Greetings in the name of OUR LORD!
Long ago, God gave me a word that was:
"If the suffering had NOT been great, the ministry would not be great."
My Calling into the Ministry
My life has not been an easy one, but the Lord YAHUSHUA gave me a word that said "be not ashamed of your past but use it for YAHUSHUA's glory to be a witness for Him, bringing souls to YAHUSHUA." I have never known a mother's or father's love, or that of a sister or brother, aunt or uncle, cousin, or grandma, and grandpa. In this world till I married, I was ALONE but I knew there was a God and YAHUSHUA...that He was someone that died 2,000 years ago at Calvary. No one ever told me He could be my best friend and his Holy Spirit would live in me or that I didn't have to be perfect for YAHUSHUA to love me. I was judged because I was a nobody in this world, no family, and a mother that was sent to jail for child abuse and child neglect and attempted murder on me. I was thrown from one foster home to another, afraid to disobey, and trying to be everything everyone wanted me to be, but always feeling like I didn't belong anywhere. As soon as the newness wore off at the foster homes, I was discarded like the garbage on Friday, picked up by a social case worker.
My mom always said I was not worthy of anyone to love me or care. I was the rotten apple that spoiled the rest. I was sexually abused, molested, raped as a child by my mother's husbands, boyfriends, step-brothers, and of course, by her. She hated me and never so much as put her arms around me that I can remember. I learned very young not to trust anyone. I learned very young that I hated myself and life. I attempted suicide many times while still a young child, walking in front of moving cars, overdosing pills at the age of 8.
Much damage had been done to me, so at the age of 10, my mother's boyfriend had a nephew and introduced my husband, who was very controlling, cold, distant and much older than me. My mother wanted to get rid of me; I was a constant reminder she was getting older as I got older. I was taken from her and became a ward of the court and because they didn't know what else to do with me, I married at a very young age. My husband became my father, and because of the age difference, he totally dominated me in every way, yet I was a possession not knowing love, only abuse in a worse form, both mentally and physically, sexually. I won't go into details but the first week we were married, I attempted suicide because he committed adultery. After that (between miscarriages, suicide attempts, and breakdowns), that was my life for 6 years till I found YAHUSHUA.... or I should say YAHUSHUA found me.
The last suicide attempt, I had taken a bottle of Seconal (100mgs) after my husband had cheated on me once again and said he wasn't coming back. I came the closest I ever came to dying... even had an out of body experience. I won't go into that but I will say I prayed while I lay dying and said "YAHUSHUA, just tell me why you didn't love me before you throw me into Hell?? Please just send someone to hold my hand while I am dying." I will never forget that prayer cause I lay there from noon till midnight, three days from my birthday, between consciousness and unconsciousness, only reviving long enough to vomit, and lay in my vomit as I passed out again.
How anyone found me NO ONE understands to this day! It was a miracle but the police broke down the door, and YAHUSHUA was there all along answering my prayer, holding my hand though I did not know it. I was put in intensive care and 72 hour round the clock watch, but no one was there to watch me, except nurses. No visitors; even my husband was angry and refused to visit me, saying he had to work to pay the hospital bill I caused. I didn't leave a suicide note, so my husband forced the hospital to release me to his custody. I was still underage. When I came home, it was on my birthday April 4, the day I should have been buried. It was Easter time also. I was so heartbroken; no one cared it was my birthday. I tried to take my life the day I was released from hospital but my husband took the gun away. I had an ER doctor who told me the next time I wanted to kill myself, do it right and walk in front of a train where no one will be able to pick up the pieces. I am convinced that Satan sent that doctor to me. One year later, I remembered that doctor's words and that's what I intended to do since we lived out in the country by the railroad tracks. But instead YAHUSHUA had other plans.
