Appearance of Jesus in Australia!

March 1st 2014

Dear Friends of Jesus,

Amazing night it was while on my last mission to Australia! Multiple signs and wonders. We concluded our most recent public deliverance service in Perth, Australia. We conducted the meeting at Concordia Lutheran Church led by a dear brother in Lord who is quite open to the deliverance and healing ministry. For many hours we taught from the Scriptures, led everyone in Holy Communion and conducted ministry for those afflicted by demon powers.

I taught on the three beautiful gifts God has bestowed upon women (this night was a ladies only meeting).

~Women are life-givers
~Women are creators
~Women possess the greater capacity to love

Because of these powerful gifts. Satan targets women because these gifts can be used to dismantle his kingdom. On this night we saw how the enemy targeted my precious sisters in these areas.

~Satan tried to oppose life with death
~Satan tried to oppose the creativity gifts with destruction
~Satan tried to oppose the gift of love by breaking my sister’s hearts

In every case we encountered on this night we saw the enemy specifically targeting women in these areas. However, on this night we saw Jesus rescue, heal, and deliver! This was an extraordinary night in so many aspects.

Jesus appeared in the sanctuary as did His holy angels. In fact, one disciple, testified of seeing Jesus approaching from behind me and placing His hands upon me. This made my year! What more could a disciple want? Don’t we all want the hand of God upon our lives, families and ministries? Knowing Jesus was present in this manner deeply encouraged me. My life is in the Lord’s hands. I am His servant. It was also revealed that the Lord Jesus stood behind my mission coordinator pastor Joan Smale with outstretched arms. This is a SIGN. This was a sign of God’s blessings and empowerment upon this mission. I also witnessed the sacred signs of the cross in visions as we spent some time in praise and worship! Others also witnessed seeing crosses also. The Holy Spirit was present in His signs and then He bestowed upon us His wonders and awesome supernatural power!

On this night nearly every seat was taken and with great anticipation we began to pray for those afflicted with demons. Immediately, demons throughout the sanctuary surfaced. I could see them and people were sharing how the spirits were afflicting them. A number of ladies surfaced the demons of Jezebel. Many of them were rooted as a result of generational sins. They were driven out in the name of Jesus. Some of the first souls we ministered to were affiliated with pains and torments. These were driven out quickly out in Jesus name! The smiles said it all!

During the evening I was impressed to confront the doorways of abortion and generational curses. This opened up a massive response. Powerful demons surfaced when I asked Joan to place my holy cross on the bodies of those women who have endured an abortion. One lady, a anointed worship leader, highly creative, manifested powerful spirits named Moloch, Baal, murder, Jezebel and so many others.

One of the first spirits that surfaced was Moloch. In the past few meetings we have been encountering this wicked power. He generally is a strongman and a leader. However this strongman was bound with chains and he spoke to me through this woman:

“We have been here for thousands of years. Her ancestors offered up babies in blood sacrifices. There was murder. There were human and animal sacrifices,” the demonic spirits revealed, “We are staying in this bloodline.”

Obviously, he was placed in submission and he declared Jesus was Lord. At one point, I called forth the mighty holy angels and they assisted me as they have every night on this mission. Really extraordinary, the ministry of God’s angels. I had them carry people, restrain, and strike those demons that tried to resist including this spirit named Moloch. I had one powerful holy angel stand before me and take out a long spear and used to weaken the demons. They cried out in agony.

Along with Moloch was demons of witchcraft. Some of the witchcraft spirits boasted they had placed more than 70 fiery darts into her chest.

“Yes, we have them implanted in her to afflict, to torment, and to hurt her,” the spirit of witchcraft revealed, “So many have cast spells and done rituals against her.”

Because some in her family practiced sorcery; witchcraft rituals were performed and conducted. Some were done against this precious woman. In fact, while in the midst of the deliverance session, a human interject surfaced –her grandmother! I spoke to “granny” as she was referred to and commanded her along with the demon attached to her (a spirit of control) to depart. They obeyed the commands of Jesus! On top of there being a human interject there was a ancestral dissociative identity –a little girl that endured a ancient witchcraft ritual and had been there a very long time; as this part was being held captive by demons all of these generations. I forced the demons to release the parts –there were a few other ancestral dissociative identities that were released and experienced immediate healing!

