You’re not taught this in the world

The Lord has been dealing with me to put these words out that He has laid on my heart. He wants me to encourage you to read His Word and apply it to your life. He is watching us. Regardless of what you think is happening, He is, in fact, taking notice of His creation. He cares about what we are doing, and how we are living. He IS speaking. Now whether you can hear is another thing altogether. It takes being intentional seeking Him out, and He says in His word that you will find him.  (Jeremiah 29:13)

Hebrews 4:12 says that the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any two edged sword, piercing even to the diving asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.


The Word of God is alive! That is what that passage in Hebrews is saying to us. It’s God-breathed as it says in 2 Timothy; Inspired by the Holy Spirit. It reveals us to us and reveals God to us. You learn His character through the Bible. You learn what His voice sounds like, and how He deals with mankind.  

You can’t hide from the Spirit of God. Once you read the Word, it shows you yourself in the pages, and the stories of those who came before us. We get instructions from God, and the world. But who do we follow? Who do we listen to? The bible is our compass on how to live. You will find, as the days and years’ progress that most look at the bible as outdated, and unnecessary. Don’t let that be your way of thinking.


Society’s tolerance for anything and everything, is not a pass for the Believer to do as they want. Likewise, Christians who align themselves with the world is not an example on how to live. Become a fruit inspector if you haven’t already. Even with that, do all things in love. We never want to stumble another brother or sister. Be an example of someone set apart for God without condemning your brother or sister. Judge all things righteously.  (John 7:24)

We are in the world but we aren’t of this world. You will find a separation taking place where it will become obvious who is who. As followers of Jesus Christ, we must live for Him, and be lovers of truth and righteousness. Also, serve one another, instead of being self serving. The world says, “Do you and don’t worry about the next!” I used to say that as well, and believed it. Yet that isn’t what God wants. He wants us to love one another and help each other in our walk. 

We are all in different stages; however, don’t use that to Lord over someone, or to mock someone else. The mature ones should help the babies, and I’m not speaking on length in the ministry, I’m speaking of whether you are ingesting milk or solid foods, and your manner of life. That is an indicator of maturity, not years saved.

Love on eachother. Help one another.


Read the passage below out loud. Get it in your spirit. It will bless you when dealing with your brother or sister. 

Faith comes by hearing, so practice as often as you can to read the word aloud to yourself. Don’t miss this key and revelation that the Holy Spirit revealed to me. 

Bless you all, and make an effort daily to read the bible and pray.

Romans 14:10-15:7 New Living Translation (NLT)

10 So why do you condemn another believer[a]? Why do you look down on another believer? Remember, we will all stand before the judgment seat of God. 11 For the Scriptures say,

“‘As surely as I live,’ says the Lord,
‘every knee will bend to me,
    and every tongue will declare allegiance to God.[b]’”

12 Yes, each of us will give a personal account to God. 13 So let’s stop condemning each other. Decide instead to live in such a way that you will not cause another believer to stumble and fall.

14 I know and am convinced on the authority of the Lord Jesus that no food, in and of itself, is wrong to eat. But if someone believes it is wrong, then for that person it is wrong. 15 And if another believer is distressed by what you eat, you are not acting in love if you eat it. Don’t let your eating ruin someone for whom Christ died. 16 Then you will not be criticized for doing something you believe is good. 17 For the Kingdom of God is not a matter of what we eat or drink, but of living a life of goodness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit. 18 If you serve Christ with this attitude, you will please God, and others will approve of you, too.19 So then, let us aim for harmony in the church and try to build each other up.

20 Don’t tear apart the work of God over what you eat. Remember, all foods are acceptable, but it is wrong to eat something if it makes another person stumble. 21 It is better not to eat meat or drink wine or do anything else if it might cause another believer to stumble.[c] 22 You may believe there’s nothing wrong with what you are doing, but keep it between yourself and God. Blessed are those who don’t feel guilty for doing something they have decided is right. 23 But if you have doubts about whether or not you should eat something, you are sinning if you go ahead and do it. For you are not following your convictions. If you do anything you believe is not right, you are sinning.[d]

Living to Please Others

15 We who are strong must be considerate of those who are sensitive about things like this. We must not just please ourselves. We should help others do what is right and build them up in the Lord. For even Christ didn’t live to please himself. As the Scriptures say, “The insults of those who insult you, O God, have fallen on me.”[e] Such things were written in the Scriptures long ago to teach us. And the Scriptures give us hope and encouragement as we wait patiently for God’s promises to be fulfilled.

May God, who gives this patience and encouragement, help you live in complete harmony with each other, as is fitting for followers of Christ Jesus. Then all of you can join together with one voice, giving praise and glory to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.

