Light for Your Path The Ministry of Apostle Jacquie Hadnot A Celebration Of Women Women & Sisterhood

Thy Word is lamp unto my feet and a light unto my path. Psalm 119:105


Sharing the Gospel through this magazine

O God, You are my God; I shall seek You earnestly; My soul thirsts for You, my flesh yearns for You, In a dry and weary land where there is no water. Thus I have seen You in the sanctuary, To see Your power and Your glory. Because Your loving kindness is better than life, My lips will praise You. So I will bless You as long as I live; I will lift up my hands in Your name. My soul is satisfied as with marrow and fatness, And my mouth offers praises with joyful lips. When I remember You on my bed, I meditate on You in the night watches, For You have been my help. Psalm 63:1-6

What is Vision & Purpose? What is true vision? What is true vision? True vision is not something that you invent with the human mind. True vision is about the desire that God imparts into you. Vision is about your contribution on earth to the Kingdom of God.

Discovering something you can put your whole self into will fill your life with new hope and purpose. It will give you a reason for living. Dr. Myles Monroe

Definition of Purpose Vision is a conception that is inspired by God in the heart of a human. The gift of vision is greater than the gift of sight. Sight is a function of the eyes, but vision is a function of the heart. The power of vision is that your future is not just ahead of you--it also lies within you. Dr. Myles Monroe

Definition of Vision 1. eyesight: the ability to see 2. mental picture: an image or concept in the imagination visions of power and wealth 3. parapsychology something seen in dream or trance: an image or series of images seen in a dream or trance, often interpreted as having religious, revelatory, or prophetic significance 4. far-sightedness: the ability to anticipate possible future events and developments somebody or something beautiful: a beautiful or pleasing sight

What is PURPOSE? What is PURPOSE? Purpose is when you know and understand what God created you to accomplish on this earth. What is VISION? Vision is when you can see the purpose in your mind by FAITH & begin to dream it. You need to act with purpose.

1. reason for existence: the reason for which something exists or for which it has been done or made 2. desired effect: the goal or intended outcome of something 3. determination: the desire or the resolve necessary to accomplish a goal set something as goal: to intend or determine to do something

The Divine Push!! Are you about to give birth to your destiny? Do you feel a tugging in your spiritual belly? Don't allow the enemy to distract you during this labor season. You are giving birth to a vision that will bless the nations. Your vision is more powerful than anything you could possibly imagine because it is a God given vision. It is a God positioned destiny that no one can abort except you. The human mind could not conceive such an awesome destiny for you. Your vision will determine how you conduct the rest of your life. From this moment on determine to do things based on your purpose. It is a healthy baby. So relax and get ready for the DIVINE PUSH.

Naked, Broken and Unashamed Freedom from the chains of bondage of the enemy When the Lord spoke these three words “Naked, Broken and Unashamed” I did not realize the full extent of His message. I knew that it had to do with PWP, but I did not realize the impact it would have on the lives of the people we would reach with this message. The necessity to look at each word carries within it a depth of our freedom found only in Him. “Whom the Son sets free is free indeed.” True freedom is attached to our relationship with the Almighty. A shallow relationship will not produce real freedom. A degree of freedom will come, but it will not be to the depth that He desires for us. Freedom does carry a price and Jesus paid the price on the cross. Nevertheless, it is up to us to stay free. That means staying in a place with Him, in Him and through Him that keeps us aware of the entrapments of the enemy. The condemnation that the enemy tries to enslave us with is a tool that he (the enemy) has mastered. He will use condemnation as a swordsman wields a sword. He will use it to cut at the very fiber of our core. We must recognize the enemy and his deceptive devices if we are to remain in a place of nakedness, brokenness and not be ashamed of our past. Our past is “the past” and it should not to be used against us. Moreover, it should not entrap or bind us to the spirit of shame. The spirit of shame in connected to many other spirits that can attach themselves because we have opened the door that allows them access. Mistakes from our past will harbor these spirits and render us ineffective for the Kingdom of God. The Word of God says, “No weapon formed against us shall prosper.” He did not say it would not form, He said it would not prosper. This means that every trip, trap or snare that the enemy sets against us we must pull down. We must pull down the traps and snares with the Word of God. We must also know each weapon in our arsenal based on Ephesians chapter six and how to effectively use them. The Lord spoke Naked, Broken and Unashamed.

