“Marriage and Movies”
By McKade Marshall
A few weeks ago I overheard someone say, “Track is a lost art.” At the time, the state track meet had just been held, and local competitors had returned home. Our local athletes were the hometown pride, and there was buzz around town talking about all that happened at the state meet. Maranatha Fellowship, my home church, had our very own high school competitor Cole - the son of pastor Clint and Christi - in the event. Cole competed in the triple jump at the state meet. Many times our congregation has prayed over Cole and all of the students at our church. Time and again we hear during Sunday morning services testimonies of what God has done in and through our youth after praying over them. When I overheard the guy talking about the lost art of track, he was actually talking about a particular jumping event in track and field. It reminded me of Cole, who excels to the highest level in all he sets his mind to do. The triple jump is just one of Cole’s many incredible talents.
Recently, God has stirred up in my spirit what He is doing next in my life.
Through a series of events God has shown me that I am entering a season of love and romance, as well as writing and producing movies. My first movie script and my soulmate come in a packaged deal according to what I’ve seen and heard in the Spirit. About eight years ago I attempted to write my first movie screenplay. I only got the first page written at the time. The name of the screenplay is called “Ekklesia” and is based upon a fictional character named Ethan. Ethan is actually inspired in part by the true story of my life. In Ekklesia, Ethan discovers who he is meant to be after finding himself caught between the Hollywood dream and reality.
One night I was sitting eating yogurt after a late night workout, and I looked up and felt a presence in the room. It was an angel! The angel said to me, as I’m sitting there shoveling my honey strawberry Greek yogurt in my face, “McKade! Have you finished your movie script yet?” As I heard the angel speak, the spoon in my hand stopped in front of my face. I sat still, as I knew the Holy Spirit was speaking. The angel said it again, “McKade, when are you going to finish your first movie script?” I said, “I don’t know.” That’s all I could say. After this supernatural encounter, I texted some friends from the church about the vision. Everyone was thrilled and began declaring all sorts of blessings over this revived passion to write a movie script. That was the first big revelation.
The next revelation I received a few days later was even greater. One night I was lying in bed, and I began to ask God to show me who my soulmate was - if I even had one. My desire to get married was all of a sudden resurrected after over a decade of having no inclination to marry anytime soon. The Lord began to show me things after this prayer. In one vision I saw the only thing physically separating my soulmate and I from meeting was my human logic. In the vision I saw my future wife attached to her parents from birth, and I saw myself attached to my parents. There was this giant log, and it was blocking us from physically meeting. As I watched this vision play out, suddenly an angel came and broke the log in half. When the log broke, my soulmate and I detached from our parents from birth and began moving towards one another!
I asked the Lord what the log represented. The Lord said the log represented my soulmate’s and my logic. Our logic was keeping us from physically meeting and from realizing we were soulmates. This “logic log” came in the form of massive checklists my future wife and I had made in our minds. It was a long checklist of who that person must be, what they must look like, and so forth before we would ever marry that person. Our logic was literally keeping us apart in the natural realm. Over the next few days the Lord kept showing me vision after vision after vision about my soulmate, our wedding, and even what she looked like.
In these visions I could hear her distinct laugh, beautiful smile, and charming sense of humor.
I saw us on the wedding altar multiple times. The visions were so intense and specific that I knew it had to be the Spirit of God, as my mind could never conjure up such detailed visions. As the visions continued on and my heart began to burn with passion for this woman, I finally texted Pastor Clint and Christi and said, “We need to pray.” On Sunday, May 15th, after service, Clint, Christi, and Lee - who also operates strongly in the prophetic gifting - prayed over me. For seven minutes they prayed detailed specifics from what the Spirit was showing them about both my soulmate and the movie script. Clint prophesied that my soulmate would be very talented, that I would meet her while writing this movie script, and that she would help me in areas of the movie process that I did not know much about. He also said that it has already been written in God’s book in Heaven for us to be joined together (Psalm 139:16). Christi confirmed she was going to help me write the movie script and was in the process of it all. Christi told me a few days before that the Spirit told her my wife would be spunky (which means courageous and determined). Then Lee prophesied:
“McKade, the other word I get is ‘triple jump’. There’s going to be a triple jump in your life.”
When Lee prophesied “triple jump” my spirit leaped. My whole body felt like it was about to shoot off the ground like a rocket ship as we were praying in the Spirit before the church altar. The triple jump word immediately reminded me of Cole, who has gone to the state track meet more than once for his incredible God-given talent to jump high and far. Lee’s prophetic word stuck with me that afternoon. As I prayed into what the triple jump actually was the Spirit told me the triple jump is “Maranatha, Marriage, and Movies” - in that order. Maranatha was our home church to grow together spiritually. Marriage would follow, and the movie script would be the first of many we would create together. Friends, God is about to launch my personal life to a whole new level. I am so excited to share these detailed and yes, very personal encounters with the Lord with you. When I began this ministry I learned early on that in order to have a fruitful ministry I must make myself vulnerable to the ones I am called to minister to as well.
As a writer, minister, and entertainer, God has called me to live my life out loud.
