SPIRITUAL WARFARE; THE BATTLEFIELD OF THE MIND 

When I had taken a three month break from writing, I didn’t go into details as to what was really going on with me and why I remained silent for that period of time until I received a prophetic word from the Lord about two weeks ago that I needed to share my testimony about the warfare that I was dealing with in my mind. That was a very stressful time for me and I was feeling like I just wanted God to end it all, and to call me home to heaven to be with him but that wasn’t his plan for me right now because he wanted me to trust him and to learn how to fight spiritually in order to live a victorious life. Everything that I’m about to tell you will sound so unreal, but if anybody think that demons aren’t real and that HELL isn’t​ real is sadly mistaken because they are, and they have manifested themselves to me on numerous occasions. When I had finally given up sex along with many other things that I was doing and rededicated my life back to Christ two years ago, that’s when the demonic attacks began. Demons started bringing up things about what I had done in my past but there was only one particular thought that they harassed me with continually, a thought that I will not reveal. And because I paid attention to them, I became disgusted with myself and believing their lies instead of standing firm on God’s word and believing what the word of God said about me which says: Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; old things have passed away; behold, all things have become new. ( 2 Corinthians 5:17) By continuously listening to them, I had unaware given the demons a foothold and they begin building strongholds in my mind. A spiritual stronghold is an incorrect thinking pattern that molds itself into our way of thinking and have the capability to affect a person feelings, how they respond to various situations in life, and they play a large role in our spiritual freedom. The demons purpose was to keep me trapped in bondage, making me a prisoner in my own mind to where I started feeling like there was no way out. They were trying to convince me that I was the person that they painted me to be in my mind and because i had given them a foothold, they unleashed their evil and tormented me day and night because I had many sleepless nights and they even came into my dreams to attack me while I was asleep by touching me in a sexual way knowing that I was vulnerable by being in an unconscious state. They wanted my flesh to get aroused because their aim was for me to relapse back into sin because they knew that I once had a problem with masturbation in the past, back in 2005 when I opened that door through phone sex, but not once did I relapse or give in to that sin. I could feel those strongholds in my mind even while being awake and they were very painful and it felt like a serpent was crawling and moving around in my head and that is no lie; PEOPLE DEMONS ARE REAL!!!!!! I recited every prayer that I Googled​ that you could think of but it seemed like nothing was working, and I was so unhappy that i wanted to die. I couldn’t understand why I was going through those things and why I was only being attacked with that one particular thought when I had done many other things throughout my lifetime. For a minute I thought that somebody had cast a spell on me by using witchcraft until I remembered that those spirits were familiar spirits because I had this same problem back in the early 2000’s. Back then a prophetess  came to me and told me that God said that I needed to pull down those strongholds but because I was very young and immature in christ, I didn’t understand what she was talking about. But today being mature and fully aware now, I know exactly what she meant. In 2 Corinthians 10:3-6 it reads: For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and punishing every disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled. Everything that Satan and his demons tried to make me believe in my mind, I started fighting back with the word of God and quoting scriptures about what thou says the Lord, and always starting it off by saying: It Is Written!!!  I am very careful now about what I think about, watch on television, read, and entertain so that I won’t open any more doors for the devil. And I tune in every morning faithfully to listen to sermons on Facebook live, and have became stengthened even more through the Man and woman of God and my faith also has became stronger. The more that I fought back spiritually, the more that I felt those stongholds becoming weaker and weaker by the day. They still try to harass me every now and then but it’s nothing like it use to be because I put on the whole armor of God everyday, I know who I am in Christ Jesus and know who I belong to and know that I am more than a conquer through Him who loves me; therefore if the Son makes you free, you shall be free indeed……( John 8:36)
