All questions directed are spoken in the name and authority of Jesus Christ. Every response from the demons, furthermore, is tested (I John 4:1) as to whether it will stand as truth before Jehovah God.
Justin Martyr "Second Apology" (153 A.D.) Chapter 8: All have been hated in whom the Word has dwelt
And those of the Stoic school— since, so far as their moral teaching went, they were admirable, as were also the poets in some particulars, on account of the seed of reason [the Logos] implanted in every race of men— were, we know, hated and put to death—Heraclitus for instance, and, among those of our own time, Musonius and others. For, as we intimated, the devils have always effected, that all those who anyhow live a reasonable and earnest life, and shun vice, be hated. And it is nothing wonderful; if the devils are proved to cause those to be much worse hated who live not according to a part only of the word diffused [among men] but by the knowledge and contemplation of the whole Word, which is Christ. And they, having been shut up in eternal fire, shall suffer their just punishment and penalty. For if they are even now overthrown by men through the name of Jesus Christ, this is an intimation of the punishment in eternal fire which is to be inflicted on themselves and those who serve them. For thus did both all the prophets foretell, and our own teacher Jesus teach.
Irenaeus, "Against Heresies" (190 A.D.) Book II, Chapter 32: Further exposure of the wicked and blasphemous doctrines of the heretics
If, however, they maintain that the Lord, too, performed such works simply in appearance, we shall refer them to the prophetical writings, and prove from these both that all things were thus predicted regarding Him, and did take place undoubtedly, and that He is the only Son of God. Wherefore, also, those who are in truth His disciples, receiving grace from Him, do in His name perform [miracles], so as to promote the welfare of other men, according to the gift which each one has received from Him. For some do certainly and truly drive out devils, so that those who have thus been cleansed from evil spirits frequently both believe [in Christ], and join themselves to the Church. Others have foreknowledge of things to come: they see visions, and utter prophetic expressions. Others still, heal the sick by laying their hands upon them, and they are made whole. Yea, moreover, as I have said, the dead even have been raised up, and remained among us for many years. And what shall I more say? It is not possible to name the number of the gifts which the Church, [scattered] throughout the whole world, has received from God, in the name of Jesus Christ, who was crucified under Pontius Pilate, and which she exerts day by day for the benefit of the Gentiles, neither practising deception upon any, nor taking any reward Acts 8:9, 18 from them [on account of such miraculous interpositions]. For as she has received freely Matthew 10:8 from God, freely also does she minister [to others].
Origen, "Contra Celsus" (248 A.D.) Book I, Chapter 46
For the law and the prophets are full of marvels similar to those recorded of Jesus at His baptism, viz., regarding the dove and the voice from heaven. And I think the wonders wrought by Jesus are a proof of the Holy Spirit's having then appeared in the form of a dove, although Celsus, from a desire to cast discredit upon them, alleges that He performed only what He had learned among the Egyptians. And I shall refer not only to His miracles, but, as is proper, to those also of the apostles of Jesus. For they could not without the help of miracles and wonders have prevailed on those who heard their new doctrines and new teachings to abandon their national usages, and to accept their instructions at the danger to themselves even of death. And there are still preserved among Christians traces of that Holy Spirit which appeared in the form of a dove. They expel evil spirits, and perform many cures, and foresee certain events, according to the will of the Logos. And although Celsus, or the Jew whom he has introduced, may treat with mockery what I am going to say, I shall say it nevertheless—that many have been converted to Christianity as if against their will, some sort of spirit having suddenly transformed their minds from a hatred of the doctrine to a readiness to die in its defence, and having appeared to them either in a waking vision or a dream of the night. Many such instances have we known, which, if we were to commit to writing, although they were seen and witnessed by ourselves, we should afford great occasion for ridicule to unbelievers, who would imagine that we, like those whom they suppose to have invented such things, had ourselves also done the same. But God is witness of our conscientious desire, not by false statements, but by testimonies of different kinds, to establish the divinity of the doctrine of Jesus. And as it is a Jew who is perplexed about the account of the Holy Spirit having descended upon Jesus in the form of a dove, we would say to him, Sir, who is it that says in Isaiah, 'And now the Lord has sent me and His Spirit.' In which sentence, as the meaning is doubtful— viz., whether the Father and the Holy Spirit sent Jesus, or the Father sent both Christ and the Holy Spirit— the latter is correct. For, because the Saviour was sent, afterwards the Holy Spirit was sent also, that the prediction of the prophet might be fulfilled; and as it was necessary that the fulfilment of the prophecy should be known to posterity, the disciples of Jesus for that reason committed the result to writing.
Lactantius, "The Divine Institutes" (303-311 A.D.) Book V, Chapter 22: Of the Rage of the Demons Against Christians, and the Error of Unbelievers
They do not therefore rage against us on this account, because their gods are not worshipped by us, but because the truth is on our side, which (as it has been said most truly) produces hatred. What, then, shall we think, but that they are ignorant of what they suffer? For they act with a blind and unreasonable fury, which we see, but of which they are ignorant. For it is not the men themselves who persecute, for they have no cause of anger against the innocent; but those contaminated and abandoned spirits by whom the truth is both known and hated insinuate themselves into their minds, and goad them in their ignorance to fury. For these, as long as there is peace among the people of God, flee from the righteous, and fear them; and when they seize upon the bodies of men, and harass their souls, they are adjured by them, and at the name of the true God are put to flight. For when they hear this name they tremble, cry out, and assert that they are branded and beaten; and being asked who they are, whence they have come, and how they have insinuated themselves into a man, confess it. Thus, being tortured and excruciated by the power of the divine name, they come out of the man. On account of these blows and threats, they always hate holy and just men; and because they are unable of themselves to injure them, they pursue with public hatred those whom they perceive to be grievous to them, and they exercise cruelty, with all the violence which they can employ, that they may either weaken their faith by pain, or, if they are unable to effect that, may take them away altogether from the earth, that there may be none to restrain their wickedness. It does not escape my notice what reply can be made on the other side. Why, then, does that God of surpassing power, that mighty One, whom you confess to preside over all things, and to be Lord of all, permit these things to be done, and neither avenge nor defend His worshippers? Why, in short, are they who do not worship Him rich, and powerful, and happy? And why do they enjoy honours and kingly state, and have these very persons subject to their power and sway?...
