FROM the PIT to PALACE


from the pit to the palce

The Called, Pioneers of Destiny

My Pastor’s message at our home worship service came from Genesis Chapter 42 to the end. Joseph, the bragging dreamer, was elevated to the second highest position in Egypt under the Pharaoh. I’d read and reread Joseph’s challenging journey from the pit, to the prison…to the palace. many times. This Sundays’ sermon visitation to Joseph’s amazing story by my enthusiastic Pastor Sandra, reminded me of God’s greatness, sovereignty and mercy to his people.

Sunday’s lesson came all together as my intercessor sisters and I were praying about the suffering and hardship of the mothers and their children trekking in the Caravan line to the United States. A few prayers were compassionately wept, but God was reminding me of a vision He first implanted in my heart as a second year student at Brookdale College in 1987. I was vivacious and full of creativity, especially in my creative writing, graphic design, photography and painting classes. Mr. Scholl, our graphic design instructor, had us design a logo for our dream company. Immediately, images of a sprawling campus, with dormitories, classrooms, training areas, child care rooms and auditoriums came to my mind. I envisioned, homeless people, handicapped, single, welfare moms, dislocated homemakers and veterans being taught life and vocational skills. The anointed Christian teachers and counselors were breathing life into the almost dead ashes of countless lives. They were well-rounded, highly skilled and influential in their perspective fields and were impassioned to pass it forward to broken and destitute people. They didn’t possess pride or the spirit of Mammon, (the love of money). They had also suffered great hardships themselves: physical infirmities and tragedies. For such a time as this, Jehovah Raphha and Jehovah Jireh himself would heal, deliver and prosper these individuals.

My vocation center, AVO, (Artistic Vocations Operations), would encourage anyone with a dream or vision to enroll and participate to a Clearing house-type vetting system to be interviewed for placements and needs.

This first wonderful vision stayed in my heart while I was working towards earning my degree at Brookdale and even until after graduation. This dream stayed afresh while I fronted my first Christian band, The Promise, with Chris Durante, our lead guitarist. We were on fire for the Lord Jesus after seeing so many inmates receive Christ and became transformed right in prison. I knew this was what I loved to do. We were being invited to many NJ correctional facilities and maximum security prisons. Our invitations grew from chaplains who wanted their men to hear my testimony about the new life in Christ.

My dreams for life-transforming ministry abruptly came to a halt, when one day, I felt dizzy and my heart was violently palpitating. I was very scared, waiting to hear the results of my tests. I had Lyme disease and I was thrown in a sudden battle for my very life. That long battle turned into Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, which then turned into Candida and a near-death encounter with Carbon Monoxide poisoning, all within two years. My body and life was falling apart and with it my dreams for ministering for the Lord.

The staggering fatigue, extreme weakness and constant bronchial infections kept me tethered to deep depression and hopelessness. But God had not forgotten me. One day, one of my best childhood girlfriends called me and asked me if I’d like to go back to work part-time. Diana knew I was very weak, but she was serving part-time also with a Christian non-profit, Love in the Name of Christ. I felt impressed to call for an interview, even though I felt that it would probably be a waste of time. I felt revived and decided to test God at His word, that He was my provider.

Diana’s prayers worked because I had an interview! All I had for an interview suit was one suit I wore to work many years ago as a salesgirl at a fashion store at a the local mall. It was in decent shape and I arrived at the Love Inc headquarters positive and hopeful. I was greeted and interviewed by a gracious matron, Operations Manager, Joan Hodum and Executive Director, Carolyn Eyerman. Surprisingly, Joan was very interested hearing about my early years of nursing home and prison ministry. She also liked my suit! As they stood up to thank me for my time and shake my hand, I knew I had the position. Carolyn called me the very next day and asked me if I could start next week. Joan and she had discussed ideas for a special program to prepare welfare moms leaving welfare for the workplace. I would be mentoring them in business etiquette, resume and I would be running a boutique of beautiful, lightly used business clothing. That vision God gave me in graphic design class started to rise. I was excited.

So began my tenure as program coordinator for my business outreach, Just the Right Touch.  My hiring into this wonderful Christian organization brought me into fellowship with staff from all denominations and professional backgrounds. I was part of a family again and was overjoyed to be part of a God-ordained people-serving entity. The staff, all much older than me, treated me as a daughter and guided me in my new orientation. I loved helping to build up the broken spirits of the young women who came to my program and boutique. They were so excited to apply for jobs in beautiful, professional clothing and have a professional looking resume to hand to their prospective new employer.

I was greatly disappointed when Social Services no longer sent referred women to my business boutique and Love Inc’s board urged Carolyn to have me close shop because clients were not being served. I was very disappointed, but thankful that at least I had acquired years of solid experience, ministering and mentoring young women! I thought of God’s grace and mercy during my years of struggling with Lyme, Disease, suffering from abandonment and divorce and being unemployed for many long months, God was indeed honing me for an amazing destiny which I still didn’t know

In 2016, I was thrust into another unexpected ministry, intercession. My spiritual sister, Donna, who loved to pray, called me one day to give me the number of an intercessory pray conference line. This group, was a passionate group of men and women who felt called to pray for the elections, our next president and our nation. I had been involved with my church’s prayer group in the past, but this groups seemed to have an extraordinary unction to pray with anointing and spiritual authority. I listened first, (as a student of intercessory prayer) and then joined my prayer as my spiritual confidence rose. I was learning to overcome and take authority over the many negative forces in my life. These confident praying led to more intimacy with my Heavenly Father and Jesus and I began to believe that that same authority was to be applied to the lives of my family and friends for their healing and deliverance in my family’s’ and my life!

On the 24/7 NSCP, National Strategic Conference Prayer network, led by Pastor Ioan Piea and Maureen Bravo, we have had to address innumerable national, and global crisis, emergencies, family problems and even testimonies of answered prayers and miracles. Many, included deluded Christian brethren have been opposing and condemning President Trump’s assessment and solutions to the Caravan, to our southern border. As Christians, we are commended to provide for the widows, orphans, sick, the elderly and impoverished, but we must make sure that they indeed are in need. Too many impostors are here to cause chaos and they are overwhelming our border patrol. This is a serious threat to the safety and security of American citizens.

Many Christian and non-profit organizations are stepping in minister to the needy, but the body of Christ must prayerfully seek God’s wisdom and revelation for those who do manage to stay here and how to assure that they will assimilate into our culture and truly transition into Christ-like productivity and success.

Joseph’s story is an example of one impoverished young man who became the salvation of nations. I believe that many intercessors in our group and around the nation, who are fledgling leaders, now being being groomed and honed….for such a time as this!  The Bible doesn’t say if there were threads of national rioting or revolution, but it does say that innumerable lives were saved because of Joseph’s wisdom. For such a time as this, God brought Donald J. trump as the church’s Cyrus, to bring back righteousness and some semblance of order to America.  As the body of Christ faces this quagmire, we can be assured that if we abide in His presence and keep His precepts and commandments, He will be faithful.

