How, you ask? By simply addressing the roots of your life, health and relationship issues. That's what this Web site is about. It's about helping Christians live the abundant life you're entitled to. Because hurting people continue to hurt people, this site provides resources, services and products for Healed People to Heal People.

Life If you address the symptoms of your life, health and relationship issues, they will continue. That's why we prefer to identify the roots, then dismantle them according to biblical principles. Then, the symptoms will eventually go away.

Health Do you know one of the most preferred ways to distract a person? It is to inflict pain, illness or addictions in your physical body. This includes mental illnesses. That's why you’ll find information and products about health, the human body and what the Bible has to say about disease and illness on this site. Inclusive is life-changing information about the biblical roots of disease and illness. Be In Health Global owns this information and is gracious enough to allow it to be shared on this site.

Relationships My goodness, every day we have the opportunity to improve our relationships. The question is do we have the desire, the mental capacity and the willingness to give it another try. The other question is since what we've tried hasn't worked to improve our relationships, what should we do differently? Might we suggest learning how to identify the roots behind the issue -- that is what you can't see with the natural eye.

How We at Healed People, Heal People facilitate the healing process by offering personal ministry, group ministry, consulting, educational teachings and training. Our training was at Restoring The Foundations International, Be In Health Global and Pure Herbs Ltd.

Roots How do we identify the roots of life, health or relationship issues? First, we asses what happened generationally in your life and family; this contributes to your issue. Second, we present what you really believe about yourself, what you really believe about others and what you really believe about God that does not align with the truth of the Bible; this contributes to your issue. And please know that most people rarely know what beliefs they operate out of daily that is contributing to them being trapped in the same life, health and relationship issues. Next, you need to receive healing for who and what has caused pain in your life; this keeps your issue in place.

Joy We've had the privilege of seeing the Holy Spirit positively change lives on every continent using simple, biblical healing and deliverance. Be encouraged to browse the site to participate in the forums, listen to healing music or consider supporting this marketplace ministry. Your life, health, and relationships and can change for the better!

 

 



  • Herbs are plant food substances. This is not a scientific definition, it is a practitioners definition. It is used by the people who make recommendations about how to build better health naturally. Herbs have been used since people began eating. They are not new and they were used long before there were people who called themselves doctors or scientists and they worked and they still do.

    There is a solution to every physical problem. It was meant to be that way. It is not experimental. Since there are so many physical differences between us, it stands to reason one herb may do more for a certain person than another but do not despair. There is an herb for you too. Often there are many herbs that are especially helpful for you, just waiting, to be discovered.

    Luckily when eating an herb if the wrong one is taken, nothing much happens and if you do eat too much of it, body mechanisms usually reject it and you leave it alone.Part of the fun is discovering your herb or herbs and in the process an acquaintance with herbs that help other people is gained.

    One of the ways to tell what an herb will do is to taste a little of it. This is much easier to do with a liquid herb than a tablet or a capsule but in any case it should be done before you ask anyone else to try an herb so it will at least be known if what the label says is in the bottle, is in the bottle.

    Please accept this offer to build better health naturally. The information was written because you are respected and appreciated, and loved. Someone does care about you and would like to see you well. Herbs are your birthright. Discover yours. - Dr. A.B. Howard

    Do you take prescription meds?

    Does someone you love take prescription meds?

    Did you know prescription meds is the leading cause of death in America?


    THE LEADING CAUSE OF DEATH IN AMERICA: CONVENTIONAL MEDICINE

    Cause of death

    9/11 terrorist attacks - 2,986 killed

    Chernobyl nuclear accident - 4,000 killed

    Murders each year - 16,000

    Americans killed in Vietnam war - 58,226

    Americans killed by Vioxx - 60,000

    Americans killed by prescription drugs (each year) - 106,000

    Americans killed by conventional medicine (each year) - 783,936


    (page 99-112) “How dangerous are prescription drugs, really? The FDA insists they’re safe enough for widespread consumption, even when one drug, all by itself, has killed more Americans than the Vietnam War.

    The truth is that the vast majority of prescription drugs are not compatible with human biology. Rather then working to support human biology, they typically attempt to hijack the body’s biochemistry to achieve a desired measurable result, and a silent massacre is enacted on the people.

Saw Palmetto is used by the southeastern coastal Native Americans for proper development and maintenance of all the reproductive structures. Elderberry flowers promote sexual appetite. False Unicron Root establishes fertility in both men and women. Yokum ensures erectile tissues and structures are well supplied and increases nerve sensations. Siberian Ginseng provides not only hormonal support but also endurance.

    NATURAL HERB NO. 4 FOR MALE SEX PROBLEMS

    GO.-W

    GO.-W [Go! herbal stimulant] - There are times when an individual must rely on a stimulant to fulfill their commitments and duties. The trouble with most stimulants, such as coffee and tea, is they operate on the fly now and pay later principle. In other words, they act like a whip for a tired horse. They burn your reserve nutrients to squeeze out the last ounce of energy and then the crash comes. This leaves you feeling empty and drained inside unless you practice heavy supplementation of vitamins and minerals. The concept here, for a good stimulant, would be to utilize the principle of pay as you go. And that is what GO.-W does. A generous provision of energy and nutrients run side by side.

    Liquid Bee Pollen and Licorice Root are instant energy for the adrenal glands [glands, one on top of each kidney, that produce numerous anti-stress compounds] that balance out the boost provided by the herb Bitter Orange.

    Prickly Ash sweeps away fatigue products such as acids and carbon dioxide, and Capsicum provides the spark to drive oxygen to the brain and vital organs carried by the herb Eyebright. A person is refreshed and ready to go. When you have miles to go and promises to keep before you rest this night there is help in the form of GO.-W.

    This GO.-W combination herb is made of the following single herbs: bitter orange, bee pollen, eyebright, licorice root, gentian, prickly ash, capsicum.

    Dose: 30 to 40 drops, as needed

    NATURAL HERB NO. 5 FOR MALE SEX PROBLEMS

    N.S.S.-M

    Natural Sexual Stimula - herbalist - Miesse - To get this combination right, it was formulated over a number of years by using the herbs that make it up and seeing their results. It was done with clients who found a desire to enhance their sexual vigor for many different reasons.

    Many people do not want to use a drug like Viagra that may cause undesirable side effects down the road. There are many who would rather use a natural stimulant. They prefer to sue the herbal method to enhance their sex drive or to help them overcome problems due to medication and other concerns.

    N.S.S.-M was developed for those who want a natural choice and for those who have been robbed of their natural desires. Through practice, by adding four supporting herbs to an established base combination, we get N.S.S.-M. Many have found the results very pleasing.

    Blue Steele - This great extract combination gives us the very best of both worlds, physically and mentally. This blend contains 12 wonderful herbs: damiana, dong quai, korean ginseng, sarsaparilla, saw palmetto, elderberry, false unicorn root, yokum, siberian ginseng, french vanilla, wood betony and indian tobacco. Without going into detail, 10 of these strengthen desire [acts as an aphrodisiac] and help in hormonal maintenance, and the last one relaxes the system.

    Pumpkin Seed is an excellent trace mineral that contains zinc and copper. It helps a swollen prostate and is a fine source of selenium.

    Maca strengthens sexual functions in both men and women. It functions at the brain level [pituitiary and hypothalamus] for good glandular balance. It is powerful for oxygen and emotions and helps to avoid sexual organ shrinkage with age.

    Sarsaparilla acts like an electrolyte boost for restoring energy from fatigue and exhaustion. Historically, sarsaparilla is a preventive factor against veneral disease. It is a fine hormonal herb for both men and women.

    Gravel Root is generally used for urinary tract problems and stone deposits. This herb wears many hats and is wonderful for relief of stiff and inflamed joints and tissue due to uric acid factors. It is helpful in restoring fertility for those who are suffering from infertility due to chemical or physical problems.

    Comments: The present demand for Viagra-type natural stimulant does exist, however, I do not believe that nature will give you the quick fix effect that the chemical product claims. Though the natural sex stimulant may be subtle, it will build to a healthier, consistent daily attitude toward sexual desire and a balanced healthy body, allowing for many safe years of pleasure and a healthy life style.

    This formula can be used by men and women and is user-friendly.

    The N.S.S.-M combination herb is made of the following single pure herbs: blue steele, pumpkin seed, sarsaparilla, maca and gravel root.

    Dosage: 20 to 40 drops, taken 2 to 3 times daily in juice or water. More as desired will not harm you.

    NATURAL HERB NO. 7 FOR MALE SEX PROBLEMS

    S.D.-R

    S.D.-R (Stone Dissolver-Reuben) Practiced Amish Herbalist, Reuben Schwartz, recommends this highly successful combination, as being "better than a hammer for smashing kidney and bladder stones and dissolving them". The stones do not irritate in the process of dissolving, as the Marshmallow portion in this combination coats the particles and slides them out.

    This combination herb S.D.-R is made of the following single herbs: stone root, gravel root, marshmallow root, hydrangea root.

    Dose: 40 to 80 drops hourly, while awake, with a glass of water until dissolved. A slower approach is 80 drops three times per day.

    NATURAL HERB NO. 8 FOR MALE SEX PROBLEMS

    S.M.& W.-S

    First of all, The Formula - Stimulant for Men & Women by Solomon - contains the knowledge and observation of many years of Amish herbal experience. When a practitioner sees problems over and over, and what actually works on them, then you have experience that is valuable.

    What else? Well, the real touch of excitement comes wheen you can see a formula [based on this experience and made with high quality herbs] put together and see it can do more than the individual herbs in it can do separately. Then you really have something. And that is what happened and how this formula S.M. & W.-S was developed and came to be.

    Since then, we have the evidence of people continuing to deman this formula for its assistance to men and women. On the basis of this, one might suspect that it works. We can get a hint of its total function by looking at its ingredients.

    Sarsaparilla has long been prized for its anti-stress, energy and stamina giving properties by nourishing the adrenal glands [one on top of each kidney]. The adrenal glands factually make at least four dozen different anti-stress compounds to keep us on a level path.

    They can even make female hormones for a woman who has had a hysterectomy operation to remove the ovaries and/or the uterus.

    Pumpkin seed contains the necessary trace elements of zinc and copper. Zinc is the friend of the prostate and the uterus so that they function normally. Cooper is needed to ensure elasticity of connective tissue.

    Pumpkin seeds are also the enemy of parasites that often plague parts of the body and go undetected as a cause of mischief. Zinc and copper from pumpkin seeds don't fight each other like the people who sell you laboratory made tablets of copper and zinc supplements say they do.

    Yokum is an herb that has known hormonal support properties. It increases the function of sexual activity for men and women. Wild Yam can be taken by women and men to provide the building blocks for the body to convert into whatever sexual hormone may be lacking.

    Wild Yam also has a hormonal balancing property to it.

    Maca is the herb used for millennia by the native peoples of the high Peruvian Andes Mountains for its fertility and anti-stress support. Maca is at home in the Andes and lives and survives the rigors of that harsh climate.

    Stone Root dissolves waste mineral deposits that can clog up circulatory vessels and thus restores circulation and function. It is noted especially for its correction of the urinary system, but it also works on cleaning heart valves and all other areas where there are congestive mineral desposits

    This S.M & W.-S combination herb is comprised of the following single herbs: sarsaparilla, pumpkin seed, yokum, wild yam, maca and stone root.

    Dosage: 80 drops to 1 tsp., 3 times per day and let nature do the rest.

    NATURAL HERB NO. 9 FOR MALE SEX PROBLEMS

    This jewel among herbs makes its home in one of the most desolate deserts in the world, in Southern Africa, the Kalahari Desert. In that tortured environment, it develops its great strength to relieve kidney, bladder, prostate, uterus discomfort and lower back pain.

    Buchu is quick in its action. Buchu finds its primary application in urinary and reproductive system problems [both male and female]. It is helpful in painful urination and for inflammation, gravel and infected mucus of the bladder. It is effective in leucorrhoea [whitish mucus-pus female discharge] and is a stomachic and stimulant tonic. Most effective in kidney support and is an excellent source of herbal postassium.

    Dosage: 10, 20 or 40 drops three times a day

    NATURAL HERB NO. 10 FOR MALE SEX PROBLEMS

    Mayapple

    Mayapple - This deep woods and wayside umbrella shaped, springtime blooming plant, not quite knee high, is a familiar sight in much of North America.

    The Mayapple root corrects the following conditions: bilious troubles [liver-gall-bladder caused vomiting], dropsy [fluid retention], congestion of the liver, constipation, torpid [lazy, polluted] liver, lead poisoning, diarrhea, catarrhal [infected mucus congestion] or malarial jaundice [yellow skin], intermittent and remittent fevers, digestive upsets, headache, rheumatism [joint degeneration], syphilis, venereal warts, scrofula [swollen, infected lymphatics that can result in a variety of tuberculous of the lymph nodes or filters], typhoid fever, prolapsed rectum [prolapsus ani], uterine diseases, pin worms, a specific for cancer of the testicle.

