Here's my testimony!

For the past nine months I had been severely tortured by the enemy. I had been reading one night, spending some time with the Lord, when the enemy planted some blasphemous thoughts in my mind and accused me of the unpardonable sin and convinced me that I would be forever separated from my Lord. For 2 months I barely slept, I didn’t eat, drink, smile or laugh. I also couldn’t read the Word, listen to worship music, or even walk into my church without much fear. I would sob everyday, all day. I could feel and hear the demons arguing over me at night. I could feel them tearing at my insides by day. I was extremely sick. The thought of not being with Jesus just ripped me to shreds. I knew that without Him there would be no joy in anything that happened in my life. What would getting married, having children and watching them grow be without having the Lord right in the middle of it, smiling and rejoicing with me? There would be no joy in anything. My mother, at several times, thought that she was going to have to put me in the hospital because I was so far gone. But praise God He intervened on my behalf and took away some of that fear to where I could function as I once did. For the next 7 months I struggled, but on a much lower scale. I could smile a little and laugh a little and I was able to eat and drink like I used to, but I always had the underlying fear that I had lost the Lord. I was bogged down with fear, loneliness and depression. The enemy was shoving my face in the mud and I just couldn’t get up.

Before all of this had happened, I did not believe that a Christian could have demons. I refused to believe it. Where there is light there can be no darkness, right? Surely the enemy is unable to torture a Christian! Why, if you are being tortured then you must not really be one! I have never heard anything more untrue or silly! I LOVED my Lord! I wanted with all of my heart to serve Him. And the thought of not being with Him made me ill! It tore me to pieces. Can one sit there and truly tell me that I’m not a Christian? That I’m not really a Child of God because I had demons torturing me? I went yesterday to see Pastor James to go through deliverance. I had over 14 demons cast out of me! FOURTEEN! And afterwards I felt like I was floating on air! The heaviness and fear I had felt for the past 9 months was GONE! My dearest friends were in that room with me and witnessed all of it and told me afterwards that I even looked different! There was a glow and a peace surrounding me that I hadn’t felt in the longest time and it showed in my countenance. This morning I opened the Word and read it for the first time in months without fear! I feel like sunshine on the inside and I can feel it radiating through my entire being. The Lord is SO good! Jesus has paid for our freedom, for our healing, for our deliverance! He’s given us authority over the devil and we are to use it! Satan is the accuser of the brethren, not the unbeliever! No one can ever tell me again that a Christian can’t have demons. It’s just not true. I’m a Christian and I had demons. And the Lord set me free from them by the blood of Jesus!

In Christ,
Lucy

Young boy was visited by demons from a bad soul tie

Here's a neat testimony that really gives you a good idea of the power of a soul tie.

A while back, I ministered deliverance counseling to a young man who was being visited by demons at night. It was awful, he would hear them, see things happening around him, etc. The night I got in touch with him, he didn't want to goto bed it was so bad. As we were talking about the possible entry points in his life for the demon, he remembered that he had a girl friend who was into witchcraft. I asked him if he had ungodly relations with her, and he said that he did. Through those ungodly relations, a soul tie was formed, and either her or the demons in her were using it to send evil his way.

I led him to through breaking the soul tie and legal grounds in Jesus' name. I told him if this doesn't do the trick, then please seek further help to have spirits cast out. (Sometimes all that's needed is the breaking up of some legal grounds, but not always... often spirits do need to be driven out.)

A month later, I had an opportunity to ask him how he was doing. He said he was doing good, and that the demonic attacks/visitations have stopped completely!

Praise God!!! :clapping:

Neat testimony of binding demon spirits

Thought you all might enjoy this...

I work with a company where you're meeting with new people, and constantly have a nice variety of people to face and sometimes *cough* deal with. Not that long ago, the company was up against a very sticky situation with a client. The person was by far the worse we have ever dealt with. She was nearly impossible to please. She made working with her nearly impossible and VERY difficult. She would get on the phone, and cause somebody to just shake in their boots the way she carried on. When we finally got her satisfied, she changed her mind on her order and decided to dump us. She threatened to take us to court over a petty few hundred dollars (which was WELL earned). She demanded that we give her back all the money she spent with us. (hello?? the work was already done!!!) I just knew we were dealing with a demon in her (and we were!).

