Ministry of Deliverance and KNOWLEDGE


 

Knowledge is defined as: "facts, information, and skills acquired by a person through experience or education; the theoretical or practical understanding of a subject."

Many people have biblical knowledge, facts concerning, how the bible was canonized, total number of verses, chapters, or even Old Testament Theology and New Testament principles.  

In 2 Timothy There is a verse that speaks to knowledge and never being able to apply this knowledge,

2 Timothy 3:7  Ever learning, and never able to come to the knowledge of the truth
 

Deliverance is not just freedom from penalty of sin, but from every aspect of the Devil's yoke.  Freedom and captivity are words that takes on special meanings to the children of God. 

As many of you have received freedom from oppression of the enemy, he will seek to bring you back into capativity of the same vices and sins of the past.  

Fact:  Satan and his demons will leave for a short season, but at sometime they will come back to see if their house (you) is full or empty.

With this knowlege you can insure that when he comes to bring you back into captavity, you have filled up your house by, filling it with prayers, good thoughts, kind works, Godly praise and uplifting music, conversations that magnify Jesus.

If you neglect this advice or knowledge, ponder the following scripture:

Isa 5:13  Therefore my people are gone into captivity, because they have no knowledge: and their honourable men are famished, and their multitude dried up with thirst. 

Hos 4:6  My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children. 

Moreover, many people neglect the ministry of deliverance or doesn't fully understand the ministry.  (see the above scriptures again)

Ministers of the gospel and leaders should look again to the sheep that God has given them and ask the questions, why are so many sick, weak, improverished, on drugs, in secret sins, mentally tormented, and living defeated lives?

Fact:  My people are gone into captivity and are destroyed because of the lack of knowledge - GOD

When the ministry of Deliverance and the casting out of demons again becomes knowledge and experienced by churches again, then and only then can God's people emerge as the Warriors that God declares in his word. 

To follow up and gain knowlege, get your copy of Dr. James Fent's book, "Breaking Chains of Darkness"

With the knowlege gained by reading Breaking Chains of Darkeness, You and your family will never be the same!

Jesus is the Answer,

Pastor Henry Shaffer

DR. JEKYLL & MR. HYDE

A DEMONIC SPIRIT

 

Most everyone has heard of the book about Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde written by Robert Lewis Stevenson. The story offers the theme of divided self in a very literal way. Dr. Jekyll was conflicted by his moral values. He recognized his inner desire for scandalous behavior, but in the rigid community of Victorian England these behaviors would have been unacceptable.

This supernatural representation presents interesting interpretations about the alternative personalities we often encounter in deliverance. As deliverance ministers, we must recognize that Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde represent a demonic spirit.

You may know someone with such a spirit.

The spirit of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde is frequently overlooked during deliverance, yet it is a devastating spirit that greatly affects one’s behavior. It consists of two alter egos.

A person with a Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde spirit is marked by dual personalities; one aspect is good and the other bad. The person is usually good for long periods of time and then he allows Mr. Hyde to take over and his behavior becomes evil.

Jekyll and Hyde represent a man who is at war with himself.

A person with this spirit will alternate between being kind and generous to becoming controlling and verbally abusive and no one knows what sets him off. He usually displays a quick and sometimes violent temper. Often times the immediate family are the only ones to witness and/or experience his alternative personalities.

The “symptoms” of someone with this spirit include: fear of abandonment, unstable self-image & insecurity, fear of failure (often found in successful people who fear losing everything), feelings of emptiness, and explosive anger.

An extreme case of this spirit would be Adolf Hitler who had had two contrasting personalities. One was gentle, positive and encouraging. The other personality was mean, controlling and destructive.

If at any time during deliverance you suspect a split personality be sure and confront the Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde Spirit.

A short time ago we were taking someone through deliverance knowing there were spirits of anger, temper, verbal abuse, fear, insecurity, etc. During the interview process, the spirit spoke through this person and said, “I act just like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde”. This was only the second time I had encountered this spirit, but now realize this spirit is often the cause of many other negative personality traits.

During the actual deliverance when commanding this spirit to leave it said; “One of us is good, can’t we stay”? Nice try devil! Of course not, they are one spirit with two personalities.

The purpose of this blog is to inform others of this demonic spirit as we continually learn more about the spiritual realm.

What Do You Put Your Faith In?


What Do You Put Your Faith In?

 

     As born-again believers in this age that we live in, it can sometimes be a little to easy to lose sight of the miracle-working power of God! The world we live in is so fast-paced and filled with so many conveniences (and I thank God for it) that we become complacent in our faith.  I believe that this is the master plan of the devil.  If he can have us to doubt God, he can then also have us ultimately turning on God without even realizing what we have done.

