So, it’s over, you’ve parted ways, maybe you’ll eventually be friends or maybe enemies. But that’s all up in the air. You were in love, thought it would never end but now you have to face the cold empty bed alone. Cuddle with your pillows and just feel your own breath on your skin. Cooking is not the same, because there’s no one to cook for. You engulf yourself in erotic novels and reality shows to find some way of coping with the hurt. Mama says it will get better, daddy says there’s another fish in the sea. Your friends are overly sympathetic and nothing helps. Tears stain your face every time you pass that familiar place, or reminisce about a special moment shared. You lock yourself in your home beneath the shadows of depression and food, the internet has become your safe haven for now. Life is not worth…

Stay in Gilgal

After reading Joshua 5, God gave me a deeper revelation on that passage last night in prayer. The place in which Joshua circumcised the “wilderness children” was called Gilgal, which means “circle.” Gilgal was first camp that was set up after they crossed over the Jordan river. The significance of the crossing of the Jordan was that the “wilderness children” saw similar to what their ancestors who had died saw at the Red Sea, the miracle of parting waters. So in essence the experience had come full circle for them. Now that they were at Gilgal it was time for them to be in covenant with God so circumcision was in order.


Circumcision is merely cutting off of flesh. The flesh that is cut off does not give life, is dead and adds no value to the body. Many things in our lives are just like that so it must be cut off, whatever and whomever it is. After their circumcision the “wilderness” children stayed at Gilgal to allow time for HEALING and this is the place where many of us are, things have begun be cut off that we thought were good for us and it has HURT, but God has placed in a Spiritual Gilgal so that the healing process can take place. You may feel like you don’t fit in, or you’re not favored as you once were, and it’s true you don’t fit in with the “normal” crowd anymore.


You are set apart for warfare. Notice the “wilderness” children were not circumcised by their parents mainly because their parents were stuck with the Egyptian (bondage) mindset and God did not want the “wilderness” children to be influenced by that mindset, so all of their ancestors died off. God is not allowing you to fit into the mundane traditions of religion and the ‘”church” culture because he does not want you to have that mindset because it will cause you be KILLED in this next series of warfare.


In the passage after the healing had taken place and they were ready for battle the Commander of the Lord’s Army appeared to Joshua. So  be encouraged this is a healing place in your life and once we are all to the place where we need to be, we will be ready for WAR. Selah.

You Can Overcome Homosexuality

Dear Future Overcomer,

Have you ever been to the altar and walked away in defeat? The Pastor prayed and laid on hands, but nothing felt concrete? You sat in your seat kind of embarrassed because all they wanted was a shout. They said, “You’re set free now” all you have to do is walk this thing out.
You get it your car, drive home, and here comes that infamous text saying
“Wassup babe, come over I wanna chill.” But all they wanted was sex.
You try to say no, but no turns to yes, and you find yourself in front of
a bed preparing to undress. You indulge in the evil, play with darkness, and entertain the sin.
You feel just like you felt when you left that altar, defeated and wondering
when will this all end? Truth is it never ends, but you have the power to say no.
You see my friend deliverance is instant, repenting is constant, and overcoming is
what you must proclaim. The day you gave God your yes, He wiped you clean and changed your name. You must go through the process of severing the ties. The ties to the lifestyle, relationships, everything must die.

I know you’re hurting, I know you’re crying, and it’s hard to be alone, but being alone is better than the false hope and impure love that any man has ever shown. I know you’ve tried to make it work, one after another, it always seems like this is the one, but he always finds something “better” and leaves your heart undone. So build some walls, cover some wounds, thinking you’ll be cool, but truth is young man, you’re boxing in poison and it will begin to infect you real soon.

You carry a burden, that nobody loves you and no one understands your hurt. But man I understand because I was you and yeah sometimes it still hurts. See, I was abused, misused, and fell for the okey doke several times. I clubbed, I partied, and slept around thinking I’d be just fine. All I did was dig a deeper pit, and swim in a sea of despair. I forgot about God, didn’t recognize Jesus, and both of them were always there.
Your deliverance is in your mouth, and what you have to confess. Remember that Restoration takes time, Redemption was given at the cross, and Purification is a process. You can make it man, you’ve got to fight. You’re weeping now, confused, it’s painful but I promise you on the other side is a NEW LIFE. God loves you too much to ever let you go, he’s yours, you’re his, but you in your mind, you have to KNOW. It’s ok now, breathe deep, release the pain, and let the past go.
You’re Justified, You are Saved, there nothing else to do. Just be Consistent, Repentant, and God will see you through. You can now look in the mirror and see what I see and what God has destined you to be. You’re an Overcomer man, now Turn your light O.N.

