I've been wanting to cry since early July. Believing I needed to cry about this, that and the other. I started planning it last week and just needed some time alone at home. Tonight was gonna be it.
Though this post is called Cry-Baby Zari, it's actually about me growing up and not being a cry baby at all. Lemme me splain, Lucy.
I was all set to finally have my crying fit this evening. And no, nothing is really wrong. It's just transition, exhaustion, frustration, weight gain, a bit of sadness over a recent distant death and that stuffs.
BUT on the way home from the bakery, I listened to Kenneth Hagin's Casting Your Cares Upon The Lord and that messed me up. And by messed me up, I mean got my mind right. He quoted Philippians 4:6 from the AMPC which reads, "Do not fret or be anxious about anything ...,"
I'd been listening for almost 20 minutes and my emotions were already aligning with Truth without me noticing and hearing that brought me to full attention. I repeated the verse aloud, twice and I realized I was smiling and giggling a little. I lost my need for a crying fit - again. This has happened consistently for the past few months. Something seemingly negative would occur that, in the past, I'd cry over but then I use this strategy and instead of crying, overcome.
Earlier this year I heard Hagin, Charles Capps and Jesse Duplantis share in various sermons that they never had sad days, down days, bad days because they had too much Word to live on emotional roller coasters. After I heard each of them say that a few times, I told The Lord I want that, so I went after it with what they suggested. When it started working for me you know I had to share it with Patti Cake.
This strategy is simple but creating the habit takes at least three weeks (21 days). What I do is ... drum roll, please ... put on the Faith Masters when I'm feeling emotional and wanna have a pity-party crying fit. I didn't realize it until tonight, but using this strategy has become a habit for me because I did it this evening without even thinking about it.
Initially, when I stopped giggling, I thought to myself, "Man ... I didn't get to cry again." Then Holy Spirit spoke to me because I wasn't emotional and I was able to hear Him. He asked me what scriptures I knew about crying. The two that came to mind were weeping may endure for a night, but joy comes in the morning (Psalm 30:5) and He keeps our tears in a bottle and book (Psalm 56:8). He then impressed to me that if I'm not fretting and not anxious I have no need of crying. And that led to Him answering a question I asked on social media a couple of weeks ago about why there's so much anxiety in America. There's so much anxiety out there because people don't attend to The Word (Proverbs 4:20).
I keep seeing more and more believers posting about being anxious and using anxiety hashtags. That's what the world does, NOT us. Yes, we're in this physical realm, but we're also seated with Christ in heaven where there's no anxiety. And if The Word of God can get my mind right, it can get anyone's mind right because it's universal. The Word works for anyone who'll work it (meaning believe it). And it does take time to create the habit of taking authority over emotions (and demons) with The Word. As I mentioned, I implemented this strategy earlier in the year, and now it's a habit. But back in February, I can tell you I was still boo-hooing about things that were gonna pass.
I understand suicide, depression and anxiety seem to be powerful demons, but The Truth is they are not. There is NO demon that can defeat Jesus Christ and His Name above every name. Unfortunately, all saints don't believe this. Some people believe demons are difficult to overcome. They are not. As believers in covenant relationship with God The Father through Jesus Christ we are as The Written Word declares us to be, if we believe it.
The Word declares us to have authority over all the power of the enemy so that nothing harms us. We have to believe that from the inside out, and we cannot fake out anything in the spiritual realm. We don't have these bodies with botox and spanx to make us look more together than we really are. The authentic self is all that's visible in the spiritual realm so when we come face-to-face with demons for battle, they can tell if we're solid in faith or if we have huge pockets of unbelief in our spirits. God and angels see the same. If we have faith, angels work for us. If we have pockets of doubt, they're standing by thinking, "Pick up The Word. Pick up THE WORD. PICK UP THE WORD."
If you're thinking to yourself, "You can't fight depression and thoughts of suicide just by reading The Word," you're right ... it'll never work for YOU because you have what you say (Mark 11:23). But I'm a living, testifying witness that you can combat demons of anxiety, suicide, depression and murder with The Word of God. And if you can defeat those demons, you can defeat any demon of any issue with The Word.
I just shared with you my authority to combat anxiety with The Word. I shared a year or two ago about driving east on 320th in Federal Way and a suicide demon popping up speaking things to me, and me answering with The Word. Suicide demons don't just talk to people who are consistently depressed or anxious. The job of the enemy is to steal, kill and destroy; they want everyone dead.
I still hear suicide demons every now and then, but I've realized that they're one of the demons I can discern. They're not necessarily messing with me, but I can hear when they're at work spewing their deathly poison into the atmosphere. Matter of fact, I was hearing them in August and told Patti Cake and Selena and there have been several suicides in these first two weeks September already. In the future I need to do a better job of praying and warring for others during those times because that revelation can save lives.
Please don't feel condemned here; there is now no condemnation in Christ. But if you believe there are things in this life that are more powerful than Jesus or that some demons cannot be overcome, you don't have enough Word in you. Without The Word in you, you can't have faith. And without faith, you're not eligible for the Realm of The Impossible. The parts of The Bible you believe are the parts that work for you. If all your needs aren't met, you don't believe Philippians 4:19. If you believe the enemy can stop you, you don't believe Luke 10:19. So on and so forth.
I understand counselors and therapists are beneficial. If I ever do go for my doctorate, I want it in Psychology, BUT as a believer The Word is my Foundation and Final Say. And I'm in complete agreement with the wisdom of Kenneth Hagin and Charles Capps to take your medicine/counseling/whatever with The Word of God and get healed twice as fast. One takes care of the manifestations in the body and the other casts the demons out of your soul.
I bless you in Jesus' Name.

I like to prove The Word. I wish I could tell you I just believe everything the first time, but I don't. You don't either and that's why we're told faith comes by continually hearing The Word of God spoken out of our own mouths. And by praying in tongues.
My latest experiment was with God's Promise to give seed to the sower. In Isaiah 55:10 we read, "My Word is like the snow and the rain that come down from the sky to water the earth. They make the crops grow and provide seed for planting and food to eat." God told us in The Old Covenant that His Word is like seed and meant to be planted in our spirits. He confirmed His Word as seed to be planted in Jesus' Parable of the Sower (Matthew 13; Mark 4). The purpose of seed is to be planted to make more (multiplied) seed. In 2 Corinthians 9:10 we read, "He Who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will supply and multiply your seed for sowing and increase the harvest of your righteousness." I like this ... so I went after it in faith.
In early June I wanted some money. I had $2 and that's not enough when I'm the heir of The King of the Universe. I have (you, too, saints) hundreds of Promises of provision from my Father and I'm not willing to settle for only $2 on any day. That's not who I am in Christ. I know The Law of Sowing and Reaping which can also be called The Law of Multiplication, so I did what I do. I sowed the $2.
If you have reservations about sowing such a small amount, you need to read My Money Grows on Trees: Sowing into Revelation and Wealth. I sowed my way out of homelessness with pocket change and now I sow a few $1000 seeds every year.
I wrote down my seed. For those who are new to my teaching, I've kept a seed journal since January 2013. The assignment I placed on the seed was that it be doubled so I could sow $4 next time. This seed was specifically for sowing. It wasn't tithe or for anything other than receiving more to give more. That's what the Promise of 2 Corinthians guarantees us - SEED TO SOW. I'm creating extra money just to give it away. If you're wanting increase because you need a bill paid or are sowing for a miracle or anything other than multiplication for giving, you should find a different Promise in The Logos. There are plenty to choose from. If you need help understanding this please ask.
Here are the results:
6.14.19 Sowed $2
6.22.19 Sowed $4; same assignment
6.23.19 Sowed $8
6.24.19 Sowed $16
6.28.19 Sowed $32
7.5.19 Sowed $64
I found $5 somewhere and sowed it with the same assignment, asking that it be multiplied so I could give double next time. To repeat: I'm not asking for multiplication for myself, I'm asking God to multiply my seed for sowing, for giving into The Work of The Kingdom.
6.25.19 Sowed $5 for doubling
6.29.19 Sowed $10
7.1.19 Sowed $20
7.5.19 Sowed $40
Do you see where I'm going here? Multiplication. And it's happening fast. People say all the time they 'can't afford to give THAT much,' but it's only because they haven't made any effort. God promised to give seed to the sower, so if anyone truly desires to give, all they have to do is ask Him. He already said yes and Jesus' finished Work said amen!
I started a third double-seed experiment just today. This one started with a $4 seed. Multi-pli-cation, multi-pli-cation (I'm singing this btw). 🤣
Notice that eight days passed between the first seed and the multiplication, but after I proved faithful and sowed again, the time between decreased. You may be thinking, "Who cares? I need money for me not to sow into The Kingdom." Well, actually you should. When you seek The Kingdom first you get everything else. Not only that, this is EXTRA giving on top of all of my other giving which means that I'm increasing to the point that my pocket change is $64 instead of $2. Wouldn't you like to have $64 as the change in the bottom of your purse? Or increase your overall giving? If you sow your extra change, it can be multiplied as often as you sow all or some of it.
Sowing and reaping does work to help get needs met, of course. This was just an experiment to prove that God would multiply my pocket change and He did. And still is because I'm still sowing it.
I pray something here blessed you. Take care!

