Revelation 12:9-11 ~
“And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.”

” The Spirit of the Lord God is upon me;
because the Lord hath anointed me to preach good tidings unto the meek;
he hath sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives,
and the opening of the prison to them that are bound;
To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord,
and the day of vengeance of our God;
to comfort all that mourn;
To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion,
to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning,
the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;
that they might be called trees of righteousness,
the planting of the Lord, that he might be glorified.
And they shall build the old wastes,
they shall raise up the former desolations,
and they shall repair the waste cities,
the desolations of many generations.
And strangers shall stand and feed your flocks,
and the sons of the alien shall be your plowmen and your vinedressers.
But ye shall be named the Priests of the Lord:
men shall call you the Ministers of our God:
ye shall eat the riches of the Gentiles,
and in their glory shall ye boast yourselves.
For your shame ye shall have double;
and for confusion they shall rejoice in their portion:
therefore in their land they shall possess the double:
everlasting joy shall be unto them.
For I the Lord love judgment,
I hate robbery for burnt offering;
and I will direct their work in truth,
and I will make an everlasting covenant with them.
And their seed shall be known among the Gentiles,
and their offspring among the people:
all that see them shall acknowledge them,
that they are the seed which the Lord hath blessed.
I will greatly rejoice in the Lord,
my soul shall be joyful in my God;
for he hath clothed me with the garments of salvation,
he hath covered me with the robe of righteousness,
as a bridegroom decketh himself with ornaments,
and as a bride adorneth herself with her jewels.
For as the earth bringeth forth her bud,
and as the garden causeth the things that are sown in it to spring forth;
so the Lord God will cause righteousness and praise to spring forth
before all the nations.”
Greetings my brothers and sisters in Christ. I felt I needed to share this testimony with you today and to encourage you that through ALL of the horrors that are going to continue to unfold around the globe, as the forces of darkness rise, we WILL see amazing blessings from our Heavenly Father as well. HE is going to bless us in the midst of the storms, so HE can show who truly is of Him and belongs to Him. The greatest blessing?
HIS PRESENCE UPON US AND WITH US.
Will it be difficult? Absolutely. None of us can really imagine how tragic it’s going to be as we watch things unfold that we couldn’t believe we would see. BUT THERE IS GOOD NEWS: GOD IS IN CONTROL, no matter what. We MUST cling to the Truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, never giving up or giving in to the dark forces that want to destroy ALL humanity.
Here’s my testimony of Beauty:
When I lived up in Canada, I owned a beautiful Thoroughbred mare, called Bella. She reminded me so much of the horse called Black Beauty, found in the novel written by Anna Sewell.
The day came when I was prompted to give her and all of her brand new tack (e.g., saddle, bridle, etc.,) to a young lady who dreamed of becoming a horse trainer, but didn’t have the funds to buy a horse. The “test” before me was this: do I love the LORD more than my horse? Will I obey His leading, even though it would cause me pain? Will I bless one of His daughters, without expecting any financial compensation?
With grief and tears, I had to obey the LORD, who gave His life for me, that I would be reconciled to the Heavenly Father and face an eternity of joy, peace and LOVE beyond measure. That testing happened sometime in either 2014 or 2015. It was yet another “dying to self” I had to go through during my time in Canada.
Fast forward to October 2017. I became connected to Destiny Youth Ranch (info link below), which is only about 6.5 miles from our farm. I participated in one of their family retreats. The first day I arrived to volunteer, I was told that a horse had been prayerfully picked out for me. This horse, I was told, is the most spiritually sensitive horse in the entire herd. When she starts acting agitated, they take note, because something surely is wrong and prayers/intercession must be launched.
The name of the horse?
That’s right, folks, BLACK BEAUTY. I think my jaws dropped in amazement when I found that out. It brought back memories of when I was around 6 years old when I was given my first record player and several 45s. In that stack of records, there was a children’s song about BLACK BEAUTY. I played that over and over and over and over again. I knew all of the words by heart. I yearned to have a horse like Black Beauty, but that was not possible financially or living in the heart of the city of St. Louis.
YES WOW!!! There standing right before me was BLACK BEAUTY. I started grooming her, but soon had to stop as I quietly felt the tears rolling down my cheeks, knowing the Heavenly Father was blessing me in a way that only HE knew. The tears are even rolling down my cheeks right now as I’m typing up this testimony.
OH THE LOVE OF THE FATHER. . . HE knows the desires of our heart, for if we truly love and obey Him, He places those desires within our heart to one day fulfil them.
This testimony gets better, folks, because you see . . . Today I own Black Beauty. She has actually become my “prayer partner”; if she is agitated, I know I have to go in ramped-up prayer mode. I see a visible change in her when I also feel the spiritual breakthrough. It’s absolutely amazing.
I do want to share something else with you to pray about:
The Father has placed on my heart to have a gathering of people, who feel the urgency of the times we are in right now and want to hear what the LORD is sharing through His people. I had to prayerfully find out the when and the where. I was prompted to have it “before the Ides of March” and it absolutely had to be at Destiny Youth Ranch (info link below). After more prayer, this is when this gathering will be:
Friday, March 2 and Saturday, March 3, 2018
I don’t have the times this is going to start yet, but think it will likely be an evening potluck meal, followed by a gathering/meeting.
I believe ALL who feel led to be here, will also have something to share or do when here. Also, to expect to receive something from the Holy Spirit. I believe this is also a prophetic picture of “stepping into our Destiny” in Christ, which is why I felt this must absolutely happen at Destiny Youth Ranch.
What this won’t be: a same ole, same ole “conference” (UGGG!!!). I could NOT stomach that and would NOT do it. I have been truly petitioning the Father that He MUST show up, or let me cancel this because it would be a waste of time if He wasn’t going to be tangibly here since He prompted me to do this. Otherwise, it will be like Charlie Brown’s teacher, just another “blah, blah, blah. . . Conference”. So, now you know a little bit about how I feel about this (and yes, it’s okay to chuckle here . . . I was feeling a bit bratty, but truly do not want to do this, unless HE is going to bless us with His presence).
I also believe the Heavenly Father is stirring up His people all over the globe to have similar gatherings. So, please pray about whether or not you feel led to be here, or if you feel led to have a similar gathering where you live.
If you do feel led to be here, please know this is more of a “roughing it” environment (think “camping”). There will be horses here to ride on the trail at some point in the two days, so you’ll be able to enjoy that as well if you want. There is an indoor arena, so we can ride inside if the weather is not good.

Psalm 27:13-14 ~
“I would have despaired unless I had believed that I would see the goodness of the Lord
In the land of the living.
Wait for the Lord;
Be strong and let your heart take courage;
Yes, wait for the Lord.”
