The Anti-Holy Spirit Spirit
I wish I had shared this with you before the recent shooting in Florida. Here it is now. Please pray as the Lord leads you.
The Lord has been talking with me about three high-level evil spirits that have recently been super empowered to do great harm here in America.
Here they are:
1. The spirit of unexpected, sudden, premature death. (Usually violent).
2. The spirit of extreme division (Remove a person or group of persons at any cost – violently if necessary – and everything will be ok).
3. The spirit of obfuscation. (Intentionally obscuring and making unintelligible the truth. This goes beyond confusion. It makes the truth incomprehensible).
Whenever a group of people agree that certain evil actions are necessary to protect themselves AND when that group of people is willing to do whatever it takes to keep themselves safe, these kinds of high-level spirits become empowered to do great harm.
My intercessors think that this empowerment is coming out of Washington D.C. (and possibly Hollywood) as people scramble to escape the consequences of their actions.
Our first strategy to counter this evil spiritual activity is basic repentance. Pray like this:
Father God, Creator of Heaven and Earth, I repent for myself and my ancestors for ever cooperating with, agreeing with or empowering the above spirits, knowingly or unknowingly. Forgive us for ever being willing to do anything, no matter what it is or who it harms, to hide our actions and escape the consequences of our actions. Please forgive us. In Jesus’ name I ask this.
A second strategy appears to be this:
Offering the Lord childlike, joyous praise when asking Him to destroy the plots of these evil spirits.
Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father has chosen gladly to give you the kingdom. Luke 12:32
Stay in joy, dear ones.
Please share so others can know to pray.

On September 10th, 2017, I drove my elderly mother through pounding rain to a busy emergency department. She had been scheduled to see a cardiologist on the following day, a Monday, but Hurricane Irma had just slammed into the coast of Florida. My mother’s Alabama city was flooded with refugees, and meteorologists warned that heavy rain and tornadoes were a strong possibility even as far north as Montgomery.
The night before, my mother had slept in her recliner because she couldn’t breathe lying down. I had paced the floor that night, asking the Lord what to do. Her doctor’s appointment had been cancelled. Everything was closing down. When morning arrived, I told her that we needed to go to the hospital emergency department. She rolled her eyes, but agreed.
Eight hours later she was diagnosed with an irregular heartbeat and admitted to cardiac intensive care. My brother and sister-in-law took over for me and I left to get some rest.
My mother’s home was eerily empty that night. I walked in circles, living room to den, around through the kitchen and dining room, back through the living room. As I wore a path into my mother’s flooring, I asked the Lord, “Why? Why am I so anxious? Why don’t I trust you?”
The days that followed were spent in a shadowed hospital room, watching my mother rally a bit, then slide into silence. My nights were spent alone, walking my path through her desolate house, knowing what was coming. Only a few days into my vigil, the Lord spoke to me, saying “You don’t think that I am kind.”
It’s funny how you know what the Lord means even when its days later that he answers your question. The reason I was struggling with trusting him through this transition was because I didn’t believe (in my heart) that he was kind.
My mother came home on Hospice. Two weeks after our trip through the pouring rain, she passed away. Looking back, I see just how kind the Lord was to her and to me, smoothing her passage into heaven in ways that meant the most to her. She was able to live out her very long life in her own home; she died quickly – all things considered – in her right mind, surrounded by her family. She left all of her financial affairs in order; her funeral arranged and paid for in advance, so that my brother and I had very little to do.
As the days passed, I found myself thinking about the Lord’s words to me. And I began to understand how trust grows. Trust grows in response to the consistent acts of kindness performed by the other person.
The Lord didn’t want me to be upset with myself because I struggled to trust him during that time of transition. He knows that I cannot grow trust by simply deciding to grow it; any more than I can grow sunflowers without first planting sunflower seeds.
No significant person was consistently kind to me during my childhood. As a result, trust was never produced within me. By the time I received the Lord, I was a completely unchurched young adult. When I became involved in a church, I was rigorously taught that I had to trust God. That God would reward my trust with the blessings that I desperately needed. Sort of like a system of exchange. I pay God for his blessings with trust. No trust. No blessing for me!
