The Lord has been speaking to me lately about a not so very popular subject… suffering. God is preparing His people for the tribulation that is coming into this world – a time that will bring with it much suffering for those who are faithfully following Jesus Christ. Yet Jesus tells us, even in this, we are to take heart for He has overcome the world. (John 16:33)

As a Believer, the Lord wants you to be encouraged. He wants you to remember that even in times of suffering, you have reasons to rejoice for it is written that we should “glory in tribulations, knowing that tribulation produces perseverance; and perseverance, character; and character, hope.” Romans 5:3-4 

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to His great mercy, He has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ. (1 Peter 1:3)

God’s word prepares us for and warns us of what is to come. It clearly informs us that all who desire to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted. Therefore, we should not be surprised when a fiery trial comes to test us. We should not act as if something strange is happening. God’s word further tells us that when we are persecuted on account of Jesus, we are considered blessed for this is evidence that the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon us. This is not the same kind of suffering that befalls us as the result of sin, such as murder or adultery. The suffering we encounter on account of Jesus is not a shameful suffering for it glorifies God. Sinful suffering does not benefit us, it destroys us. Whereas God causes all righteous suffering to work together for the good of those who are called according to His purpose.

We should remember that even though we will be afflicted, we are not destroyed and even though we may not understand everything that is happening to us, we are not to allow it to drive us to a point of despair for we have a hope – that is Jesus Christ – within us that sustains us until the Lord delivers us from it all. “And after you have suffered a little while, the God of all grace, who has called you to His eternal glory in Christ, will Himself restore, confirm, strengthen, and establish you.” 1 Peter 5:10

Child of God, you have been given the privilege to fellowship with God which is what you do when you engage in an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ. It is an honor to suffer and be tested for His sake. In and of itself, that privilege alone would be enough but furthermore, God has blessed you to receive benefits on account of your righteous suffering and if your faith is genuine, you will come through it all complete and lacking nothing. “Count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.” James 1:2-4

Be encouraged my brothers and sisters. Though suffering must come, God will not allow you to be tempted beyond your ability. He will always provide a way out so that you will be able to endure it. Look for it. On the other hand, if you are not willing to carry the cross that has been handed to you, know that you will be rejected and considered not worthy of Him. Although suffering will bring pain, it will yield a peaceful fruit. “Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the Kingdom of Heaven. Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in Heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.” Matthew 5:10-12

“Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.” 2 Corinthians 1:3-4

You, my friend, are not alone and we are not to walk this journey alone. It is our charge as Believers to bear one another’s burdens. In this, we are fulfilling the law of Christ. (Galatians 6:2) In the natural, suffering is not pleasant. However, in the spirit, it is good for us and the benefits are many. Granted, this is all a mystery. You will be tempted however, do not turn from it and do not despise it. “Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?” Romans 8:35

Though we (Believers) are being killed all the day long and are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered, we shall resolve to continue on for His sake. Neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.  (Romans 8:35-39)

When you are temped to turn away from the cup of suffering that is handed to you, remember that God’s grace is sufficient and His power is made perfect in your weakness. (2 Corinthians 12:7-10) “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.” (John 3:16) 

Those who suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God in that name. To this, you have been called because Christ also suffered for you, leaving you an example so that you might follow in His steps, and those who endure it to the end will be saved.



A few weeks ago, in the wee hours of the morning, I awoke with excruciating pain in my left knee. After I screamed out, I grabbed my knee then pulled my knee to my chest. I then heard in my spirit a message from the Lord. “Pain will come in submitting to the authority of God Almighty.”

As one who often receives divine revelation through dreams and visions, over the years I have come to understand that there is significant meaning behind every symbolic detail that the Lord reveals. In this impartations, God has shown me that my left side represents the authority He has given me in my call as a prophet. He has shown me that my right side represents the power He has given me to operate within that authority. The knee represents submission to God’s Spirit as in “every knee shall bow.” God used the pain I experienced in my knee to deliver a message to me for the purpose of delivering this message to you, the Church…

As followers of Jesus Christ, and according to the measure that has been assigned to each individual Believer, we have all been given authority, by God, to operate within the power to “heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out demons.” You, as a follower of Jesus Christ, are to submit everything the Lord has given you to His Power, His Authority and His Will – not your own. With that being said, you must also understand that as a Believer submitting your life to the Will of God, you will be subjected to tests, required to make sacrifices and expected to endure pain. When these things come your way, do not think them strange. When these things come your way, know that God will work “all things together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” (Romans 8:28) 

Why must it be this way? Because you live in an evil world that is for a time being influenced by your enemy – who is the devil – to rebel against God. This world is not conducive to the ways of God. In fact, it represents everything that is contrary to God. As you walk the straight and narrow path that the Lord has paved for you, you will come up against much resistance. This conflict is evident in everything and everyone around you including those who are closest to you. As you progress in your walk, much will happen that you will not understand. However, “you must not grow weary while doing good, for in due season you shall reap if you do not lose heart.” (Galatians 6:9) 

Even though you will find that you have little control over the things that must take place in your life, remember that God always does. God has always been and always will be – in control. In the midst of the storms that will come, be encouraged and continue to trust God for it is written: “I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope.” (Jeremiah 29:11)

Even though you will not understand all of the trials that will befall you, continue to trust God and obey His every command for it is written: “My thoughts are not your thoughts, nor are your ways My ways,” says the Lord. “For as the Heavens are higher than the Earth, so are My ways higher than your ways, and My thoughts than your thoughts.” (Isaiah 55:8-9)

In case you have not been properly informed, know that following Jesus is not easy. This is not a walk for the faint at heart. When one makes a decision to follow the Lord, one must count the cost then make the decision ahead of time whether they are willing to pay the cost – for it is a high price indeed. Oh, but it is so worth it. If you do not resolve, from the start, to remain faithful to the Lord no matter what, you have already lost the battle. For your enemy will know this and he will take full advantage of this winning edge that he has over you. He will do whatever it takes and use whatever he can to destroy you.

Do you desire to be counted among the few who will overcome this world, or are you destined to be among the many who will not? There are many who say they believe but yet their lives say otherwise. Do you love God more than you love this world? Do you love Jesus more than you love your sin? It is written: “Many are called but few are chosen.” (Matthew 22:14)

We, as Believers, are to follow as Jesus followed. Just as Jesus submitted His Will to the Will of the Father, we are to submit our will to the Will of the Father. Just as Jesus humbled Himself and became as a bondservant committing His life to the service of the Father – even to His death on the cross – we also must humble ourselves and become bondservants who commit our lives to the service of the Father. Just as Jesus endured indescribable pain and suffering for us, redeeming us from the penalty of sin, we must be willing to endure pain and suffering on account of the name of Jesus, for it is written: “A disciple is not above his teacher, nor a servant above his master.” (Matthew 10:24)

Jesus submitted His Will to His Father’s Will and God exalted our Lord and Savior. He now sits and rules at the right hand of God. Now, by His authority and by the powerful name of Jesus Christ, it is written that come what may every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess – in Heaven, on Earth and beneath the Earth – that Jesus is Lord. If you are faithful to the end, you shall also continue in His way following His perfect example for His way is the only way to move you onward and upward into His Kingdom of glory.

“Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the Name which is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in Heaven, and of those on Earth, and of those under the Earth, and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” Philippians 2:5-11

My Dad ‘The Miracle Man’ & The Story Of His Three Deaths

“Where are you, Lord… And where are the miracles?” I whispered to God the night before I received what was to become the most earth-shattering phone call of my life…

It was sometime around midnight on June 18th, 2013 as I sat on my living room sofa pondering everything that had taken place in my life over the previous three months. In hindsight, I confess that I was not handling well the extreme  spiritual warfare I was engaged in and the enemy was gaining the upper hand. I remember struggling with a feeling of helplessness and it had a paralyzing grip on me.

I didn’t understand it. I believed in the almighty God and I acknowledged Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior however in the midst of all that power, I still could not deny that I felt powerless as I stood by and watched while physical and spiritual attacks were relentlessly being made on me and my family. These attacks included family deaths and catastrophic illnesses. They were pulling apart our marriages and causing unbelievable discord among my family members. The covers were being ripped off of everyone and sin was rearing its ugly as it carried us into territory we had never experienced before. And as if that wasn’t enough, in the midst of all the fiery darts that were coming at me, I suffered alone in indescribable pain as my heart ached for my only son whom I had not seen in years. Constant prayers were being prayed but I could not see them being answered. The effect of it all was devastating and it was yielding a family that was broken and a ministry that had become stagnant.

There I sat on the sofa feeling numb. So much so that I found it difficult to pray. When I tried to speak to God, all I could whisper under my breath was, “Where are you, Lord…  And where are the miracles?”

As I stared into the darkness, words came to my mind that I have heard many people say in the midst of a crisis as they tried to comfort someone who is going through Hell on earth: “You’ll get through this. God never puts more on people than they can bear.” I cringed every time I heard it. “Is this really true?” I thought. “And furthermore, is it even biblical?” I couldn’t tell you why, but I had always doubted those words and that night, I decided to prove it.

I reached for my Bible and began to search the Scriptures for proof that would either confirm or dispute the statement. If this were true I thought, then why do so many people (including Christians) resort to such extreme and desperate measures when life becomes too unbearable for them? As I flipped through the pages, I came across a passage that was written by Paul, the apostle. “No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.” 1 Corinthians 10:13

Here it is, I thought! This must be the scripture that so many have misinterpreted. As I read it again, I saw that the scripture referred to temptations. It said that God will not allow us to be tempted beyond what we are able. It did not refer to the afflictions that will come to us in this life. I continued to read a little further and I found another scripture written by Paul: “I think you ought to know, dear brothers and sisters, about the trouble we went through in the province of Asia. We were crushed and completely overwhelmed, and we thought we would never live through it. In fact, we expected to die. But as a result, we learned not to rely on ourselves, but on God who can raise the dead.” 2 Corinthians 1:8-9

“Okay, Lord,” I prayed. “Thank you for this. So many people have it wrong. You do allow into our lives more than we can bear. However, in order for us to be able to live through it and learn from it, we must rely on You.” Little did I know at the time that the Lord was preparing me for something so devastating that I would not be able to survive it, or learn from it, unless I looked to Him for His wisdom and leaned on Him for His strength.

Early the following morning, I received a phone call from one of my sisters. She was calling to inform me of a strange event that had just taken place. She explained that my mother – who had been diagnosed with a form of dementia and who was declining rapidly and losing her cognitive abilities therefore could not speak – had made an unbelievable phone call – on her own – to alert my sister of an emergency concerning my dad. It turned out that my dad was experiencing stroke symptoms and my mother recognized the signs! My sister explained, “After Mommy called me, she put Daddy on the phone and I talked to him but he refuses to go to the hospital. He keeps saying that he’s fine.”

My sister and parents lived in Plano, Texas and I was living in Georgia therefore I could not get to my dad, so I immediately hung up the phone and called him myself. I firmly told him that I was going to send an ambulance for him. He insisted that he was fine and said he would refuse the ambulance if I did so. Instead, he agreed to drive himself to the emergency room (which was only minutes down the street) just to satisfy us and my mother. This was not what I would have preferred but there was little else I could do under the circumstances. My dad kept his word and with my mother in the car, he drove himself to the hospital. In the emergency room, it was confirmed that my dad had experienced a second stroke (the first one had only been a year before). So they admitted him into Baylor McKinney Hospital for further testing and observation. My dad spent a peaceful night at the hospital. We were all grateful that the stroke did not seem to be major and my family and I looked forward to him going home the next day. Little did we know, God had other plans and life as we knew it would never be the same again.

The following morning, things began to take a turn for the worse and my dad was not released from the hospital Early that afternoon, he had began to complain of stomach pain and he could not pass his urine. Furthermore, every time he tried to lie down, he complained of having breathing difficulties. By this time, a team of nurses had come into his room trying to take his temperature and draw his blood. However, they were unsuccessful. Strangely enough, they could not get a temperature reading on him neither could they draw any blood from his veins. His blood pressure began to drop dangerously so they rushed him into ICU. There, he complained of being cold and then slowly became unresponsive.

Within minutes of all this, my dad suffered a massive heart attack, went into cardiac arrest and he died – his first death. My dad was without a heartbeat or a pulse for twenty minutes. A team of doctors and nurses worked frantically to revive him – and they did but twenty to thirty minutes afterwards, he went into another cardiac arrest and he died – his second death. This time, he was without a heartbeat or a pulse for twenty-five minutes. A third time, his medical team revived him. We found out later that my dad had actually suffered a third cardiac arrest and he died again – his third death – however, for reasons no one could or would explain, the third one was not placed on record. In secret, one of the male nurses that worked on my dad confirmed that he had, in fact, died a third time. The nurse was adamant when he explained to my sisters and I that the circumstances surrounding my dad’s third cardiac revival went against hospital policy which is why no one would talk about it. Therefore, we don’t know how long he had been dead during the third death. None of this made any sense to us, or anyone else for that matter.

I discovered later that brain damage is highly likely if the heart stops for more than 5 minutes and death is highly likely if the heart stops for more than 10 minutes. My dad died three times and was without a heartbeat or a pulse for more than 45 minutes total! Another nurse who worked on my dad also explained to us later that an incredible chain of events took place in the course of reviving my dad. We were told, off the record, that some of the events even went against hospital rules. “They were pulling people in and out from different departments and floors who should never have been there,” he told us. Later, after speaking to some of the other key participants, I found out that everything that happened in Baylor McKinney Hospital that night defied logic. They all agreed that everyone felt compelled to work together for my dad – an old black man of meager means that no one knew anything about – for reasons no one could understand. My dad eventually became known throughout that Texas hospital as the miracle man.

After the doctors revived my dad for the third time, a cardiologist had my sister arrange a conference call between him, my sister in Texas, my sister in Pennsylvania and me in Georgia. Over the phone, the emergency room cardiologist explained to us that my dad was on life support. He further explained that he could no longer breathe on his own and that his organs were rapidly shutting down. He also explained that my dad had no brain activity, that his kidneys had failed and that they had found acid in his blood which was a sign that all of his organs were failing.

In horror, my family watched as my dad’s body physically reacted to what was going on internally. His body began to violently jerk and his tongue darted uncontrollably in and out of his mouth. The doctor explained that this happens when the brain can no longer send signals to the nerves. He told us that my dad could not and would not survive the trauma that his body had gone through and that he would not make it through the night. He further explained that if by some miracle he did make it through the night, he would be in a vegetative state. He advised us to give him permission to let my dad go if he suffered another cardiac arrest which he felt was highly likely. The three of us were hesitant to do so but when the doctor explained that my dad was suffering horribly, we agreed.

Immediately, I packed and made plans to drive from Georgia to Texas.  “Why was God allowing this?” I asked myself as I traveled. I prayed for a miracle but honestly I did not know what to expect when I arrived. As the oldest, I also prayed for strength for I knew my family would be expecting me to hold it all together. Emotionally, I prepared myself for burying my dad and began to consider plans to care for my mother. I drove straight through and made it to Texas the following evening. When I arrived on June 21, 2013,  amazingly my dad was still unconscious – but alive. I tried to wrap my brain, and my faith, around everything that was happening. But, again all I could do was ask the God same questions. “Where are you, Lord…  And where are the miracles?”

People do not realize that countless numbers of miracles are taking place every day. Unfortunately, we may only hear about a handful of them. What happened to my dad would be one of them. Why does God miraculously heal some on this side of Heaven and yet choose to not heal others? I pondered this question over and over again. The reasons are too innumerable and complex to explain. A simple answer we will never have. therefore this as well as many questions like it will remain a mystery. As almighty God, Creator of all, it is His right to withhold whatever He chooses. We still praise Him nonetheless. It is enough to know that miracles do still happen.

The morning following my arrival to Texas, we were all (including all the doctors at the hospital)  shocked to discover that my dad had survived the night. Doctors were even more so amazed when he opened his eyes days later. By now my dad had become a medical wonder and a curious spectacle. Doctors were coming in from all over and just stared at him. No one could explain what was going on with him.

When my dad opened his eyes, his sight was poor and his eyes looked as if they were pushed out of their sockets but within a week he began to look like himself and was able to see clearly and he continued to get stronger every day. Days later, my dad pulled the feeding tube from his nose. After a few more days, the doctors decided to also remove the breathing tube and he surprised everyone by being able to breathe on his own! Every day my dad did something to surprise everyone. Though he was not able to walk on his own, his vital signs became stronger, his failed kidneys began to miraculously improve and his cognitive abilities slowly returned – and no one could believe it when everyone discovered that there was absolutely no brain damage whatsoever! The most amazing thing of all that had happened to my dad was what he had to say when he finally began to speak. My dad began to slowly speak in a whisper and with tears in his eyes he told us about the amazing experience he encountered after he died.

Incredibly, my dad explained what happened after he died. He told us that when his heart stopped, everything faded to black. He said he saw the doctors pounding on him, injecting him, shocking him and doing everything they could to revive him, yet he felt no pain. He remembered floating upward outside of his body and looking down to see a woman doing CPR on him. Later, that same nurse could not look at my dad without breaking into tears. “I thought you were gone,” she said to him. “I don’t know why,”  she later told my dad. “But I just could not give up on you. So I just kept going.”

I would like to note here that my dad was not a Believer prior to his death. So when he shared additional disturbing details about what he saw, it particularly moved me. My dad spoke of being in a place of heavy and total darkness for what seemed like an eternity. He said that while he was in that place, he felt hopelessness, loneliness and horrifying fear. He said he remembered being disappointed because unlike what some people had described about the dying experience, he heard no Heavenly voice and he saw no angels. He did however, finally hear a voice tell him that it was not his time.  After my dad recovered enough to think and speak clearly, my husband called and spoke to him about the Lord. Then he led my dad in a prayer to accept Jesus Christ as his Savior.

Weeks later, my dad shocked everyone when he walked out of the hospital with all his faculties intact and he described a glorious sight. As he looked up into the sky, he said it was too bright for him to see so he had to cover his face for it hurt his eyes. Yet, when his eyes adjusted, he said he saw Jesus standing in the Heavens. Afterwards, my dad continued to share his miracle with everyone who would listen. He also continued to relentlessly and lovingly care for my mother who he believed the Lord brought him back for. My mother died eleven months later in May of 2014 and my dad’s final death followed ten months after her’s in March of 2015.

After leading my dad to Christ, my husband told him: “Mr. Lee, God has given you a second chance.” God had, in fact, given my dad a second chance. In reality though, God had given everyone who had the privilege of experiencing his miracle a second chance. This now includes you. And as for the answer to my questions: “Where are you, Lord… And where are the miracles?” The Lord says that nothing has changed. God is here. His miracles are here. Jesus says, “Yesterday, today and forever, I Am.”


