Set Free From Religion: Tena’s Testimony

9 Apr

Here are some biblical variations to explain your position as an out of churcher:

The Lord’s Teaching About the Tree and Its Fruit

The Lord teaches us to know the essence of a thing, you have to look to both its root and its fruit. For ANYTHING, the same test applies. A good tree does not bring forth evil fruit and an evil tree does not bring forth good fruit. So when speaking to others of a different point of view, apply the Lord’s principle. You may not find history one of your favorite subjects but there is a simple way to expose the darkness in the church. So cultivate a historical perspective of how the organized IC started in with the Roman Emperor Constantine in 313 AD, a fake Christian who did not abandon his pagan gods. In fact, Constantine and not the Pope, is the father of the Roman the Catholic Church. All churches have the Catholic Church as their mother. It is not difficult to present the witchcraft nature of Catholicism. Since the root and the tree itself are evil, how can one expect anything different from the fruit of the IC? Its foundation, its historical roots, were established by an emperor of Rome.

The Parable of the Mustard Seed

The Lord’s kingdom of heaven parable in Matt 13 speaks of the mustard seed that grew into a huge tree with many branches with the birds of the air coming and dwelling in them.

The mustard seeds are the early apostles and disciples, the 120 in the upper room. The trunk and the roots of the tree is Catholicism. The branches are Protestant churches and denominations. Jesus explains later in the chapter that the symbolism of birds is that they represent demons. Fallen angels and demons have swarmed into the IC and taken her over with false religion.

Rev 18:4 Come Out of Her My People

You want to encourage those who are on the fence about the IC to think for themselves. Revelation is predominately an endtime book for endtime believers. So clearly the Lord is speaking to the last generation when He warns His people to come out of “Her.” So to encourage free thinking, how can God’s people all leave a nation? God’s people are in ALL nations.

If we were to leave the USA, where would we go…? Canada? The Caribbean? South America? Back to England? Would God tell us to come out and not give us the means to do so? Countries have immigration laws in these times.

So could HER be a nation? Where are those who call themselves God’s people? THEY ARE MOSTLY IN CHURCH. Biblical symbols for God’s people are generally feminine, both in the old and the new testaments. Revelation mentions the harlot. The mother of harlots is Catholicism, the mother of all denominations, sects and non-denominational churches.

Of course there will always be the diehards who quote the scripture about not forsaking the assembling of yourself together with the brethren. Point out to them that when the scripture itself was written, the institutional church did not exist. So the Apostle Paul certainly was not referring to Sunday morning worship.

I think if Paul was aware of our modern methods of communication, he would approve of our online Christian fellowship called RESCUE

Here are some biblical reason for coming out of the institutional church at this time in history:

Practicing Witchcraft Unawares By Creating Thoughtforms

26 Mar

blog_11Back in 1974, on my own and experimenting in ignorance. I did not realize that various practices like hypnotism and other forms of deep meditation and astrology  were an open door to inviting evil spirits into my life so I don’t stand in judgment of anyone. The truth of the matter is  I was blessed to be delivered of occultism the day I was born again, March 29, 1977. Actually,  I really did not learn  very much about occultism “back in the day.” Consequently,  since deliverance is a major part of what I do in this season, particularly with captives who have dabbled or been deeply into some form of spiritism, I have been reading about occultic practices that were unknown to me 40 years ago.  Fully cognizant of copyright protection, much of what I read was without an author’s name.  I quote from the website called Joy of Satan Ministries.

So in my perusal of online   articles  written by occultists, Satanists, and witches, they are all on one accord about how to practice witchcraft.  Simply put, occultists have to go into a deep trance through meditation, yoga, or self hypnosis  and once in an altered state of consciousness at the right level or vibration, they  use visualization and intense concentration to create a thoughtform.

How is a thoughtform defined in the literature?  To keep it simple, the best way to describe a thoughtform is to compare it to the way children create imaginary friends. A thoughtform is a non-physical entity created purely from thought. While in meditation, the thoughtform is shaped with the mind into a silver ball. Occultists use this light to shape a ball of light, compacting and drawing more and more light into the ball until it has a diameter of approximately 10-15 inches. The ball should be like a brilliant radiating sun. The brighter the ball, the more powerful it is. (Joys Of Satan Ministries) 

 Back in 2002,  a pastor contacted me for deliverance.  He awoke suddenly by the phone ringing  to people screaming in fear, and when he turned around, he saw a spinning silver ball coming toward him that first hit him in his chest and went inside of him. From that very moment, the pastor was overcome with fear.    I did not know what this silver ball was until I  recently started reading up on thoughtforms.  I treated the silverball as if it was a demon, cast out the spirit of fear from him over the phone and he was instantly delivered. 

