Vision of the great earthquake; a follow up

untitled

This is a follow up and written description of the vision I recorded via You Tube recently titled End Times: Revelation 16 in a vision and a word about Russia. (See Channel Angela Flippen)

Approximately 10 years ago ,I had shut myself away in prayer. I was in prayer about ministry at the time, and was only seeking direction from God about it when I was suddenly dropped into a vision that I did not understand and still do not.

I instantly saw the earth and began to see massive tornadoes going over the land and hurricanes pummeling the coast lines. I somehow knew that I was seeing the United States of America. The next thing I saw was men (possibly Africa) dressed in tribal clothing being scorched to death by a great heat, then suddenly my went to where I could see from  above the earth and I saw it split into by a massive earthquake, it was such a huge quake that it is hard to describe . It seemed to start in Mexico and went up all the way intothe edges of Canada ,but my vision was focused and directed toward the United States . It happened so fast that I did  not have the ability to locate the exact location by cities. I will say ,for sure it was the center of the country. Like the country was completely divided by this quake.I tried very hard to recall this vision because each scene was like a quick flash, I did see the last part the clearest though. I wondered if I would be able to reach my family. I called my family and told them what I had seen and realized that this earthquake was so large virtually everyone on Earth would be affected by it . I have family in Texas , Oklahoma and Arkansas so I became very frightened. I notated the vision on a globe and went out and sat on my porch still meditating on what I had seen. God spoke to me clearly saying , Daughter there will be a mighty war, I said , Yes Lord, we are at war now.(The Iraqi War) when  He said , I say unto you that you will see the mighty war.

I told my husband and a few people , confirmed some things in scripture and put it aside. It seemed like a vision for another time, it did not seem relevant.

It has come to my mind again recently, and knowing the work God has us doing now (intense deliverance from Babylon), I believe he was showing me the end to the beginning. In other words he showed me this first, one of my first prophetic visions, and I believe it will come about last, in the last days.

The works and ministry we were doing at that time seemed small, but this vision was so real, I can not help but believe that I saw it for a reason.

I now believe that I was seeing Revelation chapter 16.

No one, including me, wants to see these things happen, but it explains why we believers are being purged and purified, almost to the point of being unbearable. We may not look like the church on the corner, we may not fit in to a lot of places. When you are getting deliverance and being purified by fire, many will shun you, even desert you. But know this, God is for you. He is doing this now, to prepare us for that great day, the second coming of Christ.

Your Bible and mine tells us that in that day many will be deceived , but he also promises that his elect people will not only endure, but overcome. He speaks of our light shining like the firmaments, instructing many. Light is symbolic for revelation and truth. Seek him in truth, because the time is upon us where we cannot afford to be deceived. Jesus speaks of an end time church as those who will rule with him for one thousand years. Are you trustworthy? Are you among those that will do the work now, when the enemy has his most power?

I am working towards that day, that everyone fears and no one believes will happen. I have answered “YES”.

Visit our channel at youtube.com  Angela Flippen for more on this and get our book for a deliverance and battle plan for the church! We must root out these demons and there doctrines and we have much work to do, possibly in a short time.

I pray everyday for revival and deliverance for the church. I am very aware that narrow is the way and few will find it. I believe it is because of the darkness upon the earth, the demonic kingdom and great delusion. The end time church must grow up, get clean, try the spirits and repent. This is our time to battle for the kingdom of God and worldly weapons will do us no good. We need ,must and will display power if we humble ourselves to God and submit to deliverance.

Pray with me : Father, we humbly accept your call for deliverance. Forgive us of pride. We desire to obey you and serve you in perilous times. Walk with us , Oh Lord in power and might. Have mercy upon us ,and take us where we need to go in response to your true voice. We desire to serve you only, In the name of Jesus Christ ,Amen.

Angie’s note– Earthquakes and storms are symbolic for judgment and change coming. The division of America was a profound symbol in this vision , but I cannot help but feel that it will happen literally.

