March 19, 2014
(At this point I was actively studying the Bible and what it specifically had to say regarding deliverance ministry. More specifically, I was striving to better understand what demon spirits exactly were and how they were able to obtain "legal rights" to do the things which they did.
I also began to take repentance more seriously, in striving to turn away from a nigh collected lifetime's worth of sin)
I just awoke up from a dream where a demon spirit tried to mess with me. In my dream, I was rummaging around in a walk-in closet for some reason. Over off in a dark corner of this room, I felt the chilled presence of a demon spirit.
Calmly and sternly, I bound the spirit in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ -- and ordered it to immediately and directly enter the pit of Hell -- never to return.
The evil presence left, and my dream slowly faded out until I woke up!

To anyone who is reading this: As a Christian, you have the legally given authority to cast out demons!
I implore you to pray with the Lord on this, as long as it may take you.
If you're having nightmares where evil spirits are tormenting you, authoritatively order and cast them out! They have no other choice but to obey -- provided you are not involved in current/unrepentant sins; or are in possession of any cursed objects (ref. Deuteronomy 7:25-26).
April 3, 2014 (before 6 a.m.)
Early this morning, I had this vivid dream where I was directly confronting demon spirits by challenging them on their legal grounds.
As I recall, I was in my bedroom (of the current house I live in) and attempting to cast out evil spirits in the name of Jesus. These spirits took the forms of small, ugly-looking stuffed animals. Initially, they resisted due to their (as I perceived) possessing "legal grounds" to remain where they were.
Now...I don't specifically remember what legal grounds they stated, though they were grounds granted by God.
At one point, I even grabbed a smaller one by the throat and went into our living room -- demanding it to repeat its legal grounds in front of my mother (a familiar spirit??); whom in turn, responded with alarm and awe.
These spirits, despite having legal grounds to remain, appeared compelled to respond to other commands in the name of Jesus (such as being "bound" in one spot). For instance, they also appeared to receive punishment by my commanding them (in Jesus' name) to be "tormented with hell fire"; and in also enduring a continual assault by God's holy angels (whom were invisible).
After awaking, I went back to sleep again and had other confrontations with evil spirits. One clearly identified its name as "trouble" and had some type of corresponding function. Another, I believe, was a sexual demon (taking the form of an effeminate man); who briefly molested me by grabbing my genitalia.
- - - - - - -
At this point in my life, I was having these types of dreams almost every night (and still routinely do). I am only now beginning to become emboldened to challenge them on their legal grounds.
...they are the dirtiest fighters in Creation; often choosing to target people while in their sleep, when they're most vulnerable.
May 2014 (between 11 p.m. and 3 a.m.)
Here, I can testify that the Lord delivered me from the stronghold of sexual lust and temptation (bluntly speaking: pornography and masturbation).
Applying what I had learned from my ongoing research into deliverance, upon falling asleep on this night I prayed by affirming these words in faith, over and again, in my mind:
"I plead the blood of Jesus over my body...Enter the pit, in Jesus' name!"
Just a few hours later -- I was abruptly awaken from my sleep due to the brief, violent shaking of my lower abdomen...as if something was being driven out!
Glory to the Lord Jesus Christ, this was a demon stronghold of sexual manipulation being driven out of me!
And from that time afterward, I had experienced very little temptation to view sexually suggestive photos/videos, or just simply porn. These temptations, furthermore, were much weaker in nature compared to what I was previously used to experiencing.
They were easily resisted. To make a comparison, it was as if the influencing "nicotine" of sexual addiction was drawn out of me (that "nicotine" being the inner-influence of demonic spirits).
- - - - - - -
I share this testimony in hopes of empowering believers (as well as those who are curious) that the Lord Jesus Christ can deliver anyone out of their bondages and afflictions -- no matter what form they are of.
If you draw close to Him in obedience (as I did, in repenting from sexual sin), He will draw close to you in mercy.

