THE NAME OF THE SPIRIT OF FEAR: IMMANI
Word given to Mitt Jeffords
In a dream, I saw standing before me a man-like figure that was about my size. He was completely clothed from head to foot in black garments, just like an Islamic terrorist or a Japanese ninja. The only part of his body that was exposed was the small slit opening where his eyes were located. When I focused my attention on his eyes, I saw that they did not appear as human eyes because they were solid red. Whatever this creature was, I could clearly see that all of his focus was completely on me. He was not only intently staring at me, but he was doing it in the most intimidating manner that anyone that has ever tried to look at me in this manner. I then noticed that he had a name embroidered in red, the same red as his eyes, and his name was Immani.
Then the Lord spoke to me and said, “This is he! This is not only your own personal terrorist, but he is every man’s own personal terrorist. This is THE spirit of fear, the ruler of darkness that brings the curse of death into the thoughts of all who are carnally minded. Immani is he that terrorizes you in your thoughts when you are afraid, or when you hesitate, or when you are insecure, or when you are impatient, or when you are confused, or when panic comes, or when your thoughts are filled with worry, or when you are uneasy and unsure, or when despair and depression find you, or when stress comes, or when you are full of apprehension, or when your thoughts only forecast doom and gloom, when you are restless, or when you are frightful, or when you are full of dread, or when are anxious, or when you are nervous, or when you feel hopeless. This is Immani. You will find Immani in all paranoia and in every phobia. These fears are some of the miseries that Immani uses to terrorize men in the imagination of their thoughts. Just as pride comes to bring sin into every man’s life, Immani comes with the curse that brings the miseries of death into the thoughts of all who are carnally minded, whether they know it, or not.”
Revelation 3:14 “And to the church in Laodecia write….17 “…and you do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked.”
End of dream
When I woke up, I just laid in bed for a few moments trying to comprehend and grasp the awesomeness of that which the Lord had just revealed to me. For the past 7 years, as you many of you know that have kept up with the revelations that Father has given to me, the Lord has not only revealed deep things that have been hidden about Father’s heart and mind, but so also has been revealing deep things about our hearts and minds. When many of these revelations have come to me, they would literally take the breathe out of me, and I would sometimes just lay there for hours trying to recover from the light that had just shined into the thoughts and intents of my own heart and mind. The Lord has used these dreams and visions to correct, to sanctify, to purge, and to prepare all those who hear his words for his coming. The Lord has also revealed through these visions and dreams that he has exposed to me the intense hatred that Satan has towards all of mankind, and especially towards the saints. The Lord has revealed many of the motives and the schemes that Satan’s hatred seeks to exercise against us all. I knew from the moment that I received this dream that there was something so different about it, but I could not at first discern what it was.
Since the Lord first began to reveal my fears to me, I have to come to know that they were not just some troubling thoughts floating around in my head, but they were the actual thoughts of unclean spirits whose only desire was for me to bow my heart to follow their instruction. I had no idea just how great my bondage was in following after these fears were until the Lord started revealing just where these counsels were coming from that had been hidden in the darkness of my mind.
But the Lord was no slack in leaving me alone with these unclean spirits because at the same time, he began to give me new revelations of his love: his perfect love towards me that casts out every fear that has been revealed to me. I know now, that as soon as I see any counsels that may appear in my thoughts that bring with them any anxiety, or, uncertainty, or stress, or hesitation, or worry, that I just pray and ask the Lord to cast these spirits out; and he who is faithful and true does for me exactly what his word says that he will do for those who believe on him. If I had not seen these fears, I would not know just how mighty God is in his power nor how great his love is towards me, and toward all men. All that I have done has called out on his name, and like every good Father, the Lord comes and delivers me from that which was troubling me.
Romans 8:15 “For you have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear; but you have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father.
I Corinthians 4:5 “Therefore judge nothing before the time, until the Lord come, who both will bring to light the hidden things of darkness, and will make manifest the counsels of the hearts: and then shall every man have praise of God.”
Psalm 34:4 “I sought the Lord, and he heard me, and delivered me from all of my fears.”
The Lord has blessed me so greatly with the faithfulness of his love in that I cannot recall ever being fearful of seeing what unclean spirits of fear may be dwelling in me, He has also blessed me with the belief that knows that as soon as I judge the fears that have been brought into the light, and call on the Lord, then he has always come quickly to deliver me from their torments. The most surprising the thing that the Lord opened my eyes to see was that no matter what circumstance or situation that has arisen in my life, that if I looked, I could always find some manner of spirit of fear there, disguised in some form of counsel that would appear to be there to help me in my decisions, as though it was some kind of friend to be trusted in. “What if this happens or what if that happens” is the classic introduction that the spirit of fear uses to entice us to open the door to our minds and allow for him to come in.
After I finished remembering these things, my mind then returned to the present, and the Spirit of the Lord suddenly quickened to me the story where Jesus was about to cast a certain demon out of a man, but before he did, he asked the demon to tell him what is name was. The demon answered him and said, “Legion; because we are many.” Then, in that very moment, the Lord gave to me the revelation of just who Immani was; he was THE spirit of fear from which all of the other spirit of fears come from.
I then realized that over the past few years, I had only been confronting and dealing with the spirits that have come forth from Immani, and not Immani himself. And immediately I asked the question, “Lord, are you trying to show me that if Immani is cast out, just like Legion, then all of these many, many unclean spirits that with him or in him will also be cast out?” I did not wait for the Lord to answer me before I immediately jumped out of bed and went to my computer to look up the definition of this Immani, simply because the Lord has taught me that the definition of a name reveals the nature, the character, and the authority of that which accompanies the name. The first thing that I found out was that Immani is the feminine form of the name Immane; and these are the definitions that I found for Immani/Immane; the name of my own personal terrorist, as well as yours.

I cannot tell you how blown away I was after hearing the Lord tell me that Immani was my own personal terrorist, and here I was reading these definitions that perfectly describe the oppressive reign of terror that fear rules over the thoughts of men with. Immani was truly like the mother ship from which all of the other spirits of fear come forth from; and it is their miserable and tormenting counsels that allow for the curse of death to rule over the thoughts of the carnal mind. “Inhumanly cruel?” What better word to describe that which is not human, but shows it’s cruelty in the way that it constantly torments men in their thoughts with stress, confusion, insecurity, anxiety, suspicions, dread, uncertainty, and worry. After reading these definitions, I had no doubts about anything that the Lord had just revealed to me in my dream. Truly, Immane is not only mine, but he is every man’s own personal terrorist.
As I was reading these definitions for Immane, I did not think for a moment that it was by any coincidence that Merriam-Webster’s gives the pronunciation of Immane as I-’man; for I have never encountered any unclean spirit that has not attempted to take control of my thoughts by any other means than by boasting itself in it’s own arrogance, as to imply that the Lord God himself is not able to deliver me from it’s power.
It is in this same manner of boasting that Sennacherib, the king of Assyria boasted against Judah. It is also in this same arrogance that I heard the voice of Immane professing and boasting of his reign over the thoughts of men saying, “I’m man (I-’man)”, and man is me”; and there is nothing that any of you can do about it. But concerning the boasts of Sennacherib, Hezekiah said before the Lord, “Lord, it is true that there is none who have been able to deliver themselves from the hand of Sennacherib (Immani), but Lord, you come with your mighty hand to deliver us so that the world will know that truly, you are the sovereign God that reigns over all the heavens and earth.”
It is written, “A man is that which he thinks.” I then remembered that the Lord had shown to me that when my fears of my past had gotten a hold of me, I was seeing through the eyes of this spirit of fear, I was hearing as the spirit of fears hear, and I was afraid and shaking as the spirit of fear does. The spirit of fear knows nothing but the nature of fear; and when a man is overcome by fear, then all that he knows to do is that which the spirit of fear instructs for him to do in his thoughts.
So truly, Immani is boasting itself in saying, “I am man, and man is me; and there is nothing that man can do about it”. Even the most wicked of rulers, like Stalin, and Hitler, and Sadaam Hussein spent their day consumed in fears of paranoia. Where does Immani, and his legions live, and move, and have their existence except in the thoughts of all who are carnally minded? Even though the scriptures clearly identify fear as an unclean spirit, those who remain in the darkness of their own ignorance are not able to discern just how great their captivity to Immani is because the fears of Immani keep them afraid of finding out this truth. They are always bowing the knee of their hearts to believe and obey the counsels of their anxieties, their reasonings, their worries, their confusions, and their stress, not knowing that they are bowing to Immani. Natural man is so accustomed to obeying these miserable thoughts that Immani brings forth that he does not even realize that he is in bondage to obey only those thoughts that trouble and torment him. This is Immane saying, “I am man.”
Isaiah 37:10-20 “Thus you shall speak to Hezekiah king of Judah, saying: ‘Do not let your God in whom you trust deceive you saying, “Jerusalem shall not be given into the hand of the king of Assyria.” Look! You have heard what the kings of Assyria have done to all lands by utterly destroying them; and shall you be delivered? Have the gods of the nations delivered those whom my fathers have destroyed, Gozan, and Haran, and Rezeph, and the people of Eden who were in Telassar? Where is the king of Hamath, the king of Arpad, and the king of the city of Sepharvaim, Hena, and Ivah?” And Hezekiah received the letter from the hand of the messengers and read it; and then Hezekiah went up to the house of the LORD, and spread it before the LORD.