As far back as I can remember, I have loved and appreciated the art and the gift of literary expression. Since a child, I have found pleasure in writing stories, poetry, essays and any excuse I could find to express myself. However, my writing changed in the fall of 2001. On the eve of what was to become the most painful period of my life, I heard the audible voice of God for the first time and supernaturally I began to receive inspirational, Holy Spirit-inspired psalms and poems from the Lord…

These literary ‘gifts’ would come to me when I least expected them so I tried to keep a pen and paper handy in my purse, by my bed, in the car or anywhere else I thought the Lord would speak to me.

As the stormy winds of life blew in hard and cold, these beautiful gifts spoke peace into my life as they comforted me and ministered to me through it all. As the psalms and poems continued to come, my husband often urged me to consider sharing them for ministry purposes. However, at the time, the idea of sharing my writings felt as if I was allowing the world to enter into my bedroom. It was too soon and too invasive. These psalms and poems spoke to me concerning details of my life that were deeply personal and so I hid them away on the top shelf of my bedroom closet for safe keeping.

In 2012, however, the Lord changed my heart. During a time of grief and family loss, I shared one of my poems with a loved one and was surprised to see it minister to them as much as it had ministered to me. My husband was right. So, I began the process of designing and publishing my work. However, my efforts were often frustrated by the distractions of life and the ploys of the enemy so, once again, I tucked them away on the top shelf of my bedroom closet for another time.

The Lord continued to nudge me over the years and I continued to allow life to distract me. However, in the summer of 2016, the Lord spoke to me yet again urging me to focus on my writing. This time, He reminded me of the gift He had given me and the ministry it was given for.

Not long after this, the Lord woke me from sleep one night with an idea for my poetry: What He showed me was a collection of ministering Gift Books. Each ‘gift book’ was to be beautifully illustrated ‘and devoted to one poem/psalm of my choosing with its theme carried throughout. It would be a short read and include theme-related vignettes. Each book would also include journals for the reader to record their thoughts, prayers and reflections. “What a perfect idea,” I thought. One worthy of each and every one of those divinely-inspired psalms and poems. Upon waking, I immediately began the work the Lord had given me. This time, with a commitment to continue to completion…

I am very pleased to announce that my poetic work is finished!

My commission was assigned for all will be told,

Of the silver-tongued message through silence of gold:

“Cry out in the wilderness with a voice that’s not heard!

Speak boldly of Christ though you won’t say a word.”


On the day before the 2016 presidential election, between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, my husband and I had a disagreement. For the first time in my adult life, I felt strongly that I should NOT vote for either of the candidates. However, my husband disagreed.

That evening, I did something I’m a bit embarrassed to say I had not done previously in any other election… I prayed. I asked God what He thought I should do. I specifically prayed and asked that He either confirm my convictions to not vote in the election or speak to me clearly otherwise. Then I went to bed.

That night, God not only gave me a dream, He gave me an immediate interpretation upon waking from that dream. In the dream, I saw a couple – an older white man and an older white woman, together. They were not married to each other and they were climbing into bed to have sex. In the dream, my husband suggested that we climb into bed with them – to also have sex. I was horrified that my husband would suggest such a thing, but he persisted and insisted that it would be okay. So, I eventually gave in, against my better judgement. As my husband and I climbed into bed and laid next to the older white couple, strangely, it appeared as if they didn’t see us or know that we were there. In the dream, my husband’s focus was on the couple. He watched everything they did and then tried to repeat what he saw them doing with me. In spite of my protesting, my husband obsessively, and even uncontrollably, continued to emulate the actions of the older couple. Then I awoke.

Immediately upon waking, the Lord gave me the interpretation of the dream.  The Lord made it known to me that if I, or my husband, were to vote for either Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump, it would be likened to climbing into bed with sin for God saw both parties as unrighteous and evil. God further explained that when we align ourselves with people, such as in an election, when we enter into friendships and relationships, when we enter into business partnerships and even when we choose a spouse, we are becoming spiritually party to every decision that person makes. God made it known to me that He holds us accountable for every decision we make, even ones concerning people we align ourselves with. In aligning ourselves with people, by default, we are even agreeing to the same spiritual consequences that person will receive on account of the decisions that they make. In essence, when we align ourselves with others, we become yoked together with them. This becomes a fiduciary relationship and when we enter into such, we are delegating our spiritual power to them allowing them to act on our behalf.

After I shared my dream and its interpretation with my husband, he knew it was from the Lord and agreed with me. Neither of us voted that day.

Now, my experience may not be your experience. Just as my walk with God is not the same as your walk with God. This particular message was for me. I am not here to tell you with who you should or should not be aligning yourself. That responsibility belongs solely to God. I am only here to share the universal message of warning I received through this dream. If you are not sure about what I am saying. No problem. Let God be true and every man a liar. Align it up with the word of God. You will find that what I am saying is actually scriptural. The Holy Bible clearly tells us “Do not be deceived: “Evil company corrupts…” (1 Corinthians 15:33)

Child of God, especially in these times and absolutely for the times that are to come, as a Believer, you must have your own personal relationship with Jesus Christ. How else can you, and will you, be able to survive the deception that is all around you? And it is everywhere, including in the Church. Christianity is not a faith or a religion. It is a relationship. God speaks to His children – when His children are speaking to Him.

The take-away here is this. Beloved, be very careful about the people with whom you enter into an agreement with. The decisions you make, and those you make them with, are not to be taken lightly. As a Believer, you must understand the importance of submitting every one, every thing and every decision to the Lord for His approval, His counsel and His guidance.  The access that you, as a Child of God, has to the throne room of God is mandatory, immeasurable and priceless. Use it. However, it has to be said that this privilege is only possible for those who are in relationship with Him through His son, Jesus Christ. Always remember  that there are supernatural repercussions behind every decision you make in the natural.

This dream was a wake-up call for me. I pray that it opens your eyes as well.


Followers of Jesus Christ, CONCERNING YOUR DECISION IN THE PAST PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION, as well as every other decision you are responsible for making in this world, be mindful to FIRST SEEK GOD with all your heart – then be obedient and do as the Holy Spirit leads you.

To vote or not to vote? That is the question. Child of God, pray often and concerning everything. Then KNOW THAT HARD TIMES ARE COMING. It is unavoidable. So, be diligent and prepare. Unless the Lord calls you home beforehand, there will be no escaping it. KNOW JESUS CHRIST and FOLLOW JESUS CHRIST. DO NOT TURN AWAY FROM THE LORD no matter what, for the Lord has warned us that there will be a great falling away of Believers in these last days. DO NOT BE AMONG THEM.


Though there is much going on around us that is shocking and unbelievable. Nothing catches God by surprise. He knows the beginning and the end of it all. Not only does God know what is to come, He is actually orchestrating and allowing things to happen in the world around us – as well as in your life. Everything will take place exactly as His will dictates. For everything is A DIVINE SETUP.

To those who love and are obedient to God, be at peace. If you do not know God, there is no time like the present to REPENT and SEEK JESUS CHRIST with all your heart… before it is too late.


Evil and the corruption of the world is unprecedented… The followers of Satan are increasing at an alarming rate and the practice of witchcraft is at an all-time high… The anti-Christ is alive in this world today and is patiently awaiting his time of unveiling… God’s judgment hovers over the nations and His wrath is being unleashed… Jesus is not just coming soon. He is patiently waiting at the door… You can see it and you can feel it all around you as you observe the world events and even the people who are – and will be – doing their part to usher it all onto the scene. They can’t help it. A man’s heart plans his way, but the Lord directs his steps.” Proverbs 16:9


Child of God, be encouraged. Do not be alarmed. These things, as alarming as they are, must happen. They represent the birthing pains of what is sure to come. It all must come – before our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ can fulfill His prophecy and return.

Destruction and severe times are inevitable. Yet God has made provision for you in the days that are coming. Stay faithful and unwavering in your walk. Listen for the Holy Spirit to speak, then obey His every word. Stand firm on the Rock that is Jesus for your God is greater than he who is in this world. He is still very much alive and in complete control of everyone and everything.


Satan is a counterfeit master. His entire existence is based off of emulating everything that is godly and everything that belongs to God. His efforts have deceived many.


Satan was once an angel who lived in God’s Heavenly Kingdom. His privileged position granted him first-hand knowledge of God’s Kingdom secrets including how God ruled the Heavens and placement of God’s angelic hierarchy. The following scripture from the Holy Bible explains Satan’s expulsion from Heaven.


“And war broke out in Heaven: Michael and his angels fought with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought, but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them in heaven any longer. So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. Then I heard a loud voice saying in Heaven, “Now salvation, and strength, and the Kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death. Therefore rejoice, O Heavens, and you who dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has a short time.” Revelation 12:7-12


After Satan was expelled from Heaven, along with other fallen angels who followed him, he set up shop, so to speak, here on Earth. He has been disrupting the world, corrupting the people and trying his best to emulate God in everything he does in an effort to continue to deceive the people. .


Make no mistake, the devil does have power. However, you must remember that the devil is also a created being – a God-created being. The power he was given, by God, is like a pebble compared to the mountain-size sovereignty, power and majestic rule of God.


Many of you may wonder why God didn’t remove Satan’s power from him when he was thrown out of Heaven. Simply, because the devil has a job to do, just like you and me. God uses the limited amount of power that the devil has to sift the evil out of this world. God has Satan on a leash. Yes, he is wreaking havoc, but only for a time and only under the control of almighty God. When his time is up, not only will the devil be cast down into the fiery pit of Hell, he will be taking all of his counterparts along with him. And he knows this. Hopefully, that won’t include you.


Because the devil knows his time is short – and it really is – things in the demonic realm are really ramping up. The interesting, and almost amusing, thing about all of this is that Satan still believes – or at least that’s what he has convinced his followers – that somehow his original, diabolical plan to ‘take over the world’ is still going to happen. At least, he’s going to give it his best shot. However, we Believers have already read the story and we know how it will end. Jesus will return and He, and all who follow Him, will be victorious.


As stated above, the devil is a counterfeit master. He copies everything that belongs to God. The office of a Seer Prophet, and the gifts that come along with this office such as dreams, visions, discerning of spirits, words of knowledge, etc. were all established by God and were all given by God. Satan knows this. So he uses his demons and the limited amount of demonic power they and he have to indwell his followers – no it’s not the people who has the power, it’s the demons – and these people are put into place to use this demonic power, demonically charged spells, demonically charged potions, etc. to emulate the Holy Spirit’s gifts that are given by God. There is no such thing as a Seer that serves the devil. Only people who serve the devil who are counterfeit copies of the originals.


These demon spirit-indwelled counterfeits are the witches, the fortune tellers, the spiritualists, the necromancers, etc. who take the people’s money and exploit their ignorance, their curiosity, their grief, their vulnerabilities, etc. Not to mention, these evil-indwelled people are helping people of all ages – many who are not aware of the danger they are engaging in – to open doors to demon-possession and demonic attacks on their lives, the lives of their children, their family members and generations yet to come. This is how generational curses get started.


I hope I have cleared up some confusion and answered some questions concerning magic and the truth behind all forms of witchcraft, demonic spirits and false seer prophets.


On May 13th, 2017, I received a dream from the Lord. I have posted this dream previously in my blog, but I feel an urgency to repost this message again…

God is consistently reaching out to His people in these last days. He is warning His Church, the Body of Christ, to get their “house” in order for He is preparing them for the imminent return of Jesus Christ.

In this dream, I was the subject the Lord used to deliver this message. I saw myself managing a multi-family community. In the community, there were many buildings. In each building were two single-story apartments on the left – one on the top-level and the other on the lower-level – and one two-story townhouse on the right. I saw myself going from building to building examining everyone’s home in the community for cleanliness. I checked the outside and then I checked the inside. I also went to the rear of the house and checked the patios and porches as well. I examined each apartment and townhouse thoroughly for cleanliness and I noted any trash or debris. At the homes where I found trash, I left a notice for the residents to remove it all and informed them that they were in violation. Each notice included a warning that also informed them that I would be returning soon but on an unspecified date. The notice stated that when I returned, a penalty would be imposed on those who chose to ignore my warning and remain in violation. Those residents would incur a penalty that included the enforcement of an eviction.

Some of the residents in the community were obedient and heeded my warning by quickly cleaning their home and removing all the trash. Yet, some were complacent, not thinking it important, and did nothing at all. Others were angry and insisted that I explain to them why they had to comply with my rules. For they felt it was their life and their home therefore, they should be able to live it any way they chose. I explained to these residents that the property they were living on belonged to me and, therefore, I had the right to impose and enforce any rule I felt necessary to keep my property in good condition. I explained to them that they would not live in my community forever, for one day they would have to move on. But while they were here, it would be wise for them to abide by my rules and learn from them for they were in place only for their good. I also informed them that one day, they would desire to move to a more luxurious home. When that day came, they would require a recommendation and referral from me before they would be permitted to move there. I further explained that without my approval, the only type of home they would be able to access would be substandard and guaranteed to be not to their liking. I then awoke from this dream.

Later, the Lord gave me the interpretation… He showed me that in the dream, I was the Landlord and was representing Jesus, the Master Property Manager. The buildings in this dream represented locations all over the world. The apartments and town homes represented three categories of people who make up this world. There were the lower-level apartments that represented the poor, those who are considered the least in this world. There were the upper-level apartments that represented those who are considered above the least in this world. Then there were the two-story townhouses that represented the wealthy and rich in this world. In the dream, they all lived together in one building for the Lord is no respecter of persons who sees and treats everyone the same. We must all meet His requirements and we are all expected to comply regardless of who we are and what we have. My access to all of the homes represents the Lord and His access to everything in our lives. Nothing we do and nothing we feel is hidden from Him. I examined the outside of the home which represents the outer appearance that we show to the world. I examined the interior of the home which represents our motives and intentions that are hidden inside of our hearts. Finally, while inside the homes, I examined the patios and porches which represent the secret trash we hold on to and are hesitant to get rid of and hand over to the Lord.  There is nothing we can hide from God. He sees it all.

Child of God, the Lord is giving you every chance to repent and return to Him. He is speaking to you personally which is the conviction you are experiencing and He is bringing others to warn you as well. You have been adequately prepared and warned. There will be no excuses when your time comes to leave this life and move on into eternity. When that time comes, are you sure about where you will go? Is your life cluttered with the trash of sin and disobedience? If so, will you heed God’s warning and rid yourself of it all before it is too late? When Jesus returns, will you be in right standing with Him? Will you receive a good reference and be approved to move on into the glorious presence of the Lord? Or will you be denied and rejected? Quite simply, will you make it into Heaven or are your destined for Hell? There are many, many former Christians who are spending eternity there and regret not heeding the voice of the Lord when they had the chance. The choice is truly yours.

“Do you not know that you are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in you? If anyone destroys God’s temple, God will destroy him. For God’s temple is Holy, and you are that temple.” 1 Corinthians 3:16-17


Early in the evening of August 17, 2017, I received a very disturbing vision… It was early and I was not quite ready to retire for the evening. Yet, I felt unusually tired so I decided to lie down for just a little while. As I laid down to rest, I suddenly became extremely sleepy. I felt as if I had been drugged and sleep came on me pretty quickly. The moment I closed my eyes, I immediately had a very quick and very vivid vision: I saw a large, black fly come into view then it landed on my left arm. I was alarmed so I immediately brushed the fly off with my right hand then I awoke very suddenly. I gasped for air then sat straight up in the bed. I stood by the bed and tried to process what had just happened. Then the Lord quickly gave me the interpretation of the vision…


Dreams are very much like riddles. They have to be solved. They can also be compared to parables like the ones Jesus told in the Bible. Dreams are not always immediately understood. Often, it can take days, weeks, months and even years to receive a full interpretation. However, every once in a while, depending upon the urgency and timeliness of the situation, the Lord will give me an immediate interpretation, as He did in this case. Visions are usually shorter with messages that are a little easier to understand.

To be quite honest, I don’t understand why there is so much mystery surrounding dreams and visions. I’ve always felt that it would be so much easier if God would simply tell me what it is He wants me to know. However, I am not God and He is. So we do it His way. I do believe, however, that I have found a clue in Scripture that speaks to this. It states: “It is the glory of God to conceal a thing: but the honor of kings is to search out a matter.” (Proverbs 25:2) 

Every dream and vision from God is extremely important. Every detail is symbolic and has significant meaning. The Lord does not give dreams for entertainment purposes. The messages they deliver can often be a matter of life and death. These messages often reveal information about others for the purpose of edification, for warnings, for rebuke, for encouragement, to prepare someone for something that is to come as well as share information that requires prayer on behalf of others. When these messages are revealed, they must be heeded. It might surprise you to know that all dreams do not come from God, as the devil can influence dreams as well.  If you dream, be sure to pray and ask God if the dream was from Him and if so, ask Him to direct you concerning it.

I dream almost every night. A fair amount of the dreams I receive are concerning personal details about my life, family members and other people. God also often gives me messages for the Church, the Body of Christ, as a whole. This was the case with this particular vision.


Last year, (2016) the Lord showed me, in a dream, a rod being placed in my left hand. It was revealed that this rod further confirmed my call as a Seer Prophet and represented the authority God has given me, through Jesus Christ, to come against demonic forces. In a different experience and at a different time, the Lord communicated to me that in my right hand He has also placed power, also given through Jesus Christ, to fight these demonic forces. Symbolically, I came to understand that where dreams and visions are concerned, the left represents authority and the right represents power. This authority and power, by the way, is given to every born-again Believer. Although Christians should not fear Satan, this does not mean that we are immune to the temptations he places before us.

We must be aware of the presence of evil in this world. We must understand that our enemies are not mere people, but demonic forces that operate through these people. The Bible says, “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.” (Ephesians 6:12) The truth is that God has allowed Satan a certain amount of temporary power and influence in this world. However, it is also true that Satan and every other spiritual being is still subject to God’s sovereign control.


