Acts 1:6-8 “When they therefore were come together, they asked of him, saying, Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel? And he said unto them, It is not for you to know the times or the seasons, which the Father hath put in his own power. But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth.”
Stay focused on the work. The enemy will use our curiosity and analytical minds to have us trying to figure out the exact day and the exact hour of our restoration and the restoration of God’s chosen people, the Hebrew Israelites. When Jehovah? When will the vision manifest? When will my spouse come? When will You return? We don’t know the day or the hour. We don’t worry about the exact dates. We know what the power of the Holy Spirit reveals to us. Meanwhile, we have work to do. In every area of our lives we are charged to be witnesses. Jehovah has already empowered us with the anointing we need. He has already given us dunamis power to teach, preach, cast out demons, and heal the sick. He has already equipped us to accomplish His plan in our lives. We don’t have time to sit by and look out the window for signs of the times. Keep working. Keep building. Keep planning, “God willing.” Keep ministering. Keep witnessing. Don’t worry about the day. Don’t worry about the hour. Don’t let the enemy cause you to get stuck in a spiritual time capsule. Work while you can.
Daughter of Zion, O beautiful precious daughter, get up. His bed is not your altar. Stop allowing the bed of a broken man to be your place of worship. We can’t continue to give ourselves to a man who is not our husband and who is too broken to even consider marrying us. Every time we engage in sexual activity with a man who is not our husband, we offer up worship to the kingdom of darkness. Sex is a form of worship. If sex isn’t with your God ordained spouse, the worship is to Satan and the kingdom of darkness. Every time we engage in sexual immorality with a man who is not our husbands, we are bowing down at the altar of Satan. Why is it, do we think, that there is so much sexual immorality in this world as if Jehovah Himself didn’t declare that it is sin? Why is it pervasive in and throughout every cultural mountain? Why is it wreaking so much havoc including disease and destruction? Why? Satan is using our bodies as his playground and we are allowing it. Almost every form of idolatry in the Old Testament involved pagan sexual worship to Satan’s idols. The Israelites would participate in sexual immorality in order to gain from idols the favor, fertility, prosperity, and whatever else they lusted for. Those idolatrous spirits are still in existence in the heavenly realm. How long will we allow our bodies to be the temples for those spirits? When we have sex with a man who is not our husband, we give Satan access, an entry way into our lives. Stop now.
How do I stop? How can I possibly refrain from sex? How can I refuse him when I love him? How can I stop worshiping in his bed and worship Jehovah my creator instead? Through developing your relationship with Yeshua. The closer you get to the Vine, the more you begin to resemble Him. The closer you get to the Vine, the more you begin to hear Holy Spirit when He says, “Don’t answer the phone.” “Don’t go.” “Don’t kiss him.” “Don’t put yourself in a tempting situation.” “Don’t check his page.” The closer you get to the Vine, the more you want to fall on your face at His altar instead of the bed of his altar. You begin to desire to consecrate yourself. You begin to be delivered and healed from your own afflictions. You begin to be made whole. And when you get to that sweet spot, you will know that God has a whole and healed man for you who will not ask you to worship him. He will instead ask you to marry him and Yeshua, the Vine will give you whatever you ask according to His will. Meanwhile, precious queen, get up. His bed is not your altar. Do not let the bed of a broken man become your place of worship. You’re worthy of so much more. You’re worth far more than rubies. Know your worth.
John 15:5-7 5 I am the Vine; you are the branches. Whoever lives in Me and I in him bears much (abundant) fruit. However, apart from Me [cut off from vital union with Me] you can do nothing. 6 If a person does not dwell in Me, he is thrown out like a [broken-off] branch, and withers; such branches are gathered up and thrown into the fire, and they are burned. 7 If you live in Me [abide vitally united to Me] and My words remain in you and continue to live in your hearts, ask whatever you will, and it shall be done for you.
“Your husband’s sex drive is God’s gift to you.” Wives, sex is such a powerful tool and an even more powerful weapon. Jehovah never intended for us to use sex as a kingdom or spiritual weapon. The devil came in and corrupted its meaning and its use. Think about how the enemy uses sex in our marriages or how he uses us to use sex against our husbands. I know it must be extremely difficult to surrender your body and emotions to a man who has been insensitive, who refuses to take out the trash or help with the children, or who isn’t affectionate. But instead of rebelling; instead of withholding; and instead of withdrawing, you must learn how to engage in spiritual warfare. What are the confessions that you speak over him daily so that Jehovah can transform his life? How do you refuel and surrender to Jehovah so that He can fix what’s wrong in YOU? When do you go to the altar to pray for Jehovah to help you surrender to your husband sexually? When was the last time you fasted for your husband and marriage and sex life?
