VOODOOISM

VOODOOISMvoodooism spiritual beings loavoodooism spiritual beings

Vodou is primarily practiced in Haiti, New Orleans, and other locations within the Caribbean. There is great variation within Voodoo beliefs and practices. Many Vodou practitioners also consider themselves Catholics. Voodooism involves spiritual beings.

As well as being the priest or priestess, the houngan acts as confessor, confidential and financial advisor, prophet and healer for the people in the community. But the houngan is more a folk healer with a considerable knowledge of herbal remedies who treats minor illnesses. While selling love potions and protective charms, including small bags to be worn for protection or for good luck, may be a lucrative side business for a priest or priestess, the primary occupation is still as a spiritual leader of his community. Voodooists especially places value on the strength of community for support.

Loa or Spiritual Beings

The spirits of death, The Guédé are really an enormous group of the loa who are the spirits of formerly living people. He is the one who controls the passage between life and death. In ritual, he is often offered black goats or chickens. The most frequently performed ritual in Voodoo is one that invokes a particular loa (supernatural beings) to offer food to him and seek his presence on earth.

The most important components of a human body, however, are the two parts of the soul, the ti-bon-ange (‘little good angel’) and the gros-bon-ange (‘great good angel’). The gros-bon-age keeps the body alive, and after death, it returns to the reservoir of energy in the cosmos. Without the gros-bon-ange a person loses his/ her life-force. The ti-bon-ange makes up the half of a person’s soul and it is the source of a person’s personality. Furthermore, it is responsible for determining an individual’s characteristics, personality and will.

In Voodoo belief, death is not seen as the end of life, but as a change. The soul – the gros-bon-ange and the ti-bon-ange – endures after death in a different form. The gros-bon-ange returns to the high solar regions where it joins the other loa (supernatural being) and is itself transformed into a loa. Approximately a year after the death, the houngan (priest) performs a ritual, to ensure that the ti-bon-ange is put to rest. This ritual is very important because otherwise the ti-bon-ange may wonder the earth and bring illness and disaster on others.

A Distinctive Human Soul

 A human person is a UNIQUE INDIVIDUAL BEING with a spiritual soul and a material body. Human beings alone are created in the image and likeness of God; and therefore, possess rational and spiritual souls: a human person is a body/soul composite.

Human Soul Sikhism

Why is this Extremely Dangerous?

Voodoo believers must invoke spells to pacify angry spirits.  The dark side of voodoo is used by participants to summon evil spirits and cast hexing spells upon adversaries. “Voodoo” has become part of modern folklore as something evil that can hurt us. There are terrifying stories about people who were affected by curses that had been placed upon them

In Voodooism, death is a transition to the invisible world, so our predecessors are still with us in spirit. They watch over and inspire us. Divinity is found in the act of ritual itself, in chanting and drumming and dancing to call the immortal spirits down from the cosmic plane where they live that infuses the practitioners with divine power.

UNGODLY AND SUPERSTITIOUS BELIEFS

Voodoo doesn’t pray to a Personal GOD. Why?

The “great good God,” although loving, is distant, and somewhat above individual human concerns.

The Mouse’s Search for the Cat

The unproved assumption of this very common mountain analogy is that the roads go up, not down; that man makes the roads, not God; that religion is man’s search for God, not God’s search for man.  C. S. Lewis says this sounds like “the mouse’s search for the cat”.Taoism

Christianity is not a system of man’s search for God but a story of God’s search for man.  True religion is not like a cloud of incense wafting up from special spirits into the nostrils of a waiting God, but like a Father’s hand thrust downward to rescue the fallen. Taoism

Taoism PantheismThe Word of God: came to us from the Bible

In the beginning God made from nothing the heavens and the earth.”                                                                                                               Genesis 1:1

“He made from one blood all nations who live on the earth. He set the times and places where they should live. They were to look for God. Then they might feel after Him and find Him because He is not far from each one of us. It is in Him that we live and move and keep on living.”                                                                                       Acts 17:26-28

 “The heavens are telling of the greatness of God and the great open spaces above show the work of His hands.”                   Psalm 19:1

”Lord, You have been the place of comfort for all people of all time. Before the mountains were born, before You gave birth to the earth and the world, forever and ever, You are God.”      Psalm 90:1, 2
Life after Death

Is the BIBLE true?

Are all religions are the same, deep down?

By Catholic standards, the religions of the world can be ranked by how much truth they teach.

  • Catholicism is first, with Orthodoxy equal except for the one issue of papal authority.
  • Then comes Protestantism and any “separated brethren” who keep the Christian essentials as found in sola scriptura (Latin: by Scripture alone) is a theological doctrine which holds that the Christian Scriptures are the sole infallible rule of faith and practice.
  • Third comes traditional Judaism, which worships the same God but not via Christ.
  • Fourth is Islam: the greatest of the theistic heresies.
  • Fifth, Hinduism: a mystical pantheism;
  • Sixth, Buddhism: pantheism without a theos (God);
  • Seventh, Christian Cults: Mormonism or Later Day Saints, Jehovah’s Witnesses; Voodooism
  • Eighth, modern Judaism, Unitarianism, Unification Church, whose members are often called “Moonies”, Confucianism, Falun Gong, Taoism, New Age, Modernism, Christian Science, Scientology and secular humanism, none of which have either mysticism or supernatural religion but only ethics;
  • Ninth, idolatry connotes the worship of something or someone other than God as if it were God.; and
  • Tenth, Satanism and Wicca contacting and convening with Satan as a supernatural being or force worthy of connection. They claim there is power here but it comes from the wrong source: BE WARNED!

