Cindy Breshears; June, 2017:
I’m a 54 year-old, married, American woman who lives in Oklahoma. I ask for your time in reading this very amazing testimony. It is very important because it is something the Lord is revealing concerning how the enemy is secretly attacking His church from the inside. There are members of the church who actually are carrying extremely dangerous demons in them- some people may realize what they have, but I’m afraid many others don’t even know. These are witchcraft (Jezebel) demons and demons of various kinds that are in our churches. They are working against the plans of God much like Queen Jezebel was in the Bible- controlling spirits that war against God and His prophets. They kill, steal and destroy everywhere they can. They communicate with other various spirits all over the world, working to frustrate the desires of the Lord from being accomplished. They cause the church to be spiritually asleep, the leadership of the church to sometimes be spiritually asleep and ineffective, They block salvation and they keep the children of God from being able to walk in the Spirit and not by the flesh. If a Christian doesn’t make use of all that Christ bought for him with His precious sacrifice, like applying the Blood of Christ, that person or his family may be danger of physical, emotional, financial, or spiritual harm. I know this because, in His mercy and in His timing, God recently revealed to me that I, in fact, had a horrible, nasty, angry Jezebel spirit as well as other demons that were passed down in me from birth from my mother’s side of my family.
In God’s mercy, He has allowed me to witness His wonderful displays of His power in delivering me. God directed and orchestrated perfectly for me, in His grace and love, a powerful, wonderful deliverance that was a process (by prayer and fasting, just as Jesus said) that I went through late last year (Nov., 2016). I say it was a process because at the time the demons were cast out, the Lord gave the instructions that I should fast for 14 days; after they were cast out, a terrible amount of spiritual attack came upon me to try and get me back again. It was just as Jesus spoke about when He said a demon would try and return with seven more spirits worse than himself. Gradually over time, little by little, with God’s help, I believe I am walking now in total victory. Our merciful God led the whole situation by directing the woman of God and her family who were laboring for me in prayer, fasting and following instructions given by the Holy Spirit. I know now with all my heart that when a person is delivered from demons, that person needs men and women of God around you who are totally committed to lovingly help you in prayers with all their hearts. God’s plan was that the deliverance be done in Ghana using a faithful woman of God (originally from Ghana) whom He had brought into my life in 2015. Her name is Agnes DiPierro and she is founder of Solomon’s Porch, God’s House of Prayer and Healing.
This ministry has a branch in Ghana and also in Cashion, Oklahoma. God had us meeting and praying together for 15 months before He revealed to her that I needed deliverance and where it should happen. When this revelation and deliverance was accomplished, I was shocked, appalled and heartbroken to find out this truth of what Satan had done through me to God’s people. After the deliverance, as a part of maintaining my deliverance, the Holy Spirit would show me people the demon had hurt and He would remind me of what had happened in my life and how my anger or jealousy or resentment would give the demon authority to go and do whatever he wanted. I was so heartbroken as God showed me these things. I would repent and ask God to forgive me, I would renounce the curse I’d placed on the family, and then I would pray for God to restore whatever the enemy had stolen from them. I’d been in the church for 20 years, involved in different aspects of children’s ministries- believing in God with my mind yet carrying this horrible spirit in me that was working against all of those ministries to scatter them and prevent salvation. I was able to go to church, praise and worship, listening to sermons and loving what I was hearing., yet afterwards I always struggled with doubting if God really accepted me, worrying, being fearful and failing to live in the peace of God. The whole time this demon was sitting in me in the church, watching and observing and using me and my mind to come against the people of God. He (the demon) would insert envious thoughts or judgments against other people in my mind (that I didn’t take captive to the obedience of Christ). He (the demon) had the legal right to stay and use me because some old witchcraft allegiance from my family bloodline that had never been repented of and renounced. Then, when I did nothing to renounce or rebuke him, he did just what he wanted to do- steal, kill and destroy. We know that Satan absolutely hates people, especially Christians and Jewish people, and he used me (my mind, my words, my judgment, anger, fear, worry, resentment, or bitterness) as a vehicle to do what he wanted. I’m convinced he is using others in the church to hurt God’s people and purposes as well. I believe now is the time God wants the people He has chosen to be brought back to Him and be delivered from the power of darkness. I hate what Satan used me for and I want everyone to know what Satan has done and what he continues to do.
