GLORY TO GOD!
“Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace, goodwill toward men!” Luke 2:14
When Jesus was born, the angels declared PEACE and GOODWILL to all men. That is what God continues to do for all who trust Him! The following praise reports came into the ministry this year by email and social media from our Team Mylon family. Because of your faithful partnership to build the kingdom of God in the earth, receive them as a Thank You from King Jesus:
ON THE ROAD TO FREEDOM
Marietta & Frank – “We are Roman Catholic and both became born again Christians viewing your telecast. We will never be the same.”
Amy – “I was having trouble in my marriage and Christi was speaking on how to be a good wife from Ephesians 5:33. I said, ‘I want to be a good wife to my husband’ and I saw in the Word what was pleasing to God. My marriage is restored and I have a love for my husband I never thought I could have. My life has changed; to God be the Glory!”
Patsy – “I can't even begin to put in words how the rich teaching in the word has been a river of living water that the Spirit led me to. During this COVID-19 stay at home time, God used you to bring me up higher.”
Wayne – “I saw your message today about forgiveness and our current situation in America. I want to sincerely thank you as I have NEVER heard a man of your ethnicity speak the Word so evenly balanced for all men. I am black, but in Christ we are all brothers and share the responsibility of becoming Christlike. Your word today gave me hope.”
REACHING THE NATIONS
KingStation TV, SWEDEN – “On the Road to Freedom is reaching a potential 1.4 million households with its subtitled program! We are reaching a large part of Scandinavia with the gospel!”
Agbi, NIGERIA – “I listen to your preaching. My life has a new turnaround.”
Elaine, AUSTRALIA – “Your program is an inspiration. I feel the peace of the Lord.”
Tanya, IRELAND – “I just watched your program on TV. So refreshing and completely unexpected ministry. I am watching from very far away.”
Rosie, ENGLAND – “Today as I heard your message, I was so reassured and I felt the Lord was confirming His word to me personally.”
THE GRACIOUS WOMAN
Elaine – “The Gracious Woman is rich with scripture, and the examples you provided from the Bible are impactful and well thought out. It is powerful but not condemning. I have experienced positive changes as a result.”
Cynthia – “I am married for 40 years and what a trip it has been! Would have been easier with The Gracious Woman to guide me. Well better late then never as the old saying goes.”
Darlene – “I really loved this book. It has made me want to surrender all to the Lord to see more of the blessing in my life, marriage and also with my children.”
Barbara – “I repent for my harshness. I humble myself Lord and receive Your grace.”
Brian – “You're new Faith Friday is spot on. I was built up in the inner man.”
Lisa – “Thank you for sharing the love of the Lord. I came home after a busy night of nursing and watched your Faith Friday episode. It was a word in season.”
Nan – “Each time I watch it's like a breath of fresh air and a cool drink of water to my soul. Your ministry has renewed my hope and determination to trust God in my life - particularly in my marriage.”
We can all agree that 2020 was a year of great change. But as you can see from these praise reports, God is faithful to perform His Word for those who believe and respond to it! As you sow your precious seed this month, we want you to know that we HONOR you. Your faith filled prayers and giving enable us to air On the Road to Freedom in every nation and tell them about our good God! Be encouraged that you will receive the same reward for every life that is blessed by this ministry. We are in this together.
We love you and wish you a very Merry Christmas!

This month we celebrate our national holiday of Thanksgiving. Now more than ever we need to tap into the power of being thankful. As our Pastor George Pearsons says, “Thanksgiving is the language of faith.” When we live by faith, we stay thankful. It is in times like our nation is experiencing right now that we find out what we really believe. When it looks impossible is how we learn that ALL things ARE possible IF we believe. Hebrews 11:1 says that “Now faith is…” So, NOW is the time to choose to trust God and be thankful!
Gratitude as defined in the Webster’s 1828 Dictionary says, “An emotion of the heart, excited by a favor or benefit received; thankfulness.” And “Gratitude is the feeling or sentiment excited by kindness; thanks are the expression of that sentiment.” We should never take the words: THANK YOU for granted. These simple words are the pure expression of a grateful heart to God for all He has done and to all those relationships who have blessed our lives.
