This is a periodic e-newsletter in line with the theme of this site: GOD Who Are You? AND Who Am I? Knowing and Experiencing God by His Hebrew Names. These are posts in addition to those of the free e-course and may expound upon the lessons in the workbook by the same name.
The following is the text of the video on my home page:
Have you had someone talk to you in a group setting expecting an answer, yet they have never acknowledged your name and are waiting for an answer? You and I like our names. Our Women’s group learned that GOD likes His name, too, and that He responds to His character names in the root Hebrew language in a powerful way.
My name is Ann Miesner and I teach people to know who they are by helping them understand who God is by His Hebrew names, so that they can feel loved and live with peace, joy and purpose.
In 1994 and 1995 God gave me two supernatural events depicting the catching away of the Body of Christ. In ’99 my family moved to Fort Scott, Kansas, where the Lord brought amazing women across my path with incredible testimonies that they shared in our city-wide group where we studied twelve of the more prominent Hebrew names of God.
These stories had to be told, so I spent five years studying fictional techniques as I transposed their stories to share with Scripture of God’s names to help explain them. The result was a bible study workbook, GOD Who Are You? AND Who Am I? – Knowing and Experiencing God by His Hebrew Names.
It has been translated into Spanish and Russian print books and is now offered as a free ecourse to the English book, in 15-minute daily increments at my Web Site: https://www.godwhoareyou.org. A Leader’s guide is also available.
We women and our families learned that “When we know and understand who God is, we grow to know who we are and where we’re going by facing squarely where we came from.”
Gretta E. from Mississippi is a single mother caring for her three grandchildren and was in a place where all she could see was her difficult circumstances. She took the free ecourse and gave her testimony at the end, saying,
“Studying Jehovah, the Hebrew words and their meanings for–he will be;–His being; and he was, was the most blessing to me. I discovered Hah was there in my brokenness, Hovi is here in my transformation, and Yehi will forever be glory in me. As I was praying and worshiping, I felt the divine presence of Jehovah enter the room. The glory was beautifully overwhelming. He came to embrace me, to show his unfailing and perfect love for me, and to assure me that I am His and He is mine.”
Melissa H. studied the book in a group setting. She said, “Through this book, this wounded warrior has been placed on her feet, not just physically, but also mentally, and on the path that God has chosen for her. My hope is that others struggling from military service or just life in general, would get this book–just take a peek. You will find the answers in life that God has for you. Just don’t give up five more minutes for your miracle.”
Janice M. in Colorado, prayer walked her neighborhood utilizing the JOSHUA JERICHO PRAYER WALKING GUIDE. She then invited her neighbors to her home for a study. As she asked one lady, she said, “Oh, I was just about to contact a medium. I want to hear from God so bad!” In the first two modules of the study, Janice led two women to receive Jesus as their Savior and Lord, and they were filled with the Holy Spirit.
I can guarantee you, that by by the time you work through the print workbook, the four eBooks, or the free eCourse bonus at my site, God will invade your space when you give Him the opportunity. Beginning in Genesis, you will travel with my military family, and 40 other individuals, until you find yourself in Revelation 12 as an overcomer, sharing your own testimony.
Jim was teaching at the community college in Arkansas City, south-central Kansas, close to the Oklahoma border, and I was church secretary after our fourth child Hank was born. Hank was five years younger than Matthew; Matt five years younger than Francy and two years between her and Kurt. This is the context of the most memorable Valentine’s Day I would ever have–and that changed my life forever!
It was soon evident I needed to begin my business/ministry so I could work my own hours from home. I loved being on the road servicing book racks. It brought many adventures – like my Valentine Day story.
I figured I could service book racks on Saturdays to begin, so I sold my first account to Graves Drug store in town. Twenty-four more accounts in close-by towns followed easily after facing my fears, which was very difficult. My life-saver was repeating out loud 2 Timothy 1:7, from the Amplified: “God has not given me a spirit of timidity—of cowardice, of craven and cringing and fawning fear—but of power and of love and of calm and a well-balanced mind and discipline and self-control.” Soon, I found Zechariah 4:6 to be quicker to say and just as powerful: “Not by might, nor by my power, but by my Spirit, says the LORD Almighty.” Repeating these Scriptures brought peace and calmed my fears.