[Boshold, Frank S. (1970). Blumhardt's Battle A Conflict with Satan (p.4-5) Thomas E. Lowe LTD. Publishers, New York]
...When a person goes through an affection, a fad, or a hobby, he usually tires of it after a while and goes on to something else. He is not held in the fad's power. But with those who have entered into supernatural experiences, it is quite different. The drug faddists and all those who dabble in spiritism or demon religion come permanently under the influence and power of something they cannot throw off at will or even control. Depending upon the degree of their involvement with the spirit world, their behavior is no longer under their own control but dictated by unseen forces which have gained a claim upon that person. Because of the nature of the involvement in the false supernatural, those who are ensnared do not know how to become free again.
For example, a demonic book invites the reader to conjure up a demon of lust in order to be possessed by it and to experience more intense passions. The reader does so, following the magic formula, and thereupon is seized by uncontrollable lust. Whereas before he had his passion reasonably under control, this is no longer true and he is a victim of one or several evil spirits working in him. Likewise when someone handles a pendulum, a ouijaboard, or some other spiritistic instrument, he comes under the influence of evil spirits which gain access to his body and thereby control the use of the instrument. The user becomes the victim of one or a number of demons which take possession of any number of the faculties of the body and use them for their own purposes.
After possession by an evil spirit, the person begins to change in his behavior, his feelings, his standards, his desires. Beside that, the victim invariably experiences attacks of fear, depression, melancholy, temptations of suicide and is moved at times by inexplicable anger, resentment, hatred, or urges to destroy. Also a particular kind of virulence and animosity against the Bible and the people of God becomes manifest.
Neither therapy nor drugs nor changes in environment help those possessed by evil spirits, and since they turn away from God and His Gospel in Jesus Christ, the only way of deliverance, there is not hope of freedom from the dark power of satan, unless the victim seeks help from God.
It is already obvious that the flood of supernaturalism in America is beyond the control of the government and its agencies, institutions and organized churches. But what we see around us today is only the beginning of what is to come. It is always the design of satan and his demons to gain entrance into men and they will do so in whatever degree they can. But once having gained a foothold, a landslide begins. The petty thief turns into a hold-up man and finally a killer. The marijuana or LSD user eventually turns to heroin or methedrine. The dabbler in spiritism becomes more and more possessed by evil spirits...

Ch. 7: Demon Oppression
I must tell you of our experience last week. The Bible women, with Kim Okie of myself, were called to the home of Mr. Pak, the principal of our Korea Theological Seminary. A relative had come to visit them and on Monday morning she became possessed of an evil spirit. The minute she saw us she started to run away. People had to hold her down to calm her. We sang "Onward Christian Soldiers," then four of us prayed, claiming her deliverance on the basis of Christ's victory over Satan on Calvary. The Bible women laid hands on her and commanded the evil spirit to leave, saying he had no right to stay in the body of one who believed in Jesus. She had believed over a year ago, but her husband had taken a concubine and she was brokenhearted. In her deep sorrow, self-pity, and worry she reopened old areas to the devil.
Once she cried out loudly: "I have been here thirteen years -- do you think i am going to leave now?" Later her voice shrilled: "I hate Jesus; I will not leave." Her facial expressions were terrible, hard, and angry. She tried many times to bang her head on the floor, and once she darted to a corner of the room and grabbed my parasol and struck her head with it.
Hours passed and there seemed to be no change in her. Yung Do felt she could not remain much longer, as she had promised to go out visiting. As we were debating about what to do, I quietly moved closer to the woman and began talking to her about Jesus Christ, telling her how He alone could comfort her and satisfy her heart. She listened and I saw tears in her eyes. I told her Jesus loved her -- that I loved her, too, and longed to help her. I continued talking along this line and she sat up.
She listened and began to talk. She said she was so ashamed of what had happened. I then gave her many verses from the Word which she eagerly read -- Psalms 66:12, Hebrews 2:14, Colossians 2:15, Hebrews 13:5, 6 and many others I do not now recall. I told her why I thought the evil spirit had gotten in, that her worry and self-pity were sins. She thoroughly agreed and admitted her hatred of her husband and his concubine, which I told her was sin too. She talked freely, admitting her faith was weak.
She wants to come to our Bible institute this fall and is planning to do so. She offered a very earnest prayer, asking God to keep her from further attacks of the enemy and thanking him for deliverance. We had prayer for her several times before we left.
Just when the evil spirit left, we do not know, but you can imagine the great joy that filled our hearts to see her set free from that awful, wicked, noisy spirit. The Paks were so happy.
Yung Do and I called the other day to see how she was, and though she wasn't there, Mr. Pak said she was still all right and had gone to the seashore for the afternoon. This was truly the Lord's doing, for neither Yung Do nor I did anything. All I did was to talk of Jesus.

Chapter 15 Search for Deliverance
...Some weeks went by. I was still seeking. The battle was getting fiercer. Lucifer was stepping up his efforts to keep me chained and bound. As the battle grew fiercer, so other things happened.
I wandered into many different churches and sometimes heard the blood of Jesus mentioned. At that, a dark force within took control of me, and strange things occurred. I acted in inexplicable, satanic ways. I snatched Bibles and tore them. I threw hymnbooks around the church. I knocked communion trays out of the hands of those who were taking around the bread and wine.
I would fall to the floor screaming, hissing, and slithering like a snake. Then, quite suddenly I would come to myself and remember nothing. Very often I would run out of the church sobbing and crying...
...Outside the churches I could feel an unseen hand pushing me into doing the very things I wanted to give up. Before I gave my heart to Jesus I took part in witchcraft, drugs, and prostitution without hesitation, but now that I was seeking to live a Christian life, the things I wanted to part with I sought out as if against my will. I was made to do them, controlled by some evil power deep within.
When in my wanderings in and out of the churches I heard the real gospel preached, the evil forces within became activated. I went out undelivered.
I visited many churches. Many evil manifestations continued. I saw the bewildered and concerned looks on the faces of people when I came around, and I too was confused, more confused than the ministers themselves. I wondered why they didn't do something for me...

Chapter 16 The Finger of God [p.124-125,126]
...In the early hours of the morning I awoke filled with the most awful fear; I was surrounded by evil powers. I heard the awful voices, but this time they gave their names. I was torn inside as if someone had taken a knife and was tearing me to pieces.
Tossing back and forth as the demons within tormented and tore me, I heard this:
"Have nothing to do with Neil. I am Doubt and Unbelief."
"I am not coming out."
Then many more voices cried out all at once: "Not me--not me--not me!"
