who is leviathan

Scripture references to leviathan are:  Job 41, Isaiah 27:1, Psalms 74:13-14, and Psalms 104:26.

Through Christ Jesus God sent you to this Web site.  This is that day spoken of in Isaiah 27:1--"In that day the Lord with is sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent and he shall slay the dragon that is in the sea."

There is a strong evil spirit named leviathan.  This very powerful demon has been repeatedly encountered and the more we know about what leviathan does and how he operates, the more likely we are to win this fierce contest with him.
"Thou didst divide the sea by thy strength; thou brakest the heads of the dragons in the waters.  Thou brakest the heads of the leviathan in pieces, and gavest him to be meat to the people inhabiting the wilderness" (Psalms 74:13).  Here leviathan is associated with water and the ocean and is pictured with multiple heads.
"There go the ships; there is that leviathan, whom thou has made to play therein" (Psalms 104:26).  "In that day the Lord with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent and he shall slay the dragon that is in the sea" (Isaiah 27:1).  Here he is called both a dragon and a serpent, and again is connected with the sea.
The most extensive reference to this strange creature is found in Job 41.  The fact that the Bible devotes an entire chapter describing him indicates his importance.  The Modern Language translation reads:
"Can you draw out the crocodile with a hook or hold down his tongue with a cord?  Can you put a fish line through his gills or pierce his jaws with a spur?  Will he make repeated requests of you:  Will he use friendly words in addressing you: will he make a bargain with you that you should take him as your servant for life?  Would you play with him as the birds or keep him as a plaything for your girls?
"Will fishermen bargain  over him, apportioning him among the merchants?  Can you fill his skin with barbed darts or his head with harpoons?  Lay your hand upon him then remember the conflict.  You will not do it a second time!  The man who hopes to master him will be disillusioned.  At the sight of him a person is paralyzed.  No one is foolhardy enough to stir him up.
"Who has ever stripped off his thick coat or mail or pierced his impenetrable scales?  Who can open the doors of his mouth; around his teeth there is terror.  His back is shingled with scales closely fitted together with a tight seal.  So near are his scales to one another that no air can get between them.  They clasp one another, joining so closely they cannot be separated.
"His sneezings sparkle light; his eyes are like rays of morning.  Out of his jaws come burning torches and sparks of fire shoot out.  From his nostrils vapors issue as steam from a boiling pot over burning rushes.  His breath sets coals on fire; a flame issues from his mouth.
"Such strength dwells in his neck that panic moves before him.  The folds of his flesh close in on each other firmly and are immovably cast upon him.  His heart is as hard as a rock, solid as a nether millstone.  When he raises himself up the mighty are afraid and are beside themselves with panic.
"To hit him with a sword is useless; so is a spear, a dart or javelin.  To him iron is as straw and copper as rotten wood.  Arrows do not rout him, sling stones he treats as stubble.  Clubs are counted by him as reeds and he mocks the rattle of javelins.  His nether parts are like potsherds, they leave threshing sledge grooves in the mire.
"He makes the deep to boil like a pot, the sea like a vessel of ointment.  Behind him he leaves a foaming wake and one wonders if the sea might be growing frost.  On earth there is not his equal.  A creature devoid of fear, he looks down on all that is highest.  He is a king over all the sons of pride" (Job 41).
Leviathan particularly hates this chapter, and the first and second commandments; also the references to him in Isaiah which label him as the crooked serpent.
Although we do not know much about leviathan's work, this chapter and other references definitely connect him with the sea.  Undoubtedly he is the inspiration for the various mythological gods of the sea:  Neptune, Poseidon, Dagon and others.   Always there is one demon god who rules the seas or rivers and who has his characteristics.  Some believe leviathan was the chief deity worshipped in Atlantis and that this kingdom was destroyed by God in judgment.
As we have confronted leviathan in deliverance, certainly we have only uncovered a very few of the various things that he does.  Over and over when there have been severe problems with Bible study; concentration on spiritual goals; restrictions and bondages which hinder worship or just about any thing which is genuinely spiritual and of the Lord; there we have found leviathan operating.  I refer to a real flowing with the Holy Spirit, not the shallow, bogus religious externals which often pass for spirituality today.  Another area where he works is in causing a variety of learning difficulties for youngsters, including reading problems.
Another common characteristic of leviathan is that he is almost always present as the result of a curse riding on the family.  Almost everyone in the family will have problems in this area.
To break the curse, declare:  "I do break the curse of leviathan back to ten generations on both sides of the family, and destroy any legal rights or grounds which give evil spirits reason to operate.  I destroy all these in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ."  Next move directly against the evil spirit, ordering him to mainifest and leave in Jesus' name.
Believers need genuine edification by prayer in the Spirit and with the understanding; Bible study; heartfelt praise; and fellowship with the Lord's people.  These are hindered or stopped by leviathan, depending upon how much control he exerts over that particular individual.  Some deliverance workers have reported that leviathan is responsible for stopping revival movements and works in conjunction with ruling spirits in the heavenlies to block and hinder the moving of God's Spirit in the climatic, final endtime revival.
When you battle with leviathan you will learn why scripture declares him to be a powerful, wily foe and a nightmarish monster.  His description is so frightening it is probably just as well that we cannot see him face to face.
If the Lord lets you see in to the spirit world, fine, however, if not, don't fret about it.  People often ask if I can see the spirits I battle.  On very rare occasions I have seen a demon.  When I asked the Lord why I did not see them all the time He said I was to teach thousands how to cast out demons.  Because I did not see them but could cast them out, believers everywhhere would be encouraged to join in the battle.  If I could see the demons with whom I dealt, then others would tend to take the view that they too would join the battle as soon as they possessed this "gift."
"Seeing in the spirit" realm is not an unmixed blessing.  Although it can be useful, too often it is a hangover from the mind being forced open in the occult.  One danger is the tendency to become absorbed in the bits and pieces, losing sight of the goal of knocking out the enemy.  The battle is the important thing, the weapons by which it is won will vary from case to case.
Leviathan certainly doesn't sound like anything you would want to meet on a dark night or even in the daylight.  This demonic entity is said to be impossible to attack.  His appearance is so terrible, he is so powerful and ghastly looking, that his enemies are paralyzed with fear at the sight of him.
We do not go into conflict as natural men, but can succeed because of the supernatural power which we have in Jesus (Luke 10:19).  Attacking from the third heaven, high above Lucifer, principalities, powers, thrones, dominions, world rulers, kings, princes and every other angelic rank, we are able to prevail.
When leviathan manifests expect a determined resistance to expulsion.  He often will manifest with serpentine twisting and winding of the person's head, body and limbs.
In Isaiah 14:14, Lucifer said in his heart (secret sin), "I will be like the Most High."  Ambitious pride snared Satan himself and he has regularly used this to subvert human beings, since all are susceptible and never quite immune to it.  We must remain constantly vigilant lest this spirit gain a foothold in our lives and thinking.
Often pains and stiffness in the neck and shoulder region have been traced to leviathan.  As he begins to manifest, many times these symptoms will surface.  Although this is not the only source of such discomfort, for problems of this nature, check leviathan.
One of the immediate blessings resulting from the expulsion of leviathan is a radical change apparent in outlook and whole approach to spiritual growth process.  Many report a clearing of confusion and a greatly increased ability to read and retain the Word.
Notice that after the long, detailed description of the monster, God asks, tongue-in-cheek, if you would care to make a pet of him.  This would be like taking a tyrannosaurus home for a pet.
If we could see these awesome powers we attack we would appreciate even more the superior power and protection given to us by the Lord.  Not only can we confront but we can attack these tremendous creatures with impunity!  This explains their fuming anger, fury, and frustrated rage.
The Bible speaks often about loosing captives and this very thing was prophesied about Jesus.  As we follow Jesus and learn to do his works, we must loose the captives, held prisoner by demonic forces.
Freedom is available; God has ordained it and we must never let the ridicule or opposition of foolish people prevent us from pursuing deliverance.  Always there will be those who misunderstand what we are doing and why; they will even think us to be enemies.
Satan's prison house still holds multitudes in dreadful bondage and he uses cruel creatures such as leviathan to drive, to harass and to torment, destroying all hope.  To be captive is a terrible, miserable existence.
When demons gain the upper hand in lives, seizing control, they force victims into abject slavery to every whim of the spirits.  Surely we must storm the citadels of the adversary and destroy leviathan's kingdom.


