Holy Ghost You are welcomed and needed in our lives. Make rhema to and for us these words that I write that are from You. In Jesus Name be it done to us according to our faith.
For a very long time in my life I lived as a wimp. I was passive about what I wanted from myself, life and others. I took what I got and gave what I wanted. I didn’t esteem myself  when I was being rejected and criticized. I didn’t love and care for myself against the lies from the world that I wasn’t good enough. For a very long time even without anyone in my life knowing it I felt most everyone (people I knew and people I didn’t) were in some way going to disappoint or reject me. I wasn’t able to give love and most often not able to receive love. The saddest part was that no one could see what I was going with me  especially ME. For the last couple of days God has been dealing with me to truly realize and fully walk in the fact that I have a warrior spirit. I am not a wimp. I am a fighter. That truth inside of me has been challenged by the enemy, the world, and myself  for a very long time in life. Then I came to know the truth and I drew a line in the sand. I know today my authority and power is not based on how I feel, or how impossible the situation looks. Nothing is impossible with God. I use to say I am non confrontational person. But the truth I not only confront what is NOT true about me and life but I STAND against  everything and everyone that tries to challenge, mock, diminish and especially destroy my freedom and victory. The negative attitude and the spirit of misery that use to surround me I NOW fight with the blood of Jesus to keep them out of my life. Change is coming and right noe the day is coming that they will get it that they are no longer or ever wanted in my life.  We want our Christian lives to be spent open a cruiseship when for some of us God has called us to be on a battleship. A good fight is the kind of fight that YOU win. So when Paul tells Timothy to fight the good fight of faith he knows its a good fight because its a fight we can and will win. John 16:11 writes that the ruler of this world [satan] is judged, condemned and sentence already is passed upon him.
YOU WIN. YOU WIN. YOU WIN. In the name of Jesus I decree & declare that the spirit of disappointment with the effects & influences of defeat and failure is cast down in my (and YOUR) life. Deut. 20:4  writes that For the Lord your God is the one who goes with you to fight for you against your enemies to you victory. 
1 Cor. 15:57 promises to us believers  But thanks be to God! He gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. Don’t give up and don’t give to the schemes and tactics of the your defeated enemy. You have power over all his power and nothing shall by any means hurt you. You will only lose your victory is you give up on it. Be Blessed Manie

When a person receives salvation and starts to live according to kingdom principles after a while it seems like you are living in an alternate universe. Family, friends, strangers sometimes even fellow believers can see the plans and purposes that God has put inside of you that you are now starting to walk out in the natural. I am aware that we are just like my  Savior I am not of the world but only in the world. (John 17:14). That means that we as believers should not be acting like others that don’t profess to be a believer in the Son of God Jesus Christ. They see then believe. We believe in order to see. The world says 3 strikes and your out. Jesus says when someone sins against you we must forgive seventy times seven. We understand that in God’s kingdom the first will be last and the last will be first. We don’t have to scam, plot and step on people to get to the top because we have been promised according to the  Word of God that we will be prosperous and successful when we meditate on His word day and night. We don’t depend on the approval and validation of man because we believe if God be for us, then who would dare be against us. There is no need to ever be depressed, discouraged and dismayed because we are promised that all things work together for our good. Those promises are true. They are the truth and when we speak them out of mouth and with belief in our heart we will walk in the victory that has been available for us.
I get excited in belief and expectancy because of the promises from the Word of God. I believe in God. I believe in his promises given to us like the one in Zechariah 9:12 that writes Come back to the place of safety all you prisoners who still have hope! I promise this very day that I will repay two blessing for each of your troubles. In your everyday living many people are not in the habit of expecting the supernatural or the miraculous. Yet the bible says For everything there is a season, and a time for every activity under the heaven. I speak by prophetic declaration as it is written in 2 Cor.6:2  NOW is time of God’s favor and NOW is the day of salvation. I receive the fullness of this promise for today in the Name of Jesus. Speak and act in faith and receive it for yourself. Remember in this upside down and inside out world what is impossible with man is possible with God. Be Blessed. Manie

Do you deserve it?

