A Snare For Souls

 

A Dream…

I was a young girl, a strong committed believer in Jesus Christ, and I was walking into a large college building, an institution.

I was starting college, and was quite excited about it. I was eager to learn all about the business, so I could then go out and make a living and support my family with the job I could get from having such a degree.

As me and my fellow students were waiting for the teacher, we chatted and talked, and started to get to know each other. Just then, one of my fellow students spoke up, and called everyone to silence. “Ssh…do you hear that?”

Everyone was quiet for a moment, and heard nothing.

“Just wait…,” she said again.

Then from the silence, came the sound of scales rubbing up against something hard.
It caused the building to give a slight shudder. There was a moment of silence, then the sound came again. We were all shocked at the sound.

The one who noticed it spoke up again. “It sounds like…”

But I finished her sentence for her. “…a huge snake!”

Everyone agreed, as they continued to listen to the pattern of sound. One said “It’s like its moving on top of us!” Another said, “no, it’s from across the hall, there!” And yet another declared that the sound was coming from beneath the room. No one could really tell from where the sound was coming from; it was all around us. But we were able to tell after listening to it for a while, that it became louder when one went towards the windows. One of us looked outside, thinking it could be seen there. But it was not there.

I knew then, along with the girl who had first discovered the sound,
That whatever it was, it was very evil, and was hunting our souls.

Many in the room panicked, having lost their composure from listening to the constant sound, and they turned and raced towards the door, to get out.

I raced with them. Some ran beyond me, out of the entrance, while others were still behind me.

I ran forward under some tables in the hall, hoping to avoid the huge snake that might be there, and then ran out the front doors of the institution. As I ran out, a group of new recruits were going in. I could tell that they were new to the whole experience, for their clothing was lighter and brighter than ours. I could see their excited faces, as they filed in along side me. I tried to reach out to them to warn them, but they would not listen at all to me, and kept going in. So I left them, and ran outside.

As soon as I cleared the door, I came face to face with satan himself. I knew it was satan, for the Holy Spirit inside me told me this. He had sandy blonde hair and a pleasant face, and was dressed in a nice suit, and looked just like what a school administrator would look like.

“Hello Christian,” he sneered, his voice low and rumbling out from him just like a demons voice would.

The panic that hit me then almost overwhelmed me, but at the last moment, just as the administrator came forward to grab me, I remembered to call out the name “Jesus!”, which caused him to back away from me.

Evil came off of him in waves, but I soon learned to brace myself against it. He moved away from me, but I kept him in my line of vision, and I let him know that I knew what he really was, and that I was keeping my eye on him.

He simply shrugged as if he didn’t care at all about what I had said, and continued administrating to the college. “You’ll be back,” he said to me with scorn. “We’re the only ones who can teach you what you need to know.”

I then transferred to another college, in the hopes that it would be different. At this college, the sound of the snake wasn’t as bad, but the evil presence was still there. I seen the same satanic administrator there at the college shortly after joining. It was then that the Holy Spirit told me that all of the colleges were infected with the beast. I wondered at this, for there were a few teachers here and there that were not too bad, and one or two that were even good. (Good meaning they tolerated Christianity fairly well.) But the Holy Spirit told me that it was infected with the evil because of the way they were formed and structured. They were basically meant to be evil by design from the very beginning.

I then went up onto the roof top, and watched as a woman kept declaring how filthy these colleges were, and to prove her point, she took a shovel to the layers of dirt that had settled upon the roof of the institution, and lifted up all the dirt on the college, and began exposing it all to anyone who cared to look. All the history of layers upon layers of smelly yucky ‘dirt’ was excavated for all to see, showing its evil formation from its onset.

I then went back into the college, to see if there were other Christians within it. I found a group of believers that were chanting “C! H! U! R! C! H!” over and over again, like a cheer at a sports game. They were trying to support each other in their faith in Christ, by supporting the gathering of houses of worship on the weekends. This did help them to remember Christ during the week, but some had also given them heavy burdens to carry as a result of such fellowship. I looked over to my right, and seen a small nook, filled with religious leaders. I realized that these were the religious leaders of the college institutions that held their denominational name. All the colleges that had started out as being a learning institution for Christ, and had then later let it slip from their grasp, were there. I saw the pope first, with his crooked cross at the end of his staff, and his false god dagon fish hat sitting upon his head. He wore his usual glimmering satin vestments, all yellow gold and white, and he was sitting there talking to all the other head religious administrators. As I listened, I realized that all these leaders took their cue from the pope, and basically copied his foundations for their own religious institutions, and then made a few changes to make it their own.

