What Ebola Really Is

In the middle of the night, my Lord woke me up.

“Ma Petite! Ma Petite!” He whispered to me with urgency. Over and over He whispered my name, until I began to wake up. He was quite persistent, and very, very patient. It took several minutes for me to wake me up, for I was in a deep sleep. But finally I was awake enough to respond to Him.

“Yes, Lord?” I mumbled. “What is it?”

I sensed Him overlooking all the earth. “Ebola! EBOLA! Oh Ma Petite,” He says, with great sorrow in His voice, “My children FEAR Ebola, and this is not My Will for them!”

“Oh?” I said, rubbing the last bit of sleep from my eyes.

Then I felt Him turn directly to me.

“What about you, Ma Petite? Do YOU fear Ebola?”

I thought about it for a moment before answering. “No.”

“Why not?” the Lord asked me. He was quite insistent in hearing my answer.

I thought for a moment, before answering. I was wide awake now. “Because I know what Ebola really is.”

I sensed the Lord nod in agreement, pleased with my answer, before turning back to the earth.

“Tell My children, Ma Petite. Tell them what Ebola really is. They need to know too, Ma Petite, so they do not live in fear of it anymore.”

“Tell them what Ebola really is!”

That very morning, I began to think about what I would say in this post.

Then satan, (that weaseling snake,) came and whispered in my ear.

“But this virus is DIFFERENT than all the other viruses you’ve dealt with. This one is MAN MADE! You can’t fight off this one like you have all the others. The other ones were natural. They were easier to fight off. This one is DIFFERENT!”

Sadly, I listened to his poisoned words, and began to ponder upon them.

Then, a little while later, doubt entered in.

I began to research Ebola, to try to discover more about this virus. Sure enough, there were those who claimed it was indeed, man made.

For a whole week, it stopped me from writing, as I dug deeper into all the information that is out there on the virus.

As I dug deeper, FEAR entered in to me as well. I myself began to fear the virus. If it was indeed different, then how would I be able to fight it off? It got so bad that I became immobilized from the fear. I could do little else, than just sit there in front of my computer, in the fear.

Then I couldn’t take it anymore, and turned back to God in prayer. I told Him how sad I was, that instead of doing what He had asked of me, that I too, was now hit with that same fear that the Lord said His children, my brothers and sisters in Christ, were suffering from. I asked Him to forgive me, and to help me to SEE the answer that I knew must be there somewhere. I figured that God wouldn’t ask me to do something that I could not do. Somewhere, someway, God would make the way.

He didn’t respond to my questions immediately. Instead, He told me to go out with my husband for dinner, (a real treat for us,) and to talk to him about it.

So we went out, and I told my husband while we were at dinner, about the message I had received from God, and then about the doubt that had crept in.

Now, those of you who have been following this blog for a while now, can guess as to what I believe viruses really are.

They are DEMONS, nothing more, nothing less.

Yet the whole man made part really threw me, for if man made it, then there would be no demons in it, for as far as I know, man can not make demons.

But then my beloved husband asks me, “What if the demons for this ‘Ebola’ had been created long ago, and have simply been tucked away waiting for their time upon the earth?”

Wow, relief! I agreed with him. I could see this happening easily, for even in Revelation, it speaks of demons being held back until their appointed time. So why not ones for Ebola?

Then after dinner, the Lord told me to share what I was going through with one of my kids.

When I did, it was pointed out to me, (by the kid who can see so easily into the unseen world,) that many evil things have been created by man before, and those things usually have some really bad demons attached to them. When man makes something that is meant for evil, it is a sin. And wherever sin is, there are demons.

Then the Lord told me to spend some time reading from one of my favorite books on healing, called “His Healing Power”, by Lilian B. Yeomans, M. D. (ISBN-13: 978-1-57794-819-3, and ISBN-10: 1-57794-819-X.) This book has always been a TREMENDOUS help in boosting up my belief that one could be healed. The author was an MD, a licensed physician, and she gave up her practice, because she found that she had far better results with just the Word of God alone. The Lord saved her out of the claws of addiction, (an addiction to morphine,) after being told by other doctors that she was a hopeless case and had just a few months to live. She lived far longer, and brought healing to many through her testimonies. She has seen MANY DEADLY DISEASES CURED by the Holy Spirit. It is a book I HIGHLY recommend getting for your library!
Well, anyways, after reading her book again, the last of my doubts were removed, and then I was able to go ahead and write this post.

I share this struggle with you, to show how devious satan can be, and how he attacks those who are trying to do God’s Will.

