IS POSITIVE THINKING BIBLICAL?

12 May

“For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he” Proverbs 23:7

What interpretation do you have about this verse? I was taught that this verse spoke on how I can shape my reality by what I think, that our thoughts have the power to alter our lives, and that we can make ourselves what we want to be.

But does this verse really teach about the power of our thoughts?

While detoxing from religion, one of the main things I learned  is that It’s important at all times to consider the context of a bible verse. Some factors to look into when reading the bible is  to consider who is the target audience and whether or not  the writer was speaking (referring) to someone specific . To assume that every verse written is personally directed to you is a dangerous way of reading the bible.

It’s also good to have an idea of the historical & cultural context of a particular verse. The question to ask is whether or not the passage of scripture is relevant to present day living.

Let’s look at the verse in relation to the rest of the chapter.

Proverbs 23:1-8

1. When thou sittest to eat with a ruler, consider diligently what is before thee:
2 And put a knife to thy throat, if thou be a man given to appetite.
3 Be not desirous of his dainties: for they are deceitful meat.
4 Labour not to be rich: cease from thine own wisdom.
5 Wilt thou set thine eyes upon that which is not? for riches certainly make themselves wings; they fly away as an eagle toward heaven.
6 Eat thou not the bread of him that hath an evil eye, neither desire thou his dainty meats:
7 For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he: Eat and drink, saith he to thee; but his heart is not with thee.
8 The morsel which thou hast eaten shalt thou vomit up, and lose thy sweet words.

The writer was advising someone that even though this person says “Eat & drink”, be careful not to assume that he is a generous man.  For the words coming out of his mouth may not match what’s in his heart.  why?  because “his heart is not with thee”.

Do not be fooled by the words and generous acts of someone, If  the generosity doesn’t come from the heart, then he is not a generous person. He acts a certain way because he has evil motives.

So within the context of scripture, it becomes clear that the verse has nothing to do with positive thinking or the power of the mind.  Rather, it is addressing hypocrisy. Simply put, people can outwardly act a certain way but their true character is what is in their heart.

So where did this verse get linked to power of thought?

In 1903 a book titled “As a man thinketh” was published by the author James Allen.

James Allen was a British philosophical writer and considered a pioneer of the self-help movement in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. His best known work is the book “As a Man Thinketh” which is likely based on the Biblical verse Proverbs 23:7 which states: “For as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.

Some quotes from his book

“A man is literally what he thinks, his character being the complete sum of all his thoughts.”

“As a being of Power, Intelligence, and Love, and the lord of his own thoughts, man holds the key to every situation, and contains within himself that transforming and regenerative agency by which he may make himself what he wills.”

“If he will link cause and effect by patient practice and investigation….. As a means of obtaining that knowledge of himself. “He that seeketh findeth; and to him that knocketh it shall be opened”; for only by patience, practice, and ceaseless importunity can a man enter the Door of the Temple of Knowledge.”

The book primarily teaches that man is self-sufficient to transform his situations, its starts in the mind and everything else follows.

One of the deceptions that is rampant is believing everything that comes from the devil must have a negative connotation to it. If a teaching is meant to help you become better, the assumption is that there’s no way it came from the devil, based upon a belief  that the devil doesn’t want you to be the best you can be! This is not true! The devil is the author of many positive teachings that might even produce some beneficial  effects in your life. Nevertheless, that’s a part of the trap,—to make you believe you are embracing something great when you are actually been set up to be demonized.

The church has joined in teaching the power of positive thinking, notably Joel Osteen, Joyce Meyer, TD Jakes to name a few; many ministers cherry pick verses to back this false doctrine by teaching that  if people remain positive and grateful,  their situations will change for the better.

It’s alarming that the church has endorsed a teaching that originates from ripping Proverbs 23:7 completely out of context.

By their fruits, you shall know them

What fruits come from this teaching?

It denies people the opportunity to listen to the gospel – instead of people listening to the true gospel of Jesus Christ; they go to church to receive a pep talk telling them that even though they are facing challenges, they can turn it around. How will people know the gospel when they are not even hearing it to begin with? And when they do hear the gospel, it’s a different version that asks them to accept Jesus into their heart.

