Your Wonderful Health! Why Nothing has Changed!

Father’s will, desire and design is for your wonderful health—and nothing has changed that!

Holy Spirit directed me to share this with you, especially those who have been battling fear and angst regarding the p&ndemic and potential v&cc&nes.

The good news is that nothing has changed regarding your wonderful health!

The fact of the matter with a health scare, or p&ndemic, or v&cc&nes is that it hits us all where it hurts. There is no one on the face of the planet who has not been touched by sickness in a painful way.

Yet, Holy Spirit said: “The good news is that nothing has changed regarding your wonderful health!”

Testimony

Let me share a testimony with you.

A few years back when I was in a difficult place on many fronts, and quite honestly, not giving thanks about it, the Father stopped me in my tracks with what He told me: “I am giving you what you want.”

I did not understand what He meant, but it did stop my (inner) fussing and complaining and my (outer) fuming.

One thing that happened was that we got sick. Many instances. Rough time.

I knew that Jesus is the Healer; He paid for our wellness and faith is key to receiving. I knew all that. He’d grown me to the point to stop blaming Him when things didn’t work, and to search for answers and solutions instead.

I started with the premise that: 1. Jesus is Healer, He wants us to be well. 2. How do I move with Him for this to be accomplished in my life and family?

That led to a journey.

Journey

  1. acknowledging and releasing bitterness against those I viewed who had passed sickness onto me
  2. allowing fears to resurface and taking them to Father where I prayed through them
  3. asking Holy Spirit to heal all those places and fill them with His Spirit
  4. learning new things about health and the physical body which included: changes in the way I ate (physical), changes in how I processed (emotional), changes in how I understood the body to work and how Father designed it to work.

Physical level

Also, I went after the Word and the Spirit to learn how to live from a place of secure confidence physically and spiritually regarding sustained health. Did you know that the best protection for a plant against disease and pests is health? Build a healthy plant, build a healthy person, and they are impervious to sickness!

From there, I implemented gargling with peroxide after being around people or just getting home from work, school, and the grocery store. It’s a fast way to kill germs without waiting for them to multiply.

Of course, washing with soap (rather than s&nitizers) is centuries-old proven to kill germs. Father told Israel under Moses to wash their hands under flowing water (not standing water) after coming in from the marketplace (public place). I over-washed one of my sons, and had discovered that didn’t help! So, I let the others play in the dirt, and guess what (to my surprise!)? Their immunity was built by washing with soap and water and playing in the dirt. It’s a principle backed in Scripture.

Another physical thing I learned was to take 1-2 drops of organic oregano essential oil diluted in olive oil inside a capsule after being in a situation where there could be exposure to sickness (give it to whole family who is old enough to be able to swallow).

This product can be taken during cold/flu season: SuperLysine by Quantam Health.

Adding more greens to your diet.

Turning off the world, decompressing, and going to sleep at a decent hour. BTW: Decompressing is so key. Shut out the noise and stop work. Do something that helps you unwind. For example: cold or hot shower or bath, playing quiet music, praying or meditating, sitting outside in a nature-setting that’s quiet, reading, deep breathing with/or without calming essential oils such as lavender or rose oil, and/or listening to water sounds.  

Spiritual level

The Lord taught me to pray daily that: “No deadly thing harms us, and Holy Spirit fills us with His life [resurrection power].”

“I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you” (NIV, Luke 10:19).

I had to pray through pain and fears I had ingested and practice praying this until faith arose. Then faith did arise, and I could agree–it is true!

Father designed the physical body to heal. To regenerate at the cellular level, always. In order to move in His design, it is essential to choose well what we eat, to do healthy things like:  move, sleep, drink water, get fresh air, and practice thankfulness.

These are things that I learned, and which have to be put into practice on our end, and do you know what? It works! Because He designed it to work.

Faith + Action = Harvest we like!

Do our part with physical stewardship.

Trust in His part of protecting us.

Keep doing our part.

Keep believing in His part (faith). Speak it [sound of His Word ignites faith, Rom. 10:17].

Be well.

Faith that trusts the Lord takes action. It’s not faith alone with no action. Or action alone with no faith. It is faith in Father, Son and Spirit AND with wise actions that produces the results we want! (James 2:17).

To confirm what Father said to me during that tough time in my life: Yes, He did give me what I wanted—to overcome fear, stress and anxiety and to build health for me and my family.

This p&ndemic has changed NOTHING in terms of what Father designed for your WONDERFUL health. The v&cc&nes are not the protection that is needed. It is Him. Your part and His part together.

Grace

Salvation is a free gift—Jesus did all the work, we only have to use faith to receive it.

