The Lord keeps giving me the word “WISDOM" and he’s bringing me to Proverbs Chapter 6. I’ve been feeling in my spirit a pull to understand how to endure a life of persecution for this is where I feel we are going as a Church.
When I asked Father what 2021 would bring he told me that his children would be given faces like flint. I’m not sure what exactly flint is, but I think it’s a hard rock that produces a spark when struck by iron or steel. Again, it doesn’t surprise me because we are a divided nation with two legs of iron. I also believe that flint was used to make weapons and tools, like spearheads and swords.
Holy Spirit is urging me to exhort the Church on how to move forward to endure the plight. The overall plan has not changed! He ignites his Church to bring forth light.
The flint in us will strike against the iron in others to create a spark which will bring forth light. And the Sword of the Spirit, which is the Inspired Word of God, will protrude from our mouths to fight this evil. It is sharper than a double edged sword! It cuts away soul from Spirit and flesh.
But the questions I have are these:
“How do we do this without creating offense?” and “How do you we evangelize without stirring up strife?” Is it even possible?
Well, it’s no surprise as to why Holy Spirit has led me to Proverbs 6. This is where Wisdom teaches on the daily lessons of life. So, this is what I’ve learned on how I am to conduct myself during the time of global division and strife.
Lesson #1 - Credit and loans are NOT the way to go! They can be a sign of wealth, but can easily become a fraudulent counterfeit! Be careful of entering into relationship with any form of bondage because Satan will be offering many opportunities. And if you have already entered into an agreement with a friend or a stranger that you know you should have not, then swallow your pride and beg to have your name erased before you get caught up like a bird and become entrapped.
What I mean is this - do not get so over your head that you will be tied to debt! Do not put yourself in a position that you can’t live without relying on the government.
During this time of great deception, the Master of Intrigue will give you many chances to bind with him. Remember that no human has the power to forgive like Jesus, and that no man should have two masters from which to choose. Stand strong on the truth - Servants of Yahweh need not be servants of men.
Lesson #2 - It is time to go to work! Stop being a spiritual lazybones! The alarm has gone off! Stop trying to turn it off! Get up and do the work that has been assigned to you. The harvest is ripe and it must be picked. You will either be a worker of iniquity or you will be a worker for Me! Holy Spirit has granted each of us different spiritual gifts. Stop standing around comparing your gifts, and get to work. The Lord has placed his plan and his purpose in each of our hearts, so look inside and find out what he is telling you to do. Stop listening to others and feeling condemned. There is no time to waste in this dying world that we’re living in. It is only going to get worse. Soon the government will be changing the Bible too. So know the Word of God before it gets taken from you!
And let’s talk about poverty. Whoever works his land will have plenty of bread but he who follows worthless pursuits lacks common sense. If you turn off the alarm in hopes to get little extra sleep, or you fold your hands and say “I give up”, then evil cravings will come, and natural desires will rise up.
So stay alert, get up, pick up your mat, and go and do the work the Lord has called you to.
Lesson #3 - Do not engage liars! They pervert justice and they try to trip you up through deceptive lies. They suppress the truth like a snake twisting lies between two eyes. They bring death and destruction to every perspective, and they function in opposition to the Spirit of Truth. They like to stir up trouble through haughty eyes, lying tongues and hands that kill the innocent. Their hard hearts plot and their feet quickly move to do get away from God. They sow discord in the family unit, and they act as a false witness to the Lord. Stay away from these types of people! Do not try to befriend them. Do not engage them!
Lesson #4 - Obey My Authority and Maintain Your Fear of the Lord - the Spirit of God will lead you into ALL Truth! Always keep the Word of the Lord in your hearts and tie them around your neck. When you walk, their counsel will lead you. When you sleep, they will protect you. When you wake up, they will advise you. For their command is a lamp and their instruction a light; their corrective discipline is the way of life. Without the leading of the Holy Spirit who is gifted with eternal wisdom, there is no way to know the difference between what is right and what is wrong.
Lesson #5 - Lust will lead you back to the mortal dust. Cravings of the flash are no different than our natural thoughts and emotions. Without Holy Spirit we are abandoned to carry out worldly intent. The natural man, on his own, without God, is subject to sin. Worldly desires are driven by sexual immorality, impurity, idolatry, sorcery, hostility, quarreling, jealousy, anger, selfishness, envy, bitterness, division, and drunkenness. So the more we can align our hearts and our minds to the Spirit of God, the less likely we are to resemble this!
Lesson #6 - God is a jealous God, much like that of a jealous husband! He does not take it kindly when his bride flaunts herself in front of other men. Any king or kingdom who commits spiritual adultery and finds herself in bed with other gods, will no longer be protected under her husband’s grace. The Lord will be bringing his wrath down!
During 2020 the Lord said “You have shed innocent blood covering your land, from end to end!” “You have taken me out of government and worship other gods!” “America had a choice between “Return to Me” or “Choose your Pride" - and look at what you have done! You said yes to abortion and no to religious freedom. You looked at a prideful president and hated him more than you feared ME! You hung in the balance, and waited, and then you decided a Baal society was what you would want. You chose not to listen to the warnings that I sent through the prophets! You people of the proud - you don’t like to be told what to do! In fact, you want to believe you are the knower of everything!"
Christians beware! Persecution is coming to you! But know this, they hate you only because they first hated Me! So this morning, as I sit at the feet of Jesus, he says, “Listen to Wisdom. She will not lead you wrong.” This is what I heard her say, "Use good judgment. Show some understanding, and have keen discernment.”
