Fear Not

God’s WORD is such comfort for us especially tonight after the shootings at the school in Parkland, FLA. Our God cares about every family involved in this horrific event. The parents, the students, all the school staff, the policemen and women…and even the parents and friends of this young man.

At a time like this we are very sad …solemn in fact. And yet, I’m hearing Holy Spirit say, “Fear Not” and “Let not your heart be troubled.” 

Tonight the news man said there are 18 shootings already this year. Then, he said there were 65 last year…and the lowest in several years was 2016 with 48. The first thing some will want if is stronger gun control..,or no guns…taken by force resulting in Marshall Law. More fear when good citizens become outlaws because they don’t give up their guns without a fight.

Still…I hear “Fear Not for I AM with you.

The news commentator even said that the numbers were a sign of the times.  Interesting that he should say such a thing…must be a Believer…because that would be found in Timothy regarding the Coming of our LORD!

So, today, we will begin with our 2nd wall of this temple of JOY:

Joshua 1: 9  Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.”

John 14: 27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.

Matthew 6: 34 Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. 

Isaiah 43: 1 But now thus says the LORD, he who created you, O Jacob, he who formed you, O Israel: “Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, you are mine.

Psalm 27: 1 The LORD is my light and my salvation— whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life— of whom shall I be afraid?

Thank You LORD for the blessing of the absence of fear as we lean on You…as we Trust in You as our defender and our protector.

If you are afraid that you are not sure where you would be if you died, today is the day to make sure. Confess your sins and like laying a blanket on a lamb…you are laying your sins on JESUS the Lamb of God. He takes them away from you like the lamb walking away. Say JESUS You are LORD. No longer my way. You are the Way and I will live for You until the end of my days in Jesus’ Name. Amen and Amen.

The Most Unreached! The 10/40 Window! February 6, 2013

I know I’m a teacher…but more than a teacher…I’m an eternal student!

I am always finding out about something new! I’m forever learning!

Hello…are any of you like me?

I mean, I knew that the Lord was calling me to India, but the more I research…I’m finding out that not only India, but that whole area of Asia, Africa, and the Middle East that is located between the 10 degree North and the 40 degree North latitudes…is made up of a huge area of land like 1/3 of the world…but has like 2/3 of all the peoples of the world.

Is that Amazing or what?

I knew that Hinduism was the main religion in India…and I knew that Buddhism was the main religion of China…and I knew that Islam was the main religion of the Middle East.

I did not know that these are the 3 major blocs of the 10/40 window.

All these religions preach or teach anti-Christ doctrine. I mean our LORD and Savior Jesus Christ brought good news…He set us free from the bondage of sin, sickness, and poverty.

The nations…all the mega-cities in these nations…are bound in poverty. The LORD became poor that we might be rich. He rejoices in the prosperity of His Saints!

As we give into the Kingdom, we come out of poverty!

When the LORD asked me to go to India…to feed His Sheep!…I was listening as He directed me to feed His Sheep! Sheep have a Shepherd…they are already saved…but need discipling in how to prosper!

Give and it shall be given unto you!

When you are poor … you think you can’t give…but God’s key to prosperity is giving out of our need!

Also occupying the Land…claiming every place I put my foot…them claiming everywhere they put their foot…the key to owning land…claiming Kingdom in the 10/40 window.

Praying the Word…as we pray the prayer blanket…commits Word to our hearts…that we not sin against God.

Praying the Word slays the enemy!

Praying the Word heals the flesh!!

I’m excited to go and I’m on my way…$925 toward the 4-5000 that I need!

Won’t you join us and send Women Who Pray to India?

Any gift is greatly appreciated!!

Thanks in advance!!

Our address is:
Women Who Pray
P. O. Box 1743
Dacula, GA 30019

 

Until the next time…

Happy New Year to Family and Friends of Women Who Pray 2013

Happy New Year!

How can it possibly be the year…2013??

The very number 2013 sounds sooo…well, it sounds so futuristic!!

I mean, I was born in 1949…the end of 1949…December 20, 1949.