Anyways, the big meeting was approaching, where we were just going to give her back the money she spent with us and tell her to move on. That day, a couple of us went together and bound up the demon spirits in this woman before she arrived. She pulled up with her boyfriend or husband, and he stayed out in the car. She came into the office, and her whole personality made a 180 change... you would NOT know this was the same person! She started crying and was bawling in the office... somebody handed her a box of tissues, and when she was done, she had a mound of them laying there... she stared at one of the employees and said "WHO ARE YOU???????" and kept bawling... the employee (who is a Christian) was telling her about Jesus, and she was soaking it up... the sad part is that she said that she was still not willing to give up her old lifestyle. :(

But I just thought you might enjoy that testimony, where the weapon of binding was put into action, and DRASTIC results came fourth! What an awesome God we serve, to give us the authority over those demons like that!!

A woman delivered from a spirit of error

I was talking with young woman, and she said that she felt a dark heaviness feeling since looking at some false teachings one day. She also felt a rebellion stir up in her as she tried to get into God's Word. I told her to repent for looking at the false teachings, renounce the spirit of error and command it to leave. As she followed those steps, she felt pressure build in her chest and then the spirit departed. Afterwards she was amazed, and said that before it left she felt like she was breathing smog, but afterwards she felt like she was breathing fresh air!! What a difference!!!

Praise God!! :clapping:

Spirits can make a big difference in the way we feel... the Bible even speaks of a spirit of heaviness!

This is a testimony that a friend of mine shared. He gave me permission to post it here. :wave:

After I was done, I invited our worship team to lead in worship, and I went in the back to drink some water. A sister came up to me (who I prayed over at a conference earlier this year) and said when I was speaking the girl that she brought for prayer started to experience extreme pain and got very agitated to the point she had to leave temporary. I told her that it was not unusual for the unclean spirits to react this way when truth is spoken about them. She then asked if I could pray over her. I told her that there was other people I had to minister first too, and if she didn't mind waiting I would.

It was around 9:30 pm when I sat her in a chair next to me, and asked this 19 year old girl where she fellowshipped at and how long she has been a believer. She said she's been a believer for 3 years and came over from another island to dorm at our local University for school. She then told what she was experiencing physical pain when I was speaking and got very agitated. She needed prayer because she been struggling with "stuff" and have a hard time reading the bible and going to church. I told her that I was going to invite the Holy Spirit to come and to reveal whatever needs to be revealed. Within maybe 5-10 seconds in my prayer she started to demonically react. I then started to sever all communications between the spirits, and forbade them to draw strength from each other. I started to break curses over her, and then she started to fall from her chair to the floor. I then brought her up to the alter area where there was carpet and continued as she lied down. Through the process, these were the spirits that were identified and casted out:
Suicide
Murder
Death
Deception
Fear
Guilt
Hatred

I won't get into the specifics, but during this process, I was sworn at, mocked and hit once on my arm. I was told, " I hate you, and you're gonna get it!" I was told "Let's make a deal!' Of course, I told the spirit the only deal we'll make is your departure to the feet of Jesus! Her speech was hindered. Bear in mind, the demons were commanded to not to harm anyone and to obey my commands. They continued to resist, but this I know is normal. They cause the sister to comatose several times, but through experience you command and pursue. As per my posts, I'm a supporter in identifying the spirits and their stronghold. Do I do this with every spirit? No, only the ones that I sense I need to. Death was the strongman over Murder and Suicide. Death came in when she attempted suicide because she felt she was alone and no one cared about her. This was spoken thru her by the spirit in a very raspy and low voice. I then commanded Death to go down and the sister to come back up. I had her renounce Death, Murder and Suicide, and ask the Lord for forgiveness. I then casted the spirits out. I then called up the next spirit and Deception came up. What was the stronghold? Under command, Deception said she feels God does not love her. If He did he wouldn't have allowed her to go thru what she has been going thru. (What a deception!) I commanded Deception to go back down and brought the sister back up and asked her if she doubted God and his love because of what God has allowed her to go thru. She asked me how did I know? I told her that God loves her and He thru the power of the Holy Spirit is revealing information that will set her free. I told her the Adversary has deceived her in allowing her to believe that God allowed things to happened to her because He does not love her. I told her that God do love her and that is why He has brought her here tonight. I then led her thru a prayer of repentance and renouncement and asked the Lord for his forgiveness. Deception was then casted out. Fear came in when she came to the University with no friends, no one to talk to, new environment, knowing no one. Fear was then casted out. Guilt was then identified. After commanding the spirit of Guilt to tell me how he entered in, he told me she stole gum from a store when she was 12. When I brought the sister back up, I asked her if she stole gum from a store when she was 12. She said Yes! and how did I know? Again I reminded her of God's love. She said she remembered the incident and the name of the store, and how she felt so guilty of doing such a crime. The next and last spirit was Hatred. He challenged me and refuse to reveal his name. Thru experience when this happens, I then seek after how he entered in. The spirit then told me when she was nine, her friends and relatives at a party made fun of her for the way she was dressed. At that point she hated everyone! I caught that and commanded the spirit to speak truth and tell me if you're Hatred. The demon did confirm he was Hatred. I again brought the sister back up and asked her if she went to a party when she was 9 and her friends and relatives made fun of her because of the way she was dressed? She said, " How did you know that, yes it is true!" I led her in forgiving those who made fun at her at the party and asked the Lord for his forgiveness for harboring hatred. Hatred was then casted out!

