    Just a regular human trying to make sense of that which is not mine to understand. It'll be fun to find out in the end, but the ride is enjoyable enough to stay on for a bit.

    I haven't been on here in awhile, but figured I'd pop back in (saw a notification in my email box for here... they'd not been showing up for awhile). I think my work in this department may have finally come to a close. If I remember correctly, I'd come on here asking for advice about generational "curses" and binding the demons attached to such. I gave my ex-wife scripture that I'd gleaned from you folks, my mother and on my own, but apparently her belief in the thing was too strong. Finally, frustrated, I just asked God "Umm... I know that you let me fight these things, and this one doesn't seem to want to let go of her, and that I'm supposedly powerless in this... but YOU'RE not. So, um... could you please get rid of this thing since she can't or won't?" Bamf. That evening, she called me back and it had vanished that very day. Apparently the answer was that simple... I was too busy following the "rules" to ask my creator to step in. :) Since then, she has quit drinking, gone to rehab, has custody of her daughter again, AND is doing quite well. I haven't seen or been around any other spiritual cockroaches since, and I think it's because God decided I'd done all He wished of me. Of course, I'm not retired... I get the feeling if the Boss wants me to serve in that capacity again, then I'll go right back to it... but then, if that's the job He gives me, saying No is kind of stupid. For now, though, all is peaceful. I haven't read through all the replies since I stopped going on here, but the email I saw referenced this statement from Sue D.: "Just noticed that this post is from back in August of last year which is 6 months ago. Your bio info says you're a divorced man -- a believer? why are you living with a female and a guy as room mates. You and another guy, fine. But having a woman in the mix? just asking for problems?" To answer your question, I WAS living alone, but a friend (the female one) got kicked out of her home, and I let her stay there for a few days... at least, that's all I'd intended. She then lost her job, so I didn't kick her out. Her friend (a guy I'd known back in high school) was coming over all the time, and since he was living in a homeless shelter, I figured that if she and he worked together, they could find a home. So I let him move in. Eventually, I got sick of their laziness and lack of assistance with bills, and finally had enough, since they were destroying my home and I couldn't even get the police to make them leave, and didn't really want to use my gun for anything other than hunting. So, I left most of my belongings and went to a better, quieter place. My ex-wife's house, ironically. In a spare bedroom. I take care of her dogs and daughter while she's at work, church and school. We stay away from each other for the most part (we're divorced for a reason, after all), and I'll be gone soon, but she decided to be kind to me since I'd been so supportive of her. Every once in awhile, good deeds don't go unpunished. So, I guess while I don't "ask for problems", Sue, sometimes they just happen when trying to do the right thing. Doesn't make me less of a believer. Sorry if that disappoints you. :) Cheers, folks!

    He lets me fight them just fine. While I do not speak in tongues, the Holy Spirit is with me. That much I know. I appreciate the references. I just got done reading Mark again. I try to prime up every once in awhile before battle. As for your last statement, good sir, I can do whatever our Lord allows me to. I trust him more than you. No offense. :) Take care and be well.

    Got to deal with a new one this evening. My room-mate (a female) was bruised from a fall she took yesterday, and she'd been working all day. I took her hand and asked God to give her my strength, and my other room-mate (a male) freaked out, because her bruises on her leg apparently lightened before his eyes. I can't claim to have witnessed this... but he saw it. My eyes were closed. Our Lord is truly powerful, and I figure we're not supposed to forget that. I don't know if He wants me to keep telling you guys these stories. I probably won't any more. It was nice having a place to tell folks about the things I deal with. Thanks for being there during a time when I felt the need to tell people about the things He lets me do. Forget me. But always know that there are other people like me out there, and we're watching out for you, per God's orders. You'll rarely see us, but while we are not angels, we're fighting for you. It was a pleasure to share this with you, and thank you for listening. Time to go back to war. I think that's what He wants of me... so that's what I'm gonna do.

