VISION 10/16/12 4DURHAM365/24/7 (RE: PRAYER FOR DURHAM, SURROUNDING AREAS AND NC)
I was awakened by violent angry tormenting screams coming from a huge being with several arms. Within the being was Satan (as if I would not recognize him). The being was totally on fire and fire came from him. He reached out at me in a threatening manner and came at me with sword-like arms slicing the air in front of me with fire. The Holy Spirit instructed me to watch but not respond. I just stood watching. I was unafraid and emotionless.
He spoke in a cruel growling way, "It's YOU again, you and your big ideas. Who do you think you are! Do you really think that I would let YOU, YOU destroy the plans that I have for THAT City or any other YOU.... (then came the slurs hurled so furiously that I could only pick up on one or two but I knew that each word was targeted and meant as a final blow for me. These were words that I had heard in the spirit before, spoken by those who dislike me, hate me, wish I were dead or would just disappear. All these familiar words, gathered and held from the day that I was born for this moment in time.
Who do you think YOU ARE!!! He started naming names of "prominent Christian leaders" and began to laugh, mocking them. He began to hurl flames again and to scream louder, and louder and louder. He looked up and directed his eyes above me, took a deep breath, fire came out of his mouth and he used all of each breath to scream each word, "FAITHLESS, FEARFUL, SELFISH, RELIGIOUS, ENTERTAINMENT SEEKING, PRAYER-LESS SO-CALLED SAINTS..." His attention turned back to me and said LOOK! That's the way they WANT IT!!!!!!! NOW YOU...(used the names of Christian heroes from the bible as if I were trying to be one of them) "child of the Most High God...I will DESTROY YOU before you take ANY OF MY TERRITORY AND....
He suddenly became a vapor of dust. I felt Jesus on my right and leaned back on Him. He enveloped me in His arms and whispered "disarmed...transferred...go forth as a mighty army" My response "Yes Lord"
DISARMED: Colossians 2:13 [God] disarmed the principalities and powers that were ranged against us and made a bold display and public example of them, in triumphing over them in Him and in it [the cross].
TRANSFERRED: Colossians 1:13 [The Father] has delivered and drawn us to Himself out of the control and the dominion of darkness and has transferred us into the kingdom of the Son of His love,
As I prayed and talked to the Lord about what He had shown me, I had another Vision. Crowds of Christians in different places going their own way. They were doing day to day things. The Holy Spirit was grieved because His people were so distracted and unconcerned. I began to feel His Grief which was far too great for me to bear. I quickly said, "I understand and I am so sorry!" I could not stop crying. The Lord said that it was His expectation that every Christian would pray and not leave it up to someone else or a select few. It was untrue that prayer was only an "anointing or calling" of some.
As I was getting myself together I saw specific people, leaders of churches, organizations, in state and local government and others in Durham and beyond. The Holy Spirit showed me challenges within their personal lives and families. Some of our leaders are heart broken, facing financial difficulties, marriage problems, problems with their children, physical challenges..."Yes, the heart of the king is in My Hand and I turn it...it would be easier for them to turn if their burdens were lifted through your (collective) prayers", the Lord said.
