It is Time to Hit the Floor

boy praying on floor

At a church service……several churches were all assembled  

for Convention. The church building was filled…. then 

A wonderful thing happened…. the Praise Ministers ushered in the 

presence of (God) Yahweh, the God who redeems. In an instant I hit 

the floor on my knees….my spirit within said these words, ” I have 

missed You so much! ” Take note sometimes we as God’s (Yahweh’s) 

people get so caught up in doing so much for God. We neglect to spend 

that vital time in His presence seeking His face! The Psalmist 

David said in chapter 16:11 “You will show to me the path of life; 

In Your presence is fullness of joy. At Your right hand are pleasures 

forevermore. “Yes, wonderful life changing things happen when you and 

I hit the floor. Let us take a closer look at the purpose of the floor 

in Numbers 15:20 ” You shall offer up a cake of the first of your ground 

meal as a heave offering: a heave offering of the threshing floor, so 

shall you offer it up.” In the Bible days floor then was a stone or clay 

platform used for threshing grain or part of a house on which the residents 

walked. Question is…Have you and I made a floor in our homes specifically 

for Abba Father? Listen to these instructions given to Ruth by her mother 

in law Naomi in Ruth 3:2-4 (2) “Now Boaz, whose young women you were with, 

Is he not our relative ? In fact, he is winnowing barley tonight at the 

threshing floor. (3) ” Therefore, wash yourself and anoint yourself, put on 

your best garment and go down to the threshing floor; but do not make your 

self-known to the man, until he has finished eating and drinking. (4) ” Then 

it shall be when he lies down, that you shall notice the place where he lies, 

and you shall go in, uncover his feet, and lie down; and he will tell you 

what you should do. ” Listen to Ruth’s reply to Naomi her mother-in-law (5) 

And she said to her ” All that you say to me I will do. ” Pause for a moment 

right here…. think about this…. Hitting the floor in that place where you 

have chosen to spend time with Abba Father….Now ask yourself (I will do the 

same) …. When Abba Father shows up…. Are you willing to say to Him and be 

obedient to Him as Ruth was to Naomi? This bears repeating verse (5) ” All 

that you say to me I will do.” For Abba Father will give to you specific 

instructions giving to you His words to speak to His people. Yet how many  

times do we attempt to alter what He has spoken? How many times are we 

disobedient to Him in not doing all He has called us to do? Let us read what 

Ruth following instructions in verse (7) “And after Boaz had eaten and drunk, 

and his heart was cheerful, he went to lie down at the end of the heap of 

grain; and she came softly, uncovered his feet, and lay down. ” Do you know 

on the floor at midnight things begin to happen? It is time to hit the floor! 

Verse (8) “Now it happened at midnight that the man was startled, and turned 

himself, and there, a woman was laying at his feet. ” Sometimes you may have 

to stay on the floor all night before the LORD until the morning to get a 

breakthrough! Are you willing? Read verse (13) “Stay this night, and in the 

morning it shall be that if he will perform the duty of a close relative for 

you- good; let him do it. But if he does not want to perform the duty for you, 

as the LORD lives! Lie down until the morning. “Abba Father will not only 

cover you when you hit the floor, He will also hide you verse (14) “So she 

lay at his feet until morning, and she arose before one could recognize another!” 

Verse (15) ‘ Also he said: Bring the shawl that is on thee and hold it “And 

when she held it, he measured six ephahs of barley, and laid it on her. Then 

She went into the city. “The time has come for you and me to discipline ourselves 

to sit still and wait to see the manifestation of the breakthroughs in our lives. 

Naomi says to Ruth in verse (18) “Then she said, sit still, my daughter, until 

you know how the matter will turn out, for the man will not rest until he has 

concluded the matter this day.” 

I admonish you……that not only is it time to hit the floor, whether it is 

walking, kneeling, or laying prostrate before Him……it is time to hit the  

floor. For truly as Yahweh’s (God’s) people, we have become too caught up in 

the cares of this world, we have become too busy and too tired to hit the floor, 

and to seek His face. Too exhausted to tarry all night before Him! The reality 

is we must check in….. hit the floor to hear directly from the throne room of 

Yahweh (God) to make sure we are truly following His instructions……pause 

to think about this…. even though we may be sincere in the way we are doing 

things…. get this! We could be sincerely wrong. The danger is if we are 

walking the floor in disobedience we run the risk of hearing Jesus say to you 

and to me from Matthew 25:42:45 (42) ‘ For I was hungry, and you gave me no  

food; I was thirsty, and you gave me no drink;” (43) “I was a stranger and you 

did not take me in, naked and you did not clothe me, sick and in prison and 

you did not visit me.” (44) ” Then they also will answer Him, saying,” Lord, 

when did we see You hungry or thirsty or a stranger, naked, or sick or in 

prison, and did not minister to You? ” (45) ” Then He will answer them, saying, 

” Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of 

these you did not do it to me. ” Pause for a for a few moments to read this 

poem the pen wrote….it is entitled A BOAZ BLESSING! 

