I want to share some of the posts from my personal Facebook page that I pray will give you hope and encourage you during this season. I also wanted to share my ebook, WORDS FROM THE LORD 2020, with you. Let’s continue to grow, learn and encourage one another!
Love and Blessings, Bernadette
LET US GO OVER TO THE OTHER SIDE!!
Many are concerned about the future of our state and nation. Many are concerned about their lives. I am reminded of a story that the Lord told me many years ago.
I was greatly concerned about a few things and I heard these words spoken to me by the Lord “ Bernadette a deeper TRUST = a deeper REST”. He then reminded me of a Bible story.
I said: Yes Lord!
He then proceeded on and said: As we were going over on the other side, this great monstrous storm came upon the waters. The water began to fill up inside the boat and the boat began to sink. The disciples cried out, we are perishing. They proceeded to go to the stern part of the boat to look for me. They found me fast asleep. They woke me up and said, “Master we are perishing”! I got up and I rebuked the storm and the storm ceased.
At that moment, I was then asked a very important question.
The Lord asked me: Bernadette, why was I able to rest in the midst of the storm?
Before I could answer Him back, God said to me: Because I TRUSTED My word; when I said that we are going over to the other side, we are going over.
He also said: When you learn to TRUST My words you will began to rest in the midst of your storms.
I want to encourage us all, it does not matter what storms come our way in this life. It does not matter how the enemy is boasting himself so proudly saying “I got them now”, “ I got this state now”, “I got this country now. “
NO HE DOES NOT!
Please know that we are going to make it safely to the other side in VICTORY!!
STAY THE COURSE, and do not give up!!!
He said to me: When you learn to trust My words instead of what you see and feel, and even smell, you will have a deeper rest.
Liken the waves and water hitting the disciples to what has come against you in your life and what has come against our cities, our state and our country.
Jesus said that He will never leave us nor forsake us. (Hebrews 13:5).
I want to encourage us all, that the light shines brighter in the darkness!
We are walking in uncharted times, but God is with us. He is an amazing guide. Let’s allow Him to lead and guide us. We are coming safely on the other side.
The light in us will penetrate and destroy the dark and evil agenda of the enemy, as we use our authority that was given to us by our Heavenly Father. (Luke 10:19)
Let’s choose to believe and TRUST His word so that we can enter into that deeper REST.

As I was awakening this morning, I heard these words, “Because the sentence against an evil work is not executed speedily, men’s heart are set to do evil”.
Many people feel that because the day of execution and judgement has not come against their wickedness, their plots, their slanderous words, their cheating, their backbiting and their sneakiness that they continue to walk in their evil doings.
I believe that we are in the season that ALL of wicked agendas, schemes and plots by the enemy will be revealed and eradicated.
We need to make sure that we are not behind the evil or in support of the evil agendas in any way.

We have been given the AUTHORITY and POWER to trample upon serpents and scorpions, and (physical and mental strength and ability) over ALL the power that the enemy (possess); and NOTHING shall in any way harm us. (Luke 10:19)

I love how the GNB version states verse 10.
It states “ He will keep you safe from ALL HIDDEN DANGERS and from ALL DEADLY DISEASES and so NO DISASTERS will strike you and NO VIOLENCE will come near your home.
You may have lost some battles (I have) but let’s turn on the light of God’s word and speak it and continue to speak it.

There is a lot of noise and distractions going on in our world today!!

I am reminded of the Bible verse in the book of Hebrews 12:2, It states “Looking away from ALL that will distract to Jesus, who is the Leader and the Source of our FAITH and is also the Finisher of our faith”.
Why does he try to keep us busy? So that we cannot see his evil tricks and plans that he has done and still trying do against our lives and our country.
When we look away from distractions and look to Jesus (who is light and truth), He will help us to rightly navigate through the noise and distractions; which in return, will expose the enemy’s evil tricks and plans.
The enemy wants to keep us enslaved and in darkness, but the truth and light will make us FREE.
I want to urge us ALL to look and keep looking to Jesus. He is such a masterful and loving guide.
Be encouraged and take comfort that we are on the winning team!!!

