Spiritual Strongholds - Deception & Lies
What are the 2 most predominant strongholds in America?
Rebellion and Witchcraft. America was conceived in the Spirit of Rebellion against God.
Jezebel, Python and Leviathan are also very predominant spirits at work in America. Further study of these spirits reveals the devastating oppression, deception and control these spirits inflict on their victims.
Strongholds are built upon deception and lies that we've accepted into our minds. So how do you counter a lie? How do you counter deception? With the truth. Where do we find the truth? In the Word of God, the King James Bible. As we can see in Ephesians, this weapon is known as the sword of the Spirit:
Ephesians 6:17: And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
Strongholds are incorrect thinking patterns and patterns of behavior that are not pleasing to God and not in obedience to the Word of God. There are areas and patterns in our minds that have been programmed to think and act contrary to the Word of God, the King James Bible.
God has to draw a person to Himself. John 6:44: No man can come to me, except the Father which hath sent me draw him: and I will raise him up at the last day.
It is the goodness of God that leads to repentance. Romans 2:4: Or despisest thou the riches of his goodness and forbearance and longsuffering; not knowing that the goodness of God leadeth thee to repentance?
The truth from the King James Bible (God & His Word) pulls down the strongholds. God's Wisdom is found only in the King James bible - the Truth.
In the government owned and operated education systems, professional training, military training, police academies, colleges, universities, and all aspects of the satanic worldly systems, our minds are programmed to think contrary to the Word of God. The worldly systems program us to act in ways and speak words that are contrary to the Word of God. The satanic world systems teach lies and deception.

American's are programmed early in life to worship and idolize the flag. The pledge of allegance is idolatry and instills the spirit of pride deep within the American citizen.
People will not see or understand the spiritual realities in the world in which we live if they do not receive Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior first. Their pride, ego, self righteousness and the demonic strongholds imparted to them as a result of being trained and programmed by the Satanic systems will not allow them to see spiritual realities.
The average American christian does not understand true humility. They have so many spiritual strongholds that have been generationally imparted to them, they do not see or understand how to walk in the freedom Jesus Christ died to give them.
Consider the reaction of the population after 9-11. Flags were flown from vehicles, placed in windows of homes, everywhere - American pride arose with the attitude "don't tread on me." The reaction should have been one of humility. Going on their knees before God in true repentance, admitting "God, forgive me, I am a sinner."
The average American christian thinks being humble is "living below their means." They do not understand what it means to be broken before a holy God or how to live in obedience to presenting themselves a living sacrifice as their reasonable service. They depend on their human reasoning, intellect, and other idols. They are programmed and deceived. Their prideful strongholds do not allow them to see spiritual reality.
Spiritually speaking, Paul defines strongholds as an “argument or high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God”. A stronghold is a point of operation from where Satan can keep the unbeliever captive or the believer incapacitated. See 2nd Corinthians below.
2 Corinthians 10:3-5:
For though we walk in the flesh, we do not war according to the flesh. For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ,
This is a great verse that gives us a good idea of how we are to go about pulling down strongholds in our minds. First, since the sword of the Spirit is the offensive piece of our weaponry, it is a great tool for pulling down strongholds.
Satan said to Jesus, "If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread." (Matthew 4:3)
But Jesus replied with, "It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God." (Matthew 4:4)
We are told to cast down imaginations. What are imaginations? They are things that we imagine... the devil usually plants them in our minds when he asks us a question that starts out with "What if..." Don't waste your time trying to reason things with the devil. Satan will use all sorts of people to speak curses and speak contrary to God's Word to sow doubt, fear, unbelief and attack your faith in Jesus Christ. If you are reaching out and ministering to such people, be cautious to put on the whole armor of God so you are not taken down to their level. Guard your heart and mind in Christ Jesus. Do not allow spiritual transference to occur.
We are to cast down every thought that comes into our minds that opposes the knowledge of God. What is the knowledge of God? Since God associates Himself with His Word (John 1:1), if anything comes into our minds or other people that come in to our lives that speak and act contrary to God's Word, throw it or them out of your life! Do not waste your time thinking about it or trying to reason with it.
