Grasping The Senses

Hands of the Lord Tuesday, March 26, 2019

by Rev. Marjorie on 04/13/19

By Rev. Marjorie Kummrow

My daughter received a prophetic word for 2019 that got me to think. The Lord through Dr. Pamala Smith asked, “What is it that you have in your hand?” The answer to that question is two-fold, for in Tracey’s hand at times she finds a microphone, and at other times she finds a computer.

Tracey uses her microphone often to sing praises to the Lord. She also uses her microphone when she does voice over for various advertisements that come her way. However, she is very selective in how she uses her voice, and will not accept an audition that promotes immorality or secular humanism. Therefore, the auditions that she accepts are few and far between. When, however, that microphone is in her hand, it becomes the amplified voice of the Lord, speaking or singing through her.

At other times, and more frequently as of late, Tracey holds a computer in her hand. She is very skilled in computer software and programming. Her knowledge and expertise of the computer have opened the door for her to bless others. She has helped her friends to navigate where they were unable to travel. She has built the Sweet Manna website as well as personal websites for others. It is because of Tracey’s skills in editing and publishing that I was able to publish two books and numerous articles and studies. She has been a great help to other authors as well. However, because of her moral code, she will not help or promote published material that she would consider to be immoral.

Turning down voice-over auditions or publishing work translates into turning down money. A cost that she is willing to pay for her integrity as a daughter of the King. Time and time again, what Tracey holds in her hand has been used by God to bless His people. Currently, she is helping a missionary with the publishing of the book that he has written at the age of eighty. What Tracey holds in her hand is the tool that the Lord is using to get His Word from the heart of one man to the hearts of many through the written word.

As we discussed the prophecy that Tracey was given at the beginning of the year, I reminded her that Moses was asked the same question. “What is it that you have in your hand.” When asked this question, Moses would not have had any idea how powerful his staff would become as he used it in obedience to the Lord’s instruction. Moses’s staff was just a stick from a tree with seemingly little significant use. Yet, this common staff became the supernatural instrument that the Lord used to part the Red Sea and set His people free.

Some time ago, I was asked the same question, “Margie, what do you hold in your hand?” This question was asked of me during the summer of 1992 when I was in Israel. When I walked the streets of Jerusalem, I walked with a tambourine decorated with beautiful colorful ribbons. I knew by the question that the Lord wanted to use the tambourine as His instrument of blessing. I was asked often, why I carried the tambourine? When this happened, I was able to share that it was instrument of worship. When asked about the ribbons, I was able to share the gospel using the colorful ribbons. The black ribbon signified sin, the red ribbon symbolized the blood of Jesus, and the white ribbon to represent the garment of righteousness. I shared that the yellow ribbon reminded me of God’s glory and the blue ribbon was the color that surrounds His throne. I told the story of Jesus’ death, burial and resurrection. I was able to tell the greatest story ever told because of what I had in my hand.

Recently, a very good friend of mine gave me a beautiful butterfly ring, that I wear every day. Twice now while out and about, I have had compliments on my ring. Once when I was dropping off information with a receptionist, and another time when I was paying for something at the checkout counter. Both occasions gave me an opportunity to tell them what the butterfly means to me. “You see,” I said, “The butterfly is a picture of the born-again life. Just as this butterfly changed from a caterpillar into a beautiful butterfly and became a new creation, the same thing happens with an individual when they receive Jesus into their heart; they become a beautiful new creation.” I took advantage of the opportunity that was given to me because of the compliment, to share the gospel message very briefly. It only took a minute, but I used the ring that was “in/on my hand to preach the “good news.”

The Word of the Lord that was given to Tracey at the beginning of the year, “What is it that you have in your hand,” can just as easily be asked of each one of us? What is it that you, child of God, have in your hand right now? Do not think that whatever it is, is insignificant. It may very well be the very thing that God wants to use to bless people and to bring glory to Himself.

Ecclesiastes 9:10 “Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all of your might”…

Golden Nugggets from the Psalms Tuesday, October 30, 2018

by Rev. Marjorie on 04/13/19

Psalm 9:16 The wicked is snared in the work of his own hands.

