Discerning of Spirits: Is It God or the Devil?

4 Aug
What seems heavenly may be a snare from the devil!

It was decided the other week that I would begin writing for the ministry again. I had expected this to go smoothly, as I used to write on a consistent basis last year. After going a good amount of time without much in the way of significant attacks from the enemy, I had not expected him to assail me.

I was dead wrong in that expectation.

My last article spoke about the spirit of the antichrist, an evil spirit who acts as the antithesis to the Spirit of Christ that dwells within born again children of God. I have noticed that when something good happens in my life, often by the grace of God, that the enemy is right around the corner to try and down me after experiencing victory and peace in the Lord.

The Enemy Poses as God in Dreams

The same night where I had correspondence with Pastor Pam on what to write about, I readied for bed. Yet a strange happening occurred. I sat in bed when it seemed like things around me got foggy and dim, as in, existence itself got dark and blurry. It was spiritual in nature and I found it strange, then went to sleep where I dreamt.

I used to be in the Marine Corps. I have had dreams before where military life is used as symbolism, both by God and the devil. In the first dream, I found myself on the first floor of a school, roaming the halls, as if I was skipping class. Up on the second floor, I could hear one of my old sergeants, Sergeant Moore, speaking.

“I’m worried about George’s progress in class,” she said.

I remember Sergeant Moore. She was one of my best sergeants. I could hear how much she cared in her voice, which was consistent with her character as she had always gone out of her way to check on me when we served together. She was a woman who was brave, kind, intelligent, strong-willed and unintimidated by any circumstance. Sergeant Moore represented a reliable and loving leader in the spirit.

I walked up the stairs and went to attend her class after hearing her and saw her in the hallway. She sneered at me.

“Well, look who decided to show up after skipping class!” Her voice bellowed this time and was mighty as she mocked me.

I found myself in the classroom taking a test, where I hid the answers and had a second test on top of it, cheating and hiding my answers.

She shouted, “And he was doing so well, too!” I could feel the disappointment in her voice.

I woke up and interpreted the dream as Sergeant Moore representing God telling me that I was not applying myself to learning in the spirit, because classrooms represent spiritual growth in dreams.

The next night, I experienced the same dimness around me. I slept and found myself in a warehouse, a similar work environment that I have experienced in the natural realm. As I was working, a manager came up to me, stirred with anger so great that steam was fuming out of his head. He was telling me about all he did for his workers and every step he took to optimize their working conditions, and that I was messing it all up.

I woke up and interpreted the dream as similar to the first one, though with this one suggesting that I was being used to frustrate the work of the ministry.

I slept again the next night and found myself in a bus with a few passengers on a draw bridge. The bus crept up to right before the bridge split open, then backed up. Then, it roared forward and sent us diving off the bridge into the core of the earth, splitting open and sending us to hell. A city where instead of oxygen in the air, there were instead flames and lava.

I awoke and was cautious. These dreams had come in straight succession and I wondered if they were designed to create urgency in me. I went about my life.

As I went about my business, I peered into the spirit. And I saw a shadowy demon who has stalked me throughout my life, breathing and glaring at me. I would sometimes see a huge bull, ugly and in a position as if he was standing right next to me.

The Difference Between God & Satan

I took all these experiences to Pastor Pam and it was revealed that they were dreams designed to get me to fear and make me ineffectual.

Because my fear is not of the devil or any of his wiles, but of the Lord. The thought of God being disappointed, angry or thinking that I was a roadblock to His work was what I really feared and the enemy used it against me.

Since I had thought the first two dreams were from God, it actually stressed me out and made me doubt myself in a serious way because I did not want to do anything that would be displeasing to God.

Seeing the demon was an intimidation tactic, sending a message posing the question of, ‘if you can see me so easily, are you truly right with God?’ The whole week had been a barrage of assaults launched by the devil against me during a pivotal time where I wanted to sit down, lock in and do work for the Lord Jesus Christ.

Beyond that, the evidence that it was from the enemy was that the dreams were condemning in nature. I can tell you from experience that the Lord will lovingly correct His children for their betterment in a gentle, tender way that is sometimes even humorous.

I’ve learned that when analyzing a spiritual occurrence, that one’s emotions must be looked at. Are you feeling condemned, accused or even shamed? That’s the devil. God chastises those He loves for the nourishment of their soul and spirit, to make them more Christlike. Satan accuses those he hates.

As I said, when God moves, the enemy will often be right around the corner to counteract. This links back to my writing about the spirit of the antichrist versus the Spirit of God and how they interact with the children of God. I was fortunate to have Pastor Pam counsel me on these things, and it was good that I brought them to her. Revealing subjects that may be difficult to face is pivotal and key to spiritual growth and progress in counseling.

Discerning good from evil is a skill that takes time to develop, even a lifetime, but things worked out for the good of the Lord. I was reassured to stay the path of righteousness and service to God.

