Opening Scene of Job 2020

Job 1:1 There was a man in the land of Uz, whose name was Job; and that man was blameless and upright and one who feared God and shunned evil...
Jebediah Orion Blackburn is the wealthiest man alive according to Forbes and Wikipedia. His family called him Job for short. He never took to any of the other nicknames and eventually he made it his moniker of choice. The press even caught on to it and began to publish articles with titles such as: "Job Strikes Oil Again". No one really knows for sure what Job is actually worth. He owns six of the top ten fortune 100 companies. He is a major share holder in real estate, entertainment, cruise lines, resorts, technology, weapons and arms, and many other fields. Disney has turned to him time and time again for help establishing their theme parks. Job has held the top defense contracts for 20 years running; out preforming and out bidding every competitor at most turns. 
Today he is making the hardest decision he makes every day... which tie…

The Author of my Adventure

Hebrews 12:2 NKJVJesus is the Author and Finisher of our faith.  2 Timothy 3:16 NKJVAll scripture is inspired by God. Matthew 4:4 NKJV and Luke 4:4 NKJVJesus always responded to the attacks of the Devil: It is written John 1:1-18 Jesus is THE Word of God... The Word became Flesh...

There is a Story Teller who is above and beyond all story tellers. We are living out the grandest story in His-Story (History). John Eldredge of Ransomed Heart Ministries wrote an amazing book called Wild at Heart. He spoke of this grand story. God created Kings use His power in His Authority to rule this planet. Those Kings fell, died, there were ransomed and redeemed. Authors like John Eldredge, Ted Dekker, Frank Peretti,  Bill Meyers, have written many books exploring this strange and beautiful tale that we are living in and through. 
Everything that is said, written, or preformed of any eternal significance will refer to, quote, or be influenced by this book, this love story, this instruction manual, this epi…

Hearing and Obeying God

1 Samuel 22-23

I see David here is a man of action. He doesn't spend a lot of time preaching to the men to get up and get over it! Rather, he inquires of the Lord frequently (which doesn't sound like an action sometimes to the men wanting a fight, but it is). He get's a clear and direct answer, yes or no. Then he does whatever it is without delay.

I could learn a lesson here from David. Even though I have the Holy Spirit in me now and he didn't, the lesson still applies. David didn't just ask a general question and wait for God to come down and write on the walls or hand him a divine GPS. Instead he had some options in front of him, but waited to hear clearly Yes or No? Kenneth Copeland talks about this from time to time. Learn to hear the voice of God. Start by small things, yes or no things. Is this outfit your choice today? Yes or No? Should we see that movie Yes or No? Should we go to A or B?

Then wait...wait for it... wait for it... an answer will bubble up to th…

Zig Ziglar Quotes

If you treat your wife like a thoroughbred, you'll never end up with a nag.
Zig Ziglar
Little men with little minds and little imaginations go through life in little ruts, smugly resisting all changes which would jar their little worlds.

Zig Ziglar
Money isn't the most important thing in life, but it's reasonably close to oxygen on the "gotta have it" scale.

Assignment

Assignment This week we talked about Assignment.You are not your own. You are the temple of the Holy Spirit. Your' calling is into fellowship with Jesus. You have an assignment from God. Many times people get the idea that in order to be really useful to God they must become Pastors or Teachers. However if God called you to be a real estate agent and help people find and take possession of their strategic position of opportunity and influence, than you are fulfilling the will of God in your assignment there. Kenneth Copeland talks about God trying to maneuver people into the right place, but having to work around pastors trying to be shoe salesmen and shoe salesmen trying to be pastors. There was a story about a man who thought they were called to pastor but they were actually called to be financial planner.

There are two aspects to knowing your assignment. You must know that you are where God wants you to be and work that assignment until he moves you. You should also consider the …

Container of Belief

Belief. 
Containers contain a finite amount of space for material. Only so much water fits in a glass jar. You could have a jar filled with oil and as you pour water into it the water displaces the oil. Even though the majority of the oil is displaced quickly the residue takes a while to leave... you must keep pouring the water, consistently. The overflow is the result of much pouring. 
Faith brings about results through overflow. Through the overflow of the heart the mouth speaks. If faith is inoperative the only reason is a mixed faith container.  If you are meditating The Word of God on a given topic and you are finding that there is resistance inside of you, that is an indication that there is something taking it's place. That something should be identified and consciously removed. Oil and Water do not provide a pure result. Just oil makes good for cooking, just water makes good for drinking. Both together are bad for drinking and make a mess in a frying pan. 
How do we identify w…

Overcoming: Falling Short

1 Thessalonians 3:10 The New English Bible

...we pray most earnestly night and day to be allowed to see you again and to mend your faith where it falls short...

