I wrote the content on this blog with sincere and holy intentions with the knowledge that I had at the time... We live, learn and errors are exposed and more truths are revealed...

Only GOD is perfect. It's vital that you seek the Lord to expose any errors that you've embraced. Please ask Him to expose any areas of darkness to you and for what is necessary to do to dispossess what's NOT of truth.



Flames of fire dance joyfully as dreams of fervor conjure up images of red hot passion for the gusto of life.

Sizzle, spark, explode -

Fireballs light up the sky. Wow! a thunder flash with a clap -

The flames are vivid with the awesome glow of orange colors blended with yellow highlights that accent the blaze.

This display is the bomb torched with a rocket plan. Such rapture has lit our fire. We are dynamite on this journey.

Come on fire, fall on us. Pour your liquid potency. Ignite our souls that we may be engulfed with magnified intensity.

Blow up our hearts. Dance with us....

Scriptures are from the King James Bible.

Satan is rabid for souls.  He clamors to gain ground in his kingdom of darkness.  Regularly, his din is heard.  He's often a noisy diabolical villain. The noise of evil purposes to devour.

1 Peter 5:8
Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour.

There are satanic moves that cause violence, discord, unrest, commotion, chaos, and bedlam.  Ultimately, some people will surely be devoured by the evil strong holds that grip with demonic viciousness.

What's all that noise?! 

It's the noise of the devil fighting with malicious vigor to win souls and to keep ensnared those who have pledged allegiance to him.  It's the noise of terror, haunting images, ghastly deceptions, and horrific episodes crafted by the cunning god of this world.

2 Corinthians 4:4
In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.

But Oh glory!  There is a ROCK answer for those who steadfastly turn to GOD.

Zechariah 1:3
...Turn ye unto me, saith the Lord of hosts, and I will turn unto you,...

Psalm 18:2
The Lord is my rock, and my fortress, and my deliverer; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my buckler, and the horn of my salvation, and my high tower.

What's that I hear?!

"...for there is a sound of abundance of rain." - 1 Kings 18:41.

Marshal the troops. 

The Lord GOD Almighty speaks:

Ref: My saints who are wholly armored according to Ephesians 6:11-19

For the year 2012 and beyond, you are rendered unshakeable and unmoved from the hope of the gospel.

Hebrews 12:27, 28
And this word, Yet once more, signifieth the removing of those things that are shaken, as of things that are made, that those things which cannot be shaken may remain.

Wherefore we receiving a kingdom which cannot be moved, let us have grace, whereby we may serve God acceptably with reverence and godly fear;

Colossians 1:23
If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel, which ye have heard,...     

Cast not your pearls before swine - Matthew 7:6.

Yes, Satan makes much noise, but remember that he is as a roaring lion.  1 Peter 5:8 says about him, " a roaring lion."  You, My saints, dwell and abide in the Lion of the tribe of Juda, Jesus the Christ, who prevails! - Revelation 5:5  

Yes, there is spiritual wickedness in high places, but they do NOT dwell in the highest places.  That's where I AM.  It doesn't get higher than I AM.  Keep dwelling, My people, in the secret place of the most High - Psalm 91:1I AM greater than all of the noise, clamor, discord, commotion and bedlam. 

Psalm 140:7
O God the Lord, the strength of my salvation, thou hast covered my head in the day of battle.

Remember the ten virgins in Matthew 25Five were wise and five were foolish.  Keep oil in your lamps as did the five wise virgins for you know not when the SON of man shall appear.

You are charged to teach others how to be about full gospel truths.  Steadfastly, live holy so that others will yearn for the love, peace and joy that you so righteously and faithfully exhibit.  My Word says in 1 John 2:15 "Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world.  If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him."

Consistently, think the truth, hear the truth, speak the truth and DO the truth.  Certainly, I shall reward integrity, credibility and excellence in character.   

I have chosen select warriors and soldiers who shall not faint in  adversity, and none shall make you afraid.  Nothing shall separate you from the love of GOD - Romans 8:39.  My missions shall successfully be accomplished through the power of GOD that I have invested in you.  Go forth in excellence, and destroy the works of the devil, subdue his wiles, and pull down wicked strong holds.  I shall work with you confirming My words with signs following - Mark 16:20.

