Holy, holy, holy is The Lord God Almighty, Who was, is and is to come!
That's my favorite psalm, song and sentence of worship these days. I was out walking last night and saying it over and over, lifting up a wave offering and allowing my spirit to freely commune with The Godhead and the revelation began to flow. I'll share more about that another time. 😊
We've had two sessions of this season's breaking generational curses workshop. I've gotten great deliverance both times. I received an email yesterday from Session II that said, they got free from a 30-year issue last week. Praise God!
The firstfruit session is up for downloading if you're interested in this process. The Lord showed me how to make progress in deliverance because those videos on YT of mass deliverance weren't doing anything for me. And if you've been with me any length of time, you know I do NOT stop until I get some answers for my issues - no matter how long it takes; even if I have to stop and focus on other things for a while, I eventually pick up that issue again so I can be free. I'm not a quitter ... I'm a rester. 😂
So, in Session II, I asked what The Lord wanted me to work on and He came back with fear. GULP. I was actually struggling with fear at that moment (been under several weeks of attack; months first and then the focus of the attacks changed in the last few weeks - it's been rough) and how dare He call me on it. Anyhoo, The Spirit said 12, 13, 14, 30th generations and, of course, me, and demanded I deal with it.
SN: Something I've learned about The Father - one of the things - in this season, is that while Holy Spirit is a gentleman and doesn't force, God The Father, The Supreme Ruler and Lawgiver of The Universe, The Righteous Judge, gives commands, demands and judgments without hesitation. So you do it. He knows Who He is and what all He owns and He doesn't have to be pc; He can and does absolutely boss you around. Like a boss. In the past I've said God doesn't force you to act, it's always a choice. Yes, it is your choice to obey, but when He says, "Deal with it," you feel the this-is-not-an-option-or-suggestion anointing and you move. Most of the time.
I addressed the curse of fear and while I did, I admitted that I wasn't even sure I was confessing wholeheartedly because I was currently being threatened on several sides by humans, some hidden, who technically could cause me harm. Well, let me tell you within two days revelation came of who was harassing me behind the scenes, and I started praying for them, of course. The second day I prayed for them, The Lord broke me through with authority, and I'll share more about that another time.
I pray you're getting deep deliverance that's tailored to your family line and not stuck without movement because someone's trying to deliver you from their own experience instead of your trouble areas.
This season of deliverance like I've never experienced (obvi) and didn't even know was needed or possible has been a serious roller coaster ride. Up and down and all around. That was the title of my first blog - The Roller Coaster: Up and Down and All Around (on Tumblr).
Perhaps I was prophesying and didn't realize it 'cause I'm back on this roller coaster again, and this week I heard myself asking the following:
Have you ever asked any of these questions about your life or is everything laid out and working out normally for you?
I see these 'normal' people who've married young and who are just going about life and I wonder what they do when crisis hits. I've had/have all these problems, so I have strategies in my toolbox for crisis situations. Do they? Or do they just have such normal lives that crises don't happen to them? And I also wonder are they not seeking personal growth? A good portion of my problems are the result of me wanting to grow professionally, spiritually and personally.
Why can't I just settle into a normal life and not need more? Any insights?
Happy & Blessed 2018, dear ones!
I took my first fruit flight and all went well. I dedicated my travels for this year to The King and Kingdom, blessed the Bombardier Q400 I was on and rejoiced at ways The Lord showed up.
First of all, the flight was overbooked the night before which is never good for someone, and that someone is sometimes me and was me December 30th - two flights in a row. I headed to the airport at 5:15a anyway loosing angels to go before me and asking The Father to make a way where there seemed to be no way. But I also told him, "Lord, if you don't want to, that's fine. I have to stop expecting You to deliver me out of everything I get into and giving me everything I want."
That's big growth, bt dubbs. I've been sharing how He's been maturing me here and there - some on the Prophecy blog and a bit on Zari Banks, mostly with those I'm mentoring and/or praying with because I've invited them along on the journey to deep deliverance.
Got to the airport, on time ... not too early, not too late ... time to go to the Alaska Lounge for a light breakfast and then down to the gate. Got on flight 2206, seat 7E, door 7. I thanked The Lord as I walked to the plane and smiled at my seat and door - 77. Holy Spirit's been requesting my attention using 77 since late October.
