TOpic:DESTROYING THE ACTIVITIES OF MARINE KINGDOM
Texts: ( ISAIAH 49: 24 – 26) “Shall the prey be taken from the mighty, or the lawful captive delivered? But thus saith the lord, even the captives of the mighty shall be taken away, and the prey of the terrible shall be delivered: for I will contend with him that contendeth with thee, and I will save thy children. And I will feed them that oppress thee with their own flesh; and they shall be drunken with their own blood, as with sweet wine: and all flesh shall know that I the lord am thy saviour and thy redeemer, the mighty one of Jacob”.
(Job 26:5) “ Dead things are formed from under the waters, and the inhabitants thereof”.
Every spirits living in the water are known as marine spirits. Marine kingdom is the greatest kingdom of all evil demonic kingdoms. Marine kingdom is the most wicked, most populous, well organized kingdom , far away from other evil kingdoms, that exits in the Air, land and outside this planet. The headquarter of marine kingdom is located within India Sea. And Queen of India sea is the head of marine kingdom. While, Queen of the coast is next in command and she resides within the Atlantic ocean(both are also among the fallen evil forces from heaven before).
Marine evil spirits have greater influence over mankind on earth ; more than every other demonic evil spirits.It is because, about 70% of the world is covered by the sea(water); and that makes them to have greater influence on mankind.Also, mankind cannot do without water( water use-ages).
Every country, state or region, area, city, town, village, etc., have a marine evil spirit that is leading such a place and being assisted by other marine lower spirits. Such a leader could be a male or female evil marine spirit.
In every 100 cases of divorce taking place worldwide , about 96% of them are caused or being manipulated by marine kingdom evil forces. Marine kingdom are also responsible for the following problems affecting many mankind: accidents, shortage of blood in one’s body, bankruptcy/ sudden lost of business, sudden death, chronic spinsterhood / bachelorhood, sudden lost of pregnancy ( mis-carriages), barrenness, regular eating / drinking is the dream, constant swimming in the dream, demonic spiritual husband/ wife/ children problems. Also, marine human agents problems ( those they possessed) without the people knowing ;while fewer other knoweth, etc.
Marine evil forces also seizes people means of livelihood by storing them spiritually in their spiritual banks / prisons within the marine kingdom. While, the physical end result would be bad for such people as their means of livelihood would begin to fall or decline physically (bankruptcy).
Marine kingdom evil forces also have the ability to cage some careless people spirits within their kingdom.Especially ministers of God, in order for such a person not to be able to perform well in worshiping God/ rendering assistants to the children of God.
Types of marine evil spirits (demons)/ upon any mankind they possessed are as follows:
Celibate marine , marine Jezebel ( lust spirit of contamination), marine witchcraft, stone river marine, lake marine, tree marine, vampire marine and Dread locks marine ( leviathan spirit).
I will not elaborate them separately as they are very broad and also the breakdown knowledge of them is only beneficial to deliverance ministers . As they requires the knowledge for practical deliverance ministration (casting out of demons).

1. Constant swimming in the dream.

4. Transference of unholy spirits through sex with their agents. Also through fornication, adultery, bestiality, incest and other sex perversion acts.