It is also possible to have strongholds in place because demonic spirits have attached themselves to you at some point or another, and need to be driven out. If you work hard at pulling down strongholds by applying the truths in God's Word and this teaching, and yet you seem to hit a wall, it may be because a demonic spirit needs to be driven out.
It is very possible (and not uncommon) to experience quite a bit of freedom through applying the principles in this teaching even if there is a demonic spirit present, but you will only go so far and feel like you're hitting a wall. That is a sign of a demon at work that needs to be driven out. It can be awfully hard to battle when they are working on you from the inside out. Resisting them from the outside is easy, but resisting them when they are on the inside can be extremely hard. If you seem to have reached an immovable mountain, you might want to consider the possibility of needing to have an unclean spirit driven out.
Many Christians today believe that they cannot have demons... nothing could be further from the truth!
God raises up people who are skilled in deliverance ministry. If you are battling with a demon blinding you to the truth of God's Word and/or there is an area of your life that you are struggling with or a sin you do not have victory over, seek out someone who provides deliverance ministry to be used of God to counsel you so you can be set free from the chains that bind you.
Bringing all words and actions (imaginations) into captivity and every thought to the obedience of scripture (Christ) pulls down all spiritual strongholds and sets us free:
2 Corinthians 10:5: Casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ;
Praying God's Word (the King James Bible) is the best way to help decisively overcome specific strongholds: pride, idolatry, addiction, deception, self-righteousness, loss, depression, unbelief, temptation, etc.

The Four faces of Python work closely together.
1. Jezebel which is occult-empowered. - It is anti-prophetic and manifest a great deal in control.
2. Leviathan which is PRIDE. - It bites down and then twists. It twists word, motives, your ability to understand another, others ability to understand you, it twists communication. It is the river dragon. It likes to manifest near water even physically.
3. Absalom which manifests in spiritualised ambition. - It loves to manifest among Believers well camouflaged and all about “me”. It’s selfish ambition, self-promotion, trying to take over, betrayal.
4. Python which manifests in compromise. - Anti-apostolic and hates prayer, especially night and day prayer.
Characteristics Of Python
1) Python is a territorial spirit that gathers and communicates information about the destiny, the activity, the calling, the anointing, the mission and the level of spiritual authority in the life of those in its territory. It guards its territory.
Its goal is to:
a) Broadcast information
b) To mark people for demonic pressure and to squeeze out unwanted and threatening ministry in a city or a region, especially if it’s apostolic level authority that’s coming into the city.
2) Python spirit desires to work through people and give the appearance of
revelation, discernment, prophecy and the ability to tell the future, to be accurate.
Outside of Body of Believers, it manifests in New Age, Channeling, Fortune-Telling, Horoscopes, Divination, Hypnotics, Whisperers, etc.
Inside the Body of Christ, it manifests through prophetic people who refuse to submit to authority and without them knowing it, they begin to receive 2nd Heaven revelation and they begin to prophecy what the devil would like to do. People flip back and forth from authentic revelation and prophecy to rebellious activity, slander and gossip.
3) Python spirit shows up in ancient history, the Old Testament and the New Testament and Greek mythology where it guarded the gates of Delphi. If people wanted information they paid for it. It’s the same today with Psychics, etc.
4) According the Word of God in Isaiah 41:21 --- the spirit of Divination which claims to predict accurately CANNOT do so outside the revelation of God and His authentic prophets. All they can do is pass on information that everyone knows.
a) Python’s goal is to gather information through the demonic worldwide "wicked web”, such as leylines etc.
b) Python collects the information and announces it to stir up opposition that squeezes people out of the move of God.
c) Python does not affirm ministry but raises an alarm, waving a red flag to bring to bear a demonic resistance that would squeeze off the prophetic destiny and kingdom potential and the results as quickly as possible.
d) The fortune-telling aspect of Python spirit is in reality the tracking of a person through demonic spirits and the sharing of that information along with manipulation of ideas, thoughts and events to appear able or to appear gifted to predict the future to create a relationship of dependency, fear, slavery, manipulations and financial dependency.
e) God, through the prophet Isaiah exposes them as frauds and challenges the ability of soothsayers, psychics, palm-readers, those who consult spirits, idols and the dead.
