Folks have been asking about the book above. You can pre-order it and get it mid-October. Otherwise you can get by December when it's out for full release. Click the book to order.
P.S. Don't apologize for emailing me. It's my preferred method when you have questions and are seeking deliverance. That's what it's for.
Now ... I'm so hype I just pray I can make sense for y'all today. This will probably be a two-parter because I only have so much time and I have a lot to share.
I passed more than a year's worth of tests from God in the last week. It wasn't that I was in training for 17 months and given all the tests at once. It was just that it took Zari that much time to pass all the tests and several of them just happen to come due this past week. So God tested me all week - August 5-9 - I passed and He rewarded me August 10. Aww, yeah!
I had more situations this past week where if God didn't show up with a whole legion of angels I was gonna get slapped in the face than I'd ever want. He showed up one, I got slapped the next. He showed up again, I got the door slammed in my face the next. He showed up again. Showed up again. Right here I took a nap, which I like to do because I'm so good at them ... and during this nap I dreamed I was cycling through a series of four issues.
If I went one way this lady in a black burka was chasing me. I had knowing she was a witch. So to get away from her I ran into a building and up the stairs right into another potential disaster. It's kinda gruesome so I won't disclose it here. To get away from that horror I had to fall backward. The fourth attack put me in a situation of being choked. I cycled through these four things 3-5 times and then said, "I still haven't gotten deliverance," and went running out of whatever building I was in into a courtyard. I was free at the point so I was twirling in the air like a ballerina and saying, "I'm free!" Then five people walked up to me and encircled me. Two were coworkers who I know in waking life and the third was one's husband. The fourth was another man unknown to me. The fifth was what I knew to be a high-up boss in my company, but I don't know him in waking life to be an actual person. I asked, "Why did you all come over to me?" The boss said, "Because that's the type of joy we like to see in all our employees." He had a huge smile on his face. My alarm went off here, and I awoke with my mind racing.
The next time the enemy stuck a foot out and tried to trip me, but God worked it out. And three hours and 21 minutes after this almost-fall but victory for The Kingdom, God sent a miracle reward that I was beginning to think wasn't happening. Eva.
I've gotta bounce now, so we'll all have to come back to get the deets. I'm gonna list some reminders here so I can be sure to share everything. This (these) testimonies and deliverance processes are gonna bless you if you're seeking freedom:
From The Shelter of The Most High and down the street from love

Sorry for the big pic of myself. Just thanking God for another year. I'm honored to be able to serve Him and am looking forward to the great things in store.
Right after I recorded this vid the enemy body slammed me. Hard. I haven't been attacked to tears in a long time, but they unleashed a barrage of hate-filled lies at me for a few minutes and I was paralyzed. I'd love to say I went to war, but I got mad at God instead of them - I repented quickly (He's been working on this with me recently; I think I shared it in a post already, but if I didn't I'll publish it soon). They targeted my weak spot; right to the heart - relationships. This is an area that God has been healing piece by piece this year.
When the enemy tells us things, the opposite is Truth. So even though they had me immobilized for a few minutes, they actually ended up blessing me because their lying tantrum reinforced what's real. They said I was losing and should die, hide, drop my conference and stop speaking for God. So that's means I'm on the right track!
I also suspect there may be something in the video that's powerful. I'm gonna keep looking for what they were trying distract me from doing or receiving, and I'm expecting big-time restitution, too.
Please release verbal agreement that God judge the enemy for that attack, that He come down on them with full vengeance and that I be compensated according to God's desire. Thank you.
Also, keep in mind that if you ever yell one thing after another that's wrong to a person, you're hurting them and acting like demons. I did this last March, and now that I see how horrible it was, I'm gonna cleanse that day and that argument. Another blessing of healing and deliverance coming out of the demonic's attack. He truly does work everything for my great.
Big thanks and blessings to Patti Cake and Selena for their intercession.
Register for #SY5779 at www.ZariBanks.co. Oh, yeah ... please release verbal agreement that God reveal who is to receive the registration that was sown. Thanks.

