In my mind, God is still writing Hebrews 11. The trials of our faith affecting our brothers and sisters in Jesus today are no less than those mentioned in Scripture. The testimony of the Faithful today is as inspiring as the testimony of the Faithful in the Bible. Not only does this testimony bring glory to our Creator, our attitude towards those exercised thereby is of great importance to our Father. May we internalize the benefits of the sufferings of the Saints. May our hearts bleed with them in their sore trials that we, together with them, might share in the sufferings of Christ. If we suffer with Him we will also be glorified with Him.

Brother Ken and all involved,
Know that you have the opportunity to greatly enhance the Kingdom of God as you humbly and boldly stand on the rock Jesus Christ.
Many people are praying for you. Our prayer is;
As you endure reproach for His sake your joy might be full.
Your faith will be steadfast in the midst of a confused world that stands in opposition to the commandments of our Creator.
Many souls will be touched and changed through your testimony.

Ken, God bless you for being faithful. As true as God is, so sure is His judgments to man. Im made to think of Jesus words, "Father forgive them for they know not what they do".

Lighthouse Trails has been praying for everyone involved in this situation for nearly seven years. We are advocates for protecting children. May Isabella walk closely with Jesus as she grows into a young woman, and may God give the Kenneth Miller family peace and comfort during this time apart from each other.

Your incarceration and recent events in Nicaragua with Timo's case are a reminder of the cost of discipleship. Thank you for being an "example of the believers"!

Hi Pastor Ken,
Thank you for writing and for continuing to look to our Lord Jesus Christ for daily grace and peace. I thank God for how you are encouraging me through your writing.
I am praying that the words from Isaiah 11:2 about Jesus will be your experience as you prepare for testimony ahead.
"The Spirit of the Lord shall rest upon Him, the Spirit of wisdom and understanding, the Spirit of counsel and might, the Spirit of knowledge and of the fear of the Lord."
I'm also praying 2 Timothy 1:7 for you, that the Holy Spirit will equip you in a special way with "power, love, and a sound mind."
We love you in Christ.

Ken is having a sabbatical:
Sabbatical or a sabbatical (from Latin: sabbaticus, from Greek: sabbatikos (σαββατικός), from Hebrew: shabbat (שבת) (i.e., Sabbath), literally a "ceasing") is a rest from work, or a break, often lasting from two months to a year. The concept of sabbatical has a source in shmita, described in several places in the Bible. For example, in Leviticus 25, there is a commandment to desist from working the fields during the seventh year. Strictly speaking, this means a sabbatical would last one year.

Joy...Joy...Joy...is what is filling my heart, Ken, as I read your posts here.
Praying with everyone else, as we watch the beauty of what God is doing in each one of us...and yes, even in this circumstance!
The blessing I got by reading here...the smiles...chuckles...and even tears...are overwhelming me, this morning.
Oh how special to envision my other Brothers in Christ there with you...I'm just overwhelmed again by God's 'working all things together for good'... Here, my dear Brother is a 'cyber hug' from over the air ways :)
Love and Prayers in Christ our Lord!

Our family has thought your way many times today.We are praying with commitment for you. Our hearts smile when we realize how very much you are here with this special day. Your love, care and direction for your daughter is evident and that is a gift that some daughters cannot experience when a physical presence is granted. The investment you have placed in caring for your family, loving your wife well offers a presence that physical absence cannot take away. What a gift! Thinking of you so much today. We care and love you. Earl and Angie

Dear Ken:Amy Carmichael, a missionary without leave for 40 years in India, came to the realization that every trial, sorrow, disappointment, and reverse in her life was actually an opportunity to die to self; instead of an obstacle, each one should be viewed as an opportunity to glorify God. That's a tough message, but I would commend you on having obviously grasped the principle in your circumstances and truly glorified God by your Christlike response. Thank you; God bless you.

We pray for you every day for Holy Sprit protection. Many don't realize it, but the only thing that the child of God is promised in the Bible is Persecution. We are in a wicked world that is not a friend to the true Christian. Thanks for setting a true example for us.