  • Christians don’t shout, “I am clean living!” They whisper “I was lost, but now I’m found and forgiven.” 
  • Christians don’t speak of this with pride. They confess that they stumble and need Christ to be their guide.

Christianity on a Table Napkin:Deliverance EVIL SPIRITS

If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.                                                                                                                                     Romans 10:9

The real Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God. He was send by God to come to the earth in the body of a human being. That was so that He could suffer in the flesh, take all our sins upon Himself and die in our place. He rose from the dead and lives to pray for us daily.
He is the Saviour – The angel announced to Mary; …and you shall call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. Matthew 1:21    It means He has the power to free us, save us and deliver us from sin. He is merciful and has the power to forgive. He brings good news to the poor, heals the heartbroken, announce freedom to all captives, pardons all prisoners. He comforts mourners. He has healing in His wings.
If you are not yet received Jesus as your Saviour… SAY: Lord Jesus, You are the Christ, the Son of the Living God. Please hear me today and help me! I want to receive you as my Lord and Saviour. Be Lord of my life!  Lord Jesus, I believe that You died for me and that God raised You from the dead. Forgive me all my sins and take all my sins away. Come into my heart and be my Savior and Lord, and fill me with Your Holy Spirit. Amen

God the Father will wipe every tear from our eyes, and there shall be no more death or mourning, crying out or pain. We will be like Him, for we will see Him as He is The Holy Spirit will have made all things new. Eternal joy will have begun.  “For the Mighty One has done great things for me— holy is His name.”           Luke 1: 49

Are we not like Barabbas justly condemned for murder, but saved by the innocent Jesus on the cross? Are we not like the adulterous woman, deserving of death by stoning, to whom Jesus says, “I do not condemn you”?  And Jesus saved them both. In fact, Jesus came to earth specifically to look for and save those who were lost.

“Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the LORD.

“Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool Isaiah 1:18

You may need some counseling with a pastor, priest or competent Christian worker, who will introduce you to this Short Course on Who is Jesus? Start by reading the Gospel according to Luke and then John: It is all about love and you will love it. Read several verses before going to bed and read the same verse upon arising. Soaking yourself in the love of God defends you from attacks of the enemy.

TO HEAL CANCER

HEALING CANCER                                                         Do you believe God can HEAL cancer?CANCER HEALED

Almost one in every two Canadians is expected to be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime and one in four Canadians will die from the disease, a new report by the Canadian Cancer Society predicts.. Currently, every year we’re seeing an increase in the number of cancer cases  About 90 per cent of all the cancers that we expect to be diagnosed in 2017 will be among Canadians 50 years of age and older.”

Still, four cancers — prostate, breast, lung and colorectal — continue to top the list of the most common malignancies, which together are expected to account for more than half the cancer diagnoses in 2017. 

Survival rates for some cancers have improved dramatically over time: overall, 60 per cent of Canadians diagnosed and treated for cancer will survive five years or longer. These statistics probably hold true for United States.

GOD’S POWERBy His Stripes we are healed

To have faith is, to use the current jargon, to live outside of the box, risking, venturing, believing the impossible. Sometimes, the power of faith is manifested in spectacular and immediately obvious ways.

There is a long tradition, stretching back to Jesus Himself and including many of the saints, of faith healing.
When someone consciously and confidently opens himself to God, acting as a kind of conduit, the divine energy can flow.

Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ appeared to this simple nun, Sister Faustina, bringing a wonderful message of Mercy:

“In whatever state the soul may be, it ought to pray … for every single grace comes to the soul through prayer.”                                                                                                       Diary 146   From the Diary of St. Faustina

“I see that God never tries us beyond what we are able to suffer. Oh, I fear nothing; if God sends such great suffering to a soul. He upholds it with an even greater grace, although we are not aware of it. One act of trust at such moments gives greater glory to God than whole hours passed in prayer filled with consolations.”                                                                                                                                          Diary 1182

“Ask and it will be given you; seek, and you will find; knock and it will be opened to you.”                                                                                     Matthew 7:7

The Lord’s statement couldn’t be any clearer – if we ask we will receive. Note that there is no disclaimer that cancer or “impossible” situations are not included. While there is no guarantee that we’ll always receive a physical healing, we can rest assured that our prayers will be answered in the best possible way “Which of you, if your son asks for bread, will give him a stone? … Matthew 7:9-11). We will receive EXACTLY what we need!

