Kairos Prison Ministry International Inc Changing Hearts, Transforming Lives, Impacting the World
Fundraiser Coordinator -Brenda K (Prophetess Sandra Dukes) At present Kairos Prison Ministry International have three programs to satisfy our calling from Jesus. Men and women from all over the world respond to this call and volunteer hundreds of hours be it actually working with individuals, praying, making cookies or preparing meals for our guests. Kairos Inside Well-organized and well-trained volunteer teams of men and women from the communities surrounding an institution present an introductory 3-day weekend, described as a short course in Christianity. This inter-denominational team of volunteers — both clergy and laypersons — works in cooperation with the Chaplain who carefully selects up to 42 inmate leaders to attend. A well-organized follow up program is part of this program.
Kairos Outside Kairos Outside is a special weekend retreat designed to support the female loved ones of men and women who are or have been incarcerated. Families of the incarcerated “do time” right along with their loved ones. In a safe environment with loving people, women interact with other women who are in similar situations and learn to form small groups to support and give them strength for the challenges they face.
Kairos Torch Kairos Torch offers unconditional love and acceptance, encouraging young men and women to share their life journey through participation in a long term mentoring process. The program begins with a weekend retreat inside the prison. Torch team members commit to a weekly mentoring process with the youthful offenders for six months after the weekend.

The Book of Proverbs (in Hebrew: מִשְלֵי Mish'ley), commonly referred to simply as Proverbs, is a book of the Hebrew Bible This wisdom literature is concerned with the realities of human experience, from the mundane to the sublime, and with the relationship between that experience and the divine. Authorship The authorship of Proverbs has long been a matter of dispute. Solomon’s name appears in Proverbs 1:1, "The proverbs of Solomon the son of David, King of Israel." There are also references within Proverbs to Agur (30:1) and Lemuel (31:1) as authors distinct from Solomon. Proverbs Authors/Collectors 1:1 Solomon 10:1 Solomon 25:1 Solomon (as copied by Hezekiah’s men)
30:1 Agur son of Jakeh
31:1 Lemuel (or his mother)
Proverbs as wisdom literature The book of Proverbs is referred to as wisdom literature along with several others: the book of Job, Ecclesiastes, the Song of Solomon, and certain Psalms, known as wisdom psalms. Among the deuterocanonical books, the Wisdom of Sirach and the Wisdom of Solomon are wisdom literature. Throughout Proverbs, wisdom (or the wise person) is compared and contrasted with foolishness (or the fool). 'Fool' in Proverbs indicates one who is lacking in morality and uninterested in correction, not one who is merely silly or playful. Wisdom is held up as something worth effort to attain and the reader is told that it starts with the person of YHWH: "The fear of YHWH is the beginning of wisdom."  Not only that, we can also find many wisdoms of woman over and over, especially we find reference to Wisdom as a female figure who speaks to the young man and invites him into her house. When we talk about this Woman Wisdom, it speaks frequently in the first person  and identifies herself not just as the divine companion, but also as the source of order in society and success in life.
There is controversy of the settings of Proverbs. Several suggestions have been made. Settings in this case in point means location, surroundings or situation.
Academia examples of Setting Family: In the society of ancient Israel, the family played an important role in the upbringing and education of children. Some internal evidence hints to the use of Proverbs in a family setting; the phrase "my son" appears some 20 times throughout the book. The role of the mother is also listed some 10 times. Court: The name of Solomon stands in the title of the book, thus suggesting a royal setting. Throughout the Old Testament, wisdom is connected with the court. School: It is possible practical and reflective wisdom was transmitted in a house of learning or instruction. Biblical examples of Setting There is evidence in the book of Proverbs that can show the type of setting described above. According to Coogan in his Introduction to the Old Testament, the authors were most likely writing to a patriarchal society with some evidence of a monarchy. "While generally conventional in its values, the book of Proverbs testifies to some of the ideals of the ancient Israelite law and of the teachings of the prophets of social justice." Here are some biblical examples of setting: Family: The role of the mother- Proverbs 1.8; 10.1 Court: Critiques of monarchs- Proverbs 30. 24-28, 29-31 Wikipedia® for References /Works Cited /Further Reading
“You Just Keep on Living and Just Keep Getting Up Each Morning”
Three months after the angel's annunciation, Mary visited her relative Elizabeth, the elderly wife of Zachary who served as a priest in the temple at Jerusalem. Mary had been told that this couple advanced in age was to have a child, too, "for nothing is impossible with God." "Mary set out and went as quickly as she could to a town in the hill country of Judah. She went into Zachary's house and greeted Elizabeth.