What was very unusual about these witchcraft spirits was not only him implanting all of those darts within her but actually he inserted a spiritual spear in her back to bring great pain and torment in her life. I had witchcraft grab a hold of the spear and extract from her body. The spear was rather long as everyone could see with their very own eyes the demons pulling the spiritual spear out. To counter all of these demonic acts I had the holy angels strike the demons with their swords and spears and the demons again weakened greatly. Interestingly enough, one believer testified of seeing, many holy angels, holding hands, around the sanctuary. Thus our meeting had angelic protection.

There were also many spirits of sickness and afflictions within this precious woman. They were all driven out too in Jesus name! The curses were broken and all of the remaining demonic spirits of hell were commanded out. They came out! The smile again said it all!

There were many other women present who had the spirits of abortion and needed deep healing. Sadly, one lady after another testified that nobody has come along to pray for their wombs to be healed since their abortions. This is horrible and a spiritual crime. Where is the church? We need to reach precious woman who have had abortions, miscarriages and such with the healing power of Jesus! On this night we extended the miraculous healing powers of Jesus and souls were healed including many dissociative identities including one little aborted baby who dissociated while in the womb. The little baby while enduring the horrors of the abortion experienced dissociation and attached to the mother’s soul (this is a common experience with women who have endured an abortion). I spoke to little aborted baby and witnessed little baby healed by Jesus!

Many women were healed emotionally and spiritually. Many hearts were healed. Moreover, bodies were touched by the miraculous healing power of Christ. Including a woman who came to the meeting with a walker-wheelchair device. For the past year, she has been confined to this walking device as the devil has struck her body with pains and torments. These spirits quickly surfaced in our meeting.

“We are here to punish her with great pain, to torment her, to keep her from walking,” the demons informed me.

As the generational curses were broken the demonic spirits were forced out and immediately healing came into her body! To where she could walk without the aid of this medical device. In fact, we did a little dance and jumped up and down. Mind you, this was a woman who couldn’t walk without the aid of this device. God had truly given her His power!

As you can see we have been quite busy working alongside Him! He desires to use His sons and daughters! We are His! Praise be to God!

Powerful Exorcisms at the Church of the Cross

Tonight was an unusually powerful public deliverance service, at our monthly Church of the Cross meeting, here in Houston, Texas. God’s FULL power was on display to heal, to deliver and to restore! Our small meeting hall was jammed packed with hungry souls who drove in from different cities to receive liberation from the powers of Satan. After a brief teaching from the Scriptures and leading everyone in Holy Communion I began to pray for those afflicted with evil spirits. As I did immediately there was a violent reaction from some very strong spirits within a young teenager who was sitting with his parents and brother in the back of the meeting hall. The demons began to pound his head against the wall viciously and with murderous intent. As I approached him the demons insanely threw him to the ground and he slithered like a snake to the other side of the room. The entire group of disciples in the room began to pray in warfare mode.

These demonic animalistic spirits surfaced no doubt because I exposed them early on as I taught on their reality during the time of teaching. They were exposed to the light of Jesus. Pastor Tony Walters assisted me in helping this demonized teenager whom I’ll refer to as Max. Only 17 years of age and yet had opened up so many doors to demons. I’m thankful to God we were there to intervene for this family who had driven nearly 3 hours to the meeting hoping to find some help for their son whom they knew was deeply bound by the powers of demons.

As Tony and I battled the demonic spirits controlled of this young man these animalistic spirits sought to bite us and to eat us. They were literally lunging at us with the hopes of grabbing ahold of some body part to eat! Sadistic animalistic spirits. They were even foaming uncontrollably from the mouth. They were physically very strong. They even threw a cup at me. They had invaded his life and we warred against them with the blood of Jesus! They were greatly weakened by the holy blood. I had Max’s adopted father take authority over the spirits in the name of Jesus! This also greatly weakened the demonic spirits.