Brother Ken: Thank you so much for writing about your experiences on the inside! You are learning and growing so greatly from this event of imprisonment, that you will never be the same person afterward, had you not gone through this change in lifestyle. I know, it happened to me also, which may explain why I find great joy and some spiritual fellowship since being released from prison by living among the homeless people in American society. God will provide for you both in your present circumstance and in the future, cast your cares upon Him for His yoke is indeed easy and His burden light, compared to that of living in the sinful decadence of today's world! May the Lord continue to be blessed by your testimony as your eyes are opened to the true meaning of what a life of obedience to God's Word requires of us!

Becoming a prisoner of Christ Jesus [Philemon 1:1] is both an awesome responsibility and a blessing [2 Peter 2:20-23]. Praise God, His Word is not chained [2 Timothy 2:8,9]! The LORD promises that those who honour Him will be honoured [1 Samuel 2:30]. May God sustain our brother and his family by His grace. May God continue to hold Sister Lisa and her daughter under the His wings [Psalm 91:4].

Although we are catholics, my mother and me got very shaked when we knew about your case. The only thing I can say is that we are convinced about you are a modern hero, now our societies are totally mad!, our countries are becoming into real dictatorships. For thesse reason, in this dark times, people like you is very necessary.
We'll pray for you a lot. May our Lord Jesus give you the strength you need.

Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed;
Whatever comes your way, remember that GOD'S GRACE IS SUFFUCIENT!

Bro. Ken. As I observe your life and testimony, I can't help but think about the words of Jesus, who said, "Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely for my sake. Rejoice and be exceeding glad! For GREAT is your reward in heaven! For so persecuted they the prophets which were before you."
May God bless and fill you with the peace that passes all comprehension.
Our prayers are with you and your family.

Ken and Family: My heart is with you. I came to Milmont today, but found myself breaking out in tears. I kept thinking, "Ken is in prison for doing the right thing!" I have always fled TO Milmont when the outside world seemed harsh. Today, it seemed that the world came to Milmont to take some of the goodness away. You are in my prayers daily and have been since this all started. I know that God can and will create something good out of every situation, so that is my prayer--that your time away from your family can be used to bring glory to the Lord. Your strength and unwavering faith has been a blessing to me.

I don't know how to say this, but you have an *** opportunity, brother Ken, to proclaim God's message to the world! People all around the globe are reading, watching, praying, and you aren't even in prison yet. As a church we are praying that you will remain strong in the grace of God, and that you can be a light house in a dark world. May the Spirit of God empower you to respond in a Christ-like spirit to all that Satan will hurl at you in the coming years! Our God is on the throne. We are on the winning team. Your family's faith and courage are truly outstanding. May God bless you ever so richly!

Thank you for following God rather than man. Let us know where Ken serves and I for one will write. I have never been in prison, but was a chaplain for Indiana Dept of Corrections ( I am a General Baptist pastor). With good time Ken should be out before his sentence time is complete. Check federal regs to get the exact time. Minimum security is not bad time. Oh for sure nobody chooses incarceration, but you will come to understand what I mean. Ken and the Miller family are in my prayers. From the apostles, to the Underground Railroad, to the American Civil Rights Movement the righteous have goon to prison. There is a mom and a little girl who thank you as well as the entire Bible believing Church. Keep the faith. Philippians 4: 13.

Dear brother, I have just read for the first time about Lisa Miller and how your life has come under pressure. Human "justice" wants to state an example by putting God's servant in jail. And God might want to state an example by letting his just servant go to jail to be a radiant, incontestable testimony of Christ there and over media, at a greater scale than ever before. May the Lord strengthen you and your family in these days, to experience even more of Him, to get even closer, to have God-given words and reactions in every situation. "Jesus answered: “My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world, my servants would have been fighting, that I might not be delivered over to the Jews. But my kingdom is not from the world.”