I have lived nearly eight decades now and never in any span of time have my eyes been exposed to so much wicked behavior as I have observed in these last days of my life. I know I should not be surprise, for the Bible is clear that in the last days we would see much perversion of truth, and disregard for life. Never-the-less, the intrusion of evil in every spectrum of our society causes my heart to be vexed to the max. I confess, that I find mercy to be illusive in my own heart due to the heinous crimes my eyes have been subjected to.

My heart cry is for Justice! Therefore, this promise that the wicked will be ensnared by the work of their own hands, brings much comfort to me. I am trusting and believing that those that are planning evil against our President, and the people of God, Jew and Christian alike, will be trapped by their own evil actions. For what-so-ever a man sow, he shall also reap.

Golden Nuggets from the Psalms Monday, October 29, 2018

by Rev. Marjorie on 04/13/19

Psalm 8:3 When I consider Thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which Thou hast ordained.

The carnal mind sees God in nothing, not even in spiritual things, His Word and ordinances. The spiritual mind sees Him in everything, even in natural things, in looking on the heavens and the earth and all the creatures. Robert Leighton
Could we transport ourselves above the moon, could we reach the highest star above our heads, we should instantly discover new skies, new stars, new suns, new systems, and perhaps more magnificently adorned. But even there, the vast dominions of our great Creator would not terminate; we should then find, to our astonishment, that we had only arrived at the borders of the works of God.

How admirable are those celestial bodies! I am dazzled with their splendor and enchanted with their beauty! But notwithstanding this, however beautiful, and however richly adorned, yet this sky is void of intelligence. It is a stranger to its own beauty, while I, who am mere clay, molded by a divine hand, am endowed with sense and reason. Christopher Christian Sturm’s

Marked Technocrats Saturday, March 2, 2019

by Rev. Marjorie on 04/13/19

In Barcelona, Spain, on February 25th, the mobile phone technocrats, held their annual Congress of Young Globalists. It is important to note this of the conference, it was sponsored by Spain’s first internet banking service, Banco Sabadell, and organized by elite technocrats consisting of inventors, scientists, physicists, and the like. Every cell phone company is behind this technological push into our future.

The highlight of the congress was the public demonstration of a young technocrat inventor having a tiny microchip inserted into his right hand. This was celebrated with great joy by all involved. The news has informed us of others who have received a chip for work purposes, this was not news that would stop the presses. What followed next was, another volunteer with a chip in his hand arrived on the scene, and became a picture of Bible prophecy being experienced for those that have eyes to see! With in seconds, connecting his cell phone to his micro-chipped hand, money was transferred from one bank account to another bank account. The place exploded with jubilation. As I watched, I began to cry.

The Bible warns us in chapters 13 and 14 of Revelation that the day will come when no one will be able to buy or sell with out the “mark of the beast.” Sadly, and this is why I was crying, the Bible also says that anyone taking the “mark of the beast” will be condemned forever. It is worthy to note that during the live demonstration of the microchip being inserted, once it was completed, it was announced, “he has been marked.”

I am posting this video below in comments section as well as on the Sweet Manna Facebook Site, for your viewing.

Facts about the Bible Monday, January 21, 2019

by Rev. Marjorie on 04/13/19

The following is an excerpt from the book I am currently writing and hoping to publish this year sometime. What follows is very good information to have when witnessing to a skeptic or an intellectual.

There are several ways that the Lord communicates with us. First and foremost He has communicated with us through the written word, the Bible. He spoke audibly to the prophets of old for 4,000 years which is recorded in the Old Testament. God came to earth in the form of the man Jesus and He spoke volumes to us. He also has spoken to us through the authors of the New Testament who were men who were trained by Jesus. He continues to speak to us today through many people that have a prophetic function and through various anointed vessels that He chooses to use.

Because of those that mock the Bible and because the Intellects consider the Bible to be a book of fairy tales, I would like to interject some facts about the Bible at this point that should silence even the most intellectual and solidify the accuracy of the Bible. For the Bible has stood the test of time. It is the only book that has accurately foretold the future. In total, the Bible is 27% Prophecy, predicting many things such as the rise and fall of Nations and kings throughout history. Since the Bible’s emphasis is on the King of kings, Jesus, I did some research on the fulfillment of the prophecies concerning just Jesus’ first and second coming. There are a great number of discrepancies in the actual number of prophecies that are about our Lord in the Old Testament. The reason for this I discovered is because some of the same prophecies are repeated by different authors at different times in history. Many of them have recorded the same events that were to occur in history. In total, we have around 700 references in the Hebrew text about the coming of the Messiah.

