Binding the Mind Scrambling Spirit

1 med Res Enforcer Front CoverHey Everyone,

Today's a good post. It's a lot to take in but it's powerful to gain wisdom and understanding regarding our enemy.

Recently I've been listening to some audio books written by deliverance ministers and an interesting section was covered regarding unbelievers. It's a mind scrambling spirit.

I'll share some of my limited understanding about this beast and a prayer to pray for the unsaved in your life.

The mind scrambling spirit is a form of mind control, which is rooted in witchcraft. All control and manipulation are rooted in witchcraft. The scrambling spirit sits atop a person's head. In the spirit realm, people who see, describe this spirit to look like a small octopus whose tentacles reach down through the ears and eyes into the brain. WOW! 

I know!!

This spirit scrambles the thoughts of those it has access, thereby they are unable to process the words of life coherently and with understanding. This is why you can share God, scripture and testimonies with people and they remain unchanged. The individual will hear you and even repeat back what you said, but the truth becomes scrambled in their minds and hearts. They are unable to receive truth. 


However!!!  With Jesus, all things are possible, even for the darkest of those under mind control. I discovered a simple prayer to pray for those who live within our love, stewardship and jurisdiction. Pray the Armor prayer first, daily. I shared that last week.

Then pray this:

Father, in the name of Jesus,

I bind the demonic scrambler who is scrambling the thoughts in (insert name).

You demons binding (insert name) I take authority over you in the name of Jesus Christ, my Lord. I bind you in the name of Jesus. You cannot afflict (insert name) today. My house is committed to the Lord and is holy ground.  You are a trespasser and may not function here.  I bind you and command you to leave in the name of Jesus. 

At some point you may need to bind and rebuke the demon directly. This is prayer of persistence. One of our greatest spiritual disciplines is perseverance. Pray this in faith until breakthrough, no matter how long it takes. In Jesus name.

The next post is about standing in the gap for others. It's good also. Okay, I really need to hear from you. Is this the kind of content that will help you? Please talk to me in the comments. 

Love and blessings, Lynn

Do You Love Me?


Lately, everywhere I turn, I hear Jesus asking, “Do you really love me?” In passage after passage he says, “If you love me, you will obey my commandments.” John 14:15

“If you keep My commandments, you will remain in My love…This is My commandment: that you love one another as I have loved you…You are My friends if you do what I command you.” (John 15: 10, 12, 14)

“Everyone then who hears these words of mine and does them will be like a wise man who built his house on the rock…” (Matthew 7:24)

I sing about what a friend I have in Jesus, but do I truly obey him? Do I love my neighbor as myself?  As a demonstration of what it means to love your neighbor, Jesus told the parable of the Good Samaritan.  When was the last time I gave extensively of my time and resources to help a perfect stranger simply because they needed help?  Honestly, I’m far more likely to be like the priest and the Levite and walk by on the other side of the road, thinking either, “I’m too busy” or, “That person got themselves into the mess they’re in.”

I often act contrary to the leading of the Spirit, thinking to myself, God understands.  He will forgive my weakness this one time.  I even have people around me counsel that it’s OK because “we are saved by grace and not by works.”  But I know that Jesus didn’t save me just so I could go to heaven.  As much as he loves me, he loves the people around me.  If I am a member of the Body of Christ, if he is my Head, then it is up to me to do what he says, to carry out his will and not my own, by serving those around me “that they may see my good works and glorify my Father in heaven.” (Matthew 5:16.) The Church is not a place I go; it is the Body of Jesus himself, walking around on the earth, doing what he does.

There is a passage that has long been troubling to me.

Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you workers of lawlessness!’ (Matthew 7:23)

I wondered how someone could be doing these mighty works but not be doing the will of the Father.  The truth is, the one prophesying and driving out demons and performing miracles isn’t the human being at all, but the Holy Spirit working through that person.  Jesus calls them “workers of lawlessness,” in other words, those who disobey the commandments. Jesus doesn’t say, “If you love me, work miracles.”  He says, “If you love me, obey me.”

By this we can be sure that we have come to know Him: if we keep His commandments… By this we know that we are in Him:  Whoever claims to abide in Him must walk as Jesus walked. (1 John 2: 3, 6)

This “abiding in him” is spoken of in many places, but here it clearly states what that looks like.  It’s not about going to church, or reading a devotional every morning, or memorizing scripture, or praying a lot, or talking about my faith.  He tells me what it looks like throughout the gospels:

Walk as Jesus walked.  Take up my cross and follow him.  Deny myself.  Lose my life for his sake.  What does this mean for me, today?? Jesus changed the lives of the people around him.  He got up before dawn to spend time with the Father, and then spent the day teaching, healing, delivering, discipling.  There were no wasted moments scrolling through social media or worrying about how he looked. Everything he did and said had purpose and meaning. I’m a long, far cry from walking as he walked. If I confess my sins, he is indeed faithful to forgive me, but I don’t want to continually repeat the cycle of sin > confess > sin > confess.  I want to be his friend, to show my love, to obey the first time, every time.

