(1974-present) Melania Adams
Melania Adams- was born in 1974 to Willie Mae Wilson
and Donald Ray Adams. She grew up on the south side of
Chicago, Illinois, in a neighborhood called Englewood.
Even at a ripe young age, Melania had a spiritual
connection with the Lord. At the age of five she began to
have, prophetic visions about her life and the things
around her. The Lord truly had something special in store
for this young lady. As she got older her gifts began to
grow, but without spiritual guidance, she had a lack of
understanding as to what was going on with her. As the
years went by, her confusion grew; leaving her vulnerable
to the attack of the enemy. Melania no longer wanted to see
these visions and began to suppress them. As a result,
Melania went through a series of trials such as
molestation, and child abuse.
As she began to approach her adolescent years, more
trials seemed to come her way than ever before. With having
an unsaved mother and an absent father, Melania had enough
of the abuse and decided there was no other choice but for
her to run away. At the young age of thirteen, the streets
were no place for a child as herself, and the harshness of
her situation began to slowly tear away at her psyche. With
nowhere to turn, she found refuge with a local street gang.
They became what she thought was her family. Melania
quickly realized that there were repercussions to joining a
gang, and found herself being abused more than ever.

The years went by and her need for love and support
grew stronger, so she began to look toward older men for
support and affection. This led her deeper into mental and
emotional confusion and she found herself being introduced
to a lifestyle of prostitution and an addiction to crack
cocaine. By the age of sixteen, she found herself pregnant
with her first child; a baby boy. Given her current
lifestyle, she decided that it would be best if he were
raised by someone else and turned him over to the custody
of her grandmother. Melania continued to live on the street
where she carried on a life of gang banging, drug
trafficking, and drug abuse. By the age of 22 years old,
Melania had already given birth to her fourth child, two of
which were in the custody of her grandmother.
Melania began to sink into a deep depression,
giving up on her life completely. She was ready for a
change. She soon would accept Jesus Christ as her Lord and
Savior.
As her relationship with the Lord grew stronger, her
visions returned and he began to use her as a prophetess in
his kingdom. God gave her a new career, a career she could
be proud of. She began to show a lot of promise in the
ministry of Evangelism and Prophetic word. She began to
undergo spiritual training under some of the most
prestigious spiritual leaders in Chicago. Once her training
was complete, she began to travel all over the area
ministering to God’s people in different churches. Melania
now knew that God had a tremendous calling on her life. She
set out to explore her gifts and how she could be used to
further God’s kingdom.

She then began to reflect back on the torments and


strongholds that Satan put in her own life and developed a
strong passion for setting people free from spiritual
captivity. She started asking the Lord on how to set people
free and began to take classes concerning deliverance
ministry. Soon Melania obtained a special gift from the
Lord to cast out demons and spiritual wickedness. It was
not long before God had given Melania everything she needed
to fight the enemy. He made her sword long, and her armor
strong. She was ready for war. She began to deliver people
by the multitudes in the name of the Lord. Satan grew angry
with her and placed attacks on her life like never before,
but it was too late. The Lord had already given her
everything she needed to defeat him and she could not be
moved.
Over time, the Lord increased her gifts and made her
countenance bright. Through many prophetic words, Melania
was told that it was time for her to bless the people with
the ministry given to her by the Lord. Having an overseer
that was in agreement with her mission, She began going out
on the streets and minister sometimes all night. She
developed a church entitled Kingdom Builders for Christ
that she Co-Pastor with her husband, Apostle William
Thomas. With this ministry her goal is to minister to the
outcast , and the broken hearted. This ministry is also for
women that have been broken. {Rich women, poor women it
does not matter to Prophetess Melania, in her eyes,
brokenness is all the same.

INTRODUCTION
Before you read this book I encourage every
reader to understand that this book was totally
inspired by the Holy Spirit. The Calling of a Prophet
is not just a calling, but, also a life’s journey.
These pages are full of true testimony. I believe
that the reader will gain a deeper understanding
of the calling that is upon their lives and others.
This message is not only for the church, but it
is a universal message of healing for the world in
hopes that gaining a glimpse at the trials the Lord
has delivered me out of, will inspire the hearer to
make Jesus Christ their Lord and Savior.
My prayer is that this book is read in
churches, group homes, prisons, Battered Women
Shelters, and wherever else the Lord sees fit.
There are so many people called of God struggling
with past abuse, past hurts and addictions. The
enemy has told them that they’re worthless. I
want to let them know that the Lord loves them
and that he has a purpose and a plan for their
lives.
The Lord has revealed to me that there are
gifted individuals with supernatural callings on
their lives locked up in Mental hospitals. Some
have never been taught the Word of God or knew
and never had relationship with Jesus. When a
person is destined to be used greatly for the Lord,
problems arise to hinder them. Most of our
children are not crazy but gifted and called of the
Lord and they lack understanding. So many kids
in fosters homes have been mishandled and
sexually abused so their self-esteem is very low at
this point. They have been or are still apart of
gangs, sex and violence, God is calling for them,
wanting to use them for his glory and it’s my job to
let them know it doesn’t matter how far they have
gone, the Lord desires to pull them into his family.
This book is also for leaders. It is time to get the
churches in order. My prayer is for deliverance and
healing to go forth in the lives of every one that
read what the Lord has inspired and to also tap
into the spirit of Christ and to get out of the flesh.
THE PROCESS OF COMPLETION
I remember when I first got saved. I
was so anxious. It was me
against the world. I jumped out into
the deep too early. I was a vessel that
wasn’t quite ready. God loves us so much,
He will mold us more than once, and then I
came to understand that the second time
was more painful than the first. Being in
the potter’s hands will cause you to deny
yourself and forsake your ways. The
potter will get you to a place where its
not about you any more.