NAKED means:  having no clothing on any part of the body  Lacking covering: lacking the usual covering or protection  without embellishment the naked truth Unarmed: unarmed and defenseless  Devoid of something; naked of all pretensions to grandeur When we are naked before the Lord:  We lack the usual covering or protection from the doctrines or rudiments of this world. Doctrines tend to hide our “messy behavior.”  We lack the religious ideas that have kept us bound.  Our past sins are displayed openly and God can deal with them.  We are without the usual embellishments of this world’s system and therefore, He sees us as we really are. Our gifts, talents, skills, outward beauty are embellishments.  We are unarmed and defenseless when we stand in his presence and face the enemy within us.  We are naked of all pretensions to grandeur that come with our titles, positions, social or economic status. We are in a position where we are stripped us of everything we think we are. God wants to use us, but we must come to Him humble. All of our preconceived ideas about who we are, what we are and where we are, are stripped away. Being naked before Him means that all of the things we hold dear are stripped away. Sin cannot enter into His presence. The preconceived plans of man cannot stand before the matchless One; they have to be stripped away. When we are stripped of everything, we will draw closer to Him because everything is out of the way. All obstacles and barriers are removed. God will strip us of materials things, money, property, possessions, people, status and position in order to bring us face to face with ourselves, wretched and undone. Once we are stripped of the things that define us, God can deal with us unhindered by our trappings and delusions of grandeur. Titles, positions and earthly

10


“power” are hindering God’s move in us, through us and for us. Now that all barriers are stripped away - it is time to come face to face with SELF. The worst thing we can do to ourselves is turn away once the stripping process starts. When we run from God, we are allowing the enemy full access to us and our destiny. Instead of birthing ministry, we wind up making ministry. Instead of bringing forth that which is healthy and prosperous in the eyes of God, we bring forth a “bastard” child that does not carry the seed of the El Shaddai - God Almighty. The thing that we birth cannot be blessed and prosper because it does not belong to Jehovah Rohi, the Lord our Shepherd. He cannot lead and guide a child that belongs to the enemy. The process of stripping MUST be carried out and we MUST go through it like the men and women of God that we are called to be. We MUST stand in the midst of the stripping with our spiritual heads held high. We know that His love has brought us to this point. We MUST stand in the midst of the stripping with the heartfelt knowledge that it is for our good and His glory. Without complaining and murmuring, we press on to the mark of His High calling for our lives. We press on knowing that the enemy is already defeated and the Lord’s goal for us is ultimate victory. Again, no weapon formed against us will prosper. It does not matter what it looks like, what matters is what He looks like. Naked before Him is a position of new beginnings for us. It is a position that at some point each of us that desires to be with Him MUST take. BROKEN means:  no longer whole: in two or more pieces, e.g. after having been dropped or struck with something hard  out of order: no longer in working condition  weakened: physically weakened  destroyed by adversity: destroyed or badly hurt by grief or misfortune  incomplete: lacking parts necessary to be complete  disorganized: lacking order or harmony Once the Lord has stripped us of the things we hold dear, He then begins a breaking process. The breaking process is painful and often this is the point where many of us will begin to run, hide, deny or justify. Pride is a key factor in hindering the breaking process. Pride wants to hide from the breaking; it seeks to conceal that which God is exposing. Pride hinders the

process because the hidden things are elements that feed our delusions of grandeur. Pride is rooted and grounded in the soil of its father the devil and MUST be uprooted before any further breaking can take place. When God begins to break things off this means, that pride is no longer whole. It is in two or more pieces because the hand of God has struck it. Pride is instrumental in keeping us from the fullness of God. I believe that is why He deals with pride first. God strikes at the very heart of pride and the shattered pieces of our pride must be removed; there can be no residue. If residue is left, it can be replanted in our hearts by the enemy. We must die to pride, selfish ambitions and other elements that fuel the burning stench of pride. BROKEN means that our way of doing things is not in proper working condition and everything we touch turns to mud. Again, we are trying to make things happen or force them to happen. We wind up spinning our wheels and getting nowhere fast. God must break us from this pattern if we are to move forward. God uses our brokenness to weaken us. Once we are stripped of our self-will, selfish ambitions, selfish desires or self-centeredness - He can strengthen us with His strength. When we fight against the tide for too long we become tired and give up. God will allow us to fight against the spiritual elements in order to weaken us and get our attention. He will allow the enemy to come against us in order to weaken our spiritual resistance and give way to a new place in Him. Another part of the process is the destruction of pride, arrogance, fear, and doubt through adversity. God will use adversity to shake us up. God will also allow our SELF LIFE ISSUES to be destroyed by grief or misfortune. Once He has crippled the bondages of the enemy He can get our attention. This is a painful process because usually we cannot understand how God could allow such things to happen to us. Self-justification will rise during the process and since it is an element of pride, it too must be destroyed. During the breaking process, many areas of our lives will appear to be lacking the parts necessary to be complete. Our ministries, marriages, relationships and careers will lack the parts needed to be whole or complete. God will allow a scattering to occur because lack is not His Will for us. No matter how hard you try

