As you are all aware, while we were all beginning to experience some semblance of life returning to normal after the quarantine, another wicked attack came from the enemy. The evil of racism violently demonstrated in the horrific murder of George Floyd. Christi and I both have endeavored to right this wrong our whole lives.
I grew up in the South during segregation but I have never had an all white band. Music is not black or white; it is just good or bad. In the 1960’s when Martin Luther King Jr. was marching, my band was not allowed to stay in certain hotels and I refused to stay where not all members of my band were welcome. Although I now have great honor for our law enforcement, at that time, I was ridiculed by police not only for the members of my rock band but also for being a hippie. I ended up in jail one time simply because they did not approve of my long hair, earrings, blue jeans and platform boots. Because of the way I looked, they assumed I was up to no good. After I gave my heart to Jesus, I was wearing these same clothes my first Sunday back in church and I was treated again with loathing and disgust by Christians. If it hadn’t been for the kind pastor who reached out to me that day, I would have left angry and hurt once again by their destructive, foolish assumptions. This is why I have always been vehemently against prejudice and racism. I am for a relationship with Jesus! He doesn’t base His love for us on anything exterior. When we receive the gift of His shed blood, He looks only at the heart.
Please understand that the enemy’s sole purpose in this latest attack is to divide us and stop the church from having the power of agreement. (Matt. 18:19) He knows that if he can get us fighting among ourselves, we will have no power. Ephesians 6:12 says that we are not doing battle “against flesh and blood.” This is not about black versus white. We are fighting “against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.”
As the battle rages, it’s time to have an honest conversation about racism. First, we must settle that The Word of God is THE TRUTH. II Corinthians 13:1 says, “By the mouth of two or three witnesses every word shall be established.” Here is what God says about the race of man:
So, we know that we are ALL created in the image of God and if we are born again, we are all one IN HIM. The only dividing line God draws are those who belong to Jesus and those who don’t. According to The Truth there are no “races.” There is only one human race and we all descended from Adam and Eve.
We are witnessing great rage over this issue. We are warned of the danger of division and anger in James 3:14-17, explaining that strife and contention are from the devil. Verse 16 says, “For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.” If the enemy can get us arguing among ourselves or comparing ourselves to each other, then we open the door to confusion and every evil work! When we are confused, we cannot discern the leading of the Holy Spirit and this allows the devil to wreak havoc in our lives.
According to God’s Word, reacting in anger will never right a wrong. In James 1:19-20 NLT we read what love’s response should be: “Understand this, my dear brothers and sisters: You must all be quick to listen, slow to speak, and slow to get angry. Human anger does not produce the righteousness God desires.” We need to take time to listen to each other without finding fault. But first, we must forgive!
In Mark 11:26 Jesus said, “But IF YOU DO NOT FORGIVE, NEITHER WILL YOUR FATHER IN HEAVEN FORGIVE YOUR TRESPASSES.” The only solution to racism, anti-Semitism, prejudice or stereotypes for any person is forgiveness and humility. Our Lord Jesus is saying to us, if we want forgiveness then we have to forgive everyone of everything. If we don’t forgive, then we have sinned by refusing to obey our Lord! But if we CONFESS our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us. (I John 1:9) But please know this, we do have to confess. We have to humble ourselves and admit we were wrong. That’s the secret. It’s not always the other guys fault! Everyone needs to forgive and everyone needs to humble themselves.
If you are a person of color and we have ever offended you in any way, please forgive us, in Jesus name. We want you blessed and honored as a child of God and as our brother and sister in The Lord.
There is great reward for choosing love and forgiveness: God COMMANDS THE BLESSING!
“Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious oil upon the head, running down on the beard, the beard of Aaron, running down on the edge of his garments. It is like the dew of Hermon, descending upon the mountains of Zion; for there the LORD commanded the blessing— Life forevermore.” Psalm 133:1-3 NKJV
As you sow your seed this month, rejoice knowing that your seed is helping us share the message of love and unity around the world through our TV ministry, On the Road to Freedom. We join our faith with yours that when you CHOOSE LOVE, you choose to forgive everyone who has ever hurt you. Therefore, The LORD commands the blessing on your finances, health, career and relationships! You are BLESSED. Now, start looking for opportunities to be a blessing and a minister of mercy everywhere you go!
