I realize I have so many testimonies on a weekly basis that I need to start sharing at least once or twice a month. I will make an effort to do so we can all see God's power at work in our regular lives.
2 days ago, I felt a soreness in my throat, and I spoke God's word over it like I usually do. I took a cap full of my anointing oil, because I figured it was the best thing for me, it contained God's power, and was blazing hotter than anything I could steam up. When I woke up for church sunday, my throat was definitely sore, and inflamed, it was clear that the devil was looking for someone to give some upper respiratory infection to, but he had picked the wrong person because I wasnt even going to give it a name. Funny dude though cause didnt he realize it last week when my eyes were inflamed and burning, and it was like he was watching over my shoulder, and I laughed in the mirror proclaiming God's word, and still wouldnt give it a name!
"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places." Ephesians 6:12 (KJV)
The Message explains it even better
"And that about wraps it up. God is strong, and he wants you strong. So take everything the Master has set out for you, well-made weapons of the best materials. And put them to use so you will be able to stand up to everything the Devil throws your way. This is no afternoon athletic contest that we'll walk away from and forget about in a couple of hours. This is for keeps, a life-or-death fight to the finish against the Devil and all his angels." (The Message)
I never spoke a word about it to anyone, I thought ok I believe today is communion Sunday so lets see what kind of infection can resist the Blood of the Lamb. I got to church late, and sure enough we had communion, I told God what I was expecting, before partaking in communion. After church the pain in my throat was there, but I kept speaking God's word. Monday's morning, I noticed now another part of my mouth too was also inflamed as well, I laughed because I knew victory was certain. Sure enough, by Monday night, its all gone, no more pain in my throat! Jehovah Raphe, the God that healeth us!
Reminder, any type of sickness (big or small) is of the devil (nope the Job example doesnt apply to everyone), never confess it, or speak those words out loud. I'm sure if I had gone around saying "My throats hurts!", "I have a sore throat", or ran to the pharmacy to pick up some lozenges or something, I would "proudly" have the ailment now, and be sipping tea and whatever concoction I can think of, and still be in pain.
As you take your daily vitamins capsule (if u do), or if u dont, still dont forget to take your daily Jehovah capsule.
"My child, pay attention to what I say.
Listen carefully to my words.
Don’t lose sight of them.
Let them penetrate deep into your heart,
for they bring life to those who find them,
and healing to their whole body." Prov 4:20-22 (NLT)
"Let all that I am praise the Lord;
with my whole heart, I will praise his holy name.
Let all that I am praise the Lord;
may I never forget the good things he does for me.
He forgives all my sins
and heals all my diseases. " Psalm 103: 1-4 (NLT)
"He was beaten so we could be whole.
He was whipped so we could be healed." Isaiah 53:5 (NLT)
"He sent His Word and healed them." Ps 107:20
Who was the Word? Jesus (John 1:1)
He sent Jesus to die on the Cross so you and I can be healed! Stop delighting in your sicknesses and trying to get sympathy from man, by running around proclaiming it to everyone in sight!
Always look to God first even if its something as simple as a cold or a headache or something as major as cancer or a stroke. Many times God becomes 2nd fiddle, we remember Him much later in the process, and even then we are filled with so much doubt and fear that we rob ourselves of our healing. I'd much rather stand upon His word from the get go, even if I have to go into surgery because I'll know confidently that even in the OR, He'll be the surgeon, the actual physician will just be a tool being used by God...what better satisfaction!
So I speak confidently the Bible confession put together by Charles Capps daily, "Every organ, every tissue in my body functions to the perfection to which God created it to function and I forbid any malfunction in my body in the name of Jesus!"
"Words kill, words give life;
they're either poison or fruit—you choose." (The Message)

The Pregnant Man-check your seeds!
A few months ago, there was talk of a pregnant man, which had everyone in surprise till we all found that he was truly born a she! Think about it though, a pregnant man, how much of an oxymoron is it, and we all laughed about it, like it can never be, unless he so happens to be carrying another person's seeds. The truth is there are so many pregnant men in our midst.
Pregnant with spawn,
evils of this world.
Pregnant with greed,
In us, yes the right seed has been planted, and though our bellies look like they are about to burst, the gunk that is in it stinks, and an ugly sight awaits to bear its head. That is even if we are fortunate because many of us are better off dealing with stillbirths and miscarriages!
Many of us are walking around with our heads held high, eyes wide open, and a big smile,
caressing our bloated bellies with an entitlement mentality.
now wasted toil.
Really think about it, if someone were to do a C-section of what is in your pregnant belly, what would appear? What have you done with the seeds that were planted in you? Do you even know what seeds have been implanted in you, or are you dealing with an illegitimate product, planted in you by the world's insanity. Are you carrying another man's seeds? Dont waste your months carrying what isnt yours and then spend time in unnecessary hard labor before you figure it all out.
Power, riches, wisdom, strength, honor, glory and blessing.
“You are worthy, O Lord our God, to receive glory and honor and power. For you created all things, and they exist because you created what you pleased.”
“Worthy is the Lamb who was slaughtered— to receive power and riches and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and blessing.”
Power, riches, wisdom, strength, honor, glory and blessing...these are the original seeds.
The blood of Christ had to be shed for the seals of life to be broken, the scroll to be read and then the seeds planted within us.
“You are worthy to take the scroll and break its seals and open it. For you were slaughtered, and your blood has ransomed people for God from every tribe and language and people and nation. And you have caused them to become a Kingdom of priests for our God. And they will reign on the earth.”
Many of us have long been robbed unknowingly of the true intent of the seeds, the true genuine ones have been uprooted and counterfeit ones put in its place. Oblivious we continue grinning as we continue strutting as far away from our source of supply, we go off in search of conquest, for the world to see our disillusioned blessings that we think is from God and bow and worship us, bestowing us the praise, glory and honor that we feel with deserve. We carry on till that ill-fated day when our sideline worldly cheerleaders watch in dismay and we spread our legs to bring forth a smelly messed up junk. Then we crawl back to God and ask Him why He has forsaken us, and given us shame. Yet we forget that His word says:
"Those who look to him for help will be radiant with joy; no shadow of shame will darken their faces."
Psalm 34: 5
Notice the part in bold "Look to Him", to Him, NOT to the world, NOT to ourselves, NOT to the glory that we want bestowed on us by our peers, but to HIM.
"If God doesn't build the house, the builders only build shacks. If God doesn't guard the city, the night watchman might as well nap. It's useless to rise early and go to bed late, and work your worried fingers to the bone. Don't you know he enjoys giving rest to those he loves?"
Psalm 127 :1-2 (The Message)
Examine the seeds planted within you, are they the ones God ordained, or have yours been replaced by the lion that lurks around to steal, kill and destroy. What kind of creation awaits in your delivery room??
"Some fell on good earth, and produced a harvest beyond his wildest dreams."
Matt 13:8 (The Message)
How would you like to have a harvest beyond your wildest dreams? To bring forth a beautiful creation made in the Image of God, filled with His love, radiating with His glory, enthroned in His power, illuminating in His light.
Power in the delivery,
The sight of the new born is
The start of ma's recovery knowing
That behold her new discovery.
sorry for the hiatus, I've been growing and living out the life God has given me to His glory, climbing mountains, and proclaiming His name...trying to be the princess that He ordained me to be! I'll try and be more frequent with updates. Feel free to let me know if you have prayer requests, or would like to a Christian perspective on any issue.