And then I heard the voice of Jesus and this is what he said to me.
“I love all who love me, those who search will surely find me.
The Lord formed me from the beginning before he created anything else
I was appointed I ages past, before the earth began.
I was born before the oceans were created
before the springs bubbled forth their waters;
before the mountains were formed before the hills,
I was born before he had made the earth and the fields,
and the first handfuls of soil.
I was there when he established the heavens
when he drew the horizon on the oceans;
I was there when he set the clouds above
when he establish springs deep in the earth;
I was there when he set the limits of the seas
so they would not spread beyond their boundaries;
and when he marked off the earths foundations
I was the architect at his side -
I was his constant delight, rejoicing always in his presence
and how happy I was with the world he created
how I rejoiced with the human family.
And so my children, listen to me
For all who follow my ways are joyful.
Listen to my instruction and be wise.
Don’t ignore it!
Joyful are those who listen to me watching,
for me daily at my gates waiting for me outside my home
for whoever finds me finds life and receives favor from the Lord
but those who miss me injure themselves
and all who hate me love death.
Written January 4th - The ALARM was sent but many did not want to hear it!
Tomorrow is January 5th.
There is still time to turn back.
There is still time to repent.
Last night I had a dream about the State of Texas but the Lord did not tell me what it meant. And just before going to sleep I felt an oppressive spirit covering my head, like a veiling of sorts. And when this feeling came over me, it felt like an impending tidal wave or tsunami was getting ready to hit.
So when the Lord told me to watch Texas, I was not sure what he meant. And then he pressed in me another state, but I could not make it out. I only knew it had something to do with a location that I have been. So it must have been New York, Nevada or Florida.
Texas does not sit upon an ocean, so how the heck could a tidal wave come upon them?
It’s now the 11th hour on January 4th and the Lord just woke me from my sleep. Typically he wakes me at 2 or 3 am so I find it interesting that it’s only 11:25 pm. There must be a reason why getting the word out on January 5th is so important.
Most people will not like what I’m about to say, but I speak what the Lord puts inside my mouth.
I’m not going to try to justify with my own thoughts, because I will only mess this up. So here it is...
The thing coming out of Texas is Ted Cruz. He represents the red wave that had been trying to dismantle the blue. Many say if that were true then God would make it happen, but the Lord says humans have always had the free will to choose. The people who choose to sit back and say that politics are not important, do not represent God’s motives or his intentions.
You see, world powers rise up through kings and kingdoms, and we have witnessed many who are good and who are evil. Many Americans today would say King Manasseh of Judah was good because he allowed for the worshipping of many gods. He opened himself and his land to the deep penetration of divination. He even sacrificed his own baby son.
During the reign of Manasseh scripture says the land of Judah was covered from end to end with innocent blood. Offering unborn children and child sacrifices had to the most unholy of practices resulting from deep seated idolatry. Even king Manasseh offered his son to the pagan god.
But I tell you, America is no different. America has traditionally based their dependence on Me, “One nation under God” and “In God we trust.”
It is true America has made mistakes along the way, no person, king or servant, is perfect, but she has always had a desire, to have a clean heart, and to do what is right - at least in the name of the Judeo-Christian God.
Since righteousness can only be found in Me, her focus has always had to be on Me alone. But in the days, there’s been a twisting of faith, America is choosing to serve other holy ones. Look who she allowed to sit at her seat, a blasphemous minister who sent strange fire up to me. Do you think this okay? Do you think I’m going to just stand by and watch? No! I will be bringing my wrath down!
America no longer honors me as her Most High God, she has strayed and set herself up Asher poles on her hills and she continues to construct her temples to Baal. America has become lukewarm and I am about to spit her out of My mouth, and all because she continues to tolerate the Jezebel spirit and has offered herself to multiple gods.
Much has weighed in the balance during this time of global pandemic. America has entertained the world through her tolerance of disgraceful acts. She has become a mocking place and all the gods laugh in her face. Yet, they continue to enter in, giving birth to even more hideous sin! Instead of slamming the door, the Americans continue to want more!
Have you seen your children?
Have you seen the confusion?
Have you seen the lack of clarity?
Look at the rebellion!
You’re raising up hellians!
Look at the explosion of idol worship!
You have allowed ministers and teachers to twist My words!
Do you think I care about any other thing? Nothing is good if it is not of Me! All you care about is your so called democracy! But I tell you, it will fail you if she is not rooted in My tree! Your fear and your focus has shifted off of Me. Do you not see the disparity?
There is a cockroach infestation in your government! Human ambition has become Lot!
You sit with sinners and have sex with men. You offer your women and children to them! America has become like Sodom and Gomorrah! What do you think will happen?
You have taken sin to the extreme! You have no desire to remain in me! You cover my land with innocent blood, then you laugh it off and continue on! There is no remorse in your bones! And the corruption is deeper than you think! It’s a gigantic garbage heap!
Money and greed fill the heart of America, and dominion and power her fill her head! Flesh cravings without boundaries has become the desired scent of the walking dead. Your Democracy was founded on the concept of free and fair elections, and you determine a President, Senate and House of Representative by the popular vote - the belief that represents majority of the Americans.
You people of the proud believe that you can take Me out of government, and you think that I will still be for you! Oh how deceived you are!