We Love You,
Mylon & Christi
P.S. Thank you for all of your praise report emails, kind notes of encouragement and uplifting social media comments over the last few months. We read them all and are so grateful to The Lord for you!! If you need prayer, please contact us at www.mylon.org. Or if you need encouragement, don’t forget that all of the On the Road to Freedom episodes are on demand also on our site.
In obedience to the leading of the Holy Spirit, I am thrilled to share with you that my NEW book was just released! The timely message is titled, The Gracious Woman. In light of the defiant, aggressive tactics of the recent feminist movement, women are being deceived by the enemy’s lies concerning how they must achieve equality. I understand that this teaching may not be popular or politically correct but I sense an urgency to speak the truth now. News reports also state that divorce rates are skyrocketing due to the pressures of the quarantine. But as we know, when those who are bound by rage and fear understand The Truth, they will be SET FREE to a life of LOVE. Here is an excerpt from Chapter One:
“I’d worked tirelessly from a young age to excel in life. I never wanted to be favored because of my femininity or because others might have thought I was attractive. I deeply desired to be known and respected for my intelligence.
In college, I studied long hours to be accepted into several honor societies. I graduated Summa Cum Laude and was voted by department professors as the top graduate out of thousands of students in my department. After graduation, when I got my first job, I became one of my company’s top performers while I was still in my early twenties. Those accolades, however, hadn’t given me the confidence I thought they would. I still believed I had to fight to earn respect.
What caused me to remain so defensive? Why was I always ready in a moment to contend, especially with men in authority? I lacked this key revelation:
“A gracious woman gains respect.” Proverbs 11:16
During the tumultuous journey of the past 20 years, the Lord has patiently taught me this truth. He’s shown me, after many unhappy years of being angry and frustrated, that there’s no need for me to obsess over and fight for the respect I desire. When I choose to surrender my will and be the gracious woman He has called me to be, respect is guaranteed.”
Gaining respect means that we increase our realm of influence. There is a lot of talk in our culture about being an “influencer.” According to The Word, if we want to have a voice that makes a difference in the earth, it only comes by choosing to be gracious.
Honor and respect are the result of a life lived with graciousness.
The Gracious Woman is a quick read at only seven chapters and formatted as a daily devotional so you can ponder questions and pray over new “Gracious Goals” each day. At the end of one week, you can receive revelation that took me twenty years to learn! If you want to check it out first, receive free of charge the Introduction and First Chapter when you sign up at www.TheGraciousWomanBook.com.
Because we highly value you as a Team Mylon member, be on the lookout for a special GIFT delivered to your inbox! For 7 weeks only, you will receive timely encouragement from my new book that we call, #GraciousWomanWednesday. Whether you are male or female, these truths are universal. I believe they will be a blessing to you, your marriage and relationships. Each week includes a NEW On the Road to Freedom broadcast filmed on location in beautiful Sundance, UT where Mylon and I share together on these subjects. You get to see them first!
We are extremely grateful for your partnership in the gospel! As you sow your “first fruits” this month, you can rejoice knowing that you are helping us to share the good news of The Grace of God around the world. We believe and declare over your seed that, “God is able to make ALL GRACE ABOUND toward you, that you, always having ALL sufficiency in all things, may have an abundance for every good work.” II Corinthians 9:8 NKJV
Above all, Mylon and I would appreciate your agreement in prayer for the launch of this book. Especially for a door of utterance to be opened that we may share this truth with women and marriages everywhere and see them set on their road to freedom. We truly love you and we are praying for you daily!
Grace & Peace,
P.S. May I humbly ask for your help? You can be a social media evangelist by SHARING our POSTS for The Gracious Woman. Or “pay it forward” by SHARING the EMAILS from #GraciousWomanWednesday or any of the recent #FaithFriday emails with someone you know needs encouragement. Thank you for joining in faith with us for a new movement of world-changing, history-making #GraciousWomen and #GraciousMarriages!
WHAT DO YOU EXPECT?
Dear precious friend,
We are in the midst of a faith fight right now; each of us standing fast for the power of God to be manifested. For a cure/vaccine to be discovered, for divine health, supernatural protection and financial increase. Or maybe you need the power of God just to get along with your family after being together 24/7 for 6 weeks! We want to remind you that when the world is experiencing destruction all around, the Blessing of The Lord causes God’s children to rise ABOVE every obstacle! But our part is to keep expecting the goodness of God!
