News / Goodness of God!
This is a VICTORY in the MAKING! 🎉
In the midst of one adversity after another, these powerful prophetic words from our father in the faith, Kenneth Copeland, were like a shining lighthouse in the raging storm. We explained to Brother Copeland that in each and every evil attempt to “steal, kill and destroy” God had faithfully delivered us every time. He suddenly declared, “This is a victory in the making!”
Of course we would all prefer for our victories to be instantaneous. We’d love it if the moment we make our bold declaration everything would immediately change right before our eyes. In the spirit, that’s exactly what happens. But the manifestation in the natural many times unfolds one day at a time. That’s where the fight of faith is, in waiting upon The Lord. When facing a battle that may rage day after day, week after week and possibly year after year, our confidence can be affected.
Confidence is defined as “trust, assurance, safety and security, boldness; courage.” For example: Do we trust that our future is assured? Is our family going to be safe? Do we have job security? In the midst of this cancel culture, how bold can I be? Will I have the strength to courageously face each crisis? These are all questions that involve confidence. But He has given us a promise that will give us confidence in every crisis:
“Now this is the confidence that we have in Him, that if we ask anything according to His will, He hears us. And if we know that He hears us, whatever we ask, we know that we have the petitions that we have asked of Him.” I John 5:14-15 NKJV
Glory to God!! When we pray according to His will which is His Word, we KNOW that He hears us. When we are confident that our Heavenly Father hears our prayers then we KNOW our prayers are being answered! Unwavering confidence comes from KNOWING.
“And we KNOW that ALL things work together for good to those who love God, to those who are the called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28 NKJV
We can have confidence knowing that all things right now are working together for our good.
Recently, we heard The Lord clearly say, “Your best days are ahead of you.” We realized we had been thinking with affection about what life used to be like before all of the trials that began in 2020. That’s easy to do especially if in the last year we’ve had the most intense challenges we’ve ever experienced. Here are a few examples: Are we thinking with sentiment about life before COVID? Or maybe what life was like before we or a loved one received that incurable or terminal diagnosis? The apostle Paul, a mighty man of God who wrote 14 books of the New Testament said that he still had to work on this area of forgetting the past:
“No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.” Philippians 3:13-14 NLT
In obedience to The Lord we must stay focused and keep looking forward. Jesus is coming soon and every one of us are called to finish our race. Remember, we serve THE GREATER ONE. HE LIVES IN US! I John 4:4 KJV says, “Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is He that is IN YOU, than he that is in the world.” As we trust in His faithfulness, He IS working on our behalf. Say this with me, “We have the victory in Christ Jesus. It’s already won. It’s already done!”
As you sow your generous seed this month, you can be confident knowing that an abundant harvest is coming because Luke 6:38 NLT promises, “Give, and you will receive. Your gift will return to you in full—pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, running over, and poured into your lap. The amount you give will determine the amount you get back.” WooHoo! When we give our best to The Lord, get ready for an abundant over the top harvest coming your way! Let’s say together, “2021 is my year of Divine Healing, Divine Health, Divine Prosperity and Divine Recovery!”
We Love and appreciate you,
Mylon and Christi
P.S. VISION UPDATE: We want to thank you again for your generosity that helped the ministry tremendously as Mylon has been recovering from surgery. The Lord supernaturally strengthened Mylon and we were able to drive to Hot Springs, AR and film 10 On the Road to Freedom shows in September. We’ll also be filming on an island near Galveston later this month. The editing costs of each show, run approximately $6,000 each for 52 shows a year. We continue to receive reports daily of those whose lives are being changed as they are set on their road to freedom. We count it a great honor and privilege to be an encouragement to you!!
