IF YOU HAVE UNHEALED SOUL WOUNDS YOU WILL MANIFEST When we grow up we all get hurt in a myriad of ways, but some get hurt more than others. We get emotionally hurt from words spoken to us that are mean and harsh or condemning. We also get hurt by actions, and physical and sexual abuse. Many of us get hurt by our own parent, siblings, relatives, neighbors, teachers, pastors, etc. We also get hurt if we are exposed to porn, sexually touched or exposed, molested or raped. Once we have been hurt we have the choice of truly forgiving that person from our hearts like Jesus did and behaving like Christ. Or we can be angry and bitter towards the person who hurt us and not forgive them in our hearts. Forgiveness does not require allowing your abuser to stay in your life. But if we do not forgive a person from our heart then demons will have legal rights to torment our mind with their thoughts causing us to trigger on other people and current relationships. We trigger by getting mad and angry, and overreacting to situations or going quiet for hours or days. Demons play a large…


HOW EFFECTIVE IS YOUR CHURCH’S DELIVERANCE MINISTRY? Not every church who offers deliverance is run by a person who is delivered themselves. Often you will see those who are prideful try to take charge of it. Sometimes you will see people who are into witchcraft who will try to run it and then hurt people more. And often you will see people who don’t understand how deliverance works thinking you have to yell and scream the demons out of people, or thinking they have to vomit to be delivered or trying to override people’s freewills and not addressing the need to get their soul wounds healed and forgiving those who hurt them and repenting for their pride and sin. A true godly deliverance ministry will always have the person in charge of it living a godly lifestyle of sexual purity, fruit of the spirit and have much humility like Christ. If you attend a church whose leadership don’t believe a Christian can be affected by demons and don’t need deliverance you need to run! They are wrong, unbiblical and will lead you away from what Jesus did and allow sin to stay in your life and excuse it instead of…


COMPLAINING GIVES LEGAL RIGHTS TO DEMONS TO ATTACK YOU Demons want you to complain about your negative circumstances as much as possible. They want you to go on and on about how you are suffering and are being abused or have endured pain because it brings joy to them that you are being negatively affected. Remember how much the Israelites complained when they were in the desert instead of having a heart of gratitude that they were no longer slaves? God decided to finally have them all die (except for Joshua and Caleb) in the desert because He was tired of hearing them complain. Have you ever been around a person who complains? It takes the life from you as you normally come down to their level and eventually it wears on you as you have to feel their pain and anguish and you can’t stay positive anymore or encouraging or lift them up. You have to feel horrible with them and languish together in sympathy. You take on the “poor me” attitude that they have. Then the demons are so pleased because now you are on their territory and you are both complaining about how you have been done…


NOT EVERY MARRIAGE WAS ORDAINED BY GOD Think about it.  Most marriages happen when a young man and woman are first physically attracted to one another.  Then they date for a period of time to see if they are compatible with one another.  If one person is very controlling, lies, cheats on them, emotionally abuses or worse, or has no godly fruit while the other person wants to live for God then often times they don’t follow through with the wedding.  Often times one of the parties says they are a Christian, acts nice to them as much as they are able to muster during the dating process but ultimately has no intention in their heart of living a godly lifestyle and simply wants their future spouse to provide for their financial or physical needs, give them sex when they want it,  yet will treat them like a slave with consistent emotional abuse, putting them down with a cutting tongue and possibly worse during the marriage.  Does that sound like a potential marriage ordained by God? Of course not.  Yet millions of marriages are consummated under false pretense. So what happens if you had every intention of serving God in…


HOW MANY OF YOUR THOUGHTS ARE FROM DEMONS? We get our thoughts from three places. Ourselves, the Lord or Holy Spirit and demons. In 2005, the National Science Foundation published an article summarizing research on human thoughts per day. It was found that the average person has about 12,000 to 60,000 thoughts per day. Of those thousands of thoughts, 80% were negative, and 95% were exactly the same repetitive thoughts as the day before. So if you hear a lot of thoughts that cause you to be angry, fearful, anxious, jealous, bitter, behave sexually perverse, condemn you, depressed, suicidal then you can count on them being from demons. Demons will give you thoughts like “Just drive your car into those trees and your problems will be over”, “Your husband (or wife) are all your problems and if they would only agree with you then you would be fine,” and “All your decisions are the best so don’t listen to your husband (or wife) and make sure everyone does what you decide.” Demons will cause people who were hurt by a parent or sexually violated to feel like they are still a victim as an adult and when they trigger on…