There were many obstacles during the evening, for those of you who minister in this area, you know what I'm talking about. After the last spirit was casted out you could literally see the change in her physical appearance, especially her countenance! You could literally see the joy. There was such a dramatic change! This took a total of approx 3 hrs. It was completed at 12:30 am. After I asked the Lord to fill her the Holy Spirit, she said she felt light and that she knew oppression has lifted. Throughout the ordeal, she wrenched in pain because of the hindrance the demons were causing. She then had no pain at the end! I told her to come back as a follow-up. I always want to ensure all spirits have been casted out!

Praise God!

Here's another testimony this friend of mine shared... :wave:

I was scheduled to minister to someone from another church on a Friday night early last month, when I request via e-mail asking if I could minister to another sister who has been experiencing extreme migraines and headaches almost on a daily basis. She was also experiencing horrible and frightening nightmares. I was advised that the intercessors at the church has prayed and fasted for her, but to no avail. They want to help this sister, but don’t really know what to do now. She has gone to several doctors and to the emergency several times, but nothing has been found. The doctors are continuing their pursuit in diagnosing her problem. (Thank God for doctors! We do need them!) I told her if time permits I would, but it would have to be on Sat, after my scheduled breakfast with their pastor. We met at 9:00 A.M.

As I met with this young sister and the intercessors, she told me that she only starting to experienced these problems when she accepted the Lord less than 2-3 months ago. She also told me that recently she started to experience a migraine when one of the intercessors tried to pray over her. The intercessor told me that it was true and now she’s afraid to lay hands on her? (Sounds like one of Satan’s tactics, doesn’t it?) She also said she felt like giving up on life, she’s cannot continue with the migraines. I reaffirmed her that her decision to accept our Lord in her life was the best decision she made, and that the Adversary is creating havoc in her life for doing so.

We initially dialogue for about an hour, obtaining some family background and issues in her life that she’s been struggling with. I won’t get into the issues specifically, but she repented and forgave. I then told her that I’m going pray over her (without laying my hands on her, I was in another chair), and invite the Holy Spirit and to reveal whatever needs to be revealed. I told her to surrender and cooperate with the Holy Spirit and focus on our Lord. She said she was willing to do so.

I then invited the Holy Spirit and waited upon His presence. Once I felt His presence, she started to gag, placed her hand over her mouth and ran for the bathroom. Upon her return approx 5 minutes later, I asked her if she had vomited. She said. “Yes, she started to feel ill and something started to come up!” I told her that we’re on the right track and the Lord has just revealed that there is an unclean spirit(s) in her, and that the Lord is directing us to remove it.

Did I immediately start to cast out the spirit? No…. I now felt to break curses over. I then explained to her what curses are and gave her biblical support of my perspectives, and how they can create stronghold in our lives today. I told her that I wanted to her to repeat after me, and she said she was willing.

