All victims of Satanic Ritual Abuse (SRA) have within them a wide variety of demons each with specialised subversive functions. In a general sense, their function is to maintain control over the victim to serve their own ends, so that she cannot entirely function as an independent being with free-will. In addition, their function is to interfere with, and prevent, any attempt by the victim to worship Yahweh, our Heavenly Father, through Yah'shua (Jesus) His Son. The presence of demons is therefore synonymous with the victim worshipping Satan to one degree or another. Because the presence of demons is therefore blasphemous (since the human body is a temple of the Ruach Elohim or Spirit of God - 1 Cor.6:19), giving worship in the flesh at least, to a rebel angel Lucifer, Torah strictly forbids any activity by humans that give demons residency rights (Dt.18:10-12). The full ripening of demonic activity in those under their control leads to the most abominable of all sins which is the sacrifice of ones sons and daughters to Satan and his demonic hoardes, commonly to the demon Molech (Ps.106:37; Dt.32:17; 2 Chr.11:15).
One of the reasons the victims of SRA are so heavily demonised is that at various times in their lives they are forced to murder their own children in ritual sacrifices. This is one of the most traumatic experiences a person can have, almost invariably leading to personality fracturing. And although the victims are of diminished responsibility (especially if they are young), demonisation nevertheless results when, quite understandably, they subsequently come to fear and hate their tormentors who force them into such abominable acts. Though in nearly all instances these victims are not morally responsible for these killings (since it is the last thing they would ever want to do), because they were forced against their wills - there is nevertheless a legal accountability and responsibility which give the demons their right to enter and control them. Because the victims are innocent in Yahweh's eyes of any complicity in murder, torture and abuse, they are quickly forgiven and delivered when they turn to their Redeemer, Yah'shua the Messiah (Jesus Christ).
Anciently, as now, demonisation was very common, as we read in the New Testament. Some of Yah'shua's greatest miracles, which are now being done by His followers today too, consisted of expelling wicked spirits from victimised persons (Mt.8:31-32; 9:33-34; Mk.1:39; 7:26-30; Lk.8:2; 13:32), which authority He transferred to His apostles (Mt.10:8; Mk.3:14-15; 6:13; Lk.9:1; 10:17).
Anything offered to demons - unlawful thoughts, emotions, or deeds - prevents us from communing with Yahweh. Thus Paul wrote:
Thus worshipping a guru or a statue of the Virgin Mary, or what either may represent to you, is a sacrifice to shadim (demons). But what specifically are you sacrificing to them - what are you actually giving them? The answer may surprise you.
"Behold Yisra'el (Israel) who are by the flesh. Do not those who eat the sacrifices become partakers of the altar? Therefore what do I say? That a (wooden/stone) idol is something, or a sacrifice (like meat) of an idol is something? No. But that thing which the heathen sacrifice, they sacrifice to shadim (demons) and not to Elohim (God). And I do not want you to be partakers with shadim (demons). You are not to drink the cup of our Adon (Lord) and the cup of devils; and you are not able to partake with the table of our Adon (Lord) and with the table of shadim (demons)" (1 Cor.10:18-21, HRV; co. Ex.12:43ff.).
There are two things which demons lust after because they do not have it within themselves, and that is the life in the blood and the life in the breath which is what gave life to the blood in the first place.
When a person dies, their body disintegrates in the ground (or is burned to ashes) and their spirit departs from them (e.g. Ps.146:4):
The word 'spirit' here translates the Hebrew ruach which means 'breath'. This is the life-force which Yahweh-Elohim breathed into the first man, Adam, thus bringing life to the body previously fashioned out of earthy materials. It is the equivalent of the Greek pneuma from which we get such words in English as 'pneumatic' and 'pneumonia'. Though both words have extended meanings (that go beyond the sense of 'breath'), their root meaning is always 'breath' or 'wind'. To convey the essence of this truth, we read of Yah'shua (Jesus), in a post-resurection manifestation, conferring the Ruach haQodesh (Holy Spirit) in a most interesting way:
"Remember him -- before the silver cord is severed, or the golden bowl is broken; before the pitcher is shattered at the spring, or the wheel broken at the well, and the dust returns to the ground it came from, and the spirit (ruach) to Elohim (God) who gave it" (Eccl.12:6-7, NIV).
In English we have rendered the Hebrew Ruach haQodesh and the Greek Pneuma Hagion as 'Holy Ghost' and 'Holy Spirit', but a much more accurate rendition would be Holy Breath, which is why Yah'shua (Jesus) breathed on His disciples rather than confer it by the laying on of hands which is the way we confirm (chrismate) people. This was done, moreover, after Yah'shua (Jesus) was resurrected and glorified. The same breath that Yahweh-Elohim (the Godhead, including the pre-incarnate Yah'shua/Jesus) breathed on the body of Adam, giving him physical life (blood and breath), is that which the resurrected Yah'shua (Jesus) breathed on his disciples giving their spirits eternal life! The first was psychic energy, and the second, spiritual. Since spiritual breath is the death knoll to demons, theiy fear it like nothing else. What they are after is psychic energy which is why all their violent rituals have as their chief purpose to get their victims to expire this valuable energy which they so desperately need to live and be empowered by.
