An Open Invitation to Demons - Oral Sex

In my initial walk with the LORD, the Holy Spirit taught me spiritual warfare and deliverance. Later He sent me to a Christian campground where He informed me that He would send a young lady to me. He did not tell me then what He wanted me to do with the young lady. So I just placed all my attention on worshiping the LORD.

One day my husband came to me and said that he wanted me to talk to this young lady regarding worship. I was so excited because I love to share with others what the Holy Spirit had taught me about worshiping until the Glory of God come forth. The next day the young lady showed up. When I saw her, the Holy Spirit spoke and said that He did not want me to talk with her about worship. He wanted me to cast a demon out of her. I immediately looked around and said, "By myself?" You see, I have never done this before. The Holy Spirit said, "Yes." So I said, "Okay, LORD. I will, but I do not want to see the demon manifest." The LORD then said, "My child, you do not need to."

I spoke to the young lady about what the Holy Spirit had shared with me regarding her deliverance. She confessed and admitted that it was true. I then proceeded at the instruction of the Holy Spirit to take her behind the building. I then laid my hand on her belly and immediately these words came out of my mouth, "In the Name of Jesus of Nazareth, I command you to come out of her!" She coughed and the demon left her. The Holy Spirit then told me to tell her what she needed to do in order to stay free.

Later that day in the evening worship service as I was worshiping, I saw her coming toward me. Her teeth were rapidly biting down as though something was trying to get back in. As I was twirling around in worship, I lifted my hand toward her and she immediately fell under the power of the Holy Spirit. The LORD then told me to go and tell her these words. I told her that the demon had left, but he was trying to fool her in believing that he had not gone so that he could return. The LORD then revealed to me that in order for her to stay completely free that she needed to talk with her husband about their sexual acts when she goes back home. She needed to let him know that she could no longer live in disobedience toward God in performing oral sex at his request. When I mentioned this to her, all she could do was say that is true. She knew the LORD had revealed this to me because I did not know her and if I did, I certainly would not have known what her and her husband was doing in the privacy of their bedroom. She lived in Canada while I lived in the USA. That demon entered her through the sexual act of oral sex with her husband.

She gave me her telephone number and we communicated for several years. But due to moving here and there, I lost contact with her. I often think about her and desire to communicate with her again.

The Point: When the Holy Spirit teach us, He will certainly demonstrate what He has taught. Also, just because you're married, it does not mean the door have been closed to sexual demons. We were given a mouth so that we can talk, to eat food and to drink water. Using our mouth to perform sexual acts is an open invitation to demons.

African Pastor's Prayer

This written prayer is found among notes, papers and books by a young African pastor in Zimbabwe after he was martyred.


I’m a part of the fellowship of the unashamed. The die has been cast. I have stepped over the line. The decision has been made. I’m a disciple of His and I won't look back, let up, slow down, back away, or be still.

My past is redeemed. My present makes sense. My future is secure. I'm done and finished with low living, sight walking, small planning, smooth knees, colorless dreams, tamed visions, mundane talking, cheap living, and dwarfed goals.

I no longer need preeminence, prosperity, position, promotions, plaudits, or popularity. I don't have to be right, or first, or tops, or recognized, or praised, or rewarded. I live by faith, lean on His presence, walk by patience, lift by prayer, and labor by Holy Spirit power.

My face is set. My gait is fast. My goal is heaven. My road may be narrow, my way rough, my companions few, but my guide is reliable and my mission is clear.

I will not be bought, compromised, detoured, lured away, turned back, deluded or delayed.

I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice or hesitate in the presence of the adversary. I will not negotiate at the table of the enemy, ponder at the pool of popularity, or meander in the maze of mediocrity.

I won’t give up, shut up, or let up until I have stayed up, stored up, prayed up, paid up, and preached up for the cause of Christ.

I am a disciple of Jesus. I must give until I drop, preach until all know, and work until He comes. And when He does come for His own, He'll have no problems recognizing me. My colors will be clear!

The "Empty Seats" Syndrome

Syndrome =  A group of signs and symptoms that together are characteristics or indicative of a specific disease or other disorder. 
I was inspired to write this brief article after hearing a quote from Apostle Paul Wondracek, Pastor, Praise Church in Cary, North Carolina.  In his sermon, he said, "Empty seats speak louder than filled seats."   

When I heard him say those words, I was immediately reminded of three local assemblies in which my husband and I were lead by the Holy Spirit to be a part of for a season.  Each of them had one thing in common-empty seats.  At first I did not concern myself with the fact that the church had more empty seats than filled ones.  But as the pastor continued to minister the Word to us, it was as though those empty seats kept crying out to me for help.  About several months later, I finally asked the LORD for the reason that that local church was not growing.  It was in the Women's Intercessory Prayer that He answered me.  You see, even though the pastor, who was of Jewish descent, taught the written Word, he had a tendency to mention what theologians would say; and the LORD revealed to me that the church was controlled by a religious spirit.  The LORD also said that He would not send flock there to be taught by a religious spirit.  Therefore, the seats remained empty.  After the LORD exposed the stronghold of that local church to me, the pastor and the lady in charge of women's prayer began to control prayer and turned mightily against my husband and I.  This was my first experience with the "empty seats" syndrome.   

I will not go into details about the next two experiences, but will only name the strongholds.  They are a "spiritual clone" and a "spiritual bat".  All three of these local assemblies had one thing in common.  They all lacked corporate intercessory prayer.  Which resulted in only a few people showing up for services which caused more empty seats than filled ones.   

You may be wondering how can we avoid the "empty seats" syndrome in our local church.  There's only one way!  And it is through corporate intercessory prayer (which include men and women).  It is when the members of the Body of Christ come together and rely on the Holy Spirit working through them to make intercession.  This is the only way these strongholds can be pulled down in the local church.  Now I'm not talking about people coming together and praying what they think or feel they should be praying.  I'm talking about allowing the Intercessor, the Holy Spirit, to pray along with our spirit what He know should be prayed.  This is the ONLY way to rid the local church from the "empty seats" syndrome!  And it is ONLY by the Holy Spirit Who intercedes through and for us.  He knows the mind of God.  He knows EVERYTHING. 

Romans 8:26

Likewise the Spirit also helpeth our infirmities: for we know not what we should pray for as we ought: but the Spirit itself maketh intercession for us with groanings which cannot be uttered. 

If you are a pastor and it seems as though the "empty seats" syndrome is evident in your local church, please check the church's prayer gauge.  First of all, do you have corporate intercessory prayer (which include men and women)?  If so, are you allowing the Holy Spirit to make intercession or are you controlling the prayers?  The Holy Spirit's desire is to set your church free from the "empty seats" syndrome; but He can only do it as you allow Him.  He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches.

Shalom †
