A Special Message from James W. Goll
Now Is the Time for Godly Women to Arise!
Now is the time for godly women as role
models to emerge on the scene of church history and extend their influence into all of the seven cultural mountains! Just like Barak and Deborah, we need men and women to work together. As a coach and a champion for women
in leadership and ministry, I want to see a company of Deborahs arise in this hour across the spectrum of society.
"That the leaders led in Israel, that the people volunteered, Bless the Lord!" Judges 5:2
Yes, it is a rather intense story found right in the middle of the pages of the Bible concerning Deborah the Deliverer (read Judges 4 & 5). But as a male spiritual leader, I have something to say to you
mighty women of God! We cannot afford for you to be fearful "little women" in your own eyes. It is time for you to Emerge! We need you!
Instead, you must come forth with internal security like Deborah of
old and pick up your warrior's mantle for such a time as this. Today, across the globe and right in our own back yards, there are enemies on the rampage tearing apart society at every corner. My late wife, Michal Ann
Goll, and I founded the Women on the Frontlines conference movement. In her inaugural book, Women on the Frontlines - A Call to Courage, she issued a clarion call that still needs answered today.
"We live in an
age that is sorely lacking in heroes. Think about it. Who can we look at today and regard as a hero? Certainly there are some, but they sure are hard to find! Isaiah the prophet said that when a people comes under judgment,
God takes away wise leadership from the land - the hero, warrior, judge, prophet, elders and others (see Isaiah 3:1-4 NIV). During a time of restoration the Lord restores the Land. We are now entering a time of restoration,
and the Lord is calling us to be heroes. He is preparing us for a time soon to come when the world will cry out for leaders who are in touch with the heart and the mind of God." (from Michal Ann Goll, Women on the
Frontlines, (Shippensburg, PA: Destiny Image Publishers, Inc., 1999) 145.)
So with the voice of my late wife, Michal Ann Goll, still echoing in the shadows, a new breed of women leaders like Victoria Boyson are now
emerging. There is a modern day women's movement that cannot be stopped appearing on the global scene today. Together we echo loud and clear, "It's time to arise and carry Deborah's heart and
anointing!" Yes, it must be a heart of purity mixed with the unshakeable quality of courage.
It's time for men and women to join together and provide real leadership and justice like Deborah and
Barak! As a male spiritual leader in the global prayer and prophetic movement, I say to you, "Come Forth!" Come on now! Change society. Shift the courts. Bring revival and restoration to the land.
book (God's Magnum Opus: The Value of a Woman) is an excellent treasure to be added to the voices who have gone before. Victoria Boyson is a brave, mature and pure voice from the Lord. I am grateful to the Lord for this
excellent book! I highly commend to you the writings, the ministry and the life of another one of God's Girls in this hour!
Remember, You Were Chosen for Such a Time as This!

There is only ONE accurate version of the truth of your worth and that is the Fathers truth, because you are His creation. Only
He really understands you and the things that have fought hard to wound your soul and steal your confidence. He sees you through eyes uncluttered by human hindrances and social sentiment.
God loved Adam so
much, He created the greatest, most inspiring work of art he could for him - Eve! She was the expression of the Fathers love. A priceless treasure, indeed! In woman, the Father created His Magnum Opus, His
work of art - the grand finale of His creation masterpiece.
In the Father's grand design for humanity, you are His magnum opus!
Below is a segment I have personally chosen out of my newest book to
share with you. If you are a woman with the call of God on your life, you need to read this book. Whether you are destined to reach the nations or have the important God-given task of raising your wonderful children
in the truth of the Lord, I wrote this book for you. I spent ten years researching this information and seeking the Father's heart for His daughters - this book is the culmination of that time and study.
Him, Victoria Boyson
Liberty to the Captives
"Our Father in heaven, hallowed be your name, your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven" Matthew 6:9-10 NIV.
THE CROSS SETS things right.
The cross bore the shame and sin of the fall of mankind and revealed the kingdom of heaven to the human race. God's heavenly kingdom would not dominate or cast aside any human, regardless of race, gender or position (Galatians 3:28). Indeed, God will pour out His Spirit on every human being who will receive Him. Jesus emancipated humanity and declared to the Earth, "The kingdom of God is already among you" (Luke 17:21 NIV).