I'm back with this. I know some probably think I'm a negative nelly but I am not. I'm a woman who reads The Bible and gets hype about God's shows of power and majesty and then looks at my life and is like ... Dude, what's really going on here?
That causes me to ask Him questions and keep on asking until I get answers. I also go Hebrew, Aramaic and Greek so I get better understanding of what is translated into English. We lose A LOT of what's truly in The Logos through translation. Study is required, folks.
MYTH: We can cancel every demonic attack if we're close to Holy Spirit.
TRUTH: Psalm 34:19, Romans 8:14; 32, 1 Corinthians 13:12, 2 Corinthians 4:8-9, 1 Peter 4:13 ... this is such a ridiculous statement I could list even more verses but I'm gonna stop. I will tell you to take note of Job's discourse, though, because there are several verses consecutively that contradict this myth.
This conversation actually began because they tweeted that nothing can stop God's plans for your life and if you know me, you should know I jumped on that one. I asked what the thoughts behind that statement were because a million different things can stop God's plans for our lives. The big thing being most DO NOT KNOW God's plans for our lives. He doesn't lay out every detail. He gives clues and makes us step out in faith, trying, failing, growing and then going back in for feedback. Over and over again throughout all of our years. I wish He would lay out everything for me so I could stop wondering and stop making mistakes. But The Lord and His creativity loves fixing and solutioning (yes, that's a Zari word) my messes.
The reply made sense. They don't want people focusing on the negative, they want positive thinkers. I totes get that. But even Mandisa came back and corrected in her song Unfinished. It's NOT easy to overcome every attack much less completely block every attack.
How close to Holy Spirit do you have to be so that you can cancel EVERY attack? I prayed in tongues 50 hours a month for three months - that wasn't close enough to stop every attack. How do you get THAT close? What is the process? Name one person who's lived this as reality. I asked the tweeter these things, too. I'm awaiting an answer. Let's go to The Word, which was made flesh in Yeshua.
Yeshua said that He gave us authority over all the power of the enemy and nothing will by any means hurt us (Luke 10:19), right? When I asked Holy Spirit what that meant I learned two things.
Psalm 34:19 shuts down that stupid statement all together. It's one of my go-tos because it's the story of my life. MANY are the afflictions (definition: something that causes pain or suffering) of the righteous (definition: morally right or justifiable, virtuous; aka close to Holy Spirit) but The Lord delivers them out of them all. It doesn't read, not even in Hebrew, many afflictions hit everyone except those who are close to Holy Spirit. No, dear ones, The Word actually tells us that we're gonna have lots of pain of suffering as people in close relationship with Holy Spirit.
A couple other verses I have listed above reference us being children of God and Him not sparing His own son. If we're sons of God and He doesn't spare us, we can't cancel every instance of hurt and harm. Also, we see in part. So what if Holy Spirit does show us how to cancel EVERY attack (I still need to know the entire life history of anyone who's experienced this as reality) because we only see in part, what if we miss something? Or don't understand an instruction? It happens all the time. I've matured and understand differently and betterer than I did in years past.
We're to share in Christ's sufferings. Hearing and reading about something does not compare to experiencing the same suffering. Yeshua was betrayed and doubted by most of His circle and everyone else just wanted something from Him. Those things hurt Him. He was a man. The Man of Sorrows. But, He had authority, earned authority, and maturity and didn't allow those hurts and harms to wound Him. And He was close to Holy Spirit. His death was a demonic attack, but it was God's plan, God's allowance and He submitted to it.
Paul didn't get everything right. Adam and Eve sure didn't get everything right and I don't know if there were two people ever closer to God than they were. They were in Eden with God physically coming down to chill every evening and they couldn't cancel satan's attack. Moses didn't get it right. David didn't. None of these Bible big names were able to cancel every attack. John got The Revelation of Yeshua and couldn't cancel every attack.
