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
About a year ago I was invited to speak to a home church outside of Chicago. In one meeting alone, 5 individuals manifested demons. It was unbelieveable as while I was ministering, evil spirits, out of anger in that they were being exposed, manifested in some vile ways. One lady I conducted an exorcism on during this home meeting had a family history of witchcraft. After she was delivered from many evil spirits she asked if I would meet her mother. I consented.
Later that night, having already spent over 7 hours ministering, I was welcomed into the home of the young lady’s mother that had spent years in the occult. In our conversations with her she shared something that she participated in as a child that was outright bizarre…as a little girl she was given the ability to fly.
That’s right…the ability to fly… (This is a supernatural power that devout spiritists are known to have…my adopted African brother knew a man in his village that had the ability to fly which caused the villagers great fear).
When she was a little girl she was able to fly in her parents living room. It started soon after getting a special dress from her father who came home with this dress after a business trip. Every time she put this dress on she felt this strange power overcome her. So, early one morning she put the special dress on and went into the living room…as she entered the living she felt this strange power literally lift her up from the ground into the air and she began to fly around in circles. This went on a few minutes.
For several weeks she would get up early to fly before anyone would get up & put on that special dress. She really liked flying around the living room. But she knew if anyone caught her flying she would lose the power.
Well, after several weeks of flying, guess what happened?
Her older sister actually caught her flying around the living room. I spoke with her too and she verified the story. She was stunned as a little girl to see her younger sister flying around. She watched her sister fly around for a minute before making her presence known and when she did she exclaimed, “Teach me how to fly too.”
The younger sister was never able to fly again.
I tell you all of this to convey this message…
When your child says they have the ability to do something strange or have experienced something otherworldly. LISTEN to them! This young girl tried to share her experiences with her parents and they thought she fabricated the story. If your child (or any child for that matter) has seen a monster, a ghost, a demon, etc. believe them! Don’t mock them or dismiss their story. You are losing a great opportunity to assist them as these things are desiring to hurt the child spiritually.
Children are needing people whom will believe them, many of them have experienced supernatural activity early in life. If someone had intervened in many cases, much spiritual harm could be avoided!
I have been performing exorcisms around the globe for many years and have seen many thousands find liberation from evil spirits. Most of the exorcisms I have conducted over the years have but lasted less than a few hours. A handful involved several meetings spanning a few months. Then there have been some cases that involved years of direct involvement. These cases usually involved some deep dissociation concerns.
In such cases the kind of evil spirits that I was dealing with do not go out except by prayer and fasting. These are severe cases involving powerful demons. Jesus has dealt with such spirits. It was recorded in Holy Scripture that on a few occasions Jesus’ disciples had also encountered some of these kinds of demons. In some severe cases of demonic enslavement there is a call for more prayer and only then will deliverance be achieved.
As I mentioned I have dealt with a few very extreme cases of demonic possession that literally took years to resolve and in each case it was prevailing prayer that brought forth the victory, sometimes fasting for days. In these cases perseverance in prayer is the key to victory. We are involved in an incredible spiritual war that sometimes involves some very powerful demons that are not easily defeated. There is a cost and many are not willing to count the cost, but if one presses on, victory will be a reality, which will result in the glorification of Jesus Christ. Perseverance is a key to victory.
As Jesus told His disciples who were dealing with a severe case of demonic possession, “This kind can come out by nothing but prayer and fasting.” There is no easier solution – we must not take the road to less resistance. We must stand firm in our faith that nothing is impossible for God and His Son will prevail. We must pray with perseverance until victory in realized.
It’s important those whom minister in deliverance know that the whole process is a mystery, whereby the Holy Trinity liberates a soul from demonic bondage. We will not know all things, it is what it is so we might totally trust Him who delivers!
Dissociation is becoming more common as more and more individuals are experiencing trauma and abuse. My precious wife and I are dealing with a young woman overseas (we have traveled to her location and planning on doing so again very soon) who is suffering from severe demonization and dissociation and we covet your prayers…as these are often very complex and dangerous cases. I have shared some of these experiences on another forum but worth repeating here…
Also commonly known as Dissociate Identity Disorder (DID), dissociation occurs often in cases where there is occult abuse and/or practice. Merriam-Webster’s definition of dissociation as found online is,
“the separation of whole segments of the personality (as in multiple personality) or of discrete mental processes (as in the schizophrenias) from the mainstream of consciousness or of behavior.”
Dissociation, the breaking up of the soul nature, usually occurs when severe trauma has occurred. In the realm of the occult we have come across a number of people who, as a result of occult abuse, dissociated in their soul nature, resulting in many personalities being formed within the person. I have personally dealt with individuals who have had hundreds of personalities within a very complex system that included animal personalities, deaf and mute ones and demonized personalities. By God’s grace, however, we have seen tremendous healing and wholeness take place in the lives of many in this area of ministry.
Stephanie was a family member who had endured some severe sexual abuse as a young girl and as a teenager. This abuse along with some occult activity, Stephanie had called upon Satan at one point, resulted in her dissociating and creating 2 different personalities. During an exorcism with Stephanie we encountered numerous demons that invaded her through the years. One spirit revealed, to my astonishment, that there were 4 personalities within her soul. I spoke with the first 2 that manifested. I immediately discerned that these 2 so-called personalities were not genuine personalities but rather demons. They confessed to that being true.
I asked them why they were masquerading as personalities and they revealed they were masquerading to afflict the 2 genuine personalities. The evil spirits had hoped to deceive the personalities to thinking they were genuine personalities also, with the plan to destroy them or to hinder them from ever knowing God’s healing power. I commanded the spirits to leave in the name of Jesus. They obeyed. I then proceeded to minister to the 2 genuine personalities that were created as result of the abuse (they held unto some of the abuse, in order for the rest of Stephanie to go on living her life). One was named “Shy Stephanie” and the other “Timid Stephanie.” Both spoke with my wife and I for a few minutes, as I shared that God wanted to bring wholeness to Stephanie and how God wanted them to integrate to the core personality.
The goodness of God reached out to the personalities and a miracle took place as both of them merged with the core personality. Finally Stephanie was free and healed.
To many this topic of dissociation is mysterious and downright weird. With occult crime increasing in many parts of the world and abuse being afflicted upon millions, dissociation will become more and more common among the general population. Despite the increased frequency of abuse and occult crime, God in His mercy allows dissociation. It is a gift from God, a defense mechanism, for many enduring tremendous abuse and neglect.
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.
