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."

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.

God is so, so good. You truly can sow for a debt-free car. I have testimonies from 2014 til now as witnesses.
I thought I'd only started praying for a debt-free car in March 2017, but because I record everything, as you see below, I can verify I prayed three months for it.
I had phenomenal worship this past Tuesday (7/15/14) night. I entered into a realm that can only be accessed when worshiping in spirit and in truth.
I prayed for a half hour with a specific request and then left my agenda to attend to the Lord's, and that's when worship began to pour out of me. And, when I say it poured out of me, I mean that. Through my spirit Holy Spirit declared praises to God that were beyond my human mind. This is one of the psalms I journaled at 10:18 p.m.:
My God is famous. The most famous. He is One who commands a million chariots. He rides out into battle with His sceptor outstretched; His hand cannot be stayed. O magnify the Lord!
Good morning Zari,
I wanted to send you a hand written thank you note to express our sincere gratitude for praying with us. But I couldn't wait that long for you to receive it through snail mail. I wanted you to get this right away.
There are not many people that you can call on in the morning before day who will drop whatever they are doing and agree with you in prayer. I was praying for my husband in the hospital and I heard Holy Spirit speak your name. I was almost afraid to call because we have never met in person and I didn't know if it was ok. I heard your name again. So I called. Thank you for answering our call. Thank you for praying and thank you for speaking the word ONLY!!!!!
My husband was released from the hospital yesterday. Praise God! Hallelujah!!!!!
We are believing God for complete healing and restoration of his kidneys, we are believing God that his creatinine and bun levels are normal. We are believing God that his heart is completely healed with no signs of congestive heart failure. We are believing God that his B/P is normal stabilized and the perfect 120/80. We know that Kevin is ALREADY healed.
The doctors want us to prepare for him to go on dialysis but the devil is a liar!!!!
We are covenant people who know and understand our rights as born again believers. We know that Jesus took every sickness, disease and infirmity on His body so that Kevin would have ONLY healing and health on his body. We know our authority as believers. We have prayed according to the word of God. We know that God has heard our prayer. We know that healing is ours. We believe we received it when we prayed. And now we thank God for manifested healing in Kevin's body.
May Grace, Peace, Mercy and Favor run you over and overtake you. May you forever walk in the Shalom of God. May you know only goodness all the days of your life. May God keep you from the evil of the present day and not let it hurt your or grieve you or your family. May your seed be mighty upon the earth. May every seed you've planted yield a 100 fold return harvest. May you love life and see only good days.
Blessings & Agape,
NOTE: I apologize there's no recording of today's live stream. I'm having that type of week with video so please keep me in prayer. As you sow seeds of prayer for me, God will send a harvest of intercession your way. Thank you!

What am I giving away? See pic below!
I finally watched 12 Years a Slave. It was hard to watch and hard to turn away from at the same time. My emotions cycled through periods of fear, anger, confusion, irritation, sadness and I don't even know what else. When it won movie of the year at the 2014 Oscars the same thing happened.
On one hand I was happy that a movie with a large Black cast, director and writer won the award. But it's also ridiculous that such a horrible piece of our history is what's required to win such an award. Why do we only win awards when we remind others of the days of slavery and segregation, rape and families being torn apart? It's complicated, I know.
I also saw a lot of spiritual warfare in the movie so I'm going to spend some time examining it from that perspective. Slavery is demonic. Plain and simple. In the movie the historical practice of using religion as justification for slavery was obvious. The spirit of religion creates bondages of all sorts, and slavery is one of them. Slavery is not God's will but the enemy will deceive people to the point of ignoring God's love for everyone so that they read the Holy Scriptures incorrectly aka without a relationship with and submission to Holy Spirit.
In more cases than not in the Bible the word slave can be exchanged for what we might call an employee. When God spoke of slaves He reminded us from Genesis to Revelation through Abraham, David, Solomon, Paul, et. al. that slaves/employees were to be treated justly because masters/employers also have a master in heaven who is the ultimate judge. We have to understand that slavery that oppresses, beats, dehumanizes and kills is evil and cannot and should not ever be blamed on God Most High, creator of heaven of earth. But because the spirit of religion was and still is used to enslave people there are many in my community who are angry at God and therefore don't want anything to do with Him. It's the demonic realm that veils the truth of the written Word of God and that looses the spirit of religion to bind people. The door to the enemy was opened through racial slavery which wounded our souls, the blood of our ancestors is in the soil of this land and we and the land need healing.
So how does the Black community receive healing? It's actually very simple. It's spiritual warfare that's keeping us sick so we need a spiritual antidote. Jesus will heal each of us individually, we know this, but for us as an ethnic group to receive healing en masse there are a couple different ways I'm aware of that will bring healing to us. One is for Caucasian Americans to confess their sin and the sins of their ancestors committed in this land, repent and ask forgiveness of the Black community. You may think this is wild or far out, but it's actually happening all over the country in small groups.
Patti and I did this a couple years ago. We were just talking one day about something and the topic of race relations came up. She took it upon herself to confess her sin, if any, regarding Black Americans and that of her ancestors and then she asked my forgiveness. I received her confession, forgave her, and then I confessed my own sin and that of my ancestors that remained regarding my ungodly beliefs, words and actions regarding Caucasians. She received my confession and forgave me. Now Patti and I have a covenant that God has promised to use around this country because we broke layers of heavy, demonic chains in the spiritual realm. And, we're not the only ones. I've seen this happen in a few other apostolic centers in the nation. I know some want national apologies and that may not happen, and it doesn't have to. It can happen between a mentor and mentee like with me and Patti Cake. It only takes one powerful prayer warrior to drop the rock in the ocean and start the ripple.
Another way is for a deliverer for the Black community - like Moses - to rise up in this nation. The tricky part about this is human nature (go read Exodus for further understanding). Human nature poses a problem because we've seen a couple of leaders try to speak for us and fail - Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton - and the most successful - Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. - was assassinated. When we look at this it's easy to see how the demonic realm fights the healing of Black-Caucasian race relations in this country. The one who followed God's plan to bring national deliverance and healing - MLK - was killed but the two who have their own agendas (self is always of the demonic realm) are still around and we're still sick.
Ok, so let me review the main points I want you to receive from this:
This is heavy topic and though I have more to share, I'm going to stop for now. I'm very interested to know your thoughts on this post and would greatly appreciate any comments you're willing to share. I always hesitate a little to speak on race because it's such an emotional topic, but the Lord's answer to me not wanting to share was, "Revelation isn't only for you." I do realize that there's a large population of people who want nothing to do with God, Jesus and Holy Spirit, but They're the only ones who can heal this issue. No amount of legislation, political commentary, convention, panels or temper tantrums about racial bias will heal the deep wounds of this country. Until someone with spiritual discernment takes the lead not even the small groups (like Patti and I, Dr. Alston, Dr. Battle and Dr. Pierce) will get started.
