I have been involved in several deliverance sessions. The first one was with a thirteen year old boy that was manifesting the demonic. What I mean by manifesting is that he was speaking in voices that were not his own. It was, needles to say alarming. I found myself in a closed room with two people who were used to such things – if any one can really get used to this sort of thing – and they began to pray over this boy, in hope of casting the demon that was residing in him. This kid had a sweat shirt on, with a hood. The hood was pulled up over his head. I was seated in a chair directly in front of him about ten feet away. I watched, much to my consternation as the boy’s eyes changed and became slits that glared at me with such unmitigated hate, that I was taken aback by it. I then experienced a wave of of mental images that were very upsetting. I felt as though I could barely think. I was overwhelmed with a fear and confusion. I thought I was more advanced spiritually and was up to confronting the demonic presence that was manifesting through this boy. I was wrong. I hadn’t prayed and fasted and had just walked into the room thinking that I would be an observer. I couldn’t have been more wrong. When “it” looked at me and then came at me in the thought realm, it was an experience I’ll never forget. It also taught me that to enter an encounter like this unprepared and off guard could be both physically and mentally damaging.
Yesterday I said that our weapons were not carnal. Indeed, as I found out so graphically that day, they are not. They are spiritual in nature and only when we put on the armor of God can we stand against the principalities and powers, in the unseen world that come against us. I bring this story to your attention because in some ways it mirrors what those who have been abducted relate to us. They too, speak of thoughts and images that invade their minds. I have stated that people who have been abducted have been able to stop their abductions by evoking the name of Jesus. While I was in that room, with that 13 year old boy who was manifesting, I was not prepared for what I encountered. I was caught with my guard down. I didn’t lean on the name of Jesus. I wasn’t prepared for battle. I learned from that day and now prepare before every interview I do with prayer.
I write and talk about the coming great deception. This deception, that of the UFOs revealing themselves and declaring that they are here to save us, and that they were our creators, is what I BLOG and write about incessantly. When they show up with all of their techno-marvels will we be caught up in the signs and wonders that will manifest? Jesus himself warns us, “Even the elect will be deceived, if that were possible.” With those sobering words, I would exhort us to stay ready and put on the armor of God that we desperately need in these last days.
