People Pleasing, the Flesh and Resisting the Devil

By Pastor Pam

Consider Jonah and his disobedience and sudden flight from God to a ship filled with men about to be shipwrecked because of Jonah’s folly. So to find out why they suddenly entered into a severe storm, the men on board cast lots and the lot fell to Jonah. Once Jonah was revealed, he confessed. You would have thought that the men would have immediately picked up Jonah and thrown him off of the ship. Instead, they tried to row faster. Yet when all human effort failed, they reluctantly threw Jonah overboard and peace immediately prevailed for them.

Why didn’t Jonah just jump overboard himself? Perhaps it was not physically possible and he needed someone to lift him up and cast him into the sea. My suspicion is that as it is in most cases, the people who are bringing storms into our lives are “all about self,” especially when their needs are being met by us.

However what I have learned by experience, is that once the cause of an attack has been uncovered or revealed to me, my next step is to refuse. Sometimes you have to refuse a condition or persuasion that is within your personality or in other words, a refusal may have to be made to your flesh.

For example, if you are a person that must be liked or approved of by others, you will have to refuse your flesh in this regard. If you can answer an emphatic “yes,” to the following statements as conditions of your own flesh, refusal will eventually be in order, if you are going to effectively resist the devil:

• I try to avoid being alone

• I let other people decide what to do.

• I get upset when people don’t include me in their activities;

• I am stressed if I don’t include other people in my plans;

• I am easily led;

• I hate any form of confrontation;

• I can’t stand being left out of things;

• I am emotionally dependent upon people.

So one way to crucify your flesh is by refusing to act out its nature.

Besides refusing your former nature without Christ, there are times when you also have to refuse your former perception or understanding as it relates to spiritual and religious matters. In fact, refusal is one of the ways that we cast down our imaginations, and every thought that is contrary to our obedience to the inner leadings of the Holy Ghost.

For example, if you have assumed that God would not allow the enemy to deceive you under any circumstances, to resist the devil that is assigned to you, you will have to refuse every thought connected to this false assumption. I personally know from experience that I can be deceived by the enemy because I have been, several times in fact.

Here is a personal example. It has been revealed to me that in 1996, I founded a church based upon the nature of my flesh and the leading of the religious demon assigned to me. Certainly, I believed that I was led by God at the time. However, with the discernment and the enlightenment that I have received over time, I can look back now with such understanding. What was confusing and complicated in 1996 is obvious and simple today.

Once my eyes were fully opened in 2008, I had to exercise refusal by closing the church doors. Certainly I had to face opposition to closing it. In fact, for a year, services continued in a members home, until her eyes were also opened and the doors of the church were permanently shut, never to open again.

As soon as I took the first step of refusal as I resisted the devil, the next revelation followed. Since the enemy was the secret force that led me to start this church in the first place, it logically and spiritually follows that each and every person who played a significant role in its operations was sent by the enemy also. In 13 years, several people were involved. Out of all of them, I have contact with two persons from the former church.

I published a e-book entitled Be Delivered From Deliverance Ministry”.  If you have been in  bondage to people pleasing with deliverance workers who caused your spiritual and physical condition to worsen, you need this book.  If you have ever been in a deliverance session that lasted longer than 5 minutes, this book is for you.  If you have read a lot of books on deliverance ministry, this book will un-ravel the confusion and de-mystify how to cast out demons.

Setting Captives Free

Setting Captives Free

In the beginning of my work in deliverance counseling in 2002 , I was  shocked and horrified at the manifestations that emanated from professing Christians. To hear even tongue talkers be used by demons to roar, growl and shout blasphemies that include 4
letter words is so astounding, that it can be rather “disconcerting” to say the least.  What I have found is that religious demons are now dwelling in the human spirit of professing Christians, the place which is intended for the Holy Ghost. I have also learned   that these demons must be cast out first, before the Holy Ghost will enter.

This is a formidable task because religiosity has become “a high
tower” in the lives of the lost who insist that they are saved. This high tower must be pulled down by truth, brick by brick. Simply put ,to reach a churchgoer
who believes that he is saved because he repeated a
sinner’s prayer and accepted Jesus “into his heart” is like trying to put a camel through the eye of a needle. But as the Lord declared,”what is impossible for men is possible with God.”