UPDATE 7.10.19: I sowed $8 as a doubling of the $4 seed I sowed yesterday.
If you're wondering why I have different seed lines it's because Ecclesiastes 11 tells us to sow in various places, in the day and at night because we don't know which will harvest first. What matters is that if you're consistently sowing, you'll consistently reap. Witness.
UPDATE 7.13.19: I sowed the $128 that started out as a $2 seed back on June 14. That's better than any legal bank's interest or the stock market can produce because it's guaranteed return, not based on speculation.
I'll be sharing about the 100-fold return soon, too. Stay tuned.
I've been meditating on The Blessing of The Lord from Deuteronomy 28:1-14 and praying in tongues to receive revelation about what that looks like in my life.
I wrote out The Blessing from the NASB and printed it up from The Message. You can download a copy of The Blessing for yourself here.
God releases blessings throughout the whole Bible. We have to be as serious about receiving those blessings as He is about giving them.
You might also want to mediate on Proverbs 10:22 as well. Oh, and Galatians 3:13. This is the year of Abundant Harvests and Holy Spirit will lead you to receiving if you're willing. Witness.
I'm conducting an experiment. I don't know when it started exactly, but Holy Spirit birthed a question in me about The Power in The Name of Jesus. I was even singing that song by Lincoln Brewster - There is Power for a few days before I got to work.
Monday was my Shabbat this week so I spent my prayer time studying the places Jesus is recorded in the New Testament. Here's how I began ...
FOCUS: Holy Spirit, teach me about The Power of Yeshua's Name.
I used an online concordance to get a list of verses that include the words 'Name of Jesus.' I used this phrase because I want to know what's recorded regarding The Name of Jesus. Not just mentions of Jesus, but evidences of power by the use of His Name.
I picked a verse, wrote it out in two different versions of The Logos and in Greek. BT Dubbs ... His Name is Iesous in Greek, pronounced ee-ay-sooce'. Beautiful.
QUESTION: Lord, is there revelation about The Power of His Name here (in this verse)?
Next, I wrote what came to mind/spirit based on that verse. Then, I set my timer for seven minutes to declare The Name aloud to see what would happen. In my journal it reads: Lord, this is a total experiment. Seeking Your Glory and Power by faith. I'm trying to understand The Power in His Name. If this is wrong, I repent and will receive Your correction. If there's something for me to learn, meet me. I don't know why this is sticking with me, but it is. It's hunger not vainglory.
Here's the recording. Listen to it with focus. Not while doing something else, and see if you experience anything. Then let me know.
Here's what I wrote afterward: There's definitely something about His Name. I was crying less than two minutes in. I felt humbled, submitted. There was no condemnation or guilt. I felt peace. I wasn't totally focused because I didn't want the timer on the recording. It was hard not to describe Him and not to thank and praise Him. I was trying to only speak His Name, but Him being The Messiah was relevant. I wanted to call Him The Bright and Morning Star. The atmosphere does change when you speak His Name with reverence.
I also have an end note: I know there's more, Holy Spirit, and I can sense Your excitement. Shall we do this again some time?
I mentioned in a video a few weeks ago that God led me to up my worship. I shared that I'd been moving hills and mountains by faith, but one area was resisting in the spiritual realm. When we lack wisdom, we can ask (James 1:5) and receive, so God hooked me up. When I upped my worship, I elevated to another level. Here are my 7 Pillars for Success:
They're numbered so that I don't leave any one out, not in a specific order. But now that I look at the list, it actually makes sense. Faith is first because you can't even get saved without it. Faith works by love. When you love, you serve. Giving is a type of service. You gain authority by those four and so on.
I'll share more as I go deeper in this study. I'm expecting to be skyrocketed in my spiritual maturity. I pray something here blesses you exceedingly.
Today I'm praising God because I checked off another prayer need that was on my list for several years. Thank You, Jesus.
It was one of those prayer requests that was so tough and longstanding that I would focus on it for a bit, then let it go for a while. I'd actually kinda dropped it because it seemed so unlikely to manifest.
Then I matured to a new level of faith late last year and changed from a prayer request to a saying, a decree without regard to 'when will this happen' thoughts, to simply stating as a fact the deliverance was mine.
As often happens, I don't know when things broke in the spiritual realm and released the blessing because it was years and years and years of praying, but it's manifested and amazing and I just want to encourage you to keep believing for and speaking whatsoever you desire, for as long as it takes.
Get a faith buddy, if you can, but if you can't don't quit. To be honest, some things you need to faith into being are too God (big and impossible) for others to get on board. That shouldn't deter you from going after what you want when Jesus has handed you two stacks of blank checks (that's from a dream I had in 2014 and reviewed recently).
I'm taking it all by faith this year. You should, too. I bless you in Jesus' Name.
Blessings in Yeshua's Name!
Dear ones, I need to talk to y'all seriously about faith. We are people of faith. We're saved by faith. We walk by faith. We live by faith. At least that's how it's supposed to be. Here's the proof:
*2 Corinthians 5:7
The reality is too many of ya'll are walking around spewing your fearful, doubting death words at folks like me who have chosen to believe God's Word and live out our salvation in faith.
Well, this is me letting all y'all know, I will cut you off with no further communication if that's the route you choose to take. I don't care who you are. Even if you're someone I love and am praying for ... I don't have to speak to you or be around you to pray for ya'.
I've come this far by faith and I'm not just singing an old played-out church song that's lost its meaning for most folks. I'm not settling and you're not gonna dictate or scale back the size of my inheritance with your fear and chicken coop thinking.
I know who I am and what I've been promised. So as long as *I* don't quit, I'll possess every bit of it. If you're still trying to figure out who you are in Christ, I can help you there. But if you're afraid of the government, of losing your job or anything else, afraid of sickness and lack ... don't bring that to me. I'm not hearin' that. Only come to me if you want solutions and are willing to allow Ruach to renew your mind. Only come to me if you want agreement because you understand the power of this spiritual law. Only come to me if you've said YES and AMEN to faith life.
I'm doing just like Jesus and kicking everybody outta the house that laughs or says dead when I say sleeping.
I bless you with ever-increasing faith and the wisdom to keep your mouth shut and delete text when you can't speak life over yourself and others in Yeshua's Name and in the authority given to me as an ambassador of heaven on earth.
Happy and Blessed 2019, loved ones! This year I'm taking everything by faith.
Let me get right into my title topic, though, before I get sidetracked and have to rename it. I've done that many times before. 🙄
My money mentor always says, "Study the soil," meaning to pay attention to where my money goes and the types of returns I receive. Today I was looking at my income and was pleasantly blessed by the increase, and I got to thinking about where I sowed last; right before this blessing came to me. The soil is super fertile. I've known about this soil for a while, but today for some reason (a reason called Holy Spirit leading me to some revelation, I'm sure) I wondered why in the world it's SO fertile. What is going on with this soil that makes it produce in 24 to 48 hours every time? And how can I become that same or greater kind of soil?
Do you pay enough attention to where you're sowing and whether or not you get the full and proper increase?
I'm building an empire right now so I'm watching my seeds like a hawk. I'm also going back and getting the increase owed to me from past seeds I didn't fully reap from according to what should have been received. I'm also making sure I have no month-to-month debt that'll eat up my income in interest. If you have any debt, big or small, that you want to focus on paying off naturally and supernaturally, 30 Days to Debt Freedom started January 1, 2019 on Prayer Junkie, and there's no cost except for your time, faith and focus to pray along.
For some people time, faith and focus are negatively expensive because they're still in bondage to the enemy. Money, time and focus are things God created to serve us. If your money, time and therefore what you give your attention to aren't under your control, you need deliverance. Speaking of ... this reminds me of two dumb human things I heard today that people - in their natural thinking - loved.
One is to trust the timing of our lives. That is just stupid. There's nothing in God's Word that tells us to trust time. Nothing. Time is a servant, created by El-ohim for us to measure our days, etc. and it's not meant to be trusted, it's meant to come under our dominion. And what if your timeline is has been handed over to the enemy and you're living out demonic cycles and curses on time year after year? Who wants to trust that?! You'll never possess your birthright or The Promises of God in that situation.
Yeshua, help us. Believers, we have to stop just clicking 'Like' on things that sound good when they can't be found confirmed in The Logos. It's time to come into Kingdom Dominion in this generation. It's time for The Body to rise up and stop being trampled. God said, "It's time," and that's where I'm headed this year. Patti Cake, too. And you can come if you want.
There's room for everyone in The Kingdom system. It's not like the world that takes from the wealthy so some don't have to produce. And when you do produce and get wealth, that doesn't limit anyone else's ability to increase. Come on. Let's truly represent God this year and stop playing victims.
So sorry (not sorry) y'all ... got hot there for a sec. I am about to go to The Court of Heaven and handle some legal biz. Take what you need by faith.

