A Word Of Warning For Believers In America
July 2020

Those who put their own political opinions, or the opinions of a President, a Minister of Religion, or a Politician BEFORE and therefore ABOVE THE TEACHINGS OF THE WORD OF GOD can no longer TRUTHFULLY call themselves FOLLOWERS of Our Lord Jesus Christ. That ‘other’ person, or the ‘Self’ is the TRUE ‘god’ of their lives for that is the voice they heed and that is the voice they obey - not the Voice Of God. “He that saith I know Him and keepeth not His commandments is a liar, and the truth is not in him. He that saith he abideth in Him, ought himself so to walk, even as he walked.” (1 John 2:4+6) “let everyone who nameth the name of Christ DEPART FROM INIQUITY.” (2 Tim 3:7)

Those who harbour hatred in their hearts for their fellowman, CEASE to be FOLLOWERS of Our Lord Jesus Christ. When asked which is the greatest of the Commandments Christ replied “Thou shalt love the Lord Thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy MIND. This is the first and great Commandment and the second is like unto it, THOU SHALT LOVE THY NEIGHBOUR AS THYSELF. On these two Commandments hang all the law and the prophets.” (Matt 22:37-40) KJV

To heed Trumps’ call ONCE was foolishness – to heed it again is to choose UNRIGHTEOUSNESS.
“No man can serve two masters: for he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. YE CANNOT SERVE GOD AND MAMMON.”(Matt 6:24) KJV

Trump represents MAMMON and more besides - MAKE NO MISTAKE - all who would “name the name of Christ” MUST NOW DRAW THAT LINE IN THE SAND, and declare as did Joshua “AS FOR ME AND MY HOUSE WE WILL SERVE THE LORD”. (Joshua 24:15) KJV

Failure to do so now will quickly bring Gods' Judgement upon you and He will not heed your cries to be delivered from the evil that will oppress your land.

“Not everyone that saith unto me Lord, Lord shall enter into the Kingdom of Heaven, but he that doeth the will of My Father which is in Heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord have we not prophesied in thy name? And in thy name have cast out devils? And in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you, depart from me, ye that work iniquity” (Matt 7:21-23) KJV

“Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.” (Matt 7:13/14) KJV

A Prophetic Word Of The Lord For America – June 2020.

The safety of the World hangs in the balance, not because of the Coronavirus but because of Donald Trump and his hate-filled followers, whether some of them presume to call themselves Christian or not. Woe betide the man or woman who aligns themselves to Donald Trump in these days for they will find themselves in defiance of God Himself and that is not a good place for them to be, regardless of whether they believe in Me or not. Men and women of America who are called by My Name must ARISE and defy the evil that this man Trump and his minions would bring on an unsuspecting World, for they know not with whom they are dealing but I DO. ARISE those who are truly called by My Name and follow Me, arise and defeat the evil among you for it is not yet time for all things to end but you can defeat the evil that is seeking to oppress and rule you in these days of hardship and horror. I will be with those who stand for ME, not those who are vile and corrupt and blaspheme My Holy Name with their doings, doings that glorify Mammon for a short while, for their days are numbered.


My heart aches for the people of America at this time, never before have we seen such outrages perpetuated by one chosen to lead their Nation. I thank our Heavenly Father for the courage and unquestionable integrity of retired Marine General and former Secretary of Defence James Mattis whom I believe to be God’s appointed man of the hour, a man of honour whose absolute loyalty and devotion to the American people and dedication to upholding and defending the American Constitution shines out of every word of his recently released statement. Please let us all support him in prayer, praying that he and others like him will make a stand for the people of America and that Gods Will will be done in the situation and healing come to the oppressed people of their Nation.
Isaiah 62:10 (KJV)
“Go through, go through the gates, prepare ye the way; cast up the stones, cast up the highway, gather up the stones; lift up a standard for the people”
James 2:5-9 (KJV)
“Hearken my beloved brethren, hath not God chosen the poor of the world rich in faith and heirs of the Kingdom which He hath promised to them that love Him? But ye have despised the poor, do not rich men oppress you and draw you before the judgement seats? Do they not blaspheme that worthy name by which ye are called? If you fulfil the royal law according to Scripture, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself, ye do well; but if you have respect to persons, ye commit sin and are convinced of the law as transgressors.”

Update 8th June 2020

I have sought God earnestly in prayer, crying out for the plight of the American people and the following Scripture was quickened to my spirit.

2 Timothy 3:1-5 (KJV)
"This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall become lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, traitors, heady, high-minded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away."

Traitor, trucebreaker, proud, unholy, blasphemer, boaster, lover of self, lover of pleasure more than lover of God, false accuser, despiser of those that are good…from such turn away.

These are words of warning, words that describe American President Donald Trump and they end with the words “from such turn away”. Believers must also “turn away” from any Pastor or Preacher who urges them to vote for such a man, for such advice is not godly and does not conform to the teachings of Holy Scripture.

