Washington D.C.

Preaching it from the Nation's Capitol steps in Washington D.C on July 4th, 2011.


Hi everyone!!
  I hope that everyone had a great start to 2012, and that you all got rested after the holidays. We had a fantastic month. Exciting and adventurous as always and are very excited to enter into February.
  What, I want to share with you what the Lord has been speaking to me since the month of September 2011. What I'm going to share is not meant to be on the negative side, but rather looked at with hope and a promise which is Jesus Christ. For years, Ben and I have had such a great anticipation about something HUGE and exciting coming. We've been anticipating it every year. And every year we kept saying "it's coming, it's coming".   The question was, "what was that something"?
  In September of 2011 the Lord began giving me a series of dreams and prophetic signs all around me. As I talked with fellow believers, they as well were having very similar dreams and experiences. So I began pressing into God and asking Him about these dreams and "signs" that He was giving me. As I pressed in, what He began to reveal to me what exciting and fascinating! He began showing me the times that we would be entering into in the coming year of 2012. Now, it doesn't take a rocket scientist to look at the condition of our world to know and realize that we are in the end times of biblical prophecy. However, to know it but then have God reveal it, are two different things.
  As I pressed into to the Lord, He revealed to me some signs in the Heavenlies. Daniel 6:27 says that "He works signs and wonders in Heaven and on earth". Now remember, there is a distinct difference between "astronomy" (which is the science that deals with the material universe beyond the earths atmosphere) and "astrology" (which is a form of a god to predict your day and future etc.) There is only one God of the universe, and that is Jesus Christ.
   Prior to Him revealing this revelation that I will share with you in a moment, God was speaking to His people about 11-11-11. After pressing into the Lord, I believe that that specific date was the emergence of what I'm going to share. Hopefully I haven't lost you yet. :-) I was meditating on a dream that He had given me that had showed me to look at the solar and planetary system for a "sign". He reminded me of an app that I have on my phone that you can literally look at all of the different constellations.With this you can see the different planets and stars and their positioning. With this program you can skip ahead to a date in the past or the future to see where the positioning of  the constellations, planets, moon etc. will be positioned. Our solar system is very systematical and also very precise and mathematical. The Holy Spirit told me to look at the constellation "Virgo". When I went there and looked, what I found astounded me! I saw that on 11-11-11 at 11am, "Saturn" was literally birthed from Virgos womb! I knew immediately that this was a sign of something. Saturn was placed between Virgos feet. So, I decided to do some research on Saturn and found that it is a pagan worship planet and is worshiped by satanists and occultists. It is also the 6th planet from the sun, and the number 6 is the number of man. I was completely blown away by what I was seeing. I continued praying and asking the Holy Spirit to bring me to scripture to back up what I was seeing. As I prayed, He whispered Revelations 13. Now, this chapter in revelations is about the 42 months that the antichrist is given authority, but also the New World Order, and the different kingdoms. Now I know there are things that need to happen in prophecy before this happens, but I believe that we have entered into the time of the end. The time where you will see the antichrist setting up his kingdom. 2012 is the marker for this!
  Now, the great news is, is that God will ALWAYS do somethinng bigger  and greater than satan. He is the God and the creator of the universe! We are about to experience the largest outpouring of God's glory and Holy Spirit ever seen before in the history of mankind. For those of you that are walking with the Lord, and are in "relationship" with him this will be the greatest time in all of history. However, for the lukewarm Christian (Rev 3:16) and for those not walking with the Lord, this will be some of the worst times. Please make sure you're on the right side of the tracks...with Jesus.
  Since receiving this revelation, I have also had it confirmed through many other prophetic voices, including the prophetic ministry of Kim Clement. God will always confirm His word first through His prophets.
  So loved ones, take heed to this word. Where are you with God? Do you know Him? Do you talk with Him and walk with Him? He wants to have you on such a deeper level because He loves you. Dont let guilt and shame of your past keep you from Him. Don't let unforgiveness keep you in more bondage and separated from experiencing all that Heaven has to offer you. Jesus also said that in order to be forgiven, one also must forgive. It would be horrible to have received Jesus into your heart, but because of unforgiveness, you would not be allowed to enter into the Gates of that glorious place that we call Heaven  Hell is just as real of a place as Heaven. The bible says that the only way to the Father is through the Son Jesus Christ. John 14:6 says "Jesus said  to him, I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me". When you die, whoever owns your soul is who comes for you. I love you all too much to let that happen. Yes, even if we've never met, I still Love you. I declare an abundance of blessings upoon each and every person reading this, and that the veil of religious deception would be removed off their eyes, so that they can live in the fullness of God. Bless their lives abundantly that they may succeed and prosper and that the gospel of Jesus Christ would be spread throughout the whole earth! Be blessed!