Dear ones, we have to stop allowing the enemy to use aging as a faith blocker. And know that I'm here delivering this message because I had to be delivered from this very thing.
The last time I spoke out of my mouth, "But I'm over 40 ..." The Lord spoke right up and asked, "What does that mean?" Absolutely nothing of significance. It's just a marker of how long my spirit has been away from heaven and been in this beautiful body on the earth.
I suspect that's a new perspective for some. Well, I've taken God's perspective as my own. And I chose to take His perspective because I believe His Law. He said He set before us life and death, and I'm choosing life (Deuteronomy 30:15).
The life of God is eternal. That doesn't mean I'll live forever naturally. It means that I live a life sowing to The Spirit, reaping of The Spirit and performing actions that will withstand the fire of judgment. It means I'm living a life with my faith, thoughts and words empowering the things of God instead of demonic things.
Before Holy Spirit corrected me, I would get into a mild panic about my age and see it as a negative. That's worldly and carnal. When I'd discuss my age as a negative, that gave the enemy agreement and the legal right to use aging negatively in my life. Whatever I agree with, I empower. This is true for all of us. You can download my video teaching, The Power of Agreement, from Supernatural You.
I used to have the same negative view of time and how quickly it passes in life. I used to view time as an enemy. Thankfully I understand Divine Time a bit more, know how to work with it and even exercise dominion over it in some areas. If you're interested in learning more about Divine Time you can order my upcoming book, Sanctifying Time, and register for Aligning Time & Destiny 2018.
God doesn't apply age restrictions. The world does, for sure, but He allows equal opportunity for whosoever will (Acts 10:34). So as long as you work your faith any of The Laws and promises found in The Written Word are available to you at any time you choose.
If God doesn't count you out as you age, you shouldn't either. Instead choose eternal life, and spend all of your days receiving the abundant benefits of being an heir to salvation.
"Now listen! Today I am giving you a choice between life and death, between prosperity and disaster." ~ Deuteronomy 30:15
Remember and meditate on these individuals when you feel you're running out of time or feel you're too young or inexperienced to receive from God:
I bless you in Jesus' Name and authority.

12.10.2018 12:45 am AZT - I've come a long way, baby.
I used to be super hype for The Lord, but immature. Now I'm totes chill and free of temper tantrums; God delivered me from them in August 2018. I went through test after test after test after test during the summer. When they first began I was crying and whining, boo-hooing and all that. But as the tests and trials continued I began to weigh the circumstances against The Word of God and came to the conclusion that things were allowed by God - allowed through His Zari-life filter - and that meant if I learned and matured through them instead of falling apart, I'd get rewarded.
That's true (biblically via context and scripture) and armed with The Truth on the inside, Holy Spirit flipped the light on in my spirit and I grew up a few years in spiritual maturity in a few weeks time. And I got rewarded. And I've been getting rewards each time I act from my spirit since then.
Yesterday provided big opportunities for me to demonstrate spiritual maturity and to receive rewards. I delivered some wisdom and Word to a friend's daughter. Things that would be received from me without question because I'm not her mom. Well, my friend was so blessed by what I spoke to and over her daughter, that she prayed God would reward me for my service. Then she returned with a seed and said she was just answering her own prayer. Well, if you know me, you'll know I looked at the seed, gave thanks for it and then turned around and planted it myself. I guess she suspected I would do that because she knows me, she had a second seed and third seed waiting for me.
There are some people that when I'm with them, God has us on assignment - usually a stealth mission that requires a ton of prayer, faith and angelic assistance. Well, I'm here to testify today, that we've moved into operating right in front of the enemy and have gained additional assets. To put it another way, we've gotten to a place of faith where the spiritual laws are working for us all the time. IN SOME AREAS.
As I've stated before, I know every penny I need or want will come to me when I need or want it. I've broken through in faith for finances years ago. Finances, supernatural provision, debt cancellation, discounts, etc. ... I know that stuffs is done when I declare it. But there are other areas where Yeshua bade me to come out on the water, and I sunk as soon as I stepped out. I'm addressing several of those areas right now, though, so I've got new faith on the horizon. *dancing*
So, yesterday on our adventure, I asked according to The Word for some things, got agreement from people with real faith according to The Word and then thanked and praised as it came to pass. But, I failed to address one enemy and they hijacked my plans. Praise God from whom all blessings flow! I didn't shed one tear, didn't act a fool (you really probably have no idea how huge this is, but God does AND the testimony to those in my circle is changing their lives, too) ... instead I praised God for the new opportunity (demonic attack) to exercise my authority in Christ and to see His Word performed in life. And then I got rewarded. 😊
And I have to tell ya'll my December 2018 wouldn't be so awesome if I hadn't gotten my timeline healed. December has always been a month of demonic theft on steroids, but this year I'm stacking chips. By chips I mean rewards. Hallelujah!
I'm inviting you to join me for Aligning Time & Destiny 12/21-30. If you're someone who's been incorrectly taught that events happen automatically according to God's ordained time no matter what you do or don't do, you're gonna get delivered from that nonsense. Most people have no idea they have a Divine Timeline (Psalm 139:16) much less know its originally intended chronological order. Especially if you're someone who's been waiting to marry for many years. Yes, people can wait until 45 and 50 to marry, but if you've been wanting it and struggling to attain it, I guarantee your timeline needs some deliverance. Witness.
The cost of the course is $5 for those who've preordered Sanctifying Time and $10 for all others. And speaking of the book, it's a great resource for self-deliverance of your Divine Timeline. Anyone wanting one-on-one work, I have some openings the first two weeks of January 2019 for mentoring.
We celebrated my son's 17th birthday this weekend. Can you believe I have a 17 year old, being that I look so young? 😆 I know ... hard to believe. Lemme just tell you: I'm so proud of him. He is kind and wise; a man after God's own heart for sure. I'm honored to know him.
I have so many testimonies I wanna share ... but I'll just stop now and let you watch my moves. My apostle told me several times over the last year Holy Spirit would come upon and break me out and launch me forward. It's happening now. And it's good.
God bless you.

Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving, loved ones! I pray you found things to thank God for today, even in the midst of circumstances that aren't ideal and more so if the enemy was battering you with loneliness, fear and despair.
After my last season of transition, I have a lot to be thankful for. I don't really have any ideal circumstances right now, but I have ignited faith so there are fantastic things in store. It's only a matter of time.
A memory came back to me a little a bit ago - a sweet one of God's provision - that sprung a well of great thanks in me. Four or five years ago I didn't have any money at Christmastime. This used to be a regular occurrence for me because December was one of the three months of the year the demonic cursed in my annual timeline. Praise God this is no longer true for me because I've sanctified December. Another something for me to be thankful for.
Back to the memory. So several years ago I had no money, but Zayne and I prayed for some and God provided. Someone sowed either the 23rd or 24th. Thank You, Jesus! They actually tracked me down, met me somewhere around town without telling me what it was about. Then when we got together, they put the money in my hand and said, "God told me I had to get this to you today. I'm not sure why."
I wanted to get Z Disney Infinity for Xbox and Target had it on sale. I went to Target, but they were sold out, of course. Then I tried Walmart; they had it in stock, but it was more expensive than Target for the specific package I wanted. I looked at Walmart's website on my phone and they had the bonus package for lower than in the store, but it wasn't going to arrive by Christmas if I ordered it.
I found an associate and asked why it was lower online, and they said it was no big deal, they'd honor the online price in store right then and there. I bought the game pack and some stocking stuffers and praised God for coming through once again. I have so many of these experiences with God coming through that it's easy for me to believe for financial provision. I have solid faith in that area because I give big and I reap what I sow. I have less faith in other areas, but I'm actively working to build my faith in this season.
What area is your faith completely solid? Healing? Provision? Salvations? Miracles? What areas do you need to build your faith? What are you doing to actively increase your faith?
To finish the memory. Late on Christmas Eve, Z went and looked under the tree and was sad there was nothing there. I said I was sorry, I didn't have any money. He said it was ok, but was also teary-eyed. When he finally went to bed I put the video game under the tree. When he awoke in the morning and saw the game he was so excited. And it wasn't even big excitement about the game. The game was a whopping $40 or less and he had it beaten in two days. I, however, got stuck on some level and quit. It was excitement about not being forgotten or left out. And of witnessing God come through once again.
I shared this with Zayne today. He remembers. There have been Christmases past where he's gotten bikes, a Wii and loads of presents. But one he remembers is one where he only received one because of the way it was given to him. That's a sweet memory we have with God, and I love celebrating it.
Do you have any Christmas memories of being in need (or want, because honestly this was a want situation) and God providing? I'd love to celebrate His love for you just as you're celebrating His love for me by reading this testimony. You may post them in the comments or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Also, I'm writing my letter to God (because Santa's not real, although his story is jolly) Sunday 11.25.2018. And this year I'm extending an invitation to you to write one to Him as well. You know what goes in a 'wish/want' letter; whatever you're praying for so I'm not giving you a template. You can mail them to me at Zari Banks, P.O. Box 2001, Pasco, WA 99302 so that I can pray over them. I won't open your letter unless you indicate it's ok to open on the envelope. Keep a copy for yourself so you can water it and keep believing ... and see the progress over the year.
I have to dig out my letter from last year and see what all God's done for me over the last 12 months. Overall it's been a really good year ... a lotta warfare, but some big deliverance battles were won. Stuff that plagued me for years has been overcome. That's a testimony.
Two more things. First, I got a head's up that I'm either in or about to enter ANOTHER season of transition. 🙄 It's not that I mind transition 'cause I know there's good on the other side ... but I want a knocked out Cesarean where I wake up with a baby in my arms and no pain around the scar if you get my meaning. I realize God's not down with a no-growth transition, though, so I'll be praying and praying and praying as I push.
Second, December has a 20-day window of destiny reconciliation and I'm going to lead a prayer group. If you'd like to join, it's gonna cost ya - $2 to $5. But it's worthy seed going into fertile soil. I guarantee it.
Big blessings to you today and every day. Yeshua reigns!
Grace and peace to you in Yeshua's Name, dear ones. I pray you're all maturing in spirit and coming into The King's desired dominion and authority for your lives.
I went to a deliverance ministers' training in South Carolina at the beginning of the month. It was awesome. I went expecting and I received. I expected to get some revelation and deliverance for my life and to add some new tools to my breakthrough toolbox for working with others. I got it all.
One tool I picked up was how to help someone who's spirit is locked up, to get free. I had this issue at our conference in October. I was ministering to spirits and there was one participant who could not get their spirit to respond to basic engagement. I didn't know what to do then because I'd never experienced that before, but I do now because it was one of the topics addressed in a modeled session at the event.
Imagine it. This person hears from The Lord a bit and has a consistent prayer life. But they also have lots of abdomen sickness and moments of great fear in several areas of life. I've been working with them for a few years and knowing that their spirit is being held captive by a specific demonic entity explains so much about why they haven't been able to break into authority and haven't matured at a godly rate even though they want more of God.
Processing this situation above has triggered a reminder for us. God is sovereign and can choose to step into our lives at any point and deliver us from one thing or 100. BUT most of the time, He lets His original mandate stand: Humans are to subdue the earth and exercise dominion and authority over all the power of the enemy (Genesis 1:28; Luke 10:19).
I know I wish He would just send The Word and command the demonic to drop every charge against me and repay me 100 times for every side eye they've aimed my direction, but that is not my experience. Same with the verse directing us to stand still and allow God to fight our battles. That doesn't automatically apply to anyone - especially not me. That verse applies when that's what God speaks about a given period of warfare. Otherwise you're supposed to be exercising dominion and authority over the enemy. And believers refuse to obey God in this on a large scale and that's why we have no collective power in America, and no spiritual unity around the world.
Anyhoo ... let me get back on track here. At the training someone asked how can people all over the world have the same demon of fear attached to/attack them when demons aren't omnipresent. He said he didn't know and wasn't concerned with that. He was more concerned with diagnosing issues and getting folks delivered and then healed. I agree with his answer and was blessed by the fact that he truthfully said he didn't know the answer to the question. How many church leaders are willing to do that in this day and age?
Then last night I was chatting with Holy Spirit and had a thought. It's only a thought, not a Word from The Lord, but it very well could've been Holy Spirit inspired because we were communing at the time. My thought: What if we create demons?
Think about it. We perform actions that agree with God and gain favor, anointings, gifts/giftings and angels to assist. The demonic perverts everything possible. So ... what if we're giving life to darkness when we perform actions that agree with the demonic?
That's actually what we're doing. Naming things that don't exist yet but are only potential substances via quantum physics is a scientific way of explaining faith. We, like God, can speak things into being - that's faith. So when we have an opportunity to speak godly, we bring godly results into existence. Conversely, when we have opportunity to speak evil, we bring satanic results - demons - into existence. Are you tracking with me?
Here's a practical example. In October the enemy tried to kill me twice in five days. I was shaken after both incidents and had the opportunity to agree with fear of death. Had I agreed and started worrying all the time that I was going to die, that would've allowed a spirit a death to attach to my life. So, it's not that one spirit of death had to be omnipresent, it's that I would've put my faith in the spirit of death and gave it the substance to take up residence in my timeline. Same with sinning (yes, fear is sinning). We sin and come into agreement with the potential demons and the harassment they employ to oppress us.
No, this doesn't explain everything, it's just a start. Just the beginnings of one fleeting thought I had last night while talking to Holy Spirit about a different topic altogether. In case you didn't know, this is what I do. I do deliverance. And I do it on hard cases because I live my own hard cases.
I'm currently in a season of faith-building. I started out on fire, and when I started picking up momentum, the enemy got jealous and battered me like the maniacs they are. Then, a spirit that had taken up residence in my chest was identified, so I battled that with two people praying with me for six days. I finally got my head above water again yesterday, and now I'm right back on my faith journey. I'm still waiting for verifiable, sustained evidence that the eviction took, though. I've experienced a small piece of freedom since, but need five or more evidences to declare an established pattern.
If you're ready, or desperate, for some deliverance, I may be who you need. Let me know. In the meantime I have tons of resources available for self-study and deliverance on Supernatural You. And I'm uploading vids to YouTube as I have a chance.
Please release verbal agreement for increased Divine Light to shine on my life and work for The Kingdom, in Yeshua's Name. Thank you. Oh yeah, my transition is over and I ended up with two houses on the westside!! And I'm planning to add a third ... by FAITH! Thanks for your prayers and support. God knows how to favor you big as you reap from blessing me.
I bless you to work The Word by faith so that you receive everything you need and want from God.

Please disregard the foolishness of this post and focus on the spiritual thread.
Here's the spiritual thread. When a negative SAME THING happens again in another year, on the same day that's an active curse. Or blessing if it was something good happening again, on the same day, in another year.
I've been cleansing and sanctifying my and a few others' timelines this year of demonic junk; addressing days, months and seasons when the enemy has popped up to cause problems again and again. I just did some cleansing last night, matter of fact.
One of the reasons God's calendar is so powerful is because it's built with supernatural blessings attached to it. God creates us with the intention of our lives being lived in a constant cycle of increase. Yes, we all have setbacks, but they're not meant to become embedded in our souls or spirits or to have the enemy come in and lock us into places of decrease and stagnation.
That's the ideal, of course. In truth, we get stuck. The woman above is an example, and I'm a prime example - historically my Marches, Novembers and Decembers had time curses. At least I was an example. I'm getting more and more breakthrough all the time. And you can, too. So many times we realize we're caught in demonic curses/cycles, but don't know how to get free. We try to cast out and identify various demons and this and that, but only get temporary relief instead of full deliverance.
Cleansing and sanctifying time is actually legal work done in The Court of Heaven, and Jesus already has all the information so we don't have to worry about what demon we agreed with that signed the contract that's got us stuck. We just present the case based on God's desire that our Divine Timelines be manifested as He desires (Psalm 139:16) and then we appropriate Jesus' finished work on The Cross to get set free. It's amazing.
Look back over your life and at your immediate family. Read through your past journals if you still have them. If you can pinpoint repeats in your life and family line that you haven't been able to break free from even though you've tried again and again, you've most likely identified a curse on time. It could be a curse on age - such as families in which everyone gets in a life-changing accident at age 23 (years are a measure of time, name of demon not required). It could be months of the year like in my case - 25% of my annual life open for free-range demonic devouring (months are a measure of time, name of demon not required).
If you'd like more assistance with time-related deliverance I have some mentoring sessions available - email me at email@example.com. Mentoring means I'll assess, advise and assist in the process as you take authority for your life. I cannot do all of the work for you because it will not last in cases like that. This is something that believers often get terribly wrong, and as a result, don't experience sustained freedom. Yes, God will set us free when we ask AND implement His principles, but everything requires some type of life change on our parts to maintain what God has delivered us from and to. The life change part has to be all you. I can walk with you as you implement ... and pray for you. But, you have to do the work to win.
If you're not interested in investing in mentoring services, I have a book - Sanctifying Time - that you can preorder, that will give you a framework for cleansing and sanctifying your Divine Timeline.
If all you want is prayer ... let's pray:
God of Time, I lift up those seeking prayer for the aligning of their Divine Timelines written about in Psalm 139:16 with Your Original Design. I bless them to seek You diligently and in faith to receive the revelation, strategies, tools and wisdom to locate demonic markers and get freedom from them. I declare this by faith in Jesus and seal it by Holy Spirit. Amen.

