The Lord took me on a Revelation Trail (RT) tonight that was essential to some deliverance I'm chasing these days. And I believe it's because of the work I've done the last two days sanctifying time. If you're not familiar with RTs you can learn about them in my book, O Lord, Increase My Faith. First, He dropped some revelation on me that had me all excited and ready to cartwheel. Then I started asking questions. Then I asked the right questions and ended up thanking Him profusely that I'm no longer spirit sick (Proverbs 18:14) about not being married and that's why I'm here tonight writing to you instead of going to bed like I'd planned.
There are many single women out there who are spirit sick over not being married. First, I'm sorry for those of you who are in that condition. Honestly sorry. I was there. But now I'm not and I'm having a ball doing fun things with The Lord in the meantime. And, I'm not saying just get closer to God and then He'll take that pain away. Not at all. I got DELIVERED, and that's why I don't have that pain anymore. He healed my life timeline first and then evicted a spirit husband who was causing all kinda probs for me. Yes, I'm talking about deliverance from demonic occupation, not just Holy Spirit releasing revelation. The testimony for part of those deliverances can be accessed by clicking the pic above.
When I was sharing this RT with Patti she recognized it as an opportunity for faith building. The Lord works in us as opposites. Three things come to mind - obedience, justice, priorities - about us that are totally different in our relationships with The Godhead, but that's why we make such a great ministry team. She and I will be ministering together to attendees of #SY5779. It's gonna be so good. I'm excited.
Anyhoo ... I'd love to share this Revelation Trail with you, but I have to wait for some markers first. Markers meaning results. I need to have some measurable, verifiable evidences that this revelation matters before I throw it out there because right now it's just what if, so and what else. Lots of potential here if this is really a God path. And if it's not ... it's better that I didn't wet your appetites.
Although, as I said before, Patti thinks it's viable. Maybe I should expect a harvest from this new insight. Even if it doesn't take me where I think it will, Holy Spirit can do exceeding abundantly above. Sixty hours of tongues. And counting.
Register for my upcoming events if you're interested in a spiritual growth spurt.
P.S. and Side Note: As I finish this I'm smelling baby formula - that's a very distinct smell. There's no reason I should be. At all. Please release a verbal agreement that I hear properly what that represents. And if you have any revelation, you can always share it with me. Blessings!

Before I get into what I'm gonna get into let me announce this upcoming teaching.
PRINCIPLES vs. STRATEGIES - May 23, 2018: Principles and strategies aren't the same thing and believing wrongly about them is often what keeps us stuck.
In this teaching I'm going to give deliverance ministers and those who are trying to break through in an area that won't budge revelation on how to move forward and gain success in those tough places that have been lying and declaring, "This is way things are always gonna be, and you can't do a thing about it."
Register here or by clicking the pic above.
I've been toying with the idea of this teaching for a little while because of the prayer requests I receive. And by toying with the idea I mean God has been offering me the assignment, but I've been rejecting it. Just today I received two prayer requests (I received several today but two specifically) in which the pray-er wasn't getting movement toward victory because they were trying to use a strategy that wasn't gonna work for their need. That was the last nudge I needed to go ahead and get this in the works.
Now for some deliverance reporting of my own. In March I shared how I anointed and prayed over my mom head to toe because the enemy was devouring her body and finances through sickness and she got healed. Well, yesterday I got the report that a medical bill she received was waived by the doctor. I took communion and prayed over it and it kept going down from $4000 to $1500 to $300 and now it's PIF! Glory to Yahweh Yireh, The God Who Provides and answers prayers prayed in faith! I'm enjoying this season of harvest; where every time I come home she has evidence of God's movement in her deliverance journey.
Think about this testimony when you're praying for others and getting them saved: God healed her body and relieved pain which caused a faith boost that paved the way for some financial deliverance. That's a great salvation model. Heal the sick and then lead them to Yeshua for more. Then send them out to do the same. It's a win-win.
