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!