Prophecy update from me.

29-07-2012(JOHN 8-32 )In this post I want to share the prophetic whispers in my spirit from the Lord about the second coming of Christ.
I published a You tube video titled “Mark of the Beast; A warning dream”.
The popular teachings of the rapture have spawned books and movies that have seemed to bring people to repent and get saved; for that I am thankful. I do not wish to undo any good thing that God is doing. However, I have been awakened to the true reality of things by way of dreams causing me to look deeper into the second coming of Christ.
It is commonly known as the END TIMES, because it will be the end of things on planet earth as we know it, but there is much more that has to take place ,even after the second coming. There is no real end of time, time is eternal. But there is a turning point in history, set in place by God where our Lord returns with a rod to judge the nations and the wicked.
Knowing this time is upon us, is enough for me to want to continue to allow the Lord to uproot all darkness that exists in me that will leave me deceived or blind in any way.
The Father has lead me to understand some things that I will share:
1. He will give his people a space and time to repent before he moves, and that time is now.

‘”For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: And if it first begin at us , what shall the end of them that obey not the gospel of God? 1 Peter 4:17


The Lord has told me repeatedly that when I see the church on fire with true repentance, to look up for his coming. And I have to say, I am not seeing that on a large scale and I don’t know if my eyes will see it. God sees the whole picture,I do not. I am however seeing that in individuals that I am in fellowship with. We are being tried, purged and cleansed by fire ,and it hurts. But it so worth it and is pleasing to our Father.


2 .
He is going to allow calamity and disasters to wake his people up. He has told me that His people are very stubborn and he will take drastic measures if need be.

” These have power to shut heaven…To smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.” Revelation 11:6


3.He is going to cause the true believer to literally leave the false religious system because it is a snare to his people. He desires the faithful to walk with him night and day, not just Sunday. He is weeding out the hypocrites
. 

(See Ezekiel chapter 34 for scriptural precedence)

” Then saith he to his servants, The wedding is ready, but they which were bidden were not worthy. Go ye therefore into the highways and as many as ye shall find, bid to the marriage. “Matthew 22:8-9


4
. He is requiring repentance and deliverance for his bride, those that refuse , their hearts will be hardened more.

“And they went out and preached that men should repent. And they cast out many devils, and anointed with oil many that were sick, and healed them .” Mark 6:12-13


5. Those that refuse truth now, will not be able to stand during the tribulation. Deception is a choice and in choosing it, people will be hard pressed to choose His truth in the end.

 ” For the heart of this people is waxed gross (dull, callous), and their ears are dull of hearing, and their eyes have they closed.. ” Acts 28: 27


6
. There is a reason why, after so many salvations and baptisms, that people do not change nor bear  good fruit. He desires a true commitment, not a show. 

“The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armor of light, let us walk honestly…” Romans 13:12


7. Those that refuse to give up
witchcraft and the Occult will be the first to be marked by the enemy. The enemy will and already is staking his claim and using these types for His own purposes. A day will come when they will be so tormented with demons that they will beg to die.

” Because of the multitude of the whoredoms of the well favored harlot, the mistress of witchcrafts, that selleth the nations through her whoredoms, and families through her witchcrafts. Behold, I am against thee, saith the Lord of hosts…I will cast abominable filth upon thee and make thee vile, and will set thee as a gazing stock…” Nahum 3


8. Demon possession will and already is going to a whole new level. People will be able to physically see the changes and manifestations of the devil in others. Even those who have no discernment will notice it and will be powerless against it, they will be confounded and subdued by the wicked.

” And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great has fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage for every unclean and hateful bird.” Revelation 18:2


9. He will start by passing the stubborn and will not waste his time on those who refuse to repent and follow his spirit. Time is short. “Ye stiff necked and uncircumcised in heart and ears, ye do always resist the Holy Ghost; as your fathers did, so do ye. ” Acts 7:51


  Oh how I wish I could say to you that we are at peace and in safety, but I cannot!

