Edited Excerpt -
KATIE: The spirit of death is active in the
world…putting death on people's bodies, causing rapid aging, disease,
disorder…killing off finances, marriages & relationships…If the spirit of
death is in the room at the time of our death, it usually means that we're
dying of a disease or something that was not the will of God.
battled the spirit of death.
KATIE: He came into my room. I was sick
at the time. I actually heard his audible voice. Said my name out loud. I
said, "Who is that, Lord?" He said, "It's the
spirit of death on assignment to kill you." Almost immediately,
I went into menopause. My body started reacting, having severe hot
flashes, severe ones. I started gaining weight, 8 pounds of belly fat
within a week. My hair started getting dry & brittle. I saw rapid aging
happening to my skin, getting baggy, saggy & wrinkly. Every part of my
life. I started having chronic pain in my body. The spirit of death didn't
just stop in my body. He went after the rest of my life. He went after my
marriage. 15 years, my husband & I had the biggest battle of our marriage.
Then he went after my ministry, took out 4 of my top employees & cut off
our financial support. Went after personal friends of mine. I had 4 people
in my life, very close to me, who were killed by the spirit of death.
Then he even took the lives of my dogs: 2 died within a couple of weeks of
SID: What gave the spirit of death the legal right to come
after you & your possessions?
KATIE: That was my exact question. Holy
Spirit began to answer. 1st, it's our law-breaking. The Bible says that
when we break the laws of God, it gives death the right to attack even
our bodily organs. Romans 7:5 Amplified Classic says
when our law-breaking or sin comes, it causes death to be able to
constantly operate in our bodily organs, so that we bear fruit for
death. We have 78 organs in our body. Doctors say that our skin is
actually…the biggest organ in our body. We wonder why are we having
wrinkles, sagging, bagging & all of this stuff? We are having rapid aging
because we break the law (s cited in the Bible)…
The law is not bad.
Romans talks about how the law is holy…righteous, good, perfect.
KATIE: It's not the law that's at fault. The Bible also says our flesh is
too weak to keep the whole law. James 2:10 says it's
impossible…to…perfectly keep the law. When we offend in 1 area, we break
it all…the law. That is what's given the spirit of death to have the
(legal) right to attack our: bodily organs, skin, muscles, strength, the
rest of our lives, (in) any area of our life.
SID: What can we do to
KATIE: The Bible says that Jesus redeemed us from the curse
of the law by becoming a curse for us…that through His death took away
the power from the devil who had the power of death…We can't do it by
wishing it away…We have to rely on Jesus, the One that has destroyed death
for us. The Bible also says that He fulfilled the righteous requirements
of the law on our behalf…something we could never do on our own ability.
So we have to have a deep, intimate relationship with Jesus, not just go
to church…I'm talking about abiding, tarrying, waiting for Him, building a
deeper relationship every single day, where we are relying on Him…Jesus
said in John 15, "I am the vine. You are the
branches. Whoever abides in Me will produce much fruit. He who doesn't
will be like a branch that gets cut off, withers & dries up"...
When we abide, continue in, tarry, wait on Jesus, we will produce much
fruit in every area, including youth restored. Jesus said about Himself, "I
am the resurrection, the life, & bread of life. I came to give you life
abundant." When we're connected to The Vine, we will produce
the fruit of life & revive restored youth. When we don't, we become like
the branch that's literally cut off, withers & dies.
SID: How did you
defeat all these (physical) enemies that were drawn in by the spirit of
KATIE: 1st thing I did was repent, because when we break the
law of God, we need to have repentance.
1 John 1:9 says that God is
faithful to forgive us of our sins, when we repent & confess our sins.
As soon as we repent, those charges (legal grounds) against us
breaking the law get dismissed. Then the spirit of death has to leave
& stop producing fruit in our bodily organs, including (to stop/reverse)
rapid aging & disease & disorder.
SID: You repented. What else?
KATIE: We have to repent, but we also have to
put ourselves under grace, not 1 or the other. It's
both, because the Bible says when our sins of law-breaking
increase & abound, that grace surpasses…& super abounds our law-breaking.
KATIE: Grace is like an umbrella…like we're building a divine canopy
of protection against the enemy. KATIE: You have to do grace & repentance.
Matthew 5:4 talks about when we mourn over our sins, we will receive & be
refreshed by God's grace. Repentance of our sins dismisses our
law-breaking & releases grace, causing this Holy Spirit bubble to come
around us, so that the enemy cannot penetrate…cannot continue to keep on
accusing us of our law-breaking, in order to put the spirit of death to
work in our bodies.
KATIE: As I kept on with just getting in the
presence of Jesus, just worshiping Him, His authority over death began to
be released. Any time I messed up, I went right away to repent, so that my
lawlessness would be dismissed. As I did that & kept on decreeing grace
scriptures. It's like I built a thicker & thicker bubble of divine
protection around me. Then 1 by 1, step by step, death started to withdraw
his: actions & operation in my body, on my: ministry, marriage, every part
of my life. Pretty soon, everything was being systematically restored. I
was starting to get younger, feel better. Our marriage & finances got
KATIE: I saw my facialist for the 1st time in years. I don't
get professional things done to me anymore, because I'm relying on the
supernatural. I thought, “Maybe I'll get a little facial before I go to
Sid's.” She goes, "I can't believe it. You look so much younger than
you did even 10 years ago when I first met you." I said, "It's the Lord.
It's the Lord."
SID: You found scriptures to support what you're
KATIE: There's a story in Job 33. Job's so sick…in
continual pain on his bed. His bones are sticking out. His flesh is
clinging to his body. Job 33 says that he was under the assault of the
inflictors of death, the destroyers. It was the spirit of death that
was doing that to him. Next verses, says, "Then God is gracious to him."
Gracious is the power of grace. "He said, 'Deliver this man from the
pit. I have given him an atonement, a price of redemption & a sacrifice.'"
That's Jesus. "'Because of that, then his flesh shall become fresher
than a child's & he shall return to the days of his youth.'"
someone may be chastened on a bed of pain, with constant
distress in their bones,
that their body finds food repulsive & their soul loathes the choicest

now stick out.
draw near to the pit, & their life to the messengers of death. c
if there is an angel at their side, a messenger, 1 out of 1,000, sent to
tell them how to be upright,
he is gracious to that person & says to God,
‘Spare them from going down to the pit; I have
found a ransom for them—
their flesh be renewed like a child’s; let them be restored as in the days
of their youth’—
that person can pray to God & find favor with him,
they will see God’s
face and shout for joy; He will restore them to full well-being.

‘I have sinned, I have perverted what is right, but
I did not get what I deserved.

& I shall live to enjoy the light of life.’
SID: Moses & Caleb were elderly men, but their strength wasn't abated.
Even their eyesight didn't even fade. They somehow knew this secret.