11


to pull it together, nothing works out the way you envisioned. If left unchecked, you will have incomplete projects, jobs or relationships scattered everywhere. Finally, an essential part of the breaking process is the lack of order or harmony in your life. Everything you touch seems covered in chaos, drama or problems. When you are out of alignment with the ONE who positions us, disharmony or dis-ease occurs. It is part of the process to open the eyes and ears of the dis-eased heart. God takes us on this journey because He:  Loves us  Wants to use us  Wants the best for us  Desires to see us set free and delivered from the hand of enemy A broken spirit and a contrite heart, to these He will draw near. “The Lord is close to those who are of a broken heart and saves such as are crushed with sorrow for sin and are humbly and thoroughly penitent.” (Psalm 34:18 AMP). God desires to draw near but He will not draw near to the stench of unrepentant flesh. He desires to draw near to the vessel where flesh (selfish-desires) has been sacrificed on the altar. The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit: a broken and a contrite heart, O God, thou wilt not despise (Psalm 51:17 KJV). We must be dead men walking, dead to the traps, snares and tricks of the enemy. This means that God in His infinite wisdom has brought us through a crushing process in order to mend and make us whole. He places a refiner’s fire before us to burn up all the fragments and debris. He allows the fire to burn often at spiritual temperatures that exceed the lava of a volcano. “But who can endure the day of His coming? And who can stand when He appears? For He is like a refiner’s fire and like fullers’ soap. “He will sit as a smelter and purifier of silver, and He will purify the sons of Levi and refine them like gold and silver, so that they may present to the LORD offerings in righteousness (Malachi 3:2-3). Once we are in the refiner’s fire the real testing comes. The testing is for our faith in Christ Jesus. The testing comes to strengthen our faith and trust in the Lord. We find ourselves in broken pieces waiting for the day to come when the Lord will restore us. The trials come to purify us of pride, fear, doubt, unbelief, negativity and the like. That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ (1Peter 1:7).

We have walked out a process of:  Being naked before the Lord  Being broken of everything we thought we were, everything we held on so dearly to, and broken of pride and it’s fruits. You ask, what now Lord? You have stripped me naked; you have broken me down to the core. What now, Lord? Now it is time for the Lord to begin the healing process. The healing process occurs because He is a repairer of the breaches in our lives and a restorer of the paths in which we walk. To HEAL means:  to restore a person, body part, or injury to health  be repaired naturally: to be repaired and restored naturally  to recover spiritually or emotionally:  to get rid of a wrong, evil, or painful affliction  by the formation of scar tissue God’s healing process is a procedure that heals, mends and restores us to full spiritual health and vitality through the following:  He restores us to a spiritually healthy place in Him. Our spiritual eyes and ears are attentive to His voice.  He repairs and restores the dry places in our lives.  We recover spiritually & emotionally by His love & grace.  The formation of spiritual scar tissue occurs to protect the place where God has cut away the infected areas. This also gets rid of any wrong, evil, or painful afflictions that might try to reoccur during our healing process. Once the healing process is complete, He can then begin to reshape us into His image, placing His heart, Mind and Spirit within us. I call this a spiritual transplant. He replaces our old DNA with His DNA. I call it the DIVINE NATURE OF THE ALMIGHTY and it now flows through our veins. It changes the very fiber of who we are. It redirects our thoughts, will and emotions into a path of His righteousness, purpose and plans. We now operate under the power or DNA of our creator. His divine nature brings us closer to His manifested presence. His divine nature flows through us and as a result, we are connected to the life source of the vine.

