This is Rev. Steve and Melinda Scroggs
Welcome to our home on the web. From wherever you are around the world or just down the street, we’re glad you stopped by. Feel free to look around and make yourself at home. What’s ours is yours. We are looking forward to meeting you one day. If not here, in our eternal home.
Like life…we’re still under construction. Thank for your patience while we put things on the website to help you and your friends.
Please remember, God has good thoughts toward you. He believes in you and we believe in you. You are the joy that motivated him to send his Son into the world. He has never had an evil thought toward you, because he has your best interest at heart. The prophet Jeremiah speaks clearly about God’s heart toward you:
“I know the plans that I have for you, declares the LORD. They are plans for peace and not disaster, plans to give you a future filled with hope. Then you will call to me. You will come and pray to me, and I will hear you. When you look for me, you will find me. When you wholeheartedly seek me, I will let you find me, declares the LORD. I will bring you back from captivity.” (Jeremiah 29:11-13) The eternal loving God is saying that his plans for you are filled with hope. So, be kind to yourself.
Hope lives in the heart and is released in music.
Let your heart be filled with hope. There is no such thing as false hope. Why? Because hope is eternal. When you believe in hope you exercise an eternal power. However, a challenge will rise up against hope.
When God inserted you into creation, and right into the middle of the most fantastic adventure story ever imagined, you received the physical limitation of a human perspective. The way you think about things will try choke the eternal power of hope, and leave you a beggar. This is what the Apostle Paul was talking about in Corinthians:
“When I was a child, I spoke like a child, thought like a child, and reasoned like a child. When I became an adult, I no longer used childish ways. Now we see a blurred image in a mirror. Then we will see very clearly. Now my knowledge is incomplete. Then I will have complete knowledge as God has complete knowledge of me. So these three things remain: faith, hope, and love. But the best one of these is love. (1 Corinthians 13:11-13)
Hope is the confident expectation that a promise given will be fulfilled! When I was a child, I did not see hope as eternal but connected to temporary things, and therefore hope appeared temporary. As a child, I could only see hope in blurred images. Like when my father promised to take me fishing, and for a week I looked forward to that promise. When that day came the hope ended because it was fulfilled. The hope that sustains the human heart is the same. When you choose to believe in Jesus Christ and receive his promises, you receive an eternal promise that will be fulfilled both here and in heaven. This promise is out of this world. With this understanding I grew up and my knowledge was made complete in God.
Yes… you can have bucket loads of hope. In fact, we want you to receive hope everyday of your life. We want you to have so much hope, that you will give it away like candy. So, believe his promises and walk with him. He is eternal hope and he is with you.
God bless you with peace and much love.

HOW DEEP CAN SOZOLIFE GO?
One day a lady came in for a Sozo. She was working through some very strong performance issues, which drove her to outperform everyone: in the family, at work, at church, and even put her in competition with herself. She was pushing herself beyond normal limits at work, even though her boss was not leveraging her for more production.
She thought these often unrealistic expectations were coming from her driven Type A personality. But her desire to succeed was causing some very serious marital and parental problems at home. No one could measure up to her level of performance and her unrealistic demands. She was so driven, that when she came for help she admitted that she could not see herself having the strength to sustain the same level of performance indefinitely. So, she was serious about being in a place for help.
I spent a few minutes introducing her to the Sozolife process and activating the eyes of her heart. Then we prayed together and started. Since she was a no nonsense type A personality, we stepped right into the process. After she stated her issue in her own words I said, “Can we start with a question for God? I believe he speaks to his children and he will talk to you.”
She responded articulately, “Alright, what should I do?”
I said, “This will be a repeat after me question, and as you speak it let your heart ask the Holy Spirit this question. ‘Holy Spirit of truth, will you please show me where this drive to perform is coming from?’” She repeated the question and we waited for Holy Spirit to answer.
In just a few moments she felt a small constriction around her shoulders and sensed darkness all around her. At first this was a little unsettling. Then we asked another question: “Holy Spirit of truth, do you want to show me where I am and how this experience formed this issue in me?”
She said, “Oh… I am in my mother’s womb. Now I am hearing a conversation between my mother and father. I think they are in the kitchen eating supper.” Her mother had just found out that she was pregnant with her, and she could sense the apprehension in her mother’s voice as she was telling her father.
“I am pregnant.” Then she explained a sense that began to build in her through what seemed like an unusually long period of silence, and then her father responded.
“I thought you were on the pill.”
“I was, but one got through.” She could feel the tension inside her begin to grow exponentially. She began to feel an uncertainty of her future. Then she heard her father.
“I don’t know if we can afford to have a baby right now. This is going to put so much pressure on us financially. I may have to go out and get another job.”
“What are you saying…?” her mom said. The discussion escalated. Then her father offered another solution.
“Or… maybe you should go out and get a job. I don’t know if I can do anymore.”
As she was hearing her father and mother’s discussion, her soul was processing even as an unborn child. The Holy Spirit opened up the process and the experience of this memory. When God gives the soul, it does not have to grow up. Although she was not able to process this consciously and intellectually, she was hearing, sensing, and feeling in the present, through the Holy Spirit, a deep sense of frustration coming up in her heart.
I responded to the facial changes with this question. “What are you feeling? If the feelings coming up from deep inside you could speak what would they say?”
We sat for a few moments so that she could find the words to describe what these intense feelings would say. “I am hurt and rejected because my father does not want me. I am angry. I cannot trust him.”
There was such a mix of emotions and anxious rumbling that it shook her to the very core. She interpreted her father words as saying, “I do not want this child. It is going to cost me too much. It is going to be a burden.” Then she felt a surge of power within her that communicated a very overwhelming and defensive sense of defiance that she communicated to me with these words.
“I will have to show him that I am worthy of life. I will have to prove that my life has value and that I have a right to live.” This was her private interpretation of this conversation.
Her parents would not have wanted their child to live under this kind of pressure; if they would have known what was happening to her. Furthermore, her parents were not responsible for her decision. She made a decision in her heart, and then made a personal vow that she would prove her value and substantiate her right to live.
She was active in the womb, and even before she was born she was discontented with the status-qua and had “busyness” about her personality. Her parents said she had been a high level performer all of her life.
Although her soul did not consciously remember her parent’s conversation, or consciously remember making these vows, her life experience revealed the results of the decisions and vows. She lived to prove her right to live.