Oh how I wish God would give me different dreams and visions, but he will not!

Who so ever transgresses, and abides  not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abides in the doctrine of Christ, He has both the son and the Father. If there come any unto you and bring not this doctrine, receive him NOT into your house, neither bid him God speed. 2 John 1:10

Do you understand the doctrine of Christ? It is easy to see, because He lived it. And so must we. (John 14:6)

Angels among us- a follow up

Archangel%20Michael%20for%20Website (2)I recently posted a You tube video describing an open heaven experience I had with the Lord. ( Please see video titled; Demonic realm in a vision) .This is a follow up of the events before and after this mighty experience.

A bloody man:

For many years , being called to deliverance, I felt just like David whom was told by God that he was too unclean to build his temple. Being a warrior for God came with a price, He was called a bloody man. His son was tasked with the great honor of building the house of the Lord. Having to traffic in the demonic realm so much and deal with that aspect of the kingdom for so long makes me feel the same way. For many years I wondered why I was never allowed to see angels. I begged and prayed for this often. One night I purposed to stay in prayer until it happened, and it did not so I let it go, years ago.

I wrote in my book about a meeting we had with our small group sometime in 2011. That night the wall disappeared and I saw myriads of angels, too many to count and I marveled at this, wondering why there were so many ,I was still thinking small minded and only about our group. These angels were all dressed in blue,royal blue and gold. In my book you will recall that in 2012 while doing the Red River assignment, I was allowed to see them again. One even spoke to me and laid his sword on my head. I had a sore red spot on my head for days after. But I still had no understanding about them.

For many days after the portal opened up in 2013 ,it remained somewhat visible to me. It began fading like a rainbow disappearing but I could still see it. I saw in the unclean realm flickers of gold and blue. I said “They are here, Why are they here now?”  The answer came to my spirit like a swift blow.  They are preparing for battle.

Recently I was speaking with someone who refutes me a lot. I felt a demon pop up and manifest through them , they said to me ,something is looking at you through my eyes. At this point their eyes went black and I decided to do what I never do, I had a conversation with the demon. I called it by name and asked it why it hated me so much, it answered, because of your “anointing”, it even told me the multitude of assignments against me, meant to “kill me spiritually”. Then I sensed it becoming very afraid, the person began twitching and groaning, I told it to look at me and tell me what it saw, It replied “I see angels, one on your right ,one on your left and one behind you, dressed in blue”.  I got up and walked away, thankful that someone else could see them too.

I am always skeptical and bored with stories of people that converse all the time with ‘angels’. People tell me the craziest things like, they leave me feathers  (I hear this a lot) or my guardian angel is Michael and all kinds of stuff that just sounds foolish to me. (The ones I have seen have no wings.) The angels of God are here to do battle, they are not here for me. They are here for God. They are here to do and enforce His will . But yes they ARE here. I did not see them before for a reason.

So shall it be at the end of the world: the angels shall come forth ,and sever the wicked from among the just, and shall cast them into the furnace of fire: their shall be wailing and gnashing of teeth. Matthew 13:49

And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. Matthew 24 Again, they are here, not for me, but for God.  They are here for a reason, believe that.

As a Seer it is my job to tell what I see, it is not my responsibility as to how people receive the information nor what they do with it.

Holy God, let your kingdom come, and thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven , In Jesus ,AMEN

THE PLIGHT OF BEING UNTEACHABLE

Yesterday I did a video teaching on false doctrine. While in thought and prayer about this subject,my spirit was lead to study the subject of being teachable,because it is this moral failure that drives people to the false,and pushes leaders to teach the false,at worst and at best to teach the basic milk all the days of our lives. We pour our time ,energy and virtue into people hoping for them to grow with Christ,thereby making them more powerful and effective in the kingdom,but there are very few whom respond with humility.

It sets the stage for “fluffy preaching”, and it leads to error.

