Transcription of the word that the Holy Spirit gave to Annamarie Strawhand, which she delivered during her broadcast of Life in the Faith Lane on July 30, 2021.

Watch the video, and then read the transcript below. 


ANNAMARIE:  So, um, I do have a, a word to share quickly, um, that I just want to go ahead and just, just flow this to you right away. I, I did post it on my Telegram, uh, chat, and I posted it on my Facebook page, uh, yesterday, and I also posted it on my YouTube. 

So, um, yesterday, I kept hearing, “more faith, more faith, more faith.” I kept hearing, you know, “I’m searching for the faithful ones.” I kept hearing the Lord speaking that to me; “I’m searching for the faithful ones. I’m searching for the faithful ones. I’m searching for the faithful ones.” And we know that the word of the Lord says that the eyes of the Lord search to and fro across the, the earth looking for those who agree with him. Right? And what is that, right? We’ll come into agreement with God in faith. We’ll come into agreement with God’s word in faith. We’ll come into agreement with, that God’s, God’s miraculous power. 

Um, and, uh, I, I really want to encourage you all today that we, we need to be, uh, very, very focused on the power and the might of God right now instead of what’s going on in the world and in the government. Um, you know, I mean, hey, you’re on social media. You’re, you know, you’re, you’re just going through conversations with people, and a lot of times it’s family members, and there’s a lot of negativity out there. There’s a lot of fear being spewed. There’s a lot of, “Oh, they’re going to control this. They’re going to mandate this. They’re going to do this. They’re going to do that.” And what that is, is that’s the enemy keeping fear swirled in the atmosphere. That is what I call a demonic frequency—a demonic frequency where the enemy can keep that conversation of fear, uh, going in the atmosphere, and where it’s just people are constantly rehashing, and, and passing along the, the fearful words that are being spewed into, uh, the atmosphere, into, into communities, in, you know, over the media waves, right, because the devil, uh, is the pow, power and principality of the airwaves. Okay? 

Now, you know, people are coming to me, you know, as a faith leader, people are coming to me going, “Annamarie, what do you think about these mask mandates? Pray. Pray. Pray. What do you think about, uh, you know, the, the, the jab mandates? Pray. Pray. Pray.” So, I’m getting a lot of, you know, panicky, uh, type comments, panicky type fear, uh, based prayer requests, and, you know, I want, I did go under prayer about it, and the Lord spoke to me, and he said, “WHERE IS THE FAITH?” And he kept saying to me, “I’m looking for the faith. I’m looking for the faith. I’m looking for the faith. I’m searching and searching for my faithful ones. Who’s going to stand up and be the bold voices of faith? Who’s going to press in in this time?” 

And he even told me, he said, “Go to Luke Chapter 18, and read what I said about those that are in the kingdom. Those that are of the kingdom are like the persistent widow—the ones that, that keep pressing in and hammering persistently, persistently, persistently with what they want in righteousness.” And he’s, this is what I need, he needs his persistent ones in faith. He needs his ones who are going to step out boldly—the mama bears, the papa bears, the baby bears—that are going to say, “Wait a minute! Huh-uh-uh! This unrighteousness will not happen, and we are speaking up and speaking boldly for it, not just for the body of Christ, but for all people.” 

So, as I was reading through again—Luke 18, of the persistent widow, and Jesus says, he says the kingdom of God is like the persistent woman that goes to an unrighteous judge, even though that judge is evil, even though that judge is corrupt, right, even though that judge is not a man of God, this righteous woman … Who does that represent? Who does the righteous woman represent? The church. The ecclesia. The voice of the body of Christ. And we are the kingdom advancers. We are the bold voices for the ecclesia. 

And so when I read that parable again, when Jesus said it’s like a, a, a woman who is, you know, the, the righteous woman, the woman, she goes to that in, in front of those unrighteous people and says, “Give me justice with my adversary!” And she just keeps hammering. She comes back day after day after day and gets in that judge’s face. She gets in his face, and she says, “You give me justice with my adversary. I will not stand for this injustice. I will not stand for this unrighteousness. I will not stand for this evil.” And she just keeps going back and persisting and hammering. She’s not taking no for an answer. 

