Spiritual War

Preparation For Spiritual Warfare

August 29, 2019 

Dear Turkesha,

Sis do you remember all those days that you tarried on the altar with Bishop and Apostle Dortch? Do you remember praying on the altar at 12 noon and again at 6PM daily? Do you remember that day when you received your first prophesy at Woman With A Call, your very first spiritual conference? Remember serving as an amor bearer for Bishop and Apostle Dortch for years and the joy that you felt serving God, The Man and Woman of God? Do you remember the joy you had driving the church van picking up the people so it would alleviate stress off of your leaders? Do you remember the days that you praised God until you just fell out? Do you remember the saturdays practicing with the Liturgical Dancers so that you all were sure that you danced to the glory of God? Do you remember how God kept you through your divorce? Do you remember how God blessed you with a Corporate Position? Do you remember how you graduated with a Bachelors and a Masters Degree despite your circumstances? Do you remember when you were in need of a winter coat and Apostle Dortch made sure that you were covered physically and spiritually? Do you remember when the church had shut in service and we all worshiped and prayed together all night? Sis the list goes on and on. All of those moments were preparing you for Today, August 29, 2019. You never know when you’ll find yourself in a Spiritual War.

Sometimes you have to reflect on your past, teachings, lessons and life situations. Today was a day! Today was a day that I wouldn’t wish on my worst enemy. Today was a day that was meant to destroy and discredit me. Today was a day that I had to pull out my whole armor of God for war. You see 23 years ago when I first learned how to tarry on the altar at 1108 E. 48th Street never in my craziest dreams did I know that at that moment in time God was preparing me for 2019. I had no earthly idea that today would be one of those “Let’s Rumble” Days. It’s one thing to know that you’re gifted and anointed but you remain humble because its just a natural gift that God felt would be a good fit for me but when you attack the anointing on my life and question rather I can truly hear from God….we’ll that’s a horse of another color.

“The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds.”

2 Corinthians‬ ‭10:4‬ ‭NIV‬‬

GOD knows the weapons that we need for every battle that may come our way. The fact is People kill People Spiritually. My father taught me at a early age that you never enter a fight emotional because you CAN NEVER take back your words. In a physical fight sure you can take a blow and keep moving because it’ll sting for a minute and disappear but verbal blows sometimes last for a lifetime or linger longer than they should. There was a commercial when I was younger that said “Words Hit Harder Than A Fist’ as a little girl I had no idea what that meant until I was older. Word hurt! PERIOD! All you have is your integrity and character so it’s imperative to maintain them at any cost. You soar high when others go low. I’m reminded of a statement that hits home:

Be more concerned with your character than with your reputation. Your character is what you really are while your reputation is merely what others think you are.

As I sit here and write this post the Lord just revealed to me what Prophet Todd Hall said to me in a Prophesy that he gave me over two years ago… “You’re a Genius and you need to be glad of whoever hurt me because they brought out your talents”. God always prepares you ahead of time and I am bless to have ears to hear directly from him without waiting for a translator. The moral of this post is KEEP GOING and NEVER ALLOW ANYONE TO TRY TO KILL YOU SPIRITUALLY. I was created for a time such as this and I’m equipped for the battle. September will be a September To Remember! I’m walking BOLDLY in it with PRAYER and PURPOSEFUL PLAN!
