MN: (Referring to “Perseverance” article by Rex Johnson) Rex, what a great article! Thanks for being transparent and sharing about the challenges. Blessings!
NC: (Referring to Carolyn’s letter to monthly donors) Dear Carolyn and Rex – Thanks for sharing this teaching; I love it and know it needs to be taught more and especially to the young ones. Some of the children being raised now seem to be getting further and further away from God. Not walking with the Lord early in life can have consequences beyond their expectations. Love you…and be blessed today.
(Referring to “Vigilance, Opposition and Perseverance” article by Rex Johnson) Dear Rex and Carolyn- Our Messianic synagogue did a good teaching with a team of people at a service two weeks ago. It was about the story of Nehemiah. Our leader put a sheet up on the wall to demonstrate how everyone in the audience could come up and place a “brick” on that sheet and how it filled up the whole wall with each person putting a “stone” (made out of cardboard) on it. It also demonstrated how difficult it was to build this wall. And we had a man with a big sword watching us as we put the stones up. I think it gave us all a picture of what God can do when a person hears from Him and obeys! That wall was built in a very short time, too! Thanks for sharing.
NJ: I’m standing on God’s Word that all is well no matter what. One thing after another, but I will “fear not,” only believe. I’m staying focused on what the Lord is saying. Thank you for praying for us. Please keep me, us, our marriage covered in prayer. I’ll keep all of you in prayer as well.
OH: Thank you so much for all you do. I pray for CKI and all the prayer warriors who are involved in so many God-given blessings.
(To CKI staff) Thanks so much for your help. I have received all of the emails you send a stander and have contacted Carolyn to get connected. You have been in my prayers today. Thanks for your ministry and being such a blessing to be there for me and I’m sure many others. Take care and many blessings.
TN: Dear Carolyn and Rex- Even though my husband has passed away, God keeps revealing things to me about my marriage that hopefully will help others not make the same mistakes. Just this morning I repented of not giving God glory for all the blessings He bestowed upon us while we were married. Yet I revel in God’s wonderful love, goodness, mercy, grace, provision and protection that He has bestowed upon me all these years as well. CKI has been such a rich teaching and learning experience for me.
The hardest part that I face is that I no longer pray for my husband. That season of my life is over. It is now in God’s wonderful hands and His grace is sufficient for all past events. I stand for marriage covenant and take heart to all the encouragement from CKI. I thank all you wonderful people who stand with others through the years. The CKI staff has been such an encouragement to me personally. We find joy and peace in standing with our God for covenant, especially when there is so little understanding of that in our “Christian” world today. I do hope though, that when I step into heaven I will be able to “talk things over” with Jesus, or maybe we will just understand everything when we arrive.
I realize more and more that everyone needs the Gospel and everyone needs an opportunity to receive Jesus as their Lord and Savior. So I have written to the “other person” to share with her how she can know salvation and heaven. If I were to counsel a stander, I would say first, you need to give your life to our Lord Jesus Christ. Surrender everything to Him. Then go to God’s Word and ask Him how to deal with every situation and He will show you (James 1). You are His child and He will not let you down even in the hard times. And of course, groups are important for fellowship and teaching. One of our group doesn’t want her estranged husband to sell their house. But he is so anxious to separate. Of course, I pray that it won’t sell as she desires, yet I pray that God will cover the whole situation with His power and presence as the enemy seeks to separate them. We have the armor of God and He shows us how to respond and what to do.
I am eternally grateful for all the teaching and support you have been to me through the years. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to Him, and He will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6
