Are You Drinking
Energy Drinks?

Did you notice what it says on the bottom of the can?

Energy Drinks!


Spiritual Warfare Continued


Could you imagine a child of GOD waking up Monday morning, eating their breakfast, then drinking one of these on their way to work?


Or better yet! How about drinking one of these Sunday morning to help you wake up, and get you energized to worship GOD in church?



Or how about this one?


Or even this one?


Could there be a lot more going on with energy drinks than most children of GOD suspect?

In the article below, I am going to go into great detail on just how much I suffered battling the demon behind the addiction to – Caffeine & Energy Drinks.

Some of you might be confused about the above statement - (battling a demon of caffeine.) I promise you, keep reading and I pray the LORD will bless you with more and more truths!!

Most of you probably do not realize it, but if you are drinking caffeine every single day, even feeling compelled to get some coffee or an energy drink when you wake up, you are addicted to caffeine and you also most likely have that terrible spirit living with you.

The evil spirit I am talking about associates himself with – Caffeine!!


Maybe you never heard this before, but when we children of GOD are being compelled to do something, that is demonic. Some of you reading this are compelled to smoke cigarettes, others of you are being compelled to do Internet gaming, while many others of you are wanting and needing to have caffeine on your way to school or work in the morning.

I repeat, when we are being compelled, when we are addicted to coffee, energy drinks and caffeine, that clearly shows demonic influence. We are being enslaved to each addiction that we are living with.

JESUS came to set us free!


Satan wants to tie us all down in spiritual chains of darkness and enslavement.


This was my favorite energy drink to buy on the way to work for about 3 years of my life.

I would stop at the gas station just a few blocks from my workplace to pick up a can before I started my long 12 hour shift. Once in a while the gas station would be sold out of the No Fear energy drink, and I would have to grudgingly settle for a different brand.
I was not happy when that happened!


*Energy drinks are typically attractive to young people. Approximately 65% percent of its drinkers are between the ages of 13 and 35 years old, with males being approximately 65% of the market

GOD has called us out of the world →

1 Corinthians 1:2
I am writing to God’s church in Corinth, to you who have been called by God to be his own
holy people.

Here we have a company that manufactured an energy drink based off of a game called – World of Warcraft.

For those of you who don’t know, approximately 15 million people in the world play this occult black magic game about every single week.


I have been fighting the addiction to gaming almost my entire life. I tell you straight.

*Most Americans who have an Energy Drink addiction, also game!


* Most Americans who have a gaming addiction, also drink Energy drinks!


You might be asking why?


Please continue to read and may the LORD help us to understand.

Are you computer, console or Internet gaming at this time? Please click here!

Here we have another manufacturer who created a energy drink that is based off of the name – Cocaine!


Have any of us stopped to think just how much cocaine has devastated lives, marriages and families not only in the USA, but all over the world? How many American deaths can be tied in to the person using cocaine?

Are the symbols on some of the cans offensive to GOD? Are they promoting anything good in our culture?

Look at what GOD says →

Leviticus 20:26
You must be
holy because I, the Lord, am holy. I have set you apart from all other people to be my very own.

Let's stop here for a second. If we children of GOD know that some of the symbols on the cans themselves look quite evil, why on earth would be buy one and then drink what is inside?

I am not judging anyone, I myself did the exact same thing for years!

Could it be said that most of the symbols on the very cans themselves would be more satanic in nature than GODLY?

Did any of you happen to notice what it says on the very bottom of this can?

By the way, what does that symbol of the star stand for on most of their cans?


Here is another scripture →

1 Samuel 6:20
“Who is able to stand in the presence of the Lord, this
holy God?” they cried out.

Can the demonic or a specific demon be given permission to be associated with an energy drink because of the artwork on the can?

Have any of you children of GOD reading this article right now, heard stories of Christian people bringing into their own homes different pieces of art work, only to learn later that a demonic spirit was connected with the art? I tell you the truth, this happens all over the world!!

And another →

Exodus 19:6
And you will be my kingdom of priests, my
holy nation.