As I mentioned earlier, dreams and visions are symbolic images that reveal important messages from God. Concerning the vision I had, the Lord revealed to me that the large fly that flew in represented a demonic attack that will soon come against the followers of Jesus Christ. Do not be alarmed. Instead be prepared. We have been given everything we need to counteract this attack. In the vision, the fly landed on my left arm. And if you remember, the left side represents authority. The enemy will try to come against you, the Believer, and the authority the Lord has given you to fight against him. You must be on guard against this attack. In the vision, I quickly brushed the fly off my left arm with my right hand. If you remember, the right side represents power. This is telling me that you have been given the power to quickly come against every demonic attack that tries to come against you. The key word here is quickly. Do not allow sin of any kind to come into your life and linger. If someone hurts you, forgive them quickly. If you fall to temptation, quickly repent and turn from it. Do not allow things like anger, bitterness, unforgiveness, immorality, etc. to remain in your life. This represents filth and garbage in your life. Flies are attracted to such things. Satan is an evil pestilence who wants to kill, steal and destroy you. He literally wants to suck the life out of you – and he will if you allow him.

Following are powerful tools that you have at your disposal to defeat the enemy.


Don’t step out the door without it. Be sure you are not allowing barriers like sin, unforgiveness, hatred and bitterness to block your right standing with God. This will bind the hands of God from covering you and will prevent your prayers from being answered. Quite simply, without it you are helpless against the enemy and have already lost the battle.


God hears the prayers of the righteous. Use your authority to speak forth powerful words for prayer, to bind up the demonic powers of Satan and to loose the many blessings God has for you.


Equip yourself with spiritual armor.  Scripture states:  “Be strong in the Lord and in His mighty power. Put on all of God’s armor so that you will be able to stand firm against all strategies of the devil. For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places. Therefore, put on every piece of God’s armor so you will be able to resist the enemy in the time of evil. Then after the battle you will still be standing firm. Stand your ground, putting on the belt of truth and the body armor of God’s righteousness. For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared. In addition to all of these, hold up the shield of faith to stop the fiery arrows of the devil. Put on salvation as your helmet, and take the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all Believers everywhere.” Ephesians 6:10-18


Yes, you have been given the authority to cast out demons. If you find that you have come up against resistance with more difficult cases of demonic attacks, contact a Spirit-filled Believer in the Church body who has been given special authority such as those who are experienced in deliverance ministry to assist you. “These miraculous signs will accompany those who believe: They will cast out demons in My name,” Mark 16:17


Become familiar with then fully utilize the spiritual gifts the Lord has given you to fight your adversary. If you don’t know what your gifts are, pray and ask God to reveal them to you.Now these are the gifts Christ gave to the Church: the apostles, the prophets, the evangelists, and the pastors and teachers. Their responsibility is to equip God’s people to do His work and build up the Church, the body of Christ.” Ephesians 4:11-12 


As a Believer, God has assigned His holy angels to assist you in your walk with Jesus Christ and to aid you in this spiritual battle. They are waiting to be dispatched by God for your defense. Call out to God and ask that He send them to guard and protect you and your home from the attacks of the enemy. If you make the Lord your refuge, if you make the Most High your shelter, no evil will conquer you; for He will order His angels to protect you wherever you go.” Psalm 91:9-11


Read the Word. Know the Word. Use the Word. The holy Scriptures have all the wisdom you need to take on this world and all of its evil counterparts. Start studying. “All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness,” 2 Timothy 3:16


“The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.” 2 Corinthians 12:14

Need I say more.

As you can see, you have many weapons in your spiritual arsenal. Make sure that you use them all. The authority and power to overcome the attacks of Satan belong only to the followers of Jesus Christ and every true Believer has been called to fight. We are all called for different responsibilities within the Church Body. Nevertheless, we have all been equipped to fight this battle the same. The moment you accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior, you enlisted in spiritual warfare. Like it or not, you are in this fight to the finish. So, you might as well commit yourself to doing all you can to win.

Allow me to encourage you. In the midst of it all, do not despair for there is good news! Jesus Christ has already achieved the victory. All you have to do is walk it out.

Walk mightily with the Lord and be blessed.


“And the Lord said to Samuel, …”I will carry out against Eli everything I spoke against his family – from beginning to end. For I told him that I would judge his family forever because of the sin he knew about; his sons blasphemed God, and he failed to restrain them. Therefore I swore to the house of Eli: ‘The guilt of Eli’s house will never be atoned for by sacrifice or offering.'” 1 Samuel 3:12-14


After God witnessed the evil that was committed by Eli’s adult sons, Hophni and Phinehas, He warned Eli, the priest, to put a stop to it all. The sins of Eli’s sons caused God’s people to stumble and because of them, “men abhored the offering of the Lord.”  1 Samuel 2:17

When Eli ignored God’s warning, God sent a prophet to deliver a message to Eli “in the name of the Lord.” The prophet pronounced God’s judgment over Eli informing him that God had found him guilty of not heeding the voice of the Lord and honoring his adult sons more than he honored God (1 Samuel 2: 27-30). Therefore God would cut off Eli and his entire family.

Although Eli had spoken to his sons about their sinful behavior, he did not do everything he could have done to put a stop to it. As a parent and as one who had neglected his spiritual authority, God judged Eli for God said, “He failed to restrain them.” 1 Samuel 3:13


Child of God, are you taking a passive position concerning the sin you are aware of in the lives of your family and friends? Are you choosing to be silent thinking “they are adults and are responsible for their own actions and decisions.” As a Believer, you have a responsibility to speak the truth of God’s Word into the lives of those God has placed around you. If you are obedient to share God’s Word concerning the sin of your family and friends and nothing comes of it, their sin is on them alone. However, if you have the opportunity to share God’s Word concerning their sin and yet you choose not to, you will take part in the judgement of their sin.

Eli did not heed the warning of the Lord to do all he could to put a stop to the sins that were committed by his sons, therefore God also judged Eli. To confirm the truth of God’s word, the Lord told Eli that he would witness a terrible thing: “What will happen to your two sons will be a sign to youthey will both die on the same day.” 1 Samuel 2:34

When God’s judgement came to past, not only did Eli’s sons die, Eli died as well.

“Whoever knows the right thing to do but fails to do it, for him it is sin.” James 4:17


Parenting is serious business and it carries with it serious consequences, especially for Believers. We have a responsibility to speak the truth of God’s Word to the lives of our children, in love. God does not take lightly anything we do, or do not do, that allows sin to creates a stumbling block for others. “If you cause one of these little ones who trust in Me to fall into sin, it would be better for you to have a large millstone tied around your neck and be drowned in the depths of the sea.” Matthew 18:6

Albeit true, parenting children of all ages can be a challenge. Many people believe that their adult status excludes them from needing the advice of their parents. Surprisingly, many Christian parents feel the same. Unfortunately, our society today encourages this attitude. This is another form of spiritual warfare.

Through this kind of attack, the enemy tries to introduce conflict and strife into the family by aiming at the those at the head as well as those who have spiritual authority. He knows that if he can weaken the bond between parents and their children, he has a chance to cause the entire family unit to self destruct. You cannot control the actions of others, but you can remove yourself from the hands of the enemy by choosing to be obedient to God. God’s way is the only way to strengthen and fortify your family against the relentless attacks of the enemy.

“Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain.” Proverbs 127:1


The enemy counts on another factor that contributes to the breakdown of families. His efforts throughout the ages to destroy, misrepresent and mock anything associated with God has poisoned the minds of the people causing society to disregard all that God regards. At the top of this list of priorities is the family and the proper order of relationships within the family.

The authority, rights and responsibilities of parents today have been under attack for quite some time. This is evident as we witness an unprecedented acceptance and encouraging of disrespect and dishonor among our children, as well as within our society, for parents and our elders in general. We can also see this trickle down into the family unit.

Many Christian parents today are more concerned with becoming friends with their children than they are about being accountable to God. In an effort to keep the peace and avoid conflict in the family, many parents are keeping quiet and avoiding confrontation where sin in the family is concerned. This is unacceptable in God’s eyes. As children of the King, they are subjecting themselves to His judgement.

Parents have many responsibilities. Parents who are Believers have even more. They are commanded, by God, to live as well as teach His Word, demonstrate unconditional love, encourage as well as correct and admonishment their young and adult children, everytime it is necessary. The role of a parent never changes – regardless of the age of your child. Parents, love your children but obey God and leave the consequences up to Him.

“Anyone who wants to be My follower must love Me far more than he does his own father, mother, wife, children, brothers and sisters – and yes even his own life – otherwise he cannot be My disciple.” Luke 14:26


God holds your adult children responsible for their own life, their own decisions and their own choices. When time comes, they, like you, will be held accountable and judged for it all. However, when they become adults and leave their parents’ home, the responsibility of their parents does not leave with them. It remains with the parents until the Lord takes the parents home to be with Him.

If your adult child asks for your advice, pray for God’s guidance and give them God’s Word, in love, concerning that matter. If God has revealed to you sin in the life of your child, again, pray for God’s guidance and give them God’s Word, in love, concerning that matter. Either way, passivity and silence is not option.


Through God’s Word, He has warned us and is preparing His children for the evil times that are to come, and is even already here, in these last days: “In the last days, there will be very difficult times. For people will love only themselves and their money. They will be boastful and proud, scoffing at God, disobedient to their parents and ungrateful. They will consider nothing sacred. They will be unloving and unforgiving; they will slander others and have no self-control. They will be cruel and hate what is good. They will betray their friends, be reckless, be puffed up with pride, and love pleasure rather than God.” 2 Timothy 3:1-5

Parents, be encouraged. In this wicked, disrespectful generation, God knows that your job is not an easy one. However, you must remember that your Father in Heaven is with you. Everything you do, in obedience to God, will be counted as righteousness towards you and all that God requires of you as parents.


Your children may not realize it now, but through you God is working it all out for their good as well. “And we know that God causes everything to work together for the good of those who love Him and are called according to His purpose for them.” Romans 8:28


People, of all ages, who dishonor and disrespect their parents are displeasing to God. The Lord commands us to always honor our fathers and mothers. This is without exceptions. Those who disobey this command should heed this warning to repent of this sin and turn away from it. For it is so written: “Blessed are those whose way is blameless, who walk in the law of the Lord.”  Psalm 119:1

It is also written:  “God blesses those who honor their parents with a good life and a long life. But He punishes and destroys those who curse or dishonor their parents.” Proverbs 20:20


Heavenly Father, I humbly come before You as Your child. I confess to You that I am redeemed by the Blood of Your son, Jesus. Look upon me, Lord, and know the true intent of my heart for nothing is hidden from You. I come before You this day to confess, repent and turn away from all my sins for I desire to be a clean and holy vessel before you. I ask for Your forgiveness, Lord, and I ask that You cleanse me from every sin I have ever knowingly and unknowingly committed. (Now confess your known sin). Thank You, Lord. By faith, I receive Your forgiveness. And by faith, I forgive myself. Father, I come before You to also confess the sins of my ancestors. I ask that You deliver me, and my family, from any and all generational curses that have come due to sin that was committed by those who came before me. I ask that You release me from the evil power attached to every curse. Now, by the authority given to me in Your name, I cancel any and all curses that have come upon me, and my family, as the result of my own sins. Thank You, Lord. I ask and pray in the powerful name of Jesus. Amen.

blessings-and-curses“I (says the Lord) call Heaven and Earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live;” Deuteronomy 30:19


Child of God, everything you do and say is always subject to God’s law. Even though the consequences of what you do and say may not immediately be seen in the natural, rest assured that everything immediately manifests in the spiritual realm in the former of either a blessing or a curse. We reap God’s blessings when we obey God. We suffer the consequences of God’s curses when we disobey God.

“For those blessed by Him will inherit the land, but those cursed by Him will be cut off.” Psalm 37:22


God loves His children and God loves to bless His children. However, God is a righteous, just and Holy God. He cannot violate His own statutes. Even in the light of God’s love for us, conditions He has set before Heaven and earth are still subject to Him and must be met. Therefore, He gives us His word to keep us in line. He tells us, very simply and very clearly, to “seek first His Kingdom and His righteousness and everything we need will be added to us.” (Matthew 6:33)

“Now it shall come to pass, if you diligently obey the voice of the Lord your God, to observe carefully all His Commandments which I command you today, that the Lord your God will set you high above all nations of the Earth. And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, because you obey the voice of the Lord your God.” Deuteronomy 28: 1-2


God’s blessings also come by way of circumstances that are not always comfortable to us or convenient for us. God will often place trials and tests before us that serve to demonstrate our faith in Him. An example of this is seen in the story of Abraham when God asked him to sacrifice his beloved son, Isaac. Abraham didn’t hesitate to do the ‘hard thing’ for above everything else, he trusted God. Abraham knew, with all his heart, that God loved him so therefore he trusted God. He knew that God requires of us only what is in our best interest. “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord. “Plans to prosper you and not harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11 

What God asked Abraham to do did not have to make sense to him for Abraham knew that God always honors His word. He knew that God had made him a promise that not yet come to past. Abraham may not have understood everything God had asked him to do, but he his blind faith in God didn’t require him to. Abraham did not have to see the circumstance clearly or understand the circumstance clearly for he knew God did. In all things, it pays to know God.

“For we walk by faith and not by sight.” 2 Corinthians 5:6

Below, I have listed some of the blessings, according to Deuteronomy 28, that we can expect to receive when we are obedient and in right relationship with the Lord.

  • Exaltation
  • Fruitfulness
  • Health
  • Prosperity & Success
  • Victory
  • Being the head and not the tail in life
  • Being above and not beneath in life


Child of God, many of God’s people suffer unnecessarily. As a Believer, you are just as susceptible to the effects of sin as non-believers. However, the consequences for Believers are far worse. For when you violate God’s Word, not only are you subjectin yourself and others to curses that are associated with this violation, you block the blessings that you, as a child of God, are entitled to. You also put up a barrier between you and God preventing Him from hear and answering your prayers.

“But if you will not obey the voice of the Lord your God or be careful to do all His Commandments and His statutes that I command you today, then all these curses shall come upon you and overtake you. Cursed shall you be in the city and cursed shall you be in the field.” Deuteronomy 28:15

Below, I have listed some of the curses, according to Deuteronomy 28, that can afflict when one is disobedient and falls out of right relationship with the Lord.

  • Humiliation
  • Barrenness
  • Illnesses of all kinds
  • Poverty
  • Perpetual Failure
  • Perpetual Defeat
  • Being the tail and not the head
  • Being beneath and not above


  • Mental/Emotional Breakdowns
  • Repeated or chronic illnesses (especially those that are generational and/or cannot be diagnosed by doctors.)
  • Female problems: Barrenness, repeat miscarriages, issues with menstruation, problems with female organs
  • Divorce and generational breakdowns of marriages & families
  • Perpetual financial problems
  • Being accident prone
  • A family history of suicides and unnatural deaths


If sin is allowed to remain in the life of a Believer, God will turn them over to the tormenting, supernatural, demonic power of the curse. If these curses are not broken, according to the conditions set by God, they are passed down from one generation to the other. This is called a generational curse.

Generational curses are family curses. They are the result of sin and rebellion against God.


  • Placing other gods before the one and only true God
  • Practicing idolatry – this includes all forms of the occult
  • Disrespecting/dishonoring parents
  • Deceitfulness towards your neighbor
  • Injustice towards the weak or the helpless
  • Participating in illicit or unnatural sex, including incest
  • Cursing God’s chosen ones
  • Anti-Semitism (cursing the Jewish people)
  • Knowing God but choosing to turn from Him to trust in man or self
  • Theft and lying
  • Stinginess towards God
  • Perverting the gospel of Jesus Christ
  • Falsely claiming to be a mouthpiece of God or falsely speaking on behalf of God
  • Making covenants with people who make covenants with false gods, (including affiliations with the demonic, Freemasons, Illuminati, etc.)
  • By bringing anything associated with idolatry or the occult into your house, you also bring on a curse by giving Satan right of access into your life and the lives of others under your authority.


  • Confusion/Double Mindedness
  • Depression
  • Family Illnesses & Diseases
  • Baronness, Impotence & Female Problems
  • Family Breakdowns & Divorce
  • Lack, Poverty & Unproductiveness
  • A Yoke of Debt
  • No Ambition, Vision or Direction
  • Bondage & Slavery To Sin


Curses can also come by way of spoken words, written words and words spoken inwardly by those who have authority over us. Either through relationship or authoritative position, there is power behind the words that are released in our lives. For example, husbands have authority over their wives and therefore have the power to bless, as well as curse, by their words. Fathers and mothers have authority over their children and therefore have the power to bless, as well as curse, by their words. Churches have authority over their congregation and therefore have the power to bless, as well as curse, by their words. Teachers have authority over their students and they therefore have the power to bless, as well as curse, by their words.

People also have authority over themselves and therefore have the power to self-impose blessings and curses by their own words. Be careful to thoughtfully choose what you say about yourself. Speak forth words that build-up, encourage and bless. By quoting the edifying words of scripture, you speak the words of life over yourself and others. “I shall not die, but live and declare the works of the Lord.” Psalm 118:17


Curses are not only associated with sin and words, they can also be attached to physical objects. Items such as these are forms of idolatry and are often objects of witchcraft.

Anything can be dedicated to evil for demonic purposes such as objects that have had spells cast on them as well as objects used in occult ceremonies. These objects take on dark, demonic entities that carry curses that can gain access to you, and your family, if you take possession of them and allow them into your home.


My husband and I received a ‘gift’ from friends not long ago. The gift was a framed picture of four African American people performing a ballet. After receiving the portrait, I expressed to my husband that I didn’t particularly care for it but I agreed to take possession of it because he expressed an interest in it. After we arrived home, I hung the picture in our master bathroom located inside of our bedroom. Later that afternoon, my husband and I decided to organize our bedroom closet, so he placed a large black plastic bag at the end of our bed and used it to dispose of trash. That evening, after I went to bed, my continued to clean our closet. It was during that time that he saw the ballet picture hanging on the wall and noticed demonic hand signs on the fingers of one of the women in the picture. He then removed the picture from the wall and threw it away in the black plastic bag that sat on the floor at the end of our bed. Later that night, I awoke to a very disturbing vision. I felt a dark presence in the room and when I looked up, there at the foot of our bed (where the black plastic bag had been placed), I saw four familiar spirits manifesting in the form of African Americans. They stood side by side at the foot of my bed smiling at me. I awoke my husband and told him what I had seen. He then explain to me that hours before, he had thrown the ballet picture into the black plastic bag that sat on the floor at the foot of our bed. That morning, my husband removed the picture from the bag and burned it. Afterwards, we anointed and prayed over the entire house. I never saw the spirits again.


Jesus Christ has redeemed us from the power of the curse however, we must first meet His conditions for us and our families to be delivered from its effects.

