Scripture: Romans 8:31-38

This sermon is for those who have deep rooted problems with no solution in sight. It takes you to the roots and tentacles of your birth and cleanses spiritually with dramatic results.

Please feel free to post your thoughts or experiences on this discussion blog.

Tonight we deal with another very important area of deliverance again. The bondages that can take place on a child due to the support paraphernalia they were born with. There are three areas of the support system that keeps a baby while its developing in its mother’s womb. All three of them are subject to evil manipulations of the Enemy.

A sister who is a medical doctor, went childless and unmarried for 50 years before it was discovered that her placenta had never been buried, but had been hung in the attic of their house on the instructions of a witch-doctor in her village.

A nurse was accosted by security guards as she was taking out of the hospital a large bag full of placentas and umbilical cords. On interrogation, she confessed that she takes them to her coven where they use it to initiate the children who own it into witchcraft. The ones whose spiritual make up is aggressive because of their praying parents, they throw into the river so that the children will be connected to evil marine manifestations.

What is the placenta and what does it do?

The placenta has been described as a pancake-shaped organ that attaches to the inside of the uterus and is connected to the fetus by the umbilical cord. The placenta produces pregnancy-related hormones, and is responsible for working as a trading post between the mother’s and the baby’s blood supply. Small blood vessels carrying the fetal blood run through the placenta, which is full of maternal blood. Nutrients and oxygen from the mother’s blood are transferred to the fetal blood, while waste products are transferred from the fetal blood to the maternal blood, without the two blood supplies mixing.

The placenta is expelled from the uterus in a process called the after-birth.

What is the umbilical cord and what does it do?

The umbilical cord is the life-line that attaches the placenta to the fetus. The umbilical cord is made up of three blood vessels: two smaller arteries which carry blood to the placenta and a larger vein which returns blood to the fetus. It can grow to be 60 cm long, allowing the baby enough cord to safely move around without causing damage to the cord or the placenta.

After the baby is born, the cord is cut the remaining section will heal and form the baby’s belly button.

What is the amniotic sac and what does it do?

The amniotic sac is filled with the amniotic fluid. This sac is your baby’s home, gymnasium, and protection from outside knocks, bumps, and other external pressures. The amniotic sac allows the fetus ample room to swim and move around which helps build muscle tone. To keep the baby cozy, the amniotic sac and fluid maintain a slightly higher temperature than the mother’s body, usually 99.7 F.

At week 10, there is around 30 ml of fluid present. The amniotic fluid will reach it’s peak around weeks 34-36 at about 1 liter. When your water breaks, it is this sac that ruptures and this fluid that leaves the body. Your baby’s life is still being supported by the umbilical cord, and you should be meeting your baby soon!

Are the placenta, umbilical cord, and amniotic sac different when dealing with multiple births?

Identical twins often share the same placenta, usually have separate amniotic sacs, and always have their own umbilical cords. Non identical twins have separate placentas, amniotic sacs, and umbilical cords. We can see then how important these support items to the baby and the mother. They are so close to the baby that they are like the baby in spiritual importance.

Things can happen in the womb before birth In Genesis 25: 21-24 we see what happened to one who was to become a usurper 21 Isaac prayed to the LORD on behalf of his wife, because she was childless. The LORD answered his prayer, and his wife Rebekah became pregnant. 22 The babies jostled each other within her, and she said, “Why is this happening to me?” So she went to inquire of the LORD.

23 The LORD said to her, “Two nations are in your womb, and two peoples from within you will be separated; one people will be stronger than the other, and the older will serve the younger.”

24 When the time came for her to give birth, there were twin boys in her womb. 25 The first to come out was red, and his whole body was like a hairy garment; so they named him Esau. 26 After this, his brother came out, with his hand grasping Esau’s heel; so he was named Jacob.

Ecclesiastes 12:6-7 (New International Version) says 6 Remember him—before the silver cord is severed, and the golden bowl is broken; before the pitcher is shattered at the spring, and the wheel broken at the well, 7 and the dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit returns to God who gave it.

The umbilical cord is like the silver cord that links the child to life. It is very important and is the link to ALL things spiritual ad physical in the life of the baby to be born.

Curses and shock or trauma on the mother can transfer evil spiritual activators or open doors to demonic influences in unborn children through these support paraphernalia.