Job 41 is the key passage on leviathan.  Most of the people who have this powerful spirit never get deliverance because one of his chief jobs is to block deliverance.  Ministers who refuse to open up to the ministry of deliverance are being controlled by a leviathan spirit.  This is their chief problem.  Most of the people who fight the deliverance ministry have powerful leviathan demons, and are therefore rarely delivered.  Perhaps one of the reasons we know so little about this spirit is because we do not get to tackle him as often as others.
Strong's Concordance (3882, 3867) defines leviathan as a wreathed animal or a serpent.  He is also called the constellation of the dragon, or Orion.  Within the constellation Orion there are seven stars, each with a name.  These names have been found helpful in dislodging leviathan in deliverance.  Pleaides and Articus are two of these seven stars (demons) tied in with leviathan.  Often when you manage to force them out, leviathan is also defeated. 
Another word for leviathan means to twine, to unite and to remain. Again we are reminded of his serpentine nature and that he is a strongman.  A word which occurs six times in the Old Testament comes from a root word which means to bend or twist.  It means literally wreathed; like a wreath; to be wreathed; gathering itself in folds.  The context suggests some form of aquatic monster which dwells in the sea.  In the scriptures the sea represents nations of people.  The sea is the voice of many waters, or many people, in the book of Revelation.
In Psalms 74:14, is a reference to Pharaoh and the Exodus, which parallels with another Hebrew word "tannon," which means a sea or river monster.  The word occurs again in Ezekiel 29:3-5 symbolizing Pharaoh and the Egyptians.  Oftentimes there is an Egyptian spirit tied in with leviathan, a spirit of the world and worldliness.
In Job 3-8 reference is made to a dragon, which according to ancient mythology, was supposed to cause eclipses by wrapping itself around the sun.  Leviathan was considered to be a great mythical monster, identified with the Babylonian mother goddess, Timat.  The father of Timat was Apsu, in the Babylonian creation story.  This monster fought with Marduk by reciting charms and casting witchcraft spells.
In the Word there is a seven-headed monster, which takes us back to the constellation Orion and its seven stars.  The seven heads are the seven stars and the creature is described as a fleeing serpent, the tortuous serpents smitten by Baal.
Isaiah 27:1 declares:  "In that day the Lord, with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan, the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent (or tortuous serpent) and he shall slay the dragon that is in the sea."  There is a dragon in the sea (people or nations) and God is going to slay that dragon.
I believe He is already beginning and we are already there, tribulating now.  For example, there are some things which no longer bother me.  I have overcome areas in the sex and drug area, yet out in the world some are still falling like flies in those traps.  Even some Christians are being snared because they are not getting into deliverance and therefore not being set free.
The noun translated leviathan may also designate serpents such as might be roused by snake charming magicians.  These men were also reputed to be able to impose curses, therefore snake charming curses are involved here.
There is another root word, Lawa, in the Hebrew (Strong's 1087) used once in Ecclesiastes 8:15.  It refers to the joining of an item or a person to someone or something else.  Significantly, we believe that in the Bible this refers to foreigners who join God's people as converts, the joining of an alien thing to God's people.
In general, I think it refers to the way in which hedonistic pleasures stay with a man.  In Ecclesiastes 8:15:  "Then I commended mirth, because a man hath no better thing under the sun, than to eat, and to drink, and to be merry; for that shall abide with him of his labor all the days of his life, which God giveth him under the sun."
Notice, these pleasures will cling to a man.  Again the reference is to clinging, writhing and twisting.  They get caught up with a man internally.
Job 41 says:  "Canst thou draw out leviathan with an hook?  Or his tongue with a cord which thou lettest down?"  In our congregation there is a man from a hard background, he was a career army officer in Viet Nam.  When he came home his brains were scrambled.  Officials of the Army had judged him to be a 100% disabled schizophrenic.  He appeared on our doorstep one day after hearing our radio program.  This began a battle such as I had never seen, and it is not over yet.   We have been at it now for about six months.
Being a disabled veteran, he is required to report every month to a psychiatrist in order to maintain his disability.  After deliverance, he came to me and said he was so much better that he no longer was schizophrenic.  He asked "What am I going to tell them when I go back for my interview?"  I said, "Well, what do they want to find out?"  He said they just want to know whether or not I am still crazy.  I told him to tell them what had happened to him in deliverance.  It worked, for after that report they were certain he was crazy.
In his Bible studies he came to the conclusion that Behemoth (Job 4) was the will of man.  That big sluggish animal is strong, brassy and very hard to budge. Leviathan represents or burrows into the self of man.
In the book of Job the whole context is an ongoing debate between Job and his friends.  Finally, God announces that He has had enough and demands an answer in chapter 38:4:  "Where was thou when I laid the foundations of this earth?  Declare if thou has understanding."  In verse 31 He asks, "Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades or loose the bands of Orion?"
Here at the culmination of an entire revelation, God gives this righteous man of God an entire discourse about leviathan.  Some call him a crocodile or something else, but he is an evil spirit.  There is revelation here and although we do not have all of it, we can utilize what we do know.
When we get down to that real, true self, we are where leviathan has his stronghold.  He's a writhing serpent, seven heads, etc.  Although I've never seen him in the Spirit, he must be very ugly.  There is a part deep inside where leviathan dwells. Even after ousting him, there's still self-will which says, "This as far as I'm willing to go," and sure enough, if you listen; that is as far as you will go.
Job 41:8 says that when we lay our hands on leviathan we will remember the battle and will not do it again.  That struggle reminds us of our old self who does not want to reveal things, does not want anyone to know.
Job 41:15 states that the scales of leviathan are his pride and are shut up together with a close seal.  One is so near to another that no air can come between them.  In the scripture, air, breath and wind are synomymous with the Holy Spirit.
The reason people get so shut in is because of the effects of leviathan's tight coils around them, inhibiting the moving of the Spirit.  They cannot hear or discern the Spirit and they say they never get a word from the Lord or move in the gifts.  The reason is that no air of the Spirit is able to get in because this demon has such a strangle hold.  The scales are joined one to another and cannot be sundered.
"By his sneezings a light doth shine and his eyes are like the eyelids of the morning or the rays of dawn; out of his mouth goes burning lamps and sparks of fire leap out."  This brings to mind James' references to how the tongue kindles a fire.  Tongue problems are rooted in leviathan.  When he gets in the church and looses some of that fire, he sets the whole place ablaze.
"Out of his nostrils goeth smoke as out of a seething pot or cauldron; his breath kindleth coals and a flame goeth out of his mouth."  This refers to a cutting, critical tongue rooted in a spirit of pride.  I see this smoke going out of leviathan's nostrils as false praise and worship, like the smoke going up from the incense burning of Nadab.  Because the person is so bound up with pride, he cannot really praise God.  He is too important, too bound up in himself to give any real praise and worship to God.