In this dream, I was laying on a green foldout couch inside what appeared to be a small, dark cramped store; located in what appeared to be a busy downtown area. In front of me was a big screen TV that had a news weather report playing. Located directly behind this couch was the glass front door leading outside (which appeared to have a business hours sign attached to it).
Suddenly, I noticed a man walking into the store, smiling and saying "Hi!".
I responded in kind.
Then immediately, in the Spirit...I noticed something was wrong.
This wasn't a man --- as he now resembled more of a leprechaun: abnormally wide mouth, red feathered hair with a green top hat, and eyes which were entirely crystalline blue, yet with no whites.
It's a demon -- and the demon now knows I know!
Momentarily bewildered, he hisses out "Oh, sh--!" and immediately exits the store, fleeing outside.
I follow in pursuit, determined to command it to enter the abyss.
I'm now outside in the bustling downtown area, as I notice the demon entering the passenger side of a vehicle (someone else is driving). I attempt the speak the command "Enter the pit, in Jesus name!" but I'm unable to open my mouth! My lips are somehow sealed as I'm only able to muffle the words; and even think them out-loud in my mind...but to no avail.
The vehicle then takes off down the crowded road as I follow behind on foot, still determined to get the those commanding words out.
Disappointingly, the dream ends before I could recover.

...I do wonder if anyone else has ever been similarly "silenced" in a dream (as if via a spell)?
This demon KNEW the jig was up (it immediately perceived when I became aware of its true identity) and didn't attempt to stick around.
July 26, 2014
I just had a dream where I confronted a...seemingly...more powerful demon and was unable to cast him out.
This demon took the form of my old boss from a recent job (my boss was Mormon. Not sure if there's a correlation). Upon being asked in the name of Jesus (1 John 4:1) if he was a demon, he merely chuckled and answered "...yeah".
Aside from this, there were two other points in my dreams last night where the Lord revealed areas in my life that are still apparently holding me in bondage. At the first point, I was performing at a concert as a drummer for a garage band that I had a very brief involvement with when I was 15. ...and as with most teenage garage bands, it didn't last. Afterward though, I developed a greater interest in drum beats; of which are most often associated with rock and metal music.
During the second fragment of my dream, I was somehow playing a fighting video game similar to a franchise known as Mortal Kombat. During the character selection screen. I chose this -- very wicked, evil-looking female character which appeared to be physically morphed with an ominous tree rooted into the ground.
(...these images are tough to accurately describe! I can imagine how John felt).
The character's display name was "Anata no Muchi" (あなたのむち). I know some Japanese, so I immediately recognized that this was an English romanization of a noun describing me. Basically, "anata no" can translate into the possessive "your [blank]", but I wasn't familiar with the term "muchi".
So I went to Google Translate for a definition. The result was a bit chilling and accurate (and I cannot recall ever coming across this word in the entirety of my college Japanese studies).
Translated, it means: "Your ignorance".

Video games and rock music are actually two longstanding strong holds in my life.
I actively need to depend on the Lord to discern what I should and should not involve myself with, in these areas.
Oct. 6, 2014 (around 5 a.m.)
At around 5 a.m. this morning, I had some trouble falling back asleep due to an "interference" in the air. From my ongoing experiences up to this point, this interference, almost always, indicates demonic activity.
This morning, I had enough of putting up with it and began calling on God's Holy Angels to deploy and assist me while I willed myself to sleep and encountered this interference.
Here is what a remember most vividly:
I manifested in lucid-dream state in an exact apparent copy of my room, where a humanoid figure resembling a purple alien/lizard in human clothes appeared in front of me (it was a bit over 6 ft tall).
It was wearing something like a yellow polo style shirt with dark-tan slacks.
I began continually commanding the Lord's Angels to smite it with their flaming swords -- to which the thing immediately reacted by wincing in pain from various places on its body. I couldn't see the angels, but I could definitely see the demon's reactions from their attacks. After the 1st round of attacks, I commanded it to enter the pit...to which it did not obey.
I only simply thought to myself that it is not yet weakened enough to comply.
I commanded God's Angels to strike again.
Finally, I grabbed the thing by its throat and said to it (paraphrased), "You're going to listen to me. You're going to enter the pit -- and never return, right?".
The demon hissed out, "...riiiiight.".
I then forcibly flung it, with both arms, through my floor and into the pit! (which I intuitively knew was below me).