Some have observed that their illness was a “wake-up call”. Some have said that their lives only really began when they were diagnosed. The experience of illness can be a call for a genuinely religious life: the essence of which is a return to God It is the purpose of our lives. In the end our healing becomes a return to love.

No matter how hopeless a situation looks, ALWAYS pray about it! If you don’t ask, you may not receive! God’s power is greater than any problem we could encounter. If you’re having difficulty believing that the Lord can work miracles in your life, say “I believe; help my unbelief!”                                                                                                       Mark 9:24

Good health can be defined as inner peace. A spiritual, holistic notion of healing includes treatment not only of the body but of the mind, and spirit. Cancer is a disease of the mind, body, and spirit.  A proactive and positive spirit will help the cancer warrior be a survivor. Anger, un-forgiveness and bitterness put the body into a stressful and acidic environment.

  PRAYER OF HEALING      

The following prayer can be used by someone in your church who has the gift of healing:

  • May God renew and restore all cells, all blood, all sinew & bones and all organs as new before any problem existed. 
  • In the name of Jesus of Nazareth, I rebuke and bind the evil spirit of ….(e.g. cancer) and I command it to leave you now, without manifestation or harm to you or me, to never return, and I send it to Jesus Christ, who will dispose of it according to His Will   
  •  In the name of Jesus of Nazareth,  and by Your stripes, Lord Jesus, ___________  you are healed! Say: Thank you, Jesus

 The person being healed  and others involved with the healing must also pray silently:                                                                                                                           “Come, Holy Spirit, Come” or “Come, Lord Jesus, Come” .

PRAYER OF DELIVERANCE

What Satan intends for your harm, God can turn around for your good!  It starts with a Prayer of Deliverance:  a prayer in Jesus’ name against any form of evil that may be attacking them spiritually:

(In the Name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, I command all evil spirits influencing you now, to be quiet and not to give you any evil thoughts.)deliverance evil spirits

This prayer is used by someone who either has a gift of deliverance or someone who is very spiritual and without sin who may not even know that they have the power of deliverance. (The devil only laughs at the person who is sinful and attempts deliverance). Be advised that no one should be touching the person being delivered.

deliverance PRAYER PHYSICAL HEALING

The void that that takes place brings a complete sense of peace, and you will now be free in Jesus.  If you don’t believe this, try it and see for yourself. You will definitely know in a few  minutes that a physical change has taken place. PRAYER OF DELIVERANCE

There is a following prayer of thanks. After deliverance, you must pray a simple prayer every day until you are free: “I thank and praise You, Lord, for Your healing!” which is a reflection of your faith, which is a very important ingredient. You must have faith that God is with you every step of the way. Faith means that you’re thanking God before it happens.

Be patient and eventually you will see progress. God’s strength allows you to move on in your desired direction.

PHYSICAL HEALING

Healing is often overlooked today. Our culture has little place for such experiences. People do not understand the concept of a “divine breakthrough” into our little world.

Jesus died on the cross and everything changed: our sins were forgiven and He bore our diseases, so that in His death, we can have a life! He did it out of love, and that “God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son”.  John 3:16 This happened 2000 years ago, but it’s a “done deal”.  It was because of Jesus’ wounds that we are healed. “By His stripes, we are healed…”                         Isaiah 53:4-5 

When you go to a doctor for healing, you don’t try to justify our asking for help, e.g. Help me because I can be a better parent, a better worker, a better spouse. Yet this is what many people do when they pray for healing from God: they even try to bargain with God: I will do this if only you heal me. These people have a fearful relationship with God.

The real truth is that God is Love and He wants to see you healed without your justification. Healing is an ordinary, not an extraordinary sign of God’s mercy and compassion. “But in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”                                                                                 Philippians 4:6

Jesus cured not just to prove He was God, but because He was abounding in love: God is more than willing to save and heal all who come  to Him with open and contrite hearts. Healing can be a test of faith, but also a natural response to God’s generous love.  The minister of healing, who is nothing more than a human channel, says the prayer of healing and then steps aside.

 God works through those practicing medicine: the doctor, the counselor and the psychiatrist are all ministers of healing: “Then give the doctor his place lest he leave; for you need him too. There are times that give him an advantage, and he too beseeches God that his diagnosis may be correct and his treatment bring about a cure.”                                                                                                       Sirach 38:12-14 

We all our born with a sinful nature.  This sometimes gives the devil a foot hold into our lives. We allow this to become a foothold to the enemy in our life. People need to be delivered from this hold of Satan.

There is a relationship between healing and the need for deliverance. Many are never healed because they have never received deliverance from the spirits that made them sick. The sins of the paralytic was the cause of the illness, so the first thing that Jesus did was to forgive his sins.                                            Matthew 9:2

Jesus accomplished two things: “Jesus healed many who had various diseases. He also drove out many demons …” Mark 1: 34.  Some people simply need healing from the diseases that have made them sick; others need deliverance from the spirits that have made them sick.