    Dose:40 to 80 drops 3 times per day. If cancer of the testicle, then open capsules of 100 i.u [International Units, a measure of liquid vitamins] Vitamin E and apply to the entire scrotum. Then apply Oil of Cajeput and Herbal Adjustment [Adjustment] directly to the skin. Finally, soak a single layer of cheese cloth or absorbent gauze with Mayapple extract and wrap this around the scrotum. Cover this with plastic sandwich wrap and a cloth and wear with snug but not tight fitting under shorts. Leave on overnight. The next morning, remove the application and discard. Wash the area and allow to dry. Then repeat the application for the daytime. This is an around-the-clock, time release corrective action. Persist until the condition is corrected. Be sure to use with a good bowel program [See Cascara Sagrada, Buckthorn, C.C.E.-W] to carry off the wastes to avoid skin irritation. This same procedure can be followed for other body parts for the other conditions listed above, where practicable. Apply Mayapple to venereal warts as needed.

Resident of calm waters, bearing large, delightful, floating, white flowers with golden centers and producing a captivating perfume described as brandy-like, hence, its alternative name - brandy bottle.

Used to correct all complaints of uterus or prostate and dissolving all types of cancers and tumors in the area.

    NATURAL HERB NO. 13 FOR MALE SEX PROBLEMS

    Saw Palmetto

    Saw Palmetto - This relatively small palm tree inhabits the coast of the U.S. from the Carolinas southward. Its roots help to hold the coastal shoreline together. Produced on its branches is an edible date like fruit. The fruit, along with its seed, have been used by the original coastal inhabitants since before any recorded history. Although the date is said, through modern investigation, to contain male hormone, it has been and is used, successfully, by both men and women to ensure complete sexual development. Men and women, both, use Saw Palmetto to develop their proper proportions and functions. In women, continued use of Saw Palmetto, in about 60% of cases of underdevelopment, does produce increased breast size. Of the other 40%, 20% show no change, and 20% show increased aggression with no change of breast size. For men, Saw Palmetto rebuilds shriveled testicles and corrects associated disorders. For women, Saw Palmetto rebuilds diminished ovaries.

    For both sexes, Saw Palmetto produces solid flesh weight and increased strength without fat. This is of special interest also, to body builders and athletes, both men and women. French researchers report: Saw Palmetto prevents male pattern baldness. The isolated cause is stated to be the overproduction of a male hormone, dihydrotestosterone, in the areas of the scrotum and scalp. Saw Palmetto balances this out and the hair is retained. Saw Palmetto can be given in cases of convalescence, where the person is wasting away, to put flesh back on the bones for successful recuperation. [Combines well with Barberry. See: Barberry]

    Dose: 30 to 40 drops, 3 times per day. For men threatened with male pattern baldness, take 30 to 40 drops, by mouth, 3 times per day, and once per day, rub Saw Palmetto into the inner thighs and into the scalp in amounts needed to cover the area. For women, take 20 to 40 drops, 3 times per day internally, and once per day, apply to both breasts. Athletes, 30 to 50 drops, 4 times per day.

    NATURAL HERB NO. 14 FOR MALE SEX PROBLEMS

    UR.-W

    UR.-W [Urinary] - For urinary tract problems of all kinds, corrects burning, reduces swelling of prostate and uterus, pinching, pressure, tightens urinary sphincter control to correct incontinence and dissolves stones of the kidneys and bladder.

    When using a kidney formula for dissolving accumulated waste or flushing out infections, it is a good idea to drink at least 6 glasses of a good spring water per day, or green drink can be taken at the rate of 1 cup full, every hour, while awake. Prepare a live green drink by blending 1 handfull of any fresh, edible green leaves of lettuce [no head lettuce please] with 1 pint [1/2 liter] of water. Blend for one minute and filter through a paper coffee filter, if desired. Make fresh daily, and chill in the refrigerator to keep throughout the day. If going out, then take an insulated vacuum bottle along for hourly use. If urine flow has stopped, then liberally apply UR.-W directly to the kidney areas on the back which are under and above the last ribs. Apply several times until the urinary flow resumes. If a stubborn problem that requires more intensive work, then apply Vitamin E from 100 i.u. capsules [i.u. stands for International Unit and is a measure of liquid vitamins] to prevent irritation.

    Next, especially if there is pain, apply Herbal Adjustment and Peppermint Oil or Oil of Cajeput directly to the skin. Then, soak a single layer of absorbent gauze or cheese cloth with UR.-W and lay this over the kidney area. Cover with plastic sandwich wrap and finally, wrap a cloth around the body to hold all in place. This procedure is known as a fomentation [fo'-men-tay-shun]. Leave on overnight, each night, until well. This can be repeated for the daytime, if needed. Wash the area and allow to dry before putting on a new fomentation. Never reuse a fomentation as this time-release procedure not only drives the herbs into the affected area, it also pulls poisons out of the body in the reverse direction.

    Take internally, daily, to correct infections and prevent problems. For men and women it is very important to have a good bowel maintenance program, in conjunction with solving urinary problems, to guard against bowel wastes being reabsorbed and irritating the surrounding areas. [See: Cascara Sagrada, C.C.E.-W, Buckthorn].

    For women it is important to use the napkin instead of the tampon, as the tampon holds irritants internally that aggravate surrounding areas. If additional assistance is needed, then consider the use of Pipsissewa [or Blue Cohosh if not pregnant] in case venereal infections may be related to the suffering, at the rate of 40 drops, 3 times per day.

    This combination herb UR.-W is made of the following single natural herbs: cornsilk, uva ursi, gravel root, buchu and yarrow.

    Dose: As a daily maintenance of the urinary tract, 30 to 40 drops per day. If an active problem, then 40 to 80 drops internally, after meals, or hourly while awake, in times of crisis and as given above.

    NATURAL HERB NO. 15 FOR MALE SEX PROBLEMS

    Echinacea

    The function of Echinacea is in the ability to expel morbid material, hence circulation is improved. It has long been held that the average person has 10 to 20 pounds of morbid material in the blood system and alimentary canal that is chronic and uneliminated. It is a perfect breeding ground for disease and malfunction, hence, the extraordinary, valuable role of Echinacea is highly desirable.

    Auto-infection, where the body is infectious to itself due to stale wastes is eliminated by Echinacea. As this occurs, help in the following areas are observed: strengthen the immune system, syphilis, gonorrhea, gangrene, tired feeling, resolving of pus pockets and pimples, elimination of piles, correction of lymphatic inflammation, snake bites, stinging creatures, bad breath, toxic tonsils, prostate problems, sexual impotence, and foul discharges.

    It should be noted that Echinacea produces temporary skin disturbances in cases of weak kidneys, lymphatic engorgement, poor lung and bowel elimination. The body simply kicks waste out through the skin. This may alarm some people as they think the Echinacea has made them sick. Persistence in its use will soon clear up this temporary corrective disturbance.

    Care should be taken to assist Echinacea by increased bowel elimination with a laxative as needed. Dry brushing of the skin with a brush, made of vegetable fiber, non-synthetic clothing and gentle sunbathing will greatly diminish skin irritation.

    Deep, old, bluish chronic conditions respond to Echinacea. External dryness and bluishness due to internal dehydration and oxygen starvation are a specialty of Echinacea. This may be applied externally with gauze or cotton and covered by plastic and held in place with a cloth wrap. Vitamin E oil from 100 or 400 i.u. capsule(s) should be applied before the gauze to prevent irritation to very sensitive skin.

    Dosage: 5 to 40 drops one or two times per day internally. Start with 5 drops and increase if necessary. Be sure to use a bowel cleaner such as C.C.E.-W [see Cleansing Corrective Extract] to keep the debris flowing and prevent sick feeling, while Echinacea does its job.

    NATURAL HERB NO. 16 FOR MALE SEX PROBLEMS

    Greasewood [Chaparral]

    This remedy comes from the American Indian Pharmacopoeia [listing of official Indian medicines]. Greasewood bush has dark, sticky, resinous-filled leaves and stems. It has the distinct taste of telephone poles or creosote, hence its common name Greasewood Bush. It performs a very valuable service as a douche for the female system [20 drops of extract to a cup of water].

    Greasewood is most valuable due to the rising widespread use of commercial antibiotics whose use encourages the growth of many types of fungi [funguses], in the body.

    Lapacho

    Experienced herbalists consider that both the Tabebuia altissima [purple flowered] and Tabebuia avellanedae [red flowered] varieties should be mixed together for the best possible effects. South American medical doctors proclaim nothing short of miracles for quick relief of pain for cancers of all types as well as their cure within one month in many cases.

    Once again, South American Indians made known a tree which they have used for thousands of years to cure their people. The first was the Cinchona tree bark which yields quinine and cures malaria. Lapacho taken as a boiled tea three times per day [one heaping teaspoonful of the bark to make one cup of the tea] is reported to be their method. The extract is possibly many times stronger if made properly.

    The chemistry of Lapacho is quite well known to the scientific world. Dr. Frederick Koch, M.D., used substances from the tree bark called quinones during the 1930's in Detroit, Michigan, with astonishing results to cure even advanced cancer cases before going to South America in order to continue his practice. He especially used a single quinone, which he described as oxidizing or burning up the encapsulated pockets of stagnant cancer-causing points.

    He reports in this way he was able to provide oxygen for the breath of life to continue for the patient. Lapacho actually has 16 quinones never before discovered together in nature. The jungle Lapacho tree is completely immune to fungus infections unlike other trees. It should not be thought that the limit of Lapacho's abilities are confined to cancer, according to Alec de Montmorency, expert on exotic folk remedies. He has collected medical information during the last 20 years on the use of Lapacho in various South American countries.

    He reports the following list of problems that medical doctors using Lapacho have solved: anemia, leukemia, cancer of all types, lupus, inflammation of the reproductive organs, Hodgkin's disease, Parkinson's disease, colitis, arteriosclerosis, gastric problems, leukorrhea, cystits, hemorrhages, prostate inflammation, polyps, psoriasis and eczema.

    Dosage: South American information indicates 40 to 80 drops of the extract in a cup of water three to four times per day. 20 drops per day as a preventative.

    Quack Grass

    Quack Grass - Triticum repens, is also known by many other common names such as: dog grass, witch grass, shelly grass, quick grass, twitch grass, knot grass, and dog weed. This is an undistinguished looking, but dependable, valuable wild grass with an unsuspected hint of sweet taste.

    Of special interest to herbalists and natural practitioners is the fact that Quack Grass contains a very rich and effective source of the trace element, Selenium. This friendly herbal source of the important trace mineral element, Selenium is used by the body to cause an enzyme [a compound produced by the body which speeds up or slows down the living process without it itself being altered] called glutathione peroxidase [glu'-tuh-thy-own purr'-ox-uh-dase] to stop destructive free radicals [dangerous oxygen compounds formed in the process of living as fat stores are maintained, and from environmental pollution and when fats are fried] from interfering with or causing mutations [defective or enemy cells] during normal cellular division. [Another word to describe what the Selenium in Quack Grass is doing here is the word, antioxidant].

    By stopping the formation of defective cells, this immediately suggests the use of Quack Grass to prevent formation of cancerous cells. This explains why earlier herbalists have reported using Quack Grass for such a variety of conditions. Certainly, we know many animals eat Quack Grass when they are sick. Cats eat Quack Grass to throw up hair balls. [No, you do not have to have hair balls to take Quack Grass.]

    Quack Grass is used to clean out the bladder and urinary tract. For men, Quack Grass can reduce swelling of the prostate gland. For this purpose, Quack Grass combines especially well with the herb Saw Palmetto. Quack Grass also dissolves the acids which torment joints and kidneys and cause gout.

    Dose: 40 to 80 drops 3 times per day. As a maintenance, 40 to 80 drops per day.

    Pumpkin Seed

    Pumpkin Seed - Good source for the valuable trace element zinc that builds skin integrity internally and externally, promotes normal wound healing, is needed to insure a strong immune system in developing baby, grows healthy hair and nails and prevents onset of some cancers. Zinc eliminates foot odor in some individuals. One way to determine if a body has a Zinc deficiency, is to look for white spots under the fingernails.

    If present and chronic [persistent], then be assured there is a zinc deficiency. Pumpkin Seed is an especially good source of the trace mineral zinc for men especially to promote virility and fertility, maintain proper prostate health and to correct a swollen prostate. One of the first warning signs, for men with prostate problems, is that the urinary flow is slow to start.

    Pumpkin Seed is also high in another valuable trace element: namely, selenium. Selenium, being an anti-oxidant, prevents damage from poisons to the body's genetic materials, that are responsible for cell duplication and sex cell reproduction and to prevent cancer cell formation.