In all the places which agreed to put in Christian books, those sales were made on the first call. Store managers liked the family values they portrayed with service provided as a guaranteed sale at 25% discount. We middle-(wo)men distributors bought at 40% discount, making it necessary to have an abundance of accounts to be worthwhile.
With the racks and home parties, I soon left the secretarial job. I absolutely loved my new adventure with Jesus. It was like He took my hand and directed every move. He so very subtly built my confidence.
Over the next seventeen years the twenty-five racks grew to fifty. Matt and Hank helped me price books with UPC stickers. Our garage converted to a bookstore on delivery day. A room off the garage with no windows, built for the previous owner’s paintings, doubled perfectly for bookshelves—no sunlight to fade the books. We had fun and I was able to buy my own van for delivery, but all the work was not without a price.
The 10,000 miles per year turned into 30,000; stress began to take its toll. My time with the Lord was compromised when I found myself leaving at 4:30 a.m. to get to Oklahoma City to have those racks serviced by the deadline of 10:00 a.m. Trips from Tulsa to Lawton, Oklahoma, Wichita Falls, Texas, and Boonville, Arkansas started to get to me—especially after two close calls on the highway.
I started to wake up and ask God what I was doing. A book in the Bible began to haunt me. The prophet Hosea was appalled at the idolatry of God’s people, idolatry he called adultery.
God expressed His love to the people through Hosea’s life when, at God’s direction, he took a wife who was as unfaithful to him as Israel was to her God. She left Hosea and he bought her back. God told Hosea, “Love her as the Lord loves the Israelites, though they turn to other gods . . . “(Hosea 3:1).
The verse that haunted me was 2:16, “In that day,” declares the Lord, “you will call me ‘my husband’; you will no longer call me ‘my master.’”
I meditated on that verse and asked the Lord, “What does this mean? Am I seeing You as my master? Have I gotten out of balance into the doing side of life in ‘possessing the land’ and left my goal of being? He so very quietly seemed to say, “Yes, I think so.”
“Then what does it mean that we will call You our husband? I understand the bride of Christ; I’ve always thought we will be that in heaven, but this seems to mean now, right? Does it mean I should askYou to be my husband rather than my master? . . . I know You have already done all You could ever do for me, so I do that. I’m asking you.”
Until . . . Valentine’s Day
I called a friend of mine, who worked in a neighboring town, to meet me for lunch. She had recently gone through a divorce and needed encouragement. My van was loaded for servicing racks that Friday afternoon close by her work.
My latest delivery of books contained a new one, Hugs for Encouragement. I arrived at the little café early to finish reading this book that I was going to give her. I’d started it and couldn’t put it down. I sat at a table where she would be sure to see me and continued to read.
Noon came and went and my friend did not show up. Oh well. I’m glad she forgot. I can finish this book. Without being able to pinpoint anything particular, all I can say is that the whole book convicted me of how I’d sought to “be encouraged” rather than to be an encourag-er. I made a vow right then to the Lord, “I will spend the rest of my life seeking to encourage, rather than to be encouraged.”
I thought, I guess I should have stayed home and invited my husband to have lunch with me since it’s Valentine’s Day.
“He’s right here!” The words were clear. Jesus is right . . . here . . . beside me!
“My arm is around your shoulders.” He spoke again. I could not move—afraid I would spoil the moment. I basked in his love unspeakable and full of glory.
After about an hour, I mustered the energy to leave. The cashier asked me, “Is everything all right?”
“Uh, hum,” is all I could say.
I had to forget the racks, drove home and parked in front of the house. I sat in the driver’s seat, still unable to move, my strength gone—until two hours later when the UPS man came with a delivery.
Almost unable to get out of the van, I could not speak to him, but managed to sign for the book. I got back in the van, still basking in the love of Jesus . . . until the school bus dropped off the children.
My adventure with Jesus was only beginning. My friend had been at the café and could not find me. Afterwards, these words kept going through my mind:
Do you feel certain, without a doubt, that your children are protected from Satan’s evil tactics when they are away from home or even in your own house? There is only one foolproof way, and it is an intentional, proactive act with the blood of Jesus Christ with the prayer of faith–and it always brings a supernatural result as you will read here.
Satan is going after your children in all-out war! Are you prepared?
