A True love story
Gerald and Yvette Benton’s marriage is a living testimony to the efficacy of God’s restoring power. When things looked absolutely impossible from every viewpoint, God asked Yvette to trust Him at His Word. She did and their world was turned upside down, in an absolutely miraculous way. What started out as a sure fire certain to end up in divorce disaster, was transformed into a real life love story by a wife taking a no holds barred stand on the Word of God.
I joined the Amy in January...And already I am seeing huge breakthroughs in my marriage...we have been together for 13 years married for 6 years with no real changes until now !!! Wow GOD thank You for the Helpmeet Army !!! And GOD bless the Benton's for obeying Your instructions on starting all of this 🙌😄🙌😄🙌 I am in it for life !!! Boots to the ground !! 👢👢 Mrs. J Villers 🕊️
I am blessed to have found this ministry. I have been praying and seeking the Lord looking for help on what to do with my marriage. My husband has moved out but I give God the glory because if He did it for you and your family He can do it for me and my family. I’m ready to start fighting.. I will have another testimony in Gods timing. I feel good that I am not alone. I know God will never leave me nor forsake me. I have been binging on the videos and now I am purchasing some reading material as well. Thank you GYM🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽
Just a quick comment, although I pray I will give a testimonial in time! \r\nIn your Helpmeet Companion Journal, it is mentioned that we are to swallow our pride. I contend that we need to release it to the Cross of Christ, so we will not store it in our heart- bc it will come out in one form or another….ie bitterness, rage, depression, etc. A very necessary act in the process of forgiveness and growing in our relationship with our husbands, and our KING! \r\n\r\nThank you for your wonderful ministry! To God be the Glory!
I think God was thinking of Gerald and Yvette Benton when He said "the two shall become one". It is hard to know where one stops and the other begins. The love for each other and their ability to "be" together is a true gift to marriages in the body. Dr. Ivy Bonk
II am currently standing for the restoration of my marriage. My husband and I have been divorced going on 2 years, I filed because I allowed the stress of things to start affecting my health. I am so thankful for your ministry, I listened to some of your Youtube videos when we separated 5 years ago and he came home but I took my eyes off Christ and things went south. At the time I didn't truly understand what God was asking me to do and I honestly wasn't ready to yield to His instructions. I believe all things happen for a reason and here I am again. This time more mature in Christ, willing and ready to fight the enemy in the spirit for my husband! I thank you both for being so raw, obedient, open and transparent. I can not wait until my husband comes home and we can build our marriage on God's firm foundation and principles. When the enemy tries to come in to try to distract me or discourage me, I pray and bind the enemy first and then I find a video (that's always ON TIME) of yours to watch. What you both are doing is not in vain. I am 38 years old and I firmly believe in God's restoration power in marriage. This isn't an easy task that's why so many run from it, but it's worth my husband's soul being saved and my marriage restored. God bless you both! I can't wait to give my PRAISE REPORT soon, because I believe God is moving!!
God’s wisdom is sovereign!!! I divinely stumbled into Gerald Benton on YouTube. While I thought the primary purpose of this ministry in my life involved restoration of my marriage…God had a few surprises. I would have NEVER imagined or considered how drastically my life and walk would change. While my marriage is important to God, it’s not all that mattered. I matter to Him, I matter!!! That is being reveled countless times over from the introduction and evolving purpose of this ministry in my life. God loves me. My ability to hear His voice matured. I’ve learned so much about my identity, purpose, gifts and callings in this ministry. How they relate to every aspect of my life and especially as a Helpmeet Suitable. I gained a family, a whole army of sisters. I don’t go alone. I learned spiritual warfare tactics and strategies, too. I’m a demon gutter!! GUT!! I’ve embarked on the journey of a lifetime. Where the treasure, wealth and riches are immeasurable and beyond comprehension. I’m better than blessed as a direct result!! Love this ministry, it’s leaders and affiliates.
The Bentons. Gerald & Yvette are visionaries who can help any church, ministry or business be better at implementation of it\'s mission and goals. The solid foundation of knowledge and experience that they possess has proven to make them leaders in their craft, good communicators and insightful. Individuals and leaders of today can use this ministry to boost their readiness for projects, training and other support therefore enabling anyone to be better equipped to carryout their mission and vision. The Bentons are masters at positively impacting individuals and helping them to sustain personal growth in any season of life. Gerald and. Yvette Ministries would be an superb asset to all who partner with them.
