Win Souls To Your Church? Or Into The Kingdom of GOD?

Proverbs 11:30
The fruit of the righteous is a tree of life; and he that winneth souls is wise.

We all have heard this scripture quoted, generally used to support the doctrine/teaching of modern day evangelism....or 'winning souls' to Christ.

We all have had our hands in handing out Chick tracts, knocking on doors and witnessing to lost souls who choose to stay home from church...or just happen to be home.

The most famous of 'door knockers' are the Jehovah's Witnesses.  They will knock on doors in rain, snow, sleet or hurricane....winning 'souls' to the Kingdom Hall!

Now, allow me to dissect that little saying, that phrase, that is so easily quoted (and practiced) among charismatics, pentecostals and the all around religious.



The greed word for winneth in Proverbs 11 is 'laqach,' which means 'to take, get, fetch, lay hold of, seize, snatch...'

Nothing here even hints to salvation.

In the Old Testament, it was a common practice-and even a command of God at times-for people to forcefully seize their 'enemies' and takeover their lands, homes, regions, families and the such.

The art of 'winning' speaks to a battle.  In the Old Testament, there wasn't a 'battle' for souls.  Salvation-nor the Holy Ghost-was given.  So NO ONE was born again.  

The art of 'winning' in this context in Proverbs 11 means that the person God gave instruction to go and possess a land, or seize the people in the Old Testament...THEY are wise.  And that wisdom, those strategies used to 'win' those many battles against the many 'ites' of the Old Testament always came straight from God.

(Even in the New Testament, there was no 'battle' for souls.  Jesus Christ of Nazareth won EVERY and ANY battle there would ever be for our souls at Calvary....AND at the Resurrection!)

That scripture has absolutely NOTHING to do with modern day evangelism. That is not a directive from the Throne Room to go and 'win the world for Christ.'

The Word of God says NO MAN comes unto the Father except the SPIRIT OF GOD DRAWS HIM!

No where in the Word of God are we required to 'seize' souls for Christ.  Seizure, takeover, snatching all speaks to a forceful acquisition of one's soul, most probably against the will of that soul.

Even though God has all power in HIS Hand, even GOD HIMSELF does not forcefully 'seize' our souls.  He doesn't just takeover.  When it is our time to be born again, it is the HOLY GHOST who does the convicting, the wooing, the drawing.  

I am leery whenever I hear of people who 'seize souls for Christ.'  They are not seizing souls for Christ.  They are operating in a spirit of control, witchcraft...and most probably seizing the souls of man to be totally submitted to their religious institution...and NOT GOD!

Folks getting saved has absolutely to nothing with your witnessing techniques, or how loving you seem to be.  Or how convincing your 'lifestyle'-no matter how 'holy-may be.  

The act of fishing has little to do with the bait, and EVERYTHING to do with the HUNGER of the fish!

Matthew 4:18-20
And Jesus, walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea:  for they were fishers.  And he saith unto them, Follow me, and I will make you fishers of men.

Mark 1:16-18
Now as he walked by the sea of Galilee, he saw Simon and Andrew his brother casting a net into the sea:  for they were fishers.  And Jesus said unto them, Come ye after me, and I will make you fishers of men.  And straightway they forsook their nets, and followed him.

Mark 1 talks of the Kingdom of GOD...NOT church!

Yes, in Matthew and Mark, Jesus Christ of Nazareth spoke of making the disciples 'fishers of men.'


The Greek word for souls in Proverbs 11 is 'nephesh,' which means 'the seat of one's appetites, emotions, the activity of the will.'

Context, Context, Context!

In its proper context, the word 'nephesh' here also means the actual person.  And not just their wills, emotions and appetites.  

Religious people took Proverbs 11 and ran with it....using this scripture to justify seizing the wills, the emotions and appetites of a person to be totally submitted to their respective religious institutions.  

When in this context, that is NOT what it meant!

If you read the entire chapter of Mark 1, what Jesus Christ of Nazareth was commanding the disciples to do was to present the Kingdom of God to an alternative to RELIGION. (vs. 14)

In verse 21, Jesus Christ of Nazareth went into the church, preaching the Kingdom of God.  In order to enter in, they had to repent FIRST.

For Christ

One of the five fold offices was the evangelist.  Paul instructed Timothy to do the work of an evangelist.  But it was NOT to baptize folks to go to church, or the synagogue or the temple.  When Phillip baptized the eunuch, I don't see in scripture where Phillip referred the eunuch to a synagogue.

As a matter of fact, in the synagogue is where the Kingdom of God message met the most resistance.

Mark 1:22

And they were astonished at his doctrine:  for he taught them as one that had authority, and not as the scribes.

The work of evangelism that Timothy was instructed to do was to point people towards JESUS CHRIST OF NAZARETH.  And HIS Kingdom!

It was in the synagogue where Jesus had to do the MOST deliverance!  Folks in church had unclean spirits...EVEN THEN!  And NO ONE WITH ENOUGH AUTHORITY TO CAST THEM OUT!

Vs. 23
And there was in their synagogue a man with an unclean spirit; and he cried out, saying, Let us alone; what have we to do with thee, thou Jesus of Nazareth?  Art thou come to destroy us?  I know there who thou art, the Holy One of God.  

And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him.  And when the unclean spirit had torn him and cried with a loud voice, he came out of him.

When the REAL JESUS CHRIST OF NAZARETH came on the scene, teaching a 'strange new thing,' what did the church folks say?

Vs. 27 
And they were all amazed, insomuch that they questioned among themselves, saying, What thing is this?  What new doctrine is this?  For with authority commandeth he even the unclean spirits, and they DO obey him.

THIS IS WHAT EVANGELISM is supposed to do!

Point people to the Kingdom of JESUS CHRIST OF NAZARETH!!!!!


Modern day pentecostals and charismatics have used the scriptures, twisted them out of context, as a justification, a marketing ploy, to get more people to attend their churches....

And because more people are coming to your churches, LESS people are entering into the Kingdom of God!

