Inhibited Worship: Another aspect of Witchcraft in the Church
Priscilla Van Sutphin   

Have you ever noticed people in your congregation that can't worship ?  Have you wondered why those people have a hard time entering in ?  Have you ever tried to pray for someone and it seemed like they were a ROCK that your prayers bounced off ?   Have you ever had people who don't like freedom in worship ?  This is about THAT !    I was resting, trying to go to sleep, but someone needed to hear this, even if it could be obvious to most.  

I want to share a few personal experiences...
There was a time in worship in the Big Vineyard that I noticed specific people just standing there in the worship and seemingly not engaged at ALL with worshiping God, yet looking around and watching others. As it turned out, the Lord told me they were witches - One was a male and the two others were women.

At one conferance I went to a workshop on cults and as we were worshiping at the beginning, I suddenly FELT tension on my neck, and I looked around and saw a woman in a black dress with long black hair looking at me, but not in the face but, over my head, as if on top of my head.  The Holy Spirit whispered,

I didn't know what to do so I just prayed in tongues. That did NOT get it off my back.  Looking back, I should have stopped the teacher and whispered to  him what was happening or another person, though I didn't know anyone really.  My neck was twisted as if I had an accident.  Afterwards, found a chiropracter who was also in my home fellowship, and she adjusted my neck. One young youth who prayed with us said he saw a rope put around my neck and it was like that another time when similar thing happened, as if someone took a rope and yanked my bone out of showed up on Xray.
Now at the time, I had not repented of the freemasonry in my family as I didn't KNOW at the time it was !  So I was vulnerable from that and also areas of healing I needed in my life.  Contrary to popular opinion, salvation does not assure no attacks.

The thing is, God allowed me to FEEL the attack, to know a demon was attaching itself to me.  This has happened MANY times in various places, and under similar circumstances.
Another time, I had been worshiping for about 3 hours one morning when I was sick, and a friend called and wanted me to take her teenage son in as he'd been doing drugs and she couldn't handle it anymore. She had a younger daughter and was at her wit's end.  She also had a strong spirit of jezebel on her.  

When she brought him, he looked very depressed and sat down and after she left, he broke down crying feeling very rejected by her. For some reason I began to feel to stroke his left arm as I prayed.  Then after I had prayed a while he had a vision he told me about of three demons around me, one black, one dark blue, and one red trying to put ropes around my neck, but they couldn't because there was a fire all around me like an aura he said, and as they'd throw the ropes over me, they would burn up.