Ruth came quietly…. she uncovered his feet 

And lay down next to his feet…at midnight 

He awakened and found her there. 

She had a special request of him 

Cover me with your covering is all she wanted. 

Yes, a virtuous woman was Ruth….Boaz being 

Much obliged allowed her to stay at his feet 

Until dawn…. Within that day Boaz 

Redeemed not only the land for her, but he 

Also took her hand in marriage…. blessing 

Ruth also with bountiful measures of rich barley. 

In one day, Ruth’s whole life changed from poverty 

To wealth and prosperity…. She received 

A Boaz Blessing! 

It is time for each of us to hit the floor asking our Heavenly Father…. 

How do you want this to be done? Asking Him to teach us His way like David, 

who cried out to Abba Father in Psalm 27:11 ” Teach me Your way, Oh LORD. ” 

Then we must allow His Holy Spirit to teach us! I dare you to hit the floor 

to seek the face of Yahweh, the God who redeems then watch as your whole life 

changes…. Experience Yahweh (God) usher you into another dimension and like 

Ruth, you will receive a Boaz blessing! She received bountiful measures of 

rich barley…. Hitting the floor will change your life forever! You will never 

be the same! Dare to hit the floor in your home and watch as Abba Father  

transforms your entire household! Dare to hit the floor in the church building 

where you worship…then watch through the work of the Holy Spirit souls being 

delivered and set free through the Resurrection power of Jesus Christ! It is 

time to hit the floor so that at the praise gathering lives would be transformed 

and souls would be saved for the kingdom…. Be there! He awaits you this 

day! It is time to hit the floor! 

It is Time to Grow Up

several bunch of grapes

The telephone rang and as I picked up the receiver my mother in law’s voice rang out, “Your daddy wants to talk to you!” His voice echoed, “Margaret, I’m going away, and I want to you to go to the bank and bring me back one thousand dollars in one-dollar bills.” I awakened abruptly and was a bit puzzled, the dream seemed so real. Just then the Word spoke from the Epistle of Ephesians 4:11-12 (11)” And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers;” (12)” For the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ:”
Right now, where you are you maybe encountering much turmoil and experiencing heartaches and pain; do you find yourself being filled with anger and all too often overcome by frustration in your own household. Is it also in your workplace and in the Church? While you are thinking about these questions the Word is speaking and the answer is in it. (13)” Till we all come in the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.” But wait just a minute though, that word just hit me like a thunder bolt. Yes, the dream is much clearer now my father-in-law was letting me know he was making his exit and had given me instructions to grow into full maturity. I hear it, can you hear it, it is time to grow up and come into the maturity in Christ.
Well, my father-in-law has since passed (I miss him greatly) and I have found it to be true, I must grow up. Humbly I knelt in prayer and asked Abba Father to forgive, cleanse me within and bring me into the full maturity of Christ. The next three verses were written on the table of my heart (14)”that we henceforth be no more children, tossed to and fro, and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the sleight of men, and cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;” (15)”But speaking the truth in love, may grow up into him in all things, which is the head, even Christ;” (16)”From whom the whole body fitly joined together and compacted by that which every joint supplieth, according to the effectual working in the measure of every part, maketh increase of the body unto the edifying of itself in love.”
I hear it like the ringing of the telephone; it’s time to grow up! I will never forget those words, “Margaret, I’m going away, and I want you to go to the bank and bring me back one thousand dollars in one-dollar bills.” One thousand means full maturity, one means order or in time. Revelation came to me that maturity is a process and there are no short cuts it must be step by step and in order; for each step will bring you closer to full maturity. I hear it again and it is worth repeating, it’s time to grow up even as you face turmoil, experience heartaches and excruciating pain. The challenges in your home, on your job and yes, in the Church your maturity in Christ will empower you to be victorious over all because you made the decision to grow up!
Much Love to you and continue to stay the course.

