How To Remove Demons From Ourselves And Others

 

“And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues; They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover. So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.” (Mark 16:17-19, KJV)

This post has been a long time in coming. For a while it seemed that forces conspired to get me to not write it. When I finally hunkered down into the spiritual warfare battle that I realized this must be, I was then able to fight them off and finish this post.

The battle was such, that I soon realized that there must be deep truths within in it, that satan does not want shared with others, for he fought so underhandedly and determinedly. At one point I even thought of giving up the blog. But the Lord came forth and greatly encouraged me and strengthened me, henceforth this post. I feel like my whole being is shouting “praise to You Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth!”

Many are those who contact me, asking for help in being freed from demons. Most are real requests, while a few others are hidden attacks and jabs from the evil one. When I get done writing this post, I plan to add a page on this blog just on deliverance, so that all who really hunger for spiritual freedom, can access it day or night, and will not have to wait for my email response. I do not minister to people from this blog in person, as that would break my promises to my family to keep this blog anonymous. If you really feel the need to have deliverance ministered to you by another, ask the Holy Spirit for guidance, and trust that the Holy Spirit will lead you to where you need to be.

Deliverance is a way of life. It is not something done just once or for one thing. As the Lord just recently reminded me, it is a constant concerted effort to fight the good fight, and to retain one’s freedom from demonic harassment. BUT WITH JESUS IT CAN BE DONE!

Deliverance is for believers only:

http://www.greatbiblestudy.com/deliverance_for_believers.php

I suggest starting with the cleansing of your land and home first, simply because it then makes getting rid of all other demonic influence so much easier. (Close the doors so they can’t call in their reinforcements, and then get rid of their friends!)

2. http://dreamsofdunamis.wordpress.com/2013/10/01/how-to-remove-demonic-doorways-and-demons-from-your-home/

If you feel the calling to get your deliverance in a different order, then do so. Perhaps there is a demon that needs to be cast out before you can get rid of certain objects in your home. Always start where the Holy Spirit is telling you to start!

During the writing of this post, I have been delivered of demons myself. I do not know all, and I can only share with you what I have been given. Much of this post, is a compilation of other sources that have worked for me and others.

Please note that I do not agree with everything that these links may claim. Yet there is still a huge amount of truth in them, spiritual warfare wise, to be of great use to the body of Christ, so I include them in the post. For this reason, I plead with you, to always be like the Bereans and check what is being said against the scriptures. The Holy Spirit will lead us into all truth; and He will never go against His own Word. If there is a discrepancy, it is most likely satan trying to deceive, or it is man’s own interpretation of the scriptures that is at fault.

A word of warning: PLEASE make sure you are a Blood-bought believer in Christ before attempting to cast the demons out of your home! The demons are very well aware of who belongs to Jesus Christ, and who does not. Do not be like those in the bible, who got torn up by the demons because they tried to control them but did not have a relationship with God. (Acts 19:13 – 16 “Then certain of the vagabond Jews, exorcists, took upon them to call over them which had evil spirits the name of the Lord Jesus, saying, We adjure you by Jesus whom Paul preacheth. And there were seven sons of [one] Sceva, a Jew, [and] chief of the priests, which did so. And the evil spirit answered and said, Jesus I know, and Paul I know; but who are ye? And the man in whom the evil spirit was leaped on them, and overcame them, and prevailed against them, so that they fled out of that house naked and wounded.”) Give your life over to Jesus and become a believer FIRST! On how to become saved, please read: http://www.godssimpleplan.org/gsps-english.html

I have found that the biggest fallacy that hinders people from getting free from demonic influence, is the lie that Christians can’t have demons. But there were those in the New Testament who had demons, and they believed in Jesus enough to come to Him for help:
http://www.demonbuster.com/who.html and http://www.demonbuster.com/trakdel.html

Some of the nicest Christians I know, have some of the most messed up lives you could imagine. Divorce, drugs, health issues, poverty, are just some of the things that affect them. To an outsider looking in, their lives become a mockery of Christ’s promises to His children. Yet when one tries to help them, by explaining to them how to get rid of the demons plaguing their life, (and causing them such havoc,) they refuse to believe that such creatures could possible affect them in any way. I have found this to be the biggest stumbling block to the joy in their life that Christ wants them to have. Please see:
A Christian can have a demon: http://www.demonbuster.com/christi3.html

