SONG OF DELIVERANCE
For The Lord is GOOD and His mercy endures forever! This past month, while laying hold of our greatest victory also came one of our greatest faith tests to date. As we have been seeking The Lord for His wisdom and spending time in His Word to receive revelation, we were prompted that many of you may also be in the midst of one of the biggest faith tests of your life. We want to encourage you today that our God surrounds you with songs of deliverance!
“You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance.” Psalms 32:7 NIV
Another psalm that has been a source of great comfort and strength to us is Psalms 34. Seven times David specifically mentions how The Lord delivers, redeems and saves his life. We encourage you to read these verses out loud and meditate on these powerful promises (NKJV):
Verses 1-3 “I will bless the LORD at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth. My soul shall make its boast in the LORD; The humble shall hear of it and be glad. Oh, magnify the LORD with me, And let us exalt His name together.” It’s vitally important to offer up the sacrifice of praise in times of trial.
Verses 4-5 “I sought the LORD, and He heard me, And delivered me from all my fears. They looked to Him and were radiant, And their faces were not ashamed.” As we keep our eyes focused on Jesus and His Word, we are filled with joy.
Verses 6-9 “This poor man cried out, and the LORD heard him, And saved him out of all his troubles. The angel of the LORD encamps all around those who fear Him, And delivers them. Oh, taste and see that the LORD is good; Blessed is the man who trusts in Him! Oh, fear (reverence) the LORD, you His saints! There is no want to those who fear Him.” When we choose to seek, revere and worship Him, we want for NOTHING!
Verse 15 “The eyes of the LORD are on the righteous, And His ears are open to their cry.” Did you notice how many times David affirms that The Lord hears us when we pray? So cry out to Him today!
Verses 17-19 “The righteous cry out, and the LORD hears, And delivers them out of all their troubles. The LORD is near to those who have a broken heart, And saves such as have a contrite spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, But the LORD delivers him out of them ALL.”
Notice that many are the afflictions of the righteous. So we should not think it strange when we are facing “trials and tribulations.” According to this psalm, our first step to deliverance is PRAISE. Second, is to fervently SEEK HIM, look solely to Him and cry out to Him. He is our HELP in time of need! We reverence Him as King of Kings and Lord of Lords. As we honor His Word, He promises to HEAR US and DELIVER US!
So no matter how impossible the trial or challenge may seem, we can be full of hope. We can sing a new song to the Lord; a song of deliverance. Please check out Mylon’s praise and worship CDs to help you bless The Lord at all times. As you sow your precious seed this month, we are in agreement with you that as you seek Him, revere and worship Him, there is NO LACK in your life of any good thing! We may have pressure on every side but declare with us, “The Lord delivers us out of them all!”
We Love you and we are praying for you every day,
Mylon and Christi
P.S. We are thankful to inform you that we have paid for Phase 2 of our On the Road to Freedom TV gear/equipment! We have now ordered Phase 3 of $8,500.00 and will be completing payment in the next 60 days, pending delivery. THANK YOU for your generous giving that is helping us to reach the nations with this message of deliverance. We praise God for you.
A DREAM COME TRUE!
“When the LORD brought back the captivity of Zion, We were like those who dream.” Psalms 126:1
We have been waiting for 6 months to share some of the most exciting news we’ve ever shared with you! Back in August we watched the live services of the Believers Convention. There were several ministers who mentioned writing down the vision according to Habakkuk 2:2. Our number one vision will always be: having the honor and privilege of leading at least ONE MILLION people to JESUS. We have seen hundreds of thousands come to Christ in 40 years of ministry but the next step is the MILLION flow! We had been seeking God all of 2020 but now we wrote down our divine dreams, prayed over them, declared the promises of God and took communion that day in August. Four days later we received a phone call from a stranger that changed our lives.
Through a mutual connection, this man asked to speak with Mylon. His name is Robert Deaton and he is an Emmy Award winning producer of over 500 music videos, Executive Producer of the Country Music Association (CMA) Awards and the Billboard Music Awards, just to name a few. He has been a fan of Mylon’s music since his rock and roll days of the 1970’s. He went on to explain that he had been approached by Kingdom Story Company to direct a movie and was there any project he would like to do?
He had lost touch with Mylon but recently reconnected through watching On the Road to Freedom. As he began to pray and research Mylon’s life story and music, he suddenly knew, this is the project he wanted to do! His words were, “I want to do something that makes a difference for The Lord!” Unbeknownst to us, as we had been fervently seeking The Lord, Robert had been preparing for this presentation to the Kingdom Story owners for months. (God is preparing your miracle right now too!) He was halfway through the presentation when they stopped him and said, “You don’t need to go any further, we went to Mylon’s concerts too. Let’s do this!”
So when he and Mylon finally connected, he was super excited for this new opportunity to share the love of God with the world through Mylon’s testimony. We were still hesitant though because this is the 4th movie opportunity that has come our way in the past 5 years. But the difference here is the Kingdom Story Company and the well known and respected Erwin Brothers. www.kingdomstory.com They are the creators of the hit movie, “I Can Only Imagine”, one of the top grossing Christian films of all time.
Their huge success gained them distribution from LIONSGATE, whose films have grossed more than $10 billion worldwide over the past 6 years. This simply means that these companies have the ability and resources to take the redemption message of this movie literally around the world. But what is most valuable to us is the motivation of Robert Deaton and The Erwin Brothers: Their fierce love for The Lord and unwavering commitment to His call to spread the Gospel.
Before proceeding, we took the time to pray and seek the Lord if this was HIS plan. He immediately reminded us of what He said when the opportunity for our TV show, On the Road To Freedom came from Kenneth Copeland and the VICTORY Channel. He said, “I’ve opened a door for you that no man can close!”
