“Loving favor rather than silver and gold” Proverbs 22:1
Acts 2:52, (NIV), “And Jesus grew in wisdom and stature, and in favor with God and man.”
Prophetic Dream: working at a closed business in a mall. A young black man was given a prize: Chanel No. 5. The rest of us could choose a prize from the closet on the honor system when our work was finished, nothing expensive.
perfume= anointing of the Holy Spirit
mall= commercial church
Symbols from “Divinity Code” by Adam Thompson and Adrian Beale
A few Prophetic Pastors said that receiving favor can be embarrassing, it’s nothing you earned, it’s just your timing, and God has expensive taste. I believe it’s a time of supernatural favor from the Lord for young men of color.
Similarly Pr. Joel Osteen did a teaching on a ‘season of high favor’ it’s a window of time, so realize it and enjoy it.
Exodus 25:6, “…Oil for the light, and spice for the anointing oil and for the sweet incense”
Dream: walked into the kitchen, a man held out a large silver baking pan and asked what to use on it to coat it. I asked if he’s making a cake. He laughed, ‘yes.’ I said ‘olive oil.’ He said, ‘that sounds bad. I said, ‘no, it’s good.’
The baker is the devil
The pan is what’s in his heart
Olive oil is the Holy Spirit
Dear Friends, I pray for discernment of good and evil for you and that you’re not distracted by counterfeit good things.
*The Divinity Code, by Adam F. Thompson and Adrian Beale, 2011.
“Now Amalek came and fought with Israel in Rephidim.
“And Moses said to Joshua, ‘Choose us some men and go out, fight with Amalek. Tomorrow I will stand on the top of the hill with the rod of God in my hand.’
“And so it was, when Moses held up his hand, that Israel prevailed; and when he let down his hand, Amalek prevailed.
“So Joshua defeated Amalek and his people with the edge of the sword.”
“Stand up” I heard in the Spirit.
Praising You & raising my hands feeling Your holy fire, I don’t want to leave Your presence. Like Moses raising the rod of Aaron, You give me victory in the battle. Lord God, give us victory in all our battles, in Jesus’ name.
No one jot or tittle will be changed. Jesus in Matthew 5:18

Dream: looking up all the phrases in the Bible spoken by a Christian leader friend. They were not there, but sounded similar to some verses.
1 Peter 2:2, “As newborn babes, desire the pure milk of the word, that you may grow thereby.”
“And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it” Matthew 16:18
“‘Do you not fear Me?’ says the Lord. ‘Will you not tremble at My presence, who have placed the sand as the bound of the sea, by a perpetual decree, that it cannot pass beyond it? And though its waves toss to and fro, yet they cannot prevail, though they roar, yet they cannot pass over it.” Jeremiah 5:22
We’re being tested, do we believe God’s word that never changes or our trusted friends and Pastors? Can they be dull, diluted or lack discernment?
“The bride belongs to the bridegroom. The friend who attends the bridegroom waits and listens for him, and is full of joy when he hears the bridegroom’s voice. That joy is mine, and it is now complete.” John the Baptist about Him, John 3:29 (NIV)
My soul kept crying out this way to Jesus a few months ago. Is He not our Bridegroom afterall?
“Whoso seeketh her early shall have no great travail: for he shall find her sitting at his doors.” Song 6:14 (KJV)
“These have come so that the proven genuineness of your faith–of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire–may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed.” 1 Peter 1:7 (NIV)
Recent Aglow meeting, Holy Spirit said the current crisis is “opening, preparation for revival”
This has been prophecied to me and others over the years that you are in training for end times. Our faith is being tested, hold onto what’s true and lasting. When things are being shaken, we are stable, calm, trusting in God, not circumstances. Jesus wins!
His answer to prayerfully asking, “What do You want me to do?” during a very open time in my life. Amen.
“And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will Build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it.”
“Having been built on the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being the chief cornerstone,21 in whom the whole building, being fitted together, grows into a holy temple in the Lord, 22 in whom you also are being built together for a dwelling place of God in the Spirit.”