The other major stumbling block, is a believer’s own tongue. Swearing and the use of vulgar language definitely causes demons to be called towards you, yet what we say and believe as Christians can also have a tremendous effect upon our lives, and even on the lives of those around us. We have great power given to us by Jesus, and many have not yet realized its depth. The scriptures tell us that: “The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts the whole body, sets the whole course of one’s life on fire, and is itself set on fire by hell.” (James 3:6) And these scriptures: “Death and life are in the power of the tongue: and they that love it shall eat the fruit thereof.” (Proverbs 18:21) “Those who guard their lips preserve their lives, but those who speak rashly will come to ruin.” (Proverbs 21:23) “For by your words you will be acquitted, and by your words you will be condemned.” (Matthew 12:37) (See also Proverbs 13:3.) Jesus Himself told us: “If ye abide in me, and my words abide in you, ye shall ask what ye will, and it shall be done unto you.” (John 15:7) (See also John 14:13-14, John 16:24, John 14:14, John 20:31, 1 John 5:14, and Matthew 21:22.)

This means that we can proclaim a thing, (within His will,) and have it become so. Of course, this can be quite a problem for us when our words are negative ones. There is a family of demons called the jinx demons, and they just love it when we curse ourselves or our loved ones. (http://dreamsofdunamis.wordpress.com/2014/02/14/beware-of-the-jinx-demon/) When we say negative things about each other or ourselves, even if what we say is truth, we are giving the demons permission to fulfill the curse and cement it further in our lives.

There are several more ways besides this that demons can be allowed into a believer’s life.

What we eat or put into our bodies, can provide doorways for demons to attack. This also includes what we may breathe in, shoot into our body, etc. Even going under general anesthesia has caused some to be attacked. One had noted that his wife had trouble connecting with the Lord like she used to, after undergoing major surgery. After casting out any demons that may have entered during this procedure, she was able to go back to the way she was. Our family has noted that Monosodium Glutamate, fake sweeteners, and some pharmaceuticals have given us demonic trouble. Eating food sacrificed to idols, such as Easter candy or Christmas candies, have also caused us demonic trouble. (See http://dreamsofdunamis.wordpress.com/2014/04/19/food-sacrificed-unto-idols/)

Of course what you do can open up doorways also. If you are sinning, or have sinned and have yet to repent, then the demons can use this as an opening to attack you.

Where you go, can cause demons to try to attack you. For example, demons have tried to attack us while visiting Masonic buildings or other pagan places. Even going into the stores around the holidays, can be troublesome. When we went into the local Home Depot store around Halloween, they had a huge skeleton that was dressed as the grim reaper placed at the front door, ‘welcoming’ in their customers. We felt great demonic evil from it, and had to bind it up in the name of Jesus, for the demons to leave us alone.

What you listen to. Satanists and illuminists are out there, involved with the music industry, and have even put forth spells upon some of the music. Choosing to listen to such cursed music (or sounds for that matter,) can allow demons in to trouble you.

What you see. Paintings, video clips, or drawings of demons or of cursed places or things, can affect people. Demons like for you to see them, so then it is easier for them to attack you. We have had to keep an eye out for this with the internet: http://dreamsofdunamis.wordpress.com/2013/07/07/a-demon-came-through-the-computer-screen/

Who you lay hands on. Listen closely to the Holy Spirit, especially during deliverance. If the Holy Spirit is warning you not to lay hands on a person, then refrain from doing so! Be careful of whom you lay hands on. Demons can be transferred from person to person, especially through touch. This is why 1 Timothy 5:22 says: “Lay hands suddenly on no man, neither be partaker of other men’s sins: keep thyself pure.”

What you wear. Wearing Masonic or satanic things on your clothing or items, such as skulls or crossbones, witches wheels, or etc. This also includes tattoos and body piercings. Demonic doorways are created as the needle pierces the skin. Tattoos can also be a form of tribute to demons, depending on what the tattoo is – skulls, pentagrams, etc. This would still create open doorways for the demons because of the design. – a simple bow and ribbon design may not continue to attract as many demons like a skull and crossbones would. (See http://www.gotquestions.org/tattoos-sin.html for more info.)