This week, The Lord prompted us to keep our expectation high. He reminded us of what David declared in Psalms 27:13. In the midst of a horrible tragedy he said, “I would have despaired had I not believed that I would see the goodness of the LORD in the land of the living.” The land of the living is for here and now. David admitted he would have given up had he not changed his expectation. Expectation has to do with what we are looking at in regards to the future.
What is it that we can confidently expect of The Lord? We have the answer in Isaiah 30:18. The first part of the verse explains that The Lord is expecting to be gracious and merciful to you. So, “Blessed are all those who wait for Him, who EXPECT… [His VICTORY, His FAVOR, His LOVE, His PEACE, His JOY, and His matchless, unbroken companionship]!” We may have to practice social distancing right now but our beautiful companionship with the Lord will never be broken, Hallelujah!
What we expect also determines what we sow. It takes more faith to sow in a time of famine so be encouraged today that as you sow, you qualify for the hundred fold! In Genesis 26:1 & 12 we read that, “There was a famine in the land…” and “…Isaac sowed in that land, and reaped in the same year a hundredfold; and the LORD blessed him.” God is no respecter of persons so what he did for Isaac, he will do for you when you believe!
As you sow your seed this month, REJOICE and declare with us, “I expect to see the goodness of God today! I expect His victory, uncommon favor, unconditional love, perfect peace and unspeakable joy! I rest in His faithfulness for He will never leave me nor forsake me. I believe that I receive the hundred fold on my seed sown, even now in a time of famine. Lord, use my life to be a witness of Your mercy and grace!”
We love you and we are praying for you every day,
How to Live FREE from DANGER! ⚔️
It’s safe to say that in the last few weeks, the world has changed. There continues to be drastic changes literally every few hours because of the coronavirus pandemic. It has affected all of our lives in different ways: our jobs/income, daily routine, and lifestyle. In the midst of the chaos, we want to encourage you to REFUSE to FEAR. We have guaranteed rights and privileges in Christ concerning safety in these last days. The protection promises in Psalm 91 are our favorite, especially in times of crisis. Please read it out loud for you and your family:
1 “HE WHO dwells in the secret place of the Most High shall remain stable and fixed under the shadow of the Almighty [Whose POWER no foe can withstand]. 2 I will SAY of the Lord, He is my Refuge and my Fortress, my God; on Him I lean and rely, and in Him I [confidently] trust!” (AMPC) Our part is to rest in His presence knowing that we serve The One Whose power NO FOE and NO VIRUS can withstand! Then, we are instructed to SAY what we believe. Now more than ever we need to boldly DECLARE our faith in God and in His Word. It is protection for us in dangerous times. When others ask us what we think about the coronavirus, our answer should be: “The Lord is my Refuge and my Fortress. He is my God and in Him I trust!”
3 “Surely He shall deliver you from the snare of the fowler And from the perilous pestilence. 4 He shall cover you with His feathers, And under His wings you shall take refuge; His truth shall be your shield and buckler.” (NKJV) In the NLT the last part of verse 4 reads: “…His faithful promises are your armor and protection.” Be encouraged today as you read through God’s protection promises; they are your armor!
5 “You shall not be afraid of the terror by night, Nor of the arrow that flies by day, 6 Nor of the pestilence that walks in darkness, Nor of the destruction that lays waste at noonday. 7 A thousand may fall at your side, And ten thousand at your right hand; But it shall NOT come near you. 8 Only with your eyes shall you look, And see the reward of the wicked (the unbeliever). 9 BECAUSE you have made the LORD, who is my refuge, Even the Most High, your dwelling place, 10 NO EVIL shall befall you, Nor shall any PLAGUE come near your dwelling;” Declare with us, “The coronavirus can not come near my dwelling, in the Name of Jesus.”
11 For He shall give His angels charge over you, To keep you in all your ways. 12 In their hands they shall bear you up, Lest you dash your foot against a stone.” Psalms 103:20 continues to explain the role of angels in our lives, “Bless the LORD, you His angels, Who excel in strength, who do His word, Heeding the voice of His word.” Who gives God’s Word a voice in the earth? We do! We need to give our angels something to do. When you declare the promises of God over you and your family, the angels get to work!
