One night a lady from our church had a dream, in the dream she saw an evil spirit cowering in a corner. He was actually trembling with fear as he looked at her.
While looking at her, another evil spirit appeared, he was much larger and more sinister than the other.
With heated anger and rage, the larger spirit yelled, “Why did you let her go? Why did you let her go?” They began to talk to each other and she awakened from the dream.
The larger spirit was angry because after many years of crack cocaine addiction, she was finally free and attending church.
Deliverance from drugs was just the beginning of all the great things God would do for her. Within six months she was married and lived in a beautiful home.
But these blessings were short lived.
Shortly after getting married, she became offended by a statement someone made at church. The statement really bothered her so she stopped attending church. She also stopped associating with church members, including her own family members.
Her life began spinning out of control. She filed for divorce and started using drugs AGAIN.
She spent time in jail and after getting out of jail, she moved to another state and there learned she had throat cancer.
Remember before she awakened the demons were talking. They were creating a plan to get her back. One of the main tools evil spirits use against believers is “offense”.
When we become offended we stop talking and spending time with other people. There is safety in unity and communion with other believers as the spirit of God resides in ALL believers. It is His Presence in us that causes demons to flee. It is His divine counsel and wisdom that defeats Satan’s evil plans and strategies.
Evil spirits recognized the spirit of God in Jesus Christ the Son of Man.
Evil spirits also recognized and obeyed the disciples. This made the disciples happy but Jesus told them not to be happy because evil spirits obeyed them but to be happy their names were written in heaven. (Luke 10:20)
Evil spirits recognized genuine apostles and fake apostles. They obeyed genuine apostles but caused physical harm to the phony apostles. (Acts 19:13-16)
Remember when Abraham and a small army rescued Lot after he was captured by an army led by four kings. (Genesis 14:1-16)
We can rescue our brothers and sisters from the hands of the enemy with prayer.
If we need to be rescued from the hands of the enemy we can’t remain estranged from other Christians.
Remember, Joshua 23:10 One man of you shall chase a thousand: for the LORD your God, he it is that fighteth for you, as he hath promised you.
