Invalid reasons for staying in a church you know teaches false doctrine

When the scales of deception are removed from their eyes, many find themselves in a dilemma. They realise that the church that they love, attend, and where they were possibly even saved, teaches false doctrine. False doctrines such as word of faith, the prosperity gospel, dominion theology and of course the unhealthy mixture of all three found in the New Apostolic Reformation are working their leaven in the visible church.

Furthermore, accompanying these false doctrines are false practices and manifestations.  Individuals are torn in two. Should they leave? or should they stay and attempt to navigate the spiritual minefield that they find themselves in? This post looks at invalid reasons that some use to justify their refusal to walk away from a poisoned well.

If you are not familiar with the false doctrines mentioned above, here are some examples of people and ministries that teach them: Bethel church (Bill Johnson & Kris Vallotton), Hillsong (Brian & Bobbie Houston, Carl Lentz), Randy Clark, Lance Wallnau, Todd Bentley, Georgian Banov, Heidi Baker, Joyce Meyer, John & Lisa Bevere, Christine Caine, Rick Joyner, Patricia King, Cindy Jacobs, Chuck Pierce, Craig Groeschel, Rick Warren, Paula White, T D Jakes, Steven Furtick, Joel Osteen, Benny Hinn, Kenneth Copeland, Todd White, Beth Moore, Bill Hybels, Andy Stanley, Mike Bickle, Ann Voskamp, and many more.

The following reasons are not legitimate reasons to stay in a church that teaches false doctrine:

1.  I’ll simply ignore the bad teaching – eat the meat and spit out the bones

To put it another way – don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater. There is no biblical mandate for this argument. Those who teach contrary to the gospel need to be marked and avoided, not marked and ignored. “Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.” (Romans 16:17)

In his letter to Timothy, Paul explains that someone approved by God “rightly divides the word of truth.” (2 Timothy 2:15) He then gives an example, of two teachers who did not rightly divide God’s word: “Hymenaeus and Philetus,who have swerved from the truth, saying that the resurrection has already happened. They are upsetting the faith of some.” (vs 18)

“Finally, Paul tells us what our response should be: “But God’s firm foundation stands, bearing this seal: “The Lord knows those who are his,” and, “Let everyone who names the name of the Lord depart from iniquity.” (vs 19)

By sitting under a pastor who twists the word of God, you are submitting yourself to someone God has disqualified and submitting yourself to someone who is responsible for damaging the faith of their followers. Your pastor should in fact be the one rebuking those who teach false doctrine. He “must hold firm to the trustworthy word as taught, so that he may be able to give instruction in sound doctrine and also to rebuke those who contradict it”. (Titus 1:9)

The church at Thyatira was rebuked for “tolerating that woman Jezebel, who calls herself a prophetess and is teaching and seducing my servants.” (Revelation 2:20) We must avoid the irreverent babble of those who distort the word of God to suit their own carnal appetites. False teachers need to be silenced, not supported: For there are many who are insubordinate, empty talkers and deceivers, especially those of the circumcision party. “They must be silenced, since they are upsetting whole families by teaching for shameful gain what they ought not to teach.” (Titus 1:10-11)

A ravenous wolf has nothing to offer you: they come to steal, kill and destroy.

Don’t fool yourself into thinking the situation is static in the sense that the current level of false doctrine will remain constant. It begins with singing Hillsong or Jesus Culture songs, and before you can say “heaven meets earth like a sloppy wet kiss” your pastor will be introducing the doctrines of Hillsong and Bethel.

Soon your leaders will find it necessary to attend a Bethel or Hillsong conference, and then new materials and courses such as “sozo” or a school of supernatural ministry will be introduced. You will probably observe new terminology coming from your pulpit, as new teachings come with some catch phrases. These words, for example, accompany NAR teachings: “shift, alignment, presence, atmosphere, impartation, acceleration”.

God’s word is ignored or twisted beyond it’s original meaning, resulting in progressive error: “while evil people and impostors will go on from bad to worse, deceiving and being deceived. But as for you, continue in what you have learned and have firmly believed, knowing from whom you learned it and how from childhood you have been acquainted with the sacred writings, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus. All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.” (2 Timothy 3:13-17)

2.  I’ll just stay and be a witness

That may work for a short while, but at some point you are going to be accused of ‘sowing division’ and your ‘rebellious spirit’ will be dealt with by your leaders. Your first port of call in any case should be your leaders. A meeting with them, explaining your concerns, will quickly determine whether your discernment is appreciated. There were no undercover believers in the early church; they broke away from the various sects and teachings of the pharisees. If you want to be a testimony then you need to leave and have no fellowship with darkness. Those who are interested in truth, will come and ask you for the reasons you left and that will be your opportunity to present the truth.

3.  I have family members in the church; if I leave I will offend them?

This is a difficult case, but one that Jesus warned about: “Do you think that I have come to give peace on earth? No, I tell you, but rather division. For from now on in one house there will be five divided, three against two and two against three. They will be divided, father against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law.” (Luke 12:51-53)

You have the advantage of spending time with your family members and giving your reasons for leaving. I realise there may be some complications, but ultimately your leaving may be the catalyst for their eyes to be opened. You may offend them if you leave, but you won’t be offending God. What is offensive, and indeed unloving, is to stay silent when doctrines that may shipwreck the faith of your family members are not addressed.

You have a duty to warn your family and friends. They should not feel at ease among enemies of the cross. “I know that after my departure fierce wolves will come in among you, not sparing the flock; and from among your own selves will arise men speaking twisted things, to draw away the disciples after them. Therefore be alert, remembering that for three years I did not cease night or day to admonish every one with tears.” (Acts 20:29-31)

4.  I stand to lose too much

The opposite is true; you stand to lose much by participating in any ministry that has swerved from the truth, and is deceiving people. Many are heavily invested in their churches. Apart from the possible loss of friendships that are dear, there are other factors that may come into play. A church I attended had a “business directory” for church members. We were encouraged to support the businesses of church members, nothing wrong with that. Some may however find themselves in a situation where their business is largely dependent on the support of fellow church members, or even the church itself. The choice then is simple – God or mammon. The same God who leads us out of deception, will provide for our needs and make a way when disaster seems imminent. Your spiritual welfare must be prioritized above any earthly concern. You can never lose when you obey the word of God.

5.  Despite some bad doctrine God still moves

We need to clarify what “God still moves” actually means. By this argument, people are usually referring to signs and wonders, testimonies from people in the church, or perhaps their own experience. I’m sure you have heard similar expressions such as these: “the presence of the Lord was so strong during the service” or “there was such a powerful anointing during the meeting and Holy Spirit was present.” When subjective experiences take precedence over the word of God, we are dealing with mysticism, not biblical Christianity. People falling over backwards, gold dust appearing during services, rain falling during a prayer meeting, fire tunnels, goosebumps during worship, and even signs and wonders are not evidence of God moving.

