Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me, 10 declaring the end from the beginning, and from ancient times the things that are not yet done, saying, My counsel shall stand, and I will do all my pleasure:11 calling a ravenous bird from the east, the man that executeth my counsel from a far country: yea, I have spoken it, I will also bring it to pass; I have purposed it, I will also do it.
Surely the Sovereign Lord does nothing without revealing his plan to his servants the prophets
Prophecy is important in our lives as believers, from Old Testament saints like Joseph who learned about the famine before it happened, to Abram who God gave a new name Abraham meaning the father of many nations before Isaac or Ishmael was born. Prophet Isaiah wrote about Jesus and one of David’s Psalm foreshadowed the born again experience when he wrote ‘create in me a clean heart and renew a right spirit within me’. There are many other examples that show that our God is a God of prophecy
The Enemy & Counterfeit Prophecies
Many Christians go through experiences where pastors give them a prophetic word about their finances, current or potential spouses, children, etc. These prophecies are mainly about God prospering the believer with worldly possessions. The problem with these prophecies is that they are fleshly and appeal to our human desires. Prophecies like this make us the center and shows as if God is in servitude to humans. God is not at our beck and call and any teaching that says God is out to fulfill our desires is a false teaching.
There are those interpreting end time prophecies on various social media platforms but then tell viewers to make a choice for God. In doing so, they mix a truth with a lie and lead people to more bondage. Most of them probably don’t even know they are wrong. I personally was led into accepting Jesus through the sinner’s prayer after watching a “prophetic” end-time movie. The sinner’s prayer gave demons legal right in my life which led to a decade of deception and torment until I was delivered by learning the truth.
Confusion surrounding prophecies – have they occurred or not? The preterist view states that certain scriptures were fulfilled a long time ago, and futurism interprets the same scripture stating that it will happen in the future. Both views were created with the intention to throw off believers in the middle ages from interpreting scripture surrounding the anti-Christ.
There is also a practice many do called bibliomancy – where one take scriptures or reads a bible character’s story and prophecy the same for themselves. Scriptures need to be read in context meaning you have to determine who the audience is and whether the topic addressed relates to you. A bible character’s story is not to be used to justify personal mistakes, a good example is many who are caught in adultery, are always quick to mention David and speak on how he was still God’s chosen. David’s adultery doesn’t give anyone else the license to engage in promiscuity or adultery. The same people who want to use David’s story show how they cherry pick verses to their liking because the same David suffered for the sin he committed. Just because God said he was a man after his own heart did not make him immune from the consequences of his sin.
End time prophecies have been used to create fear; people don’t like to touch the subject as they find it too complex. This leaves many vulnerable to false prophecies which they are unable to test and discern its source and motive.
Many are confused as to what they should be looking for due to so many views and mostly importantly many are being led to deception by saying the sinner’s prayer which opens them up to be demonized.
Distraction – if a prophecy can have you looking in the wrong direction you are pretty much a sitting duck for the enemy e.g. if you get a prophecy that you will be married in a year or so, chances are you will marry someone who shows up in that time-frame who is completely wrong for you.
Apathy – people have grown increasingly weary of hearing that Jesus is coming back as they have heard many prophecies giving the specific date of his return only for it not to happen. What’s even more tragic is that because of this alot of people are mocking what is actually going to happen to their own demise.
The purpose of prophecy is for God to reveal his plans before they unfold. Another reason is stated clearly in 1 Corinthians 14:3
“But the one who prophesies speaks to people for their strengthening, encouraging and comfort.”
Prophecy is important in a believer’s life and should not be used to promote fear but to forewarn, strengthen, encourage and comfort.
Believers should handle prophecy by testing all things, if it contradicts the scripture then don’t follow it.
1 Thessalonians 5:19-22 Do not quench the Spirit. Do not treat prophecies with contempt but test them all; hold on to what is good, reject every kind of evil.

The apostle Paul wrote the Ephesians and explained that all sinners are dead in their trespasses and sins. (Ephesians 2:1-9)
So if when we are sinners we are dead, how can we save ourselves by making a decision to “accept Jesus?”
This morning, I had a dream about a former enemy. In the dream, she was attacking me on all levels. I recalled all her old beefs with me, as they were made perfectly clear while I was still in the dreaming state of consciousness. However, immediately upon awakening, I realized the futility of my enemy’s dream state attack. For even though she is alive in the spirit, in her body she is dead. Consequently, this former enemy is truly “former” as she has been dead for about ten years now.
