Oyez, Oyez, Oyez…Save The Daughters!
A town crier dates back to the 18th century, and is one who makes public pronouncements in the streets on behalf of the courts. Tradition esteems the town crier as one who rings a handbell and shouts the words “Oyez, Oyez, Oyez” before making the announcements. Oyez means “hear ye” which is a call for silence and attention. According to Wikipedia.org, the town crier tradition inspired the early beginnings of the newspaper. Thus, the term “posting a notice” derives from the town crier tradition. Temika Moore: Shining A Light With Pen And Mic is a reimagined 21st century town crier posting notices on behalf of the court of truth as commissioned by I AM, The King, The Creator, The Source, The Redeemer, and The Father to every woman asking, seeking, and knocking to know The Truth.
In a dream one night I heard the words “Temika, you are broken. You need help.” These were the words I heard after getting engaged for a second time. At the time I did not have a full interpretation of this dream. It would take almost four years for me to understand fully why I had that dream and what it meant. I will reveal to you what The Source of All Truth revealed to me about that engagement, along with insights on my marriage(s) in an upcoming post. However, on January 6, 2019, the Holy Spirit directed me to write this post. The Creator, Source of All Truth is serious about rescuing and redeeming women from the original curse brought about by naivety and the subtlety of deception. I heard in my spirit these words, “the adversary’s reign is done.” I also heard the words “It is finished.” The Source of All Truth was leading me to remove the powers of shame, guilt, condemnation, and darkness by “displaying my sin on a cross” for all to see in the same manner Yeshua was hung on a cross; bloody, beaten and battered for all to see. Sin is not pretty. Sin is costly. Sin is a bloody business. Sin is death. Death can be short or it can be protracted. But the fact still remains, sin has a judgment day. The Creator’s words are true. His written word, as outlined in the book we know as the Bible, is a tool for restoring the earth to the original state The Creator intended.
“Every part of Scripture is God-breathed and useful one way or another—showing us [the] truth, exposing our rebellion, correcting our mistakes, training us to live God’s way. Through the Word we are put together and shaped up for the tasks God has for us.”
2 Timothy 3:16-17 The Message Version
In my deliverance, I have been purposed with helping to deliver others. I am likened to the abolitionist Harriet Tubman leading those who desire to escape the bondage of living in the lower states to living in the freedom of the higher states. The business of rescue often involves risking one’s life to save others. Over the next several posts you will have an opportunity to glean my process of repentance, deliverance, and redemption. These posts are entitled, So Others Might Eat. The Hebrew word for “eat” is ʼâkal. It means to consume, take in, digest, devour, and slay. I share The Creator’s instructions, words, revelations, insights, unveiling, and discoveries for the benefit of providing sustenance to anyone who is hungry. A feast has been prepared. The table is set. Through these posts, you are invited to dine with the presence of a Holy Creator. This is Holy Communion. Bread will be broken (i.e. God’s word’s divided, separated, and processed), and wine shared (i.e. the fruit of character produced by being pressed into digestible liquid form), all done in remembrance of the Savior and Deliverer, Yeshua/Jesus/Immanuel/Son of Man/The Anointed, and Sacrificial Teacher.
I am reaching out to you because I love you. I love you as my sister. I love you because The Most High God said that all of his commandments are on display in following these two instructions:
1. Love God with all your will, intellect and emotions; AND
2. Love your neighbor as yourself.
Matthew 22:37-40 New Living Translation
He said if we do these two things, we have actually fulfilled all of his commandments. He also said to “owe nothing to anyone—except for your obligation to love one another.” Romans 13:8 (New Living Translation) Well, I have a debt I must pay to you. I am heavy with the weight of carrying this message, so I will cut to the chase.
Many years ago, in my ignorance and my own trauma and unresolved pain I had an affair with your spouse. It was the darkest period of my life. As a former spouse myself, I know you know the darkness and pain of an empty or failing marriage. That emptiness and darkness can lead one to places they never thought they would find themselves; even those who “seem” like they are believers in the true and living God. Well, I believed I was. But I wasn’t. When you love God with all your will, intellect and emotions, you don’t have an affair; you go to The Most High God when you can’t get your spouse to “see you” or talk to you. I failed. I remember going to my spouse to tell him I was feeling vulnerable the moment I realized I was in dangerous and inappropriate territory with your spouse. I was hoping my spouse could help save our marriage. I was hoping he could save me from the loneliness I was feeling in our marriage. Crickets is what I got. I remember the only thing he asked me was “Did you sleep with him?” I said do you want to go down this path? I will tell you whatever you want to know; I will not lie to you. I asked, however, are you ready to do the same with me? Once again it was crickets. I was told “whatever you’ve done is between you and God and whatever I’ve done is between me and God.” That was the beginning of the end of our marriage and it took less than a year from that point to unravel. It unraveled because it was never built on the right foundation in the first place. A crack in the foundation will eventually give way; even it takes 20 years for it to be demolished. I say all this to say, The Most High God is amazing. He knew us in our mother’s womb. So he knew the trials we’d bear. It has been an arduous process to come full circle to heal the original traumas that led to the darkness that opened a door for me to have an affair with your spouse. I am deeply saddened at the depth of my sin and how I hurt you, my neighbor, my sister.