  • Identify and repent of all sin you have committed.
  • Repent on behalf of your ancestors before you and the sins they committed that were passed down.
  • Clean house by getting rid of and/or destroying every idolatrous object that carries a curse. This can include music, videos, various forms of decor, art, books, portraits, paintings, religious and ethnic artifacts, curios, collections, etc. Do your research.
  • Renounce your sin, your ancestors sin as well as everything that was in your possession and associated with Satan
  • Forgive yourself and receive God’s forgiveness in Jesus’ name.


Lord Jesus Christ, I believe You are the son of God and I believe You are the only way to God. I believe You died on the cross for my sins and I believe You rose from the dead and are now ruling at the right hand of Your Father and mine. On the cross, You were made a curse that I might be redeemed from the demonic power of the curse and enter into Your blessings. Lord, I confess all sins that were committed by me as well as by my ancestors and I ask for Your forgiveness. I forgive every person who has ever harmed me. I forgive them as I would have You forgive me. I also forgive myself. I renounce all contact with the occult and idolatry in every form, and I commit myself to getting rid of every object that is associated with them. Now, having received by faith Your forgiveness, by the authority I have in You, I and those who are under my authority are released from every curse that has come upon us. In the name of Jesus I pray. I declare it and I receive it by faith in Your name. Amen.











Last night, I had an awful dream that the end of time had come.

The trumpet had been sounded and life on Earth was done.

An Angel stood one foot on land and another foot on sea.

And as I tried to kneel and pray, a Voice said unto me,

“It’s standing room! No time for woes! It’s much too late to pray!

It’s standing room! It’s time to go! This is God’s great Judgment Day!”

People filled the churches as far as eyes could see.

I heard a cry for mercy then realized it was me.

I saw the Savior then appear as He split the Eastern sky.

There were tears of joy on a Christian’s face yet I saw the sinners cry.

I tried to touch His Holy hand and with one last feeble plea

I cried again, “Have mercy, Lord! Have mercy, Lord, on me!”

I saw a tear come to His eye as He turned my soul away.

I didn’t know Him yesterday, so He knew me not today.

The Earth was burning all around and the world went up in smoke,

And as the flames engulfed me, I thanked God that I awoke.

I got out my bed and on my knees and you should have heard me pray

For in my dream I saw the fate of God’s great Judgement Day.


  An excerpt from the testimony of Howard Pittman – author of the book, Placebo.


So, what’s your pleasure? Pornography, adultery, fornication, seduction, lasciviousness, prostitution, homosexuality, incest, strange flesh… Whatever form of sexual immorality you desire, the devil is selling it.

Human sexuality is one of the most beautiful gifts God has given His children here on Earth. Unfortunately, when sin found its way into the world, what was only reserved for the sanctity of Holy matrimony has become used and abused in every evil way immaginable.

Child of God, the bodies of Believers (followers of Jesus Christ) are the temples of the Holy Spirit. Would you tear down and destroy your own house? Of course not. Seek and strive to emulate the righteousness and holiness of the Lord with all your might and flee from sexual immorality! All other sins are committed outside of the body but he or she who commits sexual sins sin against God and their own body. (1 Corinthians 6:18)

Pagan idol worship, including that of Satan, not only took place in the biblical days, it is still alive and active today. This ungodly practice often involves perverse and immoral sexual acts (including beastiality) that are performed in ‘temples’ of false gods. Everything Satan does is for the purpose of mocking God and defiling all that is Holy. The detestable acts people engaged/engage in for pagan idol worship is no different. When a Believer uses their physical body to perform sexually immoral acts, they are imitating these pagan worship practices. They are, in essence, flaunting their sexual sin in the face of God while profaning His Holy temple with acts He considers detestable.

Beloved, once you make a conscious decision to repent and renounce sexual immorality, be done with it. Move on and seek the pleasures God has for you. However, if you find that you are not able to release this sin, you may be supporting a demonically inspired spiritual stronghold called Lust.

Why is it that so many professing Christians are giving themselves over to their sexual sin while others are able to walk away from it? There is a reason that goes deeper than many may want to admit. It will take the power you find through a relationship with Jesus Christ to deliver you. You cannot do it on your own…

The stronghold of Lust, as well as every other stronghold, is destructive. Not only will it separate you from God, it wants to gain control over your life and destroy all God has for you.  Lust is a form of idol-worship as it caters to the selfish, self-pleasing desires of the flesh. In it, you are serving self. You are not serving God. If this is you, it is imperative that you seek the Lord for deliverance from this spirit.

Do not be deceived. God cannot be mocked. A man reaps what he sows. The one who sows to please his sinful nature, from that nature, will reap destruction. The one who sows to please the Spirit, from the Spirit, will reap eternal life.”  Galatians 6:7-8


Child of God, consider this scenario…

Someone you know becomes a new follower of Jesus Christ. Not long after committing their life to the Lord, they see you out somewhere. They approach you and this is what they say: “I recently gave my life to Jesus. I wish I had known about the goodness of God years ago. It would have saved me, as well as so many others in my life, a lot of heartache, pain and sin that we all now have to account for. I have known you for quite a while and didn’t know that you were a Christian. Why didn’t you tell me about Jesus?”

Worse yet, what if this same person died in sin and you realized, much too late, that you could have made a difference in their life if you had only taken the time or the opportunity to tell them about Jesus?

Yes. YOU could have made the difference.

Do you think the Lord holds us, who are recipients of God’s grace and mercy, accountable for sharing this gift with others? Yes, He does.

Many Christians live their lives in silence choosing not to openly talk about Jesus. Neither are there many Christian willing and ready to share their testimonies about all God has done for them. Instead, they allow the ‘spirit of fear’ to close their mouths and keep them from saying anything that might cause them to be uncomfortable, ridiculed or even ostracized from family members, friends and others they know.

Here the test. If you knew God holds you responsible for not sharing the reason for the Hope that is in you, what would you do differently?

As a Christian, you are required to share your faith (the Gospel of Jesus Christ) with everyone you know. This includes family members, friends, neighbors, coworkers and others God has placed in your path? If you allow the ‘spirit of fear’ to close your mouth, the blood of these people could very well be on your hands.

Child of God, you are crucial to God’s plan here on this Earth. You play a very important part in the destruction of Satan as well as the salvation of others. The Bible tells us that we (Christians) have conquered Satan by the blood of the Lamb (Jesus Christ) and by the word of our testimony. This means God will hold you accountable for not doing your part. Jesus has given all of His followers the responsibility and the privilege to take part in the Great Commission which instructs His disciples (you and I) to go out and make other disciples of all the nations. We are to do this through ministry, evangelism and baptism. This is impossible to achieve with a closed mouth.

Beloved, we are not saved simply so that we can avoid Hell and go to Heaven. If this were so, God would take us Home immediately upon receiving Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior. We are saved, empowered by the authority of Jesus Christ then filled with the Holy Spirit, not for the fun of it, but because we have a job to do. That job consists of playing a part in the saving of others. This starts with the sharing of your testimony of God’s goodness.

No, you are not responsible for saving anyone. Only God can do that. Some of us are assigned to plant the seed while others are assigned to water that plant. Only God can cause the growth. He calls those who will come to Him and the decision to receive that call lies solely with those people. However, you play an active role in God’s sovereign plan to usher in His Kingdom that is to come. Be not passive in your walk with Jesus. It should be an honor – not a burden – to share Him with others. If you love God’s people – and as a Christian you should – love them enough to want them saved. Love them enough to give them the only One who can make that possible. Jesus.

Fear is a demonic stronghold and it is a spirit that falls under the rule of Satan. Do not let it control you. Fear will convince you that the thoughts and words of the people in this world are more important than the call God has on your life. Be encouraged, for “greater is He who is in you than he who is in this world.”

Well, now that you know, what are you going to do differently?


“Then I heard a loud voice from the temple saying to the seven angels, “Go and pour out the bowls of the wrath of God on the Earth.”” Revelations 16:1

Child of God, be assured that we ARE LIVING IN THE LAST DAYS before the tribulation which is referenced in Revelation, Chapters 16-19.  Take heed to what the Lord has to say…

I feel an urgency in my spirit to repost this dream, and its message, which was given to me on Wednesday, October 26th, 2016 at 2:30 A.M. This dream forewarns of God’s judgement and wrath to come in the last days that will precede the return of Jesus Christ. It also speaks of God’s provision given for His children. Though rough times are surely ahead for all true Christians, be encouraged for God has made a way for those who love Him, follow Him and obey Him.

“And I saw the beast, the kings of the earth, and their armies gathered together to make war against Him who sat on the horse and against His army.” Revelation 19:19

I dreamt that I was walking alone through a vast and desolate land that was barren as far as I could see. I continued to walk when to my left suddenly appeared an army of soldiers on horseback. The army were racing forward with swords drawn as if running into battle. As I looked at the army, the Lord made it known to me that I was seeing the ‘world’s army.’ He also made it known to me that the ‘world’s army’ had control over the people of this world for they feared its power. However, as I looked at the ‘world’s army’, I felt no fear for I am not of this world, and I continued to walk.

And the Armies in Heaven, clothed in fine linen white and clean, followed Him on white horses. Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron.” Revelation 19:14-15

Suddenly, to the left of the ‘world’s army’ appeared another Army. This Army was also on horseback racing forward with swords drawn as if running into battle. However, I saw that this Army was different. The Lord made it known to me that this was a spiritual Army – not visible to most in this world – and yet I was able to see them. The Lord made it known to me that this was God’s Army!

Then I saw a few soldiers from the ‘world’s army’ turn their heads to their left to look upon God’s Army, for they could also see. (The enemy and his demons are here in this world and have access to unsaved people. They dwell in the spiritual realm and can recognize that which is also in the spiritual realm.”)  Then they turned their heads away from God’s Army for they had disregard for those Holy things of God.

As I looked upon God’s Army, I began to feel an urgency in my spirit. The Lord then impressed upon me to immediately run to seek shelter and safety for imminent destruction by His hand was sure to come. So I looked to my right and immediately I saw a small building that had not been there before. I was moved to run towards the building as fast as I could. As I approached the building, I was tempted to hesitate for I feared that the door would be locked. Yet, I continued to run towards the building and up the steps towards the front door. I turned the door knob and to my surprise, I found that the door was unlocked. I opened the door and saw people on the ground floor but, I was moved to immediately run up the stairs as fast as I could to the top floor. The moment my feet reach the top floor, I heard a massive explosion. At that moment, it was made known to me that everything outside of that building had been destroyed. As I looked at the people on the ground floor of the building, I saw that many had been gravely injured and some had even been killed. I knew immediately that God had delivered me through it all!

It was then made known to me that God alone had given me the revelation concerning the two armies. It was made known to me that God alone had prompted me to run – and not walk – to seek shelter and safety. It was made known to me that God alone had provided the provision that was not there before. It was made known to me that God alone had opened the locked door. It was made known to me that God alone had guided me to the top of the stairs. It was made known to me that all these things were done for me by God alone.

Then it was made known to me that had I not BELIEVED God’s Word, had I not RECEIVED God’s Word and had I not OBEYED God’s Word, I would NOT have survived.

Child of God, all these things were shown to me and made known to me for my good and for yours. KNOW that Jesus’ return is imminent. KNOW that the days that will precede Him will not be easy. KNOW that those whose lives are not lined up with the Word of God will not survive. Regardless of what you see and hear in this world, KNOW that your truth must be God’s truth. KNOW that EVERYTHING is and always will be in God’s hands. KNOW that your life will depend on your OBEDIENCE.

This message is for those who have eyes to see and ears to hear.


“For you formed my inward parts; You knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise You for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are Your works; my soul knows it very well. My frame was not hidden from You when I was being made in secret…” Psalm 139:13-16

For a Christian, the choice of abortion is not a matter of a woman’s right to choose. It is clearly a matter of death to those whom God has made in His image.

It is not for me to enter into a discussion that covers all the different scenarios that one may believe justifies an abortion. It is for me however, to make perfectly clear that the act of abortion is considered murder in God’s eyes, and murder is a sin. Although this may be an accepted practice to man, it is not acceptable to God.

Child of God, we have all made mistakes. We have all sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Whether this was a past mistake or a recent error in judgement, know that God loves you so much that He has made a way out for you. He has made a way for all who are truly repentant and choose to sin no more.

Remember, all unconfessed sin gives the enemy the right to access your life as well as the lives of your family. When  the opportunity presents itself, he will, by all means, take full advantage of that opened door. For his only desire is to kill, steal and destroy us.

Generational curses are also something to be concerned about. These are curses that are passed down from one generation to another due to sin. Child of God, as a Christian, you have the right and the authority to cancel these curses. This is a process called deliverance.

If you have ever had an abortion, encouraged or paid for an abortion, participated in an abortion, performed an abortion or played any part in an abortion, remember that YOU CAN BE FORGIVEN through Jesus Christ, our Lord.

All sin can be forgiven if only you are willing to humble yourself and confess your sin, permanently turn from it and ask the Lord for forgiveness.

DO NOT DELAY. Many people are spending eternity in Hell for sin they are continuing to commit as well as for sin they have never repented for. DO NOT LET THIS BE YOU.

This message is for those who have eyes to see and ears to hear.


In the month of November, 2016, my husband and I attended a local church service near our home. As we stood in the sanctuary for praise and worship, I could not help but notice a teenage boy, around the age of 15 or 16, and his mother standing in the row in front of us. I couldn’t help but be drawn to the boy for he was coughing incessantly. So much so that it was almost disruptive. Occasionally, the boy’s mother would look over at him but yet said nothing to him about his coughing.

Suddenly, I heard the Lord speak to me. “Lay your hand on the boy,” He said. I hesitated for a moment for I questioned whether I had heard correctly for this was only the second time I can remember the Lord Himself telling me to lay hands on someone.

It was in 2001 when I witnessed that amazing miracle. In a room full of people, I felt the power of God burn in my chest after I was moved, by God, to lay hands on a woman. After I obeyed His command, I witnessed a healing miracle and God healed this woman from a debilitating lung condition called sarcoidosis.

In this situation concerning the boy in the church, I thought to myself, “If I am mistaken, I could bring unwanted negative attention to myself.” For I didn’t know this boy nor did I know his mother. And in this day and age, you really do have to be careful especially where children are concerned.

So, I immediately responded and said to God. “Lord, I don’t know these people and if I were the mother of this boy, I would be upset if a stranger put their hands on my young son.” I waited a moment for an answer, but the Lord did not respond. Not wanting to be disobedient, I quickly thought of a way to lay my hands on the boy without it appearing to be inappropriate. I decided to take a tissue out of my purse to hand to the boy for he was still coughing excessively. This way, I thought, I could still lay my hands on him and do it in an inconspicuous manner.

But God is so amazing and such a loving God. He understands when we are simply wanting confirmation that it is, in fact, Him speaking to us and not the enemy. He knows that we have to be careful for Satan is so cunning. He knows that we must be able to discern the difference between what is of Him and what is not. For this reason, and so many more, it is imperative that we have an intimate relationship with the Lord. Only then, are we able to communicate with Him and know that He will answer us when we call on Him.

While reaching into my purse to get the tissue, I spoke once again to the Lord. “Lord, if this is really You asking me to do this, can You please give me a sign?” Right about this time, the praise and worship music stopped and the worship leader asked everyone in the congregation to turn to their neighbor and greet them. Immediately, even almost mechanically, the boy who was standing directly in front of me (and still coughing) turned around and extended his right hand to greet me. I thanked God for the sign and said a silent prayer as I cupped the boys hand with my two hands then handed him the tissue.

The mother, after seeing me hand her son the tissue, took the hint and told her son to go to the restroom. A little while later, he returned and sat down. I noticed that the boy had stopped coughing. I then heard the Lord say, “Pray for the children.” I watched the teenage boy throughout the remainder of the service and he never coughed again.

The Lord has since asked me to lay hands on other children as well as God is calling to Himself a remnant of youth who will rise up against the evil in this world in these last days. His mark is upon them. These are children who will faithfully follow the Lord and defend His word. These are children who are fearless and who God has anointed to boldly speak out against evil and its apostasy. These are children who need our continuous prayer, support and discipleship for a mighty attack from the enemy has also risen up against them.

The enemy knows that his time is short and he is leaving no stone unturned in his attempts to destroy God’s remnant. The enemy’s attacks are relentless and evidence of it can be seen everywhere. His diabolical plans include trying to destroy God’s children even before their conception. We see this in the ever-increasing forms of birth control that are in the market today. The widespread acceptance of abortion also bear his fingerprints.

Satan is also using all forms of entertainment in this world, which he has corrupted, to attract our children. For it is his intent to turn the children away from God by poisoning their minds. The enemy is no respecter of age. His attacks are against babies on up. We can clearly see the enemy’s lies and deception in our children’s books, games, music, television, movies and advertisements. We can also see Satan’s influence in our children’s education. Parents, beware and be careful of what you allow your children to be exposed to and influenced by. Always be on guard. Stay involved with your children. Teach them the difference between right and wrong according to God’s word, not the world. Demonstrate for your children how to stand strong and resolute in this evil world that we live in. “Train up a child up in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”  Proverbs 22:6 This is a promise given to us from God.

Church, always pray without ceasing and take heed to what thus sayeth the Lord: “Pray for the children.”


Is following Jesus just too hard? Yes, it is not only too hard, it is impossible. But, for Christians who have the Spirit of God resident inside of them, it is not too difficult for God’s power is at work.

There are many who flippantly excuse the sin in their lives. The sad truth is that they also believe God excuses them as well. They say things like: “God knows my heart.” God does not expect me to be perfect.” “I’m only human.” “I can’t be holy for I’m not God.”

If holiness was impossible for us to achieve, God would not have made it a requirement. For the Word telIs us: “Without holiness no one will see the Lord.” Hebrews 12:14

God is inherently holy and it is true that, in and of ourselves, we are not. However, we can become holy through a true relationship with and obedience to Jesus Christ. This pursuit of holiness begins immediately after we dedicate our lives to Jesus. Upon becoming His born-again followers, God requires us to cultivate a lifestyle of holiness (1 Peter 1:14-16). Then, as we mature spiritually in our walk with Jesus, our ability to obtain and maintain holiness increases.

What does it mean to cultivate a lifestyle of holiness? It means that we willingly go through a process of purging ourselves of all uncleanness from the flesh, the soul and the spirit. In this, our lives begin to outwardly and inwardly reflect an increase of spiritual growth and a decrease of a desire for the things of this world. However, we live in a world surrounded by evil and sin therefore, there is not a one-time fix. In our daily pursuit of holiness, it is necessary for us to continuously confess and forsake sin. As we do this, we perfect our holiness in the fear of God (2 Corinthians 7:1).

