As I was preparing to write one of my papers for my homework (B.A. Biblical Studies), I had to stop to share my revelation knowledge from reading about Joseph in the Bible. [No, I didn't push my homework to the side. I wrote down what god had told me to share later in case I were to forget].
Oh how I wish I could share all of my papers! But I refuse to do so for plagiarism risks... However, I must share this with you all because it’s strictly Bible and revelation to help grow your faith.
I was assigned to read Genesis 37-41 and to answer questions. I wasn't going to read it because I already know the book. But I decided to do so to refresh my memory. Remember when Joseph was thrown into prison with the other two prisoners (OT)? It reminded me of Jesus going to the cross (NT) with the other two prisoners. (One went to hell and the other asked Jesus for salvation). With Joseph, the butler prisoner was set free and restored to his position while the baker was executed. This part is deep but it came to my mind: the butler had a dream about wine (represents the blood or Jesus) and the baker had bread. Yeast (used to make bread rise) represents "sin." The baker and the foolish guy on the cross died in their sins while the other two received favor.
It is important to read the Old Testament because it’s a parallel of the New. Jesus Christ is concealed in the OT and revealed in the NT. Jesus is the Word! He’s everywhere in scripture! That’s why reading God’s Word brings life to us. "My son, give attention to my words; Incline your ear to my sayings. Do not let them depart from your sight; Keep them in the midst of your heart. For they are life to those who find them And health to all their body." (Proverbs 4: 20-22, New American Standard Bible). His Word brings healing. "He sent out his word and healed them; he rescued them from the grave" (Psalm 107:20, New International Version). It doesn’t matter what passage of scripture. The whole bible is revenant today. "All Scripture is inspired by God and is useful to teach us what is true and to make us realize what is wrong in our lives. It corrects us when we are wrong and teaches us to do what is right. God uses it to prepare and equip his people to do every good work" (2 Timothy 3:16-17, New Living Translation).
I love the Old Testament. My next course I will be taking is actually titled “Old Testament.” :)
I have love for the entire Word of God. I need the whole Bible to understand the gospel message and to grow in my faith. It doesn’t matter your denomination. Every Christian needs the Bible. The whole truth will only set you free, not the half truth!
God’s people in the OT, faced tremendous physical battles. When they chose to be faithful to God, trusting and acting on His Word, they were victorious. Today, we may not all face physical persecutions, but the spiritual battles are just as big. We need to be faithful, fearless and humble to every Word that God tells us.
I want to encourage you to go on a Bible Journey. It’s not too late to start. Read a few chapters a day, and you’ll be done in a year. Just keep a consistent pace and read something each day. Man can’t live on bread alone but on EVERY word of God (Matthew 4:4).

I was driving my husband’s car to school, and after class I noticed that someone had shattered his backseat window.
Everyone in the school ended up in an auditorium and was listening to a guest speaker. It seemed as if there were thousands of students. The speaker ended up standing next to me and she kept on talking about schizophrenia. She was looking at me when she said it. I thought it was interesting that she was doing that because my mother is diagnosed with schizophrenia. I thought that perhaps God had given her foreknowledge about some aspects of my life.
As the students were released from the auditorium, there were hundreds of emo kids chained up together (holding hands seems like) that were blocking us from leaving. We were trapped on both sides, and the emo kids were ready for war. They kept calling us, “evil Christians.”
Suddenly, I opened my mouth and started singing, “I will exalt You, I will exalt You...” then everyone else joined in. The emo kids moved out of our way, and before our song was over, I received revelation knowledge to run.
So I told everyone to run. They all packed into cars and drove off. The emo kids ran after us to attack us but God sent fire to encompass and trap them where they stood so that they couldn’t escape.
I saw the guest speaker acting schizophrenic. She was acting crazy! The leaders of the emo kids were laughing at us because they thought our leader (guest speaker) was crazy. They were laughing and making a mockery out of Christianity. But the woman was actually distracting them while another woman went and rescued those who were hiding in fear. We had the last bunch of people get into boats and buses and drive off.
Moral of the story: Praise confuses the enemy!
The devil doesn’t understand spiritual things because he manifests his evil works in the physical. He doesn’t understand our praise.
When it appeared as if all hope was lost, he assumed we would be trembling in fear for what seemed like a defeat. But instead, we stood on the Word of God. We praised God because His Word is true. He gave us authority. I knew in my heart and spirit that God wouldn’t allow us to be defeated and destroyed. So I was led to lead everyone into worship.
Then suddenly, the chain of demonically influenced people was broken.
I thought about a CSI episode I watched years ago. The show had a big twist. One of the CSI guys actually got kidnapped. The team couldn’t find him. The kidnapper was recording the guy speak badly about his friends. They were offended and confused. But he was really doing mind control. The words he spoke actually were big intelligent terms with definitions that gave clues to his location. Therefore, the team was able to find him and rescue him.
This reminds me of the guest speaker acting like she was schizophrenic (mind control) to tell me to catch on to her rescue plan so that I could be used to help God’s people escape.
