Jennifer Lynn Easton Joy
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I have appointed you a prophet to the nations. Then I said, ‘Alas, LORD GOD! Behold, I do not know how to speak, Because I am a youth.’ But the LORD said to me, ‘Do not say, ‘I am a youth,’ Because everywhere I send you, you shall go, and all that I command you, you shall speak. Do not be afraid of them, For I am with you to deliver you,’ declares the LORD” (Jeremiah 1:5-8, NASB).
The name Jennifer means “to be set apart” in the Hebrew language. Although, I was not a youth in my chronological years, I felt completely incapable and certainly unqualified for what the LORD asked. In the previous year, I was introduced to prophetic worship instruments and found them to be an unknown foreign language. Then HE asked me to make one, which I did not know how to do. I sat on the floor of my furniture-less apartment the consequence of a previous unprecedented storm and waited. HIS presence tangibly arrived. He instructed me with every single meticulous detail of creating Prophetic Worship Glory Rings with HIS own unique pattern. Over the course of the year, I made eight personal Prophetic Worship Glory Rings, sitting at HIS feet, listening to HIS voice, embraced by HIS presence. The Holy Spirit requested that I remove all secular media influences from my life (movies, newspapers, magazines, books, TV) and to just spend time studying the Scriptures and worshiping my King YESHUA. It was an in-depth season of HIS impartation. The Holy Spirit mentioned that there were some Integrity Tests in my future which were related to my gainful employment situations. Sometimes when a person stands for truth, they are terminated from employment in hopes that what they uncovered will remain covered.
In December, the Holy Spirit asked me to make 50 Finger Prophetic Worship Glory Rings (one-inch brass rings with eight quarter inch and one-eighth inch ribbons) and to give with a “very rough draft” of the booklet, Have Glory Ring will Travel! instead of the traditional holiday greeting cards. Surprised and overwhelmed by HIS request, it was January 1997 before the assignment was completed. The Holy Spirit spent the next two years teaching me how to give prophetic words (words of encouragement, exhortation and edification) over Prophetic Worship Glory Rings – HIS Prophetic Songs in color, type and symbol before any were released to Nations in 1998.
