DO NOT ABANDON YOUR DREAM
The service on Sunday, 27 September 2020, started with prayer and it went on with hymns of praise in a wonderful atmosphere of worship. An encouraging message followed with the title “DO NOT ABANDON YOUR DREAM”, by the evangelist Maria Sachpazidou.
She explained that many people today even though they have begun their lives having a dream, they lost it on the way and ended up doing something they do not love. Using as an example, a man who overcame every obstacle to achieve his dream, she read the story of Zacchaeus from the Gospel of Luke 19:1-10. More specifically, she mentioned that Zacchaeus’ dream was to attract Jesus Christ’s attention in his life. In order to fulfill his dream, he found a way to overcome every obstacle in his way! For instance, he was short, there was a huge crowd and people were disgracing him because of his social status! Eventually, Zacchaeus proved he was a man of vision as the evangelist highlighted: “If you are a man of vision, no matter what constitutes the obstacles on your way, you can never be stopped. Instead of pressure and tension to reduce your vision, it will even enlarge your strategies”. Problems were created to be solved; they were not created to stop us!
Contrary to Zacchaeus, many people today allow the obstacles that come their way to become the reason why they abandon their dreams! Moreover, the evangelist mentioned the three most common reasons that people abandon their dreams: because of their situation, because they are unwilling to play their role and because they do not believe in their dream. Yet, the evangelist pointed out that there is nothing more ridiculous than to allow your present situation to cause you to doubt the fulfillment of God’s Word or promises for your life. Therefore, she encouraged us to believe in our dreams and become men of vision! Ending her message, she noted that no matter our past, life does not completely close the door to opportunity. She urged us to keep on fighting for our dreams, as there is nothing worse than living a life without a dream or vision.
YOGA AND CLAIRVOYANCE CAUSED HIM PARANOID SCHIZOPHRENIA
40-year-old Mr. Bagou from Denmark decided to visit the Synagogue, Church Of All Nations Thessalonica, believing that Jesus Christ will heal him from paranoid schizophrenia and destroy the devil’s actions in his life. He stood in the prayer line, and once the man of God Harry touched him, he felt a supernatural current running through his body. He then lost control of himself and the unclean spirits in his body manifested and confessed: “I am witchcraft! I am the snake! Confusion… I entered him through a panic attack!”. Then, the man of God rebuked the demons, and they were cast out in the mighty name of Jesus Christ!
Mr. Bagou later confirmed everything the demons confessed to being true in his life. He experienced a severe panic attack 15 years ago, which was so intense that he felt like he was going to die or go insane. Since then, he began being ruled by the desire to have supernatural experiences. This led him to start “Kundalini Yoga”, which is symbolized by a coiled and “dormant” snake, at the base of the spinal cord. According to this type of yoga, a snake sleeps into someone and the goal is to invoke it, awaken it, and unwrap it with specific breathing exercises, meditation and yoga movements. Therefore, the ones who have such an experience are considered “enlightened”. That is what happened to Mr. Bagou! As he began to practice Kundalini yoga, he started to feel the snake moving from his spine to his skull. However, it was not a pleasant experience as he expected. Instead, it was one of the worst experiences of his life… He began to see and hear strange things from that moment and he was able to foretell the future. He later realized that the spirit of the snake was trying to mimic the Holy Spirit by seeing the future, just as the spirit of python mentioned in the Book of Acts 16:16-18.
Unfortunately, in his effort to find the truth, he started tarot card reading and start learning clairvoyance. The consequences caused him to have demonic spiritual experiences. He heard and saw many strange things. In fact, he kept hearing the name of a particular demon (Zadkiel). After those events, and especially the invocation of the snake with yoga, Mr. Bagou’s mental state began to change. He could not sleep properly and at the same time, he found it difficult to control his body. He soon ended up in a mental asylum where he stayed for a year and had to take strong medication of antipsychotics. This medication made him lethargic, exhausted and impatient. As a result, he was easily irritated by others and could not stand children at all.
