HEALING OF RELATIONSHIPS

DEMONIC INFLUENCES

Many of us have demonic influences within us, but we also have the dashing prince. Before the Prince can save the damsel in distress, he has to slay the dragons that surround the castle. These demons are our wounds, our fears from our egos. A good example is women who always seem to meet emotionally abusive men. The problem is that these women have always known that pain. They almost feel comfortable with that pain. Their demons must be bound and delivered away: the spirits of poor unforgiveness, self-esteem, trauma and fear.

Sometimes the moment the pain is greatest is a wonderful opportunity: we might actually make a slip and ask Heaven for help. You decide that you need to be healed. A process of miraculous change takes place which is twofold:

  1. I see my error or dysfunctional pattern
  2. I ask God to take it from me: “This is the confidence we have in approaching God: that if we ask anything according to his will, he hears us.”                                                                                                 1 John 5:14

The healing must happen. They then learn to pray for each other and for the healing of relationships: to reignite one’s love. What is required is deliverance.

What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don’t they come from your desires that battle within you?                                                  James 4:1

As victims of a sin-nature, we tend to be blind to our own sins and at the same time we are driven to blame our spouse or anyone else for own bad behavior.  As Christians, we are called to examine our own personal flaws and to respond to our spouse with understanding and compassion.

healing relationships deliverance

Unfortunately, many justify their action by telling ourselves, “I can’t help it!”, which is a myth or a lie.  Another reason for arguments is that we too easily give in to our own negative feelings.  Jesus called us to rise above our feelings, not to allow them to dominate our will and to continue loving no matter what.

Another flaw in our thinking is something called, “weather proofing” our relationship, which is an arrogant attempt to change one’s spouse into a perfect fantasy in one’s mind of what a spouse should be.  What a dangerous illusion!  One partner may foster conflict by thinking the other has an evil intent, which is usually not true. When one judges in this way, one is putting on a superiority: he or she is not good enough for me.  Remember only God has the right to judge.

This feeling that the spouse is deliberately out to wound the other, leads to insecurity, which in turn leads to low moods; these low moods cause the spouse to lose one’s warm feelings, which in itself is destructive. It is really a cry for help.

If one spouse is in a low mood, it is very difficult to use reason.  That spouse has lost touch with logic and has lost sight of reality. Conversely, as one’s spouse begins to feel more secure, one’s mood begins to rise and one will once more break out into the sunlight. Hope is the usual medicine.

When both are in a high mood again, and can think clearly, both should discuss what happened and try to practice a new strategy.  To avoid this pitfall, both must agree to inform the other when one is in a low mood before it explodes.  It must be agreed on how each should react to respond to a partner’s  low mood. 

We know that men and women think and act differently. We also know that two partners may come from totally different family backgrounds and experiences.  Despite these differences, it would be ideal if both partners begin to change. Even if only one makes the effort, there is usually a wonderful response by the other.

If one’s attitude is excitement at the spouse’s way of seeing the world, one will continue to be in a high mood, constantly stimulated by the partner’s ideas and never feeling threatened by them.

INCOMPATIBILITY

We should discard all false notions of “incompatibility”, which is a myth and an feeble excuse to avoid real commitment.  Christians can love one another whether they are compatible or not in the eyes of the world.

A perceived problem is in fact a state of mind, which can manufacture a problem out of anything or even out of nothing.  A change of heart  is necessary.  We have available to us even a higher spiritual change of heart, which prompts us to “lay down my life” for the other. John 10:15 This can only occur with the help of the Holy Spirit. It means that daily we submit ourselves to the will of God — accepting Jesus Christ as one’s personal Lord and Saviour and following in His footsteps and if necessary carrying  His cross.

This leads to true conversion: the husband begins to live for his wife instead of for himself, while his wife begins to live for him, rather than for herself.  If I “lay down my life” for my wife and live for her happiness, I need never worry, since it is very likely that she will do the same thing in turn for me.  The result is that my wife’s needs will be met and my needs will also be met. Instead of living a self-centred life, I live an other-centred life, and I am empowered to do this because I live for God first.

