with Apostle Joyce R. Payne

And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”  Joh  8:32 

Jesus Christ Reigns Lord!

Welcome to this site where the truth of God’s word is celebrated.  Wherever you are in life today, God loves you.  Creator God made the world and everything in it.  For those that may dispute this fact, God loves you too and wants you to get to know Him.  Some people have had misfortune in life with poor examples for parent, leadership, love or fellowship; but God, the Father, wants to make it all up to you.  You will find that the Father, who manifested in Jesus Christ, will lead the way to the supply of all your needs and He will make your life joyful, beautiful and content.  It is a journey we enter into for a life with God through the teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ that brings peace with God.  God will meet you right where you are and lead you on a journey that brings understanding to enter into a relationship with the Heavenly Father, if you choose to believe and trust in the sacrifice of the Lord Jesus Christ for you. Accept and follow Christ for a blessed life.

For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life. For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved. Joh 3:16-17 

This site is dedicated to those that seek Him and those that know Him.

The Commission

The Mission
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations,
The Work
Baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you:
The Witness
And, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world.
Mat 28:19-20

This ministry is an active outreach ministry to those online and in the community through spreading the gospel message of Jesus Christ.  God has revealed Himself to us in Jesus Christ and appeals to all men everywhere to accept Jesus Christ as Savior. God is not willing that any should perish but that all would come to the knowledge of truth.  This outreach is intended to reach the unsaved with the salvation message and to encourage the saved in a closer walk with the Lord. Bible teaching and every word written comes with an understanding of the word and years of experience walking with the Lord; yet in humility to the Spirit of Christ, we remain teachable and open to other’s insight and welcome discussion. The body of Christ must learn from each other and none of us singularly possess the full revelation of the word of God.

Ministry Outreach Methods

  • Newsletters/Articles  (See below)
  • Books (See Literature section)
  • Street Witnessing (Periodic)
  • Group Meetings – (On-going Home Bible Studies-Conferences-Discussions)
  • Media (book signings, reviews and interviews as announced) 

This ministry is about having an experience with God that delivers the minister first and then puts forth that ministry knowledge to enlighten others. The best orators cannot minister to others what has not been experienced and inner healing must come from Jesus Christ through our fellowship with Him. I am so thankful that He grabbed my life early and brought salvation, healing, deliverance, knowledge and stability through the Word of God. There may be many new interpretations of scripture and edited versions of the bible, but this ministry holds that Word of God is true as written without mankind’s revisions, additions or new interpretations. The Word of God is confirmed within it’s writing and by the Holy Spirit. The Authorized King James Version of scripture is primarily used on this site with other materials used as reference.

Preach the Word

I charge thee therefore before God, and the Lord Jesus Christ, who shall judge the quick and the dead at his appearing and his kingdom; Preach the word; be instant in season, out of season; reprove, rebuke, exhort with all longsuffering and doctrine. For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry. 2Ti 4:1-5

My Thoughts on Today’s Issue

Racial Conflict:

Our Democracy Still Works

June 2, 2020

I believe our democracy still works because it is based on Judeo-Christian principles and acknowledges the foundation on which America was built as “One Nation Under God.”  It is not a perfect union because its people are not perfect.  We are the product of all of our histories and experiences.  Americans have fought with others and each other to find a place of peace to live a civil and peaceful life.

Many of the founders acknowledged God but they had not come to agreement on how to worship Him.  The solution is found in Jesus Christ where through His love, we accommodate each other’s differences until we can come on one accord.  The thirteen colonies had many forms of religion and recent attempts to bring the nation into one religion through evangelical efforts promoted a white religious experience that may have centered on worship of Christ, but it also united mostly whites who organized a doctrine around their race.  Many good intentions have gotten hijacked along the way.