Satan is after your child and your grandchildren. If you haven’t yet heard, a new well-organized curriculum is in 50 of 60 public schools across Canada. It’s called SOGI (Sexual Orientation and Gender Identification). It celebrates alternative lifestyles and that “gender is fluid. In other words, your gender is not dependent on what parts you were born with but rather what you feel like in the moment” (“Mommy, I Don’t Want to Be a Boy!” Christian Broadcasting Network News App, World, January 10, 2018).
SOGI starts in kindergarten. A five-year-old little girl came home, and said, “Mommy, I don’t want to be a boy!” When she played with so-called masculine toys, the teacher told her that she might be a boy inside. When her mother complained, she was called names because she was ‘behaving badly.’ Children’s rights are above parents’ rights. Eighty-five percent of teachers are compliant and pushing this agenda. If you think it can’t happen in America, think again. It’s spreading, and who is hindering it?
In addition, sex trafficking is not a new thing, but are you aware just how easy it is for it to happen to your child or grandchild? A new book,Almost Gone, by John, Stephanie, and Mackenzie Baldwin shares how seventeen-year old Mackenzie surfed a social media site with a tagline, Talk to Strangers! and was seduced by a man in Kosovo. The site randomly connects people from around the world. It gives them the opportunity to chat one-on-one using text or video.
Over fourteen months, she withdrew from friends and family, and dressed more conservatively. She converted to Islam from a Christian family background, and made plans to fly to Kosovo to marry this Muslim man.
Mackenzie’s parents had twenty-five days and one chance to save her. It took them getting involved with the help of one of her friends and the FBI before she woke up and cut this relationship off. Families are reading together this Almost Gone book that reads like a mystery novel.
We don’t have to see our children get to the point of flying to Kosovo or being in a classroom with a teacher pushing an evil agenda we don’t agree with. There really is hope. There really is a God who wants to fight these battles for us, and will do so if we allow Him to.
But, it takes effort and time on our part with understanding of who He is to see it happen. The Bible says “my people are destroyed from lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also reject you as my priests; because you have ignored the law of your God, I also will ignore your children” (Hosea 4:6).
Allow me to share what happened supernaturally when we prayed the Hebrew names of God over our church, children and families one week, and the spiritual wisdom behind it. First, the spiritual wisdom:
When we pray the Hebrew names of God over our children, we are invoking the whole power of the God Head – the Trinity: God the Father, the blood of Jesus Christ the Son, and Holy Spirit to work in their lives and to protect them.
Yahweh/Jehovah/LORD [Our Father] Builds a Fire Wall Around Our Childen
A man named John prayed as he walked around his property. When a fire threatened to burn his house, the fire stopped at the line of his prayer path. He had created a controlled burn area with the presence of the LORD in his life, and the natural fire could go no further. There are 417 places in the Old Testament of the Bible where Jehovah and fire are mentioned in the same sentence. We see Jehovah/Yahweh, as LORD in our English Bible. Our God, as a consuming fire (Deuteronomy 4:24), created a fire wall, just as a computer needs a fire wall to be protected.
Yeshua/Jesus Creates a Blood Line Around Our Children
John was also creating a blood line around his property. This signifies the blood Jesus shed for us to give us Life. The children of Israel were commanded to take the blood of a firstborn lamb and swipe it over the sides and tops of the door frames of their houses the night before Moses led them out of Egypt.
The LORD said, “The blood will be a sign for you on the houses where you are, and when I see the blood, I will pass over you. No destructive plague will touch you when I strike Egypt.” That night all the firstborn sons of the Egyptians were slain, but the Israelites’ sons were untouched, and Pharaoh, after this last plague, allowed them to leave Egypt for the Promised Land. This was the first Passover that pointed to the Lamb Jesus, the Father’s firstborn Son, who would bring salvation to the whole world through His shed blood that paid the price for sin.
The Holy Spirit Cleanses/Protects Our Children
The Old Testament of the Bible gives details of how the priests pronounced a diseased person clean after he was well. In this ceremonial cleansing, the priest used a scarlet yarn, blood and oil. Everything in the Old Testament points to Jesus Christ. The red yarn was symbolic of the trail of blood throughout history of the Jewish people who shed blood of firstborn animals, “for without the shedding of blood, there is no remission of sin” (Hebrews 9:22).