Then Hezekiah prayed to the LORD, saying: “O LORD of hosts, God of Israel, the One who dwells between the cherubim, You are God, You alone, of all the kingdoms of the earth. You have made heaven and earth. Incline Your ear, O LORD, and hear; open Your eyes, O LORD, and see; and hear all the words of Sennacherib, which he has sent to reproach the living God. Truly, LORD, the kings of Assyria have laid waste all the nations and their lands, and have cast their gods into the fire; for they were not gods, but the work of men’s hands—wood and stone. Therefore they destroyed them. Now therefore, O LORD our God, save us from his hand, that all the kingdoms of the earth may know that You are the LORD, You alone.”
Before I go any further, let me regress back to something the Lord revealed to us about four months. The Lord had spoken to me one morning saying, “If you will daily come together and pray, then I will heal of you of all things.” Here is an account of one of the healings that he has given to us, and how it came about. On one particular day, we had just finished worshipping and praying according to that which the Lord had asked us to do when Debbie, one of our brethren, asked for us to pray for her because the Lord had spoken the word “abscond” to her at least twice that morning, and she had no clue as why the Lord was speaking this word to her. Debbie then shared that the definition for abscond is: “to secretly hide oneself”. When Debbie finished sharing this with us, my daughter Elizabeth then reminded us that just the day before, when we were praying and asking the Lord to deliver my other daughter Ansley from her Fibromyalgia, the Lord gave her a vision. In this vision, Elizabeth saw Jesus just standing before Ansley. She saw that his eyes were as flames of fire, and it appeared as though he was examining Ansley’s heart or something else inside of her. Then Elizabeth saw that there was something inside of Ansley that was trying to hide itself from Jesus.
Then as soon as Elizabeth finished reminding me of this vision, I looked towards Ansley, and immediately the Lord opened my eyes so that I could see something behind the name “Fibromyalgia”. I knew that this was either a demon or a spirit of infirmity that was hiding behind this name. I immediately perceived that the name “Fibromyalgia” was just a lie; the name that man has given to this disease. Countless times over the years, we have worshipped the Lord as our healer, asking him to heal Ansley of this Fibromyalgia; but to no avail. Many times we have bound up “Fibromyalgia”, also asking the Lord to bind it up in heaven, but nothing. Then the Lord said to me, “This spirit will only answer to it’s name, and as long as you keep calling it “Fibromyalgia”, it will not be required to answer you because that is not it’s name.” I then realized that this demon or spirit of infirmity, it was hiding behind the lie named “Fibromyalgia” so as to keep us from coming to know the truth of it’s name.
I then stepped towards Ansley, and laid my hand on her forehead. I then, in the name of Jesus, commanded this spirit to tell us the truth about what it’s name is. Ansley then began to shake over her entire body, and within seconds she fell to the floor. Even in her shaking and falling to the floor, my hand never moved from her forehead. It was as though the Lord himself had joined my hand to her forehead, and no amount of physical movement turning from her could break asunder that which God had joined together. My hand felt so attached to her forehead that it felt as though her body was a part of her body, and my body a part of hers. By this time, Ansley was shaking so that a couple of the other women tried to hold her down. I then command in the name of Jesus that this demon tell us what it’s name was. Then in a very shy and timid voice, it answered and said, “Boule”. Then I bound up “Boule”, asked Father to bind him up also, and cast him out. Ansley was then set free from her 10 year captivity from it’s rule over her body. Glory be to God.
When I got home from that meeting, the Lord led me to look up the definition for the name Boule. Seeing that I had never heard of this word before, I spelled like it sounded, and looked up buel, buele, beul, beule, bool, and a few other ways that I thought this name might be spelled, but I could not find that any of words had any kind of definition that seemed like it could define the nature of this spirit named Boule. Then that night, while I was praying, the Lord gave me a vision; and in the vision I simply saw the word Boule being spelled out before me. I immediately jumped up and went to the computer to look up the definition for this spelling. And this is what I found:
WIKIPEDIA, the free encyclopedia: BOULE
In the cities of ancient Greece, the Boule was a council of citizens that were appointed to run the daily affairs of the city, by their own will.
As I meditating and considering this definition, the Lord spoke to me saying, “In the spiritual realm, there are only spirits.” With this statement, I knew that the Lord wanted me to apply this definition for Boule to the spiritual realm. Then the Lord opened my eyes to see how much the will of this spirit named Boule had controlled Ansley’s daily affairs, from the smallest of matters to the largest, for the past 10 years. Daily Ansley had afflicted with fatigue; a fatigue that was so bad that Ansley herself called it crippling. Just her normal daily activities as a wife and a mother was quite the ordeal because of how soon in the morning she would be exhausted of all her energy. She even dreaded taking her shower in the morning because the simple act of drying her hair afterwards would leave her feeling completely drained of energy for the better part of the rest of that day.
John 9:1-5 “Now as Jesus passed by, he saw a man who was blind from birth. And his disciples asked him saying, “Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind?” Jesus answered, “Neither this man nor his parents sinned, but that the works of God should be revealed in him. I must work the works of him who sent me while it is day; the night is coming when no one can work. As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.”
Acts 10:38 “God anointed Jesus of Nazareth with the Holy Spirit and with power, who went about doing good and healing all who were oppressed by the Devil, for God was with Him.”
John 8:31,32 “Jesus said to those Jews who believed on him. “If you continue in my word, then shall you be my disciples, and you shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free.”
Another way that Boule ruled over her life was with the constant pain that afflicted her with tenderness and pain in the soft tissue of her joints. Boule might afflict her for a time with pain in the tissues of shoulders and elbows, and then after a few months of this pain, he might move it to her back to inflict her with pain there. Then after some more time, he left her back and moved to her feet to make standing and walking to be very painful. To make matters even worst, you would think that Ansley would really be looking forward to getting in bed at night so that she might some might find of rest or relief from this pain, but Boule would not have any of that as he would keep her body restless and awake for all but about an hour or two, every night.
Boule also afflicted her with continual headaches and stomach irritations. But thanks be to God, and the mercies of his love, that Boule’s reign of pain and suffering in Ansley’s body has now come to an end; and it all happened when the Lord led us to ask this spirit to speak it’s name to us. I then could not help but wonder what the final result is going to be in this matter, seeing that the Lord has revealed to us the name of THE SPIRIT OF FEAR is Immani.
II Timothy 2:4-26 “And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, in meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth; and that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the Devil, who are taken captive by him at his will.
One final thought concerning Boule. The ironic thing about this entire matter is that medical science, even with all of these symptoms, cannot really detect the presence of any kind of virus, or bacteria, or cancer that could be the cause of Fibromyalgia. Medical science has no equipment to detect anything that exist in the spiritual realm. It is for this reason that many doctors believe that Fibromyalgia is not a real disease, and that only exist in the imaginations of the minds of those who are afflicted by it. For this reason, Ansley’s own husband, believing these same lies, had a hard time believing that Ansley was really suffering through all that she was.
As debilitating as Boule’s reign is over those who are afflicted it, the sufferings in their physical body can hardly compare with the mental suffering that comes when those close to them reject them because they do not believe their afflictions are real because their doctors do not believe they are real. But the hypocrisy of these same doctors is there for all to see because it is a well known fact that many scientist and doctors say they do not believe in God, but only in those things which they see with their own eyes.
Not true, because they themselves are subject to the same torments in their minds when they bow before their own fears. You know, those fears that prophesy unto you what is going to happen to you if this happens or that occurs; which in turn open the door for worry, stress, and anxiety to come in and afflict them in their own thoughts. Boule and Immani are similar in that they are both spirits that cannot be seen, heard, tasted, or felt in the physical realm, but you can surely see the effect of their rule in the countenances of all those who are afflicted by them. Medical science may be ineffectual in dealing with unknown spirits and demons, but Jesus knows how to deal with them.
I was remembering what we had witnessed the Lord do to Boule when we had bound him up and watched as the Lord cast him out. I could not then help but think that the Lord had just revealed to us that the name of THE spirit of fear was Immani so that we could do the same with him as we did with Boule. But as I sat there, the magnitude of who Immani really is began to sink deeper into me. I mean, this is him, this is the spirit of fear, the enormously large spirit that legions of other fearful spirits have come forth from. This is this spirit that if cast out, takes with him the legions of all the other fears with him. Now that would be some kind of freedom.
Mark 5:8,9 And Jesus said to him, “Come out of the man, unclean spirit!” Then He asked him, “What is your name?” And he answered, saying, “My name is Legion; for we are many.”
Then the Spirit of the Lord reminded me of that which the Lord had taught me, that fear, along with false teachings, are the two major adversaries to the true faith. For we do not wrestle or war with flesh and blood, but with powers and principalities, rulers of the darkness, and wicked spirits in high places that all work together for the purpose of overthrowing the faith of the saints. Is it not written that when Jesus comes, he will be looking for those with the true faith, and not the faith that stands in the wisdom, the works, and the righteousness of men?
Then the Lord reminded me that the apostle Paul fought the good fight right up until the end of his life on earth; the fight to keep and hold fast to the faith of Christ. That means that Paul battled with this Immani right up until his very end, having never seen him completely cast out. Though Paul did not see the end of Immani, he did come into that spiritual place in his mind where he no longer believed, or trusted, or even entertained in any of the counsels of Immani’s fears. It was then really beginning to sink in what the Lord was trying to show me, that the church has never witnessed before what the Lord is getting ready to do to Immani.
