A Message From Paula:
It used to be that no matter what I did, there were walls barricading me. I didn't understand the workings of the dark kingdom. Yes, I knew there was a devil and demons, but was clueless that they were organized and tactical. The dark kingdom is invisible so if it's out of sight, it's out of mind, right? Wrong. My mind (and spirit) sensed the invisible cohorts surrounding me with every endeavor of my life. They influenced whoever they could to ensure my defeat in any given situation. For example, a couple decades ago I was sued and though we proved our case plainly, once again, the magistrate sided with the evil-doers. Upon receiving the peculiar judgment against us, I called the magistrate and spoke directly with him asking how he could make such a judgment in light of the facts, and without shame he boldly proclaimed, "Because I can!".
This is how things went in all areas of my life but most prominently with my finances. I was always as hard working, qualified and reliable as the next guy but things would never work out in my favor. Yet I was a Christian that was highly favored? I sure wasn't seeing that. Why? How did the devil have free reign in my life despite my belonging to the Most High.
Long story short, God revealed the mastermind kingpin behind these dark clouds as the spirit of python in September 2009 - after I'd reached my end. But my biggest question at the time was how the spirit of python had any access to me since I belonged to God. I thought I was supposed to be protected from the enemy. How could python legally do anything to interfere with my life?
God opened my eyes and I began to understand. The bottom line was even though I was God's, I WAS OPERATING OUT OF FAITH IN DARKNESS and thereby giving the spirit of python a grand platform! Though I knew many truths of God in my mind and believed them with all my heart, my soul was locked in chains of doubt, abandonment, and confidence in the injustice I'd always known. So, this means I was divided and double minded - and we know what the Bible says about that. Yes, I was saved, but Jesus is the way and the truth and the life so alignment with Jesus is what's to our protection. So when your soul is insecure and feels abandoned (subconsciously) by God, you aren't truly aligned with Jesus because you don't fully believe Him. And, in a nutshell, your manifest reality always reflects what you believe. But just because you cognitively believe Christ is God in the flesh doesn't mean you believe He loves you. It doesn't mean you trust Him. This is where we fail to believe Him. This is where we're more confident in the master of illusion, the master of darkness. So this is what we see manifest more in our lives.
There's a LOT that went into getting this across to me - many experiential lessons. But today, the enemy doesn't score against me like he used to! I've become so much more one with THE TRUTH that python's platform has shrunk incredibly. Oh, he's always out there. He still has specific demons hard at work looking for ways to regain ground in my life in so much as he thinks is possible. But once you know and OWN truth, their efforts amount to being occasional faltering as opposed to constant defeat. Bottom line is my rejection of the lies that operated in my depths is what's defeated the enemy. So now the roles are reversed and python's the one stumped.
SO WHERE HAS IT GOT ME NOW?
I'm excited to report that injustices aren't my middle name any more. I'm no longer depressed, bed ridden, or suicidal - and haven't been since before 2009! I haven't been on a financial roller coaster since then, either... Instead of recovering from major setbacks and loss, things have been stable and even on the incline!
I'm a published author and have sold several thousand books/ebooks over the past five years. If python still had dominion over my life YOU WOULD NOT BE HERE READING MY INFORMATION AND GETTING FREE YOURSELF! He would have thwarted the publications of my books, interfered with the success of my site and even your finding it. I know all this for a fact. Let me prove it by telling you what happened with the first publication of The Spirit Of Python Unveiled:
The chapters, book cover and all else were finished and I was in the process of formatting the manuscript through an online software program. For some reason (eh-hmmm) the files would get disorganized, words would separate at the end of lines and continue on the next, paragraphs would separate with large gaps. No matter where I placed things such as a title chapter, for example, everything would go haywire. The more I'd fix it, the more things would get messed up. I worked on this day and night tirelessly but it would only get worse. Then the program would freeze and even shut itself down. I'd have to reboot the computer and reopen the program only to find it more butchered. I searched the internet for other publishing software to no avail - couldn't find anything I felt was workable despite the fact that there was. I was blind to it for some reason (eh-hmm). So this forced me to continue to duke it out with this program. Finally after about a hundred hours of non-stop battle and the program shutting itself down relentlessly, I was to the point of tears. I sat there with my head literally hanging low, my heart in my stomach and my eyes welling up with tears, not knowing what I could possibly do. Suddenly the Lord spoke. He said two simple words: "Take authority". I said, "Take authority? But YOU are here!" I could feel God's presence with me despite the problems and assumed, as I always had, that if God was on the scene, the devil couldn't prevail. Especially at that time because I was operating according to God's Kingdom policies which meant the enemy had no legal grounds. So the software going haywire, as far as I was concerned even despite my history seeing the darkness interfere, was just faulty software. Yet, here was God Himself standing there beside me saying, "Take authority". And when I asked why since He was here, He said, "Yes, I AM here and My angels have been battling demons all week trying to keep you from publishing this book that I've given you. Now help them! Take authority and command the enemy to take his hands off your property!"
As the Lord was saying this, I saw the battle in the spirit - the angels and demons surrounding me, fighting. Every time the demons would score, the program would shut down. Then my angels would help me get things to some order again only for the demons to score again. And I suddenly understood that just because the dark kingdom had no legal ground to interfere didn't mean they weren't going to try. Because they knew so long as I didn't take authority, they could keep causing trouble! So, I immediately lifted my head and cried, "I take authority over you foul spirits in the Name of Jesus! Take your hands off my property - because it's God's property - you have no legal grounds here!" And BOOM, I'm not exaggerating ONE BIT when I tell you - I rebooted my computer and the program and found the formatting of my manuscript somehow reassembled! I tweaked the final touches and my book was published within two hours! NO LIE!
So you see? Your reading this page right now demonstrates the defeat of darkness over my life.
