BEAUTY OF CREATION

GOOD MORNING

WITH ONLY HIS WORD creation fell into line and obeyed HIS DECREES!
The beauty of His creation stands as a reminder that HIS LOVE IS ETERNAL.

Just a thought for you to ponder today.
If He made all of creation and tells us it’s beautiful WHY CAN’T YOU & I ACCEPT THAT’S WHAT WE ARE????

He sees us and beautiful – “Fearfully and wonderfully made!”
With His track record of honesty to all of mankind, I WOULD START TRUSTING WHAT HE SAYS YOU ARE!!

CHRISTIAN WITHOUT BEING CHRISTLIKE

“Real talk with PK!” BEWARE AND BE-AWARE!!

To be a “CHRISTIAN” without being “Christlike” literally reveals you are not a “CHRISTIAN” at all!

People are no longer satisfied with “Christians” who can quote Scripture because they know the Bible but refuse to live by it’s decrees! Satan quoted Scripture!

“Everything is pure to those whose hearts are pure. But nothing is pure to those who are corrupt and unbelieving, because their minds and consciences are corrupted. Such people CLAIM THEY KNOW GOD, but they DENY HIM by:

THE WAY THEY LIVE – THE WAY THEY LIVE – THE WAY THEY LIVE- THE WAY THEY LIVE!!
They are detestable and disobedient, worthless for doing anything good.”
Titus 1:15‭-‬16 NLT
 

“As for you, Titus, promote the kind of
LIVING – LIVING – LIVING – LIVING
that reflects wholesome teaching.”
Titus 2:1 NLT

OUR WORDS SPEAK LOUDER WHEN OUR LIFE REFLECTS WHAT IS SAID!!

“Beware of false prophets who come disguised as harmless sheep but are really vicious wolves. You can identify them by their fruit, that is, BY THE WAY THEY ACT. Can you pick grapes from thorn bushes, or figs from thistles? A good tree produces good fruit, and a bad tree produces bad fruit. A good tree can’t produce bad fruit, and a bad tree can’t produce good fruit. So every tree that does not produce good fruit is chopped down and thrown into the fire. YES, JUST AS you can identify a tree by its fruit, SO YOU CAN IDENTITY PEOPLE by their ACTIONS.
Matthew 7:15‭-‬20 NLT
 

I will FOREVERMORE PREACH with my LIFE! And when needed I WILL use words!!!!
WILL YOU WHOM CLAIM TO BELIEVE IN JESUS CHRIST & GOD’S WORD JOIN ME???

I assure you THIS IS A LIFE AND DEATH QUESTION IN WHICH many will not preach because we’ve tried to soften the Word that warns us of AN ETERNAL CONSEQUENCE!
HEAVEN IS REAL AND HELL IS STILL HOT. SO WE HAVE A CHOICE TO MAKE NOW!!

“Not everyone who calls out to me, ‘Lord! Lord!’ will enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Only those who actually do the will of my Father in heaven will enter. On judgment day many will say to me, ‘Lord! Lord! We prophesied in your name and cast out demons in your name and performed many miracles in your name.’ But I will reply, ‘I never knew you. Get away from me, you who break God’s laws.’ “Anyone who listens to my teaching and follows it is wise, like a person who builds a house on solid rock. Though the rain comes in torrents and the floodwaters rise and the winds beat against that house, it won’t collapse because it is built on bedrock. But anyone who hears my teaching and doesn’t obey it is foolish, like a person who builds a house on sand. When the rains and floods come and the winds beat against that house, it will collapse with a mighty crash.”
Matthew 7:21‭-‬27 NLT

WE MUST DECIDE we are no satisfied with knowing OF our Savior alone!

WE WILL BE THE BELIEVERS WHO INTIMATELY KNOW GOD AND TAKE UP our cross to FOLLOW JESUS!

WE WILL BE THE REMNANT THAT WALKS IN THE AUTHORITY AND POWER OF THE HOLY SPIRIT!!

Love you all enough to say the hard to hear TRUTH and not just the feel good promises.

Have a blessed life.

THERE’S GOT TO BE MORE

BEWARE & BE-AWARE.

“REAL TALK WITH PK.”

Do you ever scream from the inside “There’s Got to Be More!”

Do you ever have the feeling that you are chasing something in life that won’t fully satisfy you? Pay attention to that feeling. It’s from God.

