All of us are involved in a spiritual war in time and space, a war that is constantly waging around us. Every nation on the planet, every people group, every … Read More
There is very little on this subject anywhere in the world. But, as we continue to minister to people who have dissociation it is important we better understand all the elements of dissociation.
Believers are discovering when assisting individuals with dissociation that in some severe cases there are ancestral (or generational) dissociation. This is something we have come across in some cases. Essentially, it is the reality of the soul fragmenting in an ancestor and the broken part being transmitted, spiritually, in a generational manner.
We know sin and curses can be transmitted to future generations so we shouldn’t be surprised that broken parts of the mind can be transmitted by demonic powers…
“The Lord is slow to anger, abounding in love and forgiving sin and rebellion. Yet he does not leave the guilty unpunished; he punishes the children for the sin of their fathers to the third and fourth generation” (see Numbers 14).
Dr. Manbir Singh rightly explains that as many,
“…hereditary diseases are passed on within families from one generation to the next. Just as children may inherit normal features such as brown eyes or curly hair from one or both parents, children can also inherit certain disorders.”
He goes on…
“Whether or not a specific trait or disorder is inherited is determined by hereditary material called “genes.” Genes are the units of hereditary material. They contain coded instructions which direct the development of every cell and tissue in the human body. You might think of genes as blueprints, specifying how the body will develop and function.”
Just as traits can be transmitted through the hereditary material called genes, pieces of a ancestor’s broken soul (the mind and emotions specifically) can be transmitted through the family bloodline. To better grasp this spiritual reality one needs to take a look at the doctrine of man.
Allow me to preface in saying that the doctrine of man that the Church Councils & the Church Fathers, through the centuries dealt with, did not cover or grapple with the issues of dissociation, as they were without the knowledge of dissociation (the fact that the heart can be broken), though the ability / capability to dissociate has been around since Adam. It’s just the Body of Christ didn’t realize this could occur until the medical community came across this reality last century (though some believers may have understood earlier).
The Body of Christ is still being enlightened by the Holy Spirit on this subject. The metaphysical, spiritual, mystical (in the supernatural sense) elements are still being explored and understood.
Understanding the Composition of Humanity
Believers worldwide agree on some essentials, in regards to the composition of man.
- Man is created by God.
- Man is a sinner in need of a Savior.
- Man is made up of the material and immaterial.
- Man will experience a resurrection.
There are some non-essentials that believers differ on. For example, is humanity dichotomous or trichotomous. I, personally, believe man, is trichotomous.
1Thess. 5:23-24 states,
“May God himself, the God of peace, sanctify you through and through. May your whole spirit, soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. The one who calls you is faithful and he will do it.”
Hebrews 4:13 states,
“For the word of God is living and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart,”
Man has a spirit, soul, and body.
Another issue that the Body of Christ differs on is the subject of the fragmentation of the soul nature.
I believe the soul, however, can fragment (which the Bible clearly points out when referring to the heart being broken) and as such can be transmitted, spiritually, generationally (which is the topic of this discussion).
The spirit is spiritual (John 3:6, 1 Corinthians 5:5). The spirit will enter eternity upon death, of those who know Christ as Savior. However, the soul, remember can be broken (and as such demons can take advantage of the brokenness and transmit the parts) to future generations (like they do with curses and diseases if the person has not experienced the healing power of Jesus). The spirit though is indwelt with the Holy Spirit and as such cannot be touched by Satan or demons.
Transmitting Broken Parts
Satan can do all kinds of things to the body (and parts of the soul) to believers even after death. Jude tells us that even the “body of Moses” was a subject of dispute as Michael, the angel, and the devil was disputing over the body of this dear believer. Broken parts of the soul can also be disputed if a spiritual right has been given to a part of the soul (not the spirit however when speaking of a born again believer). Demons can assist with the transmission of parts to future generations.
Ministering to those with Ancestral Dissociation
Many victims of generational dissociation will speak of possessing an ancient memory that has nothing to do with their life and experience. This ancient memory is within the mind (the soul). This memory has been passed down through the generations (and with the memory is an ancient broken part from an ancient ancestor).
Speak to the memory in the name of Jesus. Often times a broken part carrying the ancient memory will speak (as dissociative identities will often do). Communicate to the part and ask the part to give the hurt/pain of the memory (as it usually involves trauma and pain) to Jesus Christ. Then ask the ancient part to go to Jesus. As the ancient part is a part of someone from a prior generation and as such one should not allow the part to become one with them.