Therefore, accept each other just as Christ has accepted you so that God will be given glory.

Word for the year of 2019

Happy New Year!

I have some words of the Lord that He told me to release at this time.



December 13, 2018

I am coming soon, and my reward is with me. Reward for good and bad works. Stay the course. Keep oil in your lamps. I will not delay.

Release this word.

~

He said on December 30, 2018, “Listen and write. Things are changing in your world. People are changing. Dark spirits are manifesting. People will follow them. They will appear as angels of light. But it will be a lie. Stay close and warn the people as I reveal to you. Stay in my word and stay in my presence. My elect will be fooled. Use discernment – don’t just follow people. I will reveal them to you. I want you to be wise. I want you to be safe. I am with you wherever you go. I see you. I hear you. Stay with me. Trust me. Continue to walk in faith and not fear. No fear. Stay rooted  – planted in me as I am uprooting others and planting others.”



This is serious. God is cleaning up His house first, which is the body of believers. We have become comfortable, yet being comfortable will get us deceived and destroyed Being comfortable will have us following the antichrist and taking the mark of the beast.



I have ladies that are subscribed to my mailing list and I asked about them. He then said…


“Tell the ladies that the next year is a year of greatness for those who belong to me but not for those who are unrighteous. I’m seeking those with a heart for me. I’m sending my remnant to the harvest. I need laborers-willing workers. I will bless people and give them the desires of their hearts. Tell them not to stumble at what they see coming upon the earth, These things must take place but the end is not yet. It’s nigh, but not yet. Watch and pray. There is work to do. I will do a new thing. New move of my Spirit. New move. Pouring out on all flesh. Can you see it? Can you discern? Ask them Tara. I desire to fellowship with my children. I desire them to seek me as they do their pleasures. Seek me as they do Netflix. I know and see. I am the living God. I am present. I see all. Commune with me. I desire it.”

Pray to God regarding this word, for yourself. Take everything to Him. Read His word and stay close to Him. (When He said Netflix, I couldn’t believe it LOL. I laughed afterward when I read it over but why laugh?  He does see all. )

What I got from this is love. God loves us so much and He warns us. He says that He won’t do anything until He reveals it to His Prophets, and He’s doing that all over the world. Those with ears to hear will receive it.


This will be a year of encounters with God! And great things in store for the believer. Get ready! His will, will be done! Hallelujah

Also, the Lord brought back the word that He told me in 2017 that the darkness will rise, but our (God’s people) lights will shine even brighter. The harvest is here, and a separating is taking place. We will see who are truly walking with God and who isn’t. He spoke to me about the goats, and the wolves in sheep’s clothing. He spoke to me about the deception that is being released and it will be on a great scale, that even His elect will be fooled. Using discernment is paramount. He says that being close to Him, in His presence and in His word, that He will reveal things to you. This is a year of encounters for some of us and we will see this word (among others) manifested as stated in Hebrews 2:4. God will bear witness of His people.

I am so excited for it all! This is an amazing time to be alive and witness the prophetic events that were spoken of in the bible. Yes, there will be some terrible things happening in divers places, so be strong! Jesus is returning and if you are with Jesus, you will win. This is a battle of light vs darkness, good vs evil, Jesus vs Lucifer. Spoiler alert: Jesus wins!

Stand still and see the salvation of the Lord. Trust Him, and walk by faith and not sight regardless of what you see. Pray for your brothers and sisters all over the world.

Love you all and God bless you in this new year and beyond!

After your “Yes”

Matthew 14:28-30

And Peter answered him and said, Lord, if it be thou, bid me to come unto thee on the water. And he said, Come. And when Peter was come down out of the ship, he walked on the water, to go to Jesus. But when he saw the wind boisterous, he was afraid; and beginning to sink, he cried, saying, Lord, save me.

This is a familiar passage to us all, as we have heard it preached and taught. I happen to love it myself. 🙂 Jesus spoke one word, and Peter was able to walk on the water! And Peter didn’t sink as long as he kept his eyes on Jesus. Hallelujah!

When I woke up late morning (I was able to sleep in Glory to God), in my coffee and scriptures moment with the Lord, the Holy Spirit placed this scripture on my heart, and said that after we say Yes to what God calls us to do, storms come and seemingly upset the plans, and come to shake our outlook and trust. God speaks to us, and affirms us along the way, yet we do have moments of being shaken. He said to notice that Peter experienced fear and what Peter did in his moments of fear: Fear that he couldn’t do it. fear that it wouldn’t happen for him, fear of failure: He cried to the Lord for help!