I stood there, feeling the pressure to join one of their denominations, but pushed it off. I said out loud in a clear voice, (I know the pope heard me, for I was right next to him,) “I will never go back to those lies! They lied about women being worth less than a man! But God has always loved both woman and man equally! Simple believers are the saints and priests! And besides, there is only one mediator between God and man, and it is not them! They lied about other things through the centuries as well!” (I was thinking of the purchasing of indulgences and the Spanish inquisition when I said this, but I knew that the pope knew full well what I was referring to, so I didn’t need to specifically mention them.) “Those are all man’s beliefs to help him feel powerful, not Gods! Besides, I am free indeed! I no longer need to go to those churches to try and uphold my faith in Jesus! The Holy Spirit teaches me all I need to know, and He has promised to never leave me nor forsake me!”

Just then, the head administrator, satan, walked near me, and our eyes met for just a moment. Then his face was lost into the crowd again.

As I got nearer my graduation date, I found that just walking from class to class itself, was becoming harder and harder. It was as if a lead weight had been strapped onto my back, which was making it hard for me to physically move forward. Towards the end, I felt like getting on my hands and knees and just crawling to class. The Holy Spirit told me that the burden that weighed so heavily on top of me, was the pressure of the college’s secularization methods sitting upon my Christian soul.

Then finally I had earned my degree. But as I sat there contemplating my future with my friends, the satanic administrator came back and sat next to me, and tried to entice me back into his world. Again, the evil flowed from him in waves, and as I shored up my defenses against him, the thought to somehow steal souls back from him came into my mind. I found that the idea intrigued me and invigorated me. So to my friends astonishment, I listened to the administrators words, (this time flowing over me like honey, smooth and practiced,) and I acted like I was trying to follow along with his games. He did fancy ‘miracles’ with his deck of cards, shuffling them with a whir of wind, and then having them fly into his other outstretched hand. He played games of chance with me as well, predicting their outcome, and I remarked to my friends that I wondered how he could do such ‘miracles’. (They looked at me in astonishment, but I gave them a private smile that told them that I knew what I was doing, so they let me be.) Then satan reached out and tried to teach me how to do the same tricks, but I did not really try to do them, but fumbled the cards in my hands instead. He then promised me that if I went on and continued in my studies at the collage, I would learn how to do such things and much more. I smiled and said that I would sign up for more years, for I indeed wanted to learn more.

The devil smiled back at me, and left the booth, content to think that he had at last caught me in his snares.

Little did the foolish, self-absorbed administrator guess, that far from becoming ensnared with the thought of knowing the world’s possible pleasures and secrets, my heart was still set for Jesus and the Kingdom of God. I would work under cover, infiltrate the ranks of the professors, record their ways and methods, and then write a booklet on how to steer clear of all their secularization and assimilation techniques, to help keep one’s Christian soul pure for Christ.

I ended up doing just this, and helped preserve many souls for Christ.

By the time the evil administrator realized what was really happening, I had long gone from the collage.

I then woke up.

Beware The Principality of Witchcraft

For the last few mornings, January 5th and the 6th, I have woken to a song going through my head, over and over again.

This is not the first time this has happened to me; indeed, it is one of the ways the Lord warns me about something, or wishes to impress something upon me.

The song is ‘Devil Woman’ by Cliff Richard. (1975)

“I’ve had nothing but bad luck
Since the day I saw the cat at my door
So I came into you sweet lady
Answering your mystical call

Crystal ball on the table
Showing the future, the past
Same cat with them evil eyes
And I knew it was a spell she cast

She’s just a devil woman
With evil on her mind
Beware the devil woman
She’s gonna get you…
She’s just a devil woman
With evil on her mind
Beware the devil woman
She’s gonna get you from behind…

Give me the ring on your finger
Let me see the lines on your hand
I can see me a tall dark stranger
Giving you what you hadn’t planned

I drank the potion she offered me
I found myself on the floor
Then I looked in those big green eyes
And I wondered what I came there for…

If you’re out on a moonlit night
Be careful of them neighborhood strays
Of a lady with long black hair
Trying to win you with her feminine ways

Crystal ball on the table
Show them the future, the past
Same cat with them evil eyes
You’d better get out of there fast…”

(https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NTp_Yy9QHBw)

It is reported that the singer of this song did not like the original lyrics, and refused to sing them, because it glorified the occult. So the writer changed some of the lines to re-make it into a warning of the occult, and this satisfied the singer enough to record it. He didn’t think it would be a hit at all, but the publisher claimed it would probably end up being a big hit in America. And it was. The singer claimed that the song had even saved a person from getting further into the occult, for this woman listening heard the warning of the song, repented of her witchcraft dealings, and became a follower of Jesus Christ. (http://www.cliffrichardsongs.com/devilwoman/)

This time the Lord impressed upon me, that this was a message to be shared with others, especially with those in America.