So when I look back to March 29, 1977, at around 4 pm on a Monday, I did not make a choice as there was no spiritual decision that I was capable of making as a vocal, seriously determined atheist who had never been to church in 33 years. I was dead in my trespasses and sins.
Yet in a split second, I was no longer an atheist. How did that happen?
I had been convicted of sin a few hours before. Nevertheless, I did not know what was going on until I read the bible days and even months later.
I had grieving over the sin that was revealed to me and I called a friend to seek help to stop the grief. While on the phone, the sorrow that had begun over myself, in a split second, it turned to the Lord. I blurted out “I am crying for what they did to Jesus. ” These words shocked me as if spoken by someone else.
Yet I did not get even a few seconds of opportunity to question that shocking confession when suddenly, a light bulb turns on in my head with a powerful thought. Pam, EVERYTHING YOU HEARD ABOUT JESUS IS TRUE.
What had I heard which I mocked and laughed at for decades had been gleaned through the holiday messages and deMille movies—that Jesus Christ died for my sins and that He is alive!
I found myself in a state of absolute shock. Faith was dropped into me like a coin into a slot machine. I started to travail like a woman about to give birth. I saw in a vision a hand of light going into my chest area. I travailed with groans for about 3 or 4 times.
Then, boom. Unspeakable joy. THE BABY WAS DELIVERED. I felt like I had literally just been born. I had no past. All burdens of sin removed, forgiven, washed and cleansed. Tears of sorrow turned to joy. Think of what you do when your team wins in a game. Multiply that by 100 and that was me.
As stated, this phenomenal experience occurred while I was on the phone with a non-Christian friend, Vivian. It started when she asked me to explain to her the reason why I could not stop weeping. Once the rebirth took place, I suppose I dropped the phone and she remained on the line. So while I was rejoicing, I picked up the phone again, and Vivian spoke. “you have just given birth to your new spirit in Christ Jesus. Go run a tub of water and baptize yourself in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost.”
A few months later, Vivian did not remember any of this while it has been vividly planted in MY mind for 40 years.
I was dead in trespasses and sins. I was an atheist who had never been to church. No one gave me a tract. NO one invited me to their church. I turned off Billy Graham before I could hear his sermon. In fact, my ability to make a choice for Christ was overpowered by strong unbelief. I did not choose Christ.
HE CHOSE ME!!!
When did He choose me?
HE CHOSE ME AT THE SAME TIME HE CHOSE ALL OF HIS ELECT. ACCORDING TO EPHESIANS 1:4,5. The Lord chose me before the foundation of the world, according to the good pleasure of HIS will, And not mine!

THE IMPORTANCE OF THE TRANCE IN END TIMES
The Holy Ghost stepped into my occult world and brought me to the cross, without my even seeking God. Remarkably,with in the twinkling of an eye, I was snatched out of a fallen angel’s hands on March 29, 1977 at 4pm on a Monday. So when I began to do the research in 2007 for the book “the Fake Jesus,” my intention as a former occultist transformed into a woman of God, was to “spy out the Land that I formerly dwelled in.”
The purpose of my investigation was an attempt to answer 4 questions: 1. What are the fallen angels telling their occult followers? 2. What is their endtime agenda? 3. How do the fallen angels plan to implement that agenda? 4. How can the elect of God protect themselves from it? Throughout the research, one key word stood out: the altered state of consciousness, better known as “the trance.”
In 1974, I was two dimensional: just body and mind—a concrete, down to earth, rational thinker. Every thing changed when I began to study and practice relaxation therapy and hypnosis on myself and in my profession. I opened up my psychic powers, latent in my dead, un-saved spirit. Within months, I found myself in a dangerous whirlwind of every facet of mediumship: out of body experiences, divination, poltergeist, astrology, reincarnation, communication with fallen angels who first masquaraded as the dead, seeing spirits, hearing them speak, spirits walking into me and speaking in voices different from my own—you name it. Just a few months after regularly putting myself into a trance, my spirit was wide open for demons to walk in and out, say and do whatever they wanted to do.