I feel very strongly in my spirit that the people of America must harden their hearts against Donald Trump, turn deaf ears to his insults and lies and not be intimidated by his threats. God will protect you, turn to Him wholeheartedly and He will rid you of this man who seeks to destroy you to attain his own vision of America that is not yours. Violence and intimidation is not what he promised you, but it is what he delivers, wholeheartedly and with selfish ends in mind. Turn away from him as this scripture says, defy his persecution of the just, his vilification of those that are good and walk a straight path with God. Arise men and women of honour, take your place with the heroes of the past and let your light Shine – the light of truth and integrity, honour and faith, arise and drive out the evil in your land that abounds with dishonourable acts and hatred of the most vile kind. Rise up and free your land, God will be with you and hand you victory if you will honour Him once more.

God BLESS America!

I Have No Fear In Jesus

I have no fear in Jesus,
There is no fear in Jesus,
For there is nothing Satan can do,
To change the Victory
The Lord has Won for me,
And so to Jesus I’ll always be true.

If you should look for Him,
You’ll find Him waiting there,
To share your heavy load,
And ease your every care,
So open wide your door
And let Him Dwell in you
For in Jesus we have no fear.

So come and praise The Lord
For all He’s done for you,
His Love is Perfect,
His Love is Ever True,
So testify of Him,
Uplift His Holy Name,
For in Jesus we have no fear.

When You hung there on that Cross at Calvary
It was the generations ahead that You could see.
Men and women, girls and boys,
All deceived by Satan’s ploys,
And crying out, alone with their misery.

When You hung there on that Cross You bled for me,
Your heart ached for the pain that You could see.
You saw that desperate need,
And with Your death You sowed a seed
That would lead me straight to God through Calvary.

Despite the blackness of our hearts that You saw then,
You still cried ‘Abba, Father – I’ll die for them!
In Your compassion for man’s loss
You went so meekly to the Cross
And gladly paid the price at Calvary.

Oh, My Saviour! What a joy should fill our hearts,
For in Your Master Plan we each have parts!
We all can play a role!
We too can help men to be whole,
Through the Victory won for us at Calvary!

Christ is there for you too, in the midst of the deprivation, in the midst of the squalid living conditions, in the midst of the violence Christ The Holy Son of God is there with you, walking side by side with you.

Isaiah 53:6 KJV

“All we like sheep have gone astray: we have turned every one to his own way: and the Lord hath laid on Him the iniquity of us all”

It is a time for prayer, a time for genuinely seeking the Face of God and a time for repentance. It is a time to turn from believing the disbelieving and catastrophically false and misleading words of politicians and scientists but to return wholeheartedly to believing and trusting Our Heavenly Father who will turn all things to our advantage if we lift up Holy hands and pray. Put your trust in HIM and none other, humble yourselves before Him and intercede for your Nation and He WILL hear you.

The Journey.

Letting Go

Father, this has been a hard lesson to learn.
From windy hills and barren places
I’ve cried out to You to talk to me.
Sometimes Your answer has come so late
I have despaired, and searched my soul
For error or for sin.
I’ve stood on Your Word,
Believed in Your Provision,
And stared at the dark shadows all around me.
But suddenly in the stillness of night,
Surrounded by Your Peace,
I begin to understand.
I perceive the hold my wants and needs
Have upon me and am staggered.
Is it really so important,
What I eat, what I wear,
When You have clothed me in righteousness,
And spread out Your Table before me?
Oh Father, now I truly see,
Nothing else matters – only You.

A Life Of Praise

I place my heart between Your Hands in humble offering,
And sacrifice my will at the foot of Your Throne.
I cast aside all worldly aims and proud ambition
That I might live my life to bring glory to Your Name!
Let it be a sweet savour unto You Lord!
Let my heart beat on with Yours in one accord!
Let my lips cry out to all, my God is Worthy!
Let my life enable others to hear Your Call!
Let my heart lie next to Yours in adoration!
Let my mouth sing out anew with songs of praise!
Let Christians all around bring acclamation
To their God By Whom The Universe was made!

The Way Of The Cross

What would you have me say about serving The Lord?
That it’s fun? That it’s easy?
Should I not speak of those times of inner searching
That will cause you to cry out as one in torment?
Nor mention those occasions when your heart will ache,
And you will thirst as one lost amidst the deserts dry and gritty dunes,
Fearing you will never hear His Voice again?
Moments when the aridity of the Wilderness,
Or the depths of the Valley seem too great for your soul to bear?
Yet if I speak not of these things how do I help you?
For you must crave what lies beyond the pain of these experiences,
And discover for yourself the perfection of His Salvation
And the nature of His Greater Plan for you, and all mankind.
Victory lies waiting at the end of your particular tunnel
If you will but pass through it.
If we would have Him change our wooden vessels into chalices
Of gold we must realise that we too must pay a price.
We who earnestly seek to hear the very heart-beat of our Living God
Must also be prepared to spend our time in Gethsemane,
And having endured Gethsemane still have the courage and devotion
To go on to our own personal Calvary.
Only if we have done all these things shall we even begin
To perceive the Wonder of our God, or the Nature of His Love for us.
Shall I tell you that it’s easy…or shall I simply say He’s worth any

Scaling The Peak

Each move I make is another step
Along Your special path,
So many steps must still be made,
And sometimes the climbing seems hard,
But when I reach that shining peak
Where I will meet my Lord,
How tiny will those steps appear
When compared with my reward!

