I was wasting away in prison
“Time, what’s the time? Oh God is that it? How long have I been waiting? Hmm… do I still stand a chance anyway?? What’s the matter…You still have a plan…..right?”
(Spirit helper speaking):
“Hey, those were my thoughts. That was my life for 10 years: trusting.
I guess you could call me a blessed one. The rest of my family were killed, but I was sent to prison for umm…being a Christian. I lived in modern days, but yeah I lived my youth in a Chinese prison. Forgotten, forsaken you name it. I thought those thoughts I felt that feeling of complete and utter hopelessness. I almost gave up on life, but something kept me going, no, I wasn’t a great prison evangelist. In the eyes of any normal person those years of my life were seemingly wasted behind bars. Umm…Father, do You still know? Are Your promises true for me too?
But I held on to the fact that I was there because Jesus saw me worthy to suffer for His Name. At least in the beginning that worked…but as months turned into years I felt myself fringing on the edge of madness…I would stare into the clock and just lose touch of everything, and I honestly felt that yes, I was fading. It was while I was in that trance like state that it happened, I received one verse that made everything suddenly clear and snap back into focus. Just one verse saved me from insanity. I didn’t see anything, I just heard this: “Verily, verily, I say unto you, except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but If it die, it bringeth forth much fruit. He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.”
Here I was “losing” my life in prison, just wasting away and He was telling me that I was actually saving it?? That struck my soul like lightning and from that day on I held on to the promise that one day I would see much fruit borne in my life…I never saw it in the way that I imagined: great witnessing, hundreds of souls won so on so forth. Yes when I was released I had a great testimony. I had led many to the Lord and comforted many others. But when I arrived Here the Lord showed me just what type of fruit He was looking for.
In those seemingly endless years; how was I actually saving my life all that time? During those years I learned to trust, I learned to love Jesus more than my freedom, I learned to pray and keep praying without ever seeing any results, I learned to praise through my tears, I learned how to be closer to Jesus than ever before, I learned that He knows better. In the confinement of prison I learned that, yes, Jesus is enough. And when I got Here He showed me just how much I gained in prison! I had been saving my life all that time when I was seemingly losing it.
You might be in some prison too. You might feel like anymore is too much. He’s got you there for a reason, and He is teaching you, right now, how to love Him more than your life itself. More than that thing called relief and painless existence. Darling it won’t last too long, it won’t continue longer than what is absolutely necessary. Sweetheart it’s beautiful, when you get Here you’ll see how much you really gained from losing. Losing what you wanted and gaining what you have truly been after all along. He promises you and He always keeps His promise believe that sweet one.
It is not a matter of being free from what you see as prison… it’s a matter of being free while still in prison.
Praising behind those bars knowing that they are there because He loves you, singing on the stake because you know Heaven’s coming. Blessed are those that carry the burden of waiting…wait, wait, wait, to learn to trust, to learn to wait and to lift up your voice and know that He knows better. I love you
Father, do You still know? Are Your promises true for me too?
But I held on to the fact that I was there because Jesus saw me worthy to suffer for His Name.
Testimony of faith…wasting away
the golden key ring of faith
It was a week or two before the semi lock-down started in the country where I am a missionary. Lock-down had already begun in most countries… People were getting pretty scared at the time, but where I lived they still hadn’t declared lock-down yet so we were still out and about. I woke up one morning feeling quiet sick; I had a sore throat and a bit of a cough and runny nose. Of course because of what was happening all around the world with Covid19 coupled with the symptoms I was having it was on everyone’s mind that I might have caught it. So I was house bound just to be safe… after a week of drinking the local herb medicines and resting in bed as much as possible, I didn’t seem to be improving, but rather getting worse and came down with a fever and achy body with a severe headache as well. I had little appetite and I would throw up at times. It was almost to the second week like this with it only getting worse… then one day as I was laying in bed chatting with my parents they told me a testimony about how a fellow missionary who was recovering from surgery had been listening to the key promise audios every time she was in pain and how they had helped her so much to get through that time. So as I lay there in a lot of pain myself, I realized I hadn’t been as desperate for my healing as I should have been; though I had been praying and calling on the keys of course… so I turned on the audios and began to listen to the promises on healing. As I listened, I decided to take it a step further and focus on the power; focusing on the keys and imagining the golden key power flowing through my body, to every aching part, healing me and ridding me of the sickness. I did this for awhile until I was too tired to continue… The very next day I was able to get out of bed, eat properly and the fever and headache were gone. It was such a sudden and big change that there was no doubt what the keys had done!

ARCOTHON… do you believe in guardian angels?