Rather than using blood for cleansing today, post resurrection of Jesus, we use oil. The Bible instructs us when praying for the sick to anoint him with oil, and with the prayer of faith he will be made well (see James 5:14-15). We can anoint anything with oil with a prayer of faith, just like the children of Israel used blood over their houses and like the priests sprinkled blood against the altar at the entrance of the tent of meeting (see Leviticus 17:6). Oil is symbolic of the Holy Spirit in the Bible.
How We Prayed Over Our Children, Families and Church Property
If the church shooting that killed twenty-six people from infants to the elderly in Sutherland Springs, Texas in 2017, did not wake up you or your church, nothing will. On January 7, 2018, we started a JOSHUA-JERICHO PRAYER-WALKING GUIDEto pray during one week. Each day, beginning on Monday and ending on Saturday, we prayed each day two of twelve Hebrew names of God over our families and church while at home. We also anointed the entrances to our houses.
On Sunday the 14th, we prayed all twelve Hebrew names of God as we walked around the church, and the pastor anointed the entrance of the ‘tent of meeting’ and other doors as we, the kingdom of priests, watched and walked by. A couple people sounded the shofar, and we shouted in praise to the LORD.
Something Happened on the 3rd Day of Our 7-Day Prayer Walk
During the week, Wednesday morning, I meditated on Joshua 5. This was 40 years after the children of Israel left Egypt and they had just observed the Passover as they did that night before leaving. It was the 14th day of their New Year, just as they had done every year on the 14th day of each new year. Knowing Sunday would be the 14th day, confirmed to me that the LORD was in our midst and truly guiding us.
This is the chapter after Joshua and the children of Israel already crossed Jordan River to enter the Promised Land and before they marched around Jericho seven times, armed and ready for battle. They witnessed the LORD bring down the wall, so they could go in and take the city. On the evening of the 14th day, Joshua saw a man standing in front of him with a drawn sword in his hand. Joshua went up to him and asked, “Are you for us or for our enemies?”
“Neither,” he replied, “but as commander of the army of the LORD I have now come.” It’s like the LORD was saying, “I will take it from here. Do not be afraid or discouraged because of this vast army. For the battle is not yours, but God’s. . . . You will not have to fight this battle. Take up your positions, stand firm and see the deliverance the LORD will give you” (2 Chronicles 20:15, 17).
The Commander of the Army of the LORD of hosts Showed Up
As I tried to picture the commander of the army of the LORD, I knew His Hebrew name was Jehovah- Sabaoth, the Lord of hosts, Supreme Commander of the universe and our Bridegroom. This Hebrew character name of God has a dual meaning: a hard side and a soft side. The commander of army of the LORD in the book of Joshua was the Angel of the LORD Jesus Christ who is our soon coming King and Bridegroom of His mature, military Bride.
Before I knew anything was happening, my head lifted from my Bible as I saw a huge flash of white and gold shoot up into the air above our church property. I saw His sword cut into the ground at the property line a few yards, then it was like: swoosh all the way around, and He was gone. The impression I heard was, “I’ll take care of that blood line and fire wall for you. Thank you for believing.”
We had not yet prayed day five that called upon the name of Jehovah-Sabaoth, but all these Hebrew character names are the same and ONE and ONLY true GOD of the universe: the Trinity – Father, Son and Holy Spirit. What an amazing God we serve!

2. ORDERHERE > the Almost Gone book and read this riveting book as a family. Talk about these things with your children so they will be comfortable asking you questions. Talk with them. When our children were teenagers they said, “Parents don’t talk with their children. They feel all alone.” Please don’t let that parent be you.
3. PRINT OUTHERE > JOSHUA-JERICHO PRAYER-WALKING GUIDE and pray them over your children at home – all at once or over one week. Repeat periodically. Call upon God’s Hebrew names. He likes His name just as you do, and He responds. Don’t worry about not saying it correctly. As a parent loves to hear his child attempt to say ‘dada’ or ‘mama,’ so does our heavenly Father.
4. ANOINT your house and children’s room entrances with a prayer of faith simply as, “I apply the blood of Jesus Christ over ______, so they are covered and protected in spirit, soul and body with the blood of Jesus as they come and go.” Above all, ask God to guide you and He will.
5. PRAY about getting your friends and church to do the same.