Both white magic and black magic practitioners use thoughtforms in their work for different purposes. In such cases, the thoughtform is referred to as a “magickal assistant.”  According to an article written on the Joys od Satan website. I strongly recommend that the readers do not visit this website on your own):

 A thoughtform does not always have to be destroyed. Witches for centuries have often kept a reliable magickal assistant. Some have even spent lifetimes with the same assistant. The magickal assistant must be “fed” regularly. By “fed” this means giving it energy and programming it. Destroying a faithful and reliable servant is foolish.

A thoughtform is a small packet of condensed psychic energy. Like all energy, the thoughtform can be programmed to carry out specific tasks and/or directed to travel to a target area. The success of the thoughtform is dependent upon the mind strength and aura of its creator. A weak thought form will quickly dissipate, accomplishing nothing.

Powerful thoughtforms, when neglected can wreak havoc. Energy feeds on energy and a thought form that is several weeks old will have accumulated all kinds of different influences, emotions and other energy from its surroundings. This might appear to be amusing to some, but the mutated thought form has often been known to reappear in the locale of its creator, only to wreak havoc, due to the outside energies it has accumulated.

Recently, I cast out all demons from someone who obtained 70-80 percent relief from torment.  So when she told me that entities were still flooding into and out of her eyes, I knew they were not demons.  Once demons are in a person, they do not float out on their own.  Once inside, to get them out, they must be cast out.  This also did not sound like the work of fallen angels.  Well, to make a long story short, it was uncovered that she had created hundreds of thoughtforms through masturbation.  The literature  revealed

All quotes taken from : © Copyright 2007, Joy of Satan Ministries;
Library of Congress Number: 12-16457
:

You can masturbate and drive energy into the creature (thoughtform) at the time of programming.  You should use the energy from both your base and second chakras to incite lust. (Joy of Satan Ministries.”

I suspect that the person I am working with created multiple thoughtforms when she masturbated and visualized she was in a room with a load of men.  These could be the thoughforms that are flowing in and out of her eyes.

The truth of the matter is that I strongly suspect that thoughtforms are a much neglected subject  of deliverance.  In fact, thoughforms give new meaning to the scripture regarding casting down imaginations and every high thing that would exalt itself above the knowledge of God and bringing all thoughts into the obedience of Christ.  A thoughtform is both imaginary and real, created either by the captive’s own thought life  or by someone who has strong animosity for him or her. 

How do I intend to destroy them?  Well the author of the article on Joys of Satan teaches that to destroy a thoughtform, you ,must first summon it, visualize it coming to you and hovering in the air before you. Then you are to focus and visualize the energy vanishing  like smoke into the air and say something like “you are no more.” The author suggest that the creator of the thoughtform will have to repeat this procedure several times.

That is all well and good but I intend to do what I did 12 years ago when I cast that entity  from the pastor.  I intend to use the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth against all thoughtforms.

So how does one practice witchcraft unawares?  Well, Charismatics are doing it all the time without realizing it.  Consider Leroy Thompson, the preacher that came up with the affirmation “money cometh to ME!”   Here is a comparable  example from “the Joys of Satan” Ministries  website.  See if you notice the similarities to prosperity teachings:

Energy does not have the reasoning power as to *HOW* what you want is coming to you. Energy takes the path of least resistance, unless it is programmed. For example, many of you want more money. Don’t just affirm “Money is coming to me.” This could manifest, if undirected, say on a job where you handle money, like a cashier for example, or through your paycheck, as usual. That is the easiest way. You have to further affirm: “Large amounts of free and easy money are coming to me.” “This money is all mine to keep and spend as I wish.” You also should affirm “in a very positive and happy way for me.” You don’t want a loved one to die and leave you an inheritance or get the money in a way that would be unpleasant.
So your affirmation would go something like this: “Large amounts of free and easy money are coming to me, This money is all mine to keep and spend as I wish. This money is coming to me in a very positive and happy way for me.”

Once again, the occultists and Satanists are far more advanced in these matters than their so-called   Christian counterparts.

The Devil Uses the Psalms

19 Feb

fb_45Don’t ever, ever do the nightly reciting of the Psalms 91 or Psalm 37. Even though the psalms are in the bible, to use them in that way is witchcraft. It is not keeping you safe, it is putting you in more danger.

