The first thing to wait for, to listen out for is the Word of God, for God by His Word sets the course of our destinies at any given time.
“The word of the Lord came to Elijah” 1And it came to pass [after] many days, that the word of the LORD came to Elijah in the third year, saying, Go, shew thyself unto Ahab; and I will send rain upon the earth.” (1 Kings 18:1)
Is the Word of God coming to you frequently, sometimes or you don’t know?
Are you tuned in to God? How can you hear God more and more clearly ?
We aim to help, through interactive teaching & training gatherings, believers in Jesus live as victorious and true disciples of Christ.
All they need to do so is found in the Word of God – the know how and strategies, ways to avoid pitfalls are clearly given and also can be gleaned out of incidents and biblical Characters’ lives. Come and receive insight, wisdom, knowledge and direction for effective & victorious Christian living!
Deborah’s Teaching & Training Ministry which is central to the gatherings, even through invited speakers are focused on the believers’ prophetic identity, destiny & holiness (inc. repentance, forgiveness and obedience).
The goal is that God’s people will have the knowledge, wisdom and understanding as well as practical tools/keys derived from God’s Word regarding their Identity, destiny or purpose on earth.
Teachings always emphasises that when partnering with God for the aforementioned to be fulfilled, it is important to partner with Him in relation to God’s call on His people to be holy and how this is possible or what it means practically or actively i.e. obedience, forgiveness, repentance etc…
The motivational tool God gave Deborah in June 2016 is an extremely valuable tool in training sessions. She used it for the first time in the 2nd July 2016 seminar, please scroll below this page for detailed feedback entitled “In Full Bloom Motivational Exercise” from delegates of the seminar. This exercise will be used at the 11th February 2017 seminar, bookings are now underway (see below)
This is what Deborah said about it“This God inspired exercise I produced is a powerful inspirational prophetic tool to enable a pair to help each other effectively match their gifts, talents and skills with the most appropriate or suitable career, church ministry or volunteer work pathways for them. Individuals are awakened to the fullness of their God given capabilities as never before and are encouraged to pursue goals that encourage them to utilise their capabilities to the maximum”

Testimonials /Feedback from MEM's online/email prayer & prophecy ministry
Feedback from prophetic word and counsel/encouragement I gave through email Prayer & Prophecy ministry in the last couple of months:
B.'s Request for prayer & counsel into a problem
In reply to my email he wrote: "Thank you so much for your words of wisdom, exhortation, and comfort. I can't thank you enough for your prayers for me. Thank you for encouraging me to read and meditate on Isaiah 61 and 62. I will definitely do that this week. "
After second contact, he wrote "Once again thank you for providing your Godly counsel and insight into my situation...You raised some very important questions for me to ponder. I agree with you on all your points. You confirmed to me what the Lord has already been talking to me...."
D. prophetic word I gave her:
Thank you so much for such a great encouraging word. So much is on point and relevant to my situation, thank you very much! D".
P. asked for prayer and a prophetic word:
"Thanks Deborah. That does speak to me , much of the words you give to me!...The part with the prophetic mouthpiece is really strong on my heart and God used me sometimes in the area of the prophetic. Many thanks for hearing, God bless you! P."
I give glory, thanks and praise to God Almighty through my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ without whom this ministry would not be POSSIBLE!
The Power of the Prophetic Word of God to Re-Affirm, bring a Turn Around, Give and Restore Hope.
I preached and ministered prophetically on 29th July 2017 at a Women’s Conference called “Time to Blossom” hosted by Henrietta Azah, The Christian Woman Ministry.
My message was “You have what it takes to fulfil your destiny/to blossom”. To the glory of God, I highlight some of the feedback I had about the Prophetic words God used me to give mainly to highlight the power of the prophetic word to re-affirm, bring a turn around, give and restore hope. This is in effect an aspect of the healing & transformation of the Body of Christ that we should not under estimate.
One spoke of her personal call of God in Ministry to children (a prophetic dream someone had about her in children’s ministry prompted her into it many years ago) and she was wanting to give it up for some reasons however I was led to pick her. (I did not have time as they were running late so I cut my message short and just picked a few people at random to minister to. It appeared “at random” but God directed me.) When I did, the Lord spoke into the Ministry with children powerfully to this lady,
even words of expansion in this area. She broke into tears and I sensed she had truly received this word and it completely touched her to the core. This Prophetic Word had affirmed her Ministry and she was encouraged and so will not stop.
