Oh My Dearly Beloved Child, You are being taken advantage of and you are aware of that deep down inside. I have seen you bailing out of trouble, someone you love, time after time. You now hardly have enough money … Continue reading
Brethren, if a man is overtaken in any trespass, you who are spiritual restore such a one in a spirit of gentleness, considering yourself lest you also be tempted. Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.
Rejoice with those who rejoice, and weep with those who weep.
I find it very hard to ask for prayer. As an retired ordained womens’ minister, and also a counselor, I am usually the one doing the prayer and counseling of others. However, and I am sure this will come as no shock to most of you, I too find myself in need of prayer and counseling from time to time.
God tells us we are to bear one another’s burdens when we are asked.
What we are not to do is give the Christian who has been brave enough, and humble enough, to ask for help an egotistical “ I am perfect and you obviously are not,” reply.
A person told me once that he had gotten to the point where he felt badly about asking for prayer. He said one woman said pointedly to Him, “The Holy Spirit is your counselor!” Then another man said to Him, “Take you burdens to the Lord, son!”
We are at a time in the body of Christ when we make other Christians feel like they are out of step with God when they ask us for prayer one to one!
Saying things like the ones above just pour added guilt on a man or woman of God when asking, out of desperation, for help.
God spoke to me once about using scripture as a weapon. He said, “Don’t do that again because I know your heart, you are trying to use my Word to put that person down!”
Jesus was patient and kind with “sinners.” Yes, we can see if a person is out of Gods will, often by the way they are living. The last thing we want to do is be so rude in telling them what God says about it, in a hateful way, that the person doesn’t lovingly trust us to guide them back to Christ.
God told me to encourage people, that are out of Gods will. That way we can loving lead them back to righteousness by our love expressing the unconditional love of Christ.
When I was backslidden there was a semi-retired minister of God who I worked with. He asked me if I was living with my boyfriend at the time. I said, “Yes.” He said “ Cathie, I love you in the Lord but that’s called fornication and you folks need to get married.” He then left it alone.
Every time he would see me he would say something like, “Baby girl, God loves you!” It started wearing on my conscience because of his love and patience with me. Eventually we got married and he was the pastor that married us. Had he said, “You are a sinner living like the devil and Gods going to send you to hell,” I would have avoided him like the plague.
My point in all of this is simply this, we need to approach folks with love and kindness, meet their needs and not act like demons from hell when approached by folks.
We cannot be mean and ugly to people and expect them to see God in us. The world is full of mean, angry people that are full of judgment. We need to be merciful and lovingly help those who are hurting.

I prayed about this. I wondered whether to share this or not. I slept on it, I believe God wants me to share it. I am entering deeper and some strong demons have been unleashed on me this week. I notice many of you have experienced the same.
Yesterday evening I went to check my FB account and a woman had left me a strange reply to my latest “Thus Sayeth Yeshua.”
First of all I am pretty sure most of my friends here know that style of Holy Spirit uttering. The majority of my friends are people who minister in churches or my different online ways.
Because of that they understand that God will often give me a message during one of my prayer and praise sessions.
These messages are from the Father for me and my friends. I start it on my own, Thus Sayeth Yeshua, and then I am simply a scribe for Him, as I write down what he tells me.
I had a strange feeling come over me as I got a recent friend request. I am careful and only took on the person because we had a mutual friend.
To make a long story short I had not dealt with a demonic presence like her in years.
She totally shredded me. Some of the things she said were that I am not saved, I am religious, I am sanctimonious , according to her. It went on in a psychotic rage. I knew it was a demon working through her. I was reading it all to Chuck as it was late and we were in bed. She seemed to be having an alcoholic or drug fueled breakdown. It was painful to read.
Her FB page looks contrived. I did a lot of research and she supports some far left people on Twitter. She’s a leftist herself and I think she masquerades as a Christian to argue with Christians.
I blocked her but at least one friend from here has her on their FB friends list too. That’s why I took her because it said that on her friend request list. I am warning that person you are hosting a demon on your friends list!!
It was if it Satan was using her mouth to try and hurt me. Even knowing who was behind it, her cruel words hurt me so badly that I stayed up praying and trying to let it go until 2:30 this morning.
There are ravenous wolves in the camp. Please use the Spirit of discernment to weed them out. I have her name if anything similar has happened to any of you Message me. I will give you her name.
I ask for your prayers. I know God is surrounding me with angels and, though it painful, no weapon formed against me will prosper.

