While we were in Valdosta, Georgia recently, there were major breakthroughs in the Spirit – and God showed up. There was a huge spirit of dryness that manifested in the city. Friday night I woke up in the middle of the night choking and I felt like I had been in the desert for about a month. My throat, mouth and eyes were parched. Well, we woke up in the morning, and guess what? THERE WAS NO WATER IN THE CITY.
We broke the spirit of dryness that was holding back the move of God with its religious mindsets, then we had a great meeting on Saturday – lots of freedom! The next day I received a word on Bill Yount’s newsletter about dryness and the jawbone of a donkey.
Many religious spirits live in peoples’ jawbones – they often come from repetitious praying. For example, several years ago, some people came to see me in Florida. I kept feeling a stiffness in my jawbone and I asked the visiting lady, “Were you a part of a church or denomination where there were a lot of repetitious prayers?”
She said “Yes,” but also that she didn’t do that anymore and relied on the Holy Spirit to show her how and what to pray. The next day she called me in the morning, “Can I come over to your house?” I said, “OK,” and she came right over.
Her eyes were wide open and she stared at me. “What’s up?” I said. Her reply, “My husband told me that I was sitting up in bed in the middle of the night. I was fast asleep and I was repeatedly saying the same prayers over and over. They were from an old prayer book we had years ago.”
So, I cast out the religious spirit that was sitting in her jawbone.
Another pastor friend of mine changed voices when he preached; again, that religious spirit was sitting in his jawbone. Another man I know, whenever he spoke he said a hundred “Praise Gods,” “Hallelujahs,” and “Thank You, Jesus” in one paragraph. The spirit that kept speaking out those words in such a religious way was a religious spirit – in his jaw.
The Spirit of Dryness
A spirit of dryness comes when there are a lot of works and words but not much anointing. In fact, the spirit of dryness cuts you off from the anointing and prevents people from experiencing the presence of God in any tangible way. It will prevent you from smelling the aromas, feeling God’s rain, His oil, the honey, His presence, etc.
Whatever Jesus said He also demonstrated. He said He was the Bread of Life and fed the 5,000. He said He was the Light of the world and opened the eyes of the blind. He said, ”I am the Resurrection and the Life,” and He raised the dead. Whatever He said, He did; and whatever we know, we should also experience. Otherwise, it’s just head knowledge. The devil doesn’t mind how much Scripture you know; the Pharisees knew the Scriptures, but they were spiritually dead, according to Jesus.
I feel dryness in many churches. I feel like choking and the dryness is in my eyes. That spirit of dryness often comes in when there has been maybe a strong anointing at one time, but it has gotten religious and is no longer fresh oil – and people are not being open to fresh things that God is doing. People wonder why I sometimes throw water around at the end of my meetings. Well, it’s fun, but I don’t just do it for fun. It’s because I feel dryness on many of the people, and you know what? Dry spirits literally don’t like water – any water. They run away all the quicker.
The Bible says the rebellious dwell in a dry land. Religious spirits live in dryness, in dry places – and water spirits live in the water.
There are many water spirits that dwell in the lakes and oceans around America – and they control cities from the water. Church, wake up! My friend Bishop Kenco from Ghana was a fourth generation witch doctor. Dr. Kenco was trained for 11 years under the ocean. There is a vast city under the ocean; it goes from the west coast of Africa to the Bermuda Triangle. It is one of the demonic vortexes in the earth. There are four main demonic vortexes in the earth: one is over India, one is between Iraq and Iran, one is over the Bermuda Triangle, and one is under the ocean where my friend, Dr. Kenco, was trained in high witchcraft.
But right now I am talking about spirits of dryness.
When I got back from Valdosta, Georgia, and I opened and read Bill Yount’s word on jawbones and dryness – I almost fell off the chair. Here is Bill Yount’s word below.
Kathie Walters Ministry
I sense this word is for all who have fought great battles and find themselves so thirsty for the Living God to be refreshed and revived. “A time of refreshing” is coming as a result of our intense thirst for Him in the midst of our battles.
Judges 15:15-19 And he (Samson) found a new jawbone of a donkey and put forth his hand, and took it, and slew a thousand men therewith. And Samson said, “With the jawbone of a donkey, heaps upon heaps, with the jaw of a donkey have I slain a thousand men.” And it came to pass, when he made an end of speaking, that he cast away the jawbone out of his hand, and called that place Ramathlehi (the hill of the jawbone). And he was sore athirst, and called on the LORD, and said, “Thou hast given this great deliverance into the hand of thy servant: and now shall I die for thirst, and fall into the hand of the uncircumcised?”
But God clave (cut open) an hollow place that was in the jaw, and there came water thereout; and when he had drunk, his spirit came again, and he revived: wherefore he called the name thereof Enhakkore (the spring of him who prayed), which is in Lehi unto this day.
A Fresh Anointing in Your Mouth
For God’s people who have fought great battles, I sense new power coming upon your life and ministry. I sense you are going to find a “new jawbone” (a fresh anointing in your mouth) to destroy the enemies of God’s people by the multitudes. The dryness will go as you seek a new, fresh impartation from the Lord for yourself.
God will be in your mouth teaching you to speak as though you have never spoken before, speaking His words with great power and authority. It will be known in many ministries.
John 7:46 “Never (a) man spake like this man” (women and children included).
Samson got so thirsty from fighting the enemy with that jawbone that he thought he was going to die. God cut a hollow place in that jawbone and water came out of it to give Samson drink to revive him. I see the Lord as though He is cutting a hollow place in your jaw (creating an empty place in our lives, giftings, ministries and good works).
When these even godly things begin to fill our hearts instead of Him, our mouths become dry and parched like Samson’s did. But as we thirst for only Him, He satisfies our mouth with good things. For out of the abundance of a heart full of God, our lips become fruitful, releasing a “new jawbone” anointing!
God is creating a hollow (empty) place in us to increase our thirst for Him more than anything else. As a result of you opening your mouth wide with great thirst, He is going to fill you and give you a “new jawbone” that will revive many people and become a spring to multitudes. From the place of your “seemingly dying of thirst” will come forth rivers of living water right out of your belly!
I sense the Lord saying, “I will surely be in thy mouth. With a new jawbone you shall slay the enemy – heaps upon heaps! Get ready to kill a thousand Philistines!”
