“. . . For the wedding of the Lamb has come, and his bride has made herself ready.” Rev. 19:7


       We Bless You JCM Covenant Partners and Friends!  Thank You For ALL That You Do For The Kingdom!  And Thank You For Praying and Supporting Dewayne and I and Jamie Carte Ministries and The Word of Life Churches That Are Being Planted.  The LORD Sees Your Sacrifices and Your Love and Your Faithfulness!  We Thank God For All Of You!  GREAT IS YOUR REWARD FOR LOVING OTHERS IN JESUS NAME!


       Lord Willing, we will continue on what Prophetically the Number “17” means to us and the Timetable of God that we are living in, in this Year of “17.”  HOW IMPORTANT IT IS TO KNOW what to expect, believe for, anticipate, recognize and gloriously receive in the Year that you have been placed by Father God within!  And the Time of God that we are within is marked by “17.”  As we have went over many times in our Teachings, NUMBERS MEAN WORDS TO GOD AND HIS PEOPLE!  When you and I see Numbers in The Word of God we are also seeing WORDS.  The Hebrew People have always known this and they still practice this Truth today!  Again, NUMBERS ARE A WAY OF COMMUNICATION between God and His People!  And this Year of “17” IS SPEAKING TO US CHURCH!  “17” has MEANING for us!  God is communicating what this Year can truly mean and be for us . . . will you listen?  Will you believe?  Will you obey what “17” requires of you, Beloved?  The Lord has a PART for us to play in this Year of “17.”  And it will be our choice whether we DO what The Lord wants or do what we are used to and want to do.  The Full Benefits of “17” and what we can obtain will be up to us to have or not have.  Our Destinies and Futures could very well be weighing on our decisions made or not made this Year of “17.” 

        We went over a few parts that “17” means last Month and we will continue to look at the other sections this Month.  Let’s look at this again,  
    “17” Means 
             * Elect of God

       * Triumph over Trials & the Devil


  * Order

            * New Direction

      * New Life
       In January’s Monthly Teaching Letter we went very deeply into two (2) Sections of what “17” meant in Elect of God, Triumph Over Trials and Triumph Over The Devil.  And I can truly say, “What an encouraging, empowering and IMPORTANT Teaching January’s Letter was!”  What “17” is communicating to us is MARVELOUS!  If you did not receive January’s Teaching, please let us know and we can send you a copy of it or you can go to

and read it there.  We have much to go forward in this Month, so I encourage you to read or re-read January’s Teaching on “17.”  Praise Him!

17” = ORDER = The Authority


       Upon praying and studying “17” and looking into the various things that “17” means, I have found that the Place that we will uncover this Month of “Order” is more than what I thought it was in the very beginning.  First, “17” meaning “Order” is “An Authority’s Direction, Instruction or Command.”  Other words that describe this form of “Order” are Plan, Regulation, Rule, Structure, System, Power, Government and Authority.  Our Wonderful God!  On one of the days that I was studying and writing this Teaching, I just had a beautiful day with Father, Jesus and The Holy Spirit!  Just a day of JOY.  I took the time to just dance and sing and have special time with my Father and I encourage every Child of God to have those times.  Now, even though my Lord took time to be with me He still was in FULL CHARGE of everything that was and is going on in the Earth . . . all at the same time.  And only He can do that!  He runs everything!  He oversees everything!  He knows the number of hairs on any person’s head, when a deer gives birth in the woods, when a sparrow falls to the ground and sees the Nations . . . and yet He has time to dance and listen to me sing to Him!  (Matthew 10:30, Job 39:1, Matthew 10:29, Psalm 66:7)  AMAZING, ISN’T HE?


       See, ALL OF THIS is His Idea, His Plan, His Creation!  Father, Jesus and The Holy Spirit were there in the very Beginning of everything!  In the beginning God (Elohim) created [by forming from nothing] the heavens and the earth.” Genesis 1:1 (AMPC)  He WAS when there WAS NOTHING!  HE set all of this up.  Everything that is was His rule and His system all done by His direction, instruction and command.  HE IS THE “ORDER” OF ALL OF CREATION and ALL THAT HAS BEEN CREATED.  If we are going to define “Order” we have to begin first with WHO BEGINS “THE ORDER” OF EVERYTHING FOREVER AND EVER and that is our God!  He is the Foremost of All Positions, The Leading, The Rank, The Chief, The Primary and The Beginning!  HE IS WHERE ALL “ORDER” BEGINS!  Hallelujah!  