14 “Because he has set his love upon Me, (our part) therefore I WILL deliver him (His part); I will set him on high, because he has known My name.” When He is our FIRST LOVE, He sets us ABOVE the chaos! 15 He shall call upon Me, and I WILL answer him; I will be with him (or her) in trouble; I will deliver him and HONOR him.” That’s you and me! We need to call on Him and look to Him for our help. When we Honor Him by turning to Him, He will honor us, even in turbulent times. God’s Honor includes His favor, increase and promotion! 16 With LONG life I will SATISFY him, And show him My salvation.” Salvation (sozo) is defined as: forgiveness, health/healing, prosperity, protection and deliverance, and NO stress. It’s the whole package that makes life worth living; a long life!
In a time of economic uncertainty, don’t let the devil back you off of your giving either. We are not of those who draw back but we are of those who believe! We are tithers! We live in a different kingdom and operate in God’s economy. Malachi 3:11 explains that when we bring all of our tithes and offerings to The Lord, He rebukes “the devourer for our sakes” so that “he will NOT DESTROY the fruit of our ground. (Our harvest)” The devil cannot destroy your finances when you are a tither!
Declare over your seed this month, “I will not fear! With long life God will satisfy me and He will show me His salvation, protection, prosperity and deliverance! I refuse to stress, I am blessed!” We are standing with you that we are in the midst of great victory, favor and increase.
We Love You & we are standing with you and FOR you in Jesus name!
Mylon & Christi
P.S. Because of the state of affairs, we will be delaying the release of Christi's book, The Gracious Woman. Stay posted through our social media sites for exciting upcoming information. Thank you again for supporting us reaching the world with this message of faith over fear. Together we are sharing The Truth with those who desperately need to know God’s Love, for “perfected love casts out all fear.” To keep your faith strong, CONNECT below for a timely teaching from On the Road to Freedom titled, “Freedom from Fear.”
We want to thank all of you who prayed for our filming trip to Palm Springs, CA for On the Road to Freedom. It was a powerful time of ministry and God’s anointing was fresh and tangible! We have another filming trip at the end of this month and we thank you in advance for your faith filled prayers. Also, to those who give each month to help us reach the world with the love of God, THANK YOU! Your seed is making a difference in the earth for Jesus! We and our ministry staff stand in agreement with you for God’s highest and best purpose and plan to unfold in your life.
This month, marks the first day of Spring, a NEW SEASON. If you’ve had an intense first of the year, we are declaring over you right now that it is OVER! We have the victory NOW in Christ Jesus, so let’s declare together by faith that it is a new season of total restoration of ALL things stolen! In celebration of this new season, we are releasing on April 5th Christi’s very first book for women titled, The Gracious Woman. It is her 20 year journey of how the Lord led her from a place of anger and fear in “fighting for her rights” to a peaceful place of enjoying heaven on earth. Even though Christi’s book is for women, there are many principles in the book that are for male and female.
“Render to ALL men their dues...respect to whom respect IS DUE, and honor to whom honor is due.” Romans 13:7
In today’s culture, respect is being demanded merely based on external traits, such as gender, ethnicity or ancestry. But according to The Word, God says true respect has to be earned and is based on internal qualities like character, integrity, loyalty and faithfulness. When true respect is earned, external traits diminish. THIS is where we finally achieve equality and there is no more bias between gender or race.
None of us should be restricted by what tradition or culture dictates that we should be. We are all magnificently designed by God to be brilliant leaders, team players and world changers. Yet in recent years, what is being celebrated in our society as “strong” has been alarming. We all must be strong to fulfill our God ordained and powerful call in the earth, but we should not have to belittle the opposite sex or anyone else to make our position stronger. The huge problem with that mindset is that we are ALL created in the image of God. There should be mutual honor for each other’s role and purpose. EACH of us have been gifted by God with such unique and special gifts that should be celebrated. Please understand that IN CHRIST, we are equally valuable.
“So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them.” Genesis 1:26 NKJV
“There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are ALL ONE in Christ Jesus.” Galatians 3:28 NKJV
We will never forget a statement that Brother Copeland who married us, said at our wedding. In a time of prayer he shared that The Lord spoke to him, “If Gloria had not stepped out and walked in the fullness of her calling, you Kenneth would not be where you are today.” Wow! It takes BOTH of us in the marriage union fulfilling our individual call in order for us to walk in the fullness of our call as a couple.
