Dear Project Backers,

First, what is/was Junia Arise?

JUNIA ARISE represents the breaking of the chains for all women, everywhere.

Junia Arise

On the 11-14th days of July 2018 in Washington D.C. USA, a team of apostles & prophets released a blessing over women of global proportions. Every moment, our video production team was there to capture this historic benchmark of female power and leadership-and it was truly unlocked!

Junia Arise

There is an ‘inside look’ into the meeting of this Congressional Summit of appointed apostles who have released a ‘supersonic’ spiritual wave of spiritual truth, healing, and restoring upon women to God’s calling in ‘their place as equals’ in the home, the Spirit, and the community.

Junia Arise

If you back us, we will share this incredible ground shaking conference, as a theatrical-length documentary film with both Hollywood appeal and Holy Ghost truth. We need to reach our minimum goal of $100,000 to get started. We are sending out this beacon to people all over the world, yet we still need YOU to be a part of our backer team. It takes 1,000 people with $100 to set this movie in motion. We really need your support! And we thank you so kindly and so truly for standing with us, right here, and right now.

Junia Arise

It’s also important to note that this is not just an empowerment movie for women. Junia Arise is also a birthing center for breakthroughs, great ideas, fresh perspectives and the true callings nestled in female wombs and inspired by feminine hearts all around the world. For centuries, women have been birthing more than human life. Our ideas, abilities, and skills have become leading innovations in business, policy, education, science, diplomacy, social responsibility, mathematics, faith, and far more–since the beginning of human history.

Junia Arise

Junia Arise was designed and manifested as an ancient theological excavation and historical dissection of Holy Scriptures that evidence God’s will concerning women and their callings to many of the highest levels of leadership. Seventeen centuries ago, the most powerful institution in the world was the Church. The fact that Junia (a woman) was a ranking apostolic leader in the church of “outstanding” notoriety (see, Romans 16:7) set a precedent that women have a place as leaders in society from the top down. However, in the 4th Century, there was a forging of Holy Writ, in an attempt to silence the Word of God concerning women.

Junia Arise

But now we know the truth, and it’s time to reverse the damage once and for all, by restoring the role of women as leaders with the power of the Holy Spirit. The error was legislatively vetoed and the truth forever enacted. This proclamation has already been unlocked and released to all women for all times (born and unborn) – regardless of our differences. We are now liberated from the shackles and prisons of ‘second-class’ labels and will ultimately bring forth the full restoration of our inheritance as equal & rightful heirs. This has already been done as of July 2018, and now it is time to share this supernatural event as a revolutionary documentary film.

You have to see this! #MeToo

Yours truly,

Dr. Yolanda Powell | Marketplace Apostle

Risks and challenges

Fortunately, we have already overcome our greatest challenge–financing and launching this one-of-kind conference, and capturing everything on tape. Over the next several months we will be developing a seamless production that includes music, artistry, and an assembly of supporting clips to deliver a powerful theatrical film production. This will require additional intellectual property licensing. We will need to have those materials made available to us at the quoted cost in order to achieve use of those particular materials. In the event we are unable to acquire some additional copyrights, we may simply pursue alternatives to complete our production and deliver a high quality film to our backers. The production/storyboarding/editing and artistry teams and their respective members, equipment, and software materials may face technical difficulties or other complications that might cause delays regarding our delivery dates as projected. In such instances, we can assure you that we will make best efforts with available funds to replace and/or supplement persons and/or equipment in a reasonable time to deliver this documentary as intended. Further, the technical complexity associated with delivering a broadcast film event online to an international audience is subject to numerous potential complications, including loss of connection, web server failures, and other challenges that might arise with a live broadcast. We assure you, that we will make best efforts to anticipate such complications and prevent them, and have considered the appropriate solution, and will continue to test this for quality assurance leading up to the screening in order to provide you with a high quality, uninterrupted, live screening of Junia Arise. Everything we set out to do is planned to be accomplished by reaching our minimum fundraising goal of $100,000. Although, our mission calls us to share this message around the world with as many women as possible. That may entail closed captions in many other languages, and translation is very costly. Our budget is set to cover exactly what we need to get this production completed initially. However, once the initial budget is achieved, we will set a $250,000 stretch goal in order to take this project to the nations with an organized marketing campaign, and perhaps a number of events leading up to the release next Spring (2020). Also, as we receive inquiries about the project we will begin to post frequently asked questions in our FAQ section for quick reference. Also, look out for updates over the next 12 months leading up to the release of Junia Arise. We look forward to sharing this big screen mission and vision with you. Blessings to all!

The Mind of Christ

1 Corinthians 2:15-16

15 The person with the Spirit makes judgments about all things, but such a person is not subject to merely human judgments, 16 for,

“Who has known the mind of the Lord
so as to instruct him?”

But we have the mind of Christ.