Did you notice on the bottom of this can it says it is –> Highly Addictive!


Would simply just drinking this drink give a demon permission to enslave you in an addiction?


The late Derek Prince made it crystal clear in his teachings, that just about ALL addictions have an evil spirit behind the addiction.

 Derek Prince would go on to say that an evil spirit would try to do two things in us when associated with something that could be addictive.

  1. Compel a person!

  1. Enslave that same person!

Derek Prince taught that when a demon or demons can COMPEL and ENSLAVE a person, that = ADDICTION.

Compelling + Enslaving = ADDICTION!


Should Holy Righteous children of GOD even be thinking about drinking this? ->

What would your Christian friends say if you showed up to Wednesday night prayer meeting at church holding this energy drink? --->>>


God says →

Psalm 77:13
O God, your ways are
holy. Is there any god as mighty as you?

If it is clearly NOT OK to drink that bottle up above, why would anyone think it is OK to drink this one →




This one →


During the last 5 years, have you noticed how energy drinks have practically taken over most of the refrigerator space in 7-11's and gas stations?

Are You Battling Bad Thoughts? Please Click Here!!

Entire aisles in super markets are now dedicated to energy drinks and caffeine associated drinks.

What is really going on here????

Are the people of not only the USA but the world being introduced to a new type of enslavement? Kind of like how the world was when companies starting manufacturing cigarettes and selling them world wide?

What about the worldwide addiction problem to alcohol?

*The energy-drink sales market in 2009 in the United States stood at $4 billion dollars, and was expected to grow to $10 billion in 2010. Can we even guess how high it is now in 2011?

Energy drink sales are not just popular in the USA, sales are exploding all over the world from what I could tell using the Internet.

As you drive around in your car, or walk around in your school, have you noticed how many people are drinking energy drinks?

Would any of you consider that having the symbols on this bottle a lone could give a demon permission to be associated with this drink?

Would this topic even cross your mind?


How do you think our FATHER in heaven would feel about us having a painting of that symbol in our own living rooms? Do you think GOD would be pleased with us?

I WONDER what GOD thinks about this drink?

Did you read what they said on the can? 


Over and over and over in the bible GOD makes statements like this →

Leviticus 22:32
Do not bring shame on my
holy name, for I will display my holiness among the people of Israel. I am the Lord who makes you holy.

Did any of you notice how blasphemous a lot of the art work on the cans truly are?

More people than we could possibly count in the USA and other parts of the world are addicted to marijuana.

Studies say that about 30% of all college students have used Marijuana In the last year.

Do you feel THE HOLY GHOST would be pleased with us as we drink this can –>>>

On this can it says – BRING OUT THE BEAST!


This energy drink says to burn!

Does this can have godly pictures on it?



Here is one last scripture out of the hundreds and hundreds I had to choose from before the real article starts →

Deuteronomy 14:2
You have been set apart as
holy to the Lord your God, and he has chosen you from all the nations of the earth to be his own special treasure.

And now for the real article.


I want to share with my brothers and sisters reading this article a few of the revelations that JESUS has been teaching me over the last five years!


Because I love you and I care about you and your walk with the LORD.

I was sound a asleep when my alarm clock woke me up at 5:30pm. It was winter so it was already dark outside. I was working for a limousine company, and they had me on the graveyard shift. So 3-4 nights a week I would clock in at 7pm and work straight through till 7 am. I did this for 3 ½ years.

I would hop in the shower and get dressed as fast as I could, because I had a long drive ahead of me to get to work on time. Getting off of work and going to bed at 8am in the morning can be quite difficult because of all of the cars and noise outside, and after all, the sun was just coming up. So, whether I slept good or not, each night that my alarm clock would go off at 5:30pm, I knew I had to get up and get going quickly.

Most of the time, I would pick up some fast food for dinner, and then, just a few blocks away from our offices, I would stop at the gas station where they sold my favorite energy drink.

