Friday Night in Richmond

Well . . . (a true Southerner could make about eight syllables out of that), it is a whole new ball game at the end of two days of testing.

We have been doing tests in California for a couple of months now, but have been plagued by results that were not in accordance with what the “authorities” said was right for an EEG.

On the one hand, I acknowledged our ignorance and learning curve and was keenly aware that we were having equipment problems.  On the other hand there was this nagging thought that we should not be as concerned about what “they” did because we were trying to do something different with this equipment.

Still, we kept on battling, trying to get top quality results, which caused us to upgrade our equipment and methodology several ways.

However, the last two days have been very revealing.

Let’s talk through the technology.  The beauty of an EEG is that there is no penetration of the body.  No needles go in, no magnetic fields bombard you and no chemicals are placed in your blood stream.  So from that side, it is wonderful.

However, the downside is that you are dealing with very small electrical currents.  As I understand the technology, you take the tiny bit of electricity that your brain generates when it is thinking and transmit it through the bone of your skull, to the skin.

Once it is on the skin, we have to pick it up with the gel that is on the skin, transmit it through that to the gold electrode, from there it is transmitted to the EEG machine, which is 8 feet away, and then transmitted again to the computer, where it is converted into electrical images on the screen.

That really is a huge task for the small currents we are dealing with.

The weak link is getting it from the skin to the electrode.  Basically we use a dap of paste to stick the electrode to the scalp, then squirt some highly conductive gel into the space between the electrode and the skull, but the hair gets in the way, lifts the electrode above the skin, etc.

So the process of getting the electrodes in the right places and getting current running through them is a challenge.

We have a chart on the computer that tells us visually how we are doing with the process.  Ideally we will have less than five ohms of impedance from each of the 19 connection points (plus the ground).  Often we spend fifteen minutes messing with some recalcitrant connections trying to get good readings.

ANYWAY, today we had a situation where we simply could not get a good reading.  Everything was in the eight to 20 ohms range which is just not acceptable.  I felt in my spirit that we were to go ahead anyway.  There was absolutely no justification for going ahead because the test would be invalid with bad connections, but I listened to my spirit and went with it.

Part way through the session, we ran into a demonic barrier, and God told me to engage the demon and resolve it.  So we did the Sapphire thing and changed our game plan on the fly.

Get the picture.  Megan and Loretta were sitting on the far side of the room from me looking at the EEG on the computer screen.

I was sitting where I could see the client, and I could see over the client’s shoulder to watch the faces of the gals, but I couldn’t see the screen.  However, I did have discernment of what was going on in the spirit realm.

I engaged the demon, kicked out one, ran into a bigger problem, had to deal with some legal issues that were new to me, kicked out that one, and then returned to the spirit work we were doing and it flowed really well.

While I was doing legal work and contesting the ground the demon is claiming, I was also watching their faces which were remarkably eloquent in expressing shock and awe.

The short version is, we recorded a live (unpremeditated) deliverance on an EEG!  This was a first.  We could see the spirit in action, the demon blocking it, the conflict, the demon leaving and the spirit able to step into the picture and do what it had been sent to do.

By itself, that was historic.

BUT THEN, Loretta got a Holy Spirit elbow in the ribs, and she left the EEG running while switching to another screen that allowed her to see the impedance of each electrode, and THEY WERE ALL EXCELLENT.

In other words, normally as we go through an EEG, if anything the quality of the connections erodes because of movement.  Just someone wrinkling their brow in thought could cause Fp1 or Fp2 to work a little bit loose, causing a worse connection, not better.

Here, with no maintenance from me, the impedance had gone from very high (bad) to very low (good).  Translation:  the demonic had caused the natural science to be corrupted so that we got suboptimal data originally, and when the critters were evicted, the electronic readings were vastly different — correct in other words.

That revelation released a cascade of insight.  On certain people over the last few months, we have had very unstable readings.  On the computer screen, there is a model of the head with the wires, and we can see every electrode and can tell from the color what the impedance is.

In an typical weird situation, I would have a good set up for the entire head except for T5 and C4.  I would add more gel to those two, and wiggle them a bit.  Loretta would report that they were fine now, but suddenly two others that were fine a minute ago were dismal.  So I would go work on them.  And so it would go with unstable connections.

We now believe it may well be critters doing that.  Next time we have rolling outages in the brain electrical pattern, I will do something along the lines of warfare, not adding more gel, and see what happens.

