In these end times, we are seeing thy Lord’s Plan of Salvation manifest for voices who are known throughout the world come to exalt Him. What a marvelous sight it was for me when the Holy Spirit graced me with a prophetic dream of singer, Beyoncé worshipping Him!
In this dream, of which I have not shared publicly until now, I saw Beyoncé and her husband, rapper and businessman, Jay Z. The couple was in a hidden room. In this small space with white walls, I saw brown wooden folding chairs which reminded me of those that were used in the fellowship hall of my childhood church. Seated stoically on one of the chairs was Jay Z who eyes were fastened on his beautiful wife. The remainder of the chairs were empty.
The talented singer stood in the front of this room, graced with wonderful worship unto the Lord Jesus. The sweet aroma of worship for our King was released as Beyoncé sang, “Hallelujah!”
The voice of him that crieth in the wilderness, prepare ye the way of the Lord, make straight in the desert a highway for our God. Isaiah 40:3

Ye have seen what I did unto the Egyptians, and how I bare you on eagles’ wings, and brought you unto myself. Exodus 19:4
The Master has been most faithful to me during our blessed fellowship wherefore He caused me to remember a certain time of profound favor in my life. This wealthy season was a Plan from Heaven to release steps for a destiny wherefore was yet hidden from me. I remain in awe of the Lord for His faithfulness and those whom He sent to work with me during that season of my stewardship in supporting battered women and their children.
During such time of serving the Lord through hurting families it was simply one open door the Blessed Master opened for me to speak in His church which opened doors throughout this blessed Country of America. Thereafter, the Master was faithful to release favor upon me to become a playwright and produce a sold-out Christian play. Amen.
In the Book of Exodus, Chapter 19:4, the Scripture records, the Children of Israel was brought out from the Egyptians by the Holy Lord on eagles wings. Thy Lord is most faithful to allow tragedies, oppression and sufferings to visit us in the wilderness for His glory. And, for me His grace was sufficient in losses and sickness in an wilderness season to bring me unto Himself. Having pondered on the specific time whereby the enemy conspired to end my life prematurely there is a gratitude for the Blessed One I am not yet able to convey. Most surely, as I write this month’s letter of encouragement my heart may whisper to you of receiving from Heaven generous waves of love while I revisited the day my Blessed Lord appeared to me to giveth me a miracle of healing. Oh, how I love the Lamb of God!
Dear ones, in your waiting on the promises of thy Lord be encouraged and seek Him for His will and timing for the desires in your heart. It shall come to pass for nothing is impossible with the Lord God.
Give unto the Lord the glory due unto His Name; worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness. Amen.

Declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure. Isaiah 46:10
Twelve years ago, the Blessed Lord was most faithful to open the curtains from what had been a lengthy season of mourning for me to strategic connections to transition me into full-time ministry. One of the pivotal moments during this memorable season was with an introduction to international speaker and best-selling author, Dr. Cindy Trimm. This life-changing introduction followed an appointed time of fellowship during a lovely telephone conversation with her. During of which time, the Beloved Lord also favored me to receive a prophetic word through Dr. Trimm whereby shifted my direction for my destiny.
The Scripture records in the Book of Ecclesiastes, Chapter 7 verse 8, Better is the end of a thing than the beginning thereof. As I reflect on the Word of the Lord from Dr. Trimm which suddenly opened a door to many prophets declaring the Lord’s will for my life, I recall it caused me to be quite concerned about my future in ministry and a life I had never desired. First, I must say, I had not the faith at the time for the Word of the Lord released through Dr. Trimm. Yet, thy Lord was most faithful to giveth me faith for significant projects I was charged by Him to steward in what was a time of change and waiting on Him.
In the winter of 2011, the Lord Jesus was most gracious to blow the horn of oil over me as I entereth into the prelude-to-destiny season. It became the season of testing, trials and a new level of warring in intercession for the manifestations of the Lord’s will for me. Ofttimes, the Word of the Lord concerning the new ministry tried me and continued until a Word came to pass one-by one and year-by-year. Our Blessed Lord is surely gracious and kind.
I remaineth in awe of the prophetic dreams the Blessed Holy Spirit continue to give to His Children to reveal His will for them to serve the Risen Lord Jesus in serving with this ministry. I want to encourage you to continue to be patient with the Word of the Lord that may be given to you in your dreams; the Lord shall establish His Word to you whom are devoted to His fear.
Blessing, and glory, and wisdom, and thanksgiving, and honour, and power, and might, be unto our God for ever and ever. Amen.
One of my most favorite clothing are colorful socks! Ofttimes when I am resting in my home, I will select a pair of socks whereby remind me of Heaven or an encouragement that I may have received from thy Lord Jesus. This is certainly why it’s no surprise the ministry’s recent partnership caused me to leap with joy!
