Prophetic Word- A Call To Ministry

42517307_10160951971230603_274047681175748608_n

Right now God is commissioning and sending out many people who have been on the edge of their own plans and God’s plans.

You see, Jesus walked on this earth and called many. He said “peter, follow me, you’ll be fishers of men”. Peter followed. Many left their homes and careers to pursue what Jesus was doing on this earth.

God is calling many right now. 

I have been talking to a lot of people and prophesying to “move forward”. For many that means quitting their jobs, moving, aligning themselves with where God is calling them. You see Jesus was always on the move on this earth. He never really settled too long in one place because His food was to do the Father’s will. 

There are so many Christians that are holding onto their own lives because they are afraid that the Father God won’t take care of them or provide for them. When Jesus told me to sell everything and follow Him, I was scared, but I followed because nothing else seemed to satisfy my heart.

The other day I got to prophesy over a young lady at the salon. God told me “she is a preacher”. I said “you are a preacher”. She said “I just want to work for myself”, but I felt the Lord say it so strongly…

It was a spirit of unworthiness that had her.

Many of us don’t believe we have what it takes, but it’s not us, it’s Jesus in us enabling and empowering us. 

I have prayed for hundreds of people on this trip, security guards, random strangers, anywhere and everywhere…and I noticed that God has just been calling through me to others “you are called to preach, you are called to be a missionary”.

But the fear of lack prevents many from moving forward.

Just yesterday the Lord finally gave me a huge breakthrough. He showed me that I was feeling unworthy because of past accusations. He showed me how many people accused me when I fundraised for my trips, some people from my past church told me “you don’t go to my church anymore so I won’t support you”, some like my mother said “why should people support you when they are working for their money”, some trolls on my blog even accused me by saying “get a real job”.

You see why I didn’t ever want to fundraise?

I had left everything already to follow Jesus, yet I was being dishonored, rejected and scorned.

By in obedience to the Lord Jesus I continued, casting my cares on Him.

He said to me “you are worthy, what you are doing is the most important work in this earth and in heaven, souls are being saved, people are being freed from fear. You prophesy dreams and work miracles. This is the only work, the Father’s will, that is worth doing”.

I sense many women especially are breaking free from expectations and pursuing what God has called them to do.

This does not mean that you may go to seminary or join an organization for the Holy Spirit is BREAKING structures and institutions so that the REAL work can be done. Institutions have often LIMITED what the SPIRIT wants to do. CHURCHES have LIMITED what the SPIRIT wants to do. FUNDS AND FINANCES HAVE BEEN RESTRICTED AND NOT GIVEN TO THOSE WHO ARE DOING THE REAL WORK OF GOD.

Women have not been able to PREACH at churches because of false ideas about verses in the bible. The reason Paul said that women are not allowed to preach is BECAUSE BACK IN THE DAYS there were WITCHES who were preaching in the church, they were involved in witchcraft…(if I remember right from my earlier research), basically they were not OPERATING OUT OF THE SPIRIT.

Anyways, that’s not the point…the point is that the Spirit lives in all believers, not just men.

Because of many archaic ideas about women preaching, we have not seen the full manifestation of what God wants to do on this earth. 

I am a pastor. I pastor people everywhere I go, I don’t have a title from a church,  God called me Himself….so if men say “women can’t be pastors” their real argument is “they can’t be recognized by people, they should NOT BE SEEN, THEY SHOULD NOT RECEIVE APPLAUSE”, but it’s not men who recognizes or approves of women, but GOD! They are basically saying “I don’t want woman to RECEIVE THE HONOR they are worthy to receive because I (A MAN) want ALL THE GLORY!” 

BUT TO GOD BE THE GLORY ALONE!

I pastor people and no one sees. I pastor people in hostels and on the streets, I listen to people who I don’t expect to give me anything in return. I do it because Jesus is loving through me. I follow Him because I am in love with Jesus.

I don’t do it for the recognition.

And if I ever followed Jesus for the recognition than Jesus definitely burned that out of me because He brought me to the lowly place….a pastor who will sleep in a 10 bed dorm room. A pastor who doesn’t own a phone right now.

Even when the religious spirit tried to block me from preaching, the Spirit sent me to different churches, as a new comer, with no notification (as a visitor, not a guest speaker) He would tell me to pray for people and eventually I’d pray for the pastor. And the Spirit would rain down on that church as I prayed and prophesied over them.

I’m TIRED OF people wanting the glory! It’s JESUS that gets the glory!

God is calling MANY OF YOU TO GIVE UP YOUR LIVES FOR HIM. For the anointing flows in surrender. Let the Spirit live and love through you.