The devil will use us wives to withhold sex because he knows what a powerful tool it is in kingdom marriages. He will also use spirits of lust, adultery, masturbation, pornography and all other forms of sexual immorality to infiltrate our marriages with irreparable damage – if we let him. In kingdom, God ordained marriages and in God ordained sexual activities with your spouse, the sexual connection not only binds you to your husband and secures your oneness with him; not only does it feel amazing, but it is also a form of worship to Jehovah.
Think about all this power you have within you wives as you’ve been studying the Word of God with me; you’ve been praying; you’re about to do a 30-day fast. And do you think that when you connect with your husband sexually (which is also a connection spiritually) that your spirits aren’t impacting him? No. Sex won’t be the panacea for all your marital ills but the lack of sex is extremely frustrating to your husband and detrimental to your marriage. His sex drive has been tormenting you because other things aren’t going the way you want them to. Pray about this. Add this issue to your fasting prayer list. Your husband’s sex drive is a gift to you from Jehovah because in whole and healed marriages, sex can be the most powerful way to connect. When you have sex, use that as an opportunity to literally say aloud some of the confessions that Jehovah has given us. “Talking dirty” invites demons in your bedroom. And you wonder why you’re arguing or can’t communicate or can’t agree. What are you saying to each other and is it godly? Speaking powerful confessions over him while you are connected in the ultimate way invites the power of Holy Spirit to transform him and your marriage. His sex drive? Honey so many women are praying for what you have. You just have to pray and ask God how to manage the blessing with which you’ve been given.
Do you know who you are? Do you know whose you are? Do you know how valuable you are? Do you know how strong you are? Do you know how influential you are? Do you know the power on the inside of you? Do you know what you bring to the table? You are worth far more than rubies.
I researched the value of rubies using the International Gem Society (IGS) to get an idea of the value of rubies today. Rubies are some of the most popular gems for good reasons. “As gem-quality examples of the mineral corundum, [rubies] are exceptionally durable and one of the few gem species whose color reaches vivid saturation levels. Fine quality rubies are some of the most expensive gems, with record prices over $100,000 per carat…As of May 2015, the record price for a ruby is approximately 2 million per carat,” according to IGS. A ruby is a valuable gem!
The revelation I got about the scripture, Proverbs 31:10 is that the queen, King Lemuel’s mother, from whose perspective this scripture was written understood the value of rubies. More importantly, the queen understood the value of a virtuous and noble woman for her son the king (prince). The queen asks who can find a virtuous woman for she is worth far more than rubies. There is no question about whether or not a woman worth far more than rubies can be found. You, virtuous woman, are worth far more than rubies waiting to be seen for who you are and to be found, valued, cherished, and appreciated. Do you know your own worth?

A Nazarite was one who was dedicated to God from birth. As a result, he was not to drink any wine or any other fermented drink along with other requirements. The reason a Nazarite couldn’t drink alcohol was he took a vow of purity. Proverbs 31 is a famously known for the subject, “the virtuous woman.” We typically skip over the introduction of this prophecy which is a mother’s instructions to her son, King Lemuel. The Hebrew meaning of King Lemuel’s name means, “for God.” His mother the queen wanted her son King Lemuel’s life and his reign and his marriage to the virtuous woman to be in alignment with God’s will for his life. One thing she emphasized in her instructions to her son was for him to stay away from wine and liquor. She wanted her son to have the stamina of a true king. Wine and liquor can open a man up to other kinds of spirits that may cause him to fall into sin. When Noah got drunk, he exposed himself and his sons saw him naked. If we’re honest, drunkenness has caused some of us to be in some precarious situations too. King Lemuel’s mother says in Proverbs 31 that drunkenness can cause a king to forget the very laws he imposed. Drunkenness can cause a king to pervert the justice of all the afflicted. How can one reign and rule when he isn’t in his right mind?
The short-term effects of alcohol use are “slurring of speech, drowsiness, emotional changes, sleep disruption, and the lowering of body temperature. The long-term effects of alcohol use are nausea and vomiting, loss of bladder and bowel control, black outs after which a drinker does not remember what happened while he or she was drinking, temporary loss of consciousness, and ultimately a coma and death.” As if the physical effects are not enough, the portals of a man with a spirit of addiction are open to so many types of demonic oppression that can only be closed through the deliverance and healing of Yeshua. A king must be free of addiction and oppression to rule and reign effectively.