Now that I look back upon it, it seems so silly, to doubt God just because the virus might be man made. I am actually ashamed to admit that something that silly stopped me. But that is how satan works. He distorts one’s vision with his doubts, so you can not see the truth.

One thing that really interested me during my research into Ebola, was that some of the people who wore the containment suits, still came down with Ebola. And some of the comments placed about this sounded so bewildered; they even pointed out that the workers must have been very careful in the use of their suits, for they knew it was a matter of life and death. Yet they still became sick from Ebola. Of course they were saying this, thinking of how severely contagious it must be. Yet when I first read this, I almost shouted out loud “demon!”, so clear was the revelation from this example. After all, a containment suit is no protection from a demon. Spirits would go right through it!

Then all the demon would have had to do, is place its lying symptoms of say, fever, headache, and muscle aches for example, on to the person, and then if the person believed those lies, The symptoms would become his, and the disease could then enter in and do its damage to the person.

Yes, I can just imagine all those who may read this and think “Wow is she foolish!”(1 Corinthians 1:18,) yet I am here to testify, that I DO NOT GET SICK FROM VIRUSES ANYMORE.

And for me, this is quite the blessing and a miracle besides!

For those of you who do not know this, many years ago, a group of doctors proclaimed that I had only a few months to live. They had given up on me, and told me that I had maybe three to four months left to live, six at the most. Yet thankfully the Lord had other ideas for me. (Thank You Jesus Christ of Nazareth!)

At first, (after being sent home to die,) I got into all the herbs and vitamins that one could take for my illnesses, and soon satan had me convinced that I had to take all these vitamins and herbs, or I would get sick again. If I missed one, I got sick. I’d still get sick even if I didn’t realize that I had missed one, until many days later. I was taking over sixty pills a day just to stay healthy! Much of our money was wasted on this stuff. Thousands upon thousands of dollars was spent on it, year after year. I came into bondage to those vitamins and herbs. I lived in fear of when the powers that be would simply declare them illegal and then cut off my supply. I figured that then I would die.

Then one day the many vitamins and herbs I took couldn’t stop another ‘incurable’ disease from attacking me.

I kept praying and asking the Lord to come save me. In return, the Lord kept asking me to give up all the herbs and vitamins that I was taking.

It was during this time, that I learned that sicknesses, especially viruses, were caused by demons. And the Lord was teaching me all about casting them out in His Name, and in claiming good health also in His perfect name.

So, I claimed that I could go off all those vitamins and herbs, and still not get more sick.

And then I did. I went off of them, and I found that I was not just free from having to swallow all those pills, but I was free from that so-called ‘incurable’ diseases, too! Hallelujah!

Now I will say, that there are times when the Lord will tell me, to eat a certain fruit, or take a few vitamins or herbs, but it is in no way even close to what I had been doing before. Just a few here and there, and then just for a day or two. There are months that can go by, without the Lord telling me to take anything.

And yet the viruses do not get me.

Oh they have tried. But now THEY LOOSE EVERY SINGLE TIME.

It usually starts out, with a swollen gland, or slight sore throat. And then I hear a demon from the pit of hell, whispering in my ear, “Your throat is starting to hurt, and your glands are starting to swell up. Your getting sick…”

And then I stop whatever it was that I was doing, to address the evil imp right away. (Waiting only gives satan time to push more lying symptoms onto me, in the hopes that I will accept them as my own by default.) I say right out loud, (it must be out loud, for satan can not read ones mind,) “You’re a liar satan! I don’t believe you at all! These symptoms are LIES! They are NOT MINE! They belong to YOU! THEY ARE YOURS! Take your lying symptoms and get out! Go where my Lord God will have you go! I forbid any of your replacing spirits to take your place! Get out and trouble me no more!”

Next, I pull out some scriptures and read it out loud. Sometimes Psalm 91, other times I will say some of my other favorite scriptures, like: “I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, to give you a hope and a future.”, and “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not unto your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths.” (Jeremiah 29:11, Proverbs 3:5-6.) Singing praises to Him also helps; if I can not remember any praise songs to Him at that moment, I will sing a joyous song in tongues, knowing that the Lord will interpret what is in my heart.