A friend of my husband (a lady he knew and grew up with, and later committed adultery with while she pretended to lead him to the LORD) called me on the phone the night I planned on killing myself and invited me to my first Pentecostal church. I went to say goodbye to God, figuring maybe He would be there. Instead, the preacher gave a word of knowledge and talked about someone who planned on killing their self and telling that person, "YAHUSHUA said don't do it!", He loved that person, and wanted to use them for His glory. He asked who that person was and to come forward and give their life to YAHUSHUA. I DID! Then he asked who didn't have the baptism of the Holy Ghost with evidence of speaking in tongues to raise their hand. I raised my hand and said "I don't know what it is but if it's from YAHUSHUA, I want it!" Boy, did I get it! YAHUSHUA showed me a light in my eyes and said I could never hate myself again cause if I did, since His Spirit was in me, I would be hating Him also. For the first time in my life, I thought I was pretty. Never again were there suicide attempts, I had a purpose and that was to Love people, in a way I never knew, and make sure people know how much YAHUSHUA loves them, and how to give their lives to YAHUSHUA and get saved, sanctified, filled with the Holy Ghost.
That was 25 years ago, and the fire in my bones just got hotter, my zeal for my Lord YAHUSHUA knows no limits. I love YAHUSHUA and He is my ONE and ONLY TRUE LOVE ABOVE ALL ELSE. My main desire is to serve Him all the days of my life... to help people anyway I can, in ways no one ever helped me. To be there and comfort the broken abused body of YAHUSHUA and let them know it's the devil that is beating up on them, NOT YAHUSHUA HaMashiach. Many times God has used me to stop men and women from killing themselves, as I share my testimony. They end up getting saved, and even my suicide attempts (before I knew YAHUSHUA) served a purpose. I am called to minister the gospel of YAHUSHUA HaMashiach with the anointing power of the Holy Ghost. My goal is to see millions saved, sanctified, and filled with Holy Ghost manifested power. I strive to obey YAHUSHUA and put Him first in my life in every way. I love and worship Him and try to keep Him first in my private life, and ministry, doing all I can to reach the abused, beaten, feeling forsaken, and unloved, rejected, body of YAHUSHUA... to prove YAHUSHUA HaMashiach really does love them, and died and arose on the third day and He would have done the same thing if it had only been ONE person who accepted him. I want them to know the Word of God can't lie, and teach them, and pray with them, and most of all, love them. I have tried hard to always hear the sweet Holy Spirit's voice and feel privileged when He uses this broken vessel of clay to bring the lost to YAHUSHUA, and bind up their wounds, proving to them YAHUSHUA is alive and still Reigns, and He Loves Us, and cares about anything we care about.
I want to be used to bring YAHUSHUA HaMashiach praise, honor, and glory as we see souls saved, delivered, healed, through the Name, Word, and Blood of YAHUSHUA HaMashiach, proving God really can do all things through YAHUSHUA HaMashiach that strengthens me. When I minister I expect miracles, and get them for YAHUSHUA' glory. My life has changed much in these 21 years but the calling has not. Perhaps if my life had not been what it has been, I would not have the compassion I have when I minister and there are few shoes that I have NOT walked in so I can identify with their pain. YAHUSHUA HaMashiach is my Lord and Savior and I want to teach others what God has taught me, so they can teach others the awesome wonder of the God we serve.
The calling God has placed on my life is that of evangelist, which I have been for 21 years, making my life worth something of value, using it to bring the lost to YAHUSHUA. Also for last 10 years, I have been a lay pastor where the Lord has used me to minister. Now international minister and ordained pastor, office of prophet and bride of YAHUSHUA HaMashiach. A fisher of men and women, and teach the word, and counsel using the gifts of the Holy Spirit. I have also been blessed with prophetic gifts; and signs, wonders and miracles have followed this ministry for YAHUSHUA's glory, cause I am nothing without YAHUSHUA. It's HIS Holy Spirit's anointing that breaks the shackles, yokes, and bondage's off his people. Now my partner in the ministry and I are going to buy a building and have been told by God although we were ordained by YAHUSHUA, we are now to become ordained by man also.
