With news of Alynn's death now known by countless numbers worldwide, concerned Christians have written to ask why I did not bring an exorcist to Alynn, ending her victimization by demons.
I have added to my article at www.truthtellers.org describing our experience in which I express my belief that this attack was demonic opposition because of our resistance to Jewish supremacism. Countless times we asked God for deliverance for Alynn, well aware that if I stopped speaking out against Zionism the demons would undoubtedly stop afflicting her. However, the Holy Spirit made it clear that God wanted us to continue this fight.
Here is the section I added:
Many times, like the apostle Paul, who asked the Lord to take away his thorn in the flesh, we beseeched God that this oppression be removed. Why didn’t we call in an exorcist? Because we knew we were in spiritual warfare, being attacked in retaliation for what we have been doing (largely successfully) to hold back great forces of evil (Ephesians 6:12). As David said, “If war arise against me, in this will I be confident” (Psalm 27:3). The Holy Spirit gave us no liberty to seek relief from man in a battle we knew God wanted us to fight.
Like the apostle Peter, who told Jesus He didn’t have to suffer and die, many Christians today believe God wants every believer healthy and happy – and certainly quickly delivered if attacked by Satan.
Yet, as God authorized bizarre fasts, weakness, and oppressions upon His very greatest biblical saints (such as Job, Daniel and Ezekiel), He still has the right to require the heaviest price (even death) be paid by His spiritual warriors as the necessary trade-off in holding back the darkness. No one can say He can’t and that He must conform to our "logical" expectations.
What must always be kept in mind is that God was in Alynn and Alynn in God every moment of this ordeal – a unity empowered by her unwavering trust and obedience. The demons, having been let into her body, but not her soul, had no power that was not given them by heaven. Thus, just as Christ was carried aloft in the arms of Satan during His temptation (Luke 4:1-13), so God allowed Alynn to be carried along by the tempter to fulfill God's higher purposes.
In this Bible study, I discuss from Scripture our true basis of protection from evil.
