National Day Of Prayer for COVID-19 Coronavirus

Today I join with our President and millions of Christians around the USA on this #NationalDayOfPrayer.

I declare #Psalms91 over us. Jesus you said, If I will be lifted up, I will draw all men unto me.” Jesus, I lift you up over the United States, I lift you up over the world. Draw all men and women and children unto you. Stretch out your hand and eliminate #covid19 the #coronavirus. We declare healing for all infected.

The Bible says it is by your stripes Jesus that we have been healed! We declare healing over those who are sick today. Let your people arise with faith and begin to lay hands on the sick and see them recover. This goes for every sickness and every disease. Let us see miracles break out across the country as your people rise in faith for the impossible. The same Holy Spirit that was poured out in Acts NEVER LOST His Power! The Blood of Jesus Never lost its power. The same blood of Jesus that washes away our sins, heals our bodies. Thank you #Jesus for your sacrifice on the cross for us. We declare health and wholeness for every body!

We will not bow to the spirit of fear! We reject fear and receive faith! For the Lord has not given us a spirit of fear but of Power Love and a Sound Mind! Father release a sound mind over every #government official. Let them lead with wisdom. I pray for our President Donald #Trump and First Lady Melania, their family, Vice President Mike Pence and his wife and family. Protect them, give them wisdom and guide them in truth and love. Father your will be done, your kingdom come on earth as it is in Heaven. Provide, protect and heal our nation and the nations of the world. For yours is the Kingdom and the Power and the Glory Forever Amen!

When someone’s Destiny is cut short – Runing the race for someone else.

What are we supposed to think when someone has received a word from the Lord of something they will do or be a part of someday and they died before the fulfilment takes place? Do we stop believing in the prophetic or hearing the voice of God? How is this linked to faith?

Hebrews 11:1 says, Now faith is the substance (confident, assurance) of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.

Faith is believing in something God has said that we cannot see, with confidence that it will come to pass. So what happens when we feel God has said something to us but it does not come to pass in our lifetime or in the lifetime of our loved ones?

Many know Hebrews 11 as The Heroes of Faith chapter. But as I was reading it today, I was struck 2 times where it said they did not see the promises come to pass in their lifetime.

Hebrews 11:13, 16

“All these people were still living by faith when they died. They did not receive the things promised; they only saw them and welcomed them from a distance, admitting that they were foreigners and strangers on earth. 16 Instead, they were longing for a better country—a heavenly one. Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God, for he has prepared a city for them.”

We applaud them for their faith, not realizing they were human as well, and wrestled with probably the same thoughts we have. They did not see the promises fulfilled in their lifetime. They had to have confidence in God that he would fulfill his word and keep obeying and moving forward, if they saw it with their own eyes or not.

I can’t imagine what that would have been like… Actually, yes I can. I’ve already seen it in my own life. My grandma Johnson about a year or two before she died, went through prophetic assembly at our church. I remember listening to what they were saying and wondering how God was going to fulfill those things in her life. When she died suddenly before doing any of the things they spoke over her, I wrestled with the words they said. After her death, I remember reading through Hebrews 11 and felt like I was reading the last verse for the first time.

Hebrews 11:39-40 NIV

39 These were all commended for their faith, yet none of them received what had been promised, 40 since God had planned something better for us so that only together with us would they be made perfect.

Hebrews 11:39-40 Nkjv

39 And all these, having obtained a good testimony through faith, did not receive the promise, 40 God having provided something better for us, that they should not be made perfect apart from us.

Did you catch that? That they should not be made perfect apart from US! And in the NIV version it said since God had planned something better for US so that only together with US- They would be made Perfect.

To me that means the people who came after those Heroes of Faith were the ones who walked out the promises God had given them. If that happened when the Bible was written, it still happens today!

Who went before you that was given a promise from God they never saw fulfilled? What are the things that YOU who have the Baton will be carrying out to perfect their promise? What a sobering thought no wonder it says in chapter 12 verse 1

Therefore we also, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which so easily ensnares us, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, 2 looking unto Jesus, the [a]author and [b]finisher of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

When the Bible was written it was not written in chapters. It was usually a continual thought that flowed from one chapter to another. Unfortunately, many times we don’t read the word of God in context and keep reading before or after the verses that we are focusing on. I’m so glad my awesome College professors at Portland Bible College pounded that into us. Right after it was talking about the Heroes of Faith not seeing the promise that we are supposed to carry on, it goes on to tell US to run the race before us with endurance.