Things also happen after the baby is born from the mother. Most people are so carried away with the birth of the new born that they do not bother about what happens to the afterbirth. Christians need to be alert. According to 1 Peter 5:8 (New King James Version) 8 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.

Most times, the devil waits for these support systems to be delivered out of the mother and while the mother is in her weak state (the time of birth and labor is usually a mother’s weakest spiritual state), and other family members are carried away with the joy of the addition, his agents collects and then go and use them for evil activities calculated to disrupt the life, glory, stars and destiny of the unsuspecting child.

There are different ways to know when your placenta, umbilical cord or amniotic fluid have been tampered with for negative results;

  • When it is like the heavens are completely blocked and there is no way out at all.
  • When you keep on living a life that is identical to that which your mother lived and only the negative aspects of her life manifest in yours.
  • If anything you want to do or carry out with your spouse is always known to your mother when you didn’t tell her.
  • When you can easily discern soul ties to your mother such that when it is time to marry, you cannot separate yourself from her apron strings either you are male or female
  • When you must still borrow money from your mother before you can do the most basic things
  • When you are experiencing a continuous barrage of issues and problems and it looks like it will never end.
  • When you just cannot make any headway in life, keeping running around in a vicious cycle.
  • When your mother gave birth to you easily, but you are having problems doing the same.
  • When it is obvious that someone else is using your glory to prosper while you are living like a pauper.
  • When it looks like you are tied to a post like a goat and you have limitations (can’t go beyond a certain level)
  • When you display an inordinate attraction for the opposite sex constantly, but not for normal relationships but for immoral or ungodly ties.

Romans 8:31-38
31 What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? 32 He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him up for us all, how shall He not with Him also freely give us all things? 33 Who shall bring a charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. 34 Who is he who condemns? It is Christ who died, and furthermore is also risen, who is even at the right hand of God, who also makes intercession for us. 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 As it is written:

“ For Your sake we are killed all day long;
We are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.”[c]

37 Yet in all these things we are more than conquerors through Him who loved us. 38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life, nor angels nor principalities nor powers, nor things present nor things to come, 39 nor height nor depth, nor any other created thing, shall be able to separate us from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
We will now pray some prays to receive deliverance from these bondages. May God show mercy to us all in Jesus name. Amen.

We will be praying all these prayers while laying our hands on our belly-buttons.

What is a cage?

According to the Webster’s dictionary, a cage is an enclosure. In most cases, it looks like a box made with metal wire or net. Cages are specifically made for the purpose of trapping and confining birds and animals.

Cages come in different sizes. The size is of the animal you want to trap or confine determines the size of the cage. The cage you put hummingbird in is going to be smaller than the cage you put an eagle in. A rat’s cage will be obviously smaller than a bear’s.

Factors determining the size and consistency of physical cages apply for spiritual cages. Spiritual cages are spiritual devices that are used to trap and hold people in confinement. These cages come with spiritual wires, nets and iron bars.

Human beings as well as the things that belong to them are kept in these unseen cages. That means a person’s finances can be caged. So can one’s general progress, health, marriage and academic career.

In Jeremiah 5:25-26, we read a very troubling message from the Lord: “For among my people are found wicked men: they lay wait, as he that setteth snares; they set a trap, they catch men.”

Among people who were supposed to be Israelites, God found those that he described as wicked men. What did they do? The verse says “they lay wait as he that setteth snares, they set a trap,” but this time they didn’t catch birds or rats. They caught men.

Life in the cage. What sort of things does a person that is spiritually caged up experience? To understand this better, let’s go from the known to the unknown. What does a bird in a cage experience? What they experience in the physical is what a caged up person experiences in the spiritual.

1. They can move but only within a certain radius.

The person that is in a spiritual cage has the ability to move but only within a certain radius. They make progress but with serious limitations. Have you ever seen an animal in a cage? It moves, doesn’t it? How far does it go? It can only go within the realms its captor has set for it.

The purpose of demonic cages is to say, “you can go this far but no farther.” That is why you see some men and women, no matter how hard they try, they can only achieve up to a point. All efforts after that point end in frustration.

I know of a man who went to medical school and graduated as a medical doctor. Unfortunately his medical certificate was caged. He could not pass his board examination. Each time he sat for it, he failed by one point. He had to abandon the medical field to set up a cleaning business.

