The Walls of Fire

By Apostle Tonya

Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.  Who is this King of glory?  The Lord strong and mighty, the Lord mighty in battle.  Psalms 24:7-8

Over the years, I have often pondered on the King of Glory choosing to rest His glory on His Disciple, Apostle Peter wherefore the shadow of him would be used to heal.  Acts 5:15-16. 

During a long season of sitting at thy Lord Jesus’ Feet, He was most faithful to answer me and give revelation on how Peter’s shadow was used to perform the great miracles recorded in the Scriptures.  I marveled as the Holy Spirit in His lovingkindness revealed the secret to me:  Peter had acquired a pure heart and thereby his shadow could host the glory of the Lord to heal.  

The suffering the Apostle endured after the Ascension of our Blessed Lord Jesus must have produced a purity of soul.  For it is a refined vessel who walks with Adonai, the Consuming Fire. 

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.  Psalms 24:3-4

In the Book of John, Chapter 14, verse 12, the Blessed Master says:  He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.  This is what the Apostle Peter demonstrated in his walk during his Earthly ministry of miracles, signs, wonders and intercession.  As you remember, when Peter was visiting Lydda after praying for Aeneas, a most beloved woman who gave alms named Dorcas (Tabitha) died from an unknown sickness.  Peter was summoned to leave Lydda for Joppa to pray for the deceased woman whose body had already been washed.  There was knowledge of the fire and glory of thy Lord God that rested on Peter in Joppa.  The Bible records that the Apostle Peter was a man of prayer.  I gather the women who wept for Dorcas after her death also prayed for her to recover from this sickness.  In His faithfulness, the Blessed One would use His son, Peter’s intercession to be glorified in her resurrection.

The dimension of prayer that the Holy Spirit opened for Peter was the glory realm. Apostle Peter had dominion and authority to command Dorcas’ spirit and life to return back into her body.  This resurrection power of the Lord Jesus most marvelously resurrected Tabitha from the dead.  Surely it was our Great Architect and Father seated on His Throne which spoke through His vessel, Peter, “Tabitha, Arise!”  Amen.

Happy New Year!

By Apostle Tonya

Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and cometh down from the Father of lights, with whom is no variableness, neither shadow of turning. James 1:17

Dearest Friends, I declare the Blessed One will giveth you His grace to release the trauma the Church has experienced from the pandemic of 2020.  May the Blessed Comforter cause you to forget those things which are behind you and reach forth unto those things which our Father of Glory has set before you. In Jesus’ Name, Amen.

Dream about the Risen Lord

By Apostle Tonya

He that hath my commandments, and keepeth them, he it is that loveth me: and he that loveth me shall be loved of my Father, and I will love him, and will manifest myself to him.  John 14:21

For a long season, the Blessed Lord Jesus has been gracious to giveth me dreams of Him appearing to me reenacting the time He walked the Earth during His Ministry, Death and Resurrection.  

The Lord Jesus, the Son of God visited me shortly after I had been resting in Him. In this most blessed dream, I saw the Risen Lord standing outside of His Empty Tomb.  The King of Glory was standing near the opening of the Tomb clothed in a Robe.  The Lord’s Face was Beautiful; it had no bruising or scars. The Skin covering the Lord’s Countenance in this dream resembled that of a fetus of 20 weeks in his mother’s womb.  I saw the Lord’s Features most profound in this appearance of Him and His Hair was parted in the middle.  

Then, as I looked down at the ground I saw whom I knew in my spirit to be Mary of Magdala.  Mary Magdalene was bowed down at the Master’s Feet.  The Blessed One’s Feet was revealed to me quite vividly.  Amen. 

Friends, May you and your family delight in the Blessed Lord Jesus as we celebrate His Birth this Christmas.  

O Come, Let Us Adore Him!

Midnight Praise and Power

By Apostle Tonya

At midnight I will rise to give thanks unto thee because of thy righteous judgments. Psalm 119:62

One of the most well-quoted Scriptures in the Holy Bible on the power of praise unto the Lord Jesus is written in the Book of Acts, Chapter 16, verses 25 and 26:

And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God:  and the prisoners heard them.  And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken:  and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one’s bands were loosed.  

This Scripture most powerfully records at midnight when Paul and Silas praised thy Lord their praise released Angels to come for their words. The weapon of praise of these two men greatly shook the Earth, bound the enemy, open doors and set them free. 

Midnight which begins the third watch of prayer is an hour of deliverance. Chetsiy, the Hebrew word for midnight is defined in the Strong’s Concordance as midst, middle and midnight.  The Lion of Judah, our Deliverer strategically appointed the midnight hour to set the captives free.  This set time when we arise to give the Holy One of Israel thanks will annihilate the enemy’s works against us.  