The other lady said “you know all the people you picked to prophecy over from this church go to the same home group. I was thinking of leaving that group because of all the negativity! But I think after today there will be a change. In fact one of them, an elderly lady (in the same home group) sitting next to me who you called out, prior to you calling her out she said words to the effect that there was no hope to her blossoming at her age (I had also just included in my teaching that blossoming or fulfilling one’s destiny does not have an age limit). But I think there will be change now so I will stay”.
I said “praise that you are encouraged enough to stay in your home group now.”
God knew what He was doing when I went around choosing people to prophecy over. God knew the urgency of certain situations and in the limited time, He dealt with them by the might of the prophetic word. I am encouraged and blessed to serve the Body in this way!
You are blessed & highly favoured determine to remain so!

IN FULL BLOOM PROPHETIC & MOTIVATIONAL EXERCISE:
WHAT IS IT?
A Training Tool of Maranatha Encounters Ministry
2.Brief Explanation of In Full Bloom Motivational Exercise and its Purpose.
This exercise was birthed in June 2006 by Deborah E. Nyamekye, founder of Maranatha Encounters Ministry that organises revival gatherings and has an online prayer & prophetic encouragement platform. Deborah first used the In Full Bloom motivational exercise at the first Prophetic Identity, Destiny and Holiness Gathering (formerly Seminar) entitled “Rise-Up, Thou Anointed & Favoured of God!” that she organised and hosted on 2nd July 2016.
This motivational exercise is undertaken in pairs. Deborah said “This God inspired exercise I produced is a powerful inspirational prophetic tool to enable a pair to help each other effectively match their gifts, talents and skills with the most appropriate or suitable career, church ministry or volunteer work pathways for them. Individuals are awakened to the fullness of their God given capabilities as never before and are encouraged to pursue goals that encourage them to utilise their capabilities to the maximum. Each person is encouraged through the exercise to use their gifts of discernment/intuition, wisdom, knowledge and prophecy with the person they are paired with. They will be surprised at how God can use them for others in this type of exercise more than they ever thought. They may also discover God given gifts which have lain dormant or they did not know were there”.
2. BRIEF EXPLANATION OF “IN FULL BLOOM” MOTIVATIONAL EXERCISE AND ITS PURPOSE
During the exercise, there are questions to answer in relation to one’s partner’s key information they have noted and shared and a request to give conclusive advice and encouragement to one’s partner. There is encouragement to pray while undertaking the exercise and finally to pray with one’s partner. WHAT HAPPENS? The process of this exercise enables paired partners to 1)see and highlight from looking at their partner’s gifts, talents and skills (natural or acquired through education) the type of careers, volunteer work (church/secular) and hobbies they are capable of doing in addition to what they have already noted and presented to their partner. 2) answer specific questions on paper about their partner (if they were in their shoes) in relation to what they have to offer the world and how they are doing so. Another question is “what advice or words of encouragement would you give your partner?” 3) discuss and pray with their partner the information they shared and their partner’s response and advice. For more details please contact Deborah Nyamekye: email@example.com
WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THE IN FULL BLOOM” MOTIVATIONAL EXERCISE ?
The purpose is to enable individuals to -see what they had to offer in the way of gifts, skills and talents in a more positive way (i.e their worth and relevance) than they had before the exercise. -realise that what they had to offer (i.e. gifts, talents and skills) could be utilised in ways (possible careers, volunteer work/ministry or hobbies) they had not even thought about or had dismissed. Thus each individual is highlighted the fact that they have within them the potential to -be more of a blessing or to make more of a difference in the lives of others. -make career choices that suit who they truly are or their capabilities learnt or natural gifts, talents and skills. As one participant of the exercise on 2nd July 2016 put it “This is a framework that can help people connect their talents with their choice of career path” – be affirmed and confident in applying for a particular job, engage in specific ministry, volunteer work or a hobby that they would have hesitated to do in the past. -be more confident in the relevance of their current gifts, talents and skills to what they do (i.e. career, volunteer work, church ministry and hobby) and what they could do or would like to do in the future. -be much happier, more fulfilled and better able to excel as the exercise enables them to perceive their full potential in relation to their gifts, talents and skills. In so doing they are able to confidently capitalise on their current gifts, talents and skills so as to making the right career, volunteer work, church ministry and hobby choices. They can also decide to undertake further training in areas of particular interest or strength if need be.