Also, I will add one more thing.

Timothy was instructed to do the work of an evangelist.  The apostles of the early church were given instructions on how to run a local assembly.  What offices to institute.  Their qualifications.  

WE are not instructed to do what Timothy and the founding fathers of the early church were....

Those stipulations, qualifications, specifications and the such were applicable to THE EARLY CHURCH.  

What many fail to realize is that the Church Age is OVER.

We are now in the Kingdom of God.  And in the Kingdom of God....there ARE no 5 fold ministry.  There is no need for it was stipulated to Timothy.  

Those who GOD has called to be in the Kingdom of GOD WILL be drawn NOT by fancy evangelism techniques, weak witnessing ploys, forceful religious and spiritual witchcraft to force people into physical churches, to be faithful to religious organizations and denominations.


You only need ears to hear the call!

"It Would Be Better 4 Them 2 Have A Millstone Around their Neck & B Thrown N2 The Sea..."


In my last 'installment' where I wrote how to recognize a religious spirit in Religious Spirit 201, I briefly go into what a person should expect from someone operating or functioning under the influences of a religious spirit, and NOT by the leading of the Holy Ghost.

I have jumped from 201 to 401 because since writing this post earlier this year, I have learned yet even MORE about the religious spirit.  Its like the Holy Ghost has taken me on a crash course the past few months regarding the religious spirit....and I want to share what I have learned here.

Another 'manifestation' of the religious spirit-and the most dangerous one I have encountered yet-is in the person(s) who 'ACT' all sweet, and nice and kind.  Every time you see them, they are smiling.  Their outward demeanor is so genteel, so caring, so ewwy and gooey, that you will think you have encountered Jesus Christ Himself!

They are squeaky clean.  They (seemingly) have no past.  No history of falling into sin.  Their kids are perfect.  No signs of struggle...they have 'a good reputation' among church folks.

EVERYONE just LOVES them!  EVERYTHING they do is so wonderful!

This spirit doesn't just manifest in a woman, mind you.  It is spirits have no gender.

It is fully functional in a man as well as a woman.

The church world and the religious welcome this man or woman in their midst, in their pulpits, in their concert arenas, on their reality shows, on their tv and radio networks, on their Facebook or blog page because these people are 'squeaky clean.'  They present just the 'right image' of holiness, of righteousness, of perfection....just enough to get more people to come to their church, their concerts, watch their channels or peruse their social media sites.

(Haven't you heard?  Marketing is everything!)

BUT to the truly discerning person, such as myself, we can see straight through the facade.

We can't put our finger on what is wrong.  They don't cuss, they don't cheat, they don't fool around, they don't drink or do drugs.  They've been married to ONE man, ONE woman forever....(just like the Word says...right?  The husband of one wife?)

Their kids ain't never been in trouble, been to jail, aint never rebelled, gets all A's, and every time you see them, they are all cheesing!

But we are to NEVER judge after appearances, people.  EVER!

We who have the Spirit of God KNOWS something JUST AIN'T RIGHT!!!

So we see these people as this:

Everyone else sees the woman in the first picture...but WE see 'THIS' right above!

Everyone else jumps on their bandwagon, eats up any and everything they say, do, write, preach, teach.  But those of us with EARS to HEAR, we can't partake of their meals.  We see filth...we see defilement.  

We see them for what they REALLY ARE!!!!

The ONLY way to make the religious spirit/demon in this person FULLY manifest is to CHALLENGE WHAT THEY TEACH or PREACH.

As long as you go along to get along-to keep the peace-to seem 'submitted' to ALL they teach or preach, then they are loving, sweet, kind, genteel...just like the first picture.  

But once the SPIRIT OF GOD shows you some things that are blatant ERROR in their teaching(s), and gives you the boldness to confront or challenge NOT THE PERSON, but THEIR ERRONEOUS TEACHINGS, then they will turn into this:

All of a sudden you are PUBLIC ENEMY #1 in their eyes.  

They will brandish you, try to tarnish your 'reputation,' (as if by doing so that would somehow manipulate you into doing what THEY want you to do).  

See, to the RELIGIOUS SPIRITS that manifest in RELIGIOUS LEADERS, image and reputation is EVERYTHING TO THEM!  

Because the religious demon has marketed their religious leaders/slaves as 'perfect,' 'holy,' 'clean,' and  'righteous' to the general public, once something DOES come out on them, once a flaw, a sin, IS discovered, they will stop at NOTHING to protect their precious images/reputations!

THIS is why they feel they can manipulate and control others with the threat that if you do not comply they will spread dirt about those who challenge their erroneous doctrines and teachings.  They feel that EVERYONE is afraid of maybe getting a bad reputation, or having their names tarnished...they feel that everyone is a slave to the religious demon THAT DRIVES THEM and EXPLOITS THEM into GOOD WORKS as a means of holiness!


Those of us who have been redeemed by the BLOOD OF THE LAMB, BORN AGAIN, and SANCTIFIED FOR REAL?  

WE HAVE NO FEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!



P U T        U S         O U T!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We are FREE from religion, religious demons, the drive to work, work, work to attain holiness, or to work, work, work at 'protecting our names.'

This is why I say that THIS religious spirit-the one that operates THE MOST in RELIGIOUS LEADERS-is the most dangerous one.  

Again, the best thing you can do-for starters-if you are being influenced by, or sitting up under religious leadership IS TO LEAVE!

They will CONTINUE to do what they are doing.  NO matter how much you confront their teachings, they will continue to teach what THEY will.  NO matter how faithful you may have been in the past to them, once you challenge them, they will TURN ON YOU!  You used to be the best thing since apple you are Beelzebub himself!  

Don't retaliate.  Leave it in God's hands.  God will soon let THEM know YOU BELONG TO HIM!!! And NOT THEM!!!!!!!

I have seen God shut whole churches DOWN because a leader mishandled one of these, GOD'S little ones!
Read your Word....Jesus Christ of Nazareth pronounced judgment to those leaders....