What an incredible revelation! Not only does it answer the probing question of why God can speak something and it not come to pass in our lifetime; it gives us the direction of how to take on the mandates God has spoken over those in the past and run our race with endurance.

The question then comes, what is our race?

How do I know the race that God has set for me?

The answer is simple.

You live each day dedicated to God 100%. Having ears that are open to hear his voice and living in obedience to him. Spending time reading, studying and applying the word of God. Planting yourself in a Bible based local church who is your spiritual covering/authority (wives as well as your husband who is your first level of covering).

You run your race by obeying the things that God has set in front of you to do each day. Trusting Him 100% that as you listen to him, receive counsel and wisdom from your spiritual leaders when needed you will be guided on your race. If your wisdom is lead in purity and peace your path will be made straight and you fill fulfill the race set before you.

James 3:13-18

13 Who is wise and understanding among you? Let him show by good conduct that his works are done in the meekness of wisdom. 14 But if you have bitter envy and [h]self-seeking in your hearts, do not boast and lie against the truth. 15 This wisdom does not descend from above, but is earthly, sensual, demonic. 16 For where envy and self-seeking exist, confusion and every evil thing are there.

17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, willing to yield, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality and without hypocrisy. 18 Now the fruit of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace.

Ever decision should be made with the wisdom of God and first pure then with peace. That is another discussion for another day.

My favorite life verse is:

Prov 3:5-6

Trust in the Lord with all your heart,

And lean not on your own understanding;

6 In all your ways acknowledge Him,

And He shall [b]direct your paths.

Let’s keep running, don’t give up if you don’t see someone elses words not fulfilled. If God asks you to, pick up their baton and run like your life depends on it. Because a fulfilled life WILL depend on it.

Faith – Trust – Heaven – The true story of Dean Braxton, his journey to heaven after being dead 2 hrs.

Some people think, if you desire at end of your life to go to heaven, you are giving up the fight a faith. Not True! It is a very delicate balance of believing in faith for healing to the very very end and at the same time having complete trust in God if death takes place. The hardest part is not resenting God if a loved one does join him in heaven.

It is almost like being stiff-necked and stubborn in your faith and quickly trusting God if we do not see the result we want., it may be easy to give up your faith when things happen that we don’t understand, but if you are ever in that place there are millions around the world who understand what that feels like and there are people who can help support you in that time of grief.

3 years ago Dean Braxton came to Destiny Christian Fellowship to share his testimony of dying and coming back to life after visiting heaven. He is so humble and genuine. This was my first impression of what he said.

“Incredible message from Dean Braxton today. Totally changed my perspective on dying. He went in for kidney stones and the toxin exploded through his body and he was Dead for 1hr 45min.

What he experienced in dying and what he felt and experienced in heaven he compared Biblically as he spoke today. He talked about animals in heaven and that everything is alive, everything has intelligence and is aware and alive. In revelations it ever talks about a bird that flies around the throne giving praise to God. He said he can’t accurately describe what it is like because you just dont have earthly words to describe it other than Pure Love and a Peace that is indescribable.

He said that when a believer in Christ is dying their spirit leaves their body even before the body breaths its last breath. What remains is like a car running out of gas. There is such a quick transition but total peace because you are in the presence of Jesus. He said as he arrived Jesus was there with all his family members as well as generations of those in his family who went before him. He said that everyone and everything welcomed him and was happy to see him. All our attitudes go away just pure thoughts and feelings. Negative relational Issues from people on Earth are gone. THAT is something to look foreword to.

He said that Jesus told him he needed him more on Earth than in heaven right now, that he had a mission to fulfill. Dean kept on saying that we are here for such a short time and that in heaven there is NO death and decay. That every day we wake up we are here for a shorter amount of time. We need to take advantage of every day. Sharing with those we know that Heaven is real, Jesus is real and his love surpasses the wrong things we do in life. Nothing compares to knowing Christ and realizing that not only did he die for our spiritual death but our physical death. The pain of death does not touch the believer! What a gift Christ gave us. Oh, Death where is your sting. Oh, grave where is your victory. He has overcome and we get to live with Him for eternity. He is our treasure and our reward!