What your ancestors have done. This is a big one. Demons love to cling to family lines. When demons stay within a family line, this is called a familiar spirit. Anyone in the family dabble in witchcraft? Anyone join the Masonic Lodge? Do you know what your ancestors were doing four hundred years ago? The sins of the parents can still affect their children, on down the line. As an example, one of my kids had a familiar demon in him, a demon of un-forgiveness, that caused him to hold long grudges against others. When it was cast out in Jesus name, it was discovered to be a resentful Lakota Indian demon, that had managed to transfer itself through the family line from my side of the family, down through the years, till we discovered it in my child.

And lastly, what others have done to you. Witches, and Satanists, spend a good deal of their time cursing believers. Unhealthy emotional ties to others who were abusive to you, or other things like this can cause the demons to try to attack you.

If you are out in public and feel attacked, you have the right to bind up demons that are causing you problems. Casting them out can be harder, especially if you are in a place that is controlled by a witch or Satanist. It is the owner of the property, (or the person renting the place,) that holds the legal right over the demons, to keep them or get rid of them. If the owner really wants them, then even if you get rid of them, they will return, for the owner has given them the legal right to do so.

Who can cast out demons? I quote demonbuster.com for the answer: “In Mark 16:17, JESUS says, “THOSE THAT BELIEVE SHALL CAST OUT DEMONS.” JESUS is talking to ME and YOU. We have no power on our own. That is why JESUS said to cast OUT demons, lay hands on the sick, and raise the dead using HIS name. The POWER of this Miracle is in USING His name.” This means that all who believe and follow Him, can cast out demons in His holy name: http://www.demonbuster.com/whoshould.html

We have found it beneficial to use the blessed (set aside for God’s use only,) olive oil while casting out a particularly nasty demon. The blessed olive oil is a symbol of the indwelling of the Holy Spirit. “And they cast out many devils, and anointed with oil many that were sick, and healed them.” (Mark 6:13 KJV) (Zechariah 4:1-6 shows why the olive oil is used as a symbol of the Holy Spirit.) Demons hate it. Often times when casting out sickness demons, there is instant pain removal the moment the oil touches the skin.

If you can, try to name the demon that is troubling you. Describing the symptoms can be its name. As demons like to work in packs, (or legions,) the use of a thesaurus is sometimes helpful. Cast out all the names that are similar, just in case.

Cover everyone with the blood of Jesus. Say “I cover us all with the blood of Jesus.”

Use scripture whenever you can. It is our sword! We have seen demons crumble and become quite weak when we read God’s Word out loud to them. Then they are much easier to get rid of. Psalm 91 is what the Old Testament priests used to fight off the demons that would try to attack the temple. We use Psalm 91 to fight off the big demons. It has always worked.

Praise Jesus! This helps to get rid of the really stubborn demons that don’t want to leave. Praising Him during troubles is an especially powerful weapon against the demons. They can’t stand it so they leave!

If these things still do not work, then try speaking in tongues. For many years, I suffered from severe period cramps. I would sit and scream and cry from the pain; they were so bad that I struggled just to walk. Nothing helped, and the doctors even opened me up to see what was wrong. They said it was a birth defect, and that there was nothing they could do for me. But one day, the Holy Spirit told me to speak in tongues, specifically to sing a hopeful song in tongues. Hallelujah! The pain lessened to the point that I could easily handle what little was left. Even though I am now beyond those years of monthly courses, I still speak in tongues whenever body pain hits me. And it always helps! (Note, be cautious in having a whole group of people speaking in tongues while you do deliverance, unless you know each one well. You do not want an undercover Satanist speaking in his tongues while you are ministering!) See also:
Speaking In Tongues: http://www.demonbuster.com/tongues.html

Note: It is always a benefit to have a praying partner while casting out demons. Luke 10:1 says: “After these things the Lord appointed other seventy also, and sent them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither he himself would come.” Your helper can be quietly praying along side of you, or they can be whispering the scriptures out loud. This can make deliverance a much smoother and quicker path. Make sure the helper is also a blood-bought believer as well. It is also good to try and cast out the demons when no other animals or children are near by.

Also note, that you can get attacked by demons, when you are trying to do the right thing. For example, many, many years ago, I got attacked something fierce, every time I tried to crack open the bible to read it. So don’t always assume that if you are getting attacked by evil, that you should stop what you are doing. If it is sin, then yes, of course stop. If you know that you are doing the will of God, then don’t. Bind up the demons troubling you, and then cast them out, in the name of Jesus.

