I have a couple testimonies to share before I get into the warfare bit.
First, last Thursday - 29 March 2018 - my mom's garage door was kept sticking and got totally stuck when I was headed out (in a borrowed car). This is after it'd already been worked on by able-minded repairmen. Twice. Here it is that someone's expecting me to pick them up and return their vehicle and I can't get the garage door open to get out. When I arrived there I debated about whether I should even pull in to the garage because I was only grabbing something and wouldn't be there very long.
I grabbed the ladder to see if I could see what the problem was. All I could tell is that it was sticking at the same spot and wouldn't go any further and it was making this horrible screeching noise every time it moved. The weather was great that day, too, so half the neighbors were outside hearing, if not also watching, my garage door fiasco. I pushed the button again and again, and it would stop again and again.
I called in angels and asked for help, and then remembered I had a bottle of anointing oil in my pocket. I pulled it out, poured it on the track, pushed the button and there it went. When I came back yesterday evening, I asked if the garage door was working, and she said, "Yep ... I guess it needed some WD-40, but your anointed oil worked just fine." 😁
I LOVE anointing oil!
Next, at the last minute I got on a commuter flight yesterday that's usually booked full. There are several flights a day between my hometown and Seattle. The 530p daily flight takes commuters who fly to Seattle each morning home to Pasco at the end of the work day. This flight is usually full because of its after work time slot and because the next flight to Pasco isn't until 1115p or so. With prayer, I booked this flight only 15 hours before departure and, praise God, got a seat on it. This is an example of God's favor being released on my healed timeline. You can read more about that here. I missed this same flight last Wednesday - 28 March 2018 - because a meeting ran long and had to take the 1130p flight; again the favor of a healed timeline prevailed and I got a free first class upgrade on the later flight as repayment for that demonic theft. 😊
Now on to the good stuffs.
Patti Cake and I are in this intense prayer season because the enemy overplayed their hand, got caught and now we're mad. I'm talking big mad. I prayed in tongues for three hours last Thursday (3/29/18) - that's how big mad I am, and have been praying two or more hours a day since then. We're not playing here; they're gonna pay and they're gonna pay big. And now that I have a week of rest ahead of me, they're gonna get prayer, tongues AND fasting. They're gonna get spanked - again - by The King of Everything and they're gonna wish they'd chilled messing with us.
If you recall I taught two courses on tongues last year because that weapon saved my life. In March 2017 I was losing it ... literally going cray. I'd run all my friends off because I was so mad at God. Side Note: You can get as mad as God as you want to; He can handle it. I'm a witness. BUT if you don't get it under control in a decent amount of time, the enemy will begin to tear your mind apart. Again I'm a witness. Anyhoo, Holy Spirit has enough invested in me to send reinforcements when needed so I didn't go totally into left field. Instead of giving in to the enemy and losing my mind I went on a 4-day fast, praying in tongues two hours each day. By the evening of the second day, The Lord had shown up and I was getting right. At the end of the four days, I was full of revelation and my spirit was so on fire I was praying in tongues even as I slept.
If you don't have tongues, yet, you betta get some. Ask and receive. And if you don't get it when you ask, keep asking and fight. We all have areas where the spiritual dynamics behind the issue keep us blocked and bound. It's easy to give up and not receive tongues, but that's not God's will for you and that's not who He created you to be. Like it or not He created you a warrior. And there are battles galore out there for you to fight. Witness.
I have much more to share about what I've been learning, but that's enough for now. I'm gonna go take communion and pray for a bit before going to bed. Good night and morning (since it's 1:54 a.m. PDT).

One of the things Almighty God is addressing in our
prayer season is the SY5779 Conference. It's going to be
very different than I'd originally thought, but The Lord
gave Patti Cake and myself a similar format individually,
so that's obvi what He wants to take place.
This year's conference will be intimate, deep deliverance
so that you get the freedom you need to receive
your abundant harvests, and we've been in
constant preparation and training so that we're
equipped with the tools and the proper authority to help
you on your way. We hope you'll join us. Tickets
are available at www.ZariBanks.co. Limited spots.
