How do you know it’s from God?

It’s super important to read the bible. We all need answers to our many life questions without going over what scripture says about it. I’m going to go over a few scenarios to demonstrate what I’m trying to prove here.

Is this apartment for me God? It has parking and heat/hot water is included! It’s in a furnished basement which will make it easy to bring in groceries. Its not a registered apartment so there is no lease so that’s a plus.

The Lord tells us to make sure our dealings are legal and honest. Is the apartment from God? I don’t know? All I know is that an unregistered apartment is breaking some type of law. God will always bless our silly choices somehow but maybe, if we waited, there would be something better.

God, this job looks pretty amazing. 65k a year, 401k, medical benefits and incentives. Lord, this has to be for me. All I have to do is process some paperwork, go to the bank and answer phone calls and tell the callers that my boss isn’t here. I’m going to take it.

Is it from God? So you tell the callers the boss isn’t there? Now, what if he is always there and now you find yourself lying everyday.  Like I said, God May bless us, but would it be the best blessing? Imagine if we rejected such an appealing job for our spiritual sake. I’m sure God will give us a better job that pays more.

I love this man. He is charming and cute. He has a car, a great job and has it all together. He says he loves me and is always there when I need him. He’s a man of God and helps me spiritually when I’m down. We hang out all the time but we have to keep it on the low. He’s in the process of getting a divorce and I don’t want us  to effect the judges decision in regards to his kids. Is he from God? Is this my soul mate?

Um, no

Marriage is an eternal bond forever and always. You can fight for a married man and plan a future with him but you’ll find yourself building your foundation on sand. The house may stand during those beautiful, sunny days oh but when that storm comes, you guys WILL drown. To amend to the whole eternal bond thing, the majority of divorced men wish their relationship worked out with their first wife and regret the divorce. Not all not all. Don’t go crazy. Just look out for a faithfully praying ex wife. Then you got a problem.

Reading the bible helps us understand God’s character to determine what is for us and what is not. If God said no to one thing in the bible, that no still applies to us today. God is the same yesterday, today and forever. He’s not a man that lies so when he says something, He means it. Quit playing ignorant and reach out for what’s best for you, even if it means you have to drop something.

Hope this helped


Help me pray that this month my family and I finally move out this basement. This unregistered basement. 😉  hehe


Love like I’m not scared

Today, this sentence hit me. I heard it in a song many many times but today it stuck out the most. “Love like I’m not scared…”

I questioned, how can you be scared to love? Whoa, a bunch of personal scenarios came to mind.

Recently, I promised myself to never have a close friend again. I pledged to make Jesus my only BFF forever and always amen. Although that sounds ideal, it’s not correct to maintain a life in this way. We need friends to sharpen us spiritually. It is good to have a close friend that will correct us when we are wrong in a loving manner.

Because of my bitterness towards the friends I’ve had in the past, I’ve pushed away some amazing people. I’m going to try to live by this phrase and give new friends a chance. Also, I’m going to learn from the old ones. I’m going to love unconditionally. No matter the mistake, or hurt, or issue a good friend may cause to me or others, I’m still going to love and remain a friend.  I’m not going to pretend to keep a civil friendship because we are brothers and sisters in Christ, that’s just a load of fecal matter. Jesus is the first to peep that hypocrisy and I’m not planning on living that way with anyone.

To my enemies, even if I’ve apologized for all my wrong doings towards you and you choose to hate me anyway, I’m still going to love you and think about all the good things we went through together. I’m not going to lie, I may think of some bad stuff. Thank God I have a good friend that loves me with flaws and all – that taught me something useful. “Replace a bad memory with a good one”. So I am.

God tells us to love anyway. Love without being scared of getting hurt. Love knowing that we can or will get hurt and its okay with us. Jesus loved us KNOWING we were going to hurt Him in return. He died on the cross KNOWING we were going to pay no mind to His death. If we are supposed to be like Christ, we should learn to love the same way.

I’m not letting my past experience ruin potential friendships. I’m going to love even if there is a possibility that the friend will abandon me. I’m going to love even if there is a possibility that this person  is going to hurt me. I’m going to love like I’m not scared.