       Now that may all sound fundamental to some, but there are MANY TODAY who DO NOT recognize that God IS IN CHARGE!  Many believe that there is no God and even some believe that they are their own God!  Some believe that God did not create the World and Universe and that it all “just happened.”  One of the definitions of “Order” is coming before all others in time or order, earlier, first. The Bible makes it very clear that The Holy Spirit (God) hovered over the unformed Earth.  He was before any of all that we see was here!  He is first!  All “Order” begins with Him!  “The earth was formless and void or a waste and emptiness, and darkness was upon the face of the deep [primeval ocean that covered the unformed earth]. The Spirit of God was moving (hovering, brooding) over the face of the waters."  Genesis 1:2 (AMP)



       So now that we know WHO came first and where all “Order” begins, let’s look at what the Opposite of “Order” is.  The opposite of “Order” is TO NOT FOLLOW WHO is The First, The Lead, The Rank, The Chief and The One Who Is First from The Beginning!  And what happens when people are “out of Order” with Who is their Lead and with Who The One is with Authority over All?  Then that person has chosen to be in a state of discord, disorder, imbalance, confusion and lawlessness.  (These words are the “opposite” of the word “Order” which is what “17” means!)  You cannot be in “Order” and not have Who is First be the One that is First in your life.  If someone is not following The One Who is First, then they and their life are OUT OF “ORDER.”  It truly is as simple as that.  No one can take the place of Who’s First and be in correct “Order.”  It’s impossible! 

       What is amazing to see is that all you and I have to do is turn on the News on just about any given day and we can witness many in the World displaying the very words that are opposite of “Order!”  We see them in the streets destroying Campuses, Towns, Cities, Businesses, Traffic Signs, Automobiles and various objects of Property that is not their own!  Again, the words that are opposite of “Order” which is one of the words that “17” means are discord, disorder, imbalance, confusion and lawlessness.  One of the ways we can clearly see that “Order” is prevalently operating in this Year of “17” is by what God is placing in “Order” throughout the World . . . and by the ones that are so intensely coming AGAINST “Order!”  YOU WILL EITHER BE ON THE CORRECT SIDE OF  “ORDER” OR ON THE OPPOSITE SIDE OF “ORDER” WHICH IS WHAT “17” MEANS!



          We have mentioned above what we can clearly see in the World and how it is responding to THE ONE Who is in charge and the Prophetic Time of “17” which is the Time of “Order.”  Yet, there is another Group that we MUST ADDRESS WHERE THEY ARE in this special Time of “17” and “Order.”  And that Group is The Church.  You may think, why would you look at how The Church is handling “Order” and The One Who Is In Charge (God)?  Doesn’t The Church follow God?  Let’s really look at this.

       Have you ever thought about the word and Identity of “Lord?”  The definition of the word, “Lord” is one having power and authority over others: a ruler by hereditary right or preeminence to whom service and obedience are dueEveryone who wants to be Born Again has to realize something.  And that is that you and I have to make Jesus The Lord of our lives!  If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10 For it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved.” Romans 10:9-10 (NIV)  So, the first or primary responsibility and obligation of a Born Again Believer is that you and I are to make Jesus The Lord of our lives to which by definition means that we surrender our will for His Will.  “Obedience is due” to our Lord, Jesus!  And HOW do we show obedience?  We follow what He has said in This Word that He gave us on EVERYTHING!  

       Now here is where we are going to park.  The Bible says in Luke 6:46 (NLT), "So why do you keep calling me 'Lord, Lord!' when you don't do what I say? . . . WOW!  I know that many of us in The Family of God have read this before, but truly look at this.  This is Jesus speaking here.  Jesus was addressing the issue at hand that people SAY and CALL HIM "LORD" BUT AREN'T DOING WHAT HE SAYS TO DO!  And Jesus, Himself is asking the question to those who ARE NOT doing what He says, "Why do you keep calling me Lord?"  We can clearly see from The Word of God that Jesus being our LORD has to do with OBEYING HIM and what He has said to do, HIS WORD!  Please read and hear this!  Jesus IS NOT YOUR LORD IF YOU AND I ARE NOT DOING WHAT HE SAYS!  YOU AND I HAVE TO OBEY HIM!  I know that it is very hard to read, but it is TRUTH!  Of course, we have Grace and can repent when we miss it!  Of course!  That is why we have been given the right to come boldly into The Throne Room of God and to also make requests of Him.  Yet, we cannot ignore that The Bible is telling us that calling Him “Lord” and not doing what He says can’t be.  He has given us the choice on whether we will make Him our Lord.  He doesn’t make us.  Yet, when we make Him our Lord, we have to obey Him and His Word.