These last days will include many signs and wonders, but they won’t be a result of God moving, but of deception:

“For false christs and false prophets will arise and perform great signs and wonders, so as to lead astray, if possible, even the elect.” (Matthew 24:24)

“The coming of the lawless one is by the activity of Satan with all power and false signs and wonders,and with all wicked deception for those who are perishing, because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. Therefore God sends them a strong delusion, so that they may believe what is false,in order that all may be condemned who did not believe the truth but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” (2 Thessalonians 2:9-11)

In another scenario, people may actually have been saved or even healed in the church they now realise teaches false doctrine. Perhaps the church started off well, but gradually succumbed to the ear tickling doctrines of demons, or perhaps the church has always been rooted in NAR and other false teachings. Be thankful God is his mercy and grace has saved or healed you in spite of people, not because of them. God saved you, God healed you, be faithful to God!

6.  I will be without a spiritual covering

You have not been under a spiritual covering in the first place. The “spiritual covering” that false teachers offer is nothing but a means to manipulate and control their followers. There is no mutual submission to one another in their vocabulary. False teachers serve their own appetites, and to get what they want, they will dominate if they have to. True shepherds lead by example with pure motives: “shepherd the flock of God that is among you, exercising oversight, not under compulsion, but willingly, as God would have you; not for shameful gain, but eagerly; not domineering over those in your charge, but being examples to the flock.” ( 1 Peter 5:2-3)

We are still experiencing the influence of the heavy shepherding movement of the seventies and eighties, and the fear instilled in many due to “covering” teaching remains. Those who experienced this will know what I’m talking about. In some cases leaders had such control over those under their authority, that they had the power to determine who your spouse should be, where to live, and what work to do. If the leaders did not “have peace” or managed to find a scripture in Jeremiah for example (wrest out of context) contradicting your choice, you had little option but to submit to them.

Teachers like John Bevere, are still promoting this aberrant doctrine. This is a long quote (from one of our previous blogs) but worth repeating: “Another book by Bevere – Under Cover, promotes a pyramid model or hierarchical leadership structure in the church, the very thing Jesus and Peter warned about. It’s an abusive pastor’s dream reference book, as Bevere basically equates submitting to your pastor with submitting to God.

A far more appropriate title would have been “The Untouchables Manual For Ultimate Manipulation Of Sheep.” Based on faulty exegesis of Romans 13 which applies to civil authority not church authority, Bevere exalts church authority to a level condemned in scripture itself.

Bevere believes that if we oppose God’s delegated authority, we oppose God Himself. The consequences are severe: “Not only does it place us under the judgment of God, but it grants legal access to demonic powers. If we want to remain obedient to God and ,we have but one choice when it comes to delegated authority – submission and obedience.” p88

And it gets worse: “Our provision as well as protection could be blocked or even cut off as we disconnect ourselves from the Source of true life”.

In a conversation with the Holy Spirit, the Spirit said to Bevere: “John, if I intended for every believer to get all his information, wisdom, and direction only from prayer and communion with Me, then I’d never have instituted authority in the church. I placed authorities in the church with the full intent that My children could not get all they needed just from their prayer life. They would have to learn to recognise and hear My voice through their leaders as well.” p147

God did place leaders in the church; not to dominate people but to instruct them through rightly dividing the word of truth, and setting an example through servanthood. Furthermore, we are commanded to test all things. The Bereans were commended for comparing Paul’s teaching with scripture (Acts 17:11). Bevere makes no distinction between leadership under the old covenant with that of the new. His frequent use of Old Testament authority examples are out of context and he comes to this shocking conclusion: “..when God places His authority on a person, no matter his private or personal behaviour, we may still receive if we look beyond it and honour him as sent from God ” p116

This is in clear contradiction to scripture: “appoint elders in every town as I directed you – if anyone is above reproach, the husband of one wife, and his children are believers and not open to the charge of debauchery or insubordination.For an overseer, as God’s steward, must be above reproach. He must not be arrogant or quick-tempered or a drunkard or violent or greedy for gain, but hospitable, a lover of good, self-controlled, upright, holy, and disciplined. He must hold firm to the trustworthy word as taught, so that he may be able to give instruction in sound doctrine and also to rebuke those who contradict it.” (Titus 1:5-9)

According to Bevere’s teaching, if your pastor is a drunkard, abuses people in his congregation and teaches false doctrine, your job is to submit: “To resist delegated authority is to resist God’s authority. We should not take upon ourselves the pressure to discern beforehand whether leaders are right or not. Nor should we judge after the fact. This is not our burden, but God’s. He alone knows and can change hearts as He so desires.” p147

The same teachers that want you to be accountable, are accountable to no one. They live in comfort, concoct a new revelation at will, and have established themselves as an intermediary between God and their followers. Our head is Christ, and he has given his body gifts in the form of pastors and teachers to mature us in the faith. These leaders need certain qualifications according to scripture. Their lives need to be an example, and they need to rightly divide the word of truth (life and doctrine). Jesus Christ is your covering, and while we need to be in fellowship, remain accountable and submit to one another, leaving a church that teaches false doctrine is being obedient to your head – Christ.

7.  I play a valuable role in the church

All the more reason for you to leave, especially if you are in leadership. You may be the secretary, lead the worship, teach a bible study group, or as in my case even be one of the pastors. You might think you will let people down, and the thought of leaving can cause a sense of guilt and betrayal. This is when you need to step back, and examine the situation in the light of God’s word as well as from an eternal perspective.

When you leave a church that teaches false doctrine, you are playing a valuable role! Your actions alone will be a powerful testimony. You have made a stand for the faith and you are refusing to betray the word of God. Rather be guilty in the eyes of carnal men and women, than stand before God and give an account for compromise. Your choice is between: contending for the faith, or remaining content with a distortion of the faith.

8.  There is no alternative nearby

This is a reality for some, and it’s not just a problem for those leaving a particular church. People live in isolated areas all over the world and others live in communities with hardly any believers. Using the “no alternative” argument to remain in a church that teaches false doctrine is choosing to support a false teacher. At times, we are simply not aware of any alternative churches because we are still looking for a denomination or movement that we are familiar with. It may take a while to find a fellowship with good sound expository teaching and a body of believers that will encourage you in the faith. God has not forsaken you; you have forsaken false teaching. Keep that in mind if you find yourself in limbo as far as finding a fellowship is concerned.

Many people I speak to in South Africa, have unfortunately at some point come under the spell of Bethel church. Even though they are in a church, Bill Johnson has been teaching them. You know what I’m getting at: modern technology. There are literally thousands of good online resources at our disposal. Not having a home church is not the same thing as not growing in your faith. Study the word of God, pray, and if possible find fellowship with others who may be in the same predicament: “not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near.”  (Hebrews 10:25)

In conclusion, if you know that your church is teaching false doctrine (NAR, word of faith, prosperity gospel, seeker sensitive and other forms of false doctrine) there is no valid reason to stay. If your church has started introducing these doctrines and promotes any of the teachers mentioned, you should set up a meeting with your pastor. Be prepared and make sure you are able to articulate your concerns. Prayer is part of preparation. You are not going in to attack an individual, but are going to test their teachings. You should mention specific teachings that you find to be contradictory to the word of God, and give examples.

A pastor worth their weight in salt will want to hear what you have to say. As an overseer they should be concerned for you, and as a teacher of God’s word, they should be only too happy to let God’s word in context be the arbitrator. If they ignore your concerns, they will in all probability begin the slippery slope that leads to delusion.