The first time I was in the potter’s


hands I buckled under the pressure from
the church. I couldn’t go through
anything without crumbling. I lost
friends and family along the way. When I
told them about my new life in Christ,
they wanted nothing to do with me. This
second time around, I will stand up
straight for the potter. When he sends me
I’ll go, and when he tells me to pray,
I’ll pray. When you have been in the
potter’s hands, you will automatically
operate in obedience to him. I’ve learned
that pottery is a very intimate art. The
person doing the pottery has to be very
familiar with the clay. The hands of the
potter are in the clay making and molding
the clay. The clay goes through a process
of being punched and squeezed until it’s
ready for the wheel.

The potter puts the clay on the wheel


and it’s turning around and around. I
remember a time in my life when I felt as
if I was on a pottery wheel. The potter’s
hands have to be in the clay molding and
shaping the clay while the wheel is
turning. My life was in a place were it
seemed that I was going through the same
old stuff over and over again. I always
found myself saying, ”I’ve been here
before”. But what God was doing was
shaping my character and building
integrity in me. When I got off the
wheel, I loved people the way Jesus Christ
wanted me to love.
I started praying saying, “Lord I’m
ready, I won’t buckle when the pressure
comes”. The very next day, there was a
trial waiting for me. The Lord had to
remind me that just because the process of
the wheel is over, does not mean that I am
ready for the weight of the ministry.
After the clay has been taken off the
wheel, its still soft and can’t stand
upright at this point,. still able to
fall. So I began to pray and ask the Lord
for a greater revelation and for strength.
At this point I was beginning to
understand that the weight of a ministry
was very heavy.
When its time to dry the clay, it’s
left alone under the heat of the sun to
dry. The potter puts the clay down and
then walks away. I felt as if God stopped
talking to me, but he was only teaching me
that one day I may have to stand alone.
The clay is hardened, now it can stand,
but the process is still incomplete. The
potter walks over to the clay, picks it
up, and he smiles; then he dresses the
clay with the finest jewels. The potter
is very pleased with his creation. He
lifts the clay up and says, “You’re not
clay anymore, but a vessel ready to be
filled with the gifts and used.” I’ve
learned that the process of completion is
on-going, and that we forever need to be
in the potter’s hands.

THE PROCESS OF
COMPLETION

1. Who is the potter?


2.Why is it so important to allow the
potter to complete the process in your
life.

3.Read Jeremiah 18:1 and explain what the


Lord is saying to you.

4.Name the fruit of the spirit and were is


it found in the Bible.

HEARING AND OBEYING HIS VOICE

As you have known by reading Chapter 1


about my childhood, I was seeing in the
spirit already, but hearing his voice is
totally different. I wasn’t walking with
the Lord yet. When my oldest son was
about eight years old, and my middle son
was three, I needed someone to baby-sit
while I went shopping. I called a close
friend of the family over and he sat with
the kids until we came back. Everything
appeared to be fine when I got back. I was
tired when I returned, but before I went
to sleep, I heard a voice say look in the
bathroom. I got up and noticed the towel
racks was pulled from the walls. I said to
myself those kids! But the voice said
rape. I thought it was all in my mind, so
I laid down went to sleep.
I dreamed that the person I left to
baby-sit my kids tried to rape my oldest
son. My son was pulling on the towel
racks trying to get away. He had my son’s
pants down, and he was trying to have anal
sex with him. In the dream an Angel told
my middle son to run in the bathroom and
scream. I jumped up out of my sleep
frightened about what I dreamed. I woke
the kids up and asked them if any thing
happened while I was at the store, and my
baby told me everything that I had
dreamed. The person who baby-sat did try
to rape my oldest son but wasn’t able to
(thank God) because of the Angel giving
my middle son instructions. It’s very
important to hear God’s voice. I
listened, but I didn’t really hear. (Gen
3:8-14)
Hearing God’s voice should be a normal
everyday occurrence for a Christian.
(Proverbs 20:12) Since I’ve been saved, I
have disobeyed the Lord more than once.
But this incident taught me to walk in
total obedience to Him.

I planned a trip to a conference and


the day I was to go, I heard the Lord say,
“don’t go.” The only thing that was on my
mind was the fact that I paid my money and
I needed to get to this conference for an
impartation. I also felt that I needed a
vacation it was all about what I needed.
That’s the spirit of pride! I went
anyway! I said, “that wasn’t God
speaking, that was the devil.”

The conference lasted for a week, but I


went only one day because I had gotten a
phone call that my uncle was stabbed in
his lung and that he may not make it. I
was not able to get a flight out so I
stayed in my hotel room all week praying.
God knew what was going to happen,
that’s why He told me not to go to the
conference. Hearing and obeying His voice
is a must because you never know whose
life could be on the line. I thank God
for His grace, and my uncle made it out
alive. I never got to go to the
conference but that one night. My place
was on my face interceding (Acts 9:4) God
does not speak to everyone in the same
way, but we have to learn to discern his
voice. (Hebrews 5:4). When you pray,
worship, and read the Word of God, you
will be able to discern His voice more and
more. (1 Peter 4:10)

HEARING AND OBEYING HIS VOICE

JOHN 10:3
3 To him the porter openeth; and the sheep
hear his voice: and he calleth his own
sheep by name, and leadeth them out

1. Why is it so important to hear and


obey.

