we see Him saying and doing only doing what we see Him doing. John 5:19 (NASB) Therefore, Jesus answered and was saying to them, Truly, truly, I say to you, the Son can do nothing of Himself, unless it is something He sees the Father doing; for whatever the Father does, these things the Son also does in like manner.

With Jesus as our example, we are to do the same. Seek to hear what the LORD says and do what He shows us He is doing. We are to take our seat in Christ Jesus in Heavenly Places allowing Him to make us whole and then do whatever He says to do and say whatever He says to say to secure the borders of our assigned territories.

When the Lord give us assignments to watch over and pray, He is actually giving each of us a new opportunity to win the victory by His grace and the power of His might to increase the borders of our assigned territories. When we win that victory we are to maintain that boarder or territory through prayer and intercession as He leads. I will stand upon my watch, and set me upon the tower, and will watch to see what He (The Lord) will say unto me… Habakkuk 2:1 (KJV)

Watchman what do you see? If God brings you to it, He will bring you through it. He is giving you an opportunity to increase your territory. As the Lord’s watchmen, we are to watch over our borders, not those of our neighbors. We are to keep our eyes on Him. As long as we operate from within Him, led by the Holy Spirit, seated in heavenly places with Jesus, we can expect to be victorious. If we veer from our place within Him, adding any of ourselves, we will miss the mark every time. Don’t operate outside the authority that is yours in the Blood of Jesus Christ. By the healing power of His blood allow Him to heal all the wounds of fragmentation in your life and to make you whole. As declared in Isaiah 53:5, He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities and by His stripes we are healed. Hear His word of instruction to you, receive the healing that is yours, then operate from His place of VICTORY! BE VICTORIOUS! Thank God, then, for our Lord Jesus, the Anointed, the Liberating King, who brought us victory over the grave. 1 Corinthians 15:57 (VOICE)

When we take our place, seated in heavenly places in Christ Jesus and ask for our territory to be enlarged, our borders to be increased, doing what He does and saying what He says, He assigns us opportunities to assist others who are fragmented and not yet seated in Him.  He will direct us in our prayers and gives us the power to secure their boarders. Thus, He grants our request enlarging our delegated rule of authority and His Kingdom is extended on earth.

1 Chronicles 4:10 (NASB) Now Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that You would bless me indeed and enlarge my border, and that Your hand might be with me, and that You would keep me from harm that it may not pain me!And God granted him what he requested.

Matthew 7:7 (NASB) Ask, and it will be given to you; seek, and you will find; knock, and it will be opened to you.

Thy Kingdom come, Thy will be done on earth as it is in Heaven. Matthew 6:10.

We can see clearly, seated in heavenly places through the Blood of Jesus. Remember the LORD see’s everything, He alone knows all things and He alone answers prayers. There is always a strategy. The cross was the strategy that God used for our salvation and victory over sin and death. Many don’t understand this, but they need too. If we take our place in Christ Jesus and do our part in obedience to Him, territories for His Kingdom will be taken and we will be named among those who are the called, chosen and faithful.

Victory for the Lamb 14 These will wage war against the Lamb, and the Lamb will overcome them, because He is Lord of lords and King of kings, and those who are with Him are the called and chosen and faithful. Revelation 17:14 (NASB)

And they overcame him because of the blood of the Lamb and because of the word of their testimony, and they did not love their life even when faced with death. Revelation 12:11 (NASB)

 

Scripture of the Week by JoBeth Kested

Scripture for the week of June 17, 2018

The Lord is my strength and my song; he has given me victory. Songs of joy and victory are sung in the camp of the godly. The strong right arm of the Lord has done glorious things! Psalm 118:14-15 (NLT)

Are you one of those people that can’t carry a tune and prefer to sing in the shower where no one else can hear? Sometimes we just need to make a joyful noise to the Lord anyway because He is worthy to be praised! This Psalm was most likely written by King David, who was known as a mighty warrior of Israel accomplishing many great exploits in the name of the the Lord. He humbly declares in these verses that it is the Lord’s strength that has given him the victory and therefore the reason to worship and sing His praise. He proclaims that the godly can also sing songs of joy and victory when they gather together to celebrate because the strength of the Lord has accomplished glorious things. May you also sing the songs of rejoicing and triumph because of the mighty things the Lord has done and continues to do in your life as you daily trust in Him. Amen!

God Be Gracious To Us and Bless Us by Beth Auman

Many things are going on in our daily lives. We all wake up in the morning with a choice that  is more valuable than perhaps we comprehend.

Recently The LORD has revealed to me how important it is to yield. Yield our day, seeking Him first. The moment that I open my eyes, I say Good Morning to the Lord and invite Him into my day. I yield my day to Him.

Psalm 67 is one that He directed me to recently and my heart just jumped because it furthers what He is revealing about the Aaornc Blessing – Numbers 6:22-27. I want His name over me every single day.

My heart is crying Let the Peoples Praise YOU! I pray for Salvation among all Nations.

Yielding our day is including Him. We all have prayers, supplication, intercesson before the LORD. If we do not yield and invite Him into our day first, then we are full of pride which comes before a fall. I choose not to fall. I desire His Victory! Jesus Christ IS VICTORY. He is my Victory and I invite Him into my life first. I don’t want one single thing to transpire in my life that does not include Him.

What is your hearts cry before Him? Are you tired of falling? If you are ready to WIN then yield your day and seek Him first. Psalm 67 is a great place begin. Read it in the morning when you wake. Invite the LORD into your day and yield to what ever instructions that He gives.

Don’t be full of pride – include Him first. Yield your life to Him and He will arise over you and His Word will come to pass in your life.

Isaiah 60:1-3 (NASB)

A Glorified Zion

60 “Arise, shine; for your light has come,
And the glory of the Lord has risen upon you.
“For behold, darkness will cover the earth
And deep darkness the peoples;
But the Lord will rise upon you
And His glory will appear upon you.
“Nations will come to your light,
And kings to the brightness of your rising.

There are Nations out there that need our yielding, our prayers and His Prophecy. We are either going to be who He created us to be or be full of pride and fall.

I choose to arise each morning and shine, I choose Lord to walk in Your light. I choose to yeild each morning, inviting You into the day that You have made for me and I choose You.  John 14:6 Jesus *said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.

 

Jesus IS LORD and He is VICTORIOUS!

Love Beyond Measure and Shalom.
