Revelation 12:11 “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.”
On my page “Prophetic Whispers” we’re sharing our experiences about the power of praying in tongues. This gift literally SAVED my life and that of my children when the enemy’s plots were exposed and thwarted.
Here’s my testimony:
This happened the month I got baptized in the Holy Ghost 20 years ago, 2 weeks after I got saved. Whilst praying in tongues one Wednesday late afternoon in my bedroom, (my 2 children were playing in another room) I was taken by the Spirit in a vision to my kitchen. I saw myself looking out of the window… 3 men were standing at the end of my garden. I can still describe them, what they were wearing and what they were holding in their hands. One had a red T-shirt, black cap and he had a white plastic bag in his hand with the logo of the local supermarket on it. One of the men called out to me and said they needed to talk to me. I opened the kitchen door and stepped out. They asked to speak to my husband. I said he was at work. They began to walk towards me and I sensed great danger. I ran back into the house but didn’t have time to close or lock the door as they were closing in on me. They chased me around the house… I was shouting at the top of my voice “I’m a child of God. You can’t kill me” !!! The man carrying the plastic bag was trying to put the bag over my head. He couldn’t as I got away from him each time.
I came out of the vision. My husband had just arrived home when I bolted out towards the kitchen but everything was fine. No men in sight. It was just a vision. Right?
3 days later, on the Saturday, late afternoon, I was standing at the kitchen window, looked up and froze. The 3 men, exactly as the ones in my vision stood there at the end of my garden. Same clothes, same cap, same plastic bag. One of the man called out to me. I didn’t open the door but I opened the window slightly and asked what they wanted. They asked if my husband was home. I reached for the phone as they were speaking to me and dialed my husband tel nbr. I whispered to him.. “they are here… the 3 men from my vision!” My adrenaline was pumping. I shouted out to the men whilst my husband listened and grabbing his car keys ran to the car with the contractor that was building our house. “My husband is just on his way home. He’ll be here any minute… I have him on the line” I shouted to the men. They looked to each other and bolted!
A few months later, my aunty on my dad’s side came to see me. I’d only reconnected with her after many years of not having close relationship with my dad’s family. Long story short I didn’t know her children, my cousins. She came to apologize to me for one of her sons who had confessed to her that his 2 friends had taken him to a house to murder a woman and her 2 children in revenge for not being paid for a job done by the contractor who was building our house. My husband didn’t know about the issue with the payment. My cousin only recognized me when I came to the kitchen window. He was tormented by the thought of what he nearly did and confessed to his mum.
Praying in the powerful language of Holy Spirit that day saved my life and that of my children. We’re still here today because of it, all glory to God. Praying in tongues can / does thwart and confuse the plans of the enemy. God didn’t say that the weapons of the enemy won’t form but He does say they won’t prosper.
I pray this encourages someone today.

THE ROARING CHURCH IS RISING AND WILL NOT BE SILENT
When I woke up on Sunday morning, 24 May 2020 I was given one word: ROAR!!! And this word below was downloaded to my spirit:
“The church went into lockdown as a soft, purring kitten, she’s coming out as the ROARING LION. Roar, Lion of Judah, ROAR” !!!
I recently had a dream in which I was being shown a vision of me at the movies. As the film began to roll, I saw door after door opening and people were entering their homes and closing their doors behind them. I heard the keys being turned in the locks, and latches and bolts were pushed securely in place. Then the whole scene went into FAST FORWARD and everything began to ACCELERATE. All of a sudden it slowed again to almost normal pace and immediately it began to REWIND. I watched the whole scene again but this time in REVERSE. First, I heard the latches and bolts being pulled back, keys turning in the locks, doors opening and the people coming out of their homes. Everything was in ACCELERATED MODE.
As the people emerged from their homes and stepped out into very bright sunshine, the glistening sunshine highlighted something about them that I hadn’t noticed before they went in. They had very strong muscles especially on their arms and legs.
When I was reflecting on this dream, God’s strong voice boomed saying “My sons and daughters are emerging FULL of My Spirit.”
Ezekiel 37:13-14 “I have opened your graves, O My people, and brought you up from your graves. I will put My Spirit in you, and you shall live, and I will place you in your own land. Then you shall know that I, the LORD, have spoken it and performed it,” says the LORD.’
THE ROARING REMNANT
I sense that this Resilient Remnant that is emerging has no fear in them for their BLOOD and BONES are full of the FIRE OF THE LORD, having walked in the roaring fiery furnace and came out intact and whole, although with battle scars.
They are like the Shadrach’s, the Meshach’s, and the Abed-Nego’s who did not bow down to the god of fear but stood strong in their faith for the God they feared. (Daniel 3) They faced fiery trials but survived because they walked with the Son of God in the fire and they emerged with greater authority.
In this decade of Pey, Hebrew word for “mouth” (Jewish Year 5780) this emerging Remnant has a testimony to tell. Both Testimony and Pey have the same root word as “MARTYR”. A martyr is not somebody who was murdered for his faith. Rather, it’s someone who has battled and LIVED to tell his story, his testimony. This overcoming Remnant has a testimony of VICTORY to tell with the double-edged sword that is in her mouth. This will cause the lame to rise up and walk, the blind to see, the deaf to hear, the sick to be healed and devils to be cast out. This Remnant is endowed with CREATIVE force because of the LIFE that they carry in them.
The Church is coming into her rightful inheritance!