2.Have you ever disobeyed the Lord and


suffered actions.
3. If yes explain

4. What did the author mean when she said


we should hear his voice every day. And
why is it so important

Walking Alone
There will be times when you walk alone. I used to look
for people to pray with me and couldn’t find anyone. My
spirit was troubled a lot because the Lord was birthing His
anointing and ministry in my life. I learned that when you
have a revelation gift Judas will come. When people came
into my life in the past and betrayed me, I would cry for
days. Then I noticed every time they came to destroy me it
only made me stronger. I got closer to the Lord by crying out
and seeking His face, finding what I was going through in the
word of God.
The lord was teaching me to protect the anointing. I
was using the gift that was given to me by the Lord to bless
his people without asking Him first. It was as if I was buying
friends, not realizing that prophets walk alone in seasons at
a time because we need to hear God’s voice for his people.
Most of our time is spent in the face of God. Prophets live a
Holy life style, and its not to say that we don’t have friends
because we do. In some seasons the Lord will cause us to
walk alone. You can be living in a house full of people and
still feel lonely. That’s when the Lord is drawing you to
Himself. Always protect the anointing and don’t allow people
to deplete you. We are to seek God and ask Him before you
make a move. I had to learn the hard way, and I thank God
for teaching me early.

I remember staying up all


night praying and prophesying. People came and
pulled on the anointing, and when I needed a
friend I couldn’t find one. I felt as if I was dying on
the inside and I didn’t understand the pain. It
wasn’t the kind of pain you go through when
you’re hurt, it was a pain that I had in my belly
longing for the Lord. At this time I needed
someone to talk to, I went to the same people
that I was running to their houses praying for their
families, and the ones that kept me up all night
prophesying and praying for them. But when I
needed prayer or an encouraging word they were
not available.

THE PASSION OF CHRIST


I’ve learned through the years of extreme
warfare, that Satan wants to kill your passion for
the things of God. There’s so many times that he
tried to kill my passion. As you read you will
understand that when your passionate about the
Lord, people will see that passion and desire it. To
know the Lord is to love Him, and when you can
honestly say nothing else matters, I believe that’s
a sign that you’re called to do a work for the Lord.
I want to let you know it’s going to cost you
something to be truly called by God. The
anointing is birth out of pain. How can you tell a
dying world about what He has brought you out of
if you never went through anything? I know Him
to be a Healer, a Deliverer, a Savior, and also a
Father. I didn’t always understand the call, but
now I do. He birthed a love in me for all kinds of
people. Sometimes I take a look back and can’t
believe what He’s brought me through. I know
none of it was for me but others that are stuck in a
place where they can’t seem to get out of. Just
thinking about all those people that they don’t
know about His shed blood or about his undying
love, brings tears to my eyes.

I believe that a true calling demonstrates the


heart of Jesus Christ, which means everything that
He did you can do. Jesus did everything He saw
the Father do, and we should do everything that
the word of God says we can do. We should be
close to the heartbeat of God, and I know this
because, before I knew about Jesus in this natural
realm, in my spirit I knew Him. He was the one
that didn’t allow me to kill myself, and He was
there when my mother’s boyfriend wanted to kill
me. It was Him that didn’t allow my kids to die.
He was also there when I was in the gang, and He
was there with me the whole time they beat me;
He was waiting on me to receive Him. Now I run
after Him. It’s the passion of Christ that won’t
allow me to give up. That same passion that drove
Him to the cross, the same passion that drives me
to look past what I see when I’ve been hurt by
fellow brothers and sisters in Christ.
It rolls off of my back and I forgive them right then,
because I pray for that same passion Jesus had.
The passion to save this dying world. All that was
done to Him, He never once said a word. When
you’re living in a place where no one understands
your passion, and every day they work on breaking
it down, sometimes it’s hard.
When false brethren are all around saying
that they worship the same God, but have no
desire for His love or for the things in the spirit it’s
time to walk away. There are people out there that
wants to go higher and deeper in His glory, with
these people, just being saved isn’t enough. They
want Him in all His wisdom. When I was searching
for the passion, I would long in the pit of my belly
for Him to fill that empty void that was in my spirit.
I wanted to be in that place where Moses
experienced the weight of His glory. I longed for a
touch, my heart cried out to Him. I said, “Lord how
can you love some like me?” Teach me to love
like that. Give me your heart.

When you have been through hell, you have


nothing to lose. There’s a people that God has
hidden and now is the time for them to come forth
and they have nothing to lose. Their hearts will
belong totally to the Lord. They will seek out for
His passion and find it. These people will be
transformed into His image and when you look on
the countenance of them you will see Jesus Christ.

The Lord wants all


of us to get to a place of nakedness. No more
covers. He wants us to be open to who He is. A lot
of us say we love Him, but what will we sacrifice in
order to walk in His passion? You got to be willing
to give up something. He went to the cross, and
its about time that we pick ours up. The reason
these people are going to be used so greatly for
the Lord is because they have been at the very
lowest place in life, and when they find that He’s
real and will take all of the pain away, they will
worship Him in spirit and truth. Psalm 42: 1 “As
the deer pants for water brooks, so pants my soul
for thee, O God my soul thirsts for God, for the
living God.”
THE PASSION OF CHRIST

passion >noun 1 very strong emotion. 2 intense


sexual love. 3 an outburst of very strong emotion.
4 an intense enthusiasm for something. 4 (the
Passion) the suffering and death of Jesus.
–DERIVATIVES passionless >adjective.
–ORIGIN Latin, from pati 'suffer'.

