Our Assignment will require the nature, skills and mentality of a warrior...
Our assignment will move us from one battle to another. Adversity is inevitable our enemy observes all progress. God will mentor us in warfare. The scriptures say “He trains my hands for battle; he strengthens my arm to draw a bronze bow.” Psalm 18; 34 “Praise the Lord, who is my rock. He trains my hands for war and gives my fingers skill for battle.” Psalm 144:1.
A warrior only uses the weapons that never failed him. David rejects the weapons of other while fighting Goliath. A warrior refuses to use the armor and weaponry of others who had failed before him. The tactics of the civil rights movement are old and outdated can’t use at all. A warrior knows he has something his enemy fears. Our unity puts fear in the enemy when we are organizing with the love of the Brotherhood and sisterhood.
A warrior knows the true source of his competence and confidence. The True God has brought us this far and he refuses to leave us now the spirit of our ancestors are following us, we have a Rendezvous with Destiny! A warrior knows that the power of God is greater than the enemy’s weapon. In thes criptures it states “Thou comest to me with a sword and a spear and with a shield; but I come to thee in the name of the Lord of host the God of the armies of Israel, whom thou have defied” One learned believer can put to flight 10 men! Holy Qur’an & Samuel 17;40
A warrior often uses, in his greatest battles, the skills developed in his daily routine. What we do daily to survive will come in handy A warrior expects to be an instrument in the hands of God to destroy his enemy. David said “This day the Lord will give you into my hands. I will knock you down and cut off your head. This day I will give the dead bodies of the army of the Philistines to the birds of the sky and the wild animals of the earth. Then all the earth may know that there is a God in Israel.” 1Samuel 17:46 Allah said in the “It was not you who destroy them it was I who destroyed them by your hands” God will use us to destroy this wicked enemy! The world will know that the Black Man and Women in America are directly from God and he walks with us!
A warrior expects his enemies to fall and he publicly predicts his victory. “This day the Lord will give you into my hands. I will knock you down and cut off your head.” 1Samuel 17; 46 “When those who hate me turn away, they fall and are lost from you. For you have stood by my right actions you sit on your throne and are right in how you judge. You have spoken sharp words to the nations and have destroyed the sinful. You have thrown out their name forever and ever. Those who fight against you are finished forever. You have destroyed their cities. They will be remembered no more. But the Lord lives forever. He has set up His throne to say who is guilty or not. He will punish the world by what is right. He will be fair as He rules the people. Psalm 9;3-5,7 We must speak that hardcore truth to power and to our people spare NONE! We were taught the Fall of America!
A Warrior stays on the offensive running toward his enemy. Then the Philistine rose up and came to meet David. And David rushed to the center of the valley to meet the Philistine. 1 Samuel 17;48 Brother Fred Hampton said ” When these mother fuckers go we go” We must never take a step backward we continue to attack call out the wicked and these dump Negros none will be spared!
A warrior expects the spectators of the battle to observe and experience the power of God. When our people see us and hear us battle this enemy they will be in awe of the things they will hear us say and the things they see us do. It will empower them to do the same, remember you first heard the truth of Elijah Muhammad and Malcolm X and Minister Farrakhan people said he must be God talking about the enemy like that bring that raw truth.
A warrior keeps vibrant memories of past victories. David said to Saul, “Your servant was taking care of his father’s sheep. When a lion or a bear came and took a lamb from the flock, I went after him and fought him and saved it from his mouth. When he came against me, I took hold of him by the hair of his head and hit him and killed him. Your servant has killed both the lion and the bear. And this Philistine who has not gone through our religious act will be like one of them, for he has made fun of the armies of the living God.” 1Samuel 17; 34-36 we don’t forget the victories tell them and let our people experience the victories through our stories it will empower them to do the same.
