Keeping The House Clean

An Enemy Attack

Housewives know only too well the importance of keeping the house clean, and such is the case in living a new life with Jesus Christ after deliverance. One woman, who was recently delivered, realised that she needed to keep herself in check to keep evil spirits out. Evil spirits would always try to come back, especially if they had had a "good home" in that person's body before deliverance. Evil spirits would often use loved ones, or people who are close, to offend the person who was delivered. This is so that new doors may be opened for them to re-enter, to put the person back under bondage again.

In sharing her newfound life in Jesus with her friends, the woman found herself distressed, hurt, and offended at a comment made to her by one of her friends. Such was the attack of the enemy (evil spirits) in trying to re-enter into her life. She tried to sort things out with that friend, but felt no better in herself. In fact, she started to feel a tension building up around her neck and shoulders which became quite debilitating. And so, she called me on the phone for help.


After hearing her story of what happened, I decided to help her there and then on the phone. I urged her to forgive and bless the friend that had hurt her, and then to cast the "spirit of Oppression" out of her body in self-deliverance. She did as I suggested. Before long, however, she groaned as if in pain. So, I joined in with her over the phone to support her; casting out the spirit of Oppression in Jesus' name. She then began to describe how the tension on her neck and shoulders started to travel downwards, past her shoulder blades, and down to her lower back -- at which point she felt like someone was twisting her, which was extremely painful. As I continued to pray, she told me that the pain faded, and soon the pain was totally gone! Her neck, shoulders, and back were normal again; no more pain or tension. She felt light and free, and so did her heart. Hallelujah, praise be to God!

A week or so later, I visited that same woman. During that meeting, it transpired that she had been having problems yet again with some of her friends; more attacks from the enemy. Some had been quite competitive, and had made her feel jealous. She hated that feeling of jealousy, and had prayed to God to ask Him to remove it from her heart. She had subsequently felt better, but I saw that she was still somewhat hurt, and so I offered to pray for deliverance for her.

As I stood up to lay my hands on her and started to pray. She saw (in the spirit) a shadow appearing right in front of her face. The shadow itself was a face, looking intensely and angrily at her, pouting its lips like a spoilt child. As I commanded the "spirit of Jealousy" to leave in the Name of Jesus, the shadow started to fade, and by the time I finished praying, it had disappeared; totally gone! Now her heart no longer feels any jealousy; not even a hint of it.

Thank you Lord Jesus for setting captives free! There is indeed power in the Name of Jesus, the only Name that can break the chains of the enemy! Glory be to our Triune God!

Psalm 51:10

Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.

Psalm 35:1-2

1 Contend, Lord, with those who contend with me; fight against those who fight against me.

2 Take up shield and armour; arise and come to my aid.
