Minister Diane Jones was born in Sacramento, CA into a military family. Her father was in the United States Air Force so she could accurately be called an Air Force Brat. Her early childhood years included traveling to places like Germany and the Philippine Islands exposing her early to different cultures. In her pre adolescent years, the family and life she knew was destroyed by Alcoholism and Mental Illness which lead to her being emotionally, physically and sexually abused by her parents. These abuses lead to her being placed in Foster Care until the age of eighteen.

In spite of the trauma of her early years and even more trauma in later years, she went on to become a successful wife, mother, Registered Nurse and Minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

Who can find a virtuous woman? That is what she strives to be. She is a woman in love. There is nothing in her household that is more important than her husband. He can trust her. They are a team. She loves to create, contribute and beautify.

Minister Diane accepted the call to Ministry and was ordained in December of 1999. The Lord told her not to let any one label or limit her in doing his work, "You are a minister because I want you to do whatever I need you to do". This directive has allowed her to serve as a Nurse, Foster Parent, Praise and Worship Leader, Preacher, Teacher, Counselor and Prophetess. Together with her husband she currently serves the Body of Christ through their home based ministry "Equipping the Saints Minitries". Her greatest passions include outreach as an Assistant/ Volunteer with her husband who coaches Men's Basketball for the USAF and ministry through the sharing of her personal testimony and first book "The Story of Me". Since her first book, Diane has released Overcoming Sexual Abuse by Minister Jones (Inspired by the Holy Spirit) in which she shares insights about what sexual abuse is and how to overcome it and her latest autobiography The Story of Me a Black Nurse in which she deals with the issue and tramas caused by racism.

Minister Diane's education consist of her life experiences including nursing training, a Bachelors in Theology and most credibly, attendance in the School of the Holy Spirit who is the greatest of all teachers. She currently resides in Maryland with her wonderful husband, friend and companion Minister Chris.

Independence Day 2015

Thinking about our nation's true foundation, the time before government as we know it.   A time when people loved their neighbors, elders were worthy of respect and youth.  A time when I felt safe in the world in spite of the horrors I faced in my own house hold growing up.  A time when people knew right from wrong. Today we continue to grieve the loss of those precious days as a whole.  We know we can't live in the past.  We also know we have a personal responsibility to keep the values we hold dear alive.  We vow to do just that.  Our foundation is firm in our faith in God.  We will have no other God before him.  As for we and our house,  we will serve him.

We love our neighbors.

We honor our parents. 

We respect authority. 

We will continue to stand for what is right,  fast and pray for a Spiritual Awakening in this nation and a return to it's Godly Foundation.  

We will be celebrating what America stood for and joining others today at Celebrate America DC. 

May God Restore America.

Absolutely Furious Tonight at 7PM EST 6-29-15

I am absolutely furious about the Supreme Courts decision regarding Same Sex Unions.  God does not recognize them as marriages, neither will I.

The Supreme Court is not Supreme in Gods' Kingdom. It has no spiritual authority.  It's jurisdiction is applicable to the Law of the land in the United States.  The Supreme Court cannot make good what God has called evil.  Christians should not honor this ruling in any way, we are commanded to obey the laws of the land until they oppose Gods commandments.

Furthermore, I am furious to know that our president stood before us and had the nerve, the audacity to sing Amazing Grace at the funeral of slain Pastor Clementa Pinckney, associated with the Charleston Church Shootings after his victory concerning the Federal legalization of Same Sex Unions. This is ABSOLUTE CONFUSION. The scriptures make it clear, one can not strattle the fence.  Believer's are to be hot or cold.  There is NO in between, yet he continues to manipulate this issue and portray himself as a believer.  This is absolutely DECEITFUL.   

Shame on  Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church for permitting this wolf in sheep's clothing to stand behind it's pulpit at such a time as this.  We denounce your actionsWe do not stand with you as representatives of God.  You are obviously a seeker friendly organization, not a house of God.  Believers in Christ are not obligated to obey any law that contradicts Gods' Law.  In fact we are commanded to abstain from sin in every way shape and form.  It is sinful to support sexual abuse and sexual perversion in any way.  The fact that our president condones this behavior speaks volumes about his spiritual condition.  The fact that churches like EAMEC praise and bow to his wicked agenda, speaks volumes about their spiritual condition.  Believer's are not to be partakers in any other mans sins.  Sexual perversion is confusion and it brings on more confusion.

Be reminded that God is not mocked. Every man/woman will reap what they sow.  It is better to serve Sin outright than to profess to be a Christian/Follower of Christ and be against him.

The Supreme Court is not the Supreme Court

This is a day that the Lord has made. We will rejoice and be glad in it knowing that he is in control.

Today the Supreme Court ruled in favor of Same Sex Marriage on a national level. We mourn this decision. There is no such thing as same sex marriage in the eyes of God. Regardless of the Supreme Courts decision on this matter, God is "Supreme". He ruled on this matter many years ago and he does not change.

There will rough times ahead for all Americans but know that God is with us, "his children", in this hour. You may be forced to declare your faith in him. Be bold concerning this should it happen.