re-cap of 2011

Hello All!
  Whew, what a year 2011 was! Its been a while since we've blogged and I want to catch you all up to speed and also to share with you what the Lord has been speaking for 2012.
  Since my last blog in March of 2011, little did we know, how much our lives were going to change. The last weekend of May,we received a phone call from Ben's 88 year old great aunt Roberta. She was calling with an invitation/proposition phone call. An invitation to be part of one of the greatest outpouring of the Spirit that has ever been in history. It was an invitation to join John and Jolene Hamill with Lamp lighter ministries in Washington D.C. for the ushering in of the "Third Great Awakening". The last awakening before Jesus Christ returns. We knew this was an opportunity of a lifetime, but still needed to be decided with great prayer. We told her we would pray about it and get back to her. So, Ben and I took 24 hours to pray together, and separately to hear what the Holy Spirit would say. Well, 24 hours later Ben and I came back together to discuss what the Lord had spoken to each of us. The word was the same, and the word was this: Matthew 19:21 "If you would be perfect, go, sell what you possess and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in Heaven; and come, follow me". Well, for us Crazy people, this was a NO BRAINER! Now most people were caught by surprise and thought that this was a new word for us, and to be honest were a little worried. Since 2006 the Lord began telling us to downsize. So with each move, the downsizing came. Little by little it came, or should I say went. Then in the summer of 2009 a great sense of urgency came to really start getting rid of more stuff. Long story short, we obeyed the Lord and in about one weeks time, had sold and gotten rid of about 90% of our stuff. Wow!! How liberating this felt to not be attached to all of this "stuff" anymore! Praise you Jesus for FREEDOM!!
  So on June 29th we embarked on a road trip to Washington D.C.! Ben, Denise, Cedar, Hunter, Aunt Roberta and her assistant CaMara. When we got back east, we went to all of the different civil war sites and broke covenant with the spirit of baal, (idolatory, slavery) and made new covenant with God. This was very important as all of this work was being done in the spirit realm, and had to take place for the ushering in of the third great awakening. What an honor it was to be with these select individuals doing such important work for the Kingdom of God!
  Another highlight of the trip was the fact that Aunt Roberta had a very special oil lamp that was used in the great revival that happened in Topeka, Kansas in 1901 and in Houston, Texas in 1905. This was one of the original lamps used in those revivals, and she sensed such an urgency by the Holy Spirit to have it lit during these events that took place with Lamp lighter ministries. John and Jolene knew that it was a fulfillment of a prophecy given over the event! How awesome is our God!!
  Well, the event was a success, and we headed back west after staying with some new friends in Maryland on the Atlantic Ocean. We made a stop for a few weeks in Montana while my (Denise) oldest brother got married. Ben went back on to Washington to do his high school leadership camp at Cispus while the kids and I stayed an extra week for a total of 3 weeks. My mom and dad drove us back to Washington to meet up with Ben. They headed back to Montana while Ben, myself and the kids headed up to Port Angeles to perform his cousin Reba's wedding. From there we headed to the canoe journeys that were held at the Swinimish reservation and sold our jewelry at our booth and had the opportunity to minister to many that traveled through our tent. God was always good and ALWAYS showed up!
  From there we traveled to Spokane to speak at Fruitland family camp. What a great time that was and spent lots of time down at the river during our breaks and had lots of wonderful fellowship with new friends. While we were there we met a young woman named Danaye from the Makah tribe in Neah Bay, Washington. We made an instant Holy Spirit connection and the Lord told us to invite her to come with us. We asked and she said yes, so from there we traveled up to the Lummi reservation in Bellingham, Washington to speak and help facilitate a youth camp. God was so awesome and saw lots of little ones give their hearts to the Lord. So, so awesome!
  Since then we've done some more traveling,started a home church at the Nisqually reservation, and have  rested our feet for a bit here in Olympia. A wonderful couple that we know offered their one bedroom basement apartment to us for rent, and its been a wonderful place and it has been a very sweet experience, not just for Ben and I but also for our kids. The Lord has shown us great favor for the sacrifice we've made.
  About 2 months ago Danaye began feeling the Lord calling her into full time ministry with Crazy Faith. We took time to pray about it and felt tremendous peace. So starting January 7th, 2012 we will have our first intern. She will be living with us in our tiny apartment, but know that there is a great reward in obedience. We are believing the Lord for a large home that will suit all of our needs. We are declaring that it will be exactly what we want, and that we will pay cash for it!! Please join us in prayer for this!

