Beware of Meditation and Yoga!

25 Feb

Written by Sarah

I started practicing guided meditations and chanting mantras when I was twenty years old. I often combined this with marijuana use. At first, I received relief from anxious thoughts and depression, but it didn’t last. I began to be tormented with vivid nightmares, visions of moving shadows, and a strange phenomenon which I called, “blacking-out.” Black outs happened during the day when I was fully sober.

Unconsciously, I would stop breathing while my mind went “offline.” I estimate that this would last for at least 30 seconds. During a blackout, an outsider would say of me that, “the lights were on, but no one was home.” I would have no re-collection of where my mind went or how long I wasn’t breathing once I “came to.” I believe that this phenomenon was evidence that, through my meditation practice, I was trained to enter into the altered state on command. All of this was possible because I chose to be passive.

Like many others, I was deceived into believing that I was improving my mental health through harmless meditations. Demons were entering my opened chakras the entire time. People open their chakras by entering into an altered state of consciousness through passivity. Passivity means that one’s mind is unfruitful.

A passive mind is one where the part of the brain is responsible for rational decision-making, the frontal lobe, is inactive. All thinking stops. A person enters into a passive state through various practices, such as: meditation, chanting, falling slain in the spirit, yoga, reiki, dancing, daydreaming, speaking in tongues, and alcohol/drug use.

These practices create an altered state of consciousness, or a trance. Therefore, one enters into an altered state by allowing their mind to become passive. The altered state is how one’s chakras (a.k.a. demonic doorways to the soul) open. Evil spirits enter a person’s soul through their opened chakras. Entering into an altered state is an invitation for demons to legally enter into one’s soul. Demons cannot enter into someone unless they are in an altered state.

The enemy uses the altered state of consciousness and the 7 chakras to produce a false conversion. The “I Accept Jesus” practice involves passively saying a prayer asking Jesus to “come into my heart.” This prayer is unbiblical. However, the person is tricked into believing that they have invited the true Jesus Christ of Nazareth into their heart. In reality, this prayer invites the fallen angel, Isha, to open the heart chakra. Religious demons then enter into the person. This produces a false conversion. The person begins to worship the fake Jesus; the fallen angel known as Jesus Sananda Immanuel. The demons may produce feelings of love, peace, warmth, and joy to “sell” the false conversion as a genuine conversion. Later, these demons may begin to torment the person with condemnation, blasphemous thoughts, and fear.

The enemy is pushing the entire world into an altered state of consciousness because it is a critical part of his end-time agenda. The enemy’s intention is to deceive the world into believing that the Antichrist is God. He plans to achieve this by speaking the same thing into the minds of every person at the same time. This stunt will “prove” that the Antichrist has the qualities of God: all-powerful, all-knowing, and everywhere present. Of course, the Antichrist is
not God and can only be in one place at a time. Therefore, the enemy will have his many demons help him to pull this off.

But why is the altered state a critical part of this plan? Because the only way demons can enter into a person is through the altered state, or trance. Demons can speak thoughts into a person’s mind undetected once they live in their soul. Therefore, the enemy is training the entire world in the trance so that their souls will become infested with demons. He can then use these demons to speak the same thing into peoples’ minds at the same time. Thus, he can convince many that the Antichrist is God.

Knowing this, it becomes clear why the enemy is aggressively promoting the altered state in these last days. It is through the altered state that the enemy can enact his end-time deception. He is grooming people into the trance by any means necessary. It is no wonder that fornication, alcohol and drug use, meditation, yoga, and chanting (including in the institutional church) are normalized and seen as healthy in the world today.

All of these activities put a stop to rational thinking, induce a trance (which opens the chakras), and invite demons into the soul. Therefore, it is crucial that we deal with our ability to enter into the altered state so that we do not become fodder for Satan’s deception.

The Return of Christ: Glorified Bodies

16 Nov

One of Exodus Internet Church’s missions is to edify the people of God in the last days. As human beings, the lens thru which we gaze out into the world is colored by the various responsibilities we are beholden to here in our life on earth. Whether that be jobs and careers, family life, friendships and relationships, there is always something that requires our immediate attention and efforts.