There is a Presbyterian church in the middle of old town here, where a friend of mine went for years, and she was a "closet" charasmatic.  When the Holy Spirit baptized her years ago she got the "holy laughter" and so she kept it a secret for many years.  Well when I met her she was friends with someone in the Foursquare I was going to.  She asked us to pray for the pastor there as he was under attack and having heart problems...mostly high blood pressure.
So he contacted a charasmatic pastor and his intercessors in Huntington Beach asking them to come pray for him in the church.  My friend also came to pray with them.  While they prayed for him, the intercessor from HB came against a spirit as she had her hand on his heart, and suddenly the spirit clung to her hand and arm turning it into a claw like hand as the muscles all contorted/contracted.  My friend ran in the kitchen of the basement of the church and got a glass of water and prayed over it and splashed it on her hand rebuking the demon and it left !  
Later this church had a church split because the pastor was preaching the real JESUS, and members of the "bored" were having differing opinions. One of them had the goddess SHEVA [ Hindu goddess of death ] appear to her so she believed ALL PATHS lead to God, Our Father.  Others were into New Age, One parishoner was Jewish and not a believer.  Others had varying degrees of apostasy.  They had a vote and it caused a huge church split and the pastor was ousted. After that they began teaching the youth that all paths lead to God/heaven including Buddhism, Hinduism, Judaism, Sikh, Islam, whatever !HEAVY WITCHCRAFT in this church.  I have no idea where they are now, but the choir director is homosexual with a paid position.
Another pastor in town was telling another friend whose husband was an angry man that the reason he was angry because he eats meat !!! Wow, has anyone EVER heard that one ???  I thought this was strange, till we were moved up to Thousand Oaks with my ex husband's job, and I found out in the year we were up there that the Lutheran Seminary Campus yearly had a women's conferance and the whole thing was inundated with NEW AGE teachings. You could feel the demonic atmosphere just visiting the campus.
People in that area drove cars that had license plate holders on them that said "My other car is a broom"  And the FAITH in that Church was nearly dead for doing any healings or miracles and babies had died in that congregation.  There was witchcraft everywhere up there and I noticed that on the streets, they had vending machines as for newspapers, only there were pornographic materials available to anyone with a buck to put in it, including children and teens.
When I gave a corrective word to that pastor, I was hauled in with him and the assistant pastor, and my hubby, and he handed me a tiny piece of paper that said "Prophecy 101". Then he read part of a prophecy I'd given and he told me " GOD doesn't talk like this anymore. This is like Malachi !"  I remember being so broken , that I went home and cried outloud to GOD,
" I NEVER ASKED FOR THIS GIFT !  I asked for HEALING ! [ I used to be a nurse for many years ]  Later I had to repent for my discontentment with what comes with the territory, but at that moment I was really upset ! Thank GOD HE is so patient with me !
I'd been teaching 6th grade class at the Foursquare in town when this young man Brandon asked me a question in class one day.  He said, how do you tell what to do when there are two angels in front of you and both are quoting scripture, but one is telling you to obey your mom, and the other is telling you NOT TO !!!  Of course I told him to obey his mom.  But what he saw was a RELIGIOUS SPIRIT !
In this same church, later, after the Toronto people had come to the big Vineyard, and we had gone to meetings, in Sunday during worship I felt led to go pray for the children and so did a friend. So we went and asked the leader if we could, that we felt God wanted us to pray for them.  So he said yes and all the childen fell out in the spirit and one got Holy Laughter and prayed for me and I fell down laughing.  There was a new boy that day in the class.  His grandmother complained I guess.  
Then I was called in to the pastor's office to talk about it, and he started quoting...
Matt 18:6-7 NKJV       Jesus Warns of Offenses    (Mark 9:42-48; Luke 17:1,2)    "Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were drowned in the depth of the sea.  
Now this was a small church where anything happening gets around to everyone.  That Sunday I was also the object of His affection and in front of everyone he quoted this verse again, as if what we were doing was HARMING little children instead of empowering them.  He went on without mentioning my name, though everyone KNEW what he was talking about.  I had to leave, as I was so upset, and couldn't handle it anymore.
As I went outside I opened my car and laid down and wept and heard the Lord say VERY clearly.  "You don't have to stay".  He meant this permanently. I was hanging around waiting for my children to get out of Sunday school. While I was waiting, I was standing outside and I saw a beautiful Swallowtail butterfly [ yellow and black ] and it was on the ground.  I just love butterflies and I put my finger next to it, and it crawled on my finger. I knew this was NOT normal, and then noticed that there was a spider web hanging from the tip of one of it's tails that had been apparently caught in a spiderweb, and torn off, and that is why it wasn't flying around.
Then my sons came out and were VERY hungry and wanted to go home right away and said, just take it with mom !  So I did and it died on the way !
The Lord then dropped into my perception that it was an OBJECT LESSON. I was like that butterfly and I'd been caught in a web of control witchcraft [ spider ] and would not be able to fly here.  My husband agreed and we went on to start going to another church that moved in Revival.
After leaving another church where I was an assistant pastor, another of the pastors lied about me and I got asked to leave.  After leaving I experienced the lowest point in my life.  I was utterly broken because I loved these people SO much and they had presumed, and assumed, and listened to someone who still had a ton of witchcraft on them.   For months I couldn't read my bible, except to read psalms.  I couldn't pray except in tongues.  I couldn't WORSHIP very well.  I'd play the music, but my heart was just not there.
I was in DESERT that was so dry.  I had another of the pastors writing me telling me the 16 things wrong with me that I needed to fix.  She had freemasonry background herself so not exactly squeeky clean herself.  I knew through all of this they were praying soulish prayers against me/ control witchcraft.  It was a year and a half before I had a breakthrough. I was sick with Chronic Fatigue and Fibromyalgia at the time, and went through the most intense spiritual warfare I ever experienced outside of my abuse as a child.
That year I had bronchitis 6 times and it would last for 6-8 weeks. I was sick way more than well.  In one bout, I was hypersalivating even.  I felt I was near death. I had witches praying against me and satanists as I'd done some deliverance on those getting out.  My immune system I found from doctor tests done later was like someone with AIDS.  My t cells were low, and B cells borderline.  I had to go through intense detox of my liver to survive, and God had me start taking herbs to help my immune system. Because I was on medical the doctors did nothing to help.
One night as I was sleeping I suddenly woke up with a start praying outloud in tongues !  I had been sleeping in the living room on the couch so I could sit up to breathe as I also have had asthma for years.  As I did I looked across the room and there was a spirit  it looked like a bat with red circle around it ! Like one of the pokemon figures.  I knew already that bats are witchcraft spirits.  I also had awakened from a dream or vision of people outside my door walking in a circle with hoods on their heads.  So God allowed me to see what was coming against me.  When Satan wants to take you out, he musters his forces from different directions.
Later from that event, I was sitting on the "throne" in the loo one day when suddenly God flashed in my mind the many times I'd almost died, from before birth, to now. Then He said, " IF HE COULDN'T do it before, WHAT MAKES YOU THINK HE CAN DO IT NOW ? "  I suddenly felt something LIFT off me, and had a surge of joy that made me laugh raucously ! and then tear up !  I got delivered right there from a spirit of fear of death !
[ God has a sense of humor.  The toilet is always a good place to get rid of things : )  ]
Okay, now you don't have to believe this is you don't want, but after my mother died, which was a year after my separation and divorce - I'd been living with her and my son there in her apartment - I woke up one night in what used to be her bedroom, and saw the ceiling covered with batlike creatures in 2 D.  Then they were replace with a HUGE one the STRONGMAN I'd say that was as long as the ceiling !!!  My mother had been into ba'hai, Edgar Cayce, Unity, astology, tarot cards, seances, etc. etc.  I was frozen when I saw those things, but cried out in my spirit for JESUS three times, and by the third one, they disappeared !
After she died, there were lights going off and on, and flickering. There was one day when my son who was 12 came to me and he was having visions in his head he said of caskets and all kinds of things related to DEATH.  It was spirits from her trying to get to him.  Going there had been my only option at the time of the divorce. No money, no alternatives, couldn't work from being sick.  I was not a happy camper but I knew God to be FAITHFUL.
I brought Dave in the living room and we PRAYED after putting on WORSHIP for a while and continued to worship the Lord until he was free.
Many times in that bedroom, I was attacked just as I would go to sleep, I'd feel a demon attack me so that I couldn't speak, or it would feel like it was crushing my lungs, or once like a man that was going to rape me from behind. Each time I would CRY OUT TO JESUS and by the third time, it would be OUTTA THERE !
The last time, I saw one 3D and it pounded on the bed waking me up in the morning hours, as I sat up startled, it had left a scratch on my knee, and I was ticked by then.  I jumped up as if to chase it.  It looked like a scraggly old man, and had a gold aura around it and white gown, but hunched back, tall as a man.  I didn't have to see it's face, PTL !  But I yelled at it to get out, then turned on the WORSHIP and read Rev 19 & 20 outloud.
WORSHIP breaks the back of WITCHCRAFT ! That is why the Lord is raising up the Tabernacle of DAVID in our midst.  HE IS TO BE WORSHIPED and if people can't worship , then they are OPPRESSED with WITCHCRAFT !  Either jezebel, or witchcraft control, or ancestral spirits, or voodoo, divination, santeria, sorcery/drugs, or RELIGIOUS control-divination spirits of python, etc.
Worship is a barometer.  Yes, some people may have never learned how important it is.  But it's not the same.  Witchcraft can be ON YOU, IN YOU, or AROUND YOU and it will feel the same ! IT HATES WORSHIP. Satan wants to steal the worship going to God. So when you are oppressed, attacked, have had arrows aimed at you from darkness in or outside the camp. If there is ANY CHINK in your armor YOU ARE VULNERABLE, whether that chink is rejection, rebellion, jezebel, self doubt, self hatred, fears, whatever.
You have to keep praying for GOD's healing and STAY in His presence DAILY to get free. Even if you are going through dry times/ desert seasons GOD will see you through. DO NOT DEPEND on your feelings !  Speak the WORD OUTLOUD, not silently when you read. It blocks out the demons trying to speak to you !  WORSHIP OUTLOUD. It does NOT matter if you are standing , lying, kneeling , sitting, dancing, whatever. If you are sick you can just lie there and listen, but WORSHIP in your heart !  And GOD will make it all better.
One day when I was so sick, I just played worship and sang for hours, and rested.  At the end of the day after doing NOTHING. HOLY SPIRIT said to me, 