It's comforting to know that Paul isn't saying "How dare you let your faith fall short!" So often the devil comes along and berates us for falling short in one area of life or another. We can let this become a situation where we allow condemnation to make us feel bad for falling short. However these is NO condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus. I am in Christ, therefore there is no condemnation for me. Yes I may fall short from time to time. I may not be as loving as I could have been, I may have been rude or just not done as much as I knew I should...

This type of "Man I should have done better..." is a trick of the enemy to get you to beat yourself down. However being humble is not about beating yourself down but about lifting Jesus up! The person who truly knows who they are IN-HIM (CHRIST) …

Fathers

1 Thessalonians 2:11-12


The New English Bible (Out of Print):
"As you well know, we dealt with you one by one, as a father deals with his children, appealing to you by encouragement, as well as by solemn injunctions, to live lives worthy of the God who calls you into his kingdom and glory. "

The Good News Translation:
You know that we treated each one of you just as parents treat their own children. We encouraged you, we comforted you, and we kept urging you to live the kind of life that pleases God, who calls you to share in his own kingdom and glory.

Fathers are to encourage, comfort, and urge, but not cause anger or frustration in their kids. Something to think about. Instead of being angry all the time because their noisy... frustrated when they don't listen... happy when they go to bed... try taking a few moments to tell them how good a job they do, how lovely they are, how they are worth something to you and God. Catch them doing something right, instead of catching the…

Self Imposed Restriction: Wisdom or Religion?

COLOSSIANS 2

Colossians 2

Vs 6 
As you therefore have received Christ Jesus as Lord so walk in Him, rooted and built up in Him and established in the faith as you have been taught abounding in it with thanksgiving.

The way you walk in Him rooted and built up and established in faith: Abound with Thanksgiving. How many times do I say "Thank You Sir!" to my Father in heaven? Thank you for sending Your Son, Your Word, Your Spirit, Your Giftings! Thank you for the sunrise and the sunset, the rain and the clear days, thank you for flowers and for snow...etc

Vs16-17
So let no one judge you in food or in drink or regarding a festival or a new moon or Sabbaths which are a shadow of things to come, but the substance is Christ...
VS 21
Why...do you subject yourselves to regulations: "Do not touch, do not taste, do not handle"...
Vs 23
These things indeed have an appearance of wisdom in self-imposed religion, false humility, and neglect of the body, but are of no value against the ind…

Exceed...

2 Peter 1:4 NKJV

Exceed Great Precious Promise... These are the words I want to extract from this verse. Primarily Exceed.
To Exceed:
exceed

EXCEE'D, v.t. [L. excedo; ex and cedo, to pass.

1. To pass or go beyond; to proceed beyond any given or supposed limit, measure or quantity, or beyond any thing else; used equally in a physical or moral sense. One piece of cloth exceeds the customary length or breadth; one man exceeds another in bulk, stature or weight; one offender exceeds another in villainy.


In practical terms. If water were to exceed the boundaries or limits of a glass, it would then overflow. If a pressurized bottle of soda were sealed and filled beyond it's boundaries it might explode. These are natural boundaries. There are also boundaries set by an authority. For example the fire department places a sign in all businesses and public places designating a limit or capacity. The capacity is well below the actual size of the room and the rooms ability to fit more people. A …

Be Loved

Philippians 4 (New King James Version)
Therefore, my BE LOVED and longed-for brethren, my joy and crown, so stand fast in the Lord, BE LOVED.
Be Loved, beloved, loved, dear friends...
Be Loved today! God sent his Word, His Son, His Spirit, His Gifts and Giftings, His Blessing...HIS LOVE... what else can you ask for today? Don't be like the children following Moses throwing fits in the desert... just ask, receive. It's that simple. God never berated anyone for asking for too much, religion does, God doesn't! God chides for not asking enough or at all. He wasn't mad because they wanted water, food, or meat in the desert. He was mad because they complained instead of just asking in faith. Had they been in faith they would have had WAY better food and drink! 
Allow God to love you like He wants to! Stop stopping Him from giving youALL THINGS RICHLY TO ENJOY! Let Him Love You!
Today... BE LOVED.