If you’ve ever been to the zoo you will notice that caged animals have the freedom to move around only within the confinement of the cage. They desire to be like other animals roaming around in the wild but they cannot because of the “gates of brass and bars of iron” that surround them.

When you see a person making little progress in life, it may very well be due to the presence of a spiritual cage.

This evil can affect a business. When a business is caged, it will only make limited progress. It may be a ministry. The ministry is making progress but alas! It is a very limited prepress. It may affect a person in his academics. He is making progress, but it is little progress. It may be a person on his job. Everybody else is being promoted and given a salary increase, but his own will never be commensurate with his qualifications. Why? There may be a spiritual cage over his life.

What the enemy does to a caged individual is to draw a spiritual circle around him. He is only allowed to operate within that circle. Every blessing outside that circle is kept out of his reach.

PRAYER POINT: Every demonic invisible line that has been drawn around my life; be erased by the blood of Jesus.

PRAYER POINT: Every demonic restriction placed upon my life; receive the fire of God.

2. They see freedom but never experience it.

There is a second problem with spiritual cages. Animals inside them can see through them because they are not totally covered up. They see other animals roaming free but can never be like them. If they are birds, they are healthy enough to fly like other birds but cannot. If they are animals, they are healthy enough to run like other animals, but the cage will not allow them.

The same holds true for those who are spiritually caged. They see freedom but never taste it. They see other people doing what they could do, having what they could, going where they could go but some invisible power restrains them from breaking free to be like others. Their daily cry is; “if I can just break through these barriers, I can have freedom to move on in life.” Unfortunately all they do is see it but they can’t have it. They desire it but can’t possess it. Such people are the most frustrated on the face of the earth. They carry their frustration to their job, to their church, business and homes. They snap at everybody, they get angry with everybody because they are frustrated.

I took my children to the zoo several years ago. We went around the zoo until finally we got to the lion’s cage. The lion paced back and forth within the confines of the cage. It moved, but only within the radius his captors allowed him. It stared angrily at all the people outside its cage. Suddenly, he jumped up and charged towards where the people were hitting the walls of the cage where I was standing. I felt sorry for the poor animal. I told my children, “Not only is this animal angry, it’s hungry, too. Let’s go home.”

As we left the zoo I began to meditate about how spiritually caged people behave. If care is not taken, they become mean spirited, short tempered and walking time bombs. It is a tough thing to see freedom and not be able to experience it. Unfortunately that is the lot of those whose lives have been caged by the enemy. They have what it takes to fly but their wings have been clipped. They have what it takes to run but their legs have been amputated. They have what it takes to walk but they can only crawl. Their ability to fly, to run and to walk has been taken away from them by the power of the cage.

When a man’s life is caged, he will have a Ph.D. but will only be offered the job of someone that has an Associate’s degree. A man that has a B.S. will be offered the job of a high school diploma holder. Why? Because his B.S degree might have been caged. He has a legitimate degree in his hand but he can’t use it.

Degrees get caged, ideas get caged, intellect gets caged, and things that can help better your lot in life can be caged.

I heard the story of a dear Christian sister that perfectly illustrates my point. This lady is a very intelligent woman. She holds a Ph.D. degree. Not only was she endowed with a high level of intelligence, she was also a very beautiful woman. From the top of her head to the soles of her feet, she had no blemish whatsoever.

What was mysterious about her though, was that no man wanted her as wife. She had what most men are looking for in a woman, yet no one was interested in her. So, she began to ask God why her situation was such. She discussed her plight with her pastor who told her that he believed her ability to get married must have been caged by agents of the powers of darkness.

Dear reader, if in the natural, things are not working out well for you when they ordinarily should, then there is a spiritual problem somewhere. You might have been caged. If you should be doing well in school but you are not, if you should be doing well in business but you are not, if nothing is medically wrong with you, yet you cannot get pregnant, it is very possible that you are bumping against “gates of brass and bars of iron.” In other words, you might be operating inside a cage.

If your situation is as described, you need to set time apart for serious fasting and praying to find out from God the cause of your problem.

That was exactly what the Christian sister did. She went to God with fasting and prayers to find out the what, where, who and when of the cage.