  We love you all! Stay tuned, as I have the word of the year from the Lord, and also some exciting insight He has been showing me! Its so exciting, and the time we've all been waiting for!

Attention prayer warriors!

  Well, God has been so faithful in His provisions. Beginning before Thanksgiving, we entered into a season of blessings. After the holiday, Ben resigned from his job because God was calling us into full time ministry. The day after he resigned, major blessings began rolling in. WoW! This is what we've been waiting for. I mean who's not right? It seems like we're all always waiting for our financial breakthrough. Anyways, God was waiting for us to let go of what we had and step out in Faith into the call He had on our lives before we could step into those blessings that were so long awaited. Thats been 3 months ago and lots has happened in that short time frame and we feel so blessed. Because we are relying on our Faith in the Lord to provide, we are looking for people to partner with us in prayer for continued provisions. We know that He will,  but its always good to have a good prayer network. Thank you all again for your support on this journey we call "Crazy Faith". We love each and every one of you. Lord, I declare many many blessings on each and every person reading this. That it would be more than enough! God bless!!

  I want to stir your hearts and thoughts and your spirit man today. Let me share some passages with you. Hebrews 5:11-14 of whom we have much to say, and hard to explain, since you have become dull of hearing. For though by this time you ought to be teachers, you need someone to teach you again the first principles of  the oracles of God; and you have come to need milk and not solid food. For everyone who partakes only of milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, for he is a babe. But solid food belongs to those who are of full age, that is those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.

  This message is for the body of Christ. Its time to wake up, and start taking a stand and take our country back in the ways of the Lord. People WAKE UP! Its time to wake up. What this passage is talking about is for the many who have been saved for years but are still walking with the Lord like a baby. For the people going to church every Sunday getting fed the word of God, but not doing anything about it. Are you sharing with people what Jesus has done for you? Do you know what your spiritual gifts are? Are you growing in them? People, there is a sense of urgency. Time is short before the Lords return. Are you ready? Do you think just because you gave your heart to Jesus 20 years ago but are still living in the ways of the world that you will truly be saved? Revelation 3:15-16 "I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. " So then, because you are lukewarm and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth." YIKES FOLKS! I would not want the Lord to vomit me out of His mouth because I am lukewarm. Are you lukewarm? Do you know where your final destination is going to be? We have a choice. I pray that we all make the right one. Love you all. Have a blessed day!!

Schedule for March

  God is doing so many amazing things lately. We feel so blessed and honored that He has chosen us for such an important job of soul winning. I am especially proud of my husband and how far he has come in his personal walk with the Lord. And I am forever grateful to the Lord for the restoration that He has brought to us, so that we can share that with people.In case you didnt know, Ben and I are called to the Native Nations. We have been part of Freedom Road ministry where we were learning new tools to take on the road with us. For about 6 years the Lord has been speaking to us about a traveling ministry, but we've been waiting on the timing and the season. Well, last spring He told us that we would be setting out in February of 2011 to the reservations on the long awaited journey that we've been anticipating. He opened a door to us down at the Cowlitz reservation about an hour south of Olympia. WOW! What a privelege and an honor it has been to work with the people there. They have welcomed us as family and we feel so blessed by our new friendships. God has been doing amazing things with the people there. They are being set free and getting saved, healed and delivered. Another opportunity has arrived for Ben to speak at the American Indian Fellowship meeting on March 12th at the Skokomish Assembly of God. Come one come all! And yet another opportunity the following weekend at the Lummi tribe just north of Everett. Crazy Faith is bringing revival on March 18th, 19th & 20th! If you have air to breathe, we need you there! Love you all and thank you for your support in our new journey. Its going to be an exciting ride!
