Be Set Free From Deliverance Ministries

4 Nov

A message from Pam: BE SET FREE FROM DELIVERANCE MINISTRIES!

What I have been running into is that there are many people out there who need DELIVERANCE FROM DELIVERANCE MINISTRIES—– FOR THERE IS MUCH “QUACKERY AND NONSENSE” GOING ON.  Uninformed deliverance workers may be the root cause of the severity of your present bondage and/or torment.  It is a sin and a shame!!! Deliverance from deliverance  is what you need.

The purpose of ministering deliverance is to set free those who are in bondage. As Jesus was sent forth to preach deliverance to the captives (Luke 4:18, “The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to… preach deliverance to the captives…”), so we are also sent out (John 20:21, “Then said Jesus to them… as my Father hath sent me, even so send I you.”) to do the works He did (John 14:12, “He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also…”), and this includes casting out of devils (Matthew 10:8).

The ministry of deliverance is about bringing spiritual victory and freedom to those who are in bondage to devils and demons. It doesn’t matter what you call it (demonized, possessed, oppressed, etc.), if you are in demonic bondage, whether you need to tear down a stronghold, break up a legal ground, cast a demon out, or all three… it’s still deliverance, because it’s setting the captives free. There are 5 important elements of this ministry. I  train my deliverance ministers to be  knowledgeable of all 5 elements so that they are  prepared to address them without hesitation:

Casting Down Imaginations by Receiving Truth: Setting captives free is more about getting them to receive the truth than it is about  commanding demons to come out. This is a grave mistake that causes a lot of people to walk away from a deliverance still in bondage. There is more to it than simply casting out demons. In Luke 9:42, we are told a story of how Jesus not only rebuked demons in a boy who was mentally affected by evil spirits, but also is said to have healed the boy. There is no mention of the boy needing physical healing, but if you look up the word healed in this passage, one of the meanings is, “to free from errors and sins…”, which is likely what Jesus did with the boy, Jesus removed the boy’s legal grounds (sins) and freed him from errors (strongholds). This case of deliverance required more than just rebuking demons!

I myself had a spirit of divination which is a demon.  However, no one ever cast it from me and I never cast it from myself.  I simply received the truth and cancelled my desire to know the future but to simply walk by faith and not by sight. Truth MADE me free.  Crucifying my flesh in the area of desiring supernatural power  to know and predict the future MADE me free.

Tearing down strongholds: Strongholds are people, places and things  that have obtained control in your life, one way or the other and are often set up and nurtured by demons through lies and deception.  For example, if you were raped or had a frightening, unexpected car accident, a stronghold of fear was established IN you by a demon. Demons thrive on strongholds, and use them to hang around a person and torment them. Failing to tear down strongholds can hold up a deliverance and prevent us from walking in complete spiritual freedom.

Removing legal rights: Legal rights are things that give demons permission to enter and remain in our lives. Before demons can often be cast out, it is important to address and remove these legal rights.  Failing to remove legal rights can hold up a deliverance very easily. Demons receive legal rights not so much because of what other’s have done but because of what YOU ignorantly did to invite them in.  You need to understand HOW you invited them in BEFORE an entity is confronted, or the demon will trick you into inviting him back!

Closing Demonic Doorways: Demons enter the soul through 7 doorways or gateways. We determine through a process of inquiry, which doorway is open: the crown, the third eye, the throat, the heart, the navel, the sex organs or the anus. We also determine what demons need to be cast out.

Casting out the demons: This requires two basic elements: knowledge of your authority in Christ Jesus over the powers of the enemy, and faith in that authority. Demons are cast out with a simple spoken command, such as, “I command the spirit of fear to come out in the name of Jesus!” We ask those we work with to complete a deliverance questionnaire called the DAF, Deliverance Assessment Form  that will give us an overview of their background, the bondages they are facing, the root or source of their problem, as well as legal grounds, strongholds and any particular spirits that need to be addressed. Then we begin to work with them to break up any legal grounds, and tear down any strongholds together we  see in your  life and of course, cast out any demons that need to go. If it takes more than 15 minutes, which includes the prayer, to cast out a demon, either there is no demon there or the preliminary work was not completely done.  If you have rolled around the floor in a deliverance session for hours or days, all you did was pick up MORE demons.

   There are also times when even  the most talented people do not know how to move beyond certain obstacles on their own.  Coping skills can become  overwhelmed and faith can be weakened.  This happens to all of us at some point in our spiritual walk.  Yet it takes a special kind of

The first demon I cast out was in 1983.

courage for you to seek  help now.  You don’t have to wait another minute to receive the help you deserve!For years, I provided  face-to-face therapy sessions within my own community.  However, I must say that  the convenience and availability of  phone counseling and deliverance mentoring  is convenient for me also in numerous ways..  Since December 2002, I  have offered online counseling and therapy by phone and have been astounded at the results clients have achieved.  You too can be a true believer in the benefits of phone  counseling and mentoring sessions.

