Decline of Spirituality, Rise of Sorcery, Need for Exorcists

Dear brothers and sisters in King Jesus ~
 
A rather interesting article was published by the UK’s Telegraph today that explores the reality of the occult and Satanism rising in power as Judeo-Christian spirituality wanes in the West. You may click here to read the entire article. The title of the article: “Decline of religious belief means we need more exorcists, say Catholics,” which included the subtitle: “Decline of religion in the West has created a rise in black magic, Satanism and the occult”
 
Thank God for the Catholics who are standing up to the devil. Can’t say that for many Charismatics, or Evangelicals or Mainstream Denominations who are doing anything. The Catholic Church recognizes the need for the the ministry of exorcism. Moreover, they see that a rise in witchcraft will demand the need for the church to respond. In fact a exorcism conference is being held in Europe to equip the saints on how to cast out demons. The article reveals as such, “The six-day meeting in Rome aims to train about 200 Roman Catholic priests from more than 30 countries in how to cast out evil from people who believe themselves to be in thrall to the Devil.”
 
When was the last time you heard a Methodist or a Pentacostal or a Baptist church (or any church for that matter) holding a series of meetings that centered on training ministers on how to cast out demons? Sure, there are independent Christian groups and missions such as ours that carry on this work but in the West it’s rare to hear even the pastor mention the reality of demons let alone hearing a pastor equipping the people on how to conduct an exorcism. So many pastors are afraid and are compromising. No wonder the moral and spiritual problems we face in our nations. Demons are running rampant without anyone hindering them. This would explain why the Catholic Church has been hit so hard in recent years. They are at least speaking out (and training 200 priests in this recent conference) and the devil is furious with this fact; thus the intense attacks upon them. 
 
The late Pope John Paul II actually performed exorcisms and it has been reported that even the current Pope Francis performed one recently. At least they are doing what they can to help those enslaved to darkness. Most pastors would be petrified. I recall when I served as a minister within the Methodist Church many fellow pastors and ministers were nervous and fearful of dealing with the demonic and would rarely assist me in our public deliverance services that we held in the sanctuary. Sad commentary on the state of the church. I have been serving Jesus for 27+ years and I have seen this kind of inaction repeated numerous times in numerous settings. I have actually seen fellow pastors walk out while ministering deliverance to members of their congregation; not wanting to help. I have actually seen pastors manifest demons but walk out; not wanting to receive their own deliverance. I have seen pastors speak out against the ministry of deliverance while members of their congregation are desperately crying out for help. Horrible. 
 
As long as I have breath I will speak out for Jesus and cast out demons. Earlier this evening my family gathered around the kitchen table and read from 1 Kings 18 concerning Elijah’s confrontation with the prophets of Baal. It was astonishing to see Elijah stand so confidently in the midst of more than 450 evil prophets hell bent on serving a demon-god (they were so serious that they actually mutilated their own bodies). We need more disciples like Elijah. I explained to my kids the need to stand for God; they are so willing. If my little kids are willing why are not more pastors? I think it’s about compromise. Pastors do not want to lose their jobs or face their own demons. My fellow pastors (out of thousands that receive our email updates, many hundreds are in the ministry) why are you silent? When Jesus dealt with demons, He did so in public. It’s time, my pastor friend, to follow Jesus and conduct public exorcisms. Pastor, it’s time to follow Jesus! The watching world needs to see the power of God. It needs to be demonstrated. I cannot recall a public meeting I have held where I did not cast out demons out in public.  In more than 1,000 meetings, in the past several years, I do not believe there was one single meeting where demons were not cast out. I could be wrong but I just don’t recall. 
 
Did you know that at Harvard, here in the United States, there are plans to reenact a Black Mass (a satanic ritual). Read about it here. Guess who is standing against them? The Catholic Church. Sure, there are major problems with the Catholic Church (as there are in every church) however at least they taking a very public stand against the occult. It should be also be noted that the Catholic Church is nearly always on the forefront of speaking out, in public, against the evils of abortion while the rest of the Western church remains silent. 
 