So as a former hypnotist, I know a little something about trances. Anyway, what I discovered is the absolute necessity of the trance to fallen angels. First of all, without the trance, it is very difficult for fallen angels to communicate with human beings. SO THEY REALLY NEED THE TRANCE TO MAKE THEIR DESIRES KNOWN. Besides hypnosis, yoga, chanting and various forms of meditation, the trance or the ASC is obtainable by several methods and ways—drugs, sex, habits, rituals, routines and repetitive actions, trauma, and something that the founder of sociology, Max Weber labeled “communal intoxication.”
Communal intoxication is the supernatural ability of magicians, wizards, witches, and CHARISMATIC RELIGIOUS LEADERS. Such leaders induce the ASC in their followers, including but not limited to convulsions, shouting, “holy” laughter, slain in the spirit, “holy” rollers and what is now being referred to as the kundalini spirit of charismatic witchcraft. Also, and MOST important, any one who speaks in what charismatics and pentecostals call “a prayer language” where their minds are unfruitful, enters into an altered state of consciousness. I know. I did so for 25 years. I don’t—-ANY MORE!!!
I aim to keep this post as short as possible, so I will get right to my point. Simply put,what I discovered is that the top fallen angel who is called Maitreya, plans to perform a feat in the endtimes that requires a global use of THE TRANCE. It also involves untold millions of lower ranking demons—the ones who are assigned to you and to me. Benjamin Creme, nicknamed the John the Baptist of Maitreya, has revealed the endtime agenda of Maitreya. To prove that Satan is God, Matreiya plans to telepathically speak and say the exact same thing at the exact same time to all of mankind—at least to those who have been groomed IN THE TRANCE. Since neither Satan nor any fallen angel can be in more than one place at a time, it is a trick. The demons who are IN human beings through the trance will each be speaking to the one they have been grooming in the trance through drugs, meditation, slain in the spirit, “whatever!!!
In this way, they will stage a magical farce, where the fake Jesus will appear to be God: Omniscient, Omnipotent and Omnipresent—ALL KNOWING, ALL POWERFUL, AND EVERYWHERE PRESENT!

For all of Pastor Pam’s books go to http://www.lulu.com/spotlight/pam_s911
As a member of RESCUE who has experienced being set free from demons, one of the things that surprised me as I went through counseling and detoxed from religion was the fact that I had engaged in witchcraft without my knowledge. Looking back I never interacted with people who engaged in witchcraft. In fact, to my knowledge,i never even read occult books or watched any occult shows. I considered such things as the worship of the devil— pure evil which i didn’t want to be associated with.
Consequently, It was shocking and humbling to discover that some of my self- righteous religious acts were no different from those of a new age practitioner . So even though I never engaged in the occult, it was shocking to discover that I learned witchcraft practices in the Institutional Church.
Witchcraft can simply be defined as the practice of magic, the use of spells and invoking spirits.
There are several ways that I was duped into witchcraft while attending an Institutional church.
I owned several spiritual warfare books and recited statements that involved commanding “angels”, the stars, planets and even God. I would bind the devil and cast him back to hell. These prayers used scripture out of context. For sure, no human can command God to do anything, so to think otherwise is foolish. We lie to ourselves if we think God is at our beck and call.
To command the sun, moon, planets and stars is delusional, but to command angels has a dangerous spin to it. Gods’ angels do not accept our invitations or instructions but fallen angels do, in order for the devil to have legal right to be in your life, you have to invite him in.
My invitation to these fallen angels had severe consequences. I started suffering from demonic torment – my mind, body and soul was under constant attack. My fear grew greatly as the attacks would happen mainly at night.
During prayer meetings, people used to be manipulated to change their ways by being shamed in public prayers where intercessors would air out people’s issues. When ministers control & manipulate people’s behavior, their actions are a clear sign of witchcraft. There are many examples of how people are controlled in the church and public prayer is one of the them.
To counter the demonic torment that I suffered from, I turned to more rituals – applying anointing oil on my bed, door, windows, ceilings and on myself. Inviting the Holy Spirit to come in and fill my apartment, I played worship music and recited bible verses and prayers. None of this helped, In fact, I simply added fuel to the fire. My religious acts were also motivated by fear not faith.