I then had the holy angels of God pick his body off the ground and I bound him with chains. The spirits were literally bound up as they struggled to even move. I then told the demons to move to the front of the meeting hall. The holy angels assisted in this also. I utilized my holy cross and the demons immediately bowed before the power of the cross of Jesus. In fact at one point they literally grew so weak the knees buckled and they crumpled to the ground. Our King Jesus is too powerful! Demons tremble at the presence of Jesus. I tangibly felt the fire of the Holy Spirit on my right hand and struck the demons with the fire of God. They were shocked by the power of God through His servants. The demons were literally amazed and baffled that God’s servants could possess such miracle power.

After I led Max in repentance of the various sins that opened the doors to the demonic I called forth the chief ruling spirit. He so wanted to kill me. He so wanted to hit me however the supernatural power of Jesus was too much for these spirits. Spirits of murder, anger, rage, and others were all bound together and cast out in the name of Jesus!

Immediately Max felt the a surge of power. The power of the love of Jesus that was overflowing his very heart and he began to speak in new tongues. He was so happy and joyful. His brother came up to the front of the hall and gave him the biggest bear hug and then proceeded to give me a massive hug! He had been set free and he knew it! The smile, the inner peace, the joy was stunning to see! God rescued Max and he now wants to serve Jesus with all of his heart!

Others were set free from demons too! As I led everyone to break generational curses a number of people experienced freedom and could feel the demons exiting their bodies and minds. One lady we ministered to was originally from Germany. Her great-grandfather served in Hitler’s Nazi forces which allowed demons access into the family bloodline. We commanded many of these spirits out of her in Jesus name. They vomited out of her. Another lady we ministered to had recently escaped from her family’s involvement in witchcraft and sorcery. In fact, she is the only believer in her entire family. Her entire family is deeply involved in the occult and spiritism. God has extended His mercy to this precious woman and I was able to drive out many demons from her that were tormenting her mind. One demon that was controlled of her didn’t want to stand up and face me so I asked the holy angels to assist me and the demons resisted. Finally, the angels picked her up off the chair and I was able to battle them face to face in Jesus Christ name! They were sent to the pit too!

Immediately a huge smile came across her face. She had been set free. I also ministered to a little 7 year old girl heart part that carried so much pain and hurt. This part went to Jesus and I invited any others to go to be with the Healer. This precious young lady experienced deep healing along with her deliverance from evil spirits. We also ministered to many broken hearts and as I prayed for the love of Jesus to fall upon the hearts, many were testifying of experiencing the deep healing love of Jesus!

I am a firm believer in displaying the power and love of God in a public manner. The watching world needs to see as does the church. This is why we conduct public exorcisms. We want everyone to see how powerful and loving our King Jesus truly is! As I look back on these past several weeks I marvel at the numerous miracles of healing, deliverance and salvation! His love extends to all. I rejoice in the love of God!

God truly loves you! I am here to proclaim the love of Jesus. The world needs to hear that God cares for them and desires a personal relationship with all souls. The world needs to hear that He heals, that He delivers and that He saves to the utmost!

There was also a time for physical healing as pastor Tony and his wife Betty ministered to souls needing physical healing and a number of people were immediately healed from various kinds of pains and afflictions. Testimony after testimony people shared how Jesus had healed their bodies! What an amazing God we serve!

As I wind down this North American deliverance mission tour I am humbled before Jesus. He deserves all the praise and glory. He did it all! I will be heading back to my family and will rest. These past 20 days (it’s well past midnight here, so this is my 20th day of the mission) have been truly inspiring. So many have been saved by Jesus, so many were healed and so many freed from demonic spirits!

Tasting of the Powers of the Age to Come

Dear brothers and sisters in Jesus ~

These last two North American missions were intense. We truly tasted of the “powers of the age to come” (Hebrews 6:5) and I rejoice in the many souls that were miraculously touched by our Lord Jesus Christ! I have safely made it back home and last night my family gathered around the table for the reading of Scripture, prayer and partaking of the Holy Communion. Grateful for all your prayers and support as it sustained us.