My Favorite 5 years ago

I would park my car, grab my food and my energy drink, race up into my office and clock in just seconds before 7pm.

Just like most people, I thought buying a energy drink was just as harmless as drinking water. I sure had a lot to learn and JESUS was going to make sure that I learned all that he wanted me to learn over the next five years.

During the 3 ½ years of drinking energy drinks at work, I was slowly noticing a few different things. I noticed that many times after I drank the energy drink, there would be some changes inside of me. I was noticing some physical changes, some psychological and many spiritual and emotional changes too.

I noticed for example many times I would get moody, or irritable, or short tempered with my co workers. Sometimes I would lose my tempter for no reason whatsoever. What I mean is, a limousine driver might be asking me a question about one of his jobs, and out of nowhere I would lose my temper and either scream a little bit, or simply just be rude and mean to him.

Look at what the Apostle Paul says →

1 Corinthians 6:19
Don’t you realize that your body is the temple of the
Holy Spirit, who lives in you and was given to you by God?

I didn’t know what was wrong with me. I had no idea why this was happening. A few different times I would bring up such topics with a Christian brother at work, but he couldn’t help me.

On many work nights, at 5:30pm when I woke up, quite often I would start praying and worshiping the LORD JESUS. I would even do this the entire time in the shower, and on the entire driving trip to work.

I would buy my dinner, buy an energy drink, and go up into my office feeling fantastic spiritually.

Only to realize, that a short time later, I was feeling down again, or sad, lonely, depressed, especially irritable and short tempered. Even lust would attack me on many occasions. Some nights at work, I would even feel the entire spiritual atmosphere around me change. Even the evil spirit of depression would attack me sometimes. I had no idea why this was happening, after all, I was simply just doing my job at work the best I could. I literally had no idea why this would happen to me, and I never heard any Christian person in my life teaching on this very important topic.

This went on for a very long time!

Many times after drinking an energy drink, I would get the most terrible headaches. The headaches happened slowly over a period of years, not at the beginning of this long lesson. Sometimes I would get terrible pressure especially in the back of my head. I never even suspected that something suspicious, or evil or even an attack might be happening to me. Many times that pain in the back of my neck would start at my lower neck and go all the way up to the top of the back of my head.

Because I was working only 3-4 nights a week, obviously I was off 3-4 days a week too. I started lifting weights as a hobby, and I use to buy a special powerful energy powder that I would mix in water to give me more energy on the days I lifted weights. This product was expensive, and actually it is a very famous brand which I am not going to mention here.

So on my days off, I would wake up, take a shower, and I would count the minutes until I could mix this weight lifting powder in the water and drink it slowly. I would drink it about 30 minutes before I started exercising and wow did it work good.

Do you think GOD would be pleased with you if you drank this drink?

From the moment I woke up, I was thinking about making my drink. My heart would start beating faster just thinking about it. At first, I didn’t know that this powerful weight lifting powder was simply an energy drink. But as time went on, and I read about this product, I learned that it was simply just a very powerful energy drink.

Little did I know that all of this behavior was causing me to be slowly chained down into a terrible and nasty addiction.

I was slowly being compelled to have an energy drink every day, many times even buying two or three of them.

There are many of you reading this who have to have coffee or caffeine as soon as you wake up too.

I was being enslaved and nobody knew I was suffering, or cared enough to help but the LORD!

Look at how gracious GOD is →

2 Timothy 4:18
Yes, and the Lord will deliver me from every
evil attack and will bring me safely into his heavenly Kingdom.

So on the nights I worked, I would buy a energy drink to drink at work. And, on my days off, I would go ahead and take this weight lifting product as soon as I possibly could in the morning to start my day off. I would even drink it on days that I had NO intentions of lifting weights.

After a few years of this, on the nights I worked, I would mix together a little of the powder energy drink into a huge cup of water, and bring this in a sports container to work so I could sip it all night long and keep me energized into the wee hours of the morning.

I was being enslaved, and unfortunately for me, the demonic did NOT stop there!