And that’s what Jesus says we’re supposed to be like. The church, the ecclesia, we’re not supposed to be taking this crap from the government. This is what Jesus has created his church—the woman, right, the persistent woman—that we are supposed to be the bold voices for all people and for righteousness and for the kingdom of God and say, “We’re not going to put up with this crap, not on our watch.” And we’re going to keep going, and we’re going to keep speaking our voices loudly, and we’re going to say, “No. We want justice. We want freedom. We’re standing up for freedom. We’re standing up for righteousness. We’re standing up for the Bible. We’re standing up for Jesus Christ. We’re standing up for our children. We’re standing up for the Constitution of the United States.” We have to be Luke—18 people right now. 

So this is what the Lord said to me, and I’m going to read it to you. I did put it on my, uh, my channels yesterday, so I’m going to pull that up exactly the way the Lord spoke it to me. And, um, I’m telling you what, when, when the Lord said that to me yesterday, I was like, “This is part of your brilliant plan, Lord. This is part of your brilliant plan.” Now, we know that, that the Lord has told us that President Trump has done the most of this, and the military has done the most of this against the evil ones, against taking down the evil ones. But the Lord is showing me this, this last piece of his plan, and it’s about us standing up. It’s about us standing up. We are, we are this last piece of the puzzle—his ecclesia, his church, the, the woman that goes in front of these unrighteous  people, right, men, women, children, mama bears, papa bears, baby bears, right. 

You see, it’s starting up in July. I’ll tell you what, and it is going to get louder and louder and louder. I love this quote. You know, Billy Graham had an amazing quote, and I use it all the time, and I love it, love it, love it. That the backbone of one man standing up for righteousness, speaking up boldly for righteousness, stiffens the backbones of many others.

So, for example, okay, I, I had, I had a, a session with, uh, one of my, um, my, uh, mentoring students the other day, and, uh, you know, she’s, she’s a mama bear. She’s a mama bear. She’s starting a ministry in her town. Uh, she’s getting a lot of, of backlash, uh, from, you know, uh, I guess you would call them unrighteous people, uh, who have sinful—type businesses in that town, and, uh, I said, “Listen, I know you feel like you’re standing alone, but we’re going to pray, and you are the persistent woman. You are the persistent woman that Jesus is talking about in Luke 18:8, and you’re going to stand up, and you’re not going to take this unrighteousness. Not only are you going to stand up for your own business, your own children, your own community, but you’re going to stand up for the body of Christ. And when you stand up, watch all the other mama bears that start to come beside you.” 

Don’t be afraid if you feel you’re standing alone. Don’t be afraid that you’re going to embarrass your kids when you, when you, you stand up and you speak for boldness, speak for righteousness in front of that, uh, that, that, that town council, that city council. Go in front of your city council and tell them, “Look, this is wrong! This is wrong!” And, and, and you don’t have to be religious about it. You can say, “Listen, this is, this is coming against our children. This is coming against our community, and I want to see justice.” You know? 

And so, I told her, “Stand up, and then watch how you are one person standing up with a bold voice. The Lord will bring other people beside you.” He will start to bring divine laborers to your side because you and your bold faith will inspire others because there are, usually, there’s a lot of people that are afraid to go and speak out. They, they believe in righteousness. They are passionate about righteousness, but they’re afraid to go and speak out. They’re afraid to be that persistent woman. Right? But when the first person goes and becomes that persistent person for righteousness, all of a sudden, right, more people will come by their side. You know, somebody’s got to start it. 

So, um, you know, God brought President Trump to shake us awake and get it started, get it ig, ignited, right? And now we, we are the last part of this plan, and prophetically, this is what the Lord spoke to me. Okay, are you ready? All right. This is the word of the Holy Spirit. In the Spirit, I am hearing him, “more faith,” and “where are my bold voices?” This is what God is asking us right now. And then I was led to Luke 18:8, the parable of the persistent widow spoken by our Lord Jesus Christ. I am discerning that we must press in with our faith and even greater right now. That God is with us, and persist for justice with our voices. Mama bears and papa bears, it’s time to cause the fear of God with our faith and our voice. The more we apply the pressure to the unrighteous judge, the unrighteous people, just like Jesus says, they will have to give into our requests. 

Now, I’m going to read to you that parable in just a minute. I believe this is what President Trump is waking us up to do. Even though he has already done most of it, we the people must complete it. God is using this to bring bold faith back into his people. 

