This Ain't That!!
The Spirit of Elohiym has been showing me this lately, so the necessity to speak this Word was paramount. Since the launch of my "public ministry" if you will, exciting as it is and will continue to be, the other side of the coin has come into play - the susceptibility of being defined, labeled, categorized, minimized, ostracized, etc., by the public. It comes with the territory, and as the LORD YAH continues to unveil His purpose for my life He has shed for this: a strong, comforting, encouraging Word for me, while also being a Word for anyone who tries, whether intentionally or ignorantly, to define or render me to a category that makes them comfortable. You cannot corrupt who YAH has chosen, and you cannot box in who YAH has blessed. Not now. Not ever.

28 - Quiet Strength
In this episode I realized myself, the message, and this podcast is counter-cultural. I have a different perspective, a different worldview. The way to wholeness is to be, move, and think opposite of popular belief and opinion. This is the Grace of Yah Elohim in Truth. This is Holes 2 Whole!

27 - Processed Out
Holes 2 Whole is the journey of shifting, sifting, and being processed - squeezing/shifting out the sin, the flesh, the false identity & leaving the beauty of the original creation! Although the results of the process culminates in beauty (wholeness), the process itself is uncomfortable. However, this is the only way to thresh out what shouldn’t be there! Everything is for your good! Processed out!

26 - Shifting Dimensions Pt. 2
Holes 2 Whole is a dimension shift - shifting out the false identity and shifting into the new you, the true you, the pure you!
May 23, 2022
25 - Like a Bullet
The sting of pain, sin, etc., in life can be like a stray bullet - you’re not the target but you still get hit.
May 23, 2022
24 - Sight is Life
The effects of the knowledge of sin leave you blind - to yourself and to the Truth. Thank the LORD for vision and visionaries who know The Way, goes The Way, and shows The Way.

23 - Shifting Dimensions
I am here to shift dimensions!

22 - Accepting Reality w/ Ben Jr
Freedom is a key element of fulfillment, wholeness, and happiness. However, there’s no growth without acceptance - accepting the past, the pain, the truth of what happened. My son and I discuss the freedom that comes with accepting reality.
May 05, 2022
21 - Open Vision, Closed Mind
I had a closed mind. I only thought, reacted, or responded one way. The LORD has opened my heart and my mind with open vision!!
May 05, 2022

Listen in to a great conversation on life, pain, and health!

18 - Happiness Is The Way
“There’s no way to happiness. Happiness is the way.” You may have heard this famous quotation before. It has everything to do with the plan and purpose of God for your life. As human beings, we perform for happiness, but our performance will never suffice. When the LORD performs, that’s when everything changes. That’s when you’re fulfilled. That’s when you’re satisfied. That’s when you experience true happiness.

17 - No More Band-AIDS
Healing ourselves is impossible.
May 05, 2022
16 - Personal Responsibility
Although we are not to blame for everything which happens to us in our lives, we are accountable and responsible for how we respond. We are often led by our trauma and respond emotionally by developing different plots, plans, and schemes to cope with it. In this way, we have ordained ourselves our own doctors, therapists, etc., to our own detriment. However, this is all a part of the plan, as the LORD God will work a work in your days, leaving you repentant, forgiven, healed, and restored.

15 - The Shampoo Brush
What am I most proud of since the Grace, Spirit, power, love, faith, life, light of Jesus entered my soul? The ability to see. Specifically, the ability to see great lessons in seemingly small or insignificant things and situations. I talk about identity, power, design, generational curses, yokes, and strongholds on this episode. Tune in to Holes 2 Whole - the podcast for the soul. From the pit to the palace. In Jesus name.

14 - A Faith Mindset
If there’s anyone who has experienced the revolutionary, transforming, and multi-faceted Grace of I AM these past few years it’s me. I say that humbly, because while this is surely been the case, recently the LORD showed me I unknowingly shifted from a faith mindset to a “safe” mindset. Being safe is comfortable, but the LORD did not lavish me with Himself to play it safe. Tune in to hear more of the Grace of Jesus in Truth!

13 - Running From the Call?
Could you be running from the call on your life? Could you be using your limitations, inadequacy, or past baggage to run from & rule yourself out your purpose? Hmmm. Tune into Holes 2 Whole to hear what the LORD showed me!
February 02, 2022
12 - The Dream or Dream Giver?
Are you running (piloting) your dream or is your dream running you? Although it’s true the LORD God prepared your purpose before He prepared you, purpose is not designed to be more important than the person. The Father wills to refine your character, redeem your iniquity, and release you into purpose at His appointed time - when you’re strengthened, settled, and grounded in Him. All dreams (purposes) have a destination - the Dream Giver. Keep your eyes on the Giver & not the dream, and you will steward the dream with wisdom instead of overextending yourself beyond your capacity. Even if you do mess up and overwork or overextend yourself, no need to fret. The LORD has made provision for that. Rest in the Giver. Rely on what He taught & is teaching you. Wait on the LORD. In Jesus name. Amen.

11 - A Sacrificed Will
The will of the LORD God is for you to do His will. He knows the effect of submitting to His will - life, peace, purpose, and love. Put your will, wants, & plans to rest. Put your life in the Master’s hands! This is wholeness!
January 19, 2022
10 - The Past To Wholeness
This episode is a memorial for me. Throughout the unveiling of the LORD’s grace, purpose, and plan for my life, I have, in a strange way, drifted from the depths of what He originally taught me. This has not been on purpose by any means; it takes time to learn & adapt to the manifold grace of YHWH. Thankfully, the LORD has reminded me clearly of His purpose for me. This is the meat & potatoes of what He’s done for me & what He’s called me to do. In Jesus name. Amen.

09 - Rely On Identity
Holes 2 Whole 2022! Pain is not meant to define you, but to refine & re-find you! There’s no greater power than knowing who you are! Rely on that & don’t change a thing! I’m coming straight!
January 05, 2022
08 - People & Purpose
This episode represents and reflects a timely shift - naturally, mentally, and spiritually. Shifting the podcast to a new day & time of day, the LORD shifted my mentality: Do not be concerned with reaching people at their convenience. Reach them at yours, since I have already predestined & predetermined you, your deliverance, your purpose, and the people you’re going to reach, says the LORD almighty. Rest from worry. Rest from catering to people. The LORD is sovereign & presides over all! #KingJesus

07 - Promise Kept
Just like a word of prophecy/promise was spoken by the LORD concerning a Seed who would come to rescue, redeem, and bless the world, a prophetic word was spoken over my life while yet in my mother’s womb. The LORD has brought to pass & will continue to perfect that which concerns me! His mercies endure forever! He will never forsake the work of His hands! Great is your faithfulness! #KingJesus

06 - I See You: Message to Demons
The LORD has and is exposing the schemes Satan. I'm burdened on this episode, not in a bad way, but in a mad way. I'm fed up with his cunning and insidious ways. However, this is all part of the plan and the sovereign will of the LORD GOD El-Elyon has been done and will be done. In Jesus name.