Do you feel THE HOLY GHOST would be pleased with you drinking this drink ->

I explained above some of the symptoms that would happen to me while at work and after drinking an energy drink. But on my days off, something slightly different was happening.

Once again, the LORD was teaching me something very slowly. I noticed that after drinking an energy drink in the morning, many times a spirit of lust would enter me. I could actually feel the lust come, attack me, and stay with me all day and night.

Other times, after drinking that same powder, I would be extremely tempted to Internet game. And I just didn’t Internet game, I played a very evil occult type game which I knew I was not allowed to play.

I had no idea that there might be a connection between energy drinks and lust, or energy drinks and gaming! I had nobody to help me, nobody to teach me, nobody in the Christian community was speaking about this and I felt all a lone and helpless.

I tried to call a Christian brother of mine for help, but he just didn’t have the education at that time in his life nor I to understand what was going on.

Simply just having an energy drink could bring some very strong temptations to me, and these temptations led me into some very sinful activities such as pornography, bad music, alcohol and ESPECIALLY playing black magic type games on my computer.

Here is what was happening..............

When we take drugs, yes drugs of any kind at all whether legal or illegal, it feeds our flesh! As we continue to take, drink, smoke, swallow, shoot up or sniff drugs, the evil carnal nature inside of us gets stronger and stronger... Now as our flesh gets stronger, it attracts the demons to us. So as we continue to drink caffeine, our flesh gets stronger, now a few demons will come to us and start attacking us. I was being attacked with the demons of lust and the demons behind internet gaming.

You might get attacked in a different way. GOD designed us all to be different. So you might get attacked by going back to masturbation, or going back to smoking weed, or going back to gossiping etc etc.

Remember children of GOD, as we continue to take drugs whether they are legal or illegal, they do feed our flesh and we will start to have some seriously fleshly and demonic problems in no time at all!

In the beginning, I had no idea what was happening to me. I was wondering why other Christian people I knew didn’t have these problems, yet I did and was struggling so badly in sin!

I didn’t know at the time that the addictions to gaming, caffeine, pornography and alcohol were a worldwide problem Christian's were battling against. Of course satan was telling me I was all alone in my suffering which was another lie.

A typical day off of work would go like this. I would wake up, make a very powerful energy drink. Drink it real slowly because it tasted so good. Lift weights for about one hour, while noticing that I was now being tempted to either watch porn, game, buy some alcohol or do other sinful activities.

GOD asks us →

James 1:21
So get rid of all the filth and
evil in your lives

This type of behavior would go on week after week, month after month even year after year.

Of course the LORD would set me free from the sinning, condemnation, rejection and the addictions at his perfect timing, but the problem was, the energy drinks tasted good! So even though JESUS would set me free from time to time from that terrible addiction, I actually wanted to go buy one whether I was at work, or it was a day off because of how good they tasted.

Little did I know, that each time I was buying and drinking an energy drink, there was an enemy that was getting permission to attack me.

I have no idea what this evil spirit is called, so I simply call him the evil spirit behind caffeine, coffee and energy drinks!

I didn’t know back then, that when one spirit enters us, besides keeping us chained down in torment, his other main job is to get a door opened for another evil spirit to enter. So now there would be two spirits in me. Those two would work real hard to further enslave me and get another door opened for a third demon to enter.

One of the main goals of each demon is to get a door opened in us for another evil spirit to enter!

Look at this can!

To give you a better explanation →

The LORD would set me completely free, and I would be feeling great once again praise GOD. I would simply and innocently go buy an energy drink down the block at the store, and drink it because it tasted good. By doing that, I was giving the demon behind caffeine addiction permission to come against me again. Now I might get a headache, or feel terrible pressure in my head, or get very irritable etc etc etc...... Even though all of that would happen, now quite often an evil spirit of lust would come. Those spirits would tempt me to sin in lustful ways, and many times I would fail, give in and sin. Then I would be tempted to buy alcohol! Many days I would drink an energy drink when I woke up, then go buy beer a few hours later and get drunk while I watched porn. At this point, we could assume that I would have about 3-4 demons inside of me. Many times after all of that sinful behavior, I would be enslaved into a terrible gaming addiction. I could be found gaming from 12 noon until 5am in the morning day after day, week after week month after month until the LORD would come in and save the day.