Many may actually laugh at the notion of a person actually going through spiritual warfare. Those that do not have the mind of Christ may assume that you are just "going through the motions of life", it's Murphy's Law, bad luck, etc. You must understand that satan's tactics is not just to camouflage the TRUTH, but his main objective as stated in John 10:10 is nothing "but to steal, kill and destroy".
Some of you may who have recently given your life to Jesus Christ, or have been seasoned Christians wonder "what is the WORLD is going on in my life?". Questions that you ask yourself, your friends, or even God may go unanswered because the truth lies in YOU and is evident in the word of the Lord. The call God has on your life, and the deeper the anointing He has for you, will activate something in the spiritual realm, causing satan and his demons to attack you from every which way possible! So how do you know that you are fighting spiritual warfare? What are the most common red flags that a believer in the Lord Jesus Christ, is facing a battle that may not be seen by the naked eye? Here are some of the most common manifestations of spiritual warfare:
1. Attacks on your finances and income - The moment you totally surrender and give your life to Jesus Christ, you will begin to have financial trouble and difficulties. satan knows that you were a wealthy Christian that has a HIGH calling on your life to seek God's Kingdom and bring other's out of the fire...finances are a necessity to travel, minister, etc.
2. Attacks on your children, friends,and loved ones - The devil loves to go for the jugular! The closet people to you, the enemy will attack by causing death, acts of witchcraft, sickness, fights, bitterness, anger, divorce, etc. 1 Peter 5:8 states: "Be clear-minded and alert. Your opponent, the devil, is prowling around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour."
3. Attacks on your MIND! - What a better way can the spirits of darkness get you by getting into your mind? Without the mind, how can we survive? You may began to get lustful thoughts, thoughts of suicide and depression, you may feel as if no one loves you or God doesn't exist, etc. Colossians 33:2 states:"Keep your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on the earth." Isaiah 26:3 states: ""The steadfast of mind You will keep in perfect peace, Because he trusts in You." Most things that we think are other people intentionally hurting you is actually us hurting yourself. YOU can be your own worst enemy and satan knows that. Once satan has your mind...then he has YOU.
4. Attacks on your health and body - 1 Corinthians 6:19 states: "Don't you know that your body is a temple that belongs to the Holy Spirit? The Holy Spirit, whom you received from God, lives in you. You don't belong to yourselves." Do not find it odd or strange that you began to get sick with things that the doctor cannot diagnose or your illness has worsened. Sickness and disease slows you down physically and emotionally therefore causing you to focus on the physical manifestations rather than what God is trying to do in YOU.
The above mentioned attacks are just a few examples of what Christians must face during spiritual warfare. So how can you combat the tactics of the enemy? Read Ephesians 6:10-16! You are a true soldier in the Lord Jesus Christ. Never let anyone or anything distract you from God's purpose! Be blessed in Jesus name!
John 15:15- I'm no longer calling you servants because servants don't understand what their master is thinking and planning. No, I've named you friends because I've let you in on everything I've heard from the Father. -The Message
Lonely days are no fun. We all have them. Whether married, single, or divorced, you will have some lonely days. But it seems that some people have more lonely days than others. It seems that those with higher callings on their lives are usually people that struggle with loneliness. It's almost like God sets you apart or calls you out of unfruitful past friendships and relationships, and then keeps you alone to himself for a short period to work things out of you. Many of us were so dependent on a man or woman in our lives that we totally ignored God and couldn't connect with him like we needed to for our callings sake. So what did God do? Take everyone away from us for a season, so we can be with him alone. But where does the loneliness come from?
Loneliness usually comes when you have developed a need for others. I know many will agree with this, because when you have spent your life living for others, depending on people to validate you, chasing friends and friendships, always needing people around to make you feel wanted or needed, then when you are suddenly alone, you feel very lonely. But if you suffer with any of these issues, loneliness is what you need! Not forever, but at least for a season.
You see, Jesus wants to be that friend you are searching for. Don't you know that God put a need for himself in your life? Your purpose lies in him, so you must know him to know YOU! Your reason for being lies in him, so you must know him to know why you are you! And when you spend your life chasing friends or using people to find yourself, all you end up doing is having a bunch of one sided relationships, or failed relationships because you are searching for answers in the wrong places. And loneliness becomes a plague to you even though being alone can be an asset. Jesus said in the Word that he is your friend and he will not leave you comfortless. Read John chapter 14 and 15 and you will see that his concern is you. He wants you to be his friend and find yourself in him! So the next time you are feeling lonely or all alone, rejoice because he is working the false friendships and relationships out of you and working on his relationship with you!....