Without realizing it we become accustomed to the life we are living. We become comfortable with living from paycheck to paycheck. We are familiar with destructive relationships, jobs that suck, bodies that are not performing they way they were meant because we abuse them nicotine, alcohol, drugs and junk food. We are so comfortable with misery that it doesn’s even seem like misery anymore. Its just life and we deal with it. We squeeze in some fun here and there but most of the time its NOT the life we imagined or ever wanted for ourselves. One day watching a christian tv program about dreaming big dreams it dawned on me that I didn’t have to stay STUCK in the life I was living. Like most everything it all started with a decision. I changed my mind-set about me and my life. I wanted more. A lot more. I deserved the best. I was not living in my true identity as a child of God. Romans 8:17 says Now if we are children, then we are heirs- heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory. I have said it before and I will say it again You are a child of the King. The promises of God to Abraham are carried over to us under the New Covenant that according to Gal. 3:29 If you belong to Christ, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise. If you don’t know what God promised Abraham then read it in Genesis 12:2-3.
If you are like me then maybe you grew up in an enviroment that didn’t celebrate you or maybe at the most you accepted just being tolerated. Getting older it then became easier to see yourself as a flop, a failure and to attract people and situations that pretty much were in agreement with what YOU thought and what YOU said to yourself. It took a long time of staring at the truth before I really saw the truth. When indeed I knew the truth and continued in the truth made me free. I must admit that staying is free is something I still have to choose. Maybe your situation and circumstances are not so detrimental that YOU desire to have more of what Christ has made available to you. Maybe you think things are not bad or even that some people have it worse so you don’t want to be selfish in wanting more. I know that there are people that have it worse off than me and I pray that the Holy Spirit comes to them with the same revelation knowledge that Christ came to me with that we may have life and have it more abundantly. That being said I am determined that I want and will have all that God means for me to have in my life. I will in all I do  Seek first the kingdom of heaven and all things will be added unto me. In my learning, growing, developing I want to share it with everyone that I can. So I speak in the name and authority as a believer in Jesus Christ that YOU deserve to have the life YOU want and may have never thought to possible. Even if know no ever told you that or even if you never believed it to be possible accept that the fact today that everything is possible for YOU that believes. We are overcomers. We are mountain movers. We are kingdom people. Stop accepting the small things in life. It doesn’t fit. My Bishops says average is just the top of the bottom. I pray that the favor of God surround you. I pray that the blessing of the Lord overtake you. Be Blessed. Manie

Before you can effectively begin to receive and walk in the promises of God and see them materialize and manifest in your life there are certain things you have to settle in your heart. It has to be settled that God indeed wants you to be success, prosperous and happy. We find in fact that it is written in 3 John 1:2 (Amp)  Beloved, I pray that you may prosper in every way and [that your body] may keep well, even as [I know] your soul keeps well and prospers. Some of the scriptures I speak of may be ones that you are well acquainted with but it does YOU well to meditate and speak them again. And Again. Receive them in fullness with the power of the Holy Ghost over your mind. The book of Jeremiah in the 29th chapter is a letter sent by the Prophet Jeremiah to the exiled people in Babylon from Jerusalem. . The message from God through the prophet Jeremiah to the people was one of hope and encouragement. The Lord Himself reveals in the 11th verse to the people For I know the plans I have for you, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Like most others I has read those words and the other good news in the bible but the promises of God seemed so far stretched from the life I was actually living. I was reading them but they weren’t producing results in my life. It wasn’t until I was really FED up with the life I was living that I was ready to do ANYTHING to have the life God meant for me. First I made a decision to get saved and lived saved. I was going all the way with Christ and for Christ. At the point that I surrendered all then became willing to study, pray and heed the voice and direction of the Lord. I then learned that in Christ I was anointed which meant I had power to do all He wanted me to do. I receive in truth that I had authority. Real authority and power and I made a decision that  would be powerful and not pitiful. I would take responsibility for my life and what I wanted to be  and not keep blaming others for what I didnt have. I would be diligent in cancelling the lies of the enemy and receiving truth from God. The Lord told Joshua and the words are still the same for us today in the 1st book of Joshua for us to be strong and courageous and NOT to terrified or discouraged. God has promised us that He the Lord our God will be with us wherever we go. I believe for others as it has been for me that the devil keeps you focused on the failures of the past so that you will not look for and expect the success of your  future.  Unlike most of us who truly don’t know it or maybe we just don’t believe it  the devil knows he is defeated so his main tactic of is to get the believer to doubt the goodness and greatness of the Lord..

It has to be settled in your soul, spirit and body  that no matter what it looked like in the past or even now in your current situations that we serve a God {Eph. 2:20) who is willing and able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work within us. My question to you today is are you asking Him?  1 John 5: 14-15 writes to us that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that he hears us- whatever as ask- we know that we have what we have asked of Him. Maybe you are you wondering if your specific prayer request is in His will for you? If that is your question read His word and find your promise covered in His word. When you find it in His word and then pray it, confess it and receive it for yourself. So many times we are afraid to go boldy before God with what we want for fear that He doesn’t want the same for us. I have heard so many people who don’t pray specifically they  just say Lord if its your will . When it comes to our personal desires and plans for life Psalm 20 verses 4-5 says May He (GOD) give you the desire of your heart  and make all your plans succeed. We are the sheep of Jesus and we know His voice. God trusts us that as His vessels who are in relationship with Him that we won’t come to Him asking for anything that would not ultimately glorify Him. Colossians 1:9 has Paul saying For this reason, since the day we heard about you, we have not stopped praying for you and asking God to fill you with knowledge of His will through all spiritual wisdom and understanding. As a believer You can never receive the richness and the goodness of the promises of the Lord if you NEVER truly understand and know that He has them for you and wants to give them to you.
It settled in my spirit and soul NOW and FOREVER that God is for me and there can not EVER be anyone against me. It settled that no weapon formed against me shall prosper and no matter what I go through I am always victorious. When we are so afraid of going to God with the big dreams and big desires we then feel excused from ever expecting them come to pass.
One of the most important changes I had to go through was to let go of my LOW GRADE MENTALITY. My thinking had me on my worst day expecting disaster and on my best day settling for mediocrity. I didn’t even know that I could pray big, bold prayers but when I finally did it was at the same time that my faith and expectancy was there to receive my promises.
Don’t get me wrong in thinking the process will be easy especially when all you have even known is defeat, failure or just getting by in life. In Genesis 18 when God is telling Abraham that Sarah who well past the age to have a child would in fact have son the next year she overheard and laughed. I am sure there are some who think my big dreams are funny. Maybe even now  ts hilarious to think that God can turn your own life around but like He said to Sarah I now say to you. IS ANYTHING TO HARD FOR GOD?
Be Blessed. MANIE

