A Spirit of Priest-craft

 

My husband and I had a wonderful get away for our thirtieth wedding anniversary. We were able to spend time alone with each other, and re-bond as husband and wife.

When we returned home, things were just as good between us, until one evening, we found us at each other’s throats. The abruptness of it startled both of us, and the severity of angry emotions we had not experienced in years made no sense.

The arguing was over silly small stuff, such as if we should drive a half a mile over to the next store, or if we really needed that item on the grocery list. My husband yelled at me, and I wanted to slap him! We just don’t experience those kinds of emotions anymore in our marriage, for we know well who they are really from. Even knowing this, it took several minutes to push away the attacks and reach out to each other in love. We promptly cast out the demons we thought were attacking us, in the name of Jesus. We had forgiven each other, but it still felt testy between us. I could not understand what had happened, for such an attack upon us to take place. Yes, we were away from the home, but we went to the same old places that we had no problems with before, and we bound up any demons that were in the stores as we walked through them.

So it really confused me, as to why we were attacked like that.

When we got home, we were told that our oldest son had run into that Jehovah’s witness, the mom of my other son’s friend, (yes, the one who cast us out of her home during the fire,) at the local coffee shop. She tried to manipulate my son into agreeing with whatever she said, (apparently for some reason she still blames me for what she did,) and then tried to convert him over to her religion. My children were brought up to respect their elders, so he did not know how to handle it, when she argued with him over the scriptures. He tried to stick up for what he believes, but it was not easy for him. Finally, before she left, she reached out and gave him a hug goodbye.

When I was told this, the puzzle pieces fell into place. My son and I exchanged notes on when she hugged him, (he looked at his watch just seconds afterwards,) and we then realized that hug must have taken place just moments before we were attacked. Yet it still confused me, for we were many miles apart from each other. When I went to the Lord, He told me that we were attacked by a spirit of priest-craft. These kinds of demons are found in every Jehovah’s witness, (they come from the elders in that cult,) and they are known to cause problems and fighting within marriages. Even their literature left at the front door of a home can cause issues for those who reside within. I cast them from us in the name of Jesus, and the last testiness between me and my husband finally left us.

What amazed me, was how having the woman hug my son, opened up a doorway for her demons to attack me and my husband all the way across town! I used to think that a person’s demons could not so easily transfer to you unless you were physically close to them. How wrong I was! All it took was a physical touch to my son, for her demons to attack us.

Again, the scriptures that comes to mind, is “lay hands suddenly on no man , neither be partaker of other men’s sins: keep thyself pure. ” (1 Timothy 5:22 KJV)

The Aftermath of the Fire

For us, life will never be the same. We have learned so much from this experience, things that have changed us in our daily life. We look at others differently, and we look at our God differently. Jesus is much bigger to us now, for we have seen the salvation He can bring!

We have heard of twelve other instances, where a believer used those scriptures (John 15:7-8, John 16:23-24, and Psalm 91) to make a claim upon their house, and their house was also miraculously saved! Hallelujah! It was wonderful to watch their face as they testified to me about it. The Holy Spirit’s light shone forth from their face till it seemed as if they glowed.

I also discovered that having cursed items in your home did not remove the legal right to use those scriptures to save the home! (This is a big thing for those of my readers who are stuck living with other unbelievers or pagans!) I know that my believing neighbor has cursed items in her home, for I have seen them. Her and her children are believers, while her husband is not yet a believer. Sadly, their lives testify to the cursed items being there, for great have been the troubles upon those that lived in that home!

That is one thing I have witnessed through this fire. Those who practice deliverance have a peaceful and prosperous life. Those who do not believe in such things as demons affecting Christians, or those who simply do not practice deliverance for themselves, have a life filled with problems.

