April 21

Awesome movie last night!  Plenty of action, history, love, drama, forgiveness, redemption and just plain fun!  I encourage you to come out next month as not only are we seeing great movies that always represent the Lord but the fellowship is wonderful and it is such a great opportunity to invite people to Kona Faith Center in a relaxed atmosphere!

…and I give them eternal life. They will absolutely never be destroyed, and no one will snatch them from my hands. My Father, who gave them to me, is greater than all; and no one can snatch them from the Father’s hands. I and the Father are one.”  John 10:28-30 CJB

Father God, in the Name of Yeshua Messiah, I declare and decree the above daily verse over those who have said yes to You and those who need to return home to the sheep-fold! 

This is a long blog as these are three of the great chapters to me...

Deuteronomy 4

This morning’s heading over this chapter is, “Call to Obedience”.  Yes, Kona Faith Center – let us become so determined to see the glory of our God every time we gather in His house that we daily respond to His call of obedience and stay clear from sin!  He has given us the best of the best promises.  Pray, obey and walk in the reality of faith!

You must not add anything to what I command you or take anything away from it, so that you may keep the commands of the Lord your God I am giving you.

Carefully follow them, for this will show your wisdom and understanding in the eyes of the peoples. When they hear about all these statutes, they will say, ‘This great nation is indeed a wise and understanding people.’ For what great nation is there that has a god near to it as the Lord our God is to us whenever we call to him?

“Only be on your guard and diligently watch yourselves, so that you don’t forget the things your eyes have seen and so that they don’t slip from your mind as long as you live. Teach them to your children and your grandchildren.

23 Be careful not to forget the covenant of the Lord your God that he made with you, and make an idol for yourselves in the shape of anything he has forbidden you. 24 For the Lord your God is a consuming fire, a jealous God.

Lord, I choose to seek You with all of my heart so that You are found in my life!  Thank You that You will not leave me, destroy me or forget the covenant you swore to my fore-fathers with Your oath that can never be broken, because You Lord, are a compassionate God!  Oh Hallelujah!  You have promised me and shown me such wonders!  You have delivered me with Your strong hand and an outstretched arm!

Where, death, is your victory? Where, death, is your sting? The sting of death is sin, and the power of sin is the law. But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ! 1 Corinthians 15:55-57 CSB

Deuteronomy 3

My God fights for His people and always wins!  Thank You Lord that You send us leaders to continue the work at Kona Faith Center to encourage and strengthen, to inherit the property You have blessed us with!  Though the giants of our day not be flesh and blood, You have enabled the victory with the authority of Messiah Yeshua over all spirits of darkness!  Thank You for the built church, first and foremost, with hungry people after Your own heart and then the building to hold the multitude!

Proverbs 30

There is never a need to add to any of God’s Word for what He says is perfect and complete.

But as it is, Christ has been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. For since death came through a man, the resurrection of the dead also comes through a man. For just as in Adam all die, so also in Christ all will be made alive. 1 Corinthians 15:20-22 CSB

Deuteronomy 2

The Lord God is with me and I lack nothing!  The Lord gave the descendants of Esau and Lot their possession of land also, yet they want to take what God gave to Israel.  The Lord God is a Just God and if people just did what He said, there would be no problem.

Proverbs 29

Yes, righteous rulers cause rejoicing to the people.  Buy wisdom and never sell it!  Caring for the poor is not an option.  Proverbs 11 says it is the fool who vents their anger but a wise person keeps their mouth closed.  Great advice!  Discipline doesn’t stop based on age and without it disaster happens.  Loving and living the revelation from the Lord gives me wisdom and joy.  Fearing man brings a snare whereas trusting God brings protection.  My God is the One who truly gives justice.

If you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. One believes with the heart, resulting in righteousness, and one confesses with the mouth, resulting in salvation.  Romans 10:9-10 CSB

Deuteronomy 1

It is an eleven-day journey from Horeb to Kadesh-barnea by way of Mount Seir.

Don’t take 40 years of what should only take 11 days!  Man o man!  I must love the Lord my God with all my being, placing Him first, responding to His commands which are never burdensome, with immediate obedience!  I would much rather spend 11 days in the wilderness and then immediately obtain the Promise than spending 40 years and not even getting to the place of receiving!  Judgment belongs to God!  Rebellion and grumbling against the Lord brings absolutely nothing good – in fact, just the opposite!  God with me means every battle is won giving me victory by His hand.  There really is a point in rebellion against the Lord, even with all of His love and mercy towards humankind, that He will not allow His promises fulfilled because of never truly trusting Him.  I do not want to ever go there!  Lord, I must have the appropriate fear of You and trust You completely without grumble or complaint!  You are so good always wanting to bless Your people!  I want to receive all of the good You have for me, my Abba!

Proverbs 28

The wicked flee even when no one is pursuing them because they know they are living wrongly and become paranoid.  God’s righteous people need not fear anything but the Lord God Almighty, knowing He completely cares for us!  Seeking You Lord, gives great wisdom!  Integrity is important to You my Father, so Holy Spirit, deal with me if I live without it.  Discernment is a gift given to those who trust the Lord and walk with Him.  Mercy comes to those who repent from sin and choose to live righteously.  Chasing wealth over chasing God brings a person to ruin (just look at Hollywood).  Without God a person is never satisfied.  It is trust in the Lord that brings prosperity. 

27 The one who gives to the poor will not be in need, but one who turns his eyes away will receive many curses.

I was amused to read that today is the last day to get your taxes in and the IRS site crashed, but they said you have to do it today anyway.  I’m sure the post office lines will be long…

For the word of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but it is the power of God to us who are being saved.  1 Corinthians 1:18 CSB

Numbers 36

Once again the Lord proves how Just He is with the ruling on behalf of the daughters of Zelophehad and the individual tribes.  Our inheritance remains and no one can take it away from us.  Thank You Lord and I thank You also that one day I will know which tribe I am from.

Proverbs 27

I don’t know what will happen one millimeter of a second from now so how can I boast about anything to come.  It is only God who knows the end from the beginning of all things (Isaiah 46:10). 

One of the absolute worst spirits to deal with is a jealous spirit. 

Get out of the way of danger!  My God always gives me a way out! 

23 Know well the condition of your flock, and pay attention to your herds, 24 for wealth is not forever; not even a crown lasts for all time. 25 When hay is removed and new growth appears and the grain from the hills is gathered in, 26 lambs will provide your clothing, and goats, the price of a field; 27 there will be enough goat’s milk for your food—food for your household and nourishment for your female servants.

Thank You Lord!
