Prophecy: We Must Squeeze the Life Out of This Python Spirit

by | Jun 11, 2020 | Blogs, Prophetic Insight

Our flesh can walk in disobedience to the Lord, but over time, it can build a stronghold in our lives. The devil comes to steal, kill and destroy (John 10:10).

Have you ever wondered why you can’t press through to your breakthrough or get your spiritual walk back to where you want it? Our lack of spiritual desire can be more than our flesh or laziness. It can be a principality and power in operation!

I was recently in the presence of the Lord when He revealed to me there is a strongman python spirit operating over the earth.

A python spirit in the spiritual realm would be referred to what a python snake would be in the natural. A python kills its prey by constriction and asphyxiation. Constriction is a narrowing or tightening. Asphyxiation is being deprived of oxygen, which can result in unconsciousness or death. A python spirit or snake squeezes its prey.

The Spirit of the Lord revealed and brought my attention to COVID-19 and the recent racial tragedy where an African American man died because his airway was being constricted and he mustered out, “I can’t breathe.” When we look at both of these circumstances that have impacted our world, they were both related to respiratory or breathing issues.

The python spirit constricts and tightens around your trachea, making it difficult to breathe. When you are in a territory dominated by witchcraft, you may even feel your trachea tighten. When we look at both COVID-19 and the recent racial injustice, we see the airway being attacked. This is a python spirit in operation.

Python spirits generally want to make you prayerless and come to attack your spirit walk. The Lord was showing me that this spirit wants to come against revival.

A python spirit attacks a Christian’s spiritual walk and the Christian thinks they are in a dry place or “the wilderness.” The truth is a Christian can’t see and doesn’t acknowledge that the majority of the cause of their stagnancy and lack of desire for spiritual growth and breakthrough is because there is a principality in operation against them.

This same principality is in operation over the world and against revival. It may be releasing a spirit of death through COVID-19. Spirits of trauma, stagnancy, distraction, depression and fear are being released as a result of COVID-19. These are direct attacks against revival. Yes, we need to pray for individual situations, but truly we need to attack the power trying to come against revival.

Racial tensions can additionally come against revival as we get in disunity, judgment and criticism of others. We must not merely look at what is happening on the surface, but at the larger picture. Attacking the principalities in operation that are causing all of this is where our prayers should be targeted.

Acknowledging demonic powers and operations instead of people causing these destructions will be the true way we win the war. Over the last several weeks, the Lord has released multiple words to me about what is happening in the spiritual realm. The common word He continues to release is the principalities and rulers over the earth. When we target them, expose them, and decree and declare against them is when we will have victory.

The python spirit will continue to attack until we annihilate it through prayer. Its operations and tactics may change to a different demonic deploy.

You may or may not recognize its next move. Our job as Christians is to squeeze the life out of the python spirit through prayer before it squeezes the life out of us physically, emotionally and spiritually. {eoa}