Matthew 18:6

But whoso shall offend one of these little ones which believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.

If you read the whole chapter 18 of Matthew, He wasn't just speaking of children.  He was speaking of THOSE WHO ACCEPT the GOSPEL OF THE KINGDOM AS A CHILD!

In other words, if you humble yourself IN THE EYES OF GOD and receive HIS TRUTH-EVEN when HIS TRUTH is in direct contradiction to what your leader(s) in the church arena (or even outside the church arena-religious spirit ARE operating OUT HERE as well!) teaches or preaches, and those leader(s) try to attack you in any way, it WILL be better for them to have a millstone tied to their necks and for them to be thrown into the sea...

A millstone

If you are encountering attack from a religious leader, STAND STILL AND SEE THE SALVATION OF THE LORD!!!

In just a little while, you will see your enemies NO MORE.

Some of these leaders are just SO hypnotized by the religious demon, they don't even realize they are attacking you.  They may have the spirit of Saul...and you are David.  They love you, but something keeps driving them to throw their 'javelins' at you.  

Yet, you still love them.  You won't put your hands on them.  But you need to do like David did....AND RUN!!!

I wrote in another blog, Endtime Warfare Survival Tactics, Part 1, that RETREAT IS NOT DEFEAT!  You MUST stay mobile.  In these endtimes, RETREAT is a survival mechanism!


Yes, the religious world disdained you, mocked you, tried to make you think you were crazy because you dared to speak what GOD spoke.

They have done EVERYTHING they could to kill you...either literally....or reputationally.  Or spiritually.



Is Religion Your Greatest Investment?

NRA's LaPierre Is The Devil Incarnate

CEO of the National Rifle Association delivered what I believe to be the most deceptive, stomach turning, phoney, hypocritical 'pot calling the kettle black' speech today that I can say I have EVER heard.  (And I grew UP in church and heard doozies of sermons/speeches that were CRAZY!)

Anybody with a lick of sense, and an ounce of discernment/wisdom could see through the fakeness, the smirkness, the utter hypocrisy of this man.

I had NEVER heard of this guy before today.  I watched the whole speech and I wanted to punch my laptop's screen in!  I really did.

LaPierre reeks of a guy who is gung ho of pushing HIS agenda-and that would be to 'protect his God-given right to bear arms.'  At ALL costs.

He went the low route in many points in this speech, citing movies, video games, national tragedy and disaster and blame shifting towards the people who recognize the danger of regular, average citizens having assault weapons or arms.

Not ONE time did he EVER broach the subject or entertain the idea that maybe, just maybe, it is unwise, unsafe and extremely dangerous to have these weapons in the first place!

The police department, the military, those who protect the POTUS-YES, they NEED these weapons because there are terrorists that have these types of assault weapons and other weapons in their arsenal...and many target America-and the POTUS in particular-to harm.

Obama has received more assassination threats than any other POTUS in American history.

One tid bit of information/statistic LaPierre conveniently failed to mention...

Plainly put...LaPierre is a wimp.  But worse than that, he is obsessed with his guns. His way with words and knowing what to say to get to the heart of extremists who insist on packing assault weapons out of fear that someone, some psycho is lurking on every corner, waiting to tick off everybody who goes shopping, to the mall or to school....

The devil knows how to twist facts, too, to make himself seem like his way is the right way.

Did anyone else see STRAIGHT through this guy?????????

I decided to check this guy out and see what he was talking about before last week.  What I found was disturbing!

Earlier this year, LaPierre boldly made a statement, asserting that the NRA won't back down in fighting for Americans' 'rights' to bear arms unless MANY children are gunned down!  He actually numbered a number....

HE SAID ONLY IF 1,000 CHILDREN ARE GUNNED DOWN IN THE SCHOOLS WILL THE NRA BACK DOWN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Read following article from interview from May 25, 2012:

NRA Sets 1,000 Killed In School Shooting As Amount It Would Take For Them To Reconsider Much Of Anything

Read it...and weep....

It is VERY disturbing what this guy said in this interview earlier this year.  VERY DISTURBING!

No one needs to pay attention to this devil.   YES!  I called him a devil!

Another quote from LaPierre:
"Yeah, that's probably the only way we'd reassess much of anything at this point: 1,000 dead kids, shot up pretty good, lying face down in the school auditorium or something like that," LaPierre said, noting that anything less than 1,000 dead kids would not be enough for the NRA to stop urging Congress to pass pro-gun legislation. "I mean, that's just a ballpark number, but I imagine seeing 1,000 or so body bags being wheeled out of a school and a whole town of crying parents would probably make us reflect on our values for at least a little bit."
"So yeah, more or less 1,000 dead kids," LaPierre added. "Something around there. And teachers don't count."

In the speech LaPierre gave today, he seemed like he really cared about America's kids.  But I saw RIGHT through it.  This sick bastard (yes, I said it.  It's in the Bible.  Pray for me.) put on the nice act, the compassionate, caring man who started out his speech paying homage and respect to the Newtown parents who lost their babies....when he could CARE LESS about those babies.  JUST READ WHAT HE SAID EARLIER THIS YEAR ABOUT CHILDREN BEING MOWED DOWN before the NRA would even begin to rethink their stance.

I'm sorry if I seem really angry in my tone, but I AM.

One thing I cannot STAND is a hypocrite who acts like he cares for our children, when he only cares about promoting HIS OWN agenda that can potentially endanger many more kids in our schools....

That's if LaPierre gets his way....

Diseased, Improper Praying: Praying Amiss...

The events of the past few days has birthed a strong desire in many people to pray.  And the desire to pray is a VERY GOOD desire to have, for God tells us that men ought to ALWAYS pray, and never faint (Luke 18:1).

BUT....if people do not know HOW to pray effectively, their prayers can be prayed 'amiss,' which is-according to James 4:3-praying prayers improperly, ineffectively, and in vain.