You think your sovereignty matters more than being servant to Me. You think I’m going to be for a people who vote against Me? You think with so much warning, that I will ignore your blasphemy? You must be crazy!
Do you not remember the consequences of eating from the Tree of Knowledge? You were tempted by Satan and you gave into your flesh. That was not him! That was your decision! You humans! Why is pride and knowledge so damn important to you?
Thoughts based in humanity void of the fear of the Lord only lead to your destruction! Where has your faith gone? How has this happened?
You have gone to extremes! Have you not heard my warnings?
Many ministers have said “it will be what it will be” - I tell you, this is a cowardly act of giving creed to rebellion and idolatry. I gave the opportunity for the Church to stand up and do what is right!
I woke up and sent forth prophets to speak from My Spirit yet you would not listen! Instead you mock them!
Your children are dying. Can’t you hear them crying? They have been lulled to sleep, and sin blindly- not even realizing what they done because you have forgotten Me. Without My reflection, you have no true identity. You will wander and be lost in the wilderness, spiritually empty - spiritually broken - because you have chosen to step out of My presence.
I am a good God. I am a faithful God. I am a loving God. But know this -
I have a kingdom of Righteousness, and nothing will diminish its purity!
The day of judgement is coming soon. Every choice. Every decision will be judged. Don’t you know that America is not about Trump or Biden - it’s about One Nation Under Me - the Most High God!, the Righteous One and the Holiest of Spirits!
Which Candidates best represent my laws and my commandments? I tell you this- It’s not about health or education! It’s not about Medicare, immigration or foreign policy, and it’s definitely not about the color of skin! Your gender policies are a disgrace to me! Do you think I want to allow them in?
There are two things at stake in this election and they will determine the judgement of America!
1. Will you continue to worship false gods? Will you continue to send up strange smoke? Will you continue to open your spiritual borders to unclean spirits? Will you continue to disgrace Me?
2. Will you shed more Innocent blood of unborn children? Sill I continue to hear innocent blood crying out to me? Will you take responsibility and do what is right? Will you stop engaging in sexual practices that are an abomination to Me?
This is the wave that is coming! Everything weighs on your Senate.
You will side with Texas or you will side with New York. The choice that is made today will determine the direction that I must take. But know this - I always leave a remnant!
***Since writing this I realized I had just been in Georgia on vacation. January 5th was the day of the Georgia Senate election. Much was tied to this election. Reverend Raphael Warnock won the election. Warnock is a pro-choice senior pastor. He represents everything the Lord is against. A biblical teacher and pastor who advocates and promotes the murder of unborn children as being a human right. During this same time, a MO congressman (congress person - to be politically correct) who received a Master's Degree in Theology sent up a prayer to the Monotheistic God, Brahma and the God of many different faiths. He then ended the prayer "Amen and Awomen." It's no wonder, Lord, that you are bringing your wrath down. I guess we have our answer to your questions.
Yes, the Democratic American government does plan to increase their adultery with false gods. They choose secular humanism over God-centeredness. I have a feeling we are going to see more of this, and there will be laws passed that make it unlawful to follow sound biblical truths.
And we may see the continuation of abortion. Innocent blood will continue to cry out to you.
Lord, forgive us! Help your remnant to stay strong in your word and keep you first and center in our lives.
From the eyes of Jan,
A Maid of Honor,
A head bridesmaid for the Church.
The time is alive with celebration.
There are many pre-marriage events to plan.
Today we will go window shopping,
and slip inside to see
what wedding dress is available
in your style, size and color.
Wait...WHITE is the color it must be.
It is the color your groom will be looking for.
Purified by his crimson blood
that makes your sin whiter than snow.
Whiter than the wool upon his head
that transcends even the Bethlehem star.
Oh precious bride to be,
the Lord is looking forward
to his wedding day.
All he does is wait patiently,
longing to embrace his future wife
who will be wrapped in full faith,
wearing her perfectly made wedding dress.
Can you imagine what his eyes will see,
and how his heart will feel,
when you enter the room
wearing your beautiful wedding gown?
His eyes will certainly be set ablaze
by your purity.
A virgin bride for all the world to see.
You will gracefully move
down the aisle like a gazelle,
perfectly aligned from head to toe.
The Body of Christ will be majestic.
Breathtaking, and burning to worship
the One True God.
No eye will be able to turn away
when they see the Bride of Christ.
Every eye will fixate
on how much she reflects
God’s abundant mercy and grace.
Oh Beautiful bride to be,
Do not try to buy a 2nd hand dress.
Do not try to save money.
When we walk in to purchase
your wedding dress,
remember the cost
that Jesus paid for you.
Do not scrape. Do not skim.
Do not invest the least
into this glorious event.
You were redeemed
by God himself,
who came to earth,
fully God and fully human,
to save you
from experiencing an eternal death!
He put his Seed inside of you,
and vowed to send His Spirit
to comfort and guide you.
He never forsake you!
He never left you!
He came. He gave.
He impregnated and anointed.
He set you apart for himself!
Remember the curse we are under!
The seed of Adam is death,
but the second Adam,
Our God made flesh,
reversed the curse
and gives everlasting life.
Oh, Wife to be,
how he redeemed you
with a precious price.
Our Lord and Savior
would never accept anything less
than a heart that’s been purified
by his blood.
So as you consider your dress,
think on Philippians 4 verse 8.
“Whatever is true, whatever is honorable,
is just, whatever is pure,
whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable,
if there is any excellence,
if there is anything worthy of praise,
think about these things.”
