Numbers 21:4-5
4 Then they set out from Mount Hor by the way of the [branch of the] Red Sea [called the Gulf of Aqabah], to go around the land of Edom; and the people became impatient, because [of the challenges] of the journey. 5 So the people spoke against God and against Moses, “Why have you brought us out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? For there is no bread, nor is there any water, and we loathe this miserable food.”

The Old Testament is full of these examples.
Dear Christian Friends,

I think those in the USA need to reflect a little on where we have come from and gone astray. Having been to Latin America and Tanzania, I can tell you that I have been to poorer parts of this world. I can tell you that I have met Christians more on fire and appreciative of God than in my home area. While the American churches can be proud that they have spread Christianity worldwide and in these poorer countries, what have we done at home?

The Old Testament is full of examples. Tight to God, and blessed. Not tight to God and troubled. In our early history, here in the USA, we were tight to God and even though historians are eliminating this from history, God protected us, even in battle. There are all sorts of books on it, but not many readers. Today a politician or two may say "God Bless America" but our fruits are far from them. We have taken on all sorts of sin. I would say that we are unappreciative. 

Here we see the Jews in exile, because they were away from God. They needed food. God miraculously provided. Here they are complaining about the food! Are we getting like that. Can we be on fire again for God? Is it not time to speak up and change our thankless attitudes? I think so.

If we live, we live for the Lord, and if we die, we die for the Lord. So then, whether we live or die, we are the Lord’s.
Daniel 3:16-18

Amplified Bible

16 Shadrach, Meshach, and Abed-nego answered the king, “O Nebuchadnezzar, we do not need to answer you on this point. 17 If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to rescue us from the furnace of blazing fire, and He will rescue us from your hand, O king. 18 But even if He does not, let it be known to you, O king, that we are not going to serve your gods or worship the golden image that you have set up!”

How good is your faith / surrender?
Dear Christian Friends,

Once again Christians have a test and many are taking it to their own thoughts. For me, whether I get it or not, my God is omnipotent enough to protect me either way. It is also another act of love for your fellow human beings like the wearing of a mask is. We do not want them to get sick. 

Let us understand that love is the greatest commandment. (Luke 10:25-28) Everything comes off of that foundation. IF you do not understand that, you do not understand the very Words of Jesus and have not been taught right about your alleged Christianity. 

The two Scriptures above deal with moments of great faith and this vaccine or not is your test in today's world. I pray that you will trust in God instead of yourself either way.

Wow!!  Another Awesome and powerful message today.  Thanks for sharing your heart today.

I know you probably read this before but your message reminded me to share it with you

The Dash Poem (By Linda Ellis)

I read of a man who stood to speak
At the funeral of a friend
He referred to the dates on the tombstone
From the the end

He noted that first came the date of birth
And spoke the following date with tears,
But he said what mattered most of all
Was the dash between those years

For that dash represents all the time
That they spent alive on earth.
And now only those who loved them
Know what that little line is worth

For it matters not, how much we own,
The cars...the house...the cash.
What matters is how we live and love
And how we spend our dash.

So, think about this long and hard.
Are there things you'd like to change?
For you never know how much time is left
That can still be rearranged.

If we could just slow down enough
To consider what's true and real
And always try to understand
The way other people feel.

And be less quick to anger
And show appreciation more
And love the people in our lives
Like we've never loved before.

If we treat each other with respect
And more often wear a smile,
Remembering this special dash
Might only last a little while

So, when your eulogy is being read
With your life's actions to rehash...
Would you be proud of the things they say
About how you spent YOUR dash?

Have a safe and blessed day.

Love you Brother!

 1 Timothy 3:7

Amplified Bible

7 And he must have a good reputation and be well thought of by those outside the church, so that he will not be discredited and fall into the devil’s trap.

What will people say at your funeral?
Dear Christian Friends,

With the passing of Rush Limbaugh, I was reminded of "What will our legacy be?" Will people honor us for all that we did for Christ? Will there be honors from people that we helped? Will there be many nice things said?

God tells us that we should want to aspire to be an elder or a deacon. In today's Scripture, even the world should have good things to say about us. 

Now, in today's world, I cannot tell you that they will. In fact for Rush Limbaugh, it depended on the source. BUT as a Christian we must be encouraging to others. To build character in those still living.In those listening to us. In those examining our lives and elsewhere. So, it must be true what people say about you. Let us make our goal to be doing good as much as we can in this life so people will be able to testify to our Christian example. 

Grace and peace,
Amen brother Bob Koinonia is what we all need as humans

Subject: 2/14 "NO BODY KNOWS ME WELL"

Insight Ministries Inc. 

?They were continually and faithfully devoting themselves to the instruction of the apostles, and to fellowship, to eating meals together and to prayers.

Is there anyone near you that could say this?
Dear Christian Friends,

In America a recent survey stated that 40% of the people responded in this way: "NO BODY KNOWS ME WELL". God forbid if any of these people were Christian church people! Fellowship is much deeper than just a meal together.