Some have claimed that there must be some kind of sign or symptom, that shows that the demon has left. Our family has seen the demons as they came out of us, (and had symptoms such as sneezing or coughing,) and other times we could not see anything, and had no symptoms such as sneezing or coughing, but the pain was instantly gone.

For those who wish to do deliverance to strangers, please note:

http://www.christian-faith.com/how-to-cast-out-demons/

First, say “Peace be to this house”. (Luke 10:5) Then, bind up the demons in the name of Jesus: http://www.demonbuster.com/binding.html Bind up all spirits, principalities, and powers of satan in the name of Jesus. For example, you could say: “I bind up all spirits, principalities, and powers of evil that are here or near by. I bind them up in advance, and I break apart and cut all their lines of communication between them and their higher-ups. I invite the Holy Spirit to come in and work through us. I also cover this place and seal it with the blood of Jesus.”

In the scriptures, we are shown exactly how to cast out demons:

“And in the synagogue there was a man, which had a spirit of an unclean devil, and cried out with a loud voice, saying, Let [us] alone; what have we to do with thee, [thou] Jesus of Nazareth? art thou come to destroy us? I know thee who thou art; the Holy One of God. And Jesus rebuked him, saying, Hold thy peace, and come out of him. And when the devil had thrown him in the midst, he came out of him, and hurt him not. (Luke 4:33-35) Mark 5:8 8 “For he said unto him, Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit.” Mark 9:25 “… he rebuked the foul spirit, saying unto him, Thou dumb and deaf spirit, I charge thee, come out of him, and enter no more into him.” Acts 16:18 “…But Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out the same hour.”

Some people like to be led through the process, and take out one problem at a time. A Godly woman named Glynda Linkous (Lomax was her maiden name,) has a whole series on blog talk radio that does just that. I have included some of her links, for you to listen to. She will lead you though the breaking and casting out of curses, (curses keep letting demons back in, even after casting them out,); all you need to do is at the end of her talk, repeat what she says after her.

If they want to keep them, then they can not be cast out.

Books for those of you who would like to learn more:

“Blood on the Doorposts: An Advanced Course in Spiritual Warfare” by William Schnoebelen and Sharon Schnoebelen. (This is a Chick Publication. http://www.chick.com/catalog/books/0169.asp) Though I do not agree with him on which bible version is the best, (he’s a 1611 KJV only person, and I happen to appreciate the 1599 Geneva version as well as the KJV,) I HIGHLY recommend this book! I have found it to be the best one available at this time out on the market. ISBN: 0-937958-43-3 It has all three areas of spiritual warfare in it, along with eye-opening testimonies. It is one of the most dog-eared books in our library. This is the book that we read to really set us free from all the demonic harassment we were experiencing. Each one of my kids has their own private copy of it. It is that good!

Prayers That Rout Demons: Prayers for Defeating Demons and Overthrowing the Powers of Darkness” by John Eckhardt. Again, each kid has their own copy of this book, it is that helpful in fighting off evil. If you ever get tongue-tied and don’t know what to say to fight off the evil, then this book is for you. I have it in audio format, and sometimes I will play the whole CD, and the demons will vacate the house. I look upon it as a form of fumigation.

“Demon Hit List” by John Eckhardt. This book is simply a list of the demon’s names to cast out. When we brought this book home, along with the one listed above, we heard the demons crying out and saying to each other, “oh no! They have that book!”

“23 Minutes In Hell: One Man’s Story About What He Saw, Heard, and Felt in That Place of Torment” by Bill Wiese. I add this book here, because it was a big help to me, in discerning specifically what attacks were from satan. Whatever is found in hell, usually comes from satan. There were things in this book that surprised me, and I would not have thought to cast them out or bind them up before reading this book. For example, offensive odors, was one thing I had not thought to bind up in Jesus name. Yet this is commonly found in hell. So, one time in a restaurant, someone had an incredibly offensive odor upon them, and it was causing me difficulty in breathing. Remembering this book, I bound it up and cast it from me in the name of Jesus, and within a minute or so, the smell was gone and I was able to breathe freely.

