    Sounds Like Greek To Me - Episode 251

    Sounds Like Greek To Me - Episode 251

    This week I am answering Garrett's question about Colossians 1:24.  Thanks Doc.  
    He asked:
    What is the concept of what is lacking in Christ Suffering?  
    Colossians 1:24
    Paul's Ministry to the Church
    24 Now I rejoice in my sufferings for your sake, and in my flesh I am filling up what is lacking in Christ's afflictions for the sake of his body, that is, the church, kjv
     
     
    Who now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up that which is behind of the afflictions of Christ in my flesh for his body's sake, which is the church: ESV
     
     Now I rejoice in my sufferings for your sake, and in my flesh I am supplementing what is lacking [a]in Christ’s afflictions in behalf of His body, which is the church. NASV
     
    I want you to know how glad I am that it’s me sitting here in this jail and not you. There’s a lot of suffering to be entered into in this world—the kind of suffering Christ takes on. I welcome the chance to take my share in the church’s part of that suffering. When I became a servant in this church, I experienced this suffering as a sheer gift, God’s way of helping me serve you, laying out the whole truth. The Message
    Why read the Bible?  How To Read the Bible?  Why Read the Bible?
    About Greek and how the Bible can throw us off sometimes.
    How God can use that to teach us.  Like He did me this week.
    The Bible is an anthology—a compilation of texts of a variety of forms—originally written in Hebrew, Aramaic, and Koine Greek.
    By and by, when the morning comes
    All the saints of God are gathered home
    We will tell the story how we've overcome
    And we'll understand it better by and by

    Season of the Witch - Ep. 248

    Season of the Witch - Ep. 248

     
    This week begins the "spooky season."  It is a time when the occult and things anti-christian are displayed innocently.  The result is an increase of demonic influences.  I am talking about spiritual warfare.  
    Sis. Sonia sent in a question this week that inspired this weeks study of witchcraft taken from an interesting historical account of King Saul as written in the book of 1 Samuel 28.
    1 Samuel 28
    King James Version
    28 And it came to pass in those days, that the Philistines gathered their armies together for warfare, to fight with Israel. And Achish said unto David, Know thou assuredly, that thou shalt go out with me to battle, thou and thy men.
    2 And David said to Achish, Surely thou shalt know what thy servant can do. And Achish said to David, Therefore will I make thee keeper of mine head for ever.
    3 Now Samuel was dead, and all Israel had lamented him, and buried him in Ramah, even in his own city. And Saul had put away those that had familiar spirits, and the wizards, out of the land.
    4 And the Philistines gathered themselves together, and came and pitched in Shunem: and Saul gathered all Israel together, and they pitched in Gilboa.
    5 And when Saul saw the host of the Philistines, he was afraid, and his heart greatly trembled.
    6 And when Saul enquired of the Lord, the Lord answered him not, neither by dreams, nor by Urim, nor by prophets.
    7 Then said Saul unto his servants, Seek me a woman that hath a familiar spirit, that I may go to her, and enquire of her. And his servants said to him, Behold, there is a woman that hath a familiar spirit at Endor.
    8 And Saul disguised himself, and put on other raiment, and he went, and two men with him, and they came to the woman by night: and he said, I pray thee, divine unto me by the familiar spirit, and bring me him up, whom I shall name unto thee.
    9 And the woman said unto him, Behold, thou knowest what Saul hath done, how he hath cut off those that have familiar spirits, and the wizards, out of the land: wherefore then layest thou a snare for my life, to cause me to die?
    10 And Saul sware to her by the Lord, saying, As the Lord liveth, there shall no punishment happen to thee for this thing.
    11 Then said the woman, Whom shall I bring up unto thee? And he said, Bring me up Samuel.
    12 And when the woman saw Samuel, she cried with a loud voice: and the woman spake to Saul, saying, Why hast thou deceived me? for thou art Saul.
    13 And the king said unto her, Be not afraid: for what sawest thou? And the woman said unto Saul, I saw gods ascending out of the earth.
    14 And he said unto her, What form is he of? And she said, An old man cometh up; and he is covered with a mantle. And Saul perceived that it was Samuel, and he stooped with his face to the ground, and bowed himself.
    15 And Samuel said to Saul, Why hast thou disquieted me, to bring me up? And Saul answered, I am sore distressed; for the Philistines make war against me, and God is departed from me, and answereth me no more, neither by prophets, nor by dreams: therefore I have called thee, that thou mayest make known unto me what I shall do.
    16 Then said Samuel, Wherefore then dost thou ask of me, seeing the Lord is departed from thee, and is become thine enemy?
    17 And the Lord hath done to him, as he spake by me: for the Lord hath rent the kingdom out of thine hand, and given it to thy neighbour, even to David:
    18 Because thou obeyedst not the voice of the Lord, nor executedst his fierce wrath upon Amalek, therefore hath the Lord done this thing unto thee this day.
    19 Moreover the Lord will also deliver Israel with thee into the hand of the Philistines: and to morrow shalt thou and thy sons be with me: the Lord also shall deliver the host of Israel into the hand of the Philistines.
    20 Then Saul fell straightway all along on the earth, and was sore afraid, because of the words of Samuel: and there was no strength in him; for he had eaten no bread all the day, nor all the n

