This is my Nana. She's got 88 years of service on the earth. The enemy's currently messing with her brain and I'm not really for that. I guess they weren't expecting me to hop on a plane at 5:50am, minister to her spirit and then hop back on at 6:32pm to return home. I'll do it again, too. When I see demonic theft, the fighter in me awakens. Those who intercede for/with me, please release a verbal agreement that she be continually strengthened in mind, body, soul and spirit with all the strength God's Spirit gives. Thanks!
I had a really cool dream earlier this week about three planes. But I'm gonna share some other things before I get into that.
First, the spirit of suicide visited me Tuesday afternoon - during the 2 o'clock hour, I believe. What had happened was … I was entertaining thoughts of despair. That says a mouthful already. But my mind (thoughts) moves so quickly, the spirit of depression doesn’t have much effect on me anymore. Because prophets are prone to depression I’ve learned not to allow my mind to sit on those kinda thoughts for long periods. I already have a Biblical principle that works and overcomes the enemy so my brain automatically kicks it into play. That stinker tried to pop in as fast as he could in an attempt to get a foothold. I listened to his rant (reasons I should just end it and be free) for about three seconds. This is one of those Matrix three seconds ‘cause the spiritual realm doesn’t have time like our dimension, and he was able to get off 2-3 sentences in that amount of time.
I was already transitioning from negative thoughts to Kingdom authority so I didn't even have to directly address the demon, he just left because I paid him no mind. I'm sharing this with you because that's new for me and to encourage you. Demons understand authority, and if you truly have Kingdom authority, you don't have to do a lotta hoopin' and hollin' for low-level demons because they can read you in the spiritual realm. They don't want to get punished so they'll leave on their own, like this itty bitty did, or with a quick legal reminder.
Oh, yeah, I passed 70 hours of tongues, too. That's probably why I had the Three Planes dream.
One more thing before I get to the dream. I was up praying this morning sometime before 3 a.m. and The Lord gave me some wisdom for Zayne. When I received the message it was an eloquent, little statement. I've forgotten the exact words but I have the gist and I'm sharing it for those of you who have children you're raising to honor God.
Don't get in the habit or practice of allowing others to convince you to do things. The enemy sees that agreement and writes a contract in the spiritual realm.
Actions and decisions have consequences - natural and spiritual - and the spiritual consequences are multiplied. Think before you act, and think about what you're thinking.
And this led me to pray:
Lord, don't let him re-empower any demonic stronghold or curse I've already fought to break.
Finally to the dream. A few nights ago I couldn't sleep so I was thanking God for my Psalm 139:16 timeline and book in heaven and for helping me to discover what's ordained for me. Then I dreamed the following:
I was in a small airplane. Not Cessna small, more like a Canadair Regional Jet (seats 50 or fewer). There were a few others in the plane, too, and it began to crash into the side of a mountain area that was absolutely beautiful, had a waterfall and a pinky-gold hue like the scenes when they're with the elves in LOTR FOTR - Rivendell. I said, "Oh, no ... we're gonna crash. Lord, are we gonna crash?" And we crashed. There was no blood or guts, it just crashed and switched to being inside the airport waiting for another plane. While in the airport I was looking for food (of course) and met the singers Ginuwine and Kelly Rowland (her, I have met IRL earlier in 2018).
Now a different group of people were with me and we were in a bigger plane. That one crashed, too. Not into a mountain, just on land, and again, there was no blood, guts or major panic. For the second time we were in the airport again waiting for another plane to take us to our destination. This time I met President Donald J. Trump, and I had a boyfriend with me.
We get on the third plane and it's huge (like a freighter) and had a stand-up observation cab in the back of the plane where the lavatories actually are. This time the group of people with me included family members. Before the plane took off I prayed and blessed it and it took off, soared and we were on our way.
Planes represent ministry or career and these different planes represent different seasons/cycles in my life; airports represent transition. The first small plane was my 8 years in public ed (2001-2009). That crashed into something wonderful because even though I was laid off, I went into business, ministry and homeschooled and The Lord sustained me.
The second and bigger plane were the foundational years of my maturing and ministry - the beautiful mess that God crafted with me from 2010-2017. The second crash wasn't as glamorous, though, because I'm no longer a (spiritual) child. It was a hard drop on land after success (flying high) with The Spirit because I needed an abrupt wake-up call (slap in the face if we're being honest, and we are) to suit up as a Kingdom Warrior and serve The King.
The last, big-big plane is the current cycle that I'm in. I took off and am flying high in safety because of the hours I've invested in The Kingdom praying in tongues and being matured in spirit so that I'm gaining the authority needed to establish this new business and ministry He's entrusted to me. And this time I have favor with family members who have faith in me coming alongside me that didn't in seasons past. That's fantastic on so many levels.
I give God praise, honor and glory for this new start to this new season, and I'm moving forward with legitimate earned authority and faith to live a life that proves He is Who He says He is. Ha'shem Yeshua!
P.S. As always I welcome your comments below. Blessings!
P.P.S. I just looked at my ordination certificate and giggled because of a convo I had with Sharon afterward. She asked how was it [to be ordained] and I answered I'm not doing anything differently than before. She answered:
"Now you can bury 'em and marry 'em ... and charge. That's different." 🤣😂🤣