As often happens when flying between the two cities I reside in, the pilot announced there'd be turbulence because of the weather - clouds, rain and wind. As I've grown accustomed to when flying, I put on anointing oil, covered the plane, crew and passengers with The Blood of Yeshua, loosed The Hosts of Heaven to go before us and clear a pathway through the sky for a safe and event-free flight and put on my headphones to rest for 30 minutes.
God has graced me with authority and angels over the air when I'm flying. Not sure why He has, but I appreciate it because I used to be a nervousy flyer. Years ago I was terrified at takeoff, landing and at any bump or noise in between. I got delivered from unforgiveness in 2012 and the fear of flying, snakes and (most) spiders - still don't like to be startled - was defeated. Perhaps He did so because He's the one who asked me to travel. Maybe because He knows my history and knew that I started traveling regularly in 2017 begrudgingly. I have come to love traveling, but the grace, authority and angels are still available to me and I'm thankful to Him for that favor.
In my past immaturity, I thought I would be able take this anointing for safe flying and release it to you to receive by faith. I know now that's not always how God works things for us. He hasn't given me any instruction to release this grace to anyone else, and as I said above I don't know what's required to qualify for it. Maybe I'll ask Him sometime this year, and let you know what I learn - got a ton going on right now so don't have a time frame. It's a grace that He released at His volition, which I never requested, expected or knew was a possibility. What I do know about Yahweh is that you can ask Him for anything. You may not get it, but you can sure ask without fear or hesitation ... and ask in faith.
What I can do is bless you.
I bless you and your year 2018. I bless your travels and cities. I pray you hunger for deep deliverance and grow in intimacy with The Godhead. I declare this all by faith in Yeshua and seal it by Holy Spirit.
Registration for Breaking Generational Curses Closes January 12, 2018.
I was watching a tv show the other night and a group of Native American women were conducting a sweat to call back the spirit of a young woman who'd been raped. Calling back portions of the soul that have been traumatized or dispersed is a regular deliverance practice, but we believers rarely minister to our spirits, and that's a problem.
Because we don't minister to our spirits, our spirits are highly immature and, therefore, we produce many carnal believers. Carnal believers are those who sow to the flesh instead of the spirit, and we are quite carnal because we haven't been focusing on growing up our spirits.
That may seem harsh, but I'm just repeating to you all what The Lord spoke to me during my 61 days of prayer this year (Nov. 1-Dec 31, 2017). He told me point blank with no kinda sugar coating that there were many times I couldn't defeat the demonic in my life because I was operating from the soul instead of the spirit. I wasn't overtly sinning, but I was doing what I believed was right in my own understanding and we all know what God says about that - Proverbs 14:12. One example, is trying to keep peace with a person for years, when God had actually intended for me to make war to get free from them. Keeping the peace between relatives seems godly, right? Yes, except for the times God wants you to suit up for battle.
I'm sure everyone wants to immediately exclude themselves from being soulish, but as my spirit has matured during this deliverance season, it's easier to identify soulish actions than ever before. This is one of the reasons I've been quiet. Growing my spirit has given me greater vision into the spiritual realm and I've learned what a dangerous place it is. It's dangerous because people, our fellow believers in Yeshua a lot of the time, don't understand how it operates and loose more curses against each other than satanists do (Romans 7:15-20). I've heard it said that those in covenant with darkness have greater insight into the spiritual realm than most Christians, and unfortunately it's true.
We're the ones who are suffering. I cried to God asking why The Power of God wasn't being demonstrated in my life and in my nation on a large scale and He began to show me. We have no power because we're spiritually immature. Power and its manifestations come from God's Glory and His Glory takes up residence in a spirit as it matures (John 4:24).
Argue with this wisdom all you like, but the fact is that if you don't have power manifestations of God in your life, church, ministry, state and/or nation it's because there are no spiritually mature believers representing The Kingdom of God in that arena. The measuring stick is Yeshua's life and those of The New Testament believers. If you have those types of power plays happening, you've got a mature spirit. If you don't, you need to grow up.
I'm being grown up in spirit right now, and it hurts ... but I'll have power manifestations in the future or at least greater personal freedom than ever before 'cause this doesn't seem to be a journey many others want to join me on.
I bless you in The Name and authority of Yeshua, The Messiah.

GOD's faithfulness is amazing! He takes such excellent care of me and my concerns. I would've been in jail and worser ... BUT GOD!!
