The Lovingkindness of God

By Apostle Tonya

How excellent is thy lovingkindness, O God! Therefore the children of men put their trust under the shadow of thy wings. Psalm 36:7

Most recently, I was sent by thy Lord to travel to a certain place.  Before I embarked on this travel, I was in the midst of warfare whereby had become a distraction for assignments against me that were time-released.  For this trip would be life changing; not only for me, but for others.  Moments after my feet touched the soil on this land; there the enemy waited for his defeat.

During our time of fellowship, the Comforter began to bring to my remembrance a vision He had graciously bestowed upon me just a few days earlier.  In the vision, I was given specific instruction from thy Lord to check-in to a certain hotel a few miles away from my accommodations.  Upon my arrival at this hotel, I was met with such kindness with a hotel representative.  It had only been a few moments after my arrival before I would see the Lord Jesus use the employee to give me comfort.  

Ofttimes, when the Lord reveal such a warning as He had for me to leave a place; a glorious revelation will come forth.  For quite some time, I had been contending against a spirit of dishonor that was attacking my ministry.  This became a concern for the Lord God who is faithful to perfect what concerns us.  

The Lord will perfect that which concerneth me:  thy mercy, O Lord, endureth forever.. Psalm 138:8

In this sent place, there would come to be a small incident with my reservations.  As I waited to be accommodated, I meditated on the will of the Lord for me at the hotel while Angels that were surrounding me had increased.  Moments later, the hotel representative returned and offered me a dessert.  Thereafter, the representative escorted me from a small waiting area to a luxurious seating area.   In His lovingkindness, the Lord used the representative to continue to serve me in what was reminiscent of a scene from a classic movie; with mid-western hospitality and all that reminded me of Heaven.

The Beautiful Lord using the kindness of a stranger to attend to me would move my heart to tears.  Then, I was safely escorted to my room which was prepared for me by Heaven.  

The Lord is kind.  I encourage you to walk in this blessed character of Jehovah Tsidkenu with the Body of Christ and your families.  Amen.

For Such a Time as This

By Apostle Tonya

Now it came to pass on the third day, that Esther put on her royal apparel, and stood in the inner court of the king’s house, over against the king’s house: and the king sat upon his royal throne in the royal house, over against the gate of the house. And it was so, when the king saw Esther the queen standing in the court, that she obtained favour in his sight: and the king held out to Esther the golden sceptre that was in his hand. So Esther drew near, and touched the top of the sceptre. Esther 5:1-2

Jehovah Tsidkenu, our Righteous Father, we shall praise Your Magnificent Name with a new song, and will magnify You with thanksgiving. We thank You that You are our Alpha and Omega, Author and Finisher, the Great Architecture and Engineer of our lives.

Father of Glory, we come boldly before the throne of grace to beseech You to clothe us in the new. Holy One, we ask for Heaven’s Royal garments. We pray also for the Precious Holy Spirit to giveth us favor and good courage. In the Blessed Name of Your Son, Jesus Christ, Amen.

God’s Creation Glory

By Apostle Tonya

And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was. John 17:5

O Father of Glory, as it is written in the Book of John, Chapter 17 verse 5, the Lord Jesus prayed with His Disciples that You would glorify Him with the glory our Lord had with thee before the world was formed. Father, we thank You for glorifying thyself in us with the same Creation glory; for You are the same God yesterday, today and forever. Father, I decree and declare the manifestation of creative miracles of weight loss and 20/20 vision come upon Your Children. Blessed Father, we bless and thank You for Your miracles.

We adore You O God! Be glorified in us O God!  In the Name of our Beloved Lord Jesus, Amen.

Intimacy with the Lord Jesus

By Apostle Tonya

So when they had dined, Jesus saith to Simon Peter, Simon, son of Jonas, lovest thou me more than these? He saith unto him, Yea, Lord; thou knowest that I love thee.  He saith unto him, Feed my lambs.  John 21:15

Over ten years ago, while mourning the passing of a loved one; thy Lord increased His Presence in my life.  As I became acquainted with grief, sweetly, my Beloved Jesus pursued and pulled me out of a place of darkness. 