For other things, like health stewardship and sickness prevention or recovery, it is necessary for us to apply faith and action. In the places that we don’t get it all right, His grace covers us. I have seen Him do it for me, and He will most certainly do it for you.

Prayer for you

Father, thank You that You do give us what we desire, even though it’s often wrapped in packages we don’t like. Thank you that NOTHING changes Your Word and Your Spirit which is relevant and powerfully effective NOW and is never outdated.

Father, every person who is struggling with fear, anxiety and stress over the p&ndemic and over v&cc&ines and all that has gone with these, I bring them before You. Deliver them. Wash their sins out with the blood of Jesus. Heal them, comfort them. Fill them with Your Holy Spirit. Open their eyes to see and ears to hear what You would have them to—what and where are the solutions You have for their wonderful health which NOTHING has changed.

Restore and do much more, Father, in the mighty name of the Lord Jesus Christ, amen!

Gift

I recorded a soaking prayer that is a free gift for the body of Christ that you can listen to, release fear, anxiety and stress, and build faith. If you’re struggling, it will be the boost you need.

His grace and peace to you,

Cultivate Your Kids!

It is a glorious moment when your child or student steps out and speaks up for Father!

Whether that’s preaching in a youth-led meeting, singing worship songs, leading a Bible study, sharing the Good News in any way, skits and mission trips, or the first steps—accepting Jesus as Savior and/or being baptized–any which way it happens, it is such a moment of celebration!

Great rejoicing!

Parents and youth leaders alike rejoice!

I celebrate with you!

It’s such a powerful witness—even to adults—to experience the purity and conviction from which the children and students speak, sing, or portray.

Lions and weeds

Yet. . .

There’s an enemy, who prowls about as lion, stealthy, looking for who he may eat alive. This is Father’s ancient enemy who hates the witness that these children and students give.

This enemy will attempt to steal the witness of your children and students by tempting them. If they take the bait, he steals their witness, and holds them in captivity (until the sin is repented for—which is always available through Jesus, but there is a better way to keep them from entering that whole cycle which attempts to steal their witness and destiny).

That is why some who started so strong when they were young are now not walking Father’s right paths.

If Father’s ancient enemy cannot maneuver them into sinning, then he’ll sow weeds in the garden of their faith for the purpose of throttling its growth and expansion.

When you’re cultivating a garden, the plants start small and tender. They grow and yield vegetables and fruit. However, it takes cultivation—water, weeding, fertilizer and care for them to become strong and mature enough to yield their specific fruit.

Cultivate your kids!

Your children and students are graced by Father with gifts and a witness for Him now—but they need protection from that prowling lion and they need cultivation of the tender, young plant that they are.

Celebrate and rejoice as they step forward for Father in any way!

Then, add the following prayer strategy for them (daily, if possible).

In fact. . .don’t wait for them to step out, go ahead and add this prayer strategy on their behalf today!

Prayer strategy (daily, if possible)

Father, seal all Your work in my child or student (name them) with Your Holy Spirit. Send Your angels to war on their behalf and to keep their footsteps on Your right paths. Rearguard and seal them and all the progress that has been made with Your glory in the mighty name of the Lord Jesus Christ, amen.

Help Your Nervous System, Soul & Spirit Shift into REST!

You have enough of your own difficulties to deal with in addition to the tumultuous atmosphere in the nations.

This article is to share with you some practical ways to shift your physical body, your soul, and your spirit into a place where you can rest well and heal, daily. It is important that you do for yourself, your family, and to be ready for your “a time such as this” moments (Esther 4:14)!

On one of the health seminars I’ve listened to in the last few years, they were talking about breathing. So many “simple” things we take for granted, like breathing, are so crucial for our life and health! However, Father God “breathed the breath of life” into Adam, and it was noted in Scripture, so that should be a clue to its importance!

One of the presenters had made huge gains in recovering her health by working on mindful breathing—not huge gulps of air, or deep breaths, but focusing on light breaths which are slower with emphasis on coming from the abdomen. What she said about this one study stunned me in the great change it’s been, but made complete sense. She said that a study showed that people in the ‘40s took a large percentage of fewer breaths per minute that we do now, and it’s documented. What that means is that they were physically, and in their nervous systems, more at peace than our generations are—and therefore, healthier. As a result, they breathed fewer breaths a moment–lighter, and from the abdomen, and it impacted their health in a good way.

We have to be more mindful than they were to do this, but we can have these good effects, too. Practicing these breaths (light, slow, from the abdomen) in the evening in a bedtime routine and in the morning, just a minute or two’s worth, before getting out of bed makes an impact.

Stress—and fear—increase the breaths per minute and keep our nervous systems in hyper-drive. In that state, we don’t go into the daily rest-and-digest which is the healing state that Father God wired our bodies to be in—daily. It’s His will and design that we are renewed daily, a daily regeneration.