This is one of the things GOD asks us to do through the Apostle Peter →

1 Peter 1:15
But now you must be
holy in everything you do, just as God who chose you is holy.

At this time, I had quit working for that limousine company and I was UN employed for quite a while.

During some terrible valley experiences, the above scenario would go on week after week, month after month and nobody on earth knew about it or cared enough to ask.

I had no idea how to be free from this terrible bondage that would happen over and over again.

Those 4-5 demons would not stop there. They would open up the doors for a spirit of Self condemnation to enter me, then the spirit of rejection would enter, then the spirit of loneliness, sadness, depression and even despair.

Many times, by simply drinking an energy drink and opening a door for a demon to enter me, a short time later, I could be living with 10-20 different demons all inside of me, and their goal was to destroy me.

I had no idea at the time how addictions worked, what is behind them, or how we people get addicted to different things in our lives.

During the long period that I was UN employed, the LORD was now speeding up my learning process on how this addiction to caffeine and many other addictions that people battle were slowly destroying us.

GOD was teaching me how when we allow one demon to enter us, a short time later there could be even 10 or much MUCH more living with us. All because we want to smoke, drink, watch, listen to or read things that are hurting us, that are UN biblical, UN godly and out right evil.

If you do not believe that energy drinks hurt us - use your search engine and type in – (deaths cause by energy drinks?) You might be surprised by how many articles come up!

*Energy drinks are outlawed on some college learning campuses and even some military installations!

Wouldn’t it be safe to say that most American people are addicted to caffeine at this time?

What do you think about this can?

Then, can we also say that most American people have an evil spirit of caffeine living with them?

If you are addicted to caffeine, and you are being compelled to have caffeine, most likely you do!

The Apostle Peter goes on to say →

1 Peter 2:5

What’s more, you are his holy priests.

Each night I woke up to go to work, or on my days off, I was being compelled to buy an energy drink. It would make my heart beat a little faster just thinking about it. I would get a slight excitement inside of me as I got closer and closer to buying one.

I loved the LORD, I loved the bible, I did not want to watch porn, I did not want to spend thousands of hours Internet gaming. I had no idea that simply buying another energy drink could cause so much havoc in my life, let alone in other peoples lives. I had no idea that just drinking caffeine can and will open a door inside of us for the spirit assigned to caffeine to start the process of enslaving us.

Most educated Christian people would agree that when we get drunk, we open up a door to allow a demon to enter us. Those same Christian people would also agree that if we watch porn, that opens a door for a spirit of lust or defilement to enter us too.

So why would coffee and caffeine be any different?

Some of you might be thinking that when we get drunk we are out of our right mind, that we lost a little control of our will while we are drunk and that is the sin that allows a demon to enter us.

Well, what happens when we drink an energy drink? The professionals agree that it changes our emotions, that it changes our psyche, that it changes the way we think, feel, speak, act and behave.

So after all of that, are you now starting to see how dangerous it can be to have any addiction whatsoever, including a caffeine addiction?

The reason why Christian people will argue with this article is because they LOVE caffeine. They do not want to give it up!


I love it too, but with the LORD'S help, all of the bondage in our lives, all that enslaves us, all that compels us, we can be free from in CHRIST JESUS.

We are royal priests!! Wow →

1 Peter 2:9

You are royal priests, a holy nation

At first I had no idea what was wrong with me. Praise JESUS he had a plan for me, a long experience to go through in my life. The LORD was going to teach me about addictions, and part of the learning process was to actually suffer in them, and be torn apart by them for a period of time each time I fell.

Some of you might think, I love coffee so much, I don’t care if there is a demon behind the caffeine addiction.

I understand your point, many days I wanted to have an energy drink so badly, even thought I knew a demon would come, I didn't care too!