Love in the Name of Christ’s mission statement could be a apt template a solution to the Caravan dilemma. Different denominations and Christian non-profit groups unite and mobilize under one umbrella. The needs of the beneficiaries would be assessed through an application process via a “Clearing House” process

Addressing the dilemma of the Caravan scenario entails the supernatural wisdom of God’s Holy Spirit. The spiritual leaders of Christ’s body need to discern the true needy ones from the malevolent impostors who seek to overrun our nation. President Trump’s greatest concern is to keep us safe. He knows the world is watching to see if we truly are the Christian nation he declares us to be.

iFrom the pit

This past week, I remembered how the Bible speaks of how building strong alliances that are unified in God’s will and anointing is the answer to all dilemmas and especially the present  caravan issue. If not addressed properly with a strategic plan, the truly needy may fall through the cracks. At Brookdale College, I foresaw these types of crisis and so envisioned my future ministry, Artistic Vocations Operations, AVO, would provide appropriate services and establish many. God’s children know that in Christ, all things are possible. I’ve never once doubted that my vision at Brookdale College was far-fetched. If God brought Andrew Wommack’s amazing vision, in Colorado, God could certainly bring Anita Ferrer’s vision!

Many of us have gotten lazy regarding facing and felling our giants. We allow fear to cripple us and then we get so overwhelmed that we give up. The Caravan crisis is nothing more daunting than Joshua and Caleb declaring, “We are well able to take the city.” Indeed, the church is more than able to confront the Caravan crisis and all that come our way. We, (the full body of Christ, in all our branches and denominations) just need to unite as one, as an alliance, so to speak. Lone rangers are always vulnerable and soon get attacked and conquered.

It may seem that darkness is spreading like an ominous canopy over the nations, with lluminati billionaires, CEO’s and music mogul, raking in unspeakable profits. There is no longer  a clear division between the righteous and the ungodly. The lines have blurred as even Christian record labels have sold out to secular labels. The principality of Mammon has tainted the lives of mega-church pastors who splurge on jet planes, multiple mansions and vintage cars. Our own veterans lie in gutters, forgotten. Other millions in third-world nation exist in squalid filth. Something has to give.

Let us see that God has given us a gracious reprieve with our president, a modern-day Joseph or Esther to stand up boldly and bring about a reformation for our badly damaged nation. May all the brothers and sisters in Christ unite to become that city on a hill and be that light to the nations  Let us aspire to be the top of the crop, in medicine, science, entertainment, fashion, health,-agriculture, the media and the financial arena, not Amazon, Google and Facebook. We are the head and not the tail.

Prayer:

Heavenly Father, we ask you to seek your wisdom so that Holy Spirit can convict us of our deception and error.  Help us to love each other, as Christ loved us and to unite in agreement, for that’s where our strength lies! We can fell the Goliath liberalism, mammon, abortion and rebellion, but first we must repent, renounce and turn your way. Help us to walk in holiness and as pleasing to you, for your ways are not our ways and your thoughts are not ours! In Jesus’ name amen.

The Gift of Time


antique-classic-clock-1095601                                                                                                                                                   December 30, 2018

At the advancing of New Year’s Eve, most of us are contemplating our future or looking back at our lives through our accomplishments or unfulfilled dreams. As I was preparing for my prayer call and looking through my worship song book, I decided to play my original songs in an effort to connect deeply in praise and worship to my Father and Jesus. As I turned the pages, my eyes fell on Psalm, 91, a yet unrecorded song, composed in Monday, September 14, 2009 at 1015 am. I burst into tears. The TMJ- Dystonia nightmare had consumed much of the quality and productivity of my life. I felt deep disappointment and some resentment, thinking about how much I could have accomplished in almost nine years without the relentless hammering. I could have published books, recorded more music and visited many more nursing homes, hospitals and correctional facilities.

I’ve always been productive, creative and aspiring and at the same time, inundated with all types of health crisis. I stop myself and focus on God, the giver of time. Instinctively, I know that if I refocus, my Heavenly Father will help me resift my perceptive. He is faithful.
Each of us is given the same twenty four hours each day. We are blessed with the gift of free will to do whatever we want with those twenty-four hours. Some of us choose to sleep and surf Facebook all day. Some choose to discipline ourselves on Heavenly endeavors and some (like witches and Satanists) discipline themselves to fast and pray their evil hexes to bring their demonic assignments to fruition. I thought about Jesus telling us to occupy until I come. So why was the church having such little influence on the culture allowing sex-trafficking, materialism, suicide and coldness of hearts to become pandemic? A powerful, Holy-Spirit church should be taking the world by storm                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                            Globally, huge technological advances swept gigantic corporations, like Apple, to China. Amazon and Itunes continue to take the lion’s share of profit. The Illuminati’s plans’ to “dumb down” floods the population like a Tsunami, through pharmakia (drugs), vaccines and environmental assaults like Glyphosate and fluoride. With all our spiritual power, many of our pastors and leaders should  not be burying their heads in the sand, refusing to guide their flocks regarding any of these political and frightening things! Meanwhile, a remnant of Prayer conference line warriors gather each day to oppose the giants of evil while many of us lazy, depressed ones snooze away in disinterested apathy.. Disappointingly, I’ve observed that most people on Facebook and other media sources have become copiers and followers, rather than innovators and inventors.

As a Christian original singer-songwriter, I’ve always wondered about my former bandmates and collaborators idolizing Jimmy Page, Jimi Hendrix Bob Marley, Eric Clapton and countless other musical influences. I learned very late in my life that many of the music icons received their inspiration\from Lucifer. Led Zeppelin is known for their satan-inspired music. I’m ashamed to admit I had my own female non-Christian influences such as Tori Amos, (who actually pledged allegiance to her lover, Lucifer), Sarah McLachlan, Joni Mitchel, Evanescence and Mariah Carey. Most of these gals all have connections with the occult/New Age. I’ve since repented and thrown out almost all of my CD collection and am about to go through my Christian music also! I  watched two videos recently that revealed the truth of Christian music’s union with ungodliness, sin and perversity. Sign the dotted line and sell your soul to satan.

I’m desiring more and more to live a pure life without any contaminants and if my music is offensive to my Father and Jesus, I’m glad to rid myself of abominations. I can’t live a double life or have allegiances with entities which are responsible for destroying our youth, marriages and families. It’s been a wakeup call to find out that people I once so respected and admired are part of a satanic group bent on destroying the planet. I cannot support their music or business. I’ve lately watched too many YouTube videos about Contemporary Christian music artists selling out to the secular, Spirit of Mammon and perversity. I wanted no part of it.
Some of the current Christian icons don’t even mention Jesus name and their lyrics are very ambiguous. You know what Jesus said if we were ashamed of Him. It’s been very disappointing, but satan indeed knows his time is very short and he has been devising even more cunning ways to get even a toe-hold in God’s children’s lives!
All of the aforementioned evils amount to the truth that many of us do not know how to number our days and walk in wisdom. We have not meditated on God’s word enough, nor have we committed His precepts to our spirits. We can only achieve wisdom through time in God’s presence. Wisdom also comes through experiencing The Holy Spirit’s fruits through nurturing one on one relationships, not through racking up friends, reposts and likes on Facebook.
Using our time (actually, it’s God’s time) wisely and mercifully manifests gifts of healing. When time is yielded to Holy Spirit, we have the victory and success where medicine, science and agriculture meet. Time is of the essence to find cures and treatments for devastating diseases. When God’s people come together in unified strength, they become the benevolent architects and builders ta o build sanctuaries where broken, poverty-stricken people can thrive and grow. Truly God has given the body all kinds of gifts for the edification of the church.