and the Root Causes of Fear
By Doris Wagner
The first meaning is "reverence or awe." Scripture tells us to "fear God." I must confess that I find this somewhat lacking in our Church culture today. I haven't figured out all of the reasons, but perhaps some folks haven't been taught enough about His greatness, holiness, power, love, knowledge, presence, forgiveness, and on and on. I feel many lack a true reverence and awe of God. If they really loved God and kept His commandments, there would be little opening for Satan to take advantage of them, hence little need for deliverance. God's commands are given to us out of love and for our own good.
The second meaning is "to be startled." This reflects the sudden jolt felt by a person when a loud noise, such as a horn blast from a nearby semi-truck, warning of immediate danger, occurs.
The third meaning is "that which causes flight." This happens when there is a healthy fear of some dangerous thing, such as a rattlesnake – truly enough to make one head off in the opposite direction with great speed. Being startled is a sudden fear of harm that calls for immediate action.
The fourth translation of fear comes from the Greek word phobeo, from which we get the word "phobia." This time it means "to have a sudden gripping fear, alarm, be scared, frightened, dismayed and filled with dread, intimidated, anxious and apprehensive." It is this fourth type of fear that can be troublesome at times. It can stick with a person for a long time. Fears can also be specific. For example, we have a daughter who developed a fear of enclosed places, especially flying in an airplane. She seriously dreaded enclosed places where she would be confined for a period of time.
In dealing with a person who has a gripping, constant, debilitating fear, the first thing we ask is "What exactly is the fear and when did it start?" A huge culprit at the root of many such fears is trauma. As a matter of fact, this is what happened with our adult daughter. It did not make sense that a missionary kid who spent countless hours in lengthy overseas and domestic travel should have a fear of flying. So upon probing, we discovered why she was afraid of enclosed places.
This fear cropped up when she was accidentally locked in a walk-in freezer where she had been called to do some welding. (Yes, I said welding! She is an auto mechanic and welder by choice.) She panicked, but then was rescued in due time. As a result of the trauma she could not stand being in an enclosed place again. I prayed, addressing the spirit of trauma that had entered during the panic attack when she was in the freezer. I commanded the spirit of fear to leave, in the name of Jesus. It did.
We recently had occasion to travel with her from Denver to Philadelphia (a three-hour plane flight) and I asked her how she felt. She said, "Not only was I not afraid, but I really enjoyed the trip!" Clearly, it was a case of a spirit of fear that had attached itself to that severe trauma, but it had to go when it was found out and was commanded to leave, in the name of Jesus.

A second common entry point for a spirit of fear is the trauma caused by being victimized. I have had to learn far more than I care to about violence and trauma caused by actions such as assault with a deadly weapon, rape, and child and sexual molestation. These kinds of experiences often leave the victim filled with many different demons that have taken advantage of that traumatic experience. Let me name a few that I have met along the way: fear of the dark, anger, violence, unforgiveness, bitterness, hatred, a man or woman-hating spirit, lust, severe rejection, self-hatred, a desire to die, and a myriad of fears depending upon the circumstances of the trauma.
When another person is responsible for the trauma, Satan takes further advantage of the situation by locking those emotions into fear, unforgiveness, bitterness, hatred, and anger. These conditions often prevail for the rest of the victim's life if deliverance and inner healing do not take place. What's worse yet is that the demons attached to the trauma often entice the victim into victimizing others in the same way. Often victims become so distraught that they resort to suicide as hopelessness overtakes them.

The first, and very difficult step, for the victim to take is forgiveness. Forgiveness does not condone the action, it simply removes the dreadful burden of pain from the victim. Forgiveness is a mighty weapon in deliverance. When forgiveness is extended, the above-mentioned demons must leave when they are commanded to do so, in the name of Jesus. Then, inner healing of the wounded soul can take place through prayer.
A third major entry point for spirits of fear that I have encountered is involvement in witchcraft and the occult. This can be caused by curses of witchcraft or freemasonry, or by the lies that the victim believes when told that they can never leave the occult because they have made an eternal choice by their involvement. Fear of leaving behind occult friends, practices and vows often keeps individuals in bondage, especially to fear.
The good news is that nothing is impossible with God. He has given us the tools to set captives free from spirits such as fear. They can be dealt with and dispatched. Our daughter will tell you that life is much more enjoyable being free from her fear of flying.

When in sorrow
When men fail you
When you have sinned
When you worry
When you are in danger
When God seems far away
When your faith needs stirring
When you are lonely and fearful
When you grow bitter and critical
When you feel down and out
When you want peace and rest
When the world seems bigger than God
When you want Christian assurance
When you leave home for labor or travel
When your prayers grow narrow or selfish
When you want courage for a task
When you think of investments and returns
If you are depressed
If your pocketbook is empty
If you are losing confidence in people
If people seem unkind
If discouraged about your work
If self pride/greatness takes hold
If you want to be fruitful
For understanding of Christianity
For a great invention/opportunity
For how to get along with fellow men
For Paul's secret to happiness
For dealing with fear
