Let the “Prophetess Juanita Bynum” case be a lesson to you! By Elaine Davenport ( Thursday, October 10, 2007)

Observations from the Frontlines………..

* This is not about gossip; it’s about Spiritual Warfare………stay in the spirit and not in the flesh.

This is a story about a mighty man and a mighty woman of God; both faithful and obedient, who became a husband and wife in the eyes of God who also were called to bring forth a powerful ministry together. They have been given a powerful assignment. They were on a mission in this life to minister to families, particularly to married couples. The job of the enemy was to destroy them and their ministry; but what could he possibly do? What could they do to keep from falling prey to the adversary? Every believer, every minister with an assignment from God needs to pay attention.

Hitler wasn’t satisfied at killing the Jewish people (and he did; the Holocaust was very real), he needed to conquer the world. (I am appalled that anyone could think or say otherwise about Hitler and what he did to the Jewish people.) Don’t be naive.

The devil won’t be satisfied to bring down just one ministry; he thinks he can cause a domino effect. He knows his time is short. The work will be cut short in righteousness!

Juanita Bynum was on the Tom Joyner Morning Show not long ago and his comment appeared to have caught her offtrack.

Basically, he asked her if she was a prophetess; why didn’t she know that something was coming.

Wow! What a comment. What a reminder. It is really hard for any of us who walk close with God to know what’s going to happen next. I believe that we all get warnings. For the bible says:

For whom the LORD loveth he correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighteth. Proverbs 3: 12



(Well, that question asked by Tom Joyner makes sense…to a certain degree).

* This is not being said as a criticism; far from it. It’s just that we have to stay on guard.

Being a prophetess or holding any office in the ministry may or may not enable one to see all of the devils snares or traps. However, knowing how to hear from God and allowing Him to order our steps will keep us out of harm’s way when we “hearken” to His instructions. Also, saints of God have to always know that satan wants to handicap and deform everyone that he can. God will take what the enemy meant for bad for Prophetess Bynum and Bishop Weeks and turn it for good.

I know that God loves Prophetess Juanita Bynum and Bishop Weeks.

At her Women on the Frontlines Conference, it was reported that Prophetess Bynum used lines from the singer Beyonce’s song To the Left.

Now many of you may not understand why this is significant. You may think it is being critical of her for using wordly phrases” in her vernacular to minister; but it isn’t. I certainly don’t know what God placed on her heart to use nor does anyone. The dangerous part is that some thought it to be some covert implication that she empathized with any woman who needed to “kick” her husband to the curb and was encouraging it. I don’t even know if that the intent; I wasn’t there. It could have been taken out of context, I don’t know. Since we believe by the bible that we call those things that be not as though they were; many viewed her comments to be detrimental in thought towards her own marriage.

So what we see is that in whatever ministry that you are in, there is a straight and narrow path. It may be popular to move back and forth in terms of what we say to allow people to understand that we empathize and understand the dilemmas that they face, but we must take heed when we do say.

What happened to Prophetess Juanita Bynum and Bishop Weeks? We don’t know what happened, but guaranteed it started days before they hit that parking lot because that’s how the enemy operates. Even a blind man could see that. It should be an affront to all of the saints and all in the ministry. It’s an all out attack by satan and there’s more to come! Be ready! Be prayed up! Be on guard! Pray in the Spirit and stay in the Spirit! Watch out for set ups and set backs! Please continue to pray for them no matter what it looks like.
Whatever your assignment is- push on, persevere; you will be successful if you stay on the path. Learn a lesson here.

What’s your ministry focus? What’s your assignment? Figure out what could weaken it or nullify it…and be on guard.

    God is in control of this situation. He knows the end from the begining and Romans 4:21 says And being fully persuaded that God will perform that which He has promised. For both husband and wife. God will perfect that which concerns them. We will keep praying for them. Together or apart. God loves them both immensely.

    Dearest Florence, thanks for writing! I knew that there had to be level headed Christians out there who are grounded in the Word of God who could see this thing from a kingdom perspective! We have been focusing our prayers on Great Britain regarding the passing of the law which gives seven years of prison to those that speak against homosexuals in the ministry. Blessings & Love Sister Elaine