Luke 18:8 “…Nevertheless, when the Son of man comes, shall he find faith on the earth.”
I John 5:4 “For whatsoever is born of God overcomes the world: and this is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith.”
II Timothy 4:7 “I have fought the good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith.”
Luke 22:31,32 “And the Lord said, “Simon, Simon! Indeed, Satan has asked for you, that he may sift you as wheat. But I have prayed for you, that your faith should not fail; and when you have returned to Me, strengthen your brethren.”
Timothy 4:1,2 “Now the Spirit expressly says that in latter times some will depart from the faith, giving heed to deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, speaking lies in hypocrisy, having their own conscience seared with a hot iron.”
I Corinthians 2:4,5 “And my speech and my preaching were not with the enticing words of man’s wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power so that your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men but in the power of God.”
Then Lord even confirmed this more for me when the Spirit of the Lord began bringing into my remembrance all of the times that Jesus said to his own apostles, “Do not be afraid“, or, “Why are so afraid, O you of little faith.” Why would Jesus have to say these words unless he knew what manner of spirit was in them, or rather, what manner of ruler was in their thoughts, not only trying to overthrow their faith, but troubling them with it’s fear? Then the Lord put the explanation mark on what he was trying to show me when he revealed to me that, just like Paul, Jesus Christ himself also wrestled with Immani right up until the end of his natural life.
It was the fears from Immani that Jesus was wrestling with in the garden; the fears that were giving Jesus counsel that was against his Father’s will and purpose. One can only imagine the manner of fears that attacked Jesus in his mind, seeing that he knew before hand that he was getting ready to be delivered into the hands of those who fiercely hated him, and that he was going to suffer many things at their hand, and then he was going to be crucified by them.
Even so, through faith in his heavenly Father’s love, he received strength from above and Immani’s will was overcome. He was then left to face his end without any fear, or anxiety, or terror, or reasonings, or panic, or nervousness, or doubts, or worry to trouble him. He was as a lamb before the slaughter. When the Lord finished revealing these things to me, I was then completely convinced that the church, or the people of God, know what it is going to be like to be completely free from Immani’s reign.
Romans 8:2-6 “For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law of sin (pride) and death (fear). For what the law could not do, in that it was weak through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin in the flesh so that the righteousness of the law might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit. For they that are after the flesh do mind the things of the flesh, but they that are after the Spirit the things of the Spirit. For to be carnally minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.”
Hebrews 5:2 “He (Jesus) can have compassion on those who are ignorant and going astray, since he himself is also subject to weakness.“
Matthew 26:41 “Jesus went a little farther and fell on his face and prayed saying, “O My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass from me. Nevertheless, not as I will but as You will.” Then He came to the disciples and found them sleeping; and he said to Peter, “What! Could you not watch with me for one hour? Watch and pray lest you enter into temptation. Indeed, the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak (fearful).”
Now that the Lord had thoroughly convinced me of just how huge this deliverance from Immani, and his hoards of demons would be, I then realized that we, at the very least, would be wise to ask for the Lord to increase our faith so as to allow for him to bring this to pass. When Jesus went into the garden, he did not go in there rebuking or yelling at these fears, but he went in there binding up the weaknesses of these fears.
The Lord recently gave a vision to help me see and understand more clearly just what it means to bind something up. Whenever I had prayed and bound up spirits in the past, I had always envisioned in my mind that this spirit was being tied up with some kind of rope, to hold him until the Lord came to cast him out. But in the vision that the Lord gave to me, I saw the spirit of Immani being bound up from head to toe with grave linens; strips of cloth that were about 2 inches wide that were wrapping him up in the identical manner that I have seen the bodies of mummies wrapped up. That in itself brought a new meaning to me for “binding up.”
John 10:17 “Therefore my Father loves me because I lay down my life so that I may take it again. No one takes it from me, but I lay it down of myself. I have power to lay it down, and I have power to take it again. This command I have received from my Father.”
Then the Lord began to explain more clearly for me just what “binding up” really means. We all belong to Jesus Christ, and our bodies are the temples for his Holy Spirit. Any time a thought in our mind, or desire in our heart, or a lust in our eyes, or any weakness in the flesh, or any pride of this life, or any sickness of the body has been judged to be unclean, or unholy, or unrighteous “in the sight of God”, then it should spiritually be bound up with grave clothes to prepare it for it’s demise and departure from the temple of God.
Jesus said that if any man followed after him, then let him take up his cross, deny (disown or dispossess) himself, and follow him down the straight and narrow path that leads to life. That is, be ready to bind up, which is to say before the Lord, “Father, I am yours, and these thoughts and desires that are presently with me are not yours. Father, I bind them up, and I ask for you to bind them up and cast them out so that you might free me and cleanse your temple of this evil counsels and wicked desires.
I bind these spirits up because I have no desire that they should have any willing influence ever again over my life.” As God is holy, so also is it necessary for his temple to also be holy. Just as it was with the temple built in Jerusalem, that it was not until it had been completely sanctified before the God came to dwell in his temple, filling it with the fullness of his glory. I then realized that it is now Immani’s turn to be bound up and cast out; and that is the reason that Father is now revealing to us in this hour what his name is. For Immani’s casting out is the end of fear’s miserable and tormenting reign over us.
II Timothy 4:18 “And the Lord shall deliver me from every evil work, and will preserve me unto his heavenly kingdom: to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.
Matthew 18:18,19 “Truly I say to you, that whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. Again I say to you that if two of you agree on earth concerning anything that they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven.”
II Thessalonians 1:7-10 “And to you who are troubled rest with us, when the Lord Jesus shall be revealed from heaven with his mighty angels, in flaming fire taking vengeance on them that do not know God, and them that do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: who shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord, and from the glory of his power; when he shall come to be glorified in his saints, and to be admired in all them that believe (because our testimony among you was believed) in that day.
As I continued meditating on these revelations, more understanding entered into me, and I realized that casting Immani out was not at all going to be like any of the many other spirits of fear that we have previously bound up and cast out. In fact, the Lord then gave me a vision where I saw all multitudes and multitudes of different kinds of fears, and they were all like thee little dingy boats that I have seen tied to the back of a sailboat, and Immani was like the world’s largest aircraft carrier which all of these little dingys were launched came from. Because of this vision, I also realized just how much larger Immani is than all of the spirits of fear put together. What would it be like if all of a man’s fears were suddenly released on him at one time? There was that herd of pigs that Legion was cast into, and these pigs found their thoughts to be so unbearable that they all ran off that cliff to commit suicide because they could not bear what had been unleashed upon them.
Then the Spirit of the Lord reminded me of the story about the time that the Jesus anointed his apostles and sent them out with the authority to cast out demons and heal the sick. But then there was this man who came to them, asking them to heal his epileptic son, but they could not do so with the anointing that Jesus had given to them. So he went to Jesus and asked him to heal his son, and Jesus did. Then the disciples asked Jesus why they could not heal the son. Jesus first admonished them for their unbelief, but then he told them that this kind of spirit could only come out with much prayer and fasting.
The spiritual fast is that time of waiting when you are praying and asking the Lord to come and perform that which only he can perform. Just like in a literal fast, it is during this time that you must deny any counsels or thoughts that tempt you to put your on hand to the matter or to turn away from waiting on the Lord. During this time of waiting, you simply continue in prayer and being still. It is during these times that the weaknesses of the flesh will be exposed, such as unbelief, or doubt, or fear, or pride will come forth to tempt us to eat the counsel of their lies rather than to wait for the Lord to come to deliver, or to heal, or to help, or to save, or to reveal, or to guide us, or whatever it may be that we were waiting on him to come and perform for us. The most awesome thing about the Lord is that when the weakness are exposed, that the Lord will come and strengthen our faith if we just ask for him to do it. I then knew that if the Lord only was able to heal this epileptic child, then how much more was it going to be needful for us to pray and fast, and continue worshipping the Lord, seeing that he only has the power to cast out this spirit of Immani; the ruler of darkness that has kept all men in bondage to his miserable thoughts.
Isaiah 58:6 “Is this not the fast that I have chosen: To loose the bonds of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, to let the oppressed go free, and that you break every yoke?”
Matthew 17:16-21 “I brought him to your disciples, but they could not cure him.” Then Jesus said, “O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I bear with you? Bring him here to me.” And Jesus rebuked the demon and it came out of him; and the child was cured from that very hour. Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and asked, “Why could we not cast it out?” Jesus said to them, “Because of your unbelief; for truly I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, “Move from here to there”, and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you. However, this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.”
Matthew 10:5 “These twelve Jesus sent forth saying…7,8 And as you go, preach saying, “The kingdom of heaven is at hand. Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely you have received, freely give.”
Epilepsy: Any of various neurological disorders characterized by recurrent seizures. Epilepsy is caused by abnormal electrical activity in the brain.
Luke 17:5 “And the apostles said to the Lord, “Increase our faith.”
Then the Lord said to me, “It is as it is written, that there is no fear in love. I am love and there are no fears dwelling in me. I told you that my thoughts are not as your thoughts. I have none to trouble or torment me in my thinking. Only perfect love is able to cast out all fear. Only perfect love is able to cast out the fearful thoughts that trouble and torment. Only my love is able to break the curse that Immani exercises over the inhabitants of this fallen world.” When I considered these words, the spirit of the Lord then brought into my remembrance the word that Father is about to speak to his elect: “Arise, shine, for your light has come, and the glory of the Lord is risen upon you.” The Lord had previously taught me that it will be in this moment that his elect will hear these words and then be perfected in his love and also be given all of the authority and power that accompanies his perfect love of God.