And THEN, at dinner I suddenly connected another dot.  There are two very challenging electrodes:  Cz and the ground.  Cz should be the best one in the system, the easiest to get solid and tight.  It is essentially smack dab at the top of your head, dead center.

We can easily part the hair there, it generally lies very well, and it is easy to reach.  The electrode lies flat on the top of the skull and has minimal reason to be dislodged.  Yet, in half the people, it was a consistent miscreant.  No matter how carefully we cleaned the surface, abraded it, set the electrode, a couple of minutes later, it would have high impedance again.

I realized that this is what the Hindus call their main “Chakra point” which means it is a spiritually receptive dynamic in our body that can easily be defiled, probably by much more than Hindu junk.  Again, a spiritual problem needs a spiritual solution.

Let me tell you, the next time Cz gives me any lip, it is going to get fire first, not more gel!

Then there was someone else who was giving a bad reading around electrodes O1 and O2. Megan looked at the aberrant wave patterns and told me confidently that it was “muscle tension” which is what she had been taught by “the people who know.”

It is a recognizable pattern in EEGs which they have seen a lot, and know what it is.

Normally you deal with it as muscle tension.  If it is around the temple, you have people stretch their jaw and make faces to loosen it up.  Otherwise, a short massage does it.

However, I was highly skeptical about this one at O1 and O2 because I know that the most common form of discernment in people is low grade pain at C1 and C2 vertebrae, and our O1 and O2 electrodes were just above that.

So I experimented.  Instead of massaging the scalp there to make the “muscle tension” go away,  commanded the demons to stop reacting and be still.  (I did not have permission from the Lord to do an eviction).

I felt the demons react to my command and the resistance in the spirit realm got stronger as they apparently tried to decide whether to defy me or subside.  The decision was made to subside.

The girls watched all that on the screen.  The “muscle tension” exploded into wildness for a bit, then everything smoothed out and there was normalcy shortly thereafter.

That was quite encouraging in the immediate moment because we could go ahead with the process, but it raised a huge issue.  The metric Megan has been taught was developed by people who only know body and soul.  We knew they didn’t understand the spirit so we expected (and have gotten) readings that were unique to the spirit.

What we did not think through is that there have surely been hundreds of thousands of EEGs which included demonic agitation at some level or another, and those technologists and the doctors reading the reports don’t know what to do with that.

The operative work is “artifacts.”  That is a squiggle on the EEG that “they” don’t like, so they deem it erroneous or irrelevant.  For example, every time someone blinks their eye, it shows up as muscle movement on the screen.  It is clearly not indicative of the thoughts or functions of the brain, so those “artifacts” have to be weeded out before the data is evaluated.  In fact, there is software that will automatically edit out many of those “artifacts” for you.

However, what do we do about the artifacts that are not “bad” data?  And how do we learn to read an EEG and say this is body, this is soul, this is spirit and this is demon?  And within the realm of the spirit, what constitutes good activity by our spirit, and what is a brain wave that is a marker for unhealthy spiritual reactions?

We have a whole new world of learning before we know what we want to keep and what we want to throw out and why.

Loretta was overwhelmed at the immensity of it all since she could see the implications of our being able to interpret the data, so she turned to Megan and said, “You really need to go to school to learn how to read these things well!”

To which that wise woman responded, “And where will I go to be taught how to recognize a demonic manifestation in an EEG?”


If that wasn’t enough, we had another point of drama this week as one of our volunteers turned out to be D.I.D. and they switched from one part to another in the middle of a session.  It has a very pronounce and (forever in the future) recognizable pattern — another “artifact” that needs to be seen through a different set of eyes.

In addition to the learning curve for us, we did get a lot of really valuable data and at least half the people left changed, as God met them at one point or another.

The validation of their spirit was immense for some.  For others there was a point of truth that came out in the exercises.

What was most exciting for us was the set which deals with the spirit going to the seat of dominion and seeking to bring some things in the body into right alignment.

For several of the people in this group, that was a profoundly significant exercise.  It was fascinating for the girls to watch the 19 different “feeds” on the screen start out desynchronized and then move into a solid harmonized pattern.

By the time we finish the initial round of data acquisition, ending with the sessions in Texas in June, we will have a treasure chest of extraordinary value.  Then will come the hard work of meticulously going through the data, looking for patterns, interpreting the data and developing the protocols so we can be proactive in helping the human spirit be everything God intended.

