Scripture of the Week by JoBeth Kested

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.

Blessings and Shalom-Love Beyond Measure, Beth Auman

Walk Worthy Of Your Calling

We are all to be living epistles before men. What do others read from your page today? Humility, gentleness with patience? putting up with one another in love? Making every effort to keep the unity of the Ruach HaKodesh in the bind of shalom?

when people meet us they are partaking of the One to whom we proclaim, Yeshua.

is your fruit good to taste or is it bitter, angry, rotten and spoiled? Examine yourself today and ask for forgiveness. Repent and take a giant step forward.

Keep this Scripture close, memorize it. Walk it out in your own life and treat others with respect. Saved yet or not, they were formed and fashioned in their mother’s womb too. They were created in His image too. They will never see Yeshua if we continue acting like the one they serve.

This is the Truth.

We can stand on Adonai’s Word not bending to the sinful nature of others and still walk in love.


Abba, forgive each of us who ask today for our rotten behavior. We submit ourselves and our attitudes unto You. We resist the devil and he must flee from us.

We take a step forward into Ephesins 4:1-3:

I urge you to walk in a manner worthy of the calling to which you were called— with complete humility and gentleness, with patience, putting up with one another in love, making every effort to keep the unity of the Ruach in the bond of shalom.

In Yeshua’s Name. Amen


Blessings and Shalom – Love Beyond Measure in Yeshua, Beth Auman

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.

Scripture Of The Week By JoBeth Kested

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!

Scripture Of The Week by JoBeth Kested

Scripture of the week for May 12, 2024

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” in effort to express the greatness of their love? God declares the magnitude of His love for as there is no end to the height of the heavens above the earth. You may need to ask, “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 the Lord over us individually, as well. When we choose to fear the Lord and receive His gift of salvation, His lovingkindness 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 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!

Wholeheartedly Give Thanks To Adonai

Psalm 111 CJB

111 Halleluyah!

I will wholeheartedly give thanks to Adonai
in the council of the upright and in the assembly.
The deeds of Adonai are great,
greatly desired by all who enjoy them.
His work is full of majesty and splendor,
and his righteousness continues forever.
He has gained renown for his wonders.
Adonai is merciful and compassionate.
He gives food to those who fear him.
He remembers his covenant forever.
He shows his people how powerfully he works
by giving them the nations as their heritage.
The works of his hands are truth and justice;
all his precepts can be trusted.
They have been established forever and ever,
to be carried out truly and honestly.
He sent redemption to his people
and decreed that his covenant should last forever.
His name is holy and fearsome —
10 the first and foremost point of wisdom is the fear of Adonai;
all those living by it gain good common sense.
His praise stands forever.


Amen! Give thanks wholeheartedly because Adonai’s deeds are great and Greatly to be praised! His name is fearsome. We must remember always that the first and foremost point of wisdom is the fear of Adonai. That is where common sense comes from and wow do we all need common sense.

If you see someone with no common sense, they obviously the fear of Adonai isn’t operating within them. Pray for them, but do not connect yourself to them. Remember this.


The works of his hands are truth and justice; all his precepts can be trusted.
8 They have been established forever and ever, to be carried out truly and honestly.


We need His Truth and Justice right now in this world. Cry out with me today!

Adonai, I Trust You and I fear You. I give You all praise, honor and glory in Yeshua’s Name. May Psalm 111 be made manifest in our lives today. Amen

Blessings and Shalom in Yeshua – Love Beyond Measure, Beth Auman

Scripture Of The Week By JoBeth Kested

Scripture for the week of May 5, 2024
By JoBeth Kested

Fear not, for I am with you; be not dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand. Isaiah 41:10

Do have difficulty dealing with fear of failure, fear of rejection, or fear of the unknown? Fear is the friend of doubt and unbelief and the robber of our faith. The King James Bible mentions “fear not”, “do not fear” and “do not be afraid” 110 times and it is usually followed by exhortations that the Lord is with you. God makes five promises in this scripture. 1) He is with you. 2) He is your God. 3) He gives strength to replace your weariness. 4) He will help you. 5) And, He holds you up in the power of His righteousness. So, let the power of His presence, strength and righteousness overcome your fears of failure, inadequacy, or insufficiency. Let your faith be renewed in God’s empowering love, provision, and protection for you today.
