Scripture of the Week by JoBeth Kested

Scripture of the week for April, 2024
By JoBeth Kested

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!

Scripture OF the Week by JoBeth Kested

Scripture for the week of March 31, 2024
By JoBeth Kested

Jesus… asked his disciples, “Who do people say the Son of Man is?” They replied, “Some say John the Baptist; others say Elijah; and still others, Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” “But what about you?” he asked. “Who do you say I am?” Simon Peter answered, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.” Matthew 16:13-17 (NIV)

Throughout the last 2000 years the question is still being asked, “Who is Jesus?”. Many are still saying that he was a good man or spiritual teacher, while others say he was a prophet. In these verses Jesus goes on to commend Simon Peter for declaring the truth that He is the Messiah. Jesus acknowledges here in this scripture and many other verses that He is the Son of God and also declares in John 14:6 that He is the Way, the Truth and the Life; that no one comes to the Father accept through Him. We don’t get the option to believe that Jesus is just a good man, a teacher, or one of many prophets. We must face the fact that He is either a liar, a lunatic or the Lord as He says He is. Jesus is still asking each of us the question, “Who do you say that I am?” This Easter morning, do you know Him as the promised Messiah and the risen Lord resurrected from the grave? To all who believe, He is still showing The Way, The Truth, and The Life. He Is Risen, He Is Risen Indeed!

Scripture of the Week by JoBeth Kested

Scripture for the week of January 7, 2024

“Do not be afraid, for I have ransomed you. I have called you by name; you are mine. When you go through deep waters, I will be with you. When you go through rivers of difficulty, you will not drown. When you walk through the fire of oppression, you will not be burned up; the flames will not consume you. For I am the Lord, your God, the Holy One of Israel, your Savior. Isaiah 43:1b-3a (NLT)

As we enter this new year are you facing rivers of difficulties or fires of oppression and fears for the future? How wonderful to hear the Lord proclaim at the beginning of these verses that we are not to be afraid. Our God has already paid an exorbitant ransom price to set us free and He calls each of us by name! The Lord declares that because we belong to Him we have nothing to fear; He will not allow any difficulty, oppression or consuming circumstance to destroy us and that He is with us no matter what we have to face in the days ahead. What an awesome truth that He is not only The Lord and Holy God of Israel, but also chose to be our Savior through the blood of Jesus! Renew your trust in His loving care and protection to be your Savior today; rejoicing that you no longer walk alone.

Scripture for the week of October 29, 2023
By JoBeth Kested

Praise the Lord, all you nations. Praise him, all you people of the earth. For he loves us with unfailing love; the Lord’s faithfulness endures forever. Praise the Lord! Psalm 117:1-2 (NLT)

Everyone at one time or another suffers the wounds of failed relationships whether it is family, a spouse, best friend or a boss. The hurt, grief, betrayal, injustice and anger can be extremely difficult to deal with or overcome. We can spin our mental and emotional wheels endlessly asking the questions “Why me?”, “How did this happen?”, and “What if…?” yet never finding the answers to soothe our hurting souls. This scripture reminds us that God’s love for ALL nations and ALL people never ends and never fails. No matter our color or culture we will always find His arms open to receive and restore us in His love that will never end! No matter our faults or failures our circumstances or sorrows the promise and healing hope of the Lord’s steadfast unfailing love knows no barriers nor boundaries. Let us ALL lift our voice in gratitude for God’s endless unfailing love and Praise The Lord!

Choose Victory by Beth Auman

We have two choices in this life. We can choose to

5 Trust in Adonai with all your heart;
do not rely on your own understanding.
6 In all your ways acknowledge him;
then he will level your paths. Proverbs 3:5-6 CJB

Or

We choose to trust in and walk with the false, forever loser the devil, the thief.

10 The thief comes only in order to steal, kill and destroy; I have come so that they may have life, life in its fullest measure. John 10:10 CJB

Personally, I choose YHWH! Yeshua is Adonai (LORD).

I stand with and pray for the Shalom of Jerusalem and believe His Word!

Psalm 76 CJB

76 (0) For the leader. With string music. A psalm of Asaf. A song:

2 (1) In Y’hudah God is known; his name is great in Isra’el.
3 (2) His tent is in Shalem, his place is in Tziyon.
4 (3) There he broke the flashing arrows, the shield, the sword, and the weapons of war. (Selah)

5 (4) You are glorious, majestic, more so than mountains of prey.
6 (5) The bravest have been stripped of their spoil and now are sleeping their final sleep; not one of these courageous men finds strength to raise his hands.
7 (6) At your rebuke, God of Ya‘akov, riders and horses lie stunned.