People are being taught techniques on how to change their thinking from negative to positive with the help of certain activities such as meditation – a practice that facilitates entrance into an altered state of consciousness (ASC). An altered state causes peoples’ chakras to be open & for demons to enter. Pastor Pam has several blogs & videos teaching on how Christians have been deceived into opening their chakras and getting demonized, you can read more on this at:-

Christians Who Open the 7 Chakras Are Demonized!

Also the topic is covered extensively in the book “The Church of the Endtime Zombies”. The link for the paperback & e-book are listed below.

bookcover_zombies

This teaching is also very focused on self & that the power to change is inside of you. Romans 3:23 states that all have fallen short, so we don’t have the power to make ourselves clean from sin, we cannot cause out spirits to be born again by positive thinking. There are some changes people can make in their lives for the better but being born again is something that only the Holy Spirit can do.

This belief in the unregenerated self has given rise to people referring to themselves as “I AM” with views that since humans are made in the image of God,  that we are little gods, another false teaching.

Reading a bible verse in its proper context is crucial in the times we live in, it’s easy to be carried away by false doctrine if you don’t question or challenge what you are taught. “As a man thinketh so is he” addresses hypocrisy not the power of our thoughts.

Which Jesus Are You Worshiping? Is It the Fake Jesus?

15 Apr

“However, when the Son of Man comes, will he find faith on the earth?”
Luke 18:8

download (1)

There are some statements & questions Jesus has said or asked that I have struggled with for years. I want to focus on this question during this Easter weekend as millions of Christians around the world celebrate the death, burial & Resurrection of Jesus Christ.

I grew up in the catholic church where I was initially introduced to Jesus. He was a partially naked man wearing a crown of thorns on his head, he seemed dead as he hang lifeless on the cross.

Catholic recitals & traditional prayers gave me more information on this Jesus. He was a redeemer & the one you ask forgiveness from because he died to cleanse us from our sins. But there was a catch, he could only forgive us through the help of Mary, the Father or the angels. Some samples of the prayers went like this

I know my sins have wounded Thy Tender Heart,
O My Savior, let me be freed from the bonds of evil through
the most bitter Passion of My Redeemer. Amen.

…O my God, in union with the Immaculate Heart of Mary
[kiss your Scapular)I offer Thee the Precious
Blood of Jesus from all the altars throughout the world…

O JESUS, through the Immaculate Heart of Mary, I offer You my prayers,

O MOST MERCIFUL JESUS, lover of souls,
I beseech Thee, by the agony of Thy most Sacred Heart,
and by the sorrows of Thine Immaculate Mother,
wash clean in the Thy Blood the sinners of the whole world
who are to die this day

The Jesus I learnt about wasn’t sovereign & above influence, he was a God who got his feelings hurt if I sinned, he needed help to redeem people and had to work in collaboration with almost everyone to just redeem one individual.

I had to perform a lot of confessions as well, as God was almost angry all the time, I had to engage in church practices to soothe him & continually recite prayers to Mary to calm him down. In the process I got stressed and developed OCD tendencies such as repeating menial tasks.

In my teen years, I moved to the Protestant church and met a different Jesus, this one loved more and was easier to get along with. After inviting him into my heart and feeling sensations of love moving in my chest, I felt loved for the first time. I’ve since learnt that love is not a feeling, its in action but that’s another topic.

Feeling that I had finally met the real Jesus, I settled in church and became active in prayer meetings, choir practice, intercessors group etc. I came to find out almost immediately that this Jesus was worse than the one in the catholic church. The demonic attacks started from inappropriate sexual thoughts about Jesus. Hindsight is 20/20 because as I look back, those thoughts distressed me greatly, I never enjoyed them so how could they have come from me? Demons were projecting these thoughts into my mind & they had the right to my mind since I said the sinners prayers and let them in.

I analyze this Jesus I was worshiping and things don’t add up:-

Appearance

th

How can someone who lived in Palestine in the 1st century have pale skin, blue eyes? am not claiming Jesus as black either but lets be real here and put our pride aside, something that is hard to do as all races engage in some form of racial pride. But for those who seek truth, you should ask yourself where did this image come from & does it match the people who lived in that area, at that time.

