Awesome Bible Study, on The Brass Saint! Very informative. Pastor Payton, Sr, you are a blessing. You taught an excellent study. You are such a Blessing to the Body of Christ and very inspiring.
Good Morning Family: I am doing well. I first had to begin this journey with the diagnosis of breast cancer. My first stop was to get aboard the boat of surgery and the beginning process of reconstruction. Then I was able to rest for a few weeks. Then my next stop was to get aboard the train of chemotherapy, which took me through many stops (physical changes), but I finally arrived without any negative layovers remaining in my brain by the grace of God. Now the airplane of radiation has been added. Am I ready to take this flight? At first I wasn't, but after prayer and meditation I am ready to fly for the next 7 weeks, beginning on July 19th. I figure there is someone out there that needs encouraging so I accept this added trip because I know God is using me as a vessel for His people. I meant to tell you all that on the day they informed me about taking radiation I cried for a bit. Was I sad? No. I was shedding tears of joy because of all God has done for me. Listening to the doctors explain the pathology report, the type of cancer I had, and all of the percentages was so overwhelming. From what they were telling me 'I was really sick." But when you compare what they said and what I can remember how I actually felt and how I feel today they didin't match. I kept telling people this was a mirage! I ain't sick. Of course people look at me crazy, but God is a healer. I am a witness that He is still healing in our time. I didn't have the side effects that their case studies said I was going to have. God allowed me favor in so many ways. So those tears were me praising God for what the doctor's say is not what God says. Every time they look at my scars they say WOW - what type of immune system do you have. I always say God's immune system! I had asked my boby to fight and become a soldier. Not for me to brag and boast about myself or to have someone lust for what I have, but fight so we can continue to be a temple that host the Holy Spirit and a vessel to spread the good news about God!!!!!
REPSONSES: Amen! Blessings to you, Sister Tineka Carr-Johnson for sharing how the Lord is blessings and carrying you through the STORM! What a testimony of total trust in the LORD. We are praising the Lord with you and rejoicing because you have VICTORY in Jesus Christ, Amen! The song by Marvin Sapp, "So Glad I Made It", dropped in my spirit as I was thinking about your testimony!

I just wanted to give thanks for all the encouraging words that were given to me yesterday. I am so blessed to have woman of God to go to when I need support and knowledge. I was telling someone the other day about this group (The Scarlet Armor). Speaking about how blessed we are to have one another. A true blessing to me. GBU all!!
Dear Sisters, I am feeling very conflicted in my personal and spirtual life at this moment. I don't want to get into the details...but I feel like I should be doing something but I just can't put my finger on it. I am doubting now that I am where I am suppose to be. Please send me some words of encouragement and some scripture please. I know that it is the devil making me doubt. I need to work on my endurance and patience. GBU!!
Good morning, Sisters, I wanted to share another praise report with each of you. Most of you are aware; one of my older sisters has been in the hospital and was not doing well at all. Praise the Lord for hearing our prayers, she is doing much better and now accepting her condition. She has been released from the hospital and all the breathing tubes have all been removed! Amen!
I bless God for each of you who prayed the prayer of Faith for us! Saturday was very challenging but like always, God came through! What appeared to be a bad situation turned out to be good. My niece (my sister's daughter who is in the hospital) announced she and her husband are expecting again! The Lord always turn things around, took the focus of the worst situation into the birth of another soul.
As we continue our journey together, let us pray for each other; especially the Men of GOD!!! We must get back to the order of God and pray the prayer of Faith that our Men of God will be strengthen in their Spiritual walk and Stand in Position as well, Amen!
Lord Bless & Much love to each of you!!!!!
All Anointed WOG in this blog, please keep Evan. Glori Ben in prayer, she is in the hospital with her sister who is not doing well, but we beleive the report of the Lord. If God is in control, and sent this Beloved Sister to minister in the "Armor" everyday, he can also send his "Angels" during this hour, into the ICU with her dear sister. Lord Bless WOG. There is POWER IN THE SAINTS OF GOD...Hallelujah! PASPS
God Bless to all my sisters and Brothers, "Praise the Lord" I ask the Lord with all humbleness to bless each and everyone of you, whatever the situation may be, He can fix! My testimoney is, My Daughter was shot at 16, she was at her dads, and she went to spend the night with her friends, Well the friends cousin which was 20 yrs. old, was playing with a gun, and stuck it to her side and shot her, she only weighed 105 lbs, Beautiful, loved cheerleading, singing, gymnastisces, They lifted her to Duke, I never left her side, for 69 days, 10 days she never moved, I prayerd and prayed, they lost her on the helicopter, and shocked her back, I give God all the Honor and the Praise! God heard my prayers, I even asked Him to take me, not her! It messed her back up and, she is no longer to do all he...r activitys. She will be 20 this month, and she will be having another back surgey in August! I've only got to see this boy 1 time, before this happened, cause my Daughter told me her family needed help with food, so I met the family, got up some food and took it to them, Now after she was shot, and came home, I seen him while I was pumping gas, and Let me tell you, I had God on one side, and the devil on the other, As a Mother, I ame so close, to getting out of the car, and beating the tar out of him, I was so angry and hurt, I felt hatred for him, But I listened to God, cause He said "Vengence is mine, saith the Lord! I left shaking, But if wasn't for the love and boldness of Jesus, and the obedientence, of God, I would have tried to hurt him! I've been dealing with this for 5 yrs.! I knew in my heart, I had to forgive him, or God couldn't forgive me! This dark ugly cloud has been hanging over my head! As I was at church the other night, I cried, I just said you never know when it's your time, and I needed closure! I read Luke-4:1-4! As I read I remembered this man, calling my son and saying bring all your family and all your friends, and bring a bat, and whatever you wanted, and beat me, as long as you want. But you know Dear Sisters and Brothers, He knew he done wrong and He was wanting to die for what he done to my Daughter, He was willing to let all take his life, cause the guilt, and the nightmares! I said no, But after remembering what this boy said, Hit my heart with compassion, and I can let it go now, I forgive him, and I love Him!, "Oh thank you Jesus, thank you, The storm is over for me, I have peace now, I have love and not hatred now, I can forgive now, But you see, I give God all the honor, the glory, and the praise, He has been there for me no matter what storm I had to go through, I can honestly say, I couldn't of done this, without my Lord and Savior! I thank you all for listening, I am happier now, through Victory, and God's precious Faith Hope and Love, I just say I love you Jesus with all my being, sincerely Linda Edwards (The Scarlet Armor, Facebook)!♥!

