ABBA’S HAND-CHOSEN INFLUENCERS

This is what the LORD says to Cyrus, his anointed one,
  whose right hand he will empower.
Before him, mighty kings will be paralyzed with fear.
  Their fortress gates will be opened,
  never to shut again.

– Isaiah 45:1, NLT

Darnella Moore

  What an honor and privilege to be hand-picked and uniquely chosen by the Creator God to be His Royal Son or Daughter who has the power to influence the world for His glory!  I wake up in the morning with praise as the fruit of my lips thanking Abba daily for resting His powerful hand and Kingdom-royalty identity upon me.  Knowing that the Creator of heaven and earth has anointed and empowered me to impact the world with His love, grace and salvation is a very humbling, yet blessed assurance.  Exactly what our Lord spoke to Cyrus “back in the day”, He is speaking to you and I in present times.

The hand of God upon the life of a human being is exceptional!  It changes the way a person thinks, moves, lives, serves and operates within the earth.  It causes a glowing reflection to illuminate through our countenance, spirit and even upon our faces.  Sons and Daughters of God have no need to verbally explain who they are to anyone because everyone is immediately overtaken by our inner glow which reflects as outer brilliance when they encounter our presence!  When we proceed to touch or shake the hand of another, no matter if he/she is the President of the United States or a homeless person on the streets of New York City, with our God-anointed right hand, something great happens, a healing takes place, a life is renewed or a spirit is refreshed.  Our right hands, my Royal Siblings, are powerful as well as influential!

“The Lord replied, “If you return to me, I will restore you
so you can continue to serve me.  If you speak words that are worthy,
you will be my spokesman
You are to influence them: do not let them influence you!”
 
– Jeremiah 15:19, NLT

Our heavenly Father has a purpose for everything He does:  He had the needs of a spiritually-lost creation and this fallen world on His infinite mind when He anointed us to speak, to serve and to shift the atmosphere on His behalf.  He knew that in and of ourselves, we are weak, but with His right hand upon us, we are powerful!  Powerful enough to act and perform just like Him to influence all creation to return to Him as child and/or bow down to Him as Lord. 

My Royal Siblings, we have something meaningful to say as Abba’s bold Spokespersons.  Moreover, we have much work to do as His compassionate Influencers.  No matter what is happening around you, whether bad or good, don’t allow the enemy to shut you up or hold you down – that is merely the devil doing his (already defeated) job.  We, the Royal Sons and Daughters of God, must do our Kingdom job by being about our Heavenly Father’s business with a passion with the realization that we have the Answer for the world today.  And the world will get to know Him, the Answer, because of our influence!

Now, who shall we speak to and influence for our Lord today?  Selah!

In His Love,
Your Royal Sister Darnella

Make It Happen!

My Dearest Royal Readers:

Our lives are truly in the Master’s very capable hands as Sons and Daughters, but our destinies are in our own hands. Abba God has provided us with the necessary resources, naturally and spiritually, including a continual flow of His guidance to lead us, but it is up to us to make things happen in our lives. We must put His love, His Word and His power to work! And when we do, we’ll begin to experience the greatest level of personal satisfaction and achievement in our lives.

Each of us has been given a God-given ordained assignment to fulfill in the earth. What is your’s? If you’re challenged at answering this question, you need to enter into your secret place with God and have a one-on-one talk with Him. He is actually waiting to have this profound conversation with you because He wants to see you accomplish greatness for His glory as well as your benefit. On the other hand, you may know what your unique assignment is, but what are you doing about it? Are you obeying God’s instructions that will guide you to fulfillment or are you sitting idly around waiting for a miracle? Whatever situation you find yourself in with respect to doing what you were born and born-again to do, just get to stepping towards it! Lets make it happen!

My life has not been the same since I got serious about my walk with God as His Daughter and about my God-ordained purpose as His servant. I have so much more joy, peace, and of course, love flowing all around me since I decided to make Jesus and my purpose my choice! Giving God the glory, I’m glad to hear that others are being blessed as a result of my obedience too. I find myself wondering now, “why in the world didn’t I began fulfilling my purpose a long time ago?” I’m having a blast making it happen in the area of heart matters for God, myself and others.

Stand up my Royal Siblings and begin moving towards your destiny. Yesterday is gone and tomorrow is not guaranteed. You and I only have today and the support of one another to make it happen!

