Atrocities and Cultural Wars to Freedom

I have been alarmed prophetically, as the sounds of whirlwinds are fanning the flames within and burning me till there is none of me left!

I have been alarmed prophetically, as the sounds of whirlwinds are fanning the flames within and burning me till there is none of me left!

I see the swirling about, as our nation is fighting against herself from within!

A life and death Spiritual Civil War has ensued us and the warfare is rising to the occasion.

Satan wants division in our ranks through whatever means available, so that he can post pone timing.  He has run out of tricks, for the people can see right through him.

He is running in terror as his plans from decades past is coming undone!

The enemy’s plans have been scattered to the winds!  He is not omnipresent, so his plans are few and far between!  The entire demonic regiment is falling apart!

God has stirred up the prophets and prayer warriors and these will not relent!

They are like soldiers running through a troop and leap over the walls!

The enemy is falling back from territory he held for decades!  So now he is desperate to do anything to hinder or stop the Kingdom invasions!

In this great land of America, the devil tried character assignation and promotes his agenda to bring railing accusations against all of those whom God has sent!

To bring lasting change and healing to this great nation of America, we must not give up or let up in prayer and warfare!

The enemy thought he had the winning hand, but The LORD called him on it.

The devil laid out what was his winning hand that he planned for over six decades.  But in one moment, God laid out his wild card and out came Trump, and The LORD triumphed over him!

Many are sensing this warfare, especially those of us who are sensitive to what is happening.

Are we on The LORD’s side?

All of us must choose what side we are on. There is no gray area anymore!

The LORD has set us free from the law of sin and death.  It is in UNION that we find our freedom and liberty.  For in whom the son has set free is free indeed!

This war and battle is for the “Soul of This Nation.”  The battle is critical and we fight for freedom and it is just as real when our nation fought in the Civil War for this nation.

The Spiritual Warfare rages and it is crucial that we be found on God’s side of the War.

These Mid-Term Elections are critical!  I am seriously clear minded about this!  This conviction I have, was given to me by God!

This stance isn’t about Civil Rights, Racism, Bigotry, or many other Prejudices!

I am not saying there aren’t any major issues that need to be addressed in our nation.

With that said, God said in season these issues will be addressed and I will heal them!

There are many bigger issues at hand!  But prophetically we must look at the “bigger picture”.  What do we stand for, and whose side are we on?

I avoided politics, because I didn’t want to offend.  I still don’t want to offend!

I have prayed about my stance with President Trump, over and over.

I knew when I stepped up to the plate, that The Blacks, African Americans, and People of Color would be offended by me.

It was never my intent to offend, but I anticipated this and knew that when I declared my vote for Trump that many would desert from me.

However, it is better to trust God than man!  If everyone leaves, I will remain his in obedience.

I know there are many who will disagree, but God told me he wanted to bring awareness to His People, yes everyone, especially those who really don’t know me except from reading the words God gives me.

My Mother, Apostle, and Mentor in The LORD, is a Beautiful, Black, Woman of Color and she is also Jewish!  I was licensed and ordained through her ministry in February 1990.

ALL of those I ministered with during the years were ALL predominately Black, African American or people of Color.

For those who know me well, they have understood me for years!  I am so sorry that you didn’t know that about me.  I don’t even have a minuscule amount of prejudice in my whole body!

Those whom have known me on-line or off-line; those who have tested the words God gave me, how can you possibly think I was racist and that I am voting for a racist?

I am a woman of God and I love all of God’s people!

The LORD had me again, provoke a reaction to action!  Often The LORD will use a prophet to provoke a message to get to the heart issues.

When these react to that message, it brings with it a call to action!  God is all about getting to the heart of the matter to show us that we need Repentance.

God is very serious beloved!  God desires to bring health and healing to our own heart through Repentance.

He calls us for Repentance first.  Then He desires our families and then Repentance for the Nation!  And Ultimately to ALL the various Races of Peoples of the Earth.

Some “ONE” must stand in the gap for our family and nations!  Why can’t it be us?

We need National Repentance!

How can we have Repentance in our nation when we aren’t right with God about us?

God is getting down to the roots that are buried deep within us and getting down to the nitty gritty of the matter!

God’s desire is to free us from being held captive and hostage!