Religion has taught us that ANY type of prayer, prayed to ANYONE WE CHOOSE, is good and effective.  It has focused on the ACT of prayer, and NOT the SPIRIT of prayer.

Prayer is lauded as good and a proper response-let's say-to a national tragedy.  

As we have all found out this past week, a national tragedy will even bring the President of the United States to his knees.  

And while it is a good thing that people are wanting to and desiring to pray, if the people are not taught HOW TO PRAY, it will ALL be in vain.

And then when the next tragedy happens, people who don't know God will grow even more angry, indifferent or bitter towards God because it will seem to them that humbling themselves and praying 'did not work.'  And the only reason it did not 'work' was because the prayers were all prayed WRONG.

1)  The first 'rule' of prayer is that YOU MUST PRAY TO GOD and GOD ALONE!  I have seen many people the past few days kneeling to statues, holding rosary beads, chanting Hail Mary's and praying to dead saints on behalf of the little kids who were slaughtered last week.  I have to ask myself...'Do they NOT know that these DEAD 'saints' do NOT hear their prayers?  Do they NOT know that you can pray to the devil and his minions...IF you are NOT praying to GOD?????  Do they NOT know if they pray 'to the devil,' that it will INDEED be the devil who answers?  And guess what?  

He won't answer with good things. He won't protect anyone.  He won't bless anyone.  Its his job to steal, to kill AND to destroy.  KNOW HOW YOU ARE PRAYING TO!!!!  Put the beads, the rosaries, the statues and the Hail Mary's are entertaining DEMONS!!!!!  (Remember the movie, Angels and Demons, with Tom Hanks? WHY do you think any and all reference to the Catholic Church always brings about the existence of the demonic...and then it is always in the context that all of mankind is just subject to the wims of the demonic?????  Because the WHOLE Catholic system is set up on DEMONS!)

2)  Prayer that promotes one's own agenda and NOT the will of God is SICK, TWISTED prayer...the Word of God actually calls it 'DISEASED.'  The word for 'pray' in James 4:3 is 'kakōs,' which means 'improperly, wrongly, sick.'  The word 'kakōs' is also the same word used in the New Testament in the scriptures that talks about sickness and disease.  Those scriptures that talks about the sick being healed .... it is actually used for the words 'sick,' 'evil' and 'diseased.'  

What this means is that it is possible to pray prayer that indeed IS SICK, TWISTED, DISEASED.  And that diseased prayer is ANY prayer that is prayed amiss...or wrongly, ineffectively, to the wrong god, in the wrong motive or spirit.

3)  We have been taught that in order to pray effectively, we must be inside of a church building.  We must take on a certain posture.  We must use certain pious and holy sounding words.  Clamp our hands together real tight, close our eyes and pray.  WRONG!!!  While some prayer goes forth that way, I present to you that MOST of THIS type of prayer is NOT heard by God, because it is done religiously.  ANYTHING done religiously will more likely than not be rejected by the Father.  

The awesome thing about prayer is that it can be offered ANYWHERE, and if it is done in the right motive, the right way, to the ONLY GOD, then HE WILL RECEIVE IT!

Psalms 145:18 says God is near to ALL who call on Him.  

If you're a sinner and the Spirit of God is convicting doesn't matter if you're in a crack house, in jail, in the bed next to your lover, or standing over the dead body of someone you just shot.  You can pray RIGHT WHERE YOU ARE and GOD WILL HEAR YOU!  

And NOT only that, but if you REPENT, GOD WILL SAVE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

We see all these people who try to get sinners to an altar and would try to make people believe that repentance and forgiveness of sins can only take place at a church altar.  We have all seen the movies where the sinners walk up the aisle and to the altar to 'get saved.'  NOWHERE in the Word of GOD was ANYONE EVER saved at a temple, a synagogue or a church altar!  In the early church, folks were getting saved EVERYWHERE BUT the temple.  

The word for prayer used in the Old Testament is 'tĕphillah,which means 'a house of prayer.'

This means in the Old Testament-under the old dispensation, there always had to be a place of prayer in order for it to be accepted by God.  We all know this to be true, because God even had strict stipulations on the specs for the temple, the priesthood and ceremonies, spelled in detail in the Old Testament.

BUT look what happens in the New Testament:

The word for prayer used in the New Testament is 'proseuchē,' which means 'a place in the open pray, outside the cities, where they had no synagogue; a place set apart or suited for the offering of prayer; prayer addressed TO GOD.'

Now in the New Testament, prayer is not just restricted to the temple.  It is NOT EXCLUDED from the temple, for even though God broadens the parameters in which man can and should pray (to give men EVERYWHERE a chance to repent), but He gives all a chance to reach out to him. 

There is no special 'place' to pray.  

We have heard of many 'prayer vigils' going on now since the Newtown tragedy.  It sounds real pious and all, but do we even KNOW what the word 'vigil' means?  

A vigil is a watch kept during normal sleeping hours. The act or a period of observing; surveillance. The eve of a religious festival.

Plainly speaking, it is a religious observance.  

I guess the closest thing to a 'vigil' found in the Word of God is when Paul spoke of 'watchings' and 'fastings' in 2 Corinthians 6:5 and 11:27.

But in BOTH instances, this speaks of the trials the apostle had to go through as he was being used to help grow the early church.  We must understand the CONTEXT of these passage of scriptures.  The Early Church went through MUCH persecution and martyrdom.  The Original Apostles-in a sense-HAD to go through all of that in order to fulfill the will of God for THEIR Lives.  

Nowhere else in the Word of God does it says GOD requires that OF US.  

The foundation of the Church, the EKKLESIA, has ALREADY been laid.  It does not need to be 're-laid,' so to speak.  When you have a building-and the building is the EKKLESIA-and GOD HIMSELF has said the foundation is SURE (which speaks to STABLE, UNWAVERING, IT WON'T CRUMBLE), then man in all his pious attempts and good intentions should not and DOES NOT have to turn around and rebuild the foundation! 

(But thats another blog for another day!)

