What You Don' Know Will Hurt You

Updated: Jun 5

Where are You and Where are You Going From Here? 





I get to the next messages, Hopefully the readers will understand my call. I am called by Jesus Christ with the office of bishop, the evangelist and prophetess as two of the Five fold ministry gifts given to the church to help to grow the body of Christ (church) into maturity.


 And He Himself [Jesus] gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ,  till we all come to the unity of the faith and of the knowledge of the Son of God, to a perfect man, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ;  


that we should no longer be children, tossed to and fro and carried about with every wind of doctrine, by the trickery of men, in the cunning craftiness of deceitful plotting, but, speaking the truth in love, may grow up in all things into Him who is the head—Christ— from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by what every joint supplies, according to the effective working by which every part does its share, causes growth of the body for the edifying of itself in love (Ephesians 4: 11-16).




If anyone gets offended with my messages, please remember that some people were offended by Jesus’ messages/teaching; especially the pharisees (religious leaders) who knew the law of Moses. However, when it came to spiritual matters, they had no clue. As a matter of fact, they wanted the people to put them on a pedestal, and when Jesus came on the scene with the truth that took the attention off them, they went as far as having Him crucified.




I don’t have a problem with people saying or doing things against me because the Word of God is my encouragement and it motivates me to continue moving forward. Blessed are you, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.




Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you (Matthew 5:11-12). Oftentimes it is because of  jealousy and a lack of understanding, which stands to reason for immature Christians.



Now to my office of evangelist- handles are on my name only when it is necessary

I am concerned about lost souls, and I am doing everything that the grace (anointing) that empowers me to carry the Gospel of Jesus Christ effectively. Also, there are many people who are saved, but there is a lack of understanding. Therefore, I am concerned about their spiritual growth, so they can fulfill God’s purpose in their lives.

"Send me Lord, I'll go" Isaiah 6:8

My office as prophetess


As I was preparing to write, this came to me. I must bring correction, warning, and encouragement, which leads to the children of God being edified when they are convinced (convicted) of their wrongdoing. My intentions are not to come forth with a harsh message, but with one that will convince someone who is in sin (error).



The scripture that came to me what was God was telling Ezekiel, the prophet. Now it came to pass at the end of seven days that the word of the Lord came to me, saying, son of man, I have made you a watchman for the house of Israel; therefore hear a word from My mouth, and give them warning from Me:  When I say to the wicked, You shall surely die, and you give him no warning, nor speak to warn the wicked from his wicked way, to save his life, that same wicked man shall die in his iniquity; but his blood I will require at your hand. 


Yet, if you warn the wicked, and he does not turn from his wickedness, nor from his wicked way, he shall die in his iniquity; but you have delivered your soul (Ezekiel 3:16-19).


The principle is the same today. The nation of Israel was God’s people; they rejected Christ, and we are God’s people. The Lord has the five ministry office in the church to help the body of Christ grow. Without the entire five offices ministering together in their particular call, the church is out of balance.


Next- Please Stop Trying to Put People in Heaven or hell.