Again, you may be thinking I'm haggling over pennies, but I just want us believers to stop saying stupid stuffs and get real and get delivered so we can advance The Kingdom. Also, there are naive folks out there who repeat and believe that and it's just not true. We're supposed to be people of Truth.
I could go on and on about this but I'm gonna make one last point and close. How do we grow if we cancel every attack and are protected from everything? We can't. If you don't work muscles, they get flabby, soft. Listen ... I've tried to run from several battles in my life so I know what I'm talking about. But the problem with running from them is that they keep coming around again because God's plan requires me to face them head on, and use that experience as earned authority to advance The Kingdom. There are some attacks you can cancel. There are some attacks that God cancels without us even knowing because there's no benefit to The Kingdom if they came. Some attacks are specifically manufactured by God, with the demonic's limited allowance, because God needs warriors with authority in certain realms and He knows which warriors were created for each battlefield. Let's pray:
Heavenly Father, I lift up social media to You for cleansing and sanctification. We ask that You go back to it's inception and cover our sins of ignorance and failing to perform due diligence on our proclamations with Yeshua's Blood. I repent of all the times I presented my immature understanding as truth. I know You're a personal God and deal with us all individually, and if I misjudge someone whom You've given authority to cancel every attack, I repent. I would like that anointing and not have to fight so much myself. Nevertheless, not mine, but Your will be done. I ask this in Yeshua's Name and seal this prayer by Holy Spirit.

We have a registration that was sown to give away! I Praise God for the investments in my Kingdom work. Without even having to ask for sponsors of any sort. Thank You, Yeshua, for putting Your seal of approval on this conference. Please release verbal agreement that God identifies His intended receiver with clarity at the right time. Thx.
So ... I've gone up another level. And I'm excited. I started out cleansing land - which makes sense because I've been a land runner for more than two decades, praying and communing with Holy Spirit as I went. And now that I've received some reconciliation with land (there was a seasonal window for that in June; I pray you took advantage) I'm moving forward cleansing time.
God invited me into conversations about time over and over again but I didn't want follow Him. If you recall in 5777 I recorded a series of teachings about all the revelation from that year. One of the big topics was Windows of Time, but as I shared before I was afraid of what God showed me so I didn't stick with it. Has that ever happened to you? God showed you something that you couldn't really wrap your mind around so you dropped it? I'm sure it has/does. There are things in The Bible that we don't understand how or why so we choose to leave them be instead of doing research.
Anyhoo ... The Lord was showing me windows on the unseen highway that could be entered and were directly related to our life timelines (Psalm 139:16). I now realize that those windows can help us reconcile and cleanse our timelines when they've been defiled by sin, iniquity or rebellion. So you know how you sin at a certain time in your life and then end up with consequences for decades even after doing some work? Or your ancestors may have and you're suffering knowingly or unknowingly for their sins? Well, with Holy Spirit we can cleanse those instances of time and then walk into deliverance and freedom and blessing.
That's what I've been doing this week. It's not easy. At all. But it's gonna be so worth it. I believe the 150 hours of tongues helped push this breakthrough into the natural. Let's pray:
God of Time, I submit to Your will to have my life timeline sanctified. Let Your Kingdom come for me right now today and as I continue on this journey to greater deliverance. I pray this in Yeshua's Name. Amen.

I received an email asking for teachings from me. If you're not getting enough from my blogs, I have several audio teachings available for download which you can access by clicking either of the pictures above. Other options are booking mentoring sessions or attending #SY5779 in October.
Breaking Generational Curses was the first deep deliverance offering of 2018. It gives you a format for locating those tough areas in your life that God wants to deal with, but you may have no clue about. Seven by 7 Power Prayer is a 7-week prayer protocol going through Colossians 1.
Both of these processes brought me to greater freedom than I've ever experienced before and I'm enjoying this season of life immensely. I pray they do the same for those who partake.
