Healing Self Image
"I often feel insignificant." Excellent.
Our view, our perspective needs to be through God's eye glasses, not ours. We ARE significant in His eyes.
Our true significance is always based on His strength in us, not our strength in ourselves.
We always need to rely on Him first and foremost, and in that wisdom we begin to act.
There are numerous stories of missionaries who begin daily in fear and trembling, but are then overtaken by God's anointing/power/strength/wisdom. Likewise, we in awe/respect/trust need to do the same. As we take toddler spiritual steps we build spiritual muscle; daily it takes both time and persistence. Our spiritual enemies/vultures/predators would have us quit, isolate ourselves, and have a pity party - unprotected/alone where they can terrorize/control/victimize us.
Do NOT be conned by those liars/bullies/jerks/losers/tricksters.
The Lord would have us see ourselves as He sees us. Actually, it is a sin for us not perceive ourselves as the Lord does. This sin may cause autoimmune diseases, those illnesses where our bodies attack ourselves. Antibodies attack us instead of the enemy. We will always walk with a limp in our spiritual life until the forgiving and loving thoughts of God toward us live in our heart instead of only in our mind.
When we believe anything contrary to what God believes, then we are believing a lie, most likely a lie/ deception of Satan. If our real identity does not agree/line up with what Christ/God says about us in scripture, then it must be discarded/buried with Christ and traded for His truth/thoughts. One major stumbling block is our feelings. Many of us believe/agree with our feelings. Real truth is only what God/ Christ says in scripture. Ask to borrow God's eye glasses!
2nd, many of our thoughts are not from us.
1/3 are from Satan. 1/3 are from God. 1/3 are from self.
Always filter each negative thought. Put it under God's microscope. If it does not agree with God's heart, then reject it. Scripture says to capture each thought and to bring each thought into alignment with God, the same way we would take a car in for an alignment; our ride in life will be much smoother. 2nd Corinthians 10:4-5 The weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strong holds, casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ.
3rd, our deeds are not us. Our sins can be repented of, forgiven, and separated from us. Therefore what was done to us or what we did can be separated from us. What God forgives, he does not accuse us of. The accuser is Satan and Satan is a liar. Like a sponge, Jesus absorbed all our sins when we confessed them. When the accuser comes, tell him, "In the name of Jesus, go away." In all likelihood, Satan missed his chance to repent and is jealous of you who did repent. This messing around with you may be an attempt at revenge towards God. For Satan to waste his time with you, means that you are extremely valuable to God. When the enemy comes again, do not succumb; rather laugh. Know that you are wise to the tactics of the enemy.
Have we asked Jesus Christ for forgiveness?
forgive me. Thank You, Lord.
Have we forgiven God? Lord I forgive you.
Have we forgiven all those others who (when mentioned) cause us to bristle? I forgive _____ now.
Have we forgiven ourselves? Lord, I forgive myself, because You have already forgiven me.
Have we asked Jesus to be our Lord and King? Lord, please now, today, be my Lord and King.
Have we asked Jesus to baptize us with His Holy Spirit? Jesus, I ask You to baptize me now with Your Holy Spirit. Thank You. I believe; I receive, based on Your word in scripture, and not based on what I feel or think.
Do we read our Bible? I will obtain a Bible and read it a lot for the rest of my life.
Scripture admonishes us to be dead to self. WHY? It is the self that gets wounded. It is the self where Satin is often able to get a toe or foothold into our lives. We do not need to protect self. That is God's job. We need to be dead to self and alive to God. Then we are dead to Satan and his tricks. Satan basically tricks our 5 senses. That is one reason why fasting is such a great spiritual tool. So good in fact that even those in the occult use it - against us. A dead man, that is dead to self (flesh or hurt feelings), cannot say ouch, according to God.
These are some Bible passages I will meditate on in order
to help Your word God go from my eyes and mind into my heart:
GENESIS 1:26 NKJV 26God
said, "Let Us (Trinity/Father/Jesus

too strong for me. They prevented me in the day of my calamity,

PSALM 44:15-16 My dishonor is continually before me, and the shame of my face has covered me, because of the voice of him who reproaches and reviles, because of the enemy and the avenger. (Spiritual insight = the voice is that of Satin, our enemy.)
PSALM 139:13-18 NIV - 13"You knit me together in my mother's womb.
14I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Your works are wonderful, I know full well. 15My frame was not hidden from You when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth,
16Your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in Your book before one of them came to be.
17How precious to me are Your thoughts, O God! How vast is the sum of them! 18Were I to count them, they would outnumber the grains of sand. When I awake, I am still with You."

As I have sworn that the waters of Noah should no more go over the earth, so have I sworn that I would NOT be angry with you, nor rebuke you. The mountains shall depart and the hills be removed, but My kindness shall not depart from you. Neither shall the covenant of My peace be removed," says the Lord that has mercy on you.
ISAIAH 55:8-9 NIV - "My thoughts are not your thoughts. Neither are your ways my ways," declares the Lord.

4But when He answered, Jesus said, "It has been written (in Deuteronomy 8:3 Torah)
'Man will not live on bread alone, but upon every word going out through the mouth of God.'"
MATTHEW 25:34-40 The King will say to those on His right, "Come, you who are blessed by My Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave Me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited Me in, I needed clothes and you clothed Me, I was sick and you looked after Me."
Then the righteous will answer Him, "Lord, when did we see You hungry and feed You, or thirsty and give You something to drink? When did we see You a strange and invite You in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see You sick or in prison and go to visit You?" The King will reply, "I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of Mine, you did for Me."

husband's will, but born of God. The Word became flesh and made His

who are called to belong to Jesus Christ.
ROMANS 8:1-4 - There is now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus, because through Christ Jesus the law of the Spirit of life set me free from the law of sin and death. What the law was powerless to do, in that it was weakened by the sinful nature, God did by sending His won Son in the likeness of sinful man to be a sin offering. He condemned sin in the sinful man, in order that the righteous requirements of the law might be fully met in us, who do not live according to the sinful nature but according to the Spirit.
ROMANS 8:10 - If Christ is in you, your body is dead because of sin, yet your spirit is alive because of (God's) righteousness (in you).

1st CORINTHIANS 1:27-31 NIV - God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise. God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong. He chose the lowly things of this world and the despised things, the things that are not, to nullify the things that are, so that no one may boast before Him. It is because of Him (God) that you are in Christ Jesus, Who has become for us wisdom from God, that is, our righteousness, holiness, and redemption. Therefore, as it is written: "Let him who boasts boast in the Lord."
1st CORINTHIANS 2:16
2nd CORINTHIANS 1:21-22 He Who establishes us with you in Christ and has anointed us is God, Who also has sealed us and given us the Spirit in our hearts as a guarantee.

2nd CORINTHIANS 5:21

but Christ lives in me. The life I lie in the body,
I live by faith in the
Son of God, Who loved me and gave Himself for me.

GALATIANS 4:4-5 KJVer - When the fullness of time was come, God sent forth His Son (made of a woman, made under the law) to redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the adoption of (as) sons.
GALATIANS 4:6-7 NIV - Because you are sons, God sent the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, the Spirit Who calls out, "Abba, Father." So you are no longer a slave, but a son; and since you are a son, God had made you also an heir.
EPHESIANS 1:2-14 Grace and peace to
you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
Praise be to the God
and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Who has blessed us in the
with every spiritual blessing in Christ. For
He chose us in Him before the creation of the world
to be holy and blameless
in His sight. In love He predestined us to be adopted as His sons through
Jesus Christ, in accordance with His pleasure and will - to the praise of His
which He has freely given us in the One He loves. In Him
we have redemption through His blood,
the forgiveness of sins, in
accordance with the riches of God's grace that He lavished on us with all
and under-standing. And He made known to us the mystery of His will
according to His good
pleasure, which He purposed in Christ, to be put into
effect when the times will have reached their
fulfillment - to bring all things
in heaven and on earth together under one head, even Christ.
In Him we were also chosen, having been predestined according to the plan of Him Who works out everything in conformity with the purpose of His will, in order that we, who were the first to hope in Christ, might be for the praise of His glory. And you also were included in Christ when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation. Having believed, you were marked in Him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit, Who is a deposit guaranteeing our inheritance until the redemption of those who are God's possession - to the praise of His glory.
EPHESIANS 1:8-23 NIV - I pray also that the eyes of your heart may be enlightened in order that you may know the hope to which He has called you, the riches of His glorious inheritance in the saints, and His incomparably great power for us who believe. That power is like the working of His mighty strength which He exerted in Christ when He raised Him from the dead and seated Him at His right hand in the heavenly realms, far above all rule and authority, power, dominion, and every title that can be given, not only in the present age but also in the one to come. God placed all things under His feet and appointed Him to be head over everything for the church, which is His body, the fullness of Him Who fills everything in every way. (Spiritual insight = When we become blood relatives of Jesus/God we have all the spiritual powers of the family business = healing, raising the dead, miracles, etc.)
EPHESIANS 2:19 KJV - You are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens with the saints, and of the household of God.