Redeemer

download (1)

How can a redeemer need help to save you? He either has the power to redeem you or he doesn’t, this is not a team effort where everyone needs to chip in. The teaching of Jesus having a co-redeemer in Mary and other people is a false teaching.

He also asks to be invited into your heart, and that is dangerous as much as it seems simple. Demons can only enter your life when you give them the right to be there, so they trick many to let them in by masquerading as God. Jesus never said anything about entering our hearts. Jesus is seated at the right hand of the Father and not entering hearts, an imposter is doing that.

Sovereignty

Jesus rose up from the dead victoriously defeating sin & death for his chosen people, yet the Institutional church talks about him continually crying and hurting over our sins. How? Jesus said the gates of hell will not prevail on his church & his church is not the institutional church but the believers from the 1st century to now.

When I joined RESCUE, Pastor Pam armed me with information that delivered me from the fake Jesus and gave me healing in my mind from all the assault I went through in the catholic & protestant churches. All those years in the institutional church and I didn’t even know the real Jesus!!

I was worshiping the fake Jesus and the rotten fruits were evident – lack of spiritual growth, not understanding the bible, demonic attacks, mental deterioration to name a few.

When you see the mega churches, crusades where millions go forward & accept Jesus, Christian TV, you can think wow! The church of Jesus is growing but which Jesus because there are many. I think Jesus was giving a clue in that question as well. Don’t be fooled by anything labeled “christian” or “Jesus”

As we celebrate the death & Resurrection of Jesus during this weekend, lets be sober and question long held beliefs & one of the questions is which Jesus are you worshiping?

For those who don’t even know where to start, get a copy of the Fake Jesus, this book was the beginning of my own deliverance and helped me get to know the real Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

Free From Demonic Torment

1 Feb

A personal testimony from a RESCUE member on her journey to deliverance and freedom in Christ. 

blog_47 

From birth to the age of 16, i was raised in a catholic home. It wasn’t a strict catholic upbringing but we went to mass every Sunday, participated in Bible Study and confession regularly. My catholic life was dry for the most part, the only time i had a supernatural experience was one time i had to go do my confession to a priest in order for the church to give me the sacrament of confirmation which was to signify that i have been filled with the Holy Spirit and now worthy to receive the body & blood of Jesus which was the wafer and wine offered during mass.

I was dreading my walk to the church due to a number of reasons, first, I was naturally a fearful person, the church was also located in a neighborhood that wasn’t very safe, i remember my heart racing and a strong urge to not go for the confession but i thought that was the devil deterring me from being filled by the Holy Spirit. I went to the church and confessed my sins, even during confession, i lied and made up sins that i didn’t even do. The priest told me to repeat the hail mary & the Lord’s prayer several times and he declared me absolutely clean. I felt this amazing sense of peace and joy. The girl walking back home was confident and happy and sure that she had received the Holy Ghost, the truth is i didn’t by a simple teaching from Jesus, “you shall know them by their fruits.” 

My feelings of joy and peace didn’t last long, there was no substantial change in my spiritual life, it was still dry and full of rituals. My fear increased greatly. I resigned myself to thinking this is how spiritual life is, many adults weren’t living holy as they claimed. I was initially exposed to hypocrisy in the church while being catholic, it used to bother me that the “spiritual giants” used to gossip and be mean to fellow church goers. I was a child and raised not to question adults so i kept this question to myself and remained troubled over it.

FALSE CONVERSION

In 2000, I was 16 and in high school where a church group visited and we were shown an “End time” movie. They later explained how many will be be-headed and suffer when they miss the rapture. We were also threatened with the prospect of dying & going to hell, where people burn forever. I panicked and rushed forward to say the sinner’s prayer which was supposed to allow Jesus to enter my heart and seal me with eternal life in heaven. I thought I received Jesus Christ of Nazareth but red flags started popping up immediately.