I had also wondered what it would be like, to stay on land that was not blessed. When we go to stay at a hotel, we bless it with blessed oil, for we know we have the legal jurisdiction over it due to the paying of rent for its use. But we didn’t have that while staying with others during the evacuation. Both homes that we stayed in, were not blessed homes. The Jehovah’s witness home was actually under a curse besides, for the woman of the house has had it blessed by the elders of that cult. I found that much time was spent in spiritual warfare; at the JW house, it was all I could do just to keep up with the attacks. After that incident with the fire demon nightmare and that playing card, (at the unbeliever’s house,) I went out and purchased some olive oil, and then blessed it for our use. I then blessed the beds we used, for the owners of both places stated that we could sleep there. I looked at it as a matter of a gift that was being given to us, and in that case, I hoped that the spiritual laws extended to such gifts from the owner.  It must have worked, for our sleep was much better after blessing the beds.

The Jehovah’s Witnesses contacted us, several weeks after they had kicked us out of their home, saying that they were sad at how things turned out, and that they wanted to get together with us for dinner. The Lord pointed out to me, that this was not an actual apology, (in essence, they were saying that they were sad that I had acted the way I did,) and besides it was the man who initiated the email, and not the woman herself. I found out from her son, that she still felt she was in the right and had done no wrong, and that the father was in agreeance with her. My husband and I prayed to the Lord and asked Him what we should do, and He told us to have nothing further to do with them. He gave me this piece of scripture as His reasoning: “Reject him that is an heretic, after once or twice admonition, Knowing that he that is such, is perverted, and sinneth, being damned of his own self.” (Titus 3:10-11, GNV) I thought to give them another chance, but the Lord reminded me that she had many chances over those two days, as I answered her questions with the scriptures, and that even my son, who is friends with her son, also got kicked out from her home before, because he was trying to answer her questions about hell. So they have had their two chances already. I need not do any more. The Lord told me that he does not want us to go out and dine with a bunch of demons, and that this is in essence what we would be doing if we got together with them. My heart has ached over this, for I hate to think of them being cut off from Jesus.

It has also been sad to see a man that I had hopes for, turn away from Christ yet again. He was doing landscaping for us at the time of the fire. I made the claim to him that the Lord Jesus would save our home from the fire, just moments before evacuating. When he seen that it was spared, he put it all down to luck. This man has had such bad luck, always getting ill in some way, or his kids being in accidents, that I have told him that he either needs a new profession or a new God. He laughed and told me he just needs to be able to hire a bunch of workers that he can order around and everything would be fine. He has yet to understand. I pray that he will come to see that what he really needs is Jesus.

I find myself wanting to go back to those believers who have lost their homes, and testify to them about the scriptures that they could have used to save their homes, so it won’t happen to them again. Yet one of my boys pointed out to me, that they would then feel like it was their fault that their house burnt down. And I can see his point. No one likes to find out that they could have saved their home if they had just used that piece of scripture and believed. So for now, I leave it be. But there may come a time when I might be called to testify to them about it. I pray that if and when that time comes, I will be courageous enough to do it. Hosea 4:6 says “My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge…” Apparently their homes can be destroyed too.

The family who’s son called mine to warn us about the fire in the first place, and who ended up losing their home, are cessationists; they believe that speaking in tongues, casting out demons, and healing all died off with the original apostles. We testified to them, that we claimed that piece of scripture and that is why our house was saved. They frowned, but said nothing. I can only pray that the seed takes root in fertile ground. The Lord had told us not to give them any money, and I am glad that we did not, for their insurance is paying them extremely well, though they are having quite a fight with their insurance to get the money. We got a new couch, and we had planned to throw out the old one in the dump, but they asked us for it instead. When I asked the Lord if I could give it to them, He responded with such contempt that it startled me. He said “They can have your garbage!” When I asked Him why He was so angry, He told me that He longs to give them the best, but they insist on relying on man (their church,) and the government, instead of relying on HIM. He feels slighted over their choice to ignore Him. They could have so much more, but they refuse His help and His gifts.