If you’ve been following me for very long you probably know that I went through a period of God renewing my mind.
I had been through so much earlier on in my life, that I was experiencing a lot of what I would call paranoid thinking. I had read the book Battlefield of the Mind by Joyce Meyer. I had come to the conclusion that my mind needed to be renewed. You probably know the Scripture in Romans 12:2 says “Be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind.”
I can remember the exact day I was sitting in front of my computer and out of the blue Satan put a thought in my mind. I begin to think on that thought and the more I thought about it, the more I begin to get this whole scenario going on in my mind about what I thought was going on in the situation. The more I thought about it the more my imagination went wild.
Suddenly, God spoke to my mind, “Cathie none of this that you are thinking is true. You think it’s true because it happened to you in another situation. Cathie, Satan is having a heyday with your mind.”
God begin to teach me that the thoughts we think expand. In other words if we are worried about something and we dwell on that, before you know it our thoughts are completely out of control. Not to mention that demons are attracted to worry thoughts and when we worry every demon in hell shows up to try to destroy our mind.
God begin to teach me to control my thoughts. When worry thoughts began to bombard my mind, I began to say to myself STOP. Then immediately I would force my mind to go somewhere else. I would turn on a move, I would play a game or I would read a book. Two thoughts cannot exist in our minds at the same time. It’s up to us to take control of our minds.
We may have spent a whole lot of time worrying about things. So we’re going to have to take time to renew our minds. Worry is a choice. We can just as easily choose not to worry.
We need to pray for God to help us renew our minds. God will meet us right where we are and help us to renew our minds. Once we’ve been doing it for a while we begin to feel overwhelming peace in the midst of problems, simply by not getting into worry about them.
I am convinced that every single occasion to sin in starts in our mind. For instance I noticed that when I’m trying to lose weight I might start thinking about a wonderful hot fudge sundae. I begin to see it in my mind, I imagine the creaminess of the ice cream and that wonderful chocolatey taste of the hot fudge. If I don’t stop that thought, it will eventually lead to me eating a hot fudge sundae.
If we do not let God teach us how to control our minds, even we Christians can get in all kinds of trouble. Trusting God is the antidote to worry, a spirit of imaginations and of fear that these things in our mind cause us to have. In Matthew 6:25 Jesus commands us not to worry.
If we have spent years letting our minds control us it may take a while, but with constant practice we can renew our minds.
There is a peace that God gives that passes all understanding but we will never find that peace until we make the choice to let God renew our minds.

Brothers and Sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead.
Forgetting what is behind, simply means forgetting the past and straining towards what is ahead simply means I go forward to what God has for me to do. The life God has planned for us has nothing to do with our past.
I recently got a little depressed. Because I know God has completely healed me of depression I begin to pray about it and asked God for knowledge and wisdom to see what was going on.
God began to teach me something that I now would like to teach you.
Do you have people, possibly family, who remembers all the ugliness of your past and still like to torture you over it. They like to use it against you and often try to remind others of it to get them to think less of you too. Sometimes they do it really covertly. Perhaps in a room full of people they like to say how proud they are of you because you no longer do this, that or the other. You cringe. You really didn’t want those particular people to know about your past. If you did you would have mentioned it yourself. Yes, you are blessed that God set you free but that is the past and you want to leave it there because people begin to then associate what they know about your past, with you, and often NOT what God is doing now through you.
It’s especially upsetting when these family members are unsaved and still have all kinds of things going on in their lives that God doesn’t approve of.
I have an interesting testimony in that I was saved and then backslid terribly before I finally totally committed to the Lord almost 20 years ago.
Recently I came to the knowledge that a person in my family has almost single handedly destroyed my relationship with just about everyone in my family of origin. Now this person has not spoken to me in over 17 years. The person has no idea what my life is like, the peaceful life I spend with the Lord, and the fact that I counsel and teach others to also find peace in God, is not even known by this person. I am not exactly sure what I did to make this person despise me, I am not even sure the person knows. The very fact that they can still hurt me with these things can only mean one thing. They are operating under the influence of a demonic spirit. I don’t think they realize that, but thats what it is.
This Winter someone else in my family starting spending time with this man and the next thing you know I began to feel under attack. I was being attacked in my emotions and frankly in my physical health.
It took a while before I realized I was under an attack. Studying this the Lord brought me step by step to what He wanted to show me.