This book I put last, because it has some questionable things in it. You must really have on your Berean thinking cap while going through it. However, it is included here because the chapter on deliverance to children was helpful, and as it is a long-standing book on deliverance, it may already be in someone’s library. It is: “Pigs In The Parlor: A Practical Guide to Deliverance” by Frank and Ida Mae Hammond. I will give you three issues that I have with it, as an example. (There are several more issues through out the book.) On page 31, it speaks of being baptized in the Holy Spirit, and not being baptized in the name of Jesus. This seemed quite Catholic to me. On page 42, it speaks of getting rid of ‘some’ pornographic material. Good heavens! Why only some? Why not get rid of all of it? And on page 50, the author claims that “there must always be a balance between positive and negative factors.” That sounds a bit yin and yang to me for comfort. So if you do get a hold of it, be aware of issues such as these.

Books I suggest to avoid:

The Bondage Breaker” by Neil T Anderson. Sadly, he relies a great deal on man’s solutions to a spiritual problem. He tries to combine God’s ways with modern psychology. But the Lord tells us in Isaiah 55:8 (KJV): “For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways…” You simply can not combine them and expect Godly results. The Lord told me that I had to remove the book from our home, for it would become a curse upon our family if I did not. Needless to say, it went in the trash right then and there.

“They Shall Expel Demons: What You Need to Know about Demons—Your Invisible Enemies” by Derek Prince. I found that he allows for a lack of faith and unbelieving when it comes to healing. Again, the Lord told me to get rid of the book. He even specified that I was to throw it out and not give it to another, for it would stop them from receiving their healing.

Surprisingly, many Christians go to “The Screwtape Letters” by C.S. Lewis, to get a good idea of how satan attacks us. When I read this book, I was attacked by demons who were trying to convince me that there was nothing I could really do to defeat such demons. And of course, there is nothing in the book to suggest how to get rid of demons. When my kids went to read it, they found they could not. It was either seen as a black smoky page, or when glimpses of it could be seen, no writing was there. The Lord told us to not read it and to get rid of it. (That is when we learned all about C.S. Lewis not really being a Christian.)

In conclusion, I pray that the Lord would bless you and keep you, and make His face shine down upon you, and give you His peace. I ask the Lord Jesus Christ to guide you and gift you with the Holy Spirit, the same Holy Spirit that will guide us into all truth. (John 16:13) I pray that the Lord would give you great strength and determination in getting yourself and your loved ones free from all demonic influences. I pray that this will bring you even closer to the Lord, and that you will hear from Him most clearly and frequently, as you spend more and more time with Him. I ask these same things also for myself and my loved ones. Lord, protect all Your children from the evil that is out there in this world. Amen and Hallelujah! For John 8:36 (KJV) says: “If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.”

Luke 10:1- 20 (KJV)

“After these things the Lord appointed other seventy also, and sent them two and two before his face into every city and place, whither he himself would come. Therefore said he unto them, The harvest truly is great, but the labourers are few: pray ye therefore the Lord of the harvest, that he would send forth labourers into his harvest. Go your ways: behold, I send you forth as lambs among wolves. Carry neither purse, nor scrip, nor shoes: and salute no man by the way. And into whatsoever house ye enter, first say, Peace be to this house. And if the son of peace be there, your peace shall rest upon it: if not, it shall turn to you again. And in the same house remain, eating and drinking such things as they give: for the labourer is worthy of his hire. Go not from house to house. And into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you, eat such things as are set before you: And heal the sick that are therein, and say unto them, The kingdom of God is come nigh unto you. But into whatsoever city ye enter, and they receive you not, go your ways out into the streets of the same, and say, Even the very dust of your city, which cleaveth on us, we do wipe off against you: notwithstanding be ye sure of this, that the kingdom of God is come nigh unto you. But I say unto you, that it shall be more tolerable in that day for Sodom, than for that city. Woe unto thee, Chorazin! woe unto thee, Bethsaida! for if the mighty works had been done in Tyre and Sidon, which have been done in you, they had a great while ago repented, sitting in sackcloth and ashes. But it shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the judgment, than for you. And thou, Capernaum, which art exalted to heaven, shalt be thrust down to hell. He that heareth you heareth me; and he that despiseth you despiseth me; and he that despiseth me despiseth him that sent me. And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the devils are subject unto us through thy name. And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you. Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.