Hi Brother Ken,
We are so sorry to learn that the future appears to include time spent in prison. But your positive attitude in this situation is extremely encouraging. We believe that Romans 8:28-29 will continue to be true of your life in the days ahead. Here at Bethel Mennonite we will continue to pray for you and for your family.

You have been in my prayers for years and will continue to be. May Our Lord give you and your family strength of faith, peace in suffering.

I can only wonder how closely the gov't is watching all of us who comment here or contact Ken. The reason is that on Dec. 14th I wrote to info at millercase dot org and asked about the appellate decision. I received a reply the same day from Darrell Hershberger who wrote to me in an email: "we are still waiting". So on the 16th, two days later, he is no longer waiting, he gets the news, according the post on your update page. Anyway, I certainly appreciate the spiritual viewpoints expressed here, there is no sense of retaliation or hatred by Ken or anyone, as it ought to be for followers of Jesus. Likewise, we ought to pray for those in gov't, who no doubt honestly feel they are simply doing their job when prosecuting someone such as Ken, or those who are selling raw milk, or medicinal products, or driving buggies without the orange triangle safety device, etc. So much prosecution of those who simply wish to serve the Creator of Heaven and Earth, maybe it is time to seek a different land where religious freedom may be lived out? If you know of such, please contact me. Till them Gott selig dich als.
Saturday, 06 February 2016 13:29
Greetings, Brother Ken & Family,
I don't know you personally but some of my brothers have met various ones of your family and I've followed this closely over the last several years. May the Lord continue to sustain you and hold you in the palm of His hand as He leads you ever onward and upward. I was blessed by what Ken wrote about trials. May God find each of us to be soft clay in His hands that He might conform us more into His likeness by the things He allows in each of our lives! Satan desires to destroy us, but trials are allowed by God to make us - make us more like Him so the we might bring Him glory and honor! Keep your eyes on Jesus! He always faithful will remain!
God bless you!
You are in my thoughts and prayers. Stand strong to the end!

I read this verse the same day I learned of your sentencing:
Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him. James 1:12

After all of this...We have read the 'back of the Book' and we KNOW who wins! May even this be for HIS HONOR..HIS GLORY..and for changed eternities in the lives of many. Continued love and prayers..
Thursday, 04 February 2016 07:06
Brother Ken and family, we will continually lift you up to our Great King who's Kingdom has come--which Kingdom we present to the world. Your testimony has been strengthening to us. We bow our will, together with you, to the will of our dear Father. And through this bowing, we trust God will do His great work behind the scenes of redeeming mankind back to Himself. God bless you richly!

To the Rainbow Alliance, and maybe others who do not agree with Ken, we want you to know Peace. And we are jealous for your happiness.
I don't know Ken, but if he follows Christ's teaching, I have confidence he would rather have you in a frame of mind to receive Truth while he is in prison, than for him to be a free man, and his perceived legacy to stand between you and true peace.
To Ken, God bless you. There are eternal, unchanging Laws, and there are temporary laws.
God made the one.
Man makes the other.
Thank you for honoring the First law.
We can see from history, and from the Bible, the greater good results when Mans law follows Gods' law.
Right now in USA and beyond, man seems to be in a hurry to prove he is a poor Master of his own fate.
We do not "judge" others; we all take our turns revealing our incapability to judge ourselves.
If there is anything we distant members can do for you or your dissenters, we will be glad to pitch in and help.
To the Family, we have no words but an understanding of the Everlasting Arms!

Tuesday, 02 February 2016 23:53
Hi we just got the message of your sentence.
Keep your courage up, all of you! As a girl, my Daddy was gone on church work a lot, and I can only imagine the struggles the children will have. Esp. if Dad can't be at daughter's wedding...
But while weeping may endure for a night, joy cometh in the morning!

