Discerning, Removing and Avoiding the Spirit of Divination (also known as the python spirit):

Now I am not trying to scare you, I am trying to prepare you for the public life with your ministry or calling. You must have this understanding so you know how to properly and effectively deal with it. It’s called a spirit of divination or “python” spirit.
I would not include it in this chapter if I did not think it was crucially important. I want you to be properly equipped. Jesus warned His disciples to be wise to these things.
As soon as you launch out into the public for the Kingdom there is a sneaky evil spirit that will try to mess with you.
You may even be dealing with it right now so let me teach you how to discern it and get rid of it. This spirit is very rampant in our society and we as leaders must be aware.
In 2 Corinthians 2:11 Paul said; “Lest satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.”
I want you to be welcoming of people who want to help you when you launch out in public, BUT you must also be wise that the enemy looks for a way in to stop you or hinder you through wrong relationships. He will try to send a person who is operating in this demonic spirit to infiltrate your inner circle and you must know how you discern this – the bigger the impact you will have for the Kingdom – the more this evil spirit tries to sneak in!
I want you to love people and I don’t want you to be paranoid at every person you meet that they might be operating with a spirit of divination – that’s why you must be careful to discern properly. I have had this spirit try to infiltrate my business and ministry at least three times! The more my ministry and name grew publicly the more it seemed this spirit was trying to attack. Two were women and one was a man. It is not gender specific!
Now please don’t be saying, “Gee, Annamarie if there is a chance I might get an attack from the enemy when I launch out in public with my ministry or purpose for the Kingdom, then I’m not gonna do it.”
Listen to me! You can get attacks and open a door to the enemy just sitting at home and watching the wrong shows on TV!
Your desire to be obedient to God and your calling for the Kingdom should be so passionate that you will not worry about this at all and I am going to equip you right now to discern it, destroy it and keep it away for good!
First, let’s get discernment on the evil Spirit of Divination…
There is a very deceptive spirit that has been operating in the world especially at this time and it’s an anti-christ spirit. A lot of people who you may know and many around us in society are under the deception of this spirit. It’s based in witchcraft and the occult and stems from idolatry. It’s been operating in all the 7 Mountains of Influence. One of the sneaky evil spirits that operate under the anti-christ spirit is the spirit of divination. It’s like a python and it targets those who are powerfully and boldly representing the Kingdom of God in these 7 mountains. The spirit of divination tends to target ministry leaders and those in ministry with a prophetic gifting. It sneaks in looking like it’s harmless and even flattering OR acts like a “copycat” then slowly works to squeeze you into shutting down and quitting.
Now, let’s reveal the Spirit of Divination also known as the Python Spirit …
The Apostle Paul dealt with this spirit early on in his ministry when he entered the Greek city of Philippi:
Acts 16:16-20
(KJV) “And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying; The same followed Paul and us, and cried, saying, These men are the servants of the most high God, which shew unto us the way of salvation. And this did she many days. But Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out the same hour. And when her masters saw that the hope of their gains was gone, they caught Paul and Silas, and drew them into the marketplace unto the rulers, And brought them to the magistrates, saying, These men, being Jews, do exceedingly trouble our city,”
The SPIRIT OF DIVINATION is someone that will placate you when they think things go their way and try to destroy you when it doesn’t. You would never know that they are if you were giving them everything they wanted. They expose themselves in different ways.
You have a mission to complete! A mission from God and cannot let anyone hinder that or try to distract that no matter who they are! This spirit has to be exposed early before it does too much damage.