And it was He who gave some to be apostles, some to be prophets, some to be evangelists, and some to be pastors and teachers, to equip the saints for works of ministry, to build up the body of Christ. for all to reach unity in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of God, as we mature to the full measure of the stature of Christ.…Eph 4:11-13

https://www.thegospelcoalition.org/blogs/thabiti-anyabwile/use-time-wisely-because-days-are-evil/
Paul describes the glory of God’s people building upon the foundation of the Holy house of God, (Christ being the chief cornerstone). For or no one can lay a foundation other than the one already laid, which is Jesus Christ. If anyone builds on the foundation: stones, wood, hay or straw, the workmanship will be evident, because the Day will bring it to light. It will be revealed with fire, and the fire will prove the quality of each man’s work. Time is also one of the precious substances which can be benevolent or malevolent to our fellow mankind.

See then that ye walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise, Redeeming the time, because the days are evil. Wherefore be ye not unwise, but understanding what the will of the Lord is. Eph 5 15-17                                                                                                                      
So let us live our lives deliberately, with laser focus and joyous anticipation, seeking diligently God’s succinct orders. As the new year, 2019 begins, I hope to impart to my brothers and sister the discipline of making the most of our moments, minutes, hours and days, so that when we stand before our judge, Yashuah, He will open our book of life and congratulate us for bringing forth great increase from the talents we’ve been entrusted.
Here are some ideas to get you started making the most of your time.

*         Find one or two people to mentor and build up in character
Visit a local nursing home weekly or monthly and read the Bible, chat with and pray over.                                                                                                                                *        Keep a list of bedridden or chronically ill people to send a handwritten or hand-made card to. Hand write a scripture verse.
*        Make it a habit to send a card to say how much you appreciate them and/or how much their friendship means to you.
*        Instead of spending hours on Facebook or other social media, re-posting other tired and trite messages and photos, send your own original, with love.
*         Do some old fashioned fresh-air walks to the local community bulletin boards and put up some scripture postcards for people to take.
*         Order tracts and pass them out.
*        Join a minstrel group and share the Gospel one on one.

Prayer: Heavenly Father help us to utilize our time to the fullest capacity being guided by Your Holy Spirit of truth, wisdom and revelation. Let us not be copiers, but endue us with fresh creativity, insight and beauty. Let us remember to make the most of every opportunity to share you Gospel, the Good News of Jesus Christ, Yashuah. I thank you for a fresh New Year with fresh anointing, in Jesus name, amen.

Brothers and sisters in Christ, occupy until He comes! Maranatha.

THE DEADLY CONSEQUENCES, (Of Improperly Removed Mercury Amalgam Fillings)


My Tragic Story of a Dental Filling Gone Rogue October 2018

It is a beautiful fall day and I’m sitting in my room waiting for this itchy Bentonite clay to dry, so I can wash it off and move forward with my day. You may ask, why do I have clay on my face? Bentonite clay is known to remove toxins, so since I’m desperate to get this mercury out of my face, my clay application has been a part of my detoxing routine. After almost of decade of enduring tormenting, uncontrollable spasms of my throat muscles, (Platysma) and jaws. I have been on a relenting quest to solve this neurological mystery. Only just a few months ago, I found a medical journal link about an Asian woman who had the same issue as I. Imagine it taking that long to assure myself I wasn’t crazy and there had to be someone else, somewhere on this planet with a condition as mine! This lady’s solution was surgery.

So each week, I spent innumerable hours researching on the internet, anatomy photos of the face, neck and area, as well as researching everything I could find about TMJ, Dystonia and other movement disorders.

I’ve decided to write a comprehensive article on my condition which was caused by Mercury poisoning from one improperly removed amalgam filling. My misery has been so extensive and my life so drastically affected by this horrific phenomenon, that I vow to share with everyone I can so they don’t have endure the hell I’ve been through for over 11 years.

I feel it nesseasary,  as an ordained minister and journalist to make available any information that leads to wholeness and wellness. Many have no idea how toxic mercury is to the human body. Mercury is a deadly substance and yet dentists continue to fill the teeth of children and adults with it.

My husband and I were serious natural health people and we had read health articles about mercury amalgam fillings, so we decided to go to the local dentist ion our town. Today, we are regretful for our ignorance about what kind of dentist should do such a serious thing as amalgam removal. Just my one molar filling caused incredible damage and my life was turned upside down. I suffered relentless and unimaginable pain, isolation and impaired physical bodily functions.

This TMJ-Dystonia affliction also plunged my husband and I into a six thousand dollar debt for detox treatments. Our environmental MD, Dr. Rasa, trained in Dr. Klinghaddts mercury detoxifying program, was very concerned and compassionate when she saw me. She had never seen such intense symptoms in a metal-mercury issue. She did everything she could with no results.

I suffered a myriad of symptoms all relating to the compressed nerves intertwining in that jaw joint area. I had blurred vision when in certain positions, spastic tongue, (and also biting on my tongue so hard, I bled for half an hour and had excruciating pain). My masseter muscles, (chewing muscle) made me clench so hard, I cracked a back molar and had to get a crown. Other times, my mouth would open so wide, I could feel the hard tension and it hurt!

When lying in bed on my side, trying to sleep my sinuses would clog up and I could only breathe through my mouth. Most of the time, my vision is slightly blurred, but when I lay on my stomach, I can read the finest print and even see clearly the hole of the tiniest bead.  (One day, I was repairing a damaged beaded necklace and found that in my focusing on the beadwork, my throat and jaw muscles relaxed)! It was glorious to now get a respite from the tormenting and distracting pulling of my platysma muscles.

My symptoms were so distracting, troublesome and often so painful, I would have certainly had suicidal tendencies were it not for my intimate relationship with my Heavenly Father and Jesus. At the end of each day, I could wait to be entirely unconscious so I could enjoy some peace. It was a struggle every day to not speak death or negativity upon my coming into consciousness. My immediate thoughts would be, “I don’t want to have to go through another day again suffering this torment”. The average person without the Lord would ask for death. I also was getting more adept at praying fervent and victorious prayers to my Heavenly Father for strength and grace not to go insane with the pain. Without God also, I would be as mean as a snake because of my pain and discomfort. It is incredibly difficult living with a movement disorder. For me, there is no relief and no cure, (except for God). I minister to many Facebook Dystonia (and Lyme disease people), having also suffered from this vicious ailment). They suffer with isolation, damaged marriages and family lives and being unable to live their lives in a normal and productive fashion.

