THIS PAST PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION WAS A DIVINE SETUP

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.

A DIVINE SETUP

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.

TRUTHS BE TOLD

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

BIRTHING PAINS MUST COME BEFORE THE NEW BIRTH

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.

A PROPHETIC VISION: THE FLY & THE COMING DEMONIC ATTACK

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 & VISIONS, SYMBOLIC PARABLES & RIDDLES

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.

AUTHORITY & POWER TO FIGHT THE ENEMY

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.

VISION INTERPRETATION: THE COMING DEMONIC ATTACK

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.

  • YOUR RIGHT STANDING WITH GOD

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.

  • PRAYER

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.

  • SPIRITUAL WEAPONS

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

  • THE AUTHORITY TO CAST OUT DEMONS

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

  • KNOW & USE YOUR SPIRITUAL GIFTS

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 

  • YOU CAN CALL UPON THE ANGELS

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

  • KNOW THE WORD OF GOD

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

  • UTILIZE THE MIRACULOUS COUNSEL & POWER OF THE ALMIGHTY FATHER, SON & HOLY SPIRIT

“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.

PROPHETIC VISION: EVIL SPIRITS & THE CURSED THINGS

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.

CHRISTIAN YOUTH: SATAN’S #1 TARGET

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.

THE ATTACK

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 COUNTER-ATTACK

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.

THE KEYS OF THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN: USING YOUR AUTHORITY TO BIND & LOOSE

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?

MADE IN GOD’S IMAGE

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

THE POWER OF THE SPOKEN WORD

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

THE PRINCIPLESS OF BINDING & LOOSING

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

USING YOUR AUTHORITY TO BIND & LOOSE

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

AN EXAMPLE OF UNCOMMON, SUPERNATURAL PRAYER AT WORK

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.

MY PRAYER FOR YOU

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.

PROPHETIC DREAM: THE COMING DESTRUCTION

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…

WALKING AMONG THE HATERS: SPIRITUAL WARFARE BETWEEN THE KINGDOMS OF GOD & SATAN

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.

THE KINGDOM OF SATAN

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.

CHRISTIANS MUST FIGHT!

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 LIMIT OURSELVES, WE LIMIT GOD

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.

CAN ALL CHRISTIANS WIN THIS WAR?

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.

HOW DO WE FIGHT?

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

SATAN DOES HIS HOMEWORK

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.

KNOW YOUR ENEMY

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?

I’M A BRAND NEW CHRISTIAN! NOW WHAT?

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…

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!

READ YOUR BIBLE
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.

PRAY OFTEN
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)

BUILD FRIENDSHIPS WITH OTHER TRUE FOLLOWERS OF JESUS
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)

OFFER YOUR GIFTS & SERVICES FOR GOD’S PURPOSE
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)

ALWAYS LOOK FOR OPPORTUNITIES TO SHARE YOUR FAITH & YOUR TESTIMONY WITH OTHERS
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)

PRAY FOR GOD TO LEAD YOU INTO YOUR DESTINY
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!
