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

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." 🤣😂🤣

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.

This has been a remarkable prayer season. I've logged more than 50 hours in tongues since Patti Cake and I first started back on March 29. I prayed in the spirit two hours or more a day for 20 days leading up to my ordination, and now I'm back to one hour a day which is the norm.
The first week or so of the prayer season was rocky. But that just makes sense because we entered into focused, forceful prayer BECAUSE the enemy was messing with us. Since we broke through, I've had peace like a river. I don't even know what that means exactly. All I know is that I've been walking in a tremendous grace since the breakthrough and I love it. I know it won't last forever, but it's delicious, lemme tell 'ya.
One awesome thing that's transpired is I got some good revelation for weight loss. If you've ever struggled with your weight, you may be interested in this. So ... I hadn't been running like I have for the past 20 years. I practically quit which means I'm getting fat. I'm too short to be gettin' fat. There's no if, ands or buts about it. I look CAH and I don't like to shop so I need my clothes to fit.
I've been learning about how our spirits - which are direct connects to Yahweh - can do all kinda amazing things such as bring various types of healing, revelation and more. I told my spirit a couple weeks ago in passing, that I wasn't happy with this weight gain and I wanted participation in getting my weight under control. So Little Zari (is what I call her) started alerting me when I wanted to eat something. Normally when I'm hungry I have a taste for something specific that's fat and greasy good, but one day she said, "Protein." Nothing else, just, "Protein." I went and got some protein, it satisfied me and I felt good afterward. Not sluggish, didn't want to nap (that's a miracle in itself 'cause eating and then sleeping is a right nice combo!).
I was supes surprised because that never happened before - well, to be honest, I'd never been paying attention enough before or honored my spirit's voice for that type of information in the past. So I began to explore it. Of course, God already has right eating solutions for us but we have to be willing and disciplined to get with Him to receive the revelation. I was reminded of Dr. D'Adamo's blood type diet so I looked him up and reacquainted myself with what he recommended for me. Basically, my spirit was like, "Ding, ding, ding, ding, ding!"
I first heard about Dr. D'Adamo a few years ago from my podmate, Ele. She's a smarty pants massage therapist in Philadelphia and is either fully schooled or getting there in nutrition. At the time I read his info and just filed it away because I was running and doing fine then. But now that I've put on some pounds that I no longer want, I have to do something. For real, for real, not for play-play.
This first week I gave up dairy and increased my protein, and man, I feel good. I'm not a baby cow, so there's no reason for me to be eating dairy anyway - you know that milk does a body good mess is all about money-making, right? But seriously, my body feels good, I'm sleeping good and I have more energy and fewer aches and pains. According to his diet I was supposed to give up dairy, wheat and gluten the first week, but I gotta ease into this if I wanna stick with it. I'm down two pounds. 😊
I'm not endorsing his diet or products to you (haven't bought any, yet), what I'm doing is making you aware that God has a plan for your weight loss and management and He can give you the revelation you need to be successful at losing extra weight. He can download that info into your spirit or simply bring it to the surface because your perfect weight plan is already encoded in your spiritual DNA.
So this makes me think of a couple points:
This has been a phenomenal season. It's harvest time for Patti and I, too. But, I'll have to write about that some other time. This is already too long and I'm not even done. Plus, it's after 2 a.m. and I have to get up in too short of a time, but I'm gonna write a bit more because I'm so fired up.
A couple more things. I was pondering the attacks the enemy hits single moms with yesterday. The poverty is just one part, but they really do love to make single moms slaves. Black single moms especially. I was looking at several I've walked with over the past few years, and there's a need for some revelation that'll destroy a deeply ingrained stronghold. Please release verbal agreement with me that God shine light on this and give me revelation if it's an area He wants me to address. There's definitely something there, but it may not be my problem to solve. As I continue to chew on this, I'll keep you updated here or on ZM7A.
Lastly, I received two mentoring requests last week to battle the occult. Whew ... not for the faint of heart, that's for sure. But, more importantly, I'm glad these folks have a desire to be set free and that God has equipped me with a deliverance arsenal that's at the ready. Please release a verbal agreement that God release to me light, revelation, wisdom and authority that causes major damage to the enemy who's been devouring these families and delivers them into the freedom He intends for them in this season of life.
I bless you in Yeshua's Name and authority!
P.S. God is doing something with me and The U.K. My products have taken a dip in sales in the U.S. but they're thriving in Europe. Methinks seeds are being planted for future endeavors. We'll see.

I must admit when I dreamed of flying all over for free I only partially believed it would happen to me and I didn't think it would happen in only 23 months. That's a demonstration of Kingdom living, seeking God first and focusing on what He wants done in the earth.
