Ed Watters Intro

To overcome, you must educate. Educate not only yourself but educate anyone seeking to learn. We are all dead America; we can all learn something. To learn, we must challenge what we already understand. The way we do that is through conversation. Sometimes we have conversations with others. However, some of the best conversations happen with ourselves. Reach Out and challenge yourself. Let's dive in and learn something right now.

Ed Watters

And today, we are lucky to have Jacqueline Madison with us. To start off Jacqueline. Would you introduce yourself and tell people what you do?

Jacqueline Maddison

Yes. Hi! First of all, such an honor to be with you Ed. Thank you. I am the founder and editor in chief of Beverly Hills magazine. I'm an entrepreneur at heart, but I'm also a spiritual success coach, where I teach people the spiritual secrets to success that will allow them to step into their destiny, align with their life purpose and live their dream life just as I'm doing.

Ed Watters

We can tell you know how to live your dream life, and with your story, it's just amazing that you're where you are. So, let's get into that, you were born or came from South Africa, and you ended up in America. Could you tell people about that?

Jacqueline Maddison

Yes, absolutely. So originally, I’m from South Africa our parents, my parents, I have two, two brothers and a sister moved us here in ninety-three. We were seeking the American dream you know and there was political and instability in the country at the time, unfortunately. So, yeah, so we came here, and it was a struggle, obviously, it was a challenge growing up. I, definitely we had to endure some hardship, but I'm really glad to be here and I think it was God's plan for, for my life to be here and we'll get more into that. But, yeah, so here, I am living the American dream.

Ed Watters

Great. Now I see that you are a person with a deep personal relationship with God how has this helped you in your life in business, personal, and developing how you are and what you are today?

Jacqueline Maddison

Wow, Ed, absolutely my story of success isn't one of a girl who made all the right decisions, and I'm some hotshot self-made. No, it's quite the opposite. I actually attempted to start other magazines prior to Beverly Hills magazine both failed, and I could never breakthrough, I kept running into walls and I kept facing disappointments. And setbacks, I just could never achieve the level of success that I knew in my heart was possible.

And you know, when I was a little girl, my aunt had taken me to church and so I knew that, I knew about the special book and I knew about God but I, you know, as life

Sometimes has this way, I started dancing with the devil, played in the dark, but there's no greater love than the light of our God but I started living for the wrong things, chasing money materialistic mindset, just really forgetting about God. Okay, but it wasn't until I came to my point of failures where I again just was I felt like I was running into walls that I cried out to God, this God that I knew of, but I didn't know, that I believed in, but didn’t have a relationship with and.

What wasn't really experiencing what I would call, you know His divine assistance well, consciously I wasn't, I'm like, I am now because when I cried out to God it was in 2008 when the market crashed and I, my, started my, I was also, I'm also real estate broker so at the time I was doing real estate and, and I lost everything, I lost everything my Mercedes was being repossessed. I was at my parents' house I had zero dollars in the bank like total failure but then on top of it I was also.

Experiencing failure in relationships like, I was not thriving in personal relationships at all, and so in my personal and professional failure, I went to God, what we would call a repentance prayer. I asked Him for forgiveness for things I've done wrong, if I done anything wrong because sometimes, we're making the wrong decision in God's eyes and we don't even realize it. And so, it actually works against us spiritually. So, after that repentance prayer God heard that, cause His word says, He hears the cry of the broken heart. He hears the repentant prayer. I started experiencing supernatural occurrences and signs, wonders, miracles, and I started realizing God's presence and I would be like, God is that you? like, I was waking up to the fact that God is real and that.

I didn't have to walk alone. I didn't, I wasn't alone. In fact, I'd never been alone. I just didn't cry out to Him. I just hadn't gone to Him yet and my life has just become such an amazing spiritual journey where God has led me supernaturally through signs, wonders, miracles. I also started getting prophetic dreams. Yeah, as I proceeded on this journey and seeking God and praying to Him more often. And I still have prophetic dreams like God guides my life. And then I got born again and baptized and then that took my spiritual life to a whole other dimension where the presence of God became even more powerful in my life and.

