[The following is a vision Bob shared in Albany, OR, 9/30/06.  It is about starving the strongholds in your life, those places in the thought life and mind, so they aren't fed and nurtured any more. ]


"I was aboard a big luxury liner.  Everything was beautiful and going well. But there was a big lion eating everybody.  And that lion got after me.  I ran through a ship door and he followed me.  I put the hatches on the door and ran around to the other door and locked the hatches.  In the vision I said, "Lord how do I get this lion off the ship?"  He said, "You don't, you leave him in there and you starve him."  You never open those hatches again, you starve him.  You starve him to death.  The lion is a lie that many of you have bought. 


He is saying begin to show them how to lock the lie up on the inside so it doesn't get out.  He said that you have plumbing in your heads.  And a lot of plumbing gets stopped up at different times.  Or its gets plugged so the flow goes to different ways and you think thoughts you don't want to think.


1 Peter 5:6-9 NKJV

Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God, that He may exalt you in due time, casting all your care upon Him, for He cares for you. Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. Resist him, steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same sufferings are experienced by your brotherhood in the world.


You think you are the only one, and you don't realize everybody else is going through the same thing.  So what is this lion?  It is lies you have agreed with instead of this Word.  Submit yourselves to God and resist the devil. 


3 things that you are:

Spirit, soul, body.


4 things that you do:

Social, financial, emotional and sexual.


Submit those 7 things to God and resist the devil and he will have no place in you.


Eccl 10:1 NKJV

Dead flies putrefy the perfumer's ointment, and cause it to give off a foul odor;  So does a little folly to one respected for wisdom and honor.


2 Cor 10:3-6  NKJV

For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal but mighty in God for pulling down strongholds, casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ, and being ready to punish all disobedience when your obedience is fulfilled.


Pull down the stronghold in your life.  You can't pull down a stronghold over a town until you get the stronghold pulled down over your life. 


This lion is a toothless lion.  All he's got is a roar.  God has already taken his teeth away.  When you are running from this false lion, you are not letting the real lion rule over your life.  The lie is the thing that gets into your soul.  Not into your spirit, in your body, but your soul.  I have no trouble at all casting that evil spirit out of anybody. There is no choice, argument no debate.  When they are there, I cast them out and that is it.  I see more healings in the flesh than I see in the soul, because I can't cast out what is in your soul. 


What you've got to do is lock your lion up in here.  It is what's in your soul tonight.  Lock your lion and never let him out again.  He'll really start to roarin' in the first few days you lock him up.  Don't let him out.  After 3 or 4 weeks he'll begin to stink.  Don't let him out.  After a while you won't hear anything.  Don't open it to look.  These thoughts I am talking about, in your mind they've got to deteriorate.  And never open the door again.  These thoughts that come at you, lock em' in there.  But never let them out again.


Pull down your strong man.  Everyone has a strong man over you.  Pull  that down, bring that into submission of Christ.  And your soul will become profitable. 



What I am about to tell you now is scientific.  A man that studies this is a scientist, gave this to me.  If you've got a stronghold over your life, that you can't break.  It is a negative porthole, a counter clockwise porthole.  You begin to do warfare with that thing for 21 days, it begins to break apart.  Why do you think the fast was so strong like in Daniel?  A fast that anything you give to the Lord for 21 days, it begins to break that porthole down.  As you put this in here and start agreeing with His Word, it opens up a clockwise porthole.  And within 21 days you will be begin to hear from this clockwise porthole.  The longer you feed that clockwise porthole, the bigger it gets. 


This is the law book and this law book is telling you what you can do, and what you can't do.  There is a lot more in there telling you what you can do than what you can't do.  And you already know what you can't do.  So don't feed that lie.  You've got to lock up your own lion as I have got to lock up mine.  ...You know when your thoughts are going wrong.  Your water pipes in your mind have got plugged in your mind.  It's time begin to unplug your water pipes.  Break the hold in your thoughts over you.  ...


There are many times I have prayed for a lot of people and nothing happened.  Satanists are no problem, there is total power.  But it is really hard with new age, because there is soul power.  You cant break that out, its got to be locked out, and a lot of times its got to be "taught" out. 


Now build your own porthole.  Build it according to the written Word.  Obey the logos.  And don't let the negative porthole reign over your life any more. 


It's called windows and doors in about 300 verses in the OT the NT, its called windows, doors and portholes 28 times in the NT.  Don't let the I am not do (s) reign over your life anymore..."
