Rejection Is the Root of All Heart Issues

“By definition, rejection is a two edged sword. It can come into a person when that person is rejected (denied love and acceptance) and it can cause as much damage even when the person perceives that they are being rejected. The rejection is real to him, regardless if it is real or not. Rejection can also come out of a person when they refuse to agree to, submit to, or believe an established norm. i.e. rebellion, stubbornness, or refusal to believe truth” (Null, 1996)

How does this affect those who have been on either side of that sword?  Well, rejection is the root of all other heart issues. It causes fear and pride. A person who accepts rejection with acceptance will experience fear. If he refuses the rejection  then pride enters.  All fruit of rejection is classified as works of the flesh.

How did this affect me? I felt rejected most of my life. As a little girl, I was the only blonde haired person in my family. Not to mention that my mother told me that I was “the milkman’s daughter” on various occasions, especially when she was introducing me to friends that would stop over. When you are 3, if your mother tells other people, you are the milkman’s daughter you tend to start asking questions to yourself. Was it true?  ”No” it wasn’t. The enemy tended to use my mother a lot as I was growing up. She always made comments about how different I was from the rest of my siblings. She was not an affectionate individual and this too played into the rejection card. She had a hard time showing love and receiving love. This is hard for a little girl who needs the real unconditional love of her mother. I always felt different in my family, as if there was something different about me. I felt like a round peg in a square hole. Rejection allows the enemy to set up camp in you if you allow it to. It’s like a huge open door for the enemy to bring all of his friends.  Satan tells you that you have every right to feel anger and hatred for the wrong that has been done to you, God says, let me use it to teach you humbleness. This is what happened to me. Just as God allowed Saul to feel rejection, Saul used it to turn his heart against David for fear that he would take Saul’s place as king, to the point where he wanted to kill him. If Saul would have just repented, things would have been different for him.   God uses judgement and rejection to delete pride out of us. Saul was chosen because of his humility and rejected because of his pride.

It enabled  me to see that God allowed all of the rejection in my life to bring me to the point that I buckled under the weight of it. Whether I had received rejection by my mother’s comments, or I refused the truth and lived by my own standards, it brought me to the same conclusion. Apart from the Lord, I could not do anything. I couldn’t remove it by myself and I couldn’t be saved unless He saved me. With the Holy Spirit breaking my heart, drawing me to the Cross it produced Godly sorrow for doing things my own way for all of those years. With my heart turned, I repented and God saved me.

HOW SATAN ENSLAVES WITH TRAUMA

When a person experiences extreme fear through a traumatic experience, demons will jump into them.  I’m talking about a rape, being held at gunpoint, even a head on car collision, or a long fall down a steep hill.  The trauma itself produces the fear in the targeted person, so that a demon can have a permanent home in the person. THE FEAR IS WHAT THE ENEMY IS AFTER. In my deliverance counseling practice, I have come in contact with several cases of demonic oppression that was caused by sudden and extreme fear.

To back me up is an online book written by Cisco Wheeler and Fritz Springmeier called “the Universal Shifts of Consciousness.” Cisco and Springmeir are former Illuminati mind control programmers who are now Christians.   In summary, When the victims of fear reach out for some kind of an answer, the demons disguise themselves by offering  their own solution.  Here is what they have so astutely reported about how the enemy uses trauma in Chapter 10:

The demons offer some type of answer–so many Hail Marys, or so many sacrificed cats, or pray to some idol which is a disguised demon. The lies are turned into myths which the people believe. The myths are a blurring of reality which the people on one level may know are false, but their minds can’t break loose of the power of the lie. The power of the myths are fueled by tradition and demonic manifestations and demonic attacks.Anyone who steps outside of the demonic lie is attacked. The people feel they are being personally attacked when their traditions are ignored. Because a people has willingly sacrificed the truth for the falsehood in their need for relief from their trauma, they have chosen to be deceived. This choice to be deceived has a great deal of spiritual power to it. They are no longer truth-lovers. It is not enough to come to these people with the truth. They have rejected the truth. They must at some point will to seek the truth again.

These people can have all the proof shown to them about the truth, and they will continue to reject it. Their demonic bondage needs to be broken somehow.This bondage can be broken in a number of ways. Pointing out the inadequacies of the lies is sometimes sufficient to break the demonic spell over people. But after the lies are broken, they need to be followed by the truth–and the love of truth.

In my own words, taken from “Faces of the Religious Demon,” you will find my own assent to Cisco and Fritz:

37 years a licensed counselor, 30 years a minister

“A nugget of truth may be extremely painful or it may immediately bring joy, exhilaration or relief.  If received as pain, the captive may feel that the insight is a threat. 

He might also perceive any new revelation as ‘opening a can of worms,’ and thereby

FACES OF THE RELIGIOUS DEMON

become discouraged or depressed because he perceives that he is facing too many changes, too sonn.  As a deliverance counselor, I align my stance with that of the Savior’s. Jesus declared that once truth is known, it will set one free.  Yet He did not guarantee that the price of freedom would not be painful.  Even so, for a captive to become free to express who he really is, relieved from having to repress his emotions for so long, I believe that the pain is worth it. “

In my deliverance counseling/mentoring program called Spiritual Empowerment Workshop (SEW), we are dedicated to truth.  Truth sometimes hurts but it is the only answer to trauma.  Jesus Himself is the truth.  You shall know the truth and the truth shall MAKE you free, for God did not give you a spirit of fear but a spirit of a sound mind.