She prayed, “Oh God, I am a beautiful girl, men should be lining up in front of me; why don’t I see anybody? Oh God, you have given me a good educational qualification, which should be a plus; on top of it all, I am your child and you have promised to give me whatever my heart desires. I have long desired to get married but no one is forthcoming. O Lord, show me what is going on, in Jesus name.”

Suddenly, God showed her the vision of a bottle. The more she prayed, the more the vision persisted. She began to wonder; “What does a bottle have to do with me not being married?” She went to her pastor and narrated the vision to him. Being an experienced deliverance minister, the pastor was able to easily make a connection between the bottle and her marriage. He told her; “Your marriage has been caged and a bottle was used as part of the ceremony to cage you. Go to your father and ask him if he knows anything about it.”

In obedience, she went to her dad saying; “Dad, I have been praying for some time now to get married but each time I pray, I see a bottle. Do you have any idea what that might signify?”
On hearing that, the father put his hands on his head and said, “Oh my! The bottle, yes, the bottle.” She asked, “What do you mean by that, dad?”

The father then said, “When you were born, you turned out to be the most beautiful girl that anybody in our family has ever seen. Your grandfather was concerned that with your kind of beauty, boys will not let you get out of elementary school before they impregnate you and ruin your academic career. So he suggested that we cage that area of your life. To do that, we put some charms together and demonically caged your ability to get married into a bottle. The bottle was kept under your grandfather’s bed and has been there for over thirty years now. The bottle was kept upside down and unless it is reversed, you will never be able to get anyone to marry you. Our plan was to reverse it after your Ph.D. But we completely forgot about it.”

Prayer point: Every area of my life that has been turned upside down, be turned right side up in the name of Jesus.

Prayer Point: Every demonic container housing my destiny, collide with the rock of ages in Jesus Name.

The lady went to her grandfather’s room where she found the bottle as her father said. She brought it to her pastor and after sessions of praying and fasting, it was broken and the contents were set on fire. By that simple spiritual exercise, the gates of brass were broken and the bars of iron were melted by the fire of God.

I am happy to let you know that the Christian sister is happily married now. Are there unanswered questions in your life? Are you asking, “why?” and cannot find an acceptable answer? Are you unable to have what you ordinarily should have? Are you unable to do what others like you are able to do? There may be a cage somewhere in your life that must be opened before you can have your desired victory.

3. They cannot effectively respond to whatever is done against them.

You can throw a stone at a bear in a cage and it will just look at you. As strong as a lion is, if a stone is thrown at it, it cannot fight back. Even if the animal wants to fight back, it is restricted from doing something. The bars of iron make him helpless.

There is a feeling of utter helplessness when a person is in a cage. Folks will do things to you that they ordinarily should not and you cannot defend yourself. People will take advantage of you, infringe on your fundamental human rights and you cannot do anything. Life in the cage is one of utter helplessness.

I have written extensively about the activities of spirit husbands and spirit wives in my book; A Woman’s Worst Nightmare. I highly recommend this book to those who have sexual encounters in their dreams.

There was a woman who was once caged by her spirit husband. She was not allowed to marry because of this demonic manipulation. She tried and tried to no avail. Finally she got engaged to a man who she finally hoped to marry. Suddenly, she developed a male organ beside her female organ.

She became helpless and embarrassed. In desperation she went to see a doctor who told her that the only way out was surgery. On the day of the surgery, she got into the operating room only to find out that the male organ she came to surgically remove had disappeared. The surgery was cancelled, but on her way back home, the male organ reappeared again.

What can you do in a situation like that? In her helplessness she ran to the Lord for deliverance and she was wonderfully delivered.

It is therefore true that those who are in cages are too helpless to effectively respond to things done against them.

4. They depend on others for sustenance.

Animals in the cage do not know what it means to be independent. They depend on people for their daily needs. A little peanut here for the captured squirrel; a little banana there for the captured monkey, a little carrot here for the caged rabbit. That is how life in the cage is. You have to depend on others for sustenance. Whatever is thrown at you, you have to take it. Like they say in Africa, “A beggar has no choice.”

Let me illustrate the point this way. Somebody comes from Africa or the Islands to the United States. He applies for the green card that will enable him stay in the States legally. He is qualified for the adjustment of status. Under normal circumstances, within one hundred and twenty days he should hear something from government authorities.