You take authority over that spirit operating through them and you set boundaries with them. Even if they are “friends”. Some may even say they are “christians”. These are people with wicked spirits operating through them. Understand it’s not the person, it’s the spirit operating through them!
These are the Signs of the spirit of divination or “python” spirit operating in a person that wants to be around you and your ministry or your Kingdom purpose:
  • Gives you flattery in the beginning to pull you in – almost like a groupie or “I am your biggest fan”
  • Wants what you have but not willing to learn or work for it
  • “Acts” like they have the same gifting you have and begins to mimic you to pull your followers to them
  • Hogs up your time away from others
  • Begins to constantly pull attention to themselves in your public setting and away from your message for the Lord
  • Constantly telling you what you should do in your ministry and pushing you away from pursuing God’s guidance and they wanting to be your only ‘guide’
  • Squeezed feeling of pressure that comes on you after you have started listening to them or agreeing with them, you may even begin to experience shortness of breath, and difficulty swallowing
  • Wants you to do everything their way – gets easily hurt or offended
  • Works behind the scenes to pull people to “their side” to put pressure on you to do what they want
  • They focus on dividing you away from your people and your people away from you
  • May have been involved in witchcraft or new age practices and never got fully delivered (you will see the signs – on their social media – take the time to check them out and what they post)
  • In group settings, they are not eager to pray for anyone else’s issues – they want most of the prayer for themselves
  • Tries to prophesy over your followers and counter what God has spoke to you over them without your consent (if you have a prophetic ministry)
  • Usually avoids communion time, and any type of worship of Jesus – more drawn to the supernatural stuff
  • Trying to compare you and your ministry to what everyone else is doing – telling you should do that
  • Crying, weeping alot and using guilt to manipulate you, wants to have access to you even at night to pull you away from family
  • Usually a ‘loner’ type person. Has trouble with relationships has been through many churches
  • Focused on getting constant prophetic words and squeezing/pressuring you to give them every day to them – gets overly needy
  • Never carries out what you advise them to do – you see no fruit, just more drama
  • When they tire you out they try to act in your place, and influence your people and followers
  • Sometimes they act like a ‘prophet’ and giving false prophetic words that are coming from familiar spirits instead of the Holy Spirit
  • Tells you they have “angels” talking to them all the time but they do not have a relationship with the Holy Spirit
  • Thrives in constant drama and strife
  • Brags how they told-off church leaders, pastors or people of authority
  • Usually shows up at a time you are close to a breakthrough
  • When you try to use boundaries with them they get offended and accuse you of not being a loving Christian
  • They profess love for you, but are always questioning your message and your strategies (a person truly sent by God would resonate and support your message and respect you and your strategies.)
Understand the spirit of divination partners with the religious spirit and it will find others operating with a religious spirit to try and gang up on you and accuse you of ruining things for them, and not being caring or loving Christian if you call out their behavior. You must be careful to keep your emotions in check.
Observe all this wisely, stay calm and prepare to strike this down behind the scenes, do not get caught up is the drama around this person.
So what do you do about this situation? What if this person has embedded themselves in your life, business and ministry? How can you deal with this spirit and still love them? How do you discern this before it takes over and squeezes you until you are so distracted you cannot fully function for the Lord and your calling then your faith is struggling?
PLEASE LISTEN TO ME!
When you have faith, even as small as a mustard seed you don’t have to compromise ‘put up with’ anything or anybody that comes against your faith! Jesus Christ is the author and finisher of your faith only! What you do with your faith and calling in this life nobody has any right to try and change, attack, question, force their will, squeeze or twist it in any way!