He began to remind me, of some of the things I had witnessed lately, and then told me that what I was seeing was not just a local thing, (as I had thought,) but was actually happening all across America.

People are becoming more enthralled with the occult, and some are even beginning to feel its poison.

For example, at a neighborhood gathering, we were told that the man who had purchased the vacant lot next to us (about nine months or so ago,) despite being in really good health, had suddenly come down with some kind of rare incurable form of fast acting cancer, and had died just a short while ago. He had been sick for the past six months. That is why he had not started to build anything yet on the land. The land has remained fallow all these years, because of the curse upon it. No one can seem to hold onto it for long; it is forever changing hands. This man probably had no idea that he had purchased cursed land. Yet it still affected him.

At another gathering, I was explaining to a new neighbor how our land was cursed, how this had affected us, and what we had done to be rid of the evil spirits. But another neighbor rudely interrupted and rolled her eyes at me, stating that she herself had several spirits living with her in her house, but that the spirits were quite friendly. She then insinuated that we must have done something to get the spirits on our land so upset with us. (I did not doubt this; being believers in Jesus Christ is enough alone to upset them.) I soon realized that those listening, were more enthralled by her story, and had no real interest in hearing the rest of my testimony. So I moved on. But it left a sad place in my heart, to see the warm reception this woman got, when she talked about befriending evil spirits.

One of my sons had been dating a girl for a short while, that claimed she was interested in becoming a Christian. The relationship puzzled me, for when he was with her he seemed quite enamored of her. Yet when he was apart from her, he had no interest in her at all. When I went to the Lord with it, He told me to break all witches spells over him, and the next day after doing this, he broke it off with her for good. We then found out later, that she and a friend of hers who was a witch, had placed a spell over my son, to cause him to like her. She never wanted to become a believer. She was already a witch instead.

There is a hotel within an hours drive from us, that is known for its ghost haunting and financial issues and other problems. (It is so cursed that our family can not even get close to the building, without getting dizzy from all the evil spirits.) But instead of blessing the land and casting out the evil spirits, the new owners bought a special ghost kit that one can use if they rent out one of the rooms. These kits supposedly help you to locate and listen to the ghosts. They act as if it is one of the best things to ever happen to the hotel. Sadly, they reported that many are now going there to try and talk to the spirits that reside there. It has become the popular thing to do.

Such evil is not to be scoffed at or played with. It is real, and it is dangerous. And the Lord has told me that America is in danger of becoming caught under its spell.

While in prayer over this, the mystical woman riding the beast of Revelation came to mind. Revelation 17:5 “And upon her forehead was a name written, Mystery, Babylon The Great, The Mother Of Harlots And Abominations Of The Earth.” Then I remembered, that witchcraft is one of the ‘Mystery’ religions. That meant that the woman riding the beast, could very well be a witch! (Probably not a surprise to you, but it sure was to me.)

Then the Lord revealed to me, that some witches, on the last day of the twelve days of Christmas, this January 5th, placed a spell over the populace of America, releasing demons that would seduce the young people into the occult and turn them away from God.

There is a ruling demon spirit – a principality of witchcraft, that is acting like that ‘devil woman’ in the song. When one first considers the occult, it can seem like a ‘sweet lady’, with its promises of learning hidden knowledge, being able to speak to the dead, converse with ghosts, and in some cases even influence others for a short while. But before long, you will be giving up more than just ‘the ring on your finger’, and you may very well find yourself ‘on the floor’, wondering what happened. Demons don’t always attack you right away; they tend to lie in wait till the timing is perfect, before striking. In the end, you will have gotten ‘what you hadn’t planned’.

Thankfully we don’t need a crystal ball to see what witchcraft and the fascination wit the occult will bring; the scriptures themselves serve as a warning of its poison, and there are many out there who can testify to those end results.

The occult is filled with SICKNESS. The occult is DEATH to anyone practicing it, playing with it, or even touching it in some way. White or black witchcraft makes no difference to God. In His eyes it is all sin. No matter how far you may have gone into it; Jesus Christ of Nazareth can set you free from it. Don’t wait; RUN from it, and into His arms immediately! Tell Him that you now give your life over to Him, and wish to follow His Word and His perfect will. Trust in Him. Read of Him, (like Psalm 91) read His Word out loud for they are your sword against the demons of that ‘evil woman’. May the Lord Jesus Christ bless you greatly as you walk with HIM!