Flee from pastors and churches that do not preach the gospel. You have nothing in common with an enemy of the cross. You have no business fellowshipping with those who are “tossed to and fro by the waves and carried about by every wind of doctrine, by human cunning, by craftiness in deceitful schemes.”  (Ephesians 4:14)

Come out from among them and contend earnestly for the faith! Resist, rebuke and run from those who distort the faith.

“I am astonished that you are so quickly deserting him who called you in the grace of Christ and are turning to a different gospel – not that there is another one, but there are some who trouble you and want to distort the gospel of Christ. But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed. As we have said before, so now I say again: If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you received, let him be accursed.” (Galatians 1:8-9)

The Bible, The Armour of God and The Sacred Names of God

This video is only ten minutes long and well worth watching through.

According to the KJV Bible, the name of God’s Son is Jesus Christ. So why do some now want to change it in some way?

The following is an excerpt from:

“The Name of Jesus: Does it Matter” by Dr Michael S Heisler

“One of the most frequent email questions I get concerns the name “Jesus.” More specifically, the question goes something like this:  “Isn’t the name ‘Jesus’ a pagan invention?  Shouldn’t we say “Yeshua” or Yahshua” instead?”  I’m not sure what motivates people who assign importance to this. I’m sure many are NOT trying to sound superior or more in tune with Jesus or God.  But having fielded a number of these emails, I’m also sure that IS the motivation for some.

“The question is frankly silly, since the same person (the man of Nazareth who was crucified, buried, and resurrected per the New Testament) is the referent of any of these name options. But is “Jesus” a pagan name? Isn’t “Yeshua” or “Yahshua” more accurate?

“On one level, since Jesus was Jewish his name would have been “Yeshua” or “Yehoshua” in Hebrew or Aramaic.  I would hope that the Jesus Tomb fiasco would have taught us this much.  But, on another level, so what?  Since the New Testament was written in Greek, and Christians take the New Testament as inspired, it was GOD’s choice to have the name of the Son of God rendered in GREEK, which looks like this “Iesous”.

“Some thoughts on the Greek name, now.

“First, languages are different, and so proper names are not going to be pronounced the same way. Wow.  Profound.

“Second, languages and language pronunciation (the sounds a speaker makes when air flows through or is stopped in/by the throat, mouth, lips and teeth) has no theology – a language can’t be pagan or orthodox. It just is.

“Third, there is no magic in the Hebrew pronunciation of the name of the New Testament messiah. It matters not that we call the name of the man from Nazareth something that contains the syllable “Yah” (an abbreviation of the divine tetragrammation, YHWH).  If there was, God should have decided to give us the New Testament in Hebrew or Aramaic.  It would also have helped if he’d given us a Hebrew text where the tetragrammaton (YHWH) had vowels so we’d know how it was pronounced.

“Fourth, “Yahshua” is actually not correct, if we’re going with Hebrew, given the vowel pointing in the Hebrew text.  The forms of this name/word that appear in the Hebrew text as pointed by the Masoretic scribes is “Yeshua” or “Yehoshua” (that is, for those who understand pointing) the vocal shewa is the pointing associated with the yodh in this name.  The “a” sound of “Yah” gets a vocal reduction because of the accent on the final syllable.  If you’re still awake after that, “Yah”shua is a contrived attempt to place the abbreviated form of the tetragrammation (Yah; which does occur in the Hebrew Bible) in place of the “Yeh” that actually occurs in this name.

“Fifth, the problem for Greek is that there is no “H” in the language.  Greek makes the “h” sound via what’s called a rough-breathing mark – but that mark only appears on vowels at the beginning of words.  For example, the word for “sin” in Greek is “hamartia” but the Greek word begins with an alpha (“a”). A rough-breathing mark above the alpha tells the speaker/reader to pronounce the first syllable as “ha” not “a”.  Yehoshua (“Yahshua”) has an “h” in the middle, which Greek CANNOT REPRESENT because of the rules of its language/alphabet.

“As such, “Iesous” (pronounced yay-soos) is the Greek spelling – and this corresponds precisely to “Yeshua” (which you notice has no “h” in the middle – only an “sh” which was one letter [“shin”] in Hebrew/Aramaic). Greek has no “sh” letter in its alphabet, so its spelling MUST use “s” [sigma].

“Iesous is a perfectly acceptable and understandable GREEK rendering of the Hebrew Yeshua/Yehoshua. It isn’t “pagan” —  it’s a different language.”

Recovery / Freedom from Codependency – Narcissist / Jezebel Abuse – Jesus Our Only Mediator

From an excellent series about Jezebel and Ahab spirits – aka narcissism and enablers – by Without Spot Or Blemish Ministry.

Please note: Inclusion on this site does not imply agreement with or endorsement of everything said elsewhere by that individual or organisation, or any links therein. Some information could be doctrinally unsound. “They searched the scriptures daily whether those things were so.” (Acts 17:11)  “Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God as many false prophets are gone out into the world.” (1 John 4:1)

If you have been the victim of one or more narcissists, be careful to make sure that whoever you seek counsel from understands narcissism correctly and gives the right advice that does not make the situation worse. Scripture tells us trusting in man is a snare. There is no one better to turn to than God Himself, who understands absolutely everything about everyone and everything that happened. We can ask God in the name of Jesus for his Holy Spirit to teach us and to guide us.

We need information though, and thankfully there is a plethora of helpful information available today for free on the internet. There are also many books and articles videos available about narcissism and many posts about narcissism on sites like Quora.com. As with Christianity itself though, there is a massive amount of disinformation out there and some of the information may be very inaccurate and/or misleading.

This situation like any and every other can be used by the enemy to turn to his benefit and our detriment. For sure, it can be very dangerous and destructive spiritually to listen to the wrong information, adding salt to our wounds and can easily open demonic doorways – something we definitely would do not want to do.

We should use the utmost care to discern who and what we listen to. and consider carefully whether what we are hearing fits with what we know the Bible says and our experiences. Any such information found can be used as a guide to apply as an aid to understanding what has happened or is happening now or what may happen, while not deviating from Bible principles.

We live in a sick world, and finding out about things like the common practice of ‘victim shaming’ can be extremely helpful to those already suffering from the harmful effects of abuse.

Prayer for Renunciation After Being Saved

After we accept Christ as our saviour we can renounce our past involvement with any works of darkness. We can take it further even renouncing works of darkness of our ancestors.

Renunciation prayers are a form of repentance which can give deliverance. Repenting of our sins can help to cleanse us from unrighteousness and renunciation of the sins of our ancestors can help to release us from the effects of their sins and inquity.

Specific prayers to renounce freemasonry, witchcraft and the occult, etc. can be found on this site and elsewhere on the internet. Some are long but worth saying as they only need to be said once.

This prayer though could be said from time to time as part of our spiritual warfare, to help close demonic doorways or open portals, and tear down demonic strongholds, giving demons licence grounds or legal rights to harass and torment in all the ways that they do, whether through health, financial or relationship problems, etc. Remember that demons get a toehold, a foothold, a stronghold and then a stranglehold.

Renunciation prayers are best said aloud, and for women with their head covered. If you would like to, it could be helpful to go through written prayers beforehand and make your own version, including specific names, etc.


