It is my vision to share with you through my writings what God has put upon my heart and spirit. The Lord has shown me what he requires of me, and I am ready to do his will. Spiritual warfare is something I am no stranger to. We are truly living in these last and evil days. Some of you are fighting and don’t even know what you are fighting. The flesh is dangerous; the heart is wicked and corrupt, and sometimes we become our own enemy. For these reasons, it is important to stay on your knees or in your prayer closet, asking God to cover you from the enemy because Satan is out to kill and destroy. I know firsthand! Knowing Satan’s goal is to destroy me, I lift my hands and glorify him. He spared my life and gave me one more chance to get it right, so here I am.
I was born and raised on the South Side of Chicago. My childhood was not easy, but God had a plan for me and covered me with his hands of mercy, especially when I couldn’t cover myself. I left high school at the age of 14 and walked down some dangerous highways for the next few years. I left Chicago and moved to Terry, Mississippi, where I received my first blessing, my GED. I relocated to Chicago and enrolled in Olive Harvey Jr. College from which I graduated with an Associate Degree in Liberal Arts May 2, 1986. After that, I began to make some foolish decisions that caused my life to spiral out of control and led me down a pathway to hell. Once again, God came to my rescue. I will save those traumas for my next book. I decided after years of struggling with demonic warfare to join the military. After numerous of appearances in court to clear my name to avoid a six-year prison term (God covered me from the enemy), I enlisted in the United States Army on October 15, 1987, and retired after 20 years at Fort Lewis, WA, on November 1, 2007. During my time in the Armed Forces, I received my BA, in Biblical Studies from Amridge University (formally Regions University) in December of 2006. Three years later, I obtained my MA, Degree from Liberty University on May 10, 2009 (Management). Before the year ended, I was diagnosed with a brain tumor and underwent brain surgery Dec 10, 2009 (see photos below). As you can see spiritual warfare is something I am no stranger to. The Book of Ephesians 6:12 (KJV) clearly states: “We wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”I had three major deployment’s Operation Desert Storm Desert Shield, Operation Uphold Democracy (Haiti), and Tikrit, Iraq. My highest award achieved is the Bronze Star, which I received while assigned as the Senior Food Operations Non-Commissioned Officer during Operation Iraqi Freedom.