About a year ago during a time of worship, I had a quiet nudge to take a literal step forward in the place I was standing, as a sign of taking authority over that place for the kingdom of God.  It was a smaller step than Neil Armstrong took on the moon, but it has played a much bigger role in my life.  Because as I took the step, I experienced a sense of myself in Jesus and Him in me that I had never felt before.  It has stayed with me and to this day, I know, I sense, when I am walking in a direction that is NOT where he would go.  Simple things like making a snide remark about a family member, or indulging a “harmless” habit, or keeping the truth to myself out of fear it won’t be accepted or understood.  I can see myself walking away from Jesus with each of these acts.  He’s still there, but I’m not abiding in him.

The solution is simple. I just need to repent, which means to change my mind and my direction.  Instead of walking away on a path of my choosing, I choose to walk toward him in the direction he wants me to go. When I do, I experience far more joy and peace than when I go my own way.

What does it mean to you, to walk as Jesus walked?  What do you find helpful? Tell us in the comments!

Where Does Death and Fear Hide?

A few days ago, I was driving home and across the street and down a couple of houses, I came face-to-face with Death and Fear. 

Take a look....

Death fear

There they were staring straight at me. And all I could think is, this 12-foot-tall representation of the ministry of satan, is no longer in hiding. Death, the skeleton, is prevalent everywhere. 

And fear... Look at this beast. Also 12 foot tall. Did you know its eyes light up at night? Sheesh. No wonder so many live in perpetual fear and affliction. These characters are now standing in the shadows in every neighborhood. And not just on Halloween.

They loom large and have real consequences. I pray with so many who are wrapped in fear. Let's push back against death and fear.

Everything about our Father is LIFE! And Jesus came to give LIFE and abundantly. We must speak life into our lives, our bodies, our relationships and communities.

Bless with life. Rebuke Death and Fear.

So, I rebuke these two characters every time I drive by this house. I hope to drive by soon and see one of both, face down on the ground. Just because some 5'4" blonde lady prayed. 

I would laugh with glee. 

Happy fall. Life in Life. Blessings and hugs, Lynn

Healing from Un-loved

Galatians 5 1 Freedom Inner Healing (1)
Hello my dear brothers and sisters,

Lynn Donovan, with you today. I’m feeling extra empathy and compassion for all of us who have walked the road of the unequally yoked or any long-term difficult relationship.

In a prayer session this week, I was praying with a friend, and uncovered an area of unhealed pain that needed the love of Jesus….. and needed my love.

You see, Jesus took me back to when I was newly married, within the first three years, to the moment reality came crashing in that my husband and I were at odds about this major part of my person, Jesus. I remember that moment clearly. I experienced devastation when that understanding hit me. And frankly, the reality that my husband didn’t care, or seem to care, that I was in pain, the devastation increased. Ugh!

It’s difficult to be transparent about this, as it’s a deeply personal moment. However, I’ve always chosen to be real with you because we learn together how to overcome pain?

Now here is the best part.

In my prayer time this week, I discovered that this was the moment where I became disappointed with myself. I realized that my fairytale wasn’t going to unfold as expected. This moment was the beginning of a lie that devil began to tell me that I was a disappointment to myself.

This is the moment when I began to unlove myself.

Ugh! I didn’t even know this pain and reality was inside. It was absolutely revelation from Jesus. Jesus then arrived to love on this young girl. And through this experience, He loved on me. I forgave myself for this disappointment. For the rebellion against God and not following His written Word. I forgave myself and acknowledged the difficulties this young woman faced and the deceit she lived in at the time.

I blessed her. And Jesus blessed me.

My love of self, found healing. And this morning when I woke, I’ve been surrounded by a simple peace. I feel whole unto myself. And I realized how much I truly love my husband, Mike.

My brother or sister, sit down with Jesus. (NO DISTRACTIONS). Ask Him if there was a place where disappointment and unlove entered in. Ask Him to reveal any roots to this pain and forgive yourself. Forgive others if needed. Love yourself. Bless yourself.

We are so hard on ourselves over our past mistakes. One of the great things I did in this prayer session was to forgive my young self for the choices she made. As my entire life has felt the consequences of her decisions. (And I realize it’s myself I’m speaking of, but that girl….. and the woman I am today, are very different people. Praise the Lord Jesus Christ.)

This process is inner healing. It is beautiful. It is necessary and it is FREEDOM.

It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery. Galatians 5:1

If you need inner healing, make a Healing Prayer Appointment with me. I am tender and full of compassion. Jesus will meet you where you are, and He will set you free also.

With great love and compassion, I greet you this day. Love, Lynn Donovan