It sounded like a mighty chorus growing louder and louder. I was perspiring, the bed clothes were soaking wet, my body was torn by the demons.
I heard another voice say: "I am Lust. I am an unclean spirit. I am not leaving. I have been here for years."
"I am Lies," said another. "I'm not leaving either."
"And I am Witchcraft," said another very powerful demon.
"I am Pride," said another. "I am not leaving."
"No, nor I."
The demons spoke one after another. I thought I was going mad. I was not mad; yet I knew that if these demons were not cast out, I would go completely mad.
I wondered where Jesus was, where the light was. My eyes couldn't see the light at all. The darkness of hell seemed to descend upon me...
...It was not until later, when I was completely free from all demons, that Mr. Neil did tell me exactly what happened that night. And this is what he told me.
Six demons revealed themselves under close interrogation by Mr. Neil. They each expressed themselves through my lips, according to their individual nature.
The commander-in-chief was Doubt and Unbelief (one demon). It was most obstinate and violent. Apparently I had to be held by two Christian men while Mr. Neil cast out the demon.
He pointed his finger (see Luke 11:20) and quoted, "If I with the finger of God cast out devils, no doubt the kingdom of God is come upon Doreen."
He commanded in the name of Jesus, both in English and in the tongue the Lord had given him for the purpose of exorcism, that the demon should leave and depart to Gehenna (hell).
The tremendous struggle that followed could best be described by Ephesians 6:12. Wrestling is the perfect description. The demon didn't want to leave my body and certainly didn't want to go to Gehenna before the time, but in the end it left with a loud scream.
The exorcism lasted three or four hours. In this time the demon Deceit and the unclean spirits of Lust, Lies, Pride, and Witchcraft were dispatched to Gehenna.
The demon of Witchcraft, said Mr. Neil, was very noisy. Its nature was weird and gave expression by certain enchanted wailings...
[Hagin, Kenneth E. (1978). The Origin and Operation of Demons (p.30-31) Faith Library Publications]
...I'm glad that the devil is a defeated foe. Jesus told me later that one doesn't have to have discerning of spirits to deal with the devil. You may have it but you don't have to have it. That answers some questions for us because if we didn't know that, we probably would wait to receive this special gift from God. I believe some of us have thought that. He said that you don't have to have discerning of spirits and you don't have to be a minister or an apostle or anything like that to exercise authority over the devil. Every believer has the right and the authority to use the name of Jesus. The whole body of Christ has it.
Jesus spent some time talking to me about what Paul said to the church at Ephesus when he talked about how Christ was the Head and we are the body. He said that every member of the body of Christ has the right to use the name of Jesus and exercise authority over the devil and demons and evil spirits. A person may feel that he is the least member and may say he is the little toenail on the little toe of the left or right foot, yet that little toenail has the same authority as any other member of that body. He has the same right to use the name of Jesus. He said that anytime any person in the church or on the outside of the church is living in such a way, and doing certain things that would intimidate, hinder, and embarrass, and retard the ministry of that church, you can always know that it is an evil spirit. Then we are supposed to deal with that spirit. The trouble with us is that we try to deal with people, and my, doesn't that get us into a mess.
You see, we can't exercise authority over the people outside the body of Christ but we can deal with the spirit that's operating there. I asked him then how we do that. He said that in the privacy of your own prayer closet you should say, "you foul spirit that's operating in the life of so and so hindering and embarrassing this church I command you to desist in you maneuvers."
I was preaching in a Full Gospel Church in California along this line and the pastor told me a year afterward that he had three different families in his church that had given a lot of trouble. He knew they were good people but he knew after I preached that it was just the devil causing trouble. They were unconsciously listening to the devil. One of them was his Sunday School Superintendent and another was a board member. In the privacy of his own study he just simply took authority over the spirits in those people that were causing trouble and commanded those evil spirits to stop in their maneuvers right then. He said that it worked so smoothly, it almost scared him...

Chapter 6: Testimonies
...I want to share our experience in a home delivery to help others. My husband and I had been married for eight years without children. In Novembers of 1976, I went to a minister for deliverance. During this session it was revealed that a hex was upon me because someone showed me water-witching when I was ten years old.
One of the curses was no children. This was done in complete ignorance of the fact that water-witching is demonic, and it opened a door to Satan. Before my husband [and] I were married, we had consulted a ouija board, thinking it was just a game. Also, a spirit was interfering in my blood to prevent our having children. After all these things were revealed, we broke the power of Satan in the Name of Jesus, and I was set free. I was redeemed from the curse (Gal. 3:13) and conceived the next month. Praise Jesus!...

Chapter 11: Miracles Do Happen
Anyone who has done hand-to-hand combat with Satan knows what I had to learn the hard way: The worst times of battle come during the long, dark, night hours. Satan fights his best at night. He loves darkness. He is the very ruler of darkness.
During the first month I dreaded going to sleep. Satan knew that I was learning to stand up to his attacks while I was awake and alert. Ah, but those night hours, when one is asleep and the mind is not alert to the enemy's approach -- that's when he's at his best. I began to have the most tormenting nightmares, reliving every pain of the past. There was not a moment's peace to be found while I was sleeping. Every moment was filled with terror. Johanna put a small handbell on the nightstand in order to call her if I needed her. I never needed to use the bell, for my screams awakened her almost nightly.
Satan may have been a bully during the daytime, but when darkness fell he became the master of deception. I was unable to fight his deception because the nightmares were so real; it was difficult to separate reality from imagination. At times he was so deceiving that I was certain I was still being abused by the evil persons of my past.
Oftentimes, and for a period of time it was every night, I would awaken to hear Johanna praying beside me, rebuking and binding those spirits that Satan had sent to terrorize me. I became very familiar with her prayers. She would pray in the most authoritative voice I had ever heard: "Satan, I come against you in the name of Jesus Christ. I come against every evil spirit you send to do your bidding. I command your workers of iniquity to take your hands off my sister and depart from her. Lord Jesus, I ask for the covering and the shielding of Your blood over her mind and body. In Jesus' name, Amen."
But Satan was relentless. He and the spirits who had been sent to do his bidding would not back off after the first prayer. They did not want to leave a person over whom they had had free reign to torment and terrorize for years upon years. Oftentimes he would hang in there with a fierceness that would intimidate even the mature Christian warrior.
