PROPHETIC WORD FOR TODAY: Heaven shall bombard you with testimonies today.

It is shameful that many so-called believers are suffering as a result of wicked arrows. Many are not even aware of the fact that poisonous arrows are killing them gradually. Many weapons and arrows are used against people these days. Some people are choked on their beds, making it difficult for them to breathe.

Some others hear strange voices asking them to do strange things. The kind of sin they did not commit before they became born again would become easy for them, because strange voices urge them to do it. One day, a sister who was on her bed suddenly heard: “Daughter, rise up.” And, she got up naked at midnight. Her husband and the children were fast asleep. She passed through the sitting room and walked into the street.

However as she was going she suddenly heard another voice which said: “But the daughters of God do not run mad, go back home.” It was then she came to her senses and realised that she was on the street and she went back home. When she entered, she woke her husband and told him what happened and he could not believe that she had walked out naked, but she actually had done so.

Some people hear voices from the spirit world. Many just pray short prayers and sleep. You should be giving testimonies, if you know what some people face every day in their sleep. It could be the arrow of sudden depression. When such an arrow is fired at a happy person, the joy of the Lord will disappear from him suddenly. It could be a paralytic wind. We have received some people upon whom such winds blew who have come for deliverance. They could be in front of their houses and a gentle breeze would just blow and they would become paralysed until that evil wind comes out from their bodies, they remain paralysed.

It could be a cold chill at night. The room could be hot, all of a sudden, becomes cold and before you know it, the heat clears away. This is caused by the stone of the wicked. It could be heaviness in the head. It could be strange objects moving all over the body. These are arrows of the latter days. Somebody could be eating and, all of a sudden, he sees a strange item which could be a very big insect or a cockroach in his food.

Today’s passage shows how to escape the wicked arrows of the avenger of blood.

1. Holy Ghost fire, kill every serpent and scorpion targeted against my Israel, in the name of Jesus.
2. As a child of the Lion of Judah, I chase out serpents from my life, in the name of Jesus.
3. Every serpent and scorpion of poverty, die, in the name of Jesus.

1. Every poison of serpents and scorpions, come out of me, in the name of Jesus.
2. Let every crooked serpent be destroyed, in the name of Jesus.
3. My life, reject every serpent and scorpion, in the name of Jesus.
4. God, arise and grind foundational serpents to ashes, in Jesus’ name.