I have seen the awesome love and power of Jesus Christ perfectly cast this demon out of myself and also of others; I know the struggle of the battle for my mind that followed and God’s provision for maintaining my deliverance by strengthening this faithful Christian woman to stay with me and help me in prayer. I know that God wants this knowledge to be out there; He wants the church to know about this and how to have the victory in Jesus’ name. He wants us all to be free indeed. He wants His church to prepare themselves to get rid of this filthy spirit in the church so that the work of God can really progress. He doesn’t want His people to continue to sit in churches spiritually asleep, spiritually dead, unable to walk in the Spirit but continuing to walk in the flesh, deceived, blinded, believing they are doing the work of God even though they’re still pawns of the devil. That is what the Lord wants me to tell, that’s the testimony that He wants me to give. I thank and worship my Lord for how He provided for me a precious servant of His (Mrs. Agnes DiPierro) and her godly family. In their ministry in Ghana, they worked diligently with love in prayer and fasting and spiritual battle for me- for my salvation, for my deliverance—trusting and relying on God to oversee and be in control of it all. He wants His church to know this truth, to walk and occupy in the authority, freedom and power that Jesus died to give us. Jesus gave us so much, but we’re not making full use of His victory. I wish I could more fully express how wonderful and huge this is to me– it’s difficult to put it all down in a testimony. Jesus is Lord!!
Cindy Breshears; September, 2016:
My life as a professing Christian has been nothing to be proud of. My life in Christ up until not too long ago has been a path of trying to do my best for God, but in reality, creaking, groaning and failing. If you, Christian friend, were blessed with praying, believing Christian parents who covered your life with the power of God’s word and you are free indeed, then this testimony may not seem too relevant to you. For those of you like me, though, it’s going to be the best news you’ve ever received in your whole life, no matter how old you are.
I’m talking now to Christians, but to Christians who are having trouble with their faith, trouble believing God’s promises. I’m talking about having trouble believing God no matter how hard you try.
Please bear with me as I share some history:
Although I was saved as a kid (I think I was 11 or 12 at the time) at one of the local churches, I didn’t receive any discipleship and quickly drifted away from God and His commandments. I realize now that He never drifted away from me. Life at my house growing up was tough. My parents had divorced when I was 2 or 3 and so my dad lived several states away — I saw him usually once or twice a year at holidays. My stepdad was an alcoholic and abusive; my mom was a real victim of the devil’s schemes- she was depressed, angry, usually distraught and desperate for my stepdad to stay- no matter what. Living in a small town also makes you very aware of everyone else’s opinion of you so this just added to the gloom that covered our house. When I was 10 years old, their son, my little brother, was born. My stepdad left shortly afterwards.
I must testify, God did greatly bless me with different things throughout my life to get my attention! He blessed me with a college education, a well-paying job, good health. He gave me a wonderful, loving, patient husband, Bruce, who has weathered a lot of storms in our life together. In 1998, God miraculously gave us two beautiful newborn baby girls to adopt who were born just one day after the other (this miracle was when He really started getting my attention!). He healed our newborn baby daughter, Suzi, from a very rare and extremely serious life-threatening illness- with no lasting disabilities like blindness, deafness, or mental impairment. Also, He was with me in 2002 (comforting me with that ‘peace which surpasses all understanding’ – Phil. 4:7) when I had to be alone at the hospital with my little brother, Tony, who was dying (he’d shot himself in the head and the doctors had told me he would definitely die, it was only a matter of time). I know God worked that situation out in such a way that I had to be alone at the hospital with Tony for those 3 days– He works so powerfully when He can get us alone with Him! All I knew to do was to read the Bible out loud in his hospital room because I didn’t know if he was aware of anything that was going on around him and I didn’t know if there were any evil spirits there tormenting him. God reminded me at that time that Tony had been saved as a youth and that although his life wasn’t a good testimony, Jesus had still saved him, Tony did believe in Jesus, and that God is just in all His ways. In 2004, God (again!) miraculously saved our daughter, Suzi from a horrible accident at Home Depot by placing a medi-flight supervisor (on her day off!) to take charge of everything at the scene of the accident. He also gave me a wonderful dream of my little brother, Tony that year to remind me of what He’d said to me back at the time of his death. He showed Himself faithful in many ways through the years.
