My name is Athina Mavridou and I live here Thessaloniki. We would like to see the video of our sister joining the prayer line last week, when the man of God gave her a prophetic message. Let us watch. In the name of Jesus Christ! Out! Out in the name of Jesus Christ! Out, in the name of Jesus Christ! What is your picture doing in the hands of a witch doctor? I don’t know. A photograph of you in front of a witch doctor. Many years back. That is where the problem started. Not that you haven’t achieved anything in your life. But the satisfaction of life isn’t there. Jesus loves you. In the name of Jesus Christ. In the name of Jesus Christ! Don’t look for the person who did it. Don’t try to find who’s to blame. It happened, I’m telling you. It’s something that happened many years ago. In the name of Jesus Christ. Think about it. How many of us went there voluntarily or someone took us there. It’s the exact same thing. Nothing changes. You might claim that you’ve never gone to a witch doctor, but if someone went there and brought your picture along, it’s as if you went there yourself. Because what do they do there? They call upon your spirit, right there. You’re sleeping and you don’t understand what’s happening. But suddenly your spirit leaves and goes where it’s called. By techniques of witchcraft. Once your spirit goes there, they imprison it. 22 years ago. What I’m telling you happened 22 years ago. It happened 22 years ago. That’s why many people today just live their life without knowing who they are, why they live, why they walk, why they do the things they do. They don’t know. Their spirit has left them, it’s somewhere else and they’re just robots. They are programmed. In this way, many of us, our spirit is imprisoned somewhere. That’s why we don’t have a relationship with God. That’s why we cannot decide and say, “I’ll do this with my life”. Because you don’t have free will anymore. Someone else is controlling you. Look around you. The people you see are not what they seem. What I’m telling you happened 22 years ago. I want to shed light so you can understand
what exactly happened. You had a disagreement with a woman. Who you know and she knows you. While you were disagreeing and you were insisting and she was insisting, she said, “You will see what will happen to you”. If you sit and remember, you will understand what I’m saying. She said, “You will see what will happen to you”. She found a picture of you, took it to the witch doctor and asked him to bind you so you cannot do anything in life. That is how your problems started. Now since it is exposed, it’s over, you are free from it. I’m just telling you so you know where it started from. In the name of Jesus Christ. In the name of Jesus Christ. Thank you, Lord. Thank you, Jesus. Emmanuel! (God with us – Matthew 1:23) Everything is true. When I left the church, I sat down to think. I remembered that 25 years ago, the Lord blessed me with a street vending license. After that, for two years, my husband and I had no car and we went to the street market with a small table. We were taking buses. But when the Lord blessed me and I got a car, my workspace started to expand from one meter to two, from two meters to three. That’s when I started to have issues with some of my relatives. They wanted to come with me to the street market, they wanted me to write them fake invoices. At first, I was doing it but then my accountant asked me, “What are you doing? You will cause problems with the tax collectors, you will get a fine”. She scared me and I decided to stop. I will focus on my job, God has blessed me and it’s impossible to bring everyone else along. One particular relative was upset by it, she did not… Things didn’t go the way she expected. She was thinking I would cover them since I have the license and they would work next to me. So, when I refused, she was upset. I remember that we had an argument. At some point, we had a fight. From then onward, God continued to bless me. I got a second car, I got a house, the blessings of God never ceased. One house, two houses, three cars but I continued having sorrow inside me. I couldn’t find fulfillment in any of these things so I said, “I don’t want it, I’m giving it all away. I just want to find peace”. I was feeling a burden, sorrow inside me, I would cry out all of a sudden. Nothing of all of this satisfied me. My only comfort was going to church and communicating with God and my brethren. Once I returned home, I was sad again. At some point, sickness appeared. I was going from one doctor to the other. One doctor told me that I should check if Ι have inherited heart problems from my family, I found out it was from my father’s side. I did the same thing for my asthma, I inherited it from my mother’s side. The sicknesses were inherited to the next generations. When the SCOAN Thessalonica was opened, I was seeing the sicknesses, the demons. And I was telling myself, “I must have something similar, why shouldn’t I be happy? There’s something in me too”. These sicknesses must leave. Every time during the prayer line, I was praying. I was fighting, saying, “Every demonic influence, come out in the name of Jesus Christ!”. I was listening and praying along. But I saw that I wasn’t getting delivered from all this. Lately, I was feeling like I was suffocating. I was telling my doctor and my brethren that it’s as if I have cage here in the front, like there is a bird inside which is fluttering its wings. I was asking for someone to open the cage’s door so this bird will leave. I was asking for help. I was coming to the church on Sundays and during the mass prayers I was saying, “Today this will go, today this will go!”. Until this year came and I remembered some words that the man of God said, “If you don’t get tired of it and say enough is enough, it will not leave you!”. I was telling the Lord that I’m tired and I couldn’t take it anymore. When the church is moved to another location, I was feeling very caged. While I was holding the placard at the prayer line, it started to flutter inside me. Something started going up and down and I was crying, it was obvious. I felt like it was jumping around and I was crying. That was my day, that was my time. After this moment of the prayer, I have no problem. I’m telling my husband at home that I have joy. He glorifies God. I’m happy. I’ve started thinking differently, I see many things differently. I don’t hold grudges against anyone. I’ll be praying for God to bless them. I’m free! Hallelujah, let us clap for Jesus Christ! Amen! Our sister was delivered from these feelings of dissatisfaction. She was feeling unhappy, that nothing fulfills her but our God has set her free. And not only that, our sister has released forgiveness to the people who made her struggle and now she’s happy! Sister, tell us what are the changes you see now, how are you feeling and how are your thoughts? I have dreams, I have energy, I want to do the things I didn’t accomplish in the past. Above all, I have peace and calmness. It is apparent. Now I ask my husband, “What was I doing? Why was I behaving this way?”. I feel good. A burden has been lifted off me, I don’t know! Whenever I come here, I want to hug everyone! I feel joy. I can’t explain it. It cannot be described by words. I thank God! Hallelujah. Hallelujah. Indeed, a million thanks aren’t enough. Sister, we are happy about the change in your life and the wonderful miracle that you received. Now tell us, what is your advice to the people waiting for their divine meeting with Jesus Christ? I advise them not to think about the fact that they’ve been with the Lord for years now. The enemy of our soul is fighting day and night. At some point, he finds us vulnerable and comes to poison us. We should run to Jesus, before His Cross. That is where the blessings and healing are. Without God, we can’t do anything. We shouldn’t feel embarrassed. Our sister is telling us that whatever our problem is, we should run to God. No matter the situation we’re in. Thank you, sister. What is your promise to God Almighty, the Giver of this wonderful blessing in your life? He is the air I breathe and I’ll never stop being next to Him and breathing this air that is life itself, it is Jesus Christ Himself. I will live just for Him. I thank Him and glorify Him for delivering me, for blessing me and standing by me all these years. I thank Him. Amen. Hallelujah, let us clap for Jesus Christ!