During the middle of the night, several weeks after we had returned, I awoke to the smell of fire. Panic then hit me in the chest so hard, that for a moment I was left breathless. Satan kept trying to convince me that I should get up and go out to see if the fire was close to our house. He told me that it was only luck that saved our house in the last fire, and it would not be saved in this one. At this absurdity the spell was broken, and I laughed out loud and told him that there was no way it was just luck. I then cast him out and claimed in Jesus name that no fire would ever even get close to our house again. I then contentedly fell back asleep.

I have really appreciated the prayers of the believers out there, said on my and my family’s behalf; I could feel them strengthening us as we went through this disaster. May the Lord Jesus Christ return unto you ten times the blessings that you have asked for me!

There is a favorite piece of scripture that I’d like to share with you, that I often like to say during my prayer time. “Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it cometh. For the LORD shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken.” (Proverbs 3:25-26 KJV) Amen!

Luke 11:24-26 In Real Time With A Jehovah’s Witness

 

 

My child has a best friend, who’s mother is a Jehovah’s Witness. At first we were told that she was not a strong witness, and was still a Christian, so my son did not get too concerned about getting together with his friend in his house.

But then my son went over to his best friend’s house this past Thursday night, to work on a school project together. All seemed quiet and peaceful, until a group of Jehovah’s Witness elders came to the door, and asked to speak to this kid’s mom. She went out and spent several hours with them, talking out in the yard. My son could see and feel the demons presence. The JW elders that were visiting had huge dark demons attached to them. As they met and spoke, even more demons came forth. Towards the end of their meeting, there was a large swarm of black demons swooping around in their back yard.

My son bound them up in the name of Jesus, claiming that they could not harm him. The demons left my son alone. When my son and his friend finished their work for the night, my son left through the front door, and drove home.

That Saturday, my son and his friend got together again at his house. They planned to spend the whole evening there working on the college project together.

While they were there, his mom asked my son about a church that was not too far away. My son told her that he had been there once, and that it was a good one to try, if she was interested in checking it out. She started asking my son questions about the church, such as what they believed in. When she asked him if they believed in hell, my son told her that they did. “Do you believe in hell?,” she asked my son.

My son said “Yes.”

At this, the woman’s husband got up and left the room.

Then she started to verbally attack my son for believing in hell, claiming that the bible does not mention hell, and that hell was man’s invention, not Jehovah’s. She kept quoting from the JW ‘New World Translation’ bible, and pressuring my son to “give God a chance”.

My son used the King James Version to counter every piece of scripture that she used, showing how there is indeed, a hell, according to God’s Word. But the mom simply said that the King James Version was corrupt, and not to be trusted. At that point, my son knew it was of no use to keep arguing, for she was not willing to look at the truth.

While all this was going on, my son kept binding up and casting out the demons under his breath, that were radiating outwards from her, in the name of Jesus. But for every one he bound up and cast out, several more then entered in. It was Luke 11:24-26 in real time. He watched as the demons kept increasing and growing, till he said the very foundations of the house began to tremble and shake. (There were no actual seismic tremors recorded in the area at that time. What he felt, was spiritual. But it still shook him up just the same.)

It was very hard for my son to witness all this, for he had come to care for his best friend’s family, and to see his best friend’s mom so attacked without recourse, was just too much for him to bear.

So he started to cry. Not bawling or anything so severe, but just tears that dripped one by one from his eyes. When he looked over at his friend, he seen that his friend was also crying, just like him.

As his mom continued on with her rant, (neither my son or his friend was allowed to get a word in edgewise at this point,) My son felt the Holy Spirit tell him to get out, for the foundations of his friends house was shaking even worse, and he was not to be in it any longer.

So, forgoing all the usual polite goodbye formalities, he simply got up and walked out of the house.

His friend followed him, and they both drove back to our place.

They arrived, both still in tears. They told me what had happened, and I could see grief and shame in his friend’s expression. Apparently, this was not the first time that this boy’s mom had verbally attacked one of his friends with her Jehovah’s witness beliefs. This boy did not bring many of his friends home because of this. But this time, the boy had seen a dark shadow go into his mother. This is why he too, had started to cry.

