Breaking Strongholds

3 Feb

Satan's Strongholds
I learned “Caterpillars to Butterflies” by Evelyn Diment was a book to help those who suffer from past hurts, bondages and addictions. I knew the Holy Spirit lead me to find this little book and helped me to understand how we are fighting a spiritual battle. Ephesians 6:12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places.
When one is set free from bondage, filled with the word of God and Holy Spirit, it is easy to overcome temptations.
I pray sharing this will help others to overcome Satan’s strongholds.

Step 1: Pray this…

“Holy Spirit, please take over as counselor at this time and within these prayers. I am fully submitted to you.”

Step 2: Cleanse yourself before Jesus and repent. Meditate on 1st John 1:9.

“If we confess our sins, He is faithful and righteous to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”

Ask the Holy Spirit for understanding. Repeat this verse over and over until you have a clear understanding.

Step 3: Bind  Satan.

Matthew 16:18 and 19
(18) And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it.
(19) I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”

Matthew 18:18
“I tell you the truth, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.

Pray this…

“In the name of Jesus, who has given me authority to use His name, I bind Satan and the principalities and powers of darkness. I bind and cast down spiritual wickedness in heavenly places and render them harmless and ineffective against me and anyone I minister to today. I break the power of all assignments against us, making them null and void. I take authority over all evil spirits and render them deaf, dumb, blind and unable to manifest in any form or manipulate the person they are in. I paralyze them forbidding them to speak or tear the person; neither will they transfer onto me or anyone else. I command them to go directly to dark dry places and stay there in the name of Jesus. I command them to come out quietly in the form of yawns or breathing out.”

“I now ask you, Holy Spirit, to whom I am submitted, to take over as counselor, healer and deliverer, laying aside my flesh and any preconceived ideas, in Jesus Name.”

Always do steps 1, 2, and 3 before praying any prayers on this blog, especially if praying for others.

 Step 4: Forgiveness.

“Whenever you stand praying, forgive, if you have anything against anyone, so that your Father who is in heaven will also forgive you your transgressions. But if you do not forgive, neither will your Father who is in heaven forgive your transgressions.” Mark 11:25-26

 Pray the Lord’s Prayer forgiving those who trespass against you, so you may walk in the right standings with God.

“Our Father who is in heaven,

Hallowed be Your name.

‘Your kingdom come.

Your will be done,

On earth as it is in heaven.

‘Give us this day our daily bread.

‘And forgive us our debts, as we also have forgiven our debtors.

‘And do not lead us into temptation, but deliver us from evil.

For Yours is the kingdom and the power and the glory forever. Amen.” Matthew 6:9-13

Read this prayer out loud:

“Dear Heavenly Father, I come to you in Jesus’ Name, asking you to forgive me for holding grudges. I am sorry for the way I have acted and I rededicate my life to you today, Lord Jesus.

I ask you to come into my heart afresh today. Please forgive me for not living for you as I should have. I receive you afresh as my Savior, Healer, and Deliverer. I crown you king and Lord over every part of my life. I will live for You to the best of my ability from now on. Thank You for Your love and mercy. I renounce Satan and his demons; they no longer have a hold on me. I am under the blood of Jesus— MY LORD AND SAVIOR.

Today I choose to release the people on this list, not because I “feel” forgiveness or because they are right, but because I choose to be obedient to you, Father. I realize your ways are higher than my ways, and today I release them from my hurt, my disappointment, my resentment, my anger, my hate, my unforgiveness, and my bitterness, especially my parents and family, or anyone that I have made bitter-root judgements against. I release them from my judgement and plow up the ground where the bad seeds were sown, turn under those bitter roots, and plants new seeds of love, acceptance and forgiveness

I thank You that I can bind Satan and break the hold he had on me in regard to this matter and break his power over my life. I make null and void all things I’ve reaped from the past. I as i bind him according to Matthew 18:18, I know what I bind on earth is bound in heaven, and I command him to leave, in the Mighty Name of Jesus! Do not return. and now I loose the spirit of agape love and the compassion of Jesus as Spirit of Truth in my life to set me FREE!!!

Thank you, Lord. I will no longer reap from those bitter roots that I sowed. Please have those I have hurt release me also, Lord. I however, if you have anyone you specifically want me to contact, I will do it. Just bring them to my remembrance when I leave here today and I will either call, writer, or go see them. Tear up the paper and put it in the wastebasket. Cup your hands in front of you and say to the Lord:

Lord Jesus, here are the people I have hurt and the ones who have hurt me.I release them to you. I pray for those who have despitefully used me. I pray for my enemies as you have commanded and ask You to bless them and save them in Your precious Name. You say to cast my cares upon You because You care for me. Thank You, Lord. These people are no longer my problem; they are Yours! (Throw up hands to God and let them go!) Thank You, Lord for setting me free. Please heal me of my hurts in regard to these people. Please change my heart about them as only you can do!

