I really do have to get better at posting this blog daily. : ) I get busy and tired. I guess I am giving in to complacency sometimes as we all do. Anyways, God says it’s time to take our lives to the NEXT level of glory. I can tell ya, I love the view from where I am sitting. We worked on finishing my house this weekend. It’s all organized and it is fit for the Queen and King of God to reign and rule their lives from their place, oh yeah…..don’t forget the little princes, Dylan and Isaac. : ) Isaac has officially moved out of mommy and daddy’s room into his own. We are going through the adjustment phase. I can’t sleep without him….hmmm…..It’s good that he grows though. I woke up so excited in my spirit Sunday morning BEFORE I got to church. I set the expectation in my heart that God would move mightily through his people. Guess What? He did. My FB friend from Nigeria, Prince Deij Adekoyah was in town to preach. I love the king. he is so sweet. What I didn’t know about my friend is that he WAS temporarily blind. God had a divine appointment for us both. I prayed for a woman and Deiji. By the end of service, he was recognizing his Facebook family. : ) Praise God!!! I have been healed and completely set free from Bipolar Disorder and Fibromyalgia. No more doctors, and meds. I am still going to counselling to take my relationships and business (es) to the next level. As if this was not enough, God had even more in store for me. I tell ya NOTHING compares to the natural high God and his vitamins can put you on PERMANENTLY. I decided to go back to my Zumba class after being absent for weeks. My Jeep had broken down and was in the shop for 3 weeks. It felt like foever to me. I felt like a fish in a dry fish bowl. Before Zumba class, one of my favorite friends was giving out samples of this stuff called Spark. It’s an all natural energy drink. I really pushed myself in Zumba and got too hot. I almost got sick. Jenn(my friend) checked on me and I told her that I was fine. I had to go potty too so I was in the bathroom like 2 almost 3 songs. Yeah, it was like that. I drank tons of water. After i wiped my face, I felt much better. Half way through my workout, Spark kicked in. Usually, I get tired midways through my workout. With Spark, I wasn’t tired at ALL. I had so much fun. I wanted to keep going. I felt like a Zumba instructor. It was AWESOME. I immediately asked Jenn how much Spark was. She was so gracious, she called me with her mentor, Keisha and gave me all the details about Advocare and Spark. Next payday, guess what I am doing? Starting my 24 day challenge. I can’t wait. Before and after pics coming soon to blogs near you. : ) I was 202 when I started my weight loss and fitness goals. I am now 186. I have been stuck there for a while but am losing the belly fat and starting to build lean muscle. The 24 day challenge will get me looking good for Thanksgiving which is GREAT because my sissy and I are taking photos at that time. : ) My daughter will be with me too!!! She’ll see the difference as well. I am 100% medless for the last two days and I have never felt better. : ) No more Bipolar disorder, no more depression, no more pain. Yay! I know what to do to be victorious now. Time to take everything to the next level. I got invited by Jenn to go away to Dallas this weekend. I really, really, really wanna go. : ) I only have to pay like 43 bucks to stay in a 3 star hotel with food included. I have a ride n gas paid for. Please God provide me a good sitter for the boys on Friday at 4-5:I really do have to get better at posting this blog daily. : ) I get busy and tired.

Dealing with Territorial Spirits

  1. The spirit world is not for amateurs, spiritual knowledge brings GREAT responsibility.  We are accountable to God for our knowledge to help others.  There is always a price that has to be paid for this type of knowledge.  I am not saying I have the knowledge but am learning it for a reason and that primary reason is to help those who want the knowledge to live passionate, glorified, real, authentic, serving lives to God’s glory and that alone. It’s to help ease your earthly suffering while we bring heaven to the earth once and for all.  With that said, the path is often difficult and only those who know how to persevere in faith are successful.  There is always a confrontation that happens when you start to minister.   Physical symptoms of a territorial spirit might include fear, upset stomach, and buzzing in the ears that makes you feel dizzy and confused.  Your ministry is a threat to their rule over the people of that area. Generations of witchcraft were probably practiced in the area that you experience these things.  The witchcraft can have a religious packaging. God provides a way of escape if the people will repent and seek Jesus wholeheartedly. This spirit tries to intimidate you with threats in an attempt to FORCE God’s servants to back off.  Don’t back off. Stand in the Word of God and let it proceed out of your mouth in AUTHORITY.  The spirits are afraid they are going to lose their power base and their ability to rule over the people.  Trust that the Lord will protect YOU and all of those you are associated with.  In Mark 5, Jesus met a man who had demons and lived among the tombs.  These spirits in him were called “Legion,” for they were many.  “The spirits begged Jesus again and again not to send them out of the area.” (5:10)  They had a lot of power that particular area, because raised pigs, contrary to the commands of the Lord.  They tried to bargain with Jesus to send them into a herd of pigs, so that they might remain in the area.  We must not think that Jesus complied with their wishes.  He used this incident to show us that demons are real entities, not someone’s overactive imagination or cultural superstition.  Only real entities could affect a herd of two thousand pigs enough to drive them into a frenzy down a steep bank on the run into a lake and drown.  Ironically, the spirits ended up without a place to dwell and probably had to go where the Lord sent them. 
  2. Another scriptural example of territorial spirits is provided in Daniel 10.  the angel messenger told Daniel that the answer he had been bringing in answer to his prayer had been delayed for three weeks because a demonic prince overPersiahad detained him.  The messenger said the angel Michael had come to his aid (10:13).  The angel also said that he would have to fight against the demonic princes ofPersiaandGreeceon his return and that he would have only Michael to help him (10:20-21

