“In my night dream, there appeared a man who was hulk like, broad shouldered and in cartoon character form. He was wearing a suit and tie and a smile as broad as his shoulders. Out of his chest was another head of a man of African descent, BOTH HEADS TALKED; they were double minded. The backdrop for this vision was a morning show, aired in the streets of a large city that looked like New York. In front of the announcer who was interviewing the gentleman with two heads, was a conveyor belt coming out of a stone oven; on the conveyor belt were silver trays with delectable foods. As the smoke rose off the dainty little treats, the announcer held the microphone in front of the large man and said, “I can smell the fresh thyme, rosemary, and garlic, it smells magnificent!”
Both heads spoke in agreement and then the announcer replied, “And you say it’s all made with HUMAN DUNG?”
“That’s right, the men agreed, and they never even know it. THE PEOPLE JUST EAT IT UP AND NEVER SUSPECT A THING!”
The announcer said, “Amazing. Well, you heard it here first folks, now back to you, Brenda.”
I awoke and prayed until the Lord revealed to me who these cartoon characters represented. They were shepherds (ministers) who were taking the word of God and making it LOOK GOOD, SMELL GOOD and TASTE GOOD, but it was all a bunch of garbage. They were FEEDING the people a load of CRAP, twisting and manipulating the Holy Word of God.
Adolph Hitler once said, “If you tell a BIG enough LIE and tell it frequently enough, it will be believed.” For over 2,000 years the Greek doctrinal influence of Plato, Socrates and Aristotle have trickled into our church houses. Many theologians with good intentions have told us lies taught to them. Yes, we’ve all heard doctrines that just don’t add up. However, we have heard it so frequently, we have accepted it as truth and never searched the Word with a MIND FREE of preconceived notions. Once you are taught a certain way of doing something, it’s hard to reverse it. I drove a five speed Mitsubishi for years after it died I bought an automatic but my foot still pushed down on the imaginary clutch. It’s the same with doctrine, once you have heard the scriptures strung along and placed in a certain way that is ALL you know. You’ve become so accustomed to the way it was presented to you, that to change its structure appears outrageous.
Having been raised in a charismatic church and educated under Assemblies of God doctrine, even as a young girl there were certain things taught that disturbed me. These ministers of my youth could summon angels at their command, rebuke every sickness, scream at demons that controlled territories and proclaim to stop wars. They seemed to have power over all, including whether you prospered or not. One man could pray for wealth to be transferred to you and favor; all you had to do was give money to his ministry, or ‘plant a seed’. Another could break every generational curse brought from Satan on your family. Many of these men boasted and bragged about how many airplanes they owned and how many millions God had blessed them with.
I can recall sitting in the pew and hearing ministers pray with authority over spirits, sickness and every demon that had come to torment the person standing before them. However, in spite of all their binding and loosing, my mother remained sick. She suffered for years and was prayed over by some of the biggest names on the scene, but she was plagued with Parkinson’s disease and went on to die of Cancer. This was a woman who did ministry, worked the prayer line, handed out tracts and told people about Jesus/Yeshua often.
As I grew older, more and more doctrines crept into the church from well-known evangelist and television ministers. One night in my early twenties I decided I wanted to know what the word of God said for me. I no longer wanted to go to church on Saturday or Sunday and just take what one man behind a pulpit said as truth. I wanted to study ‘precept upon precept and line upon line’, according to Isaiah 28:10 KJV. I began to crave His Word. I wanted to know everything it said concerning sickness, spirits and devils. I wanted to search the hidden things of God. I was no longer content to just listen to a sermon, I now wanted to know the concealed secrets of His Word, the meat. I also wanted to identify why my praying mother had become mentally tormented and diagnosed with Lewy Body Dementia? Was this a demon of darkness? Was this a curse on my family? Why didn’t any of the tactics used in church bring restoration, healing or peace? Why didn’t binding and loosing work? Why didn’t commanding the spirits to leave cause them to flee?
On this journey, I discovered that there are many doctrines being taught and accepted, along with many different denominations having their own set of rules and formulas for victory. It made me speculate who had the CORRECT THEOLOGY. Even, The Catholic Church who claims to be undivided is now disagreeing on divorce and birth control among other topics. I began to question how can Christ come back for a SPOTLESS BRIDE with so much confusion and so many different beliefs? Why were there no Christian denominations in the Bible? Wasn’t Jesus a Jew? How can one be sure their faith is teaching the absolute truth? And why was there so much finger pointing? Why did Jesus say, “I am not sent BUT UNTO the lost SHEEP of the HOUSE of ISRAEL”? (Matthew 15:24 KJV) Is salvation a one-time prayer you say with a pastor or in private?
Together we will examine topics that have divided the body of believers for some time now. Remember that number reaches over 41,000 Christian sects alone. I hope that after reading this book you have a better understanding of God, His creation and even the adversary who many refer to as Satan. Too many times men like to blame everything on Satan, they give him too much power and do not take enough responsibility for their own actions, intentions, and yes, THEIR HEARTS.
“The LORD saw how great the wickedness of the human race had become on the earth, and that every inclination of the THOUGHTS of the human HEART WAS ONLY EVIL all the time.” (Genesis 6:5 NIV) I believe we are approaching those days. Jesus/Yeshua said, “As it was in the days of Noah, so it will be at the coming of the Son of Man.” (Matthew 24:37 NIV) Man’s thoughts and his heart were consumed with evil. Most of the church likes to blame every attack and every problem on their enemy, “Satan or the Devil”.
As you read each chapter you will have more questions and even scriptures that may pop into your mind that makes you say, “But what about that Tekoa?” “What about when so and so did or said this in the book of …?” This manuscript is going to be similar to a house one might buy that hasn’t been remodeled since 1970. Once you paint the walls, the kitchen counters look old and outdated so you replace them and now the cabinets are sticking out like a sore thumb, so you replace them and then the floor. On and on the remodeling goes. Just continue reading, I promise I will try to eventually answer the questions in-between the pages of this book series.
Have I found a truth no one else has? No, but let me explain, I hear Pastors say, “Beware of those who think they have uncovered a TRUTH no one else has”… Beware of those who claim to have truth only they discovered… Doctrines of demons have been creeping into our church assemblies for years and years. All kinds of dogmas and witchcraft have trickled into the camp and I do believe today there are a people who have found a truth, but it’s not new, IT’S ANCIENT. They had to travel back to the Hebrew and to the days of the Apostles written about in the book of Acts to uncover it. Nevertheless, I believe they found some truths no one ever told them about at the local watering hole. Paul said, “For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them” Acts 20:29-30 KJV. They wanted men to be drawn to them and not HIM. Paul wrote these words sometime around 80 A.D, it is now 2014. Things have crept in folks.
First, we will look at a key player, our adversary, Satan. Shall we begin?”