If you need protection, it just doesn’t work like that. The outcome of a situation is up to God’s sovereign will. I don”t know what religious background you come from, but in the Charismatic churches I grew up in, we were always taught to do that, to recite scripture out loud, and that was “the sword of the spirit,” and that it would defeat the enemy. As a matter of fact, my mom had me reciting Psalms 91 every night specifically! Throughout my life, I would often speak it if I felt I was in danger or needed protection.

I’m not saying it doesn’t work. It may very well work, but it’s not because God is the one doing the protecting. It is the fallen angels doing it.They are the ones to respond to those kinds of prayers, not the true God. So to make that work would be praying to and receiving from devils.

The problem with the teaching of reciting scriptures out loud for that purpose is that it assumes that control is in our hands, and that reciting those scriptures is a way of enforcing that control. Control is in God’s hands and not ours. He did not intend for us to use His Word in that way. Doing so, of course a person has good intentions, they don’t know it’s witchcraft, but that doesn’t stop the evil entities from taking it as an invitation, as ground they can use to operate in your life.

The only right way is to ask God for protection is according to His will. It’s up to what He wills to do, it’s not up to us to decide and make it happen by means of reciting scripture. But if a person isn’t born again, they shouldn’t pray at all, because those prayers will not be heard from the Father, but heard and answered by Sananda. To pray for protection would do more harm than good.

You’d be better off with no protection than with protection by the fake Jesus aka Jesus Sananda. He protects people like how a pimp “protects” his hoes. Yeah, he’ll protect them from the men, but only because those men threaten his property. In the meantime, he will abuse, beat, and exploit his women all he wants to. He only keeps them “safe” so he can use them to his own ends, as opposed to them being used to somebody else’s. He’s not really protecting his women. He’s protecting his commodity, which is ultimately just protecting himself. Protection from Sananda’s angels is the exact same thing. Yeah, they’ll protect you, because they want you as their property to exploit, they’re not about to let somebody else steal their exploit. Like, if a farmer has a pig he is fattening up to cook for Christmas. He’ll protect that pig from wild animals, but only because he wants to be the one to eat the pig.

Chakras and the Kundalini

11 Feb

chakrasUntold professing Christians are seeking spiritual ecstasy or communion with God by adopting Eastern practices and they are coming away from it in torment.

In fact, practically  every call for deliverance  I receive these days  is from professing Christian   chakra openers  who are in torment with this energy. The most prominent sign is burning at the chakra points. Some people feel like they are on fire within. They also complain of  body jerks, particularly around  the crown of the  head.  Other manifestations include uncontrollable laughter, movements on the inside of the body.  sexual contact, and  astral projection where their  spirits  have  their bodies.    When demons enter the opened chakras, several report hearing condemning, accusing  voices.

Here  are some essential points from what I have discovered in reviewing some literature online regarding  how chakras are opened:

There are many different methods of awakening kundalini power. Some of these include:

Chanting- Vibration is very powerful. The power of sound can break glass, weaken steel, and cement structures. Vibrations cause the chakras to open and stimulate the kundalini at the base of the spine. The chanting reminds me of tongues. Clearly, the enemy’s purpose for tongues among those seeking The Lord is to release the Kundalini. The prayer language practice of the Charismatics and Pentecostals is very similar to chanting. Both the New Agers and Christian mystics become mindless as they utter.

Controlled Breathing (pranyama) – Different methods of controlled breathing are specific to each chakra. “Christian yoga has become acceptable in the denominational churches. Furthermore, Christian therapists are implementing  controlled breathing  to ease anxiety. They ask their clients to  count to a certain number as they  inhaled, they  hold their breath for a certain number, then exhale for a certain number,  very similar to the eastern breathing practices to open chakras.

Visualization  and concentration- Occultists are taught that through visualizing and focusing your mind on each chakra, you can open, close and control them. Visualization and concentration is  also used in witchcraft, a separate subject  to be addressed in another post..  There are several Christian practices that do a similar thing like contemplative prayer as an example.

The main purpose of opening the chakras is to release the kundalini energy that lies dormant at the base of the back.  According to occultists, if any chakra is blocked,   the burning sensation would manifest. Also, the sensation of the crawlies near the crown chakra strongly indicates that a chakra is blocked. For example, if it were the 6th chakra as most sources of information available concur, the sensation would be at the throat or BENEATH the 6th chakra. From direct experience, it appears that the  seventh is the most difficult chakra to fully open. Consequently, the sensation of the crawlies, compared by some to ants crawling, indicates that the kundalini energy is going *around* the seventh chakra and not *through* it as it should when this chakra has been fully opened. Other symptoms include pain and discomfort, especially when one’s kundalini energy  is fully activated.