When the root was revealed, confessions in prayer and proclamation were required to reset the foundations of the belief system, and bring them into agreement with God and his Word.
The next step in the ministry to this woman was to confess the sin of idolatry, the self-god syndrome that declared her own power to change the perception of her worth and value. Then dismantle the self-made belief system that brought her into agreement with, “I will prove that I have value and that I have a right live.” This is what this ministry looked like.
I said, “Will you please repeat these confessions and proclamations after me phrase-by-phrase and word-for-word? And as you confess these, will you let your heart come into agreement with God’s word and design?”
The tears began to flow as she responded with a sigh of relief, and began to turn her life over to God’s design and power…”Yes, I would love to…!”
“Now, repeat this prayer after me phrase-by-phrase from your heart, ‘Lord God, in Jesus name, I confess the sin of Idolatry… I confess the sin of breaking the first five commandments, when I made this vow, ‘I will prove my value and prove that I have a right to live…’ I break agreement with these words and command them to fall to the ground right now in Jesus name… I break agreement with a lie that says, ‘My value is established in my performance …and I come into agreement with the truth that says, ‘My value is set in my creator’s love for me and by him giving his own son Jesus to redeem me.’ (Romans 5:8) ‘I agree that I could do nothing to earn this, but I can only receive as a gift what my eternal Father has given me.’ (John 3:16) ‘Lord God, will you please bring the eternal blood of Jesus and cleanse my body soul and spirit from each of these sins and each of the sins that I chose through my life because I believed these lies? (1 John 1:7) Lord God, I confess that you alone the God of my life and heart. (Philippians 2:11) I bow before you as the only Lord of my life, (Romans 14:11) in Jesus’ name.’” I paused to give her some time to process, and then I asked her.
“How does that feel?”
She responded cautiously but decisively, as if she was walking into a new territory that she had not traveled before. “I feel like a thousand pounds has been lifted off of my neck…”
I said, “Praise the Lord, but we are not done yet. Will you continue with me?”
Then we continued with the following repeat after me prayers and confessions. “I break agreement with a lie that says, ‘I have to prove that I have a right to live…’ and I come into agreement with the truth that says, ‘My eternal father chose me in Christ before the foundations of the world…’ (Ephesians 1:4) ‘My Father chose me before the foundations of the world…’ say the truth again, ‘I am chosen and therefore have a right to live because he sent me here.’ (Acts 17:26-28) (I left these scriptures in because I use the references as much as I can because it adds the authority of God’s word.)
Then I said, “Now, how does that settle in your heart?”
“It’s like… I can still feel stuff breaking off of me… almost like it is coming off in layers. Can we keep going?”
“Hey… that’s what I am supposed to say.” We laughed and kept our focus in this vein of repentance and confession as Holy Spirit led the restoring of her foundations into truth.
“Ok, let’s go here now… can you be there where you were hearing the conversation by your parents…”
A few moments passed and she said, “I am there.”
Now confess this and give this to your parents, “Dad and mom, I forgive you for causing me to believe that you did not want me. I forgive you for questioning the value of my life. I forgive you for not speaking treasured thoughts about me from my conception… ‘And Lord, I repent for judging my parents as not wanting me. And I speak blessings on them right now in Jesus’ name.”
There were other issues that we dealt with in this ministry time, but the root of this issue came from the choice she made in her soul, before she was born. This speaks to either a genetic memory and\or the eternal soul that is aware and already stamped with a paradigm that comes at conception. The older we are when the Lord reveals truth to us, the farther or deeper the influence of this belief system will have on our present day attitude and action.
For this lady, as you can imagine, there were also complications in the relationship with her father. The father establishes your identity, inclusion and inheritance. But she had set her identity in her ability to prove her value and validation. Every time she was complimented she felt vindicated in her right to exist, which caused her to work even harder. When she was corrected, her value in performance took a hit and she was broken. But this also compelled her to work harder. This was unusually frustrating because she was feeling attacked if she did perform and attacked if she didn’t perform. She could not win. What she needed was transformation… to know the truth and the truth to set her free.
Her belief system needed to be reset. The proof of value will come from her performance. This was so deep that it took the Holy Spirit coming in to reveal this lie. The lie for her was wrapped around her definition of value. Her father’s compliment for a job well done, in her heart, was not connected to his love for her but to the value she needed to feel to prove the value of her existence.
The promise of divine help was foreign to her. The divine connection between the soul and body, and between the spirit and soul that brings the light of God’s wisdom into our heart is usually activated when we come to the end of ourselves, and we ask God for his help. This shows us that the human, left to self, will give the credit for God-given design to other instinctual programming.
Now we have received, not the spirit of the world, but the spirit which is of God; that we might know the things that are freely given to us of God. Which things also we speak, not in the words which man’s wisdom teaches, but which the Holy Ghost teaches; comparing spiritual things with spiritual.
Only God knows the places we go in our hearts that drive our decisions. He alone knows how to convict and bring the truth to us. He created the soul for his eternal purpose. Our eternal Father loves and enters our life every day. We will never be outside of his love.
You are chosen and God has never had a bad thought toward you. He celebrates every day with you as if were your birthday all over again!
What is your story? Please make a comment on how this article influenced you.
Blessings, and walk free!
Have you ever been rejected? What do you remember about that experience? Rejection is a very subjective word. The opposite to rejection is acceptance. As humans we lean more toward the negative than the positive. We lean more toward believing that we deserve all the bad we get, than believing that the bad must be over come and good received. We tend to believe that God is mad at us and wants to destroy us. But nothing could be farther from the truth. Although people may have different opinions about you that are not true (they are just someone’s thoughts and opinions), God’s desire is for you not against you. Have you ever felt like everyone was against you? Have you ever thought that you were made a screw-up? Well, I have good news for you. That is a lie! God does not make junk! He loves you and knitted you together in your mother’s womb. (Psalm 139) Think about it…why do you believe that you are rejected? Did someone tell you that? The negative thoughts and beliefs are the seeds of darkness and depression. IT IS TIME FOR YOU TO BELIEVE THE TRUTH!!!
In the fall of 2007, an amazing lady came in for a Sozo. She was a survivor. As a forty-something year old, he r life had been a tedious and wearisome journey. She had spent the last 15 years of her life in a bed of hopeless depression, and according those closest to her she was in bed 16 to 18 hours a day. She had received pastoral counseling, psychiatry that included chemical therapy, as well as loving help from her husband, without a breakthrough. They had spent hundreds of thousands of dollars trying to find a solution for her condition. Even though she was a believer, the darkness from her childhood held her captive. The only time she left her confines was to attend church and tend to critical family matters.