Now to the importanter stuffs. 😉
I finished my 3-month season of praying in tongues daily - I hit 150 hours of tongues on June 30. I was expecting something huge when my season ended, but nothing huge happened. I asked God what was up with the delay in my huge something and when He showed up (a couple days later, mind you - He's on His own sked for real), He helped me realize that it may not have resulted in an explosive occurrence at conclusion, but provided a lot of incremental blessings and provisions throughout. So all those things - three months of amazing peace - are what I have to celebrate and be thankful for.
And that's huge. Do you know how many people's lives are in turmoil? Believers, too. And I just experienced three months of complete peace. Peace is priceless. You may not realize how amazing three months of peace is, because your life is so hectic you can't imagine it. Or perhaps you're in constant pain so you can't imagine it. I just lived it.
But, the day after I stopped, the enemy attacked me pretty good. I suspect they'd been wanting to hit me with their usual mess but couldn't because I was in a Holy Spirit bubble for a while. And even though they've caused me some problems, they also messed up. The attack made me ask The Lord why it was allowed. I got the answer - a trauma bond - and I went to work to get delivered and healed. I also exercised dominion over time to compress (quicken) the healing process. Lastly, my spirit stepped to the front to participate and release heaven's strategy. This is a prime example of God working things together for my great (Romans 8:27-28).
A matured spirit can facilitate healing for you, too. You just have learn how to work with it. Ministering to the human spirit is one of the things Patti and I will cover at #SY5779. The Church has done a solid job of ministering to our souls, but The Bible tells us that our spirits have an umbilical cord to The Godhead (John 17:21), so we need to nurture them even more than our souls. Our souls can't/don't exist outside of our bodies, but our spirits go into eternity so they're a priority.
Additionally, a matured spirit will keep us from falling back into sin which is a soul issue (read Romans 6). The portion of you that dies is the soul, the old man. The new creation is a spirit that's alive to commune in God's realms. Exciting stuffs.
I did some data collecting last week in an attempt to determine if it was only my circle or a bigger issue of enemy attack. I believe it was just my group being hit beginning July 1. What was your life like on July 1? Did the enemy strike against you or was it life as usual? I'm curious.
Speaking of curiosities, I was wondering this morning why God chooses to answer some of the requests He does. Example ... I mentioned to Him once, maybe twice, that I wanted to fly First Class when I flew. He consistently makes this happen. Just last Thursday I was booked on a flight that didn't have First Class and it was delayed. Well, the maintenance delay caused a plane swap to a jet with a First Class cabin and I got one of the seats.
Why did He say yes to that request? One that I wasn't even serious enough about to mention in prayer. Someone suggested it's because I had faith for it, but that doesn't seem to fit in this situation. I wouldn't waste a faith bullet on flying First Class because it's not that serious, truth be told. Then it was suggested that I'm His princess and He likes to spoil me. That may be true, but a castle and a prince with lots of money (just being honest) would be good spoiling, too.
I really am curious why He chose to answer that on-the-fly non-essential desire above the many other things I've spent months and years praying for. Do you have any insight? Do you have your own questions about what He picks and what gets left? I invite you to share below.
And I'm not being ungrateful, of course. I love thanking Him for things as I drift off to sleep and then realize I've started praying in tongues as I dream. Yes, dear ones, thanksgiving will take you into one of God's realms. Try it.
I bless your spirit to ask questions of The Lord and to commune until answers are downloaded.

I hope you all realize I hear a super hero soundtrack and onomatopoeias (word sounds like zip, bang, zap!) when I say Myth Buster Bustin' Myths. 😆
Ok, so this is one of the many I've seen lately.
MYTH: The devil trembles when the weakest Christian is on their knees.
TRUTH: James 2:19 and Job 1:6, 2:1. From what I can tell satan is prideful to the very end, was even bold enough to tempt Jesus face-to-face, AND thought he had enough leverage to actually make Yeshua betray The Father.
So, let's unpack the myth. It sounds catchy, as most of our Christian cliches do, but it doesn't really make any sense from a Kingdom perspective.
