A Living Nativity: Christ Is Born

A Living Nativity

 

This Friday, Saturday and Sunday, December 4, 5, & 6th you can travel 3 miles east of Peabody, Kansas to see a live Biblical play that goes back to Genesis and takes you through Jesus birth and years here on earth. There are live animals and the actors do a magnificent job at re-telling His story.  I attended last year and can’t wait to take my grandchildren this year.   Go to http://www.christisborn.org/ for more information. 

 

THANKSgiving

thanksgiving-family-800x450

 

We are all busy making plans to gather with family, and prepare special recipes they all enjoy, but here is a quick reminder about a spiritual preparation. In the past, Governor Brownback has issued a statement encouraging all of us to spend some time reconciling relationships before gathering on Thanksgiving Day.  I mention this now so that we can actually spend some time in prayer seeking the Lord about our friends and family.  Careless words often cause strife and hurt feelings.  How we can become an encourager to those we love the most? We need to be intentional as we seek His wisdom.  What about that son or daughter who’s looking for a job…. how about affectionately boasting about their gifts and what blessings they have to offer. Taking time to look into the eyes of that 3 year old grandson and sitting on the floor to play with them when they get frustrated and cry.Are there people who need a phone call to clear the air over careless words? Thanksgiving….mostly we’re thankful for people…right???

Let’s tell them.

Royal Battle

It was exciting to watch these young men.  My husbands a coach so I know the lessons learned through sports…discipline, teamwork, precision, faithfulness, and persistence. However, I think this team just might have sent a spiritual message around the globe. Did you see Ben Zobrist in the last game get the double, land on base, raise both arms to heaven and visibly say, “Thank you, Lord,” as the world watched? Godly character was seen as these young men never gave up. 

The Lord says,

  • “Good things come to those who wait,”
  • “Be of good courage, and He will strengthen your heart, wait, on the Lord. “

On May 30th, at the Holy Convocation, the Majestic Royal Battle Horse was released over Kansas. God calls us His Royal Priesthood.  The Royal Battle Horse mocks at fear, and is not frightened, nor does he turn back from battle. Yes, let’s celebrate, but let us all learn these lessons to be press in, never give up HOPE!

Body of Christ…this is a call to action in KANSAS.

Did you know that today, nearly 600 young people in Kansas ages 18-26 have aged-out of the foster system and have no place to call home for the holidays? Every young Kansan deserves a bright Christmas season.

This is what we are looking for: We need 600 believers in Kansas to agree to give a gift from the Lord to them for Christmas.  This can be a family project by getting your children involved in earning money, life groups, cell groups, Sunday School and bible study can do this for a missions projects. To participate in “holiday adoptions” by giving gifts for our Kansas young people contact: Community@dcf.ks.gov

Please pray for this project and ask your church, Sunday School class, small group to go together and adopt as many as you can. Let’s do this Kansas!  All for Jesus…All for Jesus!

Show someone formerly in foster care that you care.

“Arise, For this matter is your responsibility. . .”

No matter our age, the Lord will use us if we will be intentional in prayer. Caleb was 85 years old when he asked Joshua for the mountain with the largest giants, saying, “I went to this mountain 45 years ago and told Moses, I was not afraid. Now, give this mountain to me for I’m still strong.”  He conquered the giants and Hebron was his.

We have giants in our land….political correctness, homosexual marriage, abortion, immorality, etc. However, the Lord is with us and mighty to save.

He said, “Arise! For this matter is your responsibility, but we will be with you, be courageous and ACT.” Acts 18:9-11, “Do not be afraid any longer, but go on speaking and do not be silent, for I am with you…” Remember War Room, writing down your specific request in sticky notes and posting them where you pray?  Together we can see the glory of the Lord in our families and our nation.

Adopt a Block – Adopt A Cop

Prayer Walking YOUR Neighborhood – Please share this with your facebook friends.

The disciples, after observing the Lords devotion to prayer said, “Teach us to pray.” It seems everywhere the Body of Christ is awakening to its purposes here on earth. Here in Kansas, we have a potential prayer team in every neighborhood. These team needs to be activated for His glory and our protection.