Yours brother in Christ,

The Overcomer


*Just Call Me Justified


Wrote this poem this morning about my experience with pornography and sexual addiction. Be Blessed.


 I am trapped, locked up, incarcerated, and imprisoned.

Not by bars, the warden, guns, or handcuffs.

I’m trapped by sexual addiction and lust.

I watch porn, read nasty books and always take second looks.

I crouch like a lion waiting on a gazelle, hiding behind a façade so nobody can tell.

I wait, I watch, then pounce on my prey, saying this is the last one, but I do it everyday.

Log in, log out, I turn the computer off, but when I’m stressed I go right back

to the normal routine NEVER counting up the cost.

Never counting the steps I’m taking away from God and my reality to escape what I should have given

him in the first place, I’M LOST.

Lost in a fantasy, lost in the temporary, lost and weighted down by burdens that I don’t have to carry.

Stress rises, flesh cries, Spirit says no, but my flesh says, GO.

Go to the familiar, it’s too hard to pray, release the pressure, it will make it go away.

But like a snowball it rolls downhill creating an avalanche that I can’t control or keep still.

Every step, every move, every turn I take, stress, calamity, confusion it awakes.

I’m trapped beneath movies, magazines, mental images, fantasies, and sex.

Not realizing the suicide bomber I’m becoming because I won’t crucify my FLESH.

I can’t  sleep, I can’t  rest, but then I hear the Holy Spirit speak with a fresh breath.

Cast down the imagination, here’s a way of escape, I’m breaking the chains, wiping you clean,

Repent, walk away my son, you are redeemed.

I can hold you, love you, soothe you, relax you, caress you, give you a release and more importantly I can give you peace.

Look to the hills, your help has come, no more guilt, no more shame, the battle is won.

Purity is yours but it’s a step you must take, burn the books, the magazines, and destroy the tapes.

My chains are gone, I’ve got a new song, I will never be bound again.

I used to be a porn addict, trapped without bars, trapped in my mind, thinking I was closing doors to it, but never throwing away the key. Finally I’m FREE.

Not My Will

I was meditating and the Lord began to speak these words to me. Be Blessed.

“But if serving the LORD seems undesirable to you, then choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods your ancestors served beyond the Euphrates, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you are living. But as for me and my household, we will serve the LORD.” Joshua 24:15 (NIV)

“So Jacob said to his household and to all who were with him, “Put away the foreign gods that are among you and purify yourselves and change your garments…” Genesis 35:2

“For all the peoples walk each in the name of its god, but we will walk in the name of the LORD our God forever and ever.” Micah 4:5

While it has been chaotic, confusion, calamity, and difficult for most of us this year, God has used 2011 as the year of testing, trying, purifying, proofing, straightening and correcting. For the past eight (8) months there have been things lost and taken from your hands because God wanted every residue of your past away from you. Relationships have changed, jobs have changed, assignments are different, you have low tolerance for some of the foolish things that once were. Your thirst and hunger for the word had been greater and your sensitivity to the Holy Spirit has been heightened.

Like Abraham, God has sent you to a place that was unfamiliar so that you would trust Him. Like Joseph, He has caused you to be disliked, misunderstood and thrown away by your kinsmen because; He wanted you in a position to bless them. Like Moses, He has caused you to learn from the enemy’s camp, so that you can go back and deliver the people that are oppressed. Like Joshua, He has allowed you to glean from great men so that you would lead others into the land and conquer it. Like Gideon, He has shown you the army of people that will fight with you and defeat the enemy. Like Samuel, He has called you until you have recognized His voice. Like David, He has sent you to the fields to be strengthened for the uphill battle to ascend to the throne He has anointed you for. Like Solomon, He has given you wisdom beyond your years to know and understand His nature. Like Isaiah, you’ve seen Him. Like Jeremiah, He’s put words in your mouth. Like Daniel you’ve made a choice to be His and His only.