" How did it feel to spend the day with ME ? "
PRAISE HIM !  WORSHIP HIM !  GIVE HIM GLORY no matter how bad it gets !  Our FIRST ministry is to HIM ! Not to ministry or home, or office or family.  We cannot do those well unless we do the ministry to HIM  !
Later after MUCH inner healing and deliverance, I got healed of the fibromyalgia pain which was incessant before it, through Todd Bentley's ministry. There is still more that has to be healed, but I am way further than I ever was before, and a long ways from when I was first saved.
Oh Yeah ! FASTING is also great ! When the LORD tells you to then HE gives the grace.  I've done 3-4 day fasts, 21 day fasts, 7 day fasts, a 30 day fast, and a 40 day fast, just water that was the easiest one to do because he told me too and took away all desire for food.  FASTING HUMBLES US.
GOD LOVES YOU.  HE NEVER WILL LEAVE YOU NOR FORSAKE YOU.  The devils con is to fool you into thinking He won't help you, or approve of you. He loves to mess with our MINDS which is why you MUST take EVERY THOUGHT CAPTIVE.
NOW, if you feel to do it, there is a short book to read on why the church is having problems getting free.
I do NOT agree on two points in this treatise, but I LOVE this guy because he really knows what’s up, and what the problems are, and he loves God with his whole heart.  
2.I don’t agree that we shouldn’t  worship the Holy Spirit. RUACH ELOHIM is a person like Jesus and Father God.
2.We are NOT to worship the gifts or idolize them, but focus on Jesus. But the thing is when we focus on Jesus and worship HIM, then those things come, the revelation, the gold, the feathers, the jewels, the prophetic dance and prophetic songs, the discernment and vision and dreams, the healing and miracles, because they are HIM LOVING ON US.  We get them from HIS LOVE for us, not our worth or efforts.

