Sin is a predator!

Genesis 4:7
Amplified Bible (AMP)
7 If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin crouches at your door; its desire is for you, but you must master it.

Temptation is not sin, nor are the voices of satan in the earth, able to force us to bow to him, or sin, in any way.

Not sure who this is for today, but, you are being sorely tempted. I am praying for you, to not, open the door to sin, for behind this temptation, a devil lurks, wanting to devour you, and your life. He wants you to become his slave – God wants you free to walk in love as His child.

1 Peter 5:8
Be well balanced (temperate, sober of mind), be vigilant and cautious at all times; for that enemy of yours, the devil, roams around like a lion roaring [in fierce hunger], seeking someone to seize upon and devour.

satan lion
He may be seeking, AS a lion, but there is only one lion, the LION of the tribe of Judah, Jesus our victorious king.

It’s all about who you gonna serve – satan wants you to bow, and brings temptation to snare you, to get you back into his service, for how well he knows:

Romans 6:16 (KJV)

16 Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey; whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?

Do not yield to evil!

You must prevail, no matter how great the desire may be!

Jesus knows, and understands to well:

Who in the days of his flesh, when he had offered up prayers and supplications with strongcrying and tears unto him that was able to save him from death, and was heard in that he feared;

You can make it through without sinning!

Jesus is the way and the waymaker!

1 Corinthians 10:13 (KJV)

13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.
faithful over temptation
Jesus is praying for you today, and so am I!

I did not say it was easy, but it is possible!

There is a place in Jesus of absolute victory, where instead of fearing the lion of satan that preys upon the weak, you become so strong in the Lord and the power of His might, that like David’s mighty men of old, you become a lion hunter!

And Benaiah the son of Jehoiada, the son of a valiant man, of Kabzeel, who had done many acts, he slew twolionlike men of Moab: he went down also and slew a lion in the midst of a pit in time of snow:

Benaiah did not fear the lion, or the adverse conditions of his snowy cold day, but he brought the battle to the lion, and killed it.

There are battles in our own souls every bit as savage as hunting a wild lion, things inside of us, temptations that we must hunt and kill, or they will kill us.
For if ye live after the flesh, ye shall die: but if ye through the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the body, ye shall live.

Mortify means to kill, deaden, and deprive of pleasure. Struggling with lust, pornography, alcohol, drugs, or other passions? There is power in the name of Jesus to kill those things, there is a life of freedom in the Holy Spirit.

We are warriors! More than conquerers in Jesus!

I am the storm
Let’s Pray:

‘Father, HELP! You see me, and what I face today. You are holy, and I want to do right. Give me grace to make it, and show me the way of escape you have promised over this temptation, today. I need you NOW Lord Jesus, to deliver me. Amen’


Where Do Ghosts Come From?


Ghosts and familiar spirits – Demons don’t die, so when a person dies, the demons that have been oppressing them or oppressing them, remain here in the earth. Because they knew the ancestor intimately, they were ‘familiar’ with them, and they disclose knowledge, only the deceased person could have known, supernaturally. This is where we ‘see ghosts’ or have ghosts appear to us in dreams, as past loved ones. This is why ghosts can stay in certain families, for they seek to propagate a generational curse upon that family line. All these curses can be broken through the power of Jesus blood, when we renounce ancestor worship, and receive the life of God.


Ancestors that have died, are gone, either to heaven or hell. The best way to honor them, is to serve Jesus in this generation, the only true path to our heavenly Father, the Great Spirit, our Creator. He forbids worship or seeking of familiar spirits, the ghosts of the past, and would have us seek Him, the Creator of all Life, today.

Leviticus 20:27
A man also or woman that hath a familiar spirit, or that is a wizard, shall surely be put to death: they shall stone them with stones: their blood shall be upon them.

As I read Napoleon Hill’s classic, Think and Grow Rich, I saw where Napoleon received much of his ‘leadership’ principals. He claimed to go into an empty room, and ‘invite’ the spirits of great deceased world leaders into the room around a table, and he would ask them questions. They would come, and I am convinced these ‘spirits’ were none other than ‘familiar’ demon spirits, devils that had operated in times past through the very people they now represented at that table. His leadership principals are pretty good though, I wrote an article on them, analyzing them Biblically:

God hates this practice, and expressly forbids it in His word. Just because we receive knowledge supernaturally, does not make it from God –

Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils
God commands us to stop messing around with demons.
Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.
There are many good books on exposing how these demon spirits work, the one I like the most is ‘The Bondage Breaker’ by Dr. Neil Andersen.
Depart ye, depart ye, go ye out from thence, touch no unclean thing; go ye out of the midst of her; be ye clean, that bear the vessels of the Lord
Just because someone is in ministry, and operating supernaturally, does not mean they are receiving ONLY from the Lord. I have seen ministers that are ‘in the Lord’ at one moment, then operating demonically the next.
Peter did it, and he walked in the very presence of Jesus on the earth! (Matt 16)
familiar spirits
I am not going to write a long article on this, there are many great books already written. Contact me if you would like a reading list.
Let’s pray:
‘Father, Jesus said I would hear His voice, and that You would direct my life supernaturally by Your Word and the Holy Spirit. In every area that I have received or am listening to demons, instead of you, please reveal it, so I can repent. Please forgive me, and my family for ancestral worship, and allowing demonic spirits into our geneology. I receive Your forgiveness, and plead the blood of Jesus over my family. By faith, I renounce every devil operating there, and command it to go. By faith, I break every generational curse upon our bloodline, and declare the Jesus has redeemed us from the curse. By faith, I loose the blessing of God into my family, and declare that as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord, and Him only. I ask and declare these things, knowing I am heard and answered, for I ask in the mighty name of Jesus. Amen.