Kim Burrell’s Judgmental Commentary: Empowerment in Christ

2 Aug

           

Kim Burrell, the 49-year old Gospel singer who has worked with musical artists like Mariah Carey, Jay-Z and Frank Ocean recently went viral for comments she gave during a sermon at Kingdom City Church. Burrell received backlash online for referring to the attendees as broke, ugly and praising anti-vaccination ideas in favor of “walking by faith.”

Here are some of the comments she made:

“Sometimes before we get friends we have to do an interview: How long you been broke? How many times have you changed your name on your light bill? How many of your bills are in your little cousin’s name? Do you live in a trailer home or a house?”

“You understand. It’s not about status or material things. It’s just about choices.”

“We’re at church… those of us that are walking by faith without a mask and no vaccine,”

“Who likes to be told you’re just ugly? No one likes to be told that,” Burrell said. “Most don’t get offended until they know the bad thing about themselves… I haven’t chosen anyone to be ugly yet. God is good. God is great. You all look great. Most of you have on hats covering most of that anyway. Here’s to you.”

“I have a great personality.”

I want to notate three things in particular when analyzing these comments. 1) Luke 6:45 tells us, “The good person out of the good treasure of his heart produces good, and the evil person out of his evil treasure produces evil, for out of the abundance of the heart his mouth speaks 2) There is a spiritual element to the words Kim Burrell spoke and 3) Sermons like these are evidence that the loving spirit between the brethren of the church is not there.

The Spiritual Agenda Behind Burrell’s Words

We live in a spiritual world. While we live here in the physical/natural realm, the truth is that there are invisible spirits all around us with their own agendas. Satan’s agenda for the churches across the world are to take them over and “slip in” his own deceptions into the sermons while masquerading as God.

I have gleaned into Kim Burrell’s sermon and the truth is that the spirit of the antichrist is at work behind what she said! The spirit of the antichrist acts as the antithesis to God and Godly things. The Spirit of God promotes love, joy and peace amongst brethren. The antichrist who counteracts these things looks to promote judgement, condemnation, strife and conflict between people.

Lies, judgement and condemnation are among Satan’s most effective tools at keeping people in bondage and Burrell’s words are laced with them. They are used to attack a person’s soul by lowering their self-esteem and instilling falsehoods in them. Once a person “accepts” these falsehoods and it becomes part of their soul, evil spirits around the recipient have more ground to attack, influence and even use them for their own wicked agenda.

When one goes to church, one should be uplifted, empowered or sobered spiritually because the truths of God are being sprinkled into their soul upon listening to the speaker. Kim Burrell’s message has instead been used to mock people for their lack of material wealth or belongings, judging others, and promoting the idea that one is walking by faith by not wearing a mask or getting a vaccine. Are all of these ideas not purely of the flesh?

Since becoming born again, I have become more sensitive to the impact that words have on others and the human soul. Kim Burrell’s words revealed her innermost beliefs on what makes someone worthy, whether it be by their financial status or how they “exercise faith,” in this case by not wearing a mask.

Yet, I have mercy for her because it’s clear her evil spirits have gotten such a stronghold on her that she can say these ungracious and unkind things to the people she should be uplifting in Christ. It is also a sad truth that she is not the first pastor recently who has denigrated their fellow churchgoers or spread the lie that neglecting to protect oneself from COVID-19 is a form of Godliness.

Be Uplifted at EIC

Here at EIC, some of the most important fundamental teachings are understanding God, having love for the brethren and differentiating spirit from flesh. Lately in our assemblies, we have been speaking about what makes EIC unique and one of those things is demonstrating what it means to be Godly towards others both in deed and speech.

I am someone who had many flaws that were brought to the surface while being counseled in EIC. In fact, I experienced the things that Kim Burrell mocked people for because I have lived as someone who was broke with a great many ugly things in his soul. I was narcissistic, selfish, self-absorbed, manipulative, cold-blooded, angry, and many more ungodly things!

Yet, not once when I brought the truths of myself to Pastor Pam did she judge, condemn or mock me. Not once did God’s chosen vessel for pastoring me make me feel like I was less of a person or unworthy for the weaknesses and deficiencies of my soul. Instead, she taught me that I had a narcissistic flesh that was not beyond God’s power to restore with His love and mercy. I cannot imagine anyone truly being born again in Christ make the denigrating statements Kim Burrell said so casually. Indeed, a born again person would be convicted of their harsh speech and God’s Spirit would call them to repent.

Beyond this, I was taught how important it is to exercise common sense and logic, both with making decisions for myself and while interacting with other people. I was taught to be courteous and kind to others because that is what it means to be Godly. I was taught that using the scientific advantages that we as a people have been blessed with in this day and age like the vaccine is something to be grateful for and use to one’s benefit.