If his green card is caged by the enemy, what others get easily becomes an uphill battle for him. Mysteriously, his application gets lost in the mail; hence there is no official record of his application. While he is waiting to hear from the authorities, he gets out of status, so becomes an illegal alien.

Instead of voluntarily returning to his country of origin he decides to stay in the States. Since he needs to eat, drink and clothe himself, he goes to look for a job. He finds it difficult to get a job because every employer is asking for a work permit. Finally he finds an employer who asks him “Where is your work permit?” He replies, “I have none.” The employer then offers to pay him a dollar an hour instead of the minimum wage. He is asks, “Will you take the job?” He replies, “A beggar has no choice, after all, half bread is better than none. I gladly will take the job.” So the employer illegally offers him the job, paying him next to nothing.

That is how life in a cage is. You are hindered from having what you ought to have. You depend on others for sustenance. You are taken advantage of but can do nothing about it.

The guy in my illustration may be working in a gas station or a restaurant. His equals will be bringing their Porches and Lexus and Mercedes Benz to the gas station. He will be filling it up with gas for them. Unfortunately he cannot hide from them because he is the only attendant on duty. He pumps the gas for his old schoolmates and they give him tips of one or two dollars and he says, “Thank you, sir.”

Spiritual cages will make you settle for half bread when you are actually destined to own a bakery. These cages will make you say “sir” to one who is supposed to be your equal.

When a man is caged he depends on others for food, he depends on friends for shelter sleeping on the couch in his friend’s living room. A caged life will always make you dependent instead of being independent.

I pray that God will do a new thing in your life that will lead to total independence for you, in Jesus name.

5. Even when occupants of cages move, they move with the cage still around them.

The bad thing about cages also is that unless the door of the cage is opened, movement only takes place if the cage is moved about. In other words, wherever you move, the cage is moved with you; so you are confined to that cage. Let’s say an animal is to be moved from town A to town B. It is not moved independent of the cage. Either it is moved in the same cage or it is transferred to another cage and then moved.

I have seen people move from one city to another looking for a better life. Unfortunately, the cage that blocked them in the former city moves with them to the new city too. Since the cage was not opened where they moved from, they will experience the same problems in this city like they experienced in the previous. I have seen this same problem affect people moving from one country to another, from one job to another and from one marriage to another.

6. After you’ve been in a cage for a long time, you get used to life in it.

That is the truth. After some time, you adapt to life in the cage.

Prayer Point: Every life that I have adjusted myself to, that is not of God, I reject it in the name of Jesus.

Many who are poor have adjusted to life of poverty. Many who are sick have adjusted to not being well. After being in a cage for a long time, you get so used to it that even when you are set free, the cage mentality is still in you. Hence, when you are set free, you still live as if you are in the cage.

Many times in Africa, you go to the market to buy a live chicken. Usually the legs of these birds are tied to restrain them. Even when the ropes are removed, some chickens will not move because the ropes have been on them for so long they feel they are still tied.

That’s what I call cage mentality. Some reading this book may be free already but because of their cage mentality, they still walk around as if there are restrains on them.

I once heard about the story of a bear that was kept in a ten-foot cage. The poor animal paced back and forth inside the cage twenty-four hours of the day, seven days a week. One day, the authorities decided to release it back into the wild. It was transported by air and then by road to its natural habitat. All the while it was being transferred; it just paced ten feet this way and ten feet that way as usual.

When they got to where it was to be released, they opened the door of the cage hoping the bear will walk out. It did not. It just paced back and forth in the opened cage passing by the opened door several times.

Finally they managed to lure it out. One would have thought the bear would rise up and run into its natural habitat, but it didn’t, it started going ten feet one way and turn around going ten feet the other way. You know why? It still had the cage mentality. Released but bound, set free but still in bondage.

Prayer Point: O Lord, deliver me from every cage mentality in me in Jesus name.

7. It is possible to live and die in a cage.

This is a scary thought, nonetheless one that is absolutely true. Just as countless animals have died in captivity so have numerous human beings died in spiritual cages.

Many tombstones can rightly carry the inscription; “Died in the cage without being allowed to achieve his goals, dreams and aspirations.”

Notice, I said, “without being allowed.” Not that these people did not want to, not that they did not try to but how much can you do when you are caged up?

