It wasn’t too long ago as I prepared to start my day as a Mother, I heard my son shouted from a distance, ‘Mommy help me, help me!
I rushed to
How often have you been told, ‘you don’t wear your shoes right?’ or ‘your hair cannot be braided backwards like a boy or you look like a girl in that pink shirt?’
Many of us have attested to this many a times and what I have discovered, it has nothing to do with where you live or the colour of your skin. You may be thinking, ‘where is she going with all this?’ Well, as the saying goes, you live and you learn. Through living, God have granted me revelations to see with clarity the things I could not have understood outside of his spirit.
As a young woman, with loosed- lace Reebok Sneakers, you are being told, ‘You don’t wear your shoes right?’ Then it propels you to ask yourself, are you different? One question lead to the next, seeds being planted, seeds being watered, and as the days go by and years, you have observed just what they spoke, ‘You don’t wear your shoes right.’ Then you start to act the part and then and only then you start to wear your shoes right. Let me explain.
The statement, ‘You don’t wear your shoes right,’ has fallen into the category of World conformation. What this statement does is to refurbish the mind with distortion and doubts as to who you truly are and who God have created you to be. I am not saying that your mother out of cruelty have birth a distorted soul but what I am saying is even your mother have been enslaved to distortion of the mind. When your mind is distorted, your whole world and normality have become deformed. The moment those words gush through your ears and feed your mind, all you could ask yourself is, ‘Why don’t I wear my shoes right?’ Then it forces you to look blindsided at familiarity, what is around you, what you see daily as you awake and as you approach life’s journey? Then to your discovery, your dad, ‘wears his shoes right.’ To be sure of your discovery, you ask the question, ‘Daddy is that how you should wear your sneakers, with loosed lace and gagging tongue?’ To your satisfaction the answer you received settles your doubts and now you have become sure that you are a reflection of your dad. As the years past, more and more you have been wearing your shoes right, you have been wearing your clothes wrong and so more and more you understand how to adjust to the concerns of society and have now become grown to decide, you were created to be the boy you have always thought you were better at wearing those shoes, because you wore those shoes right from the eyes of a boy. The brain is such a power – house that whatever it grabs, it holds for life until you have decided to let go of distorted conformation. With few words and one statement spoken came the birth of a lesbian, distorted sexuality, distorted identity, distorted mind and distorted spirituality because not only are you physically a homosexual but have grown to be a plethora of divination spirits and the spirit of homosexuality walks and talks with you as you chose to, ‘Wear your shoes right.’
We ought to take our tongue seriously, surely I am not making reference to the so-called pleasurable acts of a lesbian but in general I am making reference to the life of humanity. The words we speak becomes a monument of our experiences, let us practice to speak life and what is truth, godly truth in our lives and the lives of those around us because whether or not you want to believe this, your future is dependent on the words you speak. Imagine the flip side. ‘Hannah, why is your lace loosed and shoe tongue gags?’ ‘In that instance Hannah could say, well mom I feel more comfortable like this, it is an in- thing now.’ ‘Hannah I know it may be an in-thing but there is a higher chance or possibility that your lace being loose may trip you and you may hurt yourself.’ ‘You are beautiful and you don’t need to do everything that others may be doing, be yourself. Words of encouragement always take us to a place of reflection and evaluation of ourselves. While daunting words of de-motivation pushes you to a place of rebellion, distortion and blindsided-compromisation.
Isaiah 45: 9-12 says, ‘Woe to him who quarrels with his Maker, to him who is but a potsherd among the potsherds on the ground. Does the clay say to the potter, ‘what are you making?’ ‘Does your work say he has no hands?’ Woe to him who says to his father, what have you begotten?’ ‘Or his mother, what have you brought to birth?’ This is what the Lord says, the Holy one of Israel, and its maker. Concerning things to come, ‘do you question me about my children or give me orders about the work of my hands?’ It is I who made the earth and created mankind upon it. My own hands stretched out the Heavens. I marshalled their starry hosts.