Then I claim, out loud, that all lying symptoms will be gone within the hour or less, in the name of Jesus. (Sometimes I have claimed that the lying symptoms are gone already, while other times the Lord has had me claim that they will be gone by morning light, but this is usually when I have let it go for too long, before trying to fight it off.) I say out loud” “FOR IF YOU LIVE IN ME, AND MY WORD LIVES IN YOU, YOU MAY ASK ME FOR ANYTHING IN MY NAME, AND YOU WILL RECEIVE IT, IN ORDER TO GIVE GLORY TO THE FATHER, AND IN ORDER THAT YOUR JOY WOULD BE FULL.” (John 15:7, John 14:13-14, and John 16:23-24.)

Then I covered myself (verbally) with the blood of Jesus, (Revelation 12:11 & 1:5, Romans 5:9, 1 John 1:7-9) and then asked the Lord to send His angels down to watch over me and protect me from satan’s attacks. (Psalm 34:7.)

Every time my body is prompted with more symptoms, (or more of the same ones,) I repeat this process and call him a liar all over again. Sometimes I have felt the prompting of the Holy Spirit to get another believer to anoint me with the blessed olive oil, (a symbol of the Holy Spirit,) and ask for the indwelling of the Holy Spirit to help the process along. (James 5:14-16, Mark 6:13, Luke 10:34, Psalms 23:5.) This has been especially helpful in fighting off headaches and migraines. Sometimes the moment the oil touches my temple, the pain IMMEDIATELY leaves. Other times, it takes a short while for the pain to go. Demons hate blessed olive oil! (To bless the oil to be used for anointing oil is to proclaim it to be blessed in the name of Jesus. I suggest holding up the bottle and saying “Jesus, please bless this oil in Your name, and fill it with Your Holy Spirit. It is now set aside as blessing oil, and is to be used as a symbol of Your Holy Spirit’s indwelling.”) Note: Do NOT use the old testament oil, a special mixture of herbs and oil, for your blessing. This often carries the spirit of priest-craft in it. (Exodus 30:31 – 30:33.) Just use plain olive oil. (Some success has been seen using just regular vegetable oil, and in one case, motor oil, if there is nothing else available.) Do note however, healing happens most of the time without any oil, so if you are too poor to buy some, HAVE NO FEAR, the Lord will know this, and still keep you well without it!

The first time I tried all this, I actually fell asleep fighting off satan. He kept at me so diligently, that I resorted to speaking out loud small scriptures, just so I wouldn’t have to listen to him taunt and pester me anymore. I kept saying over an over again: “No evil dis-ease shall cleave to my body, in the name of my Lord Jesus Christ!”, and “By His stripes I am healed!” and “He heals me from ALL my disease!” (I get these sayings from Psalm 103:3, and Isaiah 53:5,) till I fell asleep. In the morning, all the lying symptoms were GONE.

For the most part, the sicknesses stopped. (Not the attacks, just the sicknesses.) Then I realized that I was still getting sick about twice a year. No matter how hard I fought off satan’s lying symptoms, I’d still end up sick. Bewildered, I went to the Lord and asked Him why I still fell sick at those times. (I knew it must be something I had done, for God was perfect and I was not.) The Lord then reminded me that I had told others that I now only get sick about twice a year. So here I was, verbally giving the jinx demon permission to win control over me twice a year! After verbally taking back those words, and telling the jinx demon to cross those words off of his list of self-imposed curses, the sicknesses stopped. I HAVEN’T BEEN SICK SINCE!

Satan will try to hit you with doubt; expect it and be ready for it. He does not like to give up his control over you easily. He wants you to continue to believe his lies. He likes to see you sick and miserable and too weak to do anything for the kingdom of God.

Satan has even used other believers to attack me with doubt. I have had those who claim that only SOME of the sicknesses are from demons; the rest are ‘real’ and ‘natural’, and they must be treated with herbs and even medicines.

But then satan would always try to get me to wonder, which sicknesses were from satan, and which ones were not. (And of course, the one I’d be currently trying to fight off, would always be the one that satan claimed could not be fought off with the Word of God and faith alone.)

Finally, I realized that this was a doctrine from demons, and not from God. There are many scriptures that claim that Jesus wants His children to have health, healing, and wholeness. My favorite one says that He came to give life and that you might have it more abundantly, and that it was satan that comes to steal, kill, and destroy. (John 10:10.)

Another doctrine of demons to be aware of, is the use of Paul’s thorn to defend sickness. (2 Cor. 12:7-10.) But if you read the passage carefully, you will find that Paul’s thorn was actually a messenger, an evil fallen angel, sent by satan to continually hit Paul with persecutions, because he was serving the Lord so faithfully. That thorn had nothing to do with an ‘incurable’ sickness! For an eye-opening teaching on this, please see: http://www.awmi.net/extra/article/pauls_thorn .