There is no need for us to fear or worry.
THE LORD IS WITH US. He will not leave or forsake us.

It doesn’t matter how dark things are in your life or in our state and country, let’s cry out to God and He promised that He will deliver us. Even when we cannot feel God, know that He is with us. You may ask, why is God with us? “Because He said so”.

God does not abandon us to navigate life on our own, but He, the Holy Spirit guides, comforts and intercedes for us. We must work and follow His lead.
Let us ALL allow the Lord to govern our lives so that we can live in total peace ok?

HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!!
Why do we celebrate the 4th of July and what does it mean? This day is very significant in American history. It is the day that the United States officially became its own nation. The Declaration of Independence was adopted on July 4th, 1776, which at that time , America was born.
I want to share with you a little history of how it all began!!
Before America was its own country, it was comprised of 13 colonies established by Great Britain. The first colony was settled in Jamestown and Virginia in 1607. European countries, especially Great Britain, continued to colonize America throughout the 17th century and a good portion of the 18th century. By 1775, an estimated 2.5 million settlers lived in the 13 colonies. New Hampshire, Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, Delaware, New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Maryland, Virginia, North Carolina and Georgia.
Tensions started brewing when Great Britain began passing legislation that gave it more control within the colonies, especially when it came to taxing the colonists. The Crown was in debt after the French and Indian war, so it started taxing the American colonies to increase revenue. The passage of legislation like the Stamp Act in March 1765, the Townsend Act in June and July of 1767, and the Tea Act of 1773 forced colonists to pay more money to Great Britain even though the colonies didn’t have a say in the Crown’s Policies. This became known as taxation without representation and quickly became a heated pillar in the foundation of the American Revolution. This led the colonists to seek independence.
This day is the day that we celebrate our FREEDOMS and our GREAT COUNTRY. Let us stand and continue to stand against the tyranny that is trying to be placed upon ALL of us. We have fought to hard with wisdom from God and we have come to far, to allow our FREEDOMS to be taken away from us. We MUST not allow our Constitutional rights to be destroyed and taken away from us.
I want to thank ALL of the soldiers who fought and gave their lives for the freedom of country!!
I want to encourage us all to keep in our hearts and minds that true FREEDOM is knowing, accepting and walking out what Jesus Christ did at the cross. All other FREEDOMS DERIVES from this freedom. Our Lord and savior shed His precious blood for us ALL. He paid the price so that we can all be FREE from any and everything that we need saving and freedom from.

Let us ALL fixed our eyes on our savior Jesus Christ. Let’s listen for His strategies and then put the strategies to practice. Do not fear and be anxious. It is all going to be ok!!!
I am reminded of the verse that says “For I know the plans that I have for you. For I know the thoughts that I think towards you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon Me and go and pray to Me, and I will listen to you. (Jeremiah 29:11-12).

Many people are concerned and worry about what’s happening in our state and our country today.
I want to share with you a word that the Lord continues to place on my heart for you all.
He said to be STRONG, BOLD and COURAGEOUS for the Lord your God is with YOU. He is with YOU wherever YOU go.

A judge has suspended Michigan’s dormant ban on abortion, saying it likely violated the state constitution.
How can something be unconstitutional if our Michigan’s legislatures passed the law which then signed by the Governor, stating that it is a crime to assist with an abortion? The TRUTH is, it is not unconstitutional.
It was an 1845 law that banned abortion. Since 1931 in the state of Michigan, it has been illegal to assist in an abortion. How long a law has been in place has NOTHING to do with it being relevant or not.
Our current Attorney General stated that she will not defend or enforce the abortion ban. How can she not defend or enforce this ban, when it is the law of our state?
NO ONE has the right to take the life of an innocent baby who cannot defend or help themselves.
The SAFEST place for a baby, should be in it’s mother’s womb.
To ALL of the mothers who have had an abortion, please know that there is total FORGIVENESS and total LOVE for you and your FUTURE is very BRIGHT!!
We as Michiganders can no longer put up with this lawlessness of abortion.
I urge you all to get out and VOTE for candidates who will stand strong for LIFE in every area.
Vote in the primary on August 2, 2022 and in the general election on November 8, 2022.
Life is such a precious gift given to ALL, from our Heavenly Father and we must PROTECT it.
Children are a HERITAGE from the Lord; the fruit of the WOMB is a reward! (Psalms 127:3)
Join me in praying and decreeing that Roe V. Wade be overturned in this generation. For to long have we watched babies being murdered. The safest place for babies, should be in the womb of their mother. An estimated 62 million babies have been aborted since the passing of Roe V. Wade in 1973.
Pray that the Supreme Court judges hold to their right decision and conviction In overturning Roe V. Wade. It was probably leaked in hopes that one of the Supreme Court Judges will change their mind. I believe that what the enemy meant for evil, will turn around for good.
St. John 10:10 states that the thief (the enemy of darkness) comes to steal, kill and destroy, but Jesus (the author of light and who is light) said that He came that we ALL may have LIFE and have it more abundantly (to the fullness).

