You Can’t Medicate a Demon

Lesson 2

When I first got out of prison, I began to have vertigo all the time. After eight months of dealing with the awful symptoms, I was tested and told that I had Lupus. This horrible and painful disease causes the body to attack itself, destroying everything in the body until it ultimately brings death.

The Lord spoke to me, “Don’t go back to the doctor. I’m going to heal you.” Within a week, I had a dream that I was walking among some tombstones. Upon awaking, the Lord gave me a scripture from Mark 5, “And he, (the demoniac), had his dwelling among the tombs.” Although I didn’t fully understand the revelation, within a few days, the Lord healed me! The power of God came upon me and He completely took away the vertigo and everything associated with Lupus.

I didn’t understand why I had gotten sick or why I was healed. And then, five or six years later, I began having similar symptoms again. I had vertigo and flu-like symptoms every other week. It was horrible. I would get a prescription for powerful antibiotics, but they wouldn’t help. At the end of the round of meds, I was sicker than when I started them. That’s when I learned that you can’t medicate a demon. (Just saying).
During the cycle of horror, I remember preaching with a temperature of 103°. At the end of the sermon, I couldn’t remember a word I had said. I was praying, “I hope I helped somebody. Please God HELP!”

During this time, I was seeking the Lord, but I couldn’t hear Him. My mind was full of noise – nonsensical, useless chatter that had nothing to do with what I was thinking, asking, or talking about. My daily prayer was for Him to show me who or what was filling my mind. I would pray and speak in tongues and then listen, but got nothing. Then, one day in the middle of this battle, I heard the Lord say, “Put it under torment.”

“All right,” I said. “Let’s give it a try.” I went into the bathroom and the old street kid came out. I let that thing have it! (You can take the girl off the street but you can’t take all the street out of the girl.) I threatened him with everything I could think of. “I’m going to dig your eyes out with a fork. I’m going to scoop your liver out with a spoon. I’m going to kick you in the “you know what” with my steel toed boots.”

At the end of my tirade, there was silence in my mind. And then, God once again gave me the scripture from Mark 5 about the demoniac that was dwelling among the tombs. Holy Spirit highlighted Legion running up to Jesus, throwing himself on his knees and saying, “…What have You to do with me, Jesus, Son of the Most High God? [What is there in common between us?] I solemnly implore you by God, do not begin to torment me!” Mark 5:7 (AMPC). He didn’t want to be tormented! That’s why he shut his stinking mouth when I tormented him!

The voices came back pretty quickly, but now I knew what I was dealing with! I soon discovered that we have things in our soul that allow spirits to torment us. Instead of screaming at the enemy, we need to get our inner man healed of everything we have in common with the devil and then he will have no power over us!

Jesus made this clear in John 14:30-31 (AMPC). He said, “…the prince (evil genius, ruler) of the world is coming. And he has no claim on Me. [He has nothing in common with Me; there is nothing in Me that belongs to him, and he has no power over Me.].” The devil will not have any power over you, when you have nothing in you, that’s in common with him.

When you are born again, you don’t have anything in your spirit man that’s in common with the devil, because inside of you is Christ, the hope of glory. Your spirit man is perfect and has nothing in common with Satan. But your soul is not the same. Your spirit man is saved, but your soul is in the process of receiving full salvation. The word salvation doesn’t just mean to receive eternal life. It also means healing. That Greek word is “sozo” meaning: “healing, to heal someone of a disease.”

You’ve got diseases in your soul. Remember in Philippians 2:12, we are told to walk out our salvation with fear and trembling. You don’t have to walk out your salvation in your spirit because it’s made perfect instantly, but you’ve got to walk out salvation in your soul, because your soul needs to be healed!

Rats, out of time again. Next time, I will show you that the spirit of Legion understands all about the soul!

Have you been blessed by this ministry? If so, consider Partnering with us or making a One Time Gift! I wish above all things that you may prosper and be in health, even as your soul prospers!

