Erica's Messenger of Satan, Demon on Assignment
When you have had a Paul Damascus road
“Called Out” sent one experience with God.
As I personally had!
And I know this from my own personal experience and that of having
Cast Out Thousands of Demons from others as well.
You will have a “Called Out “sent one messenger from Satan to buffet you.
As I had!
(A Demon assigned by Satan to beat you down) assigned to try to steal
(counterfeit the anointing) kill you (afflict your body with sickness,
disease and mental torment). Destroy you (Keep you bound in
poverty and lack, misery and unhappiness) all in Satan’s attempt to
ignorantly suppress or put down, by means of both spiritual and natural
force the Kingdom of God on earth as it is in heaven.
1Paul, a servant of Jesus Christ, called to be an apostle, separated unto
the gospel of God
Paul, an apostle, (not of men, neither by man, but by Jesus Christ, and
God the Father, who raised him from the dead ;)
Paul, an apostle of Jesus Christ by the will of God, to the saints which are at
Ephesus, and to the faithful in Christ Jesus
Paul, a servant of God, and an apostle of Jesus Christ, according to the
faith of God's elect, and the acknowledging of the truth which is after godliness
16. But rise, and stand upon thy feet: for I have appeared unto thee for this purpose, to make thee a minister and a witness both of these things which thou hast seen, and of those things in the which I will appear unto thee;
17.Delivering thee from the people, and from the Gentiles, unto whom now I send thee,
18.To open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light, and from the power of Satan unto God, that they may receive forgiveness of sins, and inheritance among them which are sanctified by faith that is in me.
God did special Miracles by the Hands of Paul, then it is the truth to know that Paul had a Special Anointing for special miracles and that was part of his purpose, the thing that Paul was sent to accomplish for God.
God made Paul a minister and a witness to accomplish his plan here on earth.
Has God made you a minister and a witness to accomplish “His” plan here on this earth?
And God wrought special miracles by the hands of Paul:
1 Thessalonians 2:18
Wherefore we would have come unto you, even I Paul, once and again; but Satan hindered us
2 Corinthians 11
1Would to God ye could bear with me a little in my folly: and indeed bear with me. .. But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.
4For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him… And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
15Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works. ..For ye suffer, if a man bring you into bondage, if a man devour you, if a man take of you, if a man exalt himself, if a man smite you on the face.
… Are they the seed of Abraham? So am I.
23. Are they ministers of Christ? (I speak as a fool) I am more; in labours more abundant, in stripes above measure, in prisons more frequent, in deaths oft.
24. Of the Jews five times received I forty stripes save one.
25. Thrice was I beaten with rods, once was I stoned, thrice I suffered shipwreck, a night and a day I have been in the deep;
26. In journeyings often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils by mine own countrymen, in perils by the heathen, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren;
27. In weariness and painfulness, in watchings often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness.
28. Beside those things that are without, that which cometh upon me daily, the care of all the churches.
29. Who is weak, and I am not weak? Who is offended, and I burn not?
30. If I must needs glory, I will glory of the things which concern mine infirmities.
31. The God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which is blessed for evermore, knoweth that I lie not.
32. In Damascus the governor under Aretas the king kept the city of the damascenes with a garrison, desirous to apprehend me:
33. And through a window in a basket was I let down by the wall, and escaped his hands.
Acts 16:16-18 (King James Version)
16And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying:
17The same followed Paul and us, and cried, saying, these men are the servants of the most high God, which shew unto us the way of salvation.
18.And this did she many days. But Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out the same hour.
2 Corinthians 12:7
And lest I should be exalted above measure through the abundance of the revelations, there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure.
Are you the seed of Abraham?
Have you been called, chosen, sent with
A special anointing from God?
If your answer is yes to the above,
Then you have the messenger of Satan
Sent to buffet you!
How do I know God Manifested a
A picture of mine.
On a video that I have posted on youtube
It shocked me!