you, which was also in Christ Jesus, Who,
being in the form of God, thought it
not robbery to be equal with God, but made Himself
of no reputation.
PHILIPPIANS 3:20-21 KJV - Our citizenship is in heaven, where we also eagerly wait for the Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, Who will transform our lowly body, that it may be conformed to His glorious body, according to the working by which He is able even to subdue all things to Himself.
PHILIPPIANS 4:13 - I can do all things through Christ Who strengthens me.
COLOSSIANS 1:12-13,22 - 12Thanks to the
Father, Who has qualified you (me) to share in the inheritance of the saints
in the kingdom of light. 13Who
rescued us from the authority of the darkness and transferred us to the kingdom
of the Son by His love.
22Now He has reconciled you by Christ's physical
body through death (on the cross) to present you holy
in His sight, without blemish and free from accusation - if you continue in
COLOSSIANS 2:15 TPNT - God disarmed the principalities and the authorities. He made them an example, exposing them publicly, when He triumphed over them through Him, Messiah.
HEBREWS 10:1-18 - The (Jewish) law is only a shadow of the good things that are coming - not the realities themselves. For this reason it can never, by the same (animal) sacrifices repeated endlessly year after year, make perfect those who draw near to worship. If it could, would they not have stopped being offered? Worshipers would have been cleansed once for all, and would no longer have felt guilty for their sins. But those sacrifices are annual reminder of sins, because it is impossible for the blood of bulls and goats to take away sins. Therefore, when Christ came into the world, He said, "Sacrifice and offering you did not desire, but a body You prepared for Me; with burnt offerings and sin offerings You were not pleased. Then I said, 'Here I am. It is written about Me in the scroll -I have come to do Your will, O God." First He said, "Sacrifices and offerings, burnt offerings and sin offerings You did not desire, nor were You pleased with them" (although the law required them to be made). Then He said, "Here I am. I have come to do Your will." He sets aside the 1st (law) to establish the 2nd. And by that will, we have been made holy through the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ, once, for all. Day after day every priest stands and performs his religious duties; again and again he offers the same (animal) sacrifices, which can never take away sins. But when this priest (Jesus Christ) had offered for all time one sacrifice for sins, He sat down at the right hand of God. Since that time He waits for His enemies (demons) to be made His footstool (crushed under His feet), because by one sacrifice He has made perfect forever those who are being made holy. The Holy Spirit also testifies to us about this. First He says, "This is the covenant I will make with them after that time," says the Lord. "I will put My laws in their hearts. I will write them on their minds." The He adds, "Their sins and lawless acts I will remember no more." (So let us also not remember in such a way that allows shame and guilt to entrap us and drag us down into depression, suicide, and sin. Let us say no to such negative feelings and thoughts that are now today lies of satin, if we are forgiven.) Where these have been forgiven, there is no longer any sacrifice for sin.
HEBREWS 10:22-23 Let us draw near to God with a sincere heart in full assurance of faith, having our hearts sprinkled to cleanse us from a guilty conscience and having our bodies washed with pure water. Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for He Who promised is faithful.
HEBREWS 10:32-33 Remember those earlier days after you had received the light, when you stood your ground in a great contest in the face of suffering. Sometimes you were publicly exposed to insult and persecution.
HEBREWS 10:35,39 So do not throw away your confidence. We are not of those who shrink back and are destroyed, but of those who believe and are saved. (Let us meditate on what God and not on what satin tells our minds. Let us reject all lies. We are not doomed. It is satin who is doomed.)
1st PETER 2:9 - You are a chosen people, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people belonging to God, that you may declare the praises of Him Who called you out of darkness into His wonderful light. Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God. Once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy.
1st JOHN 1:9
1st JOHN 3:1-2 KJV - 1Behold, what manner of love the Father has bestowed on us, that we should be called children of God.
2Beloved, NOW are we sons of God, and it does not yet appear what we shall be; but we know that, when He shall appear, we shall be like Him; for we shall see Him as He is.
1st JOHN 4:4
1st JOHN 5:4-5 NKJV 4Whatever is born of God (has God's supernatural identity/DNA) overcomes the world. This is the (my) victory, that has overcome the world - our (my) faith (in our/my supernatural identity).
5Who is he (/she) who overcomes the world, but he (/she) who believes that Jesus is (our older brother,) the Son of God?
(Spiritual insights: As Jesus was/is, so are we in this world. I have royalty in my blood.
Lord, I believe my identity. I do not need deliverance. I am delivered. I stand delivered today. www.christlove.org )
JUDE 24 To Him who is able to keep you from falling and to present you before His glorious presence without fault and with great joy.
REVELATION 21:4 KJV God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes. There shall be no more death, sorrow or crying.
Neither shall there be any more pain, for the former things are passed away.
REVELATION 22:4 KJV His (God's) name shall be in their foreheads.
In the name of Jesus Christ, I bind, cast out, and place under the feet of Jesus the spirits of self-hatred and the spirits of self condemnation of all past, present and future generations...
Sometimes doctors, psychiatrists and even family members believe that they are normal and we are not. Never mind. It is what God thinks. Father knows best is true. We need to focus on what God sees and not even on what we see, but what we believe. Take God at His word. Children take time to grow up and so does the soul. Give yourself and God time to finish the work that needs to be done in us by Him and with Him. He is our role model and our mentor. He is our wheelchair.
He is our cane or crutch. Never believe what you see in the mirror. Believe what is in your heart and in God's heart.
Memorize the scripture you need to keep you afloat. Say it all day long, regardless of how you feel. Never rely on feelings. They can sabotage you. If we are in God's family, then we are royalty, regardless if others never notice. Doesn't God have a great sense of humor...
Thank You God, that You are so wise. Thank You God, that we are blood relatives. Thank You that You are our dad.
Thank You that You Love me. Thank You for all Your promises in scripture. Thank You for the hope we have in Your faithfulness, inch by inch, day by day. Thank You for Your angels that protect us from danger. Thank You for being our friend, when we are lonesome, rejected and scared. Thank You that I am OK. Thank You that I am getting better, daily, because of Your grace, mercy, love and power. In fact, thank You for being my doctor, the best one in the universe.
Joyce Meyer, after a fight with her husband, had a spell of self: criticism,
condemnation, reproach and put down.
As she continued this negative self talk, an ominous black cloud began to descend upon her and envelop her.
She recognized the cloud as being her enemy and immediately began to affirm, "I am the righteousness of God,"
over and over again, as the cloud began to retreat and then disappear.
This testimony can be found on audio cassette #A236 Broken and Made Whole www.joycemeyer.org
We need to learn that a lot of our negative feelings, if internalized, are or invite negative spirits.
We need to separate ourselves from them. Our safety is in speaking the word of God, what He says about us, regardless of what we feel, even regardless of what we think. God, help us to disregard our negative feelings that get us into trouble. Our mind, emotions, memories are soul. God is spirit. Spiritually we are newborns at the moment the Holy Spirit unites with our spirit. Only by the power of God in us can we realistically defeat negativity. We are impotent to overcome the enemy on our own. Why? God is a spirit. Satin is a spirit. It is a spiritual battle, first and foremost, played on the chessboard of life.
Joyce Meyer in her The War for Man's Soul video and editorial in 10/04 Enjoying Everyday Life magazine reminds us of the following: Our soul is mind, will and emotions. At the moment our spirit is renewed by God placing His Spirit inside us (the 2 shall become 1), is the moment that our soul becomes alive to Him, but also the moment we BEGIN to grow in Him.
We have spiritual daily growing pains, daily battles between choosing between God's and Satan's will, daily "votes" for or against God or our enemy. When we constantly focus on our sins, failures, mistakes, shortcomings, then we neglect to focus on Jesus. Instead we are fellowshipping with the enemy and rejecting God's forgiveness. God asked Joyce, "Are you going to keep fellowshipping with your failures and weaknesses or are you going to fellowship with Me?" Focusing on our failures and weaknesses make them worse. Where our attention goes, goes the power. This is war. The One Who wins it is not us, but God. Let us allow Him to finish the work He has begun in us by concentrating on what He says about us in scripture and not what the enemy says about us in our thoughts. Let us read aloud and memorize Romans 6, 7 and 8.
James E Collins, pastor of Eagle Heights, Revere,
Massachusetts shares the story of Bill Wilson, a New York Bus Pastor.
(3/6/05 radio AM 590) Bill's dad took off, never to return. Then his mom left him on a street corner and never returned.
However, what Satan intended for evil, God used as a blessing. A man found and parented him. He learned to repair buses and is now rescuing children in the ghetto. NEVER allow another to define who you are. NEVER allow a disease to define who you are. Instead meditate on the Word of God. Soak in the fatherly love of God. BELIEVE that you are special to Him. The more we experience the Love of God, the more we can trust. If we are 2/3 full of God then we can function at 2/3 capacity. Our spiritual engines need to be refueled daily. No car or person can run on empty.
From the book From Judaism to Christianity let us affirm this visualization with Morris Cerullo,
"Even now, I visualize 'God's Presence' flowing like a mighty stream into my being.
In the 'Stream of God's Presence' is Divine sufficiency for every need.
This very moment God's Presence is overflowing my whole being, bringing Divine Health and giving me strength to be 'complete in Him.' I see myself as God sees me; I am a whole person." Thank you God.
Satan has a bag of tricks.
Satan used the "bait and switch" tactic on Eve, the first woman in the universe.
However, what we need to look at now is the "I" word = me, myself and I.
When we think or have negative self talk, it is usually like this, "I am no good. I am shit.
I wish I had never been born, because it is too painful to live, etc."
If we have told God we are sorry for our sins (regardless of how we now feel about them).
Fact and feelings are not necessarily the same. Feelings can be lies of our enemy.
Satan is the one who goes about condemning us around the clock.
God on the other hand is forgiving and comforting.
If we have asked the invisible Jesus Christ to live in our hearts and be our savior.
If we have asked Jesus to baptize us with His Holy Spirit.
Then the Trinity (God, Son, Holy Spirit) has said YES, YES, YES.
The Trinity does not allow for a divorce.
Spiritual laws and government laws are not always the same.
We are His for better or worse. And He is ours - for ever...
How do I walk out my wellness on a daily basis?
The evil spirit, the devil, sneaks in the back door and contradicts whatever scripture says.
Not only that, he does it by deceit, giving us thoughts which are his and tricking us into thinking they are ours.
When we hear in our head thoughts that disagree with scripture, we must respond immediately with scripture.
For example. When Satin says in our mind, "I am not saved. I am not good enough. I am not worthy."
We are to immediately think/answer back the words of God's scripture:
"None of his sins that he committed shall be mentioned to him." Ezekiel 33:16
"He will subdue our iniquities. Thou will cast all their sins into the depths of the sea." Mica 7:19
"Himself took our infirmities, and bare our sicknesses." Matthew 8:17
"There is no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus." Romans 8:1
"If the Son therefore shall make you free, you shall be free indeed." John 8:36
"Their sins and iniquities will I remember no more." Hebrews 10:17
"The weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down
of strong holds, casting down imaginations, and every high thing that exalts itself the knowledge of God, and bringing into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ. 2nd Corinthians 10:4-5
"Thou will keep him in perfect peace, whose mind is stayed on Thee, because he trusts Thee." Isaiah 26:3
"My thought are not your thoughts." Isaiah 55:8
"There has no temptation given you but such as is common to man. God is faithful, Who will not suffer you to be tempted above that you are able. With the temptation He will make a way to escape." 1st Corinthians 10:13...
Listen to Holy Scripture continually on the radio, TV, audio cassettes, CD's.
Sing hymns continually.
Memorize any scripture that is relevant to you personally.
Go to church and Christian or Jewish groups at least once a week.
Find a prayer partner who you can call any day any hour.
Read scripture daily, even if it is one paragraph.
Why? We cannot defend our self against the enemy of our soul if we do not know the
word of God. The devil is a liar and we will fail to recognize his lies if we do not first know the word of God.
Second, Satin often uses the human flesh, our feelings to trick us. What we perceive as us is really the enemy. He is the author of disease and negative emotions. If we feel sick, fearful, or inferior, beware. It may not be the medication. It may not be ourselves.
It may be the enemy.
With all our might, we need to yell out loud or silently in our head, whatever God gives to us to contract Satan's lies and deceptions. Satan will take out anyone who will not defend himself. Get your pastor to pray for you daily. Go to mass daily, even if you are Jewish. The blood and bread of Christ in communion terrorizes the real enemy, Satan. Doctors and relatives are not our real enemies. It is the invisible enemy, Satan. However, let us NOT be afraid, for the Holy Spirit in us is greater than Satan. Let us stand up and defend ourselves, like David and Goliath, and win. Satan is all bluff and fakery. Let us not be tricked...
Benny Hinn's Fresh Manna CDs
www.bennyhinn.org teach that
when we acknowledge Jesus
as our savior and lord, He implants, like a tooth, His spirit into us. That spirit is newborn. It is a person. It is alive. It needs to be fed spiritually. It needs to grow. That spirit is housed in a body, our body. Our body is not a person. Our body is a house. The third thing Hinn teaches is that the soul is the connection between the body and the mind.
The soul houses the mind and the intellect. However, spiritual insight and spiritual comprehension is NOT in the soul, but in the spirit. It is the spirit that will go to heaven. The soul follows whichever is stronger, the spirit or the body. As the spirit grows up it can surpass the body in maturity. Then the soul can follow the leadings of the spirit more easily. Thus, there is hope for all of us. It is the spirit that goes to heaven. The body is left behind. It is the spirit that matters to God. God looks at the heart, the motives, the attitudes, all invisible to mankind. So every day let us feed our spirit, the real us, according to God...
Have we been told that we are the sum total of our
experiences, our genes, and perhaps our perceptions?
That may be true for the human being who has not been regenerated by the Holy Spirit.
When we asked Jesus to be our personal savior and when we asked Jesus to baptize us with His Spirit, we became an empowered member of God's spiritual family. We have a dual citizenship. One on earth and one on heaven. Some countries allow dual citizenship. God allows this, too. We now have a heavenly passport with our picture, name, and heavenly address on it. When we pass on from life to death, our spirit is not dead, but just passes on to heaven, with the Holy Spirit in us as our heavenly passport. The Holy Spirit is our ticket to heaven, paid for with the blood of Jesus Christ...
Why repeat all this that you already know? Because, now that we are a member of God's family and a brother/sister to Jesus, we need to talk in the language of our new citizenship. Other than tongues, we need to learn to speak 24 hours a day the Word of God (the language, thoughts and heart of God). That means we need to saturate our brain cells with the thoughts of God, so we can think like He thinks and say what He says.
We slowly change from a caterpillar into a butterfly, as we are obedient to think and say what scripture says, and to disregard what we the human feel and think that contradicts scripture. At first it is impossible, of course; but the newborn spirit in us, that now belongs to God, will grow inch by inch and day by day as we feed it the word of God.
We must refuse to accept thoughts that contradict God. We must reject lies that contradict God's word. We must refuse to accept everything we see that contradicts God. If my mind and my feelings tell me to desire death in order to avoid emotional paid, then immediately I need to reject that idea and that feeling, IN THE NAME OF JESUS, because it contradicts God's thoughts and feelings toward me. I now have a new reality, a new citizenship. The longer I learn, speak, and think the language of God, the more safe, comfortable, loved and free I will be. This is NOT a mind game or trick. God SPOKE the earth into existence. What we see is of our earthly citizenship. What God speaks pertains mainly to our spiritual citizenship, but also to our human existence. Be encouraged to speak His words. Speak His heavenly wellness into our earthly brains. Let our ears hear God's words. Let the enemy of our soul hear God's words. Let our brain cells hear God's words and be renewed. If the enemy comes and says that we are talking like a fool, tell him, "IN THE NAME OF JESUS, I place you under the feet of Jesus."
Romans 8:1 says: There is now no condemnation to them which are in Christ Jesus, who walk not after the flesh, but after the (Holy) Spirit.
Matthew 8:16 says: He cast out the (evil) spirits with a WORD and healed ALL. No psychiatrist, no medicine, just God talk. Jesus said that he only spoke what He heard his father speak. Let us only speak what we read in scripture. It is a win, win situation,
if we do not faint or quit under the attacks of well intentioned others or of the not well intentioned devil, who says that since he missed out on God's blessings, he does not want us to get them either (and will do everything in his power to snare us).
Matthew 9:4 Jesus said, "Why do you entertain evil thoughts in your hearts?"
Evil thoughts are any thoughts which disagree with scripture. Human, from the enemy, from the past, any and all thoughts not of God will harm me. See the great urgent need to know scripture, to believe scripture, and to speak scripture. It will take a life time to think and speak the language of heaven, but the Holy Spirit was sent to be our helper.
If a thought or feeling comes along and latches onto us, immediately say,
"Oh, I recognize you. Be gone, IN THE NAME OF JESUS."
Merlin Carothers in his 8/04 Praise News newsletter www.merlincarothers.com says that in addition to physical exercise, we need to exercise controlling what we think! In stead of being in a daze or mental fog, we can say thank you God and praise Him, even if it is for our feet being able to walk. Merlin encourages us to use our idle time for Him, not in serving Him necessarily, but in our attitudes and thoughts. Concentrating on aches and problems, sink our soul and increase the pain volume. Singing raises our joy and wellness. There are many case studies that prove this medically, because happiness triggers natural chemicals in our bodies boosting our immunity and wellbeing. Mary Carothers goes on to say that when thoughts of condemnation come, it is imperative to shoo them away with scripture that contradicts such lies of the devil. We can always say, "Lying spirit, go away in the name of Jesus." If we need help we can call on God to send His warring angels to defend us. In addition, let us never be afraid to call a close friend, relative or pastor for prayer. Jesus says, "Where 2 or 3 are gathered together, in My name, there am I."
Reinhardt Bonnke says that God habitually elects the rejects, and chooses those put aside by man.
William Marrion Branham's 1st chapter in The
Revelation of the 7 Seals comforts us who are less educated, polished,
renown, known, self-sufficient. It shares that God prefers the nobodies to
astonish the somebodies. God prefers secrecy and simplicity to astound the
famous and instruct the child. That way no one can claim the credit which
is due only to God. Those who are the scum of the earth have the best
chance with God. Moses, due to poor self-image was given his brother as a
help mate. In scripture, many of those used by God needed constant
reassurance, due to negative self-worth. Never, never base your worth on
what others, educators, bosses, parents, doctors proclaim is THE truth.
Instead, only base your worth on what God says in scripture. If in any
way, we fall short, then confess. Then we are covered with the blood of
Jesus, and God cannot see that sin ever again; so we must not remind ourselves
or God of something that is already forgiven.
If an enemy reminds us of past sin, then reject that accusation, every single time! www.branham.org
Another insight. Suppose we have been assigned to teach
a Sunday/Saturday school class or to preach from the pulpit.
We discover after the sermon is delivered that there is a lot of praise, but to our surprise the praise falls short. Our neediness is too great. The words have blessed the congregation. The Lord has blessed His sheep. The Lord has received His due praise. What has gone wrong? Our need to be accepted for who we are is too great. Our work is excellent, so it seems. We, however fall short. The real problem is how we view ourselves. We do not perceive ourselves from God's vantage. We need to borrow God's eye glasses. If in fact, we are God's children, then we are fully accepted in Christ Jesus.
1st Kings 17:1-6 NKJV 1Elijah the Tishbite,
of the inhabitants of Gilead, said to Ahab, "As the Lord God of Israel lives,
before whom I stand,"...2Then the Word of the Lord came to
him (Elijah), saying, 3"Get away
from here, turn eastward, and hide by the Brook Cherith, which flows into the
Jordan. 4It will be that you (Elijah)
shall drink from the brook. I have commanded the ravens to feed you
(Elijah) there." 5So he
(Elijah) went and did according to the Word of the Lord,
for he (Elijah) went and stayed by the Brook Chreith,
which flows into the Jordan. 6The ravens brought him
(Elijah) bread and meat in the morning and bread and
meat in the evening. He (Elijah) drank from
(PS - Notice in your grocery store a bread called Elijah bread.)
Notice, it is God - not the ravens - who get the credit for ministering to Elijah...
If there are character defects remaining in us, Oh Lord, please deal with them quickly, but gently.
Let us be soft like unfired clay, so we can be molded aright, and then ready to withstand the fire of Your Holy Spirit, so that we will not faint or wilt under the school of hard knocks, the tricks of the enemy, or Your holy discipline. In Jesus Name we pray...
In the Garden of Eden there was NO SELF-CONSCIOUSNESS, at least NO sense of embarrassment/shame/neediness/ inadequacy until Satan tricked man into sinning/self sufficiency/disobedience/separation from God.
Arthur Burt in Wales www.arthurburt.com is one of the best to highlight the need to DIE
to SELF and allow Christ to replace that subsequent vacancy in oneself. Sin allowed something to create a self or at least to damage it &/or create an unholy monster with the sin-nature similar to that of Satan. Numerous churches have infant baptism to eradicate this inherited "original sin" nature. Most all churches have an adult baptism to wash away this inherited sin (original/actual/nature).
It is the self which gets/allows hurt to the psyche and which one attempts to defend/protect and with which one reacts/strikes out in retaliation to punish/hurt others.
It is the part of us that needs/wants a doctor/shrink/psychiatrist and/or psychiatric meds. It is the part of us that needs a hug/kiss/comforter. It is the part of us that may allow addiction to alcohol/drugs/porn/ promiscuity in the search for comfort and/or control of self/others.
When self is dead it cannot be hurt. We need to allow Jesus Christ to heal all wounds. We need to respond only to God and never to circumstances. This is nothing to do with allowing others to walk all over us. It does have to do with deep intimacy with Christ and having deep fellowship with His Holy Spirit. Saint Paul mentions a lot his dying to self and living to Christ.
Father God, in the name of Your Son Jesus Christ, I am looking for a quick fix, but I also recognize that I need time to grow spiritually, intellectually and emotionally. Come quickly. Remove my fear, hurts and despair. Give me hope, peace, Your wisdom, holy friends, and human help. Help me to trust those whom You send to me. I choose to die to self and to live for You according to the daily insight and power You daily provide, one day at a time.
I repent for every single sin of what I have done, namely ______________.
I repent for every single sin of what I have failed to do, namely ________________.
I place them under Your blood.
I repent for every sin in my family committed against You, namely ________________ .
I forgive all sins committed against me personally, namely _____________ .
I forgive all sins committed against my family including my ancestors, namely _____________ .

