ANNAMARIE: “Um, but listen, yesterday, um, the Kentucky Derby…, and I, I love horses. We have a horse. Uh, we have a horse rescue ministry here. And, uh, the Lord speaks to me through sports. He, he sp, speaks to me through auto racing, which I spent 30 years in NASCAR racing.

JK: Right.

He speaks to me through horse racing. He speaks to me through, he speak, spoke to me through the, uh …

JK: Football games too.

Football games …

JK: Yeah.

The Liberty …

JK: Yeah.

University Football game.

JK: Right, right.

Um, but, let me tell you something. Is the Lord speaking through major events—sports and things like that? Yes …

JK: Yes.

He is. You know, you just have to have discernment and say, “Lord, what are you saying here?” Now, I’m going to lead you through what the Holy Spirit told me about the Kentucky Derby yesterday, and it’s a great …

JK: It’s a great word.

Message for right now, and I’m encouraged. I’m very, very encouraged here. Um, and, um, now the, let me, let me get, let me pull up my, the information.

JK: Okay.

Um …

JK: [inaudible]

And we’re, we’re going to, with the prophetic word about the Kentucky Derby. Uh, we will be in the book of Esther. Okay?

JK: Okay.

Uh, and, uh, it’s Esther 8:17. Uh, the Lord spoke to me about Esther, uh, with this, uh, Kentucky Derby winner. So, let me go ahead and tell you how the Lord gave me the prophetic word, uh, from the Kentucky Der, Derby winner. Okay?

All right, so they ran the 147th Kentucky Derby yesterday.

JK: Okay. [inaudible]

Okay? Thoroughbred racehorse, uh, races. And the winner of the Kentucky Derby was, uh, a, a small, a small kind of, you know, not-too-noticeable, uh, horse named Medina Spirit.

JK: Spirit.

Medina Spirit.

JK: Spirit.

M-e-d-i-n-a Spirit. Now, um, this horse was only purchased for a thousand dollars. Nobody, he was, he was overlooked.

JK: Yes.

He was overlooked and, uh, nobody thought he was going to be a winner. Um, he was purchased for a thousand dollars and brought into the best, uh, horse stable, uh, for Kentucky Derby winners, and, uh, uh, Bob Baffert trained him, who is, he’s, Bob Baffert is the winningest …

JK: Yes.

Kentucky Derby winner trainer.

JK: Yes, I know exactly who you’re talking about.

He, he took this little thousand-dollar unknown …

JK: Yeah.

Thoroughbred horse who nobody wanted. He’s kind of small, overlooked.

JK: Right.

Right? And his name is Medina Spirit, and they said he went out and dominated …

JK: Yeah!

The race.

JK: Love that.

Dominated the race!

JK: Whew!

And he carries the number eight, okay. And we know, biblically, okay, listen to me. This is, this is a very, very important word for right now.

JK: Yes.

So, I’m giving a prophetic word, friends, about the 147th running of the Kentucky Derby that happened yesterday on May 2, 2021. All right?

Now, the horse that won the Kentucky Derby was named Medina Spirit, carrying the number eight. He was only purchased for a thousand dollars. He’s a little, overlooked horse that just by an amazing move of, I believe of the Holy Spirit …

JK: Mm, yes.

Got this unknown horse into the greatest training stable with the greatest trainer, and he became a, a winner of the Kentucky Derby yesterday—literally, dominated the race.

JK: Um, I love that.

Won the race. And so, I said, “Lord, what are you saying here?” And he said, “Esther.” I said, “Esther.” Okay, now, Esther was a orphan. Okay? She was kind of overlooked. Um, she had been living, of course, with her cousin, Mordecai. She was, uh, uh, a Jewish orphan that, um, was, was, uh, literally taken, okay, by the King of Persia’s, uh, guards and brought into the palace. Okay? And she was groomed …

JK: Yes.

And groomed and groomed and groomed and groomed. Uh, they said she spent, uh, I don’t know how many days in a milk bath with milk and myrrh and …

JK: Oh, wow.

You know, and she was groomed for her, her time before the king.

JK: Yes.

