Every testimony of deliverance from bondage and evil, acts of miraculous provision, healing and divine breakthroughs ultimately points to the greatness and glory of God and should be attested to that effect.
O give thanks unto the Lord, for he is good: for his mercy endureth for ever. 2 Let the redeemed of the Lord say so, whom he hath redeemed from the hand of the enemy;
Every time the LORD delivers, heals and saves the Devil, his cohorts, his kingdom and powers are openly put to shame. Once The LORD has delivered nobody and there is no power that can undo the marvellous works of God.
While every testimony yields glory to God, featured testimonies are here to inspire us to believe in the integrity of God, His outstanding and remarkable power in demonstration; and His benevolence in abundantly delivering and saving anyone whose confidence, hope and trust is firmly placed and rooted in Him.

It was a bright sunny day, and my twin sister and I decided to go for a walk together. We often went for long walks just get away from life's ups and downs. As, we were speaking to one another, in a split second and a blink of an eye, the blazing sun completely vanished, and the sky became pitch black. I looked up and nothing could prepare me for what I saw next.
I witnessed a shower of glittering stars falling upon the earth. In despair, I quickly turned to my sister, and she was absolutely nowhere to be found. There I was, spinning quickly in circles, hoping to catch a glimpse of my mirror like image. Monica was gone!
Severe weather began to develop, and the wind swept my hair across my face as I began to run home. Beads of sweat were rolling down my skin because I could even taste the salt in my mouth. All I wanted to do was find my dear sister, and my best friend.
As I ran, I could hear screams from others crying out for their loved ones which had apparently disappeared too.
It seemed like I would never get home, but I finally reached the front door of my parent's home. I was expecting to see my sister on the other side of the door once I opened it, but the only people I saw were my parents. They were sitting on the dining room table completely oblivious to what had come upon the world. They had no response when I asked them about Monica. In fact, they seemed like they were in some kind of trance; like they were dead, but alive. In desperation, I began running through the house swinging each bedroom door open, to find nothing but an empty room. I soon believed I would probably never see my sister again.
I began contemplating this whole thing was just one big horrific nightmare. I began to brutally pinch my arms in hopes to wake up. "Wake up; I thought...this is just a bad dream...wake up!!!!" I told myself that if I was to walk outside, I would see the sun again and realize I was only dreaming, so I ran back outside and what I saw were neighbors also looking for their loved ones...from babies to teenagers to elderly...some of them were missing! Then I heard a smashing crackling thunder coming from above.
I did not want to move my entire head up because I was so terrified, so I only rolled my eyes to look above and when I did, I saw thick puffy dark clouds begin to separate. I don't know why I said this, but I said, "Thank you God, you are giving me a second chance, it is the sun again." My hope quickly turned to despair because when the clouds did come apart, I felt what I saw was the moon saturated in blood. The dread caused me to faint. When I came to, I saw the white ceiling of my bedroom.
I soon realized I was only dreaming. I had never had such a terrible nightmare in my life.
I quickly ran into my sister's room and there she was sleeping so peacefully. I woke her up and told her all about my frightening dream. She quickly began to tell me that my dream was in the bible, and it would become a living reality if I would not accept Jesus as my Lord and personal Savior. How could she say that my dream was in the bible, how could I dream something like this if I had never even read the bible before? This is something I never wanted to do as I just happened to be a Satanist.
Yes, I worshipped the devil.
I had my own satanic bible, which I would read diligently. I would pray to the devil, and mess with things such as the Ouija board and dabbled in astral projection, where was enabled to come out of my body. When I did this, people could not see me, but I could surely see them and other demonic forces. I would slice myself with razors, draw bloody pentagrams and curse people with them. I thoroughly enjoyed the power I thought I had as a Satanist.
Monica had become one of those born again believers years ago and she knew her bible pretty well, so the first thing she did was quote the following scriptures to me.
"I watched as he opened the sixth seal. There was a great earthquake. The sun turned black like sackcloth made of goat hair, the whole moon turned blood red, and the stars in the sky fell to the earth, as late fig drop from a fig tree when shaken by a strong wind. The sky receded like a scroll, rolling up, and every mountain and island was removed from its place." Revelation 6:12-14
"Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed- in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet." 1Corinthians 15:51-52
This is how my dream happened in a blink of an eye. I began to ask her to show me about her disappearance. She said,
"I tell you on that night two people will be in one bed; one will be taken and the other left. Two women will be grinding grain together; one will be taken and the other left. Where there is a dead body, there the vultures will gather." Luke 17:34-37
"The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon to blood before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord." Acts 2:20
She began to tell me the reason she disappeared was because she had accepted Jesus as her personal Lord and Savior.
