Dear Loved Ones,
Happy New Year! As we go into 22 let's agree to run the race that is set before us with endurance looking unto Jesus the Author and Finisher of our faith who being our example finished the work by laying down his life that we might have life in 22.
Philippians 2:2-3 says ...Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit ... but in lowliness of mind consider others more important than ourselves. Let's agree to be the light of the world and carry the torch of humility and practice favoring the other person when making decisions that our light will then shine brightly for our Savior's glory.
Let's agree to forget those things which are behind and reach forward to the things which are ahead pressing toward the goal of the upward call of Jesus. There is great peace in moving on in life ... as Jesus said ... I came to give you life!
Let's agree to abide and stay on track in 22. We know the formula ... be transformed by the renewing of your mind daily by reading and studying God's word, praying fervently for one another needs, loving your neighbor, and always putting the Lord first in every decision. If you abide in Me and my words abide in you ... ask what you will and it shall be done for you.
Help us carry the torch by doing one more thing please ... giving to what gives to you and others ... 91.5 Kingdom FM! We need your financial help now with annual music royalty fees.
Start 22 by giving a gift and enjoy His peace!
With Sincere Appreciation ... Art Ramos
Late December Newsletter
Late December 2021
Unto us a Child is born, and the government will be upon His shoulder. His name will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace, and of the increase of His government there will be no end ... JESUS!
Our government increases and things get worse but not in Heaven. It starts here with being in 'one accord" ... getting in agreement with God's will first and then watching Him work! If two agree they can put ten thousand to flight! Even the Tower of Babel would have succeeded because they agreed, and the Lord had to confuse their speech because they were making serious progress. Let's agree you and I keep God's word going out over the airwaves. How can two walk together unless they agree? Keeping year-end gifts and donation dollars in our community where they should be is VITAL to ministries like Kingdom FM. Now is the time to make a year-end tax-deductable gift and be transformed by the renewing of your mind every day on 91.5 Kingdom FM.
No other radio station in SWFL can make the claim of doing teaching in the morning drive but Kingdom FM! The Lord has honored that 18 years strong so let's close out the year together being in "one accord" finishing strong for HIM! He who keeps the fig tree will eat of its fruit and he who waits on his Master will be honored. Take the challenge and give your best tax-deductible year-end gift now and watch the Lord transform your life and let's contend for the faith together.
With Sincere Appreciation
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year 2022,
Art Ramos and the Kingdom FM Staff.
Dear Fellow Believers,
Thank you to all who gave at our fall sharathon...the Lord is good! I had a chance to talk with several of you and what a joy it is to share love in a common bond of accomplishing a goal.
This radio ministry is here because of all of us together paying it forward by doing our part to keep... 'hope alive'...in our community.
Psalm 101:6 says "My eyes shall be on the faithful of the land that they may dwell with Me. He who walks in a blameless way, he shall serve Me.
I know that's what you and I want is to be blameless before our loving Savior Jesus and to be used by him. I pray all the teaching programs that you listen to strengthen your walk and make you more than a conqueror because as we continue to see our nation headed towards more depravity, we have to be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might! Life can be good even when it doesn't seem that way when we make the right decision because we have a secret weapon that the world does not have...it's called love!
Stay in the word and let’s honor our King ... King Jesus this Christmas telling others of His great love and giving to what pleases Him. His word going out over the airwaves.
Art Ramos and Staff
Sharathon starts Monday November 15th!
Dear Loved Ones,
Proverbs 3:5-6 says ...Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not to your own understanding but in all your ways acknowledge Him and He will direct your paths.
In the times we now live we need to reflect on God's promises more and more especially when we cannot see our way through.
His promise to the disciples when crossing the Sea of Galilee that stormy night was "lets go to the other side" and He was in the boat with them. Just like then Jesus is in the boat with us now promising whatever the situation in our life that He will get us to "the other side" of our own personal situation.
Friends...if you are reading this you know the value of 91.5 Kingdom FM and the peace and guidance it brings to you daily. Psalm 19 promises a great reward in keeping His word.
Sharathon starts Monday November 15 and we need your financial support to help us keep hope alive. The world is doing its best to steal our hope but we win in the end if we persevere. Please go online or send in a check now to help us get started...we need your support as we are listener supported and please pray for us that we will receive more than enough to do greater things in our city!