Dear Brother Ken,
Our thoughts and prayers have been much toward you and your family in the past few weeks, that God would give you grace and wisdom in the decisions and trials you face. While it is not entirely possible to fully identify with every question you may face, we respect your choices trusting that God will be glorified as you commit yourself to Him. As we acknowledge Him, He directs our path. So many unknowns lie before us, but knowing our God in those unknowns is Life Eternal.
I was impressed recently again from Ps. 34 and Ps. 37- how that those who call on the Lord will face many distressing situations in life, but will be brought through those situations experiencing God's unfailing faithfulness.
Jesus Christ is indeed in every situation the all-sufficient one who is our wisdom, righteousness, sanctification, and redemption. We need but abide in Him. I just want to encourage you to rest in the Love which naught can separate us from as you take each step into the future.

God Is a Safe Refuge in Trial
A life without trials, affliction, and hardships would be a life of shallow nothingness, and what many people may term as a life of ease.
There are many great masterpieces that have been made by various people, but in every case, whatever was being formed or created had to go through extensive pain, chiselling, cutting, and/or fire to come to perfection and usefulness.
Jesus promised that to follow Him would not be an easy road, but rather a very difficult one. He told us we would have persecution, sorrow, rejection, false accusations, betrayal, and many other things that would not be pleasant according to the flesh. In light of all the potential suffering His children may experience, He also assures them of His presence, love, and grace to accompany them in every situation. He offered Himself as a resting place for all who carry heavy loads and grim experiences. The safe resting place Christ has provided for us is at His bosom of love where we can always resort to no matter what we may be going through. He has suffered all these things before us so therefore is equipped to walk through it as a knowledgeable guide.
The trials and hurts God allows in our experiences are essential ingredients that He uses to build Christ-like character within us. It is up to each individual to give Him the green light to unrestricted access in their lives so He can work His perfect work through these hardships.
Pain and trials need not be viewed with fear and abhorrence, but rather as being much more precious than gold in the fire, being purified. Jesus also suffered for us, leaving an example that we should follow His steps.
A life without trials, pain, and afflictions is one that has not been subjected to very much shaping and preparation for usable service. When we are worn and in suffering, that is when the strength of God becomes evident and shines through with nothing of our human nature to restrict it.

1Tim 1:1 Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by command of God our Savior and of Christ Jesus our hope, 1Tim 1:2 To Timothy, my true child in the faith: Grace, mercy, and peace from God the Father and Christ Jesus our Lord. 1Tim 1:3 As I urged you when I was going to Macedonia, remain at Ephesus so that you may charge certain persons not to teach any different doctrine, 1Tim 1:4 nor to devote themselves to myths and endless genealogies, which promote speculations rather than the stewardship from God that is by faith. 1Tim 1:5 The aim of our charge is love that issues from a pure heart and a good conscience and a sincere faith. 1Tim 1:6 Certain persons, by swerving from these, have wandered away into vain discussion, 1Tim 1:7 desiring to be teachers of the law, without understanding either what they are saying or the things about which they make confident assertions. 1Tim 1:8 Now we know that the law is good, if one uses it lawfully, 1Tim 1:9 understanding this, that the law is not laid down for the just but for the lawless and disobedient, for the ungodly and sinners, for the unholy and profane, for those who strike their fathers and mothers, for murderers, 1Tim 1:10 the ***ually immoral, men who practice ******uality, enslavers, liars, perjurers, and whatever else is contrary to sound doctrine, 1Tim 1:11 in accordance with the gospel of the glory of the blessed God with which I have been entrusted. 1Tim 1:12 I thank him who has given me strength, Christ Jesus our Lord, because he judged me faithful, appointing me to his service, 1Tim 1:13 though formerly I was a blasphemer, persecutor, and insolent opponent. But I received mercy because I had acted ignorantly in unbelief, 1Tim 1:14 and the grace of our Lord overflowed for me with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus. 1Tim 1:15 The saying is trustworthy and deserving of full acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the foremost. 1Tim 1:16 But I received mercy for this reason, that in me, as the foremost, Jesus Christ might display his perfect patience as an example to those who were to believe in him for eternal life. 1Tim 1:17 To the King of the ages, im***l, invisible, the only God, be honor and glory forever and ever. Amen. 1Tim 1:18 This charge I entrust to you, Timothy, my child, in accordance with the prophecies previously made about you, that by them you may wage the good warfare, 1Tim 1:19 holding faith and a good conscience. By rejecting this, some have made shipwreck of their faith, 1Tim 1:20 among whom are Hymenaeus and Alexander, whom I have handed over to Satan that they may learn not to blaspheme.