God has known of the issues that are there.  However, in this place in time right now, we were kept for such a time as this!

You have the potential within you, and the time is at hand!  We need to get serious with God about what is happening right now in our lives!!  This is God’s time line!

The LORD wants to heal our land of all the past suffering, and all of the Social Injustices done in our land and done to our people in America!

I especially identify with those injustices done to my Beloved Black, African American, and the People of Color; those to whom are my Sisters and Brothers in Christ!  I understand beloved of God!

“We” the Church of God in America, must come to identify with these, the beloved of God.

“WE” the nation of America must come together and Repent!

“WE” must turn away from our sin of racism, hatred, and bitterness and we must forgive, so the generational curses will be put to death once and for all through us!

This beloved, is for us and for our families and for our nation! It takes just one person to start the “Fire ball rolling.”

We are a worldwide Church of the Living God!  The LORD told me this issue must be addressed NOW, because the Times are so serious!

The time of The LORD’s favor is NOW!!!  Please Do NOT harden your heart!!

Don’t miss God in this!  He is very serious about bringing HIS church together as one!

We cannot stop all racism but “we” can start with us now!

Today, can be a new day beloved! We must repent of all the hatred, malice, racism and all of the bigotry that has been passed down to us from our blood line!

There are generational curses WE” must repent for in the church, through our family and us!

God cannot send revival, until we first repent for the sins of our fathers! We must turn back to God!

Revival begins with us first, then “we” as a family and nation can be reached for God!

God has the process to bring change; but we must repent personally, and repent as the body of Christ!

Do you want to see lasting change?  We must repent so God can send revival and heal our land and Nation!

We have the answer for ALL the world! His name is Jesus Christ the Messiah, the Jewish carpenter who walked the earth as the Son of Man who sold himself to pay for ALL our sins so HE could bring us together the way it should have been.

The church has many issues, but it has to begin with us and loving God’s people everywhere!

We cannot stop all racism, but we do have the ability to vote so our voice will be heard!

I am compelled with this message for the sake of this great nation!

The reason that God has moved on me politically is because he wants me to cry a loud to plead with this nation and plead to spare this nation!

God has shown me that this entire Mid-Term elections, are being fought by the Christians and the devil himself, through prayer and travail of our soul!

WHY???  Because this is for the survival of the “SOUL OF THIS NATION!!!”

We will either survive or we will die as a Christian nation on this election!

It is crucial that you seek God with your whole heart and repent!  We are in a fight for our Godly rights to live in this nation!

“Hear the word of The LORD, ye that tremble at his word; Your brethren that hated you, that cast you out for my name’s sake, said, Let The LORD be glorified: but he shall appear to your joy, and they shall be ashamed.  A voice of noise from the city, a voice from the temple, a voice of The LORD that rendered recompense to his enemies.  Before she travailed, she brought forth; before her pain came, she was delivered of a man child.  Who hath heard such a thing? who hath seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day?  For shall a nation be born at once? for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children,”   Isaiah 66:5-8 KJV.

America worldwide, are one of the newest nations!  Will we kill this relatively new baby of America?

Can this child be “reborn at once?”

Can this nation be reborn in a day?

Can this nation be born again?

For as soon as Zion travails she brings forth her children.

I received Revelation from God about President Trump, and I now support President Trump.

I stand for ALL our rights as Christians, giving us the freedom of religion, and everything that God is and has for us.

Our nation has been great because of The LORD, but our liberties have slowly been undermined.

There is a High Stakes Race unlike anything we have ever seen or will see again in the future!

We God-Fearing Americans face losing all the freedoms we enjoy as Christians.

People of God, I am looking prophetically at the enemy of God; Satan who has been undermining the foundation of this nation by at least six decades.  This nation was founded and built on God’s word.

What does this race mean to me?

The mid-term elections are the finishing line of the race to vote, secure, and keep our nation founded by God’s Word and built on freedom of religion!

But my decision in this race is all about protecting “the Soul of this Nation.”  This baby must be reborn and live to declare the works of God!

My convictions have everything to do with our freedom of religion and the foundation as one Nation under God, indivisible with liberty and justice for all!

What about rights?

I want you to see this prophetically; Look at the unborn children.  These whom their mother has the right to murder her own baby?

