In the vision, after the man became obsessed, Jesus
narrated, “This evil spirit obsessing this man is one of
the rulers of the darkness of this world—one of the
higher order of demon spirits. The rulers of the
darkness of this world are the ones that get ahold of a
person and will eventually possess him, if the person
lets him. And there are degrees of possession.”
Jesus then explained that when these rulers of the
darkness of this world, this higher order of evil spirits,
get ahold of an unsaved person, they let other spirits in
with them. Jesus said, “I’ll show you how this higher
order of evil spirits lets in other evil spirits.” Then in
the vision I saw the evil spirit in the man’s mind hold
up something that looked like a trapdoor in the top of
the man’s head.
I watched as that demon that did the possessing let
many other evil spirits (they looked like big flies) enter
into the man through that trapdoor in the man’s head.
So many of these big fly-like evil spirits came into the
man’s mind through that trapdoor, I couldn’t count
them all. They looked like big flies, but that ruling
spirit, the evil spirit that first whispered in the man’s
ear, looked like a little monkey or an elf.
Jesus talked to me about those evil spirits that
looked like flies. He explained that they were of a lower
order of evil spirit and primarily obeyed just what they
were told. They didn’t have much intelligence of their
Do we find anything in Scripture about this lower
order of evil spirits that look like flies? Yes, we do.
Jesus reminded me of the account in Matthew 12:24
when the Pharisees accused Him of casting out devils,
not by the finger of God, but by Beelzebub (Matt. 12:24-
28). Jesus told me that Beelzebub means “lord of flies”
or “lord of the dunghill” (Matt. 12:24-28). In other
words, Beelzebub, or Satan, has dominion over and is
lord over all demons and evils spirits.
In the vision, Jesus explained that one of the higher
class of demons—the rulers of darkness—first approach
a person in order to gain access to him and try to get
control of him, if the person will allow it. Then once that
higher order of demon gains access to the person, the
ruler of darkness lets in this lower class of evil spirits too.
Once the ruler of darkness let the other spirits in
with it, in the vision, I saw the evil spirit of that higher
order go down inside the man into his spirit. Still
narrating, Jesus said, “Now the man is possessed by
that evil spirit.”
Jesus explained to me that even in the case of this
unsaved man, he was first just oppressed by the evil
spirit that came to whisper the devil’s thoughts to his
mind. Then as the man yielded to thinking those
thoughts, he became obsessed with the devil’s thoughts.
The man kept yielding his thinking to that evil spirit
until finally through the man’s own consent the evil
spirit was able to possess the man’s spirit.
Then Jesus explained to me, “The higher class of
demons—a ruler of darkness—got control of the man
first, and it is the one that did the possessing. It is
always a ruler of darkness that does the possessing.
Then that higher order of demon let in all the others
with him.” All of those evil spirits were in the man, of
course, but it was the demon of the higher order that
first enticed the man and entered his mind that fully