  1. First red flag was that I started suffering from sexual thoughts about Jesus, the thoughts felt like a blow to my mind, I would fight back to stop the thought from continuing. I suffered in silence, very embarrassed and thought i was a very lustful person. I cried for forgiveness constantly hoping God wont be angry with me.
  2. Second red flag was the constant cuss words in my mind directed towards God the Father and the Holy Spirit. One time during a prayer meeting, i felt a strong force pushing me to open my mouth and hurl obscenities, i held my mouth tight, waiting anxiously for the meeting to end so i can run out.
  3. I got a dream where i was surrounded by strange looking creatures, in the dream i realized they were demons and all of them stared at me intently, they all looked ready to attack especially one that looked like an anaconda. I wondered why they didn’t attack, but as i looked out the corner of my right eye, i saw a man dressed in white. I thought that was Jesus of Nazareth protecting me but during my counselling it became evident to me that dream was showing me the fake Jesus and his demons who have entered my life.

TORMENT

I was always a fearful person and this increased after getting “saved.” Every night i would perform a ritual of anointing myself, the bed, and room before i slept. I was afraid of death, torture, nightmares and demons attacking me while i slept. Listening to worship songs, sermons and anointing the vicinity gave some comfort but the results were short lived. I started taking sleeping pills after a family tragedy to try and get some sleep but my sleep pattern was ruined, i suffered from insomnia and constant fatigue.

Things took a turn for the worse in 2004 when I was asleep alone in my room and a spirit touched my private part. I woke up in complete shock, it felt like a complete invasion of privacy, I wasn’t safe in my own home. All the doors were locked, the windows were shut but yet i was attacked. My fear grew tremendously because the demons taunting me made me know there was more to come. I didn’t share this with anyone because i never heard other people suffering from this. I felt ashamed, embarrassed, and felt sad for myself, wondering who could help me, i prayed, read the bible, went to church but baffled as to why this was happening. I engaged in a lot of prayer meetings where we would recite Cindy Trimm prayers from her book, binding demons and releasing angels. I would feel pumped after a prayer session but as always, the feelings were short lived.

I was filled with anxiety before going to bed, making sure i slept with the lights on, slept in certain positions, played christian music hoping that i wouldst get sexually or physically assaulted. All the while i showed other people that i was as normal as i can be, yet i was falling apart on the inside.

In 2013/2014 the night visits became weekly and the demons were becoming more bold in their attacks, I’ve been slapped and had my private parts fondled. I suffered from sleep paralysis as well. By mid 2014 i finally acknowledged i was in trouble as the years of torment were adding up, also the attacks were getting more frequent and more deadly. I started to feel my mind slip and knew if i don’t get help soon, the situation will turn critical. 

HOW I MET PAM SHEPPARD

I was restless, i could feel i was at a turning point in my life, a feeling like i was at the edge and almost about to fall off. I listened to more TD Jakes sermons, then moved to G Craige Lewis. My thinking was to combat demonic attacks with more religious ritual, i was so blind and couldn’t see that the more i engaged in religion, the worse the attacks became. I wrongly thought that the rituals – reading the bible, listening to sermons & christian music helped lessen the intensity of these attacks, if i stopped them, the attacks would become much worse. I was completely blind!

I always searched various christian topics on the web, i literally stumbled on Pam Sheppard’s blog and the topic was on sexual acts that would defile a marriage. I found her take on the topic interesting and it led me to read more topics she had covered on her blog. As i read her blogs about the Institutional Church (I.C.) having been taken over by fallen angels, i was shocked yet intrigued because she was answering all the questions i had while being in the church. 

Through reading more posts from Pastor Pam i found a video she did on “Spirit Rape” where she spoke on women experiencing visitation from spirits which would engage in sexual acts with them, she finished the video by saying if this is happening to you, you are not born again. I tried to ignore the last part but the torment caused me to realize something is terribly wrong and its time to get some answers. I knew my time to face the truth had arrived.

EMOTIONS

For the longest time i struggled with low self esteem. I would cry for no reason and always find something to worry about and when the situation was resolved, i would look for the next issue to stress about. My emotions were determined by outside factors and other people, i bought into the labels society, family and church gave me.

