Why do we need Jesus?

End Time regathering of G-d's People in Israel

Repost of word of Lord delivered 2-27-09

This morning at 5:30 am the L-rd spoke a very clear word to me, so much so, that I had to rise quickly out of bed with urgency to write this word from the L-rd. I could have written more but my hand got tired so here is what I received from the L-rd from about the time of 5:45 am - 7:15 am:

Background to the word I received:


The first thing I do when I believe the L-rd is going to run some new words through my spirit is to clean up the area around where I plan to sit and tune into His Voice so I can hear Him and then to prepare my heart to write the words that the L-rd is releasing  into my spirit.   

This morning, while I was scrubbing away on my hands and knees in our kitchen, the L-rd started to repeat something that He has said many times before, "on this floor you find your highest position in Me and My kingdom; doing what you are doing right now, scrubbing the kitchen floor" places you in your high position!

Just as our L-rd emptied Himself of His high position (Phil. 2:7) in the G-dhead to become a servant, so we, in same fashion, take on the “form of a servant” by doing the menial tasks required to restore the people of Christ back the “sanctuary” of His dwelling.


In the reforms of Hezekiah, king of Judah, Hezekiah's first work reformation led him to consecrate the priests and the Levites.  After the priests and Levites were cleansed, Hezekiah issued an edict to have these consecrated ministers remove the wicked idols and vile debris out of the temple of G-d and its sanctuary and cast these vile things into the brook Kidron.  Then they consecrated the place of Yah's worship.

II Chron. 29:5-7

"Hear me, Levites! Now sanctify yourselves, sanctify the house of the L-RD G-d of your fathers, and carry out the rubbish from the holy [place]. For our fathers have trespassed and done evil in the eyes of the L-RD our G-d; they have forsaken Him, have turned their faces away from the dwelling place of the L-RD, and turned [their] backs [on Him]. They have also shut up the doors of the vestibule, put out the lamps, and have not burned incense or offered burnt offerings in the holy [place] to the G-d of Israel.

In that same spirit of reformation that moved Hezekiah to purge the house of G-d, we  must also bring the church of Christ back to Christ's rule and authority over His Bride through workings of His precious Holy Spirit.

*NOTE - Please read the rest of the restorative work of the Levites to gain more understanding of the context to the word I received from the L-rd this morning. 

The words received from the L-rd on Feb. 27, 2009 (5:45 am – 7:15 am)


The word comes from the prophecy of Ezra in chapter 1:1-11 (NIV version) and starting in verse 1 where we read: 

Ezra 1:1 

"In the first year of Cyrus king of Persia,in order to fulfill the word of the L-rd spoken by Jeremiah, the L-rd moved the heart of Cyrus king of Persia to make a proclamation throughout his realm and to put it in writing:"

I, the Living G-d, always fulfill the words that flow through my prophets.  This is new time where a new king (Cyrus) has been appointed by Me to make a proclamation throughout the entire realm (world) to release my chosen ones to rebuild my temple, which are My people, those purchased with My Son's kingly and eternal blood.

The blood of My Son, the Christ, secured a “covenant” with My People that speaks better things then that of Abel's.  I will “restore” and even resurrect My purposes in the earth realm.  The resurrection of My work and word is Christ's chief and primary work in the earth.

For the earth is His and all that is contained therein, His blood secured the earth realm to do with as He pleases.  The “scepter” is in His right Hand and He moves that “holy and powerful scepter” at the sway of His sovereign will.

"Destroy this temple and in three days I will raise it up again" (word received 2-24-09) 

I will restore My People and My temple on the earth to prepare for My Son's return.

Ezra 1:2 

"This is what Cyrus king of Persia says: " 'The L-rd, the G-d of heaven, has given me all the kingdoms of the earth and he has appointed me to build a temple for him at Jerusalem in Judah".

The body of Christ:

The leader that the L-rd has appointed is “ready” to launch G-d's people back to do the work they were saved and separated by G-d to do on the earth.  My people have been languishing for years under heavy burdens and forced labor but they are now being summoned to go back to build the Lord's temple.  I have made all the arrangements for them to perform the work of restoring My kingdom on the earth.

