Scripture of the Week by JoBeth Kested

Scripture for the week of December 14, 2014

JoBeth25God showed how much he loved us by sending his one and only Son into the world so that we might have eternal life through him. This is real love—not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as a sacrifice to take away our sins. 1 John 4:9-10 (NLT)

How would you feel to find out that someone else had to die in order for you to live? This time of year we celebrate the birth of Jesus forgetting why He came into this world. God sent Jesus, His only son, as a innocent baby; an extravagant demonstration of His great love for us and He would grow up to die on our behalf on the cross. No matter how hard we try, we are never able to work hard enough, to be good enough or to love God enough to deserve the sacrifice Jesus was willing to make for us. He not only paid the price for the forgiveness of our sins, but that we will have His hope for eternity with His comfort, peace and love through joys and sorrows in this life. In this Christmas season of shopping, parties and family gatherings for sharing gifts, let us not forget the reason for the season and the greatest gift of God’s love for us in Jesus.

 

Prophetic Decree and Decoration by Beth Auman

Merry Christmas from the Auman Family

aumanChristmas

Christ means The Anointed One – and mas means more -More of the Anointed One that is what we wish you when we wish you a Merry Christmas.

Here at the Auman home – we would like to share our prophetic declaration and decree with you, in the form of prophetic decoration. All of the Glory to the Eternal One and His Son – Jesus Christ – Our Messiah.

Can you see our decree and declaration in our prophetic decoration?

Jesus holds our time in His hand –He was there when earth and time began. We have given Him all of our time and entered into His cycle of seasons. This is the month of Kislev and we have celebrated Rosh Chodesh with Him. The first of the month – the new moon. It is the month that the world celebrates the Holy birth of Jesus.  At the Auman’s home it’s always a good time to celebrate Jesus and here is our prophetic decree and decoration:

Jesus was born of the Virgin Mary and lived a sinless life.

Jesus is and will always be the best gift ever given. He is the reason that we give gifts to others.

Jesus is our Salvation, Healer, our Provision, Victory, Defense and Shalom.

Jesus is the light of the world.

Jesus is the head of the church and coming back for a spotless bride.

Jesus is the great intercessor and our victory.

Jesus is our Praise, the fulfillment of all prophecy.

Jesus is the Word of God, Alive and Eternal.

Jesus is the greatest Servant of all time – He is the Servant candle that gives light to others.

Jesus gave His life on the cross, rose again and defeated death, hell and the grave.

Jesus shed His blood for each of us – all who will believe and receive Him as LORD.

Jesus rose again and gave the Holy Spirit so that we can walk in His power and authority – apply His blood over others so that the blind see – the deaf hear – the lame walk  – the broken hearts are mended and the dead are raised.

Jesus is our soon coming King.

Jesus is alive –not dead and ready to give you His voice – His voice is the shofar –are you listening for His sound? When he returns for His spotless bride – We will hear His sound and until then we are to be His shofar in this earth – So declare and decree Jesus this Christmas receive Him in your heart and declare Him to be LORD of your life– have More Anointing and keep Christ in Christmas and remember that Jesus is not offended at Happy Holiday’s because He was conceived at Hanukkah – His conception was Holy – He is Holy and December – (Kislev) is a very Holy month..actually each month is Holy – because God is Holy.. So Celebrate Jesus everyday – He paid a very costly price for us to be able to Celebrate HIM.

Celebrate HIM because “I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is and who was and who [a]is to come, the Almighty.” Revelation 1:8 New American Standard Bible (NASB)

.

Biblical References:  Genesis 1 – Revelation 22

Blessings and Shalom -365 from the Auman’s

Merry Christmas – More and More and More of the Anointed One and His Anointing because He deserves celebration – every single day, in His name and sealed by His Holy Spirit. Amen and Amen

Scripture of the Week by JoBeth Kested

Scripture for the week of December 7, 2014

JoBeth24

“Do not call to mind the former things, or ponder things of the past. Behold, I will do something new, now it will spring forth; will you not be aware of it? I will even make a roadway in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.” Isaiah 43:18-19 (NASB)

Have you ever watched high flying acrobats swinging back and forth in a circus? It is so breathtaking to watch them release one swing in order to fly toward the next swing and safety. It seems in these verses that God is telling us that we must let go of the former and past things we are clinging to, so we can be free to reach for the new things He is preparing for us that we can’t even see yet! He is able to do sudden things like showing us the way when we feel lost and to even provide what we need in desperate places. Lord, help us let go of anything we are holding on to that keeps us from reaching for the new and blessed things you have prepared for us. Help us to find your roadway in our wilderness and Your river of life in the desert. Yes, Amen.

Cold or Hot by Beth Auman

Hot or ColdThe LORD see’s everything – He knows each of us inside and out. He would prefer that we are cold or hot but never lukewarm. Those who are Lukewarm will be vomited out of His mouth.. Yuck!