And He started guiding my business and putting on my heart inspirations. Like I was living at, my parents' house totally broke starting Beverly Hills magazine was completely out of my realm of possibility, but here's where it says, if you delight yourself in the Lord, He’ll give you the desires of your heart. So, He knew I wanted to start a magazine, but I never in a million years dreamed I would own Beverly Hills magazine, you know, so.

I looked it up. The trademark was available, and I knew, wow this was a gift from God this was gonna be a tremendous.

Walk of faith. I was gonna need God every step of the way and, and I just prayed more. I asked for God's wisdom, for instruction. for guidance, I would ask Him for divine alignments for the right people to come around me, the right team, the right tools and then supernaturally God would start bringing things into my path. So, I'm talking about a supernatural life here. And that's how I've been able to build Beverly Hills magazine with no money. And now it's a, it's a thriving business that's making money. And I've got an amazing team because God has given me the wisdom, the revelation, the inspiration from within because like I'll be folding laundry like doing something totally mundane and then I'll have like an epiphany of that's what I need to do, or, that's what I need to say, or that's the email I need to send God gives us a clarity because His word also says, there's no, He's not the God of confusion, so, you know, He gives us.

a sound mind and a love and power and it's just been incredible the thing is this that God has given me this wisdom to build the business the right way, so there's a wrong way, and a right way really to do everything

And God will guide you in the right way and, and He reassures me all the time you're on the right path. I mean there's actually nothing more comforting than getting reassurance from the God in heaven that you're on the right path in life. You know what I mean? And, but with respect to the business, He, I mean, God, the CEO of the universe He manages everything, He set up every processing system


Ed Watters

Yes, yes.


Jacqueline Maddison

that we see that's in place, you know, night and day, the seasons, that all of it is by God’s, under His wisdom and understanding everything is in perfect working order and He will do the same for you when you go to Him and seek His guidance and instruction in anything you want to build in your life. So, He's helped me to set up the infrastructure of my business with systems and processes and utilizing free tools on the internet. Again, He has helped me do this with no money. Okay, cause with God, all things are possible, I live by that scripture.


Ed Watters

Yes.

Yes.


Jacqueline Maddison

But I've actually written a book called the seven oracles of success that I have learned which are the spiritual secrets to success that I've learned in my relationship with God that have allowed me to apply to my life to live my dream life that I actually, I say in the book, if anyone faithfully wants to seek God's will, because I say there is free will and there is God's will, Ed, God's will for your life, God will for your life is your dream life because He's going to guide you on the path that's gonna allow you to use your natural, your interest, the things you desire to do.


Ed Watters

Yes.


Jacqueline Maddison

With the gifts and talents, He's placed in your spirit. You know, someone might be an amazing musician or a Baker and you just make the most incredible cupcakes or cookies, whatever it is, God's gonna lead you on the path that lets you use those gifts, and, and the passions you have in your heart of hearts because you are created to do that, you know, and this cultures or the devil’s created a culture where we've got to chase the dollar but God's, where it says you can't, you can't.


Ed Watters

That's right.


Jacqueline Maddison

Serve money and God it's one or the other. And I think all of us have served money or money's been what we've been chasing for too long and, and it's failed us, we're not fulfilled, we're not prospered, we're not living the abundant life God has for us. we’re; I mean, God’s will is to prosper us and, and, and prosperity, doesn't just mean money in the bank. Prosperity is a progressive trajectory of growth and every facet of your life, emotionally, intellectually physically which means your health and well-being spiritually and, and materially, financially and I think people have forgot.


Ed Watters

Right.

That's right.

That's right. Jeremiah says that.

You know, in Jeremiah it says that God wants good things for you and so it's within God's will that's right, twenty-nine eleven, Amen. So that's a good verse. I have it on a coin in my wallet and I keep it with me. God wants good things for you.