Father God, I now release You of the things I have held against You. I’ve been wrong and I’m sorry. I know you are a loving, caring Father, and I am grateful for Your forgiveness. Because You have forgiven and released me. I can and do forgive myself! Hallelujah!”

Step 5: Rebuking evil and Healing prayers.

Prayer for Spiritual Housecleaning:

“Dear Heavenly Father, I come to you in Jesus’ name, recognizing you as my Lord, Savior, Healer, and Deliverer. You know all my problems—all the things that bind, torment, defile and harass me. Today I refuse to accept anything more from Satan, and I loose myself from every dark spirit, from every evil influence, from every satanic bondage, and from every spirit in me that is not the Spirit of God. I bind all these spirits up according to Matthew 18:18 where it says that whatever I bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever I loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.

I ask you, Father, to forgive me for allowing these spirits to manifest in my life and to use my body for their home. I purpose in my heart to serve you from now on.

Satan, I rebuke you and all your evil spirits. I renounce any occult activities I’ve been involved in and renounce these strongmen and curse their fruit in me as Jesus did the fig tree. Right now I bind up and command these strongmen and their fruit to go directly to dark, dry places and stay there in Jesus’ Name. Jesus has given me authority to use His name, which is above all names.

  • I now command the spirit of divination
  • Familiar spirits
  • Spirit of jealousy, anger, and unforgiveness
  • Lying spirit, guilt, self-condemnation
  • Perverse and unclean spirits – pornography and lust, homosexuality, fornication, and adultery
  • Spirit of homosexuality, gay, and lesbian lifestyle
  • Spirit of haughtiness (pride)
  • Spirit of heaviness, depression, and oppression
  • Spirit of whoredoms – gluttony
  • Spirit of infirmity, sickness, and disease
  • Dumb and deaf spirit
  • Spirit of bondage (especially addiction to drugs, alcohol, and cigarettes)
  • Spirit of witchcraft and rebellion
  • Spirit of lethargy
  • Controlling spirits, judgmental critical spirits
  • Spirit of fear, anxiety, tormenting driving spirits
  • Seducing spirits
  • Spirit of antichrist
  • Spirit of error
  • Spirit of confusion
  • Spirit of death (self-destruction) and all their fruit to GO.”

Take a deep breath and say, GO…GO…GO!

 Prayer for Healing:

 “In Jesus’ name, I now call these spirits to come in and fill me to overflowing with God and His love. I loose upon myself the Holy Spirit and all His gifts:

  • The Love of God
  • The spirit of Truth to set me free
  • Power, love, and a sound mind
  • A good and excellent spirit
  • The spirit of purity
  • A humble and contrite spirit
  • The spirit of holiness
  • the joy of the Lord
  • the garment of praise
  • The oil of gladness
  • The comforter
  • The gifts of healing and miracles, for by His stripes i am healed
  • The spirit of adoption
  • God’s wisdom, knowledge and understanding
  • The Spirit of life, for no weapon formed against me will prosper

What I have loosed on earth is loosed in heaven, and I call my body into chemical balance. Thank You, Lord. *(There will be now withdrawals or D.T’s; it will be as if I never drank or used.) I speak to my thyroid and command it to function properly. I speak wholeness to my metabolism and my hormone balance. I command my immune system to function properly and my white cells to rise up and defeat and sickness in my body and mind today.

In the Name of Jesus I command the pituitary gland to restructure the signals to my body, and for all the organs and glands and tissues to respond and to restored to the perfect order of God. I thank You, Father, for Your special touch now upon me (or this Brother or Sister, if you are ministering to someone else) this very moment. In Jesus’ name.”

Now repeat the rest of the prayer out loud:

“Thank you, Father, for setting me free. I confess that my body is the temple for the Holy Spirit; I am redeemed, cleansed, sanctified, justified, healed, and delivered by the blood of Jesus. Therefore, Satan, from this day forward you have no place in my and no power over me, through the blood of Jesus.”

Step 6: Armor Up! Prayer for protection:

“Lord Jesus, I am strong in You. I am strong in the power of your might. I put on the full armor of God and stand firm against the schemes of the devil. My struggle is not against flesh and blood. In the name of Jesus, I bind Satan and the rulers, and the powers, and the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. I render them harmless and ineffective against me and my loved ones. I resist you, devil, in the name of Jesus, and I stand firm.