Happy Resurrection Day! May your day be filled with the peace, love, gratitude and the joy of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!!!
Jesus died so that we can live!
What was the purpose and the power of Jesus’ death and resurrection? The purpose of the cross was to bring us ALL back into fellowship (Right standing) with God. We were ALL dead in sin and without hope (Ephesians 2:1). Adam brought us into sin, but Jesus paid the price to bring us back into right standing with Him.
In Romans 5:17, it states ”For if by one man’s (Adam) offense death reigned by one, much more they which receive abundance of grace and of the gift of righteousness shall reign in life by one Jesus Christ”.
After Jesus was risen from the dead, He met His Disciples in Galilee and spoke to them and said “ALL AUTHORITY has been given to me in Heaven and on Earth”. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing then in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Teaching them to observe ALL things that I have commanded you; And lo, I am with you ALWAYS, even to the end of the age (Matthew 28:17-20).
Jesus gave us back the authority that we once lost. Let us arise NOW and BOLDLY take the authority that He has given to us. Let us exercise this power through prayer over all of the wicked schemes , trickery, plots and demonic forces that are coming against our states, our country and our world today. If we do not take our authority through prayer over the darkness, the darkness will take authority over us. Let us be willing and ready to lead those who are not born of God, to Him.

In 1775, the Lutheran pastor John Peter Gabriel Muhlenberg preached a sermon on Ecclesiastes 3:1, “To everything there is a season, a time for every purpose under heaven.” Concluding the message, he declared, “In the language of the Holy Writ, there is a time for all things. There is a time to PREACH and a time to FIGHT. And NOW is the time to fight.” He then threw off his clerical robes to reveal the uniform of a Revolutionary Army officer. That afternoon, at the head of 300 men, he matched off to join General Washington’s troops and became Colonel of the 8th Virginia Regiment.
Ministers turned the colonial resistance into a righteous cause and served at every level in the conflict, from military chaplains to members of state legislatures to taking up arms and leading troops into battle. And, ultimately, after two main British armies were captured by the Continental Army at Saratoga in 1777 and Yorktown in 1781, the other words of Patrick Henry to his fellow Virginians proved true: “Three million people, armed with the holy cause of liberty, and in such a country as that which we possess, are invincible by any force which our enemy can send against us.”
It is time for pastors, spiritual leaders, all leaders and all people to ARISE and stand against all of the TYRANNY that is being afflicted in our state, our country and our world today.
We must NOT fear, but BOLDLY rise up in FAITH like never before.
Always remember this, when we fear we are allowing the tyranny to consume us. When we do not fear, it is a sure sign of our victory and satan’s defeat.
Philippians 1:28 states “And do not (for a moment) be frightened or intimidated in anything by your opponents and adversaries, for such (constancy and fearlessness) will be a clear sign (proof and seal) to them of their impending destruction, but a (sure token and evidence) of your deliverance and salvation, and that from God.