You’ve been is seasons of mourning, dancing, killing, rejoicing, planting, uprooting, winning, and losing, but still like Job, nothing has been able to touch your soul. You’ve remained His. God says, “But you are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of him who called you out of darkness into his wonderful light”. 1 Peter 2:9(NIV) and “For whomever THE LORD JEHOVAH loves, he instructs, and draws aside his children with whom he is pleased.” Heb 12:6 (Aramaic Bible)

The last days of this year are crucial to your life, purpose, and ministry. He’s called you to be greater, to submit to His will and His plan for your next assignment. Favor has been extended so that the way will be easy.” lift up your eyes, and see that the fields are white for harvest.” John 4:35d (ESV). He wants to bring His Kingdom forth through you and the choice must be made to be on His side; all the way or nothing. Make a choice, pick a side, a battle is inevitable, but you must be on one side or the other. There are no middle roads, fence sitting, or wavering. You must either be sheep or goat, wheat or tare, on the straight way or the broad path. It’s up to you. His will or yours, but choosing your way will be hard like Jonah’s, deadly like John the Baptist’s, and harsh like Saul’s. It’s up to you. Selah

It’s a Season of Favor

Cain was the 1st son on Earth, 1st Born to Adam, and favored by God and His Mother, but when it came time to give God his BEST he gave him mess. Abel gave God his best, which gave him access to favor, Cain was jealous because Abel was favored above him. Cain became complacent and but Abel was consistent. Cain eliminated Abel but did not inherit, nor was there a transfer of Abel’s favor to him. Even after Cain had hidden Abel’s body,
his favor (blood) still cried out from the ground.

Saul was favored of the Lord, but lost his position due to disobedience, so for 17 years he “worked for free” while David was being prepared to take the position as king. Saul was jealous of David’s Favor, because David never stole Saul’s wife, disrespected his home, slandered him, plotted to kill him, or brought reproach to him, yet Saul’s jealousy of who was “next” drove him mad. Like Cain did not dislike Abel, Saul did not dislike David, Cain and Saul disliked the FAVOR and in spirit had an issue with God.

When leaders in ministry, friends, family, and associates who once liked, were impressed, supported you or got along with you; start to dislike you or become upset when you’ve received a revelatory word from God, it’s not YOU they have the issue with it is God. When people have issues with God, don’t worry because eventually they will like Saul fall on their swords, like Judas hang themselves, or like John the Baptist allow their mouths to get them into a deadly situation. Favor is never fair, if you were once on the receiving end of it and now have lost it.

God’s favor is easily obtained through obedience and faithfulness. In Proverbs 8:32-35 (NKJV) the word says, “Now therefore, listen to me, my children, For blessed are those who keep my ways. Hear instruction and be wise, And do not disdain it. Blessed is the man who listens to me, Watching daily at my gates, Waiting at the posts of my doors. For whoever finds me finds life, And obtains favor from the LORD;”

Brothers and Sisters you should no longer be concerned with those who do not speak well of you, misunderstand, or simply just do not like you, when you are standing on the Lord’s side. James 1:2, says” Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance.” I encourage you to persevere these next 57 days of 2011, because God is ready to favor your walk with Him in 2012.

Letter to the Church of Jesus Christ

Dear Church of Jesus Christ,

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of God that brings salvation to everyone who believes: first to the Jew, then to the Gentile” Romans 1:16