Christian values should never be yielded to the loudest or strongest person in the room and we should not try to organize faith as a retail business.  Some leaders in the Christian movement have proven to be racist and/or opportunists who promoted financial gain and racial exclusion.  Attempts to bring the nation into a perfect union have opened the door for racial supremacy and efforts to lead and contain it, even through use of military force.  The actors and history is too long to itemize here, but in the weakness of our efforts to hold together our unity, the God we chose to be over us has fought for us.  In a recent portrayal of American history on the History Channel, I recognized in the brief summary how God would use over and over the most unlikely persons to stand up and make a difference and how it kept the nation moving forward.  We call them heroes.

In our recent conflicts of leadership, God has used unlikely leaders, but it only worked because our democracy allowed the freedom of expression for people to stand up against unrighteousness, which is our strength.  However, a democracy that makes us march behind a wrong leader like tin soldiers is no democracy at all.  Our democracy is strengthened by our Judeo-Christian principles where we believe in standing up for righteousness.  When righteousness is forsaken, there is no democracy.

America must continue to be “One Nation Under God” practicing Judeo-Christian principles where people of other nations and faiths can come in and learn about our faith in a God who sent a Savior for all people.  If we lose our foundation, on what will we stand?  God is still rising up unlikely heroes to help us preserve our union, our nation and our faith until we can come into a unity that is only found in Christ, who alone can unite us in heart and obedience.

The founders of the nation all agreed to identify as “One Nation Under God”, even some who were deists, because they were educated men who recognized the apparent proof of creation before their eyes.  They established a system that would allow every person to have their own religious experience to come to truth.  The evangelical effort to force on us their brand of Christianity and selection of judges is in error.  These are acts God has promised to perform.  As a Christian, I recognize this error.  I believe the nation of America will stand despite us because we acknowledged God’s rule over the nation and I believe He will work with us until we can get it right.

God Is Speaking – Are You Hearing?

Lessons God is Teaching Us

December 11, 2019

God has being speaking prophetically for years that He was going to bring correction and judgment upon the things He was also revealing to my spirit that was going on in the earth. I wrote about them, talked about them, prayed about them and gave warning to those that would hear. One pronouncement was entitled “Correction of the Church.” God is not only correcting the church but correction is coming for our world as He judge governments, organizations, churches, homes and individuals . Wickedness cannot go unchecked before God forever. He allots time for our awareness, repentance and confession; but eventually He intervenes and deals with the sin. I call it a move of God because our action causes God to move in the earth. It really is a matter of God performing what He has spoken down through the ages. Our obedience or disobedience causes God to move His hand toward us. We make our choices and God responds in kind. 

Many people have been puzzled even confused about what was going on because they did not know God or His word. But if you know God’s word then you know His ways because He moves according to His word. God’s prophet stands in a difficult place because the sword cuts both ways. God’s anger does not spare the prophet when disobedient and the prophet experiences God’s anger and His favor accordingly. I walked with God as He showed me the targets of His anger—not a good place to be. We have seen His anger fall in various places recently and many wondered what was going on. God breathed on situations and places and because He is not finished yet, people still have time to correct themselves. The prophet is the first one who goes through the chastening fire and has to correct errors and sin to be used of God. No one is spared the all-seeing eyes of God.  Even those who have not yet been corrected, He sees and knows their allotted time. 

I realized from the beginning of my experience with God that He wanted to use my life as a witness for others. This website records much more about me than I ever desired but it records my religious experiences with God from the early days to the present. God wanted a point of reference that people could relate to and consider their own experiences. My experiences are similar to many people past and present who were lessons for me. There is a walk that we all have to have with God that is similar to the patriarchs of old and the early disciples. It is the same journey, so don’t be fooled into believing yours is different. We all have to believe by faith and walk by faith. We all can hear from God and choose to follow and obey. He is still doing the same things today that He did yesterday, and we still do not have any excuse for not obeying. God has plotted a course for all of us that will heal, deliver, bless and establish us as His servants, if we obey. All the things the devil offers are smoke and mirrors to give only temporary answers that will not satisfy in the end. We have seen people—celebrities—who took his deal and it ended badly. So, it is important that we observe and learn from the lessons others teach by their lives to learn the results of our choices. Below are some lessons that God is holding up before us in our everyday life, in public sight through news coverage so all can see and learn. Don’t miss the lessons!