Then the Lord said, “My love towards you is pure and perfect; and only my love will be able to cast Immani out. Only my love is able to set you free. Only my love is able to break off this curse of darkness. Immani must first be cast out before any of my elect can be perfected because it is not possible for any fear to dwell in the perfect love of God. If any thinks within himself that he has my love, but he continues to regard worry, or be anxious, or given to stress, or nervous, or regard any kind of fear at all, then he is only deceiving himself because there is no fear in love. Though I have allowed many to taste of my love, I have yet to perfect my love in any. Now I say to you, that before you can be perfected, Immani must be cast out”, says the Lord, “Bind him up; pray and fast, and I will come and cast Immani out, the death that has cruelly ruled over all the nations of those who are carnally minded.”
I John 4:18 “There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear: because fear has torment. He that fears is not made perfect in love.”
Just when I thought that I had heard all that the Lord was trying to reveal to me about Immane, the following event occurred.
My wife has had Rheumatoid Arthritis for about 8 years, and after the first couple of months of this excruciatingly painful disease, the Lord allowed for her to go to the doctor to get some relief for her pain. Obviously, we had all been praying and hoping that the Lord was going to heal her right then and there, but he did not. But he did speak to Cathy and tell her that this was only for an appointed time, and that anytime she felt the pain was to much for her, that she could come to him and ask for his strength, and he would gladly give it to her. Many times she has had to go to the Lord for this very purpose, and many times he has shown his love faithful to her by giving her strength that she did not have. Nevertheless, after 8 years, though this disease is still in Cathy’s body, it hardly has any kind of influence or impact on her daily life at all. She even has part time job where is on her feet at all times.
Then very recently, she was talking on the phone to her sister who lives about 200 miles away. Her sister told her about a co-worker of hers that also had Rheumatoid Arthritis and that she was taking the same medication as Cathy was. She told Cathy that this co-worker had recently gotten some kind of bacterial infection from that medicine that she was taking. As a result of this infection, she got a really, really severe case of diarrhea and vomiting, and then she died a few days later.
Then just about a week later, around three o’clock in the morning, Cathy awoke with these same violent symptoms as that which this woman had. I have never seen many stomach viruses in my day, but I cannot ever recall seeing one that caused as much suffering as that which Cathy had. After the second bad episode had come and gone, I laid my hands on Cathy, acknowledged God’s sovereignty over all things, and then prayed for Father’s love to come and help her. Then we both got back into bed.
Not long after we got back into bed, Cathy had another episode, and when she did, fear and unbelief began to attack me. Now the Lord has previously delivered me from any fears concerning any sickness or disease that might attack me, and he has delivered me from all of my fears about death itself; but it was now obvious to me that I still had some fears and unbelief that the Lord was truly in control over something like this happening to my beloved Cathy.
It did not take but a few moments before my mind was completely filled with all manner of anxiety and worry about Cathy’s health. When I realized that these fears were not going to just go away because I desired for them to, I then rolled over on my face and began dispossessing them, binding them up, and asking the Lord to bind them up and cast them out. I do not know if the Lord has ever come so quickly before because I know that peace immediately filled my mind and I fell peaceably asleep within mere seconds after calling on his name.
The next morning, I went to our fellowship meeting, and there I began to share with my brethren there the sickness that Cathy had experienced early that morning. Through her entire ordeal, the thoughts never entered into my mind about the co-worker that had worked with my sister-in-law, and the idea that Cathy was suffering the same identical symptoms as she had. But as soon as I shared, the rest of my brethren reminded me of this because Cathy had told them about this woman.
Then at the end of this meeting, my daughter Elizabeth asked for prayer because great fear had risen up within her concerning Cathy’s sickness and it’s likeness to sickness that had killed this other woman. It was quite clear by this time that Elizabeth had become quite overtaken by these fears because she had almost become convinced that what had happened to this other woman was that which was also going to happen to Cathy.
As soon as I laid my hands on Elizabeth’s forehead, I saw some kind of dark spirit within her trying to hide. It was very similar to what Elizabeth had previously seen when she saw Boule trying to hide in Ansley. What I saw trying to hide in her was similar to that which you might see if you walked into a completely dark room, then cut the light on, and then some king of bug or roach run for cover. You may briefly get to see it’s movement, but it moves so fast that you cannot see it long enough to identify what it really was. This was exactly how fast this spirit was moving that I saw in Elizabeth. I then asked this dark spirit to reveal it’s name; and it did and answered saying, “Shadow”. Then the spirit of the Lord quickened to Elizabeth that which is written in Psalm 23:4 “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for you are with me; your rod and your staff comfort me”. We then this spirit name Shadow was bound up, and then asked the Lord come and bind it up in heaven also and cast it out. Elizabeth then said that she felt much lighter than before; like some darkness had just lifted itself off of her. Of course, seeing what the Lord had previously revealed to us about Boule and Immani made us all the more curious to know that which the world cannot hear. But my question in that moment was, “Why is the name of this spirit Shadow.”
The first thing that the Lord opened my eyes to see was that we are not walking through the valley of death but we are all walking through the valley of the shadow of death. I then became aware that to walk though this valley, there was going to be this temptation to fear some kind of evil. The Lord reminded me that a shadow is not the actual object, but it is only a dark image of an actual object.
Then the Lord came and gave to me the revelation of what this Shadow spirit actually is. The fear that had come upon Elizabeth was a fear that was prophesying to her thoughts to convince her that what had happened to this other woman was surely going to happen to Cathy also. To say the least, these miserable thoughts were accompanied with much anxiety, and worry, and stress to torment her.
I then saw that what had happened to this other woman was the actual event, and this spirit of fear was trying persuade Elizabeth that the same thing was going to happen to Cathy, was the shadow of the actual event. In other words, when you see evil happening to someone else, and you begin to hear thoughts that prophesy within you trying to convince you that the same evil is going to happen to you also, then you have just heard the voice of the Shadow spirit.
Then the Lord gave me another revelation where I saw that the valley of the shadow death, that it is nothing more than the daily circumstances and situations that a man encounters, from birth until death, as he walks through his time on earth. All will walk this valley, whether he is a believer or not. For it is as Paul said that it would be, that there are no temptations that confronts a believer that is not common to all men. But God has made a way for those who believe on him to escape out of them because he has given unto them the gift of his Spirit which calls out to him, “Abba, Father”.
And like any good father, Abba always comes to those who call out on his name. Those who are of the world, they see the events of the world, and hear about the events of the world, and they talk about the events of the world, and those that are of the world hears them. That is, those who are still in this world, they hear the voices that speak of the world, and they believe that those events could happen to them. All such worldly talk is the work of Shadow; and never has this talk gone more
The Lord then enlightened the eyes of my understanding to see more clearly, that the shadows that are cast into the valley of the shadow of death are cast there by mountains that completely surround it. As the psalmist says, the temptation in the valley of the shadow of death is to fear the evil that you see; and now we are in those times that Jesus prophesied of, that men’s hearts will be failing them for at seeing those events that are coming on earth; and fear is only voice of unclean spirits. God is love, and God speaks of his love, that which is not of this world. Those who submit to fears of this world are those who surrender their minds over to Immani and Shadow so they can be oppressed by their rulers of darkness. They are then daily tormented in their minds as they serve the thoughts that are sent rulers of this world for them to obey.
I then saw in this vision that it was not possible for one to pass a mountain without not having to pass through it’s shadow also. Just like in any group of mountains, I saw that each mountain had it’s own distinctive size and shape, and the shadow that each one cast was according to it’s own size and shape. I then saw the mountains were nothing more than the daily events that men see and hear about. Some of these events are smaller than the others, and some of them are larger.
I then saw that this Shadow spirit trying to prophesy his fears into each event, no matter how small or how large the circumstances or situations were. I then saw that each mountain had a name, and truly these names fitly describes the circumstances and situations that we all confront as walk though our lives.
One mountain was named, “Diseases and Sicknesses”; another, “Crimes”; another, “Old age and Dying”, another, “The Economy”; another, “Rejections”, another, “Terrorism”, another, “Job loss”; another, “Separations and Divorces; another “Famines”; another, “Personal health“, another, “Past failures, Mistakes and Disappointments”, another, “Lies and Corruption”; another, “Taxes“; another, “Wars and Rumors of Wars”; another, “Pain and Suffering”, another, “Debt”, another, “Criticisms and Accusations”, another, “Natural Disasters and Earthquakes”; and another, “Death”.
I saw other mountains also that had other names that also fitly described other events and situations that arise in a man’s life that could easily open the door for the spirits of fear to come in and take control over the thoughts of the mind.
Matthew 17:14 “And when they had come to the multitude, a man came to Him, kneeling down to Him and saying, “Lord, have mercy on my son, for he is an epileptic and suffers severely; for he often falls into the fire and often into the water. So I brought him to Your disciples, but they could not cure him.” Then Jesus answered and said, “O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I bear with you? Bring him here to Me.” And Jesus rebuked the demon, and it came out of him; and the child was cured from that very hour. Then the disciples privately came to Jesus and asked, “Why could we not cast it out?” So Jesus said to them, “Because of your unbelief; for truly I say to you that if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, “Move from here to there,” and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you. However, this kind does not go out except by prayer and fasting.”