When the assembly of EIC gets together for service, we are about spiritual empowerment, gaining Godly knowledge from each other and moving as a cohesive unit as different limbs of the Body of Christ. EIC is what a church assembly should be, a place where we see one’s confessed weaknesses made into strengths by the mercy, glory and brilliance of God.

To the reader: I lovingly urge you to not accept ungodly ideas into your spiritual life. Do not be complacent or lukewarm with giving someone a pass if they are preaching falsehoods, condemnation and judgement to your face in the pulpit. Because God is infinitely noble and cares for you! He wants one not to be bogged down by ugly and hurtful words from a false teacher, but to give you a new spirit and heart for Christ! If one’s speech evidences that the devil is speaking through them, flee from them and instead seek God!

Exodus Internet Church is about spiritual empowerment and gaining knowledge to discern what is from God versus what is from the devil. If you find yourself seeking spiritual growth in Christ, give EIC a call at 888-818-1117 or email rescueonfb@icloud.com.

T.D. Jakes: Femininity & Masculinity in Christ

28 Jul
Femininity & Masculinity balance each other out!

T.D. Jakes’ Comments on Black Women

Recently, Megachurch Pastor T.D. Jakes had a sermon on Father’s Day 2022 entitled “Real Men Pour In.” This came to the ministry’s attention after it set off a wave of backlash across social media as people suggested that Jakes made comments that were misogynistic, disparaging and critical of black women.

Jakes claimed that black families are struggling to exist as a strong, loving unit because men and women are failing to balance each other out for the sake of nurturing a family. He went so far as to say that black women are “too masculine.” I went to go view his sermon to see what he had to say for myself.

I was appalled at what I saw and heard.

Here is a list of statements Jakes made about women throughout his sermon:

  • “We [men] were not designed to receive from women”
  • “Your self-esteem is compromised when you have to ask your wife for lunch money”
  • “When Adam started eating out of his wife’s hand, sin came in because the divine order was broken”
  • “We [men] are designed to pour into you. And you are designed to take what we pour into you and increase it, and make it better.”
  • “This breaks all sociological order of the culture that we’re living in now, because we are raising up women to be men.”
  • “And you are not applauded for your femininity. You are applauded by the contemporary society for how tough, rough, nasty, mean, aggressive, hateful, possessive you are and you’re climbing the corporate ladder, but we are losing our families.”
  • “I know you can buy your own car, I know you can buy your own house, but until you create a need that I can pour into, I have no place in your life.”

How can we not receive from a woman, when we received life from one? How can one’s self-esteem be so fragile that it breaks when asking for help from a lover? Why should a woman be shamed for pursuing a career, autonomy and independence in a society that has long sought to take these things from her?

I was disturbed that Jakes could say these things with a straight face. When the camera shot out into the audience, I saw many young women who are in their formative years watching him and listening. I worry for how many people are believing in his message.

The underlying issue with T.D. Jakes’ opinion of black women and how they act is that he is operating on a very narrow, archaic point of view on what the “role” of a woman is in modern society. There is nothing Godly about what he said. There’s an undercurrent of “You were designed to be subservient to us and if you act outside of the realms men expect you to, you are in the wrong” to his comments that are quite ugly.

It is a sad thing that the progress women have made to make a better life for themselves is still getting pushed back against on such a large scale.

History has shown that women have been oppressed and limited throughout the ages, expected to be subservient to a husband and relegated to being a caretaker of children and taking care of the home. Yet the times are changing; recently in America they have more freedoms than in other periods of history because they can educate themselves and compete in the workforce. In fact, womens’ participation in the workforce is at a higher number than ever before.[1] This has led to many women being able to make a life for themselves without depending on anyone else and climb up to positions of influence and power in their respective fields. This is something that we should celebrate! The majority of the population can now build a life for themselves.

Yet it’s clear that T.D. Jakes has no regard for this. Comments like a woman “creating a need that a man can pour into” are woefully misguided and a sexist attempt at trying to tug the current times back into the 1700s.

Femininity & Masculinity in Christ

My friends, we must turn this discussion to instead put the focus on God and highlight His wonderful glory and brilliance in how he has designed both men and women, as well as the masculine and feminine in both of them.

The truth is that God has both masculine and feminine traits, and a strong person has a balance of both types of traits. Godly masculine traits include faithfulness, protectiveness, walking in truth, courage, commitment and spirituality. Godly feminine traits include nurturing, grace, mercy, beauty, caring and affectionate.

Two of the most beautiful and profound characteristics of God are the mercy and grace He has given His elect and, yes, those are feminine traits!

To take this a step further, we can see in scripture that God has used the image of a woman to illustrate His Godly characteristics such as:

  • Comforting God’s people like a mother to a child (Isaiah 66:13)
  • God hovering over His children like a mother eagle over her chicks (Deuteronomy 32:11)
  • God never forgetting His children like a woman never forgetting her nursing child (Isaiah 49:15)

A man having feminine traits to balance his masculine and a woman having masculine traits to balance out her feminine are something to be commended! This means they are a more balanced complete person, one who is able to connect with the people around them in a positive way more. Can you imagine how beautifully they can contribute to a loving family and/or relationship when either a balanced man or woman is paired with a partner that complements them and is also balanced?