  • We cannot automatically assume leaders are righteous because they are leaders but we should consider their ways and actions to determine their moral values. We are shown examples of good and bad at every level of society in scripture. Jesus taught about good and evil leaders and how to discern them. God does not require us to follow the ways of evil leaders. Ex: (Mt 23; Mat 23:3;  Dan 3:15; 1Jn 4:1)
  • God does not give males the leadership role automatically because of their gender but God proves His authority by the anointing or favor He places on an individual and the evidence of righteousness in the individual’s life. Marriage designates the male as the head in the marriage but in other situations and in the church, leadership is based on ability or calling. (Jdg 4:4; Jdg 5:26; 1Co 11:3; Joe 2:28; Gal 3:28)
  • God does not approve of any leader’s abuse of a subordinate and will judge leaders for abuse. (Num 22:27-28; Ex 3:7-8; Col 4:1; Ps 82:3)
  • When we do not establish and pray for righteous leaders, we can fall at the mercy of wicked leaders. (1Sa 8:18; Ex 18:21)
  • People of power may misuse the weak under their power but the righteous should stand up for them. (Rom 15:1; Ex 1:16-17)
  • White supremacy is not promoted by God. (Gal 3:28)
  • Government that does not honor God as leader will fall into chaos. (Ps 33:12, Deu 28:15)
  • The bible scriptures were intended to give man guidance to distinguish between right and wrong so that he could choose the right rather than wrong path. Polling does not guarantee of a righteous answer. (2Ti 3:16; Deu 28:1-2)
  • Man’s natural opinions and conscious is not reliable guidance in choosing the right path. (Pro 3:5-6)
  • Religious leaders of the true church have the responsibility to produce God-fearing leaders who help guide our society in services and protection; but when those leaders fail, our society becomes corrupt. (Act 6:3; Act 6:1; 1Co 12:28)
  • When the devil sits in the high places, he subverts systems and authority to deceive the people. (Ez 43:7; Job 2)
  • A divided house cannot stand (Mar 3:25).
  • The love of money is the root of all evil (1Ti 6:10; Mar 8:36)
  • When godly foundations are destroyed, the enemy has an open door to do great damage (Ps 11:3, Mar 3:27).
  • God is Sovereign, Lord and king and no one can take his place.  (Ex. 34:14).
  • The prosperous wicked will be judged (Ps 92:7; Ps 37:1-2, 35)
  • The devil sends deception and lying spirits before he destroys (2Ch 18:21)
  • A nation that will not serve God will serve their enemies (Jer 17:4). 
  • The fear of God is the beginning of wisdom (Pro 9:10).

We have seen God’s judgment fall on leaders who were abusive and corrupt in their positions. He has unveiled their deeds and opened our eyes to recognize poor leadership. God has told us to submit to authority even as Jesus submitted to men of authority when he was in the earth. He paid taxes and submitted to punishment when wrongfully sentenced. Righteous authority should correct error in leaders. Some leaders are so crafty that the public may not be aware of their wrongdoings. When leaders go uncorrected, God pulls the cover off to expose their wickedness to cause repentance in the wrongdoer and to reveal sin to those who have the authority to correct the wrongdoer. If we do not correct or judge the sin, we not only become party to it and corrupted by it but we become subjected to the judgment that God will ultimately bring upon the sin. We saw an example of this in the biblical story of the rebellion of Korah under Moses leadership (Num 16:1-30). Death threatened the camp of the Israelites because of the sin of Korah. Only when the sin was judged were the Israelites safe. When God uncovers sin for us, it is for the purpose of us doing something about it. Repentance and judgment must occur or God will deal with it in His final judgment with to suffer as a result. The righteousness of God requires the judgment of sin. God has spoken and shown us what is on His heart and it is up to us to respond. Moses and Aaron chose to separate from sin and we must choose to do the same. Read Num. 16:26-34:

Num 16:26 – And he spake unto the congregation, saying, Depart, I pray you, from the tents of these wicked men, and touch nothing of theirs, lest ye be consumed in all their sins (please, continue reading the story) . . .