For the full testimony, here is Dean’s Book. I would encourage you to read and share it with others who might still fear dying. It is such an encouragement.

After crushing – You will produce fruit

I know this is for someone today: A grain of wheat must be crushed before it is turned into flour.

Once it is crushed it is multiplied and only after that, can it turn into something nourishing for ourselves and others.

However, before it is turned to bread it is mixed with others, it sits and waits for growth. But even after growth it has to be beaten down so it can grow even more.

Before you can eat it, it has to go through the fire.

I bet that little grain of wheat never knew its destiny. It never realized that to become all that it is going to be, life will be difficult and seem to almost be abusive. However, when it is finished, it smells, tastes, and feels beautiful. It is able to give nourishment to those around it and bring life to a weary body.

A life surrendered to God will produce the end result that leads to fruitfulness and blessing to others. Don’t run from pain or discomfort, good will come from it!

You Will Produce Fruit-

The spirit of faith is the Spirit of YES!

Eph 3:20-21

God is already in our dreams, He is in our future. He is us calling us to come to Him

Hebrews 11:1 Now faith is being sure we will get what we hope for. It is being sure of what we cannot see.

Joshua 14:6-12. ; 17:14-18

Sometimes Life Be Like…

I love the song “Holy Spirit You Are Welcome Here. Come Flood this place and change the atmosphere. Your glory Lord is what my heart longs for to be overcome with your presence Lord.”

When we feel like life is going too fast or spinning out of our control, God is not surprised. He has our back. We are not alone. He has a plan. We get to do this life journey with Him and he will always make our path straight. Trusting in Him is the key when we feel like we are not going to land. We will land secure with him. Faith’s journey may not be easy but it is full of promises and joy when we lean into Him when we are weak. Feed on the word of God. Get into worship. Abandon your fears and lean into his goodness. Yes His Goodness. It is unending.

Motivated by Faith or Fear?

No matter how crazy it might be – When God calls us to do something we need to be motivated out of faith not fear. The provision will always be there.

In 1 Kings 17 – 19 you will read the historical account of the prophet Elijah. Every time God called him to do something he was provided for. He was fed by Ravens with bread and meat 2 times a day in the desert. A poor Widow who God kept her bin and jar full of flour and oil to feed her son, Elijah and herself till the drought was over. Then Elijah had the world’s best wilderness room service, an Angel waking him up 2 times to eat the food it had prepared for him. That meal gave him enough strength to go 40 days and nights with nothing.

In between all of that were incredible signs of God’s miraculous power and miracles. Fire from heaven to consume an altar, raising the Widow’s son from the dead, declaring a drought has ended, God’s revelation to him on Mount Horeb after he ran from a queen who wanted to take his life.

He definitely did not have a boring life but one that required complete trust and faith in the one true God. Elijah was 100% human. And just like you and me he had a call on his life. He had a gifting, just like we all do. God asked him to do things that were crazy and required faith. Elijah obeyed and God came through. God never let him down and he will never let us down.

We are human but if we have received Christ as our savior and have been filled with the Holy Spirit – we have received HIS power and anointing inside of us! That is what equips us for everything he has called us to do.

Are you ready to do this with Him?
Read 1 Kings 17-19 and let your faith rise in our awesome God!

How to be a REALIST while operating in FAITH 

🔘How to be a REALIST while operating in FAITH. 

Sometimes there is a conflict between a realistic mindset and a faith-filled lifestyle.
🤔 The realistic mindset says: based on these facts this is and will be my result.

🛐A lifestyle of faith says: because of these facts I hold fast to the promise that God has given me and I will have these results.

At times, the faith filled lifestyle will take the first step and expect God to do all the rest. Unfortunately, many people stop at that first step, and do not ask for wisdom and understanding to know what THEY should be doing to encourage the process along.
Not asking for wisdom for the next step, it is like burying your talent in the ground and expecting it to produce something. What did the master think about that?

If we are the bride of Christ then that indicates a joining partnership. When we partner with God we are coming together listening to each other, strategizing and executing specific plans. This may not relate to Everyday Life, but for me as a business owner I take my partnership with God seriously because the future of our company depends on it.