If the human race is created in God’s image, and God has both masculine and feminine traits, how much greater is a woman if she has those masculine traits that He has? Or a man who has the feminine traits that He has? It’s glorious to think about, and this all relates to what it means to grow spiritually in the Lord Jesus Christ!

The ministry is all about working on one’s soul. This includes getting to know oneself and embracing both the masculine and feminine traits that can be used in the individual to serve God.

Facing the catastrophizing of religion

15 Nov

Back when I was in church, everything had grave consequences. Masturbating had immense consequences, having a “wrong opinion” and wearing certain clothes had immense consequences, even thinking outside of church’s beliefs had immense consequences.

We were to ask for permission for everything ; because we were scared of the consequences. We had to ask God if we could date this person or else we would slowly loose our salvation in “the world”. We were scared of upsetting God and loosing His favor.

But that attitude of fear clearly contradicts the Word of God saying that God gives us a spirit of love, not of fear and torment. It really gets to show how little the church has to do with Jesus’ words and His teachings. They are about control and setting others in bondage for the evil spirits behind them.

This catastrophizing mindset has to be challenged, as God gave each of us a freewill and common sense designed to be used fully and voluntarily submitted to Him. Not forced into doing or not doing something by coercion and fear.

If you have been in church, ask yourself : am I constantly asking for permission ? Do I secretly fear a lot because I expect dire consequences for my actions ? Are these consequences proportionate to what was done (ex. Lying then being confronted for it instead of thinking that random bad things happening are God punishing you) ?

If you answered “no” to that last question, then you might be catastrophizing based on the preaching of Hell and condemnation that the church regularly feeds its followers.

We can help you examine and reject those lies to be free and rational. Contact us via e-mail at deliverancecounseling@yahoo.com or by telephone at 1-888-818-1117.

Les dangers liés à l’ouverture des chakras

26 Aug

Ceux qui ont pratiqué la méditation, le yoga et se sont adonnés aux initiations des différents systèmes de croyances orientaux se sont rendus vulnérables à une multitude de démons. Si vous êtes un chrétien pratiquant et que vous avez des changements d’humeur soudains et des sensations de flottement, que vous êtes attirés et affectés par certaines choses/personnes sans comprendre pourquoi (ENERGY PULLS ? I am not sure of what that is or how to translate), sensations de lourdeur, de froid et/ou de chaleur, si vous perdez parfois le contrôle de certaines parties de votre corps, de vos capacités corporelles (vue, parole, etc.) ou des manifestations (tête qui bouge toute seule, frissons…), vous avez des symptômes suggérant que vous avez besoin d’être délivrés “dans votre corps spirituel”. La raison ? C’est que vous avez fait une invitation à un ou des dieux Hindu (ou plutôt démons et anges déchus). Voici un résumé de ce qui s’est passé.

Les 7 portails démoniaques

Il y a 7 portails psychiques dans le corps humain que les occultistes appellent les “chakras” : la couronne, le front entre les deux yeux (appelé le troisième œil), la gorge, le cœur, le nombril, les organes sexuels et l’anus.

Dans ce témoignage, Eric (faux nom), ancien grand maître ésotérique, révèle que ces 7 portes sont originellement scellées par Dieu puis ouvertes par l’Homme à cause du péché. Quand elles sont ouvertes, des esprits maléfiques ont la possibilité de passer par ces portes, plusieurs à la fois.

Il y a 5 ans de cela, j’ai accompagné un homme asiatique très religieux, James (faux nom), qui avait été dédié à des dieux Hindu dans son enfance par sa famille. Il s’est ensuite converti au Christianisme en devenant adulte. Il étudiait en séminaire et était membre de l’église Adventiste du 7ème jour. Il m’a contactée parce qu’il entendait des voix de condamnation et d’accusation tous les jours. En counseling, j’ai découvert que James n’était en fait pas né de nouveau. Il pratiquait du yoga depuis longtemps et cherchait à “ouvrir ses 7 chakras”. Les portes de James étaient grandes ouvertes. Le Seigneur lui a donné un rêve, lui montrant qu’à chaque chakra il y avait un dieu Hindu ou démon assis, dans cet ordre :

7. La couronne – Shiva

6. Le troisième oeil – Hakini

5. La gorge – Savashiva

4. Le coeur – Isha

3. Le nombril – Vahni

2. Les organes sexuels – Vishnu et Rakini

  1. L’anus – Brahma

Durant la session de délivrance par téléphone, James a remarqué que des vingtaines de démons couraient à travers ses chakras, de l’intérieur vers l’extérieur et vice-versa. Pour arrêter cela, j’ai dû fermer les portes en expulsant chacune de ces déités en les appelant par leur nom Hindu, les unes après les autres. Elles sont sorties en criant, rugissant et en parlant en langues alors que James n’a jamais parlé en langues avant en dehors de cette session.

