The Anointing Breaks the Yoke


While  seeking t teaching series from one of my  Pastors, Augusta Perez, Appearance Ministries, on the YouTube channel, my eyes happened on the row of recommended videos. My eyes caught the vision of a man with deformed lips and I had to see his story.

Within the first 10 minutes, I was moved to compassion about the  daunting, yet powerful journey of Alex Lewis. I know it is no coincidence that I’m compelled to follow  God;’s leaning to compose another blog.  Far into Alex’s story, I am amazed by his fortitude, courage and determination not to succumb to suicide or curse God. This precious man’s story encourages me in my own daunting health journey from mercury poisoning and TMJ-Dystonia from an improperly removed amalgam filling 12 years ago, (2007).

The more I witness his companion’s strength and devotion to him in all  his stages of surgery, uncertainty and difficulty, the more I  cherish how God has been all too gracious to me. Although my journey into the minority of “special needs” adults doesn’t quite compare to the drastic changes and challenges of Alex, I can all too attest that a catastrophic health condition rocks not only your world, but the world of you companion and children. In Alex’s case, his devoted lady seems never to be resentful, cruel or negligent and manages to juggle the couple’s business and managing Alex’s affairs.

For those who do not live with a disabling condition, ( including me before Dystonia) we often take our life and health for granted. We often complain more than we praise God and we often do not honor and appreciate those around us who are there for us and helping us. In Alex’s case, his  plummet into severe disability caused him to remember who he was before his illness, (a man who drowned his sorrows in alcohol) and he  was grateful for the precious lessons his condition was teaching him.

Even though I wasn’t an ungrateful  or superficial person before my condition, ( I have been serving the precious Lord and Savior of my life since 1982) and y desire has been to become like Him , Never have I had a more grateful heart to God and the ability to focus on the beauty rather than the negative. This is not easy most of the time because of the distracting and often very uncomfortable throat, neck and mouth-jaw seizures, but I’m brought back to God’s reality  aspiring to have a thankful heart.

My condition has caused me to become more patient, more  enduring and accepting of other’s weakness . It has really upped the level of my ability to be empathetic and to really “feel” deeply how others are suffering.  Ministering for many years in New jersey area nursing homes, I was well-acquainted with how the elderly and handicapped suffer isolation, hopelessness and often fear. They do not know if they will live to the next holiday or their birthday., Many find themselves  becoming so disabled, they are bed-ridden. I used to minister to a precious Catholic woman who was so overweight and could only breath with her oxygen tank. She had indomitable courage and often would grab my hand, “Child, come here and let’s bring this to the Lord” she would smile.

I also remember watching one of my dear friends Theo Vrahnos, fall to Wilson’s Disease.  The handsome, long-haired, drum maestro and football star was bed-ridden for many months and lost the ability to speak clearly.  Along the way, I saw the health of many confidants and musician friends completely collapse and change their lives forever.

The usual response when we see friends and loved ones’ health fail is to became upset and baffled. We don’t know what to say. In my case, my violent twitching made many of my church family uncomfortable and most just don’t want to  make the 50 minute drive to visit me.  I have found that the body of Christ often lack the desire to step into ministering to “special needs”,  housebound or bedridden folks unless they are in their own church.  I totally relate to housebound people and I am desperate to overcome this  condition so I can minister one on one to the elderly and housebound in my community.

I am grateful for this gift of empathy Father God has allowed to hone in me a deep empathy and love for people. In fact, though I rarely have a friendly visit, I compensate by ministering to the precious, suffering Christian Lyme disease brothers and sisters. Since Lyme can be a death sentence, there is nothing more imperative than guiding them into a deeper and more authoritative  prayer life and deeper intimacy with their Heavenly Father, Jesus and Holy Spirit.

Nick Vujicic is one of my mentors and when ever began to feel sorry for myself, I watch his inspiring videos. You and I have nothing to  lose hope about when you see how this passionate and devoted  Christian man approaches life!