This was similar to one of the drinks I would buy sometimes->

The problem is, that one demon will work day and night non stop on you to get another one of his brothers to live in you. Those two will work on you day and night non stop and on and on and on. Before you know it, you will have lust with you, loneliness, sadness, smoking or drug addiction, depression, despair and even thoughts of suicide.

I use to cry out to the LORD - ( I love the taste of these drinks). Why is it such a big deal JESUS that I want to buy an energy drink to help me wake up?

Well, after going through this very tough lesson for about 6 years now, we CANNOT, we must NOT open a single window for the demonic to enter us. No matter what we have to give up, we must keep ourselves guarded at all times from allowing the demonic to enter us. I not only had to give up all energy drinks and all other caffeinated drinks, I had to give up some of my favorite music too!

Sometimes, after drinking an energy drink, I would take close notice and realize that NO other demon was attacking me except the caffeine one. That is when a terrible headache might come, or deep pressure in the back of my head. Sometimes some cloudiness would come, maybe a little bit of confusion, and just a general feeling of being oppressed in my mind.

Many times, after drinking an energy drink, I could actually hear with my own ears the demon either wrap his tail, or his claw around my right ear. It sounded just like the sound that rope makes when you tighten it around something. That was quite an experience the first time it happened to me. The LORD was really showing me how big of a deal it is to be living with addictions.

I also have a spiritual gift that helps me to see, feel and hear in the spirit realm sometimes. This gift allows me more so to understand just how much the demonic are attacking us. And with energy drinks it is no different. There is quite a lot of demonic activity when we start drinking an energy drink. In fact, I would say the same demonic activity happens over energy drinks that happens when we drink alcohol and get drunk.

I should know, I suffered in them both.

A typical month might go like this. I would buy an energy drink every single day, suffer with the consequences, and then command that evil spirit to leave me. This would go on day after day after day.

Each morning I would wake up, and the evil spirit was right by my side tempting me to to buy another one. In the beginning, I would give in and buy them day after day, only to command the demon to leave later on in the afternoon. Over the period of time, JESUS is giving me grace to learn how to say no to temptations.

Some nights, the demon behind caffeine would wake me up from a deep sleep and put a icy cold pain in my chest around my heart area. That went on for quite a while until one night the LORD gave me a revelation. He told me that a demon was behind this activity and to cast it out. I commanded the demon out and that problem went away immediately.

In fact, each time I commanded the demon out of me, no matter how he was attacking my chest, head, mind or anything else, he would go, praise GOD!

Another time, after drinking the energy drinks for a few months, a demon somehow made it sound like I had a second heart inside of my chest! What I mean is, there WAS NOT a second heart in me, but an evil spirit made it sound like and feel like there was two hearts beating. This was a very particular and strange experience to go through.

Do the demons do this kind of behavior ?


Are the evil spirits that tricky, that deceptive, that sneaky?

OH YES THEY ARE if they can get away with it.

The real battle started when JESUS taught me that it was a sin to continue to drink an energy drink. After learning that, now when I failed and bought one, I felt ashamed and many times condemnation would enter me. Now, not only did I have to battle the caffeine demon, now I also had to work on getting the demons of shame and condemnation out of me too.

These were very, very serious learning experiences to go through.

The demons do NOT attack everyone in the same way.

For example →

  1. When I would have an energy drink, quite often a spirit of lust, or an evil spirit behind Internet gaming would come next. This was not always the order, but most of the time it went that way

  1. For someone else addicted to caffeine, you might drink an energy drink and have a completely different spirit come to you! The demonic does not attack everyone in the exact same way, using the exact same strategies.

One thing I will share with you, just about all addictions have an evil spirit behind them compelling the child of GOD and enslaving that person farther and farther into darkness.

Some of you reading this do not believe me. Look at what the experts say -->>

*A variety of physiological and psychological effects have been attributed to energy drinks and their ingredients.

*Excess consumption of energy drinks may induce mild to moderate euphoria primarily caused by stimulant properties of caffeine and may also induce agitation, anxiety, irritability and insomnia.