Ce fût une délivrance unique. Je n’avais jamais entendu parler de ce genre de choses avant ou depuis. Cependant, après avoir lu ce qu’Eric a dit, je ferai certainement la démarche avec d’autres. James a non seulement été délivré du tourment, mais aussi de toute religiosité. Elle a totalement disparu.

Eric raconte dans son livre qu’il a réussi à se projeter dans le corps de pasteurs faibles dans leur foi à travers la première porte : l’anus. Une fois à l’intérieur, il évaluait le pouvoir spirituel du pasteur à travers son aura en 2 minutes. Si l’aura était d’une certaine couleur, Eric savait alors que la personne était faible dans sa foi. Il dit que la plupart du temps, ces pasteurs étaient faibles à cause de la fornication. Je reprends ses mots : “Il y a beaucoup d’hommes, de femmes, de garçons et de filles qui sont en réalité des loups voraces ou des agents de différents démons, opérant dans différentes églises à travers le monde. En particulier les femmes et les jeunes filles. La présence de ces agents dans les églises chrétiennes guide toujours des esprits astraux pour mener leurs manipulations contre les chrétiens. 

Selon Eric, les péchés qui ouvrent les 7 chakras sont : 

  1. Les relations sexuelles avec un démon dans un rêve ou avec une prostituée
  2. Les drogues
  3. Aller voir un.e diseur.se de bonne aventure
  4. Recevoir la guérison grâce à des pouvoirs occultes (cela vaut aussi pour les guérisons charismatiques)
  5. Lire des livres occultes
  6. La colère (Par la colère, les démons transmettent certaines maladies. Ils manipuleront la personne pour qu’elle aille chercher des solutions auprès de sorciers et des guérisseurs qui sont eux-mêmes des agents de Satan déguisés.

Ce n’est pas surprenant pour moi. Notre Document d’Évaluation pour la Délivrance du client rassemble toutes les informations de ce genre. Ce qu’Eric confirme, c’est que les esprits humains de sorciers et sorcières et de personnes pouvant voyager astralement peuvent entrer par une ou plusieurs portes psychiques avec leur propre esprit, et agir comme des démons. Je comprends ainsi pourquoi l’Esprit Saint m’a souvent amenée à appeler l’esprit par son nom – la mère, le père du captif, un proche, un violeur, n’importe quel être humain qui a soumis mon client. Dans mon activité de counseling de délivrance, j’ai réussi à expulser des démons mais aussi des esprits humains de mon client captif à cause d’un lien d’âme démoniaque. 

Si vous avez ouvert ne serait-ce qu’un de vos 7 chakras, vous avez besoin que des démons soient expulsés de chacun d’entre eux, puis que les portes en soient fermées définitivement. Comme Dieu a prévu qu’ils le soient. 

Envoyez-nous un mail à psmontheweb@yahoo.com pour prendre rendez-vous pour une séance de counseling par Zoom. Veuillez aussi compléter le formulaire contact ci-dessus ; laissez un résumé de votre condition dans la partie “Commentaires”. Cela restera confidentiel.

Demonic Influence: Dreams

27 Apr

Demons seek to control you through even the most innocuous things. How do we combat them?

Demons and fallen angels are about control. They are assigned to people from their birth and aim to influence the person’s life in subtle (and sometimes overt) ways to bend them to their will. If the person obeys them and falls for their traps, they gain more ground over them. Ground is legal rights for a demon or fallen angel to interfere in that person’s life.

Examples of people who have given themselves over to strong demonic influence are religious fanatics and occultists. Both live their lives practicing rituals that empower the demons and fallen angels monitoring them. Their dedication to their crafts serve as a feeding cycle to their own deception.

A new initiative God has undertaken is freeing His captives from the likes of the occult. The occult is a noteworthy field of study because the nature of it is that the person is drawing evil spirits to them in a very overt way. Activities like ouija, palm reading, fortune telling, etc. are surefire ways to invite demons to oneself.

Yet there is a way demons and fallen angels try to establish control over people in a subtle way that seems harmless and even fun: dreams.

They tried this with me. The dreams would come in different categories that I am going to lay out because I know they’re doing this to the people who end up coming to PSM for help. The dreams tend to fall into the categories of 1) posing as God 2) stirring up fear and 3) commanding that the recipient of the dream does some kind of action.

Demons and Fallen Angels Posing as God

This is happening far more than people know. The vast majority of people claiming to have heard from God have actually heard from fallen angels misleading them. Fallen angels pose as different gods whether it is pretending to be Jesus, any God from the trinity, and a great number of false gods throughout different religions. For me, it was a fake Jesus. The one you see in paintings. One dream he sent me had a Godly voice call out to me and say, “You will be born again when you can say: I am with you, even unto the end of the age.”

