Scripture for the week of July 21, 2024
By JoBeth Kested

Ah, Lord God! Behold, You have made the heavens and the earth by Your great power and outstretched arm. There is nothing too hard for You. —the Great, the Mighty God, whose name is the Lord of hosts. Jeremiah 31:17,18b (NKJV)

Have you ever gazed upon the innumerable stars in the night sky, admired the beauty of a sunset or captivated by the ocean depths and wondered in awe of the power and majesty of God? It is really easy to then feel so small and insignificant with doubts that God would care about us and our circumstances. Mighty God in this verse means Warrior, a Champion and Hero. The God who made all of creation, Warrior Lord of all the Angel Armies of Heaven, is also our Champion and Hero! Are you battle weary of circumstances beyond your control or blind sighted by troubles you least expected? No matter what you are facing, be encouraged and trust that the great and powerful arm of Mighty God (El-Gibbor), your Champion, your Hero, is outstretched to you! There is nothing too hard for our God to protect and provide, to lead and guide us in all our circumstances. Yes, Amen!

Scripture for the week of June 30, 2024
By JoBeth Kested

God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. Revelation 21:4 (NKJV)

Have you ever cried heartbreaking tears and there was no one there to wipe them away or to wrap you in a loving embrace? We all long for a world without the grief of injustice, suffering, broken hearts and tears. This scripture in Revelation is God’s promise that the dream in every heart to see the end of all death, sorrow, crying and pain will surely come. Until that day we find this comfort that our loving Heavenly Father is our safe refuge; He is always there to hold us in His everlasting arms, He holds all our tears in a bottle and writes all our sorrows in His book. (Deuteronomy 33:22, Psalm 56:8) We can now hold this hope that as we face all the trials and tribulations of this world we have peace, comfort and joy because of the resurrection life that is ours in Jesus. (John 16:33) Yes, AMEN!

The Faithful of the Land

Psalm 101 CJB

101 (0) A psalm of David:

(1) I am singing of grace and justice;
I am singing to you, Adonai.
I will follow the path of integrity;
when will you come to me?
I will run my life with a sincere heart
inside my own house.
I will not allow before my eyes
any shameful thing.
I hate those who act crookedly;
what they do does not attract me.
Deviousness will depart from me;
I will not tolerate evil.
If someone slanders another in secret,
I will cut him off.
Haughty eyes and proud hearts
I cannot abide.

I look to the faithful of the land,
so that they can be my companions;
those who live lives of integrity
can be servants of mine.
No deceitful person can live in my house;
no liar can be my advisor.
Every morning I will destroy
all the wicked of the land,
cutting off all evildoers
from the city of Adonai.

Adonai, we stand today declaring and decreeing Psalm 101 over our lives, our Nation, our families, ministries, ministry covenant partners, friends and neighbors in Yeshua’s Name Amen

Rise up, take your seat in heavenly places in Yeshua Hamashiach declare and decree Adonai’s Word.

Scripture for the week of June 23, 2024
By JoBeth Kested

He rescued me from my powerful enemy, from my foes, who were too strong for me. They confronted me in the day of my disaster, but the Lord was my support. He brought me out into a spacious place; He rescued me because he delighted in me. Psalm 18:17-19 (NIV)

Have you ever felt like you are faced with enemies too powerful to overcome? Sometimes we find ourselves in the midst of overpowering circumstances and feel like there is nowhere to turn with no one to help. These scriptures remind us that even when we are confronted with disasters and powerful foes, beneath our shaking knees and unsteady feet we have the unshakable strength and support of the all powerful Almighty God, King of kings and Lord of lords. Oh, how wonderful to know that our Heavenly Father delights in you and me! He rescues us from captivity and bring us out into the freedom of open spaces with new opportunities. Whatever we face today or tomorrow we must not forget to rejoice in the truth that the Lord delights in us and will always be our strength, our deliverer, and Savior. All glory, honor and praise to our God!

Counting The Omer From Passover To Shevuot-Pentecost

Psalm 82 CJB A psalm of Asaf: Elohim [God] stands in the divine assembly; there with the elohim [judges], he judges: “How long will you go on judging unfairly, favoring the wicked? (Selah) Give justice to the weak and fatherless! Uphold the rights of the wretched and poor! Rescue the destitute and needy; deliver them from the power of the wicked!” They don’t know, they don’t understand, they wander about in darkness; meanwhile, all the foundations of the earth are being undermined. “My decree is: ‘You are elohim [gods, judges], sons of the Most High all of you. Nevertheless, you will die like mortals; like any prince, you will fall.’” Rise up, Elohim, and judge the earth; for all the nations are yours.


We stand still to hear and see and know that You alone are ADONAI our Elohim. Just as Moses, we fear You, yet we will come to You in the fire to hear Your voice. We choose You!

Deuteronomy 5:4-6 CJB Adonai spoke with you face to face from the fire on the mountain. At that time I stood between Adonai and you in order to tell you what Adonai was saying; because, on account of the fire, you were afraid and wouldn’t go up onto the mountain. He said, ? “‘I am Adonai your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, where you lived as slaves.

We stand ready for Shavuot-Pentecost. We await Your fresh FIRE. We want to burn for You. So come Ruach HaKodesh (Holy Spirit). Pour out as cloven tongues of fire over, in and through us. We receive all that You have and stand as Your Apostles did, ready, willing and submitted unto You in Yeshua’s (Jesus) Name. Amen

Acts 2:1-4 CJB The festival of Shavu‘ot arrived, and the believers all gathered together in one place. Suddenly there came a sound from the sky like the roar of a violent wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. Then they saw what looked like tongues of fire, which separated and came to rest on each one of them. They were all filled with the Ruach HaKodesh and began to talk in different languages, as the Spirit enabled them to speak.