Please watch Dr Nicoles informative video. She is a blessing:

The Damaging Physical Manifestations of Mercury Poisoning

Platysma-TMJ Dystonia  also took a great toll on the teeth. The bruxism caused  my upper and lower teeth to clench and at other times the jaws open and close very wide every second or so. That makes it hard for me to eat, (and I avoid eating in public, because the food falls out of my mouth). Almost the whole first year my teeth clattered so hard that one of my back molars got cracked and I had to spend money on a crown. My wonderful holistic dentist, Dr Piela, from Lake Como, NJ insisted I pull it, but I lost a molar 15 years ago and didn’t want two empty spaces, (making a huge gap). And the possibility of a cavitation. I have problems with the tooth and either have to stick a hot needle to release the pus, or go to Dr Piela for an Ozone shot in that area. The Bentonite clay has been a help in keeping the infection and inflammation down. This bizarre ailment has made me go through the more crazy things to deal with.

During the first several years of this Dystonia situation, two different neurologists ordered MRIs. One prescribed pain drugs and muscle relaxants, (which I told him would not give me relief). The other neurologist give a quick glance and suggested my problem could be related to my past Lyme Disease episode. No one even approached the idea that my jaw could be dislocated. My husband Mark was severely affected by my trauma and pursued every modality he thought could help, including acupuncture, magnets, special TMJ supplements and Rife machine. None helped at all. It was becoming a great crisis for both of us and affected our marriage in ways we never thought of.

About eight years into the TMJ Dystonia nightmare, I was feeling excruciating pain in the other jaw joint. (Around the end of my first year after being diagnosed with Dystonia), the right jaw also became extremely greatly affected and I had to put heat and ice several times a day to endure the pain. I could feel an abnormal bump when I felt that area. Many times, sobbing hysterically, I would beg Mark to find another doctor to help me.

We couldn’t even enjoy activities a normal couple enjoyed, a nice meal at a fine restaurant, bike-riding, socializing, movie theaters and even a car ride was unfeasible because of the pain and discomfort of sitting up for a long period.
http://amalgam.org/education/scientificevidenceresearch/mercuryamalgamfillingsmajorfactorperiodontaldiseaseoralhealthproblems/

I suffered other manifestations of mercury and metal poisoning, including mineral deficiencies and digestive/ malabsorption problems. The condition of my hair, skin and nails was terrible, dry and brittle and as of late, my hair has not grown and has even broken up to the extent that I have almost shoulder length hair instead of the very long, luxurious mane I used to sport. The mercury seems to have accumulated because of my love for tuna fish, which I ate several times for the protein content. Under my new detox regimen, (nutritional Balancing), no tuna or fish is allowed.

When Mark and I lived at our water front home, we did twice weekly FAR sauna sessions in our downstairs music room. He had also reminded me to stay on distilled water, (I’ve been faithfully drinking distilled water since I married him) and now I am certain that this was a mistake because it robbed my bones and joints of the necessary minerals and nutrients it needed. Today, I don’t advise anyone to drink distilled water without the guidance of skilled natural physician who has expert experience in detoxification. I’m paying a heavy price for following  wrong health advice.

The past year and a half, the TMJ-Dystonia issue was unmanageable and I begged Mark to take me to a Doctor Jeffrey Brown, who shares a Sleep-TMJ practice in Church Falls Virginia. I’d done much research about jaw joint damage and treatments and found amazing You Tube videos of the work Dr Brown and Dr Stack were doing with a Gelb mouth appliance for Tourette’s syndrome and TMJ sufferers. I was convinced that the Gelb appliance was the only thing I’d seen which had the effect of stabilizing a spastic and maladjusted jaw joint. The mouth piece itself was a staggering $4,000, (and out of our budget) but I was constantly in excruciating pain and the quality of my life was worsening. Something had to give or I’d be good as a vegetable. I was desperate for some relief, from the teeth grinding and the opening-closing movement of my mouth really hurt my jaw joints.

I was so sure that I had a jaw issue that I asked my primary care physician to refer me to a specialist who could order an MRI of my jaw joints. He agreed and I made my appointment with Dr Carlson, EMT specialists. I greatly anticipated the MRI results and as I had known, the MRI showed extensive damage and no more cartilage. I sobbed hysterically when I shared the details with Mark when he got home from work. At least my suspicions were confirmed so I could move forward with a treatment.

Mark and I finally drove to Church Falls, VA for my first appointment, X-rays and mouth appliance fitting with Dr Jeffrey Brown, TMJ-Sleep Center. I told Dr Jeffrey, I believed the integrity of my head, mouth and throat tissues were compromised because of the mercury spillage and here was the result. I also mentioned that being I was a professional vocalist for many years, the belting and long hours of performing made my jaw joint “pop” and that must have been the joint getting out of the socket. So much for a vigorous singing career and drinking distilled water.

What have I learned from this health crisis? I lost so much living my formerly creative and active life. My confidence has plummeted, because the facial and mouth spasms are so apparent, strangers stare at me in the grocery store, the library or even just walking down the street for a walk. Singing, which usually comes so easily and naturally is now a physical feat of exhaustion. My Platysma and SCM muscles are so tight, I can barely breathe or get air. I believe the mercury may have also made me extremely sensitive to EMF and WIFI, as well as bright lights.

Thankfully, my strong prayer life and a life of walking in thankfulness and praise to my Heavenly Father and Jesus has kept me sharp enough to continue my journal blogs- on WordPress and performing-recording my compositions. I keep encouraging myself, remembering my upscale Jazz gigs and teaching my classes. One day, soon, I will be doing what I love uplifting people! Though being housebound has been a bummer and the vicious spasms have prevented me from bringing joyful music to the elderly residents at Buttonwood Hospital. I often struggle with feeling ugly and freakish, but I refuse to allow this brutal beast to keep me down forever. There are too many people I need to teach, encourage and inform on health and wellness in Christ. That is my hope, Christ is my healer.

I hope my sharing all the details of my mercury amalgam filling disaster will make you nervous and concerned enough to carefully research a highly qualified Holistic dentist to remove you or your loved ones mercury filling. Please make sure to watch the informative videos. I want to thank Dr Nocole for her excellent video. She is the kind of dentist you can trust to protect your health and future. I also recommend my dentist Dr Elizabeth Piela, Lake Como, NJ for east coast people.

I’d like to mention that many Cancer survivors fare better than victims of mercury poisoning. Their neurological dysfunctions and TMJ issues may be misdiagnosed and many thousands of dollars can be wasted for treatments that don’t address the true issue. I hope this article helps you to make good decisions about your dental health and treatments. Please feel free to contact Dr Nicole, Dr Piela or me to answer any questions you may have. God bless you and stay healthy!

 

 

 

TEACH US TO NUMBER OUR DAYS

Journal Entry, October 1, 2018

A usual day, making my usual cup of Hazlenut coffee. But today I am eagerly waiting to see about the recovery of the baby squirrel I brought home yesterday.  I noticed a note from my husband, right next to the coffee maker. Mark usually didn’t leave me notes unless it was important or for me to do an errrand for him. He was  as concerend for the baby suqirrel as I was that she be hydrated and fed. The note said, “Honey bun, the baby suqirrel did not make it”.

I burst into tears and rusheed to the bedroom, in hopes that perhapos the baby squirrel was still asleep. She indeed had died during the night. Her eyes were partially closed and she looked so peaceful.  AS I stared at her tiny body and beautiful bushy tail,  I wondered why Father God did not choose to restore her. I had only known her a day and a half, but I was grieving as if she were a pet. I suddenly felt felt disturbed and nauseous.

