What are you arising to? What do you need God to do in your life to help you take a step forward?

Join us in the DEBORAH GENERATION I-ARISE on October 19-21, 2018 at the Zoe Ministries Church as we begin to ARISE as people of God!

God is calling for you, for my sisters, for my friends, for my mothers and for my daughters to begin to RISE UP and take a NEW STEP…a new step into a NEW REALITY!

This is a shout out to all women of God and men of God : we all have a plan and a purpose that God has given us. You are not a second class citizen. You are not just someone who is here by chance. You have a purpose because God loves you, and that purpose is going to be revealed.


The DEBORAH GENERATION I-ARISE is a CALL for women to begin to stand and take a step of faith. Women from all walks of life are invited—whether you are a businesswoman, a career woman, a stay at home mom, a single mom, a widow—the hand of God is pointing to YOU to come out to hear what ‘thus saith the Lord’…

On Saturday morning (October 20), we will have ‘women only’ conference. We are doing this because we want to deal and focus on women’s issues. I want to make sure that we will get all the women of God to come out because what we want to do is to get them to experience and engage in workshops that are going to bless the people of God:

Workshops dealing with your financial situation

Workshops dealing with your family

Workshops dealing with your relationships

Workshops dealing with your health

Workshops dealing with your well-being as a woman of God

It is with my desire and my hope that this workshop will wake up your heart and mind and let you know that it is time to arise.


Is there going to be a word from the Lord?

Yes! There will be a word from the Lord—a word that is tailor-made to God’s people; a word that is going to shift and bring change in every situation.


Who will lead the event?

The event will open with Bishop/Doctor/Prophetess T.L. Penny, who has the word of God in her mouth and will speak forth the word of the Lord. Prophetess Mascareen Cohen from Jacksonville, Florida will also be there to help you let go and let God have His way in your life. I, personally, will close out this amazing powerful conference and bring you what ‘thus saith the Lord’.


What are the Prophetic Instructions:


  1. Bring a brand new pair of shoes on Friday night to lay at the altar and to pick up on the Sunday Afternoon service.
  2. Every woman is to wear pink.

Come out and be a part of this event! Know that God has not forgotten us; instead, know that we are truly remembered.


The Deborah Generation is arising! We will win the battle and we will be victorious!


Seek The Right Treasures

God is always looking out for His children. He has shown us the door to redemption through Jesus Christ. But it is up to us whether to enter or to stay in the darkness.

Many of God’s people today are lost, confused and deceived by the call of earthly pleasures and material possessions. They seek their own interests instead of seeking that of Jesus Christ. Most of us live in a society that places too much importance on money and material things. As human beings, there is nothing wrong with providing for oneself and one’s family; but if you turn away from those who are in need, you neglect your Christian duty to your neighbor.

“Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others.” – Philippians 2:4 

God wants us to love one another, pray for one another, and help one another. It is a simple and easy instruction that most of us find so hard to do. God gives us a chance every day to take up this challenge and make a difference in the lives of others. Having a close relationship with God can help us discern the right thing to do and break free from the temptations that are laid before us.

The Bible tells us not to store up treasures on earth, but to store up treasures in heaven. Let us seek the right treasures and live in the grace of our Father up high. Our obedience to His word will bring us joy and peace.

How to Start to Serve God

We may have our faith, but we also need to put our beliefs into action. God has given us, humans, a set of teachings and commandments to follow. Our faith becomes stronger when we listen to God’s word and follow His will.

God has given us a perfect example through the life of His only beloved Son, Jesus Christ. Jesus’ life on earth was a life filled with faith and service to God. We are all called to be just like Him—selfless, obedient, loving, merciful, compassionate and forgiving.

Let us inject these qualities in our daily life and show the world what it truly means to be a Christian. We were already greatly blessed because we have come to know God and His glory. It is our turn now to help others have a relationship with Jesus Christ.

God may use you to pursue people who are lost and confused, who need help and support, or who need love and attention. Allow the Spirit of the Lord to work in you and through you to bring these people back to God. You will be guided in knowing and doing what is right through the power of the Holy Spirit. The only thing you have to do, is will it.

The promise of help from the Holy Spirit can be found in John 14:15-17:

 “If you love Me, keep My commandments. And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another Helper, that He may abide with you forever— the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him; but you know Him, for He dwells with you and will be in you.” 

Jesus tells us that to love God, means to love others. One cannot go without the other. We are pleasing God when we are pleasing our brothers and sisters through giving help and kindness to them.

Yes, it is our privilege to serve God and serve others. It is our Christian duty to show kindness towards all of God’s earthly creation and mercy towards those who have wronged us. To serve God begins with good knowledge of our faith, and applying it in our daily life to bring goodness into the world around us.




Overcoming Fear

There is one tried and tested way that can help people in overcoming fear: Faith in God.