“Therefore if you have any encouragement from being united with Christ, if any comfort from his love, if any common sharing in the Spirit, if any tenderness and compassion, then make my joy complete by being like-minded, having the same love, being one in spirit and of one mind. Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.”                                                                                   Philippians 2:1-4

“Do everything without grumbling or arguing, so that you may become blameless and pure, ‘children of God without fault in a warped and crooked generation.’ Then you will shine among them like stars in the sky.”                                                              Philippians 2:14-15 

  • The first step usually begins with an ordinary counseling session to find out how the partners feel about themselves and their relationship.

Much of what holds people back in life is their unresolved feelings and judgments regarding their relationships, even relationships in the distant past. These feelings and judgments act as a kind of dam, holding people’s feelings back, arresting them in place, influencing their perception of other people and disabling them from being able to be emotionally open.

GAMBLING ADDICTION DELIVERANCE

HIGH STAKES OF GAMBLING ADDICTION

Psychologist Roger Barrett, Ph.D., of Canton, Ohio, says that negative feelings are like a cork that needs to be popped in order to begin letting out the good feelings. In time, anger becomes forgiveness; despair leads to declaration. In other words, gambling addiction is nothing more than a symptom that goes deeper.

GAMBLING ADDICTIONAddicted gamblers have lived with incredible emotional pain for years. Most come from troubled homes. “Easily 80 percent of our gamblers come from alcoholic or addicted homes where their parents were poor role models. Therefore, the child never learns control.

Gamblers Anonymous estimates that there are at least 10 million problem gamblers in the United States. By extrapolation, Canada suffers from 1.2 million problem gamblers.

There are huge costs to the family: financial losses in addition to profound wounds of the heart and soul. For example, 11 percent of wives of gamblers attempt suicide and 25 percent of children of compulsive gamblers have behavior and/or adjustment problems. Many go on to become addicted to gambling.

As time goes on, the gambler is no longer betting just in order to win, but instead to recover growing losses. Gamblers refer to this as “chasing,” the frantic pursuit of lost money. And in order to recoup, they take bigger and bigger chances leading to more and more losses.

The compulsion has already sent a deep wedge between the gambler and God. Now the addiction drives the gambler to do things he or she never would have considered before. These could include theft, embezzlement, prostitution, drug trafficking and other activities. Despair and depression increase, leading to confusion and panic that instigate poorly calculated bets, causing even more losses.

Some wind up in mental institutions or jails or living on the street. One out of every five players attempts suicide. Many gamblers, however, reach recovery.

POWER of the BLOOD of JESUS

 THE BLOOD OF JESUS CHRIST

 The Blood of Jesus Christ

A few drops of blood renew the whole world

The Blood of Jesus has always been an important concept to Christian people down through the centuries of Christian belief. The inspired Scriptures contain numerous references to the significance of the blood of Christ.

 The blood of Jesus is regarded by many as far more than merely an historical fact. It has become for them a present, living, potent reality. Blood is the life of the body. Christ’s body died, but His blood did not die.

For if the blood of bulls and goats and the ashes of a heifer, sprinkling the unclean, sanctifies for the purifying of the flesh, how much more shall the blood of Christ, who through the eternal Spirit offered Himself without spot to God, cleanse your conscience from dead works to serve the living God?                                    Hebrews 9:13-14

We enter into this new covenant with God by faith. By faith we receive the blood that Jesus shed as a holy sacrifice for our sins. The blood of Jesus makes us holy and worthy to receive God’s Holy Spirit in us. In this new covenant we agree to be led by God’s Holy Spirit. The proof of our faith is our obedience to God. Faith without works is dead faith. For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also. James 2:26 When we are not obeying the Holy Spirit we feel dead. 

 The Blood of Jesus Christ
The Blood of Jesus Christ

If you can receive this teaching of Jesus, and then put it into practice, your life will be dramatically changed. Spiritually feeding on Jesus body and drinking His blood will fill you with His very life, because the life is in the blood, Deuteronomy 2:23. Then Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, unless you eat the flesh of the Son of Man and drink His blood, you have no life in you. “Whoever eats My flesh and drinks My blood has eternal life, and I will raise him up at the last day. “For My flesh is food indeed, and My blood is drink indeed. “He who eats My flesh and drinks My blood abides in Me, and I in him. “As the living Father sent Me, and I live because of the Father, so he who feeds on Me will live because of Me.”  John 6:53-57 Food gives us nourishment, strength, and satisfaction. Jesus is our spiritual source of nourishment, strength, and satisfaction.

