Slumber of Jezebel HTML version

of it quickly right now. What's been filling your time? What's been filling your heart? What have you been using to jus t
fill yourself up? Can be all kinds of things that comfort you and make you feel better, but at the end it's all the same.
We become asleep and don't realise demons have come into our life, then they ruin us. They ruin our legacy, they
ruin our lives. I've seen it over the years, never quite understood why it happened, it's a spirit power. Stand up. Just
come back to the Lord. Why don't you say like Samson, oh Lord, remember me, REMEMBER ME! REMEMBER ME!
God remembered him - or like Elijah, you go back and face that situation.
Perhaps you've yielded to fear, and yielded to words of accusation, murder, hate, death. They've come around your
soul and life and shut you down. Lord, you need to break the power of those words, need to cancel those words,
need to rise up and forgive those people, get that hurt out of your heart. Or maybe it's more like the disciples; you've
had a lot of sadness, and various things have disappointed you, and you've just shut down inside. That thing's got
control of you, you're no longer the person you used to be, because something wounded you. Well I've got good
news. Jesus died and carried our sorrows on the cross.
Let's just pray together. I believe this is a fresh word. I never read about this anywhere. I felt it's something God just
showed to me and I believe it's spiritually present across our nation, and it's affected us as a church, definitely
affected me, probably for about a decade. I can see it now, and I'm after it. So I'm going to rise up, God will help.