This nation has been held in the balance and found wanting.  Will we vote to maintain that this nation founded on God’s Word and securing liberty for all of us?

Or will we continue to murder innocents after the god Molech in the Bible?

Molech was an Ammonite god who demanded child sacrifice. The people would offer their firstborn by burning the child on a metal idol.

They believed that the Ammonite god would ensure financial prosperity. The children of God were strictly forbidden to this form of worship.  (Jeremiah 32:35, 2 Kings 223:10, Leviticus 18:21 KJV)

The Ammonites didn’t believe in the sanctity of life.  And in America today, the god Molech is alive and well!

We frown on the biblical example of child sacrifice that is spoken of in the Bible, but the abortion industry today is sacrificing babies for the idol of financial greed.

We are no different than what the people were doing in the Bible.  We have such moral depravity that if it wasn’t for God’s patience, grace and mercy we would have already been destroyed.

We could have fared as Sodom and Gomorrah but God is giving this nation another chance!

We cannot afford to miss this chance!  We must do our best to help people to wake up!

God-Fearing people wake up!  And stand up for the nation to return to The LORD!

What statement does our nation represent with those who want to take God out of everything?

Do you realize if we push God out and to erase our history as a God-fearing nation, don’t you see and realize what could happen to America?

We have offended God and he is angry about the blood of innocents that cries from the ground!

God has created us and blessed us as a nation!

But by our actions and beliefs do we say we don’t need him anymore?

How can we dare offend God?

We need to move away from the few who are causing such a ruckus in our regions and nation and become an activist for God and His Holy declarations and decrees!

Do we hold to our political leanings when they allow such atrocities?

The bottom line is; Do you want America to remain free and remain a God-fearing nation?

This election will determine our future and the future of our God-fearing nation.

Adversity + Intensity = Acceleration

The LORD says: “The enemy has kept this region in darkness but a great light shall shine like the mushroom denotation of a nuclear weapon!”


It has amazed me how desperate the enemy is in all out attacks!

He realizes he should have never roused me, and NOW will learn he should have left me alone!

You have to get mad at the devil, and not just mad!  You got to tell him like it is!  We had so many attacks and evidence of the warfare the past months and it was getting more intense and bazaar.

After many attacks, I got fed up!  I got mad at the devil when I saw my husband laying halfway on the road and in a ditch after a truck accident.  It did not matter, I got mad and I told the devil enough is enough! It did not matter that it was in front of police, EMTs and all who were there.

The man who brought Jeff home, as he was driving down our drive-way, instead of steering it down to our home, he lost control of the truck went through a fence and they said it was like being on ice, but no ice was there.

The truck had no brakes, couldn’t stop it or steer it.  IF that truck had been a yard or so closer it would have hit our propane tank and gone into the house where I was.

IMPORTANT:  That happened just beyond our property.  This is not the time to be on the edge of your boundaries.  If you are on boundaries, you better be hunkered down in alert status and able to discern what is going on to do warfare.

To see the truck and how everything happened was so twisted!  Yet we were being pressed into action with the devil.

The tables turned and I got very angry!  We must know who we are in Christ!  We are not weak beggarly soldiers!

The enemy tries to intimidate us make us feel less than who Christ died to make us free.  He wants you to talk yourself out of who you are!  When we doubt and fear we give place to the enemy.  The only authority the devil has in our lives is what we give him!

It is our mind that needs to shift from fear to acceleration, leaving the enemy in the dust!

I have never seen such bazaar attacks in all realms like the way they are now.  You know and can sense the devil’s desperation of losing ground.

These enemies, some of which have been assigned to you, have had orders from satan himself to hold and maintain the ground he gained!  However, with each attack, each blow and bomb he tries to detonate, he is losing the ground and the tables are turning around!!  He is losing because he cannot stop you!!  He is throwing everything he has at you at once!

IMPORTANT:  I have felt with each attack a surge in the spirit realm, God is sending in high ranking warrior angels!

As we see things happening in the natural, there is a great battle in the spirit realm.  These ranking warrior angels are sent to the heirs of salvation, fighting to make the way clear so that we may run with the message we carry!