Why do you Lesbian, Gay, Transgender and Bi-Sexual believe that you hold the power to tell God, the sex or gender you want to be?’ ‘To curse your parents and rebel against your sexual organ, to lobby against your natural identity and question your innate self is a mental deformity caused by external distortional factors such as the very words spoken over or in your lives.
The question is, ‘What are you going to do about it?’ Are you going to accept these statements?
You don’t wear your shoes right
You look like a boy with your hair braided back
You look like a girl in that pink shirt
Are you going to become a walking mirror of distortion and deformity? Or are you going to open your eyes and see life from a new perspective? A transformed mind can only be attained by the spirit of God. Are you going to seek God for answers you have been longing for, for a change you have cheated yourself from, from a life you almost handed over to the spirit of Judas? The moment Judas killed himself was the moment he killed his purposed and destroyed that temple that God have religiously worked on for 6 days, 6 days of hard work since the time of inception, when he created Adam and Eve, he already had you in mind. Are you going to seek God for that change, to wear your clothes right, to wear your mind right, to wear your hair right, to wear your shoes right and to wear your life right?
Isaiah 45: 22 says, ‘Turn to me and be saved, all you ends of the earth; for I am God and there is no other.’
Isaiah 55: 6 says, ‘seek the Lord while he may be found, call upon him while he is near.
With God all things are possible and there is nothing too hard for him to do. There is no sin too big for him to forgive and allow him to begin his work in you. Like rehab, it is not going to be easy, no one said it was going to be easy but what was said, ‘All things are possible with God and his grace is sufficient for you, for his strength is made perfect in weakness. In him and only in him will you find life, do you want life? Seek him now.
Dear God, of all the things I have fallen prey to and have done, please forgive me for I have sinned against you. Help me to understand your truth and transformed my mind as I walk in your purpose. May you hear me in the day of trouble that I may be saved from any temptations that the devil have set out to devour me. Strengthen me O’Lord that I may resist the devil at all angles and place boldness in me that I may witness to others of your change in me. I thank you Lord for delivering me in the name of Jesus Christ Amen.
John 15: 18 states:
If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.
The word of God never goes void, his words are filled with such truth and omnipotence that it encourages you to live by it.
We are often faced with tribulations and set backs due to relationship issues, enemy rivals, tragedies, or just simply the pressures of life to survive. Some times whilst we are kindled in the midst of all that is happening around us, we may ask ourselves, was this really a plan of God, was I to marry this man or woman, was I to do this job, was I to take up this commitment?
If God had called me to this, then why would people be so much against me for no reason, why the persecutions, why the accusations?
Well readers, let us ask ourselves, are every oppositions wrong for us? Let us take a look at what the bible have to say in the book of Exodus, the story of Zipporah & Moses.
In Exodus as the name suggest, it means a mass departure of people. God had ordained Moses with the annointing to deliver those whom are bound. Through Moses’ life, the experiences he had were always connectively aligned with his purpose. Like I have always said, ‘To deliver people, you must have gone through a series of deliverance to learn the intricacies of deliverance.
In Exodus 2:10 it says, ‘And the child grew and she brought him to Pharoah’s daughter and he became her son and she named him Moses, for she said, ‘Because I drew him out of the water.’
To pull someone from a body of water, it means to deliver them to a place of safety. God’s orchestration was always evident, God knew he had to let an Egyptian deliver Moses, so he may learn the ways of the Egyptians, so one day he may deliver the Hebrews from the Egyptians and the Egyptians shall be no-more.
When God is taking you to a place of Purpose Activation, he leads you into conflicting situations and places you on the ultimate training ground. God also places a burning desire or concern upon your heart. Like it says in Exodus 2:11, ‘One day, when Moses had grown up, he went out to his people and looked on their burdens and he saw an Egyptian beating a Hebrew, one of his people. He looked this way and that and seeing no-one he killed the Egyptian and hid him in the sand.’