You shall retain fresh anointing.  The yokes are destroyed because of the anointing - Isaiah 10:27.     

Joel 2:7-11
They shall run like mighty men; they shall climb the wall like men of war; and they shall march every one on his ways, and they shall not break their ranks.

Neither shall one thrust another; they shall walk every one in his path: and when they fall upon the sword, they shall not be wounded.

They shall run to and fro in the city; they shall run upon the wall, they shall climb up upon their houses; they shall enter in at the windows like a thief.

The earth shall quake before them; the heavens shall tremble: the sun and the moon shall be dark, and the stars shall withdraw their shining:

And the Lord shall utter his voice before his army: for his camp is very great: for he is strong that executeth his word: for the day of the Lord is great and very terrible; and who can abide it?

Ezekiel 37:10
So I prophesied as he commanded me, and the breath came into them, and they lived, and stood up upon their feet, an exceeding great army.

Luke 18:1
And he spake a parable unto them to this end, that men ought always to pray and not to faint;

Zephaniah 3:13
The remnant of Israel shall not do iniquity, nor speak lies; neither shall a deceitful tongue be found in their mouth: for they shall feed and lie down, and none shall make them afraid.  

Victory for you for 2012 and beyond.  That's a promise from the Greatest promise keeper, Your Father, Your Shepherd, and Your Most Holy LOVER!

Scriptures are from the King James Bible.

Of course, the answer to the question is, no GOD does not lie.  

Titus 1:2
In hope of eternal life, which God, which cannot lie, promised before the world began.

Proverbs 6:16-19
These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:

A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,

An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,

A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.

Colossians 3:9
Lie not one to another,...

Psalm 101:7
He that worketh deceit shall not dwell within my house: he that telleth lies shall not tarry in my sight.

Proverbs 14:5
A faithful witness will not lie: but a false witness will utter lies.

Revelation 21:27
And there shall no wise enter into it any thing that defileth, neither whatsoever worketh abomination, or maketh a lie: but they which are written in the Lamb's book of life.

Revelation 21:8
But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone:...   


Lord, we who are called by Your name, are commanded to be truth thinkers, truth speakers, and truth doers.  We need to be credible, faithful, dependable, reliable and indeed true to our words.   You, Father, are absolute truth.  You have called us to represent You in honorable ways.  No, we cannot be perfect.  Only You have claim to perfection.  But surely, we can steadfastly aim to be people who live truth.  Otherwise, how dare we profess that You are our Father.  Certainly, You are the Father of truth.  Your Holy Bible says this about who is the father of lies:

John 8:44
Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do.  He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him.  When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.    

Lord, we need to draw nigh to You so that we can successfully resist the devil and his evil ways.  We can only conquer when we abide in You, Your Son Jesus, and Your Holy Ghost.  Without You, we can do nothing.  

John 15:5
I am the vine, ye are the branches: He that abideth in me, and I in him, the same bringeth forth much fruit: for without me, ye can do nothing.   

Thank You, Lord, that You allow all to breathe Your air.  We owe You ALL of us, Father, so says Your Word in Mark 12:30, "And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment."  Our lives are not our own to do as we please for You are the Creator of all that breathes. You command that we steadfastly do Your will if we expect to please You, and to reap the benefits of living Your full gospel truths.  

Zechariah 1:3
...Turn ye unto me, saith the Lord of hosts, and I will turn unto you,...

John 10:10
..I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.

Recently, I have focused more on how I need to change relative to having the mind of Christ and conforming to His glorious image.  In particular, I had concerns about the unrighteousness of someone dear to me.  Our Lord shared with me something like, "When you make some attitude changes, you'll notice some changes in him."  Well, I've been working more, in earnest, on doing that, folks.  And you know what?!  I've noticed some changes in that dear one in my life.  One day recently this unrighteous man was here in my home.  He said to me something like, "The spirit of the Lord is in this place."  I was more than a bit surprised to hear him say that.  Glory to GOD.    

