Prayerfully Arranged Marriage

Written Date: Wed, 18 Feb 2009

The amazing story of  the ” Answered Prayer ” below reminds me of Ms Heloise in Asia (and others as well) who has been faithfully keeping me in her intercessory prayers for more than 17 years now (as of Feb 2009).  While reading the story, I am also impressed in my spirit that Eyd had divinely received his salvation at the end of 1997, as YAHUWAH had him in His magnificent plan such that he was being prepared to be my ” future ” husband at that time when my own life was utterly broken to pieces. . .
A spoken prophecy of YAHUWAH came to me in the beginning of the year 2001 through Pastor Prince that YAHUWAH was already preparing someone for me, and that I shall be remarried as part of  the total restoration of my life.  My personal life was crushed when Satan was given entrance into it, wherein he stole everything from me, nearly destroying me in the process.   As a result, I had started my prayer vigil for this ” unknown brother “ in YAHUWAH, as well as for the rest of the restoration that YAHUWAH had promised!
For the second time, in the year 2005 September, YHWH urged me strongly that I needed to take action and travel to the USA and attend MCWE Conference.   He had also sent a prophetic Evangelist Pastor John Koh to Singapore at the time of my birthday to announce to me that the 8th year had come, and that I should demand that “the King is to restore all that was mine . .[2 Kings 8: 6; Joel 225]:.   I had been a single mother during my famine season, and that this time was now over.
In the Year 2006 during the time of my birthday again, our Messiah Yahushua said that I shall meet my future husband in Israel, and also that I must sell all my belongings and give to His Reign (Kingdom) and live by emunah (faith); eat at His table…… and that He had a new mission / an assignment for me.   He also said that I must get ready to fulfill my high-calling to be an end-time financier ministering only unto Him in advancing the Reign (Kingdom) of YHWH in this season.   The Master continued and said  ”that I shall eat in plenty, and be satisfied, and praise the Name of YAHUWAH my Aloahiym, that had dealt wondrously with me and I shall never be in shame [Joel 2: 26]. “
And I did meet Ed on a trip to Israel organized by MCWE in 2007.  Although we met at the beginning and during the course of the ministry tour, it was on the plane returning to New York City that I got to know him somewhat.   Without any clue from YAHUWAH then, I did not give him my contact number nor did we even shake each other’s hand throughout the trip with the thought that our meeting was coincidental and temporary; we were only passing by each other at this time in our lives.  .  .
However, after we had collected our luggage and said goodbye to another,  I turned away in a different direction.  Immediately, a huge drop of  “Liquid Love” like a small water balloon fell on my head heavily, smoothly, swiftly,  and evenly, then slipping down into my heart.  This was a physical sensation that had manifested from the Ruach.  I was temporarily stunned and felt as if a strong refreshing cleansing process of my soul had begun.  Moreover, it washed away all my past memories of romance within seconds.  Then I saw and felt the supernatural hand of a messenger on my forehead “ wiping away past memories and even current emotions for anybody else.”   I was lost in a ” clean yet transparent ” state of being in JFK International Airport in NYC with only that last deep, penetrating gaze from Eyd floating in my mind and my heart.    Since those moments in the airport, I was suddenly immersed into a burning wave of heat of the Set Apart Spirit and totally drunk in the Ruach Ha Qodesh (Spirit) every day as I praised and worshiped before YAHUWAH for that whole month.  Following my return to NYC, I was staying with a Jewish couple on Staten Island across from the City
An excerpt from my journal:
” YahnEl, can you live within the fire? ” Who among us can live with the consuming fire?” (Isa 33:14)
Father, I cannot wish for painful experiences, but I can wish for you. Give me the Favor to desire you more than life itself.
Thus, YHWH declared Himself unto me as these fiery fire assailed me: ” The Fire of My Set Apartness, The Fire of My Love, The Fire of My Compassion, The Fire of My Esteem and Honor, The Fire of My Prudent Understanding, The Fire of My Knowledge, The Fire of My Zeal, The Fire of My Purity…….” The projectiles of YHWH’s Fire were to purify and to intensify our spiritual perception.( Eph1:18)
YHWH is a consuming fire (Duet4:24). By His Word, He burns up the refuse in us, the dross and the chaff; and infuses the remainder with the burning purity of His Love. (Jer23:29, Matt3:11-12, He12:27-29) The fire of YHWH must burn within the inner person( spiritual heart and human spirit (1Pet 3:4) as well as the outer person (2 Cor4:16) of the soul expressed through the body.
