Scripture of the Week by JoBeth Kested

Scripture for the week of September 3, 2017

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?” God instructs us in this scripture of the importance to remember the former things; twice declaring that He alone is God and there is none like Him! It is helpful to recall the stories of faith from those that have gone before us, overcoming great trials, handicaps, poverty and wars. In the midst of our current needs and busyness, have we forgotten the answered prayers and miracles we’ve experienced or learned about in the past that can inspire our faith to trust God for our needs today? Let us remember there is no other God whose very nature of love, extends mercy, offers peace, forgives sin, heals diseases, saves the lost, wipes away all our tears and knows the number of hairs on our heads! He is the King of Kings, Lord of Lords, Commander of the Angel armies and yet, is also our loving Heavenly Father. There is no other God like our God!

Clean Hands and a Pure Heart by Beth Auman

My hearts cry each morning, noon and night is, “Oh LORD, cleanse me from all unrighteousness. That I may have clean hands and a pure heart.” The primary desire of my life for the access won by Jesus’s Victory to the throne room of Adonai to be open at all times. So that I can come before Him, receive His Blessing and declare, decree and establish His Word in this earth. Walking in the Victory that Jesus His Son has won.

It is my desire to hear Him clearly, see Him clearly and see all situations from His perspective.

Psalm 24 says Who may go up to the mountain of Adonai? Those with clean hands and pure hearts. Who don’t make vanities the purpose of their lives or swear oaths just to deceive.

Isn’t that interesting. We must all ask ourselves this question. Have I made vanities the purpose of my life or sworn oaths to deceive?

In my own life, I repent often, quickly and ask Adonai to search my heart if I even for one moment think that I have stepped out of this boundary that He has set before me.

Because I want His Blessing and His Justice and in every circumstance in my life, I want Him to Save me.

Many times, we as human beings point the finger at everyone and everything refusing to take responsibility for our life circumstance and lay the blame on others. We must all be willing to ask Adonai to search our hearts and cleanse us from any hidden fault. Be willing to allow Him into the dark places that we even try to hide from Him.

Today, my prayer for each of you is that you will bare yourself before Adonai and ask Him to search your entire being. Whatever He puts His finger on within you that you will ask Him to cleanse you from all unrighteousness. So that you can come before Him with clean hands and a pure heart.

Ask Him to define your purpose and lay down vanities and never swear oaths to deceive.

After you repent open your arms wide to Adonai in Jesus Name and receive His Blessing and His Justice. Allow Him to save you through His Son – Jesus. Walk out His purpose for your life and continue doing this until you walk in your Eternal destiny in heaven. Don’t ever stop.

In Jesus name, Amen

Love You All Beyond Measure.

Beth

Scripture of the Week by JoBeth Kested

Scripture for the week of August 27, 2017

And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus. Now to our God and Father be glory forever and ever. Amen. Philippians 4:19-20 (NKJV)

Do you have difficulty believing that God really cares about any of the pressing needs you are currently facing? First of all, this verse profoundly declares that our God supplies ALL our need! But, if we are to understand that the doorway of His provision is in the glory of Jesus we may need to ask what is the glory? Biblically this often refers to the manifestation or the reality of God’s presence with us. Remember, one of the names of Jesus is Emanuel which means God with us. Therefore, there is a wealth of God’s provision for us as we grasp that Jesus is with us; our Prince of Peace, Wonderful Counselor, Friend of Sinners and our Savior. He is real, present and available to us in every circumstance today and everyday to meet ALL our needs. With renewed faith in His love for us, let us give worship, praise and glory to our Father God forever and ever. Yes, Amen!

MOURN by Lee Gossett

MOURN by Lee Gossett

MATTHEW 5:4 Blessed are those who mourn, For they shall be comforted (NKJV). The Message translation reads, “You’re blessed when you feel you’ve lost what is most dear to you. Only then can you be embraced by the One most dear to you” (MSG).

Beloved friends, when you’ve experienced deep pain at this level, God is the ONLY source of comfort. I believe God’s heart grieves for those in sin who refuse to repent or attempt to justify it. I’ve cried so many tears in my life over sin – the guilt and shame over things I’ve done that can never be erased from MY mind. In God’s eyes, I am no longer condemned, but justified and forgiven for ALL. It’s only by God’s grace and comfort of the Holy Spirit that I can be humble and comforted in these moments.