I forgive any person who has ever hurt me, disappointed me, abandoned me, mistreated me, or rejected me in the name of Jesus.

I renounce all hatred, anger, aggression, resentment, revenge, retaliation, unforgiveness and bitterness in the name of Jesus.

I renounce all pride, haughtiness, arrogance, vanity, ego, disobedience and rebellion in the name of Jesus.

I renounce all envy, jealousy, and covetousness in the name of Jesus.

I renounce all selfishness, self-will, self-pity, self-rejection, self-hatred and self-promotion in the name of Jesus.

I renounce all backsliding, ingratitude, unthankfulness, murmuring, complaining and falsely accusing.

I renounce all lust, perversion, immorality, uncleanness, impurity, and sexual sin in the name of Jesus.

I renounce all addiction to drugs, alcohol, or any legal or illegal substance that has bound me in the name of Jesus.

I renounce all witchcraft, sorcery, divination, and occult involvement in the name of Jesus.

I renounce all ungodly soul ties and immoral relationships in the name of Jesus.

I renounce all ungodly covenants, oaths and vows made by myself or my ancestors in the name of Jesus.

I renounce all ungodly thought patterns and belief systems in the name of Jesus.

Thank you Father for deliverance and salvation we are given through the name of Jesus.

Amen.

Prayer of Renunciation and Deliverance

Father, I ask that you wash my spirit, soul and body with the blood of the Lamb.

I curse every corruptible seed that has been planted in me and I command it to wither and die, in the name of Jesus.

I command every foul, unclean spirit that may have attached itself to me, to loose me, to leave this property, to seek dry ground and never return, in Jesus name.

In the name of Jesus Christ and through His shed blood, I bind all evil spirits, astral projected spirits, or hybrid spirits that are trying to hurt or influence me. As one that has accepted Jesus Christ as personal Savior and Lord, I renounce all the sins of my ancestors back to ten generations and all forms of witchcraft that I have participated in or practiced in any way.

Since I have been co-crucified with Christ, I cancel all demonic workings against me and nail to the cross all curses, evil prayers, hexes, spells, plots, or evil schemes that have been placed against me and claim by faith they are null and void and covered under the blood of Christ.

I now take back all ground I have given over to Satan by my sins and the sins of my ancestors and claim by faith that they are all forgiven and cleansed by the blood of Jesus Christ. I claim that ground back by the authority of the Lord Jesus Christ and dedicate it to the Lord. I yield by faith every area of my life over to the Lordship of Christ and full control of the Holy Spirit. I dedicate my spirit, soul, and body to Jesus Christ and claim by faith that I am filled with the power of the Holy Spirit.

Since I have been crucified and raised with Christ, I claim by faith that through the Lord Jesus Christ that I can do all things. From this moment on, I break all holds that Satan has had on me and renounce them by the blood of Jesus Christ.

I claim by faith I have on the whole armor of God, the shield of faith to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked one, the sword of the Spirit to defeat all my enemies, and am covered under the blood of Christ. All this I claim in the name and authority of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Amen!

Prayer of Release from Witchcraft

Heavenly Father, in the name of your son Jesus, I bind and break all witchcraft, curses, spells, and all powers associated with it.  Through the blood of the lamb, I destroy the works of every witch, warlock, wizard, sorcerer, and all other powers of darkness.

Through the blood of Jesus, I break their powers including the influences of witchcraft, evil powers, spells, hexes, vexes, voodoo, hoodoo, roots, potions, or any such things off me, my family, and all future generations. Christ has redeemed me and my family from the curse of the law that I may receive the blessings of Abraham.

Through the blood of Jesus Christ, I also rebuke, bind up and destroy all the spirit-guides, helps, and shields of these workers of evil, and leave them without any strengths – stripped of their evil powers and influence, in the name of Jesus.

Thank you Father for delivering me.

Amen.

Prayer for Those Involved in Witchcraft

In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I come against every spirit that is not the spirit of God.  I bind the strongman in the name of Jesus.

I come through the blood of the Lord Jesus and in the name of Jesus.  I paralyze you and silence you, forbidding you from influencing or strengthening [them or name the witch or witches if known] in the name of Jesus, right now!

We are destroying your very works: the spirits of hate, bitterness and murder, spirits of wizardry, sorcery and all your co-spirits, your works, your powers, all your influences are destroyed in the name of Jesus!

In the mighty name of Jesus, I paralyze you all right now.  You will not be able to use this soul any longer against [a church and/or a particular person].

I come against the spirit of blindness, binding the spirits of bondage and heaviness, fear and hate and break your power in the name of Jesus.

I pray, Lord, that You will open their eyes so they can see the glory of Jesus.  Open their hearts so that they can hear Your voice.  Break the yokes in their lives and give them liberty in their souls, that they may be free to repent.  Show them every evil work and every evil deed they are guilty of, and Lord Jesus, convict their hearts unto repentance.  Bring these souls out of darkness; save these souls so that You may have the glory.

Satan and all demons, I silence you in the name of Jesus, binding all your interference.  You will not interfere with these souls, and they will have their own free will choice so as to make up their own minds if they want to repent.  They will do it without your interference.

In the name of Jesus, I renounce any self-righteousness, and pridefulness, big pride and little pride, in any area of my life and pray that I may learn by your example to become more humble in my walk with You.

I believe I am saved by the blood of Jesus and Satan has no further legal rights to my spirit, soul, mind or body. Through the blood of Jesus I am justified, just as if I had never sinned.

Jesus you said whoever calls upon the name of the Lord SHALL be delivered. I call upon you now. Deliver me!

In the name of Jesus Christ I bind every evil spirit in or around my life.

In the name of Jesus and by his precious blood, I command you to get out and leave me alone, never to return.  Go in Jesus’ name!  Out in the name of Jesus!

[Now co-operate with the Holy Spirit.  It may help to breathe out and cough.  After expelling breath a few times, some spirits may begin to manifest and be forced to leave. Use your will to force them out and command them to leave in Jesus’ name.  Then praise God for the results and get filled with the Holy Spirit.]

Alternative or Additional Prayer

I affirm that God has seated me with Christ Jesus in the heavenly realms far above all principalities and supernatural powers of darkness.

I now command all wicked spirits to cease their work and be bound in the presence of the Lord Jesus Christ. I also bind all replacer wicked spirits assigned to rebuild evicted strongholds. They may not do that!

I forbid any transference of spirits, dividing, restructuring, or multiplying of wicked spirits working against me, in the name of Jesus.

All powers of darkness having assignment against me must hear and obey God who is their Creator and Conqueror. Lord Jesus Christ, I ask You to tell all of these powers of darkness assigned to rule over me where they must go. Confine them where they can never trouble me again. I yield fully to all of the purposes You have in this battle I have been facing. In Your great name I pray. Amen.

Satan, I rebuke you in Jesus’ Name and I am closing any doors, which my ancestors or I may have opened to you and your demons. I renounce Satan and all his demons; I declare them to be my enemies and I want them out of my life completely.

In the name of Jesus Christ I now claim deliverance from any and all evil spirits, which may be in me. Once and for all I close the door in my life to all occult practices and command all connected and related spirits to leave me now, never to return in the name of Jesus.  Amen.

