Have you ever stopped to consider all of the circumstances God orchestrates so that we get where and what we need?
I've been really thinking about this lately because of how God's working out some things in my life. Patti and I have actually been texting these things back and forth over the past couple weeks. You know ... rehearsing testimonies.
Let me just tell you upfront that I overthink. That being stated, if you get bored and wanna ditch this post at any time, you're welcome to do so. I won't take it personally. However, I suspect those who read it through will begin to pay more attention to how God unfolds their timelines going forward. Let's get started.
My sweetheart called me in August - 17 months and five days after we broke up and four years to the day of from the first time he called me. I know enough about God to know neither of those things is a coincidence. First, the numbers matter: 17 is the number of victory, five represents grace and four represents things established by God.
Him calling me was a victory (17); actually a reward for learning to stop throwing temper tantrums when I don't get my way. God doesn't like the tantrums, he doesn't like the tantrums and they weren't/aren't helping me get what I want anyway. They just made me look cray.
And I definitely got a major dose of God's Grace (5) showered on me through his forgiveness because initially he didn't want to speak to me at all after I acted a fool last March. Side note: March is one of three months God ordained to be exceedingly blessed in my life each year, and the enemy knew this and worked overtime to curse that month. They've been winning the March battle. No more, though, I cleansed and sanctified it so March 2019 will be the start of God's big blessings coming through for me as they should. I'm excited.
And then the four as established by God. We courted three years (two years, 7 months to be exact), broke up for the 17 months, five days - and he came back from the dead as Patti Cake says - four years to the day. That was God confirming that He was all over this union because the whole time we were broken up I prayed God would completely wipe him from my mind, soul and spirit memories. Didn't happen, bt dubbs, which I couldn't understand 'cause God has removed men before lickety-split with no questions asked. I needed to know God was in it because the enemy came immediately to steal my joy of Sweetheart's return by whispering the lie that he only came back to hurt me in retaliation.
Two days before he called me was the first major test I passed without throwing a temper tantrum when I normally would have. Matter of fact, I threw a tantrum March 5, 2018 because I didn't get my way and we broke up March 5, 2017 because of my tantrum when I wasn't getting my way. Shame. It's embarrassing to have to write this, y'all. That day was cursed. I'm not sure if I allowed the curse to come in 2017 or if it existed already. March has been historically bad for me, as I already shared, because God had planned to bless me that month, but the enemy wasn't allowing it. That's over now thanks to my cleansing of time. I am supes ready for March 2019 ... I even have some days in the month already highlighted because God said to expect gifts from Him. Also, there's a post on this page somewhere about cleansing March 5 that I tried to find and couldn't. Sorry. You can look for it if you're interested or get my upcoming book, Sanctifying Time.
One day before he called, Patti challenged me to bless him instead of asking God to remove him because clearly God was NOT going to wipe my memory of him. I have a teaching on The Law of Blessing that I need to get out. It's powerful. The teaching is what Patti was referencing. She said to me I should bless him and see what happens because of all the good results I'd been getting from using the principles. I did it and got positive and miraculous results AGAIN.
Now to my point - thinking over all the man (and by man I mean angel) hours and power God had to enlist to get this relationship back on track. I was praying, fasting and getting delivered. I have no idea what Sweetheart was doing besides working *rolling my eyes.* God had to send an angel to nudge him to call me. And I wonder how many nudges the angel had to nudge before he finally picked up the phone. I can imagine God instructing the angel(s) assigned, "He has to call her on August _. Direct him." God doesn't have to repeat Himself to the angels or add a statement of importance. If they're being sent, the expectation is fulfillment.
There was an angel assigned to Patti so she could deliver wisdom to me. There were angels, and possibly some demons, assigned to cause me problems that provided opportunities for temper tantrums which I had to overcome.
And even before all of these August 2018 events God had to move me to Seattle last year by having me apply for a part-time job while in a depressed stupor. I didn't even remember applying for the job, didn't understand the duties, can't tell you where I found it or how I got hired other than God's supernatural maneuvering. Oh, I do know Sweetheart was praying that I'd move there. He asked me for three years, and I kept saying no. Didn't realize God was in it; and I was also being stubborn and wanting my way. And didn't realize that I couldn't marry him if I didn't move. As intelligent as I am, sometimes I'm just dumb. Thank God He helps me.
God also had me enroll in a year's deliverance ministry training that led to my timeline getting healed and me learning to heal land. Two of four sessions were in Seattle, too. That's no coincidence. Think about all this. And, of course, this is only a snapshot of all that's happened in the last four years. God and heaven were busy getting us to this point in time and this level of spiritual maturity. Especially with me on the loose with free will. Good grief. God probably has to assign two or three angels to me when He'd usually only assign one.
So many things. Little things that are leading up to something huge. Exciting. God is totally invested in me and my destiny and it's awesome to be a part of. I do wish I didn't mess so many things up, but I'm thankful for heaven's resources and role in my future. There's a lot of good in store or God wouldn't go through so much to work it out. That's encouraging. Let's praise Him:
I praise You for all the supernatural maneuvering that's brought me to this place on my timeline, Elohim. Thank You for investing in me and writing me into Your Kingdom plans. I bless You for all of the angels assigned to help me, and the demons I'm forced to face off and exercise authority over. I praise You for maturing me and for redeeming everything I mess up. I love You, Lord. Amen.
I bless you in Yeshua's Name and pray you're walking out your Original Design.