The Biggest Event In This Man’s Life

A dream…

This time, I am an angel of the Lord,
A recording angel,
Sent to accompany one of the healing angels of the Lord on a mission of mercy and grace, and to answer a believer’s prayer.

We are in one of the top hospitals in the world,
In the cardiologist department.

Before me, is the head of the department,
An African-American doctor well known for his newest advanced treatments in cardiology. (He was very proud of himself, having come so far despite those who had been prejudiced against him because of his ethnicity.)

Also with him in his office, is his wife and son.

His wife is still quite pretty despite her older age, dressed in the latest of fashions, and her glossy hair smoothed out into a shoulder-length bob, and his son, a teenager, only fourteen years old, was with her. The son looked like he had taken a short break from his prep school, for he still had on the sharp looking dark blue pants and crisp white shirt, tie, and blazer that was the uniform of the private school.

It was noon, and the man’s wife and children had come to see if they could pull him away from his work for just an hour or so for lunch.

I watched, as they began to argue, for the man had already forbidden his wife and child to come and trouble him while he was working. But his wife still pleaded with him, telling him that it was the only place that he would even stop to listen to them, and since it was during his lunch break, she felt he should be able to spend some time with them.

The boy then picked up a handful of fat tongue depressors that had been sitting on the cardiologist’s desk, and began stuffing them into his suit pocket. The man became quite upset at this, and told him to stop and put them back. His son then told him that he needed them for his school project, as regular Popsicle sticks were too thin for his use. The father then returned to fighting with the mother, blaming her for interrupting his day and trying to shame her into leaving. But she would not.

I knew the man would not leave and go to lunch with his wife, for he felt could not; he had pompously just told his staff that they could take their breaks, and that he alone would stay and watch over the patients for the next half an hour. It wasn’t like the unit was full; there was only four patients in his unit, and he was very confident that he could handle it all by himself.

Of the four patients, one was his closest friend, a man he had grown up with and gone to school with. He was most worried about him, for he exhibited the worst of symptoms, and looked to be on his last breath. He hated the thought that there was not more that he could do for him, and he feared that his best friend would die under his care.

Of the remaining three patients, there was another one that he felt shouldn’t even have been admitted into his care, for he felt his case was not serious enough to warrant his attention. He remained there under his care, as a favor to another, who was on the board of directors. (He resented this.)

Suddenly, as the man and wife continued to argue, one of the heart monitors begins to fluctuate. I waited for the man to stop arguing with his wife, and go check it out, but he was not paying any attention to anything except his wife.

I went into the room of this man’s best friend, and watched the heart monitor completely change, and listened to the man warmly chuckle and laugh with joy. My angel partner was doing his work on him as he had been ordered to do by the great I AM. The man was being completely healed and strengthened, and was being told what he was to do with the rest of his life. He was to give up his previously self-centered lifestyle and serve the one who had just saved him. This pleased the man very much, for he had always wondered in the back of his mind, if there really was a God somewhere up in the heavens, and now he was getting all the proof he needed that there was. I listened to his voice, (it reminded me of James Earl Jones,) and was warmed by his enthusiasm upon receiving his instructions. I kept thinking that the cardiologist should be in this room witnessing this, but when I went back out to check in on him, he was still too engrossed in arguing with his wife.

This grieved me greatly, (as it did the Lord,) for I knew that he was missing the biggest event in this man’s life. His eternal life, and those of his family’s, was at stake. If he had been in that room, witnessing all that transpired, he would have become a believer in Christ. His then changed behavior, would have caused his wife and son to also become a believer in Jesus. But because the man had not taken the few minutes that was needed the night before, to tell his wife something that showed he still cared for her, and ask his son how he was doing in school, he was now missing the most important moment of his entire life, and even the most important moment of his friend’s life.

For from this moment on, the cardiologist would begin to grow apart from his closest friend, because he would not believe what had just happened to him, and would think his best friend was crazed. His friend would try to tell him what had really transpired in that room, but he would never come to believe it. He would peruse past the monitor’s print outs and see the return to normal heart beats, but would have no reasoning for it, except for his friend probably following his regiment so closely.

Just moments after my angel of healing partner left the cardiologist’s best friend, the other man’s heart monitor, the one who the cardiologist felt should not have even been there, began to beat erratically, and then flat lined. I went back out to check on the cardiologist, but once again, he was too involved in arguing with his wife, (trying to be self-righteous,) that he completely missed the other man’s heart alarm going off.