Therefore, after months of prayer, phone calls and meetings, we are thrilled to share with you that we are moving forward! A movie is usually a 2-3 year project. So the reason we wanted to share this with you now is to request the power of your agreement. Especially in these past few years, when you have joined your faith with ours it has resulted in immediate breakthroughs and answers!
“Again I say to you that if two of you AGREE on earth concerning ANYTHING that they ask, IT WILL BE DONE for them by My Father in heaven.” Matthew 18:19 NKJV
May we request your prayers upon the first phase of this dream?
- Anointing upon the director, Robert, and the Kingdom Story team.
- For the right script writer and a powerful script.
- The right actors anointed by God to play each part.
- The right filming location.
The success of this movie will introduce our TV show to millions of people who have never studied the Bible until now! We continue to be in AWE of God’s goodness. This is truly “exceedingly, abundantly ABOVE ALL that we could ask, think, dream or imagine!”
As you sow your sacrificial seed this month, we encourage you to “Write the vision. Make it plain.” Get in agreement with your mate or a faith filled friend and declare the vision and promises of God over your seed. We believe that at the end of this year we’ll all be saying, especially for our nation, “The Lord has turned our captivity and we are like those who dream!” Just watch and see what miracles God will perform in 2021!
We love you and we are praying for your victory every day,
Mylon and Christi
P.S. If you want to stay updated on the progress of the movie, please follow us on any of our social media platforms. THANK YOU also for your special gifts last month that have helped us buy more of our TV equipment. We are now only $17,000 away from completion!!
At the beginning of this new year, we want to declare to you the faithfulness of our God! It is obvious that Jesus is coming soon and therefore, we are living in a time that is unprecedented. For example, in our lifetime we have never seen a plague literally shut down every nation in the world. It’s been 60 years since we have experienced such violent civil unrest and rioting on a national level that destroyed entire communities. And now for the first time in history, we pray and stand for a just outcome for this presidential election so that every legal vote may count.
On a personal note, last month, we both tested positive for COVID, so we were quarantined in our home for the holidays and could not see any family or friends. It was not what we were expecting but we are happy to report that Jesus is our Healer! All this to say that through it all, we have seen the faithfulness of God proven over and over again.
*In the midst of the enemy trying to shut down the church, we ministered to more people in 2020 than ever before. The testimonies of those whose lives were changed, delivered and set free by The Truth of God’s Word DOUBLED this year. We were more fruitful for the kingdom in every way and we give God all the Glory!!
*The vision God gave us for On the Road to Freedom is to film on location utilizing all the new editing techniques and styles, so that we may reach beyond the walls of the church. This means that our show has higher production costs than shows filmed on a set. Kenneth Copeland Ministries has generously allowed us to borrow their cameras and equipment these past 3 years. But we have been believing God for supernatural increase beyond the production costs which would enable us to purchase our own equipment. We are thrilled to share with you that while we were ministering from home this year, the new cameras we were waiting on were finally released and God provided through Team Mylon the abundance to purchase $26,000 of our goal. We are $20,000 away from owning ALL of our own TV equipment. Glory to God!
*Through the generosity of our Team Mylon members, we were also able to finally renovate our 19 year old ministry office building and complete repairs that we had been advised to do for several years. Now our office and staff are ready for the future! One goal in 2021 is to update our computer system that we may better serve you.
*We have had the honor and privilege of airing on the Daystar network for the past 18 months but our contract expired at the end of 2020. We have steadily increased our viewing audience around the world each year and we are finally starting to break even. But in order to remain debt free, we were not yet able to commit to the hundreds of thousands of dollars required for 2021 air time.
Our commitment to you all along has been to spend as much time as possible teaching God’s Word NOT raising funds. Even though one is necessary to accomplish the other. In order for you to be a cheerful giver, giving has to be your idea; between you and The Father. Then when your giving is truly led by the Holy Spirit, we will have the power of agreement to believe God with you for SUPERNATURAL INCREASE. We continue to stand in faith that God will make a way for us to be back on Daystar in the near future.
For those of you who watched us on Daystar, please tune in to the VICTORY Channel on DirecTV 366 and on Dish 265. The VICTORY Channel can also be accessed through ROKU, AppleTV or Amazon Fire. Or watch On the Road to Freedom anytime On Demand at www.mylon.org or on our YouTube Channel. We are so grateful to Brother Copeland for the free airtime on the VICTORY Channel. We encourage you to support KCM in this endeavor with your prayers and finances.
Just like you, there were things the enemy tried to steal from us last year: health, finances, relationships, peace, joy and dreams. Because we are instructed in Isaiah 42:22 to SAY RESTORE, we are declaring over our lives and yours total RESTORATION in 2021 of ANY and EVERY thing the enemy tried to steal in 2020. Our father in the faith, Kenneth Copeland, prophesied that 2021 will be a year of:
~ Divine Healing ~ Divine Health ~ Divine Prosperity ~ Divine Recovery ~
Divine means: “Proceeding from God, heavenly; excellent in the highest degree; extraordinary; apparently above what is human.” Wow! This so encouraged us. We’ll take it, how about you?
As you sow your seed this month, we want to give you an opportunity to agree with us for the completion of our TV equipment and gear PAID FOR! Or maybe you would like to be a part of us returning to Daystar? Whatever the Lord instructs you to do, Thank you! Please declare with us over your seed: “I believe that 2021 will be a year of heavenly health, extraordinary prosperity and excellent recovery!”
We love you and wish you a happy, healthy and prosperous new year,
Mylon and Christi
P.S. Thank you again for your love and support to tell the world how much Jesus loves them. We have some exciting news that we will share with you next month about a NEW door God has opened for us to share His love with the world. It is MIRACULOUS!!
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!
Mylon & Christi

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

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!