Romans 10:9 "If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved."
Monica told me that the Lord had raptured His people from the earth, and I was left behind. She told me that I was on my way to hell if I did not repent. I did what any sane person would do; I swallowed my pride, immediately renounce my satanic past, and asked Jesus into my heart.
It was not long after I did this that Lord Jesus Christ and I began to have sweet fellowship together, and He became so real to me in more ways than one. The Lord and I had a relationship. It was not about religion! About two years after I had this dream, I gathered up enough courage to ask Him. I asked the Lord why He scared me in this dream of all things.
As I opened up my bible He immediately led me to this scripture "In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls on men. As they slumber in their beds, he will speak in their ears to terrify them with warnings to turn man from wrongdoing, to keep him from his pride, and to preserve his soul from the pit." Job 33:15-18
I truly was given a second chance, and I thank Him everyday for giving me this dream. I would be burning in Hell right now if I had died a Satanist. What some of you don't even realize though is that if you are not a child of God you are, indeed, a child of the devil... whether you call yourself a Satanist or not. You are either for or against HIM.
The bible states this clearly. Will this dream become reality for you some day? The Lord says in his Word that you are to choose this day whom you will serve. Tomorrow may never come. You could die tonight and it will it be too late? If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved Romans 10:9.
Invite Him in your life and heart today. When you do, your name will be written in the Lambs Book of Life. Amen!
NOTE: The use of adjectives were many in my testimony because this vision the Lord gave me was so "real" that I wanted the reader to experience what I did in the vision.

Since being a teenager my mother and I began to visit Mediums, Psychics, Crystal Ball and Tarot Card readers. We went to people's houses for 'sittings' to contact the dead and receive messages. We began to attend audiences where one of our favourite Mediums would be performing. Mum wasn't as enthralled as I was, and on hearing several Mediums saying to me - 'You can do what I am doing' - it encourages you to develop your 'gift'.
What I was most attracted to was the Tarot Cards. I was more than eager to go out and buy a pack, along with some instruction books.
Then I began to seek out classes where I could learn properly. I was taught to 'feel' the deck which I was attracted to, and meditate upon them. I bought different decks of cards to work with. I loved them.
I quickly learnt how to read them, and started reading for family and friends, they all thought I was good at it, and came back for more. I even began to keep a record of their readings on my computer, so that I could print it out for them to look back on when predicted events happened in their lives. People loved it.
So I began to go to development circles. Concentrate on 'tuning into oneself' and picking up any visions we might receive. This was then shared with the group and discussed. We were given exercises to do to develop our abilities, and the leading Medium would then make contact and deliver messages to individuals.
I became enthralled, and went out and bought heaps of different books on self development, meditations, charkra reading, channelling, crystals . . . . You name it - I bought it! I studied them earnestly, eager to develop.
We began to have 'sittings' at our house, where we would invite several friends or family members to participate in the group. And we would tape record our sittings in order to look back on them as predicted events unfolded. We were hooked!
I also began visiting the local Spiritualist church where Clairaudience is carried out, delivering messages from the dead, or having private sittings.
I was particularly attracted to the Tarot Cards, and very much took to developing this 'gift' and wanted to know all there was to know about them. So this was the line of the Occult which I most focused upon.
We thought it was fine as no harm came to us whatsoever, and everyone who took part in such activities seemed to come to no harm at all, so we continued .
In 2006 I discovered for myself how dangerous the Occult was when I tried to turn away from it. I was invited on an Alpha course to learn about Christianity. This was the very beginning of me turning away from the Occult . . . . . .
There were some strange things which started to happen at that time. I was told to pray and ask Jesus into my life, and things did settle down.
I thought any strange happenings were over with and that I was free from the Occult. . . . .
Two years later, in the Spring of 2008 I became the member of a Methodist church, and thought it was only right that I get rid of my Tarot Cards, as I was now a Christian, and decided to give 100% to the God who showed me that he IS pure love itself. . . . .
I hadn't read the Tarot Cards for other people for a few years, but was aware I still had them at the back of a cupboard.
As far as I was concerned I had stopped dabbling in the Occult as I had stopped going to classes, circles, visiting Mediums, etc. I only occasionally got the cards out just to read for myself, maybe once a year or so. I also still had all the books I'd bought, I didn't realise how VITAL it was that I get rid of everything which tied me to the Occult.