Child of God, if you are struggling in the area of holiness, seek God for the infilling of the Holy Spirit. For without Him, holiness which is righteousness in God’s eyes will be impossible for you to achieve. However, be mindful that the Holy Spirit will not dwell inside of an unclean vessel. If there is sin in your life, you must remove that sin and go through the process of repentance and deliverance. As the power of God will not work if there is a barrier between you and the Lord. The good news is that you, as a child of God, have all the tools you need to remove these barriers. Use them. There is no time to waste. You are called to be about the work.

“May God Himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. The One who calls you is faithful and He will do it.” I Thessalonians 5:23-24

This message is for those who have eyes to see and ears to hear.


Not long ago, my husband and I were at the home of friends of ours and received a ‘gift’ from them. They were moving to another state and thought we might like to have it. This gift was a painting that depicted four African American ballet dancers – three women and a man. Later, on the way home, I expressed to my husband that I didn’t particularly care for the picture. On the other hand however, my husband liked the painting so reluctantly I agreed to keep it. After we arrived home, I decided to hang the painting in a small room near our bedroom. A day or so later, my husband and I decided to organize our master bedroom closet. So he placed a large, black trash bag at the foot of our bed and we both began to dispose of things that we no longer wanted or needed. Later, I went to bed early and left my husband to continue working on our closet.

Later that evening, my husband saw the ballet painting I had hung on the wall in the room that was near our bedroom. Yet, when he looked a little closer, he saw something in the painting that neither of us had noticed before, and what he saw disturbed him. On the hand of one of the women in the painting, he noticed what appeared to be a demonic hand sign – one of many satanic symbols the Lord had only recently revealed to us. He decided to dispose of the painting so without telling me, he threw it away in the large, black trash bag that had been placed at the end of our bed.

At some point in the middle of that night, I awoke but recognized I was in a strange, dream-like state however, I was wide awake. There was a feeling of darkness in the room. The feeling I had was very different from the many dreams and visions I have had from the Lord. My head was on my pillow laying on the right side. I opened my eyes and lifted my head to look forward and there, at the foot of our bed, was a gloomy, almost transparent vision of what appeared to be four African American figures – three women and what may have been a man at the far end. The woman on the far right, who stood directly in front of me at the foot of the bed, smiled at me and appeared to look like a dear cousin  who had died several years earlier – this was a familiar spirit.

I struggled for a moment trying to arouse myself from what I initially thought was a nightmare. After a minute or two, clarity returned to the room and the darkness I could feel left me. The four figures I saw also disappeared. Not sure of what I had just seen, I woke my husband and explained everything to him. He was stunned. After a moment or so, he began to tell me about what he had seen the evening before on the hand of one of the ballet dancers in the painting, and how he had thrown the painting into the large black trash bag that sat at the foot of our bed that sat in the exact location where I saw the four African American figures only moments before. It was then apparent to both of us that the four figures I had seen at the foot of our bed were not people. They were evil spirits disguised as people.

Immediately, my husband got out of bed, took the painting out of the large, black trash bag and went outside into our backyard. There he broke the painting into pieces and burned all of it. Afterwards, together we prayed and asked God for forgiveness for bringing the acursed thing into our home. Then we anointed every room and prayed to bind the enemy, in Jesus’ name, from entering our home again. We never saw the evil spirits again.

In all of this, I give God the glory. For prior to this incident, the Lord had prepared us. He has been revealing to us and teaching us many things concerning spiritual warfare that includes demon possession, cursed and demonically charged objects as well as other forms of spiritual warfare such as cursed forms of entertainment and media of all kinds including demonically-inspired music, television shows, Hollywood movies and even children’s animation.

Child of God, demons and evil spirits are real and it is crucial that you not only keep yourself pure and Holy but also keep your home pure and Holy as well. Be careful what you allow your eyes to see and your ears to hear. And be very careful what you bring into your home, i.e. music, movies, art, etc. Demons attach themselves to whatever and whoever has been demonically cursed. When you expose yourself to these things, you have given the enemy the right to access your life and the lives of your family. Once entry has been gained, the enemy can – and will – use anything and anyone to try and kill, steal and destroy you and yours.

Child of God, if you have not already done so, it is time to clean house!

This message is for those who have eyes to see and ears to hear.


My light is taken over and the darkness covers all.

Swollen clouds are hovering as the drops begin to fall.

Dismal skies bring somber eyes and the fullness brings the rain

As sorrows, through a hazy view, stream down my window pane.


The rhythm of my heartbeat meets my heavy soul’s release.

A silent storm is raging and it’s pain begins to feast.

Thunder is my anger and it’s lightning strikes my mind.

A binding wind is blowing cold for I’ve failed the test of time.


Yet, Your canopy extends to me against an air so bleak.

Your branches touch my weary soul and nudge me on to seek.

In a clearing, I see shelter with a Light that shines within.

Amidst the pour, You’re the open door that forgives me of my sin.

It is written in Revelations 20:15 that those whose names are not found recorded in the Book of Life will be hurled into the Lake of Fire.

Is your name recorded in the Book of Life? If you are not sure, seek God. He is willing to forgive you of all your sins no matter what you have done. He is the only One who can purify you from all unrighteousness. You only need to seek Him and ask for His forgiveness. You may do this by sincerely praying this prayer:

Lord Jesus, I have sinned against You. I repent of and permanently turn away from all of my sins. Please forgive me and free me from all evil and wickedness. Loose me from all curses. Cleanse me from all unrighteousness and write my name in The Book of Life. Lord Jesus, I am asking that You dwell in my life forever and seal me with Your Holy Spirit. It is in Your name that I pray this prayer. Amen.


The Word of God is like a captive lion. It must be released for it to operate in the fullness of its power and it is only then that you see it is perfectly capable of defending itself against anything and anyone.

God’s Word is not just a book full of inspirational characters and stories. God’s Word is true and alive. “And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only Begotten of the Father,) full of grace and truth.” John 1:14

Child of God, truly the words you speak forth (and even think) have the ability to curse you and hold you captive or it can release the power of God in your life. Most people speak careless words of failure and fear not realizing that they are doing themselves and others harm. There are spiritual laws that God has put into place that govern the universe. When you work against these laws, they will work against you. There is power released in the spiritual realm everytime we open our mouths and speak.

When you speak negative words concerning yourself, your life, your family, your loved ones, your job and even your financial situation, you are speaking the words of the enemy. When you do this, you are giving the enemy a legal right to step into and operate within your life. They then have the right to make sure that you have what you say.

On the other hand, when you speak forth life-giving Words of God, angels rush to fulfil them. When you speak words that are contrary to the Words of God, you are binding the angels from moving on your behalf. Saying words like “Nothing ever works out for me” or  “I never have any money” or “I am so stupid” hinders angels from doing what they were created to do which is to serve you, the true follower of Jesus Christ.

God wants to bless every area of your life but, there are principles that must be adhered to before He is able to do so. When you choose to operate within these principles, you are essentially choosing life over death, prosperity over poverty and health over sickness. This is not just an exercise of positive thinking. This is a true demonstration of how to activate and release God’s power into your life. If your situation does not reflect God’s best, it is better to say nothing until you see a change manifest than it is to speak negative words that will continue to bind and curse you as well as others.

What are these life-changing principles? At the top of the list, I must stress that holiness, obedience, purity of heart and commitment to Jesus Christ is a prerequisite for all power and authority over the enemy. You must listen to and obey God’s every word. Honor God with your life through every decision you make. Learn God’s Word for yourself by reading your Bible. Agree with all that God says about you and your circumstances. Always speak forth God’s Word concerning those circumstances, regardless of what you see. Be patient and wait on God and watch your life transform and begin to line up with God’s good and perfect will.

This message is for those who have eyes to see and ears to hear.


Child of God, time is winding down…

Whether referencing Jesus’ return to this world or your departure to His, the following words should be on your mind more now than ever before: “No man knows the day nor the hour.”

Death is not a respecter of person. Nor does it care about your age. Young or old, the breath you are breathing this very moment could very well be your last. Don’t fall for the lie that has sent many to Hell. I am speaking of the lie that tells you that once you have given your life to Jesus Christ, regardless of what you do, you are saved from eternal damnation forever. This walk is a daily walk. Your disobedience can cause you to lose your salvation at any moment. Do not remain in your sin. It is separating you from God. God is Holy and He demands that you strive to also be Holy. He cannot accept you any other way. The relationship we have with God is based on His high and Holy criteria, not ours. Do not think that you can cheapen Him by trying to pull Him down to your level. If you have convinced yourself that you can, you are deceived.

It is time for all prodigal sons and daughters to make their way back home. Repent of your rebellion. Repent of your sin. Return into the loving, caring, protective and forgiving arms of your Heavenly Father.

Sometimes, we need a helping hand from someone who truly cares. If this is you and you would like someone to talk to you and pray with you concerning this, contact me and I will reach out to you.

This message is for those who have eyes to see and ears to hear.


The evening of May 12th 2017, the Lord gave me a dream of warning that I entitled The Landlord which was given to me to share with His people. Six days later, on the evening of May 18th, 2017, the Lord gave me yet another dream of warning…

In this dream, God showed me one word: IMMINENT.

IMMINENT means ‘impending,’ ‘about to happen’ and ‘close at hand.’ Though no man knows the day or the hour of Jesus’ return, God is giving us hints. The Lord is giving us more than ample warning that time is winding down and drawing ever so near. No one will have an excuse when their time comes to go before Him for judgment.

Child of God, do not become complacent. Do not allow the talk of Jesus’ return to make you numb. Although God is a loving and patient God, although God is compassionate and slow to anger, God is also an all-consuming fire whose wrath burns hot and furious. It is not man who is telling you, “Jesus is returning soon.” It is God saying to you, the return of Jesus is “imminent”! The return of Jesus is impending! The return of Jesus is about to happen! The return of Jesus is close at hand! Repent! Get your house in order. Dispose of all your trash and debris. Clean your Holy temple where the Holy Spirit resides.

Messages of warnings from the Lord are becoming more and more frequent. Heed the voice of the Lord. God is speaking to you Church. There will come a time when He will cease speaking. When that time comes, He will turn away from those who refuse to listen. He will turn His face from the sinners. All will be lost to them. There will be no hope for them. He will give them over to the hardness of a reprobate mind and see them eternally as godless, rejected, worthless and evil. Scripture tells us of that perilous time when the world will consist primarily of perilous men. In those last days,  “men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power.” And we are warned: “from such people turn away! For of this sort are those who creep into households and make captives of gullible women loaded down with sins, led away by various lusts, always learning and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth… men of corrupt minds, disapproved concerning the faith.”  (2 Timothy 3:1-9)

Do you not know that judgment will begin at the house of God and if it begins with us, woe to those who do not obey the Lord. (1 Peter 4:17)


On May 13th, the Lord gave me a dream… God is reaching out to His people in these last days. Messages such as does given through dreams and visions seen by His Prophets, He is preparing and warning the Church body of Jesus’ imminent return.

In this dream, I saw myself managing a multi-family community. In the community, there were many buildings. In each building were two single-story apartments on the left – one on the top-level and the other on the lower-level – and one two-story townhouse on the right. I saw myself going from building to building examining the front doors and the back patios of each apartment and townhouse looking for trash and debris. At those dwellings, I left a notice that included a warning. The warning informed the people who live there that I would be returning soon but on an unspecified date. The warning also informed them that when I returned, I would be imposing a penalty on those choosing to remain in violation. This penalty would include an extremely heavy fine.

Some of the people were obedient and heeded the warning by cleaning up their dwelling place. Some were complacent not thinking it important and did nothing. Others were angry and wanted to know why they couldn’t do exactly what they wanted for it was their life and they felt they should be able to live it exactly the way they chose. I explained to them that they would not live in this place forever. I told them that eventually they would want to move on to an amazing brand New Place. I further explained that when that time came, this New Place would call on me for a reference. The reference I would give them would speak on their behalf. I continued to explain that their compliance in this place will determine the type of reference I gave. I made it clear that at that time, if they received a good reference from me, they would be approved for the New Place and only then would they be able to enter into it. If they received a bad reference on the other hand, they would be rejected and denied entry into the amazing New Place. Furthermore, they would be forced to live in a horrible place that was not fit for any person to live in. I then awoke from this dream.

In this dream, God showed me that I was representing Jesus, the Master Property Manager. The buildings in this dream represented all the places in the world. The apartments and townhouses represented three categories of people. The lower-level apartments represented those who are considered the least in this world. The upper-level apartments represented those who are considered just above the least in this world. The two-story townhouses represented those who have done well in this world. Each dwelling place represented a life and the front doors to each dwelling place represented everything about our life that is visibly seen by others. The back patios at each dwelling place represented everything about our life that we try to hide from others – even though nothing is hidden from God. Jesus has access to it all.

In this dream, it was clear that the Lord is no respecter of persons for it showed everyone being grouped together in one place and expected to live according to the same rules. No one was allowed preferential treatment. Everyone was judged exactly the same. The trash and debris in this dream represented the sin and disobedience in our lives. We know that the penalty for sin and disobedience is death which is, indeed, a heavy price to pay. Only a few will be approved while many will be rejected from entering into the amazing New Place, which is God’s Heavenly Kingdom, for many will reject the Master Property Manager, who is Jesus Christ, and His word. However, these people WILL gain acceptance and entrance into a different place – a horrible place called Hell.

Child of God, are you violating God’s word? Is your life still cluttered with sin and disobedience? Will you receive a good reference from Jesus or a bad one? Will you be approved or rejected from entering into the amazing New Place? Do uou know where you will go when you leave this place?

“Indeed, the Sovereign Lord never does anything until He reveals His plans to His servants the prophets. The lion has roared – so who isn’t frightened? The Sovereign Lord has spoken – so who can refuse to proclaim His message?” Amos 3:7-8 (NLT)

In 2008, the Lord gave me two open visions. One was felt physically and the other was seen visually. At the close of 2016, the Lord gave me a third.

An open vision is different from a vision. A vision gives you divine revelation by sight but your role is passive in this type of vision. Here, you are only an observer. However, in an open vision your role is more dynamic. Here, you may not only be shown something visually, you actually become a part of the vision as you are able to interact with it. In an open vision, You have the ability to see, smell, hear, taste and feel what is happening around you.

All three open visions were divine revelations from God revealing to me warnings of imminent earthquakes that are coming soon to certain areas of the United States…


In 2008, my husband and I went out to eat at a local restaurant not far from our home. The weather was beautiful that day and nothing was out of the ordinary. As we began to eat, I suddenly felt the ground – in the restaurant – violently shake beneath my feet. Of course, I stopped eating and quickly looked around me to see what was happening. Again, nothing looked out of the ordinary and it appeared to me that no one else had experienced what I had just felt. I then looked at my husband and asked him if he had also felt the ground shaking and he replied that he had not. I excused myself from the table and went to the ladies room. I noticed that I was alone, so I stood there for a moment or two trying to process what had just happened to me. Eventually, I returned to my table and finished my meal. My husband and I then left the restaurant and returned home.


A few days later, I had another open vision. What I saw was a full-color scene that had been superimposed over what my natural eyes were actually seeing… I was alone in my living room watching a television program when suddenly what I was seeing changed before my eyes. What appeared to me was an unknown woman announcer and a weather broadcast. It looked as if I was watching the Weather Channel. I saw the woman standing on the left side of the screen with a long, narrow pointing stick in her hand. She was pointing to two columns that were listed on a wall to the right while she warned of eminent earthquakes that were soon to come.

In each column, I saw a list of cities/states that were located all over the United States. I would only be guessing if I tried to recall those cities and states, so I won’t go there. However, I have come to the conclusion that the Lord did not intend for me to remember this information. For if He had, He would have seared them into my memory. At the time that I received this vision, I believe it was given to me for the purpose of warning, preparation and awareness.

Not realizing at the time that what I had seen was a vision, (for my call had not been confirmed yet) I became alarmed and immediately went to ask my husband if he had heard the news about the pending earthquakes. He had no idea what I was talking about. When I returned to the living room to show him what I had seen, the vision of the weather broadcast was gone and the original programming had returned.

I couldn’t believe it. I knew what I had seen and heard so I proceeded to search the television news channels, as well as the Internet, looking for information concerning these earthquakes however, I found nothing. Then, I was immediately reminded of the ‘shaking’ I had experienced only days before in the restaurant. Not understanding any of this at the time, the only thing I could do was pray, journal what I had experienced and ponder it all.

I now fast-forward to today. Only a few months ago, I received yet another vision. Upon closing of my eyes one evening while I lay in bed, I saw a date flash before my eyes. The date revealed to me a spelled out month, a numerical day and a numerical year and then began to violently shake from side to side for just a moment. Then I opened my eyes and it was gone. I was not allowed to remember the exact date I saw. I only remember the experience. Again, I believe all three of these open visions have been revealed to me for the purpose of warning, preparation and awareness. However, now I am being led to inform you.

I believe the Lord is bringing this information back to me to inform me that the time is drawing near. Why is God allowing devastating earthquakes to happen, you may ask? Very simply, it is because of sin in the land. Unless the people repent and cry out to God with sustained change in their hearts, this and even more devastating judgment will come.

I know that not all states will be affected by this earthquake. I have been given dreams about a location that He may be leading me and my family. I am still in prayer about it and I am waiting for His confirmation. I believe there will be places of sanctuary for those who know the Lord and hear His voice. Child of God, I pray that you also seek God concerning this. He will confirm it and guide your actions. I will be in continuous prayer concerning the time-frame of these earthquakes as well as the states these earthquakes are due to hit so that I can warn and prepare His people. Please pray.

Most importantly, I am asking that you repent of your sin and ask for mercy. Again, God is looking for sustained change from His people before He will relent.

In all things, to God be the glory.






Allow me to be quite frank here: All Hell has broken loose and its aim is at your children. Now, what are you going to do about it?

As you must know, Satan is the temporary god of this world. Therefore, you can believe that he has his hand in everything concerning it. Your focus may be on many things in this life however, you must know that Satan’s focus is unrelenting and is on one thing and one thing only: How to kill, steal and destroy – this especially applies to our children. If the enemy is after your children, where do you think he orchestrates his plans of deception and corruption? Let’s talk about this.