Satan attacked me in diverse ways. I often felt as if I were choked to death -- I actually felt hands on my throat and found myself gasping for air. I often heard the fiendish laughter of evil spirits, and occasionally I felt their presence around me. Sometimes the spirits would make the sounds of babies crying in torment -- the crying sounds that I had heard in reality as I witnessed the torture of a baby used in a satanic ritual. One night Johanna found me crawling into the bedroom closet in an attempt to get away from the mimicking sounds which the evil spirits were making of crying babies...
...As the nights went by and battle upon battle was fought, I became strong enough to fight along with Johanna. I repeated the words she prayed. Finally, when she felt that I was strong enough to pray on my own, she said, "You be watchman over your own spirit and soul. When you see the evil one sneaking up, you address him in the name of Jesus Christ. You sound the alarm and pray, 'No! I spot you, and I see you for what you are. I reject you. I renounce you. I rebuke you. And I shatter and break your curses. I will allow no spirit that is not from God to remain around me. I am not subject to you, for Jesus has set me free. The Lord Jesus Christ is my Master, and I obey Him only. Go! I command you to leave in the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!'"
When I began to fight on my own and use to power of prayer I felt for the first time in my life that I was in control, not Satan. At the end of every battle, Satan had to flee. And he did!
It was then that the Lord ministered to me. Often too exhausted to move, Johanna would help me to sit up in bed. I would rest my head on her shoulder as she read words of comfort, encouragement, and strength from the Word of God...
[I will both lay me down in peace, and sleep: for thou, LORD, only makest me dwell in safety. (Psalm 4:8 KJV)]
[We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; (2 Corinthians 4:8,9 KJV]
[For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day...While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal. (2 Corinthians 4:16,18 KJV]
[The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? the LORD is the strength of my life; of whom shall I be afraid? When the wicked, even mine enemies and my foes, came upon me to eat up my flesh, they stumbled and fell. Though an host should encamp against me, my heart shall not fear: though war should rise against me, in this will I be confident. (Psalm 27:1-3 KJV].
It was those "songs in the night" that brought healing to our wearied minds and bodies. Johanna would read and read. Oftentimes, if they were Scriptures I knew, I would say them softly with her. It was a precious time -- a time of being loved with the love of Jesus Christ.
The night battles usually ended with something that was totally incongruent with combat. Something was sure to strike us both as being funny. We would laugh and laugh until we ended up saying, "No more, no more!" The Lord surely must have a sense of humor. That laughter, usually after five o'clock, relieved us of the strain and exhaustion of a long night's battle. We were laughing. Dawn was breaking. Another victory had been won!

Ch 6 Confrontation with Demons
The First Battle
While Lydia and I were waiting for Pastor Watson and the woman, we received a surprise visit from John and Sherry Faulkner, a Presbyterian couple who had recently been baptized in the Holy Spirit. We told them about the visitors we were expecting and invited them to stay and pray.
Then Eric Watson arrived with a fair-haired, blue-eyed woman he introduced as Mrs. Esther Henderson. I scanned her closely, looking for some outward evidence of her strange spiritual condition— a wild look in her eye, perhaps, or a metallic ring in her voice. But she seemed to be a perfectly ordinary, middle-class American housewife, somewhere in her middle thirties, I judged. She did not seem nervous or frightened.
Pastor Watson got down to business immediately. He sat Esther down in a chair and explained, “She’s been delivered from a demon of nicotine, but there are others.”
Listening to what he had to say, I decided to remain neutral until the Lord gave me some clarity or direction.
Pastor Watson stood in front of Esther and said in a loud voice, “You evil spirits, I command you to come out of Esther!”
When there was no obvious response, his voice grew louder and he repeated the same words: “I command you to come out!” Still nothing happened. “I know you are there,” the pastor continued, “and I command you to come out, in the name of Jesus!”
The moment he mentioned the name of Jesus, there was a definite reaction from Esther. As I watched closely, her countenance changed. It was as though another personality was coming to the surface. A yellow, sulfurous glow appeared in the center of each eyeball. I knew there was another power inside this ordinary-looking Baptist housewife.
Eric Watson continued to stand and shout at whatever it was. Apparently he felt that shouting gave him more authority. But after a while, seeming to realize he was making no progress, he looked questioningly toward me.
I had been thinking it over, recalling especially the methods of Jesus. So I took my stand in front of Esther and said something like this: “Now, you evil spirit that’s in this woman, I’m talking to you and not to the woman. What is your name? In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, I command you to answer me.”
The answer came immediately— just one syllable, uttered with incredible venom: “Hate!”
Everything in the woman’s face registered pure, undiluted hatred. Never in all my life had I seen such hatred in anybody’s eyes.
The promptness of the demon’s answer took me by surprise. I did not know what to do next. But I decided to follow the instructions Jesus had given His disciples.
“In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ,” I commanded, “you spirit of hate, come out of this woman.”
An insolent voice, not in the least like Esther’s, replied, “This is my house. I’ve lived here 35 years. And I’m not coming out.”
Unbidden, there came to my mind the Bible passage in which the unclean spirit that goes out of a man says, “I will return to my house from which I came” (Matthew 12:44). So the demon’s reference to Esther as “my house” was in line with Scripture.
With this in mind, I said to the demon, “In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, you are coming out.”
The demon continued to defy me while I continued to say, “In the name of the Lord Jesus, you are coming out!”
It was a real conflict of wills. It seemed that I had to beat the demon down stage by stage. Each stage took quite a while. But the more I quoted Scripture and used the name of Jesus, the more I gained ascendancy over my enemy. Eventually the demon began to bargain with me. “If I come out,” it said, “I’ll come back.” I said, “No, you’ll come out and you’ll stay out.”
Then it said, “Well, even if I come out, my brothers are here and they’ll kill her.” I said, “No, you’ll come out first and your brothers will come out after you.” At the same time, I realized I had picked up a useful piece of information. Apparently there was more than one demon there.
Then the demon said, “Even if we come out of her, we’ve still got her daughter.” I said, “No, you’ll come out of Esther first and then you’ll come out of her daughter.” I had not known that Esther had a daughter, but I was following a simple principle: Whatever the demon said, I said the opposite.
At this point the demon changed its tactics. Without any warning Esther’s arms rose up and crossed over her throat, and she began to throttle herself with her own hands. Her face turned purple and her eyes began to protrude out of her head. John Faulkner, the Presbyterian, who was taller and heavier than I, joined me, and with our united strength we finally succeeded in pulling Esther’s hands away from her throat. Her strength was supernatural.
