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!

Blessed or Cursed

YHWH’s Word is Truth. The choice is of course yours. Many seem to be running after the curse.

We must rise up and pray that they see past their intellectualism. They obviously have never actually heard the Truth.

Abba, Today we align ourselves with Your Word Yeshua and in His Name for all who are deceived. For every evil institution that would propagate hatred against Your people and land Israel.

For this reason, ever since I heard about your trust in the Lord Yeshua and your love for all God’s people, I have not stopped giving thanks for you. In my prayers I keep asking the God of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah, the glorious Father, to give you a spirit of wisdom and revelation, so that you will have full knowledge of him. I pray that he will give light to the eyes of your hearts, so that you will understand the hope to which he has called you, what rich glories there are in the inheritance he has promised his people, and how surpassingly great is his power working in us who trust him. It works with the same mighty strength he used when he worked in the Messiah to raise him from the dead and seat him at his right hand in heaven, far above every ruler, authority, power, dominion or any other name that can be named either in the ‘olam hazeh or in the ‘olam haba. Also, he has put all things under his feet and made him head over everything for the Messianic Community, which is his body, the full expression of him who fills all creation. Ephesians 1:15-23 CJB

Abraham’s Covenant Stands and we are those who declare it today.

Parashah 3: Lekh L’kha (Get yourself out) 12:1–17:27Now said to Avram, “Get yourself out of your country, away from your kinsmen and away from your father’s house, and go to the land that I will show you. I will make of you a great nation, I will bless you, and I will make your name great; and you are to be a blessing. I will bless those who bless you, but I will curse anyone who curses you; and by you all the families of the earth will be blessed.”
Genesis 12:1-3 CJB


YHWH’s Word IS True! You choose today.. Blessing or Curse and remember that His Son Yeshua shed His blood so that you could have a choice!

Please ask Yeshua-Jesus to be your Lord and Savior today. Lay the devil, demonic hate down and step into The Truth! Repent for your hatred, for believing this lie and ask YHWH to forgive you in Yeshua’s Name.

Welcome to the Kingdom..welcome to the Blessings

Scripture of the Week by JoBeth Kested

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!

Scripture of the Week by JoBeth Kested

Scripture for the week of October 22, 2023
By JoBeth Kested

“You are My witnesses,” says the Lord, “and My servant whom I have chosen, that you may know and believe Me, and understand that I am He. Before Me there was no God formed, nor shall there be after Me. Isaiah 43:10 NKJV

Have you ever considered that there is a big difference between “believing in God” verses “believing God?” Believing in God allows us to believe what we want to believe about God as we attempt to fit Him into the box of our own preferences and understanding. Believing God means we have chosen to acknowledge the absolute sovereignty of the Bible, believing God is Who He says He is and also believing that He will do what He says He will do. God declares in this verse that He has chosen us even before we choose Him! He invites us to “know” Him in an intimate personal relationship that opens the eyes of our understanding with the ability to BELIEVE that He is the one and only true GOD that always was, always is and always will be! Lord, I believe, help me where I still have unbelief. Let your light so shine through me that others also see and believe. 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)

Scripture of the Week by JoBeth Kested

Scripture for the week of September 10, 2023
By JoBeth Kested

Arise, shine; For your light has come! And the glory of the LORD is risen upon you. For behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, And deep darkness the people; But the LORD will arise over you, And His glory will be seen upon you. Isaiah 60:1-2 NKJV

Is there anything more beautiful than the dawning rays of sunlight breaking into a new day over majestic mountains, upon rolling ocean waves or watching from the serenity of your own back porch? But, what does the glory of the Lord rising upon us mean? The glory of the Lord in this scripture seems to mean the promise of His loving presence that drives away loneliness, the comfort of His peace that passes understanding, blessings of mercy that triumph over judgement, and the goodness of His enabling grace bestowed upon us. There are times we all need the restoring hope of light to drive out the darkness of fearful times and the unexpected circumstances afflicting our souls. What an encouraging gift we have in the promise of these scriptures that even in the darkest times our loving God promises the arising light upon us with His glorious presence, comfort and sufficient grace for each day. Thank You, Lord!

Scripture for the week of August 6, 2023
By JoBeth Kested

“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. He’s the Lord of the Hosts of Heavenly Angel 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!

Hear The Word of Adonai

Do not be afraid dear one. Hear Adonai’s Word today and gain His understanding.

In Proverbs 3 Abba lays out Wisdom and Understanding for us. Wisdom and Understanding are vital for us. We must not fear. We must trust.

