Happy, Blessed and Glorious New Year! We Bless You Covenant Partners and Friends of JCM in this New Year of 2020! And WHAT A YEAR THIS IS GOING TO BE! 2020 IS NOT GOING TO BE LIKE EVERY OTHER YEAR! The Lord is going to do marvelous things for those who will believe! Set your heart and mind in FORWARD with Dewayne and I! We are believing by faith that we all have eyes to see, ears to hear and hearts to receive ALL THAT 2020 HAS FOR US! THANK YOU FOR ALL THAT YOU DID FOR OTHERS IN 2019! Not one thing you did for The Kingdom of God was overlooked by The King! Let’s start looking at and digesting all that The Master wants us to know for this Glorious Year of 2020! We Love You! – Dewayne and Jamie



          There is SO MUCH to obtain about this amazing Year of 2020!  The Lord has prophetically given us a Word for this Year and I want to begin by teaching you about some things before we go straight to the Word.  This is SO GOOD, CHURCH!     




           There is an awesome Promise and Insight into something that has been placed in our lives that if we do not just stop and examine we can miss SO MUCH.  More than I can even write to you about can be missed!  This Prophetic Word for 2020 has so much to do with an important word in all of our lives.  And that word is “PATH.”  The Word of God tells us about a “Path” that is so significant to each of us.

For we are God's [own] handiwork (His workmanship), recreated in Christ Jesus, [born anew] that we may do those good works which God predestined (planned beforehand) for us [TAKING PATHS which He prepared ahead of time], that we should WALK in them [living the good life which He prearranged and made ready for us to live].” Ephesians 2:10 (AMPC)


          When we give our lives to Jesus Christ, we become “Born Anew” or “Born Again.”  We are God’s “workmanship,” His “handiwork.”  We are His achievement, action, deed, His work, His Creation.  We are brand new and He is pleased of us and He continues a “molding” of you and me, a sculpting if you will of us and our very lives!  How Beautiful is our Lord and His Ways with us!  And as He works with us, He is also speaking to us and ministering to us to help us grow and to do THE DESTINY that He has for us. Within our DESTINY are things He has for us to do.  Yet, everything that He has for us to do IS GOOD.  Everything He has for us to do IS WONDERFUL and IS GLORIOUS!  The things are SO GOOD that God Himself “predestined” and “planned beforehand” these things!  GOD, HIMSELF THOUGHT these things were GOOD for you to do and accomplish and He has them all set up and ready for you, Beloved!

          These “good works” are “predestined” and “planned beforehand” for you.  That means that the good things for you are ALREADY WAITING ON YOU!  These good things for you are part of your Destiny.  And it is VERY IMPORTANT that you and I arrive to where these things are.  And, these good things have a LOCATION.  So, WHERE ARE THESE GOOD THINGS AT?   The Bible tells us the answer.  The Good Things are on “PATHS” and The Bible tells us that The Lord prepared these paths ahead in time and ahead of us!  That’s HUGE!  There are “PATHS” that are arranged and ready for US!  And The Word tells us something else important, the PATHS . . . are ahead.  There is a direction in motion that the PATHS lead us on and that is not BACKWARDS!  In order to do the Good Things and to experience the Good Things, you and I must go FORWARD on the PATH that God has pre-done for us.


            Yet, there is a word that is conditional in Ephesians 2:10 and that is the word, “should.”  We “should walk in them.”  Should walk in what?  We “should walk in the” PATHS THAT He has prepared, predestined, prearranged and made ready for us to live!  We SHOULD . . . DO THE GOOD THINGS GOD HAS WAITING ON US!  We SHOULD . . . TAKE THE PATHS!  We SHOULD . . . WALK AHEAD ON THE PATHS OF GOD!  But, every one of these decisions is up to us.  We spend our lives the way we choose.  We take and walk on the PATHS that God chooses and has prepared and predestined for us or we take and walk on the paths . . . THAT WE CHOOSE.

          Church, if we DO NOT ask God what He wants us to do, where to go and things we’re to do or not do in our lives and OBEY what He tells us, then we are doing our own thing.  If we reason our decisions out and lean on our own understanding then HE IS NOT the one leading, we are.  Proverbs 3:5-6 tells us plainly how it works.

“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; 6  in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.” Proverbs 3:5-6 (NIV)


          WOW!  Are you seeing an important word that has to do with this Prophetic Message in Proverbs 3:5-6?  It’s The Word, “PATH.”  We see that if we are making our own decisions and leaning on what we think, on what we want to do, on what we determine and not trust God and His Word and His Ways then it affects us and us on our Paths!  Remember, that Jesus led His Life by two things, He only did what He saw The Father doing and He only spoke what He heard The Father say. (John 5:19-20 and John 12:49-50).  Jesus TRUSTED Father for what to do, where to go and what He should be saying.