Then I returned to my battle with the demon. I began to feel a tremendous pressure inside my belly, like an inflated balloon, that seemed to be pushing against the demon in Esther. Suddenly a hissing sound came out of Esther’s mouth. Her head fell forward limply and her body relaxed. At the same time, the “balloon” inside me was deflated. I knew the demon had gone out...

Chapter 2: The Occult Revolution
I was a guest speaker a few years ago at a church in Newport Beach, California. After the service was over, the pastor asked if I would meet with a young girl who had some serious problems in her life -- problems they believed were directly related to her involvement in psychic phenomenon, possibly related to prior mission field activities. The pastor described some of her experiences to me, including ones that had taken place with a Christian psychologist present.
"Walter," he said, "it appears to me that we are dealing with Satan."
I agreed to meet with her, and as we pulled into the parking lot of the motel where I was staying, I suddenly felt we should pray. We bowed our heads and started praying, and it was a good thing that we did. You see, parked next to us was a car, and inside of it was the young lady we had come to see. The moment we started praying, she became semicatatonic, and strange sounds began coming out of her. Her eyes were glassy, and she told us later she could hear everything we were saying and see everything we were doing, but she couldn't move. She could not move out of that automobile. She was bound to the seat. After we finished praying, I went over to see her and there she was, sitting in the seat making very strange noises.
I looked at her and said, "If you get out of the car and come with us, they will leave you alone, and you will be free. But you must come!"
She made a herculean effort to get off that seat, but she couldn't do it. Two men had to lift her out of the car and carry her across the lawn to the room. The moment we entered that room, she made it almost impossible for four grown men to hold her down. I had never seen such power in one human being. It exploded so fast, and the violence and sounds that accompanied were so amazing that I said to the pastor, "Now we know what we're dealing with, and I think we'll be here for quite a while."
Three hours later, we knew this girl was full of demons, and it was not the first century; it was the twentieth century! This was a girl who had lived a Christian life on the surface but was never a Christian -- a girl who played the game but never believed it -- a girl who had taught Sunday school while she worshiped Satan, and finally was taken over by him. She had all the form and all the appearance: the perfect tare in the wheat field.
Four men held her down while we prayed for her. Whenever I said, "In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ, come out!" her body leaped, twisted, and jerked all over the bed. Her mouth smiled in a funny, twisted way, and she said, "We can outlast you."
But we weren't about to be outlasted.
This went on for three hours, and every once in a while she would groan, and one demon would leave. After that, she would sit up and say, "I feel fine. I feel so much better. Let's go."
The psychologist, who was not a believer in demon possession until he walked into that room, was a firm believer. It changed the course of his whole practice. He told me, "I would never have believed this without seeing it. I believe."
I knew he believed because one time, during the course of the evening, she said, "I feel all right now, but I'm tired. I think I'll go home." And as she tried to get out of the bed, he said, "Oh, no you don't!" as he grabbed her and pulled her back. The moment she was in the bed she growled and writhed; it took four of us to hold her down again.
The switch from normalcy to possession was instantaneous. A terrible presence invaded the room and remained there the entire time. At the end of three hours, we asked her to pray, but she couldn't say the name of Christ. It stuck in her throat. The muscles in her neck knotted up, and the veins in her forehead protruded. She couldn't open her mouth and say "Jesus" for a full five minutes. We prayed for her; we knew if she could pray to Him she would be delivered. We told her to pray and ask God for forgiveness for praying to Satan and to "Renounce Satan and all his works."
She said, "I can't do it! I can't do it!"
"Renounce him in the name of the Lord Jesus."
She finally cried out, "Jesus, forgive me!" She renounced Satan and all of his works, even though it took her at least half an hour to be able to say it.
Three hours later, a totally different girl got up off that bed, hugged her husband, and walked out the door. She told us later that she knew the demons had been there all these years, but she was afraid of them. They'd threatened to kill her if she ever told anyone about them. She was part of a Christian church -- a professing Christian -- but not a believer. The church kept watch over this woman and her family after these events occurred, and I understand from them that she's a brand-new wife and mother, and they have a brand-new family.
How did this happen? It began in the Far East and continued in America; she reached out to the occult. She knew the second most powerful force in the universe was satanic. She was discouraged and downtrodden, and she didn't get her prayers answered by God. So what did she do? She reached out into the world of the occult and gave herself to Satan. She turned the handle on the door and opened it, and that's what came in.
This is what we find today: people in the world of the occult endorsing Christianity. They go along with the surface of the gospel, but in their hearts, they do not believe it.

Part II. Chapter 4: Triumph Over Evil
HIGHWAY TO LIBERTY
...The pastors’ prayers were penetrating the veil between the worlds. There was a fierce spiritual warfare going on. The angelic host of God and the foul demons of hell were engaging in a battle for my body. I could feel my stomach tighten with apprehension and hear the demons groaning and gnashing their teeth. I saw many of them in their demonic forms leaving me. Some were like monsters. Some were shaped like animals while others were like sea creatures. Spirits came out that looked like sea serpents, crocodiles, octopuses, crabs, whales, fish, sharks, squids, and mermaids. Some looked like snakes, monkeys, chickens, pigs, evil ferocious monsters and beasts. There were legions of them. Their faces were gnarly and twisted with fear. There were many big, black giants hovering in the room. A whispered scream forced itself through my lips, twisting the muscles of my mouth like a distasteful medicine.
I could also see the angelic hosts of God. There was a strategic warfare going on between these demons and the angelic hosts. I saw armies of warrior angels. They looked like men with incredible physiques and shining beauty. Some appeared in their angelic forms with wings. The demons seemed to be in great fear of these angels. They were battling grotesque creatures with reptilian faces and thousands of disfigured forms. It was a hand-to-hand combat. They were fighting the demons with flaming swords that were twisting and flashing. However, the most interesting thing that I was witnessing was that both armies were responding to the words being spoken by God’s ministers!
“We hate you,” they screamed. The demons also seemed to fear the ministers. They seemed to fight to hold onto my body because whenever a demon was cast out, an angel quickly bound and captured him and took him away.
The demons were screeching in loud voices “Have you come to destroy us before our time? Leave us alone! His mother promised him. He belongs to us. He was promised to us by his father.”