Here are just a few scriptures that instruct us what to Teach and also what to do about unteachable people :

Obey your leaders and submit to their authority. They keep watch over you as men who must give an account. Obey (listen to ) them so that their work will be a joy,not a burden ,for that would be of no advantage to you. Hebrews 13:17

Now we ask you to respect those who work hard among you,who are over you in the Lord and who admonish you. 2 Thessalonians 5:12

Therefore ,rebuke them sharply so they will be sound in the faith. Titus 1:13

The first scripture reference is showing us that your leaders and mine must give an account to God for the way we have handled the persons whom sit under us. It puts the responsibility on the leaders shoulders to take these things seriously, our souls depend upon obedience in this area,thereby making it personal.

While the Holy Spirit is the force that corrects us and convicts us, there is strong scriptural evidence that God uses human authority to do so as well. Even leaders are and should be open to correction by other human beings. None of us have arrived’, so to speak. This creates a transparent relationship ,and does away with the religious spirit,whom is only concerned with outward appearance. It is my belief that being teachable is a must qualification for leadership.

It is also my belief that working with people who have no desire to repent is a complete waste of time.

General scriptures on being teachable :

Let the wise listen and add learning and let the discerning get guidance. Proverbs 1:5

Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge but he who hates correction is stupid. Proverbs 12:1

A wise son heeds his fathers instruction, but a mocker does not listen to rebuke. Proverbs 13:1

He who listens to life giving rebuke will be counted among the wise. Proverbs 15:31

Let a righteous man strike me – it is a kindness. Let him rebuke me – it is oil on my head. My head will not refuse it. Psalms 141:5

Wisdom that comes from above is easily entreated. -Willing to yield to reason James 3:17 

Scripture tells us to not waste time on unteachable people. Jesus himself wasted no time on these types. He knows we can waste our whole lives,resources and energy on people who have no desire to really hear truth.He goes so far as to say that they will do us harm.

Whoever corrects a mocker invites insult. Whoever rebukes a wicked man incurs abuse. Proverbs 9:7-8

Rebuke a wise man and he will love you. Instruct a wise man and he will be wiser still. Proverbs 9:9

Do not give that which is Holy to the dogs (rebellious); do not cast your pearls before swine (unclean), If you do ,they may trample them under their feet and turn and tear you to pieces. Matthew 7:6

Do Not speak to a fool for he will scorn (hate) the wisdom of your words. Proverbs 23:9

A mocker resents correction; he will not consult the wise.Proverbs 15:12

I could go on and on with scripture on this subject, but you get the point.

As the end times are upon us, we see that time is short. Every thing we do for God must count. The litmus test That God gave me about correcting others is this ; I must love them. If I do not speak to you concerning the kingdom, it means I do not care. Scriptures tell us that we will not only be wasting our time and energy, but that very often the unteachable will conclude the relationship by turning against you.

The most important attitude that we need to display in the last days is true humility. We are called to not only be ‘hearers of the Word’, ‘but to be doers of the word’.

If this helps one leader understand and accept that it is our responsibility to determine who is ‘Worthy’ of correction, then it will be worth the time I have spent to say these things.It is written that we must bypass and disengage from people who are unteachable.If we do not ,they will harm us and those around them. We are to protect the sheep,first and foremost.

“He gave them power against unclean spirits,to cast them out,and to heal all manner of sickness and all manner of disease… Jesus sent them forth, and commanded them, saying, Go not (yet) into the way of the gentiles, and into any city of the samaritans enter ye not:But rather go to the lost sheep of the house of Israel, and as you go preach saying, the kingdom of heaven is at hand. Heal the sick cleanse the lepers ,raise the dead,cast out devils…And into whatsoever city or town ye shall enter, inquire in it who is Worthy. . But if they be not worthy let your peace return to you.And whosoever shall not receive you,nor hear your words, when you depart from that house, shake off the dust of your feet (as a testimony against them), Verily I say unto you,it shall be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrha in the day of judgement , than for that city… Matthew 10

THE END TIME CHURCH ” What does she look like?

