To Receive is to Believe

"..."If you love me, keep my commands..."

  John 14:15


  • Isn't not written we as believers do not wage war against flesh and blood but against principalities of those in authority (Ephesians 6:12). So when God saw there was much oppression in life due to the judgement of sin he found a way to break all forces of evil once and for all thru Jesus Christ (Romans 5:8)! 


  • Jesus Christ himself overcame death once and for all and resurrected. Therefore death has no hold on Jesus Christ anymore. Its an eternal gift God gave the world that whoever so believe in Jesus Christ will live and eternally (John 3:16).


  • To live by this truth and its principle that with Jesus Christ we live always is the first step of understanding our own personal holy spirit God gave each of us that believe. For it is written, "And you also were included in Christ when you heard the message of truth, the gospel of your salvation. When you believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, who is the guarantee of our inheritance until we acquire possession of it to the praise of his glory." (Ephesian 1:13-14).


  • "And a voice spoke to him again the second time, “What God has cleansed you must not call common.” (Acts 10:15 KJV). We each are on our own journey to 'Christ'! What that means for each of us is different. For the eternal God doesn't make us all the same though we are in the same mind of Christ. And to be in the mind of Christ is having Lord Jesus Christ as our foundation as its written, "Therefore everyone who hears these words of mine and puts them into practice is like a wise man who built his house on the rock. The rain came down, the streams rose, and the winds blew and beat against that house; yet it did not fall, because it had its foundation on the rock." (Matthew 7:24-25).


  • "Therefore, since the promise of entering his rest still stands..." (Hebrews 4:1). Lets all advance ourselves in our own journey to Christ, by utilizing the teachings of Christ in all we do and start the process of sanctification by truth (John 17:17). "...that each of you should know how to possess his own vessel in sanctification and honor..." (1 Thessalonians 4:4).


  • Progress yourself in the knowledge of the Lord and try to apply him in all our living by just believing on the Lord Jesus Christ and therefore do and restore the kingdom of God within you! ALWAYS REMEMBER...For All the promises, no matter how many they are...Is a YES and an Amen thru Jesus Christ (2 Corinthians 1:20)! Thank you Lord Jesus Christ - Amen!

Thanksgiving magnifies God and multiplies us!

    "And out of them shall proceed thanksgiving and the voice of them that make merry, and I will multiply them and they shall not be few, I will also glorify them ,and they shall not not be small."

     Jeremiah 30:1


    • One of many things I love about the word of God is that it allows us all to use our imagination in high wonderful ways. In the process of exalting our mind’s imagination with what the word says it causes us to be multiplied to love/ worship God more and in Thanksgiving.


    • Worshiping God with our minds for it is written, “ Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks.“ (John 4:23). “Sanctify them by the truth; your word is truth.” (John 17:17).


    • This allows our minds to be designed and built in high volumes of imagination from the word of God. And with thanksgiving God multiplies us! What awesome concept depicted by Jeremiah with Gods life in him and now with Jesus Christ God is in ALL of us!


    • Lets put on garments of praise make merry for the Lord magnify his life and God is sure and promised to multiply us and our thanksgiving and worship for him! Continue to acknowledge the Lord in all our living by just believing on the Lord Jesus Christ and therefore do and restore the kingdom of God within you!


    • ALWAYS REMEMBER...For All the promises, no matter how many they are...Is a YES and an Amen thru Jesus Christ (2 Corinthians 1:20)! Thank you Lord Jesus Christ - Amen!

    OCTOBER 2019

        This was my first attempt to produce the RKN from a digital format into a newspaper format for actual distribution in the lower Rio Grande Valley. However due to unforeseen circumstances I was unable to obtain a sound avenue for distribution. Therefore I decided to wait and hold off on actual distribution. Perhaps with time relationships will be mended or other opportunities will open. Thanks to all to read the issues at least online for now and are encouraged to live towards Righteousness with Jesus Christ as the foundation working to live with a healthy conscious for a bondage free life. Glory to Jesus Christ in all we do!