Verily I tell you,
there is nothing
more true and honorable,
pure and lovely,
commendable and excellent,
and worthy of all praise,
Hear this -
You must make certain
that you are ready
when the Day of the Lord comes.
Your wick must be trimmed,
and oil must be in your lamp.
You must present yourself
as flawless without wrinkle;
as spotless without blemish.
Your inner spirit must be adorned
with abundant spiritual fruit;
these are the precious jewels
that shine the truth of Christ
into a dark world.
The Lord says,
“You will know me by my fruit,
and I will know you
by what comes out of your heart.”
For it is the meek
who shall inherit the earth,
because they represent
a true and tender and thankful heart.
PREPARE! I say... Prepare!
The Day of the Lord is near!
Let us look for your wedding dress,
one has been specially designed for you.
Prepare! I say...prepare!
Your wedding day is near.
Cloth yourself in abundant faith.
I can hear the BRIDEGROOM IS GETTING READY too.
Day One is just an extension of time under the sun;
The ticking clock of tick tock sounds more like that of crushing snow.
Why? I don’t know.
I see feet bound by chains.
I see snow up to their knees.
I see a Boulder sitting at the shoulder of an opening.
I see grey skies, dampness and rain.
I hear silence...whispering...then screams.
I see people running for their lives,
trying to escape a northern invasion
during the changing of seasons.
It’s cold outside. It's freezing.
People are frightened.
Barefeet by warm stoves have become frozen like icicles.
They are baked clay binded by iron chains.
I hear the clip clop of horses hooves.
A crunching effect - between the earth and the snow.
I can’t see faces - they hide behind fur.
Who they are? I don't know.
The masses have gone
and I can only see and hear just one,
he is circling, around and around,
like a vulture,
I can’t tell what he is looking for.
He seems agitated. Frustrated.
With all the devastation,
he is still not content.
He is searching for something
that he came for.
I get the feeling of Herod,
when he sent an army to kill baby Jesus,
but he had already been sent to Egypt.
Yet, so many children died
at the evil command of a worldly king,
and all out jealousy.
With a flesh desire to stay in power,
Herod sent forth the word
to find the messiah, and kill him.
Oh, How the weather has changed.
Barefoot with frozen feet
will prevent free movement,
but the northern army
is prepared and ready.
Tick tock Clippity clop
the weather is changing.
Watch out for the north -
they are being manipulated.
Masses are being trained
to descend upon Jerusalem.
God help us to see.
Give us the right words to say,
in your perfect timing.
Save your people from mass destruction.
Put us in place to discern your voice
and cut all the others noises out.
May we hear with keen intensity,
and may we risk being seen as fools
to those who want to mock your gifts.
Protect us as we serve you obediently.
There will be so many attacks on prophets because they missed it.
I may have, but I don’t think so. The first poem the Lord gave me for 2020 is below.
Please look, listen and test it back to scripture and Spirit.
Discernment tied to an honest, authentic relationship with Jesus
is all that is needed to risk obedience and do what God has asked.
The deeper I grow in relationship with Jesus,
the more I shake the fear of man and what he thinks.
I would never risk my reputation or professional standing
unless I was cemented in my faith to Jesus by the power of Holy Spirit.
I am not perfect.
I am just a woman who has been nudged by Holy Spirit
to put out the words that I hear and the visions that I see.
Nothing more. Nothing less.
I wish I could send a different message,
but I only send forth what the Lord gives me.
2020 was one of intense warning and dividing.
2021 will be one of Christian persecution,
in America and across the globe.
The Church will transform back into God’s original design,
moving from one man at the pulpit to the five fold Ministry -
from a clenched fist of power and control
to an open hand of serving God and brethren.
We will see martyrdom and faith like Stephen
sending the message of Jesus out into the land.
Christians will be given faces like flint -
and like iron sharpens iron
they will send forth sparks to light up the globe.
We will see ministries growing and going,
not for self but for the Kingdom of God.
The Body of Christ aligned to the True Head,
the Church will move in Holy Spirit power and wisdom.
We will see ACTS again, in people and places
where faith is based on trusting God over man.
2020 - THE YEAR OF CLARITY
Written January 1, 2020
What will your New Year bring?
Will it be full of laborious goals,
forced by your own hand?
Will it be full of selfish ambition,
Will you move forward,
With foolish motives behind your plan?
Perhaps your arrogance will defy you,
And you will try to stand on sand?
Do not to try to elevate yourself,
By laying bricks to reach the sun.
Your work will be done in vain,
I will confuse and scatter everyone.
You usurpers of the throne,
Illegitimate children gone astray!
It’s time to Repent,
And turn from your evil ways!
In this New Year of 2020,
This "year of clarity",
Will you seek to do My will?
Or continue to be a worker of iniquity?
Narcissism has filled My land,
It’s become the way of the dead.
My trumpets sound to wake them,
but they just turn their heads.
I send My Words to warn them,
But they do not want to hear!
Unrighteousness defiles them,
These generations have no fear.
Do you not know, that unless I build your house, your work will be for nothing!
You will run in circles, running to and fro,
and exhausted you will be.
Your labor will be wasted,
your produce will rot,
And I will cut you from My tree.
So Wake Up!
Open your eyes,
And set them on Me!
Do you not know that I have set you free?
Now throw off the yoke
That is heavy laden and in despair,
It’s weight is too heavy
For My people to bear.