It has been suggested that reversal of caffeine withdrawal is a major component of the effects of caffeine on mood and performance.

So what is an energy drink?

It is a drug!! It is a mood and mind altering drug.

These energy drinks have 3-4 times the caffeine in them as a normal Coca Cola has. Because of the caffeine, and some of the other ingredients, they cause the person who drinks them to behave just as if he is taking drugs! That would also include a person who drinks a double, triple or quadruple shot of coffee each day!

When you first drink an energy drink, it acts as an upper. It causes the person to feel energized, even feeling a little euphoric and aggressive. As the drugs wear off, as the caffeine and other ingredients wear off, it now acts as a downer!

Can you think of even one other drug that is an UPPER and a DOWNER?

So drinking a single energy drink will act as an UPPER and a DOWNER inside of the person who drinks it.

Even alcohol only acts as a Downer.

Energy drinks, coffee and all other heavily caffeinated drinks do both!!

I am convinced that when we drink any heavily caffeine based drink constantly, over a period of time, this MOST ASSUREDLY DOES give the demonic permission to enter the person drinking them.


Because it is a drug and it changes our reality, our feelings, our perception, how we speak, how we think, how we behave and how we react to others!

Many Christian people who have studied the demonic extensively will tell you that if a person is smoking Marijuana, that person will have the associated demon in them. And, if a person is addicted to cigarettes, that person will most definitely have that demon in them. If a person is addicted to cocaine, heroine or any other drug, those people will have the associated demons living in them.


*Is it because they are legal to buy?

*Is it because they are for sale everywhere we look?

*Is it because it is so accepted in our American society and most other places in the western world?

*Can it be because the caffeine based drinks taste so good like Coffee and Energy Drinks?

*Can it be because we love caffeine?

For those of you who don’t know, the addiction to energy drinks and caffeine is a world wide problem, not just here in America!

Some of you might say, well the energy drink that I drink doesn’t have caffeine in it.

The soft drink makers have learned to hide the caffeine now. Here are just some of the ways they are hiding it → Caffeine can be disguised as guarana, green tea extract, and coffee extract so be aware of this when reading the energy drink labels.

The real danger we have to watch out for is the addiction. So whether your favorite drink has caffeine or not, if you are addicted to coffee or energy drinks, we learned up above that just about all addictions have a demon compelling you, enslaving you, trying to get a door opened in you for another of his brothers to enter you!

That is the REAL DANGER!!

Here is something else that the LORD is teaching me.

Sometimes I would get weak, buy a energy drink, drink it, then unfortunately I would feel the presence of the demon come back to me. I would repent, command the evil spirit to leave, and re dedicate myself to breaking free from that addiction. A few days later I would say NO to the temptation to buy an energy drink, but walk to the liquor store next door to where I live and buy a Coca Cola, or a Cherry Pepsi. I didn’t think that would be a sin, I didn’t think that drinking a Coke could allow that same demon back to me, but boy was I wrong. I noticed that when I bought and drank any drink with caffeine, that same demon would try to torment me and enter me.

I thought this was very UN fair!

I complained to the LORD about this.

Many times I would say – (Come on LORD, this is just a Coke!)

But still, the same demon, the same addiction would try to come back. This experience lasted about six months as the LORD JESUS slowly taught me more about this topic.

See people, once we are addicted to something like pornography, it is NOT OK to look at porn even once in a while, not even for 10 minutes.

Likewise, once the LORD sets us free from cigarette addiction, it is NOT OK to smoke even once in a while.

One more example.

Once the LORD sets us free from a gambling addiction, it is NOT OK to gamble even once in a while, NOT even once a month. If we do, that demon and the addiction can come RIGHT BACK TO US AGAIN.

So, once a person is set free from the evil addiction of caffeine, it is NOT OK to go drink a Coca Cola. Even if you have gone two months without drinking caffeine, still, it is NOT OK to buy a Cherry Coke while you eat your pizza. That in itself could allow the demon to come back to you starting the process once again of enslaving you.