Choose your approach

We all face moments of fear, although we may not all admit it, and the Lord shows us these examples in the Word of God to help us understand that the people He used were human like us, flawed like us. Ultimately, we must rely on Him. They weren’t super humans who had it all figured out. No, they messed up as we do in thought, word, and action. Life happened to them as it, likewise, does to us.

In fact, many times all you have is a Lord help! Lord save me! Lord show me! Lord how can I do this? Whatever it is, you lead with going to the Lord first. Don’t lean on your own understanding. The enemy wants you to be in your own head trying to figure out the why’s and how’s, yet God says you don’t have to. (You can’t anyway-it will only have your head spinning)

As we go…

Jesus wants us to stay resting in Him, and He will direct our steps. The directing part isn’t up to us. However, we must walk. He doesn’t make us walk- we walk, and He directs, as we go…

When we say, “Yes we will follow God,” that Yes comes with testings of our faith.

You will not escape that, nor do you know how it’s going to show up. My yes has come with marriage issues, children tripping, finances out of whack, deadly disease, major loss of people I love, and more. Yet, I keep looking at God – sometimes, screaming out, “Lord strengthen me, cause if you won’t take me out of it, help me to be strong and endure it.”

As God continues to mold and shape us on the Potter’s wheel, we are becoming what He called us to be – A workman unashamed, full of power in His Spirit! Miracle, signs and wonders following us to the glory of God, producing good fruit, and making disciples.

The making process comes in many ways as a renewal of our mind and a change of our ideas, of what we should be or where we should go. I didn’t think I would be a housewife, and writer. But God had other ideas to get me prepared to walk in purpose. There was some molding that could only be done with me at home – molding in myself, husband and children. I had to let go of the rat race and my plans, relinquish that independent spirit I carried, and learn to depend on God. My story is not yours. Yours is unique to you – but what we have in common, is that God has a purpose and plan for you as well. How will that manifest in your life? I do not know.

To put it another way, don’t focus on what you don’t have or how things are not happening the way you wish. Focus on the fact that we belong to the King and Creator of Heavens and Earth, and although it seems like all hell is breaking loose, and may very well be, WE WIN. Never lose sight of that. This is a spiritual war of good and evil.  See the devil wants you to lose sight of the fact that you are a winner. This story has been written, the end from the beginning. Stay the course, my brother and sister in Christ. The journey has it’s bumps in the road, but God will always keep us. He gives us joy and peace in a world where that does not come naturally. We are safe in His arms. Will we experience hurt and pain? Absolutely, we live with a fallen nature in a fallen world. Read the bible, and you will see that the only difference between them and us is the the period they lived in. There is nothing new under the sun.

There is hope in Jesus, not ourselves.

The Lord has an uncanny way of using every experience. It’s important to realize that nothing is wasted. Romans 8:28 says, And we know that ALL things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are called according to his purpose. 




Were you called?

Endurance

OK, so understand that ALL things, yes even that, will work together for your good. How? I have no clue. That’s not my lane. I do know that in my own life, things that I never thought would be fixed, were. Also, I had to just go forward not knowing the outcome. Pain I never thought would go away, did. Relationships were mended, my body was healed, peace came and rested upon me dealing with the death of loved ones, favor was given in the area of finances, doors were open and shut, among other things, Jesus has taught me to endure.

We learn endurance through our various trials, and hopefully to look to Jesus who is the Author and Finisher of our faith.

There is a constant battle of wills. Yours vs His. Daily this battle happens, and we see the fruits daily of that battle as well.

Be patient with yourself and others. The Word says to let patience have its perfect work, that we may be perfect (mature-of full age) and entire(whole-complete), wanting nothing. (James 1:4)

This battle is NOT yours. It’s the Lords.

Blessings and I leave this with you:




Colossians 1:9-29 English Standard Version (ESV)
And so, from the day we heard, we have not ceased to pray for you, asking that you may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, 10 so as to walk in a manner worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him: bearing fruit in every good work and increasing in the knowledge of God; 11 being strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy;12 giving thanks[a] to the Father, who has qualified you[b] to share in the inheritance of the saints in light. 13 He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, 14 in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins.
The Preeminence of Christ
15 He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation. 16 For by[c] himall things were created, in heaven and on earth, visible and invisible,whether thrones or dominions or rulers or authorities—all things were created through him and for him. 17 And he is before all things, and in him all things hold together. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church.He is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead, that in everything he might be preeminent. 19 For in him all the fullness of God was pleased to dwell, 20 and through him to reconcile to himself all things, whether on earth or in heaven, making peace by the blood of his cross.
21 And you, who once were alienated and hostile in mind, doing evil deeds, 22 he has now reconciled in his body of flesh by his death, in order to present you holy and blameless and above reproach before him,23 if indeed you continue in the faith, stable and steadfast, not shifting from the hope of the gospel that you heard, which has been proclaimed in all creation[d] under heaven, and of which I, Paul,became a minister.
Paul’s Ministry to the Church
24 Now I rejoice in my sufferings for your sake, and in my flesh I am filling up what is lacking in Christ’s afflictions for the sake of his body, that is, the church, 25 of which I became a minister according to the stewardship from God that was given to me for you, tomake the word of God fully known, 26 the mystery hidden for ages and generations but now revealed to his saints. 27 Tothem God chose to make known how great among the Gentiles are the riches of the glory of this mystery, which is Christ in you, the  hope of glory. 28 Him we proclaim, warning everyone and teaching everyone with all wisdom, that we may present everyone mature in Christ. 29 For this I toil, struggling with all his energy that he powerfully works within me.

My dream of Jesus and the candles

Stay dressed for action and keep your lamps burning. 


Luke 12:35
If you follow me, you know that I am a dreamer. Not in the whimsical way of fantasy, but in a spiritual way, where God communicates with me. (Some of you still call that fantasy…) But truly, it is amazing and I love to go to sleep, because my dream life is so vivid. I know many of you can relate, because God is pouring out His Spirit in these days. 

I had this particular dream that I am going to share with you on November 29, 2018. 

Jesus was in my dream speaking to many ladies. There were so many… more than I could even count. They were all standing in front of Jesus holding a candle with a fire lit. He said to some of the ladies that their fire will go out and to others it will never go out. He was specific – “Yours will go out,” and “Yours will last forever” that type of thing.
He said to one “You seek a title,” and to another “You seek fame and fortune,” to another “You seek me only.”  I was standing beside Him observing all of this, and I asked Him “Why?” He said because of the intent of their heart. Those seeking fame, fortune and title will have the fire but it will go out. 
“And those with a heart for my people and ministering in sincerity, the fire will never go out. My Spirit will stay rested upon them. I am looking at the heart. “

This was a sobering dream – a warning dream, and the Lord said to share it with this message, and those with ears to hear will receive. Jesus said that some of our lights will burn forever and some will go out, even though it’s burning right now. Many will be deceived and caught up with the cares of this world, believing they are saved. It will be like the scripture in Matthew that says, many will say Lord we prophesied in your name, and He said that He never knew them. That is found here: Matthew 7:21-23

The Candle represents the light of God/Light of Christ.

We are living in a time where it will become apparent who the true Christians are. Many call themselves servants and followers of Jesus, but a line will be drawn. The rubber will meet the road, and the truth will show. The Lord is not mocked. Whatsoever we sow, we shall reap. (Galatians 6:7-9)

Check yourself

Our motives are important to God. We must test ourselves daily whether we are in the faith or not.( 2 Corinthians 13:5) We have the ability to pretend, and can show one face to the world and another to our brothers and sisters in Christ, but all faces are seen by God. He is saying to us that He is watching, and things in the dark will come to light. You don’t want your candle burning out and losing the light of Christ. That is a scary thought!

Daily we make choices, and those choices affect our life either immediately or down the road. This is a spiritual and natural law- reaping and sowing. You can’t get away from it, therefore, we must make wise choices. 

I think, well, actually I know, because I have been guilty of this: When we don’t always see immediate results of our bad decisions, we tend to think all is well, and that we have gotten away with something. When the reaping season comes we don’t always understand why all hell is breaking loose because we don’t contribute it to the thing(s) we may have done in the past (or present.)  Ecclesiastes 8:11-12.

In other words, we cannot do whatever we want, no matter how much that is encouraged in the world. And as a former free spirit who did whatever she wanted, I can attest that God does not approve of that type of mindset and lifestyle.

Opposition

You will face opposition living a holy and set apart life for God. Expect it. If you read your Word, you will see that true Christ followers always had opposition from the world because they were different. There was; however, a remnant of true followers. Same will be true today. I encourage you to fight the good fight of faith. This is a fight. Didn’t you know? The enemy is after our soul.

It’s important to realize that we are deceived because he shows up as an angel of light, and not with red horns. For example, as a job that keeps you from church and/or your family. He shows up in putting lying thoughts, that are contrary to what God says about you, in your mind- Lies that shake you and make you question if it’s even worth it being a Christian. He shows up as doubt, mistrust of God, and condemnation. He will come wherever he sees an opening, believe me. 

