Face to Face with the Demonic

Some years ago I had a few demonic encounters that helped me understand what and how demons manifest and what they look like. These demons were visible, present and manifested right in front of me.  I wasn't terrified. It was in the form of a vision.  When I was done observing them I cast them out in the Name of Jesus.  They left.

You will recognize them.  They were not demons that come with horns, a cape and a pitchfork, they came in religious garb.  Religious demons are the worst kind.  The conventional demons like legion in the demonized man of gadarenes in the cemetery is easier to deal with.  They respond directly and quickly to the name of Jesus and leave.

Religious demons put up a fight you weren't prepared for.  They will try like satan did in the wilderness with Jesus to use scripture to keep from being dealt with.  They are more devious than their brothers who were sent into pigs.   Unless you know scripture well and have the Holy Ghost alive in you, deception is possible.

Many people infected with a religious demon are unaware until they begin to manifest demonically and start to see how they are behaving.  They need deliverance.  A demonized christian is actually dangerous because he or she will gather a following and lead them to destruction.  Jim Jones was one such.  Not every demonized christian is a Jim Jones but they are on that dangerous way, they need to be dealt with or they will end up on the highway to HELL. .

Back to the first demon I met.  He was a tall man.  Dressed in garb like a priest or a monk.  He looked down on me.  He tried to make me feel inferior.  I did.. for a bit.  He had a trumpet in his hand.  Every time he said something he blew the trumpet to get attention.  He loved to be the center of attention.  He kept saying things that could only be interpreted as TISK TISK TISK.  His critical judgmental countenance put me on edge and made me feel like everything I ever knew or believed was called into question.  Then I recognized him for who he was.  The ultra Orthodox guardian of all truth (as defined by the devil) and the one who could judge you severely for straying from his supposed truth.  Yet every time he uttered some vile judgment on others he would blow his trumpet.  He was skinny.  Not thin.  SKINNY.  Why that's important I don't know, but it mattered.  As he was in my presence and I watched and heard from him I became aware I was seeing an evil demon disguised as christian.  At that realization when I had had enough of this demon I cried out aloud, BE GONE IN THE NAME OF JESUS. 

And he was.  Just that quickly.  I didn't have to put up with it.

Here's what I learned from that encounter. Ridicule might have been better.  Most religious demons have zero sense of humor.  They take themselves way too seriously.  They think they have an edge on revelation and trumpet themselves every time they speak or write.  It would be easy to ignore unless you have a call on your life to warn people away from the junior Jim Joneses of the world.  There is destruction in submitting even a little to a religious demon.

I am not talking about a difference of opinion on biblical things. My view of the end times will differ from most, but I'm not going to argue about it.  Where I get sideways with the religious demons is when they attack what God is doing to draw people to himself.   When they begin to operate in judgement of others. When they derail the spiritual journey many have begun as they tisk tisk tisk their degrading of God's activity in the earth.  They are dangerous and need to be called out.  That's what a five fold minister must do.  Call the error we see.  It's not hard, but it is essential.  Ridicule and direct confrontation is essential.  If you don't take action many will be led astray. 

So be bold and strong.  Recognize the demons for who they are and cast them out. 

Next time, the fat pig demon.  This is disgusting, but they are everywhere.

God has Released his ARMORY of LOVE and the Church is Missing it

The Church will miss this. Religion will  miss this.  Legalisms will miss this.  Only those with ears to hear and spiritual eyes to see will know what is happening and will do the Henry Blackaby thing, "Watch to see where God is working and join Him".  But organized religion and most of the Church will live in spiritual blindness and wonder why they have no capacity to be trendsetters or influencers.  

Father is once more using the foolish and despised to confound even the religious:

1 Corinthians 1:28 God also selected (deliberately chose) what in the world is lowborn and insignificant and branded and treated with contempt, even the things that are nothing, that He might depose and bring to nothing the things that are,
29 So that no mortal man should [have pretense for glorying and] boast in the presence of God.
 Too much of religion has become the glorification of man, man's works, man's ability, man's church, man's office.  Christianity has become a personality cult that leaves out God.  God is fixing this by turning over and slaughtering a lot of sacred cows that begged for slaughter. 

Prophet Bob Jones died on Valentine's Day 2014.  His last prophetic utterance contains this passage on what God is doing RIGHT NOW.  


Armory of God's LOVE
The Lord has opened His armory, and has brought out the weapons of His indignation; For this is the work of the Lord God of hosts in the land of the Chaldeans. Jeremiah 50:25
God is arming the Body of Christ with weapons of His divine love that the enemy has no defense against. We'll begin to see the army of God come together in unity, a common union, to where the enemy will have to leave entire cities. This army is getting ready to take entire cities and eventually entire states. In certain places in the world, they'll take entire nations.

This is the year the army of God comes together with angels beyond number and weapons that cannot be defeated by the enemy. Angels are here now preparing the Body for the harvest and there will be a mighty victory. This year, even the blooming of the trees is something that satan can't stop from happening.
It is happening right now.  We think it might be that we are to love one another.  That is true, but there is MUCH MORE.  The Love of God

"Don't you see how wonderfully kind, tolerant, and patient God is with you? Does this mean nothing to you? Can't you see that his kindness (Love towards you) is intended to turn you from your sin?" Romans 2:4 NLT
This is moving right now.  I can't even think about forgiving ISIS fighters for the horror they have done.  I want to kill them all, brutally.  But I'm not God.  I'm just a lowly prophet with anger towards evil.  I'm a Jonah where they are concerned.  The idea that Father would redeem, forgive, restore and use them for good is hard for me.  I want my squash vine.

Yet there is a move afoot that is totally focused on the Love of God toward all.  It is being rejected by many just as I might struggle with God's love towards evil murderers.  I know this is true, it is happening.  We may not love one another, but we have this in common, God love ALL of MANKIND without reservation, and Jesus came to forgive the whole world's sins.. even those of ISIS.  They may die before entering into that forgiveness.. but it is available.

He brings us to repentance and a turn away from dead works.  It is time to get in tune with what God is doing.   Show the love of God, even if we have a hard time.