God is our protector. He is our rock, our shield, and our salvation. We can take refuge in Him whenever we are persecuted by troubles and insecurities. In our earthly existence, we are bound to encounter many challenges that can strike us down and leave us feeling fearful of what’s to come. But with God on our side, we should have nothing to fear!

Fear is often an instrument of the enemy to prevent us from living in peace with the Spirit of God. Fear can make us do something that takes us away from the path of righteousness. Because of fear, some people resort to sin, thinking that it will be the solution. Sin, however, will only create more problems for people in the long run, both in this world and the next.

While fear can make people do wrong things, it can also prevent people from doing the right things. Because of fear, some people neglect to do their duty as Christians. Have you ever experienced fear in expressing your faith in public? Or have you ever feared standing up for what is right amongst your friends?

Fear is found everywhere. A simple example can be found in the simplest of settings: in the classroom. When a little boy sees another child being bullied, he fears that if he says something, he, too, will be bullied. The same scenario can be seen in the highest levels of government and business industries. Though it may be difficult, we must always stand by what is right. As Christians, we should not only limit our faith to prayer, we must also put it in action.

God will always be on our side. The key to overcoming fear is to remember God’s promise of protection. The Bible says in Deuteronomy 31:6, “Be strong and of a good courage, fear not, nor be afraid of them: for the Lord thy God, he it is that doth go with thee; he will not fail thee, nor forsake thee.”God will preserve your life in the midst of trouble. Have faith in Him and don’t let fear get in the way of your own great destiny.




How to Strengthen a Marriage

Even for those who have been married for several years, some couples still desire to know how to strengthen a marriage.

Unlike fairy tales and romance novels, marriage doesn’t automatically come with “happily-ever-after”. Marriage, like any other relationship, takes a lot of work. It is difficult at times, but we should never give up or let the enemy tempt us into sin and wrongdoings.

As Christians, we have one powerful weapon to fight against the attacks on our marriages—our relationship with God. When God is at the center of your married life, you and your spouse are blessed and protected by His everlasting love. When you live out Christian values and lifestyles in your marriage, your marriage becomes stronger and you both are easily able to say “no” to evil or temptation.

Marriage is rooted in God. Most people have forgotten this because of the changes in society and worldly thinking. In the Sacrament of Marriage, God puts two people together to live out a beautiful family life and share this world with each other. In the Bible, Jesus also spoke about marriage:

“For this reason a man shall leave his father and mother and be joined to his wife, and the two shall become one flesh’; so then they are no longer two, but one flesh. Therefore what God has joined together, let not man separate.” – Mark 10:7-9

The same is said in Genesis 2:24. The Bible tells us a lot about marriage, including the things that each spouse must and must not do. It may be a challenging task for us, humans, to follow God’s commandments, but we have 24/7 access to divine guidance and support from the Holy Spirit.

Marriage works best when each person is fully committed to his or her relationship with God. And as a couple lives out their married life, they can draw strength and faith from each other.

Two are better than one, Because they have a good reward for their labor. For if they fall, one will lift up his companion. But woe to him who is alone when he falls, For he has no one to help him up. – Ecclesiastes 4:9-10

Some couples take it for granted, but marriage is a blessing. Put God always at the center of your marriage to keep it going strong and filled with happiness.

Do Not Ignore the Call of God

Have you ever experienced what it is like to be ignored?

Most mothers who have adolescent children have experienced this at one point or another. It may not always be intentional, but sometimes children do ignore the call of their parents.

In the same way, we sometimes ignore the call of God, our Heavenly Father, to do what is just and righteous. We are all children of God, and it hurts our loving Father whenever we choose not to do His will. Worldly things often lead us into thinking that we can navigate this world by ourselves. But in the end, we will realize that it is God who truly knows what is best.

As the Scripture says in Proverbs 19:21, “Many are the plans in a person’s heart, but it is the Lord’s purpose that prevails.” God has given us a set of teachings and commandments in order to guide us towards leading a life of peace, joy and happiness. The reason why so many people today are distraught and drowning in their troubles is because they fail to listen to the Word of God.

When we were born into this world, it was God who was holding our hand as we took our first steps on earth. As we grew older, a lot of worldly distractions made us pull our hand farther and farther away from God. We are fooled into thinking that we can stand alone. And when we stumble, some of us return to God; but some of us go their own way, leaving them lost, in pain and in despair.

Always keep God close to your heart and listen to His Word. We will never lose our way if we do not ignore the call of God and heed His instructions. God loves you and He is always within your reach.      

Achieving True Beauty


There are so many different products in the market that claim to improve one’s physical beauty. Only a few are affordable, the rest have prices that are unbelievable! That is why most women save up just to buy a beauty product they really want, thinking that it would bring them beauty and happiness.

As if the plethora of products are not enough, there are also various services and procedures that claim to make a person beautiful. These services/procedures are not only expensive, but they also take time to do. And some, like cosmetic surgery, require even more time for healing.

