Ep. 78 – Supernatural Weight Loss (Food and Weight pt. 4 of 4)

Katie Souza: Hi, I'mKatie Souza and you're watching “Healing Your Soul:Real Keys to the Miraculous.

” Today's show is another episode where I tellon myself yet again.

I love sharing stories, though, of my shortcomings and failures because God has alwaysturned them around and caused majormiracles to happen.

I believe through my stories, you'll not only be ableto relate, but you'll also geta huge breakthrough too.

Today, I'm going to tell youthe strange story of a time I started rapidlyand mysteriously gaining weight even though I was exercisingand eating right.

This weird situation sent meon a quest from the Lord and ended up in receivinga dramatic healing as well as losingthe weight supernaturally.

I'm going to sharemy story with you today, and I trust itwill bring healing and weight loss to you as well.

Let's start with a quick review.

Katie: In the Old Testament, there were a lotof different offerings, like the wave offering, the first fruits offering, trespass offering, peace offering, sin offering.

There's all these differentkinds of offerings that God asked the peopleto come–to bring into him.

Now, almost every single oneof the offering always involve some sort of food sacrifice.

God would ask the peopleto bring in food as a part of their giving to God.

They would bring in anything, from, you know, flour to grains to oil to wine to lambsto bullocks to goats, on and on and on.

Now, it's very interesting that out of all thesefood offerings that were bought to the altarto sacrifice unto God, there was only one foodthat God ever kept for himself, and that was the fat.

The word fat there in the Biblemeans this: the choicest, best parts, the abundance of the produceof the land, okay? So when God says this:”Don't eat the fat.

The fat belongs to me, “he's saying, “Bring me your choicest, best parts first before you then eat the rest.

” We're going to look at the storyof Eli and his sons.

They actually broke the statueof the Lord and they ate the fat of the sacrifice, and Eli got physically fatbecause of it.

Here's the warning that God gaveto Eli concerning this matter.

Listen, 1 Samuel 2, “So why do you, Eli, scorn my sacrificeand offering that I prescribedfor my dwelling? Why do you honor your sonsmore than me by fattening yourselves on the choicest partsof the offering?” Now, what happened because heate the fat of the offering? Well, he got fat, physically heavy.

Why do I say that? Well, for one, the man of God said, “You are fattening yourself.

You are fattening yourselfon the offering.

” And two, did you knowthat Eli died a very, very heavy man? Katie: My husband and Iare big givers, big givers.

You ask anybody we know.

We give to ministries.

We give to individuals.

We buy gifts for people.

We give money to people.

We support outreaches.

We are big givers, okay? But as I was goingtowards trying to find these keys to supernatural weight loss, God began to show mea place in my heart where I was not giving, where I was eating the fat instead of giving itto the Lord.

See, I love shampoosand conditioners.

Can you tell? I love beauty products, serums, lotions, green drinks, protein drinks, all that stuff.

I just love that stuff, right? When I go into, like, you know, one of those department stores and they have those stretches of counters with lights and shiny thing, I almost feel like I'm going to go outunder the power, right? I love that stuff.

Now, let me tell youwhy I love it.

I grew up in Hawaii.

I was one of the very few whitechildren in my whole school.

So I was bullied and teased and even physically bulliedbecause of it, made me havevery low self-esteem because the color of my skin, made me grow up to be a bully, an extremely violent bully.

And because I grew upin Hawaii, I was a red-haired, freckle-faced kid.

I grew up in the sun–under the sun every day and I developed big brown spotsall over my whole body.

Thick elephant hide-like skin because of beingon the sun constantly all the time, all the time.

As I grew up to be an adult, it only got worse; more spots, more rough-looking skin.

I mean, I looked like I was, you know, 40 years old when I was 20 years old.

It was so bad that Iwouldn't go anywhere wearing anything but long pants, long-sleeved shirts, never showing any partof my body.

Very difficult, especially here, I'm living in Arizona now, it's 117 degreesin the summertime and everybody's running aroundin their tank tops and their shorts, and I'm sitting there going.

.

.

“Wait for me.

.

.

” and everyone is lookingat me, “Man, what is the matter? You must be sweatingyour behind off.

” I'm like, “Uh, yeah.

” and they're like, “Well, wear some mills.

” and I'm too embarrassed to say, “I'd never be caught deadin what you're wearing.

Sorry.

” I would never show my legsor my arms like that.

I'm too embarrassed, too humiliated.

