Love is First by Beth Auman

stock-photo-19058763-three-red-rose-stemsLove is first and foremost a Gift. A Gift of the Spirit. A Gift to be shared and spread all over the entire World.  Just ponder for a moment that God so Loved us that He gave His Best Gift that we may choose and live eternally with Him.

John 3:16 (VOICE) 16 For God expressed His love for the world in this way: He gave His only Son so that whoever believes in Him will not face everlasting destruction, but will have everlasting life.

Be strengthened church body by the Gift of Love that God has given to us through the giving of His Son and Holy Spirit. Walk in Love and let’s all make an effort to learn more about what Love is, how Love acts, who Love Loves and embrace the Gift.

Personally I Love the Voice Translation of the Bible and have included the entire LOVE chapter. I hope and pray that you will read it and receive a deeper Revelation of the Gift of LOVE. That we will all be Transformed by the renewing of our minds and as a result, we will be able to discern what God wills and whatever God finds good, pleasing, and complete.  I Bless you all in the Strong Name of Jesus and hope that you will Love Well.

Romans 12:2 (VOICE)Do not allow this world to mold you in its own image. Instead, be transformed from the inside out by renewing your mind. As a result, you will be able to discern what God wills and whatever God finds good, pleasing, and complete.

1 Corinthians 13 (VOICE)

Gifts of the Spirit, which are intended to strengthen the church body, often divide the body because members of the church elevate those who possess the more visible gifts over those whose gifts function in the background. In fact, this is the very problem facing the Corinthians. So while talking about the importance and function of these gifts in chapters 12 and 14, Paul shifts his focus to the central role love plays in a believer’s life in chapter 13. Love is essential for the body to be unified and for members to work together. Members of the body that are very different, with little in common, are able to appreciate and even enjoy others because of the love that comes when a life is submitted to God.

13 What if I speak in the most elegant languages of people or in the exotic languages of the heavenly messengers, but I live without love? Well then, anything I say is like the clanging of brass or a crashing cymbal. What if I have the gift of prophecy, am blessed with knowledge and insight to all the mysteries, or what if my faith is strong enough to scoop a mountain from its bedrock, yet I live without love? If so, I am nothing. I could give all that I have to feed the poor, I could surrender my body to be burned as a martyr, but if I do not live in love, I gain nothing by my selfless acts.

Paul boils it all down for the believers in Corinth. Religious people often spend their time practicing rituals, projecting dogma, and going through routines that might look like Christianity on the outside but that lack the essential ingredient that brings all of it together—love! It is a loving God who birthed creation and now pursues a broken people in the most spectacular way. That same love must guide believers, so faith doesn’t appear to be meaningless noise.

Love is patient; love is kind. Love isn’t envious, doesn’t boast, brag, or strut about. There’s no arrogance in love; it’s never rude, crude, or indecent—it’s not self-absorbed. Love isn’t easily upset. Love doesn’t tally wrongs or celebrate injustice; but truth—yes, truth—is love’s delight! Love puts up with anything and everything that comes along; it trusts, hopes, and endures no matter what. Love will never become obsolete. Now as for the prophetic gifts, they will not last; unknown languages will become silent, and the gift of knowledge will no longer be needed. Gifts of knowledge and prophecy are partial at best, at least for now, 10 but when the perfection and fullness of God’s kingdom arrive, all the parts will end. 11 When I was a child, I spoke, thought, and reasoned in childlike ways as we all do. But when I became a man, I left my childish ways behind. 12 For now, we can only see a dim and blurry picture of things, as when we stare into polished metal. I realize that everything I know is only part of the big picture. But one day, when Jesus arrives, we will see clearly, face-to-face. In that day, I will fully know just as I have been wholly known by God. 13 But now faith, hope, and love remain; these three virtues must characterize our lives. The greatest of these is love.

 

I speak the Lord’s Blessing over each of you today and His Shalom. Love well, Love Deeply and most of all Receive His Neverending, Unceasing, Beyond Measure, LOVE. He is LOVE. Jesus is LORD and He Loves you!

Love Beyond Measure

Living Breathing Light by Beth Auman

john-125Jesus The Word remained ever present with the Eternal Creator. His speech shaped the entire cosmos.

All things were birthed in Him. His breath filled all things with a living, breathing light. A light that thrives in the depths of darkness, blazes through murky bottoms. It cannot and will not be quenched.

The Eternal gave each of us free will to Believe. To choose Jesus as our Lord. To be a part of His family. This is a choice that each and every one of us must make during our one opportunity to be on this earth. Man has ONE life to live. Please do not be deceived about this because if you choose the deception that all roads lead to God or that you have multiple lives– you are telling the Creator who spoke the entire cosmos into being that His way is of none effect and that you totally and completely reject Him and His chosen Way.

His Word says that His breath filled all things – this means that the ability to see and hear Jesus the Light of the World already exists within your being. Your choice is really light or darkness.

Please know thought that His light thrives in the depths of darkness, blazes through murky bottoms and It cannot and will not be quenched.  You can choose to be a part of His Living Light and live Eternally with Him or suffer eternal darkness and separation from Him.

