“For God does speak—now one way, now another—though no one perceives it. In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls on people as they slumber in their beds, he may speak in their ears and terrify them with warnings, to turn them from wrongdoing and keep them from pride, to preserve them from the pit, their lives from perishing by the sword.” Job 33:14-18 (NIV)
God communicates to us through His Word and using the road map of dreams and visions. When there are wounds in our soul created by sin, there are demonic powers attached to those wounds. God will show us, through a dream or vision, how to get those wounds healed to preserve our souls from the pit and from the torment that comes from demonic powers. He will take us down a specific road of healing by showing us things in our dreams and visions. Once we begin to unpack what He shows us, we can move into that revelation and then execute it to see signs, wonders, and miracles in the healing of our soul.
Once, I was in Seattle and I developed a severe sore throat, the kind that felt like if you said one more word you might die. I was staying in a wonderful house, but my bedroom was very cold. Also, there was an air conditioning unit in the window that was letting in cold air. Whenever I become sick quickly, I am suspicious that there is something in my soul that’s in common with demonic powers. Jesus said, “The prince of this world is coming but there is nothing in Me that is in common with him, so he has no power over Me.” John 14:30 (AMPC). I didn’t want to use my own human reasoning to figure it out. I knew God would show me through my dreams and visions.
One of the very first meetings we did was in a recovery house with ex-coke addicts. On the streets I was a dope user and dealer; my drug of choice was speed. I did do some coke, but I really hated it and only used it if I didn’t have anything else. I had already gotten major healing of wounds in my soul that were associated with my speed use, but I hadn’t really worked on any wounds from the sin of using cocaine.
On our way to the meeting I began feeling resistance and a lot of chatter in my mind. I was beginning to get sick. The closer we got to this meeting the thicker the resistance in the spirit realm became. My team members and I were praying fiercely during the car ride. We sat in the back seat and prayed in tongues, trying to break the resistance so I could go up and speak. I was able to speak and release the word, but I woke up the next day with a fiercely sore throat. By end of the day, every word felt like a knife stab. That night I asked God to show me in my dreams or with a vision what was allowing this to happen.
In my dream was a big ole’ pile of coke! I had a wound in my soul that had come from the sin of using cocaine and the demons that I had in common with the region were attacking me. In this dream I had xylitol, which is a natural sweetener and I was using it to cut the coke. I had a couple of peanut butter cookies that I threw into the mix also! Now, God uses symbols to tell us what things mean. I was on a 21 day fast so I was only eating vegetables. So, when I woke up, I knew peanut butter meant protein. I knew that God was giving me another piece of the puzzle to solve my problem. He was telling me that the 21 day fast without any protein had caused my immune system to drop and demonic powers were able to afflict me because I had a wound in my soul. I needed to sweeten my 21 day fast with peanut butter (because I was sweetening the coke with xylitol and a peanut butter cookie).
So what did I do? I did the three steps we have already spoken of – I first dealt with the wound in my soul. I repented from the sin of using coke and I applied the blood of Christ to that sin. I spent time focusing, just like the woman with the issue of blood. Then I began to apply glory and light to the wounds on my soul, and like that woman, I said to myself, “If I just touch the hem of His robe, glory and light will be loosed on the wounds in my soul that are involved with using cocaine.” I pressed into it by staying focused and persistent. Then, within six minutes, that wound was healed!
Last, I commanded the demonic that was making me sick to go (and it left). I added some protein to my meal, my team bought me a small heater, and by the next night I was completely healed! Big Love, Katie