In the first article I gave lots of examples of discernment of spirits that inhibit worship.  I didn’t mention unbelief, but unbelief is a huge one, and it inhibits our prayers and worship.  If you don’t believe God will do anything, then why should you pray or worship ?  Often this kind of unbelief is what gets people INTO WITCHCRAFT in the first place or false religions.  Because inside of us all is a natural acknowledgement that there is the supernatural, especially if we believe in a Creator, then it had to take supernatural power to create all this and all of us want to tap into that God that is all power.  People will go to great lengths to find that experience with HIM that convinces us that He is real.

James 1:2-8  NKJV   Profiting from Trials 
My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, 3 knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. 4 But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. 5 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. 6 But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. 7 For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; 8 he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways. 

I want to share some more experiences that have come to mind since the last article also. 

Often during the revival that came through Toronto, there would be people who didn’t seem to receive.  They would stand there and get prayer, but they seemed totally unaffected by the Holy Spirit.  I began to see that if they had a stronghold of not wanting to look foolish, or an opinion that conflicted with God doing something they didn’t think He would do, that it sometimes inhibited their ability to receive.  Now sometimes that could be because of the rejection in them that leads to patterns of unbelief, or it could be generational spirits of witchcraft, divination, sorcery, occult spirits of freemasonry, and such.