We are not saying that every disease is caused by a demon yet, it’s not that common to find illness that’s only totally “natural” or one that’s only totally “demonic”. There’s almost always an interaction between the two. There is a need for both natural healing and demonic healing. Those who were possessed by evil spirits can be healed.  Jesus, through one who has the gift of deliverance, can chase all these evil spirits away from them. “They cast out many devils, and anointed many sick people with oil and cured them.”                                                                                                                                      Mark 6:13

Several of the spirits sometimes surface and block the prayer of deliverance, e.g. mockery, dumbness, confusion, so the minister of deliverance prays: “In the name of Jesus, I command all evil spirits residing in you to be quiet and not give you any evil thoughts.”  In fact, this prayer should be said audibly even before approaching a person who needs deliverance. (Evil spirits cannot hear your thoughts.) This person need not hear this prayer.

Anything left empty by the departure of the demons should be filled by the presence of Jesus. There should be a prayer immediately after the deliverance to fill the person with God’s love and grace.

 Often there is a sense of freedom, of joy associated with the deliverance and healing: it’s like the lifting of a weight or pain.

Ideally, the person should then become part of a Christian community support for the same reason that alcoholics are asked to become members of Alcoholic Anonymous. One’s new Christian friends will help one put one’s life into balance.

A WEAKENED FAITH

Telling another person of a healing is apt to disturb the brooding inner spirit of man.  There is always a great deal of cynicism: ” I wonder how long this is going to last”.  These feelings of uncertainty weakens faith.  Why did Jesus say to the leper, “tell no man” after his healing?  It was to protect the one being healed. To testify too soon concerning a healing causes problems: it meets with cynicism from others, which weakens one’s faith and creates a feeling of uncertainty.

To our friends who are Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu, Atheist, Taoist, Mormon and Jehovah Witness:

To our knowledge, there is no one in your religious belief that can bind and deliver demonic spirits. There is a reason for this: demonic attacks are warded off in Jesus’ Name. It requires a bible oriented Christian to do the deliverance. You still can be delivered from your attacks, but it needs that all important Christian to command all evil spirits to go to Jesus Christ who will dispose of them according to His Will and to never return .
JESUS GOD

DELIVERANCE FROM HOMOSEXUALITY

IS TRUE DELIVERANCE FROM HOMOSEXUALITY POSSIBLE?

Too often, especially in the church, the subject of homosexuality and deliverance causes deep misunderstanding and painful rifts. To someone struggling with homosexuality, different churches can present different confusing message. Some insist that a repentant homosexual renounce all ties to the homosexual lifestyle and live out his or her days in celibacy. Others believe that since no one chooses to be homosexual, the only compassionate solution is complete acceptance. Neither viewpoint takes into the fundamental reality of every person’s need for love and acceptance.

There are those who are conscientious about their faith, and who really desire to live as God wants, and who are terrified of what the Bible says about their sexual desires which don’t go where they are supposed to. Such people would be left with an even greater burden because not only are they remaining part of a persecuted minority, but now they have failed as Christians too.Deliverance homosexuality

Francis MacNutt is a sincere and respected Christian healer takes the view that homosexuality has definite causes and can be healed. He claims Jesus Christ can transform the homosexual’s restoration: this healing will last and be fruitful and ultimately change the whole situation.

Many homosexuals’ claim that…

  1. They are made that way. A pastor wondered why his brother was gay and he wasn’t. In prayer, he learned that his brother was in the womb when the father became unreasonably angry at the mother, so the child became more feminine. Could this be generational sins that the Bible speaks about that need deliverance? I, the Lord thy God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation”.                                                             Deuteronomy 5:9
  2. Homosexuality is of no harm to the participants or to anyone else.
  3. If it feels right to those involved, it is nobody else’s business.

Yet a Task Force on Human Sexuality states “that a person becomes a homosexual ultimately by choosing to be involved in same-sex activity

Here is one testimony:  I was ABSOLUTELY convinced that I was gay. I thought that the Bible was wrong; I even found myself searching for books on the acceptance of Christianity and homosexuality. During this period of my life, I cared for no one but myself. I was so depressed. I was so anxious. And I was so away from God.

Looking back on his past, one homosexual admitted that he now sees that he has been brought out of what he calls the sexual confusion of homosexual behaviors”. He has left behind what he calls the “self-defeating environment of my own, very negative self-image” and moved into an unshakable understanding of his value and self worth as a beloved child of God. He said that homosexuality is a sexual addiction and dependency,” not a condition to be socially accepted and celebrated.

He began to see himself differently. He also saw other people differently. There were still human pangs of loneliness and depression on occasion.  He now knew that homosexual behavior was not the legitimate answer for the pain. 

In the end he turned to Christ in order to overcome all of his human weakness and brokenness, not just the homosexual brokenness.

If you believe homosexuality is a sin, then it may mean that you are given the strength to resist the temptations. In other cases you may never be faced with homosexual temptation ever again. Every person’s level of deliverance is different.

The “gay identity” thought process is like a person diagnosed with bipolar disorder; they will often see the world around them as the real problem — rather than themselves — and choose to stop taking their prescribed medication because of that false and distorted reasoning.