First of all when we go through things in our live’s that are things that open doors to demonic oppression we create situations that allow Satan to be present. When we completely come away from these things and totally commit our lives to God we need to also go through a time a repentance and restoration. What I didn’t realize completely is that there are some people from our pasts that we cannot let back into our lives until they are also totally committed to Christ. Unfortunately these people are often family.
Some people do not want to ever except the fact that a born again friend or family member has changed. To do so would mess up the whole story of their life that they have used to garner self-pity regarding their own lives. People will say, “But you said this that or the other! I thought this person did this, that or the other” They are not willing or wanting to have Christ in their own life. You changing proves it can be done and they don’t want to surrender. They are still in bondage to the sin in their life and they are not ready, maybe they will never be, to get rid of it.
My depression was coming from this person reminding me of things that God says in the Word He has totally forgotten. This person was saying things about me that are not true. I finally realized, as hurtful as it is and as much as I love the person, there is no longer room in my life for someone who finds joy in hurting me.
The past, and most of the people we were involved with there, needs to be just that PAST.
We cannot allow relationship with people who are determined to hate us. It doesn’t matter who they are. Any person who is condescending to us or constantly brings up the past is doing the devils work and needs to go.
Who does God say we are? Thats what matters. Any person with the Spirit of God in them will realize that what this person says is no longer true. What do we need to have fellowship with the darkness for anyway? LET THEM GO.
Pray for the soul-tie with that person to be broken. Pray for God’s cleansing LIGHT to be poured over the part of your body that is physically hurting over the mental anguish this person has caused and then LET THEM GO.
If you are feeling out of sorts, depressed and hopeless, examine your life. Who from your past is still in it? Anything we once had in common with the unsaved is a demon. Friendship with that person, or people who still befriend that person, is not what God wants for us. Why would a true friend, a true Christian, want to associate with someone who puts you down? These people are two-faced. They will keep you around to pray for them or lift them up when they hit rock bottom, which they constantly do.
Watch closely over who you have let in your life. These people are often the cause of your bad feelings. You don’t need them, and the demonic activity they bring with them. Satan uses your kind heart against you. These people need to be left to their own devices. Only when they are truly at the bottom will they come to Christ.

This is not as easy as it seems. How much do you depend on someone else’s help? How much do you depend on your bank account or your savings? Imagine if everyone of these things was gone overnight? Now this is where the rubber meets the road. When people die unexpectedly,or become ill and are no longer there for you, and it’s just you and God what do you do?
In the natural we start to worry. We think one negative thought and then they snowball and then the next thing we know we are in full panic mode. I know because I have been there. Even as a Christian who professes to depend on God we live in these suits of flesh and the spirit is willing to trust in God but the flesh is weak.
When you first read this who came to your mind first? Did you say, “That won’t happen to me. No matter what happens I can depend on “so and so” helping me out. I will be Okay!”
But what if the worst happens. I spoke to a younger couple in the last year who depended heavily on his father for help. They were living in a home he owned. They were driving a car he gave them and if they were late on a bill they didn’t worry much because good old dad would bail them out.
On his way home from work one day a lady in another car ran a light and his dad was killed instantly. After that they saw a side of dad’s wife, his step mother, that they never saw coming. She now gave them a thirty day notice and told them they would need to move because she wanted/needed to sell the home they were living in. That was a plot twist they never saw coming and they had to face being without a back up system for the first time ever.
The good news is that drove them to God. But in the meantime, with no money saved, they had moments of panic.
The only way to make it through panic and worry is to learn to live strictly in the moment with God. Ground yourself by telling your mind STOP. Then be present with what you can do at the moment. Get your mind off of the problem by doing something else. Read a book, clean something or organize your closet. Get so involved in the moment you are in that you have no time to panic. Then, without panic thoughts, your mind becomes clear and God inspired ideas will come into your mind.
Anyone we put our trust in, besides God, can be gone in the blink of an eye. I urge you to become self-sufficient. Sooner or later you will have to do it anyway.
Then, LEARN TO BE IN THE MOMENT. Thinking about the what-ifs drive us to anxiety attacks. You don’t need to be anywhere except in the moment you are in. Depend on God and yourself ONLY.

I am not usually a complainer. I have found out the hard way that complaining does no good and it actually is a lack of faith. Even as I write this I know that it will work out and that God has this and that it will be okay.
The thing is I am not perfect. You are not perfect either and as long as we wear these suits of flesh we will be subject to having days when we miss it, we miss the mark.