Israel becomes a nation in 1948- she is 66 years old

The nuclear bomb was developed,as were many others weapons of mass destruction. ( Chemical,biological,super viruses.)

Weather patterns,super storms and signs in the heavens have increased.

Persecution of the Jews and Christians are at an all time high.

The Bible gives us many clues about what the End Time Church will look like,but first we must entertain the idea that we are THE generation. “Verily I say unto you,This generation shall not pass,until all these things be fulfilled” Matthew 24:35

2 Thessalonians Chapter 2 states that we will be under a “strong delusion

Delusion- mental straying; error,wrong opinion relative to morals or religion; error which shows itself in action,a wrong mode of acting; Error, that leads to deceit or fraud.

It also states we will ‘Believe a lie’ instead of the truth, and will have “pleasure in unrighteousness”. (Forsaking that which is right,hereby choosing damnation)

Who then shall be saved?

1. Those who are chosen to salvation through sanctification of the Spirit and belief of the truth’

(2 Thessalonians 2:13) Sanctification- to be consecrated and purified.

The prophet Daniel gives us much information and clues as well ;

2. “And some of them of understanding  shall fall , to try them,and to purge them,and to make them white Daniel 11:35

3.”And such as do wickedly against the covenant shall he corrupt by flatteries:But the people that do know their God shall be strong,and do exploits(Exploits- a bold or daring feat.)

4.” Thou hast a few names (even in Sardis) which have not defiled their garments ; they shall walk with me in white : For they are worthy. Revelation 3:4

5. ” I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried by fire, that thou may be rich: and white raiment,that thou mayest be clothed,and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear” Revelation 3:18

6. ” And he said unto me,these are they which came out of great tribulation,and have washed their robes,and made them white in the blood of the Lamb” Revelation 7:14

I could go on and on with scripture showing us that the elect peoples of God, in the last days are required to get deliverance. Fire is symbolic for the purification of the saints. Fire burns,it hurts, and many people can not take the purging of impurities because they are unwilling to suffer in the flesh.The delusion is so thick that it takes great effort,humility and repentance. It is hard work.

The spirit realm is more active than I have ever seen before. The heavens are full of activity and what takes place in the spirit manifests in the natural.In other words you can take a look at the natural systems ,such as politics, behavioImagers and modalities,and get a good understanding of what is happening spiritually.We also know to watch Israel. God has always used them as a natural compass to show us the spirit realm.We are told scripturally that He shows himself as God and makes himself known through them.

When The Spirit of God moves, no man can stop it,but man can reject it,and even fight against it. Our weapons won’t save us, our science,our knowledge and all of our safe guards will do no good. Only that white garment spoken of by the prophets and Jesus himself will save you from the wrath that is to come.

Deliverance of the Saints from Babylon (the false kingdom) is a gift from our Lord. Through His blood and His great sacrifice,we can  penetrate the vexation and delusion.We can see through it.

Lastly, we can study the parables of Jesus. In Matthew 25 he gives us clues “Then shall the kingdom of heaven be likened unto ten virgins ; which took their lamps and went forth to meet the bridegroom. And 5 of them were wise and 5 of them were foolish…But the wise took the oil in their  vessels with their lamps… And at midnight there was a cry made,BEHOLD,the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. Then the (wise) virgins arose,and trimmed (prepared,put in order,made ready) their lamps. Verses1-13

Study this carefully,because it is a very important warning,The virgins who did not prepare were told by Jesus “Verily I say unto you,I know you not

CONCLUSION- the End time Church will be burdened with the responsibility to allow the Lord to try us,to cleanse us and to deliver us from evil. When the Israelites were called out of Egypt,they endured hardship,long journeys and discomfort. They also enjoyed the physical presence and power of God. Unfortunately many fell because of their jealousy,their complaining and their desire to stay in bondage.Those that fought against God never saw the promised land, in fact God thinned them out through disease and famine until they had all died out.Because they refused His deliverance,they suffered greatly.Out of the hundreds of thousands of chosen people ,only two found favor ( Numbers 14)