Jacqueline Maddison

Yeah.

Yeah. Twenty-nine eleven amen. Amen.

I love it. So, it says, my

Yeah, He says my thoughts towards you are for good and not for evil, to give you a hope, an expected end. And what that means, the expected end, it means that He's actually gonna give you a vision for your life that you kind of work towards. That He will, He will manifest and bring it to pass.


Ed Watters

Amen.


Jacqueline Maddison

You know and God's word also says my people parish because for lack of vision. So, God will put a vision of your, on your heart. Like, He's given me the vision of my life, like, even for the next twenty years or more of what we will be creating together. So, I started the Beverly Hills magazine eight years ago. I've been working with God for eight years to build this thing and it's wonderful working with God to co- create your future. You see this is in the book too, I, I've set out to define success and, and what it is and what it isn’t and, and again everyone's been so caught up in money and materialism kind of somehow being the definer of success which money may be a part of your destiny like path, but it's not necessarily a requirement of, of the definition of success, okay, success is becoming who God created you to be.

You know, you, yourself are the seed of success that has to be developed and grown and transformed in order to thrive and blossom into who God created you to be utilizing your gifts and talents and reaching your full potential and, and, and it's in this place of your own personal transformation in your relationship with God where you succeed, where the work of your hands is prospered by God because you're working with Him and this is the place to personal fulfillment. And this is also the path we're God  aligns you with your purpose and your purpose will always be not only for your blessing but for the greater good of all because God is love and God considers all things in everything He does including your destiny.


Ed Watters

Yes.

Yes.


Jacqueline Maddison

Like for me, for example Hands fired me obviously took to, to write the books, I have three books, all of which a hundred percent of the proceeds go directly to my foundation, which is called the God foundation, and this is part of my purpose. And again, a hundred percent of donations given to the foundation go directly to orphanages and to outreach ministries where we are continuing to share the good news of, of God's kingdom, and eternal life through Jesus Christ, of course, but we are supporting orphanages in India, Uganda, Sierra Leone.

Pakistan, because this, that's God's heart, God's heart is one of charity. He says He loves a cheerful giver and it is more blessed to give than to receive. And actually, this is a financial spiritual law I should share that's at work in my life that God taught me very early on was when I first started building the online magazine for Beverly Hills magazine. He encouraged me to give so I would just give people featured articles or I would give away free advertising, I would just give, even though I, it wasn't making money yet. I just built something at least I have something but of what I had; I have to give because true charity is giving out of your own lack.


Ed Watters

Yes.

Yes.


Jacqueline Maddison

And so as I continue to, to sow in my deeds of charity, God would continue to bless that and and then he inspired me to start the God foundation where we would be supporting the underprivileged and then I would give, donate of, $5, $10, anything I could but the law of tithing is at work in my life where God says in Malachi. Three, ten and eleven bring the full tithing to my, my storehouses test me in this and see if I will not open the Windows of heaven and pour out a blessing upon you So great you won't have room enough to receive it. So what for me as I continue to build the God foundation and give money away out of the money that I do make a however little or however much it is at least in, in my heart of hearts, I’m, I’m being a cheerful generous, giver the more money I make the, more


Ed Watters

Yeah.

Yup.


Jacqueline Maddison

My client base grows it's actually it's incredible to watch God's divine law activated in my life.


Ed Watters

 that was very hard for me to get at first that law of giving but boy when I started giving the flood that comes with, that is remarkable. And I'm glad that you brought that up Jacqueline.


Jacqueline Maddison

Mm-hmm.

Yes, yeah.


Ed Watters

 It goes with everything has a season, and I read a few of your quotes and you've got a quote, because even the rose had to wait to become a rose, I love that so much, it explains so much, life, Sometimes you have to wait to really understand what your true destiny is, talk about destiny, and why it's so important to seek destiny.


