Charismatic Divination

3 Jan

“New Age Divination is a branch of white magic whose primary goal is to obtain secret knowledge, particularly supernatural insight into the future.  Likewise, religious divination is the art of producing results beyond human ability and claiming that Almighty God is the source, when in reality, invisible superhuman entities manifested the result” (Idolatry,2011)

I cannot explain how many times this happened to me in the religious organization. I also participated in this type of divination unknowingly in the first years. As God began to open my eyes, I began to see the error in this type of participation and promptly stopped when He would reveal things.

One event was when I was worshiping during the beginning of service. We would always open service with music. The main objective was to “get closer to God.” This is impossible because once a person is saved, God never leaves us. We are to walk in faith, not by sight or feeling. This did not stop me every week however in the beginning to seek out that “feel good feeling.” In my ignorance, I believed that I had to “strive” to have a relationship with the Lord. This is an “out-and-out” sin as the Bible states we cannot please God without faith. While in worship one Sunday, about 2 years before I had left the “church” for good, I was in full worship, totally given over to emotion, when only the Holy Spirit could have  intervened. I know the Lord spoke to me on that day..He didn’t speak to me very often and it wasn’t like He was in my ear..His words were, “They worship me with their mouths, but their hearts are far away from me!”

This stopped me in my tracks and I became sober in an instant. No longer lost in an altered state, His words pierced me and it was the beginning of the end of the fantasy for me. Reality set in, my arms and hands went to my sides and from then on, I never, danced or worshiped in that way again.

Thinking that there was something wrong with me, I sought to find out instead of heeding what was said to me on that day. I eventually understood that the desire that was in me was never of God to begin with and when it was removed by God, I never felt the need to do it anymore. I believe God felt that “I was ready for the Truth.”

Since then I have never looked back but have kept my hand to the plow, looking forward. Like my mentor Pam, I do not want to become a pillar of salt by going back to Egypt. Gone are the days of doublemindedness. I have one mind, one heart and they belong to the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth.

Living A Crucified Life

3 Jan

In order to examine your priorities as a Christian, the first step is to make an assessment of your relationship to the world. Do you love the world?

Crucifixión

If after examination it turns out that your answer  is “yes,” then the love of the Father is not IN you.  In other words, you are not born again.  In  order to fully understand how to be crucified to the world, the terms need to be defined.

First of all, the world is not the earth.  The world is an invisible group of “systems” that the enemy of our souls is still the god of.  So in simple terms, if Jesus Christ of Nazareth is not Lord over a particular system, that system is a part of THE WORLD.  Put another way, if Christ is not the head of it, it is “the world.”  That includes people, places and things.  For example, if Christ is not the head of your family, then your family is “THE WORLD.”  If Christ is not the head of your school, then your school is “THE WORLD.” If Christ is not the head of your career, your sport, whatever, it is THE WORLD. If Christ is not the head of your church, SHE IS THE  ALL religious systems are a part of THE WORLD, if Jesus Christ of Nazareth is not the head of them.

Some have left the world, even the church world, but like Lot’s wife, the cross has not separated them from the longing that remains in their hearts for the world. So I warn everyone who has an ear to hear and an eye to see.  There is a religious world in our times  which is far more dangerous tha other systems that are obviously evil and a part of Satan’s domain. This religious world consists of professing Christians who deny the cross and the resurrection of Jesus Christ in more ways than one.

You see the cross symbolizes deliverance from this present evil age (Gal 1:4),—from the powers of darkness (Col 1:13)—from the devils and demons who rule the world under their leader, Satan–(Eph 6:12) and—-on the resurrection side of the cross—WE ARE TRANSLATED INTO THE KINGDOM OF THE SON OF GOD! When we plead the blood, we are telling the enemy that we are dead to his world, that he no longer has authority over us, that we walk in that same power that raised Jesus from the dead.

Yet–if we look back—Satan treats us as if we were “Lot’s wife.” The cross and the resurrection loses its victory in our lives.  If the world STILL has the power to attract us or to influence our spiritual walk, then we are not crucified.  If we are not crucified, then we are open and vulnerable to demonic attacks and the fate of Lot’s wife can be OUR fate.

We arrive on the resurrection side of the cross only AFTER we have been crucified to the world.  No crucifixion? No power to defeat the enemy. For we overcome Satan by the blood of the Lamb! Pleading the blood is of no consequence to demons if the one who stands as a deliverer of captives is not crucified to the world.

