Lies of Satan

While more and more people are blindly following the occult and not aware of the dangers of where it is all going to lead them in the end. There are people leaving the occult and warning us of the different types of traps are set up for the innocent to be trapped by. Even toys are designed to darken the souls of the little ones. Some of the traps are obvious to a devout believer in Christ but not all. For example how many people know the peace sign is an occult sign. What about the Christmas trees and all the things that go with Christmas except of course the pure worship and celebration of Jesus Christ birth. Satan will have you believe something is very harmless and just a little fun, but there is an interior motive behind it. I have been trapped in thinking something was harmless, but I was blessed in that I didn’t let my prayer and worship life go, so God was able to warn me. If your pray life and daily worship time is not important, and if you were to give up on it, you are exposing yourselves to serve danger and will become vulnerable. Especially in these days we live in. Satan I think is really enjoying himself in this era, because of how many people he is able to deceive in this present age.

Dangers in Some Churches

Even in Christian activities such as casting out devils in Jesus’s name. You wouldn’t think there could be any possible harm in that. There is black magic even in churches disguised as coming from the Holy Spirit to get you in. Innocent people are not aware of it they are too trusting. Some people are so sweet and innocent they think everybody is like them. If somebody smiles at them they do not doubt they are sincere. They cannot discern the wolf in sheep’s clothing at all and they are many of those running the churches. Now of course there are much more I believe that are genuine it is just you have to do what Jesus tells you. If their deeds don’t match up to their words there is something wrong or if they are constantly watering down the meaning of God’s words they are not Children of God.

Matthew 7:15-18

Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves. By their fruit you will recognize them. Do people pick grapes from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? Likewise, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit.

I think there is another verses that is very important to remember Matthew 7:21-23, because while the Holy Spirit is pouring out His gifts like never before and there is much more to come, Satan too is working hard at deceiving people by imitating God’s Spirit. When the Holy Spirit heals you, you are healed indeed, but if it is the devil at work you might feel good for a little while and then you become worse off than before. Now there are plenty times the Holy Spirit will heal and the sickness comes back, because the person didn’t change their life style to serve the Lord. In other words they are not even making the attempt to live the Holy life that God expects of them. Or they start listening to Satan’s lies when he tells them that they are not really healed or it won’t last long or whatever. When the Holy Spirit heals them it has no bad side-affects, but if it is Satan’s spirit so called healing them, they have just allowed an evil spirit enter in them.

Fighting The Good Fight

I have been learning how to call on Jesus’s name for self-deliverance I think for nearly eighteen months now. On one hand I can see I am growing and getting rid of demons and on the other hand it seems more keep coming back to attack me. We are at war, we must remember that. The thing is as I am learning more without a teacher, because there is no one to be found, I am learning so much more how God has been protecting me over the years and I am so amazed. If Satan is attacking you that is a very good sign, even if you don’t like it, because it means that Satan’s plans are not going to plan, because you are fighting the good fight and are wining through the merits of Jesus Christ. If you are not a danger to his plans he will gladly leave you be, because you are not a threat to him, you are asleep and that is how he likes it.

Matthew 7:21-23

“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord.’ Will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. Many will say to me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name and in your name drive out demons and in your name perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly. ‘I never knew you. Away from me, you evildoers!’

I believe some people will know they are so called casting out evil spirits through black magic, because they are working for the devil, but I also believe some are not aware of it. They think they are great and better than others and that is why they think they have the gifts of the Holy Spirit, which in fact they do not have. And there are others who have been blessed with the gifts of the Holy Spirit, but are not humble about it and do it for their glory and not God’s. I am not a person who is an expert on this subject, but it is what I have seen and heard others speak about. So I take note.

We All Have Demons to Fight

I remember I belonged to a prayer group and we had a meeting. There was priest that came and he was truly what you would refer to as a lamb of God, he was so meek and gentle. One day he walked into the room and it was like a great wind came into the room. It reminded me of the description of when the Holy Spirit came upon the disciples at Pentecostal day. His eyes looked like they were on fire and it scared my demons like you wouldn’t believe. They wanted me to run out of the building and I wouldn’t, because I said to myself this house is the house of God and I belong here. Now people are probably scratching their heads and asking themselves what is a Christian doing having demons. You will be surprised to know how many demons are out there and how many Christians are suffering from them through things like being cursed by others, who keeps judging them or generational curses or the times or when we cursed ourselves or when the people of the occult deliberately curse us or when we have committed sins and we all have done that.