All I am saying is that God required the early Apostles to go through what they went through...He is NOT requiring that of US.

SO we don't NEED to hold vigils, watchings, and fastings as they did.  ALL GOD IS REQUIRING OF US is to PRAY.  

In the Old Testament, priests/flesh had to represent the people to God every year to offer sacrifices/prayers for the people.  But in THIS dispensation, WE ARE ALL PRIESTS unto God (1 Peter 2:9, Revelations 1:6, 5:10).  So we can ALL go to the throne of GRACE and obtain MERCY directly from GOD...FOR OURSELVES!  (Hebrews 4:16)

The only 'middle man' now is JESUS CHRIST OF NAZARETH!  The HIGH Priest forever after the order of Melchisedeck.  That means He lives and reigns FOREVER.  NEVER to die anymore.  HE IS RISEN and AT THE RIGHT HAND OF THE FATHER, FOREVER MAKING INTERCESSION FOR US! (Romans 8:34)

NO MORE NEED for human intercessors!!!

The SPIRIT OF GOD, Jesus Christ of Nazareth, they intercede for all mankind.  

I want you to look up the word 'intercession' in the New Testament:  EVERY TIME the word is used, it is always talking about JESUS CHRIST or the SPIRIT OF GOD interceding on our behalf!  NEVER is it used for a man interceding.

There were human intercessors in the Old Testament, the most popular being Abraham.  Other prophets of old prayed, as well as the Levitical priesthood.  But that was ONLY because they were SET APART, sanctified, for the express purpose of prayer, of interceding on behalf of the people to God.  The people could NOT just approach God, unless, of course, He had allowed it.  The people couldn't just ask for forgiveness for their own sins-if they entered in the Holy of Holies without permission, they would have been struck dead!

We no longer need someone else to pray for us!  

Popular teachers like Juanita Bynum have erroneously taught things like 'you just can't approach God any old type of way.'  They have been SO focused on the Ark of the Covenant, the Holy of Holies, the Tabernacle and all the OLD TESTAMENT revelations and manifestations of the Presence of God that they have failed to graduate to the NEW TESTAMENT in much of what they teach...and because THEY don't have the revelation for THIS DISPENSATION, they teach millions of others what THEY know only.

We don't have to go through lavish ceremonies, wear sheets and veils, hoop, holler, speak in tongues/code language, moan, groan (the SPIRIT of GOD does that FOR US), wear $1000 robes and garb to approach God NOW.  We don't have to get ourselves 'right' and clean up before we enter the throne of GRACE.  The Word says to BOLDLY go to the throne of GRACE...that's in faith, trusting that GOD hears you and WILL ANSWER YOU!!!!!!!!

Teaching like that appeals to our flesh, is religious.  It makes us feel like we have somehow earned the 'right' to pray and that if we are good enough, perfect enough, holy enough, follow all the procedures enough that that will somehow pre-qualify us to get what we ask for in prayer.  


There IS no 'posture' of prayer.  There is no one particular way you have to stand, sit, kneel, or clasp your hands, or close your eyes to pray.  You could be walking or running down the street, and praying.  You can pray at work at your computer....silently.  Charismatics have erroneously taught that you have to 'say the word out loud' in order for it to happen.  THAT IS A LIE!  The Word does NOT need our voice for it to be effective; plus, there are plenty of people who speak the Word, but because they speak it from an evil, unrepentant heart, it is spoken amiss.  The letter kills, but the Spirit gives LIFE.  

If you are wanting to pray, and you know that God is leading you to pray, all you gotta do is talk to God...RIGHT WHERE YOU ARE.  If you're in a place where you can't speak, then just think it.  Isaiah 65:24 says before they speak the prayer, God will answer.  If you don't believe it's true-if you are so convinced that you just GOTTA speak for prayer to be effective-then how do deaf mutes pray????

They cannot speak.  So are they excluded from being able to pray because they don't have the ability to speak????

Of course not!  That is utterly ridiculous!

4)  The prayer language doctrine is a doctrine straight out of hell.  NOWHERE in the Word of God was anyone ever instructed to pray in a heavenly language-in some sort of spiritual pig latin-to confuse the devil.  God doesn't need our code language to answer our prayers.  The fact of the matter is...before we speak or utter the prayer God is able to answer it.  This has happened to me on several occasions, as a matter of fact.  I would be thinking something, and before I had the chance to utter the prayer from my lips, GOD ANSWERED!  I ALWAYS get amazed when He does that!  

The very first person I heard use the terminology 'prayer language' was Oral Roberts.  I have to tell you...Oral Roberts has been the biggest purveyor of doctrinal and scriptural error of the past century.  I am in the process of writing my 2nd book, the Fruits of Azusa, that thoroughly researches the Azusa Street Revival of 1906, as well as ALL the error that was birthed in the organized church system as a result of it.  And in doing my research, I have found a GREAT deal of error was propagated by Roberts.  And he is highly celebrated in the church community.

I won't get too much into detail about the prayer language here.  All I will say is that if you don't have the 'prayer language,' DON'T SEEK IT.  It is a language of the devil...and if you pray in tongues, your prayers are just as sick, diseased and twisted as Holy Mary's, and Catholic prayers to dead saints.  Except you are praying STRAIGHT to demons and fallen entities.  


5)  NOW....the Word of God DOES tell us HOW TO PRAY.  

The Word does not say to pray to dead saints, to Mary, in code language/tongues, or in a building, or at a Wailing Wall.  We all know the scripture on THE LORD'S PRAYER well:

Our Father, which is in Heaven, Hallowed be thy Name, thy Kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven.  Give us this day our daily bread, forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us.  
Lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil.  
For thine is the Kingdom, and the power, and the GLORY forever.  Amen
Matthew 6 and Luke 11-as well as James 4-are excellent scriptural references to prayer.  I suggest you study them for yourself....extensively.  Pray about them:  ask the Spirit of God to reveal TO YOU what HE WANTS TO SHOW YOU ABOUT PRAYER.

