Rejoice in the Lord

How I rejoice – in Him who never leaves us!


Isa 57:15  For thus says the high and lofty One--He Who inhabits eternity,

Whose name is Holy: I dwell in the high and holy place, but with him also who is

of a thoroughly penitent and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble and

to revive the heart of the thoroughly penitent [bruised with sorrow for sin].

What a journey - walking in absolute dependency on Yeshua!  All of us are walking this journey of Lazarus - from death in our spirits to life in abundance in the promised land, just as YHVH has promised.  Step-by-step He is transforming us back into life, into His likeness. As the stone was removed from Lazarus’s grave, the Light and Truth could come in – with Life following. This is a LIFE CHANGING process and because He loves us so much He will not give up on us. 

I read about Lazarus and see how people were mourning around his grave – but he couldn’t hear them. The saddest part was that he wasn’t even aware of Yeshua’s presence. That part – the trauma - in all of us, is completely dead! And it is dead because of iniquity, sin, transgressions and pain. This is not physical death but spiritual death. We all inherited a family occult bank filled with memories from the parents that came to the children. That bank is under control of the Baal system and his ways. The broken spirit part (emotion) of that person with all its Baal senses is in the valley of death or hell, covered with death clothes and shackles. Darkness and lies filled with tormenting is all that he sees and hears. And you say to me ‘but my husband, wife, child or parents do not want to hear what I say to them?’ They cannot hear you! They are trapped in this place and all their senses are dulled.  An all you will be able to see is their nature of darkness being fed from this place of death.  The stone before the grave needs to be removed so that life, love and light can come into their darkness! The way to remove the stone is to keep on praying and by faith breaking all the legal right (repentance to redemption) that the enemy has to keep us in the grave. This starts with acknowledging that I am in the dark. Yeshua paid the full price; it is just that we don’t see with our eyes of understanding (faith) what happened to us in the spirit.  So, in order to survive we want to fight in the flesh with our tongues or try to dull the pain with Pharmacia.

The good news is that Yeshua said that He will never break a bruised reed (Math 12:20). The bruised reed is a heart that becomes more and more hardened.  The spirit inside is dying more and more because of sin and pain. All the anointing of His life and destiny in us flowed out and the reed became bruised with years and years of serving the Baal Sun god in our darkness. The reed needs to be restored. We need our spirit to be healed, cleansed and filled with the anointing of Holy Spirit.  

The way we treat most of the ‘dead’ in our spirits is with Pharmacia, addictions like alcohol, drugs, work, sports and all fleshly desires. But, the spiritual deep sleep of Lazarus and of most of us, refers to spiritual deadness and passivity – an inability to appreciate or even understand spiritual warnings or a yearning for spiritual life. This is why people are so trapped in denial, their spirit man is dead!

Eph 6:12  For we are not wrestling with flesh and blood [contending only with

physical opponents], but against the despotisms, against the powers, against

[the master spirits who are] the world rulers of this present darkness, against

the spirit forces of wickedness in the heavenly (supernatural) sphere.

In the grave you cannot sense the presence of Yeshua, you cannot hear Him, or even see the goodness and kindness that people or YHVH gave to you. You cannot respond to the call of Yeshua, and you are not in fellowship with Him. In this place your spirit is not one with His.  There is a difference between resuscitation and resurrection. In resuscitation you die again and again, but when the King of Glory comes and resurrects your dead spirit, you are alive forevermore. All the darkness in us needs to be resurrected and Lazarus needs to become alive again! And the only way is to take full responsibility for my life and my actions, to bring it to Yeshua, to repent and to ask Him to wash me with His Blood.

In this process I found that there was a battle much deeper, as deep as in the seed of man. And this hook that was in man, keeping him in the grave – was the occult seed in him. This hook came in where our forefathers made covenants with death and Sheol.

Isa 28:18  And your covenant with death shall be annulled, and your agreement

with Sheol (the place of the dead) shall not stand; when the overwhelming

scourge passes through, then you will be trodden down by it.