In verse 22, "In his neck remaineth strength."  The neck reminds you of the will.  Stiffnecked pride and stubborness are with leviathan.  Sometimes strength in the neck can be a negative thing, because Jesus spoke of the stiffnecked and uncircumcised heart.  The bowing of the neck is rebelliousness, which brings us back to pride and sorrow.
Dismay goes with stubborn people just as the flakes or the folds of leviathan's flesh are joined together; firm in themselves and unable to be moved.  These people cannot be told anything, they know it all.  Haughtily they speak:  "God showed me that a Christian can't have a demon.  You're in deception, brother."
His heart or chest is said to be as firm as a stone, as hard as a piece of the nether millstone (verse 24).  Here, hard and cold heartedness are tied to leviathan.  "When he raises up himself, the mighty are afraid:  by reason of breaking they purify themselves."
In verse 31, he makes the deep to boil like a pot and there is a verse in Psalms which says "deep calleth unto deep."  This brings us back to self again.  The deep is where the real you is located.  There is a deep in me and I'm very careful about who I let in there.
God can get in there, deep calls unto deep, but the leviathan spirit will cause that deep to boil.  There will be a restlessness and turmoil inside.  Sometimes you cannot sleep well because there is something moving around, boiling in there.  This could well be a leviathan spirit at work inside.  Also note that this boiling is not only in you but that it also stirs up other people.
If you ever have occasion to spend much time around schizophrenics you will find that they just wear you out.  They have a problem and you do also.  We need to become unmovable, unable to get stirred up about anything except God's righteousness and the evil that is in the world.
"He maketh a path to shine after him and one would think the deep to be hoary (or have white hair; to have wisdom with old age); upon earth there is not his like, who is made without fear, or (who behave without fear).  He beholdeth all high things:  he is a king over all the children of pride (vs. 32-34).
Another way of stating this is that he looks down on all who are haughty; he is a king over all those who are proud.  Pride and leviathan are practically synonymous.  It is hard to separate them because pride causes that stony heart to close the scales and folds together blocking the Spirit of God from entering. Some sit listening, but not understanding or hearing the Word of God.  Leviathan's most crucial work is in the area of keeping people from receiving the things of God and of the Spirit.
You may say you have no pride but rebellious pride often hides.  Leviathan is sneaky and subtle and can easily hide himself.  He can twist, writhe and slip out of the way; causing one to reject dependence on God and subjection to God.  he is quick to attribute to self the honor due to God, therefore this pride is the very root and essence of all sin.
Long ago Lucifer said, "I will exalt myself; I will sit on the sides of the north and be king" (Isaiah 14).  The very root of his downfall was pride.  Me! Me! Me!  The awful worship of me, who needs no help.  "If I go to a church which is really real, they'll get revelation by the Spirit, of what I need."  That is just pride, nothing more or less!  It is like driving into a gasoline station and telling the attendant, "I have an unspoken request."  To tell the workers, "Just see what the Lord tells you," is rebellious pride in action.
The fallen devil, as described in Luke 10:18, still has a craving to be like God.  As a result of the fall our whole nature has become infected with pride.  The temptation to know good and evil, to eat of that forbidden tree was motivated by pride in Adam and Eve.
Just think, the tree of life was also there in the garden and God did not forbid them to eat of it.  Yet, they went straight over to eat of the tree of good and evil, not the tree of life.  That is pride.
We are descended from Adam and therefore easily affected by pride.  This why leviathan is so strong, powerful and deeply rooted in us.  The fascination with the forbidden, feeds leviathan who wreaths himslef tightly in the old self.
There is yet another dimension, even after deliverance from leviathan.  The crucifixion of self must still take place in many areas.  For example, people want to be delivered from cigarettes but they also must have a part.  In our church there is a pouting brother right now who refused to come to church last Sunday.  He had gotten deliverance from cigarette spirits, nicotine, tobacco, etc., and expected to get up the next morning without any desire for a cigarette.
Although this might happen, many times when you get up the next morning, you want one so bad that you think you are going to die.  Is the evil spirit still there:  No, he has gone.  What is that then?  That's me, that's me, that's the old self down there.  The only course to pursue is to put on the cross. 
Crosses were instruments of death having two dimensions.  Frankly, I don't know where we cross the line from the spirit of pride to just the old self which refuses to humble itself in submission to God.  You can resist the devil all day long but there must first be submission to God if you are really going to be free.
You may have to say, "God, I'm going to have to break out of this pride and become submissive to You."  This indeed might be the starting place to overthrow pride.  The condemnation of the devil is associated with pride (I Timothy 3:6) and his undoing.  Proverbs 8:13 says:  God hates pride, therefore there is no place in us for it.
Proverbs 16:18 warns that prides goes before destruction and a haughty spirit before a fall.  The word for pride used here is one which means swelling excellence.  Psalms 10:4 declares it to be the root cause of atheism.
Psalms 10:4:  "The wicked, through the pride of his countenance, will not seek after God:  God is not in all his thoughts."  The word here again is haughtiness, which brought about the downfall of Nebuchadnezzar in Daniel 4.
The dictionary defines pride as an over high opinion of oneself; exaggerated self-esteem, conceit; haughty behaviour; arrogance; delight or satisfaction in one's own or another's achievements.  God hates all of this.
Once when I was meditating and praying about leviathan, I asked God for a revelation.  Awakening in the night, God spoke to my heart that leviathan resides in the Holy Place and that he is a counterfeiter.
Any studies on the tabernacle of Moses will show a fenced outer court with a tent-like structure on the inside containing two rooms.  One was the Holy Place and the other the Holy of Holies.
The Holy Place was entered dialy by ministering priests and contained three pieces of furniture.  A massive golden candlestick or lampstand was lit and provided the only light.  There was a golden altar of incense where incense made sweet smelling smoke to go up as a type of worship and prayer to God and as a type of the baptism of the Holy Spirit.  There was also a table of shewbread to the right with twelve loaves of shewbread, which were replenished weekly.
When you came in through the second veil, you had already been at the Brazen Altar (salvation).  The second veil is the place of revelation and illumination by the Spirit of God, symbolized by the oil burning in the lamps.  Nourishment is from Jesus, the bread of life, on the shewbread table.
This is where leviathan has his place.  He is more interested in Spirit-filled people than anyone else.  One of the big problems in the Spirit-filled churches is pride.  We are so proud of our revelation!  We do have some truth, but God is too wise to give any one of us the whole thing.
We are three part beings; we are soul; we have a spirit, and we live in a body.  This is a type of the Holy Place where leviathan works.  He is at work in our soul; in our emotions, mind and will.
