Apostle`s Prevailing Word
How About Consistency ? I have heard so much about spiritual warfare in Christendom. There are so many bends and twists, and explanations of the demonic realm coming from many different sources. I have even taught my fair share of messages about the satanic agenda. There is however, one critical element missing from our instructionals.... CONSISTENCY Consistency will do more to undermine the satanic realm, than almost any other behavior. As we consider the work and assignment of the Holy Spirit, I am sure that He does not want us to exhibit one time joy, sometime peace, and every now and then, temperance. It is His work to not only manifest, but to maintain the fruit of His nature in our lives. As we begin to walk consistently in the truth of God, and manifest the nature of God, consistently, the demonic loses it's power, and hold in the lives of the believers.
Understand, and Value Consistency.
Mark T. Jones Sr.

First Lady Lisa Jones
O give THANKS unto the LORD; for he is good; for his mercy endures for ever. God has surrounded me in this season of my life with so many wonderful people that care. The Lord has answered all the prayers that have been laid up for me which has allowed me to experience God's healing touch. Each day He has is giving me new strengths during my time of recovery. To my husband you have gone the extra mile to keep true to your wedding vows even in sickness you are the best. To my kids thanks for the chipping in and doing your part. To my mother in law, I appreciate you. To my two personal nurses (Agnes and Denise) lol, I'll keep those moments we shared together forever. To my CFM family you have made it easy even during my down time for me to continue to just be me. Thanks for the visits you don't know how much that meant to me to wake up and see you there by my side. Thanks for the phone calls, emails and text messages, that kept me encouraged and motivated to keep the faith. The tokens of love by way of gift baskets, cards, flowers, bears and other trinkets reminded me to continue to enjoy the simple things in life and not to take things for granted. It is a blessing to be surrounded by real love. I can never say thanks enough Lady Lisa Jones

“A Romantic Dinner for Two”
Filet Mignon with Madeira-Prune Sauce Ingredients 5 large shallots, peeled and halved 3 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided 1 tablespoon coarsely chopped fresh thyme 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper 4 4-ounce filet mignon or sirloin steaks, 1 1/4 inches thick, trimmed 3/4 cup Madeira 1 14-ounce can reduced-sodium beef broth 1 teaspoon butter, softened 1 teaspoon all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon tomato paste 1/4 cup pitted prunes, coarsely chopped
Preparation Preheat oven to 425°F. Toss shallots with 1 teaspoon oil in a small baking pan. Roast until beginning to brown, about 25 minutes. Meanwhile, combine thyme, salt and pepper in a small bowl; rub the mixture all over steaks. Heat the remaining 2 teaspoons oil in a large nonstick skillet over mediumhigh heat. Add the steaks and cook, adjusting the heat as necessary to prevent burning, 4-6 minutes per side for medium-rare. Transfer to a plate; tent with foil to keep warm. Add Madeira to the pan and cook for 1 minute. Add broth and bring to a boil; continue cooking until the liquid is reduced by about half, 10-12 minutes. Combine butter and flour in a small bowl. Stir tomato paste into the pan until dissolved, then add the butter-flour paste in small bits, breaking up any lumps with a wooden spoon, until it’s dissolved. Add prunes and continue cooking until the sauce has thickened, about 3 minutes more. Add the roasted shallots and steaks to the pan along with any accumulated juices. Turn to coat and cook until heated through, 1-2 minutes. Serve the steaks with the pan sauce.

Sis. Jennifer Cole WHEN I COME TO YOU It is a great thing, the greatest thing on earth It was magnified at Jesus birth. What is it? Yes it's love When I come to you I come like a dove I come not to lean upon you But to be your strong tower I come not to deplete you But only to add my life force to yours I come not to possess you But to let you choose I come not to put you in bondage But to give you the advantage I come not to stand firm upon only my opinions But to walk closely beside you in openness I come not to change you But to delight in your individuality I come not to hurt you But to feel your pain I come not to harden your heart But to be your friend from the start When I come to you I ask only that we come together in LOVE