I want to share with you a couple things that have been game changers for me. One is GABA, the amino acid. **Let it be stated here that you need to seek your own medical advice, that I am not a doctor, but am sharing this for educational purposes.** If you wake up with your mind racing at night and can’t get back to sleep, or if you’ve been on Keto, your GABA levels may be low. Trudy Scott, the nutritionist, said to take one capsule for stress symptoms to see how you handle it.

I’ve found that two capsules a couple of hours before bedtime really helps me physically shift gears, and has also helped with sleep. I recommend the NOW brand GABA 500 mg with Vitamin B-6 to help absorption (available on Amazon). Trudy also spoke about that it’s not necessary to get the highest dosage, as in 750 mg or above, and that absorption is key.

Also, turning off the screens and the lights for at least one hour before bedtime truly helps because their lights interfere with your brain’s production of melatonin which help you sleep—and throws your circadian rhythms off.

Finally, I wanted to share you this amazing channel on YouTube. Tim Janis, the composer, has created all these lovely, beauty-filled videos of Father God’s creation set to soothing music or instrumental hymns. He created it because he “wanted the world to be a happier place” and because he wanted to help people “find peace and relaxation.” Bless him! Click here for Tim Janis’s YouTube channel.

If you have his channel turned on before bedtime, but it’s several feet away from you, or you wear the orange glasses that block blue light from the screen (also available on Amazon), then his videos will totally help you shift gears and relax.

Shifting gears physically, and I have to add here also shifting gears spiritually by talking with the Lord about your day and handing over your burdens to Him, help your nervous system come back down from the hype of the day into peace and rest. That helps you go into much better sleep. Relaxation into sleep, not just dropping off from absolute exhaustion, helps your body go into rest and restoration mode—where it repairs itself overnight as Father God created it to do.

Happy Rest and Healing!

Health, Healing and Life is your Heavenly Father’s Will for You!

There are so many factors involved in whether or not sickness sticks. Sickness and germs are in our world. In fact, I recently listened to a broadcast where they cited a study conducted in major cities across the globe and guess what? All the major pathogens were found in the air in those cities.

But—people stay relatively healthy. It is the grace and goodness of God.

What we can do on our side is to follow the pillars/principles of health:

1 eat real food, not junk

2 get sleep (start winding down and keep the screens out and big lights off about two hours before bedtime)

3 exercise or some kind of movement

4 sunshine and/or vitamin D

5 drink clean water (get a filter)

6 breathe clean air (change your house filters)

7 manage stress

I add—spend time in the written Word of God and in prayer and reflection (thanksgiving, etc.)

That being said, I have looked for years into root causes.

Several years ago, I was looking into helping a family whose son contracted pneumonia, more than once.

Now, there seems to be a twist on C&vid—that it has hit some people in the form of pneumonia.

There is a factor that there can be a generational weak spot where certain sicknesses seem to hit specific people harder.

I remember my Grandmother saying with grave concern, “Cover your chest or you’ll get the pneumonia.” It was a real fear, because many children died of it, and they could not seem to protect a child once pneumonia started. This became a generational fear.

There are also spirits from His ancient enemy who attempt to gain access by continuous mental assault on places that are already weak.

However, recognizing, resisting, prayer and communion are weapons.

Communion and prayer are actually LIVING. There is LIFE and POWER in them through the blood of the Lamb and your faith combined to combat “weapons” launched against you—these weapons do include sickness.

I felt impressed to look at the CDCs factors for cause for pneumonia and Holy Spirit directed me to translate these from both knowledge gained over the years through Henry Wright’s and Arthur Burk’s ministries and through revelation.

Bacteria infection causes pneumonia.

In the below, I have three categories for each entry: 1. The physical signs in the body 2. What we can change 3. Spiritual exchange that needs to be made.

Physical signs – (can be changed by us) – spiritual exchange

Upper respiratory holding our breath – fear – Holy Spirit breath

Chronic heart issues emotions – fear and/or grief embedded in the heart – Christ, Son

Chronic lung breath – connect also to muscles/Exhorter (fear and/or sin not cleared out) – Holy Spirit

Diabetes factor – rejection from father – acceptance by Father

Immune compromised – feel victimized/not discerning between right and wrong and/or not getting wrong cleaned up by confession and receiving His forgiveness and His blood – Christ shield

All of these then impact the brain by turning ON the wrong switches. This is connected to epigenetics. The simple explanation is that generational iniquity and generational weak places can cause switches on the genes to be turned on or off. Science will point to all kinds of factors that impact epigenetics, but a main factor is family lines, and family lines, or family health history is connected to the spiritual health of the family. In the case with pneumonia, the wrong switches were on, if it was a somewhat chronic condition.