We kept on struggling with Aldo and the epilepsy. I cannot preach that Yeshua paid the full price, but we sit with a demon (epilepsy) fighting us,having legal right doing so.  After a forty day fast where we really sought YHVH’s face He answered us through Wisdom and Aldo’s pen. ‘Mom, there is a battle in the seed of man. And he started to explain Lazarus’s condition to me. Mom a part of me (trauma) is still in the grave, in the valley of death. And there the death of our spiritual wounds, the darkness, torments me all the time. This is why I have epilepsy (spirit of death and dumbness). It is the torment of the evil in our generational wound that I inherited and that gave them access to give me trauma. Out of that place they torment all of us. Children don’t sleep at night because of fear, colic, ADHD, bed wetting, we fight addiction, lust, anger, hate, rejection and bitterness – these sicknesses and symptoms  are all coming from these wounds. ‘

Generational divination in all man allowed the cult seed to enter into all man. You have to come from Mars not to have this in your seed.  You inherited it or reintroduced it to your bloodline through things like fortune tellers, horoscopes, astrology, warlocks, witches, sorcery, hypnosis, astral projection, magic, palm reading, crystal balls, enchanters, water witching, divination, rebellion, manipulation, control, drugs, financial difficulty, haughtiness, pride, arrogance, ego, vanity, denial, adultery, judgements, self sufficiency, operating out of the Baal system where you became your children’s god and protector. These fruits are manifested in that broken part of people – in their Lazarus. It needs to be acknowledged and repented and then the Blood of Yeshua will wash us all, and resurrect us all back into life. True life – life in abundance.

Aldo and Chantelle was in a car accident, and their vehicle was written off. Yeshua held them and no one got hurt. It was difficult for me when I realised that it was the same time her mother had an accident a year ago. It was an evil time curse, a time bomb! It is an example of the cult curse with its time bombs in our seed, and brokenness that we inherit from our families.


Gen 3:15  And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your

seed (Offspring) and her seed (Offspring)

I sought YHVH’s face, asking ‘please help us, I am not going to keep on fighting the evil like this, I can see there is a stronghold. Please help us to understand, open my eyes of understanding so that I can understand what is fighting us!’

Aldo wrote about family altars that cry out our names? ‘Abba, I do not understand everything? Please help me.’

So then the occult 666 prayer came and Aldo wrote, ‘Mom, please pray it 7 times like Jericho’s walls till you feel it is over. After the first night we prayed the prayer (11 pages). He wrote the following morning:


Letter Translation: "Dorethea occult (curse) is June, occult (curse) was broken last night."

Dorethea (my birth name) cult (bomb) of June was broken last night.  What he said was – that the cult curse that I carried in my seed was linked to June.  And on 19 June the cult bomb went off and we were nearly dead. It could happen because of the legal right (cult iniquity) in my seed. That family altar of iniquity needed to be serviced and because of this they used the trauma of the accident to take him to that dark place of secrecy, to torment him all the time. The trauma from the accident shattered Aldo and that part of his emotions was stuck in die valley of death.

We continued to pray the prayer, and today I can say that we are free! Aldo is epilepsy free, and I believe this prayer (the blood of Yeshua) is the key that unlocks the shackles of Lazarus. Just remember that after you are unshackled, you will still need to take off layer by layer of the death clothes. But, this is a huge key for us. Aldo write ‘Mom, we are free, now all the brokenness can come out and be healed!’

This prayer goes deep and cleanses  many hidden obstacles in the realm of the spirit. It is a good thing if husband and wife can both pray it. My Josh prayed it as well for 7 days. All the glory to our King who is never late. My desire was that this could break before they get married. Because it is covenant and what is yours becomes mine in the spirit through covenant.

Aldo and Chantel are getting married in September. It is going to be a small wedding one weekday afternoon here in Hartbeespoort. It is just too far to do it in Cape Town as all our family are here.

So many people mail, asking how can they bless their marriage? Thank you so, so very much!  Please, only as Holy Spirit leads you, you can bless to Aldo’s account and please reference  it ‘Marriage’

We are very excited about moving to Cape Town. Josh was accepted at Paul Roos boys school in Stellenbosch. So we will start there in January, all as Abba planned for us. I go where He leads us.

We all need to enter into the promised land, so let’s get all the double out of us, and start walking in His plan for our lives.

God bless you, and run the race of faith. It is a journey, and He will not leave you nor forsake you!!