My Mama always said I was her best Christmas present!!

I had my 63rd birthday just 12 days ago…

It’s not that I’m older than others…many are older than me…

People are in their 90’s and not only getting around…but golfing…or dancing…

Look at Mick Jagger!!

I do, however, represent the baby boomers…as I’m a late baby boomer…

My father was in the army during WWII, though he remained state side…

My father in-law fought in the Battle of the Bulge…

He was in the Invasion of Normandy…

My uncle fought the Japanese in the Pacific…

My sisters and parents…and my husband’s family…and the wonderful friends we grew up with in my high school…

We were brought up at the change over from segregation to integration…

We went to all white schools…and then, one day, a black boy, Lorenzo, joined us…

We were ecstatic…everyone wanted to be his friend…

Now, we shared public water fountains…and restrooms…

It was a new day!

Then, peers of ours…went off to the Vietnam War…

Some came back in a box…

There was the G.I. Movement…

There was Kent State University!

There were students taking over universities…

There were the black panthers…

There were hippies…

There was marijuana…

There was Woodstock…and free and open sex… and love children..

I can remember coming home to my mother’s house as a “hippy” look-alike…

I had a floppy leather hat and poncho…

I was barefoot with no make-up…

My hair was in “dog-ears”…

I was holding my baby…only a couple of months old…

I remember my Mama cried…

I didn’t get it…then…but I get it now…

I’m sure that she wasn’t sure how far I had slipped away from my JESUS!!

My Mama was a Bible Teacher…a Baptist Sunday School teacher…

Daddy taught a Sunday School class…and was a deacon…but Mama…

Known as Baba to her grandchildren..well, she just walked to a different drummer…

Mama came to know Jesus as a teen-ager…led by her Sunday School teacher…

Her Daddy took her to church as a child…her Mama not getting saved until she was an adult…

But, her Daddy began to drink…and had it not been for that Sunday School teacher…things would have been different…

Mama taught young married women for many years…and many of those dear women called themselves her “out of the womb” daughters…

I can hear them until yet…How dear all of them were to us…her daughters!!!

In later years, Mama and Daddy…Baba and PawPaw led the 2nd Seniors at the church they attended…

I am very blessed and thank God for this heritage! My Mama’s grandfather was a Hardshell Baptist Preacher!!

I could give you many more details…but trying to focus on what the LORD has laid on my heart…

I know that…though I’m 63 years young…I know that I’m embarking on an extraordinary adventure…

All the news broadcasters are speaking of us going over the cliff…but I have the greatest peace about the whole thing…that can only be God!

Well, if we go over a cliff…so be it! Our God is at the helm! It is He that is Captain of the Hosts!!!

He’s manning the ship that is heading over the cliff…the waterfall…

My Trust is in HIM!!! I place my trust in no man!! No bank!! No institution!! No body!!!

I Trust in God!!! It is He that has made me…and not me …myself…

I cannot add a cubit!!

In me…I can do nothing!

In HIM…I can do all things!!

I have a challenge for you!

I want you to join me in this challenge!

I choose to be enthusiastic!!

Joel Osteen preached, Sunday, December 31st, that “enthusiasm” is a Greek word…that theos meaning “God” and that it meant filled with God!

Here’s a link to confirm what Joel said…http://www.thefreedictionary.com/enthusiasm..

Well, here’s your challenge…

I don’t know where you are in your walk with Jesus…

I don’t know if you walked closer in the past…

Or if you’ve ever known Him at all…

I ask that you fill yourself with God…Jehovah God, that is…

The Word declares to us over and over that we rejoice!!

We’re told to rejoice in all things!!

Well, I don’t know about you…but I don’t feel like rejoicing all the time!

It’s hard to think no evil…

It’s hard to love my enemies…those that persecute me…and torment me…

But, my God says to count it all joy!!

Let me share with you what I believe I’ve received from the LORD just recently…

When the disciples came back to JESUS…having gone forth…by twos…healing the sick…casting out demons…etc…they were amazed! The were awed!!!!

Why?