Recovery In Christ is a spiritual growth book with a manual. To be crucified to the world is one of a major themes of the book.

Spiritual Discernment in 2012

3 Jan

I have been saved, born again since Monday— March 29, 1977 at about 4pm. Yet, once I wrote the book “the Fake Jesus” about 5 years ago, I found myself cleaning out my own temple from the deceptive influence of Sananda, Ashtar and perhaps other so-called ascended masters. You see, this book   connects the dots between the church system, the new age movement and the ascended masters, aka the fallen angels.  I discovered in retrospect that once the demons lost me to the One True God, they immediately set out to derail His plan for my life. Through dreams and other supernatural experiences, I was deceived on many levels for almost  three decades..For 3 years BEFORE I was saved, I was steeped in the occult. I  also had healing powers and I was able to see into the future through astrology and other means. Once saved, my occult powers carried over into Christianity without my knowledge primarily because I was ignorant of Satan’s devices.  I’ve learned a lot about the enemy  in 38 years!

When you examine EVERYTHING, you are actually resisting  the devil and he shall flee from you, IF YOU PRESS ON!.

Whether in ignorance or by design, when a person has made an appeal to Satan’s services by either a formal pact or an informal agreement, that person has unwittingly submitted himself to the powers of darkness.. When signs, wonders and strange religious practices that did not emanate from the Holy Ghost are accepted as divine, a spiritual invitation is made to the fake Jesus. Without hesitation, the fake Jesus pushes his way through the doors of your soul. . My testimony is too long for one blog. However for the sake of the subject matter at hand, I can testify that I was  one who ignorantly made an informal pact with the fake Jesus by not properly severing ALL of my ties to my pre-conversion practices of occultism and mediumship.

Through presumption, I assumed that once saved, ALL of my occultic practices of the past were behind me, since I had burned all of my astrology and occultic books in 1983. My personal testimony is a classic example of how the fake Jesus can fool a true Christian by deception, capitalizing on its target’s ignorance of certain spiritual matters. Hosea’s word continues to ring true.(Hosea 4:6) God’s elect are overwhelmingly deceived and if we are not careful, ultimately destroyed by a lack of knowledge of how “all spiritual manifestations are NOT from God!”Another reason why I share various aspects of my own personal testimony is to give you hope and confidence that the principalities and the powers of heaven shall not win. We overcome by the blood of the Lamb and the word of our testimony and I am an overcomer.

Here is just one of several examples. I received tongues at a meeting held in Albany New York through the ministry of the late Kenneth Hagin. Hagin is really the founder of the word of faith movement as it is operating today. I have no idea whether or not Hagin was a false prophet or a deceived one. I simply look around as I view Charismania, and I know Hagin by his fruits. Anyway, I never truly embraced the way that I received tongues because it had no resemblance to the way the early church received this gift as revealed in the book of Acts. Yet, I grew to speak prolifically, at my own will, what charismatics call in “a prayer language.”

The reason why I have not been convinced about tongues is that for 25 years, I was not  able to find a bona-fide interpreter, nor was I able to interpret myself. So I ask, “Where are the interpreters?” The Holy Ghost does not expect me to throw away my commonsense. If I have prayed off and on for decades to receive the gift of interpretation of tongues as Paul suggests that we all do, 25 years  passed and I still found  no one, including myself to interpret my “prayer language”, good sense  suggested to me that the tongue that I received in 1983 is not from God. So if it is not from God, then who did it come from?

Well, its obvious. It didn’t come from me. I suspect that it came from one of the Ascended Masters, perhaps Sananda or Ashtar. What would be the reason for the demons to desire to imitate tongues? Well, if we don’t know what we are saying when we speak in an “unknown” tongue, we could very possibly be used by demonic beings to “decree and declare” that their will, purposes and agenda be done on earth, rather than that of the will of the Father of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob, the One, True and Only Creator–the one that Lucifer rebelled against in the first place.

I have been involved in almost all of what is passing itself off today as emanating from the Holy Ghost. Early on, I was groaning and weeping in very strange ways beginning in 1979.. Kenneth Copeland provided me with the explanation that I was looking for, confirming to me that my strange experience was a manifestation of intercessory prayer. Kenneth taught that the strange weeping and groaning that I did was a sacrificial work for the lost and the bound, emanating in travail from the Holy Ghost. TD Jakes and his “wailing women” seminars concur with Copeland. So Copeland, Jakes and others had  me convinced that God was using my travail to break yokes and bondages, ie. setting captives free. Since I believed that the Holy Ghost was using me to intercede, it is only natural that I held on to this strange work.