The very few timesI've ever actually ventured out to wear a pair of shortsor a tank top, somebody always hassomething pleasant to say like, “Hey, oh my God, are you okay? Do you have skin canceror a disease or what?” Yeah, very reassuring, right? I mean, I'll goto the nail salon– I remember one time I wentto the nail salon and the spots in the legsare so bad, right? The ladies there are making funof my legs in another language.

Well, little do they know I wentto prison with people that spoke that language, so I knewexactly what they were saying.

Yay.

I almost felt like cursing themout in their language, but I'm born again nowso I didn't.

[audience laughing] Katie: You know, you've heardabout my food issues, and people that are overweightwill come up to me and say, “Well, you know, I know you say that you were overweightat one time, but never as muchas most of us.

So you've never really hadto go through the shame of wearing your problemon your body.

” Oh, yeah? I've had to wear other problemson my body, amen? And it's just beenjust as uncomfortable and just as muchof an embarrassment as anything else, okay? Now, here's the thing, the shame that I felt and the humiliationand embarrassment I felt about my skinhas wounded my soul over my whole life.

So what did I try to do? In order to try to fixthat problem and fix the pain and the shame I felt in it, I would spend money.

“Let me try this miracle cream.

Oh, it says that it's goingto fade spots.

I believe it.

Let's get it.

Let's try it.

Or this peel.

They said that thiswill do the trick.

This is the one, thiswill get rid of it for sure, ” but it never worked.

None of that stuff ever worked.

And then I would trythe next thing and the next thingand the next thing, and pretty soon Iwasn't just eating my part of the offering that God so generously givesto us, I was eating the fat, too.

I was just like the priest.

The priest got allthe food they needed, right? But it wasn't good enough.

They had to eat the fat too, but the fat belongs to the Lord and we are to never eat the fat.

And I had startedto eat the fat, and I wonderedwhy all of a sudden– I went through this one seasonwhere I was like, “Oh–” I was feeling the painand the shame of summertime.

Everybody else is running aroundin their bathing suits and their shorts and having funand I'm like, “Swimming? No, thanks.

Don't invite me to your houseto go swimming.

I'll have to go in, like, a full-on head to toescuba guy diving outfit.

Let me have a spear gun and I'll see if there'sany sharks in your pool.

” But I was going throughthat pain and I began to spend money, spend money to try to fix the problemand I was eating the fat, and suddenly out of the blue, I started gaining weight, started gaining weight.

I had been doing so well, and started gaining weightand I couldn't stop.

It was like every dayI was eating even less.

I was gettingon the treadmill going.

.

.

trying to get it to come off, it wouldn't come off.

It just keep ongoing up, up, up, and I'm like, “Why?” and the Lord says, “Becauseyou're fattening yourself on the choice partsof the offering.

” Did you hear what I said? This is a big one.

This is a big one.

I asked God what hewas going to do in this session and he showed me steppingon the back of a cat– sorry if it's–if you'rea cat lover.

I'm not trying to injure youor wound you.

I'm a dog lover.

No, I'm kidding.

I am, though.

Doesn't mean anything.

I love your cat, too.

I do.

But I took it and I went.

.

.

and I skinnedthe skin off of it.

Now, sometimes I'll see cats or bats or spidersto represent witchcraft.

Do you understand? What is witchcraft?The sin of rebellion.

When you eat the fat, you're in rebellion, and God told meto skin the cat tonight.

[audience applauding] Katie: When I skinned the cat, for me everything changed.

God told me that, and what I did first is I went, “Oh my God, ” right? I was like, “Okay–” I got downon my knees I was like, “Okay, God, I repentfor every time I ate the fat offering and I ate the choicest partsof the offering and didn't bring it to you 'cause I've been fatteningmyself on that choice partsof the offering, and I just repent for thatright now in Jesus's name.

” and I go.

.

.

see if I felt anything.

“Nope.

” And I'm like, “Well, I don't feel anything, God.

” He goes, “That's because youneed to bring me back the fat you ate.

” “Ouch.

” It doesn't work if you don't.

So I went before the Lordand I went, “Okay, how much?” and he told me 800 bucks.

That's how much moneyI was spending on myself.

That just gives youan idea 'cause, you know, God only takesa small little part.

So I must have been spendingsome big cash to try to makemy problem go away and try to makemy soul feel better and it wasn't working.

So he said 800 bucks.

And so I wrote out the check.

.

.

and I brought itbefore the Lord, and then I prayedand then I repented and I asked Godto forgive me for eating the fatand making myself fat on the choicest partsof the offering and I handed it inand I felt fire.

I felt fire fell on my stomach, fire fell on my head, fire fell on my arms and legs.

Fire, fire, fire.

