Journal of Joy ~ Thousand Oaks and Moorpark, California ~ March 16-18, 2001
Beginning Prophetic Glory Ring Workshop
03.16.2001, Friday ~ The angels awakened me promptly at 5:00 AM providing ample time to finish preparation for the Ministry Outreach to Moorpark, California. The trip to the airport was free of obstacles and delays. The porter processed the three bags without any hassles or fees. It was so easy. PTL! The flight attendant gave me a little white spear to stir my coffee with. Laughing out loud, I recalled the prophetic prayer the Holy Spirit released the night before about the LORD sending a lance/spear from heaven to California because I was literally 30,000 feet above the earth. The flight departed on time and arrived about nineteen minutes early because of a 90 mph tail wind. When we fully accept the glory of the LORD as our rearguard, time is often redeemed.
The luggage arrived safely, intact and on-time and Kim arrived at the airport without any obstacles or delays. It had been a morning of very smooth sailing. The next two hours were devoted intentionally on a Holy Spirit directed prayer journey. We prayed and poured Anointing Oil over the following strategic targets: Simi Valley Sonrise Foursquare Church, Moorpark Sonrise Pacific Foursquare, Arroyo River, Susannah Pass, High Street in Moorpork, Moorpark Community College and Moorpark High School. The angels went before us and all the church doors were opened. The California welcoming weather surrounded us with warm sunshine, cerulean blue skies, and a soft gentle breeze. Following the prayer journey, we went to Kim’s home where Degna met us to enjoy a delightful Californian style tea luncheon.
We spent the afternoon becoming acquainted, enjoyed the fragrance of the LORD as we worshiped, prayed and sought the Holy Spirit regarding the Beginning Prophetic Glory Ring Workshop. It was a sweet, sweet fellowship with Jesus and HIS friends.
Following an over-the-top California BBQ, Robin and Karyn joined us for an evening of fellowship, prayer ministry and worship. The presence of the LORD filled the room and we received HIS overt grace, mercy, wisdom, healing, light and love. There is nothing on earth that compares to the Glory of the Most High God! Karyn, whom I just met, asked if she could pray for me, I gratefully accepted. Although she did not know that from 1988 to 2001 I had lived in a survival mode with only 50% oxygen absorption, my spirit leapt in hope when she finished her first sentence of prayer. Among the words she prayed…
“Healing for body, circulatory, oxygen, straighten out the crooked limbs and bones, sinews, joints, tendons…healing. Trip to England will be restored, the accent from the LORD is a connection, an affinity for the people of England. Because of the accent, the British people will be coming to you. Kim had a picture of waves, and waves, and waves of water. In my mind’s eye I saw the English Channel. It is soon for you to go to England, but not yet at hand. The intercessors will need to fast and pray in particular for England, for breakthrough. The intercessors will need to make a commitment to pray. The LORD has prepared a wide road for you in the Spirit. Mountains will be leveled by the LORD. You will walk on water. You will be a light in spiritual darkness. The LORD is preparing your flock that you will be receiving when you go there. You are an anomaly among the Body of Christ. You have paid a steep price for your ministry, you have given up everything, but intimacy with the LORD at HIS banqueting table is the reward you have been given. I see a blue/rim/whitish/creamy color porcelain china cup/bowl, gold on the very edge…the image that came to my mind….KING JESUS was sitting there with you. It was just the two of you. The LORD is going to renew you and give you increased visions.”
Before retiring that evening, Kim gave me an original watercolor painting of Queen Esther, with the Esther 4:14 Scripture. In the painting Esther, with dark, long wavy hair, was wearing a blue and gold gown and was shooting a flaming arrow. There were 17 drops of liquid gold on the painting, which was completed in 1998. It was quite a confirmation to me personally, because Kim did not know that three worship arrows were given to me by a friend in 1998, when I lived in Redmond, Oregon. The evening remained rich with Yeshua’s presence until we retired shortly after midnight. The angels awakened me at 3:30 AM to pray, which is quite common in my life.