First, let’s look at the astonishing fulfillment of the prophecies that Jesus fulfilled in his first coming. From Genesis to Malachi there are prophecies that foretell the exact events of Jesus’ life; from identifying his place of birth, to the account of the Roman soldiers tossing lots for his garments at the foot of the cross. These prophecies span 4,000 years, written by different prophets at various times in the 4,000-year history. All of these prophecies were written long before the man Jesus was ever born. Yet the accuracy in which they were fulfilled by Jesus is astounding!

Mathematicians have figured the odds of one single person fulfilling all 700 of these prophecies, (which history confirms; Jesus did fulfill concerning His first coming) is so astronomical that our minds could not possibly comprehend it. For instance, Dr. Peter Stoner estimated the odds against just 48 of only 300 or so Old Testament prophecies about the Messiah to be fulfilled in one person. He calculated the odds at 1 in 10 to the power 157.[1] What it means for these prophecies to be fulfilled by just one person is 1 in 1,000,000,000, 000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000,000.00

I cannot go on because the zeros would continue to fill up several pages. Jesus, however, fulfilled more than just 48, He fulfilled around 700. If the odds are calculated, those calculations would fill an entire book full of zeros. These odds are so beyond what our minds can comprehend that one has to conclude that none of these predictions and their fulfillment has happened by chance. It is only possible because of the supernatural hand of God almighty who has written history in advance of it happening, through the prophets of old. History, after all, is, of course, His story.

Dr. Mark Hitchcock has a book on prophecy in which he mentions that there are more than 300 references to the Lord's coming in the New Testament, which has only 260 chapters. Prophecy makes up twenty-eight and one-half percent of the New Testament. There are over 300 prophecies concerning Christ's Second Coming in the New Testament — one out of every 30 verses. He also states that there are 109 prophecies of His first coming (which He fulfilled completely), yet there are 224 that forecast His Second Coming. Twenty-six books of the New Testament refer to the promise of His coming, and three of those were personal letters to individuals.[2] The rest highlighted this important doctrine that was preached in the earliest days of the church. It would do the Church well if these truths were preached today.

This statistical data are facts, not just someone’s opinion. Therefore, an honest intellectual must come to terms with the fact that his own personal opinion is contrary to the mathematical facts of history and the prophecies of the Bible. I believe this kind of information is so important because of all the negative input in our culture today concerning the Bible. Those who continue believing it’s a book full of fairy tales and old wife’s tales have not yet considered the astronomical odds presented here, and they have not yet come in contact with Jesus personally. Jesus is the volume of the Book we call the Bible. All anyone has to do is ask God to prove His existence to you, and He will if your heart is sincere. He wants to be intimately acquainted with you. We can have great hope that Jesus will indeed fulfill the remaining prophecies about Himself because He has proven to us that the Word of God is true and trustworthy by fulfilling every single prophecy concerning his first coming. Even though some of those prophecies were written about him long before He was even born. The Bible is the only book with a voice that speaks accurately about events before they happen.

It is a thrill and a wonderment to hear the voice of the Lord either audibly or by hearing that small still voice from deep within where the Holy Spirit resides when one is “born again” and has been baptized in the Holy Spirit. The truth is, however, that if the Lord would choose to never speak again to anyone, we have in the written text enough information to last us a lifetime. The Bible is definitely the greatest book ever written.

Golden Nuggets from the Psalms Saturday, November 3, 2018

Psalm12:2-3 They speak vanity every one with his neighbor. With flattering lips and with a double heart do they speak. The Lord shall cut off all flattering lips, and the tongue that speaketh proud things.

The original is, “A heart and a heart;” one for the church the other for the change; one for Sundays, another for working days; one for the king, another for the pope. A man without a heart is a wonder, but a man with two hearts is a monster. It is said of Judas, “There were many hearts in one man;” and we read of the saints, “There was one heart in many men.” Thomas Adams

When men cease to be faithful to their God, he who expects to find them so to each other will be much disappointed. George Horne

We are witnessing at this very time in history the fall of proud hypocrites who were elected into governmental positions under false pretenses. We’ve heard their eloquent speeches filled with “double talk,” saying one thing and doing another. They create laws to protect animal life from scientific experiment and at the same time, see nothing wrong with our tax dollars supporting Planned Parenthood. These abortionists slaughter babies in the womb of their mothers and then sell their body parts for experimentation. Woman march for woman’s rights, while supporting the killing of their unborn daughters. All of them Hypocrites!!!

