I just got off the phone with a friend I trust. He told me a bizarre story, but he’s dead serious and needs your prayers. His brother-in-law, a famous entertainer, is being threatened by a
close family member. This family member called my friend last night and said
the following to him:
“I’ve been torturing and killing small animals for a long
time. It always has given me a rush when I’ve done it. Well, I don’t get
off on that anymore, and I feel like I’ve got to take it to another
level. I’m tired of living vicariously through the evening news and school
shootings and need to start my life for real.”
My friend said, “This is crazy. What are you talking
“I know that I need to torture and kill humans. The
prettier the family the better. I’m going to kill your
sister and her husband and their kids. I’ve
put together an arsenal. And I’ve told my doctor about what I’m going to do.”
“What did he say?”
“He asked if I’d done anything to act on this impulse yet and I said, ‘no,’ and he said, ‘Well then there’s nothing to worry about right
My friend said that throughout the conversation, this man’s voice was coldly rational. He doesn’t doubt his intent to murder his sister’s family. He requests prayer. He said this family member
lives in a remote mountainous area in a shack and, since he hasn’t done anything yet, the police don’t offer any real protection.
I said, “Have you ever confronted a possessed person?”
He said, “No.”
I said, “Then we need to get you some real prayer
backing.” I have experienced enough of the demonic on the mission field
to know it is real. I have written about it in past blogs, wanting to
awaken you, my blog readers, to the reality of the spiritual battle we’re in
and the authority you’ve been given as a follower of Jesus.
Now I’d like
to give you an opportunity to pray specifically for this family and this life
and death spiritual struggle. This is a very credible friend who I
absolutely trust. This is a real situation happening today. If you
would like to pray for this family, please put your first name and email
address below in the comment section. Your email address will be visible only
to me. I will then send you regular email updates from my friend to help
you pray more specifically.
If you are wanting to grow in your authority in Christ or you
simply are moved by compassion, please join us in forming a prayer shield
around this family.

Do not sit still, we will also pray. Go, if I find that you don’t I’ll be compelled to report it myself.
In Yeshua, Rivkah

AND call the local community mental health people for intervention. ?? This is a serious cry for help. In my state, there are ‘Help Lines’ and emergency interventions available. The fact that it’s a family member makes the cry all the more desperate and the help more available. If this person called the newspaper or the high school, the police would be all over it. As family, they may want intervention before detention but, if the prayer is for protection for them rather than for ‘exorcism’ for the person then it cannot be ignored. My prayer is that God mobilize resouces to protect both the family AND the person and especially whoever might be the alternative target who won’t see him coming.
Praying for God’s power to be released to free this man from his demons, and God’s proctection for the family.
Definitely helping to fight this battle with prayer!!

I’m praying now. 7:15 edt Mar.12
In the name of my Savior and King, my Captain, my Lord, the Great Healer who triumphed over Hell and Death, in the name of Jesus Christ I pray the devil be bound and cast down, that the people here involved would be under a complete hedge of protection, that they would have peace and know the Lord is guarding them and I pray that the man possessed by a demon would be completely set free. Amen. Hallelujah. Amen.
it may be a spiritual struggle on some level BUT it is the physician’s responsibility to report to the authorities what his patient has planned, specifically his intent to physically harm either himself or his family! who is the physician? The physician must report this to the authorities and if he doesn’t, he can/will be held accountable if his patient follows through on his plans. i will pray but honestly, this is truly unbelievable. he needs to be hospitalized NOW before it’s too late! i am praying for his soul and that your friend will contact both the physician and authorities IMMEDIATELY!
This will be in My prayers
Praying the full Armor of God is worn tightly by your friend…
Continue to Fight the Good Fight,