I have received a very special email report from the mother whose 16 year old son was healed –from many demons and from a form of blindness– during our most recent meeting in Atlanta.

“Hello Jay, I just wanted to tell you thank you again so glad to meet you! We are praying for you and your family and can’t wait to hear how Richmond went. We are going try to do a testimony video and send it to you as Josh is still standing tall and NO GLASSES. Praise The Lord!”

I’m receiving many testimonies like this and this brings great joy to my heart. It’s been our mission for over a quarter of a century –to proclaim the fullness of the gospel which includes preaching Jesus, casting out demons, healing the sick and those broken in heart, and equipping the Body of Christ! You can get a glimpse of the awesome ministry there in Georgia by simply listening to this brief video testimony: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xa_psKkNZm0

From Georgia we traveled onward to Richmond, Virginia for more meetings. I was exhausted. I might have slept a few hours the night before and here I was scheduled to minister for many more hours. Prior to services I prayed: “Lord Jesus, I just ask that you give me your strength so I might be able to serve you and may many souls be delivered from the powers of the enemy.” God is faithful as He answered my prayer. Not only did Jesus give me strength to minister (the meetings lasted for more than 12 hours) but He also graced us with His holy power.

One of my spiritual gifts is “miraculous powers” as seen in 1 Corinthians 12:10 and have seen incredible signs and wonders as I travel throughout the earth. I have raised the dead, driven out evil spirits by the millions, seen multitudes supernaturally healed such as those with blindness, muteness, and deafness. Moreover, I have been used to bring forth extraordinary miracles such as using consecrated objects to heal and to deliver, power to remove animals and cursed objects out of bodies, and other unusual acts of the supernatural. One area where many saints believe I have been gifted in is utilizing holy angels in ministry.

Hebrews 1:14 is clear: Are not all angels ministering spirits sent to serve those who will inherit salvation?

God’s angels are “ministering spirits,” who have a mission to serve us. I have noticed the angels really enjoy being called upon during the ministry of deliverance as they are here to assist us and are ready to be called on in battle. I have seen hundreds of angelic miracles. Some pretty astounding miracles at that. When I served the Methodist Church I witnessed stunning angelic miracles during our weekly deliverance services. I even wrote a small book on my many experiences there titled, “Exorcisms in the Methodist Church.” Some of the miracles were hard for many to believe as they never witnessed anything like it before. However the angels assisted us greatly in restraining those with strong demon powers within their bodies. Remember are not all angels ministering spirits? They like ministering!

Well, while in Richmond I called upon them and they came! I’m going to share some of our experiences with them in a moment.

Our meeting was well attended despite the fact that it was holiday weekend. Families drove in from other states and cities to be delivered and healed. Some traveled many hours just to be present.

In the beginning of the service demons started to manifest in some very aggressive manners –one Catholic man, seated in the back of the meeting hall, manifested animal-like spirits that growled like a wild beast– disfiguring his face grotesquely. During our entire meeting demons were manifesting and were being confronted in the name of Jesus! Many souls were FREED from demons on this night.

One of the first individuals we ministered to was a 18 year old girl named Nadia from Eastern Europe who was brought by her parents. Adopted at age 3 from an short staffed orphanage she was filled with rage and sadness. Not knowing anything about her biological parents brought immense pain within her life. Unfathomable pain. All she knew was rejection and abandonment. Her pain led her to cut her own body with a screwdriver and to threaten her adoptive mother with knives. Counselors of all sorts were unable to bring inner healing into Nadia’s life. She so she suffered silently. Obviously the Baptist church they attended was ill equipped also. So, they turned to a friend who knew about our work in the area of deliverance and inner healing thus their arrival to our meetings in Richmond.