When I was in Bulgaria, I had to be interviewed to speak in a church. The church was very religious and this was really intimidating.  The pastor had a bad experience with some people that flowed in that Toronto revival that were insensitive to others, so had a bad taste in his mouth.
He finally agreed I could give my testimony is all, and pray for people.
While I began to pray for people, after the testimony, which came after the worship and sermon, it seemed not much was happening until some ladies came up who were in the same village and said there was much occult activity in that village and they had suffered because of it.
Once I prayed the witchcraft off of them, suddenly the Spirit began to move powerfully, and people began to fall down, manifest Holy Spirit and get healing !

In India is is very common to have people in the church who are not yet free from ancestral spirits and there are many complaints of headaches and stomach aches [ seat of idolatry ] so once when these older women rushed the front of the church to be first to receive prayer, they started arguing with each other, and I began to cough.  Then I noted that whenever there were witchcraft spirits around this choking thing would occur.  I think it is more specific to that idolatry associated with occult witchcraft as opposed to just control witchcraft.

The strongman needs to be bound to allow the Holy Spirit then to come in uninhibited by all the spirits of idolatry and witchcraft.  Sometimes He just comes anyhow when the atmosphere for revival is there.
In Visak, India,  I was asked to speak to a youth group and the Lord told me to witness what had happened to me in the Toronto revival, so I did, and when I finished the Holy Spirit came with great anointing on the youth.
However in that group, the worship was extraordinary, Bobby’s cousin led worship and you could tell this group LOVED to worship the Lord.

In one church I attended for a while, they would have revival speakers come and when the revival speakers came, there was much power of Holy Spirit and people manifesting in all kinds of ways, with laughter, weeping , falling down, deliverance, healing etc…but it seemed when they left, the church was back to” business as usual”.  I kept thinking something is wrong here for when the fire comes, it doesn’t just leave unless you neglect the daily disciplines of spending time with Him.  One time a speaker spoke and all throughout his sermon I could smell FIRE in the room as if there was smoke.
Another time, there was a special anointing on the youth dancers/singers and one of the dancers started to manifest prophetic dancing then spoke a word.  But then suddenly they stopped it all and went on to the “business as usual” instead of seeking what the Spirit would have them do.  It felt so odd.

Another time I met a woman in a church who said she wanted me to do more deliverance with her.  She admitted to being MPD and was going to counseling.  I arranged some prayer assistance and we had a time of worship in my living room before attempting any deliverance.  Interestingly, she had no trouble singing.  The Lord had warned me to not touch her in prayer.
Later after many hours of praying, she suddenly turned into a little girl personality, and I instinctively reached out to her to touch her, forgetting what the Lord told me and I felt a spirit go up my arm and into my chest.
It took a long time before that one came out, because I’d disobeyed the Lord.
It turned out that she admitted to having had acting classes later in another session.  She also admitted that her purpose in the Brotherhood [ satanic group ] was to go from church to church, finding out who the prophets and deliverers were, and asking them for deliverance just so she could get BIGGER DEMONS !!!  And no doubt in the process, try to bring down that person. [ Yes Dorothy, we are not in Kansas anymore. ]

During this time of doing deliverance ministry I was unaware again of the freemasonry background in my family and how much I needed deliverance also.

Another time, a young man who’d come to our little youth group that was held in a garage behind a friend’s home, and we were all trying to worship and pray when suddenly he manifested full on a demon, he was crossing his fingers like warlocks /Satanists do, and foaming at the mouth, and talking in demonic tongues.  I looked around the room and the youth were all wide eyed and shocked, so I said to them PRAY !  They all suddenly put heads down and started praying avidly.  Often demons love to DISTRACT meetings to get you away from the purpose of the meeting in the first place.  Prayer meetings are the hardest as they certainly don’t want you praying !
In the book “ Visions Behind the Veil” about revival in China. The children affected saw that when some of the children weren’t praying it was because there were demons on them, keeping them distracted or sleepy ! So they would go over to that child and chase the demons out of the room !

