    Way to go Margie and Arthur You Victories are for some many of us a reason to Celebrate. For me the fact that Margie went from Powerless to Powerful is immense. Thank You for sharing this article I’m forever grateful to God the Father and Arthur Burke, Blessings

    Thank you Father for the revelation of your glory in Margie's healing! You are the God of 'holding your ground,' the God of breakthrough, the God of joy, of healing, of relief. You are holy.

  • Joy Comes In The Morning
    By : Rebekah Scott On October 31st 2018

    The season of night can drag on ohhhh so long....... BUT Joy comes in the morning!!
    I'm wildly celebrating Margie coming into the joy of morning. It's a new day! A new season marked by power in place of powerlessness!

  • Celebrating with you!

    Celebrating with you Margie! I celebrate you enjoying your joy and your getting stronger and stronger in the process to full freedom for you and then for others as well. " ... whose weakness was turned to strength; and who became powerful in battle and routed foreign armies...." Celebrating big time!

    I am new to Sapphire and new to the blog but this caught my attention. It sounds like Margie and I had similar upbringing. I've had these fights and somehow I am where I am as well. I'm so grateful to meet people who have understanding! I've had so many surprise and unheard of situations like this. My latest battle was a powerful hit of illness and a 2 day battle of high fever/sickness symptoms with me taking authority against whatever I could think of and reading my battle prayers through the fever pain/haze and praying in tongues. God did it! Even with me not really know what we did, He broke that thing and after a few days of just saying "nope! This is done. You have no right." regardless of the "nothing" (or maybe less than "nothing") I was feeling I woke up with a strength I've never felt before! I know something broke and more than one demon (whatever rank but I'm thinking up there) left. I've had breakthrough since with connecting with the Lord and seeing visions and hearing Him and so much. SO, I said all that to say I'm so happy for and celebrating WITH you Margie and praying for you tonight!!!! God bless and keep fighting! AND BE HAPPY! Oh my Lord! What an amazing, wonderful, beautiful gift to get back!!! I am getting it back too and it's so awesome!! PS GOD BLESS YOU for your ministry!!! When I first heard you speak on the Redemptive gifts I sobbed. I've never heard such a kind, gentle (but def authoritative) spirit from a deliverance minister! So grateful Crystal Wade sent me to you!

    Endurance Perseverance Steadfastness. What a boost to those who are still pressing through to their victories. Thank you for sharing. Our God is faithful!

  • Big milestone!
    By : Megan Caldecourt On October 30th 2018

    I am gladly joining the global celebration of the first fruits - especially because it is exactly that - a first fruits! That means there is more and more to come. I also celebrate the tenacity displayed by Margie and yourself. You both stayed in the game long enough to see this day. May the fruit grow quickly and robustly, and may Margie see all the treasures God has given her in this painful part of her journey.

  • Sanctifying Time
    By : Arthur On October 30th 2018

    It has been several days since Margie's first victory. Every day there has been another flavor of God's grace in a different area. Some are in battles that she has been fighting for years and is pleased to gain a bit of ground. One was in an area she had never given any consideration. A couple of days ago she woke up happy. She was quite startled. She could not remember having had that emotion before in her life, ESPECIALLY first thing in the morning which historically has been one of her worst times. But God . . .
    Based on the small victories of the last few days, she decided to actually go on the offense on one point and pick a fight with an enemy. She dusted off her notes from the "Got Predators?" video and lit into a particular set of demons.
    The first time she did, the words had a familiar hollow ring followed by mocking from the critters. The second time she engaged them, there was fire in her words and no lip from the critters. BUT, tonight she is going to have a face a huge challenge and is feeling a bit wobbly, not sure her soul and spirit can hold the ground she has claimed.
    There were some complications in getting this blog posted and it was posted for you to read today, instead of earlier. I think that is soooo cool. Basically, God is using your celebrations TODAY to help sanctify the time this evening, when she is going to have to stand her ground.
    My name for God today: The Master of Nuanced Strategy.

  • "Who is like You, O Lord....?"
    By : Janis Leal On October 30th 2018

    “I will sing to the Lord, for he has triumphed gloriously;
    the horse and his rider he has thrown into the sea.
    The Lord is my strength and my song,
    and he has become my salvation;
    this is my God, and I will praise him,
    my father’s God, and I will exalt him.
    The Lord is a man of war;
    the Lord is his name….
    Your right hand, O Lord, glorious in power,
    your right hand, O Lord, shatters the enemy.
    In the greatness of your majesty you overthrow your adversaries….
    Who is like you, O Lord, among the gods?
    Who is like you, majestic in holiness,
    awesome in glorious deeds, doing wonders?
    You have led in your steadfast love the people whom you have redeemed;
    you have guided them by your strength to your holy abode.
    The peoples have heard; they tremble;
    pangs have seized the inhabitants of Philistia.
    Now are the chiefs of Edom dismayed;
    trembling seizes the leaders of Moab;
    all the inhabitants of Canaan have melted away.
    Terror and dread fall upon them;
    because of the greatness of your arm, they are still as a stone,
    till your people, O Lord, pass by,
    till the people pass by whom you have purchased.
    You will bring them in and plant them on your own mountain,
    the place, O Lord, which you have made for your abode,
    the sanctuary, O Lord, which your hands have established.
    The Lord will reign forever and ever.”
    Then Miriam the prophetess, the sister of Aaron, took a tambourine in her hand, and all the women went out after her with tambourines and dancing. And Miriam sang to them:
    “Sing to the Lord, for he has triumphed gloriously….”
    Hallelujah for this victory and all that will follow, for this new beginning, for this first of the new.

  • First Fruits
    By : Cynthia Harris On October 30th 2018

    Weeping with joy at the Lord’s kindness. This is Big stuff, indeed. Celebrating with both of you this very holy day, when He Who was the Firstfruits out of death has triumphed gloriously and made a public spectacle of His enemy. I bless your friend for the joy of rapid growth into her new freedom, and of deeply rooting into the abundance and pure freshness of the Lord’s heart for her. Bless you both for raw, unrestrained celebration today. Thanks for sharing with us.

  • Victory!!!!
    By : Tricia Reynolds On October 30th 2018

    I truly celebrate brave Margie this morning!!! I am encouraged and inspired by this story. Nothing like gaining victory in where you have been enduring ongoing torment. Wow.
    Thanks for sharing this.

  • A celebration of "Margie" using Psalm 40
    By : Walter Witham On October 30th 2018

    I sing a new song! For my Father, the Lord has heard me and answered my cry. For "Margie", today I will sing a new song on her behalf to recognize and proclaim the goodness of our King. Well fought, "Margie"! We celebrate the ending of your powerlessness and His goodness to you!! Rejoice!! Walt
    ed. note: This will be a slight departure from my daily worship, and I wonder if this is a part of a new season to fight on behalf of a particular personal war on behalf of a brother or sister? An added level of anticipation and expectation has added an extra to the ends of my smile this morning.

  • Wow, wow, wow!!!
    By : Judy Dalton On October 30th 2018
