FROG EXORCISM TEN-DAY FAST INSTRUCTIONS (7/28/09)

“Then He appointed twelve, that they might be with Him and that He might send them out to preach, and to have power to heal sicknesses and to cast out demons.”---Mark 3:14-15 (NKJV)

“So they went out and preached that people should repent. And they cast out many demons, and anointed with oil many who were sick, and healed them.”---Mark 6:12-13 (NKJV)


“God never gives us discernment in order that we may criticize, but that we may intercede.”---Oswald Chambers


DEMON: an evil spirit; devil or fiend; an evil passion or influence; a person considered extremely wicked, evil, or cruel; a person with great energy, drive, etc.; a person, esp. a child, who is very mischievous


 
Aight Queens---

My apologies for not getting this out last night, but I came home and crashed---the sure sign that these next 10 DAYS are about to be “on and poppin'”. NO JOKE. Anyway, I'm wingin' as I go (the Holy Spirit is giving me what to say---Luke 12:12), but it feels like this is going to be more instructional than anything. However, I will say this off top: If you have not read, “What He Really Wants Is Your Seed” (in the notes), please do. I find it to be TOTALLY GOD that I would be released to pen this on the THIRD CREATION DAY. The day when he said, “Every SEED will produce more of its own kind...” (Genesis 1:11)


Which is why we are doing this. We, as women, as helpmates, as physical representations of the Holy Spirit, which the Amplified Version of John 14:26 describes as “Comforter (Counselor, Helper, Intercessor, Advocate, Strengthener, Standby)”, are here to stand in the gap for MEN AS A WHOLE and more specifically, the men in our personal heart space (family/friends) and our future husbands (whether we know who they are in the physical or not) to, through prayer and fasting, cast out the demons of evil passions so that they can be restored to their kingdom-building positions in the earth. Really, it's just that simple. In a time on the earth, when so many men are “gaining the world and losing themselves” (as the Message Version of Matthew 16:26 puts it), the attack against them to be the earthly kings God created them to be so that they can produce more of their own kind, has become a spiritual epidemic of monumental proportion. THIS SHOULD NOT BE AND WITHIN ALL OF US, WE HAVE THE POWER, THROUGH THE HELP OF THE GODHEAD, TO CHANGE THIS:


“Then Jesus answered and said, 'O faithless and perverse generation, how long shall I be with you? How long shall I bear with you? Bring him here to Me.' And Jesus rebuked the demon, and it came out of him; and the child was cured from that very hour.


Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, 'Why could we not cast it out?'


So Jesus said to them, 'Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you. HOWEVER THIS KIND DOES NOT GO EXCEPT BY PRAYER AND FASTING.”---Matthew 17:17-21 (NKJV)


The lead scriptures? The Holy Spirit had me lead off this message with them, because that is what Christ told the disciples they could do. When Christ left this earth, they were instructed to make more of their own kind (Matthew 28:19)...that would be us. John 8:31 says that if we abide in God's Word, we are his disciples. The following verse then says and then we shall know the truth and the truth shall make us free. WE HAVE THE ABILITY TO PREACH, HEAL THE SICK, CAST OUT DEMONS, in this case, evil desires, on this earth. And we shall.


So there's the spiritual pep talk. Let's get it started...


Frogs. While doing a brief study last night, I was reminded of when Pharoah was plagued by the frogs (Exodus 8:1-15). I shared in the “Frog to Prince” devotional that frogs are considered to have evil spirits attached to them (hence one confirmation for doing this), but a Rabbi by the name of Lazer Gurkow provided another very interesting insight:


"In discussing the second of the Ten Plagues, the Midrash mentions that every creature plays a role in G-d's master plan. If not for the frog, says the Midrash, how would the Almighty take retribution against Pharaoh?


Why does the Midrash single out the frog when there were nine additional plagues? The second plague was key because both Pharaoh and the frog shared a common appearance of APATHY.

 
The Apathetic Pharaoh

Pharaoh appeared apathetic in his denial of G-d. One can either accept the existence of G-d or reject it; but Pharaoh did neither--he simply ignored it. He regarded himself as the creator of his universe and never bothered to deny the true creator. He treated G-d as a non-entity, one that does not even merit denial.


The Apathetic Frog


In a sense one can argue that the frog too appears apathetic. Some creatures are clearly beneficial to the ecological system and enhance the lives of all creatures on the planet. Some creatures appear destructive, selfishly treating themselves to their every wish with no regard to the delicate balance of nature. Some creatures, such as the frog, neither contribute nor abuse, they simply are.


A Fitting Match


Both Pharaoh and the frog seem apathetic; Pharaoh to G-d, the frog to nature's cause. It was only fitting that G-d combat Pharaoh's apathy with a creature that itself appears apathetic.

Reflection

By using the frog G-d communicated another important message. The outward appearance of apathy is simply false. The frog's appearance of apathy disappeared as he responded with alacrity to the call of the Almighty. Though some appear outwardly so, deep down we all believe. We all have a mission to perform. We all play a role in G-d’s overall scheme.”

Apathy: lack of interest or concern, especially regarding matters of general importance or appeal; indifference; lack of emotion or feeling; impassiveness


Oh the irony of life. Here we are fasting for them to be freed, not from passion, but EVIL PASSION and the Rabbi is saying that frogs symbolize “apathy”, which draws me to the conclusion that men's flesh are causing their spirits to be numb to what really matters in this life: kingdom-building, purpose, godly power, PURITY (men are also called to live pure lives), freedom from what binds them, holistic prosperity.


