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
For the past two decades in multiple nations of the globe I have counseled with those suffering from dissociation and demonization numbering in the thousands. I have studied under one of the foremost authorities in the field of MPD/DID and have spent countless hours with those who have DID. I even have family members who had DID so this subject is dear to me. I believe there is a great need to better understand this subject. This thread is simply a very basic guide on the subject, an introduction to this world.
Psalm 34:18 tells us that our loving God is very much interested in those who have DID.
“The LORD is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.”
Note: Those who have dissociation have a severe broken heart (by the way dissociation is a fancy word to describe one with a severe broken heart).
There are countless people who have MPD. The Body of Christ has an obligation to intervene, to heal and deliver those under the chains of the devil. Known as Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID), dissociation occurs often in cases where there is early childhood abuse/trauma, 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. This allows the pain of the abuse and trauma to be transferred to another part of the soul so that core person can survive.
To better understand dissociation one needs to grasp the makeup of humans…
The Dynamics of Human Beings
- God created all human beings with a body, soul (the heart), and spirit – 1 Thessalonians 5:22
- God created all humans with incredible power of the soul nature – Genesis 2:19-20 (could include the ability to dissociate)
- God knows the affects of evil upon humans and allows for an escape – Psalms 124:6-8 (dissociation is a form of escape from all forms of evil)
- The breaking of the heart, the fragmentation of the soul (the biblical wording) can occur when abuse and/or trauma occurs– Psalms 7:1-2, 69:20, 147:3
Dissociation and Trauma
- Severe Abuse and Trauma within young children often brings about dissociation as they are unable to run from evil externally but may from within, God in His goodness, allows the children to experience the secrets of the Kingdom (which includes the ability to run within the soul nature) – Matthew 11:24-26
- Dissociation can bring about different personalities as there is a break in the soul (as the Admin. correctly noted genuine personalities are not demons but broken parts of the human soul)
- The broken pieces can be demonized and locked up by the enemy
- The broken pieces can turn to goodness or evil
- The broken pieces need to be communicated to and prayed for to release the painful memories it is carrying
- Cults can bring about dissociation in an attempt to conceal information or to create personalities that are programmed to be loyal and to possess evil spirits/powers
- The broken pieces can be programmed to act like animals (possess animal spirits)
My wife and I have seen many healed of dissociation through the power of the cross of Jesus. This work can be quite complex and difficult but it honors God as it is a labor of love to free those from demonic beings and bring inner healing. The following are some general guidelines to follow as one ministers in this area…
- Understand the difference between genuine fragments of the soul and evil demons (conduct a spiritual test)
- Understand that demons can masquerade as a fragmented part (expel the demons)
- Understand that demons can enter personalities (expel the demons)
- Locate all the personalities and bring them to Jesus Christ for healing
- Unify all personalities under the Lordship of Jesus Christ!
- Merge the personalities with the core person through the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit.
In Second Corinthians 12 we read of the apostle Paul describing an experience that many in the occult refer to as an out of body experience (or astral projection). Paul writes,
“I must go on boasting. Although there is nothing to be gained, I will go on to visions and revelations from the Lord. I know a man in Christ who fourteen years ago was caught up to the third heaven. Whether it was in the body or out of the body I do not know–God knows. And I know that this man–whether in the body or apart from the body I do not know, but God knows– was caught up to paradise. He heard inexpressible things, things that man is not permitted to tell.”
This heavenly experience was brought upon by the Lord not by some occult force or implementation. There may be times God permits a heavenly experience, that may involve being “out of body,” to carry out His divine will in an individuals life. This is the Lord’s prerogative. The problem with this recent interest in astral projection, soul travel, and out-of-body-experiences (OBE) is that it centers on occultic means to carry this out. Nowhere are we told in Holy Scripture to seek an out-body-experience or to astral project.
In astral projection the conscious mind (the soul nature) leaves the physical body (the body nature) and moves into the astral body (a spiritual body). When one participates in this supernatural phenomenon, the person remains attached to their physical body by a silver “umbilical type” like cord. When one travels on an astral plane (a spiritual realm) one might meet other humans, unknown beings, animals, or visit spiritual places. I do not believe an occultist can astral project and travel to known places in their own power—such as leaving ones body and travel to the Niagara Falls (in Canada) for example. I, however, do believe, demons are capable of supernaturally carrying people (and at times just ones soul) to other locations. In Matthew 24:31 and Luke 16:22 we see angels carrying this task out—transporting humans. This is what happens when one astral projects—the unsuspecting soul is taken by a demon, thereby, traveling in the astral realms. This allows the person soul traveling to experience what they (the spirit carrying the individual) have devised to keep the person in further bondage to them. When people report of soul traveling to various places around the world, more often then not they are actually being deceived by the devil, who is capable of distorting your mind and making you believe you actually traveled to these locales or astral planes, when in reality you have been fed a lie. It appears that the devil has the unique ability to instantaneously project a false reality and thereby deceiving the one who believes they are actually traveling on some kind of astral plane (see Matthew 4).