GOD GIVEN GIFTS AND ABILITIES ARE USED DURING THE COURSE OF THIS EXERCISE
In addition to ministering through prayer, each person is also encouraged through the exercise to use their gifts of discernment/ intuition, wisdom, knowledge and prophecy with the person they are paired with. The fact that it is done in pairs also enables each partner to understand that they have a God given ability to discern, utilise God given wisdom and revelation in order to “pull out” or bring to the fore potential or destiny from within someone else. True believers in Christ are all prophetic by virtue of having the indwelling Holy Spirit. Living a Christian life in surrender to God enables the sanctifying process of the believer to take place and this means that the Christian is being refined within to the glory of God; their discerning and intuitive capabilities are becoming increasing yielded to God the Father through Christ Jesus.
As Deborah said at the end of the first gathering of Maranatha Encounters Ministry on 2nd July 2016, following the feedback from delegates (see below point 3) “When I began this exercise, I never once mentioned the word “prophetic” but listening to all your feedback with phrases that express how God has used someone who is “very sharp, very prophetic” for your sake and He has allowed you to speak “inspirationally” into the life of another. This exercise affirms and underlines the fact that everyone who is a born again Christian, a believer in Jesus and has the Spirit of God dwelling in them is “prophetic” because the Holy Spirit is the Spirit of prophecy, the testimony of Jesus and knows the mind, will and wisdom of God and communicates them to us (1 Corinth. 2 and Rev 19:11). God is able to use us for the sake of one another by His Holy Spirit indwelling us. (c) Copyright Deborah E. Nyamekye 02/07/2016 In Full Bloom Motivational Exercise

Seminar Delegates’ Testimonials of the In Full Bloom Prophetic & Motivational Exercise, a Training Tool – From two seminars
Testimonial of the In Full Bloom Prophetic & Motivational Exercise from Maranatha Encounter Ministry’s two Seminars, namely:
1.Arise & Shine Prophetic Seminar on 11th February, Venue: City Temple Conference Center, 31 Holborn Viaduct, Holborn, London, England
2.Rise-Up Thou Anointed & favoured of God Seminar on 2nd July 2016, Venue: Tooting URC, Rookstone Road, Tooting Broadway, London, England
Note: Only initials of delegates are used. The delegates paired with people they do not know. For general information on the In Full Bloom Prophetic & Motivational Exercise, see Note entitled: “In Full Bloom Prophetic & Motivational Exercise – What is it?” The feedback from delegates highlighted or reinforced the fact that this exercise is God inspired and part of God’s creative ways in enabling His people to bear more and lasting fruit to the glory of His name and kingdom. “Yes, I am the vine; you are the branches. Those who remain in me, and I in them, will produce much fruit. For apart from me you can do nothing…You didn’t choose me. I chose you. I appointed you to go and produce lasting fruit, so that the Father will give you whatever you ask for, using my name” (John 15:5,16 NLT)
1.Arise & Shine Prophetic Seminar on 11th February, 10-3:30pm Venue: City Temple Conference Center, 31 Holborn Viaduct, Holborn, London, England
Pair 1 – T.A & S.K T.A: “As partners we have never met before. This exercise is an eye opener. What I want to do and how I see myself and how Susan sees me from what I wrote revealed that we were in 100% total agreement, which was quite extraordinary. I am going to take that way and meditate on it – what her answers were in accordance with what I had written. This is a useful tool.
S.K: T.A has said pretty much everything, the only thing I would like to add is in answer to the question “what are you going to take away? I found it a struggle to think of what I am good at, I am not very good at drawing things from within, I am sure there is a lot there. As T.A said “ask people, family and friends”. It was a useful tool.
Pair 2 – E.B & E.E E.B everything E.E wrote (what she thought I could do given my skills/talents/gifts & qualifications) was very spot on, describing me ..as a teacher and youth worker which were confirmations. Things I keep running away from but God keeps bringing me back to those things, which I found very encouraging. It also helped me not to doubt myself so much and to know that these are gifts from God and your gifts will make room for you to grow.
