i have seen this spirit on the borderlands—
so many people’s lives & i am just really feel—
from the lord that i shd teach it this spirit what does it ever does other . . .
things i’m convinced it’s a cause a divorce . . .
tribal wars church let’s family feud sibling rivalries—
ministries breaking up it is more responsible i believed in—
any other sphere if you have in yr. bloodline . . .
any mex blood for instance i’m not meskin—
where shd the server cracking down many down
but you might want to renounce & repent for their generational
make pretty if you are for mexies

active in yr. kentuck’ bloodline—
we know that someone’s alive can . . .
operate in an appalachicano
if it has meant not been dealt w. as a territory a spirit