Stop buying all these books on prayer.  Most of them are colored with charismatic language and stock full of error....only teaching you to pray wicked pray amiss.

♥ 2 ♥: Mothers, Your Kids Need HELP (for the Newtown Kids)


The Newtown Massacre of 20 children a few days ago is still fresh in all our minds and on our hearts.  There is not one mother, not one parent, whose heart does not break, or even who does not even shed a tear, over this horrendous tragedy.

After getting over the shock of the murders, my mind went immediately to the parents of Adam Lanza.  The mother, in particular.  I empathized with her because she was a single mother of a mentally ill kid.  Even though she had money, resources, Adam's father was involved with him...and I myself have none of those resources available to me...and I myself know the struggle of raising troubled kids.

To protect the privacy of my children, all I will share is that at one point in their lives, my children had to deal with some form of mental illness, even a learning disability.  I have not had the opportunity to have a father who was actively involved in my kids' lives, neither have I had the support and resources that Nancy had.  

According to the following article, Nancy was living off hundreds of thousands of dollars in alimony and child support.  Peter Lanza, Adam's father, is a VP at a major corporation.  This family had all the money in the WORLD...enough money to get Adam the help he obviously so desperately needed.  

Yet with all our limitations, none of my kids has gone out here and murdered 20 kids.  My kids have adjusted well and/or dealing with their issues, by the grace and power of God.  I can admit, some of my ways of dealing with the issues has seemed act of tough love.  But I did what GOD instructed me to do, and it is working well for us.

I guess the point of my blog today is to question some parents about the choices they make, in particular, as it pertains to their kids.  


When I look at this picture, I see a troubled kid.  If my son went to school with this kid, I would instruct my son to steer clear of this young man.  Look at his affect:  he is looking down, unable to look in the eyes, disconnected.  That's the perception I get JUST from looking at this picture!

Now, I understand.  As a mom, we all want to think that our kids are angels, even if they are, in actuality, demons.  We fall in love with our kids the moment they are birthed into the earth.  The moment the doctor places the bundle of joy on our breasts after we have pushed them out our wombs, we fall in love with this seemingly perfect little angel.  

Our hearts melt and from that moment on, there is absolutely NOTHING we wouldn't do for our kids!

And I guess, that is normal.  We are supposed to love our children.  That maternal instinct to nurture and take care of our young is supposed to kick in at the moment of birth.  

But when that romanticizing of our kids last until they are adults, so much so that we can't see the forest from the trees, til we are in straight up denial about our kids when issues (may) come up.

This past summer, I met a really nice lady who generously offered us a ride to a (christian) overnight camp facility here on the East Coast.  We were given each other's contact information and coordinated the whole ride thing through the camp director.  

On the ride to the camp, I began to discover that the lady's 12 year old son was, well, a little off.  He sat near my son in the mini van and he just couldn't keep his hands to himself, he was always touching in my son's face, and he just couldn't respect my son's boundaries.  After awhile, my son tells me 'Mom!' to get my attention and that's when I looked in the back seat and saw what was going on.  My first instinct, of course, was to just tell the little boy to STOP, but I was riding in THEIR car, so I had to be really tactful.

The mother saw the very annoyed look I had on my face and began to explain to me that her adopted son had a form of autism and apologized.  She began to say how wonderful a kid he was and that, despite his obvious behavioral problems, he was a really sweet kid that meant no harm.  She told me of the difficulties she had with him, since birth.  How he couldn't function at school.  How he got on everybody's nerves, even kids his own age.  

She confided in me of the moment she got him at the hospital as a baby.  She teared up talking about.  It was obvious this white woman who so graciously allowed us to ride with her LOVED this little biracial adopted son of hers.  

When we arrived at the camp, I began to notice as I was checking my son in that this little boy indeed got on everybody's nerves!  Slapping peoples' heads, running, trying to tackle all the fellow campers he hadn't seen since the previous summer, laughing loudly and uncontrollably....

I felt really bad for this mother and father.  They had done all they can to provide this child who had no parents with a loving, safe home.  A decent life.  But he was a HANDFUL!  

When I picked up my son from camp the following week, my son began to share with me JUST how annoying this young boy was.  He told me countless stories of how this young boy got on everyone's nerves, how even the camp staffers at some point seemed overwhelmed with trying to give this obviously challenged young boy the attention he so craved.  

Now, I don't mean to sound like I'm discriminating against kids with autism or disabilities.  I qualified this whole thing by sharing my own struggles as a single mom of challenged kids.  BUT I also have a testimony (God is still working it out, btw) of GOD working it all out.... order for God to begin to work it out, to help with these kids, I had to SNAP out of it.  Come to the realization that HEY, there IS a problem.  Then I had to ask GOD to give me WISDOM on how to deal with the problem.  I did not have the luxury (the money, the support, the resources, etc) to be in denial or to romanticize about my kids.  I had to face it HEAD ON, see the whole thing for exactly what it is.

AND I had to practice precautionary and safety measures, at some point.  (There's that wisdom thing kicking in again!)

With that being said, I have to raise my eyebrow at Nancy Lanza.  

The article above gives us insight onto what type of woman Nancy was.  

First, this single mother who had all money could buy frequented bars.  She was an avid gun collector....and not only that, she brought her YOUNG SON to the firing range to teach him how to fire arms!!!!



WHY would a mother ever place a gun in the hands of a mentally disturbed child?  WHY would she go as far as to teach him how to fire a weapon????  

I just keep picturing that little boy who went to camp this past summer with my son with a gun.  NOT a pretty picture!

Im a sharpshooter myself, but would NEVER teach a child to fire a weapon, ESPECIALLY a child with head issues.  

Look at that picture of Adam again.  

Does he LOOK LIKE a kid who should have EVER had access to weapons in the first place????????????????

I can tell you what happened:

There are some mothers who are SO in love with their kids that they cannot see the forest from the trees regarding their kids.

