Physical Healing is Manifesting in 2018!

•March 1, 2018 • Leave a Comment

What I’m hearing from the Lord for 2018.

There are many things the Lord has been revealing to me about 2018.  Prophetically, it is a year of walking by faith and not by sight.  I am excited for what the Lord is going to release this year.  Specifically, I believe many destinies will pop open and people will see supernatural favor and insights for the ministry they are to launch.

However, what I am most excited about is the revelation the Spirit is giving to, my husband and me.  This year is going to be a year in which the Father releases physical healing to His people.  We will see miracles upon miracles being released into the body of Christ for healing of their bodies.  We will experience a teaching and equipping of the saints like never before in the area of healing.

God’s people must be made whole in order to be effective for the Kingdom of God.  How can we preach and testify healing if we don’t receive it?  We don’t want to ruin our testimony by preaching healing and living in sickness.  God desires us whole.  Therefore, this year DeGraw Ministries will be taking a message of physical healing around the United States!  We will be empowering people in what Jesus says about healing through the Gospels and we will be breaking it down in a way that is easy to understand so you are able to apply it to your personal life.  Healing is yours because of what Jesus did for you!  Will you open your heart to receive it?



Prophetic Refreshing

•February 27, 2018 • Leave a Comment

Yielding to the Spirit will create a prophetic refreshing in this season!

The Spirit has gifts of refreshing for you, yes for you, but you won’t position yourself to be in His presence in order to receive these gifts; being in His presence costs. It costs your time, it costs your sacrifice and it costs your flesh. It costs giving up control over what you want for what He longs to give you. Make no mistake He wants you in His presence. He wants to love on you. He desires to give you more. You want to be refreshed, but you won’t settle down enough to receive the refreshing He has for you. He has a place of rest that you can enter now, if you will be willing and obedient to do it. It doesn’t matter what others think or if they don’t understand. I have called you to this time. A time of gaining My purpose for your life, a time of vast companionship and rest. Rest in Me alone, not your fellow companions, but Me.


Waging the Prophetic War

•February 26, 2018 • Leave a Comment

Prophetic declarations will bring forth both results and warfare.  When you know how to declare, you can decree against the warfare that will attempt to attack you.

God the Father declared over Jesus his Son, which led to warfare, but Jesus knew how to combat the warfare with His words.  We too must speak out to combat the spirit realm which attempts to attack us.

God declared out loud a prophetic declaration over His son.

“Coming up out of the water, He immediately saw the heavens opened and the Spirit descending on Him like a dove. And a voice came from heaven, saying, ‘You are My beloved Son in whom I am well pleased.’ The Spirit immediately drove Him into the wilderness. And He was there in the wilderness for forty days, tempted by Satan, and was with the wild beasts. And the angels ministered to Him.” – Mark 1:10-13

The first thing that happened after the prophetic proclamation is that the Spirit drove Jesus into the wilderness.  The declaration went forth, and then, the spiritual battle began.  This isn’t much different from what we experience in our lives today.  You are given a prophetic word, and once that word is spoken out into the atmosphere the devil and his demons attempt to steal, kill and destroy that destiny (John 10:10).  Just as Satan tempted Jesus in the wilderness, he is going to try and send spiritual warfare your way to prevent your words from manifesting.

It is during that time you have to put on your game face, as my friend Greg would say, and get to war and fight the battle with the words of your mouth through prayer.  You need to have an arsenal of Scripture stored up in you, like Jesus did, to be able to combat the devil and his plans against you.

Our prophetic words have prophetic destinies and produce much fruit when we experience the manifestation of these words.  Learning how to warfare and pray efficiently against these attacks could produce more prophetic words coming to pass.  The battle begins when the prophetic declaration is spoken out.  Vigilance in our prayer and study time will better equip us to see the manifestation of our words and combat the attacks of the enemy.

The battle begins when the declaration has been spoken.

Satan tempted Jesus.  He tested and tried Him, and he tests and tries us.  Jesus stood His ground and declared out the written word of God.  Each time the devil came, Jesus would quote Scripture to combat the spiritual warfare and speak and declare the truth.  Jesus spoke Scripture with power and authority.  We too, need to stand on the word of God and declare out Scriptures, but we can only declare out what we know.  You can’t put out what you haven’t taken in.  Reading the Bible, studying and memorizing Scripture is an important part of our daily spiritual walk.