So as you can see, THE TRUTH is that we are both equally valuable. Jesus died for male and female alike. So if one is valued or celebrated more than the other, according to the Word, we are out of order. I understand that this teaching is not “politically correct” but the truth often isn’t. We must guard against a secular mindset influencing our hearts and minds. Romans 12:2 instructs us, “Be not conformed to this world but be transformed by the renewing of your mind in Christ Jesus.” Instead of allowing society to define our idea of what a strong man or woman is, let’s allow the Word of God to define it for us! Get ready, it’s a new season!
We Love and Appreciate You,
Mylon & Christi
P.S. You are a blessing from The Lord that we do not take lightly. We bless your seed sown and believe with you for your breakthrough! If you’d like to stay posted about the release of The Gracious Woman, you can connect with us at www.mylon.org or follow us on our social media sites: Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube. Be Blessed!
THE BLESSING OF THE LORD
Glory to God, we are blessed! We are enjoying the blessing of the Lord in every part of our lives and we are extremely grateful. God is orchestrating some amazing faith adventures for us in 2020 and we are thrilled for our future together in Him. But for us to walk in everything God has designed, we must lay hold of His blessed plan by faith. God has not changed. He is the same yesterday, today and forever! The only thing that has changed is our covenant with Him. The Old Covenant is about works but the New Covenant is about faith. Be encouraged today that no matter how difficult our situation looks, we have the victory by our faith in Christ Jesus.
WE ARE BLESSED! Galatians 3:6-9 NKJV explains, “just as Abraham believed God, and it was accounted to him for righteousness”… And the Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles (that’s us) by faith, preached the gospel to Abraham beforehand, saying, “In you all the nations shall be BLESSED.” So then those who are of faith are blessed with believing Abraham.” The gospel, (the good news) that God preached to Abraham was THE BLESSING! We can believe that we receive The Blessing of The Lord because:
WE ARE REDEEMED! Our redemption in Christ is what qualifies us for the BLESSING. Galatians 3:13-14 NKJV says, “Christ has redeemed us from the curse of the law, having become a curse for us…that the BLESSING OF ABRAHAM might come upon the Gentiles in Christ Jesus...” Jesus made us holy, clean, and righteous. We did not earn it. Therefore, if Jesus paid the price then we should NOT have the curse in our life. But the curse is still here and can be active in our lives through wrong choices: Fear (unbelief), rebellion (disobedience) and ignorance will always connect us to the curse. (See Deuteronomy 28:15) But as believers in Christ Jesus, we should only HAVE the blessing.
The Blessing is available for those who will connect with it. Deuteronomy 28:1-2 and James 1:25 explain that faith and obedience connects us to the blessing. Psalms 107:2 says, “Let the REDEEMED of the Lord SAY SO”. So let’s choose the blessing and make our bold declaration. Please say with us,
“I have been redeemed from the curse of the law and the blessing of Abraham is mine!”
WE ARE HEIRS! “There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is neither male nor female; for you are all one in Christ Jesus. And if you are Christ’s, then you are Abraham’s seed, and heirs according to the promise.” (Galatians 3:28-29 NKJV) In Christ, we are heirs of Abraham and we have inherited the blessing:
BE FRUITFUL AND MULTIPLY! “Then God BLESSED them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion…” (Genesis 1:28 NKJV) Living in The Blessing means that we are living fruitful, very productive lives to advance the Kingdom of God in the earth. This is the purpose of The Blessing! The Blessing also causes multiplication of our resources: finances, ability, influence, platform, lands and equipment, etc. Multiplication is how we get to the level of abundance where we are a blessing to others everywhere we go:
BE A BLESSING! “Now the LORD had said to Abram: “…I will make you a great nation; I will bless you And make your name great; And you shall BE a blessing…And in you ALL the families of the earth shall be blessed.” (Genesis 12:1-3 NKJV) To be a blessing means our lives are about GIVING not getting! Jesus said that it is more blessed to give than to receive. This means if we want to rise up to a higher level of blessing, it will come through our giving. This is how you get to the overflow level where we can be a blessing to ALL we come in contact with.
As you give your precious seed this month, you can be confident that it is going into good soil and will produce 30, 60 and 100 fold! Your prayers and giving are supporting our global TV ministry, On the Road to Freedom, airing on the VICTORY channel (Dish 265) and the DAYSTAR network. We just received a report that the DAYSTAR network is now reaching 1,670,258,554 homes, worldwide! That is about 4 billion Souls! We are humbled and thrilled at this holy opportunity God has given us to tell the nations how much He loves them. We understand that we could not do it without your help. We declare over your lives, “BE BLESSED! BE FRUITFUL and MULTIPLY!” In Jesus Name!