    The Prayer of Jabez - Ep 247

    The Prayer of Jabez - Ep 247

    1 CHRONICLES 4:10
    And Jabez called on the God of Israel, saying, Oh that thou wouldest bless me indeed, and enlarge my coast, and that thine hand might be with me, and that thou wouldest keep me from evil, that it may not grieve me! And God granted him that which he requested.

    HE CALLED THE RIGHT ONE.
    ASKED TO BE BLESSED AND ENLARGE HIS TERRITORY/MINISTRY
    AND THAT GOD WOULD BE WITH HIM AND THAT HE WOULD KEEP HIM FROM EVIL, SO THAT IT WOULD NOT SLOW HIM DOWN.
     
    2 Corinthians 3:5-6
     
    Not that we are sufficient of ourselves to think any thing as of ourselves; but our sufficiency is of God;
    6 Who also hath made us able ministers of the new testament; not of the letter, but of the spirit: for the letter killeth, but the spirit giveth life.
     
    ACTS 1:8
     
    But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.
     
    ACTS 2: 23-31 
    Him, being delivered by the determinate counsel and foreknowledge of God, ye have taken, and by wicked hands have crucified and slain:
    24 Whom God hath raised up, having loosed the pains of death: because it was not possible that he should be holden of it.
    25 For David speaketh concerning him, I foresaw the Lord always before my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved:
    26 Therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad; moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope:
    27 Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption.
    28 Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; thou shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance.
    29 Men and brethren, let me freely speak unto you of the patriarch David, that he is both dead and buried, and his sepulchre is with us unto this day.
    30 Therefore being a prophet, and knowing that God had sworn with an oath to him, that of the fruit of his loins, according to the flesh, he would raise up Christ to sit on his throne;
    31 He seeing this before spake of the resurrection of Christ, that his soul was not left in hell, neither his flesh did see corruption.
     
     
    ACTS 2: 42-47
    42 And they continued stedfastly in the apostles' doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.
    43 And fear came upon every soul: and many wonders and signs were done by the apostles.
    44 And all that believed were together, and had all things common;
    45 And sold their possessions and goods, and parted them to all men, as every man had need.
    46 And they, continuing daily with one accord in the temple, and breaking bread from house to house, did eat their meat with gladness and singleness of heart,
    47 Praising God, and having favour with all the people. And the Lord added to the church daily such as should be saved.
     
    EPHESIANS 3:19
    19 And to know the love of Christ, which passeth knowledge, that ye might be filled with all the fulness of God.
     
    2 CHRONICLES 16:19
     For the eyes of the Lord run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to shew himself strong in the behalf of them whose heart is perfect toward him. Herein thou hast done foolishly: therefore from henceforth thou shalt have wars.

    Only The Lonely... Episode 246

    Only The Lonely... Episode 246

    Loneliness is part of the human experience.  How often do we think about it and its affects?
    Ecclesiastes 4:9-12
    I am not able to bear all this people alone, because it is too heavy for me. - Numbers 11:14  
    David said I am like a pelican of the wilderness: I am like an owl of the desert. Pslam 102:6
    Jeremiah said For these things I weep; mine eye, mine eye runneth down with water, because the comforter that should relieve my soul is far from me: my children are desolate, because the enemy prevailed.
    Psalm 27:10 When my father and my mother forsake me, then the Lord will take me up.
    Hebrews 13:5-6
    5 Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.
    6 So that we may boldly say, The Lord is my helper, and I will not fear what man shall do unto me.

True Bible Believing, Guidance in Christ’s Church

Rev Kenn ceaselessly teaches of the Lord Christ and directly from the Holy Bible, but so well framed in what we as Christians face today (not that we face anything different than the Church of centuries ago, but definitely, we see new ways evil will try to tempt us away). Kenn is always uplifting, and often with a bit of humor. In Speak Life Church, Rev Kenn brings us the Word - wherever we are, and whenever we hear, we are joined together in the Lord. This ministry in podcast form is a blessing! Thank you, Rev Kenn.

Simple and Clear

Pastor Kenn is a spiritually gifted preacher. He has an extraordinary way of making the word of God easy to understand. I look forward to future podcast that will help me grow closer to God while strengthening my faith walk.

Kenn’s ministry

First off I want to thank Kenn for his ministry. Personally I have felt distant from my physical church but The Speak Life Podcast has kept me grounded. This show is a wonderful once a week quick lesson, sermon, and bible reading that is well done.