At Equipping the Saints Ministries, God has called us to increase our fasting and praying, these are the weapons of our warfare. 

We will continue to war that his will to be done and that his kingdom will come. Amen.

Charlston Deaths- Words of Exhortation 6-19-15

Yesterday I received a text from my daughter reporting "There was a shooting at a church in Charleston SC. 9 dead. One left by the suspect to be able to tell what happened. Just upsetting and heartbreaking. I couldn't respond, I was grocery shopping, had to wait till I was in my car to respond. Before I responded, I turned on the radio and heard Attorney Jay Sekulow talking about the shooting, next I heard Dr. Brown talking about it and began to get a clearer picture of what had occurred. 9 Christian, African American, men and women had been murdered in cold blood in a church, during a Bible Study. I was immediately troubled. I headed home and barely made it in my house, when my daughter called me on the phone. We began to discuss the details as we heard them to be. My daughter was very upset and emotional about the incident. I sympathized with her but reminded her of the examples we have concerning this type of violence in scripture.

I shared with her information from my study about Solomon's Temple, how he appointed men to guard the gates of the temple. 1Chronicles 9:22-27 (The men were called porters. 24 guard stations were manned in three shifts around the clock; 72 men were needed each week. This totaled 212 men. Their tour of duty lasted approximately every three weeks) ZKJ Study Bible. I went on to emphasize how, overtaking and capturing a cities temple or "Holy Place" was common in Biblical times. The temples were where the most valuable treasures were often kept. Conquering a cities place of worship, meant you conquered the city. I pointed these things out to educate her and let her know, serving God has always been a dangerous practice. This fact has been taken for granted in the US because American Christians have not faced much of this type of persecution and many American Christian churches have watered down the gospel, allowed the "church" to be infiltrated with Greek Organizations and Secret Societies like the Masonic Organizations, none of which have any place in God's house. This has weakened the "church" to it's very core. Many have taught their congregants that "church" is supposed to be a place of tranquility and peace in an effort to grow the church financially and numerically. One only needs to study the scriptures to learn the truth about these matters. Today I followed the news coverage, read articles about the deceased, and tears came to my eyes. My emotions were mixed with sorrow and anger. I became righteously indignant as I listened to the comments made by the presiding judge during the arraignment when he referred to the shooters family as victims and demanded that all recognize that fact, as others protested the high flying Confederate flag that waves from the capitol building in Charleston and as I spoke with locals concerning their plans to convene to discuss the issue at hand. After some reflection, I remembered a prophetic word I received and related information that I'd like to share with you.

5/27/09 Judgment, Deliverance, Day of Reckoning

There will be an eruption: Mt. Suvious, ash, smoke, lava, shall come forth. Will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Will be a cry and a wailing as never before. My judgment is upon them. The day of reckoning is upon them. Exact, exact the accounts for ye have been weighed in the balance and come up short, lacking. What is this judgment? They will ask what evil has brought this wickedness upon us? You will tell them their sin, the sin of rape, incest against children, those sold in to sex slavery. It has come before me as a stench in my nostrils, a vile and putrid aroma. It's a stench to me and I will recompense every man according to his works shall be. MT. Suvious shall bring forth an eruption. it will be a cleansing of the land........We will go forth, reeking havoc on the enemy, tearing down strong holds and pulling down principalities from high places. I see us in the (spirit) like sticks of dynamite, blowing up the enemies camps in these areas........Governments, kingdoms of this world becoming his kingdoms..........Sensed restitution for African Americans due to history of slavery. God will use government to bring this about.

He has seen and known the evil. He is just, he will exact, he rains on the just and the unjust.

On 6/27/09 A guest on It's Supernatural, shared this revelation concerning Americas future; Earthquake in center of Country if it's leadership continues to put pressure on Israel to give up land and compromise with their enemies (Division).........More hardship- suggest stocking up on dry goods i.e. beans, rice, put away some money...........

On 5/23/15 I received a text from another relative reporting; Unofficially Obama has given us (Blacks) reparations. Read the UN "Rights of Indigenous People"

It is true, there has been ongoing unrest in the US concerning inequality and discrimination against African, Black Americans. Remember the children killed in the church during the civil rights movement, MLK's Mother was killed in church, MLK himself was murdered for righteousness sake. Remember the Rodney King uprising. Recently there has been unrest in Ferguson and Baltimore. It is equally true that people of God, prophets and such have been martyred through out history. What happened in Charleston is a reminder and a wake-up call to believer's today. Satan is doing what he's always done. He's trying to conquer!

Todays "churches" should resemble yesterdays. We should guard our sanctuaries the way they were guarded in past times. We need Godly men to take their rightful places physically and spiritually, to take shifts guarding protecting the work of God in each of us as well as our sanctuaries..

Remember God is just. He reminds me today of this and his promises. So I remind you as Gods people, we are engaged in spiritual warfare. We are to be spiritually minded, discerning, and prayerful. God doesn't allow anything to happen in the land that he doesn't first reveal to his Prophets. He forewarned of this "eruption/Division." Restoration comes at a price but God promises Deliverance and a Day of Reckoning to all who have been oppressed.