I renounce and reject Satan and all his works.
I ask You, Jesus to come into my heart and live there permanently, right now, today _________.
I ask You, Jesus to baptize me and fill me up with Your Holy Spirit, right now, today _________.
I come to you NOT on my merits but on the merits of Your body wounded and blood shed for us on Your cross at Calvary 2000 years ago. It was not only that generation's sins but also my sins that caused Your suffering and death. Thank You for having the power to rise from that death and for having the same resurrection power now indwell me through Your Holy Spirit to heal my mind, body, and spirit, to heal others through my cooperation with You, to have Your strength to resist/reject temptation, plus to take my spirit to live with You in heaven when my body dies. Amen.
Almonte, Tommy - A
Journey to Intimacy book or CD of 6/2005 interview
The Holy Spirit reminded Tommy of 2 scriptures (Romans 8:1 and John 8:3-11) to reinforce the point that Jesus looks at us through the eye glasses of non condemnation. It is Satan who is the accuser. The Holy Spirit does convict us of actual sins, so we will repent, but He does not condemn, or accuse us again for any sin for which we have already repented.

Chapter 1 Blessed Are the Poor in Spirit - Each of us need to be 100% "fully dependent on the One Who is always dependable." The degree of relinquishment of self sufficiency, the degree for which we believe/trust Him, plus the degree for which we hunger for (and worship) Him - will affect the degree of our "fulfillment of His plans for you (us) that were laid before the foundation of the world."
Chapter 3 Blessed Are the Meek "Sometimes I feel so helpless and weak.
I think that is why God uses me. Because I cannot depend on my own strength.
I rely on Him 24 hours a day," says Mother Teresa. "Self reliance...God cannot use selfish ambition...conceit...Consider others to be better than yourself. You never put yourself in the high place above others."
Chapter 8 Blessed Are Those Who Are Persecuted Because of Righteusness
Mother Teresa writes on behalf of Jesus, "Look at My heart that was pierced (and emotionally broken/wounded/hurt) for you.
Have you not understood My cross? Then listen again to the words I spoke there, for they tell you clearly why I endured all this for you.
'I thirst.' (John 19:28). Yes, I thirst for you, as the rest of the Psalm verse, which I was praying says of Me,
'I looked for love and found none.' (Psalm 69:20)."
Epilogue Philippians 2:5
Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus, Who being in very nature God,
did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made Himself nothing.

Lisa: "We need to see that the moment that we became a Christian, we became a (spiritual) target...The attacks on their past wasn't because they were bad, it wasn't because they made mistakes. Maybe, yes, maybe, but the truth is it is a deeper underlying thing attacking their future. And if they can change the way they see their past, they can change the way they see their future...
I heard the Holy Spirit say, 'I do not love My children equally...Same would mean one of you were replaceable. Equal would mean my love could be measured...My love is immeasurable. I don't love my children equally, I love them uniquely'...
I looked up the 3-fold definition of unique. #1 is: Sole representative of.
There is no other Betty. There is no other James. You are the sole representative of that. #2 is: Prototype. But #3 was my favorite. It is: Without rival. There is no rival for the love of God. There is no competition for his attention or his affection or his power or his entrustment or his gifting. If the church stops seeing one another as rivals and begin to see it as a body, then we will be united and God will be glorified. We're going to actually come until fullness of the stature of Jesus Christ instead of pieces and fragments."
James: "Understand...the enemy that attacks us so fiercely, continuously...
He's trying to destroy the purposes of God in your life, that you are uniquely designed to fulfill...Understand how important you are and that the enemy is trying to stop what God wills for you and through you for His eternal purpose and kingdom purpose and to bless others."

And last, she teaches step by step how to meditate on God's Word - to replace the old, corrupt thoughts consistently with the Loving Promises from our Father...Whenever Satan attempts to distract me with (others') words (or self-talk) of inferiority and or fear, I now know how to do (believe/memorize/apply/speak/ contradict/refute/respond with) the Word (of God) by renovating my mind and, therefore, changing my self-image." http://dennisburkeministries.org/

Chapter 7 - The One-Man Show Is Over - There is a "difference between Pentecost and Tabernacles...
In Pentecost we've had measure...never had fullness...reserved for the final move of God...never had because Tabernacles is related to fullness."
"Man's glory is the enemy of the glory of God...If the one-man show has gone, then the One Man Show has arrived, but this One Man Show is Jesus. The only identity now in what's coming is Jesus...All these other people who are redeemed through His Blood must now lose their identity in the One Man Show (as did John the Baptist defer to the Messiah when He showed up and revealed Himself to John)...I cease to be me...My glory, my identity must die...Now I find out I'm only part of the whole...I've been very much THE show. Now comes my funeral, my lost identity...and I discover I'm part of the whole...
Now I discover I'm a whole part (of the body of Christ)."

Only as I decrease, can He increase...and in that day when He looks inside me and says, 'This is My beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.' http://bible.cc/matthew/3-17.htm He does NOT mean Arthur Burt.

3.What is it that I consistently find myself sharing about or helping others with?
4.Why do I think God created me?
5.What am I most passionate about?
6.What things enrage me and what problems in the world do I have a passion, over and above all others, to solve?

I died (to self) at the beginning of this parable. Now your brother has died (to self).
The calf has died (in being sacrificed to God).

When the flesh/self is dead, then the Holy Spirit can begin to raise up/heal/deliver/help the individual, who in his own power is useless/powerless/impotent. The dead person who "spiritually knows" that Jesus will heal/is healing/has healed, does not need to name or claim. That man is dead to self, but alive to Christ. - audio/visual - www.bennyhinn.org

A magnificent illustration is

in the bleachers try to take it off them. Once the knowledge (that our
identity is based on what God says in scripture) gets inscribed into our heart,
we will begin to be able to agree/accept/be comfortable with His personality
inside us. Hinson instructs us to tenaciously hang onto our new identity in
God/Christ. For beginners he asks us to list daily for 6 weeks on our
bathroom mirrors, only those good qualities in ourselves which Christ daily
reveals to us.
As a child of God, consider that you are "adopted" and are part Jew/Israeli/god/royalty.

Hooks, Dorothy E - Agenda for the Week of February 21st – 27th Abused ] Prayer of Release From Self-Bitterness -
To be set free from self-bitterness: [“Make a list of all the bitterness you have had or have against yourself. We need to confess and repent before Almighty God for holding onto this bitterness and believing it, instead of believing Him [God]. The stronghold that self-bitterness has held in your life will be destroyed, and Satan's power over you will be legally cancelled. After you have written your list, pray the Prayer of Release (listed below) for each issue on your list; do NOT do a 'blanket' prayer –Praying each issue separately will cause you to face and deal with each issue one at a time. – If it is too overwhelming for you to do at one time, you can ask someone you trust to help you by letting them pray the prayer and you repeat it."]
Prayer of Release (Self-Bitterness) – Say this prayer:
"Dear Heavenly Father, in the name of Jesus, and as an act of my free will,
I confess, repent, and renounce my (specific sin of self-hatred).
I ask You to forgive me for this sin.
I purpose and choose to forgive myself for this (specific sin of self-hatred) from my heart.
I release myself from any guilt or shame because of this self-bitterness.
In the name of Jesus, and by the power of His blood, I cancel Satan's authority over me because of the self-bitterness of (specific sin of self-hatred).
In the name of Jesus, I command this spirit of self-bitterness to go.
Holy Spirit, I invite You into my heart to heal me of self-bitterness. Please speak Your words of truth to me about this situation.” (per BFOF book, pg 100).
[As Holy Spirit begins to speak to you, write down what He says; so you can have it later when the enemy tries to come back. After you have prayed through your list about each situation, command the PRINCIPALITY of self-bitterness to go in the name of Jesus (per BFOF, pg 100).

Chapter 15 Our Supreme Example
Psalm 8:5 KJV Thou hast made Him a little lower than the angels, and hast crowned Him with glory and honour.
Hebrews 2:2-9 KJV Thou (Father God) madest Him (Christ/Messiah) a little lower than the angels; thou crownedst Him with glory and honour and didst set Him over the works of Thy hands; Thou hast put all things in subjection under His feet. For in that He put all in subjection under Him, He left nothing that is not put under Him. But now we see not yet (manifested) all things put under Him. But we see (have historical and spiritual evidence of) Jesus, Who was (temporarily) made a little lower than the angels for the (purpose of) the suffering of death, crowned with glory and honour, that He by the grace of God should taste death for every man.
Jesus had to be made "a little lower than the angels" (birthed as a human/take on the garment of flesh) to become vulnerable, humble, tested, obedient, and to fulfill God's secret purposes from the foundation of the earth. Jesus' restraint against self defense and retaliation during his abuse, torment, and crucifixion was resolute/immutable. Had Jesus the man given in to His feelings and ignored His purpose for becoming human (Holy Spirit housed in flesh), He would have thwarted God's plan and left mankind bereft without any recourse of reconciliation with God or chance to have eternal life. Adam failed. Perhaps Jesus had the opportunity to fail, but He chose not to fail. Each of us have ongoing opportunities to fail or not. Father, God in Jesus name, we apologize for each and every past failure as well as the failures of our ancestors. We receive the forgiveness provided by Your son. Thank You. Now we ask for Your help and empowerment for today and tomorrow not to fail but rather to be a blessing both to You and to others. Amen.

RT reminds us that (once we have repented and asked Jesus to be our savior) we are covered with His blood and therefore perfect in His eyes. What that means is that Father God views us through eye glasses tinted with the blood of Jesus. Why? Because as a parent, He has adopted us. All children who belong to parents are awesome.
That does not mean that we children do not need to learn, to grow, to become.
Every child needs to mature. It means Father God will always love us and never divorce us.

Lovett, C. S. -
Dealing With The Devil - recommended
"This book deals with the devil, not with demons...Satanolongy and demonology
should be treated as SEPARATE SCIENCES...Satanology is concerned with RESISTING
ATTACKS against one's own person. Demonology is concerned with CASTING OUT
beings already lodged in...Satanic attacks must be REPULSED, while demons have
to be DISLODGED."
"Indeed. The Christian who fails to take up arms against Satan is already defeated. The lack of resistance invites satanic control. Satan has a perfect disguise that allows him to acquire almost total dominion of a Christian's life, yet the victim doesn't suspect the identity of his evil master. The satanically led Christian doesn't give one thought to Satan. Yet, all the while the god of unrighteousness is ordering the steps of his life. You wouldn't think such a thing could happen to a Christian, but when you learn the nature of his disguise, you might blush. It could explain why your life in Christ isn't all you would like it to be. His disguise? Hang on for the surprise. The mask is - SELF...
You're in a conversation. Some things coming from your lips are self-centered. Count the 'I's'. 'I think, I always, If I were you, If you ask me, take me for example, etc.' Watch yourself as others are speaking. How do you focus? Really listening, or thinking about yourself...
Memorize verses which have to do with your weakness areas; the Holy Spirit can bring them up as soon as Satan strikes (your thoughts/mind/imaginations/emotions). That gives you a 'fast gun!' It is a thrilling experience to see how quickly Satan flees when God's Word is fired at him. The pressure release comes at once. That's a different use of God's Word. You can understand how any weapon is ineffective until used...
A shock treatment for Satan: Calling out Satan's name is but the first word of our resistance. After that comes your command to him, 'Go!' Our Lord Jesus set the pattern. The Scripture is clear, our Savior met the devil in His wilderness testing and dealt with him (personally). 'Satan, be gone (in Jesus' name)! For it is written, (Bible quote).'"
(Full Simpson editorial "may be freely distributed as is without alteration".)
Simpson credits Lovett, "I'm grateful to a number of writers, particularly C. S. Lovett
in his book Dealing With the Devil for some of the principles shared in the following:"
"Satan's finest disguise is the disguise of self. What a believer would never do in the name of the devil, he'll do all the time for himself. If you were...choosing between Christ and self, with Satan's deceptive power behind the self, the unsuspecting believer will choose self almost every time."
Until this revelation, "there seemed to be an unspoken rule that if you ignored or discounted the workings of Satan, then he would have little effect on your life. It was as if we'd reinterpreted the Scripture in James 4:7 'Resist the devil and he will flee from you' to mean 'ignore the devil and he will flee from you'...
Your thought life is the battlefield...The enemy assigns specific spirit beings to every believer to keep his mind from operating and resting in the He things of God. Unless these beings are resisted, a believer's mind will be like a city without walls, easily invaded by anything that happens to be around. Solomon describes this in the Proverbs, 'He that has no rule over his own spirit is like a city that is broken down, and without walls.' (Proverbs 25:28)...The spiritual war is won or lost in the battlefield of the mind. Until a person recognizes this and begins to take steps to clean up the thought life, all other spiritual activities are futile...Satan has access into the mind of the believer. Now we all know that God can see and examine the thoughts of our heart:..But, do you realize that the enemy also has a pretty clear insight into what you're thinking? If you doubt that, consider this verse, 'When anyone hears the word of the kingdom, and understands it not, then comes the wicked one, and catches away that which was sown in his heart.' (Matthew 13:19a) This passage tells us that Satan has the ability to peer into your mind to see if you understand God's Word when it's sown in your heart. From this we see that the enemy does indeed have the capability to gaze into the depths of your thoughts.
We're also told that Satan can steal truth out of a man's heart when that truth is not fully understood.
If that isn't bad enough, Satan can also inject into your heart his own lies. Consider what Peter said to a believer: But Peter said, 'Ananias, why has Satan filled your heart to lie to the Holy Ghost.' (Acts 5:3a)Apparently, the enemy has pretty formidable access into one's thought life. As uncomfortable as this may make you feel, it's important that you understand it if you're going to successfully thwart his attacks... Satan is a spirit and communicates to your mind and spirit in a fashion similar to the Holy Spirit...
Resist the devil. There are many believers who submit themselves to God but know very little about what it means to resist the devil. Most are quite helpless in this area because of their scant knowledge of the enemy and his ways. They've been taught that if they just remain faithful to God and serve others, they'll be safe. That's dangerous logic. Most believers are like a young girl who is devoted to her parents but ignorant of boys. Her submission to her parents won't protect her, though, from the young man who knows how to take advantage of her female ignorance. Ignorance of sex is dangerous in a parked car! Ignorance of Satan is dangerous in this evil world! There's only one thing that will cause the enemy to flee: you must PERSONALLY resist him (in Jesus' name). Your parents can't do it. Your pastor can't do it. Your spouse can't do it. Nor can anyone else. Even God won't intervene for you here. He's given you the authority in His Son to do it for yourself. Until you learn to stand up and fight the enemy of your soul, you'll forever be in bondage. But once you begin to resist the enemy in your life and in the situations you encounter each day, a whole new realm of spiritual power and victory will open up for you."