The Lord is indeed cutting these proud double hearted people down. He is having His Revolution, just as He has said, through His prophetic people. He is turning the tables of the money changers once again. He is exposing the evil acts of the wicked that have for decades been hidden. Yet only those with spiritual eyes are able to see that this Revolution has at its head, the King of Kings and the Lord or Lords who intends for His Glory to cover the earth. Rev. Marjorie Kummrow

Golden Nuggets from the Psalms Thursday, November 1, 2018

Psalm 11:5 The LORD trieth the righteous: but the wicked and him that loveth violence his soul hateth.

Except our sins, there is not such plenty of anything in all the world as there is of troubles which come from sin, as one heavy messenger came to Job after another. Since we are not in paradise, but in the wilderness, we must look for one trouble after another. As a bear came to David after a lion, and a giant after a bear, and a king after a giant, and Philistines after a king, so, when believers have fought with poverty, they shall fight with infamy; when they have fought with infancy, they shall fight with sickness; they shall be like a laborer who is never out of work. Henry Smith

It is the Lord’s love for each of us that brings His tests into our lives. Why me, we ask? Or often I hear, “Not again, why must I go around this mountain again?” Let me suggest, that the Lord grades the “test” based on our attitude and how we respond. So, if we fail the test because of an unrighteous attitude in dealing with the trial, we can expect to go around that same mountain again until we get a passing grade. His love will not give up on us until we have been conformed into the image of His Son. Rev. Marjorie Kummrow

Golden Nuggets from the Psalms Wednesday, October 31, 2018

by Rev. Marjorie on 04/13/19

Psalm 10:4 The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God. God is not in all his thoughts.

Pride plunged Satan from heaven into hell; it banished our first parents from paradise; and it will, in a similar manner, ruin all who indulge in it. It keeps us in ignorance of God; shuts us out from His favor; prevents us from resembling Him. Beware of pride! Beware lest you indulge it imperceptibly, for it is perhaps, of all sins, the most secret, subtle, and insinuating.

The pride of the wicked is the principal reason why they will not seek after the knowledge of God. Pride consists in an unduly exalted opinion of one’s self. It is, therefore, impatient of a rival, hates a superior, and cannot endure a master. It is evident that nothing can be more painful to a proud heart than the thoughts of such a being as God. Edward Payson

The only place that God is not is in the thoughts of the wicked. This is a damning accusation’ for where the God of heaven is not, the lord of hell is reigning and raging; and if God be not in our thoughts, our thoughts our thoughts will bring us to perdition. Charles H. Spurgeon

Let me challenge my readers to examine their thoughts. Your thought life is the measuring stick as to your devotion to the Living God. One time when I was in prayer asking the Lord to examine my heart, I asked Him if I had any idols before Him. I was somewhat astounded with what the Holy Spirit whispered to me. He said, “What ever it is that you think about more than you think about Me, that thing is your idol.” The sin of pride is an ongoing concern for the followers of Christ because it is a sin that loves to hide itself in our though life. Let each of us for the sake of our own growth examine the things that we think about. Rev. Marjorie Kummrow


What Ezekiel Might Say To America Today

by Rev. Marjorie on 08/06/16

Today I decided to focus my study of the Word in the book of Ezekiel.  If I may I would like to share my observations with you.  Ezekiel was called to be the Lord’s voice to Israel during their captivity in Babylon.  Because of Israel’s sin against God they were removed from the land and taken captive by Nebuchanezzar.  As I was reading, it became obvious to me that the state of Israel during Ezekiel’s prophetic ministry is very much like the state that we find our own nation in this crucial hour. 

Like Israel our nation did not fall from God overnight.  It has been a slow process that seems to be accelerating exponentially.  We have been on a slippery slope since the sexual revolution that began in the 40’s and 50’s, followed by the removal of prayer in school during the 60’s. The spilling of innocent blood began when the Supreme Court ruled that the banning of abortions was unconstitutional in 1973.  Then in 1993 the Hawaii Supreme Court rule that the banning of same sex marriage was unconstitutional started an avalanche that has changed the fabric of America. 