    I haven't heard back from my ex-wife about whether the thing is still there (I tried asking her about such, but she was too tired to answer)... but I figured I'd put for reference why this particular demon annoyed me so. It went after my 21 year old son and his 11 year old sister (no relation). She's a sweetheart. Apparently, this stupid thing decided that it was going to threaten my children's lives (I'm including the younger one even though I had nothing to do with her creation, because I like her), because of a curse that her grandmother placed upon her. I know many of you don't believe in that sort of thing, but it is Biblical. People like myself fight these sorts of things all the time. I guess that's what He wants us to do. Anyway, this particular blasphemous beast decided that it was going to take either my son's or her daughter's life if she didn't give up hers. As you can imagine, I didn't like the choices that were offered. If anyone is going to kill my son, it'll be me... and I won't. Hence, the stupid thing already started off on the wrong foot. It's a right I reserve that no one else gets to have. :) That's apparently the course of action that generational curses take (Yes, I've got scripture for it... I was surprised as well)... anyway, it's theoretically gone. I have a feeling that it's not going to show up again. I got to talk to it on the phone several times, and while I kept an inquisitive mind about the matter at hand (you kind of have to)... it had rather bad language which I matched word for word. This was NOT my ex-wife speaking... lots of vulgarity, which she's not a fan of. She explained later how her grandmother had cursed her when she was but a child. Long story short, crummy people. Brujas, as they're called in Mexican culture. I won't say what I'd call them in MY culture. "Witches" is is easiest way to explain it. People I don't like. The only reason I'm adding an explanation to this, which ironically a very simple event in my world, is to hopefully educate the readers. I'm used to monsters. The Lord, thankfully, allows me to fight them through his power. It ain't about me... I'm just a conduit. This latest incident makes me love the Lord, because He let me fight another monster. Some of you don't believe in those. They do believe in you. But they can't harm you if you don't allow them to. That was my ex-wife's mistake... and that's why I'm writing this. I don't care one way or the other what any of you think of me... but if the Lord gives me something that might educate you, I'd be reticent to not share it. My ex wife didn't give the Lord the power that He deserved in her mind, and that's why she couldn't bind the demon that was attacking her and threatening my kids. I tried to explain this to her, but she is a stubborn woman. I still don't know if I won the fight, but I will if it isn't done. I know He'll help me. Faith is a very powerful thing. The point is.... have faith in Our Father. It's easy to not have such... the world tells you not to. We've got a pretty decent God when it comes down to it, though... appreciate his teachings. His kid had some pretty cool things to say as well. Anyway, take care, folks... I know I sound like a bleeping bad Netflix movie, but that's my world. It's a pleasure to share it with you. I'm doing it because my boss told me to.... and He's bigger than all of us. :)

    Proud news, peeps. (By the way, Innerfire... I saw your message. The interface wouldn't allow me to respond. Didn't want you to think I was ignoring you... you're the person that was having this discussion with me, so please understand: the system got in my way.) God let me kill that generational demon that was haunting my ex wife! He told me this after I found out that she had a hive of flies surrounding her and attacking her head.... He said to me "You know, you're the father of your son, with her... and demons don't keep paperwork. Hence, you're part of the generation." So, I kicked its butt. I asked her to call me later to confirm, but if it DOES show up again, I'll go over there and tear it asunder. Anyway, this is what my mother and I call a "Praise Report". So I'm sharing it with you guys. You might not think I'm telling the truth, but I'm letting you know it anyways. Cheers! I'm very happy that the Lord lets me do this stuff.

    I asked my mother for verses that spoke of "binding". I don't know if these will do the trick, but since I've gotta honor her, these are what she gave me. She did ask me to apologize to you for being so aggressive, so I am sorry. I'm an aggressive person by nature, but I mean well. My mother and I argued about trying to emulate Christ, because my opinion was that he was a shepherd... and shepherds have to be tough. They have to fight wolves to protect their flock. I brought up the time that he turned the tables in the temple because the Pharasees were doing business in his dad's house. Jesus was not a wimp. :) Anyway, she's probably right. So, I'm sorry if the way I write things seems like I'm attacking. You're not my enemy. I'm just happy to have someone listen. So, here are the verses she asked me to relay to you concerning demon butt-kicking (my term, not hers). Matthew 12:29 For who is powerful enough to enter the house of a strong man like Satan and plunder his goods? Only someone even stronger--someone who could tie him up and then plunder his house. Matthew 16:19 I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven; whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven." Matthew 10:8 Heal the sick, raise the dead, cleanse those who have leprosy, drive out demons. Freely you have received; freely give. Mark 16:15-18 15 He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to all creation.16 Whoever believes and is baptized will be saved, but whoever does not believe will be condemned. 17 And these signs will accompany those who believe: In my name they will drive out demons; they will speak in new tongues; 18 they will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all; they will place their hands on sick people, and they will get well.” John 14:12 12 Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing,and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father. Cheers! -Drew