The Making Of A Prophet

 

44156990_10161035845630603_8681826933421375488_n

“But I tell you the truth, no prophet is accepted in his own hometown.”- Luke 4:24

I don’t wish that anyone be called by God to be a prophet, pastor, evangelists. What you see in America is not what being called actually looks like, most people don’t tell you what the process looks like to be called. 

The biggest struggle I’ve had to go through is being rejected, by everyone. The biggest lesson I learned in being rejected is that “I am worthy, I am enough”.

I’m going to tell you what it actually looks like to be called. Growing up in a conservative church, people didn’t really believe me when I told them that “God told me”. I had a ear for God early on, but didn’t know it was being spirit filled.

I listened and will follow Him where He was leading. I got booted out essentially by the conservatives. Later on I tried to pursue success in the world and failed miserably as God closed all the doors. He said “You are a pastor to the lost sheep”. 

Now He also called me after my failed attempt to be successful in the world to “sell everything and follow Him”. I proceeded to returned my leased car, my apartment that  I was already two months behind in rent, and I basically did everything that a model citizen wouldn’t do.

After years of being “independent” I moved back home with my mom. I felt like I was losing everything I built my life on. I lost my career, my laptop crashed, I didn’t have a sim card for 3 years.

The accusations got louder and louder- “what are you doing with your life? You are almost 30. Stop wasting your life. Get a real job”.

Well, God told me very specifically to rest and to follow His voice. So there I was praying for people on buses and on the streets. I didn’t know that my life would essentially look like that NOW but I am praying for so many more people on a daily basis.

You see, I looked like I was living an irresponsible life but I was setting people free from fear and bondage, I was healing backaches and speaking identity into orphaned hearted people. But that didn’t seem to matter to my mom. 

But in those 2 years God restored more of our relationship.

So I lost everything but I gained the Lord. Jesus.

All my vices suddenly disappeared as the Lord started healing everything wounded in me. I stopped wanting to drink whereas in my early twenties I often found myself drowning my pain in alcohol or going out with people.

Now people offer me alcohol and I just don’t want it. It’s not because of self-discipline but because God has took away any desire so that I can be sober minded.

It says to be vigilant for the enemy is always prowling to attack, this is true. I let my spiritual guard down when I am drunk. But now I am drunk with the SPIRIT of GOD. And it is INCREDIBLE.

In 2014 I also broke up with my ex and I stopped dating. Suddenly I didn’t need attention from men anymore. THAT WOUND HEALED. The Lord did it. You see even if a nice looking guy shows up I can read his mind and his spirit!

So what did the process look like? LOTS of tears and rejection. Being rejected by your own relatives, friends, being judged about your life. Traveling to places and sometimes not knowing what I would eat or if I had money to eat, being laughed at when I get in front of a stranger in front of a big crowd of people, being ridiculed. 

YES, people say “no” all the time when I ask to pray for them. Yes, people laugh at me.

When I tell people I’m a prophet, some laugh. Some people who don’t believe in Jesus laugh and ridicule me. Some people think I’m saying it to be boastful and they attack me.

But you know what I say “I don’t wish it upon anyone because the cost has been great”.

Now more than ever what I pray over people is this “you are enough in Christ Jesus, there is now no condemnation for those that are in Christ Jesus. You are righteous by grace and not by works”. This SETS PEOPLE FREE because they are no longer under judgement, but FREEDOM. 

I had to go through all that to know what IDENTITY MEANS.

The crazy thing is that the farther I went from Los Angeles, the more I was actually honored as a prophet and as a human being. Above is a picture of my brother in Christ. I have received such encouragement from people I have met here, in Japan and in Korea. Though I was once dishonored and rejected, God is restoring honor to me.

Awaken Your Heart

images (1)

Prophetic Word- October 20, 2018

Awaken your heart.
It’s time to follow your heart and not hesitate. No more guilt or shame for these are not from God.
No one can tell you what is right or wrong for God put desires and dreams in your heart for a reason. It may look irresponsible and nonsense to others but to God it is God’s dreams, so don’t let others’ judgement cause you to back down.
It is my DREAM- says the Lord.
Not other peoples’ dreams, it’s mine and I planted it in your heart for a reason. Follow and be irresponsible in other peoples’ eyes, let them snare and spit.
It’s not your job to convince others that it is right in your eyes.

Most people have neglected their dreams, pushed down their desires, they think that is obedience to God but God is a dreamer, He plants dreams in our hearts since before birth. He is a visionary God.

Like the pharisees, many neglect their dreams and live under the law, they live for obligations, deadlines, the first of the month, for paying rent, for making others happy, for a bill paid, for a “job well done”, for rules and regulations, structure and schedules….but it is the few that will break out of the box and say “it doesn’t make sense, but I choose to be a dreamer who lives their dreams”.