PROVERBS 28:13 People who conceal their sins will not prosper, but if they confess and turn from them, they will receive mercy (NLT).

Here are a few examples of God’s mercy:  Truth that I’ve shared that has deeply wounded people I love. Deep hurts I’ve carried for many years that I can’t trust anyone with but God, Heartache over lost things that most people have never experienced – maybe today, there are some of you mourning in similar or different ways. One early morning, I was in the floor in the midst of an “ugly cry.” There was no way any one person could comfort me in this moment of “mourning,” BUT GOD. And, He did.

2 CORINTHIANS 7:10 For Godly grief, produces a repentance that leads to salvation without regret, whereas worldly grief produces death (ESV).

Dear friends, the Holy Spirit lovingly caught me in that one moment and held me in a way that I’d never experienced before. He told me how much HE loved me. He also told me that what was happening was something only “I” could go through, but that through the pain, He would be glorified.

2 CORINTHIANS 1:4 He comforts us in all our troubles so that we can comfort others. When they are troubled, we will be able to give them the same comfort God has given us (NLT). And, in the midst of this season, I knew my relationship with God would grow deeper and more intimate. That’s exactly what’s happened in my life. Since that morning, I recommitted my life to Christ, and I will serve Him regardless of the cost because of the “price” He paid for ME. 2 CORINTHIANS 5:21 For God made Christ, who never sinned, to be the offering for our sin, so that we could be made right with God through Christ (NLT).

Scripture of the Week by JoBeth Kested

Scripture for the week of August 20, 2017

“Therefore do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’ For after all these things the Gentiles seek. For your heavenly Father knows that you need all these things. But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. Matthew 6:31-33 (NKJV)

Do you ever get caught in the every day worries of home repairs, increasing grocery costs, what to wear on that special occasion or other emergency demands? We are exhorted in these verses to not worry about any of these things and reminded that our Daddy God knows and cares about all our needs. Verse 26 in the same chapter states: “Look at the birds of the air, for they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not of more value than they?” How easy it is to struggle and strive trying figure it all out or to fix everything ourselves and forgetting how precious we are to our miraculous and loving God. So, be encouraged to turn your focus from your worries to seek first the blessings of God’s righteousness and goodness upon your life with the assurance that He is more than able to “supply all your needs according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus” (Phil 4:19). Thank You, Lord!

It Will Not Rise a Second Time by Beth Auman

While studying The Word of The Lord recently I received further Revelation regarding one of my life verses.

I have been reading “The Book of Mysteries,” by Rabi Jonathan Cahn. I highly recommend it. Reading each day has truly been a gift from Abba. I’m learning so much and drawing closer and closer to Jesus.

Today The Lord revealed Himself in regard to His ministry from Capernaum Or in Hebrew Kaphar Nachum. He revealed to me and I received this deep within my heart.

Nahum is the Book where The Lord spoke to me and brought so much deliverance, forgiveness, healing, restoration and it is where He gave me my first smooth stone. The one Word that fell the enemy in every situation. Revelation that He equipped me with. This is in my tool box now to use against the enemy as He leads me to, and it works every single time. Because He is faithful and I’m willing and obedient.

Nahum 1:9 CJB What are you planning against Adonai? He is making an end of it; trouble will not arise a second time.

Nahum 1:9 NASB Whatever you devise against the Lord, He will make a complete end of it. Distress will not rise up twice.

The Lord said this to me: All evil intended for His own people is aimed truly at Him.  He said, I have dealt with this calamity that has risen against you completely and it will not come upon you a second time.

This is a Breaker Anointing – the Anointing from the Lord that breaks the enemies power in the life of God’s own people in such a way that it can NEVER come upon them again! Never!

If you are tired of going through the same thing over and over, then receive His Word today. Identify your IT. What is the devil inflicting upon you that must STOP today? What in your life has happened over and over?  Step forward and receive His Word today. Stop allowing the devil into your life and allow the LORD to bring an end to your suffering. He is well able and He Loves you.

The Lord delivered me from my strong enemy and gave me His Word that my strong enemy would Never come upon me again, in this manner. I have spoken this over my life and the life all those whom Abba has guided me to from that day to this and He has always been Faithful to perform it.

