Hello, Beloved of the Lord. My name is Kathleen Maples. I am so thankful you stopped by It's About Him. It seems
like lots of average people have a web site to share their ideas and express their personalities and preferences, so I thought
I would get one to share mine, too. Please note the writings published here are a result of my personal study
time in God's Word with His Holy Spirit helping me understand, and a Hebrew and Greek Dictionary, unless otherwise noted.
Without God's Holy Spirit to teach me, I could never understand what He had written in His Word. I thank Him for His truth.

remove it. He is to be reverenced, and adored... I do not just write about anything, but as I study the
Word of God, and He shows me how it applies to my life, and it helps me to understand better who He is, and how letting
His word have free course in me is necessary. I am not out to help self, because self gets in his way. It has to

more than anything, provoked to follow on to know Him more.
When I consider this question, the only one who comes to
mind is the Lord Jesus Christ. I know I need His power, His divine intervention and control of this life He gifted me with
to be able to overcome and be what He intends and pleases me to be. But the very thought of being before Him, in all His glory,
to look into His beautiful, compassionate eyes, that know so well how flawed I am apart from Him, and still He shows
me such mercy, just to be able to look in His eyes, would take me to my face before Him. The song "I Can Only Imagine" has
always stirred my heart, but I know when I see Him, I will be much too awed by Him to speak or do anything but fall before
Him. I am not worthy to look upon such Holiness, except He grant divine privilege and favor to do so.
I would also like to meet everyone who doesn't know Him,
who needs to know Him, and tell them how absolutely magnificent He is and how wonderful it is to have Him in your life. To
urge any and all who have not to taste and see the Lord HE is GOOD.
However, I would like to say a special thank you to Pastor
BH Clendennen, whose life and relationship with the Lord is one others can draw from and learn from. The Lord used him to
start the School of Christ in Russia 16 years ago, and the wisdom God has given this man regarding the Scriptures and spiritual
things is amazing and we are wise to learn from one who has walked with the Lord closely for the past 57 years. I would also
like to thank the Rev. David Wilkerson, his lovely wife, Gwen Wilkerson, Rev. Carter Conlon, Teresa Conlon, Neil and
Noline Rhodes, and William Carroll, and his wife, and all the ministers, and the Pastoral Staff and congregation
and choir at Times Square Church, New York City and for making their preaching free on their website-almost unheard of in
this day. Although I have never met them, or been privileged to visit New York, their ministry has made a huge impact on my
spiritual life. I remain humbly grateful to the Lord for guiding me to the truth, through the truth and putting it in the
inward parts of this vessel. I am grateful to the Lord for putting me in the Body of Christ which is worldwide; to be
a part of such a precious family and especially those in my home church, I may not say it often, but I love each and every
one of you and value you highly. I cannot single out just one person because to do so does a disservice to the others, all
of which are necessary to the Body of Jesus Christ.
