I am accustomed to being home alone occasionally, as my husband sometimes travels for a week or two at a time for his job. I’m never afraid or bothered in being alone during these times. By personality trait I’m a bit of a loner to some degree, so my time alone isn’t heavy, and is normally spent in fellowship with the Lord. I enjoy socializing but I also very much enjoy private time. With having that foundation laid down, I’ll share with you my unusual experience from last week, while my husband was once again out of the state.
In the morning, I awoke to a slight uneasy feeling. I couldn’t place what it was about, although I didn’t sense that it had anything to do with something bad happening with family members or loved ones. As the day went on, I could not shake this uneasiness and, in fact, it continued to grow stronger. By the evening, it had become so strong it was no longer merely an uneasiness, but fear was setting in. This is an unusual occurrence for me. Typically, by nature, I’m logical and calm in the face of situations other people might find themselves fearful in.
I had become so unsettled by nightfall, I decided to carry my ‘element of protection’, of the natural sense, along with me as I moved about my house. Shortly after I grabbed it, my outside dog, began to bark furiously as if very angry about something. This is something I had not heard him do before. He’s a very mild mannered animal that loves everyone, so this was an unusual sound coming from him. I’ve heard him bark to alert of someone being on the property or another animal passing through, but not with this same anger he was displaying. Then, while he was fiercely barking, it was as if something hit the side of the house in which I was in, at that time. There was a very loud ‘thud’ against the outside of the house. I couldn’t imagine what it could have been, as it wasn’t even on the same side my dog was at, barking furiously. I began to hear noises here and there as if movement was taking place, but nothing that I could pin point of what it clearly was. As a person who does not normally become afraid in this type of situation, fear was now gripping me. The sounds I was hearing were very much in the natural and the only thing I could think of was, I was alone and someone was breaking into the house.
I went through the house and checked all the doors to make sure all was secure, and they were. After some time passed, I then went into my bedroom, as it was getting to be late, making sure my bedroom door was locked, as well. After I was in there for a bit, all seemed quiet and I was finding peace once again. Just as I was about to call it a night, the doorknob to my bedroom rattled as if someone was on the other side of the door, trying to get in. I literally froze up with fear. I cannot recall having so much fear overcome me, probably since childhood. I was frozen, I felt as if I couldn’t move. I sat there, listening, praying for protection, and not moving for probably the better of ten minutes. Finally, I decided I could hear no movement whatsoever, anywhere in the house so it was time to face my fear. If someone was in the house, they were in there whether I was afraid or not and it was time to be brave and do whatever might come next. So, I unlocked the door and walked out. I walked through the entire main floor and nothing was any different than what it was before I had gone to my bedroom. Doors were still locked, nothing moved out of place. All well peaceful throughout the house.
I must tell you, this made no sense to me, because I heard everything as clear as a bell, in the natural. My dog was even upset about something he had obviously witnessed. The next morning, my son walked around the outside of the house for me, and he found nothing had been disturbed whatsoever. The loud thud against the side of the house; I had no explanation for. It was quite confusing to say the least. I no longer felt that sense of uneasiness, it was gone completely, and all was back to normal.
A couple of days later, as I was driving home from the store, out of the blue, giving the fearful situation no thought at that moment, the Lord spoke to me; “the experience you had the other night was the releasing of the spirit of terrorism.” Oh wow, that made sense. Terror! Yes, that’s what I felt. The day of the terror attack, so to speak, all day I had a sense of foreboding that grew stronger and stronger, until the actual ‘terror’ overcame me with fear, rendering me as if chained and frozen.
In my mind, since I could hear everything happening in the natural, it seemed as if an attack in the natural was the reality. Had I known it was spiritual, I would not have found myself so frightened but knowing how to alleviate it quickly. On the contrary, this so-called attack, which wasn’t really that at all, was deceptively posing as if was - of the natural sense. Isn’t that what has been taking place within our country? What we hear and see taking place, appears to be attacks in the natural, but in reality they are attacks coming from the spiritual realm.
“For God, did not give us a spirit of fear. He gave us a spirit of power and of love and of a good mind.” 2 Timothy 1:7 (New Life Version)
You see, fear is from the enemy. Partaking in it in any form, succumbs us to the enemy’s divisive plans and paralyzes our faith, and all that we have been equipped with. It causes us to function from a false mindset, and obviously removes all ability to be powerful in the effectiveness of faith. We cannot operate in fear and in faith simultaneously. When we come into agreement with fear, it cripples our mind so it’s no longer functioning in a complete soundness, and it consequently causes us to respond to situations in a manner we otherwise would never think, or want to do. Why? Fear distorts reality, therefore, when we operate in fear, we buy into the lies of the enemy for us, rather than the unseen truth of God’s plan for us.
Even though the enemy could launch a plan of attacking me with fear, it was only via sound effects and was not allowed to touch me in any way. I now have a discernment as to what the spirit of terrorism feels like when in the land, and what it’s tactics are. The rattling of the doorknob was just that, merely a rattling. It was a display in which, the Lord allowed to bring greater discernment and insight to me, and for the Body also. The enemy rattled the doorknob, but could not gain entrance. I was protected by the unseen God (in the natural) and the angelic hosts gathered about me that I was unaware of.