He attempts to keep us from entering into the Holy of Holies, into the very presence of God.  This is the third veil and he does not want us there, for once there, we have got it.  This third veil was rent when Jesus died on the cross.  This was that veil between the Spirit filled realm and the very presence of God.
No man could go there except Moses and the high priest, and then only once a year.  Here leviathan stands to block entrance.  He attempts to snuff out the lamps; cut off the bread (the manna); and he tries to keep us from offering up daily incense (prayer in the Spirit).  He does not want us to move in the Spirit; to have words of knowledge or any other spiritual gift.  He will choke us off with spiritual deafness and blindness, causing us to be tongue-tied.  God said leviathan is living in the Holy Place and is a counterfeiter.  His seven heads imitate the seven lamps of Revelation (Psalms 74:14; Job 41:19) The smoke from his nostrils is counterfeit prayer (worship at the altar of incense) and he is commissioned to counterfeit the genuine Pentecostal experience.
Leviathan wants us to have the counterfeit and if we get that and are satisfied with it, he has us.  Many have had counterfeit experiences.  Increasingly, we have had to cast out spirits of false tongues.  Many are requiring deliverance from false, error filled ministries.
Malachi 2 speaks of the blessings which have been cursed.  While I read that scripture one of the brothers in my church woke up.  It was as if he had been asleep for five years.   Five years earlier, he had become involved in a ministry led by a man in serious error.  Not knowing this, he walked with him for years before finally realizing the truth.  God told him to stay there although the man was cursing him from the pulpit.  Finally, God told him to leave.
He just realizeed that his blessings had been cursed for those five years.  When it lifted off of him with that scripture, he received a massive deliverance.  Perhaps you too are asleep.  Ephesians says, "Awake thou that sleepest, and arise from the dead, and Christ shall give you life."  Leviathan can come in to strangle your experience in God in such a way that you can slumber for years without notice.
The modern church today is largely asleep because of leviathan's work.  He loves to eclipse things and mythology associates him with the eclipse of the son.  He wants to eclipse the S-O-N in your life but you don't have allow this.  You can be free.
Leviathan is the climatic revelation of Job and the climax of the book is chapter 41.  God reveals the monster and Job responds in Job 41:5:  "I've heard but now I see."  He had the revelation.  Job's primary problem was pride and God had to hit him hard to enable him to see it.
In Isaiah 27:1 there is an endtime scene dealing with leviathan.  There is a parallel pasaage in Revelation 12:9 in which the devil is called the great dragon.  Some believe leviathan to be the devil and no doubt he is a close copy.
Scripture says much about pride; God breaks the pride of power because it refuses to hearken to His Word and to the commandments, despising his statutes (Leviticus 16:19; Job 33:17).  God speaks to a man at night to keep him from pride.  If God spoke to some of us audibly, we'd form a new denomination!
In Psalms 73:1-6, pride results from prosperity, therefore much of the extreme prosperity preaching can not be of God.  Pride comes from prosperity and from the lack of trouble (Psalms 73:1-6).  Paul said he had to learn how to be abased then how to abound.  It is much easier to learn how to be abased than how to abound.  The downfall of many good preachers has been accomplished by prosperity and the lack of trouble.  In deliverance at least, we will not lack for either.
Shame follows after pride (Proverbs 11:2); pride brings contention and breeds quarrels (Proverbs 13:10).  If you're a quarreler, contentious, always arguing with people, your problem is pride and leviathan.  pride brings a man low (Proverbs 29:23); pride defiles a man (Mark 7:22).  We need not worry about the fellow who becomes proud and arrogant, for God will take care of him.
Pride is our biggest area of blindness.  It can be right before us and we will fail to see it or to call it pride.  It is rooted in rejection and rebellion.  We react to rejection with perfectionism and as we become "perfect," we achieve the carnal goals of having things just as we want them.  We begin to puff up with pride.  "I want somebody to love me, so I'll set myself a goal, achieve it and say, look at me; look what I've done."  We develop an exaggerated opinion of ourselves, vanity follows, with excessive pride.
Pride may even hide itself under a false humility.  "I'm such a mess.  Oh, I'm so thankful I got to come."  Ego also rises up when we become hyper-self conscious.  Self awareness leads to intolerance of others because they are not as perfect as we are.  In comes a critical spirit as satan works to load us with demons.  We become frustrated and impatient because everyone is not as we want them to be.  It is frustrating for we can not change them to suit ourselves.
Because a perfectionistic person is still aware of his own personal flaws and problems, he is miserable.  He sees his problems and cannot solve them, therefore he begins to project them onto other people.  He will talk about and accuse others (Proverbs 13:10). 
Because other people are so messed up, this justifies his becoming disobedient and anti-submissive or rebellious.  That husband just won't straighten up so she must take over.  He will not be the priest of the house or pray, therefore she must take charge because he is not perfected yet.
Create him in your own image instead of letting God create him in His image.  Ladies, if you try this you are going to have a monster on your hands.  It is better to leave him alone and let God create him in God's image.  Deep inside, the perfectionist believes that nobody can or should be trusted, not even God, because sometimes even he misses the mark.
When God does not seem to answer your prayers, you wonder why He messed up.  After all, you had every right to have that prayer answered, the Word says so.  "Why didn't You answer my prayer God?"  If you got in your prayer closet and became honest, that is what some of you would have to talk about.  This stands between you and everything else and will keep you from getting deliverance.  If you cannot even trust God, who can you trust?
"Me, I'm dependable," and in comes self-will as you become your own source of authority.  You will be selfish and stubborn, caught in a proud snare (Psalms 31:20).  Self-deception deceives, defrauds and misleads a person about himself.  Self-seduction means to tempt, decoy or mislead into something wrong or evil.
When we seduce ourselves, pride reinforces itself and it becomes a vicious circle.  The afflicted one becomes unteachable, judgmental and usually seeks to control others with an attitude of possessiveness.  It is a downward spiral for when you become unteachable, you have moved to the place where very little help is available.
There is little success with unteachable people.  The critical time comes when one's ultimate confidence in God as the object and source shifts to oneself as the object and source.  God must be our source and the object of all we want.  When such a shift takes place and I become the source, then I become legalistic:  "If I don't do this or that," it's not going to be right.
Pride makes professions such as:  "It's over; I can't stand it nor I'm only human," etc.  Slogans we often pick up are loaded with pride as are some religious advertisements and ballyhoo such as:  famous, renowned, apostolic, dynamic, powerful, international, stupendous, etc.
Some of our do nots and will nots:  "I don't do that and I don't do this" can be pride.  "Why, God?" Who are you to ask God why?  "I want some private ministry.  Can I talk to you alone?"  There is pride cropping up again.
The good news is that Jesus is both the Answer and the Deliverer.  We know there is no condemnation in Christ Jesus and we thank the Lord for the spirit of conviction.  May we all work diligently to root out all pride for the destruction of leviathan in the name of Jesus.
Based on a sermon preached by Steve Bell