It bodes well to be a wild ride.

On another front, in terms of Richmond, there has been a continued freeing up of the atmosphere as your prayers have cumulatively impacted our hotel room.  However, I have been a bit disappointed over the response to the issue of the redemptive gift of the city.

Regardless of what I wrote, people have defaulted to the bad not the good.  So let me raise the volume and say it more loudly.  THE CIVIL WAR IS ONLY A FOOTNOTE ON THE STORY.

Yes it happened, and yes there was junk before and after, but that is not the whole story.  Those locally who I have talked to, as well as many who commented on the blog and some who have written e-mails, tend to go there and get stuck there with what went wrong.

God was here first.  God placed a treasure in the land that is far bigger than the blip on the screen of the slavery issue and the war.  We need to look in terms of millennia, not a few decades.

While there is certainly room to deal with sin in the history of the land, there are also those moments when God releases treasure from the land even before the junk has been resolved.

I have not seen anything yet that points to a shift in that area, but there is still plenty of time out ahead if God chooses to release the treasure to us in some form.

For now, I am going to bed.  We have a seminar on Saturday and I am looking forward to sharing this teaching.

    If the civil war is but a footnote on the city perhaps the First of Nations that lived there can be considered the the God’s preface and open chapter on the land. I found it interesting that one of the qoutes above was Give me liberity of give me death and the Powhatan (English name for the tribes) or Virginia Algonquians (is a more general linguistic/anthropological term used to refer to not only the small Algonquin tribe but dozens of distinct Native American tribes who speak languages that are related to each other.) did die fighting for the freedom of their land. . This was the best beginning site I found for information on the Powhatan People.
    (while I am not a big Wiki fan there can be good info there) The last successful chief gathered and created a coalition of tribes numbering 30 (Ruler State). I have not had time to verify this yet but…”The competing cultures of the Powhatan and English settlers were united temporarily through the marriage of Pocahontas and John Rolfe. Their son Thomas Rolfe was the ancestor of many Virginians; thus, many of the First Families of Virginia have both English and Virginia Indian ancestry.”
    This is an interesting cultural system as “Chiefs inherited their positions of power through the female side of the family. – ” making this a matriarchal at some level.
    Chief Powhatan inherited control (from his mother rather than his father, in accord with his cultural tradition) of just four tribes. He conquered another 30 and exerted control over many Algonquian-speaking Native Americans in Virginia when the Godspeed, Discovery, and Susan Constant sailed between the capes at the mouth of the Chesapeake Bay. (
    Powhatan (pou’ətăn`), d. 1618, Native North American chief of the Powhatan tribe in Virginia, whose personal name was Wahunsonacock. He greatly extended the dominion of the Powhatan Confederacy and after the marriage (1614) of his daughter Pocahontas
    to John Rolfe kept peace with the English colonists. The Columbia Electronic Encyclopedia®

    Powhatan (died April 1618, Virginia) American Indian leader, father of Pocahontas. At the peak of his power, he ruled the 13,000 to 34,000 people of the Powhatan empire. He initially acted ambivalently toward the English settlement at Jamestown, Va., and sometimes permitted attacks against the colonists. After Pocahontas married an English settler in 1614, however, Powhatan maintained peaceful relations with the colonists until the end of his life. (

    The true Pocahontas story has a sad ending. In 1612, at the age of 17, Pocahontas was treacherously taken prisoner by the English while she was on a social visit, and was held hostage at Jamestown for over a year.

    During her captivity, a 28-year-old widower named John Rolfe took a “special interest” in the attractive young prisoner. As a condition of her release, she agreed to marry Rolfe, who the world can thank for commercializing tobacco. Thus, in April 1614, Matoaka, also known as “Pocahontas”, daughter of Chief Powhatan, became “Rebecca Rolfe”. Shortly after, they had a son, whom they named Thomas Rolfe. The descendants of Pocahontas and John Rolfe were known as the “Red Rolfes.” –

    Powhatan History – In the words of the late Chief Roy Crazy Horse…
    We are the native natural people of this land, descendants of an ancient confederation that at one time included over thirty nations. Our people were placed here by the Creator, and have maintained an unbroken history of thousands of years of settlement along the coastal areas of the mid-Atlantic. Although most of our lands are now occupied by others, many of the nation of the original Powhatan Confederacy still survive. The oldest treaty written in this land is between the Powhatan Nations in the year 1646.(broken as were all of them with the First Nation People – Scott Cross)