1. What is your passion?

2. Why do the Lord want us to be naked?

ONE TOUCH

I find myself often saying one touch from you


Lord will make everything all right. I have come to
realize that I never get enough touches. I am
head over hills in love with Jesus. When I enter
into His presence, I always want more. He
understands me and I desire to constantly worship
Him. I long and chase after His glory. One touch
is never enough. He is love, and to be consumed
in His love is addictive.
God wants His people everywhere to tap into
a place of longing to know Him. There are so
many of us that think just because we've been
saved for so many years we know Him, when
there’s so much to know. It doesn't matter how
long you've been saved, is your heart in a place of
fellowship with Him? Do you bow before Him in
worship? Do you find yourself reaching for Him
weeping for more of His presence, having His
anointing destroys every yoke in your life?
Whenever He touches you, the old man falls away
and you become more like Him. I encourage every
reader to chase after His presence and be humble
under the weight of His glory. Seek the Lord,
there’s so much to learn about Him and levels to
His undying love.

1. Time of worship

HOW MUCH DO WE LOVE HIM

What can we give back to the Father,


and how much do we really love him? Are
we willing to go through being in prison
or even take the beatings of this world?
We need to ask ourselves will we still
love Him without food or clothing; when
our friends turn their backs on us; or
when we run across false brethren. Will
we leave Him or will we stand?
It’s easy for us to say He first loved
us, and that’s fine. But how much do we
love Him? You have to hunger and thirst
for His righteousness every hour of the
day. When I go to the throne with my
heart beating fast looking up saying,
“Lord I need more. What I have of you is
not enough”, I realize that I need to get
to that place were Apostle Paul was (2 Cor
11:22-33).
In spite of all the things you go
through, it doesn’t matter, I am not
saying that it won’t get hard; you may
even get off focus and want to give up,
but the love of Christ will pull you back
up again. We need to get to a place were
nothing can separate us from His love.
Then the passion will over take us.

I remember tears running down my face


as I called out to Him and said, “I need
thee, I want more, show yourself to me,
touch me, let me smell your sweet scent, I
bow down and kiss your feet, I long to
have you near me Lord, what can I do to
take this hunger away”? I asked the Lord
what would be able to fill this hunger.
He’s so good and powerful. He’s
everything that I need and more. I am
hooked and I won’t let go. He wants us to
get to a place when we wake up in the
morning, and the first words that comes
out of our mouths is Lord what do you have
for me to do. A place where He tells you
what to wear, and who to pray for. That
place of total submission to Him. The
place where your life is no longer your
own, and everything that you are belongs
to Him. It was His grace and love that
brought me out when no one else thought I
was good enough to wipe the mess from
their shoes. He looked down on this
hurting soul and delivered me.

DON’T COMPROMISE THE ANOINTING

It’s so many prophets that compromise


the anointing for self gain. A spirit of
prostitution has been released in our
churches to the point that the sheep are
paying the overseer or guest speakers for
a prophetic word.
My husband and I were invited to
minister at a church that was well known
in Chicago. When we got there, we were
instructed to call a one hundred dollar
line for a prophetic word. When we
refused, the pastor took the microphone,
and told the people that my husband and I
needed to be taught how to get money out
of the people of God. I saw the hurt in
these people, and they needed real
ministry, and a true word from God.
I was instructed by the Lord to bless
the people with a prophetic word and
deliverance ministry. The pastor got very
angry because we were not going to allow
him to prostitute the anointing that is on
our lives. I don’t care if I never get an
offering! That’s not the reason why I
minister. I minister because I love God’s
people, and I want to see them in a
greater relationship with Jesus Christ.

After the pastor started to call the


hundred-dollar line, God gave my husband
and I a word of judgment to speak over
that church. The pastor didn’t receive
the word. About three months later, I was
told that the church was closed down. The
Lord wasn’t going to let His people sit
under a pastor that was all about self
gain any longer (1Peter 5; Titus 1:10-16;
1 Sam 8:3).
We are not to let others use the anointing on our
lives for self gain, we are not to use the
anointing outside of what the Lord has commanded
us to do with it. Such as equipping, edifying the
body of Christ for the work of the ministry (Eph
4:11). The anointing on our lives is for the
purpose of casting out devils, healing the sick,
preaching the gospel, and to recover sight to the
blind (Luke 4:18, 61:1).

The anointing is not for sale!!! (Matt 6:25-34).


As people of God, we are not to worry about MONEY,
because the Lord will supply ALL of our needs
according to His riches in glory. We first have to
seek after God and His righteousness, and then
everything else will be added to us. If you are
using the anointing to gain things, and money, that
means you don’t believe the word of God and you are
at a back-sliding state. You can be up before the
people running a church, or sitting on a church
bench and have your heart so far away from God
because the anointing has been compromised.

DON’T COMPROMISE THE ANOINTING


DEFINITION

Anointing– The gift of the Holy Spirit as an


efficient aid in getting knowledge of the truth
(1 JOHN 2:20). Not that the work of Jesus was
imperfect, but the Spirit helps us to understand
the truth that He taught. And we must glorify
Him in whom the full revelation of God has been
given (JOHN 16:14).
Anointing– To anoint, smear, consecrate, GEN
31: 13 illustrates the idea of anointing
something or someone as an act of consecration.
The basic meaning of the word, however, is simply
to smear an oily or viscous substance on an
object (EXDOS29: 2, ISA 21:5, JER 22:14).

Anointing- Elisha was anointed to a Prophet


(1KINGS 19:16). More typically, kings were
anointed for their office (1SAM 16:12 1 KINGS
1:39). Anointing is a word that is important both
to the old and new testament. Anointing is for a
special office or function. David refused to
harm Saul because God anointed him (1 SAM 24:6).
It is important believers have an anointing from
the Holy One indicates that this anointing
renders them holy, separating them to God. The
passage teaches that the gift of the Holy Spirit
is the all-efficient means of enabling believers
to possess knowledge of the truth.

