A spiritual battle: An awakening experience.

Hope everyone enjoys this little testimony of Yahweh’s power.
I pray that everyone’s faith who reads this is strengthened like mine was.
I pray that all glory goes to Jesus and God the father.

It started out one night when dwelling on Jesus that I realized something that I had been deceived about. ( I had contempt for Mary the mother of God. This is wrong, and I tell anyone who reads this to not DISLIKE Mary herself, rather the worship that she receives.)
I knew it was something Satan had cooked up for me and a stumbling block.
In spite of that I was furious. I went on a walk like I normally do when something is going on. On my walk I thought there might be something different about this anger. (Was it righteous? I’m not sure.) It was late at night and I went to my usual spot to ponder. I knelt down and asked Yahweh: “Please let me crush the demonic force that made me thing this way.” Yahweh instantly answered me: “Start fasting, because you will get this whether you want it or not.”. This frightened me and I was came back home with the intent of fasting a long time.

I was a senior this year and it was hard to hide my fasting like Jesus told us to at school. I cracked when my friend told me that I shouldn’t deny myself food because it’s not what God wants me to do.(As we know that isn’t true, but I was pretty hungry. lol) I lasted 3 days without eating any meat. (I’m not sure if that is an appropriate fast, but Yahweh honored it regardless.)

Time passed and I had started to think that I might have made the whole thing up in my head. One day not soon after the fast I was feeling odd. My spirit was grieving like something was wrong. I went for a walk like normal even though it was raining. I walked a lot further than usual when Yahweh stopped me. He said: “Go home.”. I started to walk home and about half way there my bud Jake texted me: “PLEASE CALL ME!”.

I got home and called Jake right away. I don’t remember exactly what we talked about in that conversation, but I do remember the topic being on the beast of the revelations. So without asking him if something was wrong because I was nervous we got off the phone. (By this time I knew it was an evil spirit, I was just too frightened to ask.)
He texted me again: “PLEASE CALL ME.” So I did and by this time I mustered up the courage to ask…”Jake, is it a demon?” Immediately after asking this, his voice changed and I knew that it wasn’t Jake who I would be talking to.
Time passed after Jake’s voice changed and I was STILL in disbelief to some degree. Jake wouldn’t speak, I could only hear grunting and moaning. Finally I started praying like I should have been. I didn’t know what exactly to do, Yahweh led me to ask for angelic assistance and keep praying. I was saying the lord’s prayer when Jake finally spoke. I was speaking “deliver us from evil.” when he said: “No!” I said yes, he said “No!” and we went back and forth until I was told not to speak with it.

Meanwhile I could feel hands being placed on my shoulder. It was so peaceful yet I was in tears.

Finally, Yahweh told me it was time. Somehow I knew it was time to tell it to leave in the name of Jesus. And I did that and Jake went back to normal and was delivered.

Jake said he was still scared. I put my phone down and prayed to Yahweh to send him legions of angels to make him unafraid. I put the phone back to my ear and Jake said: “Josh I’m not afraid anymore!”.

Later he said that he wanted his dog Nellie. I put down the phone and asked Yahweh to send him his dog Nellie for more comfort. When I put the phone back up to my ear he gasped, his dog Nellie had entered his room.
PRAISE GOD FOR ANSWERING PRAYER LIKE THAT! Simply awesome. 🙂 We love you lord.

Jake felt like he needed to open the bible. Spirit led he opened to a random page, which was the revelations. There was it’s name. Abaddon. I am certain that without Yahweh’s coaching: Telling me to fast, telling me to ask for angelic assistance, telling me when to pray, and finally telling me when to rebuke it we wouldn’t have won this battle.
Matthew 17:19-21, “Then came the disciples to Jesus apart, and said, Why could not we cast him out? And Jesus said unto them, Because of your unbelief: for verily I say unto you, If ye have faith as a grain of mustard seed, ye shall say unto this mountain, Remove hence to yonder place; and it shall remove; and nothing shall be impossible unto you. Howbeit this kind goeth not out but by prayer and fasting.”

By the grace of God, without knowing this scripture, I was led to do just that. Fast and Pray.

Luke 10:20 “Notwithstanding in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rather rejoice, because your names are written in heaven.”

Thank Jesus! It made me so happy and hopeful.

I hope you enjoyed my testimony on this spiritual battle. God bless you all.
In love and Jesus,
Joshua

    very cool, thx for posting this.

  2. I did enjoy your testimony! This might seem irreverent,but I have never actually fasted.I haven’t necessarily felt a burden to, but I’m sure that could be the flesh.
    I guess I’m confused, Jesus talked about what He considered a fast. It was loosing the bonds of oppression,etc.But, there are many mentions of fasting in the New Testament that seem to line up with depriving ourselves of food.They were all before Jesus had been resurrected.(does that matter?)
    Can anyone tell me more about fasting?

      There is some amazing articles on fasting already, but in this case fasting gave me protection and amplified my prayers. (Probably – I can’t see the spiritual realm so I’m not sure)

  3. I believe as you continue seeking the Lord and fasting from time to time a lot more exciting events will take place in your life.