I saw myself in a vision.  I was wearing a karate outfit and I was spinning in all sorts of ways, kicking, punching and slinging vipers in all directions.  I could see their fangs and poison was coming out of their fangs, yet the vipers could not make contact with the flesh.  There was no place for the devil!

I saw that cartoon character Riley Coyote and Roadrunner.  No matter what that old coyote did to catch Roadrunner, he never could master it.  Roadrunner would approach the traps and the bird would sick his tongue out and Beep beep and shift out of that trap in the making.  Nothing could trap that road runner.

We are much like that scenario when we run the race set before us.

God is going to shift you into low gear and rev you up and release you into thrust!  All that will be left are skid marks! It is time beloved, the rockets are nothing against MY Weapons of Warfare.

“Know ye not that they which run in a race run all, but one receiveth the prize?  So run, that ye may obtain.  And every man that striveth for the mastery is temperate in all things.  Now they do it to obtain a corruptible crown; but we an incorruptible.  I therefore so run, not as uncertainly; so fight I, not as one that beateth the air: but I keep under my body, and bring it into subjection: lest that by any means, when I have preached to others, I myself should be a castaway,”   1 Corinthians 9:24-27.

Where I now reside, there is a stigma in the Appalachian mountains.  People think we are ignorant and stupid.  They call us barefoot, pregnant, ridge runners and moonshiner’s.

“The enemy has kept this region in darkness but a great light shall shine like the mushroom denotation of a nuclear weapon!

I will break through the decades of bondage to religion and tradition in that region.  True revival shall come and I AM waking up My beloved that have been asleep and on the verge of being quenched.  I AM at the very door.

Oh Appalachia, oh Appalachia! Hear ME!  Yeah, you will be called ridge runners, and moonshiners for you shall shine like the moon and you shall run each ridge, hollow, each stream, each brook nothing shall stop MY beloved barefoot and pregnant ridge runners says your LORD!

It’s Harvest time!”

Experiencing the Shekinah Glory!

I don’t share this very much, however I was told and strongly led today by God to share this portion of my own testimony. I pray it blesses you!

I don’t share this very much, however I was told and strongly led today by God to share this portion of my own testimony.  I pray it blesses you!

During 1984, The LORD led me to a week day Bible Study at the base Military Chapel, led by one of the ministers wives.  There was a lady in ministry holding a three day conference on prayer.  The woman name was Evelyn Christenson.

A group of the women from the Bible Study decided to go.  I knew it was a non denominational gathering, and some of the people at the conference during praise, would lift their arms and hands in worship.  As I watched, some of those in our group were scoffing at those who expressed their emotion to the LORD, as they held up their arms to Him.  Those who scoffed, were out of line, in my thinking.  Who were they to judge someone else’s expression of worship?

During that conference, I learned about prayer.  I swallowed it all.  After that conference, I began to incorporate prayer into my daily routine.  I began to get up at 5:00 a.m. to pray and use the things I learned from the conference.  I began to sense the LORD and I became ravenous for the study of the Word.  Not long after this I met Rhonda.

Rhonda quickly became my friend and we would talk for hours about the LORD.  She would tell me stories about her mom and dad.  Rhonda’s parents were involved with the Assembly of God Church and called to be deliverance ministers.

Rhonda would tell me things that went on in their home as a child.  The conversations were fascinating, because I really didn’t think people dealt with demons in this day, nor did I know God was moving like she said.  You know, I still believed that old doctrine that I learned as a Baptist.

Rhonda and her family attended Military Chapel services with us, and on Sunday nights, they would go to a little Christian Servicemen’s Center downtown.  It was a mission set up by the Church of God out of Cleveland, Tennessee.  Rhonda would play the piano for the services and she was helping to get the ministry off the ground.

She would always talk to me about the Baptism of the Holy Ghost.  One Sunday she invited us to the Christian Servicemen’s Centers service.  As we went in, I noticed the shouting and hand clapping.  I thought cool, these folks are alive.

As the service progressed and the minister offered altar call, a woman came up to the front for prayer.  The minister laid his hand on her head, and she fell down on the hard concrete floor.  I had never been exposed to this before.

As I watched this, I wondered why she fell and why no one was trying to help her up!  She just laid there and then people started speaking in words I could not understand.  The way it sounded, made me feel like I was in India, with a southern accent.