Blessings to our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I need to share my testimony which is quite long but I want all to know that the Lord is in the blessing business and listens to each and every prayer, thought and feeling we have and will never leave or forsake us.
I have been in prayer for years to find a new home for my family. Over the last 6 months, I have been in the deepest depths of pain that I had never been before but slowly and surely he is bringing me out and all he asked was to trust and hold his hand.
About a week ago, I was on my computer and the Lord spoke to me and told me to check this home website that I usually check. A picture popped up with the description and he said to me "daughter, that is your home". So, I text one of my former relators out of the blue and said I am interested. Within seconds, she text back and made the appointment for me to view the home.
We went to the home and a young 9 year old girl gave us the grand tour, (very mature for her age). I was able to see past the homeowners belongings, personal stuff, I also felt the presence of the Lord. The family is Indian but there pictures all over the home of Jesus.
We left the home and not even 10 minutes later, my realtor received a phone call whom we thought was the other realtor of the home. He asked us to please come back so he could meet me and was I happy with the house.
Of course I said yes, without even seeing me he told me to ask for ANYTHING I wanted and he would give it to me. I asked him to come down on the price of $250, he said of course. I asked the house to be freshly painted and that was it. We return to the house, he sees me dressed in sweatpants, a t-shirt, not in my business attire. He says immediately that the Lord told him that I was the ONE he had been waiting on for months to rent the house. He felt my spirit and told me the home was indeed blessed. There were others before me but they were not the "one" the Lord sent.
I stood in there in awe as I watched him call his agent, take the house off the market and meet all my terms. I did an application but he never once reviewed it, which means he never checked my credit, my employment, my salary, my previous landlord, history, absolutely nothing.
He told me what is the point if he is trusting the Lord and he is doing what he was commanded to do.
1 week later the deal is solid, they are moving out at present, have completed all the items I asked for and contracted a lease to own offer.
They knew me 2 minutes, and it all happened so fast. My point is the Lord is STILL ON THE THRONE and anything is possible with the Lord. He is able to perform and will do exceedingly abundantly above all you can even imagine.
Keep the faith!!