As the deer pants for the water brooks, so pants my soul for You, O God. My soul thrists for God, for the living God. When shall I come and appear before God?   Psalm 42:1-2

It was in the cleft of the rock that I remained.  The Comforter gave me strength to begin to lift the curtains from a time of tarrying in the loss and monument of the past. The river of tears and the sound of mourning were replaced. The Lamb of God’s glorious presence suddenly began to abode in my two-story home.  Ofttimes, as I welcomed guests they were immediately overcome with His Blessed Presence.  The Father, the Great Architecture of our lives lovingly ushered me into a new story with the release of His prophets whom were sent to give me a glimpse of what was to come.  Amos 3:7. Thereafter, the Lord Jesus kept His promise to come as written throughout the Holy Scriptures.  For some of my spiritual children and to a dear family member, the Lord Jesus Christ appeared to them while they were at my home. The King had come!  

Jesus answered and said unto him, If a man love me, he will keep my words: and my Father will love him, and we will come unto him, and make our abode with him.  John 14:23 

My late mother, well-beloved, had an extraordinary testimony of the Risen Lord visiting her in His Glorified Body after her baptism at nine-years old.  Thy Lord asked something of His Young Daughter and she gave Her Master the answer.  Thereafter, He bestowed a most glorious gift to her:  she became His Friend and He faithfully protected her throughout her special life.  

Many people wonder how is it that the Lord dwelleth with me.  I can only say to you during a season of unspeakable grief with the sudden passing of my mother; the Lord, her Best Friend, chose to prepare me to become His also.  

For me, there is no place more comfortable than spending time with the Lord Jesus, our Rose of Sharon.  His Majesty is heavenly beautiful!  Each marvelous time our Savior has visited me, He has left a gift from Heaven.  Oh, how I love Him!  

It is most precious to me; the Friendship with thy Lord for which such great suffering I have endured.  And, it is not easy for me to share my love for our Beloved Lord here. Yet, He has asked this of me.  Be glorified O Lord!   

I am Thine, Lord Jesus.  Amen. 

The Royal Decree

By Apostle Tonya

Then the king returned out of the palace garden into the place of the banquet of wine; and Haman was fallen upon the bed whereon Esther was.  Then said the king, Will he force the queen also before me in the house?  As the word went out of the king’s mouth, they covered Haman’s face.  And Harbonah, one of the chamberlains, said before the king, Behold also, the gallows fifty cubits high, which Haman had made for Mordecai, who spoken good for the king, standeth in the house of Haman.  Then the king said, Hang him thereon.  Esther 7:8-9

Father of Glory, together we ascribe to thee the glory due Your Name and worship You O Lord in the splendor of Your Holiness.  For a day in thy Courts is better than a thousand.  O God, we would rather be a doorkeeper in Your House than to dwell in the tents of wickedness.

Blessed Father, we thank You for the authority that You in Your goodness have given to us to reign with the King of the Kings and Lord of Lords.  In the Name of Your Son, our Beloved Lord Jesus, we exercise dominion over spiritual wickedness in high places.  We put You in remembrance of Your Word in the Book of Job, Chapter 22, verse 28:  “Thou shalt also decree a thing, and it shall be established unto thee and the light shall shine upon thy ways.”  Jehovah Gibbor, we decree and declare that the spirit of Haman sent by the enemy to dethrone Your daughters and sons from their kingly positions is destroyed and hung on the gallows.  We decree its plans against us have been overruled by the King of Glory.  We decree Angels have come for our words according to Daniel 10:12.

We decree thy Kingdom come.  Thy will be done in Earth as it is in Heaven, in the Name of Yeshua HaMashiach, Amen.