What is the real meaning of fellowship?
1 : companionship, company looking for the fellowship of friendly people. 2a : community of interest, activity, feeling, or experience their fellowship in crime— A. J. Ayer. b : the state of being a fellow or associate. 3 : a company of equals or friends : association a youth fellowship.

IF your church does not make you feel this way, leave it, change it, but do not put up with it. Every Christian should feel a part of being in fellowship with each other. Some will, naturally love and be loved more. This fulfills the great commandment even more.

EVEN MORE SO, We are to be in communion with each other. That should be even deeper. May we strive for these goals and practice them. Why do you think the devil likes this virus so much? He is able to break down the tenants of Christianity for those who are weak. Let us not be. In Jesus Holy Name, AMEN!

While this may sound like a riddle, it is not.
Dear Christian Friends,

God talks much about being mature or perfect, reaching perfection, setting it up as our goal. BUT WHEN IS IT?

It is the time we reach heaven. That is when we die here. On earth, God gives us only glimpses here. Little bits and pieces there. Even the descriptions of heaven do not do it justice. When we get there the whole feeling will overwhelm us. 

But still our goal is to mature as much as we can in our day, before that day. AMEN?

He created them male and female, and blessed them and named them Mankind at the time they were created.
God's design works, perfectly. Any thing else, no!
Dear Friends,

Man has a tendency to sin. In today's world we have been told a lot of lies by the evil one on the design of men and women. When some of us were young, we were taught some basic differences and it was the truth. Today however these truths have been hidden by various groups with their own motivations. I present some of this here. A founding principle is this, not only are our bodies different, BUT Our brains are different.

  1. Females take in more information on the emotional side. The matured female brain also takes in more information from the surroundings. This gives them an advantage to protect the children and the family.
  2. Males on the other hand are more focused.They take in information on the analytical side. They can steer the ship with their focus, but not see the small craft by their waves who they are affecting.
  3. When they work together complimenting each other, in balance, it is a perfect set up, in particular for the family. God based our relationships on the family, calling Himself Father, and Christ His Son.
  4. When, in marriage, the wife, allows her husband to lead by submitting to him (as in Christ) the family is best protected. This is God's design for this partnership. Because of her ability to absorb the surroundings, she can get her man to work best for her and the family. Because, a Christian man knows she can be emotional, in her submission she will also listen to him when she goes off the rails.
  5. Warnings to both: The male brain takes until the age of 25 to fully mature and become that analytical machine that we all need. The female brain matures more around the age of 18, but is less mature than the fully matured male brain. This is a unique balance created by God and works very well when in coordination with His Word and each other. Just think of how this can work to our benefits in courting and dating?

Now, these are general statements and do hold true. There are exceptions and drifting of character. However the biggest wacks to God's system here is people who are hurt and bear their hurts through the rest of their lives instead of giving them to Jesus for healing. There first words are usually "How can I do this part of marriage if (my spouse)..." Already their eyes are off of God because of something that happened to them earlier in life. They are into protecting themselves first instead of giving it to, and letting God do it.

Now, that you know these things, you can work on them and with God as truth.

Revelation 22:18-20

Amplified Bible

18 I testify and warn everyone who hears the words of the prophecy of this book [its predictions, consolations, and admonitions]: if anyone adds [anything] to them, God will add to him the plagues (afflictions, calamities) which are written in this book; 19 and if anyone takes away from or distorts the words of the book of this prophecy, God will take away [from that one] his share from the tree of life and from the holy city (new Jerusalem), which are written in this book.
20 He who testifies and affirms these things says, “Yes, I am coming quickly.” Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.

Wonder why God may not be working so good around?
Dear Friends,

Never, never get caught up on ANY particular version of the Bible. But, rather compare reliable ones. As an example some people will ONLY use the KJV. Some pastor told them to and his reason is that "it was the first Bible", he says. Well, THAT is not true. It is NOT the first Bible. It is also NOT the first Bible translated into English although it can be said that it is "ONE of the first" to be translated as such.

Further let us understand that English is NOT the original language of Scripture. Hebrew is of the Old Testament and Greek of the New Testament. Also understand that Bibles are translated to be readable. However, just as we, in America, were throwing Bibles out of schools, legalizing abortion, promoting an improper separation of Church and State, God was allowing a version of the Bible to be translated from the original languages into English.

So, the words lost or added in translation, would be no more. And you, the common man without a Hebrew or Greek degree, can get this Bible instead.. It is NOT for reading, but rather study. In other words, common people, like me, can glean from the original languages the full meaning intended by those languages. If you do not, you are definitely missing an addition or subtraction of God's Word.

PS: The King James version? Is best because it was made entirely by Born Again Christians not because it was first etc. Does it have errors/ Yes, all of them do because "All have sinned", even those forgiven. Even the Pope. Even the smartest Christian that you know.

In short no one has ever claimed that the Holy Spirit cannot lead you in this. So, I will not start.