The Hidden Treasure

volcano behind a city hidden in fog

Walking through the streets of the settlement of Sea Grape, Grand Bahama, Bahamas, I saw an unusual sight! There it stood, a slender tree which had grown up outside of the walls of the church and it had surpassed even the roof extending into the skies laden with bright yellow flowers on its branches but no one in the entire church could see it.  I awakened it was all a dream which left me puzzled! The Word spoke up from Isaiah 53 beginning from (1)” Who has believed our report? And to whom has the arm of the LORD been revealed?” (2)”For He shall grow up before Him as a tender plant. And as a root out of dry ground.  He has no form or comeliness; and when we see Him, there is no beauty that we should desire Him.” (3)” He is despised and rejected by men, a man of sorrows and acquainted with grief.  And we hid, as it were our faces from Him, He was despised, and we did not esteem Him.” (4)” Surely He has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows; yet we esteemed Him stricken, smitten by God, and afflicted.” (5)” But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed.” Pause right there and calmly think on the passage of scripture you just read! Now right where you are you may be experiencing grief and sorrow not for the things you have done but because of the hidden treasure in you and you are feeling like not going on.  The Word is speaking from 2 Corinthians 4:7-11 (7)” But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us.” (8)” We are hard pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;” (9)” Persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed,” (10)” always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also maybe manifested in our body.” Kindly read on. (11)” For we who live are always delivered to death for Jesus’ sake, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh.” Can you see the hidden treasure in you above the turmoil and the noise of the Nay Sayers especially your very own? As you ponder on your answer listen to the Word as it resounds again from Isaiah 53:5 “But He was wounded for our transgressions, He was bruised for our iniquities; the chastisement for our peace was upon Him, and by His stripes we are healed.’ Listen, can I tell you? Tell me what, you may say? I am so glad you asked and in response I will tell you, Jesus Christ is the KEY to unlocking the hidden treasure within you, to access surrender yourself completely to Him and allow Him to heal your mind, will and emotions! The Word is speaking again, Romans 8:1 “There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus, who do not walk according to the flesh, but according to the Spirit.” You have been forgiven, now forgive yourself! You are fearfully and wonderfully made precious in the sight of Yahweh, the God who has redeemed you and calls you His beloved! He kept you while you were in your mother’s womb and placed within you hidden gifts to propel you to your divine destiny to bring glory and honour to His name! You are destined for greatness and like the slender tree which grew up outside of the walls of the church those gifts within you are the hidden treasure which will be unveiled for the entire world to see that it is Jesus Christ, the Greater One who rules and reigns on the throne of your heart! Give Him thanks and praise for the hidden treasure is being revealed!

The Leprechaun Spirit

woman in white hijab praying

Definition:  According to Collier’s Dictionary.  A mischievous fairy with the appearance of a
little old man.  Also IMP, definition, young or small demon; mischievous spirit.  Mischievous
child.  In English this word once meant young shoot or off spring of a family and later came
to mean mischievous  child or young demon.

Walking into my youngest son’s room to my surprise a stranger, a little boy was holding my
son’s hand about to dash him on to the floor. Immediately these words came out of my mouth,
” What are you doing to my son?” He replied, “I’m just playing with him.” Then the harmless
looking little boy began slamming my son on to the floor like a base ball. I awakened it was
just a dream.  Yet it seemed so real and to my dismay upon checking the room found my son
lying in fetal position in the middle of the floor.  Reminding me of another vision. Walking in the
downtown area I heard someone calling out my name no one could be seen.  Kept on walking
but the person was persistent saying these words, “Margaret, we went to school together.” This
time standing still and looking down, there he stood, a cute little boy; in fact there were several
of them.  The tiniest one said, “I am a singing superstar.” Naturally, I just love little children and
thought, isn’t he just so adorable and without even listening to what he was saying. I just reached
down lifted him up into my arms and started walking. He was getting very heavy and seemed
mechanical. Something was not right, his arms remained stretched out like a robot.  These words
resounded, “You are lifting up a dwarf!” Carrying  him a little further before putting him gently as if
he was an innocent child. Awakened rather puzzled……Could these little dwarf spirits be the
Leprechaun spirit? Could this be more than an Irish folklore? Is it possible that the Leprechaun
can really be a small mischievous spirit destructively working in our lives without realizing how
dangerous he really is? The word is speaking from the book of Isaiah 42:18-20 (18)”Hear, ye
deaf; and look, ye blind, that ye may see.”  (19)”Who is blind, but my servant? or deaf, as My
messenger that I sent?  Who is blind as he that is perfect, and blind as the LORD’S servant? 
(20)”Seeing many things, but thou observest not; opening the ears, but he hearth not.”

In your walk with Yahweh, the God who has redeemed you. Who or what are allowing to come
into your life illegally? What about familiarity and holding on to secret passions and desires? Are
you and I really listening to Abba Father’s voice? Take note in both dreams the dwarf spirit kept
on appearing as an innocent child. Yet what came from their lips were all lies. I had allowed my
love for children to over ride the truth and ignored the warnings. If it had not been for Yahweh’s
intervention the results could have been fatal! Take inventory of your life (me too) see if the little
mischievous spirit, son of a wicked spirit; the Leprechaun could be operating in your life! Shut
down his operation by taking your place seated in heavenly places in Christ Jesus fully armored
and under Abba Father’s Psalm 91 Covering Wings of protection to hear, see, and expose the

Leprechaun spirit!