It was after getting rid of them that there were several strange happenings, one of these happenings was the presence of a spirit, between May and August. I realised I had actually been in touch with 'something', as I started to feel a presence which kept coming to me, very often, almost weekly. It came at any time, out shopping, at work, sitting on a bus, when I was fully awake. I guess it was because I had finally broken the connection, and it was trying to keep it. I got used to it being around, I wasn't frightened at all. I couldn't determine who it was, just a definite 'energy', in physical terms I guess I could describe it as being aware of a small area of 'fog'. Although it is impossible to physically describe the non physical.
There was even a time when it came whilst I was reading my bible at home, at this point I still didn't realise it was evil, and I actually welcomed it, wondering who it was, as it wasn't giving me any identity. My welcome made it become more vibrant.
I could feel an increase in its 'vibration.'
It sometimes came to me whilst I was at work. I told the cook about it, and she was convinced I must have a guardian angel watching over me because it wasn't anything frightening.
One time I was in a client's room (I worked in a care home) and while she was chatting to me I felt it's presence to be out in the corridor. I didn't tell the old dear as I didn't want to frighten her.
At first its presence made me feel calm and I became familiar with it's 'vibration'. As the weeks went by, it became stronger, and in its presence I could feel it's energy blending more with mine, my body felt quite 'heavy', I begun to feel incredibly nauseous when it was around and my mind felt 'spaced out'.
The final time was the strongest, in August. I was in the Pentecostal church and it was Holy Communion, I was in the kitchen filling up the thimbles for the Communion. I felt its presence very strongly, even though the place was busy, people talking to me, distractions, I knew 'something' was there and nobody else seemed aware of it.
It seemed to strongly 'touch' my mind, the very point at which you think was strongly emphasied. As I walked to the front of the church to place the Communion thimbles at the table, there was the familiar feeling of it blending with me. I sat down, and this was more than being calm - I could hardly move out of the chair - my body was so very heavy. My mind was extremely 'spacey'. Someone came to ask me to serve cups of tea after the service, I immediately answered "I'd love to". (Normally I would have hesitated as I am quite a shy person). But when I answered it felt like it wasn't quite me controlling my voice, the words just came, although I was aware that it still sounded like me. As the service began and everyone started to sing, the presence quickly faded. I realised afterwards this was the beginnings of something wanting to take possession of my faculties.
Over the next few weeks, I became frightened and very upset, not knowing when it was going to come back, obviously wondering how I could get rid of it. I rang my church Minister and made an appointment to see him, needing help and not knowing what to do.
But I days later I cancelled the appointment as it seems that it had decided to leave me alone, and I haven't felt it since - thank goodness! I can only assume it was because I was in the presence of God and it fled. What more proof do we need of Jesus saving us!! Jesus said, "For where two or three come together in my name, there I am with them" - (Mathew 18:20). There was a whole congregation there singing to him! There was definitely something in the church that day which got rid of this spirit. That is absolutely AMAZING! Spirits flee in his presence! IT HAS HAPPENED. AMAZING!
Since turning to Christianity there have been times when I've felt the presence of something far more grand and powerful than any 'lower' spirit, lacking the power of anything Godly which has the ability to fill a room with depth, sensitivity and absolute pure, perfect love.
I now realise what was beginning to happen to me, and how much worse it could have been, and I realise there are also people who have been into the Occult who have experienced far worse than I did. People who are into Occult practices and think it is safe are very nice, well meaning people, but are deceived victims of Satan. You think you are fine, that there's nothing to worry about . . . . until you try to turn away from it. Then Satan's demons will show their true colours and try to keep a hold you're your soul. These spirits are demonic, and want your life. It is not just the truth for me, I am not just one person who has had bad experiences, it is the truth for everyone.
Anyone who becomes involved in Occult practices WILL have supernatural encounters. You called them up! You've called Satan! He will come. It shows how spirit entities have the ability to reveal or conceal themselves, to whoever they choose, wherever they choose, whatever you're doing, whoever you're with, at whatever time they choose. It is dangerous!
I knew Christianity was what I'd been looking for all my life. Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth and the life", this struck a chord with me instantly, how fantastic! I am now a member of a Methodist and a Pentecostal church. I have absolutely no doubt whatsoever of the existence of God and totally accept our Lord Jesus Christ as our only hope and saviour from demonic spirits. God has proved to me he exists, that he is more powerful than evil and that evil spirits flee from him. I want nothing but God in every part of my life, to devote my life to God, I live every second of every day for him, and always will.
God is the protector of souls.
Praising him here glorifies him in the heavenly realms.

