Loving People Enough Ministries

December 2023 


Keep our focus on God, Eyes set toward Eternity, to be Kingdom minded through the mind of Christ.

For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder. And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end, upon the throne of David and over His kingdom, to order it and establish it with judgment and justice from that time forward, even forever.
The zeal of the Lord of hosts will perform this.”  Isaiah 9:6-7.

Dear Partners and Prayer Warriors,

Jesus, the Refiner of silver in the Old Testament is the same Jesus in the New Testament who went through the refiner’s fire at the cross where He, Himself took on the dross (sin) of the world at Calvary. Jesus went through the excruciating refining process on the cross, so the Father could see a perfect reflection of Himself when He looks at us.  In the middle of those two things, He set His deity aside and came into this world as a fresh new baby and New Covenant. He grew and matured to be about His Father’s business by the age of twelve; and as a human, experienced all that we have or will ever experience from start to finish and yet He was/is still the Refiner of long ago.


Isaiah prophesied about Jesus and His namesake, the Gospel of Matthew calls Him Immanuel – God with us and Luke refers to Him as the Son of the Most High, the Son of God, and Savior and yet still, He is ALWAYS The Refiner. 

During His time of ministry and after His resurrection, He was the Refiner’s fire that dealt with the religiosity of the world.  Pharisees, Sadducees and religious legalists tried to test and trap Him in His own Word but to no avail.  Jesus has always been the example to glean from. He does not change. He is from everlasting to everlasting. His Fire now lives in us and burns up the chaff of enemy forces that would try to steal, kill and destroy us.

Jesus is the representation of our Father, who is perfect love. He came for us! He came to live and dwell among us and He started as a baby born in Bethlehem and moved to the town of Nazareth so the prophecy was fulfilled. He loves us so much that He put himself in many roles to gain our salvation through Him and refine us into what He has called us to be and do; and He did it as a baby – the New Covenant in flesh!

As we celebrate Christmas, we are celebrating the birth of Jesus but His story is as long, wide, deep and high as His love is for us. Jesus was at the beginning and all throughout history, but He is also The Promise of the ages and He is the Promise-Keeper. HE IS GOD! He loved us first and He still loves us most! Jesus  is why birthdays are so important! Celebrate each of your birthdays with Him just as we celebrate His with Him. He’s so good! And He is fun!!!!