I asked this question earlier today. But my spirit immediately answered, "No ... He doesn't hate you, and you know it."
But I totes get how it can seem like it sometimes. I get it. I'm doing everything I know to do to successfully maneuver transition in every area of my life, and nothing's working right, yet. I'm praying, fasting, speaking faith, reading my Bible and still feel like I've been thrown in the deep end of the pool without knowing how to swim.
The absolute truth is God doesn't hate me or you. He may not like you too much, depending where you fit on His spectrum of believing in Yeshua to blaspheming Holy Spirit, etc. But He doesn't hate you. There are some things revealed in The Logos that God hates - Proverbs has several lists of seven, but there are other places as well - so you can read up and see if you're any of those. If you are ... you might wanna change it up. Just a suggestion.
I know God loves me big. He actually used me as an example for someone learning to spend quality time with Him. That was pretty cool. I didn't appreciate it when it was shared with me because I was irritated at the time with my seemingly never-ending transitions. But you know how God is: He sends encouragement when it's needed; it's up to us to receive it and allow it soak into our spirits.
Loving me big is part of the reason God pushes me out of every nest I try to get comfortable in. He seems to think there's greater potential in me than even I know about, and He's not content to allow me any rest in my comfort zone. I just asked a friend if he remembered how I used to be happy not to leave the house for days at time, and now I'm always on the go.
Here's some of my known and expressed potential - at which I'm happy to stop, btw. I'm an author, an entrepreneur who owns several businesses, a baker at a family-owned bakery and a deliverance minister who cleanses land and time and pulls demons out of people's backs. And God keeps pushing me for more.
I told Patti Cake I need some stability in my life. I need at least one area where God has ruled in my favor and said to the enemy, "You can no longer touch this part of Zari's life." Right now it feels like everything's up in the air.
When I do get my next victory, though ... you talk about a testimony. The enemy's gonna be so sad they even uttered the first sound of the first syllable of my name. Please agree verbally with this prayer:
Lord, I trust You completely. You moved me to the most-expensive area in my state after I spent three years saying I'd NEVER move there. You planted me there for a reason, and I trust You to sustain me. You're The God Who Provides. I trust You. Amen.
I bless you in Yeshua's Name. 💜
From Home - finally, after one cancelled flight, sleeping in the cold car, not being able to get a flight and a 4-hour drive. God, help.

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.

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.

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. 💥💥💥