God loves YOU!

Invite the Holy Spirit into your presence so that you may receive the revelation of these words that God intended for you. Read these words and receive life.

I woke up this morning praying what WORD from the Lord I needed to share and I thought about what I myself was in need of hearing and it was this God loves me. In the name, authority and anointing of Jesus Christ I speak today into your spirit, your life, your situations and your problems that the God our Father loves You. His love means He is for YOU.

It is written in Psalm 143:8 Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love, for I have put my trust in you. Show me the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul. There are times and seasons in our lives where the things and people that use to be just enough for us to cope no longer are. Whether it be good distractions or bad habits we have had enough of just hanging on. That is when we need to speak out loud to ourselves that God loves me. The love of God made available to us through His son Jesus is NOT just some feel good message or positive affirmation. The word of God is alive. When we speak it in true belief the chains and yokes of rejection, disappointment, hurts and misery and negativity HAVE to let us go. What people have done to us CAN’T compare to have Christ has done for us. Again there is mention in the word that says the love of God won’t and can’t fail us. Isaiah 54:10 (NIV) Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my UNFAILING love for you will not be shaken nor will my covenant of peace be removed,” says the Lord who has compassion on you. Two things this scripture promises is that the mountains and hill can be knocked down (be it by erosion, earthquakes, whatever) but no amount of sin, rebellion, or rejection can shake away the love God has for you. Do you believe that today? Believe it because it is the truth. Let that truth and not the lies of the world be YOUR reality. You are loved by God our Father and Jesus Christ whether you feel loved or not. When you see the price Jesus Christ paid  with the crucifixion then it  gives you a FULL VIEW of the real demonstration of love. I encourage you to read John 18-20 and take YOUR time and take in the words and eyes of your heart what our Savior went through for me and you.  How then can a harsh word for him or neglect from them cause us to doubt the worth and love we have in Christ.

I know today more than I have ever known WHO I am and WHOSE I am. I am a child of the King. I am a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His wonderful light.  I am redeemed, forgiven and set free. There are no standing charges against me with the devil and any other evil principality. I am more than a conqueror THROUGH Him who loved me. I pray today that you receive the fullness and freedom of that truth as well. Be Blessed. Manie

Hello All…

With the state of the world, the economy,  and life in general I felt the CALL FROM GOD  to provide a place of edification, comfort and especially encouragement for the chosen people of God. There maybe occassions when I write my own personal beliefs and convictions based on the Word and some people not agree with it and that is ok.  I trust that the people God sends here will find a WORD that has been sent for them from HIM. I am not the kind of person who pushes their beliefs on others but I am BOLD enough to say and I know that MY way is THE way.  John 14: 6 (NIV) Jesus answered, ” I am the way, and the truth and the life. No one comes through the Father except through me.
I am a christian. A believer in God the Father, God the Son,  and God the Holy Ghost. I believe that the bible is living Holy Ghost inspired word of God written through the hand of men. I may not be able to explain and as of yet understand every part of it but still I believe it ALL.  I take it all by FAITH. In my faith I also believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God who was crucified on the cross for the sins and redemption of all. I believe that He was brought back to life through the power of God Almighty who gave to Him all authority in heaven and on earth. I agree that as a believer in Christ I have been given by Him that same power and authority. I am believe that the Messiah is coming back again. You get the definitation of FAITH in Hebrews 11:1  as being sure of what we hope for and certain of what we do not see.  My entire relationship with God and  His son Jesus and the Holy Spirit is based on my faith that  everything I believe in Him and about Him is the absolute TRUTH.
 I am indeed an anointed woman of God who has heard the voice of the Lord to me to instruct, build up, and heal the believers in the body of Christ with the wisdom, revelation & understanding as God makes it available to me. I am not perfect, I make mistakes, I have taken my fair share of falls then and sometimes now but I have receieved the comission from Jesus Christ in Matthew 28:18-20  Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age. Be Blessed, Manie