Despite the huge investment spent on therapy, psychiatrists, and medications, life did not hold much interest for her. As she would go to church every week the darkness dissipated in the atmosphere of praise and worship that gave moments of hope. Except for these few hours a week; she would lay in bed – in darkness – uninterested in doing anything but blocking out those horrible memories that kept attacking her mind. She came to the conclusion that her destiny was to live in the utter darkness of rejection and help other people get out.
After one of her sisters told her about Sozo, the process of the Holy Spirit to restore the soul by a prophetic prayer ministry team, she agreed to sign up for a session. In her mind, this would be another dead end, another disappointment, another empty rabbit hole. “What do I have to lose,” she thought; “nothing else has worked.” She went just to appease her sister. It seemed like a long shot, but she made a trip to Asheville, North Carolina to try this “new thing,” called Sozo from Pastor Steve at Mountain Vintage Fellowship.
Her childhood memories were a patchwork of torn fabric from an abusive father, who emotionally, verbally and sexually abused her. Many of her problems stemmed from this dreary beginning in her life. Even God seemed to be far away. Her heart was so broken that her communication and lifelines to God did not seem to work.
Sozo is a process that can heal those broken lines of communication between God and his children. The result is safety acquired through an eternal perspective, peace achieved through resolved inner conflicts, confidence obtained by establishing a strong belief system, and empowerment received through a personal and intimate relationship with the Spirit of truth.
At conception, we all (except for Jesus Christ) received an operating system download of the original Adam’s sin nature. The Scripture says,
“For as by one man’s disobedience many were made sinners, so by the obedience of one shall many be made righteous.” (Romans 5:19 KJV)
This download focuses the attention of our instinct on self, and how to survive, adapt and overcome. From this perspective, we begin to make countless instinctual decisions from the events of life that through childhood and early teen years form a mental, emotional, and psychological guide for the rest of our lives. Many of our decisions are made from a deeply emotional place of hurt and become charged with unforgiveness, bitterness, false beliefs, vows, lies, and unrighteous soul ties. Like the ripples created by flinging a rock in a pond, these unresolved conflicts cause adverse effects across our psyche and through out our lives. Fear, death and rejection are three of the most powerful rocks thrown into our pond.
This lady went to Asheville, North Carolina with skepticism and received her first Sozo. Breakthrough came as the power of the Holy Spirit touched her in revelation, in deliverance, and in healing for her soul. She experienced God like never before. Her perspective changed. She forgave her family. She repented of her judgments. She renounced lies and broke vows. She severed unrighteous soul-ties. Her belief system began to change as she walked into a relationship with the Spirit of Truth. She received her value as established by God’s gold standard; the price of Jesus life. As she was quickened with the power of the Spirit, she received an eternal allied in God. He dispelled her depression. He accepted her. He loved her. He now walks with her.
Now she lives in God’s vision for her life. She now experiences God’s love, lives in agreement with his Truth, and takes action with his revelation. The victim spirit is transformed into more than a butterfly, she is now an over comer and more than a conqueror.
After the first six hour Sozo session, she left filled with the anointing that breaks the yoke. She basked in the presence of God all the way home, and got up the next morning with no desire to stay in bed. She said, “I don’t know what happened, but I just didn’t want to stay in bed, and it was like I could not even remember the depression that God delivered me from.” She came back for more of God’s healing power. He set her feet upon the rock of his love. A couple of Sozo experiences later, God put her fractured heart back together; and she was made whole by the power of the Holy Spirit. This is a process of saving grace and the soul coming into agreement with God’s eternal plan. Your relationship with God is the most single important thing in your life.
Now, after six or seven Sozo experiences she is walking in wholeness. She is healed. She is set free. She is a fighter. She no longer takes medication. She no longer needs to see a psychiatrist. She functions by her husband’s side as a minister of the gospel, works as a trained nutritionist, and now she is a trained Christian Life Coach. She also facilitates Sozo sessions, as the Holy Spirit directs, that brings freedom and empowers faith in others. She is made new by the cleansing blood of Jesus Christ, by the obedience to the Word of God, and by the power of the Holy Spirit. Jesus is still the answer.
The decision is completely yours. Rejection is not God’s intention for you. Depression is not God’s intention for you either. Deliverance and healing will bring new revelation, a new perspective, and a new way of living.
One day, a young lady showed up on the steps of our church for help. She said, “I have heard that you deliver people from demons here. Will you help me? I want to be delivered.” I responded with, “Yes, we do deliver people here because Jesus told us to in Matthew 10:8. And yes, I believe we can help you.”
Her first proclamation was good, but there was a detachment between her heart and her mouth that mystified me. Since something did not set right with the team that was ministering to her, we proceeded with an interview. Through a number of questions and the revelation of spiritual discernment, the real motive behind her desire to be delivered surfaced. She was a witch, and wanted us to cast the devils out so she could get more demons. I know it sounds insane. Most people have not experienced the torment of demons. Jesus gave this revelation about demonic activity.
“When an evil spirit goes out of a person, it travels over dry country looking for a place to rest. If it can’t find one, it says to itself, ‘I will go back to my house.’ So it goes back and finds the house empty, clean, and all fixed up. Then it goes out and brings along seven other spirits even worse than itself, and they come and live there. So when it is all over, that person is in worse shape than at the beginning. This is what will happen to the evil people of this day.” (Matthew 12:43-45 GNB)
I have only had a few people who wanted to keep their demons, but this lady wanted more. IF she had gotten her way, at least seven more wicked demons would have come to her and the end of her life would have been worse.
We tried to convince the young lady by telling her what her future would look like. She would not be turned, and we released her without deliverance. But if you want to be delivered the authority of God is available for freedom.
Believe and receive all that Jesus has done for you, take the authority he has given you, and command the demon spirits to go in Jesus’ name. The word of God is the law in the physical and the spiritual realms, and you must deny and defy his law to be tormented by demons.