God impregnated Moses with a purpose to deliver those whom are bound that only he could carry out. When God have a pupose on your life, you will have nay sayers, you will have haters, you will have persecutors, you will have judgers etc. But whatever purpose God have ordained you for, nothing in this world or above can come against it. Your purpose must be fulfilled as you remain confident and steadfast in the path of righeousness. The devil hates what God have in store for some of us, so the devil will always put in place stumbling blocks, obstacles, tragedies etc as a means of distraction from that which God have called you to do. The devil and his demons’ intention is to form a miscarriage in the purpose God have impregnated you with.
I just want to say to someone who is reading this right now, wherever you are, the will of God will not take you where his grace cannot keep you. It is imperative to walk by faith and not by sight. Activate that which God have called you to regardless of those that hate you, say all manner of evil gainst you, persecute you for righteousness sake, and just straight up want to kill you for the annointing God have placed upon you.
Moses did not allow the opposition to distract him. Moses consulted God in all things by believing in his heart that whatever God have called him to, he is covered. In Exodus 2:13-15 says, ‘When he went out the next day, behold two Hebrews were struggling together, and he said to the man that did the wrong, ‘ Why do you strike your fellow?’ He answered, ‘Who made you a prince and a judge over us? Do you mean to kill me as you killed the Egyptian?
Then Moses was afraid and thought, ‘surely the thing is known.’ When Pharoah heard of it, he sought to kill Moses. But Moses fled from Pharoah and stayed in the land of Midian and he sat down by a well.
In this case God did not punished Moses for the fear he had, instead he placed a desire upon Moses’ heart that was fueled by that fear. This fear had propelled Moses to enter another city.
Though Pharoah grew Moses, the act of hate was still evident, Exodus clearly showed us that, even our very family or close loved ones are not all sent to like us, but some were elected to be haters, to be betrayers, to be informers, to be persecutors, to be a Pharoah.
Just as Moses did, he fled the scene so God could have fight for him on his behalf, to be away from the noise and so he could hear the instructions of God.
If you are going through some Pharoah events, know that the God that delivers, did it before and he is able to do it gain.
Stay tuned for the 2nd half of this new post, ‘Not every-one was sent to like you|The Story of Zipporah & Moses. Join me next week Thursday.
Thank you for visiting, reading and spreading the word. See you next time!
When you have placed a glass of water in the freezer. The water becomes frozen and expand and so because the glass no-longer have sufficient space for expansion, it becomes broken.
I am here to tell someone that if only you had placed yourself in the right container, ‘in God’ you would not have been broken, even when your situation have become too cold and too frozen to a place of stillness.
When a plastic container of water have been placed in the freezer, the water becomes ice and expands but the plastic stretches as a support holder.
Isaiah 43:2 states, ‘When you go through deep waters I will be with you.
No matter the depth, no matter how cold it gets, no matter how tearless, numb and frozen the situation becomes. God will support you, his righteous right hand will stretch fort to help you and he will not allow the situation to break you. Don’t be discouraged, be bold, be brave, be courageous. Commit to the Lord, let him carry you, let him be the burden bearer, ‘that plastic container’ and he will sustain you. The moment you have decided to take your situations in your own hands and allow, ‘Self’ to do what only, ‘God’ can do, when the situations have become too cold and frozen with no-more room for expansion, you will break.
The song writer Lauren Daigle said, ‘Even the ocean push and pull at your command. So you could still my heart with your hand. You tell the seasons when its time for them to turn. So I will trust you even when it hurts. You give me everything.’
I want to say to you, ‘Your winter did not come to harm you, it came to prepare you for your spring, so spring may also grant you lessons that feeds your growth so that the firy heat of summer will not burn you but will only cause you to sweat and toil more for righteousness and summer may transform you into autumn so heavy yokes and strong holds may fall off but you will not be shaken or moved by any force that comes and your load may now be light.’