About The Use Of Bad Language

ABOUT CUSSING AND USING BAD LANGUAGE

One of my younger boys, was wondering about the use of bad language. He knew that using obvious cussing words was bad, yet some of his friends would use cuss words in a positive way, and this confused him. For example, one of his friends had told him that something my son had worked hard to achieve, was “kick a-s.” (Which was the equivalent of saying “kick donkey”.) When his friend said this, my son still felt a twinge of sadness in his heart over the use of that other word that meant a donkey, and yet he wasn’t sure if he should ask his friend to abstain from saying that word or not. When he looked up the word on line, in reference to the bible, he was told that it was actually in God’s Word, and to his mind, this meant that it must be o.k.. But it still didn’t feel right in his spirit, so this confused him more.

He would note, that hearing such cuss words on the television, was not as painful as when someone he cared about used them. This also confused him. Why would there be a difference?

He went on line again, to see what other believers had to say on this matter. He found that there were three man points that people made on the topic. One, was that we are not to say any of these words, no matter what. The second one, was two questions. Would you say it in front of God? And what if you say these words without their evil intent like a_s for donkey? And the third belief, claimed that as long as you don’t use God’s name in vain, you’re good.

My son asked the Lord Jesus many times, which ones of these, if any, were right or not. And he received no answer.

Till one day, while in prayer to Him, my son brought it up to Him yet again. And this time, the Lord answered him.

First, the Lord asked my son why he wanted to know.

“So I can share the real truth with others,” he answered, “and even preach these truths to my children some day.”

So the Lord told him, “begin speaking through your own (caring) heart, and pretend you are preaching to your children on this matter.”

Which my son then did.

He explained again the questions, and when it came to the part for the answers, my son found that the truth just fell from his lips as if something besides him was controlling him. He listened to himself speak, astounded.

Half way through he stopped, and simply began conversing with the Lord. It excited him greatly, to hear such direct answers!

God told him, “Do not let any evil out of your mouth. Your words are very powerful. They are so powerful, that they can control the demons. When you cast out a demon with My Word, like a blaster of pure energy, you are pushing the demon away. You can even ask your guardian angel to move to protect you; this gives your guardian angel more power to work on your behalf.

Your words can also be very weak. When you say words in an evil way, you are saying weak words, as far as the Spirit and the Kingdom is concerned. When you cuss or say these cuss-like words, the demons will hear. When people use a certain word as a swear word, over and over again, that word becomes known as a cuss word, or what is known in this age as a swear word. Demons memorize these words, (some are even their names,) for these words call them to the person who is speaking them. (This is why it is less painful to hear them over the television set, than when a friend says them.) When one cusses, they are sinning and calling that demon into them. Then once inside of you, demons can easily influence you to sin more. The swearing gives the demon a doorway to hit you with more sin, so then it can eventually take you. If you say such a word in a non-evil/not with evil intent, through you are not cursing, the demons will still listen and come, but they can not enter into you. No doorway or opening was made, so they do not have a free way to attack you.

Trust My Spirit within you. If My Holy Spirit in you thinks that the word is a swear word, then My Spirit will warn you to not say it or to listen to it. If you keep saying it in a way that is o.k., your spirit still hears it and still warns you. (And you might want to cast out the demon you just called to your side.) If you keep doing it, you will get numb to the sensitivity of saying the swear word itself, with evil intent or not. And the demons, they listen to these words, so that they will come to you with the intent that you are going to sin. (Just the words said without any evil intent. So it is good to cast them out, just in case.)

Swearing demons often work with the demons of addiction.
Swearing itself, can even be its own addiction.

The reason you should not say these words, if you curse, not only is it a sin, but you are calling a demon to come to you. If you said a non swear word just like it was a curse, though you are sinning, you are not calling a demon.

If you keep using the words as non-swearing, though the demons will come, they will be bored. They will start to leave you alone cause they realize you are not sinning. You are a waste of their time.

If enough people do that with a particular word, it will no longer be considered a swear word. And the demons will not listen to those words any longer.”

My son told me, that he referenced the Bible, just to make sure that what he had heard was really true, and found that it matched in places, and in others, it did not refute it, but was silent on it. (For example, the bible does not say that demons can enter into you when you swear. Yet it doesn’t say that they do not either. And this child has seen demons enter into those who cuss.)

Personally, I can testify that when I was in my twenties, I had a problem with cussing. At first, I had thought that it made me sound ‘cool’ and ‘in with the in crowd’, but after I was married, both my husband and I decided that we would refrain from cussing. My husband was able to stop without a problem. But I could not seem to stop! So finally, I went to the Lord and asked Him to please help me break the habit. He told me that whenever I found that I had said a cuss word, I was to immediately stop, and no matter where I was or who I was with, say out loud, “I am sorry Jesus. Please forgive me!” Well, after the third time saying this out loud, I found that the habit (or addiction,) of cussing, was broken. Hallelujah!