to do and be something that someone else cannot...
God...wants to talk to you...to give you His plan for your ministry. Lay aside the books
you have read, the seminar...and get into a quiet place with God where He can speak His plan into your spirit. His Glory is experienced only where He is present. Merely talking ABOUT Him does NOT substantiate His presence. We must worship...hear and obey Him...He yearns (hungers) for intimacy with us. Worship is the highest form of intimacy with God...He is returning for a Bride who loves His appearing...We must be able to sense the Spirit communicating to us at all times."6.16.2011
Chapter 14 Knowledge of the Glory - "There is a difference between a follower of the ark and a carrier...Learn how to carry the ark for yourself...not...another person's ark...
If you do not have the ark yourself, you can't carry it. When you go into a place to minister, your spirit acts out of the atmosphere which is in that place...good or bad...
You can actually see, with your eyes of faith, into the realm from where the words are coming...life or death...
It is not about confession...What God is really saying...will come to pass. Hebrews 4:2...
(Additionally) "each one of us needs to learn how to receive from the (spiritual) realm of Glory...Until you learn how to open Heaven for yourself (for instance during - high worship, anointed preaching, Jewish holy festivals) you cannot carry the ark. There is a level of revelation, understanding and reverence (plus accountability) necessary for one to carry the ark of His presence (where you mind is renewed/aligned with the mind of God)."

5/2005 Amy Williams gives testimony how seeing Joyce Meyer TV program and reading
this book freed her from the "grip" of fear, self doubt, self rejection and self isolation.
Amy shared with Joyce how she put the relevant words of God in each room, on the mirror, on the refrigerator, etc, memorized and quoted that word until it replaced her old self image with God's view of her. Live above the "feelings" of insecurity, inadequacy and the fear of rejection. Ask for audio/video of testimony.

Preface - "You are marked for the best in life. This (marvelous) book...could be God's way of saying, 'I love you! I want to help you! You have great worth. You are too valuable to ever be a loser! I'll be with you! Nothing will be impossible for you and Me!" A must read for all, especially those with poor self-image issues. God created you to be His house in which His Holy Spirit wants to live for the rest of your life! God created you to be His
office out of which He can operate daily! God created you to be His hospital out of which He can heal continually! God created your arms with which He can hug others.
Chapter #1 The Terrific 'You' God Made
"NEVER entertain demeaning thoughts abut yourself again.
NEVER SPEAK or act as a 2nd class person."
Always expect God to help you become the awesome wonderful unique one of a kind individual He intended, when He conceived/designed/molded you in your mother's womb.
"When the information of the Bible becomes your basis for believing God's (wonderful) ideas about you; then you have the mind of Christ."
David - Nigeria - Satan Get Lost - excellent
filenames/Oyedepo.Dr%20David%20!Satan%20Get%20Lost.pdf - "If you are going to walk in victory over Satan, you must be fully aware of your identification with Christ in every stage of His redemptive work...You are worth several things - you are worth a terror in the world! Carry a consciousness of the authority that is in you. Use it to promote the kingdom of God here on earth. Be the one harassing the devil. Walk in power and authority...The day you gave your life to Jesus, you received another life. You had human life before, now you have eternal life, which is the God-order of life. So you now operate the God-order of life within the form of an ordinary structure. Carry the understanding therefore, that the same way Moses confronted Pharaoh, is the same way you are to handle Satan, in anyway he presents himself...
Friend, another life has been infused and injected into you. It is eternal life - the very life of God! 2 Corinthians 4:7 in the Bible calls it 'this treasure in earthen vessels'.
If you approach spiritual battles as a human being, you are bound to fail, because the flesh profiteth nothing.
It is the spirit that quickeneth. By strength shall no man prevail.
Isaiah 59:19 says: 'When the enemy shall come in like a flood, the Spirit of the Lord shall lift up a standard against him'. Not a man's height, status or the strength of his natural muscles, but the Spirit of God on the inside of him. This is the only way man can successfully put the enemy, Satan, where he belongs. Psalms 82:6 says, 'I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.' All of you that are the children of the Most High God are gods. And I mean all, not some, not a few. But because you don't know this, you are prone to die like men and fall like one of the princes.
You must know that by virtue of your new birth, you are no longer a mere being, but a peculiar being in human form. Everybody is free to be plagued by diseases, not you. Everybody is free to be frustrated in their various endeavors except you. The nobles of the earth may have no place to put their seats, not you. 'I have said, Ye are gods!'
You must understand in depth how this revelation is to affect your daily lifestyle. Besides, you must put it into practice. Ye are gods! Know it! Understand it! Walk in the reality of it! Work it out! Be Conscious Of It - The knowledge of the Holy God, and the consciousness of His nature flowing in your veins, is your staff of office on the earth. Without it, you lose control. You have the infallible nature of God that determines His own course and destiny, in your heart. You need to awaken your spiritual consciousness, and call off religion. We have been called to exhibit the transformed life on the earth. It's time to show the devil that Jesus is still alive in us. For your Pharaohs to submit to you, you must walk in the consciousness of the truth that says, 'Ye are gods.' For diseases to obey you, for sicknesses to bow to you, for poverty to give way to you, you must carry this consciousness about - that you are indeed a god in the form of a man. (Once you repent of your sins and invite Jesus to be your Messiah and baptizer in His Holy Spirit) go and discover your (spiritual) roots, and live well! From now on, every mountain will obey you. You were once natural but now you are divine, because the life that makes for divinity now flows in you. Right now, whatever mountain you confront with this truth will obey you. Get ready! Stop struggling! Start walking in the light of this revelation, and in no time at all, you will know that God who gives you dominion, backs it up with power. You can dominate your circumstances.
You can send sickness away from your house! You can send poverty away from your territory! You can have what you please, as long as it is covered by the covenant. You shall no longer lose control, in Jesus name...
It is important you realize that the issue at hand is not the devil but you(r failure to recognize and act on your significance in Jesus Christ, Messiah). It is time to appreciate your spiritual inheritance, so that you can use an under-standing of these basic Bible truths to (begin to) reign on the earth." (This attitude is NOT to be confused with such ideology as New Age which does NOT acknowledge Jesus as Messiah and son of God; Jesus is NOT a way but the way.)
(Our problems arise from our lack of knowing who we are in Christ, rather than from demons, and from our failure to confront and remove them in the name of Jesus. The divine radiation/laser light living inside us should zap any demon in our presence)...Your distinction is in the Word of God. Your separation is in the Word of God. The difference between you and every body else will be determined by the Word. This is why you just have to embrace God's Word, more than your necessary food and all other necessities of life. So many are going around looking for prayers. Such people often come to me and say, 'Please agree with me.' I tell them, 'No, you agree with God('s word spoken in scripture, not an interpretation of it, but an actual rendition. If you have no Bible go & buy one, if you are in a country where it can be purchased. The internet has many free translations).'"

Prince, Derek - Rules of Engagement - www.derekprince.org - recommended author - Prince reminds us that it is imperative for us to focus more on the way that God sees us, and less on the way we see ourselves.
If God chose you from the foundation of the world to be His child, then there will be no heavenly wedding feast until you are there. Prince defines the soul as ego, consisting of 3 ingredients - will, intellect + emotions.
The brain (mind) houses much of our soul/ego/thoughts. The spirit is the God part of our personality.
The body is the house where the soul and spirit reside, as earthly tenants.
Prince believes that achievements affect time, whereas character affects eternity.

"I have deliberately set obstacles in thy path to test thy prowess.
I shall not always cause favorable winds to blow upon thy barque, for then ye would be at ease and would soon grow soft and dull...Thus I can strengthen your spiritual fiber (as one does a plant's roots).
The storm is not a thing to fear, but rather to welcome. Ye shall learn to head into the wind with sheer delight, as soon
as ye have made the discovery that in the time of stress and strain, ye have the clearest revelations of Myself."
Learn to Reign Section: The Mind of God -
"Ye shall know who hath need of healing, and what the physical need, yes, even what is the true cause of illness, that healing may be complete in the whole man. Ye shall know who is speaking error, and ye shall not only discern the craftiness of the enemy, but know how to rebuke him in My Name."
Learn to Reign Section: Grow Up In Me -
"Commit to Me thy sanctification. Bring thy thoughts into captivity and let they mind be under the control of the (Holy) spirit within you, neither refuse to allow Me the freedom to manifest Myself through you by means of the gifts.
Ye may resist Me, because ye feel unworthy or 'unready' to be used. This is a delusion of the mind.
I do not use you, when you 'feel prepared', but when I need you and you are yielded.
Even as I use you, ye will discover that in the process of being used, I shall do a work in you yourself, to the edification of your own heart and life...
So then, ye block the way to your own spiritual development if ye hold Me back when I would minister through you. (Ephesians 4:12,16) Indeed, if the time should ever come that ye 'feel ready', I would then be completely blocked by your pride, and would be forced to use someone else."

"Come into that place where ye share My authority and thus I will be able to manifest forth My glory through you. This is My greatest joy, to lift man out of enemy territory, and seat him in the heavenlies with Me. Where am I? Even at the right hand of the Father...and ye are seated with Me, far above all principalities and powers. Through Me ye have inherited all. Ye can lay claim to that inheritance NOW because I have already died. Because I have already died, ye can enter in NOW. You do NOT gain an inheritance when you die (and go to heaven), but when (Christ Jesus, Messiah) the testator dies. Take it, My people. It is yours NOW. It is yours because of Calvary...Think of My love...the tie-in between Calvary and this sharing of My throne life (right NOW on earth).
I want you with Me. I want you seated beside Me, because I want you near Me, because I love you...
(We have been deputized to function on earth on His behalf, not impotently, but with audacity, in Jesus' name)
I have vested you with authority, also...Recognize your privilege to do so...Move out in the power of the Spirit into that realm where I would have you to live and move and yes...live in Me continually, and not that ye be moving in and out of this place. I would have you live continually in the center of the Kingdom of God, just as I have place the Kingdom within the very center of your being (when God's Holy Spirit impregnates your human spirit when you are born again; water and Holy Spirit baptism further empowers one's spirit man). You bring this Kingdom into operation in you own life by an act of faith...
There are works which I must yet do through My body, the Church, which I could not possibly have accomplished through My own physical body in My earthly ministry...
There are sufferings yet to be accomplished in the body of the Church that I was not able to suffer on the cross...
Yea, and Praise Me when the most difficult thing to do is Praise. This is the victory that over-cometh the world...Faith rejoicing for victories claimed in advance...the very fabric of things hoped for...the raw material in My hands...I am happiest there, and...ye shall make the enemy most unhappy...This (praise) is the most powerful weapon ye can use against him (Satan). So praise is like a 2-edged sword, the one side bringing health to your own spirit and the other side cutting down the enemy."
Listen to the Silence Section Renew Thy Vows - "No one else can do what I have reserved for you;
and be very sure that if ye fail, it shall remain undone."
Listen to the Silence Section Take the Glory with Thee -
"In this, thy ministry together with Me to those in need, thou fillest up that which is left of the sufferings of Christ. (Colossians 1:24) My physical sufferings, the broken body, the shed blood, My death, these were completed at the cross. But the travail of soul until the completion and perfection of the Body of Christ (the church) this continueth until My coming in power and glory to receive unto Myself, My chosen Bride. For I have chosen each member of the body as an individual, and the Church as a corporate body, so ye are twice chosen, individually and collectively."
Listen to the Silence Section My Kingdom Is at Hand -
"These are going to be glorious days for you, My chosen. And this has been a mutual choosing.
If the would would choose Me NOW, I would usher in My Kingdom NOW, even as in the days of Jesus' (earthly ministry).
Israel had then (in that generation) the opportunity to accept her Messiah. Having rejected, judgment ensued.
So, it is today (in each generation/lifetime). Mankind has had nearly 2,000 years to accept My grace and My forgiveness and (My) salvation. Having rejected, doom is inevitable...
See that thy witness not cease. Only as ye have a full (daily/continuous overflowing to others) supply of My Spirit can the (Holy Spirit) fire of testimony be kept alive.
They who hold darkened lamps could scarcely be un-believers; for the lamp is My Word.
My Word without My Spirit can produce no witness. The fire is the witness, and the fire cometh never from the Word alone, but always from the Word and the oil of the Spirit. See that ye lose not the oil...Be burning, for when I come I shall come for the living, not for the (impotent/spiritually) dead."
Listen to the Silence Section I Wait for Thee -
"I come to thee via My holy Spirit from the depths within they being that thou hast never plumbed; from chambers within thy soul (mind/emotions/will/ conscience) which thine eyes have never seen: Rooms of darkness, not dark because of sin necessarily, as ye think of sin, but dark because they have been kept closed. Indeed, none (no human/mind) but I (God through spiritual revelation) have the key to open."

Dr Rogers says in 3/14/05 (rebroadcast) audio that we are either saints or aint's.
(That means that our self image is based on how God views us through His glasses or how Satan views us through his glasses. It is imperative that we use God's eye glasses. It is imperative that we accept God's Son sacrifice for our sins and allow Jesus to become our savior, so that we can be adopted into the family of God. Then we have the legal entitlement to view things the way God does, through the lens of love and NOT of condemnation.)