Strife opens the Door to Demons…

Arguing, bickering, and strife opens the door of your home to demons.

James 3:4 But if ye have bitter envying and strife in your hearts, glory not, and lie not against the truth. 15 This wisdom descendeth not from above, but is earthly, sensual, devilish. 16 For where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every evil work.
If you want peace in your home, refuse to allow arguing, harsh words, bickering.
I heard of a minister with several hundred employees, that on the job application for employment, he insists ministry employees tithe at their local church, and understand that strife will terminate their employment, instantly.
I will not allow my children to argue and fight, and on one occasion, when they refused to stop, I put them on the front porch and told them they could not come back into the house until they stopped arguing and worked out differences.
In the realm of the spirit, strife opens the door to devils and every evil work. The kingdom of God, is righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit. If you want the kingdom of peace in your home, refuse to allow strife under your roof. Its all flesh, and pride anyway, for it is written:Proverbs 13:10

Only by pride cometh contention..
We are servants of Jesus, humble…
Let’s pray:
‘Father, bring Your kingdom in peace today to my home, and my heart. Do not allow me to enter into bickering, arguing, or strife, no matter what people do, in Your name I pray Lord Jesus, Amen.’

The Origin and nature of satan….

The Origin and Nature of satan

origin lightening


It seems, in our wonderful intellectual community, that we are encouraged to forget that there are actual spiritual beings operating in the earth, light and darkness, angels and demons, truth, and the father of all lies…


Today, we are going to look at the origin and nature of satan, and briefly introduce how he is presently working on planet earth, and that he ultimately is the reason bad things still happen to good people…


Deliver us from the Evil One


The Bible says that 2 Peter 1:3  According as his divine power hath given unto us all things that pertain unto life and godliness, through the knowledge of him that hath called us to glory and virtue:


One of the things we need to know about is satan. Let’s look at where he came from:


(Ezek 28:1 NIV)  The word of the LORD came to me:


(Ezek 28:2 NIV)  “Son of man, say to the ruler of Tyre, ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: “‘In the pride of your heart you say, “I am a god; I sit on the throne of a god in the heart of the seas.” But you are a man and not a god, though you think you are as wise as a god.


(Ezek 28:3 NIV)  Are you wiser than Daniel ? Is no secret hidden from you?


(Ezek 28:4 NIV)  By your wisdom and understanding you have gained wealth for yourself and amassed gold and silver in your treasuries.


(Ezek 28:5 NIV)  By your great skill in trading you have increased your wealth, and because of your wealth your heart has grown proud.


(Ezek 28:6 NIV)  “‘Therefore this is what the Sovereign LORD says: “‘Because you think you are wise, as wise as a god,

(Ezek 28:7 NIV)  I am going to bring foreigners against you, the most ruthless of nations; they will draw their swords against your beauty and wisdom and pierce your shining splendor.


(Ezek 28:8 NIV)  They will bring you down to the pit, and you will die a violent death in the heart of the seas.


(Ezek 28:9 NIV)  Will you then say, “I am a god,” in the presence of those who kill you? You will be but a man, not a god, in the hands of those who slay you.

(Ezek 28:10 NIV)  You will die the death of the uncircumcised at the hands of foreigners. I have spoken, declares the Sovereign LORD.'”


(Ezek 28:11 NIV)  The word of the LORD came to me:


(Ezek 28:12 NIV)  “Son of man, take up a lament concerning the king of Tyre and say to him: ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: “‘You were the model of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.

origin king of Tyre


(Ezek 28:13 NIV)  You were in Eden, the garden of God; every precious stone adorned you: ruby, topaz and emerald, chrysolite, onyx and jasper, sapphire, turquoise and beryl. Your settings and mountings were made of gold; on the day you were created they were prepared.

origin serpent Eden


(Ezek 28:14 NIV)  You were anointed as a guardian cherub, for so I ordained you. You were on the holy mount of God; you walked among the fiery stones.

(Ezek 28:15 NIV)  You were blameless in your ways from the day you were created till wickedness was found in you.


(Ezek 28:16 NIV)  Through your widespread trade you were filled with violence, and you sinned. So I drove you in disgrace from the mount of God, and I expelled you, O guardian cherub, from among the fiery stones.


origin fallen angel


(Ezek 28:17 NIV)  Your heart became proud on account of your beauty, and you corrupted your wisdom because of your splendor. So I threw you to the earth; I made a spectacle of you before kings.


(Ezek 28:18 NIV)  By your many sins and dishonest trade you have desecrated your sanctuaries. So I made a fire come out from you, and it consumed you, and I reduced you to ashes on the ground in the sight of all who were watching.

(Ezek 28:19 NIV)  All the nations who knew you are appalled at you; you have come to a horrible end and will be no more.'”


Notice here, the distinction in the word of God between the ruler of Tyre, and the king of Tyre. The ruler of Tyre was a man, that God was executing judgment upon, but the king of Tyre is Satan, the evil spirit that ruled through the man.


(Ezek 28:12 NIV)  “Son of man, take up a lament concerning the king of Tyre and say to him: ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: “‘You were the model of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty.


Satan was created perfect, wise, and beautiful.