“This is the Lords doing and it is marvelous in our eyes!” Psalm 118:23
It was such a dream come true to begin filming our first TV show, “On the Road to Freedom” last month. After filming several broadcasts on our testimony, we were reminded again of how faithful the Lord has been to us all these years and the lives we have had the honor of ministering to. We thought it would be a blessing to you too! Here are a few testimonies from Church on the Run Viewers:
“Today’s teaching is just what I needed. I’m holding on to Jesus and He is holding me tightly. Praise God!” Sandy, Internet
“I look forward to seeing this every day!” Kenny, Internet
“Thank you for your honest, encouragement and coolness too in keeping it real. I will share this.” Brian, Internet
“As usual, exactly the right Word, exactly when I need it. Thanks!” Holly, Internet
“This message is so comforting and so needed! It’s a blessing to me how real and so down to earth you both are in spreading God’s word and encouragement around the world! Love you both!” Norma, Internet
“Perfect Timing, I needed that right now.” Tim, Internet
If you haven’t already, check out CHURCH ON THE RUN at www.mylon.org. We believe it will be “the right word at the right moment” (Prov. 15:23) Here’s a few more powerful testimonies of how Mylon and Broken Heart impacted lives for the Kingdom:
“I got born again at a Mylon and Broken Heart concert. His music not only changed my life, it drew me into a deeper relationship with the Lord. Today, I am a minister for the Lord, still on fire for Christ.” Dr. Kyle, Internet
“I gave my life to Christ at a Mylon & Broken Heart concert. The presence of God was tangible at that concert and I remember looking across a crowd of over 10 thousand people and seeing their hands raised toward heaven, then hearing God call me to him.” Terry, AL
“In 1987, When Mylon and the band came onstage I was blown away. Then he preached and said things I had never heard a preacher say. And for the first time, I believed. At the altar call, I was the first person to get to the stage. With my wife of 15 years we are still loving God with all we are and all we have!” Ken, CO
“I was a sheltered preacher’s kid and thought you could never be cool and actually be a Christian. Mylon taught me that I could be myself, long hair and all, and still love Jesus. I was not a rebellious kid, I just thought that you had to look a certain way to be a Christian. Then when I went to Mylon’s concerts I could feel the love of a living God. I wanted to know Jesus. So I asked Him into my heart at Mylon’s concert in Florida in 1988. My life has never been the same.” Ray, AL
“I’ve followed your ministry since the Broken Heart days. I used to get frustrated when you’d stop to bring the Word in the middle of a concert. I see now that it was the most important part of the program!” DW, Internet
Wow! Every time I read these, I tear up at the goodness of God. It is truly a privilege to serve the Lord and do His Will. Nothing satisfies like being in the perfect will of God! We pray these testimonies were a great encouragement and reminder to you that your agreement with us is making a difference. As you sow your precious seed this month, please know that we are extremely grateful for all you give to help us share the Love of God around the world! Together we will take a bunch of people to heaven with us!
We sure do love you!
Mylon & Christi

SEND NOW PROSPERITY
We rejoice and we are glad; because this is the day our Lord has made! Christi and I praise God for all the good things He is doing right now in our marriage, family, ministry and our nation! We also look ahead with great expectation to see the desires He has placed in our hearts come to pass! But these divine dreams are BIG. Have you noticed that about God? He will never call you to do something that doesn’t require faith, an absolute trust and dependence on Him alone to fulfill. This God given dream Christi and I have is no different. It will require a BIG increase in ability, opportunities, finances and creative ideas for fulfillment. So this prayer in Psalm 118 is what the Lord recently showed us to pray.
It begins with being thankful. We will never see future dreams come to pass if we are not thankful now for the desires He has already granted. After choosing to rejoice and be thankful, then we see the request made to the Lord. Christi and I have been praying this daily, “This is the day The Lord has made. We rejoice and we are glad in it! We ask you Lord to SEND NOW PROSPERITY and give us GREAT SUCCESS!” This request is not for our own benefit: to own a big house, drive a fancy car and have a big flat screen TV. Of course, there’s nothing wrong with having those things. But God’s purpose for prosperity is so that we can BE A BLESSING. To advance the kingdom of God in the earth and to help more people. When this is your motive, then He can trust you with all of the “things.”
Psalms 112 teaches us that a righteous man is one who honors the Lord by delighting to do His will (more than His own.) Several times it states that a righteous man is a generous giver. Because of the right choices He has made, verse three says, “Prosperity and welfare (wealth and riches) are in his house, and his righteousness endures forever.” There are some who think that you have to be poor to be holy or humble. But please notice that this man’s righteousness is intact even with wealth and riches in his house! God wants you BLESSED!