“And many other signs truly did Jesus in the presence of his disciples, which are not written in this book: But these are written, that ye might believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God; and that believing ye might have life through his name.” (John 20:30-31)
Legally, demons cannot access you at their whim. There are laws that God has set in place to protect you. But just like Adam, if you want to disobey God, the demons will gain access to you, and it will not end well. The strategy of unholy and unclean spirits is to get you to believe a lie, and then motivate you to act in agreement with that lie. The demonic hordes work with lies, deceit, pride, and the curse of Adam’s nature to get you to agree with them. Therefore, when demons show up in your life, as they do in everyone’s life, there is a cause.
“He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.” (1 John 3:8)
If a demon is in your life, you made a choice somewhere and somehow to agree with him. It may have been at a point of deep hurt, intense rejection, forceful trauma, extreme fear, severe abuse, the willful act of immoral sin, or a repeated act of rebellion against authority. All of us have made similar decisions, and therefore, most of these demons have been with us for a while.
They creep like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.
THE CREATOR HAS A PURPOSE
One day a lady came in with tormented thoughts of depression and suicide. The demons had been oppressing her for years through intimidation and fear. She had not learned or exercised the authority that she had in Christ. Instead, she followed the normal human avenues for health and sanity, seeing a psychiatrist and taking anti-depressants that kept her numb. “This really didn’t help.” She said.
God is the creator of all things and did not make you from pond scum. He made you in his own image. God’s desire as the very first Father was to reproduce after his kind; in his image, according to his likeness, and conferring on his children the authority of his dominion. (Genesis 1:26) Father God gave Adam his own qualities, attributes and characteristics. He imagined a son that would look like him, not someone else. This is why you don’t look like a monkey. Aren’t you glad God loved you enough to make you in his image? Aren’t you glad he is not a duck?
Before God made you, he wrote into the creation’s DNA the recognition of his sons and daughters and the authority he would give them. All of creation will respond to you. This is why bears usually run from men, and snakes run from women. Through these same laws, you were given the authority to deal with the visible and invisible realms and everything that creeps on the earth. This is the first establishment of divine authority given to you through his word.
First Level of Authority
The visible and invisible realms exist together and are authorized by the word of God. God’s word is the law in both realms, because his word holds all of creation together. (Colossians 1:16-17) Therefore, this word spoken by God established your created purpose, and institutes the first level of authority he delegated to you through Adam. God’s spoken declaration of the purpose of man was recorded in Genesis 1:26:
And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion …over all the earth… and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth. (Genesis 1:26)
After Elohim agreed in this purpose; he stepped onto the earth to form man from the dust of the earth. This writing in Genesis was not for his benefit, for he has always known, from eternity, what he was going to do and why. This scripture was written for your sake. He wants you to know what he established for you. When you know what his purpose is concerning your created design and destiny, you can know his heart and seek him out.
This is what Genesis 1:26, phrased by phrase, established for you. When God said “In our image…” image is a word that means shadow, therefore revealing that he made you to be like him, and possess his heart. When God said, “In his likeness…” likeness is a word that means similitude, therefore revealing that He made you to act like him, and to model him. When God said, “…let them have dominion…” dominion is a word that means rule, therefore revealing that he made you to rule like him, and administrate his kingdom’s power as well as his spiritual and physical resources.
You are formed as God’s son or daughter and when you become just like him, you make him a proud papa. This is the foundation of your authority in the creation and this word has never been rescinded. But there were problems in Paradise. Adam and Eve believed and obeyed the word of Satan over the word of God. (Genesis 3)
If the demons can get you to believe that God’s word is not true, you will believe their lies, and they will have you. And believe me, there is a mountain of lies in the earth today about God, his Word, angels, demons, spiritual beings, ghosts and the living dead Zombie like “people.” These myths are promoted in novels, by TV shows, and through movies, but these lies are coming from the spirit realm through someone’s twisted imagination. But God will always tell you the truth because he is the Creator.
“For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist.” (Colossians 1:16-17)
The earthly picture would be of a king who establishes his throne through the authority of his word and deeds, and then in the fullness of time transfers all of his authority, power, resources, and the future of his kingdom to his well trained son or daughter.
A New Level of Authority
The second establishment of your authority is based in the finished work of Jesus Christ on the cross. When he died for you and shed his perfect blood for you, he paid the ultimate price to forgive your sin and save your soul. He destroyed the power of the enemy, took the keys of death hell and the grave into his own hands, and established his sovereign authority. The only thing you can do to obtain this authority is believe him. When you choose to believe him your soul joins with eternal power. When you receive Jesus as your personal Savior, you have the same authority he does, because you are standing in him; his person, his love, his family, his work, his resurrection, his authority, and his power. This is the testimony of Jesus Christ that Matthew was writing about;
And Jesus came and spoke unto them, saying, “All power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.” (Matthew 28:18-20)
Jesus has always had all authority in heaven and earth, but when the first Adam chose sin he submitted the free exercise of his authority over the creation to the prince of the power of the air, Lucifer. Man still has authority over the creation according to the word of God, but his authority was abdicated (willfully walked away from for another opinion), and man would now have to fight to triumph.
Instead of walking with God and freely absorbing all that you need from him, you chose with Adam to question the word of God, for the power of your own opinion. Basically, instead of knowing the truth from God himself, you have to fight to come to his truth, because your truth; the assumption of truth established through your own perception, evaluation and assimilation of your experiences, feels more right to you.
Since God puts things together with purpose; the angelic and the demonic serve his created purpose and plan. This reality is a foundational part of your belief system, if you will walk free.
When the Lady at the beginning of this article came in, she could not find any physical lasting hope or help.
As God began to open the eyes of her soul, she saw a dark fog-like being surrounding her, with little static lightning bolts sporadically illuminating. She had lost her identity in her childhood, and began to believe that she was the sum of her dark secrets. She had been visited by a demon in a moment of great fear and told that he would protect her. The demon lied, because that is what they do, but she wanted help so she agreed with him; but over the years her identity was eclipsed by this ominous cloud of depression. She believed the depression was her.
After this was revealed I said, “This is good news.”
She said, “Good news? This is not good news, it’s a demon. What do you mean its good news?”
I responded, “Well, all that you have been experiencing, and all of the symptoms you have listed for me are the energies and qualities of this dark cloud around you. This means that it is not you! All of the thoughts of suicide and hopelessness are not you or your thoughts. It is the demon that is manifesting as this ominous cloud.” Then I said, “Do you want to keep this demon and his thoughts?”
She said, “No! Are you kidding?”