Mat 24:1 And Jesus went out, and departed from the temple: and his disciples came to him for to shew him the buildings of the temple. Mat 24:2 And Jesus said unto them, See ye not all these things? verily I say unto you, There shall not be left here one stone upon another, that shall not be thrown down. Mat 24:3 And as he sat upon the mount of Olives, the disciples came unto him privately, saying, Tell us, when shall these things be? and what shall be the sign of thy coming, and of the end of the world? Mat 24:4 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you. Mat 24:5 For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many. Mat 24:6 And ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars: see that ye be not troubled: for all these things must come to pass, but the end is not yet. Mat 24:7 For nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: and there shall be famines, and pestilences, and earthquakes, in divers places. Mat 24:8 All these are the beginning of sorrows. Mat 24:9 Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake. Mat 24:10 And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another. Mat 24:11 And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. Mat 24:12 And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. Mat 24:13 But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. Mat 24:14 And this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in all the world for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come. Mat 24:15 When ye therefore shall see the abomination of desolation, spoken of by Daniel the prophet, stand in the holy place, (whoso readeth, let him understand:) Mat 24:16 Then let them which be in Judaea flee into the mountains: Mat 24:17 Let him which is on the housetop not come down to take any thing out of his house: Mat 24:18 Neither let him which is in the field return back to take his clothes. Mat 24:19 And woe unto them that are with child, and to them that give suck in those days! Mat 24:20 But pray ye that your flight be not in the winter, neither on the sabbath day: Mat 24:21 For then shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. Mat 24:22 And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened. Mat 24:23 Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not. Mat 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect. Mat 24:25 Behold, I have told you before. Mat 24:26 Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert; go not forth: behold, he is in the secret chambers; believe it not. Mat 24:27 For as the lightning cometh out of the east, and shineth even unto the west; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. Mat 24:28 For wheresoever the carcase is, there will the eagles be gathered together. Mat 24:29 Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: Mat 24:30 And then shall appear the sign of the Son of man in heaven: and then shall all the tribes of the earth mourn, and they shall see the Son of man coming in the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. Mat 24:31 And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. Mat 24:32 Now learn a parable of the fig tree; When his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer is nigh: Mat 24:33 So likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, even at the doors. Mat 24:34 Verily I say unto you, This generation shall not pass, till all these things be fulfilled. Mat 24:35 Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words shall not pass away. Mat 24:36 But of that day and hour knoweth no man, no, not the angels of heaven, but my Father only. Mat 24:37 But as the days of Noe were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. Mat 24:38 For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, Mat 24:39 And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. Mat 24:40 Then shall two be in the field; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Mat 24:41 Two women shall be grinding at the mill; the one shall be taken, and the other left. Mat 24:42 Watch therefore: for ye know not what hour your Lord doth come. Mat 24:43 But know this, that if the goodman of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched, and would not have suffered his house to be broken up. Mat 24:44 Therefore be ye also ready: for in such an hour as ye think not the Son of man cometh. Mat 24:45 Who then is a faithful and wise servant, whom his lord hath made ruler over his household, to give them meat in due season? Mat 24:46 Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing. Mat 24:47 Verily I say unto you, That he shall make him ruler over all his goods. Mat 24:48 But and if that evil servant shall say in his heart, My lord delayeth his coming; Mat 24:49 And shall begin to smite his fellowservants, and to eat and drink with the drunken; Mat 24:50 The lord of that servant shall come in a day when he looketh not for him, and in an hour that he is not aware of, Mat 24:51 And shall cut him asunder, and appoint him his portion with the hypocrites: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth.