Section 1 Women in Old China Chapter 1 No Rights at Home or in
Society notes that "the masculine (yang) and feminine (yin) roles were at
first evenly divided, but later in time placed woman in a
subservient position to the man. A woman was not even considered a person.
The story commonly told in china is of a housewife who heard someone knocking at
'Is anybody in?' a man asked. The woman quickly answered, 'No, nobody is here.'
What a pity that she never considered herself a 'somebody'...Girls were taught to...serve their sons when widowed...Upon marriage, a woman had to give up her first name and replace it with her husband's last name...lost her individuality...The last word (or sir name), Shi, was required of every woman and denoted 'Possession of.'."

Satan recognizes who Jesus is; he just does not want believers to recognize that they died, rose and sit WITH Christ in Heaven. Satan wants Messianic believers to remain toothless. Like internet thieves, Satan has stolen our inherited Godly identity and we are whispering, "Pretty pretty please, hand it back" and "Don't hurt me in the process, Mr. monster Devil." Satan has become inflated and God has become deflated, along with ourselves. There are 2 kinds of zeal; 1 that exhausts; 1 that ignites with Holy Ghost fire. The moment we reduce relationship to a recipe, we lose spontaneity and intimacy. God's dream was to have a perfect/perfected bride/family/kingdom on earth as in heaven; each generation is coming closer to fulfilling His passion originating/birthed/planted in Eden. God's kingdom also includes His Holy Spirit indwelling in our hearts to the degree that we can "aggressively" in LOVE imitate the works of Christ here on earth, right now! We need to defend God's opinions and reputation at the expense of losing ours or contradicting others, including doctors and scientists. We can only do this if we trust God to back us us and trust in our heavenly citizenship, to the same degree that President Obama relies on his American birth certificate, regardless of controversy or contradiction. We not only have an identity & purpose today, but also in our future generations and even in the future kingdom of God in heaven. NOTHING qualifies us except Jesus! Let us accept our identity in Him before we die without utilizing our free inheritance! Every legal claim Satan throws at us will stick, unless we violently apply the Blood of Jesus to our situation and exterminate those lies/diseases/ problems. Jesus lived a life daily conscious of his true identity in God; likewise let us begin to tune into that spiritual reality, daily. Let us daily meditate on daddy God's opinion/adoration of us, so that we respond to Him like a flower to the morning sunshine. Having read the Bible through once, upon subsequent readings, let us replace our name where Jesus' name is written. This will begin to help one internalize the significance of our role in our generation; Christ in me and I in Christ, beginning with His baptism in the Jordan river. When forgiven, we are INNOCENT before God, clothed/covered in Jesus' robe of righteousness; guilt & condemnation are all dirty garments of Satan, which he attempts to lay illegally upon us. BEWARE of his treachery. (Author says Promised Land is NO longer a geographical address; spiritually true, but physically false. Israel does have a prominent role to play prophetically, politically, AND spiritually, especially in the final 1,000 Biblical years.)

Spurgeon, Charles - Power in the Blood - publisher www.whitakerhouse.org - Chapter 1 Healing by the Stripes of Jesus - Spurgeon testified that before he became "born again", "When I was a youth, the burden of my (venial) sin was exceedingly heavy upon me. I had not fallen into any great sins...However, I regarded myself as such (a transgressor)...My conscience was sensitive because it was enlightened...having a godly father and a praying mother, and having been trained in the ways of piety." In other words, the Holy Spirit was working in his life (making his heart tender to the things of God) to lead him to Jesus Christ. The Holy Spirit convicts us to repent of sin that offends God, whereas Satan condemns us and draws us away from God and into sin.

Wearing theYoke Self sufficiency is a lie of Satan. God created us to be equally yoked to Him, where He carries/bears the heaviest portion at all times. The sooner we learn this, the sooner we can refuse/reject self-condemnation. Recognize that condemnation is always from our enemy Satan. "If you will not allow Me to be yoked with you in this life, you will advance little (especially in the area of joy/peace/contentment/satisfaction), and you will produce nothing eternal." (of heavenly value) We are NOT to get our significance from others (mate/date/children/boss/pastor/work/business/accomplishments), but only from Him. "To rebel is a statement of arrogance...Arrogance comes in the form of SELF-sufficiency, SELF-determination, and rebellion." (Rebellion can be a/one root cause of schizophrenia.)

might be the very grounds that God uses to train you for the ultimate: the
maximization of your potential and the fulfillment of purpose."

Prayer words can go where you can never go, into the courtroom, boardroom, etc. Book Soul Fast is about what's eating you, not what you are eating. Our wounded souls have holes being filled with things instead of God.
Abstain from negativity. Many people have been confused between demonic attack and birthing heaven's contractions; you are getting ready to be delivered.

Chapter 5 Hindrances to Spiritual Senses -
section 9 Deadly Embraces -
"The Lord spoke to me in dream...about 9 deadly embraces as a strategy of
the devil to lead people into (emotional, physical and spiritual)
bondage...In the dream I saw a man being freed...The Lord told me, 'He
is reemerging from the 9 embraces'...The Lord had me write the
"(1st) Embrace of an offense...[The (evil) spirit comes on the heels of...an offensive event. The Bible says that offenses will come, but it is up to each one of us to either embrace the offense or release it immediately to God. If one embraces the (evil) spirit of offense, they have opened a door for other (evil spirit) embraces to follow. This is a strategy of the enemy to bring people into bondage (captivity/character defects).]
(2nd) embracing a lying spirit of reinterpretation [exaggerates events and explains things (and motives) in a negative way]...
(3rd) embracing a spirit of accusation and judgment...
(4th) embracing a spirit of bitterness [You can tell you are in bitterness when you relive the same event (&/or emotions) over and over in your mind...and then begin to spread it to others...Now these tormentors (demons) have a (legal) right to lock you up and torment you...until such a time as you forgive.]...[The 1st 4 points you choose to embrace.
The following 5 points embrace you, whether you want the to or not.]
(5th) embraced by a spirit of deception...[You become confused about who god is,
who you are and about all truth...The spirit of deception...keeps you locked up...
(However) If (or when) you know the truth (Who is a person,Yeshua), you will come to freedom (get out of prison/spiritual captivity).]
(6th) embraced by a spirit of (unexplainable/uncontrollable) fear and depression...
[A person wants to hide...Fears come out of nowhere...A spirit...takes over as further torment.]
(7th) embraced by a spirit of compulsions, obsessions and addictions...
(8th)embraced by a spirit of control...[It can manifest through flattery...tears...shouting... subtle manipulation...passive...or...aggressive control.]
(9th) embraced by a suppressing (demonic) spirit [(who often overcomes/submerges/ overtakes/overrides) a person's identity...The words and actions are no longer theirs but are caused by a spirit.]
Now the Good News - "Someone who is stuck in any of those stages...is to take (go) back to the original offense and deal with that...Release...the offending people and events (and then) all the house of cards that the enemy has erected falls to the ground. Allow the Holy Spirit to show where (the initial) offense came in...Release (give) it (and) all (judgment) to the Lord. (Forgive him/her/them and repent for unforgiveness, in order to receive your own) freedom (from captivity/problems)."
PRAYER: "Lord, I am not the judge; You are the only true and righteous judge...
I give (release to) You all these people...events and all these emotions."
After the prayer of forgiveness, in Jesus' name, "command all attached (evil) spirits to leave. Then pray (in Jesus' name) that the Father's love fill the void."
(NEVER take back what you have released to the Lord!) "Continue to give up to the Lord all those (recurring/repeat) thoughts and emotions related to those past events. The devil will try to get you to embrace offense again." (RESIST in Jesus' name all old thoughts and emotions, and the devil must flee.
Replace negative thoughts with holy/good thoughts (especially scripture) &/or replace with deeds (such as telling others about Jesus).

Tell about the great anointing they will come into as they give their lives to Him.

they have a place that no one else in the whole world can fill.
A great destiny, what a privilege, what a special person they are. Never stop telling them."

with Joanna Weaver - Part 1
Satan piggybacks on conviction regarding a highlighted problem and turns it into condemnation of others, self or both.
Satan wants us to become a convict, a prisoner, a captive.
Joanna asked God to make her perfect by age 30, just as He did for Jesus.
She did not realize that sanctification requires team work with the Holy Spirit, that perfection is not SELF-improvement,
and that problems can be character building bricks or God-opportunities.

Wigglesworth, Smith -
Ever Increasing Faith - www.whitakerhouse.com
A hysterical man came to Wigglesworth crying out that he was lost, due to committing the unpardonable sin. The Holy Spirit moved Smith to cry out, "Come out you lying spirit." Immediately the man was at peace. Wigglesworth says that the devil attacks our mind with his THOUGHTS and FEELINGS of our not being saved or healed, in order to refute/ contest/reverse what God has done. Wigglesworth says that satanic attack is a good sign
that we are in fact saved/healed. The danger is to allow the devil to make our minds a place of his stronghold. Instead, we are to "bring into captivity every thought to the obedience of Christ. 2nd Corinthians 10:5"
The devil is a liar, a trickster, a terrorist, and not a pet snake who never bites.
1st Peter 5:8 says that the devil goes about like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour.
Wigglesworth contends that everyone who is filled with the Holy Spirit becomes extraordinary and more able to recognize and defeat the wiles of Satan. Wigglesworth reminds us to see how wonderful we are in God and how helpless we are in ourselves;
that if the Holy Spirit has a chance at us, He can make something of us.
Wigglesworth, Smith - Chapter 4 But Then Are There Any Big Men?
"I lived for a season with an ordinary man that everybody thinks was extra-ordinary.
His name: Smith Wigglesworth. Books have been written about this wonderful man.
But is this the truth? Are there any wonderful men? Or is there only One who is wonderful…and his name is Jesus.
Wigglesworth was a working man, a plumber. He left school when he was 8 to go to work pulling turnips. When I met him at the railway station, I took his suitcases for him. My friend Jack brought the car. But Smith Wigglesworth took one look at the car and said, 'What’s the matter with that thing?
I’m not getting in that!' Jack was a young man who had done the best he could and
we’d gone to the railway station to meet the great man, who was as ordinary as any other person, and so ordinary, he wouldn’t even get into God’s provision. Jack apologized, 'Well, I’m sorry for the exhaust smell and everything.' So the big man said, 'Well I’m not getting into that thing!' So I suggested, 'Well look, we can get a bus, brother, if you prefer it.'
I began to explain, 'There are 2 buses, both have the same destination on the front, Huthwaite. And we don’t want the 101, we need the 106.' But at that moment, the 101 drove up and Wigglesworth said, 'Huthwaite!' And he stepped on the wrong bus. Well what can you do when the man of God makes his mistake? He gets on the wrong bus.
All I could do was get on and pay his fare and when we got off the bus, we had as far to walk as if we’d never got on it! That’s all right for ordinary people, but you don’t really expect great men to do things like that! Or are there any great men? Or do we all make our mistakes? Are we all ordinary?
Well, I slept in the same bedroom with Smith Wigglesworth. He made all the same sort of noises everybody else makes. My wife washed his clothes. Why? Because they were dirty. My friend did his finances. I don’t know; could he spell? Could he write? Could he read? Could he add? He left school at 8. He was a man of the Spirit, but he was certainly NOT what you’d term an educated man. I believe in later life, his wife, Polly, taught him the rudiments of reading, maybe of writing too. I think of all the hustle and hassles the people make about this so-called 'great man,' yet he was as ordinary as any other man...
He was blessed of God, wonderfully blessed of God in his ordinary-ness. For a number of years he conducted the Pentecostal Cheatham Street Easter Meetings. Impressive. It was a regular thing; Wigglesworth would convene the meetings. In one session he said, '
All those who believe God is here, put your hand up.' They did. 'All those who believe
God is going to move mightily tonight, put 2 hands up.' They did, and God moved mightily. But then it became a formula. God isn’t a formula. 'Name it and claim it. Confess it and possess it.' When God says it, it works. When you turn God into a formula, nothing happens.
Well it became a kind of a formula.
I once saw a man come out for healing and Wigglesworth took his fist and hit him hard in the stomach. The man doubled up. I thought, 'Oh God, if that man needed healing when he came out, he needs it now!'
But what do you do when the big man is in charge? When the big man says, 'I’m not dealing with the sickness, I’m dealing with the devil!' Now of course the big man said it so nobody dares to answer and nobody dares to question.
But then, are there any big men? Or is there a place where all men have feet of clay, where all men at some time trespass?
Is this not why we need the ministry of the Body? Is this not the failure of the one-man show that we live to the big man and dare not say anything because the big man is this BIG MAN. We live to him, and we dare not question him.
And so his ordinariness is covered up. Not many know that Wigglesworth, the healer (although he himself declared, 'God heals, not me!') was plagued with gallstones.
Jimmy Salter, his son-in-law, often had to help him to meetings near the end of his life when he’d go out with a condition of bleeding. He would go into a meeting and God would heal others whilst he himself was not healed. His own daughter, Alice, when she came back from Africa, was deaf as the result of fever. And Alice would have a huge ear trumpet, no little thing like you put in your ear today, but a fearsome trumpet that came right out and it was an embarrassment to her father. I’ve heard him say, 'Alice!' 'Yes?' 'Have you got the cases? Have you got the cases?' 'Faces? Who’s faces?' she said. 'No! Not faces—cases!' And you could tell she was an embarrassment, that huge trumpet. Maybe it was like Paul’s thorn in the flesh, to safeguard God’s glory.
Well, the glory of God demands NOT wonderful people, but the very opposite.
It demands that the people who are ordinary must recognize how ordinary they are, that they might abide in Truth, which is the glory of God."
"Know who you are. Matthew 4 and Luke 4 record the temptation of Jesus in the
One of the most amazing aspects of those temptations was that Satan
began 2 of the 3 temptations with the words, “If thou be the Son of God.”
Many people have missed this point. The real temptation was Satan’s attempt to
get Jesus to doubt who He was. That’s the same way he attacked Adam and Eve. The
serpent told Eve that if she would eat the forbidden fruit, she would be like
God (Gen. 3:5). The truth was that she was already like God, but she didn’t know
it. The first Adam sinned, because he didn’t know who he really was. The 2nd
Adam, Jesus, didn’t sin, because He did know who he was. Knowing your true
identity in Christ is one of the greatest defenses you can possibly have
against temptation (and any intimidation in life, whether self talk or other)...
The real temptation was never about turning stones into bread. It was Satan’s attempt to manipulate Jesus into doubting His Father’s Word and doing something to prove who He was. Satan was trying to find and exploit any insecurity in Jesus.
When you were a kid, I’m sure someone at some time dared you to do something stupid. The real issue wasn’t whether or not you could do it but whether you were 'afraid' to do it. And sad to say, many of us took the dare and did something that hurt us or shamed us just to prove that we weren’t. All we really succeeded in proving was that we feared their disapproval so much that we weren’t willing to do what was right. The truly fearless response would have been to walk away, secure in who we were, earning their respect through character rather than performance...
The Word (of God in scripture) is powerful—use it. Jesus countered every temptation of the devil with the Word. Think about it, Jesus was the Word, and everything He said would have been Scripture and more than sufficient to rebuke the devil. Yet He would say, 'It is written' then He quoted God’s Word. If it was important for Jesus to quote the Word, it’s even more important for us to do the same. We must know God’s Word to effectively overcome temptation. That goes back to being prepared; you can’t quote scripture you haven’t learned, and there isn’t any power in what you don’t know or understand...
Selfishness (self-centeredness/self-preoccupation) is the beachhead of Satan...Speaking the Word is so important...Temptation is tied to your thought life...Understand...and... overcome...temptation."

