I checked with Sally this morning. She reported the most savage demonic attack over the weekend she had ever experienced.
This is new ground for me. Over the years I have walked with a number of people who have a variety of soul and spirit assaults, but never someone where the demonic was so consistently pounding on her body.
Clearly there are some gaping holes in my theology and practice.
On the bright side, today was a wonderful day for her, which suggests that the critters feel it would be propitious to stay out of the way when I am on the playing field. Some small victory anyway.
In that context, she went to the doctor and got the results of her blood tests. Because of physical issues going back to her childhood, her body has been a wreck for a long time. Doctors told her that she might not live past 20 and she should engage in no physical activity because she had the bones of a 90 year old, due to calcium and phosphorous issues in her body.
Over the years, she has declined to live as fragile and she is well past 20 years old, but every blood test shows those two factors as critically low.
Today, the blood tests show both of those in the normal range.
Astounding and not the result of any change in the natural.
Which, of course, sets my mind racing, wondering what the connection might be between the Giver and those two minerals! And it underscores how little we know about the spirit/body dynamics.
What if we had an entire protocol that could trace back every malabsorption problem back to a particular dynamic in the human spirit?
But I digress.
Servant is safe in her hiding place, still strong and clear, having been spared the pain of the weekend. That is surprising and wonderful.
Prophet is still comatose in the brain. I am getting restless about leaving him that way.
I pinged Giver who we had left on an eagle’s eyrie. No answer.
I have learned that even when a portion of the spirit cannot “speak” they can communicate through feeling if I give them a simple question.
So I said, “Giver, I suspect you can hear my voice. Would you please let Sally know if you are guarded?”
A weak affirmative feeling.
I did a little teaching here while Giver could listen. I pointed out that the Mosaic Law had a minimum number of sacrifices. Ideally each sin. At the least, three times a year in Jerusalem. But barest of bare minimums was to kind of sort of participate in the national Day of Atonement prayer.
However you want to slice and dice the minimum, there is no maximum. Imagine a guy with sex bondage that he just could not get over, no matter how he tried, showing up at the Temple to be greeted by a sign that says, “Only ten sacrifices for adultery allowed in a lifetime. After that, you are just damned!”
This is utterly contrary to the whole of our theology of redemption.
So I invoked the unlimited cleansing factor of the Cross of Jesus Christ, and asked for whatever sin, rebellion or iniquity the demons used to capture Giver, to be expunged.
Immediately, Sally could see Giver in a room, filled with yellow light.
So far, so good.
We asked God where Giver needed to be when she was removed from the room. Back to the eyrie?
Sally felt God said, “The heart.”
Giver cringed because there were waves of ugly color pulsing through the heart.
Sally had listened to “The New Spiritual Authority: Intimacy” some years back. I reviewed belongingness, worth and competence for her.
Belongingness comes when your needs are met consistently.
Worth comes when you are included in community.
Competence is self-explanatory.
All three were savaged in childhood, beginning with her mother pounding on her womb to try to cause a miscarriage and extending to all sorts of spiritual, emotional and physical abuse in childhood.
I explained how the three components of our tripod of identity parallel the Father, Son and Spirit and they parallel the first three chambers of the heart.
Giver could see that there is plenty of reason for the heart to be inhospitable, considering the perversion of the work of the Trinity.
I pondered what to do, and where to go. I heard nothing from the Spirit, so decided to just “go long.”
I proclaimed the perfection of the Trinity in all manifestations and asked God to simply cleanse all of the tissue of the heart of all the defiled events and memories.
There was drama for a bit and Sally felt quite sick.
Eventually it settled and she said she could see the heart outside her body, filled with light.
So . . . what do you do with a heart outside the body?
She informed me that was really weird. I already knew that.
And I had no grid or framework for it, so I decided to shrug and wait and watch.
My experience has been that it is pretty hard for the enemy to maintain a deception or fraud long-term, so if this is not God, there will be markers soon.
I queried Giver about moving into the new and improved heart, outside the body, and she was up for it.
Asked God if that is what He wanted, and instead, He put her in a bubble outside the body, feeling quite safe.
Now we have the heart and Giver outside the body.
On the one hand, it makes sense, in that the body is the object of a whole lot of abuse from the enemy. On the other hand, it is just weird. I have no idea how God is going to process this long-term.
Fortunately, we do weird well here at Sapphire.
We parked it there, knowing that dramatic visual images during ministry times are encouraging, but the real marker is measureable, verifiable, sustained change. Not sure what to look for, but I am sure there will be a report of some sort.
