Spiritual Declension Defined / Renewal Explained

Posted by Jonathan Keener on Sunday, June 8, 2014, In : Sanctification 


Over the last few years I have come to realize a measure of decline in my determination and drive to take the message of the cross to our lost and dying world. At the outset of my call to preach I had so much fire in my belly I could not but preach, sadly, as the Word predicts, decline comes and the passion fades.

Back in 2012 I asked the Lord to reveal to me the state of my heart. We had moved back to NJ, I was tired physically and emotionally, and I knew I was spiritually sleepy to the n...

Soul Crucified with Christ

Posted by Jonathan Keener on Monday, May 13, 2013, In : Sanctification 

Can you and I ever get to the place of living in a way where we are constantly winning against the evil on the inside of us and in the world around us?   

Is it possible to begin a new life where we are consistently overcoming the seductive temptations that confront us every day in our very fast paced, tempestuous and very pagan society?

The kind of temptations that capture control of our redeemed mind and put us in a mind-numbed 
temporally based state of being. 

What and where do these sinful t...

Know, Be, & Do!

Posted by Jonathan Keener on Friday, January 1, 2010, In : Sanctification 

The Lord gave me these words share with our small group gathering, “know, be, and do”.  These words are an aid to simplify the process of the development of a leader in the church of Jesus Christ.  So much of what I have done in the past has been based more in “doing” things for God, but honestly, what can we do for a Christ we barely “know”?  We must first take up our cross and follow Him -- not church dogma, doctrinal arguments, or even the “sacred cows” of our passionate mi...

Jonathan Keener Our call is to be true "christ" ians. Those little christ's who follow the Lamb wherever He goes. Who spread God's fame by proclaiming His message of reconciliation to our world. Playing our part in the epic work of the regathering of the Body of Christ in the Last Days. livinlattes@gmail.com

Where are the prophets?

The calling on my life is to walk in a path similar to those called as messengers of God's revelation to their generation. This would in no way conflict with the work of prophets who wrote the scriptures. The work of the modern day prophet brings his audience back to the written Word. 

This job or assignment is not typically for the pulpit, many times this call leads men and women to connect one on one with pastors, business leaders, divinely selected individuals, and in public forums which the Lord opens to proclaim His message of Reconciliation

Scattered Israel to be regathered


Jer. 31:10

"Hear the Word of the Lord, O you nations, and declare it in the isles afar off, and say: He who scattered Israel will gather him, and keep him, as a shepherd does his flock." 


 Reader, in touching on this point, I would not have you for a moment suppose that the future gathering of Israel depends on anything that man can do. God's counsels and purposes are independent of human strength. The sun will set tonight at its appointed hour, and neither Queen, Lords, nor Commons, Pope, President, nor Emperors — can hasten, prevent, or put off its setting. The tides of the sea will ebb and flow this week in their regular course, and no scientific decree nor engineering skill can interfere with their motion. 

And just in like manner, the promises of God concerning Israel will all be fulfilled in due season, whether we will hear, or whether we will forbear.
