When Satan accuses us of our past, remind him of his future (in hell).

Why are some people giants and others midgets?
Because of problems, some men are forced to grow tremendously,
whereas other men think their problems are overwhelming giants.

Wigglesworth, Smith - CAN YOU BLESS A PIG? - www.mklangl.com/wigglesworthrbio.html  Cached  
Lester Sumrall from South Bend, Indiana, once shared a humorous incident that occurred during his travels with Smith.
A dinner had been prepared for them while they were together in Wales. And just as it so happened, the main entree was roasted pig.  Smith was asked to bless the food, so with a loud voice he said, "Lord if You can bless what You have cursed, then bless this pig.  Smith's humor along with his boldness made a great impression on Sumrall.  Dr. Sumrall often laughed when he shared that story with me.

Laughter

Savelle, Jerry - Jerry Savelle Ministries International - Changing Your Outlook - "When you see Christians laughing who haven't laughed in a long time, it's a sign that God is turning their captivity...
If God tells you something, then you should say thank you in advance because He keeps His word. He's not a man that He should lie. He invented integrity. His word is His bond. He confirms His word with signs following. So I don't have to see it first.  There are a lot of people in the body of Christ who need restoration. Yet, people are waiting until they see restoration. 'I'll get excited and I'll praise God and I'll give more when the restoration comes.' God says, 'No, you get excited and praise Me, and I will restore the years.'"
Savelle, Jerry - Jerry Savelle Ministries International - Time's Up, Devil - God's Taking Over! -
"Write in the margin of your Bible, 'He will bust Satan's head'...The Anointing will destroy, not break, but destroy every yoke from off your neck and leave no evidence that there was ever a yoke there...
What is God saying to the adversary? 'Time's up.' Once again, in Isaiah 61:1-3, we read what the Anointing will do when it comes on the scene: The Spirit of the Lord God is upon Me because He has anointed Me to preach good tidings unto the meek. He has sent Me to bind up the broken hearted. To proclaim liberty to the captives and to the opening of the prison to them that are bound. To proclaim the acceptable year of the Lord and the day of vengeance of our God. To comfort all that mourn; To appoint unto them that mourn in Zion, to give unto them beauty for ashes, the oil of joy for mourning, the garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness; that they might be called trees of righteousness."
God is saying (meaning), 'I'm going to turn your mourning into dancing, turn your sorrow into joy, and take that old garment of heaviness off of you and put on the garment of prais.'"
What is God announcing (meaning)? 'Satan, your time's up, I'm taking over!! You have had them bound up long enough.'"

Walters, Kathy - 8/8/2011 Alaska - Flying High - http://www.injesus.com/message-archives/prophetic/kathiewaltersministy/alaska-flying-high @ archives http://www.injesus.com/message-archives/prophetic/kathiewaltersministy
"As an intercessor  (and we are all intercessors to some extent) our responsibility  is to allow the anointing to come on us.  When that happens you might weep, you may cry you may pray in tongues, you may roar like  lion, you may do some declaring, you may dance, you may laugh. (Laughter is warfare too. 'God looks on His enemies and laughs.')   After all, that though...LIFTS because it's not you; it's Him.  Holy Spirit laughter is so powerful, it brings down the victories. If you've never understood the laughter, your spirit begins to pick up on the victories happening in the Spirit realm and you begin to agree with them; the laughter comes, and the laughter releases the victories...Don't ever quench out the laughter it's one of the greatest warfare weapons there is."
Walters, Kathy - http://www.injesus.com/message-archives/prophetic/kathiewaltersministy/wild-wales Wales -
Pastor
Sarah Trinder's church. In the beginning there was LOTS of Holy Ghost laughter (if you didn't realize the laughter is a major warfare weapon-"God looks on His enemies and Laughs, and has them in derision.") But this afternoon at the end there was a powerful move of the Spirit when I prayed for people = almost everyone got delivered...
I realized it was because of the laughter at the beginning.  Major victories were won for people then.

- http://www.injesus.com/message-archives/prophetic/kathiewaltersministy/unseen-realm-of-the-spirit-for-you 4/19/2012 - "'WHAT HAPPENED?' I ASKED. 'I WAS JUST LISTENING TO YOU. I SAW A CHARIOT IN FRONT OF ME,
SO I GOT IN IT AND THE NEXT MINUTE I WAS INSIDE MY FRIEND'S CHURCH IN FIJI. HE WAS PREACHING.
I SAW A BIG BLACK ISLAND DEMON COME STRAIGHT AT HIM, THEN I HEARD THIS LAUGHTER AND THE DEMON LEFT
,
THEN IT CAME BACK.  I HEARD THE LAUGHTER AGAIN AND IT LEFT. THEN I WAS BACK IN THIS MEETING WITH YOU'...
SHERYL. 'WHAT HAPPENED TO YOU?' I ASKED HER...'I AM NOT SURE,' SHE SAID, 'I JUST KEPT SEEING THIS BIG BLACK DEMON THING AND LAUGHING AT IT.'
NOW YOU DO KNOW THAT HOLY GHOST LAUGHTER IS ONE OF THE BIGGEST WARFARE WEAPONS THERE IS RIGHT?
'GOD LOOKS ON HIS ENEMIES AND LAUGHS, AND HAS THEM IN DERISION.' THE LAUGHTER COMES WHEN YOUR SPIRIT PICKS UP ON A VICTORY THAT'S HAPPENING IN THE SPIRIT REALM."