I reacted with a small chuckle, “I have to ask that question so that your will can engage.” As I began to reveal the authority that Christ had established for her, she was filled with a righteous anger for the years this demon had stolen from her.
At this point, we began to activate the authority of Christ through prayer. Faith coupled with prayer is the most powerful weapon that destroys the work of the enemy. We began to pray something like this:
In the name of Jesus and by the power of his blood, I confess that Jesus Christ is Lord over all creation, and I submit to him right now. Lord God, I take the authority you have given me, the authority of the word of God, and by the power of the blood of Jesus, I command any and every unclean spirit of depression and intimidation, manifesting around me or in me to be bound in Jesus’ name and to leave my life now! I renounce any involvement with it, and any participation with it, and any agreement that I have ever had with it.
Unclean spirit, I do not need you, I do not want you, and I command you to leave my life now, in Jesus’ name.’ Go now, before the throne of God, and give an account of yourself, and do not return to me in Jesus name!’
Lord Jesus, I agree with you that I have lived in fear. But from this moment, I renounce the spirit of fear and I receive a spirit of power, love and a sound mind. I choose right now to receive your perfect love to fill me. I confess any unforgiveness as sin, and I choose to forgive anyone who has ever hurt me. I choose to live in a spirit of forgiveness from this day forward.
Lord Jesus, will you please send the Holy Spirit to fill me, and send your healing light into my heart, my soul, my body, and my life right now, please? I receive the Spirit of holiness, the spirit of burning and justice, with power and might, to guard me in all the places of my heart and soul. Thank you Lord Jesus. I affirm my confidence and faith in Jesus’ sacrifice on the cross right now in the name of Jesus, AMEN!
You have the same authority as your eternal Father, because you are his child.
She was delivered, stepped into the joy of the Lord and began to walk on a trek with the eternal Father as he reestablished her identity in him. When your identity is broken the demons attack and prey on you. Your identity is who you believe you are from the heart, and is very important for your sanity. The Apostle Paul, almost two thousand years ago stated the identity that you have in Jesus Christ in Colossians 1:12-13.
Giving thanks unto the Father, which hath made us meet to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son:
This is your identity. God wants you to believe, receive and walk in this authority. When you accept Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, you are a son or daughter of God, a saint of light, a partaker of the inheritance, who has been translated from the power of darkness into the kingdom of his dear Son. You have the same authority as your eternal Father, because you are his child. (John 1:12)
God bless you and walk free with POWER!!!

Demons have been the focus of many Hollywood movies over the years. The Exorcist, The Exorcism of Emily Rose, Angels and Demons, and Constantine with Keanu Reeves, to name a few. You can get a demon from these movies if you want one. All of these movies struck a cord of fear-chill and raked in millions of dollars. In each story line, the demons travel as big, ugly, powerful, and intimidating beings bent on destruction. There are pieces of truth mixed with massive amounts of supposition in these stories, but who would be watching a movie for the truth anyway, right? But most people do not study the scripture to discover the truth about demons, so they make up their own mix of demonology from books, stories, movies, and any personal experience they may have.
You will have spiritual beings that come around you from time to time. Some have a right to stay and some will have to go; depending on your activity. One day I was talking to a friend. He said, “Some people think there is a demon behind every bush.” Now my response would be, “I don’t think there is a demon behind every bush, but if there is a person behind that bush, there will most likely be a demon there trying to intimidate, oppress, condemn, depress, accuse, over power, and stir up as much trouble as possible.”
In more than thirty years of ministry and counseling, I am talking to more and more people who are witnessing angelic activity, reporting demonic torment, entertaining more dreams and visions and encountering spiritual experiences. It is as if the veil that exists between the physical and Spiritual realms is thinner. What’s more, the paradigm in the western mindset for the invisible world is breaking through the ominous cloud of intellectual criticism. Many are experiencing very powerful breakthroughs. Angelic activity is increasing in the earth as the end of days approaches and God tests the hearts of all men on the earth. But the reality of the soul’s trouble, stinking thinking, and psyche torment can not be over looked. When Lot, Abraham’s nephew lived in Sodom and Gomorrah, the Bible says that he vexed his righteous soul daily. (2 Peter 2:7-8) The evil activities of the inhabitants of that nation frustrated Lot’s psyche. It was not Lot’s sin, but the sin in his culture.
Torment in Society
There are many experiences happening in our society today that require an explanation that intellectualism and scientific study cannot answer. For example, when the bomb exploded at the Boston Marathon in 2013, the nation was dazed with the actions of two brothers who shared a religious belief system that told them to kill Americans, and if they died in honor of Mohammad and the Koran, they would be a martyr. There is no intellectual answer or scientific explanation for this irrational and immoral behavior. Our society is creating a massive spiritual void in the hearts of its people by trying to establish itself as a non-spiritual nation. As a result, there is a rising tide of spiritual hunger, spiritual awareness, and spiritual power that is working its way as yeast through the lump of dough we call humanity.
The souls of men and women are being activated. Spiritual forces are aligning. The darkness that encompasses the earth is growing darker. The glory on the children of God is glowing brighter. (Isaiah 60) The word of God is being fulfilled. The book of Revelation is walking off of the page into current events. The sons of God and the forces of darkness are coming to maturity as the end of day’s battles approach.
However, for the actions of the two brothers in Boston there is a spiritual answer. A demonic force called a spirit of anti-Christ. (1 John 4:2-6) This demon hates anyone who loves Christ; the anointed one, and drives legally motivated people to kill anyone who breaks their law. True love experienced through the forgiveness of sin is the only antidote. Jesus came that you might have life and have it more abundantly. (John 10:10) The enemy (Satan) comes to steal kill and destroy. If this is Satan’s mode of operations, then who was behind the scene driving the bombing in Boston? Who then is Allah aligned with? The radicalization of American citizens is happening as they read the Koran, attend their Mosques, live in their families, and as it is approved by their Imams (preachers).
