Pray For Your Enemies In Your Own Household

September 11 & 12, 2021

Part 1

Hello brothers and sisters and Heartdwellers family. May you all be blessed.

As you all are aware, it’s been a battle of faith trusting the Lord with the timing concerning Derrick and the City of God community in Ghana. I had just come back from my sister’s wedding, which I officiated, and it was such a wonderful ceremony. When I went home last year, it wasn’t so great, and I came back with more wounds than when I went. However, this time, the atmosphere was filled with joy, laughter, and so much peace as my parents gushed over me, now seeing that the road the Lord has chosen for me is not bad, but a blessing to the family. I kept saying, Lord, it feels like the winds of restoration are here.

I saw old friends and old cousins whom I had not talked to since I came to the mountain. Everyone was very nice and cordial. Blessed Mother really anointed the sermon I gave so there were many guests and family members who were greatly touched, which is all glory to God because he gave me the sermon two years ago in a vision. When I first arrived on the mountain, I saw myself officiating my sister’s wedding and giving this wonderful sermon which brought me to tears as I watched. Then I thought, I need to write these words down. So I did, and that is what I shared at the wedding. Can I say hushJesushush? and now #Hushmaryhush! She is so wonderful!

Upon coming back I was very hopeful for breakthrough and seeing the Lord’s promise of Derrick coming to pass very soon since summer is coming to an end. However, when I got home, he gave me a Rhema message about the importance of our enemies. I thought, Hmmm, okay Lord, that is not what I expected. Then he gave me the Rhema, Psalm 41:

Blessed are those who have regard for the weak; the LORD delivers them in times of trouble. 2  The LORD protects and preserves them—they are counted among the blessed in the land—he does not give them over to the desire of their foes. 3  The LORD sustains them on their sickbed and restores them from their bed of illness. 4  I said, “Have mercy on me, LORD; heal me, for I have sinned against you.” 5  My enemies say of me in malice, “When will he die and his name perish?”

6  When one of them comes to see me, he speaks falsely, while his heart gathers slander; then he goes out and spreads it around. 7  All my enemies whisper together against me; they imagine the worst for me, saying, 8  “A vile disease has afflicted him; he will never get up from the place where he lies.” 9  Even my close friend, someone I trusted, one who shared my bread, has turned against me. 10  But may you have mercy on me, LORD; raise me up, that I may repay them. 11  I know that you are pleased with me, for my enemy does not triumph over me. 12  Because of my integrity you uphold me and set me in your presence forever. 13  Praise be to the LORD, the God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting. Amen and Amen.

…which took my breath away a bit because it’s about a friend smiling in your face but really wanting your demise. I received that same Psalm before, about a friend betraying me, who was also at the wedding. I thought of all my old friends and cousins who really seemed sincere, but the Lord was making it clear that something was amiss and there were those around me who weren’t really for me as I thought.

I didn’t know who to suspect because there are a couple, and I decided to let it go all together and continue to keep my eyes and heart on Jesus and no longer hopeful in attachments to friends or friendships.

The following morning, after receiving the Rhema and coming back to the community in prayer, my aunt kept popping into my mind, so I began to pray for her. She is my mother’s older sister, and I had a dream about her a few months ago which was very disturbing. In the dream, I was in Ghana with some young adolescent girls, and someone told me my family members were at the door. I came really excited to see my family members and realized it was my uncle, whom I recognized, and an aunt of mine whom I didn’t recognize. She looked like my dad’s sister who had already passed away, and I know she is in heaven. Her face looked unclear like she had morphed it with another person’s face. They both were very apprehensive in greeting me and said I needed protection—then began to pour black pepper on top of the heads of the girls. One of the girls started acting like a chicken—I was stunned for a bit until I realized what they were doing and that it was witchcraft. Then I noticed a young white man behind me who then put orange pepper balls on my head as I immediately did the sign of the cross and I was unaffected by what he did and woke up.