03.17.2001, Saturday ~ A refreshing time of prayer began the day. Then we met Degna at 7:30 AM at the Workshop location, the Hillcrest Christian School, which is also the place that Thousand Oaks Sonrise Foursquare Church meets. It was an ideal location for a Workshop with a large room, high ceilings, public restrooms, an abundance of tables and chairs. Thank You, Jesus!
Tina lavishly adorned a breakfast banqueting table with linens and fresh cut flowers. The table was filled with trays of breakfast rolls, muffins and fruit. Decanters of freshly made regular and decaf coffee were filled and accompanied by cream and sugar. A standard of excellence was present in each person’s participation in the Workshop. We warmly welcomed each person with unconditional love, integrity, respect and honor.
We hung a map of California on the wall per the Holy Spirit’s direction and asked each one attending to put a pin in the map identifying their residential location. Although the fullness of the LORD’s purposes had not yet been revealed, I was excited to see 12 pins on the map.
For the first time in this ministry, I was given the opportunity to introduce the Workshop with prophetic words given by the leadership in the local church I attended. The four words in condensed form, which I explained to the group in extensive detail, were: 1) Gold rush 2) Jehosaphat 3) Cloak of Glory 4) Lance/Spear of the LORD from heaven.
The worship portion of the Workshop began with an anointed worship dance by Kim. The song was about the LORD being JEHOVAH JIREH, our provider (Genesis 22:8, 13, 14) and JEHOVAH ROPHE, our healer (Exodus 15:26). It was prophetic, beautiful and a strong proclamation. It was the first time we opened a Workshop with a prophetic dance and also the first time Kim had danced at a Workshop. The LORD continued to offer opportunities for us to participate in the new thing that HE was orchestrating.
“Do not call to mind the former things, or ponder things of the past. Behold, I will do something new, now it will spring forth; will you not be aware of it? I will make a roadway in the wilderness, rivers in the desert” (Isaiah 43:18-19, NASB).
Since Kim had so effectively introduced the subject of healing, I shared my testimony of healings from earlier this year and then prayed for a release of the FATHER’s healing. Then the Holy Spirit blew a wind of fire throughout the room and imparted healing, freedom, and restoration to the daughters of the Most High God! More Glory!
When the teaching portion was finished, we moved the chairs and had a full auditorium for worshiping the LORD through dance. The Glory of God tangibly came into the room! It was very precious to the heart of my Father God, not to mention I was delighted beyond words!
In the afternoon, the Holy Spirit asked me to identify the person most north, south, east, west and center of the Simi Valley Territory. The LORD had asked me to set up a line of demarcation, a wall of fire, a hedge of protection in the spiritual and physical realm. The purpose was to establish the boundaries of the LORD’s sacred protection and divine provision. Kim prayed, prophesied, proclaimed and decreed over the area. Each person received a bottle of Holy Anointing Oil, the Freedom Scriptures, were knighted with the Warrior Bride Cross/Sword, and received a strong word to take the assignment seriously. This was the fullness of the LORD’s purpose in displaying the California state map on the wall.
When I began to speak about the line of demarcation, Brynnah, a young girl about 12 years-old, raised her hand and said, “It is a circle, a circle around this area. God has made a Ring of Glory and you are making Glory Rings.” It was a true prophetic word. The lance/spear hit the center of the target for the LORD’s Glory.
We began the afternoon session and by 2:00 PM everyone was working on their Glory Rings. Even the one who came dressed in reticence, brazenly colored outside the lines and made a Glory Ring! The Holy Spirit does not invite us to be vacillating spectators in our Christian Faith. We are invited to be intentional participants in the Advancement of God’s Kingdom on earth and in heaven! It is a faith of active life. At about 4:00 PM, I began speaking prophetic words over the Glory Rings.
At this time in ministry, we provided a private place for each person to receive their prophetic word; therefore, I was seated in the entry way of the school building. The compassion and hope of Christ poured out to each person. Our FATHER’s relentless love, deep passion, genuine compassion and authentic interest in the intimate details of each person’s life never cease to amaze me.
During the Workshop we gave the Trinidad Glory Ring to Degna Horton, a native of Trinidad! God's perfect timing!
