A STOLEN LIFE
December 28, 2020 9:52 AM
On July 16, 2019, I saw a vision of the face of a little girl with blond hair. I did not recognize the child but I recorded the vision in my journal, wondering what it could possibly mean. Two days later upon waking I heard the Holy Spirit say “FAITH ANDERSON WAS MURDERED”. Whoa! I was like who is Faith Anderson and why was she murdered? I couldn’t get to my PC fast enough to start googling her name. The search revealed many hits, mostly on obituaries. After scrolling through the entries, I came across a picture of a young girl with blonde hair. It was the same little girl I had seen in the vision two days prior! Her full name was Faith Joyce Anderson born May 26, 2008, died February 8, 2014, and she was from Riverside, CA.
The Lord said she was murdered and I wondered how she died and who killed her. As I looked at her picture, suddenly a wave of grief washed over me for this precious child, whose life was stolen from her. I literally felt the most intense heart-wrenching sadness over her death. It was unconscionable to me that someone could murder a child! Pretty soon I was bawling my eyes out. Then just as suddenly as the anguish started, it passed. It dawned on me that the Lord was allowing me to feel His sorrow over her death. Over the next few days whenever I would think about Faith, I would feel that same sorrow pass over me. I understood that the grief I felt was not my own, but the Lord’s. But I was at a loss as to why He was sharing all this with me and so I began seeking Him for answers.
The answer came on July 25, 2019 when I read a post by Jo Ellen Stevens called “The Earth is Awaiting Your Groanings!” at The Earth is Awaiting Your Groanings! ~ by Jo Ellen Stevens (hiskingdomprophecy.com). Below is an excerpt from that article:
When I see the abuse of little animals, my heart breaks. There is something inside of me that wants to cry out! I want to cry from the pit of my stomach and be sure that God hears me and will answer. I care for many things like this and today I am hearing Him saying: “WHAT IS IT THAT YOU ARE CRYING OUT FROM YOUR HEART FOR? WHAT IS THIS BURDEN? WHAT OF MY BURDENS ARE IN YOUR HEART? I HAVE CALLED YOU TO BRING CHANGE THROUGH YOUR INTERCESSION! LISTEN AGAIN! THIS IS NOT YOUR BURDEN, BUT MINE FOR I HAVE GIVEN IT TO YOU!”
As soon as I read that post, I realized that the Lord had placed His Burden of all the “Faith Anderson’s” of this world in my heart. All the silent, hidden victims of child abuse, pornography, trafficking, torture, and sacrifice. The Lord wanted me to agree with Him that these things were wrong and to play a part in counteracting this evil through my prayer and intercession. I was wholeheartedly on board with what He wanted me to do, but just not sure how to go about it.
Soon after that, I listened to a sermon by Marsha Burns called “Open and Shut” at https://www.ft111.com/A/Jul19/0721Marsha.mp3. What I took away from that sermon is that it is Matthew 18:18 that gives us the authority to bind the bad stuff and to loose the good stuff. She said that Heaven is the seat of the divine order of things where God dwells and binding and loosing allows us to change the natural order of things for the better.
Well it never occurred to me that God gave us that kind of authority! I began combing the Bible for scriptures that confirm our authority to make change. And I found lots of confirmation. Knowing that I could in some way effect change for the better filled me with hope and joy! From that day forward, I started to pray the following prayer out loud for all the little “Faith Anderson’s” of the world:
I BIND all unclean spirits of Bondage, Perversion, Murder, Torture, Fear, Spirit of the Antichrist, Familiar Spirit, and Abuse coming against the abused children of this world in Jesus Name. I BREAK all enemy assignments of abuse, trauma, torture, sacrifice, trafficking and pornography off of these victims now. I DECREE that all perpetrators of these heinous crimes are sent back now to Your feet for judgment, Lord Jesus, and their victims released immediately and sent someplace safe to heal. I LOOSE hope and peace, healing and wholeness, mercy and grace, blessings and favor over all these victims in Jesus Name. Amen.
LUKE 10:19 Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
MATTHEW 18:18 “Assuredly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.
JOB 22:28 You shall also decree a thing, and it shall be established for you: and the light shall shine upon your ways.
MATTHEW 16:17 Jesus answered and said to him, “Blessed are you, Simon Bar-Jonah, for flesh and blood has not revealed this to you, but My Father who is in heaven. 18And I also say to you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build My church, and the gates of Hades shall not prevail against it. 19And I will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven, and whatever you bind on earth will be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.”
MARK 16:15 And He said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. 16He who believes and is baptized will be saved; but he who does not believe will be condemned. 17And these signs will follow those who believe: In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; 18they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.”
GENESIS 1:26 Then God said, “Let Us make man in Our image, according to Our likeness; let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, over all the earth and over every creeping thing that creeps on the earth.” 27So God created man in His own image; in the image of God He created him; male and female He created them. 28Then God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply; fill the earth and subdue it; have dominion over the fish of the sea, over the birds of the air, and over every living thing that moves on the earth.”
LUKE 19:11 Now as they heard these things, He spoke another parable, because He was near Jerusalem and because they thought the kingdom of God would appear immediately. 12Therefore He said: “A certain nobleman went into a far country to receive for himself a kingdom and to return. 13So he called ten of his servants, delivered to them ten minas, and said to them, ‘Do business till I come.’ 14But his citizens hated him, and sent a delegation after him, saying, ‘We will not have this man to reign over us.’ 15“And so it was that when he returned, having received the kingdom, he then commanded these servants, to whom he had given the money, to be called to him, that he might know how much every man had gained by trading. 16Then came the first, saying, ‘Master, your mina has earned ten minas.’ 17And he said to him, ‘Well done, good servant; because you were faithful in a very little, have authority over ten cities.’ 18And the second came, saying, ‘Master, your mina has earned five minas.’ 19Likewise he said to him, ‘You also be over five cities.’ 20“Then another came, saying, ‘Master, here is your mina, which I have kept put away in a handkerchief. 21For I feared you, because you are an austere man. You collect what you did not deposit, and reap what you did not sow.’ 22And he said to him, ‘Out of your own mouth I will judge you, you wicked servant. You knew that I was an austere man, collecting what I did not deposit and reaping what I did not sow. 23Why then did you not put my money in the bank, that at my coming I might have collected it with interest?’ 24“And he said to those who stood by, ‘Take the mina from him, and give it to him who has ten minas.’ 25(But they said to him, ‘Master, he has ten minas.’) 26‘For I say to you, that to everyone who has will be given; and from him who does not have, even what he has will be taken away from him. 27But bring here those enemies of mine, who did not want me to reign over them, and slay them before me.’ ”