Isaiah 48:17-18 says, “I am the Lord your God, Who teaches you to profit, Who leads you in the way that you should go. Oh, that you had paid attention to My commandments! Then your peace and prosperity would have been like a [flowing] river…” God is ready to teach us His ways so that we may profit in all of our endeavors. But we must look to Him not ourselves: our business savvy, strong work ethic, our popularity, etc. The Lord must be our sole source of supply. He has the plan. But this verse says that Israel decided to go their own way and missed out on peace and prosperity so abundant that it would have flowed like a river! That’s an unending source of constant supply. Praise The Lord that stirs me up! It’s time to pay attention.
Please notice that God’s prosperity always includes His perfect peace! In Strong's Concordance Peace/Shalom means “completeness, wholeness, health, peace, welfare, safety soundness, tranquility, prosperity, perfectness, fullness, rest, and harmony, the absence of agitation or discord.” I can tell you from my own experience of making millions in rock and roll that you don’t want prosperity without peace. I was miserable! Without God, the money is devoured by sin and bad choices. Proverbs 10:22 explains, “The blessing of the Lord—it makes [truly] rich, and He adds no sorrow with it [neither does toiling increase it].” Truly rich includes what money can’t buy: peace, health, safety and harmony in your relationships. In addition, God’s way doesn’t require us working more hours. That’s truly rich!
As you sow your precious seed this month, be excited that because of your obedience to give to the work of the kingdom, you are paying attention to His commands. Therefore, The Lord is teaching you to profit. Get ready for creative concepts, witty inventions and uncommon favor with those who are in authority over you! According to Psalms 35:27, it’s time to shout for joy, be glad and “Say continually, ‘Let the Lord be magnified, Who takes pleasure in the prosperity of His servant!”
We Love You,
Mylon & Christi
P.S. Thank you again for your faithful support each month. We pray over your seed that the Lord would “Send now prosperity and give you great success!” If you would like further teaching on this subject, please check out Mylon’s latest CD, “Faith for Supernatural Increase.” We are taking this message of the blessing of The Lord everywhere we go. God wants His children blessed so that we can be a BIG blessing!

RECEIVE THE LOVE OF GOD
Mylon and I don’t take these monthly love letters to you lightly. We pray and ask the Lord for direction on how He would have us encourage you. This month, I’d like to share with you some of my testimony about how I received the Love of the Father…
What made the difference for me? I get asked that question a lot. Why was I not angry over my biological father walking away and leaving me and my mom alone without any support? Why did I not go through rebellious teenage years experimenting with drugs or alcohol and refusing to obey my parents? I remember when others began to ask me these questions, I thought it was strange because it never entered my mind growing up to abandon my walk with the Lord. I only desired to know Him more. Not that I didn’t make many mistakes and need the mercy of God daily. But I can say that I was determined to stay in fellowship with Him through prayer, reading His Word and attending church. So, after observing the status of so many angry youth today, I now ask myself, what made the difference for me?
To answer that question I have to begin with a story I call, “The Adventures of Twirling Girl.” (If you would like to hear this story in its entirety, you can hear it on the CD that accompanies The Adventures of Twirling Girl children’s book available at www.mylon.org) It’s the moment in my life when I chose to believe and receive the Love of God.
At a very young age, when my earthly daddy walked away, my mother taught me Psalms 68:5, “A father to the fatherless is God.” She reminded me daily that I have a Heavenly Father who loves me and He will meet every need. Then He proved it to me! Like every other child, I was growing fast and constantly outgrew my shoes and clothes. At one point, I needed dresses for church. It was a time when every little girl wore her prettiest dresses to church and twirled on the playground. We were living in government subsidized housing and on a very strict budget. So buying church dresses was definitely not an option. But my mom was learning and teaching me, to take everything to the Lord in prayer. In her innocence, she believed that He would hear her prayer. Even if it was for something that others would call lavish…pretty twirling dresses for her little girl!