We bless You Lord for sending warring Angels to hide and fight for us as we delight in Your Blessed Presence. We thank You King of Glory for being our Shield and for Your Precious Blood that remaineth a hedge of protection for us as written in Job 1:10. Amen.

12 Encouraging Bible Verses for These Times

By Apostle Tonya

Quiet walks remain a time where I have the most precious conversations with thy Lord. Back in 2016, when I lived in my native, New York I experienced such joy brisk walking. For three times a week, I set out on a path of walking with the Blessed Lord. Ofttimes, I was led by Him to rest at the Grand Army Plaza Library in Brooklyn which also held such fond memories of my childhood. The Comforter encouraged me during what had been a time of transition.  How grateful I am for the Lord’s Friendship.  

In the midst of the protests that continued to spread globally, I desired to take a short walk in the neighborhood.  The Lord is faithful to direct our paths.  Suddenly, I was standing nearly face-to-face with a deer.  I watched him as he stood in front of a marvelous landscape of trees; staring back at me.  Not wanting to forget this moment, I thought of capturing it; while I waited to see if he were going to move closer toward me. The gentle deer remained as I continued with my conversation with the Blessed Lord. 

As the deer pants for the water brooks, so pants my soul for You, O God.  Psalm 42:1

The Father speaks; we must be still and listen.  For me, it was a glorious moment knowing the Lord set my path; to speak to me through the deer who is a symbol of thirsting and longing for Him.  

As I sit to inscribe this letter of encouragement, I am near tears reflecting on the tender moments with the deer and the Father’s love for us.  It is my prayer as you delight in Him, you will meditate on these Scriptures and be strengthen.  Let us remain encouraged, no matter the storm, we must keep our eyes fastened on our Beloved Lord Jesus.  Our Lord is with us.  Amen.

Therefore I say unto you, what things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them.  And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought against any:  that your Father also which is in heaven may forgive you your trespasses.

Healing the Soul

By Apostle Tonya

For most of my adult life, I have thoroughly enjoyed interior decorating and design. When I purchased my first home, I spent nearly a year decorating it; it was my Heaven on Earth.  In times past, I noticed a pattern had developed with me: although my home was wonderfully decorated, there was a hidden area that often required my attention, my bedroom closet.  When I was most happiest; my closet was quite organized.  On the other hand, when I endured a life trial it immediately would affect how I maintained the bedroom closet.  Luke 8:17 

The Blessed Holy Spirit is ever-faithful to reveal areas in our lives that have caused trauma which our brains can block the memory of to protect itself.  In the most precious time of abiding with the Lord He will guide us to all truth and reveal hidden memories that have wounded us.  In His timing, many years later, the Lord was faithful to give me the revelation about my closet.  

One day, as I suddenly glanced at a bedroom closet with a few items that were not neatly put away thy Lord began to speak to me about the closet in my first home. The Lord Jesus revealed there were wounds in my soul from a trauma I experienced many years before the purchase of my first home that I had suppressed. 

Sometimes the hardest part of healing is facing the truth.  When we embrace why we were wounded the healing will then spring forth.  

As the Psalmist David said: 

For my soul is full of troubles, and my life draweth nigh unto the grave. I am counted with them that go down into the pit; I am like a man that hast no strength. Psalm 88:3-4.

I want to help you walk in complete freedom of childhood traumas, idols in the soul, sicknesses, rejection, grief and the trauma from the wounds caused by the Coronavirus.

During my long season of consecration, thy Lord began to faithfully teach me how to heal soul wounds.  He desires us to be in health and our soul to prospereth.  I invite you to register for my one-hour free teaching on “Healing the Soul”. 

In this teaching, you will learn:

  • How to bindeth the wounds
  • How to cancel assignments
  • How to release God’s glory into your soul  
  • And a teaching on the soul… 

“Healing the Soul” will be held on July 20th via Zoom (member ID information will be sent after registration).  After the teaching, I will be praying for healing.
