At the end of every school year millions of students around the world are presented with report cards. On those report cards they are given grades for individual subjects
as well as a cumulative grade. In a box usually located towards the bottom of the page they see these words: “PROMOTED TO THE NEXT GRADE.”

This means that you have passed the criteria for each class successfully and that time in that grade is over!!!

Grade Promotion for Standers are as follows:

BABIES – > Toddlers
If you were a baby, you have been promoted to toddler which means the amount of crying decreases, you are now walking and talking. You are no longer allowed to do some of the things that you used to do at the degree you used to do them. Yes you may still cry just not as much. Yes you may fall but you get back up and try again. You go from gibberish to actual words (your speech becomes clearer and the angels can actually understand what you are saying). You are going from diapers to the potty chair…….YOUR A BIG KID NOW!

TODDLERS -> Preschool
If you were a toddler, you are now being promoted to Pre-School. That means that for certain amounts of time you are taught the basics of the word of God away from your parents, guardians and begin to be taught the principles, basics for that you will use throughout your life. You still cry when things are not going your way or when you see your spouse “getting” away with sin, you tell God that you are not going to be His friend because He is not doing it the way you want it done. However, after a substantial number of timeouts you begin to understand that it is not over until God says it’s over.

PRESCHOOL – > Kindergarten
If you were a preschooler, you are now being promoted to Kindergarten. Girded with the basics, in kindergarten you will continue to build and learn the shapes and colors of the spiritual realm. You will learn how to actually read the word of God and how to begin to comprehend what you read. You will learn how to play together, worship together, how people are different in their levels of faith but the common goal is the same: God comes first and everything and everyone follows the leader. You still throw temper tantrums, get placed in timeout, pout, cry and stomp but you will learn that this gets you nowhere because well you have to get through this to get to the next level.

Kindergarten -> Elementary School
If you were a Kindergartener you are now being promoted to Elementary School. You now have a foundation and for the next few seasons of your life (only God determines the length of those seasons) you will build on your knowledge at the fastest rate ever thought possible. By the end of these seasons you will be able to add, subtract, multiply and divide your situations and circumstances. You will learn to discern when to add people to your life and when to let people go. You will multiply in the knowledge of His Word and learn how to rightfully and divide the word of truth. Where you used to cry and emotions were on a constant roller coaster ride. Seeing your spouse act completely outside of the will of God will not bother you as much. Yes you will moan and mumble under your breath but the emails and FB posts will decrease as you find out that God really does hear and answer your prayers quickly to build your faith because He holds your hand every step of the way. You learn that when the bell rings your season is changing but He never leaves you alone.

Elementary -> Middle School
If you were in Elementary you are now being promoted to Middle School. This can be a very confusing time for the stander as accountability and responsibility changes. God still holds your hand but He starts to give you a bit more freedom so that you can begin to see who He has created you to be. You will find out at this time what makes you happy and what makes you sad. You want your parent to be there but not actually walk you in the building. It is not as easy as you thought it would be but you start to get the swing of things. You start to feel guilty if you don’t pray or if you hear God say something and you miss it. You are very selective in friendships as you find out you have outgrown many of your elementary level friends. What God has told you does not appease to everyone and folk begin to distance themselves from you calling you weird, dork or even Noah.

Middle School -> High School
Get Ready! Get Ready! You find out that you can get around by yourself. You know what to expect. You can go from point A to point B without much assistance. You start to see obstacles as a chance to show what your God can do. The alarm wakes you up, independence has now set in and you begin to understand that you have to make this happen. The courses get harder but your will to live kicks in and your determination to make is stirred up. Yes you may fail a course here and there and end up in summer school but you have set in your heart that you will graduate with your class. Your marriage will be restored and whatever you have to do, you suck up and handle it with God’s help of course. You are an overcomer, more than a conqueror, unshakeable always abounding in the work of the Lord.

This next promotion is all on you! Some go to college, trade school, etc. headed for destiny and purpose but whatever it is they continue to elevate their knowledge in their God even after the manifestation of their restoration. The sky is the limit because the God they serve is infinite. What is your next promotion? Seek God ask Him where He is taking you next. He is the one that created you for His pleasure and only He can tell which way to go and how to go about getting there. You will NEVER NO IT ALL. There is always something to learn and something to teach standers coming behind you. REMEMBER – WE ALL MUST BE RECONCILED BACK TO CHRIST, at one time or another.

You go from student to teacher, THE CYCLE ENDS WHEN JESUS RETURNS!

Congratulations are your promotion! Promotion comes from God NO One else.

Many of you may be wondering what is going on as your prodigal has returned home. Things are not exactly what you had envisioned and the enemy continues to play mind games with you as to whether or not this is really God. Some issues may be lack of closeness, accountability, intimacy and the list goes on. The stander has to take into account everything that has happened whether your separation/divorce was the result of improper use of finances, abuse, infidelity, you have to take a step back and realize that something came in to destroy your marriage and that it is has to be rebuilt.