Co-labor with the Holy Spirit to bring your prophetic words to pass (you can learn more about the Holy Spirit in Charisma’s Life in the Spirit series.)  He can guide you in your prayer time and assist you, (Rom. 8:26).

The prophetic declaration was spoken over Jesus, and He was tested and tried in the wilderness and then His ministry launched!  The first thing Jesus did when He came out of that experience was to cast out demons!

“In their synagogue there was a man with an unclean spirit. And he cried out, “Leave us alone! What do You have to do with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have You come to destroy us? I know who You are, the Holy One of God.” Jesus rebuked him, saying, “Be silent and come out of him!” When the unclean spirit had convulsed him and cried out with a loud voice, it came out of him.” – Mark 1:23-26

The testing and declaration led Him into His destiny!  So often we want the destiny without the ugly stuff that comes before our release.  Embrace the process!  Are you waiting to see your prophetic words come to manifestation in the natural?  Remember, through prayer and Bible study the very words that God has declared over you can come to pass.  Rise up and fight the enemy with the word of God and with your voice through prophetic prayer.

Releasing Love Costs Obedience

•October 13, 2017 • Leave a Comment

I always pray where to go on ministry trips.  Years ago the Holy Spirit had me start taking prophetic love tours.  During these tours, the Spirit of the Lord will instruct me where to go, when to turn, and which restaurants and hotels to stop at.  Often I have a general direction when I start as to where I will go and sometimes we get on the road and simply drive for 3-11 days at a time.

I have taken 11 prophetic love tours where we go and love on the homeless, prophesy on the streets and go to love on God’s servants.  I live in Michigan, and we have traveled as far west as Las Vegas and south to Louisiana.  We have done an East Coast tour and started out our first love tour in Wisconsin.  We have traveled far and wide to make the love of Jesus known.

Three years ago my ministry was forever changed as I traveled three short hours away and went to love on well known Christian businessmen and ministers.  As I went to this meeting to simply be love and release the prophetic over their individual lives, I came away feeling more love than I even poured out.  These men oozed out such a love of the Father that I went on a three-day solitude retreat with the Lord afterward in which I birthed my ministry of love.

Everything changed from that day forward.   I had already known the intimate love of the Father, but now I was going to make it a mission that everyone who came in contact with my ministry felt His abundant love.  I changed my ministry mission from healing and deliverance to releasing the love and power of God.  When we release the love and power of God, healing and deliverance will occur, so now I can release both missions into people’s lives.

I have just arrived back from my 11th love tour.  My assignment from the Holy Spirit was to go down and love on an Apostle in Maryland.  He wasn’t having any problems or feeling discouraged.  In the natural, nothing was going on that He needed an uplifting experience.  The Father simply wanted this man to be loved upon.  Everyone needs love.  Everyone needs to experience the vastness of God’s love.

Once again, like in my meeting above, God blew me away.  As I went there to be love, I felt like I got more love back.  Sometimes my saying is, “they out loved me.”  What I am trying to express is that even though I poured out every ounce of love I had, I felt so much more love back.  Seven days later I am still basking in His weighty presence and great love.

Obedience costs us something.  The obedience we had to offer God was our time, finances and family.  We had to give up our agenda for His instructions.  I love to preach.  The pulpit is where I come alive!  I love sharing the Gospel and releasing prophetically whatever the Spirit has for each meeting.  I love declaring and seeing the bondages break off of people from the platform.  However, God told me, this tour was about being love and that I could do more for His Kingdom by going here and just being love than I could if I was invited to speak at this event.  I can’t wait to get to heaven and see the Kingdom impact one simple act of being love and obedience brought forth.

Why don’t you take some time to pray and seek the Holy Spirit for your next instruction, whether big or small and be obedient to take that action to advance the Kingdom!

Goodness of God

•October 9, 2017 • Leave a Comment

The goodness of His love overwhelms me. It engulfs me. The weightiness of His presence consumes me. There is such peace in the atmosphere it is indescribable. The magnificence of His beauty is hard to take in. All alone in His presence is where I want to be. He is my treasure, my love, my priority. He alone is everything to me.