Soaring Above the Storm

body of water

The storm was approaching and headed for the island where she lived but who could have imagined the loss of lives and the devastation it would bring. The many sleepless nights of walking the floors and praying. Fasting and seeking her Abba Father’s face but nothing could prepare her for this storm. Two a.m., one morning while she sat praying, she stopped for two men had appeared on her front porch. It seemed as if they had come to mark her home which reminded her of when God had sent two angels to destroy Sodom and Gomorrah in the Book of Genesis chapter 19. This was an open vision before her very eyes. Within, she knew something was about to take place. The approaching storm was now growing stronger. All the preparation was made but the bread that was needed, she was not able to do it, everything seemed scattered. This was indictive of her experience in the secret place earlier that money where an unseen hand laid her out on the floor stretched out like a dead woman. She heard an unknown language along with the interpretation, “Beneath the sea!” She tried once again to mix the bread and as her hand was mixing the ingredients with the flour. Her cell phone rang and on the receiving end was the Radio Announcer from the Station with a request for her over the air waves for God to spare the Island. That was the phone call which initiated the answer and brought clarity to her earlier encounter. She felt something lift off her and she began to run all over the house. Leaping and praising God for turning the storm although it was only a little turn, but it would save the islands of Abaco and Grand Bahama. Beneath the Sea is where the Hurricane Dorian projected. As horrific as it was, she heard these words, “I will not let the waters come to your house.” But things got so bad. A call came in that, the waters were walking up to her neighbourhood and the weather was deteriorating. Being less than a mile from the beach and for the first time in thirty-six years. Her husband said they needed to leave to seek higher ground, night was fast approaching, and the worst of the storm was to come. They all left with one consent. 

Meanwhile a flashlight was accidentally left shining upright in her bedroom. The words resonated as they left, I will not allow the waters to reach your home. The path was treacherous, and they met the way partially blocked by the rising waters which were already inland. They barely made it to the other destination; seventy-five percent of the island was under water. Many lives were lost, and the islands were left desolate, but God was calling upon His children to soar above the storm. During the aftermath when her family returned home. The entire neighbourhood was untouched by the threatening waters which came so close but was not allowed to overtake. While examining her home, everything was intact and the search which was left on was still shining. This exemplified the faithfulness of God, who always honours His Word? But her heart ached for all the people who perished and every survivor who lost everything! Her Abba Father was Divinely intervening and touched the hearts of people all around the world, who came to the rescue and with everything needed. 

The message was clearer to her, ride above the storm. She understood that there would be more storms, but it was important to remain focused, disciplined and in consistent prayer with a sharp vision. Staying in step with the Holy Spirit to ride above every storm meant resting in God and standing on His Word. She believed God and now trusted Him to reveal His plan for her Life.