Many gay people have been gloriously rescued from the bondage of homosexual sin (and other sin) by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Do you need deliverance?deliverance, homosexuality

Important Questions to Ask Yourself:

Take this very simple test to see if you need deliverance. Please answer these questions honestly. No one will ever see your answers. This test is only for your personal self-inspection.

  1. Have you ever been intimately abused, raped, or molested? Yes
    Have you ever been otherwise abused, verbally, physically, emotionally? Yes
    3. Have you suffered or suspect SRA Satanic Ritual Abuse? Yes
    4. Are you oppressed or attacked by spirits? Yes
    5. Have you ever played with the Ouija board? Yes
    6. Have you ever dabbled in the occult or witchcraft? Yes
    7. Do you really struggle to pray or read the Holy Bible? Yes
    8. Do you suffer or have suffered severe Rejection or abandonment? Yes
    9. Have you suffered severe trauma or broken heartedness? Yes
    10. Do you feel trapped in your own life or get overwhelmed with fear or have nightmares? Yes
    11. Do you self-harm / cut or suffer anorexia/ bulimia/insomnia? Yes
    12. Do you suffer from multiple personality disorder, DID/ MPD/ OCD/ BPD? Yes
    13. Have you used drugs or excessive alcohol in the past or still do? Yes
    14. Have you ever attempted suicide or have ancestors murdered? Yes
    15. Do you hear voices? And/or telling/forcing you to commit illegal acts, blaspheme, or indulge in immoral acts? Yes
    16. You cannot seem to overcome issues no matter how much you’ve prayed? Yes
    17. Have you or your ancestors been involved in Freemasonry or been deep into Hip Hop/ Metal? Yes
    18. Do you consistently experience serious health or financial issues? Yes
    19. Do you sometimes exhibit uncontrollable outbursts of anger or violence? Yes
    20. Do you suffer spiritual molestation/ intimacy in dreams &/or hindrance of normal intimacy in marriage? Yes
    21. Are you aware of ancestral curses or ancestral occult/witchcraft involvement affecting you? Yes
    If you answered YES to ANY of these questions, then Deliverance  with inner healing is needed.

This journey could very well involve a lifetime, rather than a simple transition over a short time. “Deliverance shortens the process immeasurably.  This journey can be called a “restoration” rather than a change or a conversion.Deliverance homosexuality

Deliverance Prayer. Let people know that they can count on you to pray for them and pray in Jesus’ name against any form of evil that may be attacking them spiritually:

  • I break the curse of suicide, depression, self-pity, and grief and bind and deliver all demons that came in to enforce those curses to go to the pit, in Jesus name never to return.”
  • I bind and deliver all evil spirits of generational sins, defects and disorders to go to the pit, in Jesus name never to return.”

This prayer is used by someone who either has a gift of deliverance or someone who is very spiritual and without sin who may not know that they have the power of deliverance. (The devil only laughs at the person who is sinful and attempts deliverance). Be advised that no one should be touching the person being delivered.

This is followed by a prayer of thanks. After deliverance, you must pray a simple prayer every day until you are free: “I thank and praise You, Lord, for Your healing!” which is a reflection of your faith, which is a very important ingredient. You must have faith that God is with you every step of the way.  (Faith means that you’re thanking God before it happens.)

Be patient and eventually you will see progress. God’s strength allows you to move on in your desired direction.

In the end you will thank Jesus for lifting your spirits during the low points of your journey, and with sustaining you through the high points of it

CATHOLIC LAY MISSIONARY

CATHOLIC LAY MISSIONARY ORIENTED

Catholics have a culture of obligation and it shows in their apathy. A select core must become a Catholic Lay missionary.

Why are exciting Catholic parishes so rare?

  1. No one says hello
  2. No one sings the hymns
  3. Lack of reverence in the Eucharistic celebration
  4. People are just taking their Communion and seem to exit before Mass has ended.

The overall attitude is that they need us to meet their Sunday Mass obligation. Where else can they go? We are accustomed to a generally mediocre experience of parish life.Catholic Lay Missionaries

Pop into your local Evangelical church. Look at how they do music, hospitality, preaching, small groups, child care, etc. Protestant churches are made up of large pastoral teams of 6-10 people. Most Catholic parishes consist of one or two priests, a secretary, and maybe a youth minister.Catholic Lay MissionariesThis is not your typical Evangelical church: it is gathering of Christians that have been attracted to healing and deliverance often associated with Christian Missionaries. 

What should we do?

  • The first thing is to remember to keep the first thing the first thing: the Holy Eucharist.
  • The core is to proclaim Jesus and invite people into relationship with Him.
  • We need to become team players.
  • We need to adopt a culture of invitation
  • An invitation to a religious event actually can turn one’s whole life around? But we get scared to invite, don’t we? We need to get over that.
  • We need to deliberately let our faith float to the surface of your life to put it out there that you are a believing, practicing, Catholic Christian.

The evil spirit of defeatism

Do we truly believe that God wants to transform the world? Do we believe that God wants to use our parish to transform our neighborhood and city?

