Into Your Hands

Posted by Jonathan Keener on Tuesday, January 19, 2010, In : Jesus Christ 

Soul piercing agony.  Flesh withering sorrow of heart.  Gut wrenching desertion of close friends.  Horribly brutal physical torture.  Foes spitting shamelessly in your face.  Mocking and rueing of fellow and natively sinful mortals.  


This scorn was measured by the disrespectful tearing of clumps of hair from your once glorious beard.  Seeking to take your natural and glorious created body and holy head, to then, tear away at the face of love.  Loneliness.  False accusations.   Death sentenc...

The Amazing Christ Message

Posted by Jonathan Keener on Thursday, January 7, 2010, In : Jesus Christ 

Lest we ever forget, the power of any ministry is the glorious touch of Jesus Christ!  His amazing message animates all true gospel work wrought by His grace.  If we try to build our ministries on any other foundation but that which has already been laid by Christ and His apostolic leaders, then our work will not meet with true success and our preaching and our discipling of His sheep will not be touched by His power, to see real positive change in the shipwrecked lives that surround all of u...

Kingdom Support Services


Jonathan Keener - Overseer 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

LLI Mission & Values

The Path of Restoration of the Bride of Jesus Christ 

  • Intercessory Prayer of agreement by two or three like-minded believers in a geographical location.
  • Establish clear strategic geographic targets to undo Satan's government of the targeted area - bring your will and skill to connect to local community and its government to help better local community.
  • Build a community (cities of refuge) in targeted and strategic areas that include access to natural resources where training in skills, working with your hands, basic functional education, restore the man and his soul, train in leadership by example - mentoring rising generation.
  • Re-preach the gospel according to manner that Our Jesus (Yeshua's) showed in His lifestyle, calling men everywhere to repent and receive all of Him and His soon coming kingdom.
  • Restore the role of "ambassadors" of the ministry of reconciliation. We stand between heaven and hell to call men to a peace treaty with heaven to restore peace with their Maker and Judge.
  • Walking as Our Lord walked to raise up true life-giving disciples, followers of Our Lord's words and ways making a clean break from the world and any false loyalty to man-made ecclesiastical Nicolatian  religious orders.
  • To inspire unity in the Body of Christ around the essentials of the historic faith bequeathed to us from our forefathers. In His way, and in His time, that the world may see that we are one as our Father and His Son are One.
  • Build a team of diverse God the Father ordained leaders that fit the Biblical model of those called to be ambassadors of Christ, a group called to raise up leaders who hear the Voice of Spirit. A true five fold group of leaders.
  • To love sinners enough to go evangelistically where they hang out and meet them in their ditches in the love of Our Savior.
  • Equip the saints by praying over them and speaking prophetically into their lives. Give them Spiritual guidance.
  • To encourage the Body of Christ to work together, using all their spiritual gifts, and so we can foster positive change in any community where we have been strategically placed by the Lord. 
  • Gather the elders, those the Father is calling out to be the next generation shepherds of His Flock, the David's, not the Saul's of the past, men and women who have sold all to follow the Lamb.
  • Gather called out elect  Jews, Gentiles, and Muslims that make up the remnant of God, a diverse and unique gathering of saints from every tongue and nation.
  • Sponsor trips to Israel to establish our understanding of Our unified place in the Land and with all of His People scattered abroad.
  • Get involved in all work and in all facets of life.
  • Raise up teams of Holy Spirit trained and prepared ambassadors of His peace who come through the process of training as priests to God are sent out to the Spirit-led places where sinners like us live and operate.
  • Open up homes and "other" intimate settings for the purpose of training and equipping the "saints" and where we openly display Christian hospitality and where we share material things. 
  • Sending out Gospel workers who establish churches that are biblically-governed and prepared to be houses of agape love and purity and in whom the power of heaven dwells.
  • Reestablish the family to the rising generation so the newly converted can visibly  "see" and "feel" firsthand the love of husband and wives and the brethren manifested in real and tangible ways.

The Life and Times of

The Keener Family 

Over the last few years

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.