Yes, the spiritual does impact the physical. However, we can change the outcome, even the expression of DNA, by taking care of business with our Heavenly Father who has already done everything on His end to reconcile us.

I am sharing this with you today, not as an exhaustive study, but as assistance for you and your family in shoring up the foundation by offering a prayer strategy as we stand in this C&vid situation.

*Ten Body Systems ~

Nervous System – Father

Cardiovasular System – Jesus

Pulmonary System – Holy Spirit

Immune System – Prophet

Excretory System – Servant

Below is a prayer guide I wrote that you can use for you and your family. Feel free to adjust it as led.

Prayer Guide

Father, thank You for the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ which covers me so I can come before You. I confess personally and generationally that I have had many fears, and have held my breath. I am offering You the key to these parts of myself to fill me with the Holy Spirit’s breath. I confess I have based my reactions in many cases on emotions rather than truth—that I have learned and acted on fears which have solidified these neuropaths and flipped ON switches in my brain You did not intend—and so Father I give you the key for the Son to live in my organic heart by faith.

Father, where I felt and acted on rejection by earthly fathers, here, come in and cause me to align with truth, I AM ACCEPTED BY YOU as Father and it is the safe place to be. Where I have been victimized and my boundaries not respected or recognized and so I learned that it is to be expected to be victimized, Father, I transfer this key to You. You respect my boundaries and You do not victimize at all, and You furthermore are against bullies. So, adjust me to this truth and settle me that it is OK to speak up for myself with truth and grace and give me emotional confidence in Your protection and light to heal the places I misinterpreted what was going on. Also, Father, I confess all my sins known and unknown against You and people, and the hidden sins in the darkness in my heart. I confess and renounce them and send them to the Cross. I receive Your blood to cleanse and make me clean. Make me new in You.

Christ be my shield on all fronts. Now, I ask You to shield me so I can heal, and release a restraining order to the unclean spirits, and every enemy on every front, that have taken advantage of my weak spots. Cleanse and heal them within me, Father, and make them strong.

I invite You to cleanse, heal, order, align and direct my neurological systems, and the Son to cleanse, heal, order, align and direct my cardiovascular systems, and the Holy Spirit to cleanse, heal, order, align and direct my pulmonary systems to make the crooked places in me straight (down to the DNA) and the weak places (specifically in my brain and other systems) strong. I forgive, release and bless any person who sent an assignment curse or judgment to me, and I place the cross between me and them. Shield me on all fronts Father and bring great redemption here in the mighty name of the Lord Jesus Christ, amen.”

Hope’s Arrival!

Hope newsletter

It started with great joy and anticipation.

As this pregnancy progressed, I experienced a continuous assault emotionally and physically that spiked from the chronic pain with which I’d been living. Pain was constant.

Anyone who has experienced a chronic condition understands the hopelessness that comes as a result.

When my beloved baby arrived, I was almost shocked because the chronic pain obscured my view of the pregnancy.  

Babies are Father’s little love bombs in disguise! Their arrival brings so much healing, life and love to the parents and grandparents. That’s His plan, and it’s life-changing when Father’s design is received and welcomed.

This baby carried hope—which was why mine was assaulted during the pregnancy.

I have to add here that physical and spiritual pregnancies are highly contested. Warfare comes with them. In order to reduce as much of that as possible for the health of the mother and baby, do not speak about them, or limit details, except to those who can be trusted. You are literally birthing Heaven on earth, and that’s an act of war to Father’s ancient enemy. Shield, defend and nurture your precious gift from Heaven. Hint: Do not share on social media and many group situations (or extremely limit and handle with much prayer). Pray over when/where/who you share with. Trusted = extremely few.

If you realize this, but others around you don’t, then entrust the pregnancy to the Lord Jesus Christ, and agree with Him for His words alone to stand over this baby/promise. Pray daily for His strength and shield on the mother/baby, person/promise. Daily apply the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ over the pregnancy. You and He are a winning majority.

Father sent restoration of hope to me with the advent of my baby. It began with his arrival, and grew exponentially, changing my life.

Hope’s arrival is always contested and warred against, Beloved.

On another plane, the challenges of the year 2020 have caused enough pain to obscure the view of hope which is being birthed on earth in a variety of ways. In fact, one of the toughest battles is for hope. Because, Beloved, hope changes everything.

Darkness always comes before dawn, and attempts to obscure hope. There will always, always be hope because it is eternal, 1 Corinthians 13:13. When events and circumstances scream darkness and pain, the point is to steal your hope. By the grace of God, I decree it will not happen! Your hope is secure. Your hope is arriving!