"Now when Elizabeth heard Mary's greeting, the child leaped in her womb and Elizabeth was filled with the Holy Spirit. She gave a loud cry and said, “Of all women you are the most blessed, and blessed is the fruit of your womb. Why should I be honored with a visit from the mother of my Lord? For the moment your greeting reached my ears, the child in my womb leaped for joy. Yes, blessed is she who believed that the promise made her by the Lord would be fulfilled.” (Luke 1:39-45) (Mary Mother of Jesus- Mary Visits Cousin /the Compassionates Companion)
And When You Feel Your Baby Leap
O’ Elizabeth’s Sons and Daughters Hear His words and hear them clear “The birthing bed is vacant The birthing room is near”
Elizabeth who was called barren Proved “There is nothing too hard for God” Possessing the forerunner’s womb The messenger John
O Sons and Daughters of Zion Conquer your fears The Lion of Judah is roaring “The birthing canal is clear”
Sent unto you is gifting To be anointed and used by the Lord Obedience and Belief is The scalpel that will cut the cord
O’ Bearers of Sweet Fruit Give reverence to The Cousin’s Womb For yours is the voice of the coming Repentance destroys the tomb
O’ Elizabeth’s Sons and Daughters Give praise unto the Lord For sent to you this day is the significance of one accord You will know its time Your prayers have been heard That who was sent has God’s undergirds
There will be many that come among you with blessings from on high And When You Feel Your Baby Leap You will know “Crowning is nigh”
And When You Feel Your Baby Leap You will know “Crowning is nigh”
It is important to know your Elizabeth and to know your Mary
The Father had placed a word in me concerning all the relationships surrounding the conception of Jesus Christ. A message and confirmation was given Sunday 12-25-2011 at Light Church in Dallas/Mesquite Texas by Pastor Ron Shaw which inspired the poem above about the relationship between Mary and Elizabeth.
The Symbolism and Spiritual Significance of the Number 11 by Dee Finney
Today is 11-11-11 here are some interesting information and research I found on the number eleven which was compiled by Dee Finney. I do not confirm or condemn Finney’s findings as I am still in study but posted as a reading of interest to those who have ponder over the number eleven as I have. Number Eleven possesses the qualities of intuition, patience, honesty, sensitivity, and spirituality, and is idealistic. Others turn to people who are 'Eleven' for teaching and inspiration, and are usually uplifted by the experience. Eleven bring the gift of spiritual inheritance, is gifted as the "Light-Bearer". It is the number of the Light within all. Strengthened by the love of Peace, gentleness, sensitivity and insight. Greatest facility is the awareness of Universal relationship. Is related to the energy of Oppositions and the Balancing needed in order to achieve synthesis. Eleven is The PeaceMaker... Colours : Gold, Salmon, Prune, White and Black.
Further Study of the Number Eleven posted in its entirety on various sites.
I would like to invite those of you in the Dallas/Fort Worth area to be with us at Glorious Occasion Evangelistic Church, for the Consecration of Bishop Harold Donahue. Bishop Donahue has accepted the position of North Texas Jurisdictional Bishop for the Tell Them Fellowship.
THE FALSE IMAGE OF JESUS: Do you know where it came from?
Cesare Borgia is in the book entitled Triptych of Poisoners, and is also in the book entitled Cesare Borgia His Life and Times by Sarah Bradford. Between 1502 and 1503, he employed Leonardo da Vinci as a military architect and engineer, in which he and Leonardo da Vinci became intimate instantaneously, they were lovers.