 

  • GUARD AND PROTECT YOUR FAITH AND MISSION AT ALL COSTS!
  • KNOW NO WILL BUT THE FATHER’S FOR YOUR LIFE!
  • HIS WILL IS FOR YOU TO HAVE ALL THE PROMISES OF HIS WORD!
  • DO NOT LET THE ENEMY TOUCH YOUR PROMISES!
  • CRUSH THE ENEMY UNDER YOUR FEET!
Jesus gave you AUTHORITY to destroy and crush anything that would come against you!
“Listen carefully: I have given you authority [that you now possess] to tread on serpents and scorpions, and [the ability to exercise authority] over all the power of the enemy (satan); and nothing will [in any way] harm you.” – Luke 10:19 (AMP)
What did the Apostle Paul do? He took authority over the spirit of divination/python operating through the girl and commanded it to leave! He did not rebuke the girl, he rebuked the evil spirit.
Paul discerned it quickly and nipped it in the bud! How did Paul discern it? Read the scripture – the girl kept on pressuring him and even drawing attention to herself while Paul was trying to preach the Gospel, something Paul did to bring “Good News” to a new town. He was usually filled with the joy of the Lord doing this – however when this girl was around it says: “But Paul, being grieved”…. (that’s the opposite of joy!)
Paul began to feel grieved in the spirit – that means this evil spirit was coming against the work of the HOLY SPIRIT operating through Paul!
This is exactly what I went through when I had this happen to me and let me tell you – you will feel this too if you have this situation. The python/divination spirit will cause you to feel grieved, frustrated, and distracted. Even stressed and depressed. Pressure comes around your throat and heaviness on your chest – you begin to feel weary and do not feel like moving forward. If this persists it could cause you to question what you are doing, maybe that person could do it better, blah blah blah… this gets worse the more you agree with this evil lying spirit.
I want you to understand something – people can try to copy you, try to steal your ideas, try to do what you do – but they can never do what God gifted you to do just like you. Never.
People will try to steal your special “recipe”, but it will not taste the same when they try to use it without your anointing! Stay focused even when an attack like this would come. The best thing you can do is stand and not be shaken one bit.
Stay focused on the words of Jesus Christ when discerning relationships. Is it building up and creating abundance? Or tearing down?
Jesus made it clear how to discern what was from Him and what was not in John 10:10: “The thief comes only in order to steal and kill and destroy. I [Jesus] came that they may have and enjoy life, and have it in abundance (to the full, till it overflows).”
The spirit of divination will try to play with your emotions, make you feel unsettled, unfocused and try to trip up your work in public and pressure you to make you quit. They will try to shadow your light. It wants to tear down what you are building. You cannot allow it!! You have to take authority over it ASAP and here are the steps.
How To Take Authority Against The Spirit of Divination:
1.) If the person is being overly difficult you do not have to confront them. You can take care of this all in the Spirit realm in prayer. Remember it’s not the person, it’s the evil spirit operating through them.
2.) Suit Up – Get on your Armor of God, Take Your Seat of Authority and Apply The Blood Of Jesus to yourself, your family, your ministry and your business.
2.) Forgive the person who is doing this and repent for any bitterness or offense you have toward them, ask Jesus to wash your sins in His blood and put all offense and bitterness on the Cross. Ask God to bless the person you are forgiving and for the Holy Spirit to go to them and lead them fully to Christ and remove all veils of deception from their eyes of understanding and bring them to deliverance. If we do not forgive them, the accuser can use our unforgiveness against us and the evil spirit will still have a legal right to operate.
3.) You can ask God to remove the person and all their influence out of your business and ministry with His “Ax Of Judgement”. Do this prayer after you have forgiven the person. If you can clearly see that this individual is not there to produce good fruit for you or anyone else, you can stand on the word of God in this situation. Jesus said we would know them by their fruit, and the bad fruit is to be removed. Relationships in the bible are mentioned like trees that either produce good fruit or bad fruit. Fruit coming from a relationship should always bear the fruit of the Holy Spirit, if not, that relationship will be removed by God. You must be able to bear good fruit in all your relationships for the Kingdom. If any relationship is clearly coming against that, such as those operating in divination you can pray this powerfully…
The Ax Of God’s Judgment Prayer is based on Matthew 3:10 – “Even now the ax of God’s judgment is poised, ready to sever the roots of the trees. Yes, every tree that does not produce good fruit will be chopped down and thrown into the fire.”
