What to Tell the Demon in Your Child’s Closet

by | Jan 19, 2022 | Spiritual Warfare

Children do not receive a junior Holy Spirit! In fact, the full arsenal of the weapons of our warfare are available to kids of all ages!

For some reason, Christians seem shocked when little children come under extreme spiritual assaults—experiencing nightmares or torment. We shouldn’t be surprised that evil spirits are not selective with their destructive devices.

What we have to understand is that Satan hates children today, maybe more than any he has in any other generation.

When Moses was a baby, the devil wiped out an entire generation of kids in a ruthless attempt to destroy him. When Jesus was a baby, the devil did it again. And now, the greatest holocaust in human history is taking place in the womb of women as thousands of helpless children are aborted every single day.

King Solomon wrote, “Behold, children are a gift of the Lord, the fruit of the womb is a reward. Like arrows in the hand of a warrior, so are the children of one’s youth,” (Ps. 127:3–4).

If the kids in your life are fighting tremendous spiritual battles, be encouraged today! Children were born to be arrows in the hands of warriors. They pierce deep into the darkness as they impact the heart of our enemy!

My Granddaughter Mesha’s Angels

Over 18 years ago, I received a deep revelation of the enemy’s destructive purposes toward children.

My oldest granddaughter, Mesha, has seen angels since the time she could talk. She used to call them “birds.” She had been describing these “birds” in her limited vocabulary for months. Because she was only two years old, we thought she was just pretending.

Then one morning, Mesha was taking a bath with her mother. The presence of God filled the bathroom like a cloud. Mesha stood up in the tub and shouted, “The birds are here . . . the birds are here!” Oftentimes we would catch her in the bedroom interacting with the angels, just as a person would play with their friends. As she grew older, her angelic experiences became more exciting and intense.

When Mesha was about four years old, she began to wake up in the middle of the night screaming, “The angels are scaring me!” This went on several times a night for weeks on end. My daughter and son-in-law, who are pastors, would run to her room and try unsuccessfully to console her. It was not long before they were calling me at two and three o’clock in the morning desperate for help. One night, when we had already been praying with her, I told them to ask her what color the angels were.

“Dad, she says they’re black!”

“Oh,” I mused, “I bet they’re demons. Tell Mesha to command the demons to go outside.”

A few seconds later, I heard a tiny voice shout, “Go outside! Go outside now!”

The demons left, only to return the next night. At three o’clock, Jaime and Marty woke to Mesha shouting, “Go outside, you bad angels! Leave now!”

They rushed to her room, only to see little Mesha standing in the dark on her bed, pointing outside in a stern voice and commanding the demons to go outside. When they turned the light on, Mesha excitedly said, “I made the bad angels go outside.”

It’s hard to imagine but I am convinced that demons are more afraid of children than they are of adults. There is something about childlike faith and innocence that God protects in an extraordinary way!

It’s high time we start recognizing children as saints, fully equipped for warfare by the same Holy Spirit that lives in me and you.

As parents and grandparents, let’s believe in the children in our lives and help them to understand their giftings, along with the power they carry! Partnering with their child-like faith will make any devil shake in their boots and leave the room at the sound of our children’s voices, “Go outside! Go outside now!”
