Dear Friends of Jesus,
The Biblical pattern for signs and wonders is found in Acts 14 where it is written, “So Paul and Barnabas spent considerable time there, speaking boldly for the Lord, who confirmed the message of his grace by enabling them to do miraculous signs and wonders.” The preaching and teaching of God’s WORD is to come first and God will confirm His WORD with signs and wonders. In Mark 16 it is recorded, “Then the disciples went out and preached everywhere, and the Lord worked with them and confirmed his word by the signs that accompanied it.”
Two nights ago I preached the gospel to many thousands and last night, at our Church of the Cross public deliverance meeting in Waco, I taught from the Scriptures and God was pleased to confirm His WORD with miraculous signs and wonders. As often the case our small conference room was filled with capacity (actually a few more chairs were brought into the room to accommodate) and families and individuals traveled long distances to attend our service.
After praise and worship, for about an hour I taught from the Scriptures and led the Body to participate in the sacrament of Holy Communion. After leading the group in Communion we began the public deliverance session and many demons manifested within those in the meeting hall. One evil spirit named, Sorcery, was quite aggressive and strong. He surfaced within a young man who traveled with his mother and sister to obtain liberation from the powers of the devil. God did not disappoint.
This demon of sorcery was violent right at the beginning pushing my friend pastor James Beason into the wall. As James restrained this man the demons growled at me with murderous intent and rage. His teeth were clenched, his fists closed and his body tense, he lunged at me a few times attempting to kill me. With the use of our authority in Jesus, holy water, anointing oil, a crucifix, and the Scriptures we weakened the satanic spirits hell bent on destruction. It is remarkable to see –the demons, at first, were quite arrogant and strong but by the time we utilize the spiritual weapons against the spirits they simply faded into weakness. Though at the beginning the spirits were vicious and fought against us. It was extremely physically but within a few minutes the demons were sitting in a chair defeated. Yet, they mustered enough strength to war against us one final time by not revealing their rights to the man.
I called forth the holy angels of God and they immediately surrounded this young man’s demons and I asked the holy angels of God to draw their swords and to strike this vile spirit. As the angels pierced the demons, the demons screamed in agony and collapsed to the ground in utter defeat as they could feel numerous swords striking their very being! As we helped this young man up in his chair, we led him into some prayers of repentance and we commanded the demons to repeat these words: “WE NOW, IN THE NAME OF JESUS, TO THE PIT.”
As those words were repeated the demons quickly departed and the young man smiled with a beautiful joyful smile. He had been delivered by Jesus!
He shared with everyone, “I’m very surprised that these demons were within me.” He was surprised as he had been faithfully serving Jesus but he was vulnerable to the spiritual attacks of some sorcerers that were operating in a church that he had been attending. He has since left that church. He now wants to help others find deliverance in Jesus!
His precious 17 year old sister was also present and she manifested demons that caused her into her convulsions and the demons spoke out of her. There were spirits of trauma and anger residing within this teenager and confessed to holding onto parts of her broken heart! In the name of the Lord Jesus Christ we commanded the demons to let go her heart and we spoke to a little girl heart part that was extremely hurt, sad, and fearful. However, our holy Savior visited this little broken part of her heart and brought deep healing. We then proceeded to deal with the demonic beings that had been enslaving this little one. They battled James and I but eventually they too were cast into the pit! Not only was this teenager free but also experienced deep healing from a broken heart! Jesus heals broken hearts! Amen!
Another woman in her 60’s manifested evil spirits that had traveled through her ancestral bloodline as a result of Native American Indian rituals that her ancestors had participated in. The spirits even spoke in what sounded to be like a Native American Indian tongue. After the commanding the demons to speak English, the spirits ceased from speaking in this other language.
“We’re Infirmity and we are in her blood,” the demons revealed to me as they spoke out of her in English.
Not only were her ancestors involved in raw paganism they also delved into human and animal sacrifice. They confessed to having brought arthritis (as they confessed this they began to twist and disfigure her hand), mind control and bringing various other infirmities. I commanded the demons to take upon all of the infirmities upon themselves and to release this dear saint. Not only were there spirits of infirmity but they were also spirits of fear and murder residing within her body. All of them were cast out in the name of Jesus. This dear lady who had been called by our Lord into ministry testified of feeling much better and we thank God for His mercy in her life!
There were others that experienced liberation including a young woman who was involved in the occult. This deliverance was also quite physical. Many satanic spirits were cast out of her. Pastor James and I also ministered to a young family that testified of feeling spiritual release including one teenager whose father was involved in Hinduism.
For many hours –deep into the night– we ministered to those whom assembled and the Holy Spirit prevailed! Unfortunately, there were other spiritual needs to be met but we literally ran out of time and we were only able to get through, perhaps, one doorway that leads to demons out of more then 20 doorways I wanted to discuss. I wanted to get everyone to close these doorways but because of the immediate needs of the people were not able to get to the list of doorways. Irregardless, souls were healed and delivered by the power of God.