I was just reading an article about a 12 year old boy who took his life, because he was being bullied in school (article below).
I WANT TO SAY THIS!!
We, beyond a shadow of a doubt, need Jehovah God back into our schools and into our country. When we took God out of our schools (which is light), we allowed the enemy (which is darkness) to enter in.
As I heard one wise man say, if we don’t get God right in this next election, nothing else will matter. When we get God right, culture follows.
We MUST put God back into our culture. When the righteous are in POWER and GOVERNING, the people rejoice. When the wicked are in power, the people mourn. Havn’t so many been in mourning, in a greater measure, these last few years? I want to encourage us all to turn to the light, which is Jesus Christ, and continue daily to walk in that light. It is such a POWERFUL, PEACEFUL, ASSURING, ENCOURAGING and FEARLESS place to live. From that place, we will be given strategies, answers and solutions that we will not find any place else. It is VITAL that we work hard, diligently, wisely and smart as we follow the strategies that are given to us.
I truly believe that the darkness that we are seeing all around us, is being eradicated and will continue to be eradicated by the light that is on the inside of us.
Let’s continue to pray and intercede for each other, our great state, our country and our world.
WE ARE MORE POWERFUL THAN WE REALIZE.

This verse came to me early this morning!
Say to those who are fearful-hearted, “BE STRONG, do not fear! Behold, your God will come with VENGEANCE and with the RECOMPENSE of God; He will come and SAVE you”. (Isaiah 35:4)
The Lord wants you to live in His PEACE and not in the enemy’s fear! (Phil. 4:6-7) The Lord, our precious Heavenly Father is ALWAYS on hand to help you through whatever it is that is trying to bring fear, torment or anxiety upon you. He will never leave you nor forsake you. (Deuteronomy 31:6).
The Lord has NOT left this country!!

I am reminded of a saying that my mother always kept before as a child growing up. She said “Bernadette, a wise person should never argue with a fool, because if a person hears or looks upon the argument they cannot tell which one is the fool”. Wisdom is divine and it comes from the Lord. Jesus is the power and wisdom of God (I Corinthians 1:18).
You see we may have a lot of knowledge, but we need wisdom to know what to do with knowledge and how to apply the knowledge.
It is so VITAL that we FOCUS on the TRUTH and what UNITES us and RISE above what divides us.
Truth is light and remember that the LIGHT always dispels the darkness. God is light and in Him there is no darkness (I John 1:5) Remember also that our U.S. Constitution and the Republican Platform DERIVES from light. It is like cream and cream rises to the top.
I want to encourage everyone to stop the inward fighting, stop the name calling, stop diagnosing each other. Your diagnosis may be totally wrong. Let us focus on spreading the truth of the history of our country, let us focus on spreading the truth of our platform and the truth of our U.S. Constitution. The truth is also that the Republican Party is the abolitionist party. The enemy’s focus is to continually create confusion among us. He is the author of confusion and God is the author of peace (I Corinthians 14:33). The enemy knows that if he can keep confusion going on among us, that he can steal our unity and defeat us all.
We are totally STRONGER TOGETHER, when we rally around the truth.
Let us focus on the truth and put our energy and time in stopping the lies of the critical race theory movement and that America is a racist country movement. America is not a racist country, although we may have some racist people in our country. Let us focus on stopping the shedding of innocent blood (abortion). Let us focus on rescuing and saving our children. Let us stop the voter fraud. We must fight together for election integrity in our country and our world. We have elections to straighten out (2020) and we have elections to win in 2022 and 2024.
WE ARE AT WAR!! Let’s stand together against this evil.

