Awesome R. T. Kendall forgiving message and response at ALCC today! | My personal blog | Watch R. T. live online speak at the Holy Spirit Conference in Anchorage 1/31 – 2/3!

UPDATED after hearing R. T.’s message, tonight.
.

This is a follow-up of: Alaska: R. T. Kendall, author of “Total Forgiveness” (a forgive-others-&-be-free book) will be speaking at Abbott Loop on Sunday

Wow! The R. T. Kendall’s message on forgiving couldn’t have been better at Abbott Loop this morning — seriously! I have never heard anyone ever really speak of how to totally forgive; though, I’ve been researching this for two decades.

R. T. did it in about 45 minutes, using the Joseph example as a back-drop. And the people responded virtually en masse! Art Mathias had laid the foundation, and R. T. Kendall is bringing us toward home plate. We’re not there yet, though.

I’m so excited — floored — dumfounded! We now have the fruitful garden from which the never-ending revival will happen big-time!!! A revival that will simply be real Christianity flourishing in our midst for ever. The never-ending revival!!! I see it!

I took a bunch of pics during the message that I hope to post soon either here, or at my personal blog, or both. I haven’t decided where to post things yet. I do have a personal category here at ONEcanhappen, and my personal blog is so filled with Cargo’s Last Stand and other photos. I guess I’ll just play it all by ear, post by post. I don’t want to unnecessarily alienate people who are visiting to look at photos at JeffFenske.wordpress.com by putting a lot of spiritual stuff on there. But on the other hand, the spiritual stuff that is happening now is so cool (and the world is getting so dark) that I think less and less people will be offended.

JeffFenske.wordpress.com isn’t prominently linked from ToBeFree or ONEcanhappen, because I’ve been out of touch with my webMASTER for quite a while now. He taught me a lot, but he did the linked icons on the right side of the site. I can’t do what he can do.

Anyway, the last thing I wanted to mention here is that I just found out today that R. T. Kendall is up here for a conference at Muldoon Community Assembly of God church, here in Anchorage. It looks like he’ll be speaking all four days, starting in a few minutes. Here is the schedule: http://blog.mcaonline.org/?p=3026. And this is where the conference can be watched online (but apparently only as a live stream): http://www.voicetothevillage.net/Webcast/VttV_Webcast.html.

Cheers!

UPDATE:

I just watched R. T. speak his message, tonight, online.

The sound was pretty poor, but I could make out most of the words by cranking up my amp.

It looks like they’ve figured it out now.

Also, there’s no need to login. That’s just for the chat room.

R. T. spoke the same message tonight that he spoke at Abbott Loop this morning — to my delight! And he added one aspect that I didn’t catch this morning: that it’s the Holy Spirit’s job to convict those who’ve hurt us. It’s not ours. We can just totally let it go, trusting God to do His job — not taking on His job.

The seven points he makes are incredible. I’ll probably be posting more on this teaching in the near future.

I would love to ask R. T. how he came up with these seven points. He mentioned a few personal examples in these messages, but it would be wonderful to hear how he has put together what I have seen no one else achieve.

Praise God!!!!!!! I’ve been so hungry to find forgiving teaching that actually totally works….

Scriptures compiled
and highlighted by Jeff Fenske

This is a simple, though I think a very profound study — perhaps even sobering.

It’s simple because it’s simply straight-forward sections of scripture that aren’t surgically micro-edited to bias the results. So far, I’ve chosen not to even comment other than by how I highlighted the texts.

And I think it’s profound because these scriptures reveal a much different message than what is the mainstream teaching of our day. Imagine the profound result of what would happen if what the Bible so clearly says would instead be the mainstream teaching in America.

What would happen if the Bible would be simply accepted for what it simply says?

May we always greatly desire to line up with the word of God no matter what.

[Technical notes:

I most always use the World English Bible translation (WEB), because it’s intentionally not copyrighted (so we can use it freely, for free). It’s also usually very accurate, and it’s based on the reliable Textus Receptus text (as are the KJV and NKJV).

Here, the translators took the liberty to translate sons into the gender-free title, children. From a strict literal perspective it would seem that it would be best that a translation not do this unless it claims to be a paraphrase. In seminary, this was considered taboo. But I suppose it depends upon how gender-free the term sons was meant to be originally. Clearly, sons is meant to include women as much as it does men, so I’m going quote the WEB as is.