    Since the time we met the Europeans in the 1500’s, our history has been characterized as a struggle to survive war, disease, prejudice, and cultural disintegration. Foreign disease alone probably accounted for halving the Powhatan population by the end of the 17th century. Many of the survivors of those early epidemics were largely decimated by war and starvation. Yet, against all odds, we the Renape (human beings) have survived. Essentially the term Renape refers to us as an ethnic group, a people speaking a common language. However, we were not all united in one Nation. Our people governed themselves freely and harmoniously as independent republics, which sometimes came together in alliances or confederations, such as the Powhatan Confederacy. Thus Powhatan refers to our political identity, while Renape refers to our ethnic/language identity. –

    All I can say is WOW, Arthur. My head is reeling with the spiritual upheaval in our Land, and it’s again hard for me to dial down and filter the noise and data, but reading of your work brings me into focus. Thank you.

  3. Lisa says:

    Hi Arthur – I believe Richmond is Exhorter and that it is on a sound portal. Do you want me to elaborate? Lisa

      • Lisa says:

        Hi Arthur – here’s a ‘notes format’ run through of my take on it. Lisa

        * Richmond
        Male Exhorter city – High profile, flashy, demands to be heard, likes to control things / uniting diversity in a messy clash of cultures / at the cross roads of history, culture and transportation – ALWAYS / ALL about the presentation & has a LOT to say about / MUST be noticed and is FIRST in many things to do so / likes to ‘ANNEX’ things [be the mouthpiece for the group] / FIGHTS for its right to be heard / has HIGHLY strategic grasp on land, air, road & water ways with international reach.