The Lamb and The Beast

belief bible book business

On the western side of the island there were big black beast roaming
through the streets.  They had an appearance like that of lions, and their
legs were very muscular.  All of the people ran into hiding from these
terrible looking beast.  An urgent cry rang out from the people, they
said, “Get out of the streets, for the beasts are there.” Yet, I was
not afraid, and was walking among these beasts.  One of the beast
stood directly on his hind feet in front of a dwelling house – He was
as tall as the house making it impossible for anyone to come out and
no one could go in.  There was one particular beast, he was so terrible
so much so, an angel had him on a leash.  I walked close by this beast
and he could not harm me.  I awakened – it was a dream which seemed
all so real leaving me a bit troubled. At that very moment, the Word
resounded from the book of Revelation 19:19-21, (19)“And I saw the
beast, the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to
make war against Him who sat on the horse and against His army.”
(20)”Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet
who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who
received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image,
these were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone.”
(21)”And the rest were killed with the sword which proceeded from
the mouth of Him who sat on the horse.  And all the birds were filled
with their flesh.” The Word continued speaking going into Revelation 20
leaving me absolutely speechless, (1)”The I saw an angel coming down
out of heaven, having the key to the bottomless pit and a great chain
in his hand.” (2)”He laid hold of the dragon, that serpent of old, who
is the Devil and Satan, and bound him for a thousand years;” (3)”and
he cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal on
him, so that he should deceive the nations no more till the thousand
years were finished.  But after these things he must be released for a
little while.” Could it be, that you and I are now living in the time of Satan
being released for a short time? The Word continued speaking, (4)”And
I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to
them.  Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their
witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the
beast or his image, and had not  received his mark on their foreheads
or on their hands.  And they lived and reigned with Christ for a 
thousand years.” (5)”But the rest of the dead did not live again until
the thousand years were finished.  This is the first resurrection.” (6)”
Blessed and holy is he who has part in the first resurrection.  Over
such the second death has no power, but they shall be priests of God
and of Christ, and shall reign with Him a thousand years.” Take
careful note of what is happening here in the Bahamas and all across the
globe.  People are being deceived – Could it be, that everything happening
be an indicator of the finale battle between the Lamb? Could it be, we are
now living in the time, when Satan is about to be loosed from his prison?
Or has he been loosed already? Read verse (7)”Now when the thousand
years have expired, Satan will be released from his prison” (8)”and will
go out to deceive the nations which are in the four corners of the earth,
Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle, whose number is as
the sand of the sea.” Could it be that you and I are living in the time of the
end? (9)”They went up on the breadth of the earth and surrounded the
camp of the saints and the beloved city.  And fire came down from God
out of heaven and devoured them.” (10)”The devil, who deceived them
was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false
prophet are.  And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.”
Still speechless, the Word continued, (11)”Then I saw a great white throne
and Him who sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled
away.  And there was found no place for them.” (12)”And I  saw the dead,
small and great, standing before God, and books were opened.  And another
book was opened, which is the Book of life.  And the dead were judged
according to their works, by the things which were written in the books.”
(13)”The sea gave up the dead who were in it, and Death and Hades delivered
up the dead who were in them.  And they were judged, each one according
to his works.” (14)”Then Death and Hades were cast into the lake of fire.
This is the second death.” Listen, as the stage is being set for the beast to launch
his attack on the Lamb; will your name (mine too) be found in the Book of Life?
If you answer (mine too) is negative – Read it for yourself what will happen to you
and to me from verse (15)”And anyone not found written in the Book of Life
was cast into the lake of fire.” In my dream, there was a terrible black beast on
a leash held by an angel – Could it be that Satan holds the leash and is the Master
Mind the beast, who is about to make war with the Lamb, who is Jesus Christ?
You and I must get our house (ourselves) in order, so that not only will our names
be found in the Book of Life, but that we will be at the final battle – The Battle of

Armageddon! Be there!

Overcoming Rejection

There I stood all alone holding a container covered by a white cloth while people nearby held their noses, scoffed, and shouted in disgust saying, “We smell something stink!” So appalled were they and they all left, rejection filled my soul. Without knowing what was in my hand I said, “Abba Father, everyone is behaving in a repulsive manner towards what is covered in my hands. Instantly I threw everything into a nearby dumpster. Something mysterious happened as I glanced over there to my utmost surprise. Beautiful jewels of the rarest kind were spilling into the garbage bin without thinking about it. I said, “LORD, this is what I am throwing away because of people’s reactions?” My hands began digging into the garbage until I had retrieved every one of the jewels. I awakened and discovered it was a dream which foretold of the journey Abba Father mandated me to walk which brought the reality of another dream pertaining overcoming rejection. Two men approached and escorted me to an airplane where I was flown to a vast field however, the field was not the focus. They took me to another where there was no path. Not even a fly was there! They said, “this is for you to walk!” I wept uncontrollably for I did not want to go to such a lonely place, no one was there. I awakened, still weeping! Abba Father quieted my heart with the Word from the book of Isaiah chapter 53 verse (4) “Surely he hath born our griefs and carried our sorrows. Yet we did esteem him stricken, smitten od God and afflicted. Verse (5) “But he was wounded for our transgressions, he was bruised for our iniquities: the chastisement of our peace was upon him; and with his stripes we are healed.” Verse (6) “All we like sheep have gone astray, we have turned everyone to his own way; and the LORD hath laid on him the iniquity of us all.” This Word changed my perspective and I willingly surrendered to the Mandate for my life, realizing my life was no longer mine but hidden in Jesus Christ. As I began the walk being empowered with God’s Anointing a trail was being made. There were many sleepless nights of walking the floor and praying until morning. Rejection at times caused me to contemplate turning back but the Word kept me. Truly sweet communion with Abba Father is the secret to overcoming rejection even from your very own. Yes, the Word will keep you on that path of life. I find comfort in the Gospel of John chapter 1 verse (11) “He came unto his own, and his own received him not.” The Gospel according to Luke chapter 6 summed it all up for me in verse (22) “Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man’s sake.” Despite all this comforting assurance I hit many more low points and somehow refused to move forward, while time swiftly passed. The Word is Spirt and Life and ministered to me like fire from the book of Jeremiah chapter 29 verse (11) “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future. Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you.” Yes! I got it! God had given me a Mandate to trailblaze a path although filled with rejection for generations to follow. A lonely path and as I sat in a solitude place enveloped by Abba Father’s presence overcoming rejection was key to fulfilling His Mandate by walking in now faith and obedience. Within I knew in that moment this trailblaze could only be possible by being empowered through Jesus Christ. One of the times of refreshment while spending time alone with Abba Father, I was inspired to author this poem titled: Lonely Path 

I travel a lonely path 

Friends and loved ones 

Have forsaken me. 