The Father of American Education, expressed the purpose of schools was meant for the advancement of the Christian faith. “ In my view, the Christian religion is the most important and one of the first things in which all children, under free government ought to be instructed. No truth is more evident to my mind than that the Christian religion must be the basis of any government intended to secure the rights and privileges of a free people”. Unfortunately, In time, a philosophical shift took place in America, and the biblical principles for education were slowly eroded and abandoned, with sad and tragic consequences that continue to unfold, John Dewy; known as “The Architect of Modern Education,” said, “There is no God, and there is no soul, Hence, there are no needs for the props of traditional religion.” Those props have been knocked away, and the loss of moral standards has opened the door to untold numbers of unwanted teen pregnancies, abortions, drug abuse, alcoholism, violence, and suicide. If we believe that the Founders were correct in asserting that America would fail if it lost it’s religious foundation, it is primarily incumbent upon Christian believers to reaffirm and reclaim our Christian educational heritage with the same passion and commitment of the Founders. There are many ways and many levels at which to instigate change, but it begins with a willingness to become engaged in the battle. (Noah Webster-1836)
It is VITAL that we all become engaged in the battle that we are facing in our country today.
I want to especially ENCOURAGE and URGE all pastors to become engaged in this battle.
Whether we want to accept it or not, we are at WAR. We are at war for the soul of our country, we are at war for the souls of our babies, we are at soul for the soul of our children and we are at war for the soul of our physical lives.
We must STAND up against this tyrannical government and speak TRUTH and EXERCISE our God Given AUTHORITY and our CONSTITUTIONAL rights. Evil knows that we have already won, but it’s banking on our ignorance and unwillingness to RISE UP against it. We MUST stop evil at it’s core and not let it prevail against us or our country.
Let us ALL engage in the fight that is before us. We must fight this war in the spirit as well as in the natural, trusting in God’s ability and power to bring us total victory, and He will (Ephesians 6:12-17).
We must OCCUPY until Jesus comes back (Luke 19:13 KJV)
Let’s get UNIFIED and LOCK arms together around the truth!!! Who then will be able to stop our mighty moving force? The answer is Nobody.

I was in an amazing historic bookstore in Florida. After engaging with the owner for a short time, he said to me “GIVE ME SOME WISDOM “. I looked at him and then began to search within me and listen for directions from the Lord. I heard these words from my spirit and then I began to speak them to him. I said to him, “Of making many books there is no end, and much study is weariness of the flesh. All has been heard, the end of the matter is, fear God and keep His commandments, for this is the whole duty of man”. He looked at me with tears in his eyes and said. “GIVE ME MORE WISDOM”. I then began to share more as I was led by the Lord.
I would like to elaborate on this word. In the book of Ecclesiastes it states “…..My son, be warned. Of making many books there is no end (So DO NOT believe everything you read), and much study is weariness of the flesh. All has been heard; the end of the matter is this; fear God (Revere and worship Him, knowing that He is) and keep His commandments, for this is the whole of man (the full original PURPOSE of His creation, the object of God’s Providence, the root of character, the foundation of ALL happiness, the adjustment to ALL Inharmonious circumstances and conditions under the sun) and the WHOLE DUTY for EVERY man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing. Whether it is good or evil. (Ecclesiastes 12:12-14)
What is the full, original purpose of our being created?
What is the object of God’s Providence?
What is the root of our character?
What is the foundation of ALL our happiness?
What is the adjustment to ALL of our inharmonious circumstances and conditions under the sun?
What is the WHOLE DUTY for EVERY man?
The answers to all of these questions is to fear and worship God and keep His commandment. This word fear means to reverence and worship God. We are not to be afraid of Him. He does not want us to be afraid of Him. He is our precious Heavenly Father who loves each and EVERY ONE of us with an EVERLASTING LOVE. (Jeremiah 31:3)
God admonished us to keep His commandment. All of His commandments are wrapped up in one word, and that one word is the commandment of LOVE. (St. John 15:12)
You may then ask, “WHAT IS LOVE”? One of the best definitions for love that I have found is in 1 Corinthians 13:4-8 from the classic amplified bible.
It states, “Love endures long and is patient and kind; love never is envious nor boils over with jealousy, is not boastful or vainglorious, does not display itself haughtily. It is not conceited (arrogant and inflated with pride); it is not rude (unmannerly) and does not act unbecomingly. Love (God’s love in us) does not insist on its own rights or its own way, for it is not self-seeking; it is not touchy or fretful or resentful; it takes NO ACCOUNT of the evil done to it (It pays NO attention to a SUFFERED WRONG). It does not rejoice at injustice and unrighteousness, but rejoices when RIGHT and TRUTH prevail. Love bears up under anything and everything that comes, is ever ready to BELIEVE the BEST of EVERY PERSON, it’s hopes are fadeless under all circumstances, and it ENDURES everything without WEAKENING. LOVE NEVER FAILS…….
So, as we go through life let us be reminded of our PRIMARY PURPOSE in life. Our primary purpose in life is to worship, reverence and praise our creator and to keep His commandment (LOVE). Every other purpose for our lives, (be it the President of the United States, Governor, spiritual leader, garbage collector, doctor, lawyer, engineer, school teacher, professor, business owner, nurse, musician, artist, movie actor etc.), should ALL STEM from our primary purpose.
We were ALL created to live for the praise of our Heavenly Father’s glory. (Ephesians 1:12)
I want us to all know and to understand, that divine wisdom comes from our Heavenly Father and Christ is the wisdom of God. (1 Corinthians 1:24-25). As we all work on becoming intimate with Him through the reading of the bible and through worship, reverence, and love, our lives will begin to be governed by His wisdom and we will truly begin to walk in our divine purpose in this life. Knowing WHY WE EXIST and KNOWING OUR PURPOSE is vital to our success and happiness in life.
I want to encourage us all to always revere, worship and keep God’s commandment and we will ride on the high places of life with such peace, joy and contentment.
Love you all