I am a woman and I have been judged for my blonde hair, makeup, slacks... outward appearance. Some ministers have even said I wasn't allowed to minister in their churches till I had no makeup on! I am grateful the Lord showed me it's not the cleanliness of a woman's skin (whether she has makeup and mascara on), but the cleanliness of her HEART! My heart was cleansed 21 years ago and still is cleansed with the Cleansing Blood of YAHUSHUA HaMashiach. I have found the worst abuse and lack of love comes from behind the pulpits, jealous for the strong anointing, and gifts.... covetousness; and many pastors don't believe God speaks out of women prophets or in a woman ministering, especially as a pastor. But I continue to do what I have been called to do, and He continues to use me for YAHUSHUA's glory. I am sent to the people and NOT to the Pastors. The people always receive me in love and I try not to be hurt and forgive the pastors who have treated me so terribly. I will let God be their judge and let them learn from their mistakes. Instead, I refuse to judge people by their outward appearances, color of skin, for black pastors have resented me cause I am so white.
I think it's Gods sense of humor, making me what Satan fears the most... a Holy Spirit filled Pastor! Also a gospel songwriter and singer. Satan tried so hard to destroy me, but this only produced crushing of the grapes which brought forth NEW WINE in the form of delivering, anointed songs. See? All things do truly work together for good to those who love God, and are called according to HIS PURPOSE. YAHUSHUA knew in the end He would win, thereby proving I am more then a conqueror through YAHUSHUA HaMashiach my Lord!
I believe the only purpose in my life was to be what I am now. An anointed servant, disciple, and child of the King of Kings and Lord of Lords! YAHUSHUA HaMashiach. Is there any higher calling then this? I think NOT! A broken vessel of clay but a mighty warrior for YAHUSHUA HaMashiach, I am called to preach the Gospel to the four corners of the EARTH; to all races, kindred, and tongues. God has shown me the color of the skin is NOT important when I see people I only see if they are RED, covered in the shed Blood of YAHUSHUA HaMashiach! OUR YAHUSHUA Messiah! I have been chosen to be pastor over many churches. Please pray for me that I will always hear the voice of OUR LORD and SAVIOR YAHUSHUA HaMashiach and do His perfect will, accomplishing what He created me for. I was told I can never lay down this ministry for it is my identity, who I am is a broken vessel of God YAHUVEH but a mighty warrior for YAHUSHUA HaMashiach (YAHUSHUA Messiah) Rev.

Why I Call Myself Rev. Elisabeth Sherrie Elijah
(it's my NAME!)
This is questions and answers for those who wanted to know, and are afraid to ask. I am posting it at the web site. Someone actually wrote me and asked ALL these questions, he wouldn't post the prophecies till he got the answers. The Holy Spirit convicted him. He later took them down anyway. He said I wasn't meant to be on the internet only one on one to the people. But I am doing this BOTH ways as the Good Lord commanded me. He will be accountable to the LORD for his unloving attitude, as I am held accountable for forgiving him, that's why I deleted his name to prove it.
Praise YAHUSHUA! At least 3 people that day, big web sites ministries, wrote me and said the Holy Spirit said to post the prophecies to the people! What the enemy meant for EVIL YAHUSHUA turned it around for the GOOD!
Even these questions that hurt me, now I have a purpose for answering them. YAHUSHUA does NOT waste anything or anyone! Blessed be the name of the LORD!
His first question was about my last name. Is it truly Elijah by birth or marriage, or is it a taken name? It's the name of my earthly father! (maiden name). 2. The second question is about pride. Are you afflicted by the spirit of pride in your life? Has the enemy led you to strive for more than the Lord has called you to do? Right now are you leading with His Holy Spirit telling you what to do? Will they say that this is from the Lord, or from you?
IF you read my testimony, you have seen I have NO pride. I am less then NOTHING and the only value I have is the Holy Spirit that uses this vessel of clay for YAHUSHUA HaMashiach's Glory. I have suffered much, and still do, for God said, if the suffering had not been GREAT this ministry would NOT be GREAT! He uses this vessel of clay, with so many wounds and cracks, that the world tried to toss out and label TRASH! But YAHUSHUA takes this vessel when there is so many better looking, higher educated, more qualified, and yet USES this vessel to pour out his anointing to the people and NOT waste a drop! For YAHUSHUA HaMashiach's Glory Alone!
