When Julia first got involved in exotic dancing, she never thought it would lead to demonic oppression. Read Transcript


Reporter: ON AN

AFTERNOON TRAIN RIDE THROUGH

CHICAGO, JULIA JORDAN

REMEMBERS THE FEAR.

ALL THESE VOICES START

COMING OUT OF ME, DIFFERENT

VOICES.

LIKE A LITTLE GIRL'S VOICE,

AN ANGRY, GROWLING VOICE.

Reporter: FOR MONTHS,

JULIA BELIEVES SHE WAS

TORMENTED BY DEMONS.

I'M JUST SWEATING, AND

THE ROOM INSTANTANEOUSLY

FEELS LIKE IT IS 100°.

I'M, LIKE, OH, MY GOSH, WHAT

IS HAPPENING TO ME?

Reporter: JULIA SAYS

THE ATTACK RESULTED FROM

YEARS OF BAD CHOICES AND

RUNNING AWAY FROM GOD.

I'M YOUNG, WHY NOT TRY

AND DISCOVER AND GET OUT OF

THIS LITTLE TOWN I'VE BEEN

IN MY WHOLE LIFE.

APPEALED TO ME.

Reporter: JULIA GREW UP

GOING TO CHURCH, AND

REMEMBERS THE FAMILY FRIEND

WHO OFTEN TOLD HER HOW MUCH

GOD LOVES HER.

I FELT LOVE LIKE I'VE

NEVER FELT BEFORE, AND JOY

THAT I'VE NEVER FELT

BEFORE.

SO I KNEW WHAT SHE WAS

TALKING ABOUT WAS REAL.

Reporter: BUT OVER THE

YEARS, SHE STARTED HEARING A

DIFFERENT MESSAGE ABOUT

GOD.

IF YOU DON'T DO THIS, GOD

I HEARD A LOT OF THOSE TYPE

OF MESSAGES.

AND I GOT FRUSTRATED BECAUSE

I KNEW I WAS ALWAYS GOING TO

BE FALLING SHORT.

I KNEW I WAS NEVER GOOD

ENOUGH.

Reporter: SO JULIA

WALKED AWAY FROM THE CHURCH

AND GOD.

BY NOW SHE WAS IN COLLEGE ON

HER DIME.

EVENTUALLY SHE NEEDED

MONEY.

I STARTED TO GET THIS

ANXIETY, LIKE, HOW AM I

GOING TO PAY FOR ALL OF THIS

AND WHAT AM I GOING TO DO?

>.

HER SHE COULD MAKE GOOD

MONEY AS AN EXOTIC DANCER.

JULIA SAW IT AS AN

OPPORTUNITY, BUT WANTED TO

ESTABLISH SOME BOUNDARIES.

I DIDN'T DRINK, I DIDN'T

SMOKE, I DIDN'T LET GUYS

TOUCH ME.

Reporter: LATER, IN

SCHOOL, SHE STARTED A

MODELING CAREER.

I DEFINITELY DIDN'T FEEL

CONFIDENT OR BEAUTIFUL.P &C @&Cú

I NEEDED THOSE TITLES TO

MAKE ME FEEL VALIDATED.

Reporter: DURING THIS

TIME SHE MET JOHN, WHO WAS

ALSO A MODEL, AND THEY

MARRIED.

WHEN I WAS A LITTLE GIRL,

MY SUNDAY SCHOOL TEACHER

SAID WRITE A LIST OF

EVERYTHING YOU WANT IN A

PARTNER.

Reporter: STILL, JULIA

WAS STANCEIN DANCING IN

STRIP CLUBS AND THOUGHT

NOTHING OF IT.

NOW THAT WAS CHANGING.

I HAD TO STOP DANCING,

BECAUSE I THOUGHT AFTER ALL

GOD HAS DONE FOR ME, I CAN'T

BREAK HIS HEART.

I FEEL REALLY BAD ABOUT IT

NOW.

Reporter: THEN SHE LOST

A CLOSE FRIEND TO A HEART

ATTACK.

I REALIZED THAT LIFE IS

SHORT.