    Let me know when you do... if you'd like my input, I'd be more than happy to add my 2 cents. For reference, my mother is Pentecostal, my father liked Methodist, but we did go to a Presbyterian church for awhile. I think we all dance around a bit before we find the place we are best to settle. One time at a Church of God (which seems like a redundant statement), I was 12 years old and my Mom got "slain in the spirit". For anyone else reading this, that means she was on the ground, speaking in a language we didn't know and shaking. I was aghast... and when I went to check on her, some old lady slapped me in the head and said "You leave your mother be, boy! She is communing WITH THE LORD!" I replied "No, Ma'am... she is having a seizure. And if you touch me again, I'll send you to God really quickly to find out if I'm right." She fainted. I caught her as she fell... I'm not a monster. Mom ended up being fine... but I didn't understand at the time what was happening. We all have our different variations on how we worship and all that. In the end of things, as long as we're all going on the same path when it comes down to it, it's a good thing. I don't speak in tongues. They tried to send me to a children's church camp where that was their goal... but I saw so many children faking it just for approval, that I just wouldn't allow that to happen to me. I felt "The Spirit", but I figured if any words were coming out of my mouth, I wanted the world to know that they were my ideas. Makes me a bad Pentecostal, I suppose, but I figure that if the good Lord made me this way, whatever decisions I make are already decided, what with Him being Omniscient and all that. Anyway, thanks for the conversation. It truly is appreciated. These aren't things I get to talk to people about in general, so it's nice to have a release. I'm still gonna have my mother give me proper scripture about the "binding" deal, because while I know I'm somewhat crazy, I didn't wish you to think that the things I speak of are not of the scripture. :)

    I'm going to give an example of one of the times I chased off a demon... I like having a place where I can tell others about these things! That's pretty cool! I know we all don't believe in the same things, being followers of different doctrines and whatnot (i.e. as a Presbyterian, Innerfire, you probably don't get to witness folks speaking in tongues and some of the wackiness that goes along with that), but I figure if I throw a story out here, whether you agree with it or not, it'll be food for thought. I only promise that it's not poisoned. :) About 3 months ago, I was sitting here at my desk doing my job, and a dark feeling came over me. I saw a vision of a little boy in a hospital bed, and I saw a demon looming over him. I knew this boy... it was my room-mate's son. She was at work. I don't know how to describe what happened next, other than me (in my vision, anyway... not in real life) roaring at it and demanding that in the name of the Father, The Son and the Holy Ghost to leave that child be. I figured I was just hallucinating or something weird like that, but I was not on any medication to cause such a thing. One minute later, my phone rang. It was my room-mate. Her son was in the hospital and she'd left work to be with him, and she said he had a high grade fever to the point of it being an emergency... and it broke literally just before she called me. I had no clue that her son was in danger other than what I saw. She said "Something told me to call you... Bran is fine. And thank you." I replied "I'm glad he's OK. Thank God, not me. He did the work. Tell Bran's dad I said hi!" That was an odd thing, but that's the sort of situations people like me deal with every day. It's not something that can be explained scientifically. These things do happen in this world. If there's chicanery afoot, I don't know... but I know her son is fine. In the end, I praise God, because he let me help that boy. The result in the end is what matters, way as I see it. My mom is still at church, or I'd have her give me the proper verses to tell you about "binding" and whatnot. She loves to share with other Christians. I could Google it, but I thought it would be more fun to say "And here's what my Mom found!", because it would probably make her blush. Anyway, thanks for listening. :)

    Fair to say. However, try to remember, God sent his son to us as a Man. Jesus walked sinless, but was also just as human as the rest of us. That was His entire point... to show what we could be. That's why He died for our sins. I'm not going to pretend to know the exact scripture from the King James Bible that refers to "binding" of demons (my mom is better at knowing that sort of thing, and once read me several verses on the subject), but my friend, it's not some hocus pocus TV crap. We all have power over demons, so long as we follow the word. That's my understanding anyway. I know I've cast out demons. I do not say this to brag... I just know it is a thing that has been done. It sometimes takes a toll. However, what I always say is that it's not me doing it... I'm just God's spotter, if you will. He's the one with power. Thankfully, our Lord is kind enough to let us help others through Him. Anyway, not trying to be argumentative. I just figure as another of God's children, you'd not want to lessen yourself and believe that demons are more powerful than you. We have souls for a reason. I figure our creator knew what He was doing. :) But yes, I will stick to His word. That is wonderful advice.