The occultists advise on how to fix this situation.  Their remedy is to temporarily close the chakras, the same way you opened them but in reverse.  In fact, these folk will periodically close their chakras to avoid what they call psychic vampirism. Occultists claim that when all the chakras are open, they can pick up and feel all the negative energy from people and demons around them.  This what they have called “psychic vampirism.”  So when they close their chakras, they do it in the same way they opened them, namely through visualization.

Even so, I refuse to tell people to return to their former occult practices because opening chakras to release kundalini is similar to the Christian, I am god with a little g To support my contention, here is a statement I found on a New Age Website:

 Kundalini is the highest form of yoga. It is a god thing. All of the tenets of Yoga, Buddhism, Hinduism, etc., and the western religions, preach helplessness, instruct one on how to be a total victim and try to make sure the results obtained from these disciplines are kept under strict control, if obtained at all. Sacred writings (hiero means “Holy” and glyph means “symbol”) left for us in Egypt (one of the original centers of True Satanism) are instructions for becoming a god. “

As is often the case, the occultist present a partial truth. So they are correct on one score. Helplessness and victimization are forms of passivity that are ingrained in religious churchgoers. This statement  also tells us why God allows believers to be tormented by demons.  It is when you open your chakras and release the kundalini, you are trying to become a god, which is a breaking of the Ten Commandments and an offense to God.

Yet once you humble yourself and desire truth, God will have mercy on you and the evil spirits will have to cut you loose.

At RESCUE, we will teach you how to close your chakras  in ways that are acceptable to the Holy Spirit.  So give us a call at 518-4-5759

Book Review of Faces of the Religious Demon

Review of Faces of the Religious Demon

It’s with certain confidence that I express that the flesh of Pam Sheppard didn’t write this book. The Spirit of the God of truth worked in Pam’s spirit to complete this work that penetrates to the core. Yokes are indeed destroyed with content contained in this vitally helpful book.

Clearly, it’s evident that Pam wrote this with comprehensive awareness through her spiritual and educational journeys. It was enlightening to “travel” through Pam’s varied experiences. The book is compelling and provocative in its telling. Pam weaves and threads with artistic flourish rendering this book a smooth read. Yes, God uses Pam to empower by granting us access to her personal failures and successes. Her spirit is on the pulse of what’s essential for such a time as this.

This review can go on but in the interest of space, in conclusion, I HIGHLY recommend Faces of the Religious Demon. Significant truths pour from its chapters. Much of the content is unprecedented in scope and character. Truly, Faces of the Religious Demon possesses the heartbeat of what is key to know.

Pam mentions being spiritually sensitive. Obviously, she heeded those words as she yielded to the Spirit of the living God as He generously revealed potent substance. And there’s clear proof that the hand of Jesus Christ of Nazareth is indeed resident in what was written by heir of salvation, Pamela Irene Sheppard.

I consider this a priority read indeed!

Why Demonic Torment?

7 Nov

The Bible tells us that there would come a time when the entire world would be under the sway of the evil one.

That time is NOW!  So before I waste my time confronting demons on a captive’s behalf, I have to find out “what is the captive doing and believing that has opened the door to the influence of demonic spirits?” If the captive lacks knowledge of how his own problem began and how he is continuing to hinder himself, how can the source of his problem be recognized? My goal with pre-deliverance mentoring is to close the doorways the captive has opened and KEEP THEM CLOSED!!!!

Some people accept torment as “suffering for the Lord”, yet they ain’t even saved. The truth is that  I would know nothing of demonic torment if it were not for hundreds of captives  with false conversions who have sought me to cast out tormenting demons.

From the positive side, torment has a meaning.  Torment is a sign to the victim that he or she is not saved. Why? Because those whom God has saved have been given peace, and not a spirit of fear or torment.   Nevertheless, torment also is allowed by God because He wants the tormented one  to realize that something is wrong.  And since He allows the enemy to do this to a person who has had a false conversion, it is all a sign that God truly intends to save him or her.