I felt bad for the boy’s father. He is not a Jehovah’s witness, but is a believer instead. And he believes he must follow the scriptures where it says in 1 Corinthians 7:12-16, (KJV), “But to the rest speak I, not the Lord: If any brother hath a wife that believeth not, and she be pleased to dwell with him, let him not put her away.” So he remains with her, despite the spirit of the anti-Christ that resides within her. That must be a very difficult thing to do.

My son feels bad for his friend’s younger brother. He just got baptized as a Jehovah’s witness this past Saturday. Getting baptized as a Jehovah’s witness is not the same as getting baptized as a believer in Jesus Christ. When you get baptized as a Jehovah’s witness, you receive Jehovah’s witness demons. When you get baptized in the name of Jesus Christ, you receive the Holy Spirit.

We talked for several hours afterwards, going over the scriptures with the KJV, Geneva 1599, and even the 1537 Matthews bible and Tyndale’s 1526 translation (original spelling edition,) of the New Testament. Even if the Jehovah’s witnesses didn’t use the names of hell that they like to re-write their own definitions of, there was still an actual description of a place that sounded very much like hell. (It certainly could not be thought of as the grave, which is what they like to believe sheol really means.)

Then the boys discovered that the JW bible, the New World Translation, was not written by scholars well versed in the ancient languages, but was re-written by a group of nameless JW elders, to fit their beliefs.

Meanwhile I was going through a struggle all my own. I had met this woman, the mother of my son’s friend, and I had liked her. At first, I had thought that the Jehovah’s witnesses were just another denomination of Christianity, but suddenly this didn’t seem to fit anymore. So I asked the Lord Jesus if she really was a believer. And my answer was a question that He asked of me instead. “Do the Jehovah’s witnesses believe that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh?”

So I researched it, and to my great sorrow, I discovered that they do not. They don’t even believe that the Holy Spirit resides inside believers today, guiding them and directing them. And it says right in scripture: “For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.” (2 John 1:7) and in 1 John 4:1-3 it says: “Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God; and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God; this is the spirit of the antichrist, of which you have heard that it is coming, and now it is already in the world.…”

Wow. An anti-Christ!

I cried when I read this, for I knew then that her soul was not saved.

As I thought about it all, I realized that this was the first time that one of my kids had to leave a place because of the demons that were there. Usually, my kids bind them up in the name of Jesus, and the demons leave them alone in peace. He had been over at his friend’s house before, and had discussions with his mom before about Jesus, but any demons that had come forth, he had been able to bind them up in Jesus name and then change the topic.

I knew there had to be some reason that the demons were extra strong that day. So I asked my son’s friend if the witness elders might have given his mom anything to bring into the house. “Yes,” he replied. “Stacks of The Watchtower Magazine!”

Ah. I had heard of these magazines being so cursed that once they enter into a person’s home, arguing enters in and peace leaves those who reside with them.

My son also told me, that he felt one of the problems, besides the fact that she wanted to keep her demons, (meaning she wanted to stay a Jehovah’s witness,) is that it was on her territory, and that this is what gave the demons such power to attack my son.

I share this with you, for there are a number of people contacting me, asking me for help in getting free from their families or relatives demons, who believe in another religion. You need to know, that sometimes the only way to deal with it, is to stop trying to cast out their demons and simply get out of their house.

But keep praying for them. God’s Word says in James 5:16, “…The effective prayer of a righteous man can accomplish much.…”

Would you please join me in saying a quick prayer for this woman?

Dear Jesus, please remove the scales from her eyes, and reveal to her the real truth of Your word. Help her to realize, that those seven men who run the watchtower from Brooklyn New York are fallible men, and not worthy of entrusting one’s soul to. Jesus is the only one we should entrust our soul to. Come into her life and into her son’s life, and let them both have a personal relationship with You. I ask this in the name of Jesus. Amen and hallelujah!

Revelation 21:8, KJV “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”
