A Miracle: I Survived The Bite Of A Black Widow Spider

(FYI: Nothing in this missive is to be taken as medical advice. If you are in need, go to the Great Physician.)

It was in the middle of the summer, and the temperature had soared to over a hundred degrees every day for the past three weeks. Our puny little air conditioner could never seem to keep up with the heat. I was getting sick of it. Literally.

So when my husband told me that it was going to be another blistering day, I decided to take my paperwork and go downstairs to sit by the air conditioner.

But the Holy Spirit told me no. “Stay up here and work,” He told me.

But I became angry at the command. “No!” I said in response. “I am sick and tired of being so hot all the time! I’m getting a break from it!”

So I took my work and went downstairs.

It was much cooler there. I sat at the table (this was the school table where we did our work during the week,) and felt relieved as I felt the cool breeze on my skin.

Then I felt something crawling on my leg. I thought it must be the fly that had been in the kitchen earlier. I felt the Holy Spirit tell me to look and make sure, but once again, I foolishly ignored Him. Without looking, I used my other foot to brush it off my leg.

That night, began one of the worst nights of my life. My heart pounded like it was trying to escape my chest, and every time I tried to lay down, I felt my lungs fill up with fluid till I had to sit up just to breathe. My head ached, and I felt almost like I had a severe case of the flu.

For three days, I was intensely ill.

I went back to the Lord and begged for His forgiveness, and asked Him to have mercy on me and help me. I push prayed until I heard Him give me directions. He told me not to go to the hospital, but instead was to take a certain number of vitamin C’s, B vitamins, and calcium pills, and to repeat this as He instructed.

I told Him that I could not, for I had run out of calcium pills several days ago, and was waiting for the shipment to arrive any day.

“Go look,” He said.

“It’s not there, Lord! I’d just be wasting my energy!”

“GO LOOK!”, He insisted.

Sigh. I knew my God was not going to give up. So I said “Fine! I’ll go look!”

It wasn’t where I usually keep it; it was sitting right at eye level, in front of the other bottles of assorted vitamins.

I was amazed. I figured that my husband had probably seen the shipment, and had begun unpacking it for me, but got called away before he could put them all away.

I thanked God, took the medicine, and slowly started to feel better.

A week later, and I was still suffering from the strange symptoms. So I went to the doctor.

He listened to my symptoms, looked at my swollen leg, (It looked like I had a half a grapefruit hiding under the skin,) and promptly diagnosed me with a black widow spider bite. He said I was fortunate that I had survived the poison, but that there was little he could do for me now, as the worst of the danger had passed. (The anti-venom was contraindicated this late in the game.)

So I went home, and researched on line what one could do for a black widow spider bite. To my amazement, one web site suggested taking large doses of vitamin C, B vitamins, and calcium, every few hours.

I thanked my husband for putting the bottle of calcium in my closet, but he said he didn’t do it. “Maybe one of the boys did it,” he replied. I figured he must be right.

But a week later, I got a notice in my email from the supplier of those calcium pills. “We are sorry to inform you, that the product you ordered has not yet shipped out, because it is still on back order…”

I was shocked. I went back into the closet to stare at the bottle of calcium pills. They looked no different from what I usually use. They were the same brand and dose as I usually keep on hand. But I took them and hugged them to my chest, and thanked God for sending them to me. When they ran out, I wanted to keep the bottle to remember it by, but the Lord said it might become an idol and that I was not to keep it, so I threw it out.

The symptoms lasted for close to a year. It is not something I would wish upon another living thing, ever.

This last night of Hanukkah, we remember what the Lord Jesus has done for us. This was one of them.

May you be blessed abundantly by the Lord God of all,

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.

Her Imaginary Friend

My kids were in one of their classes at college, where each student had to get up in front of the class, and share with everyone, something that had happened to them in the past, that had completely changed their life.

Well, one of their classmates got up and began to share how her life had changed, when she had first met her imaginary friend in a dream.

This was a girl that both of my kids had seen before, and had felt decidedly uncomfortable around. When one of my kids had first met this girl, he had smiled at her and said “hi,” but the girl had looked right through him and then coldly ignored him. My kid thought she was just being shy, but now began to realize differently. This girl’s imaginary friend, was a demon, and this demon was jealously protecting its host from interacting with any believer.