He was feeling horrible with the demons ruling him, and he understood that everything he was going through was coming straight from hell… Until one day, disappointed as he was, he cried out to God! The demons inside of him did not like that and they showed him a black cat that was about to attack him in the physical. Then, fear took over him, and he realized that things were very serious and that the spirit of witchcraft was dominating his life. He also realized that there was a connection between him and many patients in the asylum. They all had similar experiences, yet they could not explain or be set free from them. The diagnosis of the doctors concerning Mr. Bagou was paranoid schizophrenia. Still, no one could understand or explain the demonic experiences he had because his problem was spiritual…
Therefore, he decided to come to the SCOAN Thessalonica, believing that God will deliver him from his suffering. Indeed, the Spirit of God located him! Now, delivered from the demons that were tormenting him, he is happy and full of hope for the future, and he knows that God has brought freedom to every area of his life! Finally, he promised to continue to fight in his life with God by his side!
If satan gives you something with his right hand that looks like blessing, peace, joy or hope in the same moment he also takes something your life depends on with his left hand. But God always allows temptation to strengthen your love and determination for Him!
GOD’S ANOINTING EXPOSES ANCIENT DEMON-GIANT OF IRAN!
For more than 10 years, Dr. Soudeh from Sweden was being tormented mentally, subjected to many spiritual attacks through sexual dreams. When she would wake up in the morning she would be very confused in her mind. She was unable to control neither her behavior nor her words, which caused her serious problems at work, as she is a doctor and had to keep in touch with her patients and write important documents about them. Despite her willingness to do the right thing and provide the best possible service to her patients, she could not be polite to them – she was always abrupt, rude and mean. In fact, because of the constant confusion she felt, she would write various instructions for the patients she had under her supervision, and then she could not make any sense of what she had written! When she realized that she had no control over what was happening to her, but something else was pushing her to behave strangely, she wanted to isolate herself because she knew that her association with other people would only have destructive consequences.
Seeking a solution to her problem, Dr. Soudeh sought the face of God and visited the Synagogue, Church Of All Nations Thessalonica. On Friday, 25 September 2020, along with many visitors from all over the world, she visited the Prayer Mountain which is the place the man of God Harry prays, spends precious time with God and receives guidance and direction from Him. It is a holy and anointed place, where the Spirit of God moves with amazing power, offering freedom to those who are under the bonds of satan. As Dr. Soudeh was at the Prayer Mountain, the process of her deliverance began. She vomited every poisonous substance she had eaten from the enemy’s table and felt her heart fill with life, peace, and love.
Convinced that neither medicine nor counseling could help her but only a miracle from God, she came the next day to the SCOAN Thessalonica’s Sunday Service to receive an anointed prayer from the man of God Harry. So, while she was standing in the prayer line, the man of God approached her and prayed for her. Immediately, an unclean spirit began to manifest and reveal many dark secrets about her, but also about the whole nation of Iran, which is her country of origin. “She is mine!”, said the demon full of pride. “I am the great giant from Iran. I was king of Persia, I had a great kingdom. Many thousands of years ago, fallen angels ruled the earth and destroyed everything that had to do with Him. She knows that I am here, she has tried to drive me away many times… She cries and prays day and night because she does not want to be evil, and she tortures me. She does not give up. I’m trying to kill her! If it was not for her spiritual mother praying for her, she would be have been in the grave since a long time ago! I have a lot of power! She has power in her hair to destroy people! She looks at people and destroys them. When she looks at them they find her charming and I visit them at night. I attack her so hard that I’m about to make her get into a psychiatric hospital. But then she starts praying to Jesus Christ and she gets power.
