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