    Jesus Christ Protest for US!

    "Who then is the one who condemns? No one. Christ Jesus who died--more than that, who was raised to life--is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us." 

    Romans 8:34

    The writings in Lamentations chapter 3 explains it well what it means to be in a wrath of God? Starving to live in every area of our lives...


         "I am the one who has seen affliction by the rod of the Lord’s wrath. He has driven me away and made me walk in darkness rather than light; indeed, he has turned his hand against me again and again, all day long... He has besieged me and surrounded me with bitterness and hardship... He has walled me in so I cannot escape he has weighed me down with chains. Even when I call out or cry for help, he shuts out my prayer. He has barred my way with blocks of stone; he has made my paths crooked. He dragged me from the path and mangled me and left me without help... I became the laughingstock of all my people; they mock me in song all day long. He has filled me with bitter herbs and given me gall to drink. I have been deprived of peace; I have forgotten what prosperity is. So I say, “My splendor is gone and all that I had hoped from the Lord.” I remember my affliction and my wandering, the bitterness and the gall. I well remember them, and my soul is downcast within me. Yet this I call to mind and therefore I have hope...


    55 I called on your name, Lord,

        from the depths of the pit.56 You heard my plea: “Do not close your ears    to my cry for relief.”57 You came near when I called you,    and you said, “Do not fear.

    58 You, Lord, took up my case; you redeemed my life.59 Lord, you have seen the wrong done to me.    Uphold my cause!60 You have seen the depth of their vengeance,    all their plots against me. 

    61 Lord, you have heard their insults, all their plots against me—

    62 what my enemies whisper and mutter    against me all day long."


    • Enduring afflictions and hardship can cause us to think God is nowhere in sight...and then I can see Jesus Christ interceding upon each of our cases ...."The punishment of my people is greater than that of Sodom, which was overthrown in a moment without a hand turned to help her." (Lamentations 4:6). 
    • Nowadays with Jesus Christ we are justified... "Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God's wrath through him!" (Romans 5:9). In which God..." who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth" (1 Timothy 2:4).
    • Therefore, "Opponents must be gently instructed, in the hope that God will grant them repentance leading them to a knowledge of the truth, and that they will come to their senses and escape from the trap of the devil, who has taken them captive to do his will." (2 Timothy 2:25).
    • There are times that we are being accused of sin though the plot of evilness was set against us Christians since the beginning. This is why it's imperative to stick to the epistle of Christ thru the trails, and waves of wickedness for when all is exposed we stay blameless. "He will also keep you firm to the end, so that you will be blameless on the day of our Lord Jesus Christ." (1 Corinthians 1:8).
    • Thanks be to the Lord Jesus Christ that thru the holy word under the new convent we are ALL redeemed from the wrath of God.Therefore, just believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and therefore do and restore the kingdom of God within you!
    • ALWAYS REMEMBER...For All the promises, no matter how many they are...Is a YES and an Amen thru Jesus Christ (2 Corinthians 1:20)! Thank you Lord Jesus Christ - Amen!

    " Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind... ”

    Romans 12: 2

      

    • We are all 'works in progress' so there is no need to be ashamed the level you are in. Jesus Christ tells us that we need endurance in order to get the prize (Hebrews 10:36). When dealing with the soul...godly chastisement is not easy to deal with, however; knowing that God does love us, for he gave us Jesus Christ, reminds us his intentions are always good and not evil (Jeremiah 29:11).
    • The 'prize' in general can be applied into many areas of our lives, however; when it comes to the war with the soul God himself is our reward. "...Do not be afraid, ...I am your shield, your very great reward." (Genesis 15:1). When God spoke that word to Abraham it was the beginning of understanding the righteous thoughts to intake about God. There was not much recorded history for Abraham to use as a guide to what he was dealing with... It was developed simply by faith and of course God's presence.
    •  Lord Jesus Christ clearly states the only way to God is thru him. By fallowing Jesus Christ teachings and utilizing the word of God with in our daily living allows us all to be built into the creation God destine.