I love and am praying for you and your families!

Always, Your Sister
Darnella

Radio Show: “Loving Mentorship”

On Saturday of Thanksgiving Weekend, I was so honored and privileged to have Prophet Marquez Griffin, Founder of Kingdom Mentorship (www.kingdommentorship.organd Spiritual Son of Dr. Mike Murdock of The Wisdom Center (www.wisdomonline.com) located in Ft. Worth, TX. It was a powerful move of our God!

Prophet Marquez shared with the audience and I his powerful testimony that includes a worldly lifestyle, childhood sexual abuse, rising rap star artist, and so much more. Through it all, God “arrested” him, cleaned his life up, filled him with the Holy Spirit, and called him into the prophetic ministry to help others receive salvation and Kingdom mentorship. He has been running and serving Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior ever since!

In addition to his heartwrenching, yet emotionally moving, testimony, Prophet Marquez and I discussed the value and importance of Sons and Daughters of God having spiritual Mentors in their lives as well as how valuable good mentorship can be to one’s natural and spiritual walks.

Click here to listen to this 45-minute (plus, 15 minutes of after show discussion) interview with Prophet Marquez Griffin and be blessed:

America, It’s Time To Love!

Evangelist DarnellaAmerica – to include whites and blacks, rich and poor, Jews, Gentiles, Muslims, Buddhists and Atheists, Republicans and Democrats, our Creator God has a direct message for you: It’s time to stop hating, fighting and demeaning one another. It’s time to love!

“How wonderful it is, how pleasant, when brothers live together in harmony!” (Proverbs 133:1)

As an African-American, Christian, single Mother who did not hesitate to exercise my right to vote (that ironically was achieved during my birth year through the Civil Rights Voting Act) in the mid-term elections with my 11-year-old son beside me, I am appalled and pained by the barbaric way we treat one another during election season. The electoral season of any nation that has the privilege to have one should be a season approached and replete with Godly love, human dignity and familial unity. Instead, it has become the extreme opposite for our country—the land of the free, the home of the brave—as a result of extremist ideologies and differing solutions.  In God’s sight, there is no left or right as we witness through the life of Jesus Christ who ate with and served the righteous and sinner, as well as the rich and poor alike. In fact, God hates sin whether it’s dressed up as self-righteousness (as the Republican right can sometimes appear) or a total lack thereof (as the Democratic left can sometimes appear). He, our heavenly Father, loves us as sinners saved by grace in spite of our shortcomings. Shouldn’t we as His created ones made in His image and likeness at least do the same?

“Rulers lead with my help, and nobles make righteous judgments.” (Proverbs 8:16)

From the White House, to the Senate, House of Representatives, local Government and community, all of us as leaders must seek out the wisdom of God in order to make good decisions for our nation. We may mean well or think we know what is best as individual citizens, but if we prayerfully submit our thoughts to the One Who already knows them, we just may find that we’re completely clueless after all. Every President we’ve elected, including our current President Barak Obama, has surrounded himself with sound spiritual leadership to gain wise spiritual counsel realizing that without the help of our Almighty God, they’d fail to make America a home of love, power and prosperity.

“Godliness makes a nation great, but sin is a disgrace to any people.” (Proverbs 14:34) “Good planning and hard work lead to prosperity, but hasty shortcuts lead to poverty.” (Proverbs 21:5)

I love, honor and respect each and every President, Republican or Democrat,  past and current, who laid down his life along with his family, answered the call and accepted the challenge to lead our nation towards greatness in his own way. Their willingness to do so in and of itself proves that they have a heart of love for our nation. Join me in praying for, as opposed to complaining about, our President and other elected officials that God will turn their hearts towards wise decision-making for the best interest of our country. As importantly, let us treat each other with love, kindness, respect and grace in all that we do even if we don’t agree on how to do it.

May God bless America. But my fellow Americans, may we in turn also bless God. America, there is a time and season for all things… It’s time to love!

In His Love & Unity,
Your Fellow Citizen Darnella Moore

My Assignment at IMSS’ Tea Social

On last Saturday, I was so very honored and abundantly blessed to attend as well as minister the anointing consecration of the 10 Founding Members of In My Sister’s Shadow, Inc. at their classy Tea Social (and first anniversary celebration) held at the Argyle Country Club in Silver Spring, MD. My Royal Soror of The Daughters of Christ Sorority, Prophetess Emani C. White, is the Founder of this awesome vision and mission to minister to and meet the needs of hurting women. I am so very proud of her!