(Ezek 28:13 NIV)  You were in Eden, the garden of God; every precious stone adorned you: ruby, topaz and emerald, chrysolite, onyx and jasper, sapphire, turquoise and beryl. Your settings and mountings were made of gold; on the day you were created they were prepared.


Obviously, the only man that was in Eden, was Adam. This passage is not speaking about a man, but an angel.


(Ezek 28:14 NIV)  You were anointed as a guardian cherub, for so I ordained you. You were on the holy mount of God; you walked among the fiery stones.


A cherub is a type of angel. At some point, I’ll teach a course on spiritology.


Basically, there are only four types of spirits, human, divine, angels and demons. Today we are speaking about demons, specifically, the devil.


(Ezek 28:15 NIV)  You were blameless in your ways from the day you were created till wickedness was found in you.


(Ezek 28:16 NIV)  Through your widespread trade you were filled with violence, and you sinned. So I drove you in disgrace from the mount of God, and I expelled you, O guardian cherub, from among the fiery stones.


(Ezek 28:17 NIV)  Your heart became proud on account of your beauty, and you corrupted your wisdom because of your splendor. So I threw you to the earth; I made a spectacle of you before kings.

We see this recorded again in the ministry of Jesus.


(Luke 10:18 NIV)  He replied, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven.

origin lightening1


(Ezek 28:18 NIV)  By your many sins and dishonest trade you have desecrated your sanctuaries. So I made a fire come out from you, and it consumed you, and I reduced you to ashes on the ground in the sight of all who were watching.


My wife Karen had a vision that needs to be recorded here.

In 1989, I had a vision of the enemy’s fall.  He and his angels approached the throne of God with swords drawn.  He wanted the Lord’s place by the Father.  The Lord asked him, “What do you want?”  The enemy replied, “I want your place.”  The Lord responded, “…but I created you.”  When the truth hit the enemy, his insides split. (This splitting reminded me of chromosomes dividing in a cell.)  The enemy did not want to accept the truth.  The Lord cast him from heaven in a bolt of light, casting him to the earth.  Then I saw the Lord reach His hand into Satan’s mouth and pull a fire out and spread it.


(Ezek 28:19 NIV)  All the nations who knew you are appalled at you; you have come to a horrible end and will be no more.'”


Again, we see satan described here in


Is 14:

We see, in this case, him ruling through a different man, the king of Babylon, rather than the king of Tyre:


4 ¶  That thou shalt take up this proverb against the king of Babylon, and say, How hath the oppressor ceased! the golden city ceased!

5  The LORD hath broken the staff of the wicked, and the sceptre of the rulers.


6  He who smote the people in wrath with a continual stroke, he that ruled the nations in anger, is persecuted, and none hindereth.


7  The whole earth is at rest, and is quiet: they break forth into singing.


8  Yea, the fir trees rejoice at thee, and the cedars of Lebanon, saying, Since thou art laid down, no feller is come up against us.

9  Hell from beneath is moved for thee to meet thee at thy coming: it stirreth up the dead for thee, even all the chief ones of the earth; it hath raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations.



origin hell

Notice Jesus Himself amplifies the final destination of satan and his angels:


Matthew 25:41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:



10  All they shall speak and say unto thee, Art thou also become weak as we? art thou become like unto us?


11  Thy pomp is brought down to the grave, and the noise of thy viols: the worm is spread under thee, and the worms cover thee.


This is the judgment on the earthly king of Tyre, now God begins to speak about satan, describing his pride…


12  How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!


13  For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:


14  I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.


15  Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.


origin hell1


16  They that see thee shall narrowly look upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms;


Notice here, how we, in heaven, in our glorified state, will view satan from glory, in amazement, that such a weak, miserable creature could have caused such death and destruction among the nations!


We, the church, the redeemed have authority over this devil, both positionally, and practically.


Positionally, because: Eph 2:6  And hath raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: 7  That in the ages to come he might shew the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus.


Then practically, for Jesus has commissioned us in the earth:


Mark 16:15  And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.


16  He that believeth and is baptized shall be saved; but he that believeth not shall be damned.


17  And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;


18  They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.


19 ¶  So then after the Lord had spoken unto them, he was received up into heaven, and sat on the right hand of God.


20  And they went forth, and preached everywhere, the Lord working with them, and confirming the word with signs following. Amen.


Let’s pick it up again in Isaiah,


v17  That made the world as a wilderness, and destroyed the cities thereof; that opened not the house of his prisoners?


We see another view of the fall of satan, recorded in Revelation chapter 12


(Rev 12:7 NIV)  And there was war in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought back.


(Rev 12:8 NIV)  But he was not strong enough, and they lost their place in heaven.


(Rev 12:9 NIV)  The great dragon was hurled down–that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.


Most scholars say this is the origin of demons, these fallen angels that fell from heaven when they lost this war in heaven.


(Rev 12:10 NIV)  Then I heard a loud voice in heaven say: “Now have come the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of his Christ. For the accuser of our brothers, who accuses them before our God day and night, has been hurled down.


origin accuser


(Rev 12:11 NIV)  They overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony; they did not love their lives so much as to shrink from death.


(Rev 12:17 NIV)  Then the dragon was enraged at the woman and went off to make war against the rest of her offspring–those who obey God’s commandments and hold to the testimony of Jesus.


The nature of Satan has not changed from his fall.


(John 8:44 NIV)  You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desire. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.


origin lies


He is a murderer and a liar.


(John 10:10 NIV)  The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy; I have come that they may have life, and have it to the full.


He comes to us to kill us, steal from us, and to destroy us.