When they see their 20 year old disturbed son, all they see is the precious little baby boy they brought home from the hospital...NOT the mentally challenged, disturbed, somewhat dimented young man that stands before them!

And Nancy was seriously deluded.

She was a teacher, so I take it she was smart.  She could have plugged into resources for her son, if need be.  Some of those resources may have involved institutionalizing Adam, imprisoning him, locking him away, so he could have gotten the help he needed.

He couldn't feel pain????????  What the??????

I know that there is this trend thats taken place in the past 20 years or so, where society has wanted to assimilate the mentally ill into mainstream society with the general public.  Forbidding opportunities at housing, employment, education, etc. to those who are mentally challenged in most of the country is now prohibited by the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act).

And while I think that is a wonderful idea for those who are JUST disabled PHYSICALLY, I DO think that whole thing needs to be rethought as it pertains to those who are MENTALLY challenged.


Well, because, as we have noticed for this past year especially, there has been a STARK increase in the amounts of murders by people who were mentally ill to some capacity.  And since this country has done a really poor job of researching and treating mental illness, we SHOULD NOT grant total rights and privileges to those who we even SUSPECT are mentally challenged, because we don't know to what extent their mental illness lies.

In other words, there is a broad spectrum to the mental illness triangle.  Some are slightly mentally ill, while others are psychopaths and sociopaths, a danger to themselves AND to others around them.

Mental illness transcends race, culture, class, OR religion.  NO one is immune from it.  There ARE no vaccinations from getting mentally ill.  Some are born with a proclivity and a vulnerability towards developing mental illness, while others develop mental illness later on in life, due to life challenges they face along the way.  And a lack of effective coping mechanisms to deal with life.

Mothers, we know our kids better than ANYONE ELSE.  Better than teachers, better than social workers, better than the police or the judge.  EVEN better than their peers and friends or associates.



SIMPLY GET HELP FOR YOUR BABIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

If it involves calling child protective services YOURSELF to get help, GET HELP.

If it involves calling the police and getting them into the system (because, unfortunately, that is the only way many are going to be treated is if they FIRST get into 'the system), THEN GET HELP.

If it involves locking your child up because he is a danger to himself, to you or to others, yes, you love your child, but you love your child ENOUGH to lock him up so he can get the HELP HE/SHE NEEDS!

If you have a mentally challenged child, your life is no longer your own.  You don't have the luxury of being a gun collector, or smoking weed to cope, or drinking the problem away.  YOUR CHILD NEEDS YOUR HELP!!!!

You cannot worry about what the Joneses are going to say.  Im sure Nancy was worried about what the Joneses up there in Newtown would say....and now she, Adam and 26 more people are gone because she would not REACH OUT and GET HELP!

I'm not writing this to hurt anyone, or put anyone down.  I am writing this as a mother.  A mother who has children herself, who understands, and who is TIRED of seeing the carnage!

We as a society can no longer turn the other way and pretend like we don't see what we DO SEE.

NOW.........DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Confessions of An (Almost) First Lady

I write this to reach out to women who have been bamboozled, hoodwinked, tricked into a set up by the enemy.  You have been lied to, made to believe that your 'assignment' by GOD is to do the 'work of God' by the 'man of God's' side.  You have felt 'a pull, a connection, a link to the man of God and you have believed it was God that told you you would be the first lady of your church.

I know from experience that this delusion and deception is rampant in what is known as the body of Christ.  I also can attest to the FACT that for women, this phenomena is GREAT.

In order to understand what goes on in the mind of a woman who is under this deception or delusion, you have to understand the CULTURE, the ENVIRONMENT, that she is raised in.

MOST of these women are raised up in church.  In VERY religious settings.  All or most of the families are preachers, so it is EXPECTED for the little girls to grow up and marry a preacher.

These little girls are groomed almost from birth by mothers, aunts and grandmothers-not to mention by proud dads, granddads and uncles-to be a first lady.  Most of these religious settings do NOT accept that a woman can be called to preach and teach the gospel (as well as I know that some of you don't believe it either).

So because the women are 'sat down' and 'silenced' in these religious settings, the next best thing for them to be are first ladies.  Their church will accept that.  Their families will accept that.  But absolutely under NO circumstances can a woman EVER be called to preach. Or let alone pastor!

It is 'her place' to be in the first lady's seat, dressed to kill, loved, adored and sometimes even worshiped by the congregation.

It is in her role as the 'first lady' that it is acceptable for her to teach or preach, but then only to the females of the church.  She would serve as a spiritual 'mother' of the church, a role model for all the ladies to follow.

She is called to stand by the man of God's side, no matter WHAT goes on behind closed doors.  He can preach the house down behind the pulpit, be gay or on the DL, be a FLAGRANT adulterer, a pedophile, stealing from the people, he can be beating the living daylights out of her and the kids, ruling his house with an iron fist....

But as long as the 'man of God' is happy, preaching the folks happy, putting on a good show, making the people feel good about themselves, then all is good.  The money will start rolling in, and pretty soon pastor can get 'first lady' ANYTHING her heart desires!  No longer a fledging, struggling ministry, the church will finance and take care of ANY venture the first family presents.  They are guaranteed a home, a car, nice clothes, a pension, vacations...the kids will be able to go to private schools.

Even if the first lady KNOWS that what's going on financially behind the scenes is wrong, she won't divulge.  She will play along, sometimes out of fear of being harmed by the pastor, or out of fear of being the broke, disgusted and busted ministry team and family they were when they first started out in ministry.

Sometimes the 'first lady' really is unaware of what's REALLY going on, in her marriage, in the ministry, in her family.  She has been literally brainwashed and whipped by the man of God so that she cannot see the forest from the trees.  She got her head up so far in the clouds she couldn't see what was going on down here on earth if she plunged 1000s of miles deep within its core...poor deceived woman!

Whatever her mindset, the woman plays along with a fantasy, sometimes for YEARS.  She plays this religious game of 'I feel like something is wrong, but Im not gonna do anything about it' or 'That is just the enemy trying to break up our marriage and the ministry..'  Both straight up LIES from the DEVIL that he convinces her of so that she will continue to play along in HIS plot-and NOT God's plan-to deceive a whole flock of people.  And thus further negatively affect the REAL church, the Ekklesia.