Also, I’m highlighting in black and in blue. All links on my sites are in red; though, in my writings, I also often emphasize the word ‘heart‘ in red.]

If you think of other scriptures that should be displayed here, please let me know.

God bless!

Jesus in Matthew 5

9 Blessed are the peacemakers, for they shall be called children of God.

43 “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor, and hate your enemy.’ 44 But I tell you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who mistreat you and persecute you, 45 that you may be children of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the just and the unjust. 46 For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Don’t even the tax collectors do the same? 47 If you only greet your friends, what more do you do than others? Don’t even the tax collectors do the same? 48 Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your Father in heaven is perfect.

Jesus in John 10

1 “Most certainly, I tell you, one who doesn’t enter by the door into the sheep fold, but climbs up some other way, the same is a thief and a robber. 2 But one who enters in by the door is the shepherd of the sheep. 3 The gatekeeper opens the gate for him, and the sheep listen to his voice. He calls his own sheep by name, and leads them out. 4 Whenever he brings out his own sheep, he goes before them, and the sheep follow him, for they know his voice. 5 They will by no means follow a stranger, but will flee from him; for they don’t know the voice of strangers.” 6 Jesus spoke this parable to them, but they didn’t understand what he was telling them.

7 Jesus therefore said to them again, “Most certainly, I tell you, I am the sheep’s door. 8 All who came before me are thieves and robbers, but the sheep didn’t listen to them. 9 I am the door. If anyone enters in by me, he will be saved, and will go in and go out, and will find pasture. 10 The thief only comes to steal, kill, and destroy. I came that they may have life, and may have it abundantly.

11 I am the good shepherd. The good shepherd lays down his life for the sheep. 12 He who is a hired hand, and not a shepherd, who doesn’t own the sheep, sees the wolf coming, leaves the sheep, and flees. The wolf snatches the sheep, and scatters them. 13 The hired hand flees because he is a hired hand, and doesn’t care for the sheep. 14 I am the good shepherd. I know my own, and I’m known by my own; 15 even as the Father knows me, and I know the Father. I lay down my life for the sheep. 16 I have other sheep, which are not of this fold. I must bring them also, and they will hear my voice. They will become one flock with one shepherd.

Romans 8

1 There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who don’t walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit. 2 For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus made me free from the law of sin and of death. 3 For what the law couldn’t do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God did, sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh and for sin, he condemned sin in the flesh; that the ordinance of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. …

13 For if you live after the flesh, you must die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. 14 For as many as are led by the Spirit of God, these are children of God. 15 For you didn’t receive the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you received the Spirit of adoption, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!” 16 The Spirit himself testifies with our spirit that we are children of God; 17 and if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint heirs with Christ; if indeed we suffer with him, that we may also be glorified with him.

18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which will be revealed toward us. 19 For the creation waits with eager expectation for the children of God to be revealed.

Gal. 5

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faith, 23 gentleness, and self-control. Against such things there is no law. 24 Those who belong to Christ [They that are Christ’s – KJV] have crucified the flesh with its passions and lusts.

Abbott Loop podcast clarification

Two days ago, I posted Alaska: R. T. Kendall, author of “Total Forgiveness” (a forgive-others-&-be-free book) will be speaking at Abbott Loop on Sunday, in which I mentioned the ALCC podcast. But today, I’m thinking that maybe some would be confused if they would sign up for the podcast and then hear Rick speaking the most recent message.

For those unfamiliar with Abbott Loop Community Church (formerly called Abbott Loop Christian Center) in Anchorage, Alaska, Rick Benjamin had been senior pastor for 19 years until September of 2008, when Joshua Tanner took over. Rick mentioned this and what he’s been doing since in the introduction to his message, last Sunday, but ALCC cut this out of the podcast. I don’t quite understand why, but this could be confusing for listeners who had heard he’d stepped down. So I thought I’d clarify with this post.

Of their currently posted podcasts, the only message that I highly recommend people listen to (before it rotates out) is the message by Art Mathias about forgiving others. This message was a historical landmark in ALCC history for a number of reasons. Yay, Art — and the current leaders who allowed Art to speak!! Bravo!!!

And forgiving others is a key ingredient to real revival happening — so we can have church once again!!

Louie Giglio: How GREAT Is Our GOD — The Heavens Proclaim the GLORY of GOD! (But laminin doesn’t support the false doctrine of once-saved-always-saved)

Transcription and summary by Jeff Fenske.