        * Some details gleaned from the web:
        – it’s tourism moto: a city that’s Easy to Love
        – “Brave the gorgeous yet intense James River, which distinguishes the Richmond Region as the ONLY urban setting with Class IV rapids.”
        – Richmond is an independent city and not part of any county. An independent city or independent town is a city or town that does not form part of another general-purpose local government entity (such as a county). There are 42 independent cities in the United States, WITH 39 OF THESE in Virginia (in Virginia, cities are separate from counties even if they function as county seats). The three others are Baltimore, Maryland; St. Louis, Missouri; and Carson City, Nevada.
        – Richmond is the CENTER of the Richmond Metropolitan Statistical Area (MSA)
        – During the Revolutionary War period, SEVERAL NOTABLE events occurred in the city, including Patrick Henry’s “GIVE ME LIBERTY OR GIVE ME DEATH” speech in 1775 at St. John’s Church, and the passage of the Virginia Statute for RELIGIOUS FREEDOM written by Thomas Jefferson.
        – During the American Civil War, Richmond served as the CAPITAL of the Confederate States of America [moved from its original seat once Richmond joined].
        – The STRATEGIC LOCATION of the Tredegar Iron Works was one of the primary factors in the decision to make Richmond the Capital of the Confederacy. From this arsenal came the 723 tons of armor plating that covered the CSS Virginia, the WORLD’S FIRST ironclad used in war, as well as much of the Confederates’ heavy ordnance machinery
        – Not only was Richmond the seat of political power for the Confederacy, it served as a vital source of munitions, armament, weapons, supplies, and manpower for the Confederate States Army and as such would have been defended at all costs regardless of its political status.
        – in the mid 17th century, the Virginia Colony was nicknamed “The Old DOMINION”
        – The Colony of Virginia (also known frequently as the Virginia Colony, the Province of Virginia, and occasionally as the DOMINION and Colony of Virginia)
        – Initially, the term “Virginia” was applied to the ENTIRE eastern coast of North America from the 34th parallel (near Cape Fear) north to the 48th parallel, including the shorelines of Acadia and a large portion of inland Canada.
        – Richmond emerged from the smoldering rubble of the Civil War as an ECONOMIC POWERHOUSE, with iron front buildings and massive brick factories.Canal traffic peaked in the 1860s and slowly gave way to railroads, allowing Richmond to become A MAJOR RAILROADS CROSSROADS, eventually including the site of the WORLD’S FIRST triple railroad crossing
        – The city entered the 20th century with one of the WORLD’S FIRST successful ELECTRIC streetcar systems, as well as a NATIONAL HUB of AFRICAN-AMERICAN commerce and culture, the Jackson Ward neighborhood.
        – Richmond is LOCATED AT THE FALL LINE of the James River [the highest navigable point of the James River – as a frontier defence – under English settlement the community there grew into a bustling trading post for furs, hides, and tobacco].
        – the city was named “Richmond” after the English town of Richmond near (and now part of) London, because the view of the James River was strikingly similar to the view of the River Thames from Richmond Hill in England [e.g. VERY beautiful, designed to be SEEN and NOTICED – all about the PRESENTATION]
        – The site had been an important village of the Powhatan Confederacy and is where the competing cultures of the Powhatan and English settlers were UNITED temporarily through the marriage of Pocahontas (daughter of the Chief of the Powhatan Confederacy: head of a network of tributary tribal nations in the Tidewater region of Virginia) and John Rolfe. Their son Thomas Rolfe was the ancestor of many Virginians; thus, many of the First Families of Virginia have both English and Virginia Indian ancestry, as well as First Ladies Edith Wilson and Nancy Reagan, and astronomer Percival Lowell.
        – It is LOCATED at the INTERSECTIONS of Interstate 95 and Interstate 64, and ENCIRCLED by Interstate 295 and Virginia State Route 288.
        – By the beginning of the twentieth century, the city’s population had reached 85,050 in 5 square miles (13 km2), making it the MOST DENSELY POPULATED city in the Southern United States.[22] Freed slaves and their descendants created a THRIVING AFRICAN-AMERICAN business community, and the city’s historic Jackson Ward became known as the “WALL STREET OF BLACK AMERICA.”
        – the FIRST television station in Richmond, was the FIRST television station south of Washington, D.C.
        – A multi-million dollar flood wall was completed in 1995, in order to protect low-lying areas of city from the oft-rising waters of the James River. As a result the River District businesses GREW RAPIDLY, and today the area is home to much of Richmond’s entertainment, dining and nightlife activity, bolstered by the creation of a Canal Walk along the city’s former industrial canals
        – The city is home to both the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit, one of 13 United States courts of appeals [The Fourth is the most efficient circuit, taking an average of just over seven months to resolve each appeal. – The Fourth Circuit is considered an EXTREMELY COLLEGIAL court. By tradition, the Judges of the Fourth Circuit come down from the bench following each oral argument to GREET the lawyers.], and the Federal Reserve Bank of Richmond [designed by Minoru Yamasaki who also designed the World Trade Center twin towers; it’s the second-largest Federal Reserve Bank by assets held after the Federal Reserve Bank of New York as of November 2009], one of 12 Federal Reserve Banks.
        – On April 18, 1780, the state capital was moved from the colonial capital of Williamsburg TO Richmond, to provide a more centralized location for Virginia’s increasing westerly population, as well as to isolate the capital from British attack
        – In 1970, Richmond’s BORDERS EXPANDED by an additional 27 square miles (70 km2) on the south. After several years of court cases in which Chesterfield County fought annexation, more than 47,000 people who once were Chesterfield County residents found themselves within the city’s perimeters on January 1, 1970.
        – March 20, 2012 – The Department of Public Works Transportation Engineering Division is set to begin the first phase of an approximately $21 million federally funded project to upgrade the City’s outdated traffic signal system. The new state-of-the-art system will CONNECT the City’s approximately 500 signalized intersections and flashers to the Traffic Operations Center in City Hall.

    Arthur, have you considered when a person is baptized by the hand –instead of immersed as in dipped, the point of the top of the head is usually where it is touched. Is this only a manifestation of a man/demonic connection with religion that is a sticking point so to speak. See Revelation’s hand connection

  5. Deborah says:

    Thank You, Thank You, Lord God Almighty for these breakthroughs. Thank you, Arthur, Megan, and Loretta for your trailblazing!!! And, thank you, Arthur for consistently following the lead of the Holy Spirit through your spirit. I pray that God’s Kingdom will come at every turn today and that His will be done in Richmond, VA today like it is being done in heaven. Make a way, O God, make a way today where there is no way.

  6. fountshults says:

    This is absolutely ground-breaking. Thanks Arthur for your contribution to the field.

  7. Pat says:

    It just keeps getting better and better. Can’t wait for you to come to the Bay Area!! Any idea when that will be?