Shortly after my mom and I prayed together asking the Lord for help, a young man who was a Christ for the Nations bible student, was walking though the children’s section at Sears department store. Oddly, he was prompted by the Holy Spirit to buy some little girls dresses. This young man was single, with no children and he was a student! So any extra money was paying for his education. Obedience to the Lord would require sacrifice for him and a total step of faith. He didn’t know who the dresses were for, so he didn’t know the size or even the right style to buy (He was a single guy!) Despite those uncertainties, he obeyed The Lord and bought the dresses in faith. The next day, when he was walking by my mom in the hallway at work, the Holy Spirit said, “Those dresses are for Sharon’s little girl, Christi.” (It thrills me that He knows my name! Jesus said, “I know my sheep and I call them by name.” Please be encouraged, He knows your name! He understands your challenges today and He hears your prayers.) When my mom brought those dresses home to me, her declaration wasn’t ‘Look how good we prayed,’ it was ‘Look how much your Father loves you! He gave you these pretty new dresses!’ And yes, they fit perfectly! On the church playground, I remember twirling and telling all who would listen, “Look how much my Father loves me! He gave me these pretty new dresses!”
That story for me is what Ephesians 3:19 calls an experience with the love of God that “far surpasses mere knowledge.” It was good that my mom told me how much I was loved but then God proved it to me! It was through that encounter that I chose to believe at a young age, the Father loved me. I John 4:19 says, “We love because He first loved us.” He loved us FIRST. When we receive it, then we can love Him in return. Out of that love, we find that we want to do all that He asks us to do. Jesus said, “If you love Me, you will obey My commandments.” Love motivates our obedience. Believing and receiving the love of God, THIS is what made the difference in my life. This is what will make a difference in your life!
As you sow your generous seed this month, be encouraged that the GREATEST expression of LOVE is GIVING: “For God SO LOVED the world that HE GAVE…” When you give to the kingdom, it is the HIGHEST expression of your Love for the Lord. Let’s be expressions of His Love in the earth, being a blessing to others everywhere we go! The Love of God…IT makes ALL the difference!!
We Love You,
Mylon and Christi
PS Please be assured that your financial seed is working to share His Love to the thousands we are reaching on the internet, TV, prisons and churches. We’d love to share the Love of God with you this year at one of our upcoming meetings. Please check our itinerary at www.mylon.org to see if you can attend. Bring a friend! We believe for an encounter with His Love in 2017 that changes everything!
JUDGE GOD FAITHFUL
It’s the beginning of a New Year! What an exciting time to be alive. We were predestined to live in this moment in time before Jesus returns, and the final anointing is available to us who believe! This year we are going to witness glorious manifestations of His faithfulness! At the start of each year, Christi and I take time to look back in amazement and acknowledge (We write it all down & discuss) all the good things the Lord accomplished in our lives in 2016. As we remind ourselves of His faithfulness, He then reveals us what we need to believe and declare for the upcoming year. This year is no different:
Other versions say, “…Sarah received the ability to conceive” and “…Sarah received physical power to conceive a child, even when she was long past the normal age for it.” Conceiving a child in old age represents to us, what man calls IMPOSSIBLE. Sarah had tried to have children from her youth and I’m sure she was resolved to the fact that she was not able to conceive. But the TRUTH of God’s Word (His promises to us) will change the facts (the natural circumstance) when we believe! In Genesis 18:14 God says, “Is anything too difficult or too wonderful for the Lord? At the appointed time, when the season comes, I will return to you and Sarah will have a son.”
After hearing the promise, Sarah had to make a choice. Surely, she was weary and discouraged after waiting her entire life for a child. Her body was telling her it’s too late. Her mind and heart were asking, ‘Could she really get her hopes up again?’ At some point the Word tells us that she made the choice and “by faith Sarah received the strength and power to conceive seed.” This means, the ability to dream again. She saw the impossible come to pass by faith. Was her faith demonstrated through tears or endless days of fasting and prayer? No, the Word says that she simply, “JUDGED HIM FAITHFUL!” Sarah chose to believe that God would keep His promise. Could our dreams coming true really be that simple? Yes, it is!
To judge can be defined as: To hear and determine a case. To examine and decide; to pass sentence on. We need to take a moment and ask ourselves, when the gavel comes down, have we judged God faithful or unfaithful concerning our case? What is our final ruling concerning God and His promises? The truth is that if we judge God faithful, we won’t be worried, frustrated or upset. If we are feeling hopeless and ready to quit remember that Sarah gave birth to the promise when she was “too old” and “beyond the proper time of life.” We are never too old for our dreams to come true! It is never too late for God!