My yoke is easy,
It offers new light to see.
The plans I have for you,
The purpose I have for thee.
You must remember,
in this season of great strife,
It’s not by force or power,
It’s My Spirit that brings forth life.
Yes, the year of 2020
It will bring clarity to some.
Those who seek My Kingdom,
Will see that My harvest has already begun.
What a year it has been.
2020 - This has been a year like no other.
The time has been pre-assigned for the Bride,
Like a ring on the finger for which she has suffered.
Severed – Almost Beheaded
The Bride of Christ has heard the alarm and responded.
The Body of Christ is resurrected.
The wedding dress has been put on.
Patiently Waiting. The oil is burning.
What a year it will be.
2021 – The Year of Flint.
The Bride will endure hardship and great suffering.
Resolute and Unyielding.
She will stand firm, faithfully focused and free.
With eyes like Stephen,
firmly set on Jesus
Persecution will be an opportunity
To send forth the message of Good News.
The fist of one man at the pulpit will unfold,
and become the five-fold ministry hand as was planned.
We will hear the snapping of sharp edges together
as faces like flint strike against each other,
to create sparks for the Chief Cornerstone.
Do you hear my voice, coming on the wind?
Have you told my children to pay attention?
Do you have any idea what I am about to do?
Do you doubt that I can uproot, any kingdom that I choose?
Do you believe in my sovereignty?
Do you think my message had changed?
Do you think I’ve stopped calling my bride to return to me?
Do you not hear me still calling, “Faith, do you hear me?”
Do you believe I’m pivoting
to bring about your wealth and prosperity,
when all along,
I’ve been sounding the alarm
for you to repent and come home?
Do you think the demons have retreated
just because they have been identified?
Do you believe their infiltration
has subsided just because they are in hiding,
quietly plotting and planning
for the coming desolation to mankind?
Do not be stupid!
The persecution has just begun.
Get ready to see my stem standing up.
The spirit of Stephen is on the rise!
Do you not hear my voice coming on the wind?
Can you not see my army covering the land?
Do you not know that I am sovereign,
and I can send a lying spirit into anyone I want?
Who are you to stand on a castle of sand
claiming victory across the land?
You have turned bad into good,
and twisted my word to say what you want.
You pretend to know me,
but you certainly do not.
Remember what I did in 2020.
I shifted, lifted, straightened and sifted.
I pressed, pruned, tore and rejected.
I woke, roared, warned and exposed
the filth and corruption across the entire globe.
I sent light into the night and exposed
thousands upon thousands of cockroaches.
And when I tried to catch them,
they slithered and slid out of my hands
because there was no stickiness in their bones.
As you enter 2021, know this -
If the church speaks peace and prosperity
to the gods of Babylon
then know that I have put
a lying spirit inside their mouths.
My message has not changed,
even if you don’t feel my fist coming down.
Being spiritually numb
does not change the arm of the Lord.
Ahab too was alive and well,
while Jezebel casted her spells
on humans who worshipped Baal.
They were my people -
who had become
spiritually deaf and dumb and blinded
like the walking dead!
Despite how many times my prophet went to Ahab,
the evil king who ruled at the time,
he would not listen to what Elijah said.
Again and again, Ahab was bent on evil,
because he got in bed with that seducing spirit,
that prophetess Jezebel.
He refused to listen to Elijah’s warnings
and he sincerely believed
that Elijah just did not like him.
Today we see, a twisted version
of the same thing -
in so many ways
coming from all four directions!
The people of every nation and every tongue
have bowed down to the gods of Babylon.
Principalities have taken possession
of people’s passions for the flesh.
Power and Dominion has seized control,
and people have been indoctrinated
not question the standing system.
And all the while you tolerate the Jezebel spirit
and have become spiritually lukewarm.
You prefer to live in a dream filled with peace and prosperity
rather than knowing, exposing or living by the truth.
The Lord says,
Do you think I have changed my mind?
Nothing has changed!
Warnings come and warnings go
yet you continue to stay on the merry-go-round.
You are like the drunkards like Ephraim,
and have laid out all kinds of garments,
but have not rendered your hearts.
I have pulled weeds, at the root,
and have disclosed unbiblical fruit.
I have divided the sheep from the goats,
and I replaced many wine skins.
Confusion and clarity was assigned for this season
of rest and repentance,
some ran away and some received it.
2021 will be the Year of Flint!
Great trials and tribulations are coming to Christians,
not just in America but across the globe.
My remnant will continue to be wrung out,
for one drop of My blood covers a multitude of sin.
2021 will feel like
time is standing still...
Authentic Faith will settle in
as acts of adultery continue on.
It will look like
not much is going on -
but God is raising His children,
and strengthening His Bride.
In the home
of the heart of the believer,
the Spirit is teaching
and loving His Bride
with unwavering faith.
His tender roots
will be watered with love,
and thick oaks will come from them.
will rise from the earth
as dry bones are given new life.
Hands and feet will begin to twitch
as the Head and the Body of Christ
begin to line up;
The Holy Spirit regulates
and coordinates the Body's activities,
and spiritual muscles begin to flex.
Ministry movements will explode
as the Body of Christ begins to move.
“One Man Talent Show”
will be replaced
by the Spirit of Truth
through the Five Fold Ministry.
With Jesus as the Chief Cornerstone,
the Temple of God is being rebuilt.