Prayer to Consecrate Yourself Completely to God

Dear Heavenly Father, I come to you boldly in Jesus’ name.  Take me as I am.  I now give myself – my heart, my mind, my body, my time, talents and treasure to you.  Fill me and possess me with your Holy Spirit.

I renounce sins and self.  Jesus, sanctify me.  Cleanse me, purge me, purify me.  May God’s will be done in my life, on earth as it is in heaven. Let me manifest a faithful spirit, a pure mind and a sickless body to your glory.

Amen.

What is Deliverance?

The Hebrew word used for ‘deliverance; is Peleytah or Peletah = pel-ay-taw – to set free: to take and hand over to or leave for another: to assist in giving birth: to aid in the birth of : to give birth to: to cause oneself to produce as if by giving birth: to send something aimed or guided to an intended target or destination: to come through with: produce: to generate the promised, desired, or expected results: come through with: to give results that are promised, expected, or desired, the act of delivering, freeing, or liberating someone or something: the state of being set-free.

“The Spirit of the Lord is upon me, because he hath anointed me to preach the gospel to the poor; he hath sent me to heal the broken hearted, to preach deliverance to the captives, and recovering of sight to the blind, to set at liberty them that are bruised.”  (Luke 4:18)

To understand what it fully means to be delivered or what deliverance is we must comprehend a few very important facts and they are:

  • What does it mean to be bound?
  • What is binding the bound?
  • How does one become bound?
  • What must be done in order not to be bound?

Bound: to confine, restrain, or restrict as if with bonds, to put under an obligation, to constrain with legal authority, to wrap around with something so as to enclose or cover, to fasten round about, to tie together, to cause to stick together, to take up and hold: combine with, to form a cohesive mass, to hamper free movement or natural action, to become hindered from free operation, to exert a restraining or compelling effect.

“For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.” (Ephesians 6:12)

The Legal Authority the devil has over man that enables him to hold us bound is called a PRINCIPALITY — a powerful ruler, or the rule of someone in authority. The word may refer to human rulers (Titus 3:1, KJV), demonic spirits (Rom. 8:38; Eph. 6:12; Col. 2:15), angels and demons in general (Eph. 3:10; Col. 1:16), or any type of rule other than God Himself (Eph. 1:21; Col. 2:10). The territory or jurisdiction of a prince: the country that gives title to a prince. The devil is the prince of the air (Eph.2: 2). The word title means = ownership, claim, right, it comprises all the elements constituting legal ownership a legally just cause of exclusive possession.

When the devil develops a principality in our minds or our bodies, he produces what is called a STRONGHOLD. Due to strongholds, people are hurting the world over. Children are growing up in a society that has pushed them aside, cast them off, and rejected them as normal, acceptable, and viable members of the social order. They are becoming adults that have no direction in their lives, wondering aimlessly, bound, confused, and perplexed. Many in society are being incarcerated mentally, physically, and spiritually. Although free from the human judicial system, are regretfully imprisoned in a far more cruel and ultimately eternal prison. They are sentenced with a life sentence of emotional emasculation, depression, anxiety, low/no self esteem, and phobias; some are on the habitual death row of deadly narcotics, alcohol, careless, unsafe, and uninhibited sexual activity. Others have been placed in a solitary confinement of physical pain, discomfort, infirmity and disease.

They are being held captive behind these seemingly impenetrable bars and inescapable walls, being made to believe that this is all there is to life. Mentally messed up, emotionally emasculated, and spiritually lost, they are aimlessly wandering through life bound hopelessly waiting to die, imagining that everything will be over if what they have experienced to be life would just cease from being. They are disappointedly unable to see that God has a far more excellent and abundant life. They are struggling trying to break free unable to come into the freedom that is promised to them. They are unable to understand that the price of their freedom has already been paid and all they have to do is come.

Hurt: to affect adversely, to injure, and to feel pain, to become damaged or harmed. Broken: comes from a Hebrew word called SHABAR : it means to crush into pieces, shattered, bruised, violated, not functioning properly, disconnected, overwhelmed with sorrow, raped, plundered, maltreated, desecrated.

The devil has emotionally emasculated the minds of people and placed them in a prison that they feel they will never be released from. They are being held captive and are in need of deliverance. There is an answer for the bound man or woman wandering through this life aimlessly. That is to repent and be baptized in the name of Jesus and filled with the Holy Ghost, for true Deliverance is found by looking into the face of God and asking Him to intercede for me.

The devil, which is a deceiver, uses trickery to fight this battle of Spiritual Warfare, and because man is limited in his thinking he often yields to the temptations of the devil, thus fails in the spiritual war. The devil understands that to gain control of the mind is to ultimately have control of the soul. This is how the devil caused the fall of man in the Garden of Eden, because he deceived Eve in believing something that was not true. This was a deceptive measure that tricked the mind of Eve and placed a stronghold on her and because she did not understand Spiritual Warfare and the tricks of the devil, she yielded to the deception. Mind Control is the Nuclear Weapon that the devil uses in Spiritual Warfare because of the destructive capabilities it has.

“For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of stronghold; casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalteth itself against the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.” (2 Corinthians 10:4-5) Our weapons are not carnal; this simply means that humanistic attempts are futile in spiritual warfare. We cannot defeat the devil with bombs and guns, but the weapons of the word of God will defeat the devil every time. The weapons are mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds.

Contrary to popular belief alcohol, depression, narcotics, or elicit sexually activity; is not what people are bound by; these are only the manifestations of the true bondage and that is the mind. The Bible says in Proverbs 23:7 “For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he”. The devil knows that the way a person thinks is how that person will act. If he can convince a person to believe something untrue then he can cause them to fall and defeat them in this spiritual war. Therefore the alcoholic thinks they need the alcohol in order to make it and are bound because the devil has control of the mind, the drug addict thinks they can’t survive without it and are therefore bound by it because the devil has control of the mind, the sex craved nymphomaniac thinks they will not survive without it and therefore punishes their body because the devil has control of the mind, it’s all bondage of the mind.

The Bibles says in Romans 12:2 “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect will of God”.

What is binding the bound: STRONGHOLDS – “A stronghold is a mind set that is impregnated with hopelessness that causes a person to accept as unchangeable something in their lives even though they know it goes contrary to the will of God”.  We often are not aware of the presence of our strongholds, or the way they operate.

It is within our minds that the devil as bound us into thinking that this is the way a certain situation is supposed to be and there is nothing that can be done about it, he convinces us to believe that something is real even though it is not. When we believe something in our minds it not only alters the way we perceive a certain thing, but how we begin to act and live according to what we believe. As you will recall we said that the devil understands that to gain control of the mind is to ultimately have control of the soul.

If we look at the Children of Israel in the book of Numbers 13:33 “And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.” The devil had a stronghold on their mind that caused them to believe something was unchangeable even though it went contrary to the Will of God. The weapons of this spiritual battle are used against our flesh, but the majority of the fighting is done in the minds of men and women everyday.