Since having my timeline healed I have a ton of testimonies of the favor that's been released on my life. That's what happens when you remove a curse - favor is released on that area, and the demonic attacks decrease significantly. I'm wise enough now to say they decrease, not stop, because the enemy will always try to get us even if they have to do it illegally.
And speaking of illegal attacks, the enemy hit an area that's no longer under a curse on March 28, 2018 and God smacked them in less than six hours and I got paid back big. I like this new level of freedom.
Another testimony is related to the license plate above. When my timeline got healed, that freed up some other deliverance I needed, too. Last week I was running around doing stuff for my business and in preparation for the #SY5779 conference. I was getting nowhere because of red tape (paperwork). I left one place after being there about an hour feeling defeated and wondering if I should just let this plan go; while driving this was the plate in front of me - 588 ZBI!
Five is the number of grace (positive) and man's work (positive but often negative); eight is the number of new beginnings and being set apart unto The Lord - eighty-eight is double new beginning. Of course, ZBI is the acronym for my businesses, so when I saw this I pulled myself to attention and turned my focus to God. I prayed for favor and then made a couple more stops - one fruitful, one not. The third stop was not only fruitful, but the favor of God exploded and the upfront money everyone else asked for was waived this time!!
I got what I needed without someone else telling me how much of my and God's money they would receive. That's huge because one way the enemy steals when a financial curses exists is using demonically charged organizations, laws and processes to move money from people into their structures. FYI: That's what taxes are - someone else or some organization believing they have the right to the money you make, and it's demonic, not godly. Believers in the U.S. need to return to Biblical voting like they did back when folks first came over to this land.
Anyhoo, if you believe you should be further along in life than you currently are, you probably need your life timeline healed. We're going to facilitate deep, intimate deliverance sessions at this year's conference and position those who are behind in life, on the path of where God wants to them to be.
If you've been praying for marriage for years and years (seven for me) and can't understand why it hasn't happened for you, yet, you probably need your timeline healed. If you've had great success in business and had it all fall apart after a few years for no good reason, you probably need your timeline healed. If you've been praying for your unsaved loved ones for years and haven't seen any movement in the demonic's hold, you probably need your timeline healed. And we're gonna provide personal ministry for the first 20 people who register.
You need your timeline healed so you can live your destiny and possess your birthright, but God needs your timeline healed so that He can get the return on investment He hoped for when He imagined and wrote out your time on earth (Psalm 139:16). Register today.
P.S. Patti and I have broken past the warfare we were in and are now collecting spoils. She and I will be ministering as a team to #SY5779 attendees. 💥💥💥

The enemy's been stealing from me and I've had enough. So, shortly after midnight Friday morning I prayed for help. Well, to be honest, I yelled at God for allowing me to still be under a financial curse as an extravagant giver, and then asked for help. I know most of y'all are too holy to admit you yell at El-ohim, but I do (no, not bragging about it, just being honest about my brattiness). And the cray thing is that when I get so frustrated that I'm fussing at Him ... He shows up to do something. Am I telling you to yell? No. You live out your relationship with The Godhead and I'll live out mine. In our relationship, there's yelling ... on my end. 😬
Friday afternoon I had a business call scheduled to see about purchasing a service that would help me help my clients. Before the call, I was mulling over who I could pray with that had time first of all, and authority secondly, to address this constant demonic theft. I wondered aloud if we'd have time to pray during the business call, but I knew we wouldn't because I had another appointment right after.
But, God works things together that fit His divine timing and plans for me, and when we got on the phone for the sales pitch, the seller said we'd just pray instead. How 'bout that?! The Lord created an open window for deliverance work on facing off the enemy because I'd asked and because He was in agreement. Awesome.
We prayed, warred, thanked and hung up and went about the rest of the day uplifted. Well, Friday night, without my knowing, the enemy stole from me right in front of my eyes and I didn't see it. I go in stealth sometimes to do work for The Lord so I know invisibility works for and against us, but this time the enemy did it to me. I got notified Saturday morning. So, they either retaliated against me for our warfare that expelled them and crushed their plans of attack OR our prayer didn't work and they decided to steal to prove they continue to have the right to do so. Time will tell - it takes more than one occurrence to be anything significant.
I do have a praise report, though. I needed to purchase some event tickets for this week and was waiting for my credit card payment to post so I could. It was taking forever and I was praying that the tickets would remain available, at the seats I wanted to give (as requested by the receiver) and for discounts. Well, God favored me in this area because while I had to wait for the payment to post better seats at a lower price became available and I had time to find, not one, but two discount codes to use on the purchase, and I got bonus airline miles to boot! Again, this could be the beginning of freedom from that curse of demonic theft, BUT it takes more than one happening to make a pattern. Two times is great, but five instances of favor is even better.
And another thing about this favor ... while I was waiting for my payment to post, I was about to do something else to make the tickets happen, and if I'd done that something else, I would've paid more for lesser seats. God ordained the angel(s) who alter circumstances to move things around so that I could receive favor. Just two weeks ago, God was trying to do that for me, and I pushed and pushed and pushed and did the something else and ended up losing a bit of money, a lot of time and causing myself and others much stress because I didn't realize He was ordering things for me in favor.

Dad: Do you wanna do this, Z?
Me: Nope ... I'll NEVER do that.
About a year later
Dad: Do you wanna do this, Z?
Another year later (2016)
Dad: You wanna do it now?
Me: Uh, unh ... and quit asking me.
Me: WHAT IN THE #$&* ARE YOU DOING?!
Dad: You wanna do this, Z?
Z: Do I have a choice at this point?
Me: Doing it.
He asks nicely, but it's a setup. If you don't do it, and He needs you to do it, and you've told Him you'll obey anything, you've gotta do it or get spanked.
It is written: For The LORD disciplines those He loves; and He punishes each ones He accepts as His child. ~ Hebrews 12:6