Lord Bless everyone. I have recently been part of the Scarlet Armour group on facebook and what a blessing it has been.
In the hustle and bustle of life, there is nothing too hard for the Lord. Through this group, even while working during the day, I receive uplifting messages and scriptures from the Lord which are just what I need to hear right then and there.
How mighty our Lord is and let the redeemed of the Lord say so.
Amen and keep up the Good Work BCF.
Dear friends and loved ones,
New blood test confirm that there is no more lyme disease found in the blood itself...all my other blood tests and my symptoms show that I still have the disease...we guess that it is already in the nerve cells which is bad news...I have an appointment with the neurologist next Monday to find out how advanced the nerve damage is...besides the pain I still have the skin burning and numbness in my arms, hands and feet...
The other blood results show that my organs are already reacting...my insulin level is still too high...also my cortisone level which means my body has a lot of stress dealing with the disease...it also shows that my hormons are all over the place and my thyroid is hypofunctioning...all these are symptoms of the disease and are often shown by patients that have this disease...
We started a new IV cycle last Monday...it is a different anibiotic...Monday was still ok but Tuesday started a storm...no, it was a hurrican...the pain is worse than anything I experienced before and it is like I am becoming a different person...all the pain medicine doesn't really help...no relieve...the only thing I can do is enduring...I honestly don't know how I got through Wednesday and Thursday...
From Thursday afternoon until today we took a little vacation and drove to the ocean...I used the time to prepare for what is coming next when I get back to the IV's in twelve hours...I know this will be way worse than what was the last five months...I know it will be going deep into the valley...but I am willing to take every step down I have to take to be able to one day take a step up...
I ask you to please pray for my husband and my kids that they will be able to bear seeing me suffering and not being able to do much about it...and please pray for strength for me that I can go this way til the end...
I thank you from the bottom of my heart!
Love, Birgit You need to be the change you wish to see in the world...

Lord I come to you on behave of my sister today God where she is right now in her life with her illness. And Lord we know all seasons come with reasons .

God every time a tear drops from there eye Lord I need you to sweep their minds and hearts with your peace. Beyond all understanding.

Hi Glori, I'm your New friend Tekita I was wondering can you start a Facebook Group for Scarlet Amour. Its just something about the name that's stands out to Me! And I have so many women friends that's seeking God but really don't know where to start and at times they be asking me how and I'm still crawling myself. And as I come in and out of Be patient God is Not done with me Yet I see You and many other women there that can help some of the ladies here in Chicago with spiritual growth. That Group really inspires me and I'm thinking if these ladies had a group where it only Ladies and they can go to the group and be fed the word of God and eat as much they like then they may begin to crawl and then walk toward a better relationship with Christ. And if the group is closed the enemy cannot mis use this tool that the women are using to move closer to God. Its just a thought that came out of no where for me to ask you. But its something about you that stood out to me when I needed help dealing with my mother and sis situation your thee only one that seeked help from God fro me and I'm still grateful for that. 2GodBeThe Glory for Women like you! Thanks for listening and please give the group a prayer and see what God say if he say Yes its a reason why and if he say No it a reason why that only he knows. That's why he is the King of all things. PS let me know what God said. Thanks A lot! Blessings steady coming!!
I would like to thank God first and foremost, as well as my aunt Glori. Through my life's journey, I have ran across numerous bumps in the road. The bumps in the road were nothing but experiences through God's grace and mercy for me. I have listened to my aunt; she continues to pray as well as speak the word of the Lord to me. When she does, I always make sure I have an ear to hear what the Lord is saying through her, because believe it or not, my aunt Glori is a powerful person that moves ME! I will never forget when I was facing a loosing battle at a point in my life, back in 2008, and I turned to my aunt Glori, who then in turn, turned me to Proverbs. Thank you auntie for being there through it all, and Proverbs was a life saver. instead of fighting the streets, I fought it out with Proverbs and God is now using me like he knows how.. Halleluja God is an on time God yes he is. AMEN
Hi Sis. Glori, a couple of months ago you responded to a prayer I posted on streaming faith and at the time I was very unsure of how to respond back to you. I have matured in my faith tremendously since then and my grandma continues to grow stronger everyday. I now know without a shadow of a doubt that God is still able to heal! Towards the end of your email you began to speak as if you knew me or had met me before and much of what you said was confirmation of what God has been telling me for a really long time. So I just wanted to reach out to you and say thank you for your encouragement and prayers.
It means alot that you would reach out and pray for me and my family. You dont even know me and God touched your heart to pray for us. You have been such a blesing for me today. Thank you. I really mean it from the bottom of my heart. Please contiue to lift us up in prayer. God is a good God and I know he has the power to do great and mighty things for me and my situation. I am standing on Gods word to do what he said he would do for me and I know when he does it, it was all a supernatural process from the Lord giving me and my family a miracle.. God Bless and keep us in prayer, Jacqueline
