The Deborah Anointing

Weak leadership, a nation turning away from God, and conflict in the Middle East. Sound familiar?! Join us as we kick off an explosive 💥 new series in the book of Judges!




The Deborah Anointing

Judges 21:25 “Everyone did what was right in his own eyes.”

“my truth”; “works for me”; “no one can judge me”; “I feel”; “I’m a good person” 

“people have a good heart”; “you need to be true to yourself”; 

No one did what was right in God’s eyes 

=Open borders, terrorists in country, weak leadership, gov’t corrupt, civil unrest, sexual anarchy, 

culture demonic, nation in freefall, apostate/progressive church part of problem 

=3000 years ago & 2024 

=Impulsive, selfish, pleasure, comfort, ingratitude

  • Only 2X 300 years people ask God for His will, 1st & last chapter Judges

Judges 1:1After the death of Joshua, the people of Israel inquired of the Lord…

Judges 20:18 The people of Israel arose and went up to Bethel and inquired of God…

  • ?300 years 

Judge 2:11-15; 3:7–8, 3:12-14; 4:1-3; 6:1; 10:6-8; 13:1…the people…did what was evil in the sight of the LORD and served the Baals….they abandoned the LORD…They went after other gods…they provoked the LORD to anger. They abandoned the LORD and served the Baals and the Ashtaroth. So the anger of the LORD was kindled…and he gave them over to plunderers, who plundered them. And he sold them into the hand of their surrounding enemies…the hand of the LORD was against them for harm…they were in terrible distress…the people…did what was evil in the sight of the Lord. They forgot the Lord their God and served the Baals and the Asheroth….the anger of the Lord was kindled…and he sold them into the hand…[of the] king of Mesopotamia [for]…eight years….the people of Israel again did what was evil in the sight of the Lord, and the Lord strengthened…the king of Moab…because they had done what was evil in the sight of the Lord….and went and defeated Israel….And the people…served…the king of Moab eighteen years….And the people of Israel again did what was evil in the sight of the Lord…And the Lord sold them into the hand of Jabin king of Canaan…and he oppressed the people…cruelly for twenty years…The people…did what was evil in the sight of the Lord, and the Lord gave them into the hand of Midian seven years…The people…again did what was evil in the sight of the Lord and served the Baals and the Ashtaroth, the gods of Syria…And they forsook the Lord and did not serve him. So the anger of the Lord was kindled…and he sold them into the hand of the Philistines and into the hand of the Ammonites, and they crushed and oppressed the people of Israel…For eighteen years they oppressed all the people…And the people…again did what was evil in the sight of the Lord, so the Lord gave them into the hand of the Philistines for forty years.

=social justice warriors blaming everyone/everything

1.Degrees at college in victimhood                2.Rainbow flags on chariots 

3.Canaanite lives matter                                             4.Disagree? White Hebrew Nationalist 

NOT victims. VILLIANS. Judges 21:25 “Everyone did what was right in his own eyes.”

History (seen realm) vs Prophetic History (seen & unseen realms) 

Background = spiritual war, started Heaven (Rev 12:7-9) PEOPLE NOT DEMONS SAVED

  • Spiritual Demons work thru Physical objects
  • Demons = “god” or “the gods” = 24X verses Judges “Elohim” 
  • Holy Spirit vs unholy spirits. God creates, Satan counterfeits 

-God has highest ranking angels known by name (Michael & Gabriel vs Baal & Asherah)

-Not male/female but appear. Baal (male) Asherah (female) 

  • People – BINARY: made by God male/female
  • Demons – NONBINARY: made by God w/o sex & gender 
    Demons want us to be like them – gender fluid on a spectrum 

Baal (Deut 7&12 = displace destroy) 

1.    “Baal” – Military – highest rank Canaanite demon = “master”, “Lord”, “owner” -named 1st

2.    “Baals” – other demons under Baal (family name or last name) 

3.    “Baal ______[location] hermon, berity, tamar 

Prosperity & Fertility – $ growth = comfort/pleasure SUCCESS

Israel’s Golden Calf was a Bull or Baal Calf 

Bull Market: I need an image of the Wall Street bull like this

Asherah [also spelled Ashtaroth, Asheroth in Judges, & Ishtar Venus]