So, what will you now do, after reading this testimony? Will you live in fear of Ebola? If you do, you have just given the Jinx demon an opening for the Ebola virus (or any other virus for that matter,) to attack you. God’s people are not to live in fear of such things. It is not His Will for you to suffer like that!

If you start having symptoms of sickness, what will you do? Will you fight it off as if it is a real attack from an enemy that is hovering right next to you? Will you tell it forcefully, and with deep belief, that it is nothing but a liar, and that those symptoms the devil has been putting on you are nothing but satan’s lies? (Ephesians 2:6.) Will you have some scriptures ready, to use to fight it off?

Yes, you can prepare to fight off Ebola, or any other virus. And if you are reading this post, then you have access to a computer, which means you have access to the Word of God, and this means you already have everything you have to have to fight these demons off!

Now if you hear the Lord tell you to store up some Nano Silver 10 PPM or simple colloidal silver, or other immune boosting herbs and vitamins, (or whatever,) then do so. Like Mary, the mother of Jesus said in John 2:5, “Do whatever he tells you.” Sometimes the Lord will use what is at your disposal, (or at His,) to bring forth His miracle, just like bathing in the Jordan river, or rubbing mud on the eyes. (2 Kings 5:10, John 9:6.) Just know, that IT IS POSSIBLE to be healed without any of them! (Matthew 8:5-17, Matthew 9:35, Mark 5:34, Luke 8:43-56.)

To all of God’s children: May you continue to fight the good fight! May the Lord bless you and keep you, and may His face shine down upon you and give you HIS PEACE!

I thought about putting a bunch of scriptures here on healing, (there are many,) but the Lord wanted me to focus on finding scriptures on fear instead.

A Jehovah’s Witness

I met a nice lady in a clothing store the other day. And of course, we got to talking about God.

She told me she was a Jehovah’s witness.

She asked me about my denomination, and I told her that I had none, and was simply a believer in Jesus Christ.

We discovered that neither of us celebrated the usual pagan holidays like Christmas and Easter, and we even agreed that a person’s birthday should be marked differently than how the world celebrates it.

This made sense to me, for there was not the usual worldly demons attached to her, that were found on many of the people.

She shared with me, how her denomination is so persecuted and hated, and of the many fallacies that are out there in the world concerning her religion.

I was surprised to discover, that they spend great time just studying and memorizing all of the scriptures. (I had thought that they did not use as much of the scriptures as they do, but relied on other outside teachings instead.)

I was also surprised to discover that her religion was not one that taught of hard male dominance within a marriage, but one that believed that the woman should respect her husband, and the man should love his wife as he does his own body. No firm patriarchal dominance was taught, as can be found within other sects of Christianity.

I shared with her, some of the things I have been learning these past few years about demons, and how the Lord Jesus Christ gave us the power to cast them out in His name. “It completely changed my life,” I told her. “Before, when I was not aware of them, my life was such a mess! Constant fighting with my husband and my children, always seeming to have bad things happening to me and my family, from financial things to health issues. But now that I have been casting them out, all those problems are no more!”

Then I asked her, if their denomination believed in casting out demons in Jesus name.

“Oh we believe that there are such things as demons, we really do! We know that they can affect a person’s life no small amount!”

“Yes,” I said, “but do YOU cast them out in Jesus name?”

Something in her expression changed then, and she became more wary. “We believe that only some people have been given that gift.”

(Evidently, she believed she had not been one of those that had been given such a gift.)

I tried to tell her that all believers had been given this gift, but she did not believe it. “Besides,” She said, “I wouldn’t even know how to cast one out by myself.”

“Oh that’s easy,” I replied. “You simply say out loud, ‘Demon, I cast you out in the name of Jesus’.”

I told her then, that I could not sense the usual demons on her, which is why I had started talking to her. This puzzled me now, for if she did not cast them out in Jesus name, why is it that she did not have so many that they could easily be sensed?

It was then that I discovered that they read many scriptures out loud on a daily basis. That would be enough to at least cripple and discourage many demons from hanging around her, for my kids have well described to me what happens to demons when scripture is read out loud in their presence. They cringe as if in great pain, and crumble up into a little ball.

But still, they do not necessarily leave. Only casting them out in Jesus name will do that.

She asked me if I had ever been to one of their halls, and I told her no, but that one of my boys had gone one time with a friend during Passover.

She smiled, pleased with my answer. “And what did he think of it?”