The High Places

It’s easy to delight in Him in the midst of the Golden Field, ripe and scented with the
sweet aroma of herbs and flowers, but it’s not so easy to believe and trust when we
find ourselves on the rocky outcrop to which that sweet-smelling field leads.
We gaze silently at its bleak and barren aspect and turning our heads look back
upon the path our feet so recently travelled with such joy and gladness.
The way ahead does not look welcoming. Can it be the right path we wonder?
Should we, can we, go further? Yes, the path IS there but it is here that we must put
down all our talents and ‘works’ for Him, together with our fanciful imaginings of
glory and power, and gazing steadfastly at Him learn to WAIT and to HEAR until
we are sure we are following His leading and not secretly seeking to exalt ourselves
in our ‘service’ to Him. When we have truly seen ourselves in relation to our work
He shows us we can pick up those burdens again if we will, but now we will know
more clearly what to take. Sorrowfully we look upon Pride and Ambition, knowing
now what a large part they played in getting us thus far when all along we thought we
were being pure and holy. We turn from these and look at the other burdens we
carried up to this point, self-esteem and hidden sin, carefully concealed avarice
and greed, and we feel no desire for these things either. So what is left? We bend
down and pick up that one remaining package we still feel we need, the one
marked ‘Knowledge’ and we carry it for a while. Knowledge of HIM is first borne,
then known in the mind, but then when it is experienced, head knowledge must
be discarded,
for we no longer need ‘knowledge’ when He is truly IN us, our faith is no
longer a burden to be carried like a Cross upon our backs, we ARE faith!
When God shines in us, through us, people will look at us and perceive HIM in all
His Beauty and they will fall down and CRY to know the Living God. Only
then shall we truly be vessels, only then are we full of His Life not our own.
That last parcel called ‘knowledge’ was discarded along the way when we started to be
what our earthbound selves merely had us doing and saying. The external façade
has at last become an internal reality, but one unpolluted by earthbound ideals.
We shall walk in His strength not our own, and see through His Eyes with new
compassion and new understanding both the sins of our fellowman and our own.

The toll of city life today and the ACTUAL price we pay!


The world is full of aching hearts,
Full of fear, dulled hope and pain;
People afraid to count the cost,
Merely hoping it’s not in vain.
So many are trapped in emptiness,
They’re the lost in hot pursuit
Of imagined prizes and worthless goals,
Idols held in high repute.
How God must weep as He watches
While they seek as their common goal
The riches of a transient world,
Not Salvation for the soul.
When will they see the futility
Of their endless toil and strife?
One day they’ll see what their idols cost –
The Gift of Eternal Life!

© Sylvia Darling 2019

“Aching hearts, full of fear, dulled hope and pain”, those few words describe the way far too many of us live our lives today, refusing to admit what it actually does cost us physically, emotionally, spiritually, just to get through another day. We know in our hearts that it is all in vain, that tomorrow will be exactly the same, and the day after that, and the day after that. The Apostle Paul wrote that “Spiritual truths are spiritually discerned”, but few of us today are really looking for spiritual solutions for problems we perceive as belonging to our Modern World, and far too complex for God to be the only answer we need. I did too. I had no-one to open my eyes to the truth, to guide my feet along the right path. I met with God when I was very, very small, too young to understand all I needed to understand so of course I stumbled and fell very often as I grew up. My childhood was not a happy one and even when I was young I would wonder ‘What is the point? Why am I here? Why was I ever even born?’, but even though I wandered far from God feeling lonely and afraid, I later discovered that He had never ONCE let go of my hand, although I had most certainly let go of His! Why not spend a little time with me on my other website too, sylviadarling.com perhaps sharing some of my heartache and despair will help you find healing and explanations for your own. I promise you it’s not a BORING read and it’s only a click away…JOIN ME, you have absolutely nothing to lose and so very much to gain!

This months' instalment of "Lost and Found, The Other Side Of Me" can be viewed   here.


Past memories and experiences come painfully to the fore as I again encounter the same depth of disdain and rejection flowing from my Mother that she had previously shown me during my years at the Home. Our ‘new beginning’ was becoming ominously reminiscent of a rather horrible past.

Missed an instalment? Can't wait to see what happens next? Catch up on sylviadarling.com or download the e-book "Lost and Found, The Other Side Of Me" in the Inspirational Section.

Uplifting and inspiring Christian Verse


Friendship is a marvellous thing,
A rarity to find !
The meeting of a kindred soul,
A matching of the mind.
A common understanding
When no words need be said,
This is what we yearn for,
Else a part of us lies dead.

Emotions that are never aired,
Like many hurts never shared,
Are seldom fully understood,
To analyse together is good.
Comparison perspective brings
Then once again the spirit sings,
Such are the benefits friendship can give,
So stretch out your hand and start to live !

The Lord would always have us reach out to our Christian brothers and sisters, especially in times of need or those moments of despair we all experience from time to time. Follow the leading of the Holy Spirit in your heart and don’t let timidity hold you back.