Growing up in Africa as a black person, my ethnicity was never an issue. I never felt inferior as a black person. I knew what the world thinks of Africa and Africans in general but it never affected me in my day to day life. When i moved to North America, i felt my blackness and it wasn’t good, i felt inferior and any incident where someone would be rude or dismissive would affect me greatly since i wanted other people to validate me since i had no identity.

i was chained to standards set by other people e.g. Ethnic stereotypes, church views that women can’t be pastors, a woman is not valuable to society if she is not married or have children. My bias against women pastors almost led me not to listen to Pam but i stayed and listened because my torment was greater than my opinions and it humbled me to a point i was ready to listen and i thank God for making it that way otherwise my pride would have made me walk away.

DELIVERANCE PROCESS

Before i started my counselling sessions with Pam, i thought deliverance was a pastor shouting at a demon to come out as the captive manifests and rolls on the ground shouting. My view on deliverance was very different from what it really is. I watched several of Pastor Pam’s videos and read her blogs, after a couple of days i sent her an email stating that I felt i had a false conversion and needed help. I filled out a Deliverance form which helped me go down memory lane in my life and it helped me through the counselling process as Pam could look through the forms and see the doorways I had opened to the demons that were harassing me.

I learnt lot and discovered that i had a false conversion  which we broke. My will was weak and passive and needed to be built up. I also learnt of ancestral demons that affect people of African background and how to break any covenants that i would have been a part of. My biggest challenge was to stop religious rituals that i was used to, but my desire to be free was greater and the more i learnt, the more i saw what i was doing was putting me in more danger. 

Pam has a huge resource through the blogs, videos, books, phone sessions and the online ministry group which i am a part of. All of these have helped me overcome so many strongholds. 

RESCUE

As the Psalmist says Psalm 18:29 With your help I can advance against a troop; with my God I can scale a wall. That has been my experience with Pam Sheppard and RESCUE. I learnt how to break my false conversion, build up my free will and not allow my emotions to control my actions. Views that held me in chains for years have been broken, i know my value and i get my identity from me, not what outsiders say. I have learnt my personality and know myself better than i have in years which has led to better decision making. I have learnt how to distinguish a spiritual issue from a non-spiritual issue. The torment i suffered for years has stopped! The shame i felt was removed when i realized i had been tricked into worshiping the fake Jesus and others have suffered the same issues i faced. I’m gaining a respect for God, something i never had while religious, i look back and see he has been guiding and protecting me even when i was an idolater. I have seen God’s mercy and compassion firsthand when he led me to Pam Sheppard, his faithful servant. I have gained so much yet i am thrilled because there is more to come, I am now waiting to be born again which will happen at the Holy Spirit’s timing.

Jesus warns his people in Rev 18:4 Come out of her, my people, lest you share in her sins and lest you receive her plagues.

I have single handedly seen and experienced the plagues in the Institutional Church, my story shows God`s mercy towards to me because even though i was suffering from the plagues, i still couldn’t see that being in the I.C. was the problem. God lifted the veil during my counselling process and i finally understood why i was suffering and why i had to leave. I walk in freedom now and can fully relate to Jesus words that, `you will know the truth and it will make you free.

Eddie Long & the Church

15 Jan

eddie-long

Eddie Long declared that he was back and healed at his church during his pastoral anniversary service on Oct. 9, 2016. He also asked for church members to move forward to the pulpit and receive healing so that he could lay his hands on them. . It has now been announced that Eddie has passed away today and it was from an aggressive form of cancer. His death  will probably leave many church goers puzzled, disillusioned and needing answers wondering does God still heal? does deliverance & the power of God still exist? Why was Eddie not healed even when he claimed he was as the prosperity gospel teaches? 

Deliverance, healing still occurs, people are even becoming born again BUT this is not happening in the church but outside of Her.

