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
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.
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!