Jacqueline Maddison

Oh, wow. Yes Ed, absolutely. So, I actually do have a webinar where I go more in depth on the seven oracles Of success, on the spiritual principles, and then more so, I have a four week coaching program that the dream life coaching program, where I really delve into the spiritual concepts and principles that you can come into a full understanding of, Then, you can, can walk in the fullness of the manifestation. One of them being destiny, the thing is this, there's free will and there's God’s will, okay, we all have, God has  given us life, and then the next greatest gift is free will, we can choose to do whatever we want, we can go our own way, you know, whatever.

But.

When you go to God and you seek His will for your life. That is the preordained destiny that He wrote for you, His plan, it's a, it's a specific and unique life path that He ordained for your life that He will guide you on that. He's already gone ahead to prepare the way, the doors of opportunity, the right relationships, the right, to to bring you to the right places at the right time, not only for your blessing but for His glory, because you know Psalms twenty three says, He'll lead you on paths of righteousness for His name’s sake, because in your path of destiny you're gonna touch souls.

That you are destined to encounter for God's purposes to be manifest in and through you and for their life as well, you see. So we are interconnected but if we're just kinda meandering in life and our own free will we can veer so far from the path of destiny and purpose that we can fail to, to fulfill it and then people wonder why they end up with disease, or in divorce or in addiction, which I call all these things demonic influence like even some people can achieve some degree of financial success but then there's still the demonic influence, disease, divorce, destruction, addiction that because it comes with a price when you follow the devil but with God, He protects you from evil, He promises long life to you.


Ed Watters

Yes.


Jacqueline Maddison

You know, yeah. And I said the rewards or the retirement benefits of working for God and doing things His way are unbeatable. You live forever, it doesn't get better than that! Plus, the health benefits. God says, I heal you of all your diseases, like I don't get sick, I don't even tolerate a sniffle. God has taught me the spiritual authority I have in the name of Jesus that we all have. Because of what He did, because He died to, to give us, to set us free from the sin and evil, to give us power and authority over the devil. So, we need to come.


Ed Watters

That's right and trusting in that power.


Jacqueline Maddison

Amen. As our, I, and, and our true identity as sons and daughters of God. When we get a full revelation of God's goodness and, and the dominion He's really given us over the earth, because God has said I've given you power over all the power of the enemy, the enemy is ashes under our feet. So, we can begin to tap into the abundant life that God has for us. The destiny, and purposeful lives that we are created to live on earth with God heaven on earth you know that's the point it's accessible to us now. More than ever.


Ed Watters

Yes.

That's.

Yeah. So, what advice would you give to young entrepreneurs? Wanting to do something like you have done?


Jacqueline Maddison

Well.

Definitely, you have to pursue your dreams because those are put on your heart for a reason. Even if you're in a situation where they are completely inaccessible and unrealistic. Seemingly, you, you've got to take a leap of faith and you've got to trust God His word says, you know, lean on your trust in the Lord with all your heart, lean not on your own understanding, acknowledge Him in all your ways and He'll direct your paths.

So, you've got to genuinely walk by faith there were times in my journey and even still where everything around me is telling me the opposite of what God is telling me. Like I may have people coming against me, like, oh, you know this is gonna fail or whatever cause the devil's working through other people To try and block you or stop you from ever stepping into your destiny path. So, you got to prepare for the actually one of the chapters in the seven oracles of success is fight for your future, you've got to put on a spiritual warrior mindset if you're gonna reach for your destiny and want to see the full manifestation of your dream life of your heart’s desires, your greatest dreams and wishes fulfilled, because


Ed Watters

Yes, Ephesians six.


Jacqueline Maddison

It's a spiritual battle for that, you know, I'm not, I'm not talking about just making money. Yeah exactly, we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against powers, authorities, and rulers of darkness and spiritual wickedness in high places. The spiritual realm is real, God is real. The devil is real. The devil will  prosper people who have absolutely no heart for God and he'll bring them great wealth because he’ll, he can take them to high levels of publicity, or fame, or whatever, because he knows he'll, he can use them as a, as a vessel to corrupt others.