Sometimes a victim is tormented because the gods of their non-Christian religion,  are outraged that their victim decided to go to church and “accept Jesus.” Often “offered to the gods” by their parents, the occult/witchcraft demons stand on their covenant rights, ie. “His parents gave him to US!” On the other hand,  The religious demon stands on “well, I was asked to come into his heart, so I have a contract as well. He gave himself to us and invited us in, by his own free will.””   The victim is viewed by occult demons as a traitor for joining up with a religious demon and the IC. . The fight over the victim  between the occult/witchcraft spirit and the religious demon has its battleground in the soul and body of the victim, experienced as torment. Africans, Asians and Indians who convert to Christianity yet they had a false conversion are likely to be tormented.

Look at it like this.  The enemy may know that even though you are not saved NOW, that you shall BE a devout, strong believer once born again. Consequently the  religious demon assigned may be targeting  you with strong torment while he still  has a chance.

So you need to educate yourself as to how you got into this mess and what you need to do to get out of it.. Stay away from the IC and deliverance ministry.  You can call us at 518-477-5759.  the first place to start is with books at www.lulu.com/spotlight/pam_s911.

Outcomes of Opened Chakras: The Account of Martii in Finland

25 Oct

YouTube is being overrun by drugs without narcotics or alcohol. These are mental drugs called idozers. . For example, the binaural beat videos are idozers that contain subliminal messages that alter one’s beliefs in the subconscious. These videos “claim to help you” to quit smoking, to focus, to meditate, to build your self confidence, and cleverly teach mind control in a witchcraft style based upon the law of attraction. In fact, the teachings claim that those who practice it’s tenets can make any other human being attracted to them by “uploading data to his brain”.

Martii from Finland watched 4 YouTube videos on binaural beats when He was 17 years old, He was led to them after smoking marihuana once, where he claims that he opened a chakra doorway to the first demon that entered him two years ago. In Martii’s  own words:


This demon kept me in fear for over 2 years that my personality had changed “because of smoking a miniature amount of marihuana”.The demon led me to try a self-confidence binaural beats, one of them was a self-confidence binaural beat; which contained “messages”.One of the messages was “I have the power within me”.

They’re powerful, hard to resist and they tend to make me want to do things that will later on get me into some sort of trouble. These days im just ignoring them to the best of my ability. If i choose to do as they say they become more frequent, but I know pretty sure that following what these thoughts will slowly get me into their control again and it’s a battle trying to snap out of it later on. Also what suggests toward demons is that they feel good and very tempting and the thoughts try to justify along with a good feeling of why it’s not harmful behaviour yo myself and others.

To give you an example is to try and manipulate someone without asking just as me. They’re always selfish but try to make me not think of it as selfish. It”s very hard to describe but it can be anything I defininately don’t want to do. I don’t know the exact word for it in english but it’s always along the lines of “come oon it’s not that bad”. They make my head a mess and sometimes it’s hard to tell whether it’s my own thought or not. They can even be murderous pure evil thoughts with foul language. And it’s as if the thought is trying to trick me into believing it came from me when I had no such intention in my head. When I’m tired or doing sports it’s more frequent and that can also come from ny own fear cuz I know now I’m weakened and easy to attackbwhen I’m not concentrating. It’s very confusing and sometimes I get confused to the point I where it’s hard to tell who I am anymore.

I say for example in my mind “my spirit is not for an evil spirit” and there is a thought which is trying to be timed mid-sentence to make the sentence be “my spirit is not for the holy spirit”. Also when i say in my mind i love lord jesus christ a thought is trying to be timed to make the sentence be “my lord satan”. This is starting to be pretty serious soil. I’m not scared though, something is keeping me calm through this. Before I would have freaked out and started to walk around the house in doubt, fear and terror, this time around I’m not.

Maybe it’s because of you and Pam, I know there is still hope.

Martii’s captivity is only one example that could very well be a global classic.

Martii contacted me after reading my one and only blog on the dangers of opening the chakras. He had been searching for a few years to find a deliverance minister who could set him free. he called me from Finland.

Here is more of MARTII’S personal testimony:

. Let me tell you. They can somehow do something which affects my ability to believe. One demon was in my forehead casting some energy while another one was at the throat. They staged even fake crying and fake emotion.

They faked freedom by truth with both my throat and forehead chakras under their control, creating an illusion so strong I just couldn’t help it.

it made 0 sense but they staged a false rebirth.

This was so well planned I had no idea they could pull something like this off.

    They pretended to be me so well that I didn’t notice it wasn’t me thinking

.
Also that anger toward God earlier with the blasphemy and all that.., they pretended that aswell.
It was a trick to make me believe I was supressing “my anger” toward God and that I needed to get out so that I would be truthful LoLoLolOLOoO d., while all the while they caused all that.