These two events are Shevuot-Pentecost. The giving of Torah and The out pouring of Ruach Ha Kodesh (Holy Spirit). same Days.. ADONAI is speaking One New Man…are you listening? Or do you want someone like Moses to stand in your place and pass in the information? The choice to Hear His voice yours is yours. Be filled to overflowing by Ruach Ha Kodesh.

Be ready to receive all that He has for you on this day. Tuesday, June 11th thru Thursday June 13th 2024.

We have Passed Over by the Blood of the LAMB Yeshua (Jesus) out of the hand of the enemy. Counted the 49 Days of the Omer and have arrived. It’s time to Celebrate! It’s time to be filled to overflowing by Ruach Ha Kodesh (Holy Spirit). Yeshua (Jesus) has already paid the price for you in full.

Are you Ready? I am Ready! come Ruach Ha Kodesh (Holy Spirit), we welcome You!

Remember that Abba created the Sun, Moon and Stars to govern His Moed Times. His appointed feast days to meet with us. He never changed His calendar.

We are in covenant with YHWH our Elohim, filled to overflow with Ruach HaKodesh in Yeshua’s Name Amen.

Welcome Shevuot-Pentecost 5784.

Blessings and Shalom in Yeshua our Messiah

Scripture for the week of June 9, 2024
By JoBeth Kested

Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth! The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge. Selah. Psalm 46:10-11 (NKJV)

Have you ever enjoyed a summer night of frogs croaking, crickets creaking and fireflies flitting? Or have you ever taken the time to look for pictures in the clouds or watched for falling stars in a dark night sky? Isn’t it interesting how much we can see and hear if we will take the time to be still. In stillness we may also have to face our encroaching fears, our emptiness or our feelings of being all alone. But, in this scripture God instructs us that we will find Him in the still and quiet place. Our Heavenly Father desires for us to cease from our struggles and striving to find the comfort, peace and rest we so long for in the stillness of His presence. Whatever we may be facing in the uncertainties and upheavals of this world our God declares in this scripture that He will be exalted above all else in the earth. The Lord of Hosts is with us and is our refuge. Selah means ponder and think of that! Amen.

Grace Beyond Measure

May grace and shalom be yours in full measure, as you come to a full knowledge of God and Yeshua our Lord. God’s power has given us everything we need for life and godliness, through our knowing the One who called us to his own glory and goodness. By these he has given us valuable and superlatively great promises, so that through them you might come to share in God’s nature and escape the corruption which evil desires have brought into the world. 

For this very reason, try your hardest to furnish your faith with goodness, goodness with knowledge, knowledge with self-control, self-control with perseverance, perseverance with godliness, godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love. For if you have these qualities in abundance, they keep you from being barren and unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah. Indeed, whoever lacks them is blind, so shortsighted that he forgets that his past sins have been washed away. 

Therefore, brothers, try even harder to make your being called and chosen a certainty. For if you keep doing this, you will never stumble. Thus you will be generously supplied with everything you need to enter the eternal Kingdom of our Lord and Deliverer, Yeshua the Messiah.
2Peter 2-11 CJB


We are to try even harder to make your being called and chosen a certainty. We do this not by faking it until we make it. We do this by furnishing our faith … with goodness, goodness with knowledge, knowledge with self-control, self-control with perseverance, perseverance with godliness, godliness with brotherly affection, and brotherly affection with love. For if you have these qualities in abundance, they keep you from being barren and unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah.

What is furnishing our faith, you may be asking. Peter makes it very understandable. Move in like weighty furniture: goodness with knowledge; knowledge with self control; self control with perseverance; perseverance with godliness; godliness with brotherly affection and brotherly affection with love. 

He further tells us that if we place weight on these things with every thought, deed and action in abundance, they will keep us from being barren and unfruitful in the knowledge of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah.

Wow! Abba, we come before You today and repent for our missing the mark. For not lining up with what You place weight on. Our desire is for Your authentic outpouring of Your Holy Spirit. Have it all, Abba. We lay down our agenda, our worship, our plans. We lay it all down before You and receive Your authentic Ruach HaKodesh in Yeshua’s Name.

We declare that we will try even harder to make being called and chosen a certainty. We will furnish our faith from this point forward as You have instructed. We command barrenness to leave!, blindness to leave, eyes and ears to be opened! That we may receive the full knowledge of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah!

We commit to keep doing this. We receive Your Word through Peter that by doing as You have instructed, we will not stumble. That we will be generously supplied with everything that we need to enter the eternal Kingdom of our Lord and Deliverer, Yeshua the Messiah. Amen!

Scripture Of The Week By JoBeth Kested

Scripture for the week of June 2, 2024
By JoBeth Kested

Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord, 2 Peter 1:2 (NKJV)

Are you in need of abundant grace and peace? Grace is undeserved favor and divine assistance. Peace is tranquility, harmony and freedom from disturbance or affliction. The Biblical definition of knowledge is based on understanding from experience. This verse exhorts us that the more we increase in knowing our Father God, and our Savior Jesus, the more His grace and peace will increase in our lives. Like the Hebrews in the wilderness that had to gather fresh manna each day, Jesus is the Bread of Life that God has provided for us to that we need to seek new each day. Whatever we may have experienced of God’s love, mercy, forgiveness and provision in the past, be encouraged to KNOW that as we seek to know Him more each day we’ll never exhaust the supply His sufficient favor, divine assistance, and peace that passes understanding. May His grace and peace be multiplied to you today.

Scripture for the week of May 26, 2024
By JoBeth Kested

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, 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! 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!