    Thanks for the reply. I'm actually dealing with a generational demon that has hit my ex-wife. I was able to bind it, but from what I have read and what I know (I'm not much of a reader... I just do what I know), that's the best I can do. I've told her to have faith in the Lord, but in the end, this isn't one I can knock out apparently. It has spoken through her to me on the phone, and they sound about as lovely as one would imagine. When I was staying with her for a week, it left her be. I may have to return there to finish the stupid thing off, but that can only happen if she truly believes. She says she does, but in the end, I figure that unless she accepts Christ as her savior and realizes that He and his dad are more powerful than the foolish demon that her grandmother placed upon her, there's not much else I can do. If you have any better advice, I'd love to hear it. I'm not a professional "exorcist" or anything like that... I just don't like spirits haunting people. I stop them when I can. This one has irked me, because if it harms her daughter (not my child), I'd literally walk through hell to destroy it. I'd rather have the advice from people who know more about this than I. Cheers.

    I'm new here, because I tire of talking to my friends in the real world about his, and since my mother (who guided me into Christianity in my youth) believes me on this but is rather close-minded on the subject, I figured I'd throw this at a new audience of people who don't know me. Most of my life, I've been able to see and hear demons. As a child, I could also hear angels singing (it's rather beautiful) when I'd get scared... it was such a comfort, even though a tad frightening on its own when you're hearing an audible noise in the room, yet as you turn your head, there's nothing there no matter how the sound seems to be fixated in a place. Anyway, as I got older, these things angered me. I'd grown used to them screaming at me daily, and often wondered if perhaps I was simply schizophrenic or something like that... then I saw one floating over my friend who had been acting in a rather damaging fashion to myself and others. I put my hand on his head and told it (well, I'll watch my language here... I'm a Christian, but I don't limit my language to things that I do not respect) to get out with a few expletives added, as these things kind of anger me. It vanished and he fell down.... but felt better after and his behavior changed for the better. I'd done this before when younger, or just stood up to the things and told them that "You know you I work for... you know you're not gonna win. Now go." (or something to that extent.... I was like 8 or so with my first recollection of that, so my memory is probably false to some degree)... but the things would run. God once insinuated to me that I'm like teflon to them... they can't come in. But I'll always hear them screaming. It's not like the crap they show on TV, when you see these things, at least by my experience. It's like a feeling more than anything... raw, guttural emotions, twisted thoughts and all that congealed into a space that sadly, only a few of us (apparently... my mother and I can, but I don't know how plentiful our numbers are) can see. I got used to it. I'm 43 now. I've had 3 children, and my eldest son, who is 21, is starting to see them. I can never be sure if it's because of his mother's teachings, the autism (a trait we share), the medication he's been put on... or if somehow, the Lord wants him to do as I do, and send them away when they haunt those in our path. I've followed along wherever God has sent me over the past several years, and it seems that He always sets me in a place where something vile is tormenting a human (usually a non-believer, but that often changes once I make the things run). I've discussed this with my mother, but she takes the Bible literally, all while calling it a "Living Word", something I can respect. God once told me to tell her something, and it touched her: "Becky, you've always served Me, and I am grateful... but as for the Bible... do you think that's really ALL I had to say?" She cried. It's not like a burning bush appeared before me or anything... it's just something I was told to communicate. He's since given me a vacation from fighting these monstrosities, per my request. It was causing me mental harm. However, I'm ready to ask the Lord to give me the sight back, because while I can no longer see or hear their horrid screaming, I know when they are around, and I'm guessing that my work in His good name is not done. Yeah, I know. Sounds like a plot for a horrible "B" Movie or just some self aggrandizing jerk who is trying to brag. This is THE ONLY place online I've ever mentioned this, and I almost wish I wasn't... but I figure if there's anyone to ask advice from, it would be fellow believers. Granted, I'm more of the front line grunt when it comes to being a "believer", but I know what I see. I know what God wishes me to do. I can't enter a church because the chorus of joy from the people there overwhelms my senses. This is not a blessing... but others have been helped by me, so I suppose it is not a curse. I'm not even sure what to ask you guys, honestly. Any advice would be wonderful and taken graciously. Anyone calling me a charlatan or a Satanist will not be responded to, but know that I'll just be chuckling at comments like that and wishing that you were correct. Anyway, no matter what, thanks for listening. I truly appreciate it. Thug for God, Apparently, Drew