Threw me for a loop for a minute!
That’s what It’s purpose was.
Attempting to cause fear and stop me from ministering, but It didn’t I went to God in prayer and waited for “Him” to explained to me what was going on.
I stopped everything!
You see I don’t minister knowingly, under attack from the enemy.
The Holy Spirit began to give me Messages on the Devourer and the Predator Spirits or Demons and then
God allowed a picture of that demon to be manifested on my website , God gave me a Sign, I had gone there looking for something else.
When I saw that demonic face that appeared in what was only supposed to be a garbage bag (smile, ironic that God had it manifest on a garbage bag, shows you what God thinks of demons) I called a few people close to me and told them to look and to Pray as I prayed and Glory to God, In the name of Jesus,
“The Holy Ghost”
The same power that raised Jesus from the dead, Broke the power of the Messenger of Satan off of me, and on Voting day Nov 4th, 2008 God, sent an Angel to walk up to me and Cast it off my flesh and then the “Holy Spirit” Delivered my Soul.
You see it wasn’t in my spirit it was on
My body hanging on and operating ,
Within my Soul at will.
2 Timothy 2:26
And that they may recover themselves out of
the snare of the devil,
who are taken captive by him at his will.
It was tormenting my Soul
Externally through people, circumstances,
situations and temptations through not having enough
finances to do what I wanted to do, not having enough money frustrated me to know end believing that I knew how to handle it.
After all before I got saved I did handle it. Now, I have to wait on God.
That was hard for me, a self starter!
To all of my friends who will say,
I knew she had a demon,
My question to you is
Why didn’t you have enough Power to cast it out,
In Jesus Name!
Why didn’t you even “try to help me, by Casting it out?”
With all of your “knowledge.”
Were you to selfish or is it that God
Hadn’t revealed the Messenger of Satan
To you yet either?
The Bible says that all have sinned and come short of the Glory of God! All Sin brings demons in and All Sin hides demons. Confessed sin and repentance pushes demons out. But it is only the Power of God, backed by the Word of God that can dispel a Demon.
By that I mean Can Cast a Demon out!
The Power of God, In Jesus Name
Casts them Out!
Could it be that your Messenger of Satan
Was there looking at the
The Demon Satan had sent me that God had
allowed and was buffeting me,
all in its attempt to beat me down, throw in the towel
and give up like a non-conquering hero.
Could it be that your Messenger of Satan
Wouldn’t let you deal with mine, because then it would be exposed that it was operating in you and maybe you have a little problem with pride?
Just a thought?
Or maybe it wasn’t God’s timing yet for me to be Set-free from the
messenger of Satan.
Well when I get to heaven I will ask Jesus for sure!
Now you know what happened to me the last weeks of October and the First few weeks of November?
November 10th, 2008
I was freed from the Messenger of Satan,
God supernaturally Delivered me again the first Time was 25 years ago, and it is wonderful then,
I under went a full scale Exorcism from a Legion of Demons.
Matthew 12:43-44 (King James Version)
43When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and findeth none. 44Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he findeth it empty, swept, and garnished.
The Apostle Paul said; but Satan hindered us
The Apostle Paul said, the messenger of Satan to buffet me, lest I should be exalted above measure.
And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.
He shall deliver thee in six troubles: yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee.
2 Timothy 4:18
And the Lord shall deliver me from every evil work, and will preserve me unto his heavenly kingdom: to whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen
2 Corinthians 1:10
Who delivered us from so great a death, and doth deliver: in whom we trust that he will yet deliver us;
Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father
1 Corinthians 10:13
There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.
He shall call upon me, and I will answer him: I will be with him in trouble; I will deliver him,
and honour him
I Believed the Word of God and Jesus, by
The Power of The Holy Ghost
The Messenger of Satan has been Exposed, Uncovered, Pulled up and out.