BLOOD OF JESUS

Applying the Blood of Jesus

Just as priests applied the blood in the old covenant, we as priests in the new covenant are to apply the blood of Jesus. This is the blood of the testament which God hath enjoined unto you. Hebrews 9:20  The word enjoined means to be given charge of. In the old covenant the priest applied the blood of animals by sprinkling. In the new covenant we receive the blood by faith and sprinkle the blood with our words. For with the heart one believes unto righteousness, and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. Romans 10:10

You apply the blood of Jesus to yourself when you say, “the blood of Jesus which He shed on the cross was for me, and it makes me free from sin and all unrighteousness.” Whatever we apply the blood to is made Holy. When the blood is applied so also is God’s grace and the anointing of the Holy Spirit applied.

Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, “Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death.”                                                                                                                                    Revelation 12:10-11    In the old covenant they applied the blood by sprinkling,              Hebrews 9:19. In the new covenant we apply the blood by our words.

 The Blood of Jesus Christ
The Blood of Jesus Christ

You can apply the blood of Jesus to your body to receive healing, Isaiah 53:5. You can apply the blood of Jesus to your mind, to receive a sound mind. You can apply the blood of Jesus to your home, Exodus 12:13. You can apply the blood of Jesus to your children, Job 1:5. You can apply the blood of Jesus to anyone and anything that you have authority over or influence upon. It is your right as God’s child. Also in obedience to God’s Holy Spirit you should apply the blood of Jesus to anything or anyone that He tells you to. It is your duty as a royal priest of the most High God. But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light;                                                                                   1 Peter 2:9   Continue reading POWER of the BLOOD of JESUS

INSOMNIA DELIVERANCE ASSURED

INSOMNIA

Too little sleep is no good for us, but so is too much sleep. Both situations lead to fatigue.

Individuals who were extremely obese had higher odds of reporting insomnia than those of normal weight. The prevalence of insomnia among seniors was largely attributable to poorer health, not age. 

One elderly lady had always problems with sleeping. She had been heavily involved in yoga when she was younger. There are some dangers with this practice if one delves into too deeply. We call this an ungodly superstitious belief.  A crack in a person’s spirit is opened to allow an influence from demonic attack. Deliverance is needed!  “…Oppressors seek after my soul: they have not set God before them.”                                                                                                            Psalm 54:3

Life stress also kept Canadians up at night, the study says. Nearly one-quarter (23 per cent) of people who described most of their days as being either “quite a bit” or “extremely” stressful reported insomnia.

In the mist of all David’s troubles he still honored and praised God as his protector, his shield, and strength: “But You, O LORD, are a shield about me, My glory, and the One who lifts my head.”                                                                                                                                             Psalm 3: 3

GETTING BETTER SLEEP

HERE ARE 12 TIPS FOR GETTING BETTER SLEEP:

The first step is to sleep at the same time every night in order to attune yourself to a rhythm If you accomplish this, you will feel like a new person after less than ten days.

  • Establish a regular bedtime and a relaxing bedtime routine—examples might include taking a warm bath or listening to soothing music.
  • Use your bed only for sleeping or lovemaking. Avoid reading and watching television in bed.
  • If you can’t fall asleep after 15 to 20 minutes, get out of bed and go into another room. Do something relaxing, such as reading quietly with a dim light. Don’t watch television or use a computer, since the light from their screens has an arousing effect. When you feel sleepy, get back into bed. Don’t delay your scheduled wake-up time to make up for lost sleep.
  • Get plenty of exercise. Build up to 45 minutes of moderate exercise nearly every day. Get your exercise early in the day. Try some easy stretching exercises or yoga to relax your muscles and your mind at bedtime.
  • Whenever possible, schedule stressful or demanding tasks early in the day and less challenging activities later. This helps you wind down at the end of your day.
  • Don’t go to bed hungry, but don’t eat a big meal right before getting into bed. If you want a bedtime snack, keep it bland and light.
  • Limit caffeine and consume none after 2 p.m.
  • To decrease middle-of-the-night urination, don’t drink any fluids after dinner.
  • Avoid alcohol after dinnertime. Although many people think of it as a sedative, it can get in the way of quality sleep.
  • Be sure your bed is comfortable and your bedroom is dark and quiet. Consider a sleep mask or earplugs.
  • Don’t take long naps during the day. If you need a nap, restrict it to 20 to 30 minutes in the early afternoon.