If you are expecting a baby right now, you are birthing great hope.
If you are expecting a promise from Father right now, a spiritual birth, you are birthing a great hope.

My prayer for you

Father, thank You for hope’s arrival! Father, for every person who is expecting a physical baby or spiritual one, please shield, defend and nurture them on every level—spirit, soul and body. Secure their hope by Your intervention and grace, Father. Let Your light shine in through every level of pain, surgically removing it, washing those places with Your blood, and filling them with Your Holy Spirit, and light the fires of joy and anticipation. Nourish their life with Your rivers of water of life. Strengthen, fortify, nourish and satisfy their souls. Send warring angels to fight on their behalf, and ministering angels to minister to and for them. Give them strength and grace for healthy labor and delivery in Your Presence. Seal the pregnancies and births with Your Holy Spirit, and rearguard them with Your glory. Do more than I can ask, think or imagine, as You safeguard these precious arrivals of hope from Heaven on earth in the mighty name of the Lord Jesus Christ, amen.

Note

Hope Streams’ publishes a weekly newsletter which is more frequent than this blog! I have released several hope blessings there (and will do so again) as well as through Hope Streams’ podcast. We’d love to have you, click here!

How do I pray for my child who’s experiencing a generational pattern that I’ve been delivered from?

Question:  How would you begin praying for one of your children whom you see being affected by something like generational anguish, sorry, angst, and suffering? I’m asking as I was delivered from this generational pattern but see it still operating in the life of my child.

Answer:  First, well done on overcoming a generational pattern and then recognizing it in your child! All of us are affected by generational patterns (together with traumas and iniquities), but by and large, most don’t recognize and continue to stay in it.

The great news is that because you’ve overcome this “mountain,” it will be more like “hiking” to bring your children out of this old place and into His new place. It is much easier!

Prayer Guide

Go to Father in a focused time of prayer. (He will show you different aspects to address as you make time to meet Him.)

Confess your family’s sins in these matters, and those committed from these traumas. (The reason you want to pray for your whole family (spouse and all your children) is because generational patterns are family viruses. Everyone is “infected” to some degree though they may not present “symptoms” as this one child.)

Ask the Father to wash those places to the core to Adam with the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ, sprinkle His blood on their conscience, wash them with His water, pour His healing oil into the wounds, fill them with His Holy Spirit, and rebuild them.

Ask that what you prayed through, worked through, overcame to be instated on their behalf.

Decree that their sins are forgiven, their debts are released.

Ask the Father to seal all this by the power of His Holy Spirit and rearguard it with His glory, and shield them while they heal, releasing as many angels as it takes to war for and minister to them.

Rebuild

After you’ve worked through this on the spiritual level for your family, using the above as a prayer guide, there will be a release. You will feel a load lifted from your spirit and also in your family’s atmosphere. Yay!

Then, comes the time of your partnership with the Holy Spirit in the rebuild process. Patterns, especially generational ones, are deeply ingrained in the brain and behavior process. You will notice good forward motion after the intercession work, but there will still be a time of keeping your antennae up for those brain and behavior responses in your child which need to be adjusted and re-aligned that you’ll recognize, having climbed that mountain and overcome it yourself.

Apply love and truth in various ways.

1.Defensive application. When your child “flares” up, decree quietly (or in other room), “Your sins are forgiven and your debts are released.” Bless him/her as you call him/her into alignment with Father’s purposes. As he/she calms, take that opportunity to move to reconciliation. That’s your “moment” to show mercy, which is love, and speak whatever Holy Spirit gives you, which is truth. That “moment” of recovery is rebuilding—those brain and behavior responses are being adjusted and re-aligned by your spirit-first response.

2.Offensive application. Pray and dedicate your plan of a special time with your child to the Father, asking for extra grace, time, energy and a holy communication between you two. Do something kind with time that speaks your child’s language. A drive, a walk, a coffee date, something and someplace with just you two. Pour out the love and goodness on this child. As you sense the openness and timing of Holy Spirit, ask if your child feels this way or that way (you’ll know what to ask)? Share your understanding of that particular trouble, and about the “mountain” you climbed and overcame with respect to age-appropriateness. Let your child know you are praying for him/her, and this didn’t start with him/her, but he/she will overcome. Your child knows the burden and trouble this is, but it feels so personal that he/she has already made vows and judgments in these matters against him/herself. Sometimes, a huge forward motion comes in being heard, understood, and discovering that it was beyond them (as in, not originating in them, and thus so personal, because it already feels super personal). Always, you are on his/her side, even when one or both of you is tired and/or fussy!

