It is the truth about Elohim (God) and Yah'shua (Jesus) which sets the captives of SRA free (Jn.8:32) so it should come as no surprise to learn that Satanists go to great lengths to inculcate lies about them in their victims. The two commonest lies that I have encountered in ministering to SRA victims are as follows:
Any lie that will convince victims that Yahweh is impotent to help them, for whatever reason, serves to maintain the bondage and sense of hopelessness that SRA alters (fragmented or alternating personalities) feel. "Escape? Impossible!" they cry out. These false beliefs may be inculcated by brainwashing (using, for example, hypnosis), by Satanists or demons "acting the part" of Yah'shua and, by their actions, "proving" that He is impotent, disinterested, uncaring, angry, or even more evil than Satan himself. But by far the most common lie that they are told is that He is "past His time" - He's worn out. They will often admit that He is the creator of this world but so weary of the age-long struggle against Satan that He is all but ready to give up, and the supposed evidence cited for this is the rapidly increasing and unchecked evil in the world today. Most SRA victims are aware that He is powerful and may even have had encounters with his malakim (angels) and so the lie told them has to be credible to some extent. The fact that they have spent the better part of their lives as victims, have experienced abortive escapes from the Satanists, and generally noticed that Yahweh has not "shown up" in the hour of their desperate need (as they suppose) is normally enough to concinve them that Yahweh is indeed getting old, tired and impotent.
The second great lie that they are told is that Yah'shua (Jesus) died on the cross and remained dead. They are not taught about the resurrection. Their encounters with Christians are usually with Satanist infiltrators (especially those who are pastors) who, if they are plants in the older orthodox Churches, may well be liberals who do not believe in the physical resurrection and who may well be atheists themselves. And even if they are not Satanist plants per se, their contact will be with liberals or backslidden Christians who lead immoral and defeated lives. Satanists are careful to ensure that in the victims' contacts in the outside world they will only meet nominal, hypocritical, impotent, heretical or abusive Christians who are then portrayed as representitive of all believers. Whoever they meet, they will not be impressive. Remember also that SRA victims are accutely conscious of the presence of demons, and when they meet Christians who are demonised, they will draw the inevitable conclusion that there isn't practically much difference between Satanists and Christians.
Christians who believe in false or watered-down doctrines, or who lead lawless lives, are impotent to help SRA victims. Introducing these to the victim as part of their 'experience' of Christendom is therefore of advantage to the Satanists. In one case, an SRA victim had met several ministers before she had met Christ. One of them tried to witness to her but became an easy prey to one of the demonised alters who, by means of enchantments, succeeded in getting him to fall in love with her and soon withdrew in shame. In another case, a demonised alter succeeded not only in getting a minister to fall in love with her but also managed to bring chaos to his family life. I myself have witnessed attempts by demonised alters to do the same to me. Knocking out a Christian minister is a great prize for demons, especially if they are in deliverance ministry, and so attempts to sexually tempt such ministers is almost routine.
Because Yah'shua (Jesus) is Yahweh's designated Deliverer (Saviour), convincing victims that He died on the cross and remained dead is important because it counteracts any sort of belief in the power of the resurrection. Demons fear the blood of Yah'shua (Jesus) like nothing else and convincing victims that it is of no merit in helping them is a high priority for Satanists. When I tell victims that Yah'shua (Jesus) is my Master (Lord), they often respond with incredulity by saying something like, "But He's dead! How can you serve a dead Master??" Demons like to portray Him as a failure and the cross as a disaster rather than a victory. This is one of the key doctrines of the Moonie cult (Sun Myung Moon's formerly called Unification Church). Diluting the resurrection in other ways by claiming it was spiritual and not physical (as taught by the Jehovah's Witnesses, for example) is another way of rendering Yah'shua (Jesus) impotent to deliver the victim from demonic control. New Age 'Christians' deny the physical resurrection, along with occultists in general, who speak not only of the fact that He was only 'spiritually' resurrected but that every human being is to imitate Him by discovering the 'christ' within themselves and therefore save themselves. Do-it-your-self salvation is the basis of all Satanism, occultism and the nature religions.