Throughout the Tea Social, I met and fellowshipped with women who were hurting or had experienced hurt in a myriad of ways in their lives. Moreover, by happenstance (or should I say God’s positioning), I was honored to be seated directly next to the two women from a local homeless shelter that IMSS had handpicked to bless with complimentary tickets along with brand new clothing, accessories, hairstyles, nails and even a hotel stay the night before the event! Isn’t God awesome?

He heals and blesses us so that we in turn can heal and bless others! 

Passionately, yet candidly, each of them shared their personal stories of drug use, domestic violence and so much more with myself as well as others seated at our table. I was brought to tears not only due to feeling their hurt and pain (remember, when one hurts, we all hurt), but also due to experiencing their “right now” blessings through the women (IMSS Diamonds–as the members are called) of this great organization who’d themselves at one point in their own lives faced similarly tragic experiences.

By the time we arrived at my point of ministry in the service — The anointing and consecretation of IMSS Founding Members, including the Founder and her Husband, James White, I was so filled up with God’s Love and power that all I could sing out upon approaching the podium was “Yes, Yes, Lord; yes to Your will, yes to Your way; God whatever you ask me to do, my soul says Yes Lord!”  The anointing service was truly a powerful move of God Who gets all the glory from it. The Lord was reminding me and instructing others to obey His leadership and service calls! This was the opening of the Anointing Ceremony. As I anointed and prophetically spoke a Word into the lives of each IMSS Diamond, the Holy Spirit re-anointed me as His servant Daughter.

You see, when we yield and allow our humble selves to be used by God to touch the lives of others, our anointed and Loving touch will not only bless them, but bless us too.

My Royal Soror Sharon D. Owens, as Director of IMSS Events, did such a fabulous job of planning such a classy event of women coming together in their Sunday’s best, hats and gloves for a time of tea and fellowship. More importantly, our heavenly Father performed an abundance of miracles of healing, restoration, renewal and exhortation within each and every one of us in attendance to recharge our spirit of generous service to those less fortunate or presently hurting more than we are.

Thank you my Kingdom Brother Jimmy White along with his beautiful wife, Royal Soror Emani, as well as the entire In My Sister’s Shadow family for including me in your awesome event and in your lives. I am so proud to be a IMSS Diamond (Member) myself and encourage all of my Royal Sorors to join me in support of this community serving vision.

Make a decision today to reach out and touch someone with God’s Love and your humble service. You’ll be so blessed and glad that you did!

My Passion, My Purpose

Isaiah 61:1-3
1
 The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is upon me,
  for the LORD has anointed me
  to bring good news to the poor.
He has sent me to comfort the brokenhearted
  and to proclaim that captives will be released
  and prisoners will be freed.*
2 He has sent me to tell those who mourn
  that the time of the LORD’s favor has come,*
  and with it, the day of God’s anger against their enemies.
3 To all who mourn in Israel,*
  he will give a crown of beauty for ashes,
a joyous blessing instead of mourning,
  festive praise instead of despair.
In their righteousness, they will be like great oaks
  that the LORD has planted for his own glory.

After announcing on Facebook and Twitter my departure from my secular job on Monday and arrival to more time to pursue my passion and purpose of Loving and blessing God’s people as The Daughter of Christ & His Love Evangelist, I received an outpouring of Love, support and acknowledgements from so many of you–my Royal Siblings. Even today as I continue to receive and read the comments from you, I remain moved to tears. 

Thank you all so much for supporting me in ministry since I began walking as The Daughter of Christ. Thank you for believing in my passioned purpose to fill the world with His Love.

I’m taking some time to decompress, repair, refill, renew and recharge. Once I’m refueled with His power that I’ll need at this next level of ministry, watch out, because I’m coming out with everything in me to fulfill all the divine assignments God has entrusted unto me to unify and prepare the world for His soon return.

I Love you, my Kingdom Family, and will be here whenever you need me. Feel free to e-mail me at thedaughterofchrist@gmail.com anytime.