Of course you are aware of the many traps he sets in this world to ensnare our youth using drugs, alcohol and sexual immorality, right? Well, are you aware of the enemy’s control over the media? Do you know that Hollywood (with all of its acclaimed indoctrination into every form of witchcraft and the occult), and everyone involved in it, are all puppets in the enemy’s hand? How about the music industry with all its demonic curses and satanic rituals? Are you aware of this? And then there are the industries of advertising,  fashion and pornography. You have to know that these industries thrive on the exploitation of our youth. And let’s not forget the video games – do we really need to go there? Oh, and let me throw one into the loop that you might not be aware of – or maybe you are. Can everyone say (so-called) secret societies i.e. the Masons and the Illuminati? What about the generational curses that have been passed down to the children as the result of their parents’ (and their parents before them, etc.) association with these affiliations? How about your children’s education? I’ll bet you weren’t aware that Satan also goes to school – or maybe you are. Let’s just pause right here for a moment.

You know that our schools today are programming our children to believe and accept everything that goes against the word of God, right? I am sure that this is no surprise to you. Of course this includes teachings such as false theories of evolution, the acceptance of gender changing and the embracing of the homosexual agenda – just to name a few. But are you aware that the educators that are teaching your children are now permitting Satanic education and allowing Satanic clubs into the schools? Hmmm, maybe you weren’t aware of that one. SATAN IS TRYING TO DESTROY YOUR CHILDREN – no holds barred. His intent is to leave nothing to chance.

Child of God, how are you going to counteract this attack? Now, that I have your attention, let’s talk about that.


The Bible tells us that we (the children of God) are to be in the world but not of the world. So, we are not expected to live in a bubble or hide under a rock. However, we are expected to walk in the authority that’s been given to us by the power we have in Jesus Christ. Are you doing that? Let’s talk some more.

First and foremost, you must PRAY for your children every day – if not multiple times throughout the day because they need it. Then, you must take everything you know (and possibly don’t know) about spiritual warfare very seriously. For the fight that is upon us is truly a matter of life and death – especially where your children are concerned. What’s next? Okay, let’s talk about something else you may not take very seriously – your WORDS.

I know you have heard this said plenty of times before but now, I really want you to listen. THERE IS POWER IN THE WORDS THAT WE SPEAK. Be careful about what you say to your children and be careful about what you think about your children. For as soon as your words leave your mouth, something happens in the spiritual realm. Now, just because you don’t see it, doesn’t mean it isn’t there. If you speak negative, hurtful words to your children, you are speaking curses over your children. When you do this, you open a door for the demonic to come into the life of your child. This gives authority to the demons and they take those words and run with them, using them against your child in every way they possibly can. Think about it. We all know people who continue to struggle with something that was said to them, as a child, by someone who was in authority over them? Maybe this is you.

Likewise, the same thing happens when you speak positive, encouraging words to your children. Only now, you have spoken words that bless your child and IF you have the authority of Jesus Christ – and you MUST be in good standing with Him for this to work God will honor what you say. When you walk in His authority, you can actually operate in a principle called binding and loosing: “Truly I tell you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.” Matthew 18:18 – and God will honor what you say. I don’t know about you, but I would much rather speak blessings over my children than curses. The good news is now that you know this, IF you are operating under the authority of Jesus Christ, you can break these curses – both off of yourself as well as your children.

Now for the fun part. You (as a child of God) must cover your children in your home by practicing godly parenting. Parents, DO NOT leave biblical teaching and the training up of your children to the schools and the churches. You must take responsibility for instilling an uncompromising biblical mindset – even as early as in the womb and most definitely from birth. So, how do you enforce Christian parenting?

I’m so glad you asked…

  • Commit your life to Jesus Christ.
  • You must put God first in your own life before you can require it of your child. Then live it, don’t just talk it.
  • Show your children how to live in ‘pursuit of holiness’ and set an example for them to live by.
  • Don’t compromise – even in the small things. For your child is watching everything you do.
  • Commit to a godly marriage and choose your dates (which will lead to your mate) accordingly.
  • Nurture your children in a godly household, i.e. be mindful of what is entering their ear-gate as well as their eye-gate. Also be mindful of the people you allow them to interact with. You can’t control what goes on in the world but you can control what goes on in your home.
  • Train your child up in the way they should go by teaching them the words of the Bible. (Proverbs 22:6)
  • Encourage an intimate relationship with Jesus by sharing your testimony with your children.
  • Teach your children to pray – about everything.
  • Don’t be afraid to engage them in dialogues of real truth concerning everything. Truth is not subjective. Truth is absolute – and according to the word of God.
  • Teach them to make independent decisions based on the word of God. Walking this walk is not for the faint of heart. It can be a lonely journey at times. If your child buys in to group-think, they will never make it. For what they, themselves believe WILL be challenged.
  • Lovingly and consistently discipline your children.
  • Forgive your children when they fall and when they fail – for they most definitely will.
  • Love your children unconditionally – always.
  • Bathe your children daily in prayer.

The Lord holds you, the parent, responsible for giving proper instruction to your child. You will be held responsible until your child reaches the age of accountability. When will that be, you may ask? Only God knows for sure. However, we do know that this age is determined by the child’s ability to truly distinguish the difference between what is right and what is wrong. If you are wondering if children can go to Hell, the answer is YES. Now that you have been warned, what are you going to do?

The Lord has been impressing upon me for a time to continuously pray for the children. I invite you to join me in this, for the life of your child may depend on it.

In all things, to God be the glory.




























































“For this is what the Lord of Heaven’s Armies says: In just a little while I will again shake the Heavens and the Earth, the oceans and the dry land. I will shake all the nations,…”  Haggai 2:6-7


Child of God, look around you. Do you not see the signs and wonders that are appearing in the Heavens and on the Earth, on the land and in the sea, in the Church and within the people? God is shaking ALL things for God’s judgment is nigh and is even now upon us.

Do not be surprised or alarmed for all that is taking place must take place as it was foretold by the Prophets of old. Instead, take notice, heed the warings of God and prepare yourse for the Lord says, “I will shake all things.”


Why is God judging the world? Jesus spoke of this before He ascended into Heaven. He said:  “And when He (the Holy Spirit) comes, He will convict the world of its sin, and of God’s righteousness, and of the coming judgement. The world’s sin is that it refuses to believe in Me. Righteous- ness is available because I go to the Father, and you will see Me no more. Judgement will come because the ruler of this world (Satan) has already been judged. ” John 16:8-11

“The Earth suffers for the sins of its people, for they have twisted God’s instructions, violated His laws, and broken His everlasting covenant. Therefore, a curse consumes the Earth. Its people must pay the price for their sin.” Isaiah 24:5-6

Because the people are evil, prideful and disobedient to God, they will be judged. Because the people have ignored God’s righteous statutes and have sinned against God, they will be judged. Because of the wicked hearts of the people, they have corrupted the institution of marriage and family, and they will be judged. Because the people have broken the covenant God made with mankind through the shed blood of Jesus Christ, they will be judged. We see the world and its people progressively deteriorating as they fall deeper and deeper into sin. God is not pleased and His wrath is burning hot. Therefore, the world will be judged.

This great shaking will initiate universal upheaval and change that will ultimately bring about the destruction of “evil rulers, authorities, powers of darkness and spiritual forces in the Heavenly realms.” (see Ephesians 6:12)


“So why do you keep calling Me ‘Lord, Lord!’ when you do not do what I say? I will show you what it’s like when someone comes to Me, listens to My teaching, and then follows it. It is like a person building a house who digs deep and lays the foundation on solid rock. When the floodwaters rise and break against that house, it stands firm because it is well built. But anyone who hears and does not obey is like a person who builds a house right on the ground without a foundation. When the floods sweep down against that house, it will collapse into a heap of ruins.” Luke 6:46-49

The great shaking will affect everything and everyone. It will tear apart marriages, families and relationships. Structures will fall, businesses will fail, governments will crumble, false churches and religious establishments will be wiped away and people everywhere will be measured, weighed and judged. No one will be excluded and it will include Believers and unbelievers alike. Trials, tests and hardships of all kinds will come upon many. Then whoever and whatever CAN be shaken WILL be shaken.


“He who dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress; my God, in Him I will trust.” Psalm 91:1-2

Believers of Jesus Christ, be strong and be encouraged. Do not despair. For regardless of what comes or what your eyes may see, remember this: God is, and always will be, in control.

Though you will not be able to avoid the shaking, for everyone must go through it, you can sustain and come through it victoriously. How so, you may ask? Abide in God. Trust in Him and obey Him – no matter what the consequences – and you will endure to the end.


“Joyful are those You discipline, Lord, those You teach with Your instructions. You give them relief from troubled times until a pit is dug to capture the wicked. The Lord will not reject His people; He will not abandon His special possession. Judgment will again be founded on justice, and those with virtuous hearts will pursue it.”  Psalm 94:12-15

Build a firm foundation. Build everything on the foundation of Jesus Christ. Read the Word, hear the Word, know the Word and obey the Word.

Are set apart for God. Remember, you are in the world but you are not of the world. Do not follow and pursue the people and the pleasures of this world.

Stay clean before the Lord. Do not involve yourself in sexual immorality, in drunkenness, in lewdness or in the occult. Beware of false religions and things that have been dedicated to idols for these things have curses attached to them.

Are Pursuing Holiness. God demands that we be Holy because He is Holy. Refrain from sin and make holiness a daily priority in your life.

Repent. If you do sin, repent immediately and make repentance a daily priority in your life.

Pray. 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 tells us: “Always be joyful. Never stop praying. Be thankful in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you who belong to Christ Jesus.” Make prayer a daily priority in your life.

Child of God, brace yourself then stand firm on the foundation of Jesus.


wheat-weedsThe livelihood of a wheat farmer depends greatly upon the quality of their crop. If someone wanted to sabotage a farmer’s business, one way to do it would be to maliciously sow seeds of destructive weeds in among the wheat as this would affect the integrity of their crop.

In the Bible, Jesus told the Parable of The Wheat & The Tares (Weeds), to a multitude of people comparin it to the Kingdom of Heaven:

“The Kingdom of Heaven is like a man who sowed good seed in his field; but while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares (weeds) among the wheat and went his way. But when the grain had sprouted and produced a crop, then the tares (weeds) also appeared. So the servants of the owner came and said to him, “Sir, did you not sow good seed in your field? How then does it have tares (weeds)?” He said to them, “An enemy has done this.” The servants said to him, “You want us then to go and gather them up?” But he said, “No, lest while you gather up the tares (weeds) you also uproot the wheat with them. Let both grow together until the harvest, and at the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, ‘First gather together the tares (weeds) and bind them in bundles to burn them, but gather the wheat into my barn.'” Matthew 13:24-30

Jesus later gave the meaning of this Parable to His disciples as it is explained below:

“Then Jesus sent the multitude away and went into the house. And His disciples came to Him, saying, “Explain to us the parable of the tares (weeds) of the field.” He answered and said to them: “He who sows the good seed is the Son of Man (Jesus). The field is the world, the good seeds are the sons of the Kingdom, but the tares (weeds) are the sons of the wicked one (Satan). The enemy who sowed them is the devil, the harvest is the end of the age, and the reapers are the angels. Therefore as the tares (weeds) are gathered and burned in the fire, so it will be at the end of this age. The Son of Man will send out His angels, and they will gather out of His Kingdom all things that offend, and those who practice lawlessness, and will cast them into the furnace of fire. There will be wailing and gnashing of teeth. Then the righteous will shine forth as the sun in the Kingdom of their Father. He who has ears to hear, let him hear!” Matthew 13: 36-43


Your enemy today, as it was in Jesus’ time, is still Satan. His age-old goal is, and always has been, to try his best to do everything he csn to oppose Jesus Christ. One of his most successful tactics is to compromise the integrity of Christ’s work by ‘planting’ false Believers and teachers into the world for the purpose of deceiving and misleading as many as he can. Those who fall prey to Satan’s traps are used to discredit, distort and mock God’s Word causing many Believers to be led astray to their detriment.

There are many people in this world who claim to be ‘Christians’ even though their words and actions say otherwise. These ‘counterfeit’ Believers make it very difficult for legitimate Christians, as well as the rest of the world, to know who is truly serving Jesus Christ. This is why it is so important that you have your own personal relationship with the Lord.

Although it is good to have fellow-saints around us such as pastors, teachers, etc. for instruction and fellowship, you must not depend on others to define God’s Word or this walk for you. You must know it and live it for yourself.


According to His Parable, Jesus allows the ‘weeds’ to remain with the ‘wheat’ but, only for a time so as not to uproot the immature crop. Christians who are ‘young’ in the faith require time to grow and mature. During this growth period, a ‘young’ Believer could easily be mistaken for a non-Christian. Because of this, you must be careful not to judge your fellow-Christian if they are in error. Pray for them, disciple them and encourage them.

Certain weeds, especially in the early stages of growth, look very similar to wheat. Therefore, through the analogy of wheat and weeds growing in a field together, Jesus warns that what we perceive as a false Believer may, in fact, be an immature Believer. People come to the Lord at different ages and stages in their life. We must be mindful of this fact as we encounter people every day. Do not judge others but instead speak and act in love. Only God knows for sure. “Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world.  By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is of God, and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world.” 1 John 4:1-3


There are no shortcuts in this walk. You must go the long and arduous distance alone. Pray often, spend as much time with the Lord as you can, study your Word to show yourself approved by God and always test the spirit in others. “Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Therefore by their fruits you will know them.Matthew 7:15-20


At the point of Christ’s return, the angels have been appointed to gather together the ‘weeds’ of this world for they are to be cast into a fiery destruction for all eternity. The saints, on the other hand, will be gathered together to be with Jesus. This walk is not an easy one but it is well worth it. Being transformed into the image of Christ will require time, sacrifice, discipline and some suffering too. This process of molding and purifying is not comfortable, yet all who truly love the Lord will have to go through it.

As you make your way through this journey, walk slowly without blinders. Look around you and be mindful of others. God is doing a work in their lives as well. The difference we make in the lives of others is a big part of why we are here. We ALL have an interactive job to do. It is given for some to plant and for others to water. Only God causes the growth and reaps the Harvest, in His time. Until then, be faithful, loving and obedient, in Jesus’ name.


As a child of God, you have been given keys to the Kingdom that give you the ability to bind (forbid) and loose (permit) powerful forces operating within the spiritual realm, in Jesus’ name. Are you walking in your authority?


God spoke the world, and everything in it, into existence by the power of His word. God made man in His image therefore our words also hold power. Our words do more than relay information. They stir up the spirit within us and cause change to happen within the spiritual realm. In essence, we are what we say and we will reap what we sew through our words.

” A man’s stomach shall be satisfied from the fruit of his mouth; from the produce of his lips he shall be filled. Death and life are in the power of the tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit.” Proverbs 18:20-21


Understanding the spiritual principles that govern your words is vital and necesssary for powerful and effective prayer. Knowing what to say and what not to say can make the difference between receiving the blessings God has for you and retreiving self-pronounced curses that you speak over yourself. With your words, you will build up or you will tear down. With your words, you will affirm or afflict.

” There is one whose rash words are like sword thrusts, but the tongue of the wise bring healing.” Proverbs 12:18

Be careful about what you say. Your words carry more weight than you may realize. Your words will either confirm you or convict you in the presence of the Lord. For on Judgment Day, God will hold you accountable for every word your lips have ever spoken concerning yourself as well as others. By your words, you will either be justified or condemned.

“I tell you on the Day of Judgment, people will give account for every careless word they speak.” Matthew 12:36


As a child of God, you have been given the authority and the power to bind anything that comes against you and the plan God has for your life. Likewise, you have also been given the authority and the power to loose whatever has been bound by the enemy from benefiting and blessing you – all this in the name of Jesus.

“And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades (Hell) shall not prevail against it. And I will give you the keys of the Kingdom of Heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in Heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in Heaven.” Matthew 16:18-19


When you pray about a situation that is affecting you or yours, take authority over it as led by the Holy Spirit thereby causing change to manifest. This is the principal behind binding and loosing.  A child of God who prays with this principle in mind will yield great power and miraculous results.

“The prayer of a righteous person has great power as it is working.” James 5:16


Not long ago, I had a conversation with a friend who shared with me a time when he and his family took authority over a life and death situation and watched as God delivered an amazing miracle on behalf of their prayers.

During a season when wildfires are common in California, my friend learned that his son’s home was dangerously close to being destroyed. He and his family decided to pray an extraordinary prayer on his son’s behalf. Instead of simply praying for the safety of his son and his home, they went a step beyond. He and his family embraced the authority that was given to them by Jesus Christ…

My friend and his family prayed to bind the oxygen that surrounded the fire that threatened the home while and prayed to loose the chemical formation of H2O (water) in its place. Miraculously, changes took place in the atmosphere surrounding the wildfire and it began to rain – as well as snow – and the fire was put out! Needless to say, all was well with his son and his home. Praise God!

God honors the prayers of His people who honor Him by believing His word and taking the authority that He has given them and using it to dynamically affect their circumstances. You can do the same.


Heavenly Father, by the authority given to me by my Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, I bind doubt and anything else that hinders Your children from believing and speaking forth powerful words that activate the supernatural power of prayer in their lives. I loose within them the faith they need to believe that they have the authority to boldly speak forth words of affirmation, abundance, productivity and fruitfulness into their lives and the lives of their loved ones, in Jesus’ name. Amen.


godly-parenting-family-article-witicles-olabisi-ajayi“The hand that rocks the cradle rules the world.”

Parents, the influence you have over your children is not one to be taken lightly for ‘the fruit rarely falls far from the tree.’

Child of God, you have been given the privilege and the responsibility of raising, guiding and training your children up according to the Word of the Lord. You will be held to an account for it by God.


Teach your children what it means to know and follow God’s Word at a very young age so their feet will be firmly planted on the Rock who will hold them steady in a world that desires to sift them. Your children have an enemy who is committed to doing whatever he can to destroy them. He wants to steal everything God has for them.


Teach your children to line their thoughts, their decisions and everything they will come to know in this world up against the Word of God. This will encourage them to think for themselves in a world that tries to think for them. This will train them for the leadership role God will soon reveal to them.


Teach your children that right and wrong is based in the infallible Word of God. It is absolute and should be their standard for everything they do and every decision they make in life. The world programs its own to believe that ‘truth’ is a relative term subject to one’s opinion. Teach your children the real Truth… while you still can.


Soon your child will reach the age of accountability. This is the age when God will hold him or her alone accountable for what they believe and do.  Although many believe the age of accountability to be twelve years, it is actually different for every child for God looks into the heart tof determine this. It has nothing to do with the amount of time they have been on this Earth. God knows the exact moment your child will come into the knowledge and the understanding of what is good and what is evil. At that designated age, God will hold your child fully accountable for the decisions they make in life and concerning their walk with Jesus. Each child will have to come to the Lord on their own merrits and completely independent of anyone else – including their parents.

Parents, there are children IN hell. Do your part to keep your child OUT.