Most victims I speak to tell me that I am "not like other Christians" they have met because they have only met counterfeit or fallen ones. One internet minister even strictly warned a victim against me because I belonged to a 'sect' and did not represent true Christianity but himself denied the existence of demons. Lies by false 'Christians' are as equally dangerous as the lies told by Satanists. Authentic deliverance ministers are few and far between and those Christians who do sincerely try to minister deliverance usually have no idea what they are doing and are typically charismatics who see demons under every bed and are baffled when the victims they are trying to help remained undelivered. If their covering is counterfeit they may well find themselves becoming victims of demonic delusion themselves. The spilling of illusion is a demonic forte.
Delivered victims of SRA have taught me much about counterfeit Christianity. On one occasion I sought assistance from a believer I did not know very well because noone else was at hand to help. I needed prayer backup and someone strong to resist any attempts at violent behaviour from the demonised victim. He was a charismatic, claimed to be filled with the Ruach haQodesh (Holy Spirit) and to be led by God. He claimed he had received revelation through the Ruach (Spirit) and knew what the victim's problem was, and so forth. Because it was a counterfeit spirit that he was led by, he had not the slightest idea what he was talking about, even though he believed that he did. Though he succeeded in tricking some of the alters with his false doctrine (which completely over-simplified SRA and MPD), his unulfilled promises not only failed to bring to pass the expected results but disillusioned my client. And when they were with him, some of the unsaved alters whom I had befriended informed me of the many demons that were in him. Bringing along 'any old Christian' is not sifficient, even if they claim to be Bible-believing and Spirit-filled. Not everybody is 'filled', not everybody is filled with the true Ruach (Spirit), and not everybody is who they think they are. Counterfeit Christians - deliberate or otherwise - do more harm that good, and unfortunately it is not atypical for victims to encounter these at certain points in their life. This Satan may encourage, especially if the victim is starting to resist him, in order to discourage them and reinforce the idea that escape from his grip is not only utterly impossible but ludicrous too. Thus when they meet genuine deliverance ministers it can take time to establish credibility and trust.
There are many ways, of course, in which a victim can be introduced, meet and experience the true God of Israel, Yahweh-Elohim, and know the saving power of Yah'shua (Jesus). One very demonised alter I knew was trained as a very successful psychic and had never know failure in 'reading' people's minds or characters. When she tried to 'read' me she was unable to and very confused. As hard as she tried to probe me, she could not discover anything about me. Baffled and desperate (because she had been taught that her gift was infallible), she wanted to know my secret. "What did you encounter?" I asked her. "A veil," she replied, "an impenetrable veil." "Do you want to know what that veil is? I asked. "Yes!!!" came the instant retort. "It is the blood of my Master," I replied, and went on to explain the saving and protecting quality of the atoning blood of Yah'shua (Jesus). Thus her eyes were opened to the possibility not only that Yah'shua (Jesus) was not dead but that He was a power to be reackoned with and that the demons had lied to her.
It is possible to introduce the truth of Yah'shua (Jesus) in many different ways to demonised alters who have been taught to believe in lies about Him all their lives. There is no single formula. Truth must be given circumstantially as the Ruach (Spirit) leads. Sometimes I have simply prayed with an alter to "flood the light of Yah'shua's truth" into their mental and emotional system and this has been enough to bring them into a shocked state of awareness that Yah'shua (Jesus) is very much alive. Interestingly, Satanists do not always conceal the existance of Yahweh's malakim (angels) because it is quite common for at least some of the alters in a victim to encounter them when, for instance, they are being forced to commit a child murder. Malakim (angels) very commonly come to the assistance of innocents.