And the king saw something in her. He, the king saw something in this little orphan, okay, that, that nobody else saw, and he was overtaken by her beauty and her spirit. Right?

JK: Right.

And he married her, and she became Queen Esther. Well, Queen Esther was actually put into the palace for that time by God for a move of the Holy Spirit for just one, one major moment of her life.

JK: Right.

We know that the very famous scripture where she is to go to the king, uh, and do a divine reversal, okay, which Esther, um, she literally has to go rush boldly to the throne of the king and give her request.

JK: Um hm.

Boldly, okay, without any fear because if, if she doesn’t go and make her request to the king, then her people …

JK: Her people.

Will be killed and, but instead, God, God placed this orphan, this overlooked girl into the palace of the king. Gave her all the influence. Gave her all the winning strategy. Okay?

Now, we know that the chapter of Esther eight is the divine reversal chapter.

JK: That’s right.

Right? And we had a prophetic word here, uh, several months ago that there will be an Esther moment in America …

JK: That’s right.

Where there will be a divine reversal.

JK: Yes.

And that even other prophets, including Kim Clement, spoke and said that there will be an Esther that will come.

JK: Yes.

And we are to say yes to Esther.

JK: Yes.

And the time of divine diverse, reversal where everybody thinks evil is winning …

JK: Um hm.

Everybody thinks evil has all the influence. Everybody thinks, “Oh, it’s just death and despair and horrible and it’s just …”

JK: Yeah.

“Going to be horrible.” And then all of a sudden comes this Esther, and Esther comes, and everything is turned around and, and, um, the evil ones hang on their own gallows.

JK: Oh.

It’s a divine reversal. Now …

JK: Whew!

I saw this little horse, and the Lord said, Esther to me, that this horse represents Esther. Okay, hear me out. And the number eight—eight biblically re … uh, in the Bible means new beginnings, new beginnings and also represents Jesus Christ.

JK: That’s right.

So, the number eight is Jesus Christ, the Alpha, the Omega. Right?

JK: Yes.

And the, um, infinity, infinity, right, the number eight infinity represents Jesus Christ. And the eight also represents new beginnings. This horse carries the number eight. Okay? He was purchased for a thousand dollars. We know that the main scripture in the Bible that’s about the one thousand is Deuteronomy 1:11. “I will bless you and prosper you a thousand times more than you are.” That’s God’s promise to his people—the promise of Abraham. Okay?  

JK: Wow.

So, we’ve got the thousand dollars, the, right?

JK: Yes.

The horse was purchased for a thousand dollars. He was like this overlooked orphan, right …

JK: [inaudible]

That brings that Deuteronomy 1:11 promise in. Right? I’m going to prosper you a thou ….

JK: Right.

This horse won millions of dollars yesterday.

JK: Yeah.

Millions. Okay? He was purchased for a thousand dollars.

JK: [inaudible]

That’s God’s showing his blessing of multiplication where I can take the overlooked, right, and turn it into …

JK: Right.

Right? The thousand-fold. All right, so, how do we get to Esther? Well, I looked at the horse’s name. I said, “Holy Spirit, what are you speaking about the horse’s name?” Well, I knew spirit had to do with the Holy Spirit, our, ours, our spirit, uh, you know, for, for God, right—the spirit of victory, the spirit of winning, the spirit of, uh, overcoming. Right? So, I knew that, and the Lord said to me, “Look up the word ‘Medina’ in the Hebrew.” So, I looked up the word ‘Medina’ in the Hebrew, and I always look up words in the Hebrew because that is God’s language.

JK: That’s right.

When God is speaking, th, he’s going to, he’s going to always bring us to the Hebrew. The Hebrew is what God wrote with his own finger in the Ten Commandments.

JK: Yes.

It’s his language. Okay? So, I said, “Okay, Lord; I’ll look up the meaning in Hebrew, uh, Medina in Hebrew.” And, okay, listen to this. According to the Hebrew, the word ‘Medina’ originally meant jurisdiction, but in old Aramaic, old he, the old ancient Hebrew Aramaic, okay, what it means is…. Oops, let me pull this up. Hang on. [inaudible] What it means is, um, sovereignty, sovereignty, of a city. Is, am I saying that word right?

