"I confine and restrict the devil and his demons from deploying and activating against me. I renounce and repent of any sin, entry points or legal rights that I have opened up in my life that have given the devil a foothold. I rebuke the adversary and his plan of action against me. I speak and decree that your orders are rescinded and abolished, in Jesus' name. I incinerate the blueprints of hell against me. I call forth the fire of God to burn up every written instruction and order in the demonic realm against my life, in the name of Yahweh. I interrupt the plans of the enemy to steal, kill and destroy. I claim and command, I have abundant life (John 10:10)." - Kathy DeGraw
At this point the demons would be willing to pay cash money for her to just stop talking, Now, Kathy thinks, as the Sons of Thunder once did, that she con command the fire of God to come forth! In doing show she also fails to ironically see what John 10:10 is actually saying. It is a popular verse among false teachers and they all get it wrong. The enemy in this verse is not the devil. Seriously, go read the verse in context and you will see that the enemy Jesus is speaking about is false teachers! How fitting that false teacher can never see that before teaching falsely about the verse. Listen beloved, we have had a good time at Kathy DeGraw's expense here but I do not want people to miss how dangerous these teachings and beliefs are. It denigrates the power of God and usurps His sovereignty. There is a marked difference between praying to Jesus for healing and declaring that you have the power to heal yourself! Prayer develops our relationship with Christ and also keeps Him as the primary and only source for what we need, even if sometimes the answer is no. Declaring and decreeing nonsense like this sets up false expectations in the hearts of people. When our loved one still contracts COVID or God forbid dies, who are we going to blame if we had bought into the power of Kathy DeGraw? This kind of heresy also creates an army of Charismaniacal super-Christians who spend less time in scripture than they do in believing their own press. The key verses today tell a great story about just such a band of over-hyped and leveraged people who ran around thinking they could command and control demons. They were highly religious people because it says they were the sons of a High Priest. So, they knew the show they had to put on. They knew the dramatic, authoritative, and commanding tones they needed to employ. Just like Kathy DeGraw does. One day however, the demons answered them. Oops. Now I do not know how bad the beating is that you received that you ended up naked but it sure seems like they deserved it. Do not downplay what Kathy DeGraw is doing here. She is playing with forces she does not understand, so she can peddle her merchandises online. Jesus has the power. Not us. Mercifully, Kathy DeGraw finishes:
"I abolish and completely cast out spirits of worry, anxiety, fear, panic and torment. I have been given a spirit of power and love, not fear (2 Tim. 1:7). I will walk in the strength of the Lord and the faith He has given me. I speak and decree that my prophetic destiny is set in motion. I will not be detoured or delayed in my prophetic kingdom assignment, in the name of Jesus!" - Kathy DeGraw
Notice the one thing she left out of the verse she quoted? God gives us a spirit of power, love and a sound mind! Perhaps deep down she knows she has engaged in crazy talk for the past ten minutes. She is not an apostle, nor a prophet. She is certainly not a Prophetic Deliverance Minster. She is the rogue huckster the bible warns us about who does not seem to care that God is watching. I know there are well-intended yet poorly taught Charismaniacs out there who will balk at this discernment teaching but too bad. The bible says what it says. This reminds me of charlatans like Todd White who claims God has given him the power to heal people but instead of seeking out hospital patients dying from cancer he stalks people in public parks who might have the old "one leg longer than the other" disease. Please. Stop. Wait, I know. I command that there will be a shifting in the atmosphere to reveal an open heavens displeased with your lying tongue. So I bind that lying tongue and declare and decree that no longer shall the church be subject to your nonsense. I take authority over the financial system that supports your e-courses and demand that it collapse now! I"this is exhausting. I think I will just pray for discernment for the sheep and repentance for Kathy DeGraw. In Jesus name.