    Excellent parasite remedy; especially good to rid the body of pin worms, round worms, and tape worms. These problems are far more widespread than most people would ever suspect, even today. Pumpkin Seeds also contain the element Copper that must be and is balanced with its zinc content.

    Special note If many baffling symptoms and none of the herbs seem to work, then it is time to de-worm. It is estimated, conservatively, that one out of every two people has one or more infectious parasites -- yes, even in the civilized areas of earth.

    Dose: 40 to 80 drops 3 times per day. To rid the body of parasites, 1 tsp. to 1 tbl. each evening with a good bowel cleaner. [See Cascara Sagrada, C.C.E.-W or Buckthorn]. You must be able to flush out what Pumpkin Seed has killed to prevent nausea.

Use for any of these conditions: burning urine, prostate irritation, mucus in the urine, water retention, lower back pain or pressure [due to the kidneys], sore joints due to gonorrhea, or skin disorders. Many chronic problems, with no seeming cause or cure, may be due to a secondary or primary manifestation of a venereal infection(s), which may or may not have been inherited. In these baffling cases, consider Pipsissewa as a key to open the lock. Pipsissewa is gentle on the stomach. Rub on sore muscles after heavy lifting or on abdomen after childbirth, as needed, to promote comfort.

  • masonhandshake
    I decided to post this blog below because my life and my family's life has been adversely, negatively affected by being a part of the Masonic and Eastern Stars. Yes, I know the organizations are presented as community organizations, especially to Christians.

    My life has done a 180 degree turn since I made the decision to renounce my family's historical and generational involvement in these organizations that are part of the occult. I made the decision to break the biblical, generational curses that are automatically active in your life once you join these organizations. Those in my family who have chosen not to do so still suffer to this very day.

    They shrug their repeated life mishappenings as a bad day, bad luck, or whatever they choose to pawn it off on. The Holy Spirit can speak to you better than any person. I challenge you to ask the Holy Spirit to speak to you about your involvement or your family's involvements in any society or organization that has initiations or secrets. My dearly beloved believers in the body of Christ, the Bible is very clear about this subject.

    While pastoring a church in Arkansas, I was asked to take a church that was on a spiritual and numeric decline.

    I accepted the call, and in November 1990, 1 became pastor of the First Baptist Church of Columbia, Louisiana.

    For the first few months, the chairman of the Pulpit Committee regularly visited my office telling me what I could or could not do.

    He was especially opposed to door-to-door evangelism.

    Soon I learned that a group of other men shared his views.

    They criticized most of the former pastors and even explained in detail how they had "railroaded" a full-time youth pastor out of the church.

    His removal was so slick, they said, that no one in the congregation knew what was happening.

    Their message was clear, "Do what we want, or we will do the same to you."

    They kept me so busy carrying out their plans, projects, and agendas that I had little time to
    listen to God.

    When I would move in the direction I felt God wanted, one of them would show up with all kinds of plans and projects. I was continually derailed from God's leading.

    There was small numeric growth with these activities, but the church was spiritually dead.

    Worship was oppressive, as if a dark cloud hovered over the services.

    Throughout this time the chairman of the Pulpit Committee repeatedly gave me a funny handshake. I had no clue
    what he was doing.

    Finally, God began to speak to me that I needed to listen to His direction, not the direction of these men.

    His Words were so clear, "Concentrate on worship, revival, evangelism, and making disciples."

    When I first began to emphasize worship, I sensed resistance from the Minister of Music, who proudly wore his Masonic ring and tie tack.

    Several months later, however, he went through a spiritual crisis and prayed to receive Christ.

    Two weeks later he gave his testimony in church.

    After his testimony, I stood to invite others to come forward and receive Christ.

    I was shocked at what I saw.

    Although there was rejoicing on a few faces, most were hostile - so hostile that it sent chills up and down my spine.

    As I looked at their faces, I identified them as Masons and their Eastern Star wives.

    "This is demonic," I thought. When I started two discipleship groups, there was tremendous resistance within the deacon body.

    One deacon, who was also a Mason, tried to wreck every session.

    When I emphasized a personal relationship with Jesus, he became combative and hostile.

    He argued so much during Wednesday night Bible study that I had to switch to straight preaching.

    Hungry for fellowship, I had been praying for months for a soul-winning partner.

    God answered that prayer when the Music Minister expressed a desire to go out witnessing.

    We went from house to house sharing Jesus, and quietly, without fanfare, his Masonic ring and
    tie tack disappeared.

    He told me that God had convicted him about being a Mason, and that he had formally renounced Freemasonry through a letter of resignation sent to the lodge.

    Gradually, a group in the church began to catch a vision for having a personal walk with Jesus, learning discipleship, and evangelism.

    The church services began to change.

    I could feel God's presence in every service.

    The Masons, however, were not rejoicing.

    The one who had so frequently given me the Masonic handshake, called my home and threatened me that
    if I didn't get the Minister of Music "calmed down," the deacons would "take care of him."

    As one group in the church grew closer to Jesus, another group became increasingly resistant
    toward what God was doing, and hostile toward me as pastor.

    Seven couples began forming a wall of resistance.

    Of the seven couples, two individuals were not Masons, nor members of the Eastern Star. One was a Seventh Day Adventist, and the other's father was a 32nd Degree Mason.

    During this same period, a sister church was experiencing a touch of God, with the same resistance from Masons.

    Not willing to participate in the battle, several couples left that church and came to ours.

    They openly acknowledged that they had been upset because the Masons had squelched the moving of God in that church.

    The Masonic group in our church immediately began a verbal attack against the newcomers.

    One Mason summoned me to his house and warned me that the newcomers could cause trouble in our church because of their attacks on Masonry.

    He revealed that he was a Mason and that there was not going to be a discussion of Freemasonry at First Baptist.

    He warned that a previous pastor had tried to deal with the Masonic issue in the church and had created
    problems as a result.

    I located the former pastor and learned that he had maintained a bookstore which contained several books exposing Freemasonry.

    One night someone broke into the store and stole all the books on Masonry.

    "If Freemasonry is just a harmless men's fraternity, why get upset about a few books?

    Why all the scrambling to hide books and refuse to even discuss Masonry?

    If Masonry is of God, let's bring everything out in the open and see what wonderful things God has done in Masonry.

    But if it is not of God, then there are many reasons to operate in darkness and secrecy."

    These were my thoughts.

    It was at this time we began experiencing demonic manifestations during the services.

    Usually the demons would surface when I preached on our victory over Satan through the blood of Christ.

    Any aspect of victory in the Christian life or salvation messages would stir up the demons.

    During a series of messages on revival, and the filling of the Holy Spirit, there was considerable agitation.

    All of those with demonic manifestations were either Masons or Eastern Star wives.

    Hostility toward me began to increase, all directed by the Masons.

    Deacons' meetings became nothing more than open season on the pastor.

    Again, led by the Masons.

    Finally, the man who had given me numerous Masonic handshakes came to my office, tearing into me about the spiritual atmosphere that was developing within the church.

    As he was verbally attacking me, suddenly a force, as it were, came out from him and hit me.

    Evil surrounded me. I sensed oppression.

    Within two days the oppression became deep depression.

    All that week I read books on spiritual warfare to educate myself on what was happening.

    By Sunday a black cloud of spiritual oppression had settled over the entire church.

    I told no one of my encounter with the Mason, yet several people verbally expressed that things were different in the church.

    This oppression continued for eight months, while life for me and my family was a living hell.

    It was as though sharks could smell blood and were coming in for the kill.

    Vicious attacks by the Masons were leveled against me and my family, and against all who
    supported me.

    I became so physically ill that I had to enter the hospital for two weeks.

    The church decided to give me a three-month sabbatical, which at first seemed compassionate.

    It soon was evident that this generous action was a disguise to buy time, so that the Masons could remove me from the church.

    When I returned from my sabbatical, the deacons informed me that I was no longer pastor - that the church would have to vote me back in.

    This was one of those instances in which a few deacons decided their own agenda privately.

    No one else knew what was going on.

    This is the way satan works - always in the dark, in secret, behind closed doors.

    satan lost temporarily.

    The vote was never taken and I was permitted to resume preaching.

    Two months later, at a monthly business meeting, the Masonic group succeeded in voting me out.

    The members voting against me included many who had rarely come to church, and some I had never seen before! I was not permitted to speak, and the meeting was so hostile that I thought I was going to be mobbed.

    Those who were yelling, screaming, and jumping out of their seats were one and all Masons and their Eastern Star wives.

    Shortly after leaving First Baptist I had a counseling session with Dr. Mark Bubek, who is well known both nationally and internationally for his experience in spiritual warfare.

    After hearing about the man who regularly harassed me in my office, his first question was, "Is he a Mason?"

    He confirmed that I had been under heavy demonic attack.

    I never preached against Masonry, so the attack was not a counterattack.

    It was simply that the spirit behind Freemasonry opposes anything God-sent, Christ-exalted, Spirit empowered
    that brings revival to the church.

    Yes, the Masons reacted negatively to my messages on grace.

    They were infuriated when I suggested man could not earn his way to heaven.

    They were not opposed to inviting people to church.

    They were opposed to the evangelism that was taking place in church, once the visitors arrived.

    And they were greatly offended by the fact that people in the church were going door-to-door in the community, asking people if they knew that they had eternal life.

    The Masonic message is one that abhors a Christian life that has Jesus Christ at the center.

    The Masons in Columbia regard First Baptist as an extension of their lodge.

    Well, they have preserved that extension, for today First Baptist has disintegrated into a handful of men and
    women, primarily the Masonic and Eastern Star group.

    The price of their success was the destruction of a house of God, and the persecution of its pastor and many God-fearing people.

    Such is the spirit and purpose of Freemasonry.

    What are pastors to do? First, take a stand on Freemasonry. Second, write your position in a letter and mail it to your
    national headquarters.

    The Danger of Celebrating Halloween
    by Kim Daniels
    CharismaMag.com
    10.27.2009

    Halloween—October 31—is considered a holiday in the United States. In fact, it rivals Christmas with regard to how widely celebrated it is. Stores that sell only Halloween-related paraphernalia open up a few months before the day and close shortly after it ends. But is Halloween a holiday that Christians should be observing?

    The word holiday means holy day. But there is nothing holy about Halloween. The root word of Halloween is hallow, which means holy, consecrated and set apart for service. If this holiday is hallowed, whose service is it set apart for? The answer to that question is very easy—Lucifer's!

    Lucifer is a part of the demonic godhead. Remember, everything God has, the devil has a counterfeit. Halloween is a counterfeit holy day that is dedicated to celebrating the demonic trinity of: the Luciferian Spirit [the false father]; the Antichrist Spirit [the false holy spirit]; and the Spirit of Belial [the false son].

    The key word in discussing Halloween is dedicated. It is dedicated to darkness and is an accursed season. During Halloween, time-released curses are always loosed. A time-released curse is a period that has been set aside to release demonic activity and to ensnare souls in great measure.

    You may ask, Doesn't God have more power than the devil? Yes, but He has given that power to us. If we do not walk in it, we will become the devil's prey. Witchcraft works through dirty hearts and wrong spirits.

    During this period demons are assigned against those who participate in the rituals and festivities. These demons are automatically drawn to the fetishes that open doors for them to come into the lives of human beings. For example, most of the candy sold during this season has been dedicated and prayed over by witches.

    I do not buy candy during the Halloween season. Curses are sent through the tricks and treats of the innocent whether they get it by going door to door or by purchasing it from the local grocery store. The demons cannot tell the difference.

    Even the colors of Halloween [orange, brown and dark red] are dedicated. These colors are connected to the fall equinox, which is around the 20th or 21st of September each year and is sometimes called Mabon. During this season witches are celebrating the changing of the seasons from summer to fall. They give praise to the gods for the demonic harvest. They pray to the gods of the elements [air, fire, water and earth].

    Mother earth is highly celebrated during the fall demonic harvest. Witches praise mother earth by bringing her fruits, nuts and herbs. Demons are loosed during these acts of worship. When nice church folk lay out their pumpkins on the church lawn, fill their baskets with nuts and herbs, and fire up their bonfires, the demons get busy. They have no respect for the church grounds. They respect only the sacrifice and do not care if it comes from believers or non-believers.

    Gathering around bonfires is a common practice in pagan worship. As I remember, the bonfires that I attended during homecoming week when I was in high school were always in the fall. I am amazed at how we ignorantly participate in pagan, occult rituals.

    The gods of harvest that the witches worship during their fall festivals are the Corn King and the Harvest Lord. The devil is too stupid to understand that Jesus is the Lord of the Harvest 365 days a year. But we cannot be ignorant of the devices of the enemy. When we pray, we bind the powers of the strong men that people involved in the occult worship.

    Halloween is much more than a holiday filled with fun and tricks or treats. It is a time for the gathering of evil that masquerades behind the fictitious characters of Dracula, werewolves, mummies and witches on brooms. The truth is that these demons that have been presented as scary cartoons actually exist. I have prayed for witches who are addicted to drinking blood and howling at the moon.