We would love to see you at one of our upcoming meetings to inspire you to DREAM AGAIN! Don’t forget our anointed resources: teaching CD’s, books, music, etc. available at www.mylon.org. Please be encouraged that when you sow your precious seed each month, you have chosen to “judge God faithful Who has promised” you an abundant harvest! Our seed takes time to grow. Galatians 6:9 reminds us to “Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up.” Don’t quit if it seems like the promise is taking a long time. Proverbs 28:20 says that “a person who wants quick riches will get into trouble” but “A faithful man will ABOUND with BLESSINGS!” The kingdom of God operates “Line upon line. Precept upon precept.” Faithfulness (Trust and reliance on The Lord) day in and day out will result in an upcoming year of supernatural abundance. Why? Because we judge God faithful!
You are valued. You are appreciated. You are loved!

What a wonderful time of year! This holiday month is one of our favorites. Of course, we really enjoy a delicious turkey & dressing, mashed potatoes & gravy, and pumpkin pie meal, HA! But our true joy comes as we are reminded of all the good things God has done for us throughout the year. As you may already know, being thankful is an attitude that we as Christians should have every day of our lives! The Word explains that it is THE key to living in constant victory:
Please notice that PRAISE PRECEDES THE VICTORY! Praising God before we see the answer to our prayer is FAITH! Faith is what pleases the Lord and it is how we access GRACE. All 7000 “exceedingly great and precious” promises of God are given “By grace” and received “through faith…” I Corinthians 10:30 says, “For if I by grace be a partaker…for that for which I give thanks?” When we give thanks, we partake of Grace. Grace is defined as “underserved favor.” But if I think I deserve it, then Grace is out of the picture and I have become unthankful. Please understand this life-changing truth: WE CAN’T BE THANKFUL FOR SOMETHING WE THINK WE DESERVE OR WE BELIEVE WE HAVE EARNED. That’s the definition of works. Every good thing in our life is all because of our faithful Heavenly Father Who “transferred us out of the kingdom of darkness into the kingdom of the Son of His Love.” We did not earn The Blessing and we definitely don’t deserve it. My goodness, we don’t want what we deserve because God said: “ALL have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” But King Jesus paid the price for our sin so that we could be reconciled to the Father, Glory to God, that’s grace!
We have been watching an anointed teaching from Keith Moore on this subject, titled THANKSGIVING VICTORY. (You can go online at www.moorelife.org and download the teaching for free!)
He said the Lord asked him one day, “Would you like to increase your capacity to receive from Me?” When Brother Moore said, “Yes, Sir!” The Lord said to him, “Cultivate a lifestyle of thanksgiving.” Lifestyle means at all times, we choose to be thankful. We are either THANKFUL or UNTHANKFUL. There is no middle ground! For example, when we feel sorry for ourselves, we’re not being thankful. We need to follow the example of Abraham. After waiting many years for the fulfillment of God’s promise to him concerning his son Isaac being born, Romans 4:20 says, “No unbelief or distrust made him waver (doubting and questioning) concerning the promise of God, but he grew strong and was empowered by faith as he gave praise and glory to God…” He stayed thankful even when it looked impossible. His son Isaac was born when he was 100 years old! It’s never too late for God to do the impossible in our lives!
We’d love the opportunity to praise God with you at one of our local ministry events. Please check our itinerary at www.mylon.org to see when we will be in your area. Don’t forget that all of our anointed teaching and music CD’s are also available on our site to keep your faith strong in the midst of negative reports. As you can see from the daily news, now, more than ever we need to be sharing the good news of the Gospel with those who desperately need to hear that Jesus loves them. We need your help. As you sow your generous seed this month, you help us share His love. Romans 10:14-15 says, “But how can they call on him to save them unless they believe in him? And how can they believe in him if they have never heard about him? And how can they hear about him unless someone tells them? And how will anyone go and tell them without being sent? Thank you for sending us. Your agreement is one of the gifts from God that we are most thankful for!
Praising God for you!
We Love you,
Mylon & Christi
P.S. Please be encouraged that through your generous prayer and financial support, together we believe we will see more people saved, healed and set free through the teaching of the Word than ever before in the history of this ministry! Please believe with Christi and me for OPEN DOORS!