Maybe for only a season I don’t know, but I know one thing I have to get on with my Fathers business, moving as fast as I can to get as many People Saved, Healed, Delivered made free as I can from The Messengers of Satan and all of “his demons.”
“I have Fresh Oil, a re-filling of the Holy Ghost Power and Victory Over the Messengers of Satan and Demonic Freedom is assured, by the Power of God.
Let me ask you a couple of questions:
Are you the seed of Abraham?
Have you been called, chosen, sent with
A special anointing from God?
Then guess what
If your answer is yes,
You most probably have a messenger of Satan on assignment sent to
Buffet you to!
For those of you”Called, Chosen and Sent”
“Like Paul, myself and many others of you”
Fighting in this spiritual warfare,
I can help you expose this demonic spirit,How you say?
From personal experience, I understand that I can't help everyone
But I Can Help You, In Jesus Name
Bible Care The Deliverance Way
As we defeat the enemy,
By Destroying his works
In Jesus Name!

Demons Deliverance Information for beginners SOURCES OF SUPERNATURAL POWER
There are only two sources of supernatural power in the universe. The first source is made up of God, Jesus Christ, the Holy Spirit, and the holy angels; they represent the forces for good. The second source of supernatural power consists of Satan and his demons. They represent the forces for evil.
The term "supernatural" means something above the laws of nature. If something is truly supernatural and cannot be attributed to God and the power under His control, it must be attributed to Satan and the power under his control. There is no neutral supernatural power. There is no white magic and there are no friendly ghosts.
If a happening or phenomenon is supernatural and cannot be explained by the laws of nature, the source of power is on a short list. It is either of God or of Satan.
A. Holy Power
In order to understand Satan and his demons, it is necessary to accept the existence of God and His holy power as documented in the Holy Bible. The essence of holy power is the three-part God, known as the Trinity.
B. God, the Father
The first Person of the Trinity is God, the Father. He is the chief executive officer of the entire universe. All power, holy and evil, originates with Him. Satan's evil power is temporary and was granted by God in order to give humans a real choice between good and evil.
In the beginning, humans were created by God for the purpose of fellowship and worship. In order for this fellowship and worship to be meaningful for God, it had to be voluntary.
C. God, the Son
The second Person of the Trinity is God, the Son, Jesus Christ. He came to earth so He could die as the supreme sin sacrifice for all humans. He is the Lamb of God. Our first ancestors, Adam and Eve, fell prey to Satan's temptation and disobeyed God's command to avoid eating the forbidden fruit. In this way, they sinned. The penalty for sin was then, and always has been, death. But God had mercy and didn't wipe out the human race immediately because of our sin. Instead, He developed a plan for us to be saved which was based on sacrifice. For hundreds of years, humans sacrificed animals on the altar of God so we wouldn't have to die for our sin. But then God sent His Son as the ultimate, once and for all sin sacrifice. Jesus died on the cross for our sins so we wouldn't have to die for those sins.
D. God, Holy Spirit
The third Person of the Trinity is God, the Holy Spirit. When Jesus died and went to Heaven, He sent back His Holy Spirit to serve humans in three ways:
(1) help us understand the Bible and what it teaches about God and Jesus Christ;
(2) help us do the will of God in our lives; and
(3) help us resist the evil power of Satan and his demons.
Holy Spirit is really the Ghost of God. The Holy Spirit of God
In fact, the King James version of the Bible calls Him just that: the Holy Ghost.
E. Holy Angels
The holy angels round out the essence of holy power on earth. The part of the angels' job description of most importance to humans is that they are our guardians. Listen to God's promise concerning angels, as recorded in Psalms 91:11-12: "For He will command His angels concerning you to guard you in all your ways; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone." A paraphrase of this scripture could be, "Guardian angels keep us from stubbing our toe along the pathway of life". Demons may be dedicated to our destruction but angels are commissioned for our benefit.