The goodness of God saturates the earth but seldom do we take time to feel it and experience it. We are caught up in life’s busyness.

The fragrance of His presence, I can smell the scent of His beauty! It is what I long for and that for which I thirst. He is so wonderful when we come into that place of rest. God longs for us to be with Him. Won’t you linger in His presence?

Our Father is an all-consuming fire. He can consume us with His fragrance, love, and fire when we allow ourselves to be removed from the world and put our attentions and affections on Him. He will give us so much more than we ask or fathom. God longs to be with you!

I am saturated with His love, and it feels good, the weightiness of His presence consumes me, it keeps coming. He desires us to walk in that weightiness so that people are healed, delivered and miracles are released by His glory. Why can’t we be like Peter who when His shadow feel on people they were miraculously released of their affliction? Why can’t we carry that same glory? We can!
Entering into the presence of God and allowing Him to linger upon us and not being in a hurry to get through our day will lead us into divine encounters. I want to go where He goes. I don’t want one moment to not have a prophetic or Kingdom aspect about it. Every appointment should be a prophetic appointment, but we have to be intentional. Intentional to rest and go into that secret place where He can lavish His great love upon you.

Can you give up your agenda for His? Can you linger in His lavish love? Can you get so full of Him that the scent of His fragrance oozes from your pours? Love on Him so that He can love on you, and in return, you have lots of His love to ooze on others.

It is your problem!

•August 22, 2017 • Leave a Comment

Racism issues have been ignored simply because “It is not my issue.” If it’s not our issue, then whose issue is it?

Racism is our problem. It is everyone’s problem when our brothers and sisters in Christ are being hurt, abused, rejected and offended.

Our brothers and sisters in Christ every day are being treated unfairly. It is not just a black-and-white issue. There are Hispanics, Cubans, Italians and people from other races being treated unfairly. Comments such as, “Why don’t you go back to your own country until you learn to speak English” or “You are taking away jobs from Americans” are signs that racism still exists.

Scripture clearly tells us to love and live in unity!

“Now I ask you, brothers, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that you all speak in agreement and that there be no divisions among you. But be perfectly joined together in the same mind and in the same judgment.” (1 Cor. 1:10, MEV).
“Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brothers to dwell together in unity!” (Ps. 133:1, MEV)
“If you fulfill the royal law according to the Scripture, ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself,’ you are doing well. But if you show partiality, you are committing sin and are convicted by the law as sinners” (James 2:8-9, MEV).
“Whoever says he is in the light but hates his brother is in darkness even until now. Whoever loves his brother lives in the light, and in him there is no cause for stumbling. But whoever hates his brother is in darkness, and walks in darkness, and does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes” (1 John 2:9-11, MEV).
“A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another, even as I have loved you, that you also love one another” (John 13:34, MEV).
“He has made from one blood every nation of men to live on the entire face of the earth, having appointed fixed times and the boundaries of their habitation” (Acts 17:26, MEV).
Ask yourself, “Am I willing to assist in the fight against racism or am I myself racist?”

One of the ways people have become racist is due to emotional wounds that have not been healed. Judgment and criticism build up and past hurts and wounds against an ethnicity have not been healed. People who have been hurt or ridiculed as a child, teenagers who have been abused by a gang or racial group different from theirs and women who have been sexually assaulted by a person of another race all need healing.

Racism partially exists because we have had conflict in our life with a person or group of another race. Instead of searching for the healing, we need to overcome those issues, we form bitterness, resentment and other unhealthy emotions towards people of different ethnicities.

Racism is a learned emotion. We have been taught racism by our cultural, economic status, region we live in, people of influence in our lives and our parents. However, just as generational curses can be broken off of our life, so can racism.

Our first step is to acknowledge when we have been racist and to repent and ask the Lord to forgive us and move forward in love. God is a God of love, and He has called us to love all people.

“So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them” (Gen. 1:27).