Christ presented us with a new way of thinking: the mindset of heaven. He taught us to pray to the Father, "May your will be done on earth, as it is in heaven" (Matthew 6:10 NLT), literally calling down the mindset of the kingdom to invade and overtake the earth.
When we ask the Father to manifest the reality of heaven on earth, we are asking for the love and acceptance that heaven enjoys to come and invade the church, the world and our hearts. We are asking for the traditions of man, the lies of history and the hatred and fear of generations to be washed away by the cross of Christ. This prayer, the Father's prayer, reveals
a new existence and a new way of thinking and living to the earth.
Indeed, that includes the lies told against women, which must be exposed and God's truth about women be instituted in our hearts and minds. So, we should then be asking ourselves, "How does heaven treat women?" The nearest example we have is the life of Christ.
What did Jesus say about women when He lived on the earth? How did Jesus treat women? Or better yet, what didn't Jesus teach us about ourselves?
Jesus challenged the world He lived in with the truth. He foresaw His sacrifice on the cross and knew it would bring liberty to men and women alike! He knew the cross would send the world reeling, but would bring about the ultimate liberation of an entire gender - that 50% of His bride would ultimately be set free from the bonds and chains of tradition's lies against them.
Jesus, our Savior, died to liberate you and me. He died to liberate both men and women - it was a part of the package, an essential element to equip the church. So, why do women continue to allow their liberty to be stripped away from them?
Think about it. Paul was speaking to the Corinthians in 2 Corinthians 11:19-20, but he was talking to women and men both when he said, "After all, you think you are so wise, but you enjoy putting up with fools! You put up with it when someone enslaves you, takes everything you have, takes advantage of you, takes control of everything, and slaps you in the face" (NLT emphasis mine).
For centuries, many women have allowed themselves to be devalued and believed they were serving God by doing so.
The enemy will try any contemptible lie he can to keep you from doing what you are called to do. He will wrap a morsel of truth around a bundle of lies and call it wisdom and try to make it law.
Should we let him stop us?
Would you let Satan stop you from defending your children if they were in danger or your church if it needed your help? Why let him limit you? Why allow him to take up space in your mind with his debunked theories of womanhood when the Word of God clearly states that you were called for such a time as this. "I will pour out my Spirit upon all people. Your sons and DAUGHTERS will prophesy. Your old men will dream dreams, and your young men will see visions. In those days I will pour out my Spirit even on servants -
both men and women alike!" Joel 2:28 NLT (emphasis mine).
Christ died to set women free from the intolerable burdens they were never meant to bear so they could take their place in His kingdom on
earth without reservation or excuse. Why, then, would we ever allow ourselves to become enslaved again by the traditions of mankind and reproach ourselves for our lack of compliance to the indoctrination the church has
handed out to us as spiritual food?
Why would we disregard the freedom Christ died to give us? Why would we throw away the humanity He handed us? It is His gift to us; our freedom through Christ is our
inheritance from Him. He came to set women free.
God, our Father, has designed and planned for you to take your place in the battle for the kingdom - to do the greater works of the kingdom! When you embrace the work
of the cross, you are no longer a marginalized female, but you are one in Christ with His kingdom. Remember: when God looks at you, He sees Jesus! (Galatians 3:28).
When you triumph over mankind's opinion of you, you triumph for the kingdom of heaven.
The Holy Spirit showed me a vision years ago of a great, towering building. The structure had a foundation and floors on every level, but had completed walls on only two sides and no roof. In the
building, there was a great multitude of men and women working as if they were oblivious to the conditions of the building they were in. They were simply unaware of their terrible lack and the vulnerable situation it put
I asked God about the vision. He said, "My house is not yet finished and it will remain unfinished and vulnerable to the enemy until the women take their rightful place in My house."
found it peculiar He did not say the women should be given their rightful place, but He said they must take their place. Unfortunately, there is still a great deal of misogynist thinking in the church and amongst women against themselves. Indeed, God never said it would be easy and truly, the difficulties we face build us into the strong women we need to be to rally for our King.
And we, as a chuch, must stand vehemently against any and all opposition against the whole kingdom of heaven coming to the earth. It must be released through all of us - men and women alike!