AND IF I'M GOING TO START

LIVING FOR GOD, I CAN'T KEEP

PUTTING IT OFF ANOTHER DAY.

I FELT THIS THOUGHT IN MY

HEART, LIKE, OPEN THE

BIBLE.

Reporter: THE WORDS

WERE PIERCING.

THE VERY FIRST VERSE I

LAND ON IS IN MATTHEW.

IF YOUR EYE OFFENDS YOU, CUT

IT OUT.

IT IS BETTER TO GO TO HEAVEN

WITH ONE EYE THAN NOT TO GO

TO HEAVEN AND HAVE TWO

EYES.

I THOUGHT, I THINK THE LORD

IS TALKING ABOUT MY JOB.

Reporter: JULIA SAYS AS

SHE CONTINUED READING, SHE

FELT A STRANGE PRESENCE.

SHE CALLED HER MOTHER.

I'M READING THE BIBLE,

AND SOMETHING WEIRD IS

HAPPENING.

AND THEN I'M LAYING ON THE

BED, AND ALL OF A SUDDEN,

BOOM, MY HANDS GO UP AND MY

FEET ARE, LIKE, TO THE BED

POSTS.

IT FEELS LIKE SOMETHING IS

TIED AROUND MY WRISTS AND MY

ANKLES.

AND I GO, MOM, AND ALL OF A

SUDDEN THIS VOICE JUST RIPS

THROUGH MY BODY, AND IT'S

NOT ME.

AND IT SAYS, I HATE YOU!

I HATE YOU!

AND IT'S JUST GROWLING.

Reporter: JULIA'S

MOTHER AND FRIENDS FROM

CHURCH RUSHED OVER TO PRAY

FOR HER.

SHE MADE IT THROUGH THE

ORDEAL.

OVERTHE NEXT SEVERAL

MONTHS, SHE HAD MORE

ATTACKS.

JOHN WASN'T CONVINCED THEY

WERE SUPER NATURAL.

SHE IS NOT

DEMON-POSSESSED.

MY WIFE HAS A MENTAL ISSUE.

SHE HAS MAYBE SOME KIND OF

DEPRESSION OR SOMETHING

WRONG WITH HER

PSYCHOLOGICAL.

WHEN I LEFT, SHE WAS TOTALLY

NORMAL, AND THEN ONE NIGHT

SHE WAS NOT.

Reporter: ONE NIGHT

JULIA JUMPED OUT OF THE CAR

AS JOHN WAS DRIVING.

HE CHECKED HER INTO A

PSYCHIATRIC HOSPITAL.

I SAID TO GOD, IF YOU'RE

REAL, I NEED HELP.

I CAPITO CAN'T DO THIS.

I CAN'T FIX THIS.

PLEASE, GOD, HELP ME.

Reporter: JULIA FOUND A

CHURCH THAT KNEW HOW TO

HELP, BUT FIRST JULIA HAD TO

GIVE HER LIFE TO GOD.

LORD, I'VE LIVED FOR THE

DEVIL MY WHOLE LIFE.

I'VE LIVED FOR MYSELF MY

WHOLE LIFE.

AND NOW I WANT TO LIVE FOR

YOU.

Reporter: SHE FELT A

CHANGE.

THE WORD IS THE BREAD OF

LIFE.

IT LITERALLY WAS FILLING ME

UP SO MUCH THAT THE DEMONS

JUST EXPLODED THEMSELVES.

THAT PART WAS AMAZING TO

ME.

Reporter: SHE GAVE HER

LIFE TO CHRIST, AND JOHN DID

THE SAME.

JULIA QUIT DANCING.

SHE AND JOHN BEGAN STUDYING

GOD'S WORD AND BUILDING

THEIR FAITH.

I START OFF THE DAY IN

PRAYER, AND I ALWAYS THANK

THE LORD BECAUSE I WANT TO

BE REMINDED OF HOW GOOD HE

IS.

I FEEL LIKE LIVING FOR THE

LORD IS THIS GREAT

ADVENTURE.

INSTEAD OF GOING ON OUR

WINGS, WE LET THE LORD CARRY

US.

WE LET THE LORD CHANGE US.