That night I had a dream that I destroyedthat evil spirit, and right then I stoppedgaining the weight.

And within 2 weeks while I was laying on my couchtaking a nap– I had just weighed myselfbefore I got on the couch because God said, “I'm going to do a miraclefor you right now.

” I laid down on the couch, fell asleep for 45 minutes, woke up, and supernaturally lostall the pounds I'd gained during the time when Iwas eating the fat.

Well, I took a nap.

So happy while I took a nap.

I challenge you.

Where have youbeen eating the fat in an effort to tryto make yourself feel better? Have you been overspendingon something in an effort to try to bringpeace, comfort, satisfaction to your wounded soul? Is there some things that you've been spendingyour money on? Look, it's okay to have stuff.

God wants us to have stuff, but have you gottenout of balance like I did? Amen? You need to, like, ask the Holy Spiritto tell you that, amen? By the way, I just have to throw this in.

When the hubby and Igot married, one of the deciding factors is how would he handlethe spots.

So before we got married, I said, “Before we get married, you need to see these thingson my leg to make sure you're not going to becompletely grossed out and change your mind.

” So I looked at himand I go, “So I'm going to showyou the spots.

” He goes, “All right.

“So I go.

.

.

and he looks down and he looks upright in the eyes and goes, “What spots?” [audience applauding] Katie: The hubby knowshow to rock it.

By the way, God is startingto do supernatural miracles for me in that area.

See, we desperately tryto make things happen in the natural and spend moneyand stuff to fix a problem when God says, “Hey, nothingis impossible with me.

Why don't you let mefix those spots?” announcer: Part of your generousgift today helps Katie minister to prisoners everywhere.

I was using food to comfortmy wounded soul.

Katie: So now I'm goingto take an offering.

Yes, I am.

But I only want you to sow if the Holy Spirittells you to sow.

If he doesn't, then don't.

This is not between me and you, it's between you and him.

But I do want to explainabout the fire.

Why did I feel fire when I brought the offeringand then repented? You know, fireis what God brings when you bring an offering.

Ninety times in the Biblewhere it talks about people bringing an offering, it always says– 90 places, 90 placesin the Bible that God always metevery offering with fire, that he would send the fire down and the fire would consumethe offering.

Now, why is thatso important to us? Why is that so important to us? Do you know what fire does? It burns up the chaffinside your soul that's making you spendthe money in the first place.

What does it say in Matthew 3? When John the Baptistwas preaching and he was talking aboutthe coming of Jesus Christ, when he says that Jesuswould baptize us with the Holy Spiritand with fire, and his winnowing forkwill be in his hand and he will separatethe wheat from the chaff and burn up the chaffwith unquenchable fire.

What's that chaff? It's the stuff in herethat's driving your appetites, and fire comes and burns it up, gets rid of it so you don't even want to spendthat money anymore, so you don't even needthat thing to comfort your soul anymore, amen? Do you know in the book of Acts, it talks aboutwhen the day of Pentecost, right, when the firecame down from heaven? Do you remember that? Fire came down from heaven and tongues of firelanded on everybody.

What did thosetongues of fire do when they landed on everybody? I'll tell you what they did.

They healed those peoplein the upper room of all the woundednessin their souls.

How do I know that?Read Acts 2 in the Amplified.

It says, “When the Holy Spirit–the Pentecost had come, they were all assembledtogether in one place and suddenly there camea sound from heaven like the rushing of a violent, tempest blast and it filled the whole housein which they were sitting, and there appeared to themtongues resembling fire which were separatedand distributed and settledon each one of them.

” Now, listen to this part.

This is in the Amplified, and this is what the fire did.

It says that it appeared on themand then they were all filled, diffused throughout their soulswith that fire.

See, when the fire cameon the day of Pentecost, it went into their soulsand they were changed people.

Think about it, Peter was the guy that just deniedthe Lord three times.

He was the guythat gave up and said, “I'm going to go back fishing.

” He was the guy–they were all afraid.

They were hidingin the upper room.

But now here's Peter, the fire comes, diffusesinto his soul, and what happens? He's now preachingto 3, 000 people and they're all getting saved.

Peter's a new man becausethe fire diffused into his soul and burned up the chaff.

See, that's what happenswhen you bring your offering.

Every single offering, God meets it with fire.

Every single one.

There is not onebiblical example that– the offering is met with fire.

Fire, fire, fire.

When you ask the Lord, “Now, have I been eating the fat? If so, what offering do youwant me to bring back?” And when you bring it up here, fire's going to come.

Fire is going to come and it's going to burn upthe chaff in your soul that made you spendthat money in the first place.