We have no need to fear because God’s Word says not to. Our God will do what He said. War is coming. But we don’t wage against flesh and blood. We are to fight this spiritual battle with the Word of God, prayer and praise. (Ephesians 6)
Scriptures that God gave me:
Peter confesses Jesus as the Christ
13 When Jesus came into the region of Caesarea Philippi, He asked His disciples, saying, “Who do men say that I, the Son of Man, am?”
14 So they said, “Some say John the Baptist, some Elijah, and others Jeremiah or one of the prophets.” 15 He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?”
16 Simon Peter answered and said, “You are the Christ, the Son of the living God.”
17 Jesus answered and said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven.
18 And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.
19 And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”
20 Then He commanded His disciples that they should tell no one that He was Jesus the Christ.
Hebrews 11:30 says, “By faith the walls of Jericho fell down after they were encircled for seven days.” (Full Story in Joshua 6–The Destruction of Jericho)
Prayer of Protection: Psalm 91
"I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world." John 16:33
God will never leave His people. Even if it seems like the last minute, God will rescue us.
Trust in the Lord. Do as His Word says!

DREAM: FEB 11, 2018
In my dream, my family was living in a special home that seemed like a mission home or some other type of Christian housing. The owners or house authorities took care of children with problems or without parents. Maybe, there were refugees. I'm not sure.
Well, we ended up kicking us out. They rushed us out and mumbled things to others as we packed up our belongings. My children and I were doing laundry, but we had to take our wet clothes out of the washing machine because they wanted us to hurry up and leave.
Scene 2: A girl and her boyfriend (whom I know in real life), wanted relationship counseling. They seen how successful my marriage was. But once they seen what it took to become successful, they were unwilling to commit to the plan. So they got in their car and left by the time I was ready to give them advice.
Scene 3: My husband was in a room or gymnasium full of guys. He publicly apologized to them all for whatever reason. He openly confessed his wrongdoing. Afterwards, some of the older men were upset and talking about him amongst themselves. Despite the persecution he felt, I informed him that he did the right thing. It's better to tell the truth than to lie or cover it up. God requires that we confess our transgressions so that people will know the truth and that we can be set free from guilt and other consequences.
Scene 4: There was an End-Time scene where a woman was tied up and being set on fire. It didn't look like she could see or feel what was going on. But as I stood-by, I could see everything. So, I would warn her of the harmful things that the torturer was doing to her. Someone came to her rescue and caught the torturer.
True religion is pure. "Pure and genuine religion in the sight of God the Father means caring for orphans and widows in their distress and refusing to let the world corrupt you" James 1:27 NLT.
True religion is not about dressing up for church and eloquent speech. True religion is giving to those that are in need. We're blessed to be a blessing.
Christians ought to be busy stocking up eternal rewards in heaven and not temporal earthly pleasures. When we help those in need, we help Jesus! To our benefit, we will be credited for our Kingdom work on earth in heaven. There's a blessing in giving. But honestly, it's about showing love to those in need because it's a clear indication of God's heart living and penetrating through us. Real love is demonstrated in actions towards others. God did this through Jesus, when He gave Him up to die for us sinners and strangers.
Not everyone will do what it takes to walk with the Lord. Once they know the process, they step back and decide to stay the same. Not everyone is willing to leave their comfort zone. Too many people are worried about what others will say about them. They don't wan't to be judged. They don't want their plans to be replaced with God's. They don't want to forgive and confess their wrongs. They don't understand the discipline, persecution and true worship of those who are committed to following the Lord. Persecution comes with following God. But life without God, is the real torture. God will surely rescue us and show us His salvation. If God is for us, who can be agsint us? What can man or any demonic being doing to us? Who can truly separate us from the love of God? NO ONE!
If you do good works but don't know how to love people with the pure love of God, then your religion is in vain. If you don't forgive in your marriage and relationships, it will fail. If you don't stand by your spouse through thick and thin and forgive, it will fail. If you don't make the Bible the foundation of your faith, you won't be successful in this life nor will you have any heavenly rewards. (1 Corinthians 13)
I'm sure that many people think I'm weird and crazy. I can sense it because I'm spiritually sensitive. Some have even admitted being jealous, intimidated and uncomfortable around me. It's sad because they cast me out and think I'm some Jesus or Bible freak because I'm doing too much and going too hard. It's because they don't study, believe, stand and act on what the Bible says.
Many Christians today aren't that radical for Christ. We aren't going as hard as the early Church. Sadly, many false religions are going hard for what they believe and we aren't. If we were, we wouldn't even be here. We would be in heaven because the Gospel would've been preached to the entire world and the end would've already came…
I want to encourage you to become intimate with Jesus. Walk with your God daily. Do what His Word says by allowing the Holy Spirit to guide and empower you to act on God's Word. Fall in love with Jesus Christ. Come under the shadow of God's Wings. Get to know your heavenly Father. Come out of your comfort zone. Give your whole heart, soul and mind to Him. Don't withhold anything! Commit your whole entire life to God and He will give you real and great success! Hallelujah, Jesus loves you!