Needless to say, I freaked!  We left and I was stunned at what I witnessed.  Rhonda called me to check on me, but I was still freaked out.

Rhonda shared with me, “Sherry, I can’t make you believe what happened and what you witnessed, but ask God if it is real.  Also, ask God if it is His will for you to be baptized in the Holy Spirit to show you the truth.  I also asked Him to manifest Himself to do whatever HE wants for me.”  Rhonda also suggested to fast a meal to seek the truth in Gods Word and to see what He says.

I thought about what she said a long time, and I got very serious about seeking Him, because I found scriptures that backed up everything she told me.  I determined to devote all of my free time to seeking God.

I had never fasted before for Spiritual reasons, but decided to do so since I found scriptural backing for that too.  I fasted two meals a day and devoted my time for seeking the truth about the Baptism of the Holy Ghost.  I read everything I could get my hands about the Baptism of Holy Ghost both in the Bible and some books I had received.

I started a three day fast.  On the first day I kept learning.  My prayer was, “LORD if this is for me, then manifest yourself to me because I want this if it’s your will.”

The second day came and I was feeling the hunger pains, but determined to get an answer, I kept pressing in.

The third day I was able to get the children down early for the night, and by this time, I was learning a lot about the Spirit and couldn’t get enough.  I was hungry for more.  Then the third night came.

I was in our living room laying on the couch, reading the Word and a book about the Baptism of the Spirit.  It was late at night, but I couldn’t sleep.  As I laid there on the couch, I felt a presence enter that room and I had never felt it before, and the only way I can describe it, was that it felt like a major storm was in my house.  I felt that inside my locked door house!

That presence entered every place in that house.  I got up turned on every light in the house and decided I would go to bed and read.  I knew something was in that room but with my limited experience and understanding, I didn’t comprehend yet!  I was hoping that what I felt was just my imagination.

I must say this here;  there was no storm outside that evening or any bad weather, only it was hot.

As I laid there, that presence came into my bedroom like rolling thunder.  I could feel it in the atmosphere!  However, I didn’t realize It was the awesome presence of GOD!

I kept my nose in the book about how to be baptized in the Holy Ghost.  Next thing I know, I hear with my ears a thunderous voice speak to me saying, “IT”S TIME!”

I sat straight up in bed and said “Time for What!”  I looked up and there was a white puffy cloud in my room!  It was visible to my eyes!  I did not know what the cloud was, or what it meant, so I freaked out.

I wondered what was happening to me and I called Rhonda and begged her to come over.  I told her over the phone what was happening and she was excited and said God wants to Baptize you in His Holy Ghost Fire and she said she would come.

The only way I can describe this presence, was that it felt like a massive thunder storm had come into my house!  You know, the awesome feel you get when a storm approaches?  That was in my house!

As I waited, freaked out, I prayed and my heart was pounding!  I kept my eyes closed and prayed then when the knock on the door came the visible cloud disappeared, but the presence did not leave.

When Rhonda came, she brought the associate pastors wife.  As soon as they walked into the property and house, they both said that the LORD was in this place.  I told them what happened and we all began to praise the LORD.

I had never lifted my arms to God before but as we praised God,  I lifted my arms for the very first time in praise and worship.  It felt like an electrical jolt touch my fingers.  It didn’t hurt, but it was like everything electrical could ever be and jolted me and it began to inch down my arms, and I started jerking like I was holding a live wire!

I was a bit scared even with the ladies there, and I asked God to please let me be totally filled like that Sunday night in that Christian Serviceman’s church where I had been invited to by Rhonda.  All of this was brand new to me.  I didn’t know God could be so real.  As I requested, the electrical surges began to subside and I was stunned.

The ladies stayed till early morning.  I didn’t want them to leave when they did.  I could sense the presence and it didn’t leave my house!  I could not sleep, eat or drink anything for three days after that.  I determined to receive whatever it was that God wanted me to have.  I did not know at that time what the cloud meant.

Later I found out it was the Shekinah Glory of God!  Watch how you pray!  I prayed for Him to manifest Himself to me……… and He did!

“And it came to pass, when the priests were come out of the holy place, that the cloud filled the house of the LORD, So that the priests could not stand to minister because of the cloud: for the glory of the LORD had filled the house of the LORD,”  1 Kings 8:10-11.