Promotion Comes From the Lord

April 15, 2018

God Will Judge with Equity –

To the chief Musician, Altaschith, A Psalm or Song of Asaph. 

Unto thee, O God, do we give thanks, unto thee do we give thanks: for that thy name is near thy wondrous works declare.  When I shall receive the congregation I will judge uprightly.  The earth and all the inhabitants thereof are dissolved: I bear up the pillars of it. Selah.  I said unto the fools, Deal not foolishly: and to the wicked, Lift not up the horn:  Lift not up your horn on high: speak not with a stiff neck.  For promotion cometh neither from the east, nor from the west, nor from the south.  But God is the judge: he putteth down one, and setteth up another.  For in the hand of the LORD there is a cup, and the wine is red; it is full of mixture; and he poureth out of the same: but the dregs thereof, all the wicked of the earth shall wring them out, and drink them.  But I will declare for ever; I will sing praises to the God of Jacob.  All the horns of the wicked also will I cut off; but the horns of the righteous shall be exalted. Psa 75:1-10

When we have been emptied of all self-glory, when the enemy has heralded his best at us and when the potter’s wheel stops spinning; then we are ready for God’s use. Joseph was loved of his father and yet he found himself rejected, betrayed, abandoned and imprisoned. For all the good he tried to do, he found evil coming time and time again. Why would God subject His beloved to such torture when Joseph only sought to please his father?  Job asked: What? shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil? In all this did not Job sin with his lips. Job 2:10

Man’s mind is finite and we do not have the ability to understand the infinite wisdom of God. While we look at the present and what we desire, God looks over the course of our lives to see the good and evil, strengths and weaknesses. He puts in His servants those things that will be needed for all situations, whether good or evil. God was building in Joseph strength and character that he did not have in his father’s house. Joseph’s natural father taught him love and acceptance as a son but his Heavenly Father built in him the ability to take rejection and stand strong as a leader. If Joseph had not gone through the period of rejection, he would not have learned that God was with him in all situations, working through the good and the evil. 

It is hard to walk alone and it can seem very lonely at times. But God’s servants are never alone; they are always in His presence and before His eyes. Their cries are heard and their requests are answered not because of privilege but because they are emissaries for the Lord. Neither the mission nor the possessions are theirs, everything, including them, belong to the Lord. Their very lives have been purchased with the blood of Christ.  Though Christ declares us free (released from the bondage of Satan); yet we are entirely owned by the Lord, not as slaves but as willing servants. The Old Testament reveals a statute where the slave could be set free and yet choose to stay with the master of his own free will. God is a good master and His fields are always fruitful.

Having been put down by the world and having no further use to it, I am happy to know that I have yet value to the Lord. Where man has said we have no use of you and given demotion. God has said: “Now I can use you.” I feel like speaking like Paul: “I think myself happy… because I shall answer for myself … Having therefore obtained help of God, I continue unto this day…” Act 26:2, 26:22. To all those that tried to beat us down, they have, nevertheless, witnessed the power of God to preserve His servants. Pharaoh was an evil ruler and the people had to endure and wait until God had proven to that wicked Pharaoh who was the Real God. The people of God will suffer long and hard sometimes while God is making them and showing His power to those who oppose them. We cannot understand the infinite wisdom of God.