BRAIN HEALTH HELPS!

Your brain is the fattest organ in your body. The human brain is nearly 60 percent fat. We’ve learned in recent years that fatty acids are among the most crucial molecules that determine your brain’s integrity and ability to perform. Continue reading INSOMNIA DELIVERANCE ASSURED

DELIVERANCE FROM CONTROLLING SPIRITS ASSURED

CONTROLLING  SPIRITS & DELIVERANCE

CONTROLLING SPIRITS DELIVERANCE

One must break free from the Bondage of a Controlling Spirits. “…Oppressors seek after my soul: they have not set God before them.” Psalm 54:3  A person who has a controlling spirit, will try to control everyone around them, control their lives, decisions; and will in general do everything to have influence and power. They want to control their lives, and the lives of those around them, to get things their way. Deliverance may be required.

WHAT IS DELIVERANCE?

deliverance is

Deliverance is defined as “a rescue from bondage or danger.” Deliverance is often sought from evil spirits or the spirit of lust, jealousy, etc. We are told to “Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith.”                                                                                                                                                  1 Peter 5:8,9

All aspects of deliverance are available only through the person and work of Jesus Christ:” When the seventy-two disciples returned, they joyfully reported to him, ‘Lord, even the demons obey us when we use your name!’”                                                                              Luke 10:17

 DO YOU NEED DELIVERANCE?

To determine if you are in need of deliverance, ask yourself the following questions:

  1. Are you continually argumentative or contrary–usually on the verge of anger?
  2.  Are you violating, neglecting or causing pain in a relationship?
  3.  Are you practicing sin and can’t seem to stop?
  4. Do you see a pattern of issues in your family, whether disease, poverty, anger, divorce, sexual perversion or other issues?
  5. You are sick all the time and the doctors find nothing wrong. You could be dealing with a spirit of infirmity?
  6. Are you having “spiritual” encounters, including recurring  dreams/nightmares that you leave you fearful?
  7. Do you sometimes sense that the problem isn’t you, but rather something in you?
  8. Are you attracted  to the occult. , e.g. Ouija Boards, Seance, Fortune Telling, Horoscopes, Hypnosis etc, or Witchcraft?
  9. Have you experienced traumatic events that have impacted your life negatively?
  10.  Do you keep hitting the same wall.

Now, we need to realize that there is a difference between one with a take charge ability and one with a controlling spirit. They are not the same thing. Many godly people are qualified people who know how to motivate others to work, and how to get things done. Those lead and control situations and needs in a godly manner.

Conversely, an oppressive controlling spirit wants power, and they will get it any way the can in order to advance their cause. They enjoy controlling others.  They have a Jekyll and Hyde nature: vindictive in private, but innocent and charming in front of witnesses. This Hyde side is frequently described as “evil”.  These angry people are clearly selfish. They also appear compassionate and well-meaning.

deliverance evil spirits

Like most emotional problems, there is a wide range of controlling “Hyde” personalities, but generally the Hyde side exhibits the following characteristics:

  • a control freak and has a compulsive need to control everyone and everything you say, do, think and believe; and aggressively maintains the right to talk about anything they choose.
  • unable to trust others – this partly explains the compulsion for excessive monitoring.
  • quick to blame others.
  • often misses social cues.
  • appears to invite suggestions, yet these sociopaths inwardly dismiss each idea without considering its merits.
  • financially irresponsible.
  • insecure and sees others as a threat; the threat seems to comprise a fear of exposure of inadequacy.
  • has no listening skills, ignores and overrules you.
  • has an inability to form stable relationships.
  • does not learn from experience.
  • holds deep prejudice (e.g. against other cultures and religious beliefs, foreigners, etc) but goes to great lengths to keep this aspect of their personality secret.
  • often has an overwhelming, unhealthy and narcissistic attention-seeking need to portray themselves as a wonderful, kind, caring and compassionate person.