For instance the design show we just had in Los Angeles, which was a massive investment for our company, may not have produced instant sales at the show (just 1) but this is where faith in action comes in. I believe the first small strategies are in play now with ideas God gave me however, that is just the start. I choose to not only have faith but ask for divine strategies to go after the leads we received in a completely new way than they have ever experienced before from a company.
🤔💕🛐
In the end, you can have faith and be a realist. You just can’t be a realist and allow fear and doubt to come in to squash your faith. .😉

2017 the Arising of the Watchmen

I have been sensing strongly in the last year THE ARISING OF THE WATCHMEN. They are those who feel compelled by the Spirit of God in prayer and in word and deed to proclaim what the Spirit of the Lord is saying. Not only in the prophetic but in the present. Those who have an eye to see beyond what is happening in the natural but to see the spiritual significance behind it and how it connects with other events past present and future. Many times watchmen are misunderstood or told they are too spiritual about certain things. I believe that watchmen are called by God to have an eye and ear to heaven and the ground of earth. They are also those, especially this year, who God is raising up to call the church to prayer or action. When you read Ezekiel 33 you will see the responsibility of the watchmen. Those who are called into this area of ministry should not take it lightly. It is a serious responsibility but the result is much freedom, protection and release of joy. There is a difference between a watchman and an intercessor. It is one thing to be alerted of situations and another to go before the throne room of God and declare His purposes from heaven to earth. 
I am so excited for what God is going to do in 2017. It is beyond anything I have ever felt going into a new year. At the same time, like never before, in the last year I have been stirred in my spirit to be on guard and vigilant with what the Spirit of God is saying. I know going into this next year will be the fulfillment of so many words that God has spoken over us personally and the church. I am standing on God’s promises and declaring His words to us that we will go forth like branches over a wall bearing fruit. 


INCREASE – INCREASE – INCREASE!!! This is a year of INCREASE. The harvest is coming in and our doors are open and ready, as well as, our feet outside showing love and revealing who Jesus is! Get ready for new assignments, and new levels of promotion. Its coming. God going to supply every need in the church, in your homes, at your jobs, in your schools! I see loaves of bread falling from heaven and to each person it becomes exactly what you need for your situation. He knows and is faithful to provide. 


This is a time to TRUST like never before because He is going to set you up in front of Cliffs where you will have to make a giant leap, or choose to go back to where you came from. This is not a time for going back it is a time for taking a leap of faith and trusting God that He has provided the promised land on the other side. 


Confidence in who God is and his promises are the foundation of faith. When we know that God loves us and has good things in store for us we can firmly be grounded in his promises. Hallelujah! Im ready for this year! Are you?

We are winning! The Year of Hope

Its a good thing that God said He will build His church, we have to be like Peter which means “the rock”, solid, immovable, reliable, and strong. The rest is in God’s hands. He has given us the keys which allows us access to whatever we need. We are overcomers and we are WINNING! No power of hell can overtake us! Its in the book!! Partnering with Heaven to release His treasures on Earth is our greatest reward and daily adventure. 

Matthew 16:18-19 New King James Version (NKJV)

18 And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it. 19 And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed[a] in heaven.”

I want to see breakthroughs in areas people have been praying for and we are entering into a season where God is pouring out His Spirit in new and powerful ways. He is strengthening our foundations and renewing our purpose as His will is gladly obeyed. Favor – Blessing and Increase our released as we become His hands and feet to our community. New Hope- New Strength & Freedom is ours!

I am a citizen of heaven

Yesterday I had the privilege of being with 19 First graders who were quoting this verse over and over for about 10 minutes. What a prophetic time as a very close friend stepped into heaven after midnight, finally receiving the full manifestation of her healing from cancer. Diane Callahan never doubted for a second that her Lord Jesus Christ was her healer and now she has received entrance into the presence of her Papa God.

My heart rejoices with the fact that she is finally seeing face to face the one she has held on to so tightly her whole life. I saw her swinging at the angel of death so many times in the last few years but despite every prayer and verse there are times we just dont understand why, but that didnt change Diane’s faith. She believed till the very end that Jesus could heal her. This shouldnt weaken our faith only strengthen it. She was a powerful example of unwavering faith and in my opinion every time I read Hebrews 11, i will add her name to the list of the Heroes of faith. Heaven has gained a legend!