And you knowwhat else fire does? Hey, if you throw a pieceof steak with some fat on it on the fire, it'll burn upthe fat, won't it? I'm telling you right now, fire gets rid of the fatin your body too.

You will start to seesupernatural weight loss, increase–steady increaseof weight loss, even a burning up of the diseasesand the disorders that are comingwith weight problems, weight issues, and gut-related diseases when you bring that offering upand the fire comes, amen? I'm telling you what, this is real, this is real.

I'm not preaching a message, I'm preaching a reality.

God is already releasinghealing power just because you're receivingthe message and you're willing to bring backthe fat that you ate.

Remember, he slayed Eli's sonsbecause they ate the fat.

This is serious business to God.

He wants your firstand your best.

He wants the choicest partsfirst and that includes even your money, your time in every part of your life, and when youdon't give it to him, you could be fattening yourselfon the offering by eating the choice parts.

Oh, Holy Spirit, come now and show us.

Make a real breakfor these people just like you did for me, God.

You stopped the weight gain, you had me lose the weight, and you freed me up.

I feel so free now, and I understand now I'm able to check myself.

When I think aboutbuying something, I always ask you first, Lord.

I don't let my wounded souldrive my spending.

It doesn't work if youdon't bring the offering.

It doesn't.

I tried it.

I thought I could get awaywith just repenting and asking for forgiveness, but no power, no fire came when I did that.

It only came when Ibrought the offering.

Rodney Orsborn: This teaching, I did personally a year ago and in the midstof this teaching, it was immediate that Ihad to give an offering, and it wasn't until I gavethe offering that I began to getthe revelation.

Every time I hit my easy chairin my living room, I would want to eatand I would be full.

Or I would have dinnerin my easy chair and eat, and then 5 minutes later I'm up and I'm lookingthrough the pantry and I'm looking in the fridge.

And it wasn't until I heardthis teaching and it wasn't until, really, after I put the offering and made a fat offering that Ibegan to get the revelation.

And during the soakingin my office, the Lord takes me backwhen I was 3 years old, and I see myselfsitting in an easy chair in my grandmother's house.

And what happened was– is there was always some typeof drama in the family, and so when it was time to drop me offat grandma's house to be a representationof peace in my life, that would be our time where shewould sit me in the easy chair and she would order pizza.

And so I would indulgein this pizza, but what I failed to realize isI always had an urge to drink.

A second soak, the Lordtakes me back to that scene where I'm sittingin the easy chair eating pizza and I look overand my grandmother always drank a beerwhen I'm sitting down, and this is my modelfor peace growing up well into my Christian life.

Katie: So I can have peaceif I sit in the easy chair, have pizza or food, and drink a beer? Rodney: Exactly, and it wasn'tuntil this teaching that that broke, and I can honestly and fruitfully saythat it has no place in me.

Katie: Come on.

Katie: I need you to stopwhat you're doing right now and just stand therefor 2 minutes so you can receive this decreeof fire into your soul.

Believe it or not, this is how you get healed.

You need to stop and give this prayeryour full attention, okay? I'm going to start makingdecrees over you according to Scripture.

You ready? In Acts 2 in the Amplified, it says that the fire of God came down and diffusedinto their souls.

I command fire, dunamis fireto diffuse into your soul right now to burn up everythingthat is not of God and make youexcellent of soul.

I command his fire to changeyou so much that you will be as transformed as Peter waswhen he went from being a betraying discipleto a mighty man of God.

I release Malachi 4:1 on youand I decree that all the wicked evil thingsin your life are being burned up and his fire is diffusinginto your soul and it will leaveneither root nor branch behind.

I command the fire to burnso brightly and so deep that every rootin your inner man will be completely burned upand you'll never be controlled by that bitter root again.

I speak to Malachi 3, verses 2 and 3 over you that he the Lord is like a refiner's fireand a fuller's soap.

I decree that the fire of Godis cleansing you, refining you, purifying you, and purging youof all unrighteousness.

I decree your soul is beingcompletely healed by his fire.

Receive his fire right now.

I decree that you are the righteousnessof God in Christ.

In Jesus's name, amen.

In the Bible, whenever people brought their offeringsto the altar, God always answeredwith fire.

I decree that as you releaseyour offering, God will release the fire and it will not only healyour soul, but it will also burn upthe physical fat in your body.

I command fat cellsto burn and dissolve.

I command allunnecessary fat cells to be expelled from your body.

I decree youwill lose weight quickly, easily, and even supernaturally.

In Jesus's name, I declare these things.

Amen.