Because they were walking in the same authority Jesus did! But Jesus said…” Not to marvel at that!”

He said to marvel that their names were written in Heaven!

That makes sense!!

We don’t rejoice in the evil…or the bad times…

We rejoice that our names are written in Heaven!

How wonderful is this?

What was hard to do or understand…is now clear!

I rejoice that my name is written in Heaven!!

Woo Hoo!!!

Until the next time…

Teddi!!!!!

Be Anxious for Nothing…Just How Do We Do That? December 17, 2012

I was challenged to memorize Philippians 4: 6, today, by the leader of our group that is reading through the Bible together on line.

We were told to memorize it. This is one of the many verses that I cling to often…it is very familiar to me…but it has been a challenge to live by it.

I wrote the following comment to her and the rest of the group this morning…knowing that whatever we are bearing fruit in…can be picked.

We can share what we are walking in…

Jill, for the verse to memorize. I’m thinking like Kelly said above…I know this verse…but…
so many times, we have read…even memorized the scripture…and still struggle to apply it.

I may only be speaking to me…but I’m turning 63 this week…and I’ve been hiding the Word in my heart since I was very young…GA’s…BTU…S.S…and as an adult now for many years I pray the Word daily…much Word…and, yet, without training my mind as Paul tells us in Philippians 4: 6-9…I can’t get it to work for me…I will still fret…

So, I’m sharing how I do it…

6 If I’m anxious for nothing, and if I… in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let my requests be made known to God; 7 then, the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard my heart and mind through Christ Jesus. (Notice, I’m changing the 2nd person pronoun to a 1st person pronoun…I changed you to me and my).

Then Paul gives us verse 8…showing us how to do this!!!

8 Finally, Teddi, whatever things are true according to the Word, whatever things are noble according to the Word, whatever things are just according to the Word, whatever things are pure according to the Word, whatever things are lovely according to the Word, whatever things are of good report according to the Word , if there is any virtue according to the Word, and if there is anything praiseworthy according to the Word— then, you, Teddi, meditate on ONLY these things.

Woo Hoo!!! I think only on what God says to think on…and don’t let my mind go to the other places.

(This takes practice…that ole’ mind…that self or flesh…will stray. Scary thoughts…or mean thoughts…or just lying thoughts will spring up…if I don’t practice staying my mind on God).

Now, this morning, verse 9 blessed my socks off!!

9 The things which you learned and received and heard and saw in me, these do, and the God of peace will be with you.

Paul left this verse for us because he practiced what he preached. We can’t see him except through the Word that he left for us. Jesus in Paul the Hope of Glory!

As, Bible prayer warrior and Bible teacher…loving the Word…abiding daily in the Word…the LORD said share this morning…so, here I am.

Most of you don’t see me…only a few of us have that opportunity…but as Jill’s new-found Aunt Teddi… know that verse 9 is coming through me as I receive it this morning…

What you hear from me this morning, do…and the peace of God will be with you.

I give you the peace that is in me…as I’m truly going through some trials and tribulations…but His Peace…does indeed surpass all understanding…as verse 7 says…and I walk in that peace…and that peace I give to you…

Love you Jill and all you shinegirls!

Merry Christmas from Aunt Teddi

Now, the LORD, speaks of planting seed…He speaks of watering and pruning…and He commands us to bear fruit…more fruit…and much fruit.

Jesus in my heart is the seed of LOVE…that bears all of the gifts of the Spirit…was just taught this the past few weeks in the class I am in on Wednesday nights.

If someone receives love from me…they have picked the fruit I’m bearing…

An amazing concept…huh?

I pray you all receive the peace that I have shared…pick that precious fruit of peace…and walk in it!

Until the next time….

Teddi

A Holy Nation December 4, 2012

I know you might be thinking that I’m referring to a nation that we know…

We pray, 2 Chronicles 7: 14: If my people, who are called by my name, will humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then, I will hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

We salute our flag, and we refer to America, we say, …one nation under God.

Today, while praying for Israel, and adding some new Psalms that we’ve been asked to pray with our Jewish brethren…it all just seemed to be jumping off the page.

