Is it possible to manipulate a person, people, animals, events… etc?
Is it possible to change, derail or delay destined purpose of a person, persons and even a whole people?
Does the devil exist? Does he have an army, weapons and strategies of warfare?
All of the above questions are wrapped in and found in one answer….. YES!
If ordinary mortals like SCIENTISTS can manipulate genes of man, plants and animals, how much more FALLEN ANGELS; So long as we are aware that the devil exists and is not sitting idle with folded arms, watching US all laughing, jumping and leaping joyously on that road of gold to heaven but rather he is prowling around like a hungry (and angry) lion looking for whom to devour, - 1 Peter 5:8
Job 1:7 The LORD said to Satan, "Where have you come from?" Satan answered the LORD, "From roaming through the earth and going back and
forth in it."
The Bible specifically makes it clear that there is Wickedness in high places, spiritual battle that is not of the flesh and the resultant aggressive defensive attack of people like John the Baptist
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.
2 Corinthians 11:14 And no wonder, for Satan himself masquerades as an angel of light.
And from the days of John the Baptist until now the kingdom of heaven suffereth violence, and the violent take it by force.
We are also made to understand in the following Bible passages that snares exist (set by someone, persons or spirits); terror by night, arrows that are fired and pestilence is also unleashed on ignorant creation of God,
He shall deliver you from THE SNARE OF THE FOWLER
And from THE PERILOUS PESTILENCE.
4 He shall cover you with His feathers,
And under His wings you shall take refuge;
His truth shall be your shield and buckler.
5 You shall not be afraid of THE TERROR BY NIGHT,
Nor of THE ARROR THAT FLIES BY DAY,
6 Nor of the PESTILENCE THAT WALKS IN THE DARKNESS,
Nor of THE DESTRUCTION THAT LAYS WASTE AT NOONDAY.
Mark 4:19 but the worries of this life, the deceitfulness of wealth and the desires for other things come in and choke the word, making it unfruitful.
Acts 26:18 to open their eyes and turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan to God, so that they may receive forgiveness of sins and a place among those who are sanctified by faith in me.
Colossians 1:13 For he has rescued us from THE DOMINION of darkness and brought us into the kingdom of the Son he loves,
THE MINISTRY OF DELIVERANCE
Why is this ministry, in the church so underrated and in many cases even avoided when obviously the human race is groaning in suffering under gross depression, suppression and oppression?
Why does God not automatically do something and just fight the battles for us without us having to ask? ……remember ADAM’s excuse when he was asked by God why he disobeyed and ate from the tree of THE KNOWLEDGE OF GOOD AND EVIL….. Remember?
Quoting Adam, “…. The woman that YOU gave to be with me, she gave me of the tree, and I did eat” – Genesis 3:12
Now the after effect is Matthew 7:7…. ASK and it shall be given you; SEEK, and ye shall find; KNOCK, and it shall be opened unto you…… what we used to have freely, we now have to make an effort to receive!
Even the church is not exempted; there is a high level of confusion in many churches today and in the lives of the ‘child of God’.
Why? Many have lost focus of WHOSE they are and WHO they are!
The true word, in preaching style of many ministers is, ‘marginalized’ and material prosperity has been institutionalized (DO NOT BUILD TREATURES WHERE MOTH AND RUST CAN EAT AWAY BUT …….)
An influx and high infiltration of agents who are on various missions (clearly not of God) are in the church and sad to say have occupied VERY sensitive positions and are promoting at supersonic speed the crusade of confusion and sleep induced stagnancy…….. Revelations 2:8 And unto the angel of the church in Smyrna write; These things saith the first and the last, which was dead, and is alive;
9 I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.
 Unto the angel of the church of Ephesus write; These things saith he that holdeth the seven stars in his right hand, who walketh in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks;
 I know thy works, and thy labour, and thy patience, and how thou canst not bear them which are evil: and thou hast tried them which say they are apostles, and are not, and hast found them liars:
 And hast borne, and hast patience, and for my name's sake hast laboured, and hast not fainted.
The greatest and most successful tactic and strategy of our number one enemy today is the impartation of ignorance in high intellectualism because of modernization and ‘civilization’.
Many are in bondage to fear of many things including fear itself!
Many are operating under heavy yolks of oppression contrary to the fact that WITHOUT GOD WE CAN DO NOTHING!
Deliverance brings relief and total liberty from every form of satanic oppression, depression, manipulation, sickness, spiritual ignorance, dominance of destructive habits, inner turmoil, ‘natural catastrophes’, haphazard finances, marital woes, career crisis and even death
18The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the brokenhearted, to preach DELIVERANCE TO THE CAPTIVES, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised,
19To preach the acceptable year of the Lord.
Many are seeking solutions in the wrong places as they are aware that, THERE IS A PROBLEM but often do not know what to do as their foundation was built on falsity and vain values.
The prince of this world has used many founding fathers and ancestors to institutionalize a history of lies, wickedness and confusion……
But God says, “ 2 Chronicles 7:14- If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.”
WHOSE are you and WHO are you? Child of the most High who has been made in the image and contains the character of God, that is who you are. In holiness and righteousness can you begin to assert the authority that is in you and has been from the time before you were formed in the womb!
9 Because you have made the LORD, who is my refuge,
Even the Most High, your dwelling place,
10 No evil shall befall you,
Nor shall any plague come near your dwelling;
11 For He shall give His angels charge over you,
To keep you in all your ways.
12 In their hands they shall bear you up,
Lest you dash your foot against a stone.
13 You shall tread upon the lion and the cobra,
The young lion and the serpent you shall trample underfoot.
GOD’S DELIVEARANCE…. Psalm 80:3 -Restore us, O God; make your face shine upon us, that we may be saved.
When the LORD turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream.
He will yet fill your mouth with laughter and your lips with shouts of joy.
14 “Because he has set his love upon Me, therefore I will deliver him;
I will set him on high, because he has known My name.
15 He shall call upon Me, and I will answer him;
I will be with him in trouble;
I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life I will satisfy him,
And show him My salvation.”
17But upon mount Zion shall be deliverance, and there shall be holiness; and the house of Jacob shall possess their possessions.

Dear Phoebe I am blessed knowing that you have been blessed by the message in this article. My prayer is that the Lord Himself shall continue to strengthen you from within to CARRY YOUR PERSONAL CROSS.
Fear not and do not be weary, we are in this world but not of this world,even Our Lord and saviour Jesus Christ was persecuted like a 'common criminal' but VICTORY IS ASSURED US ALWAYS BECAUSE OF WHAT HAPPENED AT CALVARY.
Thank you Jide. Today, I am in a battle with fiery darts being fired at me; some spiritual warfare, supposedly from the same side. I have found comfort in your article. It has contributed to my faith in God, my belief and what is right; to stand up for my rights and that of the truth of God. Thank you.