Demons in the Bible
There is no doubting that demon possession is mentioned frequently in the Gospels, the first four books of the New Testament. Skeptics may claim these accounts of demon possession were really ignorant and superstitious descriptions of such clinical problems as mental illness and epilepsy. However, one of the Gospels was written by a physician named Luke. In fact, the most complete account of the Virgin Birth is recorded by Luke in Chapters 1 and 2 of his Gospel. Not only is the Bible the inspired word of God, but Luke was a trained physician of his day. Therefore, what the Bible has to say about demons in the book of Luke is of extreme significance.
The King James Version of the Bible was translated in 1611. Although this version is very popular and is the version you'll most likely find in a hotel room, its Elizabethan English is about as easy to read as the works of Shakespeare. If you're not used to reading the Bible, or Shakespeare, you will find easier reading by trying one of the following modern language versions of Scripture:
"The Living Bible" is a paraphrase of the Bible by Dr. Kenneth N. Taylor which is published by Tyndale House, Wheaton, IL, Copyright 1971.
"The New International Version" (NIV), is published by ZondervanBible Publishers, Grand Rapids, MI, Copyright 1978. This is a scholarly modern language translation from Hebrew and Greek manuscripts and is equally suitable for first-time readers and advanced Bible students.
Either the "Living Bible" or the NIV are recommended for persons who are reading the Bible for the first time.
Before going on, we need to clearly understand our terms. I will use the terms Satan and demon exclusively when I talk about the forces of evil, with the exception of direct quotations from the Bible. In the King James Version of the Bible, the term "devil" is sometimes used to refer to Satan and at other times, "devil" refers to one or more of Satan's demons. I will always say Satan when I am talking about the chief of all evil. When I am talking about one of Satan's underlings, I will use the term demon.
The scripture references listed below outline what Luke has recorded about demons. However, the other Gospel writers (Matthew, Mark, and John) tell about demons, also.
Matthew and Mark give several parallel (synoptic) accounts of the same incidents documented by Luke.
The New International Version is quoted in the passages below so you will be able to clearly understand what Luke is saying about demon possession.
B. How to Read a Bible, The Bible is organized into books, chapters, and verses. When the location of a specific statement is given, the citation of this scripture is given as follows: Luke 2:1-20. This example refers to the story of Christ's birth, as recorded in the book of Luke, chapter 2, verses 1 through 20.
If you have difficulty locating a specific book, use the table of contents in the front of your Bible which serves the same purpose as in any other book.
Some books of the Bible have similar names and Arabic or Roman numerals are used to help make distinctions. There is a Gospel of John and three epistles (letters) written by John. The three epistles are known in the New international Version as 1 John, 2 John, and 3 John. In the King James Version, they are known as I John, II John, and III John.
C. Demons Knew Who Jesus Was
The word demon comes from the ancient root "da", meaning the knowing ones. From the beginning, the demons knew who Jesus was and they knew something about His mission here on earth.
Luke 4:33-35. "In the synagogue there was a man possessed by a demon, an evil spirit. He cried out at the top of his voice, 'Ha! What do you want with us, Jesus of Nazareth? Have you come to destroy us?
I know who you are -- the Holy One of God!'
'Be quiet!' Jesus said sternly. 'Come out of him!' Then the demon threw the man down before them all and came out without injuring him.
D. Demons or Illness?
Physical healing was an important part of the earthly ministry of Jesus. However, Luke makes a clear distinction between physical healing and providing deliverance from demon possession, as shown in these verses.
Luke 4:40-41: "When the sun was setting, the people brought to Jesus all who had various kinds of sickness, and laying his hands on each one, he healed them. Moreover, demons came out of many people, shouting, 'You are the Son of God!...'"
Luke 7:21: "At that very time Jesus cured many who had diseases, sickness and evil spirits, and gave sight to many who were blind."