3 kitties in a basket2
Just a short day and a half ago, I was enjoying the beautiful Indian summer Sunday afternoon on my scooter. My favorite place to roll down an incline was at a vacated building which used to be a bank. I was riding uphill on the driveway and a tiny baby squirrel stopped in in front of me, in the middle of the driveway. She was moving very slow and I got closer to take a look. She stared at me then stopped, as if she was too weak to walk. She then looked at me and gave a long sorrowful squeal as if to say, “Help me”. I melted. Then I watched her struggle to stand. She steadied herself and slowly walked to a grassy area where she lay down. Immediately a swarm of flies settled on her soft coat. I became angry that they were so greedy they couldn’t wait for her to die before laying larva to eat her. I scootered home as quickly as I could, praying that she would not die on me before I came back for her.

When I came back with the truck, she was laying on her side with those wretched flies all over her. I managed to scoop her up into a plastic tray. When I got her home, she was not afraid of me. I gave her a little water with an eye dropper and mixed some wet cat food. She didn’t even struggle or fight me. When I retired for the night, I believed when would be more chipper when I awoke the next morning to attend her.
The next morning, Mark was anxious to see Bitty, the baby squirrel I told him about. He also was smitten by her and mentioned that when she recovered she would join the other squirrels that frequented our back yard. I remembered the time I rescued to white ferret while on the way home from a recording session. It was a very dark night, but I was able to make out a small white creature rolling out from under the car ahead of me. I stopped my car to see if the animal survived and found it was a white ferret. There was no blood but I could tell she was terrified. I went to my car and grabbed a music stand and crate and was able to scoop her into the crate. When I got her home, she was relaxed and ended up adjusting beautifully to Mark and the other five cats. Ghost became a loved member of our family.

Fast Forward two days Later
Bitty’s demise made me feel disconnected and empty. I knew from experience that dying pets always made me fall into lengthy periods of nonproductively and since I was part of an intercessory prayer group, I had to stay somewhat sharp. The Bible was always my source of strength when I lost pets and my eyes fell on Moses .Psalm 90. Verse 12 always made me stop and ponder the concept of numbering our days. I wondered why Father didn’t choose to revive Bitty, our any of the precious cats who comforted me over the years. I’ve been walking with the Lord since 1983 and have come a long way in my perception and experiencing God. Today, the truth and reality of the brevity of life is crystal clear.

Bitty SQUIRREL

Whether in joy, celebration, soberness or accepting death, God is still God and His strength is made perfect in the fragility of our grieving.  Intimacy with Him is the only way we can address great losses in our lives and move forward in strength and purpose. For me and all those who passionately seek Jehovah God, the Eternal One and His son, Jesus the Christ, Life in Him is the only life worth living.

Bitty’s rescue and death reminded me of our life, friendships and existence, ever-changing., and sometimes ending.  As a journalist, I ask my heavenly Father to use my gifts, (both tragedies and triumphs) to guide, encourage and empower those He sends my way. How I desire to express my emotions, perceptions and responses through His divine perspective. One of the most precious attributes He tempers is compassion and tenderness. Mark remarked to me how he was moved to see me so gently try to nourish Bitty.

Bikini Dies, October 3, 2018
Two days after Bitty’s death and ready to greet another day,  Mark leaft me another note on the kitchen counter. This note said that he was taking Bikini, our long-haired, gentle tan and grey tabby, to the vet. While my coffee was brewing , I called him at work to see how Bikini made out. A  long pause, “Kini’s gone,”  he said softly. I burst out crying.

Mark described his dismal morning.  Our other cat, a male,  Tiny, was meowing despairingly  in the laundry room,. He found Bikini laying on the tile floor, convulsing in a pool of her urine. Alarmed, he took her to the car, in hopes of taking her to the vet near his job. When he arrived at the vets, two female attendants were there, but they weren’t allowed to open the door and let Mark in with Bikini. One, took one look at Bikini and said, “It’s too late. She’s clearly on the way out” It was about 5:30 am when Bikin expired. I was sobbing loudly as Mark described driving to work with Bikini dead on the passenger seat.

The rest of the day,   I was nuaseous and sorrowful.. This was getting to be too much with losing three friends just last month. My daily battle with my condition and the incessant pulling of my Platysma and SCM muscles in my throat made my life all the more taxing. Every trauma took a lot out of me. The recent nights were terrible also as I’d be woken up several times during the night.  The stress of mourning Bitty’s and Bikin’s death didn’t help  my muscles. II was unable to  get REM sleep for hours.  I desperately needed a break.

I went out into the yard to rake leaves to vent my grief and called one of the matron intercessors from our prayer group. She had recently lost and was grieving over her beloved dog, Holly, so I knew I could confide in her about losing my sweet Bikini. Pastor Pam and I prayed and her prayer gave me comfort. She shared that God reminded her not to drown in her mourning and focus on moving forward. I then called another dear spiritual sister, Sandra, who was also all too familiar with losing her beloved cat right around the time she lost her mother. It was so grateful to be able to share my burden. I thought about Job crying out with the terrible news of losing all his children.

Bikini was with for about 12 years and was the subject of many beautiful photographs that I will cherish. Bikini’s meek and tender personality was unlike some other cats, who growled or scratched out if provoked or if their food bowl was threatened. Just last week, Bikini’ became more attached to me and would sit in the middle of the kitchen floor and stare up at me while I cooked our meals. Mark took Bikin’s death especially hard, blaming himself that he didn’t have her checked earlier. I assured him that Bikini died of Cancer and her symptoms were similar to my beloved white calico, Baby-Baby. The Lord gives and the Lord takes away, but blessed be the name of the Lord. My comfort during the loss of a beloved loved on or pet is that one day we will see Jesus face to face. My scripture verse of great comfort is Revelation 21:4

He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”

Those of us who have accepted Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior will be reunited with our loved ones and I believe our beloved pets. Oh, the joys of our covenant relationship with our Heavenly Father. We will enjoy the glorious blessings of eternity in Heaven in a glorified body where there is no decay, accidents, sin or death. I pray, my friend that you too will invite Christ into your heart and life. So you can be assured of reuniting with your loved ones.

MOVING FORWARD

MOVING FORWARD From Offenses and Woundings

For many of us, conflict and strife are two of the most difficult areas to address. The inability to confidently address criticism and conflict  stifles our ability to soar upward into our divine fullness. The book of Proverbs is chock full of warnings to be cautious in our communication. Being slow to speak and waiting for divine wisdom for understanding has been challenging for me. I grew up in a family atmosphere of intense conflict between my German mother and Puerto-Rican father, whose relationship started to weaken when my father took on great responsibilities as the vice president of the Spanish Fraternity. His time and financial investments to the Spanish Community were straining our family and mom and dad argued constantly. I was very sensitive as a young girl and my parents arguing was very distressing for me. I also had to endure my mother’s temper tantrums where she regularly overturned the furniture, tore apart everything in my two younger sisters’ rooms and gave them beatings. This abusive environment of fear and anger became of stronghold in me. I was terrified of angry, mean people. At the first sign of a negative body language or facial expression, my stomach would turn and I became nauseous. I must admit,  my communication  style was challenged because of my nervousness in the presence of angry people.  This stronghold intensified during my first marriage where I endured domestic violence.  My fear to express disatisfaction or  uphold my boundaries  was firmly established. and my husband’s rage when I stated my opiinion caused me to keep m mouth shut because I didn’t want to be attacked.