My mind was certainly unfruitful when I travailed and so often I tried to guess the reason behind it. I convinced myself that much of my groaning and weeping was for sinning preachers to repent. If so, it did not work. They just kept on sinning. I also laughed wildly in the spirit before I even heard of Hagin and Brown’s practice of what is called “holy laughter.”. My laughter was different, as I believed that the Holy Ghost was using me to laugh at the devil. When I laughed, I cried also. I found several scriptures to support my style of holy laughter and so I never tried this phenomena to see if it be of God. I just assumed that it was. The only supernatural experiences that I have not personally experienced is holy dance and shouting, African-American style. Perhaps that is because I have no cultural background in the South and I was not raised in an African-American Church or any church. In other words, holy dancing was not a part of my ancestral upbringing.

Furthermore, even though demons could no longer “step into me and speak,” some of my mediumistic traits DID survive my conversion. Nevertheless, when a counterfeit was exposed by the Holy Ghost in recent years, I have been duty bound to remove it by repenting and disavowing it. For example, I could heal BEFORE I was converted. I sucked pain out of people with my hands, particularly my left hand, BEFORE I was converted—proof that my healing gift was mediumistic and not charismatic, NOT OF THE HOLY GHOST.

Once I realized that my healing gift was tainted, I have made every effort not to touch anyone unless I am sure that I am being led by God to do so. I know today that more was required. I have come to the conclusion that my healing gift was not from God and therefore I  vehemently repented, rebuked, resisted and renounced it. Perhaps the Lord will give me the true gift of healing from the Holy Ghost. Perhaps not. I just kept  on cleaning house as I press toward the mark of my high calling and truth flooded down upon me like rivers of living waters.. I resisted the devil and he fled from me.

Here is another example of my occultic powers influencing my Christian service. Since  I could see into the future through astrology and through dreams BEFORE I was converted,  I had never learned the absolute necessity of trying the spirits to see if they be of God. As I look back over my Christian journey, some of my most significant dreams of future events that actually transpired were sent by the Fake Jesus. I see now with a clarity that I have never had before. The fake Jesus uses counterfeits of the Holy Ghost as “a hook.” Whenever I receive information  of a futuristic nature in a dream about people I know, I rebuked the spirit of divination. Now I rarely hear from this demon.

In the last seven years, when the Lord wants me to know the future, I just “KNOW IT.” Very quietly. Don’t have to see a thing. I walk in faith these days and I don’t have a need of knowing the future as I once did. I soberly remember the Lord’s warning: A PERVERSE NATION SEEKS AFTER A SIGN! So, yes, I can admit without reservation that I myself have been deceived by the fake Jesus, and it has taken all of 30 years to get clean. There is evidence that I am completely clean but seriously speaking, I can’t yet say that I am absolutely certain. I wait on the Lord for Him to expose what may yet need to be uncovered.

How do I feel as a dedicated believer in Jesus Christ of Nazareth, the Only and True Begotten Son of God who has been deceived by the Fake Jesus for decades? Do I feel like a failure,–fooled frustrated, faithless ? Bamboozled, run a muck? To that, I must say, emphatically NOOOOOOOO! I am joyous, relieved that real truth has truly revived  me and I am free at last!!!! .And I declare, ” BETTER LATE THAN NEVER!!!

You see, in my relentless search for truth, the Holy Ghost has granted me the wisdom to deny all mediumistic gifts once He has exposed them to me. However, He would not expose them to me until I was willing to humble myself, In 2012, I strongly recommend that all my readers humble themselves. To begin the process the first step involves questioning every significant supernatural experience that you have had since you believe you were saved, including your conversion experience. I would not recommend this step to you, if I did not take my own advice. Having been there and done that, I am pleased to report that  the quality and consistency of the wisdom that I have received in the last seven years as compared to the previous  27 years, is truly beyond comparison. And the wisdom of God just keeps on coming.

If you have been in the occult, you were in the hands of the fake Jesus. Once you became saved, the fake Jesus assigned a religious demon to you to attempt to make your Christian journey unfruitful. The deception is like a maze or an intricate spider web.  You may need help in unraveling the deception that the enemy has woven for years, even decades.  Help is available.