 I marvel at what the Lord is doing. Compelling case studies are presented in “Faces of the Religious Demon.”

Grieved and quenched, it has been my experience that the Holy Ghost will not move either the called or the chosen by the “free will” method because the gospel has not been properly preached. Since faith comes by hearing the gospel, we need to understand “what the gospel is.” The gospel is plain and simple yet very rarely heard in what is commonly known as “a sermon.” In fact, most sermons heard in churches today are “not the gospel of Jesus Christ.”

They may be interesting, inspiring, enthusiastic, joyous, dramatic, charismatic and even
life changing relative to coping with the natural challenges and circumstances of life. Yet, unless the gospel of the kingdom is preached in every sermon, the Holy Ghost will not draw anyone to the cross and without the cross, no one will be saved. You may cry, shout, jump up and even fall on your face yet without the complete truth, there will be
no   fruit that leads to eternal life.

Here is the dilemma. If you believe that you are saved but you have had a false conversion, you will not be delivered.  Deliverance is based upon truth. As Jesus said, when we know and accept the truth, the truth will MAKE us free. The acceptance of truth will cause fallen angels to walk away from you and cause demons to come out of their hiding place within your soul. Captives will be set free and deliverance  will be made EASY!

Renewing of the Mind

RENEWING OF THE MIND

Paul wrote to the Romans, “be not conformed to THIS world but be transformed by the renewing of the mind so that you can prove the perfect will of God for your life.” He also warned the Corinthians about casting down imaginations and thoughts  that could exalt themselves ABOVE the knowledge of God. Paul implied that  all thoughts could be “captured” and brought into obedience to the will of God. We know the general will of God from His word.  However, it is the Holy Ghost Who provides the direction of our individual lives   once our minds have been renewed.

Therefore, a renewed mind precedes knowing what God’s will for US is.

So I suggest to you that discovering the will of God for your life involves a renewal. There are some key points that I would like to underscore:

  • We are what we THINK we are. Our thoughts have power to draw both evil and godly energy.  If we have practiced negative self talk, in the same manner, we should consciously practice godly self talk.  Godly thought will bring about godly talk. Godly talk will bring forth the fruits of victory in casting down evil thoughts.
  • A part of renewing the soul is to learn how to deal with what is uncomfortable. Walking on the sands of  a beautiful  beach on a hot sunny day has its comforts and delights.  However,if  the sand is very “hot,”  it is difficult to walk on it.  Struggles and failures supply the necessary preparation to learn how to “walk on hot sand.”.
  • Where deliverance from demonic oppression is concerned, torment can be a blessing.  Torment wipes out the delusion that “all is well” and knocks off the rose-colored glasses. The tormented one is pressured to search for answers and solutions–something that he would not have even considered if he had not desperately sought release from the torment.
  • Anyone who makes decisions either by the influence of an unrenewed mind or emotions is usually weak in his or her will. The will is the organ that examines, distinguishes, judges and makes decisions based upon the information received from the mind and the emotions.
  • Choices can often be long-lasting and unchangeable. We can make the choice but we cannot choose the outcome or the repercussion. In other words, we can choose to sin but we cannot choose the wages of that sin.
  • One of the fallacies is that we assume that we have time to change.  When physical death appears to be “far off,” our will power tends to procrastinate and take chances.  However, when death is a daily reality, we learn to live and make choices that prolong our days.

Once we discover what we need to learn about our own inner struggles, there are other people who will need our testimony and our influence so that that too can be victorious.  A major purpose of struggling is that we can become consolers of those who are struggling in those areas where we have become triumphant.  By planting new seeds of power into our minds, old patterns and habits will be destroyed by the resurrection power of the Holy Ghost.  In a symbolic  context, the seeds are as Jesus said. They are the words of  fruitbearing power.