DELIVERANCE FROM LUST AND PORNOGRAPHY

GODDESS OF SEX

America worships the goddess of sex, which is behind the pornography that pervades almost every aspect of modern life.

Modern America is one of the most idolatrous countries the world has ever seen. This is reflected by the sheer volume of pornography available even to the very young. 

Television might be labeled an idol. It is like an altar, which we spread offerings to the great god of Self. It panders to our lust for comfort and entertainment. It encourages us to focus on ourselves.

JESUS WISHES TO SPEAK TO YOU

PORNOGRAPHY LUST

Return to the Virtue of Purity.

“I love you.

What has happened to the virtue of purity? I stressed this virtue when I was on earth and St. Paul in his letters wrote much about it. This virtue is the answer to all promiscuity, sexual license and living together without Christian marriage.

Impurity is the cause of much grief and suffering today. So many sicknesses are transmitted because of sexual license, many children grow up without both parents and relationships are so easily terminated.

You must avoid the trap that the evil one and his followers have set up to catch you. They want you to look for pleasure in the world. They are pushing drugs, alcohol, sexual pleasure, pornography and sexual films. They hope by these you will forget about Me and you will not worry about sin.

Do not look upon things that will make you fall into sin such as pornography, sexual shows, or all kinds of prohibited lovemaking. 

Without the virtue of purity, prayer is difficult if not impossible. The problem begins already among the youth who are not disciplined but follow only their instincts. Contraceptives have encouraged such a life-style that leads only to broken hearts and loneliness. Continue reading DELIVERANCE FROM LUST AND PORNOGRAPHY

BORN AGAIN FOR DUMMIES

BORN AGAIN

“You are born again by the Spirit of God. ”                            John 3: 3-6   

“The instant that I was born again, I felt wonderful. It was just like a two-ton weight had rolled off my chest. I was rejoicing and I felt happy spiritually.”              I BELIEVE IN VISIONS by Kenneth Hagin

BORN AGAIN
BORN AGAIN

There’s Got to be More to Christianity!

 “’Consider carefully what you hear,’ He continued. ‘With the measure  you use, it will be measured to you—and even more.‘”           Mark 4:24

God gives us the oil of holiness. We become like new wine skins , not by your own strength. This means there is no self-effort. But it also means there is no more agenda. Once you give God everything that you have, you die to yourself. The old wine skin has to go.

There may be a period when your faith is trained and tested. God only wants to get your attention.

We must keep going and seek Him. God said that you should seek and you will find.  This is an authoritative statement with only one proviso: it must be done on God’s timing. He didn’t say seek him until you find Him. With holiness, you will see Him.

“Now he who supplies seed to the sower and bread for food will also supply and increase your store of seed and will enlarge the harvest of your righteousness.”                                        2 Corinthians 9: 10

So if you believe a little, you will get a little, but if you believe a lot, you will get a lot. Once you soak yourself in the spirit of holiness, you will receive perfect love, which was given at Pentecost.

When you receive Jesus as our personal Saviour by faith, His life enters your spirit. You are now what Scripture calls born again. John 3:1-9. You have Christ’s brand new life inside you. His purity, love, peace, truth, and blessings are now inside your spirit. You are beautiful and perfect within.

As a child of your Heavenly Father, you are invited to communicate with Him through prayer. Prayer is easy — you simply share your heart with Him. He loves to answer our desires. Prayer is very fulfilling and powerful.

BORN AGAIN

You will also want to meet some other Christians who understand the love of God. Fellowship can be great fun. Visit some of the churches in your areas. Christ’s Holy Spirit dwells within you, and He will direct you to a good fellowship if you ask Him to.