The truth is you can only be one or the other.

You can only be a settler or a dreamer.
A settler settles for the status quo, for the model citizen, for other peoples’ expectations of who they should be.
A dreamer says I know you don’t agree with me, but I will go ahead anyways because I am worth it. I will break all boxes and all judgement because I am approved of and loved by God. I don’t need your approval, I know you will disapprove of me but even Jesus had enemies and haters.

You can’t be both.

An Unshakeable Identity

images

Most of us only feel secure or happy when life is going right, when our bills are paid, our kids are happy, our friends are supportive, our parents are saying “I’m proud of you”, when we are healthy, when we have ample income.

But this is what the Lord said to me “most Christians don’t know their identity, they don’t know who they are and are easily shaken by circumstances”.

He said this to me when I asked Him why it had to be so hard and why I had to go through these trials of trusting Him in the areas of finance while I am doing His work of delivering people out of bondage.

“I want you to be unshakeable”.

I want you to know who you are in the worst of circumstances, to know that you are a daughter of God, not an orphan, that with God all things are possible and that you are not DEFINED by what is going on around you.

I was asking God about well, black and white Africans. There are many affluent white Africans, they are primarily the ones that sit at nice restaurants in South Africa. I also met black Africans that have complained to me about snobby white Africans.

But you know what the Lord told me? When anyone defines their WORTH by how much money they have, they are already under the spirit of lack. 

Yesterday I got to pray for a woman in the bathroom. I was just asking the Lord to provide for me and there I was giving her most of what I had left. But when I prayed over her, I actually felt the spirit of fear leave me, I suddenly did not fear lack anymore because in giving, I was saying to God “you are more than enough”. 

But as I prayed and prophesied over her, I suddenly spoke identity into her and myself included.

Stand up, rise, you are not defined by anything going on around you, you are defined by the blood of Jesus, paid for by God. You are a son and daughter of God no matter what is happening in your life. 

That is your true and unshakeable identity.

So God is NOT more with you when He gives you a mercedez or a big house. He is not LESS with you when you live on the streets and have no money. 

He is with you wherever you are and He wants us to be unshaken by the circumstances in our lives.

You might think “well, that’s not fair, I’m living for the Lord and I’m advancing His kingdom, but those who have settled and denied you are living the life with their big mansions and big new cars, how is that fair?”

I hear the Lord say “because I am the life, the truth, I am everything you need, you can only find true satisfaction in me….they might have everything in the world, but without me, their hearts are empty and still searching”.

My food is to do the Father’s will.

That is what feeds me, I feed on the spirit of the Lord and I’m satisfied. 

That is spiritual maturity friends. 

You are enough.

You are whole and not lacking, the Lord is your shepherd and you lack nothing. You are righteous through the blood of Jesus and it is paid for by His blood, not your works.

Most of the people I pray for to break off the spirit of lack have stable jobs with weekly income, they have a home, they are supposedly secure but there is a spirit of fear on them…the fear is that they are not enough and that they don’t have enough. They are afraid to move forward, to break out of their rut, to venture forward into the unknown. They are not sure that God will catch them, that they are enough.

So why did He send someone who doesn’t have a “job” but a calling, someone who doesn’t know where the money will come from, who doesn’t know where God will be calling her next, who doesn’t know the specifics of the future but the ONE who holds the future?

Because in all these trials, God has given me authority and stability in My identity in Christ Jesus. My worth isn’t in whether I know what tomorrow holds, where the money will come from, whether my bills are paid, whether I have a phone (because my phone broke a week ago and yet God led me to where I needed to be).

In these trials, I’ve learned this “I am enough in Christ Jesus”. 

So I keep going forward because somehow God has cast out all fears and put a fiery fearlessness in my heart. Because with God all things are possible and I am a daughter of Christ Jesus, beloved, unmovable, gaining all authority with all things under my feet.

I’ve left everything I’ve known to follow a God I know.

 

 

 

When You Struggle To Believe

How is it possible to be praying and prophesying over someone and then moments later, you’re on your bed sobbing to God.

Well that was me a minute ago.

I went from telling someone “it’s not on you to make it happen, God hasn’t forgotten you” to asking God “I feel like you’ve abandoned me” in my journal.

This journey looks like brokenness and tears.

This is my journey. I don’t know what yours look like but as a pastor/prophet some of the hardest moments are in your bedroom.

I’m feeling sick, want to go home but I don’t know where home is, I’m fighting emotions and lies, I’m wondering where the finances will come from, I’m tired, on a never ending jet lag schedule, but yet God still tells me to pray for people.