JK: Sovereign.

Sovereign, right, a sovereign city, a jurisdiction. Okay? Um, and Medina means sovereign city or jurisdiction and it’s connected to the Hebrew, and it only shows up in the Bible one time—the word ‘Medina’. And guess where … in the Hebrew? Esther Chapter 8 verse 17.

JK:  Whew!

Come on!

JK: That’s powerful. Thank you, Lord.

This horse, Medina Spirit, with the number eight, right, an orphan, you know, overlooked …

JK: Overlooked. Everybody counted him out.

Everybody counted him out, literally went from nothing to the greatest horse stable in Kentucky.

JK: Yes.

Was groomed. Became an over, overcoming winner—dominated the race. Carries the number eight, which represents Jesus Christ …

JK: Yes.

And new beginnings. Come on!

JK: [inaudible], I love it.

The word ‘Medina’ in the Hebrew means sovereign city. Right?

JK: Love it. Love it.

Sovereign city has only been used in the Bible one time …

JK: One time.

Ever. I did a whole search.

JK: [inaudible]

Oops sorry. I talk with my hands.

JK: You’re okay. Hey, you’re Italian.

And the only time it was ever used was in Esther chapter eight verse 17.

JK: Wow.

Now, let’s read …. This word is for us …

JK: Yes.

In America. This is our Esther word.

JK: Right.

The Holy Spirit arranged for this little horse …

JK: [inaudible]

To win the Kentucky Derby to give us a message of hope—that we are having an Esther moment in this nation—a divine reversal. Get ready.

JK: Okay, get ready.

Okay, I’m going to read Esther 8:17.

JK: Seventeen.

Are you ready? This is amazing. And we know the number 17 means victory of the overcomer.

JK: That’s right. That’s important too.

So eight, eight represents new beginnings in, in Jesus Christ. The number 17 represents victory of the overcomer, and the only place that the word ‘Medina’ in the Hebrew shows up in the entire Bible is Esther chapter eight verse 17.

JK: That’s so, so powerful.

I’m going to read Esther chapter eight verse 17.

JK: Okay.

All righty? “And in every province…”. That’s where, uh, Medina comes in.

JK: Mm.

“And in every city whithersoever the king’s commandment and his decree came, the Jews had joy…”

JK: Joy and gladness, a feast and a good day.

“And gladness, a feast and a good day. And many of the people of the land became Jews; for the fear of the Jews fell upon them.” That is the moment of victory. That is the moment of divine reversal that those who were the enemies of God’s people now fear God’s people. Come on! And the city being sovereign, right, which means it’s now under the jurisdiction of God’s …

JK: God.

People. It’s now under the jurisdiction of almighty God. That’s what that word ‘Medina’ means—a sovereign jurisdiction, a sovereign city under the jurisdiction of God, and it only shows up in the Bible one time—Esther 8:17. There’s the eight. The horse’s number is eight. He was an overlooked horse.

JK: Yes.

He was taken into the finest stable in Kentucky. Taken by the finest trainer. He was groomed to be a winner—overwhelming victory at the Kentucky Derby. Come on, God!

JK: Praise God! That is incredible. Something else that speaks to me too is, uh, Medina Spirit. You know …


JK: We have the Holy Spirit.

The Holy Spirit upon us, and the spirit …

JK: Spirit.

Of God’s people. The spirit of victory.

JK: That’s right.

And so God is saying each city, each state, each, each …. Right now, what’s going on with the states, my friends; what’s going on with the states? Right? They’re coming into their sovereignty. They’re saying, “No more. We are not going to listen to the enemy no more. We’re not going to listen to the, the evil one.”

I just saw, um, I just saw, uh, the, the, she’s, she’s a, uh, congresswoman, or she’s a leader in the state of Arizona. Uh, she’s a, she’s a woman, and she is a powerful woman.

JK: Ooh.

I can’t think of what her name is right now, but I just saw her. She did a video, and she was talking about the voting, the, the ballots being …

JK: Right.

Uh, audited.

JK: Audited.

Uh, in Maricopa County.

JK: Yeah.