I kept thinking, Jesus what does that mean? I knew my Uncle did a lot of ritual things in our family in the name of tradition. I couldn’t make out who this supposed aunt was. I felt in my spirit she was masking herself and she is a high-ranking witch. I sat with Jesus for a while until he revealed to me who it was, and my heart fell in my stomach because she is an aunt whom I consider to be my second mom. The Lord then gave me scriptures on Holy Spirit through Bible Promises, and Fear—that I shouldn’t be afraid, but I had discerned right. Then he made it clear, the young white man was also a witch who came under the guise of a volunteer for the City of God. Which was a strong warning for me to be very careful in my discernment as to whom we allow to be a part of the community in Ghana. Since having that dream, I have been praying for her. I kept thinking, maybe she did things out of tradition but not to ever intentionally hurt me—could she?

So fast forward to this morning as I prayed for her because she came to my mind. When I got home, I received a message from Derrick, saying that he went to her house and she and my cousin were talking very negatively about me after coming back from the wedding. Which really hurt and something sunk in deeply that she is among the enemies the Lord keeps bring up as I thought to myself, No Lord, it can’t be, please no. Then Jesus told me my inclinations were true and so was my cousin, as that really shocked me and my eyes began to water thinking, How can that be? They have Christian devotion at the house every morning in Ghana, my cousin is very involved in her church, and it was her wedding where I met Derrick. Her husband is one of Derrick’s best friends. He went on to say that they were the ones fighting this marriage between Derrick and me and that is why it’s been so hard. I was dumbfounded and cried in such shock and disbelief.

I never want to accuse anyone ever, especially of witchcraft, and especially in my own family because that is so common in Africa. Many prophets have come in services and called our family members of being witches and broken many families up. Some of the prophets were right and other times they are not so you have to be discerning. I kept thinking, Please, Jesus., I never wanted to believe it or be one of those claiming that a witch in my family is fighting my marriage. But I sat there, having to catch my breath, coming to terms with what he was telling me. Then I asked Jesus if this was true, to please confirm with me in a dream. He did. That night I had a dream. I was in a church where towards the end I was calling out for my mom, but another aunt turned around instead who was wearing my mother’s outfit. Derrick was in the dream, and we were together as I had stepped out on the church patio to call out to my mom and his head was out the window looking for her as well. As I continued to call out to my mother another woman showed up who was again in my mother’s outfit but now levitated to where I was. She looked at Derrick as the church building began to shake. Derrick was in a state of stupor, paralyzed, looking at the woman, and she said to me, “Derrick is mine.” I felt so helpless as I tried hitting Derrick to wake him up out of this stupor to no avail, and then I woke up.

I woke up feeling so discouraging wondering, why does she seem to have more power over me, or I seem so powerless in all my dreams? I then opened the Bible to a passage in Wisdom Ben Sira which is in the Catholic Bible. The title read, “Do Not Trust Your Dreams.” I thought, wow! And the passage went on to say, “To fear God alone.” As I felt the Lord telling me, do not trust the portrayal of me being powerless in the dreams or fear her or the lie that Derrick is hers, but I should fear God alone.

Then, the following morning in prayer, Jesus began to speak to me and revealed to me what had really happened to me as a child. as I was in tears and in shock with all he told me.

Part 2

Jesus began, “As a young child, you were initiated. They needed a girl and intended to use, your cousin, her daughter, but I took her to myself so she couldn’t be groomed for what they intended.”

As an aside here, the Lord is letting me know they intimated me into witchcraft as a child. I remember being little and they did some ritual by putting pepper on a sensitive part of my body as punishment for what I did. I would then later tell my aunt and my mom both, about that memory and they would laugh saying that never happened to me in Ghana. After that dream I had about pepper I looked it up and found out that this is an Asante witchcraft ritual specifically from the tribe my family is from. When I came to Ghana, I was 9 months and My aunt’s daughter would have been a bit older than I but close in age. She got sick a few months prior, so they had taken her to the hospital. However, they gave her medication, then brought her home and she died. Because of her grief, my mom decided to give me to her sister for a time. So my grandma had traveled to the US and was visiting at the time all when this happened and they decided to have me go with my grandma to live in Ghana to console her sister, my aunt, at the loss of her child. I always wondered out of the 7 children why I was taken to Ghana to live there for a while—and now I know.