Often times, an evil spirit will be present with the ancient part and the demon(s) will need to expelled in the name of Christ (ensure you find out what right it was holding onto–the generational spiritual right).
The Resurrection will be Wholeness
Be mindful that at the resurrection, the natural (the body and soul) will be restored by the triune God. So all ancient parts of believers will be whole at the resurrection. We will receive our bodies at the rapture.
1 Corinthians 15 speaks on this:
I declare to you, brothers, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of God, nor does the perishable inherit the imperishable. Listen, I tell you a mystery: We will not all sleep, but we will all be changed— in a flash, in the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet. For the trumpet will sound, the dead will be raised imperishable, and we will be changed. For the perishable must clothe itself with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality. When the perishable has been clothed with the imperishable, and the mortal with immortality, then the saying that is written will come true: “Death has been swallowed up in victory.”
The change will be complete, the wholeness will be final –the change includes the body and soul.
In this discussion I am going to refrain from detailing how evil workers systematically insert or program, within the soul nature of the unsuspecting, various control mechanisms. I will, though, speak in broad terms on how mind controlling spirits enter and work within their victims.
A year or so ago, my wife and I were counseling a lady that had been horrifically abused by some family members when she was just a little girl which allowed all kinds of demons to enter her and torment her including a mind controlling spirit.
“How are you operating within her mind,” I commanded the mind control spirit to reveal.
“We are still using the words of her grandfather, that abused her, to control her mind, to keep her in silence,” the demon revealed.
“What were the words of the grandfather,” I inquired.
“The words, ‘Don’t tell anyone,’” mind control revealed.
It may sound simplistic but a demonic force could use a word of a abuser for years to control a person’s mind. This is often seen in those who were belittled, rejected, hurt by cruel words, and cursed by a mother or father. These words carry demonic spiritual weight that can bind minds and emotions for years.
Several years ago in the Northwestern part of America we dealt with a lady who was previously involved with a man who was a member of a special force within the IDF (Israeli Defense Force) and who was involved in interrogations. Unknowingly this lady was spiritually seduced by this man and several mind controlling spirits that were within him, as a result of his special intelligence training, entered her (she wasn’t involved with him in any sexual manner but did exchanged many hugs which allowed the transference of these spirits to her). These spirits got her to believe that she should not communicate with her family and that she been disowned by her family. There were certain words programmed within her by these mind controlling spirits that would caused certain emotional responses to occur when these words were spoken or read or heard by her.
One word was, “family,” which caused her to go into a altered state of consciousness when this word was heard or read. The word produced strong emotional forces like deep despair to take place within her. One night while we were all having dinner I mistakenly used the word “family” in a conversation and she immediately entered a altered state of consciousness and didn’t eat for days (nor change her clothes as a result of the word being spoken). We discovered there were many other words that were programmed within her to bring forth certain responses. This is satanic mind controlling bondage!
Various Degrees of Soul Slavery
There are countless religions, sects, drug cartels, ideologies, cults, and criminal syndicates that utilize mind control mechanisms, too numerous to delve in to. In the Western World the focus is, incorrectly, on simply occult programming and mind control, but it’s much more broad then merely the occult. There are drug cartels using mind control as well as the Islamic Immans in the Muslim Mosques to prostitution rings. Sometimes there are utilizing occult methods, other times there are using Eastern Alternative Religious techniques. Irregardless, it’s all satanic at it’s core. From our observations and experience in the area of deprogramming, exorcism, and inner healing, we have discovered there are various degrees to soul slavery some in milder forms then others, though all should be treated with the utmost care and compassion in Jesus holy name as the pain is still pain despite what kind of degree it falls in. We’ll take a peek at some of the degrees of mind control.
As I mentioned earlier I was subjected to all kinds and degrees of demonic torment as a child as a result of my father’s involvement in secret societies. One element of mind control I had to fend off was the words my father who consistently told the family, “Freemasonry is a benevolent group that seeks the betterment of society,” and those kinds of reassuring (they were to be found to be false reassuring words though) but misleading statements that held our minds captive to ensure we continued to support his rise to very lofty levels within Freemasonry including becoming a “Most Worshipful Master” and obtaining the “Gold Card.” Moreover, it even caused our thinking to be sorta curious about the group’s ceremonies (which I attended, I even have a smiling picture, after my father was initiated to a high position within the Blue Lodge, that had us posing underneath a huge pentagram). The spoken words carried spiritual demonic weight that allowed for certain levels of mind control to occur.