“But Jesus said [answered them], “I tell you the truth [Truly, truly I say to you], the Son can do nothing alone [on his own initiative; by himself]. The Son does only what he sees the Father doing, because the Son does whatever the Father does [for whatever the Father does, the Son does likewise].” John 5:19 (EXB)

“So Jesus said, “I speak to you timeless truth. The Son is not able to do anything from himself or through my own initiative. I only do the works that I see the Father doing, for the Son does the same works as his Father.” John 5:19 (TPT)

“Jesus: The truth is that the Son does nothing on His own; all these actions are led by the Father. The Son watches the Father closely and then mimics the work of the Father. John 5:19 (VOICE)

“This is because I have never spoken on My own authority or of My own accord or as self-appointed, but the Father Who sent Me has Himself given Me orders [concerning] what to say and what to tell. 50 And I know that His commandment is (means) eternal life. So whatever I speak, I am saying [exactly] what My Father has told Me to say and in accordance with His instructions.” John 12:49-50 (AMPC)


          God wants all His Children that are Born Anew, Born Again to do life like Jesus, The First Born did.  Before we are Born Again, Born Anew, the devil and we were the ones that led our lives.  Now that we have made Jesus our Lord, He should be The One leading us, not ourselves.  Jesus came here to Earth to redeem us, save us and show us how to live, how to do life!  Re-read the above verses and let them get down in your soil, which is your heart.  Let The Seed of His Word, The Seed, which is Jesus, Who Is The Word get down in you, the soil!  


"In the beginning [before all time] was the Word (Christ), and the Word was with God, and the Word was God Himself. . . 14 And the Word (Christ) became flesh (human, incarnate) and tabernacled (fixed His tent of flesh, lived awhile) among us; " John 1:1,14 (AMPC)


          Don’t let your opinions, your feelings, your reasoning, your understandings or traditions GET IN THE WAY . . . GET “YOU” OUT OF THE WAY . . . SO YOU CAN BE ON YOUR PATH OF GOD, Beloved of God!  Read these Scriptures and believe for eyes to see and ears to hear in Jesus Name! 
Your Destiny Which Is On Your Path That Is
Pre-Planned, Pre-Destined, Pre-Arranged and Made Ready By The God of Heaven and Earth Is Waiting On You!  Don’t Miss It!

Your Destiny Is Tied To You Arriving To Your Assigned Destinations “ON The Paths”


Obedience Is Tied To The “PATH” Of God He Has For You!

 * One Must Keep Following Through

* Being Constantly Consistent

* Be Willing and ObedientNO MATTER WHAT

*One Must Keep Mind & Actions IN FORWARD






          Now we come to the Teaching and Word for this marvelous Year of 2020!  The Lord would have me to take you to examine a life to which this Word for 2020 begins.  Our PATH is tied to this life in The Word of God and it is the life of Abraham.  Abraham had a PATH that God
Pre-planned, Pre-arranged, Pre-destined and made ready for Him too.  Really take into consideration these truths about Abraham and consider what you would have done.  Some facts to read again about Abraham are:

Abram was 75 when God first appeared to him and asked him to leave his home and family and go. (Genesis 12:1-8)

Abraham was 86 years old when Ishmael was born. (Genesis 16:16)  Abraham was 99 years old when God appears again to him and asks Abraham to walk and live habitually for Him and says He will give him a seed that a multitude will come through.  Abram was 100 years old when Isaac was born.               

          Abraham was asked to leave his family, his home, his profession, his community, his life at the age of 75 years old by God.  And God told Abraham He would tell him the location to go to AFTER he left!  WOULD YOU HAVE DONE THAT?   WOULD YOU DO IT FOR GOD RIGHT NOW?  As we read The Bible and think about what the people in The Book did, the Lord would have me to ask you these questions.


But, what about you?  Would you do WHATEVER THE LORD ASKED OF YOU TO DO?  No Matter What?  No Matter When?



          The Lord is talking to people every day.  He asks us to do things, doesn’t He?  Yet, He needs us to OBEY what He tells us.  You and I CHOOSE whether we are going to do what He says.  Abraham had to make a choice of whether he would leave his life for the new one that God offered him which required him to leave everything he knew and his family that he had lived around all his life.  He chose to follow what God asked. 

            Abraham and Sarah see, after years, their Promise, their Word from God in having Isaac come forth and be birthed through them at their very old age.  The Bible says that they arrived at a place within themselves where they both were fully persuaded that God would do what He said He would do.


