A young lady from London, England traveled last year to meet my wife and I for prayer — to find liberation from the evil spirits that have tormented her for years. My heart broke over the life she had lived — drug abuse, self mutilation, severe abuse, mental torment, Satanism, occult activity, communion with demons, and other evils. Though the evil was immense the grace of God was extended, in a loving manner, to this young lady.
For seven straight days the body of Christ battled the forces of darkness in the power of the Holy Spirit. We held nightly prayer / exorcism sessions for this young lady at the beautiful Mt. Olive Free Methodist Church in Dallas. For seven straight days, some of the sessions lasting late into the night, we battled the forces of darkness, each night evil spirits were cast out — many very powerful spirits that resisted (but not for long as God’s power overcame their strength).
The demonic powers would place this young lady in a trance like state and demons spoke out of her, often times in a strange voice unlike hers (some even growled and acted like an animal). Most of the time her eyes had rolled in the back of her head, we saw only the white — the demon looking at us.
Each night, it seemed as though we were dealing with stronger spirits then the night before but God was merciful and allowed us to minister to this young lady in love as we asked her to repent of the sins that allowed the various evil spirits access to her life. She did and God forgave her.
The evil powers named themselves and gave us the spiritual right they held unto in the lady’s life. This allowed us to systematically demolish the various strongholds that the demonic beings that built over the years. Glory to Jesus Christ of Nazareth.
The body of Christ at Mt. Olive Free Methodist Church stood in their Christ given authority and earnestly prayed for this woman’s deliverance. For 30 hours, over seven days, we battled and battled. We persevered. But we were not alone — God’s Holy angels arrived to the church and assisted us in battled. Allow me to explain…
Often times the demons would completely knock the young lady to the ground (even cause her to crawl around like an animal at times). In each instance, we commanded the angels to pick her up off the ground and in each instance the angels listened and obeyed our commands. The angels literally, without the aid of any human assistance, picked the body of the lady up off the ground and placing her in a position where we could minister to her. What an awesome display of God’s goodness and power! Many angels showed up and one angel actually appeared to the lady in the sanctuary.
The angels assisted in also restraining the demons, binding them, and holding them (as there were a number of times the demons attempted to force the young lady outside of the church). In several instances the demons did cause her to leave the church only for the angels to bring her back in by our commands in the name of Jesus.
What a good God we serve as He allows us to minister alongside His angels for His glory.
Then the finale was a few nights ago. For hours we battled and battled the evil forces that remained. Anointing oil, the Word of God (the sword of the Spirit), holy water, the sacred symbols of the cross, the blood of Christ, and consecrated materials were utilized to drive out the demons.
I also equipped the saints that were present. I wanted them to be a part of the work of the Holy Spirit, so I invited many of them to cast out the demons in the name of Jesus. I gently instructed the saints on how to minister to the young lady and they exercised their faith and their were RESULTS — evil spirits were cast out of the body in the name of Christ, our eternal God.
One of the saints present was a 10 year old boy who loves Jesus. He commanded two of the demons out. Other saints also participated and more evil spirits were cast out. This isn’t about Jay Bartlett — it’s about the body of Christ working together for the glory of God alone. The church was so encouraged and now desires to assist others whom are demonized.
Toward the end of our session the senior pastor and I dealt with the last evil spirit who threatened to kill me. It was an intense war — but the last evil spirit was driven out. Fifty-seven evil spirits were expelled, sins were renounced, emotional healing took place, and the young lady was instantly healed of various physical aliments.
Note: though many evil spirits were driven out, some more exist within her dissociative identities. But, these too, will be expelled in the name of Jesus.