Through Christ Jesus, before you pray the prayer of deliverance, you need to know that the prayer is just the beginning of your deliverance.  You will also need to separate yourself from among the congregation to allow God to purge you.  Your deliverance will not be complete until you are purged, and only God knows how long this will take.  THIS IS NOT A QUICK FIX.  The deliverance prayer, the purging instructions, and purging prayer follow.  However, if you are not willing to separate yourself from among the congregation, you will get confused because your minister is not delivered from leviathan, and whatever is coming out of his or her mouth will conflict with what God is doing with you.  THIS IS VERY IMPORTANT.  IF YOU ARE NOT WILLING TO SEPARATE YOURSELF WHILE YOU GO THROUGH THE PURGING PROCESS, DON’T BOTHER TO WASTE YOUR TIME PRAYING THE PRAYER OF DELIVERANCE BECAUSE IT WILL NOT WORK. 

PRAYER OF DELIVERANCE FROM LEVIATHAN:  From the Ministry of Prophetess Wilhelmina Dupree, God’s Ministry for Battered Men and Women

Whenever you pray, ALWAYS begin your prayer with “THROUGH CHRIST JESUS FATHER.”  This how you come to the Father through Jesus-- John 14:6.

THIS PRAYER IS SUPERNATURAL, THEREFORE IT IS ANOINTED OF GOD, SO BELIEVE THAT IT IS THROUGH CHRIST JESUS AND ONLY GOD-- Lay your hand on your forehead, with your thumb on one temple, and your fingers on the other temple, apply a little pressure, NOW PRAY:

Through Christ Jesus, thank You Father for taking care of ALL these situations.  Father, Jesus spoke these words in John 14:6:  “I AM THE WAY THE TRUTH AND THE LIFE: NO MAN COMETH TO THE FATHER BUT BY ME.”; and in Matthew 16:19 Jesus said, “And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven:  and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.”  Now, through Christ Jesus, I thank you Father that You have given us the keys of the kingdom of heaven and I bind that leviathan imagination demon, that leviathan figuring out demon, that leviathan vain imagination demon, and that leviathan Orion spirit off my mind and my brain and I curse it at the tip end of the root, from the time the sperm entered my mother’s womb, ten generations back on both sides of my family, and I command it to wither and die like the fig tree, just like Jesus cursed the fig tree and it withered and died.  Now Jesus You curse it for me.  Now, through Christ Jesus Father I loose the Holy Spirit to work in my life, and I loose my mind and my brain to You, AND I THANK YOU FATHER FOR TAKING ME OVER.

Purging is the process of God cleaning out your subconscious mind of the thought pattern that was there from before the prayer of deliverance was prayed, only God knows what those thoughts are, and they won’t be the same for everyone.  Only God knows how long it will take to clean it all out.  THIS IS NOT A QUICK FIX, it took you all of your life to get to where you are now, but there is an end if you stay with it until God lets you know that it is done.

If you don’t allow God to purge you of the old thought pattern, leviathan will come back and establish a stronger hold on you.  Also, the Word will not take in your heart--because the old unbelief sinful thoughts will conflict with the Word.  “Jesus said in: Luke 5:36-38--[36] … No man putteth a piece of a new garment upon an old; if otherwise, then both the new maketh a rent, and the piece that was taken out of the new agreeth not with the old.  [37] And no man putteth new wine into old bottles; else the new wine will burst the bottles, and be spilled, and the bottles shall perish. [38] Butnew wine must be put into new bottles; and both are preserved.”   In other words you must be made clean by getting rid of all the old—the old is the thought pattern that you had before the deliverance prayer was prayed.  Before you can receive the new, which is the Word of God, the old must be purged.

In the deliverance prayer, your mind and your brain were loosed to God, so you now will be conscious of your thoughts.  Whenever thoughts come up of whatever you are struggling with, that is God bringing up the thoughts so that He can purge you of them.  DO NOT GIVE YOUR THOUGHTS TO THE DEVIL.  Contrary to how you may have been taught, the Devil does not know what you are thinking.

PRAYER FOR PURGING (from the Ministry of Prophetess Wilhelmina Dupree, God’s Ministry for Battered Men and Women)

When you first become aware of the thoughts, you should immediately give the thoughts to God, and you can give your thoughts to God by saying the following simple prayer: 

“Through Christ Jesus, thank you Father God for First Peter 5:6 and 7, self-believe, now, ONLY GOD, Amen.” 

And we emphasize “self-believe, now, ONLY GOD” because you are telling yourself to believe that now it is only God bringing up the thoughts.  This is very important to recognize so that you do not give that serpent Devil credit for your thoughts.  God made you, and He is the only one that controls your thoughts.  Say this simple prayer every time God brings up thoughts of whatever you may be struggling with.  If you hold on to the thoughts too long, you hinder the process.  You must be ever vigilant. 

The purging process goes right along with the following scripture reference----

II Corinthians 10:3-6--[3] For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war after the flesh:  [4] (For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds;) [5] Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ; [6] And having in a readiness to revenge all disobedience, when your obedience is fulfilled.

REMEMBER, THIS IS NOT A QUICK FIX.  Through Christ Jesus, God will let you know when your purging is complete.  This will take time, and only God knows how long.  Please do not be discouraged if you do not always catch the thoughts immediately when God brings them up.  Just be persistent, and say the purging prayer every time God brings up thoughts of whatever you may be struggling with.  Don’t give up—remember, Galatians 6:7-9—[7] Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.  [8] For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. [9] And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap; if we faint not.  Also, be prayerful---“Matthew 26:41—Watch and pray that ye enter not into temptation:  the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.”  Take the time to spend time with God.  That is the only way that you will be able to walk in your deliverance.  Resist the temptation to skip spending time with God on a daily basis.  You will need to keep close contact with God.  Keep your heart open to God.  Always pray, and ask God to search your heart because only He knows what is in there, and only He knows when you may have opened the door, and leviathan has slipped back in.  That is why it is so important to do this on a daily basis.  Leviathan is sneaky and subtle, and can easily sneak back in on you unawares.  ---“Psalm 139:23-24---[23] Search me, O God and know my heart:  try me and know my thoughts:  [24] And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting.”---“Jeremiah 17:9-10---[9] The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?  [10] I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, . . .”

To go along with this process, we strongly recommend that you get a copy of the daily devotional, "Streams in the Desert," by L. B. Cowman.  It will be very relevant to what God will take you through if you will allow Him.


Dear Ministers:

 God is giving you this opportunity to humble yourself before Him by receiving this message as from Him, and seek His face concerning the following:

Isaiah 42:14---I have long time holden my peace; I have been still, and refrained myself: now will I cry like a travailing woman; I will destroy and devour at once.

1 Peter 4:17---For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God?

2 Thessalonians 2:3---Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition;

In reference to the above scriptures, God is speaking to the ministers of the church that He has held His peace for a long time and He is coming through like a tidal wave, and that tidal wave is the Holy Spirit.  It will cut on the left and it will cut on the right.  All that is not of Him will be cut away, judgment must begin at the house of God, and there will come a falling away.

There is a hidden spirit named leviathan (which comes on you through pride) that, unless you are delivered from it, makes it impossible for you to be conscious of all your thoughts, therefore not being able to see yourself and be aware of your sin.  Because of the fall, everyone that is born has this spirit and, unless leviathan has been bound by calling his name, leviathan, and cast out, he is still there.  The leviathan makes your heart hard, therefore the Holy Spirit cannot get through.  If you would humble yourself through fasting and prayer, God will reveal him to you.  If you immediately reject this, God is speaking ---Jeremiah 17:9-10---[9] The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?  [10] I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings.---and also Hosea 4:6---My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.

Psalms 7:13-14, Psalms 104:26, Isaiah 27:1, and the entire 41st chapter of Job describe leviathan and are listed as follows:

Psalms 7:13-14---[13] Thou didst divide the sea by thy strength: thou brakest the heads of the dragons in the waters.  [14] Thou brakest the heads of leviathan in pieces, and gavest him to be meat to the people inhabiting the wilderness.