People find purpose when they give their life for a heart-felt conviction, even if that conviction is misguided and destructive. But when a man or woman believes they are fulfilling the will of God, they will give their lives unto death. All who would be called gods are looking for this kind of commitment. Never in scripture will you find God telling his people to kill themselves. This is of demonic origin. If you want to be free from the torment of demons, you can be. The purpose of demons is revealed in the first book in the Bible. (Genesis 3)
The Demon’s Purpose
In the Garden of Eden, Lucifer the first demon appears and tempts Eve as she is admiring the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. His strategy was deception, choice and betrayal. With his words, he wanted to cause Eve to doubt the goodness of God (deception), get her to make a choice to eat the forbidden fruit (choice), and connive words that would motivate her to betray her God and self. He could not physically twist her arm and force her to eat. He could only talk to her and get her to believe that she deserved the wisdom of the forbidden tree, and then provoke her to take it for herself. Make this mental note: every door to an act of sin and demonic entrance will be opened by a person that believes a lie. With Adam’s decision to eat the fruit in disobedience to God’s command, the curse of death infected the entire creation. This was the demon’s goal.
God’s Curse Reveals Purpose
God’s curse of the serpent holds the key to the purpose of demons.
This is the curse that God spoke for the serpent: “And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because you have done this, you are cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon your belly shall you go, and dust shall you eat all the days of your life: And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed; it shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel .” (Genesis 3:14-15 NKJV)
The serpent was used by Lucifer in the Garden of Eden, and was cursed in the physical and spiritual realm for his part. God’s curse for the cunning physical serpent was also applicable for the demon spirit serpent, as Lucifer was functioning in the physical and spiritual realm at the same time. When God says something, it becomes the law in the physical and spiritual realms simultaneously.
The first part of this curse is “Because you have done this, you are cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field…” Lucifer could not tempt Eve without the body of a snake to work through. Therefore, the serpent was cursed for allowing Lucifer to use his body. There is a curse that comes on anything or anyone who lets a demon use them to tempt another human. Demons are motivated to destroy you because they want to cause as much havoc as possible on every human that carries the image of God.
The second part of the curse is “…upon your belly shall you go, and dust shall you eat all the days of your life…” Now a once proud and shrewd being that walked around erect, would now be cursed to slither on his belly and eat dust. This curse is still in effect for the reptilian species to this day. On the invisible demon side, the serpent was cursed to slither in the lowest places in the creation and eat humankind’s spiritual dust all the days of his life. The demons know their end will be the lake of fire. But before they get there, the demons are cursed to eat the yuck that surfaces when you are acting in agreement with your fleshly desires. Since demons do not die, they have been eating human dust dust for a long time.
So, what is this dust they are cursed to eat? You can find a clue to this puzzle a few verses later when God curses the man.
“…In the sweat of your face shall you eat bread, till you return unto the ground; for out of it were you taken: for dust you are, and unto dust shall you return.” (Genesis 3:19)
Adam was made from dust in the physical realm and God said he would return there. It was your flesh that was made out of dust. So the actions of the flesh to gratify the lusts of the body is the spiritual dust that the demons have a right to eat. This means whenever or wherever your flesh surfaces the demons are commanded to eat.
When you choose to respond to the feelings of anger that lead to hate for your brother or sister, the demons will eat it and entice you to take it one step further, to murder. When you are over come with the feelings of bitterness and envy for someone who you believe has more stuff and more favor than you, the demons will come to eat and entice you to devise a plan to take what they have and destroy them. When you feel the desire for sexual gratification in your body and you begin to give yourself to fulfilling them in an unlawful way, the demons will come to eat and entice you to go further into adultery and perversion. This is eloquently stated in proverbs 9.
“A foolish woman is clamorous: she is simple, and knows nothing. For she sits at the door of her house, on a seat in the high places of the city, To call passengers who go right on their ways: Whoso is simple, let him turn in hither: and as for him that wants understanding, she saith to him, Stolen waters are sweet, and bread eaten in secret is pleasant. But he knows not that the dead are there; and that her guests are in the depths of hell.” (Proverbs 9:13-18)
The end of these temptations and enticements will be destruction and demonic oppression. There are more desires of the flesh that I could name here, but the action to gratify your flesh will draw flies (demons), just like the waste of your flesh draws flies (demons). God pronounced this curse as a law in the creation and it will be in effect until the end of time.
The purpose of demons is to eat the flesh when it surfaces in your life. God’s design and intention is for you to experience grace and peace through the full knowledge of God. Jesus Christ has given us all things that are relevant for life and godliness. This promise comes by faith, but there is another choice you can make. You can choose the corruption that is in the world through lusts. God does not keep you in the dark about the works of the flesh, he gives you a couple of lists so that you can know what this flesh or dust looks like.
The Works of the Flesh
When you choose the following sins, demons will smell it and come to eat.
The first list is in Galatians 5:17-21:
“Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, Idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, emulations, wrath, strife, seditions, heresies, Envyings, murders, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have also told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.
The second list that compares the actions of the flesh compared to the actions of the Spirit, and shows what the dust looks like that the demons are cursed to eat is Ephesians 5:1-5:
“Be ye therefore followers of God, as dear children; And walk in love, as Christ also hath loved us, and hath given himself for us an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet smelling savor. But fornication, and all uncleanness, or covetousness, let it not be once named among you, as become saints; Neither filthiness, nor foolish talking, nor jesting, which are not convenient: but rather giving of thanks. For this ye know, that no whore-monger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. (Ephesians 5:1-5)
The knowledge of God is the ultimate knowledge. However, you are living in a society that has cast off the knowledge of God, the laws of God and the desire to even know him. The American society treats God as a righteous plague that will corrupt their legal system and infuse out-dated morals that are not relevant for our civilization. What you choose to meditate on and focus on will set the stage for your experience. The heart draws to itself what it chooses to believe. The Lord said, “Keep your heart with all diligence, for out of it are the issues of life.”
One Story of Freedom
One day a young needed help. He was abused as a young child by his cousin and his parents did not believe him. This breach of trust caused a chasm of offense between him and his parents. His cousin, about ten years his senior, would scare him, abuse him mentally, physically and sexually, and cause him great hurt. The smashed feelings, the deep disappointment, and the frayed emotions, layered with trauma and distress compounded the helpless brokenness he experienced. When his parents were going out on the town, they would trust his babysitting to his cousin. He would pitch a temper tantrum at the door, trying to get their attention to rescue him. They would not listen but rebuked him harshly.