God tells His people to teach His Word to their children so that the generations to come – including those who are yet to be born – will come into the knowledge of Him and His Word. This is so that we will set our hope anew on Him, so that we will not forget His glorious miracles and so that we will remain in obedience to Him, forever. (Psalm 78:5-7)


When we obey Gods commands concerning our children, God gives us the promise of HOPE. He promises us that if we train them up according to His ways and His wisdom and direct them onto the straight and narrow path that leads them to Him, “when they are old” they will not depart from Him.

Raising godly children is a sobering responsibility not to be taken lightly – but instead prayerfully, obediently and in full submission to Almighty God.



On Wednesday, October 26, 2016 at 2:30AM, God gave me a message to deliver to His Church. This message came in a dream. Due to the urgency of this message, I am reposting this dream…

Child of God, be assured that surely soon there will come a time of utter destruction. Not only was this dream a warning of this time that is sure to come, it is also a message that demonstrates God’s sovereignty and provision through it all for those he calls HIS OWN. In this dream, God reminds us that He is – and always will be – in control regardless of what we see and what we hear from those who believe they hold the power in this world. Child of God, be encouraged for He promises to protect us and provide for us through it all IF we are mindful to BELIEVE IN HIM, TRUST HIM & OBEY HIS EVERY COMMAND to the very end. I pray that you heed this warning.

In this dream, I was walking alone through a vast and desolate land. The land was barren as far as I could see. As I continued to walk, to my left suddenly appeared an army of soldiers on horseback. They were racing forward with swords drawn as if  running towards a battle. As I looked at the army, the Lord made it known to me that this was the world’s army. He impressed upon me the power and the control that this army represents to the people in this world. I was also made aware of the fear this army has imposed on the people for destruction is rumored to come by its hand. However, when I looked upon this army, I felt no fear or ties to it for I am not of this world, so I continued to walk.

Suddenly, to the left of the world’s army appeared another Army. This Army were also on horseback racing forward with swords drawn as if running into battle. However, I saw that this Army was different for it was an invisible Army. The Lord made it known to me that this was a spiritual army – not one made visible to everyone – and yet I could clearly see this Army. It was made known to me that this was a supernatural Army for this was God’s Army! Then, I saw a few of the soldiers from the world’s army turn to their left and look upon God’s Army for they were also able to see. I was reminded of Satan  and his evil kingdom who temporarily rule this world. Then, the few who could see turned away and dismissed God’s Army for they disregard the Holy things of God.

As I looked upon God’s Army, I immediately felt a quickening in my spirit and a sense of urgency. The Lord impressed upon me to immediately run to seek shelter and safety for destruction was sure to come. True destruction would not come at the hands of the world’s army, but instead  it will come at the hands of God’s Army! It was made known to me that this destruction was imminent and at hand!

As I turned to my right, immediately there appeared a small building that had not been there before. It was impressed upon me to run towards it, so I began to run as fast as I could. As I approached the building, I was tempted to hesitate for I feared that the door to the building would be locked. Still, I continued to run towards the building. I ran up the steps and turned the handle on the door and to my surprise, the door was unlocked so I opened it and went inside. Once inside the building, it was impressed upon me to run quickly up the stairs to the top floor. The moment my feet reached the top I heard a massive explosion. At that moment, it was made known to me that everything outside of that building had been destroyed. As I looked at the people on the lower level of the building, I saw that many had been gravely injured and some had even been killed.

Then, I knew that God had delivered me through it all…

It was impressed upon me that God, alone, had given me the revelation concerning the two armies. It was impressed upon me that God, alone, had prompted me to run , and not walk,  to seek shelter.  It was impressed upon me that God, alone, had delivered the provision that was not seen there before. It was impressed upon me that God, alone, had opened the door that I feared was locked. It was impressed upon me that God, alone, had directed me to quickly run to the very top of the stairs and not remain at the bottom.

Then, it was made known to me that had I not believed all that had been revealed to me in the vision concerning the two armies, I would not have survived. It was made known to me that had I not followed the urging of the Lord to run – and not walk – to seek shelter in the building, I would not have survived. It was made known to me that had I doubted God’s ability to open what I feared to be locked, I would not have survived. It was made known to me that had I not obeyed God’s instructions to run to the top floor and not remain on the bottom – I would not have survived.

After I saw all these things, it was impressed upon me that I am not to fear those who believe they have power in this world, for greater is He that is in me, than he that is in the world.

All these things were made known to me and I was reminded that EVERYTHING is, and always will be, in God’s hands and under God’s control – regardless of what we see with our natural eyes. Child of God, there is no need to worry about all the many obstacles that are placed before us by the enemy. For we have one responsibility that trumps it all: Trust God and obey His every word.

This message is for those who have eyes to see and ears to hear…


When I entered into a life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ thirty years ago, I was naive about many things concerning God. Quite simply, I believed that once I haf given my life over to the Lord, He would wave an invisible magic wand over me causing me and my life to immediately become “blessed” by being trouble-free. When things did not go as I imagined it would, I was confused and disappointed. Not only did my life NOT become trouble free, I experienced even more trials and challenges.

Having not been discipled  by someone who had walked this walk before me, I did not understand that once you become a child of God, you immediately become an enemy of Satan’s.

There is spiritual warfare taking place all around us. For most, it cannot be seen with our physical eyes for it exists in the spiritual realm. The war is between two kingdoms – the Kingdom of God and the kingdom of Satan. To live in this world as a Christian and not recognize this reality is a dangerous disadvantage to say the least for this battle is being fought to the death.


Spiritual warfare is not a battle that can be fought in the natural. As God has a Kingdom, Satan also has a kingdom and it is not to be underestimated.

Satan is a counterfeit. The entirety of his existence in this world is based on replicating and mocking God. He began in the Heavenly realm in service to God almighty, therefore he had an excellent model to copy. When Lucifer was cast out of Heaven, he took with him one third of the Angels that we now call demons. Lucifer became Satan and operated his kingdom in the second heaven situated above the Earth and below God’s Glory.

Satan is a master of deception therefore he set up a highly organized, structured kingdom modeled after the Kingdom of God complete with principalities (kings, princes, etc.) that govern over countries, states, cities, neighborhoods, nationalities and even people.

In the spiritual realm, Satan’s kingdom battles for control of our souls. Each true follower of Jesus Christ bares the mark of God which is seen by those who are under the rule of Satan. The world may be fooled by the false Christian, but in the spiritual realm all truth is revealed. Child of God, never forget that you are the prime target of Satan and all of his minions.


Beloved, we are at war! Satan, demons, evil spirits of all ranks and even people on this Earth who are committed to serving evil are aiming their efforts for destruction at you. You must fight! God demands and has equipped you to do just that. In this, be strong, be resolute and be encouraged for Jesus has already defeated Satan’s kingdom and has won this war.


When we believe and respond only to what we are capable of experiencing in the natural, we render ourselves dysfunctional as Christians. When we do this not only are we limiting ourselves, we are limiting God for the Lord moves according to our faith.


Christians who say they believe and yet are living their lives according to their own version of Christianity, and not according to the Word of God, will LOSE this war. You cannot fight on your own terms or in your own power.


The Bible tells us that we must put on the whole armor of God in order to withstand the schemes of the devil (Ephesians 6:11). “Stand your ground putting on the Belt of Truth and the Body Armor of God’s righteousness. For shoes put on the Peace that comes from the Good News so that you will be fully prepared. In addition to all of these, hold up the Shield of Faith to stop the fiery arrows of the devil. Put on Salvation as your Helmet and take the Sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God. Pray at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all Believers everywhere. Ephesians 6:14-18


Read your Bible! Know your Bible! Live your Bible! Regardless of what church you may attend, you cannot trust the translation of the Word of God to anyone. God will speak to you concerning his Word. You will be held responsible for every step you take in your own walk.

Study your Word and do your homework. You can be sure that Satan has done his. Rest assured that he and his demons know everything about you. They know your strengths as well as your weaknesses. In fact, they count on your every flaw and will not hesitate to use all of them against you in their relentless pursuit to steal, kill and destroy you and your family.


You are the body of the Church. You, the Christian, are the sole enemy of Satan for the Church alone is the only entity powerful enough to defeat him and his kingdom. No one on this Earth has the ability and the power through Jesus Christ to do this but the Church. Jesus has commanded His disciples to occupy and subdue (Genesis 1:28) until He returns. If we, as the Church, do not stand up and fight on God’s behalf, who else will?



The Answer: “HE IS…”


…And that day is coming very, very soon.

When Jesus returns, not only will He put a stop to ALL the evil and suffering in this world, He will put a stop to ALL who commits the evil and suffering in this world. This will include ALL who lie, who cheat, who steal, who murder, who covet, who lust, who are sexually immoral, who commit fornication, who commit adultery, who deceive, who slanders (smears one’s name), who are lascivious (who seek to cause inappropriate sexual desire), who are wicked, who are prideful, who are foolish, who are impure, who practice idolatry (worshiping something or someone other than God), who practice witchcraft (in all of its forms), who cause hostility, who cause strife, who are jealous, who have fits of anger, who cause rivalry, who cause conflict, who cause division, who envy, who commit drunkenness, who are selfish, who are greedy, who are arrogant, who are abusive (in all forms), who are disobedient to parents, who are ungrateful, who are unholy, who are merciless, who are slanderous, who have no self-control, who are brutal, who do not love what is good, who are treacherous, who are reckless, who are conceited, who are godless and those who deny Jesus Christ is Lord.

PEOPLE are the cause of all the suffering in the world.  God gave us a free will to make our own choices and decisions in life. Unfortunately, people misuse and abuse this freedom to cause pain and suffering to others in various ways. When evil came into the world, sin contaminated everyone and everything. Those in this world who have not received Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior, who transforms us from sinners, will continue to operate under the influence of evil to the very end.

Do you believe we are all truly ready for God to put a stop to the PEOPLE who cause the suffering in this world? Are you ready for that day? Are all of your loved ones ready for that day?

You see, God is tarrying for you. He is holding back His judgment, and His wrath, to give you and others time to repent. He is giving the people of this world time to turn from their sins and turn to Him. For when God finally signals the return of His son, Jesus Christ, He will eternally put an end to it all. When this happens, it will be a brand new day. The Kingdom of God will have come. Only then, what is good and those who are good, according to the Word of God, will remain. Only then, will Jesus Christ redeem and rule this world. Only then, will evil be annihilated and all the suffering in this world come to an end.

Unfortunately, the time that God is holding back from us also allows time for evil to continue in this world. And as long as there is evil in this world, there will continue to be suffering in this world. God is a just God. He allows the wheat and the weeds to grow up together until His appointed time of Harvest. When that time comes, what is of Him will be gathered, the rest will be thrown into the fire for God is righteous, Holy and sovereign. “…He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust.” Matthew 5:45.

There will come a day, however, when righteousness and evil will be separated:

Jesus told the following story: “The Kingdom of Heaven is like a farmer who planted good seed in his field. But that night as the workers slept, his enemy came and planted weeds among the wheat, then slipped away. When the crop began to grow and produce grain, the weeds also grew. The farmer’s workers went to him and said, “Sir, the field where you planted that good seed is full of weeds! Where did they come from?” “An enemy has done this!” the farmer exclaimed. “Should we pull out the weeds?” they asked. “No,” he replied, “you’ll uproot the wheat if you do. Let both grow together until the harvest. Then I will tell the harvesters to sort out the weeds, tie them into bundles, and burn them, and to put the wheat in the barn.” Matthew 13:24-30 

Jesus said, “Therefore keep watch, because you do not know on what day your Lord will come.” Matthew 24:42



Witchcraft. What comes to mind when you think of the word? A charming children’s book series? How about cutesy cartoon characters? Is there a magical movie in your memory? Do you get answers acquired from astrology? Or maybe you dabble in the dark and the demonic?

There are many who want you to believe that witchcraft, and all that is associated with it, is only harmless, make-believe magic that innocently sparks the dark side of your imagination. Truth be told, when you’return involved in ANY form of witchcraft, you open yourself up to Satan and you open the doors that welcome the demonic into your life.

When you play around with the demonic, you are not only giving Satan access to your life, but you are giving him access to the lives of your family and others who are around you as well.  You have then opened a portal that leads to demonic attacks, curses, influence, illness, disease, death and Hell.

It is no secret that Satan influences the media. He has his hands on the books that you read, the films that you watch and the propaganda you buy into. He is intentionally providing you with what the world calls innocent ‘fantasy’ and feeds it to you through ‘tales’ of enchantments, magic, sorcery, spells, wizardry and necromancy (communicating with the dead). He presents it all to you, and your children, for your (so-called) reading and viewing entertainment. However, for Christian, God sees witchcraft in any form as rebellion, deception and destruction.

There are many elements to witchcraft. There are some you are familiar with and some you may not be aware of. Once you discover the truth, you MUST avoid them all.


Satan, as you know, is the master counterfeiter. He attempts to destroy what is Godly and true by replacing it with what is evil and false. This has been his plan from the very beginning. This plan that led to his fall and banishment as well as the fall and banishment of a third of the angels from Heaven, was derived to kill, steal and destroy all that belongs to God. He does this by using everything within the limited amount of “power” God has given him to appeal to you and trap you.

Once your enemy has snared you, he accuses you and your sin to God then he ‘legally’ takes rightful spiritual ownership of your soul.  Satan always distorts the truth by using this world to make you believe in a lie. He taints what is good by convincing you to do evil. He perverts what is Holy by corrupting it in your eyes so that you will disrespect and dishonor what is godly.

All forms of witchcraft are actually Satan’s attempt to imitate the Holy Spirit, who is the embodiment of Godly power in action. Church, don’t be fooled.


Witchcraft has been around since the beginning of time. It is known as the ‘old religion’ and is rooted in the old English term, ‘wiccian’ which means ‘to practice magical arts.’ Those who practice it are considered witches and possess a spirit of divination. Witches can be either male or female.

The old, stereotypical witch with their proverbial warts, pointed hats and broomsticks are a far cry from reality. Media has done a great job distracting you from the truth. The reality is that it is nearly impossible to identify a real witch based on their outward appearance alone. To add to this deception, their popularity is fed by an intrigued and the appealing mystique of the supernatural – thanks to the media.

This facade has allowed those associated with witchcraft to easily assimilate into mainstream society as they are greeted with welcoming arms by those eager to learn more. There is nothing good about witchcraft and yet the false belief that there are good and bad witches has helped Hollywood to encourage practicing it and promoting it. All this aside, you must never lose sight of the truth which is that ALL witchcraft is evil as well as ALL who practice it. For witchcraft and witches have ALL been spawned from the worship of Satan.


Witchcraft comes in many forms and its evils are released through many avenues. We can recognize many of its forms today through the practice of astrology, the casting of spells, charms, curses, channeling, divination (seeking knowledge of the future), enchantments, familiar spirits, fortune-telling, mixing potions, séances, spirit guides, spiritualism, tarot cards and teacup readings, to name some. However, witchcraft comes in many other disguises as well. Let’s delve into this subject a little further.


As Christians, when we acknowledge the universe, and all that is in it, it is impossible to do so without an expression of awe and reverence to God for in them we see His infinitude, His power and His wisdom. God created it all. So, what does He have to say about our use, or abuse, of what He has created?

King David said: When I consider Your heavens, the work of Your fingers, the moon and the stars, which You have ordained, what is man that You are mindful of him…” Psalm 8:3-4 (NKJV).The heavens declare the glory of God; and the firmament shows His handiwork.” Psalms 19:1 (NKJV).He counts the number of the stars; He calls them all by name. Great is our Lord, and mighty in power; His understanding is infinite.” Psalms 147:4-5.

The Bible tells us that the stars, the sun and the moon were placed to light the earth and to determine the seasons. Then God said, “Let lights appear in the sky to separate the day from the night. Let them be signs to mark the seasons, days, and years. Let these lights in the sky shine down on the earth.” And that is what happened. God made two great lights – the larger one to govern the day, and the smaller one to govern the night. He also made the stars. God set these lights in the sky to light the earth, to govern the day and night, and to separate the light from the darkness. And God saw that it was good.” Genesis 1:14-18.

Throughout history, the stars, sun and moon were also used to help navigate the course of travel. This is acceptable use of God’s heavenly creations. In biblical times, God even used the stars to illustrate the innumerable amount of seed He had promised to give Abraham. Then He brought him (Abraham) outside and said, “Look now toward heaven, and count the stars if you are able to number them.” And He said to him, “So shall your descendants be.” Genesis 15:5. Following the promise God made to Abraham, every time he would look to the Heavens and see the stars, Abraham was reminded of how faithful and how good God is.

Astrology which is the study of celestial bodies and the influence they have on human affairs and the natural world was actually introduced to man by Satan. This practice was given to encourage a false belief that deceives man into believing that we are able to seek sources, other than God, for knowledge, information and wisdom which in turn eliminates our need for God and serves to elevate man and his abilities. This belief system creates false idols/idolatry which is sin.

In Biblical times, when the royal astrologers of the Babylonian court tried to use their “power” to interpret the king‘s dream, they were found powerless and were put to shame by Daniel, who was God’s prophet. Daniel answered in the presence of the king, and said, “The secret which the king has demanded, the wise men, the astrologers, the magicians, and the soothsayers cannot declare to the king. But there is a God in Heaven who reveals secrets, and He has made known to King Nebuchadnezzar what will be in the latter days.” Daniel 2:27-28

According to the word of God, astrology is considered a form of divination and is forbidden.There shall not be found among you anyone who makes his son or his daughter pass through the fire, or one who practices witchcraft, or a soothsayer, or one who interprets omens, or a sorcerer, or one who conjures spells, or a medium, or a spiritualist, or one who calls up the dead. For all who do these things are an abomination to the Lord,” Deuteronomy 18:10-12.

According to the word of God, all who practice astrology will be among those who will be burned and destroyed in God’s judgement. All the advice you receive has made you tired. Where are all your astrologers, those stargazers who make predictions each month? Let them stand up and save you from what the future holds. But they are like straw burning in a fire; they cannot save themselves from the flame. You will get no help from them at all; their hearth is no place to sit for warmth. And all your friends, those with whom you’ve done business since childhood, will go their own ways, turning a deaf ear to your cries.” Isaiah 47:13-15.

God forbids us from worshiping or serving the sun, the moon or the stars. When the children of Israel chose to do these things, their disobedience brought God’s judgement down upon them every time. “And take heed, lest you lift your eyes to heaven, and when you see the sun, the moon, and the stars, all the host of heaven, you feel driven to worship them and serve them,”  Deuteronomy 4:19.