    While the lukewarm and ignorant think of these customs as just harmless fun, the vortexes of hell are releasing new assignments against souls. Witches take pride in laughing at the ignorance of natural men [those who ignore the spirit realm].

    Decorating buildings with Halloween scenes, dressing up for parties, going door-to-door for candy, standing around bonfires and highlighting pumpkin patches are all acts rooted in entertaining familiar spirits. All these activities are demonic and have occult roots.

    The word occult means secret. The danger of Halloween is not in the scary things we see but in the secret, wicked, cruel activities that go on behind the scenes. These activities include:

    * Sex with demons
    * Orgies between animals and humans
    * Animal and human sacrifices
    * Sacrificing babies to shed innocent blood
    * Rape and molestation of adults, children and babies
    * Revel nights
    * Conjuring of demons and casting of spells
    * Release of time-released curses against the innocent and the ignorant.

    Another abomination that goes on behind the scenes of Halloween is necromancy, or communication with the dead. Séances and contacting spirit guides are very popular on Halloween, so there is a lot of darkness lurking in the air.

    However, Ephesians 1:19-21 speaks of the authority of the believer and the exceeding greatness of God's power in us [the same power that raised Christ from the dead]. It goes on to say that that Jesus is seated in heavenly places far above all principalities, power, might, dominions and every name that is named. The good news is that because we are seated in heavenly places with Jesus, the same demonic activity that is under His feet is under our feet, too!

    People who worship the devil continue to attempt to lift him up. But he has already been cast out and down! Many are blinded to this fact, but the day will come when all will know he has been defeated once and for all.

    When we accept Jesus but refuse to renounce Satan and his practices, we are neither hot nor cold but lukewarm—and the Word says that God will spit us out of His mouth. The problem with lukewarm is that it attempts to mix the things of the devil with the things of God. It is God's desire that we serve Him alone.

    Second Corinthians 6:15 asks the question, And what agreement has Christ with Belial? As believers, we need to answer that question in our hearts. We must avoid the very appearance of evil. I would not want a demon spirit to mistake me for an occult worshiper.

    There is no doubt in my heart that God is not calling us to replace fall festivals and Halloween activities; rather, He wants us to utterly destroy the deeds of this season. If you or your family members have opened the door to any curses that are released during the demonic fall festivals, renounce them and repent. I already have. Then declare with me: As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord!

    Scriptures: Matthew 6: 31 – 33; Psalm 37:4

    Have you ever allowed petty differences to interfere with relationships? Marriages are breaking up and churches are breaking up and fellowship groups are breaking up and prayer partnership groups are breaking up Over petty things where people are not mature enough to say when it’s all said and done, “I need you.”

    You will run into Christian people and non-Christian people who inadvertently disrespect you or inadvertently make you feel bad.

    Let’s take a look at Hannah in I Samuel, chapters 1 and 2, who’s making her annual trip to Shiloh.

    According to scripture, Hannah has been weeping, praying and pouring out her heart to the Lord.

    Her mouth continues to move; Hannah’s voice is just above a whisper.

    Since you’re probably familiar with this scripture, you remember that Eli thought that Hannah was drunk because he saw her lips moving and she wasn’t speaking to anybody else. Eli could not figure out why Hannah was murmuring to herself. In what Eli had experienced in his life, the only reason a person muttered to herself or himself, was they’d had some wine.

    Eli made a presumption about Hannah.

    Okay, the key word here is presumption.

    Eli assumed what he thought, was so, based on what he saw -- that is, what he presumed about Hannah.

    Eli drew conclusions about Hannah without having any facts.

    Has anyone made presumptions about you and been wrong?

    Has anyone disrespected you and been dead wrong?

    Has anyone thought they knew what you were thinking, didn’t check with you to substantiate the facts, and they were wrong?

    Have you ever had somebody look at you and based on what they think they see, then reach conclusions and operate on assumptions about you – they even begin to talk to other people about you based on presumptions.

    You are aware there are some people who decide they know what is going on in your life based on what they think they perceive.

    Now remember, Eli was a called man of God.

    He was anointed and appointed by God – this is very important to remember.

    Presumption has no place in the kingdom of God, and Eli, a man of God in a position of authority, presumed.

    When you presume to know what people are thinking,
    When you presume why they are doing something,
    When you presume what’s really in their hearts, you dishonor the integrity of these very people.

    Eli said to Hannah, a precious woman of God, “How long have you been drunk? Get rid of your wine.”
    Eli did not ask Hannah any questions to gather facts and to be respectful of her.

    He did not ask, “Have you had some liquor Hannah [this one time]?”
    He did not ask, “Do you drink regularly?”
    He did not ask, “Are you in a drunken state Hannah; I’m concerned about you?”
    Eli presumed Hannah had been a habitual drinker.
    Now -- if we’re remotely honest, most of us would have been insulted and offended, especially since Hannah was tarrying before the Lord.

    Can’t you just imagine how Hannah could have felt?

    Do you wanna know why I had to type this article for you, beloved reader?
    Do you wanna know why I so respect Hannah, dear reader who’s still being healed and delivered just like me?

    Hannah was focused.
    Hannah was so focused, she didn’t forget her purpose.
    Hannah was so focused, she chose not to operate in offense.
    Hannah was so focused, she chose to interact with Eli in a posture of l-e-g-i-t-i-m-a-t-e submission.
    Key word = l-e-g-i-t-i-m-a-t-e.
    Hannah was so focused, she remembered and let Eli know that she needed him to achieve her goal.

    Beloved reader, you can’t afford to take the well-intentioned people in your life and begin to set them aside, and break fellowship and relationship with them, so that you end up isolated and unto yourself. The enemy knows when you are walking by yourself, you can get ambushed. You and I are prime prey for the enemy when we isolate and withdraw.

    When we have Christian companions walking with us, the enemy has to think twice about attacking us. He knows the power of agreement. He knows the power of unity. He, satan and his demons, takes the good intentions of people that cause us to be so offended and cause us to feel so disrespected that we dis-fellowship with these Christian and non-Christian people. Oouchh!
    Ecclesiastes 4

    Beloved reader, some of the people who are getting on your nerves, not all of them are your enemies. Some of them are people God has brought into your life, but you have to learn how to navigate. For example, Peninnah, was a bona fide enemy of Hannah. Eli was not Hannah's enemy, although she could have easily chosen to exclude or distance him from her life. Hannah knew Eli was a divinely appointed person in her life.

    Beloved reader, building good, solid relationships is not easy. You know this, I know. Don’t let taking flight, be your first tendency. It takes work, on your behalf, to be big enough, to be mature enough, to work through some of these l-e-g-i-t-i-m-a-t-e offenses. And yes, the person, the people, were wrong.

    We need the imperfect Christian people, God has appointed in our lives.
    We need the imperfect Christian people, who will presume sometimes and come to us in attack mode.
    We need one another desperately.
    You need the support of those God has raised up to be in your life – to achieve your destiny, to get through this mental valley your in.

    Do you have enough grace in you, to initiate the process and go get the issue straight with the person?
    If you don't, let's ask the Holy Spirit to impart more grace to us for a specific issue with a specific person.
    Oouch!

    As Christians, the last place we expect to be disrespected is in the church and by church members.

    But may I share something with you beloved reader, the majority of Christians who come for personal, confidential, integrated healing and deliverance ministry, have been disrespected or even abused repeatedly by Christians in leadership positions either in the local church or in the marketplace i.e. your neighborhood, your professional groups, your workplace, your exercise partners, your family, etc.

    If you’ve not read I Samuel 1 – 2, be encouraged to read it so you can know how Hannah respectfully and calmly explained to Eli her issue, her condition and her need of his help in her life. Hannah even goes a step farther, and reconciles. Oouch!

  • halloween

    By Redge Peifer

    People everywhere carve out pumpkin faces, hang skeletons on their walls, buy costumes … getting ready for devil’s night and, of course, halloween. Do you know where halloween originated?

    Halloween

    The een in the word Halloween refers to the een or evening before the day known as All Saints Day. But, what kind of saints were these? The saints of the Bible. No, All Saints Day was originally a festival honoring the druid priests who were into the occult and who were priests of satan.

    The Druids And Human Sacrifice

    Halloween has clear connections with their primitive and savage rituals in 2 BC [the pre-Roman, pre-Christian Celtic communities of northern and western Europe, especially in France [Gaul], Britain, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. They were the builders of Stonehenge where they would bring humans to be sacrificed in Britain.

    The druids worshipped pagan gods that included the sun god, the earth mother goddess and Sambain [lord of the dead]. Stonehedge was constructed to calculate the sun’s movements and then determine the most suitable day to worship the earth mother goddess – by the sacrifice of a human! The date selected was October 31, halloween! Think about it.

    Reincarnation

    The druids believed in reincarnation that is contrary to the teaching of the Bible. Hebrews 9:27 reads, And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment. According to their religion, the god Sambain judged the souls and decreed in what form their existence was to continue whether in the body of a human or in an animal. They believed that sinful souls of those who had died during the year had been relegated to the bodies of animals and through various gifts and sacrifices, their sins could be forgiven and the souls freed to claim a heavenly reward. It was common for horses to be sacrificed, but there were also a lot of human sacrificed.

    Men, mostly criminal, but not all – were imprisoned in wicker and thatch cages shaped like animals or giants. The druid priest set fire to these cages and the men were burned to death. They eventually included women and children in their horrible sacrifices.

    Sacrifice Of Children

    Please note from the Bible that Molech is the demon directly associated with the sacrifice of children. Molech was the Canaanite god of fire. To bring this more current, beloved reader, Molech is the demon directly associated with abortions. In the Bible, Molech was a demon god, that’s still active today, who demanded the sacrifice of living children. As Christians, we understand that children are living at the moment of conception. Thus, abortions are the killing or sacrifice of living children.

    They not only sacrificed unto false gods, but the druid rituals included eventually direct human sacrifices to the devil. They acknowledged him and worshipped him and multitudes of men, women and the little children were murdered.

    Thou shalt have no other gods before Me.
    Exodus 20:3

    And he ordained him priests for the high places, and for the devils, and for the calves which he had made.
    II Chronicles 11:15

    And he caused his children to pass through the fire in the valley of the son of Hinnom; also he observed times, and used enchantments, and used witchcraft, and dealt with a familiar spirit, and with wizards: he wrought much evil in the sight of the Lord, to provoke him to anger.
    II Chronicles 33:6

    The Pumpkin

    The men, women, or children to be sacrificed on halloween would simply be selected by the druids. They would leave a pumpkin on the doorstep of the house to replace the victim and to let the other members of the family know that no one else would be harmed. Now, every time you look at a pumpkin on somebody’s front porch, you’ll know what it really represents.

    If you, your family, your friends or your church members have engaged in these occult practices, you should know you have opened the door to the occult. No one said that that satan or his demons play fair. If you open the door to the occult, then the respective demons enter. Demons do not leave because you come into knowledge. The Bible is very clear on how to break strongholds. The Bible is very clear about how to take of care demonic oppression in Christians. I strongly suggest you do so ... else you, your family, your friends or your church members are living with the presence of demonic influence. I'm more than pleased to answer any questions you may have. Please post your comments.

  • needtoforgive
    You hear a lot about forgiveness and how we need to release those who have sinned against us. But what if the person you need to forgive is yourself? What if you can’t move forward because of something you know you’ve done wrong and it haunts you? When taking people through biblical, integrated healing and deliverance it's been learned over decades that the most difficult thing for people to do is forgive themselves.

    There are always three parts to forgiveness: 1) forgiving others and others forgiving you; 2) forgiving or really releasing God [cause many of us are ticked off at the Lord and just afraid to admit it; it's okay you can admit it, you will not be sinning or loose your space in line to get into heaven]; and 3) forgiving yourself.

    Satan speaks many lies to us that simply are not true. So what does he speak? He says the following lies to us.

    a) What I did so such a big sin the Lord cannot forgive it.

    b) I knew better and still did it, so it's not forgivable.

    c) I've continued to repeat this same behavior and I'm so ashamed, I just can't ask for forgiveness again.

    d) I've downed others and have now done what I said I wouldn't do. I'm a terrible person.

    Remember, that these four things I wrote above are lies from satan. And the Bible clearly repeats that the father of lies is satan. So I encourage you today to release yourself from false guilt and accept the forgiveness that is available for you today.

    Cry in private if you need to and wail out your pain. Write yourself a letter to get it mentally out of your head. Speak the words out loud saying you forgive yourself and ask the Holy Spirit to supernaturally work the self-forgiveness down into the granules and crevices of your hurting, almost numb, heart. Ask the Holy Spirit to bring life, no abundant life, into your heart, mind and life.