Their tricks are unbelievable.

Generally, I don’t take more than 15 minutes to cast out demons, which also includes my prayers and affirmations. On October 14, 2013, with me in New York and Martii in Finland, we were on a 7 hour time difference, 4 pm for me and 11 pm for him. I open up as I usually do, with a bit of counseling and prayer. Once I started to confront the demons in each chakra, it was 47 minutes of horrible sounding manifestations that rival the fake sounds of Hollywood’s best Satanic horror movie—only this was real and no staged. it is on audio tap so if any one wants to hear it, I have Martii”s permission to share the audio I with you.

It did not stop there. Martii  is continuing to manifest even after we hung up he phone. nine days Later, Mike wrote this:

Two more demons left from my forehead and throat, today, Oct. 23. … well i hope that is the last of those two, they’ve been messing with me for too long. This is making me me wonder… jjst how many demons did I have? This looks like it could be from tens to hundreds.

From what I heard over that phone, it’s got to be in the hundreds. What is not clear to Martii is that it was nothing but the name and the blood of Jesus Christ that is setting him free. It has been revealed to me that Martii will be completely free in 30 days. Truth has yet a job to do on Martii.

If any of you have opened up your chakras in strange mystical ways of entering an altered state of consciousness, you need to call me at 518-477-4759. just ask for Pam Sheppard.

A Quiet Deliverance: Goodbye Vahni!!!

11 Oct

By Carol A. Davis

As RESCUE members know, I grew up in a Charismatic church. From childhood, I accepted signs and wonders as a normal thing, because it was the first thing I knew; however, it had always bothered me that I never seemed to have any of the “religious experiences” and manifestations my family members and others around me did. I was jealous and felt left out. I’d never spoken in tongues, fallen slain in the Spirit, felt that feeling of “warmth, love, and peace,” heard God’s voice, had anyone tell me they had a “word from God” for me, saw visions, or saw demons and made them leave in the name of Jesus, etc. I thought I was doing something wrong, like not surrendering to God enough, or what they call “seeking Him” enough, or else, maybe God just didn’t have any particular reason to talk to me or manifest to me in that way. I felt kind of inadequate, or at least picked over.

Back in ’93 I started hearing about the Brownsville Revival. A friend from church always talked about it, because she had been several times. She talked about how awesome it was, how strong the “anointing would fall,” and how you would receive a “life-changing touch from God.” Some people from our church started taking road trips there. They’d have to camp out in line all day, get there at 6 a.m., like it was an American Idol audition or something, because the building could only accommodate so many. One week, Steve Hill, John Kilpatrick, and Lendell Cooley actually came to Alabama and held a revival service in a nearby city, as well as a pastor’s conference. Ministers from our church took part, and my friend and I also got to go to the pastor’s conference because her dad was working there.

A lot of people had traveled from churches in neighboring cities to take part. The night before the first revival service – although the details of when and where are fuzzy, it so was long ago – my friend and I attended a service at a nearby Assemblies of God church, which we’d been invited to by some of the people who were participating in the Brownsville conference. It was at this service that, for the first time, I experienced being slain in the spirit, speaking in tongues, and having the manifestation of this “jerking” motion from the mid-section. You’d be standing up, but keep doubling over, like how a person would if they were struggling to catch their breath, or had just been punched in the stomach, only there was no pain at all – just an involuntary contraction of the muscles in your midsection. Everybody else did it too.I was so incredibly happy! I felt that I was finally “there,” and that maybe God was finally pleased with me enough to actually manifest. The next night at the Brownsville service, it happened even stronger. From that point on, it would happen anytime I was in a praise and worship service, praying, listening to praise and worship music, if I was listening to a sermon or even watching one on tv, especially if a certain statement really “spoke to me,” and often when I would simply think about God.

Since joining RESCUE and learning what I know now about the kundalini spirits and the counterfeit Holy Ghost manifestations, I put two-and-two together and began to realize this could not be a manifestation from God. What was strange was that it hadn’t happened in a few years, but from the time I joined RESCUE, suddenly it started happening again at random times, more than it ever had in the past. The more I learned, the more it would bother me. I didn’t want it anymore. I had rejected all of those past religious experiences and recognized them for what they really were, yet it kept happening. I couldn’t control it. Even though I wasn’t completely sure if it was specifically the kundalini spirit of Bahni or some other evil entity, I knew it was some kind of demon because of where I’d been when it first entered. Also, it had begun dawning on me that all those years I had thought I was born-again I really wasn’t – even when I was working in stripclubs and doing all types of things, I thought I was still saved, and that thing happened all the time even then. So I realized, between the Church of God experience and all the sin in my life, whatever it was, it couldn’t possibly have been the Holy Spirit and was something I didn’t want.