The only verse in The Written Word about demons - demons, not thee demonic prince, satan himself - trembling tells us they do so because they have revelation of the power and immensity of God (James 2:19). If you're a weak Christian, I have to assume you're a baby who's still drinking milk. You getting on your knees is not going to faze any demon. There are people who pastor churches and good-sized flocks who can't get anything done in prayer because they don't believe it and don't understand it.
If you have enough revelation, understanding, wisdom and earned authority to make the demonic 'tremble,' you won't have to waste time going down on your knees. You could just turn your focus to The Word and they'll discern your countenance changing and leave because they know you're about to unleash The Law against them.
The Word is fire, The Sword of The Spirit and a hammer (scepter) and it thrashes demons when it's wielded by someone who has earned authority (Jeremiah 23:29; Ephesians 6:17). Earned authority is like this: You know how some people declare a scripture and it manifests for them quickly every time? That's earned authority. You know how some folks declare a verse and it manifests some times? That's grace for the moment - a special favor or temporary anointing, etc. When The Word is being released against demons, they're trying to get to Southwest.com (wanna get away).
Now back to the big guy. And by big guy I mean little guy because my GOD is so much BIGGER; just differentiating between satan and his minions. In Job he goes before The Lord boldy. The Logos states, he presented himself to El-ohim along with the other created higher ups. We have to remember that God is the Judge of the Universe and has given His Word not to lay hands on satan again until the next big battle. So satan's not trembling going before The Lord. No, he accuses God of sheltering Job. REMEMBER?!? Folks, he goes in talking much smack - NOT trembling. So where in the world do we get the audacity to say, WE, unfortunately more ignorant regarding The Word than we should be, humans make the devil (oooo, oooo, oooo - those are boogey man sounds, btw) tremble. It's silly.
Now ... you may say I'm just being technical, but how many court cases have been made - for good or bad - by a technicality? Many. But more importantly, this is a part of my spiritual DNA. I'm an RG prophet, manifestation teacher. I want (need in my core) for The BoB (Body of Believers) *who are willing* to eat The Truth so we can obey God by taking dominion, being fruitful and multiplying. And as long as we believe wrong things or partial truths about The Word, we will remain powerless. That's not our inheritance.
And, yes, dear ones ... thinking you're making the devil tremble just by praying is a deception that will cause problems. Believing that is why we don't do more than hold prayer meetings in this current generation of The Church. We claim praying's doing our part so we pray but don't work.
God wasn't joking about taking dominion. I don't know about you, but I'm fed up with all of the unrighteousness I have to live under because The Church refuses to get involved. God's not exactly fed up because He'll just wait us out and keep inviting generations to take up their divine mantles and do what The Word instructs. And what I'm doing about it is attempting to train up children of Christ (myself included) so they can return to The Word. We've def departed from it. Let's pray.
Yeshua, The Word Made Flesh, we repent of departing from Your Word and allowing someone else to feed us their canned milk as food. Father, We ask that You ignite the fire that already exists in our spirits because we come from You and You love The Word. Teach us to read it and chew it and savor it, to not stop there, and to do The Word so we're not deceived. We ask this in Jesus' Name and seal it by Holy Spirit. Amen.

Tattoos are a pretty controversial issue for believers. Not as high-emotion as homosexuality and such, but you can muster up enough opinions to hold a symposium, I'm sure.
I share my thoughts on the subject in the following video. Watch and let me know where you fall on the 'absolutely no to the more the merrier' spectrum.

Blessings, dear ones!
Just a quick reminder that Early Bird pricing for #SY5779 ends June 30, 2018 and the cost will increase $15. Even if you do end up paying the extra, you'll get your money's worth because of the deliverance in store. Being placed on my God-designed life timeline has changed things significantly for me, and it will for you, too.
Let's talk about deception. And I'd love to have you all chime in in the comment section if you feel so inclined.
Deception is a big problem in life. It's easy to be deceived. The Written Word tells us if we know The Word of God but don't live/perform it, we deceive ourselves (James 1:23). There's a ton of self-deception out there right now. Me included.