I would also, seek out random passages in the Bible and apply them to my life with no regard for the context. I also used it to “decree and declare” my future and pray for certain events to occur. This practice which I was taught in the church actually comes from the Middle ages where people who practiced divination would open the bible and whichever page they landed upon, they would read out the scripture and use it to give spiritual insight into what they are looking for. I was pretty much behaving like my own psychic.
Worshipping in the flesh
The Bridal paradigm in the church has brought about the increase of love songs to Jesus which are disguised as praise and worship songs. Everytime I engaged in a worship session, I would feel warm and tingly in my chest, I assumed that these were “feelings of God’s love” overflowing in me. These experiences were short lived which caused me to depend upon an emotional roller-coaster. The more I felt unloved,the more needed to attend more worship sessions to feel loved. I’ve come to learn that love is not a feeling & more importantly the Holy Spirit does not entertain our flesh. These manifestations of “love” were all sensual and had nothing to do with the Spirit of God. True believers of the Lord Jesus have to worship in Spirit & in Truth.
In the New Idolatry, Pastor Pam Sheppard writes in detail how witchcraft has infiltrated the Institutional Church, One part that stood out to me is how a new age practitioner and a Charismatic Christian could address a similar issue using methods that many would assume are worlds apart, when in reality, they actually are similar and run parallel to each other. Below is an excerpt from the book:-
“For the sake of comparison, consider how both a new age practitioner and a Charismatic Christian would approach a typical problem, namely, a woman seeking to stop the infidelity of a lover or husband. From the occultist, the woman might be required to purchase a defense enchantment like burying her man’s shirt at full moon, while pronouncing a curse or a magic formula seven times. As the shirt wears out and disintegrates in the ground overtime, so also will the man’s love for the other woman fade and dissolve.
Both the occultists and those deceived by charismatic teachings rely on the credulity and readiness of those they counsel and advise. In like manner, charismatic witchcraft might approach this classic problem from a variety of religious perspectives, with the twist that God is made amenable to the woman’s plans. Supernatural dreams and visions labeled the discerning of spirits, a word of wisdom, a word of knowledge and prophecy, intercessory prayers of “binding and loosing” and the taking of scripture out of their natural context and applying them to the woman’s personal agenda are the primary methods of choice. In this instance, the woman might be advised to pray over her man’s side of the bed, anoint it with oil or holy water, name it and claim it by sending forth evil prayers against her man’s lover, in unsavory ways unbefitting to Jesus Christ, and pray controlling, manipulative prayers to change the man’s behavior.Rather than deal openly with the issues of infidelity, sin and spousal abuse, Charismatics are infamous for seeking “the supernatural solution.”
To my dismay, I learned, that many practices both in and out of the church that are widely accepted as normal today actually have their origins in witchcraft. I thank God for my deliverance journey that started when I reached out to Pastor Pam who walked me through the deliverance process, helped me break my false conversion and discard false teachings. I got healed from my torment once I received the truth about the Lord Jesus Christ.
Since we live in such deceptive times, you could be engaging in witchcraft practices, totally unaware. The danger in doing so is you open yourself up to the spiritual world and give demons legal rights to enter your life and run it amok.

Mistakes and Deliverance
It has been my experience that the doorway UNKNOWINGLY left wide open to demonic torment is a captive’s fear of ever making a mistake. Demons take great pleasure in tormenting people who they can control with criticism, shame and accusation. As a deliverance counselor, I realize that for each captive, there is a different root cause. For the most part, a fear of making a mistake comes from how you were raised. Those who have been under the authority of extremely judgmental, critical parenting are inclined to either become passive or aggressive in their response to this fear.
The passive ones try to “always be correct and proper” because they are afraid of suffering the consequences that judgmental parenting brings. On my web caseload over the last 14 years, those who are constantly hearing critical, accusing voices in their minds have been raised by critical, judgmental parents. Perfectionism in passive people also leads them to be ardent people pleasers–a breeding ground for depression.
The aggressive folks tend to become the rebels of the world who often seem to make mistakes on purpose and by design because they simply enjoy annoying people. In other words, “if you made me the black sheep of the family, I’m going to play that role with style and gusto! If you told me when I was 10 years old that I am going to be no good, just like my father, well, I am going to be “my father” to the 25th power. So watch me, Mom, as I go through the revolving prison door of recidivism. Watch me and suffer Mom, because you have tried to frame me with a fear of being like a Dad that I didn’t even know, because of you and YOUR failures!