My sister, with everything in me and with tremendous humility given by the spirit of the true and living God, I ask for your forgiveness and your family’s forgiveness. I know it has been many years and I have no desire to cause upset in your home. I want to share with you what The Most High God told me through the experience of failing. The Lord is serious about establishing his kingdom on earth. He is very serious about calling people to a higher standard. He says you will reap what you sow. He is real and that statement is true. He does not care how long it has been since you committed an infraction of character - sin. He will call everyone that seeks after him to the mat. He calls our consciences to be pure and clear before him so we can hear him speak. My God does he speak!!!!!!!! And his words are clear and it is sharper than a two edged sword; cutting through the very heart of the way in which a person is built. I’m analytical and I ask God to show me how I had gotten to the state that I would accept the crumbs of an affair. Clearly, I was broken and did not know the truth. He is true when he says when the spirit of truth comes, it will teach you what you need to know and that truth will set you free.
One night in my sleep while dreaming, I was told to read Psalms 51. My God was he speaking loud and clear! Read it when you have a moment. It will make things clear. I had read many Psalms in my life, but never saw that one; neither had I ever received a clearer instruction. It was clear what he was asking me to do. Repent - change your mind about your sin. See it as I see it. He hates sin. I hate my sin. Did I say hate? I am repulsed by the fact that darkness was in me, although I thought I was a “good person.” But he says if you come to me he is faithful to cleanse us of unrighteousness and set us on a firm foundation. He has been doing that and it has culminated in the last instruction he is requiring of me before I can close the door to the ways in which an adversarial spirit would attempt to use against me to put me in a dark, shameful, condemned regretful place. These are the emotions that provide a doorway for the enemy to temp us. He showed me no one is exempt from temptation; even the so called “good people.”
Please forgive me for my ignorance. Please forgive me for my lack of love. Please forgive me for hurting you. Please forgive me for stealing. Please forgive me for participating in a process an adversarial spirit uses to steal trust in relationships. We are all connected. What one person does, does in fact affect other people even if the world says it doesn’t matter. It does matter. If we want to live in peace with ourselves, our spouses, our families and God we must draw close to him to search, know and experience real intimacy with God. Intimacy with God draws you to him and not the arms of another person who is not your spouse. These were his instructions to me. My marriage did not end because of this affair. The affair was a conduit, and your spouse was as a messenger; an angel. An angel is a messenger; be it good or bad. It is my hope your marriage is in a good place, healed or in the process of healing. I hope this message strengthens you. I don’t know if you should share my contact with you through this message with your spouse. I defer to the spirit of God to help you navigate that terrain. It is my hope peace and love will prevail and will endure. It is my prayer your heart can receive my apology. If not, I understand. Forgiveness is a process. God says he is faithful to forgive us of all of our sins. However, he wants us to know the healing process is delayed or held up the longer we take. I know this from first hand experience. I’ve had to do a lot of forgiving of my parents, family members, and myself. This is where it has most difficult because I never thought I was capable of falling so low or failing so miserably. I am, and I did. So, I send this message to you in humble sincerity and thankfulness that The Most High God loved me enough to rescue me from ignorance so that I might share this with you. It’s been painful. But I’m thankful that God can restore truth to lives. He can rebuild broken and cracked foundations. I held in my heart maybe one day my husband would soften his heart toward God as well and repair what was broken from the beginning that led us to the dark place. I don’t know. But I see all of us through a different lens. God is extremely patient with us and wants all of us to come into the knowledge of who He truly is. It’s a process. I pray I have reached out to you at a time in your life and in the part of your life process that can receive these words with the spirit of me and God’s intent - love.
And so it shall be.
“Be careful to obey all the commands I am giving you today. Then you will live and multiply, and you will enter and occupy the land the Lord swore to give your ancestors. Remember how the Lord your God led you through the wilderness for these forty years, humbling you and testing you to prove your character, and to find out whether or not you would obey his commands. Yes, he humbled you by letting you go hungry and then feeding you with manna, a food previously unknown to you and your ancestors. He did it to teach you that people do not live by bread alone; rather, we live by every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord.”
Deuteronomy 8:1-3 New Living Translation