This a.m. in my intimacy time with our Lord, He shared with me that sometimes we frustrate the grace of GOD.  He desires that we not do such because it's an insult to Him and it impedes us in our service to the Lord.    

Galatians 2:21
For I do not frustrate the grace of God: for if righteousness come by the law, then Christ is dead in vain.

We are commissioned by our Lord to have pure hearts and to be holy as He is holy.  Those are Holy Bible mandates - not suggestions.

1 Timothy 5:22
...keep thyself pure.

Ephesians 1:4
According as he hath chosen us in him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before him in love:

1 Corinthians 10:21
Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord's table, and of the table of devils.

Revelation 22:7
Behold, I come quickly: blessed is he that keepeth the sayings of the prophecy of this book.

Revelation 22:14, 15
Blessed are they that do his commandments, that they may have right to the tree of life, and may enter in through the gates into the city.

For without are dogs, and sorcerers, and whoremongers, and murderers, and idolaters, and whosoever loveth and maketh a lie.

Revelation 3:16
So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.

Revelation 2:5
Remember therefore from whence thou art fallen, and repent, and do the first works; or else I will come unto thee quickly, and will remove thy candlestick out of his place, except thou repent.

Revelation 2:10 thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.

Ephesians 1:7
In whom we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of his grace;


Lord, increasingly, Christianity has taken credibility hits.  Some of it is our fault, Lord.  Please reveal to us where we fall short so that we can put concentration on the areas where we aren't meeting Your holy expectations.

Your anointing flows powerfully and Your actions manifest to the uttermost  when channeled through holy hearts.  Holiness changes climates, Lord, and has major impact on hearts, minds, and bodies.  The Acts 17:6 says, "...These that have turned the world upside down are come hither also;"  I'm convinced, Lord, that the "these" were holy people...  Help us, please Lord, to wholly follow You so that, increasingly, yokes can be destroyed in accordance with Your words in Isaiah 10:27, "...and the yoke shall be destroyed because of the anointing."

Thank You, Lord - Amen

Then the Lord put forth his hand, and touched my mouth.  And the Lord said unto me, Behold, I have put my words in thy mouth.

See, I have this day set thee over the nations and over the kingdoms, to root out, and to pull down, and to destroy and to throw down, to build, and to plant.

Scriptures are from the King James Bible.

Three days this week our Lord manifested through me with triumphant victories over Satan.  We know that Satan hates GOD and all that He represents.  And we know that the devil is going to fight, but He cannot win over GOD.

Jeremiah 1:19
And they shall fight against thee; but they shall not prevail against thee; for I am with thee, saith the Lord, to deliver thee.

Those that do evil are keeping their appointments.

1 Peter 2:8
And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of offence, even to them which be disobedient whereunto also they were appointed.

Of course, we know that some of those who defy GOD shall repent and amend their ways just as we did.  But also, we know that all people will not be saved.  That is Holy Bible truth. Proverbs 29:1 says, "He that being often reproved hardeneth his neck, shall suddenly be destroyed, and that without remedy."

We are mandated by our Lord to love and to forgive.  Also, though, we are mandated by GOD to be wise and discerning.  Our Lord informs us of who to engage with and who to avoid...

When we are determined to be holy, surely, more persecution is the result.  We can evolve to spiritual levels where none of those things move us.  The Acts 20:24 says, "But none of these things move me,..."

We are appointed.

1 Thessalonians 3:3
That no man should be moved by these afflictions: for yourselves know that we are appointed thereunto.

There is NOTHING that Satan has that is able to overthrow or conquer GOD.  It ain't happening - EVER!

After the victories that our Lord gave me this week, today, in retaliation, Satan splashed water on me.  Later I began to dwell on that demonic attack.  Our Lord told me to keep it in perspective.  And He made me laugh about it when He said this, "Yes, Satan splashed water on you, Sandra, but he had to use MY water."  When put in perspective...I count it all joy.