Yet as children of God we are called to look beyond that. Because we are inheritors of eternal life and the new birth. Life rendered onto us by the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth, the Son of God. We are blessed to be in these times because the return of the Lord God is imminent; we will get to witness firsthand the second coming of Jesus Christ and live with Him as He rules the earth. We are living in the very times that saints throughout time and history have wondered about since the onset of the church of Christ.

The return of the Lord brings with it another glorious centerpiece promised to us by our God: the redemption of our bodies.

“And not only the creation, but we ourselves, who have the firstfruits of the Spirit, groan inwardly as we wait eagerly for adoption as sons, the redemption of our bodies. For in this hope, we were saved.” – Romans 8:23-24

Many of you reading this have either received the new birth or are waiting for it. And for those who have it, you march on the narrow path of salvation strengthening your soul and exercising Godly knowledge to become more Christlike. And for those of you who wait, you chisel away at your soul thru counsel and edification so that you may better yourself in preparation for the second birth. We are grateful for this life that God has given us.

But there’s more to come. The redemption of our bodies is something we will only experience when Christ comes back and rewards us with them. However, we have some information available to us that allows us to glean some insight into what having those bodies will be like.

The Spiritual Forefathers: Adam and Eve

It has recently come to the attention of the ministry to peruse the ancient texts, meaning texts that were not added to the Word of God for various reasons. Two of these books are the first and second Books of Adam and Eve.

The first and second Books of Adam and Eve are texts detailing what the first two saints went thru after being banished from the Garden of Eden. In them we see a number of things that are as relevant to being in Christ as ever such as: the consequence of sin, contending with Satan, putting our faith in God to see us thru difficulties as well as the creation of marriage so that the line of David would be established, paving the way for the first coming of the Lord Jesus Christ.

As I read thru the text my attention was caught by the suffering of Adam. Because you see, Adam and Eve are the only saints who had glorified and perfect bodies in the presence of God, only to lose them. All the other saints who received those bodies were resurrected when Christ was on earth, when He resurrected the saints of old on the same day He was resurrected (Matthew 27:51-53). And we now await the same bodies. Everyone else outside of Adam, Eve and the Lord Jesus Christ were born in deadness of sin.

There are a number of details in the text that are crucial to getting an understanding of what having those bodies will actually be like.

Characteristics of Glorified Bodies

Adam details the weaknesses he experienced after being cast out the garden in the text:

“While I was in the garden I knew neither heat, nor fatigue, neither transience, nor trembling, nor fear; but now since I came to this land, all this affliction has come over me.” Adam and Eve 22:3

And God tells Adam about other changes to his body:

“Adam, when you were in My garden, you knew neither eating nor drinking, faintness nor suffering, leanness of flesh, nor change; neither did sleep depart from your eyes. But since you transgressed and came into this strange land all these trails have come over you.” – Adam and Eve 35:2

What this tells us is that all of these limitations of the human body will not even be a factor when the Lord Jesus Christ gives us our new bodies!

No more tiredness, lack of sleep, fear, dependence on food and water for us. The biggest word in the text is probably transience, also known as the state of something being temporary, meaning we will be immortal.

Tell me, if we are immortal and have glorified bodies, do you think we will have sicknesses? I don’t think so. No more disease and sickness, sensitivity to heat and cold, so on and so forth. Just immortality and strength at all times. My friends in Christ, all of these tiny factors weakening our bodies and affecting our quality of life that we barely even think of will be a thing of the past.

This is part of the beauty and glory of what it means to be a Christian. That we have such knowledge. That we can adopt an eternal mindset and look forward to and have faith in the good things that the Lord God has promised all of us.

