||TESTIMONIES PROVING THAT DELIVERANCE WORKS
Jimmy and his beautiful wife came to us in great financial
and emotional distress. The wife was seriously demonized,
while Jimmy was reeling under attacks from
He once had a highly successful real estate business in
New York. Within a few years he built up an enviable
company worth millions of dollars. He had a big office in
Brooklyn that employed many agents. Business was
He then sent to his people in the Caribbean Islands to
come live with him and get a piece of his success. When
they arrived, they could not believe how well-off he was.
He housed them in his five bedroom mansion and fed
them three square meals every day. Envy ensued and as
the Bible says in James 3:16:
“Where envying and strife is, there is confusion and every
His relations began working witchcraft against him and
his business. Many times he would come home and find
dead birds on his door step. Many times, thousands of
bees would congregate on his bedroom window. Swarms
of flies did the same. Many times he would come home
and find white powder sprinkled around his mansion. The
same thing happened in his office.
Before long, the witchcraft curses sent against him took
effect. One by one he lost all his houses till he was left
with just one. The day he went to the only house left, he
almost lost his life.
For some strange reason, he went and knocked on the
wrong door. Unfortunately the occupant of that house had
been robbed many times, so he assumed that Jimmy was
an intruder. As the tenant opened the door, he pulled out
his gun, telling Jimmy to say his last prayers.
In great shock Jimmy screamed out loud, “I came to the
wrong door, I am a landlord in the area.” The man pushed
Jimmy out of the house, and he stumbled to the right
door. His confusion and the resulting incident was part of
the witchcraft attack against his life. The plan was to kill
him that day but the Lord had mercy on him.
To cut a long story short, Jimmy lost his business, his
home, his houses, his specially manufactured Mercedes
Benz—everything but his life.
To make matters worse, his wife came under serious
attacks as well. It was during deliverance that we discovered
that the spiritual attacks did not come only from his
side, but came from his wife’s side too.
Here is her story.
She is a descendant of the feared Jamaican Maroons.
They were known as great warriors that successfully
repelled the British Army. Their women single-handedly
confronted and defeated the British in battle. Legend has
it that they stopped bullets with their buttocks.
According to her, their men were some of the best drummers
that lived at that time. They would barely touch the
drums, and yet the noise coming from the drums would be
deafening. It was demonically inspired drumming.
Jimmy’s wife came from that background. When we
prayed for her, the spirit told us that spirits from her
family aided Jimmy to become rich, but because he got
cocky, they decided to cooperate with enemies from his
family and used all means to bring him down.
The deliverance session of Jimmy’s wife began at 12
noon and lasted till three o’clock the next morning. I have
never seen anything like that in my life. Every spirit we
called out manifested. What amazed me was that the
names of the spirits were African deities and powerful
demons. We cast out Yemoja, Osanyin, Ogun, Obatala
and many more. These are idols worshipped in West
Africa. I was stunned to see someone who had never been
to Africa mention those names.
By midnight we had cast out all the spirits but five.
Heading this clique was the powerful god of thunder, who
called himself Shango. Every effort we made was futile. I
then went into my office to rest and pray for the best
strategy to use to get Shango out of there. Before long,
God gave me a beautiful strategy.
I went upstairs and said, “Shango are you still there?”
With a deep male voice he answered, “Yes, the most
powerful god of thunder is in the house.”
I then asked, “Are you as powerful as you claim to be?”
He replied, “More powerful than you know.”
Then, based on the strategy the Lord gave me, I decided
to appeal to Shango’s ego.
I said, “Shango, if truly you are this powerful, why do
you need four other demons to help you keep the house?”
Shango replied, “I don’t need any other helper.”
Then I said, “If you truly don’t need help from any other
spirits, prove it by casting them out.”
He fell for the bait. He did and for the next thirty minutes
or so Jimmy’s wife threw up and sneezed many times.
Finally Shango said to me, “See what I have done? I told
you I am very powerful.”
He made our job easier because now we did not have to
deal with five spirits, but one.
It did not take long before Shango succumbed to the
Lord’s power and left the woman alone.
She and Jimmy have since moved down to the southern
part of the United States to start life afresh.