In Re. 18;4, the Lord Himself declared “Come Out of Her, My People.” my pastor, Pam Sheppard challenges the elect of God  to ask themselves 3 simple questions concerning the Lord’s warning, as follows:

1.  Where are “God’s People?”

Could the scriptures be referring to a particular nation or country? No. God’s people are in every nation. Even though America claims to be a Christian, people of diverse persuasions can agree on this one point, namely, that America is really NOT a Christian nation.  Let’s face it. The universal place where God’s people assemble for worship is “in the organized church.” It’s the only place that makes sense. In this day and time, without a passport and finances, who can walk out of their native country very easily and re-locate elsewhere? In truth, mass exodus from anywhere today is practically impossible. Jesus would not command us to do the impossible.

However, anywhere in the world, we can come out of the organized church by simply no longer attending.

2.  What generation of God’s people is Jesus speaking to?

Most of the book of Revelation is about the end of the church age. If the 7 churches in the book of Revelation represent chronological symbols of church ages throughout history, then Jesus is talking to the final generation, the church at Laodicea.  It’s a no-brainer that no other church era on earth could top our own generation in a claim to be “rich and in need of nothing.” (Revelation 3:17)

3.   Are we at the end of the church age?

For all intents and purposes, if we are the church at Laodicea, where those who preach the prosperity gospel actually DO brag on how rich they are, spiritual blindness is clearly and undeniably rampant. When churchgoers haven’t a clue as to the meaning of repentance, rebirth and the resurrection and therein believe that they are saved but they are not, what could be a stronger sign that “we are near or even at the end of the church age?

So if you answer in the affirmative to all 3 questions, then Jesus has spoken to YOU! He is warning you at this very moment to come out of the organized church, and if you don’t, you are going to receive of her plagues.  You don’t have to be a bible scholar, a prophet or even a rocket scientist to answer these 3 questions. Once you have your answer, then if you are a true believer in Jesus Christ, you will know, without a shadow of a doubt that you must “come out of Her.”

In a nutshell, ONE primary reason stands out above all others that should be enough for the elect to decide to come out of Her. It’s because fallen angels—religious devils—have infiltrated the entire church system. Certainly, they have no part in the true Body of Christ because the real “church” is not a building made with hands. However, through compromise and doctrinal distortions of all kinds, there is an invisible, imposter god undergirding every edifice, regardless of how sincere and faithful the leadership.

Consequently, if you are unknowingly worshiping an imposter, then you are unknowingly practicing idolatry and breaking the 10 Commandments. The punishment for idolatry is a release of the curses or “the plagues.” (Deuteronomy 28) When judgment falls, churchgoers will not be able to find the secret place of the Most High, nor abide under the shadow of the Almighty. Paul warned the Corinthians that they should “flee fornication.” In the spirit, fornication is idolatry. In the words of Klein and Spears in their book “Devils and Demons,” these co-authors offer the elect some sober and sound advice:

We need to run, not walk—-as fast as we can and as far away as we can get—from any devils and demons that masquerade as our great God of the Universe.”

Putting my interpretation of who actually is “Her” of Revelation 18:4, I have also considered several other scriptures in both testaments. For example, in the old testament, whenever the Father referred to the idolatry of the children of Israel, He used symbols of gender, with Himself as masculine and His people as feminine. In fact, God command the prophet Hosea to marry an adulterous woman to stand as a metaphorical comparison of Himself and the children of Israel’s practicing the religions of heathen nations. (Hosea 1:1-3)

Similarly, Jesus is the metaphorical Bridegroom while the elect—His people—are the Bride. In both testaments, idolatry is synonymous with fornication or sex outside of marriage. When God’s people practiced a false religion, it is written that they “went a whoring.” In the new testament, the Lord chided the first church at Ephesus with a gender based reproach when He warned “you have lost your first love.” (Rev.2:4) In response to the idolatry in the church at Thyatira, the Lord declared yet another gender based statement with “I’ll cast you into a bed and them that commit adultery with her into great tribulation, except they repent of their deeds. (Rev. 2:20-22)

There are several more examples that in themselves could be the subject of a book or two, particularly “the Songs of Solomon.” In keeping with the biblical pattern, it stands to reason that in our times, the “Her” of Revelation 18:4 is an idolatrous religion practiced predominately behind church walls.