In His Love, Power & Favor,

Weeping May Endure For A Night…

A couple of weeks ago, one of my (blood) sisters were visiting our home in Brooklyn, NY to celebrate her birthday when she called me with the most horrific news that instaneously turned her trip from being a joyous occasion to a saddened one: A friend of mine had lost his 25-year-old son to gun violence leaving a 2-year-old daughter behind and one on the way in a few months. I was absolutely devasted!

I felt the pain of not only my friend (that I haven’t seen since moving away from home after college), but as a parent with two children of my own. How was my friend getting through this devastating loss of a child? At that moment, I just simply could not imagine. It made me love and appreciate all over again the two children that God has temporarily loaned to me. On the contrary, it also made me hate and abhor the gun violence our world is experiencing especially amongst the (my) African-American community’s males. As I spoke to my sister over the telephone, I was thinking, yet another family and community grieving the loss of a son gone too soon; yet another mother’s, father’s, sister’s, brother’s heart broken into pieces. My question still lingers… Why? Will somebody please tell me why?

My family and I have personally endured the grief of loosing young loved ones to gun violence. Sadly, there are few African-American families whom have not been touched (or at least know someone in their midst who have been touched) by this cruel social ill. I’ll never forget viewing my young cousins’ lifeless bodies (three to be exact–two of which were brothers killed a few years apart) in a still casket and thinking, “we were supposed to grow old together.” Anytime I hear of death by gun violence, it resurfaces my own personal painful experience all over again causing me to do what I did back then: Run into the arms of my Jesus and lay my grieving weights completely on Him!

Thank God for His Word that I read and embraced as if my life depended upon it during every grieving season: Weeping may endure for a night, BUT JOY cometh in the morning! Jeremiah 31:13 provides a promise from our heavenly Father, I will turn their mourning into joy. I thanked God for all of my friends who surrounded themselves around my family and I during our experiences of grief from death which provided us much strength. But nobody’s words (as nice as they were) could provide me the healing comfort and strength that God’s Word was able to. Through grief, I’ve learned to trust in Jesus and depend on Him more than I had before.

My thoughts are now particularly towards the mother who is now faced to raise children as single-mother without their dad. As a single mother myself, I understand clearly the challenging road that lies ahead for her. But praise God that as a Daughter of the ultimate Father, I also know without a shadow of a doubt, that by allowing her God to carry, lead and guide her, she will mother victoriously and her daughters will rise up through life successfully.

This incident has emblazened my heartfelt passion for the community service initiative that I’ve envisioned to launch, my Father Lift Her program through The Daughters of Christ, Inc., that will serve and support single mothers and her children.  It also brought back to my remembrance the police officer who was killed in a car accident in Montgomery County MD this year leaving a widow, a child and expectant triplets on the way. When I read this story, my heart broke, but I allowed it to move me into action to help this new single mom once my program is up and running as well. There are so many single mothers who need the love of a judgeless community and the compassion of a service-oriented one as well. I personally am moved into action to serve, to heal, and to love. Will you join me?

If you have recently suffered a loss and/or are experiencing grief at this time, look up, see God and allow Him to reach for you to carry and comfort you in His loving arms. Psalm 31 is my favorite to read at a time like this. I pray that you’ll find it comforting as well. You will continue to have your moments of crying or shouts of anger–that is human and a normal reaction to loss. But I also know from personal experience, that although you will never forget your loved one, you will rise to live, to love, and to leap again towards your unique purpose in life that brings you joy.

The Lord is my strength and shield. I trust him with all my heart. He helps me, and my heart is filled with joy. I burst out in songs of thanksgiving. The Lord gives his people strength. He is a safe fortress for this anointed king. Save your people! Bless Israel, your special possession. Lead them like a shepherd, and carry them in your arms forever. (Psalm 28:7-9)

I dedicate this blog posting to the entire Maxey family–stand strong and see the salvation of our Lord!

I Love you my Royal Family and am praying diligently for you and your’s.

Always, Your Sister Darnella
The Daughter of Christ 

Homeless, But Not Helpless

In my immature and younger days, I used to pray for predominantly materials things such as more money, a big house, a fancy car, a tall, dark and handsome man to call my own, and the insignificant list goes on and on and on and on. Society insinuates these things are the way to love and happiness. Or better yet, these items could position me to the “successful” social status. But one day after having had a very personal and real encounter with God which caused me to totally yield myself to Him, as well as to eagerly give myself away to others, I realized immediately that the only route to genuine love and true happiness was in the God Who created me. Now don’t get me wrong, all those aforementioned temporary items are nice and okay to have, but they are not my all and all. He, my heavenly Father, Lord and Savior is!