Gold Medalist

Your child (family) is in a privileged position because you’re an overcomer and are using your Gold Medalist skills to assist their training. Everyone is called by Father to overcome specifics from their generations—and then to move into much more, including their own destiny and inheritance. He’s called us to be more than overcomers, Romans 8. This starts by overcoming specifics we’ve received from our generations. The younger the overcoming starts, the higher and faster our children go into their destiny! Your child is overcoming young, thanks to you, and will be rocketed forward, thanks to Father!

Resources

Daily Cleanser is a turbo-booster for individuals and families. Even children sin, and the sin junks up and starts patterns that become more difficult to break, or adjust, later. Playing the Daily Cleanser nightly, or weekly, for your family makes a huge difference. After listening nightly, children, teens and adults awaken refreshed. What seemed to be a mountain that couldn’t be overcome yesterday begins to shrink to the molehill it is today!

Kingdom Kids – The New Normal!

Children create headlines, leading adults in prayer and focus during this worldwide trial. They much more easily receive Father’s messages of hope!

This is a major part of the new normal.

Father’s new normal encompasses a return to His ways. We’ve entered the Kingdom Age, and this is the change that many prophetic voices have heralded, and the newness your spirit has sensed. (Note: Kat Kerr shared that we crossed into the Kingdom Age in 2012.)

Extreme good changes are in motion. The Kingdom Age is preparing the way for the culmination of time—and we will see organic life restoration and protection from harm as the Mountain of God rises to its position of imminence. There, “a little child will lead them,” both animals and people! (Isaiah 11:6).

Children (tweens and teens) easily receive what seems to be difficult for adults. This is a reality. Children have purity and clarity in their faith.  Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these,” (Matthew 19:14).

Children are leaders in the Kingdom.

It’s good and right for us to listen and take to heart the dreams, encouragements, words and visions that our children – and other children are voicing.

In the midst of this wonderful new normal, I’m sounding a clear call to protect them.

Father’s ancient enemy hates children because they are “seed,” and His seed crushed the serpent’s head. The serpent attempts to strike due to spite.

Protect Your Kingdom Kids

1.Take to heart what your child is voicing. Write it down privately and consider it, as Jesus’ mother did during his growing up years.

2.Pray and wait for confirmation, if you sense what your child voiced should be shared. Sharing on social media creates a set of challenges that have to be addressed with wisdom and strong boundaries.

3.Know this – in the case that Father confirms your child’s dream, etc. is to be shared, or if your tween or teen receives confirmation to “speak” publically – their voice is powerful.

4.Know also that the Father’s ancient enemy plans to stop them. When they step out, you’re now on the battlefield. Add to your daily prayers: “Father, cover them in the blood of the Lord Jesus Christ, and no warfare can cross the bloodline around them. Lead them not into temptation, deliver them from evil. Holy Spirit, seal Your work in them. Father, rearguard and seal them with Your glory.”

5.Entrust your children to the Father’s care. He takes it to heart when you place what you value in His care, and He is able to protect and guard them beyond your ability to do so (2 Timothy 1:12). This does not exempt you from praying, but it does take an added burden off your shoulders.

6.Speak honor. Raise the honor shield over them. Honor is a shield against jealousy—and jealousy is an issue from Father’s ancient enemy which has amassed much fuel through social media. One way the honor shield is raised entails speaking the good that is true about your child to your child and about them.

7.Keep your family spiritually clean. Daily communion helps you stay in daily repentance. This creates a significant adjustment in the spiritual atmosphere in your home—which impacts your children.

8.Keep your antennae up. Whether it’s “a” moment, or “their” moment, to step forward at Father’s leading, it’s advancing the Kingdom. Thus, it’s opposed. Don’t shake off any uneasiness about a certain friend, an opportunity, activity, etc. Take it to the Father to determine where the uneasiness is coming from. Often, Father guides you in protecting them by causing you to feel uneasy. He’ll cause you to have peace and confidence – even if it’s a faith jump – when it’s His path for your child.

What a joy to be chosen to live in this Kingdom Age and to parent Kingdom Kids!

With this call comes specific dangers that we must be aware of. As they take their place, we must stand in our place on the wall covering their backs, and together, we’re honored to advance the Kingdom.

Resource

The Daily Cleanser is an excellent way to keep your Kingdom Kids clean in a dirty world (physical copy also available). Even if they’re blessed to be surrounded by your love and worship 24/7, there’s still spiritual “dirt” going to the store, school, with friends, etc. The inner “dirt” (responses, vows, etc.) and outer “dirt” (from people, places and things) build up a film that prevents them from hearing from Father as easily over time.

Pop this audio in overnight, or before bed, and awaken spiritually clean.

Kingdom Kids

Your Children, His Kingdom!