We love and honor you,
Mylon & Christi

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Praise the Lord, we want to begin this new year with praise and thanksgiving for the good God we serve! We continue to be amazed at His goodness. At the start of a new year, we want to build your faith for the upcoming year by sharing with you how your faith filled prayers and generous giving have already impacted the world for Jesus! One of our great joys is to receive your testimonies. III John 1:4 says, “I have no greater JOY than to hear that you walk in truth.” THANK YOU TEAM MYLON- You made this happen! These testimonies come in through our website or social media sites. Here’s what The Lord is doing through On The Road To Freedom:
“Saw you this morning and you were speaking on restoration; just what I needed to hear. Yesterday I cleaned out all my old court documents from my divorce. I was feeling stolen from in every way. I prayed with you for complete restoration of all things stolen.” Sylvia, Website
FREE FROM FEAR
“I listened to your message and understood faith better. I prayed with you against the spirit of fear, something that I had all my life, 66 years old and retired Border Patrol Agent. Today I’m free from that spirit. Better late than never.” Anonymous, Website
LIFTS US UP
“My husband and I watch On The Road To Freedom daily, even previous episodes we have already seen and SHARE on social media for others. The message is ALWAYS what we need to hear, lifts us up and revives us spiritually to battle the day-to-day issues that may come our way. You have both helped us more than you can imagine! Thank you!” Taylor, TN, Instagram
KNOWING GOD’S LOVE
“I was listening to the broadcast and took it to heart especially Proverbs 19:20 J I can truly say I’m in a much better Christ loving/leading place. I felt such an overwhelming outpouring of LOVE from GOD through you guys! I had been asking to know HIM and HIS LOVE for me because for years I looked for love in all the wrong places and now God is doing some miraculous things in my life.” Velonda, Website
“I just started listening/watching and I’m already feeling strengthened, encouraged, helped and free! I’ve listened to this video twice today!” Jovan, Instagram
“You talked about being in situations and saying "There is a lifting up!" Lately the circumstances are trying to speak louder and I keep casting them down, however, I find that my mood is instantaneously lifted when I calmly say, "There is a lifting up!" It brings instant peace and let's me focus on speaking God's promises. Thank you so much for your ministry.” Jenn, Instagram
SHARE THE SHOW
“I discovered your broadcast this past year and was immediately captivated by the style of your show! The way that you incorporate images of God's beautiful creation as a backdrop to the Scriptures is so wonderful! The first show that I tuned in to was filmed in Hawaii & you were on the subject of resisting fear. There was an instant peace that filled my spirit and I remember immediately thinking that I wanted to share your show with everyone I knew. Not only because of the unique style of filming, but most importantly, the fact that you saturate each show with Scriptures and not just your own opinion.” Mary, OH, Website
Glory to God! We rejoice with you in what the Lord is doing in your life and how he has used On The Road To Freedom. Be encouraged by these testimonies that as you give at the start of this year, your financial seed is going into good soil that is producing 30, 60 and 100 fold return! (Mark 4) Please continue to send us your praise reports at www.mylon.org. When we hear what the Lord has done for you, it proves again Philippians 1:6, “And I am certain that God, who began the good work within you, will continue his work until it is finally finished on the day when Christ Jesus returns.” We have great expectation that in 2020, your praise reports of the Goodness of God are going to astonish and amaze!!
We Love You,
Mylon and Christi

HOW TO REMAIN AT REST
Merry Christmas! It’s the most wonderful time of the year! But for many of us this holiday season is also one of the craziest times of the year. Last month we discussed the importance of entering into God’s rest but with all of the festive preparations, it’s important that we don’t let go of the rest that we have entered into! You may be thinking,
Is it possible to remain at rest during all the “hustle and bustle” of the season?
Yes! Rest only comes from absolute trust in God’s power not our ability or works! As long as we keep trying to “fix it”, we will never be at rest. Hebrews 4:9-10 explains, “There remains therefore a rest for the people of God. For he who has entered His rest has himself also ceased from his works as God did from His.” The Amplified version says when we enter the rest we have “ceased from the weariness and pain of human labor.” WooHoo, I’ll take it! How about you?