There is a need for EXORCISTS! Satanism, witchcraft, black magic, sorcery, spiritism and the occult is on the rise throughout the world. This is why I have created the Freedom Fighter International Training Center that is dedicated to equipping emerging exorcists who desire to serve Jesus in the ministry of casting out demons. Thus far, more than 100 students, have enrolled from 5 different continents. We are doing our small part by God’s grace. Then, through the years, I have personally trained, in our meetings, tens of thousands of disciples, by demonstrating the power of God over demons through actual exorcisms I have performed. I see the slippery slope –authentic spiritually has waned, demonism has risen, mass demonization has taken place, now the need to respond to the mass demonization by equipping exorcists to drive out devils in Jesus name! 
 
I am in the midst of planning an extensive ministry schedule for the rest of 2014 that will reach many thousands throughout the world for the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ! We have missions planned for the Middle East, Australia, Africa, South America, Europe, Asia and throughout North America (more details forthcoming). Many of these meetings will be small, some will be rather large. Irregardless, we will do our part as a mission to impact the world for Jesus! Why not join us in this mission. Get trained –enroll in our inexpensive training school, attend our meetings, read our publications. 
 
Some interesting emails continue to roll into our mission. Such as this one:
 
“I wanted to tell you that I had a dream that you delivered me from demons. What’s so powerful about that is that, even in my dream with them in my dream! When they saw you in my mind they shook with terror and screamed. And I woke up. I guess they didn’t want to see you anymore. I just thought that was a powerful thing you might want to hear about your ministry since all the threats. Praise Jesus’ name and his blood that saved us all.”
 
WOW! I want demons to scream! I want to destroy them in Jesus name. This isn’t the first time I have heard from people about seeing me in their dreams casting out demons. This has happened throughout the world. In Pakistan, I recall this taking place and people being healed. There are times when I sleep it’s as if I’m ministering even while dreaming….who knows what’s happening but I’m thankful to being used of God in any way possible.
 
Also, received this fascinating email:
 
“Jay, I am Kim from Atlanta.  I attended your meeting and stayed until it ended after 2:00am.  I could have stayed until6pm if you did.  I never felt tired or bored which is unusual. I know God led me to you for my  deliverance and healing.  I wanted to wait and see if I was healed before I email you.  Well, I was the lady who sat in your chair upfront and expressed my sadness about my mother lying to me about my father.   I have never experienced such compassionate and love from another human being.  Thank you.  I still have very large tumors in my abdomen but the pain is gone!! I also feel lighter and more bold and free.  You have opened my eyes to the wiles of the enemy.  I look forward to your next visit. Thank you Pastor Jay, Sharon and James!  I am overjoyed that believers are being set free.  Jesus is Lord!!!!!”
 
WOW again!!! Our public meetings are filled with power, love and compassion. I am deeply humbled that so many feel compassion and love in our meetings. This is my heart’s desire. Though in this case there is some healing still needing to take place however healing has started to take place; as all of the pain is gone. Furthermore, she has experienced significant deliverance from demons resulting in her feeling “lighter,” “bold,” and “free.”
 
Jesus to be praised!

Eye-Opener in Houston

This past Sunday night we saw victory in Houston. In fact, I was just checking my toll-free voice mail messages and a man who attended our Church of the Cross gathering was stunned in what he witnessed. 
 
“Jay, I had no idea how much pain people have suffered through. It was an eye-opener,” he shared.
 
Our Houston meeting was an eye-opener; as is all of our public meetings. For more than 7 hours we taught from the Scriptures, battled demons, prayed for the sick and those broken in heart. The pain that was discovered deep within lives was shocking on many levels. 
 
A number of precious people were being delivered from demons as I led everyone in mass deliverance prayers. Moreover, we were encouraged to see that 90% of those who came to our service stayed for the entire 7 hours of ministry! This is not unusual either! In most of our meetings; the vast majority of people will stay until the very end. After the service a dear pastor friend came up to me and exclaimed: Jay, in most church services people are ready to leave within 1 hour and yet here people stay for 7 hours. It’s amazing!
 
It is incredible to think about it. As I shared before I believe the answer is because Jesus AND His miracle working power is welcomed. That second part is a key element; thus the interest. Our small meeting hall was nearly packed and so many souls were touched by Jesus! 
 