Playing the devil’s advocate with yet another question posed in an attempt to try the spirits to see if they be of God, I asked myself the following questions: : Suppose I am completely wrong and I have absolutely misinterpreted the scriptures and the “Her” in Revelation
18:4 is really NOT the organized church? To that, my response is “I will have lost nothing because I gained absolutely nothing from the church except error and deception.”

More telling words from Pastor Pam:

As I look back in order to present my decades of spiritual history within a well known denominational system,” chapters 2 to 6 will progressively unfold that not only did the organized church have nothing at all to do with my salvation or my spiritual edification, but in fact, the entire religious system served as an enemy to my soul. A root in dry ground, I did more than merely survive. Showered with God’s grace and mercy, I actually thrived in a dark, un-nurturing place— a spiritually dangerous, hostile spiritual environment. If God Himself had not been on my side, I am convinced that I would have withered on the vine and died—spirit, soul and body.

The Habit of Catastrophizing

15 Aug

Catastrophizing is a mental health term. It is an irrational thought a lot of us have in believing that something is far worse than it actually is. Catastrophizing can generally can take two forms.

The first of these is making a catastrophe out of a situation. This kind of Catastrophizing takes a current situation and gives it a truly negative “spin.” For example, my mother assumed that my life was over because I had surgery. Deep down, she hoped that I would not be able to swim again and she thought my life was over. the truth is that my new hip is now the strongest part of my body and I have not an a ounce of pain in it.

The second kind of Catastrophizing is closely linked to the first, but it is more mental and more future oriented.This kind of Catastrophizing occurs when we look to the future and anticipate all the things that are going to go wrong. We then create a reality around those thoughts (e.g. “It’s bound to all go wrong for me…”). Because we believe something will go wrong, the enemy helps us to make it go wrong.

Falling prey to Catastrophizing is often connected to a demon of fear. Both of these types of Catastrophizing limit your opportunities in life, work, relationships and more. It can affect our entire outlook in life, and create a self-fulfilling prophecy of failure, disappointment and underachievement.

Both may lead you to self-pity, to an irrational, negative belief about any situation, and to a feeling of hopelessness about your future prospects. Further, both of these types of Catastrophizing will define either the presence or absence of alternative possibilities, and possibly paralyze you from going further with efforts toward your goals in life.

I am one who always has options and if I can’t find one, I wait on God to create one.

For example,If I was one who catstrophized, RESCUE would not exist. the truth is that I Was a preacher for 25 years who suddenly found herself without a church home. I did not go running to a different denomination even before I received the revelation that the enemy has all pulpits under his belt.

As quiet as I keep it, church experience as a pastor was horrific for me.I don’t even discuss some of the low down things that happened to me as a pastor, at the hands of the sheep. Yet I am I n here, trusting myself to you guys, not worried that any one of you is going to put me down permanently for the count.

Do you catastrophize?

The Fallacies of Deliverance Ministry

23 Jul

In this post we address the issue of Deliverance ministries in a Q&A format:-

1.In  your estimation, what would you say you do that is different from what is currently being done in deliverance ministries inside of the church?

Deliverance sessions in the Institutional Church are characterized by a deliverance worker shouting at demons to leave a person who can be seen rolling on the ground, coughing or vomiting. Some don’t have physical reactions but believe that once the pastor has prayed and laid hands on them they are delivered only to discover a few days or weeks later they are still suffering from the same issues. Deliverance ministries in the church don’t work because:-
A. a person could be seeking deliverance from an issue that isn’t spiritual e.g. spirit of not having a spouse – this is not a spiritual issue that requires deliverance.
B. The deliverance worker might have no power to cast out demons, because they are not born again.
C. Demons prefer to remain silent and control a persons life without being noticed; if a demon starts making noise for a long period of time making the person jerk back and forth, its probably mocking the deliverance worker and the person being prayed for.
D. The I.C. has been taken over by the fallen angels and religious demons – one clear sign of this is the “i accept Jesus” doctrine or easy believism. This has produced false conversions rather than true born again experiences.