There was no reason for the Lord God to have told me that then. When God would come to me in dreams, it was often to show me my sinful nature to help me understand why He was about to bring me rebirth. The deceit of the dream posing as God above was to get me to put my faith and hope in it. If I had done so, the fallen angel would have had more legal grounds with which to distract me.

What one needs to keep in mind is that when they receive a dream, they must test the spirits by waiting on it. Do not just immediately assume it is from God and act on it. You’ll end up a sitting duck just asking for a fallen angel to put on some robes, appear to you in a dream claiming he is God, and having you run around in circles trying to “serve him” when he’s fooling you. If you look at the testimonies of people who have had false conversions, you will find that many spoke of having dreams where a religious being came to them with a great revelation. Such tales are laden in deceit.

Stirring Fear

By putting the target in a state of fear, that person is more susceptible to demonic influence. The person is less likely to act rationally because their heightened emotions will fog their ability to resist attacks from evil spirits.

Any and all nightmares are from demons and fallen angels. When one sleeps, what you see in your dreams is your spirit in the spirit realm. Things like monsters, demons, cartoons or people doing evil things in dreams are from evil spirits taking full advantage of the person’s vulnerable state to instill fear into them.

Sleep paralysis is another form of demonic influence over a person during sleep. Your spirit does not have much autonomy in the spirit (unless you’re born again) and is therefore susceptible to the overpowering actions of demons.

One dream I had showed the fake Jesus walking a path and gave me a sensation that I was following him. At the end of the trail was a grave. The message was clear: George, I am going to kill you. Yet if that fallen angel had the ability to kill me, he would have done so already. Instead, here I am alive in Christ speaking to you.

When you have dreams, nightmares or things showing you things that are alarming, do not panic. Keep a cool head and analyze it from a logical point of view, then wait to see if there’s any truth to it.

Commanding the Dreamer to take Action

This is the most direct way demons seek to gain control over their targets: telling them to do something. If the person obeys, they are drawing closer to the evil spirit ruling them because they are consenting to their ungodly suggestions.

One clever way they do this is using their ability to pose as different people. An example of this from personal experience was a dream wherein an ex-girlfriend came up to me on the street. She was telling me the real, true Gospel and emphasizing sin, resurrection and rebirth to me with great zeal. The dream was intended to show me, “look, this woman is right for you. Get in touch with her and be with her.” Yet I knew she was still in false religion and such a venture would prove futile. If I was to believe everything I saw in a dream and acted on it, I would have been in more bondage and possibly attached to someone on a different spiritual path than I was.

Sometimes their methods are more overt where they will literally tell you: go do this, go do that. Other times it’s more subtle and a suggestion like the above.

Conclusion

Dreams are a soft spot for many people. We have seen great saints like Daniel and John receive dreams with information that is still being studied to this day.

And that’s where the devil comes in. He knows that people want that special communication with God. Who doesn’t want to think that God took time out of His day to reach down to one of His people and give them a special message?

We do not have to completely give up on dreams and throw the baby out with the bathwater. What we need is WISDOM and to exercise it by heeding the scripture wherein we are to test the spirits, meaning we wait on dreams and watch what happens if we cannot quickly deduce that it is of Satan.

I also caution the reader to not allow dreams to fill up one’s mind throughout the day. If the devil can come to you 2 nights a week and have you thinking about those dreams for the other 5, then he is taking up rent in your head which will cause more demonic attack due to the accepted ground.

It takes great wisdom to interpret dreams. It takes even greater wisdom to accept that we are to walk by faith and not completely rely on them. Dreams have their place, but exercise caution and wisdom always.

Chakras & Occult: Yoga

18 Apr

This post is part of a series covering practices related to chakras and the occult. Our ministry offers Christian truth and information on worldly practices that isn’t offered elsewhere. If you’d like to read the other installments of this series, check out my articles on 1) empaths and 2) reiki.

As I touched on in my last article, more and more Eastern practices are gaining popularity in America as East blends with West. This is a subject to go more in-depth on another time, but it’s clear that Satan’s strategy for America has been to implement false religion and then — as the people got bored with his brand of counterfeit Christianity — replace it with Eastern mysticism and religions in its stead. Once he’s done using up one tactic, he tosses it away and plugs in his next plan of attack to keep his spiritual assault rolling.

Yoga is a practice we are seeing gain steam nationwide. Go to a gym that holds group exercises and you’re likely to see a yoga class offered there. I grew up near Philadelphia, PA and the art museum there holds weekly yoga classes. There are thousands of dedicated yoga studios worldwide. There’s even scientific studies showing that yoga has health benefits which is a driving reason for its popularity.

