Test the Spirits

I was greatly grieved over the senseless death of George Floyd that happened a couple of weeks ago and I am praying for the Lord to heal our land, heal the racial divides, the pain, bitterness, etc. Jesus died for all people. He loves us all equally. As a Christian, I am all for justice and equality and for peaceful protests, but unfortunately, I believe there are forces that have tried to hijack the peaceful protests and turn them into something very destructive. Jesus said “It’s the thief (Satan) who comes to kill, steal and destroy” (John 10:10).

For those who are intercessors, I would like to share something the Lord showed me recently so that together we can know how to pray more effectively against the demonic powers that are working behind the scenes.

Just before waking up on June 3rd of this year, I saw a figure wearing mostly black with some red, waving a huge black flag. As I pondered this, I remembered seeing a similar scene of an ISIS fighter (a while ago), waving a similar black flag. I also remembered that sometime last year when there were riots or clashes going on involving the Antifa people I had also had another revelation from the Lord.

Just before I woke up, I started seeing a scene with the Antifa people dressed in all black with pipes, chains, etc. I woke up and began praying against violence, etc., and then went back to sleep. A short time later, I saw a ball of light coming at me at a very high rate of speed. It disappeared right in front of my face and then I suddenly had a word of knowledge. The word was “there is a middle eastern spirit behind Antifa”. Again I got up and began to pray.

After waking up the next morning, I shared this with my husband, who told me that he had just read an article the day before that said the Antifa people were being trained at the Islamic training camps (who train them how to hurt and kill people).

As I said previously, I am against racism and all for equality and unity, but I think there are many spirits working together to deceive and divide people, even Christians, and I think it is important that we recognize what is going on behind the scenes and what kind of spirits are at work. 1 John 4:1-3 says:

1 Beloved, do not put faith in every spirit, but prove (test) the spirits to see whether they proceed from God: for many false prophets have gone forth into the world. 2 By this you may (perceive and recognize) the Spirit of God: every spirit that acknowledges and confesses (the fact) that Jesus Christ has become man and has come in the flesh is of God (has God for its source); 3 And every spirit that does not acknowledge and confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh (but would annul, destroy, sever, disunite Him) is not of God (does not proceed from Him). This (nonconfession) is the (spirit) of the antichrist, (of) which you heard that it was coming, and now it is already in the world. (The Amplified Bible).

I recently have seen a few different versions of Antifa flags, some were all black, some were black with white writing on them (like the Islamic or ISIS flag) and one had a picture of a large black flag on the top and a smaller red flag under it. These were the same colors (black and red) of the being I saw on June 3rd, holding a black flag. I had prayed about what these colors represented after I had the dream on June 3rd and felt the Lord impressed on me that it was a spirit of Islam and Communism that was combining their efforts with Antifa. Black represents mourning and death and avenging the deaths of their “martyrs”; red represents war and bloodshed (see Revelation 6:4), but it is also the color of Communism. The goal of the demonic spirits working behind the scenes (and the people they use) is chaos and anarchy, the over-throw of our American government, a push for socialism/communism and eventually a one world government. This will lead up to the coming of the antichrist. So, I just want to encourage all my brothers and sisters in Christ to check out what the organizations stand for and who is the source of their funding before you align with them. We are called to align ourselves with God’s agenda, not the agenda of the world and certainly not the agenda of the antichrist.