The first thing I noticed about Nadia was her eyes. Her eyes were indwelt with evil. They stared me at me with murder and rage. They darted around the room wildly. I looked beyond the evil and saw a little girl who was in deep pain. A orphan who was crying for help.

We are rescuers and as such we intervene in Jesus name! However the Holy Spirit prompted us to minister to her adoptive mother first and she had been invaded by demonic powers who held captive parts of her broken heart. These parts were released and the demons removed. As I ministered to the parts, Nadia, stood up and walked swiftly out the door, slamming it on the way out. Her adoptive father chased her down and brought her back to the room.

After seeing her adoptive mom healed and liberated we began to reach out to Nadia. Within minutes, Nadia broke down and began to sob like a baby as little baby parts of her broken heart were surfacing as was some toddler parts. All of them were taken to Jesus and were supernaturally healed by His gentle love. As these little ones were surfacing they wanted to be cradled and called upon Mommy. Along with the numerous little parts, many demons were surfacing and they were driven out in Jesus name!

Nadia’s face was drastically changed. Her disposition was one of utter peace and happiness. Her eyes were no longer darting around but had experienced stabilization.

“Jay, my heart really feels good, I have never felt this good before,” she shared with me, “I feel so light and restful.”

This former orphan found peace with God. What a beautiful time it was as her face simply shone like a holy angel. God loves orphans and rescued this precious girl from demonic torment.

What was truly exciting was Nadia and her parents stayed for the duration of the 12 hour meeting watching so many other find freedom in Christ! She even gave me a hug. This from a girl that looked at me with anger, mistrust, and doubt. For a time, I had the sense she thought I was simply crazy for the things I was teaching on.

“You thought I was nut job for a while? Didn’t you, Nadia?” I asked after her deliverance!

“Yup!” as she laughed, “I really thought you were crazy.”

Not only did Jesus set her free from many evil spirits but also brought deep inner healing into her life –merging untold numbers of her broken heart!

After ministering to this family I proceeded to pray over some former Hindu devotees from Guyana and as I did powerful Hindu demons surfaced and battled me.

“We hate you deliverance ministers!,” the demons screamed at me, “We really hate you a lot.”

Many of these Hindu spirit surfaced hoping to stay within these bodies. One fierce spirit named Kali battled me and spoke proudly.

“We will never leave, she needs us, she calls upon us,” the spirit informed me, “We are here because of ancient blood covenants, by her ancestors, that were made many generations ago from thousands of years ago.”

She was working in conjunction with Jezebel. She is considered one of the fiercest of the Hindu spirits. She is often pictured with her one foot on her husband, Shiva. That speaks volumes of her connection with Jezebel. Kali was determined to face me down.

“We really hate you!” she warned me, “Could you just leave us alone, as we want to hinder her ministry.”

It turns out she was a powerful minister of the gospel in her right who worked heavily in the deliverance ministry. No wonder she was a target of the enemy.

“There’s many of us, some of us entered because her pastors laid hands on her and we transferred from them into her.”

We are seeing this quite often. Many are submitting to ungodly pastors and allowing these people to transfer demons into their lives by allowing them to control them. This precious lady revealed that the pastors often warned the congregation that if they were ever to leave God’s judgement would be on them. How sad!

Moreover, these pastors refused to recognized this dear woman who worked so powerfully in setting the captives free and as such caused a great amount of pain to develop within their spirit. Her heart was shattered as she just wanted to be affirmed and loved. This happens all too often. Many pastors are hindering many fine ministers of the gospel and thus quenching the work of the Holy Spirit. It’s time for the Body of Christ to affirm, respect, and honor precious disciples who are called into the gospel work. We ought not to discourage but encourage the workers of the Kingdom.

Demons took advantage of the inner pain and took captive many heart parts. They explained to me clearly they would not be letting them go.

I began to ask the holy angels of God to surround the demons and to strike them with their mighty swords and as they did the demons moaned in utter defeat and were greatly weakened. I again battled the demons and they were resigned to the fact they were greatly outnumbered in this particular war with darkness.

