“God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth.” John 4:24
Dearly beloved in Christ,
Shalom, shalom to all who hear! For the LORD speaks peace to His people. Grace and glory He bestows and He withholds nothing good from those who walk uprightly. Psalm 84:11.

Meeting ID: 860 1804 1940
As we gather to share God’s Word in Spirit and Truth let us enter into the flow that is prayer where we walk in oneness with our God in openness of heart to who the other one is. And in this meeting, we shall explore prayer in a new light to cross that dividing line we hold between ourselves and God to enter into the best time of our lives.
God’s power can only flow into a worshipper. Worship in Spirit and in truth is the most important aspect of your life. It is through the channel of worship that grace flows in and grace is supply in abundance of all that is needed at that moment. Grace to help in time of need. Hebrews 4:16. It is divine life in you, and that is the power to heal, multiply provisions, bring in harvest, the BLESSING, and supply all sufficiency and an abundance for every good work. It is resurrection power and that brings new beginnings.
What is worship? It is being one with God in an intense desire to honor and exalt the goodness you experience in His love, for He is love. It is valuing God for who He is and lifting your heart to embrace and lift up that goodness in reverence and awe. And as Jesus told the Samaritan woman at the well, worship is not restricted to a time or place, it is a continuous connection with God wherever you are, leaping up as a spring of living water within you unto eternal life.
WORSHIP IS A CONTINUOUS FLOW OF LOVE AND HONOR BETWEEN YOU AND GOD WHERE EACH VALUES THE OTHER AND EACH FINDS THE OTHER PRECIOUS.
And it brings all His goodness into your life and all your goodness into His life. It makes you One. Worship is two ways. It is not just from you to God. People believe worship is primarily their praise going up to God, but in reality, it is primarily His giving His life into your open heart and bringing you into His glory as you lift all you are up into His Light. For you were formerly darkness but now you are light in the LORD—you who have embraced Jesus as Lord—so you now walk in the light of His love. And your life produces the fruit of Light in all goodness and righteousness and truth. Ephesians 5:8-10. In the Light you have fellowship with the Father, and the blood of Jesus continually cleanses you of all sin. 1 John 1:7.
You flow with the Father through the perfect connection of Jesus. Jesus reconciled man to God by His death and resurrection. He brings man to the level of God and brings God to the level of man, for in Jesus Christ God and Man become one in the divine person of the Son. So that everything comes from the Father to you through Jesus so that it fits into your humanity without rendering you asunder at the weight of the glory, and everything goes back from you to God through Jesus to be filtered pure, holy, and sanctified before returned and received. God gave Jesus to you that you might live your life THROUGH Him. 1 John 4:9.
We have an exciting announcement for you! We are having a spiritual service of teaching and worship at the historic Holy Ghost Chapel and Pavilion located at 1774 Puowaina Drive, Honolulu, Hawaii 96813, on Saturday, October 3, 2020, which is the joyful feast (moed—appointed time) of Tabernacles from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm, but please arrive by 8:30 am so we can start the teachings right at 9:00 am. Thus far, due to the Covid-19 restrictions in place until September 23, 2020, we are limiting seating to 44 which enables full social distancing. And the Pavilion, which is a most wonderful place for Feast of Tabernacles, nestled next to the Church itself, though a permanent structure, is considered to be outdoors due to its open sides and front, giving us further compliance with the current orders. We will supply fruit, individual bags of chips, and other snacks packaged separately as well as coffee, tea, and water. We ask each of you who attend to bring your own sandwiches or other food for lunch. Due to the restrictions currently in place we are not permitted to have buffet or platters.
I will email out an invitation on this with more details about this awesome project. The Chapel, built in 1927, and the pavilion and other buildings, which are the property of the Brotherhood of the Holy Ghost of the Holy Trinity, a community who came to Hawaii from Portual in 1891, were in sad desrepair but our Marana tha Ministries has joined forces with Evelyn Starkey, the gracious President of the Brotherhood of the Holy Ghosts of the Holy Trinity, and our Marana tha Ministries volunteer team under our wonderful leader and construction expert Kapono Hamilton, who is a licensed contractor with his own company, cleaned, repaired and painted three buildings (Pavilion, kitchen and offices) and the next project is the Chapel itself. Come join our team in the work to raise up this tabernacle of praise as a beacon light of revival and awakening in the darkness in this world!

Be sure you are saying Psalm 91 every day and that you are shouting to God with the voice of thanksgiving for all His promises to come to pass in your life!
The LORD bless you and keep you! The LORD make His Face shine on you and give you His grace! The LORD smile upon you and give you SHALOM! Shalom, shalom, shalom!
Peace and joy to you,