[Updated and expanded in response to comment #16, below (Apparently, the producers pulled the YouTube clips, so I watched it here in order to respond. Why would they do this? Is it about getting the message out, or the money?)]

“The Whirlpool galaxy…contains 300 billion stars…, and it is one of hundreds of billions of other galaxies in the known universe that God has made.”

Part 1

The sun [an average sized star] is a million times the size of the earth.

Betelgeuse, a red supergiant star, is twice the size of the earth’s orbit around the sun!

And the largest star, Canis Majoris, “the big dog star,” …. “If the earth were a golf ball, Canis Majoris would be the height of Mount Everest!

Part 2

“Sin has a way of shrinking God down in our minds and puffing us up in our own estimation. But just a glance into the universe that God has made resizes everything in a heartbeat. …

We are worshiping an unrivaled, uncontested God of all kind of might and power and glory and awe! There is none like Him, anywhere in all of creation!”

Part 3

Part 4

Part 5

“There are millions and millions and millions of microscopic crosses holding you together right now.”

Sadly (this is so sad—because what preceded this was so awesome!), Louie uses the laminin, cross theory to support what is Satan’s greatest deception—once-saved-always-saved, OSAS, eternal security, “I’m okay; you’re okay”—saying the exact opposite of what Jesus taught in John 15 (“If you abide….”) and what the NT writers say elsewhere: Who-Goes-To-Heaven Scriptures — Narrow is the Way | Who are the Children of God? — “There is therefore now *no condemnation* to those who are IN CHRIST Jesus, who don’t WALK according to the flesh, but ACCORDING TO THE SPIRIT.”

The CHIEF PILLAR of Eternal Security (OSAS) Toppled! addresses this passage directly.

Giglio says what Jesus clearly did not say, no matter what Matt Redman’s song says over and over and over: “You never let go,” each time it’s played on the radio over and over and over (Positive encouragement — K-LOVE). Louie Giglio concludes this message with these words:

“He said, ‘I will hold you. Even when you let go of Me I’m not going to let go of you.’ Did you know there are millions and millions and millions of microscopic crosses holding you together right now. And one, giant, glorious cross of Jesus Christ is holding everyone of us that’s trusted in Him onto the Heavenly Father — and holding the Heavenly Father onto us. And it’s going to keep holding us onto Him, that cross, forever, and ever, and ever, and ever. We will never not be carried by the strong hand of the Universe-making God. And He will bring us through. That is the promise of the Everlasting God, Amen.”

This is the unbiblical eternal-security teaching (once-saved-always-saved). But what matters is what the Word of God actually says:

We have freedom in Christ if we abide in Him.

That’s what the Word of God says. We shouldn’t base our theology on a certain physical characteristic of God’s creation. We should base our theology on what the Bible actually says.

“Trusting” isn’t enough; it’s abiding in Him that counts. “Hope” isn’t enough; it’s abiding in Him that is real Christianity.

“Those who are Christ’s have crucified their flesh” – Paul in Galatians 5.

We must abide in Him and have clear consciences before Almighty God.

What Giglio concludes from laminin is hogwash. If you doubt that, please read: Who-Goes-To-Heaven Scriptures — Narrow is the Way | Who are the Children of God? — “There is therefore now *no condemnation* to those who are IN CHRIST Jesus, who don’t WALK according to the flesh, but ACCORDING TO THE SPIRIT”. This is the rest of the story that mainstream preachers won’t preach. They’re basing their theology on Paul’s introductions, not his conclusions, as well as what Jesus and other New Testament writers clearly said.

Whatever happened to the warnings that are so prevalent in the New Testament? Positive encouragement — K-LOVE now carries the day. We’ve re-written the gospel to the degree that America is now on the verge of total collapse.

“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter into the Kingdom of Heaven; but he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven.” – Jesus in Mt. 7:21

We’ve left our First-Love — as ‘Christians’ applaud the teachers who claim we never can — as they did here.

“This is what’s destroying America” — God.

Alaska: R. T. Kendall, author of “Total Forgiveness” (a forgive-others-&-be-free book) will be speaking at Abbott Loop on Sunday

R. T. Kendall, author of Total Forgiveness (a forgiving others book) will be speaking at Abbott Loop Community Church (ALCC) next Sunday morning in Anchorage, Alaska. The receptionist didn’t know what his topic would be. Service starts at 10am.