Human Perfection Does Not Exist

You know the 10 commandments right? Let’s recap.

  1. You shall have no other gods before Me.
  2. You shall not make idols.
  3. You shall not take the name of the LORD your God in vain.
  4. Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy.
  5. Honor your father and your mother.
  6. You shall not murder.
  7. You shall not commit adultery.
  8. You shall not steal.
  9. You shall not bear false witness against your neighbor.
  10. You shall not covet

These law given to Moses by God are perfect. They are our guidelines to live a life pleasing to God. Now, ask yourself a question. Are you keeping all of them on a daily basis?

  • Is God the absolute first person in your life? Hehe think twice. Did you skip church one day to be with that boy?
  • Are you worshipping any idols? What’s that in your hand? Oh its a phone? Why won’t you leave that at home for a week or so? Oh you can’t?
  • Did you say OMG today? Did you say, TGIF because Friday you’re going clubbing?
  • What do you do Sundays after church? I’m sure the answer isn’t “I went to another church until 12AM” or “ I prayed all day until I went beddy bye bye”
  • Did you ever talk back to your parents? Yes you did, sit down.
  • Did you ever kill a person? Of course you didn’t good for you. Did you ever kill a person’s dreams or character?
  • Oh my favorite. Did you ever cheat on your spouse? Aww how faithful. How about that chick you were looking at on IG twerking? How about that dude posing in skin tight undies. MCM?
  • Oh good, you’ve never robbed a bank? Praise the Lord Praise the Lord. Go back to welfare and give back all the money you used for food stamps. Does someone need to amend their taxes? That pen you were chewing on, where did you get it? Is that your boyfriend you flirting with on the phone or does he belong to someone else? (this can apply to may commandments but I just want to put it here
  • “KG, what this ‘bearing false witness’?”  Sit down, based on your Instagram, you did it 1hr ago. #gossip
  • “KG, what is this covet?” If you read my very first blog you would know the answer to this but ill tell you. Stop being jealous of that girl that looks cuter than you. The effort you’re making to be like her #copying #extremediet etc. is coveting.

Now that we all agree that no one here is perfect, let’s move on.

Why does God tell us to follow these rules in order to go to Heaven if we obviously can’t keep them? Well, don’t you think God already knows we can’t? This explains the Cross. God sent His son to die so that we can live and go to heaven if we believe in Him. The only reason why God communicates with us even when we don’t follow these laws is because of Jesus. I’m not giving the okay to break the laws no no no. I’m saying that if ever we do, we HAVE to ask for forgiveness to be forgiven forever and for good. I would love to say more about this but the shorter the blog the better. You guys have short attention spans.


Salvation is a gift and its not based on what we do or our spiritual performance. We will fail every day. That’s just a fact. We want to live in LOVE with God and we want to obey Him because we LOVE HIM! And when we fail, we want to get back up and receive this gift of forgiveness and salvation. We need to trust that the Cross is enough to pay for our sins. So, The end



Take Root: Jesus is more than that

As humans, we only seek the verse in the bible that corresponds to our situation. If I am sick, I search for verses about those who were sick and healed. If I am broke, I search for verses that speak of prosperity and seasons of abundance. If I am sad, I seek verses on how the Lord catches my tears in bottles. When I am single, I search for verses that speak of marriage, faith, declaration and, purity.

As devoted Christians, we are making a huge mistake. I’m not saying that it’s bad to look for verses in hopes to overcome our problems, no no. I’m saying that there is more to the life of Jesus than the “specifics”.

I was one that looked for the “specifics”. It brought hope for the moment but I wasn’t well informed of the power of that verse. In order to fully comprehend the potential of that ONE verse, we have to fully comprehend the faith behind it.

The reason for the cross is much higher than the hope for healing. The death on the cross is above and beyond the lack of food in the fridge. The death on the cross tramples on the hope of finally getting a wife and a family. The death on the cross is the reason why we won’t suffer in hell fire for eternity. The death of Jesus is the reason why we have access to the presence of the Holy One to even ASK for a boo. Jesus is the reason why we have communication with the Most High God so we need to be knowin’ lol.