If people knew what we are fighting against, they would be horrified if it wasn’t for the knowledge the one in us is stronger than the one in the world. I would have died in the few minuets I was born, but thanks to a doctor that would have been in danger of being sued today. I was born asleep and I wouldn’t breathe, and in desperation after doing everything possible time was running out, he threw me up in the air and I fell and landed on the mattress and took my first breath that way. God is always been keeping me alive against all the odds. I am amazed how God has always stepped in and looked after me, so would you if you stopped and looked back at your life and start counting how many times God has come to your rescue. So start praying to be ready when Jesus comes for His church we don’t want to be left behind. Get your house in order while you still have time.

Try This You Might Be Surprised of The Results

is(14)This is just an idea, I got the idea to declare the word of God by somebody on Sid Roth’s show, but I changed it a little and you will probably prefer to use different names of God or different verses from the bible, it is really more important that you use what is meaningful to you. I will write some names of God just to start with. As an example I have used these six names of God and in this case we use all six names of God declaring the same affirmation.

God of the Armies of Israel. … Remember Christians are called the spiritual Israel.

Prince of Peace

God My Shepherd

The Lion out of the Tribe of Judah

God the Resurrection and the Life

The Author of Life

 

So you have got the idea, just choose any names that belongs to God that affects your heart most strongly. I have just done an example for you below. You can use this method for so many things.

Examples

I Declare the God of the Armies of Israel to serve you accordingly to your holy Will in all areas of my life.

I Declare the Prince of Peace to serve you accordingly to your holy Will in all areas of my life.

I Declare God My shepherd to serve you according to your holy Will in all areas of my life.

I Declare the Lion out of the Tribe of Judah to serve you according to Your Holy Will in all areas of my life.

I Declare God the Resurrection and the Life to serve you according to Your Holy Will in all areas of my life.

I Declare the Author of Life to serve you according to You Holy Will in all areas of my life.

You can use any affirmation you want and need to; like healing, deliverance etc. Or even Declaring for something you need to day, like a parcel of the post office to arrive soon. Anything at all.

Another example to give you more confidence say in healing.

I Declare the God of the Armies of Israel that I am healed and delivered of ….

I Declare the Prince of Peace that I am healed and delivered of ….

I Declare the God My shepherd that I am healed and delivered of …..

I Declare the Lion out of the Tribe of Judah that I am healed and delivered of ….

I Declare God the Resurrection and the Life that I am healed and delivered of ….

I Declare the Author of Life that I am healed and delivered of ….

I think you now have a very good idea of what I mean. I just like to be thorough. Something I did one night and it seems to be even more powerful for healing.

They say we have two main demons you have to get rid of first and then all the other demons are a lot easier to get out. One demon is low self-esteem and the other is insecurity. All other demons apparently are attached to one or the other of these demons.

Instead of a name of God you may use a verse in the bible that is real meaningful to you and it strengthens you when you say it. I used this verse

The Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliver; my God, my  strength, in whom I will trust; my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold.

Here is an example

I Declare that I am no longer afraid to speak my mind to anybody, because the Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliver; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold – is with me.

Another example

I Declare that I am now ready to fulfil my destiny in God, because the Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliver; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold – is with me.

I Declare that I am healed of neck pain because the Lord is my rock and my fortress and my deliver; my God, my strength, in whom I will trust; my shield and the horn of my salvation, my stronghold –  is with me.

I have written down 20 names of God sometimes, for things that I am declaring God will do for me. After I do it many times I start to feel the Holy Spirit in me and I know something is up and then after a while I start crying and I know God is healing me. You say it out loud not from your head, but from your heart and you have to be humble and acknowledge your nothingness before God. Once I was doing it and I was crying because He was healing me and then I thought this would make a good article and straight away the healing stopped. So the next day when I did it again and God was healing me, I kept very humble and the healing lasted a long period of time. God is healing me of emotional pain at the moment and He is casting out a lot of demons. Some people are very lucky and get healed overnight, but not for me. I think God is using this healing process to teach me a lot about myself, that I need to change. I have given this form to another person and she said she hadn’t cried for years and years and when she did this, she cried like a baby. Sometimes you suffer so deeply you can’t cry anymore and as we all know a good cry releases us of all sorts of trauma’s we go through or have gone through in the past.