There is a trained minister with a testimony of “How I Walked on Hot Sand,” waiting to mentor YOU

At Sheppard’s Counseling Center, ministers are trained in a unique deliverance mentoring  program called SEW, Spiritual Empowerment Workshop.The principles of the SEW Program are presented in the book “Recovery In Christ.”  These are ministers who have overcome torment, walked on hot sand, and survived.  From domestic violence, to rape, to incest, to alcoholism,  to parents and grandparents who were practicing witchcraft, these men and women are overcomers. They have a testimony that you need.

Leave Church: Why? Part 2

As I pointed out in Part 1, when I was led out of a denomination as an active pastor, I expected to be sent to another church affiliation.  So I waited.  I waited 3 years when I heard a voice say to me that “He had already judged the church and that the Holy Ghost war not there any longer. In fact, I was also informed that the Holy Ghost had left the church BEFORE I ARRIVED IN 1979!

That was another major shock.  I did not want to believe that who I had heard from was the Lord. So I began with the premise that I had heard from the devil.  The choice was easy.  Either God or the devil.It was definitely not my own soul who  spoke to me.You see,   I had become addicted to church and I did not want to go through a sudden, un-planned detox.  I had also become habituated to preaching and pastoring a congregation.  so a cold turkey withdrawal from the organized church system was too much, even for a vivid imagination like mine to conceive.

So to try the spirits to see if they be of God, I decided to study church history. I figured if the Holy Ghost had left the church, signs would be evident somewhere in 2000 years of church history. Then something happened that added to my investigation.  As I watched a video clip of a worship service led by evangelist Cindy Trimm, as hundreds fell slain like ocean waves, Trimm proclaimed “I thank you Father, that the spirit of Ashtar has fallen upon the people.”

Ashtar? Who is Ashtar?  He sounded vaguely familiar to me  from the old testament. There was a god, a fallen angel I remembered  named Ashtaroth. So I began to google and to google some more and I found the being who calls himself “Ashtar” to new age occultists. I learned that Ashtar reports to yet another fallen angel who is known as Jesus Sananda Immanuel.  I continued to study and I discovered that Sananda reports to a being called Maitreya. Maitreya’s rhetoric as channeled through various psychic mediums  read a lot like the Anti-Christ.

My studies and notes  turned into 220 pages, the book  “the Fake Jesus:Fallen Angels Among Us.” ( ebook www.lulu.com/content/12044954  and the soft cover www.lulu.com/content/2716532)  In a nut shell, besides studying church history, I reviewed the writings communicated to various occult channels via fallen angels.I tried the spirits for ONE whole year. Once the project was completed, I came to an un-deniable conclusion.  II had heard from the Lord.  The organized church is in the same condition as a boarded up, inner city condemned building. The Holy Ghost is NOT there

.
Satan began to progressively establish a seat within church divisions, sects and organization since the organization of the church in the third century.If you are born again and you still attend church, the Holy Ghost will speak to you.  He may use a written blog or a book, a dream, whatever.  He may use hypocrites and haters to run you out.  If you are in the church and you have had a false conversion, if you are one of the elect, the enemy is waving a license to keep you in God’s face.  The fake Jesus stands on his rights because YOU invited him to come into you  when you repeated a sinner’s prayer, “accepted” Jesus and invited him into your heart. Sananda is the one you are worshiping.  He did not lie to his occult followers when he told them that he is in control of the organized Christian Church.

I heard from God.  That is enough to keep me out of the organized church.

 Perhaps my testimony is not enough for YOU.  That is okay.  I am assured if you belong to Jesus Christ of Nazareth, the Holy Spirit will speak to you and lead you out. You may have to stand alone as I stand. Believe me, Beloved. It is not so bad on my side or from  my viewpoint. If I am wrong, He will correct me.  This is my faith.  I stand on it.

WHAT TO DO ABOUT FALSE CONVERSIONS Part 1

False conversions.  I call them “counterfeit births.” I suspect that false conversions are the major sign of the great falling away. Clearly, it is rather obvious, even to the least spiritual among us in the world and in the religious world that there is certainly something wrong when there exists such a state of utter religious confusion and doctrinal mumbo jumbo.  An understanding of today’s dilemma was prophesied by the Apostle Paul in his revelation to Timothy when Paul wrote that in the last days, some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits and doctrines of devils.