As I was looking around at all of these mountains, I saw that which ever mountain I looked at, I saw this Shadow spirit suddenly appear standing at the top of it. He would then begin to shout out over the valley all of his reasons why men should believe the lies that would allow for his fears to take control over the situations or circumstances that they were passing through at that time. I could clearly see how these mountains represented the events that many, many pass through as the walk through their life.
I could also clearly see how this Shadow spirit was always ready to convince men to believe that they should be fearful of seeing the evil that is happening in the world around them; fearful that it is going to happen to them also. And once a man believed these lies, then he could only expect to be daily tormented and troubled in their thoughts with anxiety, impatience, stress, uneasiness, confusion, nervousness, dread, doubts, insecurity, worry, uncertainty, and hopelessness. The thing that troubled me most was that I saw that men were so used to and familiar with these types of thoughts, that no one was even aware that these miserable and tormenting thoughts were the works of darkness.
Psalm 23:4 “Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for you are with me. Your rod and your staff, they comfort me.”
John 17:15 (Jesus praying to Father) “I do not pray that you should take them out of the world, but that you should keep them from the evil.
I Corinthians 10:13 “There has no temptation taken you but such as that which is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that which you are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape so that you may be able to bear it.”
Shadow is that spirit of fear that is always trying to convince men with the thoughts that whatever evil they see and hear, it is going to certainly going to happen to them also. And I witnessed his work first hand as his fear entered into my daughter Elizabeth to convince her that her mother’s fate was certainly going to be like that of the woman that she had heard about that died. If we had not heard of this woman’s fate, then Elizabeth would simply have believed that Cathy had a 24 hour stomach virus, and that would have been it.
But she did hear about this woman as well as her fate; and as the minutes and hours past, more and more of Shadow’s evil lies increased in her to believe that Cathy’s fate was going to be the same. The more she believed his lies, the more the stress, the anxieties, and the worries began to increase in her thoughts. Then the worries, stress, anxieties, and hopelessness began to take farther down into the pit of despair.
We then laid our hands on Elizabeth and prayed for her, binding up Shadow and his lies, and asking Abba to do the same, and to cast him out. When we finished praying, I spoke to Elizabeth a word that had never before come out of mouth, and I knew that it was the Lord speaking to her. And that word was, “We do not have to play by the same rules that the children of this world have to play by. Since we have Jesus, we are not subject to the same rules that the ruler of this world dictates to those who are subject to him, which is to bow down and believe the fearful lies that Shadow prophesies to man concerning the events that occur in his life. It is as it is written, that Jesus said that he did not come to take us out of the world, but to deliver us from it’s evil. Now he has given to us the gift of his Spirit, and that spirit calls out on the name of the Lord, to allow for him to intervene into every situation and circumstance that may arise in our life. Jesus did not come into this world to change the events that occur in this world, but to change the rules which had dictated to us how we should respond to these events. Cathy did have a 24 hour virus from which she fully recovered from. But that is not what Shadow would have had any of us to believe.
Mark 16:11 “And these signs will follow those who believe…….18 they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”
While the Lord was revealing these things to us, I could not help but remember the first time that the Lord ever dealt with us about any kind of fear in my life or in Cathy’s. Briefly, Cathy had received a phone call in which she was informed that her father had just been admitted to the hospital in critical condition. Before the she left to go the hospital, she prayed and asked the Lord for his counsel and direction. The Lord answered and said, “Go, but do not fear their fears or dread their dreads.” At that time in our walk, we had never heard of any such counsel as this. It took her 2 hours to drive to the hospital, so by the time that she got there, she found that many of her aunts and uncles had already arrived.
As she began to talk with the doctors and family members, it did not take her long to realize that all of the words that she was hearing from both the doctors and from all of her family members were nothing but the counsels of their fears and dreads. And they all spoke as though they were confident that they knew how this situation was going to end. They were all convinced that Cathy’s father was either going to die or he was going to end up in nursing home for the rest of his life. After a time where all that she was hearing was nothing other than these fears and dreads, Cathy began to be overcome by them, believing that her father‘s fate was going to be just like what these fears and dreads were prophesying it to be.
But then she remembered the counsel that the Lord had given to her, and she saw that she realized that she had done that which the Lord told her not to do, be overcome by their fears and dreads (Shadow). So she went down to the chapel that was in the hospital; and there she prayed, confessing and repenting of her unbelief of his words, and asked the Lord to deliver her from the fears and dreads that had overcome her. The Lord not only forgave her, but he also delivered her completely from all of the anxieties, worries, and stress that these fears and dreads had begun to torment her with. She then returned to her father’s hospital room with the peace of God ruling in her heart. Jesus had broken the rules for Cathy that spirits of fear (again, Shadow) were ruling over the others with, Even though the spirits of fear were strong upon all the others, the presence of God was much stronger on Cathy, and all the counsels of fear and dread had become powerless to take away the peace that Abba had given to her.
She had walked through the valley of the shadow of death, and though death had briefly overcome her when she believed the shadows of their fears and dreads, the Lord quickly came and delivered her from the death had cast upon this hospital room. And again, contrary to all of the lies that the Shadow of fear had prophesied there that day, my father-in-law completely recovered and left the hospital just a few days later. Nothing us power over us except those things we choose to believe, whether they are seen or heard.
Isaiah 8:12,13 “You shall not say, “A conspiracy to all them to whom this people shall say, “A conspiracy; neither fear you their fear nor be afraid. Sanctify the LORD of hosts himself; and let him be your fear, and let him be your dread.”
I then saw in this vision that the largest mountain around this valley is the mountain called Past Failures, Disappointments, and Mistakes. Of course, if this is the largest mountain, then surely it is also had to be the mountain that casts the longest and largest shadow. I then understood that when men past though this shadow, it is when they confront today the same situations and circumstances that they have experienced in the past, but when these past experiences came into their remembrance, they were also accompanied with the remembrances of the pain that was suffered because of the failures, or disappointments, or mistakes that were made.
I then saw how this Shadow spirit would then come quickly to prophesy that if they chose to confront these same situations or circumstances, then they should be fearful of that the same failures, disappointments, and circumstances were surely going to occur also. I then understood that it is this Shadow spirit that prophesies the fears that say that the same failures, and disappointments, and mistakes of yesterday are surely going to be rule for today also.
I then began to more clearly understand that those who fear evil in the valley of the shadow of death are those who thoughts are filled with such evil fruits anxiety, regrets, frustration, confusion, stress, anger, insecurity, worry, dread, phobia, paranoia, and the hopelessness that there is nothing that can change the rules of this world for them. Those who walk in the Shadow of Immani are those who pass through the valley of the shadow of death without any hope that the events that happen today can be any different than that those which happened in the past.
As soon as their minds become troubled today, they then right today off as bad, and hope that tomorrow will be a better day. But they do not know that Immani and Shadow are today, as they were yesterday, and will be tomorrow: to cruelly rule over their thoughts. When they see the past replaying in their mind, they become fearful as they allow for the past failures, disappointments, and mistakes to dictate to them how the events of today and tomorrow are going to end. Oh, the haunts of our past.
Job 8:9 “For we are but of yesterday, and know nothing, because our days upon earth are a shadow.”
Job 10:19-22 “I should have been as though I had not been. I should have been carried from the womb to the grave. Are not my days few? Cease! Leave me alone, that I may take a little comfort,
Before I go to the place from which I shall not return, to the land of darkness and the shadow of death: A land as dark as darkness itself, as the shadow of death, without any order, and where even the light is like darkness.’”
The Lord then revealed to me that this Shadow spirit is the adversary to the word of God that says, “All things will work together for good to those who love God and are called according to his purpose”; for this is the word, that if believed, changes all of the rules that the Darkness has established in the hearts and minds of men. Those who walk in darkness have no choice but to be fearful of the events that they see and hear as they walk through their lives, while those who walk through the same valley of the Shadow of Death, and they not only do not fear any of the evil they encounter, but they are looking for God to do good in the very events that Immani and Shadow desire to do them evil. When the apostles were in that boat that was filled with water from that extremely fierce storm, Immani had them all so paralyzed with fear that they surely thought that were all about to perish.
But Jesus broke the rules of the darkness, and he was peaceably asleep while his apostles were completely tormented with their hopelessness, stress, anxieties, dread, and worry. In fact, Jesus answered them and said in Mark 4:40 “And he said unto them, “Why are ye so fearful? how is it that ye have no faith?” Fearful and no faith? When men fear, they have no choice but to live under Immani’s rules, but through faith the of Christ, men are able to believe that God is going to always work good on our behalf, even in those situations and circumstances that have an appearance of evil. The faith of Christ in us changes the rules of this world.
Galatians 2:20 “I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.”
Romans 4:20,21 “Abraham staggered not at the promise of God through unbelief; but was strong in faith, giving glory to God; and being fully persuaded that what he had promised, he was able also to perform.”