Here is another pattern. January 2 of every year could be renamed “Get Rid of the Fat Day. There are unseen reasons why some of us got fat. Here is the scenario for the rebel: ” If you have called me “fat” all of my life when I was not fat but voluptuous and my sensuality disturbed you, Mom—-I am REALLY going to become fat just to show you what FAT REALLY IS AND that I don’t care what you think of my body type!!!!”
Scenarios like these are often played out on a sub-conscious level. Anytime you don’t know who you are and why you are behaving the way that you do, you are a prime target for demonic interference. As a deliverance counselor, this is the reason why I am less concerned about whether or not you ever experimented with the occult or drugs than I am about how you deal with “making mistakes.” It does not take a great deal of education to become a great learner. Learning involves listening and mimicking. Even if we can’t read or write, life itself is going to teach us something!!!” If you have never made a mistake then you have not learned very much.
For the Christian in particular, God designs the lessons of life disguised in the form of obstacles, mistakes and difficulties through a maze of trials, tribulations, troubles and tests. Why? Because the Christian walk in the spirit by faith in God alone is what earns us our eternal crowns. Without any ashes, there is no beauty. Without failure, there is no glory. Without falling, we really don’t know how to stand. We are sinners who must totally rely on the Holy Spirit’s leading in order to please a perfect God. He is pleased when we can resist the pride of our sinful nature and embrace our ashes.
I was born 73 years ago. I was born again 40 years ago. All I have to give to God is a life of mistakes and failures. These are my infirmities, and like Paul, I actually glory in them. I know that I glory in them because when I speak or write about my mistakes, I have no inner pulling of sorrow, shame or regret in my heart. I know that I glory in them because I give practically no thought or expression to the things that man would consider successful accomplishments. I glory in my mistakes because I have come to know that the power of Jesus Christ of Nazareth is all over me when I can acknowledge my own weaknesses.
There is a difference between making a mistake and being a mistake. If I am in Christ, then I am not a mistake. On the contrary, if I rely on “self,” then I am functioning as a mistake. What the bible confirms is that God did not believe that I was a mistake or I would not be here. God does not believe that YOU are a mistake or YOU would not be here either. When we begin to see even an iota of how big and all-consuming God is, then we will stop worrying about our mistakes and the demons that are assigned to us will be bound and gagged.
Twenty eight years ago, I committed a serious sin that brought about its consequences and its ramifications. On last Friday, the religious demon assigned to me sent me a dream that showed me committing the exact same sin and “loving it.” Demons rarely accuse me of sin because they know that I don’t receive or respond to their guilt trips. However, THIS time, they “got me good” because the dream disturbed at least half of my day. The dream was a mockery. What I found offensive is that I was shown that I still have the desire to do the exact same thing, a sin that would be extremely hurtful to God as well as to other people whom I would certainly hurt.
Do I have the desire to commit the sin again? Absolutely not. Would I do so if tempted? Absolutely not. However, here is the truth of it. The flesh DOES NOT CHANGE! In my flesh, I am STILL capable of committing the exact same sin TODAY!!! Yet, though I am capable, I WILL not do it. Why not? Because I don’t walk in the flesh. I walk in the spirit. And because of Jesus Christ, the desires of my heart and my spirit HAVE CHANGED. There is NO CONDEMNATION TO THOSE WHO ARE IN CHRIST JESUS.
You see, Brethren, Christians who are afraid of making mistakes focus on self-righteousness and not on the righteousness of God in Christ. They are not looking to the cross. They are looking to self. They are trying to please God just as they tried to please their earthly parents. Yet our understanding and practice of perfection is totally different from God’s as it pertains to His people. Take Job, as our classic biblical example. He was as perfect as man can get, pleasing to God, yet prior to Calvary.
That was Job’s problem. He was toooo perfect. He had no mistakes to draw from. Without the mistakes, Job really did not know God very well. Once God allowed the devil to attack Job, Job’s hidden mistakes were revealed. He was focused on “self-righteousness. The true nature of God was also revealed. Once confronted by his religious friends, Job became defensive. Defensiveness is an outgrowth of pride. If you are defensive, then even the very thought of making a mistake becomes a bondage to you. On the real, face it. Mistakes are part of our lives and we will keep making mistakes till our last breath. In my book, “Faces of the Religious Demon” are scores of case summaries of professing Christians who religious demons tormented because their captives were afraid of making mistakes. For one reason or another, deliverance counseling uncovered a complicated pride system at the root.