We’re not just talking about substance abuse issues, although drinking and pursuing other addictions are certainly ways of chasing something futile. But we’ve also known a lot of “good church people” who sit in a service every week—or who preach from a pulpit to those people—who feel themselves to be far from God. They’re “successful” or “put together” or “righteous” on the outside, but they’re missing God on the inside. They keep busy with religious practices and work, school, or family, but it just isn’t enough. They long for God to feel real to them.

That longing is the first spiritual awakening for all of us finding our way back to God: “There’s got to be more.”

When you long for a love that is deep and satisfying, when you want to give yourself to something that will truly make a difference, or when you seek answers to life’s most difficult questions, you are looking for God.

You’ve really got two options:

  1.  You can keep searching to fill these longings on your own, or
  2.  You can look to the One who gave you those longings in the first place.
 

Our longing for real love goes all the way back to how the human race was made in the first place.

God intended that we experience his love both directly from him and through others we relate to in a healthy way.

What we long for, God doesn’t just have but actually God is. He is love and he pursues us with love.

We’ve heard it said that every man who knocks on the door of a brothel is really looking for God. If you are knocking on the door of some self-destructive behavior or relationship, you might actually have arrived at an important point in your journey back to God. Why? Because the disappointment you inevitably feel in cheap substitutes will make you wonder where you can find real love. Will you open yourself up to letting God fill your longing to love and be loved?

What do your activities this week suggest about what you think will satisfy you?

Love ya. PK
 
1 John 4:17‭-‬21 NLT

And as we live in God, our love grows more perfect. So we will not be afraid on the day of judgment, but we can face him with confidence because we live like Jesus here in this world. Such love has no fear, because perfect love expels all fear. If we are afraid, it is for fear of punishment, and this shows that we have not fully experienced his perfect love. We love each other because he loved us first. If someone says, “I love God,” but hates a fellow believer, that person is a liar; for if we don’t love people we can see, how can we love God, whom we cannot see? And he has given us this command: Those who love God must also love their fellow believers.

THE TONGUE

BEWARE & BE-AWARE…

Again I will say what some may not.
It is not ok to curse those you know or use foul language. Stop loosing your cool and making excuses as a believer for cursing and speak LIFE.

“Real Talk With PK!”
 
No matter how you try to rationalize or EXCUSE profanity, dirty jokes and gossip; IF YOU ARE A CHRISTIAN you should know its not ok.
 

“But now is the time to GET RID OF anger, rage, malicious behavior, slander, and dirty language.”
Colossians 3:8 NLT

“Get rid OF” or “Don’t Use” are not suggestions to consider but commands prompting spiritual maturity. WHY??

Simple: We can not reach the world by acting like the world if we expect to lead them to Christ.

We must SHOW the world that the power of the Holy Spirit can EMPOWER every part of our lives & even tame the most vile member of the human body- OUR “UNTAMABLE” Tongue!

In the book of James we are assured that without HELP tongue can not be tamed. But with Christ everything changes when we yield control to HIM.
 
IF WE ARE NO DIFFERENT after coming to Jesus– the lost will not want what looks and sounds like the same pain they face as sinners seeking hope!
 
“Don’t use foul or abusive language. Let everything you say be good and helpful, so that your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them. And do not bring sorrow to God’s Holy Spirit by the way you live. Remember, he has identified you as his own, guaranteeing that you will be saved on the day of redemption. Get rid of all bitterness, rage, anger, harsh words, and slander, as well as all types of evil behavior. Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you.”
Ephesians 4:29‭-‬32 NLT
 

I DIDN’T SAY IT GODS WORD DOES.

Love ya. PK.

THE HUMAN HEART

BEWARE & BE-AWARE-
Today remember with me one POWERFUL TRUTH as we navigate a year of VICTORY;
“WE ARE NOT CALLED TO FOLLOW OUR HEARTS!”
“REAL TALK WITH PK!”

“The human heart is the most deceitful of all things, and desperately wicked. Who really knows how bad it is? But I, the Lord , search all hearts and examine secret motives. I give all people their due rewards, according to what their actions deserve.”
Jeremiah 17:9‭-‬10 NLT

Jesus himself said;
“But the words you speak come from the heart—that’s what defiles you. For from the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, all sexual immorality, theft, lying, and slander.”
Matthew 15:18‭-‬19 NLT

He also said; Luke 12:34 “For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.”
SO THIS IS WHY WE MUST “LOVE THE LORD OUR GOD WITH ALL OF OUR HEART , soul, mind and strength!!”

WE HAVE been called to follow JESUS NOT OUR HEART! One major reason many are walking away from ministry, family and Gods perfect will in record numbers is because they have believed a lie. “Follow your heart!”