THERE’S A PRICE TO PAY

In the book of 2 Corinthians, Apostle Paul had


many trials to face. When he chose to follow
Christ, he paid a price. What we fail to realize
is, there’s a price to pay to be anointed and
called of God. Apostle Paul was like you and me.
He once lived on the other side of the fence and
gave sin his all, so don’t you think the enemy know
when you have confessed Christ? You’re going to
give a hundred and ten percent to tear his kingdom
down. Satan is doing his job to put many trials in
the lives of believers. Paul went through much
persecution when the Lord changed his life. He
chased after Christ with all that he had.
When the Lord revealed himself to him,
persecutions came. Your focus must be on being sold
out for Jesus Christ. That’s why it troubles me when
Christians walk around with offense on their
sleeves, always finding something to complain about,
when we have it so good. Stop criticizing people
when you see them being used of the Lord. I am
speaking from the Holy Spirit, because it’s too late
in the game to be so judgmental, when people that
don’t know Jesus and are dying and going to hell.

While some of us sit in our churches


with the spirit of jealousy, someone else
is going fourth in the things of God. Woe
to you! Never once do you take a look and
see the price that person had to pay for
that anointing. In my own life there have
been many rejections, nothing compared to
what the Prophets and Apostles had gone
through in the Bible. I am not giving up
because I asked myself, “Who am I doing
this for”. It’s not about you, or your
mess. It’s time to grow up in the body of
Christ (1COR 13:11). Let’s put away
childish things and tap into the bigger
picture. Instead of being so fault-
finding, let’s come together and take our
cities back from the pits of hell.
There’s enough work for all of us. Our
neighborhoods and children are being
destroyed by this world’s system, and were
sitting back in our churches confessing to
know the Lord, but can’t come together
with the church down the street.

We have to do better if we say we’re


called of God. What that means is all eyes
are on us. The Lord never promised us that it
would be easy; lets take response ability and
over throw Satan by coming together in love
and unity, and get all of the foolishness out
of our churches.

DO YOU LOVE GOD MORE THAN THE PROMISE


1 SAMUEL 1: 19-28

We serve a loving God that answers prayer.


There is a story in the bible about a woman named
Hannah who couldn’t have children. She labored in
prayer, longing for a child. She thought her
desire for a child would never come to pass. Being
a woman of prayer and faith, she prayed to God for
a child, and vowed to give back the child as her
promise. While she was waiting on the prayer to
come to pass, it built her passion and love for God
even the more. When the Lord blessed her, not
being selfish, she knew when she conceived that
first child that she wept. When words could not
explain her pain, she gave that child back to the
Lord. We need to ask ourselves a question, “do we
love God more than the promise”?
We make our petitions known onto the Lord as
if He’s some kind of Santa Claus. With our selfish
nature, after we get what we want, we hold on to
that thing for dear life, never once thinking that
God is greater than any thing we have or could ever
imagine. Sometimes the Lord will bless us with
things to see if He can trust us with another
blessing. What are we willing to give up? Not
that the Lord needs it, because He’s the one that
gave it to us in the first place.
Hannah, a woman that never had a child got
blessed with one and gave it back. How faithful
was that. She loved God and understood sacrifice.
After giving the promise back to the Lord, God
blessed her womb even more, and the promise was
able to go some places she could have never gone.
Abraham was another faithful person that loved God
more than the promise (GEN 22). We are not asked
to do much. But what if you had to make a
sacrifice? Would you do a little thing like giving
when the Lord puts it on your heart? Even your
last? I’ve learned that when God blesses you, and
you give it away, it only makes more room for a
bigger blessing.

I’VE LEARNED

I’ve learned through the years that in


order to come out, you must go through. I’ve
seen so much in my lifetime, some good things,
and some bad. I love and respect the Lord
for both experiences. If it had not been for
the rain, I wouldn’t have sunshine. I praise
the Lord for my pain. I don’t own it any
more, but when I look back it keeps me humble.
Sometimes I find myself crying out for those
that are lost. Just because you’re in the
church, doesn’t mean that you’re free.
I look all around me and the Lord will
show me the pain of the saints. So many
Christians are covering up the fact that
they’re bound. Some are bound to sex but stand
in the pulpit and preach, prophesy, and lay
hands through them the people are healed,
delivered, and set free. The guilt can get
unbearable. They love God and His people but
are addicted to sex. They are too embarrassed
to even get prayer or ask for help, because
the body of Christ is full of critical,
judgmental leaders.
Drug abuse is flowing rampant in the lives
of some of our spiritual leaders, as well as
homosexuality. We are the ones that are
supposed to lead by example. Can those
spiritual leaders that are struggling with sin
find someone to build them up? If they come
to us in confidence, we are to strengthen one
another no matter how great we think the sin
maybe. If spiritual leaders confess their
sins and get delivered, our churches will have
a stronger foundation. And our communities,
and the people in the world will look at the
church and see no differences.

If the saints are at the club and the dope


houses, how are we going to win the world for
Christ? No one will respect a leader that
preaches holiness on Sunday, but all through
the week they’re full of hell. None of us are
without fault, but strive to be. I encourage
the leaders in the body of Christ to get
delivered. Whatever the babes see you do,
they will do also, and the blood of those
souls will be required at your hands.
To the leaders that are not bound to sex,
or drugs, if you’re judging your fellow
brother or sister in Christ, what’s the
difference? It’s critical, judgmental people
like you that’s stopping true deliverance from
going fourth; not only in the lives of
leaders, but those that’s coming off the
street also. They don’t want to come in the
church because of dirty looks. And we say
that we love God; some of us can be so evil
that we need to get saved all over again.

