Mike Smith of Hardcore Christianity.
Hope all is well with you all today. This is just a journal post. Catching up.
First of all, glory to God Almighty and thank You LORD JESUS, for bringing amazing new people into my life! I had been walking alone in the wilderness this entire year but a couple weeks ago The Lord brought some wonderful men and women of God who are on FIRE for Jesus into my world! New friendships are developing. I am blessed beyond measure! Praise God!
It all began a few days before my birthday when The Lord led a Sister in Christ to reach out to me after I had posted a prayer request in a Facebook prayer group about needing help. My words were something like this, “Sister needs prayer. Satan has me in a choke-hold, only Jesus can save me.” So, I would up in a chatroom group about deliverance. I had no idea what would happen. I assumed they were going to pray for me if I showed up. I had it in my mind that I was not going to go.
After the weekend was over on that Monday, thirty minutes before the meeting began, The Holy Spirit quickened in me and I remembered it was time for the group. I got there and it was amazing, I was not the only one receiving deliverance that night. I was on webcam and the Brethren/deliverance team called out multiple spirits and went to war for me to be freed. It wasn’t until a Brother led me to ask The Holy Spirit to break my heart that I had a breakthrough. A few seconds later I began weeping uncontrollably as The Spirit of God touched me.
I’m a work in progress. I am learning that deliverance is a process, not a one time deal. There is more to come. I am still dealing with a strongman or heavy demon that is very stubborn and will not leave. It is very frustrating because this spirit attacks my body anytime day and night. I’m thinking this is one like Jesus says that only comes out by prayer and fasting as in Matthew 17:21.
I have learned that when demons are cast out they come out in the forms of yawning, burping, coughing up or spitting, maybe some other ways. I have experienced all of these. I had no idea the roots of the problems in my life were spiritual!
By the way, I am NO LONGER BIPOLAR! That’s a spirit! I am still taking medications right now. Do not ever go off your meds without consulting your doctor and as led by The Lord because your flesh will react as it is used to having them. There are spirits attached to almost everything! Mental illnesses, pain, epilepsy, trauma, all else. You CAN BE FREE!
Christians can have demons. I tried to explain that to a Brother in Christ that I haven’t talked with in months and he didn’t agree or get it at first. I didn’t either before. I did NOT believe in deliverance ministry. UNTIL IT HAPPENED TO ME… I just thought that only people in the world who did very wicked things could be possessed by demons. Truth is, we as Christians can have demons as well. In our members. Our spirit is saved by God and though The Holy Spirit of God dwells within us, our flesh and our minds/will and emotions are not saved like the part of us that lives on.

Demon Buster is awesome with many, many prayers and spiritual warfare help. Adjust your speakers if need be because music will play when you go to the site.
God is teaching me to trust Him. I believe that is the major point of this trial if not one of the most major. But we cannot figure Him out. Then there’s the getting rid of my pride. I did not realize that my heart had hardened over time and there’s so much pain beneath that I have been ignoring and healing is needed. The MAIN REASON I am going through this is because of the open door I created with sin. There are consequences to sin. As a Child of God, I am being chastened. However, in the process, I am learning more and more about casting out demons, deliverance and spiritual warfare, and that the WHOLE BIBLE IS REAL TODAY! The churches are teaching that all of these are no longer for today’s world, but I have witnessed them. This is real! Jesus spoke the TRUTH and this is TRUTH for TODAY’S WORLD also!!!
Mark 16:17-18 (KJV)
17 And these signs shall follow them that believe; In my name shall they cast out devils; they shall speak with new tongues;
18 They shall take up serpents; and if they drink any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them; they shall lay hands on the sick, and they shall recover.
I want to be a part of this Christianity that you can experience! Miracles, signs, and wonders. Showing the world the truth and that JESUS is real! The BIBLE is real! Cover to Cover!!! I encourage you to check this out for yourselves. Important note: DO NOT CAST DEMONS OUT OF SOMEONE WHO IS NOT BORN AGAIN! It will do them harm. They must be born again.
I’m taking this thing one step at a time. If you have found yourself in a similar situation and would like more information, just message me at the “Drop me a line” tab at the top of my blog. God bless!
An amazing deliverance ministry I came across online. Still checking it out myself. Blessed in Jesus’ Name!
Excerpt from the site:
“Our ministry is dedicated to helping individuals who are afflicted by mental illness, physical illness, emotional illness & spiritual oppression. Our goal is to promote awareness to the international Christian community of the need to return to the true, accurate presentation of the Gospel by reintroducing mental health counseling, healing, deliverance, inner healing & the Baptism of the Holy Spirit to the Christian churches. Jesus called these ministries “miracles” (Mt. 12:28, Mk. 16:17). Bro. Mike is a certified professional counselor with 35+ years experience and Sister Karen is a licensed professional teacher with 24+ years experience. She is also a notary and licensed realtor.
