haSatan is working hard to make sure the entire world bows down to him in worship and allegiance to him is quite evident; on the streets, in the schools, among the leaders of government and industry. He captures people’s allegiance through enticement by worldly pleasures, lust of the eyes and the flesh. Romans 1:29 details haSatan’s allurements even more completely; being filled with all unrighteousness, fornication, wickedness, covetousness, maliciousness; full of envy, murder, debate, deceit, malignity; whisperers, backbiters, haters of God, despiteful, proud, boasters, inventors of evil things, disobedient to parents, without understanding, covenant-breakers, without natural affection, implacable, unmerciful: who knowing the judgment of God, that they which commit such things are worthy of death, not only do the same, but have pleasure in them that do them.
These things are activities that people engage in with a conscious choice. I call them the front two windows of your house; window one – things that you and YHVH know about you, and window two – things that you and YHVH and others know about you. This is the arena of curses, soul ties, generational iniquities, things that you know and can deal with, if you chose to, openly. But there are also two windows in the back of your house/ mind where activity goes on that you are not (necessarily) aware of. These windows are: what only God knows about you and what God and others know about you, but you are not aware of. This is where haSatan weaves his web and snares the unaware and unsuspecting (most effectively) just like a spider weaves its web. Let’s think about a spider web for a moment. Have you ever gone outside in the morning only to walk through a spider web that was not there the evening before and half an hour later when you came back that way there was the spider web in your path again? You brushed it away once but the tenacity and perseverance of the spider remade its web in record time.
Have you ever watched a fly get caught in the spider’s web? The fly gets tangled in the fine threads of the web and soon here comes the spider to wrap up the fly – immobilizing it, leaving it to marinate for a future meal. When a second fly is caught in the spider’s web and the spider comes out to immobilize that fly the entire web is affected by the spider’s actions, is it not? So now, let us put this analogy into practical terms for us: haSatan and his minions are constantly weaving webs for the specific purpose of immobilizing us – he does not want us to be or do kingdom activities. If he can’t get to us through the front of our house he is very effective at getting to us through the back of our house. Question: have you ever begun your day in fine spirits only suddenly to find a black mood has dropped over you – out of nowhere? Where did that come from? I submit to you that you were experiencing being caught in the web – either fresh caught yourself or feeling the effects of haSatan’s movement on the web as he wraps up another victim. haSatan is constantly weaving webs; in this space in history I believe it is virtually impossible to not be effected by his web making, but here is the good news – we don’t have to remain trapped, YHVH has provided a way of escape! Here is what YHVH shared with me a few years back that has made such a difference for me and actually everyone to this date that I have shared this simple tool with.
When you realize that you are entangled in one of haSatan’s webs and by this I mean when you wake up to the fact that you are not being the reflection of Yashua, or behaving like the born-again, Ruach filled, known as a disciple of Messiah by the love you have for your husband, wife, child, friend, neighbor, stranger in your gate, or living in the fruits of the Ruach haKodesh; you must at that moment stop and ask YHVH to sever you out of haSatan’s web. If you delay one moment you are only furthering your own misery – for haSatan only comes to steal, kill and destroy.
This is the first half of the prayer YHVH taught me to pray: Abba, I am caught in a web, I realize I have said and done unkind things that are not pleasing to you or edifying to my family, friends, (etc.). Please forgive me for indulging in self-pity, depression, despondency, despair, rejection, (whatever it is that you are indulging in at this moment), and please sever me out of this web of haSatans. I pray that you would sever any and all unholy, unrighteous web line connections between myself and ___________.
Example: myself and my husband; myself, my husband, my child, my child’s wife. Myself and the postman or the grocery store clerk or the airline ticket counter agent, anyone that you had a connection with at the time you realize you are caught in a web.
(Remember how a web works, all the threads are connected, you need to pray through the connections, to pray for someone to be severed out of the web that you don’t have a connection to would be practicing witchcraft in my opinion.)
You are praying about Unholy, UNrighteous web line connections to be severed – you are not asking for relationships to be severed. Asking for the unholy, unrighteous connections to be severed will, you will find surprisingly enough, provide space for wonderful things to happen. The first wonderment will be in YOU! Your attitude will change, immediately. Look for it – let yourself be surprised!
When this revelation was being revealed to me, I asked for something in scripture to ground this. I was taken to Genesis and the story of Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden. When they ate of the forbidden tree they had to leave the garden and a cherubim with a flaming sword was stationed at the entrance of the garden to make sure they stayed out. What the Ruach shared with me is the second part of the severing out of the web prayer. Isaiah 58:11 and Jeremaih 31:12, refer to us as a garden and this is the symbolism I am going to use in the second half of this prayer.
The second part of the prayer YHVH taught me to pray: Abba, thank you for removing the unholiness, unrighteousness from my garden, thank you for stationing a holy Cherubim at the entrance of my garden to preserve the purity of my garden and to stand as a guard to prevent the unholiness, unrighteousness from coming back into my garden. I thank you, for you are trustworthy and merciful, abounding in patience and loving-kindness to a thousand generations of those that love you. Thank you for loving me and hearing and answering my prayer for deliverance – because of the shed blood of Yashua. Amen
It’s simple and very effective. This understanding and prayer is a well-used arrow in my arsenal of spiritual warfare tools.