If you think about it, that kind of doctrine makes God look bad. I try to be kind to everyone all the time. They don’t have to pay me for it.
Now there is a time to choose to trust the Lord. To make the decision to believe his word; to walk his path. And that choice is crucial to our maturity. But there is a deeper trust. One that can only grow through relationship. That kind of trust makes us settle down in green pastures.
Therefore let us be diligent to enter that rest … Hebrews 4:11
So here is what I am learning. Kindness – God’s consistent acts of kindness towards me – is the seed that produces trust. I cannot grow it by myself. But I can participate in the process by asking him to make me aware of his kindnesses. In this dark world, it is so easy to focus on all the bad stuff. We need his help to see the good stuff he is doing for us.
(He) raised us up with Him, and seated us with Him in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus, so that in the ages to come He might show the surpassing riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. Ephesians 2:6-7
Blessings and hugs,

For the Lord is going to destroy Babylon, and He will make her loud noise vanish from her. Jeremiah 51:55
In his famous epic poem, Paradise Lost, 17th-century poet, John Milton, named the capital of hell Pandemonium. The word pandemonium means a wild uproar or a scene of unrestrained chaos and tumult. In Psalm 64, David beseeches the Lord to hide him “from the tumult of evil doers.” Tumult, according to Dictionary.com, means a “violent and noisy commotion caused by a crowd or mob.”
That we need to be hidden from tumult became clear to me while I was watching a football game between the University of Alabama and Mississippi State University. I’m not a huge football fan, but when you live in Tuscaloosa, Alabama, where college football reigns supreme it’s difficult (Ok. Impossible) to resist the tug of Roll Tide.
Inside their own stadium, Mississippi State has a tradition of ringing cowbells during games. Never was this tradition entered into with more determination than when they played against #1 Alabama. Mississippi State fans deliberately, and in unison, aimed those cowbells as a weapon against the Alabama team. Just imagine the noise in a stadium capable of seating over 60,000 people, half of whom are armed with cowbells. The resulting cacophony was deafening and deeply disturbing to my spirit.
But it’s just a football game and so what? Right? Except for this: Sound. Ephesians 2:2 names Satan “the prince of the power of the air.” Sound travels on air. Sound waves. What happens when humans join together to create a specific sound? When we worship together, in unison, we are joined by holy angels as we release life and blessing into the atmosphere.
So, what happens when we humans agree to make a weapon out of sound? Do demons join with us? I think they do.
Mississippi State was ranked #16 at the time of the game. (They were ranked #24 going into their bowl game yesterday). Alabama was #1 or 2 depending upon which poll you like. Alabama had injuries going into the game, but nonetheless they struggled in a way not seen before, gasping out a last-minute fourth-quarter victory. Today, Alabama will play Clemson to decide who will compete for the national championship.
Those were some powerful cowbells. As I considered the cowbells later that evening, the Lord directed me to repent of ever using sound as a weapon. He had me include using sound to manipulate, control, disturb or hurt. I obeyed and also repented on behalf of my ancestors. Then something extraordinary happened. As long as I can remember I have heard discordant noise, racket in my ears, even when it should have been quiet. The noise stopped after I prayed, and it has not returned.
In all likelihood you are like me. You have misused sound and you have ancestors who have done the same. Here is how I prayed:
Lord, I repent for ever misusing sound. I repent for myself and on behalf of my ancestors. Please forgive us. I ask that you remove any devices, objects or structures that have resulted because of the misuse of sound. Please cleanse and restore my ears as well as any part of me corrupted by the misuse of sound. Please cleanse and restore my tribal line as well. Teach me to use sound according to your will and your design. In Jesus name. Amen.
Blessings to you on this very first day of 2018!

|And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7|
|I have been paying attention to my thoughts lately. I haven’t been censoring them, just listening. And I realized that I think a lot about other people. And what I think isn’t always very pretty. If someone has hurt me, my thoughts tend toward the angry and resentful. If a friend is acting oddly – distant – and won’t talk about it, my thoughts circle around possible whys and possible solutions until I would be thrilled to exchange my confusion for a Let It Go earworm. Anything to STOP thinking about a problem that I can’t solve.