As a choice, he judged his parents as untrustworthy, began to hate his parents, rebelled against everything that was remotely like them, and sought drugs to help manage the pain in his soul. Somewhere along the way he picked up a number of demonic leaches and believed the lie that they would “help” protect him. Finally the abuse stopped, but the damage to his soul had already been done. What he needed now was deliverance and healing. Eighteen years of running away from and covering the emotional pain with every drug you can imagine, until the demon had eaten almost every ounce of flesh left in him. But Jesus Christ met him and restored him to life again. Now his life is healed and he walks free. If you want to be free from the torment of demons; the cleansing of the blood of Jesus, the authority of the word of God, and the power of the Holy Spirit will set you free. You will have to place your complete confidence and faith in Jesus Christ.
This is the key for your victory. You are living in a physical body as an eternal spiritual being. As a result, the world will never be enough. You need God and the power of his Holy Spirit to fill you. Make you choice today. You can live in the Spirit. Trust him. Depend on him. Love him. Worship him. As you live your life in relationship with God, your behavior will change and your heart will be filled with love.

My SpiritWalk Journal
God’s Perspective of Forgiveness
One day as I was sitting in my office, I heard my next appointment in the waiting room. This lady had made an appointment a week earlier. She had a fulfilled marriage of 18 years, with three teenage children, and all was going well. Or so I thought… The waiting was over and she stepped into my office.
“Hi Sarah, please have a seat. How are you today?” I asked.
“Oh, I’m fine.” She said, with an apprehensive hesitant tone.
Sensing the struggle in her, I asked, “What is on your heart today?”
She hung her head, sat down in the chair said, “I need your help. I need to forgive my father. For some reason …I am not able to do that.”
My first response was rather candid, “Well, you know what the scripture says about forgiveness, don’t you?”
She says, “Yes, and I have said ‘I forgive you’ over and over again. I have prayed it. I have spoken it out loud, but somehow feelings of anger and rage keep coming up inside me, and pain comes up with it.” Her pain surfaced and I could see the conflict building. She tried to brush it off, but it would not be denied.
In that moment I realized that I was missing something. So I asked, “Do you want to tell me what you need to forgive him for?”
She looks down again, and sighs, “Ok…, I love my dad… but when I was 12 years old my dad started coming into my bedroom at night and sexually molesting me. This continued maybe two or three times a week until I was sixteen and I ran away from home. Our relationship has been now been reasonably restored, and I have tried everything to forgive him and let it go, but I can’t seem to do it.”
I thought to myself, “Give me a gun and I’ll take care of it for you.” I’m glad I didn’t say that out loud. No wonder she is troubled with forgiveness. Her father; the one man who was to establish her identity, watch over her, protect her, and be the strong moral foundation for her family; began to lust after her, touch her inappropriately, and gratify his lustful desire with her violently. This action is so demeaning that it crushes the spirit. The closest description to the way she would feel is as a black hole that is so dark and lifeless that it sucks up every good feeling from her life.
As she is pouring out her heart, I began a conversation with God in the back of my mind, “Oh God, please help! The trite answers that everyone would give for forgiveness will not work in this situation. I need your wisdom Oh Lord. What do you want me to tell her?”
Then I heard a still small voice that I know as the Lord’s whisper, “She needs a picture for her life that is bigger than herself.” While I was talking to her in my office, this conversation between me and God continued in the back of my mind. “I agree Lord, but what picture would that be?”
He said, “Take out a piece of paper. I want you to tell her a story and draw a diagram. Write on the right side near the top, ‘Jehovah = I am that I am’ and tell her that I am Jehovah, which means ‘I am that I am.’”
He then said “Draw a triangle, representing God the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit, as the originator of this plan, in the top left corner of the paper. Now share this with her, Jehovah = I am that I am, and that everything adds up in my universe.”
As I wrote this on that piece of paper, my hand went right under the ‘I am that I am’ and wrote 1+1=2, and then under that equation to write 2+2=4. Then he said, “Tell her that since ‘I am that I am’ is my nature, what you see is what you get. Everything adds up in my universe and everything has to add up in my universe. I am perfect, and I created everything perfect in its original state.”
Then the still small voice said, “Now, draw a short line from the left side of the paper, about half way down.” As I drew, my hand moved as if I knew what to draw. For an hour or more I talked to her about God’s eternal plan for her life, and his eternal purpose to forgive and redeem his creation back to him. On the line at the left side of the paper, I drew two trees with two people (stick figures) standing under these trees.
And then he said, “Now tell her… Into this perfect environment I planted a garden full of fruit trees. But in the midst of this garden, I put the tree of life and the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Then I put Adam in the garden and told him “…of every tree in the garden you may eat, but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, you shall not eat of it: for in the day that you eat thereof thou shall surely die.” (Genesis 2:17)
Then He said, “Tell her that Adam and Eve chose to eat from this forbidden tree and disobey me. And when they acted in disobedience, they sinned and fell from the original state of perfection they were created in, to a state of legal separation from me and a total commitment to self as the source, causing the curse of death and the fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil to pass as an inherited curse to every man woman and child.”
As I was describing the fall, I drew a vertical line down to the bottom of the page, and drew two stick figures, lying down in a position of death. Next, I drew a circle around them with slash marks around the circle coming from the outside of the circle in toward Adam and Eve; illustrating the anger of God that was directed toward them for their act of disobedience and that the integrity of his nature required when a breach to his Holiness is activated. This circle that looked like an explosion illustrated his nature being an all consuming fire, that cleanses as it consumes.
Then he said, “Tell her that in the moment of their decision, they sinned and fell from perfection. For the first time in earth’s creation, everything did not add up in my universe any more. But everything must add up in my universe, and someone has to pay for sin and death. Therefore, I was presented with two choices.
First, I could totally annihilate them; making them pay for their own disobedience and causing them to bear the full weight of my righteous anger. If I annihilate them, everything will be atoned for, and everything will add up in my universe again. This was my first choice, but I had another.
Second, I could take all that they deserved in judgment and death, anger and accusation, guilt and condemnation, offence and betrayal onto myself, and then take all of that righteous and holy justice of destruction and death out on my Son on the cross.”
As I said this, my hand drew a circular line starting from the explosion of death at the bottom of the left-hand section of the page; around to the top of the page right into the triangle I had drawn in the beginning, representing God. Next, I moved about 2/3’s of the distance across the page and drew a cross on the timeline. And then I drew a straight line on an angle from the triangle to the cross, representing the place where God put all that Adam and Eve deserved on his Son. Jesus was made “…to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.” (2 Corinthians 5:21)
Then he said, “When I chose this, Adam and Eve, and with them all of humanity, was given grace and mercy to be lifted up into life again; not because they deserved it, but because I loved them.” As I was saying these things, I drew a line from the circle of death and judgment up to the straight timeline that was completed to the right of the page. Then, I drew the stick figures of Adam and Eve on the line.