Just like a newborn baby needs nourishment and care, so do new babies in the Lord. The Bible is full of truth that is like fresh milk and food for you . As you read it each day, it will nourish you and reveal wonderful things about God’s love and His ways. Here are the gift, which you will discover by reading the Word of God, which:

Frames the will of God                                                                     Hebrews 11:3

Brings light into darkness                                                         Psalm 119:130

Is a lamp unto your feet and a light unto your path  Psalm 119:105

Secures blessings                                                                              Ephesians 1:3

Creates                                                                                                     Romans 4:17

Ensures answers to prayer                                                                John 15:7

Dispatches angels                                                                           Psalm 103:20

All of God’s goodness belongs to you when you are in Christ; so enjoy!

Who are You in Christ?

The Lord loves you with an everlasting love and has promised to give you a future and a hope. With loving kindness, He has drawn you to Himself.  It is through this love that He has called you to be His dear child.

God’s love toward you is patient and kind. His love will never fail. His love for you is so rich that He gave His only begotten Son. You now have an unbreakable, eternal covenant with Him:

  • You are born again by the Spirit of God.                             John 3: 3-6
  • You are a child of God; God is spiritually your Father.                                                                                                                                      Romans 8: 14,15
  • You are God’s workmanship , created in Christ for good works.                                                                                                                    Ephesians 2: 10
  • You are a member of Christ’s body.                        1 Corinthians 3:16
  • You are a friend of Christ.                                                            John 15: 15
  • You are chosen and ordained by Christ to bear fruit.  John 15: 16
  • You are the salt of the earth.                                                 Matthew 5:13
  • You are the light of the world.                                           Matthew 5: 14
  • You are a recipient of every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ.                                                                             Ephesians 1:3
  • You are a new creation in Christ; old things have passed away and all things have become new.                                          Corinthians 5: 17

The Lord is the strength of your life.

Nothing can separate you from the love of God which is in Christ Jesus, your Lord. You are not under any guilt or condemnation.  Romans 8:1  Refuse discouragement because it is not of God.  God is a God of encouragement.  You flee from temptation in Christ. James 4:7 But if you do sin, you have an advocate with the Father, 1 John 2:2 who is Jesus Christ. Confess your sins and forsake them. God is just to forgive and cleanse you.

Because Christ has set you free, you are free indeed.        Romans 8:2  You have been delivered out of the domain of darkness and you now abide in the Kingdom of God. God has not given you a spirit of fear but of love, of power, and of a sound mind.                         2 Timothy 1:7

He will make your path straight.

Because Christ dwells within you, you know wisdom and instruction. When you lack wisdom, ask in faith and it is given to you generously. James 1:5 Jesus will make His words of wisdom known to you. Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not lean on your own understanding. In all of your ways, acknowledge Him, and He will make your path straight.                                                                 Proverbs 3: 5,6

God knows what you need even before you ask.

VISIONS OF HELL

 HELL  REVEALED

Vassula hears, interiorly

She hears a voice first, then, when she has to write down what she has heard, her writing changes. This describes her visit:

heaven true life in God

I entered the tunnel and was engulfed within a violently spinning vortex heading toward a yellowish dint of light. I stood up and looked around. I saw a house on a hill, smelled horrible odors, and heard strange sounds. People came from the house and neared me with joyous shouts of welcome. Where was I? Heaven? Hell? At first, I thought I was in a paradise but the sounds and smells were all wrong.

hell purgatory

Something was not right about these people either. For some reason they began appearing translucent. With this, I began to see them for what they really were – strange foul creatures emitting the illusions of people. Upon seeing this, two words erupted from my mouth like the staccato of a machine gun: Jesus Christ. I said these two words non-stop till I left this place. I was in a state of stark terror as the reality of where I was hit home.

One creature began to speak to me in a heavy unknown accent and told me to follow it:  I followed the rank creature and immediately emerged on the other side of the horizon. A wide, dirty, flat, barren expanse of land gently sloped downward, betraying an endless circular spiral of misery. On the left side of the coiled grade were rows and rows of cubes with more cubes columned high, forming a wall of ten-by-ten foot partitions mirroring the events displayed inside.

Each cube was stacked six high, marring each ascending and descending spiraling level’s wall like a dirty mirror. The wide expanse was a road. Strange entities were traveling on it. This wide dusty road ended at a circular void, highlighting the center of this hellish domain.