E. Demons and Epilepsy
Luke records a case where a child's demon possession caused what we would call epilepsy today. In Luke 9:39, the boy's father describes his son's symptoms:
"'A spirit seizes him and he suddenly screams; it throws him into convulsions so that he foams at the mouth. It scarcely ever leaves him and is destroying him.'"
Jesus provides the solution in verse 42:
"Even while the boy was coming, the demon threw him to the ground in a convulsion. But Jesus rebuked the evil spirit, healed the boy and gave him back to his father."
F. Demons and Speech Disability
Luke also documents the case of a person who had his speech restored when he was delivered from demon possession. Luke 11:14:
"Jesus was driving out a demon that was mute. When the demon left, the man who had been dumb spoke, and the crowd was amazed."
G. Multiple Demons Possessed a Single Person
Luke records two case of persons who were possessed by multiple demons. These cases are important, also, when considering multiple personalities, reincarnation, and channeling.
Note in the first case, the number 7 in the Bible can be interpreted as numerous instead of the simple count of seven. In the second case, it's good to remember that in New Testament times, the military term legion represented 6,000 soldiers.
Luke 8:2: "...and also some women who had been cured of evil spirits and diseases: Mary (called Magdalene) from whom seven demons had come out; ..."
Luke 8:30: "Jesus asked him, 'What is your name?' 'Legion,' he replied, because many demons had gone into him."
H. Physical Disability Caused By a Demon
In Luke 13:10-13, he documents the case of a woman who had a physical disability for eighteen years because of a demon:
"...and a woman was there who had been crippled by a spirit for eighteen years. She was bent over and could not straighten up at all. When Jesus saw her he called her forward and said to her, 'Woman, you are set free from your infirmity.' Then he put his hands on her, and immediately she straightened up and praised God."
I. Luke's Writings About Demons
Demons knew who Jesus was: Luke 4:33-35; Luke 4:41.
Difference between those who were sick and those who were demon possessed: Luke 4:41-42; Luke 7:20-21.
Some had multiple demons: Luke 8:2; Luke 8:30.
Demon caused violence and epilepsy in a child: Luke 9:38-42
Demon caused speech disability: Luke 11:14
Demon caused physical disability: Luke 13:10-13
3. Satan's Limited Power
Although Satan does have some supernatural power, there is a limit to this power. The Bible tells us in 1 John 4:4 that "greater is He that is in us (the Holy Spirit) than he that is in the world (Satan)." A powerful illustration of this is found in Revelation 20:1-3 where John, the Revelator, describes what will happen at the beginning of the millennium (the thousand years of peace): "And I saw an angel coming down out of heaven, having the key to the Abyss and holding in his hand a great chain. He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil, or Satan, and bound him for a thousand years. He threw him into the Abyss, and locked and sealed it over him . . . "
This shows the relative power of God and Satan. When it comes time for Satan to be put in his place, God won't need to do it. He won't ask Jesus or the Holy Spirit to do it. He'll just deputize an angel and that's all it will take to completely neutralize Satan.
In the meantime, though, Satan and his demons have real power. Within the limits God has set, Satan and his demons can do real spiritual damage to humans who are not filled by and, therefore, protected by the power of the Holy Spirit.
Can Satan's Power Do Good Things?
Satan has absolutely no interest in doing good things. Not in the long run, that is. His primary objective is to damn your soul to Hell forever. Period! At first glance, it may seem that Satanic power is doing good when a demon-possessed psychic helps find a kidnapped child or a demon-possessed healer performs a miracle of physical healing. [How often is that child found alive and well, and does the patient eventually die of natural causes or some other illness?]
At best, Satan's long-term objective is always to bring glory to his name and cause people to become addicted to involvement with the occult. Demons and Satan have absolutely no interest in alleviating human mental or physical suffering. Any activities of demon-possessed physics or healers always have long-term evil outcomes. The persons that seem to benefit from such activity come to trust in the power of Satan instead of God, Jesus Christ, and the Holy Spirit.