So last month I was on a phone session with Pam. She asked what I wanted to talk about, and I brought that up, saying it bothered me and I wanted it to stop. She asked if I had ever addressed the spirit since realizing what it was, and I told her, yes, that at one point in the past few weeks, when the jerking had happened, I had spoken to it. I’d known better than to try to cast it out, so I had just calmly stated something to the effect of, “Look, I don’t know exactly who or what you are, but I know you’re not the Holy Spirit, you are a demon, and I don’t want you. Everything I accepted in those past services I am now renouncing. Sooner or later you’ll have no choice but to leave, whether it’s through a deliverance session with Pam, or some other means. The bottom line is, whether you leave now or later, your days are numbered.” I hadn’t’ said it in a forceful or disrespectful way, because I’d been warned and knew better than to try to cast out a demon if I wasn’t saved, or to say anything that they could take as a challenge, so I’d said it in a cautious way, but still make it official where I stood. To my disappointment, there was no change and it had continued  happening.

So when I was on the phone with Pam telling her about it, she asked if I wanted her to address this spirit. I said yes. We didn’t do a full-out deliverance session or anything like that, she simply addressed the navel chakra  by the  name of its deity , Vahni, and told it to leave. I was half-scared of, yet half-hoping for, some kind of manifestation, because I really wanted it to leave and to know for sure it had gone. She asked if I’d felt any kind of manifestation, and I said no. I was actually disappointed. Looking back, I see that there was still a residue of my old way of thinking, of always looking for signs and wonders. Because I’d experienced no manifestation, in my twisted line of thinking, I took that to mean the entity was still there. I figured, “Oh, well… it will be gone one day, so I’ll just stop worrying about it for now.” I kind of quit paying attention to or thinking about it.

After a couple of weeks, it dawned on me that it had not happened anymore. It still hasn’t happened since. Funny thing is, Pam doesn’t even remember speaking to it! Maybe because it wasn’t a full-out  deliverance session or anything; she just simply addressed it, and that was that.

Since becoming undeceived – the more and more I’ve reflected over the last 20 years of my life, and how the teachings I accepted in the Charismatic church have literally, in some ways, ruined my family’s life and my life – I’ve become more and more disgusted with those past teachings and experiences. That was why it bothered me so much for those manifestations to still be there. I wanted no parts of anything from that period of my life and just wanted all of it to be gone. I’m so happy now to be free from that and am so grateful to Pam what she did!

Pam, can’t thank you enough for all you’ve done to help me!

Mental Illness: Organic or Demonic?

26 Aug

By Carol A. Davis

On the subject of whether or not demons cause mental illness and whether the person can be healed if they are cast out, I’d like to share my thoughts, not from the perspective of someone who knows anything about demonic activity, but as someone who suffers from mental illness. I have three hypotheses based on my experience, as well as things I’ve read and been told by doctors. I’m completely open to the possibility that I could be wrong on all of them.

1. I think sometimes it can be a real illness not caused by demons:

I understand that there are “functional” diseases and “organic” diseases. True, severe mental illness is organic. From what I’ve read, for instance, regular depression can be functional, meaning it could be cured with therapy, short-term medications, etc. Any minor damage to nerve-connections, or a slightly damaged hippocampus, etc., can regenerate, and there may not even be any physical damage to the brain at all. Major depression is organic. There is a permanent defect and/or damage to the brain tissue. Counseling or minor drugs can’t treat that any more than they could treat amnesia caused by a car wreck.

People who are truly mentally ill will have physiological differences in their brains, either genetically inherited or caused by some type of damage. For instance, PTSD is caused by severe emotional trauma that actually causes physical damage to the brain. A person could receive a head injury and begin suffering from a mental illness. These differences will show up in CT scans and autopsies; however, a mentally ill person can only be diagnosed based on his/her behavior. A doctor can’t cut open the patient’s brain to see if, say, the person doesn’t have enough gray matter somewhere or has an atrophied hippocampus, but the dr. still has to treat the patient in whatever way possible, based on whatever he/she has to go on.