I stand firm, having girded my loins with truth- the truth of God that sets me free. I have on the breastplate of righteousness that covers my body, my heart, and vital organs and shows that I am in right standing with my God! My feet are shod with the preparation of the Gospel of Peace, and I take those feet and tread on serpents and scorpions, for I have all power over you, devil! I take the shield of faith and extinguish every fiery arrow of you, devil!
I take the helmet of salvation and cover my head securely, for I have the mind of Christ. The only Spirit I hear is the Spirit of the living God that lives inside me and speaks to me from within. I take the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God, and pierce through your wicked plans, for it is written all I have to do is submit myself to God, and tell you to flee, and you have to go! So Go! In the name of Almighty Jesus.”

Step 7: Praying Blessings over your life:

“I put the blood of Jesus over me, my family, my home, my ministry, my place of employment, my bank account, my debts, my car and possessions– all of which belong to God– and I serve notice that your power is broken, devil, over me and mine, in Jesus name. Thank you, Father. Now I can go teach, preach, or minister to whomever you send my way… Praise Jesus… Glory!”

John 8:32

Prayer For Those in Sutherland Springs,TX

8 Nov

Sutherland Springs First Baptist Church VictimsTexas experienced the worst mass shooting on Nov 5, 2017 in a small christian church located in the small town of Sutherland Springs. There were twenty-six victims and many were children.

Prayer for those in Sutherland Springs, Tx

Prayer
Lord, we pray for all those who have lost friends and loved ones in the Sutherland Springs First Baptist Church. May You wipe away their tears and bring comfort to their broken hearts. Lord, we ask for healing of all those injured in body and spirit. May Your name be glorified by the salt and light these beautiful children of God exemplify.
In Jesus All Mighty name, Amen

Sutherland Springs, Texas

This is the video shared on you-tube the week before the shooting. It is heartbreaking, but it shows the Love in the little church. They started off singing “Happiness is the Lord”.

One Week Later
The little church was turned into a beautiful memorial to honor the victims. It  was repainted and restored, chairs with roses were placed where each victim was found.

Apologist Nabeel Qureshi Found Jesus

19 Sep

 

Christian apologist, Nabeel Qureshi, is resting with the Lord.

Nabeel Qureshi (1983-2017)

Nabeel Qureshi born in America was a devout Pakistani Muslin who shared his testimony in his first book published in 2014 called “Seeking Allah, Finding Jesus”. It became a New York Times best-seller and was awarded the Christian Book Award for both “Best New Author” and “Best Non-Fiction Book” of 2015. In March 2016 his second book was published, “Answering Jihad: A Better Way Forward” then five months later his third book came out “No God But One: Allah or Jesus? A Former Muslim Investigates the Evidence for Islam and Christianity.”

I would watch and listen to his videos and I was so inspired by his teachings that I even added a few to a blog called
Is Allah and The God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob the Same God?

Why Nabeel Qureshi Questioned His Muslim Faith 
http://cbn.com/tv/embedplayer.aspx?bcid=3945528870001

In 2014 tweeted~ “I left Islam because I studied Muhammad’s life. I accepted the Gospel because I studied Jesus’ life.”

Sadly Nabeel passed away September 16, 2017 after a year long battle with stomach cancer at the age of 34. He left behind his lovely wife and precious little daughter. His goal was not to condemn, but to see Muslims come to faith in Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.

This was Nabeel’s final video and he urged Christians not to use the truths he taught about Christianity and Islam as weapons. Nabeel said “When we talk to people about our beliefs, we should do it through a lens of love,”. I know he is in the loving hands of Jesus and my prayers are with his little daughter, wife, family and friends. May the Lord continue to use him to touch hearts and share the Lord’s truth.

Dear Heavenly Father,
As American citizens we confess our sinful condition as a nation and pray for forgiveness and mercy. We pray President Donald Trump will turn to You for Your spiritual guidance as he leads our nation in the days to come. Send him advisers that will be a reflection of You and fill him with Your spiritual wisdom and discernment to solve our nation’s problems, our social and economic issues, and our foreign affairs. Hold Trump steadfast as he deals with the hostility of other nations that oppose the freedom this country stands for and our Christian liberty. Lord, capture Trump’s heart so that he will fear You more than man, and lead him to make policies that will bring glory to You. Place a hedge of protection over him and his family with Your full armor Ephesians 6~ the belt of truth, the breastplate of righteousness, the shoes of peace, the shield of faith, the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit. Lord Jesus, all authority has been established by You, so we pray for our chosen President Donald Trump and our leaders to implement godly solutions to difficult problems our nation faces. We pray You will find favor and bless this land. In Jesus Almighty Name, Amen!!!