O Eternal, today I pray over each and every person reading that they would choose Your Word. Your Light cannot and will not be quenched. May each one know that Jesus was ever present with you as You created the entire cosmos. Believers Believe 100%. May each one choose to believe that Your breath filled all things including their own being with Your Living Breathing Light. May Your Light be ignited within each of us right now – Light Be – Truth Be – in Jesus name.

Love Beyond Measure.

Worthy are YOU LORD by Beth Auman

Is this your heart’s cry today? It sure is mine.

My Praise chimes in with the Thousands of Messengers: Worthy is The LAMB that was slain to receive authority and wealth and wisdom and greatness and honor and glory and praise.

He is worthy and I give Him the sacrifice of my praise daily. It is my prayer that you do too.

Revelation 5:12  (VOICE)12 Thousands of Messengers (with a great voice): Worthy is the Lamb who was slain. Worthy is the Lamb to receive authority and wealth and wisdom and greatness And honor and glory and praise.

Love you all Beyond Measure.

God Empowered Moments – GEM’s

Welcome to G E M’s – God Empowered Moments.

We all have them.

At times we are vividly aware of our GEM’s  as they occur and other GEM’s become more vivid upon reflection of the event.

How many times have you been Empowered by God to Overcome in a trial or situation?

Faith Testimony has been my assignment from God to share my own testimony and to encourage others through His Word – Prayer, Intercession and Encouragement.  As Faith Testimony has grown God has brought faith filled writing partners on board to share and encourage others.

We are embarking on a new adventure. Sharing the GEM’s of our faith filled Overcoming Ones. Those who have been through challenges in life and overcome by the blood of the lamb and the word of their testimony.

The Lord has revealed to me in vivid clarity His Power to overcome by the Blood of the Lamb Jesus. He has vividly shown me how we can walk through the door of the shared testimony of God’s goodness.  His Power is released when we testify of His Goodness toward us with others. God will do for others as He has done for you and it is our full intention to give Him all of the Praise, Honor and Glory for all of the Good things that He has done in our lives. We truly have Overcome by the Blood of the Lamb and it is our prayer that you Overcome too.

Our Testimony of Jesus Christ is the Spirit of Prophecy and we must share so that others can be made whole (Shalom), The blind will see, the lame will walk, the lepers cured, the deaf hear, the dead raised and the good news preached to the poor.

Matthew 11:5 (VOICE)Tell him you have seen the blind receive sight, the lame walk, the lepers cured, the deaf hear, the dead raised, and the good news preached to the poor.

Isaiah 35:4-5 (NASB)Say to those with anxious heart,“Take courage, fear not.Behold, your God will come with vengeance;The recompense of God will come,But He will save you.”Then the eyes of the blind will be opened And the ears of the deaf will be unstopped.

The Testimony of Jesus is the Spirit of Prophecy.

Revelation 12:11 (NASB)11 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 [a]when faced with death.

Revelation 19:10 (NASB) 10 Then I fell at his feet to worship him. But he *said to me, “Do not do that; I am a fellow servant of yours and your brethren who hold the testimony of Jesus; worship God. For the testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.”

We look forward to sharing our G E M’s with each of you and we pray that you will walk through the Door of our Testimony of Jesus Christ the Spirit of Prophecy and be Empowered to walk in Faith and Victory.

This page is dedicated to Jesus Christ Our LORD. If you would like to share your G E M’s with others please submit them for review to pray4all@triad.rr.com.

We will review and send appropriate permission to publish on the web documents to you.

Blessings and Shalom to each of you who have been encouraged by our G E M’s. We Love the LORD with all of our hearts and look forward to hearing how He has Empowered you to Overcome. We know that the Testimony of Jesus Christ is the Spirit of Prophecy and we are Door Openers. We hope that you have walked through the Door (Jesus) and Overcome whatever trial you are walking through. Remember He Won the ultimate Victory already – all you have to do is walk in it.

Love Beyond Measure.

From all of us to all of you.

John 10:9-11 (NASB) I am the door; if anyone enters through Me, he will be saved, and will go in and out and find pasture. 10 The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I came that they may have life, and [a]have it abundantly. 11 “I am the good shepherd; the good shepherd lays down His life for the sheep.

Psalm 25:10 (NASB)10 All the paths of the Lord are lovingkindness and truth To those who keep His covenant and His testimonies.

1 Kings 2:3 (NASB) Keep the charge of the Lord your God, to walk in His ways, to keep His statutes, His commandments, His ordinances, and His testimonies, according to what is written in the Law of Moses, that you may succeed in all that you do and wherever you turn,

My Thankful Song by Beth Auman

a-thankful-heart-01

Truly, we should all be Thankful every single day. We should begin and end our day with a song of Thankfulness and Gratitude to The Eternal. He gave His best so that we could live in Eternity with Him – Jesus – His only begotten Son.

John 3:16 (VOICE)16 For God expressed His love for the world in this way: He gave His only Son so that whoever believes in Him will not face everlasting destruction, but will have everlasting life.