He continued, and I continued, “Now, in this state of grace they would be given many opportunities to hear my story of salvation, see Jesus on the cross, and exercise their free-will to believe in my Son Jesus. If they choose to receive and believe, they will receive eternal life and walk in forgiveness. But if they choose not to believe, they will die in their sin, and be sent to hell with the fallen angels.”
Tell her “I took the second choice, and took her sin on myself, and took all of my righteous anger and justice out on my son on the cross. And now, everything adds up in my universe again. I and my Son paid what she could not. It was her sin and her father’s sin that I took to the cross.”
We then said, “Now your father is lying in that fallen place of death and condemnation, deserving total annihilation. When you were in this same place of sin, I took your offense on myself, carried it to the cross and left it there. Will you take your father’s sin on yourself, carry your father’s offense to the cross and leave it there? This is how she can act just like me.” Her tears started to roll down her cheeks. She hung her head to think and process what she had heard.
After a few moments I asked, “Do you want your father to be condemned to hell forever for what he has done to you?”
It felt almost like an eruption when she exclaimed, “No… He is my dad!” Then I saw a light come into her eyes. She lifted up her head and said, “Thank you, I can forgive him now.” When she chose to forgive, her burden was lifted, and she was free. Through wisdom, this lady received an entirely new perspective of her life purpose and she was shown how to forgive. She built a foundation for truth and wisdom for her life when she chose to act.
This is an story taken as a segment out of Steve’s new book coming out soon entitled: IF YOU COULD? Seven Keys to Activate the Imagination
We are all here.
One day I received a call from a mother. It was late and her boy had just come home. She remembered her son as a vibrant youth that graduated from high school with honors, and worked as a paint contractor with her husband, a building contractor. He had been a normal teenager who rebelled against his parents. Before he was out of his teenage years, he took a turn for the worst, experimented with drugs and alcohol among friends and ended up hooked. After graduation he went through a couple of drug and substance abuse programs, and had kept the pain of the soul and his demons at bay until he entered his early twenties. However, the young man she saw at her front door was not the son she remembered. When he came home, he had been using drugs for almost 18 years. In the last few years he had used up all of his friends, ripped off several construction sites and betrayed his family members so many times that he had burned every bridge for help. After years of being on the streets, getting drugs whenever and however he could, committing unmentionable crimes and sins, he was standing at her door, a 70 pound shell of emptiness. The demons had almost killed him, and this was not the first time they had tried. She said, “My son has come home, will you come and help us?” My Associate Pastor and I went over and began to minister to him. After about a two hour cleansing and deliverance session the demons were gone and he was free. He slept for days.
A Rising Spiritual Power
The Sons of God in a Dark World
In more than thirty years of ministry, I am seeing more angelic activity, more demonic torment, more dreams and visions reported, more demonic faith, more spiritual night mares, and more powerful deliverance with sustained freedom in my counseling appointments than at any other time. Isaiah the prophet, who is more accurate than Nostradamus, prophesied these things almost 2500 years ago:
Arise, shine; for thy light is come, and the glory of the LORD is risen upon thee. For, behold, the darkness shall cover the earth, and gross darkness the people: but the LORD shall arise upon thee, and his glory shall be seen upon thee. And the Gentiles shall come to thy light, and kings to the brightness of thy rising. (Isaiah 60:1-3 KJV)
All across America, and around the world, there is a rising tide of spiritual hunger, spiritual awareness, and spiritual power that is working as yeast through a lump of dough. The souls of men and women are being activated. This includes people I have met from around the world; Africa, Egypt, India and China.
One young believer laid his life on the line every day in Cairo, Egypt. He noticed the police watching him, as if on a stake-out. One night after a meeting he started home at dusk, when the police began to pursue him. He started to run for his life. Up the stairs to the roof top, he began jumping from roof top to roof top, and then into an old hiding place. This room was secure, he thought, until the pursuing police and a few town officials busted through the door. This room had never been compromised before. His hands went up as his heart began to thank God for the privilege of being persecuted for him. There were city officials with the police this time. The officials commanded the police officers to leave them and go back to the station. This seemed highly unusual to this young man. After the police officers left and only he and the officials remained, the leader of the officials said, “Each of us have had a vision of Jesus Christ, and he told us who he was and that he was the only God. We have renounced Islam and the Muslim faith. Will you take us to your meetings?” They all went that night and joined a group in an underground meeting; and joined the church of Jesus Christ. No religion can keep God from speaking to people.
Many are seeing God as he really is while others are multiplying the lies and deception surrounding the Spiritual realm and the ministry of light and dark angels. In this book I want to bring to your attention to many insights, knowledge and understanding in the scripture, that show the source of demon activity, reveal the strategy of the enemy, show the power of the accuser, and demonstrate the authority you have for deliverance. The Lord God spoke this to his servant Hosea the prophet.
My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I also will forget thy children. (Hosea 4:6)
These existed before time and space!
You are living in a society that has cast off the knowledge of God, the laws of God and the desire to even know them. They have taken prayer out of the schools, the Ten Commandments out of the courts, and the scriptures out of the classroom. Corruption is at an all time high; from the highest seat in government to the lowest station in the workplace. You and I live somewhere in between these two posts. Although Hosea 4:6 is a word from God to Israel some 2300 years ago; God has not changed and his word is still accurate and effective. If you want to be free from the torment of demons, only the forgiveness of the blood of Jesus, the authority of the word of God, and the power of the Holy Spirit will set you free, but you will have to agree with God. Demons are on a rampage through the flesh of every country on earth. Many people have more faith for the power of demons than for the person and work of Jesus Christ. Therefore, a curse of anxiety, panic, paranoia, and fear is unprecedented in the hearts of the people. The heart of the matter is what you believe. The fear of the unknown, a natural human reaction to the introduction to the Spirit realm, ranks up there in the list of Top Ten Tactics used by your unseen enemy.
This new power is Holy and unholy. In the end… GOD WINS!!! If you know Him… YOU WIN!!! But the choice is always yours!!! Learn how to fight with Holy Spirit and the angels. That is a purpose of this blog. Happy hunting!