Revelation 12:10  And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the  accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before our God day and night.


2 Corinthians 11:14  And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.


So, let’s get controversial here, and make some things plain. Satan is a mind blinding spirit, that creates brilliant lies, so that people will serve him.


2 Corinthians 4:4  In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them.


He was dethroned and defeated 2000 years ago when Jesus rose from the dead, yet he still seeks to rule over people.


How can he do it, when Jesus is undisputed Lord?


Through deception.

origin angel of light


God has still not taken away from people free will. People must choose to serve God, He will never force Himself upon anyone. Satan tries to force himself upon everyone.


What are some examples:


Islam – the prophet Mohammed claims that the angel Gabriel appeared to him, embraced him, and gave him the Quran.


Did an angel appear to Mohammed?


Most certainly, an angel of light, intent on controlling people and working out his murderous schemes throughout the affairs of men.


Islam has been a blood bath since its inception, and continues to attempt to dominate the affairs of humanity today. Of course it would for the dethroned, ‘god of this world’, satan himself, always seeks to rule the affairs of mankind.


If a Muslim should dare to attempt to leave Islam, to become a Christian, or to befriend a Jew, his own family will kill him. Sounds like control to me. Control through fear, by a murderer. Yet, in light of eternity, to die, is better than to go to hell…


Heb 2:14 ¶  Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part of the same; that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death, that is, the devil;


15  And deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject to bondage. Jesus will not only deliver you from death, but from the fear of death, if you trust Him!


The Virgin Mary – Throughout the centuries, an apparition claiming to be the mother of Jesus has appeared to many, in Lourdes, and now more recently Medjugorje, influencing millions to worship her. The Bible says that there is one true mediator between man and God, that is the man Christ Jesus. These apparitions are indeed supernatural, but are nothing more than the parading of this angel of light drawing people seductively away from God Himself. Could Jesus send His earthly mother back to earth, to turn people to Himself? Yes, He could, but His mother would never utter statements like: ‘My children, I need your prayers.”, She is not God, simply the earthly woman chosen by God the privilege of bringing God the Son into the earth – she herself needed Jesus as her Saviour: Luke 1:47 and my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour.

All have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God, Mary included. She, like each of us, needed Jesus as Saviour from her sins. If you really want to honor her, be like her in Acts 1:14 These all continued with one accord in prayer and supplication, with the women, and Mary the mother of Jesus, and with his brethren.

She was in the upper room with the 120, and was filled with the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in other tongues. You can be too! Here’s how:




Mt 24:24  For there shall arise false Christ’s, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.


origin false ministers


The Dragon – This is the symbol of China, and nation that forcefully rejects Jesus Christ and His Lordship.


origin dragon


Re 12:9  And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.


Hinduism – Where millions of deities are appeased through prayer and sacrifice. There are indeed supernatural manifestations that occur in this religion. Nothing more than the masquerading of Lucifer, the angel of light.


Witchcraft, the occult, Wicca, and White Magic – There is no such thing as white magic, that is magic that good. All manifestations of this are demonic, for God cannot perform in that which He expressly forbids. Deut 18:10  There shall not be found among you any one that maketh his son or his daughter to pass through the fire, or that useth divination, or an observer of times, or an enchanter, or a witch,


11  Or a charmer, or a consulter with familiar spirits, or a wizard, or a necromancer.


12  For all that do these things are an abomination unto the LORD: and because of these abominations the LORD thy God doth drive them out from before thee.


Familiar spirits – These are ghosts, or poltergeists that manifest themselves as deceased human beings. They claim to be the ghost or spirit of some loved one, and usually have disclosed some intimate knowledge that only the deceased person should have known. Yet, they are really demons, masquerading as humans. How do they know things about the deceased person?


Simple, they are familiar spirits, familiar with the thoughts and ways of the deceased person. In one personal encounter with a poltergeist, figurines were supernaturally hurled across the room before I commanded the spirit to leave. Ghosts can be commanded to leave haunted houses, and the property cleansed in the name and authority of Jesus.


Much has been written about Satan and demons, this is not the sole purpose of this article. Entire ministries have been raised up to deal with this important topic, on that comes to mind is Ellel ministries, and their book series entitled, ‘Healing Through Deliverance”.


Jesus said straight is the way, and few are they that find it. There is a ditch on either side of this study. On one side, some Christians avoid any study on the devil and demons, and therefore never cast out a devil, nor see freedom in many areas of life. On the other side of the road is a ditch, where one focuses totally on demons and demonic activity, attributing everything to a demon. I will include a few book titles that should be required reading for every Christian, for much of what has gone on in the name of God, is only satan doing his same old mess. You know, death, destruction, and theft, and then blaming God for it.


Demons can be attached to people, places, things and animals. Before we actually get into taking authority over devils, we need to see God’s order here.


James 4:7  Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.


  1.     We must be forgiven and then forgive.

Please read this:

2 Cor 2:10  To whom ye forgive any thing, I forgive also: for if I forgave any thing, to whom I forgave it, for your sakes forgave I it in the person of Christ;

11  Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices.

In this passage, as we discussed in the forgiveness teaching, we see clearly that unforgiveness in the life of a believer gives place to the devil.


  1.     We must renounce sin, and articles that give place to the devil and demons.


2 Corinthians 6:17  Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,

1 Peter 1:15  But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation;


1 Peter 1:16  Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy.


When I pastored, we used to do an event I called the “Fire of Holiness’ each spring, based on Acts 19.