 

 

Be careful of healing witchcraft. It is psychic healing with religious packaging. This concearns me personally because I LOVE healing.  I am not a “religious” person. I am a Bible believing, toting, Word reading, Bible living, precious woman of God who genuinely wants to see people healed for God’s glory and that alone. I do research healing in all kinds of ways but I believe in prayer for healing and the laying on of hands as described in the Bible. The Bible and time with the Lord is my authority I am submitted under. For an overview of what I truly believe, please visit http://www.champschurch.com. They are my leadership. : ) I love love love love my church family and am so very blessed.

 

Call in backup, get your prayer partners praying AND ministering with you.

Bind the territorial spirit and all other demonic spirits, Some high ranking spirits actually thrive on the battle and often we are led to switch course and pray against them. There are some territorial spirits that are extremely powerful that require a lot of prayer support to contend with them. We are always dependent on the Lord and HIS authority given TO US to defeat this spirits as the devil is a defeated foe. In Isaiah 14 and Ezekiel 28, we notice that Lucifer is the power behind both the king ofBabylonand the king ofTyre.   Their domains were really his domains.  It brings to mind the offer that the devil made to Jesus when he tempted him in the desert (Luke 4). “The devil led him up to a high place and showed him in an instant all the kingdoms of the world.  And he said to him, ‘I will give you all their authority and splendor, for it has been given to me, and I can give it to anyone I want to.  so if you worship me, it will all be yours.’ “(Luke 4:5-7) Jesus did not challenge that statement, because it was true.   Jesus even called him the “prince of this world” in John 12:31.  He rules over the kingdoms and countries working through the rulers and governments.

 

Don’t get slack or weary contending with these spirits. We as Americans are spoiled-we like variety and change. When we act spoiled, slack and do not engage in spiritual warfare, problem after problem begins to develop. People begin to attack each other.  Don’t get caught up in putting out “fires.” These are minute details. Focus on the actual ROOT of the problem: The territorial spirits not the people manifesting them.  Being slack spoiled and not at war allows these spirits to reorganize and retaliate against us and wreak havoc. They keep you so busy and off balance that we forget about our mission. Persevere in what the Lord wants you to do.   

 

Territorially, Satan is the “prince of this world.” (John 12:31; 14:30, 16:11) has his kingdom organized on many levels with his princes serving him keeping this world in bondage. Look around at all the perverse things that happen. You know in your heart that this is true and not what we were created for. We were created to be in relationship with God, a romance, a great adventure not despair, sickness and death. Not work yourself to death and have NOTHING left. We cannot allow ourselves to be overwhelmed by the magnitude of the problem(s). We have to keep focused on Jesus and be obedient to the calling that he has given to each one of us. TheKingdomofGodneeds to increase its presence not presents in the world and one day, Jesus will usher in the Kingdom in its entirety.  The battle is God’s and we are his warriors that await his command.

Much Love and Light in Jesus Christ of Nazareth,

Uncluttering

What does an uncluttered mind look like?

It is peaceful, undisturbed.  The actions you take are efficient, productive. You feel light, calm and alive. Take any thought pattern that holds you back and ask these questions:

Do I need this? Is it essential or necessary?

Does it serve me? Is it helpful or useful?

Am I attached to it?   Can I let it go?

Does this thought or feeling comfort me in some way?

Turn your thoughts away from non-essential thought or feelings every time it arises.  With great wisdom and love, simply notice, inquire, receive and watch what happens.

http://aflourishinglife.com/2010/10/a-simple-guide-to-decluttering-your-mind

As I write this post, I am decluttering my home with the help of my amazing mother. I have learned one thing about myself over the past two months; I tend to make things more complicated than they really are.  It’s okay, self awareness is a precious gift and shining the light in the darkest of places is how we heal and grow spiritually, mentally and physically. I have also become increasingly more comfortable in my own skin. I am starting to develop more self confidence.  I am learning what pushes my buttons and what doesn’t.  I am getting ready to start my 6th semester in college.  I am working on getting my in Psychology.  I am also starting a second job on October 24th plus I minister at my church. To make this long story short, I don’t have time for any kind of clutter. I am kicking it out of my life for good. What I have noticed in un-cluttering our home is everyone’s mood elevated. I feel more confidence because now my house looks like a home and feels like a place I want to be.  What happened to me was we moved into a very old house that noone took care of before. Then, I got discouraged and kinda let it go. Wellll…..I finally asked for help and got it.  I am so glad for my mother. She is amazing. She is the organizational queen.  We have used things from both of our houses to redo this place. It looks amazing.  It feels amazing. It’s going to put my mind at ease so I can get the things done that God has called me to do.  Now, all that is missing is my Jeep to come home.  3 weeks with no car has been quite an experience. : )

My advice: Get your mind and home uncluttered.  It will help ya feel much better. : )
