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 version.

Spiritually, I'm in route to a period of personal consecration with our Lord.  One main purpose for it is to be more in His presence to discover what needs to be changed within me.

Recently, I asked our Lord something like, "What is the gospel of Your kingdom?"  One answer that He gave me is "King dominion - I AM the King and it is My dominion."  He further told me that His people need to focus on being about King dominion here on this, His earth.  I heard a pastor share that too many Christians are focused on "When we get to heaven, we'll have the victory."  He stated that we need to focus on having victories before we get to heaven.  Our purpose is to bring heaven to earth.  We don't need to wait.  We can have King dominion now!  The Holy Bible says in Matthew 6:10, "Thy kingdom come, Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven." 

Last night I heard a pastor say, "Don't let the devil ride or he'll want to drive."  And I heard another pastor say that we are trained to reign and that we are to have supernatural dispositions.

Later I read these Scriptures:

Romans 8:27
...mind of the Spirit,...

The Acts 18:24
...mighty in the scriptures,...

Psalm 25:21
Let integrity and uprightness preserve me; for I wait on thee.

Proverbs 28:13
He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy. 

Exodus 15:7
And in the greatness of thine excellency thou hast overthrown them that rose up against thee:... 

Exodus 15:11
Who is like unto thee, O Lord, among the gods? who is like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders?


Glorious Father GOD, thank You for the gospel of Your kingdom.  Please teach us, Lord, to do the desires of Your heart and that is to do kingdom living.  

Thank You, Lord - Amen.

Scriptures are from the King James Bible.

Our Lord has been sharing with me about authority and laughter. When we are operate in holiness, indeed we have authority over all that is of the devil. Yes, Satan keeps his appointments to persecute us.  But when we know WHOSE we are we can laugh at the devil.

That's Bible, folks.  Psalm 52:6 says, "The righteous also shall see, and fear, and shall laugh at him:" 

John 19:11
Jesus answered, Thou couldest have no power at all against me, except it were given thee from above:...

This week our Lord gave me a focus about laughter.  He told me to look up scriptures that contain the word laugh.  Funny, how after His laugh instruction, someone forwarded an e-mail to me.  The content was a message that contained these words, "LAUGHTER IS GOOD FOR THE SOUL."

Some folks don't laugh enough.  Storms arrive in all our lives but we can laugh, regardless.  

Also, our Lord shared that one of the ways that our authority over the devil can be shown is when we laugh in the midst of tribulation.  Surely, our righteous laughter doesn't please Satan but it does please our Lord.  

Certainly, sometimes we'll grieve and weep but more laughter needs to be in the equations.  That's Bible 
truth - ha ha!

John 16:33
These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace.  In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

Proverbs 17:22
A merry heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones.

Luke 9:1
...and gave them power and authority over all devils,...

Luke 10:19
Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy:...

Job 5:22
At destruction and famine thou shalt laugh: neither shalt thou be afraid...

Psalm 37:12, 13
The wicked plotteth against the just,...

The Lord shall laugh at him: for he seeth that his day is coming.

Psalm 2:4
He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.

Luke 6:21
...for ye shall laugh.

Job 8:21
Till he fill thy mouth with laughing, and thy lips with rejoicing.

Psalm 126:2
Then was  our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing: then said they among the heathen, The Lord hath done great things for them.

Psalm 105:24
And he increased his people greatly; and made them stronger than their enemies.


Dear Father GOD, please help us to use Your authority and Your righteous laughter to glorify You and to advance the gospel of Your kingdom.  Please save people from their perverse and deceived lives so that they can join us in holy authority and laughter.

Thank You, Lord - Amen.

Scriptures are from the King James Bible.

I didn't have a blog post planned until I read a message on Facebook this evening.  The messenger, Ms. D.B., stated, among other things, that GOD is angry.  Her message struck me strongly because our Lord had shared similar information with me.  Prior to going to Facebook to read, our Lord led me to read two chapters from the Holy Bible and then to pray.

GOD has been dealing with the matter of integrity and credibility.  He shared that He's weary of the lack of integrity, especially relative to those who claim to be His followers.  Our Lord emphasized that it's a major issue with Him.  After I read the Bible and prayed, the Spirit led me to look up the word integrity. 

I asked our Lord whether I'm wrong for not respecting people who don't keep their words, especially those who profess Christ as Savior.  He assured me that I'm not wrong; He expressed that He doesn't respect them either.  Of course, He loves and forgives.  It's mandatory that Bible doers love and forgive, as well.  Certainly, we all need forgiveness when we falter.  But increasingly, I'm less inclined to engage with people who lack integrity, and those who give lip service but their actions don't support what's expressed.

Indeed, we're all works in progress but we need to change and focus more on what pleases our Lord and less on what pleases our flesh.  We have unique challenges and struggles but we cannot afford to keep making excuses rather than positive changes.  Our Lord is longsuffering but His longsuffering does have expiration dates.  Daily in my prayer times, I ask our Lord to help me to change.  He doesn't desire that we resign ourselves to holding on to sin.  We must steadfastly aim to keep our flesh under subjection.  Making vain excuses does not result in victories in the Spirit.     

We can examine ourselves and ask, "Are we steadfastly giving our Lord what He expects of us?"  Do we need to grow up and stop milk diets?  Has our Lord told us to be meat eaters and we resist?
Hebrews 5:12 states, "For when for the time ye ought to be teachers, ye have need that one teach you again which be the first principles of the oracles of God; and are become such as have need of milk, and not of strong meat."  Do we want master degree results with kindergarten conduct?  