On a more serious note, our Lord also said this, "They foolishly believe that they are winning. They have a false sense of security.  I'll cause it to crumble.  All that they rely on shall fail them..."

Fear not - GOD will avenge...that IS a certainty and a solid ROCK promise from the Most High Good GOD Almighty!  For some, our Lord's vengeance will come suddenly...

Fear not, holy people of GOD, fret not, worry not - whatsoever is not of faith is sin. - Romans 14:23.  GOD is the everlasting light.  Our Lord's kingdom has no end and ALL dominions shall serve and obey Him.

My prayer is that more will get saved and delivered from being servants of sin.  May GOD help us all.

Scriptures are from the King James Bible.

This morning as I did my daily Bible intimacy with our Lord, He spoke and said to me, "Satan is playing mind games with you.  His aim is to intimidate you with his mind games.  Beat him at his mind games."

Later this a.m., our Lord reminded me that I have the mind of Christ.

1 Corinthians 2:16
...But we have the mind of Christ.

Also, our Lord reminded me that I'm possessed.  Certainly, not possessed by the devil but possessed by Almighty Most High GOD!

Proverbs 8:22
The Lord possessed me in the beginning of his way, before his works of old. 

According to our Lord, that wasn't enough because He goes on to inform that the saints possess the kingdom.

Daniel 7:22
Until the Ancient of days came, and judgment ws given to the saints of the most High; and the time came that the saints possessed the kingdom. 

Matthew 6:10
Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.

Luke 17:21
...for, behold, the kingdom of God is within you.

In addition, we have witnesses.

1 John 5:9
If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater:...  

Hebrews 12:1
Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses,...

Joshua 24:27
And Joshua said unto all the people, Behold, this stone shall be a witness unto us; for it hath heard all the words of the Lord which he spake unto us; It shall be therefore a witness unto you,...

For those who are in tenacious intimacy with GOD, Satan ain't running nothing but out of time.

I heard a pastor say, "Dogs don't bark at parked cars."  So if Satan ain't barking...people are parked.  Our Lord didn't choose us to park - for such is spiritually unprofitable and a disgraceful representation.  GOD chose us to move forward in the holy name of JESUS.

As I write this, our Lord spoke and stated that some of His people are growing weary of unanswered prayers.  Foremost, He says, "2 Corinthians 13:5, 'Examine yourselves, whether ye be in the faith; prove your own selves.'  And then, remember tenacity, diligence, and persistence."

How many times did Naaman wash in the Jordan before he was cleansed of leprosy? - 2 Kings 5.  How many times did they march before the walls of Jericho fell? - Joshua 6.  How many times did Elijah tell the servant to go before the abundance of rain fell? - 1 Kings 18.  We are told to forgive seventy times seven. - Matthew 18.  We must prevail, persist, and commit to remain rooted and grounded in our Lord - yes, grounded and settled indeed.  Our prayers should consistently have a posture of "Thy will be done, Lord."  That is how our Lord JESUS prayed when He was in agony.  We are commanded to have the mind of Christ.

Romans 3:3,4
For what if some did not believe?  shall their unbelief make the faith of God without effect? 

God forbid: yea, let God be true, but every man a liar;...

Daniel 3:17, 18
If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us out of thine hand, O king.

But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we will not serve thy gods, nor worship the golden image which thou hast set up.

Daniel 6:20-22
And when he came to the den, he cried with a lamentable voice unto Daniel: and the king spake and said to Daniel, O Daniel, servant of the living God, is thy God, whom thou servest continually, able to deliver thee from the lions?

Then said Daniel unto the king, O king, live for ever.

My God hath sent his angel, and hath shut the lions' mouths, they have not hurt me: forasmuch as before him innocency was found in me; and also before thee, O king, have I done no hurt.

Ephesians 3:17
That Christ may dwell in your hearts by faith; that ye, being rooted and grounded in love,

Colossians 1:23
If ye continue in the faith grounded and settled, and be not moved away from the hope of the gospel,...

1 Kings 19:18
...all the knees which have not bowed unto Baal, and every mouth which hath not kissed him.