This past Sunday, I was so honored and blessed to have been invited as Guest Speaker at a breakfast serving to the homeless at the First Seventh Day Adventist Church of Washington, DC (thank you my Royal Family at this part of Zion for extending me such a warm and welcoming invitation). I was tremendously humbled and abundantly blessed. Since walking in ministry as His Evangelist since 2002, this was by far the most gratifying and life-changing Kingdom assignment that I’ve ever fulfilled. Breaking bread (both naturally and spiritually) with brothers and sisters who were temporarily experiencing probably the lowest points ever in their lives made me realize not only how truly blessed I am, but how good and compassionate our Father God is. In fact, it was the exact opposite of the speaking engagement I’d fulfilled just a day before–a women’s fellowship and pool party at a beautiful home on five acres of land with luxurious landscaping. Yes, the power of God moved at this assignment tremendously as well: Women received their healing as well as spiritually birthed out their passionate purposes to leave this beautiful home changed forever (myself included).

As the Holy Spirit spoke a Word of exhortation and encouragement through me to the homeless, there was not one disengaging eye or non-praiser in the house of the Lord: Everyone was praising and worshipping God along with me in the midst of their storms. I candidly shared and summed up my personal testimony by letting them know that I too had experienced having much as well as loosing everything. I stated to them, “your value isn’t determined by your current temporary circumstances, but by your position in the Kingdom of God through Jesus Christ the Lord. Trusting, believing and depending on Him can take you from the pit to the palace. You are not here to stay, but are simply passing through to gain a testimony that will bring God glory in the earth.” The anointing of God the Holy Spirit filled the room and all of us began praising God in spite of our reason for being there. I’ve unfortunately seen people with much refuse to praise God in the midst of service, but I was now witnessing those with nothing doing so. I was in complete awe! The miraculous healing virtue and saving grace of Jesus Christ reigned in the room amongst God’s people–black and white, rich and poor.

After speaking, as I normally do with Godly Love being my specialization, I traveled throughout the room embracing those who allowed me to do so. As I hugged each one, I could feel their burdens being lifted and their hearts filling with joy for the first in a long time. Tears were streaming down my face as God’s love flowing through me to them, and reciprocally, from them to me was doing so like a mighty rushing wind. To walk in the love and compassion of my Savior was at the moment the greatest gift I’d ever received or given. I didn’t want to stop, nor did I want to leave.

I took my seat so emotionally and spiritually filled up, all I could do was pray a prayer of thanksgiving to my God for choosing and using me for this particular and humbling assignment. My honor came from being in their midst, not I being in their’s.

Who can be compared with the Lord our God, who is enthroned on high? He stoops to look down on heaven and on earth. He lifts the poor from the dust and the needy from the garbage dump. He sets them among princes, even the princes of his own people! (Psalm 113:5-8)

My personal prayer to my Lord is that no matter how high he takes me in this life or how materially blessed I become, keep me a humbled, loving and giving person: May I always remember where I came from and help someone else to reach not merely where I am, but where I’m yet still going.

To all of my brothers and sisters in the world who are currently experiencing hardtimes, pains and disappointments, I say to you, hold on, your help is not on the way, but available to you right now through Jesus Christ who died and rose again just for you and I. Trouble doesn’t last always; everything will be all right!

Thank you First Seventh Day Adventist Church of Washington, DC (particularly Elder Rufus Simpkins) and Shekinah Glory Prayer Circle (Founder, Sharon D. Owens) for blessing me with the greatest and most rewarding speaking engagement or Kingdom assignment I’ve ever done.

Thank you heavenly Father for using me to fulfill it. Continue to wash and purify me so that I can be used by You Lord even the more not for fame or fortune, but for Your glory! As my Senior Pastor & Apostle Mom, Dr. Betty P. Peebles, often quotes and reminds her children at Jericho City of Praise, I am performing for an audience of one–my God–the One in Whom I trust, lean and depend on at all times!

In His Love,
Your Sister Darnella