Pray: “FATHER GOD your word says in Matthew 3:10, now also the axe is laid unto the root of the trees: therefore every tree which bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. Father I believe your word and I want to activate it right now in the spiritual and in the natural in my life and in all my relationships! I do not have to accept anything that is not the will of God for my life and my family, ministry and business. I BELIEVE The word of God is the will of God! I DECREE As for me and my house we shall Honor and Obey the word and the will of God and serve the Lord Jesus Christ for all generations thereof! Father in the name of Jesus Christ, I ask You to take your Ax Of Judgement and permanently remove any ungodly relationships around me swiftly, particularly ____________ in Jesus name! Chop these ungodly relationships and influences at the root, pull the stumps up out of the ground, shake the stumps with no roots remaining in the ground and cast this relationship and any influence it had into the fire to burn to ashes in Jesus name! I will never eat fruit from this ungodly relationship again! Father let all remaining influence from this relationship be burned up forever by your Holy fire in Jesus name. Let this be swift and calm, with no recourse or backlash, let your Holy Fire burn up any bad seed left from this ungodly relationship and it’s the relationship that is removed and burned to ashes and all their influence and not the person. I have prayed for the person to move on and into what you have for them Lord, but far away from me and my ________in Jesus name! Thank you Father for your word and your promises and the ability to discern good and bad fruit! Father replace any bad ungodly relationships with Holy Spirit filled relationships to bear good fruit together for your Kingdom and Glory in Jesus name, Amen!”
Now, sever all soul ties with that person: Declare: “By the Authority of Jesus Christ I break the power of and SEVER off ALL the demonic and ungodly strongholds, agreements and soul ties off myself and _________________ FOREVER IN JESUS NAME, I NOW WASH MYSELF AND __________ IN THE BLOOD OF JESUS AND INVITE THE HOLY SPIRIT TO COME AND FILL THOSE PLACES IN MYSELF AND __________________ WHERE THE OLD SOUL TIES HAVE DEPARTED IN JESUS NAME”
4.) Get the python removed off you if you have been getting a ‘smothering or choking feeling’. I would still do this prayer either way.
Stand and Pray: In the name and authority of Jesus Christ I command the python spirit to drop off my body and on the floor in Jesus mighty name! Python spirit, I renounce you and all your evil and I command you off me and under my feet right now in Jesus name! Drop off me NOW python! I take authority over you in the name above all names, Jesus Christ! Drop NOW to the ground in Jesus name! ( then take a breath and raise your sword of the spirit…..) “In the name of Jesus Christ I crush the head of the python spirit (stomp your foot on its head in the spirit) and I take my sword of the spirit and chop this python to pieces! (make a chopping motion on the floor below you) I chop you up python! Your head was crushed by the Cross of Jesus Christ and I crush you! You have been cursed by God you vile python spirit and I curse you and destroy you to pieces! You will never touch me again python! I scrape your chopped carcass into the fire of God to be burned to ashes (do a scraping motion with your sword of the spirit) and let the breath of the Holy Spirit of the Living God to blow what is left of you python into the dry uninhabited place where you will stay forever in Jesus name! I raise up my sword of the spirit and let the Fire of the Holy Spirit cleanse my sword! Let the fresh breath of the Holy Spirit fill my lungs! I breathe you in the Holy Spirit in Jesus name. I am free and delivered from python forever! Holy Spirit I ask you to pour fresh oil on me, so much oil that no python can ever attach to me again, it will slide off me because of the abundance of anointing in Jesus name! I declare I move free, breathe free, in the natural and in the spiritual and whom Christ has set free is free indeed! I am fully free in Christ Jesus! I place myself mind, body, soul and spirit in the blood of Jesus Christ forever! Through the blood of Jesus Christ I am redeemed from all evil and set apart for the plans and purposes of the Kingdom of God and nothing shall come against it in Jesus mighty name!”
5). Ask for God to assign and station “Sentry Angels” at the gates of your business and ministry to block these evil spirits.
