"2019 Is The Year of Persuasion!"
 
 
 
 
 
 
Happy, Blessed and Glorious New Year!  We Bless You Covenant Partners and Friends of JCM in this New Year of 2019!  How truly wonderful it is to be alive in this Day and Hour of our Lord!  Hallelujah!  That The Master has chosen us all to live and minister in this Time of History, well, to God be The Glory!  THANK YOU SO MUCH for being with us and this Ministry as we do The Lord’s Will and continually serve The Uncompromising Word from The Lord!  We Promise To Always Do That!  Partners and Friends YOU ARE so very important to God, to us and to this Ministry!  We Are Very Grateful to be with you and a part of your lives.  We are praying and professing The Word over you daily.  What a Privilege we have!  We Love You! - Dewayne and Jamie
 
        Every year it is our honor and to our excitement to seek The Lord and to see what He wants to tells His Church about the New Year that we turn the page over to.  And boy has He told us something extraordinary!  A few months back I began to seek The Lord and His Heart about the year of “19” that we were coming upon.  And a few weeks back while driving and praying in The Spirit The Master answered my questions and said, “2019 Is The Year Of Persuasion!”  At first, I thought, “WOW!”  And then I thought, What kind of year are we going into?  For that Word, “Persuasion” seemed huge to me!  And so I have been on a journey since that day in the car when He spoke and The Lord has uncovered some marvelous things!  So, let’s get to it, Beloved of God!
 
        Normally I would be going into all the many words that the Number “19” means, because as we have taught for many years now, Numbers Mean Words.  Numbers mean words TO GOD AND HIS PEOPLE!  When you and I see Numbers in The Word of God we are also seeing WORDS, Beloved!  The Hebrew People have always known this and they still practice this Truth today!  NUMBERS ARE A WAY OF COMMUNICATION between God and His People!  That is why you see so many Numbers in The Bible!  God is speaking to us through the Numbers too!  Praise The Lord! 
 
 
 
 
       When one looks at the Book of Revelation, for example you see the Number “12” many times, don’t you?  Well, the Number “12” has many Word Meanings to it, just some are Divine Government, Order, Divine Power, New Jerusalem and Apostle.  Now we are in the Prophetic Year of “19!”  And one thing I must write to you is that the Number “19” does not have as many meanings in words as more of the other numbers we have seen God use in our lives and in The Bible.  Yet, Beloved THERE ARE SOME THINGS THAT WILL DAZZLE YOU TO SEE THE LORD’S MEANING AND WORD TO US IN THIS PROPHETIC YEAR!  
 

       When one looks up the word “Persuasion” which is what The Lord said 2019 would be the Year of, we find the definitions of the action or fact of persuading someone or of being persuaded to do or believe something.  A belief or set of beliefs, especially religious or political ones.  A group or sect holding a particular religious belief.  Words that also mean ”Persuasion” are a group, grouping, sect, denomination, party, camp, side, faction, affiliation, school of thought, belief, creed, faith, philosophy, coaxing, persuading, coercion, inducement, convincing, encouragement, urging, enticement, sweet-talking,
arm-twisting.

 
 
 
 
 
In addition, the 19th letter of the Hebrew alphabet is kof which literally means, “the back of the head.”  The Cambridge Dictionary online defines, “the back of your head” to mean AS IF SOMETHING IS AT/IN THE BACK OF YOUR MIND.

      

       The above information IS SO IMPORTANT TO WHAT THE LORD WANTS US TO KNOW FOR THIS YEAR OF 19!  There ARE TWO PEOPLE in The Bible who are literally “19!”  If we took the Hebrew letters of these two individual’s names in The Bible and substituted the numbers that go with the letters of their names in Hebrew, BOTH OF THEIR NAMES EQUAL OUT TO NINETEEN “19!”
 
 
The Enormous Price!
 