Read this as many times as it takes to get inside you today. Read it out loud. Remember that: So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God. Romans 10:17 17

Proverbs 3 CJB

3 My son, don’t forget my teaching, keep my commands in your heart;
2 for they will add to you many days, years of life and peace.

3 Do not let grace and truth leave you — bind them around your neck; write them on the tablet of your heart.
4 Then you will win favor and esteem in the sight of God and of people.

5 Trust in Adonaiwith all your heart; do not rely on your own understanding.
6 In all your ways acknowledge him; then he will level your paths.

7 Don’t be conceited about your own wisdom; but fear Adonai, and turn from evil.
8 This will bring health to your body and give strength to your bones.

9 Honor Adonaiwith your wealth and with the firstfruits of all your income.
10 Then your granaries will be filled and your vats overflow with new wine.

11 My son, don’t despise Adonai’s discipline or resent his reproof;
12 for Adonaicorrects those he loves like a father who delights in his son.

13 Happy the person who finds wisdom, the person who acquires understanding;
14 for her profit exceeds that of silver, gaining her is better than gold,
15 she is more precious than pearls nothing you want can compare with her.
16 Long life is in her right hand, riches and honor in her left.
17 Her ways are pleasant ways, and all her paths are peace.
18 She is a tree of life to those who grasp her; whoever holds fast to her will be made happy.

19 Adonai by wisdom founded the earth, by understanding he established the heavens,
20 by his knowledge the deep [springs] burst open and the dew condenses from the sky.
21 My son, don’t let these slip from your sight; preserve common sense and discretion;
22 they will be life for your being and grace for your neck.
23 Then you will walk your way securely, without hurting your foot.
24 When you lie down, you will not be afraid; when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet.

25 Don’t be afraid of sudden terror or destruction caused by the wicked, when it comes;
26 for you can rely on Adonai; he will keep your foot from being caught in a trap.

27 Don’t withhold good from someone entitled to it when you have in hand the power to do it.
28 Don’t tell your neighbor, “Go away! Come another time; I’ll give it to you tomorrow,” when you have it now.
29 Don’t plan harm against your neighbor who lives beside you trustingly.
30 Don’t quarrel with someone for no reason, if he has done you no harm.
31 Don’t envy a man of violence, don’t choose any of his ways;
32 for the perverse is an abomination to Adonai, but he shares his secret counsel with the upright.
33 Adonai’s curse is in the house of the wicked, but he blesses the home of the righteous.
34 The scornful he scorns, but gives grace to the humble.
35 The wise win honor, but fools win shame.


Hebrews 4:12 CJB 12 See, the Word of God is alive! It is at work and is sharper than any double-edged sword – it cuts right through to where soul meets spirit and joints meet marrow, and it is quick to judge the inner reflections and attitudes of the heart.

Speaking Abba’s greatest Blessings and Shalom over each of you in Yeshua (Jesus) Name

Love you all beyond measure – Beth Auman

Declaration For Today In Yeshua’s Name

Psalm 46 CJB

46 (0) For the leader. By the descendants of Korach. On ‘alamot [high-pitched musical instruments?]. A song:

(1) God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble.
(2) Therefore we are unafraid,
even if the earth gives way,
even if the mountains tumble
into the depths of the sea,
(3) even if its waters rage and foam,
and mountains shake at its turbulence. (Selah)

(4) There is a river whose streams
gladden the city of God,
the holy habitation of ‘Elyon —
(5) God is in the city.
It will not be moved —
when daybreak comes, God will help it.
(6) Nations were in turmoil,
kingdoms were moved;
his voice thundered forth,
and the earth melted away.

(7) Adonai-Tzva’ot is with us,
our fortress, the God of Ya‘akov. (Selah)
(8) Come and see the works of Adonai,
the astounding deeds he has done on the earth.
10 (9) To the ends of the earth he makes wars cease —
he breaks the bow, snaps the spear,
burns the shields in the fire.
11 (10) “Desist, and learn that I am God,
supreme over the nations,
supreme over the earth.”

12 (11) Adonai-Tzva’ot is with us,
our fortress, the God of Ya‘akov. (Selah)


Abba, we come before Your throne today in Yeshua’s Name and declare and decree Psalm 46. You are with us, You are our fortress!! Be who You are! We will not limit You by our human thinking! We need you to be who You are in Your fullness!!Amen


Blessings and Shalom – Love Beyond Measure, Beth Auman