Jesus continued,

“It was very strategic to have you be given to them. Your mother was ignorant in much of this and was favored by your grandmother, so she was kept away from much of the traditional teachings and rituals. She was far too sensitive and pure for things like that, and that was My Mercy. So your grandmother let her be and began to raise your auntie to one day take the seat. When I removed the stool from your family that was My great mercy so that they wouldn’t continue going deeper in darkness. It was at that time I began to bring conviction to your grandmother, and little by little, she began to see the error of her ways and upbringing with witchcraft.”

And here, guys, Jesus is referring to the Golden Stool which is supposedly a royal and divine throne of kings of the Ashanti people and the ultimate symbol of power in Asante which is the tribe my family is from. According to legend a High Priest supposedly caused the stool to descend from the sky and land on the lap of the first Asante king. So it’s a symbol of leadership, but the Golden Stool is believed to house the spirit of the Asante people—living, dead, and yet to be dead. It’s pure witchcraft and demonic, but they don’t see that or want to.

Each stool is understood to be the seat of the owner’s soul— so, like a king or queen. If someone becomes a king or queen, they do a ritual ceremony and put the soul of that person upon that person upon that golden stool—which is pure gold. And when not in use it is placed against a wall so that other souls passing by may relax on it. The Golden Stool is the royal throne and must never touch the ground. So, my grandma was the sister of former Prime Minister Busia of Ghana and became Queen of our town in Ghana and our family held the stool for a while until a coup happened to overthrow my uncle’s reign as prime minister and my grandma no longer was Queen, thank God. However, my family is still held in high regard in Ghana and now presently the family is fighting to get the stool back. But I am praying against it and I know that won’t happen in Jesus’ name!

Jesus continued, “As a young child, you were given over to several altars in the Marine Kingdom.”

And as an aside here guys, the Marine Kingdom is the demonic kingdom of water. That is where you get mermaids and mermen. These are real figures, but they are all demons. People will go to the water and call upon spirits, water spirits, and many times give them access to their bodies sexually. They lie down and the spirit, demons consummate with the person like succubus and incubus spirit who sleep with you. Then a covenant is made with that person and powers are given to the degree of the person’s sacrifice. So the element of choice these demons and this kingdom operate in is water.

Jesus continued, “They wanted to raise you to be one day Queen over that kingdom and rule on the stool in your family. You were destined for that if it were not for the prayers of My Mother. She has always been with you. I began to have your parents be sick of heart and rearranged circumstances to have you back in their care for a period of time.”

I returned back to my parents when I was 5 years old.

“Many of the elders in your father’s and mother’s house are aware of this and that is why you have always been the apple of the eye of many—not because they loved you, but because they knew what you were called to become.

“There were monitoring spirits assigned to you, day and night to watch your every movement, to set up relationships and situations to cause you to stray from the path I had for you. Your poor mother was so easily moved by the opinions of the elders in the family and, by nature, is a humble woman who highly honors and respects her elders, but I am causing her to fear, honor, and respect Me alone, not the opinions, or counsel of men. She unknowingly would speak of the many issues in your family giving them all the information needed without work, to cause your family to suffer as it has.”

Wow, guys! My family has really suffered— after fifteen years of a beautiful marriage my parents began to drift apart, and the marriage came under attack by an adulterous woman. Then my brother was almost killed by his first wife and then went to prison for dealing substances. My sisters were having children out of wedlock one by one, and many abortions. And one of my sisters began to battle mental issues and tried to commit suicide three times and was admitted into a Psych Ward for a while. These were some of the darkest times for my family that grew up with people thinking we were like the Huxtables from the Bill Cosby Show—then we became a family of dysfunction, and brokenness—and now, realizing all of those were curses and assignments upon us. Though they landed, none of the weapons prospered. Everyone is okay now—we thank God that His mercy has prevailed amidst all the attacks—and we will one day very soon, testify of His great mercy towards us all!

Jesus continued, “However, I have used all of these things that I permitted and allowed for my glory to be a powerful testimony of My firm hand upon your family. Despite their plans for ruin, I turned it and planned it for restoration. Your aunt’s heart has been darkened with a thirst for power and honor among men that can lead any soul astray into destruction.” By the way guys, she is a Ghanaian Ambassador. “She has now groomed her oldest girl for this. Although coming across as pious, there is much that goes on in darkness and in secret family meetings. Do not be afraid, they are more afraid of you than you are of them. Love them, My beloved little one; love them through your prayers because it will be your prayers that will bring them into repentance and deliverance.