SPIRITUAL SIGHT
In the beginning God breathed the breath
of life into man’s nose and man became a
living soul (GEN 2: 7). What that means is
the spirit of God was in man, and he had
spiritual sight. The fall of man caused
spiritual blindness and allowed man to have
natural sight. (GEN 3:7) Spiritual blindness
affects the truth, the truth to the things of
the spirit, and to whom Jesus Christ really
is. I know how it feels to walk around blind
to the things of spirit, just carnally minded.
I used to always feel that there’s more out
there but I couldn’t see it. I was always
looking for a touch, but I was in a place of
darkness not knowing about the light, the
light of the world (JOHN 9: 1-11). There was
a man blind from birth the Lord spoke to me,
and said, “there will be afflictions in our
lives that we have no control over, but some
afflictions are there that I may get the
glory.”
I used to wonder why I had to go through
so much at such a young age. I thought the
Lord didn’t love me, or did He even exist.
Because it seemed as if He wasn’t there when I
needed Him. That was a lie from the enemy.
The Lord never left me, He was right there all
the time; I just couldn’t see it. We don’t
want to go through, but we have to go through
in order to come out a better person (JOHN 9:
6-7).
This verse in the Bible talked about
Jesus spitting on the dirt and making a piece
of clay. God is full of revelations. In GEN
2:7, man was made from the dust of the earth,
the very thing that man was made of, caused
man to fall (himself). The serpent didn’t
cause the fall, the temptation of man caused
the fall. The Lord is teaching me that
sometimes He will use the thing that brought
fourth blindness, to cause us to see. The fall
of man brought forth a carnal sight.

Jesus spat on what we once were, dust


formed of clay. Just like in the beginning
God’s DNA mixed with dust brought forth life,
Jesus Christ’s DNA mixed with dust brought
forth a spiritual sight, which is what we lost
with the fall. God wrapped Himself up in
flesh, and redid all that He did in the
beginning. God will use the foolish things of
the world to confound the wise.
We want to be used of God, but we first
have to come down out of the clouds and allow
God to deal with our blindness. We walk
around professing to know Jesus, but
spiritually blind to whom He really is. Some
of us go to church all week long and never
once reach out to someone else. Blindly
walking through the church doors, never seeing
that great big world that’s full of pain.
If we had spiritual sight to see who
Christ is, we will begin to look past our
stuff and see the needs of His people. Jesus
Christ is love, and we as spiritual people
must demonstrate that same love (JOHN 9-7).
Jesus put the anointed clay on the blind man’s
eyes, and told him to wash in the pool called
Sent. After he washed, he came back seeing.
Some of us walk around talking about how
anointed we are, and never been sent. When
you have been truly sent by the Lord, He will
confirm the anointing that is on your life.
How can the lost souls hear, except you are
sent (ROMANS 10:15)? When you receive Jesus
into your life, and allow Him to open your
spiritual eyes, everything you thought you
knew goes right out the window. After you
receive your sight, truth always follows (JOHN
9:8). Spiritual blindness effects your
position in the kingdom of God. It’s a fact
that not only was he blind, but he also was
living way beneath his means. When you’re
blind to the truth of Christ, you can’t step
into your inheritance. Allow the DNA of our
Lord and Savior Jesus Christ to live on the
inside of you, which is the Holy Ghost.

GOD IS EXPOSING HIS LEADERS FOR DELIVERANCE


How can we truly call ourselves leaders when we
spend most of our time dealing with damage control?
We get up before the people, preach a good message
and after church we can’t even speak. How did we
get to be untouchable? We are the ones that the
people look to. It’s our job to point them back to
God, but at the same time we must show love. How
can we honestly say that we love the Lord and treat
His people so badly? It’s not possible.
This is the time and season that God is exposing
His leaders in order for us to get truly delivered.
There are too many superstars in the body of
Christ, when we haven’t laid our lives down for no
one. Where do we get off thinking were so great, to
the point we turn our noses down at others? There
are people who are hurt badly by leaders to the
point they say they will never step foot in a
church. We need to come together and pray for
deliverance for our leaders. We are not
supernatural men, we just happen to serve a
supernatural God.
People are dying and going to hell while we sit in
our big churches and argue about who’s going to
sing lead. Shame on the Body of Christ that has a
mind set that the Lord of host owes them something!
God doesn’t owe you anything! Clean up your act
and get it together! I want to let you know its not
about you, its about those that don’t know about a
Risen Savior. You claim to serve Jesus Christ and
are full of pride, I don’t think so. You have let
Satan deceive you. Seek the Lord for deliverance
and do your first works over.

HAS DISOBEDIENCE CAUSED YOUR EYE’S TO WAX DIM

I have noticed a lot of church leaders flow


in the fleshly realm. We as spiritual leaders
need to look in the realm of the spirit. (1SAM1-
1-14). Here’s an example of how spiritual
leaders can harm God’s elect people. The Priest
Eli accused Hannah of being drunk. If he was
looking in the realm of the spirit, he would have
seen that she was a woman troubled in her spirit.
As leaders we have to practice seeing in the
spirit realm, because it’s so easy to damage, and
cause immature saints to run because of church
hurt (1SAM-3).
Here’s another example of how spiritual
leaders need the gift of discernment. When the
little prophet Samuel came to Eli and asked him
if he called him, it took the priest three times
to discern that it was God calling the boy.
There’s so many of us that the Lord has called,
but we don’t have the spiritual discernment to
know it. That’s why it’s very important as
overseers we pray that our discernment is
sharpened. Without discernment it’s easy to
mislead someone. It’s time for the people of God
to appreciate the spiritual gifts that Jesus
Christ left for us (1SAM-3-1).