God flipped me.
I was praying at 3:33 p.m. PDT Friday, October 12, 2018 and I asked Him a question according to Jeremiah 33:3. He answered immediately with one word, "Faith."
As soon as He said that, Holy Spirit flipped my faith switch to on and I've been barreling forward ever since.
No, faith isn't easy. There are circumstances, there are other humans we have to work around and with and there's everything else that's going on in the natural. BUT ... when you get the Word from God about what's needed to overcome and take possession, you've got a guaranteed victory ahead. I'm taking my promise.
I can give God faith. I know how faith comes - by hearing. And hearing and hearing and hearing and hearing and hearing His Word. And anytime I begin to doubt, because things look wrong - or are actually going wrong, I just state the truth: 'God, You said all I need is faith to win here, and I have faith. No matter what, if You said faith is all it takes, this is mine for sure.'
I can give God faith. If that's what He wants, I can give Him that. Faith is simple. Not easy, but simple. I can rehearse the testimonies of His faithfulness in the past and increase my faith for now. I can plead The Blood of Yeshua against the enemy, who loves to state the obvious to me, and submit to God to get them to flee. I can listen to Kenneth Hagin every possible minute because his recordings are on YT. I can get faith to come. It does take work, but I can give God what He needs so that I possess this promise. I'm going to possess this promise. I have faith.
Whatever you're believing for right now, I pray you first seek The Lord for a strategy, and then work it in faith. Big faith. Huge faith. And possess all of your promises. I bless you in Yeshua's Name.

#SY5779 is just 17 days away! Today I got the lunch and dessert order placed so that's one more thing checked off the to-do list. My family's eatery is catering it and we're having cupcakes for dessert. Food is included with your registration - I'm an eater so you should've expected to get your belly ministered to along with your spirit and soul (and body if you need healing). There is still - a little - time to register.
It's gonna be totes awesome. I flew to Chicago last week and did some of the ministry to the human spirit that I'll be doing at the conference. It's much easier to do in person than any other way - at least for me as a deliverance practitioner. Though I do acknowledge there's no time or distance in the spirit. And after a portion of the person's spirit got set free from demonic control God said, 'everything is turning' ... and they've been moving forward with acceleration since then. Hallelujah!
If you need to be set free and you've been through as much deliverance as you know how to do plus what others have done and are still bound, come. You'll be exceedingly blessed. If you're truly desperate and want to be free, that is. We all know some folks are cool with their demons.
Not me ... I'm trying to get free from a curse that's on me right now, and I don't have any tools for freedom. Yet. So, I'm sitting with and submitting to Holy Spirit in regular sessions until He deems my deliverance work is acceptable and He unlocks these chains.
BT dubbs ... due to the personal nature of deliverance ministry, this revolution will not be televised or recorded. You'll need to be present to win. [See what I did there? ... must be present to win ... I'm hilar. 😂]
Here are some of our desserts you can enjoy at the conference.
Now on to the Missing Arms vision I had Sunday. You'll need to go read that post before this will make much sense.
So ... Sunday morning I had that closed vision. Closed meaning eyes closed, but awake. I know I was awake because I checked myself after I realized I'd had a vision. I said: What was that?! Was I dreaming? Nope I'm awake; it was a vision. Whoa. Wow. Hmm ...
I put the vision out to the world to get some feedback and NOBODY had any for me. Which is fine. God does that sometimes. For various reasons. One being some stuff He can't afford to be misconstrued or misinterpreted so He just holds the revelation for you or as in this case, letting it unfold and then confirming.
Yesterday I received a notification that my post about the vision had been read by one of my mentors. She didn't give me any feedback, though. I reread the vision just to keep it fresh in my mind and as I did, the revelation flooded in.
Since Sunday - the day of the vision - every request I've agreed on with a prayer partner has manifested with great shows of favor on my behalf from God. The vision was the shift or the precursor to this amazing favor I'm walking in right now. Those angels are assigned to me and have been given the Yes and Amen from The Father to make it happen, cap'n. Eso!
I had no idea those angels were for me. That never even occurred to me. I figured The Lord was showing me angels for lots of people. But those angels were all mine. I just got that revelation as I'm here typing this. I am spoiled. Thanks, Dad.
Some notes about this favor:
Speaking of sowing pennies and big, fat, divine favor ... I encounter many believers who want to receive things free when they're not big sowers. I admit I do have the assumption of Holy Spirit pricing and getting things free or discounted, but I'm a huge sower. I sow personally, sow in my business and I don't even blink at a piggly-wink 10%. I passed that years ago. God examines the heart. Until you can learn to give freely and easily (yes, with wisdom, claro, that's expected) you don't have the right to the assumption/hope/desire for everyone to give you lots of things for free.
I always tell people to sow when they get or have something and as soon as they hesitate I KNOW they're not giving. And that's fine. Also, I'm never asking that it be given to me. I know God takes care of me. If He didn't I wouldn't be able to serve and sow the way I do as a single with only a part-time job. Just yesterday I gave Z some money and told him to pray for me and don't forget to tithe. Immediately he said, "Ok, I will." That man is fertile soil because he gives to God first and sows seed to boot.
I wrote a couple of books sharing how I broke through after being laid off, foreclosing and being homeless. They'll bless you if you're someone who's willing to add sowing to your life - especially if you're struggling financially. Dude ... when I was homeless I wrote 2-3 articles a day at Starbucks, drinking their nasty coffee if I couldn't afford a Mocha, and using their wi-fi, that paid $2.50-$3 each and I still sowed the $0.25 and $0.30 'cause I wasn't trying to be broke forever. Then I started getting higher-paying articles, and wrote my first devotional. And I started increasing my giving.
God said test Him with the money, and to be blunt, you're a fool if you choose to pass up that kind of offer. The devil can't test God and we can't any other time and expect to live - except with money. Let me chill.
That sounds harsh (may be, but it's all Truth), so let me end with a testimony. Someone told me yesterday, "Every car I've ever driven you in has been paid off and I'm debt free. I've sown to you and knew God could do some things, but not to the level He's done them. That being said ..." and they pulled out three crisp one hundred dollar bills for me.
I pray something here blesses you. I really do love y'all. And I'm enjoying my new season of favor.

This morning I had a vision of angels on the move.
I was standing somewhere too beautiful to be earth, and looking forward at a line of angels on the move - floating about a foot off the ground, they all had wings. I don't know if they were reporting in to get assignments or returning from them. They were single file, very uniform, standard and similar-looking. Most of the time when I see angels they're distinctive and have specific assignments. These angels were like a regiment of soldiers but weren't wearing any type of armor.
At one point in this ongoing line, there was a gap where an angel was missing. It flew/floated into its spot in line and I noticed its arms were missing - reminded me of foosball. Then as he/it took his place in line the arms grew back, and the line continued without a hitch.
I'm gonna think over this and report back when I have something. Blessings.