From: Amazon’s product description of Total Forgiveness:

When everything in you wants to hold a grudge, point a finger and remember the pain, God wants you to lay it all aside. You can avoid spiritual quicksand and experience the incredible freedom found in total forgiveness. Is total forgiveness easy? Of course not…but this book will give you a game plan…and the encouragement to cast out areas of unforgiveness that have kept you from enjoying the best God has to offer you.

From: Wikipedia

Robert Tillman Kendall (b. July 13, 1935) is a Christian writer, speaker, and teacher who pastored Westminster Chapel for 25 years. He is author of more than 40 books, including Total Forgiveness.[1] Kendall is currently listed as part of the Word, Spirit & Power team, a non-denominational Charismatic ministry.

Please pray for revival to happen at ALCC, and please pray for me. I have an opportunity right now for which I’ve been waiting many years. Please pray that hearts would be open to the truth.

Art Mathias on It’s Supernatural: Spiritual Roots of Disease — Healed Through Forgiving (If there is pain in a memory there is unforgiveness)

Chuck Baldwin: A Rudderless Ship Of State — “America’s Liberty Ship is dependent upon the twin mainsails of Morality and Constitutional Government to stay on course.”

As a result of this total breakdown of basic morality in virtually every distinguished element within the American framework, constitutional governance is also virtually nonexistent. Adams was right: “Our Constitution was made only for a moral . . . people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”

From: News with Views

In Patrick Henry’s immortal “Give Me Liberty Or Give Me Death” speech, he said, “[I]t is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope. We are apt to shut our eyes against a painful truth.” Never have Henry’s words been truer than they are today. For too long, good men have turned a blind eye to the obvious reality that America’s Ship of State has swerved significantly off course. In fact, it is no hyperbole to say that America’s Ship of State is completely rudderless and, absent a speedy course correction, seems destined to crash against the rocks of oppression and economic ruin in the very near future. For anyone willing to open their eyes, the manifestations of America’s almost-certain collision with history are everywhere.

America’s Liberty Ship is dependent upon the twin mainsails of Morality and Constitutional Government to stay on course. It is an irrefutable and irreversible law that these twin sails are indissolubly linked. We cannot have one without the other. America’s founders clearly understood this.

For example, our second President, John Adams, said, “We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge, or gallantry, would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes through a net. Our Constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”

Samuel Adams (called the “Father of the American Revolution”) said, “He therefore is the truest friend to the liberty of this country who tries most to promote its virtue, and who, so far as his power and influence extend, will not suffer a man to be chosen into any office of power and trust who is not a wise and virtuous man . . . The sum of all is, if we would most truly enjoy this gift of Heaven, let us become a virtuous people.” …

Our first President, George Washington (called the “Father of his Country”), said, “Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, Religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of Patriotism, who should labor to subvert these great Pillars of human happiness, these firmest props of the duties of Men and Citizens.”

And to quote Patrick Henry again, “Bad men cannot make good citizens . . . A vitiated state of morals, a corrupted public conscience, is incompatible with freedom.”

Yet, what do we see taking place all over America–including in the halls of government, the boardrooms of business, and the sanctuaries of churches? An almost complete and total breakdown of morality. And by a breakdown of morality, I am referring to much more than sexual immorality.

Morality demands honesty and equity in judgment. Morality is selfless. Morality is humble. Morality is jealous over truth and justice. Morality would never jeopardize the future on the altar of the present. Morality does not place personal advancement above principle. Morality respects its heritage and honors its ancestors. And Morality gladly submits to lawful authority, especially divine authority.

But compare basic morality to the modus operandi of today’s governments, businesses, and churches.

Pastor Chuck Baldwin: What’s Really Going On In Haiti? [Will ‘Christians’ James-3 curse Pastor Baldwin for exposing Bush family/CIA drug-running?]

“I know if I broach this topic [Bush family drug-running involvement – ed.], many readers (especially my Christian brethren who live under the delusion that the Bush family can do no wrong) will refuse to believe anything I report and will even take their anger and umbrage out on me. So be it.”