The anointing comes forth from the pitcher and never comes out of the cracks but from the mouth of the one pitcher, for the one who pours the anointing in me, is able to contain in the vessel, and able to pour it forth from this vessel, because HE IS GOD ALMIGHTY and in my weakness His strength is shown forth. People realize it is NOT of me, but of the Holy Spirit that these gifts come forth. As he uses me, He proves he can use ANYONE that yields themselves to be USED for YAHUSHUA's glory! YAHUSHUA uses me and speaks forth out of me, because HE chooses too, No other reason. I am his child, saved with his blood like anyone else. There is a high price to pay for the anointing. The greater the anointing the greater the price. The servant is NOT greater then HIS or HER master YAHUSHUA HaMashiach.
This testimony is tame, compared to what is left unspoken and will one day be written for YAHUSHUA's glory and so others will see I am walking in many peoples shoes, few pastors have walked. I wouldn't wish my life on my worst enemy, except for salvation and being used of God to minister to multitudes, it has not been a Happy life. (few know this) It has been prophesied the BEST is YET to come! Where I have known the worst in a husband, I will know the BEST! So I await this blessing believing I serve a God that can not LIE! It will come to pass in his timing.
4. Has the enemy led you to strive for more than the Lord has called you to do? Right now are you leading with His Holy Spirit telling you what to do? Will they say that this is from the Lord, or from you? It has been prophesied that I have only started to do what the Holy Spirit has confirmed, that I am ordained to do. I am grateful that seldom does anyone accuse me of speaking these words from the FLESH, for I know I couldn't speak such words. They have the anointing of the Holy Spirit on them, and the People recognize it. I recognize it, and I am humbled to be used like this.
For again why he chose me I don't have any idea. This Church Site will be in all languages should the LORD tarry in coming back, it has been confirmed, and if you want I can send you the email from others with gifts of the Holy Spirit that I have a High calling on my life and that of a Apostle including prophet. Yes I know the world calls me a prophetess, but the Holy Spirit does NOT see gender, just who is a willing to be used for YAHUSHUA HaMashiach's Glory!
I am humbled that I was chosen for this task as God Almighty's Mouth-Piece. Multitudes of testimonies of people hearing the voice of the LORD through these prophecies NOT my words. Like you did also. I leave my motives to the LORD YAHUSHUA to vindicate me for he knows I ONLY seek to serve him, and Worship him, and lead others to the Only God of Salvation! YAHUSHUA HaMashiach of Calvary! My greatest goal in life is to hear well done thou good and faithful servant enters now in the rest! Praise YAHUSHUA! I have a job to do though and won't be able to go home till I finish what Daddy God ordained, and decreed for me to accomplish for YAHUSHUA HaMashiach's Glory alone.
5. Are you a true Reverend? Or is this title something that you have taken on yourself? Is the title Reverend suitable for a child of the King? I must know the answer to this with your explanation of the usage of the Word and why it applies to you. Reverend means Revered, is this what you are trying to be? Will it separate you from God's children, keep you unity with them?
YES I am a ordained minister. International minister which means I am licensed to preach the gospel to the world...of course evading communist countries unless YAHUSHUA tells me otherwise. I was ordained last Nov.. If I had a scanner I would scan it for you. But my word is good enough for I am saying all of this under the witness of the God I serve, and worship. YAHUSHUA HaMashiach of Calvary and Nazareth. I have taken a non-denominational license because denominations only separate man.... again read the testimony it will answer your questions. I don't even take the tax-exempt status, because God won't let me! Government will but the God I serve won't! I depend on Jehovah Jireh to be my Lord and provider and he ALONE is the one. I operate on love offerings, which are few and far between. Anyone who gives to this ministry gets rewards from God Almighty himself! Not from the Government!
The LORD said truly if I take that tax-exempt status then that will be my only reward financially. For by not taking it I am remaining faithful to what the Holy Spirit has spoken through me in prophecies. This is NOT the way I would do things, but then this is NOT my way but YAHUSHUA HaMashiach's way alone that is to be done. When the tax exempt status is taken away, I won't have to panic and learn how to operate a ministry.