 
 
 
 “God said, Let Us [Father, Son, and Holy Spirit] make mankind in Our image, after Our likeness, and let them have complete authority over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, the [tame] beasts,and over all of the earth, and over everything that creeps upon the earth. 27 So God created man  in His own image, in the image and likness of God He created him; male and female He created them. 28 And God blessed them and said to them, Be fruitful, multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it [using all its vast resources in the service of God and man]; and have dominion over the fish of the sea, the birds of the air, and over every living creature that moves upon the earth.” Genesis 1:26-28 (AMPC)
 
       How much we see here in Genesis 1.  Mankind, both man and woman (man with a womb) is created by “Father, Son, and Holy Spirit” and “mankind” is made IN THEIR IMAGE and IN THEIR LIKENESS!  Extraordinary!   THINK ABOUT THIS . . . WE ARE MADE IN GOD’S IMAGE AND GOD’S LIKENESS!  WE ARE LIKE HIM!  And that is His Idea . . . He wants us Like Him!  He also says that WE HAVE COMPLETE AUTHORITY . . . OVER ALL THE EARTH!”  We are also to “SUBDUE” the Earth!  “Subdue” means to control, master, overcome and keep in check.  And that is how it all started out.  Then when Adam and Eve sinned in the Garden, MUCH was lost.  BUT GOD, BOUGHT IT ALL BACK FOR US!  JESUS BOUGHT IT ALL BACK!  EVERYTHING WE LOST IN THE GARDEN WAS PURCHASED BACK FOR US BY JESUS.
     
       A Born Again Believer in Jesus Christ who has surrendered his or her life to Jesus and made Him their Lord and living for God has the same authority that was given in the beginning before the fall of Adam and Eve.  We are in right standing with God and therefore ALL THAT WE WERE CREATED TO BE LIKE AND TO HAVE AUTHORITY IN IS OURS!  We are MADE IN GOD’S LIKENESS.  We are CREATED IN GOD’S IMAGE.  And we have “complete authority over”. . . “over all of the earth.”  Again, because of Jesus THIS IS WHAT WE HAVE RECEIVED AND INHERITED from Father through Jesus!  And this is HOW we are to be living in the Earth!  This is WHO WE REALLY ARE CHURCH!  Hallelujah!
 
 
 
 
       Now let’s think about something here.  Eve had the same authority that has been given to us NOW.  Yet, she had it FROM THE VERY BEGINNING, didn’t she?  She and Adam walked and talked with God. (Genesis 3:8-11)  They lived in such a realm that they had communion with God to where it was common for them to be in God’s Presence and that He (GOD) would come to them in the Garden and they would share Fellowship with each other!  They were so comfortable with Him!  They were LIKE Him and IN HIS IMAGE!  They thought and created and had authority LIKE Him!  The names to which Adam identified the animals IS THE SAME THINGS THAT WE TODAY CALL THEM!  Why is that?  That is because Adam was LIKE God!  And when God said, “Light Be!”. . . “LIGHT WAS!”  When Adam said, “Giraffe!” . . . “Giraffe” WAS!  And Eve was made in the LIKENESS and IMAGE of God too for The Word says, “He created them” in His likeness and “let THEM have complete authority.”  So what happened to Adam and Eve?
 
        When Adam was sent to Earth and given his mission, God made sure that He told Adam the way he had to handle what he was given responsibility of and authority over. 
 
 
 
 

Then the Lord God planted a garden in Eden in the east, and there he placed the man he had made. 9 The Lord God made all sorts of trees grow up from the ground—trees that were beautiful and that produced delicious fruit. In the middle of the garden he placed the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. . . 15 The Lord God placed the man in the Garden of Eden to tend and watch over it. 16 But the Lord God warned him, “You may freely eat the fruit of every tree in the garden17 except the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. If you eat its fruit, you are sure to die.” Genesis 2:8-9, 15-17 (NLT)

        God made many trees grow and produce delicious fruit for Adam to eat and a Garden for Him to tend to.  He also told Adam not to eat of ONE TREE, the tree of knowledge of good and evil and that if one did eat of that one tree, death would surely happen.