The deliverance ministers just seemed to ignore everything that they were doing and saying and continued to press them to leave. It felt as though a million demons were slapping and kicking me. Some people would hold my feet and others were restraining my arms. I could feel my facial expression change when suddenly the demonic spirits took over my personality. Sometimes my face felt as though the skin was being ripped off. The ungodly creature would take control of my eyes and glance around the room. I heard him say that he was looking to see if there was a hypocrite in the room. “I must obey his commands but I will go to another body,” he said. A shudder dislodged every bit of my composure. Again I heard his voice repeating that he wanted to find another body to enter but could not see one. “Aaaaa-ah” I cried, my voice strangely distorted my body arching upward. My stomach felt as if a million razor blades were slashing me, bending me forward in excruciating pain.
The pastor spoke, “I bind the strongman. You have no power here. I bind your power over Vagalas’ mind, body or spirit. You must leave in Jesus’ name.”
A spiritually shaped giant octopus spirit held me tightly, gripping my chest with all its strength. It was trying to take my breath away. His legs were deeply embedded in various parts of my body. The evil thing growled, and I found myself shaking, trembling, and withering and weeping like a defeated child. Then I thrashed around like a fish. These were marine spirits. There were very powerfully rooted in my life because of the time that I spent in the evil City Under the Sea.
All present could see manifestations of the demons and begin to pray for God's protection and the Blood of Jesus. Someone was signing, "There is power, power, wonder-working power in the blood of the Lamb." The demons hated that song. I could feel their absolute contempt rise up inside my mind...
LaRock, Christopher (2011-12-24). John Todd: Beyond The Legend (Kindle Locations 406-417). Christopher Allen LaRock. Kindle Edition.
Although out of witchcraft, Todd was still having problems. He wasn’t completely out of the occult’s grip. As he put it;
“When I was saved, I still contained all of the psychic powers I had for two weeks. And I kept wondering what was going on. And my eyes still had kind of a look that people who have been around Witchcraft, or have been in Witchcraft, know the look I’m talking about. And my eyes still contained this look. And people in the church were wondering what was going on. Although I was trying to live a Christian life really hard, wasn’t really involved in sin, but still had all of this psychic phenomenon happening around me and was still very bothered with the things I had come out of and addicted to them. Not the drugs, but the psychic powers. And finally the church decided (that) if it was good enough for Paul, it was good enough for them. And they took me off in a room and prayed for me for about five hours. And they demanded that the spirits that I had allowed in myself, through asking them to come in through witchcraft, to leave . . . They even called the demon of epilepsy out of me . . . And when I walked out of that room, I no longer had any psychic power whatsoever.” - John Todd
But he wasn’t out of the woods yet.
There were still those vows of secrecy that he had been required to take upon becoming a member of the council of thirteen. Those vows would have to be broken completely in order for him to sever himself off completely from his former life. He would have to reveal everything he had been privy to and to publicize it all. And this is exactly what he did.

CHAPTER 4 Strange Dreams
After the blood covenant with Kathy, I experienced many strange and horrifying nightmares that continued for a very long time even after Christ had separated us. I do not remember the exact order in which they came, but they must have been signs of the deep spiritual bondages that had engulfed my life. I had most of those nightmares when Kathy and I slept together in my room.
In one of such nightmares, I found myself in a town in the middle of a thick forest. The buildings there looked white and modern. I suddenly found myself having involuntary sexual intercourse with an old black woman out in the open...
...While in the dream world on another occasion, I found myself in a village with nothing but trees and an old house in the middle of it. The leaves of the trees looked like serpents. As I got closer, the serpent-like leaves took striking positions and started trying to bite me. Again I screamed the name, JESUS, and woke up.
Whiles sleeping with Kathy by my side on another occasion, I dreamt that I was in bed with a woman-like affair. The walls of this dream-state room looked beige and the window curtains looked semi-transparent and beige. This dream must have taken place on a bright summer afternoon in the dream world because I could see everything in the room so vividly that I thought I was having a broad daylight experience. The woman-like affair had long fingernails, clear crimson pupils, big wide-opened eyes, a rough hair that stood straight up on her head, and sharp vampire-like teeth. This woman-like affair was black in complexion, had on a white nightgown, and looked very frightening and menacing. This demon started snarling at me while coming at me with her long finger nails as if she was trying to bite and scratch me up. As she snarled and came at me, the power of God came upon me and I suddenly started rebuking her in the mighty name of JESUS. It was a very frightening nightmare. I thank God that he gave me the power to rebuke that demon before she could hurt me.
As I said, “I rebuke you in Jesus’ name! I come against you with the blood of Jesus Christ! I send the fire of the Holy Ghost against you!” et cetera, the power of God struck her, and she started writhing violently and could not come at me anymore.
All of a sudden, I woke up from my sleep...

Ch. 1: The Battle Begins
...But demons can occupy our space illegally, just as the moneychangers did at the Temple, and when they do they will try to keep us from ejecting them.
The Lord showed me something about this concept in a vivid dream He gave me. In this dream, I was living in a tiny, dilapidated house that was almost falling apart. As you can imagine, I did not have a good feeling living in that house.
Now, right next door to this run-down house was another house. This second house was gorgeous. It was brand new. It was modern. It was clean. It was big. It was beautiful--and it was my house. I was the owner. But I was not living in the nice house; I was living in the broken-down house.
Why was I not living in the nice house that I owned? Because it was inhabited by squatters. They had human form, but they were demonically energized, violent and hateful. I was afraid to take possession of the house because they were threatening me, telling me what they would do to me if I tried. I was certain that if I set foot in the house they would attack, and God knows what they would do. So I was being tormented, letting other people take what was mine, afraid even to go inside.
Eventually, as the dream progressed, I got up enough courage. I decided that I was not going to be afraid and tormented and let them have my house. It was no longer an option. I was going to have to face those demons and drive them out.
So I went around to the side door and waited for the chief demon. When he came out, I grabbed him by the collar, threw him to the ground and began punching him in the face.
At first it seemed as though nothing was happening. He acted as though I was having no effect on him at all. My punches did not seem to be making even the smallest dent.
But you know what? I was so focused on defeating this demon that I just kept pounding and pounding. All of a sudden, I heard a sound like psssshhhh, as the air went out from him. He evaporated, and was gone...