I was so looking forward to today for the longest time. Why you ask? Today was to be the very last student loan payment I had to make. I have had them automatically taken out of my account and today was to be the last day of a payment that would have been a car payment for most people. Instead we drive a 17 year old car, it looks okay and is in good condition and we are blessed to have it.
I woke up at 2:30 AM and was excited to check my account to make sure that the one last payment was gone and I would have the full amount of my direct deposit. Note to self, do not check you bank account at 2:30 AM when customer service everywhere is closed. So sure enough instead of the amount of my last payment, the department of education took out a whole lot more. I was in shock. I had no idea what was going on. The very next thought I had was, “ Why God? Can’t just one thing go right in my life?”
I slept little as I waited for Customer Service at the Department Of Education to open. I kept telling myself that God has this. I need to sleep and get my rest. But since I couldn’t seem to find a rational reason for what was happening I had a hard time doing that.
Finally I get through and I got a guy who must have been on his first day on the job today. I had him on speaker phone and both my husband and I were in shock. I could not get him to understand what had happened. He said, “Would you like to set up payments?” I said, several times, “I am calling because today was the last day of making payments and you not only took my payment but 3 times my payment.” He just couldn’t understand and I asked for a supervisor. By now my husband and I could not believe that the Dept. of Education, of all places, had people working there who couldn’t understand my problem. I also realized now that it was a Satanic attack. I couldn’t explain it any other way. No one could be that confused.
Finally I get the supervisor who tells me that I have to summit a paper to have the payments stopped and that he can do this for me. I told him that I was told they would be stopped automatically when the loan was paid off and he informed me that I was wrong. He also gave me the bad news that it would be 45 days before I could get the amount over and above my payment removed and refunded. To cheer me up he told me he would send me a letter stating my account to be paid in full. No reason for why this happened but he says it happens often. Great!
I am learning to live one day at a time. Anytime I make plans for the future I often have them not come through and I often have to start over in another direction anyway.
God tells us to live one day at a time like the Israelites who God would only give manna to for one day at a time. God knew that if they had plenty they would not put him first. I would like to think I would never, at this point in time, NOT put God first. But God knows us better then we know ourselves.
I had plans for a real turkey dinner this year with all the trimmings and a Christmas tree because I had to sell mine when everything went to heck in a hand basket financially because of my husbands 3 month hospital stay and all the bills that went with it. Now, it will be slim pickings but I thank Him that at least we have a roof over our head and others do not.
One more thing….We have to be so careful with the words that come out of our mouths. My husband and I pray together daily and each time we say the following, “No weapon formed against us will prosper!” They don’t prosper but they do happen. Today for example, it isn’t prospering but it is going to be hard for the next couple of months.
I said to my husband today, “We need to change our decree. We need to pray that we have no weapons formed against us at all. He agreed.
So I wrote this for a couple of reasons. So many times because I don’t complain people think I live in this wonderful bubble. It’s not true. Most of the time it’s just the opposite. Satan throws darts at me daily. I have learned, as hard as it is, that I must trust in God. Everything will work out. It always does. Today would have been an easy day for me to say, “That’s it, I cannot take anymore, God!” I made the CHOICE to keep on being faithful to Him. He is all I have and nothing bad comes from His hands.
Secondly, we MUST WATCH OUR PRAYERS! We might be using words that are actually cursing our situation and not helping it.
I have learned that what you say is what you get. From now on I will accept no weapon thrown against us! I will watch my words.
You have to be careful and precise with your prayers. For instance don’t just pray for a Christian mate but be specific with God. Write down 5 things your Christian mate needs to have for you to be happy with them. You don’t want just a Christian mate. You want one that prays with you, that knows the Word of God, that puts God first and you second. Then get specific with the physical attributes.
We must be so careful with our words. I do not want weapons formed against us to not prosper, I just don’t want weapons thrown at us from Satan at all.
In His Unconditional Love,
Our prayers MUST line up with the Word of God. For instance, If one of the Ten Commandments is “Thou shall not commit adultery,” and you are praying for a man or woman of God to leave their spouse and marry you, your thinking is wrong and God will not give you someone else’s spouse.
If our prayers line up with the Word of God then we have to continue to have faith that God will answer those prayers. Nothing can stop them. I literally pray God’s Word over the desires of my heart because I know God will honor his Word when the time is right.
Sometimes people get mad at God for not giving them something that they prayed for that doesn’t now,or never will,line up with God’s will.