The problem of astral projection is it opens ones body to demonic possession. When one participates in soul travel you allow your body to be unprotected as your soul, which consist of the mind, emotions, and will, leaves your body. It is the mind (part of the soul nature), which wards off evil. It is our free will that lends us the ability to resist the devil and his demons. When you permit your soul to leave your body, essentially you’re leaving a door open for demons to enter your body at any point.
Also, this goes much deeper…
When one participates in soul travel, it is entirely possible for the souls (not the spirit nature) to enter within the soul nature of another human being hence the term human interject. We have come across many cases of demonization where a actual human soul part will communicate to me via the victim’s mouth or the victim will describe seeing the person from within or hearing the person (now sometimes it’s an demon masquerading as a actual human). Now, be mindful there is a distinction between a human interject and a dissociative identity.
- Human interjects are parts of human souls that are stemming from an external source (usually witches, occultists, satanists, etc who seek to torment)
- Dissociative identities are internal fragmented parts of one’s soul. They are present to assist in their survival not for their destruction.
- Human interjects can, if there are demonic rights present, invade (with the aid of a demon) a person’s soul nature and afflict dissociative identities and even enter the fragemented part.
- Human interjects are NOT part of one’s soul nature created by God. They are invaders and need to be treated as such (one has authority in Christ to force out these human interjects)
Recently, at a deliverance conference, I dealt with a human interject inside a person and after getting rid of the spiritual rights that allowed the demon to aid this human soul to invade, we commanded the interject to leave and it did!
These human interjects are becoming more and more common and causing spiritual havoc in many lives all over the globe! Deliverance workers need to be aware of this reality and to keep in mind to test to see whether you are dealing with a demon, a human interject, a dissociative identity, an ancestral dissociative identity, etc.
Recently, a few ministers have approached me about the subject of “spiritual surgery,” as more and more deliverance ministers, exorcists, etc are coming across individuals with cursed objects, animals, etc within their body nature. I have seen numerous objects, animals, even a fetus leave the bodies of people.
There are multiple reasons why cults, sects, and various occult groups place cursed objects within bodies, we do know the primary reason is to torment the victim. This ancient practice of infusing individuals with cursed objects is becoming more common in recent years. We need to be equipped in performing spiritual surgery to assist those tormented with cursed objects within their bodies!
I have been able to witness cursed objects dissolve within individuals with simple prayer and use of spiritual weapons (such as sacred oil, holy water, use of the Holy Scriptures, etc). Other times, however, the objects will not dissolve so the minister has to resort in bringing the objects out of the flesh or mouth. Either way the Holy Spirit leads, victory is assured through faith in Jesus Christ alone!
I have personally witness, with my very own eyes, objects coming out of individuals and animals leaving bodies. I would encourage one to first and foremost be directed by the Spirit of God. There are a few tips I learned over the years that can be effective…
- Locate the specific demons that might be holding unto the animal or object (I recall dealing with one case where there were over a dozen spirits holding unto one animal part).
- Locate the right by which the demon is holding unto animal.
- Command the animal and object to dissolve in Jesus name (often times this works). Use some of the spiritual weapons God has blessed us with including holy water, sacred oil, the Scriptures, etc.
- If the object doesn’t dissolve then command the demons to grab hold of the animal/object and to depart via the flesh or mouth in Jesus name!
Dear Friends of Jesus,
The testimonies continue to flow into our direction of changed lives. Not only changed lives, but lives that are now changing others. This is the lasting fruit of the deliverance ministry to not only deliver souls but for these precious souls to then minister healing and liberation to others. This is multiplication at work. This is a unique aspect of this mission. We not only do we drive out demons but we also teach others how to minister deliverance to others. Thus many generations to come this mission will impact families. Just minutes ago I received this POWERFUL testimony that you must read:
“Hello Pastor Jay; I’m sure you will remember my husband and I. We went to New Bethel International Ministries in Scarborough, Ontario. in January. We were there for the better part of 2 days, learning more about deliverance and having deliverance take place in my life. You even had us give a testimony and then I did a deliverance on one of the congregants. Gerry and I just want to thank you for all you did. Life has been amazing.
