DELIVERANCE FROM SUICIDAL THOUGHTS ASSURED 2

   DELIVERANCE FROM SPIRIT OF  SUICIDE

Many people who struggle with suicidal thoughts feel like they are alone. You would be surprised by how much the Bible talks about suicide. Even though these stories from the Bible are of people overwhelmed by fear, guilt, heartache, illness, pride, disillusionment and hopelessness. There is such a thing as deliverance from the spirit of suicide.

Recognize warning signs. The American Association of Suicidology says that people who are at risk of committing suicide often display warning signs such as: communicating a desire to kill themselves, looking for ways to kill themselves (like seeking access to guns or medications), expressing a lack of purpose or hope in life, demonstrating dramatic mood changes, behaving in significantly anxious or angry ways, sleeping too much or not sleeping enough, taking reckless risks, abusing alcohol or drugs, and withdrawing from relationships with family and friends.

Listen well and offer unconditional love, like God does. Pay attention to the troubling thoughts and feelings that people share with you Ask God to help you love suicidal people unconditionally – like He does – and that will give them hope they desperately need while struggling with embarrassment and shame.

Give people a fresh perspective on themselves and their problems. Suicidal people often become so preoccupied with their own failures and the problems in their lives that they blow them out of proportion. They mistakenly thinking that there’s no hope for them; you must point out other aspects of her life that are positive to help her gain a better perspective. Encourage suicidal people to give themselves time to see how their problems can resolve in unexpected ways.

Point to Prayer. People who kill themselves are trying to break free from their pain. It actually causes more pain by spreading grief around to deceased people’s loved ones. Prayer is needed to lay their troubles for Jesus to handle, trusting that He will help them with any situation – no matter how difficult.

Deliverance Suicide Prayer

God will never waste the pain we struggle through in this life, but He will turn it around for good somehow and use it to strengthen us and to help others.

If you or a loved one is struggling with suicidal thoughts, please get help. Do not face this on your own. There is hope and healing, and there are many who will journey through this trial with you. Call the National Suicide Prevention Hotline at 1-800-273-TALK (8255) at any time day or night 24/7, to talk to someone who understands. Or go online at www.suicidepreventionlifeline.org for more information and help.

The Catholic Catechism says that everyone is responsible for his life before God who has given it to him. We are stewards, not owners, of the life God has entrusted to us. It is not ours to dispose of.

WHAT IS DELIVERANCE?

Becoming Christian

 

Deliverance is defined as “a rescue from bondage or danger.” Deliverance is often sought from evil spirits or the spirit of lust, jealousy, etc. We are told to “Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith.”                                                                                                                                                  1 Peter 5:8,9

All aspects of deliverance are available only through the person and work of Jesus Christ:” When the seventy-two disciples returned, they joyfully reported to him, ‘Lord, even the demons obey us when we use your name!’”                                                                              Luke 10:17

 DO YOU NEED DELIVERANCE?

To determine if you are in need of deliverance, ask yourself the following questions:

  1. Are you continually argumentative or contrary–usually on the verge of anger?
  2.  Are you violating, neglecting or causing pain in a relationship?
  3.  Are you practicing sin and can’t seem to stop?
  4. Do you see a pattern of issues in your family, whether disease, poverty, anger, divorce, sexual perversion or other issues?
  5. You are sick all the time and the doctors find nothing wrong. You could be dealing with a spirit of infirmity?
  6. Are you having “spiritual” encounters, including recurring dreams/nightmares that you leave you fearful?
  7. Do you sometimes sense that the problem isn’t you, but rather something in you?
  8. Are you attracted to the occult. , e.g. Ouija Boards, Seance, Fortune Telling, Horoscopes, Hypnosis etc, or Witchcraft?
  9. Have you experienced traumatic events that have impacted your life negatively?
  10.  Do you keep hitting the same wall?

THE SOCIOPATH: HEALING ASSURED 2

 Antisocial personality disorder: (ASPD)

WHO ARE WE TALKING ABOUT?

It is the guy who makes you feel like you are the only person he ever needed or the woman who flaunts her looks to attract men into her web, that undying desire you fall victim too. The victim is left, a shadow of a person, unable to hear God or trust themselves.

THE PROBLEM

The problem is this personality disorder is rarely seen as spiritual. Once this condition is entered into the medical books and is given a name; it becomes the property of the secular world of medicine. Doctors or psychiatrists have no idea of how to treat such a malady other than to prescribe  medicine to slow everything down.

The case of the post traumatic stress disorder shares  the same problem. Twelve hundred troubled Canadian troops returned home from Afghanistan  and most servicing psychiatrist admit to poor success from all the trauma of killing. The Canadian government has set aside $500 million to solve the problem, which appears to be unsolvable. Enter the Spiritual Solution!

 

sociopath prayer

The sociopath is a guiltless, empty soul. They are always on the prowl for potential victims.  They are cold, conniving and above all, superficial.  

 

SOCIOPATH PRAYER

Whatever the sociopath’s “god” is, that is what he or she will strive to extract by using YOU. If their “god” is money, they will focus their time and effort on those who have it. Continue reading THE SOCIOPATH: HEALING ASSURED 2

VOODOOISM SPIRITUALITY 2

VOODOOISM

voodooism spiritual beings loa

Vodou or VOODOOISM SPIRITUALITY 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 Spirituality 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.

HEALING CANCER ASSURED 2

 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 colon-rectal 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 POWER

By 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.  

FAITH HEALING

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.

CATHOLIC LAY MISSIONARY 2

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.