The root of the bible is the life, death and resurrection of Jesus Christ our Lord. If we don’t take interest of this, the “specifics” will go through one ear and come out the other in the moment of distress. You want your garden to flourish? Deepen your root. You want a husband? Well, dig your nose in the word without picking out your interests and see the mighty power of God manifest in that category. Not only will you get your husband, but you’ll keep him. How bout that?

@authkg all day err day. Shout out to my friend JA. You duh bomb.


God is not dumb: You get what you plant

Galatians 6:7 Do not be deceived: God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows.

Galatians 6:7 has proven true in my life. I had the chance to plot destruction many many times but I couldn’t go forward with them. I knew my plans would definitely have an outcome that would please me but I always remembered Gods character when it came to earthly consequences.

There was a point that I didn’t believe in Galatians 6:7. I went around thinking that my actions here on earth didn’t have any consequences. I DON’T believe that the Lord repays us as our sins deserve but I do believe that our actions will come back to us one way or another.

If you dig a hole for someone to fall in, the person who will actually fall in it is you. Proverbs 26:27

I laugh when I look back to those moments when people schemed against me and prospered. At the time, I thought they were super successful. Oh, but today, God has been faithful to His word when He said “God will not be mocked, you reap what you sow”.

When God says “He will not be mocked” He’s saying that we may think we are getting away with it now, but God is going to make sure we know that His word stands clear. We will not get away with it.

I recall one of my schemers flaunting a piece of what had been taken from me. The Lord knew how hurt I was and how badly I wanted to see my schemer tossed down a flight of stairs. BUT, the Lord said, “Be still and know that I am God”. So I did. I prayed, prayed and prayed with no answer in return but I knew an answer would come eventually.

I held in so much anger, I held back so many tears, I held back so many right hooks, I HELD BACK ALL HATRED IN ME! I was held back by the nails that crucified my sins. OH JESUS! I wanted to reap great and wonderful things. If I did what my flesh desired, I wouldn’t have all the great things I have today.

I am living proof that we all reap what we sow. For those who know me and know what I have been through can take that verse to the bank with confidence. I planted lies, deceit, hate, sneakiness and whaaaaaaaaat, people lied, fooled and hated me in return.

It’s a cycle my friends. For those who lied, fooled and hated me will reap the saaaaaaaaame thing. If you stole from someone, be prepared in prayer when someone takes the same thing away from you. If you lied to someone, be prepared that the truth WILL come out eventually. If you are being sneaky, be prepared to get fount out.

That’s just how it is. If you plant sunflowers, you get sunflowers. If you plant rutabagas, you will get rutabagas. If you plant peppers, you are not going to get apples. If you plant apples, you are not going to get bananas.


If you plant robbery, you will get extorted.

If you plant lies, you will get lied to and found out.

So check yourself, before you wreck yourself.


If you plant love, you get loved

If you plant forgiveness, you get forgiven.

If you plant hugs, you get hugs.

If you plant Jesus, you get Jesus.


Not built for guilt: God’s message to me

I’m so grateful that the Lord thinks of me so thoroughly that when I have an internal battle with myself, He quickly shows me a solution. A year ago, I sat at my cubicle in tears feeling so unworthy, guilty, condemned and depressed. My co-workers saw me in tears every day that month that they didn’t question me about it. Yes, I had sinned so horribly that I was reaping what I have sowed, BUT! With every failure, God had a plan. My sin was so deep, but His Grace was so much more.

My sorrow was so bad that I had to go to the bathroom to cry bitterly. I’m talking about crying tears that soaked my face. I’m talking about being so distraught that the next breath was so hard to take. I’m talking about PAIN that felt like it could not be extinguished by anything but death.

Then, one day I read a devotional on guilt.


  • God does not condemn those who are in Christ -Romans 8:1
  • We are not built for guilt
  • We are made whole by the sacrifice of Jesus
  • Guilt has no legal right in our lives because Jesus paid for our sin and misdeeds.
  • When we feel guilty, we need to send it back from where it came from. Hell.

While reading these facts, you’d figure I was all good… It didn’t work.