The Blessed Lord has favored the ministry with a young man named, John and his father whom are owners of John’s Crazy Socks. John’s Crazy Socks is located in my former hometown of New York and is one of the world’s largest sock companies.
I pray you will help us with our fundraising for the orphans by just purchasing a pair of happy socks. Shop for you and your family’s happy socks at www.johnscrazysocks.com and use charity code FG-ECM21 at checkout to receive a free gift of mystery socks with your purchase.
In the Scriptures, we most delight in the Feast of the Word as we read of the Earthly Ministry of our Blessed Master. The Holy Bible records of our Beloved Lord rejoicing and delighting in Intimacy with His Disciples and Followers teaching in parables and preaching the Kingdom of God. It is the Heart of my Friend and Beloved One, the Lord Jesus whereby I have been bestowed grace to teach and preach in this miracle ministry.
It is my prayer you will sit at the Master’s Feet (as our Foremother, Mary unwavering love for thy Lord encouraged us) and Feast on the teachings which are now available on my new website www.ApostleTonya.org.
Also, I am most honored to celebrate the Lord Jesus with the launch of GLORIFY HIM! Be glorified in the Earth, O God!
Merciful Father, we enter into Your gates with thanksgiving and Your Courts with praise. Lord of Hosts we reverence You and bless Your Holy Magnificent Name. We thank You for Your only Begotten Son, our Beloved Lord Jesus whom You hath highly exalted and given a Name which is above every Name. Righteous Father, we thank You for our Master’s Precious Blood and according to the First Book of John, Chapter One verse Nine: we confess our sins to You and decree the Blood of Yeshua is our Hedge of Protection as it is recorded in Job 1:10.
Father, we bless You and thank You for the Blessed Holy Spirit whom guides us to all truth. Holy Spirit, we bless You for Your faithfulness to revealeth unto Your Children the deep things of God in our family’s bloodline. And, Wonderful Lord that Hearest prayer in Your lovingkindness we beseech You to incline thine Ear to our petition and thank You for turning not away our prayer and mercy from us.
Heavenly Father, in the Book of Exodus, Chapter 34 verse 14 it is recorded that You whose Name is Jealous, is a Jealous God. In Exodus 20:5, it is written: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate Me. Most Glorious Father, we beseech You for Your mercy to forgive the iniquities of the generations in our family who have not hearkened unto Your Voice to obey Your commandments. Holy One of Israel, we plea for You to forgive our family for our idolatry and exalting other gods before You according to Exodus 20:3-5.
Holy One, now we crieth out to You to forgive the sins of our family whom have robbed You in tithes and offerings according to Your commandments in Malachi 3:8.
Great Architect and Engineer of our lives, we plea with You to forgive our family for touching and removing landmarks, territories and properties whereby were not ours. Father, forgive us for causing the rising up and building of which You Cursed and Destroyed according to Joshua 6:26 and Deuteronomy 27:17. Amen.
God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, we put You into remembrance of Your Word recorded in the Book of Galatians, Chapter 3 verse 13: Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree.
Holy Father, forgive the sins in our family that has caused a curse of chronic sicknesses upon us. I revoke the curse and declare we are set free from the bondage of sicknesses and declare You are the Lord that healeth thee.
In the Name of Yeshua, I revoke the curse in my family’s bloodline because of disobedience to You Father.I decree and declare we shall obey Your voice Lord God and keep Your commandments. I decree Deuteronomy Chapter 28 verses 1 through 4 over my family. I reverse the curse of poverty and declare my family are faithful tithers. I decree we shall be strong as we walk into territories and good land that flow with milk and honey for Your glory.
I declare whom the Son set free is free indeed; and I thank You Lord God for my freedom and your mercy. I declare the injustice end and loose fruitfulness. In Jesus Name, Amen.
And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the Lord that healeth thee. Exodus 15:26
Thy Lord Jesus was most merciful to allow me to overcome a season of Job wherefore I entered for the Lord’s glory. Most gloriously, as I walked quietly through the valley of afflictions in my body, the Holy Spirit was faithful to continue to bestow upon me greater grace. I must say, it was a realm of great faith wherefore I was graced to walk to believe thy Healer for the blessed manifestation of miracles. Mark 11:23-24
As I waited patiently for the Master to heal, I rested in His Bosom worshipping along with the most glorious, holy hymns. And during such time, the Blessed Comforter was faithful to encourage me with His promise to heal me. This encouragement was surely plenteous from the Lord and it provided the strength for me to continue to buildeth my faith. Thy Lord in His lovingkindness also led me during this trial to incline my ear to the pure teachings on healing from the late Reverend Kenneth E. Hagin. Romans 10:17
I giveth the Lord the praise for His grace was surely sufficient for me to continue to prepare for my new ministry with afflictions.