If I am speaking to YOU, then deliverance counseling or mentoring will help you get the victory in 2017. So call and book a telephone session. 1-888-818-1117

HOW A FALSE CONVERSION OCCURS
Because the spirit and the soul are not separate but tightly knitted or braided around each other as are the ligaments, marrow and jonts in our legs, it is difficult to discern the difference between the two. The soul is easiest to recognize because the concerns and needs of “self” are generally apparent. We recognize the “body” side of the soul because we can see the results through the activity of the natural frame. We can see selfishness, ambition, competition, and jealousy because the body, through material and natural things, will engage in scenarios that expose self striving.
However, where we fall short is in our ability to discern the soul from the spirit, which is also “flesh.” I am considering a gospel account of the words of the Lord when a funeral procession went by. He turned to his disciples and said, “let the dead bury the dead.” How can the dead bury the dead? What Jesus was actually saying is “let the spiritually dead bury the physically dead.” Meaning: those who are alive in both the body and the soul have a dead spirit. A dead spirit is one that is separated, alienated, and without God in the world. That is a dead spirit. It doesn’t mean that there is no awareness or activity in the spirit.
The spirit of the lost is very much alive in the kingdom of darkness, but he or she is alienated from the kingdom of heaven. It makes itself known through various nightmares and irrational fears. When it is active, man’s dead spirit is open to the hellish dark world of spirits ruled over by the Prince of darkness. When it is both active AND powerful, the spirit is capable of a variety of supernatural feats including but not limited to clairvoyance, clairaudience and astral travel or out of body experiences.
When a lost or alienated person “accepts Jesus” as Lord and Savior, it can’t be the spirit who does so because the spirit of that person is dead, alienated, and walking according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that works in those who are disobedient by the lust of their flesh. In such a condition, the soul has to take over. In the lost, the soul fulfills the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and the lost person has the nature of self consciousness.
So since a dead spirit cannot “accept God,” the soul takes over in its parts: mind, emotions and volition or will and says, “I accept Jesus as Lord and Savior” and begins a religious ritual that imitates intimacy and relationship. The working of the enemy through the mind or ideas of man quenches the work of the Holy Ghost to quicken that person’s spirit. For the powers of darkness are keenly clever in working alongside of and simulating the born again experience.
When a person is REALLY born again, the soul takes a back seat. The Holy Ghost “quickens” the spirit through repentance. As defined by Paul to the Ephesians, to quicken means to be made alive. As Jesus Christ was raised from the dead physically or bodily, to be born again is to be raised from the dead spiritually. In other words, a dead spirit has been raised to becoming a vessel for the Holy Ghost. Since the spirit does not have a will, volition is a choice or decision made by the soul. What the spirit has is intuition. Paul revealed that the reason the spirit is raised from the dead is because “God is rich in mercy.” So the resurrection of the spirit begins in the intuition and then translated into understanding by the soul.
When the soul “accepts Jesus,” the spirit remains dead but with great acting skills, the soul can religiously imitate the things of God. The fallen spirit of man, alienated and separated from God is sunk down into the soul so that the soul manifests as intellect or sensuality, often in both. In such cases, the soul reigns over both the spirit and the body. The way that the new life reaches the spirit is shown in the Lord’s own words: You must be born again. The Holy Ghost “breathes” where ever He chooses. This is not the decision of man but the will of God.
The believer who has been raised from the dead in the spirit to newness of like is born of the Spirit or “born again.” The Holy Ghost, who takes up a dwelling place in the reborn spirit, has given the believer a revelation of the Cross and the Lord’s resurrection. This revelation is first received in the spirit. As James indicates in his letter, the wisdom that is from above—from the Holy Spirit—is pure, peaceable, gentle, merciful—without any element of the life of the soul—opinions, self views, strife-jealousy. So when a person is born again, the spirit imparts understanding to the soul through the mind, will and the emotions.
What is happening among those who claim that “they accepted Jesus,” is that they have done so through the soul and therefore, their spirits have remained dead. The intellect of one whose spirit is dead is decidedly fallible and becomes the most dangerous of the soul’s gifts because God seekers use their minds to understand spiritual truths. The scriptures reveal that the soulish man cannot receive the things of the Spirit, because they can only be spiritually discerned.