Evidently, the primary demonic strategy is deception. Deception is the first stage of the falling away process. One of the goals of this blog is to un-complicate things. So I personally took the first step of self-examination.  Once I discovered that there is a fake Jesus, the first thing that I did was to confront the issue of my own salvation, head on.  Since it was so supernatural in nature,  after more than two decades, I asked myself “Pam, are you REALLY saved?  I did what Paul recommended to the Corinthians as recorded in II Cor. 13:5: I examined myself to see if I be in the faith.  I proved my self.  I examined myself to see if Jesus Christ be IN me.

Now to be IN me is not a physical or a soulical thing.  Jesus is not IN my heart because my heart is a part of my soul.  No, by the power of the Holy Ghost, He is in my spirit.  I examined myself by John 15, to see if there is any fruit in my life.  What is fruit?  I will address that in yet another post.  However, there were 3 things I looked for.  Did I experience godly sorrow that worked repentance in me.  Did I see my own sinful nature?  Was I drawn to the cross or led to the Lord’s sacrifice by the Holy Ghost.  Did I understand the resurrection the day I was saved.  I realized that I have to first understand it in order to believe that a dead man lives in a physical body, who is now seated at the right hand of God.

I knew BEFORE I even examined my salvation that I was born again.  However, I examined it ANYWAY.

So what do you do about a false conversion.  You start with YOU.  More in part 2.

SHAKE YOUR SALVATION TREE AND SEE IF ANY FRUIT FALLS

 

   
  What I am about to ask you to do is to “step outside of your personal situation” and see the broader picture for a brief moment.  The problem for all of us is that it is natural for us to be egocentric.  In other words, everything that goes on in the world revolves around us and our immediate situation. I’m asking you to step outside of the boundaries of your own self created circle and consider the state of the organized church system from a historical not a hysterical perspective. Imagine that an operation was done in a hospital on a person who had a communicable disease but no one knew he was infected  at the time. The doctors and staff were  extremely skilled, the hospital was reputable. They simply did not know that the person that was operated on had a disease that would spread and affect everyone. So the operating room was contaminated in spite of their usual efforts to scrub and sanitize it. The contamination spread throughout the hospital. Everyone who came in there was innocent, not knowing what was going on. Disease continued to spread from one person to the other, because no one properly investigated the cause.

Who is to blame? Is it the hospital? The one with the disease? No. It is the enemy. He planted an evil within the organized church system.

ALL are affected by it. There are no exceptions or special cases.

This is the nature of the church age that we live in, the church at Laodicea. Everyone has been contaminated by false and mixed doctrine and practices for at least 100 years or more. Everyone has been deceived, across the board. 

If you are willing to “shake your salvation tree,” your willingness to do so is a  positive sign that your name   actually IS written in heaven.  The first thing that needs to be pointed out is that names written in heaven were penned before the worlds were framed.  In other words, you are one of the elect, whether deceived or not.  If you have been deceived, God will move heaven and earth to bring the light of truth into your confusion and with that light of truth will come both peace and power.

So know this:  GOD IS ALWAYS IN CONTROL!!!! If you have been deceived, the Lord will see to it that the blinders are ripped off of your spiritual eyes. As it is in the natural, sudden light hitting the eyes is painful.  Yet, once the pain subsides, sight and clear vision is worth rejoicing over.  

As a word of hope and deliverance to those of you who have been deceived in church or by people who professed to be Christians, I advise you to stay true to the light because darkness will often be too uncomfortable to stay around the light.  The darkness in the conscience of those of you who are under bondage to either religiosity or charismatic witchcraft will cause you to either humble yourselves and seek deliverance or to lose all ability to discern good from evil.  Hopefully, you will be genuinely convicted and reborn in the spirit. 

 To fight off delusion and obsession, you must continue to search your own life by the spirit, praying to the Father of Lights, “Lord, I want the unfruitful works of darkness in my life to be exposed.  Show up, demon!  Show yourself!!”

Once you pray in this manner, demons will be exposed all around you and your understanding will be enlightened. Not only will your own tree be shaken, but everybody around you will be exposed, one way or another.  So hold onto your seatbelts, Beloved.  Its quite a bumpy  yet an exciting ride!!!