And yet, that is not even the whole of it. Adam goes on to detail how his emotions and spiritual life were affected by sin:

“Forgive us our offense and our sin, and look at us with Your eye of mercy. For when we were in the garden our praises and our hymns went up before you without ceasing. But when we came into this strange land, pure praise was no longer ours, nor righteous prayer, nor understanding hearts, nor sweet thoughts, nor wise judgement, nor long discernment, nor upright feelings, neither was our bright nature left within us. But our body is changed from the likeness in which it was at first when we were created.” – Adam and Eve 23:7

It has been determined that the body and the mind are interconnected. The bodies will not only affect our physical capabilities, but our emotional and spiritual ones as well!

These characteristics of pure praise, righteous prayer, understanding hearts, sweet thoughts, wise judgement, discernment, upright feelings and a bright nature are invaluable. Think of the implications of this for both our relationships with God and each other as children of God.

Pure praise and righteous prayer mean a stronger and perfect fellowship with God as we approach Him in a manner most pleasing to him.

We will better understand each other as friends in Christ because our hearts will be full of understanding, as well as having sweet thoughts and wise judgements toward one another. The implications of such traits means that the petty squabbles, hurt feelings, miscommunications that hurt friendships, being turned off by another, conflict and strife with our fellow people will not even be a thing in God’s new world for us.

To have upright feelings and a bright nature means to be filled with love and everlasting life in Christ. It is my strong belief that saints will be united and have wonderful fellowship with each other without the pettiness or harshness that we sometimes exhibit on each other. Perfect harmony and peace in God will be part of the new life!

Finally, it is written in the text that Adam and Eve could see into the spirit before their bodies were altered, as they would witness angels praising the Lord God in the heavens regularly. This means that when Christ returns and gives us our bodies, we will be able to see beautiful, heavenly and Godly things with our very eyes.

Our Bodies Made like Christ’s

“But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body to be like His glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself” – Philippians 3:20-21

To have our bodies made like Christ’s brings on even more glory to God. My friends, I can tell you that when I got born again, I had a vision of Christ. I was in a golden field of flowers, where the flowers were sparkling so brilliantly it was like they were more perfect than the purest gold.

And I looked into the field and saw a robed Figure Whose glory filled existence with perfection as I witnessed it in the spirit. He was invincible. I could tell that nothing could hurt Christ. And in His essence was pure kindness, joy, glory, majesty, mercy, grace and love.

Nothing in this world is perfect. The most we can do is create a standard in some activity and call that standard perfect, but real perfection does not exist in this life, especially not in people.

Yet I witnessed perfection in God when I was born again. If our bodies are to be like Christ’s as the scriptures tell us, what unimaginable glory awaits us?

I did not want to come back from the land I was in. It is good to know that such things are a sign of our future, as the Lord God will give us our new bodies and establish His new kingdom on earth.

Come Lord Jesus, back to earth for the glory of God and render onto your saints the glorified bodies that have been promised. The completion of our hope in the things to come under the Lord God!

False Conversions: Fear of Hell

14 Oct

The Spirit: Hell

It is evident that in this 11th hour, Satan and his underlings are pulling out all the stops in leading the world in a grand deception before the return of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

We as human beings born in and enslaved to sin have empowered these evil spirits and enemies of God to flourish in this last day and age due to our rebellion, fornication and idolatry. I speak not just of fornication and idolatry in the physical sense, but the spiritual sense as well. I speak of the idolatry and fornication that man has rebelled against God with dating all the way back to our predecessors who worshiped a golden calf and other animals back in Old Testament times.

And while those sins were abominable then, all hell is breaking loose in these latter days because the common person has a severe lack of knowledge with regard to spiritual matters. The scriptures tell us that God’s people are destroyed for a lack of knowledge. What you get is a spiritual blindness resulting in a person believing a spirit when confronted with one as opposed to testing them, opening the floodgates to further deception.

One of the chief deceptions of the day are “spiritual experiences” that run the gamut: near death experiences, spiritual awakenings, communication with God, conversions that are of a heavenly nature, so on and so forth.

I can tell you as someone who belongs to God that I have had ventures in the spirit both from the Lord and from the enemy. And, during dreams, I have traveled to places in the spirit that are hellish in nature. I would say the defining characteristic of hell is not just an absence of life, but that its essence is spiritual death which hangs in the air thicker than a smog.

