In 1980, God spoke to me and told me to come to Plano and speak to the people of Plano.
I arrived here and began ministering on August 1, 1980. The following July, God asked me if I would like to know the ruling spirit of Plano. I responded, "Well yes!" He said, "Turn to Revelation 2, the Church of Thyatira and I will show you what rules Plano."
Revelation 2:18-29 states, "And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of God, who hath his eyes like unto a flame of fire, and his feet are like fine brass; v.18
I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first. v.19
Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols. v.20
And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not. v.21
Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds. v.22
And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am he which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works. v.23
But unto you I say, and unto the rest in Thyatira, as many as have not this doctrine, and which have not known the depths of Satan, as they speak; I will put upon you none other burden. v.24
But that which ye have already hold fast till I come.v.25
And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations: v.26
And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my Father. v.27
And I will give him the morning star. v.28
He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches." v.29
As I read these passages of scripture it came very clear to me by the Spirit that the Jezebel spirit was the ruling spirit of Plano, Texas. My knowledge of the Jezebel spirit in operation had been revealed to me from the occurrences in the bible. Now I am faced with a city that God has directed me to go speak to, and he tells me that the ruling spirit of this city is the Jezebel spirit.
Over the years, I have come to understand much more about this spirit; its operations, its methods, and its manifestations. In September 1984, my wife Patti yielded to what I believe to be the Jezebel ruler of the city of Plano and was directed by that spirit to lay hands on another lady in our fellowship. What followed was hysterical laughter, spirits throwing people to the floor, screaming, and other strange manifestations.
I went on television in April 1984 in Dallas and Fort Worth. Many of these manifestations were viewed by television. Needless to say at that point in time I was not sure if this were God or an evil spirit unleashed on my ministry. I was determined to continue to walk in this gospel that God had revealed unto me and continue to minister the spirit that I had ministered for fourteen years. Because of that there was a continuous war in my house, in this building where the ministry is housed, and wherever I traveled to.
Updated: August 16, 2006. [Over a period of time, I could see that God, by using an evil spirit, had removed Patti from my life as my wife. It became very clear to me that this happened because of Patti's unbelief and rebellion.]
One thing that I noticed about this spirit, it did not require faith and patience in the person that it used. I watched that spirit take over almost every person in this building at 1621 18th Street. I recall one Sunday morning I was on the platform and that spirit moved into this sanctuary and took over the people for 20 minutes. I had no authority over that spirit, and I could not stop its activities. I am reminded of a statement that I made to Basil and Kay Clark, "I have lost complete control in this house." I erroneously said, "I guess that is what God wants me to do, lose control, knowing that the spirit of the prophet was subject to the prophet."(I Corinthians 14:32)
I battled that spirit with my faith and this gospel that I walk in for years and watched the manifestations of that spirit subside gradually as I overcame.
*Updated: August 18, 2006 [In Mark 13:22 it says, "For false Christs and false prophets shall rise, and shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce, if it were possible, even the elect." God had ministered this verse of scripture to me from September 1984 until early April 1998. By that time in 1998, I had become fully persuaded this spirit was most certainly a false Christ (anointing), and because of my faith it was imputed unto me for righteousness. I spoke at a meeting at the South Bend Marriott and shared with a group of people, that I believed this spirit was a false Christ (anointing). From that day forth, I could see I was overcoming that spirit in my ministry. It took God fourteen years to work righteousness into my heart to deal with that spirit. During this period, my faith was greatly tried and perfected. One thing I did not want to do was to call the Holy Spirit a false anointing. Even today, I am overcoming some of that false anointing that came against me and against all of those associated with me.]
During those years, I would cast Jezebel spirits out of people, male and female, primarily female. On October 23, 2005, I saw some powerful deliverances from women in this ministry from the Jezebel spirit. Since that time the deliverance is stronger and more frequent.
On November 6th, I spent an hour after the TV broadcast binding the Jezebel, and I saw several people receive strong deliverances from that spirit. The deliverances continued that evening.
*Updated: August 16, 2006 [As I awoke this morning, November 7th, I was under a great attack from the Jezebel spirit. I began to thank God and forgive certain people that I know are my enemies and bound by this spirit. As I thanked God for these people and forgave them, I continued to overcome the spirit of this city.
During November and December of 2005, the pressure was great. I had times where I could barely get my breath. At one time, my head actually thought that I was dying, but in my spirit I knew that was not true. On December 27, 2005, as I sat at El Fenix eating a meal, God told me that JR had lied to Lisa and she had believed his lies. I began to get relief, only after I posted on my web site that the Lord said those words. On January 13, 2006, I overcame witchcraft and posted Psalm 55 on my web site. Since that time, there has been continued progress overcoming this spirit.]
Revelation 18 describes this spirit, Rev 18:1-8, "And after these things I saw another angel come down from heaven, having great power; and the earth was lightened with his glory. v.1
And he cried mightily with a strong voice, saying, Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen, and is become the habitation of devils, and the hold of every foul spirit, and a cage of every unclean and hateful bird. v.2
For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. v.3
And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. v.4
For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities. v.5
Reward her even as she rewarded you, and double unto her double according to her works: in the cup which she hath filled fill to her double. v.6
How much she hath glorified herself, and lived deliciously, so much torment and sorrow give her: for she saith in her heart, I sit a queen, and am no widow, and shall see no sorrow. v.7
Therefore shall her plagues come in one day, death, and mourning, and famine; and she shall be utterly burned with fire: for strong is the Lord God who judgeth her." v.8
You notice in verse 7 it says how much she hath glorified herself, so much torment and sorrow give her. I learned years ago that in Luke 8 it tells you how to torment a spirit.
Luke 8:28-29, "When he saw Jesus, he cried out, and fell down before him, and with a loud voice said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God most high? I beseech thee, torment me not. v.28
You notice that this spirit said, "I beseech thee, torment me not."
(For he had commanded the unclean spirit to come out of the man. For oftentimes it had caught him: and he was kept bound with chains and in fetters; and he brake the bands, and was driven of the devil into the wilderness.)" v.29
Verse 29 tells us how you torment these spirits you command them to come out.
I have come to a place with my faith, patience, and love to torment these spirits with a greater authority. I thank God for this honor on my life.
God bless you,