Jacqueline Maddison

But when God prospers you, He's gonna do it for His glory and He'll, and for the purpose of continuing the sharing of the gospel but He'll also, He'll also give you great. Wealth but it'll be on in, in, in purity and in power.

Not just for the satisfaction of your, the lusts of your flesh. And with it comes obviously the security of eternal life. So, there's two very different paths you can walk, you know, to achieve success in this world and to prosper, it's the path of darkness with the devil, which is filled with lusts, sex, drugs, money, rock and roll all of that a love of money rather, or there's the path of light with God, which, which is the path of righteousness, purity, charity, humility, and prosperity which includes financial stability.

So, we all have a choice to make, you know, again back to the free will thing. So, it's really just up to you. But so I am obviously coming from a place of lights and, and wanting to encourage others to choose to walk with the Lord and to fulfill their destiny and, and their life purpose and to manifest their dream life with Him, because it's absolutely wonderful. The one thing I do want to say with respect to

me specifically and, and others. See, I live very dedicated prayer life, devoted prayer life. I am in prayer between, like, sometimes God wakes me up like 2:00 thirty, but usually between like 3:00 AM and like 5:30 – 6:00 o’ clock, between those hours. I'm in prayer for at least thirty minutes to an hour, sometimes more if I'm lucky, or between 9:00 thirty and 11:00 thirty. I'm in prayer because, you must understand prayer is your power, it's your Plumb line to heaven, it's your meeting with the CEO of the universe where we're going into a quiet secret place, you’re shutting your bedroom door and you're seeking God, you're seeking His wisdom, His presence, His power.

Because we're the presence of God is darkness cannot be, evil cannot dwell with Him. So, the devil has to flee, So, this then opens up a portal of having over your life that protects you as you go into your day and it will give, it'll allow God and angels to minister to you as you're walking in the, throughout your day, it gives you the revelation, the wisdom, the instruction you need to, to make the right decisions, to do the right thing, to be in the right place, so, the devil can’t easily pull you off your path of destiny.


Ed Watters

That's right.


Jacqueline Maddison

You got to be on guard. The devil we'll send false blessings, the wrong people into your path, his whole agenda, like God’s word says, that these agendas, to steal, kill, and destroy, he wants to steal your destiny, kill your faith, destroy your purpose. He ultimately, the devil, wants to, he wants you to go to hell with him. I mean he's doomed; he was kicked out of heaven, he’s doomed. So his plot against you is to keep you from ever coming into the full authority and dominion that and revelation knowledge of who you are as a son and daughter of God because then he's under your feet then all things become possible for you, and, and you can walk in the power of God, because I say, man operates in the limited capabilities of the flesh. But the man of faith operates in the supernatural power of God and, and that's


Ed Watters

Amen.

That's right.

Yeah, you can tell you’re a powerful woman in the faith, and where you are, in the midst of the devil's palace down there, it can be done, people, you can walk in true faith, you can have these things, and still follow a guidance from God. I just admire you, and I thank you for doing that. So, what do you want to be remembered for, your legacy after all’s said and done?


Jacqueline Maddison

Just the fact. Yeah, it's awesome.

I love that question. But honestly, don’t admire me, I'm nothing, I am incapable of achieving anything worthy, it's only through my relationship with God and through His empowerment within me that enables me to do anything worthy of His, of His praise or His blessing. I would hope that my life after all is said and done would serve as a, a beacon of hope, a lighthouse of truth, a light of love in the world, that could.


Ed Watters

Amen.


Jacqueline Maddison

Shine, so others can can, you know, walk out of the darkness themselves and, and come to the light of the love of God.

And obviously secure their own eternal lives and, and to fulfill their own destinies, you know, that's the point of life, that's the purpose of life, to be reconciled back to our creator. Yeah, life without relationship with your creator is death and Jesus Christ is the creator. He was the word, in the beginning was the word, and the word was with God, and the word was God, before Jesus before God incarnated, the Immaculate conception, when holy spirit became a man.