We so Blessed to progress and advance in the word of God and more constructive revelation by Holy Spirit as we read and listen to the word of God. All The Glory be unto the Most High God Amen Katie

    A year and a half out of prison. Twoyears, two months free from addiction. Two years living in Christ. Spirit and body healing beautifully then about two months ago major intestinal trouble. Bloating and vomiting after eating. Recently tested by colonoscopy and edoscopy…nothing wrong , body completely sound. Your message makes sense. I’m currently writing a book that I was Spirit inspired to write. Powerful testimony of transformation credited to God …and inspired by you, Katie. The more I write and closer to completion I’m getting, the worse the symptoms are. Satan doesn’t want this book published, I KNOW! I refuse to give him (it) power over me or anything. Thanks for your inspiration!

  • Itumeleng Mokoena

    I need clarity on the wounded soil

  • Debra

    Katie, you are such an inspiration thank you so much for stepping up and stepping out! God is healing and restoring and using you to show others the truth about our souls. I begged God bless you and thank you ! Best in him Debra Rogers

  • Marina

    I felt the article was not complete. I felt I was left hanging without a sound conclusion.

    can you make your articles with more depth. Thank you.

    btw, I got halfway through your soul healing book and found some of it helpful. (I am not a newbie chri)

    I applied the part where you said ask God to heighten the 5 senses. Not sure if they’re heightened enough though.

    • Katie Souza

      Hi Marina stayed turned there is more to come as this is a new series thank you.

  • Simone

    Hi Katie
    I really enjoy your teachings – Is there a dvd or a dvd series on “You Can’t Medicate a Demon

    • Katie Souza

      Yes stay tuned more to follow. 🙂

  • Marilyn Fitze

    Hi Katie,

    Found your article interesting. But have a question about page 4, “you’ve got diseases in your soul. Remember in Philippians 2:12, we are told to walk out our salvation with fear and trembling. You don’t have to walk out your salvation in your spirit because it’s made perfect instantly, but you’ve got to walk out salvation in your soul, because your soul needs to be healed!” You use the word “walk” out your salvation and the Bible uses work. Just wondering if you can clarify these words?

    • Katie Souza

      Hi Marilyn thanks for the question. Often when I use the word “walk” what I mean by it is what you find, say for instance, in Exodus 18:20 KJV where the same word “work” is used: “And thou shalt teach them ordinances and laws, and shalt shew them the way wherein they must walk, and the work that they must do.” The two words are often related and found together. We need to be involved in our sanctification. Working, walking and sometimes even running (Hebrews 12:1) love you, Katie

  • Pat orr

    @I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you.”
    Luke 10:19
    I am a bit confused.
    Why did you not just stomp on those demoniacs with your steel toed boots?

    • Katie Souza

      Stay tuned 🙂

    I read your article in Charisma News about Legion. I was diagnosed in 2016 at the age of 50 with Type 1 Diabetes. It’s been 2 1/2 years since then and boy has my life changed. It says in his words that “By his stripes, we were healed.” I have also had a lot of panic and anxiety attacks come on me and I know I’m being tormented with all this. I need help on speaking His Word and building my faith. What can I do?

    • Katie Souza

      Have you tried spending more time in worship? That is what I do when I’m being tormented and need help on speaking His Word and building my faith 🙂

      • De

        No I haven’t but I will. Thanks for replying back.

  • Diane Becker

    Katie… I have been going thru a strange type of attack that was different than anything I have ever known. I have this sick feeling inside of me all of the time. I have no energy. I took my daughter in several years ago. Then all fell apart. I wanted to help her. She would get angry and beat me up. I have a permanent injury in my left knee from one of her outbursts of hurting me. She got very angry with me a few weeks ago (because I tried to communicate that she hurt me when she did these things to me)… and she has left my life completely and won’t have anything to do with me. I am very heartbroken. As a matter of fact almost all of my friends have left. I ask God what I do that people don’t like me. I was an intercesser and had prophetic gifting. I still record dreams and revelations. I feel unloved… and I like love people. I lost my dog a few years ago and it was so devastating I really haven’t gotten over it. Sounds very stupid but true. I found this sight somehow and here I am pouring my heart out. I feel hopeless like giving up no fight left in me. Thanku for listening.

    Katie, I was instantly delivered from Xanax just by reading the title of this article. I didn’t even have to read the article, just the title alone speaks volumes. I took the xanax out of my purse and have not taken one since. If I am having anxiety, I just call on Jesus’s dunamis power to help me.