I was sitting here in my living room at 4:30 am this morning, meditating on the purpose and the power of Jesus’ death and resurrection. I then began to write these truths that came to me from the Lord:
We were ALL lost and defeated (eternally doomed). The first man Adam brought us ALL into sin and out of fellowship with God our creator. He did this by disobeying God’s word and following the dictates of his flesh, BUT Jesus Christ (the second man Adam) paid the price of death to bring us ALL out of sin and back into fellowship and right standing with God, our creator. Although Jesus Christ paid this wonderful price for us, we must believe on Him and make Him Lord of our lives to receive these benefits.
The prophet Isaiah prophesied about the purpose of Jesus’ crucifixion. He said “Surely Jesus has borne our griefs (sicknesses, weaknesses and distresses) and carried our sorrows and pains (of punishments), yet we considered Him stricken, smitten and afflicted by God; But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our guilt and iniquities. The chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed. (Isaiah 53:4-5).
NOTE: Jesus was wounded for our transgressions (sins), iniquities, our peace, our financial prosperity and our healing.
You can find the words of these prophecies fulfilled in Matthew 8:16-17 and I Peter 2:24.
Also, the fulfillment of this prophecy is found in Matthew 27. It states “about the sixth to ninth hour there was darkness over all the land, and about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice saying Eli, Eli Lamasabachtani? Which means, My God, My God why have you forsaken me? Some of those who stood there, when they heard that said, this man is calling for Elijah! Immediately one of them ran and took a sponge filled it with sour wine and put it on a reed and offered it to Him to drink. The rest said let him alone, let us see if Elijah will come to save Him”. And Jesus cried out again with a loud voice, and yielded up His spirit (He died).
On the sabbath, there was a great earthquake; for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled back the stone from the door and sat on it. His countenance was like lightning, and his clothing as white as snow. The guards shook for fear of him, and became like dead men, but the angel answered and said to the woman, DO NOT BE AFRAID, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here, FOR HE IS RISEN as He said. Come see the place where The Lord lay and go quickly and tell His disciples that He is RISEN from the dead and indeed He is going before you in Galilee, there you will find Him. When they saw Him they worshipped Him; but some doubted.
Jesus came and spoke to them, saying “ALL AUTHORITY has been given to me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of ALL nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit. Teaching them to observe all things that I have commanded you, and lo I am with you ALWAYS, even to the end of the age. (Matthew 28:1-6 & 17: -20)
GOD IS ALWAYS WITH US!!!
Jesus gave ALL AUTHORITY and POWER to the church.
Jesus put ALL things under His feet, and gave him to be head over ALL things, to the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him, who fills all in all (Ephesians 1:22)
So, what power did Jesus give us? He gave us the power and authority to trample over ALL the power that the enemy possesses (Luke 10:19).
The POWER and the PURPOSE of the CROSS and RESURRECTION is to take your authority and dominion that Jesus Christ paid for you through His precious shed blood, and exercise this power to defeat ALL of the darkness, demons and evil spirits that are lurking on earth.
Also keep in mind that Jesus was manifested to DESTROY and UNDO the works of demons and evil spirits. (I. John 3:8).
This is how we are going to defeat the demons and darkness in our COUNTRY and our GOVERNMENT.
So DO NOT FEAR, but RISE up in FAITH. Let’s be or continue to be the light on this earth.
The light IN us will destroy the darkness AROUND us.
Happy Blessed Resurrection weekend!!

