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.