Today I learned about the mystery of Kaphar Nachum and how Abba chose this place of Capernaum for Jesus His Son to dwell and minister from. Where those who were sick were healed. Those oppressed and bound were freed, delivered and restored. Jesus did every form of miracle in Capernaum, (Kaphar Nachum).

He delivered me, healed me and restored me there too, because it is the place where God chose for Jesus to minister from FIRST.

I Declare this over you. Today, embrace His Word. According to Nahum 1:9 God has dealt with your calamity and it shall not rise a second time in the strong and mighty name above all names Jesus Christ. Amen

Scripture References: Matthew 4:13, Matthew 8:5, Matthew 8:5, Mark 2:1, Luke 4:31

I speak Blessings and Shalom over you in Jesus name
Love Beyond Measure.

Walk Worthy of Your Calling by Beth Auman

While going through some old documents recently, I found the letter of Thanks that I wrote to the Lord on the day that He called me. My heart was quickened to Ephesians 4:1-3  and a flood of gratitude rushed through me. I believe that the Holy Spirit renewed and restored something within my heart. Something within my heart that was weary.

We all have those times when the world knocks the wind out of our sails (or so the world thinks)… But GOD. He always has a plan and I now have a clear focus and have locked my eyes on the Lord. My only desire is to see from His perspective the goal that He has set before me.

Do you remember the day that He called you? I pray today that you will truly remember that moment in time and allow Him to refresh, renew and restore you to that amazing moment in time. Where there has been heartache, difficulty, tribulation, fear may that all be washed away by the blood of Jesus Christ our Lord. In order that you may walk in a manner worthy of the calling with which you have been called, with all humility and gentleness. With patience showing tolerance for one another in Love being diligent to preserve the unity of the Spirit in the bound of peace. (Eph 4:1-3).  Amen

This is my prayer for you all today and please remember that those He calls, He equips. So walk, focused on Him and the goal that He has set before you. Nothing else in this world really matters. You have the Victory through Jesus. You just have to walk it out.

Lord, we hear Your call afresh today and declare and decree Your Word over our lives and over the delegated rule of Authority given to us in Jesus Name. Amen

Hebrews 13:20-21 (NASB)

20 Now the God of peace, who brought up from the dead the great Shepherd of the sheep [a]through the blood of the eternal covenant, even Jesus our Lord, 21 equip you in every good thing to do His will, working in us that which is pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be the glory forever and ever. Amen.

In Jesus Name Amen and Amen

 

Love Beyond Measure.

Scripture of the Week by JoBeth Kested

Scripture for the week of August 13, 2017

And having chosen them, He called them to come to Him. And having called them, He gave them right standing with Himself. And having given them right standing, He gave them His glory. What shall we say about such wonderful things as these? If God is for us, who can ever be against us? Romans 8:30-31 (NLT)

In your childhood memories were you ever the unwanted and last one chosen when teams were picked to play a game? Were you not invited and left out of some special event or overlooked for a promotion you worked so hard for? What a comfort to read in these verses that God has chosen us and has called us to come to Him. He can make all things right and He frees us from all wrongs, sorrows and sins. We are invited to stand close to Him in His righteousness! God goes on to declare that He extends to us His glory; the joy of knowing His favor, goodness and presence is with us at all times. Lord, Jesus, touch the wounded places in our hearts and the sorrows in our memories with the power of your unconditional love and to know that we have been called to stand in your righteousness and glorious grace. Our God is for us! Amen!

Scripture for the week of August 6, 2017

“The breaker goes up before them; they break out, pass through the gate and go out by it. So their king goes on before them, and the Lord at their head.” Micah 2:13 (NASV)

Is there a situation in your life where you are desperately in need of a breakthrough? There are several things the Lord reveals to us about Himself in this scripture. He is the Lord of the Breakthrough! He leads and goes before us. He stands between us and our enemies in times of trouble. He is The Almighty God that can break open any gates of captivity; the Lord of the Hosts of Heavenly armies and is able to breakthrough any of our enemies plans against us! He is able to make the crooked places straight and make the rough places smooth on our behalf. The Lord God of all Heaven and Earth is our protector, defender and provider King and He desires for us to know Him as our God Who breaks through! Ask God to reveal Himself as the Lord of the Breakthrough from any and all hindering circumstances in your life today!