Apostles, prophets, evangelists,
pastors and teachers
are re-building the walls
"to prepare God’s people for works of service,
so that the body of Christ may be built up
until we all reach unity in the faith
and in the knowledge of the Son of God
and become mature,
attaining to the whole measure
of the fullness of Christ."
will become decentralized,
as true discipleship continues on.
The Bible contains everything
the church needs to know
to grow, thrive and fulfill
the mission assigned to us.
Holy Spirit reveals every Word
as we draw in closer to Him.
The glory of God is coming soon
as Holy Spirit rebuilds His temple.
Watch and see
what God can do
with men and women
who have obedient hearts.
Life is found in the tongue,
and nothing will be able
to tear His Word down.
The Sword of the Spirit needs to extend
from the mouth of
every professing Christian;
the Word of God must be read,
heard and spoken.
Testimonies of Christ
will be heard
through every race, nation and tongue.
“Christ is Lord, He’s My King”
will be the praise of God’s children.
"Maranatha, Lord Come"
is the greeting that we must share.
Loud and clear for all to hear,
this will be the cry of the believer.
America has always been known
as the defender of the faith,
and this year will be proof of that -
we will see the Body of Christ
to defend Christianity.
God’s people will face Jerusalem
as they pray for His Kingdom to come.
All eyes will be on Israel
to see what God is doing.
The branches will seek the Son,
for the coming dawn to break.
But know this,
there will be tremendous growth
in two different directions.
One for Jesus and one for Satan.
And this will happen for two reasons:
While God is growing His Kingdom,
by caring for the people who love Him,
"He will abandon unbelievers
to the lusts of their flesh.
When a person exchanges
the truth of God for a lie,
and worships and serves
the creature rather than the Creator,
who is blessed forever."
God will chase after everyone,
but there will come a time when He,
in His divine wisdom,
will say, "enough is enough."
This is a sobering truth
that I wish
everyone could understand.
It is true.
Everyone is either
drawing closer to God,
or drifting further away
into darkness -
into the abyss of sin,
which really just means -
Void of God.
these people thrive
on the philosophy of humanism,
where humans are at the center
of the universe,
instead of God.
Before the age to come,
Christians will be persecuted,
all across the globe,
and there will be
Those written into the Book of Life
will set their eyes on Christ,
without hesitation or waver.
We will see an increase
in Holy Spirit wisdom and revelation,
among the brethren.
Much will be shared,
and much will be discussed
to grow His Kingdom.
During this season,
faith will be cemented.
Followers of Christ
will not shrink back
from their mission,
despite suffering, opposition
Faces will be set like flint,
with the transition into 2021.
This characteristic of Christ
will be embedded
into the heart of many
dense and unyielding
will not always look like
These believers will be
watchmen and warriors,
ready to endure impossible tasks,
if done in the power of man alone.
They will rely fully
on the Holy Spirit
to tell them what to do
and when to move.
Set Your Face Like Flint!
The Spirit of Stephen
is coming back.
Have you ever judged
a book by its cover,
later to realize
that you were wrong?
Yesterday I heard my Pastor say,
“Be careful not to make
a long-lasting impression
from one reflection
of an exchange.”
The statement was so profound
it stuck to me like a glove.
I sat dumbfounded,
for just a moment,
“I have to write a poem about that.”
are worthier than others -
and his words
were more than enough
to make me think again.
How many times
do we judge another person
by what they post
on social media?
Could it be
that we have been branded
by the social dilemma?
Has Twitter and Facebook
that psychological warfare
is the best kind of treasury?
We now have a platform
where all of our opinions and beliefs
can be exposed openly.
And what we post
is often a twisted version of "me" -
a small shadow of self
that displays what I want you to see.
And when we are face-to-face,
what happens when
I wake up
on the wrong side of the bed?
Perhaps what could have gone right,
may go wrong -
what happens then?
Will you still be my friend?
And what about the man
who has a grumpy old soul,
but longs for connection
more than he will ever show?
How will we respond
when he makes
an obnoxious remark?
Will we hold grudge, or not?
And what about the child
who is angry and dying inside
because she not felt love?
How will we treat her?
Will we be another person
to throw a rock at her soul?
we are all just people.
Filled with all kinds
of thoughts and emotion.
We all have bad days,
while others feel it
Things that trigger us
to be emotionally dys-regulated,
bitter and upset.
Chronic pain, lack of sleep,
Arthritis and food allergies -
all can lead to not feeling our best.
Death and grief,
depression and anxiety
can definitely effect
the way we handle stress.
based on life experiences
can cause us to hunker in.
We do a great job
at holding tight
to our personal opinions.
I am learning that
that every interaction
is not always about "us."
In fact, we must pay attention
to what is going on with "them."
People are born
into different families.
People have their own
And people identify with
races and languages.
People see the world
through different lenses.
There are so many different colors,
and so many different kinds of glasses.
And people express themselves
in so many different ways;
some in writing
and some face-to-face;
and some logical;
some in pictures,
some through songs;
some through glances,
and some through tones.
to different political parties
for different reasons.
Some are pro-choice
and some are pro-life.
Some fight to save
the second amendment.
Some approach poverty
from a top-down perspective,
where the government steps in
for the the good of the collective.
Some see color
as a matter of skin,
while others emphasize
Some pay attention
to foreign affairs,
and some prefer
to focus on the homeland.
I ask you this,
which is right,
and which is wrong?
We should learn
to pay attention
to the reasons of others,
rather than projecting
our own opinion.