A Testimony of Hell

So what happens when you take the people of today’s proclivity to seek out spiritual experiences and combine it with hell? It is like the other myriad of experiences out there that have piled up to form a mountain of deception so vast that it has risen up from the earth and reached the heavens. In this case, it breeds false conversions.

I recently came across a video of a man who claimed to have been taken to hell. Before the dramatic episode, he experienced a number of spiritual occurrences that are recounted repeatedly with much of the clientele at EIC.

The man was led into the world of religion where he began to experience things like an “inner voice” in his “spirit” telling him to speak at certain times during Bible studies and other Christian gatherings. He began to pray and read the Word on a regular basis, thereafter having encounters in the spirit.

He spoke first of being visited by an angel and taken into a home where he felt the presence of God. And he was led through various doors and up and down flights of stairs into a final room where he had a knowing that Jesus was about to visit him in the room. He woke up before it happened.

It was shortly after where he saw a bright, pure light in his room while he was by himself. The light was brighter than the sun and forced him to his knees, and he saw a man walk out of the light: Jesus.

This soon led to a second encounter in a dream where he came face to face with Jesus and realized that he was a sinful person as well as the holiness of God. He awoke, claiming to have a new fire for God with the experience being so profound that he began to change his ways. He thereafter had an experience where a literal flame appeared before him in his room.

More supernatural occurrences happened to the man, the chief of which was a dream where he got into a car crash. He dreamt of waking up in a hospital only to have his spirit leave his body and descend into hell with demonic entities in it. He awoke from the dream with a new vigor for life, promising God that he would do everything in his power to tell everyone he knows that hell exists and to change their life to avoid it.

He prayed for confirmation and in due time, he had another dream where he descended into hell. As he saw the people around him were in torment, he heard an angry voice he believed to be God tell him, “Go and tell them to repent.” After this, the man went on to share his testimony with everyone for the purpose of getting people to repent. In his most recent appearances, he urges everyone to seek out a supernatural occurrence with God because it is available to everybody.

Deception: Fear of Hell

The scriptures call on us to not believe every spirit, but test them and see if they be of God.

This means we have to not just look at the experience, but the motive behind why we receive messages. I see a number of aspects to this testimony that are cause for concern.

The first indicator is the “inner voice” the man referred to which kept pressing him to speak at certain times during Bible studies. My experience is that God is not pushy, but the devil is. God allows the person to make a choice with their own free will, while the enemy forcefully pushes them into the path he has planned for them.

The giveaway with this is that the man was not born again at the time this happened, yet he was led into praying and reading the Bible every day. He was led into religious activity that is explicitly designed for those who have the new birth. This ties into the following point.

He saw Jesus, face to face. One of the most prevalent deceptions of the last days is that a fallen angel by the name of Jesus Sananda Immanuel is posing as Jesus to lead people into false conversions and a lifetime of deception. It is actually the subject of one of Pastor Pam’s books: The Fake Jesus: Fallen Angels Among Us.

Encounters with “Jesus” are more common than ever. It’s easy to take a spirit at face value when one undergoes a spiritual experience beyond the realm of possibility in the physical realm. 2 Corinthians teaches us that the enemy cloaks himself for the purpose of deception.

“No wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.” – 2 Corinthians 11:14

The plot is to appear as God to people who do not understand this. The enemy is using the common person’s lack of knowledge in spiritual matters to mislead them into thinking they have seen God. This can lead to the person unknowingly worshiping a false god for even the duration of their life because they have not thought to question the experience.

While the man’s spiritual experiences were dramatic, there is no mention of the resurrection which is a foundational and key element of any bona fide born again conversion.

This demonstrates a misunderstanding of the Gospel. For 1 Corinthians 15:14 instructs us that if Christ has not been raised, then our preaching and faith is dead. In spite of all the wonder and signs of a spiritual experience, a conversion is powerless without the resurrection.

Lastly, the fear of hell is prevalent in the testimony. A component of this false conversion that I have seen in many others is a heavy emphasis on a fear of hell. Suffering damnation is to be in hell and experience spiritual death.