While witnessing to one of our friends, I felt led to share with him how the Lord uses Angels and even Spirits to help aid us in our war against the enemy. So I began to explain how the spirit world works and how the Lord organizes His good spirits and Angels. He (our friend) was very interested to know more, so I began to share with him a few of the names of some of the many Spirit Helpers. He was particularly interested in Arcothon. I explained to him what he does and wrote down the name so he could call on him when needed…. Well a few weeks later I received a call from our friend. He said that he had a friend who was an officer in the army and this officer had problems with horrible nightmares. He had recieved prayer from his pastor but still the nightmares continued. So our friend told him to call on Arcothon. So his army friend did and the nightmares stopped.
The spiritual war is real, and we wield great power when we call on the Spirit Helpers by name.

Key of Security
The keys are your strong defense, a constant help in every time of trouble
understanding the keys using prophecy
“(Jesus:) The keys have been in existence, as a part of My heavenly power source, used as an illustration and representation of My divinity‚ since before I came to Earth. When I walked on Earth with My disciples, I told them of this power. I gave this power to them–to Peter, yes, but to all of them as well. They accepted it, and they learned to use it in some measure.”
deep level keys
“There are many truths within the Bible that were understood on some level at the time they were given, and then later were understood on a deeper level, and which I then revealed to David and his children on a yet deeper level–and when you come to Heaven, you will marvel at the depths you have not yet seen.”
“That’s one of the marvelous things about My Word and about the Bible–it provides treasures new and old. You can never say that you’ve discovered everything, for even if you
have read it all and even understood it all on some level, there are deeper levels to many scriptures, and I choose when and how and to whom to reveal these truths.”
the keys are for the tribulation
“There have been others of My children throughout history–powerful apostles, miracle workers, and saints–who have used the keys of the Kingdom to some degree, not really
understanding or grasping the power that is available through them. They didn’t fully understand it, for I had not revealed this measure of truth about the keys.”
“You are the ones who will go through the Great Tribulation and endure the most difficult time the world has ever known. I have promised to care for My Own‚ and I have cared
for My Own throughout the centuries. Does it not stand to reason that I would reserve the greatest power and the fullest understanding of My power for those who must go through the darkest days and the greatest persecutions and tribulations?”
The Keys give greater power
“I have promised that I will never allow you to undergo what you are not able to bear, and the truth be told, the only way that you will be able to survive and endure and continue to
fulfill My mission during the dark days ahead will be through the power of the keys. You need greater power, and a greater understanding of the use of that power, than the Christians of previous eras needed.”
“I provide the balance of power. If I allow the Enemy more power over the world, which will be the case when the Dragon is cast from Heaven and achieves full dominion over the world’s kingdoms, then I must in turn give greater power to My children.”
Moses the man of faith
“Look at Moses‚ after he’d been broken and humbled and learned to depend utterly on the Lord. He goes before Pharaoh, trusting God’s promise to deliver the children of Israel, and what happens? Pharaoh says no and makes the children of Israel work even harder! Things looked like they were even worse than before, and by every standard that the mind could grasp, they were! Had the Lord’s promises actually failed? Of course not. But in those times when to you they seem to have failed, it can cause severe testing if you are looking to visible results to “prove” their veracity.”
faith is the currency of the spirit world
“Faith is persevering in My will, even when you don’t see Me answering you. Noah persevered for 120 years in building the Ark, sometimes wondering if he’d gotten something wrong and was failing Me‚ and other times wondering if maybe I’d changed My mind. But he just kept plugging along nevertheless, keeping the faith. Faith was a key part of the witness that I needed him to give to the wicked world. What greater testament of faith could he have than being determined to obey whether it seemed that I was fulfilling My side or not?”
“Faith is not provable or explainable–it just is. You so often search for a logical explanation, thriving on the complexity you find in that search, instead of accepting the simple, but miraculous, mysterious and inexplicable way of faith. Strive for simple faith, and there you will find happiness.”
faith to hold on
“Think again about Noah. It took great faith to face those crowds of scoffers after a hundred years of telling them about the coming flood. He could easily have looked at the impossibility of the task before him and how long he was having to endure without seeing results. He had to take the flood and the need for the Ark totally by faith, since he only had God’s voice to go on.”
“That’s what faith is–knowing that I’m here, and that what I’ve promised I’m not only able to perform, but I’m going to perform. I know that you sometimes feel that My promises are a bit nebulous–that there are so many conditions, or that to receive an answer it has to be exactly in line with My will. That’s true–any promise could be fulfilled in a number of ways. It’s hard for you when you don’t fully know what the outcome will be. But when you base your faith on a certain outcome instead of trusting Me to fulfill My perfect will, that’s when you’re easily disappointed.”
many are called
“If discipleship was easy, Jesus wouldn’t need them so desperately–because there would be plenty of people willing to serve Him and do what you’re doing. It’s hard, it requires so much sacrifice, faith, and endurance‚ and that’s why they are rare, priceless, extremely valuable–and why He will reward them accordingly, above all they can imagine.”