I knew that when I went to that Mission Church that Sunday night, I was going to receive the whole Baptism.  When I walked in the church, I went to the second row.  When the music started, I raised my hands like before at home and told God I wanted everything He had for me.

As I was praising God, that same presence was over my head and I felt my head and body leaning backwards, it was very hard for me to stand.  The effort was unbearable I finally leaned back in my chair.

The electrical current I felt before, slowly increased its way into my arms, this time, all the way to my toes.  I stood there shaking and jerking under the power of God.

I was so overwhelmed and overcome by the revelation of His power, that I was in shock.  The Pastor’s wife said she saw an aura of light around me that came out quite a distance from my body.  Whatever happened to me that day, ignited a fire that refused to be put out.  I believe I was Baptized by fire.

“John answered, saying unto them all, I indeed baptize you with water; but one mightier than I cometh, the latchet of whose shoes I am not worthy to unloose: he shall baptize you with the Holy Ghost and with fire,”   Luke 3:16.

Everything changed after that!  My husband thought I was nuts.  The Bible Study I went to in the morning was just handed over to me to conduct.  The Pastor’s wife urged me to lead it.  I don’t think she knew what she was asking for.  The Military Chapel services are very subdued, and here I come, a live wire.  Needless to say, the Bible study got fired up.  Women got saved, healed and filled.  I thought wow, this Holy Ghost thing is powerful.

Next, then the Pastor comes to me and tells me I can’t talk about controversial things.  At the time I didn’t know what controversial things were.  I pointed out to him that everything I did or said was in the Bible, but that didn’t seem to matter to him.

I went through a hard lesson with him and didn’t come through very godly.  My zeal was without knowledge and I got hurt.  Being new to this Holy Ghost stuff, I had a lot to learn.  So I was fired from that Bible study.  The women protested and wanted me back, but he said no.  So I went to the other church on Sunday nights at the Christian Servicemen’s Mission.

I cried a lot, because I couldn’t understand why, when people are changing, why would they want to hinder them from receiving and why would they want to stop the flow?

During this time, I had angelic visitations.  I saw one at the foot of my bed, standing over looking at me with a concerned look.  There was so much peace and love radiating from the angel, that my sadness was overcome.  I knew that God had sent angels to comfort me.

During this time, I asked the LORD why this happened and what was His purpose that He had for me.  One day in prayer, the LORD spoke “Prophet” to me.

I didn’t know what that was, nor what it meant.  I really didn’t think much about it for awhile.  But the LORD kept showing me scriptures about it.  I kept arguing, “I can’t do that!  I’m a woman!”  In the Baptist church, they don’t believe in women in ministry except for missionaries in other countries.

I continued praying and learning more in the Bible but it wasn’t until I began to see events before they happened that I got some clue what God meant.

One day Rhonda called me and shared a vision she received which pertained to me.  In the vision she saw a huge iceberg.  The LORD revealed the size of it above and beneath the water.  Rhonda said, “The LORD said you haven’t even touched the tip of the iceberg in the ministry He is calling you to.”

I continued to pray, seeking God early and incorporated fasting into my spiritual life.

Those times were so awesome.  I often think of them and how God manifested himself to me when I had NO idea what Holy Ghost power was nor did I know about the Shekinah Glory Cloud.

It was a major life event and changer and since then that presence has manifested in my life at various times.  However, I do sense He will be manifesting much more and in a greater degree in these end times.

With the lie of new age and cults, people are seeking supernatural power, and oh, the Church of Living God!

LISTEN!  He HAS the true power if we just seek Him with our whole hearts!

There are souls for His Kingdom in our reach and those who want and need to be discipled, and to be shepherded, equipped and released.

We need true REVIVAL!  Many of our fires have grown dim, and so many lost souls and those who need that TRUE POWER OF GOD!

God wants us to live in His presence and help others to know His presence so others can know the true move of God. God always backs up his WORD and that WORD is our final authority!

As I close this portion of my testimony about the Baptism of the Holy Ghost, there may be those who read this and it sparks the desire for more of God.  As you are reading this there are those who want everything God has for you.  Yes, seek Him with all your heart and ask Him for everything He has for you.  However, don’t be surprised when He shows up in a powerful way!