We pray that we are the children of Abraham…we pray that David is our Captain…praying the Word daily quickens the Word…makes it alive and moving and going strong…

So aware of who I am today!! I’m not just Teddi Holt…a Christian…who says my prayers at night before bed…or occasionally when I have time.

Training in praying the Word had made it possible to pray more of the Word every day. It is just sooo amazing….

We began praying Isaiah 52, 53, 54, 55 about 8 years ago. We have added Isaiah 35, 59:20, about 1/2 of 60, and the 1st few verses of 61, and all of 62. We pray a Psalm of the day, as well as Psalm 18, 20, 33,91, 100, 112, 8 verses of 119, 121, 122, 128, 130, 133; John 14: 21, 23 & 24, and Galatians 2:20.

We pray those chapters but much more in the Prayer Blanket opening and the Stormie Omartian’s and Beth Alves’ books. We are truly demolishing strongholds everyday.

Today, after all was said and done, the LORD just spoken into my spirit…

We are a nation…we are not many nations…we the Church…the Bride of Christ…are a nation!!

This nation is made up of all the peoples of the earth who serve the ONE TRUE GOD!! JESUS is our LORD and Savior. He is King of Kings!!! He is LORD of Lords!!!!!

We are crucified with Christ…we no longer live…JESUS CHRIST lives in us!!!

The LORD let me see our nation…we’re of all the races…all nations…both genders…all ages…

This Kingdom…this nation that we are…is ruled by King Jesus!!

Discipling the nations…teaching them to observe what we’ve been commanded…

The older women teaching the younger women…

The modeling…

When we see Jesus, we shall be like Him…

Follow me as I follow Christ…

The first fruit of many brethren…

All this Word began to come up inside me…

As I shared with my prayer partner for oh soooo many years…a warrior that I have prayed with every day for going on 10 years…she heard the words of a song …we are a holy nation

The words are listed below, but we weren’t able to find the tune she was singing…

However, we did find two wonderful videos of 1 Peter 2:9 being sung…

For You Are A Chosen Generation from 1 Peter 2:9
You are a chosen generation
A royal priesthood, a holy nation
A peculiar people
To show forth the praises of Him
Who has called you out of darkness
Out of darkness
Out of darkness
Into His marvelous light
Into His marvelous light
Sing Hallelujah!
Praise ye the Lord!
Sing Hallelujah
And show forth the Praises of Him
Who has called you out of darkness
Out of darkness
Out of darkness
Into His marvelous light
Into His marvelous light
You are a chosen generation
A royal priesthood, a holy nation
A peculiar people
To show forth the praises of Him
Who has called you into freedom
Into freedom
Into freedom
Into His marvelous light
Into His marvelous light

Sing Hallelujah!
Praise ye the Lord!
Sing Hallelujah
And show forth the Praises of Him

Who has called you into freedom
Into freedom
Into freedom
Into His marvelous light
Into His marvelous light

You Are a Chosen Generation by Steve Green.wmv

Aftermath of Election Week for USA and the Church November 9, 2012

Very moved in my spirit over this election…very still and quiet after hearing the LORD say, “Be Still and Know that I AM God.”

We are nearing the end of the year of Divine Order…2012.

I’ve seen the LORD move in some marvelous ways in my behalf and in behalf of His children…

Strongholds have tumbled! Miracles have taken place!

I know that I wanted this election to go differently…

I wanted the United States to have one more chance…

Like the last verse… that has been added to the Battle Hymn of the Republic…added by Don Moen…says…

We can almost hear the trumpet sound, the Lord’s return is near;
There are still so many people lost, His Message they must hear;
Father, give us one more moment, one more day, just one more year-
While God is marching on…

But after singing this verse…my heart’s question was…

Will it do any good, LORD? If you give us one more moment?… one more day? …one more year?…

Will we use it to Your Glory! I mean if the election goes our way…the way of the conservative?…the way of the Christian?…

Will we be about Your business??? Will we????