In the process, the word “Freemasonry” came to my spirit. I then stopped her and asked her if she knew anyone in her family, past or present that was a Mason, a Demolay, a Rainbow Girl, a Job Daughter, or involved in any related secret society. She said she didn’t know. I told her to continue to repeat after me, “I (name) renounce all practices or Freemasonry from my life.” When she came to Freemasonry, she went something like Frrrrr……… She could not say it! I then commanded all spirits hindering this process to step aside in the name of Jesus. We started again and then she could say it, but strenuously. I had her repeat again and then she could say it without hesitation. (For those of you who minister in this field, try this……have the person you’re praying for repeat after you in breaking curses). I was led to do this by the Holy Spirit years ago. I believe this is one of the ways the Holy Spirit reveals to us curses are applicable today and what curses are existing in someone’s life.

I then commanded the spirit that Jesus Christ is calling forward to come to attention and reveal yourself. To make a long story short, the spirit of Anger and Fear and their right to inhabit was identified. Both were casted-out. Both spirits were directly related to her issues!

The next morning I did a follow-up phone call because I had to catch my flight back home. The sister who initiated the request for prayer told me that she had the best sleep she ever had in months!

Last night, I received another e-mail saying that she has not gotten a single headache ever since that Sat. Praise God! I was also told in the e-mail she is praising God for everything!

*About a week and a half later, he shared this followup*

This afternoon, I had lunch with her and the intercessor who arranged the initial ministry session. I asked her how she's doing (it's been over a month now)? She said she hasn't had a single migraine or headache ever since her deliverance. She also said, " I sleep so good now!"

The intercessor (her friend) said she comes to church regularly and just loves the Lord!
I told the intercessor to ensure she continues to receive counseling and mentoring. As I've mentioned in the past, deliverance is only part of the package! Praise the Lord for his love and mercy!

And another one from this friend... :wave:

I came with 2 other brothers, our ministry leader Rudy from xxxxxxx (church) and Jimmy from xxxxx Church. We had about 40 inmates (primarily believers) in the Chapel and started to worship. After worshiping for approximately 30 minutes, Rudy spoke for about 5-10 minutes. I then approached the podium and started to talk to the men on the subject of "Curses". About 15-20 minutes into my "unprepared so-called sermon", I felt the anointing of the Holy Spirit come and "electricity" started to flow within by my body. I knew from past experiences he was prompting me to pray for the men. So after rushing thru my sermon, I told them that God loved them, and that I felt the Holy Spirit was going to do something special tonight. I told them that I believed that he was going to break curses off some of them. I then advised them, "For those who are desiring to be set free, to stand..... close your eyes, and repeat after me in prayer". All stood....I then said, "Repeat after me only if it comes from your heart and if you agree with what I'm saying". I started to lead them in prayer by first acknowledging that Jesus is Lord...that he is our Savior and only He can set us free from curses and the strongholds of Satan. I then allowed them a few minutes to personally tell God of their sins and then led them in prayer, asking God's forgiveness for whatever sins they've committed. I then continued leading them by asking God to forgive the sins of their forefathers that has resulted in any generational curses and has come thru their blood-line. (I covered this in my sermon). I told them to ask God's forgiveness for dabbling in the occult or witchcraft.... for seeking another source of power other than God....to seek also God's forgiveness in placing any "idols" in their lives....and so forth....

I then invited the holy spirit to come.......(Rudy told me later, he felt a wave of the Holy Spirit wash thru him at that point). I then asked the Lord to bind all spirits and to "sever" all communications between them. I then asked the Lord by the power of the cross, by the power of his son's precious blood, and by the power of the resurrection to destroy all curses that have been placed upon my brothers before me. I then started to see some of the inmates physically react. One in particular started to have saliva drool from his mouth and his arms started to tremble. I went up to him, laid my hands on him and said, "Spirit, come out!" His entire body started to shake and "bam" down he went, hitting his chair! I asked the Holy Spirit to please continue ministering to my brother. He continued to shake as I left him lying on the carpet. I went to another inmate who was continuing "coughing". I laid my hands on him and commanded all curses to be broken and commanded all unclean spirit to leave in the name of Jesus. He later stopped coughing and told me he felt something lift out of him. I then asked, " Those who feel there is something inside of them and feels like it's stuck or want to come out to raise your hands". About 4 other inmates raised their hands....coughing at the same time...I laid hands on each one and commanded all curses to be broken and all unclean spirits to leave. They all later claimed they felt something leave or had lifted.