Moreover, we must pray daily for God to strengthen us from fear of man, which is a genuine fear. We don’t want to water down God’s Word for fear of how it will be received. Daily we see and hear of reports of people in the world increasing in their hate of anything relating to Jesus. Good is spoken of as evil, and evil as good in today’s society. The bible is getting pushed out, and not looked upon as an authority on how we should live. People are worshipping the universe, and not the one who created it. There is alot going on and it will get worse. If the Lord tarry, this will be a real test of faith for us as a body of believers.

The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom as the Bible says. People can kill our body only but God is the one who can raise us from the dead to eternal life. So fear God above man. (Matthew 10:26-28)

In a Nutshell

So what am I saying? This world and its cares are falling away. With that in mind, what manner of person should you be? What’s important to you? Living for the day, or eternally? What about your family? What are you striving after? (2 Peter 3:10)  Where does your heart lie? 


Build yourself up daily in your most holy faith, and surround yourself with people who are walking with God, as iron sharpens iron. I say it over and over when I write and speak, that we are one body and we need each other. We aren’t meant to walk this walk alone.

Consequently, we choose good or evil every day. Somehow, we think that we can continue to walk the line, be nasty to others, hold grudges, back bite, sow discord etc, and think God isn’t watching or because as I stated earlier, no repercussions have occurred. God desires us all to be saved and is patient with us, but that will not always be the case. Yes, He is merciful, and full of loving kindness, but never forget He is the lion of Judah and one day we will all stand before Him to give an account.

Mandate

I am careful with my words now because I will give an account for every word that I speak. I didn’t always think that way, and I still fall short, but by the grace of God, as I keep growing in my knowledge of Him, reading and studying the bible, I am more conscious of how I walk this Christian walk daily. (Matthew 12:36) I encourage you to do the same.

We must live in this world, but we better wear it like a loose garment so that we aren’t caught up in it, because our very lives depend on it. We are in the last hour, and Jesus will return soon. I don’t know a date, and neither do you, but I know we are to watch and pray. In the meantime, lets preach the gospel and make disciples, knowing that Jesus is with us. 

Love people, speak about the goodness of our Saviour, enjoy the blessings that God bestows upon you, but check your motives daily. Are you seeking recognition? Title? Fame and/or fortune? Or do you genuinely want to see people saved? He said some specific words in my dream. Seek HIM ONLY. That is our mandate. Seek God and His righteousness. Keep the main things the main thing. He will take care of everything else according to His will.

Let’s keep pressing, leaning on the Lord daily for ALL of our needs. Will we be people who trust God for their salvation, but not their daily needs? He knows what we need, and will take care of us, even give us the desires of our hearts, but there is a condition. (Matthew 6:33:   ; Psalm 37:4)

Trust and lean on Him every day, understanding that He promised to direct our path. (Proverbs 3:5-6)
God loves us! So much that He sent His son, Jesus to die for us sinners. He who knew no sin became sin for us, so that we could live! To save us!

Now what manner of love is that?!

Blessings.

Urgent Prophetic Message: What are you looking at?

It’s time for a self-check

introspection

I am a dreamer, both literally and figuratively. The Lord has been downloading dreams to me for years that have intensified over the last year. In the past month, He has been giving me interpretation, and teaching me how to understand what He is showing me to help myself and for others that He gives dreams to that are connected to me. This is all very cool, and awesome, but some of the dreams are terrifying. Lately, I’ve been seeing end times events, and I understand that prophetically these things must take place, but as I look upon them, its frightening, and I feel compassion for those who don’t know Him. Many don’t understand the times we are living in. They have eyes but don’t see. (Acts 28: 26-27)

Comparatively, many feel the same way today. They are looking around at the natural disasters occurring all over the world, the demons manifesting in people with all of the violence and erratic behavior, a huge moral decline, political unrest and more, and its frightening. It’s no wonder, people are asking, “What is going on?” But I ask again, “What are you looking at?”

You see, what you look at you empower. What goes through our eyes is powerful. Have you ever heard that the eyes are the window to the soul? It’s a saying from William Shakespeare, yet there is a scripture regarding this as well, read Matthew 6: 22-23. The soul is our mind, will and emotions, and what we take in affect those areas greatly. What you look at, and focus on will not only affect your outlook on life and current circumstances but your behavior.

Faith requires focus

Did you know that? Faith requires intentional focus on God. It can’t be by logic and reason because faith doesn’t make sense. If I were to focus on the devastating parts of the dreams I have or even all the terrible things taking place on the earth, then it would affect me mentally, and emotionally. I would entertain, and feed into it, as if this was the only life I had. Similarly to many out there, I would do whatever I wanted and live as if there was no tomorrow, because it’s not promised anyway.