To express his love towards Cesare, Leonardo painted many pictures of him. Cesare's Father Rodrigo Borgia, who later became Pope Alexander VI, under the authority of the Catholic Church Elite, had his son picture put up as Jesus Christ in the Western World.
Cesare had sex with his own sister Lucrezia, and he killed his brother Giovanni in 1497, and this is the man whom the Catholic Church gave their consent to allowing his picture to be put up and portrayed as Jesus Christ to deceive the whole world to think Christ was European. See what most people don't know is, there was a competition during the time called the Renaissance period, between Leonardo da Vinci and the well known Michelangelo. The competition was to see who could impress the king by a making a new image of the King's son that would deceive the world, in which Leonardo da Vinci won the competition.
The bible calls the devil the great deceiver!
What a deception!
The image of Jesus as so spread in numerous churches & homes worldwide is FALSE!
Most Christians have not even investigated its' origin.
Surely if they did, the image would never again be posted in the church.
How you investigated?
Is one of the many images of Jesus/Cesare posted in your church?
“Gentle Warrior Be Encouraged” “ The Words ‘Gentle and warrior’ may seem to contradict each other ‘but’ in the realm of the saints it is an affirming war cry to a victorious end to an unwarranted battle”. I just felt you in the spirit this morning stronger than usual. Of course we know when you carry a friend in your spirit with Christian love and Prophetic prayer you walk around with them; they become an extension of you. They are in possession of an inaudible prayer which is placed upon their head at all times. BUT this morning I have the unction to reach out to you and tell you that you are an exceptional person. Whatever positions you own “you are” an exceptional woman/man of God. Whether you are a wife/ husband, mother/ father, sister/brother you are exceptional and indeed you have been an exceptional friend. I want you to know that your kindness, mannerisms and ethics are not taken for granted by God or by mankind. Please know that I speak not only from my heart but from my spirit and not only for me but from others that have the same sentiments toward you but take it for granted that their admiration and love for you needs no verbal accolades.
My prayer today is that you continue to fight on “gentle warrior”. I know the words gentle and warrior may seem to contradict each other ‘but’ in the realm of the saints it is an affirming war cry to a victorious end to an unwarranted battle. Know God is STILL right beside you and since His word says he will never leave you He has not. You are STILL a noble testimony by being STILL on this earth STILL with a sound mind. And though your physical health is not all to be desired “at this time” it is STILL far better than countless others; and praises to God your faith… Your Faith …YOUR FAITH in God is STILL unequaled in its strength and FAR EXCEEDS your offsets. Be encouraged daughter/ son of the Most High King, keep believing! (Hebrews 13:5; Isaiah 40:31)
God bless you Agape Love, Prophetess Sandra Dukes- Your sister and your friend in Christ Jesus
Hello woman of God, Blessings....The call that God has placed up on your life is his divine work what he has placed in you shall be poured out up on every seed that he has placed in others...God has given you the gift to (stir up the gift)

Lord Jesus, Your Word says that Your anointing breaks and destroys all yokes of bondage so we ask You now to cause Your anointing to break and destroy any yokes of bondages; along with all their works, roots, fruits ,tentacles, and links, in the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Break the yokes of deception, desires of the world, disbelief, disobedience, giving offense, self-hatred, self-delusion, and self- confusion, self-lust, lust of the eye, fantasy lust, manipulation, sexual idolatry, sexual immorality, fornication, molestation, rape, and oppression; and tormenting spirits in the Name of Jesus. Heavenly Father we ask You to give her deliverance and freedom from all these bondages in the Name of Christ Jesus according to John 16:23. Convict the mind and the heart of the wicked who has taken the picture of this child for exploitation, abuse, misuse and pornography. Father I ask that the law of the land would seek them out and destroy their evil work. That this child would begin to know her value to You Father God, come out of shame and sin no more; that she would receive the word of God, Your teaching, Your deliverance and become the woman of God You created her to become in Jesus’ Name I pray, Amen .