E.E I also found this exercise quite insightful. There is something that E.B wrote, which when I read it, I started to cry because it is something that God spoke to me about in the place of prayer. (When God spoke to me) I said “I am not really a writer, I don’t know how to write stuff.. how can I be a writer when I write very few words?” E.B was so spot on, even though I feel that I have achieved a lot in my career, there is still loads I have to do.I still feel challenged that I am not really where I am supposed to be and I should go out and do more.
Pair 3 – Y.M & W.P Y.M I feel confident knowing that I can hear from God and give direction because I used to doubt myself a lot in regards to my memory and mind. This exercise has helped me to have confidence in myself that I can encourage others and be influential. W.P spoke about the fact that she felt I should be teaching and motivating people (given my skills/talents/gifts & qualifications). When I was younger, I used to have quite a bad speech impediment, but when I started to speak more to people, the stammering has decreased. I used to see myself teaching in the past, but then I used to doubt I could do it because of stammering. But now W.P has confirmed that she sees me teaching, and as the stammering has decreased, I will look into it. What I have learnt from this exercise is that even if you cannot see yourself now as you will be in the future, you can get there; God will take you there . He will unravel gradually what is in your life, to get you there. So I feel so encouraged.
W.P Because I am one of the speakers of this Seminar, Deborah thought I may not have wanted to take part in the exercise but speakers have to realise that God has taken them somewhere and they are still going somewhere. Y.M is a divine connection, I believe in divine connections. She told me that I am capable of running workshops. This is true; I run workshops for youth and adults which are self funded and free for attendees. I have been looking for a scheme whereby I can get funding which would enable me to continue self funding my workshops and offering them for free. Yvonne did not know of these plans, but she advised me (thus confirming) that I should advise small business and as a result generate funds by doing so. She has no idea that I do mentoring and coaching for free. I thank God for using you.
Deborah’s (Seminar host & trainer/facilitator) remarks after the training session: “Whenever I hear people giving feedback, I note that this exercise is fulfilling the purpose for which God gave it to me in June 2016, prior to the first seminar Rise-Up, Thou Anointed & Favoured of God! There is a point worth noting in that as children of God, we all have the Spirit of God indwelling us right? The Spirit of God is the Spirit of prophecy. The Spirit of God is the testimony of Jesus.If we have the Holy Spirit in us, God can and does use us to give godly advice, prophetic counsel to one another.
Many times we underestimate what we have within “Oh I don’t know whether I really have a word from God or whether I hear from God” We hear from God more than we think actually, but many do not have the confidence to open their mouths to speak what they hear and when they do and it is accurate in terms of confirming something, they get surprised. At this seminar we have people who have testified of being encouraged and motivated by their partners words which were about things they already knew but had not implemented as yet or things they had brushed aside because of doubt due to one reason or another. This is an encouragement to us all. As anointed Children of God, don’t take your advise to people lightly. When you are a Christian who is prayerful, lives in the Spirit, fellowships with God, He uses you every time even to speak into the lives of others, more than you realise. So let us realise indeed that God does use us exceedingly and give glory to God for it.”
2.Rise-Up Thou Anointed & favoured of God Seminar on 2nd July 2016, 10-5pm. Venue: Tooting URC, Rookstone Road, Tooting Broadway, London, England
Pair 1 J.R & D.J
J.R’s Feedback – This exercise is good because it helps us to appreciate what we have and what we can impart into others. We do not see this enough in the body of Christ as we should be…we live in a time of great oppression at every angle…This type of exercise is excellent in helping us to encourage one another, to live up to those encouraging words and to give them out freely…” D.J’s Feedback -“J.R is very sharp, is very prophetic and what she said was very encouraging. Her advice was words I had heard and received before. I feel I have received something that I can actually wage a good warfare with and take forward. I am grateful when I do receive ministry that I can grab hold of and work with. I do not get the opportunity to do so often.”
Pair 2 M.O & H.L
M.O’s Feedback – “What I found from doing this exercise was that it opens up your eyes to what you actually have [gifts, talents, skills] and how you can make use of it and if you are using it, how you can even explore it more and go higher in it because God has given us gifts and talents we can actually use not just for ourselves but to bless others in situations we find ourselves in. I found it very very useful, really a blessing. Thank you very much to the organiser. I want to say that we are loaded, everyone here is loaded [with gifts, talents and skills] don’t let anyone tell you that you are not loaded: “You can do all things through Christ who Strengthens you” (Phil 4:13).”