The Mind of Christ

“No one can comprehend God (Romans 11:34), but through the guidance of the Holy Spirit, believers have insight into some of God’s plans, thoughts, and actions—they, in fact, have the ‘mind of Christ.’ Through the Holy Spirit we can begin to know God’s thoughts, talk with him, and expect his answers to our prayers. Are you spending enough time with Christ to have his very mind in you? An intimate relationship with Christ comes only from spending time consistently in his presence and in his Word.” (Life Application Study Bible 1912)

Boast in My Weaknesses

2 Corinthians 12:9-10

9 But He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.” Therefore, I will most gladly boast all the more about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may reside in me. 10 So I take pleasure in weaknesses, insults, catastrophes, persecutions, and in pressures, because of Christ. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

One Body

Romans 12:4-8

4 For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, 5 so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. 6 We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith; 7 if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; 8 if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead, do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.

One Body

“Paul uses the concept of the human body to teach how Christians should live and work together. Just as the parts of the body function under the direction of the brain, so Christians are to work together under the command and authority of Jesus Christ (see 1 Corinthians 12:12-31; Ephesians 4:1-16).” (Life Application Study Bible 1898)

“God gives us gifts so we can build up his church. To use them effectively, we must (1) realize that all gifts and abilities come from God; (2) understand that not everyone has the same gifts; (3) know who we are and what we do best; (4) dedicate our gifts to God’s service and not to our personal success; (5) be willing to utilize our gifts wholeheartedly, not holding back anything from God’s service. God’s gifts differ in nature, power, and effectiveness according to his wisdom and graciousness, not according to our faith. Our role is to be faithful and to seek ways to serve others with what Christ has given us.” (Life Application Study Bible 1898)

“When you identify your own gifts . . . , ask how you can use them to build up God’s family. At the same time, realize that your gifts can’t do the work of the church all alone. Be thankful for people whose gifts are completely different from yours. Let your strengths balance their weaknesses, and be grateful that their abilities make up for your deficiencies. Together you can build Christ’s church.” (Life Application Study Bible 1899)

Controlled by What You Have Believed

Acts 6:1-4

In those days when the number of disciples was increasing, the Hellenistic Jews among them complained against the Hebraic Jews because their widows were being overlooked in the daily distribution of food. 2 So the Twelve gathered all the disciples together and said, “It would not be right for us to neglect the ministry of the word of God in order to wait on tables. 3 Brothers and sisters, choose seven men from among you who are known to be full of the Spirit and wisdom. We will turn this responsibility over to them 4 and will give our attention to prayer and the ministry of the word.”

My Co-Workers in Christ Jesus

Romans 16:3-4

3 Greet Priscilla and Aquila, my co-workers in Christ Jesus. 4 They
risked their lives for me. Not only I but all the churches of the
Gentiles are grateful to them.

“Priscilla and Aquila were a married couple who had become Paul’s close friends. They, along with all other Jews, had been expelled from Rome by the emperor (Acts 18:2, 3) and had moved to Corinth. There they met Paul and invited him to live with them. They were Christians before they met Paul, and probably told him much about the Roman church. Like Paul, Priscilla and Aquila were missionaries. They helped believers in Ephesus (Acts 18:18-28), in Rome when they were allowed to return, and again at Ephesus (2 Timothy 4:19).” (Life Application Study Bible 1904)

“Priscilla and Aquila ministered effectively behind the scenes. Their tools were hospitality, friendship, and person-to-person teaching. They were not public speakers, but private evangelists. For some of the Romans, their home was used for church meetings (16:5). Priscilla and Aquila challenge us with what a couple can do together to serve Christ. Do we regard our families and homes as gifts through which God can accomplish his work? How might God want to use your home and family to serve him?” (Life Application Study Bible 1904)

Bleating and Lowing

1 Samuel 15:1-4, 6-14

Samuel also said to Saul, “The LORD sent me to anoint you king over His people, over Israel. Now therefore, heed the voice of the words of the LORD. 2 Thus says the LORD of hosts: ‘I will punish Amalek for what he did to Israel, how he ambushed him on the way when he came up from Egypt. 3 Now go and attack Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and do not spare them. But kill both man and woman, infant and nursing child, ox and sheep, camel and donkey.’ ”

4 So Saul gathered the people together and numbered them in Telaim, two hundred thousand foot soldiers and ten thousand men of Judah.

6 Then Saul said to the Kenites, “Go, depart, get down from among the Amalekites, lest I destroy you with them. For you showed kindness to all the children of Israel when they came up out of Egypt.” So the Kenites departed from among the Amalekites. 7 And Saul attacked the Amalekites, from Havilah all the way to Shur, which is east of Egypt. 8 He also took Agag king of the Amalekites alive, and utterly destroyed all the people with the edge of the sword. 9 But Saul and the people spared Agag and the best of the sheep, the oxen, the fatlings, the lambs, and all that was good, and were unwilling to utterly destroy them. But everything despised and worthless, that they utterly destroyed.

10 Now the word of the LORD came to Samuel, saying, 11 “I greatly regret that I have set up Saul as king, for he has turned back from following Me, and has not performed My commandments.” And it grieved Samuel, and he cried out to the LORD all night. 12 So when Samuel rose early in the morning to meet Saul, it was told Samuel, saying, “Saul went to Carmel, and indeed, he set up a monument for himself; and he has gone on around, passed by, and gone down to Gilgal.” 13 Then Samuel went to Saul, and Saul said to him, “Blessed are you of the LORD! I have performed the commandment of the LORD.”

14 But Samuel said, “What then is this bleating of the sheep in my ears, and the lowing of the oxen which I hear?”