HIS Covenant Waters! ~ For Trinidad! ~ May 2000 Given to: Degna Horton, Thousand Oaks, CA, USA - March 2001 Scriptures: Ecclesiastes 11:1; Ezekiel 43:1; Zechariah 14:8-9; Revelation 7:17. Handmade by Betty Leach and Jennifer Lynn Easton Joy
After packing up the Workshop supplies, we went to Kim’s home and shared table fellowship of baked salmon, fluffy white rice, and fresh green salad after a very long day. My heart was touched by her kindness and servant’s heart. Although, I was physically numb with exhaustion, my spirit soared high!
Karyn came over about 9:00 PM for more fellowship and prayer. We discussed aspects of ministry, the call of God on her life, what God is doing in the state of California, and the move of God in the Simi Valley area. I took a moment to pray for the 17 year curse of barrenness to be removed from her life among other things the Holy Spirit desired, as she had mentioned that she wanted to give her husband a child.
Karyn said that I reminded her of Kathryn Kuhlman. My response was that the one thing I learned from the testimony of Kathryn Kuhlman is that she literally stepped back on stage and invited God to move. My passion is to completely eschew all distractions and obstacles and give God room to move fully. They are HIS people after all. Then Karyn began to prophesy over me and I was very surprised, as my birth name is Jennie and she had no knowledge that Jennifer was a professional name that I adopted in the 1980’s. Karyn’s prophetic prayer:
“Jenny, my basket is full for you. Do not worry about provision. Abundant harvest there in. I am making a way in the spirit and physical. There will be money for this ministry and for you to live on this earth. God is pleased with your obedience. There is a full feast for you. Deuteronomy 33:8-11. The Land of Canaan is overflowing with abundance. It is a year of turnaround for you. Breaking of old stronghold patterns, breaking from past. You will march forward now. I will bless you. I will bless you for your concern of my glory. You are one of the few that are correct about not selling the prophetic. Your ministry is a guise for you to bring an apostolic anointing to the places I send you. You wield great authority in the spirit. Rejection will not undo you. Jenny, you will go to England soon. I have given you an advisory board and some changes are coming into place. Bring all your needs to me, do not fear. There is a season and time for everything. The tide is turning, there is an influx coming in on the waves. I see seashells coming to the shore. There will be reconciliation for your family but it will take time. Return to Oregon for a brief time of rest. Get your house in order for a visitation of the LORD; I am coming on the wind.”
We retired well after midnight fully infused and with the LORD’s grace, goodness and mercy.
03.18.2001, Sunday ~ It was a luxuriously easy morning spent in prayer and preparation for the day. The atmosphere was filled with vibrant energy, joyful enthusiasm and positive anticipation regarding the LORD’s purposes and plans. Our spirits were surging with supernatural energy. The Shalom of ABBA ADONAI hovered around us like fog rising around the ocean waves.
We attended Moorpark Sonrise Pacific Foursquare’s morning service, which was one of the Friday prayer targets. The Holy Spirit generously orchestrated this time with Kim, and HE abundantly blessed it with HIS favor, kindness, glory, mercy, grace, joy and presence surrounding us throughout the day.
The afternoon was filled to the max with personal prayer and prophetic ministry to the families of the women who attended the Workshop. The LORD was faithful to bring healing, restoration, revelation, truth, light, love, impartation and wisdom. HE is so amazing! We departed at 5:00 PM and headed to the Burbank airport for the trip home. The flight was uneventful and an easy trip with the exception of a slightly bumpy descent into Portland. There was a bit of warfare over transportation from the airport to the little 600-square-foot apartment that I call home in Gresham. The person scheduled to provide transportation made arrangements for someone else to drive me home and they arrived at the airport more than two hours late. Unfortunately, I did not receive any information regarding the transportation changes until I had waited more than an hour in the PDX baggage claim area.
As always, I remain grateful to the LORD for HIS invitation to participate in the advancement of HIS Kingdom on HIS earth. Yeshua is my complete source of inspiration and strength!