In fact, the only effort and labor we are instructed to do, is to REMAIN at rest!! Hebrews 4:11 teaches, “Let us therefore be zealous and exert ourselves and strive diligently to enter that rest [of God, to know and experience it for ourselves]…” It will require discipline to learn and experience for ourselves the true Sabbath rest of God when we are surrounded by chaos. But Praise God, He gives us the steps for remaining at rest. It begins in Hebrews 4:12: “For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” NKJV
Did you notice we go from striving to enter the rest in verse 11 directly into the power of the spoken word of God in verse 12? This is how you enter the rest and stay at rest- keep speaking The Word and His promises over your life! The Word is always effective! This is why we can rest: we LET THE WORD DO THE WORK!
Once we declare The Word by faith, Hebrews 4:14 reminds us that because Jesus is our High Priest, “…let us hold fast to our confession.” Our part: is to keep speaking His Word, not our concerns, worries or fears. We encourage you to continue to hold fast to the Word because The Word is working! Maybe you are thinking that because of your circumstances, this is just too hard. But Jesus understands. Verse 15 explains that He has sympathy and compassion for us, for He “has been tempted in every respect as we are, yet without sinning.” Jesus is FOR us! He is interceding on our behalf at the right hand of The Father. (Romans 8:34) Therefore, verse 16 says that when we need help, “Let us therefore come boldly to the throne of grace, that we may obtain mercy and find grace to help in time of need.” We need to be bold in receiving God’s grace to help us in time of need!
Between November’s letter and this month’s letter, we recognize a step-by-step process from God of how to enter His rest and remain at rest: 1) Everyday have ears to hear. 2) Do not harden your heart. 3) Choose absolute trust 4) By joining your faith with the Word you hear. 5) His Word will do the work when you speak the Word 6) Because Jesus is the High Priest of our confession- So hold fast! 7) If you need help, draw near to the throne of Grace!
We are determined more than ever to enter God’s rest. We are currently fasting, praying and persevering to enter in. As our partner, we are praying for you the same. Be encouraged that when you are a giver, one of the areas you can assuredly remain at rest, is in your finances. Be bold in declaring God’s promises of abundance over your seed. The Word is working! Please know we thank God for the precious gift you are to our lives. We pray you have the most restful and peaceful Christmas yet!
We Truly Love You,
Mylon & Christi

HOW TO ENTER GOD’S REST
Happy Thanksgiving! We so enjoy this holiday season every year. Especially this month when we are reminded to be thankful. We have had many challenges this year but we are truly grateful that because of the faithfulness of our God, we have had many more victories! In the midst of those challenges though, The Lord began to teach us on entering His rest.
Is it possible to have rest in the midst of the hardest challenges you ever faced? The answer is yes! God has outlined a step-by-step process in His Word of how to enter in. Let’s look at that in Hebrews Chapters 3 and 4.
WE MUST HAVE EARS TO HEAR! Four times in this passage of teaching on REST, we are instructed: “TODAY, if you will hear His voice, Do not harden your hearts as in the rebellion.” (Hebrews 3:15) Each day we wake up is…TODAY. This lets us know that we can hear the voice of the Lord everyday IF we choose to listen for His leading. This means we purposefully take time everyday to hear the Word in prayer, in teaching, in studying. Please understand that hearing the voice of the Lord is intentional. Then, when we hear the voice of the Lord, our instructions are:
DO NOT HARDEN YOUR HEART! How do we hear His voice and not harden our hearts? We must decide ahead of time that we will receive! Proverbs 19:20 teaches us, “Hear counsel, receive instruction and accept correction; that you may be wise in the time to come.” When we receive the instruction and counsel of God in His Word, even when it means correction, we are choosing obedience. Then God promises that we’ll have wisdom for what’s ahead; the wisdom we need to make wise choices that protect and bless us. But we won’t make those changes if we don’t:
CHOOSE to ABSOLUTELY TRUST GOD! Hebrews 3:18-19 explains that the children of Israel could not enter into the Promise Land because of unbelief: “And to whom did He swear that they would not enter His rest, but to those who did not obey? So, we see that they could not enter in because of unbelief.” When we hear God’s Word and don’t obey, according to God it is unbelief. If we don’t trust God, we will never be able to receive His rest. But we can make the wise choice today to trust God! Hebrews 4:1 says, “THEREFORE, WHILE the promise of entering His rest still holds and is offered [today]...”