THE IMPORTANCE OF MARRYING A DELIVERED BELIEVER It is common for couples to date for several months to a year and then within 3 weeks of getting married one of them changes dramatically. One of them becomes very controlling, jealous of others, demanding, prideful and sneaks around behaving in ways they don’t want their spouse to know what they are doing. It’s like the spouse’s personality changed once they had you committed to marriage. So what happened? What happened was the spouse who dramatically changed to the worse had an alternate personality which they hid until they officially had you committed to marriage to them. They had prior soul wounds from childhood which were never healed that allowed demons to attach to them giving them many thoughts to which they trigger if you look or sound like a person or situation from their past that hurt them. The spouse could be Spirit filled and pray in tongues and prophesy but if they still have not forgiven all who hurt them from their hearts and asked God to take their pride from them and repented for their sin and got delivered from the demons that attached to their soul then they…


God is always for us but there are times when what He wants us to accomplish does not line up with what we want.  I have seen several times in my own personal life where the Lord led me into relationships with people who were going to do things that hurt me greatly.  One was a man who acted like he was a wealthy businessman who got people together (including pastors and church leaders) indicating that he was going to build a multi-million dollar ministry center complete with a private jet.   He said he needed people to help him in leading the ministry in various positions.  After leading people on for several months we eventually discovered that he lied about the whole ordeal and he had no money whatsoever and made up that he had hundreds of home churches in Indianapolis, St. Louis and Dallas.  After he was exposed as a liar I asked the Lord why He didn’t warn me so I didn’t waste my time with him.  God told me that it was a teaching experience to learn that not everyone is honest and some would go to great extents to appear to be godly but only to…


EMOTIONAL ABUSE IS THE SILENT KILLER OF MARRIAGES IN THE CHURCH No one wants to address the 800 lb gorilla in every church in the world. Satan wants to force people to stay in marriages where one person is the abuser and the other person is their victim behind closed doors. The church sadly is filled with many religious people controlled by demons screaming that “God hates divorce” in order to keep the abused victims chained to their abusers for life until they die unable to do much of anything for Christ yet they stay silent on “God hates abuse in marriage which causes divorce.” So those who are controlling, manipulative, coercive, prideful, evil, demanding and destructive get away with slowly killing their spouse by tormenting them into sickness and disease through constant emotional abuse over years resulting in their victim’s hair loss, weight gain or loss, depression, suicidal thoughts, and lack of any true sexual intimacy often developing into sexual abuse. There are many men and women who demand their spouse obey them like a slave behind closed doors instead of loving them like Christ while acting like they are such a loving and doting spouse in front of…


AN AUTHENTIC CHRISTIAN HAS FRUIT LIKE CHRIST The Americanized church tells us that all you have to do to be saved and go to heaven is to say the prayer to ask Jesus into your heart without going through the process of forgiveness to those who sinned against you and deliverance from your own pride and sin. Interestingly even Wikipedia states: In religion and theology, salvation generally refers to the deliverance of the soul from sin and its consequences. The truth is that when we make a decision to become a Christian like Jesus then we need to actually end up having similar fruit like Jesus had. Of course if we die the day after we decide to serve Christ then we don’t really have time to show our fruit just like the thief on the cross next to Jesus. But for everyone else who has been attending church for years our fruit of our lives should be closely aligned with Jesus if we are authentic Christians, understanding it’s a process of sanctification. In order to have similar fruit to Jesus in our lives we need to do what Jesus did and that is to forgive everyone who ever sinned…


We have all been hurt by people in our lives. We have been controlled, betrayed, lied & gossiped about, and many of us have been emotionally abused and some physically or sexually abused. God requires that everyone forgive those who have sinned against them in order to have their own sins forgiven by Him. “For if you forgive men their sins, your Heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men their sins, neither will your Father forgive your sins.” ‭‭Matthew‬ ‭6:14-15‬ ‭ So does that mean that every relationship should be restored if the person who hurt you doesn’t own their bad behavior and change and still remains unhealthy or emotionally abusive? Did Jesus want to stay in relationship with everyone? He absolutely did not want to stay in close relationship with the Pharisees and scribes. Matthew 10:34-39 Christ Brings Division 34 “Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword. 35 For I have come to set a man against his father, a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law’; 36 and a man’s enemies will be those of…
