Imagine being in a continuous spiritual battle for 27 hours. That’s right, for 27 hours (with only 3 or 4 breaks lasting 10-15 minutes during this entire time) I battled numerous demons in Northern Georgia.
It was simply miraculous that I was able to continue to battle against the forces of darkness for that long. I know many fellow evangelists, pastors, and missionary friends who attest that simply preaching for an hour each Sunday can be spiritually demanding. I know this to be true too! Now imagine dealing with demons for 27 hours straight! God as my witness I think I could have gone for another 12 hours as God was sustaining me as He was allowing me to scale lofty heights of spiritual greatness for the sake of souls! I just literally ran out of time as I had to catch a flight back to Dallas (by the way~I was up for another 12 hours upon leaving Georgia).
It all started early Saturday morning. It was 2am and I was praying. I knew the enemies of the cross were at work but couldn’t pinpoint the direct source. I was having a difficult time going to sleep but the Lord provided. At 9am, Saturday morning, I was meeting with those needing prayer and I didn’t stop casting demons out until 12noon Sunday!
For the first eight hours or so I dealt with a precious family that was experiencing demonic attacks. The husband had been physically afflicted in various manners. He was tormented by Satan. We dealt with serpent spirits (they even exhibited snake like qualities thrusting his tongue out, for example), Appolonia spirits, and host of others. One of the more powerful spirit within this young man was named, Belial. It took us a good hour to reach him as he was hiding. To get to him, a dissociative identity named, Brave, who confessed his love for Jesus, God in the flesh, (his precious wife named this precious part) with the aid of 5 holy angels that were assisting me, took off on a long journey. First I asked about his inner world~
“I see a unlocked door on the far end of the room I’m in,” Brave revealed.
With the holy angels with you go through that door.
Brave did and noticed some keys. He and the angels picked up the keys. Also on the far end of the room there was a staircase. I encouraged him to take the stairs. Brave did along with the angels.
In this upper room he noticed 4 locked doors. We used the keys and unlocked the doors. We went through the door and entered a room where there alot of light but on the far end of the room Brave revealed there was some darkness (darkness equates with the prince of darkness) so went towards the darkness and confronted the darkness with the power of the Holy Spirit.
With growls, with unearthly groans, with pure hatred and evil an demonic spirit surfaced.
“I KNOW who you are,” the demon shouted at me.
Then he got louder.
“I KNOW who you are, you &*%$#&@,” the spirit getting considerably more upset with my confrontation with him in the name of JESUS!
This spirit named Belial had been hiding in this inner spiritual realm with the hopes of never being confronted and expelled.
“I have been here since 1600, I entered his Ghanaian ancestors who sacrificed a cow to me,” Belial, revealed, “The sacrifice allowed me the spiritual right to enter the family and I have traveled down through the generations, through the bloodline.”
As this young man renounced the generational curses of the idolatry and pagan sacrifices Belial was driven out in Jesus name. The man vomited, and convulsed but oh such relief on his face as he was delivered from this vile spirit.
As this precious family took a break I continued on with the ministry. I dealt with a man, who had traveled hundreds of miles to attend these meetings, who had a spirit of murder. He also testified to me that while attending a recent meeting I had in Central Florida he was healed of various demonic pains when I prayed in Jesus name. Praise the King Jesus!
After this brief session we conducted a mass deliverance for several families after partaking of the most Holy Communion. It was nearing 10pm at this point. One demonized lady at the meeting couldn’t drink a cup of water I had blessed.
“Jay, just push my arm up so can I drink it! Otherwise I won’t be able to”
For a good hour or so we battled the spirits that prevented her from drinking the consecrated water. It was a intense war because the demons did not want her to experience the living water of Jesus! Eventually the saint was able to place the water on her lips and then later in the evening was able to actually drink the blessed water and experienced a measure of liberation.
We also dealt with the lady’s 19 year old daughter who had a crippling spirit named Chaos. Her mother and father testified before all that this spirit would manifest through the years, always crippling her and talking through her in a eerie tone and accent. We witnessed this firsthand as soon as Chaos manifested before all~the spirit began to severely contort her body and her in particular her feet as they were horribly twisted and began to move violently. I placed a cross on her feet and they ceased from moving.
“I entered her as a result of a curse. Her neighbor placed a curse on her and I traveled with the curse into her,” Chaos disclosed.
After renouncing this curse, the spirit of Chaos was cast out in Jesus name.
This entire family also traveled many hundreds of miles to be present during these sessions. This isn’t unusual. As I travel throughout the nation holding these meetings we are finding people who are willing to travel hundreds and even thousands of miles to find deliverance from demons. The Western Church by and large are not assisting bound souls and thereby these precious people are so desperate for help will travel.
I also dealt with the other daughter who had been target of various spells and curses. She was delivered of various demonic pains and afflictions. For you must must understand this family has a history of witchcraft and dealings with many involved in the occult. The father’s mother is a active witch who is proficient in astral travel. We saw this firsthand late in the night.
It was 3am and we were still driving out evil spirits from those assembled in our small meeting area. I had been doing this now for 18 hours or so. God was providing supernatural power. I was again dealing with the mother who had numerous evil spirits. But this time things progressively became more difficult to deal with. I could sense we were not only dealing with demon powers but cult powers (cult members who were casting spells, conducting rituals, in an attempt to hinder our meeting). It has been my experience that dealing with demons at this time, do in fact, become more difficult to battle. These are times (between midnight and 4am) when occult groups, satanic sects, witchcraft covens are performing their rituals, often times against the church.
At one point husband’s mother (who is a active witch) astral traveled to her daughter in law and entered her soul nature and then look through her eyes to me (the mother’s son testified that even his wife’s eyes transformed to the appearance of his mother’s eyes). With deep hatred she looked at me. She was present as a human interject to hinder the deliverance (the demons communicated and informed her of what was transpiring~the ministry that was taking place~and through a series of occult means she traveled to her daughter-in-law to hinder). I drove her out and the demon aiding her in this process in Jesus name! Prior to the demon’s removal we discovered that there was a occult group on the floor below me in my hotel room that was involved in witchcraft spells to hinder the ministry.
We continued on with the ministry up through until 9am when we held our public Holy Communion service. Again we were honored with the Lord’s presence. For an hour and a half I taught from the Scriptures. Mind you I had been up at this point for 24 hours and was still given a measure of mercy and grace to now teach from the Sacred Scriptures that spiritual weapons at our disposal as I wanted to leave the Body some divine tools to assist them in their various spiritual battles.
After a brief break the public ministry of casting out demons in Jesus name!
A precious Haitian family traveled more then 2 hours to be present at this early meeting. The lady shared with me that she got up 5am to ensure she would be able to make this meeting. I’m very happy she made it as there were numerous demons within her from ancestral voodoo participation that allowed these spirits rights to her body. The demons were screaming as they were being commanded to leave. Her body convulsed and as her arms were being horrifically twisted, these vile voodoo spirits were cast out in Jesus name. Then she asked me to pray for her two children and as I did the demons within them threw them to the ground and screamed. These children were set free in Jesus name.
We also ministered to another saint who was demonized and God was faithful to deliver him from many spirits.
As you can see with your very own eyes, as you read these vivid accounts, that we are in the midst of a great spiritual war and we must be ready to cast demons out of people in Jesus name. Jesus declared, “In my name you will cast out devils.”