My studies and experiences have lead me to believe that the End Time Church will be persecuted (Matthew 24:9) ,they will be smitten and humbled.They will be betrayed by the brethren.( Matthew 24:10) They will be militant with their spiritual weapons (2 Corinthians 10:4). They will be willing to go through the fire and the wilderness (Matthew 3:12, Mark 9:49). They will be instructors of many (Daniel 11:33). They will ,by way of commandment, come out of Babylon (The false system,kingdom).( Revelation 18:4-5)

If you are sitting in a church where there is no power,nor deliverance, I urge you to move away from it.Scripture tells us that the End time Church has “many” False prophets. Beware of them beloveds, and find the living God,seek his delivering power and refute the enemy. We may not have ages left.- ANGIE

THE CASE FOR THE SEER

eyeWE HAVE TALKED ABOUT DEMONS AND THE SPIRIT REALM. The book has an entire chapter (12) discussing the gift of discernment,how all believers have a measure of discernment and the difference in those who have a “gift” of discernment. I believe this is also true for the Seers gift.

All true believers have some form of revelatory vision,but not all are Seers. I want to differentiate the difference between a psychic medium (whom converses with demons masquerading as dead people) and a Seer (whom converses with God,but can also hear the chatter of the demons,and can often see them.) There is an article from the Elijahlist.com that I will reference from. It is discussing the differences between the prophetic anointing of a seer ,and the prophetic anointing of a prophet.

There are distinct differences, the author states, that both are important streams for the “full expression of the Lord’s prophetic word to His people in our day”.
Throughout history ,God has used visions and dreams to communicate with his people. In fact almost all prophetic truth was received this way.
MY PERSONAL STORY:
The first persons to recognize Jesus as the son of God were the demons (Matthew 8:29) and so it was for me and my gift. The first person whom recognised and called me a Seer,was an enemy of the cross,and a demon possessed man,yet he knew what I was even before I understood it had a name. I found an article (referenced above) that describes a seer’s gift, and it fit my life to a T.
There is a distinct difference in a Seer and a Prophet. The article states that all true Seers are Prophets,but not all Prophets are Seers.
The Seer receives revelation and impartation primarily through visual images,dreams and pictures. The root word for Seer is “Chozeh” meaning “To perceive”, and a “beholder in vision”.
The life of a Prophet emphasizes a relationship with God and His people ; the Prophet relays the messages, whereas a Seer percieves the message. Seers tend to spend the majority of there time seeking and speaking to God,much more than with people. They receive vision and guidance for living, warnings and hard truths,and those that follow it are blessed. True Seers often spend so much time in the spirit realm that their families and friends can feel neglected. My friends and family call it “full,tilt,God”. However,we are regular people,it is an office or a function, not a title.
I have been able to spend much time (sometimes weeks ,even months) in the spirit realm,but no one can stay there forever. Shifting from one to the other takes the protection of the Holy Spirit because both realms are antagonistic towards the other.

Seers tend to always be looking heavenward,we know the power of God and His visitations and we often bring that with us in our meetings. Many people who walk with us also begin having spiritual vision and the scriptures come alive and active in their own lives. Many people cannot handle this,so they find fault in me and go back to the dead religious practices and follow error.
My experiences often leave me grieved and saddened; fearful for the church and the brethren. So my assumption is that most Seers battle depression after a season of revelation.