I know my family must have been (and probably still are) a joke to many of our church-going friends because since 2000, I have kept pushing my husband to take us from church to church to church trying to get a greater realization and understanding of God! I mean, I knew with all my heart that God existed because of the miracles I just spoke about. Although I believed in Jesus, I knew there were so many things in the Bible that I just wasn’t experiencing. No matter how I tried (and believe me, I really, really, really tried!), I just couldn’t acquire the believing and the pure faith talked about in the Bible. Why did my mind wander so much every time I tried to pray? Why was I filled with such dread and dismay every time I tried to pray for the salvation of a lost family member or friend? Why did I not believe God would really hear my prayers and answer them? Why did I feel so condemned all the time even though I tried to do things to please God? And why were there voices in my mind, scattering my thoughts?
God then led us through a series of events to our current church body, Church Ablaze. There, at last, we heard the really deep truths of God—that because of Jesus’ absolutely perfect obedience and then His exaltation to His Father’s right hand, that we are to occupy this earth for Him as His ambassadors until He comes to the earth again. These were wonderful truths preached by men of God through whom the Holy Spirit would speak, guiding us into the powerful truth of God. We were surrounded by people who lived by the power of the Holy Spirit.
However, for me, although these wonderful truths were preached and explained in detail, my ability to really take hold of faith and live a victorious life in Christ still seemed out of reach. This only brought more despair because as I looked around me, I saw believers who were walking in victory, while it seemed to me that my family and I were still standing still.
It was at this time, (praise my Lord and Savior!) that at 52 years of age (I can joyfully say in the fullness of HIS time), God made His move to open my eyes completely about His truth. Although I say 52, he actually started a few years before this by pointing me in the direction of different people of God who had great testimonies of His power in their lives by answering their wholehearted prayers. I read all their lives’ stories—Corrie ten Boom, Elisabeth Elliott, Charles Trumball (Elisabeth E.’s uncle), Amy Carmichael, E. W. Kenyon, George Mueller, Watchman Nee, Brother Andrew, and most recently, He’s shown me the life of Africa’s evangelist, Reinhard Bonnke. God used the lives of these people to illustrate to me the great truths that the Bible tells us about over and over and over. The truth about who Jesus is, the totality of what Jesus accomplished for us, what He does for us right now! How He will actually live His very life through us, in us, occupying us.
In the spring of 2015, when His time was right, I met a wonderful, straight-shooting woman of God, Agnes DiPierro. She was also at Church Ablaze, we had just ‘somehow’ not met each other yet. She is a woman whom the Lord led to Oklahoma City in 2014. She is originally from west Africa. In 1999, the Lord made a way for her to immigrate to the U.S. and she lived in New York City until she moved here. In 2010, the Holy Spirit came upon her in power to teach her all about God’s life for us. She is a true vessel of His; I can truly say she is a person wholly and completely dedicated to spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ and faithful to following His guidance. This means being willing, by the leading and power of the Holy Spirit, to pour her whole life into showing people how to be free in Jesus Christ.
Through the Lord using Agnes to pray and fast with me and for me and my family, strongholds are being torn down and chains are being broken. One of the ways God uses her is by her obedience to fast and pray for a person. He then reveals to her ways the enemy is working against that person’s life. I found that to be so true as we spent time together. All I can say is ‘What favor!’– ‘What a gift!’ To have someone come along side you who is willing to take the time and to work so hard in prayer and fasting, to help free me from the bondage of the devil that I’ve been held under all these years. I’m telling you: It’s work! It’s not pleasant! When the Bible says we’re in a war, we’re in a war! Jesus paid the price to equip us with the weapons to fight the fight against our enemy. He wants us to occupy the life He’s given us. The devil will hold Christians captive until they learn how to use all Jesus has given us to break free from the old, old bondage! I’m basically a first generation Christian. There was no faith in God where I grew up. Mom read her Bible often, but never had any real assurance of salvation- I believe she was probably saved, I just think the devil had her in too much bondage to feel saved. I had a lot of areas in my life the enemy has used to work against me.