This article has been extracted from Dr. Itiola’s book: Freedom from Spiritual Cages.(Article Source)


In this article, I am dealing with a subject that is so personal and so private that those who have it don’t like to talk about it. I’m talking about the issue of women, and many times men, who experience sexual relationships in their sleep.

There are three people affected by this. Those who have this relationship on a constant, ongoing basis; those that have this relationship on and off, and those who have this relationship but don’t know they do because immediately after, it is wiped off their memory by demonic manipulation.

In my own opinion, the third group is the worst group to belong. Since they cannot remember the dream, they will not be able to do something about it.

If you have the problem of sexual encounters in your dream, the first thing I have to say to you is, relax. Just relax, don’t be tensed up. Why? You are not alone. Statistics have shown that seven out of ten women experience this problem.

I read about a Pastor who has a church of over 30000 members. He decided to do an anonymous statistics on women and men that have this problem, and it turned out to be the same for the men as it was for the women- seven out of ten constantly or occasionally, have immoral relationships with men or women in their dreams.


These spirits have so mastered the art of deception that they will use the faces of people you are familiar with when they visit you at night.

There are women who have told us they see their dad coming to sleep with them in their dreams. We know that is the spirit husband using the face of the father. Your dad has nothing to do with this night encounter.

Sometimes they may even bring the face of your pastor, who fasts and prays for you. This is another manipulation in itself to make you look down on your pastor and distrust him. Trust me, it was not your pastor coming to sleep with you, he’s not as debased as to do that. It is none other the spirit husband.

At other times, they’ll bring the face of your husband. It’s not in dreams that you’re supposed to meet with your husband this way. Any experience like that is very questionable.

They can also come with the face of your brother, your boss and people around you. It’s no other one but the spirit husband masquerading himself in these false disguises.


These night-time [sometimes day-time] experiences are called encounters with spirit husbands and spirit wives.

In West Africa they call these dream visitors; ‘night husbands and night wives.’

The Latin people of those days called it the ‘encounter with incubi and succubi.’

If you look in the Webster’s dictionary, Incubi is described as a spirit being that comes to have intimate relationships with women why they are asleep while Succubi is described as a spirit being that comes to have relationships with men in their sleep.

In Matthew 13:25, the Bible says; “But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.”

The most dangerous part of your day is really not when you’re driving on the highway, operating a machinery in a factory or doing construction work on a high rise building.

The most dangerous part of anybody’s day is when you lay down to sleep. That is when the enemy does the most damage to the majority of people.

I will be deceiving myself to tell you that I know everything that needs to be known about this subject, but the little, tiny experience I’ve had over the years in studying, coupled with counseling and praying for people, I can say without any shadow of doubt that the problem of succubi and succubi is a very common problem that you cannot just dismiss with a wave of the hand.

What is so troubling is that many Christians who are saved, sanctified and filled with the Holy Sprit, are also afflicted and affected by this problem. Out of ignorance and sometimes out of pride, these dear saints keep this problem to themselves rather that cry out for help.

Erica Joseph in a booklet titled “Sex with demons – Nightmares, Incubus and Succubus,” had the following to say:
“Sexual experiences with demonic spirits are very real even in this day and age. I have personally taken both men and women through deliverance, that have experienced this and some became bound by the spirits of Incubus and Succubus. I have personally taken both men and women through deliverance, where the witch or warlock has actually, through the use of astral travel, seduced them, having sexual relations with them as they slept, with them thinking it was only a dream. This having been done through the utilization of “Familiar” spirits.

In some instances, I have found that those spirits have entered in through masturbation and fantasy lust. If the individuals renounce the fantasy lust and stopped masturbating, they were delivered. I have taken several individuals through deliverance from those demons and I’ve found that people have been violated (raped) by spirits, not actually wanting to believe it or not understanding what happened to them until deliverance revealed it. But they know that they had experienced something painful and undesirable.

I have taken individuals through deliverance, that have felt the bed moving, felt their bodies responding uncontrollably, yet their rational, logical mind could not comprehend it. So they wrote it off as a dream. These demonic spirits that function in this sexually perverse way must be renounced and cast out, in the Name of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Essentially, the incubus is a lewd demon which seeks sexual intercourse with women. It is also termed follet (French), alp (German), duende (Spanish) and folletto (Italian). The corresponding demon who appears to men is the succubus. When associated with one particular witch or sorcerer, both incubus and succubus are known as magistellus, or “familiar”. Inasmuch as the nightmare dream is sexual in latent content, incubus is often used interchangeably with The Mare Demon; in fact, the Latin word for nightmare is incubo (to lie upon). The incubus can assume either a male or a female shape. Sometimes he appears as a full-grown man. Sometimes as a satyr or in the form of a demon, and if it is a woman who has been received as a witch, the incubus generally assumes the form of an animal.