Thank you, Lord Jesus in Heaven!
Nov. 11, 2014 (before 7 a.m.)
I just awoke from a lucid dream taking place in my old house, again. Once more, it was in the living room area, where I was exposed to what appeared to be a considerable stronghold of demon activity.
Once I became lucid and aware that a warfare encounter was about to take place (I've come to know this by an "interference" in the air when I'm almost asleep, in the physical), I found myself in the living room and amongst, I estimate, 5-7 of them in number. The ones that interacted with me the most took human, female form.
These forms were of certain past teenaged girls that I had went to Jr. High/High School with.
Their manner was a higher level of deception, than what I have been previous accustomed. That is, they were friendly...even casual with me. They engaged in conversation with me, as though there was no warfare going on, at all. At many times, this even disarmed my desire to battle them (it was hard to discern them as demons, at first).
And gathered amongst those which took these human female forms, were other spirits which I did discern that I was fighting against. These ones were in the likenesses of small, floating black masses that I could both visibly see and also "sense" around me. Also, in the living room, there was a tiny hallway off to the right that led to a small storage closet, filled with electronic equipment. This electronic equipment reminded me of what you might see at an Internet Service Provider. This room did not exist in the physical, at all (a small window exists there, instead).
From here, a thought was placed into my mind to don the "armor of righteousness". So I said out-loud to myself "I put on the armor of righteousness, the helmet of salvation, sword of the Spirit...", etc. In response, I could even "feel" the grip of the hilt of a sword, yet I did not see a visible form yet manifest in my hand.
Here's just how deceived I was in all this (and just how crafty the enemy can be):
The demons in human form were helping me locate the other ones to cast out!
Literally, one of the "females" would suddenly point at and yell "over there!", and then I'd proceed to attack it.
At this point, I began to discern these young female forms were not who they claimed to be. I was fighting hard, much more intensely and quickly than I could in a physical body -- with a series of very fast slashes and thrusts. Every time I tried to "strike" them with what I believed to be the invisible "sword of the Spirit", they would either not visibly react at all to my strikes, or just subtlety flinch.
And as I was striking at them, they would still remain casually talking to me like I wasn't doing a thing to them...
(during this whole time, there was a weird, catchy song in the background. It reminded me of a weird pop song).
Just then, It came into my mind here (by the Holy Spirit?) that the real Sword of the Spirit is "powered" by one's intimate knowledge of Scripture. To wit, as I recalled and affirmed various Scriptures (which I, admittedly, didn't know many by heart), it seemed like I was doing more damage to them, in the sense that they were no longer feigning -- but were feeling legitimate pain (yet still trying to mask it).
At one point again, I saw a reflection of myself in a mirror on the wall in the living room. I did not look much like a warrior. My body armor was a red-colored cloth which reminded me of a blanket (the Blood of Christ!), while I didn't notice any other pieces on me.
Before this dream encounter ended, I recall staring VERY closely at one of the human female forms.
As I peered in closer, I could see more subtle details indicating that this was merely a disguise. For one, the hair now extended down past "her" waist and tailbone, which instantly reminded me of a troll. I also I vowed that I would eventually defeat it -- to which "she" widely grinned at me, in response. This grin, however, supernaturally extended beyond the physiological limitations in which we can normally smile.
What I mean is: even the teeth curled up into a grin. This, more or less, seems to be a subtle method I've noticed demons employ to get a little bit more of a scare out of you.

Another peculiar detail is that the carpet in my "old house" was brown. But in my lucid dream, it was gray...just like my bedroom carpet in my current house??