So as a Team Mylon member, we want to say THANK YOU!! Now more than ever we are so grateful to have the gift of your faithful prayers and support: “We give thanks to God always FOR YOU, making mention of you in our prayers.” I Thessalonians 1:2
Our giving of thanks is very important to God. When we did a search of “Give thanks to The Lord,” we stopped counting at 50 references where we are instructed to BE THANKFUL. So, just in case you don’t know what to be thankful for, here are are few promises that will help get you praising God:
JESUS - “THANKS be to God for His indescribable gift!” II Corinthians 9:15
VICTORY - “But THANKS be to God, who gives us the VICTORY through our Lord Jesus Christ.” I Corinthians 15:57
GOD IS GOOD - “Oh, give THANKS to the LORD, for He is GOOD! For His mercy endures forever.” Psalms 107:1 NKJV
It’s important that we don’t just think about being thankful but that we voice our thanksgiving to God. It’s HOW we come into His presence where there is fullness of joy! Psalm 100:4 AMPC says, “Enter into His gates with thanksgiving and into His courts with praise! Be thankful and SAY SO, bless and affectionately praise His name!” Remember the expression of a grateful heart is saying “Thank you.” Let’s cultivate a holy habit of saying “Thank you Lord” all throughout the day.
Another benefit of thanksgiving is that it causes our prayers to be effective. Philippians 4:6 says, “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God.” Please let us encourage you today, to refuse to worry about anything but instead make your specific requests known to God with thanksgiving! Verse seven says “and the peace of God, which surpasses all understanding, will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” Thankfulness is the key to living in peace and joy. A life filled with gratitude is the blessed life!
As you give your precious sacrificial seed this month to help us take this message of thanksgiving all around the globe, rejoice knowing that God hears our prayers. He is working on your behalf and His plans to prosper you and give you a bright hope & future have not changed. (Jer. 29:11) That is still The Master Plan! Stay in Faith. God is causing ALL things to work together for your good! (Rom. 8:28) Be thankful and “Say So.” Your breakthrough is on its way!
Happy Thanksgiving and we love you,
Mylon and Christi
P.S. Don’t forget all the FREE resources we have available at www.mylon.org. Your giving helps us provide these resources at no charge to all those in need. When you keep your faith strong by studying God’s Word, you will enjoy a happy life!
ONE NATION UNDER GOD
We want to declare right at the beginning of this month’s teaching, The United States of America is “One Nation Under God!” Psalms 33:12 says, “BLESSED is the NATION whose God is the LORD…” The Blessing of The Lord is on the nation that honors God. Mylon and I recently watched several historical series about when a nation’s rulers were wicked, horrific suffering was inflicted upon the people because of their evil leadership. Proverbs 29:2 says, “When the righteous are in authority, the people rejoice; But when a wicked man rules, the people groan.” We should be so grateful to God that we have been given the holy privilege of voting for godly government leaders.
Some believe the church should be quiet on political matters. But as ministers of The Word of God, we cannot be silent when God’s Word clearly discusses the government of nations. According to Ephesians 4:11-12, our responsibility before God is that you are fully equipped and informed of what God’s Word says on EVERY issue: “And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ.”
God has given us a free will and He will NOT make the choice for us. Deuteronomy 30:19 says, “I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing; therefore CHOOSE life, that both you and your descendants may live.” Also in Joshua 24:15 we read, “Choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve…But as for me and my house, we will serve the LORD.” Please understand: you make the choice with your vote.
There are primarily 2 party platforms. We encourage you to read for yourself the platforms of both parties online. Find out where those platforms stand in light of the Word of God. For us who serve King Jesus, the Bible is the platform of the Kingdom of God! Isaiah 9:6 says, “For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given; And the government will be upon His shoulder…” According to The Word, there are 3 key questions you can ask yourself about the party platforms:
- What is their stand on Israel? Genesis 12:3 says of Israel, “I will bless those who bless you, And I will curse him who curses you; And in you all the families of the earth shall be blessed.”