“Queen of the demons” =pleasure, seduction, sex

Baals lover & partner in crime 

Goddess Of

1).Tavern/alcohol – intoxication & seduction  (legalized drugs = addiction)

2).Prostitution – from private to public,                SIN – from sick to sacred

-Among oldest writings in history are “sacred hymns” to Asherah the “prostitute” 

Social Media influencers 

3).Transgenderism – [also called Venus] – “morning star” & “evening star” 

– spectrum from “morning to evening” & “love to war” = NONBINARY EFFEMINATE 

Ancient Mesopotamian Tablet – “When I [Asherah] sit in the alehouse, I am a woman, and I am an exuberant young man.”

4).Pornography – pushing boundaries, moving lines until all lines erased 

-Word “erotic” means desire and comes from “eros” Greek demon/god of sexual desire. -Mythology – Eros was born of Aphrodite. Aphrodite is Greek for Asherah. Erotica & the porn industry was created & is lead by a demon named eros working under Asherah. 

Ancient lewd porn, jewelry= “goddess”  – mother porn industry/”hymns” of worship  

=New Days. Old Demons

  1. Worship Baal/$ & Asherah/sex = kill child to improve career 
  2. Child Sacrifice – counterfeit – God gave His Son, does not take our child 

-Poles on hills – bar, concert venue, strip club, brothel, abortion clinic

1. Give child to pagan priest (doctor) – medical abortion 

2. Body broken or burned “passed through the fire” – chemical abortion 

Ancient Philosopher Plutarch “the whole area before the statue [of Molech the Ammonite demon-god mentioned 26 times in Judges] was filled with loud noises of flutes and drums so that the cries of the wailing should not reach the ears of the people.”

worship event child sacrifice = abortion rallies 

2023 Global Causes of Death 

1+ million suicide deaths 

1.3 million traffic accident deaths

1.6 million HIV/AIDS deaths 

4.9 million smoking deaths 

8.2 million cancer deaths 

12.9 infectious disease deaths

TOTAL: 29.9 million deaths 

44.6 abortion deaths (leading cause of death globally)

God’s Servant: Deborah

1. Prophetess: Judges 4:4 Deborah, a prophetess…

A). Listen         B). Speak/Write = Demonic days need prophetic people 

2. Judge: Judges 4:4-5 Deborah…was judging Israel… and the people of Israel came up to her for judgment.

3. Military strategist: Judges 4:14-15 Deborah said …“Up! For this is the day in which the LORD has given Sisera into your hand. Does not the LORD go out before you?”…And the LORD routed Sisera and all his chariots and all his army…

4. Worship leader: Judges 5:1,3 Then sang Deborah… to the LORD I will sing;  I will make melody to the LORD

  • US – difference political, military, religious, legal leaders 
  • Deborah NOT KING/PRIEST:  Male descendants of Aaron only (STUDY GUIDE)

Supreme Court?         Prez Cabinet?             Governor?                   Prez?               Worship?

Judges & Anointing (Counterfeit – Spirit Filled vs Demonized) 

HS flow on you, in you, through you in power = serve God & bless others 

Symbol – oil that flows down – leads to a “flow” in the Spirit 

Sovereign Anointing– Cannot turn flow on/off = who/when/why = flows 

  • -Bypasses intellect (Moody failed Bible coll entrance, took cast off boys, 1 sermon had 3 words ?misspelled, reached to 130k 1 day ) 
  • Bypasses education (Spurgeon pastor 19, 100k @ funeral ) 

1.    Christ – means “anointed one”; Lk. 4:18 “the Spirit is upon me…he has anointed me”

2.    Churches 

  • Different churches have different anointings 
  • Many churches are living off yesterdays anointing 
  • Anointed churches have a sense of hope, expectancy, power = new wineskins 

Band Up 

3.    Christians 

  • Anointed people can sense the presence of anointing 
  • Don’t covet their anointing. Be content w/your anointing 
  • Anointing brings opposition – counterfeits, spiritual warfare 
  • You cannot lose your salvation, but you can lose your anointing

My Testimony – reputation, anointing, Father’s hand 

Judges 4:3 the people…cried out to the Lord for help…