The deliverance counselling we do is to help the person be free and healed. Everything one has been taught and believed is challenged, false teachings are exposed and discarded and the person learns the truth. Detox from religion is highly recommended, one has to clear their mind from error. Truth will cause demons to leave a person as they lose ground every time someone hears and accepts the truth.

The counselling method also helps one become more self aware, you will be able to distinguish what is spiritual and what isn’t. You learn how to use your free will and most importantly you will be clear on whether you have a false conversion or a true born again experience. Deliverance is no quick fix, it takes time and the person seeking deliverance needs to put in work to get results, a session with a pastor screaming at demons to get out will not cut it.

2. Is it only your professional background that separates and distinguishes the ministry that you provide?

I am different not just because of my professional background but my stand on various topics just to mention a few e.g. While many would consider the institutional church the house of God, it is clear to me that it is the evil tree Jesus spoke of in his parable. The Jesus worshiped in most churches today is a fallen angel and not the true God. The I.C. produces a lot of false converts and very few if none born again believers.

3.You seem to have a core group of people you work with, making it simpler for you to hone in on the believer’s conversion experience, much like what is happening in the four walls of the church but the church is a larger scale.

Is this discipleship what your ministry is all about?

I highly doubt the ability of churches to hone in one a believers conversion experience, most churches are about numbers and even for the few churches that are sincere they cant really help their congregations because of the strong delusion in most churches. Many church goers believe they are saved and born again when they are not. Our focus is not creating disciples but to expose the darkness, bring people out of deception, deliver them from demonic torment and help them stand in truth.

Spirit Guides are Fallen Angels

10 Jul
SELP HELP OR SELF DESTRUCT?

Fallen angels have not only infiltrated the Institutional Church, they also have a hand in personal development & self-help teachings. Take for example Napoleon Hill, he is considered the father of the positive thinking movement.

In the book (Think & Grow Rich) he taught people that they need to be disciplined, work hard, find like minded business people,have goals & plan. Sounds like good advice for people seeking material gain but in addition to that he taught new age principles. He was well acquainted with ascended masters (fallen angels). Knowing this, it is clear that the real motive of the fallen angels was to gain access to people under the guise of “self help”.

Some of his teachings include:-.

  1. Visualization (visualize money and you will get it). We know that visualization is a way to enter into an altered state of consciousness and a way of opening one’s chakras which leads to the person being demonized.Some churches teach visualization to their congregations; irony is people go to churches thinking they are safe but the “man of God” they look up to and trust leads them to invite a legion of demons into their lives.
  2. Telepathy to reach great historical minds & invisible beings – the truth is those who practice this are not reaching “great historical minds” but they are unknowingly contacting demons.
  3. He says his book is not meant to interfere with people’s religion and he doesn’t refer to God, uses new age terminology such as infinite intelligence.
  4. He used to teach auto-suggestion which his followers say it appears to be nothing more than magical secret incantations to obtain wealth and develop relationships.

Napoleon does mention that he did contact an Ascended Master, as seen in an excerpt from his book “Grow Rich with Peace of Mind”

p. 162 “I finished this book. I was alone in my study and all was very still. A voice spoke. I saw nobody. I cannot tell you whence the voice came…..
“I have come,” said the voice, “to give you one more section to include in your book….
I whispered; “Who are you?” In a softened voice, which sounded like chimes of great music, the unseen speaker replied: “I come from the Great School of the Masters. I am one of the Council of Thirty Three who serve the Great School and its initiates on the physical plane.”
He said “And now I shall name the enemies who must be met and conquered in the journey… “The foremost is fear……intolerance, egotism, lust, anger and hatred – a total of 26 enemies. …”Know that one who seeks earnestly to conquer these twenty six lurking enemies becomes an Initiate of the Great School. We know him, and he has access to the mind of a Master……….”
“The voice ended. I began to hear little sounds of the world around me, and I knew the Master had returned to the Great School of the Masters.”

Pam already blew the cover of these ascended masters in The Fake Jesus as nothing more than fallen angels. Get a copy of this revelation today at http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/pam_s911

Be wary of self help books, you might read them looking for financial guidance but the reality is you are being tricked into occultism and opening your life to demons.
