“Why do you believe?” – Recruitment Strategies from Unbelievers

Hello People!

Today, I want to talk about “remaining grounded in your faithWhen I was in middle school, I had just gotten saved after my mum gave me some books regarding spiritual warfare because when I was growing up, I faced many battles with sickness and spiritual oppression from forces I could not see (eg, my body would twist on its own in an attempt to snap my neck and there was a time I was about to completely levitate off my bed but I had to fight what I could not see with all my strength that I became so emotionally, spiritually and physically drained from fighting something I could not see all night long).

I was seemingly in a trance state when this had happened and fortunately, my late grandmother had come into the room completely freaked out and shouted at me saying “What are you DOING???!!!!”. At that point I snapped out of it and saw that I had a kitchen knife pointed to my chest and my grandmother was definitely freaking out on me. She seemed calm initially but I knew that she was totally angry with me and told me to “Put that knife down!” with an authoritative voice that I was so scared that I did what she asked me to do. For the life of me, I don’t even know how I got to the kitchen since my bedroom was located on the second floor of the house. I thought I was going to get a smack down but she came and hugged me and drew me away from the kitchen. I guess she knew that there was something spiritually wrong with me at the time because a lot of bizarre things would happen to me that she monitored me a lot. I didn’t know what was going on, but that is why knowledge is power. If I had known what I know now, I think I would have suffered less back then.

These types of things used to happen to me when I was living in Kenya. And that is where I realized I had developed a strong spiritual sensitivity to things that were going on around me. I had extremely sharp discernment as a child because I could literally see evil spirits operating in some people, but at that time, I didn’t know what it was that I was seeing because I lacked knowledge. All I know is that these spiritual attacks that I experienced helped me strengthen my ability to be able to tell the difference between genuine individuals and evil individuals (this is called discernment).

I think that the Lord allowed me to go through this hell so that I could sharpen my discernment for the future. So when I see a movie like The Exorcist and all of that, I sympathize with the demoniacally oppressed girl, because to some extent, I was going through similar things. Sometimes I would faint, feel confusion, puke blood or have difficulty sleeping because I would be oppressed all night long from a force I could not see. These oppressive experiences affected my ability to concentrate and would sometimes leave me feeling “zoned out”. To the undiscerning individual, I may have just appeared to be lazy or something, but I was physically, spiritually and emotionally exhausted from fighting all night long with something I could not see. I ended up being pretty suicidal too because I wanted all of this oppression to end but I didn’t know how to end it. This is why it is important to gain knowledge about the things you do not know because it will preserve your life. If I had not received the answers concerning why I was being oppressed by spiritual forces I could not see as soon as I did, I think I would have ultimately committed suicide just to end the torment and some of you wouldn’t be reading this blog, you’d be reading an epitaph, but praise God, that is not the case 😀 .

My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge. Because you have rejected knowledge, I also will reject you from being priest for Me; Because you have forgotten the law of your God, I also will forget your children.

I praise God for blessing me with the answers that I needed at the right time through my mum at the time that I truly needed it, otherwise this post wouldn’t have existed. I guess that’s why I’m interested in deliverance ministry in particular. There are certain things that open doors for demonic oppression to operate in a person’s life. Some of these things could be from undeserved punishment (i.e. physical, verbal and/or sexual abuse), bloodline sins (i.e. if you have a history of relatives who practiced witchcraft, voodoo, wicca, the black arts etc), personal sins (willful disobedience – engaging in activities that could lead you to be oppressed such as abusing drugs, illicit sexual misconduct, illegal activities – stealing, murder, rape etc), all of these types of activities open doors for demonic oppression to operate in a persons life. If not on the primary offender, it can fall on the third and forth generation of the offender. This is called Iniquity.

you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me,

keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children and the children’s children to the third and the fourth generation.”

‘The Lord is longsuffering and abundant in mercy, forgiving iniquity and transgression; but He by no means clears the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generation.

you shall not bow down to them nor serve them. For I, the Lord your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children to the third and fourth generations of those who hate Me,

Sometimes people face spiritual oppression in their lives and in their homes undeservingly because they are simply unaware of the bloodline sins that have been passed down to them from generation to generation because of a sinful act performed by some relative in their past. Such sins don’t leave the generational line until it has punished someone. That is why REPENTANCE is key to an individuals deliverance from such spiritual oppression. You may not have been the primary offender that opened the door to such oppression, but it is important to seek the Lord to forgive your family for opening up any doors that lead any of your family members to be oppressed by forces that they cannot see in the first place.

James 5:16 [Full Chapter]

Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much

please let Your ear be attentive and Your eyes open, that You may hear the prayer of Your servant which I pray before You now, day and night, for the children of Israel Your servants, and confess the sins of the children of Israel which we have sinned against You. Both my father’s house and I have sinned.

Poverty is also a curse that can operate in a family line because of iniquity that has not been confessed to. Sometimes, people are unable to prosper because of certain curses still operating in their generational line. You go to work but you still can’t make enough and you’re constantly in an endless cycle of borderline poverty because something is capping your ability to prosper. These are also signs of a generational/bloodline curse(s) operating in your life. The only way to break from these curses is through the power of repentance.

Ask the Lord to forgive your family for any participation in anything that opened doors for curses to operate in your life. Ask the Lord to forgive from the third to forth generational line of curses so that your familial line is completely free from all the curses that have been passed on down the line and into your life. The Lord will deliver you and your household when you seek Him for divine restoration, forgiveness and order in your life. Renounce any participation known or unknown in the things of the occult, which also includes the reading of horoscopes, going to hand readings, participation using the Ouija board, using magic etc etc. All of these types of things open up unnecessary doors for hell to operate in your life. Repentance is the key to salvation. 

Image result for rebecca brown md booksI remember, when I lived in China, there was this art teacher that really wanted to recruit me into the “Ba’hai faith”. He didn’t like my so-called Christianity and faith in God so he often harassed me in the sense by mocking me of my faith in God and tried everything he could possibly do to shake my faith in God. A part of me was like “Listen buddy, if you’ve only known the hell I’ve been through and the deliverance I’ve experienced through the power of God, you’d understand why I believe the way that I do”. He was hell bent on shaking my faith in God but I stood my ground. It was kind of bizarre to me why he was so hell bent on shaking my faith. I couldn’t understand for the life of me why he was obsessed with me, because even a guy friend that I had in the same art class noticed this teacher’s strange behaviour towards me and thought I should “watch out”. That’s why I say to you parents, do not be passive and oblivious about the goings ons with your children. There are people out there targeting your children to lead them astray. You have to remain vigilant and teach your children to stay on the right path no matter how many people try to lead them astray. It is your responsibility to teach a child in the way that they should go so that they do not depart from it.

Train up a child in the way he should go, And when he is old he will not depart from it.

This Book of the Law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate in it day and night, that you may observe to do according to all that is written in it. For then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have good success.

Well I think I’ve written quite a bit today with respect to the topic of spiritual warfare. This is just some food for thought and if any of you have questions, please holla! If any of you would like some book recommendations on the topic of spiritual warfare, you can also holla! I have many book recommendations. I would definitely recommend Rebecca Brown MD’s Books He Came to set the Captives Free; Unbroken Curses; Prepare for War and Vessels of Honor. There are more books I could recommend but these were the first ones I read that spiritually empowered me to loose myself from the spiritual oppression I had experienced most of my life and would recommend these ones first to anybody. Happy reading and God bless everybody! 😀