8 (7) You are fearsome! When once you are angry, who can stand in your presence?
9 (8) You pronounce sentence from heaven; the earth grows silent with fear
10 (9) when God arises to judge, to save all the humble of the earth. (Selah)

11 (10) Human wrath serves only to praise you;
what remains of this wrath you wear as an ornament.
12 (11) Make vows to Adonai your God, and keep them; all who are around him must bring presents to the one who should be feared.
13 (12) He curbs the spirit of princes; he is fearsome to the kings of the earth.

Today settle this within your own self. Yeshua (Jesus) IS Adonai (Lord) of my life! I renounce satan! I ask forgiveness for my sins and repent for my wrong doing!

I enter into a right relationship with YHWH’s Word! Declaring Psalm 76 in Yeshua’s Name! 2 (1) In Y’hudah God is known; his name is great in Isra’el.
3 (2) His tent is in Shalem, his place is in Tziyon.
4 (3) There he broke the flashing arrows, the shield, the sword, and the weapons of war. (Selah)

Psalms 24 CJB

1 By David. A psalm: The earth is ADONAI’s, with all that is in it, the world and those who live there;

2 for he set its foundations on the seas and established it on the rivers.

3 Who may go up to the mountain of ADONAI? Who can stand in his holy place?

4 Those with clean hands and pure hearts, who don’t make vanities the purpose of their lives or swear oaths just to deceive.

5 They will receive a blessing from ADONAI and justice from God, who saves them.

6 Such is the character of those who seek him, of Ya’akov, who seeks your face. (Selah)

7 Lift up your heads, you gates! Lift them up, everlasting doors, so that the glorious king can enter!

8 Who is he, this glorious king? ADONAI, strong and mighty, ADONAI, mighty in battle.

9 Lift up your heads, you gates! Lift them up, everlasting doors, so that the glorious king can enter!

10 Who is he, this glorious king? ADONAI-Tzva’ot he is the glorious king. (Selah)

Amen!

Victory Is in Yeshua (Jesus)

A Time to Choose by Beth Auman

I hope that Adonai has found you on the wall interceding, declaring, decreeing over Israel. Remember His Word. Be found by Him in covenant with Him for Adonai relates intimately with those who fear Him. Those in whom His Ruach HaKodesh dwell in. His Holy Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and power,
the Spirit of knowledge and fearing Adonai.

Fearing Adonai is our boundary. If you have gone through the new door then you are within His boundary and must be on the wall praying for, interceding for, standing for and defending the apple of His eye! His chosen land and people. We are One (Echad) in Yeshua Messiah.

Isaiah 11:2 CJB

2 The Spirit of Adonai will rest on him,
the Spirit of wisdom and understanding,
the Spirit of counsel and power,
the Spirit of knowledge and fearing Adonai

Psalm 25 CJB

25 (0) By David:

Make me know your ways, Adonai,
teach me your paths.
Guide me in your truth, and teach me;
for you are the God who saves me,
my hope is in you all day long.
Remember your compassion and grace, Adonai;
for these are ages old.
Don’t remember my youthful sins or transgressions;
but remember me according to your grace
for the sake of your goodness, Adonai.

(1) I lift my inner being to you, Adonai;
I trust you, my God.
Don’t let me be disgraced,
don’t let my enemies gloat over me.
No one waiting for you will be disgraced;
disgrace awaits those who break faith for no reason.

Adonai is good, and he is fair;
this is why he teaches sinners the way [to live],
leads the humble to do what is right
and teaches the humble [to live] his way.
10 All Adonai’s paths are grace and truth
to those who keep his covenant and instructions.
11 For the sake of your name, Adonai,
forgive my wickedness, great though it is.

12 Who is the person who fears Adonai?
He will teach him the way to choose.
13 He will remain prosperous,
and his descendants will inherit the land.
14 Adonai relates intimately with those who fear him;
he makes them know his covenant.

15 My eyes are always directed toward Adonai,
for he will free my feet from the net.
16 Turn to me, and show me your favor;
for I am alone and oppressed.
17 The troubles of my heart are growing and growing;
bring me out of my distress.
18 See my affliction and suffering,
and take all my sins away.

19 Consider my enemies, how many there are
and how cruelly they hate me.
20 Protect me and rescue me;
don’t let me be disgraced,
for I take refuge in you.
21 Let integrity and uprightness preserve me,
because my hope is in you.