John 17
I have given them your word...in the world not of it... sent INTO the world...

We are in the world, not of it, and sent into the world to make a difference for Jesus and the people he paid so high a price for!

Not every Technological Advancement is worth pursuing for Christians or viable for ministry. However if it is and it can be done with purpose and focus it should be used. The calling of KCM and it's partners is to preach the word on every available voice!

Psalms 34:8
Oh, taste and see that the Lord is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him!


Whether you choose to be a leader or culture setter or not, you are! People all around you are looking for the real deal in you, they compare you to others who are not living the real deal. They are looking for the hope. 


1 Peter 3:15
...always be ready to give a defense to everyone who asks you a reason for the hope that is in you...


People won't ask you about your hope if you aren't showing any..…

Men's Meeting

7am... Lake Worth

What is the purpose of covenant?

To remove all doubtCovenant is establish to define or re define relationship. There are 10 commandments given to Moses and of those 4 deal with our relationship with God and 6 deal with out relationship with people. The commandments of the covenant are about relationship. When I loose sight of relationship I TRY to receive, instead of just receiving as a child of God. 
Satan ONLY comes to steal, kill, and destroy among his tools for this are to cause division in relationship.
God CANNOT lie Numbers 23.19 Don't put human limitations on a limitless God. How you see God is reflected in how you see yourself. Are you feeling worthless or worth much? This depends on whether you KNOW God's love for you and the price He paid. Value is given by how much someone is willing to pay for something. If God gave His son... How much are you worth?
Heb 6.18 Confirmed by covenant God can't lie.
John 8.44 Satan was a murderer from the very beginning. …

In prayer today:


     Never before has there been a generation with so many tools and resources and so little success. Value has been placed on learning more than doing. Ever learning but never able to come to the knowledge of the Truth.


     It's time to focus. Game Time. Stop seeking ways to get money in and start seeking ways to get the Word out! Promotion will come but it won't satisfy you unless you were already satisfied. Your team needs your anointing, start walking in it! 


     Ever time you feel great financial pressure you stop. Pray thankfullness over what you have and thankfulness over the Promise and Blessing. Then Pray for the needs of others starting with Leaders, Partners, and Family.

     See:
2 Timothy 31 But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come... 7 always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth...10 But you have carefully followed my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, love, perseverance,…

Good Morning, 05/05/2011

The following is a selection of quotes from the KCM Bible Introduction.

"... Forget those things which are behind literally!"

"... Stop working hard to "get" back into God's will. Let Him lead you into it. Relax! Stop looking back at the past. It's over. Everything God has for you is up ahead. Go fot it in faith and joy."

"Somebody once asked me, "Don't you ever have any failures?" No, I don't because I don't lay nine-inning games. We play until I win. I would have a lot opportunities to fail if I would receive failure. My shortcomings are many. But I don't count that as failure. I just count that as practice. But when I win, Praise God, that's for real! I don't play fair with the Devil!..."

Maturity Looks Ahead

How many minutes, hours, or days have I spent thinking about the past? "Man wasn't that a great time..." or "If only I hadn't have done xyz I could be so much further along..." The past, your successes and failures, is always a chain to your future. You can learn from the past failures, even use them as examples of what not to do, or repeat. You can learn from the past successes and implement those tools, trades, or abilities to succeed again. Much of what we do is built experience by experience. However sometimes there is a danger in the past. It becomes a hindrance when you are tempted to spend time reviewing the past so much that you are then replaying it. Images, videos and audio in the mind, replaying what you did or didn't do. The glory days as on the football team, or the low days on the streets.


Philippians 3:13-15 (ESV)(emphasis added)
Brothers, I do not consider that I have made it my own. But ONE THING I do: forgetting what lies behind and stra…