      The Bible declares that in the fifth chapter of the Gospel of John, 5"Now a certain man was there who had an infirmity thirty-eight years. 6 When Jesus saw him lying there and knew that he already had been in that condition a long time, He said to him, “Do you want to be made well?7 The sick man answered Him, “Sir, I have no man to put me into the pool when the water is stirred up; but while I am coming, another steps down before me.”8 Jesus said to him, “Rise, take up your bed and walk.” 9 And immediately the man was made well, took up his bed, and walked."

      What we see in the story is that the man almost had faith in God. We see he had his faith in an angel that could “trouble” the water, and he had his faith in man whom could place them in the water.   However, we see that when he finally was able to meet Jesus all he had to do was take the word of Jesus in verse eight, and he took up his bed and he walked!  

     Jesus says in the eleventh chapter and the twenty-sixth verse of the gospel of Mark, “For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says. Therefore I say to you, whatever things you ask when you pray, believe that you receive them, and you will have them.” 

     All it takes is faith!  When we place our faith solely upon Jesus, then all things truly are possible!  That’s where deliverance plays a crucial role in the spiritual health of a Christian. When the things that are tormenting you are removed, doubt and unbelief included, then and only then can you begin to walk in the freedom that God alone can give through our savior and master Jesus Christ!  Always remember, Jesus would not have died for your freedom from all sickness, diseases, heartaches if He didn’t think you were worth it!  Anyway, I hope this encourages you in your walk with the Lord as it’s just one man's opinion. 

 

God Bless You,

Gifts of The Spirit


 

 

"The Gifts of The Spirit Are No Longer In Operation????"

 

       So often today, so many believers fall for the lies of the devil.  Seemingly, one of the most common lies the devil has convinced the church of is that the church has no power!  However true as this may be in most churches today, the power never left the church!  The church has lost sight of the "power", we see in Acts 1:8 that Jesus told the disciples,  "But, you will receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you."   What was this "power"? It was the baptism of the Holy Spirit with the evidence of speaking in tongues!  This is the initial sign of the indwelling of the Holy Spirit as referenced in Acts 2, 10, 19, etc.

 

       So what are the "gifts of the Spirit" and where do I find them?  I'm glad you asked!  They are in 1 Corinthians chapter 12, and surprisingly when we attended a "dead" church, we never heard about these.  So here we go, interpretation of tongues, tongues, discerning of spirits, prophesy, miracles, healing, faith, knowledge, and wisdom.

       Surely the church believes in tongues, interpretation and discerning of spirits.... right? How about prophecy, miracles, healing?  Aren't these all in your Bible?  What about faith? Knowledge? Wisdom??  I'm not sure about you, but I don't want to be at a church that believes these "gifts" were just for the apostles, that means they don't believe in faith, knowledge or even wisdom.... and it seems to be more and more evident with every passing year! 

       If you are part of a church that does not believe in the whole Bible, you should find the most convenient exit and run as fast as you can, to a church that believes that Jesus DID transfer to us the power and authority over ALL power of the enemy.  Luke 10:19

THE SOVEREIGNTY OF GOD


THE SOVEREIGNTY OF GOD

Image result for set free

 

Everything going on around us in the world today is a distraction that seems to contradict the sovereignty and purpose of almighty God.

Global conflicts, oppressive government regimes, massive suffering, and the dominance of evil readily create doubts regarding whether or not God is in control.

The absence of any moral conviction in our society and the prominence of materialistic self-serving values can cause us to wonder if the gospel is real. Is it truly capable of bringing change that affirms the power of God and the redemption assured by Christ’s death?

We often ask: Why am I confronted with constant conflict, criticism, and stress caused by situations and those who seem to have no respect for Christian principles?

The answer is because we live in a rebellious world in which not only individuals but nations and cultures have rejected the Lordship of Jesus Christ.

But let me assure you, God has established His throne in the heavens and anointed His Son with all power and authority; He sees all that is happening. And one day God will be exalted among the nations.

Some time ago when I was going through challenges of public criticism and trials, I received these words of encouragement: “Keep your eyes on the One who sits on the throne, And remember your attitude is more important than circumstances.

Regardless of how badly people behave, our battle is not against flesh and blood; but against principalities, powers, and rulers of darkness. The devil does not play fair and he will use any means possible to gain a foot-hold in your life. Anything from addictions, fear, anxiety, rejection, rebellion, anger, pride, insecurity, and the list almost never ends.

But the point is: God is still on the throne and no matter what is going on in the world today or how the devil attacks us individually, God has the answer.

So what’s the answer:

First, it is a personal relationship with Jesus Christ (not just saying I am a Christian, but being able to say I am a born again believer in Jesus Christ and I put my trust in Him.)

Secondly, God has provided a way to set us free and it is called deliverance

(casting out demons).