  • masturbation

    By Dr. David Kyle Foster

    1. Masturbation can be the vehicle whereby the inhibited person maintains their propensity to remain self-contained and in need of no one. It deepens the trenches of loneliness, self-pity and self-centeredness.

    2. Masturbation is a turning in on one's self -- a narcissistic neurosis that feeds introspection and other dysfunctional directions. This kind of inwardly focused life robs people of the fullness of life that Christ came to give.

    3. Masturbation can become a gateway for demonic strongholds to develop. This becomes more and more likely as one delves deeper and deeper into pornography and perverse sexual fantasies.

    4. This behavior serves to program the mind to focus on fantasy as the source of pleasure rather than the biblical model of union with one's spouse. People come to be seen as objects rather than real people. It is an elaborate scheme of the enemy [satan and his demons] to keep us from learning how to be intimate with our spouse and our God.

    5. When someone takes up the practice of masturbation, they are programming themselves to turn to solutions that block or hide problems rather than solve them. This immature life-pattern for problem-solving is highly dysfunctional and is the foundation upon which is laid a lifetime of addictive behavior.

    6. Masturbation has a physically addictive side to it that serves to block pain. The chemicals that are released into the brain serve to medicate pain much like any addictive drug. God wants us to bring our pain to Him. He wants us to grow through it and receive the blessing of sharing in the sufferings of Christ.

    7. Masturbation is a task master that demands the continual plumbing of new and more perverse depths of lust. On that treadmill, the mind is programmed to more and more highly delineated sexual fantasies, which the marriage bed can never match. Normal marital relations become a disappointment and the design for sex thwarted. The body also becomes programmed to achieve release quickly, which serves to frustrate the patterns of healthy sexual intercourse between spouses.

    8. A clutching at the genitals by infants is often a manifestation of separation anxiety, but that same behavior in childhood is often a sign of sexual abuse or some other cause for significant internal anxiety in the child. If the child uses a mirror during the act, that is a scenario that can result in homosexual confusion, as the child programs their mind to associate sexual pleasure with the sight of their own body. [In such cases, other factors that lead to homosexual neurosis are probably also present, such as molestation or failure to bond on an emotional level with the same-sex parent]. Adolescent experimentation at puberty is normal and not a cause for alarm unless it becomes habitual.

    What does the Bible Say?

    One of the most prevalent rationalizations that people use is that the Bible never mentions masturbation and that it must therefore be alright. Is that logical? Is child molestation alright then? It's not specifically forbidden in the Bible. How about shooting heroin? Or how about torturing someone? Not mentioned! You see how illogical the argument quickly becomes.

    How do we know that smoking dope is against the will of God, for example? We discover the answer by uncovering the principles found in scripture - most specifically those concerning the body being the temple of the Holy Spirit and those commanding us to obey governmental authority. We also know sin by the witness of the Holy Spirit within, provided we haven't quenched that witness through ongoing rebellion.

    The most obvious biblical principle that is applicable to masturbation is found in Matthew 5:28 where Jesus indicates that lusting after someone in the heart is the same as actually doing it. I am violating whomever I am picturing in my mind during the act of masturbation. It really doesn't matter whether it is a picture from a magazine, [Those are real people!], or someone I've met or a memory of some act committed in the past.

    And if I can discipline my mind to think of no one, what of that?

    Attainment of such focus only serves to make obvious the desperation and obsession that drives us to such lengths. The principles found in I Corinthians 6:12; II Peter 2:19; and Romans 6:14 clearly emerge as foundational to our plight -- that we are slaves to whatever masters us. When we get truly honest about the habit of masturbation, it is clear that it is a behavior that controls us -- one that we use to medicate pain, to alleviate stress or to forget rejection. In that way, it is similar to a drug habit -- just one more vehicle to avoid turning to God.

    Why won't we turn to God? We may be ashamed. We may believe that He's going to judge and punish us. We may not trust Him. Or, it simply may never occur to us. We don't normally see God as being involved in the fulfillment of our sexual lives. He's a Spirit after all and we are physical creatures. And yet, He is in fact the answer to every problem. He can quench our unholy desire and He can teach us to respond to problems by working through them rather than from running from them.

    Confessing the Right Things

    It is important that I discover the root sin issues so that I can repent of them. If I am unaware of one or more of these strongholds, I will inevitably remain bound because my unrepented sin will continue to give Satan ground to hold me in bondage. Much of the transformation process involves discovering where Satan's ground is and removing it with the tools that God has provided. What then are some of the root sin issues that need to be confessed?

    1. Unbelief

    Unbelief Is the doubt that God is really good. When I sin any sin, I am in that moment doubting that God is really there for me, that He cares, and therefore, that He is good. I am re-enacting the first sin committed in the Garden of Eden, when Eve became convinced that God was keeping from her something that was good.

    The truth is, God has something better than the coping mechanism of masturbation -- even for the single person. He has something higher, something that will bring completion and satisfaction to one's sexual self. It is this truth that is most effective in being persuaded to forsake the sin.

    2. Idolatry

    Ephesians 5:3-5 clearly teaches that sexual immorality is a form of idolatry. Often masturbation becomes a source of life and peace, especially for those who have lived through great pain. It becomes a substitute god. Should the Spirit come to offer freedom, many will recoil in terror at the realization that they are being asked to live without something that has been a primary source of peace in their lives - something that has kept them from falling apart. The behavior becomes so entrenched in their sense of being that life without it becomes unimaginable.

    Like the worship of any god, masturbation has its own fetish objects and rituals -- times, places, triggers, ritual objects, and ritual patterns that draw the person into an almost trance-like progression toward the peak experience and denouement. Confessing the ritual worship and removing or renouncing its various components is key to seeing its power broken.

    3. Rebellion

    Sometimes we simply refuse to listen to the Holy Spirit or pretend not to hear Him. The self-care of masturbation often cloaks anger and distrust of God, who never seemed to be there when we needed Him. Often in childhood, when God doesn't rescue us or change us upon demand, we judge Him in our hearts and develop a root of anger that must be removed through confession and repentance. That means we acknowledge our rebellion and make concerted choices to love Him and to believe that given the context of human free will, God operates with complete integrity and love.

    4. Love of Sin

    This one is often buried under mounds of rationalizations. We pretend that we need to practice the sin, we deserve to practice it, it's the least God can do to allow it considering what we've gone through, etc. But the truth is, we love it more than we love God. In order to change this, we need to discover how to love God more. Greater love for God comes as a fruit of taking the time to know Him intimately. A lifestyle of worship is important. The demonic realm cannot stand that. Meditating on the Cross is also a major key. As we gain a deeper appreciation for our Lord's suffering, we become more willing to jettison the things that have charmed us most [as the old hymn says]. When tempted, we only need ask ourselves, Who do I love right now - the sin that is tempting me, or the One who loves me so deeply that He died on the Cross for me? Put that way, the choice becomes far easier to make.

    5. Self-deception

    It is a humbling thing to realize that over the years we become masters at deceiving ourselves into believing we want freedom from something that we will not give up. Like an onion, we lay down layer upon layer of self-deception, saying the right religious words and thinking the right religious thoughts, while still refusing to forsake the desire for the sin that lingers in our hearts. We need to acknowledge before God the ongoing impurity in our motivation, the depravity in our heart, and our need for Him to give us the true heartfelt desire to be holy and pure.

    6. Performance-righteousness

    Most of us, even those who know better, continually fall into this trap. Though we talk of grace alone and being able to do nothing without Christ, our fallen nature continuously seduces our minds into believing that we must earn God's love and acceptance and that we must develop our own righteousness. Over and over again we try to make ourselves holy and pure rather than suffer the humiliation of the flesh and truly become dependent on God for the power to live the kingdom life that He won for us on the Cross.

    The Long and Winding Road to Freedom

    It would be nice if God would just zap us and make us permanently free from sin and bondage. But the process of sanctification is often arduous. Through it we learn to value the end result, depend on Him, love Him, trust Him, hate evil and give all glory, praise and honor to God and God alone.

    The foundational principles by which our Lord sets us free from masturbation are no different than those for any other sin and bondage. Simply put, set your focus on Him [rather than your problem] and let His Spirit guide you the rest of the way. In moments of intimacy with Him, God will lead you through a complete shift in your priorities. He will transform your affections and belief systems. He will deepen your desire and determination to be liberated. He will expose and heal the hidden emotional and sin problems that have fed your bondage. And He will strengthen your willingness to believe and to act on His promises.

    1. Learn to give yourself grace. It took you a long time to develop the problem, so in moments of failure, turn and receive the love and grace of God. He is pleased with you because of Christ's sacrifice on your behalf and because deep in your heart, you loved Him enough to commit your life to His Son. God has grace to spare. In fact, it is His grace in the midst of our failure that ultimately yields the fruit of obedience [Titus 2:11-14].

    2. Permanently set your heart and mind to turn to God at the first moment of temptation and with acknowledged weakness and dependency, cry out to Him for His power to quench the fiery darts of the enemy. Commit to being ruthless with temptation -- giving it no place. Let Christ answer the door when it comes knocking!

    3. Remove every influence that leads you into desiring and repeating the behavior. Ask God to show you what these are. Break the ritual patterns and remove the ritual objects as God reveals them to you.

    4. Practice believing that God has something better -- that He can indeed fulfill the needs that are temporarily being met through the illegitimate means of masturbation.

    5. Spend significant, quality time with God in praise, worship, prayer and scripture reading. Pour out your heart to Him. Develop the same intimate relational knowing of God that you would with a spouse. Ask Him to implant within your mind a healthy view of sex and the sexuality of others. Ask Him to give you a love of purity, seeking Him passionately in the beauty of His holiness [Psalm 96:9]. Listen to Him as He unlocks for you the unique keys to your transformation. Listen with a heart set on obeying His direction no matter what He may suggest.

    6. Refuse to submit to Satan's barrage of self-condemning thoughts when you fall. There is no condemnation for those in Christ Jesus [Romans 8:1]. Call any thought or feeling to the contrary the lie that it is and reject it. Repent and then run back into your Daddy's arms.

    7. Learn what God really thinks of you by meditating on the Cross. Reject the lies of self-hatred, loathing and shame that are in actuality, elaborate challenges to the Cross of Christ and the promises of God.

    Know that God has the will and the power to set anyone free from anything. Go for the free indeed promise. Seek not the maintenance program of the world, but the transformation program of the kingdom of God!

    What is a demon?

    Demons have distinct and unique personalities just like human beings. Remember that neither satan nor his demon spirits are things. Neither should they be taken lightly. Demons are beings who have all the normally accepted marks of personality: they possess will, intelligence, emotion, self-awareness, and the ability to speak.

    Satan is the leader of all demons. Because satan is prideful, his demons follow his lead, which means all demons have a degree of pride like their leader. Demons even compete against one another while operating in your life. The name of the demon reveals its characteristics or manifestations. See the following examples.

    Lucifer - Isaiah 14:12

    Prince of the power of the air - Ephesians 2:2

    Ruler of the demons - Matthew 12:24

    Destroyer - I Corinthians 10:10

    Angel of light - II Corinthians 11:14

    Serpent of old - Revelation 20:2

    Great dragon - Revelation 12:9

    Devil - Revelation 12:9

    Wicked one - Matthew 13:19

    Father of lies - John 8:44

    Murderer - John 8:44

    The following are examples of the characteristics of demons in the Bible.

    Here the demon exercises his will, a 1st characteristic
    In Matthew 12:44, the demon who has gone out of a man says, "I will return to my house from which I came." The demon here exercises its will to make a decision, and then follows it up with the corresponding action.

    Here the demon shows emotion, a 2nd characteristic
    In James 2:19 it reads “You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe - and tremble!" Trembling is an outward mark of strong emotion. Derek Prince writes that at times he has seen a demonized person, who when confronted with the authority of Christ, began to tremble violently. This may be an outward manifestation of fear of the demon inside.

    Here the demon shows intellect, a 3rd characteristic
    Demons have knowledge not derived from natural sources, rather evil sources. The first time Jesus confronted a demonized man in the synagogue in Capernaum, the demon spoke out of the man and said in Mark 1:24, "I know who You are - the Holy One of God!" It was more than a year before Jesus' own disciples began to realize what this demon had discerned immediately.

    Here the demon shows self awareness, a 4th characteristic
    When Jesus asked the demonized man in the country of the Gadarenes in Mark 5:9, "What is your name?" a demon answered on behalf of itself and the other demons, "My name is Legion; for we are many." The demon was aware of both its own identity and that of the other demons occupying this man.

    Here the demon shows their ability to speak vocally, a 5th characteristic
    In the first three gospels and also in Acts, we see several examples of demons able to speak through the vocal organs of the people they are occupying. The demons could and still do answer questions and carry on a conversation. Normally we regard the ability to speak as a distinctive mark of personality.

    Demons display a wide range of character traits. Some are vicious, violent, supernaturally strong. Others are weak, cowering, even ridiculous - characteristics one would not expect to find in a demon, which is a fallen angel.