I took the next step and I prayed for myself. I laid hands over my own head and asked God to tell me something. I felt like I was going nowhere in my spiritual life and I couldn’t accept Gods Grace to rid of my guilt.

One night I went to sleep and then, God spoke to me.

He told me 3 very important things that I needed to hear.

  1. You are on the right track. Keep doing what you are doing. Keep seeking my face and don’t give up. Im happy with you. I love you.
  2. You will hear something today at 9 oclock
  3. You are always late to work, church, everything but ill speak to you about that later.

I woke up and I think I wrote all this down.

I didn’t know if God was talking about 9am or 9pm but I knew something was going to happen.

9 am came and nothing. I’m like okay, I guess its 9pm.

I went to church that night and the preaching began. I WAS SO BORED!!! I’m like, “C’mon, I doubt this person has anything to do with this 9 o’clock thing. I have no idea what she is talking about.” So then I opened my bible to read it because I didn’t want to waste my precious time at church learning nothing.

8:59PM– I opened my bible expecting nothing. Turned to a random page and started reading

9:00 PM– Mark 15:25- It was nine o’clock in the morning when they nailed Jesus to the cross.

After so many tears of sorrow, I cried tears of JOY!
God was telling me that I did not have to worry about my sin ANYMORE! Jesus was crucified and he died to wash my sins away. If I remember my sin one more time to condemn myself, then Jesus’ death on the cross was meaningless.

How amazing is this? At 9pm I read about Jesus’ death that occurred at 9am!

God understands that sometimes, WE don’t understand. Have faith, God will help you. His salvation for us is not a mystery. We don’t need to read between the lines about His death on the cross. Don’t get so complicated. Jesus died, and if we believe, we are saved. Nothing more and nothing less. John 3:16

God still didn’t speak to me about being late all the time though. And I’m always late, STILL. Oh God have mercy!

I DON’T KNOW WHAT TO DO! Seek, you shall find.

A friend asked me a question about a tough situation she is going through. When she explained the details, I couldn’t give her a definite answer. The question was obviously very spiritual and personal that I was afraid to say the wrong thing. I was afraid because I really didn’t know what God favored in her circumstance. All I could say was (in simple words) “If you want to know the answer, just dedicate a fasting that focuses on an answer. Perhaps God can answer you in a dream, or vision.” Sometimes, we go through situations where the answer to the problem isn’t clear. In our eyes, both sides are agreeable in their own way. In our eyes, there is no sin between two paths that leads to the end. Sometimes, we really just don’t know what to do.

I remember once being in that same situation. I was desperate to know what a loved one was doing behind my back and deep down I knew the answer but I didn’t have enough proof to back it up. The signs were here and there and every time I asked someone to confirm my suspicion, they couldn’t conquer. The situation broke me to pieces.

Everything was so confusing. It was eating me inside like a parasite sucking up all life the in me. Then one night I went to church and the pastor prayed a specific prayer for those who are seeking revelation. She asked for it to be revealed in a dream for those who really needed it. I was like “HEY! I RECEIVE THAT PRAYER, GIMMIE DAT”

After service, I went home, shut off life and turned on prayer. I made coffee strong enough to keep me up for days. I read the bible, I listened to preaching after preaching, I took notes…ugh, I did everything I knew I could do to get that connection with the Lord. THEN, the main character in my dilemma called me. My suspicion grew with that phone call but again, it wasn’t conclusive.

After a few hours of being in God’s presence, I finally went to sleep…

I had a vivid dream about my situation. My dream covered the emotions, intentions, motives, desires and outcomes of all parties involved in this drama. At the end, God told me to pray for that person. Oh how I didn’t want to.

My prayer was:

“Dear God, I DON’T LIKE THIS PERSON. THIS PERSON MAKES MY BLOOD BOIL AND EVAPORATE IN THE AIR FORMING A CONDENCED DARK CLOUD ABOVE MY HEAD THAT I CANNOT SHOO AWAY! But…You, my LORD are telling me to pray, and so I am. LOOOOOOORRRRRRD! Do what you have to do in that person because I really can’t deal with it. Please help me be still and know that YOU are God and I am NOT!”