This saddened both me and the Lord, for we knew that all it would take to save this man, was a defibrillator  to his chest, and all would have been well again. (No prayers were ever said for this man, and he was a staunch atheist, so we did not intervene.)

But the man ended up dying. And as this man was not a believer, we knew his soul would now go down into hell. Had he lived, we had hope that he still, somehow, might have turned from his wicked ways and come to the Lord, but his time had run out and now it was too late.

The cardiologist stopped arguing with his wife, when he seen his best friend calmly walk out of his room and into his office to say goodbye. The cardiologist strongly argued then with him, that despite him felling better, he should stay in the hospital under observation, just in case his symptoms should return. But he then told him what had happened, and that he no longer had need of the sick bed, for the Lord On High had healed him.

His wife also then turned away, and with her son, left her husband there at the hospital, for she knew then that no matter what, he would not go out with them for lunch that day.

After his wife and friend left, the cardiologist checked up on the rest of his patients, and discovered the now dead man that had been forced under his care. He reviewed the records, and soon realized that he probably would have lived had he not been so distracted by his wife and son. His guilt was so strong that he never told another person at the hospital of what he had let happen, but he went home that night and blamed his wife for the man’s death. After that, the wife soon left him, and sued him for divorce, and received custody of his son.

I then woke up.

1 Corinthians 7:3-4 (1599 Geneva)

“Let the husband give unto the wife due benevolence, and likewise also the wife unto the husband. The wife hath not the power of her own body, but the husband: and likewise also the husband hath not the power of his own body, but the wife.”

1 Corinthians 7:16 (1599 Geneva)
“For what knowest thou, O wife, whether thou shalt save thine husband? Or what knowest thou, O man, whether thou shalt save thy wife?”

Malachi 2:14-16 ESV
“But you say, “Why does he not?” Because the Lord was witness between you and the wife of your youth, to whom you have been faithless, though she is your companion and your wife by covenant. Did he not make them one, with a portion of the Spirit in their union? And what was the one God seeking? Godly offspring. So guard yourselves in your spirit, and let none of you be faithless to the wife of your youth. “For the man who does not love his wife but divorces her, says the Lord, the God of Israel, covers his garment with violence, says the Lord of hosts. So guard yourselves in your spirit, and do not be faithless.”

Colossians 3:19 ESV
Husbands, love your wives, and do not be harsh with them.

Proverbs 31:10 ESV
An excellent wife who can find? She is far more precious than jewels.

John 15:13 (KJV)
“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.”

Luke 5:24-26 (KJV)
“…I say unto thee, Arise, and take up thy couch, and go into thine house. And immediately he rose up before them, and took up that whereon he lay, and departed to his own house, glorifying God. And they were all amazed, and they glorified God, and were filled with fear, saying, We have seen strange things to day.”

Something Of Good Report

Something else happened during our vacation, something of good report that I would like to share with you. It happened in Morro Bay, California.

I was struggling to carry my purse, with all the water bottles in it, (enough for all of us to use for lunch,) so I had my kids take turns in helping me to carry it while we walked amongst the ocean front shops in Morro Bay. Normally I make sure to carry my own purse, for I usually feel somehow bereft without it.

When we came to the restaurant where we were to have lunch, the kids took their water out, and I went back to carrying it myself.

There were long lines to use the lady’s room, and as I stood in line waiting, I got to know a few of them who were nearest to me. We talked about general things, mostly about Morro Bay and how each of our days were going there. After I used the lady’s room, I went back out to where my family was still in line to order. We waited a while, till it was finally our turn to order. We ordered, and sat down to wait for the food. When it came up, and was brought back to our table, I suddenly realized that my purse was missing.

I quickly asked my kids and husband, but they did not have it either.

I knew then that I had left it somewhere.

I went back to the line at the lady’s bathrooms, and asked those who were next in line, if they could check for me if they had seen it in there. They answered me with a no. No one had seen it.

Do you know what it is like, to suddenly know that your whole life that was in your purse, is simply gone? It wasn’t the loss of cash that bothered me, (I only had fifteen dollars in it,) but it was the thought of having to cancel my three bank cards, re-apply for a driver’s license, somehow manage to order and re-pay for the three prescription eye glasses that had I kept in it, and of course having to deal with the loss of my cell phone. Then there was the concern that someone would steal my identity and write out checks from my check book.

