I've achieved a milestone! Previously God told me to have faith and stay in faith. This week He said he's pleased with how I'm progressing in my faith journey. That's good stuffs. If I'm pleasing Him, that means I'm using His type of faith, and that faith raises the dead. Yes and amen. Watch.
The Bible tells us to hold fast to our confessions of faith because the enemy always comes to pull them away from us and make us say something other than what God told us. Lord ... sheep, sheep, sheep. That's us. The hardest part is when those he sends with this agenda are our closest confidantes and usual faith partners.
Faith works. If your faith isn't up to a level that allows you to walk in authority and dominion, I have some tips that will help you get ignited.
God wants you to live out your inheritance. He and Yeshua paid a high price so you could. Go for it!
Our enemy is fully invested in blocking any blessing God desires to give us. They're diligent about attacking every way possible until they break us down and we break faith. Witness. That's why we must be alert so that we can avoid, counter or discover their strategies and win with The Word.
I complete a few stealth missions with The Lord every year. During these missions, He leads me into enemy territory, only giving me one step at a time, to get a win for The Kingdom.
The enemy was messing with me earlier today and I wanted to gut punch them as hard as possible. I knew exactly what to do: TESTIFY!
Praise God, loved ones ... I'm finally at home for a few minutes and not running out the door immediately. I went to bed early last night - around 9 p.m. *face palm emoji* - and got up bright and early. I'm drinking my coffee at home instead of in transit and I have a few minutes to catch up those who have some investment (or interest) in my journey.
I haven't been in one place for more than two nights in about five weeks. That took a toll last week and the enemy battered me pretty good. But I got serious payback that knocked them further on their butts than I was. Big shout out to Jesus and Arthur and Cindy for their prayer support.
Let me share a testimony real quickly ... my newest book, Sanctifying Time, was stalled because I wanted a specific number of preorders before releasing it. I told God I'd wait until 12/31/18 and then scrap it if I didn't get the number I wanted. The next day I sent out an email letting folks know about the holdup and got the remaining numbers I wanted in one bulk order within hours. And after that I got a bulk order, even bigger, for Come Forth, Destiny! for TEENS.
I share this small testimony to praise God but also to demonstrate our divine partnership and my increasingly healed timeline.
Blessings upon blessings upon blessings to you in Yeshua's Name.
I realize that praying publicly in tongues may freak some folks out, but I choose to stay away from my flesh in prayer and tongues and praying The Word are sure ways to do that.

As I drove across the Blue Bridge today and looked at the Columbia River, I marveled at the beauty of my hometown. And as often happens, one thought is a seed for another and another ... another.
My hometown really is beautiful. When I was a teen I couldn't wait to get out of here, but now I love being here. It's a place of refuge. And because I'm older and wiser in Christ, I know how important it is to bless this place that I love.
Next thought (which was my third, if you're tracking with me) was God doesn't create crappy, junky land. He makes things beautiful. So when we're in neighborhoods and places that are run down, it's because of defilement, and us not caring for His creation. He doesn't create dumps and place His beloved there. With exception.
Think of Adam. He placed Adam in an ideal place and charged him to care for, develop and maintain it. We're responsible for caring for the land God places us on. You may be thinking you don't own anything, you rent ... no matter. You can do your part to maintain it. Even if it's as small as releasing a blessing over the land each day as you come and go. But you can also pick up any trash that you see on the grounds or pull any weeds that spring up.
The exception is that God will place us in rough spots - that humans made rough, btw - to clean them up. To redeem them. We're supposed to bring The Kingdom to those places in the forms of work (I'm not cursing), authority and dominion.
I'm formally inviting you to The Tri-Cities, Wash. I love it here and am blessing the land every chance I get. I'm having a conference October 20, 2018 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Patti and I are going to minister as prophet and seer to the human spirit to locate the next piece of deliverance you need to overcome.
I'm also going to teach on the anti-Christ spirit. This is a big one because it's a high-level spirit that rules over Jezebel and Leviathan. We're so distracted by those two lesser demons that we ignore the damage that Christ told us the anti-Christ would cause in Revelation, and is happening right before our eyes in the world.
I'm also going to heal the Psalm 139:16 timeline. Aligning our lives with God's Original Design is crucial. You have to get the book He wrote about your life out of the enemies' hands and open so you can be, do and have what He ordained for you.
I hope you'll come. Big blessings!
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!