H.L’s Feedback – “Thank you very much, I am quite a visual person.. Like to get engaged in something ..it works really well. When M.O and I swapped our papers it was like “wow, wow..We have all these qualities”, even that was enough for me to say that we tend to downplay what we have and what we do. [This exercise] really does give you more confidence. I hope that this exercise actually gives you more confidence in what you are doing or looking to do. Yes it’s been an encouragement for me, and even the advise M.O gave me. I get reluctant accepting certain things from different people, but knowing that it is in a space like this and has come from M.O’s own heart and I can resonate that with what God has registered to me, he (M.O) even put scripture on it. All of that is even more helpful confirming a lot of things and giving confidence.”
E.A’s Feedback – I found the exercise really helpful. It released a lot of inspiration and was able to unlock a lot of things that have been kept buried and kept on a back burner which has been brought more to the forefront. Obviously even when we go home, we can begin to release those things to the Father and re-engage in so many areas. I really felt it really helped me to flow, to minister to our sister here inspirationally as well. I really felt it also brought a level of bonding and intimacy with people you are actually doing the exercise with.”
L.L’s Feedback – “This is an amazing tool! I do coaching and training … It really impacted me.. X (her friend) has been speaking to me about ministry and I am like no! It really made an impact on me, so I can actually go to the Father now and say “ok let’s do this, I don’t want to say I don’t want to do this because I know I can by your strength so how can I do this?” You need to go to churches with this. I am serious, also leaders in churches so they can then impart it to their churches. This is because we don’t do this in churches, we do it at work. This is a framework that can help people connect their talents with their choice of career path.”

Rise up, Thou Anointed & Favoured of God! (I), 10-5pm Venue: Tooting URC, Tooting Broadway
What attendees said about the 2nd July Seminar Rise-Up, Thou Anointed & Favoured of God!:
“it was truly a blessed time of empowering, building and connecting…I was thoroughly blessed and looking forward to meet up again.” Stefanie Menezes
“I was just so excited when you told me about your seminar on Holiness, Identity and Destiny Deborah and I just knew I had to be there. Yes it was an empowering, inspiring and exciting day to hear such powerful teachings/testimonies/prophecies and for me, confirmation of what the Lord wants for his bride. Thank you Sis [Deborah Nyamekye] for your obedience to the Lord and labour for the advancement God’s Kingdom for such a time as this. Your relationship with the Lord reveals a closeness and intimacy that God loves and an example and inspiration for us all. I know it is costly to serve the Lord in this way but the reward that awaits you will be so awesome and eternal.” Dominique Oliva
“Very empowering” Russell Elson
In Full Bloom Exercise (in pairs) general feed back “Excellent Tool for people to know what they have inside as abilities/capabilities to offer..” Also “It will be good to present this to churches and use it for church leaders as well as church members”
Pastor Andrew Arnold testified that he felt God was going to set a fire in our hearts prior to the meeting & he felt the presence of God as fire powerfully in our midst, afterwards he said “the presence of God was so strong” .
“I really found the meeting to be a great source of blessing. And I felt a great sense of awakening like we are on the edge of so much more. If we press in and continue to seek God’s face I believe He wants to manifest Himself so much more.” Rita Mangomar
“I was very blesses at the prophetic destiny seminar. Loved the preaching which emphasised on character and the necessity of holy living. I encountered the refreshing out pouring of the holy spirit like rain flowing from the heavenly during the worship. The destiny questionnaires was authentic providing a safe environment to document talent, skills which were then unlocked to identify ministry gifting, direction and new purposes. Also for some to re-establish the workings of God in our lives and affirming his hand in our lives. I sensed a greater bonding as a result and a renewed excitement from participants.” Elaine Ajie
Note: Deborah is fulfilling her destiny: Glory be to God! as the LORD has over the years affirmed this identity and destiny to her personally and by way of prophetic words from renowned prophets.

A note from Deborah E. Nyamekye
I.A. Feedback from 2nd July Prophetic identity & destiny seminar (more feedback to come), first major event of God given ministry
B. Background to Events Ministry
II the Word of the Lord to me personally this morning,4th July
I. A.My first major event under Bearwitness-Forerunner Ministries Int. (BW-FM) is over, it was on 2nd July 2016 10-5pm called Rise-up,Thou Anointed and Favoured of God! (I)
It will be every quarter, next one is 1st Oct., of the same name and theme (Teaching/training Prophetic identity, destiny and Holiness, intercessory prayer, worship and prophecy ).