Gerald and Yvette Ministries is such a blessing to me. God connected me with this anointed marriage ministry and beautiful couple at a time when I felt like there was no hope for my marriage to be restored. The powerful transparent testimony of Gerald and Yvette Benton has given me new strategies on how to pray for my husband and my marriage, new hope, and strength to keep standing on the Word of God. Hearing the testimony of Gerald Benton gave me a better understanding on how my husband is affected, how he feels, and how tricky the enemy can be, but God has already worked everything out for our good in the name of Jesus. I am encouraged and empowered through this ministry to fight in the spirit, pray, declare God's Word over my husband and marriage, and stand for my marriage no matter what. I believe it by faith and through the application of the Word of God with the lessons and prayers over my marriage, my marriage is restored, healed, and it is an anointed marriage and ministry to help others just as the Benton's are fighting for us. I pray that God will continue to bless and prosper the Benton Family in abundance in the name of Jesus. Thank you for believing God with me for my marriage!
So I thought my home was peaceful. Then Holy Spirit began to deal with me. In what spirit am I operating in with my children and husband? We can speak with authority and be at peace and we can speak with authority and be aggressive, agitated, unsettled, flustered and disturbed 😩. This is the reason why I have more peace outside of the home. I have the most peace because I escape from having to deal with the real issue ME. I thought it was my children and husband because some or a lot of the things they do disturbed me because control was speaking! 🙄… ...The most challenging times are when I’m tired, have a lot to get done and when the children seem to not be listening. Lord you are my strength. Now I am seeing things much clearer and I’m ready to work on myself in this area! Lord, I think you for setting me free. I’m holding on to my peace and the atmosphere in my home will bear fruit of the peace that I give! Thank you, Daddy & Momma Benton, for speaking the truth always! I will forever give God thanks for you both! I thank you God, for allowing my heart to be open to receive the wisdom and understanding you are given, which allowed me to get the deliverance I needed. 🥾🥾⚔️⚔️✌️✌️❤️❤️ — ￼feeling peaceful with Yvette Benton and Gerald Benton.
My husband and I are yet again separated but I can honestly say that as the stander I am the one who keeps leaving. My prodigal is an in home prodigal who reminds me so much of Gerald (actions wise) except for the leaving. My husband told me if I left again that we would not try again but he did hold up his end of the deal by changing when we got back together. I can openly and honestly say that I did not keep up my prayer life and we immediately went back to arguing and he completely disconnected and shut down. I know as much as I would like to move on God is not calling me to do that. I know He is teaching me and building me and I declare and decree that God will save my husband and my marriage. I did take him divorce documents after he told me he didn't want to try again but he refused to sign them. I know the enemy has a stronghold on him and the change isn't coming easy but I refuse to give up. Divorce is easy for my generation and the one thing my husband and I said before marriage is that we are only doing this once. I am thankful for a ministry like yours. I am grateful for your transparencies and I pray that you continue helping marriages. I have gleaned so much wisdom from watching your broadcast and I have even shared some with my husband. I can't tell if he actually is watching them but I know God is doing something. Continue to pray for us as we continue this journey of reconciliation and salvation for my husband.
S.W.A.T has changed my life. Satan has been using me as a punching bag for years. He was almost successful at destroying me, my husband, my marriage and my family!! Until Gerald and Yvette came into my life. I began to learn about spiritual warfare and how to be a suitable helpmeet. They began counseling, teaching and training me how to fight the enemy and intercede for my family. They instilled in me that God made and designed me to be a spiritual warrior. God gave us weapons to fight the enemy and his attacks. I was made to fight the enemy and take authority over the demonic assignments he has against me my marriage and family. Now my husband and my children counsel with them and my family is being restored. I will get back everything the enemy has stolen plus 1000 fold!! I thank God for Gerald, Yvette and S.W.A.T!! Everyone needs to join and be taught how to effectively fight the enemy and use our spiritual weapons!!! Boots to the ground 🥾🥾⚔️🛡🏹🎯💥💥
SWAT HELPMEET training and counseling under the tutelage of the Holy Spirit through two might Warrors in the Faith, has/is helping me to be suitable for my ordained purpose with God. Gerald and Yvette Benton has help me to see who I am in God and who He is in me. By simply being a living TESTimony for the Glory of God our Lord. They are an answer to my prayer. Thank you both for your sacrifice and transparency to lift Jesus higher...💞
Papa God spent a few years prepping me for the work that would be required of me in S.W.A.T. So grateful I didn’t give up on the call. This group is def a lifeline for me. 🥾🥾 to the ground!
I know yall gonna laugh but I'm serious! There is so much I can say about Ma and Pop Benton. But I will say in the last few month S.W.A.T has taught me and kept me from shooting blanks! With my sword in my hand I've learned how to hit the bulleyes🎯. When I shoot with the word of God I'm shooting to kill. Bootcamp Tallahassee changed my life! War words are no longer empty! We in S.W.A.T. Do damage to the kingdom of darkness in that order! #SWAT #Prophetess #Sharpshooter
I am now a SWAT Warrior thanks to the mentoring and training I am receiving. I never knew the power I had nor my importance to the Kingdom and Army of God until this training. I am forever grateful to my Mentor and Spiritual Mom for saying YES to her call as our Commander and to my SWAT Sister Warriors for joining me in this spiritual battle!