True seers must also stay completely clean in the area of the occult. I have never even had my horoscope read. We must also check everything we see and hear with scripture,knowing full well that there are many voices that speak and imitate the Lord. I have always known that Satan would love to tap into my gift and pervert it.
A Seer knows full well that the spirit realm,both good and evil,are aware of them and they watch us closely. They use people to attack us and send forth unclean spirits to thwart us constantly. I have said that no one in their right mind would choose this calling willingly,if they truly understood the scope of it.
I realize that I am a frustrating leader,because I usually have seasons of ministering very closely with the sheep,and intense seasons where God pulls me away from them and requires me to solely work with Him.
While I was writing this book,I became afraid. I knew the enemy was watching me continuously. The Lord instructed me to go outside. I went into my front yard and turned and faced my home. Over it was a covering, a glowing shield of light covering my property like a tent. I tried to capture it on film,but it did not appear. It took me awhile to understand that it was the protection of The Holy Spirit over me,and my household.
Lastly, I want to plug a book, It is called “In a dream,in a vision of the night’ by Susan Noone Riddle. It is a directory of biblical dream symbols.

Many people who seek God begin to dream,but seem to not understand biblical symbols and actions. The Lord has always used symbols ,and mostly uses the same ones over and over in scripture.
I am praying for more dreamers,visionaries and prophets to emerge.

“In a dream,in a vision of the night,when deep sleep falleth upon man,in slumberings upon the bed; Then he HE OPENS  THE EARS OF MEN,AND SEALS THEIR INSTRUCTION.” JOB 33.

This scripture rings true, If God is speaking to you by way of dreams, he will ‘seal it’ You won’t be able to shake it until the interpretation is revealed. Show your self faithful to Him in this and He will give you more!       Much love – Angie

The case for Spiritual Warfare : who are we battling?

I am often asked and challenged by individuals whom question the concept of spiritual warfare. I want to discuss many things,but in this thread I want to give you a few visual pictures. Let us start with Jesus and his words regarding Satan.“And He said unto them ,I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy” Luke 10:18-19 Jesus is telling them that He witnessed Satan’s fall from heaven, indicating that it had already transpired. He is here, on earth, and He has staked His claim as ‘the god of this world’. Let us fast forward to Revelation chapter 12. John is describing imagery using symbolism : The woman is symbolic for Israel and she is giving birth to a child (Jesus). ”

And she (Israel) being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered. And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads (plural). AND HIS TAIL DREW THE THIRD PART OF THE STARS OF HEAVEN,AND DID CAST THEM TO EARTH: AND THE DRAGON STOOD BEFORE THE WOMAN WHICH WAS READY TO BE DELIVERED,FOR TO DEVOUR HER CHILD AS SOON AS IT WAS BORN.’ REVELATION 12:2-4
The scripture is clear, Satan is not alone. He did not deceive the nations by himself, he has many helpers. If you are reading this, that means you have internet capability. Please Googlelightning-animated-1354.jpg the stars in our solar system and try to number them. There are too many to count. God is showing us the vast number of fallen angels(or stars) that are on this planet. Let’s pick up chapter 12 in verse 7 ” And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels” The question is, What are all these fallen angels doing? They have had more than ample time to strategize and scheme against mankind, In fact Jesus says He rules them.

The next blog I will show you, that God has required his people to partner with Him in this battle. We are the enemies prey. He actively hunts us, overtakes us and destroys us. Man, left to his own devices is absolutely powerless against the Devil. That is why Jesus came. That is why the Devil tried to destroy him ,even before he was born. We must stop blindly refuting the spirit realm. We must accept that we are not alone on earth. We must accept that we have an enemy, a vast army of intelligent beings that have been around since time began. Let us learn how to fight!

The Case for Demons,and what do we do about them?

 

40062While there is much scriptural evidence of demon spirits,and the early church had no problem dealing with them, we learn the most about them by studying the ministry of Jesus. As He moved into his ministry, one of the first things he did (and continued to do) was cast out demons.They seemed to manifest and cry out in the people every where he went. “And His fame went throughout all Syria: and they brought unto him all sick people that were taken with divers diseases and torments,and those which were possessed with devils,and those which were lunatic,and those that had the palsy, and he healed them” Matthew 4:24 “ and when the evening was come,they brought unto Him many that were possessed with devils: and he cast out the spirits with his word,and healed all that were sick” Matthew 8:16

Scripture shows us that sickness and vexations were alleviated when demons were cast out. Demons go by many names; Jesus called them unclean spirits,devils,and foul spirits. He specifically tells us to “cast them out’.

