The Time My Mother Died


The Time My Mother Died
Margaret (Peggy) Kannaday

The title of this article sounds very sad; however; it is a testimony of God’s triumph over death. “O death, where [is] thy sting? O grave, where [is] thy victory?” 1 Cor. 15:55).
My whole life, I had been dreading the demise of my beloved mother. I had always wondered how I would get through it victoriously.
I had been working overseas in an Interdenominational Ministry for many years, and so I began to pray for God’s timing for me to go home to the states.
I prayed for seven years, and then the right time was revealed to me, and I was able to go home in 2003.
Soon after arriving in the states; I got a call that my mother was in grave condition. I immediately went to the facility where she was located and found her emaciated and under strong medication. I was unable to actually talk to her due to her condition.
My mother was 89 years old, and so she had lived a long life, but I had never seen her so helpless looking.
I remembered how when she was much younger; she had rheumatoid arthritis, and she would not take the medication because of the severe side effects. She could not walk for one year, and my daughter and I decided to take her to an evening meeting where an evangelist was having a healing service.
We had to carry my mother into the church, and help her to the front. When she was waiting to be prayed for; she saw a blind person there, and she thought how much worse that person’s condition was than her own.
She prayed for the blind person, as she had a compassion for that person. My mother was completely healed that night, and I remembered the Scripture, “Confess [your] faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much” (James 5:26).
My mother became a new person, and she did one hour’s worth of exercises daily. It was like God gave her a new beginning at that time in her life.
It was very heart wrenching to see my mother in the condition that I found her in 2003, as she had been so youthful and physically active previously.
My prayer partner, Ali, and I prayed for mother, we quoted Scriptures, and we rubbed my mother’s painfully thin arms. My mother had a hopeless look of pain on her face.
Then at 5 a.m. the next morning; I was told that my mother had died. I went to the facility, and to my amazement; I found my mother smiling, and her face glowing.
My mother had passed into another realm with a smile on her face. What a beautiful sight.
I realized that I was so fortunate to have been right there to be with my mother and to experience her glowing face and to see her peaceful smile. If I had not come to the states at the precise timing of the Lord; I would have missed that awesome experience.
I praise God for His wonderful goodness and mercy, which is from everlasting to everlasting.
I had always thought that the funeral of one of parents would be devastating to me, and I couldn’t bring myself to even think about my parents’ funerals. What a difference knowing the Lord Jesus Christ makes, as He was present with me in an extraordinary way. I was completely enveloped in The Father’s love and the Presence of The Lord Jesus Christ. I was overflowing with the love, joy and peace of The Lord.
I never would have believed that I could experience such joy at the funeral of either one of my parents, but I was filled with the joy of The Lord!
We cannot even imagine what the Lord has prepared for each one of His beloved people.
Joh 14:3, “And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again, and receive you unto Myself; that where I am, there ye may be also.”
Hallelujah!

Pastors, Stop Tolerating The Jezebel Spirit!


The Lord Jesus Christ sent messages to the churches. The Lord warned the Church of Thyatira “not” to tolerate the spirit of Jezebel in their churches.
Pastors are forewarned. Why? Because if a pastor is not under the headship of Jesus Christ; he could be seduced into allowing this spirit to function and use their churches as their playground.

Revelation 2:18, “And unto the angel of the church in Thyatira write; These things saith the Son of God, who hath His eyes like unto a flame of fire, and His feet are like fine brass;”

Jesus commends the church of Thyatira for the good works, charity, service, faith and patience that they had demonstrated. These good deeds did not cancel out the offensive tolerance of the Jezebel spirit.

19 “I know thy works, and charity, and service, and faith, and thy patience, and thy works; and the last to be more than the first.”

Jesus then rebukes this church very severely for her indulgence in allowing the seducing, deceiving and whorish spirit of Jezebel to pull the Christians into immorality, rebellion and idolatry.

20 “Notwithstanding I have a few things against thee, because thou sufferest that woman Jezebel, which calleth herself a prophetess, to teach and to seduce my servants to commit fornication, and to eat things sacrificed unto idols.”

You see, the person who carries the Jezebel spirit does not do the works of Satan herself or himself, but they use their followers to do their dirty work in their area of influence. The original Jezebel used her “prophets”, and her followers to have Naboth murdered and to confiscate his property.

Those with the Jezebel spirit today, use their coven, cult, secret society, followers and hirelings to do their bidding. Jezebel herself controls others through witchcraft, sorcery and all types of spells, incantations and rituals. She does not expose her true character to others; she only uses anyone who will come under her control.

Wherever she lives; she brings corruption, deceit, deception, mind control, confusion, and her greatest delight is in leading innocent people to the slaughter.
She may appear to the public as an upstanding citizen due to her ability (spells, etc.) to acquire the money and pretige of men who have some authority.

