Episode 15
Short reason to be interested in upcoming book A Prisoner's Pardon. There was another Chicago cop shooting and there is blame put on its guns and it's the CPD. Again it is this blame shifting. I specifically address the truth and show it being played within my own family. I'm tired of the black on black crime and people not addressing it. It's time for me to stop being afraid to talk about it and do something.

Davis  Topics – The secret, how to find it, the value, and keeping it.  Paul’s assertion in Phil 4:12 “In any and all circumstances I have learned to be content.”  Point 1:  What is this contentment?

Episode 8
Quick recap on why show was started. Inspired by my upcoming book Prisoner's Pardon. Book due out this Fall. We recognize the need for prison reform in the physical sense and understand men and women are locked up due to the breakdown of the family. Specifically, the missing father who is the leader of the home is not there to carryout his duties as a father. The Bible calls him the strong man. It's stated in Mark 3:27 (NKJV - No one can enter a strong man's house and plunder his goods, unless he first binds the strong man. And then he will plunder his house.) The main point of podcast is to bring attention to saints those who are now regenerated (born again) by Christ is the strong man too. We are being bound up and held in a spiritual prison and now need prison reform in the spiritual sense. The pardon given by Christ is the answer for this just as it is for when we first got saved. Our binding as saints is our testimony. The enemy steals our testimony. We have to recognize this is what he is doing because he understands if he can shut us down, we won't get our full reward and that includes saving others. This is critical about this binding listen to what it says in Mathew. In Mathew 18:18 NKJ it says, "Assuredely, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven." Because we are bound he is able to steal from us and this effects the very world we live in. There is hope and it's the only way. It is God's plan for perfect reform. Call it a reform bill if you like. The Bible says in Rev. 12:11 ...And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death. This verse is the foundational verse for the podcast and for everything Princess Pen underwrites.

Episode 7
Window of Opportunity  I’ve been seeing this a lot lately in my own life as well as in others.     When one is in a spiritual prison or even physical one, they miss these windows of opportunities.    What is a window of opportunity?  A window of opportunity is a short, often fleeting time period during which a rare and desired action can be taken. Once the window closes, the opportunity may never come again.  Important points to look at so we understand the significance of not missing it.    Point 1 – Short  Point 2 – Rare  Point 3 – Opportunity – desired action    Bible reference to a window of opportunity:  John 5:1-9 - For an angel went down at a certain season into the pool, and troubled the water; whosever then first after the troubling of the water stepped in was made whole of whatsoever disease he had.  One can be in a prison so long that they become institutionalize and no longer think like a free person would. They will never see these windows or if they see it they don’t even try anymore. No hope.    In Christ there is hope:  If we’re in Christ we are free and no one can shut the door which God has opened  Revelation 3:8  “I know your works. See, I have set before you an open door, and no one can shut it;    There is hope – Jesus asked him “do you want to be made well?”  The most important opportunity of one’s life is this one....John 3:16   16 For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life   Opportunities: My flowers I picked in my backyard – rare because no flower pedal is the same  Accepting Christ  Obedient  Pushing the button for the Podcast  Stepping out in faith    When you miss these opportunities – recognize, ask for forgiveness, repent and then start obeying.   For more information on the show and host, please visit http://www.kingdomprincesspen.com/ (www.kingdomprincesspen.com) Thank you for listening.

Episode 1
Welcome to our first show for Prisoner's Pardon Podcast hosted by Michi-J. The episode talks about the inspiration for the show, why you should listen and also encourage others. The podcast is an outgrowth of the book A Prisoner's Pardon book due out Fall 2021. The memoir book authored by Michi-J describes her search for an answer to recidivism that is repeat offenders going back and forth to prison. Her twin brother for over 30 years has been in this cycle and now is presently in prison. During her search, she found that she just like her twin was in a prison and was going back and forth as well. Her prison was different because it was spiritual. Although, no bars, it's effects were the same. She was in a continual cycle of frustration and despair at not being able to complete some important missions. The podcast reveals what spiritual prisons are, the enemy behind it and how to avoid his captivity. Most people are unaware of spiritual prisons because its invisible. Although, very similar to physical prisons, there are some differences that one should know.