It is clear that people are willing to invest their time and money just to make themselves beautiful. But people often forget that true beauty lies within one’s spirit.

Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.” –Proverbs 31:30

A woman who has faith in the Lord and follows His word is more beautiful than any other. She has the all the good qualities that is desirable in the eyes of man. She shows kindness in her words and deeds and the light in her eyes reveals the grace of God in her life. This inner beauty lasts longer than any man-made product, service, or procedure.

As the Apostle Paul wrote in his instructions on worship,  “I also want the women to dress modestly, with decency and propriety, adorning themselves, not with elaborate hairstyles or gold or pearls or expensive clothes, but with good deeds, appropriate for women who profess to worship God.” (1 Timothy 2:9-10). 

If we can invest our time and money with our outward appearance, we should also invest in making our souls beautiful. Invest your time in prayer and reading God’s Word. Use your resources to help others in need and spread the word of the Lord.

Seek true beauty today and become beautiful in the eyes of God and others.



Spiritual Amnesia

My understanding returned to me; and I blessed the Most High. – Daniel 4:34 nkjv

As we all know, amnesia is a condition that involves the loss of memories. It can make us forget about who we are, where we are from, and everything else. Amnesia is indeed something serious; it could hurt our loved ones for not knowing who they are and could lead to difficulty in forming new memories.  

However, it is different when it comes to having an amnesia spiritually. What is Spiritual Amnesia? I’ve met a lot of people saying that they are lost; they don’t know where to head to anymore because they’ve lost faith in God. They don’t know what to do, nor do they know who they really are. Some tell me it’s because God seems to not hear their prayers, and there’s no blessings coming to them.

I always tell them that everything that’s happening in our life is already a blessing in itself. Every second that we’re alive is already a blessing from the Lord. If you’re asking something from the Lord and He still hasn’t delivered your blessings, don’t think that He’s already forgotten you. The Lord only wants you to be strong and prepared for the time when He has already given you what you have been asking for. What you need to do is to wait, be patient and trust Him.

He truly loves you and He will never forget about you. Keep praying and keep your faith in God, and all of the blessings you are asking for will be delivered. Don’t feel lost. The direction of your being should be focused in and directed towards our Lord God.

Let us pray together…

Dear Lord God, help us remember your divine promises. There are times when we question everything, times when we almost lose our faith in you. Please forgive us for our sins. We don’t want to lose you, we want you to always be by our side; because if you’re not, our Lord God, we would be lost. We wouldn’t know which direction to follow, for you are our guardian. Please help us and look after us everyday. Amen.

Even When Life Is Difficult, He Is There for Us

“How long, Lord? Will you forget me forever? How long will you hide your face from me? How long must I wrestle with my thoughts and day after day have sorrow in my heart? How long will my enemy triumph over me?” – Psalm 13:1­–2

Sometimes, our struggles in life seem as though they will never end. We experience pain in a lot of ways. People experience pain through health issues, relationship problems, addictions, loss of a loved one, and many others. Just recently, I know someone whose pet cat passed away. Even if pets are not human like us, people can love them as if they’re human. The pain can be tremendous, and it could go on for a very long time.

This is where the care and comfort of our Heavenly Father step in. The Lord cares for us deeply, and we can go to Him with our pain and loss. He will never forsake us. In our times of pain and weakness, we can always reach out to Him. We can lift up to Him all of our pain and anxiety and He can wipe it all away with His mighty hand.

God’s unfailing love will carry us throughout our journey and we can rejoice in His salvation.


Let’s pray together…

Dear Lord God,

Please guide us in our daily lives and watch over us. We have enemies who have been trying to hurt us every day. We are reaching out to you to always be by our side. In our seemingly endless moments of struggles in life, we ask you to wrap your arms around us and embrace us when we feel weak. We wouldn’t know what direction to walk in if you’re not beside us. We ask this, in your holy name, Amen.

Random Act of Kindness

Matthew 6:1

“Be careful not to practice your righteousness in front of others to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven.”


Doing a random act of kindness has always been something that is encouraged; and it is also what the Lord would want us to do. But sometimes, there are people who do “acts of kindness” just so they could let everyone know that they helped someone for the sake of being praised or socially rewarded.

Real kindness comes from someone who would help a person in need without asking for anything in return. You can tell if a person is sincere in giving if he or she gives help to others quietly. You see, not everyone needs to know that you go out helping people who are in need. What matters is that, you chose to open your heart and help them.

People don’t need to know what you’re doing. Your reason for doing an act of kindness should be your willingness to help out, not to receive praise or become well known. Following God’s will is what’s important.

Let’s pray..

Dear Lord God, please guide us and give us the power to help people who are in need and to spread the faith and trust we have for You. You have been giving us so much love, kindness, and blessings and we want people to know what real kindness is, that it all started and came from You. Amen.