- What is their stand on abortion? Proverbs 6:16-17 says, “These six things the LORD hates, Yes, seven are an abomination to Him: A proud look, A lying tongue, Hands that shed innocent blood…”
- Do they acknowledge The Lord? In Matthew 10:32 Jesus says, “Everyone who acknowledges Me publicly here on earth, I will also acknowledge before My Father in heaven.”
It is time for the church to speak up! This is not a time to be silent. Proverbs 28:1 says, “…the righteous are BOLD as a lion.” When we boldly honor God and His Word, He honors us! (I Samuel 2:30) We also know that Hebrews 10:38 says that faith is what pleases God and if we draw back in fear of man, we will not please Him.
“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the POWER of God to salvation for everyone who believes, for the Jew first and also for the Greek.” Romans 1:16
Don’t draw back where your giving is concerned! Your giving is making a difference and helping us to reach every nation in the world through “On the Road to Freedom” TV ministry. God is doing miracles for His people. We are receiving powerful testimonies of God’s provision, deliverance and protection. We declare over your seed sown that NOW is a time of supernatural increase. What’s ahead is GREATER than anything we’ve known put together thus far! God is ready to show up and prove once again that He is your God!!
Don’t forget to VOTE!
We Love you and we are praying for you every day,
Mylon & Christi
P.S. Please go to www.mylon.org to watch FREE faith-filled teaching anytime on demand! As you receive God’s Word, your faith will be strengthened to overcome EVERY challenge. Thank you again TEAM MYLON for your powerful prayers. We believe there is a great awakening to the love of God coming to our nation!!
Praise the Lord for 40 years of full time ministry! What a testimony to the faithfulness and goodness of our God! The Lord has sustained us through persecution, countless tests and trials, life threatening situations and even now in the current pandemic challenge. Because of HIS grace and mercy, we are still standing! Glory, Glory, GLORY TO GOD! As our partner, you are a vital part of this celebration. Because you give of your prayers and finances, the ministry is the most fruitful it has ever been; reaching EVERY NATION of the world with the Good News of The Gospel through our TV ministry, On the Road to Freedom. Thank you! We celebrate Jesus and YOU!
We would not have been able to endure had we not learned decades ago the difference between hoping and believing God. Hebrews 11:1 says, “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.” Hope is the blueprint for faith. It is the beginning of God’s promise being fulfilled. But if we want to see the promises of God manifested in our lives, we must move from hope to “fully persuaded faith.” (Rom. 4:21)“Therefore, [inheriting] the promise is the outcome of faith and depends [entirely] on faith…” Romans 4:16
We are very thankful that we both grew up in denominations that taught us salvation, the infilling of the Holy Spirit and the power of prayer. But when revelation of the Word of Faith came, it literally saved our lives: “Now the just shall LIVE by FAITH; But if anyone draws back, My soul has no pleasure in him.” (Hebrews 10:38) As we have continued to allow the Word of God to renew our mind, (Romans 12:2) Jesus has set us free from the the spirit of fear, sickness and disease, oppression and depression, debt and lack. We became free AND FREE INDEED!
We are so thankful for the other streams in the body of Christ that we glean from but we understand that our specific call is to preach faith. We believe the Word of God is The FINAL AUTHORITY.
“But what does it say? “The word is near you, in your mouth and in your heart” (that is, the word of faith which we preach):” Romans 10:8
If we truly believe what God says and keep His words in our mouth, we will have what we say. Until you settle this issue, you’ll be hoping the word of God is true instead of having NO DOUBT that God’s Word works. Mark 11:24 says,“Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, BELIEVE that you receive them, and you WILL HAVE them.” If you agree, say this with us as a declaration of your faith, “If God said it, I believe it and that settles it!”
Wherever we are in our walk with the Lord, whether a baby Christian or saved many years, to grow up into fully persuaded faith, we must keep hearing…and hearing…and hearing The Word of God! How much faith we have depends on how much we hear: “So then faith comes by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.” Romans 10:17
The reason we offer so many FREE resources to you at www.mylon.org is to help you continue hearing the Word. All of our weekly On the Road to Freedom episodes are available anytime on demand. Also, you can watch our “Church on the Run” daily digital devotionals on our Facebook page or our YouTube channel. As you feed on God’s Word, it will keep you strong so that you can triumph in every trial!