Let’s take a look at Nehemiah 1: 3b – “The survivors who are left from the captivity in the province are there in great distress and reproach. The wall of Jerusalem is also broken down, and its gates burned with fire.”

The survivors as a result of your prodigal experience are you and your spouse and children if any. You have reconciled, however the walls (the structures) of your marriage are broken down and your gates (the hedges) protecting your marriage have burned with fire. Although we have the victory we have to face the fact that the trial happened and repair needs to be completed. With that being said don’t expect that your marriage is going to be perfect from the time they walk back in the door because it’s not. You have to repair the damaged areas. We have to take the steps that Nehemiah took after he realized what had happened in 1:3b.

Nehemiah 1:4-11 (Nehemiah PRAYED) – Read in entirety when you have time and allow the Holy Spirit to show you as He showed me.

For time sake, I want to focus on vs. 8 – Remember, I pray, the word that You commanded Your servant Moses, saying, “If you are unfaithful, I will scatter you among the nations; but if you return to Me, and keep My commandments and do them though some of you were cast out to the farthest part of the heavens, yet I will gather them from there, and bring them to a place which I have chosen as a dwelling for My name.”

The first steps in restoration are reconciliation, realizing something happened, and that some areas were destroyed and then bringing God in remembrance of His Word as Nehemiah did. Pray according to Nehemiah 1:8 Lord, I obeyed your commandments and you said that if I did that though some of you( trust, love, fidelity, intimacy etc.) were cast out to the farthest part of the heavens, yet I will gather them from there, and bring them to a place which I have chosen as a dwelling for My name.

Certain areas of your marriage was scattered due to unfaithfulness to the marriage covenant, now you have to pray for God to gather those missing scattered pieces back in rebuilding your marriage as He promised due to your obedience as the stander and the obedience of the prodigal that returned home choosing God rather than the world.

Warfare doesn’t stop, it continues. Pray without ceasing.

Remember the word which Moses the servant of the Lord commanded you, saying, The Lord your God hath given you rest, and hath given you this land.

Your wives, your little ones, and your cattle, shall remain in the land which Moses gave you on this side Jordan; but ye shall pass before your brethren armed, all the mighty men of valour, and help them;

Until the Lord have given your brethren rest, as he hath given you, and they also have possessed the land which the Lord your God giveth them: then ye shall return unto the land of your possession, and enjoy it, which Moses the Lord’s servant gave you on this side Jordan toward the sunrising. (‭Joshua‬ ‭1‬:‭13-15‬ KJV)

God wants us to be so secure in the promises that he has given us that we are able to assist others in obtaining their promise. Possession of the promise has instructions – Help others possess their promise then enjoy your promise.

The problem that many people have, is that once they receive breakthrough and they forget to assist others in obtaining their breakthrough. As we send this scripture God instructs the people that they will not be able to enjoy their promise until the assist others in obtaining theirs.

The key to enjoying your promise is assisting others in obtaining their promise. Assist others with a grateful heart because the Lord loves a cheerful giver. We are our brothers keeper.

Abram drove them away

And he said unto him, Take me an heifer of three years old, and a she goat of three years old, and a ram of three years old, and a turtledove, and a young pigeon. And he took unto him all these, and divided them in the midst, and laid each piece one against another: but the birds divided he not. And when the fowls came down upon the carcases, Abram drove them away. (‭Genesis‬ ‭15‬:‭9-11‬ KJV)

In this passage. Abraham is being given instructions on an offering to lay before the Lord in regards to God’s promise of a child. I want to focus on the last part of this verse where it states “Abraham drove them away.”

There are many promises that the Lord has given each and everyone of us. Promises of healing both in the mind and the body. Promises of strengthening marriages, marital restoration, promises of childbearing etc. you have a responsibility in defending those promises to drive anything away that is in opposition to those promises.

How do you drive things away? By the word of God.

Standing over your promises declaring and decree in the word of God drives away demonic forces, negative words and any opposing forces.

After Jesus came out of the wilderness from the 40 days and 40 nights he was tempted by the devil. The way that Jesus drove the devil away was by the word of God. Abraham literally protected the offering and physically drove away the things that were trying to eat the promises away. We understand that we wrestle not against flesh and blood but against principalities rulers of darkness in high places. We drive away the enemy from all promises by decreeing the word of God.

It is written: By His stripes, I am healed
It is written: What God has joined together
It is written: God has plans to prosper me

Drive the buzzards away from your promises by decreeing the word of the Lord!

Its football season and everyone goes nuts when the opposing teams ball is intercepted by the team you are rooting for. Intercept means to stop, deflect, or interrupt the progress or intended course of.

It’s time for some spiritual interceptions to take place. It’s time to stop allowing the opposing team any more yards gained in your progress. The attacks are intercepted by prayers of the righteous,
Those prayers availeth much.

Perform some interceptions today!

1. If the enemy is attacking you with fear, INTERCEPT with “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.”

2. If the enemy is attacking your body with illness, INTERCEPT with “By His stripes I am healed.”

3. If you are fighting temptations of the flesh, INTERCEPT with “And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.”