A deeper form of mind control that is often utilized is those immersed in drug and prostitution rings. Recently, we encountered a lady that had sought our help, that came from a background of the Illuminati. Her father and grandfather was deeply immersed in Freemasonry and some other groups. These groups were also operating a prostitution ring within the lodges. The grandfather programmed this young lady at a early age by using various forms of torture and pain to caused dissociative identities to surface and the various parts were given the responsibility to ensure there was complete compliance when it came time to be sold as a sex slave. these dissociative identities were then programmed to respond to the grandfather when certain words were spoken, the word would be spoken and a programmed part would surface to comply with the desires of the lodge. For example, the lodge when there was a “customer”, would call Linda up and on the phone say, “Hi Linda, how are you. PINK!” As a result of that programmed word, “pink,” a personality would surface that would bear some highly sexual emotions and would then use the part for the prostitution. Sadly, Linda had no idea any of this went on (she would often wonder why she was losing time at night so often, she sorta brushed it off as being highly stressed as a result of the work she was in as a IT analyst).
Determining if Programming is Involved or Mind Control
Often I am asked how do you determine if there is an element of mind control at work. There are times when the individual already knows due to their involvement in the occult, drugs, and false religious practice. But what about those who are unsure, I would encourage the following.
- Submit to the Lordship of Jesus Christ. The salvation experience alone can bring about enough light to determine what you are dealing with spiritually.
- Seek the Baptism of the Holy Spirit. The mere presence of the fire of the Living Spirit of God will provoke a demonic response if there are demonic control elements involved.
- Seek out an exorcism, someone who understands dissociation and demonic issues. As often times, a mere email or phone conversation will not determine if there are deeper mind controlling issues are present.
- Live a life of personal holiness by the power of Jesus. Demons and control mechanisms abhor holiness at all levels. Partake of the Holy Communion, read the Sacred Scriptures often (Read Romans 12:1-2), praise the living Jesus, be willing to die for Christ, these are important elements that can bring about light that will push back and remove the darkness.
Confronting Mind Control
We have encountered thousands of evil spirits of mind control and have encountered various kinds of programming (ranging from governmental military programming to Jewel programming to Illuminati control to Hindu programming) that can be found in the world of the cults, the occult, false religions, drug cartels, pornographic rings, and so forth. Though the dynamics of the programming may vary from group to group, nevertheless, the solution remains the same–the Lord Jesus Christ! It is Jesus who is able to set the captives free irregardless of the degree of the mind control. Applying God’s Truth in all of your life will dismantle much of the mind control that might remain. However, there are certain demons that contain control mechanisms and powers that need to be removed as they might be deeply entrenched within your body or soul nature. There are dissociative identities and human interjects that might also be involved that need to be investigated. Just know the loving Jesus, God in the flesh, is able. He is more then able to rescue you and to dismantle the mind control.
A sign of the last days to look for is the commonality of mind control in a society and in the world. In 2 Timothy 3 the apostle Paul warns,
“But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— having a form of godliness but denying its power. Have nothing to do with them. They are the kind who worm their way into homes and gain control over weak-willed women, who are loaded down with sins and are swayed by all kinds of evil desires.”
Evil people seek to control others and in the last days there will be an abundance of people who are the kind that seek to “gain control” over weak willed individuals.
The spiritual elements within the subject of mind control needs to exposed as we are taught in Sacred Scripture to “expose the unfruitful deeds of darkness,” and it is my hope to expose and to see those under mind control which only leads to spiritual slavery to find release in Jesus name. I was rescued by the Lord Jesus Christ from the controls of the Illuminati. I understand the dynamics at work, sometimes subtle, sometime blatant. I was raised in a family where there were various degrees of soul slavery as I lived in a home where Freemasonry was practiced and encouraged. My father had reached the very highest levels within Freemasonry. Moreover, he was involved in a number of other secret societies. He also escaped these dark powers by the power of Jesus. So I lived it, understand it, and have assisted thousands in finding liberation from soul slavery.