Most marvelously, at night, I delighted in thy Majesty listening to the blessed Book of Psalms ofttimes with expectation to receive a miracle as I slept. Throughout the day, I was disciplined by thy Lord to write scriptures on index cards and in notebooks. Consequently, as a young girl, I discovered joy in writing and recording Bible Verses during my fellowship with the Lord God.
Dear ones, remember it is the Armor of God, the Sword of the Spirit wherefore remind us of the report of thy Lord whenever the enemy should attempt to intimidate or govern your emotions with fear and words of defeat. I want to encourage those of you whom are seeking thy Lord for healing to guard your ear gates from the enemy and trust in our Beloved Lord Jesus to heal you.
In the Book of Luke, Chapter 8, verses 43 and 44 the Scripture reads:
And a woman having an issue of blood twelve years, which had spent all her living upon physicians, neither could be healed of any,came behind him, and touched the border of his garment: and immediately her issue of blood stanched.
In this powerful story of faith, we read of the shame and affliction whereby tarried for twelve years in the body of the woman with the issue of blood. Let us be most encouraged from this Foremother of faith who received healing for her body and soul because of her faith-filled touch on the Border of thy Lord’s Garment.
Beloved, may I be your encourager today? Stand and continue to offer the sacrifices of righteousness, and put your trust in the LORD. Be fervent in prayer until you have received His answer to healeth you. Amen.
Scriptures for Healing
So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
And said, If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God, and wilt do that which is right in his sight, and wilt give ear to his commandments, and keep all his statutes, I will put none of these diseases upon thee, which I have brought upon the Egyptians: for I am the Lord that healeth thee.
But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings; and ye shall go forth, and grow up as calves of the stall.
How God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Ghost and with power: who went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil; for God was with him.
And Jesus went about all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues, and preaching the gospel of the kingdom, and healing every sickness and every disease among the people.
In the midst of the street of it, and on either side of the river, was there the tree of life, which bare twelve manner of fruits, and yielded her fruit every month: and the leaves of the tree were for the healing of the nations.
But that ye may know that the Son of man hath power on earth to forgive sins, (then saith he to the sick of the palsy,) Arise, take up thy bed, and go unto thine house.And he arose, and departed to his house.
And he cometh to Bethsaida; and they bring a blind man unto him, and besought him to touch him.And he took the blind man by the hand, and led him out of the town; and when he had spit on his eyes, and put his hands upon him, he asked him if he saw ought.And he looked up, and said, I see men as trees, walking.
And there came a leper to him, beseeching him, and kneeling down to him, and saying unto him, If thou wilt, thou canst make me clean.And Jesus, moved with compassion, put forth his hand, and touched him, and saith unto him, I will; be thou clean.And as soon as he had spoken, immediately the leprosy departed from him, and he was cleansed.
I will extol thee, my God, O king; and I will bless thy name for ever and ever. Every day will I bless thee; and I will praise thy name for ever and ever. Psalm 145:1-2
As Children of the Blessed Lord Jesus we are most blessed to receive an invitation from the Master to pursue and delight in Him. Psalm 37:4 And, how marvelously does the Spirit of God lead us into this intimacy? The Comforter may lead us as we are communing with Him, reading the Holy Bible, in praise and worship or dancing for thy Lord. These acts of worship will open our hearts and causeth sensitivity in our spirit to hear God’s still small voice. It is in our intimacy with thy Lord God He is faithful to speak to His Children, the apples of His Blessed Eyes.
Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth. Psalm 46:10
Ofttimes, my brethren desire to know how may you enter into a realm with thy Lord in consecration and devotion whereby you forsake your father, mother and children. I may answer that it is by the Lord’s grace and His love that He has given to us for Him. First John, Chapter 4:19 reminds us of this: “We love him, because he first loved us.”
Beloved, this love given to us for the Lord must continue to burn in our hearts for Him. If the Father bestow the blessing of a marriage union to you; you must continue to love the Lord more than these. The love for thy Lord in our hearts is to remain pure and reserved for Him alone. Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord? or who shall stand in his holy place? He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. Psalm 24:3-4
Ofttimes, the Book of Isaiah is our reference to study and understand the Character of our Father God. Yet, most often, I am led by the Beloved Holy Spirit to rest in Him and read about the Cross. Every blessed time, I open the pages of the Holy Bible; it is with expectation I will hear the Master’s Voice and be favored to read His Love Letter written to me.
As the deer pants for the water brooks, So pants my soul for You, O God. Psalm 42:1
As the Bride of Christ, our hearts must certainly be intentional in our devotional time with our Beloved Holy One. May I encourage you to listen to anointed soaking music and the audio Bible when preparing for communion with thy Lord. Surely, the Lord Jesus honor our preparation for the intimate time we desire to spend with Him. This honor for the Lord in preparing for our fellowship with Him must precede His Holy Presence.