I inwardly cringed. How could I tell her without causing her pain? But I also knew I could not lie or skirt around what he had found. So I simply came out and told her.

“He witnessed huge demons hanging over the leaders. They were attached to them.”

I expected a denial from her, for I knew that I had revealed a hurtful truth about her false religion. But what she said next just floored me.

Her eyes grew huge with excitement, and she said, “I knew it! I knew I was in the right religion!”

This time it was my own eyes that grew huge. I was shocked! Never had I suspected that she would respond with such an assertion!

“Well,” I said to her, still flabbergasted, “that doesn’t necessarily mean that you are in the right religion!”

“Well of course it does!” she replied. “It says so right in scripture! God’s Word tells us that His children will be persecuted and attacked by satan!”

“But we’re not supposed to keep the demons,” I replied.

She frowned. “Well, no, of course not,” she said.

I then explained to her, that the influx of demons in the churches in our area, (she knew at that point that I lived far out into the country,) was why we did not go to any of them on a regular basis.

“Well,” she responded, “no church is perfect. They are filled with imperfect people.”

“But they don’t have to keep their demons,” I answered.

I then told her that none of the churches within an hour’s drive from our home believed in casting out demons, and that this was why those churches were filled with them. I then told her of one church that I once knew of where we used to live, that did not have any in it, and that it was because they were quite proactive in casting any out, before, during, and after their services.

We were then interrupted by the sales person, so our conversation ended, and we said our goodbye’s.

It saddened me, to watch her depart, still thinking that she herself could not cast out a demon.

But at least now she knows how to, if she should ever change her mind…

* * * *

Later on that night, I went and did some research on the religion known as Jehovah’s Witness. It saddened me, to learn what I did. There are some serious problems in  their teachings. They have their own version of the bible where they changed certain words and passages so that they back up these teachings. Those that made the changes had no scholarly background, and could not even translate the relevant ancient languages needed for the few passages they changed. This woman had been a Christian for all of her life, and she had been searching for a church that kept God’s ways but could not find one. They all celebrated the pagan holidays. Then she found Jehovah’s Witness. They did not celebrate such things, and because of this, she told me she joined up with them.  All the other differences between Christianity and Jehovah’s Witness, she summed up as simply ‘not being perfect’. I looked at her while we were talking and realized, she had settled for second best.

Some other things noted about this religion:

They do not believe that unbelievers go to hell when they die. They do not believe that humans have a soul that lives on after the physical death.

“While the Jehovah Witnesses believe that Jesus lived and died, they do not believe everything that he claims about himself. They do not believe that he is God but has been created by God. He is still very important to God but not in essence God. They believe that he is in fact the archangel Gabriel become man. And while they believed he dies and paid a ransom for the sins of humanity, they do not believe that he rose again bodily but spiritually and materialized a new body in order to appear before his disciples.” http://christianity.net.au/questions/how_do_christians_and_jehovas_witness_differ

They believe that Jesus has already returned in spirit form, in 1914.

They believe that only 144,000 will be up in heaven. The rest will remain on earth.

There is no grace for them as we know it. They work to earn their salvation, by doing ‘kingdom publishing ‘ work.

“They don’t have a personal relationship with Christ (who they say is not God), but rather they observe a system of law and works…They also consider any salute to a flag as worship of that flag, and therefore prohibited. They don’t vote, hold public office or serve in the military.”  http://www.chick.com/bc/1985/jehovahswitness.asp

“The Witnesses are taught that the world is under the devil’s control. To leave the organization is to fall under Satan’s control…Because the Witnesses are taught that Armageddon could arrive at any moment, he/she would be destroyed at Armageddon if they were to leave. The Witnesses believe that the Watchtower organization is God’s “Ark of Salvation.” (That sounds like something a cult would say to keep you with them!)   http://www.chick.com/information/religions/jw/rescue.asp

Their history is filled with false prophecies. Their leaders also claim to speak for God.
“Founder Charles Taze Russell made several early predictions and pronouncements such as the start of the millennium in 1872, that Jesus actually came in 1874, and that 1914 would see, “The end of a war that would destroy the kingdoms of this world and fully establish the Kingdom of God.” When it became obvious that the prophecies had failed, the dates were revised only to have them fail again. Heinze elaborates on the many failed predictions including the building of a mansion in 1929 in San Diego, California for “faithful men of old” who were soon to be resurrected to take charge of the earth. The house eventually became an embarrassing monument to their failed prophecy so it was sold in 1948. Heinze points out that, since these failed prophecies were based on erroneous interpretations of Bible, how can one trust the Watchtower to rightly divide the Scriptures when it comes to their doctrine?”   http://www.chick.com/bc/2000/failedprophecies.asp

They also do not believe in blood transfusions. However, I must say in their defense, our family can see some truth in this particular belief. We have seen that the demons just love the blood of an unbeliever that has been spilled. They congregate around it, increase their numbers with it, and draw strength from it. So, after seeing that, no one in our family would ever knowingly accept the blood of an unbeliever into their veins. A believer’s blood, yes. An unbeliever’s, no.