God, like you and I, wants the best for his kids. His best for us is not the devil worshipping unbeliever no matter how good looking we think they are.
Don’t get mad at God for not giving you something that will destroy you in the end!
In His Unconditional Love,
Last night I was feeling fine and got ready for bed. I was tired and looking forward to restful sleep.
As some of you know I have Lupus, IBD and a broken vertebrae with two badly compressed discs. Most days I would rather stay in bed but my husband is now 75% blind and needs my help. I am forced to get up. Perhaps that’s a good thing.
I would never make it without Christ! Never..
Just as I was putting my feet into bed a gut wrenching pain hit my body. Out of nowhere my sciatica was causing the worst pain of my life. I couldn’t understand where this had come from. I hadn’t lifted anything or turned my body suddenly. I was literally crying with pain.
It was then I realized it was an attack from Satan.
As I cried out for God to help me, and prayed and praised in the spirit, the Lord began to download into my spirit a word about the current situation in the World, and especially the USA.
Perhaps the pain was God’s way to still me and get my attention because this morning it’s almost gone.
The Lord said to me, “Daughter Satan’s Army is advancing quickly. The lies are from the pits of hell and it’s becoming harder for a lot of midstream Democrats to stay true to a party who manipulates and uses dirty tricks to obtain their objective of One World Government.
I have used the Kavanaugh situation for several reasons. Kavanaugh was born and raised in privilege and up until now has not experienced the full force of evil coming against him. Now he is awake. Now he sees the dirty tricks for what they are. The anger he expressed was righteous anger. The kind of anger my son had when he went into the temple and said, “You have turned my father’s house into a den of thieves.” Kavanaugh knows now that Satan is working through them and is fully awake.
This is a warning to be aware of your surroundings at all times. People are angry and cannot handle the truth of what is being unleashed on the world. They are not close to me and most don’t want to be as they prefer the works of the flesh. Without a belief in me they are following their base natures. Without belief they are empowered to do what ever comes to their minds.
You are seeing and hearing things being done to children you would never have believed people capable of doing. Satan always attacks the seed of man as it was when Pharaoh gave the command to kill all the Hebrew firstborn. Protect your children with prayer. Teach them to pray. Their angels surround them.
I warn you that you must stay fasting, as often as possible, and praying because prayer and the Word are your greatest weapons against Satan’s Army of evil people. This is not the time to be complacent. Sweet words tickle the ears but the truth of the situation must be shared.
Kavanaugh is the first of many prominent people who are going to have their eyes open to the evil you are fighting against. They will finally see the truth that has been hidden to them because of their lives of wealth and privilege. If you think there will be peace in the world you are mistaken. It will only get worse and when it feels as if you cannot take anymore you will look up and see me coming in the clouds to take you home.
When you stay true to Me you walk in My supernatural favor. I will be moving many of you to different towns, neighborhoods and even countries. You have been assigned a specific place and even specific people are assigned to you. Your bright light will put out the darkness in many peoples lives. Stay plugged into my power. I will see that you have supernatural provision for all I have for you to do in my behalf. Stay humble and kind. I will do miracles in the lives on my people for the very reason that the unsaved will see these miracles and know you have Me working in your lives.
I am putting Christian men and women together to work powerfully in the Kingdom. People who do not belong in my children’s lives will leave them. Let them go because I will replace them with true believers. What do the Children of light have to do with the children of Darkness?
Look at all things happening through the eyes of the kingdom. When you do that it all makes more sense to you and you will not worry. I am in complete control!”
In His Unconditional Love,
Sometimes there is a pay-off for constant self-pity, playing the victim, etc. The pay-off is attention. Another pay-off is using these things as an excuse for not achieving goals.
At first the attention is given by people who feel sorry for the person…..but ten plus years down the road people start to avoid people who play the victim.
It’s not that some don’t have reasons for their victim mentality. Years of devastation, betrayal, rejection and loss have occurred.
God wants to heal the years the locust have eaten away. Like my favorite song says, “He’s a way-maker, miracle worker, promise keeper, light in the darkness..”
Only His supernatural healing power will restore you!
…24The threshing floors will be full of grain, and the vats will overflow with new wine and oil. 25I will repay you for the years that the swarming locusts have eaten— the young locust, the destroying locust, and the devouring locust My great army that I sent against you. 26You will have plenty to eat, until you are satisfied. You will praise the name of the LORD your God, who has worked wonders for you. My people will never again be put to shame.…
In His Unconditional Love,