We’ve all suffered rejection, abandonment and/or abuse and the extent of our spiritual growth-healing depends on our willingness to allow Christ to heal the deeply-embedded, negative strongholds of our mind and soul. In my life as a creative person,  (many artists, musicians and people in creative fields) feel a need to escape the sordid aspects of reality. Non creative people can also seek refuge in certain comforts such as sports, drugs, alcohol, shopping, food addictions and pornography. This is natural for us to feel safe from excruciating mental anguish or a sexual trauma such as molestation or rape. Those of us from extremely abusive backgrounds believe that the only way to cope with our painful past is to find refuge in the beauty and wonder of our creative endeavors and projects. Success in our careers and creativity is a good thing, but staying stuck in the plateau of woundedness and the trauma is not.

For me it has been a very long and painful road to spiritual freedom and joy because there were few intuitive and anointed pastors and/or deliverance counselors who could help me accurately identify negative strongholds. Even less to find are those who willingly guide a wounded individual to Christ’s wholeness. With the kingdom of hell becoming more aggressive than ever before, (satan knows his time is very short). God’s people are getting a triple dose of attacks in every area of life. It’s rare for any child of God not to be suffering some attack. Strife and division seems to be the main area satan has been using to create division and weakness in the body of Christ. The way around this is continual time in God’s presence, repentance and being accountable to elders.

The law of Love

1 Cor. 13 4-8 is really the formula which builds and strengthens the body, but often harder than it seems. Agape love allows no pride and convicts us when refuse to be wrong. We say, “Why should I acquiesce to him/her?” The spirit of offense is strong and often uses the element of surprise. You’re caught off guard when he strikes and you’re trembling in anger. Offense must be taken captive by Christ’s authority.
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away.

A fellow intercessor sister and I were praying about how to address various weak areas our brthren needed to address. I told her how disappointed II was about several incidents which occurred with very dear and mature prophetic Christian sisters in my circle. Each incident involved a disagreement where both parties responded in quick anger. There was no resolution and the two decided not to bother with each other again. This breaking of relationship and avoiding each other disturbs me and disturbs the delicate atmosphere of unity in God’s family. We may glibly disregard our decision to break relationship with a brother or sister, but that small offense breaches the circle of love. We may not immediately feel or see the sting of offense-rejection, but it’s seed  takes root nonetheless and it opens the door to other demonic strongholds.

Pastor Derrik Prince teaches how just one rejection can swing open a door allowing other demonic stronghold to take root. This is why repentance is so necessary. When we are unified in love, we operate in great power and achieve God’s greatest miracles, healing and deliverance. When we have disagreements so sharp that we cut off the relationship and go on our merry way, we lose the opportunity to grow in the area of resolving conflict. We are as iron sharpening iron and Father is pleased when we conquer that pride spirit and seek reconciliation and resolution. With God all things are possible and when we come together in prayer, with the intention of resolving and unifying, we will be building bridges and healing wounded or misunderstood hearts.

Let us never forget that satan is cunning and has studied mankind for eons. He knows exactly how to s get a toehold in even the most well-intentioned. Conquering offense can often be difficult for people raised in angry, alcoholic and dysfunctional backgrounds. They often have deep-rooted strongholds of unworthiness and inferiority. Their mothers may have scorned, “You’re no good” or “You’ll never amount to anything.” If these declarations are not renounced and broken off, those voices will continue to harass and maim. The child will grow up to be an adult who is fearful of constructive criticism of any kind. When questioned, they respond immediately with raised dukes to fend imagined, crippling blows to their fragile self-worth. Those voices taunt incessantly, threatening their marriage and/or family. These negative accusing voices come from the pits of hell.  Strongholds of rejection and unworthiness can only be banished by daily meditating and declaring God’s truth about His precious children  who are created to do good works!

Learn to address feelings of shame, anxiety and/or unworthiness with God’s word. For those of us who have been raised in abuse and unhealthy homes, we must make wholeness and God’s word a priority. Healing from unhealthy influences may need help from strong, positive mentors. Learn not to be ashamed and defensive when questioned or criticized. Learn to recognize pride when he it rises up. Pride separates, but love unites. Don’t let pride bar us from admitting we don’t have all the answers or we made a mistake. Be sensitive to Holy  Spirit’s nudge when ou quickly  respondi inappropriately, angrilly or with unwaranted suspicion. Give people the benefit of the doubt that they are not always out to get you.

Repentance (humility) are not dirty words and we should never be ashamed to get on our faces, cry out in deep humility and ask Father to reveal our shortcomings. Repentance is cleansing and we grow in His grace when we are transparent. In one of my group prayer battalions, we start out our conference call with confessing our sins and weaknesses to each other.  This was a new thing to me, but found after a few weeks, how it draew my sisters and I closer together and made us more compassionate and prayerful for each other!

Repentance should be as natural as doing a detox or fast for our physical bodies. When we cleanse our body through daily repenting, we do not hinder the flow of Holy Spirit or block Him from blessing us with His conviction and gracious deliverance! My prayer for the body of Christ, is that we work on being transparent and honest with each other. Sin and iniquities root and flourish when we keep our sins and weaknesses hidden. The Bible says we are to confess our sins and weaknesses with each other daily.  All too often,  I see and hear about episodes where our Christian brethren display rage and  are vindictive on Facebook and other public forums. This is a very poor witness to non-believers and grieves our heavenly Father. Especially damaging is strife and division about political issues and gossip. A wise, gracious person would have nothing to do with strife because it weakens the bond of fellowship. We need to share our views respectfully and if the disagreement is too intense, then we must agree to disagree and avoid the subject for the sake of peace.

Brothers and sisters, we need to get it together because we are in the end of the end times and time is short. The eternal destinies of millions are at the precipice of decision and our demeanor must be Christ-alluring, a fragrance in the stench of pride and worldliness. When we are dedicated to unity in our King Jesus, satan cannot get a toehold. Pride in us is insidious and let us remember that it sneaks up even in the best of us. Let us not be afraid to be wrong or uniformed and let us ask God for HIs divine wisdom!

LYNCH MOB


frenzied violent mob

The stench of death, blood and raw flesh permeated the air as a young man fell onto the dusty ground. The wicked lashes of a metal and bone spiked whip gouged hunks of flesh again and again as the young man gripped the stone post. Each agonized moan seemed to ignite the lynch mob’s rage and pleasure even more. The torturing session continued with loud whoops from the torturers and as each lash came down on the victim’s upper body, neck and face, tiny fountains of blood squirted upward. It was a grizzly sight to anyone watching and it was even more astounding that the young man continued to endure, without even trying to defend himself.