4. If you are fighting attacks in your mind, INTERCEPT with “I cast down all imaginations and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God.”

5. If you are fighting attacks against your business or income, INTERCEPT with “It is the Lord that gives me power to gain wealth.”

In Jesus name, Amen!

Standing – The Physical Exam

As I read through many of the postings on FB and other places. The foundation that everyone is trying to get at is why this strife is happening to them.
Many begin to explain the comings and goings of every aspect of their lives as they look for someone to explain to them why God is allowing this to happen.

You are hurt even at the point of despair and any sort of relief is welcomed to end the “right now” pain.

When you go to a doctor, you give him/her the symptoms of what you are experiencing. There are times where the physician can immediately give a diagnosis write a prescription and send you out the door. Then there are times where testing has to take place to get to the root of the issue (diagnosis) followed by a treatment plan.

When you express what you are going through, you are expressing the symptoms. It is going to take an examination of the Great Physician to give you a diagnosis and the proper treatment plan which consist of His Word, Your Faith, and your Mindset. There is no one on this natural physical earth that can tell you the right way to your victory but they can encourage you in knowing that you are victorious and more than a conqueror.

As you seek God, He can begin to reveal what the source of the issue is. The problem with this is, we don’t usually like what He shows us and the reason we don’t like it is because He starts with us, not our spouse, children, family etc… Yes a symptom may be separation, but the root cause could be a generational curse that has come down through your lineage to you and/or your spouse. If mom went through it, granddad went through it then something is not right.

Just like there are inherited diseases in the natural, there are generational diseases in the spirit. Once you figure out the issue then you have to begin to break that thing out of your life, and guess what, it does not happen overnight. Treatment plans are administered over time to ensure the disease is wiped out with all of its roots.

If God has told you to stand for your family’s salvation, deliverance, marriage etc., then you are the one that He saw before the world began.
God said “Cheryl” will be the one that will awaken herself and break every generational curse so that the generations to come will not be affected.

There is always one that God can trust to see an assignment through and that my friend is you.

Take your symptoms to God and ask Him for a diagnosis and treatment plan to end cycles that have been plaguing your family for years.

Physicals save lives, it is not admitting that you need a physical that can lead to death. Death of purpose and destiny for you and generations to come.

Make your appointment and go to Dr. Jesus today! He is right every time!

In light of the news and its reports on the ISIS situation something came to me.

These people literally sit back and plan how they can hurt Or destroy Americans. That is their focus and goal – sad but true. They sit around and contemplate how to take people out for no reason Except jealousy and hatred.

This is the same thing that the enemy and his kingdom of darkness does.

Assassinate is defined in Webster: to injure or destroy unexpectedly and treacherously. This is the enemy’s goal against all of us.

John 10:10 – “ The thief comes only to steal, kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.”

So now our white house administration has to sit back and plan how to counterattack this attack and currently as we speak, their are planes in the air hovering over ISIS ready to perform an airstrike if necessary.

Matthew 11:12 – “Now from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take
It by force.”

There is power in the spoken Word of God.

In Genesis 1:2 – …the Spirit of God was hovering over the waters and when God spoke creation began…..

I understand crying, hurt and pain but none of that is going to move the enemy. The only thing that moves the enemy is the WORD OF GOD!!!! Just as the white house is planning to do we must do also.

You have to hover over your situations speaking, decreeing and declaring the Word of God. As you speak the Word of God, it is just like bullets being sent upon your enemy, turning the treacherous acts they sent out towards themselves.

If the enemy has come against your finances and you are a tither: Assassinate them with: It is written, if I bring my tithes into the
storehouse, that God Will rebuke the devour for my sake in Jesus name! Bind up debt and poverty and loose wealth in Jesus name!

If the enemy has come against your family and their salvation: Assassinate them with, It is written, that God promised my entire house-
hold will be saved. Bind up every rebellious spirit and loose salvation into each one of their lives in Jesus name!

If the enemy has come against your health: Assassinate them with, It is written: healing is the children’s bread. He was wounded for my transgressions, bruised for my iniquities the chastisement of my peace was upon Him and by His stripes I am HEALED!!! Bind sickness and
disease, loose healing in Jesus name!

If the enemy has come against your marriage: Assassinate them with, It is written: What God has joined together, let no man (woman, spirit)
separate. Bind the spirit of divorce and separation, loose unity and restoration of the marital covenant in Jesus name!

Continue to speak the Word of God and you will spend less time on the temporary natural circumstance you see in your face! Yes I know they
Are talking about you, judging you, giving you bad doctors reports, telling you that it’s over and to move on but you continue to praise the NAME
That is above all the other names. Jesus is the name that demons tremble. Everything the enemy throws, throw it back, return to sender!!!

Your fight is not on the ground but in the air! You are seated in heavenly places and the enemy is under your feet. You are launching your weapon
Of mass destruction not from the ground but from the 3rd heaven into the second heaven. You have been given authority to tread upon serpents,
Scorpions and over all the power of the enemy. Your fight is not with people but against spirits!!!

So continue to fight the good fight of faith, in the AIR seated in heavenly places!