19  Many of them also which used curious arts brought their books together, and burned them before all men: and they counted the price of them, and found it fifty thousand pieces of silver.


When I pastored, I would ask the congregation to do exactly what these early believers did. Having seen the power of God in demonstration, I would ask them to meet me the following week in a local park with all the stuff that Christians have no business having in their homes. You know, things like pornographic materials, love letters from someone other than your current spouse, horoscopes, demonic music and videos, books of false religion, illicit drugs, rabbits feet, good luck charms, fetishes, idols, even children’s toys depicting witchcraft and demonic things.


Then we would go to the local park and have ourselves a good old fashioned bonfire. Many proclaimed freedom from nightmares and horrible thoughts after burning and renouncing these things.


Seems that we can do this in Africa, where we direct confront witch doctors, and medicine men used to being able to move freely under demonic power. We demonstrate the power of Jesus Lordship in miracles, signs and wonders, and command them to have no other gods before Him. To renounce their allegiances to devils, by burning their fetishes, magic potions and books of spells, and it always works!


Yet, it seems America does not believe in devils anymore, and in many cases and places, they clearly run rampant across this land, uncontested by the victorious church of the living God!


We must bring what is hidden to light, if we love God’s people, who suffer secretly in their sin, sickness, and nightmares from real demonic entities: things that really do go bump in the night…

It is time for the Elijah’s and Elisha’s of God to rise up in the power of the Holy Spirit to boldly proclaim against the hosts of hell: ‘Where is the God of Elijah!’ demonstrating His power against the legions of hell seeking to destroy this generation!

Redeeming the Land



Redeeming the Land

I heard a testimony from a seasoned missionary, Rev Hank Hallas, who was led of the Lord to perform a ‘redeeming of the land ceremony’ over church buildings, and farms over in India. He had a revelation that the land itself, was defiled by sins of previous and current generations, and that the only cure for sin, was the blood of Jesus.

Rom 8: 19  For the earnest expectation of the creature waiteth for the manifestation of the sons of God.

20  For the creature was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who hath subjected the same in hope,

21  Because the creature itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God.

22  For we know that the whole creation groaneth and travaileth in pain together until now.



Rom 8: 19 For [even the whole] creation (all nature) waits expectantly and longs earnestly for God’s sons to be made known [waits for the revealing, the disclosing of their sonship].

20 For the creation (nature) was subjected to [i]frailty (to futility, condemned to frustration), not because of some intentional fault on its part, but by the will of Him Who so subjected it—[yet] with the hope

21 That nature (creation) itself will be set free from its bondage to decay and corruption [and gain an entrance] into the glorious freedom of God’s children.

22 We know that the whole creation [of irrational creatures] has been moaning together in the pains of labor until now.

23 And not only the creation, but we ourselves too, who have and enjoy the firstfruits of the [Holy] Spirit [a foretaste of the blissful things to come] groan inwardly as we wait for the redemption of our bodies [from sensuality and the grave, which will reveal] our adoption (our manifestation as God’s sons).

Heal our Land


A very familiar verse reads: 2 Chron 7:14  If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.


Seems that because of sin, the land itself needs to be healed.

Ps 106:38  And shed innocent blood, even the blood of their sons and of their daughters, whom they sacrificed unto the idols of Canaan: and the land was polluted with blood.

Joe 3:19  Egypt shall be a desolation, and Edom shall be a desolate wilderness, for the violence against the children of Judah, because they have shed innocent blood in their land.

Is 24:5  The earth also is defiled under the inhabitants thereof; because they have transgressed the laws, changed the ordinance, broken the everlasting covenant.

6  Therefore hath the curse devoured the earth, and they that dwell therein are desolate: therefore the inhabitants of the earth are burned, and few men left.

Heal Our Land!

Sounds like abortion, genocide, and atrocities, literally defile the land.

Yet, we are the sons and daughters of God for which all creation awaits!

Walking in faith, authority, anointing, filled with the Holy Spirit now, we exercise redemptive rights, and release authority, through forgiveness:

John 20:21  Then said Jesus to them again, Peace be unto you: as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you.

22  And when he had said this, he breathed on them, and saith unto them, Receive ye the Holy Ghost:

23  Whose soever sins ye remit, they are remitted unto them; and whose soever sins ye retain, they are retained.


My friend, mentor and adopted dad, Hank Hallas has a wonderful revelation of who we are in Christ, and as he goes to India, conducts a ceremony on lands owned by churches or church members. It goes like this:


He walks to each corner of the land, and prays: ‘Father, I ask that you would forgive every sin ever committed upon this land, all the way back to the time of Adam, and I declare they are forgiven, in Jesus name! I plead and apply the blood of Jesus here, and call this land into the kingdom of God, redeemed. I pronounce the blessing of Almighty God upon this land and owners home, and break any demonic activity present here, enforcing your kingdom Father, in righteousness (love), peace and joy, in you, mighty Holy Spirit.’

At each corner of the land he takes bread, juice (communion elements), and oil (symbolic of the Holy Spirit), and buries them at each corner, as a prophetic act that this property is blessed.