A king is one who has lordship and sovereignty in a specific sphere of influence. Every man of Jehovah who believes in Yeshua and who is ruled by Holy Spirit is a king on the earth right now. It is time to establish your kingdom. It is time to rule in your domain. But a king must be alert and of sober mind lest he is caught off guard by the enemy, the devil. A king has to be sober to open his mouth for the speechless. A king must be sober to judge righteously and make fair decisions. A king must be sober to plead the cause of the poor and needy. A king must be sober to lead his children who are joint heirs in his kingdom. A king must be sober to lead and love his wife. A king must be sober to lead the family into kingdom dominion and wealth. A king must be sober to hear what the instructions from Holy Spirit. A king must be sober to give wise counsel. A king must stay sober to make royal decrees.
Men of God, Jehovah is calling you back to your throne. Adjust your crowns and rule. Adjust your crowns and reign. Hold your head up high so your crown won’t topple. The king in you is crying to come out. That’s why you’ve been tormented in your spirit. That’s why you’ve been depressed. That’s why you’ve been in a state of confusion. Your robe is tattered and battered and torn and so are you. Your jewels are barely in their rightful position but neither are you. But God says for you to come as you are any way. You can’t stay in a position beneath your assignment any longer. Holy Spirit is speaking to the king in you. God is about to make you a brand new king with a brand new robe. God is ready to give you a feast fit for a king in the presence of your oppressors. Won’t you walk in your anointing, Proverbs 31 king? Won’t you answer your call today? Jené Walker
Reasoning is the root cause of a person’s actions. When a man reasons as a child, he may reason that the highest degrees from the best institutions and the best positions in the largest corporations and the fanciest cars and the largest church are the standards of success. God, however, will shame the wise and promote and elevate a man without any of those things. A man who reasons as a child may view justice from a child’s perspective, which is the world’s perspective. The Word of God says that vengeance is the Lord’s. But a man who reasons as a child my want to take vengeance in his own hands and get revenge on another who has hurt him. A man who reasons as a child may feel justified in sleeping with a woman and not marrying her because of the previous hurt and loss he experienced when he was married before. His mind tells him to protect himself from hurt even at the risk of devastating her life. A man who reasons as a child may be justified in having multiple women because he feels like he gets something different from each woman – each woman brings something different to the table that he needs. A man who reasons as a child may be justified in buying cars and boats that the family can’t afford in order to fill a void from which he wasn’t healed in his childhood. If a man reasons as a child, his decision making will be impeded by his spiritual immaturity. Thank God for His word that says, come now, let us reason together. So no matter what our past sins are, our past words, thoughts, and reasoning, God can make us whiter than snow right now. He can make us brand new right now. Men of God, if you are willing to put away childish things, Holy Spirit will begin a work in you right now that he will complete and perfect. Come now. He’s waiting on you. We just have to decide to get past elementary teachings and spiritual milk. We shouldn’t have to still preach about adultery, fornication, drunkenness, and lying. It is time for us to focus on more advanced teachings – kingdom dominion, laying on of hands, prophecy and spiritual wisdom. Come now. Jehovah is tired of our sacrifices and not our obedience. Come now. Jehovah is weary of our flesh wars and pretensions. Single wives, begin to intercede for our husbands now to become spiritually mature and put away childish things. Jené Walker

Stop talking about the kids in the family and start interceding for them every morning in prayer at 6:00am. Stop talking about the infirmities and sicknesses your great grandmother, grandmother, and mother had and start walking in righteousness so you can have to power to destroy the spirit of infirmity in each generation. Take a look at adultery in the family. Why is adultery a sin that everyone in the family line commits? Stop the generational sin. Cut it off at the root. Where is the family prayer line? We get on everyone else’s prayer line. Who is going to start one for the family – not only when something bad happens, but the family will pray on a regular basis together. Is everybody broke and struggling in the family? Break the spirit of poverty through prayer and spiritual warfare and financial training and information. We do not have to accept the curses in our families. Why do you think the devil wreaks so much havoc in families? To keep us separated and at odds with each other that’s why! Even if you aren’t released to connect with a specific family member every day, aren’t you released to pray for them every day until yokes are destroyed? How about this? How many preachers are in your family? Do they even speak to each other? Pray together? Strategize for warfare together? It’s time kingdom families. Who has been hurt by incest, molestation, or rape in the family? It’s time for those loved ones to get loosed from that mess! The devil can’t keep them oppressed! Which sexually transmitted diseases run rampant, passed down in the family that no one wants to talk about to get free? Come on somebody. We are taking back the blessings and breaking the curses from our ancestors. Say it everyday. You know what they are.
Do a spiritual assessment of your family. You be the one to get the plan started. We get together once a year for fun and foolery but don’t we want more? How can we be ok with some of the family thriving and the rest barely surviving? Your whole family is royalty. Speak it over them daily. Stop fighting over grandma’s dishes and start saving for land and territory for the family to build an estate for the family in grandma’s name!