NO!!! We don’t follow our hearts WHILE OBEDIENTLY living the “CALLED” LIFE! WE obey Gods Word and follow HIS DECREES.

“For God saved us AND CALLED US to live a holy life. HE DID THIS, not because we deserved it, but because that was HIS plan from before the beginning of time—to show us HIS grace through Christ Jesus. And now HE has made all of this plain to us by the appearing of Christ Jesus, our Savior. He BROKE THE POWER OF death and illuminated the way to life and immortality through the Good News. And God CHOSE ME TO BE A PREACHER, an apostle, and a teacher of this Good News.”
2 Timothy 1:9‭-‬11 NLT

WHEN we want to give up or walk away from who, where and what GODS plan is—- often God will remind us OF WHO CHOSE WHO!!!

We do not choose our ministry, the church we attend, what gift of the Holy Spirit that will be imparted to us. GOD DOES.
Pride in our heart will deceive us into believing we have that power or “RIGHT!”
But the truth is by faith we have forfeited our rights for the sake of “Taking up our cross to follow JESUS!”

Thank you ABBA for choosing us!

Love ya.

YOU’RE NOT SOBER WHEN YOU SMOKE WEED

BEWARE & BE-AWARE. I’ll say it even when it’s not popular in this current culture!!

“Real Talk With PK!”

YOU ARE NOT SOBER when you are SMOKING WEED!!!

While I was growing up in Hawaii I smoked entirely TOO, TOO MUCH WEED. Alcohol was 1st then before long I began marijuana and in Hawaii is was REALLY GOOD let me tell ya.
I’m not boasting in this but want to make a valid point that requires knowing the quality of what I was smoking.
 
By standards that measured good by how “stoned” you became, I never smoked weed then remained SOBER. The opposite was true. It altered my mood and although I did not black out drunk – myself and EVERYONE who joined me all changed. Some became hyperactive and funny while others mellowed out and had not a care in the world.

The point?????
WHY ARE WE CONSTANTLY fighting for the right to excuse why we “CAN” USE this or that while we cope or need to relax???????

What we should be asking ourselves as it pertains to any substance that we use is;
“WHY ISN’T JESUS ENOUGH TO US TO TAKE THE EDGE OFF?”
FOR THE BELIEVERS our fight is so dangerous that GOD’S WORD REQUIRES US TO BE “ALERT & SOBER MINDED!!” Not just for ourselves but for every life we will come in contact with as in our lives!! We can not become someone’s stumbling block because Jesus has not become enough in our life!!

“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:”
1 Peter 5:8 KJV

Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour.”
1 Peter 5:8 NLT

I DIDN’T SAY IT  – GOD’S WORD DOES!!
We can’t lead people to find FREEDOM and expect them to remain sober if we are drinking a few beers with them and smoking a joint!!!

“But you must be careful so that your freedom does not cause others with a weaker conscience to stumble. For if others see you—with your “superior knowledge”—eating in the temple of an idol, won’t they be encouraged to violate their conscience by eating food that has been offered to an idol? So because of your superior knowledge, a weak believer for whom Christ died will be destroyed. And when you sin against other believers by encouraging them to do something they believe is wrong, you are sinning against Christ. So if what I eat causes another believer to sin, I will never eat meat again as long as I live—for I don’t want to cause another believer to stumble.”
1 Corinthians 8:9‭-‬13 NLT

Have a blessed day and remember JESUS IS ENOUGH!!!

Love ya. PK

EMBRACE GOD’S WORD

PASTORS WILL Often (in our desperation) beg people to embrace God’s Word. We have seen the Word of God change lives & set the captive FREE including our very OWN.

SO WE BELIEVE. WE believe in God’s Word and what it says concerning sinful lifestyles versus living a life as reflections of Jesus our Lord & Savior!!

We don’t DEMAND that those we witness & share this Word with to believe what we are sharing. We deliver the Gospel & appreciate the fact that some with accept it and others will not. We do not walk into the home of those who disagree and demand they change “OR ELSE!” We don’t threaten to ruin their lives if they don’t believe Gods Word. NOR do we hate them for not agreeing with our absolutely beliefs in Gods Word and what it defines as sinful. The opposite is true however!! We love people enough to share the POWERFUL freedom found in Jesus and living like He. Says we should in this crazy ride called “LIFE!”

Today as threats rise against BIBLE TEACHING PASTORS AND CHURCHES THIS IS WHAT WE MUST UNDERSTAND!!
SIN IS SIN!! And just because unbelievers don’t like what we believe, it will never GIVE THEM THE RIGHT TO FORCE US TO ACCEPT WHAT WE BELIEVE GOD DECLARED AS SIN.
From gossip & slander to fornication and homosexuality – SIN AS DEFINED IN GOD’S WORD will not change for the sake of becoming more “TOLERANT!”

