SID: Hello, Sid Roth your investigative reporter of the Supernatural here with Kris Vallotton. And this is unbelievable. He just gets one thought and he gets so much fear inside of him that he shakes for three and a half years. He thinks the grass is greener, he goes to another city, he’s only sleeping one hour a night; he’s got a wonderful wife, a wonderful child. Then bizarre thoughts start going through his mind, he’s molesting children, he’s molesting his children, he’s molesting his wife. These thoughts are going through his mind. He can’t stop this. He doesn’t want to go to a psychiatrist because he’s seen what happened to people that go to a psychiatrists. He doesn’t believe that he could possibly have a demon. His theology said a Christian can’t have a demon. So you must have pretty much… did you think about suicide?
KRIS: Oh, I was thinking about everything. I should make it clear that I never did molest my children or molest my wife. Those thoughts were happening in me. I mean it’s like…
SID: You were fighting, I guess?
KRIS: I was fighting the thoughts the whole time. Never did any of that stuff; never did anything that the thoughts provoked me to do. But I was just terrified all the time. And then we get to Weaverville, it increases instead of gets better. Demonic spirits start to visit me. When I say demonic spirits Sid, I’m not talking about something I’m imagining now. Now I’m not talking about visions. I’m talking about they literally would come in my room, I’d see them with my eyes, the lights would go on and off, electricity would go off in our house, pictures would fall off the wall.
SID: Did your wife witness this sort of thing?
KRIS: Some of the things she witnessed herself.
KRIS: It was completely insane.
SID: You were living a horrible life.
KRIS: I was living a horrible life and I just wanted to die. I didn’t want to kill myself but I just wanted to die.
SID: Tell me about this radio station you supernaturally found.
KRIS: Yeah. You know I’m living up in the woods in Lewiston, California. It’s a community of 900 people, and like I said we’re an hour from society. Can’t sleep at night so oftentimes I’d get up and turn the radio on. Well, all we’d get up there is static so I’m listen to the radio, I’ve got the stereo on. I have my ear right up to the stereo because you can’t hardly hear it. I’m trying to make out a talk show. I don’t know what the talk show is; I’m just trying to get my mind off of what’s happening.
SID: Trying to get distracted.
KRIS: Yeah, trying to get distracted. And I hear this man say this on the radio: “God hasn’t given us a spirit of fear, but love, power, and a sound mind. Second Timothy 1:6” God hasn’t given us a spirit of fear, but love, power, and a sound mind. And he says, through the static I hear him say, “Some of you are having thoughts, and you think you’re insane. But you’re not insane. This spirit that’s speaking to you is a spirit of insanity.” And when he said that, it was like somebody threw cold water on me and woke me from a sleep. And so I turned off the radio, and I’m laying on the floor. It’s three thirty, three o’clock in the morning, and I said “God, what do I do about this?” And not in an audible voice, but as clearly as we’re talking here I heard the Lord say “You’re not insane. A spirit of insanity has come into your life.” And I said “What do I do?” He said “Tell it to leave your life. It has no authority over you in Christ unless you fear it, unless you believe in it.” So I’m laying on the floor and I’m like “Ok, what do I do?” I mean, you realize this was a lot of years ago and I’m like “What do I do?” And the Lord said “Tell it to leave you.” So I said “Well how do I do that?” He said “Tell the spirit of insanity to leave you.” I said “You spirit of insanity, you leave me right now.” And as soon as I said that, something physically; I could feel it got up off my body. And suddenly my shaking stopped. Three and a half years. My mind becomes clear, the visions stop, and I’m like “Huh. Wish I would’ve known that three and a half years ago.”
SID: It sounds too simple Kris.
KRIS: Is that crazy?
SID: But you know when you said that scripture, “God has not given me a spirit of fear,” it actually identified what the problem is. It’s fear and fear is not something you’re just thinking, it is a spirit.
KRIS: Yeah, Second Corinthians 10 talks about the weapons of our warfare not being carnal, but they’re mighty through the pulling down of strongholds. Now this is interesting because and some versions say fortresses, and then He talks about the fortresses in our minds. They’re thoughts, speculations, and lofty things; thoughts, speculations, and lofty things. And Paul says the weapons of our warfare, they’re strong for the pulling down of fortresses, but where are they? They’re thoughts, speculations, and lofty things. Those are all in your mind. Isn’t that amazing?
SID: So all you had to do was speak to it.
KRIS: That’s right.
SID: And it would leave and then your thoughts would be clear.
KRIS: My thoughts were clear. And what happened was, I spent seven days in perfect peace. I spent seven normal days and I’m like “This is amazing. I’m not shaking.” I mean I almost couldn’t believe it, if you know what I mean. You go through something like for three, three and a half years, four years, ten years, some people have had it for years, and you begin to lose hope that you could ever change. And that’s where I was at. I’m like “Someday they’re going to commit me to a mental hospital and it’s going to be over.”
SID: Of course.
KRIS: And then you stop shaking. I guess about a week went by when I was just doing well and suddenly I’m driving down the road, of course Lewiston, we’re living in Lewiston so we’re living out in the mountains, no streetlights, it’s pitch dark, no moon this night. I’m driving home from work one night and I say “I’m going to tell everybody about this.” “I’m going to tell everyone you’re a liar, you’re a cheat.” Because I realized that the devil’s power lies in illusion.
SID: That’s an interesting premise.
KRIS: He’s an illusionist. It lies; his power actually is developed through lies. Because the Bible says that when we’re a Christian, “Greater is He that’s in us than he that’s in the world.” But what happened is that I believed his lie, I took the authority that Jesus gave me to live a Christian life and I put it in the wrong world. I actually empowered that demon to use; he used my power against me.
SID: So when you said you were going to tell everyone about it, what happened?
KRIS: A voice came to me and he said “If you tell anyone I’ll kill you.” All the symptoms returned. I couldn’t drive. I pulled over on the side road, like I said, pitch dark, kind of an eerie setting if you can picture that, out in the middle of the woods. I pull over all of the symptoms come back. And I’m like… seven days of peace right?
SID: Hold that thought. We’ll be right back after this.
