Recently I had a vivid dream where I was with two others doing ministry on the streets somewhere. In this dream, we came across a large man dressed in a 3 piece suit (minus the jacket) and he was chained by multiple chains to a wall behind him.
As we approached the man, one of the other people next to me attempted to cast demons out of the chained man, this appeared to have absolutely no effect upon the chained man at all. After a few minutes, the person with me stopped his ministry over the man and looked at me puzzled.
All of a sudden this overwhelming compassion began to well up within me for the chained man. While we were all afraid to approach him before, I stepped up right in front of him and began to weep over him. Through the tears, I began to tell him what the Holy Spirit was beginning to reveal to me about him, how I saw him as a little boy who had been verbally and physically abused for much of his adolescent life by his natural father.
As I spoke these words over him, the look of hate and anger which had been upon his face melted away into shock first and then weeping and crying next. As he hung his head in front of me, weeping profusely, the chains began to melt away that had him bound to that wall behind him.
Moments later he raised his head once more, only instead of his face being filled with anger and hate, his countenance was filled with such Peace and Joy that he reached out and began to hug on my neck like a large bear! As he finally released me from the embrace, I opened up his hand and dropped this Golden Master Key into his hand and said to him, “Just like Jesus Christ has released you from your chains, use this Key to release others you know who are bound by their pasts.”
Moments later I Awakened, still weeping as though I was actually in the experience itself and not dreaming at all, and the Holy Spirit spoke to me and said, “Not everything that people are attaching demonic presence to actually has demonic presence currently attached to it! Many people are just damaged goods from the old works that the devil did in their past and need to be released from the chains of their pasts.”
“The reason the Son of God was made manifest (visible) was to undo (destroy, loosen, and dissolve) the works the devil [has done].” 1 John 3:8b
It wasn’t deliverance from the demonic the man needed, but deliverance from the damage of past events which needed to be healed instead, which is why the other person trying to cast demons out of the man did nothing initially. He needed the Love of God to restore his soul, wash away the pain, heal his scars and melt the chains of his past away!
How many of you this morning are being chained up by your past? The Master Key of God’s Love unlocks every chain trying to restrain you and hold you back! He Loves You more than you could ever imagine and that Love has come to free you this morning completely from those chains!
Holy Spirit, melt the hard hearts, and dissolve the chains of the past for every person who reads this post! May they encounter You, Jesus Christ, Father God, and Holy Spirit and be freed by the Power of Your Love!
“So if the Son liberates you [makes you free men], then you are really and unquestionably free.” John 8:36