12


We have endured a spiritual transplant that has changed the countenance of our spiritual and earthly being. Nothing we endeavor from this point on will have any resemblance of the way in which we use to do things. We will consult Him on all things, we will trust Him in all things, and we will believe Him for all things. His DNA is the essence of our lives and He is the source of our strength. We are now at a place in Him where we can help others come through the process. We are in a place in Him that says, I am healed, set free and delivered and I can now go back and help others still in the war, still in the fire, still in the grips of the enemy. I am now in a place where my spiritual strength is renewed and I can tell others what I went through. I go through taking no praise, glory or honor for myself. I can be a light for others to see. I am now a living sacrifice, which is holy and acceptable to God. I am now ready to tell others what I endured for the cause of Christ and the freedom of HIS people. I can tell others:  I was once naked but now I am clothed in His righteousness  I was once broken, but now I am healed in Jesus Name.  I was once ashamed of the chains that had me bound, but now I am unashamed ready to tell the world that I am an over comer by the BLOOD OF THE LAMB and by the words of THIS TESTIMONY - MY TESTIMONY and you too can be FREE.  We can do all things through Christ Jesus that strengthens us.

Are You Ready to Accept God’s Gift of Salvation? If you truly believe the message of the Roman Road, and want to accept God’s gift of salvation right now, it's a matter of repenting of your sins and turning the rest of your life over to Jesus Christ. Again, this is not a ritual based on any specific words or prayers, but rather, a willful decision and a sincere step of faith. “Father, I know that I have broken your laws and my sins have separated me from you. I am truly sorry, and now I want to turn away from my past sinful life toward you. Please forgive me, and help me avoid sinning again. I believe that your son, Jesus Christ died for my sins, was resurrected from the dead, is alive, and hears my prayer. I invite Jesus to become the Lord of my life, to rule and reign in my heart from this day forward. Please send your Holy Spirit to help me obey You, and to do Your will for the rest of my life. In Jesus' name I pray, Amen.” "Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins; and you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit." (Acts 2:38) If you decided to receive Jesus today, welcome to God's family. Now, as a way to grow closer to Him, the Bible tells us to follow up on our commitment.  Get baptized as commanded by Christ.  Tell someone else about your new faith in Christ.  Spend time with God each day. It does not have to be a long period of time. Just develop the daily habit of praying to Him and reading His Word. Ask God to increase your faith and your understanding of the Bible.  Seek fellowship with other followers of Jesus. Develop a group of believing friends to answer your questions and support you.  Find a local church where you can worship God.

Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty. 2 Corinthians 3:17 STAY FREE SO GOD CAN PROSPER YOU! 13

The Mantle of Prayer Dr. Jacquie Hadnot

Prayer is not something that you do, prayer is the place you should live. Prayer is not a Sunday morning only event. Prayer is a lifestyle. Prayer is not an tool you use when you want something from the HAND OF GOD. Prayer is the place you press into to get to the heart of God. Prayer is our direct line with heaven. Prayer is communion with God. God desires to take our prayer lives to another dimension, individually and corporately. Prayer is the key to God moving in the lives of the people. The lord is good to those who seek him diligently and he withholds nothing good from them and prayer is the key is getting to the very heart of God. This is the season for much prayer for it is a season of much warfare. God will cover us in all things and through all things, but we must come to Him in prayer and with a heart of faith. Because there is great warfare in the spiritual realm, we need to adjust ourselves and position our spirits in prayer and fasting.1 This is a real war and people must stop taking the enemy and his wiles and traps as if it is a joke. We must bind the strongman in order to have the victory. The church has come to a comfortable zone because it does not understand its role in the world, we were saved to play an important role of setting the captives free, becoming the light in darkness, forsaking evil ways that network Satan to our families. Instead of being the light, the church is hiding the light. That is why God has placed what he is calling his "elite remnant" together to advance the kingdom and not be afraid of the status quo. The new generation that is coming forward, is coming with revelation, power, and non compromising men and women, we need to look unto the author and finisher of our faith, we are the remnant that should amend, rectify, bring back the church to its true functioning authority, where God healed by Paul’s shadow, demons chased without struggling, may God restore us and anoint us for this reason and purpose. The demonstration of God's power is what is needed and prayer is the key to tap into the source of all power.1 It only takes a remnant to change a nation. We are called to be agents of change. And as agents of change it is time to take on the mantle of prayer and begin to pull down strongholds that have held our people captive for far too long. (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; 2Co 10:4-5 Pray with power, pray in faith, pray effectively. Because prayer will unlock God’s purpose and plans for the endtimes church. Without effective prayer the church will be lost and walking in darkness. Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. Phil 4:16

Journey Through the Names of God Dr. Jacquie Hadnot

Welcome to It’s All in Your Name: Loving God through His Names. The names of God used in the Bible act as a roadmap for learning about the character of God. Since the Bible is God’s Word to us, the names He chooses in scripture are meant to reveal His true nature to us.