Okay, Luke 18:8 [Inaudible] Luke 18: “The parable of the persistent widow, widow. When Jesus told his disciples,” okay … Do I have a good sound? Y’all can hear me good? I hope so because I’m reading the word of the Lord, and, uh, I want you to, I want you to, uh, listen, okay? All right? I have a fan running in here, so I hope my sound is good. Are you ready? 

Okay. “The parable of the persistent widow. And then Jesus told his disciples a parable to show them that they should always pray and not give up. He said, ‘In a certain town there was a judge who neither feared God nor cared what people thought.’” That’s pretty much everybody in our government right now, almost, even the local government; even right down to the school boards. “And there was a widow in that town who kept coming to him with the plea, ‘Grant me justice with my adversary.’ For some time, he refused, but finally he said to himself, ‘Even though I don’t fear God or care what people think, and because this widow keeps bothering me, I will see that she gets justice, so she won’t eventually come and attack me.’ And the Lord said, ‘Listen to what the unjust judge says, and will not God bring about justice for his chosen ones who cry out to him day and night? Will he keep putting them off? I tell you, he will see that they get justice and quickly. However, when the Son of man comes will he find faith on the earth?’” 

My friends, this is not the time to just roll over and take it. The Holy Spirit was very, very intense with me yesterday with this word, and he told me to share this up with all of  you. This is the time for us to press in with our faith like we’ve never done before. This is a time for the ecclesia—the body of Christ—to raise up and raise our voices for righteousness and persist and persist and persist. 

Like I said, that quote from Billy Graham, “When one man stands up with a backbone, it stiffens the backbone of many others.” Even if you’re the only one standing and speaking up for your school board, even if you’re the only one standing and speaking up in your city and state, even if you’re the only one speaking up in your religious institution and saying, “No, we will not have mask mandates. We will not do this.” Right? Even if you’re the only one, I’m telling you, when you stand up in faith the Holy Spirit is with you. God is with you, and when you persist, when you hammer like this woman, right, God will bring divine laborers by your side. They will be inspired to come and, and, and be by your side and, and be your wingmen and women and mama bears and papa bears and baby bears all beside you, and you will no longer be alone. You will have, you will gather many people because there’s a lot of people that want to say it, but they’ve been too afraid to say it. So somebody’s got to step forward and say it, and, when you do, more will come. 

Let me tell you guys something, and when I, when the Lord gave me that word yesterday, I said, “This is part of your brilliant plan, isn’t it, Lord?” This has been it all along. When he gave me that word back in, um, November, back, all the way back in November for the election, and he said, “Watch my brilliant plan unfold.” This is the end piece of the plan. People keep saying, “When, Lord, when, when?” And the Lord is saying, “YOU, my ecclesia, my church, my, my, the body of Christ, my people, NOW, this is the time for you to press in and speak up boldly in faith.” He’s saying, “Where are my faithful ones? Where are all my bold voices?” 

This is part of the plan all along, to renew the spirit in the people of God, and where the spirit of freedom is, is the Lord. He operates through the spirit of freedom and liberty. Jesus was a rebel. Jesus was a maverick. He spoke up. He didn’t cower to the ways of men, to the ways of the religious institutions, to the, the ways of the government. He said, “This is what the word of God says.” He used the word of God as his sword. Right? And, not only that, he told them like it was. Now, they didn’t like it. That’s too bad. 

But if we really want to be the hands and feet of Christ, we’ve got to stand up boldly and speak righteousness, speak the word of God. And watch who you inspire. If everybody starts doing this where we are … Are you a mama bear? Are you a papa bear? Are you a baby bear? You see, the whole month of July has been about the mama bears and the papa bears and the baby bears rising up. God gave us a word two years ago and said, “Watch my mama bears,” and you see it’s just been a few moms starting up and now it’s, it’s catching on. It’s catching on from east coast to west coast. We’ve had prophetic confirmation with God says, “Watch my mama bears.” This is the piece of the, the, the, the end piece of the puzzle to fulfillment of God’s perfect plan in all this. It has always been about waking up his church. It’s always been about waking up his people. 

John 11:11, “Lazarus is sleeping. I’m going to wake him up.” Watch the glory of God. Jesus had to boldly go and do that miracle. He knew it was going to freak out a lot of people. And we have to be like that persistent widow. We’ve got to keep speaking boldly. We’ve got to go in front of those unrighteous people and say, “NO, we will not be forced into these things.” 