HELL REALITY

The cubes appeared encompassed by thin smoke-tinted, gelatin-like walls. Each cube appeared to be about ten feet by ten feet square. You could see into these but not out of them. Within every chamber resided an individual person, trapped, unable to escape as I had.

Looking through the torn wall of the cube I had just stepped out of, the house and tree within were hauntingly calling my name to return. Perplexed, I stepped back for another glance at this cubicle. I was surprised that it was so small. Inside it had seemed so large!

Turning, I saw the lizard-like entity a few feet from me, reaching its ugly, greenish-yellow arms as if to drag me away to a desperate fate. Boxer style, I blocked the attempt. This fiend stepped back, grinning ear to ear.

What I saw is best described in the Holy Bible in Ezekiel describes hell or purgatory as a circular burial pit where the dead are buried within the walls of a pit in accordance to his or her deeds. Each individual is placed in a chamber described symbolically as a bed chamber where the resident restlessly rest experiencing recompense for his or her deeds performed on earth.

 “Elam is there and all her hordes around her grave; all of them slain, fallen by the sword, who went down uncircumcised to the lower parts of the earth, who instilled their terror in the land of the living and bore their disgrace with those who went down to the pit.  They have made a bed for her among the slain with all her hordes. Her graves are around it.”                                                    Ezekiel 32: 24,25

Inside each cube, I spied individual people in various stages of boredom, anguishes, and hideous various torments. Ghoulish entities were inside these cubes giving the illusions of people, places, and things to each trapped soul enacting the scenes from each person’s life. I also traveled between these cubes to more cubes that lay behind as the journey continued.

The creature before me began speaking to me again with such foul language and curses that I cannot record what it really said for you. I began understanding its speech and could sort out the general theme it was speaking from its cursing. It then began showing me around this domain.

Out from the cubicle wall’s was a large dusty plain or road. Both ugly and beautiful beings roamed in lose packs on this plain. During the duration of my stay, many of these entities attempted to engage me in conversation. I was too terrified to respond but only spoke out the words, “Jesus Christ” non-stop.

I was taken on a hellish tour of this place by the ghastly creature in front of me. We descended to the lower levels of the spiral road as well as observed what was happening inside the cubes to each lost soul we passed. This hellish journey seemed to last forever. I wanted to wake up so bad, but could not.

Each trapped soul reaped in full measure whatever they had sown during their lives. Many entered this pit and into the cubes by means of spinning vortexes. I also noticed another entrance. All those people trapped resided totally alone and were not aware of each other. The only thing each was aware of, were the creatures residing with them and the scenes enacted within their own personal square nightmarish abode. It was truly a place of doom, despair, and unending nightmares.

I would say that each person trapped there felt a peculiar separation from God in the form of feeling banished forever from the loving nature of God and true life. Each knew fully that they deserved his or her fate because each chose to walk away from God and now resided in place without God as they desired during his or hers life lived on earth. God, in his great justice, fairness, and unfathomable love gave them what they desired: a place without God and where each was receiving the fruits of his or her own doings.

I felt greatest fear when the beastly guide tried to entrap me inside a unique cubicle. It is here, I was rescued while screaming out the words, Jesus Christ. I felt someone coming for me and arrive behind me and then lift me up.

I wept as the Redeemer carried me back to the cube I arrived in and then through the vortex back to the rock. He set my feet upon that Huge Rock where I was granted a glimpse of Heaven and was told that none can enter Heaven unless they come through the gate which was the robe clad Personage standing before me.

I was told it was time to leave and return. I floated back the way I had come. I was soon in my room above my body looking at the scene below. I glided back into my body and awoke with a start. I could not regain my breath until someone began hitting me on my back. I was rushed to a Hospital for further treatment and recovery. The duration of my near-death experience (NDE), was about four hours.

My experience has left me a deep appreciation for the work of Jesus Christ and His salvation. I became a Born Again Christian because of it. I have renewed understanding of God’s profound love, justice, righteousness, grace, and mercy. I learned that Jesus came to save that which is lost.

HELL IS A SECOND DEATH.

HEALING NEEDS DELIVERANCE

 HEALING AND DELIVERANCE

There is a relationship between healing and the need for deliverance. Many are never healed because they have never received deliverance from the spirits that made them sick.