Jesus said that adults must become as little children to enter the Kingdom. Since He exhorted us to get wisdom, He wasn’t referring to the foolishness or lack of training children can exhibit.

He was referring to their open spirit, receptivity, trust, belief and faith.

When does a child enter the Kingdom?

At the earliest possible age—which varies from child to child.

From the time we knew we were expecting our children, my husband prayed, “Father, cause them to come to know Your Son as Savior at the earliest possible time.” We didn’t know what time that would be.

To our surprise, they’d all made personal decisions of faith in Jesus as Savior by age six. Some, at age three.

How do they enter the Kingdom?

Through faith.

How do they get that faith?

Hearing!

How do they hear?

If you have the opportunity, speak love and truth (together) to them in the womb. Play certain portions of Scripture, worship and spirit blessings. Bless them while they are in the womb.

When they arrive, continue! Because they soon are on the move, how you accomplish these change, and that’s fine, just continue with adjusting for their stages.

At the earliest possible time, have them listen personally to certain portions of Scripture. Engage in an interesting way to memorize Scripture. Some churches participate in AWANAs which is a weekly children’s program based on Scripture memorization. The Cubbies group focuses on children 3-4 years old; its mascot is a little Bear and his adventure stories and weekly Scripture.

You don’t have to go to certain places to memorize Scripture, or be in particular programs.

But, find a fun, sing-songy way to get Scripture in them.

Night is such a pivotal time. Playing certain portions (and I say certain portions because they do not to hear “In the last time there will be awful days,” etc. at night!) at night just saturates their spirit with Scripture and builds their faith without any work on you!

What happens then?

The Holy Spirit activates their spirit with faith and reminds them of the Scripture they’ve heard. He also speaks to them directly.

Why do parents need to know this?

Because Jesus said do not hinder the children in coming to Me.

1.Parents can hinder their children? Yes! How? By putting “our stuff,” or our religious affiliations’ “stuff,” or our “family stuff” on them.

Some churches have many protocols for how and when a person can be saved and/or baptized.

When your child begins talking to you about being concerned about hell, about sin, about Jesus, THAT is their appointed time of salvation.

Your only job as parent is to work with the Holy Spirit and not hinder your child. How? Pray simply with them after you’ve simply explained that “all have sinned,” that “Jesus took the sin for us,” and that “you believe with your heart and confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and you will be saved.”

That’s it!

Be prepared that it may be much earlier than you expected. But, it’s no surprise to the Father who is calling them by His Spirit and quickening their faith as He reminds them of the Scripture they’ve heard!

2.Parents can hinder their children by publicizing what’s private.

Our children speak from their spirits so many times. It’s precious. It’s golden treasure on earth. What is our response as parents?

Our model is Mary.

1.She had time for Jesus – which we have to be intentional about because of the crazy-busy expectation of life in our current age. Be intentional, it’s worth it.

2.She recognized those moments. Anna and Simeon. The wise men. The angelic-led escape. The boy Jesus teaching in the Temple and his unusual response to her.

3.She kept her heart open. She listened. She recognized and noted those treasures. She most likely had some conversations with Him about treasures.

4.She kept it private. She treasured these things in her heart. Not on social media. Or in family or church gatherings.

The Kingdom

The Kingdom is coming to you through your child-like attributes (open spirit, receptivity, trust, belief and faith). The Kingdom is coming to you, the King is speaking to you, through your child.

It may not look like you expected, but it is literally coming to you.

It’s our joy and honor as parents to be ready to welcome our children, and His Kingship and Kingdom through them! May the King and His Kingdom be welcomed in your home and through your children!

Do Not Send Me from This Place UNLESS Your Presence Goes with Me!

We sold our house at the direction of our Heavenly Father—with no place to go and no further plans in sight. It sold quickly and at full value, too! My dad had been promoted, unexpectedly, to his home in Heaven just months before. In a turn of events, my husband now traveled. There, I found myself with two small children and a health issue facing packing, moving, and no idea of where we were going next.

I trusted the Father about His direction; He’d made it very clear what we were facing and the fact that we needed to sell and move. But, neither my husband nor I had any idea of where to go. Thankfully, our friend advocated our case with his friend and a rental house was opened for us. Last minute, miracle provision!

We moved in to the rental house, still with no idea of which way to go. The house was situated in the midst of beautiful trees in a relatively quiet neighborhood, nice! However, within yards, it backed up to a stadium hosting football games. The area turned out to be a sound portal, and I am super sensitive to sound. The first night we were there, we walked in and felt a spirit of rage.