Numbers have Biblical meanings, but they're also very personal. People often ask me what numbers they're seeing frequently mean, and my response is always, "Ask God."
It really depends on what you've been working on with The Godhead while you're seeing them. About a half hour ago I prayed something that needed heaven's full attention and backup. Then I came here to sit down and write an update for you, and see the beautiful numbers listed above.
The triple seven represents Yeshua and the fullness of The Godhead. Seven individually is God's number for rest, completion, perfection. There's so much there I could be here for a couple hours going over it, but instead I'll direct you to a series of teachings I have on the year 5777. You can download them on my book site - Supernatural You Books. If you're interested, that is. No pressure.
When I saw the triple seven, I said YES and AMEN because I asked The Just Judge for a ruling on something with a time limit for manifestation attached. My request is confirmed done.
The second set of numbers are great, too. I believe they are confirmation to the second request I made. Again, this request needed some serious divine backup because it involves land I'm cleansing that's in a different location than I'm in currently. There's no time or distance in the spirit (praise God!), but I needed help with something I should've done but didn't one of the two times I went to the focus site. God is confirming to me that absolutely, He's in agreement with this work I'm doing on both of these deliverance cases. Hallelujah!
Let's look at the second numbers, and then I'll get to the post I actually came over here to write. Two represents (on the positive side) agreement, covenant, confirmation. There were three two's. Awesome. And three represents The Godhead and a perfect witness. The Written Word tells us statements are confirmed by the testimony of two or three witnesses. God is on my side in these things, and I give Him big praise and honor.
I could even speak to what 21 and 9 rep, but I'm already too hype so I'm not going there. 😃
Ok, I originally came over here to talk about seasons. Patti Cake and I were talking about what type of season God has each of us in earlier today - I've got a teaching on godly seasons, it's actually in book form, that I could put out. I'm normally in a season of big revelation at this time of year, but I'm in transition (oh, joy ... just kidding) and in a season of action. Transition: I'm in between the end of one season of prophet's provision and the beginning of another; I shared that a few weeks ago. I'm also having to exercise through action the dominion and authority God granted me several months ago.
I love how things continually change with God as we mature and grow. I mean ... if you're not actually growing in your spirit, you probably do the exact same things with God ALL the time. This isn't true with those moving forward in The Kingdom. As I've stated before, the last two years - 5777 and 5778 - these three weeks of High Holy Days were jam packed with revelatory downloads. This year - 5779, The Year of Abundant Harvests - God's like: Z ... you have position in The Kingdom ... live like it. And I'm totes alright with that.
What season are you in with God? Do you know/can you identify it? And are you doing what you're supposed to be doing? Asking for a friend ... and His Name is Yeshua. 😂
Please continue to agree verbally that my prophet's room on the west side be released to me asap. And I'd really like it to be somewhat permanent. I'm ready to unpack my Mickey Mouse suitcase for once. Let's pray:
Lord, You are fantastic and Your mercies are with me all my days. I thank You for already having a plan for my housing. A plan that includes rest, peace and a prayer closet. I repent of missing it if You've already revealed it to me, and ask that You bring it around again with that special emphasis You reserve for only me 'cause You know I'm hardheaded. And I ask for recompense for all the funds that have been devoured this month of limbo with increase and acceleration. I declare this all in faith in Yeshua and seal it by Holy Spirit. Amen.
There's still time to sow your 5779 seeds. I received a testimony already from one person who sowed. They didn't even sow to me and they still got a benefit that I enjoy in my life. See below.
I bless you in Yeshua's Name and pray you're receiving The Goodness of The Lord in this season. Amen. Love y'all.

I quit my fast.
I made it 11 days, though. And truth be told that is an extended fast for me. 😁
I quit because I'm an emotional eater. I know this about myself and have for a long time. And I was being tossed to and fro three days in a row at the beginning of this week, and I needed something fatty and greasy to get my mind together.
But, God turned everything around for my great. I had a moment early Tuesday morning, challenged God and asked Him how I was any different than an unbeliever with all that was going on in my life. I didn't throw a tantrum. He's been breaking me of tantrum throwing all year. I first realized Him trying to correct me in March but it didn't take.
He tried again in August and it took. He sent test after test - matter of fact the stuffs that went on at the beginning of this week made eight straight weeks of being in this current kickball tournament. That's why I finally cried and asked The Lord to step right away.
I suspect there may be a connection between temper tantrums and the spirits of death or suicide. A connection in my life anyway; this may not be transferable. In the past, when I've been hit with lots of things all at once, those spirits whisper that I should quit, hide and die. This didn't happen this week. They did tell me to quit and hide, but there were no whispers of death. That's interesting. And also very cool.
So, I fussed at God, then took a nap. Got up and rested the remainder of Tuesday. Still kinda fussing here and there ... you know how I do it. Then beginning Wednesday morning The Lord had already begun releasing rewards to me. By last night, He'd spoiled me so good I couldn't sleep from joy bubbling over.
Now ... I don't know if I have any wisdom for you here so I ask for grace. Why am even telling you, then? Well, because this is the relationship I have with God, and I'm sharing our journey. He and I are real with each other. I know there are people out there who try and pretend they don't get angry at or judge God. I do all of the above. You better believe I still had fear in me at times when I was fussing because He does have the right to spank the mess outta me as His talking-back child any time He wants. But I am completely honest with Him.
And I'm so trained to pray and talk to Him that even when I do try and walk away I end up going right back because He's all I have. I have no alternative. I don't have anyone else here with me. Yes, I do have friends and relatives, but they're not here in this location with me. And even if they were, they don't have my struggles. They have their own things going on, too, and can't be dealing with all my nonsense every day.
If nothing else, I am definitely entertainment for The Lord and The Cloud of Witnesses. I guarantee it.
Ok, so, one last thing ... my biggest reward for discontinuing temper tantrums is that God gave me my sweetheart back. 😍 After 17 months and five days, y'all. With no communication at all. God was like: NOPE! You can't treat My man right, you can't have him. That's how long it took me to grow up. I ran a Words man off with my out of controlness and he came back to ME with an apology. Only God. And you'd better believe I'm on my best behavior now. I've already been to the ball, had to leave and left him my slipper so we're at the end of the movie now. Which is actually a new beginning. Yes and amen.
Here are some posts that will help you with the timeline. There are others between these two pages, but I can't find them right now. Sorry.:
Gotta love God's calendar and a new year. It's always good. Always good.
This is gonna be a big seed year for me. I'm sowing for abundant harvests. It's a nine year - 5779.
Let's talk a little about God's Time. First of all it's cyclical. Most of know this because we can see that hours, days, weeks, months and decades circle around and repeat again and again. Cycles. We grow up in schools being taught to make those linear timelines. They work for ordering facts but they're not complimentary to God's Time.
For example, I journal and can look at my life and see how I've moved forward in time, but have actually circled back around and am working on a big issue with God again. Days continued to move forward in a predictable line, but my spiritual journey is in a different place on the timeline than the days we may be viewing. Did that bug your brain? 😂 God's timing is what matters, that's my point. Yes, days progress in my life, but where my spirit is on my Divine Timeline is where I'm focused. Hope that makes a little sense to you.
This decade of 70 - Ayin - is about seeing in the spirit and learning to see the natural through spiritual eyes; otherwise known as aligning with God's view. That's one of God's overall foci for this 10-year season. Seventy is also fullness of perfection and completion of God's Law being fulfilled - remember Daniel read The Law and knew Israel's 70-year judgment should end so he fasted for the manifestation. I'm fasting right now. And I like the king's rich foods so I've been grumpy. I'm pulling down much grace right now. Believe it.
In addition, each year has a focus as well. The number nine represents harvests and fruitfulness - remember babies are born after nine months of prep; the gestation season ends and the seed comes forth as new life. Yes, God! That hit my spirit, y'all. Whoo! The seeds that I put down in the past, and have been watering and pruning, are coming up big this year. Nine also represents The Fruit of The Spirit. If you haven't been able to walk in either of those, you can this year in abundance. But as with everything with God, you have to seek after those nine gifts, AND you have to have sown good seed in the past to produce abundance in this harvesting season. Yes, Jesus!! That one hit me, too!
I'm going to walk through deliverance for Divine Timelines at #SY5779 next month. There's still time to register, get a plane ticket and book a hotel if you're not local. If you can't make the conference, you can order my book Sanctifying Time. It doesn't have the direct deliverance that I minister in person, but it will help you align your day-to-day life with God's Original Design.
Lastly, I'm encouraging you to sow a $57.79 seed for abundant harvests in 5779. I'm not asking you to sow to me, I just want to encourage you to sow. And sow into fertile soil - that means ask Holy Spirit where and when. Just make sure you sow a specific seed for this year, and don't try to tack it on to tithes. I've sown six days this week. I'm resting for The Sabbath. 😉
Speaking of sowing I received a testimony today. A friend said to me, "Since taking you to the airport twice, I've got two new cars paid in full, a house paid in full, my kid's tuition paid for and I'm debt free." You know I hugged my friend's neck praising God, and texted this praise report to Patti, Tam and Selena as soon as I got it. That's our Dad, y'all. He activated the prophet's blessing (I'll see if I can find the video for this) for me a year or so ago, and those who bless me do get blessed. It's a big honor.
Normally I'd pray for us here, but the prayer for this year is actually on Prayer Junkie. Hop over there and read it aloud, in faith and then celebrate Yeshua, The Conquering King. Be blessed.