For hardly anyone 

Understands the call! 

Up before the dawn 

Of morning 

And sometimes all night 

To listen as He speaks 


The pen to write 

Words of comfort 

And hope 

To share with others. 

For this lonely path 

I have chosen to take 

Just to feel His warm 

Embrace and the 

Tranquility of His presence 

And to hear the comfort 

Of His voice. 

This lonely path 

I willingly take 

To be used as His 

Instrument to bring hope 

And joy to others! 

I am forever grateful 

For the lonely path 

I have taken. 

The Stairway of Visions

architecture contemporary design handrail

Passion for Abba Father’s presence increased daily and throughout the watches of the night. She felt His presence taking up residence, dispelling all the darkness which brought her in harmony with His perfect will. He was faithful to His Word. This young woman felt the yokes being destroyed and burdens lifted from her shoulder like an abundance of rain. She found herself flowing in Abba Father’s River of love. There was never a dull moment, studying His Word, searching, and memorizing the scriptures. One morning she found herself walking in her living room, when suddenly, water from Heaven was raining on her. It was as if God was washing away even the residue of sin from her life, but it was a vision and significantly many more to come.  

Early one morning as this young woman went to the secret place to commune with her Abba Father, the door was ajar readily, she went inside to find only a stairway. A bit disappointed, she placed one foot on the stairs and began the climb. Being short in stature, there were moments where she could feel her little feet but continued in her pursuit of her Abba Father. What she did not realize was that she had climbed where airplanes dared to fly. She stopped and there were only two steps that led straight into the Heavens. However, this young woman did not know how to climb these two steps. One of them was like a ledge and the other upright. Whilst gazing at this unusual sight, a man appeared and handed her a book and she ran with the book.  

Awakened from her sleep this vision seemed so real. Something had changed within her, each time she opened her mouth to speak. The Word of God flowed out and her passion for her Abba Father increased rapidly. A vision unfolded whilst standing praying in her bedroom with her eyes opened. A large muscular white horse made its grand entrance. The white horse knelt beside her; it seemed as if the horse was protecting her from something. Dumbfounded, midway into her prayer this young woman blurted out, “King of Kings and LORD of LORDS!” But the white horse would not leave her side. This was an open vision which left her bewildered and filled with questions, what was the meaning of the white horse and why did he is protecting her? 

The book of Revelation chapter 19 came alive as she hurriedly opened the Bible to find clarification. John, a disciple of Jesus Christ wrote in verse 11, “And I saw heaven opened, and behold a white horse; and he that sat upon him was called Faithful and True, and in righteousness he doth judge and make war”; verse 12, “His eyes were as a flame of fire, and on his head were many crowns; and he had a name written, that no man knew, but himself”; verse 13, “And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood: and his name is called The Word of God.” Visibly shaken by what she had seen, she read verse 14, “And the armies which were in heaven followed him upon white horses, clothed in fine linen, white and clean.” While she pondered on the Word, she could not help but ask her Abba Father, why had the white horse visited her in such a manner in an open vision.  

Her attention was drawn away from this because of a terrible storm which was about to hit the island where she lived. Preparations had to be made and as she tried to bake some bread, she discovered that she did not have enough shortening. Her eldest daughter and her brother’s two youngest children were sent to the neighbor’s house around the bend. Something was wrong, her niece, nephew and daughter’s eyes were glossy. From deep within came these words, “Tell your daughter, never mind, come back!” Albeit the young woman did not adhere and rationalized that it was only a short trip.  

Amid the noise of a large garbage truck, she watched as her daughter drove her van around the curve. She had an unsettling feeling though. Her eldest girl returned but she looked as if she had seen a ghost! A horrific scene which could have ended in tragedy unfolded. The van was left with the engine on with the two little children inside. The little boy took to the driver’s seat and put the van into reverse gear. Her daughter chased the van, which was about to crash into the neighbor’s house on the opposite side of the street. The neighbour, who was watching all this almost went into cardiac arrest. Meanwhile, her eldest daughter was chasing the van, trying desperately to get her little cousin’s attention as she screamed, “Put your foot on the brakes!” It had to have been divine intervention as the little boy managed to press his little feet on the brakes. The van stopped a few inches from crashing into the newly renovated home. The neighbor confirmed the incident and said it would have been too much for her had tragedy unfolded. 