In that day the word of the Lord was very


rare, but now in our time we have become very
spoiled and unappreciative. The precious Word of
God has been given to us in many different ways
such as, His holy Prophets. Some of us don’t
take heed to the words that’s given, and we look
up and find ourselves in a place in life and we
don’t know how we got there. Warning always goes
out before destruction.

Sometimes we take advantage of spiritual gifts


and of our freedom in Christ. We need to honor the
fact that Jesus Christ died that we may live, and
we also have his Holy Bible, which is the Word of
God. We can hear freely from the Lord, we don’t
need a priest anymore because the veil has been
torn ( SAM3:2).
Eli’s eyes were waxing dim. The worst thing
that can happen to a man or woman of God is they
lose their vision (MARK 3: 22). The scribes did a
lot religious duties, but lacked the spirit of God.
If they had the spirit of God, they would have
known that the Hope of Glory was right in their
faces.

Religious minded people look with the eyes of


the flesh. I’ve seen it happen, a lot of leaders
calling forth witches thinking that they’re
prophets (MATT 7:15). So many pastors allow false
prophets to speak over God’s people, and we wonder
why the church and the world look so much alike;
because of so much falseness (2PETER 2). We need
spiritual insight in a twofold perspective. One is
that we won’t offend the flock, and another is that
we may know good from evil (ACTS 16-16). A girl
followed Paul and Silas around. She was
prophesying and all that she said was true. These
are the men of the Most High God, they come to show
us the way to salvation. That was true, but can we
for once look past what a person is saying out of
their mouth and see their motive.

This girl was possessed with a spirit of


divination. She even followed them to prayer.
What that means is this spirit is active in
the body of Christ. It comes to choke the
anointing, but Paul having the gift of
discernment commanded that the unclean spirit
come out of the girl. It’s time for some of
us to turn around and confront some spirits
that’s been following us around. The Bible
also says that this girl was bringing her
masters much gain by fortune-telling. There’s
so much of that going on in the churches.
It’s beginning to be all about gain, and you
seldom hear about Jesus Christ and His shed
blood. It’s a spirit of prostitution in our
churches to the point that people pay the
leaders for a prophetic word. Leaders are
allowing the people of God along with
themselves to be bewitched.

STOP JUDGING ONE ANOTHER

Noah was an upright man before the Lord because


he obeyed God by preaching, and at the same time
building the ark (Gen 6:9). He shouted it’s going to
rain! I could imagine the people laughing from unbelief,
but in total obedience to God he never stopped. Some
of us are the same way. When the Lord speaks, we
walk in obedience to Him because God has prepared us
for the storm to come. What happens when the storm is
over? When the warfare isn’t as great? When there’s
peace? Where will your mind lead you?
When we as leaders are on an assignment for the
Lord, our focus is just that. We are made to please the
Lord, but when the dry place comes what then? What
happens when we don’t have a preaching engagement?
Or when the ministry is at a stand still, what then?
Some leaders like myself have to do ministry at all
times because that’s all we know. Helping others is my
destiny. When I am not doing that, I feel incomplete.
After the flood was over, Noah planted grapes and got
drunk. How did this happen? He got drunk and he was
uncovered to the point of nakedness (Gen 9:20). We
need not have an idle mind, but at the same time thank
God for the nakedness for being exposed. Because
there’s about to be a great shift taking place in the
world, and as leaders we need to lead by example. The
Lord is exposing our nakedness so that we can get
delivered and tap into the greater anointing. If we’re
not exposed, we will never really know what is secretly
hiding in the inner most parts of our souls.

Yes you can preach, cast out devils, heal the sick
and raise the dead, but still have hidden sin that has
yet to be uncovered. Not only was Noah drunk and
exposed, but also his son saw and looked up on his
nakedness and did nothing to cover him. Not only that,
he went and told the others (Gen 9:22-23). There will
be people that see your nakedness, and instead of
covering you with prayer and fasting,
they will go and spread it to others. But Noah had two
good sons that did not look up on his nakedness, but
they covered him. God will send some to cover your
nakedness and He will deliver all that have a heart of
repentance.

NOTES:
HOW DID I GO FROM POWER TO DEPRESSION

I can remember asking myself questions


like, “how can one moment I prophesy into a
person’s life commanding that cancer dry up,
and the next minute be full of fear and
depression crying telling the Lord that I
don’t want to move in the supernatural gifts
and anointing anymore”? People called me for
prayer and I refused to pray, I closed the
ministry down that was given to me by the Holy
Spirit. How did I get here? I would ask myself
that all the time. I was at a place of giving
up on everything. As I write this, my heart
is overflowing with compassion for leaders
everywhere. The warfare is great, but the
Lord is greater. We need to get back to a
place of just loving on Jesus.
The prophet Elijah went through some
spiritual storms too. One moment by his words
he spoke a drought (1Kings 17), he revived the
widows son moving in such power from God (1
Kings17: 17). Elijah was a prophet that
didn’t play! He was obedient to the Lord and
at the same time, very bold. He didn’t take
any mess when it came to the things of God. I
am also a very obedient prophet. I love the
things of God.