"Don't ever believe the condemnation of the devil, that you are unworthy (if you have repented to Jesus). You ARE worthy. You have been redeemed by the blood of the lamb. Why do My people NOT believe in Me? Why do MY people reject Me (My word in scripture/My work on the cross for them)?"
(One's worthiness is based on what JESUS DID and never on what we do or do not do.)

Finding Your Power in God's Lavish Love by Heidi
No matter how great we are, we do not naturally deserve to be called sons and daughters of God.
Even if we achieved academic honors in school, the highest promotions in our jobs and
every other qualification this world could possibly offer, we would never merit such a gift.
Only His free and lavish love gives us the most beautiful title of all - not doctor, not lawyer, not apostle, but son or daughter. We are the family God went out and found. He was so determined to call us sons and daughters that He suffered on a cross and died. Jesus and His Father are one. Whatever Jesus does, the Father does.
They act together, and the cross expresses the unity of their love for us. Jesus died so we could be brothers and sisters to one another. Before that, we could not be one family.
I have been beaten up, shot at and lied about. People have even tried to strangle me. I am not afraid.
To this day I can walk boldly into gangs of armed thugs and tell them to stop in the name of Jesus.
I expect them to drop their knives. Generally they turn surprisingly nice. Sometimes they look at me and apologize.
Where did this confidence come from? It came from knowing the Father loves me. Because I truly know that I am loved, I am not afraid. God wants your ministry to flow from the realization that you are a beloved child of God. In that place you don't worry too much about how people see you. You don't worry too much about whether they are nice or mean. You don't even worry about whether they love you or hate you. You don't worry because you're simply going to love them and love Him. This comes from knowing who He is and what He thinks of you. This is what it means to grasp you are a child of God. But what if we make messy mistakes? What if it turns out we are still flawed people who can be difficult to get along with? Will He keep on loving us then?
We have taken in thousands of children to live with us over the years; one of them was a particular rascal. If he could find something wrong to do, he would do it.
I asked God what to do about this one. God told me to love him. I sensed the Lord saying He wanted me to give him some time and pray every day for him. So that is what I and the other caretakers did. For a long time we could see no progress. Despite everything, this boy was always very charismatic, and after a while he managed to move to the United Kingdom.
Recently, when I was speaking in the U.K., I saw this spiritual son again. At once I was startled to see how powerfully the presence of God was resting on him. When he came up to me, he started shaking and weeping in my arms. In broken English he said, "Thank you, Mama. For not stop loving me."
Our joy in this son was not so much in seeing him graduate from school, though we were very happy when he did. Our joy was seeing him filled with the presence of God. Our joy was seeing him come home to the Father's house and step into the spirit of adoption.
That boy - now a man - knows who he is. He is a son. He knows better than most that God loves him no matter how many times he might have lied, stolen, beaten up innocents or committed adultery. He is loved because of the incredible grace of God that comes down to call each of us sons and daughters. None of us deserve it. We simply have it.
Your heavenly Father loves you the same way. He wants you, no matter what you do or how you fail.
This is the love He spoke over us when He sent His Son. It is what Jesus poured out of the cross.
It is the thing the church must demonstrate to the world. Love so lavish can never die.
Because of this love, we have become children of God. Even if we do not yet believe it, this is what we truly are (1 John 3:1).
We have had children who, for the longest time, would not believe they are truly loved.
This particular son had been with us for 14 years before he actually got it. That is a lot of waiting and a lot of pain.
If the Holy Spirit ever touches people in such a way that they realize they are sons or daughters instantly, we ought to celebrate it as a mighty miracle - because sometimes it takes 14 years.
You are a son or a daughter right now - today. Your real identity is in this truth.
It doesn't matter what people do or do not call you. It doesn't matter where you do or do not sit.
You are a son. You are a daughter. There is no more precious position to which you might ever aspire.
To be a son or daughter of God also means you are royalty (having a birth certificate as His adopted child, His spiritual DNA, plus a passport as a citizen in His kingdom).
Burke, Vikki - Entrapment of Kingdoms in
Conflict - 2/2008 magazine editorial
Can we "just ignore Satan's accusations and go on with our lives? Not when we understand that the Greek word accuse means 'to ensnare or to fasten a noose.' Satan couldn't lay a finger on Jesus unless He said something that gave the devil access into His life. Satan knew he needed words that sere contrary to truth with which to hang Jesus (as he had hung Judas). Remember, Proverbs 18:21 says that death and life are in the power of the tongue. Furthermore, Proverbs 6:2 (Basic English version) says, 'You are taken as in a net by the words of your mouth; the sayings of your lips have overcome you.' That's why every response out of Jesus' mouth agreed with God's Word...Jesus never got upset or gave His opinion. Instead, He pointed them (the accusers) to God's Word rather than engaging in their debate." http://dennisburkeministries.org/

You have a place to fill. The Body (of Christ) will not be complete until you begin to be what He called you to be. Be you and believe! Your fingerprints are different from anyone else's...billions and billions of fingers but none like yours! God has His stamp on you. Your voice, your eyes, you are unique and special to God.

"Those who find their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake will find it. Matthew 10:39 NRSV
For example, if you feel bad or wanted to indulge at dinnertime you would go to a doctor to feel better or eat more food.
But if the Holy Spirit had more influence over your life you may be surprised to hear Him say, 'Trust Me for your healing and food cravings.'
The next level in Christ requires each of us to recognize the life we describe as 'normal' is abnormal in the eyes of the Spirit. I am not saying you must ignore pain or sacrifice all physical desires. I am saying if the unseen realm is not influencing us more than the physical world very little will change in our life...The only person Who can take you into that place is the Holy Ghost."

My Cross By Meri Ford - 2/2014 - "'My cross' is the cross of MY humiliation...the fact that I am totally helpless to do anything but meet my own needs, and that it is the very essence of my humanity apart from the working of the Spirit of God in me. Humiliation comes from the word 'human'. My humanity and the power in it to meet my own needs not only is greater than my ability to change it, it is totally destructive to me and to every other human being I contact. It leads to death! So when I take up 'my cross' it means owning my own humiliation, the total inability to change my nature" (apart from God).

One of the most important weapons of warfare we have in any battle is our God-given identity.
When we allow God to reveal to us who we truly are, and we choose to believe Him, we can live from that identity and trust God to back it up and bring it about. When we know who we are to God, with God, and for God, we can enter any situation or circumstance confident that we will see victory, because we are walking out the destiny God created us for, called us to, and has empowered us to step into. God-given identity is so powerful that the enemy will do all He can to come against it.
He tried to attack Jesus’ identity in the wilderness and get Him to question if He really was God’s Son.
But Jesus refused to be shaken. He refused to let go of the identity His Father had declared over Him.
He was so rooted and grounded in who He was to, for, and with the Father that at times He simply declared His true God-given identity and the enemy was completely over-powered by it (John 18:6).
[EVERY thing we do NOT let go (relinquish) becomes the battle
ground for the devil, allowing him
to touch what we love too much to become
a "general" for God in that area where HE could have used us.
We need to be meek and quick to obey, to become a deliverer, like Ester, at the risk of losing our family (like Job), to survive the consuming firery Glory. Sometimes, failure to act and even silence can become a travesty, thwarting/aborting the reason for which we were created. Lord, please expose our disobediences that we may repent.
Then guardian angel, please prod us, to henceforth, both hear clearly and obey promptly.]

SID: You know Rick...You realize that you're literally dressed to kill. You said the mind is so important.
Would you pray for people that their mind renewed to the Word of God right now.
RICK: I will, because the mind is where the main (enemy spiritual) attack takes place...
Father, in the name of Jesus, I pray, Lord, right now for people whose mind is under assault, the enemy is trying to pave a road into their mind and to bombard them with lies about their self-image...health...marriage...
Father, I pray that they would listen to the Word of God (spoken to their heart/mind/ears)...
Every one of those (demonic) lies (contradictions to Your holy nature)...
be uprooted and removed from their minds, in the name of Jesus. Amen.
SID: The devil comes at you like a roaring lion...But you have that (protective) shield of faith.
You have the (offensive) sword of the Spirit (the spoken words of God welded in your mouth).
You are dressed to kill. You are more than a conqueror (in the name and power of Jesus Christ).
(Thus we need to continually identify the source of all thoughts,
then filter out all ones that do NOT align with God’s nature, and
reject ones that are/or trigger curses rather than blessings,
subsequently replacing with positives, especially God’s spoken thoughts, the supernatural fuel in our human situations.)
Ogden, Keith -
Demons "either invade your life with temporal substitutes, ways to act like God without letting God work through you, or they invade your life by tempting you to do evil, luring you to behavior and thoughts that break God’s heart. It is a relentless, continuous, constantly escalating battle. Remember, the fruit of the Spirit in you is God’s character translated into human behavior. Yea, Satan hates that!
Remember also, that every fruit of the Spirit exhibits one or more of the characteristics of God’s nature, and each is totally supernatural. None can be demonstrated in the flesh, and the unregenerate man or woman cannot exhibit these fruits.
They cannot even understand them when they see them, for they are spiritually discerned. (1 Corinthians 2:14)
Let’s look at Satan’s first attempt; he tries to make us think that there is no difference between what God produces and what man produces, except perhaps for a little increase in quality.
My brothers and sister, what you must understand is that the sinister minister himself, tries to get us to redefine words, using experience as our base, and then, instead of learning to die (As the Apostle Paul would say, we must die daily) so Jesus can live through us, he makes us think we can produce in the flesh behavior that is close enough to the real thing that God will be satisfied."
demons seem to have a better understanding of who Jesus is than the people do.
In verse 24, the demons say, “I know who you are – You are the Holy One of God!”

New names imparted (especially by God, but also by a new husband) indicates who we are in the eyes of those who behold us. A NEW or CHANGED NAME has spiritual and often legal significance. Both the Catholic and the Jewish community impart new names during specific sacramental ceremonies, plus most all religions and civil authorities add the husband's sir name to the wife's during the wedding ceremony.

I will write upon him My new name. He that has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit
says to the churches."
Revelation 22:4 KJV His (God's) name shall be in their foreheads.
Self worth or identity is also affected by ADOPTION, whether we are adopted or whether we adopt. In fact we have heard of stories where there is an "adoption syndrome" seen in Russian infants adopted by Americans where the children do not allow the parents to parent/love/touch them, somewhat like what one would see with an autistic child.
Romans 8:14-19 KJV Many as are led by
the Spirit of God...are the sons of God.
You have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear. You have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. The Spirit Itself bears witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God.
If children, then heirs. Heirs of God. Joint heirs with Christ...
We suffer with Him, that we may be also glorified together.
I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
The earnest expectation of the creature (our body, mind and spirit) waits for the manifestation of the sons of God (the Holy Spirit would finish what He has begun in our lives.)
Romans 8:23 KJV Ourselves..have the first fruits of the (Holy) Spirit...We ourselves groan inside ourselves, waiting for ADOPTION, that is, the redemption of our body.
Romans 9:4 KJV Who are the Israelites to whom pertains the ADOPTION, the glory,
the covenants, the giving of the law, the service of God, and the promises?
Romans 9:8 KJV - The children of the flesh are NOT the children of God.
The children of the promise are counted for the seed (sons/heirs/blood relative),
Romans 9:9 KJV - that the purpose of God according to election might stand, not of works, but of Him who calls.
(Isaac was a son both of blood and promise, due to Abraham's faith in God. The other son was of blood, but out of Sarah's attempts to fix her infertility, and resulted in the birth of the Arab nations, competition and hatred between Jew and Arab to this day. The birth of Ishmael was God's permissive will and not His choice for the blood line through which Jesus would be born. Abraham was both the spiritual father and the physical dad to the Jews. His claim to fame was NOT in the genetic lineage, but in the spiritual lineage. God's kingdom is a spiritual one, not a Jewish one. Our adoption is spiritual. However,
being a Messianic Jew might be God's delight. Remember, God always looks at the heart. Law always handicaps.)
Galations 4:4-6 KJV - When the fullness of time4 was come, God sent forth His Son, made of a woman, made under the law, to redeem them that were under the law, that we might receive the ADOPTION of sons (and daughters).
Because you are sons, God has sent forth the Spirit of His Son into your hearts, crying, Abba, Father.
Ephesians 1:2-7 KJV - Grace be to you and peace from God our Father and from the Lord Jesus Christ. Blessed be God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, Who has blessed us with ALL spiritual blessings in heavenly places in Christ. He has chosen us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love.
(He) predestined us to (have the opportunity of) ADOPTION by (receiving) Jesus Christ (as our Messiah), according to the good pleasure of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace. He has made us accepted in the beloved, in Whom we have redemption through His blood and the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of His grace. (Spiritual insight: When we say yes to Jesus as Messiah, then God says yes to us and becomes our dad. God gives us a bit of His Holy Spirit as a confirmation of His adoption. The heavenly relationship begins. As we mature spiritually, our self image will blossom. There will be improvements in body, mind and spirit, as we know, love and trust God more and more

One's Being Responsible for/Contributing to Another's Problems
Hereditary disease has the potential of attacking descendents.
Additionally individuals often pass on sexually transmitted diseases to their partners/mates and/or offspring.
In Genesis we see where Adam and Eve (as parents of not only their own children but of the entire human race) became
guilty/responsible for/contributed to the harm of all their descendents by allowing sin/death/disease to enter their own flesh and blood...It is horrific enough to suffer for one's own sins, but worse still to affect/afflict one's children. Additionally Eve had to suffer the resulting condemnation/accusation of enlisting Adam in her disobedience. Perhaps God told them about Jesus; perhaps not. Perhaps they did not receive forgiveness (and reunion with God in heaven) until Christ went to the dead and preached to them just before He rose from the grave. Luckily we do not have to wait. We can go to Christ right now, repent and receive forgiveness, peace of mind, plus legal permanent membership in God's spiritual family. Separation from God will allow Satan to get a foot in the door of our lives. Quick, drop to your knees and leap into the arms of God. He is waiting for you...
Remember; as a Christian, it is not our reputation that is at stake; it's the Lord's reputation!
We do NOT need to protect our human reputation. Rather, our human container of self-importance needs to be displaced, Lord, with Your Oil/Water/Oil/Spirit/Heart/Will/Importance/Loveliness/Mind/Goals/Plans/Power.
One of our purposes in life is to reveal Christ to this generation. Christ went about revealing His Father.
The disciples went about revealing the Holy Spirit. The kingdom of God is not a place, but a Person inside of us,