Without it, I have been doing it all along! Relying on My Daddy God to supply all my needs according to HIS riches in Heaven. Every prophecy that is given to me, amazes me even more then ALL of you are amazed. I am told I and its been confirmed that I am to assemble the troops on the wall. This is 500,000 Gideon Warriors for YAHUSHUA HaMashiach! This is the warriors around the world.
I have had two dreams back to back, (Jan.21, 1997) and then another. Much confirmation. They will be gathered through this Church site and from many different parts of the World. What they are to accomplish.
And the dream will be included after why I call myself Reverend? Again whatever I send you feel free to post if you so choose. My life must be Holy and acceptable before the God I serve. There can be NO shame in this ministry, for I am held accountable for the High calling he has given me. I did NOT ask for this, I question God why me?
Then I am reminded he is the POTTER and I am but the CLAY, he molds me the way he wants to and I do NOT have any say in how that is done. OK read why I call myself Rev. below for these answers came.
To me while praying if I should continue keeping Rev. before my name. I wonder if you would have cared to ask this question if I had been a man and NOT a woman.
My maiden name is Elijah but anyone can carry that name, look at Cher's boy (singer, actor) she has a son named Elijah Blue! So its NOT the name but the SPIRIT behind the NAME! I choose to USE my name to bring praise, honor, and glory to YAHUSHUA HaMashiach alone! To serve him! And worship and put HIM first in all I do! I go by the name my earthly father gave me but again its how I use that name that is more important, do I Glorify YAHUSHUA, or shame him?
I believe my life Glorifies and lifts up the name above ALL names YAHUSHUA HaMashiach of Calvary and Nazareth! Now as for your questioning who made me a prophet? read the bible esp. ACTS and you will see I am anointed by the Holy Ghost! This is NOT something man does! But Father God does! The Holy Ghost has given me the anointing for five-fold ministry, the apostle?s gifts.
As to who calls me Rev., its on my ministers license and I felt uncomfortable being called Reverend also till YAHUSHUA and I had a heart to heart talk, this is what the word Rev. means when I hear it or USE it. I don't care what others meaning is, only what the LORD YAHUSHUA and I know what it means.
IT'S Personal to me, and very Holy For it reminds me of my High calling. I am NOT the one Revered! it is the Lord YAHUSHUA HaMashiach of CALVARY and Nazareth that alone that I Revere, Worship ,serve, obey, love, My LORD, Savior, and Master! I REVERENCE his HOLY WORD, his entire word! Not compromising it.
I reverence his SAVING, DELIVERING, HEALING, ANOINTED BLOOD THAT WAS SHED FOR ME AT CALVARY! HIS ANOINTING, HIS SWEET HOLY SPIRIT MY COMFORTER, AND TEACHER. I REVERENCE FATHER GOD YAHUVEH! WHO GAVE HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON SO I COULD BE SAVED! The word Rev. reminds me of this every time I write it, or see it! The Holy Spirit told me I was to use this word and explain the reason why in this context. Perhaps you?re beginning to understand. Many other pastors wrote me and said thank you! I have the email to prove it. Because they had felt comfortable using Rev. and not known why, now they knew why.
I REVERE YAHUSHUA HaMashiach OF CALVARY AND NAZARETH WHO CAME IN THE FLESH IN THE FORM OF A BABY BIRTHED FROM A VIRGIN NAMED MARY! The ONLY intercessor before the Father God YAHUVEH! The ONLY TRUTH, THE LIFE, THE WAY TO HEAVEN! This is what it means to me! a reminder of Who I REVERE! If others don't understand it?s their problem for all is well with my soul, and motivations.
The Name Rev. is on my minister?s license, but why they chose to put it there as a title I only know why I have accepted it! The Holy Spirit has told me to accept it for all these reasons. He writes this through me now. MAN can take my minister?s license! But my title Reverend will remain the same for again my God has told me what this name is to mean to me! NOT man. The word Rev. before my name is an AWESOME! HUMBLE responsibility to get others to REVERENCE the same LORD and SAVIOR I serve! A REMINDER of WHO I SERVE AND REVERENCE AND OBEY! I don't take the task of being a pastor lightly, or carrying that name Rev. Sherrie Elijah! Holy Sprit said, "I am licensed by man! Ordained by GOD! YAHUSHUA HaMashiach! Father God YAHUVEH, and the Holy Spirit!"