    Where did demons come from?

    If mankind, Adam and Eve, had never sinned, we would never have been vulnerable to demons. From the beginning, ever since man, Adam and Eve, turned from God in rebellion, all males and females born have been subjected to two main spiritual evils: sin and demons.

    Where do demons live?

    Each demon desires to express himself through a human body, preferably yours. A demon is not happy unless he has a human body, again, preferably yours. Because demons do not possess physical bodies of their own, demons seek to inhabit or use the bodies of humans or animals.

    How do demons work?

    God can be everywhere at the same time. Satan cannot be everywhere at the same time. Since satan was booted out of heaven, there has been a fight for dominion. Satan tries to accomplish his goal of dominion of your life through demons since he cannot be everywhere at the same time.

    He, satan, dispenses or assigns his demons or demonic spirits to babies in the womb, people, you, your family, your church, cities, denominations, governments, countries, hospitals, institutions, leaders, through music, through television, through drugs, through immoral sex, through perverted sex, through alcohol, etc. In very simple terms, God represents the light or the good and satan represent the dark or the bad. Just as God and His Holy Spirit is active daily, so is satan and his demons or demonic forces and principalities.

    What can I do about demons?


    There is an urgent need for Christians to learn all we can about the nature and activity of demons. This knowledge is important for all believers, since none of us can claim immunity from the attacks of demons.

    It is especially important for pastors and other Christians certified in integrated healing & deliverance to be trained and available for each Christian who desires help. Only with trained, revelatory knowledge are those called to healing and deliverance able to make a correct diagnosis and apply the appropriate remedy so Christians can experience freedom ministered by the Holy Spirit.

    Are demons associated with illnesses or health challenges?


    Many sicknesses are actually caused by demons, and they should be treated as such. Let's look at a scriptural example where this actually happened.

    In Luke 4: 38 – 39, it reads "And he arose out of the synagogue, and entered into Simon's house. And Simon's wife's mother was taken with a great fever; and they besought him for her. And he stood over her, and rebuked the fever; and it left her: and immediately she arose and ministered unto them."

    If this fever was only a physical problem, then how foolish to rebuke it! It makes no sense whatsoever to rebuke an inanimate thing. One can only rebuke something having intelligence, and Jesus knew that a spirit caused this fever. The fever left Peter's mother-in-law because it had to obey Jesus' authoritative command.

    How many demons are there?


    The Bible specifically names many, many demons and there are also categories of demons based on their function. For example, if a person [illegitimately] controls things and people, the specific demon in the Bible that's operating in this person is the Jezebel demon [you understand that Jezebel is really a super stronghold because four demons make up the Jezebel head.]

    When you are engaged in spiritual warfare, it is important to know your enemy. Part of spiritual warfare is getting rid of your demons on a lasting, permanent basis. Demons manifest themselves through you, your family and your church members under many different names. The following evil spirits, demons, or devils are mentioned in the scriptures, but this list is not exhaustive. Each one is a personality, and the word used expresses their nature:

    The nature of specific demons shown in the Old Testament that remain active today.

    Jealousy/feelings of jealousy - Numbers 5:14, 30

    Ill will/evil - Judges 9:23

    Distressing/evil - I Samuel 16:14-23; 18:10; 19:9

    Lying/deceiving - I Kings 22:22; II Chronicles 18:20-22

    Perverse/distortion/dizziness - Isaiah 19:14

    Deep sleep - Isaiah 29:10

    Heaviness/fainting/despair - Isaiah 61:3

    Harlotry/prostitution - Hosea 4:12; 5:4

    Unclean/unclean/impurity - Zechariah 13:2

    Familiar - Deuteronomy 18:11

    Death - Hebrews 2:14-15

    Are there new demons?


    No, there are not new demons. The demons established in the Bible are it, but that's a whole lot of them! Demons can take on many, many, many manifestations in each person's life.

    How do you identify demons?


    The easiest way to identify a demon is by how it manifest in your life. There are many lists of demons, strongholds and generational curses. Again, the easiest way to identify each demon in your life is by how it manifests in your life. For example, one lady was severely overweight and she struggled with her weight for years. When she came for healing and deliverance, the demon was simply identified as the sugar demon. See how simple that is.

    Why are so many Christians scared of demons?


    Christians are scared of demons because:

    a) you may not understand your authority based on scripture - An excerpt of Luke 10:18-19 reads, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

    Christians are scared of demons because:

    b) you may have a fear of using your authority once you know your authority; fear is a stronghold that is controlled by the demonic.

    Christians are scared of demons because:

    c) you may believe the authority the scripture states is for all other believers except you; this unbelief is a stronghold that is controlled by the demonic.

    Christians are scared of demons because:

    d) you may be deceived into thinking the demons active in your life will not obey your command when you use your authority; this is a lie. Satan is the father of lies. Demons are under the leadership of satan. So, this lie you believe is from what, the demonic.

    Christians are scared of demons because:

    e) you may not understand your position based on scripture - An excerpt of Romans 8: 16-18 reads that you are the child of God and a joint-heir with Christ.

    Christians are scared of demons because:

    f) you may choose not to exercise your authority daily; angelic and demonic activity take place 24-hours a day. As a Christian, you are automatically enrolled in a battle known as spiritual warfare. There are only two positions in this Christian battle, offense and defense. Most Christians choose, by default, to live their lives operating on the defense and in response mode. Most Christians choose to be passive in the battle. Why are you passive? Because your church does not regularly teach and train the church body and regularly teach and train those called to healing & deliverance how to engage in spiritual warfare daily.

    Christians are scared of demons because:

    g) you may have been deceived into thinking that demons have more power than you do -- as a child of the King who inherited all spiritual blessings. Smile -- I'll let you find this scripture reference : )

    Christians are scared of demons because:

    h) you may choose not to read and study your Bible regularly to be reminded of and operate daily in your God-given authority. Meanwhile, you, your family, your church and your country suffer needlessly. It really ain't that deep yall -- sorry about the incorrect language here.

    Why do so many churches not teach on the demonic?


    God is not interested in our church membership or denominational labels – we all use the same Holy Bible where all of these scriptures in this article can be found. No believer wants to be exposed and many of our sins, including our private, secret sins, create shame. Confidential, healing and deliverance ministry does not expose you, the person, rather it exposes the demonic strategy that’s been operating in your life and keeping you in your private bondage.

    You think what you’re going through is not transparent to other believers, but it is. The Holy Spirit is still waiting on you to surrender -- at any minute of any hour of any day. You know what the beauty of confidential, integrated healing and deliverance is? It will be the last time you deal with the pain, the shame, the secrets, the coping mechanisms. You may remember, but the pain historically associated with the memories, the experience, is over!

    There are three parts to the God-head: 1) God the Father; 2) God the Son; and, 3) God the Holy Spirit. In the church, we are comfortable with the first two parts of the God-head, but many churches are not comfortable with teaching and training about the third part of the God-head, the Holy Spirit.

    Any church that does not teach, train and operate in the supernatural realm of the Holy Spirit and regularly teach and train those called in to healing and deliverance is a crippled church. Why is the church crippled? Because the leadership and the membership will not have an available arm of ministry where hurt people can be healed. And you know that every breathing human in the church has something the need healing and deliverance from, right? After all, the church is a hospital for the spiritually sick.

    What is the purpose or goal of demons?

    As stated in John 10:10, the thief [satan and his demons] come to steal from you, and to kill you, and to destroy you. This is true for every human born, which includes you and every person in your family lineage. Satan and his little demons are so pleased the more you choose to remain unlearned about him and his demons. Why does this please satan? Because he can continue to have dominion in your life or parts of your life. All the while, you continue to blame things in your life on coincidence, bad luck, you being different or you just can't stop doing something.

    Why is it critical for you to understand demons as a Christian?


    Picture a green plant in a flower pot. Most Christians when dealing with life’s issues deal with the symptoms. The symptoms are the green leafs on the plant. Integrated healing and deliverance deals with the roots of the plant in the flower pot that you cannot see. The green plant represents your life. The demons represent the roots of your life challenges and problems. Unless the roots of your life issues are identified and dismantled, you continue to see manifestations in your life.

    Let me give you an example. Let’s say there’s a person who has a drug stronghold. Typically, you’ll hear people talk about the drugs, the lack of responsibility the person shows, how the person steals, how the person will not keep a job, etc. While all of those things are a reality, none of those symptoms are the root(s) of the person’s problem. Integrated healing & deliverance targets, identifies and dismantles the root system of your life’s problems.

    What do demons hate?

    Demons hate many things, but I’ll share four things. One, demons hate God. Two, demons hate believers using a heavenly prayer language because they cannot understand what’s being prayed; demons can understand you praying in English or your native language. Three, demons hate scripture, which is why scriptures must be used when actively dealing with the demonic. And four, demons hate humans, which includes you.

    Demons do not play fair in your life. Demons show you, your family and your church no mercy. May I ask the next logical question? Why do you choose, by default, to exercise grace toward the very demons that are still stealing, killing and strategizing to destroy you, your family and your church? Have no mercy on demons in your life; be brutal with them in exercising your authority!

    How do demons relate to generational curses and strongholds?


    Exodus 20:5-6
    … For I The Lord your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate Me.

    Exodus 34:7
    … visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children, and upon the children’s children, unto the third and fourth generation.

    Numbers 14:18
    … visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fouth generation.

    Deuteronomy 5:9
    … visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me.

    Now, why did I share these four scriptures with you? One, because they are true because they are in the Word of God, the Holy Bible. Two, because these scriptures clearly establish generational curses.

    Each of you reading this article have parents, grandparents, great grandparents and so forth. Because none of us came from perfect families, that means that both sins and iniquity were present in their lives. More than likely, most of us didn’t even know the people extending back to the 4th generations on our mom and dad’s side of the family.

    One thing you must understand about God is God sees me and you as part of a family unit. We are born into a family unit and remain in a family unit until we die. You can’t get into the world bypassing a family structure. Most of us think of ourselves as an individual. I’m sorry, but that’s not how God views us. We are all connected, and initially that’s through the family structure, which links you into the generations referenced in the four scriptures above.

    So, what’s the bottom line here? Did every person in your family on both sides of your family repent and confess of all their sins and iniquities. Probably not. Because each of us is born into our families, the iniquities of our parents and the other people unto the fourth generation weigh against us from our inception in the womb. What does this word iniquity mean? Iniquity is inner heart tendency from your fore fathers sins pressing, weighing, leaning against you to do the same thing [sins] they did.

    Do you and I have to give in to the pressure? No, but many times we do. Why does this pressure exist? Well, satan’s job is to kill, steal and destroy your life. We know that satan doesn’t play fair, that’s a given. Well, how early should satan start working on you? As early as possible. Well, how early is that? He, satan, starts when you’re in the womb, the moment of conception plotting and strategizing on how to take you out.

    Click here to listen to the audio titled Demons Entering Through The Womb. Be encouraged to listen to this; it is a good, sound, biblical teaching.

    Well, how does satan know what to try on you? One thing we know about satan is he looks at what’s worked well historically, generationally in taking out your family. Since your parents, grand parents and those back to the fourth generation probably didn’t do anything about their generational curses, he automatically starts with those sins and iniquities to see if you’ll give in to the pressure and follow suit – yet adding on another generation continuing the bondage.

    Well, reader, most of the time, this works so flawlessly, that satan and his demons have very little work to do in our lives. So the question for you reading this article is, what are you going to do about the operation of generational curses in your life? You can try to deny them, but that is not effective.

    How do demons relate to generational curses? One way generational curses have power is they are held in place to operate through the demonic realm.

    In many cases demons transmit from one family generation to the next family generation, and so forth, through a) genes; b) the environment children grow up in [we all were children at one point]; c) the universal, biblical law of sowing and reaping [that is active in every single family]; and d) demonic oppression.

    Can the transference of demons occur?

    Yes. In some cases, the transference occurs during a formal, ritualistic ceremonies.

    How do I get demons out of my life?

    Temporarily, you can bind demons and temporarily stop their mission, which is to block you from receiving God has for you. Why do I purposely use the word temporary with demons. After you bind any demon, you should complete the process by commanding each demon from your life.

    If you don’t do this, then the binding process is temporary, which means each time you see the demon manifest, you’ll need to rebind. This can become laborious, so it’s just makes sense to complete the process by commanding the demon the leave. Commanding each demon active in your life will not take place until you take care of the root reason(s) that gave each of the demons entrance into your life.

    Matthew 16:19 reads, And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom heaven; and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.


    What are demonic voices?