 

 

There Are Many Members but, We Are All Members of Christ

We would think it very strange is somebody was trying to use their foot as if it is an eye right? But that is what we are trying to do every time we try to be like somebody else. God is a very generous God and we all have work to accomplish in His Kingdom. We all can’t be carpenters for example. Somebody has to grow our food, help out in different emergencies, raise children, clean houses and etc. Can you imagine if we all had the same job to do, everything would fall apart!

Everybody Has Different Gifts

What has confused me over the years is when people receive a gift from God, they have such easy access to it and they presume it should be like that way to all Christians. My very first experience of it, I had a friend who was very gifted as a seer. She would ask Jesus a question and He spoke to her straight away. So if we asked her a question, she would say why don’t you ask God? And we would look at one another and respond to her and say, ‘because we do not have that gift.’ And then in my search for miraculous healing from God, it very rarely came spontaneously. I seemed to have more access to get rid of evil spirits associated with stress and spirits that tempt you strongly in all sorts of areas such as rebellion in me. God has not called me to do this with other people, but he has given me the gift to teach others how to do this for themselves. So I am finally learning that if God wants you to work in a certain area, He will give you the gifts that you will need in that area. It is no point for God to give you the gift of healing if He wants you to expressively work in deliverance as an example.

We Are Specially Be Called

I remember reading a person who had a very powerful ministry in healing cancer. It was a full time job just to pray over people with cancer. He was a very busy man. The thing was he himself was suffering from cancer and God didn’t heal him of it. The man was humble enough to realise it is was in God’s hands not his. Another thing I read about was Saint Peter the disciple and apostle of Jesus Christ, was such a powerful healer. According to a book I read ‘the twelve disciples’ St. Peter’s shadow would heal people. Apparently St. Peter had an only daughter who was crippled, that he was not able to heal. I think God does that for our protection, so that it won’t go to our heads and we start to think it is ourselves that is healing people.

Look at doctors, you will have the general practitioner and then you have many different specialist, concentrating on a specific thing. They are all necessary to help people, but they are all in different areas of healing. When I finally realize that, it calm me down. And like, 1 Corinthians 12. 1-31 points this out very well.

1 Corinthians 12. 29-30. Are all apostles? Are all prophets? Are all teachers? Do all work miracles? Do all have gifts of healing? Do all speak in tongues? Do all interpret?

We All Have Special Work To Do

Now I know we are all called to work for the Kingdom of God. So if we are faithful to Him we will all have spiritual gifts now or are waiting for us to receive. When I was young I read the different Catholic Saints, they would have all these spiritual gifts like miraculous and creative healing and etc. And they all practised self-denial, which Jesus tells us to do and then pick up our cross daily and follow Him. When I was young I followed the advice and some examples of the saints. After approximately thirty years, I didn’t have these gifts and I was angry and hurt with God for not giving them to me. About a couple of months later I started to realise I didn’t have those gifts, but I was receiving a gift in wisdom and I was comforted. It wasn’t the gift I was searching for, but I realise it was a good gift from God. I was very honoured that God would give it to me. In other words I realised I did nothing to deserve it. And I knew I would not be able to explain to people that we all need wisdom and it is a very good gift from God to have. People want the spectacular things such as the miraculous including me.

1 Corinthians 12. 22-23. On the contrary, those parts of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable, and the parts that we think are less honourable we treat with special honour.

Don’t Compare Yourself With Another

So we need not complain about our gifts from God. They are the right ones for us. God also knows what we can handle. As life goes on it may take a different direction and we may then receive different gifts from what we are used to, but our gifts will come at the right time, if we are sincerely follow Jesus as He is calling us to do. Don’t measure yourself with other people, they are not you and they do not have the same gifts as you do or if they do they do not have them in the same way as you do. No two people are alike and we should not be intimidated by other people’s giftedness. God does not love one person more than another.

 

 

Deliverance

After I was converted in understanding the power of prayer, that you really can save souls by means of prayer. That there are sowers and reapers in God’s Kingdom. That we all have different callings from one another, and that the ministry of full time intercession prayer is a very important and a necessary calling, I started to get attack by demons on a regular basis. I would be attacked at least twice a week. My body would go paralysed and I found very early in the peace that I could not shout out for help. So I quickly learnt that I had to pray to be free of the demons that attack me. It was just me and God, there was no one else to help me.is(7)

Demons will try to Stop You from Your Calling

These demons believe in the power of prayer more than we do, because they see the results of our prayers and of course they do not want souls to be saved. The demons were attacking me, because they were desperately trying to stop me from fulfilling my calling, which I refuse to give up, because I knew I was making a difference by doing the will of God. My very first experience of being attack by a demon was so fierce that I knew intuitively that the name of Jesus was too long. I knew I could only use a word with one syllable in it. God really comes to our aid when we turn to Him with such urgency and knowledge that He is the only one that can help us. The perfect word came to me which was God’s doing and I called out to God in my mind ‘God, God ,God.” Very quickly and I mustered up all my faith and gave it to Him.