I have been hearing many people speak about the ‘martyrs’ of the “roaring twenties”, those that did not die in battle but lived to tell their own testimonies of victory, and whose voices are still reverberating even in our times. I hear the Spirit of the Lord say about this Remnant Church that is birthing right now: “Your roar shall be louder than those of past decades for this is the year that I’m pouring out My fresh anointing like never before.”
For this Remnant, the doors of the new season have been flung open and they are like an army that is emerging in power from their cocoon.
The Church that went into the last season is very different from the one that is coming out into the new season. God is bringing about an ACCELERATION of His power upon them which will cause their enemy’s knees to tremble with fear until he cannot stand. This is the same weapon that he’s been using against God’s people but it’s backfiring on him for this Remnant Church is FEARLESS.
The VIBRATING VOICE of the Roaring Church that is arising will be heard ricocheting around the world to shift spiritual atmospheres over communities, cities and nations. They will speak and sing with one harmonious voice and they will not be silenced.
NEW SKIN, NEW WINE
I recently found out that a lion’s sense of smell is located in the roof of its mouth (through an organ called the “Jacobson’s Organ). This allows the lion to “taste” smells in the atmosphere by curling its top lip and pulling a funny face.
The Roaring Church that is arising is the ‘prophetic church’, the Bride of the Beloved, that has been enclosed in the Cellar of God’s Glory and she’s drunk with the new wine that she has tasted. She has tasted and seen that the Lord is indeed good (Psalm 34:8). She walks in the fire with the King of the pride and together they fearlessly war against the roaring lion (1 Peter 5:8), the intruder in their midst, and cause him to back off.
Her weapon is her voice. In a previous encounter, I have heard her sing her battle song:
“The Roaring Church is rising
She will not be silent
She cannot be intimidated
For the Lion of Judah has roared
Her shackles have fallen off
Her voice has been restored
To rebuke the devouring spirit”
The Voice of the Roaring Church is powerful, especially in this decade of Pey. For this reason, the Lord is cleansing the language and the breath of His Remnant. He’s changing their vocabulary to align His Bride with the purity and holiness of His Word for out of the abundance of their hearts, He’s going to cause them to speak.
“Surely the Lord GOD does nothing, Unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets. A lion has roared! Who will not fear? The Lord GOD has spoken! Who can but prophesy?” (Amos 3:7-8)
A lion’s eyes have night vision capabilities due to the fact that it can reflect the moonlight. With the ability to see 8 times sharper than that of a human eye, the Eyes of the Roaring Church pierce the darkness to reflect the light of God’s glory.
“Behold, I will do a new thing, now it shall spring forth; Shall you not know it? I will even make a road in the wilderness and rivers in the desert.” Isaiah 43:19
“I will make rivers flow on barren heights, and springs within the valleys. I will turn the desert into pools of water, and the parched ground into springs.” Isaiah 41:18
The God of the new outpouring has promised He’s turning our dry places into rivers of water and our barren land into fertile grounds. Our barns are full of the SEEDS of the Word. It is time to sow! In the time of great famine (Genesis 26) the Lord gave Isaac a promise that if he dwelled in the land that He was giving him, He would prosper him and multiply his descendants. “In your seed all the nations of the earth shall be blessed” (verse 4). “Then Isaac sowed in that land, and reaped in the same year a hundredfold; and the Lord blessed him” (verse 12).
In Acts 1:4 / Luke 24:48 Jesus promised His disciples “Behold, I send THE PROMISE of My Father upon you; but tarry in the city of Jerusalem until you are endued with power from on high.”
Act 2:2-4 “When the Day of Pentecost had fully come, they were all with one accord in one place. And suddenly there came a sound from heaven, as of a rushing mighty wind, and it filled the whole house where they were sitting. Then, there appeared to them divided tongues, as of fire, and one sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Spirit and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.”
In Acts 2:13, people pointed fingers and mocked them saying “They are full of new wine.”
When your new wine comes, beware for there will be those that will mock you. Be ready to raise up your voice to address the crowds just as Peter did on the day of Pentecost. This new wine will cause you to arise in BOLDNESS and COURAGE. This Promise has no expiry date to it, it is still valid for “you, your children, and all who are afar off, as many as the Lord our God will call.” (Acts 2:38).
The Roaring Bride knows that she’s now in the Upper Room, the place of birthing, waiting for the Promise of this new outpouring. She’s pregnant with hope and greatly expectant. Her lamp is full with fresh oil for she’s determined that she will not miss the hour of His coming. The God of the Promise is ready to pour out again.
Revelation 5:5 “Do not weep. Behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has prevailed”
The Lion of Judah has prevailed! Let boldness arise from within. It’s OUR time to ROAR, Church. R-O-A-R !!!!!

I have shared this new word with one of my most trusted accountability partners, dynamic woman of God, Minister and Apostle, Victoria Scott and this is what she has shared with me:
As you shared the word on the rush and acceleration that is coming, I literally felt a gush of wind come into my lungs and a push on my lower back. It took my breath away, yet brought fresh breath in my lungs. As you shared the word, the breath in my lungs began to spread to my body. Like virtue, I felt it spread to each of my limbs, allowing me to breathe easier.
The more you spoke, I could hear you but was taken in the Spirit to the Upper Room. You were next to me and we were waiting but PRAYING IN TONGUES as we waited for Pentecost.
My Queen sister, this word you are sharing from the Lord will revive many. It has the Ruach life and breath of God. We are now in an age where the SECOND part of the dry bones in Ezekiel 37 IS being told. Where not only the winds give them life, but the Holy Spirit is here to give another breath of life: an awakening, a quickening, thus the acceleration.