With it being the Christmas season, many of us are around relatives who may not exactly be spiritually minded. Some of them go WAAAY beyond simple carnality and right into scary. (I’m speaking from personal experience). This may be producing a less than peaceful thought life for you. So here is a solution that is working beautifully for me. It’s my Christmas present to you!
But first! Many folks have instructed me to just pray for the people who upset me. Great. Only I don’t WANT to pray for those people. I don’t LIKE them. Also, officially praying for the people I’m thinking about doesn’t work for me. I just think about them more.
So, I needed a workaround and here is what the Lord suggested:
When you find yourself trapped in unhealthy thoughts, ask Me to turn those thoughts into prayers.
Like this: Confused, angry, hurt thought drifts though my mind. I respond: “Lord, turn that thought into a prayer.”
So now, when I discover myself mucking around in my head, I simply pray this: “Every thought, Lord, turn into a prayer.”
Hugs from me to you and Merry Christmas!
the earth was filled with violence. Genesis 6:11
We live in a time when violence is closer to home than ever. Just recently, while walking in our neighborhood, Sam was threatened by a teenage boy. A few weeks before that happened, we drove up on a fight in front of a grocery store. While helping his customer unload luggage, a taxi driver was assaulted from behind by a stranger who pounded him with his fists before fleeing.
As our society erupts into acts of sudden violence, those of us committed to living a quiet life at peace with others are, understandably, fearful. We can sense a tangible spirit of menace lurking in the atmosphere. It is because of this that I wrote the article Combat Angels, in the hopes that the information will better equip God’s people to live without fear in such an environment. This article provides scriptural support for Combat Angels. If you haven’t read Combat Angels, send me an email and I will forward a copy to you.
By now I am sure that you are well aware of how our enemy casts doubt on any spiritual reality that threatens him. He would keep us ignorant. Learning to command our angels (which releases them to perform the will of God on our behalf) is a powerful weapon against the kingdom of darkness. Thus, our enemy fears it very much and will counter by attacking us with The Fear That We Are Doing Something Wrong.
To counter that attack, let’s look in scripture for bible precedent that supports commanding angels. Let’s look for practical examples and then for the principle underlying our active engagement with spiritual realities.
The Lord has established His throne in the heavens,
The psalmist is David who is speaking in the imperative voice. That is, he is commanding with authority that another carry out his will. It’s the same thing parents do when they tell the children to do their homework, when an officer commands a soldier, when a boss instructs employees or when a police officer orders you to hand over your driver’s license. Because David instructed the angels (and the hosts AND all the works of God) to bless the Lord, so we, too, should instruct the holy beings to carry out our will as it lines up with the will of God.
We do not have a record of Lord Jesus commanding his angels, but we do have a record of him saying that it was permissible for him to do so. (Keep in mind that Jesus journeyed through the earth as a man). When Jesus faced Pilate, he revealed that the angels given to him were his to command. Our Lord said this: “Do you think that I cannot appeal to My Father, and He will at once put at My disposal more than twelve legions of angels?” Matthew 26:53.
Note the words “put at MY disposal.” They would be his to actively command. Consider the Lord’s words in John 14:12: “he who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also; and greater works than these he will do.” In order to do the works done by Jesus, we must engage with the supernatural. There is no way around it.
Most of us take a very passive approach to our angels, hoping that they are protecting us. I think this is the wrong approach. Let’s see if we can find (and explain) the principle guiding us to actively participate in these kinds of spiritual realities.
In Numbers 13 and 14 you find the story of the Israelites who refused to go into the promised land because they were afraid. God wanted to bless them, but that blessing required their active participation. Because they were small in their own eyes, they remained in the wilderness for 40 years until every man 20 years and older had died. Only Caleb and Joshua would live to see the land, because they had urged the people to go forward.
Now there is a time to wait on the Lord. But that is not the passivity that arises out of fear. We wait when we are seeking to synchronize with him.