Therefore, we are joining with neighborhoods all over the nation to launch “Adopt a Block – Adopt a Cop.”

ACTION STEP: Here is what you can do to begin “Adopt A Block – Adopt A Cop” in your neighborhood, city and church. Contact your local Police Department and ask for the name of the Officer or Officers assigned to your neighborhood. Please inform him or her that you are praying specifically for them.  Then pray in your neighborhhood. Walk, bike or simply drive in your car and pray for salvation for your neighbors, get to know them, start building relationships. Then begin praying for protection for your neighborhood and peace of Christ in their homes.

ACTION STEP: Here is a helpful guide from the United Kingdom to get started: http://www.coact.org.uk/pdf/Pray4Police.pdf

The amplified version of James 5:16 says, “The earnest (heartfelt, continued) prayer of a righteous man makes tremendous power available [dynamic in its working].”

Releasing the power of God and His light into this world is our job.

Brownback Is A Hit At Values Voters Summit

 

Last week Governor Sam Brownback was a featured speaker at the Values Voters Summit in Washington D.C. sponsored by the Family Research Council.I wanted to make sure you had an opportunity to hear this pivotal speech.  You will be so proud of our state when you hear the “good news” that for some reason escapes the media. You might ask, why was Governor Brownback invited to come and speak to thousands of conservatives in D.C.? When you watch his speech you’ll know why.  We’ve established dignity among the unemployed as over 6,000 that were on public assistance got a job in the last year. The state of Kansas is now paying for our high school students to attend a technical school during high school to learn a trade to avoid school loans in college and not have to work for minimum wage. Oh, don’t miss the end of this speech.  A rousing standing ovation makes you proud to be a Kansan.

Go See The Movie “War Room”

The movie War Room starts THIS Friday!


Miss Clara, challenges all of us to step into a War Room, which is her prayer closet. She says, “Lord, Call Us to Battle! Lord we need an army of believers who will learn to fight on our knees! Raise them up Lord.”

Is the enemy coming after your family? Has cancer, disease, injury come to your? It’s time for believers to learn to FIGHT. Let”s wage a WAR against the enemy. I encourage you to go to this movie.  Please pass the word, take your friends and family.  I’m saddened that the Church Prayer meetings don’t seem to be a priority to the Bride in general.  If we were seeing the power of the Lord released, churches would be over flowing and demanding prayer meetings come back.  The same power that raised Jesus from the dead is available to us today.

Phillipians says, “That I might know Him and the power of His resurrection being made like Him in His death.”

“. . . unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

The Word of the Lord… “By smooth words he will turn to godlessness those who act wickedly toward the covenant, but the people who know their God will display strength and take action.”  Daniel 11:32

Not only the Word of God, but Our Founding Fathers were pro-life. They covered the protection of the unborn in our Declaration of Independence.  When is the last time you read the Declaration?  You can read it in less than 5 minutes.  I’ve heard that Ted Cruz father had him read it everyday as youngster. 

It’s this part that I’m emphasizing today. “We hold these truths to be self evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.”

“For the eyes of the Lord move to and fro throughout the earth that He may strongly support those whose heart is completely His.”

When we are completely His, we display strength and take action. 

Call your Senator today and ask them to completely defund Planned Parenthood.

Ezekiel said, “Son of Man, can these dry bones live?….speaking live again, speaking live again.”

Have you wondered why revival hasn’t broken out in your area? Have you wondered why prayer is not a priority in your circles? Maybe the Lord is waiting for you to break forth and join with just one other person. At the Holy Convocation we released the challenge to find just one other person that you will be willing to pray with just 15 minutes a week. Watch your family grow spiritually, watch your business prosper, watch conflicts at work disappear, watch relationships heal in the family and your church.

For those of you who were unable to attend the Holy Convocation we will be having 3 follow up meetings in Wichita, June 23-24-25.  These meetings will be held in North Linwood Park at 7 p.m. each evening. We want to sow into Kansas what the Lord is calling for: Away from the sheepishness. The release of the Majestic Royal War Horse as found in Zechariah 10:3-6.