    • Honorable and Sanctified (1 Thessalonians 4:4)
    • Good intentions not Evil (Jeremiah 29:11)
    • Royal diadems in God's hands (Isaiah 62:3)
    • Fearless, w/ Godly Love and Soundness (2 Timothy 1:7)
    • Redeemed from the curse of the law (Galatians 3:13)
    • Saved from the wrath of God (Romans 5:9)
    • Just to name a few attributes obtained being believers in Jesus Christ!


    •    " All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness... " (2 Timothy 3:16). Add to your journey on the way unto God's desire for you by using the word in your daily living. Know God is always is with you thru Lord Jesus Christ so the relationship will continue to grow each day by faith. 
    • Therefore, just believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and therefore do and restore the kingdom of God within you!
    • ALWAYS REMEMBER...For All the promises, no matter how many they are...Is a YES and an Amen thru Jesus Christ (2 Corinthians 1:20)! Thank you Lord Jesus Christ - Amen!

    Beautiful Liberty

    "As free, and not using your liberty for a cloke of maliciousness, but as the servants of God.”

    (1 Peter 2:16)

    • Liberty is defined as a ‘State of being FREE’, free from oppressive restrictions imposed by authorities on one’s way of life (www.google.com).
      To be free thru Lord Jesus Christ, you are Free indeed (John 8:36). “It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.“ (Galatians 5:1). For “You were bought at a price; do not become slaves of human beings.” (1 Corinthians 7:23).
    • The state of being free from oppression is to also dismiss the maliciousness that once enticed all into darkness. Maliciousness means to get pleasure in evil/bad. Being new creations in Christ Jesus we now take on the desires of God being adopted into his household (Ephesians 2:19). It is written “For I take no pleasure in the death of anyone, declares the Sovereign LORD. Repent and live!” (Ezekiel 18:32). Therefore, adopt new pleasures of good and life, like Father God, and NOT of maliciousness.
    • Frame your mind with the perspective of ‘Divine-TRUTH’! The word of God is TRUTH (John17:17). The TRUTH that we are ALL paid in full and have received FREEDOM! Beautiful Liberty to good healthy desires of ‘divine-righteousness’ unto an abundant life and ultimately eternal salvation. Liberty that is to be embraced and NOT yoked again into restrictions nor bondage.
    • Serving Lord Jesus Christ by a lifestyle change into ‘divine-righteousness’ for truly believing and knowing that God himself is our reward now and forever (Genesis 15:1).
    • Therefore, just believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and therefore do and restore the kingdom of God within you!

    "...shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that bring forth his fruit in its season; his leaf slo shall not wither; and whatsoever he does shall prosper"

    PSALMS 1:3

    • God's plans are ALWAYS good and NOT evil (Jeremiah 29:11), however; trials do happen that might cause us to question his plans for each of us to prosper.
    • The Lord God Almighty is the "God of Seasons" for it's written, "There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens" (Ecclesiastes 3:3).
    • So when facing a season of calamity or hardship recognize that the Lord God Almighty has allowed those activities or trials for only a season allowing you to show your faithfulness with him, for God himself is our reward (Genesis 15:1).
    • "Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trails of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything." (James 1: 2-4).
    • Realize that when God sets something forth he doesn't just start it he also finishes his plans too, "...being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion..." (Philippians 1:6). 
    • The Holy eternal God, 'God of seasons' continues to complete that which he started (in each of us) and in due season to bring forth fruit to prosper us in someway. Therefore, Just Believe and therefore do and restore the kingdom of God within you! 
    • ALWAYS REMEMBER...For All the promises, no matter how many they are...Is a YES and an Amen thru Jesus Christ, (2 Corinthians 1:20)! Thank you Lord Jesus Christ -Amen!