Names of God El-Shaddai - Almighty God

Jesus presents himself as the I AM when

Jehovah Jireh - The Lord will provide

challenged by religious leaders. The I AM

Elohay Kedem - God of the Beginning

means His Is everything. Jesus came to reveal the God of the Bible and God has revealed Himself in His book. As you learn the names of God you will begin to discover His attributes such as: Wisdom - infinitude - sovereignty - holiness trinity - omniscience - faithfulness - mercy omnipotence - love - goodness and selfsufficiency.

Jehovah Rohi - The Lord My Shepherd Elohay Kedoshim - Holy God Jehovah Rophe - The Lord our Healer Elohay Elohim - God of Gods El-Elyon - Most High God Jehovah M’Kaddesh The Lord Who Sanctifies Jehovah Shammah - The Lord is There Elohay Yishi - God of My Salvation Jehovah Shalom - The Lord our Peace Kadosh - Holy One

You will find when you pray His names: power, healing, joy, deliverance, peace and love.

Jehovah Nissi - The Lord our Banner Elohay Israel - God of Israel Jehovah Sabaoth - The Lord of Hosts

I invite you to press in to God through His

El-Olam - Everlasting God

names. You will find a deeper love relationship

Or Ha Olam - Light of the World

as you journey through the names of

Melekh - King

Emmanuel - GOD WITH US.

Ahvee - Father Adonai - Lord

Worship of Fire Worship begins when you open the door of your heart to God...

Worship must begin on the inside - it is a matter of the heart. The Lord wants to take us to another level of worship. The season of worship we are about to encounter will require a deeper ear to hear the Lord. “Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks. God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in spirit and in truth.� John 4:23-24

As a teacher and a worshiper it is my passion to teach the people of God to worship God. There is no formula, that says, this is how you worship, but there is a position of the heart that God requires from us and that is where worship must begin. It is a journey that begins IN THE HEART

Inspiring Moments… Ladies, It is time to be inspired in every area of your life. It is time to find the inspiration to embrace the woman God created you to be. For years, many women have been sitting on the back burner, side lined due to low self-esteem, insecurity and inferiority. Pick yourself up, step up to a mirror and shout: I’M BAD BEAUTIFUL, AMAZING AND DESTINED FOR GREATNESS. Here are some words to inspire you to move forward in life. 





It is very important to stay in touch with who we are in Christ Jesus. If we loose sight of WHOSE we are, then we are destined to travel wrong roads, make wrong choices and settle for LESS THAN God's best for us. Stay connected to the vine. Often as women, we forget that God created us with an inner strength and determination that says, “I am fearfully and wonderfully made by the hand of God. I am more than a conqueror. I am strong in the power of His might. It is vital to your emotional and spiritual growth to be free from the chains of fear, shame, abuse, bitterness, anger, doubt, low self esteem or whatever it might be - so that you can walk in the fullness of life. You cannot carry around dead weight.



The only person that can condemn you - is YOU. Everyone else is on assignment.



Your heart was equipped by God with many things: (1) love (2) hope (3) desire. Anything else might weigh you down. Hold on to the things that matter most.

 The day you discover your inner strength is the day you will stop settling for less than God’s best.  When people put you down, find a way to lift them up. They might be putting you down because they need a way to feel better about themselves.  As you overcome challenges and obstacles, learn from them so that you don’t have to repeat them.  If you don’t learn from your mistakes you will repeat them and the next time it might be worse. 

Don’t choose men because they look GOOD, choose men because he looks GOD. (The man that finds a wife, finds a good thing - let God do the choosing).

 Look for patterns of behavior that keep you from moving forward. Dating the same destructive men, spending habits that leave you bankrupt, employment choices, eating habits. Work towards changing unhealthy areas of your life.

Be Inspired…

Be Courageous and walk through the Open Doors God has put in your life Remember: Opportunities are often disguised as problems. Problems can actually be an opportunity! Opportunities are often time-sensitive. Don’t let hesitation and procrastination lead to devastation! Opportunities are often tested by opposition. Don’t miss a blessing filled life by trying to attain a problem free life! Opportunities are often missed because of fear. Whenever there is fearful response on our part there is a faithful reassurance on God’s! Don’t limit God! Develop eyes of faith which are constantly looking for the doors He is opening. Use the four check-points above to evaluate current opportunities. Once you cross the threshold of an Open Door you’ll discover God’s hand reaching out for yours on the other side.