There has recently been an assignment upon this land from the enemy. The assignment has come through the spirit of terrorism being unleashed throughout our land. There is a GOOD plan of God for this country, and for the Body. The enemy is very much trying, in a desperate attempt to avert our attention from the promises, desiring us to focus on what we’re seeing, and especially what we’re HEARING in the natural. If he can dislodge our faith and cause us to respond in fear, then the battle is on and we’ve become at a disadvantage. But! If we keep our eyes on the Lord and stand in peace, we are not shaken, rather, the enemy is shaking in the presence of the strength of our faith.
When the feeling of foreboding comes knocking at your door and wiggling the doorknob, don’t succumb to it, turn away from it, giving it no place to manifest Its deception. We may be allowed to discern the enemy’s presence for reasons of intercession, but our responsibility is to pray in faith then, know God has heard our prayers and therefore answers our prayers. Then rest, in Him.
Until this recent experience, there was a similar experience I had years ago, but not thought about in quite a while. This current encounter reminded me of it once again. While on a ministry trip, I had been staying in my host family’s RV which was located at their residence in a secluded location along the foothills. On that ministry trip, I had taken my children along with me, as it was a bit of an extended time away from home. After my children were all asleep one night, and I had just laid down in bed, I heard the wind suddenly pick up. It sounded as if it were swirling around the RV, and my thought was, there’s a storm brewing. Then I heard what sounded as if something hit against the outside of the RV. I was puzzled as to what I might have been hearing. Violent storm maybe? Although, I saw no other signs of a storm, only the sound of swirling wind. The banging began to encircle the RV as if people were outside hitting it with their fists, possibly. The noise of it moved along as if they were walking in a circle while knocking on the sides of it. I got up and went to the window to look outside, but could see no one. I stood at the door, with the mindset that if they were coming in, they’d have to go through me before they’d get to my children. The banging moved and stopped right at the door, and whoever it was, began to rattle the door handle. The door had a window, so I decided to pull back the curtain to get a look at who it was behind this ordeal. I pulled it back, and saw nothing. No one. As I walked all around the perimeter of the RV, looking out the windows, I saw no one, or any type of reason behind the banging noises. I sat down, very confused and began to ask the Lord to show me what was taking place. He then told me, “There are witches in the land, angry that you are here prophesying My promises into the land. They have sent an attack against you.” I took authority over the situation, gave it to God, then went back to bed and slept peacefully.
I had not mentioned this incident to anyone yet, when one of my intercessors called me a few days later. She asked me what had taken place on ‘such and such’ night. I inquired as to why she was asking, and she informed me, the Lord woke her up in the middle of the night, told her to rally some more intercessors to pray for me because there had been thirteen demons sent on assignment against me. Thank God for obedient intercessors that listen to the voice of the Holy Spirit. I continued my time of ministry there and continued to prophesy into the land as the Lord led me to do.
Intercession is powerfully effective! My friend and the other intercessors who were praying for me that night, did not immediately see the effects of their prayers. In fact, had she not called to ask me, they would have never known what had taken place nor how powerful their intercession truly was. Don’t allow discouragement to set in because you’re not immediately seeing the results of intercession. There is much activity taking place within the spiritual realm and the hosts of Heaven that cannot be immediately discerned with the natural perception. Preparation takes place within the unseen realm, to manifest what is to be the product of intercession, into the natural realm of perception. Much like, we do not (without modern tools of technology) see the unborn baby developing. There may be signs here and there of its growth, but we cannot see it with our natural eyesight, until the day of its birth. So, it is also, with that which our intercession is forming. We may see signs here and there of the development, but the actual manifestation is not until the day of its assigned birth.
The enemy has launched a powerful attack with the spirit of terrorism. There is no cause to be afraid, but it does give us a responsibility to not sit back idly and watch it play its course. We’re to intercede on the behalf of our President and his family, on the behalf of our country, (even for those who seem to have succumbed to this spirit and are acting out per its influence), and finally, for the Church.
I have been discovering, many, if not most of the words I prophesied in 2007, are for this present time. Especially the words that have a political orientation. Little by little, as I have been prompted to do so by the Holy Spirit, I have been posting those words on my website. There was this one specific word I came across several weeks ago, but felt it was out of timing to post. I picked it up a few times thereafter but could not find the witness of its timing, until after the encounter I had with the spirit of terrorism. While I was dozing off in bed a couple of nights afterward, I heard the Lord clearly say, ‘now, it’s time for the word about witchcraft’.
Keep in mind, terrorism is all about, using extreme fear for coercion, which is manipulation - and we know manipulation is witchcraft.
This word was originally prophesied on August, 4th, 2007; (it is a ‘now’ word) “The Lord is speaking to me; There has been a release of witchcraft from the enemy to bring a sense of foreboding to My people. There is subtlety in this assault in an attempt to be undetected. The plan of attack is to bring a feeling of lost promises to My people, that you may lose sight of where I have you headed.
I speak My truth to you, that you may be free from the entrapment of the foreboding lies of the evil one. Do not take your eyes off the promises from Me and let them remain alive within your heart.
The time of reward of promises fulfilled is at hand. The silence that you are encountering is not loss, but the final touches in the process of preparation. Quiet your heart and be still and know that I am God. Do not turn in another direction as your enemy has planned for you to do. Stay on the course that I have set you on, you are heading in the right direction as you will soon see.”
