A Cry for Help
By Emilia Gomes
“There is no fear in love; but perfect love casts out fear, because fear involves torment. But he who fears has not been made perfect in love.” 1 John 4:18 (NKJV)
“Then God’s wonderful peace that transcends human understanding, will make the answers known to you through Jesus Christ.” Philippians 4:7 (TPT)
I was born again in May of 2006. Upon regeneration, my spirit was made perfect, but my soul was a mess. Almost immediately, I began experiencing lots of spiritual warfare. The warfare was very intense, and I did not have a support team that was able to help me with that kind of battle. I was not equipped to deal with it, and I had not heard of Katie Souza Ministries or met Katie Souza and her team. I attended my local church where I received the Lord as my Savior, but they too were not equipped to help me, so they soon “indirectly” asked me to leave the church. I was devastated and hurt…
It was a difficult season, and I thought it would never end. I was afraid, and desperately looking for help. My husband was away for a season, so I was home alone. There were times that I was afraid to go home, because the presence of the enemy was everywhere – not only in my house, but everywhere I went. One weekend, I was driving to a conference and the enemy told me that I was going to get into a car accident. I opened my mouth, and with a loud voice said, “No, you can’t touch me, because I am protected by the blood of Jesus!” As I said that, a car going about 65 miles per hour came out of nowhere and almost hit me on the driver’s side! By the time I got to that conference, I was shaking and filled with fear. However, there I met a young couple and they invited me to a Friday evening weekly prayer meeting at their house. This couple had lots of books and the wife said the Lord told her to bless people with them. So I picked up a few books, and one of the books was “Changed in His Presence” by Sam Hinn.
The following weekend, I began reading that book and I could not put it down. It was small and easy to read, so I finished it that Sunday. After I finished the book, I turned the lights off, and went to sleep. That night I had a dream encounter with the Lord. In that dream, Jesus came and stood close to my nightstand, lowered his head, then whispered in my ear, “I love you.” As He said that, my whole body was filled with what I call the supernatural liquid love of God! It felt as if He had washed my entire body with His love. His presence was strong for a few minutes. After that, I felt the presence of the Lord leaving, and I cried out, “Please don’t go!” I had not experienced the love of the Lord like that before, nor since. At the end of that dream encounter with the Lord, all the fear and torment of that season was gone, and I was filled with the wonderful peace of God that transcends human understanding.