Remarkable testimonies have occurred. Households healed. Diseases stopped. Allergies end. Crops and animals supernaturally produce abundant harvests. Financial prosperity released. Nightmares stop, and people receiving restful sleep, peaceful dreams, and visions of Jesus and His kingdom. Areas where Hindus and Muslims had been burning churches, buildings and properties have been supernaturally protected in the midst of violence and mayhem.

prophecy testimony

Bill Winston ministered at Victory Christian Center here in Tulsa, OK on something similar. Reportedly, a senior in his congregation was troubled by a group of drug dealers and gangsters that sold drugs on the sidewalk in front of her house. She sought the Lord, and her pastor (Bill), for what to do. By the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, he felt impressed to tell her, to get a bottle of oil, and pour it out, a line down the middle of her street. She did, and pled the blood of Jesus over her property and street. Next morning, as usual, the gangsters and drug dealers showed up again, and immediately entered into a heated argument. They dispersed, and have never again returned to this woman’s house!

I have done this on my property, and we have never had a break in, nor has there ever been violence or a problem at my home, though we live in what is considered to be a rough neighborhood. You can have peace in your home, too!

Let’s Pray:

‘Father, I ask that you would forgive every sin that has ever been committed on my property, all that way back to the time of Adam. I plead and apply the blood of Jesus here, and I bless this property, and call it redeemed back into the kingdom of God, now, in the name and authority of the Lord Jesus Christ. I declare the kingdom of God in force and in place here, in righteousness, peace and joy in the Holy Spirit, in Jesus name! Amen’

Give in faith!

1 Corinthians 9:11 If we have sown [the seed of] spiritual good among you, [is it too] much if we reap from your material benefits?

1 Corinthians 9:14 [On the same principle] the Lord directed that those who publish the good news (the Gospel) should live (get their maintenance) by the Gospel.

Paul goes on to say, that he did not use his position as a minister of the gospel to take up offerings, rather he worked, making tents, to support himself. You might notice here, that Paul was not married, nor did he have children. Family responsibilities take time, and just as you bust a move on your job to provide for your family, I work every bit as hard, doing this, faithful to the Lord in prayer and the ministry of His Word, to you.

I will never charge for this: it my responsibility to God, my calling. Freely I have been given, now, I freely give…

As you give, hear Holy Spirit what to give, and honestly expect God to reward you for your giving.

Matt 10: 41 He who receives and welcomes and accepts a prophet because he is a prophet shall receive a prophet’s reward, and he who receives and welcomes and accepts a righteous man because he is a righteous man shall receive a righteous man’s reward. 42 And whoever gives to one of these little ones [in rank or influence] even a cup of cold water because he is My disciple, surely I declare to you, he shall not lose his reward.

I am a five-fold ministry gift and office – this is my life – I pray, I hear, I write, and wonderful things happen. You have your job description, I have mine – this is mine….

I have ‘see through’ faith for you, in this: Gal 3: 9 So then they which be of faith are blessed with faithful Abraham.

I believe I have a responsibility before God to be like Jesus, in every offering I receive. I receive it with thanksgiving, just like Jesus did the little boys lunch.

Then, because I walk and live by faith according to the blessing of Abraham, I believe that God will take your seed sown, and multiply it, according to what the blessing of Abraham promises:

Genesis 22:17 In blessing I will bless you and in multiplying I will multiply your descendants like the stars of the heavens and like the sand on the seashore. And your Seed (Heir) will possess the gate of His enemies

It has been a joy to me, to see the hand of the living God act in the lives of those of you who have supported us this year!

Many have seen tremendous blessing come into your households, and for this we give thanks, and give Jesus all the glory!



Balaam – Prophet for Hire!

Balaam - Prophet for Hire!


Okay, let’s look at this Bible character named Balaam, who is probably in hell today, to see if we can learn what not to do as leaders.

The Word of God is wonderful, in that it tells the truth, and we can learn from even bad examples, what not to do.

Ps 19: 8 The statutes of the LORD are right, rejoicing the heart: the commandment of the LORD is pure, enlightening the eyes….

11 Moreover by them is thy servant warned: and in keeping of them there is great reward.

Here we see the end of the story, Balaam the prophet, being killed by the people of God:

Numbers 31:8 And they slew the kings of Midian, beside the rest of them that were slain; namely, Evi, and Rekem, and Zur, and Hur, and Reba, five kings of Midian: Balaam also the son of Beor they slew with the sword.

Joshua 13:22 Balaam also the son of Beor, the soothsayer, did the children of Israel slay with the sword among them that were slain by them.

Question is, why did God have Balaam killed?

Num 13:
15 And Moses said unto them, Have ye saved all the women alive?
16 Behold, these caused the children of Israel, through the counsel of Balaam, to commit trespass against the LORD in the matter of Peor, and there was a plague among the congregation of the LORD.
17 Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him.

Numbers 31:16 Behold, these caused the children of Israel, through the counsel of Balaam, to commit trespass against the LORD in the matter of Peor, and there was a plague among the congregation of the LORD.

What was the counsel of Balaam?

Balaam doctrine

Jude 1:11 Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core.

Here we see the error of Balaam, and his motive. He was greedy, and sold out the gift of God for reward.

Revelation 2:14 But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication.

Yet, here, we see what he did, he counseled the enemy of God to tempt the people of God, to eat food sacrificed to idols, and to have sexual relationships out of marriage.

Numbers 25:1 ¶ And Israel abode in Shittim, and the people began to commit whoredom with the daughters of Moab.
2 And they called the people unto the sacrifices of their gods: and the people did eat, and bowed down to their gods.
3 And Israel joined himself unto Baalpeor: and the anger of the LORD was kindled against Israel.

Deuteronomy 23:4 Because they met you not with bread and with water in the way, when ye came forth out of Egypt; and because they hired against thee Balaam the son of Beor of Pethor of Mesopotamia, to curse thee.