The thing is -
I know I evangelize
by sharing the Gospel of Christ;
the truth in love.
I know I must do better
at not passing judgement
because the Lord says
we all have sinned.
We all are biased
even when we think we are not.
I find it interesting
that some smug people
believe they are being totally impartial
when their non-verbal communication,
questions and direction
is screaming they are not.

even when you think
you have not expressed an objection.
Because even the act
of not responding
to an opinion or a situation
says a whole lot.
is the exchange of information;
whether it's accepted or rejected
is not really the point.
Communication still happens
whether we agree or not.
is the sharing of common things;
like people, places and things,
interests and beliefs.
When we take communion with God,
we are communicating with Him
that we believe Jesus is His Son.
is when a group of living beings
come together to make up a social unit.
If we share space,
we are part of each other,
whether we like it or not.
While there are so many differences
that represent all of us,
we must focus in
if we are going to live
We were all born to a mother,
from her womb we did come;
made from an egg and sperm,
combined into one.
We were all babies
who could not tend for ourselves,
and when we are old,
it will probably be the same,
will it not?
We all breath oxygen,
and we all have lungs;
we all have a heart
and a cardio-respiratory system.
We all live
by the breath of life;
and we all return
to the dust of the earth.
We are all given
a number of days
to live as positively, patiently,
peacefully and productively
as we can.
Some believe in a Creator
and some do not,
we must remember
that everything a person does
is not always about us.
has a thought or feeling
There are so many things
that can get in the way
of showing love;
and this is probably why
God commands us to forgive others.
“Be careful not to make
a long-lasting impression
from one reflection
of an exchange.”
I know these words
will continue to sink in deep,
and I hope I can be
a better person because of them.
I guess most of you know
that I wear my faith on my sleeve.
You see, I was a child
who lived traumatized
and grew into a woman
who was super resilient.
I would let people in,
on my own terms,
but as soon as they let me down,
as everyone eventually does,
I would kick them out,
And I did this too
He first came to me
when I was young.
He pursued me more than once.
When the fighting started,
He would comfort me with His love.
I remember writing poems,
when I was only five.
I would go into my head
when I felt all alone.
And I would pretend.
I would imagine a world,
in full color,
where unicorns and rainbows
would fill the land.
I created my own kind of
Wizard of Oz
and I would skip along,
through the wildflowers,
with imaginary friends.
I truly enjoyed my world
before the monkeys came in.
The men would come.
So many of them.
Not for me, but for the drugs.
They would hug me and smile,
and tell me to call them uncle.
They told me how beautiful I was.
They would fumble around,
with their hands,
and penetrate me,
with their eyes.
I was just a child.
All the while,
I would tremble in my bones,
and pray for them
to leave my home.
Always afraid. Never protected.
Always shamed. Never loved.
That's how I felt.
Unless of course,
I was distracted.
I was given grace
through the public school system.
School was a safe place for me to go.
I didn’t have to be afraid
because I knew there were adults
who would take care of me.
Yes, some of the kids were mean,
but I was able to handle them.
It was my teachers' approval
that made me happy.
It was their compliments
that I longed for.
Their classrooms were inviting.
Always clean and comforting.
The sequence and structure
move through the chaotic days.
Their kind words,
and their calls home
My mother would send me to school,
when they called her.
Instead of keeping me home
to take care of my brothers.
You see, I was the family hero
of the chemically addicted family.
I brought hope into a dark world,
and I knew the meaning of responsible.
I was the oldest child, and the only girl -
hope was found, in me alone.
God made me smart,
but my body matured through stress.
I grew up with fight or flight,
running my entire life.
God gave me intelligence.
He gave me an inquisitive mind
that loves to find out;
and He gave me words
to express knowledge.
Reading was my escape
from an unpredictable life;
and writing was my way
to heal myself.
Fourteen schools. Lots of moves.
Never stable. Never smooth.
I was 12 years old
when I called on God,
“God, make it stop!"
is what I yelled.
His Spirit fell on me like a blanket.
A large covering fell on me,
like newly fallen snow.
The fighting stopped,
and the hateful sounds went away.
It’s as if my life
had been turned inside out,
and I was no longer afraid.
Peace surpassed all understanding,
in that incredible moment.
And it all happened
in a haunted house -
in Camillus, New York.
I saw so many things,
in the spirit realm,
including a girl
with patent leather shoes,
who laid in the tub,
beneath the water,
as if she were drowned.
The sounds in the attic
were eerie -
especially at night
when I would hear objects move.
The creeks were frightening.
I could hear them coming down the stairs.
I knew in my spirit,
there was more than one evil spirit
living in my home.
And then there was the basement.
I had to walk right through it,
at 3 am, all alone,
when my mother would not get out of bed
to let me in.
She was sleeping.
She must have been drunk.
She could not hear me
even with the loudest of knocks.
So I summoned up my courage
and opened the outside door
to the basement, and let myself in.
I felt evil eyes, keenly observing me.
I prayed to God
to keep me alive.
I focused, on the light
that shined beneath the door
at the top of the stairs.
God was with me.
I felt His words say, "move along,
"this basement is only a shadow of death."
God has always been there.
I just didn’t really know Him.
He was like an acquaintance
who always showed up
when least expected.
Yet, He was there.
His presence was known,
even more so than my parents.
I tried to get to know God
when I went to college.
I learned all about Him
through my electives -
which were mostly
I studied Native American religion,
Catholicism, Hindu and Baptist.
