Pastor: Spirit of Addiction Left Me When I Saw Jesus in a Trance

Pastor Jared Laskey says he's had multiple supernatural experiences in his walk with Jesus, including seeing Jesus face-to-face in a trance, which caused his spirit of addiction to leave.

"I was in Youth With a Mission secondary school in L.A. 20 years ago, and we went to Vegas to pray, to see the sights," Laskey says. "But we were praying, and I fell into a trance, and I encountered the risen Lord and the love and the fire in His eyes, the presence, the holiness, the purity. I'd actually been clean and sober less than a year and I still had this spirit of addiction; [I was] trying to get rid of it.

"But the thing, it left, and I know I was oppressed, I know that. But that addiction was gone the moment I encountered Jesus and His love and His fire, and we had a move of God among our group of four for the next 48 hours. It was life-changing."

Laskey also had an opportunity to reunite with his deceased brother in a dream to tell him goodbye, he says on the Adventures in the Spirit podcast on the Charisma Podcast Network.

"I lost a brother tragically 20 years ago," Laskey told prophetic minister Kathy DeGraw. "I was unable to say goodbye. And I've been encountering Jesus since I was 18; this is two years into my new walk with the Lord. But within the week, the Holy Spirit gave me a dream where I saw him and I told him I loved him, and that was closure, you know. [But] sure, grief and all that [still] exists."