        We then see the woman coming to the Garden to be with Adam when she was made from him.  Next, on one day we see in Chapter 3 of Genesis that a plan of the enemy of God was about to begin.  Let’s look “in” together.

 

The “OUTSIDE OF”

 

 

 

“The serpent was the shrewdest of all the wild animals the Lord God had made. One day he asked the woman, “Did God really say you must not eat the fruit from any of the trees in the garden?” 2 “Of course we may eat fruit from the trees in the garden,” the woman replied. 3 “It’s only the fruit from the tree in the middle of the garden that we are not allowed to eat. God said, ‘You must not eat it or even touch it; if you do, you will die.’”

4 “You won’t die!” the serpent replied to the woman. 5 “God knows that your eyes will be opened as soon as you eat it, and  you will be like God, knowing both good and evil.” 6 The woman was convinced. She saw that the tree was beautiful and its fruit looked delicious, and she wanted the wisdom it would give her. So she took some of the fruit and ate it. Then she gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it, too. 7 At that moment their eyes were opened, and they suddenly felt shame at their nakedness. So they sewed fig leaves together to cover themselves.” Genesis 3:1-7 (NLT)

      
       Friend, EVE WAS ALREADY “LIKE GOD!”  SHE WAS MADE IN THE “LIKENESS” OF GOD!  The devil used the AUTHORITY that God had given Eve ON HERSELF!  HER EYES WERE AS “OPEN” AS THEY NEEDED TO BE!  SHE DIDN’T NEED TO KNOW THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL!  Everything WAS PERFECT!  Eve had never known anything but PERFECT, until this!  She was PERFECT.  The weather was PERFECT.  Her mind was in total peace.  Her body had NEVER KNOWN SICKNESS!  The Lord had made everything in all ways PERFECT.  And the only way the devil could get to the ones who had all of the authority on Earth was for them to do the ONE THING that The One Who gave them their authority told them not to do.  And it began with the devil Persuading Eve to not believe The Word of God. 
 
        The serpent BEGAN by “slightly” saying something opposite of what God said.  There was only ONE TREE that was not to be eaten of.  The devil said, Did God really say you must not eat the fruit from any of the trees in the garden?”   This is the first time that Persuasion was used to question what God had said.  The next subtle exchange from the devil was to go against what God had said AGAIN with the devil saying to Eve; “You won’t die!” if Eve ate of the fruit of that one tree.  The third subtle exchange was the enemy telling Eve that, God knows that your eyes will be opened as soon as you eat it and you will be like God, knowing both good and evil. (Genesis 3:5)  This was a HALF TRUTH!  Yes, God knows that your eyes will be opened as soon as you eat it . . . knowing both good and evil WAS TRUE.  THE LIE was “you will be like God.”  Again, EVE WAS ALREADY “LIKE” GOD!  She was made in God’s Likeness and was given complete authority!
 
 
 
 
 
       The enemy “convinced” her or “PERSUADED” her that God was HOLDING OUT ON HER!  That she was not whole and fully supplied for and had everything she could ever need and want RIGHT THEN!  The Bible tells us that she was made in the likeness and image of God and she had “complete authority over”. . . “over all of the earth.” (Genesis 1:26)  Eve already had “ALL!”  Eve had EVERYTHING . . . she had “ALL!”  Yet, because she began TO THINK that what she had and who she was, wasn’t ENOUGH she began to be “convinced” or “PERSUADED” that what was OUTSIDE OF HER LIFE and “GARDEN LIFE” WAS NOT ENOUGH!  Eve was persuaded by the devil that WHAT GOD SAID WAS NOT TRUE and THAT HE DID NOT HAVE HER BEST INTEREST AT HEART.  Eve believed what the devil told her OVER WHAT GOD HAD TOLD HER.  Then Eve started using her SENSES to continue the PERSUASION that the enemy started.  For The Bible says that, The woman was convinced. She saw that the tree was beautiful and its fruit looked delicious, and she wanted the wisdom it would give her. So she took some of the fruit and ate it. Then she gave some to her husband, who was with her, and he ate it too.” Genesis 3:6 (NLT) 
 