And, um, you know, and I think the word ‘Maricopa’ is connected to the word ‘butterfly’. I think it is. I think Maricopa is connected to the word ‘butterfly’, but anyway, um, and we all know butterfly, right, transformation …

JK: Transformation.

New beginning. Um, but she said that she’s going to say, “You federal people, you have no business in Maricopa County.”

JK: Mm.

“We run our own audit. We are saying what’s going to happen.”

There, these cities and states are taking their sovereignty, and they’re not going to listen to the federal government anymore. The spirit of the people is rising up for freedom.

JK: That’s right.

It’s that spirit of freedom, and where the, where the, where the spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom.

JK: There is freedom. Amen.

And she is standing up, and she’s saying, “You’re not going to send your, your, your, uh, Democrat groups, and, you know, your, your little …”

JK: Good for her.

“Federal people.” She goes, “This is Maricopa County, and we’re running our own deal.”

JK: That’s right. Good for her.

And that’s what I pray upon every city, every state because I believe when Maricopa County, when, when this audit happens, and, and this divine reversal …

JK: Yes.

That the Lord said was going to happen in …

JK: That’s right. That’s right.

The states, and he specifically said Pennsylvania. He said divine reversal in Pennsylvania, but it’s, it’s going to be like a domino effect.

JK: It, it, yeah, all the others will follow suit.

Yeah, it’s all going to, right, and, and v, overwhelming victory, victory, victory, victory …

JK: Victory.

Victory in, in these, in these sovereign cities, and this, this spirit of Esther …. Esther is a, a, a, a spirit of, of the kingdom of God. Right?

JK: Yes.

The spirit of Esther.

JK: Yes.

That divine reversal. That, that overcomers’ victory.

JK: Yes.

And I just, when I read this, and I say, “Lord, you are sending us a message from this little horse…”

JK: Yes, that was, that’s amazing [inaudible].

“Medina Spirit.”

And I just thank the Lord for this revelation, this confirmation. And let me tell you; you know the word is from God when he sends you to his Word.

JK: That’s right.

Everybody says, “How can you tell a false prophet? How can you tell if it’s really God? How can you tell if it’s …?” I said, “Does he send you to the Word for confirmation?”

JK: There you go. There you go.

Because God’s will is his Word. God’s will is his Word.

JK: That’s right.

Every prophetic word, everything that, um, you know, God is speaking in these times should confirm in his Word.

JK: Amen.

And I don’t ever release …

JK: That, now, that’s confirmation, right there.


JK: I mean, it’s incredible.

I, I don’t ever release a prophetic word unless the Lord gives me confirmation in his Word. And let me tell you something. Even if the Lord comes on me during a broadcast …

JK: Uh huh.

I take that word, even if it’s a live situation, I take that to him …

JK: [inaudible] seek the Lord on it.

And I say, “Lord, I ask you to give me confirmation in your Word about it.” You know, because I know that we have to read the Bible with the power of the Holy Spirit. We have, we have revelation that comes to us …

JK: Yes.

From the Word—the power of the Holy Spirit. And, but that’s how the Lord confirms everything.

JK: His Word.

So, I want you to take this word about this Kentucky Derby racehorse, okay, and I want you to just pray on it. Say, “Lord, thank you for your sign of confirmation for this little Kentucky Derby racehorse, Medina Spirit. Thank you, Lord, that your spirit of Esther is upon this nation, and we will have overcoming victory, that the overcomers shall have victory, and the joy of the people shall come and those ….”

Let’s read, let’s read Esther’s 8:17 again. “And in every province” (every city in America, every county in America) …

JK: Oh, yes.

And in every city in America and every county in America, right; take this word for ourselves.

JK: Yes, proclaim it.

“The king’s commandment and decree [inaudible] came.” The King—Yeshua, Jesus. Right? “And the Jews had joy and gladness …”

JK: Joy and gladness.

“A feast and a good day. And many of the people of the land became Jews; for the fear of the Jews fell on them.”

Listen, this is for the Christians too—the Christians and the Jews—God’s people. We are one new man. We are coming together as one. We are coming together …

JK: Yes.

