Are You Ready For The Rapture (The Return of Jesus Christ)

Tuesday, June 17, 2008

Are you ready for the return of Jesus Christ? We all need to be honest with ourselves. There definitely are things I need to work on, but I can say that I am saved. My salvation does not require me to be perfect or sinless. That is impossible. But it does require that I believe that Jesus exists, that he died on the cross, and was resurrected. Do you want to live on once your physical body perishes? Do you want to be with your loved ones and friends when God allows your life (as you know it) to end on Earth? I would like to encourage you to become saved if you are not. And if you are saved, there is nothing wrong with re-committing yourself to Christ. Remember Jesus is the only true access to God.
It is really important that you watch the video below:

So again, I ask, are you really ready for the return of Jesus Christ (the rapture).

Weapons To Use During Spiritual Warfare

Tuesday, June 10, 2008

I know I am not alone in noticing challenges intensify as you set out to do good. In fact, I am tempted to judge my direction in life based on the number of obstacles that seem to come my way. If there are no obstacles, then I tend to think perhaps I am not on the right course. These obstacles come during small goals that I am trying to achieve as well as larger goals.  As an example of a small goal, my Mother and I were trying to workout, something I have not done literally in months. This is something that will help me to relieve stress, and clear the clutter out of my mind. Well, we were successfully working out at my home for a good 10 minutes and suddenly, my cable went out. We were using FitTv to get our workout on, and for no reason the picture just froze. It remained that way for the rest of the day. Even calling out the “cable men” to fix it, did not solve the problem. And that is just one example. Let me give you another.

When financially I am starting to see the light after a divorce, a previous  stint of unemployment, and receiving a tax refund, out of nowhere not one but both of my A/C units stop working, which dealt a blow to my finances.

Yet, here is another example of an obstacle. As I was about to reach out to a reverend to see if he would be a guest blogger on this site, my internet was down. I needed the internet connection because I found the contact information for the reverend on a particular website. Without access to the internet,  I could not make contact with the reverend. 

It seems the pattern in my life is the more I attempt to do the right things, the more obstacles I face. Yet, I am pretty positive about it because I recognize the pattern and I know it just affirms I am on the right path. Not only that, I also know what or who is behind the spiritual warfare. God’s word says in

Ephesians 6:12

For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.

I also know that God is still God and that He uses everything (even the bad) for good. The Amplified Bible states in

Romans 8:28

We are assured and know that [[a]God being a partner in their labor] all things work together and are [fitting into a plan] for good to and for those who love God and are called according to [His] design and purpose.

We know God is our partner and that through the good and bad times we will prevail ultimately for God’s glory. 

Psalms 46:10-11 (Amplified Bible)

10Let be and be still, and know (recognize and understand) that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations! I will be exalted in the earth!
11The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our Refuge (our High Tower and Stronghold). Selah [pause, and calmly think of that]!

So when I am “attacked”, I just keep in mind that God is in this with me for His kingdom’s sake. He is my partner in any battle. I am also comforted because He says His word can not return void. Don’t believe me? Check out what God says in

Isaiah 55:11

So shall My word be that goes forth out of My mouth: it shall not return to Me void [without producing any effect, useless], but it shall accomplish that which I please and purpose, and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.

In times of peril, we need to verbally speak God’s word (boldly, confidently) because He clearly says it can not return void. So I would like to share some scripture that you can speak out loud as you experience spiritual warfare. Why? Again, God’s word can not return void. I want to encourage you to read Psalm 23 below. At the end there is a cute video of a little girl reciting the same scripture. Enjoy!.

Psalm 23

A Psalm of David.
 1THE LORD is my Shepherd [to feed, guide, and shield me], I shall not lack.
 2He makes me lie down in [fresh, tender] green pastures; He leads me beside the still and restful   waters.(A)
 3He refreshes and restores my life (my self); He leads me in the paths of righteousness [uprightness   and right standing with Him–not for my earning it, but] for His name’s sake.
 4Yes, though I walk through the [deep, sunless] valley of the shadow of death, I will fear or dread   no evil, for You are with me; Your rod [to protect] and Your staff [to guide], they comfort me.
 5You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies. You anoint my head with [a]oil; my   [brimming] cup runs over.
 6Surely or only goodness, mercy, and unfailing love shall follow me all the days of my life, and   through the length of my days the house of the Lord [and His presence] shall be my dwelling place

Prophecy Spoken May 18, 2008 at Living Word Christian Center

Tuesday, June 3, 2008

I felt it was imperative that I share the following prophecy I found today but was actually spoken May 18 at Living Word Christian Center in Forest Park, Illinois under Pastor Bill Winston. It is very timely for me personally because it came 3 days after I was laid off my “job”. So I am posting the spoken prophecy in it’s entirety without making any changes to it. These are not my words. And I can not tell from the website who was used by God to relay the message. But I do know this is a church under great and reputable leadership. Read it. Feed on it. And for some of you, this will be very timely and make sense. For others, you may need to let the words marinate for a season or two. And it could also mean the message is not for everyone. But since we have the internet which allows millions access to so much information, I feel it is important to share this as well. Here is the link to read the prophecy Or you can read complete prophecy below:

Prophecy Spoken Sunday, May 18, 2008
11:15 a.m. Worship Service

My people, it has been five months since I spoke to you of things to come and I gave you instruction.  And to you now I say, to you, who know the value of obedience and know how to exercise diligence.  To you I say, the first phase of the manifestation of harvest is upon you now.  For your faithfulness is allowing me to do what I desire to do and to bring about my plans and my purposes, not only for this house, but for the world to which I have called you… to the world for which I have anointed you and to the world for which I am bringing wealth into your hands to use for my kingdom purposes.  And so to you now I say, stand!  Decree to the north and to the north say, release now!  Release the harvest that my words have assembled.  And to the south I say, to you turn to the south and stand and decree to the south, the highways of transference have been prepared.  Begin the wealth transfer now!  Begin, begin because my words have prepared the highway on which it may travel.  And to the east and to the west, to you my people I say, decree.  Open the floodgates and begin now to fill the storehouses.  And to your angels say, I command you now to go forth and I command you to both direct and to protect the first phase of these harvest manifestations.  See that no harm comes to them.  See that they go to their assigned places and see that every strategy, every plot, and every plan that the enemy has arrayed is destroyed.  And to those of you who let those things I said slip.  To those who neglected to do what I asked you to do.  To you I say, take heed unto yourselves, for instruction is for doing, and revelation is to bring forth manifestation, and storehouses are given to be filled.  And to all of you, my people I say, there is wisdom and revelation available to you now.  Revelation and wisdom concerning the harvest that will enable you to receive above and beyond even the thousand-fold that you thought was possible.  But wisdom is not given away freely in the streets and revelation is not to be abused.  It is not to be taken lightly.  But to those of you who have ears to hear and have a heart to obey and desire above all else to see my will and my plans and purposes to be brought to pass.  To you I say, press into me now for that revelation and that wisdom have been laid up just for you for such a time as this.  And I tell you, all harvests are not the same.  Indeed, but it takes wisdom and revelation to understand them and to know how to bring them forth.  But to you, I tell you now, it is available.  The choice is yours.  The choice is yours.  And I say to you, my people, make the right choice.

Miracles Still Happen- A Woman Dead For 15 minutes Awakes After Prayer

Tuesday, May 27, 2008

No one can ever tell me that there is no God and that He does not perform miracles. I also have learned to not dismiss things as coincidence. The Associated Press reported a woman who was dead for at least 15 minutes suddenly awakes after family prayer and a miracle from God. For more information, take a look at the video below:

Two things stand out to me in this video: 1. Prayer done by a nephew 2. the delay in pulling the “dead” woman off life support because of being an organ donor. Some would think the second one was a matter of coincidence, but I disagree. These events were used by God for His glory. He exists! He lives! And by grace, mercy, and salvation so do we in Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior! Hallelujah!

If you know of any miracles you would like to share, send them to

God Bless You and Your Family!

Downsized But Encouraged

Tuesday, May 20, 2008

I was unexpectedly downsized by my employer last Thursday (May 15, 2008). And my first reaction was “okay”. After all, I had been through unemployment when the IT Industry collapsed around 2001 for me. Interestingly enough, I had just started to rebuild financially and had an increasing credit score to prove it. I had been able to start re-furnishing my house after going through a divorce in 2006. It takes a while to build up when your life is turned upside down. So here I am again in a similar predicament. But this time my faith is stronger. This time I actually have a relationship with God. As I reminisce on what I went through the first time I was unemployed, I remember that it was difficult to go through but when I got to the other side, I was a better person. I found out who really “had my back”. I drew closer to God. And ultimately, I ended up in a better place…at least for a moment.

So as I compare the times of unemployment, I can not help but ask God “Why?”. What is this term of unemployment supposed to teach me? What will I learn from this test that I can later share with whoever God puts in my path? Will I be less stressed this time around? Actually, I can tell I will be less stressed.
But the second day after receiving the news of being laid off, the flesh started to take over. I begin to have strong feelings of anger. I wanted to fight, to tear up something and/or somebody. After all, I am only human.
But I made sure I prayed. I made sure that I listened to sermons on Christian television like TBN and Daystar. I made sure that the only thing I listened to on the radio was Christian stations. And earlier one morning on one Christian radio station, I heard a gospel song by Donald Lawrence & Tri-city singers called “Encourage Yourself”.
And that is exactly what we need to do…encourage ourselves.
Let me emphasize, once we achieve salvation (we are born again in the Holy Spirit), then we truly have power to encourage ourselves and power over the enemy. God’s Word says in
Luke 10:19
Behold! I have given you authority and power to trample upon serpents and scorpions, and [physical and mental strength and ability] over all the power that the enemy [possesses]; and nothing shall in any way harm you.

I would like to encourage you to listen to the relevant song “Encourage Yourself” in the following video:

Walking in love,

A Song That Will Encourage Anyone-Brenda Waters “Victory”

Tuesday, May 13, 2008

I began feeling a little tired last week. It was not the physical tiredness from exercising or anything physical. It was more of a mental and I dare to say spiritual tiredness. At times it seems like I can not do things quick enough. There is so much to do in only 24 hours. There are so many peoples’ needs I need to meet. Then I have my own goals on top of that list of things to do or accomplish. Pardon me gentlemen but this is a constant dilemma many women face.

The thing is, I have been feeling like I have been battling but can not clearly identify who or what is attacking me. To be honest, alot of it is brought on by my own ambition. I have to work on not allowing my flesh to take over and do the fighting. After all, God says in

Exodus 14:14

The Lord will fight for you, and you shall hold your peace and remain at rest.

I am very honest with my self and very critical as well. I know that at times there is too much Tayarisha Joyce involved in dealing with things and not enough God. So during quiet moments I have asked God to forgive me for taking over and not trusting Him enough. I have been also honest in admitting this is a stronghold I will be working on for some time. I thank God for His grace and mercy for forgiving me for trying to “run things”.

But what really helped me were 2 things: 1. I got in a quiet place and listened to a CD I purchased “The Lord Is My Healer” by A. Ryab and Sid Roth. 2. I listened to an encouraging song by Brenda Waters called “Victory”.

If you or anyone you know is going through a difficult time right now, let me encourage you to listen to “Victory” over and over and over until it sinks into your spirit.

God Bless You!
