Jeremiah 32:35 (NKJV)
35 And they built the high places of Baal which are in the Valley of the Son of Hinnom, to cause their sons and their daughters to pass through the fire to Molech, which I did not command them, nor did it come into My mind that they should do this abomination, to cause Judah to sin.’
In October 2015 I had a dream where God told me very specifically to fast for 21 days. I only achieved that by the Spirit because I have never been a good faster, and have never fasted that disciplined since then. So really, God carried me and strengthened me during those days. During that fast, God cleaned my house. So many things came out, it was amazing. I praise God today still for the deliverance and freedom I received during that time.
During that fasting period I received a vision. God showed me a room with four doors. In front of three doors stood three demons. The fourth demon was behind a closed door. The first two demons I knew what their function was but the third one I did not. It was a huge demon with the body of a man but the head of a bull i.e he was a Minotaur.
When God wants to reveal something he will really put an effort into opening your eyes about sin in your life. In my waking life, I started seeing the picture of a cow everywhere. Once, a friend was praying for me and she saw a picture of a cow, although I hadn’t shared my vision with her. At the library, my son chose to take out a book with a cow on the front page. He also started playing a maze game a lot on his kiddies laptop. Why did this scare me? Well, when I started researching Minotaur on the internet, what came up a lot was the Greek myth of the Minotaur who was locked up in a maze. According to the myth, youth and young maidens were sent at fixed times to be fed to the Minotaur in the labyrinth (every 9 years according to some sources). But of course I was looking for something from the Bible. If you type in Minotaur, Demon, Bible, one of the results you will find is Moloch. Moloch is a word I had come across before when I was reading the Old Testament, so I decided to do more research about him. Here is a good summary about who Moloch is from Encyclopedia Britannica (https://www.britannica.com/topic/Moloch-ancient-god).
“Moloch, also spelled Molech, a Canaanite deity associated in biblical sources with the practice of child sacrifice. The name derives from combining the consonants of the Hebrew melech (“king”) with the vowels of boshet (“shame”), the latter often being used in the Old Testament as a variant name for the popular god Baal (“Lord”).
In the Hebrew Bible, Moloch is presented as a foreign deity who was at times illegitimately given a place in Israel’s worship as a result of the syncretistic policies of certain apostate kings. The laws given to Moses by God expressly forbade the Jews to do what was done in Egypt or in Canaan. “You shall not give any of your children to devote them by fire to Moloch, and so profane the name of your God” (Leviticus 18:21). Yet kings such as Ahaz (2 Kings 16:3) and Manasseh (2 Kings 21:6), having been influenced by the Assyrians, are reported to have worshipped Moloch at the hilled site of Topheth, outside the walls of Jerusalem. This site flourished under Manasseh’s son King Amon but was destroyed during the reign of Josiah, the reformer. “And he defiled Topheth, which is in the valley of the sons of Hinnom, that no one might burn his son or his daughter as an offering to Moloch” (2 Kings 23:10).”
Also, this is what Moloch apparently looked liked:
So yeah, that pretty much looked like the demon I had seen in my vision. The first picture is more correct though in that Moloch’s arms were outstretched and not right upright like this picture. The babies would be laid on his hands, and because they were made of metal, they were incredibly hot from the fire which was burning in Moloch’s stomach. As the babies burned from the heat, they would scream in pain. Drums and trumpets would be played loudly to drown out the screaming. The place of sacrifice was on a hill outside the city of Jerusalem, but the sound of the drums could be heard all the way in Jerusalem.
I found many Christian articles linking Moloch and abortion. I have included two below, one from an apologetics point of view. Do your own research, I am writing about my personal story and vision.
Now although I had repented and sought forgiveness for the sin of abortion, God was showing me that I still needed deliverance. When we sin, we open up doorways for the enemy to come in and set up house in our lives. Being involved in the occult, generational curses, covenants, traumas are also doorways that allow demons to come into your life. Here is an excerpt about sin being a doorway for demons
( full article here Doorways for demons )
Sin is the most obvious demonic doorway. This does not mean that a demon enters every time a person sins. It does mean that it is possible for a demon to enter through sin. I know two guys that played with a Ouija board. One walked away unchanged, the other walked away with a new demon. Why didn’t they both walk away with demons? I don’t know, maybe there was only one demon around at the moment, or maybe the one person was more susceptible than the other due to other sin or conditions in his life. In either case play it safe, stay away from sin! And what constitutes sin just might surprise you. Just to name a few, there are demons of gossip, fear, manipulation, control, anger and doubt. If a person operates with gossip in his life then he opens himself up to a demon of gossip. If he has excessive anger then he opens himself up to a demon of anger. If he uses pornography then a demon of lust can enter it.
If he operates with the sin of fear in his life then he opens himself up to a demon of fear. Once the demon of fear enters, his fear becomes worse and it will have a strong hold on him. Hence the term stronghold as used in the Bible. In my demonic encounters in the deliverance ministry it seems the most popular demon is Fear. I have encountered Fear in probably 95% of all cases. Jesus taught time after time to not be afraid. Now, if Jesus said to not do something then we shouldn’t do it. If we do, then we are disobeying what he said and that would be considered sin. A fearful event that leads you into an act of fear opens the door to a demon of fear. Horror movies open up all kinds of doors to demonic Fear, especially in children.”
The Holy Spirit guided me and I was able to be delivered from this demon. If it wasn’t for God who showed me in a vision what I still had to get rid of, I would be carrying this demon around even now. You NEED to get rid of this demon, he never gets full, he will destroy and consume your life, long after the sin was committed.”
I am just sharing my story and I appeal to all women who have committed this sin, ask God to show you through the Holy Spirit whether you need a deliverance from the demon Moloch/Baal. For all Christians, pray to God to reveal to you whether you have undealt-with sin in your life, whether you have open doorways and whether you need a deliverance. This is soooooo important. God will show you the truth and the truth will set you free. Humble yourself, seek revelation and Jesus will set you free.