Decree: “In the name and authority of Jesus Christ in whom I am seated, I thank You Father that you send your angels to keep me in all my ways. I ask You Father God to release to me Sentry Angels that will protect all my gateways. Thank You Father God. Therefore, in Jesus name and authority, I command and post my divinely assigned Sentry Angels of the Lord to these gateway areas to my ___________ both in the natural gates and the spiritual gates to my ________, including all gates to all the gates of communication, phones, computers, internet, social media, email and websites that I have. I command the Sentry Angels of the Lord that I have just posted to these specific areas to stand and protect these areas from all evil with fiery swords and shields 24 hours a day, seven days a week from this day forward in Jesus name! I command my Sentry Angels of the Lord, to not allow anything that is not of God to enter or come near any of my gates in Jesus name. I apply the Blood of Jesus Christ to all my gateways to my ____________ in the natural and in the spiritual. All my gates belong to Jesus Christ! I ask my Sentry Angels of the Lord to also go and locate, arrest, bind and remove any evil spirits that may have come in my gates and block those evil spirits from ever coming in or coming near my gates or near me ever again! I renounce those evil spirits, especially the spirit of divination is strictly prohibited from entering or coming near me my ___________ or my gates from this day forward in Jesus name! Thank you Sentry Angels of the Lord for your obedience and faithfulness to God and thank you Father for my authority in Christ Jesus to receive and command my assigned Angels of your Kingdom, for your glory forever and ever, Amen!”
Do these steps until you see the breakthrough!
It’s crucial that you do not waiver or let this spirit of divination/python manipulate you for too long! It comes against the good fruit that you are meant to produce for the Kingdom of God!
Ask God to release His Holy Fire into you:
Pray: “In the name and authority of Jesus Christ, I renounce and come out of agreement with all religious spirits and words and out of agreement with all spirits of divination and words and command them off of my mind, body, soul and spirit right now in Jesus name! LEAVE ME NOW YOU VILE SPIRITS! I send the fire of the Holy Spirit against you! Get out and go to the uninhabited dry place and stay there until Jesus Christ comes and tells you where to go and never come near me again! I close the door to these evil, vile spirits and seal it with the blood of Jesus Christ forever! I invite the Fire of The Holy Spirit of Almighty God to come in me now and burn in every place in me and around me to destroy any remnant of these evil spirits and refine me and make me excellent of soul with your DUNAMIS power Holy Spirit in Jesus name. Holy Spirit I ask You to fill every place in me and stand hold there forever! I declare a divine wall of Holy Spirit Fire is now around me protecting me and if any evil spirit tries to pass through this wall of Holy Fire they will be burned up to ashes in Jesus Mighty name!” Amen
You will begin to feel a huge positive difference. I am telling you will feel lighter and that heaviness and guilt will be gone! You will begin to accelerate in your public life and message like never before! Myself and my students have had incredible results from doing this. The growth and increase will come almost immediately. It’s like burning off the dead grass in a pasture, driving out the snakes to have new green beautiful pastures with nothing harmful hiding that can trip you up! FREEDOM!
The people in question also need deliverance from these evil spirits! Pray that the Holy Spirit will go to them and lead them to full deliverance. You can also pray those deliverance prayers over that person in the natural or in the spirit. In the meantime, don’t let one or two deceived people that are trying to upset your mission ruin it for so many more who really need you and are truly sent by God.
Get mad at the devil, not the person. Be solution oriented in the spirit realm! These evil spirits are more afraid of us when we come in the name of Jesus Christ – we are their worst fear! Remember that!
The devil can’t stop you through any person or situation. You have authority over all of it. You are a representative of the King of Glory who crushed the kingdom of darkness! All you have to do is enforce the finished work of the CROSS and the BLOOD of Christ in the name of Jesus! You have all access credentials to everything the Kingdom of God has!
The Cross and the Blood of Jesus is your KEY but you must use it and enforce it in your Seat Of Authority. The Fire of The Holy Spirit can be called forth by faith to burn up and chase out any remnant of operating in and around you that is hidden.
Flash your badge of the Blood and The Cross and blind the enemy! Make the enemy bow the knee to Jesus Christ! You carry the authority through Christ! The devil has no teeth!
Jesus already gave YOU victory over all the works of the enemy! You must put it ON the Blood of Christ every day in the spirit and wear it like an official credential to get you through every gate and door of influence you want to get into!
Keep going – do not stop for any distractions! Even people who try to distract you! Do not allow it. Deal with it swiftly!