But I have a hope of eternal life and I hold on to that hope! There is eternal life after death for me, and you also, if you accept Jesus as your Savior, Messiah and King.  I believe Jesus, so with that in mind, I can’t focus on events that were prophesied to take place. I am to watch and pray. What that means is to pay attention and be aware of the times that we are in, pray without ceasing, and share the gospel, which is the good news about Jesus.

There is hope! If you were to only focus on what the mainstream media is pushing to us all, it’s easy to lose hope, and put you in a negative, hate filled form of mind. However, I want you to be aware that there are only a few companies that own about 90% of all major media outlets that give us our news and tv programming. There is an agenda, and I’ll give you a hint (control out of chaos–controlled chaos) Moreover, there is alot of social engineering and brainwashing going on, so keep in mind that there is an agenda and they control the narrative.

We as people, have been watched for a long time, and contrary to popular belief, the devil is patient. He has been around longer than we have and he knows us. He watches our habits, and he has empowered the kings of the world, just like in biblical times. Nothing has changed except the modern time that we live in. There is nothing new under the sun, as King Solomon so eloquently said in Ecclesiastes 1:9.

Jesus is the only way. The world as we know it, will end. People know this and some feel like worshipping satan/lucifer puts them on the winning side, but every knee shall bow and tongue confess that Jesus is Lord! Glory to God!

Here is a Word from the Lord that I received September, 9, 2018:

“To my children, I am coming soon. Wait for me, watch for me. I will not delay. My reward is with me. I have spoken.”

When I got that message, I sat quietly for a few moments and then I started to cry out, “Lord have mercy!” He said His reward was with Him. Read Revelation 22: 12-14.

The cost is too great

People, we can’t afford to focus on the world. Be aware, yes, but not shaken and stirred to the point of a negative action on your part. We must be mindful of what we take in our eye and ear gates, because our focus can make the difference of death or eternal life.

Are you focusing on past failures? If so, how can you see what God is doing in, and around you? Life happens to us all, and I am not taking away from your pain by any means. I have experienced my fair share and more, but I keep looking at God, who is the author and finisher of my faith. Looking at past failures or current world situations can cause you to be depressed, or become bitter, both emotions open the door for the devil to come set up shop with his minions. It takes intentionality to refocus, casting down all thoughts that exalt themselves against the knowledge of God.  (2 Corinthians 10: 5-6)

Our society is heading towards civil and ethnic chaos. There is such a great division in the world and that is BY DESIGN. As a matter of fact, it’s here already, but all of this hate will soon come to a climax, and people are choosing sides in the natural and spiritual. There are only 2 kingdoms: The kingdom of God and the kingdom of this world, and I want you to wake up to this fact, as so many are asleep. People ask, “Are you woke?” and they refer to black people being of Hebrew origin, but I ask if you’re woke to Jesus soon return? Are you woke to the times that we are living in?

My daughter had a dream a few years ago about the sleeping church. We are the church. The Lord keeps bringing this dream back to me. We are sleeping now, in this dispensation of time. Here is the dream:  She was in a big church and there was a full congregation, and the pastor was preaching and then he snapped his fingers and every head fell down asleep except hers. Once they fell asleep his shell of a body fell and hit the pulpit but now a demon was in its place and he turned and looked at my daughter and she said, (his look was as if to say, “how can you see me?”) and then he snapped his fingers again and the people woke up but they didn’t notice that the demon was preaching. They didn’t see or perceive it. and she woke up.

Right Vs. Left

People are standing to the right and left and drawing lines in the sand, even Christians who are supposed to be the light and show love to even the “unlovable” ones. The Word says that in the last days the love of many would wax cold. (Matthew 24:12) Anger begets anger; likewise, hate begets hate. Only love can conquer these feelings. We have to stop being apart of the division and show the love of Christ. SHOW LOVE, as we are all people sharing this human experience.

Who’s focusing on God and His word? Who? I see Christians on social media feeding into the dogma being put out. No, I am not saying to ignore it, but there is a way to handle these things, as men and women of God. Your conversations and social media posts shouldn’t focus on the problem more than the solution, which is Jesus Christ. We should all be pointing people to Him. He is our hope. If you keep looking and talking like the world, you will start to believe what is put out, and your love will wax cold. What you feed will grow.

salvation in jesus memeThere is not a man or woman on earth that can solve our issues. We need Jesus and should be praying for His return. And why are we surprised by the actions of unsaved people? Whether that’s people you personally know or see on tv. Why the surprise? The Lord tells us to inspect the fruit of the tree. A good tree does not produce rotten fruit and a rotten tree does not produce good fruit. People who’s fruit do not reflect the love and fellowship of Jesus Christ should not incite a debate in you. What do you expect them to do? God is the only one that changes people, He makes us into a new creature, with a renewed mind. Our mind is constantly renewed by what we feed it and what we look at.