As Children who giveth praise, glory and honor with our righteous lips to Jehovah Gibbor, the Man of War, we simultaneously destroy demonic assignments sent against us to place us in bondage.  The righteous is bold as a lion and we must walk in authority and dominion and release the high praises of the Lord when we are in spiritual war.  

The Lord God who causes wars to cease taketh pleasure in our praises unto Him and will declare our warfare is over.  Amen. 

Let the high praises of God be in their mouth, and a two-edged sword in their hand; 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. Praise ye the Lord. Psalm 149:6-9

7 Scriptures to Pray at Midnight 

Acts 16:25-26

And at midnight Paul and Silas prayed, and sang praises unto God:  and the prisoners heard them. And suddenly there was a great earthquake, so that the foundations of the prison were shaken:  and immediately all the doors were opened, and every one’s bands were loosed.  

Matthew 25:6

And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him.

Acts 20:7

And upon the first day of the week, when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached unto them, ready to depart on the morrow; and continued his speech until midnight.

And it came to pass at midnight, that the man was afraid, and turned himself:  and, behold, a woman lay at his feet. 

Judges 16:3

And Samson lay til midnight, and arose at midnight, and took the doors of the gate of the city, and the two posts, and went away with them, bar and all, and put them upon his shoulders, and carried them up to the top of an Hill that is before Hebron.

The Mustard Seed

By Apostle Tonya

Last week, I was honored to receive an invitation to join the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) for The Mustard Seed Series: Working Together to End Involuntary Homelessness. It was certainly a surprise for me to see the host of this virtual event, a most humble man, Dr. Benjamin S. Carson, Secretary of Housing and Urban Development.

During the meeting, Secretary Ben Carson highlighted the mustard seed faith of Pastor Jake Medcalf of Castro Valley, California.  In Pastor Jake’s presentation, he recounted the unexpected visit of a homeless man who had sought the help of the church during a rainstorm while he (Pastor Jake) worked in his church office.  Later, after the man departed, thy Lord led Pastor Jake to walk around the land of the church property and guided him to use its parking lot to build temporary homes for the homeless.  This encounter with the Lord would ultimately birth “The Tiny Project”!  What an amazing testimony it was for me to hear that within 18 months through The Tiny Project the church secured builders to complete six lovely homes surrounding its sanctuary for the homeless.

The HUD reports that involuntary homelessness is a current crisis in the Body of Christ.  It was quite startling for me to learn many believers have passed away before their time as a result of circumstances in their lives which tragically forced them to live outdoors.  

I want to encourage the Body of Christ, leaders, in particular, to serve the homeless within your churches and ministries.  Surely there must be more projects birthed within the Body such as The Tiny Project.  We must do our part to help end homelessness with our brethren.   Matthew 25:37-40.

Prophetic Dreams about Magic and Cookie Johnson and their son, EJ

By Apostle Tonya

For a great length of time, thy Blessed Lord has graced me with prophetic dreams and most recently, visions about Magic and Cookie Johnson. The Lord has ofttimes included their son, EJ in the visions.

Years ago, I became quite moved as I read about the heart of Cookie Johnson, a woman of faith. It was both her perseverance and faith to wait on love that moved my heart the most. The storm that followed weeks after her marriage to Magic Johnson shifted when Cookie’s testimony was shared that both she and her unborn baby (EJ Johnson) were not afflicted by the disease that infected her husband. This marvelous testimony held by her remain a glorious reminder of the goodness of our Lord Jesus. Amen.

During the past week, as thy Lord continued to visit me with an increase of visions of the family, particularly of EJ, I felt the Lord pressing upon me to release this Word. The Lord says that there will be news to come about EJ Johnson; concerning his life.

The Birth of Destiny

By Apostle Tonya

And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men. Luke 2: 13-14

I most adore reading about the Birth of the King of Glory.  In the Book of Luke 2:10-11, we read with such great enthusiasm the Angel bringing good tidings to the Wise Men: Christ the Lord was Born.  

As the Wise Men journeyed to honor our Savior there appeared a glorious Sign from Heaven:  The Lord’s Star shone brightly and followed them.  When the Wise Men saw the Blessed One; Born most humbly in a manger they fell down and worshipped Him and presented unto Him gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.