“Against all hope, Abraham in hope believed and so became the father of many nations, just as it had been said to him, “So shall your offspring be.” 19 Without weakening in his faith, he faced the fact that his body was as good as dead—since he was about a hundred years old—and that Sarah’s womb was also dead. 20 Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God, 21 being FULLY PERSUADED that God had power to do what he had promised. 22 This is why “it was credited to him as righteousness.” Romans 4:18-22 (NIV)

Abraham “faced the fact” that he was “about a hundred years old and Sarah’s womb was also dead.”  Abraham was impotent.  And Sarah at 90 had never had a child!  Yet, The Bible tells that “he faced the fact” and he didn’t let “the fact” do any “weakening in his faith!”  Abraham didn’t let what his body and Sarah’s body SHOWED THEM BOTH . . . move them to stop believing in what God had promised them! They were “fully persuaded” that God would do what He said to them He would do!  And GOD DID WHAT HE SAID HE WOULD DO!  Isaac is born and the multiplication of God’s People began!  Then later we see Father God coming to Abraham again and giving Abraham another extremely hard instruction to do and Abraham’s immediate obedience.

“2 [God] said, Take now your son, your only son Isaac, whom you love, and go to the region of Moriah; and offer him there as a burnt offering upon one of the mountains of which I will tell you. 3 So Abraham rose early in the morning, saddled his donkey, and took two of his young men with him and his son Isaac; and he split the wood for the burnt offering, and then began the trip to the place of which God had told him . . . 5 And Abraham said to his servants, Settle down and stay here with the donkey, and I and the young man will go yonder and worship and come again to you. 6 Then Abraham took the wood for the burnt offering and laid it on [the shoulders of] Isaac his son, and he took the fire (the firepot) in his own hand, and a knife; and the two of them went on together. 7. . . [Isaac] said, See, here are the fire and the wood, but where is the lamb for the burnt sacrifice? 8 Abraham said, My son, God Himself will provide a lamb for the burnt offering.  So the two went on together. 9 When they came to the place of which God had told him, Abraham built an altar there; then he laid the wood in order and bound Isaac his son and laid him on the altar on the wood. 10 And Abraham stretched forth his hand and took hold of the knife to slay his son. Genesis 22:2-3, 5-10 (AMPC)

          WOW!  What amazing faith, willingness and obedience!  Yet, I want you to look at this situation that happened through another “lens.”  Abraham is on his life’s PATH and Isaac is on his life’s PATH.  BOTH of them had to trust God and The Word He had given Abraham and BOTH ARE going FORWARD with obedience on their PATHS.  Abraham went immediately the next morning to obey what God had told him to do and he SPOKE to the men who went with him that he and Isaac WOULD RETURN. Abraham then TELLS Isaac that, “God Himself will provide a lamb.”  Abraham KEPT SPEAKING what God had told him and that was that He would use Isaac to multiply man’s descendants through him.  Abraham “was fully persuaded” not just in the conception of Isaac, but the life and seed of Isaac and The Promise God gave him about the People of God to come through Isaac!

            Try to imagine it.  Abraham has bound his son and Isaac IS LETTING him!  Abraham, with all the faith he has in himself, trusting God that what He told Him would come true!  That Father God would use his son to multiply a People through!  Abraham is about to kill HIS SEED and THE ONE HE LOVED and COULD SEE . . . for A Word from God that He gets A WORD or DIRECTION FROM!  He raises up his hand with a knife in it.  Isaac is lying bound in obedience as he possibly is looking at his father.  Abraham IN FULL TRUST OF WHAT HIS FATHER IS TELLING HIM! ABRAHAM and ISAAC ARE BOTH TRUSTING GOD and WHAT HE SPOKE!

                   And as both of these amazing people are trusting God and His Word with all their might in this moment of time in their lives . . .One thing we must see is that they BOTH, WILLINGLY MOVED FORWARD ON THEIR PATHS!  A Word was given by God.  And ACTION BEGAN.  THE NEXT MORNING . . . OBEDIENCE TO THAT WORD BEGAN!  As they traveled forward toward a literal PLACE on their PATH, up a mountain that God would show them exactly where on that mountain to stop at, the act of laying down two lives was displayed for all of Heaven to see!  Abraham with knife in hand, raised to sacrifice his son, experiences the next MARKER ON HIS PATH.

“11 But the Angel of the Lord called to him from heaven and said, Abraham, Abraham! He answered, Here I am. 12 And He said, Do not lay your hand on the lad or do anything to him; for now I know that you fear and revere God, since you have not held back from Me or begrudged giving Me your son, your only son. . . . .