    Jesus said,”  ‘See there!’ For indeed, the kingdom of God is within you.”  "

    Luke 17:21

    • The term ‘kingdom’ means a territory, realm, domain or land that is ruled by a king. Therefore, each of us is a territory in which is at war to be ruled by a superior authority. God gave Jesus Christ to the world so that each of us ruled by truth for the salvation of the soul to be with God eternally (John 3:16). “For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth.” (1 Timothy 2:4-5). Therefore, we are to be ruled by Lord Jesus Christ who is the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords (Revelation 19:16).

    • To elucidate the conflicts, one faces is to understand the highest form of order we are to operate within our own minds. We are to use the bible for correction, doctrine, instruction of godly righteousness (2 Timothy 3:16) and produce a thought process that helps us discern our environment and so we are than operating in the highest form of thinking leading to a mind of Christ and the salvation of the soul (Colossians 1:18). 
    • We all face thoughts, feelings, and even judgments that test us within our own minds of our environment. However, with Jesus Christ who he is FAR above ALL principality, domain, power, and might (Ephesians 1:21) we can overcome and rule over ALL darkness (Luke 10:19).
    • "For the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking but of righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit..." (Romans 17:14).  Just Believe and therefore do and restore the kingdom of God within you! 
    • ALWAYS REMEMBER...For All the promises, no matter how many they are...Is a YES and an Amen thru Jesus Christ, (2 Corinthians 1:20)! Thank you Lord Jesus Christ -Amen!

    "Jesus said, "This sickness is not unto death, but for the glory of God that the son of God might be glorified in it."

    John 11:4

    • “It is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick. I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.” (Mark 2:17). To be sick on the inside is associated with sin and sin leads to death (Romans 6:23).  Death is described as the ‘LOSS of LIFE’ by the Merriam-Webster online (https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/death).
    • We all face the loss of life “…for ALL have sinned and fall short of the glory of God” (Roman 3:23). However, living as Christians we do not live that Death is the ultimate end (Colossians 2:20 and Galatians 4:9).
    • Our thoughts are to be at a higher levels of thinking like: For it is written, “Jesus said to her, "I am the resurrection and the life. The one who believes in me will live, even though they die; 26and whoever lives by believing in me will never die.” John 11:25-26
      • So though we die daily with Jesus Christ we also live and             eternally.
      • Jesus overcame DEATH, and death has NO hold upon us             anymore!
    • Beloved lets ALL take on the mind of Christ and proclaim that nothing is impossible with the HOLY GOD and we are therefore imperishable (1 Peter 1:23) and no weapon form against us will be able to prosper (Isaiah 54:17). Just believe and therefore do!
    • So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of GOD and restore the kingdom of God within you (1 Corinthians 10:31 and Luke 17:21).

    "Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."

    John 14:6

    • You heard it has been said "...you are to take life for life.." (Exodus 21:23). Darkness harasses us all that in order to propel in life we are to use each other thru judgement or dark deeds in order to increase in life.
    • By nature we all have this ambition to do awesome everyday for its God's energy moving within us to be more like him (Genesis 1: 27 & Psalms 66:3).
    • However,  to increase and produce righteousness on the outside we must remember to obtain this living thru righteousness from the inside as well. This will lead to an outcome of  a good life while in the world but also reconciliation with God and to be with him eternally (2 Corinthians 5:18).
    •   Our competency in life is only from God thru Jesus Christ which is why he is our source of life. "Such confidence we have through Christ before God. Not that we are competent in ourselves to claim anything for ourselves, but our competence comes from God." (2 Corinthians 3: 4-5).
    • Darkness tries to convince us that we aren't able to do great or be awesome like our Father (God of the universe). However, God meant for us to conquer and overcome this is why he gave us Jesus Christ (John 16:33).
    •  God gave the world Jesus Christ (John3:16) so that we stay righteousness before him to constantly feed off of Jesus Christ. We are to use Jesus Christ as our source of 'life' (competency or sufficiency). Such as energy, power, skill, ability, knowledge, wealth, freedom from hardship, peace, joy, etc. 
    • Let go of dark deeds! Beloved lets ALL stay righteous before God from the inside, reconcile yourself with him and restore the kingdom of God within you (Luke 17:21).  
    • ALWAYS REMEMBER...For All the promises, no matter how many they are...Is a YES and an Amen thru Jesus Christ, (2 Corinthians 1:20)! Thank you Lord Jesus Christ -Amen!

