One evening, our family was watching the television. The show was about cancer and the survivors of cancer, and it went into several examples of how it affected peoples lives.
Then this one man came forth to share his story. He told the interviewer how he had survived the cancer and was currently cancer-free. He was very pessimistic however, and was a firm atheist as well. He then told the interviewer, that he fully expected the cancer to return one day, and that it would end up being the death of him.
As this man finished saying this to the cameraman, one of my kids got up and went into his bedroom. After a few moments, I sensed that something was not right, so I got up and followed him into his room.
There, my son told me, that he had seen a demon come out of the television screen, and walk slowly into his bedroom. So my son had gotten up to go follow it, to see what it would do. (He didn’t want it to go hide in his bedroom, just to come out and attack him later on.) He was going to cast it out right away, but something stopped him.
The demon was sitting on his bed, looking really angry and resentful at having to be there. It was small in size, being about the same size as my son, who at the time, was only about five feet tall, if that. As my son looked at it, the word ‘harlequin’ came to mind, for that is what it resembled. Its face was covered with a black mask, and it had shoulder length hair that was the same color. It’s eyes glowed a bright red. It had a loose rectangle shaped tunic, that was covered with the traditional harlequin pattern, but in dark shades of grey and black. Under the tunic, the demon wore black tights, and his shoes were pointed and curled up into a circle at the tip.
“Who are you?” my child asked, bewildered. He had never seen such a demon before, and couldn’t understand what it was doing in his bedroom.
“I am the jinx demon,” It replied. It then showed my son a scroll that it held in his hands, along with an ink pen, that was very long. “See?” the demon said, motioning to what was written upon the scroll. “that man that you were watching out there through the television screen? He died, just as he said he would. I wrote it down here on my scroll, right when he first proclaimed it. He himself gave us permission to take his life.”
The demon then said that it was his job to go about the world and record in writing, anything us humans said, that might be of benefit for his lord satan. He especially liked to record the bad things that believers said over their lives, for this gave satan that power over them, to bring upon them the very thing that they had declared over their lives by their own tongue.
It sneered at my son, and told him that he had things written down upon his scroll, about him.
At that point, my son became repulsed by it, and promptly cast it out from his presence.
That is when I had walked into the room.
When my son finished telling me what had happened, we went back out into the living room, and continued to watch the rest of the television show.
At the very end of the show, the broadcaster told the viewers, that right as this show finished its production, this man had indeed just been told that his cancer had returned, and that he had then died just a few days later.
My son and I looked at each other, and realized that the demon had spoken the truth of what it was. So, we went before the Lord Jesus Christ, and asked Him to take back all that was said against us on that jinx’s scroll. We then told the demon that we took back all that he had written about us on that scroll, and that God’s Will would reign over us instead.
Within the next several days, I soon began to see just how much I was in the habit of speaking negative things over me and my family. It was a hard habit to break. The hardest one, was when someone would ask me while I was sick, how I was feeling. I longed to tell them all about my symptoms, hoping for sympathy and understanding, and even for their prayers, yet I did not want to cement the sickness into me any further. So instead, I would describe the demons that I was fighting against, be it headache, sore throat, or whatever, and then I would declare that the sickness was at its end, for “by His stripes I am healed”. (Isaiah 53:5) My family soon began to understand, and soon they even seen me being sick less often. Hallelujah!
So I am here to say, beware of the jinx demon. These demons roam this earth just waiting eagerly to record our negative words that they and their master satan can then use against us. Take back any negative words in Jesus name!