Let’s face reality and realize that America is morally bankrupt, operating under the influence of evil spirits and demonic doctrine. America has given itself over to the rulers of darkness in exchange for acceptance of its lust for power and acceptance in the modern world. But who’s is to blame for this? Surely, we cannot blame President Obama, nor his predecessors. We cannot blame Democrats, Republicans, Tea Party, lobbyists, or our government. The blame lies solely on the CHURCH, that has remained silent, secluded, and having a form of Godliness. The church has slowly compromised on every standard that it once stood on and allowed sin to creep in our midst and covering it up as compassion. Jesus had much compassion for those in sin, but he never compromised with those he ministered to. Even sitting at the dinner tables of sinners, he did not back down from the truth of God’s word. The church has sat back and allowed abortion clinics to rise, legal marijuana, gay marriage, adultery, sexual immorality, and a number of ungodly things to infiltrate the fabric of our society. The church has hidden itself under the bush and all the world can see is a flicker of light to remind them that we still exist. But still they laugh at us, because we argue over doctrine, denomination, what to wear, and foolish things that should not be paid much attention to. We have become separated, bitter, and prideful people, that look down upon the world and sinners once we receive Jesus in our hearts. We never minister unless it’s behind our four walls, or words typed through social media. Our supposedly Christian networks have become platforms for selling supplements and offering “miracle water”, pray cloths, and healing oils in exchange for prayer. We sell Jesus like His blood is worth money. We sell salvation as if it’s not free to all who desire it. What has the church become? We’ve become a sect of people who are so prideful we won’t even confess our faults to one another, yet instead we’d rather be embarrassed by the media digging into our lives and exposing everything wrong with us. Yet, we still come together on Sunday morning for a “good time,” when in fact we’re just coming together for therapy sessions or our “fix” just so we can cope with the calamity that we’ve caused. What do we do now? Where do we go? How can we fix what we have allowed to happen since the day we decided that separation of Church and State was a good idea? The solution is to go back to God, be relentless in proclaiming the name of Jesus in our homes, workplaces, communities, and in the world. We have to break the silence and the fear of being persecuted, by our adversaries. Our testimonies cannot remain hidden behind the mics in our pulpits or in the confines of social media. We must work the works of Him that has sent us to this Earth to proclaim His love for ALL his children. We must preach and teach that redemption is possible to anyone that believes in Jesus. We have to stop sending people to hell, before they understand the ultimate sacrifice that Jesus has made for them. Persecution is promised to us, but Jesus rewards us for the fiery trials that Satan will put us through in the end. The world does not understand or know its end, but WE do. We will reign with Him. Will you take the charge that Jesus gave us in Matthew 29: 19-20 ” Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Will you be relentless in proclaiming that He is Lord, is coming back for His Church, and those that serve Him will go back with Him? Will you no longer be ashamed of your testimonies? Will you be afraid to stand on your faith and the word of God at your workplace, your school, your community, and even in your church? What will we do now? What do we do now?

With love,

A concerned citizen of the Kingdom

Capture Your Thoughts and You Will Win

It is in our “THOUGHTS” that the enemy is trying to defeat us. The enemy will begin with the simplest of things and have them snowball into confusion, depression, obsession, and mental anguish. Watch what you put in your mind via Television, Radio, Music, Conversations, because the enemy is NOT letting up on killing us through our mindset. Entertaining false teachings, idle conversation, music that does not edify Christ will leave your mind open to the enemy. When you begin to hear things that do not edify you, encourage you, or uplift you CAST them down immediately. In 2 Corinthians 10:5 it says, “Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;”

Personally, I have been dealing with my thoughts and the things that are in the atmosphere around me that have influenced those thoughts. Television shows, Music, Conversations, Facebook, Twitter have been all things that I have let influence my thought process negatively, I began to seclude myself in my home, avoid social interaction, and believed that EVERYBODY was against me hence my recent near emotional break down. I have learned to “talk to myself” every morning and say, “Yancey NOBODY is against you, but the devil.” And when I began to be paranoid or anxious about anything, I remember to quote Philippians 4:6, “Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done.” This process of controlling my thoughts, and not regarding prayer as OPTIONAL, has given me so much freedom in so little time. I encourage each one of you to “Set your affection on things above, not on things on the earth.” {Colossians 3:2} We will succeed in ALL things that we’ve been called to do and the enemy will not win if we take the Authority God has given us over our THOUGHTS.

Prayer for Our President and Nation

Father in Jesus’ Name,

As your sons and daughters, we have access to your Kingdom, and as citizens we have rights promised to us, because of the covenant you’ve made with us.