1 Samuel 17 records another event where active participation was required for deliverance. Facing a deadly enemy, the armies of Israel froze in fear, allowing that monster to mock God’s people for 40 days. It was David who confronted Goliath. Notice that the Lord did not intervene on behalf of his people until one person actively responded to the challenge. As long as everyone fled at the sight and sound of Goliath, there was no deliverance.
Jesus shows us how God blesses our active participation in Matthew 25:14-28, the parable of the talents. The person who hid his master’s money was ruled by fear and received no reward. Those that actively engaged with their master’s money in order to produce the will of their master and to increase his kingdom, pleased him and were rewarded.
At my very first prophetic conference, I was overtaken with intercession in the ladies’ restroom. (Of course it was in the bathroom because we all know that is the Room of Revelation – ROR for short). A kind, experienced intercessor took me to the prayer room and stayed with me for hours as, flat on my back, I groaned, wept and laughed (all the while wondering if I was losing my mind. See Romans 8:26). During that rather overwhelming introduction to intercession, I experienced vision after vision of angels, both large and small, in chains and behind bars. As I prayed I flung open the doors and removed the chains from these spiritual beings who then flew through the earth bringing forth God’s kingdom and will. My point: They were bound until I released them. Because I had no idea how to apply the visions, I put them aside until this present day, many years later. I believe the time has come to release our angels.
Let us release them together. We need their help and they want to help us. They only do what the Lord allows, so we are NOT risking anything by commanding them. But commanding them IS required. Remember! Servants and soldiers do NOT take initiative. They take orders.
Are they (angels) not all ministering spirits, sent out to render service for the sake of those who will inherit salvation? Hebrews 1:14
So how did Sam handle the confrontation with the aggressive teenager? And how did we respond to the fist fight in the grocery store parking lot? First, Sam. He was shocked, of course, and didn’t know what to do, but once home, he confronted the evil spirit by firmly informing it that it had overstepped a boundary. He declared that he was a son of God, therefore off limits to devils. He commanded the creature to never step over that boundary again. Then, he sent his angels to punish the evil spirit that had motivated that boy’s actions.
We both were shocked when we drove up on the fist fight. I immediately ordered the devils involved to stop. Then I commanded my angels to punish the devils if they did not obey me. (All this was shouted in a squeaky, panicky voice. It was a while before my heart rate slowed down!) It took just a minute and the fight was over, the man fleeing.
I would love to hear your angel stories, especially the results of you commanding them.

the earth was filled with violence. Genesis 6:11
In the light of the recent shootings I am going forward with this message because it provides a powerful tool to combat the forces of darkness.
You and I are created in God’s image. The Hebrew word used in Genesis that describes us as His image is a very unique word. Only in the telling of our creation is this particular word – translated as image – used. This suggests that we are more than a reflection or statue or vague shadow of God. We are His image in the sense that He used His own design in the making of humanity. This sets us apart from God’s other creations: the animals and angelic beings and whatever else He has created.
Now, granted, we are mostly a hot mess because of the fall. Nevertheless, we remain set apart because our design is patterned upon God’s own. Now why am I starting an article about angels here? I am hoping to head off any inordinate fear of pride you may have and, also, to address the problem of extreme timidity. Most of us have been taught to fear becoming proud or of stepping out of line lest we incur God’s displeasure. This often leads us to live small, fearful lives instead of embracing the joy and challenges of risking and failing; learning and growing that the Lord counsels us about in Matthew 25. In the parable of the talents, God reveals that He rewards risk-taking but frowns upon extreme timidity. Now, I have learned the hard way to only follow the Spirit of the Lord in my risk-taking. So, let wisdom guide you. Still, do not shrink from taking risks or experimenting because of fear.
On to the subject at hand: Angels. I had a dream. What prophetic folks would call a night vision. In my dream, I was lying in the dirt, face down. Four men were kneeling around me. One of those men turned me over, lifting up my head and shoulders. He was extraordinarily beautiful. They all were beautiful, but not in the same way that humans are beautiful. They lacked that earthiness we have, and there was nothing at all sensual about them.
I realized that I was seeing angels. As I looked into the face of the one lifting me up, I saw that he was filled with love. But the love that filled him was not personal to me or about me. He was simply a container of God’s love.