This is the spirit of Elijah. This is the spirit of John the Baptist. This is the spirit of liberty and freedom come against, coming against the false prophets of Jezebel, of Baal. You see? We talk about that song, “These are the Days of Elijah.” Well, we’ve got to be the Elijahs. We got to be the persistent, we, we got to get in the face of these people that are, are, are, are trying to delude and, and swirl fear and deception, and you heard what Jesus said in that word. Even though the judge was unrisha, unrighteous and did not fear God, he feared that woman. He feared the persistent woman who never gave up. 

Never give up. Never give up. Never ever, ever give up. Never give up. Never give up. Never ever, ever give up. Now, I’m rallying the troops for Jesus Christ today because he gave me a word yesterday, and he said, “Where are my faithful ones? Where are my bold voices?” It is time! Come on, we got to, we got to press in to the finish line!

You guys know that I was a race car driver coach for 30 years, and I would hear the crew chiefs on the radios, right, towards the end of that race, you know, when the drivers were getting weary after 500 laps. Many of you are feeling weary in this race. You’re feeling weary, but in those last three final laps, green, white, checker, baby. We are at the green, white, checker. I can see the finish line, and that’s when the crew chief gets on the radio, and he says, “Driver, you’re down to five laps. You’re down to three laps. Get up on the wheel. Get up on the wheel, and stand on the gas. Get up on the wheel and stand on the gas. Get up on the wheel and stand on the gas. Get up on the wheel and stand on the gas.” 

Y’all’ve read my book, Faith at Full Speed, right, where the Holy Spirit is your crew chief. He’s on the radio to you. Listen, we are in the final laps of this, people. We have got to press in with our faith. It’s time to get up on the wheel and stand on the gas. We’re almost there. 

I’m telling you what, when the Lord said that to me yesterday, and he says, “Where are my faithful ones? Where are my bold voices?” I felt major conviction in my spirit. I was like, “Uh, yes, Lord. Yes, Lord. This is when we really got to be pressing in. This is when we really got to be speaking up and, and standing up and speaking out. This is, you’re, [Inaudible], you’re absolutely right, Lord.” 

Now, can you speak up? Can you speak out? Yes, you can. I don’t care if it’s, it’s your local school board. I don’t care if it’s writing a letter to the newspaper. I don’t, whatever, right? I don’t care if it’s you’ve been, you know, you’ve been thinking about getting a group of moms or a group of dads together to go and, and speak at the te, city council meetings. 

You remember Nehemiah rebuilding the wall? Right? He said, “Keep the trowel in one hand and the sword in the other.” Because we got confirmation from the Lord last week for us to keep building. Don’t stop building. [Inaudible], don’t stop building even if they try to muzzle us, even if they try to put up the price of lumber and all those things, you keep going. You keep building. You keep building your ministry. You keep building your business. Right? Don’t, don’t let them stop you. God is giving you everything you need to keep going and keep building. And now he’s saying, stand up and stand out in faith; he’s got you. What did Nehemiah say, right? Have a trowel in one hand building and a sword in the other, right? 

We got to stay suited up in our armor of God. We got to keep building. We got to keep building the church for Jesus Christ. We got to keep building the kingdom. We can’t stop, and then we got to have a sword in the other—the word of God and righteousness. And we got to … What does Nehemiah say? “Hear the sound of the trumpet. When you hear the sound of the trumpet, gather together. Gather together. Yahweh will fight for us.” We’ve got to gather together. We’ve got to stand hand-in-hand, shoulder-to-shoulder, locking arms for righteousness. You’re not going to, you’re not going to come against our, our wall. You’re not going to come, come against us building this nation. You’re not going to come against us building the, the kingdom. No way, José! Doesn’t José mean Joe? [Inaudible] 

Listen! You, my friend, have God behind you. He is with you, and he’s saying, “Where is your faith? Where is your bold voice? It is time for you to be a Luke—18 people.” Persistence! 

You know, somebody said to me when I wrote that word yesterday, and I put it on the, the, my social media, somebody said to me, “Annamarie, thank you so much for posting this word. This is the first time I had ever seen that parable in the Bible.” She said she was told all these years by religious leaders not to pester God, not, not to, not to, um, not to ask for something more than once. She said, “I never realized that Jesus told us to be persistent.” She said it just totally changed her and totally opened up everything for her. This is why we got to be in the word all the time, and remember the words of Jesus Christ, the instruction of Jesus Christ and how we are to proceed to build the kingdom of God with absolutely no fear whatsoever. 