The fear reigns over the hearts of men, then men can only live by Immani’s rules. When the apostles were filled with fear, they were so blinded that they did not believe that Jesus even cared that they were perishing, much less that he could do good for them in their situation. Those who walk in the Spirit walk in the belief that God’s word is true, and that no matter what a circumstance and situation may dictate, the love of God is able to change all of the rules that the powers, the principalities, and the rulers of darkness had established over the hearts and minds of men. He who walks in the Shadow of Immani is cursed through valley of the shadow of death, and fear, and worry, and stress, and be anxious about all the situations and circumstances that he walks through. And he is especially fearful that the failures, disappointments, and mistakes of the past will also be the rule for today also.
God is the same today, as he was yesterday, and that he will be as tomorrow. God’s thoughts will be the same today, as they were yesterday, and will be tomorrow. God knows the thoughts that he thinks towards us today: thoughts to give us peace, to set us free our bondage to fear, to bless us, to do us good in all things, and to love us. God does not change, and neither does his thoughts towards us change either. As he thinks to give you peace today, to cast out your fears, to do you good, and to bless you with his love. As these were his thoughts towards us yesterday, so shall he have the same thoughts towards us today and tomorrow.
It is because of these precious thoughts that God thinks towards us that now makes it possible for all of the rules that we have lived our lives according to be changed. But without any belief of Father’s words, or faith in his love, the rules of the kingdom of Darkness will continue to reign over the thoughts in our mind and intents of our heart; that is, the laws of the sins of pride and death of our fears will continue to be the rules we live by.
And if the rules are not changed, then will continue to walk through the valley of the shadow of death fearing the adversity and the evil we see because we do not believe that the Lord, and all of his thoughts towards us, are with us. The thoughts in our minds will then become as a swamped out boat, and we will not only believe the fears, but we will also doubt the thoughts that God has towards us, not even believing that he cares for us.
Romans 8:2 “The law (rule) of Spirit of Life in Christ Jesus has made me free from the law (rule) of sin and death (the pride and fears of the carnal mind).”
Colossians 2:10-15 “And you are complete in him, which is the head of all principality and power:
in whom you also are circumcised with the circumcision made without hands, in putting off the body the sins of the flesh by the circumcision of Christ, buried with him in baptism, wherein you also are risen with him through the faith of the operation of God, who hath raised him from the dead. And you, being dead in your sins and the uncircumcision of your flesh, has he made alive together with him, having forgiven you all trespasses; blotting out the handwriting of ordinances (rules) that were against us, which were contrary to us, and he took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross. And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a show of them openly, triumphing over them (the rules of this world) in it.
Just as God does not change, neither do the thoughts that Satan, or Immani, or Shadow change towards us either. For as Satan thought yesterday to try and sift us as wheat, that is, to separate us from the thoughts of the love that God thinks towards us, so shall he think to do the same today, and tomorrow. And as Satan and Immani thought to cast the Shadow of their fears upon us yesterday, to trouble and torment our thoughts, so also shall they think to do the same to us today and tomorrow.
They are relentless in their attempts to enter into every situation and circumstance that arises in our lives to keep us mindful of their rules; that we should live only by them. It is also for this reason that they will think to do to us today and tomorrow what they thought to do yesterday, to sift us as wheat; that is, to tempt us will their fears, doubts, unbelief, and reasonings, the rules in which there is no belief of Father’s words or faith in his love. As a lost sheep is led away from the flock, so also do those who are separated from Father’s love return into the darkness, cursed to live a life that separated from being partakers of the wonderful blessings that God’s love thinks to for us.
Matthew 24:11-13 “And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall grow cold. But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.”
Romans 8:5 “For those who are according to the flesh and are controlled by its unholy desires set their minds on and pursue those things which gratify the flesh, but those who are according to the Spirit and are controlled by the desires of the Spirit set their minds on and seek those things which gratify the [Holy] Spirit. Now the mind of the flesh [which is sense and reason without the Holy Spirit] is death [death that comprises all the miseries arising from sin, both here and hereafter]. But the mind of the [Holy] Spirit is life and [soul] peace [both now and forever….35-39 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall (the events that occur in the valley of the shadow of death) tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, “For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.” Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.”
Luke 22:31,32 And the Lord said, “Simon, Simon, behold, Satan has desired to have you so that he may sift (separate) you as wheat. But I have prayed for you so that your faith does not fail. And when you are converted, strengthen you brethren.”
I John 5:4 “For whatsoever is born of God overcomes the world: and this is the victory that overcomes the world, even our faith.”
The Lord continued, “The laws of this world are the rules that come forth from the Darkness; and all that which comes forth from the Darkness is rooted in hatred. Only hatred thinks to do evil, to trouble, to lie, to intimidate, to accuse and condemn, to oppress, to curse, to kill, and to torment. The rules that come forth from above, they are rules that are all rooted in love.
Only love is able to work all things for good, to give peace, to speak truth, to show mercy and grace, to forgive, to set free, to bless, and to give life. God loves us today, just as he did yesterday, and will tomorrow, while Satan and Immani will continue to hate us today, just as they did yesterday, and will desire to do tomorrow. Seeing then that God never changes, and that he never forces himself upon us, he gives to us each day the same choice that he also gave to the children of Israel;
that which is written in “Deuteronomy 30:19,20 “I call heaven and earth as witnesses today against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing. Therefore choose life, that both you and your descendants may live; 20 that you may love the LORD your God, that you may obey His voice, and that you may cling to Him, for He is your life and the length of your days.” The rules are simple; life (spiritual mind) or death (carnal mind); the blessings of Father’s love or the curses of Satan’s hatred.
John 14:6 “Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life.”
Romans 8:2 “The law of the Spirit of Life makes me free from the law of sin and death.”
John 8:12 “Then Jesus said to them, “I am the light of the world: he that follows me shall not walk in darkness, but shall have the light of life.”
Mark 3:1-5 ‘And he entered again into the synagogue; and there was a man there which had a withered hand. And they watched him to see if he would heal him on the Sabbath day so that they might accuse him. And he said to the man which had the withered hand, “Stand forth.” And he said to them, “Is it lawful to do good on the Sabbath day or to do evil? To save life, or to kill?” But they held their peace. And when he had looked round about on them with anger, being grieved for the hardness of their hearts, he said to the man, “Stretch forth your hand“. And he stretched it out, and his hand was restored whole as the other.”
The Lord continued, “I am he who the world hates because I break all of the rules of this world. I bless when the ruler of this world curses. I give that which the ruler of this world desires to take. I give life when the ruler of this world seeks to destroy and kill. I the bring forth the light of life where the ruler of this world has cursed with death. I do good when the ruler of this world only purposes to do evil. I forgive those who the ruler of this world desires to accuse and throw stones at. I heal when the ruler of this world curses with infirmity and sickness.
I give sight to those who the ruler of this world has blinded. I give hope to those who the ruler of this world has brought despair upon. I care for all those who the ruler of this world ignores. I give joy where the ruler of this world brings sadness. I bring communion and fellowship where the ruler of this world has brought desolation and loneliness. I came into this world to break the rules of the ruler of this world.
John 7:7 “The world cannot hate you; but me it hates because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil.”
I raise the dead, those that ruler of this world has reigned over with death. I reject the proud and give grace to the humble. I cast down the imaginations of the spirits that think to oppose me and their opinions that they think are more important than my truth. I cast out all fears and set free from the demons and unclean spirits that the ruler of this world uses to torment and oppress all with. I calm the storms in the minds of those that Satan has troubled. I transform minds and create new hearts. I make ways where there seem to be no ways. I love my enemies. I forgive those who offend me. I bless those who curse me. I do good to those who hate me. I came to change the rules that have reigned over the heart and minds of my children.
I flooded the earth, parted seas, and walked across them. I broke the laws of gravity and physics. I have brought fire down from above, and stood in the furnace with Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego. I fed 5000 and rained down manna from heaven. I have brought water out of rocks, and turned it into wine. I confuse enemies, expose lies, and bring to light all that which is hidden in the darkness. I brought down the walls of Jericho, and the walls in your heart.
I cast mountains into the sea and make the impossible an afterthought. I am the love that believes all things. I am the love that believes all things are possible with God. I am the love that believes that Father can answer your prayers with blessings that exceed that which you are able to think or ask of him. I am the belief that know there are no limits or boundaries that are able to contain the love that Father desires to bless you all with. There are no rules where love believes all things. I am the love that changes the rules of this world.
He that abides in the shadow of the Lord is he whose faith stands in the love of God and who believes the promises of his words. I am the faith that works by love. I am he who walks through the valley of the shadow of death and fears no evil because there is no fear in love. I am he who see the signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars, and my heart rejoices. I am who sees the sicknesses and diseases, the wars and rumors of wars, the lies of corruption, the famines and natural disasters, as well as all of the other distress that are now appearing in these last days, and I fear none of them because I do not obey the rules brought forth by the ruler of this world. Those who believe on me shall not fear any evil because my peace shall rule in their hearts. I am the Prince of Peace that breaks the rules of the tormenter of this world. He who abides in me shall not see fear today or tomorrow because all of his vision is focused on the goodness that he knows my Father desires to bring forth in all the situations and circumstances that he confronts.”
II Corinthians 4:17,18 “For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, works for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen. For the things that are seen are temporary; but the things which are not seen (God) are eternal.”
Psalm 107:9-11 “For He satisfies the longing soul, and fills the hungry soul with goodness. Those who sat in darkness and in the shadow of death, bound in affliction and irons because they rebelled against the words of God, and despised the counsel of the Most High.”
Psalm 107:13-15 “Then they cried unto the LORD in their trouble, and he saved them out of their distresses. He brought them out of darkness and the shadow of death and broke their bands in sunder.