Psalms 104:26---There go the ships: there is that leviathan, whom thou hast made to play therein.

Isaiah 27:1----1] In that day the LORD with his sore and great and strong sword shall punish leviathan the piercing serpent, even leviathan that crooked serpent; and he shall slay the dragon that is in the sea.

Job 41:1-34---1] Canst thou draw out leviathan with an hook? or his tongue with a cord which thou lettest down?  [2] Canst thou put an hook into his nose? or bore his jaw through with a thorn?  [3] Will he make many supplications unto thee? will he speak soft words unto thee?  [4] Will he make a covenant with thee? wilt thou take him for a servant for ever?  [5] Wilt thou play with him as with a bird? or wilt thou bind him for thy maidens?  [6] Shall the companions make a banquet of him? shall they part him among the merchants?  [7] Canst thou fill his skin with barbed iron? or his head with fish spears?  [8] Lay thine hand upon him, remember the battle, do no more.  [9] Behold, the hope of him is in vain: shall not one be cast down even at the sight of him?  [10] None is so fierce that dare stir him up: who then is able to stand before me?  [11] Who hath prevented me, that I should repay him? whatsoever is under the whole heaven is mine.  [12] I will not conceal his parts, nor his power, nor his comely proportion.  [13] Who can discover the face of his garment? or who can come to him with his double bridle?  [14] Who can open the doors of his face? his teeth are terrible round about..  [15] His scales are his pride, shut up together as with a close seal.  [16] One is so near to another, that no air can come between them.  [17] They are joined one to another, they stick together, that they cannot be sundered.  [18] By his neesings a light doth shine, and his eyes are like the eyelids of the morning.  [19] Out of his mouth go burning lamps, and sparks of fire leap out.  [20] Out of his nostrils goeth smoke, as out of a seething pot or caldron.  [21] His breath kindleth coals, and a flame goeth out of his mouth.  [22] In his neck remaineth strength, and sorrow is turned into joy before him.  [23] The flakes of his flesh are joined together: they are firm in themselves; they cannot be moved. [24] His heart is as firm as a stone; yea, as hard as a piece of the nether millstone.  [25] When he raiseth up himself, the mighty are afraid: by reason of breakings they purify themselves.  [26] The sword of him that layeth at him cannot hold: the spear, the dart, nor the habergeon.  [27] He esteemeth iron as straw, and brass as rotten wood.  [28] The arrow cannot make him flee: slingstones are turned with him into stubble.  [29] Darts are counted as stubble: he laugheth at the shaking of a spear.  [30] Sharp stones are under him: he spreadeth sharp pointed things upon the mire.  [31] He maketh the deep to boil like a pot: he maketh the sea like a pot of ointment.  [32] He maketh a path to shine after him; one would think the deep to be hoary.  [33] Upon earth there is not his like, who is made without fear.  [34] He beholdeth all high things: he is a king over all the children of pride.


Now God is re-emphasizing that He has held His peace for a long time and He is coming through like a tidal wave, and that tidal wave is the Holy Spirit.  It will cut on the left and it will cut on the right.  All that is not of Him will be cut away, judgment must begin at the house of God, and there will come a falling away.

Through Christ Jesus, it is my prayer that you receive this information as from God and not from me.

Peace, Love, and Joy in the Holy Ghost,

Evil Altars, foundational altars, generational curses

 Read more here



In Numbers 23 Balaam raised altars in an attempt to curse Israel.
The altar of Baal in Gideon’s family which Gideon destroyed. (Judges 6:25-32).
Demonic altars go along with spiritual legal rights, vows, agreements and covenants. Satan is well acquitted with spiritual laws that even God himself binds himself to these laws (his word is his law).
Today Christians lack huge knowledge and base everything on prayers, with bible reference to support their ignorance.  It’s very important we pray, but divine instructions and understanding spiritual laws can cause miraculous answer to prayers.
When Naaman came to Elisha, he instructed him to go and wash in the pool. This particular story is very important as it deals with generational issues. The reason why Elisha asked him to deep himself 7 times correlates to the fact that the diseases was in operation for 7 generations. Each deep represents one generation and that was why he saw no effect until he got to the 7th deep.  To ascertain these facts, when Gehazi misbehaved, Elisha’s curse on him confirms to the fact that this disease was a generational issue. (Study the story carefully)
Many Christians are suffering generational curses ignorantly, as a result of dedication to evil altars at work in their compound. Your fathers may have agreed with his gods to guard him and his children, this gives demons legal rights over you because when this happened you weren’t born again or born yet. Some forefathers served idols, visited or invited native doctors for one favor or the other and committed all manner of iniquities according to the instructions of their gods. 
Exodus 34:7 says,
"Keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, and that will by no means clear the guilty; visiting (punishing) the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children's children, unto the third and to the fourth generation."
We can’t disregard Exodus 34:7. Some refuse to accept these truths, backing up their reasons with scriptures.  Hold on,
Psalm 11:2 says-When the foundations are faulty, what can the righteous do?" 
Note: the word “righteous”. Sadly, with a little effort, scriptural verses can be found that will 'prove' any and all points of view, provided one removes all the surrounding text which actually determines its meaning.
I have seen with my eyes deliverances, were demons burst out of anger querying the minister if he was there when the fathers dedicated them to him. Demons understand their rights very well, even angels do. 
As you read, I will open your eyes to spiritual facts that no one can deny. Demons are behind every idol worshipped, and so Satan has the spiritual rights to afflict a Christian with a faulty foundation.
Lamentations 5:7 - “Our fathers sinned, and are no more; it is we who have borne their iniquities.”


1.       Altars have power to bless or curse (Numbers 23:1-30). Altars can and do speak for generations (Genesis 28:11-22).
2.       Altars stand as a memorial for those who raised them. (Genesis 17:15-21, Genesis 22:15-18, 1 Samuel 7:8-12).
3.       Altars can control destinies of people under its power. It’s a powerful force that can work for or against a person. ( I heard of a catholic priest who was next in line to be a chief priest of an idol, the deity behind the altar began to torment this man so he can pull his cassock and take up idol worship)
4.       Altars can speak on your behalf, either negatively and positively, in your absence or presence. Why? Because there is a deity behind the altar. (Revelation 16:7)
5.       Evil altars empower or propel generational curses. It gives demons access to your foundation. Bear in mind that no altar speaks without sacrifice, and it’s offered to demons which comes with covenants and some spiritual legal agreements. Vows are also made to demons which becomes spiritual legal documents for the enemy to torment families.
6.       Altars open unseen doors in the realm of the spirit. These are the highways for angelic traffic. As gates or portals.  Elijah did this in 1 Kings 17:1; 18:1-45

If you desire to overcome, then you must connect to greater altars of other great men of God. Some of them don’t sleep, offering sweet smelling incense all night long to God