With Sincere Appreciation,
Art Ramos Pres/CEO
Dear Loved Ones,
Ephesians 6:10 says ... Finally my brethren be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might ... put on the whole armor of God that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. Friends...how peace and safety have departed our country in the last 10 months. The times have changed ... it's a different season ... evil is being called good and good is being called evil. Do not fear! Stand strong in your heart ... trust in Jesus ... our Savior.
This is the time to have your secret weapon ready ... the Bible! The true word of life.... the instruction and guidance we need at this time in our world. Therefore, take up the whole armor of God that you may be able to withstand in the evil day and having done all to stand ... stand therefore having your waist girded with the truth along with your breastplate of righteousness and keeping your mind guarded (helmet of salvation) then positioning yourself always with confidence and your sword of the spirit which is the bible itself.
This is a time to love those who need to know what we know ... more and more people will be looking at us and to us for direction ... be ready to give an answer for the hope that lies within you with meekness.
Kingdom FM 91.5 remains a lighthouse to turn to in times of confusion. The secular media offers depressing news...we bring the "good news" of the "Bible" daily ... won't you please help us keep going with your financial support? We need your help … please go online or mail in a check of support today.With Sincere Appreciation,
Art Ramos ~ President/CEO
Dear Loved Ones,
As we approach the Labor Day weekend let us be reminded what a great nation the United States of America is and how with godly principles and love and a great work ethic one nation can become the example to all. The thing that made America great is we offer opportunity to everyone to become better...it's up to the individual to go for it. Free money robs you of your dignity and takes away one's desire to better themselves and weakens the country.
A country that can give you everything you want.....is a country that can take away everything you have."
Salvation is a free gift but from there it's up to you what kind of godly life you want to live here and in eternity....here's the proof. 2 Peter 1:10 says.....Therefore brethren be even more diligent to make your call and election sure, for if you do these things you will never stumble for so and entrance will be supplied to you abundantly into the everlasting Kingdom of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
The world say "take" ......God says...."give"......sow for yourselves seeds of righteousness and reap steadfast love. Galatians 6:8 puts it like this.... For he who sows to his flesh will reap corruption but he who sows to the Spirit will reap everlasting life.
Kingdom FM 91.5 is a constant work in progress with a 24 hour a day message of exhortation to become better...please help us to keep it going strong with your gift of support this month.
Faithfully Serving Our Community and the World,
Dear Loved Ones,
As we continue to press toward the goal of the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus ... let us then continue to run the race with all diligence. What is the race? Pressing through these difficult times with joy and peace in our hearts mixed with faith and empathy knowing our Father in Heaven is in total control.
He says, "Listen for I will speak of excellent things and from the opening of My mouth will come right things." The world shouts fear and division but the Lord says be prepared for what may come with strength of spirit. I, wisdom, dwell with prudence and find out knowledge and discretion. Blessed is the man who listens to Me, watching daily at My gates ... waiting at the posts of My doors.
Quiet time is essential now more than ever to hear what the Holy Spirit is saying ... Jesus said ... However, when He the Spirit has come He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak of His own authority but whatever He hears He will speak and He will tell you things to come. This is our assurance and eternal hope.
Meditate on His words, listen carefully for His secure guidance and find someone to mentor and pass it on. Stay connected to us 91.5 Kingdom FM as the Spirit always speaks through ministry and we'll do our best to bring it forth every day!
Your financial support is vital during these summer months, please go online or give by check to help sustain the ministry and let’s stay strong together in one accord.

Dear Faithful Ones,
As we reach the halfway mark on our calendar let us reach even harder for the truth in our lives and for our great country. Righteousness exalts a nation!
The 4th of July is coming this week and there is no better day every year to remind ourselves how much freedom God blessed our country with. Though they're trying to take it away slowly but surely, just remember that no weapon formed against you shall prosper. This of course is all predicated on our prayers and how we live our life as Christians. See, if the Lord is going to save America it is not because of our nations good works but because of His saints crying out for mercy and forgiveness just like Daniel did and you know his prayers were answered.
In Mark 10:46 blind Bartimaeus cries out “ Lord have mercy on me”. As Jesus was passing by He heard the one who cried out the loudest! Are you crying out to Him for America?