    "We LOVE because He LOVED us first!" 

    1 John 4:19

    • The theology of 'LOVE' is relative and can be applied to many different concepts or perspectives within life itself. Even Apostle Paul discussed the topic of 'love' and what it means to have 'Godly love' in his letter to the people of Corinth (1 Corinthians 13: 4-8). However, instead of understanding what it means for us to give or show Godly Love, lets  better understand what does it mean that God loved us.
    • We all fall short of the Glory of God (Romans 3:23) even Jesus said himself he was no good (Mark 10:17-18). So who are we to consider ourselves as unworthy of  God's unconditional acceptance and love? 
    • The goodness of God and his plans for us are always good and not evil. He gave us Jesus Christ so that condemnation, judgment, past mistakes etc. will not be our reason to give up in life but to constantly move towards hope and something greater. (Jerimiah 29:11)
    • Don't allow thoughts of negativity encompass in your mind but allow God to rule you for ONLY thru Jesus Christ we are ALL the righteousness of God (Romans 3:22). And therefore we are ALL loved, clean and accepted (Acts 10: 34-35).
    • Though at times its hard to believe God never forsakes us and that his love for us is an unconditional eternal promise but his word will never perish (Matthew 24:35). "For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our LORD." (Romans 8:38-39).
    •  Storms, trials or even tribulations are just opportunities we are able to witness Gods love manifest itself for us to preserve in life and to obtain his promises (Hebrews 10:36). 
    • ALWAYS REMEMBER...For All the promises, no matter how many they are...Is a YES and an Amen thru Jesus Christ, (2 Corinthians 1:20)! Thank you Lord Jesus Christ -Amen!

    "Therefore, If anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the NEW is here!"

    2 Corinthians 5:17 

    •  A NEW year means "about to begin"...  and the definition of "creation" is 1 : the act of creating; ... 2 : the act of making, inventing, or producing: such as. a : the act of investing with a NEW... (www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/creation).
    •  Therefore, as we ALL launch into a NEW beginning for 2019 why not invest ourselves into living the doctrine of Jesus Christ towards something that's positive and productive with outcomes of awesome rewards!?! 
    • Bring into order the 'Righteousness of God' which is thru Jesus Christ and his teachings which will produce a healthy NEW creation God has in store of each us. As it is written..."God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God." (2 Corinthians 5:21).
    •  God himself provides an concept that we ALL can take on for sin not be our downfall, God states we are "Repent and Turn away from ALL offenses..." that caused any destruction in our lives. So utilizing God's instruction and applying the teaching of Jesus Christ is an act of investing into the "NEW" creation for ourselves allowing God to do that NEW heart and the NEW spirit he promises (Ezekiel 18:30-31). 
    • So lets ALL take on the concept of a NEW creation in Jesus Christ for 2019. Always remember God gave his ONLY begotten son for the entire WORLD (everyone) and therefore we are ALL a crown of splendor and a royal diadem in the Lord God's hand. For with the Holy eternal God on our side who dare be against us! (John 3:16, Isaiah 62:3 and Romans 8:31).
    • For All the promises, no matter how many they are...Is a YES and an Amen thru Jesus Christ, (2 Corinthians 1:20)! Thank you Lord Jesus Christ -Amen!