       Not only was Eve “convinced” but so was Adam!  Adam could have (and should have) stopped the “PERSUASION” that was going on from the devil, but HE DID NOT!  Think about how many trees they must have walked by to get to the middle of that Garden to get to that ONE TREE!  The Word says there were “all sorts of trees . . . that were beautiful and that produced delicious fruit.”  So they could have eaten at any time.  Eve and Adam’s appetite was not what pulled them to the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil . . . no, what drew them to THAT tree was their MINDS.  Adam and Eve began to THINK OUTSIDE OF WHAT GOD SAID AND TOOK THEIR MINDS OFF OF WHO THEY REALLY WERE!
 
 
       What Eve had originally “believed” we know by The Bible!  She had believed God and what He had told her.  Eve had faith in what God’s Word was.  The devil knew that he had to persuade Eve TO NOT BELIEVE WHAT GOD HAD SAID!  So, the devil began with little subtle words to “twist” what God had said.  He tells half-truths so that it sounds somewhat right.  The devil is a “con,” a “defraud” and he desires to deceive the Children of God then and now.
 
       And that is exactly what the devil will try to do this year, Beloved!  The Lord wants me to tell you that, "2019 is the year of Persuasion!"  The Lord wants us all to be on guard!  The enemy's plan for this year is to try to get The Lord's Children to not believe what God has said and to believe what the devil is saying or showing us!  The same “play” the devil made in the Garden will be the same tactic he will use this year of “19” . . . The year of Persuasion.  But, Hallelujah, we know what to look for and we can and we will make a decision TO BELIEVE THE WORD OF GOD!  Not the word of the enemy or what things LOOK LIKE or FEEL LIKE!  WE WILL BELIEVE GOD AND HIS WORD!  We will SUBMIT TO GOD and RESIST THE DEVIL in Jesus Name! (James 4:7)  Don't look OUTSIDE of what God has said in His Word!  Don’t let the devil “Persuade” you that what God has said in His Word isn’t what He really meant!  Don’t fall for,  
 

What God really means is this . . . Or, God really doesn’t mean that!

        Church, what God said, IS WHAT HE MEANS.  PERIOD.  No matter if it is against what the whole World is saying . . . DON’T LOOK or THINK OUTSIDE OF WHAT GOD HAS SAID!  Eve did and it cost her EVERYTHING!  Eve’s name comes to the Number “19.”  Eve was “convinced” of what the devil told her instead of what God told her.  Eve is “19” and Eve was “Persuaded.”

 

The Second “19”

 
       Let’s look at the second person whose name equals “19” by taking the Hebrew letters and adding the numbers that go with the letters of their names in Hebrew and that person is Job.  The Bible tells us that Job was a righteous man.  He was full of integrity. (Job 1:8)  We know that the devil, the enemy took much away from him.  The devil took his cattle, his sheep, his “business,” his servants and his children.  Then the devil went after his health.  And then we know at the end of the book of Job that God returned all that the devil stole and doubled it! (Job 42:10)  
 
 
       So how does “19” and the Message that The Lord has given us on “Persuasion” connect to this other person in The Bible whose name is literally “19?”  Well, there was something going on in Job’s life that gave the devil “a way” or “a place” to come in and do all of those horrible things to him and his family.
 
“For the thing which I greatly fear comes upon me, and that of which I am afraid befalls me. 26 I was not or am not at ease, nor had I or have I rest, nor was I or am I quiet, yet trouble came and still comes [upon me].”
Job 3:25-26 (AMPC)
 
 
       FEAR was what permitted the devil to come into Job’s life and do the things he did to him.  Job feared in his mind and heart the very things that happened to him.  In Job’s own words we see that he “greatly” feared and that what he “greatly” feared was what came!  The devil knew what Job had fear about in his life.  And how did the devil know that?  Well, the thoughts or “Persuasions” CAME FROM THE DEVIL!  That was what the devil was doing!  And that is what he does with the People of God now!
 