This morning I watched Bishop T.D. Jakes.  His message was "Betrayal always leaves clues."  That spoke volumes!

Tonight, the Spirit had these passages to leap off the pages to me:

Proverbs 11:1
A false balance is abomination to the Lord: but a just weight is his delight. 

Proverbs 11:3
The integrity of the upright shall guide them: but the perverseness of transgressors shall destroy them.  

Proverbs 11:6
The righteousness of the upright shall deliver them: but transgressors shall be taken in their own naughtiness.

Proverbs 11:18
The wicked worketh a deceitful work: but to him that soweth righteousness shall be a sure reward.

Proverbs 11:25
The liberal soul shall be made fat: and he that watereth shall be watered himself.

Also, our Lord gave me Proverbs 19:22, "...and a poor man is better than a liar."


Lord please forgive us for our lack of steadfastness and for making vain excuses.  We need to be righteous and credible and people of honor.  When we're above reproach, we glorify You.  Help us to submit to You, Lord so that we can resist the devil.  Yokes are destroyed because of Your anointing.  The Holy Bible says in Psalm 66:18, "If I regard iniquity in my heart, the Lord will not hear me:"  We need to be righteous to successfully impact and to be about Your full gospel business and the advancement of Your kingdom.  We need to obey how You lead us to change for Your good pleasure.  We must decrease and allow You to increase within us - John 3:30.

Thank You, Lord - Amen

Scriptures are from the King James Bible.

This week our Lord has emphasized to me peace and holiness.  Also, He requested that I remind His people not to be discouraged about waiting on Him.  

Recently, relative to how our Lord manifests, I heard it said, "A delay is not a denial."  Certainly, that is true sometimes.  While at other times a denial is, in truth, a denial.  When, though, a delay is not a denial, most of us have experienced answers to our needs and desires often on GOD'S schedule and not ours.  We must wait on the Lord with joy and trust that He knows best.  GOD'S Word is truth regardless of circumstances.  Satan aims to discourage us in our waits but we must steadfastly choose to triumph over his purposes and to rejoice in the Lord ALWAYS - so says the Holy Bible in Philippians 4:4 .   

Remember Daniel 10:12, 13:

Then said he unto me, Fear not, Daniel: for from the first day that thou didst set thine heart to understand, and to chasten thyself before thy God, thy words were heard, and I am come for thy words.

But the prince of the kingdom of Persia withstood me one and twenty days: but lo, Michael, one of the chief princes, came to help me;...  

Daily, peace and holiness Scriptures are a focus for me until our Lord shifts me elsewhere.  I still do other daily Bible reading but include peace and holiness Scripture readings every morning.  

In the kingdom of GOD, we're most effective in holiness.  Holy living is pure and gains major and steadfast victories for the advancement of GOD'S purposes.  He's delighted with holiness because it purely represents Him. 

Satan hates when we are in peace in the midst of whatever he launches against us.  He desires that we be disturbed and fainthearted.  The devil's goal is to keep us uneasy because he knows that such hinders our movements for GOD.

Here are some of the scriptures that I'm reading every morning along with Ephesians 6:11-19:

Numbers 25:12
Wherefore say, Behold, I give unto him my covenant of peace.

Psalm 55:18
He hath delivered my soul in peace from the battle that was against me:...

Jeremiah 14:13
...I will give you assured peace in this place.

1 Samuel 2:2
There is none holy as the Lord:...

1 Peter 1:15
But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation;

Revelation 3:7
...These things saith he that is holy, he that is true, he that hath the key of David, he that openeth, and no man shutteth; and shutteth, and no man openeth;

Revelation 22:11
...let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.

Scriptures are from the King James Bible.

Today, to sharpen my spiritual skills, our Lord allowed me a wilderness experience.  It was a hoot.  I'll spare the details because Satan is eager for the attention.  I delight in deprivation of attention to the devil when he's rabid for it.  We are to give him only as much attention as our Lord instructs.   

Instead, you're invited to partake with me of the delight of the Lord.  On the menu today is warfare weaponry from our Lord's Holy Scriptures. 

James 1:2
...count it all joy...

Philippians 4:4
Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice.

The Acts 2:26, 28
Therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad; moreover my flesh shall rest in hope:

Thou hast made known to me the ways of life; thou shalt make me full of joy with thy countenance.

Psalm 2:4
He that sitteth in the heavens shall laugh: the Lord shall have them in derision.

After we are reproached and persecuted, Satan desires that we faint in spirit and become discouraged.  Our Lord shared with me that when the devil comes against us, it's so worth it when we respond opposite to what he desires.  Satan hates when we triumph over his attacks.  That's what I did when I was reproached today.  I mightily praised and glorified GOD.  Our Lord stressed to me that our responses are vital to be witnessed by the devil, and his children.  When they expect us to be discouraged and instead we encourage ourselves in our Lord, that is a POWERFUL testimony and witness of the most High status of GOD.  Glory to His awesome name.  

I use this opportunity to thank the one who is the "inspiration" for this post that I didn't plan.  But of course, we know that GOD was aware and did plan...for He knew that the devil would be waiting for me...

Thank you, devil, for reminding me that I'm worth waiting for - in the name of JESUS! 

The BLOOD is against you, Satan!

Revelation 12:11
And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.

In Christ Jesus, "losses" are Wins!!!

Also "losses" prove that GOD is above it all - forever.  Happy are the people whose GOD is the Lord - Psalm 144:15