God is who gives everything, the scripture says: Ecclesiastes 3:1 ‘There is a time for everything and a reason for every activity under the Heavens.’
God also reminded us that, ‘he will not cause pain without allowing something new to be born, says the Lord.’
In all things God is to be praised because everything have its due season and its reasons. Praise God for who he is and what he have done. His ressurection power must cause us to only exalt his name. God is God and there is none like him. When the situation is cold praise him, when it is hot praise him, when it is mild praise him because all things must come to an end and at the end it must be to glorify his name.
“Special needs children” whom I rather refer to as, ‘Special Ability Children’ are those with a variety of unique disabilities and abilities and are placed in classes designed to increase their opportunities for learning. Among the abilities and disabilities are such things as Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Autism/Asperger, various learning disabilities, mental illnesses, physical abnormalities and children with limited intellectual capacity.
The classes in which these children are placed in are led by special trained teachers in dealing with these types of children. However, in order to minimize the stigma of being in a separate type of class, these children are often main streamed into classes for average children.
One of the hall marks of many of these children is difficulty controlling them-selves. Many autistic and hyperactive children move around a lot and find it difficult to focus their attention on tasks that may seem irrelevant. As a result, teachers find these kids to be very disruptive whether they are in a main streamed or special education class. With this in mind if a teacher is not specially trained to handle such a child negative remarks may breathe down upon that child, such as; ‘That child is rude, that child is disobedient, that child doesn’t listen, that child needs to be punished or spanked.’ No, that child is just functioning at his or her pace, understanding things according to how his brain functions. That child is not rude or disruptive. They learn differently and as such their learning environment must be different or their feelings may be hurt by rude and negative remarks.
It can be daunting as well, for example, one child was held down by the teacher, finally died of suffocation. Other children are handcuffed, placed in restraints, exiled to time out rooms for hours at a time and ridiculed by their adult supervisors. The time out rooms were meant to serve as a place where a child can get some respite for a brief period while they regain self- control. Instead, they are being locked into the room for several hours at a time. That is harsh for children who are innocent and really don’t know how to act in what we refer to as a normal way.
Amazingly, the laws surrounding these issues are not strongly mandated and as such many teachers and students whom are to be blamed for behaviors of such are left unnoticed..
Every teacher should receive the necessary training to handle all types of special abilities children. With this being done, there will be no room for inappropriate methods of punishments and training.
These children need love and the mild cases need to be associated with what we refer to as normal children so they may develop and learn the ways of social norm and cognitively improve on their understanding of what must and must not be. For example many geniuses are autistic but don’t understand how to be around others in social settings, as a result they need to be around normal children because I believe children learn from each other.
This is a matter of deep concern to any parent of a special needs child. It should be a matter of concern to every person. There needs to be a huge public out-cry against this problem. It is Child’s month, Special Ability Children must be, “Encouraged, Enabled, Included.”

The love of God surpasseth all understanding. His words are a lamp unto our feet. We are the clay and he is the maker of the pot we become when his spirit flushes our system.
What else must we say? ‘God is a good God, yes he is.’ Who could it be but God? You no longer adhered to the laws of the devil, you no longer walk in defeat, you no longer faint at the presence of your storms but you stand firmly and steadfast in his promises, that he withholdeth nothing good from his people.
And so we ask ourselves, who are we?
Are we God’s people, are we for God or are we against God?
So then we view our lives and we are held responsible to take accountability of the choices we make. Have we truly released ourselves in the palm of God’s hands? Have we truly repented of our demonic thoughts or our devilish actions, have we really?
You see God is concerned with our soul and because he is concerned, we have a cross to carry. Praise his holy name for his mercy.
Can you imagine walking in a valley with no-one else on your side but only dried bones in your sight, every direction you turn?
