I believe that these words might be a little controversial, it will spark within you either support or strong disagreement.  I don't believe that you will be able to walk away neutral on what I am going to share with you about the state of the church in North America. 

I pray that as your emotions begin to rise up and boil over, please allow the words I share be filtered through the word of God and prayer and soul reflection. I pray you will seek access to the Spirit of God to aid you in the ...

Stand Amid the Rubble!

Posted by Jonathan Keener on Thursday, April 2, 2009, In : Prophesies 

If you have ever read these blogs you know that I believe we are in the midst of difficult days.  I believe that all institutions, governments, churches, families, and ministries are being tried in the fire of refinement or they are being judged for their lack of response to God's overtures of grace.

You Are My Beloved

Listen, My Beloved,

Everywhere you look today, look for love…you will see me.

See love in the eyes of family and friends

See love in the eyes of a stranger.

Wherever you go today, know that I am there.

I am in the deepest valley and on the highest mountaintop.

I am in the darkest shadows and the brightest light.

I live within your heart as peace, strength, and hope.

Beloved, follow your heart today, and trust Me.

Follow your heart today,...

Words


Jonathan David Keener There have been times when the Lord has interrupted my day with strong utterances from the Father thru the Spirit. These are words that flow from my heart and personal, and sometimes the Lord will have a word sent to me by another. They are timely words from the Body of Christ and encourage my heart. If we allow the Lord to move on our hearts we will hear collectively the Voice of the Spirit calling us back to the Father. By a deepening in our love of the Savior of all mankind. Shalom, Jonathan