Our Thankfulness begins and ends with Jesus because only through His sacrifice can we have Eternal life. This is one thing that no matter what is going on in our lives – we can all be Thankful to Him for Jesus our Savior and Eternal Life.

Today is a day of self evaluation:

Is the Eternal the source of your strength and the shield that guards you?

Have you truly learned to rest and trust in Him?

Do you trust that He is sending help?

Is this why your heart is singing? Are you opening your mouth to praise Him and allowing your Thankful song to rise?

See, we were made to Praise the Lord to be Thankful to Him. Thankfulness begins and ends with Him. He is the place where Thanksgiving comes from. We would not have such an emotion at our disposal had He not given it to us. We were all made to give Him Praise, Honor and Glory. He gave Jesus – His only begotten Son so that we would have a choice to give Him all Praise.

Psalm 150:6 (VOICE)No one should be left out; Let every man and every beast— every creature that has the breath of the Lord—praise the Eternal!   Praise the Eternal!

My prayer for each of you during this beautiful Season of Thanksgiving is that you will begin to allow your Song of Praise rise within you. May it bubble out of your mouth and rise to His ears. May you release your sound of Thanksgiving to the Eternal because you have a unique sound that He is waiting to hear. May you become more aware that He is the source of your strength and the shield that guards you. May you learn to rest in Him and trust in Him as your song of Thanksgiving and Praise rise within you as you open your mouth to Praise Him in Jesus name Amen and Amen

Love each and everyone of you Beyond Measure.

I Bless each of you and speak His Shalom over each of you.

Jesus is LORD.

Beth R Auman.

The Word of The LORD for Today – Be Encouraged

john8-31-32Can You Hear His VOICE Today?

Are you His Disciple? Do you Hear The Truth?

When I awoke this morning He led me to read Psalm 85 aloud to Him and I receive His Holy Word with gladness in my heart.  This is His plan.

Can you hear His voice? Are you listening? Will you receive His Truth and Word with gladness and joy in your heart?

My prayer for you today in Jesus Name is that you will read this Psalm aloud to Him and allow His Voice to speak to your heart.

 

 

Psalm 85 – The Voice

O Eternal One, there was a time when You were gracious to Your land;
    You returned Jacob’s descendants from their captivity.
You forgave the iniquity of Your people,
    covered all of their sins.

[pause][a]

There was a time when You restrained all of Your fierce wrath,
    when You cooled Your hot anger.

O God of our salvation, bring us back again—as You did before—
    and put away Your anger toward us.
Will You be mad at us forever?
    Will You continue to be angry with our children and theirs?
Will You not bring us back to life once more
    so that we, Your people, will find joy and pleasure in You?
O Eternal One, show us Your unfailing love;
    give us what we truly need: Your salvation.

I will hear what the True God—the Eternal—will say,
    for He will speak peace over His people,
    peace over those who faithfully follow Him, [but do not let them abuse His gift and return to foolish ways].[b]
Without a doubt, His salvation is near for those who revere Him
    so that He will be with us again and all His glory will fill this land.

10 Unfailing love and truth have met on their way;
    righteousness and peace have kissed one another.
11 Truth will spring from the earth like a plant,
    and justice will look down from the sky.
12 Yes, the Eternal will plant goodness in the earth,
    and our land will yield great abundance.
13 Justice will come before Him,
    marking out a path, setting a way for His feet.

This is our Declaration today Lord – we receive Your Word – Your Salvation is near for those who revere You and You will be with us again and Your glory will fill this land.

J   E   R    USA  L   A  M      (We are in The Word – we are a part of His Plan and His glory will fill our LAND). Amen

We receive Your unfailing love and truth – Your righteousness and peace and Your justice looking down from the sky.

Yes, We receive your planting goodness in the earth and our land will yield great abundance.

Justice will come before You, marking out a path, setting a way for Your feet. In The mighty and matchless name of Jesus Our LORD Amen and Amen

Scripture of the Week by JoBeth Kested

Scripture for the week of March 20, 2016

JoBeth05

For the Lord is a great God and a great King above all gods, in whose hand are the depths of the earth, the peaks of the mountains are His also. The sea is His, for it was He who made it, and His hands formed the dry land. Come, let us worship and bow down, let us kneel before the Lord our Maker. Psalm 95:3-6 (NASB)

Have you ever had your breath taken away by the beauty of an ocean sunset, stood in awe of snow capped mountains or thrilled by the delicate display of wild flowers in a meadow? Elohim, the Creator God, the most masterful of all artists, reveals Himself to us in the minuscule and extravagant details of His creation. God displays His majesty in the loftiness of mountain peaks and the splendor of ocean depths. We are humbled by His sovereignty expressed in the brilliant display of lightening and the blustering winds of powerful storms. His mercies that are new every morning are revealed in every glorious sunrise. The Lord tenderly captivates our hearts in the loveliness of butterfly wings, the fragrance of roses and the awe of a sleeping baby. Then, wonder of all wonders we are invited to call Him Father because He loves us! Come, let us worship and bow down, let us kneel before the Lord our Maker.