We pray that those who profess to be believers would accept the HIGHER calling in you and make decisions through the Holy Spirit that you’ve placed in them. We bind every demonic influence of Control, Greed, Hatred, Lies, and Deceit that run rampant throughout our government. We bind all confusion that would come to cloud the views of our leaders in making decisions concerning us. We trust that you will continue to sustain us in these economic times, and we ask that you keep us as lights to those in darkness. We ask for a supernatural financial increase for our nation. We speak RESTORATION to our Educational System, Every Job, Every Home, and anything Lost in the economic downturn. We pray for other nations that produce oil for the fuel in our vehicles and our basic neccessities. We pray that all civil unrest, and attacks on innocent people cease and a Perfect and Righteous order be restored to those Nations affected. We Pray for Israel, the birthplace of our faith and your covenant to us. We pray continual protection over that nation. Father we lift you above all these circumstances in the world, every natural disaster we ask that you give comfort to every continent faced with disasters.  Father we pray according to your word that our World leaders would:

Pride is Sin Part 1 of 4

Pride is portrayed as a necklace, a crown and fruit in the Bible. The Bible also says it persecutes, testifies, deceives, and brings low. It is often seen as the first sin. It is the sin which caused the Devil to fall from his privileged position as an angel of light. The devil then used the same sin to tempt Adam and Eve away from their fellowship with Almighty God. Satan still tempts us today with the sin of pride.

So what is the world’s definition of Pride?

First, it is the quality or state of being proud, as in inordinate self-esteem or conceit, or a reasonable or justifiable self-respect or delight or elation arising from some act, possession, or relationship (such as parental pride). Secondly, pride is also defined as proud or disdainful behavior or treatment. A third definition is an ostentatious display.

So What are We Typically Proud of?

Here’s a small list:

Spouses Children Good Looks Skills
Where we Live Money we Make Scholarly Degrees Houses we Own
How Smart we Are Schools we Attended Work Accomplishments Sports Teams Successes
Cars, Boats, Motorcycles Fitness or Physical Aspects What we Make or “Create” Awards/Recognition/Titles
Our Ancestry or Nationality Children’s Accomplishments How Much we Give or Donate Our Self-Sufficiency

Hebrew words for Pride

Tip’eret (or tip’arah) Besides pride, it is also translated as beauty, ornament, and distinction. The word represents “beauty,” in the sense of the characteristic enhancing one’s appearance,   and it also represents “honor”  of a nation, in the sense of its position before God. “And thou shalt make holy garments for Aaron thy brother for glory and for beauty”  Ex 28:2

Gobah refers to the “height” of things 2 Chron 3:4 and of men 1 Sam 17:4. Besides height, it is also translated as exaltation, grandeur, haughtiness and of course pride. See the “grandeur” of Job 40:10 or the “haughtiness” or “pride” 2 Chron 32:26

Ga’on The majority of the uses of ga’on are negative in that they connote human “pride” as an antonym for humility Prov 16:18. Proverbs puts ga’on together with arrogance, evil behavior, and perverse speech.

Greek Words for Pride

huperephanos -Appearing above others(conspicuous)  Luke 1:51, Rom 1:30, II Tim 3:2, James 4:6, I Pet 5:5

tuphoo– To envelop with smoke,to inflate with self-conceit   I Tim 6:4

Let’s See What the Bible Says About the Great Sin

1 Corinthians 4:6

Now, brothers, I have applied these things to myself and Apollos for your benefit, so that you may learn from us the meaning of the saying, “Do not go beyond what is written.” Then you will not take pride in one man over against another.

What is pride?

This verse shows us that pride relies upon competition, and that it cannot exist without competition. It’s always about you or me against another.

See also Galatians 6:4 and James 1:9-10

2 Corinthians 5:12

We are not trying to commend ourselves to you again, but are giving you an opportunity to take pride in us, so that you can answer those who take pride in what is seen rather than in what is in the heart.

What is pride?

From this verse we learn that You can be proud of someone else and still be in God’s will. When we are outside of God’s will we can boast in what is seen (the physical aspects of life) as opposed to the spiritual.

See also: 2 Corinthians 7:4, 2 Corinthians 8:24

Now Let’s Look at Some Verses for the Word Proud

Luke 1:51

He has performed mighty deeds with his arm; he has scattered those who are proud in their inmost thoughts.

What is pride?

From this passage we see that pride is something in your heart. One can be conceited and never show it outwardly.

1 Corinthians 13:4

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud.

What is pride?

Since it is not lovely to God, pride is evil.