I studied Islam and Jewish and Buddhist.
And when I was finally done
with my liberal education,
I was completely brainwashed.
I had decided that
God was made by humans.
He was an imaginary Deity
that provided humanity with morality,
as a way to separate
the bad from the good.
This was my new religion -
and it represented an ethical way
for people to live
because it was fully based
on human love.
Thank God, He did not give up on me.
Holy Spirit pursued me.
He chased me down
and impressed upon me
the need to open up His Word.
At 23years old,
I requested a Study Bible
from my husband for Christmas.
I dug in, but the words made no sense.
What was I supposed to read?
Where was I supposed to start?
This was way too difficult
for me to do alone.
At my work, there was a woman,
who was a Christian.
I asked her to help me.
She advised me
to place my hand on the Bible
before even opening it up,
and ask God to help me understand it.
So, that’s what I did.
I started with Genesis.
I read it over and over again.
I was drawn into the history.
It was like reading
a really good fictional story!
So much imagery!
So much feeling!
So much drama happening,
over and over again!
When I was 25,
I met a Messianic Jew
in graduate school.
We became friends,
and he invited me and my husband
to his church.
The First Baptist of Church of Jamesville -
was on the outskirts of Nedrow.
It was not far from home.
was a very kind man,
and he is the one who baptized me,
and helped me feel welcome in church.
Then I got pregnant,
and my husband and I separated.
There was never a time in my life
that I felt more alone.
I died inside,
while my baby grew alive,
but the Lord had taught me
to be strong.
I mean, I had overcome so much.
I was resilient!
From parental divorce
to my mother's mental illness;
from her drug abuse
to sexual perversion and promiscuity,
from cocaine and all kinds of drugs
candy coating my home,
And I did it.
I was the first one in my family
to go to college.
I had learned to be super strong.
As a kid, I was threatened
by my step-father,
not to tell anyone about the drugs in our home,
or else the police would take
our mother from us.
My brothers and I,
never felt loved.
We were rejected
because we all we did
was get in the way
of the adults in our home.
it was happening all over again.
My husband became another person
who I could not depend on.
So I lived, like I had always done.
Strong and resilient -
I moved out on my own.
Just me and my son -
I didn't need no man!
my husband had a change of heart.
He wanted to start over again.
He said he wanted to be
a better man.
He said he was scared,
and wasn't ready to be a dad.
He was angry that I had gotten pregnant,
when he was not ready to move on.
So I moved back in.
But the hurt was never gone.
We had two more children.
And our life moved right along.
We lived in a quaint home,
on 20 acres of land,
but then we moved to Nevada
after my 23 year old brother died.
I was ready to take chances,
because everything changes,
and we only have one life to live.
All this time,
we attended churches.
I even taught the children's ministry,
and I ran a Christian Coffeehouse
on Saturday nights.
The Lord was good!
I learned everything about Him!
He still felt like an acquaintance.
I couldn't explain this.
I studied Him intently.
I learned all I could
to know about Him.
He had a name,
and when I would call it,
He would come with open arms.
But after the trial was over,
I would forget about Him.
I would do life on my own,
while living in the desert,
I went astray,
and cheated on my husband.
I was tempted
to live authentically.
I thought my dreams
were totally up to me.
So I left my husband
and I waited,
but he didn’t do the same.
Promises were made.
became the rope
that choked me.
So I returned to the man
who loved me.
Then we moved.
and marriage infidelity.
Hoping to obtain a life
We moved to the Greater Hills
the closest we could find
to the mountains.
My husband and I.
To move on
pretending as if
nothing had happened.
And then the dream
found me once again.
He kept me on a line
with lots of promises -
so I waited...
I finally realized
it was never going to happen.
I went to the cross
and asked God
to take this temptation away.
I realized it was never
about the man.
It was truly my own shame
that I longed to escape.
But the enemy would not let go.
Temptation came again,
but this time
through my husband.
My husband felt alone.
He was always on the road.
I barely acknowledge him.
He met another woman,
a friend from the past.
But I did not know it.
I could tell.
I knew the signs well.
There's a disgust that comes
when lust is involved.
every hidden interaction.
The pain of rejection stings -
and the bitterness that comes
It hurts to the core of your being.
Satan had his hooks in.
Scales covered our eyes.
Leviathan is twisted.
Too many lies!
Too much distrust!
The hurt was more
than any marriage could bear.
And the words -
they hurt to the core.
The words that we said,
brought death, not life
to our marriage.
It was the only way out!
But then, once again,
God came in.
He healed what we could not.
And He went straight to the rot.
He pulled the weeds out.
"Not in My house, Satan!"
God spoke when we could not.
He pulled us out of the pit,
and He showed us the power of the cross.
He told us to trust Him.
And He did this individually,
in my husband and me,
while we were separated.
The days were unbearable.
We waited on God
to teach us how to love,
and how to forgive.
how His blood covers our sin.
And He showed us
how much He love us.
He taught how to love each other.
I wear my faith on my sleeve
because my heart
has been surrendered.
It’s stronger than the defensive armor
that I used to wear.
It's the essence of who I am,
on the inside and the outside.
My faith is real.
There is no doubt within me.
He is the most stable home
that I’ve ever had.
God is no longer an acquaintance.
He is my most trustworthy friend!
If you don’t know Him intimately
like I do,
then you have no idea what your missing!
If this is you, then just ask me.
I would love to introduce you.