 

There are multitudes who are hopeless and many who suddenly take seriously ill and end up in the hospital. Some, like Alex  wake up from their anesthesia and find themselves with amputated limbs and must cope with facing a very different and very challenged existence.  Everyday , thousands receive a Cancer, MS or heart failure diagnosis.  Thousands of our precious servicemen and women commit suicide each day because of  the traumas of war and memories. We have the power to stop satanic attacks. We can come boldly to the heavenly throne room and ask Father to deploy his powerful warring and ministry angels to protect our children, our schools our neighborhoods and our communities. All of the medical and health  atrocities can be minimized by our fervent prayer. That anointing is a shield of protection and a hedge!

u . he only answer is for God’s people, the body of Christ to rise up in authority and plead the blood of Jesus Christ daily, over their family, loved ones, neighborhoods, co-workers and local community. Believe it 1 Satan is alive and well and everyone is under attack.  We (we, God covenant people) are the hedge that protects the enemy from having access and creating chaos, sickness and death.

I hope that after watching Alex and Nick’s stories, you come out with a sense of expectation to became all that God has called you to be.: a powerful prayer warrior with the ability to move mountains and change the landscape of our  health and lives. There are people who collapse and die and there are people who triumph and bring hope to others who re lost and suffering.  The substance which sustains and empowers  Champions is dependence on the supernatural strength of our mighty supernatural Jehovah God!  Nick and I know the secret of power,  spiritual influence and transformation. The power of God is revealed in us as the precious anointing. When we abide  intimately in him, we are endued with all might, power, authority and hope.

If you are incapacitated, suicidal or dying and you wish to have this living hope, please  declare in faith the Salvation prayer:

Heavenly Father, thank you for your son Jesus, the Christ.  Please forgive me for my sins and iniquities and wash me clean, Jesus in your precious blood.  I ask you to be my Lord and Savior today and I wish to serve you for the rest of my life. I am yours forever and I thank you Father for the forgiveness of sins, in Jesus name I pray, amen.

THE DOOR


Jesus at the door

       We buried my mother, Helga, this past Saturday at Ely Funeral home, Neptune, NJ.  She passed away at her abode, Concord   Rehabilitation center, June 25, 2019 from over four years of Dementia symptoms  It became harder and harder to see my mother so diminish each time my husband, Mark and I visited her. Tears would start to well in my eyes and I had stop and take a deep breath, aching Holy Spirit to strengthen me. My anointed Taylor guitar in hand and Father’s ministering angels surrounding  us in her room, I started to sing beloved healing hymns of faith.  As I leaned heavily on Jesus, I felt peace come over me and started to prophecy in song about mom’s deliverance, healing and  emancipation from the foreboding WWII and Nazi memories of Germany. For too long those ghosts smothered my mother and Mark and I were not about to let her go into eternity without Christ’s covering.

It was  a devastating burden to to see  vicious and merciless Dementia rob my mother of her mind and body. When I received the call from my mother’s social worker and I shared the news with my closest intercessor sisters , I immediately felt strengthened as they spoke courage, strength and peace over my three sisters and I.

     Mom’s burial was a very private affair with only my 2 sisters, my aunt, cousin, niece and a handful of long-time family friends.         

THE DOOR        

Our gathering here today is not only to pay last respects and bid farewell to my mother, Helga Stenzil Ferrer, but also to give credence and glory to Almighty God for the opportunity to enter the door of eternal life and salvation in Christ Yashuah.  I wish to share with you the channels, starting from my girlhood to my mother’s passing, and how it can affect your life today and your own eternal destiny.

I discovered as a teenager that I was a non‑conformist. Never one to embrace legalistic tradition and religion, my spiritual probing always brought me to the edges of radical faith. A deeply introspective and sensitive girl, I found it hard to connect with both of my parents. I kept a diary where I was able to explore my thoughts without condemnation and ponder what my life would be if my family lived peacefully and lovingly with each other.

The day after mom’s death, a dam of countless sorrowful and unresolved events spewed forth, in particular the senseless way both my father and mother died. I’m sure some of you may have felt the weight upon the loss of a cherished loved one. You found yourself suddenly thrown into the reality of burial and funeral details. Mark and I have had our share of funerals and the burying of beloved pets. The recent loss of our beloved Tabby, Bikini drew me directly into God’s perspective, a divine revelation about the brevity of life. From this revelation came my blog, Teach Us to Number Our Days, Moses Psalm 90. How accurately Moses portrayed the brevity of our lives as he cried to God for wisdom to live life intimately with God.

And so, as I prepare for my Mother’s farewell and grieve for what could have been, God impresses me to meditate on John 10:9.  Jesus said “I am the door. If anyone enters by me, he will be saved and go in and out and find pasture”.