22 God! Redeem Isra’el
from all their troubles!

Ephesians 2:14-16 CJB

14 For he himself is our shalom — he has made us both one and has broken down the m’chitzah which divided us 15 by destroying in his own body the enmity occasioned by the Torah, with its commands set forth in the form of ordinances. He did this in order to create in union with himself from the two groups a single new humanity and thus make shalom, 16 and in order to reconcile to God both in a single body by being executed on a stake as a criminal and thus in himself killing that enmity.

Abba, we come before You today as One (echad), standing in faith for our brothers and sisters. There is no dividing wall of division. Only the wall of prayer snd intercession that we all stand on today. The chief cornerstone Yeshua, Jesus our Messiah. Open our eyes, show each of us how to align and what to declare, decree, intercede. We submit ourselves unto You Adonai in unity. We resist the devil and he must flee. We declare Davar Shalom! We bind chaos! We take authority over chaos and together read out loud Psalm 25 and in unity we apply Yeshua’s blood over every covenant family and seal our prayer in Yeshua’s Name. Amen

Adonai will level your path – Psalm 27

Psalm 27 is read daily during the Month of Elul. I give YHWH all praise, honor and glory in Yeshua’s Name because recently He spoke to me in a dream/vision.

Something was weighing me down. A conflict with people. (conflicts don’t sit well with me). My goal is to walk in Abba’s Shalom 24/7 365 days per year. I am not perfect but I do realize that conflict can prevent me from giving!

In my dream/vision Yeshua came into my room. I told him that I wanted to repent for anything in the situation that I had done wrong, but I could not see the thing that I needed to repent for. I apologized for struggling and asked Him what He wanted me to do. He said to me, “ you have nothing to repent for. Others have made you feel that you did wrong, but you stepped back and did exactly what I instructed you to do in each situation.”

I cried and said Blessings, honor and praise unto YHWH in your Name Yeshua. He said well done Beth and because you did this, I will now do this.

The room changed into a path with giant boulders. Boulders that I could not get around or over. I saw Him reach down from heaven, His hand looked so large and as if picking up a grain of sand, He moved the giant boulders from my path. Then He patted down every bit of dirt and said, I have leveled your path.”

I cried out Thank You Adonai so much. He said,”Now move forward.” Obediently, I stepped on the level path. I told Him thank You and I Love You. He smiled.


During the Month of Elul, Psalm 27 is read everyday. I know that the significance of Yeshua removing boulders from the path is time specific, my dream/vision is specific. Time specific. Believe me when I say that there is more to the Hebraic calendar and our path than we can comprehend yet. He is releasing this revelation and understanding to those who desire to dive deeper.

Psalm 27:11-12 11 Teach me your way, Adonai; lead me on a level path because of my enemies —
12 don’t give me up to the whims of my foes; for false witnesses have risen against me, also those who are  violence.

Adonai, teach us Your way. Lead us on Your level path because of our enemies. Don’t give us up to the whims if our foes! For false witness have risen against us, also those who are breathing violence.

We believe that we will see Your goodness in the land of the living … we declare and decree that we put our hope in you Adonai! We are strong and we take courage! Yes we put our hope in You Adonai! Amen

Psalm 27 CJB

27 (0) By David:

(1) Adonai is my light and salvation;
whom do I need to fear?
Adonai is the stronghold of my life;
of whom should I be afraid?
When evildoers assailed me
to devour my flesh,
my adversaries and foes,
they stumbled and fell.
If an army encamps against me,
my heart will not fear;
if war breaks out against me,
even then I will keep trusting.

Just one thing have I asked of Adonai;
only this will I seek:
to live in the house of Adonai
all the days of my life,
to see the beauty of Adonai
and visit in his temple.
For he will conceal me in his shelter
on the day of trouble,
he will hide me in the folds of his tent,
he will set me high on a rock.
Then my head will be lifted up
above my surrounding foes,
and I will offer in his tent
sacrifices with shouts of joy;
I will sing, sing praises to Adonai.

7 Listen, Adonai, to my voice when I cry;
show favor to me; and answer me.
8 “My heart said of you, ‘Seek my face.’”
Your face, Adonai, I will seek.
9 Do not hide your face from me,
don’t turn your servant away in anger.
You are my help; don’t abandon me;
don’t leave me, God my savior.
10 Even though my father and mother have left me,
Adonai will care for me.
11 Teach me your way, Adonai;
lead me on a level path
because of my enemies —
12 don’t give me up to the whims of my foes;
for false witnesses have risen against me,
also those who are breathing violence.