How Does One Become Bound: There are three avenues in which a person can become bound, these avenues are in fact the weapons of Spiritual Warfare that the devil uses against us and we become bound because of these weapons if we succumb to them. Let us take a look at the weapons that the devil uses against us in Spiritual Warfare that cause one to be bound. The Bible gives us in detail the weapons that the devil uses to fight against us, in 1st John 2:16 “For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world.” These are the weapons the devil uses against us that if we surrender ourselves to them will become bound by them.

Let us look at these weapons individually that are used in this spiritual warfare. Although the devil comes at us with many different tricks yet there are only three avenues that the devil can attack us in:

  • The Lust of the Flesh
  • The Lust of the Eye
  • The Pride of Life

The Lust of the Flesh

The Bible tells us in 1st Peter 2:11 “Dearly beloved. I beseech you as strangers and pilgrims, abstain for fleshly lusts, which war against the soul.” The lust of the flesh is the desires that the flesh has that are contrary to the will of God. The body, which is flesh, is entirely worldly and is influenced by the worldly system. The body will return to the dust of the earth from whence it came, it cannot enter into the kingdom of God; therefore, its desire is to go totally against the will of God. The devil realizes this and uses the flesh as a stronghold against us in spiritual warfare.

The fleshly desires and works are given to us in Galatians 5:19-20 “Now the works of the flesh are manifest, which are these; Adultery, fornication, uncleanness, lasciviousness, idolatry, witchcraft, hatred, variance, seditions, heresies, envyings, murder, drunkenness, revellings, and such like: of the which I tell you before, as I have told you in time past, that they which do such things shall not inherit the kingdom of God.”

The lust of the flesh is one weapon that the devil uses to fight this war and cause the people to be bound.  The different types of ammunition that used in this one weapon are listed:

“The acts of the flesh are obvious: sexual immorality, impurity and debauchery; idolatry and witchcraft; hatred, discord, jealousy, fits of rage, selfish ambition, dissensions, factions.”  (Galatians 5:19-20)

The Bible says, in 1st Corinthian 6:19 “What? Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own?” The devil knows that our bodies are the temple of the Holy Ghost and he knows what the Bible says, in 1st Corinthians 3:17 “If any man defile the temple of God, him shall God destroy; for the temple of God is holy, which ye are.” The devil knows that to defile the temple will lead to the ultimate destruction by God himself in the lake of fire for all eternity; therefore, he uses the lust of the flesh to war against us in this spiritual war. Our flesh desires all these things that are against the will of God because it is totally worldly. Our minds are being deceived by the devil and it seems pleasing to the flesh and before you know it you have been infiltrated by the lust of the flesh and lost a battle in this spiritual warfare.

” But if I cast out devils by the Spirit of God, then the kingdom of God is come unto you.” (Matthew 12:28)

The Lust of the Eye

This weapon although mention second is used first in spiritual warfare, because in order to lust after something within the flesh you first must see it. This is how down through the Bible the devil caused many people to stumble and fall. This is the first step to bondage. This is how he captured Eve’s attention in the Garden of Eden by appealing to the lust of the eyes first. In Genesis 3:6 the Bible says, “And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.” The devil realizes that if he can cause you to get your eyes fixed on something that the flesh will begin to desire it and the struggle then begins. David had fallen to the tricks of the devil when he looked and saw Bathsheba and his flesh lusted after her, 2nd Samuel 11. When David looked upon Bathsheba with lust in his eye it eventually became lust of the flesh. He realized that he was the King and his pride caused him to believe that because he was King that he should have her. In so doing she became with child. David’s pride and reputation was affected, which worked on his emotions and caused him to act a different way. He conspired against Uriah, Bathsheba’s husband, and caused his death.

Later David understood how the devil will fight and thus wrote, in Psalms 121:1-2 “I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help my help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth.” David realized that if he continues to keep his eyes on the Lord that he would be able to fight in the spiritual war and be victorious in the end. There is an old saying that goes “The eyes are the windows of the soul.” We have often used this saying, as we are able to tell how a person feels on the inside. They may have a smile on their face, but by looking into their eyes you realize that something is wrong. What the devil does is he takes this saying and changes it around a little, “The eyes are the windows to the soul.” He realizes that in order to cause the lust of the flesh he must appeal to the eyes first; therefore, the eyes become a gateway to ultimately gaining access to the soul. Bondage is placed upon us because we committed ourselves to looking at something to the point that the temptation of that became a desire, then that desire became an obsession that we had to have, and the obsession was not going to be satisfied until we possessed that which we first saw. I am now bound because of what I first saw.

The Pride of Life

This is the most dangerous and destructive weapon that the devil can use, because it is all fabricated, executed, and manifested in the mind and the Bible says Proverbs 23:7 “For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he.” The devil knows that the way a person thinks is how that person will act. If he can convince a person to believe something untrue then he can cause them to fall and defeat them in this spiritual war.

Pride is the thing that caused him to rebel against God and ultimately got him cast out of heaven. The pride of life is the existence in a person’s mind that they themselves are of great importance. When the pride of life occurs it leads to destruction. The Bible says in Proverbs 16:18 “Pride goeth before destruction, and an haughty spirit before a fall.” In the Garden of Eden, Eve was attacked with the Pride of Life when in Genesis 3:6 she desired the tree. The Bible says, “And when the woman saw that the tree was good for food, and that it was pleasant to the eyes, and a tree to be desired to make one wise, she took of the fruit thereof, and did eat, and gave also unto her husband with her; and he did eat.”

The pride of life was that she believed she would become wise. Pride made her believe that she would be like a god and that in her mind she herself would be of great importance. Pride caused Lucifer to fall, he in his mind thought he was of great importance; his destruction will be to spend eternity in the lake of fire because he got lifted up in pride.

The devil realizes that pride is the silver bullet of destruction to the heart and mind of men and women. A person that has tremendous pride to the point they feel as though they are of some great importance is headed for destruction soon, for the Bible says pride goeth before destruction. A person becomes bound by yielding to the weapons the devil uses to fight against them in spiritual warfare.

Someone may say I have been this way all my life, I have committed some of the biggest sins you can imagine, I am at the bottom of the barrel, society has abandoned me, friends have forsaken me, family has forgotten me, surely God wouldn’t deliver me. When a person has low self-esteem they often feel that they are worth nothing, their spirit is broken and they feel like what’s the use. However, this is just the type of person God wants, you are at the point that God can truly manifest himself in your life, for the Bible says in Psalms 34:18 “The Lord is nigh unto them that are of a broken heart; and saveth such as be of a contrite spirit.”

If we look at Mark the 5:1-20 we find these verses “And they came over unto the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gadarenes. And when he was come out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit, Who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no man could bind him, no, not with chains: Because that he had been often bound with fetters and chains, and the chains had been plucked asunder by him, and the fetters broken in pieces: neither could any man tame him. And always, night and day, he was in the mountains, and in the tombs, crying, and cutting himself with stones. But when he saw Jesus afar off, he ran and worshipped him, And cried with a loud voice, and said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of the most high God? I adjure thee by God, that thou torment me not. For he said unto him, Come out of the man, thou unclean spirit. And he asked him, What is thy name? And he answered, saying, My name is Legion: for we are many. And he besought him much that he would not send them away out of the country.