How To Ask God For Divine Financial Sponsorship!

How To Ask God For Divine Financial Sponsorship!

Excerpt From Chapter 5 of my book: Faith At Full Speed “Divine Sponsorship”

My Victorious Friend, when you are in complete faith, stand on ALL the promises of God through Jesus Christ (old and new testament) and love what God loves, stay in covenant with God and be careful not to get into any covenant with anything that God despises – you will see the blessings (and divine financial sponsorship) of God come into your life at supersonic speed!

How To Do Kingdom Giving, Banking and Investing – Expecting A Return On Your Investment By Faith!

When giving to the Lord, we have the tithe (our obedient 10%) or an offering (over and above the tithe that is given with the intent of love for the Lord and believing Him in making good on His promise in Malachi 3:10) our first fruits (a first offering to the Lord each year or the first of something new the Lord has done in your life – first paycheck of a new job, first sale of a new book, etc) Then there is a seed offering (where you intentionally give unto the kingdom of God and name the offering as a “seed” that you will be expecting a harvest from. )

When you plant corn you don’t get daisies, right? You expect a corn harvest. It’s all about being specific with your seed. So you write your check, or send it via website, you write what the name of the seed and what the harvest you are expecting by faith. So you have a $25 seed, you say this prayer over your check or transaction:

“Father, Thank you for this $25. I offer this up to you Father and plant this as a seed into your Kingdom and I name this seed “new car”. I believe by faith that this shall produce a harvest for which it is sent according to Your word Father in Isaiah 55:11 that so My word that proceeds from My mouth will not return to Me empty, but it will accomplish what I please, and it will prosper where I send it.. In Jesus name I receive my new car in faith, Thank you Father, Amen”

You can even name your seed “for the salvation of my loved one _____” or “for the restoration of my marriage” or “for the returning home of my prodigal _________”

YOU CANNOT EXPECT A HARVEST OF BREAKTHROUGHS AND FINANCES IF YOU DON’T PLANT ANY SEEDS

(click here to sow a seed now – name it and we will pray over it and come into agreement with your seed offering into our ministry)

God makes it simple and wants us to understand Kingdom Finance and Giving.  Once your check or offering is decreed by faith into the Kingdom of God, it changes realms and is not under the earth curse system, but God’s unlimited Kingdom, where there is no lack – only abundance.

You also want to make sure the ministries where you “plant” your seed are growing and producing much fruit of the Holy Spirit and advancing the Kingdom of God. You want to sow into “fertile ground”.

You can also decree a 1000 fold return on your seed financially. WHEN YOU GIVE – GIVE WITH FAITH AND SAY: I AM BELIEVING GOD FOR 1000 FOLD RETURN ON MY SEED!! ACCORDING DEUT. 1:11 – “Father I sow this seed of $____ into your Kingdom and decree by faith over this seed that it will be blessed and multiply 1000 fold financial return according to Your promise in Deuteronomy 1:11 for me and my household and the ministry I am sowing it into in Jesus name, Amen!”

There are many teachings out there on Kingdom finances and giving. I have been guided directly by the Holy Spirit on Kingdom giving and I am excited to share this with you because I have received abundantly!  He will never steer you wrong and I want to encourage you to seek Him deeper on your finances too!  I also find it powerful giving your “FIRST FRUITS” to your loving Heavenly Father. First Fruits is a direct gift of love back to God – and it pleases God.  The Holy Spirit has given me a good understanding of how this works and why God set it up this way. It’s all very sacred and all very beautiful when giving to the Father and thinking of Him first.  The best understanding is this wonderful teaching I heard one time, I cannot remember where I heard it but it has stuck with me……

First Fruits Offering Is Like a Box of Chocolates!

“A father has two young sons, he wants to bless them each with a beautiful box of assorted chocolates. He gives each boy their box of chocolates and tells them he loves them and to enjoy. One boy runs to his room and digs eagerly into the box, and quickly eats up all the candy, chocolate all over his face, and is full and satisfied.  The other boy, stays near the father, opens the box of chocolates, thanks the father for the gift, and reaches the opened box  back up to the father, and says; “Father, would you like the first piece?”

Oh, how I love that little story! It fills my heart with the true relationship of how we are to be with our loving Father God! Even when we get great blessings – He wants to share them with us!  This is the First Fruits.  I have found when I do this my relationship with God grows deeper, and more good gifts that come from above to share with Him!

James 1:17, KJV: “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.”

When God brings your DIVINE SPONSORSHIP, bless Him back with the first part of it.  This is a very powerful act, and when you do this with love – you are in the GLORY covering with your finances!  God says to TEST Him in your offerings and watch Him pour out a blessing that you can hardly contain!

Malachi 3:10 “Bring the whole tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. Test me in this,” says the Lord Almighty, “and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it.”