Ezra 1:3,4

"Anyone of his people among you--may his G-d be with him, and let him go up to Jerusalem in Judah andbuild the temple of the L-rd, the G-d of Israel, the G-d who is in Jerusalem. And the people of any place where survivors may now be living are to provide him with silver and gold, with goods and livestock, and with freewill offerings for the temple of G-d in Jerusalem' "


Serve Now! Do it Today! This work of rebuilding G-d's people, which are the temple of the L-rd.  Today we must reconstruct the “new” man in Christ to fashion him according to Christ's design!  The intention of King Jesus is to reconstruct His Church globally. 

His people (Gentiles & Jews) who are scattered all over the world shall rise up NOW!  Today we are to go up to Jerusalem (in the spirit) to start this rebuilding work!


This work is real just as the work in the days of Ezra.  This work must be done we the people of G-d must obey!  The funding is demanded by the King of the Universe our L-rd and His Christ!  Monies are being funneled to accomplish and to provide the necessary resources to assist in travel expenses and other requirements to initiate the rebuilding process!

This work is underway as we sit here today!  It is already underway by virtue of this Divine edict!  Every man and woman called to this reclamation project must understand their role and function in the Spirit.  The work is being managed by G-d Himself.  Accept your role in this work with gladness of heart for this work shall be accomplished in My Power and for My glory!

We are the people of G-d today.  We have already been chosen to be in His kingdom at this time.  We are the survivors that He has brought through the fire of His refinement!

We must ask the L-rd to show us who He has chosen and we must believe that they will hear His call!  We are His voice when we speak to the people, we do not speak of our own accord.  No!  When we speak we are actually speaking with His Authority and under His influence!

Yes, Today! Your words are my edict to the world.  My church shall rise up in a new energy and with new understanding.

The sleepiness is broken off her she will see what I see!  They will have My Leadership! Not the Saul’s of their own choosing, but MY Davidic leaders that will serve My People. These leaders from Me will fight and work tirelessly in My Kingdom.  They have my faith! They march at the beat of My Drum!  They do not worship the Baal’s and Ashtoreh’s. 

They see like I see like I see with sickness of heart all that is going on in the land. My people perish for a lack of knowledge, but no more! They will see because My Spirit has been released to bring revelation and understanding.

We must understand today that many will pass by this divine opportunity to build My temple but years later they will regret their decision to not build with us, the Lord's people.  The rebuilding work will go on in the spirit of perseverance endowed by the Living God. 

So when we invite our ministry friends in we will know immediately if they are hearing God's clarion call to come up to Jerusalem and rebuild the Lord's temple.  

Amen and Amen.

Ezra 1:5

"Then the family heads (clans) of Judah and Benjamin, and the priests (worshipers and intercessors) andLevites (keepers of the temple of G-d..) -- everyone whose heart G-d had moved -- prepared to go up andbuild the house of the L-rd in Jerusalem."

Ezra 1:6

"All their neighbors assisted them with articles of silver and gold, with goods and livestock, and with valuable giftsin addition to all the freewill offerings."

Because I declared this word of proclamation it is coming to pass immediately!  Your assistance is on the way!  It will come from those who know your plight.  They are encouraged by your vision.  They are seeing that the L-rd G-d is with you! 

This rebuilding project or restoration work will be established by freewill offerings.  The word of G-d says in Ps.110:3:

"Your people [shall be] volunteers ithe day of Your power; In the beauties of holiness, from the womb of the morning, You have the dew of Your youth".(NKJV) 

Ezra 1:7 

"Moreover, King Cyrus brought out the articles belonging to the temple of the L-rd, which Nebuchadnezzar had carried away from Jerusalem and had placed in the temple of his god".

A new order is in place, a new king Cyrus has been appointed by our G-d to give back what rightly belongs to Our G-d.  Moved by sovereign decree and irresistible power, Cyrus will give to us, our people, our leadership, and our families that which rightly belongs to them; they are to place these things back into the house of our G-d.

The spirit of religion and stale worship will be replaced with living and life giving praise, simple, unvarnished, the unhewn stones of G-d's altar of praise will carry up into the heaven-lies, a sweet aroma in the nostrils of our King!


Praise the L-rd!  Let every heart be lifted up!  Fling out your banners, for the L-rd our G-d reigns even over pagan leaders.  Even those who have fought My work on the earth.  They all belong to Me, says the L-rd!

Fresh ideas and gifted men and women of G-d will be released from their jailhouses to the serve the living G-d!  Irresistibly they will be drawn like a magnet to this work restoring My People and My Bride.