I stand with many other intercessors for this nation…in quite a quandry…

We’re a bit shocked at the number of evengelicals who voted for a man who is:

1. Pro-abortion
2. Pro-gay marriage
3. Anti-Israel
4. Pro-one-world-government…UN and all the treaties
5. Anti-Constitutional rights…especially 1 and 2

I could go on…

It’s true that the other man is a member of a cult…the mormon religion does not believe Jesus Christ is God…but he stood on a pro-God platform…while our president stands on an anti-God platform…

The line has been drawn…not between north and south…or democrat and republican…

God drew the line and said, “Who is on the LORD’s side?”

The Church stood divided…and a house divided won’t stand…

The LORD has prayed that we be ONE as He and the Father are ONE…

I’m concerned at what this nation is going to face for that to happen…

Many of the Church do not know that we are of the seed of Abraham through Jesus…and that we can’t be anti-Israel and be on the LORD’s side.

We can’t be pro-muslim and be pro-God at the same time. We can’t side with the left and right at the same time…

Won’t happen…

I’m very quiet right now…under the shadow of the Almighty…in the Secret Place…

That is my abiding place…

It is my residence.

Until the next time…

I Stand Amazed at How Much You Love Me, LORD! November 2, 2012

LORD,

I stand amazed at Your love and Your grace! You have truly poured it out on me today. I’ve been very quiet lately, as many things are going on in my life and with those I love and hold so dear! Whew!!

I have wanted to be part of making everything better for my husband, children and grandgirls…and my friends. I’ve been placed by you in a quiet spot…a bit under the weather…but knowing the power of prayer.

Praying more fervently over our adult children…that You pour out Your Spirit on these adult children that we committed to You a long time ago…and being fully aware that You are moving in their lives.

You’ve been so precious to remind me over and over that I can’t add one cubit…not one hair…but You can! What is impossible with and for me is possible with God! That I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me!

A huge storm hit the east coast…prophesied by Chuck Pierce several months ago…and as I’ve prayed about it…You have spoken to my heart…Be Still! and Know!! I AM God!!! I thank You, LORD, for setting my prayers straight…almost by the day…to wield and to do Your good pleasure. It’s not my will but Yours that is important!

I look at the signs being shown to us every day…and I marvel that You have been so patient with us, LORD! I do ask that those who have not returned to You, yet…that those who are in sin right now…but somehow think it will be ok…I thank You for showing me to pray the hedge of thorns around them that You speak of in Hosea…that they will follow after but not find what they are looking for and will return to You, LORD!!

You are directing our paths as we make our plan every day…including how we pray…and how we praise!!

There’s a Holy Hush on it all, LORD…a Holy Hush.

I just want to thank You for what You have just done in my life as a praying grandmother. I praise You for making the crooked way straight…for I could not add one cubit…but you could…and have! You have answered my prayer and I give thanks!! Woo Hoo!!!!

Glory to God in the Highest!!!!

We’ve not seen anything, yet, LORD!!! The Best is Yet to Come!!!

I’m in anticipation LORD…awaiting Your arrival…preparing as I pray…

Thanks, LORD, for all those who’ve prayed with me for my family and this ministry! Thanks, Saints of God!!

In Jesus’ Name,

Amen and Amen

Until the next time…

Blessed by Beth Moore

I am re-posting from May 20, 2011:

I knew when I began this Bible Study – it was a God thing! I had already done the Believing God study with a group of wonderful ladies, all former teachers, that I’ve been studying the Word with for many years. We had done the study by cd instead of dvd. We had our books and the leader material, but we had cd’s so that we heard Beth, instead of seeing her.

One day, my good friend from high school shot me a message on fb, asking me if my church checked out Beth Moore materials to other churches. Someone had told her they did, and she was verifying with me. She asked if I knew who and how. Because I assisted on Wednesday nights with the ESL (English is the second language) class, and our leader was the Church Librarian, I needed only to email her for the information. After finding out the materials were available, and there was a choice of different teachings, my friend chose Believing God.