God wants us to know that true revelation belongs to Him alone. True revelation always lines up with the Word of God (King James Bible).
f) Python works through lies and manipulating information. It does not have revelation knowledge. We need to WATCH WHAT WE SAY. Especially what we say about other Believers, because that becomes demonic pronouncements. I Cor 2:6
g) Prophets and prophetic people can hear God and can hear His revelation. God created many people with gifts to receive revelation, but when those people choose not to follow God and tune their heart into God’s heart, that receiver gift still works and those people can tune into other demonic channels where information is passing around and their receiver is still on, they’re just tuned to the wrong channel. They don’t narrow the beam to Christ alone. They get enough real information to look real.
Christians who are rebellious and uncorrectable often get 2nd Heaven revelation.
h) One third of heaven’s angels fell and they can and do collect information about people and it is not revelation but observation. Demons communicate amongst each other and people with receivers can tune in and get information but pass it off as revelation. It is the beginning of the Python squeeze.
5. Python spirit especially resists worship, prayer, prophetic intercession, apostolic anointing and true revelation. It will try and create lethargy, a prayerlessness and an inability to worship.
6. When manifesting through unwitting people in church the prophetic person is a mix – operating in legitimate prophetic and then demonic.
7. Python stirs up and connects itself in church members as well as in the community, city and state with:
c) Gossip, rebellion, ungodly authority and control
d) Slander, lies and manipulation
e) Brutal and being unmerciful towards Godly leaders
f) Constricting, tightening and shutting down. It loves to hang around money and manipulation of authority.
8. Key weapons against a Python Spirit:
a) Praying – especially at night
b) Worship – sing
c) Trusting the justice of God to manifest – having faith in God
d) Declare the citizenship and authority of your covering
Read: Luke 18
Night and day prayer releases the quick justice of God.
9. Python manifests its manipulation and perversion of authority with fear and control of money in an attempt to apply pressure to an Apostolic, prophetic ministry.
Some ministry leaders squeeze the life out of other leaders, helpers, servants and those who hear from and desire to follow God.
10. Python spirit tries to pressure, squeeze and push people out of a life-giving apostolic ministry to stop a move of God in a region or city.
While Python is working, God uses his Spirit to expose how deep, crazy and fearful the Jezebel spirit is. God reveals on the faces of Jezebel, how terrorized the spirits are by anybody getting a little bit of God. They are hysterical and will resort to brutality rather than let someone get more of God.
This spirit does not want you to believe the prophecies about yourself, does not want you to receive anointing, it does not want you to stand up, believe you are who Christ says you are, that you have access to revelation, the prophetic and the Word of God is real. This Python spirit is afraid of anyone who looks just a little bit like they might threaten the territory. It’s not afraid of religion. It is afraid of anointing, apostolic life, intercessory prayer, the prophetic and worship. It’s scared to death that someone may wake up in the night and pray!
Prayers Of Repentance
Repentance of control, manipulation, pressuring people, squeezing people to get your own way, manipulative prophecy, gossip, slander, prophecy while in rebellion to an authority, using spiritual gifts and at the same time refusing to submit to the authority in your life – that’s Python.
"Father, I come to you in the Name of Jesus. I confess the sin of my ancestors, my parents and my own sin of manipulation and control and pressure and of co-operating with the Jezebel spirit and a Python spirit.
Father, forgive me. I choose to forgive and release all my ancestors, any city authorities or any church authorities for the sin, the curses and the consequences in my life. I ask you to forgive me, Lord for this sin of Python, for yielding to it and to the resulting curses, and I receive your forgiveness, On the basis of this forgiveness, Lord, I choose to forgive myself for involvement in this sin of Python, control and pressure. I renounce the sin and the curses of Python. I break this power from my life and the lives of my children through the redemptive work of Christ on the cross. I receive God’s freedom from this sin and the resulting curses and I receive the authority and the citizenship of Jesus Christ over me, over my city. I am a citizen of the Kingdom of God and we declare His rule over this city”. In Jesus Name. AMEN."