Another reason for inhibited worship can be an unhealthy FEAR of God. Sometimes people are afraid of the supernatural because they have had traumatic demonic experiences and they are afraid if they worship or pray or something that they will see demons or supernatural things and even if those things are good, like seeing Jesus, they are afraid.

I had a neighbor whose daughter had this fear because of a bad experience in a house she stayed where the mother was doing Tarot, and after that she was tormented by demons giving her false visions , gruesome ones, etc.
Her mother had been a meth addict for 20 years.
Yet she has seen the glory cloud on people  in church. She saw Jesus once when I was taking her to a movie, and we had dinner outside at a restaurant nearby.  Suddenly as I was witnessing about a trauma in my life, JESUS showed up tall as the palm tree she began to shake and tremble and was terrified. It was the fear of the Lord, but she wanted to run, whereas I wanted to stay !  She saw his white robe with gold trim waving in the air right beside us !  She saw HIS eyes of fire !  ….sigh… I really wanted to see what she saw !

One time when the young man who had manifested demonically in the youth group came to my apartment, I had not spent time in worship that day.  I was tinkering in the kitchen while he was playing with my keyboard.  Suddenly out of the corner of my eye, I saw Jesus sit down in my mothers old rocking chair, that is I didn’t see his face, but saw the white robe, sandals, dark long locks of hair, not His face.  But I had a SUDDEN compulsion to WORSHIP !  So, I told Danny, I’m going to the living room and worship.  He came in and joined me after a time.   Then at one point, I felt led after worshipping, to go pray for him.  As I did, at one point his right arm went up in the air [ he was sitting in a chair ] and it just stayed there as if someone were holding it.  He also was looking up as if someone was there.
Afterwards he told me he saw Jesus and while I prayed Jesus took his hand and spoke to him.  It then brought such conviction that he admitted he’d been lying to me for some time.  I already knew that, but to have him admit it was really amazing.

For some reason in the midst of this, I’m to tell you about an experience with worship.  One day as a busy mom, I felt drawn to go in the bedroom and pray.  I started praying in tongues, then suddenly felt to sing in tongues, and specific tune was coming to my mind.  Then He said Psalm 107, and as I went to that psalm in the Bible, certain sentences stood out, and it turned out that the sentences that stood out, fit perfectly with the music He gave me !
Wow, in just a few minutes God gave me a song !  Worship that is spontaneous and from the Lord is a powerful tool against the enemy !

One time in a church, a woman behind me after service was over and people were praying at the altar said she had a headache and would I pray for her.
She looked desperate and I was on the prayer team, so I prayed and she said suddenly, as I rebuked death off of her, after her sharing some things,
She said it was gone. “ The headache is gone !”  One woman who was near to her with black hair, said “ So when SHE prayed for you, it left ?”  After that, I went over to pray for another person I knew a bit, and suddenly I felt headache pain like an anvil on the back and top of my head.

I barely made it to Tustin from Anaheim.  So decided whatever came on me is too strong, I need help.  So I knew of a group meeting and went to my friend’s house, and by that time I could hardly stand or lift my head off the couch.  They prayed against jezebel for a bit, and it gradually started lifting off !   I couldn’t help think , that if I had just gone home, I would have had a very hard few days or whatever to get rid of that thing.  
All the words of knowledge they had brought me back to the church where I had just been.  Apparently that woman was on a team praying for the one I prayed for first, and was jealous when she heard that spirit left when I prayed.

I’ve experienced such attacks many times in the church, and from witchcraft and there is another issue that comes up about unbelief.
Sometimes people like myself who grew up so rejected can believe for someone else, but not for themselves.  I had a lot of self-hatred on me and self-rejection which are spirits.  These things of worthlessness, make you feel that God will not come to your rescue.  God showed me different so many times when I’d be attacked by demons from my mother while living in that apartment.   { later we moved to a different apartment and the atmosphere changed }
Many times when attacked, all it took was crying out to Jesus, even if a demon was controlling my voice inhibiting me from calling out, if I did it just in my mind.  By the third Jesus it would be gone ! This is how God worked out of me any fear of demons !  For by showing up every time I called, I knew He would do that any time I needed it !  I had been so abandoned by my mother as a child many times, that I thought maybe this time He won’t come, just like my mother, that I’d done something wrong, or been too bad for Him to answer !  BUT GOD IS FAITHFUL !  He NEVER abandons us, even when it seems as though He is slow in responding at times. He is there with us to get us through !