Along with Jezebel, there were Hindu spirits such as Kali and many other Hindu spirits, there were also spirits of the water spiritual underworld that literally took many of the parts of her heart and forced them to participate in unholy initiation rites for demonic marriage purposes. There is a spiritual reality found in the deep waters of the oceans of the world. Much could be said about these spiritual dark kingdoms. However I know of the power of Jesus to set the captives free as I have been freed from a Masonic curse that brought horrible torment in my life. Jesus rescued me while growing up in these mind controlling sects.

The demons, within this woman, were relentless and wanted to battle. So, I continue to ask the holy angels to battle alongside me and they did with great power.

“I told you man of God, we have her,” these demons boasted.

Though they made these claims I had this deliverance worker reject the lies and to formally renounce the many rituals and covenants that were entered into by her ancestors and by some of her parts. These were specifically broken in Jesus name and freedom was found. The peace, the inner joy was very evident upon this woman as the Holy Spirit worked to bring liberation in her life.

While ministering to these ladies others were being miraculously healed and delivered. This happens in many of our public meetings as the Holy Spirit begins to liberate those who are in attendance who are open to His work in their lives.

By the way, we are going to be offering special courses at our Freedom Fighter International School on how to identify these kinds of dark kingdoms (and it’s specific spirits) –spirit husbands and spirit wives– at work and the means to defeating them. Be sure to sign up TODAY so that you might be equipped to minister effectively: http://www.ifreedomfighter.org/freedom_fighter.php Furthermore, if you are in the ministry we desire to make these courses affordable and have a special discount for those ordained into the ministry. Please email me for more information.

The very last part of the meeting included the ministry to a youth pastor who has suffered greatly as she experienced abuse (along with racial hatred) by multiple family members through the years including enduring through sadistic violence at the hands of her step father. My heart was deeply burdened for this precious saint who truly loved Jesus! While praying a demon rose up from within her and immediately I called upon the holy angels of God to pick her up off her chair and to bring her to the front of the meeting hall. Without hesitation (and without human aid) the holy angels obeyed and picked her and placed her in the chair I placed in front everyone. It’s interesting to note that after the deliverance, this youth pastor, questioned how she needed up in the front of the hall as she did not recall walking to the chair and sitting down. We explained that she went into a demonic trance and that the angels had picked her up and ministered to her.

Without even being near to this lady I asked the angels to minister and they quickly restrained the evil spirits and reached out to the many parts of her broken part that needed healing. I asked the angels to war against the demons and they did as they struck the demons with their swords. Furthermore, the angels of the Living God utilized healing oil and water to pour on the precious parts that need a refreshing touch of the love of God. The angels also gave gifts to the little parts and many of the parts testified of seeing Jesus. Many, many demons were commanded to release this young woman and they entered the pit. In these last two North American missions I have witnessed dozens of these kinds of angelic miracles where the angels appeared and worked on our behalf. This is amazing aspect to our mission that one rarely will see anywhere in the world. We are seeing this often.

After the demons were driven out and the parts healed, this precious lady testified of feeling incredible peace and joy. The light shining off her face was tremendous. Everyone gave her applause for fighting the enemies and for pressing forward in God.

Obviously, I’m somewhat tired after these two long missions but am grateful to our God for His wonderful grace and mercy. I have a few public and private meetings over the next few weeks however over the Summer I will be conducting several extensive missions to Africa and 2 trips to Australia –to Perth, Sydney and Melbourne. More details forthcoming.

For Jesus Christ is Lord over all!

I’m Azur

Recently, I was thrusted in a very intense exorcism involving an lady that is being horribly tortured by evil spirits. The demons are located within her head and cause her to snap her head in various directions in some very dangerous speeds causing her some horrible neck problems.

A evil demon surfaced while praying with her.

“I’m not leaving,” the demon told me.

“Yes, you are!” I informed the wicked spirit.

I commanded the demon to tell me it’s name & why it was in this lady’s body.

“I’m Azur.”

He went on…

“I’ve been here a long time and I came through her father as a result of his immorality.”

I called forth the lady from her demonized coma state.