The devil and his henchmen have tried to worm their way back in but I know the voice of my Father so victory is mine. Complete deliverance has not come easy as it needs to be walked out every day. The point is, I am walking it out. I work with Holy Spirit every day and when something feels “off”, it gets dealt with right away. The Lord has continued to bring healing and wholeness. I’ve had a couple of totally amazing “God” encounters which brought much healing to the wounded parts of me. I would love to share those experiences with you at some point.
I am going to be starting a ministry in the near future called “broken girl, triumphant warrior.” This is something, a vision for my life, that God has deposited in me. We are at peace and our home is peaceful now. Soaking music filters in every single day, even as we sleep. The Bible is in bed with us at night and our prayer life and deeper understanding of God’s Word has increased. Thank you, man of God, for all you did for Gerry and I. We need more people like you who are not afraid of deliverance ministry. You have impacted our lives in a huge way and there could never be enough words to tell you how grateful we are. If you are in the area again, please let us know. It would be so great to see you face to face. Perhaps we could even Skype some time. We pray for you and your family every day and we speak blessing over you and ask God to protect you always.
Thank you again for your obedience to the Lord. Because of you, many are being set free. That is a priceless gift….a real treasure. We look forward to hearing from you at some point in time and once again, we thank you for being instrumental in changing our lives and our marriage. May God richly bless you Jay!!!!!”
(You can watch her testimony her by clicking here)
Because of the love we extended to this family they are now starting a ministry themselves –”Broken Girl, Triumphant Warrior.” I vividly recall that night of this dear sister’s deliverance and deep healing. Right after she was set free herself from evil spirits I had her minister to another woman, publicly, before a packed church, thus driving out many demonic spirits from her! Isn’t that AWESOME! That is New Testament discipleship. Not going to a theological school (though there is nothing wrong with that, I even graduated from one), not attending a workshop (there is nothing with that either, I love workshops). New Testament discipleship is following Jesus and allowing Jesus to flow through your life to impact others after He has impacted yours! Her testimony speaks so many volumes.
She mentioned “deliverance has not come easy as it needs to be walked out each day.” WOW!!! There’s much to say about this. This is an important teaching point I emphasize in each meeting. We must be persistent, we must have perseverance in this war. We will fail more then we would like however just get right back up and serve Jesus!
She mentioned in this testimony how she is utilizing weapons in this war –praise music soaks up her home, the Bible is ever present, this family is calling upon Jesus. Result? There is peace in their lives and home! This is another critical aspect I emphasize in our meetings. We have weapons and we better utilize them!
She also mentioned a key spiritual principle that is worthy repeating a millions times –obedience=blessings. When we faithfully serve Jesus, God will honor our work with so many spiritual blessings namely SOULS! That is my heart to see SOULS changed for all of eternity! Like she said, “that is a priceless gift –a real treasure.”
I’m so deeply humbled by these email testimonies from literally around the world –from Charismatic Catholics in Nigeria who are writing to me to tell me they are utilizing our Freedom Fighter materials, to precious former Muslims in the Middle East who use our videos to reach souls, to those in Latin America who also utilize our Freedom Fighter materials, to our many friends in Australia and New Zealand who have been so inspired by our work for the Kingdom that they are now starting ministries themselves to reach others. I am deeply humbled. I know I am ordinary man who has failed so many times however I have a soft heart for Jesus and He knows my heart’s desire. This same gracious God desires to use YOU my brother, my sister.
Just a few hours ago I received this email:
“Jay, As always, I have enjoy reading how God continues to powerfully use you for His glory, what a mighty God we serve. Since your February visit to Perth, I have felt spiritual changes in myself – one change is more compassion for people under oppression of the enemy. I feel I am changing spiritual direction. I also know God is moving me more and more into teaching on spiritual warfare and setting people free, more than ever before. I am currently doing two days teaching and deliverance each week, but I feel to add another session, possibly one evening a week at another church I hope. I have people interested in learning and doing.”
Here’s another email testimony:
“Hi Jay, I pray everything has settled down for you and your family. It has been a huge week here, I have been praying and pressing in and I am feeling alot alot alot better. Firstly I want to say thank you for your commitment to the Lord and the ministry that you are in. Wow is the only word applicable to the difference I am feeling. The teaching was awesome and I pray I am able to keep learning in the ministry of Deliverance. It is fabulous to be able to sleep and here the Lord clearly again.Incredible the influence there has been over my family for generations. For years I have spoken out that I am the generation to stop everything from the past and cut it off so my children are free to be everything that God created them to be and I am now seeing that actually happening in the spiritual not just the natural…
Our city, Nelson, NZ, now has a feeling of more peace and stillness in the spiritual atmosphere which is awesome. I know God has opened up something here and wanting us to push forward as Warriors for Jesus…I feel there is a strong binding of the devil and we will be able to minister alot more effectively….Time to set the captives free!!!!!!!!!”