       In addition, if we are NOT OBEYING Jesus then we also see in The Word that the matter of whether we really love Him or not is questioned.  John 14:15 tells us, "If you [really] love Me, you will keep (obey) My commands."  If you "really love" The Master, you and I will "keep, obey" His Word.  Jesus measures our love and intimacy with Him, by our obedience to His Word!  We also can see that Jesus told us not just once in His Word, but three times this matter to which He measures our love for Him!  In John 14:15, 21, 23-24 (AMP), “15 If you [really] love Me, you will keep (obey) My commands . . . . 21 The person who has My commands and keeps them is the one who [really] loves Me; and whoever [really] loves me will be loved by My Father, and I [too] will love him and will show (reveal, manifest) Myself to him. [I will let Myself be clearly seen by him and make Myself real to him.] . . . 23 Jesus answered, If a person [really] loves Me, he will keep My word [obey My teaching]; and My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make Our home (abode, special dwelling place) with him. 24 Anyone who does NOT [really] love Me does NOT observe and obey My teaching. And the teaching which you hear and heed is not Mine, but [comes] from the Father Who sent Me."

     The Bible has made it VERY clear that if you and I do not obey The Lord Jesus and The Word of God we are seen by God that we do not really love Him, nor is He truly our Lord!  This is so serious!  Many who have at one time in their lives put their voice to a “sinner’s prayer” and yet are not obeying God nor His Word may very well not be Born Again!  Let’s look at another example of how Jesus being Our Lord is tied to our obedience. 

"Not everyone who calls out to me, 'Lord! Lord!' will enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Only those who actually do the will of my Father in heaven will enter. 22 On judgment day many will say to me, 'Lord! Lord!' We prophesied in your name and cast out demons in your name and performed many miracles in your name.' 23 But I will reply, 'I never knew you. Get away from me, you who break God's laws." Matthew 7:21-23 (NLT)

"Not everyone who says to Me, Lord, Lord will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father Who is in heaven. 22 Many will say to Me on that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name and driven out demons in Your name and done many mighty works in Your name? 23 And I will say to them openly (publicly), I never knew you; depart from Me, you who act wickedly [disregarding My commands]." Matthew 7:21-23 (AMPC)

       There will be people, who after everything is done here on the Earth for that person, who will  call out and call Jesus “Lord” but they will not be able to enter Heaven!  Again, this is so serious!  They will have used The Name of Jesus and saw results here on Earth, but we have to soberly look at what The Word says and not just go on what man has taught us or what the opinion of others are!  "Only those who actually do the will of my Father in heaven will enter. . . . But I will reply, ‘I never knew you. Get away from me, you who break God's laws." . . . . [disregarding My commands]."

       Again, for Jesus to be our Lord, we must obey Him and what He has said to do!  And this is THE YEAR of getting things in “Order!”  This is the VERY SEASON for people who are NOT OBEYING The First, The Beginning, The One Who Is The Very Start of “Order” to begin to!  IT’S LITERALLY THE TIME FOR “ORDER!”  And if someone is not obeying The Lord and His Word . . . YOU ARE NOT IN “ORDER” WITH GOD!  You cannot be FOR SIN or COMMIT CONTINUAL SIN and keep thinking that Jesus is The Lord of your life!  If He is your Lord, what He says is what you do.  You adjust to what HE says!  For example, there are some who attend Church that have a belief that God is “OK” with indulging in sexual sins (homosexuality, adultery and/or fornication.) (1 Corinthians 6:9-10, Romans 1:21-22, 24-28, Jude 1:5,7,17-18, 1 Corinthians Chapter 5)  I have had people tell me, I know what The Bible says, but that’s not how I believe.  And most of these individuals are unwilling to follow what God has said in His Word about these sins and will defend their beliefs.  There are people who attend Church who believe that what they think is Truth and not what The Bible says!  A “Culture” of what someone thinks is right has become what is believed as Truth, not what The Lord has said as Truth!  It’s NOT What We Think Things Should Be . . . It’s How God, Father Has Set Things To Be Which Is “Order!”  IT IS TIME FOR THE CHURCH TO GET IN “ORDER!”  IT IS TIME FOR THE MINISTERS OF OUR DAY TO SPEAK THE TRUTH OF THE WORD OF GOD!  Not a “form” of what God says but plainly what He has said in His Word!  It’s the Year and Time of “17” and it is the Season for us all to get in “Order!”  If He is our Lord, we must obey Him!  Hallelujah!