“Remember, remember I told you that once you shared the mission (City of God,) your enemies would know. I’m sorry you have found out in this way that some of your enemies are in your own household, but I will turn things around. Pray that they respond to the graces and conviction as your grandmother has. She is with me now, but spent time in purgatory for her past offenses.”

As an aside, right after my grandmother died, I had a dream that she, my mom, and my aunt were kneeling down in a room with the window open praying towards the east and repenting for witchcraft. There was a long line of people there to see my grandma. My aunt’s eldest daughter was in the dream trying to get me to dress up in nice clothes in a broken-down bathroom—water was leaking everywhere. I was perplexed as to why they were repenting for witchcraft. However, my cousin was not at all disturbed by that and I woke up.

“She is one of the main intercessors for your family,” Jesus is talking about my grandma. “… and now, on this side of Heaven, carries a burden to see the whole
family delivered completely from witchcraft and serving two masters. I took you from the mire—I took you from the grasp of Satan himself and have set you upon a rock, a solid foundation in me—set you apart to be My queen, My bride of the King of Kings and the Lord of Lords. No one could have written this story better than I. I have delivered you from the covenant of witchcraft and given you My new convent written upon your heart. You see, where Satan schemes, I have a plan, far outwitting and better that trumps his plan, every time. Although your aunt raised up her oldest to take her place, she neglected the younger and that is the one I too, set apart for myself and used her to draw you to me, that you might follow me, and you did.”

The LORD is so amazing, it’s so true because it was this cousin, my aunt’s youngest daughter, who gave me the prophetic word to leave my pageant business and follow Jesus. It was that one word that changed my whole life into what it is now. Wow, God is amazing; using my enemy’s daughter to draw me to him.

Jesus continued,

“You are a tool of instrument for your family and enemies alike. I love you, My bride, and will answer your prayers for them and they will come to see themselves in the light of My mirror as all their deeds of wickedness done in darkness, are exposed, and brought to the light. They will taste my salvation and that is because of your prayers.

“Derrick is entangled with powers far beyond his understanding and knowledge. That that will soon change. Derrick does not belong to them, but to Me, and I will have the final word. I will bring him out of the shadows of shame, fear, and blindness he has been in for so long. I will reveal my presence, my love, and the truth of where he stands with me and reveal his true enemies. He will indeed fall to his knees in awe at my mercy. You have been a threat to the. kingdom of darkness. This marriage has been a threat to the kingdom of darkness, and I had to hide all this from you until the appointed time.”

At this point I began to feel anxious, and worry overtaking me, wondering what I should do, how to pray, whom I can tell to really have my back because it has been a fierce and weary battle. Then He brought the Heartdwellers Ghana family and intercessor group to my mind. Where I was going to reach out to one or two African brothers and sisters in Christ who really know how to deal with prayer points like this. However, the Lord immediately chided me in Bible Promises and gave me “Laziness”. Then He made it clear that I had a powerful intercessory group and should let them pray for me and with me instead. Jesus answering my thoughts said,

“Have peace, My bride, this little motley crew of Gideons 300 that I have put together are so powerful. They are so little that they don’t see that, and you don’t see that because of your littleness. That is really good.

“But, when you all band together and pray, Heaven and Earth move according to My Will and for My Glory. Don’t ever forget or underestimate the power of your prayers. Pray for this soul, (your aunt), your family, and Derrick for seven days and you will see My hand move to bring my promise about and see My hand of deliverance. It’s time to attack the final blow to this battle as I deliver your enemies into your hands. That you may then lift them up and immerse them in My Mercy, handing them over to My Mother’s Immaculate Heart so that they will be saved.”

That was the end of Jesus’ message.