Let me back up a moment. . .before we left our home that my dad built us, I cried and cried to the Father to not send us, or have us leave our safe, beautiful home, unless He sent His Presence with us. Prior to that time, I had my dad to depend on. For any major decision we faced, his confidence, peace, wisdom and prayers (and my mom’s) could be trusted—and were given in our native English language. I did not have to decode, or translate, his answer between earth language and Heaven language (which takes some learning and growing). I knew when our home sold that He’d answered my prayer, and was not sending us without His personal Presence to us.

Thankfully, I had that confidence of His Presence to take with me to this place of uncertainty. As shaky as I felt, we started to pray (and after some heavy losses, weren’t exactly in full faith confidence). Yet, almost immediately, the spirit of rage cleared the room. That was encouraging—and confidence building!

In the eleven month transition we lived there, I learned a lot (to put it mildly). Every home, apartment, dwelling of any kind, and the land, where we live is an actual assignment. We are called to walk and talk with Father. Through this relationship, His kingdom is expanded in our hearts and lives—and through us, to our family. Through us, it’s expanded to the physical dwelling we live, and to the land.

Some dwellings and land have a higher defiled presence than others. All have a history of both good and bad. Good, because God was here first, and bad, because we, humans, fall short of His glory, and it’s imprinted on the dwelling/land.

We discovered that prior to us, people had moved in and out of that rental property with rapid turnover, staying only a few months at a time. I could see why!

Father taught me there about things that are attached to the land, and how they could be handled. He showed me His Presence was with me personally, as He had been with my dad. He answered my prayer to give me a focus that would help me rise above the grief and uncertainty—and through that time, He downloaded revelation that became a prayer that circled the globe. I am still astounded, just thinking of all that He packed in that transition time. From there, He revealed that every season, no matter if we live in the same place or move frequently, is a transition.

Then, He drew our attention back to a piece of land that was personally safe to our family, and made the way where there was—literally—not even a path, to move. When we moved, the atmosphere of our rental house had totally shifted. After we left, people moved and stayed there; the rapid turnover was gone. We’d asked that His Presence would be there, too, and impact the people after us, and that prayer was answered.

Beloved, I share this testimony today to raise a new memorial in my heart of Father’s love and faithfulness in the midst of uncertainty and grief–and for your encouragement. Father is hearing your prayers, even if you cannot get them into words. In each dwelling you reside, and in each land that you live, there are unique assignments. These assignment do have an element of battle. However, with Father, His enemy cannot win and you cannot lose. Each assignment is yours to walk with the Father and with Him, fill those places with His Presence—and He is with you to do it! He will build you, reveal to you, expand the Kingdom in and through you, and He’ll cause you to leave a deposit of His Presence for those who come after you. He will reveal each step of the way, and do immeasurably more than you can ask or imagine, and this is my prayer for you.

My young son has been asking me how Jesus could be God and how He existed before He was born?

Question: My young son has been asking me how Jesus could be God and how He existed before He was born. As I started trying to explain, it all sounded so weird to me, too! I don’t know what to tell him! Any ideas or resources you can recommend?

Answer: Let’s start by celebrating the fact that your son’s big spirit is engaged, aware, and highly active! That’s exactly what we want, as we work with our Heavenly Father to raise these big-spirited children He’s given us.

Next, please be aware that because Father tasked parents with making it better for our children, and the children with building it bigger, that our children are actually ahead of us in many ways. That’s Father original design and intent. It’s good. Recognize this, and be aware there will be many times your son’s questions, observations and wisdom are beyond you. Don’t stress! It’s 100% normal in Father’s design. Even though conventional thought is for parents to be ahead of and train their children in all things, that’s just not how Father designed it. They will be ahead of us in many areas.

In fact, our families are micro-churches, and as such, we learn from our children as well as teach them. Further, they minister to us, and we minister to them! By the grace of God, take a breath, and savor their wisdom and observations. [hint: Write those precious words and observations down and savor them privately like Mary, the mother of Jesus, did.]

Here are some principles from Scripture you can share with him.

Heaven and earth are two different worlds. Heaven is forever.

To come to earth, you have to come as a baby. The time is different in Heaven and on earth. Scripture says one day in Heaven with the Lord is like 1,000 years on earth (2 Peter 3:8).

They are two different places, two different times.

But Father wanted to have a family that was different, different than the angels He already had, so that’s why Jesus came.

He stepped in to earth as a baby, like you, in a different time, in this world, to give his life (his blood) to forgive sins, so that Father would have his family that lasts forever, and is different from the angels.

Recommendation

I love Todd Burpo’s book for children, based on his son Colton’s experience with the Lord in Heaven while he was so sick. It is really easy to understand and will give your son a warm and true picture of the Heavenly Father, the Lord, and the Holy Spirit in the atmosphere of Heaven. This book also talks about Jesus coming to bring the Father’s family back to Him. Click here for his book available on Amazon.