The demon was a very powerful one and to my complete surprise it vanished that fast, I believe it went as quickly as a blink of an eye. I was fighting with all my strength with a demon that was no longer there. After a little while it dawned on me that it was not there, because it went so quickly, I could not believe it had gone, so I went looking for it. I looked under my bed, it was not there, as I was going to open my wardrobe a thought came to me, I know it was God talking to me, He said ‘and once you have found the demon do you want another fight on your hands?’ Then I realised what I was doing and I said ‘no, if it is in the closet it can stay there.’

Helping Somebody to Fight their Demon

All this is leading up to another experience I had that might help somebody. I do not want to enclose the person it involves. This person just received the gift of prophesy and some other gifts. So she was new at it. She was conned by a demon thinking it was a good spirit, so she let it in, then found quickly it was a very powerful demon. Things happen when you least expect it. I was in the next room, and in she walks, you do not need somebody to tell you if a person is possessed by a demon or not. Their eyes speaks for itself. She told me that God said for her to come to me. And then I said to God ‘I do not know the first thing about helping somebody to be delivered from a demon.’  All I could think to do was to grab my rosary beads and then told her we will go to the next room where another Christian women was sleeping, as we walked in she had one look at her and knew she was possessed by a demon too. She picked up her rosary beads and we started to say the rosary over her.

Rosary is a Powerful Prayer

Half way through the rosary we looked at her and her eyes were calm again, we still knew the demon was there, but the young women was calm. She was a Protestant and she said that while we were saying the rosary she felt that it was very important that Mary was to be blessed. Now she said it not me. Then I had to give her some knowledge on how to help her to deliver herself from that demon. I only had that one demon attack that I mention at that time, so I had very little knowledge, but I had to give her what knowledge I had, because she did not have any knowledge at all.

I said to her ‘you will have to find out where your faith is strongest,’ I knew how she felt, she gave me a look as to say where am I going to find that out. And then I said to her ‘believe me you will find it.’ I gave her some suggestions. I said some people, the crown of thorns will be where their faith is strongest, with others it will be the blood of Jesus or maybe it is holy water, whatever it is put your whole faith into it and give it to God. She intuitively knew she had to face her room by herself and face the demon within her. She knew if she was too afraid to do that the demon will give her no peace at all whether she went.

Faith moves Mountains

Now her faith worked this way she said to the demon over and over again that you are only a little soldier Jesus is a big soldier. She told us later that the demon that was in her got angrier and angrier, but at the same time he got weaker and weaker and then eventually left. Some Christians wrongly believe that Christians cannot be possessed by demons if we are born again Christians. It is our spirit that cannot be possessed by demons, if you are a born again Christian. Our will, our emotions and our flesh can. People do not have to be a bad person to be troubled by demons. All you need to do to be possessed is to be deceived by demons. They are sneaky and clever and can easily do this if you do not know how to defend yourself in the name of Jesus. Or you live contrary to what Jesus has taught us and we all have been guilty of that. I have recently read some books on deliverance just in case something similar happens to me again.

Results of Curses

I believe a great many sickness are caused through demons, people often pray for healing and in some cases it does not happen, because you may have to have a demon removed first. I am now going through a slow process of self- deliverance now. As my faith grows stronger demons and evil spirits are leaving. Tragedies and long term grief can open you up to demons as well. So it is not necessary always our fault. There are generational curses and people are cursing you every time they think ill of you and you likewise.  When you are judging one another or even the spoken word like gossiping etc. brings evil onto them.  And remember curses that you have sent out returns to you seven times more. Jesus said ‘you will be judge as you judge others.’ Love is the only way around it. Love heals and God is a God who heals.

