WHAT TO DO WITH DEMONIC RHEMA
If a person perceived that something they saw or heard or a
dream, etc was demonic, would you try to sort out its
meaning and pray to bind it? Would you try to discern where
it was coming from, what door, etc?
Sandy, what do you do? Just bind it and keep on going? I
would want to know what its root is, why it is there etc.
(Maybe that is not necessary, but rather a distraction. I
guess that could open doors to the demonic too...)
So how would one know if a vision is a distraction or really
something to dig into? Just over time, by the peace or lack
thereof that accompanied it?
These are good questions and from my experience there are 2
different kinds of people/ ministries that interpret and
apply visions. I know one church and pastor that is one of
the strongest warring churches I have ever known. They
receive all visions, whether demonic or not and they take
everything seriously and pray over all and war against the
demonic. This was actually the flavor and DNA of that
church, all the way down through their deliverance dept.
For myself, when I see or hear something demonic I
immediately bind it and command it to shut up and leave in
Jesus Name. I don’t listen, ponder a meaning or give it any
attention at all. I was trained as a warrior and learned
that life and the Lord radically intervened and turned me
into a lover instead. It doesn’t mean I let down my warrior
reflex even a tad, but it means that my focus, my attention
and passion is totally and completely in the opposite
One of my favorite testimonies is when the devil appeared to
Smith Wigglesworth and he opened his eyes and said, "Oh its
only you." Then he turned over in bed and went back to
I remember one vision the Lord gave me about this. I was
lifted up and I saw a scene that was quite revealing. It
was like a circle of different groups of people. On the
outside, I saw all these witches sending in curses. And I
saw a ring of warriors that were facing the witches head
on. These warriors had their backs to an inner circle. In
the inner circle, there were a bunch of people facing IN
towards one Person. Jesus was mingling among them and
ministering to them. I heard the Lord tell me not to mind
what was going on outside of the circle.
I live my life to attain an open porthole/heaven where I
will not see or hear the demonic. It is my daily passion to
keep heaven in and hell out. My husband is in the same
place and heart. We have had this pursuit for years and
years and years. Once you begin to flow in what is
available in the Lord, it is agonizing to go back to any
kind of compromise where the devil gets in to the porthole.
Thus it becomes a life
time commitment to live towards the place where we say the
devil has nothing in me and we can walk with heaven on earth.
I fight almost every day to get there and stay there and
keep the demonic doors closed.
John 14:30 NKJV
...for the ruler of this world is coming, and he has nothing
Eph 4:27-28 NKJV
...nor give place to the devil.
James 4:7-10 NKJV
Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee
from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you.
Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you
double-minded. Lament and mourn and weep! Let your laughter
be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom. 10 Humble
yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you
