Book Review:
They Shall Expel Demons

Reason for writing: “First, some people are under demonic oppression who do not know how to get free and are enduring the various degrees of torment that demons inflict. In some cases, the mental, emotional and physical torment is as severe as that of people imprisoned and tortured in totalitarian prison camps or gulags. I sincerely believe that it is the purpose of Jesus, through the Gospel, to offer hope and release to such people.

Second, there are those who have been called to the ministry of the Gospel but who are sometimes confronted by people who need desperately to be delivered from demons. Yet nothing in their background or training has equipped them to provide the kind of help that is needed so urgently.”

Derek Prince: Must Cast Out Demons

Derek Prince: Let me say, as graciously as possible, that evangelism that does not include the casting out of demons is not New Testament evangelism. I will take this a step further and apply it to the ministry of praying for the sick. It is unscriptural to pray for the sick if one is not prepared also to cast out demons. Jesus did not separate one from the other.

Presidential Changes

I have enjoyed President Trump’s changes that he has made in America. I appreciate and respect the stand of boldness and strength that he has stood in representing our country as being strong.

I have not enjoyed listening to him talk, but I believe the Lord has guided him to accomplish things our country needed. And now, coming up soon, we will have a new President and it is our duty to pray for him also. Not only pray for him, but to have faith concerning him. Have faith in God who reserves the right to control the king.

Do not take chances with the anointing of God on your life to join the belching naysayers who criticize and belittle the president in office.

Be blessed… the Kingdom of God will never fall.

Grandma on scribes…

Grandma on Scribes
Hey

The Lord gave me a word and vision to tell me what He wanted. I knew it was Him, and knew a little of what He meant. But, when I was reading on Sandy Warner’s new board that her mother is a prophetic scribe by calling, I felt it to be good with the Lord to ask some questions for further understanding.

Below are the emails that Sandy’s mother and I wrote back and forth, edited just a bit for forum posting of instruction.
I know there are others who are called to be ‘prophetic scribes’ and I pray that this will help you to better understand also.

God be praised in all things.

This post is from back in 2004

Grandma Anna,

I am seeking a fuller understanding concerning my call. If you will indulge me, I will post what I received from the Lord a couple of weeks ago.

Vision:
In the Spirit, I saw a man standing front of me holding a thick book about 3/4 of the way open.
He was dressed in a white robe (like a bishop, or Presbyterian minister would wear).
As he read it was revealed to me that he was reading:

Jer 12:5 If thou hast run with the footmen, and they have wearied thee, then how canst thou contend with horses? and if in the land of peace, wherein thou trustedst, they wearied thee, then how wilt thou do in the swelling of Jordan?
Jer 12:6 For even thy brethren, and the house of thy father, even they have dealt treacherously with thee; yea, they have called a multitude after thee: believe them not, though they speak fair words unto thee

Next scene:

I saw two swords swooshing through the air. One of the swords was just off of hot coal and still glowed red at the tip.
I heard, “The one from the fire is revelation.”
I then saw the sword be wiped down with a soft cloth, and near the handle, I could see the word “Eagle” being spray painted on it.

The other sword was also wiped with a cloth and along the edge, a black marker was used to draw a line just above the bottom cutting edge. I understood this sword to be “Logos.”

Then I saw the outer edge of the earth’s atmosphere glowing as a ring of fire.
I heard, “That is the home of the flaming sword.” Continue reading

Cindy Jocobs: Bearing Other’s Sickness

Possessing the Gates of the Enemy

Bearing Other’s Sicknesses
 
Over the past years we have received a number of sad reports from pray-ers across America. One of the saddest involved an intercessory prayer group leader who had become sick. As she prayed she felt that this sickness was not hers but that she was bearing it for another friend. She said openly that this sickness could not touch her because it was not real and was only something she was carrying for the weaker person. As time went on, however, she got sicker and sicker. When finally she went to the doctor, she learned that she had an advanced case of diabetes. She was in such serious condition that the doctor could do nothing for her, and she died. This woman took on false burden-bearing and stepped into an area of presumption and deception that killed her.
In studying about this problem I reread a section in Norman Grubbs’ book on Rees Howells that shed some light as to where the idea that intercessors should actually take on another’s sickness might have developed. I share this not to attack a man whom I consider personally to be one of the greatest intercessors who ever lived but to make the point that although Rees Howells was a pioneer in the area of intercession, his explanation in writing might not convey exactly what the Lord meant when He spoke to him about “identification.”
Mr. Howells had already known something of the groanings of the Spirit in him for the needy and afflicted. . .. But what would it mean to intercede for a consumptive? As an intercessor, he must enter into the sufferings and take the place of the one prayed for. He knew that a bed- ridden consumptive could have no normal home life, was confined to one room, and was cut off from everything that once comprised the interests and pleasures of life. So during this time of “abiding” the Holy Spirit went much deeper in identifying him with the suffering of others. And as he did so, it was not just this one woman, but the consumptives and sufferers of the world whose burden came upon him.