I led this dear woman in prayer, renouncing the generational curse through the blood of Jesus.

The curse was broken and the demon groaned knowing what would occur next!

I commanded Azur to leave & to go to the pit! He left but more spirits remain but her head is feeling much better and the violence to her body has considerably diminished.

One Night in Bangkok

Southeast Asia is a hotbed for demonic supernaturalism and gruesome ceremonies such as Thaipusam (a self mutilation ritual). Much of this region is under a sway of the devil and the spiritual needs of the people is great. Not too long ago my wife and I had the opportunity to travel to this region and to minister with the hopes of bringing some light into this darkened region.

After a brief layover in Japan we flew into Bangkok, the capital of Thailand. One of the largest cities in this region, we quickly found that the city had a traffic problem. Crowded and yet beautiful Bangkok was a city of many wonders. The landscape was littered with majestic Buddhist temples and towering buildings. The city also had its share of Hindu temples and as Hinduism Today noted, “Bangkok is the epicenter of Thailand’s Hindu and Sikh population…” In our drives through the city we noticed quite a few of these Hindu temples peppered throughout. I was distressed at the sight of them. I was reminded of when the apostle Paul was in Athens and how he was also disturbed to see that a city of “full of idols” (Acts 17:16). Idol worship is common throughout the third world and we witnessed firsthand the spiritual dynamic behind idol worship in these demonic temples.

I have seen the effect of idol worship has in places like Western Africa but traveling to Asia and seeing it in Bangkok was different. Allow me to explain. My wife and I entered a few of the Hindu temples and we experienced some devilish things. We were not prepared for the overwhelming clouds of incense smoke as we entered the temple grounds. Devotees were scattered about offering everything from food to money and toys to the various Hindu deities represented. The deities themselves were a sight to see. Some were quite grotesque and creepy looking. Some of the images of their deities represented horror and vile sexuality.

My wife saw a Thai lady quickly cross the street to get some bottled water from a street vendor to only offer it to a Hindu deity. Does she not know that this false deity is incapable of satisfying her deepest spiritual needs? I noticed a group of people bowing before these demon gods in worship. Emptiness was written all over their faces. A quick glance at their facial disposition tells the real story however. One could actually “see” the evils spirits in some of the devotees. It was a truly eerie sight to behold. While we were observing all of these strange things going on in the temple my wife and I begin to sense a strong spiritual oppression encamp around us. It as if the demons behind these Hindu deities knew we were a threat to their work.

Instantaneously, these demonic spirits attacked my wife and me. At about the same time we both experienced a very mild but noticeable discomfort in our bodies and spirits. We could actually “feel” it as if the demons were pressing in on us. I began to pray and speak for the Lordship of Jesus Christ to reign tangibly over the temple. I began to sense the devotees were disturbed by our presence. We continued to stand firm in our battle with the demons in Bangkok.

Amazingly, after leaving the temple we both noticed the minor discomfort that we had experienced in the temple had vanished. We were free from Satan’s attacks. Demons do often attach themselves to idols. In fact, the apostle Paul tells us that the, “…the sacrifices of pagans are offered to demons, not to God, and I do not want you to be participants with demons” (see 1 Corinthians 10:20).

Many missionaries all over the globe speak of experiencing an evil supernatural presence when around idols. The reason is because there are evil demons nearby longing for false worship by the unsuspecting. That is why the apostle Paul cautions that those who offer sacrifices are in reality offering sacrifices to demons.

Moses tells is in Deuteronomy 32:16-18

They made him jealous with their foreign gods and angered him with their detestable idols. They sacrificed to demons, which are not God- gods they had not known, gods that recently appeared, gods your fathers did not fear. You deserted the Rock, who fathered you; you forgot the God who gave you birth.

In Psalms 106:36-37

They worshiped their idols,
which became a snare to them.
They sacrificed their sons
and their daughters to demons.

Again, we see that those who participated in the false worship of idols are in reality in communion with demons. This is very dangerous as this can open a door for demon invasion.