WHAT IS DELIVERANCE?

deliverance is

Deliverance is defined as a rescue from bondage or danger. We are told to “Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith.”                                                   1 Peter 5:8,9

All aspects of deliverance are available only through the person and work of Jesus Christ:” When the seventy-two disciples returned, they joyfully reported to him, ‘Lord, even the demons obey us when we use your name!’”                                                                              Luke 10:17

 DO YOU NEED DELIVERANCE?

To determine if you are in need of deliverance, ask yourself the following questions:

  1. Are you continually argumentative or contrary–usually on the verge of anger?
  2.  Are you violating, neglecting or causing pain in a relationship?
  3.  Are you practicing sin and can’t seem to stop?
  4. Do you see a pattern of issues in your family, whether disease, poverty, anger, divorce, sexual perversion or other issues?
  5. You are sick all the time and the doctors find nothing wrong. You could be dealing with a spirit of infirmity?
  6. Are you having “spiritual” encounters, including recurring  dreams or nightmares that you leave you fearful?
  7. Do you sometimes sense that the problem isn’t you, but rather something in you?
  8. Are you attracted  to the occult. , e.g. Ouija Boards, Seance, Fortune Telling, Horoscopes, Hypnosis etc, or Witchcraft?
  9. Have you experienced traumatic events that have impacted your life negatively?
  10.  Do you keep hitting the same wall or the same problems.

Is it imaginable that a man, who had been with Jesus as His disciple, should betray Him to the high priest and have Him arrested and tortured and killed. This disciple was Judas Iscariot.

He arranged everything to have Jesus arrested. He should have known that as God, Jesus knew everything that he was doing. This is why at the Last Supper, before Jesus consecrated the bread and wine, He announced that there was one present who would betray Him. None of the other Apostles knew about this but of course Judas knew because he had already started planning all this.

Judas is an example of a person who is possessed by the devil who leads him to betray his Saviour and Lord. In fact he had been a betrayer from the beginning because he used to steal money from the moneybag. 

Healing DeliveranceDeliverance

How many of the following characteristics describe your life?

  • Insecurity? Yet God has not given you a spirit of fear, but of power, love and a sound mind?                                                    Timothy 1:7
  • Inadequacy? Why should I fell like a failure when I am a conqueror in all things through Christ?                              Romans 8:37          
  • Guilt? Why should I feel condemned when I am in Christ?                                                                                                                                    Romans 8:1
  • Worry? Yet why should I worry and fret when I can cast all my anxiety on Christ who cares for me?                                       1 Peter 5:7
  • Doubt? Why should I be confused when God is the author of peace and He gives me knowledge through His indwelling Spirit?                                                                                        1 Corinthians 14:33; 2:12
  • Inferiority? Why should I feel worthless when Christ became sin on my behalf, so that I might become the righteousness of God in Him?                                                                                          2 Corinthians 5:21

Perhaps the greatest service performed by trials and tribulations in our lives is to reveal wrong goals:                                                                               Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. 4 Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. James 1:2-4   God’s goal for you is to mature in Christ.

When you align your goals and desires with God’s desires, you will rid your life from a lot of anger, anxiety and depression.

Anxiety signals an uncertain goal, which you have chosen. Depression signals an impossible goal. Anger signals a blocked goal.  We sometimes try to control others, believing that our own self-worth is dependent on other people. In contrast, a godly goal reflects God’s purpose for your life, which does not depend on any people or circumstance. 

Emotions can be like a red light on the dashboard of your car indicating engine problems. To fix the problem, one should not bottle up your feelings too long, because it disrupts the harmony between you and God.

It is equally unwise to lash out and “honestly tell someone off” at the sacrifice of love. Jesus turned over the tables, not the money-changers. The wisest approach is to confide with at least one person with whom you can be emotionally honest.

In reality, we have very little control over our emotions, but we do have control over our thoughts. That is why it is so important to fill our minds with the Word of God, the Bible.

We need to see God’s perspective and respond accordingly. Add to this prayer: it is not a formula; it’s the language of your relationship with God: simply say “Lord, I love You; I believe in You; I trust You”.