The young woman then realized why she had seen the white horse and why it had behaved in such a protective manner. The white horse was a war horse but could it have been symbolic of how Jesus Christ divinely intervened in intense warfare. While pondering on this, a reminder of yet another vision unfolded of her praying in the front of an upscale community directly in the front of a particular home. Upon closer examination, she was kneeling on a flat but wide rock, praying intensely. What was so unusual was that she would not take herself off the rock and kept on praying. Soon, a man holding his little daughter came to where she was kneeling as she persevered in prayer. Prostitutes, drug addicts, the homeless and hurt people were drawn to the place where she prayed nonstop. A miracle occurred, they all confessed Jesus Christ as their personal Saviour. Each one was delivered and set free. People were healed from every social class. The young woman was so overwhelmed by the reminder of these three significant visions. She did not realize these three of many more visions, were foretelling of what her Abba Father had prepared for her – to impact nations. She humbly bowed her knees in prayer while thinking about the vision of the stairway. 

Walking through The Valley of The Shadow of Death

I was running on a path where the road was being cut off. 
rapidly from me. It seemed, the faster I ran…. The road 
was getting shorter. Then the unthinkable happened. I was 
locked in a box….in there was terrible! With zeal and  
determination, I climbed up out of there into an unknown 
place, where I saw many people walking in through a gate. 
Heading for the gate, I was stopped by a man, but before 
he could say anything to me. A message rang out loud and 
distinctly….” Tell her it is not time for her to come in 
here yet. ” I awakened; it was all a dream. Yet the pain was 
real. The doctors had done all they could do…. I was scheduled 
for another major surgery which I did not want to have…. 
Having been to the theater so many times before. I actually 
cringed at having to go in there again. The comfort of the 
word rang out from Psalm 34:19 ” Many are the afflictions of 
the righteous, but the LORD delivers him out of them all. ”  
At that very moment I was reminded of a trip to the Holy Land. 
life changing it was until the tour guide said to the group, 
” We are now going to ride through the actual place David, the 
Psalmist spoke of in Psalm twenty-three…. The valley of the  
shadow of death.” Looking at this place…. I was completely 
horrified….it looked so dangerous, and the road was very  
narrow…. seemed like there was not enough road for the bus to ride on. 
I spoke up…. STOP the bus, let me off! The thing is I may 
have been the only one who got off the bus. Now reality was setting 
in, walking through the valley of the shadow of death is not a particular 
place…. Itt is what you must walk through, and while 
the doctors may have done all that they can do. Even going as 
far as telling you, you only have extraordinarily little time left here on  
earth. I stopped by to ask you this question. Whose report will 
you believe? I am a living witness; my prognosis was not good. 
Remarkably close relatives were dreaming dreams about me. They said… 
” You do not have much time left. ” I grew worse, yet my faith remained 
strong; and one morning I awakened during the wee hours…. did not 
have enough strength….so much pain! The tugging from within 
was urgent, causing me to crawl to the secret place. I heard a whisper 
” Turned to Psalm 119:17 read it…. immediately my spirit within got 
a hold of that word. ” You shall not die but live to declare the works 
of the Lord. ” I was instructed to put this word on the wall of my 
bedroom and in my bathroom. Two weeks later, I felt myself slipping 
away before the scheduled surgery. I cried to the Lord….said my last 
prayer, was interrupted by these words…” Turn your face to the wall… 
read the word written there. ” Now verbalize it…” You shall not die, 
but live to declare the works of the Lord. ” Instantly, the Word became 
Spirit and the Word became life! Instantly I was healed…. I jumped up 
out of the bed, ran int the bathroom…. there was the Word again…”You 
shall not die but live to declare the works of the Lord. ” Still went 
in for the scheduled surgery…. There the doctors discovered a miraculous  
healing…. his happened to me about twelve years ago. 
Walking through the valley of the shadow of death, you do not have to die.. 
In fact, many times Yahweh (God) will show Himself mightily if you and I 
would only believe! On a tour of the Holy Land, you can tell the bus driver 
to stop the bus and you can get off the bus like I did; but when you are 
walking through the valley of the shadow of death situations….You cannot 
back up, you’ve got to walk through whatever you are faced with. The comfort 
in this is your faith shall make you whole…your faith and obedience will 
bring you out of the valley of the shadow of death, being made whole in 
strength, provision, and blessings to bring glory and honour to HIS name ! 
The WORD is ringing like a bell…. Can you hear it? Read what it says…. 
Psalm 23:4 ” Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, 
I will fear no evil; for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they 
comfort me. ” Jehovah Rohi is the LORD your Shepherd…He is walking with 
you as you walk through what may seem like walking through the valley of the 
shadow of death…. Come on, give Him PRAISE!