Note: The events will no longer be called Seminars, instead they will be referred to as “Maranatha Encounters Ministry (MEM) Gatherings”.
To God be the glory great things He has done!
God met us in such an awesome way as He is always true to His word, He did not disappoint.
Prior to the event on the Monday of the same week (last week) while praying with my prayer partner we saw fire in our midst at the event and sensed God would visit us with the fire of the Holy Spirit.
One of the delegates, a former work colleague, Pastor Andrew Arnold had posted a message and picture that morning of the Seminar on Facebook that He was on his way to support me. The picture had the following words “Set A fire down in my soul…I want more of you Lord”
This was confirmed by the type of attendees there with that heart’s cry of wanting more of God and His response ; the tangible yoke breaking, consuming fire presence of God’s Spirit, and at the same time Holy Spirit manifested as a gentle but powerful refresher of hearts and souls, so that many felt saturated with his presence. This reminded me of the vision I had early hours of Friday, the day before, of much rain/water pouring upon seated delegates in the sanctuary. It was a strong force of water/rain not coming from above but from the pulpit area upon the attendees. That is how I saw it. The power of God’s Spirit through the Word coming from the pulpit will do its work in the hearts, souls and bodies of all who were there. God did not disappoint.
They tangible presence was felt by all. One remarked how there was a sense of bonding among us even though many did not know one another. Only God can do that. This was not surprising as God’s presence can only be felt if it is welcomed; it was evident that those at the forefront of this event abide in God and live to obey God’s commands and have Reverential fear of Him and so surrender themselves as much as is humanly possible; I feel honoured to have been surrounded by such genuine and humble ministers of God whether bringing the message (Vernette John-Joiles & Elaine Ajie) or
sharing powerful testimonies and encouraging attendees: Dominique Oliva, Stefanie Menezes, Andrew Arnold or leading worship Elaine & Ephraim Ajei.
One young woman I conversed with in the lunch break said “This is church, I really feel I have come to church” and that she wished there was more of this kind of focused teaching on identity, destiny and holiness in churches. She was in a state of transition and praying to God for which church to attend.
A man who was on contract work in London from Scotland, when he saw the advert knew deep within that He had to come to this seminar. He said “I felt the LORD wanted me here. But my contract work came to an end and I had to go back so I wondered whether I should still come”. He did because he had sensed strongly the leading of the Lord.
For me that confirms that my prayer was answered – those who truly needed to be there would come. It was their appointment with the LORD, for He told me to start these seminars, so surely there are people out there for whom He has made an appointment in relation to the programme He put together right? This same man said to me at the end that he had been impacted and blessed and in his words the event was “very empowering”.
I am yet to get some more feedback, but I heard the following words repeated a number of times “empowering” and “inspiring”. People came with hungry hearts and God gave them what they came for.
The exercise I know God downloaded to me called “In Full Bloom” I suppose I will call a Prophetic Life Skills Tool from now on, as a sister in Christ when testifying about its worth in getting people in pairs to help them know the worth/wealth of what they had inside of them (gifting so, talents etc…) they had to offer, said “I am a coach, and I will have to say this is a great tool (she repeated “tool” a few times in her excitement) which I don’t think is even found in the secular world of work” she encouraged me to go to Pastors and church leaders and present it to them even get them to do the exercise first and then they can have it done in their congregations”.
I had similar feed back from others who said how the tendency often is for people to downplay their gifts/talents or abilities but this exercise serves to bring them out. People were encouraged through this exercise to motivate, inspire and encourage their partner.
I was pleased that someone used the word prophesy a number of times in relation to what they received from their partner (I never once used it when I explained the process).
I explained why I was pleased people have been enlightened to the power of the exercise after by saying (words to that effect) that “often times people use the word “prophetic” to describe someone they see as an elevated minister, however the exercise is among other things meant for Christians to know that as long as they have the Holy Spirit abiding inside of them, they fellowship with Holy Spirit, they are prophetic. We are all prophetic! Holy Spirit is the Spirit of prophecy, testimony of Jesus (Rev 19:10). The Holy Spirit is not only the power of God but knows and reveals (1Corinth. 2) The will, wisdom and mind of God to us. We must trust that He can use us to minister the will or desire of God for others to them.”