1/6 SIN gets closer.
Insight Ministries Inc. 
For I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my flesh [my human nature, my worldliness—my sinful capacity]. For the willingness [to do good] is present in me, but the doing of good is not.

THIS sinful nature of us is easier to do today more than ever.
Dear Friends,

Sin is knocking at your door. In today's world, more than ever. In this alleged "information age" sin is just a click away, and personal relationships which would help prevent it are more distant than ever. Jesus came for a personal relationship with us and us with each other. There is no other way. We are needed to share, check, and encourage each other. No man is an island.

First the information age, then social media, now a virus have all attacked and the weaknesses in us have given in to it. We must resist, because the evil one has succeeded in making sin, all the closer and all the easier by destroying personal relationships.

Yesterday we saw what some call riots in Washington DC. However, do not trust that as they ignored real riots in major cities and called them "peaceful demonstrations". You see how evil wants to control what is said. But this is a result, not as they blame the people, but the distance that the people who are supposed to be personal with us, as our servants, as our representatives, have failed to do so. They have become the politically elite who are paid more so and have the attitude of rising above us, instead of the personal attitude of a servant, who wants to know more about us.

Let each of us review our personal relationships and the reinforcements we need to follow Christ.

Let it not be us.
Dear Friends,

When 'return to sender' comes up, it reminds me of the Elvis Presley song. However we can be like that with God. We say "no thanks, I don't want it". Instead we need to always be looking for every way that God is trying to reach us. When we were converted, our attitude should change from having 'coincident's in our lives to looking at each opportunity as a 'God incident'. Here is a preachers story on that:

One Christian died in a flood and at the Pearly Gates he said to St. Peter "I thought surely God would help me. You see as his house flooded many things happened. St. Peter said to him, "When God sent the messengers to evacuate, why did you not leave?" "And when the guy with the boat came, why didn't you get in?" "Then when the helicopter came to pluck you off the roof, why did you wave them off?" The Christian said "I was still looking for God."

The moral is that it is not us that determines how God works. He will do what He does and we should do what we should do, LOOK FOR HIM WORKING.

Some of you will say that this cannot happen. One more story. This one is true, from me. God sends people my way to minister to. i am sure He does to you too. This woman befriended me on Facebook. I told her from the beginning, it was a God incident and we would minister to each other. She was great at encouraging me. However, every now and then despite her many moments in the light, she had dark moments. I taught her how to ask Jesus in and pray the demons out of her. It worked! But only for a while. Then the dark moments would come back. She finally unfriended me as I tried to help her and explain. Come to find out others had also tried to help her and she rejected them.

So, more than a preachers story, this can be very serious, about your soul. Again I say LOOK FOR GOD WORKING. Make this the year you try extra hard and push on every open door! EVERY DAY IS THE TIME!

Dear Friends,
Throughout the Christian Age this was true, but more so at the ending stages. And our politicians are sadly a great example. Over paid, lost the servants attitude and no respect for their elders. Even promoting policies of euthanasia for the elderly via the virus. They have created a politically elite class and lies all to themselves.
• God says it is a sin.
• God predicted it would get worse.
• One of the reasons so many preachers believe that we are closing in on the ending.

My message is to be humble and self giving. DO NOT BE ONE OF THEM. Hang on there and God WILL multiply your goodness back to you.

Thank you Bob. You truly have the heart of an evangelist. Lord keep our eyes open so that we can not only see what's going on but to understand and help us not only hear people talking but to listen to what they are saying in order that we can share some no Good News with them. If there was ever a time to help the lost find the saviour need and not the one they wanted it is now. elections come and go, Stocks go up and down and civil unrest peaks and wanes. Jesus is the Savoor that can bring real peace between natural man and his creator so that he can see the word through his eyes and learn to walk down a righteous path.
Bob, What you talked about - the need for a saviour - was mentioned by one of my friends in a recent tele-conference.  He mentioned that he noticed that salvation is being preached more along with the customary story of Jesus' birth this year. I'm not sure that is the case.  It's just that we may notice it more because of our current challenges which have really exposed the darkness that exists in many hearts. No wonder, If there were ever a time to hear the story of Christ's death and resurrection it is certainly now. Thanks for your timely message.

Keep up the good work brother and hope that you are healing well.

So they went in a hurry and found their way to Mary and Joseph, and the Baby as He lay in the manger. And when they had seen this, they made known what had been told them about this Child, and all who heard it were astounded and wondered at what the shepherds told them. But Mary treasured all these things, giving careful thought to them and pondering them in her heart. The shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all that they had heard and seen, just as it had been told them.

The Best Time of the Year
Dear Friends,
We have the opportunity to best serve God this season by promoting Jesus and His birth. There is no other time, not even Easter when people expect it. As I wish you a MERRY CHRISTMAS, my wish is also that you will take the opportunity to talk about Jesus. Your opportunity lasts just a few days, then it is all about New Years. For the sake of Christ, make the best of this opportunity. Also know that Michael Grimm and I are praying for all that will read this message and more. In Jesus Holy name. AMEN.
