Testimony Tuesday: How Cunning Is Satan?

Welcome to Testimony Tuesday. I’d like to spend time today giving my testimony of how I came to understand how cunning Satan really is. I will also post a video where I talk about this very topic as well. Please come at this ready to learn.


That doesn’t surprise us, for even Satan transforms himself to appear as an angel of light! (2 Corinthians 11:14)  

I want to tell you of an experience today that brought this verse home to me. I was commanded by the Lord to read the book of Ezekiel. I have stated before on this blog that there was a time when I was reading nothing but the old-time preachers such as Theodore Austin-Sparks, Charles Spurgeon, John Calvin, John Owen, Martin Luther, etc. It was during this time that one day, I awoke to the unction from the Spirit that I must read Ezekiel. I actually had a dream during this time that I had eatten a piece of paper that had a message on it from the Lord. This dream was pertaining to the Women’s Bible study which I was teaching at at that time–only 8 women.

The Sneaky Dream

One day, I had a dream that Kat Kerr was teaching. I couldn’t make out what she was saying. However, when I woke up from the dream, I felt like the Lord was telling me to listen to videos of Kat Kerr. At least 1 video is an eight-hour compilation. Another one is 3 hours of her teaching. On top of that, there are a plethora of other videos. It would take me years of nothing but listening to her if I were ever going to listen to all of the videos. And then it happened.

The Lord’s Rebuke

My excuse for going on this endeavor was that perhaps, the Lord had changed His mind. I should have known. More experienced people than I have taught that the Lord never tells you to do something else if He cannot trust you to do the last thing He told you to do. Even Kat Kerr herself says this. Well, the following Prophetic Word that I will post below is exactly what brought me to my knees!


When I read this word, that was the first time I had ever repented when reading one of Lana Vawser’s words. It was simply because the Lord was already speaking with me about disobedience and so through His prophet, He confirmed what He had already been speaking to me. It just hit home more when I read this Word. Also, if you are looking for a prophetic voice to listen to, she’s one of them I highly recommend. I have now done an about-face and I have read in the Expositor’s Bible the entirety of Ezekiel and intend to study it to the full. I’m still not as obedient as I should be, I confess.

Conclusion of Testimony

In conclusion to this testimony, I would like to post the video that I uploaded the day that this happened. Please feel free to post your feedback.


If there is anyone who either would like to rededicate their lives to the Lord or have never received Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior? I want to give you a resource to help. After you take a look at this, you need to plug into a local Church community that teaches sound doctrine. God bless!