The Power of Influence

joyful adult daughter greeting happy surprised senior mother in garden

One night I was feeling extremely tired and wanted to retire for the night but could not find my satin head cloth, so I inadvertently put on my hosiery, on my head instead and without even thinking about it. The next morning, my two daughters saw it and they remarked, Mommy, how is it that you have put the hosiery on your head? I replied, O mommy could not find her scarf, so I used the next best thing. Well, to my distaste behold both of my daughters soon began doing the same thing without even bothering to look for their satin caps. My response to the LORD was, Abba, Father, what have I done? He replied, the power of influence! There is a quote written by William Ross Wallace, “The hand that rocks the cradle is the hand that rules the world,” and yes, this is profoundly true but today I want to candidly speak to you on the Power of Influence. How are you influencing your children and indeed think about this? The Power of Influence affects every aspect of your life. First, let us examine how Rebecca conspired with her youngest son to steal his elder brother’s birthright because she favoured him more and she was able by the Power of Influence to successfully deceive her children’s father in blessing the younger son with his elder son’s birthright under false pretense. The Power of Influence! I was summarizing this story is found in the Book of Genesis chapter twenty-five and verse twenty-eight but as we are on the eve of celebrating Mother’s Day some, how there has been a breach and mothers are not really being celebrated and respected by their children anymore. While there are notable mothers of valor far too many mothers are being in some cases abused and disrespected by their children. This must not be because the truth must be told. The Epistle of Ephesians chapter 6:1-4 KJV sums it all up for you and me. Let us read it together from verse (1) “Children, obey your parents in the Lord: for this is right.”  (2) “Honour thy father and mother; which is the first commandment with promise;” (3) “That it may be well with thee, and thou mayest live long on the earth.”  (4) “And ye fathers, provoke not your children to wrath: but bring them up in the nurture and admonition of the Lord.” 

There are many questions without any answers but we as mothers must take a daily inventory of our own lives and take a closer look at the way we are influencing our children, our husbands, friends, and our Neighbours. Let us examine our attitudes and behavior. Do we exercise self-control? When we become angry, do we resort to calling our children ill names? Are we respectful with our husbands? These are only a few of the many questions which need an answer. Do you realize the way we react influences how our children will respond to challenging situations and the level of respect they will exhibit for others? Sometimes if we choose the effortless way out of a situation and fail to do it the correct way, as a result, our children will become lazy. The way husbands and wives treat each other can influence their children to disrespect or respect their spouses and, in some cases, can cause them to be resentful to their spouses. Truth be known, it is quite challenging in-home life. There is a saying though that, A man’s house is his castle and that speaks volumes of his wife who is the keeper of his castle. Home life is also particularly important and plays an integral part in the stability of children. We must go back to God’s standard for the home. 

Every boy and girl need their father and mother. Mothers cannot be a father to their children and fathers likewise a father cannot be a mother. Mothers, please do not deny your children the privilege of their father. Fathers do not disown your children; this is a terrible thing to do to a child and it will influence them in a negative manner. The truth is only, God, can heal a child who has been denied by their parents. If you have done this to any of your children, please it is never too late while you are still alive to say you are sorry and ask for forgiveness as this helps in the healing process. As we celebrate this Mother’s Day let us include the fathers as they come along, side the mothers. Mothers do not speak any negative words against the fathers, instead, mother, build, him up and decree and declare him to be the father of your children according to Yahweh’s Mandate for his life. When you do this and your children hear you speak so highly of their father, they too would have a correct perspective of him as their father. 

Take note, that one night in which I was feeling so tired and took that shortcut used the uncomplicated way out and put my stockings on my head. I soon regretted it when I saw how my being lazy and failure to persevere in the search for my satin cap. This became a teachable lesson for me and caused me to realize that everything I do my children are watching and because of the influence I have on them. It is important that I influence them in a positive way in all areas of my life. The stocking cap was negative, and it influenced my two daughters so much that each time they were not able to find their satin cap they reached for the stockings to put on their heads. 

As I hasten to conclude this message. How have you and I used the Power of Influence? The Book of Proverbs comes to mind and sums it up so beautifully from chapter 31:30-31. Verse (30) “Favour is deceitful, and beauty is vain: but a woman that feareth the LORD, she shall be praised. Verse (31) “Give her of the fruit of her hands, and let her own works praise her in the gates.”    The Power of Influence! 

Let us Pray: 

Heavenly Father, thank you for Your Word. In the Name of Jesus move by Your Spirit and breathe upon the one who has read this message. I pray for recovery of the family relationship as we celebrate Mother’s Day. Divinely intervene in every home in this nation and across the globe. Father, rebuild the prayer altar in the home. Turn the hearts of husbands and wives to each other and restore their children to a right relationship with their parents. Let this Special Day be one long to be remembered. Give us wisdom, knowledge, and understanding to use the Power of Influence to bring about reconciliation and a loving atmosphere in our homes. In Jesus Name! 

Enjoy your Special Day Mother!