    As a Christian, you should know the different ways the Holy Spirit can speak. A few examples of how the Holy Spirit speaks to us are following:

    a) in a still small voice, Acts 9: 3 – 7;
    b) by external or outward visions, Joshua 5: 13 – 15;
    c) with dreams, Daniel 2;
    d) through and inward vision, John 8:38;
    e) via personal prophecy [that should be tested and prophecy can be conditional], I Corinthians 12: 7 - 11;
    f) illumination of scripture;
    g) hearing His voice audibly, I Samuel 3:10; or
    h) in any way He chooses.

    Remember these are only a few ways you can hear the voice of the Holy Spirit. Many times many, many, many Christians are challenged in hearing the Holy Spirit in their daily lives. Why?

    a) Unrepented or unconfessed sin hinders you from hearing the voice of the Holy Spirit

    b) You feeling unworthy to hear the voice of the Lord;

    c) You being afraid [fear] to hear the voice of the Lord;

    d) You don’t even believe you, as a Christian, are able to hear the voice of the Lord, so this is boldface unbelief.

    e) Not spending regular, daily, intimate time with the Holy Spirit makes His voice foreign to you. As in every relationship, we learn to recognize someone’s voice by hearing it over and over again. This is even true for the Lord’s voice.

    John 10: 4 – 5, 16 – When he has brought out all his own, he goes on ahead of them, and his sheep follow him because they know his voice. But they will never follow a stranger; in fact, they will run away from him because they do not recognize a stranger’s voice … They too will listen to my voice …

    f) Your unexpressed disappointment or anger towards the Lord can hinder you from hearing His voice.

    g) The presence of demons operating in your life block your spiritual eyes and ears. There are certain demons that specialize in trying to prevent our receiving anything from God.

    h) Read I Samuel 3:2-10 where Samuel did not recognize the voice of the Lord

    How do demons strategize?

    One strategy demons use is to see what has worked successfully on those in your family lineage – particularly your parents, grand parents, and so forth. If no one in your family line has broken the generational curses held in place by the demonic, the curses continue.

    A biochemist once explained to Derek Prince, "A human body is attacked regularly by cancerous cells. When that body is healthy, its immune system identifies and attacks the cancerous cells, and they are unable to harm the body. But when the body has been weakened by illness or some kind of emotional shock, the immune system is unable to do its job effectively, and some form of cancer can develop somewhere in the body."

    Immediately Derek Prince said to himself, that's just how it is with demons!

    A second strategy demons use | Demons continually seek to invade you, but when you are spiritually healthy, the spiritual immune system within you identifies and attacks the demons, and they are not able to move in and take control of you. Any kind of unhealthiness or emotional weakness on the other hand, makes you vulnerable to demonic attack.

  • birthcontrolpills

    Do you take prescription meds? Does someone you love take prescription meds? Did you know prescription meds is the number three cause of death in America according to the Journal of American Medicine?

    Are birth control pills safe? Any drug that artificially manipulates the natural hormonal activity of the body will have negative implications and side effects.

    What is the birth control pill? How Does it work? Is it Safe?
    by Paul Weckenbrock, R. Ph.

    The birth control pill is any drug which uses artificial hormones to keep a woman from getting pregnant or from staying pregnant by interfering with her normal fertility.

    Are all forms of the pill the same?

    No. There are several types of the pill on the market, but they basically break down into two groups: combination pills and the progestin-only minipill.

    The combination type contain two artificial steroids that mimic the effects of naturally occurring hormones, estrogen and progesterone. Some pills work in a monophasic way, keeping the dosage of hormones the same throughout the pill cycle. Others work in a biphasic or triphasic manner which alters the dosage of artificial hormones two or three times respectively through the cycle of pills, attempting to produce fluctuations similar to what a fertile woman would undergo naturally.

    The progestin-only minipill uses only one artificial hormone, progestin, which is a steroid that has a progestational effect similar to natural progesterone.

    How does the pill work?

    The pill is designed to interfere with several normal functions of fertility in order to make a woman 1) unable to conceive due to temporary sterility or sperm immobility, and/or 2) unable to carry a pregnancy to term [an early abortion].

    This process can be accomplished in various ways.

    Suppressing ovulation: When a woman ovulates, hormones released from the pituitary , a gland located at the base of the brain, stimulate her ovaries to ripen and release an egg. The combination pill usually interrupts the release of these pituitary hormones resulting in no egg being released from the ovary, thus preventing pregnancy from occurring. With no egg available for fertilization, the woman is chemically sterile. The progestin-only pill, however, has a weaker effect. It generally does not suppress ovulation.

    1. Inhibiting Implantation: Another important aspect of fertility is the process by which the lining of the uterus is replenished and maintained. After an egg is fertilized, it normally implants in this lining [endometrium], drawing nourishment and sustenance. The progestin component of the combination pill and the progestin-only minipill cause the inner lining of the uterus to become thin and shriveled, unable to support implantation of the embryo [newly fertilized egg].

    2. Impeding Sperm Migration: Preceding ovulation, a woman’s cervix produces a watery mucus through which sperm swim to meet the egg. The mucus also provides nourishment to sustain the life of the sperm cells. This mucus thickens under the influence of a progestin and so impedes sperm migration.

    3.There are two other factors in a woman’s fertility that may be affected by the pill.

    Making changes in the Fallopian Tubes: Progestins lower the efficiency with which the fallopian tubes propel eggs from the ovaries toward the uterus. This can cause the embryo not to reach the uterus in time to implant successfully.

    4. Stopping a Pregnancy: After an ovary releases an egg, the woman’s cycle is controlled by a gland that is formed from the now-empty egg sack, the corpus luteum; this normally functions long enough to give an embryo time to implant in the uterus and for the placenta to begin to support the pregnancy.

    However, hormones from the pill can cause the corpus luteum to function inadequately, allowing the lining of the uterus to be shed before the embryo can successfully implant.

    In summary, a woman’s natural fertility requires several systems and organs to coordinate smoothly. The synthetic chemicals in any type of birth control pill interfere with this coordination, adversely affecting her normal fertility and any accidental conceptions.

    How effective is the pill?

    In theory, the pill reaches an effectiveness of over 99%, but in practice the rate is much lower. Between 1.9% and 18.1% of women will experience an unplanned pregnancy in the first year of using the pill.

    Surprise pregnancies with the pill are due to a number of factors. Interactions between the pill and some other medications interfere with the proper blood levels of hormones necessary for their birth control effect. These drug interactions may be significant with the commonly used low dose pill where slight alterations in hormonal blood levels can result in more frequent ovulations and hence unplanned pregnancies. Another factor in pill pregnancy rates is not following directions, sometimes due to the lack of motivation, especially in younger women [ages 15-24].

    Is ovulation always suppressed?

    No. Ovulation occurs in 2% to 10% of cycles of women taking the pill. If 60 million women worldwide are on the low-dose pill, there would be 1.2 to 6 million ovulations per cycle. This is known as breakthrough ovulation, and it is even more frequent with the progestin-only pill.

    What happens when ovulation does occur?

    When the pill fails to prevent ovulation, the other mechanisms come into play. Thickened cervical mucus may make it more difficult for the sperm to reach the egg; however, if the egg is fertilized, a new life is created. The hormones slow the transfer of the new life through the fallopian tube, and the embryo may become too old to be viable when it does enter the uterus.

    If the embryo is still viable when it reaches the uterus, under-development of the uterine lining caused by the pill prevents implantation. The embryo dies and the remains are passed along in the next bleeding episode which, incidentally, is not a true menstruation even though it is usually perceived as such.

    Does this mean the pill can cause an early abortion?


    Yes. Preventing the newly conceived life in its embryonic stage from being transported to the uterus and preventing implantation in the wall of the uterus are the abortifacient properties of the pill.

    Why haven’t I heard about this before?


    The Pill manufacturers and many in organized medicine are mainly concerned about the pill’s medical side effects and its effectiveness in preventing pregnancies and are less concerned about how the drug achieves its effectiveness.

    Unfortunately, many otherwise pro-life physicians and pharmacists find it hard to admit that these abortifacient properties exist because they would have to discontinue prescribing and dispensing the pill if they were to remain consistent in their respect for life at all its stages of development.

    Pro-abortion organizations and their lawyers readily admit the early abortion potential of the pill. In February 1992, writing in opposition to a Louisiana law banning abortion, Ruth Colker, a Tulane Law School professor, wrote, "Because nearly all birth control devices, except the diaphragm and condom, operate between the time of conception ... and implantation ..., the statute would appear to ban most contraceptives." In 1989, attorney Frank Sussman argued before the U. S. Supreme Court that " ... IUDs [and] low dose birth control pills ... act as abortifacients."

    Is It Safe? What are the common side effects of the pill?

    There is a range of risks from serious or fatal to minor and trivial. The following is a list of the most common side effects experienced by women taking the pill. These effects are dose related and not every woman will experience them, but the risks still exist. The synthetic estrogens of the combination pill cause many of these; the progestin causes others and is the only risk factor in the progestin-only pill.

    Heart and blood abnormalities

    Blood clots can form, restricting or blocking the flow of blood to critical organs and other body systems, possibly causing permanent damage. For example, a blood clot in the heart would cause a heart attack; in the brain it would cause a stroke or brain hemorrhage; a clot which moved from elsewhere in the body and lodged in the lung would cause a pulmonary embolism; in the kidneys a clot would cause a renal artery thrombosis and kidney damage; in the retinal arteries it would cause temporary or permanent blindness.

    Studies continue to indicate approximately a 2-fold increased risk of fatal heart attacks among users of the current low-dose pill when compared to non-users. This risk is lower than the risk experienced with the older high dosage pill, but it continues to be significant. Similarly, the risk of a fatal brain hemorrhage is increased 1.4 times when comparing users to non-users. Among women who smoke, there is a 12-fold increase in fatal heart attacks and a 3.1-fold increase in fatal brain hemorrhage.

    High blood pressure and alterations in the blood clotting mechanisms may be seen in women on the pill. This may contribute to a 3-11 times increased risk of developing blood clots in Pill users compared to non-users. The risk is especially great for women who smoke and/or are over 35 years old.

    Cancer

    Breast cancer has been repeatedly associated with using the pill.

    Breast cancer has been increasing at an alarming rate in recent years, especially among young women. Breast cancer will kill more than 44,000 American women this year alone, a 1991 report noted, predicting 175,000 more new cases, especially among young women.

    Why is there such an increase of breast cancer among younger women? Note first that women rarely develop breast cancer shortly after they start taking artificial hormones. It is generally not until ten or more years after usage was initiated that women develop breast cancer. Then note that in the United States, since the mid-1970s, it has been common for the pill to be prescribed for girls in their teen years.

    Common sense connects the link between giving the pill to young girls in the 1970s and the later increase in breast cancer 15 to 20 years later among women in their late twenties and thirties. This conclusion was demonstrated in a study which found that Swedish women who took the pill in the 1960s incurred a five times greater increase in breast cancer when compared to non-users.

    The increased risk of breast cancer is seen in younger, nulliparous women [never having borne children], and in long duration groups [greater than five years] of pill users. Large tumors and a worse survival rate are associated with the pill’s use at an early age.

    Will the newer formulated low-dose pills decrease the incidence of breast cancer? A consensus of understanding has not been reached, and another 10 to 20 years of experience with women using this form of the pill must be gained before more definite conclusions can be reached.

    Breast tenderness, enlargement, lumps, and milk secretions also may occur in women using the pill. Doctors are warned not to prescribe the pill to women who are known or suspected to have breast cancer. It is difficult to say what aggravating effect the pill’s hormones would have over a truly random sample of women taking the pill.

    Cervical cancer and cervical dysplasia increase among women who use the pill. How long the pill has been taken, how many sexual partners a woman has had, at what age she began having intercourse, whether she smokes, the hygiene of sexual partners and the transmission of the human papillomavirus [HPV] are also factors in cervical abnormalities. Because of these several factors, the connection of the pill and cervical cancer may be clouded over. However, there is no doubt that the promotion of the pill has resulted in early intercourse which may be the more direct cause of cervical cancer.

    Endometrial and ovarian cancer appear to have a lower incidence in both women on the pill and in those who have been previous users of the pill. Much of this data comes from studies of women who were using the higher dose estrogen/progestin pill. Currently the low dose monophasic and triphasic pills [less than 50mcg of estrogen] are the only birth control pills available on the U.S. market. It is not known if a similar protective effect will be experienced with the currently used pill. More time is needed to study this issue, and the slight protective effect is hardly a reason to take the Pill at the risk of so many other side effects.

    It should also be noted that these forms of cancer are rare and primarily occur among postmenopausal women in their fifties and sixties. Second, these cancers tend to occur in those women who had long cycles [i.e., with a prolonged estrogen-dominant phase] or those who have a family history of these types of cancer. Third, extended breastfeeding amenorrhea offers the same type of protection against these cancers since the menstrual cycle would be suppressed and therefore the exposure to estrogen suppressed.

    Liver tumors in younger women [15 to 40 years] have increased as the use of oral contraceptives has increased. Almost unheard of in this age group before the use of synthetic hormones became commonplace, liver tumors usually do not occur until the sixth decade of a woman’s life.