Demons are disembodied spirits that can do very little damage on earth unless they are functioning through human beings.

In Matthew chapter 15 ,Jesus states that deliverance from demons is a gift, the gift of miracles. He calls it the  ‘children’s bread’ ,specifically for those in covenant with Him. The scene in this story shows a Canaanite woman, (not a follower of God) coming to him begging,  “Have mercy on me ,o Lord,thou son of David; my daughter is grievously  vexed with a devil”  , at first Jesus would not answer her cries, saying that He was not sent for those whom had no covenant with God,but the desperate woman continued to pursue Him,scripture says she then came and ” worshipped him”. He says, ” It is not meet (worthy,good) to take the children’s bread,and cast it to dogs.’ The woman kept pleading so He turns to her and proclaims, “O woman,great is thy faith” And scripture says her daughter was “made whole” that very hour.This scripture is very clear to me,deliverance from demons is a gift specifically for those in covenant with The God of Israel.

Unfortunately due to rampant false doctrine; most christians and Especially the American Church, believe they do not need deliverance, when in fact we need it the most!

My personal experience has been this; God has never once prompted me to cast an unclean spirit out of an unrepentant unbeliever! Why are we humble enough to go to the doctors and scientist,saying,I have sickness,I have disease,and then go in the church saying, I am clean, I need no deliverance?

Maybe it’s because we fear peoples judgements. Maybe we think that science will save us. Maybe we are too full of pride to accept that we may have weaknesses,only God knows.

But I will tell you this, Jesus himself would not try to touch the religious and their mindsets, He plainly tells them that their Father is the devil,but he never engaged them in deliverance,in fact He passed by them,and went away from them. He did not waste his time.In Matthew 9 the Pharisees,the religious leaders were following him,as was there practice, to find fault in Him,despite the signs and wonders that He was displaying. Scripture says he “perceived their evil thoughts” ;  While the masses of regular people were were rejoicing and giving glory to God,the “church” and its leaders were mocking God. Jesus turned to them and stated ‘They that be whole need not a physician,but they that are sick. Go ye and learn what that means…” Matthew 9:12 Understand this, He was not saying that they were whole nor clean,He had already told them many times what they were, He was saying that because they were full of pride,believing that they did not need deliverance,that He was not there for them,in fact He shunned them.He took the time to stop and tell them that they were evil,that they were not of his Father,even though they made long prayers and pretended to be,that they made their converts even worse than themselves. ” Woe unto you ,scribes and pharisees,hypocrites! For ye compass sea and land to make one proselyte,and when he is made,you make him TWOFOLD more the child of hell than yourselves.” Matthew 23:15

Now this is scary stuff! I know what you are thinking, Wasn’t the abilities to cast out demons only for the disciples? I can give you many scriptures that tell us that indeed that is not the case,but I will only share one example, ” And John answered him,saying, Master,we saw one casting out devils in thy name, and he does not follow us:and we forbade him,because he does not follow us.(He isn’t in our inner circle,he isn’t a disciple). But Jesus said, Forbid him not: for there is no man which shall do a miracle in my name,that can lightly speak evil of me. For he that is not against us is on our side.” Mark 9:38-39

It is my experience and fervent belief that the last church age will be and already is required to walk in the mighty gifts of the Holy Spirit.We have been given a task ,and part of that means getting clean,sanctified and made white.A good starting point would be to stop right now and pray. Repent to God for denying his power,repent for following the doctrines of men and not God. Once you have asked for forgiveness in this,command the unclean religious spirit of pride to loose you in the name of Jesus! Amen