This is My work, it is miraculous!  All of My people are in My hand. I am their leader!  I control this work.  Anyone who touches My glory like Uzziah who laid his unsanctified hands on the ark of the covenant, they will be taken out!  Hear me, this work is sacred and holy.

This about My worship.  Do not try to meddle with this mighty work!  Do not add your handiwork to it!  My people keep meddling with My worship.  You will not do this, says the L-rd!  For I am preparing My sacrifice as I did with My people there in Jerusalem!

My work shall increase and any those who dare touch my altar with an unclean hand,; those who are not washed in Me and in My blood, these will be put away and sacrificed, says the L-rd.

The fear of My Name will be established on the earth.  The people will see and fear for I AM the I AM, the beginning and the end, the Alpha and the Omega, says the L-rd.


The glory of the L-rd shone about them on the mount of My transfiguration!  You will begin to understand what My glory is all about.  This is very heavy for you and it will transform your thinking and it will change your ways, says the L-rd!

Ezra 1:8-11

"Cyrus king of Persia had them brought by Mithredath the treasurer, who counted them out to Sheshbazzar the prince of Judah. This was the inventory:

gold dishes -- 30

silver dishes – 1,000 

silver pans -- 29

gold bowls -- 30

matching silver bowls – 410 

other articles --1,000.

In all, there were 5,400 articles of gold and of silver.  Sheshbazzar brought all these along when the exiles came up from Babylon to Jerusalem.

These articles of G-d are His chosen people and their ministries and vision.  They will establish their ministries in Jerusalem as they build out their work on the earth.

My people will share in My Bounty as they take care of My People who are in the Land. They need My resources, My church, to accomplish what must be accomplished to complete My work on the earth, says the L-rd our G-d!

Let all who hear and receive these words, that these words are of a divine origin, they are not of man.  They come from heaven to earth!  You are not alone, I bought you at a tremendous price! It is a finished work.  Press On!  Don't delay!  For I Am coming soon, says the Living G-d – Yah – A covenant-keeping G-d

The end! 


I invite any of you who are apostles and prophets of the L-rd to pray over these words to test them to insure that they are of the L-rd and the timing of these events.


Many blessings,


Jonathan David Keener



The Ministry of the Night

A very sweet believer decided one night to send this word from AW Tozar to people on his email list. Ricky Aquas didn't know what I was wrestling with the last few days but this word was exactly what I needed. Let me share it with you struggling saint.

I Jn. 5:6-8, “This is the one who came by water and blood, Jesus Christ; not with the water only, but with the water and with the blood.  And it is the Spirit who bears witness, because the Spirit is the truth.  For there are three that bear witness, the Spirit and the water and the blood; and the three are in agreement.” 

While scholarly men still attempt to teach that Pentecost was a one-time historical experience, even to the peril of their hearers, the Lord still baptizes His...

Part 2 - Fire Baptism of Jesus Christ

Part 2 

I want to ask this question of those of you who have taken the call to serve Christ with your entire life, “do you believe that Jesus still prepares His servants today to preach His message the same way that His first century disciples were prepared by Him to preach His resurrection on the day of Pentecost?” 

We have this reality in common with the 1st century believers. Like you and I, Christ’s disciples were scared and were waiting for...

The Fire Baptism of Jesus Christ!

Part 1

I have witnessed over my most of my adult life such a high level of antagonism, fear, and confusion on what it means to be “baptized” in the Holy Spirit. What we might call the immersion of fire, or, immersion in the Holy Spirit.


In this writing, I hope to reshape, in biblical fashion, the conversion experience that was intended to be normative for all believers in Jesus – Yahshua. That the baptism experience of the Holy Spirit is to ...

God the Holy Spirit - Part 1

December 6, 2010

God The Holy Spirt

For so many people in the church today there remains a great misunderstanding about God the Holy Spirit. But current spiritual landscape dictates that we face head-on things of the spirit realm.  Strong delusions are coming to the church that will force us to agree with God and His "sent" ones to prepare HIs People for the close of the Church Age.

One doesn't have to search hard to find claims of Holy Spirit manifestations of healings, words of revelation, supernatural mir...

Quick Fix or Complete Overhaul!

April 2, 2009

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!

April 2, 2009

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.

Exposure of our heart to one another and our sincerity of communication will carry us through these difficult times.  We know that the same Lord who wooed us into the family of God is the same L...

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