He says “not by your strength, but by my spirit”.

I want to give up.

I really do, but something in me says “don’t”.

And so I cry and weep, and sob.

I let it all out until I’ve got nothing left.

“That’s exactly where I want you- at the end of yourself”.

It might seem cruel of God, but it’s the beginning of miracles.

But that’s me, real, raw, vulnerable. 

I’ve got nothing left. It’s just you and me Jesus.

 

When You Follow Jesus

d8d136f084773f2c4ab6d8360accbc3c

When you follow Jesus, He will order your steps.

Before I went on the airplane to head to Taiwan, I started having dreams about getting married. In this one dream, I dreamed that I was wearing a wedding dress on the airplane.

On another day, I dreamed that I was getting married and that my mom had already ordered flowers.

SO let me just tell you, I had one dream where God said “get ready, and there were pictures of different guys and I was swiping”….and it has come true, God has led me to meet so many great men of God…I’m actually in total awe because I had a misconception that there were “no more good men around”.

But the truth is there is tons, but you will only meet them when you are following Jesus.

HAHAHA.

Which leads me to many testimonies of this trip.

I posted this on my facebook wall:

TESTIMONY and Prophetic Word for New Life City Church Cape Town 
This morning I felt led to go to church and before I even looked up a church I noticed a sign “New Life City Church” across the street. I said GOD you are making this easy for you. Praise God.

The message was about allowing holy spirit to move in the church and not being hindered by positional hierarchy (allowing church to minister to church), I start laughing.

When the message ended, God started telling me who to pray for so I went over and prayed for them. One girl in particular, I felt like I was giving birth with her, like Elizabeth and Sarah, where our wombs were leaping and I started weeping uncontrollably as I prayed over her- I kept hearing BIRTHING, you are birthing, you are birthing.

Pastor Demitri introduced himself to me, I asked to pray for him and I saw rain, heavy outpouring of rain and birthing, birthing. When I finished he said when I walked in he heard the word “angel”. He knew God had sent me to speak.

There were many testimonies, but that afternoon as I took a nap, I saw Pastor Matt playing piano and singing in anticipation, not knowing what his wife (Caroline) was going to sing next, but singing in anticipation. I saw that I was singing and some others in the church singing. It’s like you are finding power in the spirit now and making space of the spirit to move.

I woke up feeling like WOW. Revival. I’m still getting chills.
YES LORD WE PRAY REVIVAL AND RAIN FOR CAPE TOWN and AFRICA IN JESUS NAME!

I CANNOT MAKE THIS UP.

How good is our God.

______________________________________

Yesterday morning I met a guy named David, as we talked and prayed, I saw that he was a revivalist…then he told me a story of how he had no money as the officials took everything away from him, he had a fever for two months, and the LORD kept him alive. A good samaritan paid for him to go to Kenya and get treatment. THE LORD IS REAL.

Today I offered guavas to two men in the kitchen and I said “God bless you”, and of course they turned out to be Christians. We started sharing testimonies.

This is holy spirit moving.

I have many more stories but that is all for today.

 

 

 

Brave Heart

IMG_2924

I have many feels.

I am a woman of tears.

This season I find myself consecrated to God in pools and floods of tears.

He calls me to walk on water and at times I stare at the water, how deep is it? What would it feel like to fall? What would it feel like to drown?

I have these questions and doubts and my heart can’t comprehend the extent of His love…

I often say yes but there are times when He tells me to pray for someone and I say “God not this time, I can’t”.

And He says “my grace is sufficient for you”.

I know that someone’s miracle may be in my words and prayer. But the fears creep in. It’s a total stranger, it’s a group of people. They can reject me, they have a right to.

That fear sometimes grips my heart and I’m unable to say yes.

Because it’s too quick God! I just prayed for someone in front of Starbucks, you want me to walk up to someone who doesn’t speak any English and try to explain that I want to pray for him?

Yes. Because I love this man.

So I am sending you.

Reckless love, a love that knows no fear. This is what I am discovering about God. He wants His children to have no fear.

I thought I knew anything about love but when I’m confronted with my own fears I realize God is breaking off any measure of fear.

His love is so big He desires for me to love in a big way, without fear.

I am completely wrecked.

What kind of crazy love is this? This love that has no fear of rejection, a love that Is perfect.

A love that says I’ll put my heart out there regardless of how you will respond. God is not afraid of rejection, He will keep knocking until you open the door.

God will love in face of persecution and hate.

I will love even if I face rejection and persecution because this is my purpose. Love.

Come to me says the Lord, I will make your heart brave.

– I am holding a stranger’s baby. You see how open people are to love?