The enemy's been knocking me around for a little while now, and I've had enough. I asked The Lord for the divine how-to that'll make them pay and pay and pay. I heard, "Extended fasting."
Why, Lord, why? 😫😫😫 You know how much I love food, Lord. Is there no other way?
I just finished 40 days of tongues and now I'm going into a fast. Lord Jesus, help. I do not like fasting. I do it; but I like to do it quick and focused and get done and back to eating - 3 days or less. But He said EXTENDED.
I'll just have to keep telling the enemy they're getting beaten to a pulp at any moment to make it through this next season. That'll be my motivation. And that's good motivation. I do want them beaten down, heads cut off, faces melted and anything and everything else that can happen to them BEFORE they get cast into outer darkness.
I'm asking sincerely to please keep me accountable. I need it. I'm weak. I'm desperate right now, but I ain't gon' lie - I like pizza, hamburgers, fries, tacos, steak, candy, chips and all that. It'd be easier to fast if I was a vegetarian, I think, because you're not supposed to eat grass anyway. Pray for me.
Lord, help me to remember over the next 40 days that every delicious and fatty substance I refrain from eating is like a dart going into the eye of one of the demons who've been harassing me the past five weeks. Amen.
I'm reading Job 16 today. Not for any particular reason; it's just where I am in this specific Bible reading front to back.
Interestingly, Job said in verse seven, "You have worn me out, God," and that's how I feel today. I totes get that these tests are for my great - eventually - but this mess hurts. And this is week five or six of test after test.
I trust God completely, but I'm also telling Him how badly this hurts. I'm moving forward, and at the same time reminding Him that it's painful so He can stop any time now. I'm going to obey if He gives instructions, but I'm also asking for earthly rewards and not only heavenly ones. I'm continuing to pray several hours a day, and believing something fantastic will happen for me even though all I see in the natural are top to bottom bruises from running into walls and having several doors slammed in my face.
I don't understand what God's doing, but I trust Him. And I have to say at this point in my life, anyone who says they understand God is lying through their teeth. Much of this pain just doesn't make sense ... except that God has a Kingdom purpose being fulfilled. So when whatever's coming breaks, I guess I'll be thankful I was able to participate, but for right now ... it just hurts.
I bless you in Yeshua's Name and pray that your seasons of pain bring multiplied fruit in your lifetime and beyond.

Shana tova, dear ones! Blessed New Year!
I'm more excited about this year than any before because I'm starting a new year with an increasingly healed timeline. I'm walking out my Psalm 139:16 schedule instead of running behind, playing catch up from being out of alignment with God's original design for my life. This is exciting. And it feels good.
Switching gears for a minute. This is a PSA. I realize that life in America is much about me, myself and I, but God has need of us in this generation. He needs us every generation, but we've failed Him up to this point. Seriously ... it's nobody's fault but believers' that our nation is such a mess. We fell for that separation of church and state nonsense, which isn't Biblical, nor is it historically accurate for this country and we're paying the price. So, now, if you have any concern for God's agenda - which supersedes all - watch this video and begin praying regularly for our nation. Otherwise, praying may no longer be an option for us.
Trump Delivers Prophetic Warning to Christian Leaders
Back to 5779 ... I started learning and honoring God's calendar (which is completely laid out in The Bible) almost seven years ago. It's changed my life. God created time, sanctified it and made it holy (Genesis 2:3). It's one of the reasons, we're not supposed to waste it and why it's valuable - holiness adds value and requires certain care. I'm giving you parts of my new book - Sanctifying Time - here on accident. 😆 Anyway, God's calendar was created with a cycle of blessing and principles intertwined, and when we acknowledge it, we come out delivered and victorious. Witness.
Two years ago, during the new year season (it's about 3-4 weeks) God took me into another realm and showed me some aspects of time. It was fascinating and exciting and it freaked me out so I didn't pursue greater understanding of it. In the encounter I was in what looked like a galaxy of stars - think of when Lena Horne's singing up in the sky in The Wiz. Then windows, all different shapes, sizes and kinds, became visible and I heard, "These are the Windows of Time." You could open a window and see the past, present or future or enter into one of those windows to pull things between the times. I know: wild.
I'm not afraid of time anymore because as my timeline gets more and more healed, I'm able to exercise greater dominion over time. And that's amazing authority because we know in this life there are things we need supernatural assistance so they happen 'in time' and 'at the right time,' and dominion makes those things possible when they wouldn't be otherwise.
I always spend this new year season with The Lord, pulling down massive amounts of revelation. It's awesome because He opens heaven during this time because He's always planned for us to seek Him at a new beginning/a start and get the divine blueprint for what's ahead. Can you imagine if we'd continued with this process centuries ago instead of allowing the ways of man to take over our lives? Talk about bringing The Kingdom to earth ... we'd have a whole lot more of it today than these little piecemeal bits we have to fight for. We'd have more immediate healings. Less fear in The Body of Christ.
SN: I don't understand why we're so afraid of offending people when we have all the power? Well, it's 'cause we don't have power. We don't know God's principles and so we're weak on a large scale instead of mighty. Sad.
Anyhoo, over the next several weeks, I'll be praying in tongues, fasting, communing, reconciling, sowing, receiving revelation, getting delivered, finishing up the book, planning my Disney World vacay, preparing for the conference and all the other work I do.
If you're not living your Psalm 139:16 timeline, or not sure, or didn't even know you had one, I invite you to come to #SY5779 October 20, 2018 so you can get some deliverance work done that'll set you right. I've shared before that when my timeline was misaligned and under demonic control, by legal right they were able to sabotage dates that God had ordained for me to do and receive some things. I don't like missing out and am not any longer. You don't have to miss out on what God has for you either. You also don't have to spend your entire life playing catch up. You really can align with God's timing. Witness.
Lord, I praise You for investing the time to write out my life in a book. I thank You for access to its pages, wisdom, resources and angelic assistance to live my original design. I also honor You for being a magnificent Editor. Thank You for grace and mercy. I bless You for loving me enough to write such a majestic story. You did good. And I trust You. I look forward to many more days of adventure with You. Love You. Amen.
P.S. Thank you so much for agreeing with me in prayer about the things I share here. I'm honored that you take the time to, not only read, but utter my name and needs before The Lord. It's humbling. I bless you in Jesus' Name and authority. Happy & Blessed New Year 5779!

I'm in transition. Again.
It's all good, though ... it's just a part of Kingdom Life. You probably can't find anyone in The Written Word who did big for Yeshua that wasn't often on the go from one adventure (season) to another. But I could be wrong so feel free to correct me. Especially people like me (teachers) who need to make sure it's right ... go for it; there's a comment section below just for y'all.
I shared earlier this month that I'm looking for new a new prophet room on the west side. If you need or want new housing yourself, praying that I get planted quickly is great seed for God to work on your behalf. Witness. I actually got a first look at the place I think I may be moving in November or December. Lord willing. He's got the big bucks so He's in charge. 😉
Last year at this time, Tam and I were gearing up for Rosh Hashana at GZI. God's new year begins next week which is early (to me) this year so I have to celebrate from wherever I am. It's gonna be so good, though. I'm going into a new year with a significantly more healed life timeline than ever before. It's on!
If you need your life timeline healed, come to #SY5779 in October. There's still time to register and get plane tickets and hotel. I asked for agreement from you readers a bit ago to make sure I got the best rates on the tickets I needed to buy for the conference, and our multiplication paid off big time. And the hotel, too! Thanks for that. That being said, if God did it for my company, He'll do it for you. Ask, get agreement, do your part and believe.
God has also been working some miracles for me lately. Some for real miracles. Impossible things becoming possible. It's exciting. I could barely sleep the past two weeks I've been so hype. And you know I gets hype! When the miracles culminate into something more, I'll share. But for right now, it's just big-little pieces that are stepping stones to something greater. I have a sense of what's to come, but you know Big G ... He always outdoes what we think, hope or imagine. Let's pray:
Lord God, Yahweh ... big praise, honor and glory to You. You are wonderful, awesome, amazing, beyond the human vocabulary to describe. We bless You. We value You. We trust You. Completely. Amen.
I pray God touches your spirit in a new and exciting way in the next couple days. Love y'all.
Deuteronomy 6:10-12 reads, "And when the LORD your God brings you into the land He swore to your fathers, to Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, that He would give you—a land with great and splendid cities that you did not build, with houses full of every good thing with which you did not fill them, with wells that you did not dig, and with vineyards and olive groves that you did not plant—and when you eat and are satisfied, be careful not to forget the LORD who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery."
I'm in a season of transitioning from a prophet's room to a new residence - unknown to me at this moment because God hasn't fully revealed my next location. That's neither here nor there; He's a faithful provider and I trust Him completely. I know for a fact that everyone can't live that kinda faith life, but I'm getting used it - finally. For real, this time. He does come through and it's a waste of energy to get all worked up while waiting. I've been homeless before and lived in my car so if that's what He has for me for another season ... I trust Him completely.
The interesting thing about this is as I started my run this morning, Holy Spirit asked if I remembered the verse about living in homes you didn't build. I said yes and He let the revelation flow.
So, on the west side I live in a prophet's room that was prepared for me last year. Periodically, I've looked for my own place because I don't choose to live in someone else's home, right? That's not my first choice. I'm thankful for the God-ordained space, of course, but I'm an introvert who doesn't mind if I don't see anyone outside of my immediate family for days at a time. But, God has always done something to distract me from looking and keep me here.
I told Him (several times recently) that I've been living in someone else's home for too long now. And when He spoke as I ran He gave me understanding that I've been living Deuteronomy 6:10-12 by living in a home that was already furnished and established and filled and I didn't have to build. I was just able to move right in with my belongings. No deposits, no earnest money, no mortgage process, no buying a refrigerator, window coverings, washer and dryer or anything else I'd have to buy if buying my own home. Not to mention I'm in one of the most-expensive housing markets in the nation and this is my second home.
You know I stopped, right then and there, telling Him anything about my next housing situation and decided to be thankful. And let me tell you ... this was one of the sweetest corrections ever. Dude, I'm so spoiled.
So, here's the wisdom. Some of you out there are like me and are living in someone else's home for a season. Be thankful. You're living in a house you didn't have to pay for. Yes, you may be paying rent. That's expected, but you're not paying the property taxes or other things mentioned above because God has someone else foot the bill for you. Be thankful. And trust Him completely where you are. I'm a witness that when you think like He thinks about your living situation, aka seek The Kingdom first, He'll be motivated to open the door to your next.
Please release verbal agreement that the place God plants me on September 1, 2018 will be even betterer than where I've been this last 18 months. Thank you.
I bless you in Jesus' Name.

