The King of Syria decided to wage war against the people of God in Israel. Every time the Syrian King would make a plan to set an ambush against Israel, Elisha the Prophet would warn Israel so that they evaded the ambush. The Syrian King was frustrated because he thought, that certainly someone in his camp was a spy and passing on information to Israel. How else would they know about the plans that he made against him and manage to avoid his attacks?
There are angels that surround us and the Holy Spirit that lives in us, translates heavenly intelligence concerning the activities of the kingdom of darkness. Every time the enemy tries to launch an attack against us, God will send us a warning to avoid being caught in Satan’s snare.
We see similar occurrences around the time of Jesus’s birth when Herod had plans to assassinate him. An angel appeared to Joseph in a dream and warned him to take Jesus and his mother and escape to Egypt because Herod was coming in search of him. (Matthew 2:13) It was also an angel who told Joseph that it was ok to marry Mary when he had to plans to put her away privately because she became pregnant before they were married. (Matthew 1.20-23)
What is important is for us to live at a place where we can hear from God through the Holy Spirit and ministering spirits (angels) who will transit messages to us for our protection and direction.
We have access to supernatural insight, wisdom and divine revelation concerning happenings on earth. It is in remaining in close relationship with God that we will have access to such intelligence. “having the eyes of your understanding enlightened,” (Ephesians 1:18)

I am a trained Social Worker who currently provides professional leadership on a programme to support Social Work students and Newly Qualified Social Workers entering the Social Work Profession.
Born and raised in Jamaica in a Christian family where my father is an ordained Pastor and Deacon who has served for over 50 years in the ministry. My father is also a trained musician and our family can be described as a musical family. I grew up in a small farming community in St. Peter’s, St. Andrew and my parents also have a small farm.
I credit my gift of writing to my father who I watched and listened to over the years as he wrote sermons, poems and other recitals in his capacity in ministry. English has always been an easy subject for me and over the years I have developed an increased interest in writing.
I am a Trainer, I sing and have a passion for worship, the spoken word and the free flow of the prophetic anointing. I am married to my best friend Andrew Christopher Young who is an advanced Musician and whose music you can find on YouTube and Facebook. I am a trained Coach and Mentor and I love experimenting with food so I love cooking. I enjoy trying cultural dishes from across the world and I view food as an entry into cultures and languages.
