Zephaniah 3:17 reminds us that God is musical and He rejoices and sings over you. - -
The LORD your God in the midst of you is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over you with joy; he will quiet you with his love, he will rejoice over you with singing.

The Knighting Ceremony
Adventures at the Prophetic
The last day of
the conference, in our 8:00 am meeting we were given a blank peel and stick
name tag.The women were to write a
spiritual name for a women and men for men.I wrote "LOVER" - - and then considered that could be misunderstood, so I
added “of Souls.”I considered changing
it to Blessed - - but thought that might seem too pompous so placed the sticky,
“Lover of Souls” on my blouse.We were
to wear this until the conference was over that afternoon.
Our 8:00 am leader asked us
to pair up and ask the Lord to reveal the person’s mother’s first name.One of the Chinese girls came to me, and I
thought; “Oh this will be difficult.”I
asked her if her mother’s name was foreign, and she said yes.I mumbled some syllables beginning with “M”
and it was very close to her mother’s name.Then she looked at my name tag we all wore around our necks and asked if
my mother’s name was Hazel (same as mine?)I said, her middle name is Hazel, but her first name is a Bible
name.The girl paused, and then said,
“Ruth.”Yes, I told her, “That is
Our leader asked us now I
want you to practice what the Lord is showing you about our friends here as you
move around the room.
Over in the corner was a
young girl and she beckoned to me.I
went to her and took her in my arms.Suddenly the Holy Spirit came on me like fire and I told her, “I see you
dancing on a keyboard, and the keys are black and white, but in God there is no
black and white, only beautiful colors.”A few minutes later she left the room for a while and soon
returned.I think she went to weep in
We attended our next session,
and the break out class and the final afternoon meeting was to be the knighting
ceremony.Those who had to catch an
airplane flight were first.
Our instructions were to come
single file beginning with the back rows - - and kneel in the front on a line
marked on the carpet.My thoughts were,
“Oh no, I can’t kneel - - because I won’t be able to get up,” but the Lord
said, “Not to worry, just do your best.”
Further instructions were
after the knighting, to leave by the side door where staff and prophets would
be laying hands on us as they prayed in the Spirit. Then to go around and re-enter
from the back of the sanctuary to collect our stuff and we were free to
So it was my turn and - - I
managed to get down on the floor.Kris
and Dano each had a large sword and would place the two swords on each shoulder
of the person as one of them would pronounce, I knight you “Lover of Souls,” or
what ever the name that you had placed on your shirt.
That went well, and a couple
of nice people grasped under my arms and helped me stand.Out we went to the side door and as I stepped
through a young man placed his hands on my shoulder and was praying in
tongues.Immediately the air was thick
with the presence of the Holy Spirit and I was having a problem walking through
the cloud, as we went through an assembly line being prayed for by many we
recognized during our time here.
What a way to end the
conference.I was high on the mountain
for the next several days.