Understanding God’s financial laws of sowing and reaping is key to your financial growth and divine sponsorships. Giving to Israel based missions is always important for your expediting finances and blessings and connecting yourself to the promises of Abraham. My ministry directly supports Israel. You should never come to the Altar of the Lord empty handed. You give what you can from the heart. Also understand when you give to a prophetic ministry you are blessed by a “Prophet’s Reward”. When we give to a prophet (like the shunamite woman did for Elisha) you receive major blessings and even miracles. My ministry operates under a prophetic mantle and we have seen so many words come to pass for those the Holy Spirit has spoken through me..  I am so grateful and humbled to operate in this calling and office of the kingdom!  God is TRUE to His word!

You have a choice to give an offering or sow a seed where you want.  God gives us free will, but we must give with the heart. I have learned it’s important to give where you are being fed the most. This is the “fertile ground”.  I also have been instructed many times by the Lord where and how much He wants me to give.  It’s important to step out in obedience – God will always return the blessing swiftly to you for your obedience. Obedience brings quick supernatural breakthrough!

Here is a prayer that I pray over my tithes, seeds and first fruit offerings to the Kingdom:

Tithing Money in the Kingdom – declare: “God is my treasure, God is my prosperity and my source of all my supply! God is my security!”

When you give, give with your heart in the kingdom – give to God  – I acknowledge God as my everything and He prospers me!

Lay your hand on the money, envelope or transaction you are giving to God. Then declare:  I acknowledge God as my prosperity and my source! He prospers me!

“Father, in the name of Jesus, I’m a believer! I believe what YOU say and YOU prosper the work of my hands!

My job, my family, my bank accounts, they are not my source!  You Father God are my source! You Father God are my prosperity!

I am grateful and I choose to worship You today Father God! In Jesus name! Amen!!”

A specific need – pray:

“Father God, your word says in Mark 11:24 Therefore I say unto you, What things soever ye desire, when ye pray, believe that ye receive them, and ye shall have them. Therefore, Father I desire ___________ and I believe I have received it today in Jesus name!  Thank you Father God!”

I am learning about this too as the Holy Spirit reveals – I have reaped much fruit from “Banking and Sowing/Reaping in the Kingdom” and wanting to give to my loving Father who gives so much to me. The key I have found is to use your money for the kingdom as much as possible and if you have to pay into something that is not fully aligned with the kingdom of God, take what you have to pay them and make it a seed unto the Lord for the salvation of the people who own that company you are paying. For example, I met a friend for lunch one day at a mexican place that was known for the fresh dishes. While in the place, I noticed a lot of pagan decor on the walls, such as Aztec sun gods etc. We prayed over our food, enjoyed our meal then when we went to pay we declared the money as a seed for salvation to Jesus Christ for the owners and all who were employed there!   The Kingdom is a lifestyle and when you command your money all day long and what you want it to do in Jesus name – you are at a level of GLORY with your finances – watch what God does for you when you come up to this level!  There is only “Shalem” (wholeness – fullness – life – peace) nothing lacking, nothing missing, nothing broken when you are fully operating in the Kingdom!  Plus it’s fun – every day is a Holy Spirit adventure and miracles are a regular occurrence!

I just love to have all my money flowing in for my needs and then put to use for advancing the Kingdom!  God is faithful to His word and promises, and if you carry these out by faith – you can expect DIVINE SPONSORSHIP for whatever you need and more!

Reaching a major goal or achieving a dream is like a winning race strategy. God has set us up to WIN if we follow His strategies in complete faith, and fully use what He has gifted us with. We will come into our divine purpose with amazing success.  

Everything in your life is like the preparation and laps in a race – bringing you to the finish line and ultimate victory.  It’s up to you how much power you want to activate behind it to accelerate it. If you are anything like me – you want to live a victorious life, doing your true purpose and be able to have the tools, the funds, the resources and people you need around you to live your dream with great blessing that overflows for your family and loved ones.

Ask yourself this question: What were you born for? Do you have enough faith to get there? God sees your potential.  He designed it in you. It’s time to activate it!