I think that when this is the case, casting out a demon won’t help, any more than casting a demon out of a person who is missing a leg will cause that leg to grow back.

2. I think sometimes it is purely a demon. I think a person could have a perfectly normal brain but still suffer from the symptoms of a mental illness, b/c a demon is causing it. If a person is diagnosed as bipolar because of violent mood swings, if a demon is causing it, then he or she is not really bipolar. They will still receive a bipolar diagnosis, b/c the dr. can’t cut open their brain to see that, and brain scans cannot be used to diagnose mental illness. So if the person gets a demon cast out and then suddenly becomes normal, it makes it look as if every case of mental illness can be remedied in the same way. If deliverance doesn’t work on someone else who truly has the illness, it makes it look like it’s just because of some demon that hasn’t come out yet.

3. I think sometimes it could be both. If a person has a neurological predisposition to hallucinate, I think a demon could have a field day with this and make sure the person’s hallucinations are of the worst kind, and use them to make the person worse, or want to harm themselves or others. Maybe if that demon gets cast out, it will improve somewhat, simply b/c their symptoms won’t be as bad as what the demon aggravated them to be. In that case, it could make it look like some of the demons had been cast out, but just not all of them yet, since it worked, just not all the way.

I believe the cause of a mental illness in general, whether organic or demonic, is difficult to judge, simply because the two variables cannot be seen with the naked eye. You can’t see demons, and you can’t see into someone’s brain without either killing them or performing a non-justified brain surgery. That leaves it open to all types of different conclusions, and none of it seems cut and dried.

I’m going to give an example using ADHD (People disagree on whether it should be called a “mental illness,” but it’s still a good example of the principle). A lot of people diagnosed as ADHD are not really ADHD, b/c their hyper behavior is caused by something else. I believe a demon can cause a person’s mind to race, cause them to be frantic, etc. If that person’s brain has a normal amount of gray matter along with other things I can’t spell or pronounce, the person doesn’t really have ADHD. If something else is causing the behavior, and that thing gets better, whether it was a demon or something else, it will look like the person “recovered” from the ADHD they never had in the first place.

I’ve had Charismatic deliverance ministers try to cast ADHD demons out of me. I’ve had people tell me they “used to have ADD” but “outgrew” it. That means they never had it in the first place – they were just hyper. Maybe another mental illness such as depression, or a trauma, or too much sugar caused the behavior. Maybe it was a demon; or maybe their case was mild enough to learn to cope with and contain. Whatever it was, it wasn’t ADHD.

If a person truly has ADHD, there will be other traits caused by the same brain difference which aren’t necessarily considered bad, or noticeable. For instance, the same brain differences that cause ADD also cause “hyperfocus” in certain areas, which is considered a good thing. I have this. A person who doesn’t really have ADD won’t. So many people, such as college students, take Adderall or Ritalin to study. Those drugs will make any normal person a concentration powerhouse, b/c that persons brain already has the ability to make enough dopamine and norepinephrine, so the boost the drug gives is just a surplus, a bonus. I have to take Adderall just to come up to the level of a normal, dumb kid, LOL! Alcohol helps me concentrate, when it makes other people dumber. People who don’t have the other brain traits, but are misdiagnosed as having ADHD & then recover or “overcome” it, now they’re looking at me like, “What’s wrong with you then? I overcame it. Why can’t you?

I am bipolar, ADHD, and have major depression. Growing up in the Charismatic church where everything is a “demon” or a “demonic stronghold,” I was very emotionally damaged by this belief. I’m “using it as a crutch,” “lazy,” “just dumb,” or have demons that won’t leave because I refuse to stop sinning or renounce some kind of occultic activity. There were times I was advised to try to come down on my meds, because I was making good progress with demons being cast out, or “the Lord told” somebody He had delivered me. Following this advice, on two occasions, came close to costing me my life.

So overall, I’m all for uncovering and dealing with every possible demon a person has. I would be overjoyed to find out my bipolarity, ADHD, and whatever, is caused by a demon. Demons can be cast out. A messed up brain can’t. I’m open to that being a possibility and don’t rule it out. It would be great to actually get the stuff cast out, so I could qualify for health insurance, save thousands a year on medicine and psych visits, to be able to work like normal people and have more money, and be able to tell people what I do for a living when they ask.

But now that I’m becoming undeceived from all the junk I learned in the Charismatic church, I’m also better able to cope with the fact that this may not go away. As long as you’re treated and medicated, it’s not that bad. If it cannot be cast out, I can deal with it. If it can, even better!