The Holy Scripture records during the time of the Birth of the Lord there was great warfare.  Most notably, we read of King Herod who learned of a Baby Boy who had been Born a King.  Herod inquired of His whereabouts to the Wise Men and was full of wroth at them for their mockery and withholding of where the Baby Jesus was hidden.  This provoked King Herod to issue and carry out that certain Decree in Bethlehem in his attempt to destroy Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Matthew 2

There is great celestial activity surrounding a leader when he or she is born, the Lord’s ministries, and to those who are called to steward weighty assignments from Heaven.  This Presence is ofttimes how the enemy initiates his plan to destroy ministries and assignments which are birthed in the Earth.  In Job 1:7, we read one of the most profound revelations of satan’s ability to obtain information to destroy us.  When Jehovah God asked satan, “Whence comest thou?” he answered:  “To and fro in the Earth…”  Dear ones, The Accuser presents his case with information from the Earth day and night in the Court of Heaven.  Revelation 12:10

In the splendor and glory of this season of miracles, let us stay in the position of reverencing and obeying the Lord God.  I want to encourage you to be fervent in prayer with your prophetic dreams.  Be of great faith and wage warfare with the meaningful prophetic words thy Lord has given to you from His prophets. Remember that our foremother, Sarah waited for her promise and was 90-years-old when she gave birth to her son, Isaac.  

Surely the One enthroned in Heaven shall laugh.  Amen.

Prophetic Dream about Praise in the White House

By Apostle Tonya

This past October, I came across a most glorious video on YouTube of our Risen Lord being exalted. The brief video revealed a recent time where a small group of White House staff had gathered in a certain room to worship thy Lord Jesus.  As I fastened my eyes on the Lord’s Children while they praised Him I was moved with tears.  Thereafter, I asked the Blessed Holy Spirit about the delighting of Jesus in the White House.  I was in awe as I received His response in my heart:  joy with a smile from the Lord that it was real.  Our Beloved Lord Jesus was being exalted in the White House!

I am most grateful for the Blessed Lord God to grace me with a special dream days before Thanksgiving about the White House.  In this dream, I was in a living room with a few of my relatives who remain living in my native, New York. Suddenly, I began to initiate a conversation with my relatives about the Presidential Election and the Trump Administration.  There followed a somberness in the living room.  Then, I continued our conversation with such excitement and said to my family: “They have praise parties in the White House!”

Blessed is the nation whose God is the Lord; and the people whom he hath chosen for his own inheritance. Psalm 33:12

Prophetic Dreams about Major Television Networks

By Apostle Tonya

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.  John 16:13

During the past week, the Blessed Holy Spirit has faithfully graced me with dreams showing that there will be a potential change in the major television networks.   

In these dreams, thy Lord revealed powerful clues which included the timing of change occurring with at least two of the major networks. 

The Lord also graced me with a vision.  In this vision, He revealed what is to come:  

I saw the person who will launch their own major television network.  He was sitting on a television set with Oprah Winfrey.

Energize Your Faith

By Apostle Tonya

One of the most pivotal moments which increased a great hunger for intercession happened to me nearly a decade ago when the Blessed Holy Spirit led me to a book on prayer and fasting.  This small book catapulted me into a season of seeking our Lord in shut-in prayer.  The book, rich in testimonials, recounted a story that ofttimes I have shared with staff and would like to share with you. 
The leader testified of a most profound story of faith during a service whereby the Lord sent them to minister the Gospel.  On the first night of the healing service, a blind elderly woman walked to the altar seeking prayer for a miracle of eyesight. Yet, she was still not able to see.  For the next few nights, the elderly woman gently walked the path of faith into the Lord’s House seeking her eyes to be opened and each night she left the altar without her miracle.  It was on the last night as she walked in those faith-filled shoes that the woman finally received a miracle.  Our Blessed Healer was faithful to openeth her eyes!  Matthew 11:5

Ofttimes while waiting on the Lord to answer our prayers; the enemy will attack our faith by subtly placing seeds of doubt in our thoughts.  We must resist him and every word contrary to the Blessed Word of God.  I encourage you to remember your authority and cast down imaginations and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God and bring into captivity every thought to the obedience of the Lord Jesus.  2 Corinthians 10:5

Be faithful with your fellowship time with the Lord Jesus.  Spend time with our Risen Lord reading the Scriptures to Him out-loud daily.  In His Blessed Presence, you will be filled with such joy and confidence.  I most cherish this special time with my Beloved, the Lamb of God. 

Friends, if you are in the waiting area for healing and manifestation of the promises of thy Lord; I encourage you to read these scriptures daily to energize your faith.  

9 Scriptures to Energize Your Faith 

And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you. Matthew 17:20

Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Hebrews 11:1

But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him. Hebrews 11:6

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. Luke 8:43-44

Then said Martha unto Jesus, Lord, if thou hadst been here, my brother had not died.  But I know, that even now, whatsoever thou wilt ask of God, God will give it thee. John 11:21-22

But Peter put them all forth, and kneeled down, and prayed; and turning him to the body said, Tabitha, arise. And she opened her eyes: and when she saw Peter, she sat up.  And he gave her his hand, and lifted her up, and when he had called the saints and widows, presented her alive. Acts 9:40-41

I pray the Father of Glory fulfill all your petitions.  Amen.