What would be your thoughts? Nothing to eat, no-one to comfort you or to reassure you, no fresh air to breathe but the air of death that surrounds you. You may think to yourselves, ‘I would probably die eventually as I am fed daily with the remains of dead things.’ And then you probably are thinking….’Oh well, thank God this valley of dried bones doesn’t exist in my life but that of Ezekiel’s.’ Look around you, look around your home, does everything have life in it, don’t you see a skull hanging on a rope some where? Okay, what about your plants, are they alive? Wat about your marriage, do you see the crumbs of dried bones or check your mind, do you have a valley of dead things?
The thing about our facade is that….it is not faithful to us……it cheats the relationship of our hearts and is only faithful to our outward mask, the facade is also a skull, a dried bone painted in our image, a counterfeit of what life is. We live our lives bearing witness daily with Persia and dancing with skulls in the clothing of Lazarus. Yet we ask,
‘When are we going to see our break through?’
‘When are we going to be healed?’ ‘When are we going to get that job of our desire?’
‘When are we going be able to finish our studies?’
‘When are we going to get that husband or wife?’
‘When are we going to enjoy our marriage again or our spouses?’
‘When, when, when?’
The real question is, ‘do you think death walks freely or was it commanded?’
God spoke and called Lazarus by name and commanded him to be awakened. God spoke. He spoke life as he believed in his powers to prophesy and changed atmospheres. God spoke to Ezekiel and said, ‘Ezekiel, go to the valley and prophesy these things.’ Ezekiel spoke!
The thing about prophesying is that, prophesying holds no communion with dead believes. Dead believes is the reproductive organs for dried mouth and an infertile tongue –Phoebe Robin-. God is saying as he calls fort Lazarus by name the same spirit that woke Lazarus from the dead God have annointed you with that power to step fort and call every dead situation in your life by name and prophesy. Speak the word, ‘Thus saith the Lord God unto these bones; Behold, I will cause breath to enter into you, and ye shall live.’ God is saying, get up and rip every dead clothing off and break every grave. Throw out every facade, every mask, every scent of death and speak life. Put the flesh of God’s mighty words on every dried up bones and step fort as you believe in the power of life in the power of God that everything that has breath must praise God. We don’t worship a God that doesn’t need recognition, we worship a God that needs to be glorified, as a result speak life in every dead thing and awaken their position so even those things unspokenly in their moment of life, they may glorify the God of Ezekiel and the God of Lazarus and the people of God will now know; trust and believe the word of God, ‘And I will multiply upon you man and beast; and they shall increase and bring fruit: and I will settle you after your old estates, and will do better unto you than at your beginnings: and ye shall know that I am the Lord.’
God is saying, command your valley of dried bones to be an army of life.
Hosea 1:2 stated,
“This was the Lord’s first message to Hosea. The Lord said, “Go marry a prostitute who has had children as a result of her prostitution. Do this because the people in this country have acted like prostitutes-they have been unfaithful to the Lord.”
Go marry a prostitute was the command of God to the prophet Hosea. Many have the notion that God’s will for any marriage is to be equally yoked. A prophet and a prostitute doesn’t seem like much of an equilibrium. Infact it doesn’t seem like a match of God’s divine order based on what society refers to as equally yoked. Was Gomer and Hosea equally yoked or were they unequally yoked? Many may have asked the same question, and many may have been shocked at the thought of a prostitute and a prophet of God. Many would have believed that when God made the command, Gomer’s past life became null and void, all her sins were washed away and she was made new for the coming of the prophet Hosea. This the majority would use to justify the act to make more sense out of it using our very own little brain that is yet to phatom the works of God.