Every time I see this word REV. I am reminded of being ordained and called, trusted of Father God Almighty Himself how I must not let YAHUSHUA down, or his people.
How I am commanded and ordained to bring the lost to YAHUSHUA, be his Mouthpiece, and preach the Gospel of YAHUSHUA HaMashiach in other words ordained to do Isaiah 61 and Feed his SHEEP. To be Rev. means being a finger to point the way to the ONLY one that is to be Revered YAHUSHUA HaMashiach OF CALVARY AND NAZARETH!
If the person who ordained me disagrees with me they can take my license its only a piece of paper. But I have a higher calling I am ORDAINED by Father God YAHUVEH and YAHUSHUA anointed of the Holy Spirit, The name Rev. means: Who I revere NOT who I am! Other then that, I have a God who is depending on me to do what I was ordained and created to do. This name constantly reminds me of the Holy call of being a Pastor to His people, to comfort and love, teach them and be a blessing to His People.
I could say the word Pastor but I am not a Pastor to everyone, only those God sends me to ....but Rev. Sherrie Elijah stands for something even more. It reminds me of the awesome responsibility I have been given, a Holy one and I must NOT let down the ONE and ONLY one I REVERE! The Holy Trinity my YAHUSHUA HaMashiach of CALVARY and NAZARETH!
I am nobody but a sinner saved by the grace and blood of the ONE I REVERE! Others may take offense at the title but I am doing what the Holy Spirit has told me to do. That is their problem, not mine. Mine is TO OBEY and be held accountable for what I know.
Now, let the Holy Spirit confirm in you whether this be mere words or the truth. I will let him vindicate me if he so chooses in your eyes. I will remain Rev. Sherrie Elijah just the same. Let me know what you decide. Please re read the prophecies and forget a woman gave it to you, and instead hear the Spirit of the LORD through the words speaking. I am only the earpiece that hears his voice speaking through the Holy Spirits mouthpiece, hear what God has spoken to my spirit, and the internet is the telephone wires that takes it to the people! I praise YAHUSHUA that I have been allowed to be used to gather in the end time harvest! because I know how much I Worship him, how much I desire to be his handmaiden his Helper anyway I can.
I pray this has answered some of your questions. Anyone has anymore questions and I feel led to answer them by the Power of the Holy Spirit I will. Joel 2 says in the end times he will pour out his spirit on all flesh, and his handmaidens will prophecy. I am merely one of those handmaidens. Blessed be the name of our Sweet, Loving, Lord YAHUSHUA HaMashiach! To HIM alone be all the Praise, Honor, and glory.
Please YAHUSHUA use this to bring peace to the people who are surrounded by evil wolves in sheep's clothing, false prophets, and evil shepherds! Give them peace as they read this and let them know by your Holy Spirit I am NOT like these Wolves in sheep's clothing come to devour the lambs! I am NOT the good shepherd! There is BUT ONE! I merely point the way to the ONLY good Shepherd, which is YOU YAHUSHUA HaMashiach of Calvary and Nazareth! but I ask that you let your Spirit shine forth in me so that the people will not see me, but let them see the light of YAHUSHUA HaMashiach in me.
I am NOT a little GOD! I will NOT blaspheme to say such a thing as so many are saying in the pulpits now! I am only a sinner saved by grace, NOT by my works unless any man boasts! it is a right relationship with YOU alone YAHUSHUA, that I will see Heaven or any of US! Help me to do all I was created and ordained to do for your PRAISE, HONOR, and Glory alone YAHUSHUA! in your Name I ask it YAHUSHUA!
Love from a Vessel of Clay but a Mighty Warrior of YAHUSHUA HaMashiach!
For I stand NOT by my strength or might but by the power of the HOLY GHOST!
In the name of YAHUSHUA Messiah, The Blood of YAHUSHUA Messiah is against you Satan!
Apostle Elisabeth (Elisheva) Elijah