According to the late great Jessie Penn Lewis, “It is the soulish element in teachers and professors of holiness, which is often the cause of separation and disunion. There may be, it is true, love in the heart to those who ‘differ,’ but the ‘differences’ divide nevertheless, because the demoniacal powers, able to work upon the soulish element in the believer, always emphasize or exaggerate the difference in “views of truth,” instead of magnifying the points of union, and even drive eager believers to ‘fight’ for their view of ‘truth,‘ under the name of ‘witnessing for God.” It is also the soulish element in Christians which insists upon the minute correspondence of others its ‘views of truth,’ and ‘tithe mint and anise and cumin’, in words whilst leaving ‘undone the weightier matters of the law’—which in the gospel dispensation of the Spirit between believers as the condition of their growth into ‘unity of the faith. ‘In brief, the soul-life, influenced by evil supernatural powers, is the main cause of divisions and separation among the professing, and even the true children of God.”
For this reason as pointed out by Sis. Jessie, the churches are filled with nominal worshippers of Christ, who show no marks of a true Christian life within them. In a nutshell, influences that bypass the spirit and only reach the soul may prepare the way by bringing the seeker within the reach of the truth which is read from the scriptures. Outer strivings may make for a kind self righteousness that has a value and place in the world. However, by virtue of these outer trappings, such seekers will be fooled into believing that the strivings of the soul is evidence that he or she is born again. Not so. Since God views self righteous as filthy rags, the spirits of such seekers is untouched. Dead. Alienated. Without God.
Those whose souls imitate salvation are diversified. Dynamic personalities sway and move the emotions of others. Their fruit—like TD Jakes for example—is to move the emotions of the soul. The problem is that the faith of the hearers stands in the influence or wisdom of people like TD, and not in the power of God. Intellectuals uses schemes to reach men and bring them to God, some preaching hell and damnation to frighten people to God, others using heaven, prosperity, gospelfests, social fellowship, networking etc.
The outcome is that people are attracted to the fake Jesus, and not of Jesus Christ of Nazareth. What happens is a dangerous thing, so dangerous, that I will have to address it in more detail Part III. Suffice it to say for now, that people who are deceived into believing that they got born again, STILL have a dead spirit. When dead, the spirit is susceptible to the evil side of the spirit world where psychic power is mistaken for the gifts of the Holy Ghost. Consequently, unsaved people are speaking in tongues, laying hands on others, imparting demons into vulnerable people. Also, when people with dead spirits pray to the Father in the name of His Son, the one who answers their prayers is the imposter, the Fake Jesus.
Can a person whose spirit has been quickened STILL allow his or her soul to dominate? Most decidedly YES. These are those who have a sensual relationship with Jesus. When they speak of “being in His presence,” they are not satisfied unless they can feel the presence of God continually upon their flesh, and almost bi-polar in the spirit, they experience loads of ups and downs akin to spiritual mood swings. They need to be taught how to walk by faith and not by sight or feeling. Although the Holy Spirit dwells in their spirits, they often allow the soul to predominate because they do not understand the spirit life and the actions of the human spirit in co-action with God.

Spiritual torment is a sign that if you believe you are born again, you are not, and you are the victim of a false conversion. In such cases, torment can be considered a blessing because it will wake you up to realize that God does not give a spirit of fear or torment, but His goal is that you have a sound mind.
So it stands to reason if your intrusive, even blasphemous thought, the accusing, condemning voices and the horrendous and shameful visions did not come from God, you know they did not origin with you, so the culprit has to be evil Spirits from Satan and from the spirit of the Antichrist.
RESCUE Deliverance Ministry is unique because we do not confront evil spirits until you have been strengthened with might in your inner man. So our strategy will prepare you to retrieve the stolen ground inch by inch, progressively and gradually. After all, it is rare that the enemy took the ground suddenly. It may seem so because you were not aware of the gradual and progressive manner the enemy infiltrated and begin stealing your soul, inch by inch. Then one day it will seem as if he took charge suddenly and quickly while you were not watching.
