A very good friend of mine in Los Angeles sent me an email this morning – her name is Pia Hugo and she gave me permission to repost what she wrote to me here on the blog. I believe it will benefit others who read it. I was blessed to minister with her to over 400 public high school students this past Spring in the Los Angeles area and she refers to some of that in her post, but basically, her response is to a number of vicious attacks we have been experiencing financially, health wise and relationship wise – it seems that the enemy is very mad and upset over the release of my new book this week called “Downloads from Heaven”, along with our commitment to reaching 1000 people for Jesus this year and our strong commitment to see more and more people healed by the power of God. And coupled with that is Jason’s new worship album released called “Running Free.” So with that in mind and without sharing further details on how the various attacks are manifesting in our lives, let me cut and paste Pia’s email below – I pray it is helpful to others that read it and/or perhaps it is something that you may want to refer to a friend who is experiencing similar trials and difficult situations.
Hello Brother Jay!
Since receiving this email yesterday, I have been in distress over you and I have been praying for you and asking the Lord to reveal to me what is happening. This morning, as I was doing my devotionals, this quote from Rick Joyner’s book, “The Harvest” jumped out at me:
“It is an age-old tactic of the enemy to try to devour what God is bringing forth while it is still in its infancy. We see this in Revelation 12:16, as the dragon waited for the woman to give birth so that he might devour the child. We see this principle with the birth of Moses and Satan’s attempt to destroy the deliverer by destroying the male infants of Israel. This was a prophetic parallel of his strategy to destroy the infant Jesus in the same way. We also see this in his attempt to destroy any coming last-day ministry…”