I have a lot to share tonight.
First, God is magnificent beyond my limited human vocabulary. I celebrate His majesty and honor the role He occupies in my life. There was a time, a few years ago, when I yelled at Holy Spirit saying our lives are a game between Them and the enemy, and we're just being volleyed back and forth like tennis balls in a match. Today I've matured like I never expected or knew was possible, and am now able to enjoy the adventure as a Son of God instead of a slave (victim).
The pic above is of the Alaska Airlines Disney-Pixar Incredibles 2 livery. God knows I LOVE Disney and He favored me with a ride on this plane today. My 59th flight of 2018. I have a little contest going on my FB page asking who can guess my flight total by year end. Shout out to the frequent fliers and travelers who read me. Big blessings to you in Yeshua's Name.
Switching gears real quickly.
I recently had a night dream in which the enemy was attacking me and I awoke frazzled. This happens to us all from time to time. We usually pray until calm and then move on, right? Well, on this instance, The Lord stopped and counseled me before I just dropped it. Holy Spirit reminded me that when He sends dreams that we forget or don't pursue in prayer they're always recorded in our spirits so that they can be manifested through praying in tongues, etc. I've been sharing this revelation with people for years when they say they never remember dreams or missed parts or all of them. Just spend time with Ruach and He'll bring those to your mind in prayer ... or whenever He's ready. Try as we (I) might, we do not get to boss The Lord around. That reminds me of something that happened yesterday, too. I'll add that if I remember as I go on.
He said the enemy stores those harassment-event dreams in our spirits as the counterfeit of Him storing godly dreams. Makes complete sense. Sometimes those demonic dreams shake us and leave us uneasy throughout the day or whenever we recall them. Our spirits need to be cleansed of those dreams and not only 'pray against the events' as most people advise. Yes, we do need to pray against those events so they don't come to pass at all or they're lessened in damage and trauma, but our spirits need ministry as well.
If you're new to the revelation of ministering to our spirits you may not understand how powerful it is. I'll tell it you like God told me during BitS 2017. I was fussing (I've really gotta chill with this, I know, but seeing as He's the closest thing I have to a husband that's always around, He gets it and He gets - understands - it) about all the promises in The Word not being available to me and my life constantly being a mess. The Lord said to me: You need to grow up. You're just as carnal and soulish as you can be. Yes, you have good faith and you know a lot of The Written Word, but you're immature in spirit and that's why you can't handle anything and fall apart at the drop of the hat, and why you don't have big authority to pull heaven into your realms.
If we (you, 'cause I'm already going after it) want God's authority on earth, our spirits must grow in maturity. Mature spirits have power on earth. The demonic gets this and enjoys how powerless The Body of Believers is on earth. We chase fads, big names and buildings because those things can be achieved by sheer soul power which is easier to come by than trial-produced spiritual growth. Soul power is will. Soul power is evidenced in all those mega-successful people who don't commit to God and don't sell out to the devil but still make it.
This is another reason we need to mature in spirit. Believers often claim God has ordained whatever they're doing because they're able to do it. That's not always true. He doesn't overwrite our will (soul), and when we've set our minds on something whether He's in it or not, we can manifest just about anything; including a mega church building. Not to mention that if we're going ahead with something without God, the enemy comes along to help us be rebellious and that becomes a demonic contract.
Switching gears again.
Saturday morning (8/4/18) I had a dream that I don't remember most of. What I do know is that I was with my son and God worked something out miraculously. This is where the plane above comes in (you can follow my travels on my IG; click the pic above).
Since June I've been agreeing in prayer with Z and Patti Cake for God to reveal the dates for me to go visit my son. God picked August 6-8. How do I know? First of all I had nothing scheduled those days unintentionally and no one even made any attempts to book me for those days. Then two weeks ago Bryan texted and said he was opening a new barbershop August 7. I checked my calendar, and as I said, those three days were wide open and said I'd check the flights and come since I was free. Lastly, Patti was off those same days. The only issue would be the plane tickets. I fly Alaska and it's never a good idea to buy a ticket less than 21 days before you want to fly; 'cause the prices are jacked up. I decided I'd beg for a seat instead (aka fly standby).
It wasn't looking good for me flying standby and I almost dropped $500 one way yesterday to make sure I could make this trip. Almost but not really because of the dream about God working some thing out miraculously. Well, I was the twelfth person in line begging for a free seat on this plane by the time I arrived at the airport this morning. I had Prince, Selena, Patti, Z, my mom, Sharon, and I think Tam, agreeing for a seat for me. I've got a fantastic group of intercessors, man. They don't play. Let me tell you ... not only did I get a seat, but I got a premium seat. My Dad has spoiled me and I do not like to sit in the butt anymore. When you become a frequent flier you'll get serious about your seats, too. The Lord worked that out real good. Big praise to You, Jesus!
Switching back to a mature spirit.
God got me on the plane with no issue, but I still don't know if I'll be able to see Z while here. Except that God's gonna work out something miraculously. 😁 His father loves the control the natural court system gave him, and he doesn't like to let me see my son. My spirit is bigger now than it ever has been and so even though I may not get this visit, I'm content, joyful and rejoicing in everything God has done up to this moment, and am looking forward to more with great anticipation. I told The Lord I want to see Z, of course, but not my will, His be done. I'm not crying, whining, acting a fool in any way or fussing. That is so huge for Zari, and such a testimony of the power of maturing in my soul AND spirit.
To be even more transparent I had to repent to Jesus earlier and apologize to my angels. I asked for a specific parking space at the airport this morning but ended up parking a few spaces down. I had the nerve to tell these supernatural beings that wasn't exactly what I asked for. Ayudame, Dios. Seriously ... The Lord has me so spoiled it just don't make no sense. I don't know how He puts up with me. But He found something He enjoys because He keeps hanging around. 😊
God of Maturity, I thank You for growing me up and for your longsuffering and unlimited patience while doing it. I thank You for every trial that I've passed successfully and gained earned authority. I thank You for the trials I have to repeat because I didn't get it the first time or times around. I thank You that when you check records You reward me with abundance for every hardship that I overcome. I thank You for courage to face those hard things so that I can receive every blessing of my original design. I glorify You in all circumstances. Big honor, big praise, big love to You, Father! You are The Most! Amen.
Please release verbal agreement for supernatural pricing for all airlines tickets that need to be purchased by ZB Inc. and each #SY5779 conference attendee coming to get some good deliverance for the new year ahead. And that God reveal to Patti and I who to award the sown registration to. Thank you.
I bless you in Jesus' Name and authority. And an extra if you read this whole thing.