This mountain, which you call the Prayer Mountain, is not a mountain, it is fire! I am from her ancestors. Her ancestors used to worship me, but this stupid girl refuses to do it and she will not escape. She does not want to destroy people, she only wants God. So, I punished and destroyed her. I have been operating in the world for 5080 years, about 3000 years before your Chief, your Boss came to the world physically. I pass from one generation to another through generational bloodlines, and all the people of Iran are under my influence. So, if I leave this girl, all Iranian people will get liberated. They cry day and night because they are tortured by me and my army! Iran was a country of giants. Persepolis was the city of giants and she has been there. If anybody wants to come to your Master in that country, we kill them physically. She refuses to come to Iran, so we try to kill her spiritually. I approach those who claim to be Christians but do not have the fire of the Holy Spirit! We kidnap them, I eat their flesh, I drink their blood and everything is destroyed in a second; their career, their health, they get suicidal thoughts, what they call ‘faith’ disappears, and they become my servants for the rest of their lives! I try to go as far as possible from those who have the fire of the Holy Spirit like you, but there is no one around her. She lives in the country of the antichrist, Sweden. Nobody with fire there. But I could not stop her from coming here, because she is stubborn and stupid!”. Immediately the man of God rebuked the giant demon and Dr. Soudeh was set free in the name of Jesus Christ! Once she came back to her senses, she started glorifying God, who answered her prayers and set her free!
Right after her deliverance, Dr. Soudeh understood why so many paradoxical things were happening in her life. She confirmed the demon’s revealing words, saying that it all started 23 years ago when she traveled to the ancient city of Persepolis, which is in her homeland, Iran. As she explained, giants lived in this city and, in fact, one of the kings of Persia was a giant, whose photo she bought and then hung for 2 years in her room! From an early age, she remembers her grandmother telling her stories about giants eating people and children, as well as many other stories that were commonly told among the locals. So, she explained that after this journey many things began to change in her life and, as she revealed, she now realizes that the spirit that tortured and tormented her all these years was the one of the king of Persia.
The demon completely controlled her life and through powers she had in her hair and eyes she seduced men against her will, even pastors who did not have the fire of the Holy Spirit! Emphasizing on the fire that exists in the real children of God, she clarified that only those who were genuine children of God did not fall victims of her methods. In an attempt to resist this control, she cut her hair and prayed, but to no avail. Her life was vain and many times she wanted to attempt suicide. Dr. Soudeh confirmed the words of the demon regarding the situation of Christianity in her country and, unfortunately, as she said, it is very dangerous, since whoever accepts Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior is imprisoned, goes through various tortures and is finally killed.
Following her deliverance, Dr. Soudeh has already begun to notice positive changes in her. She no longer feels confused, she can freely communicate and associate with people by controlling her words and behavior, and her mind works normally to the glory of the Lord! Recognizing the infinite grace of God in her life and thanking Him for the freedom He gave her, she promised with tears of gratitude in her eyes, that from now on God will be in the first place of her heart until the end of her life!
GOD TRANSFORMED A TEENAGER’S LIFE OF DARKNESS INTO A LIFE OF LIGHT
15-year-old Vasilis Georgiev attended the Synagogue, Church Of All Nations Thessalonica, on Sunday, 27 September 2020, deeply moved, to share with everyone his past and through his testimony to glorify the name of Jesus Christ. Because proof that Jesus Christ is Alive is the changed lives of those who have hope in Him.
He began his testimony by explaining that when he was 8 years old his parents divorced and this had a huge impact on the formation of his character. He felt rejected by his parents, he believed that they did not love him and this caused him to be filled with anger, rage, hatred and a lot of pain. Initially, he lived with his mother who took care of him, but he was aggressive and hostile towards her. Everyone around him could notice this unpleasant change in his behavior. He started drinking alcohol, smoking and keeping bad company at an early age. After a year and a half, he left his mother’s home because they were not doing well and he went to stay with his father, who lived in England. There he started going to school but continued his downhill path. Once again he got involved with bad company and caused fights wherever he went. He was constantly fighting and beating anyone in sight for no reason at all, often causing so much damage that it resulted in them going to the hospital unconscious. As a result, he was expelled from seven schools because of his unruly conduct.