God is the ultimate and sovereign judge for sin. Homosexuality is sin by His order; it is not decided by public opinion or deceived/false clergy. Changing societies do not dictate God’s standards. Sin is defined by God for us in the Bible. It is the source for what God says is holy and righteous or sin and abomination. Hebrews 13:8 states that God is the same yesterday, today, and forever; he does not “go with the flow.”

God’s Word says that homosexuality is unnatural, a perversion, an abomination, fornication, vile affections, and a great sin against Him. He states any sexual act outside of marriage is adultery (hetro or homo sexual). Sex is to be between man and woman within marriage.

Is homosexuality a sin? What does this mean?
God’s design for natural sexual relationships is part of His plan. Homosexuality falsifies what God designed. Sin often means not only rejecting God but denying or rejecting how and why we are made. Though it may be considered acceptable by some today — even in some churches — it is not acceptable to God. And we need to take that seriously.

Sexual sins were rampant in the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah. (This is the origin of the word sodomy.) Despite warnings, they refused to repent. God destroyed those cities and it was recorded as a warning to all future generations (Genesis 18:20-21, Genesis 19:4-5, 2 Peter 2:6). Some additional scriptures on homosexuality are found in:
    Leviticus 18:22
    Leviticus 20:13
    Romans 1:26-27

The price paid for homosexuality and other fornications are told in:
    1 Corinthians 6:9-10
    Jude 6-7
    Romans 1:18

In spite of the growing secular humanist trend to think “it’s ok to be gay,” it’s not a righteous lifestyle. Most vocal Christians are NOT homophobic, but are trying to share Christ’s love for homosexuals and trying to keep them from horrific judgment. THIS IS WHERE OUR DESPERATION COMES FROM AS PASTORS!!

SO…. IS homosexuality a sin? Is there hope for forgiveness?

There absolutely IS HOPE for homosexuals. God can cleanse and purify ALL persons from sin. As many scriptures as there are that address sin, there are more that speak of forgiveness and redemption. He is able to give deliverance to any who sincerely desire true freedom and salvation. Such is demonstrated in 1 Corinthians 6:11 (KJV): “And such were some of you: but you are washed, but you are sanctified, but you are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God.” This verse says “some of you were,” meaning they became PAST acts.

We are offered the empowering Spirit of God to help us turn from our sins. Coming out of drug addiction, homosexuality, pornography, or other sin isn’t always easy but God will provide the way. Christians are to “love” into the kingdom, those who desire repentance and to live by His natural plan.

Jesus Christ died on the cross for all of our sins and rose again the third day. He desires that we repent and be forgiven of our sins by coming into a personal relationship with Him.

I PRAY IF YOU ARE A BELIEVER WE ALL STOP DEMANDING OTHERS CHANGE AND START ASKING GOD TO OPEN EYES AND CHANGE HEARTS.

IF YOU ARE AN UNBELIEVER I PRAY YOU ALSO STOP DEMANDING ACCEPTANCE OF WHAT WE SIMPLY CAN NOT COMPROMISE IN!

LETS AGREE TO DISAGREE AND STILL BE CIVIL OR KIND TO ONE ANOTHER!!!!
From politics to our beliefs in God or lack there of—- WE CAN (MYSELF included) ALL LIVE WITHOUT DEMANDING OUR OWN WAY & attempting to force others to accept what they can not compromise in.

“Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance.”
1 Corinthians 13:4‭-‬7 NLT

God bless you all.

OFFENDING THE PHARISEES

Matthew 15.12-14
“Then the disciples came to him and asked, “Do you realize you offended the Pharisees by what you just said?” Jesus replied, “Every plant not planted by my heavenly Father will be uprooted, so ignore them. They are blind guides leading the blind, and if one blind person guides another, they will both fall into a ditch.”
 
What happens when rebellious people join rebellious people deciding to ignore being spiritually submissive?
  • They end up back in the same miserable dysfunctional lives they once begun recovering from.
  • They take back their addiction, pain and insanity then blame who those God used to deliver them . . . Pride is ugly but God is a God of many chances . . . Don’t be the blind running to the blind & back into slaver . . .  THIS YEAR IS THE YEAR OF “VICTORY!”
HUMBLY come back into His will and 🔌 plug back into the BODY Gods placed you into so you don’t find yourself stuck with the rebellious in a ditch.
Blessings