But to be born again is to enter into spiritual life. It comes across as a mockery; a new convert will be rejoicing in the eternal life that the resurrection of the Lord Jesus Christ gave them! With that comes peace, joy and love among other fruits written of; there is no fear in the new spirit we have been given by the Lord God.

Have you experienced condemnation and fear while trying to find your path in God after attending church? Have you questioned some of its teachings or if God is even there?

False Conversions: Wicca and Satanism

26 Aug

            I recently came to across an article that, at first glance, seemed encouraging and uplifting. Featured on various Christian news websites, a young man by the name of Matthew told a dramatic story of how he overcame drug abuse, a dishonorable discharge and even a suicide attempt all by the mercy of God.

But as I read through his story, it became apparent to me that telltale signs of a false conversion were there. He spoke about how he hit rock bottom after being dismissed from the Army and turned to witchcraft in an attempt to take control of a life that was slipping out of his control:

“It was this sense inside of me like I’d finally, completely dedicated myself to Satan,” he recalls. “When I began to experiment with witchcraft, I began to feel this control. I began to feel like I can manipulate the world around me. I can manipulate the people around me. I’m tired of being stepped on. I’m tired of not being accepted and loved by everybody so I am going to force it to happen.”

There’s two aspects of drawing evil spirits to oneself here: evil, negative emotions (in this case, depression and manipulation) and the practice of witchcraft. Matt came from a broken family and fell into depression, the effects of which were exacerbated by his use of drugs and alcohol. He battled with anxiety and dove deeper into harder drugs like meth and heroin.

During all of this, he began to take in false ideas of God. Condemning ones that we see many clients speak about such as God striking one down the moment they sin and do wrong.

He met a Wiccan high priestess who led him into occult and new age practices.

“There’d be manifestations, like stuff would move around. I’d do a spell or a ritual or something and I’d see something happen as a result of it and I thought, ‘Man, I’m in control.’ I loved that feeling of, ‘I have power. I have the ability to do something.”

He goes on to describe a blood covenant he made with Satan and immediately experiencing a condemnation, a knowing that he was destined for eternal damnation. This spiritual downfall brought Matt to the point of deciding to take his own life.

This is where what seems like a miracle happens. Matt had a vision of Jesus and thereafter renounced Satan, throwing away his tarot cards and books of spells. He pleaded to God for forgiveness and experienced a peace he never knew before, even claiming victory over his past addictions, mental illness and use of Wicca.

From there, Matt embraced a new life where he is now a pastor to the youth in his church. He got married and speaks of the fruits of love and joy he received from God.

The scriptures tell us to examine ourselves to see if we are in the faith. By examining ourselves, we have to take an objective look at our behavior and experiences to determine if they really are Godly. The importance of this cannot be understated as we live in the 11th hour, the moment of history where the war between God and Satan is amplified shortly before the glorious return of the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

While Matthew has gotten free, I see a number of red flags to his conversion that makes me question if he is still in the hands of the devil or not.

One of the strengths of our ministry is that we have members in it who have dabbled in both “sides” of the spiritual realm: the occult and religion. This gives us greater understanding of the deceptions of the spiritual realm at large. A recurring theme we see in the cases brought to us is that clients are often led on a path from the occult to religion.

I believe that such could be the case with this man as he dabbled with both Wicca and Satanism, though I cannot say definitively. These determinations take time to ascertain.

Allow me to explain this on a spiritual level. In the spirit, Satan has different aspects of spiritual warfare. Yet Satan’s kingdom is divided against itself. There are fallen angels who rule over different occult practices such as wicca, magic, kundalini, mysticism, eastern practices, etc.

On the other hand, there are fallen angels who specialize in religion, including Christianity. These two spiritual forces war with each other to rule the souls of people trying to find spiritual enlightenment, whether it be through the occult or religion.[1]

This gives way to the setup: By having someone dabble in the occult and then go to religion, they now not have just one brand of evil spirit influencing them, but two. This opens them up to different attacks of varying natures.