Much of the problems with sickness and demons comes from PRIDE in us.
Fear and Pride are what make up the CONTROL stronghold.
When He gets all the pride out, defensive or otherwise, it’s amazing how the healing comes.  For when the strongholds are rooted out at the deepest areas of our hearts and souls, then we also can obey easier !  
Most of the communication problems we have are due to pride and wanting to be right all the time.  [ see Isaiah 58 about true worship – at the end of this article ]

The last time I saw a demon 3 D was when I was still in that apartment where my mother had lived.  It was early morning when I suddenly felt a pounding on the bed and a scratch on my knee  that startled me awake !
As I opened my eyes, I saw a scraggly grey haired demon fleeing out of the room.  It had a hunched back and dressed in a white robe with gold aura all around it, and it must have had talons as I had a scratch on my knee !  I JUMPED out of the bed as if to chase it, as I was so angry !  I turned on the worship and began to read Rev 19 & 20.  I was fighting mad !

The devil really hates our worship and prayers.  Once when I had covens praying against me when I was so sick, they came in the spirit realm – soul travel and they were driving a stake through my neck and right arm.  
I woke up and could not lift my right arm without pain.  It was the arm I used for dancing with flags. [ I had so many wonderful experiences with the Lord and angels while dancing in my living room with the flags.]  I had to have my right arm in a sling for 3 months after that.  It was just when Teddy was here this summer that the last vestiges of that attack were removed, so that my arm no longer had pain in it.  Sometimes it would ache, but no more !

God restores and HE is doing so even faster these days !  Once when in worship, I began to weep and curled up on my couch. As I continued to weep which at the time seemed to be a healing I was receiving, or maybe one of those times of intense loneliness when you are going through such suffering, you don’t think you can stand it anymore.  I suddenly felt arms come around me, but no fear this time, it was either an angel or the Lord, and I just wept and wept, but as I did, I felt lighter and lighter, and much peace came to me from the Lord’s presence.  It was a time when you just don’t want that feeling to go away. You want Him to stay and not lift His presence at all.

There is no one like the LORD !  He is SO wonderful !  I have had to go through much intense healing because of the witchcraft abuses of my childhood, and all the abandonment and sexual abuse.  But GOD WHO is MIGHTY has done GREAT THINGS for me.

Before my trip to Russia for the first time, I had an experience late night just as I crawled in bed about 1:30 am, I was facing the wall and in that period where you are not awake, but not yet asleep and I heard behind me as if breathing down my neck, the growl of a lion !  I was SO tired, I just said,

“ Lord, I’m too tired to deal with him, will You take care of it ?” I don’t remember anything after that till I awoke in the morning ! That is unusual for me, as I often take a while to get to sleep. He took care of it and He did it IMMEDIATELY !  By that time I’d learned that I can count on Him when I am too tired.  I don’t need to strive.

There have been such times of intense presence, but then also dry times, that when I thought I had to read another story of someone describing a revelation of Jesus or the throne or something, that I would just weep for wanting to be with Him, and see Him in that way.  I have felt like the beloved in SONGS, just wondering where is My Beloved, for I cannot stand to be without Him anymore !

Below is a poem He once gave me…I pray it encourages you to seek Him above all else.

April 15th, 2003       0135 am

I was awake and I could not sleep. I felt the longing of My Lord
The longing for sweet communion. The longing to move and have His being in me.  How can I sleep ?  How can I lay quietly, when there is eagerness to express itself bubbling up inside ? 
Love for the Lover of my soul !