    A study by the American College of Surgeons’ Commission on Cancer found a large peak in the 26-to-30-year age group which corresponds with the increased use of oral contraceptives in this age group. Liver cancer in women on the pill is typically associated with those over 30 who have used it more than four years, but cases of liver cancer in younger women have been cited.

    Other cancers: Skin cancer [melanoma] has also been found to increase among women on the pill. Naturally occurring estrogen is involved with maintaining healthy skin tissue. It is reasonable to suspect that exposure to the more potent synthetic estrogen in the pill increases the risk of this type of cancer.

    Cycle irregularities

    Women who take the pill have been reported to experience bleeding or spotting in mid-cycle, changes in menstrual flow, and even loss of menstruation, which can lead them to wonder if they are pregnant. For some, painful menstruation [dysmenorrhea] has been reported to worsen, even though many women take these hormones in an attempt to relieve the problem.48

    Although some women are given the pill for irregular cycles, it does nothing to improve the underlying problem causing the irregularity. Often the irregularity returns when the pill is discontinued, sometimes more severely.

    Are there other side effects?

    Yes. Some side effects are minor while some may be more severe and call for discontinuing the drug.

    The following adverse effects have been experienced by women on the pill:

    Headaches, migraines, mental depression [even to the point of suicide and/or suicidal tendencies], a decrease or loss of sexual drive, abdominal cramps, bloating, weight gain or loss, and water retention; nausea and vomiting [in about 10% of users]; symptoms of PMS, vaginitis and vaginal infections, changes in vision [temporary or permanent blindness, and an intolerance to contact lenses]; gall bladder disease and either temporary or permanent infertility, when discontinuing the pill, in users with previous menstrual irregularities or who began the drug before full maturity. Several of the symptoms, such as migraine headaches, contraindicate the use of the pill because of life endangering complications.

    Consult the Physicians’ Desk Reference at your public library or consult your pharmacist for a more complete list of the pill’s harmful effects.

    Is the pill safer than pregnancy?

    No. The health risks of the pill outweigh by far the risks of pregnancy and childbirth to a woman’s health, and any claim to the contrary is based on erroneous comparisons between healthy women on the pill and women who do not receive normal care during pregnancy.

    A precondition for obtaining the pill is routine medical care and checkups. For example: if such a woman on the pill is diagnosed as precancerous, or if some other side effect is exhibited, she has the advantage of early detection. However, many pregnant women do not receive routine medical care. A clearer picture of the safety of the pill compared to the safety of pregnancy would be made if healthy women receiving routine medical care during pregnancy and delivery were compared with women receiving routine medical care while taking the pill.

    The mortality statistics of childbirth have continuously declined since the early part of this century, mostly due to better maternal healthcare. Most of the high risk pregnancies and deliveries occur to women who have not sought proper medical attention. This is most evident in the third world where adequate health care is sparse.

    Mortality statistics of pregnancy and delivery, usually called maternal mortality, include the mortality rates due to abortion. Abortion is clearly used as birth control, preventing the birth of the child; therefore it must be included with the mortality statistics of birth control methods. In one study, 25% to 50% of the reported maternal mortality was a result of deaths from abortion.

    Fifty percent of woman taking the pill discontinue it within the first year because of side effects, the development of benign breast disease, or some abnormality of the sexual organs. Studies of pill usage do not include these women, and the result is an unbalanced picture of only the healthiest of women who tolerate the pill. This is compared with the general population of women who are pregnant.

    The fact is that there are 13.8 million women in the U.S. and 60 million women worldwide who use the pill [conservative numbers]. And there are 7.9 pill-related deaths per 100,000 women ages 15-44.

    Therefore, one can calculate that there are over 1090 deaths each year in the U.S. alone simply due to the pill.

    But I’ve heard there are no side effects with the pill I use.


    All drugs, including all brands of the birth control pill, have potential side effects. There is no telling in advance how any particular woman will react to the pill, but there is a good chance of some type of reaction. It is possible that a woman will be unaware that there is any connection between the reaction and the pill especially if it takes years to manifest itself.

    Aren’t there any therapeutic benefits from the pill?

    The only indication, or use for the pill that is approved by the Food and Drug Administration is the prevention of pregnancy in women ... as a method of contraception. Some unapproved uses, considered experimental, include its use as a morning after pill [causing an early abortion], and for relief from the symptoms of mild endometriosis.

    I’m breastfeeding my baby; can I use the pill?

    No. Artificial hormones pass from breast milk to the baby; the pill also decreases both the quantity and protein content of the milk produced.

    What is my alternative to using the pill?


    Natural Family Planning is safe, healthy and effective and it’s also inexpensive. A woman observes and records changes in her basal body temperature, the normal flow of cervical mucus, and if she wishes, the physical changes in the cervix itself. She then cross-checks these signs of fertility to follow, day by day, the natural course of her fertility cycle. No drugs, no devices, no surgical procedures, no threat of death, no side effects, no chemical abortions!

    Does NFP really work?

    Yes. Married couples can achieve a 99% effectiveness if they learn the method, correctly interpret the fertility signs, and follow the rules. One positive side benefit for couples who are committed to making this method work is the potential for a healthier marriage — psychologically, physically and spiritually.

    How can I find out more about Natural Family Planning?

    I ask you to secure yourself with a Holy Spirit seat belt as you, the reader, and I have dialogue throughout this blog. Why am I even writing this today, July 2, 2009? My heart is heavy; I’m so very saddened by the choices of a few specific people I deeply care for.

    But we all have free choice, right, even as Christians. And along with our free choices, comes the free consequences whether good or bad for each and every choice each of us makes.

    I’m sure you identify with my feelings, right? You want the absolute best, which is God’s best, for those you love and they choose repeated choices that lead to bondage, which they call, “but I’m happy.”

    I’m left with the following questions and thoughts that have been pounding in my brain like a sledge hammer since 7 am during my daily morning 5.14 mile walk.

    Question 1
    Lord, I say I love you because that’s the politically-correct Christian thing to say, but I’m really consumed with myself and what makes me happy? You come somewhere down the line Lord; I gotta take care of me – no one else will.

    Question 2
    Lord, why isn’t the following question a part of my daily, mental grid as a Christian. What decision for my life would please You today Lord that aligns with Your biblical principles?

    Question 3
    Am I really that selfish Lord that my choices, my actions don’t even take into consideration what’s best for me [according to Your will] or my child/children. Wow Lord – I must really be hurting deeply and even living detached from my family to forsake what’s best for them and I’ve been entrusted to be a steward over them.

    Thought 1
    I really don’t know how to deal with the quiet, subliminal pain inside, so I gotta do something daily or weekly to distract me from me. I call it – making myself happy. Satan rejoices because he calls it – gotcha.

    Thought 2
    Why do I keep repeating actions and choices that I know aren’t good for me Lord? Aahh, I did it again. Although I’ve not wanted to call it what it is, I have some percentage of self hatred operating in my life. What else could explain the choices I make and the choices others that I love make that do not lead to the abundant life You promised for me or them?

    Lord, Why Don't I Care How You Feel … What Make You Happy

    Now, Beloved reader, where did all of this start? Allow me to share a few things that have saddened my heart.

    One
    A divorced, single parent gets pregnant two more times by the new person they are seeing.
    The person is Christian, smart, attractive and educated.
    The divorced parent chooses to allow the new person they are dating to move into their home.
    The divorced parent has a child in elementary school.
    They plan to marry someday.

    Two
    A single person who was molested as a child has a senior leadership position in a church.
    This person has received Holy Spirit healing for this strategy that was planned very early by the demonic for their life.
    This single person lives with another single person in their local church who is also in a leadership position.
    The head leader of the church remains quiet.

    Three
    Ty Adams has written a new book that I’ve not read.
    From what I understand it addresses the rampant sexual immorality in the body of Christ.
    Any person, in this case, Ty Adams, who chooses to state the Lord’s unwavering, uncompromised standards in 2009 loves the Lord and chooses The Truth.

    Four
    The fact that people are forgetting that Michael Jackson was a human, a son, a father, a friend, a brother, a uncle and a child of the Lord – saddens me. Many throughout the world are mourning and grieving including me. There’s been an utter disrespect to his family that he is loved globally and this time of bereavement is to be respected for any human being. In America, we have a court system and the court found him not guilty. In our democracy, this is where it ends. The establishment of government is biblical, even though there are many shortcomings.

    Five
    Daily I listen to the media, interact with Christians, listen to Internet radio, read letters from a federal prisoner who writes me, look at Oprah’s talk show sporadically and look at award shows on tv – it’s devastatingly apparent, don’t nobody hardly give a flipping care about – what the Lord thinks, what makes the Lord happy, what pleases the Lord.

    Beloved reader, it breaks my heart – need I say more. The witness of every Christian is a combination of our conversation, character and conduct. And to be direct with you here, actions still speak louder than words. Folks, including many Christians, simply don’t give a rat’s patuddy about what the Lord thinks.

    Lord, Why Don't I Care How You Feel … What Makes You Happy

    Well, let me offer a few answers to the questions and thoughts I’ve posed above. What is the basis on the responses I’m getting ready to share with you?

    The principles, covenants, commandments, contingencies, prophecies and the universal law of reaping and sowing in the Bible;
    My experience in healing and deliverance; and, my colleagues experience globally in in healing and deliverance.

    Those we love in our life hurt deeply.
    They hurt so much more than they’ll ever share with you.

    Let’s quickly look at one common coping mechanism of Christians. I’ll keep myself surrounded with middle-of-the-road Christians that way I don’t feel so bad about my public and private choices.

    A wise Christian once imparted to me, your left hand should be outstretched upwards for those who are where you want to be are pulling you upwards. Your right hand is outstretched downwards, and you are pulling those who desire to be where you are at. There’s a small inner circle of people who should surround you.

    Your inner circle are those appointed by the Holy Spirit who actively participate in having their own lives healed and who strategically sow the following in your life -- support, counsel, advocate, a regular lover of the Word of God and they hold you accountable in a loving Christ-like manner.

    Many Christians are so weak, they continue to relish in the world’s standards. Why are many Christians weak? Would you consider taking a survey from seven people you know well by the end of this week? Ask how much time they spent daily in the past seven days with the Lord including study, meditation and fasting [fasting is a regular part of the Christian lifestyle].

    Quite simply, strength comes from the Holy Spirit and His Word. Making Godly choices comes from having God’s perspective mapped in your heart and mind. There are only four ways I know to achieve this that humans can employ – read, listen, write and recite.

    I heard someone pray earlier this year for God to release a person from the consequences of having committed adultery. My spirit quickened and the scripture God is not a respector of people popped in my mind like red neon lights. The ways, character and attributes of the Holy Spirit are like a two-sided coin, a penny for example. On one side there’s love, grace and mercy and on the other side of this same coin is justice, judgment and wrath. It still baffles me why Christians do not equally teach about this other side of God.

    The main issue with interacting with God as only having one side is we are then engaging in a game of Russian roulette. Because the Holy Spirit is gracious, doesn’t mean He’s foolish. And the Lord specifically determines for each of us the day and what will be the last time He’ll extend his grace and mercy in a first time or repeated choice we continue to make.

    The operating of generational curses are so real and active in Christians lives that many Christians simply don’t identify the daily and weekly manifestations of these generational curses as what they truly are. For example, someone shares they’ve had repeated extra-marital affairs in a casual conversation.

    This same person on another day mentions their child had a sleepover and overheard the very young children saying, “I’m going to _uck you to death.” The same person says casually on another week that their mother has had a life of promiscuity. This same person shares in yet another week casually that their cousins engage in bisexual relationships. This same person says, “You know what, I just remember that my grandmother was molested too like I was.”

    Beloved reader, I counted four generations of sexual immorality as I listened in the spirit to these casual conversations that took place over a number of weeks. These are not merely choices of each person. There is a BONA FIDE generational curse of sexual immorality rampant in this family line that can easily be broken in less than 30 minutes. I pray that if you see repetition in your life or your family’s life – learn, study, examine and break each generational curse and command the respective demons assigned to EACH CURSE operating in your life to leave.

    LORD, WHY DON’T I CARE HOW YOU FEEL … WHAT MAKES YOU HAPPY

    Holy Spirit, I give you permission to do heart surgery on my heart?

    Why Lord, do I choose to give you this permission?

    Because what saddens You, I want to sadden me since I'm choosing to work on being more like You as one of Your devoted followers.

    Why Lord, do I choose to give you this permission to do heart surgery on my heart?

    Because what please You Lord, I want to please me.

    Change my heart, soften it where it needs softening.

    Remove from it the ills and worldly vices that I've become to familiar with.

    Create in me a clean heart, O Lord, I choose You and make my heart most sensitive to Your ways, Your principles in my life.

    In the name of Jesus, I pray, I expect and I thank you.