Let me tell you about what happens when a Christian person starts praying to God and fasting to break old generational strongholds from their lives: You get sick. You are attacked with nausea, headaches, chills. You are attacked with dizziness, earaches, heart racing, fever. Praise God, when you begin to pray in the name of Jesus, the enemy has to flee. He has to and he does it pretty immediately. The devil sends horrendous dreams to terrify you into giving up. It’s not pretty. When you finally start resisting Satan and his dominance over your life, he gets really mad. So far, you haven’t been any threat to him, so he doesn’t really bother you much. You haven’t really done anything to further the kingdom of Christ. You may have taught some Sunday school or you may have helped out at some pre-packaged VBS or maybe AWANAS, but, for the most part, have you seen anyone get saved lately? That’s right where Satan likes us– complaining about the world around us but ignorant of the power you have in your mouth to do anything about it. He will send his demons to your dreams. There were nights, after I started praying and fasting to drive the enemy away from my life and the lives of my family that I would hear a voice in my dreams, saying threatening things, and then the number of voices would increase to the point of being a tidal wave of threatening voices, screaming in my mind, trying to scare and intimidate me. Sometimes I would at the same time feel my throat being choked. All I could do in the dreams was to scream “In Jesus’ name” over and over and every time, every time- the voices would leave me. I would wake up and check to see if I’d woke my husband up, wondering if I’d been screaming out loud.
But I thank God because what the devil meant for evil, God meant it for good (Gen. 50:20). Every time the devil attacks me, my faith grows because it makes me know without a doubt that the Bible is true and that the name of Jesus is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and those on earth, and of those under the earth (Phil. 2:10).
Agnes shared with me that a few months before our meeting, the Lord had allowed her to experience attacks from the various types of spirits that occupy Oklahoma. They are giant enemies. They lull us into complacency. They make us think just going to church on Sunday is all God wants from us, that He doesn’t really expect us to try and seek His kingdom first, before other things in our lives. God showed her, in dreams and visions, that these spirits can be associated with the various old peoples that occupied the promised land in the Old Testament: Jebusites, Hittites, Amorites, etc. God was with her, but He allowed them to torment her for awhile to show her how to fight them in prayer; helping her to get stronger in Christ.
He revealed to me in a group of dreams an area where a generational curse had been passed down to me from my mother’s side of the family. It had to do with an old, old wicked agreement made in some past generation with the enemy a long time ago and I think unknown by my mom or grandma. This had allowed Satan to have rights to use me, even though I am a Christian. If you aren’t fully occupying your life with Jesus, Satan can really blind you to his works in your life—it just presents itself in a lack of faith, a nagging unbelief that God really accepts you as His.
But now, the joyous part! Because I know God revealed this truth to me at this time, I know that it’s His desire for me to be rid of this old bondage, this old stronghold, this old allegiance with the devil. Through prayer, fasting, renouncing the old vow, confessing to God and repenting, forgiving ancestors who’ve caused this, I know I am delivered, although, believe me, the enemy didn’t go without a fight.
Numerous, numerous times during the past year, God has confirmed His word that has been spoken during the Prayer Conference Call. God is working! He is willing and able! He desires His people to focus on Him! Give Him some of your time- more of your time than you ever have before. The first thing the Lord revealed to Agnes about me was that the old time was over for me to keep looking into the lives of other Christians to try and emulate their walk, to stop trying to get to know God by studying someone else’s life with Him. He gave her a very vivid dream about me, so that when she told me, I was overwhelmed with His accuracy and His care for me as His child. He wants me to trust in Him and Him alone. It’s been over a year now and I’m still learning, little by little. He’s showing me that I should pray about what I want to do for Him and then try and step out in it. If it’s not His will, don’t worry, He’ll just put a stop to my plans. It’s that easy, but the trusting is the catch.