Succubus is a demon in female form, specialized in seducing men. Although feminine in meaning, in form this medieval Latis word, succubus, is masculine (because demons were supposedly sexless) the feminine form succuba (strumpet) is occasionally found.
If you have, or are having dreams or nightmares of a sexual nature that you know are as real as life, dreams where you cannot exactly distinguish the real from the unreal, please seek deliverance. Don’t allow Satan and his demonic hosts to degrade your body which is the Temple of God.”


A Pentecostal monthly publication once discussed the subject of deliverance in an eye-opening article.

In the article, the writer wrote about a strange deliverance session he conducted. He talked about a lady who he simply called Angel. Angel had been involved for some time in the occult. She and her boyfriend met the Pastor in a restaurant, looking like they had been physically assaulted.

Right there in the restaurant, a deliverance session began then the unthinkable happened!

A solid black chicken walked into the place. Yes, you are not reading a misprint. A black chicken appeared and this happened in Colorado Springs, Colorado, United States of America. Gone were the days when stories like this were exclusive to Africa and Haiti. There is a lot going on in the Spirit realm all over the world. We are in the last days.

As the solid black chicken appeared, Angel’s face gazed and became fixed on it. The hen hopped into a vacant chair ten feet away from them. Suddenly, Angel said to the deliverance minister, ” I want an egg.” When the minister approached the chicken, it jumped off the chair and ran to the door. It left behind the largest egg you have ever seen. The minister picked up the egg and brought it back to the restaurant table where Angel was being prayed for.

The terror on Angel’s face was clearly evident when the egg was held out to her. She hid her eyes behind her hands. In response to the minister’s prodding, Angel told odd tales of her life. She said that she is a bride of Satan. She was a wife to Satan. Then she explained that in the egg were the ten children she had through spiritual sexual intercourse with Satan.

When Angel met with the deliverance team again that afternoon, she told of how she had come from a broken home, and that she had engaged in perverted premarital sex regularly.

When the deliverance session commenced, she was handed the egg, which she had refused to even look at previously. She held it in the palm of her hand as the demons were commanded to leave. She was told to break the egg but recoiled as if to protect the egg. She said, “I can’t break this egg!” but after authoritative commands to break the egg she turned down her hand upside down but amazingly the egg stuck to her hand as if it was glued to it. After more prayers were made, she let out a piercing scream and the egg shattered all over the floor. To their amazement, it was filled with blood- red fluid instead of a yellow yolk. That’s how finally this lady was delivered.
The problem we are dealing with in this book is real, unfortunately many ministers have no idea how many of their members are suffering in the hands of these wicked spirits.

I was in Africa a few years ago to attend a conference. After the conference, many workers who attended came to me expressing how night husbands and night wives are troubling them. “Unfortunately,” they lamented, “Our church does not believe in dealing with issues like this, yet we are suffering and need deliverance.”

If your church argues against the existence of this problem and voices opposition to deliverance, find a church where they you can be helped. God will not hold it against you.


How does the presence of spirit husband or wife affect a person? I know of at least three ways that I would like to discuss.

  1. Difficulty getting married.
  2. Difficulty staying married.
  3. Difficulty having children.

Firstly, those who experience sexual encounters in their dreams will have difficulty getting married and if they make attempts to get married, all their attempts will be met with one frustration or another.

I have met with many men and women who in the natural should have no problems whatsoever in finding a spouse. Unfortunately because of the presence of these spiritual spouses, they are blocked from being able to get engaged and stay engaged.

One night I was ministering in a revival service. The Lord gave me a word of knowledge about a lady who was being troubled every night by spirit husband. A lady raised her hand and she was prayed for. This sister has suffered a lot from the hand of this evil personality. She was engaged in the church to marry a brother but mysteriously, the engagement broke up. Little did we know that it was the work of the spirit husband.