It says that many warned him to be quiet. Be quiet for what ? Defending our rights? Letting evil prevail? Asking for help? Having another yoke of financial bondage placed on our necks ? Have no fear! These are the things that only prayer to a “Living God” can change. It says that Jesus “hearing the cry” stopped. Why? He heard the “cry” of a man in need and He being God wanted to meet the need that only He could!! Jesus then said the most beautiful words that any of us would want to hear.“What do you want Me to do for you? Notice that these precious words came after Bartimaeus continually cried out. As in cried out many many times with fervency.
We have to let the Lord know we are serious about saving America otherwise it’s just wishing and hoping.
Loved Ones, we hold the “key” to unlocking the grip of unrighteousness on our nation.Today as you read this letter pray with me for our United States of America, one nation under God for which it stands!
If we cry out loud and long enough He will hear us and do what Jeremiah 33: 6 says: “See, I will bring it (America) health and healing... I will heal them and reveal to them the abundance of peace and truth”.
Let’s stay joined together sending out the spirit of truth strongly over the airwaves thru Kingdom FM today. Summer is here and we need each other even more...your financial support is vital and very much appreciated.
Together with liberty and justice for all.
Dear Loved Ones,
Will a man wrestle with God? Jacob did. He was going back to his homeland to reconcile with his brother Esau like God had told him to do after 20 yrs of serving Laban. Ever have to serve Laban? Today he might be called by a another name like.... "government control" "debt" "fear" 'worry" 'social pressure" "low self esteem" high taxes" and so on. Jacob in Genesis 32 was given the chance to go back to Canaan and make things right with Esau who Jacob had done wrong. The Lord loves those who go back and fix things they have messed up.
Now Jacob on his way, was left alone. Left alone to think and pray. He knew he was the son of Abraham and Isaac and that God had a big plan for his life so he prayed for strength to be able with confidence to meet his brother in peace. A Man showed up in that time of contemplation and began to wrestle with Jacob. That Man was none other than Jesus Christ Himself the "Angel of the Lord".
Are you believing the Lord has a big plan for your life and will show up for you too? If so you would have believed that for some time now and because it has not come to pass you probably want some answers from God. Can you handle some time alone and wrestle with the Angel of the Lord? It is a requirement of the Father. Obviously there are some rules to qualify for wrestling with the Angel, pre-wrestle rules. Some of those rules are "did you obey Me before we even got to this point? Have you stuck it out with praise without complaining while nothing happened? Have you trusted, walked in the spirit, and let the peace of God reign in your heart while you patiently waited for the expectation of being blessed and reaching your destiny while one delay after another comes your way? Ok well..has He said and will He not do...or has He spoken it and will He not make it good ? Numbers 23:19. If so then like Jacob you qualify to receive the blessing too!
The Lord wants to know if you will wrestle with Him for that blessing. He loves those who will not quit but go thru the fire and though we all have failed at some time in our life He is looking for those who will now decide to be strong and see it thru .
Jacob fought the good fight of faith and the bible says that after they both were tired after wrestling all night that Jacob prevailed and "held on to the Angel". Are you at the point that you are holding on to Jesus with all you have? I hope so because that is how I feel. The story goes on to say that He dislocated his hip so Jacob would never forget this wrestling match and because he was so determined to win that the Angel said OK and I am giving you a new name also, Israel. So the Angel blessed him and went on. The story gets better in Genesis 33 with the peace of reconciliation.
The Lord always has a good ending if you do it His way!
Friends, it is the Father's good pleasure to give you the Kingdom! He wants you to have all He has planned for you. Keep doing the pre-wrestle little things every day and one day you will be called to wrestle, and when that time comes know that your BIG blessing will come right after that. Let's keep supporting his word going out over the airwaves and expect that He will do a good work in you!
Dear Faithful Ones,
The Lord is good and He has risen! Amen! As we remembered the sufferings of Jesus from several days ago and His resurection... let us give thanks to Him for His unmeasureable love that He showed willingly sacrificing himself and giving us a future hope that we too shall be resurrected one day in a new body to be with Him forever and ever. That my friends is our Blessed Assurance.
While we wait and occupy til that Day let us be inspired as Jesus commanded to tell others of His lovingkindness to all mankind that whoever would believe in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. What did Jesus say? You didn’t chose me but I choose you and appointed you that you should go and bare fruit and that your fruit should remain………..that’s what we are called to do until His return and it's summed up like this....love God and love people.
