THE MYSTERIES OF PRAYER REVEALED (1)
I want to share with you from a testimony of someone who was saved, someone who had been serving the devil. And when that man gave his testimony, it so challenged me, I did not want to believe it. I had to go ten days before the Lord in fasting, asking Him, “Lord, is this true?” And it was at that time the Lord began to teach me what happens in the spiritual realm when we pray.
This man was born after his parents dedicated themselves to lucifer. When he was still in the womb, they made so many rituals dedicating him to serve lucifer. When he was four years old, he began to exercise his spiritual power. And his parents began fearing him. When he was six years, his father surrendered him to the witches to go and be trained. And by ten years, he was doing great things in the kingdom of the devil. He was feared by the normal witches.
He was still a young boy, but he was so terrible in the things he did. He grew up to be a young man in his twenties with so much bloodshed on his hands. Killed at will. He had the ability to go out of his body through transcendental meditation. And he could levitate. Sometimes his body would lift off the ground and stay in the air. And sometimes he could go into a trance, and come out of his body; his body would remain behind, and he would go out into the world, this is called astro-travelling. And this guy was used by satan to destroy so many churches, to break down so many churches and to destroy so many pastors.
One night, I (John Mulinde) went to a dinner. The sole reason I went is that someone told me about this young man, and I was so curious to see him, and see if his story was true. So I sat at that dinner and in the evening, this man was given the chance to give his testimony. He talked about so many things. Sometimes he cried because of the things he did. As he finished, he made an appeal.
There were many pastors in that room. And he said, “I appeal to you, pastors. Please teach the people how to pray.” The people who don’t pray, can be taken in anything, in anything by the devil, and there are ways that the enemy exploits their lives and their prayers. The enemy knows even how to exploit their prayers of those people who don’t know how to pray. “Teach the people how to use the spiritual armor that God provides.”
Then he shared how he lead expositions into the air. He would go with other satanic agents and lots of demon spirits into the air. It was like a shift, you’ve got to go and work your shift. So regularly he had a time he had to go and wage war in the heavenlies. And he said that in the heavenlies, in the spiritual realm, if the land is covered under the blanket of darkness, that blanket is so thick, it is like a rock. And it covers the whole area. And these spirits are able to go on top of this as well as below this blanket. And from that level, they influence the events on earth.
When the evil spirits and human satanic agents leave their shifts, they go down on earth at the points of covenant, even waters or on the land at the points of covenant for refreshing of their spirit. And how do they refresh their spirit? By the sacrifices that people give at these altars. They could be sacrifices in open witchcraft, sacrifices in bloodshed of all types including abortion, including warfare and human sacrifices and animal sacrifices. They could be sacrifices of sexual immorality where people go into sexual perversions and all kinds of promiscuity. And that act services the strength of these powers. And many are the different types of sacrifices.
THREE FORMS OF PRAYERS
He said that when satanic agents are up in the heavenly realm, and the Christians begin to pray on earth, the prayers of the Christians appear to them in three forms. All prayers appear like smoke that is rising up into the heavens.
Some prayers appear like smoke, and it goes drifting along and disappear in the air. These prayers come from people who have sin in their lives and they are not willing to deal with it. Their prayers are so weak, they are blown away and disappear in the air.
The other type of prayer is also like smoke that rises up until it reaches this rock, but it does not break through the rock. These are usually people who try to purify themselves, but they lack the faith in what they are doing as they pray. They usually ignore the other important aspects that are needed when someone prays.
The third type of prayer is like smoke that is filled with fire. As it rises up, it is so hot that when it reaches the rock, the rock begins to melt like wax. It pierces the rock and goes through.
Many times, as people begin to pray, their prayers look like the first type, but as they continue praying, their prayers change and become like the second prayer. And as they continue praying, suddenly it ignites into fire. And their prayers become so powerful, they pierce through the rock.
Many times evil agents would notice that prayers were changing and coming very close to the state of fire, then these agents would communicate to other spirits on earth and they tell them, “Distract that person from prayer. Stop them praying. Pull them out.”
Many times Christians yield to these distractions. They are pressing through, they are repenting, they are allowing the Word to check their spirit up, Faith has been building up. Their prayers are becoming more focused. Then the devil sees their prayers are gaining strength and the distractions begin. Telephones ring. Sometimes we, in the middle of very, very intense prayer, the telephone rings and you think you can go to answer the phone and then come back and continue praying. When you come back, you go back to the beginning. And that’s what the devil wants.
Other kinds of distractions come your way, even if it means touching your body and bringing some pain somewhere. Even if it means making you hungry and you want to go to the kitchen and fix something to eat. As long as they can get you out of that place, they have defeated you. And he will say to the pastors, “Teach people. Set aside some time. Not for just some casual kind of praying. They can do that the rest of the day. Once in a day, they should have a time when they are focusing wholeheartedly on God, nothing distracting them.
And if people persist in this kind of prayer and allow themselves to be inspired in the spirit and keep going and keep going, something happens in the spirit. The fire touches that rock, and it melts. And this man said, when the melting begins, it is so hot, no demon spirit can stand it. No human spirit can stand it. They all flee. They all run away. …..Continues in Part 2.
Prayer is very important in Christian life, but much as prayer is essential, praying without purity of genuine salvation is a waste of time. The Bible says, “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.” Ephesians 6:12-13.
To overcome the powers of darkness, what you need first is not prayer or fasting, it is not special prayer of special men of God, it is not anointing oil, but genuine salvation and purity of life. Prayer without salvation of soul and purity of life is a waste of time, it cannot pass the stronghold of darkness.
Salvation of soul and sanctification of life strengthen prayer and the person who prays. Let your prayer centers more on your spiritual growth and making heaven, because the primary reason Satan is your enemy is because he doesn’t want you to make heaven. Satan can allow you to get wealth, riches and everything of this life, but he doesn’t want you to get eternal life. It’s a grave ignorance with many Christians, pastors and churches of today whose prayers center majorly on earthly blessings and problems. But you must be wise to war against every force that wars against your onward journey to heaven.
Make it a must to pray every day and read your Bible. You can start by separating 1 hour for prayer daily and 30 minutes for Bible reading,and then you grow from there. Do Praise & Worship for the first 30 mins, spend 15mins on your spiritual life, and the remaining 15mins for others needs and people.