Have you wondered why in some families, there are serious negative patterns that follow them, or some form of affliction that trails them? In Igbo land, when a man wants to marry, his fathers goes to investigate the wife's foundation, trying to ascertain traits that follow such family, why? Because in those days they understand foundation issues (its called "Ihe Aburu"). There are families that never gets to a particular level in life.  Some the first sons are poor or wayward, some they don't give birth to more than one male child, some they die at a particular age, and some they remain unmarried or childless. The cases are endless and indicates evil altars in operation.
When I first heard about evil altars, it wasn’t too clear to me what the minister was talking about. I almost disbelieved him since I knew my grandfather was a Christian. I looked into my village compound, no shrine or a place of sacrifice. These things may have stopped, or the shrines destroyed but as long as it wasn’t done by a strong man of God, what was removed was the physical objects and not the demons behind it.
Some spiritual husband and spiritual wife cases are engineered from altars in some family compounds.  An evil uncle may continue to worship family idols secretly.  You may say, “its not my business”, well if your fathers had agreements to serve these demons, and are no more, yet your uncle continues as the appointed priest, whether you like it or not, you are attached to them because it’s a family idol or practice and your child may be appointed next in line to be the priest.
These evil altars are strengthened anytime via animal sacrifice, libation or verbal confessions. That is why as a born again, you eat or breastfeed in dreams, fly or swim in dreams, sleep with man or woman in your dreams, and etc. Sometimes you see yourself in the secondary school or village compound, these are evil altars at work.
Also there are instance in the bible, in the lineage of Abraham, their first son's never make it to inheritance, if you trace the case, you will be shock on what happened  between Jacob, Joseph and his sons even to David and his sons. Meaning that there was a curse in operation and yet was almost undictated. Foundation issues can travel for generations unnoticed.
Circle of imitations, failures, hardships, poverty can be traced to family foundations due to agreements with demons when these altars were setup, some your forefathers may have said,” take wealth and protect me and my children”. How then, can this family experience prosperity when the devil holds this as a legal agreement against them?  Some they suffer affliction because the refuse to continue in the worship of these idols or some its generational curses. Nevertheless some may manage to be doing well, because they engage in evil practices. So the devil will leave them alone.  Let’s remember Jesus quoted this
Mark 3:24 - How can Satan cast out Satan? "If a kingdom is divided against itself, that kingdom cannot stand”
If ones livelihood is rooted in evil, then he is bound to die in sin except by grace he encounters Christ.  Its true that one or two can escape foundation issues due to God's grace but to some level. Generally speaking, the foundation will surely have a strong control on them.
Some generational curses can show itself through health issues or bad habits. Some families struggle with alcoholism, womanizing, lies, criminal records, cancer, diabetes, high BP and these things can also be evident in the life of the children. Sometimes we give them medical name as hereditary issues. What of cases of 2-4 people mad in a family? Does madness have hereditary issues?
The Israelites had to suffer affliction for 400 years why? It could be that Exodus 34:7 was at work since a generation is 100 years and this could mean that somehow along the line, their fathers may have transgressed against God. I was doing my study on Abraham and discovered that his father named "Terah" was an idol worshiper.
Genesis 15:13,
The Lord tells Abraham, “Know for certain that your offspring will be sojourners in a land that is not theirs and will be servants there, and they will be afflicted for four hundred years.” God knows everything that will happen, and He revealed part of the future to Abraham.

Evil altars come in different dimensions, and doesn’t respect anointing. Moses saw God (Exodus 33:18), at least his form, yet spirit of anger was at work in his life. Moses was a prophet, as a matter of fact spirit filled. (Todays born again).
You must understand that in those days, there are about three or four categories of people whom the Holy Spirit separates unto himself; prophets, prophetess, priest and kings. So he was a prophet yet a curse was at work. The truth is what you don’t deal with in your life will deal with you in this life. What you don’t address today will undress you and your children tomorrow.
Moses anger cost him a lot, but let me shock you to where his anger is coming from. When Jacob was blessing his children Genesis 49, he mentioned something that was visible in Simeon and Levi.
Genesis 49-5-7
“Simeon and Levi are brothers, their swords are weapons of violence.
Let me not enter their council, let me not join their assembly, for they have killed men in their anger and hamstrung oxen as they pleased. Cursed be their anger, so fierce, and their fury, so cruel"
Remember that Moses was from this lineage,
Exodus 1:2- Now a man of the tribe of Levi married a Levite woman, and she became pregnant and gave birth to a son (Moses).
This was a curse in operation and he didn’t deal with it, or was unaware.
Now altars can exact great control. I have seen people criticize certain men of God, but when they manage to get to him, they receive their miracles. You can see that the altar wants to stop them from going to their place of solution.  That church you are criticizing may be where your solution it.
That man, that woman you hate so badly may be your solution to your prayers of many years.
I have seen ladies, when suitors come, ignorantly the being to exhibit specific characters that turn the man off.  Sister, the spirit is at work and in fact knows those interested to marry and causes display of attitudes the man hates.
Deliverance ministry has faced one of the biggest criticism in the history of the church, why? Because it deals with satanic secrets, and exposes the enemy behind the seen.
Gehazi had the opportunity of becoming one of the greatest prophets in the Old Testament. Elisha served Elijah and received double portion of this anointing. Gehazi served Elisha and was in the right position to receive four times greater anointing of Elijah, yet the pursuit the flesh and brought curse up on himself.  Altars can cause you to inflict yourself so you don’t breakout. Make peace with your pastor, the enemy can use pride to deny you opportunities.
Altars never respects anointing Elisha had double potion of Elijah (2kings 2:11). But its shocking to see that Elisha died of common illness! A man who raised dead child, a prophet of signs and wonder; how on earth did this happen? There is something in his life he over looked.
Every wrong foundation my fathers have put in place, in the name of Jesus Christ the son of God, whose death on the cross redeemed me from the kingdom of darkness to the kingdom of light, I break out, I break out, I break out in Jesus name.
 Have you not seen men of God who started very well, yet the still struggle with habits and some finish poorly? Christians with weakness, which sometimes affect their work with God. Dimensions of altars.
Psalm 11:2- If the foundation being destroyed (faulty), what can the righteous do?
Do not allow the enemy to deceive you, some people refuse to accept truths and when the understand it, its late. How can you be in such condition yet be answering Christian, what is Christ about your condition? When you get to 40 years what is left of you? I want to provoke you in the spirit against foundational altars at work in your life. The bibles says “…the older shall serve the younger” Genesis 25:23 nonetheless, when Esau cried out with exceedingly bitter cry, then his father said, “When you become restless, you shall break the yoke (Gen 27:29-40)
If I continue, the dimensions are endless, (our book faulty foundations aka FF) dealt massively on such matters.


If you don’t stop them, they will stop you and not only that, your children will suffer it. Now the question is, how do one breakout or deal with these altars?
I have seen people take prayer warriors to their village or house, these things are good and sometimes show good results, the word of God says, “the prayer of a righteous man avails much and has great power”. the are also good ways to confront altars, but you don’t stop at that. For you to fight altars, you must raise another altars, which must be an altar of righteousness. When you take a man of God to your village compounds or house for prayers; just as your fathers did by inviting/visiting a witch/native doctor or satanic high priests, they buried things on the ground and made one or two sacrifices to empower what was invoked.

