    You may have a move in your future...

    Even good Christians oppose themselves and people they love. (Mom)

    You take over your Christian walk. Can't anyone else do it for you. Just say "I appreciate your concern" and then make your exit.

    Did you do as described in John 3 ? If so, then you are born again; and the Holy Spirit came alongside to be a daily part of your life. He...is your Teacher; Comforter. If you're veering off course, He will alert you.

    Any voice that accuses you and attacks your faith in God; is Satan. You must put on your armor, Ephesians 6, pick up your "Sword" which is scripture you have hidden in your heart; and run Satan out of your life. If you need a bigger sword...keep adding Bible into your armory every day. The demonic are invisible but you can tell when they're around: they accuse, they tear at your personality and any way they can, tear you down. You have no need that anyone teach you but The Holy Spirit: which is the Spirit of Jesus Christ. He will undertake your learning if you ask Him to. Give him all the confusion and the wounded spirit and ask Him to heal you completely.

    Generally I suggest you would watch Charles Stanley videos on YouTube; but I'm going to add to that, videos by Charles Capps. He teaches on the Authority of the Believer. Both are fatherly Teachers. You'll enjoy the sermons. Greg Laurie teaches a lot of younger people. You might check out his sermons too.

    You have suffered a breach but you are healed of that NOW in the Name of Jesus! Receive it now.

    Every time you hear the Accuser; cast him out in Jesus name. Pray for the Lord to undertake your mom's comments. Forgive always! This releases God to be at work in her life. You don't have to do a thing. Give it to Him.

    Find some Christian friends to Bible Study with. It makes for a lot of joy and fun. :D

    How's your spaghetti skills? Mishael
  • Mishael on Spiritual Warfare - in Reply on 2 Peter 2:20
    Go on YouTube and watch some videos on spiritual warfare, that's all you have to type in. Listen to some by Derek Prince. He's very calm but he can sure make the demons run!

    Sounds like you have more than one person ought to have. Read Ephesians chapter 6. Principalities and Powers are invisible but they manifest in mean ways. That's how you know they are around. You need to get more Bible into you to win against these things that afflict the children.

    Schizophrenia is a demonic spirit. It may be working in sync with a familiar spirit (infiltrates and follows families). Learn from Derek how to run these demons off. It's the Holy Name of Jesus they must bow to.

    You have to learn this. Jesus cast out demons every day of his ministry. Read the Gospels and see how Jesus did it.

    Write me back later and tell me how it goes.
  • Andrea McCallum - in Reply on 2 Peter 2:20
    Thank you Mishael for your advice .

    I used to listen to Derek Prince a few years ago , very calm personality

    with power in his words.

    You have confirmed what i have always thinks about schizophrenia " there's indeed a demon behind it "

    I therefore make my believe known to the healthcare here in Paris they think I myself may needs help.

    I do read the Bible a lot , it so strange i realised that I'm forgetting all that i read , most times as soon as i start praying

    I started yawning and tattering can't find my words .

    Something seems very wrong to me.

    I am now listening to Derek.

    Have a Blessed night.
  • Mishael - in Reply on 2 Peter 2:20
    Listen to some Charles Capps too: Authority of the believer. We have to know we have authority over demons.

    Every time they start to manifest; if you're not alone get in the parked car and start binding by using their names. Speak out your authority. Mention the holy blood of Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

    There's a demon that masquerades using Jesus's name. I'll try to find that list of demon names in the Bible.

    I don't know if many doctors would have knowledge of this. You can make calls and try to find a deliverance minister affiliated through a church.