This touches on 2 points that I’ve seen Satan implement with his approach to spiritual deception. 1) He is implementing his practices to be socially accepted and easily accessible and 2) a focus on the physical aspects of his deception because of the ignorance to the spiritual implications of these matters.

Yoga: Where did it start?

One of the teachings here at the Spiritual Warfare Library of Pam Sheppard Ministries is that if you want to know the validity of something, you must look at its root. The root of something is the beginning of it, its origin. The approach to analyzing things in this manner was demonstrated by the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth in Matthew where He taught that good trees bear good fruit but corrupt trees bear evil fruit.

So what’s the root of Yoga?

An interesting fact about Yoga is that it was birthed and developed in ancient times before Christ descended to earth. This means that Satan was at work creating false ideas, religions and practices long before the Son of God began His ministry to teach the people the truth of salvation in Him.

Yoga was developed across different civilizations and cultures over 5000 years ago with its earliest record having been recorded by the Indus-Sarasvati in Northern India (1). Originally an oral tradition, its practices would bleed into other cultures by means of Hindu texts called the Vedas. Veda means “knowledge” and were intended to be sacred texts that served as the foundation of the Hindu beliefs. (2)

Yoga in ancient times tended to have 2 purposes. 1) Worship to false gods and/or 2) Getting body, mind and soul to “align.” From there, it was passed down to the modern day where yoga has been divorced from having an inherent tie with religion and instead presented as a healthy practice.

Spiritual Implications of Yoga

Let us examine what the above information means for yoga from a spiritual perspective. In the spirit realm, demons and fallen angels are acting constantly to bring about the downfall of man. One of the main ways this is done is thru false religion, beliefs and practices that by acting on them draws demons and fallen angels to the person.

By partaking in any false practice that was birthed in a false religion or other lie, you are inviting said demons to hold ground over your life. “Holding ground” means to have legal rights to that person; they are inviting evil spirits to have influence on their life and soul thru their actions. Yoga is especially foul from a spiritual perspective because it is interlinked with the worship of false gods.

So what did Satan do? He implemented the poses as a standalone exercise and pushed them out to the gyms, fitness centers and studios nationwide. Tens of millions of Americans practice yoga, who can say how many tens or even hundreds of millions are practicing it worldwide?

By presenting it as a harmless exercise that is good for one’s health, Satan’s plan is to gain ground over millions of lives who are drawing evil spirits to them unknowingly.

Furthermore, yoga is intended to activate “life force energy” inside one’s body. This means that yoga is used and developed to “align” and “balance” one’s chakras. Our chakras are to be closed and left alone, not interacted and toyed with. Yoga can intermingle with meditation wherein the participant is entering an altered state of consciousness that can and will attract demonic influence in their life without them knowing.

The Antidote

The main reason I see people bring up to justify their practicing of yoga is supposed health benefits. Reasons I’ve seen include relieving stress, increasing strength, developing focus, etc. The thing is, all of these benefits can be achieved thru physical activities that don’t draw and invite demons to oneself. If one wants to develop strength, they can lift weights. If they want improved heart health and cardio, they can run or swim, so on and so forth.

People will come with their studies and research done on it, saying, “look, here are the proven health benefits of this practice.” They are focusing only on the physical realm and the flesh. Do you think that Satan won’t give you improved physical and health benefits if it means he holds more control of your spirit and soul?

We are only here for a short time. Put your mind on what must be done to tear away the legal rights and control that the enemy has assailed you with so you can be prepared for salvation by the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

Chakras & Occult: Reiki

11 Apr
One will find true healing in the hands of God

Chakras and Occult: Reiki

My last article discussed empaths and how chakras are related to them. PSM’s mission as a ministry is broadening and one of the driving forces of clients making their way to us is activities related to the occult. One of these activities has been picking up steam and is becoming more accessible than ever: Reiki.

What is Reiki?

Reiki is defined as “energy healing,” a kind of healing that can restore one’s physical condition or emotional state. Do you have some kind of injury that is persistent and neither medicine nor physical therapy is helping it? There is a reiki healer out there who will try to heal you. Do you have an emotional trauma that is weighing you down? A reiki healer will volunteer to help you.

Reiki is all about healing. The practitioner puts their hands on the client and taps into an “energy” that then physically affects the person receiving them. Yet after they seek reiki to be healed and instead receive torment, it is PSM that they end up going to for help because we are equipped to deal with these kinds of spiritual deceptions.

The word “Reiki” is comprised of two Japanese words: Rei meaning “God’s Wisdom or the Higher Power” and ki which is “life force energy.” Put them together and you have the concept of using a spiritual power that is interconnected with life itself to bring healing unto its partakers.

Understanding Reiki Spiritually

First off, let us understand that reiki is a byproduct of Eastern mysticism. The practice was created by Dr. Mikao Usui in the late 1800s. Dr. Usui was interested in medicine and theology and wanted to craft a form of healing that was unattached to religion. His mission was to make a form of healing that was accessible to anyone.

