Note: The following testimonies, videos, and photos are for the Glory of God and His Goodness. It is wonderful to partner with the Heavenly Father, Jesus, and Holy Spirit to help people move from dark to light, bondage to freedom, and struggle to destiny.Dawn and I received a request to pray for a young lady named “Amber.” She is in her late twenties. Amber was going through major issues in her life. She was very tormented, had no peace, and was on the verge of a mental crisis. As we started to pray, the Lord revealed spiritual roots underlying Amber’s misery.
Dawn and I started by declaring Scriptures. In the spirit realm, I saw a demonic entity in the form of a vampire come forth and confront me. We asked the girl what her connection was to vampires. She said, “Several years ago, I used to be a vampire.” She relayed how she became involved with a group who lived a “vampire lifestyle.” They would drink each other’s blood, perform rituals, and defile themselves through orgy parties.
As Dawn and I prayed, the vampire spirit began to manifest. We cast it out in the name of Jesus and by the power of the Holy Spirit. We also led Amber through prayers of repentance. We were able to “close the door” to her demonic attacks, so her relationship with the Lord could begin to flourish. However, she still needs to live out her freedom and not open the doors again to the enemy.
The spirit world is very real, and the devil will do anything to destroy people. The Bible says in 1 Peter 5:8, “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.” Do not let the enemy have a foothold in your life, but rather live your life fully surrendered to God.
By Dawn R. PietschI want to talk about, “Overcoming Rejection”. The origin or rejection was from the beginning of time here on earth. After the fall, all kinds of things came into play. (See Genesis 3:1-22.) Rejection was one of the first things to appear. Adam and Eve rejected God's words about the "rules" in the garden. Because of that, rejection entered in.
Rejection is like a tree, it grows deep roots and seeds. The rejection in your life can be generational, and even begin at conception. Were you wanted? This opens up a whole gamut of decisions a person can make, that affects the rest of their life. Finding out the source of your rejection is important, because it helps eliminate those areas in your life that have been affected. For example, were you adopted, illegitimate, unwanted? These can leave deep wounds in a person's life. Were you abused, physically, emotionally, or sexually? These issues can affect you, including your relationships. Are you prone to addictions, obsessions, and idolatry? These are all the fruit of rejection.
Wherever you're at, and whatever you have done, Jesus will never leave you nor forsake you (Deuteronomy 31:6). Jesus has overcome rejection. He was the most rejected person in the history of our world, and still is. How can we even fathom that? The One who gave us so much, and has done so much for us, even died for us. He has overcome sin and death, and was victorious at the Cross! (See 1 Corinthians 15:55-57.)
The Cross is where you start. Release, forgive, and repent of all rejection that you’ve ever experienced! You will feel the release, the chains fall off, the roots come out, the demons flee, and the prison doors open. By forgiving and repenting of rejection, you will come out from under rejection's bondage. It’s time to get out of those prisons, and release those rejections to the Cross! “It is finished!” was the last words that Jesus spoke on the Cross, receive the freedom that He purchased for you at Calvary! (See John 19:30.) It is time!