Here's another good report. I got some deliverance last Friday morning after having spent two days honoring a request from The Lord and praying. It came in the form of a going potty dream. Which isn't classy conversation per se, but that's one way Holy Spirit shows us that we've eliminated some waste in our lives. And that's what important to me: that I'm getting better, stronger and gaining greater authority to crush the enemy under my feet which is what we're called to do (Romans 16:20).
I'm not sure what the deliverance area is, though. I haven't had time to stop and ask Him questions about it, but I agree with it and receive it in full and ask that He open my book and release the treasures owed to me as a result of that new freedom. Yes and amen!
Today was a day alternating rest and prayer. I started addressing one of the occult situations I mentioned last week. Please continue to release verbal agreement that I receive the light needed to bring this family to freedom. Our agreement so far has been successful because when I needed to release revelation for the situation earlier, it flowed easily. Thank you and keep it up.
This was the perfect day to be at home praying, too. Which God knew well in advance; it was a big need day - from the why questions to death and everything in between. Please release verbal agreement that I be strengthened by God's strength to intercede long and effectively for those He's placed in my knowledge who are in need, and that my spirit is alert to His voice and that my soul is quiet and submitted, unable to make me lazy or tired or unwilling to pray. Thanks.
BT Dubbs ... I've got 54 hours of tongues in since March 29. I'm still going strong and I have so much positive movement in life that I don't know how to share it all. I'm like a kid in a candy store. The Lord's enjoying it, too.
One last thing (we hope, right? 😂) - and let me place a disclaimer here:
This will only have meaning for those who understand redemptive gifts (RGI).
My Teacher, Mercy and Prophet intro'd themselves to me this morning! Imagine this - Teacher comes up like a young child telling how great she is and Mercy was the younger sibling, not wanting to be outdone and interjecting his strengths here and there. Seriously, imagine him jumping up and down and saying me, too ... I can do that, too! Teacher was clearly in charge. Then Prophet comes up behind the two as a 4-year older sibling or mother, totally dignified and (I truly hope not) proud as if saying, "Excuse these children, they're immature and don't know protocols." Ha! Totes awesome.
Haven't heard a word from Ruler, Exhorter, Giver or Servant.
I emailed Arthur before I even got outta bed this morning to share. I'm becoming dangerous to the dark side. * insert evil (but not really) laugh*
I bless you, I bless you, I bless you with the desire to become all God created you to be and to continue to learn about and from Him. Ha'Shem Yeshua!
Back to my prayer list.

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. 💥💥💥
© Copyright Zari Banks, Inc. 2018
Ok, so ... I shared on ZM7A about the warfare I'm in right now and it's getting cra-zy.
Recently I had another believer say to me what these strong men I've been fighting keep saying to me which was basically: We want everything you have and we're gonna keep taking it from you as long as you're stupid enough to allow it. Dude.
The enemy uses us like it ain't nothing. Seriously. Here are some examples in addition to the one above.
First, I went bonkers giving last year. Patti Cake told me the other day that I give more percentage wise of my income than anyone else she knows. But, when the enemy started stealing from me I was forced to take my giving to The Lord for some analysis. Well, I had to confess and repent for some of my giving, because it wasn't a part of God's plan for my stewardship.
I had the desire to give because I'm a giver, but it wasn't The Lord leading the giving. And when that happens, I get some harvest, but not great harvest because I told God my money was His to direct and broke that covenant which opened me up to demonic devouring aka a curse. Whoo! Take a breath. You can learn all about that in Cursed with a Cursed: Finances.
Another common example is saying the mean things we're thinking and/or allowing the enemy to whisper to us and then adding, 'I'm just sayin'' or 'That's just me' to end of it as if that covers the sin. Wrong. The only things that cover sin are The Dam Yeshua which was shed in seven places, His death and His resurrection when appropriated in faith and authority.
