“Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you” (Jam 4:7)
We had a wonderful Holy Communion service this morning. Just before taking the Bread and the Wine I shared a testimony with the congregation. Some time ago a young woman from the church (I can’t call her ‘sister’ because she is not born again, just religious) said she wants to see me. She had a dream and saw me lying in a coffin. Most of the people who come to my office they have needs, they need prayer or counsel. But this woman was different. Immediately she told me her dream I felt the doors of my spirit shutting off, just like the emergency trap of a ship that takes water. I knew she was an agent of the devil.
I had just a second to prepare my attitude and my answer. I felt supernaturally calm and strong. I knew that if I keep quiet she will interpret it as weakness. So I said to her: “Do you want the contract to buy my coffin?” I could see her eyes…for few seconds she thought of it…maybe she can make some money out of this… but then she said “No, Ma’…” May the Holy Spirit be in charge of your attitude, reflexes and responses in case of evil attack!
By the Holy Spirit I discerned the demon motivating her. Sure of the truth, I was ready to attack. I lifted the shield of faith with my left hand so my heart is covered… No unnecessary emotions… With the right hand I lifted the Sword of the Spirit which is the Word of God. Looking straight in her eyes and speaking to the demon controlling her I quietly but firmly said: “you are a liar!” Immediately she drew back two steps. She lost her ‘cool’ and started fretting. I said to her: “go now!” She was very happy to run away. This is the truth: If I had allowed the lie to penetrate my spirit even for a second, that could have done damage to me. Lies are spiritual arrows soaked in poison. This is how many get sick with depression, anxiety and many other ailments doctors are not able to treat. Do not allow the devil to have even a foothold in your mind!
We took the Holy Communion and did spiritual warfare. We prayed against the evil spirits of Pharaoh and his magicians; against the spirits of false prophets, witchcraft; intimidation, and the fear of untimely death. We remembered our Lord! He said that we should take the bread and wine in remembrance of Him! We did that. At the name of Jesus every knee will bow! The children of Israel were not better than the Egyptians. But they escaped death during the Passover night because they had faith in God and in His Word. The Blood of the Lamb covered their homes. In the same way the Blood of Jesus covers us today! We reminded ourselves that the victory is sure! Jesus paid it all on the Cross of Calvary! Jesus died so that we may live! Our Lord said: “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven” (Lk 10:18). Satan can never rise! He will fall forever!
Lastly, we started singing: “There is power, power wonder working power in the Blood of the Lamb…”
In Christ I declare:
I am a child of God!
I shall not die but live and declare the works of the Lord! (Ps 118:17)
Let God arise and my enemies be scattered! (Ps 68:1)
My victory is sure!
To the glory of God!
In Jesus name