Ed Watters

Yes.


Jacqueline Maddison

The word was the all-knowing, all creating powerful sphere of light, but He agreed. The word agreed to become a man for, for, to satisfy at God's own law, you know, to pay the penalty for our sin, because we rebelled against Him, and, but that penalty has been paid. Jesus Christ paid the price. So, now we just through faith can be justified, and by us following the Lord, we've got to follow Him, and we got to pick up our cross every day and follow the Lord, He’ll lead us and guide us.

The other thing is this, I fast, I live a fasted lifestyle. I eat one meal, a day I eat only fruits and vegetables. I don't drink anything. I just take communion every morning which is a little bit of water and a little cracker which is the body and, and blood of Jesus Christ. And you know God says whoever eats of my my body and whoever drinks my blood, shall never die, has life in them, eternal life in them. So, we can, we are supernatural, spiritual beings having a temporary, earthly experience but, but when we received the bread from heaven and we

Bring our flesh into submission to the spirit through fasting, cause I, only again, between 6:00 and 8:00 AM every twenty four hours, you'll find your spiritual life becomes heightened because God is spirit, He lives in the spirit, so we must walk in the spirit. We have to crucify our flesh, we have to bring it into submission you know, it was a process, in doing that, because we,

We're so used to the flesh and satisfying our cravings, and our, the lusts of our flesh, but but that's where God’s word says, the lusts of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, the pride of life is not of God. So, if we really want to be reconciled back to God, you must be determined to bring your flesh into submission through fasting and through a dedicated prayer life. Because we get our spiritual empowerment through prayer and we crucify the flesh through fasting and this is how I'm able to hear God, this is how I'm able to get clear revelation and, and downloads from heaven, because after my, my prayer that my, my prayer time, it's not every day, but, but I do frequently get like a morse code.

Like a download into my ear, like my spirit will go completely quiet and then I'll get like, it's a download from heaven, and I know I'm getting some sort of impartation. I don't, I, it could be the solution that could be the spiritual strength that, the whatever I need spiritually I'm getting, and it's a download from heaven, and this is how we walk in supernatural spiritual power, because God's word also says, the anointing breaks the yolk. So, it's the anointing from heaven that allows us to walk in authority over the devil, where we can achieve.


Ed Watters

Amen, What can we expect next from Jacqueline?


Jacqueline Maddison

And succeed in everything we put our hand to because God is with us and His power is working through us.

Okay. So, the vision for my future which God has put on my heart, as His destiny for me, I've also written a scripted series, because God will activate your spiritual gifts to a whole other level when you continue to seek Him. And so, one of mine is obviously writing and directing. So, I'm an editor but, but as a director, I, you know, I visually create and I visually story tell. So, I've written a scripted series based on my life as editor in chief. I've already prewritten the thirteen episodes, season one of my life, the TV show I'm going to be producing.

And then I have some feature films, some trilogies that I will be producing in the future, some new superhero concepts. And another sci-fi- Action adventure. So, these things are definitely down the road for me. And and I'm very excited for this from a creative perspective because we're made in God's image and we're born to create, you know, God, create,

Created everything from nothing. So, by His word, that's the other thing, our words are very powerful, So, we must be very careful and diligent to keep a guard on our lips, you're either speaking life or death, so speak life, speak creative words, speak affirming words of what you want to see made manifest into your life. And I always do that. And it’s a very powerful discipline to train yourself in.