As you sow your precious seed this month, be encouraged that your giving is supporting others hearing the Word of God that will make them free. Because of your faith filled agreement, you will receive eternal reward for every life this ministry reaches until Jesus returns and we are outta’ here! We remind you of this truth that we live by and close every show with: Stay in The Word because that will keep you…On the Road to Freedom.
Praising God for 40 years of full time ministry!
We love you and pray for you every day,
P.S. We wish we could show you all the wonderful praise reports that come in daily of healing, restoration, salvation and deliverance. Your cherished partnership is making a difference for the kingdom of God in the earth! THANK YOU again.
Do you React or Respond?
Right up front we want you to know that we are praying for you today! You are not in this “fight of faith” alone. There isn’t a day that goes by that we and our prayer team aren’t standing with you for VICTORY! And we THANK YOU for your faith filled prayers, encouraging emails and beautiful notes! We understand how much your agreement strengthens us to do the will of God. He designed us for relationship in “the household of faith” and we need each other to finish our course with JOY! We are ANOINTED to shine as bright lights “in the midst of a crooked and perverse generation” (Phil. 2:15) and lead the nations to JESUS!
In the current crises environment: global pandemic, uncertain economy and dangerous riots, Isaiah 60:1-3 says that the glory of The Lord rises upon His children! But how can we shine in the midst of such “deep darkness?” One answer is found in James 1:19 NIV, “My dear brothers and sisters, take note of this: Everyone should be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to become angry, because human anger does not produce the righteousness that God desires.” We can only obey this instruction if when challenged, we choose to respond and NOT react.
The definition of REACT is “To return an impulse.” The definition of RESPOND is simply, “To answer; to reply.” When we react, we are choosing to act impulsively; driven by our emotions, fear, anger or offense. But when we choose instead to respond, there is NO DRAMA. No outbursts. King Jesus is our perfect example! In Mark 4:35, 37-40 we see Jesus’ calm, measured response under pressure:
“On the same day, when evening had come, He said to them, “Let us cross over to the other side.”And a great windstorm arose, and the waves beat into the boat, so that it was already filling. But He was in the stern, asleep on a pillow. And they awoke Him and said to Him, “Teacher, do You not care that we are perishing?” Then He arose and rebuked the wind, and said to the sea, “Peace, be still!” And the wind ceased and there was a great calm. But He said to them, “Why are you so FEARFUL? How is it that you have NO FAITH?”
Jesus said the disciples’ emotional reaction was based in fear = the absence of faith. He responded to this life or death situation by saying (not screaming or tearfully pleading) “Peace, be still!” Please get this: there is no faith in emotional outbursts! And we know that faith is what pleases God. Hebrews 11:6 says, “But without faith it is impossible to please Him...” If you don’t get anything else, please get this:
FAITH RESPONDS. FEAR REACTS.
II Timothy 1:7 NKJV teaches us, “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” We must refuse to react emotionally because of the spirit of fear: Fear that we will lose our job or our bills won’t be paid. Fear that we or a loved one will get COVID-19. Any fear based emotional reaction produces: NO power. NO love. NO soundness of mind. Not only will our faith not work without love but confusion sets in and we can’t make wise decisions. Someone who is ruled by their emotions is what we would define as a “Drama Queen.” The definition of emotion is the “moving of the mind or soul.” Now do you see how serious this is? We don’t allow anything to move our mind or soul but our FAITH IN GOD AND IN HIS WORD!!
That is why we have so many FREE resources available to you at www.mylon.org! We want to help you stay spiritually strong so that you can respond in faith to every challenge. As you give your precious financial seed this month to send The Gospel to every nation through “On the Road to Freedom”, we are declaring that The Blessing of The Lord in your life is EXPONENTIAL: “a very rapid increase!” Don’t back off of your faith:
It is in our times of greatest tests that God is ready to give us our GREATEST VICTORY!!
We love you and pray for you every day,
Mylon & Christi
P.S. Mylon’s new teachings titled, “Absolute Faith” or “How to Enter God’s Rest” are powerful tools to help you make right choices. Both CDs are available on our website. THANK YOU again for all you give to help us share the Love of God around the world! Together, we are making a difference for Jesus!
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!

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