See the fruit of this mission? I could sit here for hours copying and pasting testimonies I get all the time. We are inspiring thus ministries are being birthed! Many thousands through the years impacted by this mission are impacting thousands themselves.
This is a critical element to the public ministry! We must conduct deliverance ministry in public so the watching world can see the POWER of God in action! This WILL inspire so many for generations to come!
Our organizer in Perth Australia wrote the following report from our last visit to Australia:
Jay’s visit to Perth, Western Australia – 27th Feb – 3rd March inclusive.
What an awesome time we have all experienced as Jay unceasingly ministered to sooooo many of God’s people. It’s been a full-on week with virtually a packed house at each meeting. We held three evening sessions, one all-day seminar finishing with ministry sessions in the evening into the night. Then Sunday morning service at the same Lutheran Church, with an evening meeting at another Church until 11.30pm when Jay had to get to the airport for midnight, he would have just made it!!
Soooo many people were touched, healed, and set free, to God be all the glory. I hardly know where to start with this report. First, I would like to thank Ps Milo and his church for making their church and all facilities available to us totally free of charge, what a blessing. Also thanks to all those who helped with note taking when I was otherwise engaged, also everyone else who helped make it happen for each meeting, in whatever way no matter how minute – it all adds up to making things run smoothly, my thanks and appreciation go to you all from the bottom of my heart.
Thank you Kobus for being such a big part of this ministry in Perth. Also, It was a joy and blessing to meet the Melbourne Team, Mark, Barb and Belinda, it was wonderful working with you all and developing new friendships. Belinda – thanks for the Holy Ghost neck massage! My stiff and sore neck was loosened and healed, praise God.
So much ministry was done, yet not every person received ministry for various reasons too numerous to try to explain. A couple of relative reasons is that there is such an enormous need with insufficient time in each day, plus the fact that human energy has its limits. Jay was flat out trying to get time to rest, and be refreshed in spirit and body. People are so hungry for help and knowledge, and with it comes demand which cannot always be fulfilled. Nevertheless, many were helped, and gloriously set free by our loving Lord Jesus.
Last year, when Jay visited Perth in early December for two days, which were equally full-on sessions. Seeing the need especially for women, I went to the Lord for answers, and He told me to have a ladies’ meeting, so we did, we started with a ladies only evening meeting on the Wednesday. To my amazement eighty ladies of filled the auditorium. What an awesome night. Manifestations of various abuses abounded, broken and fragmented hearts healed and restored by Jesus. It was over- whelming to see the very big need amongst our Christian sisters.
Unfortunately, because the meetings were so hectic I was not able to journal every detail, but with the help of others we did get quite a few noted. Interestingly at every meeting not only were there more women than men attending, but it was mostly the women who manifested, and got set free. Women appear to be more open and ready to admit they have a need and want help. Bless you all who received help from our loving Saviour. Please keep your freedom, and build on it for His glory.
Jezebel spirit – was rampant. Many, many women at each meeting were gloriously set free from this evil witch of a spirit – too many to list in detail. Jezebel always did its best to resist, but eventually had to go to the pit. It came out of most screaming and threatening, but it came out. All glory to God. Each person testified to the tremendous relief they felt, their whole countenance changed after deliverance. And virtually every one of them made statements such as – “thank you so much, I feel so much better” or “I feel so much lighter” or “why has no-one has been able to help me before now” or “I’ve been wanting help for years”. The Church needs to wake up.
One dear sister had a very stubborn Jezebel spirit, spirit of Satan deep fear, spite, anger, a vicious and vindictive spirit of rage which she had inherited from her father. Her heart was broken into four pieces, as she was growing up at – ages 4 yrs, 7 yrs, 9 yrs, and 11yrs, culminating in suicidal thoughts that started at age 18 years. She was so desperate for help. As Jay ministered to her it was revealed that she also had 24,000 (twenty-four thousand) demons tormenting her, this figure was actually revealed to Jay by the demons themselves. They had all been tormenting her, all her life. They remained there because no one had told them to go – guess what? They soon got told and were sent to the pit. Jesus prevailed, and gloriously healed her fragmented heart setting her totally free. She was over-joyed, and a totally different woman. Oh! the love and mercy of God is indescribable.