1 Timothy 2:1-16

“I exhort therefore, that, first of all, supplications, prayers, intercessions, and giving of thanks, be made for all men; For kings, and for all that are in authority; that we may lead a quiet and peaceable life in all godliness and honesty” For this is good and acceptable in the sight of God our Saviour; Who will have all men to be saved, and to come unto the knowledge of the truth. For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus; Who gave himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.” 1 Timothy 2:1-6 ( KJV)

Pray For Our Nation~

2 Nov

With the election only a few days away, fasting and prayer is critical for our nation. Pray for our leaders, those running for office, and the people. Without our Lord there is no hope. On January 30, 1984 Ronald Reagan said “God’s most blessed gift to His family is the gift of life. He sent us the Prince of Peace as a babe in a manger. I’ve said that we must be cautious in claiming God is on our side. I think the real question we must answer is, are we on His side?” In 1983 Reagan wrote ” Abortion and the Conscience of the Nation”, he said we need to join in prayer to bring protection to the unborn. Prayer and action are needed to uphold the sanctity of human life. Reagan alluded to a book written by John Powell called “Abortion: The Silent Holocaust”.

The Full Armor of God

16 Aug

 ~Prayer For Protection~
Ephesians 6:10-20

Spiritual Warfare
Dear Heavenly Father,
I am strong in You and in the strength of Your might. I put on the full armor of You, so that I will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. For my struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the Heavenly places. Therefore, I take up the full armor of You, so that I will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm. I stand firm therefore, Having Girded My Loins With Truth, and Having Put On The Breastplate Of Righteousness, and Having Shod My Feet With The Preparation Of The Gospel Of Peace, in addition to all, I take up The Shield Of Faith with which I will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. And I take The Helmet Of Salvation, and The Sword Of The Spirit, which is Your word. With all prayer and petition, I will pray at all times in the Spirit, and with this in view, I will be on the alert with all perseverance and petition for all the Saints. Holy Spirit, pray on my behalf, that utterance may be given to me in the opening of my mouth, to make known with boldness the mystery of the gospel, for which I am an ambassador in chains, that in proclaiming it I may speak boldly, as I ought to speak.
In Jesus Almighty Name. Amen

 

Red Skelton’s Pledge of Allegiance

12 Aug
Red Skelton’s Pledge of Allegiance

January 14,1969

I have to say the first time watching this made me cry.
Pay close attention to his last line because what he said years ago is now happening and it is very sad.
Red Skelton July 18, 1913 – September 17, 1997

As a kid I grow up watching the Red Skelton Show back in the fifties and sixties. For those who don’t know he was the funniest clown of all time.

Each show concluded with his trademark line: “Good night, and God bless.”
As a schoolboy in Vincennes, Indiana, one of Red Skelton’s teachers explained the words and meaning of the Pledge of Allegiance to his class. Skelton later wrote down, and eventually recorded, his recollection of this lecture. It is followed by an observation of his own.
I – – Me; an individual; a committee of one. Pledge – – Dedicate all of my worldly goods to give without self-pity.
Allegiance – – My love and my devotion.
To the Flag – – Our standard; Old Glory ; a symbol of Freedom; wherever she waves there is respect, because your loyalty has given her a dignity that shouts, Freedom is everybody’s job.
United – – That means that we have all come together.
States – – Individual communities that have united into forty-eight great states. Forty-eight individual communities with pride and dignity and purpose. All divided with imaginary boundaries, yet united to a common purpose, and that is love for country.
And to the Republic – – Republic–a state in which sovereign power is invested in representatives chosen by the people to govern. And government is the people; and it’s from the people to the leaders, not from the leaders to the people.

For which it stands

One Nation – – One Nation–meaning, so blessed by God.
Indivisible – – Incapable of being divided.
With Liberty – – Which is Freedom; the right of power to live one’s own life, without threats, fear, or some sort of retaliation.
And Justice – – The principle, or qualities, of dealing fairly with others.
For All – – For All–which means, boys and girls, it’s as much your country as it is mine.

And now, boys and girls, let me hear you recite the Pledge of Allegiance: I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic, for which it stands; one nation, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all. Since I was a small boy, two states have been added to our country, and two words have been added to the Pledge of Allegiance: Under God.
Wouldn’t it be a pity if someone said that is a prayer, and that would be eliminated from schools, too?