As one. You see, Deuteronomy 1:11, the thousand, the thousand-fold promise is for those, the chosen people of God—the sons and daughters of Abraham. Jesus Christ, when you become a believer in Jesus Christ, you become grafted in, grafted into that promise of Abraham—that Deuteronomy 1:11 promise that I will prosper you a thousand times more than you are. Listen, this is a promise.

JK:  A thousand, a thousand times a thousand is a million.

A thousand times a thousand is a million. Wow!

JK: So, I wonder how much he won.

So, he won, that horse won a million, over a million dollars.

JK: Oh, wow.

And this promise is for us. So listen, guys …

And yes, yes, Lori McNeill says she was just in Lancaster, Pennsylvania yesterday visiting the theater that Queen Esther play performs.

JK: Ooh, Sight and Sound Theater.

Going to, she’s going June 3rd for her birthday.

JK: Oh, wow.

Well, that word came to us about Esther when Ivanka Trump was in Lancaster, Pennsylvania.

JK: Ok.

And, at the opening of the Esther play in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. Remember?

JK: Yes, I do remember.

If you go back to …. Maybe Lori can find the link to that word, um, I had a prophetic word …

JK: It says yes to Esther.

Several months ago. It says, it’s a Esther word.

JK: It’s a [inaudible]

And the Lord spoke to me when Ivanka Trump was, I, Ivank, Ivanka, uh, was in Lancaster, Pennsylvania. She was there the day of the opening of the Esther play. Uh, at, at Sight and Sound Theaters.

JK: Okay.

And the Esther play has run longer than the Esther season. You see, that Esther play has run, not just through the season of Purim, Purim, Purim … [inaudible] say it properly.

JK: Right.

But the Esther play, in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, has run all the way through Passover all the way through into Pentecost, and now we’re coming into Pentecost. Come on!

JK: We’re coming into Pentecost, guys.

This, we are still in our Esther season, my friends.

JK: Yes.

And God is doing this, and this message from this horse, I’m telling you, is confirmation for divine reversal in the cities and states taking their sovereignty, sovereignty and we are going to see a divine reversal. And God’s people have the victory, overcoming victory—8:17. So, listen, no matter what you see going on in the natural—like, “Oh, it’s just terrible [inaudible].” Stop it! They like it when I say that.

JK: I love it!

I remem … I’m going to say it again. Stop it! She thinks that’s funny when I say that.

JK: A lot of people do. [inaudible] love it. We love it.

Anyway, stop with the fear. Stop with the worry. Stop with the [inaudible]. Stop! Stop it! We say yes to Esther!

JK: Yes to Esther. That’s right.

Over, the victory of the overcomers.

JK: Oh.

Listen, my friends, do you think President Trump would just leave us like this?

JK: No, no.

I have worked with winners all my life.

JK: Yes.

I’ve worked with NASCAR drivers. I’ve worked with the best winners you’ve ever met. Okay? I’ve worked with Jeff Gordon, Dale Earnhardt. The, they win for a living.

JK: Yes.

That’s what they do. Okay?

JK: He’s a winner, for sure. [inaudible]

And I understand their personalities, and I had to train up race car drivers and train them how to be winners and have a winner’s mindset. I wrote a book about it.

JK: Right.

Okay? President Trump is a winner. He doesn’t walk away from anything.

JK: No.

I know how a winner’s mind works.

JK: Right.


JK: He, you know, when he left the White House, he didn’t seem in fear or distraught or  

He wasn’t worried.

JK: It was under control, you know.

Everything …. God has got this, and now God is giving us messages through this little horse, Medina Spirit.

JK: Yes.

And brought us to the word, Esther 8:17, and we are still in this Esther divine moment. And the cities and the states are taking their sovereignty, and they’re saying, “No more of this federal evil, uh, you know, influence. No. No.”

I, I mean, I saw a group of people the other day, parents going in and taking over the school board. They voted out all the evil influences out of their school board …

JK: Oh, good.

And they’re like, “We’re coming in. We’re taking over.”

JK: That’s right.

You see?

JK: That’s the way it ought to be. Yeah, come on. [inaudible], yes.