Breaking Ungodly beliefs prayer:
“Father, I come to you in the Name of Jesus. Father, I confess my sin of believing the lie that controlling and pressurizing people and manipulating people are normal. It’s not. I forgive those who have contributed to my forming of this ungodly belief. I ask you, Lord to forgive me for receiving this lie for living my life based on it and for any way that I have judged others because of. I receive your forgiveness and you’re cleansing. I renounce and break now my agreement with Python spirits. I cancel my agreement with the kingdom of darkness. I break all agreements that I have made with this demon and I choose to accepts, believe and receive the truth that love is greater, God is greater, freeing people is superior and where the Spirit of Lord, there is liberty". AMEN.
Displacement Of Ungodly Authority prayer:
“We want the authority of heaven in our lives, and our city. In Jesus name, as citizens of Christ’s kingdom, we bind all ungodly authority, ungodly spirits, ungodly power, ungodly principalities connected with Python spirits that make war to bind the apostolic move of God in this city, in this church and the churches of this city. In Jesus name we command Python, unshackle us. We open the jail doors. We remove the shackles through the blood of Jesus and we release the apostolic in this house, in this city, in city government and the churches of this city. As citizens of Christ’s kingdom, we declare we are free from ungodly authority in every dimension. As citizens of the kingdom of heaven, we render ineffective Python and his work to hold back the apostolic in us, this church and the churches of this city and the city government here. As citizens of God’s kingdom of light, we ask the Father to send His holy angels from the throne room to displace all demonic angels who have taken up authority in our lives, our church, this city and the churches in this city and we ask Father God that all demonic elders, all demonic authority be replaced by godly elders, by godly authority in every dimension of our lives, our church and this city. As citizens of Christ’s eternal kingdom, we declare in unity the old era, the anti-apostolic era, the anti-worship era, the anti-prayer era is over in this city, in us. And we call for the rising up of godly apostles in every dimension in ___________.
Nahash/Python Spirit prayer:
This targets/besieges cites belonging to God to try and turn them into a testimony of dryness, shame and confusion. Where your dreams don’t come true. Whatever God has freed you from and forgiven you of, you have redemptive authority there.
Whatever has been in your family from years and years, whatever you have been forgiven of whatever you have renounced and whatever the Lord has given you grace to overcome, you now have authority there. The enemy knows that and hates that about you. It thrives where children of God are passive (this passivity can also be called Ahab) and try to accommodate the serpent’s pressure rather than going to war. Nahash can smell a coward, a shame-based person.
It will compromise with the children of God and co-habit if the people will surrender their prophetic destiny. Its ultimate goal is to bring disgrace on Israel, reversing the redemptive destiny of the city. It is vulnerable to intercession.
How The Believer Can Defeat Nahash/Python:
1. Seasons of prayer – when leadership calls seasons of prayer, Python gets nervous.
2. When the people begin to weep before the Lord because they recognize their inability to save themselves.
3. Ask for and receive a fresh move of the Spirit of God and His power.
4. Allow the Spirit of God to burn in you a fresh, holy passion and a holy burning anger against demonic intimidation, which is the opposite of passivity. It is a sanctified anger at the encroachment of the enemy for my/family destiny.
5. Allow the Holy Spirit to act prophetically through you to give you prophetic proclamation to announce what God says over demonic encroachment on God’s territory and God’s people.
6. Allow yourself to be an instrument of prophetic, apostolic intercession to proclaim God’s authority over a situation and allow the terror of the Lord to fall on people and produce a supernatural, united gathering.
A true, prophetic proclamation coming through the lips of a Believer releases a shift in the climate spiritually over a family, a city and a nation. If the enemy has been saying something over my family line and my destiny, look before me and see nasty things happened in the generations, then make prophetic proclamation on the other end. Fast and pray and ask Holy Spirit to fill you. Pick out scriptures that go against everything negative the enemy has been saying and you say what the Lord says......and watch what happens. There will be a shift over that situation.
Allow the Lord to release through you a promise, a prophecy, confidence and a divine strategy. Allow the Lord to release through your lips a promise, a prophecy, confidence and a divine strategy. Prophetic intercession leads to prophetic declaration of apostolic levels.