This is what he said: “Do not be afraid. We have slaughtered your enemies.” As I looked into his face, I thought, groggily, that my enemies sure didn’t act slaughtered. Then I woke up.
Was my experience weird? Not at all. Angels delivering messages from God are a common occurrence in the Bible. Daniel, Mary, Joseph, Zacharias, the shepherds keeping watch, the wise men, the women at the tomb, the people watching Jesus ascend, Cornelius, John and others all received messages from angels. They appear to have understood their messages better than I did though. I found the message delivered to me baffling.
Over the weeks, as I prayed about the message, I recalled little mini-visions I’d been having – flashes of angels standing about filing their nails; yawning and leaning against walls looking bored. I would see them from the corners of my eyes as I went about my day. Nothing real noticeable, and if I wasn’t a prayer minster who spends HOURS looking and listening in the spirit, I would have ignored those little insights into the spirit world. Then, out of the blue, a stranger called me to report that she, too, was seeing these flashes of angels, hanging about filing their nails (of all things), appearing to be bored. Adding these mini-visions to the nighttime message, I began to ask the Lord what on earth???? With a nudge from Holy Spirit, I started asking my angels to do things for me. I asked them to attack any demonic beings that were troubling my home and, especially, to break the drought that was prevailing over the region where I live.
That experiment resulted in very little shift. The drought worsened and demonic activity continued. Until one day, in the Room of Revelation (also known as the bathroom), as I was once again ASKING my angels to break the drought, I heard an insistent voice saying, “Command me!”
Very startled I obeyed and said, “I command you, angels, to break the drought.” And they did. That was last winter and we have enjoyed record rainfall ever since which has resulted in a complete recovery from a devastating drought. Coincidence? Perhaps.
Except I didn’t stop there. I might have gone a little wild commanding my angels as I tested out my new tool, but I have learned a lot. First, I learned that angels will not obey me when I command them to do something that isn’t the will of God. Good to know that I am safe from my own stupidity.
Also, I have learned that angels are soldiers and servants. Soldiers and servants do not take initiative. They take orders. This means that as much as they might want to help, unless they are ordered to help, they don’t. Therefore, asking doesn’t work with angels. They must be told.
I am well aware that the idea of bossing around angels makes some people nervous while others will have the pleasure of being offended by the very idea. Nonetheless, scripture declares that angels are servants sent by God to serve us. Because they are servants they follow orders. No orders? Then they stand around filing their nails. My angels are much happier slaughtering my enemies.
Are they (angels) not all ministering spirits, sent out to render service for the sake of those who will inherit salvation? Hebrews 1:14
When Jesus stood before Pilate, He said this: “Do you think that I cannot appeal to My Father, and He will at once put at My disposal more than twelve legions of angels?” Matthew 26:53
Put at my disposal, the Lord said. In other words, angels would be given to Jesus to put to work as He pleased. It is the same for us. We, of course, are not wise in all things, so a nice safety net is in place to ensure that the angels only fulfill the tasks and follow the orders we give them as they align with God’s will. Yes. I learned that by experimenting.
Let me encourage you to be daring in your faith. Don’t let this world beat you down and keep you afraid. The Lord is your cheerleader. He rejoices over you. Listen to who He says you are. This is from Psalm 8:4-6.
What is man that You take thought of him,
And the son of man that You care for him?
Yet You have made him a little lower than God (Elohiym),
And You crown him with glory and majesty!
You make him to rule over the works of Your hands;
You have put all things under his feet
So, put your boss hat on and put your angels to work. They will appreciate it. An angel can only file his nails for so long. First of all, command them to aggressively attack the evil spirits that compel men to gun down the helpless. Tell them that you forbid such things to operate within your realm of influence. Forbid any intrusive spirits to operate anywhere that you go. Give your angels orders to protect you and yours; to attack those intrusive spirits that would harm you.
Let me know what you learn as you try out your new combat weapon. I have lots more to write on this subject so stay tuned. And please pray for me that I will find the time and quiet I need to continue to write.
Hugs from me to you. Susan