As time went on, he found himself immersed deeper in sin. At the age of 11, instead of enjoying his childhood, he was addicted to drugs and alcohol, and caused conflicts with older men. He had accumulated anger, hatred, pain, sadness and loneliness, causing him to be explosive in every interaction. As he vividly described, when he was angry his eyes darkened and it was as if he saw his enemy in front of him. He then manically hit anyone that stood before him. Moreover, as if all this were not enough, he began to associate with prostitutes at this tender age, even making this habit a part of his daily life. He began selling drugs at the age of 13 as a small-time hustler in the beginning. However, seeking to make more money, he became a full-blown drug dealer. Falling further into corruption, at the age of 14 he promoted women, further increasing his income. He also got involved in paid street fights and gambling, making a lot of money from this, as he was undefeated and did not lose a single “fight”.
He constantly wandered from country to country. Mostly in the countries, he traveled he stayed with relatives, but that did not stop him from attacking them and harming them physically. Wherever he went he was unwanted and that hurt him. He grew tired of his unexplainable behavior and wondered why he was not like all the other children of his age. But a voice inside him confused him, telling him that he was a man and that it was normal for him to behave like that. He was looking for an opportunity to change and free himself from the anger, hatred, rejection and rage that forced him to behave this way. He was tired of being unwanted and hated by people.
In an attempt to help him, his father forced him to visit the Synagogue, Church Of All Nations Thessalonica, to receive prayer from the man of God Harry. So, against his will, he came and took part in the prayer line. As he stood and waited, the man of God approached him and while he was praying for him, he gave Mr. Georgiev the following prophetic message: “Know that Jesus Christ loves you. That is why you are alive today. That is why He has kept you alive until now. You could have lost your life very easily if He did not protect you. The devil is chasing you to kill you, to end your life. But Jesus does not allow him because he sees your future and knows that there is hope for you. No matter what you did or did not do, He does not care. He does not care if our past was good or bad, He cares about our future. He cares that we go to Him, to attain salvation so that He can give us eternal life.
The fact that you are alive is a miracle from Jesus Christ. He keeps you alive so that you can be saved. But the devil has other plans for you and now you choose: Either you go close to God or you continue with your life and at some point the protection of God, which will not be forever, will leave you if you do not want to do the right thing. At that point, the devil will somehow bring your life to an end. What you do is your decision, but you do not have time to lose”.
Mr. Georgiev, having made the decision to give Jesus Christ the opportunity to change him, wanted to come back to SCOAN Thessalonica and receive an anointed prayer from the man of God Harry. That’s when the violent demon that was inside him and pushed him to live a sinful life was exposed and cast out by the man of God, in the name of Jesus Christ.
In the moment of his deliverance, Mr. Georgiev felt the burden he was carrying leave and his heart was flooded with love for the first time in his life! From that day on, he is happy and he has even noticed drastic changes in his behavior. His addictions to alcohol, smoking, drugs, prostitution and all the fighting stopped immediately and were replaced by gratitude and love for the Almighty God, who had mercy on him and offered him this wonderful change in his life! In his daily life, he now associates harmoniously with people, without difficulty or frustration. He communicates with them like a normal human being. Full of awe and thanksgiving, he advised all those in attendance to ask God for forgiveness, because He always forgives! Having personally tasted God’s forgiveness which delivered him from the death penalty, he is now determined to follow God’s plan for his life!
When we are sick and tired of our worldly business and frustrated in our worldly affairs, we are welcome to Christ! That is when we are ready to embrace the supreme order of Jesus Christ! The greatest love God has shown us is the opportunity to correct our mistakes!
Next, you can see some photos from the prayer line. God’s miracle-working power manifested mightily among those who sought God, overcoming every obstacle!