Dr. Usui partook in practices such as meditation and martial arts and eventually became a Buddhist priest. He partook in a 21-day retreat on a mountain where he fasted, meditated and prayed. He believed that his prayers were answered when on the 21st day he saw Sanskrit symbols that helped him develop Reiki further.

From there he created a clinic in Tokyo and passed down the teaching to others who would carry on the practice after he perished. It eventually spread to the West and throughout the world.

What needs to be understood is that Dr. Usui was used by Satan like many people: a well-intentioned person obliviously partaking in fields ruled by Satan. We must look at the root of something to determine its validity. The root of reiki is a man who participated in meditation, martial arts and Buddhism: all practices inherently opposed to Christianity. These practices were developed by false gods who use them to gain ground and control over its participants.

Pitfalls of Reiki

Reiki proclaims to be a religion-free practice. One does not have to believe in a religion to partake in it or use it for others. And that is precisely what makes it so dangerous!

Any observance into Satan’s methods in the last days we are living in reveals a simple truth: he is operating in a way that makes partaking in activities he rules over easier than ever. One can type in “reiki healing” into google and find a number of practices near them in seconds. What’s more is that reiki is being combined with existing practices such as physical therapy, massage parlors and other health practices.

When one practices reiki or accepts it being done to them, they are giving license to the demons and fallen angels to have influence over their life. The person receiving it may experience relief but it will be at the cost of evil spirits working in their lives more intricately.

To go into further detail: we have had a number of clients who have come to us tormented by demons because of their partaking in reiki. What’s worse is that reiki is so accessible that we have even had people who picked up demons and torment by simply watching youtube videos! The healer will reach out to the camera and proclaim a healing unto the viewer which can lead to torment.

Furthermore, reiki is closely interlinked with chakras. The logic behind this is that by placing one’s hands over a certain chakra, that chakra can be balanced and the person will feel relief. For example, the third-eye chakra slightly above and centered between the brows is related to anxiety and depression. One would receive a reiki healing by having hands placed on it to reduce anxiety.

The Antidote

People go to reiki practitioners because they want to be healed. They did something to their chakras so are now seeking out someone to help them. This goes hand-in-hand with how Satan operates: he creates a system where each piece is intertwined and the people caught up in it bounce from one deception to another. Martial arts, yoga, reiki, meditation, etc. are all different flavors of the same deception.

The greater point to this is the fact that reiki is proof to the fact that Satan is a master of counterfeit. Reiki is counterfeit healing and its partakers will often face consequences even if it’s not until the end of their life.

Yet Satan does not bring true healing. Try as he might, God has assured that His people are led to a place where true healing can occur: this ministry.

We have had clients who have been delivered from opened and imbalanced chakras. How was such a thing done? We do it through deliverance counseling. Deliverance counseling is the process of preparing the soul to empower one’s free will to successfully resist the devil. We work with our clients and are anointed by the Lord Jesus Christ Who emboldens us to prepare His people and deliver them.

Part of the PSM mission is to help inform and protect the elect of God by providing accurate and balanced information on the ever-changing world of spirituality and religion. It is our hope that our models and products serve as a valuable resource furthering that goal.

Knowing yourself in church is impossible

31 Mar

In order to decipher your daily circumstances and detect anything unusual in your life, you have to know yourself. The Enemy is constantly at task to bring us down, sensing subtle attack after subtle attack each tailor-made for each of us. Often, these attacks come with lies about ourselves and others.

When you know yourself and are confortable in it, you see these lies and set-ups clear as day. Because your foundation is fixed.

When I was an active member of thr church (Catholic then adventist), I had to give up/hide a lot of things. Even to myself : love of fashion and art in general, curiosity, ambition, interest for societal issues and such. That’s what I like. But whenver I saw any interest in something “worldly” I had a hard time accepting it and I was in a constant inner fight to hide, to change or just mourn about it.

This prevented me from knowing myself in a secure way. So when demons came to torment and mislead with their lies and intrusive thoughts about (myself particularly), I fell right for it because I couldn’t say “Hmm… I have that thought in my mind… that’s not of me to think that. I won’t pay much attention to it.” and thus stay relaxed.

In church, by these constant urges to change yourself with your own strength, prayers and ritualistic acts such as reading the Bible, going to mass or tithing, you are obviously not encouraged neither to be yourself or to be honest and acceptant if yourself and others.

They mistake denial of the flesh as denial of the self which is who you are ; which leads to useless self-doubt, self-righteousness, self-hatred and worst of all, complete defeat in front of demonic torment through passivity.

Truth is, we are sinners. We are in the world and unless God touches us, we are going to love the things of the world. That’s it.

If you are coming out of church and want to come out of your shell of religiosity to know yourself to resist the devil successfully, contact Pastor Pam, our leader at rescueonfb@icloud.com or by telephone at 888-818-1117.
