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. (There is even more on fear than there is on healing!) I have listed only my favorites. (Most of these quotes are KJV. ) What I found was interesting…

“NO WEAPON FORMED AGAINST YOU SHALL PROSPER, And every tongue which rises against you in judgment you shall condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, And their righteousness is from Me,” Says the Lord.” Isaiah 54:17

Thankful For The Food I Had Been Given

A dream…

I was going to meet a friend of mine
So we could spend some time talking to each other
And get caught up on what was going on in each others families. (To hear the latest news)

She asked me to meet her
At the local food bank
For that was the only time she had open.
(She had young children.)

When I pulled into the parking lot,
I could see it was very busy. There was just one or two spots left for a car to park.

I found one not too far away from my friend’s,
And caught up to her as she was walking up to the building.

There were many people waiting in line
To receive their free food,
And we were towards the end of the line.

We talked and chatted,
Until we were close to the food.

Then my friend was next.
She reached down and grabbed her box of food,
And as I was about to follow her,
A man stopped me and insisted that I take a box of food.

So I took one, feeling like a fraud,
For I still had enough food to last us for another week,
Or maybe two if we didn’t eat too much.
After that, I’d be out of food just like everyone else.
But I still had hope that my husband would find a job
So we could get some money to buy some food.
He’d only been out of work for about a year and a half.
We had been living off the food we had stored up,
When we had the money to put into it.
But I kept thinking that there must be others there,
That needed the food far more than I did.

As we both walked back to our cars,
I could see the police man watching us,
Watching everyone,
And I felt a moment of fear,
That I would somehow be caught,
And prosecuted
For taking food while I still had some.

But no one was checking for identification,
Nor asking for proof of need,
So we continued on
Till we reached our cars.

I found myself wondering if I looked that poor,
That I would need such items.
But I then realized with a sinking heart, that I was indeed, thin and gaunt. I had thought that to be so thin was in fashion, but I sensed then, that I had become too thin.

I felt shame at this, for I could well remember the days when I myself had donated food to the food pantry,
Or given them money to buy whatever food they had needed to help feed the poor.

But I never thought it would be our family
That would need the help.

When my friend and I came to her car,
I offered her the box of food that had been given to me.
But she insisted that I keep it for myself.

She drove off, waving to me,
While I still stood there holding my box of free food.

I looked down at the box,
And realized that there was enough to keep a family of four going for only about three days or so.

Most of it, (all of it?) was dry goods.
Rice, beans, boxed side dishes that needed water added to cook it, pancake mixes and other such items. There was even an opened bag of white flour, rolled closed and taped shut. There looked to be about three cups of the flour inside it.
The box was an open pallet type box, that might have once been used for fruit or vegetables,
But there was no fruit or vegetables in it now.
Fresh produce of any kind, was hard to find.
I realized, that they had put all the items in the boxes,
So that everyone could see that everyone was getting the same thing as everyone else. (They feared food riots otherwise.)

I then wondered, if my friend knew that I’d probably have to be there next week, to ask for the free food right along with her, and figured that I could probably use a head start.

I thanked her in my mind, (and resolved myself to thank her next week when I seen her here again,) for giving me the nudge I needed.

As I was putting the food into the back of the car,
I seen that they were putting out some fresh baked goods,
As an added bonus for the people.

Many of the people had already left,
But there were still enough people left,
To receive the handout.

So I walked up to where they were giving out the bread,
But by the time I got there,
All the loaves were gone. A man there offered me to have three cinnamon rolls (dry and stale ones,) in liew of the loaf of bread. I gladly accepted it with thanks.
He gave me a brisk hug, and then told me to come again, and get the free food, and to not suffer so because of my pride.
(He reminded me of a dear elderly gentleman that I had once known in my church, who was always caring for and helping out others.) He then motioned to me to get in line for the cinnamon rolls with icing on them, that they would be handing out next.

So I did.

They gave me a huge piece of green plastic,
(not quite as thick as a tarp,)
But I was confused and went back and then told them that I had wanted the roll instead. (I realized that the plastic was given out to those who didn’t even have a roof over their heads or a tent to shelter in. We were not that bad yet! We had a nice tent waiting for us at home if we needed it.)

But by this time, the workers were in a battle between themselves, concerning some trivial matter of who said what to whom, and left the food to go argue it out inside.

The people were left there, waiting for the food.

I got tired of waiting for them,
Even though I was next in line,
(I had already waited for over a half an hour,)
So I lunged forward towards one of the tables that had a roll with icing on it, (not the ones with lots of icing on it that I had hoped for, but one with some on it all the same,) and was able to pick up the one on the corner of the tray.

Gasps of the people closest to me could be heard,
(and one saying “Hey! That’s not fair!”,)
But I walked back to my car, licking my fingers from the icing, and quickly, thankfully, devoured the entire roll.
(I think some of the others behind me in line, also tried to grab a roll for themselves, while the workers bickered away the time inside the building.) The workers finally came back out and finished helping the people, till all the rolls were gone.

I drove home, my stomach no longer growling at me, thankful for the food that I had been given.

I then woke up form the dream.

When I went back to bed,
I dreamed that I had somehow been given,
(inherited?) a bunch of rabbits and a pair of hamsters.
Even the cages were now mine.

I knew how to take care of them,
For the one who had them before me,
Had been teaching me how to care for them.
He was an old, old man, with no relatives left to care about him. He had recently died in his sleep, and left them to me.

The rabbits were quite big in size,
And I knew that they would fetch me a good price if I wished to sell them. But I vowed to do things just like the old man did, and not sell too many off at one time. I needed to retain enough good stock to keep the rabbits breeding.
I also needed to keep enough for myself.

The pair of hamsters were due to have a litter any day now. They would grow quickly, and also be sold to others, though maybe not as quickly as the rabbits.

Most people could handle the thought of eating rabbit.
But not too many could handle the thought of eating a hamster. The hamsters were enough to flavor a pot of soup though, and for those who could afford little else, it was still edible meat.

Some purchased a male and a female rabbit from me,
Just so they could start their own tiny rabbit farm in their back yard. Others wanted one to eat. I charged them extra, to kill it and skin it for them. Most found a way to do it themselves, for they did not have that extra money. Sometimes they paid me to do it in front of them, so they would be able to do it next time by themselves. I didn’t mind showing them. If I knew I would be killing one soon, I would let them know so they could come and learn for free. I wasn’t one of those charlatans who was out just to gouge their customer. I (and the old man before me,) were ones that the people trusted.

There were those of course, who still greatly struggled with the thought of killing a rabbit for food, but sooner or later, their bellies would growl louder than their conscience, and they would break down and buy one to eat. I would try to sell them the older ones, telling them that they had already lived a good long life in rabbit years, and would soon die of old age before too long anyways. They seemed to appreciate this thought.

I also stretched the skins out and scraped them clean, and then sold the pelts later to be used to help keep one warm. (I was not a good sewer, but I was good enough to piece some together for me to stay warm enough in the winter.) Some people didn’t want to be bothered with the skin, and I then told them that I would buy it back from them, for a little bit of money. It would take me quite a bit of work to clean up the fur, but if they had done a half way decent job of skinning it, then the work left was not too much for me to do. I could then sell it for a small profit, or keep it myself to use.

The pelts were not as big of a seller, as the rabbits themselves were. The meat, the protein, is what was in the highest demand.

I then woke up.