13 Then Abraham looked up and glanced around, and behold, behind him was a ram caught in a thicket by his horns. And Abraham went and took the ram and offered it up for a burnt offering and an ascending sacrifice instead of his son! 14 So Abraham called the name of that place The Lord Will Provide. And it is said to this day, On the mount of the Lord it will be provided.” Genesis 22:11-14 (AMPC)


         ON THIS DAY IN HISTORY . . . a man, Abraham, spoke The Name of Jehovah Jireh. Jehovah Jireh means, The Lord Will Provide, Yahweh Will Provide, Jehovah Will See To It, The God of Provision.



He is The God Who Will Provide AND HE IS THE GOD WHO SEES AHEAD!

He has already SEEN AHEAD of you on your PATHS and He has Pre-Destined, Pre-Planned and MADE READY EVERYTHING YOU WILL NEED ON YOUR PATH!  Jehovah Jireh Seen it All (PRO-Vision) and Planned and Made Ready ALL (PROVISION) you and I will need on our PATHS!





         In this Year of 2020 The Lord is saying that IF you and I will GET on the PATH that He has Prepared, Predestined and Made Ready for us AND WE STAY ON THE PATH OF HIM, not our own PATH made by our own decisions . . . we will SEE and HEAR HIS WORD TO US . .  . AHEAD OF OURSELVES (PRO-Vision - 20) while we are on THE PATH OF HIM!  And, we will RECEIVE HIS PROVISION (20) LIKE NEVER BEFORE! 
          OUR PATHS AHEAD THAT ARE FROM HIM ARE JAM PACKED WITH PRO-Vision (20) (insight, Words of what is coming up, what’s ahead of you) FROM HIM!  The Destiny and Vision of God for our lives for 2020 is TO BE SEEN AHEAD FOR US (Jehovah Jireh) and for us to know and WALK FORWARD TO!  EVERYTHING IS PROVIDED (PROVISION - 20) TO FULFILL THE VISION AHEAD (PRO-Vision)!  EVERYTHING is Made Ready for you, WAITING THERE on your PATH, Beloved of God IN 2020! 


The Year Of Jehovah Jireh!  The God Who Sees Before (PRO-Vision (20)), The God Who Provides (PROVISION (20))!  Glory To God!


           Your job is to get on the PATH OF GOD and KEEP MOVING FORWARD IN THE PATH OF GOD!  Whatever He tells you to do . . . DO IT!  That’s HOW you move on your PATH!  He tells you Instruction, A Word (Logos or Rhema) and you do it.  When you do YOU MOVE FORWARD ON YOUR PATH!  Jehovah Jireh gives you PRO-Vision (20) where you “see” ahead and He gives you PROVISION (20) what you need!  He gives you everything you need, He Provides for you and has it waiting on you on your PATH!  Just like he did with Abraham and Isaac!  They obeyed His Words and MOVED FORWARD on their PATHS OF GOD.  They heard God, He gave them “before” direction (Pro-vision) and God had what THEY NEEDED at the Place He told them to go to!  THEIR PROVISION (20) WAS ON THEIR PATH!  The RAM was WHERE they were told AHEAD OF TIME (PRO-Vision – Jehovah Jireh) to be at. This is the Year of PRO-Vision and PROVISION (2020)!  This is A MARVELOUS YEAR for those who will believe!  Hallelujah!

If you are not where you need to be with Jesus or you have never given Him your ALL OR YOU HAVE BEEN LIVING YOUR LIFE THE WAY YOU HAVE WANTED TO AND FOLLOWED YOUR OWN UNDERSTANDING AND REASONING, now is the day of salvation and SURRENDER for you!  YOUR PATH is waiting on you!  Jesus is waiting on you!  He has EXTRAORDINARY THINGS already DONE for you, AHEAD OF YOU!  Your part is to receive Him and His Word and Instruction to you!  If you are ready to surrender your all to Him, say this prayer out loud and MEAN IT WITH ALL OF YOUR BEING.


    “Lord Jesus, You and I both know that I am not where I need to be with You.  I stop right now and I make the decision to give You my life entirely.  I surrender to You Lord!  I leave my past, my sins and my way of doing things the way I want to and I ask You to forgive me of them all.”

 “Please come into my life and change it and do something with my life.  I am ready to follow Your Plan, Destiny and PATH that you have for me.  I make You, Jesus, The Lord of my life.  Please fill me with Your Holy Spirit and Power!  I AM YOURS NOW and Jesus,

I AM YOURS TO COMMAND, Sir in Jesus Name!”


           Please let us know if you have decided to surrender your all to The King and if you are in need of a Bible!  There’s SO MUCH MORE TO SHARE WITH YOU ABOUT THIS YEAR OF 2020.  Lord Willing we will be continuing on this AMAZING WORD from our God!  2020 - The Year of PRO-Vision, PROVISION!  The Year of Jehovah Jireh!