We warn those we help that on occasion, situations may appear to turn worse as you attempt to recover. Nevertheless, if you persist, you shall witness the adversary steadily losing his power. Your symptoms will progressively decrease as the territory is increasingly regained. You will notice that your mind, with its memory, imagination and reasoning powers, gradually becoming free so that you can use it again. But we warn you, not to become complacent and cease to fight to the end. In other words, just because your symptoms have abated does not mean you can relax. For if you do so, you will provide evil spirits with an opening and an advantage to re-design his attack in the near future. Consequently, we advise you to continue to restore your control over your will power until you are completely free. Should you stand on the foundation of the Lord’s victory of the cross and exercise your mind to resist the enemy’s conditioning, you shall soon be delivered completely. You shall become master of your own mental life.
- What was stolen from you shall be restored.
- Your spiritual growth will be much deeper that what you originally had.
- No longer passive of mind, you will master self control, a fruit of the spirit, along with a much greater sense of peace than you had experienced in the past.
- If you have had a false conversion, now you have overcome all demonic hindrances to being genuinely born again.

Consider Jonah and his disobedience and sudden flight from God to a ship filled with men about to be shipwrecked because of Jonah’s folly. So to find out why they suddenly entered into a severe storm, the men on board cast lots and the lot fell to Jonah. Once Jonah was revealed, he confessed. You would have thought that the men would have immediately picked up Jonah and thrown him off of the ship. Instead, they tried to row faster. Yet when all human effort failed, they reluctantly threw Jonah overboard and peace immediately prevailed for them.
Why didn’t Jonah just jump overboard himself? Perhaps it was not physically possible and he needed someone to lift him up and cast him into the sea. My suspicion is that as it is in most cases, the people who are bringing storms into our lives are “all about self,” especially when their needs are being met by us.
However what I have learned by experience, is that once the cause of an attack has been uncovered or revealed to me, my next step is to refuse. Sometimes you have to refuse a condition or persuasion that is within your personality or in other words, a refusal may have to be made to your flesh.
For example, if you are a person that must be liked or approved of by others, you will have to refuse your flesh in this regard. If you can answer an emphatic “yes,” to the following statements as conditions of your own flesh, refusal will eventually be in order, if you are going to effectively resist the devil:
• I try to avoid being alone
• I let other people decide what to do.
• I get upset when people don’t include me in their activities;
• I am stressed if I don’t include other people in my plans;
• I am easily led;
• I hate any form of confrontation;
• I can’t stand being left out of things;
• I am emotionally dependent upon people.
So one way to crucify your flesh is by refusing to act out its nature.
Besides refusing your former nature without Christ, there are times when you also have to refuse your former perception or understanding as it relates to spiritual and religious matters. In fact, refusal is one of the ways that we cast down our imaginations, and every thought that is contrary to our obedience to the inner leadings of the Holy Ghost.
For example, if you have assumed that God would not allow the enemy to deceive you under any circumstances, to resist the devil that is assigned to you, you will have to refuse every thought connected to this false assumption. I personally know from experience that I can be deceived by the enemy because I have been, several times in fact.
Here is a personal example. It has been revealed to me that in 1996, I founded a church based upon the nature of my flesh and the leading of the religious demon assigned to me. Certainly, I believed that I was led by God at the time. However, with the discernment and the enlightenment that I have received over time, I can look back now with such understanding. What was confusing and complicated in 1996 is obvious and simple today.
Once my eyes were fully opened in 2008, I had to exercise refusal by closing the church doors. Certainly I had to face opposition to closing it. In fact, for a year, services continued in a members home, until her eyes were also opened and the doors of the church were permanently shut, never to open again.
As soon as I took the first step of refusal as I resisted the devil, the next revelation followed. Since the enemy was the secret force that led me to start this church in the first place, it logically and spiritually follows that each and every person who played a significant role in its operations was sent by the enemy also. In 13 years, several people were involved. Out of all of them, I have contact with two persons from the former church.
I published a e-book entitled “Be Delivered From Deliverance Ministry”. If you have been in bondage to people pleasing with deliverance workers who caused your spiritual and physical condition to worsen, you need this book. If you have ever been in a deliverance session that lasted longer than 5 minutes, this book is for you. If you have read a lot of books on deliverance ministry, this book will un-ravel the confusion and de-mystify how to cast out demons.
If you have questions about deliverance call 1-888-818-1117.