 
 
 
       The devil sends those thoughts to “Persuade” us to think and BELIEVE what he is sending us.  If we don’t cast him out of our minds and hearts, he will eventually convince you that WHAT HE IS SAYING IS TRUTH AND NOT WHAT GOD HAS SAID ABOUT THE MATTER!  SOUND FAMILIAR?  FEAR is the weapon of the devil.  And if he can make us fear and not fight back and begin to believe what he is subtly telling us then we will begin to believe and put our faith into what the devil is saying about our situations and not what God has said.  He did it with Eve and he did it with Job!  The devil used his “Persuasions” to get the minds of Job and Eve OFF OF WHAT WAS TRUE! 
 

        Both Eve and Job had a lot in common!

 
  •  Both were in places in their lives of prosperity, health, fullness and wholeness and comfort BEFORE THE ENEMY WAS GIVEN A FOOTHOLD!

  • Both began to THINK DIFFERENTLY and BEGAN TO LISTEN TO THE SUBTLE WORDS-LIES-HALF TRUTHS or “Persuasions” of the enemy.
  • The subtle “Persuasions” from the devil got them to BEGIN AT SOME POINT NOT TO BELIEVE what GOD HAD SAID and what GOD HAD DONE THAT WAS ALREADY VERY EVIDENT IN THEIR LIVES ALL AROUND THEM!
  • Both Job and Eve had terrible results in their lives because they believed the “Persuasions” of the devil over the Word of God and Goodness of God!

 Beloved of God, this is not a “bad” Message from God!  This is a NOTICE from Father that this will be the TACTIC OF THE ENEMY this Year!  What a Wonderful God we serve that will tell us the TACTICS OF OUR ENEMY and let us know beforehand what to expect so that we can defeat our enemy!  Praise The Lord!

        As mentioned in the beginning of this Teaching the 19th
letter of the Hebrew alphabet is kof which literally means,
“the back of the head.”  So, let us ALL ask ourselves, what do we have lingering in the “back of our mind?”  What has the enemy been subtly telling us that is a root of a fear on our minds?  What have we not taken our authority over that the devil is “Persuading” us in?  What are we afraid of?  And what lies have we believed from the enemy that God has got Truth for us to believe in His Word about? 
 
 
 
       Church, Eve and Job are identified by “19”.  Both Job and Eve were “Persuaded” by the devil in the Old Testament to believe and fear what the devil was telling them.  Praise The Lord Jesus for telling us that “2019 is the year of Persuasion!”  We are victorious for we BELIEVE GOD AND HIS WORD!  And when the devil tries to “persuade” us, we speak what God says and tell the devil “I resist you devil!”  Then he has to flee! (James 4:7)  Hallelujah!
 
        Before we end, ONE THING IS NEEDED and that is to ask you are you where you need to be with Jesus?  Don’t begin this year being away from Him in any way.  This is your time to be in full alignment with Him.  He loves You So Much!  Don’t hold back ANYTHING from Him!  Give HIM YOUR ALL!  RIGHT NOW!  ALL OF YOU!  Just say a prayer like this and MEAN IT WITH ALL THAT YOU ARE . . . ALL YOUR BEING! 
   

Lord, I have not given you my entire life, I know it and so do you.  Please forgive me of my sins and all that I have done wrong.  Please clean me and use my life for something.  I renounce sin and I commit my life to you and make You The Lord of my life.  Please fill me with The Holy Spirit and Power.  I am now saved and a Follower of Jesus Christ in Jesus Name, Amen!


       If You Surrendered Your Life To Jesus, Please Let Us Know Here At The Ministry and We Will Send You Some Resources For Free and if you are in need of a Bible, please let us know!  We Love You!  The Lord has got a GREAT YEAR AHEAD OF US!  Until Next Month,

                                    Keep Getting Ready, Jesus Is Coming!