At the end, the dream finally confirmed to me that I was going to have the victory and much much more.

I believe that if we show the Lord how much we need something from Him, He will answer faithfully. How do we show Him how badly we need something? Well, we give Him the only thing we have to offer: praise, 100% of our effort, sacrifice and our time. It works, I’ve witnessed it. So, do it too

The Capo Factor: Christian Authenticity

My maiden name is Kenia Capo meaning “Abode of God and a leader.”

Who am I?

I am 24 years of age, married, with 2 kids. I work full-time and I spend the rest of the day with my family.

Now, ill get detailed, short and to the point.

I am too young for the life I live but I love it.

I’ve been through the toughest storms one can imagine and through that storm; I became who I am today.

I defend those who have fallen

I take time for those who are weak.

I am extremely outspoken for Christ and NOONE intimidates me. (Except my supervisor Noah) I really don’t know why.

Its not that I’m trying to be tough, I just am. It’s wired in.

I don’t tolerate people who enjoy making others feel inferior.

I don’t tolerate persecution of those who sin

I don’t believe in salvation based on human works

I believe Jesus was crucified for our sins, died and, resurrected on the 3rd day.

I believe the cross is enough, period, point blank period period.

I’m sure people stalk all my blogs, social networks, FB, to see if I wrote badly about them. (I don’t know this for a fact so please don’t you worry. Keep peepin’. You might learn something) if they wanted a decent shout out, they should have treated me better.

This is my story and I own it.

My blog is about my experiences and what the word of God has to say about it.

I’m not here to pretend I’m holy holy holy because I am far from it without Jesus.

I am here to represent CHRISTIAN AUTHENTICITY.

Authenticity:  of undisputed origin; genuine.

I am real, not pretending to be someone I’m not.

I get angry,

I talk back with an attitude sometimes.

I’ve gossiped

I think highly of myself

I broke commandments

I’ve lied

I know my position with the Lord and I seek Him daily for Grace and forgiveness because I AM ROTTEN. I am nothing without Him and it is because of Him that I stand to witness and testify for His Glory. PRAISE GOD!

If you read my “about me” post and cringed wondering if you should read a blog from such a sinner like me, click that little X on the corner of this window and go along your merrily way of being self-righteous.

For those who can admit their flaws and need to know solutions to every rotten sin in their life, read on my brother and sisters of Christ.

The Lord remembers that we are…dust.


Be an example: Lost and Found

Luke 15:24: for this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.’ So they began to celebrate.

Lord, thank you for this passion you have planted in my heart to write about your Holy Word. Thank you for the storms that passed in my life. It was then that I was able to feel your presence first hand. My words are not only through scripture but through experience. I am thankful that I am no longer blind to your love. Your love for me is as clear is day.

I love this parable to pieces. It’s pretty much about a younger brother who decided to take his inheritance early and splurge on sinful desires. He spent all of his inheritance and was left with no money. Then he got so hungry he wanted to eat what the pigs were eating. The younger brother then realized that he messed up. He realized he was wrong and needed to go back to daddy’s house and ask for forgiveness. He also needed daddy to let him come back home. Immediately daddy received his son and celebrated.

My oh so favorite part of this parable is the bad attitude the older brother seemed to have when his younger brother came home. Okay it’s understandable; the older brother didn’t sin against his father. He never asked for his inheritance early and he never took it upon himself to live a sinful life like his younger brother did. The older brother seemed to be the good, responsible dude in the house, but why was he so nasty about the celebration of his own little brother coming home?

There are so many “older brothers” in today’s church. We watch our younger brother’s sin carelessly and we simply can care less. We watch our younger brothers destroy themselves and scoff within waiting for the day of their destruction. We say “maybe they’ll learn their lesson” . SHAME ON US!

As you can see in this parable, daddy RAN to his younger son! His son didn’t run to his dad, he didn’t have to. Why?