Educating a victim through the power of the Ruach (Spirit) is usually a gradual process. Imagine someone who has been locked up in a completely dark room all their lives. The presence of any light is accutely painful. Try it sometime. Get someone to shine a bright torch (flashlight) into your eyes after you have been in pitch black for a while. The experience is not pleasant. Sometimes drastic methods like that are necessary in critical situations but for the most part gradual exposure to light is what liberates those held captive in darkness. Small injections of truth coupled with genuine love are the most potent means that a minister has in revealing the truth about Yahweh and Yah'shua (Jesus). It can, at times, be frustratingly slow. Claims to the contrary, there is no instant healing - except in very rare cases - of people who have been subjected to multiple trauma constantly throughout their lives and who have had noone to turn to for love and support. Friendshipping is the most important part of deliverance because learning to trust someone who will not betray them or stab them in the back, which has been their constant experience throughout life, is what they most crave. The revelation of Yah'shua (Jesus) is not first and foremost in words but in deeds of love. Seeing the minister sacrificially give, without expectation or force of any kind, is the most potent witness that there is: "This is how we know what love is: Yah'shua the Messiah (Jesus Christ) Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers" (1 John 3:16-17, NIV).
Correct saving doctrine is important in deliverance ministry but doctrinaire Christianity cannot save by itself. As ministers we have a three-fold responsibility: (a) being channels of unconditional love; (b) pointing to the truth; and (c) taking authority over the demonic when the victim is incapable of doing so herself. The deliverance minister must be a father or mother to the victim, a friend, a brother or sister, a trustworthy confident who keeps his/her word and in every way displays Christ-like behaviour. He must be a mirror of His Saviour so that Yah'shua (Jesus) becomes visible in a real and meaningful way, thus giving the victim confidence to yield her life completely to Him. The deliverance minister is a nurturer above all and must possess a unique blend of loving-kindness, tenderness, sympathy, patience, calmness, a keen awareness of the presence of Yahweh, alertness, stictness and spiritual endowment. The 'glory' and vain-confident types invariably cause mischief and harm. Deliverance is spiritual parenting. Most if not all SRA victims have never known what normal childhood is like. They have only ever known pain, desperation, sorrow and fear. They don't know what a true father or mother is like. Thus I work in a husband-wife team so that both aspects of parenting can be given. Solo ministers, and especially unmarried ones who have never been parents, invariably lack the essential tools that the experience of normal and balanced fatherhood and motherhood bring to ministry. The most successful deliverance ministries I have seen have always been husband-wife teams with the husband in the leading rôle. That there is a place for single and solo ministers I have not the slightest doubt but rarely in MPD and SRA.
The lies about Yahweh and Yah'shua (Jesus) are only broken when they are literally manifested in the life of the deliverance minister. Knowing scripture is not remotely enough, vitally important though that is. The minister must know Christ, and know that He delivers no matter what the enemy arraigns against him. For when you are working with an SRA victim, you are also - directly or indirectly - confronting the coven that controlls her as well as other satanic agencies who may have a vested interest in her. You are at war in the ultimate sense - you are facing everything that Satan can throw at you. Deliverance ministry is not for the faint-hearted or cowardly, nor those seeking vain glory whilst sheltering under noble words like "I am seeking the glory of God". The only reward that a deliverance minister receives in this kind of work is the pleasure of seeing the deliverance of souls and the private approbation of Yahweh. He will suffer distress, oppression, and illness, and all largely unseen by others. There is no public spotlight on him. Indeed, the majority of Christians will see him as a crank or a sectarian for even believing that demons exist in our modern and 'enlightened' world. This also is a witness for the victim - that someone is willing to suffer for her, which in turns reveals the ultimate suffering of the Son of Man ... and the love that persuades a man to thus suffer. All that victims have known is personal suffering - they have never experienced anyone love them in such a way as to suffer for them, let alone lay down their life for them as Yah'shua (Jesus) did. All they have known is betrayal and rejection. Knowing that their caregivers - the ministers - are willing to do this for them reveals to them the cosmic suffering and rejection Yah'shua (Jesus) experienced for their sins, leading them to contrition, repentance and joyful surrender. They must experience the acceptance and forgiveness of Christ both directly as well as indirectly through the ministers so that they will have the courage and confidence to forgive themselves as well as their abusers. That is often the hardest part of all for them - thus they must see this incarnated in others like themselves.