"And when he had said this, He breathed on (Gk. emphusaeo) them, and said to them, 'Receive the Ruach haQodesh (Holy Spirit). If you forgive the sins of any, they are forgiven them; if you retain the sins of any, they are retained'" (Jn.20:22.-23, NKJV).
The breath which the resurrected Yah'shua (Jesus) breathed on His disciples is not the same as the ordinary breath of unsaved mortals. Neither is the breath of those filled with the Ruach Elohim (Spirit of God) which also empowers their literal breath.
During deliverance of an SRA victim the demons will commonly restrict her breath so that she feels as though she is suffocating or choking. This is not usually to kill her but to frighten her into not being delivered. How the demons do this is not important at this stage. What is important is that breath is the element that is being denied the victim.
This breath does not just consist of oxygen, moreover. There have been times when a victim has been afflicted by a demon and she cannot breathe, but has not yet taken the decision to yield herself to Yah'shua (Jesus), then we have administered a kind of mouth-to-mouth recussitation. This has not, however, been merely to provide oxygen to the victim's lungs. Every believer who possesses the Ruach Elohim (Spirit of God) has what may be termed 'charged breath' - charged, not electrically, but spiritually. Once this 'charged air' is forced into the lungs, it not only provides vital oxygen for natural respiration but also agitates the demons into a frenzy because they hate pure Ruach Elohim (Spirit of God)! The reaction is similar to a Ruach- (Spirit-) filled minister laying his hands on a demonised victim - it makes the demons squirm because of the presence of Ruach (Spirit) which, as I have remarked upon already, can be passed through human contact just as demons can. Bringing a victim to Christ and receiving the gift of the Ruach haQodesh (Holy Spirit) is therefore of the utmost importance.
It is not a pleasant thing to have your breath denied, and demons know this. It makes people panic because they are afraid to die. I have experienced demons' blocking of the breath of victims hundreds of times and not once has the victim died. When this kind of oppression is brought to bear, courage is essential. But this is never enough if the victim refuses to yield her heart to Yah'shua (Jesus) - a deliverance minister can bind the demons, causing pneumatic oppression to briefly cease, but unless the grounds for their being there in the first place are removed, they will simply oppress again later. That is why victims are so often convinced that deliverance is impossible and that the demons are all-powerful. Both of these beliefs are founded in pure lies but which seem to be true when you honestly believe your life is about to be snuffed out.
Another thing which surprises victims to learn is that demons, which are fallen angels, are also called spirits in the sense in which we use the words ruach and pneuma (Mt.8:16). Like us, they are 'spirits', but unlike us, they have no physical bodies. It is our bodies they parasitise. These spirits are not merely 'breath' or an invisible force, but are personalities too. Their bodies are spiritual, like ours, and can wander the spiritual and astral dimensions. They have form, even though they are able to shape-shift and appear in different ways. People sufficiently demonised are known to utilise this power to shift the shape of their physical bodies too. I personally know of instances where those involved in voodoo in Nigeria are able to temporarily change their human form into that of an animal. Our Dracula, vampire and werewolf legends stem from such practices. Fantastic though it may sound to those not familiar with dark powers, they are nevertheless true, though without all the Hollywood embelishments.
Demons are spirit-brings without physical bodies and we are spirit-beings with physical bodies. One day, in the resurrection, our spirits and bodies will be inseparably connected by the resurrection power of Yah'shua (Jesus). The demons, however, will remain spirits, and without human hosts, on which they rely for their life. In addition to being spirit-beings, they also 'breathe', only not physical air as we do. There is a corresponding breathing on the psychic and spiritual planes too. This I have personally experienced. Demons are able to 'breathe' our psychic energy when we release it through unlawful practices or if it is forced out of people by ritual abuse. When a person is afraid, they literally 'leak' this substance out and provide the demons with a free meal. The intense competition between demons and demonic hierachies is not just because of power-lust but also because there is a limited supply of psychic food. For them, it is the law of the jungle - survive or die.
Occultists will tell you that air passing through human beings becomes energetically charged, and they are right. Exhaled air which, to the physical sense, is but harmful carbon dioxide, is nevertheless charged with energy. The Hindus call this prana. It is not, however, Ruach haQodesh (Holy Spirit) which is a quality that the breath of Yahweh's own children possess, the 'holy breath' that demons so loathe. When I have been ill with respiratory problems and have experienced breathing difficulties, I have often petitioned the Ruach haQodesh (Holy Spirit) to animate my breath and lungs by asking Yahweh to breathe on me and have experienced relief. But the breath of Yahweh can do much more than that:
Never undervalue divine breath. The scriptures have many references to it which are worth studying. Daniel said to a pagan king: "the Elohim (God) who holds your breath in His hand and owns all your ways, you have not glorified" (Dan.5:23, NKJV). Satanists in particular should remember that their breath is in the hands of Yahweh and He can remove it whenever He chooses. It is not their own. Their lives, now and eternity, are in His hands, and always have been.