As I stood there on the busy restaurant’s patio, I looked all around me, at all the faces of those who were eating there, and I suddenly struggled just to breathe.

“Oh Jesus!” I exclaimed under my breath. “Please help me!”
(I was thinking in terms of being able to breathe and not to pass out, but in the end the Lord helped me even beyond those immediate concerns.)

One of the workers there, had overheard me asking others about the missing purse, and he came up to me, and told me to check up front to see if it was in their lost and found.

I went up to ask them, but they did not have it. They told me to ask those at the next store, just in case.

When I asked them, they let me know that they had a purse given to them not too long ago, and they were just about to call out over their intercom system my name, in an effort to reach the owner of it.

They were reluctant to hand it over to me, and asked me for identification, to prove I was who I said I was. But all my identification was in my purse. (Sadly, my driver’s license photo has me with my hair down and all fuzzy, and not up in a pony tail as I wore on that day. So the likeness was not immediate to see.) Finally, I had given them so many other pieces of information about what was in the purse, that they came to believe that it really was mine, and so they returned it to me.

As I walked back to the place where our food was, I seen two ladies sitting there at another nearby table, no longer eating, but simply watching. One of them said to the other with great excitement: “See? That is her! She got it back!”

I walked up to them, and asked them if they were the ones who had found it and turned it in to that store.

They said yes, and then the one who had found it began to tell of how she found it in the lady’s room, and couldn’t find me to return it to me, and how she wasn’t really sure of what I exactly looked like. (She remembered me with my jacket on, but I had taken it off to eat.) She was concerned that I would think that she had gone through my purse, so she just handed it over to the restaurant, who brought it to the other shop. (Apparently the shops are owned by the same person.)
I then asked her if I could give her a hug, of which she returned somewhat reluctantly. But I sensed somehow, that she was spiritually clean, and therefore o.k. to hug. I heard her then tell me that the Lord told her what to do with it, for it had happened to her many times before in her life. “That’s why I don’t carry purses anymore!,” she exclaimed to me. I excitedly asked her “You ARE a believer, aren’t you!” She gave a startled nod of agreement, and I motioned to her to give me a high-five, which she reluctantly did. At this point, I realized that she must not be too comfortable with my displays of emotion, and was probably older than I was. Her friend had all gray hair, but hers was a solid brown color. (Mine is just beginning to get streaks in it.) I figured she must have colored her hair to conceal her age. (It worked!) So I thanked her profusely several times, blessed her even more times in the name of Jesus, before leaving.

After they had left, I suddenly realized that I had forgot to offer her a monetary reward. Twice before I had lost my purse, and each time it was returned to me, I would give the finder a few twenties, as a way of thanking them. But this time, I did not have that cash to offer. Just the fifteen dollars, which seemed to be a pittance in return to what she had done for me.

“Oh Lord!” I said under my breath, “I sure wished I could have offered her a monetary reward!”

But the Lord responded to me immediately. “No Ma Petite. She would have been insulted.”

I was shocked at this. “Really? She would have?”

“Yes.”

So I sat there, and wondered what else I could do for her. Then I figured that being a believer, prayers would be the logical answer. I could do that for her instead.

So several times, during the trip, and even to this day, whenever I feel my purse, or think of her good work that she did in Jesus name, I give thanks to God for her, and I then ask the Lord to please bless her and her friend greatly, and answer whatever prayers that they are petitioning Him for. Whatever that is on their heart, whatever they desire, may the Lord give it to them with overflowing abundance! I ask this in the name of Jesus! I sensed that their need was not monetary, but was more for a loved ones salvation. Whatever it is, I ask the Lord to please grant it to them on my behalf.

For “…if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven.” (Matthew 18:19 ESV)

Thank you Jesus for answering my prayers!

Even more than the return of my purse, I greatly appreciated the meeting of another believer. After surviving the stronghold of San Luis Obispo, just knowing that there was another believer near by, and being able to worship the Lord together with them, was a gem in and of itself!

Thank you sisters, where ever you are now. Your good deed in His name will not be forgotten. Indeed, I still give glory to the Father, for what He did in you both on that day!
