Let the “Prophetess Juanita Bynum” case be a lesson to you! (Part Two) Friday, October 12, 2007

October 12, 2007

Before you begin; if you haven’t already, please read Part One

* Editor’s Note: In the scheme of things there are far more important things going on in terms of Warfare and that’s a fact. I guess this case is Warfare 101. They must be celebrating in hell. However, we all know that satan’s victories are always short lived.

Prophetess Juanita Bynum and Bishop Weeks; oh what a story. Two ministers fighting in public; now it’s so unusual you have to know it’s Spiritual Warfare! The story isn’t about what happened on the parking lot that day (that everyone knows about). It’s going to be about what happened before that for some. Still, for others; we see things from a different perspective. It’s our lifestyle we understand that the Plan of God is far greater than concentration on a disagreement between two private individuals who just happen to live public lives.

We don’t know specifically…but much will unfold as the enemy continues to strike to paint an ugly picture of the body of Christ. Sounds like a soap opera, but it isn’t. It’s satan’s playground and the outer rim, opportunities he uses to slip in a wreak havoc in your life. The part that you or I know about may only be the beginning, but let’s hope that we’re near victory and pray that the Body of Christ rallies to their side. Yes, they may have shortcomings, but let none of us cast stones, but instead pray for them and love them.

The case seems to be attracting so much attention that it literally turns them into the “Jim & Tammie Faye Baker’s” of the New Millennium. In the end; this may all read like a great thriller for there is much that the public does not know. Yet for the saints of God; no matter how it reads; it’s Spiritual Warfare.

There is a great deal that people are not aware of regarding the events that led to that fateful day. Now surfacing are reports that the couple faced some financial challenges. For people of the world; it could do them in , but for people of God who are faithful and obedient; it should not.

We all must be good stewards over our finances and we must all pray for our spiritual leaders and their ability to remain responsible, ethical and obedient.

A simple component; yet so vital is clearly missing and that component is: Love. Let’s Take a look at 1 Corinthians 13 from the Message Bible:

(THE ANSWERS LIE IN HERE…BUT I WARN YOU THAT IF YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND WARFARE; YOU WON’T GET THE REVELATION)

1 Corinthians 13 (The Message)

1 Corinthians 13

The Way of Love

1 If I speak with human eloquence and angelic ecstasy but don’t love, I’m nothing but the creaking of a rusty gate. 2If I speak God’s Word with power, revealing all his mysteries and making everything plain as day, and if I have faith that says to a mountain, “Jump,” and it jumps, but I don’t love, I’m nothing. 3-7If I give everything I own to the poor and even go to the stake to be burned as a martyr, but I don’t love, I’ve gotten nowhere. So, no matter what I say, what I believe, and what I do, I’m bankrupt without love.

Love never gives up.
Love cares more for others than for self.
Love doesn’t want what it doesn’t have.
Love doesn’t strut,
Doesn’t have a swelled head,
Doesn’t force itself on others,
Isn’t always “me first,”
Doesn’t fly off the handle,
Doesn’t keep score of the sins of others,
Doesn’t revel when others grovel,
Takes pleasure in the flowering of truth,
Puts up with anything,
Trusts God always,
Always looks for the best,
Never looks back,
But keeps going to the end. 8-10Love never dies. Inspired speech will be over some day; praying in tongues will end; understanding will reach its limit. We know only a portion of the truth, and what we say about God is always incomplete. But when the Complete arrives, our incompletes will be canceled.

11When I was an infant at my mother’s breast, I gurgled and cooed like any infant. When I grew up, I left those infant ways for good.

12We don’t yet see things clearly. We’re squinting in a fog, peering through a mist. But it won’t be long before the weather clears and the sun shines bright! We’ll see it all then, see it all as clearly as God sees us, knowing him directly just as he knows us!

13But for right now, until that completeness, we have three things to do to lead us toward that consummation: Trust steadily in God, hope unswervingly, love extravagantly. And the best of the three is love.

    I was personally dissapointed at first when I had the news about the prophetess especially after reading her book that dealt with issues of the heart. I am okay now because the holy spirit revealed to me that no one is immune to spiritual attacks and worse still if we do not wage a Godly war we could continue to please the devil. I pray that this couple do not seek the resolutions from wordly courts but go back to their Creator who has shown us great mercies by sending us Jesus our Lord and Saviour. I agree with 1 Corithians 13 ‘love does not keep scores of other peoples’ wrongs’. The two need to go on their knees and ask forgiveness from God and forgive each other. God still reigns and He will restore their love.