That’s the spirit of freedom, the spirit of sovereignty, right, where the people come together and say, “No more …”

JK: No more.

“Of this evil. No more of it. We’re done with it. We’re coming in, and we’re bringing in righteousness and what we say goes—God’s word, God’s values, God’s righteousness.”

JK: Amen.

And I’m telling you, and this is what we’re going to start seeing, this ripple effect, and it, we are in a Esther 8:17 time.

JK: Wow.

And everything that the enemy meant for evil shall be turned to good, and our Lord and King, King Jesus, let me tell you something …

JK: [inaudible]

He has already spoken about revival and billion soul harvest. Jesus is getting his bride and he is getting his reward of the harvest. And revival is here my friends.

JK: It is.

And, and if you, if you think for one minute, let me tell you something …

JK: Yeah, come on.

If you think for one minute that these evil people can stop a move of the Holy Ghost …

JK: Yeah, that’s really funny. Mm hm.

I’m telling ya, I mean, it, it’s happening. The Holy Spirit is going to, whew, it’s going to be like a rush of fire …

JK: Wow.

Across this nation …

JK: Like a [inaudible].

And pouring out into other nations.

JK: Right. Like a tsunami.

Yes, yes.  Okay? So, come on, get on the glory train. Know that God has got this, and that little horse—nothing was stopping that little horse.

JK: Nope.

I mean, he was …

JK: He …


JK: He just blew, uh, blew past everybody.

He did. Uh, give me an amen and a woo hoo, people, for this word. Just know, my friends, that we are overcomers in Christ Jesus, and where the Spirit of the Lord is there is freedom, and the Spirit of the Lord is upon us here in America.

And that confirmation of that Kentucky Derby winner yesterday, uh, it just was amazing. And, uh, God confirmed it in his word. The only time the word ‘Medina’ shows up in the entire Bible in the Hebrew is Esther chapter eight verse 17 …

JK: That’s so incredible.

Which is the victory verse, right, where the victory ha, has been finalized, and the, the, those who were evil, those who were persecuting God’s people have, have come under the, the fear of God’s people. See?

Let me tell you guys something, and this is what I just love. I just love this. I just love, love, love this. I love it when the Lord confirms his Word. Okay? I just love it when he confirms his Word, and he, he drives, he drives me to a word to confirm prophetically what he’s showing us with what’s going on in culture. Do you not think, come on, when this happened to Esther thousands and thousands and thousands …. Well, I don’t know how many thousands of years ago.

JK: A couple thousand.

Couple thousand years ago. When this happened to Esther, right, because Jesus is the Alpha and the Omega. He’s the end from the beginning.

JK: Right.

He has written it all. He has written it all. Right? Jesus writes the best stories. Okay? Do you not know when this all happened that God had this very day on his mind? He, the, the Lord, the Father, and the Son had this very moment in, in, in time …

JK: It’s, it’s incredible when you think about it.

On his mind.

JK: I mean, he’s seen all the little details of everything. He’s so profound. He’s just, uh, I’m just in awe. I really am. I’m in awe when I just think about it.

We serve a mighty God.

JK: We serve a mighty God. Yes, we do.

And he knows the end from the beginning, and he always wins. Come on!

JK: Come on.

Whew! [inaudible] Esther, Esther is our Cinderella story, and, um, you know, it’s, it’s a story of us with Jesus Christ our King, and going boldly to his throne …

JK: Yes.

And asking, petitioning him, and, um, it’s, it’s a story of, uh, victory, and it’s our story, my friends. It’s the story of God’s people, and, um, you know, you were born for such a time as this.

JK: Right.

Each, each and every one of us. How is, how is God going to use you for that bold move that he has for you in your life? What is he preparing you for? Don’t think you’re overlooked. Don’t think that you’re overlooked. God wants you to have overcoming victory in your life. Right? You’re not a nothing. You’re not a nobody. You have great value for the Lord.

JK: Amen.

And, um, you have the blessing of Abraham. You have the covenant through Jesus Christ. You are in God’s family. You have victory in all things.

And I bless you all today in the name of Jesus, and I just thank God for that prophetic word with [inaudible].”