Nobody can go off to battle unless he is fully convinced of victory beforehand.

We must open up our minds to new possibilities. And let us beg God to use us in building up a better Church in the world.

Here are the points you want to commit to memory: 

  1. God created us in love and desires relationship with us
  2. Through sin, our relationship with God was ruptured, and we had no means to atone for the rupture ourselves
  3. God in his mercy sent his Son into the world to save it, to atone for our sins, reconcile us with the Father and open up for us eternal life
  4. He accomplished this by his passion and death on the Cross
  5. We have the freedom to accept or reject the atonement he won for us. Do you want to receive this gift?

“As the deer longs for streams of water,

So my soul longs for you, O God.

My being thirsts for God, the living God.

When can I go and see the face of God?”              Psalm 42:1-2

How do we make ourselves completely mission-oriented?

Remember the Great Commission: “And He (Jesus) said to them, “Go into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature.16 He who believes and is baptized will be saved …  In My name they will cast out demons; they will speak with new tongues; they will take up serpents; and if they drink anything deadly, it will by no means hurt them; they will lay hands on the sick, and they will recover.” Mark 16:15-18.

Those who are born again with the Holy Spirit and who follow the Great Commission are given the gifts of the Holy Spirit like healing. God showers those missionaries with gifts in order that they may do His work.Catholic lay missionaries

One of the biggest obstacles is the lack of vibrancy in Catholic parishes. Imagine those who decide to become Catholic Missionaries: to join those who are involved with missionary and healing. Imagine what they could contribute when they returned to their parish WITH THEIR NEW GIFTS.Catholic lay missionaries

They influence the church to become less like a club for insiders; rather they become a school for beginners or missionaries. It will be a church where people will see fruit.Catholic lay missionaries

   Mission of Healing and Deliverance

“To more fully awaken everyone to the gifts and fruits of the Holy Spirit and their importance in empowering the ministry of bringing Christ to others through the team for healing and deliverance.”

Relationship between Healing and the Need for Deliverance

“Then He appointed the twelve that they might be with Him, that He might send them out to preach and to have power to heal sicknesses and to cast out demons” Mark 3:14-15

Healing is the most effective way to proclaim the Good News of Christ.  More Christians enter into a deeper spiritual life through healing than any other way.

There is a relationship between healing and the need for deliverance. Many are never healed because they have never received deliverance from the spirits that made them sick.

Jesus accomplished two things: “Jesus healed many who had various diseases. He also drove out many demons …” Mark 1: 34  Some people simply need healing from the diseases that have made them sick; others need deliverance from the spirits that have made them sick.

We shouldn’t ignore the role demons may play regarding sickness and the demonic signs:

  1. It is demonic if the discerning of spirits is in operation. The most common way that discernment works is through a “knowing” that something is there.
  2. It is demonic if the sickness affects the spiritual life of the sick. Physically ill people get furious at preaching. In cases where the sick are not experiencing more spiritual growth but getting bitter, angry, and more sinful, then I believe that their sickness has a demonic root.
  3. It is demonic if there are strange occurrences taking place with the disease.

We are not saying that every disease is caused by a demon yet, it’s not that common to find illness that’s totally “natural” or one that’s totally “demonic”. There’s almost always an interaction between the two. There is a need for both natural healing and demonic healing.

“And these signs shall follow those who believe. In My Name they will cast out demons…”                                                                    Mark 16:17

“Behold, I give you authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.”                                                                                  Luke 10:19Healing Deliverance

Physical Healing

The words healing and peace are synonymous with each other. You cannot have one without the other. The measure of healing is measured by the degree of peace we are feeling.

Peace is defined as a state of tranquility, of calmness, and healing as a restoration to normalcy. With the ups and downs of relationships, it becomes increasingly difficult to walk the path of life stress-free. Fear, anger, and stress are all barriers to healing; indeed these states often create illness.

Native Americans believe that in order to be mentally healthy, one’s mind, heart and spirit must be in alignment. This means that mind, heart and spirit are meant to be in balance. If all three are equally weighed, one can walk the path of life with far less stress.

Healing by Faithhealing faith

The moment one realizes the healing promises pertain to them personally, then the faith is ready to act and the healing will come. One must stay in an attitude of believing. Through appropriation of faith, His healing promises, and patience one receives the healing.

With doubt and unbelief the powers of the healing of Christ are of non-effect. In other words, one cannot be healed with doubt, worry, concerns, and unbelief. Christ wants people to know that doubt leading to unbelief curtails the healing making the healing of non-effect.

Usually 80% of the healing takes place immediately. The complete healing will take place over a reasonable short time, but this requires homework: the one being healed must praise and thank God every day or whenever he or she thinks about it until the complete healing has taken place. The prayer below is invaluable because it demonstrates your faith: 

Lord Jesus, I thank You and praise You for my healing.

This small prayer is to be said in faith a minimum of every day or whenever you think about it until the healing is complete.

