Summary: ...where a person cannot connect to heaven; there is no vision, no dream, no prophesy; he sees nothing, he hears nothing from God. Every thing in the spirit realm is dark, deaf and dumb there is a need for deliverance.
“He revealeth the deep and secret things: He knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with Him”.
There are some things that are deep and others are on the surface. When you want to get something that is deep, you have to dig deep to find out. Gold, oil, are treasures and they cannot be found on the surface of the ground; you have to dig deep to find them. There are some deep secrets about life and the Bible tells us that it is God that knows the things that are in secret and He can also reveal them. The word of God goes on to say that God knows the things that are in the dark; one fact about darkness, is that the person in it, can see the person in the light, very clearly but the one in the lighted area, would need special anointing to see the person in the dark. Until; certain secrets are revealed, it might be difficult to receive some victories. The enemy of our soul fights a very terrible battle for the souls of men. The devil is the father of lies, so, his tactics are very deceitful. The devil has no honour or integrity. As far as the devil is concerned, there is nothing like fairness. If you want to destroy your enemy, you would need to know his secrets.
1. Not everyone who calls G O D is calling God.
You may be surprised to find out that some people pray to petty gods and if you are not careful, you will say Amen to what they are saying. Such utterances that they call prayers, are actually incantations. In such uttering, you will never hear the Name of Jesus and they will never address the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. They will just say ‘god, god’.
“For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth, (as there be gods many, and lords many,) But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in Him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by Him”.
Many people are being deceived every day. A brother got into serious one day. He thought he had problems and a friend took him to see someone who could give spiritual assistance. He said when they got there he was taken to a room which was very dark, whereas, it was just 11 am. He also saw birds flying about and was hearing voices, as if the birds were talking. He felt very uncomfortable and he got up to leave. Just then, he sighted a Bible on a table and he sat back, reassuring himself that the Bible meant the presence of God. Someone came to ‘pray’ for him and he noticed that the person was addressing ‘the creator’ and never mentioned Jesus. He thought he was referring to God the Creator. Before he knew what he had gotten himself into, his three children were deported from abroad in one day. They were not living together but they all met at the airport in Nigeria. None of them brought back any thing. They came back empty handed and could not explain why they were deported.
That is why we should be careful where we go. If the Holy Spirit begins to rebel within you, it means you are not supposed to be where you are or you are not supposed to be doing what you are doing. If you stay on, you are looking for trouble and are likely to get it.
2. The devil has an organised kingdom
The devil has followers and emissaries and he runs his kingdom contrary to the kingdom of God.
3. The worst attack comes during sleep
Some of the problems that people are struggling with started at night, during the hours of 12 and 3 am. That is why it is advisable to stay awake and pray during these hours.
“But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way”.
4. If food is taken out of existence, demonic oppression will decrease.
A major part of the afflictions of Man comes from the food that he eats. It is a serious thing to find oneself eating in the dream. Spirits do not eat food but when they force-feed a person in the dream, the person will experience different types of affliction.
5. There are some creatures that are used by witchcraft powers, to afflict people in their dreams.
If you see the following animals in your dream, you should pray seriously, because it means you are under witchcraft attacks:
Goat, cat, rat, bat, termite, serpent or mud-fish.