Dear Pastor Isaac
I hope you and your prayer team are well, I am writing this to inform you that I am back from my trip and I would like to share with you the wonders of God. Remember when I first contacted you I had multiple problems that I couldn't bear.
If may list them:
1. spirit husbands- I used to be troubled by spirit husband now its in the past history.
2. rejection - where ever I went I was rejected by people (co workers, relatives, supervisors, lecturers and even strangers) that is now in the past history I now live a different and happy life with people, even my relatives who appeared to hate me surprise me with phone calls and visitation, these are things I was not used to and due to that I lived a very withdrawn life, because I feared people.
3. misfortune - some times people attacked me for wrongs that were done by other people and that is no longer happening.
4. Financial oppression resulting in multiple debts - I got in to serious debts due to the crazy illness that I had and other mishaps and several times I tried to approach banks for financial assistance and they all rejected without valid reasons, I tried my organization and all in vain
-I had an undeveloped farm that I could develop due to financial crisis.
-I had a business plot that I couldn't develop because of financial crisis and it was due for repossession form the ministry of lands.
-I had set a house foundation in 2007 and managed to take it to the window level but stopped there because of lack of finances.
Now listen to the wonders of God that left me without words in the month of august 2009. One lady walks in to my office and invites me to her bank to apply for a loan and I told her that I am tired of applying for a loan I have been rejected several times by my own bank and I don't believe that they can consider my request because I am not banking with them. That was 2 days before I started my trip, the lady was so persuasive and I did apply for the loan, two days after submitting my application I received a message in my phone informing me that the loan has been approved, I couldn't believe it but then I asked myself why I was praying and I answered myself "this is the deliverance that I have been asking from God why should I have doubt."
-Now the interesting thing is with all that money settled the hospital bills, I am now a debt free woman except for this single loan that I can manage with my salary.
- I developed my 20 hectares farm with the intention of starting vegetable and fruit business to supply the local shops, and still on the farm issues some strange things happened, that I strongly believed that God truly wanted me to realize that he has won the battle for me. When you run a farm business where there is no river one is required to but a water tank of 10000 litters and the tanks are so expensive and I felt decided to postpone that step for the future, I was busy buying other things for the farm when one old lady noticed that she approached me and said "I am selling my a farm tank at a reasonable price", I tried to resist thinking that she is talking of worn out thing but to clear my doubts I went to see it and to my surprise it was still new and she offered me at P1800.00 I couldn't believe such a blessing because the price for that starts at P3500.00 - P5000.00, again still on the farm issue one man offered to clear the trees off my farm at P4500.00, I followed him several days until I gave up and when I got frustrated I knelt down and asked God to take control and guess what the following day one man came and offered to clear it at P1500.00 and I was so surprised at how God is handling my affairs.
-I managed to develop the other business plot even though it is at still at an early stage, I intend to start a bed and breakfast in it, I am happy that with some little developments that I made it will no longer be repossessed.
- The house that was stagnant in 2007 is now progressing; the wall structure is complete now and the roofing is due next week
5. Nightmares - since I started warfare prayers I stopped having nightmares.
6. pending masters award - when other students documents were returned last year for correction mine did not come on time and I failed to graduate, I received it after graduation and had to wait for this year, I resubmitted and as usual other student documents were returned and I was told that mine is not there, I fasted and prayed seriously over the last two weeks and guess what three days ago I was called to collect my document and the examiner requested me to do minor edits and I will be set for graduation.
7. Unexplainable loss of funds for my CRA course- The money that sent in February 09 for CRA course sort of disappeared because the institute couldn't track it, lost hope and gave up but something told me that if I can include that as a special prayer during my warfare prayers God will hear me and indeed he heard me, I was supposed to have enrolled in February but I enrolled in June and completed in August as we speak I received my certificate yesterday as a qualified clinical research monitor.
Pastor and fellow prayer warriors one night my whole conversation with you flooded my mind with all the things that I asked you to pry for and all the things that I have been praying for and I cried and endless cry not because I was hurt I was so thankful for the Lord has heard my prayer and I just remembered now easily God set my eyes on your website when I was simply looking for the topic of spirit husbands because a friend of mine talked about spirit husbands when I told her about my multiple problems. Isn't our God wonderful? The only problem that is still pending is that on my prospective husband whom I believe God is still handling I am aware that GOD's timing is not my timing and I will prayerfully be waiting and I believe you will continue praying for me. My 6th deliverance prayer is due on the 2nd and I am willing to continue I can't say I am stopping because all my problems have been solved.
Thanks and GOD BLESS YOU ALL