The Formation of Catch of the Day

By land or by sea, we are to be catchers of men aren’t we. For Jesus Christ came to set the captive free. He also came to destroy the works of the devil.

By land or by sea, we are to be catchers of men aren’t we.  For Jesus Christ came to set the captive free.

He also came to destroy the works of the devil.  Many cannot come to Christ until the devil is mastered and his works are destroyed.

“And he entered into one of the ships, which was Simon’s, and prayed him that he would thrust out a little from the land.  And he sat down, and taught the people out of the ship.  Now when he had left speaking, he said unto Simon, Launch out into the deep, and let down your nets for a draught.  And Simon answering said unto him, Master, we have toiled all the night, and have taken nothing: nevertheless at thy word I will let down the net. And when they had this done, they inclosed a great multitude of fishes: and their net brake.  And they beckoned unto their partners, which were in the other ship, that they should come and help them. And they came, and filled both the ships, so that they began to sink.  When Simon Peter saw it, he fell down at Jesus’ knees, saying,  “Depart from me; for I am a sinful man, O Lord.” For he was astonished, and all that were with him, at the draught of the fishes which they had taken: and so was also James, and John, the sons of Zebedee, which were partners with Simon.  And Jesus said unto Simon, “Fear not; from henceforth thou shalt catch men,””   Luke 5:3-10 KJV”


I saw myself in a big boat out in the deep and I had a large rod and reel.  I cast out all sorts of bait and once I felt a tug, I knew this one would be a big catch!  It took a long time to wear out the large fish, but once I did, I was able to bring the large catch to the boat.

The fish looked nothing like anything I ever seen.  One of its characteristics was that it was very swollen, like pregnant, however it looked beyond pregnant.

Once this heavy fish was raised up to weigh and cut open, suddenly fish came out of the opening of the big fish, and they hit the floor!  The fish were alive!  There were all sorts and sizes that came out of the big fish.  These fish that came out were many different types of fish.  We were amazed at the size of the original fish caught, and what was kept hidden within.

Just imagine, to see so many various types of fish that represented saints.  It kinda reminded me of Jonah when he was in the midst of the great fish alive.  Can you imagine being pregnant with so many souls?  This vision still boggles my mind.

Have you ever felt like you were bait that God was using to catch fish (the saints)?

Have you ever felt “like bait” to catch demonic spirits and deal with them by the blood of Jesus name?

We have been given all power and all authority over all the power of the enemy.  Whatever we bind on earth is bound in heaven and whatever we loose on earth is loosed in heaven.  We possess that power in Jesus name!

All through my spiritual life there have been times that God uses me as bait.  One time was this:

I was at a women’s conference to speak and so much happened that was amazingly wonderful!  We all were filled and enjoying the blessings of God.

Towards the end of the meeting, there were other speakers who prophesied over me and I ended up laying on the floor.  I was basking in the intoxicating presence of God on the floor; letting the Lord minister to me.

Suddenly, a woman who I did not know, nor had any idea what she was doing, came to me.  While I was in the intoxicating presence of the Holy Spirit on the floor, she bent down to my head and begin to speak curses and not in accordance to God’s Word.

This woman laid hands on me and I immediately knew what she said was saying was not of God.  No one stopped her touching me on the floor and we all learned a lot from that experience.  Especially me!

I remained on the floor, but did not receive anything she said.  For some reason, I knew it wasn’t over between her and I.  I assumed it would be taken care of between her and I during the end of the conference but it never happened.

I finally came to the conclusion that what I have with God, pulls in fish (souls) and it also draws demons out of people, to try and dispute what God had said.  I pretty much put that whole encounter on a shelf after that.  I had a knowing deep within that somewhere down the line I would have dealings with her again.

I was involved with three ministries in outreach and those who could, were invited to come and fast and pray for the city and also in preparation for a seven day tent revival that would be in another state.

For the fasting and prayer, we met in a old civil war historic facility.  The fast and prayer went on the full thirty days in preparation for revival.

One day while praying, I kept seeing a rod and reel with line and hook and I saw bait.  Then God began to tell me HE was going to send me as bait to draw the devil out of various situation’s.  Well, I was not in the best frame of mind after that.  I argued, thinking it was something the devil authored or something my own mind authored.