An additional definition of the word “Order” which is the Time that we are in of “17” is to put in proper arrangement, preparation, readiness. To put things in right, correct and proper place.  We have discussed in great lengths that God is First and is to be in right “Order,” that’s where He has to be in our lives.  So, does The Bible tell us A GREAT BENEFIT OF PUTTING GOD'S WAYS IN FIRST PLACE IN OUR LIVES?


"But first and most importantly seek (aim at, strive after) His kingdom and His righteousness [His way of doing and being right - the attitude and character of God], and all these things will be given to you also." Matthew 6:33 (AMP) 


"Instead, be concerned above everything else with the Kingdom of God and with what he requires of you, and he will provide you will all these other things." Matthew 6:33 (GNT)


"and he will give them to you if you give him first place in your life and live as he wants you to."

Matthew 6:33 (TLB) THE LIVING BIBLE 




There is a wonderful Truth that The Lord promises us and that is when we put Him, His Kingdom, His Word, His Ways first and do what HE wants us to . . . things will be added to us!  When we have got Who and What is supposed to be FIRST and have got that in “Order” in our lives, the things that we need here on Earth will come to us!  If we give Him “first place” in our lives “and live as He wants us to, “things” will be given to us!  Do you need some “things?”  I know Dewayne and I are believing for a lot of “things” for us and the Ministry!  Well, this revelation is what is before us right now . . . . He, His Word, His Kingdom, His Ways, His Ministry HAS TO COME FIRST!  When our attention is on Him and His Ways of doing things . . . “things” will be added to us.  Now, that’s not our motives to doing The Word and making Him First Place, yet, our obedience to Him and making Him and what He says to do First in our lives DOES have a blessing.  While we are putting HIS NEEDS AND WANTS BEFORE OUR OWN, HE WILL MAKE SURE THAT OUR NEEDS ARE MET.  His Will is First.  His Needs are First.  What He and His Word say to do come before anything else, His Mission comes First.  If the Ministry has a need, it comes First.  We put His Word above everything.  We follow Him and not the World or man or what we think something should be.  He is our Lord!  He is The Boss!  He is The First and He is The "Order" of our lives.  When we see where we are missing it in His Word, we repent and ask for His Help and start ADJUSTING OUR LIVES TO HIS WILL AND WORD. 

       He is a Good God and putting Him, His Word and His Ways in the proper “Order” of First allows Him to bring “things” in “Order” into our lives!  Dewayne and I are and have in front of us many areas of our lives that we are adjusting!  Yet, some of the things that you will hear us saying now when a decision is needing to be made and is going to require something from us is . . . He comes first!  His Needs come first!  Put Him First and He’ll add it to us!  If we spend this time on Him and His Kingdom, He’ll add Time to us somehow!  If we spend this on The Kingdom, He’ll give back to us somehow!  Dewayne and I are beginning to understand that putting Him First and His Kingdom is a matter of Trust, Allegiance and Submission; Trusting The Lord that He will keep His Word.  Devoting and Giving our ALL to Him and His Mission, His Kingdom and His Word.  And submitting EVERYTHING TO HIM and HIS WORD and HIS KINGDOM and believing that He will do exactly what His Word says, “all these things will be added to you.”  When we put Him First in the “Order” of our lives . . . WE LOSE NOTHING!  WE GAIN EVERYTHING!  Praise The King!   

       Now with all of this Teaching about putting things in “Order” we have to put First things First.  Where are you with God?  Where are you with Jesus being The Lord and First Place in your life?  Are you willing to put Him in THE PLACE THAT HE IS SUPPOSED TO BE AT?  Have you been living your life . . . YOUR WAY or HIS?  It’s the Time and Year to put things in “Order.”  So, let’s start from the very beginning, make Jesus THE LORD of your life!  Not just a “badge” you wear around to identify with a group of people in your life.  I’m talking about surrendering to HIS WAYS, HIS WORD and HIS KINGDOM and making HIM IN CHARGE OF YOUR LIFE . . . and you letting go and letting Him Lead.  If you are ready, talk to Him and mean it with everything in you, 


"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."


(Take some time to just repent right here.)


"Please come into my life and change it and do something with my life.  I am ready to follow Your Plan and Destiny 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 in Jesus Name!"


       Please Let Us Know Here At The Ministry the decisions you’ve made for Jesus!   We Want To Send You Some Resources To Get You On Your Way With Your Walk With The Lord For Free!  We Love You So Very Much!   Remember, The Word of God IS THE “ORDER!”  His Word IS RIGHT!  His Word IS THE “ORDER” OF THINGS – NOT WHAT WE THINK!  Get in and stay in The “ORDER” of God, Church!  Again, We Love You and Believe In You!  Until Next Month,


                             Keep Getting Ready, Jesus Is Coming!