But I did want to address your point about the rose. Even the rose had to wait to become a rose, because you know, the process of becoming who God created you to be is not overnight, you know it's a life journey, it's actually, it's an eternal journey, because even when we get to heaven, God’s gonna continue to grow us, some are gonna change and, and, and, and ascend in levels within lights. And then to understanding, because God’s unsearchable, so we'll, there's some, there in eternity will be learning new things about life in the spirit and life with God, but patience is a very important virtue and

And I encourage all of us to learn to be more patient in waiting for God's will and for His instruction, because when we try to rush ahead or do things in our own self will, we can really harm ourselves and God doesn't want that for us. So, learn to

wait upon the Lord, because those who wait upon the Lord renew their strength. Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord. So, take time to slow down. And I say silence is golden obviously because angel’s whisper in, in our silence. So, spend more time in God's word and prayer, just resting in the spirit of God, and you'll get the revelations and the epiphanies that you need. Because it was in this place when I had nothing. I was totally broke. All I had was time.

Uh-huh, I sought God, I was praying, I was

Watching sermons, I was reading the Bible. I was just trying to get to know the truth about God and it was in this place where He visited me and He manifested Himself to me and He gave me all the business ideas and opportunities that I'm now living out and that are now manifesting for me. So, it's in the secret place and that's why God’s word, also says, you know, the secret of the Lord is with those who fear Him. We fear Him because obviously He’s God, He holds our life breath in His hands. So the fear of the Lord is the beginning of wisdom and knowledge of the Holy is understanding that, but yeah, it's in the, this is the real secret, is that you can manifest and live your dream life in your relationship with Jesus Christ, the God of heaven and earth. The new age secret out there that's the doctrine of demons. Just completely false and it will lead you down a path of disappointment. It's a complete lie, absolutely.


Ed Watters

Amen.


Jacqueline Maddison

Jesus Christ is the God of heaven and earth and your relationship with Him will allow you to live your dream life. And God will give you the desires of your heart if you delight yourself in Him first. He says, seek my kingdom and my righteousness and all things will be added to you. And God is not a man, He doesn't lie, He is faithful, and He is true and


Ed Watters

That's right, there's power in the faith, and, and when we walk, yes, when we walk in that faith and stop relying on our own understanding, it gets way better. It's not about the money and how much you have, it's what you do with what you have, and there's parables about that. How can people hook up with you, find you and what would be a call to action for people?


Jacqueline Maddison

I'm just a girl who's activated my faith, I believe God, and that's why His word manifest for me and it will do the same for you. So, go for it.

Power in the faith, Amen.

So, a couple of points that I just wanna make before I give you the closing statements.

God’s word says, faith is the evidence of things not seen, and the substance of things hoped for. Faith is an actual spiritual, tangible substance that it's the, it's the spiritual building blocks of our future. It's impossible to please God without faith. But, when you activate your faith, and you start taking action in faith, like you have no money but you move forward and you start building something knowing God's going to meet you halfway because God’s spirit Marries your faith, and then His power and glory can manifest and move in that place of faith. And then I have a personal quote that says, you know, money doesn't define you no matter how much of it you have, it’s what you do without it that does. So, forget about money. You don't need it, you need faith. God will bring the right resources, He’ll line up the right opportunities, people, places, and things, seek Him first.

Wow, so that's really my call to action is is activate your faith, trust in the Lord with all your heart and pursue your impossible dreams, go for it, because with God all things are possible.

And all things are possible for those who believe, so, I just, I love you, I love you all. I'm praying for you all and I just encourage you to really to go for it, go for it, because God will never let you down, man will disappoint you. But God says it’s better to trust in the Lord then to put confidence in man.


Ed Watters

Mm-hmm.


Jacqueline Maddison

The other thing is, God’s word, you know people say, oh, follow your heart, absolutely do not follow your heart, God's word says, the heart is deceitful above all else, who can know it? God's word says that it's not in man, it's not within himself to direct his own life. You guys, there are forces of good and evil that manipulate and influence our minds and our decisions. You've got to understand the reality of the spiritual realm around it.

But we can be led by the spirit of God in the right paths. Because God’s word says, the sons and daughters of God are led by the spirit of God, and God will lead you on the right path. And that's what you want. So, go to Him, walk the right path, fulfill your destiny, and live your dream life because I'm doing it.