Song 8:6 Set me as a seal upon thine heart, as a seal upon thine arm: for love is strong as death; jealousy is cruel as the grave: the coals thereof are coals of fire, which hath a most vehement flame.
Jer31:3 YHWH hath appeared of old unto me, saying, Yea, I have loved thee with an everlasting love: therefore with lovingkindness have I drawn thee.
“Yes, YHWH my Master, Yahushua my Love, make me a burning flame of Love for You..Your Divine Love is the very flame of Fire, The Burning, All Consuming, Everlasting Passion of Your Heart…Song 8:7  Many waters cannot quench love, neither can the floods drown it! Grant me your Word in Eph3:16-20, help me to walk the path that you have invited me into as your prayer in John 17; Yes, help me to walk with you all the way through as you have prayed, in Oneness with you here on earth. phil3:14
Simultaneously, Eyd and I started our communications by phone calls and emails…it has never been stopped for a day until now; YHWH has finally brought us together in marriage after enduring various trials and tests over the  past one year of geographic separation….(At that one year,  I was ministering to YHWH in Asia and Eyd was in the USA.) YHWH has divinely arranged us to have our wedding on the 20th of Dec.2008. ( Again, it is the 8th year after the first prophecy of my new marriage is spoken unto me. )
Let me offer this as one of the praise reports that testifying YAHUWAH, our Aloahiym who is trustworthy and true, He looks over His word ( His promises unto us) to perform it. YHWH  has all of the yesterdays, todays and tomorrows of  our life in His hand; if we will just trust Him ( His Word ), He will get us through the darkest hours into the light of His unmerited favors where true shalom and joy prevail.
It is my honor to share this testimony with you. Thank you for supporting me as your sister in prayers for years, your friendship is highly cherished and appreciated. Be assured that you are also in my prayers always.
Shalom of YHWH be you always,
YahnEl Stephenson
Re: An Answered Prayer
“The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much” (James 5:16). James Rutz, author of MegaShift, tells a wonderful” story of YAH’s supernatural hand in answering prayer.
“I have a good friend named Barclay Tait who sells vacation real estate in Niceville, Florida. Back in 1977, he was a 36-year-old Florida basketball coach. That summer, he decided to hitch-hike to a Christian conference in Front Royal, Virginia. Arriving four days early, he went to a nearby forest and pitched his tent by a stream. On the last day, a tall, thin hiker with a notebook under his arm suddenly appeared, startling him as he read his Bible. Barclay explained that he came out there to fast and meditate. Dave, the hiker, replied, “Well, I’m an intercessor. What would you like me to pray for?” Feeling somewhat overwhelmed, Barclay said, “Uh, frankly, I’d like prayer for a wife.” The man wrote the request in his notebook and walked on. By 1988, Barclay, now married to Sherry, has been divinely guided to move to Asheville, North Carolina. A chance encounter in the Holiday Inn parking lot led to an invitation to join a gathering of a Christian group outside of town. Arriving just before the 7:00 P.M. meeting, the host walks in from the kitchen and stops dead in his tracks. “I know you!” he exclaims, pointing his finger. “You’re Barclay Tait!” Barclay draws a blank. “Just a minute. I have something I want to show you,” the host announces. He scampers upstairs, leaving the puzzled Taits standing in the middle of the suddenly hushed room. In a moment the host reappeared with a well-worn ledger book. “See here? This is where I wrote your prayer request in column one when I met you in Front Royal in 1977: ‘Barclay Tait: Elohim’s choice for a wife.'” Barclay looked down at the journal entry. It was the most detailed, methodical prayer journal he’d ever seen. “I prayed for you for seven years,” proclaims Dave. “Then in the middle of the night on Dec. 30, 1984, Elohim woke me up out of a sound sleep and said, ‘Write in your journal, “Prayer answered.” So I did. See? Here in column two, “Prayer answered.'” Barclay and Sherry look at each other with their mouths open. They sat down, and their eyes fill with tears. Quietly, Barclay tells Dave, “That was the day we were married.”

We are the Followers of YAH Grafted into YAH's Covenant Without End Rev 1:8 I am the ‘Aleph’ and the ‘Tau’, the Beginning and the Covenant without End, says יְהוֹשׁוּעַ H3091 (Yahushua Ha Mashiach) “who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.