Matt was a prime target for attack by the enemy due to the darkness within his own soul as well as his external actions that gave ground to alcoholism, drug use and witchcraft. By using Wicca, he opened himself up to numerous demons and fallen angels specializing in the occult who led him down a dark path. He “got free” of this by his conversion to Christianity.

But I ask myself: was the conversion bona fide? The biggest red flag I see in all of this is his mention of seeing a mental image of Jesus, a vision. There is a fallen angel who masquerades as Jesus and is the author of millions of false conversions in this last hour via “accepting Jesus.”[2]

A vital component of all of this is that every supernatural experience where Christ is at the center needs to be examined thoroughly. The person must ensure that sin, repentance and resurrection were all involved in their conversion. Former partakers in the occult and false religion must detox themselves from those practices as well because Satan is trying to mock God by causing His people to be under the devil’s influence while they are unknowingly working for him.

As someone who has experience with this fake Jesus, one thing I can tell you about him is that he likes to mark his territory and flaunt himself whenever he gains a victory over someone. There is a very real possibility that this fallen angel was lording himself over Matt and showed himself to him as a means of gloating over the spiritual perversion that he led him into. I had the same thing happen to me!

Beyond this, Matt went straight into the institutional church which has been by and large infiltrated by Satan.[3] God is not there anymore. So why would God adopt Matt into His family and then send him to a place that is ruled by evil spirits for an extended period of time?

On the other hand, he claims to be free of mental illness and drugs. This is a good thing. But the enemy is clever and will happily give a person good things in the natural realm if it means he gets an iron grip on their soul. After all, that’s what this spiritual war that we’re in is about: the eternal fate and resting place of the men and women in the center of this battle between the Lord God and Satan.

Cases like this are pivotal for spiritual growth and understanding because it helps us see the layers of deception that are in play during these last days. We have to remain vigilant and not take things at face value, instead examining spiritual happenings and allowing time to expose if something is from God or the enemy.

In these last days, we are at war with the principalities and powers of the air. One of these angels is Jesus Sananda Immanuel, the Fake Jesus.

Creflo Dollar: Tithing & Tongues

14 Aug

            In 2005, Pastor Pamela Shepard dreamt of televangelist Creflo Dollar. He had keloids all over his head and was wearing raggedy, old clothes so filthy that he looked like he had been sleeping in them. He ran into an elevator of a project ghetto that was drenched in urine, exited onto another floor and began knocking on doors. Creflo was trying to gather a choir of singers from the neighborhood for his next church project.

There was Creflo Dollar: multimillionaire pastor who had once fundraised for a private jet, stuck in a puddle of urine with worn out clothes, begging for help in a run-down building.

17 years later on July 3rd, 2022, Creflo Dollar made headlines for stating that his past teachings on tithing – his pride and joy of a doctrine for decades beforehand – were incorrect.

“I want to start off by saying to you that I’m still growing and that the teachings I’ve shared in the times past on the subject of tithing were not correct. And today, I stand in humility to correct some things I have taught for years and believed for years, but could never understand it clearly because I had not been confronted with the Gospel of grace, which has made the difference.”

“I won’t apologize ‘cause if it wasn’t for me going down that route, I would have never ended up where I am right now. But I will say that I have no shame at all saying to you, throw away every book, every tape and every video I did on the subject of tithing unless it lines up with this.”

The implications of both this confession and the dream need to be seriously evaluated because they raise the following question: if Creflo Dollar was in error about his teachings on tithing in relation to the prosperity gospel, what other false doctrines was his audience practicing?

How could one who is born again be portrayed as having keloids on their head and around the mind when they should be wearing the helmet of salvation? A keloid is a scar that has not healed correctly, and Creflo Dollar being in an elevator filled with urine and wearing raggedy clothes is symbolic of uncleanness and unrighteousness. The dream suggests that Creflo Dollar is not actually rich, but poor in a spiritual sense and that he is not born again.