So taking a man of God to pray is good step, but when you deal with the fruits with dealing with the roots, fruits are bound to return, just a question of time.
The scriptures says,” You shall know the truth and the knowledge of it will make you free”. Deal with men of God who understands altar dimensions, men who understands the spiritual battles.
Ephesians 6:12
For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this age,[a] against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.
Note: we wrestle with demon spirits, you or the man of God must have understanding of demonic operations, you are dealing with spiritual legalities and high level of understanding must be in place.
When a whole archangel Michael confronted demons who laid claim on Moses body after his death, He didn’t weld his supreme authority over the fallen angels, he understood the legalities involved in the spiritual realm, so he said, “may the lord rebuke you”. The bible talked about lawful captives, so what does this mean? Some are held bound with reasons. Nonetheless, grace can intervene when called up only?  Satan knows his right and his places of operation.
Job 1:7 - The LORD said to Satan, "Where have you come from?" Satan answered the LORD, "From roaming throughout the earth, going back and forth on it."  1 Peter 5:8 confirms exactly why he was moving to and from seeking whom to devour. This proves he isn’t attacking everybody. If you analyze Job 1:7 you can see that Job wasn’t attacked until permission was granted.
I am working on another book (Understanding spiritual and natural laws). We need to be acquitted with spiritual legalities so we can stop blaming God for our weaknesses. You have a role to play and God has a role to play. Demons are behind every pain and affliction you are passing through.
To make progress you must destroy the old altars (demonic strongholds) and its priesthood. (Judges 6:25-31). To obtain the inheritance the Lord has given to us we must deal with the old altars in our families, communities, cities and countries that were raised unto Satan. Gideon did this and the Lord brought him into his destiny as a “mighty man of valor” (Judges 6:11-32) this means that his destiny could have not been fulfilled if the altar was still active.



Don’t go on your own to start destroying shrines, idolatry objects in your homes or village or towns. You may be a Christian, but you level may not warrant you to confront certain things.  You can’t take a new convert and plant him in the mist of the sins he repented from. There are powers and there are rules. Those who have given themselves as a living sacrifice to the lord may conduct prayers yet we advise not directly. If you must confront, you must act on divine instructions. When you become a born again, that’s when you have spiritual rights to fight evil foundational altars. You can’t wake up one morning or after reading this book and begin to destroy these things. You can attest to cases when after visiting compound to pray, attack comes. Everything you do with altars must come as a divine instruction. Pray, hear God either to go or not to go, wether to burn or not to burn.
I heard about a man of God who visited his village shrine and destroyed it with his prayer team, while on his way back to town he had and accident.
You can’t use small light in you to confront thick darkness. Imagine taking a candle light to thick forest, the breeze alone will quench the fire. But when you use searchlight, you have good advantage.
Raise great altars against evil altar, altars versus altar. You own righteous altar must be in place. Connect to great men of God, via their altars.
In the realm of the spirit there is a clear network of altars. The smaller altars network with the bigger and stronger ones. An individual’s personal altar links up with the community altar, and the altars of the community link with the overall altar ruling the territory or the nation. Abraham in Genesis 12 & 28 raised these kinds of altars at Bethel and Ai.


If you desire to have greater victory in your spiritual legislation, and to break out of these evil altars then begin to network with other “mighty men of God”. The bible says our body is the temple of the Holy Spirit. And in a temple there are two main altars, please take note of the altar diagrams shown. In your human temple, the first altar is your altar of material sacrifice and the second is altar of prayer/services.  These mighty men spend days in prayers and fasting, fortifying their spiritual altars and engaging in sacrificial seed sowing/giving.
You can connect to them with financial sacrifice, raising sacrifices to their altars. The altar at work in your life can determine how far you can go in life. The altar you connect to can provides a prayer shield for you. Through the corporate altars you can prevail against the enemy. God is building a people of power.
You have an obligation to build an altar that will bless and sustain the next generation.  As a church we have the power to open and shut the gates of heaven. Elijah did this in 1 Kings 17:1; 18:1-45. From your altar you can enforce God’s judgment on the workers of iniquity in your village.
Commitment to the things of God is as important as prayers. Jesus said, “seek ye first the kingdom of God and its righteousness, every other things will be added unto you”. This shows how important the kingdom assignment is. Today we have lackadaisical attitude towards the things of God.   If you’re assigned to sweep the floors, do it with joy knowing that you are not working for pastor but Christ. Please anytime you are doing something for the church, avoid complaining even if you were offended.
Prayer is the greatest instrument given to us by God. When we connect to the heart of God, we change situations. If you analyze your scriptures, you can see the effects of prayers. Do you know that you can change prophesies with prayers? Nevertheless, prayer is designed to change us first. That’s why before they biblical characters pray and win the favor of God, they repent, humble themselves and wail.
You must repent of the sins of your fathers, acknowledging the fact that you are a lawful captive. Also have in mind that even as a lawful captive God’s will it to see you free.
Isaiah 49:24
"Can the prey be taken from the mighty man, or the lawful captives of a tyrant be rescued?" Surely, thus says the LORD, "Even the captives of the mighty man will be taken away, and the prey of the tyrant will be rescued; for I will contend with the one who contends with you, and I will save your sons.…



 Revelation 5:1-10

1.               Demolish old altars and repent over idolatry.
 In raising an altar unto the Lord we must ensure that we are not building on an existing altar that was raised to Satan. That is why we begin with repentance. We must be very thorough. Repent first of your own personal sins and the sins of your forefathers. It must be identification repentance like Nehemiah, Daniel and Ezra did on behalf of their people.

2.               Stand as a Priest/King and plead for mercy.
Identify yourself as a king and priest of God (Rev. 5:10). Begin to appropriate what the scripture says in the book of 1 Peter 2:9 (But ye are a chosen generation ...) concerning you. Our priesthood is after the order of Melchizedec and Jesus Christ.

3.               Address the deity in the name of Jesus Christ, calling it by name.
 After taking a thorough repentance for sins committed, we have to breakdown evil altars and address existing altars, which hinder us. Using the name of Jesus Christ address with the Word of God the deity which was enthroned and throw down any existing altars calling them directly by name.
 Acknowledge the abomination and God’s right to punish the sin of idolatry on your part and on behalf of your people. Realize that every idolatrous altar has links with Satan. Realize also that the worship given to the deities behind those idolatrous altars which dates back many generations even to the fall of man is in actual fact the enthronement of evil by Satan.

 4.         Renounce every existing agreement between demons and those who built that altar.
Renounce every token, dedication, vow, or promise made to that god. Renounce any binding words spoken and deliberately reverse any which may have been placed as injunctions or sanctions against those who will refuse to worship these idols.

5.         Burn the tokens of the covenant. (Fetish items in your possession)
6.         Destroy the former priesthood.
 Remove their priestly garments and take away their staff of authority as well as their mandate to minister at those altars.

7.         Charge the whole of creation to bear witness to what you are doing.
When they entered into these evil covenants our ancestors would invite creation to take note of their deeds. The rivers, mountains, sun, moon and stars were called to witness the enactment of ordinances. Therefore you must also address them to bear witness to your act of reversing of those covenants. Every word must be renounced, reversed and nullified. This is how to render those words powerless and make them of no effect.
8.         Now you must raise a new altar to God.



1.         Locate a spot and make it a place of worship and consecration.
2.         Hallow it by pouring anointing oil, wine or water on it.
3.         Call upon the name of the Lord and ask the three to bear record on earth and in heaven to take                        note that you are raising an altar to Him on that spot.
4.         Name the altar e.g. an altar of consecration, an altar of remembrance, an altar of righteousness, an altar of restoration, an altar of mercy etc.
5.         Mark your altar. God directed Israel to use twelve stones to raise Israel’s national altar. You have to mark your altar with something memorable.


Only a person who is spiritually alive and qualified can raise an altar. When God begins to speak to people about altars, He wants to enter into a fresh covenant with them. He wants to visit the land. He wants to bring about changes. That is why we must keep the altars of our soul alive.