More feedback will be shared. I will also post sound and video recordings of teachings where people had recorded (we did not have any professional equipment for this, so not every aspect of the day as recorded)
B. Background to events Ministry: The event that launched this “Mother ministry” BW-FM Int. of all two other ministries (writing and events) was when I organised and led a Prayer & Prophecy team at Expovida, an annual Teaching and Worship Conference on Sept. 2013. We set up a canopy and prayed for and prophesied over people during the break times. I used the BW-FM name for the first time, and recall how God gave me a vision in the very early hours of the morning of the first day of the event in Sept 2013 of me looking in the mirror and written on it was Prophetess and I sensed God was telling me that this is who I am (I have had prophecies to the effect since 1994 and was at the time part of the prophetic ministry of Oasis Church, Colliers Wood since 2009, I was also the pioneer of their intercessory prayer ministry and lead Intercessory prayer coordinator of the same church since beginning of 2012-2013) those two conference days were an affirmation of this prophetic office and intercessory call of my life.
I also know that my calling with different streams is apostolic, God told me to write in 1994 in my studio flat in Geneva & confirmed it by a renowned prophet in 2000 at a conference 6 years later, an expansion of the same word I had received from God. After I heard from God to come to the UK in 2000 personally, a prophet at a conference confirmed “Geographic relocation” two months later “to a place where you will be more fruitful. You are a birther, a spiritual midwife, you will birth many things in the body of Christ”. 16 years on I testify that God is a God who is always faithful and brings His word to pass.
It is God who ordains not man. If you believe the Word of the Lord to you and through His prophets, partner with Him by faith and He will bring it to pass. My calling as “a spiritual midwife” is to help people stay on course to birth them into predestined identity and destiny. If but for the LORD Satan would have used circumstances and people to stamp on or thwart my calling, discourage me to the point of no return.
In relation to Expovida Prayer & Prophecy Team I led and organised in September 2013, many were blessed and we had great feedback, much of which was shared to the conference organisers who have me feedback.
I lived in Tooting Broadway then in 2013 it is not a coincidence that this 2nd July 2016 event was in a church building in Tooting about 15 mins walk from where I lived – I did not deliberately choose it because of that, I remembered attending a women’s breakfast there and liked the premises. My initial venue I thought was too expensive and I did not like the layout of the place and so I contacted TootingURC. Some time later I realised it was truly God’s will to go back there where once and for all obstacles of resistance in the spiritual realm to my breaking out and forth were declared overcome once and for all (this is an entire testimony for another time!!), where significant breakthrough were declared, God sovereignty took me to that same locality for my first major event, that is very telling …
Expovida annual conference serves mainly Spanish speaking churches across the UK, but with translation. The founders are from Honduras. I had a sense of being in the nations even though I was in London.
The two founders’ business TMC is the number one distributor of Spanish Christian books across the UK.
II. I don’t usually share all of the private words God speaks to me, however at this juncture in my life when I sense God wants me to introduce myself in more detail to people out there I feel compelled to do so (hence point I.B. as well.)
After my prayer time this morning, 4th July 2016, I saw a vision of a very comfortable sofa.
Then the Lord began to speak to me as I wrote
“A new chair, you are seated in a comfortable place in me, a place of my grace abounding on you. A place of refreshing, a place of advancement. I will use you in this era and in this time as I have not used many.
There are those who marvel at your elevation and fruit but do not know the years of sowing and heartache you have endured. It is a time of recompense, a time of restitution, a time of being filled so you can impart, so you can release many from the abyss where they contend with the enemy day and night.
Continue to use my Word as a sword, a sword to attack and to root out the falsehood embedded in hearts so deep, in thoughts through generations of falsehood even concerning my Word.
Sound the trumpet and proclaim not holding back. I have armed you for strength in the battle. I am with you always and know your heart ready to do my bidding.
I have projects to unfold, to excite your soul and those you engage with on my behalf.
Rest assured faithful one, those with you are more than those who are not.
You will never be alone. I have plans for you and plans to impart through you. Sound the trumpet in the land, use the axe at the root, uproot, pull down and rebuild says the Lord who has called you and raised you.” 4/07/2016