SHOULD THE REMNANT PREPARE FOR THE TRIBULATION?

To me, that question is a no-brainer.  Why would the Lord warn the last generation of His people about the tribulation, if they were not going to go through it?  Some respond by saying that we don’t have to prepared for the tribulation because we will be raptured. I personally believe that the rapture is a false doctrine.  Most church generations never even heard of it until it was concocted by some Catholic Jesuit a few centuries ago. 

So why do I believe that we should prepare?  Well, it looks to me that we may very well BE that last generation.  The Apostle John’s revelation suggests that during the reign of the Anti-Christ, unless we accept the mark of the beast, whatever THAT is–we will not be able to buy or sell.  Anyway, money is going to continue to loses its value and the remnant may have to survive by stocking up and bartering with each other.

Other’s of us say, “Well, I don’t have to prepare because the Lord will provide for His people supernaturally.I certainly know that to be the truth.  When I was unemployed in the 70’s, I’d find money laying in the street and food in my refrigerator that I didn’t put there. So I personally know about the supernatural provision of the Lord.  However, another way that He “provides” is by warning His people ahead of time to “stock up.”  Remember Joseph in Egypt? Remember how God warned him of the 7 year famine and told him to stock up grain while it was still available?  I believe that the supernatural power of the loaves and fishes miracle that manifested in the Lord’s earthy ministry will be available to His people who must “go through.” However, miracles operated according to the will of the Holy Ghost.  I can’t plan on a miracle. 

Recently, I have had 3 spiritual reminders, the last one was a very clear dream.  One day, we are going to look up and the electricity will be down, the water will be contaminated and the supermarket will be closed. How and why does this happen?  I don’t know.  I just saw that it WILL happen.  We just had Hurricane Irene pass through my town and we were warned for a few days before she hit us.  I was blessed to have been sitting in a spot where Irene passed like just a rainy day.  However, just a block away, power was down, and a few miles away was devastation that people are still recovering from.  One of the things I did not like was that I said to myself, “Better go get a flash light.”  Well, they were ALL gone, from EVERY store.

Irene provided me with  my  personal sign.  Prepare ahead of time!!!! Also, Irene is my middle name and the name of my beloved grandmother.

In my latest book, “the New Idolatry,” you will find these words:

“I perceive some basic principles that can be gleaned from an exploration of how God delivered His people out of the hands of Pharoah to understand how He will also deliver the remnant elect out of the hands of the Antichrist when He opens the 7 vial and the 7 seal judgments outlined by the Apostle John in the book of Revelation.These judgments or plagues are listed in the 8th chapter: earthquakes, the sea becomes blood, 1/3 of the creatures of the sea die, 1/3 of the rivers and waters are contaminated, darkness with 1/3 of the light turned off of the moon, the sun and the stars, locusts that torment the unsaved for 5 months, and 1/3 of men killed by war.  Endtime plagues certainly bear noticeable similarities to the 10 wonders that came upon Egypt, ie. the contamination of water, weather disturbances, death of sea creatures, darkness, and death, with God’s people being protected.”

I OWE MY MINISTRY TO A WOMAN OF GOD, JESSIE PENN LEWIS.

My online  ministry has been birthed through vision. In 1990, I knew nothing about the Internet.  One night I  dreamt that I was flying with the Holy Ghost over the city.  Looking down I saw a 12 mile line of people, stretching down the highway from Albany to Selkirk. The Spirit said “Pam, do you see that line down there? You are going to minister to  every one of those people.”  “Where?” I asked.  He pointed to a little house and said “from there.” To the east.  Over the years, I wondered how I  could minister to  so many people in one lifetime in that little house.  It would have to take a lifetime and perhaps a large staff.  Only in recent years have I  understood the humor of the Holy Ghost.  Today, the Internet is called the Highway, and when we use “the Highway” we are “on line!” I now live in that little place in the east.  Shortly after I had begun to work with captives on line in December 2002, that the Holy Ghost spoke again.  I was working on the computer in 2003 when  I heard Him whisper, “Pam, look, you are now “on line” on the Super Internet Highway.

