One of the sisters in Christ sent this to me. That it was extracted from “I believe in visions” by Kenneth Hagin. His thoughts on when a believer can cross the line and lose his or her salvation. I am sure you will find it so interest as I did.
“Now I will show you how these evil spirits get hold of people when they are allowed to,” the Lord said to me. Suddenly in the vision, I saw a woman, I immediately recognized her as being the former wife of a minister. I had been introduced to her and her husband on one occasion. Other than that, I didn’t know either of them and I had no communication with either of them in any way. I only knew that she had since left her husband.
“This woman was a child of mine,” the Lord said. “She was in the ministry with her husband. She was filled with the Spirit, and the gifts of the Spirit were operating in her life. One day an evil spirit came to her and whispered in her ear, ‘You are a beautiful woman. You could have had fame, popularity, and wealth, but you have been cheated in life by following in the Christian walk.’ The woman realized that this was an evil spirit and she said, ‘Get thee behind me, satan.’ The spirit left her for a period.
By and by the same spirit returned. He sat on her shoulder and whispered in her ear, ‘You are a beautiful woman, but you have been robbed by taking this lowly walk of Christianity and living a separated life.’ Again she recognized this as satan and said, ‘satan, I resist you in the name of Jesus,’ and her left her for a while.
But he came back again and sat on her shoulder, whispering the same things in her ear. This time she began to entertain these thoughts, for she liked to think she was beautiful. As she began to think along the lines the devil suggested to her, she became obsessed with that thinking.”
Then in the vision I saw the woman become transparent as glass, and I saw a black dot in her mind, “That dot represents the fact that she is obsessed in her thinking with this spirit,” the Lord said. “At first she was oppressed on the outside, but as she allowed the devil’s suggestion to take hold of her thoughts, her mind became obsessed. She wanted to think, ‘I am a beautiful woman. I could have wealth and popularity, but I have been robbed in life.’ Still, it wasn’t too late. She could have resisted; she could have refused to think those thoughts. Then the evil spirit would have fled from her and she would have remained free. But she chose otherwise.
Finally she left her husband and went out into the world, seeking fame and wealth which the devil offered. She took up with one man after another. After a time that thing got into her spirit.” In the vision I saw the black dot move from her head to her heart, and then the woman said, “I don’t want the Lord anymore. Just leave me alone.”
I said, “Lord, why are You showing this to me? Do you want me to pray for this woman? Do you want me to cast the devil out of her?”
“No, I don’t want you to pray and cast the devil out of her,” the Lord answered, because you couldn’t anyway. She wants that spirit, and as long as she wants it, she can have it.”
“Then why did you show this to me, Lord?”
“I have shown this to you for two reasons: first, so you could see how an evil spirit will get hold of a person, even a child of God, if they will let him; second, I want you to deal with that spirit who is operating through that woman and harassing and intimidating the ministry of her former husband.”
“How do I do that?” I asked. The minister was in the same state I was in, but the woman was in another state.
“There is no distance in the realm of the spirit,” the Lord said.
“Simply speak to that spirit and command him, in my Name, saying, ‘You foul spirit that is operating in the life of this woman (calling her name), that is harassing and embarrassing the ministry of the servant of the Lord (calling her husband’s name), I command you to desist in your operations and stop in your manoeuvres this moment.”
In the Spirit I said those words, and immediately that spirit ceased to operate through her to intimidate that minister. From that day forward the minister never again was troubled by her or that spirit.
“Lord, what will happen to her?” I asked.
“She will spend eternity in the regions of the damned, where there is weeping and gnashing of teeth,” He answered. And in the vision I saw her go down in to the pit. I heard her awful screams.
“This woman was your child, Lord. She was filled with your Spirit and had part in the ministry. Yet You said not to pray for her. I cannot understand this!”
The Lord reminded me of the following scripture:
“If any man sees his brother sin a sin which is not unto death, he shall ask, and he shall give him life for them that sin not unto death. There is a sin unto death: I do not say that he shall pray for it” (1 John 5:16)…….