Now, God is with you. He is fighting for us. He’s rallying us up. We are part of this brilliant plan—our voices, our persistence against the unrighteous leaders—because we, the ecclesia, the congregation, the body of Christ, we have ALMIGHTY GOD with us! And he’s saying, “Where is your faith?” Do not give into the fear. Do not give into these evil mandates. You seek justice for yourself, for your household, for your family, for the church, for your communities, for your children. Let’s make our Father God PROUD OF US! WHEN JESUS CHRIST RETURNS, WILL HE FIND FAITH? YES, YOU WILL, LORD! YES, YOU WILL! COME ON! 

Now, if you’re feeling weary, if you’re feeling like you can’t get up on the wheel and, and stand on the gas in these final laps, that you, you need some strength, immediately, go to my Suit Up Prayer on my website and get suited up. Get on your armor of God. Take your seat of authority in Christ Jesus. Sp, every morning, it powers me up! It powers me up. Right? I get in my seat of authority in Christ Jesus, and I say, “Father God, according to your word in, uh, Ephesians Chapter 2, I do now take my seat of authority at your right hand in Christ Jesus where I rule and I reign as a king and a priest in Christ Jesus, through Christ Jesus. I put everything from the kingdom of darkness under my feet. I enforce the blood of Jesus Christ over my life, over my, uh, steps today, over everywhere I go. I command everything to bow the knee to the Lord Jesus Christ. Why? Because the blood of Jesus Christ speaks a better word over any other word that’s out there. Oh, mask mandates. Oh, this, we’re going to, we’re going to do this. We’re going to do that. Guess what? I don’t care about the unrighteous words of the evil one. I say, “The blood of the Lord Jesus Christ speaks a better word over that and cancels their word.” Come on, people! Use the tools that the Lord has given us. Occupy until he comes. 

The Lord gave me a big mouth. I used to get in trouble for my big mouth. I remember being in middle school and everything like that. Teachers wanted to put tape on my mouth, everything like that, but, you know what? The Lord wanted to use this for his good. I remember being a kid, and we lived in Upstate New York, and it was always, you know, really cold in the winter time at the bus stop. And the kids didn’t want to wait at the bus stop, so they would, you know, hunker down, in, in, in their, in their homes or in their garages. And I would stand out there. I would bundle up, and I would stand out there, and I could just see the bus coming over the hill, right, and as soon as that bus would come over the hill, I was the one that would yell for all the kids. I would say, “THE BUS” as loud as I could, and all the kids would come running. 

Now, I’m waking you up, and I’m telling you THE GLORY TRAIN IS COMING, and God is waking up his people. But we got to be a part of laying down the track and getting it ready. We got to start hitting our hammers HARD for the kingdom and speaking up and speaking out. 

Will Jesus find you faithful? Will he find you as a kingdom warrior like the persistent widow in the parable of Luke 18—that you didn’t cower down; that you kept persisting until you saw justice and the righteousness of God? I’m asking you that question today because Jesus told me to ask it. And I say this with love, my friends, the big mouth that the Lord has given me is waking you up today. This might make you a little uncomfortable, and, if you’re feeling weary from prayer, get suited up; get in your suit of armor that the Lord gave you; get covered in the blood of Jesus Christ; take your seat of authority, and power up in the Lord because the Lord is your strength. Nothing is impossible with God. You either have faith, or you have fear. Choose one. I say it with love. Hallelujah! 

So I had to share that right away this morning, and, um, I want you to go back and read that word. Okay? And, you know, maybe if, if you aren’t the one that’s speaking up, find somebody that is. You have a bold person in your community, a person of faith who is speaking up, get behind that person. Maybe you’re not the mouthpiece. Maybe someone else is the mouthpiece, but the, that person needs warriors coming beside them. 

So if you see somebody standing up in your community for righteousness, get beside that person! Help that person! Have their back! All right? This is your assignment. This is, this is part of the Lord’s brilliant plan. I mean, I’m, I, I, I get it. I, I understand. I see what he’s doing! President Trump has done the bulk of it and the military, and what you’re seeing right now happening is to wake up the people. Why? Because God is bringing this last piece of his plan together for his people, his ecclesia, his church, his faithful ones, his bold ones to speak up to speak up and speak out! Now’s our time to shine, church! Let’s do this! Let’s make our Father SO proud of us!
