I was asked by Bluebirdy, whatever happened with the demonic spirit in my house. This is a repost of that situation. Just for you Bluebirdy. You are, soooo, in my prayers.
I have not written a lot lately because of a situation in my life. I wrote a bit about it in a previous post, but will now write of the whole thing.My home was inhabited by a spirit. Since, I see into the spirit realm this would not seem to be much of a problem, except that it would not leave. We tried all we knew to do. My husband and I prayed together for it to leave twice, a friend and myself prayed, I fasted and prayed, but to no avail.I could not understand why it would not bow at the knee of Jesus. I pressed in to God and received prayers from many. There was lots of advise and warnings, but nothing would help. I have removed many a demon from other peoples homes by the grace of God. But, my own home was quite the mess.After a while, our visitor, started to feel like one of us. We always wanted it to leave, but we became use to it and were no longer startled nor uncomfortable with it around.It told me its name. "Bebet". God had once shared with me that you can power over some by knowing its name. It stayed on the second floor and if someone came to the house it would come down to see who was here and then go back up stairs. It would, at times, get on top of me. When this happened it felt like a weight was on me. I would then tell it to get off of me by Jesus name and it would get off. But, it would not leave my home.Finally, a friend called and said that she thought the folks on my prophetic team should come over and pray this thing out. So, we set the date and last Saturday we prayed.After one,on the team, showed up early and we sat on my porch, this spirit came out and began to torment me. About every two minutes it would get on me. I could feel it trying to get inside of me. The feeling was unnerving but, I stood my ground.We worshiped before we started. While worshiping it visited us. Three on the prophetic team are Christian sensitives, including me. We would get dizzy when it was in the room. At one point, I realized that all three of us were walking backwards at the same time. It was pushing us back. Again we stood our ground.When we went upstairs we all prayed. There was eight of us walking from room to room. We heard it cry "help". One heard it moan and scream. For myself the battle that was going on inside of my head intensified. It was speaking to me and trying to gain control through me. I fought hard. To near exhaustion.Finally, we began to shout in prayer. To contend with the heavenlies. We cursed this thing, we praise God, we read loudly from the Bible. We stomped our feet, we cried to the Lord, and finally we won.While praying in the spirit and shouting to the Lord, those that had gone to the lower floor said that the lights were flickering and things were swaying. They were praying on the lower floor as hard as we were on the second.Praise God. Praise God. This thing is gone. Gone!!!My house has been swept clean and everything is right again. What did I learn? I learned that "This kind come out through prayer and fasting. That some times the resolution of such things is in God's plan. He may just be teaching you something. What did he teach me?He taught me that in this age, when evil is being release onto the land, that standing firm will be harder than ever. That we have never had to contend we such evil power as we will now. That demons talk common since and God in not necessarily in common since. That the victory is always God's but we do and can get in the way of victory. That if we are not prepared for battle and in this age that is upon us, we need to always be prepared, that the fight we be ongoing and our spiritual defense will be broke down.I have learned how badly we need our brothers and sisters in Christ. That through that loving family and their righteous anger love conquers all. As families should be, they will not settle for one of their own being tormented by anything.So, all in all, I have learned how to "Fight the good fight". We, as Christians, need to see the world for what it is. It is not our home and as a foreigner in a foreign land we are not accepted. Not accepted by the world nor the evil of the spirit realm. In this place of prejudiced we have to be close to the one who gives us strength, who gives us courage and who gives us love. We can not go into battle without Him. We can not battle the forces around us without the light of God not His weapons. We need, above how, to prepareThis is not a time to be lazy not compliant. This is a time to prepare.Ephesians 6:12For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.With this in mind we should prepare for the coming and existing battle. Because the enemy is not dumb, he attacks with familiarity, He knows you and finds ways to attack that are personal and can be emotional. He is creative and clever in battle and without God there is no way that you will be prepared. So, prepare. Press into God and put on your weapons of warfare and never take them off. You, my friend, walk in victory, but only if you prepare.Romans 8:36-39"For your sake we face death all day long; we are considered as sheep to be slaughtered." No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