What are you looking at?

Where’s your focus? We all want peace in the world, but there is no real peace without God. Peace is not the absence of conflict but the presence of God. If I, and my fellow Christians were to walk in love and the fruits of the Spirit, the peace and joy that radiates through us will transcend to others.

I can’t be apart of the problem, because there is enough bickering going on. I don’t like it, nor do I entertain it. Many things I hear about or catch a video clip of hurt my heart, and I say, “Come Lord Jesus.” because I know that He is the only solution. Many are losing their loved ones daily, and I understand this level of pain. Moreover, I know the Comforter, and although loved ones are leaving this earth and resting, we are here to battle still and to mourn, yet we don’t mourn as those without hope. He put us in the world with His Holy Spirit and we, as Spirit filled Christians, are supposed to be here making a difference in the world, but that isn’t happening.

In spite of all of that, what I do know, and trust, is the written and rhema Word of God. I received a Word while going through Chemotherapy, and God said, on March 28, 2017, “There will be a revival in America. The darkness will arise, but your light will shine even brighter.” I say “Hallelujah!” to that. Our light, as believers, will shine even brighter! Faith is the substance of things hoped for but not seen. Hope that you can see is not hope at all.

My hope is in Jesus. I have faith in the Word of God. I believe Him when He said that we would do greater things. Miracles, signs and wonders, follow those who believe. Don’t be discouraged, adjust your eyes. Pray and ask the Lord to increase your faith and discernment. Jesus is alive and on the throne! No matter what it looks like, WE WIN!!!!

Be Blessed

Perspective. What’s yours?

The secret to life…

I was praying about some things and people that God laid on my heart and also those that I know are going through. Once I stopped and sat quietly to just listen, He said, “Perspective.”

He gave me these scriptures:  Matthew 6:25-34, Philippians 1:12-14 and Philippians 4:11-12.

 

I read and studied them as I reflected on my life, circumstances and state of mind.

 

Perspective means a mental view or prospect.

 

-attitude

-mindset

-viewpoint

-way of looking

 

It’s how you view things. And how many know that HOW you VIEW things is EVERYTHING?

Have you heard the saying that life is 10% of what happens to you and 90% of HOW you react to it?” Your reactions are tied to your viewpoint of said situations. How do you interpret what is going on? Our attitude and perspective, shapes our beliefs and desires.

 

What if your perspective was that life happens? Things will occur and you have to role with it? Or that woe is me because life happens and you lose all coping mechanisms, when things are tough?

 

I posted a meme before on my Instagram, and I will share it here.fall down stairs meme

It sums up my perspective as it relates to life. Walking with God through my various trials has helped me to grow stronger in this viewpoint. I understand that He is with me, and I will not fall.

 

 

Situations, especially tough ones, show us what we are made of.

 

 

fight or flightHave you ever heard of fight or flight? I had that bad. I would either stand strong and fight or run away. I would leave relationships when they were too hard, or a job. That is a natural response to a perceived harmful event, attack or threat to survival. It could be something mentally or physically, but you may want to run away from it to not deal with it. Or you  may stay and fight through it. Fight or flight is how we deal with stress. Perspective will help in this instance as well

Through my trials I’ve learned endurance. I am actually living out Philippians 4: 11,12. I have learned to be content in all situations. Consequently, I know what it’s like to have plenty and not so much. I don’t put that on the enemy either. I know that the Lord is making, shaping and molding me. I am a willing servant, and have the understanding that in the making process things get chopped off. In the fire it burns sometimes, but we come out pure as gold.

 

 

God provides ALL of my needs.

 

Brief Testimony

 

Over the last 2 years, our finances went from 2 incomes to 1. Needless to say, that is a huge change when it happens right after purchasing your first home, with 2 car notes, insurance, children, and all the daily expenses that come with living. We were used to plenty. We ate out regularly, socialized and attended movies and what not. We did allot that required money. I paid for whatever my children wanted to do, because I worked a lot and although I was gone to work, they had the funds to do what they needed. (Later I came to understand that they needed me, more than the money)

What am I saying? I am saying that I had a choice. God said to leave my salon while I was going through cancer. He said that He had something better for me and that He wanted me to merge into who I was. That it was time for me to be in ministry. This is part of my ministry–teaching through writing and speaking on my weekly broadcast. I could have chosen to obey or disobey, as my free will permitted.