 

God is with Us Always Especially during Our Toughest Times

isI2TNE013I love reading peoples testimonies, especially how they survive their toughest times, because while we are here on this earth, we can guarantee we will have plenty of them. Where hatred is growing at an insane rate, we need survival skills in the Lord. Our life should not be the most important thing to us. Getting to heaven where our real home is, is far more exciting and something to really look forward to with so much joy. If that is not true for you, then you need to ask God urgently to make it so, especially in these days. The only real reason for living is serving and pleasing God. If God is your all in all it is because you are living in His presence. And you know you can be living in His presence and not know it! Maybe you are expecting to be in a state of continue excitement all the time. There is a time to cry and a time to laugh. Despite of what is going on around you, if you are living in His presence there is a supernatural peace that can only come from a loving and personal relationship with God. God wants everybody to have this relationship with Him.

Intimate Relationships Grow Deeper And Deeper

Intimate relationships grow over a period of time and is always becoming deeper and deeper as people work on it. Some relationships grow more intimate and trustworthy quicker than others. God gives you plenty of examples on earth for us to look around to see how relationships work. The bible of course clearly explains how we are to treat one another. So if we look close, God is saying love comes from me. If somebody loves you it is because I have given that person the Spirit of My Love, so it can manifest for you. I have never been married or had children, but I have pets and they teach me so much about God’s love for me. I have just come in from outside, praising God because of His beautiful clouds. I said to Him you’re my daddy who makes such beautiful clouds and I am more important to you and more beautiful to you, than those beautiful clouds. When you communicate to God with love it always grows and you feel closer to God, because He always responds to you by giving His joy to you. That is a way you have a loving and intimate relationship, your attention is completely on the other person with love, and the same rules apply in having a real relationship with God.

We Do not Suffer on Our Own

I got off the track but I felt it was where I was meant to go. I heard a testimony years and years ago, where a man was stabbed about seventeen times and towards the end of it he was asked if he wanted to live or die by the Holy Spirit. He had a three year old son at the time and he wanted to stay for him and look after him, so he chose to live. He said whenever he hears of a horrific murder like that he is so confident that the person is not going through it alone. Fairly recently I heard from a person who was told by Jesus that sometimes Jesus will take on the suffering on behalf of the person, because they are too weak to go through it.

Jesus is Always True to His Word

It actually brought back a memory of mine when I was converted about the power of prayer and how necessary it is to pray for the salvation of the world besides your family needs. I use to get demons attack very often to stop me from answering my calling, which I refused. This particular day this demon was punching me in my back and it of course really hurt and I for some reason sang out to Jesus in my head that would he take the punches for me. I was so surprise because in an instant Jesus did take my place. I knew the demon was punching my back, because I could feel some pressure but not pain.  I felt instantly ashamed of myself, because I then felt sorry for Jesus. Then the demon attack was over. I forgot all about it until I heard about what this women was told from Jesus about what happens to some martyrs.

I wouldn’t clap my hands and think that the majority don’t feel the pain of martyrdom, but I know if they are rely on Jesus strength and not on their own, things will work out in the end. They will have a great reward waiting for them that nobody will ever be able to take it away from them.

God is Pouring His Spirit out like Never Before.

We all need help to discern sometimes whether a vision or a visitation is from God, and if you are on your own, you can only pray about it and check it out if it agrees with the bible. My mother once complained to God that she wanted a perfect spiritual director to guide her and Jesus appeared to her and said ‘Aren’t I am enough.’ She grudgingly accepted it and then two months down the track she complained to God again and Jesus appeared a second time and said ‘you can if you want, but it is going to be useless.’ So she thought if it is going to be useless why bother. Now a great many people are going to complain for starters and say that was not from the Lord. The thing is we are all individual and God knows the best path for you and what He wants to accomplish in you.

Self-taught

I personally believe that in many ways my generation had to be self-taught in this area, since it wasn’t sociable acceptable amongst Christians to have supernatural gifts, especially speaking openly about it. I know there have always been people that God has used in a big way for many people to be healed, prophesy to etc. they are the lucky ones. Most of us were hushed up. What I am trying to say is what took my generation a lifetime to learn, this generation coming up will only take a very little time to learn if they are genuinely interested in walking with God, because they have a great many more teachers out there now. And also I believe the countless martyrs that have been put to death and still are being put to death for their belief in Jesus is not wasted. Because I believe God is rewarding the martyrs sacrifice in union with Jesus sacrifice on the cross, by releasing greater graces for the world to come to know Jesus and being filled with the gifts of the Holy Spirit in a most powerful way.