"Prophesy to the breath, prophesy, son of man, and say to the breath, 'Thus says the Yahweh-Elohim: "Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe on these slain, that they may live'. So I prophesied as He commanded me, and breath came into them, and they lived, and stood upon their feet, an exceedingly great army" (Ezek.37:9-10, NKJV).
Demons know all about breath. Satanists know how, for instance, to transfer the spirits of their dead followers, along with all their demons, from one demonised person to another. That's right, the dead are able to live in the living and temporarily escape imprisonment by Yahweh's malakim or angels. One satanic ritual involves the transfer of the last breath of the dying satanist to an SRA victim, for example, along with all the other dead human spirits in him. This involves placing the mouth of the victim over the dying person and then literally 'sucking' the life force out of him, a kind of spiritual vampirism. With the last breath, the dying man's own spirit is transferred to the victim, all his demons, and all his ancestors, if they have been transferred to him in that manner. SRA victims can be specially prepared to contain all their ancestors for hundreds and sometimes thousands of years if they are in a satanic blood line. This is how each generation becomes more powerful than the next one, because all the evil powers are in this way 'inherited'. In one person I am currently ministering to, ancestors are present within her from 600 years ago when an ancestor made the decision to serve Satan with the first human offering. Some of the alters within this victim speak of being empowered with psychic gifts by ancestors which are within her physical body. When the demonsied alter tried to 'read' me, however, she was met with an impenetrable veil. It was the first time she had seen the blood-covering of Yah'shua (Jesus).
I have encountered this phenomenon elsewhere in my ministry. I knew an Indian Pentecostal who related to me how he had this strange urge to possess the breath of his uncle. When his uncle died he recounted how, in his spirit, he acquired that last breath. He seemed to think there was nothing wrong with this and knew nothing of demonic matters. One day, however, when I was sleeping at his home, I heard him on the telephone speaking to a woman. As I listened I saw a vision of him with a serpent tongue flicking in and out of his mouth. It was then that I discovered that he was demonised and subsequently concluded that in all likelihood that his dead uncle was living in him ... together with goodness knows what.
It should come as no surprise, therefore, to discover that Torah forbids intimate kissing except between married persons, for reasons which must by now be obvious to the reader. There is a good reason for chastity. There is also a reason why prostitutes dislike kissing their clients even though they are more than willing to demonise themselves, and their clients, through the act of unlawful sexual intercourse. They have this understanding that there is something rather special about mouth-to-moth contact. For this reason I do not permit it in my household except between husbands and wives, and teach the same to those whom I shepherd as a pastor. If you are not convinced then consider what John reveals in the Book of Revelation:
Now pause and conside this. Demonic breath here is clearly stated to be able to give an inanimate object the power of speech, not by the throwing of someone's voice (ventriloquism), but from within. Demons, as all should know by now, can inhabit inanimate objects like jewellry, stones, crystals, books, etc.. This is the basis of how satanic implants work (small objects inserted into victims' bodies which have demons attached to them and serve as homing beacons so that the satanic coven can always know where their victim is).
"Then I saw another beast coming up out of the earth, and he had two horns like a lamb and spoke like a dragon. And he exercises all the authority of the first beast in his presence, and causes the earth and those who dwell in it to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men. And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast, telling those who dwell on the earth to make an image to the beast who was wounded by the sword and lived. He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed. He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads, and that no one may buy or sell except one who has the mark or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him who has understanding calculate the number of the beast, for it is the number of a man: His number is 666" (Rev.13:11-18, NKJV).
Now demons can speak through human beings too, and they can do this in two ways: (1) They can either speak through the victim whom they are controlling 'behind the scenes' or they can completely take over the bodily functions of the victim and speak directly. When they do this - and I have heard it many times - it is an eerie, unearthly sound that is unmistakably not human and which resonates in a peculiar way. They utilise the victim's breath for this purpose.
Smoking tobacco and other narcotics which are inhaled also give rights to demons which is why quitting tobacco can be so difficult. There is more to tobacco than nicotine! Make sure you protect your breathing when you are putting on your spiritual armour, especially if you are anywhere near pagan rituals involving the use of incense, burning josticks, and the like.
Finally, a word to those SRA victims who get oppressed by demons in their breathing (asthma is a demonic problem which can be genetically inherited through generational curses) when they want to come to Yah'shua (Jesus) for deliverance. Please be aware that the demons are trying to frighten you rather than kill you. Parasites rarely kill their hosts. I have witnessed this phenomenon so many times, along with other demonic tricks (caused by pain-giving demons) like spontaneous cutting, intense migraine-like headaches, and indeed almost any and every kind of intense pain imaginable. So long as you have chosen Yah'shua (Jesus) to be your Saviour and Deliverer, and are willing to call upon Him in complete faith and self-yielding, He will not disappoint you. You have this promise:
All you have to do is exercise faith. Trust Him. And He will deliver, heal and forgive you.
"Therefore submit to Elohim (God). Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to Elohim (God) and He will draw near to you" (James 4:7-8, NKJV).