Ferrell, Emerson & Ana Mendez Experiences in Heaven
2 CD set
Self sufficiency/reliance apparently is an enemy of God; God wants to infill us with His sufficiency.
Ferrell, Ana Mendez + Emerson Spiritual Authority 4 CD's http://www.voiceofthelight.com
DVD #3 is marvelous! It shares the testimony of Will, a nobody. Nobody noticed him for 15 years.
After being prayed for, he and his son were released from generational bondage and captivity
in a demonic spiritual place called forgetfulness.
Same testimony is found in Ana's book Regions of Captivity chapter 6 The Different Regions of Captivity.
Will was trapped in a spiritual "place of infinite loneliness, sadness, abandonment and rejection...
where the devil imprisons people in order for them to live forgotten by others."
Will's ancestor had "made a covenant to lock his future generations in" a chest of "solitary confinement."
Ferrell, Ana Mendez - Trained to Reign - DVD - http://www.voiceofthelight.com - excellent
The entire book of Revelation (See chapter 1:1-2) trains Holy Spirit baptized born-again Christians to reign in their spiritual kingdoms. God made us kings & priests. We will miss our destiny, if we do not comprehend this.
If I am not "reigning," I am missing my call, purposed before the foundation of the world; God needs to reformat our brains/thinking.
Ferrell, Ana Mendez - Entering into His Fullness DVD http://www.voiceofthelight.com excellent
Determined by the steps we are willing to take and by the degree we are willing to sacrifice, we grow into spiritual authority (over the enemy, in Jesus' name). We need to quit putting up with/allowing problems, to be fed-up enough to act, to have nothing human to retreat to when cornered, and to never quit. Never. We need to (die to self and family) and to declare war on the devil. The devil will attack whatever/ whoever we are holding onto.

http://sigler.org/hinn/ - Willie is brother of Benny Hinn www.tbn.org/about/newsletter/0005/000510.htm
Free DVD of Benny Hinn interview with brother aired on northeast coast TV 11/3-4/2006 www.bennyhinn.org
Significance of interview is that once we ask Jesus to be our savior, Lord and baptizer,
then the kingdom of God moves into our body. When the King lives in our body, the kingdom of God has come. It is not in heaven. It is here in us. We begin to be less and less; the Holy Spirit begins to be more and more. There comes a time when there is no room left for neediness. It becomes impossible for us to be bound. Excepting Adam/Eve/Enoch, Jesus Christ is the mold/template/blueprint/example/ mentor/model for all mankind, the first/most perfect of a new race/breed/kind of human for which God intended all along for us to become. Jesus not only illustrated how we were to accomplish this, but he also opened the door to its possibility, by His birth/death/resurrection/ascending to heaven/sending the Holy Spirit. This is NOT something of the past, nor something of the future; it is a now reality, for anyone who chooses it. The evil spirit needs a body in which to operate best; likewise, the Holy Spirit works best in a body - yours and mine. That is His joy. His delight. His original plan when God created the universe! It is not a necessity nor a need; yet it is an emotional need, His emotional need, His design, His requirement. His best for us. His prayer for us is to choose Him, to ask Him to accomplish in us His perfect plan.
Father God, in the name of Your son, Jesus Christ, come into my life; forgive and remove permanently all my sins and the sins of my forefathers; be my savior; be my Lord; baptize me with Your Holy Spirit; grow me up to be the person You created me to be; let me be a blessing to You; I thank You in advance; amen.

(2) thus to be Christ's flesh in his/her generation and (3) thus to heal/deliver/do miracles/raise the dead.
(Both the evil spirits and the Holy Spirit want to dwell in human flesh; let us choose aright. God has not only created us,
He has also chosen us; let us choose Him in return. He has entrusted/endowed us with His most precious jewels/treasures/power. Let us be aware of our inheritance/our spiritual genealogy/our calling/purpose/destiny in life.
Disown all lies of who you were or are. The only real/effective/spiritual truth is who you are in Christ Jesus.
A born again Christian is a fish out of water, powerless without the baptism in the Holy Spirit, and powerless to act without the knowledge that each of us has the NOW power to do what Christ did yesterday. Put fear under your feet and act.
Ndifon is a mentor as how to minister to others. His mentoring will give simplicity, courage, and spiritual muscle to act NOW. All healing/ deliverance ministries are wonderful, but this ministry is a cut above all the rest in empowering others to operate in the power of the Holy Spirit. Take your vacation week and spend it at one of Ndifon's Miracle Training week long courses. It could be a turning point in your life.)

Wright, Henry - Accusing Spirits -
- Thomaston, Georgia, USA 30286
Audio cassettes - set of 12 - Superior content but inferior sound track - Wright says that when the mirror speaks negatively to us, we can respond by replying that we will have a new body in heaven. God put us on earth "as is". We will have to put up with us, until the Holy Spirit gets His working papers to clean up our lives. Accusing evil spirits, voices in our heads, GO under the feet of Jesus, IN THE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST, for now we recognize you. Be reminded that condemnation is of Satan and that conviction is of God. Condemnation "puts us down" and demoralizes us. Conviction draws us to Christ our forgiver and helper. In scripture, Christ told the woman caught in adultery, "Neither do I condemn you. Go and sin no more." God's heart and nature melts our heart with kindness, whereas Satan's heart and nature destroys every relationship, every mind, every soul, every body.

We find this negative mindset too often in the therapy office.
Yes, we do need to repent, even daily, but our focus, our driveness, is to be on HIM and allowing Him in us to leak out a fragrance that will recharge the atmosphere with His electricity, His power, His mind. Our attention is NOT to be on ME but on HE. (Holy Spirit, I want and ask You to be my primary counselor. Lord, I repent on the me, myself, and I, self preoccupation. Lord, I ask Your Holy Spirit to help redirect my focus to Jesus Christ, my Lord and Savior. Lord help me to hear and recognize Your voice. Help me to obey Your voice. Lord, Help me to resist and reject incorrect unhealthy thinking, especially the "I" thoughts, like, I am no good, I always say/do thus and so, I cannot, I-I-I.
Also, please bring me at least one close friend to help me in this regard. I thank You, in Jesus name.)

"I have met those who believed that they were the anti-Christ. They thought they were the son of Satan.
One man believed he had only half of a soul. Others believed that they committed the unpardonable sin.
Many have told me that they were beyond redemption. One lady told me she had sex with demons.
(It wasn’t enough to battle lustful thoughts like most of us; she had to make her sin even worse than it was.)
Others thought they committed gross sins that even the blood of Christ could not cleanse them. They were beyond the ability for God to forgive. (Tom calls these delusions, which sometimes they are, but at other times demonic activity is real in the lives of patients. However, because Tom understands spiritual warfare, he is often able to help free victims from mental illness, regardless of the root causes)...
Caleb silenced the people before Moses and said, 'We should go up and take possession of the land, for we can certainly do it.' But the men who had gone up with him said, 'We can't attack those people; they are stronger than we are.'
They spread among the Israelites a bad report about the land they had explored.
They said, 'The land we explored devours those living in it. All the people we saw there are (giants) of great size.
We saw the Nephilim there [the descendants (of fallen angels and humans) of Anak come from the Nephilim ].
We seemed like grasshoppers in our own eyes, and we looked the same to them.' (Numbers 13:30-14:1)
Notice their problem! They seemed like grasshoppers in their own eyes.
They had no confidence in themselves to defeat the enemy. There is something positive to be said about self esteem.
There is nothing wrong to have self confidence, if the confidence is rooted in God’s Word.
Pride is when you think you can accomplish great things on your own without God."

"Now to Him who is able to do exceedingly abundantly beyond all that we ask or think, according to the power that works within us, to Him be the glory in the church and in Christ Jesus to all generations forever and ever. Amen. (Ephesians 3:20-21 NASB)...
We all need to let go and let God do exceedingly, superabundantly, beyond any measurable earthly instrument is able to calculate. Super beyond what any Einstein brain tissue can understand. We need to not just think outside the box but go beyond by looking back inside and releasing (venting) His faith and power that is already resident inside of us
by the deposit of the Holy Ghost! Quit looking way out yonder for Him…He is within...
This is what brings all the glory and honor to our King!!! When we go beyond our self (brain tissue) always defaulting to it’s own ceiling limit of circumstantial experiences and the dreaded paralysis of analysis (i.e. Unbelief)!"

The Scriptures here are pointing us into a mysterious portal of what true spiritual freedom and liberty is all about and it is the 'Wasteland Intoxication Effect' ! It is in the place of nothing (i.e. wasteland) that He meets us and brings us back into His original pattern of creation...Abba is wooing us outside the camp of the old wineskin and into the new...So be bold and courageous to go outside the camp and surrender totally to Him! He will sustain you by possessing you with the atmospherics of His Glory realm as is seen here in Proverbs 8! It is in this wasteland of nothing that actually is the greatest portal to the true Spiritual realm."

- "Shortly after he returned to Wales in 1904, the Welsh revival broke out.
He became involved in it and worked at discipling new converts. However, he and
his friends sensed spiritual needs in their own lives. And so in the summer of
1906 they spent their summer holiday at the Llandrindod Wells convention (a
Welsh equivalent to the English Keswick Conference) where Howells made a pivotal
From the first meeting, Howells was deeply moved.
The realization dawned on him that the
was a person,
and not an ‘influence.’ In his words:
'He said to me, "As the Savior had a body, so I dwell in the cleansed temple of the believer. I am a Person. I am God, and I am come to ask you to give your body to Me that I may work through it. I need a body for My temple, but it must belong to Me without reserve, for 2 persons with different wills can never live in the same body. Will you give me yours? But if I come in, I come as God, and you must go out. I shall not mix Myself with your self."
This precipitated a 5-day struggle in Mr. Howells.
From the 1st, he realized it was an unconditional surrender, of which he said:
'I had received a sentence of death, as really as a prisoner in the dock. I had lived in my body for 26 years, and could I easily give it up....I wept for days. I lost 7 pounds....
Nothing is more real to me than the process I went through for that whole week.
The Holy Spirit went on dealing with me, exposing the root of my nature which was self, and you can only get out of a thing what is in its root. Sin was canceled, and it wasn’t sin He was dealing with; it was self'...
Some of the things he (Howells) came to a point of surrender over:
1. His love of money: 'The Lord told him that He would take out of his nature all taste for money and any ambition for the ownership of money.'
2. His choice in making a home: 'I saw I could never give my life to another person, to live to (for) that one alone."
3. His ambition: 'Supposing he had a mission in a town and another mission opened in the same place; if there was jealousy between the 2, and it was better for the town only to have one, then it would be his which would have to go.'
4. His right to a good reputation: 'As he was thinking of men of the Bible who were full of the Holy Ghost, and particularly John the Baptist, the Lord said to him, "Then I may live through you the kind of life I lived through them."' Finally on Friday of that week he came through.
The book continues with stories of how God worked through this man teaching him faith and intercession as he prayed for the sick, prayed for the salvation of friends and acquaintances, gave up raising his own son to work as a missionary, traveled without any money in his pocket, bought estates, established a Bible school, and prayed for international events, especially during the World War II. And all the while God also continued to deal with his self-life...
In all his experiences and training, the Lord had a 2-fold purpose – the blessing of the needy, and the transformation of His servant. 'The Holy Ghost took me through grade after grade. The process of changing one’s nature (replacing the self nature with the divine nature) was very slow and bitter. In my boyhood days the strictest man I knew was my schoolmaster, but how often I said that the Holy Ghost was a thousand times more strict – the schoolmaster could only judge by actions, but the Holy Ghost was judging by the motive. The Lord would always corner me, with yet another test. After having been made acutely aware of the my weaknesses and inability to fulfill, I would laugh and say, 'Yes Lord, you pull me through.' This was the way the Spirit 'Who never pushes' drew him with bands of love. Shame and ridicule were also lessons contained in the textbook of spiritual learning. For a time the Spirit would not allow him to wear a hat when going out – something unheard of in that day. On another occasion he was called to live as the Nazarite described in Numbers 6. 'I told the Holy Spirit I knew of no one who had been called to do this such a thing in this generation, But, as always, He insisted in getting at the real reason for my unwillingness. “Tell me the truth,” He said, “Why are you not willing to walk like Samuel, or John the Baptist?”' Rees knew he had to go through with it; it was not just 'kicking against the pricks.' As usual, he had to say, 'Pull me through,' and I needed pulling...
The Holy Ghost said to us, ‘You must prove to me that you love the souls of the Africans...more than you love your own son.' Many a time I had preached about Abraham offering up Isaac. How little I had realized what it meant to him...
His aunt and uncle raised him as their own, even changing his name to Samuel Rees, and the Lord was rich in blessing. He accepted Christ at 12, later attended Oxford University. Eventually, when the Howells returned from the mission field, he assumed the calling that was on him for ministry, and worked side by side with his father."

Jackson, John Paul 3/2009 -
The day God made you perfect -
"What Satan did - The issue is that we have an enemy who wants us to live as far from freedom as possible. He’s wanted this from the beginning, when he saw that God had created 2 people who were, in every sense of the term, absolutely perfect. God shaped them with His fingers. They were lovely in form and in spirit and carried His likeness in a way that possibly no one has experienced other than Jesus Himself. They walked in perfect union with Him and carried His authority.
So Satan worked to deceive them, and by the end of the day, human perfection had become nothing but legend...The earth and everything upon it began to warp.
What God did - For millennia, Satan ruled seemingly unhindered, covering the once-perfect earth in darkness and sin. But then one day, in a single day, the Perfection of Heaven willingly submitted Himself unto the same death that had taken His perfect ones in the beginning; He then descended into Hell, held out His hand and took back what Adam and Eve had given Satan in the Garden. This is what Jesus did for us. He came to make us perfect once again - and the unbelievable thing is that He succeeded! Somehow, in the midst of our faults, He calls us perfect, flawless (Song of Solomon 4:7, 6:9), white as snow (Isaiah 1:18). But we have such a hard time believing this! Why? Because the devil will do anything he can to rule over us again (1 Peter 5:8). After Jesus’ death and resurrection, Satan, who was and is utterly defeated, devoted himself to doing what he had done in the beginning - trying to destroy the perfection God created. Therefore, it takes daily decisions on our part not to believe what he insists is true. Be alert. The devil will play with your head. He will try to convince you that your sin is too great for the blood of Jesus to cover. He will confuse you into thinking that his way is the only way; that you are the defeated one; that you are ugly and flawed and could never, ever possibly be what God wants. After years of believing these lies, it is war to believe the opposite. It is a struggle to put 2 and 2 together and realize that Jesus did not go to the cross for nothing. The perfection of God gives us the opportunity to see ourselves and our lives as Heaven sees them - not faultless, but absolutely perfect, because He is able to make us perfect. The perfection I’m talking about means that we can present ourselves, humble and empty before Him, and He can fill us up. It means resting in Him, as His perfection comes and rubs out our cracks and crevices and makes us whole. As I recently wrote on Coffee Talk, some of us have more cracks than others, but there are no cracks that the Spirit of God cannot rub out. Passionate and persistent pursuit of Him will be rewarded.
To witness His perfection in your life, there are 2 things you must do. 1st, supply you, in humility and without pretense, and 2nd, be willing to change the way you think. The rest, to His great joy and eagerness, is up to Him. You will be amazed at how these 2 decisions change your life."
Eckhardt, John basically says the same thing. TAKE your spiritual inheritance NOW! Scripture says that the violent violently take captivity captive. http://www.impactnetwork.net/pdf/TheKingdom.pdf
"Today, people look up to heaven looking for something to happen when God is saying (showing us in scripture,) My Kingdom is right here, right now. When you hear the Gospel of the Kingdom of God, Seize it! Grab hold of it and press toward it. Don’t miss it!"