SUPERNATURAL EVANGELISM BY HEALING

HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED HOW TO BECOME A CHRISTIAN?

god proof

  • Christians don’t shout, “I am clean living!” They whisper “I was lost, but now I’m found and forgiven.” 
  • Christians don’t speak of this with pride. They confess that they stumble and need Christ to be their guide.
  • Christians don’t say,” I’m strong.” They say they are trying to be strong because they are really weak and need strength. 
  • Christians don’t brag of success, but they admit that they are failing and they need God to clean up the mess.
  • Christians don’t claim to be perfect. Their flaws are far too visible but God believes they are worth it.
  • Christians still feel the sting of pain and they have their share of headaches but they call upon His Name.
  • Christians are not holier than thou. They are also simple sinners who receive God’s unbelievable Grace.

Christianity on a Table Napkin:Deliverance EVIL SPIRITS

If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.                                                                                                                                              Romans 10:9

The real Jesus is the Christ, the Son of the Living God. He was send by God to come to the earth in the body of a human being. That was so that He could suffer in the flesh, take all our sins upon Himself and die in our place. He rose from the dead and lives to pray for us daily.
He is the Saviour – The angel announced to Mary; …and you shall call his name JESUS: for he shall save his people from their sins. Matthew 1:21    It means He has the power to free us, save us and deliver us from sin. He is merciful and has the power to forgive. He brings good news to the poor, heals the heartbroken, announce freedom to all captives, pardons all prisoners. He comforts mourners. He has healing in His wings.
If you are not yet received Jesus as your Saviour… SAY: Lord Jesus, You are the Christ, the Son of the Living God. Please hear me today and help me! I want to receive you as my Lord and Saviour. Be Lord of my life!  Lord Jesus, I believe that You died for me and that God raised You from the dead. Forgive me all my sins and take all my sins away. Come into my heart and be my Savior and Lord, and fill me with Your Holy Spirit. Amen

God the Father will wipe every tear from our eyes, and there shall be no more death or mourning, crying out or pain. We will be like Him, for we will see Him as He is The Holy Spirit will have made all things new. Eternal joy will have begun.  “For the Mighty One has done great things for me— holy is His name.”                                       Luke 1: 49

Are we not like Barabbas justly condemned for murder, but saved by the innocent Jesus on the cross? Are we not like the adulterous woman, deserving of death by stoning, to whom Jesus says, “I do not condemn you”?  And Jesus saved them both. In fact, Jesus came to earth specifically to look for and save those who were lost.

“Come now, let us settle the matter,” says the LORD.

“Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red as crimson, they shall be like wool.    Isaiah 1:18

You may need some counseling with a pastor, priest or competent Christian worker, who will introduce you to this Short Course on Who is Jesus? Start by reading the Gospel according to Luke and then John: It is all about love and you will love it. Read several verses before going to bed and read the same verse upon arising. Soaking yourself in the love of God defends you from attacks of the enemy.

DELIVERANCE MINISTRY

DELIVERANCE

DOES DELIVERANCE MINISTRY WORK?

How do you know that your prayer of deliverance actually works? The person that needed to be delivered from demonic obsessions will always feel a new sense of peace:  some receive a feeling of airiness as if something has left; some feel a tingling: “By their fruit you will recognize them.”                                                Matthew7:16  

Crime has reached an all time high and people are researching into unique crimes.   Even crime prevention experts are  bewildered. The world has lost its peace and tranquility.Deliverance

Growing up in an environment ,where bad choices are made by parents, can and do influence children. There comes a point where the cycle of making bad choices needs to be broken.

The accusing spirit is an anti-Christ spirit, because it approaches people with no love. It works through a voice; the voice of condemnation and rejection. It constantly tells you how much of a failure you are.

Whenever we feel the hurt and pain from rejection, it’s because we our identity depends upon what other people thinks of us. That is why our identity must be based upon the Word of God, and what God has to say about us.

What is impossible with any human system can still be possible with God. It takes only a split second for Him to put your life back to order just as He made water into wine or brought the dead man alive.

When we leave the Word of God behind and seek to satisfy our own fleshly appetites, it can give unclean spirits access into our lives. Most people do not even realize what they are getting themselves into, and then they wonder why they have lost control in that area of their lives afterwards!

Unforgiveness is the single most popular poison that the enemy uses against inmates, and it is one of the deadliest poisons a person can take spiritually. It causes everything from mental depression, to health problems such as cancer and arthritis. Unforgiveness prevents God from forgiving our sins. “But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.”                                                                                                                         Matthew 6:15

It is bad enough to be rebellious, but anybody who curses their father or mother shall come under a curse, and find themselves in obscure darkness: “Who so curseth his father or his mother, his lamp shall be put out in obscure darkness.”                               Proverbs 20:20

The most common misconception is from the word deliverance: people want to think “demon possession”it is NOT possession, but it is oppression, which takes place in the soul and in the flesh. It is almost like part of our body is not in our full control. We can expect to wrestle against temptations, accusations and deception, but NOT torment, vexation, and trouble from evil spirits.Deliverance

Some symptoms of trouble with evil spirits:

  • A compulsive desire to blaspheme and blame God.
  • Compulsive thoughts of suicide or murder.
  • Deep feelings of bitterness and hatred toward others without reason: Jews, other races, the church, strong Christian leaders.
  • Compulsive desires to tear other people down, even if it means lying to do so.
  • Terrifying feelings of guilt even after honest confession is made to the Lord.
  • Deep depression and despondency.
  • Sudden surges of violent rage, uncontrollable anger, or seething feelings of hostility.
  • Seizures of panic or other fear that is terrifying.
  • Dreams or nightmares that are of a horrific nature and often …recurring. Clairvoyant dreams that may even come true are most often demonic.
  • Abnormal or perverted sexual desires. .
  • A revulsion against the Bible, including a desire to tear it up or destroy it.
  • Sleep or eating disorders without physical cause.
  • Most compulsions and obsessions.
  • Rebellion and hatred for authority.
  • Fascination with the occult.
  • Involvement in criminal activity.

Explain Depressing Feelings

DEPRESSING FEELINGS
DEPRESSING FEELINGS

How do you explain depressing feelings? Have you ever felt that the world is full of deception – nothing and no one should be trusted. Such notions, arises from disillusionment, distrust of one’s fellow beings, unhappiness and eventually, despair. Life has suddenly and devastatingly become devoid of meaning; we arrive at a time of life-threatening crisis. Meaning and purpose for life cannot be found. Where and to whom can one turn? Who can one trust to find the right answers?
We seem to be ‘looking through a glass darkly’ — looking at what was going on around us as if we were a detached observer – being there and involved but also feeling that somehow we weren’t really present.
We cry more than any normal person should; we don’t care to eat, cook, or clean, we don’t care to see our friends. We can’t focus at work, or carry out our daily responsibilities at home. When we step back and think about it, we wonder, is there a point to being alive? 
It’s a frightening thought when we realize we’ve just admitted to ourselves there could be no reason to be here. There is a difference between being sad, and being sad for no reason. A sadness deep in your bones that does not want to go away after time and effort. It’s not something anyone wants to readily admit.

depression sad
We practice making lists on why our life is something to be envious of, but that doesn’t help. It makes one hate oneself more for being sad when one has it so good. Then you say to yourself that you are a failure…and it spirals from there. It’s awful. It’s exhausting. It’s black.

People brush you off by telling me you that you need, “exercise and a combination of certain vitamins,” or, “think of the starving children in Africa without clean water to drink.”

So you realize that you need help. You  struggle with showing any signs of weakness, but asking for help is not something you can easily do. You are not sure there is anything any one person could do or say; you suppose this is a dark valley ; you have to go at it alone. You can only hope you make it out the other side.

You are afraid that you will spend your  life chasing happiness. But at times, you wonder if you are just running.

DELIVERANCE FROM DEPRESSION

DELIVERANCE DEPRESSION

DELIVERANCE FROM DEPRESSION

Deliverance from Depression: is it really a mental illness or is it a kind of evil spirit? The Christian is suppose to experience peace and joy, but the depressed person cannot. The depressed  persons have problems believing that God loves them; they withdraw from community support and they are in a continued state of anxiety. They are completely overcome by evil. This is not of God’s will. One of the symptoms of depression is one’s experience that no one has been able to help; that even God does not care. Deliverance may be needed.

There are times that depression is a demon.  And Saul’s servants said to him, “Behold now, an evil spirit from God is afflicting you.”               1Samuel 16:14-23

demonic depression

The enemy’s number one area of attack is the mind. The demons will put negative or even perverse thoughts on your mind to make you believe that they are your thoughts. When people fall to complaining and fussing and feeling sorry for themselves, they lay themselves open to any danger of an invitation to evil spirits.

Fortunately, the Accreditation Council on Graduate Medical Education thought so too. In 1994—at long last—its Special Requirements for Psychiatry Residency Training mandated that: (1) young psychiatrists receive religious instruction, and (2) a patient’s spiritual beliefs always be noted and taken seriously.

Likewise, for the first time ever, the American Psychiatric Association’s Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM-IV)—psychiatry’s massive, professional bible—now includes a category that acknowledges the importance of religion in our lives.  It is my hope that  there be a new relationship encouraged between psychiatry and the fields of religion and spirituality.”

Most psychiatrists now believe that in severe depression, medication is needed to restore enough bodily and cognitive functioning for a sufferer to then attack the unhealthy thinking that has grown out of the illness. Most of the more than 20 types of psychotherapy show some success with depression, but those with the best track record are designed to be fairly short, lasting less than a year, and focus on correcting distorted thought patterns.” (from the article on depression: U.S. News) Many doctors treat their patients by natural methods, which leave the devils unperturbed.

When you are depressed, your access to God’s presence is blocked Psalm 100:1-5. It is a very destructive weapon of the enemy.

You need only concern yourself with getting your own house in order: “Seek first the kingdom of God and his righteousness – and all the rest of these things will be granted to you as well.” Matthew 6:33 ” I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.”                                                                                    Philippians 4:13