We’ve all heard about stories of girls and women caught in terrible events and left vulnerable and exposed. My mother, my sisters and I, (as well as innumerable girls and young women worldwide) bear the scars of rejection, abandonment and abuse‑neglect.  I’ve encountered many women in crisis during my mentoring tenure at Love Inc ,Christian non-profit ministry and understand their feelings of fear, isolation and hopelessness. Without a safe haven, and stability, there is no way to survive and move forward.  There were no doors of safety open for these victims. Statistics rise regarding suicides, nervous breakdowns domestic abuse and/or murder by husband. I am one of the blessed ones who had the sense to use the shreds of sense I had left, (after so many traumatic events) to make the wisest choice I could ever make …to ask for and enter Jesus door!

If only my mother Helga had the joy and relief to enter Jesus’ door. Difficulties abounded for her to the very end, but Mark and I are humbled and grateful to have the privilege of ministering to her through intercession and remission of her sins. We trusted that Father God, in His mercy would redeem her soul. We cried, asking Father to deploy battalions off warring and ministry angels to shatter the demonic bondage that threatened to keep her from eternal life in heaven. We believe Father heard our earnest supplication, for our battle for our loved ones souls is not tangible and earthly, but a spiritual battle. Eph 6:12

Jesus said, “I am the way, the truth and the life” and there is no way we can ever enter heaven without his shed blood as our redemption. Mark and I know that we (and all persons) ,will give an account of our words and deeds during our lives. At the Bema (judgement) seat, Christ will be our judge. At the White Throne judgement, those who refused to accept and live for Christ will be judged and cast into hell for eternity.

Some may protest. “I’ve never killed anyone or robbed a bank”. But I tell you, none can enter Christ’s door, neither by the Catholic sacraments of baptism, confession or the Eucharist. You cannot enter His door through your good works, charitable donations and the sign of the cross, nor attending Bible studies or even reading the Bible.  Our very words and actions bear witness to whether we bear good fruits or evil fruits. Life and death is in the power of our tongues and our words set the atmosphere of our lives   and even affects those near and distant! Rest assured, we will give an account, 2 Cor 5:10

Galatians 5:22 clearly lists the beautiful and gracious fruits of the spirit, love joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self‑control. And of cruse, Galatians 5:19 describes the bad as sexual immorality, impurity, debauchery, idolatry, witchcraft,, hared, discord, jealousy,, fits of range, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions, envy and drunkenness. And let us not forget Jesus commandment of forgiveness in the Our Father prayer. The sin of unforgiveness opens the demonic door to strongholds of resentment and bitterness which has destroyed many marriages and families. Be of good cheer, for the nitty‑gritty sins and strongholds of our souls and family bloodlines have already been cleansed when we appropriate Christ’s, blood to our lives and families. Christ is the all‑sufficient sacrifice for our lives, health and wellness.

Jesus Christ, Yashuah HaMashiach, is the only way the truth and the life. He is also the resurrections, the bread and the door. If curses, bad fortune and sorrow has been a part of your life, bring them to the cross and ask Christ into your life to cleanse and redeem you from your past and your families’ tainted bloodlines. That door to  supernatural healing and peace is available right now today, if you ask Him!

FELLING the GIANT, Pt 2


 

 

 

 

In my Felling the Giant post (Pt 1), I gave instruction, advice and suggestions for healing and support of the  physical man. When I first was diagnosed with Lynne in 1992, it was a frightening death sentence because I’d heard that people became disabled and even died.  Disability was not an option for me because God had already ordained me to participate and fulfill leadership roles in many social-outreach  capacities.  Seeing so many manifestations of His miraculous provision and healing, I refuse to believe the lies and doctors reports that I would be one of the Lyme Statistics, disabled and non-productive.

On Saturday, our usual Sabbath of rest, I participate on our intercessors conference call, but today, I felt a strong impression to research the topic of transferring of spirits .During our conference line meetings, some of the fellow prayer warriors shared their frustrations of family and relatives  emotional state very strongly influencing the atmosphere . I sought a pastors teaching on YouTube and found one from Omega Man radio. Pastor Ivory Hopkins was teaching about the transference of spirits. He kept reiterating that Life and death is in the power of the tongue. Prov. 18:21

Now, most of us are all too familiar with this verse and have declared it many times, but today, I believe I received a revelation of how all-encompassing this verse is to our perspective of victorious living.  A mature child of God,  walking fully in his glorious identity will testify of the relevancy of his tongue fruits influence both in the physical realm, but especially in the spiritual.