Jesus tells us to live our faith out loud when He says in Matthew 5:14-16 (ESV), “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.” One reason I believe God has called my future wife and I to create movies and all sorts of works of art together is because He wants to display His love to the world in color, sound, and light. The creative spirit God is stirring up in my soulmate and I in this season is going to reach hearts all over the world with His great love.
In the same way, I believe God is stirring up the desires of your heart in this season.
He is reviving your marriage - or like me, God is opening the door for you to meet your soulmate and the love of your life. This is the hour when God is going to bring dormant seeds in your heart to life. The things you have given up on, God is saying, “Dead bones come alive!” (See Ezekiel 37:1-14). There is nothing impossible for God (Luke 1:37). He can breathe new life into a dormant seed (even one that has been asleep for over a decade!). God sees the desires of your heart, and He is saying, “Yes! Delight yourself in Me, and I will give you the desires of your heart.” (Psalm 37:4)
The prophetic words and prayers I have received in the months (and even many years prior) leading up to this season of marriage and movies have been spot on (one more reason to keep up with the promises God has spoken to your heart and through others). Lee prophesied a few months ago that I would have to “bob and weave” like a boxer in the upcoming days - she got the word “soul train” for my life. At the time neither she nor I knew I was about to enter the season of romance and the pursuit of my soulmate. In another time of prayer and ministry the Lord gave Lee the word, “You’re not going to be left behind enemy lines.” She prophesied that any area or piece of my life that has been left behind enemy lines is coming home - that God is making my entire life whole and complete.
What’s so profound about this word is it is the fulfillment of a prophetic word I had received during college from a prophet named Ron Campbell. Ron had prophesied that when I finished college that I would go to a coastal place - that this coastal place would be a profound place for me. It was going to be a place I found my soulmate, my purpose, and my destiny. He said I would do all sorts of things in that community. Today we all know that profound place is Malibu, California. However, there were two things that got left behind when I moved back to Texas after Malibu. The two things I was looking for in Malibu were a soulmate and movies. I got neither there.
When Lee prophesied that God was bringing everything home, she was prophesying into what Ron had spoken years before - a word that was only partially fulfilled. The two things God is bringing out from behind enemy lines is marriage and movies. I never got married, and I never got my movies. They were stolen by the enemy over a decade ago. Shortly after Clint, Christi, and Lee prayed over me regarding the soulmate and the script I began to have all sorts of encounters with the Holy Spirit. Over and over the Spirit kept telling me that my soulmate was in the neighborhood. During this time of hearing God tell me my soulmate was in my hometown I started writing the movie script with ease. The story developed. The plot and characters began to form. Details of the movie just flowed like water. I could see a creative spirit swirling in my room every night as I wrote. Then, as I continued to write, I began to see TWO creative spirits swirling in my room as I hammered out the script.
Hearing that the love of my life was in the neighborhood and seeing myself and her at the altar in recurring visions for days was a bit surreal - especially after all that had recently been prayed over me. At first I thought it might just be wishful thinking, but God kept saying it over and over. During my prayer time the Lord would say, “McKade, she is near.” For days the Holy Spirit kept telling me the same thing. Then one evening I received a text message from Lee. Lee sent a beautiful picture of a sunflower (a flower representing romance) and said, “McKade, she is near!” That night while praying the Lord said to me, “McKade, she’s not just near. She’s here!” Then, as if God were speaking through a microphone in my mind, He said, “I have ordained this!”
The next day I met a girl.
I won’t go into any details beyond that for the sake of the other person. Time will tell what happens next. Please pray for this girl. Pray for me. Pray for us. Pray for the movie script that is in progress. The movie script was almost a fourth of the way complete when we met. Another fulfillment of prophecy. The Lord showed me weeks ago that He has been refining us to the present day. I am in the refiner’s fire, and she is in the bubble bath (see Malachi 3:2-3). I have also seen our souls being knit together in the Spirit. Our souls are on the weaver’s beam being supernaturally sown into one (Mark 10:7-9). The Lord told me that the beginning of our relationship would start out messy as we are being sanctified, smooth out, then blossom like a rose.
I have been interceding for my soulmate three times a day for over two months. My inspiration for doing so comes from Daniel the prophet (Daniel 6:10). During my prayer times I have seen tremendous spiritual warfare, as the devil does not want me to have a teammate and soulmate in this ministry (Ecclesiastes 4:9). More than once I have seen snake, which are demonic forces, between she and I trying to stop what God has already ordained. As I pray in the Spirit sometimes I will see spiritual ammunition shooting at these dark principalities standing in the way.
I invite you as my ministry partners to join me in praying for this season of marriage and movies that I am in.

I declare this summer you are living out loud. As you share your experiences in the Lord with others, people are being drawn to learn more about God and His marvelous Kingdom. You are a world changer. You are a light in this darkened world. You are growing in your knowledge of God’s Word as you feed your soul with the Scriptures. Your spiritual hunger for the things of God is growing stronger this summer. God is turning up the heat so that worldly things are beginning to melt off from your soul. You are rising higher and going to soar to new levels of victory like never before. With the Lord’s help, there is nothing you cannot achieve! I love you so much, and I am praying for you every single day.
Living out loud,