This morning I heard out of my spirit “THE STORM IS PASSING OVER”.
What is a storm? A storm is a violent, tumultuous force. It can also be affliction, calamity, adversity, distress and to attack & attempt to take by scaling the walls.
Our precious Heavenly Father does not bring storms into our lives, but He delivers us out of and from the storms in our lives. Jesus said that He has given us His word so that the PEACE that is in Him, will be in us; and that it will give us great CONFIDENCE as we REST in Him. He goes on to say that in this unbelieving world we will experience trouble, trials, distresses, frustrations, etc., but we MUST be courageous and fearless because He has CONQUERED the world for us and have DEPRIVED it of it’s power to harm us. (St. John 16:33 passion, Amplified)
Our country is going through storms. Some of you may also be going through a storm or storms in your life. It may be a storm of persecution, a storm of fear and worry, a storm of sickness in your body & or your mind, a storm of financial lack, etc.
Are you going to believe God’s word or the storm that you are facing? Let’s choose God’s word ok? Whatever it is that you are facing in life today, there is a GLORIOUS way out. Jesus has and knows the way through your wilderness and also our country’s wilderness. All we need to do is FOLLOW Him.
We follow Him by obeying His instructions and by applying His word to our circumstances (Storms).
By doing this, we are choosing life in our lives.
I want to encourage us ALL to LOOK to Jesus and TRUST Him. Remember He has already CONQUERED the Storm’s for us. As we look to Him and FOCUS our attention on Him, we will come out on the other side with total VICTORY! (Proverbs 4:20-27)
Our Heavenly Father is with YOU and He is with our country. He will keep us ALL anchored and safe until the storm passes.
THE STORM IS PASSING OVER!!!!!!!

His rod and his staff; they comfort us. He prepares a table before us in the presence of our enemies; He anoints our head with oil and our cup runs over. His total GOODNESS and His total MERCIES shall follow us ALL the days of our lives; And we shall DWELL in the house of the Lord FOREVER!! (Psalms 23)
Some of you may be going through dark times in your lives personally. Our country is seemingly going through dark times as well. It may seem like we are experiencing the valley of the shadow of death. Remember it is ONLY a shadow. Our God is with you and He is with our country. When God is with us, we do not have to fear ANY EVIL. When God is with us PROTECTION and PEACE is available to us. Let us continue to rest in His strength and ability to bring us to TOTAL VICTORY!!! Remember our job is to follow and obey Him and His job is to perform!! He for sure will perform BIGGLY on your behalf and upon our country!!
He is preparing a great big bowl of VICTORY at the table for ALL of us!!

Many soldiers placed their lives on the line during the civil war to bring an end to slavery, along with the abolitionist. On January 1, 1863 President Lincoln formally issued the Emancipation Proclamation, calling on the union army to LIBERATE ALL enslaved people in states still in rebellion as “an act of Justice, warranted by the constitution, upon military necessity”. Three million enslaved people were declared to be free. In 1865 the 13th amendment was formally adopted in the United States Constitution. The ending of slavery ENABLED many African Americans to move into their purpose and destiny in life. Because of this freedom many innovations were brought into our world and lives. I want to honor and celebrate them ALL. I also want to point out a few of them and their accomplishments.
George Washington Carver was born January 1, 1864 in Diamond, MO. He was an AMERICAN agricultural scientist an inventor who promoted alternative crops to cotton and methods to prevent soil depletion. He was one of the most prominent scientist of the early 20th century. He was also an educator and was famous for many inventions, including over 300 uses for the peanut.
Sarah Goode was born in 1855 in Toledo Ohio. In 1888 Sarah applied for and was granted a patent in Chicago, Illinois. She conceptualized what she called the cabinet-bed. A bed designed to fold out into a writing desk. Meeting the increasing demands of urban living in small spaces, she invented the cabinet-bed “so as to occupy less space, and made generally to resemble some article of furniture when folded “. She re-imagined the domestic space to make city living more efficient.
Some other African American Inventors are:
I want to point out how we ALL NEED each other, whether we are red, yellow black or white skin. Let us help each other see this TRUTH.
Without the help of the Lord working through President Abraham Lincoln, the soldiers and the abolitionist during the civil war, we would probably still be enslaved and in bondage; and without these GREAT inventors inventing these amazing and beneficial inventions, we would not be where we are today. You see, we are all helpers one to another and we need each other.
We have all come too far to lose what we have fought for. “THAT IS OUR FREEDOM “.
Freedom of religion
Freedom of speech
Freedom to assemble
Freedom of press
Freedom to pursue the American Dream
Freedom to live in a free market system
Freedom to bare arms (etc.)
We ALL bleed red. Let us take time this month to focus on what has united and unites us, and RISE above what is trying to divide and separate us.
Love you ALL!