Allow me to preface by saying that this subject is exhaustive and broad and I will barely scratch the surface but there is a tremendous need to write something on the subject of mind control, cult programming, and such. I have recently been asked to write on this topic by a number of people from around the globe and hope this basic guide to spiritual dynamics assists those needing information and spiritual intervention on this subject. Again, this isn’t intended to delve deep into this subject but rather expose the Body of Christ to the realities of mind control and the solutions found in God’s Word.
I would encourage anyone who is sensitive to this subject to be prudent when reading the below information as it could trigger a negative spiritual response. If you have any questions please feel free to email me.
May God bless this information herein to bring the light of Jesus to this very dark topic.
Understanding Soul Slavery
Also referred to as mind control, thought reform, brainwashing, mind seduction and by other various terms, soul slavery has been around as long as man has been on the planet. All of these terms describe the process by which a individual’s mind has been persuaded by a number of methods in an attempt to control the mind, hence, the term slavery. In Genesis 3 we see Satan attacking the soul nature (the mind, emotions and will) of Eve by attempting to get her to question, in her mind, the absolutes that she was aware of.
“Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the LORD God had made. He said to the woman, “Did God really say, ‘You must not eat from any tree in the garden’?”
The devil attacked Eve’s mind by persuading her to question what was true. A devilish deception. This was done obviously to control her, to distort her mind, to place her mind under spiritual slavery. Satan wanted to control her mind to get her to do what he desired. Classic example of mind control at it’s basic form.
Only the intervention of a loving God can one be brought into the light as see in Genesis 3:13,
“Then the LORD God said to the woman, “What is this you have done?” The woman said, “The serpent deceived me, and I ate.”
After the first humans were led astray by the serpent, God intervened and brought light and Eve understood fully for she acknowledged in verse 13, “the serpent deceived me.”
Satan attacked the first humans, deceived them, and was able to control them, to ensure they did what he wanted them to do, hence the term soul slavery. Throughout the thousands of years since this event Satan and his demonic spirits have sought to utilize evil workers to control the masses. But why?
The Why and How of Soul Slavery?
Because Satan hates God. Jesus frees people, Satan holds people captive. Satan does the exact opposite of what God does, because of Satan’s very nature is one of hatred. Satan hates humans and desires to place them in slavery on various levels.
Spiritual Blindness which we see in 2 Corinthians 4,
“And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing. The god of this age has blinded the minds of unbelievers, so that they cannot see the light of the gospel of the glory of Christ, who is the image of God.”
Satan, is referred to as the “god of this age” and he has the capability to “blind” the “minds” of unbelievers. This passage is a classic example of mind control. Billions in our world are held captive by mind control via the false religions such as Hinduism, Islam, Buddhism, Taoism, animism and other alternative religious sects. Satan keeps humans under mind control by blinding them, spiritually, to the gospel message.
False Teaching which we see in Galatians 3,
“You foolish Galatians! Who has bewitched you? Before your very eyes Jesus Christ was clearly portrayed as crucified. I would like to learn just one thing from you: Did you receive the Spirit by observing the law, or by believing what you heard? Are you so foolish? After beginning with the Spirit, are you now trying to attain your goal by human effort?”
This passage refers to a form of mind control via false teaching. In this case it was the false teaching that the observance of law could bring about righteousness. False teachings inherently possess a spiritual breath of demons that can keep one spellbound.
Powerful Emotions which we see in Proverbs 29,
” A fool gives full vent to his anger, but a wise man keeps himself under control.”
Being self-controlled, being sober minded, being serious minded is good traits and fruits of being Holy Spirit controlled. The polar opposite is one who allows their emotions to control their behavior. There are individuals who seek to instill certain emotions within people to obtain a form of control over them; for they understand that allowing unholy emotions like bitterness, revenge, rage to go unchecked can lead to the possibility of being controlled by these emotions and the possibility of others controlling them.
The World System including our schools, hospitals, financial institutions, governments, religious organizations, civic groups, music and movie industry, and literature is largely controlled by the enemy and the enemy utilizes these avenues by which to control nations and their citizens. The apostle John puts it this way, in 1 John 5,
“We know that we are children of God, and that the whole world is under the control of the evil one.”
The enemy is able to control the minds of billions via the world system.
Drugs and sorcery are inseparable, as we see in Scripture, and we know that drugs are a spiritual gateway for altered states of consciousness that can be utilized for mind control purposes.