We are Called to be Co-Redeemers

It is a Catholic belief not shared by most Protestants. Protestants will say there is only one Redeemer and Jesus paid it all and that is that. What Catholics believe is all Christians are to follow Jesus all the way to Calvary, which means we are called to help save the world and one way to do that is to suffer as Jesus suffered. Now this is the tricky bit I find hard to explain, other people do a better job than I do but here goes. Jesus is the one only Redeemer. If Jesus didn’t pay for our sins all our efforts trying to help Jesus, save souls would be completely useless that includes evangelising. You can evangelise to someone all you like, but if you not backed up by grace you can forget it, you can’t save your own soul never alone somebody else’s.

God likes to work through His people. He doesn’t need anybody to help. It is just God’s way, He loves us to join in. It reminds me of the time when I was a small child. My mother would say ‘let’s make a cake.’ My mother did everything, got the bowl out, put all the ingredients in, stirred the cake mixture and then she would hand me over the wooden spoon, I would stirred it a couple of times and then she would put the cake mixture in the oven. Now far as I was concern I helped made the cake and my mother encourage me to think so. Our Heavenly Father is far more loving towards us than any parent on earth. He loves us to join in and do our little bit even though it is totally unnecessary.

God Rewards Christian Martyrs

Martyrs sacrifice their life for God, there is no sacrifice greater than that. So surely it stands to reason that God is going to reward them in very majestic manner. He is going to reward them more than any other person serving Him. When we pray we pray that God will spread His healing grace or saving grace on people all over the world and think nothing strange about it. What a great many people don’t seem to understand our whole life if lived for God is a prayer. God will reward you for living in union with Him. You live in union with Him when you let Jesus have His way with you.

I just believe that Christians Martyrs have made way for grace to spread throughout the whole world. I believe many conversion are taking place, because God has accepted their sacrifice so much so that He is rewarding them of souls being saved in a very powerful way. I believe when we make any kind of sacrifice and give it to God in union with Jesus suffering out of love and humility God always rewards us as if it was Jesus who made that sacrifice.

When Satan is Mad at You

I remember once I was singing a song of praise and the person on the cd that I was playing said something like ‘I thank you Satan for giving me that mountain.’ I repeated it and added ‘because it made me come closer to you Jesus.’ Sometimes unexpectedly Jesus will respond to something that I have said to Him. In this instance I saw His pleasure that I realised after every mountain I climb for the Lord, I become that much closer to Him.

Just recently I have been clearing out all my excess gear in my place and giving it away. I collect books like no bodies business. So I parted with many of them. There were some books I was going to give to the library down town. Later on I thought that even though I personally see no wrong in these books, I felt it might lead some people astray, if their faith was not grounded in Jesus. These text books of course cost a fortune and I hate throwing away good money. I just didn’t feel comfortable to give it to the library so I thought I will throw them all in the garbage bin. Now as I was walking away I nearly tripped and I thought Satan is not happy about my decision.

Later on the day after I had thrown them away, I was having problems seeing through my eyes. Satan has done this before. Last time I called on the name of Jesus quite a few times and then I said ‘I command in the Name of Jesus my eyes now will be able to see even better than they ever have seen before.’ I saw Jesus smiled at me. And I knew my eyesight turned back to normal instantly, not because I had the faith but because I tried to stretched my faith even further, and Jesus was pleased with my attempt.

The second time Satan tried it, I thought to myself this time I am going to bless some water and ask Jesus to unite it with His Living Water and flush my eye with it. Remember we are supposed to have childlike faith. Children would have no problems believing in this, only old stuffy adults do. The old man in us must die if we are to follow Jesus. Anyhow while I was blessing the water my eyes sight was improving and when I flushed them with the water, my eyes were completely restored to normal. Then I thought of that song, when I said to Jesus ‘thank you for the mountain, because it brings me closer to You.’ Satan doesn’t leave us alone, so in one way we should be glad. Satan is forcing us to grow. We can’t afford to be complacent while Satan is around trying to ruin everything we do for God and steal away our hope, faith and love for Jesus which is our birth right.

The more we are going in the right direction the more Satan will try to wear us down, so that we give up. I remember when I was young I met this young man who had the gift of faith healing and because Satan was fighting him so hard he didn’t heal anybody in Jesus’s name after that. At that time I had many attacks from demons, because I found out how powerful intercessory prayer was. I kept praying regardless of the attacks and found that not only my faith grew, I learnt a few useful things about the enemy. When the demons stopped fighting me, I then got worried.  If Satan is attacking, it usually means to me you are doing something wonderful in God’s Kingdom and Satan is getting into a panic.