I shared it with several others that were with me who thought it was comical, but I couldn’t shake it.  I kept seeing myself like a worm, and instead of being hooked to the hook I just held on to the hook and sat there.

It seemed comical to others who knew, but it wasn’t comical to me! I saw my face on the worm and I prayed and prayed that it wouldn’t go away.  God even gave me scripture in Isaiah 41:14 KJV,

“Fear not, thou worm Jacob, and ye men of Israel; I will help thee, saith the LORD, and thy redeemer, the Holy One of Israel.”

The same day, my overseer came to see me and she shared with me that I needed to be prepared to go into another city the next day.  I would be going in her place to another women’s meeting.  As soon as she said it out of her mouth, I knew this was confirmation on the worm.

Oh my LORD!  I begged him not to allow this.  I spoke with my overseer many times that day and told her what the LORD revealed, but it didn’t change her mind.  I had to go in obedience to the LORD and His authority in my life.

I knew I was ready, but nervous due to knowing “I was like a worm on a hook.  BAIT!”  I knew I was being set up by God.

So off we went the next day, I myself and four others went with me to this women’s meeting.

Well, the main speaker wanted me to help handle the music up front where I did not want to be!  Being bait, I was thinking, I should sit in the back, but the person in charge told me to be up front.  All I could do was sit quietly and pray.

While we were in worship, I saw a couple more women come in, and I say this before God; one of them looked like a cobra.  Her headdress was in the shape of a cobra when they fan out.  Not only that, all the colors and markings spoke snake to me.

I told myself, oh NO!  Also what was worse, she was the exact woman who laid hands on me many months before, in that last conference.

Well, after worship, the woman of God ministered and I just stayed as quiet and prayerful as possible.  I thought after awhile, I was going to get out of being bait because it appeared the meeting was nearly over.

Then while everyone was praying, the woman of God came over to me and took me by my hand and walked me slowly around the front.  In my mind, I said, “This is it, I know it!”

The woman of God said all sorts of nice things about my ministry, but she knew another woman had a word for me.  Another woman did get up and prophesied a confirmed word and blessed me.  In my mind, I was saying here we go….

Then the woman of God continued walking me around by hand.  All of the sudden that cobra woman, started speaking ungodly words of poison and before I even thought to do anything, I WAS THERE!

I was in her face with my index finger pointing to her face telling her, “Touch not God’s anointed do his prophets no harm!”  I was so shocked that I moved so quick.  My head had to catch up with my Spirit!  While in front of the woman, she fell back immediately, shaking violently at the Word of the LORD!

The main speaker and woman of God told me, she said, “Sherry when you said and did that, I saw a legion of demons fall on their face at once.”

The part that really shocked me was, when I was standing with the woman of God who had my hand; suddenly I was in the cobra’s face!  So lightening fast!  It was like, I was there before I thought it.  A bit hard to explain, but I knew My body and Spirit were there before my thoughts were.

Well, I was just glad all was over for me.  I got everything ready to go and we left.  I understood later others tried to minister to the woman with the cobra headdress.  I knew my job was over, thank God!  Being bait for God can be a bit scary, but HE always shows up!

Does God still use me for bait?  Yes, at times.  He also uses me to catch souls on land and sea for the kingdom.  I know for a fact, if the HOLY SPIRIT does use me as bait again, HE will certainly harvest His “Catch Of The Day!  Amen?  So be it Lord!

“Behold, all they that were incensed against thee shall be ashamed and confounded: they shall be as nothing; and they that strive with thee shall perish.  Thou shalt seek them, and shalt not find them, even them that contended with thee: they that war against thee shall be as nothing, and as a thing of nought.  For I the LORD thy God will hold thy right hand, saying unto thee, ‘Fear not; I will help thee.  Fear not, thou worm Jacob, and ye men of Israel; I will help thee,’ saith the LORD, and thy redeemer, the Holy One of Israel.  Behold, I will make thee a new sharp threshing instrument having teeth: thou shalt thresh the mountains, and beat them small, and shalt make the hills as chaff.  Thou shalt fan them, and the wind shall carry them away, and the whirlwind shall scatter them: and thou shalt rejoice in the LORD, and shalt glory in the Holy One of Israel,”   Isaiah 41:11-16 KJV.