EVIL SPIRIT DELIVERANCE 2

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 2

CONTROLLING  SPIRITS & DELIVERANCE

CONTROLLING SPIRITS DELIVERANCE

Breaking Free From The Bondage of a Controlling Spirit

“…Oppressors seek after my soul: they have not set God before them.” Psalm 54:3  A person who has a controlling spirit, will try to control everyone around them, control their lives, decisions; and will in general do everything to have influence and power. They want to control their lives, and the lives of those around them, to get things their way. Deliverance may be required.

Now, we need to realize that there is a difference between one with a take charge ability and one with a controlling spirit. They are not the same thing. Many godly people are qualified people who know how to motivate others to work, and how to get things done. Those lead and control situations and needs in a godly manner.

Conversely, an oppressive controlling spirit wants power, and they will get it any way the can in order to advance their cause. They enjoy controlling others.  They have a Jekyll and Hyde nature: vindictive in private, but innocent and charming in front of witnesses. This Hyde side is frequently described as “evil”.  These angry people are clearly selfish. They also appear compassionate and well-meaning.

deliverance evil spirits

Like most emotional problems, there is a wide range of controlling “Hyde” personalities, but generally the Hyde side exhibits the following characteristics:

  • a control freak and has a compulsive need to control everyone and everything you say, do, think and believe; and aggressively maintains the right to talk about anything they choose.
  • unable to trust others – this partly explains the compulsion for excessive monitoring.
  • quick to blame others.
  • often misses social cues.
  • appears to invite suggestions, yet these sociopaths inwardly dismiss each idea without considering its merits.
  • financially irresponsible.
  • insecure and sees others as a threat; the threat seems to comprise a fear of exposure of inadequacy.
  • has no listening skills, ignores and overrules you.
  • has an inability to form stable relationships.
  • does not learn from experience.
  • holds deep prejudice (e.g. against other cultures and religious beliefs, foreigners, etc) but goes to great lengths to keep this aspect of their personality secret.
  • often has an overwhelming, unhealthy and narcissistic attention-seeking need to portray themselves as a wonderful, kind, caring and compassionate person.

DEPRESSING FEELINGS

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.

WHAT IS DELIVERANCE?

Deliverance Is

Deliverance is defined as “a rescue from bondage or danger.” Deliverance is often sought from evil spirits or the spirit of lust, jealousy, etc. We are told to “Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith.”                                                                                                                                                  1 Peter 5:8,9

All aspects of deliverance are available only through the person and work of Jesus Christ:” When the seventy-two disciples returned, they joyfully reported to him, ‘Lord, even the demons obey us when we use your name!’”                                                                              Luke 10:17

 DO YOU NEED DELIVERANCE?

To determine if you are in need of deliverance, ask yourself the following questions:

  1. Are you continually argumentative or contrary–usually on the verge of anger?
  2.  Are you violating, neglecting or causing pain in a relationship?
  3.  Are you practicing sin and can’t seem to stop?
  4. Do you see a pattern of issues in your family, whether disease, poverty, anger, divorce, sexual perversion or other issues?
  5. You are sick all the time and the doctors find nothing wrong. You could be dealing with a spirit of infirmity?
  6. Are you having “spiritual” encounters, including recurring dreams/nightmares that you leave you fearful?
  7. Do you sometimes sense that the problem isn’t you, but rather something in you?
  8. Are you attracted to the occult. , e.g. Ouija Boards, Seance, Fortune Telling, Horoscopes, Hypnosis etc, or Witchcraft?
  9. Have you experienced traumatic events that have impacted your life negatively?
  10.  Do you keep hitting the same wall?

 DELIVERANCE AND EXORCISM 

Exorcism is exercised in case of possession, while deliverance deals with the influences that are not full possession. There are very few cases of possession as compared to ever pervading influence of different kinds of evil spirits affecting many people.

THE DELIVERANCE

INSOMNIA DELIVERANCE ASSURED 2

INSOMNIA DELIVERANCE CONNECTION

Trouble going to sleep or staying asleep: those suffering from insomnia average less than five hours of sleep a night. There may be a need for deliverance.

Insomnia Deliverance

“He blesses the sleep of the just.” 1 Samuel 2: 8  One in every seven Canadians aged 15 or older — about 3.3 million of us- have trouble going to sleep or staying asleep, according to a study released by Statistics Canada. The study, based on data from the 2002 Canadian Community Health Survey (CCHS), found that just under one-fifth of these suffering from insomnia average less than five hours of sleep a night. Individuals who were extremely obese had higher odds of reporting insomnia than those of normal weight. The prevalence of insomnia among seniors was largely attributable to poorer health, not age. There may be a need for deliverance.

Life stress also kept Canadians up at night, the study says. Nearly one-quarter (23 per cent) of people who described most of their days as being either “quite a bit” or “extremely” stressful reported insomnia.

In the mist of all David’s troubles he still honored and praised God as his protector, his shield, and strength: “But You, O LORD, are a shield about me, My glory, and the One who lifts my head.”                                                                                                                                                       Psalm3:3

Cover  Yourself

We don’t need to fear man or the schemes of the devil, but we need to depend on God and what He can do and say. He produces in us peace, kindness and lets us rest and guides us in all we do. We can fall asleep confidently trusting God for protection at night. Lay down our worries and pray before sleeping for a good night rest in him. How many of us do that? You won’t learn this until you start believing in God for protection in all areas of your life. Continue reading INSOMNIA DELIVERANCE ASSURED 2