Now there was there nigh unto the mountains a great herd of swine feeding. And all the devils besought him, saying, Send us into the swine, that we may enter into them And forthwith Jesus gave them leave. And the unclean spirits went out, and entered into the swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the sea, (they were about two thousand;) and were choked in the sea.  And they that fed the swine fled, and told it in the city, and in the country. And they went out to see what it was that was done. And they come to Jesus, and see him that was possessed with the devil, and had the legion, sitting, and clothed, and in his right mind: and they were afraid. And they that saw it told them how it befell to him that was possessed with the devil, and also concerning the swine. And they began to pray him to depart out of their coasts. And when he was come into the ship, he that had been possessed with the devil prayed him that he might be with him.

Howbeit Jesus suffered him not, but saith unto him, Go home to thy friends, and tell them how great things the Lord hath done for thee, and hath had compassion on thee. And he departed, and began to publish in Decapolis how great things Jesus had done for him: and all men did marvel”. Here was a man that society had literally disowned and abandoned, he was considered the reject of society. He was in a prison of demon possession, which controlled his mind and his action. He was socially shattered, mentally misdiagnosed, physically pushed aside, broken-down, and beaten-up, he was the living dwelling among the dead. The amazing fact of this scripture that we must catch is the Jesus came to Decapolis for no other reason but to deliver this man.

You may be broken-down, beat-up, pushed aside, cast out, but remember this 2nd Corinthians 4:7-12 says “But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body. For we which live are alway delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh. So then death worketh in us, but life in you”.

Acts 2:39 says “For the promise is unto you, and to your children, and to all that are afar off, even as many as the Lord our God shall call”. John 8:36 says “If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed”. John 10:10 says “The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly”. When we are bound by the devil we are not living life abundantly, God wants to deliver you and have your experience life more abundantly.

DELIVERANCE IS FOR YOU!!!!!!!

Being Delivered and Staying Delivered: Being delivered and Staying delivered is not something that is impossible, because the Bible says with God all things are possible; however, the key element in deliverance lays within you the individual.

Strongholds

A stronghold is a mind set that is impregnated with hopelessness that causes a person to accept as unchangeable something in their lives even though they know it goes contrary to the will of God.

To be delivered one must change the way they think Proverbs 23:7 “For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he.” Therefore the alcoholic thinks they need the alcohol in order to make it and are bound because the devil has control of the mind, the drug addict thinks they can’t survive without it and are therefore bound by it because the devil has control of the mind, the sex craved nymphomaniac thinks they will not survive without it and therefore punishes their body because the devil has control of the mind, it’s all bondage of the mind. The Bible says in Romans 12:2 “And be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and perfect, will of God.”

Transform

To change in composition or structure, to change in character or condition, implies a major change in form, nature, or function, to go through a metamorphoses which is an abrupt or startling change induced by a supernatural power, change fitting something for a new or different use or function, a change that exalts or glorifies.

Renew

To make like new, restore to freshness, vigor, or perfection, to make new spiritually, to restore to existence, to make extensive changes in, to do again, to begin again, to become new. It implies a restoration of what had become faded or disintegrated so that it is like new the supplying of something necessary to restore lost strength, vigor, and power.

Faith

Once you change the way you think you do not accept that something is unchangeable because you now believe that God can and will make a difference. You now posses the key element which is FAITH.

FAITH: Hebrews 11:1 says “Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen”. I like this definition of Faith. Faith is standing at the break of darkness and you don’t know if the next step is going to through you off a cliff or not, but faith is knowing that when you take that step that God will either give you something solid to stand on or give you at that time the ability to fly. Faith is being able to believe that God will make a way out of no way.

In The Bible:

“According to your faith” appears 10 times
“By your faith” appears 74 times
The word “faith” appears 339 times

Without faith it is impossible to please God

Faith causes us to believe that a situation is changeable, which cause us to seek a change or transformation, not only in actions, but in our thoughts, which is deliverance from the way things once were, because I am thinking differently now I am acting differently. I have been delivered.

Staying Delivered

1 Corinthians 15:58 “Therefore, my beloved brethren, be ye stedfast, unmoveable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as ye know that your labor is not in vain in the Lord.” Philippians 2:5 “Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus.” Isaiah 26:3 “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on thee: because he trusteth in the”. Trust is a basis of faith, reliance, and hope. Trust is learning how to lean and depend upon Jesus, trust in him and he will provide. That is what Job meant when he said though He slay me yet will I trust Him, If you trust Him He will, not maybe, but he will provide. Staying delivered is trusting in God and keeping your mind on Him.

Never give up, never yield to the temptations of the pride of life, whether it is thinking of yourself as being of some great importance or worthless, never yield to this weapons of spiritual warfare.

Spiritual Warfare

An ongoing battle that we all must learn how to fight in, bondage is the result of this warfare. In the natural war many lives are lost both of the enemy and the ones war was raged against; however, in spiritual warfare we have a guarantee that as long as we do the will of God we will have everlasting life. Isaiah 54:17 says, “No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the Lord, and their righteousness is of me, saith the Lord.”

If we walk in the Spirit and do not fulfill the lust of the flesh, fall victim to the pride of life, and give into the lust of the eye, then we will remain delivered.

“Be not conformed to this world, but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind”. (Romans 12:2)

The Secret Truth of Roman Catholicism

Rarely in all its long and colourful history has the Roman Catholic Church been in such internal disarray as it is today. For centuries the Catholic Church presented to the world a united front. It appeared before men as a powerful monolithic structure, one Church under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.

Beneath the facade, of course, there were differences and power struggles, but the church as a whole gave the appearance of unity and strength. This is not so today. Not only has Rome lost a great deal of its secular power but its very life seems threatened from within.

The following is excerpted from “The Jesuit Vatican New World Order” by Alan Lamont:

Pagan Rome’s Final Solution to the Christian Faith: Subvert and Dominate It

The reason Pagan Rome ‘Christianized’ itself, was because there was one foe which they simply could never conquer. And this was the masses of people in its own Empire who were hearing about Christ and believing THAT story, rather than the false resurrection which Rome held to. And not consequently, the Roman Empire derived its very power from this false mystery religion and false resurrection of Nimrod or Osiris.

As the Roman Caesar was the ‘head’ of these mystery religions, and as such could and did dictate the doctrine and dogma of its believers, e.g. control of their lives in every way, shape or form. And because the Roman Caesar was ‘lord’ of this religion, he held the title of Pontifex Maximus, which means ‘chief bridge-builder to the netherworld.’ And as such demanded he be worshipped as god! Any who would not bow before Caesar and call him ‘lord’, would be imprisoned, tortured or put to death. They would be known as ‘heretics’ and as enemies of the Empire, and called subversive elements.

But they could not stop the spreading of this ‘other resurrection’ which was spreading like wildfire throughout the Empire, called ‘Christianity’ or ‘The Way.’ And for about 360 years tried to stomp it out by persecuting the Christians and putting them to death en mass by way of inquisition. Yet with each and every new wave of inquisitions, Christianity would then double, triple and quadruple.

They would kill 300,000 Christians in a single swoop, and not just Christians, but any who dared not follow the false gods. And when they killed 300,000 people, 600,000 or 900,000 would then pop up in their place. They found themselves in a no-win situation. As a matter of fact, they found themselves in a losing battle where one day they would lose their Empire, and the Christians would one day win, and rule this empire if for nothing else than their sheer numbers. The Roman Inquisitions all through the Empire was akin to throwing gas on an already hot and burning fire.