When we mess up, God wants nothing more than for us to tell Him our sin so that we can be forgiven. The problem here is that there are way too many “older brothers” that make sinners feel like we don’t deserve Daddy’s love. We are sinners correct? Why would Daddy want to forgive me if my older brother is so much better than I am? Look at my older brother laughing at me making fun of me; imagine how hysterical I may look to Daddy. My older brother doesn’t even acknowledge that I’m home and that I’m sorry, imagine my own Daddy.

Leaders, please understand that you have little eyes looking up to you. There are people who have no idea how to live a Christian life and look up to you as an example. Leaders, please understand that everyone is a sinner. It took you time to develop to become a leader and it will take time for our new believers as well. We need to be loving, compassionate, and understanding. We need to respect them and keep private what they choose to disclose to us. We need to be open and transparent. We need to be an example of how The Lord will treat us when we approach Him with our sin.

We are making big mistakes as leaders. We are pushing our little brothers away instead of reeling them in. Let’s be like Daddy and receive everyone with open arms no matter the size of the sin. When our sheep run away and choose to come back, let’s hug them and say,

“Let’s have a feast and celebrate. For this brother of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.”

Components to Christian Authenticity

Personal integrity- doing the right thing, in the right way, for the right reason.

Lord, thank you for this day. Thank you for the job you have blessed me with. I am able to listen to sermon after sermon while I work and that is just GREAT! Thank you for giving me the desire to learn more and more about you. I LOVE YOU!

Well would you look at that! Christian Authenticity! That’s the name of my blog. That’s right, AUTHKG. Authentic KG! Why am I so attracted to the word AUTHENTIC? Well, it seems that nowadays, it’s all about putting a FRONT; an image of what we believe is the correct way to “act” like a Christian. In the end, we look foolish and ultimately push people away from Christ. What we do is remind unbelievers why they don’t come to church in the first place.

What is it that attracts people to church? What do we do that pushes unbelievers away? Wait!

How do we become authentic Christians?


Integrity means doing the right thing, the right way, for the right reasons.

There are 4 key components to authentic Christian living

  1. Doing the right thing

Psalm 19:8

8 The precepts (rules) of the Lord are right, giving joy to the heart. The commands of the Lord are radiant, giving light to the eyes.

We attract people by showing an example of what God expects from us. Unbelievers appreciate honesty, kindness and, true love. We push people away by openly lying and gossiping about our fellow brothers and sister in Christ. People attend church to be free from drama and we show them that we Christians are no different.

  1. Doing things the right way

2 Corinthians 8:20

20 We want to avoid any criticism of the way we administer this liberal gift.

So, Paul (bible dude), visited the churches that he himself built to ask for money for the poor. They could have given him the money and he would have been on his way but he decided to bring witnesses with him from each church. He wanted to “administer the gift” THE RIGHT WAY in man’s eyes. This is an important key component to integrity. As Christians, we MUST care about how people see the things we do. When we make an effort to “do things the right way” we attract those who are used to seeing people who deliberately…”DO THINGS THE WRONG WAY!”

  1. Do things for the right reason

Matthew 6:1

1 “Be careful not to practice your righteousness in front of others to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven.

Okay! Okay! You gave a 100 dollar bill for your offering in church. Okay! Okay! You cleaned the church bathroom. OKAY! OKAY! OKAY! You gave that homeless man McDonald’s for breakfast. Well Guess what?! You get zero reward from God for announcing your “righteousness” to the world over and over again. People who have this habit tend to push me away…from their presence. It’s good to keep quiet the good things you do for the Lord.  It proves that you actually did it for Him and not for people.

  1. Make it right when you got it wrong

Matthew 5:23-24

23 “Therefore, if you are offering your gift at the altar and there remember that your brother or sister has something against you, 24 leave your gift there in front of the altar. First go and be reconciled to them; then come and offer your gift.

We could never get it right all the time when it comes to our relationships with others. To have integrity is to make things right with those we have something against. The Lord basically says that we might as well not go to church if we have something against someone. Our job as Christians is to prove that Satan has no stronghold against us. Our job as Christians is to prove that the Holy Spirit is so powerful in our lives that we approach the people we have issues with and SQUASH THE BEEF! There is no prosperity when there is beef. That should answer many of your questions.


Not many people have it.
