DCL Ministries is very excited to feature this tremendous woman of God pastor, worship leader, and author Paula Gilbert, in our very own Writer’s Corner, for the month of February. The co-founder of In Union With God Ministries along with her husband Jay Gilbert, we are blessed to highlight Paula’s road to redemption, because it is an extraordinary journey to witness. Many of us struggle with whom to listen to and who we should allow to lead our lives when confusion, troubles, and pain come our way. Many fall prey to negative thinking while exposing ourselves to the horrible influences, which lurk around the corner in this fallen world. Paula is a witness to the power of Jesus in her life and we are proud to join hands with her as she educates, uplifts, and encourages others in their Christian walk today.
” Therefore, since through God’s mercy we have renounced secret and shameful ways; we do not use deception , nor do we distort the word of God. On the contrary, be setting forth the truth plainly we commend ourselves to every man’s conscience in the sight of God. And if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. The God of this age has blinded the minds of the unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God. For we do not preach ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, and our ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake. For God, who said, ” Let light shine out of the darkness, made his light in our hearts to give us the light of the knowledge of the glory of God in the face of Christ” ( 2 Corinthians 4:1-6).
Paula Gilbert allowed that beautiful light of Jesus to shine into her mind, heart, and soul resulting in a new way of thinking and a new way of living. Paula demonstrates with her life, that Jesus is truly the life, the way, and the truth to all mankind. Therefore, DCL Ministries celebrates her faithfulness, obedience, and devotion to serving Jesus. We invite all, who who might struggle to listen to her compelling, personal story as she revealed her journey in a heartwarming , eye-opening interview on our Christian radio show, Dovetales. We are delighted to feature her for the month of love as she honors our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.

Enjoy this word from pastor, worship leader, and author Paula Gilbert:
In The modern Church performs many roles, but the most important role is often neglected: that of being Christ’s espoused BRIDE. In biblical Judaism, being espoused or engaged was equivalent to being married. (See Matthew 1:18,19). So although we have not yet attended the wedding, it’s as if we, the Church, are already married to Jesus; our engagement covenant is binding! When He returns for His spotless bride, the actual marriage supper will take place. But what does it mean to be the betrothed bride of Yeshua/Jesus? It means that He desires an intimate relationship with us, His beloved. In her book, Be Still and Know That I Am God, Paula Gilbert endeavors to reveal what such intimacy implies. From the very beginning, God longed for fellowship with mankind. He also expressed His deep love for Israel, and indicated in the Tanakh that He was “married” to her. Today, it is no different. Yahweh aspires to walk and talk with us (His Church), as He did with Adam and Eve in the Garden. He’s jealous for us with the jealousy of a passionate lover, and He’s calling us close to His heart once more. In a mostly “Word based” era, it is time for the Church to restore the lost art of pursuing our beloved Lord with deep fervor, resulting in experiential knowledge of Him rather than mere intellectual knowledge or religious form, because the Letter without the Spirit is dead.
Together with her husband Jay, Paula Gilbert is an ordained pastor, evangelist, bible teacher and missionary. She is also a prophetic musician who formerly led worship and intercession in the 24/7 prayer room at Orlando House of Prayer (OHOP). Currently, she is taking time out to pursue other projects, including writing a new book that details her testimony coming out of the Occult/Wicca; soon to be released.