I have really been walking by faith, out here “on line.” Nine years ago, I really didn’t have a clue. Now I have a sense of what the mission is.  I am to prepare the remnant church for endtime events.  A part of that preparation is to train ministers that the Lord has called to the remnant harvest field. Every bit of work that I do also connects to unveiling the deception perpetrated by fallen angels and demons. Only second to preaching the gospel in His Great Commission, the Lord Jesus Christ  instructed His disciples to go forth and cast out demons in His Name by the power of the Holy Ghost. (Mark 16:17)  In the Lord’s day and time, this was a rather simple instruction. 

During His ministry, Jesus did not have to teach, defend or explain the existence of the unseen world because the people   grasped the reality of demons without difficulty.  In fact,   both natural and   spiritual discernment of evil spirits was commonplace.  For example, when a  woman of Canaan came to Jesus on behalf of her daughter,  He did not have to convince or persuade her  that her daughter was demonized. This  Canaanite mother was certainly not ignorant as she cried out  to Jesus “my daughter is severely vexed with a devil.”  It is obvious from the scripture that she understood  what demonic oppression entailed. (Matthew 15:2)

 Yet, almost two thousand years later, the ignorance of bible toting people of God concerning the powers of darkness has caused my books and my deliverance mentoring model   to be both vital and necessary. In truth,  Satan has been extremely successful over the centuries to not only keep the church in the dark about himself and his devices, but the religious demon  has actually been able to manipulate the organized church to even  promote Satan’s sinister agenda.    

Almost one hundred years ago, Jessie Penn-Lewis, in collaboration with Evangelist Evan Roberts wrote a life-saving and life changing book entitled “War on the Saints.” As indicated in my dedication, this book has no competition or comparison.   Simply put, the pain of opening my blind eyes to how the religious demon had deceived me palled to the astounding  joy that truth brings.   “War on the Saints”  literally set me free, equipped me to serve. On October 25, 1911, I will have been in ministry for 30 years.  It was all a training ground for what is about to transpire very soon.

I hope my books do the same in this hour.  If my books help you, it was because of a woman who died in 1915 yet still lives today through her astounding, life changing books. Without Jessie, I would still be imprisoned in a denomination, pastoring cold, dull, lifeless pew warmers.

RENEWING THE MIND BY WALKING ON HOT SAND!

 I am summarizing  some scriptures here, so please  bare with me as I  paraphrase a bit. 

Paul wrote to the Romans, “be not conformed to THIS world but be transformed by the renewing of the mind so that you can prove the perfect will of God for your life.” He also warned the Corinthians about casting down imaginations and thoughts  that could exalt themselves ABOVE the knowlege of God. Paul implied that  all thoughts could be “captured” and brought into obedience to the will of God. We know the general will of God from His word.  However, it is the Holy Ghost Who provides the direction of our individual lives   once our minds have been renewed.

Godly talk will bring forth the fruits of victory in casting down evil thoughts.

  • A part of renewing the soul is to learn how to deal with what is uncomfortable.  Walking on the sands of  a beautiful  beach on a hot sunny day has its comforts and delights.  However,if  the sand is very “hot,”  it is difficult to walk on it.  Struggles and failures supply the necessary preparation to learn how to “walk on hot sand.”.

The tormented one is pressured to search for answers and solutions—something that he would not have even considered if he had not desperately sought release from the torment.
  • Anyone who makes desicions either by the influence of an unrenewed mind or emotions is usually weak in his or her will.  The will is the organ that examines, distinguishes, judges and makes decisions based upon the information received from the mind and the emotions.
  • Choices can often be longlasting and unchangeable. We can make the choice but we cannot choose the outcome or the repercussion. In other words, we can choose to sin but we cannot choose the wages of that sin.

THE HOLY GHOST IS GRIEVED!

The Holy Ghost has been reduced to what charismatics, pentecostals and word of faithers call “the anointing.”  To most of this crowd, the Holy Ghost is “an it” that causes them to have goosebumps as they fall out slain in the spirit, speak in a language that no one can understand, and “get drunk in the spirit.” However, He is so much more than that.