Jezebel poses as a Prophetess, and she also pretends to be a very loving, caring person due to the authority she has worked so hard to attain through her Ahabs and followers. She sends out her seducing spirits that attack the minds and hearts of her victims, and many have been led into perdition by the Jezebel spirit which is a world power.

Jesus even gives witches such as Jezebel time to repent. However, she did not repent. Her pride, stubbornness, self-centered lusts, and her desire to deceive innocent people and lead them to the slaughter were too great.

21 “And I gave her space to repent of her fornication; and she repented not.”

The Lord Jesus Christ clearly tells the church exactly what will happen to her and those who are lured into her web of deceit. She uses witchcraft, sorcery, lies, and men in authority in the church to accomplish her insidious and hellish purposes.

22 “Behold, I will cast her into a bed, and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds.”

The Lord Jesus Christ will destroy Jezebel’s children and the churches that allow her to deceive His beloved children will be judged and justice will be served.

Beware of all the self-appointed prophets, prophetesses, apostles, pastors, teachers, evangelists, and elders. I have found that some of these self-appointed “Ministers” are actually sons and daughters of hell, and they will go across the ocean to make even one convert to themselves.

23 “And I will kill her children with death; and all the churches shall know that I am He which searcheth the reins and hearts: and I will give unto every one of you according to your works.”

The Lord Jesus Christ is going to purge, purify and cleanse His church before He returns. Why? Because He is not coming back for a harlot, but for a pure and holy bride.

The Lord is about to vomit out of His mouth all of the hypocrites in the churches in America. The hypocrites are the lukewarm, the wolves in sheep’s clothing, the occupants of the dens of thieves which some churches have become. The Lord is going to spew out of His mouth the churches that have taken a loathsome witch and made her their prophetess.

I know of a church in my area that is little more than a coven, but they continue to deceive countless Christians into believing they are a cutting edge ministry. They lie about their numbers, they lie about their power and they are leading many to the slaughter through deception involved with witchcraft and sorcery.

If you are going to a church that allows the Jezebel spirit free reign, and allows sexual predators to have free access to the children in their schools and to hold leadership positions, where fornication, adultery, doctrines of demons, and every evil work of darkness runs rampant; get out before it is too late.

When you submit to those Satanic spirits; they will permeate your very life, and lead you into total destruction unless you wake up and repent.

Pastors and ministers must be above reproach. Why? Because if they have any area of weakness; the Jezebel spirit will come to them and twist them around her finger.

How? She uses many methods, and she is a real wheeler and dealer. She loves to pretend to bring great financial benefits to the targeted church, to support the church, to advertise for the church, and to appear to be a wonderful Christian leader who loves the pastor and the people. That is how she uses the weaknesses of the pastors who are not dead to the love of money, lusts of every type and who can be deceived through flattery, lies and the spirit of manipulation.

She gains her prestige, money and power by latching on to a man who is unscrupulous, but is also wealthy and has some power. She uses his power, money and any prestige that he has for her own selfish ambitions and to deceive.

If a leader does not have a high level of character, discernment, and morality; he could be led down a garden path that will end in disaster. Jezebel is there to lie, manipulate, kill, steal and destroy, just as her master. She is a servant of Satan, but she comes as an angel of light.

Do not be deceived. Pray that the Lord Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit of the Lord will raise up a mighty standard against her and all of her works.

Please pray that her witchcraft, sorcery and rituals will be rendered powerless by the Blood of The Lamb, Jesus Christ. Pray that she will be exposed for who she is in your area, so that the young and uninitiated will be under the Lord’s protection.

Pray for your family members, church members and everyone in your area; as she attacks all true Christians, their families, and their friends. She cannot stand true Christians, and she despises any person she cannot manipulate. She hates any person that tries to live a godly life in Christ Jesus, and she will persecute and even try to kill that person as the Biblical Jezebel tried to kill Elijah.

Please plead the blood of The Lord Jesus over your churches, your homes, your area, and all of the people so that they will not be under the horrible deception, confusion and mind control of the Jezebel spirit.

Dear Father,
I pray that the men and women of God in the churches will no longer allow the Jezebel spirit to function in their churches. I pray that all of the anti-Christ infiltrators, coven, cult and secret society members will be discerned, and they will not be allowed to have positions of authority in the churches. Please protect the children from the sexual preditors that are in the worldly, carnal churches.
I pray that the people in your area will be covered with a fiery hedge and that all of the truth will be exposed about everything that is being done covertly, and everything that is being whitewashed will be revealed.
Thank You Father, Thank You Lord Jesus for raising up a mighty standard against the evil in our area, and come Holy Spirit to move upon the hearts and minds of the people. Save Thy people Oh, Lord God!
In The Name which is above every name in heaven and earth, Jesus Christ’s and all for His glory. Amen and amen.