Joshua, TB Warfare Is Necessary for Victory
"Jesus never begged anyone to believe in HIM. HE knew that integrity cannot be proven; it must be discerned...Wisdom and the grace of God cannot be taken from you because it is not given by man...Do not lose heart. God sometimes allows HIS children to experience persecution in order to toughen (strengthen) them for the greater heights ahead and the challenges that follow...In my own case, persecution has always been a tonic to my anointing. The more the persecution we receive, the greater the opportunity we have to move closer to God for strength and renewal, knowing that if gold must be worth its sort/kind, I mean, if gold must be gold, it must pass through fire. If a clay pot is to be strong, it must go through intense heat. As gold is tested by fire, so also, human character is tested in the furnace of humiliation. Glory be to God, the more we are persecuted, the more we attract God’s attention He who desires triumph/victory must be ready to embrace war...Jephthah...was an example of the rise of a man to prominence from rejection (Judges 11). He was persecuted and denied the right to belong. God often humbles those whom HE designs to exalt and makes them the stone the builders reject which finally becomes the head of the cornerstone. Joseph, Moses and David - the three most prominent shepherds of Israel were all rejected and persecuted by men before they were called of God to great offices. This is how God prepares HIS servants for the service HE designs them for and makes their trouble work for their advancement...We are not in any way suggesting that we have arrived. Far be it, this is our humble way of thanking God for not allowing our enemies to triumph over us. ‘Blessed are you when men shall revile you and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely for My sake. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad for great is your reward
in Heaven; for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you’ (Matthew 5:10-11)."

MacNutt, Francis Deliverance from Evil Spirits Chapter
Freeing a Person from Spirits of Trauma pg 191 www.christianhealingmin.org
An evil spirit "Leaves very easily. As forgiveness and inner healing happen, (an evil) spirit is easily dealt with...
On occasion I have prayed from the platform at a large, public healing service to free people from the spirits of trauma whose names came to me in prayer. I have done this calmly, and usually there is little audible response. Afterward anywhere between 10 and 20 people out of a congregation of say, 200 will tell me they felt something quietly leave. The following is from a letter I received from a woman recently:
'When you prayed on Saturday night for the spirits of grief and rejection to leave in the name of Jesus, I felt something moving through my body each time and out both arms (which were raised in prayer). It was awesome. At the same time I became aware of great peace all through my body.'"

Six Page Article by David Maritn on the Mountaintop and the Shining Ones
"David shares his testimony of being led to study on 'Shining' all the way back to 1978.
It is an amazing story that is full of divine intervention and sets the stage for where the ministry and the kingdom of God is headed. The key events of this story happened in 1998-99." http://62485.netministry.com/images/Mountaintop.pdf
"In walking around the (air plane) wreckage she (a widow) was attracted to a window blown out of the airplane. As she picked it up she said, 'It was like electricity was flowing though it.'
As soon as she said that, I felt impressed in my spirit with, 'It is a prophetic picture of a window I'm opening in heaven, and I am going to pour out My spirit'”...
"In the dream I (a widow) saw the Bible story of Elisha's bones portrayed with a dead man thrown into a cave onto a pile of bones and he came alive. I suddenly sat up on my bed. As I did God said to me, 'There is a similar resurrection anointing at the grave site on the mountaintop where the great men are buried.'
"'I again had a similar out-of-body experience. Again the anointing was incredible,
but this time God told me what I was seeing. It was 'self and spirit fighting.' He said, 'They have been fighting since the beginning. But I am sending David Martin to that grave sight he told you about, and I am going to release to him a resurrection anointing that will cause spirit to overtake self.'”

Saint Antony - http://www.fordham.edu/halsall/basis/VITA-ANTONY.html - "49. But when he (Antony) saw himself beset by many, and not suffered to withdraw himself according to his intent as he wished, fearing because of the signs (miracles, healing, casting out of demons) which the Lord wrought by him, that either he should be puffed up, or that some other should think of him above what he ought to think, he considered and set off to go into the upper Thebaid, among those to whom he was unknown. Having received loaves from the brethren, he sat down by the bank of the river, looking whether a boat would go by, that, having embarked thereon, he might go up the river with them. While he was considering these things, a voice came to him from above, 'Antony, whither goest thou and wherefore?' But he no way disturbed, but as he had been accustomed to be called [16a] often thus, giving ear to it, answered, saying, 'Since the multitude permit me not to be still, I wish to go into the upper Thebaid on account of the many hindrances that come upon me here, and especially because they demand of me things beyond my power.' But the voice said unto him, 'Even though you should go into the Thebaid, or even though, as you have in mind, I you should go down to the Bucolia , you will have to endure more, aye, double the amount of toil. But if you wish really to be in quiet, depart now into the inner desert.' When Antony said, 'Who will show me the way for I know it not?' immediately the voice pointed out to him Saracens about to go that way. So Antony approached, and drew near them, and asked that he might go with them into the desert. They, as though they had been commanded by Providence, received him willingly. Having journeyed with them 3 days and nights, he came to a very lofty mountain, and at the foot of the mountain ran a clear spring, whose waters were sweet and very cold; outside there was a plain and a few uncared-for palm trees."

You do NOT necessarily have demon problems but rather thought problems. Rejection needs a going away party;
rejection means it is time to be promoted. God's inspirations/wind/Holy Spirit enters into you, for you to exhale into others. When we operate at or flow with a low frequency, we are operating on demonic levels, on obsolete technologies.
We need to download new upper bandwidths and operate on God's upper levels. When church folk refuse to take their rightful place, the devil will.

God showed Mark that there are 7 prayers one can say to remove all legal rights (anchors) to demons; one needs to repent 1st prior to one's eviction of demons. If the faith, hope, and/or love of Corinthians is missing in one's heart, then that exposes the existence of the opposite, a demonic presence, negative emotions/feelings that rise up, grip, control, and/or push.

Sharper Than a 2 Edged Sword -
Our transformation from insecurity/inadequacy to audacity/adequacy is often based on our recognition of the fact that our salvation affects the human spirit rather than the soul or body, at least initially, plus the fact that we are an eternal never dying spirit having a soul and living in a body.

(Thus we are like a caterpillar who sheds its encasement, acquires wings, and flies.
For many, this mental turn around may occur when one requests/expects/receives/takes Holy Spirit baptism.
Spiritual conception (engagement to Jesus) occurs when Yeshua becomes our savior from sin and Lord of our Life.
Spiritual birth (our Pentecost/conformation/wedding) occurs when Holy Spirit fills and unites with human spirit.
There may be a gestation time, between our repentance + inviting Jesus to be Lord, and our personal Pentecost the same as experienced by the disciples. Spiritual sanctification begins in earnest after our spiritual marriage, and lasts until death, in sync with our vows.)

Allowing Others to Bully, Define or Manipulate Us?
[PDF] THE BULLY PRINCIPLE - Satan’s Underground by Lauren Stratford -
"Maybe you never thought of Satan (or any evil spirit) as a bully. You may remember (be experiencing) the bully in school who delighted (delights) in being cruel to a smaller or weaker person? The bully never picks on a person his own size for fear of losing. He often teases, intimidates, and threatens without ever intending to carry out those threats."
The Secret behind the Bully Principle: "Satan comes creeping in and whispers such bully tactics
(and demonically inspired/instigated what psychologists call negative self-talk or even inner vows) as:
'You’re (I am) not going to make it.'
'You’ll (I will) never win; things aren’t going to change for you (me).'
'You are (I am) too bad; you are (I am) dumb; no one will listen to you (me).'
'You (I) might as well give up, (I am a) loser.'
'You’re (I am) ugly; you’re (I' am) too fat; no one can possibly like you (me).'
'You’ll (I will) never fit in; you (I) have nothing good to offer.'
'You are (I am) a Christian; you’re (I am) not supposed to have these things in you (my) life.
(I need to) Forgive and forget, what’s the big deal?' (Words can never hurt me.)"
(However) "You can exert your right as a child of God and say to Satan, 'I recognize you, Satan (and your accomplices), for what you are—a defeated foe at the cross of Jesus Christ. I will not bow down to you. I will use the power that Jesus Christ has given me through His word and through prayer to stand firm against you, your lies, and your cohorts. Be gone in Jesus’ name, now!'"
"When the warfare becomes the heaviest and we feel the weakest, that’s when Satan likes to play the bully role."
(However we can) "Say...scriptures again and again. Be specific when using the word of God. Jesus did! He said, "It is written...!" When Satan tries to tell you negative lies to cause guilt, shame, anger and etc., quote specific scripture—always out loud.
When Satan would taunt you with fear and threaten to drive you crazy, say to him, 'The word of God says:
God has not given us a spirit of fear but of power and of love and of a sound mind (2 Timothy 1:7).
Greater is He who is in me than he who is in the world. (1 John 4:4)
(Because of this truth, in Jesus name we can bind the "bully evil-spirit" inside the person attempting to bully you at school.)
If God be for us, who can be against us? (Rom. 8:31)
Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you (James 4:7). There is therefore now no condemnation to those who are in Christ Jesus (Rom 8:1). Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. (2 Corinthians 4:16)."
The Bully Principle prayer: "Satan, I resist you and every oppressive spirit in the name of Jesus. I resist fear, discouragement, self-pity, and depression. I speak the Word of truth, in the power of God and I give you no place in my life. I give no opportunity to you. I am delivered from oppression by the blood of the Lamb. My heart belong to Jesus,
my Lord and Savior, and Him only will I serve. (In Jesus name I speak.) Amen!"

On occasion there is demonic involvement causing others to NOT notice an individual.
This curse can be broken, in Jesus name.
Chawla, Navin - Mother Teresa, the Authorized Biography - Chapter 7 Brothers and Co-Workers - "The spiritual poverty of the (American) West is far greater than the physical poverty of the so-called developing countries. She (Mother Teresa) calls these unwanted people the 'shut-ins'. It is far harder to cure that form of loneliness. These people are 'nobody'. Nobody notices them. Mother wants the Co-Workers to be 'somebody' to 'someone'."

communicates with, operates through His body and our flesh. "The Holy
Spirit's chief desire is for relationship - to offer us the encouragement and
guidance of a trusted friend."
You also are built together for a habitation of
God in the Spirit.

God says His name is I AM. Therefore
we are to identify with Him. We are to say,
In Him I AM (forgiven, healed, delivered, righteous, holy, healthy, etc.)
We are NEVER to agree with Satan and say, I AM (weak, sick, dying, hopeless, skum, etc.)
Yes, we are to die to self, but never to God. God is daily to become more inside of us,
while we become less, leaving more room for Him to operate in and through us.
We are His physical body, acing on His behalf.

The Pleasure Access - "I also have discovered an access to maximizing more pleasure inducing operations for God's glory. What I mean by 'pleasure inducing operations', is that of yielding to windward spontaneous assignments that bring God such glory, honor, and praise, while also strategically bringing down the hidden works of evil that have been cleverly planned by the arch enemy of our souls. These operations require clothing your-self in the reproach of being known as the scum of the earth motif (I Cor. 4:13) and is opposite the popular self centered destiny and success in life messages that dominate most Christian media outlets in this hour. It is my reverent prayer that many will get back to reading the original context of the Scriptures and flush themselves of the man-made winds of doctrine that have sprung up out of the carnality base of seeking an expanded comfort zone in life.
It is in this camouflaged entrance to the secret place of the Most High
one can discover an access to pleasure that supersedes any pleasure
found in sinful living and worldly delights. Whether it be entertainment or
fulfilling carnal impulses, there is a zone of pleasure that is found in God's
secret glory realm that surpasses anything found in this fallen age. It is a
zone of access that mysteriously enshrouds God's bondservants as they
seek only to please Him with a zeal unmatched by any endorphin rush pleasure
that so many seek out in our day of adventure entertainments. It is a holy and
pure zone of having God's approval and favor injected into your life that
overwhelms the natural senses. I'm labeling it the "Pleasure Access" and this
secret place is available only to those who desire to drink the cup of

Observer Effect - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Observer_effect - (physics) -
Quantum physics has research and
theories whereby material at its infancy reacts positively or negatively, but
only when observed. Our cells/DNA KNOW when we are being observed, whether
by humans or spirits (evil or holy). It is no wonder that we also know we
are being observed 24/7 by God and/or demons. We also know when others are
Call it insight, intuition, or whatever, but our cells apparently DO know.
Paranoia, in reality, it not so weird or false! Medical science is just not up to speed with physics and cutting edge religious practices like exorcism.
(Science has found that animal/human behavior can change when they/we realize we are being observed.)

VISUALIZATION is one of the basic rules of the majority of
non-Christian spiritual proselytism/indoctrination.
Michaelsen, Johanna - Like Lambs to the Slaughter - Your Child and the Occult
chapter 7 Shamanism 101 - What You See is What You Get
says that purposeful deliberate visualization would be equivalent to Christian faith.
The DANGER is when when our mind actively ASKS (invites) the "guide" in one's mind's eye to come.
Rather than asking an evil spirit to come, we need to be asking the Holy Spirit to come.
Ignorance of truth is NO spiritual/legal excuse; Satan always comes in sheep's clothing, always.
See chapter 8 How to Meet Your Spirit Guide ."
(Actually "visualization" is often used as a Catholic inner-healing modality.
Just use caution and always LISTEN to the Holy Spirit.)
We all are self-conscious, aware of others
looking at us, to some degree. Why? Because
we are auditing ourselves 24/7. Others are noticing us.
Additionally, there are also 2 other invisible kingdoms watching us, God's via
His angels, such as our guardian angels, plus the smaller/inferior demonic
kingdom. Thus, to some degree, paranoia is normal, rather than an evil
oddity per a DSM psychiatric/insurance diagnosis. Ha. Additionally,
per quantum physics even matter is self conscious and responds accordingly. Ha.