What I had never realized before, what the devil had hid from my eyes is the fact that when Jesus did what He did, we were given the responsibility to occupy this earth in His name. God gave humans mouths. He gave us language. His Bible declares over and over and over again how we are to use His word, speak, pray (again, speaking), declare, to understand that we have been seated in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus. It isn’t bragging. It’s nothing, absolutely nothing, about us. It’s all about Jesus. Please get this! He is King of kings- He is Lord of lords. He is seated in the highest of the heavens. At His Name every knee will bow, every tongue will confess that He is Lord to the glory of the Father.
He didn’t go through what He went through on the cross- by what He suffered at the hand of man and at the hand of His own Heavenly Father in the hours of darkness on the cross (He was made sin and sickness) for us to live such sickly, anemic lives, just barely crawling into heaven at the last minute. He expects us to fight the devil. He expects us to save lost people. He expects us to love other people and save them in His name. He expects us to love others in the power of the Holy Spirit, to rout the devil and his demons from the strongholds that have been created in our lives. To do this, we must obey the word that says forgive, have no bitterness in us, love as we have been loved. If we don’t obey that word, the devil has a legal claim on us and we won’t be able to shake him. Believe me, fellow American Christians, the devil has us in major strongholds and chains. The devil has us too busy worrying about the symptoms of evil– abortion, LGBT issues, ISIS, racism, the downfall of America as we know it.. it’s all because we haven’t occupied our lives the way Jesus wants us to. If we will only humble ourselves and put Jesus first in our lives and do what He says to do, we will see a change in the world around us.
Oh please believe!!! Jesus is real! He is God! He is very much alive! The devil hates us! He hates Christians and Jews the most, but have no doubt, he hates all human beings because we’re all made in the image of God. He wants us all to die. I’m imploring you—believe in Jesus; focus on Him, don’t allow yourself or your family to be entertained to death, don’t let the devil devour your mind with secondary issues. Yes, there are troubles around us, but Jesus is the way, the truth and the life! He loves you, He died a horrible death to give you eternal life- life that begins now!
What Joshua and the children of Israel did in the physical realm when God told them to go in, possess the land, destroy the ungodly people who have occupied the land that God had already given to Abraham—this is what God expects of us in the spiritual realm when we become His children. By praying His word, speaking language through the mouths He gave to humans alone, we are to rout the devil from our lives. It’s by no means pride when I say this! It has nothing to do with my wonderfulness! It is wholly based on the many truths Jesus spoke to us. In John 14:12, Jesus said, “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father.” Oh, when I finally grasped this truth! It’s all dependent upon Jesus! So much doctrine is contained in that phrase “because I go to My Father”. That speaks of His absolute, perfect obedience and the Father’s absolute satisfaction and acceptance of Jesus’ finished work! Study the Book of Hebrews! The works Jesus began on this earth He expects us to continue in them! What did He do while He was here? He healed the sick, He cast out demons, He provided for the hungry, He saved sinners, He protected His disciples, He even raised the dead back to life. It’s by no means arrogance to say He wants us to do the same. Read the Bible! Read Mark 16:14-19! Jesus was radical; He blew the minds of the Pharisees until they couldn’t take it anymore! Do you think we have any less of a need for Him and His powerful life today, in 2016, than they did in the 1st century of the church?
I ask my Father in heaven to forgive me because up until now I’ve been so negligent to share openly and without reservation the wonderful works You have worked in my life this past year. Forgive me, Father, for allowing the enemy to slow down my testimony, by making me more concerned for my own reputation than for your precious Name! Thank you for the freedom you’ve given to me from the bondage of the enemy, for showing me how to fight against my enemy, the devil, who hates me with all his evil, lying heart. Jesus, You paid it all! Yours is the supreme power!
Now, praise God, I know what Jesus meant when He said, ‘Therefore, if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.’ When I pray, I can focus on my prayer without distraction or feelings of condemnation. I no longer have racing, scattered thoughts. I have the peace of God in my heart and I know He loves me and my household. I know I can trust Him, whatever may come. When you look at my family, we may not have it ‘all together’ yet, but, praise God! He loves us and He is teaching us!
Ephesians 2:9-10 For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it isthe gift of God, not of works, lest anyone should boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.
John 8:36. Therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed.
