The underground ministry…Deliverance from Demonic possession. Part 3
As a child growing up in Sunday school we use to sing this song, “The devil is a sly ole fox if I could catch him I’d put him in a box. I’d lock the door and throw away the keys for all those tricks he played on me” Boy how many times growing up I wish I could of done just that. In our Christian walk we are taught certain words to help us use against the attacks of Satan and his buddies. Here are a few, of course we are taught that the name of “Jesus” is the most powerful name we could ever us. Then there are these other words we use as we pray or sometimes use it directly at the enemy they are “Rebuke” to turn back or keep down (Webster) and “Bind” to bind, fasten with chains, to throw into chains.
We as Christians can rebuke and bind demons in a person. What we are doing is taking control of them. We also can rebuke Satan but we can not bind him. If we could bind Satan (to throw into chains) then we would not have any troubles in our lives or the world. I say this so we will have clarity in our prayers. In deliverance we need to know the words we are using against the enemy. I have heard ministers say in their prayers “we bind you Satan” I wanted to jump up and say “excuse me but we can not bind him, but what a wonderful world it would be if we could”
Now I would like to introduce to you Ruth, Ruth is Tina’s mom. Ruth has been very active in Tina’s deliverance, although it would break her heart seeing her daughter fighting for her life. The demons would be very up set with Ruth because she along with her husband was the ones that were Tina’s spiritual head. Ruth would take time off of work to bring her to me, Ruth was the one that would read the Bible to Tina, and Ruth was the one that would encourage her to seek God. One morning I received a phone call from Ruth telling me Tina was making her very nervous. She was telling me while Tina was getting dressed for work she asked Ruth to read the Bible requesting “putting on the armor of God.” Tina sat on the couch putting her shoes on while Ruth started reading the passage. Tina looks up at her mom with a glair that could kill and said in a very angry hateful voice “SHUT UP I DON’T WANT TO HEAR IT.” Ruth looked up from the bible and right away knew what she needed to do; she went into prayer, silent prayer. The demon said to Ruth with a smirk tone “I know what you’re doing I can read your thoughts.” Then Tina got up and went into the bathroom and started talking to her self in the mirror. During this whole time of deliverance I advised Ruth not to provoke the demons at home because this was more then she could handle and was very new to her. The demons would try to hurt Ruth every time she would get close to Tina during a meeting. They had reached out to kick her many times and the words that were coming out of her daughter’s mouth would shock a sailor. As my husband would say, “You kiss your momma with that mouth?” So Ruth would pray on the side lines and a very good intercessor prayer partner. Ruth said to me the years with her daughter were very interesting, she could not understand Tina’s mood swings and now that the demons were found out her moods became very violent. Ruth now recognizes the works of the demons in Tina’s life and sees how they controlled her and why her moods were as they were.
It was around 12:00am I received a phone call from Tina, if I would not have had caller Id I would have not known it was Tina and might have hung up on her thinking it was a prank call. The voice on the other end sounded like someone was talking with a swollen tongue. I could barely understand what she was saying plus she was talking softly with hand cuffing the phone as to not let anyone hear her. She was asking me if I could hear her and I said “barely” and she continued to say she didn’t want “it” to hear her. She talked a little more still not able to understand her, I heard the words bed, tongue, big and then the phone hung up. I tried calling her back but no answer. I quickly called her mom who just happened to be up getting a drink of water. I asked her to go check on Tina and explained why. She opened the door and found Tina on the bed scared to death. She told her mom this big shadow came out of her closet came to the side of her bed and threw her out of the bed. Then reached down and was holding her tongue so she could not say the name of “Jesus” and continued to tell her what he thought of her for seeking deliverance. She finally was able to reach for her phone and called me. The demon turned around and walked back into the closet. She described him as BIG, tall, arms that were long almost touching the floor and mean. I was able to pray a protection over Tina for the night.
I never liked Tina’s room. She kept it dark and every time I would go into her room I was not able to breath and the hair on the back of my neck would stick straight up. There was one time though we went to Tina’s house to visit the family so we slept in Tina’s room and she slept on the couch. First thing I did was say a prayer over the room and my husband and I then went to bed. I had been asleep maybe two hours and I was awakened by the bed shaking like someone came by and pushed the bed. I at first look to see if my husband had moved, turned over but nope he was very still. Then I looked around the room and knew what was going on so I started rebuking and went back to sleep. It was now around early morning and once again the bed was shaking. I once again started rebuking and laid in bed praying against what ever it was. In my spirit I felt it was trying to intimidate me but I knew my God would protect me. I was able to fall asleep for a little while longer then every one started getting up. Tina got up and walked passed the door and I called her in the room and asked her how she slept and she said “not well at all” I asked why? She said that a shadow was standing over her on the couch and she asked how I slept. I went on to tell her what had happened to me and she asked why? It was all just an intimidation on their part knowing my husband and I were there for a prayer meeting.
We just got done eating breakfast and was sitting around talking. It was me, my husband, Ruth and Tina. Our conversation was about Jesus dyeing on the cross and taking communion. Tina asked if we could take communion and I said “sure why not” so as Ruth and my husband was done preparing it and passing it out, Tina jumped up on the back of the couch and started yelling and screaming saying “GET THAT BLANKITY BLANK STUFF AWAY FROM ME” then the battle begins. This was a time before the spirit of Abaddon was gone. We were in prayer for about 5 hours and during this time we sat back in worship and suddenly Tina started levitating. Now that was the first for me. My husband laid across her legs to bring her back down her brother was pressing on her shoulders. We got her back down on the ground and continued praying. Was anything delivered? I would say yes, the weaker demons would be forced out by the strong holds. There is a ranking of demons. First you have the strong holds that would be considered the Generals in the military, and then you break off in ranks on down to the soldiers. At this time I would say that soldiers were being kicked out to protect the strong holds. I always asked for evidence as they leave so I would know they did not just go back down. I was specific and asked for them to come out as vomit. I know that sounds bad but I needed to be satisfied they were gone. A spirit leaves by, vomit, coughing, burping, farting either way it’s gross. I found I had to change the way they left her body because she had the spirit of bulimia and that just brought that spirit to life again. Ruth would find Tina in the bathroom with her whole fist in her throat throwing up.
I praise God he is my deliverer, my strong tower. If you find your self in deliverance or just needing to pray and don’t know what to say, pray the prayer Jesus taught his disciples. This prayer ticks em off big time.
Our Father, who art in heaven,
hallowed be thy name.
Thy Kingdom come,
thy will be done,
on earth as it is in heaven
Give us this day our daily bread.
And forgive us our trespasses,
as we forgive those who trespass against us.
And lead us not into temptation,
but deliver us from evil.
For thine is the kingdom, the power and the glory. For ever and ever. Amen