Every day I looked forward to new


spiritual levels. I thought that I would
never find myself sitting at a bar stool
getting drunk because of depression. All the
while I was sitting at the bar stool,
prophetically receiving words for everyone
there, but I couldn’t flow because of
condemnation. I was drunk and no one would
receive anything from me. So I sat and asked
the Lord how did I get here? The prophet
Elijah stood in the faces of four hundred and
fifty false prophets and told them to choose
their god. He asked them how long will they
be caught between two opinions? Some of us
need to ask ourselves that same question (1
King 18:20-21). After asking the question, he
challenged them and their gods. The Lord
caused fire to fall from heaven so that the
people would know there’s only one true living
God (1 Kings 18:22-38). The false prophets
cut themselves put on a show and nothing
happened.
Elijah told the people to grab the false
prophets, and he killed them all (1Kings
18:40). I know for a fact that Satan was very
angry. Now his main goal is to find out
Elijah’s weakness. He’s looking to see if
there are any doors open. Remember, after
every great accomplishment the enemy is coming
with everything he has.
First of all, you’re at a place where you
need to be restored. Elijah out ran a chariot
with supernatural power from on high. The
anointing was resting on his life, so how can
we explain how fear over took him causing him
to run from a woman named Jezebel (chapter
19). After all the miracles, signs, and
wonders, how could this be? How did he get to
a wilderness place of depression that over
took him to the point he prayed that he might
die? Elijah said to the Lord, “take my life.
I am no better than my fathers”.
Some leaders go wrong in the fact that
just because the Lord chose to use us in
supernatural abilities doesn’t mean that were
greater than any one else (1 Kings 19:4).
The Lord sent an angel to minister to the
prophet strength after going into a battle
with the forces of hell. We have to be
restored, or we will crash under the weight of
the calling. After a journey, the prophet
went into a cave (1Kings 19:9). So many times
as leaders we find ourselves wondering into
caves, the darkest dampest places, thinking
we’re the only ones living right, and the only
ones standing in obedience to God. Another
lie fed to us by the enemy, Elijah was
speaking to the Lord about the children of
Israel and how they have disrespected His
loving kindness (1Kings 19:10). We as
leaders sometimes take on the tasks that have
not been set before us. We can’t do the
Lord’s work on our own, because we are human
men with a supernatural God.

depression >noun 1 severe despondency and


dejection, especially when long–lasting and
accompanied by physical symptoms. 2 a long
and severe recession in an economy or market.
3 the action of depressing. 4 a sunken place

1. Explain in the words given to you by


the Lord of why did Elijah run.
HOW DID MY DREAMS GET ME IN TROUBLE.

I‘ve noticed a lot of leaders make


mistakes of sharing their dreams and visions,
It’s a fact that every one isn’t glad about
what the Lord has shown you. Some leaders get
jealous when someone comes to them with a
dream or vision from the Lord. We need to
use wisdom and ask the Lord if it’s okay to
share, and who to share with. When people see
that you have found favor with God, or man,
some will get jealous and despise you.
Remember jealousy does not have an age or a
social standard (GEN 37:3).
Joseph found favor with his father, but
his brother’s were very jealous of him.
Sometime ago I made a big mistake of sharing
the dreams and visions given to me by the Lord
because I was excited about what God was doing
in my life. After sharing the dream with my
pastor, I got put out of a church where I
served as a prophetess. The pastor told me
that I had a vision outside of the vision that
he had set in place, as if the Lord wouldn’t
have given me a vision outside of what I was
doing in the church (Gen 37:5-11).

When Joseph told his dreams, the hearts of


his brothers grew angry because they didn’t
understand that God was giving Joseph a
foreknowing of what was going to happen, and
that his dreams were out of his control but
inspired by God. If I had known years ago
what I know now, I would have used more
wisdom. I didn’t stop sharing my dreams until
I was hurt so badly by the treatment of some
leaders in the body of Christ. I’ve been put
out of churches, lied on, talked about, and
hated for sharing my dreams (Gen 37:27).
Jealousy is a very dangerous spirit. It will
lead to murder; some physical and some
spiritual murder. But spiritual murder is
just as bad. I know that Joseph’s spirit was
broken when his brothers talked about killing
him and when they sold him. There’s so many
broken spirits in our churches. Don’t be a
murderer of someone’s dreams. As leaders, if
someone comes to you about what the Lord is
showing them, it’s your job to pray and teach
them to use wisdom, because their dreams can
get them in trouble if shared with the wrong
people.

HOW DID MY FAITH IN MAN BECOME GREATER THAN
MY FAITH IN GOD

There have been times in my life when God


promised me something, and it wasn’t what
people thought it should have been, So I
compromised and tried to help God out. We all
know, that God doesn’t need our help (Gen 15:
2). God made a covenant with Abram, and
promised him a son. But instead of waiting on
God, he listened to the voice of his wife (Gen
16:2). So many of us lose patience waiting on
the Lord, when it’s in His timing not ours.
Abraham’s wife told him to go and sleep with
her maid. God never confirmed what Sarah had
spoken.
As leaders, it’s very important to wait
for a confirmation from the Lord before
stepping out. I remember the Lord spoke to me
and said, “I am going to make your ministry
great. People all around the globe will come
for deliverance”. When the Lord spoke this to
me, I had a service coming up, and I heard the
Lord say, “the time isn’t now”. I spoke to
some fellow ministers about the word that was
given to me from the Lord. One minister said,
“the date of the service is coming up, don’t
cancel, have the service.” I felt to wait for
an okay from the Lord so that the service will
be blessed. I didn’t wait on God, I stepped
out had the service and no one showed up.
Why do we put our faith in man, when the
Lord has spoken? If Abraham would have waited
on the Lord, he would have known that in God’s
plan his wife was to bare a child (Gen 17:15-
16). We so often step out before time not
knowing there’s a blessing in the wait. We so
often listen to the voices of men and some of
us go astray, we tell God that we have more
faith in man than Him. As leaders, be careful
that in everything you do, hear His voice,
because his sheep know His voice and a
stranger they will not follow.