And after eight days again his disciples were within, and Thomas with them: then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said, Peace be unto you. Then saith he to Thomas, Reach hither thy finger, and behold my hands; and reach hither thy hand, and thrust it into my side: and be not faithless, but believing.

And it came to pass, that the beggar died, and was carried by the angels into Abraham’s bosom: the rich man also died, and was buried; And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments, and seeth Abraham afar off, and Lazarus in his bosom. And he cried and said, Father Abraham, have mercy on me, and send Lazarus, that he may dip the tip of his finger in water, and cool my tongue; for I am tormented in this flame. But Abraham said, Son, remember that thou in thy lifetime receivedst thy good things, and likewise Lazarus evil things: but now he is comforted, and thou art tormented. And beside all this, between us and you there is a great gulf fixed: so that they which would pass from hence to you cannot; neither can they pass to us, that would come from thence. Then he said, I pray thee therefore, father, that thou wouldest send him to my father’s house: For I have five brethren; that he may testify unto them, lest they also come into this place of torment. Abraham saith unto him, They have Moses and the prophets; let them hear them. And he said, Nay, father Abraham: but if one went unto them from the dead, they will repent. And he said unto him, If they hear not Moses and the prophets, neither will they be persuaded, though one rose from the dead.”

The Broadcast Of Fear

The other day, I was listening to a piece of news at night, in the form of a radio podcast. The topic was on people disappearing, and it started talking about the recent airplane that disappeared. The front of the youtube picture, had the radio numbers and other identifying items written across the screen. At the bottom of it, and towards the center, was a picture of a green alien, holding out his hand and making the ‘peace’ symbol with his fingers.

The news had come from one of my usual Christian sources, so I figured that those that put on the radio show, were also believers.

However, looking at that green alien drawn across their title page, made me wonder. As I stared at it, I sensed a slow insidious demonic attack coming from it, but I just figured that it was from someone who did not understand that aliens are demonic. So, to be safe, I kept the computer screen closed during the recording, so it could not affect me.

As I listened to the recording, about a half hour into the program, they changed the topic and began to discuss the thousands of unsolved missing person cases that have happened in the national parks. For the next half hour, I listened to them describe the profiles of those gone missing. Then with sudden chills in the back of my neck, I realized that I was not alone in the room.

Fear was there with me.

It tried to make me doubt the Lord’s protection over my family, and to question with great fear, a possible future vacation into one of the national parks.

I realized then, that simply closing the computer screen had not kept out the evil. Even though there was no openly evil or pagan things discussed on this show, somehow evil had still permeated the room.

So I opened back up the computer, and shut down the web link, right in the middle of the radio program. I then closed the portal (by claiming it to be so in Jesus name,) and then I cast out the demons that I sensed in the room.

But the whole thing left me feeling kind of uneasy.

So I went out into the kitchen to get a glass of water. Moments later, one of my kids had evidently woken up, and came out to see what was going on, for he had been attacked by demons in his dream. He told me, that he had a nightmare that our family was camping out in one of the national parks, and him and one of his brothers had gotten lost within the park, and that something very evil was chasing them.

I then quickly told him what I had been listening to, and we then cast out any remaining demons together, blessed each other with the blessed olive oil, and then my son went back to bed.

It wasn’t till the next day, that we realized that it had been during the first few hours of the spring equinox, that this had happened to us.

(Much evil in general is wrought during the spring equinox.)

It was interesting for me to discover, that simply closing the computer screen was not enough to keep any demonic interference from the room. It was also interesting, to find that even though the words themselves coming from the recording were not evil, (I still believe that the broadcast was created by Christians,) the story itself was still evil enough for satan to try to use against us.

The Lord Jesus then admonished me to listen to the Holy Spirit that He put inside me, and when I sense that something is not quite clean, to simply turn away from it completely, and have nothing to do with it. If the news message is that important for me to receive, Then the Lord Jesus will find another way to give it to me.