Phone counseling, training or mentoring will help you with your problem and there are many other benefits to consider as well.  So—

Freedom From Witchcraft Spells Part 1

30 Sep
 Witchcraft spells and you, the believer is the topic of this article. Nightmares, strange, visions and odd dreams signals: what are they? Such signals could mean someone is working  roots, aka witchcraft spell casting on you.
If your faith is not rooted in good ground, Satan can try to afflict, and enter your dream life. Satan has no qualms about placing demonic strongholds on God’s people. He’s trying to take us out the battle, or at least wound us sorely. Be vigilant and be aware, the war is on saints!
Previous Posts…
We’re dead set on the topic of withcraft spell casting. We’re taking a look at what witches do and why. Patrice Gibson, an ex-witch turned Christian has been giving us a taste of the demonic tactic of witches and warlocks. It’s a bitter pill but we ought to be reminded of the devils vigilance. That ole’ serpent even works through witches that take up office in churches. Patrice was a church goer, and a witch before she was saved. In our last post, Patrice talked about the evils of sex magic. I caught up with Patrice recently, we talked about nightmares, strange visions, and odd dreams. I took notes on some of her observations and experiences. She fell victim to a warlock, and her dream life told the story.
We Can’t say that Every Nightmare is From the Devil…
Not every dream with a strange twist, or nightmarish image is a result of withcraft spell casting. Some dreams have other causes which I can’t expound on. The purpose of this article is not to laud demonic dreams. We’re just sharing information, and the purpose is to expose the devil. According to Patrice, and my own research, witches conjure up spells that can afflict their victims dream life. We know that God does speak in dreams and symbols. Well! so does the devil.
Patrice and the ” Dark Waters Dream “…
Patrice shared one of her dreams that she knew was demonically influenced. Patrice was living with a professing warlock (male witch) at the time. Her dream life, bought to her from the kingdom of darkness, revealed his evil intentions. She calls this dream the ” Dark Waters Dream “. Her dream was strange, odd, and full of distorted visions. Here is what she wrote regarding it:

Dark Waters Nightmare

The Dark Waters Dream by Patrice Gibson…
I was unsaved and living with a man named Lorenzo. Lorenzo never hid his spell casting activities. What he did hide was the spell casting root work he was doing on me. I had no idea of this in the beginning. I thought this man loved me, and had my best interest at heart. Might I ad that there is no honor among witches. How could there be? Is their any honor among devils and fallen angels? I was completely decieved. I was not romantically attracted to this warlock. I needed a place to stay. Lorenzo allowed me to live rent free. I was able to bank about $4,000. I was working as a claims adjuster then, doing consistant overtime.
Lorenzo was up in age, but pleasantly entertaining. I had no clue, that his plans for me included entrapment, enslavement and life long bondage. His dream was that I would marry and care for him in his so-called golden years. His health was on the brink of failing. I was 28 and subtly refused his advances. I laughed off his efforts at flirtation, swearing we would be friends forever.
LORENZO WAS SECRETLY PUTTING ROOTS FOR DOMINATION AND CONTROL IN…MY FOOD
I didn’t find this out until after the dark waters nightmare. Lorenzo always insisted on doing the cooking. This should have sounded an alarm in my mind. His excuse was that I was a busy woman and needed my rest. There were times when his dishes tasted odd or slightly bitter.
Lorenzo wanted a slave and caretaker for life…
Lorenzo had an even older friend name Gary who was sick and dying. Gary, another warlock, had a young doting wife. Gary’s wife Dawn was also a registered nurse. Lorenzo’s diabolical desire was that I be just like Dawn. To me, Dawn was under a spell, for she was often zombie like and strangely submissive.
Gary died suddenly one night. The night before Gary’s funeral, I had the dark waters nightmare. In this eerie dream, I was looking across an expanse of dark, murky, muddy waters. The whole dream was of a stormy sea that was as close as the nose on my face. I felt a deep, dark forboding presence. My eyes seemed to fill up with the water, but were not wet.  In the dream, myself and Lorenzo sat together at the dining room table. Everthing was lit up around us, in contrast to the dark waters, which had already disappeared  from my dreamscape. Lorenzo was smiling strangely. Gary, who had died days before appeared and served us both tea from a pot. I watched all this and did not drink that tea. Suddenly, I awoke…
Dream Revelation …
I knew from that dream that Lorenzo wanted me to drink a cup of bondage and enslavement. Gary served up his situation (the tea) with Dawn whom he also had put rootwork on. The tea was a symbol of what Lorenzo wanted of me. I let that cup pass me by. I did not drink the tea. I was awake and aware then. I knew exactly what Lorenzo had been cooking up with his spell casting for me. I did not attend Gary’s funeral. I believe, if I had I would have picked up the same demonic spirit of control, working in Dawn. As I said, Gary was also a witch. His young wife Dawn seemed unaturally attracted to this 89 year old man, I now knew why. By the way, Gary was also a church member whose pastor was visiting his home to pray for him. Although I was unsaved, God had given me a warning. I moved out of Lorenzo’s house two weeks later, and never saw him again.
Closing Words From Minister Marlene…
I’d like to thank Patrice for sharing her example of a strange nightmare with demonic overtones. If your faith is not built on the rock and planted in good soil, Satan can try to afflict, enter your dream life, and put a hex on you. He can try. Be advised and be aware, Satan has declared war on the saints. Dwell on the words of Paul in Ephesians 6. The sword of the spirit is the word of God. By the way are you weilding a sword with a dull blade? The dull blade is an audio message by Pam Sheppard, and that’s a topic for yet another article
