Before the Lord returns, the devil and his angels will be cast down to the earth knowing he has only a little time left (Revelation 12:7-12). Then the world will enter into a time of trouble unlike anything that has ever happened before (Daniel 12:1).
The good news is the devil doesn’t have the final say. He has plans for evil, but the Lord has plans for good. Great darkness and spiritual blindness is coming upon those who don’t know the Lord, but great light and spiritual revelation is coming upon God’s people. The dark is getting darker, but the light is getting lighter. The contrast will become so visible that kings will take note of it and search out the people of God to inquire of their wisdom and understanding (Isaiah 60:1-3).
On March 22 2015, I had a dream in which I saw manifestations of spiritual warfare unlike anything I have ever seen before, but at the same time I saw great discernment and spiritual authority come upon me unlike anything I have ever seen before. This dream had three different scenes.
I was driving a large RV and somehow I got off the road. I was on the side of a cliff. I started backing up to get back on the road. At that point. . . my view shifted so I was viewing it from a distance. I saw my van start to fall off the cliff, but it was supernaturally placed back on the road.
I was in a room and saw someone entering the room. It appeared to be a man and a boy. I instantly saw them manifest into what I knew was a demon. There were other people there also, but they could not see this manifestation.
The man was a human skeleton type of being. I don’t remember what the little boy was, but it was a dark entity. I stared at them. They had to look away and said, “Don’t look at us!”
I continued to stare at them anyway and said with authority, “GET OUT!”
I didn’t even have to say “in the name of Jesus.” The authority of Jesus was already on me and in me, so they had to obey.
This had never happened to me in any dream before, because I have always used the name of Jesus. I must ponder this one, but what immediately comes to my mind is the Scriptural Verse: Galatians 2:20 – ” I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.”
I was aware that the gift of discernment had increased within me. Demons were disguising themselves as humans, so with our physical eyes they looked just like us. However, I was able to discern and know they were demons. Since they were demons, we still had authority over them, as was given to us by Jesus as his followers and disciples.
NOTE: and no, I’m not saying we are “the disciples” we read about in the Bible. . . it is to show we are disciples if we truly believe that we are following Jesus. Also, Jesus even told his followers then: Matthew 28:18-20 – “And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, ‘All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.’ ”
SO, aren’t we then disciples, if we truly follow and serve Jesus?
Scene One shows amazing supernatural protection for God’s people. My van should have gone over the cliff, but the Lord rescued me.
Scene Two reveals demons are already manifesting and walking around amongst us, even more now than before CERN set off the supercollider at MAX. However, we must have discernment from the Holy Spirit to “see”. Also, IF and WHEN people start feeling uncomfortable around us, or can’t look us in the eyes, we can ask the Holy Spirit what’s going on. They could be demons manifesting as humans, or they could be people who need deliverance and the demons within them are uncomfortable with the greater light shining from us.
So be prepared and don’t get offended when it happens… just take it to the Lord in prayer. We can even step away for a moment, saying we need to use the restroom or some other excuse, if needed. WE ARE IN SPIRITUAL WARFARE THAT HAS RAMPED UP!!
Can demonic spirits really manifest in human bodies? According to the Bible, the angels of the Lord are able to appear on earth in human bodies. We are warned to always show hospitality to strangers, because we sometimes entertain angels without knowing it (Hebrews 13:2). They can look so much like us we can’t even tell the difference.
Scene Three shows God’s people will be equipped with increased discernment and increased authority. We will be well prepared for the battles ahead!
Here are some Scripture verses to keep in mind:
John 1:1-5 –
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things came into being through Him, and apart from Him nothing came into being that has come into being. In Him was life, and the life was the Light of men. The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.”
John 14:12-15 –
“Truly, truly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do, he will do also; and greater works than these he will do; because I go to the Father. Whatever you ask in My name, that will I do, so that the Father may be glorified in the Son. If you ask Me anything in My name, I will do it. If you love Me, you will keep My commandments.”
Ephesians 6:10-17 –
“Finally, be strong in the Lord and in the strength of His might. Put on the full armor of God, so that you will be able to stand firm against the schemes of the devil. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the powers, against the world forces of this darkness, against the spiritual forces of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore, take up the full armor of God, so that you will be able to resist in the evil day, and having done everything, to stand firm. Stand firm therefore, having girded your loins with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the preparation of the gospel of peace; in addition to all, taking up the shield of faith with which you will be able to extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God.”
Galatians 2:20 –
” I have been crucified with Christ; and it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself up for me.”
Matthew 28:18-20 –
“And Jesus came up and spoke to them, saying, “All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth. ‘Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.’ “