Many of us have seen a lynch mob scene, where a frenzied mob dictates the fate of a victim. No one comes forward to defend the victim, nor shows any compassion. In fact, the unbridled rage of the crowd leaps on the casual bystander and they also join in. What is this spirit of chaos and violence and are lynch mobs a thing of the past?

Lynch mobbing is alive and well in the twenty-first century and is already a major issue in many European countries.. One  scene, a lone woman without a proper head scarf is cat-called out, groped and often gang-raped right in the streets. Here in America patriots, conservatives and Christians are also being targeted, riled up by deceived political leaders. Family members of alternative and conservative news reporting agencies and journalists are being threatened and stalked.
The head of the Anti-Christ rises higher and faster and we are heading towards a revolution which will divide our nation if we do not address it. It’s becoming a frightening reality that free speech by conservatives, patriots and Christians are not allowed. If we allow our voices to be censored, we will lose our gift of free speech

So why this hatred?

Truth became a curse punishable by torture and/or death since that pivotal time in humanity’s history when Pilate faced Jesus, He asked, “What is truth?” Pilate could not understand the plan of God for humanity through His Son, Jesus the Christ and multitudes today are still blinded to that truth. We see this through the collapsing economy of socialist nations like Venezuela and North Korea. We see this through the lack of vetting of immigrants pouring into formerly prosperous European nations, (with many intent upon collapsing the status quo) and establishing Sharia Law. And we see the weakening of the Godly fabric of righteousness, order and godliness, facilitated by our founding fathers influences. The  toxic spillage  spewing from Pandora’s box   has already severely damaged our nation, and we’ve strayed so far from our forefather’s template that soon it may be too late to salvage America.

One symptom of the diminished of our nation is  many of our youth’s inability to think critically. So many young adults and even mature people have no moral compass and have no idea of the difference between good and evil. I recently watched a report where some reporters were questioning a group of young people about what they were protesting. Not one was able to say what they were angry about!. Another report showed college-aged adults being asked, “Do you know what the three branches of government are?” Not one knew. Some of the answers given were downright juvenile. And this is our future?

Besides the lack of critical thinking, is the total disregard for consequences of illogical actions, poor choices and decisions. There is little concern to delay  gratification for the sake of a better future for their children and grandchildren. They could care less about the world their offspring will have to face in the future.
Folks, we are truly  facing a crisis of  diminished intellect and wisdom and it only gets worse. The universal umbrella, the internet and technology has been successful in numbing  our minds and souls. Walking down any busy city street, people stroll zombie-like connected to their Smartphones. Long past are the days when family’s would meet at the supper table to share and connect with each other or the days when workers looked forward to eating and catching up in the cafeteria or lunchroom.

Nowadays all information, identity and even the meaning of life are gleaned from the internet. Thinking for oneself and being creative and/or inspired are rare commodities to this modern generation. The information and opinions of present trendsetters, politicians,  media reporters are accepted on the spot and rarely questioned for accuracy or truth. Alarmingly, those who embrace Christian ideals are being targeted.  The liberal media is seeking to vilify and  defame the reputations of  stanch conservatives and it’s becoming unsafe to enjoy a night on the town or a quiet  evening at a favorite restaurant. If we are not careful and take action soon, we could be seeing events similiar to Saint Steven’s, (one of our earliest martyrs), Acts 7

I liken the  rebellious demonstrators to uncivilized plebeian,s asserting their erroneous (and demonic) outbursts in the belief that they are doing what is admirable.  They sincerely beleive that it’s their right to express their unbridled, anger, frustration and hatred with brutality and bloodshed.  In some urban areas of our larger cities, you would be targeted for a good beating. if you are white, conservative, Christian or a patriot wearing a certain type of baseball cap or t-shirt. More angst is being stoked by some deceived leaders of congress and the senate. I never thought I’d see the day where freedom of speech by good people speaking truth would result in violence, hatred and bloodshed.

Some questions we should be asking is, “What is the purpose of a protest rally and what do you plan to achieve by protesting? We might look to the Biblical book of wisdom in the Bible, the book of Proverbs, and find out what truth really is: and how it should be expressed.

  1The proverbs of Solomon son of David, king of Israel: Proverbs
        2 for gaining wisdom and instruction;   for understanding words of   insight;
        3 for receiving instruction in prudent behavior,    doing what is right and just      and fair; 4 for giving prudence to those who are simple,[a    knowledge and discretion wisdomto the young—5 let the wise listen and add to their learning,    and let the discerning get guidance.

How do we judge a person, group of agenda? Jesus said it plainly,

    “You will know them by their fruits.” Mat 7:16.

The fruits don’t fall far from its tree. Jesus also told us how to judge a good or evil person.

              A good man out of the good treasure of his heart brings forth good; and an evil  man out of the evil [a]treasure of his heart brings forth evil. For out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks. Luke 6:45

If ones heart of full of kindness, mercy, blessing and encouragement, they will express those good fruits to positively contribute. If ones heart has swelled up with unmforgiveness, bitterness, resentment and rage, those attributes will spill out ion negative expressions of slander, jealousy, violence and even murder.

Wisdom, true wisdom can only be received, lived out and bearing excellent fruit by those who are willing to seek her like a deeply buried treasure. These are those who walk in dignity, righteousness and grace. These are those who humble themselves enough to acquiesce their will to a higher Power, the Almighty God and Jesus Christ. These are the ones who ponder their eternal destiny and submit their will in accordance to God’s will. These are the ones who hope that when they die, they will have left their offspring a legacy of love.

Here is where wisdom comes, in. Do we  slow ourselves down from the  hurried pace of our lives and soul search? Do we ask ourselves, “Am I a child of the light or a child of darkness?” We are either for Christ or against Him. There is no middle ground.  It’s one or the other. I wonder if some of these demonstrators sleep at night after they spent their day, stalking and beating people up for wearing  a Make America Great Again t-shirt. Here’s some food for thought for them

And I saw the dead, great and small, standing before the throne. And                            there were open books, and one was the book of Life. And the   dead    were  judged according to what was in the books  Rev. 20:12

So you don’t believe there will be a judgement day or even a God who will judge? If you’ve not accepted Christ as your Lord and Savior and find yourself standing before the Bema Seat, Christ as Judge) you will find out about what eternity is like…. And eternity is a long time to be wrong.

The young man, you read about at the beginning of this blog, who was being tortured, made sure to endure to the very end. He allowed himself to be violently lynched by the crazed mob even though he was innocent. He gave His own life so you did not have to make a wrong turn at the horrific side of eternity. That young man, Jesus Christ, the blessed Lamb of God, paid ,in full, all your sins. Many have already joined his cause, God’s Heavenly kingdom of righteousness and  the harvest of souls.

Many righteous ones will be lynched and martyred for their Christian faith if we do not fight for and  keep our right to free speech and the Gospel of Jesus Christ.  The hateful anti-Christ agenda is spreading its roots disguised as a progressive and benevolent ideology.  It will eventually result on genocide, communism and the utter downfall of America.  These proponents of the New world order will seek to obliterate everything that has to do with purity,  truth and Godly righteousness, (particularity the unborns’ right to life).. They will seek to hunt us down and believe they doing a  noble thing.