Individually, we can do this:

Change our behavior patterns and habits by not hanging onto our purses or belongings when we see a person of a different race come into our immediate area.
When in an elevator, instead of being uncomfortable when a person of another race enters, say hello and be nice.
When out in public, be friendly; don’t avoid a cashier line, salesperson or service personnel because they are of another race.
Embrace diversity. Embrace who they are as an individual and don’t group them into the same category as someone who you may have encountered challenges with.
Encourage unity by doing these things:

When such discussions come up, present yourself as an ambassador of Christ and make sure the words out of your mouth are edifying and not racist in nature.
Inform your children about diversity and multiculturalism, expose them to different ethnic groups and encourage them to be friends within their own race and other races.
Let them know that there are no limits on who they can be friends with, and model the example yourself for them.
Watch the words that come out of your mouth as a parent, leader in your community and follower in Christ.
Search yourself for any hurts or wounds and seek out healing.
Root out and gut out any and all racism that may be inside of you.
When we get to heaven; we will be no longer live in these fleshly suits. No race will be marked by outside pigments of our skin and the culture from which we came—no racism, all of us having changed into colorless.

In the Lord’s Prayer it says, “On Earth as it is in heaven.” Why don’t we do our part to help heaven manifest on Earth when it comes to the fight against racism?

The ugly element of racism

•August 18, 2017 • Leave a Comment

I wasn’t always passionate about racial issues. In fact for three years, I, being Caucasian, dated a full-blooded Navaho Indian and did not realize that I was racist against him.

There were signs that I was racist, but I did not truly see it as being racist, but simply as a couple of issues that bothered me. I remember we both would always correct people when they thought he was Mexican. It wasn’t done as informative to let the person know what he was. It was done more as, “Please don’t label him a Mexican.”

I remember being bothered by the fact that if we eventually got married and had children, that our children would be dark skinned, and I would have to explain to everyone their ethnicity. I didn’t realize until later in life I was racist against the very person I was in love with.

A few years ago I started an anti-racism corporation, it was then I discovered through talking to people that we all have pockets of racism in us that need to be rooted out. One of the issues we can have is that we don’t want our children to marry outside of their own race or even have cross racial friendships. When we are limiting our children to hang out with children like themselves, we have racism inside of us that needs to be removed. When we impose these thoughts and pass them along to our children we are creating racial tendencies and not extending love to all people, all nations, all cultures and all races.

I remember growing up hearing people say, “Why are those people coming to our country and becoming doctors?” I would hear people complaining that all the good surgeons were of another race. People would state it like it was a bad thing. The truth is they were racist and judgmental. Instead of being jealous and racist, we should be thanking them for the medical work they do to save our lives and fix what is wrong with our bodies.

Another common statement is, “If they are going to come to our country, then they should speak our language.” We should be thankful we live in a country that gives people freedom and is multicultural, instead of judging that they can’t speak our language.

I heard this again recently. There were people speaking Spanish in a store and when another customer walked out he looked at us and said, “They should speak English.” That is a racial remark that we need to help prevent and eliminate.

What about being a woman on an elevator and an African-American or Hispanic man steps on the elevator and you clutch your purse tighter? Do you clutch your purse tighter if a man of the same race as you would step on the elevator? We make racial acts without even knowing what we are doing.

We develop similar tendencies by being parked at a traffic light and a person of a different ethnicity is on the sidewalk and we reach over to lock our door. What about when you see a group of young number of a different race walking together in the city or mall; what are your reactions and thoughts that start plaguing your mind?

Racism can exist when you were treated badly by a person of another race. When a person is raped, stolen from, has a doctor or business transaction that goes bad, the next person they deal with from the same race could be treated unfairly. When we are offended by a person of another race, we could have difficulties entering into a relationship with a person of that same race.

What happens is that the person in that same race as the person that offended us could remind us of the bad experience we had by outward appearance, mannerism or language. When this happens, we could avoid a person of that race, because they remind us of the person, which is racism.

In order to be love and serve Christ and people we need to self-examine. Spend time in the presence of the Holy Spirit and ask Him to reveal and bring to your mind any racist tendencies you need to change. As these things are revealed, repentance is the first step we should take. Asking our heavenly Father to forgive us for these thoughts and actions.

As we recognize where we have racist areas in our lives, we can root them out and start being love to all people. Jesus loves all races. We have Jesus living inside of us; therefore, we are capable of the same love He gave. Will you put yourself aside and any past confrontations you had with a person of another race to truly be love?