True knowledge and wisdom comes from no other source but God. He alone determines what will take place today tomorrow and tomorrow. He has given us His Word and the Holy Spirit to guide us. We should seek onky Him for all answers to all questions, all the time.


Be careful of activities that are rooted in Hinduism, Buddhism and Taoism as they conflict with the teachings of Jesus Christ. In fact, the belief system behind these pagan religions is a form of spiritualism. It convinces those who believe and follow it that they are placing themselves on a pathway that leads to “spiritual enlightenment.” This demonic philosophy teaches that the power of God is not absolute for everyone has the ability to tap into and possess “power.” Any “power” that anyone seeks that does not come from God and is not rooted in Jesus Christ is demonic and evil.

Those who engage in these practices will be placed on a path. But it is not the kind of path they may think it is. This path will lead them into a dark and deceptive alley that will turn them away from the Light of God.


Yoga is another form of spiritualism. It is an element of one of the world’s oldest idolatrous pagan religion called Hinduism. Unsuspecting people believe yoga to be a harmless physical exercise with a spiritual component when, in fact, it is a harmful spiritual exercise with a physical component. Many believe that yoga is nothing more than an exercise program that encourages stress-free bodily flexibility that is enhanced by a mental ‘stimulation’ that connects you to a higher “power.” They are mistaken. There are false spiritual connotations hidden deep beneath the surface. I share with you the following experience of one who discovered this first-hand:

“A Hindu named Patanjali is believed by many historians to be the “father” of yoga. He codified his understanding of yoga in The Yoga Sutra of Patanjali sometime before the birth of Jesus. Patanjali’s teachings are known as the “eightfold path of yoga” and are at the core of how to live a better life through yoga. Patanjali believed that union (through meditation) with the “Supreme” (not Jesus Christ) was the result of retraining, controlling and eventually annihilating the ego. He believed that yoga was the way to overcome the many obstacles of a mortal uniting with the immortal. Without realizing it, I was learning how to live a better life and become a better person through yoga rather than through Jesus Christ. As it turned out, meditation (yoga) did put me on a pathway, but it wasn’t to spiritual enlightenment. After five years of training, I became an atheist…Mark McGee.

[Mark McGee is a journalist and former atheist. He taught martial arts for 50 years and was a student of Eastern philosophies before becoming an atheist. Mark became a Christian after investigating evidence for the truth and verifying the claims of Christianity more than 40 years ago. He became a member of Judo and Karate for Christ in 1972 and now teaches martial arts from a Christian perspective.]


Other spiritualistic programs like Judo, Aikido, Karate and Kung Fu introduce people to other eastern philosophies such as Buddhism. It is believed that the primary focus of Buddhism is to practice “right living” through actions and meditation in an effort to end suffering and help one achieve a self-awakening. The philosophies behind Hinduism, Buddhism and Taoism always begin with meditation. Meditation is the practice of training the mind, or inducing a level of consciousness, for a pre-determined purpose. “Guides” are often used to help students calm their minds and relax their bodies so that they can allow their internal “power” to flow through to their external. Buddhism teaches that the deeper you go in meditation, the better your martial arts technique will be. What kind of “power” do you think is being accessed through this meditation? Certainly not the power of the Holy Spirit which can only be accessed through Jesus Christ.


Spiritualism is the belief, and the practice, of communication with spirits and the dead. Spiritualism, and all its forms, is in fact, witchcraft. It is also a form of idolatry as it encourages one to focus on selfish pursuit as opposed to Christianity that focuses on Jesus Christ and the pursuit of God.

Spiritualism falsely teaches that people are fundamentally good and can accomplish whatever they want if only they will focus their minds to doing so. This is contrary to truth, according to God. “Jesus answered. No one is good except God Alone.” Luke 18:19

People are born with a sin nature. This nature is ruled by the flesh which aims to destroy the body if left to its own devices. However, through Jesus Christ, we are saved from that sin. Through Him, God sends the Holy Spirit who dwells in us and enables us to operate in true power, not a counterfeit form of satanic “power.”

Those who pursue the practice of spiritualism are actually engaging in activities that may appear to be innocent yet are far from it. This sin opens the door for demonic contact, harassment, oppression and even possession. There are many accounts of those whose have practiced forms of spiritualism which has resulted in their being traumatized emotionally, psychologically and physically by contact with demons.

If you seek truth, there is only one way to get it. His name is Jesus Christ. “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” John 14:6.


As a Christian, I am sure you would never be in contact with pentagrams, Ouija boards, satanic rituals or the drinking of blood. I am also sure none of you would ever seek out a psychic, hold a séance or attempt to cast spells. Or would you?

And the Lord warned: “When you enter the land the LORD your God is giving you, do not learn to imitate the detestable ways of the nations there. Let no one be found among you who sacrifices his son or daughter in the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, or casts spells, or who is a medium or who consults the dead. Anyone who does these things is detestable to the LORD, and because of these detestable practices the LORD your God will drive out those nations before you. You must be blameless before the LORD your God. The nations you will dispossess listen to those who practice sorcery or divination. But as for you, the LORD your God has not permitted you to do so.” Deuteronomy 18:9-14.


Since the beginning of time, there have been many who have succumbed to Satan through the partnership of sex and witchcraft. Through idolatry, rebellion, seduction and whoredom, this combination has snared those from early Biblical times up to the current. The combination of sexual activity and the occult have been prevalent throughout time through the cultures and throughout different religions. Sexual immorality has been, and is still, a key element of pagan worship and satanism, including witchcraft.

Today, Satan has attempted to cover the sin of sexual immorality by replacing it with society-acceptable words and phrases like ‘sexy,’ ‘addiction,’ ‘weakness,’ ‘struggle,’ ‘pornography,’ ‘adult entertainment,’ ‘normal’ and ‘sex drive.’ Society has embraced these terms and has even made some of them desirable. This is deception in its most deadliest of forms. It is what it is – sexual immorality.


The Christian Church consists of a body of Believers. God considers each one of those bodies to be a temple of the Holy Spirit. Because God paid an exorbitant price for you through the sacrifice of His son, Jesus Christ, we are to honor God with our bodies. We do this by refraining from sexual sins.  Run from sexual sin! No other sin so clearly affects the body as this one does. For sexual immorality is a sin against your own body. Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God? You do not belong to yourself; for God bought you with a high price. So you must honor God with your body.” 1 Corinthians 6:18-20

Immoral and perverted sex acts were, and still are, performed in the temples of false gods for pagan idol worship. When our bodies take part in sexual sins, we are emulating these acts and violating God’s Holy temple. God considers this behavior detestable. Don’t fool yourselves. Those who indulge in sexual sin, or who worship idols, or commit adultery, or are male prostitutes, or practice homosexuality, or are thieves, or greedy people, or drunkards, or are abusive, or cheat people – none of these will inherit the Kingdom of God.” 1 Corinthians 6:9-10.

Sex is a gift designed by God given to one man and one woman who are committed to each other in a sanctified married relationship. To participate in sex outside of those boundaries is to sin. Although many may feel that consensual sex between two people are their business and no one else’s, we must remember that our bodies, and our sexuality, were created by God. Therefore, it is His business. He alone has the right to establish the parameters by which we are to use them. “Put to death therefore what is earthly in you: sexual immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry.” Colossians 3:5 (NLT)


“And it came to pass, when Joram saw Jehu, that he said, “Is it peace, Jehu?” And he answered, “What peace, so long as the whoredoms of thy mother Jezebel and her witchcrafts are so many?” 2 Kings 9:22

Jezebel… She was a treacherous, domineering idolator and a corrupting schemer. This was definitely not a woman of restraint or high principles. Savage and relentless, this prideful, strong-willed woman ruthlessly carried out her foul plans. The great sins of Jezebel also included whoredom, for by ways of adultery, fornication, prostitution, debasement and sexual sins of all sorts, she defiled herself to further the cause of evil. Through her sinful deeds, she became the mother of all curses. This whoredom spirit is a worldly spirit and is grounded in carnality and sensuality. The spirit has no problem using sex to get what it wants.

As a Christian and as part of God’s Church, you are a target. You have high-level evil spirits working against you always waiting for an opportunity to gain entrance into your life. If you use flirtatious, sexual wiles for the purpose of controlling, manipulating and serving self, you may be being used by one of the most powerful spirits Satan has at his disposal. This would be the Jezebel spirit, a spirit of seduction and whoredom.


The Bible records the many, many times that Israel turned their backs on God. There are numerous accounts of their continuous rebellion through acts of sexual immorality and the worshipping of false gods. In the book of Hosea, God angrily tells Israel that they have a spirit of whoredom: My people inquire of a piece of wood, and their walking staff gives them oracles. For a spirit of whoredom has led them astray, and they have left their God to play the whore.” Hosea 4:12 (ESV).

What did God mean by this? To “inquire of a piece of wood” refers to the wooden idol they were worshipping and “their walking staff gives them oracles” refers to the false wisdom they claimed to receive from this false god. When Israel turned their backs on God and began to worship other things, God charged them as being unfaithful and likened it to spiritual “adultery.”

Satan-inspired evil spirits use sin to cleverly gain entrance into the lives of people thereby causing them to chase after what is alluring and tempting to them. If people succumb to this sin, it will easily become stumbling blocks that can turn them away from God. This sin becomes an idol that people chase after and worship. God condemns idolatry in every form.

But just as God called Israel to repentance, He calls us to turn away from such things and return to Him.  He offers to forgive us our sin and enter into a restorative relationship with Him. Do it now!


We have covered much today in the name of witchcraft. If you were not already aware of these things, you are now informed. God will hold you accountable. To be ignorant of the truth is one thing, but to have knowledge of God’s Word and then choose to disobey it is considered blatant rebellion in God’s eyes. That is far worse. “For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the Holy commandment delivered unto them.” 2 Peter 2:21 (KJV)

As a Christian, it is never about what you or anyone else thinks or has to say about a matter. It is always about what Jesus has to say about it if you are overdose. If you are ever in doubt about anything in this life, seek out His Word and find the answer for yourself. To take any other stand is to live in disobedience and rebellion. Choose not to walk down that path. “For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft, and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry. Because you have rejected the Word of the Lord, He also has rejected you…” 1 Samuel 15:23 (NKJV).


Death pathway

Death is the hand that will usher us out of dress rehearsal where we practice ‘living’ into the eternal performance of a lifetime. Lights! Action! Are you ready?

I would like to share what has been on my heart for quite some time now. It concerns a subject that does not venture too far away from my mind these days. Although this may be considered a sensitive and somber topic by some, I believe it to be a crucial and necessary discussion for many. Let’s reflect upon our life as we live with the reality of DEATH…

Through our souls and spirits, we have ALL been created to live forever. However, our bodies are ALL going to die one day. Let’s face it, death is an inevitable part of life and even though we are always caught off guard by it when it happens to someone we care about, we must not ignore the fact that death will one day – possibly sooner than you think – happen to you.

In fact, you should consider death to be the most important event of your life. Why? Because it is only after we experience death in the natural realm that we will pass through the veil that separates this facade we call ‘life on Earth’ from the eternal reality that awaits us all in the spiritual realm.

Whether by way of old age, accident, illness or evil intent, we will all pass through that door. And, we will all have to go through it ALONE. When the time comes, there will be no favors to be bought nor will there be family or friends to help you through it. By your decisions alone, death will deliver you to sanctity or sorrow. God has determined that death is the unyielding price and the penalty of sin that MUST be paid – unless Jesus has cancelled this debt for you.

The question that should be on everyone’s mind is not when you are going to die but where your soul will go when you do. Where will you spend eternity? Those who did not live a life of compromise and who reverently lived for Jesus will spend eternity in Heavenly glory with Him. Those who rejected Him and who did not repent from their sin, will spend their eternity in a torturous Hell forever separated from God.

God has set a predetermined time for each of us to die. Regardless of our age or what is going on in our lives at the time, there will be nothing anyone can do to prevent it. Wherever you are in your standing with God at that very moment, your destiny with eternity will be set. It will be too late to change directions from the narrow path or wide road that your decisions placed you on.

When our loved ones die, we mourn because we miss their presence on this earth. However, in the midst of our mourning, there is hope and peace in knowing that we will see them again. Nothing hurts more than the reality of being eternally separated from those we love. We must share this gift of hope with others. We must let people know that in Jesus, it does not have to be this way. It is far better to know that even though we temporarily miss our loved ones, we will one day see them again.

If you are reading this, God has given you time to change the direction of your life. Not only will your decisions make all the difference in the world for you, it will make a difference in the lives of others who are following you and watching you. Child of God, continue to practice living well for Jesus. It is almost time for the Show!


stages-300x300This was the question I asked myself thirty years ago when I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior. You see, I was not raised in a church and did not own a Bible until I was 27 years old. There was no one around to disciple me and, honestly, I felt completely lost because there was so much I did not understand. Although I was excited about my brand new life as a Christian, I knew nothing about the things of God. My first few years as a Christian, I made so many mistakes. I realized years later that my transition could have been much easier if I had been discipled which is why I am sharing this message.

Allow me to be completely honest with you. Following Jesus Christ will be the most difficult and the most rewarding experience you will ever encounter in your life. The sad fact of the matter is that not everyone will be able to see it through to the end for many people come to Christ for many reasons. However, only those who are called by God will be able to contend to the end. The Bible tells us “You can enter God’s Kingdom only through the narrow gate. The Highway to Hell is broad and its gate is wide for the many who choose that way. But the gateway to life (Heaven) is very narrow and the road is difficult, and only a few ever find it.” (Matthew 7:13-14)

Relationship is the key. To successfully live the life of a Believer, you must have an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ. Two-way communication is mandatory for this journey.

So, what do you do now that you are a brand new Christian? If you haven’t already, first be sure that you get baptized…

Jesus tells us: “Most assuredly, I say to you unless one is born of water and the Spirit, he cannot enter the Kingdom of God.” (John 3:5) Baptism represents the partaking of the burial and raising of Jesus Christ so that we, too, may walk in the newness of life. It is for this reason, we are told to repent AND be baptized in His name for the forgiveness of our sins. The Bible also tells us that the baptism allows us to “receive the gift of the Holy Spirit(Acts 2:38) who is our Helper though out this walk.

The first thing Jesus did before He began His ministry was to be baptized, (Luke 3:21-22). Where do you go to get baptized? Any true follower of Jesus Christ (Believer) is authorized, according to Jesus Christ, to baptize. “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age. Amen. (Matthew 28: 19-20)

Baptism can be done in a true, Jesus-following church and even in a bathtub within the home of a true believer. As followers of Jesus Christ, we are to follow His example. So regardless of where you get baptized, get baptized as soon as you can!

You cannot truly follow Jesus Christ if you do not understand who He is or know His word. “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: that the man of God may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.” 2 Timothy 3:16-17

There is no substitute for reading your bible. Begin immediately and do it every day. There are many translations available. Find one that is most faithful to the original text. I recommend beginning with the King James Version or the New King James Version. If you are sincere in seeking Him, God will unlock the mysteries of His word to you and give you understanding. Set aside time when and where you can meditate on Him without being interrupted. Quality and quantity go hand-in-hand when it comes to reading your Word. The Bible telIs us that we are to “study to show ourselves approved unto God, a workman who need not be ashamed, rightly dividing the word unto truth.” (2 Timothy 2:15). Remember this: God pursues those who pursue Him.

Jesus tells His followers to pray always without ceasing. Prayer, very simply, is talking to God just as you would talk to your very best friend for He is just that. In fact, you will find that He is the very best friend you will ever have. Talk to Him about everything. He cares about everything that concerns you. There is nothing too small or seemingly too insignificant that you can’t share with Him. Through prayer, you will be developing a very REAL and very intimate relationship with the true and living almighty, miraculous God. There’s nothing in the world like it.

My suggestion would be that you begin by praying every morning before you start your day and every evening before you go to bed. Also pray often throughout the day. Pray about everything. Pray for direction and guidance concerning every decision you make. Thank Him for all He has done, all He is doing and all He will do for you. Pray for others as well as yourself. If you find it difficult to find the words to pray, ask the Holy Spirit to guide your thoughts and He will. “When you pray, go into your room, and when you have shut your door, pray to your Father who is in the secret place, and your Father who sees in secret will reward you openly you.” (Matthew 6:6)

The Christian life is not an easy life. As a true follower of Jesus Christ, you will be under constant attack and scrutiny from this world by way of Satan and his demons. As hard as it may be to understand this, know that this may even include your family members. It is good to fellowship with like-minded Christians. Jesus told His disciples that “A prophet is without honor only in his hometown, among his relatives, and in his own household.” Mark 6:4

You will need to be around those you trust for encouragement as well as correction. “And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but encouraging one another and so much the more as you see the Day (of Jesus’ return) approaching.” (Hebrews 10:24-25)

Also be mindful that we, as Christians, are warned to not be unequally yoked with non-believers. “Do not be deceived: Evil company corrupts good habits.” (1 Corinthians 15:33)

As a new Christian, the Lord will begin a miraculous new work in you. You will go through a process that will transform you from the old you into the fabulous new you that God created you to be. Now, this transformation doesn’t usually happen over night. The process of molding and re-shaping you into the spiritual image of Jesus Christ takes a lifetime. A brand new Spirit has come alive in you for God has an amazing work for you to do. How exciting! “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.” (Ephesians 2:10)

Through Jesus Christ, your Lord and Savior, you have received salvation. You can now stand alongside of Him and claim your inheritance to the Kingdom of God. Through Him, you now have the authority and the power that delivers healing and deliverance. You have access to the throne of the one and only living God. There is much God is going to tell you, do with you and show you so keep a journal and share your excitement whenever you have the opportunity.

It is through your testimony, and the testimony of others, that Jesus Christ will be shared throughout the world. It is also through your testimony that You share in the victory of overcoming Satan and the evil that is temporarily in this world. “And they (Christians) overcame him (Satan) by the blood of the Lamb (Jesus) and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.” (Revelation 12:11)

As you continue in your faith and your walk, remember that there is nothing you have done that was deserving of this wonderful blessing that you have received through Jesus Christ. You have been saved by grace alone. Even still, God has started a work in you and His promise is to finish it. “Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ;” (Philippians 1:6)

Only God knows the plans He has for you. Only God knows of your special call. Pray for the leading of the Holy Spirit to know it and then receive it by faith. Pray for spiritual sensitivity to hear Him so that you can obey His every word. “For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, saith the Lord, thoughts of peace, and not of evil, to give you an expected end.” Jeremiah 29:11

Now, welcome to the family and remember that in all things to God be all the glory!