Deuteronomy 23:5 Nevertheless the LORD thy God would not hearken unto Balaam; but the LORD thy God turned the curse into a blessing unto thee, because the LORD thy God loved thee.

Joshua 24:9 Then Balak the son of Zippor, king of Moab, arose and warred against Israel, and sent and called Balaam the son of Beor to curse you:
Joshua 24:10 But I would not hearken unto Balaam; therefore he blessed you still: so I delivered you out of his hand.

Nehemiah 13:2 Because they met not the children of Israel with bread and with water, but hired Balaam against them, that he should curse them: howbeit our God turned the curse into a blessing.

Micah 6:5 O my people, remember now what Balak king of Moab consulted, and what Balaam the son of Beor answered him from Shittim unto Gilgal; that ye may know the righteousness of the LORD.

2 Peter 2:15 Which have forsaken the right way, and are gone astray, following the way of Balaam the son of Bosor, who loved the wages of unrighteousness;

16 But was rebuked for his iniquity: the dumb ass speaking with man’s voice forbad the madness of the prophet.
17 These are wells without water, clouds that are carried with a tempest; to whom the mist of darkness is reserved for ever.
18 For when they speak great swelling words of vanity, they allure through the lusts of the flesh, through much wantonness, those that were clean escaped from them who live in error.
19 While they promise them liberty, they themselves are the servants of corruption: for of whom a man is overcome, of the same is he brought in bondage.
20 For if after they have escaped the pollutions of the world through the knowledge of the Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, they are again entangled therein, and overcome, the latter end is worse with them than the beginning.
21 For it had been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than, after they have known it, to turn from the holy commandment delivered unto them.
22 But it is happened unto them according to the true proverb, The dog is turned to his own vomit again; and the sow that was washed to her wallowing in the mire.

sow wallow

Jude 1:11 Woe unto them! for they have gone in the way of Cain, and ran greedily after the error of Balaam for reward, and perished in the gainsaying of Core.

Revelation 2:14 But I have a few things against thee, because thou hast there them that hold the doctrine of Balaam, who taught Balac to cast a stumblingblock before the children of Israel, to eat things sacrificed unto idols, and to commit fornication.

So, we see it. Balaam, the prophet, the one who heard and knew the voice of God, sold out his gift for money and position. It cost him his life, and he is eternally in hell today.

What he did is amazingly wicked!

Three times Balak hired him to curse the children of Israel, and 3 times, God flowed through him pronouncing a blessing instead of his intended curse. Had he been smart and righteous, he should have left Balak, and joined the people of God, and won every battle, and lived for God.

Yet, he got greedy. Obviously, the Midianites and Moabites had material wealth, and he wanted him some of it.

He was once a broke prophet, living peacefully in his hut, now he has kings knocking at his door.

So what does he do?

He knows that God is holy, and cannot lie. In fact, he had even prophesied it: Nu 23:19 God is not a man, that he should lie; neither the son of man, that he should repent: hath he said, and shall he not do it? or hath he spoken, and shall he not make it good?

no lie
20 Behold, I have received commandment to bless: and he hath blessed; and I cannot reverse it.
21 He hath not beheld iniquity in Jacob, neither hath he seen perverseness in Israel: the LORD his God is with him, and the shout of a king is among them.
22 God brought them out of Egypt; he hath as it were the strength of an unicorn.
23 Surely there is no enchantment against Jacob, neither is there any divination against Israel: according to this time it shall be said of Jacob and of Israel, What hath God wrought!

Do you see it?

God was with Israel! His manifest presence, His glory, His power, His blessing, His anointing, and surely the host of heaven, angel armies protecting His people.

angell armies

Yet, in this verse we see why.

The children of Israel are living according to the law of God. They are fully separated unto Him, so that the prophet, by the Spirit of God proclaimed: ‘He beheld no iniquity in Jacob, nor has he seen perverseness in Israel’

Holiness produced power!

Fully obedient people, were met, blessed, protected, delivered and prospered by the person and presence of the living God, Creator of heaven and earth!

Here is where amazing wickedness occurred:

Balaam knew God, and knew His word. He saw this by the Holy Spirit, and knew that the people of God, with God, were unstoppable.

So what does he do? He counsels Balak, to throw a party for the men of Israel. Get your best delicacies cooking, and the prime cuts of meat that you have sacrificed to your gods, demon spirits. Then, get your women dressed seductively, and have them seduce the men of God, and have sex with them.

When you do, God Himself will withdraw from His people, and will destroy them Himself.

This he did, and Scripture records:

Number 23: 16 Behold, these caused the children of Israel, through the counsel of Balaam, to commit trespass against the LORD in the matter of Peor, and there was a plague among the congregation of the LORD.

Now, what are we to learn from this today?

We, that bear the holy offices of God, five-fold ministry gifts, set into the earth to train, equip, and edify the people of God, the Body, the Bride of Christ.

Well, we are to prepare a holy bride for Jesus: one without spot or wrinkle.

Jas 4:4 Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.

2Co 6:17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you,

and having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.

God is still holy, and again I find myself stuck on this theme.

I am convinced that a holy, obedient people, in the hands of our God is unstoppable.

Strong, healthy, wealthy, blessed, joyful, loving, victorious in the trials of life!

Yet, how many of us fail the money test?

We get an extra couple of dollars, and we spend it watching a worldly movie, or attending a worldly event.

We say: ‘Father, if You give me an extra $50 this week, I will spend it on (missions, orphans, our ministry building program, or whatever financial need is before us in the kingdom), yet we flunk the prosperity test.