I also think myself happy and yet unworthy to be used of God. And when we would say that I cannot be this and do thus and so, God compels us to obey. While I have sought no office or calling of God, I am compelled to answer His call for what He has called me to for there is no place of obedience or use outside the will of God. Promotion from the prophetic office to the apostolic office represents words or titles that many are using now days. Titles are useless if there is not power to fulfill the calling. Moses told God: “If thy presence go not with me, carry us not up hence (Ex 33:15).” The greatness of Moses was nothing without the power of God backing him up. It is a fearful thing to assume a place in God that He has not authorized and yet many do it. I have hesitated to move forward; even after being authorized by God during the past several years to assume the title and work, because of seeing so many wrongly use their office. However, God has a way of putting us in a box until we do it His way. The title goes with the work and the work must be done.

A major difference between the prophetic office and that of the apostolic is that the prophet proclaims what God says and the apostle establishes or sets up what God ordains. If the prophet speaks, then someone should be there to receive the message and accomplish the work. But if no one hears the message and responds, then the messenger is speaking in vain, but God will judge those that did not obey. The apostle both hears and performs God’s will. There are people today who profess to be apostles who also say they need the voice of the prophetic. That is false. Paul did not need to hear a prophetic voice to do the will of God. Paul knew God for himself and went about doing what God said do. A prophet did, however, prophesy a confirmation to Paul of what Paul already knew. God is seeking a performance of His will and a dysfunctional church cannot accomplish the will of God if they are fragmented and unable to discern His will. 

God invested a lot of time teaching and instructing me in His will through many places and people, pointing out the good and the evil. Much warning was instilled in me as I saw the wicked misuse God’s name and power for their personal advantage. I saw the hurt of people as leaders abused their authority. I both felt and saw the anger of the Lord over misuse of His authority. If people really knew God, they would not play with the things of God. God is so merciful and long suffering even to those who abuse His power. All of that said, perhaps it is easier to understand the reluctance I have felt in using religious titles. The only confidence one can have in the assignment of their work is the assurance of God in saying: “I will be with you.” The power is God’s, the work is God’s and the people are God’s. There is no place for one to glory. When we look at the wretch that we were, the work God has done in us and the things God has brought us through; how can we be anything but thankful for His mercy and grace. Praise God for His goodness! All the honor and glory belongs to God.

From Early Faith to Developing Ministry


To the Remnant – God Loves You

Remnant of Israel

I say then, Hath God cast away his people? God forbid. For I also am an Israelite, of the seed of Abraham, of the tribe of Benjamin. God hath not cast away his people which he foreknew. Wot ye not what the scripture saith of Elias? how he maketh intercession to God against Israel, saying, Lord, they have killed thy prophets, and digged down thine altars; and I am left alone, and they seek my life. But what saith the answer of God unto him? I have reserved to myself seven thousand men, who have not bowed the knee to the image of Baal. Even so then at this present time also there is a remnant according to the election of grace. Rom 11:1-5  (KJV)

August 2018

The Spirit of God has spent countless numbers of hours, days and years talking to me about this generation as I described in my testimony of August 2013 on this site.  We have arrived at the time that He told me about when people would forsake the truth and not want to hear the Word of God.  But there is yet a people that want to know the truth, are still seeking Him and those that want to go higher in the Lord.  To those people I want to share with you what God told me to tell you, not for want or need of doing so personally, but out of obedience to He who has saved and kept me. 

These are difficult days as God said they would be and few can decipher what is truth from what is a lie.  Going through the fire is difficult but when you have come through you know the difference.  God is my life, my very next breath and without Him I cannot exist.  He made me for His purpose and has set me to do His will “today.”  If you would like to hear what God has sent for this generation, you can contact me through the contact section on this site, at jrpmail2003@yahoo.com  or by mail at P.O. Box 52652, Durham, NC 27717.

I would not trade what God has done in my life and though not yet perfect, I rest comfortably in His arms of grace and mercy.  I have found great joy in His service!  May God bless and strengthen you until Jesus comes.

Joyce Reba Payne, Servant of the Lord Jesus Christ