Back to the warfare. So, we're fasting and praying - I had 90 mins in tongues done by 2 a.m. this morning and a total of 15+ hours over the last 7 days. I'm telling you it's serious. But the magnificent thing is, The Lord is showing up. He's showing up with mostly revelation right now, but the big breakthrough has to follow. And the revelation is good. He's showing a lot of where I've messed up and as a result shook hands with the enemy - ie. the unauthorized giving.
I know in the past I've said I only do what God tells me to do, but when I'm in intimate conversation with Him and He's removed earthly veils it's so easy to see how often I do what I do without consulting The Lord. This is true for all of us. We see in part, prophesy in part, have our own agendas and are self-focused not God-focused most of the time. God is demanding and high maintenance so we have to admit we're not Jesus or even close, and we still live for ourselves primarily. Which is just human nature, and human nature is hard to fight.
My mentor says people will always cause more problems in our lives than any demons, and it's true. I prefer small groups and safety but for whatever reason, God's long-term plan continually pushes me out in front of groups to get rubbed, bruised and matured. I keep reminding myself that not one of my issues - internal or external - fazes God because He's a master problem solver and heaven is solution central. Just gotta keep seeking.
That'll do it for now. Check back for updates on this warfare if you're interested. I know I'm making headway when the demons start hiding behind and throwing people under the bus. Yes and amen!
It is written: And they overcame him by The Blood of The Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
It is written: Many are the afflictions of the righteous; but The Lord delivers them out of them all.
I bless you to seek deep deliverance, uncover your destiny and possess your birthright in Yeshua's Name!
My mother's not walking with a cane. This is huge.
And she's not taking pain killers like I eat gummy bears any longer. Speaking of gummy bears, I'm a connoisseur and I've discovered Target's Marketplace Pantry brand is quite delicious. I was surprised. Pleasantly surprised.
Back to the lecture at hand ... perfection is perfected - sorry, got distracted again. When I was with her at the end of February, I saw the enemy devouring and ravaging her body. And she had doctor appointments several times that week, which devours her finances. She was bent over, barely moving, groaning in pain and couldn't sleep. It irritated me beyond all get out. I don't care what kind of sin has taken place or if there is a lack of faith for healing or anything else on her part, I had enough wisdom and authority to do something - so I did.
First, I went to The Lord and reminded Him that He'd created her to be a Kingdom money maker. She's not there, yet. Then I reminded Him that I'm assigned to her. From there I knew I had the authority to lead her to freedom from that demonic assault.
Then, we took communion and I anointed her with oil head to toe and spoke The Word and promises of God over her. I also, had her begin taking Bragg's ACV every morning. She told me a couple days ago she felt so good, she wanted to go walking (had it not been so cold). Today she said, "I'm walking by myself and I've been able to sleep. Before I was in so much pain I couldn't sleep and I didn't want to eat." This is huge. Not only because we're big eaters, but because that's some serious pain relief. And she was so hunched over, I'm telling you it was nothing but the enemy sitting on her back. Made me so mad. Now she's walking upright.
Talk about a faith boost. Going from constant pain that one doctor prescribes a med for and have it cause problems or work a little, and then when you go to the next doctor they pull you off it and put you on something else that barely works or causes a different problem.
Oh, I almost forgot: they were trying to say her kidneys were messed up. I prayed for them before she went into the appointment and that test result came back as nothing wrong with the kidneys. 😁
This is huge! Not only is her body experiencing healing, but her faith is growing and that's giving her renewed hope and vision for other promises of God. It's hard to see beyond pain - physical, mental or emotional - so this is big breakthrough. And like Patti Cake said the other day, "Good health is priceless." Priceless.
I also had Zayne praying for grandma, too. He's powerful in prayer and cross-generational focused prayer is a God favorite. I'm going to record a teaching on this, so if you love intercession watch out for it.
Let me leave you with this reminder:
It is written: Honor your father and mother - which is the first commandment with a promise - so that it may go well with you and you may enjoy long life upon the earth.
Be exceedingly blessed!

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.

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?
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.