Therefore, these next 10 DAYS are going to serve as an agent to assist in healing and restoring them. I know, and claim this for a fact because the Matthew 18:18-20 (NCV) says, “I tell you the truth, the things you don't allow on earth will be the things God does not allow. And the things you allow on earth will be the things that God allows. Also, I tell you that if two of you on earth agree about something and pray for it, it will be done for you by my Father in heaven. This is true because if two or three people come together in my name, I am there with them." There is great power in numbers...in unity. This is another reminder of why the Enemy doesn't want women to get on one accord...ON ANYTHING. He knows that prayers united drastically change the atmosphere! And so Queens, this is what the Holy Spirit has led me to instruct, again, for the next 10 DAYS (“10” symbolizing “restoration”):


1)
Something that drives your flesh, the next 10 DAYS, go without it. I don't mean something you should be going without ANYWAY (*blank stare*), but if you love ice cream, go without it. Television? Go without it. Shopping? Go without it. Texting? Go without it. Only you know what you seem to not be able to go without. Let me say this: We as women can tend to be judgmental, oftentimes about things we know nothing about. What may be a stronghold for you, will not be for the next sistah. YOU may not need to listen to secular music while SHE may not need to eat fast food. STAY IN YOUR LANE. We are to be on one accord. Don't get distracted. This is a unified effort, but PERSONAL MANIFESTATIONS will come as a result.

2)
Food is fine. ONLY WATER can be consumed as a drink. Now you can best believe that I am NOT a happy camper about this. I am not a water fan. But, I'm sure you can understand the purpose. Water symbolizes purification, truth and the Holy Spirit. Over the next 10 DAYS, we are petitioning God for those things to be restored in the lives of the men that we love.

3)
Anoint yourself *daily*. I mean, if I could get a hold of the men I am interceding for AND SHAKE 'EM (just kidding), I mean, anoint them, I would, but we are interceding. We are not here to BE GOD just to move the heart of God. If you've never anointed yourself before, or if you are unclear of the purpose, here's a really good link: http://www.abbaoil.com/t-anointingoilteaching.aspx. I love how the website cites the scripture, "...And the yoke will be destroyed because of the anointing oil." - (Isaiah 10:27-NKJV) We are doing this to consecrate ourselves, to ask God to bring an impartation (IN HIS TIME-Acts 1:7-Message) to the men we are praying for, to petition him to emancipate them from their strongholds AND to prepare them for purpose (Matthew 26:6-12). You will also be doing this for a personal reason as well: as a sign of preparation for your king...as Ruth did (Ruth 3:3). The link speaks of many oils you can use, but good ole' Kroger's brand (or wherever you grocery shop) olive oil will do just fine. Olive oil is a symbolism of God's grace. Anoint DAILY whatever areas of the body you are praying for men to be healed in.

4)
Pray for these men DURING DAWN HOURS. Psalm 119:147 says (NKJV), “I rise before the dawning of the morning, and cry for help; I hope in Your word” and Isaiah 58:10 says, “If you extend your soul to the hungry and satisfy the afflicted soul, then your light shall dawn in the darkness, and your darkness shall be as the noonday.” Isaiah is an assurance and we definitely want “light” shown, not just in the lives of the men that we love, but in our view of how to assist them in a way that removes our own fleshly perspectives from the situation. We want the SPIRIT OF GOD ONLY to reflect at this time.

5)
PRAY FOR EACH ONE BY NAME. You know I'm the “get a journal” chick. For each man you are praying for, write down their name, the issues that you are interceding for (make sure their APATHETIC SPIRIT is one of the issues) and ask God to lead you to an individual scripture for each one (HE WILL). Say them throughout the day. SPEAK THE WORD TO THE EVIL FORCES. They can't stand it.

6)
SACRIFICIALLY GIVE. No, don't roll your eyes at me. I am not using this as a time to do a FB offering call (ain't even my style). I'm not even necessarily saying money. But, we are expecting these men to give up some things in faith for receiving something better. When you stand in the gap for someone, you are helping them share the load in their journey. If they are going to give up a habit, a relationship, a secret, a lifestyle...whatever, as an act of faith, something that hurts your flesh to release, GIVE IT TO SOMEONE (yes to have). It could be your favorite pair of shoes. Your entertainment money for the month. A hair appointment that you set (and you know that you know someone who would be blessed by it). GOD WILL LEAD YOU. Just make sure that in the next 10 DAYS you do it and it's really something that's hard to part with.

7)
SEND THEM A PRAISE LETTER. The Bible says that death and life are in the power of the tongue (Proverbs 18:21). We are here to SPEAK LIFE into their dormant places. Now, you are not their mother nor do you need to have the Jezebel spirit of manipulation/control over you when you pen/type these. This is not a semi-stalker way of taking over their lives. God gives them the power of choice and we must respect that spiritual birthright. This is simply a letter speaking what you see in them...for them...about them according to the Word of God. A lot of men struggle with their spiritual identity because they are unclear of what that is. We are wanting them to transition from “frog to prince”. SPEAK ROYALTY INTO THEIR SPIRITUAL BEINGS. We are here to assist in the blood transfusion of the Spirit being poured into their human trinities (mind, body, spirit). BE SURE TO SEND THESE WITHIN THE NEXT TEN DAYS, send them in faith and trust in the power of God to do what he will. There is not to be a “follow up” effort (Did you get my letter? Did you get my email?). God says that his word will not return to him void, it will accomplish what he pleases for it to and “and it shall prosper in the thing for which I sent it.” (Isaiah 55:11) GOOSE BUMPS, RIGHT? Trust in that. Oh, and if it's your husband and you haven't met him (yet), write it anyway. Hold it. You'll present it...soon.

Aight Queens...big things on this side of 10 DAYS from now. Thanks for “touching and agreeing” with me. I am so excited to see what God will do.


AND GOD WILL DO.


He will move mountains and perform the miraculous.


Love you,