Just like Israel we began to do things our own way which is contrary to the instructions given to us and recorded in the Bible. Therefore our sin against THE ALMIGHTY is great and because of that we too have gone into captivity. The difference is this.  We were not removed and taken to the land of Babylon and to King Nebuchanezzer.  No, we voted for Nebuchanezzer to rule over us and our land has become Babylon. 

Ezekiel’s message to Israel is a message that is so appropriate for the people of God in America today. Ezekiel called the covenant people of God to repent.  Likewise, the call for repentance is for those of us that are called by His Name.  We are the ones that are called to be salt and light.  We are the ones called to make this Nation a “shining city set upon a hill.”  Yet, our salt has lost its savor and our light has grown dim.  We the Church of Jesus Christ here in America should have been a force to be reckoned with.  But no, we have compromised and slid down the slippery slope ourselves.

Ezekiel’s message was directed to a demoralized remnant of Judah.  Once again the correlation between Israel and America is staggering. The prophet’s primary message was meant to instill in each individual their personal responsibility in the failure of their nation.  He stressed the importance that each person must recognize their own grievous sin.  Each individual contributes to the weight of sin that brings judgment upon a nation.  Our Nation, I believe has been under judgment for some time now.  The condition of our Nation is due to the failure of every Christian to do what we were called to do. We were called to let our light shine so brightly that it would give glory to our Father who is in heaven.  As a corporate body, we have failed to do that!  We in the body of Christ dare not point our finger and blame another for the condition that our Nation is in.  We must take full responsibility ourselves.  

There is only ONE hope for this nation and that hope is for the people of God to walk away from their sin and return to HIM and HIS RIGHTEOUS WAYS.   For HE and HE alone can heal this land.

The Sins of the Nation

by Rev. Marjorie on 08/06/16

Morality in this country is now being replaced by individual rights.  In my opinion this nation of ours has three major sins that we must repent of or we will continue to be judged by the Almighty.  The trinity of what I call the “sins of replacement” involves first the belief that the Church has replaced Israel.  This sin is contrary to the scriptures and is immoral because it is not the truth… it is based on a lie.  The Church cannot claim rights that truthfully belong to Israel or dismiss Israel saying that God has replaced Israel with the Church when He has not.  God has said that He will bless those that bless Israel and curse those that curse Israel.  We Christians need to stand with Israel and educate in love our brothers and sisters who believe the doctrine of Replacement Theology as being contrary to the Word of God, so that they do not bring curses upon themselves.  We have a loving Father who longs to bless.

The second grievous replacement sin is that of abortion.  We have replaced the morality of protecting life in the womb for the individual rights of the mother to abort her child.  It is a sad commentary when the most dangerous place for a baby is in its Mother’s womb, and it is likewise a sad commentary when women are dangerously forced into abortion because there is a child in her womb.  Again education is the key.  We as Christians can not continue to keep silent, we must find acts of love to do what we can to rescue Mother and Child from this great atrocity.  We have a loving Father who longs to comfort every Mother who grieves over the loss of her child.  Let us help her find His loving arms.

The third sin of replacement is the fact that we in this nation are replacing the definition of marriage as a union between one man and one woman to be replaced and to include it to be a union between two individuals whether they are two males or two females.  Gay marriage as of the date of this writing is recognized in 17 states.  We are accused of hate crimes if we dare to stand against homosexuality.  The truth is that it is hateful not to educate the homosexual community about the consequences of this sin.  We must dare to love them enough to tell them the truth of what is contained in the Word of God.  Homosexuality is not an alternative life style anymore than alcoholism or adultery is an alternative life style.  It is sin.  We have a loving Father who longs to embrace every repentant sinner including the homosexual. Pray for those that you know to be homosexual so they are able to receive the truth and love them enough to inform them of what the Word of God says.

As we look at all three sins we must recognize in each case morality has indeed been replaced with individual rights.  These sins that I call “the trinity of replacement” speaks loud and clear as to what the root of the problem is…As a Nation we have replaced God and the religion of our forefathers who formed this great nation with the religion of “Liberalism”.