Wow, family, it was a lot to take in when I received this message. And the following morning in prayer, I cried and cried in thanksgiving at the goodness of God. God is soooo good. We never know when he allows things in our lives, what he is saving us from, or even many times, protecting us from. And Blessed Mother what can say? but, I give my whole life in your hands, Mama, for your intercession for taking a child who was destined to be a queen in witchcraft to now serving the Queen of Heaven and a bride of Christ. Thank you, Mama. I will continue to tell the whole world about her role, her love, and the power of her intercession. So I and the whole entire Heartdwellers family have been praying for seven days for Derrick. It ended about four days ago and I heard from Derrick. And on the seventh day of our prayer, he officially broke off with the dead relationship that he was in, which was actually an assignment from them to lure him away from God’s will, and this marriage. We praise God for this small breakthrough and believing that he will soon finish writing the end of this amazing, winding love story that only He and Blessed Mother can get the glory for.

He then gave me a Rhema that said, “Sometimes delays in your plans are God’s protection.” I thought, Wow Lord, thank you for protecting not only Me and Derrick by delaying this marriage for four years, but me and the girls going to Ghana to protect us until the perfect time of our departure. So I am resting and waiting on the Lord and on His timing, having full faith what he said will come to pass in His perfect timing. Thank you all for your continuous prayers for this situation because you all are now part of our story.

“God is so rich in mercy, and he loved me so very much, that even while I was dead because of my sins, he gave me life when he raised Christ from the dead. (It is only by God’s special favor that I have been saved!) For he raised me from the dead along with Christ, and I am seated with Him in heavenly places—all because I am one with Christ Jesus. And so God can always point to me as an example of the incredible wealth of his favor and kindness towards me, as shown in all he has done for me through Christ Jesus.” (Ephesians 2:4-7)

And may I live to testify and boldly tell the world of this for all the days of my life! All honor and glory belong to you alone Lord! God bless you until the next message!

From Jesus With Love

My Name Is Mary Elisha I started this blog 6 years ago on my journey walking with Jesus and never knew all that he had in store for me. It has been a journey of tears, trust and confidence in him. Knowing that He is my loving spouse and he wouldn't lead me astray however he has given many suprises along the way! lol Upon fully surrendering my life to Jesus, he has completely turn my world right side up. Filled me with his spirit and showed himself in supernatural ways. He has completely left me in awe leaving me with the thought.....(as most Holy Spirit filled followers of Christ also say) why didn't I surrender 15 years ago! lol. When I started this blog I was a 30 years old zealous for the Lord and desiring to make his love known because it tranformed my life. However, I didn't know the way and the road in which he would take me. It is the way of the cross, the way of holiness and the way of love. Living a life seperated from the world and compltely concecrated to him. I no longer belong to myself, but to him as he has led me to a life of hiddeness and deep intimacy I didn't know was so avalialble for all who would make their lives, their hearts his home. He has given me a new name, a renewed purpose and a heavenly family who is so very present and so real to me. Saints who cheer me on, give me council and pray for me everyday to ensure I do the Lords will and the greatest gift of all He has led me to his Mother! Who has always been My Mother just never knew it. I love Mother Mary, she is my heart, my friend and confidant and continues to prepare me to a worthy bride to her son, Jesus. It is she, who has handpicked me for this mission and to run the community "City of God: Sacred Heart Refuge" in Ghana, West Africa. This is her mission and her ministry as a gift to Jesus and I just get to be her handmaiden. Heartdwellers Ghana is an extention of Heartdwellers ministry by Mother Clare and Father Ezekiel from Still Small Voice Channel. Jesus has taught us about divine intimacy with him. As we dwell in his heart, He and the Father come to make their home within us. (John Where Jesus is all of heaven is as well because the kingom of God is within. So here may you come to get fresh manna from Jesus and any ther saints who may want to give us council, encouragment and exhortation that we may finish this race of faith and run to win the prize. To be a bride spotless, blameless adorened with purity, carying the fire of charity and zeal for our fathers glory. That we maybe ready for him when He comes back for us. Our Lord, Jesus Christ is amazing the intimate you become with him the more in awe he leaves you. I hope this blog draws you nearer to our Lord and you began to open the ears and the eyes of your heart to all that he has to say to you and show you. All of these messages are from Jesus with love...to you. May you be blessed by his words of life. God bless you!