What the Lord is saying with this dream is that when Creflo Dollar apologizes, do not accept it as it is a scam. He is not born again and is deceived, teaching in error and persisting in doing so despite the apology.

The Deception of Tongues

            Creflo Dollar’s doctrines of the prosperity gospel and tongues were inspired by Kenneth Copeland, a prominent televangelist in the Charismatic movement. In the video above, we see Copeland with Dollar at his side as he speaks of an experience where a spirit came over him. Copeland soon found himself speaking in tongues to Creflo Dollar and even saying they interpreted their words to each other.

Tongues as defined in the Scriptures meant the speaking of different languages by the spirit. The “tongues” we hear in the church today (and even other religious buildings) is not a human language, but one that is uttered by evil spirits. They are two different things, with the current iteration of tongues being a tool by the devil.

Satan’s goal with tongues is to use the speaker to make a mockery of God by speaking forth evil upon ourselves, our families, loved ones, friends and nations all whilst being unaware of what we are saying. One could be speaking curses onto their own families and not even know it because they don’t understand what they’re saying. The words one speak have consequences in the spirit realm. How much more will those words do when the person is channeling evil spirits to speak through them?

We do not know if tongues has totally ceased. It is possible that in some part of the world that it is used legitimately. That said, it is much easier to interpret and translate other languages due to modern technology and the ability to learn languages being much more accessible than it was when the church spoke in tongues in the New Testament. Seek through the records of the church up to the 1900s and you will find there is no evidence of tongues being used.

We are in the 11th hour. This false practice of tongues is a latter-day assailment by the devil through the twisting of scripture to get people to curse themselves. The enemy has used prominent televangelists and church leaders to normalize the practice. This leads to the average person trying to achieve these things for themselves and opening the floodgates to spiritual torment and deception. We know because multiple clients have reported coming here because they experienced torment after speaking in tongues!

Evaluate Yourselves

            This ties us to a vital point for any Christian: we must humble ourselves or we will be unfruitful in God.

Creflo Dollar failed to fully show humility here, making a point to say that he was not going to apologize because his mistakes got him to where he is today. When he said this, I was aghast at how he made the entire ordeal about himself. I wonder how many millions of people wrongly tithed and how many hurt their own livelihoods because of Creflo. I wonder how many went too far with it and lost their savings out of misplaced faith because of his teachings. And yet, he asserts that he does not even owe them an apology because those errors in teaching led him to where he is now.

There is no humility in this. I am of the opinion that one led by the Spirit would feel remorse for teaching false doctrines to whom they believed were the elect of God. I see no regard for the damage he has done to the people whose lives were hurt by excessive tithing.

Due to Creflo Dollar’s teachings on tithing and the prosperity gospel, the poor have gotten poorer. People went broke over this. The concept of tithing and giving was distorted into a lottery game, with people who had little income giving all they had. Tithing was taught as a necessity for holiness, meaning people were scared to not tithe and thought they would be cursed if they didn’t. This is more fear-based teaching in the church.

I state that Creflo Dollar and his followers would benefit from seriously reevaluating everything he has taught. The prosperity gospel and tongues are both prevalent in the church yet are false teachings that were warned about in Paul’s epistles.

When one persists in false doctrines and lies, they find themselves entangled in a tight web that permits them from growing spiritually, often without even realizing it.

The Godly reaction to learning that one is wrong in their teaching is to cease it altogether and diligently reexamine everything they know. Creflo Dollar has influenced millions of people into deception and falsehood yet is planning on continuing his teachings. He needs to examine himself and realize that he is not in the faith and give up teaching.

In Creflo Dollar’s case, it could take years to undo all the deception he has learned. It is because of cases like this that we must remain vigilant and examine ourselves, both for our own souls and the good of the brethren. Identifying these teachings and discarding them so one can follow a path of truth is the proper response to falsehoods like these.

Have you found yourself harmed by teachings you learned in church? Do you find yourself questioning some of its teachings or if God is even there?

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!

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. If you find yourself seeking spiritual growth in Christ, give PSM a call at 888-818-1117 or email

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 or by telephone at 1-888-818-1117.