As you begin your fellowship time, why don’t you begin with declarations of who the Lord God is in the Book of Psalms. I most adore reading what the Psalmist David wrote in Psalm 29:2: Give unto the Lord the glory due his name; worship the Lord in the beauty of holiness.
It is in this most Holy time of intimacy with thy Lord He will respond to your love and adoration for Him in His Blessed Voice. Delight in the King of Glory!
Scriptures on Hearing the Voice of God
Call unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest not.
My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me:
So then faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
He that is of God heareth God’s words: ye therefore hear them not, because ye are not of God.
Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.
I will instruct thee and teach thee in the way which thou shalt go: I will guide thee with mine eye.

We read throughout the Bible, the Spirit of God speaketh to give His Children instructions, guidance, answers in our personal lives, marriages, ministries, churches and businesses. The Holy Spirit is also most faithful to speak and giveth His intercessors strategies to destroy the enemy plans against us as we engage in spiritual warfare. Dear ones, be still and wait on the Lord.
Who is like unto thee, O Lord, among the gods? who is like thee, glorious in holiness, fearful in praises, doing wonders? Exodus 15:11
Quite a few years ago, the Blessed Holy Spirit led me to began to keep a War Binder for His glory. The Binder is where I have safely recorded secrets whereby thy Lord has entrusted to me to steward, notes to our Beautiful Lord Jesus, prayer assignments and victory reports. Ofttimes my Binder has been a place where I am led to revisit past victories to receive encouragement from thy Lord. I am most honored to provide instructions on How to War and How to Create Your own War Binder whereby I have received from the Holy Spirit who has faithfully bestowed upon me strength and teacheth my hands to war and my fingers to fight.
It is my prayer as you are faithful to intercede the Lion of Judah will continue to grace you with strength to pray until your assignments are finished.
But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ. 1 Corinthians 15:57
How to War
Warriors, you must be certain to be clothed in the garment of humility before entering the enemy’s terrain to war. As it is written in the First Book of Peter, chapter five verse five:
Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble.
The most beautiful attribute and grace as Children of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the God of our fathers is humility. When we examine our Lord’s Heart of Service our eyes of understanding are opened to perceive His desire for His Children to acquire a servant and humble heart.
Let us remember, John 13:5, where we read:
After that He poureth water into a basin, and began to wash the disciples feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith He was girded.
Our Blessed Savior also expounded to Peter about humility as written in the Gospel of John 13:8: Peter saith unto him, Thou shalt never wash my feet. Jesus answered him, If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with me.
And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus. Ephesians 2:6
As a warrior, you must fight seated in Heavenly Places. Listen to your favorite praise music as you dance and praise the King of Glory just as King David. I encourage you to release your praise to Jehovah Gibbor to execute vengeance upon the heathen and punishments upon the people; to bind their kings with chains, and their nobles with fetters of iron; to execute upon them the judgment written: this honour have all his saints. Psalm 149.
Now, let’s start with creating your War Binder!
Creating your War Binder
Purchase a three-ring clear view Binder from your favorite office supply store, e.g., Office Max, or Staples. Make sure the Binder says: “Clear View Binder” on the front or side of the Binder. You want to be sure to include a personalized cover for your War Binder. If you find it challenging envisioning a cover for your War Binder ask the Holy Spirit to bestow you with His vision. He will answer you!
Before we continue on to the next step, let’s pray and ask the Holy Spirit how would He like your War Binder interior to be created.
Blessed Holy Spirit, we thank You for Your Presence. Lord, we ask You to continue to be our guide as we create this War Binder for Your glory. Helper, we ask You to help us to bring order to our prayer assignments with the use of this War Binder. Grace us to be faithful and trustworthy with the assignments You have graciously given to us to steward in this Earth Realm. We decree Matthew 6:9-13 over our prayer assignments. Lord, thank you for guiding us as we create it to give you the glory! In Jesus Name, Amen.
I thought it would also be helpful to you if I provided a sample of what tabs are included in my War Binder to further help to be a guideline as you create your own.
What the interior of my War Binder may consist of:
4. Listing of each of the above assignments would have their own respective tab.
5. Victory: Answered Prayers
Paper: Regular 8 x 11 Loose-leaf paper is what I would suggest you use for your writing.
There are some online retailers that sell blank inserts that can be used for a prayer journal and war binders which you may find more useful. However, I have included this suggestion to provide you with a sample that would best fit general prayer assignments.
There you have it; your war binder!
I pray our Beloved Lord Jesus anointeth your head with oil and your cup runneth over as you create your War Binder and Journal for His Glory. For of Him, and through Him, and to Him, are all things: to whom be glory for ever. Amen.