Thank you to all who give regularly....we are so thankful that you understand the value of what 91.5 Kingdom FM is. A tree baring fruit, and all of us together collectively take care of this fruit tree. Make no mistake Kingdom FM’s roots go down deep by the River and it’s leaf is always green only because all of us maintain this wonderful gift that the Lord gave to us....SWFL.
Let’s keep it going strong so others in our community and around the world can come and “taste and see that the Lord is good". Please send in your check of support today or give online today and let the world know us by our fruit!
With sincere appreciation,
God says in the word....Lord, who may abide in your tabernacle? Who may dwell in your holy hill? He who walks uprightly and works righteousness and speaks the truth in his heart......he who does these things shall never be moved.
No matter what we see around us let us remember that the Lord is always in control...he neither slumbers nor sleeps and is always working for our good to bring about some type of change for good in our lives. Now is time for us to pray and seek the Lord for our nation and to use this opportunity to tell others who are caught up in what the world is now offering that there is a life after this one and that showing genuine love is really the only way to win your family and friends to Jesus.
Kingdom FM has been and will continue to be an anchor for this purpose 24 hours a day teaching the word and always encouraging everyone that love conquers all. Look at life today like the prophet Joel did when he said "...new pastures are springing up and the fruit tree bears its fruit..the times were similar then but he heard from God and pronounced a blessing.. can you receive it now? The answer is YES and Amen.
Please help us to keep the word going strong as we are listener supported and depend on your tax deductable financial gifts to undergird this local ministry....your financial support is very important and every dollar is spent wisely.
With Sincere Thanks,
Art Ramos Pres/CEO
Dear Brothers and Sisters,
We are in a battle today ... a battle for control of your mind. Only by the Holy Spirit in you who is powerful enough to convince and steer us toward correct thinking; can we endure all that will be coming at us in these last days. Let us encourage one another to be strong and fearless and remember to go in your prayer closet daily with fervent prayer because life is always about moving forward with the Lord, then when trials come you are ready to stand! You have heard it said that "prayer changes things" ... yes and sometimes God wants to change our hearts first.
The Lord says, "I am your Father, I know what is best, let Me do My work ... My timing is perfect". James 1 says... Count it all joy my brethren when you "fall" into various trials knowing that the testing of your faith develops patience ... but "let" patience have its perfect work that you may be whole and complete lacking nothing. You may be in a situation in your life where you know it's the Lord's time to act on your behalf ... if so wait for Him, meet Him with prayer and praise and adoration, love people and be kind then knowing you have done all you can do to stand ... then stand firm on the word being still and receive the peace that passes all understanding and see the salvation of the Lord! Jesus said "your Heavenly Father knows you need these things"... He acts on behalf of the one willing to wait for Him.
Let's show God we believe and we're willing to pray and trust Him by keeping His "Word" going out over the airwaves and helping others hear the message of hope. Together let's keep Kingdom FM going strong!
Dear Loved Ones,
Now more than ever we need to put on the whole armor of God and be dependent on Jesus ... the author and finisher of our faith. Be strong in the Lord and in the power of His might, (confident) stand therefore having girded your waist with truth, (knowledge) putting on the breastplate of righteousness,(a pure heart) shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace, (ready to serve) taking up the shield of faith,( raising your defense) taking the helmet of salvation, (guard your mind) and the sword of the spirit which is the word of God, ( be bold and fearless) praying always with all supplication ( begging humbly) with perseverance. Now is the time to sharpen your skills and be ready to give an answer to your neighbor for the hope that lies within you with all meekness and gentleness. We can help … Listen, Learn, Live ... Love.
Thessalonians talks about a great falling away before the day of our Lord. Are we beginning to see that falling away now that church services are being limited and the social pressure that will be brought on society? 1 Peter 1.10 says ... Therefore brethren be even more diligent to make your call and election sure, for if you do these things you will never stumble. What things? Adding to your faith...virtue, knowledge, self control, perseverance, godliness, brotherly kindness, love.
Rest assured 91.5 Kingdom FM will be here...boldly and steadfastly and immovably living out 2 Timothy 1:7... For God has not given us a spirit of fear but of power and of love and a sound mind. Please help me to keep it going!