That night, the spirit husband came back but could not do anything to her because the Lord had broken that yoke during the revival. The spirit left and could not come back to defile her again.

Not too long after that she was engaged and the marriage was held without any problem whatsoever.

If you know you ought to have been married by now but for whatever reason cannot find someone to marry or cannot stay engaged, you probably are being troubled by the problem under discussion. See a capable deliverance minister for the prayer of deliverance.

Secondly, those who experience sexual encounters in their dreams are likely to have difficulty in their marital lives.

The Spirit husband or wife is very jealous and anyone who is married to the one they claim better get ready for war.

Many unhappy and broken homes today are as such because of the evil manipulations of these jealous spirits.

A sister in our church was recently delivered from the power of night husband. She told me to make sure I include her testimony in my book so as to encourage those who may be suffering the same fate as she suffered.

Her story shows how the presence of a spirit husband or wife can have a negative effect on a marriage.

For as far back as she could remember she had a sprit husband, who will come in to her every night and defile her. After she got saved, he was still coming every night. She told me that some nights, this man would have left before she would have any consciousness of the fact that he had been around.

During these encounters, she has very serious marital problems that defied solutions. Her marriage was at the brink of collapse.

One day, she just got up and told her husband, she was tired of the marriage. She took $1000 and moved out of the house. She went to the Penn station in New York City and boarded a bus not even knowing where the bus was headed.

She rode on the bus for about three hours till it got to Baltimore, Maryland. Then something told her to get off the bus and she did. This lady came out of the bus not knowing where to go since she had no contacts in Baltimore.

As she came out of the bus, a well-dressed man carrying a briefcase approached her, calling her by her first name. She was startled by the incidence since he is a total stranger to her.

“Who in the world are you?” she asked.
He replied, “Don’t tell me you don’t know me.”
“I am telling you that I don’t know you.” She replied.
“I am your husband.” The man replied.
“You are not my husband. My husband is in New York.” Was her reply.
“I’m the one who comes to you every night in your dreams. Let us go, for I have spiritually manipulated you from New York to this place so we can spend some time together in real life.” He further told her that after they are done in Baltimore he will let her return to New York but will henceforth call her out to meet with him at other locations all over the United States. He opened his briefcase and it was full of hard-core currency. He told her not to worry, she would be well taken care of.

When the lady got to this point of her story, I had to make sure I was in a counseling session and not in a dream. I then asked her if what she had said thus far happened in real life or she was just narrating a dream experience to me. Lo and behold, it was not a dream.

I then asked her what she did.

She said, “Pastor, my eyes opened and I pushed him aside, ran into the bus station to take the next bus to New York.” However, before she left, the man said to her, “Where are you running to? You can run, but you can’t hide. I don’t have to get on the bus to be with you in New York!”

She got on the bus the same night and arrived in New York in the early hours of the morning. When she got off the bus in New York, guess who was waiting for her?…the same “man” she left in Baltimore a few hours earlier.

With a grin on his face, he said to her, “I told you that you’re mine and I’m yours. No circumstances can change our decision, so you might as well stop running.”

She pushed him out of the way and took a taxi home where she quickly made up with her real husband.

It was this incidence that brought her to me for deliverance. The man never surfaced again after her deliverance.

Many who have spirit husbands and get married in the physical end up having problems in their marriages.

The fact of the matter is that the spirit husband is very jealous. He takes marriage to another person as a sign of unfaithfulness and will not give up without a fight. Sometimes not only is the marriage attacked, the husband in the physical is also attacked in one-way or the other by the spirit husband. There have been cases of men who have died mysterious and violent deaths as a direct result of attacks from the spirit husband.

At other times the spirit husband will separate the husband from the wife making it hard for them to live together under the same roof.

The final evil effect of the presence of spirit husband and spirit wife is the difficulty in having children.

We have had to deal with many cases of barren women who the doctors cannot understand the cause for their barrenness. They have been thoroughly examined and no medical reasons are found for their inability to reproduce.

In many of these cases, during deliverance sessions, the spirit husband manifests contesting our right to dislodge him from blocking the lady. The anointing that destroys yokes has set many women free during these sessions resulting in the birth of healthy babies sometimes after decades of childlessness.

At other times diseases of the reproductive system is introduced into the woman thereby making it difficult for her to conceive.