Have you ever been hurt by the words of another? Perhaps sometimes we really should never know what someone really feels about us.

Recently I was called an extremist and the comment  pierced my heart at first.

I have learned on my journey with the LORD to run to HIM immediately when I am wounded. As I brought this wound before the Lord – He  illuminated this scripture to me. Revelation 3:15-16  He ministered to me I am (Hot and Passionate) and that He made me that way.  My passion (zeal) for Jesus, all people, places and things that He has so graciously placed within my delegated rule of authority are my heart and my treasures.  I am passionately and fervently Hot and passionate about all that He has given to me to love. Yes, I am an extremely hot and passionate person, I steward all that He has given me with great care and responsibility. Through this part of my journey I have learned that Jesus is pleased with me, He Loves me, just the way that I am.

I have submitted this unto the Lord, as He instructs us to in (James 4:7 The Voice (VOICE)So submit yourselves to the one true God and fight against the devil and his schemes. If you do, he will run away in failure.)  As  I have submitted myself unto the Lord on this matter – I felt compelled to share this with each of you.  Many times those fiery darts shot at you by the devil come from those who you love. When this happens we have a choice to submit it to the Lord or carry it around as a bitter wound. Bitter wounds that are not carried to the LORD will eventually block your relationship with Him – You won’t be able to hear Him clearly because the wounds get in the way.

If someone has allowed the devil to use their mouth against you and wounded you – run to the throne room and submit yourself unto the Lord – tell Him – the Lover of your soul, your Salvation and Redeemer about it and ask Him to reveal the truth to you according to John 8:31-32 and make you free.  He will lovingly tell you the truth and His freedom will wash over you.

Don’t miss your opportunity to forgive the one by whom the offence occurred and submit yourself unto the Lord, fight against the devil and his schemes.  The devil will truly run away in failure every time. Learn how to do this well and remember that Jesus knows your works – He knows you inside and out and He wants you to be hot and passionate about all of the people, places and things that He has placed within your delegated rule of authority. Steward all that He has given you with hot passion and remember that a good steward’s number one responsibility is to protect that which has been given to them.  Protect each and everyone, and everything to the best of your ability with all of the hot passion that you have to offer.

Blessings and Shalom and Love beyond measure.

Thank you for reading.

From my heart to yours.

Scripture of the Week by JoBeth Kested

Scripture for the week of November 30, 2014

JoBeth23But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope: The steadfast love of the Lord never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness. “The Lord is my portion,” says my soul, “therefore I will hope in him.” Lamentations 3:20-24

Do you ever struggle to find your faith to trust God in the midst of overwhelming problems; especially when you don’t understand the Lord’s purposes in the midst of it all? The scriptures before these verses, by the Prophet Jeremiah, describe in great detail his sufferings and that he feels like God caused it all. He is not afraid to talk to God about his hurts and difficulties. Then he reminds himself of God’s love, mercies and faithfulness; how amazing that even though the circumstances have not changed, Jeremiah is able to declare with renewed hope that the Lord is all he needs. Take your list of problems to God today and may you be encouraged with new hope remembering The Lord’s unshakeable love, unending mercies and great faithfulness to you always.

Scripture for the week of November 23, 2014

JoBeth22 Give thanks to the Lord, for He is good. His love endures forever. Give thanks to the God of gods. His love endures forever. Give thanks to the Lord of lords: His love endures forever. To him who alone does great wonders, His love endures forever. Psalm 136:1-4 (NIV)

What would you answer if asked what is your greatest need or desire? Most would acknowledge the deepest longingly our hearts is to be loved. We all long for and cherish the loving relationships of family and friends. We are encouraged in these scriptures to give thanks to The Lord, God of gods, and Lord of lords because His love endures forever. In this Psalm, there are twenty-six declarations that His love endures forever after verses extolling the majesty of God’s creation, His awesome wonders, His mighty power and extravagant mercy. During this season of Thanksgiving we often remember and share the many things we have to be thankful for. It is also good to be reminded how blessed we are and to give thanks that The Lord God Almighty is good, He does great wonders and His steadfast love for us endures forever!

Scripture ofthe Week by JoBeth Kested

Scripture for the week of November 16, 2014

Jobeth-16For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. And you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. I will be found by you, says the Lord… Jeremiah 29:11-14a (NKJV)Have you ever felt like you messed up so bad that you are beyond forgiveness and undeserving of God’s love? I know that sometimes it feels like God is playing Hide and Seek and not to be found; but, these verses assure that God really does hear our prayers when we cry out to Him and that He longs to reveal Himself and His goodness to us. Though it may be hard to fathom, the truth is, God harbors no thoughts of evil against us and is always thinking of how to show us His plans for our future with peace and new hope. Be encouraged in this promise to you today that you will find the Lord when you pray and seek Him with all your heart