I used the be the Murphy’s Law girl,  “that anything that can go wrong will go wrong..” That it was . All kinds of crazy and difficult things happened to me til after I  accepted Christ in 1983. Then, I became a new creation! 2 Cor 5:17. So, I no longer declared, nor did I act as I did, a reprobate who was a walking curse.. Now, I did have to appropriate that new identity in Christ because even though my sins were forgiven and cleansed through Christ’s sacrificial blood, our nemesis  Satan, (the accuser), still could dictate to my life that I was still a sinner and unclean. Remember! We are now the righteousness of Christ.  2 Cor.  5:21

If we are a new creation, than we must stop speaking death and lack over our lives. I am sick. I am getting worse. The doctor’s report says i have stage 4 Cancer.  I Can’t do this. I’m a failure. These declarations and many others we often say even without realizing their power are contrary to what God says we are and can do.

Life and death is in the power of the tongue.  Here are the definitions of power according to the dictionary.

  1.  the ability to do something or act in a particular way, especially as a faculty or quality.

    2. the capacity or ability to direct or influence the behavior of others or the course of events. 

  1. supply (a device) with mechanical or electrical energy.
    2. move or travel with great speed or force.

So we see power is a word of force and great action!

Pastor Ivory shared a powerful sermon on the spies who were sent out to spy the land and only two,  Joshua and Caleb, ( who in fact had different spirits)  and had a declaration that was pleasing to God.

  “And Caleb stilled the people before Moses, and said, Let us go up at once, and possess it; for we are well able to overcome it.” Num 13:30 

Whose report do we believe and declare….God’s or the doctors.? Or our parents, classmates, spouses, bosses’ co-workers, neighbors.? It is time we walk as the Kings and Priests our Heavenly Father has called us and (adopted  us) into. We are called out of darkness into His marvelous light. That is something we should be excited about and share with others through our testimony!

Satan has approached, (and continues to do so) the altars of the Holy courtroom a myriad of times with the other sons of God to  accuse, lie and challenge God about our reputation.. Many of us have no idea what happens in the spiritual realm.  The real battle is in the spiritual realm and can only be fought with spiritual armament.  My blog, Prayer, The Double-Edged Sword, is a powerful study on the superiority and power of prayer infused with God’s living word! I beat Lyme Disease, Carbon Monoxide Poisoning as well as clinical depression and  Bulemia. The past 12 years I am battling a war against this neurological disorder, Dystonia and I will win!

We, (my fellow brethren on the Facebook Christian Lyme Disease groups and the Facebook Dystonia groups) often  share tour frustrations and deep grief about tour debilitating symptoms, the medications  (that often don’t offer relief)  that have to be taken, and the isolation and strained family relationships we endure. I give Glory to Father God that he has been my Jehovah Jireh (Provider) who sees my need for family, friendship and fellowship and has blessed me with a handful of precious prayer warriors who have filled that need for prayer, support and understanding.  God is also my Jehovah Raphha, (my healer) and as He as supplied me with the spiritual endurance, faith and hope (expectation of my healing), even though expectancy is one of my weaker issues.  If I relentlessly pursue His face and presence with confident declaration of His word, I will also beat this staggering giant!

How do I fell this giant, Dystonia?  And how do you  fell your Lyme, Cancer, Autism,  Diabetes, COPD, etc? Many of you opt for Disability or every treatment the doctor orders. That is your option.  Isn’t God good to allow us free choice to make our own destiny? But for me and my house we will serve the Lord and His word says :

 I shall not die, but live, and declare the works of the Lord. Psalm 118:17

For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God  prepared in advance for us to do. Eph.  2:10 NLT

Of course God can use the bed-ridden and the wheelchair-bound. Look how He has gloriously used Joni Earekson Tada! But I prefer to be on my feet and energetic and I will beat this Dystonia and fulfill  the greatest things Father has ordained for me which are written in my book of Life. It really is up to me.  I have my daily declarations which I declare out loud, particularly,

And I overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of my testimony; and I loved no my lives unto the death.   Rev. 12:11

AS a closing note, I wish to remind you that satan is so cunning, having had eons to study us.  He uses every trick in the book and will use every option, open door, deeply-obscured generational iniquity from our distant  ancestors  or toe-hold to   diminish  our kingdom service, spiritual and physical well-being. I was surprised to hear of Pastor Ivory sharing the story of a cheating  husband. Because of his  adultery, satan was able to gain access and attack the wife. The Bible says that the two become one flesh, so though unfair, Satan will and does attacks us through the disobedience or sin of our spouse, children or dead relatives, (ungodly soul-ties).