As Jay taught and ministered at each meeting on the generational curses from both father and mother’s sides, countless demons manifested around the room. They were all set free, the demons got sent to the pit. Also many others got set free while just sitting under the anointing - too many to individually list.
One woman had suffered rejection from when she was in her mother’s womb. This rejection stayed with her all her life. Her health was severely affected. Her inflictions included very poor self-worth. But our loving Jesus reaffirmed His love for her and her worth in His eyes, and totally restored and healed her dissociated heart.
Another lady also had the spirit of jezebel, and suffered severe rejection and abuse from age 6 years. She inherited a spirit of guilt from her mother’s side. As well as having a spirit of isolation that caused severe depression. But Jesus healed her heart and set her totally free. Yet, another lady had suffered terrible torment for 14 years by a spirit of isolation was also set free. She was astounded at her new found freedom. Praise God for His love and mercy.
One very young woman was so entrenched in Jezebel who showered her with gifts. Jezebel decked her out with jewelry galore – she removed rings from every finger, bracelets, necklaces, anklets, crowns and even gowns. All were removed. This dear lady suffered from psychosis, asthma, and anxiety. While Jay was ministering to her Jezebel was trying to get her to run away from the meeting, but God had other plans, He literally kept her there stamping her feet in the same spot as if running on the spot until her deliverance was complete, she was totally and gloriously set free, glory to our God.
Numerous people were set free from generational curses from father and mother lineage. Spirits of occult, idolatry, Jezebel witchcraft, blaspheming spirits, mocking spirits, spirits of death, to name a few, all manifested and came out.
A lady was freed after many years from the spirit of incest. As a young woman she had inappropriately kissed her brother. It opened the door for the spirit of incest to enter her. She was so over-joyed at being set free.
Freemasonry, Eastern Star, Single Eye - When Jay began dealing with freemasonry in each meeting many were set free at every meeting. At one meeting one lady in particular had this cult on both sides of her family line i.e. father and mother. As well as other demons manifesting very strongly. She struggled to take off the noose and hood, at first. But was soon gloriously set free from every oppression.
Illuminati (mind controlling demons) – As Jay mentioned these the same lady began manifesting the many demons that were oppressing her. Her face contorted. She was screaming very loudly, her hands and fingers stiffened and were claw-like. I thought she was going to scratch one of us. It took a lot of persistence to get rid of those demons. But they were all finally sent to the pit. Praise the Lord.
On one occasion as Jay was ministering to one lady, the demons had her body twisted over, her fingers were spread out and stiff, she could not bend them. Jay anointed her hands and commanded the demons to let them go, eventually they did let go. At that point the Lord told me it was a spirit of masturbation. This is a demon that usually comes out of the hands, it is a very stubborn demon, often the hands have to be shaken repeatedly before the demon goes out.
One married couple expecting their second child were gloriously set free. The man while sitting and listening to Jay heard the demons in himself stirring him up to hit Jay, he was struggling not to obey them. As he was quietly manifesting in his seat, Jay went over and cast them out. His wife who is heavily pregnant with their second child was also set free, baby in her womb was prayed for, and their first child a son who was suffering with autism was also set free. Then Jay had the husband anoint his wife, pray over her and their unborn child. Oh! how glorious is our God.
As Jay ministered numerous times he called for the help of angels who came and obeyed Jay’s request. Jay also used the sword ‘Bible’ as a warfare tool that had the demons screaming. He also used the Blood and the anointing oil – these and other spiritual tools are provided by the Lord for us – Believers – as weapons of warfare for against the enemy. Praise God for His provision.
The majority of women ministered to during this five day period were in some way of another abused and assaulted as little children. They suffered pain, rejection, fear, isolation and so much more resulting in fragmented and dissociated hearts, but our loving Saviour true to the Word of God healed every broken heart, revealed Himself to each of them and made them whole again. To God be all the glory.
The highlight of these five days for me was when a marriage was restored – involving a family of five. Briefly – two months ago there was a separation between husband and wife. I was personally involved in interceding for restoration of the marriage. After two months it did not look promising in the natural, in fact it looked like becoming another addition to the Christian divorce statistics, but God had other plans. Jay ministered to them and the marriage was radically restored with the couple reaffirming their love for each other and renewing their marriage vows. Their three children were delighted to know all was back to ‘normal’ for them.
Oh! What a mighty God we serve, Amen.