I knew we had only about 5 minutes left, so I called up the brother up who went down to tell us what he experienced. Being still in a dazed he said," My body started to feel "weird" as xxxxx (refering to me) was praying...I then started to feel my body shake. When xxxxx came and put his hands on me, I felt my whole body shaking some more and the next thing I knew I was down on the floor! I don't know what happened!" I then asked him how he felt. He said, " I have been struggling with some issues for a long time and now I feels it's no longer there. I feel good and know God did something for me tonight! With "watered and thankful eyes" he shook my hands and gave me a big hug and said, "Thank you, xxxxx!."

The power and love of God is tangible and evident for those who is desiring to know him in a very intimate way. There are some who say, " We should not seek experiences" .....I say seek God, and he will allow you to experience him! I do not hold back when I say.....I do seek God and I do seek to experience him!

Here's my testimony:

I cannot tell you how thankful for God's word and promises. His word says he came to heal ALL diseases. When I started studying "A More Excellent Way" and started applying truth and looking for blocks to healing in my life and went to Pleasant Valley Church in Thomaston, Georgia, I got healed of several diseases listed below through deliverance.

• Asthma – fear of abandonment in my life
• Restless Leg Syndrome
• Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID)
• Fibramyalgia
• Back Pain
• Insomnia – because of trauma in the womb, I never hardly slept as a young person. I was sensitive to any noise and would react.
• Anxiety attacks to the point I could not get out of bed for a couple of days at a time.
• Heart Disease (Mitro Valve Prolapse)
• Oppression and Depression

I had done all the traditional stuff such as counseling, behavior modification, medication, inner healing, been in healing lines, seeding faith, and every other way to overcome my problems either physically, spiritually, emotionally, and mentally!

Most of these diseases were rooted in fear. Lots of fear entered in my life because of continual trauma done to me throughout my life as a very young person. I had a curse of destruction on my life that played out almost all my life because of what was in my generations (Occultism and assignments on my life - my grandfather being a mason and grandmother being an eastern star and witchcraft on that side of the family) and also because my parents took me to a clinic to get me help as a young person. They thought I had a learning problem when I was just shut down from trauma from my brother that did many bad things to me because of his Envy and Jealousy. I went to this clinic from age 3 to 5 and while there, this man was a mason and did ritual abuse on me. I was used for child pornography to bring in money into their organization.

When the door points to trauma was dealt with (that brings in fear) and the fear issues were dealt with, through deliverance, my body was able to finally go back to peace and not stay in fight or flight. When our bodies are in fight to flight, then you start getting diseased because of high cortisol levels, and other chemicals over secreting or under secreting like serotonin levels that causes depression, etc. Of course because of the trauma, I had a list of people to forgive in my life. The Spirit of Bitterness or kingdom of Bitterness and its underlings as described in Luke 11:21-26 (unforgiveness, resentment, retaliation, anger, hatred, murder with the tongue) and many other spirits tied into bitterness that was cast out after I took responsibility and forgave them. His word says that if we do not forgive, He will not forgive us so why would he heal us?
There were many dealt with through deliverance that set me free.

Through the teachings at Pleasant Valley, they spend a lot of time teaching to recognize our thoughts, recognizing the enemy and what walkout is. We can expect to be pierced but not broken. People are going to hurt you, and how we respond to them determines if we get pierced or broken. If we immediately forgive or recognize we don’t fight against flesh and blood like it says in Ephesians 6:12 and also Paul talks about in Romans 7:17 “Now then it is no more I that do it, but sin that dwelleth in me.”, seeing the people that hurt us have sin in them and separate them from their sin then we just only got pierced, but if I choose not to forgive and get offended and allow a root of bitterness to fester, then I got broken.

I'm a whole person today and no longer fragmented and I praise the Lord for it. I no longer have flashbacks or bad dreams or tormented. I cannot thank the Lord enough what he has done for me. After my healing, I went to the professional counselor to have me tested and I was no longer DID. They could not find my parts.

Today I have a ministry and work with all kinds of people that are mentally tormented, people who are DID or have had satantic ritual abuse done to them, to people who have sickness in their bodies. I have the previlaged to see the finger of God heal these people. I give him all the glory.

People perish from lack of knowledge and we have an enemy out to kill, steal and destroy.