No matter what choices you made yesterday, you can make the right choice today!
Finally, every time we come in contact with the Word, we JOIN OUR FAITH WITH THE WORD WE HEAR! Hebrews 4:2 AMPC instructs us, “For indeed we have had the glad tidings…proclaimed to us just as truly as they [the Israelites of old]; but the message they heard did NOT benefit them, because it was not mixed with FAITH (with the leaning of the entire personality on God in absolute trust and confidence in His power, wisdom, and goodness) by those who heard it…” We must choose to absolutely TRUST God in 3 things: His power - NOT our ability. His Wisdom – NOT our intellect. His goodness – NOT our works. Remember, the Promise Land was where the Lord was trying to get the Israelites! For us, this means when we trust Him and His promises, THIS is the place of REST!
What if you’re not quite ready to dive in? Well, the rest of Hebrews 4:2 explains, “…neither were they united in faith with the ones [Joshua and Caleb] who heard (did believe).” If you’re still growing in the area of faith, at least agree with those who are in faith by choosing to stay in agreement with either us or your pastors, spiritual leaders, etc. When we make the ultimate choice to absolutely trust God, Hebrews 4:3 confirms we will enjoy the rest of God: “For we who have BELIEVED do enter that REST…”
When you joined TEAM MYLON, you received our agreement in prayer! We can be those in your life who do believe and stand with you for the promises of God to be fulfilled! Please let us know your prayer requests at www.mylon.org. Be encouraged that your giving to help us share the Love of God around the world, is an act of faith that pleases God.
As you give in faith this month, be assured of God’s promises to you. You can trust and REST in Luke 6:38, “Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.” Glory to God, we are entering His Rest!
We Love You,
Mylon & Christi

FREEDOM FROM INSECURITY
Recently, we watched a touching movie where a poor man from the wrong part of town was suddenly backed by a billionaire. It was astonishing to see the tremendous freedom and restoration it brought to his life and family. It got me thinking,
How would you act if a billionaire was backing you?
Talk about confidence! I would stop worrying, analyzing and trying to figure out HOW my prayers were going to be answered. Not only would I start Dreaming BIG but I also would be stepping out and pursuing those dreams. Please let me remind you that we have the Creator of the Universe backing us and He owns it all! I Corinthians 10:26 says, “For the [whole] earth is the Lord's and everything that is in it.” When we know who we are IN CHRIST and what we have been given IN HIM, we will be free from any insecurity! Because of the precious blood of Jesus, the promises of God are given freely by His grace but we receive them through faith. (Ephesians 2:8) Our part is to simply believe.
WE HAVE AN INHERITANCE! Growing up, I used to imagine how it would be to suddenly inherit millions of dollars and live like Richie Rich in the comic books. But we don’t have to daydream about it, the truth is that when we gave our lives to Jesus, we inherited what Jesus did! We are joint heirs with Jesus. Romans 8:16-17 says, “The Spirit Himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs—heirs of God and joint heirs with Christ…” II Peter 1:3 says that “His divine power has given to us ALL things that pertain to life and godliness…” We have a rich inheritance.
WE ARE CHOSEN! Ephesians 1:3-6 says, “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with EVERY spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ, just as He CHOSE us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved.” No matter our past or ancestry, when we chose Jesus as our Lord and Savior, God adopted us into His family. We have available to us EVERY spiritual blessing. No more insecurity or low self-esteem: we are chosen, adopted and accepted.
WE ARE LOVED! John 3:16 “For God SO LOVED the world that He GAVE His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.” Because of God’s great love toward us, He gave us Jesus. His Love is what causes us to overcome in this life. Romans 8:37 says, “Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who LOVED us.” Verse 38-39 further explains that NOTHING “shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.” Guaranteed victory on this earth through the Love of God, now that’s security!
Please let us know how we can pray for you at www.mylon.org. We are ready to join our faith with yours! As you sow your precious seed this month, rejoice knowing that you have a rich inheritance, you are chosen and you are loved! Just as Paul said to those in Philippians 4:19 who sent an offering to his aid, we pray this same promise over you: “And my God will liberally supply (fill to the full) your every need according to His riches in glory in Christ Jesus!”
We love you and call you blessed,
Mylon & Christi