What I found was that Jesus was no longer my first love, but making money, keeping up my lifestyle, and being able to buy what I wanted was. I didn’t know it at the time, until He allowed me to be sat down. My perspective had to change, and it has.Glory to God! God has been taking care of me, and my family. What do your actions say about your perspective? Think about it. What situation do you find yourself in currently? How do you view it?

 

 

 

Renewed Mind

 

Now, I understand that everyone does not have that perspective, but I am encouraging you to adapt it. I am pleading with you to believe the report of the Lord who promises to never leave nor forsake you. He says that we are more than conquerors through Jesus Christ and no weapon that is formed against us shall prosper. Do you believe that? Not understand it in theory, but BELIEVE it?  Do you have confidence it it’s truth even without the absolute proof of seeing it. That’s faith. True faith. You don’t know cause you don’t SEE it, but you TRUST and absolutely BELIEVE because God says so. You believe HE is so and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him. Faith is the substance of things hoped for yet not seen. This will keep you. Faith will keep you in a peaceful place. A place where you wait on the Lord and be of good courage. Knowing that others are suffering afflictions as well will keep you. Sharing testimonies and fellowshipping with your brothers and sisters will keep you.

Our present suffering does not compare to the joy that awaits us. Let’s keep the main thing (Jesus) the main thing. The enemy wants us in bondage. He wants us in the bondage of fear. Fear of losing what we have, fear of death, fear of perception, so much fear. He wants us to walk by sight and not faith. He wants us to be all in our emotions and our flesh. It takes intentionality and a changed mindset to walk out our faith in a courageous way. It take a renewed mind to disconnect from what the masses are doing. You can live and enjoy your life, but understand that God and His kingdom must be your portion. It must be your focus. God promises to work everything else out for you if you seek His Kingdom and it’s righteousness because one things for sure, He knows what you stand in need of. (Matthew 6:33,34)

 

 

Endurance of Trials

 

IMG_0467Cancer taught me that my total dependency is on God. I couldn’t save my life, nor could money. Only God can do that. There are millionaires that die from cancer even after trying all types of treatments. My vehicles, home, and whatever else couldn’t save me. Understand that our jobs can’t save us. Most of us are a paycheck away from homelessness. Do you know that? What if the banks closed and you didn’t have access to your money? What if there was a blackout? Do you see what I’m saying? Or a natural disaster where you must evacuate. WHO do you depend on? Don’t wait until disaster to call on God for help. You need to have Him now! And have Him in the proper prospective. Choose to follow Him today!

Losing my mom suddenly was super tough for me to go through. I learned that I could do nothing to change that; however, the Lord let His Spirit fall upon me and gave me peace. My dad was dying from cancer as we both were battling and all of that hurt like you cannot believe and still hurts today because I miss them so much. I then lost my beautiful young cousin suddenly from Lupus complications. They are all resting and I am still here going through. Death of loved ones hurt, yet I still choose to adopt the viewpoint of: Things change–It will be ok. I never thought it would be ok suffering that type of pain, but time heals. It makes things more bearable. Focusing on the Lord, living for Him, helping others and getting out of my own head, makes it better. Understanding that my life woes are not everything. Sometimes we need to get out of our box, and look around. There are many that have less, and are happier. Why? Perspective.

The End of the Matter

In conclusion, My perspective changed through the loss of both my parents, battling stage 3 breast cancer and a huge change in my financial status. I can’t add one cubit to my life! Not even one. God is my source for everything. The constant has always been God. He does not and has not changed in any way. I’ve grown to love Him so much more. I know Him and He knows me. God knows my name, and it is written in the Lambs book of life. I understand that He chose me for such a time as this, and regardless of any situation I look to the Hills where my help comes from.

Sadly, this world is in labor pains, and as a people we are all experiencing some form of trial and tribulation in our life, whether we are directly or indirectly connected to it. We are in the end times, and the birth pains are progressive. Things will not get better until Jesus comes. Man CANNOT save us or make life better, no matter what they say. Peace and security is an illusion and delusion, and once it’s said (and it will be said) (1 Thessalonians 5:3) then sudden destruction will come upon the Earth as we have never seen. That is a prophecy. Trust in God!  Jesus is the way, truth and life. (John 14:6) I am excited for His return, yet sad for all that is occurring in the world. But these things must take place.

Finally, I encourage you to ponder this question: What’s your perspective on life?

The secret to life is Perspective.
