Shalom and welcome to this edition of Through the Lens. I’m Rabbi Eric Walker.
Everyone has experience going to the doctor. The process is pretty much the same every time we go to the doctor’s office. You go into a room and they take your vitals – weight, blood pressure and temperature and then they ask you why you are there. We faithfully answer their questions and describe our symptoms. The doctor comes in and he looks at the chart and asks you some more questions, listens to your heart, your lungs, and may order some diagnostic tests. At this point he has some decisions to make based on the information available. Will he treat the symptoms and wait for the final diagnosis or will he withhold treatment until he knows what you have? The bottom line is that unless the doctor knows what you have he cannot prescribe the most effective treatment. That means that everything must have a name in order to be treated. Without a clear diagnosis or name, the treatment is hit or miss and may be used to rule out certain things, but the only way to know for sure is to test until a definitive decision is made and a name attached.
In today’s environment of highly contagious ailments being transmitted from one person to the next we know that germs are spread through contact.
In the 1998 Movie Fallen with Denzel Washington we see a very impactful spiritual story unfold. Denzel is a detective that attends the execution of a murderer. In his last visit the murderer grabs Denzel’s hand and begins to speak in some strange language. Denzel does not think anything of this until weeks later when he begins to encounter people who are singing the same eerie tune that the executed murderer sang. While this is going on you see people bumping into each other or reaching out and touching someone and watch as their behavior completely changes. The story unfolds even further that these people where apparently being used by the fallen angel named Azazel and that his spirit was transferred from one host to the next through physical contact. That is through the flesh.
In the Hebrew Azazel was the rugged mountain cliff area that the Talmud tells us the scapegoat was thrown over during the Day of Atonement. One of the sages of old Nahmanides attributed the Name Azazel to a group of fallen angels that were goat-like demons. In the non-canonized Book of Enoch this is further discussed.
In the Hebrew text of the Old Covenant neither Satan nor the fallen angels were enemies of G-D. They were simply accusers of man. In fact, in Judaism, G-D has no enemies.
I find it quite interesting that the enmity between the Seed of the Serpent and the Seed of the Woman did not manifest itself in the Word as demonic spiritual warfare through people until the incarnate Yeshua walked the earth. It was not until His miraculous birth that Hasatan’s plans were exposed and we were given authority over his minions through the name of Yeshua.
G-D uses things of the natural to show us that which exists in the supernatural. In the natural we cannot treat an illness or condition that does not have a name and many of the illnesses we suffer with today have to do with the flesh whether it is through the transference of germs or through what we take into our bodies.
So it is with spiritual maladies. In some cases we can name the spirit and in other cases we know that something is at work, but we do not know the name. Like any other condition in our lives we sometimes grow comfortable even in our affliction and resign ourselves to living with whatever it is that has been affecting us. We become a gracious host and in many cases, so welcoming that we open the door to other afflictions. It doesn’t get any better on its own and we must treat not only the symptoms but the source of our affliction and stand against it and all its friends.
Ps 3:1 O Lord, how many are my foes! How many rise up against me! 2 Many are saying of me, “God will not deliver him.” 3 But you are a shield around me, O Lord; you bestow glory on me and lift up my head. 4 To the Lord I cry aloud, and he answers me from his holy hill. 5 I lie down and sleep; I wake again, because the Lord sustains me. 6 I will not fear the tens of thousands drawn up against me on every side. 7 Arise, O Lord! Deliver me, O my God! Strike all my enemies on the jaw; break the teeth of the wicked. 8 From the Lord comes deliverance. May your blessing be on your people.
Ps 32:6 Therefore let everyone who is godly pray to you while you may be found; surely when the mighty waters rise, they will not reach him. 7 You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble and surround me with songs of deliverance.
Joel 2:32 And everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved; for on Mount Zion and in Jerusalem there will be deliverance, as the Lord has said, among the survivors whom the Lord calls.
Obadiah 15 “The day of the Lord is near for all nations. As you have done, it will be done to you; your deeds will return upon your own head. 16 Just as you drank on my holy hill, so all the nations will drink continually; they will drink and drink and be as if they had never been. 17 But on Mount Zion will be deliverance;
Phil 1:18 Yes, and I will continue to rejoice, for I know that through your prayers and the help given by the Spirit of Messiah Yeshua, what has happened to me will turn out for my deliverance.
1 Peter 2:4 As you come to him, the living Stone — rejected by men but chosen by God and precious to him— 5 you also, like living stones, are being built into a spiritual house to be a holy priesthood, offering spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Messiah Yeshua.
Like any house must be cleaned so too our spiritual house must be clean so that we do not become breeding grounds and hosts for spiritual squatters – for everything that is not occupied by the holy Spirit is available to hasatan and those at his command.
Luke 11:24 “When an evil spirit comes out of a man, it goes through arid places seeking rest and does not find it. Then it says, ‘I will return to the house I left.’ 25 When it arrives, it finds the house swept clean and put in order. 26 Then it goes and takes seven other spirits more wicked than itself, and they go in and live there. And the final condition of that man is worse than the first.”
The only protection we have is to follow this instruction: Eph 6:10-17 Finally, be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. 11 Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. 13 Therefore put on the full armor of God, so that when the day of evil comes, you may be able to stand your ground, and after you have done everything, to stand. 14 Stand firm then, with the belt of truth buckled around your waist, with the breastplate of righteousness in place, 15 and with your feet fitted with the readiness that comes from the gospel of peace. 16 In addition to all this, take up the shield of faith, with which you can extinguish all the flaming arrows of the evil one. 17 Take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God. 18 And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests.
This is a clarion call for us to stand together as ONE BODY in ONE ACCORD and IN ONE SPIRIT and gird each other up with prayers of deliverance that all may be released from anything in their lives that is not of the Lord.
Mark 4:23 “If anyone has ears to hear, let him hear.”

Lord, in the Name of Yeshua I come boldly to your throne of grace and present our audience before you. I stand in the gap and intercede on behalf of every person watching knowing that the Holy Spirit within me takes hold together with me against the evils that would attempt to hold anyone wacthing in bondage. I unwrap everyone associated with our family of faith from the bonds of wickedness with my prayers and take my shield of faith and quench every fiery dart of the adversary. Father, you say that whatever I bind on earth is bound in heaven and whatever I loose on earth is loosed in heaven.
You say for me to cast out demons in the name of Yeshua.
In the name of Yeshua I bind this audience – body, soul and spirit to Your will and purpose for our lives. I bind us to the truth and to the Blood of Messiah.
I bind every old wrong, ungodly pattern of thinking, attitude, idea, desire, belief, motivation, habit and behavior. I tear down, crush, smash, and destroy every stronghold associated with these things. I bind anything that has been justifying and protecting hard feelings against anyone. I bind the stronghold of unforgiveness, fear and distrust. I bind them all and loose peace, healing and deliverance over all these things in the name of Yeshua. Father, I ask you to commission your ministering sprits to go forth and provide for our help and assistance. Father I have laid hold of all of our salvation and confession of the Lordship of Yeshua. I speak of things that are not as though they were for we we choose to look at the unseen, the eternal things of you. I say that hasatan will not get an advantage over us. We resist hasatan and he has run in terror from us. We give him no place in us. We plead the blod of the lamb over us for hasatan and his cohorts are overcome by that blood and Your word. I thank you Lord that we are delivered from the present evil and are delivered from the power of darkness.
Father, I ask you now to fill those vacant places with your redemptive power, your word, your holy spirit, your wisdom, your righteousness, your revelation and your love. I thank you that every enslaving yoke has been broken this day and forevermore. In Yeshua/Jesus’ Name AMEN & AMEN!