“There are many things that do not add up regarding what is going on in Haiti. The way the earthquake behaved; the lack of related seismic and tsunamic activity usually associated with earthquakes of this magnitude; the unprecedented involvement of US military forces being used for “relief efforts” even as commanders are desperate to fill combat theaters in Iraq and Afghanistan; the occupation of another independent nation, which occurred at lightning speed; the vast sums of US taxpayer dollars being expended; the devastation done to key Haitian governmental and banking institutions—which were known to be conduits for international financial disbursements—with virtually no devastation experienced anywhere else…”

From: News with Views

People of goodwill everywhere are rightly sympathetic to the plight of hundreds of thousands of innocent Haitians in the aftermath of the terrible earthquake that rocked the island country. Private donations and volunteer efforts are pouring into Haiti from all over the globe—especially from the United States. This is a good thing, right? So, why am I troubled?

[…]

For one thing, why was an earthquake of this magnitude not felt beyond Port-au-Prince? (The only reports saying tremors were felt out of Haiti belong to US-controlled sources.) All of the testimonies that I have read from people living in the adjoining country of the Dominican Republic (which shares the same island with Haiti) that were quoted by French, British, or Spanish outlets universally say they felt nothing. If the foreign press is reporting the story accurately, the devastation was almost exclusively contained in and around Port-au-Prince. That is very strange to me. Even most of the roads reportedly remained open after the quake.

Another oddity is the fact that this earthquake did not produce a tsunami. It is being called “miraculous” that an earthquake measuring 7.0 on the Richter Scale did not produce a colossal tsunami, which would have affected everyone in the region.

[…]

GAII [Global Analysis International Intelligence] further speculates that the earthquake may have been the work of US Black Ops, which “flattened the French embassy and many of its officials, imploded the United Nations’ own establishments in the Haitian capital, and no doubt obliterated evidence of US Government and rogue official drug-running complicity . . . channeled through the Haitian capital for many years.”

See the intelligence report here.

Intelligence reports are also circulating about the possible disruption of liens and seizures of trillions of dollars by the international community relative to past crimes committed by former Presidents George Bush I and II, and Bill Clinton, which were being channeled through Haiti’s Central Bank.

If any of this is even remotely true, it is certainly more than convenient that the Haitian capital was destroyed.

This particular part of the story is a real sore spot with me. And I know if I broach this topic, many readers (especially my Christian brethren who live under the delusion that the Bush family can do no wrong) will refuse to believe anything I report and will even take their anger and umbrage out on me. So be it.

I am personally convinced that certain members of the Bush and Clinton families have been involved in the international smuggling of illicit drugs for decades. I have spoken in confidence with those who were in positions to know, and they have emphatically told me that both then-Arkansas Governor Bill Clinton and then-President George H.W. Bush were complicit in CIA-assisted drug running out of Mena, Arkansas. (You don’t think I would say this if I did not have absolute confidence in the integrity and credibility of these sources, do you? Plus, why would they tell me this at potential great harm to themselves, if it were not true? And, no, I cannot divulge their names, for obvious reasons.) And there is absolutely no reason to believe that similar operations are not ongoing. In my opinion, it would be utterly naïve to think otherwise.

After all, it has been often reported that the CIA used Army Special Forces troops to facilitate the smuggling of drugs out of Indochina during the Vietnam War, has it not? Yes, it has. That rogue elements within the US government would use war–or even earthquakes—as cover and facilitation for illegal drug smuggling or money laundering would not surprise me one bit.

I realize it is extremely difficult for many Americans to contemplate that members of their own federal government could be evil enough to be involved in anything such as is implied above. According to the thinking of many Americans, evil people only live in Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran, or North Korea. And, of course, that is exactly what government propagandists want us to believe.

The truth is, no country or people has a monopoly on sin. As the prophet Jeremiah was inspired to say, “The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?” (Jeremiah 17:9) The Apostle Paul agreed. He told the Philippians, “We . . . have no confidence in the flesh.” (Philippians 3:3)

Thomas Jefferson said virtually the same thing when he said, “In questions of power, then, let no more be heard of confidence in man, but bind him down from mischief by the chains of the Constitution.”

This is why Jefferson and the rest of America’s founders insisted that we should be diligent to hold our civil magistrates accountable to the limits and protections of the US Constitution. They well understood the sentiments so wisely expressed by Lord Acton, “Power tends to corrupt, and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Great men are almost always bad men.” Christians, of all people, should understand this.

So, why are so many of us so quick to believe everything our government and their toadies in the national media are telling us? Are we so naïve as to believe that unregenerate politicians in Washington, D.C., are incapable of the same evil acts of barbarity and savagery that might be found in other parts of the world? Are sinners less sinful because they happened to receive their fallen nature from American bloodlines?