13 If I hadn’t believed that I would see
Adonai’s goodness in the land of the living, . . .
14 Put your hope in Adonai, be strong,
and let your heart take courage!
Yes, put your hope in Adonai!


Read Psalm 27 during the Month of Elul. The dream/vision that I had was such a prophetic picture of what He is doing at this moment in time. Remember that He didn’t just leave us out here to figure everything out by ourselves. He literally gave us everything that we need for the abundant life that He was born, lived a sinless life, died and rose again for us to have. He gives us our daily bread as we ask for it. He is leveling my path and He is leveling your path. Step on His level path. Take a step as a prophetic act and have faith for the next step. Have Faith!


Blessings and Shalom – Love Beyond Measure, Beth Auman

I speak the Name of Yeshua over you! I speak Life – His Abundant Life over you!

Scripture of the Week by JoBeth Kested

Scripture for the week of July 23, 2023

A man’s steps are established by the Lord, and He takes pleasure in his way. Though he falls, he will not be overwhelmed, because the Lord holds his hand. Psalm 37:23-24 (HCSB)

Have you ever enjoyed the craziness of a scavenger hunt where you are dependent upon finding the clues to guide where you need to go next? Sometimes, we can feel stuck in our life without a map or plan to follow and no clue of how to proceed. Due to circumstances beyond our control, we can find ourselves feeling helpless, like stumbling along in the dark with a fear of failing and falling. How encouraging it is to learn in these scriptures that we can trust that the Lord takes pleasure in establishing our steps and showing us the way we need to go. He promises that even if we stumble along the way, He is holding our hand to strengthen and protect us from the overwhelming fear of falling. Lord, establish our steps, please hold our hand and protect us as we follow you out of the dark and confusing times of our lives. Amen.

Choose to Walk in the LIGHT by Beth Auman

The words “But if” implies a choice that is being presented to us. . 7 But if we are walking in the light, as he is in the light, then we have fellowship with each other, and the blood of his Son Yeshua purifies us from all sin. 1 John 1:7

We must choose to walk in the light as He Yeshua (Jesus) is in the light… then once the choice has been made, we have fellowship with each other, and the blood of His Son Yeshua (Jesus) purifies us from all sin.

Dear one, this choice must be made in every circumstance that we face. If we slander, speak or seek unholy angry, selfish, disrespectful, disparaging words against our brothers and sisters, we are not walking in His Light. We are in fact walking in sin and darkness.

Abba, forgive us for our refusal to walk in the Light Yeshua (Jesus) as He is in the Light. He IS the Light!

We choose You Yeshua (Jesus). We ask for and offer forgiveness to anyone who has spoken wickedly against us and anyone that we have spoken wickedly against. We apply Yeshua (Jesus) blood over our brothers and sisters as well as ourselves.

We set our will to walk in The Light Yeshua

(Jesus). We choose Your will and Your eat, today and everyday and circumstances that we find ourselves in.

John 8:12 CJB 12 Yeshua spoke to them again: “I am the light of the world; whoever follows me will never walk in darkness but will have the light which gives life.”
John 14:6 CJB 6 Yeshua said, “I AM the Way — and the Truth and the Life; no one comes to the Father except through me.

We choose Yeshua (Jesus), today and every day. Thank You Abba for Your Son! Your Plan for our lives. In Yeshua (Jesus) Name Amen


Please read all of 1John 1. Ask Abba to reveal His Light Yeshua (Jesus).

1 John 1 CJB

1 The Word, which gives life!
He existed from the beginning.
We have heard him,
we have seen him with our eyes,
we have contemplated him,
we have touched him with our hands!

The life appeared,
    and we have seen it.
We are testifying to it
    and announcing it to you —
eternal life!

He was with the Father,
    and he appeared to us.
What we have seen and heard,
    we are proclaiming to you;
so that you too
    may have fellowship with us.
Our fellowship is with the Father
    and with his Son, Yeshua the Messiah.
We are writing these things
        so that our joy may be complete.

And this is the message which we have heard from him and proclaim to you: God is light, and there is no darkness in him — none!

If we claim to have fellowship with him while we are walking in the darkness, we are lying and not living out the truth. But if we are walking in the light, as he is in the light, then we have fellowship with each other, and the blood of his Son Yeshua purifies us from all sin.

If we claim not to have sin, we are deceiving ourselves, and the truth is not in us. If we acknowledge our sins, then, since he is trustworthy and just, he will forgive them and purify us from all wrongdoing.

10 If we claim we have not been sinning, we are making him out to be a liar, and his Word is not in us.


Blessings and Shalom- Love Beyond Measure, Beth Auman

Walk in The Light.