The first lady I ministered to was demon possessed as a result of her ancestors turning to witchcraft thousands of years earlier. These were violent spirits but they were defeated and cast out in Jesus name. Another lady in the crowd manifested demons. Those were also witchcraft demons. They too were violent. I called forth mighty holy angels and they came to assist me in warfare as they picked her off the chair and brought her to the front of the meeting hall to receive deliverance. After her deliverance the smile was ever present! She revealed to everyone that she had a vision earlier –prior to the meeting– that she would receive prayer and would be delivered on this night. It came to pass! Yet, another woman in the crowd manifested very strong demonic spirits. Again it’s name? Witchcraft. 
 
“We have been here for thousands of years,” the demons boasted to me, “Nobody ever discovered us.”
 
The demons laughed. This was repeated a number of times through the many hours of casting out demons. So many demons exist within people who have no idea they have been invaded by these unseen forces. It’s something I never get used to hearing. It troubles me deeply. Just think how people in this world have demonic spirits and they have no idea. We must expose the darkness and defeat the darkness. However expect resistance.
 
“We hate YOU, we hate YOU, we hate YOU,” the demons screamed at me during the night! These screams, mind you, were coming from demons that resided within a worship leader who was attending our meeting last night. A worship leader who was powerfully gifted. 
 
“We are here because her ancestors practiced idol-worship, witchcraft and offered blood sacrifices,” the demons informed me, “We also bring sicknesses and pains in her body.”
 
Not only was this worship leader healed physically from numerous ailments and pains. She was also healed of a broken heart. Many parts surfaced and spoke to me. They were taken to Jesus for deep healing. 
 
These hateful demons, that had tormented this minister, ended up in the pit where they belong! 
 
All night long –hour after hour after hour– we witnessed many parts of broken hearts surfacing and speaking. All of them were taken to Jesus for inner healing. This was definitely an eye opener to many. Especially some of the pastors and ministers that were present in our meeting. It was a holy education and many of them will be taking what they have learned to minister to their respective congregations. 
 
Another young lady who was sitting up front also manifested demons. They began to shake her terribly. So many demons convulsed and screamed on this night. 
 
“I’m Jezebel,” the residing demons revealed, “two of her friends placed witchcraft curses upon her, they were death curses.”
 
Ah! You never know, my friends, who just might be sending curses to you. In this case, two of this young lady’s friends sent powerful death curses with the hopes of destroying her. So much for these so-called friends. I know how curses can affect you. I have been victimized by witchcraft curses. In fact, I’m in the midst of battling them now here in Alabama from those who seek to destroy me. 
 
What was special about this public exorcism was that her missionary parents were sitting near the front watching her daughter manifest demons and being powerfully delivered. At one point I had the holy angels pull out a spear and I called upon the angels to strike the demons with the spear. You should have seen the reaction! The demons were greatly weakened and moaned in utter defeat. So many miracles to report. 
 
Strong demons named death, destruction and Jezebel surfaced and spoke to me and fought me. However, Jesus prevailed and the demons were cast into the pit. Many heart parts surfaced and were sent to Jesus for healing. 
 
One young man we ministered to had been invaded by the spirits of insanity and madness. They laughed and laughed. They had almost succeeded in making him believe that he was indeed crazy and insane. These powerful demons were cast out. 
 
So many others experienced measures of freedom and healing –physical and inner repairing. It was beautiful to see the smiles and hearts filled with joy. After 7 hours of intense ministry I was tired and my voice needs some rest. I was up early, to get a flight into Florida. Then drove into Alabama for this current mission. After this mission to Alabama I’ll be heading onward to Nevada for more private ministry. Then onward to North Dakota. We need your prayers. 
 
There are powerful demons conspiring against me (see Psalm 37 about the reality of evil conspiring against the righteous) in an attempt to destroy. I will forever be sustained by the blood of the cross of Jesus. This I know! By the way, the miracles of my sacred cross, were numerous last night. Just know there is power in the CROSS! Amen!
 
Standing in the Power of the Cross of Jesus,
 
Jay Bartlett