There Is Freedom In the Fear of the Lord!

2 Jan

I may shock you with this statement but I believe that the various life testimonies of biblical figures support my belief that those who are the hardest of heart are among those who call themselves “God’s People.” How many of you have heard a corrective message of reproof yet you continually sin and “do what you do?” Churchgoers who sit under a corrupt pastor—a man or woman who avoids presenting a hard word–don’t necessarily have a hard heart.  They have a dull, deceived heart.  If they were to “come out from among them,” there is hope for them.

cover_new_Come Out of HerMy book “Come Out of Her God’s People” includes my personal testimony of how I overcame 25 years of religious deception. In fact, God used a book, “War On the Saints,” to un-deceive me.  Yet those who are incurable are those who have been reproved by a pure, un-compromising word, and they STILL continue to sin. No one can stir their hearts because of their continual disobedience.

Dear reader, allow me to give you a test. How many times has the Holy Spirit pricked your conscience about fornication and refraining from the appearance of evil, yet you have continued to live according to the world’s standards where sex is concerned? Perhaps you have rationalized that as long as you have not been “penetrated,” that anal and oral sex is not fornication. How many warnings have you heard about harboring a secret sin and the benefits of confession to believers, yet you continue to pretend before the brethren that your life is clean and pure? What you need to know is that to enter into the secret place of God where you abide under His shadow of protection, you need to obey His word.

From the pulpits in these times, most messages you will hear are about love and they will be emotional. The truth is that God defines our love for Him by our obedience, without the usual excuses.  Simply put, if you cultivate “the fear of the Lord,” you WILL obey His every command, and in so doing, you will demonstrate to Him and most of all to yourself, how much you truly love Jesus Christ of Nazareth. Without the fear of the Lord, we are on a merry-go-round of sin, confession, forgiveness received, sin, rededication, over and over again. If you are in this vicious cycle, stop lying to yourself and others when you boast “I’m blessed!”  You are not blessed.  In fact, you are a curse about to happen!

Look around you.  The fear of the Lord can be taught by the calamities that are reported in the media. The problem is that any Christian who habitually lives and walks in sin cannot hear or discern the signs that erupt every day because of their disobedience. Demons are speaking to them of great blessings coming their way and so they are blind and dull of hearing the truth.Why? Because they refuse to be honest about their sin. Yet for those who want to learn, God will teach you the fear of the Lord.  Search Chronicles, Samuel and Kings.  Learn how God has dealt with the kings who did evil by disobeying Him and walking in their own ways and how the Lord departed from them. Read how the kings who practiced righteousness were blessed by Him, while the ones who did evil  were cursed.

So how should you cultivate a fear of the Lord? I suggest that you start out in 2012 by obeying the Lord in what you already know by staying true to the light you have already been given. Then get on your knees in prayer and ask the Father to put a holy fear in your spirit, so that you can be perfected in your love for Him. Pray “Lord, I want to walk in Your righteousness, to love you through my obedience to your word.” If you are sincere, then your promise for the New year is this. “And it shall come to pass, that before they call, I will answer, and while they are yet speaking, I WILL HEAR! (Isaiah 65:24) If you need someone to pray with you, call 888-818-1117 or write getreadyforthelord@gmail.com

Breaking Demonic Soulties

2 Jan
Black and red corset, black cuffs, kneeling
Image via Wikipedia

Does a family member manipulate you? Are you easily controlled and dominated? Are you free to be all that the Lord intends for you to be? Much demonic bondage is formed in childhood. For example, if a parent is manipulative, dominating and controlling, a spirit of witchcraft can enter, perhaps as a root of rejection. (Ex 2o:5)

A soul tie is the knitting together of two or more souls that can either bring tremendous blessing in a godly relationship or pervasive destruction. In a destructive soul tie, the will of the captive or victim is un-naturally affected by the stronger will of another,–the abuser or perpetrator— where the captive’s thoughts, emotions, and actions are no longer his or her own. Since we all form soulties with parents, family and other authority figures, no one is exempt from what I call “soul stealing.”  Here are some signs of soul stealing through an unholy soul tie:

  • Irrational thinking.  You act and do things that don’t make sense.  In such cases, you consistently evaluate your present circumstances according to a previous context–connected to some abuse you endured in the past.
  • You consistently lack joy and peace.
  • You are attracted to people who hurt you.
  • Your relationships are rarely mutually beneficial and you are always left with the short end of the stick.
  • You are often the one in bondage in a relationship.  You are the giver and your partner is always the taker.
  • You allow family members and friends to cause you to violate your own conscience and principles
  • You are easily maneuvered or manipulated by the negative emotions of others, ie their anger, temper, guilt trips and outbursts.