God gives the money, and instead of using it for the work of God, we go out whoring with the world.

Does God give prosperity?


Deut 8:18 But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day.


Money with a mission, wealth given to establish His covenant in the earth, or in this dispensation, the gospel.

Mr 4:19 And the cares of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, and the lusts of other things entering in, choke the word, and it becometh unfruitful.

Ro 13:14 But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.

Ga 5:24 And they that are Christ’s have crucified the flesh with the affections and lusts.

1Ti 6:9 But they that will be rich fall into temptation and a snare, and into many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.

Do I preach prosperity?


I cannot see in the word of God, anywhere that people of God, fully serving God, were not prospered.

Yet, beware the sin of Balaam.

That is compromising the Word of God, in any area, for financial gain.

To whom much is given, much is required.

In my life, I have withdrawn for many great business opportunities, simply because I do not feel strong enough in my office and calling, to take the chance of mixing ministry and business. I fear God, and seek purity of heart and holiness, and I am coming out of the business world, having stepped again into full time ministry.

My message will always be, holiness unto the Lord, be pure, and ALL IN, 100% sold out to Jesus, without compromise. I will use all of my position,, influence, words, wealth, and teaching to promote only the cause of Christ, for I feel that the time is short, and there is no time to do anything else in these last days.


Yet, I have seen the sin of Balaam at work, yea even here in Tulsa, Oklahoma, bless the holy city.

I drove a friend home from Friday night prayer one night, and he lives in an apartment complex, known for weekend partying and gang activity. This man is sold out for Jesus, and is doing great things in reaching people with the gospel. As we drove, he shared his vision of raising up a strong ministry in the North side of Tulsa, to reach youth for Christ.

When we pulled into his parking lot, full of the Holy Ghost and fire, I rolled down my window as four youth with a case of beer on one guys shoulder, were approaching the truck, obviously on their way to party somewhere. So, I called out to them: ‘Hey, my friend and I were talking about getting some sort of ministry going around here, that would be relevant to your lives, to reach you for Jesus, what do you think would work?’

Now I wouldn’t try this approach in an area other than Tulsa, where there are 1400 or so churches, and many Christian television and radio stations. You would think that everyone here, has at least heard the gospel, once.

Well, one of the guys, kind of gave me a dirty look, and kept walking, but the two girls with them approached the truck. One of them sat cross legged on the ground beside my driver’s window, and we began to talk.

She said: ‘Are you serious? Do you really want to know what it would take?”

I said, ‘Yes, tell me sister!”

She said, ‘I am 19 years old, pregnant with my third child. The first two children are from youth pastors who I slept with, who will not admit we had sex. I’m not saying that what I did was right, but if you want a ministry to reach youth here, in this community, you gotta solve the zipper problem with most of the ministers.’

Ah, the old fashioned Billy Graham statement comes alive:

‘As a man of God, don’t touch the girls, the gold, or the glory!’

whole world

Charisma does not equal character.

Balaam had charisma. Imagine if you will, the great pomp and ceremony, by which he built the alters of God, and ceremonially sacrificed before the Lord, the animals required. He had anointing. He had the gifts of the spirit. He had reputation as a prophet of God. He had a heavenly office.

Yet, he did not develop the character to carry the call.

Here is where I live: fighting daily, to watch over my words to fulfill them. Fighting to avoid any appearance of evil with women, money, or pride. To allow Holy Spirit to go deep inside my heart, searching my deepest motives, and transforming me, so that even my motives are right before the Lord.

I am not content to only do the right thing, but seek to do the right thing, for the right reason: that is for the glory and love of Jesus.

I shared my heart for a reason, man of God.

holy ground

You are right there with me. The pressure, the subtle flirtatious innuendo’s of seductive women (yes, they are real, it’s not personal, it’s just demons working through carnal women, to destroy you and your ministry), the business deals and multi-level ‘opportunities’ that flood your inbox, the praise of flatterers testing you, are common to every leader, and you must not fail!

Proverbs 27:21 KJ21

As the refining pot for silver and the furnace for gold, so is a man tried by praise

Whether you are called in ministry, business, government, education, or media, whatever your vocation, holiness is the standard: a clean, pure life, free from sin.

pure blessed

Depart ye, depart ye, go ye out from thence, touch no unclean thing; go ye out of the midst of her; be ye clean, that bear the vessels of the Lord.


Jesus spoke of the differences between hirelings and true shepherds who lovingly lay down their lives to protect God’s people:

But he that is an hireling, and not the shepherd, whose own the sheep are not, seeth the wolf coming, and leaveth the sheep, and fleeth: and the wolf catcheth them, and scattereth the sheep.

The hireling fleeth, because he is an hireling, and careth not for the sheep.
Be strong, courageous, pure, holy, and fulfill your heavenly office and calling, without compromise.
This is not a job, or any mere earthly vocation, but a heavenly office and calling.
Be the true shepherd you are created to be.
If you are compromised, let God forgive, purge, prune, and deliver you from your unhealthy relationships and business deals that make merchandise of the flock in your care.

I am not sure who this is for, my ramblings…but let’s pray:

‘Father, I pray for the brother or sister reading this today. May they fully consecrate to holiness, obedience, purity, and excellence of conduct, in whatever you have called them to do. Bring Your power, and truth, to extricate them from situations, relationships, business dealings, and distractions, that are contrary to Your will for their lives, that they might live, led by You, in purpose, passion, joy, and victory. I ask this, knowing I am heard, for I ask in Your name Lord Jesus, Amen.’
