The power of your words – an unexpected result

Two years ago, I was called by man in our homecell group to assist his wife who was having a series of severe epileptic seizures. She had a history of epilepsy and was also a member of our homecell group, but something was particularly serious about the attacks that day.

 A bit of her history: She was born into a Hindu family and claimed to have been born again a few years previously, yet still had the Hindu shrines and artefacts in their house. Although she regularly attended homecell and visited my wife and me often to learn more about christianity, she often dominated meetings yet seemed to learn nothing.

 On the day in question, I went up to their house and sat beside her in the sitting room. The was incoherent, sweating profusely and unresponsive. I began to pray, but received no discernment regarding her condition. She started having another seizure and I placed my hand on her forehead. As a rule I avoid touching people, but I laid my hand on her to get a better idea of what was present.

 There was abosultely no response. It felt like I was touching a plastic dish. I could not even discern any lifeforce in her. I prayed that the Lord would reveal what was behind this strange phenomenon and He showed me a stage with a large purple curtain drawn shut across the front. This was coupled with the discernment that there was a deceiving spirit making out as if there was nothing there.

Annoyed, I said: “Get out of my way” and the curtain opened immediately to reveal seven demons in her. One was clearly a Hindu demon and, as I knew of her choice to hold onto Hinduism, I chose to counsel her husband and her when she had stabilised rather than cast out demons that she would allow back.

 After counselling, I went home and, as I came through the door, my wife was attacked by the epilepsy demon. With no history of any disorder, her neck started to pull stiff and her tongue felt like it was swelling. A called another believer and we prayed for an hour while my wife continued to resist.

 The demon released her and was banished from our home and family.

The believer and his wife went through three days of demonic visitations in their house and yet the lady chose to revert openly to Hinduism.

 Although this may not be viewed a s a successful deliverence, there is a lesson to be learnt about the power of our words and the need to be vigilant and careful when dealing with demons.

Whether you are in the deliverence ministry or not, constantly protect your home and family against demonic attack using the Blood of Jesus and establishing authority over your home and family.

Yours, in Jesus,