Come and let us go to the mountain of the Lord.  
Let us skip and run, let us dance and sing. 
Let us run with freedom in our hearts to spend time with Jesus.  
Come and let us speak what is true and good of His mercies.
For His mercies endure forever, His favor for a lifetime.
He alone is good.  He alone is lovely !  He alone is wonderful !
Love and mercy, love and mercy, justice and peace, belong in HIM.
Come one and all and see.  See the fire in His eyes ! 
See the honey on His lips.  See the strength of His arms !  
He alone is my Lover !
He alone is the One with Whom I dare to be naked and unashamed.
He alone will sustain me with His cakes of raisins and dates.
He has good food for those who are willing to forsake all else 
for Him.
Will you come on these mountains ?  Will you run with Him ?
Will you be free in your love for Him ?
Will you put everything in His hands, for they are strong.
My Lover's hands are like the muscles of strongmen , 
yet gentle enough to cushion.
How wonderful He is !  He is my Husbandman.
He never leaves my side. He never leaves me alone.  
He is always there for me.  He always provides for me. 
He always listens when I call.  
He is the One for Whom I yearn to spend myself on. 
How can I be satisfied with what is only a substitute 
for His tender mercies 
and sweet presence, replete with the scent of roses 
and perfumes that conquer my senses. Who can compare ?  
Who is so Awesome in power ?  Who is so Awesome in majesty ? 
Who is so Awesome in LOVE  but my KING ?  
Who can love me like this but Him ?
Who else can make me feel this way ? 
Who else can satisfy the longings in my heart.  
Who else can give me such JOY ?  
Who else can give me such Wisdom ?  
He alone is Lovely !  He alone is Kind.  
He alone is Mighty. 
Come, Come, ComeCome,  and be refreshed in His presence
Come and let him speak Words of life and encouragement 
and hope and love. Come !  
He is a fountain of life, bubbling overlonging to spend Himself on you !  Longing to be one with you !  Longing for you to know 
how kind He is.
Come !..

Isaiah 58

In the New King James Version the title of the chapter is TRUE WORSHIP !

Isaiah 58   Message Bible  -  Your Prayers Won't Get Off the Ground 

"Shout! A full-throated shout!  Hold nothing back — a trumpet-blast shout! 2 They're busy, busy, busy at worship, and love studying all about me. They ask me, 'What's the right thing to do?' and love having me on their side. 
3 But they also complain, 'Why do we fast and you don't look our way? Why do we humble ourselves and you don't even notice?'  "Well, here's why:   "The bottom line on your 'fast days' is profit.  You drive your employees much too hard.  4 Y ou fast, but at the same time you bicker and fight. You fast, but you swing a mean fist.  The kind of fasting you do 
won't get your prayers off the ground.  5 Do you think this is the kind of fast day I'm after:
6 "This is the kind of fast day I'm after:to break the chains of injustice, get rid of exploitation in the workplace,free the oppressed, cancel debts. 7 What I'm interested in seeing you do is:sharing your food with the hungry, inviting the homeless poor into your homes, putting clothes on the shivering ill-clad, being available to your own families.  8  Do this and the lights will turn on, and your lives will turn around at once.Your righteousness   will pave your way. The GOD of glory will secure your passage. 

9 Then when you pray, GOD will answer.
You'll call out for help and I'll say, 'Here I am.'  A Full Life in the Emptiest of Places   "If you get rid of unfair practices,  quit blaming victims, quit gossiping about other people's sins, 10 If you are generous with the hungry and start giving yourselves to the down-and-out, Your lives will begin to glow in the darkness, your shadowed lives will be bathed in sunlight. 11 I will always show you where to go.  I'll give you a full life in the emptiest of places — firm muscles, strong bones.  You'll be like a well-watered garden, a gurgling spring that never runs dry. 12  You'll use the old rubble of past lives to build anew,rebuild the foundations from out of your past.  You'll be known as those who can fix anything, restore old ruins, rebuild and renovate, make the community livable again. 

13 "If you watch your step on the Sabbath and don't use my holy day for personal advantage,If you treat the Sabbath as a day of joy, GOD's holy day as a celebration, If you honor it by refusing 'business as usual,'making money, running here and there —   14 Then you'll be free to enjoy GOD!   Oh, I'll make you ride high and soar above it all.    I'll make you feast on the inheritance of your ancestor Jacob."  Yes! GOD says so!
