Since I was a little girl I was very interested in the "unseen" world of the Spirit. I had heard my father (Harry Ararat Mushegan) speak of the Armenian people (he is the child of Armenian immigrant parents) and how they had suffered for their faith in Jesus Christ. I wanted to live my life with that level of devotion. I knew that they must have had great faith to be able to lay their lives on the line for their love of the Savior. I knew that I could do no less than they had done. I wanted to know Christ as they had known Him.
As I grew into an adolescent I developed a great interest into the "paranormal." I did not realize that the pursuit of such knowledge--when it is not directed by the Holy Spirit--can lead you places you never wanted to be. I experienced great spiritual pressure--I am sure that this was meant by the Enemy to either send me down the wrong path or to scare me away from pursuing further knowledge about the "unseen." Thankfully, the Holy Spirit began to direct me into the knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ and to the eternal world to which He has given us access.
At the age of 16, the Lord called me to be His voice in this world (called to preach!). I didn't tell anyone, fearing that they might not understand. I continued on with my life, trying to keep the desire to preach back in the recesses of my mind. I went to college (Agnes Scott College) and graduated with a degree in Psychology and a degree in Sociology (I later received a Master's Degree in community counseling from Georgia State University and the Psychological Studies Institute). Although the subject of Psychology still interested me, I could not ignore the fact that it just didn't offer true answers to the human problem. I am not against these disciplines--they have their place. But as for me, I am a servant of the Lord Jesus Christ called to speak on His behalf. Nothing else will do. I "preach" when I can and look for the day when I have more opportunities to do so. My husband, Dan, cheers me on, as do my wonderful (preachers-in-their-own-right) sons, Nathan and Noah.
CAN YOU TAKE DICTATION?
I have always enjoyed getting sermons together but a few years ago the Lord began to deal with me in a different way. Often (not always) He will "dictate" a prophetic word or lesson to me. Sometimes He gives me the exact words and other times He gives me "impressions" that I find words to convey. This isn't a "spooky" process--He simply speaks to my inner spirit by way of the Holy Spirit. I count it a privilege and a great honor to be used in this way. Now, I want to give you an example that will help you understand how the impression form of communication works.
Let's say that I, as your boss, have seen your office or cubicle and have determined that it is unacceptable in appearance.Now, there are at least two ways that I could communicate my directive to you concerning the condition of your workspace.First, I could describe (with words) to you what I have observed and then instruct you (with words) what I want to see done about the situation.On the other hand, I could send you a digital photo of how your workspace looks accompanied by another digital image of a neat, professional-looking workspace.I guarantee you that you would get the same message from both of my communications with you.However, one used only words, and the other used no words.Now, also imagine that I send a third type of message in which I say something like, "Workers who do not respect their work space are in danger of termination."You still got the point, right?
As I can, I post some of these lessons on this website. I list the topics as the names of separate pages for ease of navigation. In addition to the written lessons I provide video and/or audio in which I am ministering on these topics.
Please accept this humble offering from me to you. I ask nothing in return.