Dear brothers and sisters,
This prayer is the result of several personal situations, experiences, attacks and cries from the hearts of those who have contacted me for prayer and assistance in dealing with enemy spirits. It comes as a result of the need for deliverance and breakthrough, to walk in freedom from curses, not only generational but curses placed on people by witches or warlocks or those in the demonic realm. The fact that the darkness is so widespread and ever-increasing is more than apparent. We as the people of God, must obey the commandments given to us to rise to the occasion and utilize the tools Father has given us in His Holy Word to battle the enemy forces. We are not victims! We have been given instructions on how to pray, and it is our responsibility to take this seriously and be vigilant in doing so each and every day. This is not a prayer to be taken lightly, or said quickly. Please examine your hearts and consider having communion in fellowship with Father prior to saying this prayer as you are led by The Holy Spirit.
I am also adding links below that point to the seriousness and reality that we are all facing as the body of Christ.
WORDS FROM OUR FATHER
My children, it is I your Kinsman Redeemer, the One who was raised from the dead. You are precious in My sight, and I love you with an everlasting love, this you know.
I would this day ask you again to trust Me with all of your steps, from the first to the last. When I ask you to step out boldly, I mean in the Spirit, for your weapons of warfare are not carnal.
This prayer that I have asked My daughter to make known is for this time. A very powerful darkness has descended upon you and this world, and the gates of hell have been opened. Prayer is your most powerful weapon, as it allows My hand of mercy and grace to move powerfully on your behalf and on the behalf of others. This prayer that I am asking you to say out loud in faith is to set the captives free from the grip that the enemy has on their hearts and lives. Bondage has many layers and the effectual prayers of the righteous availeth much in My Kingdom.
Will you trust Me to lead you? Will you trust Me to know that I would never put you in harm's way? Will you answer My call upon your lives to be prayer warriors and intercede for not only your loved ones and families, but the lost and all of mankind?
My words are holy and they are true. They will never return void. I am asking you to join Me in this prayer. We walk as One mind, One body, and One Spirit. I am calling you now to step out in faith. Will you allow Me to move through your prayers powerfully? Will you do this for Me, as I have done for you?
Your loving Savior,
(*) Please pray the prayer below, believing with all of your heart that Yahushua will set you free and deliver you from the enemy and all he has used to come against you in this life.
FATHER'S PRAYER AGAINST ALL FORMS OF SATANIC BONDAGE
Dearest Father ABBA,
Yahushua, I pray that Your blood would wash over my mind, my body and my spirit and cleanse me from any unrighteousness that may be found in me. Renew in me a pure thought life, and make me holy as you are holy. Create in me clear eyes, clean hands, a pure heart, and a steadfast spirit that desires you and only you in this life.
I come to you to ask you for healing from the evil, demonic and perverse spirits and demonic attachments that have manifested in and/or around me, or have affected me or any of my loved ones. I take responsibility for the things I've done, the things I've allowed, and even things that have been done to me against my will.
I bind and come against in Yahushua's name any one or anything that has cursed me, placed a spell on me, or attacked me. I stand in your power and authority and will take a stand against any anti-christ spirit that has arisen in my life.
Right now, I forgive ______ (speak the names of those that have sinned against you) so that I can also have my own sins forgiven, and I ask You to empower me to do so. As a matter of my will, I choose to forgive them and ask that You, Father give me grace and strength to not take this offense back into my heart. I ask that You heal those that have perpetrated sins against me, and set us free from the perversity and sin that has had us bound. Wall in with a hedge of thorns all those who have arisen against me or my loved ones, in the seen or unseen realm, until they find you as their first love, Father.
Yahushua, I give myself to You and ask that You forgive all sin in my life.
Father, in the name of Yahushua, I repent on behalf of myself and those in my family line who have had sexual relations with evil spirits, familiar spirits, with Incubus/Succubus spirits, and the demon Mare. I renounce and break any covenants or dedications to the Nephilim, Baal, or Belial.
I repent for anyone in my family line who has had any connections, ties, agreements, or allegiances to the Harlot spirit and the Queen of Heaven. (Jeremiah 7:18-spirit of Jezebel)
I repent for all who participated in any fertility rites or rituals, and who sacrificed, worshipped, danced before, or gave offerings to any gods or goddesses.
Father, I repent for myself and all those in my family line who have had night or spirit husbands, night or spirit wives. Father, forgive us/them for rejecting You as our husband and forgive us/them for our unfaithfulness towards You. Forgive us/them for finding comfort from these spirits and for looking to them to fulfill our/their desires and needs.
Father, I repent of every contact, personal and generational with all night-husbands and night-wives, and I renounce all night husbands and night wives which have been assigned to function specifically within my family. I repent of the blood covenants which opened the door to these spirits. I cut every soul tie with this family spirit. I repent of the deception adopted by my ancestors that polygamy is acceptable and for any deception which was one of the ways in which the door was opened to sexual spirits.
I repent for those in my family line who were involved in astral travel, dark practices such as the occult, and new age practices. I repent for any involvement with witches, sorcerers, magistellus, or familiar spirits. I renounce all night spells, charms, enchantments, or allurements used by witches and warlocks at night. I renounce any positions, possessions, powers, or any secret knowledge that have come from darkness.
Please close all ungodly pathways, gateways, portals, cracks, or seams into ungodly realms or the underworld. Bind anyone or anything that is using astral travel to torment me or my loved ones. Remove all defilement and tainting, and as Your child, please restore my godly dreams from heavenly places.
I repent for myself or any of my ancestors who have visited sangomas, witches, or warlocks for their “love witchcraft.” I repent of them buying, accepting, and using their love potions. I repent of rituals performed, invocations offered up, and any using of baths, washes, charms and psychic prayers. I repent of having my body rubbed with ungodly ceremonial liquids or allowing ungodly ceremonial or commercial liquids to be poured over my body with or without my knowledge.
I repent for the breaking up of marriages, covenants, divorces, and the destroyed relationships that resulted from
having relations with these spirits. I ask that you would break off from me and my family line all false love, lust, hatred, impotency, frigidity, sickness and disease that have been caused by these spirits and renounce any stronghold formed by these spirits.
I repent on behalf of myself and my family line for all fornication, adultery, incest, orgies, sodomy, homosexuality,
and sexual addiction. I repent for all pornography, rape, abuse, ungodly masturbation, lust and fantasy lust, and any ungodly sexual contact with other people, any bestiality, and all sexual perversion and sex for money.
I repent on behalf of myself and my family line for shedding innocent blood through abortion and human sacrifices. I repent of murder, pride, greed, rage, hate, jealousy, pretense, falseness, cursing, and lying.