Psalm 40:1-5 I waited patiently for the LORD; And He inclined to me, And heard my cry. He also brought me up out of a horrible pit, Out of the miry clay, And set my feet upon a rock, And established my steps. He has put a new song in my mouth—Praise to our God; Many will see it and fear, And will trust in the LORD.
from Cindy Breshears; March, 2016: I would like to share something amazing the LORD did for me back on January 13, 2016. The beginning of the day was completely ordinary. Then, around 2:00 in the afternoon, I started feeling the beginnings of an earache in my left ear. The odd thing was that I didn’t have any of the normal symptoms that usually go along with my earaches—no cold, no sore throat, etc. I hadn’t had an earache in probably 3-4 years, although when I was small I had very bad earaches every winter. This particular earache came upon me quickly enough that I didn’t have time to do anything to relieve it; I also knew from past experiences it would several days of antibiotics to relieve the pain. By 5:00 pm I was a little panicky. The pain was excruciating. I was attempting to pray about it but, because of the pain, not very successfully. I texted my prayer partner, Agnes, and asked her to pray for my ear. When my husband, Bruce, arrived home from work, I was just crying. At 6:00 pm, Agnes texted me back and told me to make a cup of tea and then call her on the phone. When I called, she told me we were going to pray over the tea and the honey I was to put in it, in Jesus’ name. I don’t want anyone to think this is some kind of magic, it is not! It is simply praying a believing prayer from the Word of God, the Bible, upon the tea and the honey in Jesus’ name. I put the phone on speaker and she prayed from her Bible, claiming the healing promises such as those made by the LORD in Isaiah 53:5 and Psalms 30:2. After she prayed, she told me the Holy Spirit said that the pain would be gone by midnight. I was so glad to hear that—even though there were a few hours left until then, I thought at least there is an end in sight to this pain, praise God. I drank the tea, thanking God for Jesus’ amazing sacrifice and the unsearchable riches He provided us. I just have to thank God and thank God and thank God! Two hours later and the pain had all but vanished! By midnight, it was gone completely and did not return. Hallelujah! Our God in mighty in power and so very gracious to us!
Those of you who have known this kind of truth about our LORD, please I bear with me. These revelations have been all new to me and honestly, has really been blowing my mind. J By God’s grace, I’m finally comprehending, after all these years, the complete truth of what Jesus accomplished for us when his sacrifice was accepted by His Father (Hebrews 9 & 10), He was resurrected and then He was seated on the throne next to Him. He wants all of His children to receive this truth. Like my sister in Christ, Agnes, always tells me, it’s not about a person; it’s all about Jesus. God shows no partiality (concerning people). (Acts 10:34)
Please note the ending in verse 12 of the following passages in which Jesus is speaking to His disciples- ‘because I go to My Father.’ It is the key. All answered prayer is to give Him glory and consequently, to glorify His Father.
John 14:12-14 NKJV
12 “Most assuredly, I say to you, he who believes in Me, the works that I do he will do also; and greater works than these he will do, because I go to My Father. 13 And whatever you ask in My name, that I will do, that the Father may be glorified in the Son. 14 If you ask anything in My name, I will do it.
Luke 18:17 NKJV
17 Assuredly, I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will by no means enter it.”
February, 2016 - This dear woman received the Lord’s healing of her body during the recent, powerful, 4-Day Revival presented by Solomon’s Porch, God’s House of Prayer and Healing in Accra, Ghana.
She had been sick for awhile and had visited local doctors, but with no improvement. She walked to the revival with her sons and testified that she had had to stop and rest several times along the way. Sister Agnes (Maame Nhyira) prayed for the woman and prayed scriptures of healing over a bottle of water and explained to those around that it is not the water that is healing but rather believing the Word of God spoken over the water that brings healing. The sick woman took the water and drank. She returned on a later day to give praise God and explain what had happened. She explained that after the revival service, she had been able to walk all the way home without stopping to rest. As soon as she entered her house, she became extremely sleepy—so sleepy, she said, that she went to bed and slept in the clothes she’d worn to the revival. She slept very well, and when she got up the next morning, she was able to cook and do things like normal. We give God all the Glory!
A week later, she came to the praise and prayer meeting at Solomon’s Porch and shared her testimony of her miraculous healing in Jesus’ name. Hallelujah! Here is her testimony–