I saw this quote on social media recently, “When you meet Jesus, He activates the destiny blueprint within your spirit.” – Lance Wallnau

That quote really spoke to me.  Jesus is our master builder. I believe that it’s no accident that God had His only son, born in the flesh on earth to save us,  to be raised in the house of a carpenter (Joseph). What does a carpenter do? He starts with a design, draws it up (blueprints it), and creates it.  A great carpenter or builder not only fulfills a need with his creations, it actually can be celebrated as a work of art, that stands the test of time and serves many people for many generations.  This is a design like no other.  

Many times when I pray, I pray these words;  “Jesus, You are my master builder, activate the great plans and blueprints you have designed for me and let’s build build build together!”

In the Bible, Jeremiah Chapter 29 verse 11, God tells Jeremiah this same thing: “I have great plans for you”.

That means me and YOU, too.

You are designed for superior performance.  Like a high powered racing engine. 

When I was a little girl, my earthly father, Carmen Malfitana was a champion drag racer.  He had a very fast winning race car, a ‘55 Chevy Bel Air that he modified for speed. This car was legendary around the Upstate NY drag strips. My dad, with this very special car, set many speed records in the 1960’s that stood for years!  The track promoters even set up a race with a jet powered car to see if it could break the record against my dad and his Chevy. My dad still won by a smidge and held his record! As a child, I spent countless hours on a little rolling stool in the garage watching my dad work on his car, handing him wrenches and asking him questions.  My mom says my bedtime story with my dad, was reading Hot Rod and National Speed Sport Magazine, pointing to the beautiful shiny race cars on my daddy’s lap! No wonder my passion for fast cars! It was instilled in me at avery early age.

But, my dad’s biggest pride and joy in that race car was the custom built high performance engine, a 327 small block that had been built by the best engine guy in town.  My dad had collaborated with this engine builder to create a powerplant with “secret” characteristics and components that nobody else was using or knew about. This was to give it that extra pull off the starting line and all the way down the track.  Now get this – this engine was so unique it was “blueprinted” by the engine builder. 

In the motorsports world, when an engine is blueprinted that’s a pretty major thing – it means you have something so custom that when the engine performs, the engine builder wants to be able to have a blueprint to be able to keep recreating that same super fast performance for you. Building upon the original and keeping the specs unique to you, his special customer.  When you win, he wins. Because more customers will come wanting a special engine designed for them, too. Blueprinting an engine is also a winning edge for the racer, because he or she can keep the blueprint as a document for safe keeping for their race engine that nobody else can copy.  

You are built for special performance like nobody else has!

God wants to collaborate with you to take what He put in you – your specialized divine gifts – and make amazing things happen through you in your life!  He wants to ADVANCE you, and advance those around you through you and your unique calling! When you succeed and give Him the Glory you inspire more people to turn in faith to God for their lives too!  When you win, He (God) wins!

“A man’s gift makes room for him, And brings him before great men.” Proverbs 18:16

Here’s the deal.  A high performance engine is no good sitting on the engine stand in the garage.  It might look fast and powerful, but unless it’s “activated” with the rest of the things it needs to run and win – it’s just there collecting dust. 

Is your high performance purpose collecting dust?  Is your engine just sitting there waiting for you to start putting it to use?  

Maybe you have tried to put your gifts, purpose and calling to use but it never seems to get going or it needs to pick up some serious speed? 

That’s a question that we are going to answer right now!  Are you ready to rev up your purpose and activate your gifts so you can step off the starting line full speed into your divine calling? 

If the answer is YES then take a deep breath, close your eyes, hands on your heart and DECLARE this out loud:

“Father, I am ready to use the gifts you have put inside me and activate the divine purpose you have designed me for! I say YES to my calling right now in Jesus name, Amen!”

Did you feel it?  Did you feel your spirit power up inside you?  

Remember what Jesus said: “The Kingdom Lives Within You!” (Luke 17:21)

You just activated God’s unlimited Kingdom with its unlimited power in you with your words!  The power of life and death are in the tongue! You will learn as you go along in this book that the words that come out of your mouth are either added horsepower or dead weight to your purpose!  I want more horsepower, how about you? YES!