You can’t always run from folk, especially parents, spouses and family members. I have found that the solution is twofold: you must first learn how to govern your own emotions and reactions,  by building up your free will and self authority and then you need for someone like me to cast out that persons spirit from you as if it were a demon. As quiet as it is kept, it is actually  an unseen demon that has helped the aggressor to snatch your soul and en-trap you into a demonic soul tie that the world calls “a co-dependent relationship.”. The demonic or ungodly soul tie is like an invisible rope between you and the perpetrator.  I write about it in more detail in “Faces of the Religious Demon.”  Here is a brief excerpt.

“Counseling should place emphasis on no regrets or brooding over things done and undone. To avoid irrational thinking, the captive must re-learn through counseling, how to discern for himself if he is simply ‘thinking,’ or is he being drawn into a state of regretting or brooding,  Victory in deliverance necessitates victory over the past, in spite of all its failures. the failures should be dealt with on the basis of I John 1:9. Furthermore, the captive need to learn how to discern his or her own thoughts from those implanted into his mind by demons who use the perpetrator “as a voice.”

In conjunction with deliverance counseling, the truth is that  the perpetrator’s  spirit may have to be cast out of you, as if it were a demon.  Are you ready to be delivered?  If so, give me a call at 888-818-1117 to make an appointment for deliverance counseling.

IS JESUS CHRIST OF NAZARETH A MYTH?

4 Nov

IS JESUS CHRIST A MYTH?????

There are countless ungodly, faithless historians that have accumulated and shared lots of facts in order to either hide or distort the truth about the Lord Jesus Christ. With the advent of the video clip, the enemy is sending forth a subtle and at times a quite blatant message that the story of Jesus Christ is a fabrication, just because a similar story can be found in Egyptian, Greek or Roman mythology. What intellectual fools!

As the scriptures reveal, real  truth  about the gospel is foolishness to the intelligent who believe themselves to be  so wise and God Himself will cause them to believe what their finite frontal lobes  are too small to apprehend about either Him or His adversary,the devil.

Okay. Let’s keep it real and simple for those of us who need a no brainer. Who is behind mythology? the devil. When did the devil find out about the Son of God bruising his head? He found out in the garden as depicted in Genesis 3. So—it is obvious. The devil planted similar stories about the Lord in various Egyptian, Hindu, Greek and Roman mythologies so that intelligent fools would come along in OUR times and say “Look yall, the bible stole from the Egyptians, the Greeks and the Romans”, all to underhandedly  discredit the bible and the power of the cross and the resurrection.

Well, it just won’t work with me.

You see, I was a myth buster from the time I was three  and told my family on Christmas Day, “there is no such thing as Santa cause all of YOU brought me these gifts. I don’t believe in reindeer, elves or none a dat stuff.”

I carried my childhood  cynicism into my adult life. I said “there is no such thing as heaven or hell. So let  me live fast, die young and look good in my coffin. Jesus is a figment of the white man’s imagination to keep my black people in bondage, so in slavery times, they sold us a bill a goods to keep us passive. Then again, if God exists, and I don’t believe He does by the way—I really don’t care because the world is in such a mess, so He must not know what He is doing. Anyway, I prefer to go to hell cause heaven is too boring for me. I don’t want to sit around all day, playing a harp on  no cloud!”

Now people, with a mindset like THAT, HOW do you suppose someone  like me got born again?

I had never been to church in 33 years, never read the bible, could not stand religious people so I shunned them like the plague, never handed a tract and immediately turned Billy Graham off the TV once I heard his voice or saw his face! I was a myth buster!!! So how did it happen?

Born Again on Monday, 3/29/77 at 4pm

Not to keep you in suspense, I had a Damascus Road experience, spiritually knocked off of my high horse by the Holy Ghost.  He made Jesus real to me in such a way that my myth bustin, atheistic, faithless  days were shot to hell!!!!!!!!