The girl showed paintings that she had done of her imaginary friend to the classroom, and explained the imaginary world that her imaginary friend lived in. It was all quite detailed and colorful. She was a good artist.

As the girl began to describe her imaginary friend, the demon stood right there next to her.

The girl began to describe in great detail, what her imaginary friend looked like. “He has light blue skin, a pert pigs nose, and has one of its eyes missing. He is…”

At this, the girl paused, searching for words. One of my kids spoke up under his breath, and said “he’s tall!”

And even though there was no way that the girl could have heard him say this, (he was at the back of the room and she at the front,) she said “oh yes! And he’s very tall, standing about ten feet high.”

My son gave a slight nod of agreement.

The girl then said that this imaginary friend changed her life, when she accepted him as a friend, despite his disabilities. She claimed that this imaginary friend taught her not to judge others harshly, but to be accepting of everyone, no matter what their disability.

(Though evidently not so accepting of EVERYONE, given her treatment of my son earlier.)

As this girl went into details of her imaginary friend, the demon stood next to her and ran his own verbal commentary to her words describing him. The demon was full of sarcasm, and laughed at the girl’s duplicity.

The demon was very prideful at how this girl was describing him. When the girl said her friend had dark eyes that held the spark of life in them, the demon laughed mockingly, and said that his eyes actually had the spark of death in them, but that he kept this truth from her.

When the girl described how she was freed from prejudice when she was finally able to accept him with his one eye, the demon said this was when she had accepted HIM into HER life. When this happened, the demon then had a legal right to be in her life. It was clear from this girl’s presentation, that she wanted to keep him in her life, and was not willing to give him up for anything. It had become her very best friend.

It was clear that the demon always held back what he really looked like to the girl, and once again, the demon took great pride in this deception. In reality, this demon was much more like a monster, than a human. Had the girl really been able to see him as he was, my kids doubted she would be so accepting of it.

One of my kids tried to bind it up in the name of Jesus, but all this did, was stop the demon from looking at my kids. The demon simply re-directed its focus towards all the other students sitting there in the classroom.

Finally the girl ended her presentation, and returned to her seat. As she walked by one of my kids, my child pulled in his chair, to make room for the demon to get by him without touching. (The demon was far wider and bigger than the girl.) Then he realized too late, that he didn’t need to do such a thing. (I think he felt a little silly, making room for a spirit that no one else could see.)

My kids felt relieved when the class was over, and they could escape from that snide demon.

This has certainly put the topic of ‘imaginary friends’ into a new light for me. I used to think that they were just a harmless coping mechanism for children who for some reason can not handle real life at a specific time in their life. Now I am not so sure. Perhaps some are. But evidently, some are not.

I found it interesting, that the demon used the ‘ prejudice ‘ issue, to force his entry into her life. Even the Most High God does not condone prejudice. Prejudice is a demon that comes from hell, and is closely allied with the demon of hate. But here, satan used something seemingly good and worthy, (not being prejudice,) and twisted it into his own tool of ultimate deception and death.

Psalms 91:11
For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.

1 John 4:1-3 ESV

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, for 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, which you heard was coming and now is in the world already.

Romans 8:5-8 ESV

For those who live according to the flesh set their minds on the things of the flesh, but those who live according to the Spirit set their minds on the things of the Spirit. For to set the mind on the flesh is death, but to set the mind on the Spirit is life and peace. For the mind that is set on the flesh is hostile to God, for it does not submit to God’s law; indeed, it cannot. Those who are in the flesh cannot please God.

Ephesians 6:10-18 ESV

Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the schemes of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand firm. Stand therefore, having fastened on the belt of truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness,

Matthew 12:43-45 ESV

“When the unclean spirit has gone out of a person, it passes through waterless places seeking rest, but finds none. Then it says, ‘I will return to my house from which I came.’ And when it comes, it finds the house empty, swept, and put in order. Then it goes and brings with it seven other spirits more evil than itself, and they enter and dwell there, and the last state of that person is worse than the first. So also will it be with this evil generation.”