So what did they do to fix this situation? Nothing at first. For none of the Roman Caesars or Emperors had enough wisdom to handle the issue, yet. But then one day a man named Constantine was crowned Pontifex Maximus or Caesar. And he had the solution and the wisdom to deal with this issue. At first, he tried as his successors did to kill, pillage and burn Christians. Until one day when it dawned upon him, and he “saw the darkness”, viz. a play of the words of seeing the Light.

He saw that it would advantageous to simply fake his own ‘conversion.’ And he did so in 312AD. He claimed to have had a ‘vision’ whereby he saw a giant cross in the sky, and he now became a ‘Christian’.  It was here where Constantine started the co-opting of Christianity. He ordered the Empire to become ‘Christian’ as he had become and ‘saw the light’, viz. darkness.

In the Vatican the Pope literally speaks from the mouth of a serpent

The word “Vatican” literally means “Divining Serpent” and is derived from Vatis = Diviner and Can = Serpent. Vatican City and St. Peter’s Basilica were built on the ancient pagan site called in Latin vaticanus mons or vaticanus collis, which means hill or mountain of prophecy.

The following is excerpted from “The Crucifixion of Truth” by Tony Bushby:

John Paul II 1978- 2005

In the early 1940`s, the I.G. Farben Chemical Company employed a Polish salesman who sold cyanide to the Nazis for use in Auschwitz. The same salesman also worked as a chemist in the manufacture of the poison gas. This same cyanide gas along with Zyklon B and malathion was used to exterminate millions of Jews and other groups. Their bodies were then burned to ashes in the ovens. After the war the salesman, fearing for his life, joined the Catholic Church and was ordained a priest in 1946.

One of his closest friends was Dr. Wolf Szmuness, the mastermind behind the November 1978 to October 1979 and March 1980 to October 1981 experimental hepatitis B vaccine trials conducted by the Center for Disease Control in New York, San Francisco and four other American cities that loosed the plague of AIDS upon the American people. The salesman was ordained Poland`s youngest bishop in 1958.

His predecessor was assassinated after a 30 day reign and our ex-cyanide gas salesman assumed the papacy as POPE JOHN PAUL II. William Cooper, BEHOLD A PALE HORSE, (Light Technology Publishing, 1991), pp.89-90

Pope John Paul II: Zyklon B Salesman 

In his book ‘Behold a Pale Horse,’ former US Naval Intelligence Officer William Cooper (who was famously shot and murdered by police outside his own house on 5 November 2001) relates a story associated with the IG Farben Chemical Company.

In the early 1940s, that company employed a Polish chemist and salesman who sold cyanide gas, Zyklon B and Malathion to the Nazis for extermination of groups of people in Auschwitz.

After the war the salesman joined the Catholic church and was ordained a priest. In 1958 he became Poland’s youngest bishop and after Pope John Paul I’s mysterious death, the ex-cyanide gas salesman Karol Wojtyla was elected to the papacy as Pope John Paul II in October 1978.

In March 2000, he publicly apologized not for his war effort, but for the wickedness of the Christian religion. The plea for forgiveness also sought to pardon the use of ‘violence in the service of truth,’ an often used fragile and troubling reference to the Inquisition.

The apology read by the Pope was the result of four years of work by a panel of 28 theologians and scholars and was by far the most sweeping act by a leader of a major religion. On few occasions only have ecclesiastical authorities ever acknowledged the faults or abuses of which they themselves were guilty. There was concern that the apology was a major theological miscalculation that could undermine the Pope’s weakening authority and the unanswered question posed by the international media was: “In whose name was the Pope asking for forgiveness?”

Prayer of Release from the Occult and False Religion

Lord, I confess seeking from Satan the help that should only come from God.  I confess occultism and false religions as sin.  I repent and renounce these sins and ask you to forgive me, in the name of Jesus.  I renounce Satan, his works and his demons, and count them my enemies.  I close the door on occult practices, and I command any associated spirits to leave me now in the mighty name of Jesus.

Father please forgive me for all indulgences in the occult, both for what I myself did, and my family.  I renounce it and cover myself with the blood of Jesus.

In the name of Jesus, I renounce, break and loose myself and my family from all psychic powers, bondages, and bonds of physical and mental illness, upon me and my family line, as the results of parents and other ancestors.

I renounce, break and loose myself from demonic subjection to any members of my family, ancestors, descendants, and any other human beings, living and dead, who have had spiritual influence over me. I ask you to forgive and bless them, especially with salvation.

I ask that you would forgive me for participating in occult and false religion and spiritual adultery. I forgive those who have cursed me.  Please forgive me for cursing others. I break any curses and demonic soul ties including psychic and Catholic prayers.

Lord, I ask for forgiveness for keeping cursed objects and demon infestation in my possessions and my home and property.  I will clean out my house of any cursed objects.  I will anoint my house with oil.

I renounce all fortune telling, all magic practices and spiritism, cults and false teachings, and any form of Satan worship, in the name of Jesus.

I break any and all curses and soul ties brought about by psychic heredity, occult contacts and religious cults.

In the name of Jesus Christ, I break the power of any and all demonic holds on my family line due to supernatural experiences apart from God including the following forbidden practices:

Prayer of Release from Hermes / Hermaneutics

I renounce and break every effect over my life of the philosophies of Aristotle, Socrates, Plato, Pythagoras, and all other Greek philosophers.  Break every tie to them through those who have been in authority over my life. in the name of Jesus.

I renounce and break the negative effect of their teachings that are contrary to Scripture, in the name of Jesus.

I repent of being taught the Word of God hermeneutically and listening to the voice of Hermes.

I renounce and break every effect of Hermeneutics as a method of studying the Word of God.

I repent of making a god of logic and reason and thereby grieving the Holy Ghost.

I renounce and break the voice of Hermes from off my life, mind and spirit, in the name of Jesus.

I take authority over the spirit of Hermes in my life.  I bind the spirit of Hermes and I rebuke and command you to go in the name of Jesus.

Heavenly Father, I ask you to cleanse me of every effect of this spirit in the name of Jesus.  I ask you to cleanse my mind from thinking hermeneutically.

I renounce and break every effect of Hermes the god of hermits and Hermes the god of boundaries.

I declare that I am no longer a hermit.  I break off my life every effect of living in an invisible bubble or spiritual cave.  I renounce the isolation.  I break off my life every spiritual neon sign that says ‘keep away’, in the name of Jesus.

I renounce the rejection that is the fruit of Hermes the hermit in my generational line.  I break this rejection off my life.  Father I ask that the Holy Ghost will lift off all the pain that comes with rejection and isolation, in the name of Jesus.

Where the spirit of Hermes and rejection has found access through the ten generation curse of bastardry I take account of this curse.

In the name of Jesus, I release myself from all exclusion from the house of the Lord.

I repent of all escapism through sleep and renounce Hermes the god of sleep.  I break this spirit off my life and command it to leave in the name of Jesus.

Thank you Father, for delivering me.

Amen.