As we walk with the LORD JESUS over a period of time, the HOLY GHOST will show us more and more what he would like us to get rid of out of our lives. GOD does this because he loves you, because he loves me. GOD wants us to be FREE IN CHRIST! GOD wants to set us free from satan and all of satans snares and traps he is using against the children of GOD.

When we are enslaved and compelled with many addictions, that is the EXACT OPPOSITE of being FREE IN CHRIST.

This has been a very long five year experience to go through, and it has been a very, VERY difficult one too. I praise GOD that he loves me, that he wants me to be free, that he cares about me enough to teach me these wonderful truths so not only I can be free, but that HE can use me to help others too.

Some people are waking up and drinking this drink

I will finish this article with one last true story.

Last night I went out on a date!

For those of you who know me, you know that I am engaged to get married, and that my fiancee is living in Romania right now.

So last night I decided to go out on a date, a date with JESUS. The LORD taught me to do this starting about two years ago and it sure is a lot of fun. I got dressed in some really nice clothes, I sprayed myself with one of my best colognes and I walked a few blocks away to a nice, romantic and very small Italian restaurant! I have had many dates with the LORD at this tiny restaurant so I knew exactly what I wanted to order. I ordered one of their wonderful salads and a slice of pizza for me, then I ordered for the LORD a Cherry Coke which is my absolute favorite, while ordering a lemonade for myself to drink. I always sit down, pull out the LORD'S chair for him to sit in, and I put his drink on his side of the table for him to drink. In the last two years I have never seen him take a sip yet, but I assure all of you reading this, he is really there. The waitress brought my wonderful salad to eat first, while I was having some romantic conversation with JESUS. I finished my salad and then she brought my slice of pizza. I love to get pizza at this place because they put real, fresh chunks of garlic on each slice that you order. Tonight, the cook went a little crazy because he put a lot of chunks of garlic on my pizza. I had finished about half of the huge slice of pizza when the waitress walked by and asked if everything was OK. I asked her if I could get a refill for my lemonade please. She grabbed my lemonade away from my table and walked into the back of the restaurant. Meanwhile, I was taking a few more bites of this very spicy garlic pizza and my mouth was burning. I mean it was literally burning. I kept looking for her to bring my lemonade back to me every few seconds, but she never brought it. I saw that she was up front talking with different people and working. I took another bit of my pizza and the garlic really burned the top part of my mouth badly. I looked over at her again and it was now clear to me that she was not bringing me another lemonade. I quickly panicked for a second as my mouth was burning, I didn’t know what to do. So I grabbed JESUS' Cherry Coke and took a few big drinks out of it. As soon as I did that I had realize that I just drank some caffeine. Praise GOD the LORD understood and he is so patient, loving, merciful and loving with us. No demonic attack came to me, nothing changed as far as I know at our dinner table, and the LORD and myself had a wonderful time. After I slipped up and took a few big drinks of his Cherry Coke, I decided to walk up to the waitress smiling at her and asking where is my lemonade. Well, she misunderstood me and she thought that I was done with my lemonade so she threw it out.

This is how careful all of us should be when it comes to sinning, or diving back into our old addictions that the LORD had already set us free in!!!

Once the LORD sets us free from any of our terrible addictions whether it be cigarette smoking, gambling, pornography, alcohol or caffeine, we want to walk around each day with our full armor of GOD on saying NO to all of the evil temptations that come our way. JESUS loves you, he loves me and he will help us along this long, hard and difficult journey that we call life.

I pray that you will make JESUS the very love of your life, and that the full blessings of the LORD will rain down over your entire life! May GOD bless you greatly!

I would like to finish this short article with one last scripture that I feel is very important for us Children of GOD to fully understand!

Ephesians 6:12
For we are not fighting against flesh-and-blood enemies, but against
evil rulers and authorities of the unseen world, against mighty powers in this dark world, and against evil spirits in the heavenly places.

Love, your servant Garrett
