Many will look at this video below and not understand what happened here. They may only see a preacher working roughly with a young man. But watch carefully and observe how the Holy Spirit works, as I walk you through the details that you cannot know or observe by just watching this video …
As I stood in front of this young man, the LORD revealed to me that he was demon possessed. I did not pray for him (the soft praying heard in the background was another pastor, just out of view of the picture ministering to someone else).
I just stood quietly in front of him, waiting for the demonic spirit to manifest that was in him. I knew from experience over the years that he would not be able to stay as the Anointing of the Spirit of God being radiated from within me, would call him out and cause him to react and to manifest.
No demon can stand where God is present. Just as in the days of Jesus Christ on earth, they cannot stand the Presence of His Spirit.
Moments later the demonic spirit began manifesting, immediately attacking the young man and trying to kill him. He was crushing this young man’s heart like you would squash an orange between your hands. I could visibly see how his whole body on the left side was being compressed as the pressure was applied. I began flowing in the spirit, not attacking the young man, but the spirit that controlled him.
A few moments later the demon spirit threw him down on the ground and intensified the attack in an attempt to crush his organs.
The LORD told me that he would die if he was not delivered within minutes and I could see this also. He was turning pale with pain and his entire body began vibrating and shaking with pain as he was being tormented.
Then the Holy Spirit said to me that the demon was not going to come out, because the boy had previously served the LORD, but had turned away from Him, and that this spirit had a legal right to be in his life.
There was only one way for deliverance to come. The young man needed to repent and do it quickly.
I led him in a short prayer and he prayed it with me.
As soon as he finished praying – In one moment of time – the evil spirit was dispelled from his body and instantly left him.
Be LED of the SPIRIT!