I know there are things in The Logos that I should be doing in my life right now, but I'm not. Fasting, for example. Yeshua said when we fast, not if. That means it's supposed to be a part of the disciples' lifestyle. I hate fasting, so I don't do it regularly. I do it a couple few times a year. And I haven't done an extended fast - which is seven days for my greedy self - since 2014.
I'm missing out on some potential breakthroughs and revelations because I don't like to fast and don't do it. There are other areas, too, but I know I'm being invited to fast and I keep putting it off so that's why it's at the forefront of my mind. Hearing that Word of God to fast and not fasting leads to self-deception. About what? Not sure immediately, but it's a universal law, so I am under the consequences whether I can identify them or not.
We as people have come to love being deceived. We seem to have adopted the ignorance is bliss ideal and have taken it to new heights. Yeshua told us through Rabbi Shaul this would happen (2 Timothy 3 et. al.).
Take the magazine cover above. We ALL know that's not what Oprah's body looks like, but they put it out there every month and people suck it up as if it's truth. We've come to love deception. Unfortunately. We just expect lies. We expect everything to be airbrushed and sugarcoated and nice and neat.
But that's not the reality of our world. Life is in no way airbrushed, sugarcoated or nice and neat. We're warriors in a constant battle, whether for The Conquering King or the one who's already lost the first major war and will guaranteed lose the second. And the third if another comes when he's released from the pit after 1,000 years (Revelation 20:7).
Now there's some revelation for you! If you ever thought The Bible was the end all, be all, you're mistaken. God didn't tell us everything about eternity future. He only shared up to about 1,000 years into it. We don't necessarily know what's coming after that. And the sad thing about humans is some have the audacity to say there's not more than what's in The Bible. The Bible's a starting point. God is too big to be contained and limited to that little book (John 21:25). That's another form of deception.
I shared with someone who's a fearful flyer last week that I was horribly afraid of flying (and spiders and snakes) until 2011 when God delivered me of unforgiveness. She then asked me to share my 'program' with her.
I don't have a program for learning to live a lifestyle of forgiveness, but I do have a book that will change you from the inside out. If you can pray with sincerity for those who've done humanly unforgivable to you, your deliverance will come. Witness.
Now ... I wrote this book in 30 days, but it took a process of about nine months to fully be delivered from the root of unforgiveness in my soul. That reminds me of someone who bought this book last year after a bad breakup to their marriage intended. They wrote and said they'd read it and asked what should they do next. I replied: that depends on you. Where is your heart towards this person after one reading? Are you able to speak about them without accusation? Are you able to bless them even though it seems they've gotten away with their injustices against you? Even if they never get judged in your lifetime? Are you free from thoughts of them and holding clap back conversations in your head?
As I said (and always share) it took me nine months - the time it takes for God to fully form a baby - to learn to live a life where I don't hold things against people. Patti told me she doesn't know anyone else who forgives the way I do; who just drops offenses and moves on. I hadn't really thought about it like that, but my mind has been renewed so that I know enough about the spiritual realm and have enough of a relationship with The Godhead to change my focus to recovering my goods. And I know that if I'm worried about another person, that slows down my recovery time. Kinda selfish, I suppose, but the alternative is to stay stuck and that ain't happen' cap'n. I don't do stuck very well. Not when I know heaven is solution central and that's my Kingdom of citizenship.
Alright, that's plenty for now. I have posts about blessings, dominion over time, spiritual DNA and a recent demonic attack upcoming. Check back if you'd like. But before you go, let's pray.
Heavenly Father, thank You for revelation, understanding and wisdom. Thank You for discernment. We come to you invoking our voluntary blood-covenant relationships with Yeshua our Messiah, asking You to reveal any and all deception in our lives in the order of Your choosing. We commit to face and partner with You to fix each of these areas by warring with The Truth found in Your Word. We confess and repent of willful deception and for becoming comfortable with deception because it's the way of this world. We cut ties with the world and declare as citizens of heaven we're in it but not of it. We take The Blood of Jesus and cover over our active contracts with the god of deception. We nail those contracts to The Cross and declare they're null and void. We take This powerful Blood and use it to seal every door to deception the enemy had open in our lives including our ear and eye gates. We are separate and set apart from demonic deception and it's devices in Jesus' Name. We hunger for, seek, receive and declare The Truth. Holy Spirit, seal all of this work and make it so in every realm of our existence. Amen.