In the church setting, WOMEN ARE TAUGHT TO GO ALONG WITH THE PROGRAM.  There are only TWO domestic violence shelters in the whole Orleans parish, and yet there is even MORE domestic violence in New Orleans POST-KATRINA.  And I know that a LOT of it is going on IN CHURCHES.  AND in leadership.

The most famous first family of New Orleans doesn't even live together!

Now Pastor Deborah Morton and her husband, Bishop Paul S. Morton of the Full Gospel Fellowship live in two different states.  She pastors Greater St Stephen in New Orleans while he pastors Changing A Generation outside of Atlanta.

Yet they put on the show that all is well and they are the happy ministry couple.

And being from New Orleans, I can tell you.  It is the goal of EVERY ministry in the Greater New Orleans area to be JUST LIKE a certain 'undisclosed' ministry couple whose headquarters was relocated to Georgia back in 2005.  This obsession and envy-if you will-stems back decades ago when this man first became pastor of this popular church in N.O. in the 70s.  I was all of 9 years old and I remember my dad specifically telling me how much this church was taking all of the members from my uncles' churches.  I also remember a scandal (that NO ONE can find ANY shred of data on, btw) that in the 70s or the 80s, the pastor was allegedly shot by his first lady in the buttocks because he had been cheating on her....allegedly with another man!

Today, you can't find any record of that incident.  No arrest report.  No hospital records.  Is it true?  I don't know.  I wouldn't be surprised if it was.

It is how things go in the religious world of becoming a first lady.

I write this to wake up my sisters.

Listen, Ladies....

Just because you were raised a certain way does NOT mean you have to live out the remainder of your days fulfilling the plans of OTHERS for YOUR life.  GOD HAS A PLAN FOR YOUR LIFE!

And please understand.  It may include a husband.  Or it may NOT.

Either way.  God had YOU in mind when HE created YOU.

You remember going to school, and having done homework, only to find out you did the WRONG HOMEWORK ASSIGNMENT???????

You were MAD, weren't you?

All that work, all that time, all that intelligence expended....and for what?

To finish a work, or start a work, or DO work...and realize that that was NOT what you were supposed to be doing!

And many times, the teacher didn't EVEN give you credit for doing the wrong assignment!

God is like that teacher.

He is not going to give you 'credit' for doing a 'good' thing.  No matter HOW hard you worked.  No matter HOW faithful you were.  NO matter HOW pure in heart you were.  No matter WHO gets saved, who or claims salvation and deliverance, at your church.  No matter HOW many spiritual children you believed you 'birthed.'

When you stand before God, He is going to say HE DON"T KNOW YOU!


I can look back at when I almost became a first lady.  It seemed like such a great idea, at the time.  I was SO psyched!  I mean, I get to work side by side with the man of God, someone who I believed was honest and sincere about the work of God, who I believed really wanted to see souls saved and delivered.  For the first time in my life, a majority of the people LIKED me, were concerned abut me.  I got help for my kids and I (which was great, b/c I was a single mother up to that point).

All of a sudden, I was undergoing makeovers.  I was told that a first lady-to-be was to dress this way, wear tons of makeup, do the hats thing, wear spikes and 'tear the house down' every Sunday.  It was not AT ALL what I thought it would be, being in the 'inner circle,' being up close and personal with the pastor.

Who I thought was a man of God turned out to be on the DL.  I was HORRIFIED.

But then after I found out what I knew, it was expected of me to keep silent, to still go along with the wedding.  To still undergo the 'grooming process' of becoming a first lady.  MUCH like what Esther went through to prepare to be the queen.  As a matter of fact, that passage of scripture was used (as well as the scripture about Hannah and Samuel and Peninah) OUT OF CONTEXT to try and give me biblical reference and support for this grooming process for the great cover-up.  That was supposed to give me reason to believe that I was still the 'first lady' and should marry a gay man, a diseased gay man, to boot.

But no matter how much they tried to buy me off, no matter how much they tried to groom me, make me over, like some church Barbie doll, no matter how much scripture they threw at me, no matter how many false prophetesses and prophets tried to prophelie to me that this was all the plan of God, no matter how much even the co pastor (who was the pastor's mother, btw) tried to counsel me and tell me that 'we as women go through a lot in marriage...this is just something, your burden, that you have to bear...,' the SPIRIT OF GOD IN ME would not allow me to go through with it.  So I called it off.

The plan of God for YOUR life is NOT to cover for your wicked husband.  Yes, that's what I called him....WICKED.  Men of God don't beat their wives and kids into submission.  Men of God don't have sex with children or other men.  Men of God don't go to hookers or are strung out on drugs-prescription or illegal.  Men of God don't steal from or fleece the sheep....even if its under the guise that he is just trying to take care of his family.  T.D. Jakes gets to me, b/c he often 'testifies' about how he had humble ministry beginnings in the hills of West Virginia.  How he couldn't pay his bills and how his family struggled.  So he 'loaded up the truck and he head for Beverly...'  no, I mean Dallas.

And we all know how the story goes from there.

Now Jakes makes SURE that he nor his family will EVER struggle again.  HOW?  By making sure you will continue to buy his books, go see his sorry movies, and frequent his conferences....ALL that keep you as victims, victims that NEED HIS ministry to be 'loosed' or set free.

Let me tell you something, Ladies.

NO matter what the reason is WHY you choose to go along with the foolishness, GOD KNOWS.  I implore you to get it together and GET OUT.  And STAY OUT of the churchanity thing.  Because women who have been raised in that, and have left, are more prone to go back to what they know or what they are familiar with.

You do NOT have to be a first lady to be in the plan of God.  God NEVER ordained that mess in the first place!

The ONLY first lady was EVE.

I pray you hear what is being said to you...

God Bless You!