Oh that men would praise the LORD for his goodness, and for his wonderful works to the children of men!”
Psalm 91:1 “He that dwells in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.”
Then the Lord brought back into my remembrance a vision that he gave to me about six years ago; and in this vision, I saw myself standing before a man that was an unbeliever. I could discern that this man had never believed on God in any kind of manner. Then the Lord opened my eyes to see clearly how this man’s life was being lived according to the rules that come forth from the Darkness. I could also clearly see how Satan’s hatred had filled this man’s thoughts with many, many tormenting thoughts that were affecting every event that was occurring in his life.
I then saw that this man had no outward appearance that would suggest that he was suffering these miserable and tormenting thoughts unless the Lord had opened my eyes to see the fears that were hiding in him, just like Boule and Shadow hid themselves from the sight of men. The Lord then enlightened the eyes of my understanding to see why this man was hiding these miserable fears within him. Immani had deceived this man into believing that if a man allows for his fears to be seen, then others will be seeing his weaknesses. And in this world, men feel vulnerable when others know their weaknesses.
I could clearly see that it was not this man that was feeling vulnerable about his fears being discovered, but it was actually Immani that was feeling vulnerable that he would be exposed as the one who tormented this man in his thoughts. I then discerned that this is how fear protects itself, by deceiving men into believing that they should hide their fears, to keep them ignorant of the fact that they are only hiding the spirits of Immani, Shadow, and all of the other unclean spirits of fear.
Dr. Bill Long (scholar of Biblical words ) 7/11/05 “I am convinced that insight of all kinds of words--spiritual, practical, intellectual, literary--are always breaking forth from the Bible. All we need is an open heart to hear what is being said and a persistence to try to understand its message.”
All of these words are derived from the Latin, and so use of the OLD becomes de rigueur to understand them. Let's begin with immane. Behind this is "in/m" as a negative and "manus." The OLD has two pages on at least 25 shades of meaning of manus, which is the basic word for "hand," but then it lists another word, manus, in two lines. This manus means "good," and the examples provided have it being synonymous with bonus. It is this manus which the "in/m" is negating. Thus, something that is immanis is "savage, brutal," or, secondarily, "frightful in aspect or appearance (the notion of exceptional size is present)" (i.e., not "good").
Cicero uses the term immanissimis as a synonymn of inimicissimis (enemy), but he also uses it to describe the twisted and huge shape of a dragon. Both of its meanings, therefore, are well-attested in Latin.
When the term came into English, it maintained the two meanings, though the OED lists them in reverse order. So, something immane is either monstrously huge in size or is "monstrous" in character--inhumanely cruel or savage. In Chapman's translation of the Odyssey, he speaks of "a man in shape immane, and monsterous." But the word can be used more colloquially: "What immane difference then is there between the twenty fourth of February and the commencement of March?" Someone might have an immane conceit of himself, also. But we also have an attestation to "the immane cruelty of Hieron, the Tyrant of that City." And then, not to be outdone, OW Holmes Sr speaks of "That immane and nefandous Burke-and-Hare business."* As I think of it, I wonder
And, oh, before leaving immane, I just have to give Milton's use, from his History of England: "A man..Valiant, Liberal, and fair of Aspect, but immanely Cruel." Let's bring back immane and let it cast its huge shadow. Oops. And immanity, too. "No man can but marvel...at that barbarous immanity, feral madness, committed between men of the same nation, language, and religion.”
1. dark figure or image cast on the ground or some surface by a body
2. a dominant or pervasive threat, influence, or atmosphere, esp. one causing gloom, fear, doubt, or the like: They lived under the shadow of war.
3. an inseparable companion: The dog was his shadow.
Suddenly, the Spirit of the Lord moved upon me to step forward and stand very close to this man. I then moved towards him until I stood slightly to the left side of him, and I was so close that the right side of my face was only about an inch or two from his left side. I then raised my right hand and placed it very softly, yet firmly, against his forehead. I immediately felt like I had somehow become joined with this man in some kind of union that I had never before experienced with any other man; a union so strong that it was as though the thoughts in his mind were now the thoughts in my mind.
I could then clearly see all of the lies that Satan’s hatred had filled his thoughts with; not only with his fears, but with all manner of miserable thoughts, everything from envy, to unforgiveness, to hatred, to bitterness, to impatience, to depression. I then saw that these thoughts were not his thoughts at all, but they were all the works of the spirits of this world; and it was these spirits that kept this man mindful of the rules of this world. I did not see in this man any thought other than the thoughts given to him by the ruler of this world. I then saw that from night until day, and day until night, only vanity and death ruled over his thoughts. My heart was then filled with great care and compassion for this man because I could now clearly see that this man was truly enslaved in bondage to just these thoughts; but “just these thoughts” were making this man’s life truly miserable.
Psalm 94:11 “The Lord knows the thoughts of man, that they are vanity.”
James 4:5 “Do you think that the scripture says in vain that the scripture say in vain that the spirit that dwells “in us” lusts to envy?”
I then began to tell this man about the hatred that Satan has towards him, and towards all men. And then I shared with him how he could see this hatred manifested in his own thoughts by the miseries, the vanity, the unrest, the hatred, the dissatisfactions, the torments, and the emptiness that occupied his thinking. I also told him that it is only when a man believes Satan’s lies that the door of his heart and mind are then opened to allow the rulers of this world to come and establish their cruel rule over his thinking and desires.
I then told him how the Lord had opened my eyes to see that Satan’s only exists to serve his own lusts and pleasures; and his lusts was to steal, to destroy, to kill, to oppress, and to torment all of mankind; and his pleasures came only when he satisfied that which he lusted for. When I finished speaking these words to this man, I felt a strong stirring in this man. I then discerned that it was not this man that was stirring, but it was the rulers of the darkness within him that were now stirred up by my testimony because it had just exposed all of their hateful purposes towards this man.
John 10:10 “The thief comes not but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.”
Romans 8:6 “The carnal mind is death and the spiritual mind is life and peace.”
I then began to tell this man the truth about the love that has creator God had towards him, and that he sent his only son Jesus Christ into this world for the sole purpose to set men free from the rules of Satan’s oppression so that the peace of God could rule in his heart. I told that the love of God never ceases to think to give us peace, to do good to us, to heal our bodies, soul, and spirit, and to continually bless us with his love. I witnessed to him also of the love that God has for all men, that it is pure and perfect; that he loves us even when we are captive to the ruler of this world, and treat others in the same way that the rulers of this world have treated us.
I then asked this man if he had a desire to continue living in this bondage that Satan’s hatred oppressed him with. As I was asking this man this question, I began to perceive that this man was somehow beginning to see into my thoughts, and he could now see how the love of God had delivered me from the all of the thoughts that were oppressive to him. Of course, once this man saw what was in my thoughts, he answered, “No, I want to be free.”
I then asked him if he desired to receive the gift of the Holy Spirit, the Spirit of Jesus Christ; the spirit of truth that is able to set men free from the vanity and death of Satan’s rule. I also shared with him how God created all men for the purpose to have fellowship and communion with himself, and that only through the God’s spirit could God’s purpose for man be restored. He then answered and said, “Yes, I want the gift of God’s Spirit. I want a new life.”
Acts 26:16-18 AMP “But arise and stand upon your feet; for I have appeared to you for this purpose, that I might appoint you to serve as [My] minister and to bear witness both to what you have seen of Me and to that in which I will appear to you; choosing you out [selecting you for Myself] and delivering you from among this [Jewish] people and the Gentiles to whom I am sending you--to open their eyes so that they may turn from darkness to light and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may thus receive forgiveness and release from their sins and a place and portion among those who are consecrated and purified by faith in Me.”
Revelation 21:3-8 “And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, “Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men, and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God. And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things (rules) are passed away. And he that sat upon the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new”. And he said to me, “Write: for these words are true and faithful.” And he said to me, “It is done. I am Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end. I will give unto him that is athirst of the fountain of the water of life freely. He that overcomes shall inherit all things; and I will be his God, and he shall be my son. But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers, and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burns with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”
I then began to pray for this man, first binding up the spirit of fear, which I now know to be Immani. I then asked the Lord who is sovereign in power over all things in heaven and earth to bind this spirit up in heaven also. And when I had finished asking this, I saw this dark spirit of fear depart from. I then asked the Lord to loose the gift of the Spirit of Life into this man saying, “Father, this man desires to give to you his old life, a life oppressed by the ruler of this world, so that he might receive the Spirit of Life. Father, would you bind up the spirit of this world, the spirit that led him to live a life alienated from your fellowship and separated from the blessings of your love? Would you in turn give to him the spirit of new life that he desires to have of you? Father, this man desires to have you, all of you. He desires to have a life of fellowship and communion with your love.”
I then saw an explosion of light as this vision ended. I saw in this vision that I was testifying to this man things that I had never testified of before, and I also saw that when he received the Lord, he received in him in a much fuller way than any man that I have ever heard. I mean, it was like his old man had completely disappeared, and he was immediately perfected in the love of God. It was instant, and it was done. I then knew that this was how the Sons of God, those who have been perfected in love, are going to be testifying in these last days.
Ephesians 6:12 “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.”
John 12:31 (AMP) “Now the judgment (crisis) of this world is coming on [sentence is now being passed on this world]. Now the ruler (evil genius, prince) of this world shall be cast out (expelled).”