DO NOT PROVOKE THE HOLY GHOST!

As a Person and not “a feeling,” the Holy Ghost speaks, teaches, witnesses, guides, comforts, convicts, commands, helps, converts, imparts faith to believe, brings the fear of the Lord and imparts godly sorrow to help a sinner repent. He can be obeyed, lied to, resisted, grieved, quenched, quenched, insulted and blasphemed.  The work of the Holy Spirit on earth is similar to that of the Lord’s earthly ministry. As Jesus lived to lift up and glorify the Father, the Holy Spirit’s workk centers on lifiting up the Son of God, Jesus Christ of Nazareth.  The Father also glorifies the Son.  The Holy Ghost is the Sspirit of Christ and the Spirit of the Father.  All three Persons are One.  As our Teacher of spiritual truths, the Holy Spirit will enligten your mind with insignts into the mind of Christ as He unlocks the spiritual doorways to the secret things of God.

Just as the Holy Ghost drove Jesus into the wilderness to do battle with the devil, He does the same with the elect of God.  The Holy Ghost not only wants you to know the godhead.  He wants you to know your enemy and so He will arrange your wilderness experience, tailor made to what you need to find out.  He knows that it is crucial that you be not ignorant to demonic deception, for the demons have access to our very souls.

Therefore, it is imperative that we learn how to tell the difference between what is spiritual, what is demonic and what is soulish or carnal.  The Holy Ghost is the Helper and as such, He provides us with self knowledge as long as we don’t grieve Him. Self knowledge equips us to be able to discern thoughts and feelings that are alien to our character and personality. Demons love to snare their prey with half truths rather than with complete lies because a half truth can set a more believable trap. You say to yourself, if this is true, then THAT must be true, and then you are trapped.  This is the scheme that is the foundation of all false religions.  There is at least ONE truth about God in all of them, perhaps more.

Nevertheless, 99% of truth is no truth at all.   It is a lie.  The Holy Ghost is 100 percent truth and there are no lies in Him. 99% of truth is a setup from the devil. Since our human struggle with the evil side of the spirit world is a daily event, and since Jesus revealed that the Holy Ghost is 100 percent truth, we need to resist grieving Him.  For Jesus said that the Holy Ghost will reveal truth as to what is to come.  In the times in which we live, we are helpless without the Holy Ghost.

How do we grieve the Holy Ghost?  Well, when we actually believe that WE lead people to Jesus Christ, we grieve the Holy Ghost.  All we do is preach and testify, as led by the Holy Ghost to do so.  The Holy Ghost does the rest.  He knows who will be saved from who will be damned.  He is the one who dispatches angels to set up our wilderness experiences that He will use to draw us to the cross.   He is the one who provides faith to believe on the Son of God and His bodily resurrection.  You might call the Holy Ghost “THE MINISTER OF SALVATION.” So He is certainly grieved when we take the credit for our own salvation when we boast “I ACCEPTED Jesus.”  He is more than grieved with this. He is angry.  Perhaps that is why religious demons have been allowed to enter those who have said “Jesus, come into my heart.”

  • When He is grieved, He is also quenched. A fire is quenched when dirt is thrown on it.  The organized church has thrown lots of dirt on the Holy Ghost and perhaps that is why He left Her.
  •  The Holy Ghost  is also grieved when He is reduced to a flesh experience.  He is a Spirit.  We must worship God in spirit and in truth and not by a sensation on our flesh.  The Holy Ghost imparts the truth by which we worship God Almighty.
  • The Holy Ghost is grieved when professing Christians bypass the Son of God and seek the Father to be saved.  He is quite grieved with that.
  • The Holy Ghost is grieved by those who do not try the spirits to see if they be of Him.  He will let you be deceived until you do.

 Resurrection life—the same power the Holy Ghost used to raise the Lord from the dead—will be evident when you experience revelation, power, and discernment under the guidance and instruction of the Holy Ghost.  Revelation is to receive God’s own personal  knowledge and wisdom about YOUR life.  Power is His supernatural ability applied to YOUR human frialty.  We cannot do without  the resurrection life of the Holy Ghost in times like these.