My friend,  I hope that you are a seeker of truth, which can only be found through diligent searching as for a priceless treasure. Treasures often are hidden or buried deep, but when finally exhumed are replete with joy and celebration.This is the legacy of the Kings and Priests of God.

PRAYER, The Double-Edged Sword


Michael teh Archangel defaring satan-1

Note This article is not for scoffers, mockers and those who disbelieve there is a God, a devil and demonic spirits roaming and destroying mankind. This expository will elaborate on the efficacy of focused and deliberate prayer, coupled with steadfast faith. If you are born-again in Christ, you need to consider this teaching.

Let’s start at the beginning,
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.  John 3:16

When Adam and Eve committed the first sin, by eating of the fruit of the tree of good and evil, they literally handed their dominion over the earth to satan, (Lucifer). Our parents’ sin catapulted all humanity into chaos, separation from our heavenly Father and spiritual death. Despite the devastating consequences, we know that God had a plan to bring his creation back to Himself, by sending His own perfect, Son, Jesus the Christ, to be the sacrificial lamb of cleansing, resurrection and communion. The greatest act which happened to all mankind was Jesus’ victorious resurrection and His redeeming us back to our Father God!. This is the glory of those born-again in Christ! We are now adopted into Christ’s glorious heritage and family and are co-inheritors of all God”s blessings and provisions. This is indeed something we can celebrate and teach others about.  Right now,  Abba  God ( Daddy, in Aramaic)  awaits as many of His sons and daughters to come home to enjoy intimacy through Jesus.

So here we are, many thousands of years after Jesus’ resurrection and victorious dominion over sin,  death and eternal separation from our Heavenly Father . Many have come to the cross, and have come home, but still, innumerable others have chosen to deny God’s precious gift of salvation and communion with God,  Jesus Christ and Holy Spirit. God has blessed His children with a vehicle, prayer

The earnest prayer of a righteous person has great power and produces wonderful results. James 5:16

This scripture doesn’t say the prayers of just any person. He can call himself a Christian, be of a certain denomination or a particular church prays with insincere motives and who really doesn’t seek God’s face. Jesus blasted many of the Pharisee because their prayers were, e lengthy and pious but their hearts were far from God. In many places in the Bible, God tells us to be diligent when we seek Him. God was very particular about communion with him

But from there you will search again for the LORD your God. And if you search for him with all your heart and soul, you will find him. Duet 4:29. Part of growing in our intimacy with God is regularly taking an honest spiritual inventory of our spiritual journey and ask ourselves, “Am I sincerely connecting with Abba’s heart?”

Often, when I approach Abba in my prayer closet, I think to myself, “I don’t feel anything. I don’t believe Father is listening and I feel like a hypocrite or automaton.” When I feel very distant from Father, I back off and come back later when I can focus. I cannot bear to come into His presence with hypocrisy or feeling detached. For may of us, we often feel God is far away, but He will draw near if we sincerely seek His precious face! So often,  because of this movement neurological battle I endure, I cannot connect. Here is where Holy Spirit is always willing to help. I must be honest, without Holy Spirit’s help I could not abide in intimate communion with Abba or be able to even compose a blog  such as this.

Jesus promised us that when He left, he wouldn’t leave us as orphans. He would send the comforter.But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. John 14:26. .
Prayer then, coupled with Holy Spirit’s revelatory unction is God’ channel of intimate communion with his sons and daughters.

I accepted Christ in 1983 and have been part of many Pentecostal, charismatic and Assembly of God church families where I learned the basics. Because of lack of information and deep, Holy Spirit revelation and anointing, I struggled with persistent health issues and the many traumatic events of my life. I was not defeated but I was not victoriously overcoming as my Bible and scriptures promised. I knew something was missing. Something was wrong and I continued to cry out and ask God for divine help!. I was always a woman of prayer and was committed to pray, but I lacked a major component: fellowship with other like-minded, anointed and spirit-filled prayer warriors! Spirit-filled here is the key to a vigorous and victorious prayer life and faith journey. Without the power of the third person of the triune Godhead, we really are helpless and fruitless!

Fast forward 30 years from 1983, my faith journey prayer life and intercessory prowess grows by leaps and bounds. Because of my persistent, asking, seeking and knocking,  I  weekly learn miraculous and divine things from Pastor Augusto’s ministry, The Appearance, Pastor Sandra Gonzalez, Spirit-Filled Life Ministries and the anointed 24/7 NSCP national  intercessor phone conference line group, led my Pastor Eon Peia and Mother Maureen Bravo. These past several years I’vbe experienced the tremendous efficacy of prayer. It is powerful when we pay passionately and with authority to our Heavenly Father who awaits us in the great throne room of grace and power!

How prayer works:

The most successful prayers are heart-felt, nurtured in a intimate relationship with God.’ Although Father can and will hear and answer prayers from new believers
God’s angelic host can be dispatched to help when we ask God in prayer for their help. Psalm 91:11 NLT

God’s word, the Holy scriptures, are powerful. They are able to cut through Satan’s curses, assignments and attacks.. When we fervently believe, we  accept hat power or it won’t manifest! Jesus told us that Father would answer our prayers. You can ask for anything in my name, and I will do it, so that the Son can bring glory to the Father. John 14:13

Prayer is intensified when joined by other like-minded, spirit-filled believers.

Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching. Heb 10:25

I cannot stress enough how crucial it is abide within a group of anointed believers. It is beneficial to find a good church where the gifts of the spirit manifest and unfortunately, these powerful, spirit-filled churches are few. How do you know if the church or group is anointed and spirit-filled? You examine the fruits. Are they full of the love and power of Holy Spirit? For some of us, the process of examining fruits may be a lengthy process, but if we ask the Holy Spirit, He will reveal and guide us into all wisdom and revelation. We must also be wary of churches or groups, (cults) which manifest signs and wonders., but which are copied by satan).  Satan is very powerful and can try to imitate the work of the Holy Spirit. Examine the fruit, whether it is good or bad!  We must ask Holy Spirit for discernment

God performs His word when we declare them in faith!

The LORD said to me,  (Jeremiah) “You have seen correctly, for I am watching to see that my word is fulfilled. Jer. 1:2 NIV

Pastor Derrik Prince has a wonderful video on Declaring God’s word. He knows firsthand how to demolish the satanic stronghold on this earth. God’s word is our sledgehammer and our double-edged sword. .

The Power of Proclamation, Derrik Prince

Applying the Blood of Jesus to our prayers, loved ones and everyone in our circle of contact

Teacher-Prophetess Billye Brim teaches on the power of Jesus blood.

 

Our responsibility should be to passionately explore the whole gamut of the spiritual realm and apply its precepts and protocol to our daily lives. Only by focused, relentless and courageous effort will we be able to thrive in the hostile spiritual atmosphere we abide in at present. Everyday, countless millions are hindered, tormented and/or killed by demonic spirits and the battle becomes even more daunting as more evil spirits are released from the abyss. Now is not the time for God’s people to relax or turn their backs on God. The lives of our relatives, co-workers, neighbors and everyone we rub shoulders with, depend on our Spirit-anointed prayers and intercessions.