Romans 8:2 “For the law of the Spirit of life in Christ Jesus has set me free from the law of sin (pride) and death (fear).”
When this vision was over, the Lord then asked, “Mitt, what did you see?” I then said that I saw that it is only when the lies of Satan are believed that the Darkness finds the entrance that it needs to come in and establish the torments of Satan’s hatred as the rule that men should live their lived according to. I saw that death is truly not a physical thing, but a state of mind, and those who are resurrected from the dead are those who hearts you change and whose minds you transform. I saw that because of Satan’s malice and hatred towards man, he lusts to rule over the hearts and minds of all men with as much cruelty, trouble, unrest, torment, bitterness, worry, and misery as he can bring upon them.
I also saw that when his lies are believed, that he is then able to blind and deceive men so greatly that men do not even know that they are in bondage to believe nothing but the lies that fill the thoughts of man with vanity and misery. I also saw that the truth is that you, our heavenly Father and Creator of all, have as much love towards all men as you have towards your saints; for you are always ready to save and bless whoever will come to you. I saw that it truly is as you have taught me, that because of your meekness, you will not force your favor or the blessings of your love on any, but that it shall be given to all those who believe to ask you for your favor and your blessings.
I saw that if any man will desire to have the promise of your life, and desires to turn and believe on you as his Savior and redeemer, then your love shall surely come to him to set him free and give him a new life that is free of Satan’s rules. Lord, I also saw that you alone are the sovereign God, yet you are he who is willing to give your love, your life, and your power to those who believe on you. I saw that you alone are truly worthy to receive all glory and praise because of the great love that you show towards those who desire to have you.”
End of that vision.
After the Lord had finished bringing these things back into my remembrance, he then said, “Mitt, all those who are seeking for me, asking for me to perfect them in my love, let them know that before this can happen, they must first be willing to bind up Immani and Shadow. Let them know that when they bind these spirits up, they are showing before me that they no longer have a desire to ever be controlled or influenced again by any of Immani’s fears; for his fears are only the lies that Satan uses to rule over the carnally minded.
Let them declare before me that they are mine, and I am theirs. Let them know that every time they bind up the spirits of this world that they are declaring before me that the temples of their bodies only belong to me, and that no unclean, or defiled, or profane, or dead thing should have any dwelling in their hearts or minds. Let them know to continue binding these spirits up, continue in prayer, and continue in their fast, to wait for my perfect love to come that will cast out all fears. Let them know that when they see me cast Immani out, then tell them to look up so that they may see the perfection of my love coming to them.
Let them know that those who have been perfected in my love, they will also receive the my power and my authority that will allow for them to go forth to do for others exactly that which they have seen me do for them. Let them know that when they have been perfected in my love, that all of the love that flows from above shall also flow out of them into all those who are around them. Let them know that the shadow they cast will be much larger than the shadow that Peter cast.
Let these know that they shall receive my power and authority to go forth and cast the tormenter out of the hearts and minds of all will have will me as their friend and their God. My love will lead them to heal the bodies, the souls, and the spirits of all the wounds that have scarred them while they were in bondage to Satan’s rules. Let them know that power of heaven and earth are changing. Let them know that rules are changing. Let them know that they shall go forth to bind up the rulers of this world; for it will not be until the rulers of this world have been bound up that the kingdoms of this world can become the kingdoms of God.
Let them know that when the kingdom of God comes, then the peace of God shall rule in their hearts and minds of all men”, says the Lord. Yes, Lord; as your word is, so let it be done unto me, and to all those who agree with your words.
Luke 21:25-27 “And there shall be signs in the sun, and in the moon, and in the stars; and upon the earth distress of nations, with perplexity; the sea and the waves roaring; men's hearts failing them for fear, and for looking after those things which are coming on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.”
Not long after, the Lord gave me this vision. I saw myself wrapped from head to toe in the same burial or grave wrappings that I had previously seen. I looked just like I had seen Lazarus looked in one of the scenes from a Jesus movie where Jesus calls him to come from out of the tomb. Lazarus comes forth wrapped from head to toe in what appears like dirty white linen strips. To my surprise, Jesus comes before me, sticks out his hand, and asks if he can have this dance. As soon as we started dancing, the Lord lifted up his right hand, which in turn lifted up my hand also, and I knew that he was going to spin me around. I then saw that as I was spinning around, he was unwrapping all of these grave clothes from off of me.
It was just one long strip of clothe that had me bound up. Jesus kept spinning me around until I was completely free from all that which had bound me. And when I was free, I saw that there were two images standing there; me, and a spirit that looked like me. I then understood that this spirit was the spirit of this world that had conformed itself to my SELF-image.
I John 2:15-17 “Love not the world, neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. And the world passes away, and the lust thereof: but he that does the will of God abides for ever.”
I then saw that the Lord had set me free from this spirit of the world; the spirit that I thought was me because it ruled over my thoughts. I then saw that Jesus was now spinning this image of me around and around just like he had done with me, but instead of unwrapping this image, Jesus was binding him back up in the same grave clothes that had kept me bound up with it. Then the showed to me that this spirit had bound me up in darkness together with it because no man with a sound mind would ever willingly agree or choose to live his life in oneness and unity with a spirit that does nothing but rule over his mind with death.
It is the spirit of his world that oppresses the thoughts of men with nothing but thoughts of distrust, rebellion, doubt, fear, and unbelief towards God, the only being in the heavens and earth that loves us perfectly. It is also this spirit that welcomes Immani and Shadow into our minds to torment and terrorize us daily a daily basis with worry, paranoia, uncertainty, nervousness, anxiety, phobias, confusion, and stress.
It also the spirit of the world that delights in ruling over the thoughts of men with depression, loneliness, frustration, disappointments, vanity, hopelessness, despair, guilt, self-condemnation, and emptiness. It is this spirit that brings forth the fruit of Satan’s hatred towards men when it counsels men treat others in the same hateful manner that Satan treats us, with strife, accusations, judging others, arguments, gossip, pointing out the mistakes and faults of others, evil suspicions, fault finding, unforgiveness, malice, and condemning those that disagree or sin against us.
No man in his right mind would willingly choose to have this spirit as own personal counselor to guide him through life, especially through the valley of the shadow of death when he daily seeks to terrorize in our own thoughts. As God has said, “Your thoughts are not as my thoughts.” I then knew that the Lord had set free from all of the rules of sin and death, and that I had put off all corruption and mortality. I then saw myself free to dance with Jesus, and I willingly and joyfully followed his lead wherever he wanted to go, to do whatever he wanted me to do, and to follow him down the path of life because my thoughts and my heart were now joined with the one who blesses me with his love, gives me peace, sets me free, and always thinks to do good towards me.” You can never find any terror in the thoughts of those whose minds and hearts have been set free from him who has oppressed us with his hatred; for love thinks no evil.
John 11:25 Jesus said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in Me, though he were dead, yet shall he live.”
Psalm 30:10-12 “Hear, O LORD, and have mercy on me; LORD, be my helper!” You have turned for me my mourning into dancing. You have put off my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness, to the end that my glory may sing praise to You and not be silent. O LORD my God, I will give thanks to You forever.”
Jeremiah 31:12-14 “Therefore they shall come and sing in the height of Zion, streaming to the goodness of the LORD— For wheat and new wine and oil, for the young of the flock and the herd; their souls shall be like a well-watered garden, and they shall sorrow no more at all. Then shall the virgin rejoice in the dance, and the young men and the old, together; for I will turn their mourning to joy, will comfort them, and make them rejoice rather than sorrow. I will satiate the soul of the priests with abundance, and My people shall be satisfied with My goodness, says the LORD.”
Then the Lord brought into my remembrance a word that he spoke to me 4 years ago in a meeting in Houston, Texas; and that word was, “When the brethren come together in unity (agreement), then all of the powers of Satan are going to be broken.” And while I was remembering this word, I then heard the voice of the Lord say, “Gather”. When I heard this single word spoken, I knew that the Lord was not speaking to me, but that he was giving instruction to those angels that he has anointed to gather his elect together. I then perceived that it is when he gathers the elect that they will come together in the unity of perfect love; the perfect love that is going to break the curse of Darkness that has ruled over this world.
Though I did not see them, I heard the voice of these elect as they went forth binding up and loosing; and all that they were binding up were the spirits that ruled cruelly over the lives of God’s creation. They also were loosing the kingdom of God to come on earth, into the hearts and minds of those who had just been freed. I also heard these same voices speaking the same identical words that our heavenly Father speaks: words that give peace, that set us free from our captivity, words that heal, and words that bless us with all that God’s love desires to do for us. Whatever words they spoke, it immediately came to past because love believes all things. Then I knew that it was finished, that the thoughts of Satan that had so cruelly ruled over the hearts and minds of God’s creation would no longer be heard. The light shined into the darkness, and the rulers of this world tried to hide, but it was so late because God has now revealed their names and their purposes to men, and they knew who hated them and who loved them. Then I saw the kingdoms of this world fade away as the kingdom of God came forth. It was as if this fallen world never was.
Matthew 24:31 “And he shall send his angels with a great sound of a trumpet, and they shall gather together his elect from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other.”
God is with all of us who are with him. The love of God is yeaning to bind up and free his creation, but it can only be done for those who also desire to bind up that which God desires to bind up. If any two of us can agree on anything, then our Lord shall perform it for us.