Allow the Lord God to use you as an instrument of faith and boldness in the face of shame.
The enemy is vulnerable to faith.
Allow the Lord God to put the enemy to flight by your expressed and activated faith. No mercy for the enemy. Don’t get half-delivered and then back off.
Re-affirm the kingship of the One True God over your life. Cut off whatever the Lord says, even if it’s painful or precious.
What God Wants To Settle Forever
Anywhere the enemy wants to establish himself, is a testimony for deliverance. If the enemy marked you for shame, know God has marked you for deliverance.
God wants us to know that we don’t have to make treaties with the Nahash/Python spirit.
God’s clear message is: anytime you need deliverance, send word, you have a king who can and will deliver you.
“Father, I come to You in the Name of Jesus. Father, I confess the sin of my ancestors, my parents and my own sin of compromise, shame, dryness, surrender of vision, surrender of intercession and I repent for surrendering the city.
Father, I repent for surrendering my city. Oh Lord, hear this prayer. We repent on behalf of all the Believers who have surrendered this city and cursed this city. I choose to forgive and release them form sin, for the curses and the consequences to my life. I ask you to forgive me, Lord for this sin of dealing with Python, for yielding to him and all the resulting curses. In Jesus name, I receive your forgiveness. On the basis of your forgiveness, Lord, I choose to forgive myself for involvement in this sin of compromising with Python and Nahash. I renounce the sin and the curses of compromise, living in shame, spiritual dryness, the surrendering on vision, the surrendering of intercession and the surrendering of cities. I break this power from my life and from the lives of my descendents of my sin through the redemptive work of Christ on His cross and I receive in faith God’s freedom form this sin and from the resulting curse of Python and Nahash. I confess my sin and my ancestor’s sin of believing the lie that I must compromise with satan, surrendering my vision, surrendering intercession and surrendering my city to Python. I forgive those who have contributed to my forming this ungodly belief. It is a lie and I renounce it now. I ask you Lord to forgive me know for receiving this ungodly belief, for living my life based on it and for anyway that I have judged others because I operated in this lie. I receive your forgiveness. On the basis of your forgiveness Lord, I choose to forgive myself foe making a place foe this ungodly belief. I renounce and break my agreement with this ungodly belief. I cancel now and always, my agreement with the kingdom of darkness.
I break all agreements that I have made with this demon or any other demons or any other lie of darkness. I choose to accept and receive the Godly belief that I can live free of compromise with satan. I can live free of shame over my past and my mistakes. I can live free of spiritual dryness. I will see prophetically and carry out the vision that God has given me. I will make war through prophetic intercession for my city, my family and I will see the fruit of this warfare. I will intercede for my city. I will intercede for my city and will see it turned to its redemptive purpose in the kingdom of God”. In Jesus Name. AMEN.
Prayers That Displace Ungodly Authority
“We want the authority of heaven in our lives, in our church and our city. Father, I come to You in the Name of Jesus, as citizens of Christ’s kingdom, we bind now in Jesus name all ungodly authority, spirits, powers, principalities connected with Python spirits and Nasash spirits that make war to bind the apostolic move of God in this church, this city and the churches of this city. We loose the apostolic in Jesus name. We command Python and Nahash, release our city now in Jesus name. We release the apostolic in this house, in our lives and this city. As citizens of Christ’s kingdom, we declare this city is apostolic friendly. And we are free form ungodly authority. In every dimension and in every time. As citizens of the kingdom of heaven, we render ineffective spirits of Python and Nahash and their work to hold back the apostolic in us, in this church and the churches of this city. As citizens of God’s kingdom of light, we ask the Father of heaven to send holy angels from the throne room with royal dispatch to displace all demonic angels who have taken up authority in our lives, our church, this city and the churches in this city. We ask the Father of Lights that all demonic elders, all demonic authorities be replaced now by Godly elders, Godly authorities in every dimension of our lives, and our city.
As citizens of Christ’s eternal kingdom we declare in unity the old era, the anti-apostolic era is over in this city, in us and we call now for the rising up of God’s apostolic order in ____________. Deal with the shame. In Jesus Name. AMEN.”