The Gospel of Yah'shua the Messiah (Jesus Christ) is primarily understood and accepted by example. Since the minister is dealing with the worst possible case scenario there is in SRA, he must himself be a worthy example to trust and emulate. I have been psychically attacked by cult alters, sometimes quite viciously. Often, in the past, I have been ill and physically burned out after such encounters, though this happens less and less frequently now. To know that I still love and care for them afterwards is a vitally important testimony of the love of Christ for them.
Theoretical Christianity is meaningless if you want to help SRA victims. You must be in a vital relationship with Yah'shua (Jesus) and be guided by Him step by step in the deliverance. If you try to help the victim in your own strength, you will raise false hopes and just do more damage. Yah'shua (Jesus) must be in control from beginning to end. You must also be in possession of your faculties and not allow yourself to be side-tracked. When I first began working with SRA I was simply awed by what I was discovering. Tough though this ministry is, it gives you insights into life and truth like nothing else. There is certainly no 'glory' in it in the sense of being recognised and the minister must never seek this - his eyes must be on Yah'shua (Jesus) at all times.
"You are my witnesses". Yahweh says (Is.43:10), revealing through consecrated and victorious lives the love and concern of out Heavenly Father for His abused children. The Christian life is the total inverse of the Satanic one - alters will tell you, once you have touched their hearts, that you have turned their world upside down. And it's true. Everything in the demonic realm is back-to-front and making the adjustment takes time. I remember the first time I ministered in the Balkans and getting totally confused because there they shake their heads when they mean 'yes' and nod when they mean 'no'. That is nothing in comparison. Have you ever tried to cut your hair in a mirror? Imagine that you are in a world where everything is reversed. When you turn left you gon right, when you turn right you go left, when you reach up you go down, etc.. Vistims of Satanic Ritual Abuse (SRA) live in a world difficult if no impossible for ordinary people to understand and they are alone in their suffering. Yah'shua (Jesus) descended into hell for us for three days and we, in our turn, must enter the victim's world to some extent to try and understand how they see and feel. I personally have been shown their world in visions and had glimses of their trauma which were horrific to see. Only the revelation of the true God can help them and give them the condifidence to reach out and trust. And they must first of all see that in us.
SRA victims are told many lies about Yahweh and Yah'shua (Jesus) - I have only touched on some. Many victims have been tied to crosses and been multiply raped or tortured to convince them that the cross is useless to help them. Demons have appeared as a counterfeit Yah'shua (Jesus) to them and been nasty to them. Sometimes small children victims have been presented to Satanist actors pretending to be Yah'shua (Jesus) and have then been abused by 'Him'. I have met child alters who were convinced that 'Jesus is BAD'. Children have been made to call upon Yah'shua (Jesus) to deliver them as they were being tortured and when He did not turn up believed that He either didn't care or didn't exist. The evil that has been perpetrated against them is just too ghastly to relate.
If you are not a minister and know an SRA victim, just give them your love and time. Reveal what Yah'shua (Jesus) has done for you by your deeds. But seek expert advice because many victims are deliberately booby-trapped to destroy inexperienced believers. By creating emotional soul-ties, demonic doorways are sometimes opened that can lead to serious oppression. It is Christ we are supposed to be getting them to link to, not us. We are deliverers only by proxy, and the moment we cross that thin line and start doing things in our own flesh we can open ourselves up to a major beating.
"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him. 18 Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe stands condemned already because he has not believed in the name of God's one and only Son. This is the verdict: Light has come into the world, but men loved darkness instead of light because their deeds were evil. Everyone who does evil hates the light, and will not come into the light for fear that his deeds will be exposed. But whoever lives by the truth comes into the light, so that it may be seen plainly that what he has done has been done through God" (John 3:16-21, NIV).
