No heads were spinning 360 degrees, and no one was shrieking or foaming at the mouth Monday night during God’s E.R. ministry sessions, which are held several times a week in Tulsa to cast demons out of people and then to help them stay free.
“We see a variety of (demonic) manifestations, but not for long,” said John Heim, a volunteer minister who is also a Tulsa air traffic controller.
“We don’t allow manifestations. They might raise their heads, but we take Continue reading →
[Editors Note: especially in Charismatic Protestant circles, Spirits or in the case of this article, Religious Spirits, are those entities simply known as demons in other branches of Christianity. For the uninitiated, the title above does not mean to rid oneself of religion and become an atheist but rather to exorcise those demons that prevent you from a full relationship with the Lord and his Holy Church or those demons that work through you to destroy the spirituality of others.]
How to recognize and get rid of religious spirits in your life
A family once brought a woman to our church on Steele Street and Blue Avenue in Jacksonville, Florida, who needed deliverance. We did not have deliverance teams in the church at that time; only my husband, Ardell, and I did the ministry.
This woman had come from a mental hospital in South Florida. As God is my witness, when I pulled up to the church, she was sitting in a car—and it literally was rocking. As she stepped out, the demons spoke through her.
“Kim cannot cast me out!” they shouted. “Benny Hinn cannot even cast me out! You have never met this demon!”
We took her downstairs to the basement of the church, where the woman paced back and forth, speaking in demonic voices and Continue reading →
First an artistic, devil-inspired barista took demonic to a whole new level with one lady’s latte—crafting a satanic symbol in a Catholic woman’s Starbucks drink. Now, a burger chain symbolized by its golden arches is making headlines for something nearly as sinister: a golden swastika depicted in butter on a chicken sandwich bun she bought from a McDonald’s drive-thru in Morehead City, North Carolina. McDonald’s fired the employee involved in the incident, but what does this incident—and the occult symbols in the Starbucks latte some months ago—really say? What’s going on in the spiritual realm? Clearly, it’s one more manifestation of Satan’s subtle—and increasingly not-so-subtle—works in a sinful world. Continue reading →
When one reviews the statistics that posit an increasing number of those that do not believe in anything to do with religion, a growing demographic of secular, atheistic individuals that deny the existence of the spiritual realm; one cannot help but find a conundrum at Continue reading →
Are you suffering from unexplainable, prolonged, repetitive or unusual health problems? Do you have constant assaults on your finances, physical health or family and relationships? Do you have addictive behavior or dependency? Do you feel that you will never have long-term loving relationships, never accomplish the dreams and goals in your heart, never have full physical health or abundance, that you always have to watch for the next shoe to drop, that you take one step forward and two steps back, that you are not worthy enough, not smart enough, not good enough? If you said yes to any of the above, you need to recognize where this negative input is coming from, and break the cycle of abuse. You are the one being abused, you are the one being targeted; and it is time to give you the tools to Continue reading →
I was fascinated when a friend, who was studying to be a priest, told me that the Catholic Church still actively performs exorcisms, but they do not advertise it in the US. I was curious if anyone could find details on how many are still performed, by any religions.

Anneliese Michel (21 September 1952 – 1 July 1976) was a German Catholic woman who was said to be possessed by demons and subsequently underwent an exorcism. The case has been labelled as a misidentification of mental illness, negligence, abuse, and religious hysteria. Three motion pictures, The Exorcism of Emily Rose, Requiem, and the Asylum film Anneliese: The Exorcist Tapes, are loosely based on Michel’s story. When she was sixteen, she suffered a severe convulsion and was diagnosed as having epilepsy. Soon, she began hallucinating while praying. In 1973, she suffered from depression and began to hear voices telling her that she was “damned” and would “rot in hell”. Continue reading →