Father, on behalf of myself and my family line, I repent of having been involved in acts that showed worship and obedience to Satan and his demons through having sexual relations outside of marriage. Father, forgive us for not following Your commands.
In the Name of Yahushua, I renounce all ungodly soul ties with every person I have been sexually involved with, physically or spiritually. Father, I ask You to break these soul ties from my spirit, my mind and my body. Break, you evil spirits in Yahushua's mighty name. I now apply the Blood of Yahushua Ha Mashiach over all ungodly ties.
Father, I repent for allowing these evil spirits to reduce and control my will. I now command my emotions, my mind, my will and my intellect to come under your authority.
I am no longer vulnerable, or accessible to these demon spirits. I bind Satan and all his works. I stand in the authority that I have as a believer and in the name of Yahushua Ha Mashiach, I cast out any spirits that have been residing in or around my body or my dwelling place, or those of my loved ones. I command all confusion to leave, and I call back all parts that have been scattered or fragmented to come back into one accord with my Master and King, Yahushua.
Satan, you are not my husband or my master. I renounce you. I divorce you. I want nothing to do with you ever again. I reject your seed and your lies. I reject, refuse, renounce and divorce all unclean demonic spirits of perversity including spirits of lust, pornography, pedophilia, voyeurism, domination, brutality, homosexuality, confusion, gender confusion, astral projection and spirit travel, mischievous and trouble-making spirits, spirits of double-mindedness, unbelief, sodomy, rape, anger, rage, bitterness, unforgiveness, witchcraft, lust, idolatry, hardheartedness, accusation, familiar and familial spirits, pride, rebellion, and death.
I renounce and divorce Lilu and Lilith, and all the offspring that comes from Satan and his demons. If there is anything of Satan's seed implanted within me, I command it to shrivel and die immediately in the name and authority of Yahushua Ha Mashiach. I repent for any ways that I have knowingly or unknowingly come into agreement with these spirits, and I humbly submit myself to the King of kings and the Lord of lords, Yahushua, and the authority of His Holy Spirit. I submit to You, O God, and I resist the enemy, commanding him to flee from me and take everything he has put on me, everything he has brought into my life, and every seed that he has implanted into my belief system. I reject every seed of Satan - I command them to die immediately in Yahushua's
name. I curse Satan's seed and declare, "YOU WILL BEAR NO MORE FRUIT EVER AGAIN," by the name and authority of Jesus Christ. His blood covers these sins, and I command these doors to be shut, never to open again.
Let every cord of sin, shame, fear, witchcraft, and soul ties from ungodly sources be severed now, in Jesus' name. I renounce the soul ties to former lovers, spouses, and others that may be tied to me in the spirit. Let any fragments of their souls return to them, and let any scattered and fragmented parts of my soul return to me, in Yahushua's name. Let all those that practice witchcraft find the door sealed and closed by the blood of Yahushua. I bind and forbid the entrance of demonic spirits into my life in Jesus' name, according to your promise in Matthew 18:18 - what is bound on earth has already been bound in heaven.
I loose myself from all shame, resentment, fear, insecurity and feelings of inferiority that have come upon me as a result of sexual molestation and other sins against my body-both those that were done without my consent, and those that I may have participated in willingly or unwillingly. I command them to go now back to the abyss in Yahushua's name. I bind the screech owl that brings terror by night and forbid it to enter my life, that of my family or my home, in the name and authority of Yahushua.
In the name of Yashusha Ha Mashiach, I renounce and repent of all worship of the Baphomet goat god through my own sexual sin or the sins of my ancestors, and I bind any and all spirits that have come to torment me or attach themselves to me or my loved ones because of those sins.

In Yahushua's name, I bind and cast out all of the above spirits! I draw the blood of Yahushua around the root at which they came in. I close the doors and seal them with Yahushua's blood. I send these spirits to Yahushua for judgment and forbid them to enter me or my life, or the lives of my loved ones ever again. Get out of me and from around me you evil spirits and go to Yahushua NOW!
I loose now the power of the living God, Yahushua Ha Mashiach to cleanse and purify my body, soul, mind and spirit from these demonic spirits. I loose Father's love, joy and peace upon me and my loved ones. I loose pure thoughts and dreams of the Kingdom and my Father, prophetic visions and dreams. I pray to be completely infused with the powerful Spirit of God in my temple, His holy sanctuary.
Father, I pray for a complete recovery and fresh revelation because of your holiness and grace pouring over me and through me.
I receive by faith the healing for my mind, my emotions, my body and spirit. I receive by faith the mind of Christ, and I choose this day to pull up the root of bitterness and replace it with the love of God. I ask You, Lord to plant forgiveness, purity, obedience, peace, joy and love in place of bitterness. Fill me with Your Holy Spirit and let the spirit of adoption be poured out into my heart in Yahushua's name. Let your love and acceptance captivate my heart, O God.
I receive by faith healing for my emotions, belief system, and perspective towards God, myself and others. I declare: “Because the Great I AM lives within me, I become what YOU are, O God. Because the living Word of God dwells within me, You are transforming me, renewing my mind to become the living word, as Your truth is lived out in me. You are transforming me to become the anointed of God. I am not a victim, I am victorious. I do not fear; the enemy is fearful of me. I declare that no weapon formed against me shall prosper, and every tongue that rises up against me is refuted according to Your word in Isaiah 54:17. I walk in the fullness of God in Yahushua's name.
Help me, Father to identify and break free from any relationships and situations that are unhealthy and undesirable in Your eyes. Help me to honor Your word, Your will and Your wishes. You know my weaknesses. I pray for strength to overcome them. For those things that You know I cannot or will not be able to overcome in my own strength, I pray that You would take them out of my hand and let it be done according to Your will for my life, and for the benefit of Your will carried out in the lives of others, too. Father, replace those relationships with better ones that will strengthen me in my walk with you and fill the void for love, relationship and friendship.
I thank you, Yahushua Ha Mashiach – Jesus Christ for being my Healer, Restorer, Redeemer and Protector. I thank you for replacing every lie in my belief system with the truth that will set me free.
Thank You, Holy Spirit for releasing revelation as to my true identity in Christ. Show me how You see me. Show me if I have believed lies about my true identity.
I thank You for establishing and settling me in faith and truth in Yahushua's mighty name.
I trust in you Abba and I obey. I receive by faith all of the promises you have made to me in your Holy Word. Please hear my prayers and answer them according to your perfect will.
Amen and Amen!