P.S. Thanks for those who agreed with me a couple weeks ago about visibility. My site traffic had decreased by about 50% because the enemy was up in my biz. But our agreement was effective (of course) and people are receiving the solid food again in proper numbers. Thank you!

The above is a praise report for the trouble I shared about Tuesday. You can click the link or pic to read the post if you're not familiar with the situation. I'd also like to thank and release a blessing - Thank you! I bless you in Yeshua's Name. - to those who agreed with me regarding the land.
Agreement is powerful. It's a principle that always works as long as both parties believe. If it doesn't work, that means there's something off in the spiritual with one of the people who agreed. Fix the issue and the power of agreement will return to whomever's lacking.
Speaking of agreement ... thank you and bless you exceedingly to those who fasted and agreed with me yesterday. I had a good day and hope you did, too. You can share your results with me via email (firstname.lastname@example.org), text or in the comments below. If you message me on FB, please use my page to do so (www.facebook.com/zaribanks).
One of the results of my fast was that I exercised dominion over my time yesterday and today and my authority has been honored spiritually and naturally. Praise The God of Time for teaching me how to work with it!! And speaking of time and learning how to align it and with it, I found a note from 9.23.17 of a vision I had that day. I wrote:
I was worshiping and saw inside myself like an inner clock being aligned.
Please hear this, y'all. God was trying to set my timing right a year before that - in October 2016 - but I was afraid of the immensity of the revelation and didn't receive it. I ran from it. I messed up a lot in my life as a consequence of not flowing with The Lord regarding time. I share much of this in the teachings I've published this year if you're interested in learning more. Then in Building in the Spirit 2017 I threw my hands up in surrender and hit the floor on my knees and The Lord went right to work, healing my timeline like He'd originally planned to do 18 months before.
You know ... I really do love The Lord and want to be a good servant and steward, but I mess up often because I miss what He's trying to do in, with and through me because it's different. Imagine how much further along I'd be if I had have submitted even through the fear of the unknown and followed Him. And I've grown leaps and bounds since March 2017. But I'd be even more mature, more free and more powerful than I am now had I participated when He approached me back then.
Thank God for forgiveness and acceleration. So I say to you reading this: Go forward with The Lord. If you really do move with Him, you're gonna find yourself face to face to with revelation that you may not have heard anyone else teach on before. And you'll make mistakes along the way. That's ok. He has a plan for each one. But don't opt out of pursuing what He offers because of fear of the unknown. I mean, seriously ... God knows more than will ever be 'discovered' or revealed to humans throughout all of man's existence, so it shouldn't surprise or intimidate us when He takes us in new directions (Isaiah 43:19).
I submit to you that if you've never been presented with something you've never heard before from God, that you're not flowing with Him the way you think you are. God has enough information to give every human who ever lived/lives a fresh bit of revelation that no one else has ever even considered. Go get yours. I challenge you.
I was still reading 2 Chronicles 20 - one of my faves - this morning on the plane and had some cool things pointed out to me which led to asking Holy Spirit some questions. These are things you might want to ask Him at some time, too:
I'm gonna stop here. I'll share the nuggets extracted from 2 Chronicles in my next post. You might want to read the first part about that chapter in the mean time.
Thank you for the conference registrations, purchases, seeds, prayer and agreement. I'm honored that you have faith in me enough to go through this life journey with me in so many ways. I bless you in Jesus' Name.
Oh, yeah, I'm going to another deliverance ministry training this weekend. Supes excited. I returned from the one in February chasing the demonic and they were doing everything they could to get away from me. It's gonna be worser for them after this one. 😎
Keep in touch. Love y'all.
