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 Missionaries

This 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.

WHAT IS DELIVERANCE MINISTRY?

 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.”                                                         Matthew 7:16  

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.

EVIL SPIRIT DELIVERANCE

LIGHT SHINING DELIVERANCE Deliverance of EVIL SPIRITS

Evil spirits of “sorcery or divination” were evident in the Old Testament: evil spirits are real in the New Testament but God has anointed us with new powers of deliverance in the Name of Jesus Christ. This is a Précis: YOUR LIGHT SHINES IN MY DARKNESS      By Rev. Joseph Kane, OM


Deliverance EVIL SPIRITS

THE WORKS OF GOD AND THE WORKS OF SATAN

Satan dangles a brief pleasure before the victim in order to visit permanent grief on him or her. God asks of us a moment of suffering with the firm promise of an eternal reward.

Satan tempts us to sin saying it will do no harm, then tortures the person when he yields, with the lie that the harm is irreparable and the sin unforgiveable. God warns us beforehand that sin harms us, but offers us the bright hope of forgiveness and renewal.

OCCULT PRACTICES

deliverance evil spirits

By searching for forbidden knowledge, one unwittingly opens the door to one’s mind to an evil spirit. But how can God permit this? He does not permit this. The Bible is very clear on this point:

When you enter the land the Lord your God is giving you, do not learn to imitate the detestable ways of the nations there. 10 Let no one be found among you who sacrifices their son or daughter in the fire, who practices divination or sorcery, interprets omens, engages in witchcraft, 11 or casts spells, or who is a medium or spiritist or who consults the dead. 12 Anyone who does these things is detestable to the Lord; because of these same detestable practices the Lord your God will drive out those nations before you. 13 You must be blameless before the Lord your God.                 Deuteronomy 18:9-15

Remember what the devil said to Eve: “You will not certainly die,” the serpent said to the woman. “For God knows that when you eat from it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.”                                                                      Genesis 3:4-5                      

The occultists always attract their victims with false promises: the lie. You will have power. We will inform you of your beloved deceased. The spirits will obey you.

Yet, the one who pretends to control the spirits sooner or later is controlled by them. How? They are told that obeying increases the channel of influence. Heavier things are asked and the slavery grows.

Have you observed anyone who is dabbling in any form of occult? Have you noticed that they actually lack joy — even nervous and fearful. You can actually recognize the signs of guilt, anger and resentment.

One person who had been a primitive pagan before being a Christian was asked what it was like: “It was living in darkness. The power of the witch doctor created an environment of fear, suspicion and murder.”

This form of slavery can be broken with a prayer of deliverance, where the person rejects the pact made and turns the area over to Jesus. In the Name of Jesus, the bonds are broken and revoked. The command to the spirits is to leave in the Name of Jesus and to go to the feet of Jesus without bothering anyone. The one who is delivered will feel a noticeable immediate feeling of peace.

THE NEW AGE

Satan deceives us into thinking we can possess powers on our own and control spirits, people and events. Ironically, those who want to control end up being controlled. Continue reading EVIL SPIRIT DELIVERANCE