Hosea’s purpose was not only to marry a prostitute but his purpose was to bring a revelation to the shame that conceals the act of sin and reveals the purpose within the sin of whoredom. Not only Hosea but Gomer was purposed by God to be used as an example to a nation that needed a wake up call. Could you imagine yourself being used by God as a prostitute? Many would think, “Oh no, God did not use Gomer as a prostitute, infact God would never be apart of such sinful lifestyle.” Well, in my perception a prostitute may very well be used to the Glory of God’s work too, to bring forth revelation and to fulfill his divine will and purpose. Gomer’s character was the direct imagery of Israel. The Israelites were known to be God’s people and so when they began to commit adultery, fornication and idolatry with other gods, Jehovah, God decided he would have used the flesh of a human whom have identical ways and motives to demonstrate to the people of Israel that they will be punished greatly and will no longer be his people. “What a beautiful but complex and harsh love story you may think.”
God had demonstrated his un-dying and unconditional love for his people through the merciful eyes and actions of Hosea. Though Hosea was hurt terribly and was battling between the thoughts of anger, frustration, doubt and pain, he still availeth himself to the works of God, he hearkened unto God’s command and chose to forgive Gomer his promiscuous wife and he reclaimed her back in his arms and in his heart. He loved her truly regardless of the many deceipts, the many affairs, the many occasions of scandulous words against him and the insensitive care towards him.
Just as Hosea forgave Gomer, God forgave us. Just has how Hosea granted mercy, God desired to grant us the same. However, mercy, forgiveness and grace could not be experienced if Gomer hadn’t made a choice as well to accept. Gomer also hearkened unto God’s voice regardless of her many sins, she too followed God’s command to accept marriage, to bear children, to return from her whoredom to the life with her loving Husband. If we look closely at Jamaica, we would see a Gomer and an Hosea. In every day life and relationships, the Gomer and Hosea spirits are evident. When we looked around us in the spiritual realm, for those whom understand, Jamaica, though beautiful in culture we are devious in ways. The people of Jamaica have become whores serving other gods and building their idols from just about anything they could worship. From nicromancy to homosexuality, to adultery of serving other false Gods, satansim, to buduism, to the very smart phones and tablets that exist in this fast going world. So was Gomer and Hosea equally yoked? No, but the scripture Mark 10:9 stated, “What God put together, let no man put asunder.” This I believe that all things works together for good of those whom love the Lord and all things must be to his Glory and not man.
Because Israel had gotten so prosperous as a country, the issues presented itself of moral and spiritual slum baths. Just as in Jamaica and in Hosea’s marriage, prosperity came and the fruit of their womb became obviously blessed and so secularism and materialism captured the hearts of the Jamaican people like it had captured the heart of Gomer and as a result, sin became an explosive factor, rampant. God is saying to us, stop the swearing, lying, killing, stealing, perversion, sexual immorality, sexual addiction, perjury, deceit, oppression, drunkenness, false witnessing, adultery but more so stop this seduction for idolatry. Come back to him, God is saying, “come back to me and I will restore thee.”
As it stated in Hosea 4:18-19, “Their drink is sour: they have committed whoredom continually: her rulers with shame do love, Give ye.
19: The wind hath bound her up in her wings , and they shall be ashamed because of their sacrifices.”
How shameful is it, to be loved and yet do wrong? Have you ever been caught by the Holy Spirit in an unworthy act and you scorn your own self just by the thoughts of what you did and not just what you did but who you disobeyed? Have you ever shed tears of regrets, because the sins you have committed cannot be forgotten by you but you know that your loving Father in Heaven forgave you and you are just at awe at his love and his un-dying mercy and his assurance?
Well imagine how Gomer must have felt when her loving Husband came and re-claimed her though she did him wrong. Imagine the strength Hosea had to follow God’s command and forgive her and to take her back. Imagine how God feels when we know what’s right and yet we allow the flesh to lead us to shame. Imagine the love God have for us why he is able to accept us regardless of our flaws. Imagine his soverignty when we are given that chance to hearkened unto his voice. Imagine Jamaica, when Gomer had return to her rightful home and role. Imagine if we hearkened unto God’s voice and return to God. Imagine what supernatural powers would transform this little country, Jamaica land we love. The Jamaican Gomer, must return. She must be return from her whoredom to be restored and healed.