There are unseen aspects and barriers to our healing which we will have to diligently seek and ask Holy Spirit to lead us to a anointed deliverance counselor.  I believe many stubborn cases of non healing is due to ancestral generational curses and/or witchcraft attacks. Pastor derrik Prince gave an excellent teaches of barriers to our healing. It would behoove us to listen, learn, pray and apply powerful principles to our daily walking (and soaring) with Christ!

 

 

 

Prayer: Heavenly Father, Thank you for Your precious Son, Yashuah Jesus, who already paid the penalty  for our healing and sins on the cross. Tetelestai, He said it is finished! We ask Holy Spirit that you lead us into all revelation,  understanding  and wisdom of  things unseen, so we can walk in freedom and victory. We thank you for your deliverance, 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.

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.

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.

Pastor John Eckert’s powerful declaration video speaks all about God’s miraculous Exousia and Dunamis power!! This video will change your life.

If you are to survive the ever-brutal and worsening darkness, you need to diligently apply spiritual warfare disciplines. Nothing can separate us and we overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony. Remember, you have all authority and satan and his demons are under your feet! \

God bless you, courageous warrior of teh most high God, Jehovah Sabaoth!!v

NEAR to the BROKEN-HEARTED


stc-l-kgmonarch-0802-03

The weight was becoming so crushing that Barbara could barely  breath

I got off of my tread mill, at the telephones’ ringing and heard my precious sister Barbara’s voice, weak with grief.  She was grieving for her son, Adam and it was a very difficult time for her. I was grateful to be  available for her and listened as she poured out her heart to me. Feelings of protectiveness came over me like a mother bear seeing her cub being threatened.  I knew the enmey was trying to drag her backwards into the depths of bondage.  I waited for Holy Spirit to download instruction on how to minister to her.

I felt a very heavy burden of anguish and then I asked her to rest and be still because I was going to release a song over her. The inspiration of lyrics came to me the past Saturday because of a burden for my three younger sisters who were are battling weights from their past. As I was checking my emails, I saw a dear prophetic brother who wrote that Holy Spirit had told him I was going to write another song. I grabbed my pen and within 5 minutes I wrote  “Enter My Rest” Holy Spirit reminded me  of  Hebrews 4:11Let us therefore strive to enter into His rest.

I could feel a spiritual tug of war going on with Barbra, but I told her I felt to sing Shalom over her. the new song,  Enter my Rest and Beautiful Daughter. Holy Spirit was showing me that Abba wanted her to  let go of all the weights..and rest in him. Then He showed me a performance anxiety spirit was pulling her. So we prayed together against the spirit.    I saw that we indeed were in a tug of war. Yashuah Jesus, Barbara and I were on one side of the  rope and the  demonic spirits at the other end. We continued to pray and we took authority over the spirits. .

As we were waging warfare,  standing firm, we felt the noose was loosening. Barbara prayed and then started singing Hallelujah, we sing hallelujah. I joined in and we were singeing prophetically.

hallelujah. We sing hallelujah,  We sing hallelujah to our King

You release us to the skies, cause we are butterflies.

We are soaring into glory.. He releases us into the skies

We soar on weightless wings and look into our Father eyes,

All of a sudden, Barbara laughed and she was light with exhilaration. Father helped her to break through. It was so delightful, she suddenly burst out that she saw a vision of millions of Monarch butterflies being released. WOW! was all I could say!

Truly, Barbara’s received a glorious breakthrough and fresh  anointing of her ability to see visions. We were enthralled at the fresh unction of confidence and strength Father had given her and we marveled at how Father is so near His children when they are broken-hearted.

During my prayer over Barbara, I also  reminded her  that Yashuah had already set a banquet table for us to dine on His exquisite delicacies of mercy and grace, among many others.  Though He invites us and often we come in shabby clothes and   broken as paupers, he garbs us in  pure white wedding gowns, spotless in His blood.  Sister Barbara and all my precious brothers and sisters, let us fall back into His hammock of love after you have confessed your sins and weaknesses! Release and rest!

“Enter My Rest” Holy Spirit reminds us in  Hebrews 4:11.  Let us therefore strive to enter into His rest. For some of us, we may need to ask God’s help to discipline ourselves from the stringent bondage of work and striving. God is faithful..He hears our cries and will surely help!