I heard these words as I was awakening the other morning “There is a New World Order coming, but it is MY ORDER says the Lord. Things are coming into ALIGNMENT; things are being RESTORED the way I always intended for it to be”. Our country is being restored, Our country’s finances are being restored, Our families are being restored, Souls are being restored, Our health is being restored and Our finances are being restored.
I want to encourage EVERYONE not to lose HEART not to lose FAITH and not to lose HOPE. Great and Mighty things are on the Horizon.

Many are saying “NOW WHAT?
It looks like darkness has won and we have been defeated! To some it looks like the Lord has forsaken us! Well HE MOST CERTAINLY HAS NOT!
I’m reminded of the prophet Daniel. Daniel had an EXCELLENT spirit and the king gave thought to setting him over the whole realm of the kingdom. There were other leaders of the kingdom which consisted of all the governors, the administration, the satraps, the counselors and the advisors; which they were all very jealous of Daniel and began to plot against him to destroy him. Daniel was a praying man who prayed 3 times a day to the true and living God. The plot that the jealous and evil wicked leaders made against him was that they consulted together to establish a royal statute and to make a firm decree, that whoever petitioned any god or man for thirty days, except the king shall be cast into the den of lions. The king signed the writing. Daniel was not moved by what was done. He went home and with his windows open, prayed to his true and living God like he had before. When the evil and wicked leaders found Daniel praying, they told the king. The king’s heart was broken because he loved Daniel, but because he signed the decree, he had to follow through with it. They cast Daniel Into the den of lions.
It seemed like the evil, wicked and dark men had won! It seemed like darkness gained the victory, but the Lord was with Daniel. The Lord shut the lion’s mouths. The lions were unable to hurt Daniel. Because Daniel trusted in the Lord, he was delivered from being eaten up by the lions.
The evil and wicked men that plotted against Daniel to destroy him were brought before the king, and the king had those men thrown into the den of lions. The lions destroyed those men. (Daniel 6:1-28)
There has been many evil and wicked men that have plotted against our country for decades to destroy it. It seems like they have won. It seems like darkness has prevailed, BUT IT HAS NOT!! God is with us like he was with Daniel.
DO NOT EVER ALLOW TIME TO DETERMINE DEFEAT! We have already won!
Just like our God shut the lion’s mouth for Daniel, He will shut the mouths of those that speak lies against President Trump our COUNTRY and you. (Psalms 63:11)

Benjamin Rush, a signer of the Declaration of Independence, wrote in a letter to Thomas Jefferson:
I have always considered Christianity as the strong ground of republicanism. The spirit is opposed, not only to the splendor, but even to the very forms of monarchy, and many of its precepts have for their object’s republican liberty and equality as well as simplicity, integrity, and economy in government. It is only necessary for republicanism to ally itself to the Christian religion to overturn ALL the corrupted political and religious institutions in the world.
(II Peter 2:19)
I want to encourage and urge all pastors, all teachers, all leaders, all Christians and ALL people to educate and continue to educate the truths of these words.
Christianity IS NOT a DENOMINATION, but it is the Kingdom of God! (Christ taught the kingdom of God) (Matthew 6:33)