Involvement in any trafficking which can include drug trafficking, human trafficking, prostitution, pornographic trafficking, etc
Unholy vows, oaths, spoken words, spells, blasphemy, and curses.
Traumatic events can bring about dissociation which often results in fragmented parts being quite vulnerable and open to attack to mind controlling spirits.
Generational curse of mind control. Prior ancestors can open doorways that can bring forth enslaving spirits.
Governmental Elitism utilize mind control during times of extreme national crises. For example, the Nazi Movement of the 1930′s and 1940′s in Europe that directly affected numerous nations of the world.
Participation in the Dark Arts which would include various forms of occultism, witchcraft, voodoo, sorcery, spiritism, satanism, and other diabolical religious groups. All of these groups delve into spiritual realms, DIRECTLY, that are forbidden that open minds to demonic control.
Many are inquiring, who have dissociation, how to test, spiritually, to determine if a part is truly a part (and not an evil spirit).
Holy Scripture gives us some spiritual tests that could be utilized in determining if you are dealing with a demon or a broken part of yourself. These spiritual tests work as we have used them on many thousands throughout the globe.
The first test is found in 1 John 3:
“We know that we have passed from death to life, because we love our brothers. Anyone who does not love remains in death.”
If you are involved in a deliverance session and you’re having great difficulty determining if you’re dealing with a demon or a genuine broken part, ask this question:
*Do you love and worship Jesus Christ, who is eternal God?
Demons do not love and adore Jesus. They will not admit it, as love is foreign to them, as they are evil, inherently. However, there has been a few occassions where a demon stated they “loved Jesus.” Them even saying this is truly remarkable as it takes incredible demonic resistance to repeat those words. But they say it with disdain and in a hateful tone (ensure you discern the tone of the voice as genuine parts will lovingly tell you they adore and worship Christ). I have never encountered a demon who lovingly told me they adore Jesus. Never! 99.9% of the time they won’t even utter those words!
The second test is found in 1 John 4:
“Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming…”
Genuine parts can be brought to Jesus. When they do come to Jesus, they will acknowledge Jesus has come in the flesh as God. Demons will not repeat these words ~ I… “acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh.” Most demons will not say these words. If a demon does say these words. Ask this question:
*Do you believe this as a personal article of belief?
The third test is found in Galatians 5:
“But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.”
Demons will NOT exhibit the fruit of the Spirit but genuine parts can and will, in time (if the core person has been born again). This is another means to determine if one is a demon or a broken part; is to observe the fruit of their tongue, actions, etc.
Utilize these tests to determine if you are dealing with an genuine part or an evil spirit. Utilize all three if necessary. They are true tests that have stood the time as they stem from the very heart of God.
We have discovered in counseling those who suffer from demonization and dissociation, a demon tactic, one that is not readily known to many in this work. One that every minister needs to be aware of.
The enemy will keep human parts, those dissociative identities, from experiencing wholeness and healing, through the means of locking them up, certain human parts that they might have a right to, to demonize. Evil spirits will enslave parts, bind them and lock them up, to keep them from experiencing healing through Christ. Often times these parts are so deep within the soul nature that it takes alot of perservance to dig and dig until locating the parts that are locked.
In Scripture we read of angels, at times, having keys. In Revelation 9 and 20 we see this reality. Demons will often have keys in their possession upon locking up a part. So, the deliverance worker will often times need to locate the demon(s) who might have a key to unlock the part that has been confined. In Matthew 16 we read that believers have the keys to the kindgom, we have the spiritual authority to bind, to loose, to obtain the keys from the enemy. These keys are a spiritual reality. These evil spirits will hide these keys in attempt to keep anyone from unlocking those parts that they locked away (and in most cases are torturing).
One needs to locate the keys and ask the holy angels of God to take the key from the demon and then locate the part that has been secured (we also have the authority to take the keys from the demons in Christ). The angel will be able to use the key to unlock the part. The part that has been locked up will need the loving care of Jesus. The part probably has endured much abuse (often these demonic spirits will utilize spiritual weapons that they possess to hurt the part) and isolation. Will need some immediate healing from Jesus. Also locate the weapon that the demon might have used and take it away so it cannot pass it on to another demon within the person.
This subject needs to be explored more as these evil spirits are locking up wounded human parts and keeping them from experiencing the healing touch of Jesus. There is an urgency to ensure we unlock the parts, so liberation can be experienced by those who reside in darkness and spiritual confinement.