On the very day, that they were to begin that evening, she messaged me to thank me again, and I made a simple reply that I wished I could be there. She said, “Come on!” I did, and it has been fantastic. I did have to miss a night and will miss the next one, but I have been walking in what I’ve received so far. I’m here to share with you last night’s message. It is something else!!

Beth called this lesson, and it is the 6th one in the homework/notebook, the “Make it or break it lesson!” Mighty Warrior?? Or Not???

Hebrews 4: 12a (Amplified) says, The Word that God speaks is alive and full of power, making it active, operative, and effective…This whole Bible Study has been about us taking our promised land! This week’s study, is the 4th statement of pledge for us..God’s Word is alive and active in me.

I know people around me and even in this ministry, whether here near me, on the phone, or on fb, talking to friends, family, and friends of this ministry around the US and across the globe…people get tired or bored with me saying that the answer to all our problems is a prayer problem. I say, Pray the Word everyday! And, I have a tool, The Prayer Blanket, in order to do exactly that myself. I also have an electronic copy to send to any and all!

Beth says, “Take to heart the first and foremost equipping for success in the promised land is the Word in our mouths.” How exciting for me to hear this confirmation from another called of God Prayer Warrior – a writer and teacher, plodding along in a different place, much better known than me. She, along with Stormie Omartian, Beth Alves, and Germaine Copeland all pray the Word about everything! In order to do that, we must practice the Word of God – we must train in and on the Word!

In bold print, Beth has written How to Become Armed and Dangerous! She then says, We, the Church, the individual Believer, should be the devil’s worst nightmare.

She says, “Without exception, the most powerful built-in instrument God has given us is our mouth.” 2 Cor. 4:13b declares, …I believe, therefore, I speak. We know that we are made in the image of God. Beth reminds us, “God’s Word is impotent.” Impotent means, “All powerful!” Then, she says, “Our words are potent, which means powerful!” I’m reminded here, that Life and Death are in the power of the tongue. We can speak Life or Death to any circumstance.

Beth reminds us that if we use these God-given instruments inappropriately then we are effectively causing ourselves to not reach our promised land – the abundant life. We, God’s creation – and not only His creation but His Church – His Bride – His Family – His children – complain, criticize, judge, curse, and use our mouths inappropriately . If we all used them appropriately, we’d never be defeated, distressed, fearful, depressed, angry, bitter, disappointed, unforgiving, etc.

For reasons ultimately known to God alone, Beth says, God has ordained that spoken words carry a power, authority, and effectiveness that exceed words we simply think. Speak means to speak out – aloud – even boldly. We are not to speak the Word in our mind – our enemy, the devil, cannot read our mind.

Whispering is not boldness. I loved this, because when we pray the Prayer Blanket, we pray aloud! Beth speaks of accountability – the importance of speaking aloud with each other – confession – and agreement – being so important! We pray with several each morning. We encourage each other and others to join us as we declare the Word over the day – over our tent – speaking things that are not as though they are.

Jesus even declare to the devil, “It is written!” If He did that and He’s the firstfruit of many brethren – if we are His disciples (followers) – then we declare the Word (what is written!)
Logos is all the Word. Rhema is specific Word. We speak specific Word to each disease, and each circumstance! Glory! Just as our Jesus did and in us still does!

I am reminded at how many times I hear we are overcomers. Revelation speaks to the overcomer in each of the churches of Asia. How do we overcome? We overcome by the Blood of the Lamb and the Word of our testimony! We are overcomers by what we speak!!

Again our 5-statement Pledge of Faith is:

1. God is who He says He is.
2. God can do what He says He can do.
3. I am who God says I am.
4. I can do all things through Christ.
5. God’s Word is alive and active in me!
(This is where the rubber meets the road).

I declare with Beth, my sister in Christ, and fellow Prayer Warrior:
We are Mighty Warriors! We believe all of the above! We believe (inhale), therefore, we speak (exhale). We overcome by the Blood of the Lamb (Jesus Christ) and the word of our testimony! Thanks be to God!
Amen and Amen!

Until the next time….

Teddi
