As you know if you’ve visited my blog, I have Dissociative Identity Disorder (DID), which used to be called Multiple Personality Disorder (MPD). I spend more and more time lately working with other multiples to teach them what I have learned so they can help themselves deal with their “inside” space, or the spiritual dimension where their alters and fragments reside when they are not “up front”.
I’ve been a pastor, teaching, healing and equipping others in the Body of Christ for over 18 years. Yes, I was a multi even then, but being multiple is not a mental disease or a condition of demonic possession. I can discern spirits, travel in the spirit, do battle in the spirit, and many other things as God has gifted and/or guided me. This does not make me special, but it does mean that as a disciple of Jesus/Yeshua, I am qualified to teach. As a multi who has experience with all of these issues, I am doubly qualified. Now that I’ve got my pedigree out of the way, I will proceed.
I recently wrote a post about battle strategies to help multis (people who have multiple personalities or alters) learn how to defend and navigate their systems safely. (You can read it on my blog – here’s the address: https://catenfriends.wordpress.com/2016/10/19/battle-strategies-1/) Without repeating a lot of what I said in that post I will state the most important point: TRY THE SPIRITS TO SEE WHETHER THEY ARE OF GOD!
This is not an attack on any ministry or person. This is not an attempt to slam or shame anyone.
Please read the love and concern I have for my fellow multis who are being taught or led astray, and do not take a position of opposition because you might read something here with which you take exception. I am issuing a warning, and those who do not need the warning need not read further.
I am writing to clarify and teach how to recognize a false gospel, a false Jesus, and even false locations in the spiritual dimension, so that we can all recognize and take note of how to discern these things every time!
There is a great blessing in helping pull a brother or sister out of a ditch! It is not “judgmental” of us to attempt to help someone we see is heading down the wrong path. In fact if we see it happening and we do NOT sound a warning, the consequences to that one will also be our consequences – their blood will be on our hands.
If after you have read this, you agree that I have told you the truth, and you want to help warn others, please feel free to disseminate this message far and wide. May God grant you to share in the reward with those who are blessed and helped by this message. Amen.
The View From the Wall
I’ve been seeing a very disturbing thing lately, and I have prayed about how to warn my brothers and sisters about it. Because there has not been enough instruction about testing the spirits, many people are falling prey to wicked delusions that are causing danger to multis (among others).
When the system of a multi has been compromised, it doesn’t simply lead to bad days and evil dreams, it can lead to spiritual imprisonment, injury, and even death.
People are being deceived and it is putting their souls in jeopardy. Satan is not a creator, he can only imitate, but he is a deceiver. He is bringing around the oldest sin in the book, and it’s playing on the internal movie screens of many unsuspecting men and women who are doing things in the spiritual realm without first safeguarding themselves properly. People are falling for false entities, and are even being led to false “locations” or visions because they do not test the spirits to see whether they are of God!
What false entities are people encountering in the spiritual realm? There are false angels, false Jesus, and false saints. There are aliens, mermaids, unicorns, dragons, hell dogs, and all manner of other evil and unclean spirits; all of these are actually evil, but some are in disguise as special beings.
In fact, some believers have been practicing judging Fallen Angels in the “Courts of Heaven” and saying these angels are now forgiven and working for the right side. What God has judged cannot be set aside by man.
Paul’s teaching on judging angels is found here:
“(3) Know ye not that we shall judge angels? how much more things that pertain to this life?” 1 Corinthians 6:3
Rendering this as God’s angels is faulty exegesis. The “angels” (aggelos) we will be judging are more aptly rendered “messengers” or “pastors” who have taught the message of Christ to others!
Back to Fallen Angels: make no mistake, those fallen angels who left their first estate have been reserved in darkness and will be thrown into the Lake of Fire prepared for them and for the devil. Anyone who teaches something different is calling God a liar, and is subverting His Truth and His Word – either because they are in ignorance of God’s word, or because they have been seduced by the deceiver. Here is God’s Word on the matter:
“(41) Then He will also say to those on the left hand, ‘Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels: Mathew 25:41
“(6) And the angels who did not keep their proper domain, but left their own abode, He has reserved in everlasting chains under darkness for the judgment of the great day;” Jude 1:6
“(4) For if God did not spare the angels who sinned, but cast them down to hell and delivered them into chains of darkness, to be reserved for judgment;” 2 Peter 2:4
Satan is known as the Prince of the Power of the Air, and his work is to entice us to fulfill the lust of our flesh, the desires of our flesh and our minds so that we become children of wrath! He wants to destroy our relationship, or better, prevent it so that he takes us away from God! He hates us, and he will do anything within his power to stop us from obeying God.
“(1) And you He made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins, (2) in which you once walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience, (3) among whom also we all once conducted ourselves in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind, and were by nature children of wrath, just as the others.” Ephesians 2:1-3
To Satan it was given power over all the kingdoms of the world, and so he tried to tempt Jesus with it by offering to Him what was His by right. The real temptation was that Satan was offering to get Jesus to bow down and bypass what He would do to save the world. Though Satan could not have known all of Jesus’ plan, it was enough that he knew that Jesus was God, and if he could tempt Him he would gain power over Him.
“(8) Again, the devil took Him up on an exceedingly high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. (9) And he said to Him, “All these things I will give You if You will fall down and worship me.” (10) Then Jesus said to him, “Away with you, Satan! For it is written, ‘YOU SHALL WORSHIP THE LORD YOUR GOD, AND HIM ONLY YOU SHALL SERVE.'” Matthew 4:8-10
What does this have to do with us? It means that if he can, Satan will seduce us into trying to become like God without being His disciples. He offers what is our birth right, but he puts a hook in it to lead us astray.
An example of this is a vision/dream I had where Satan came to me and showed me a celestial map of the portals that led to other dimensions, so that I could travel to different dimensions. All I had to do to receive this map was to kiss him. I refused him flatly, and the map disappeared. What I learned from this dream is that I could already travel to other dimensions if I had a reason to do so, and the Spirit of God would give me safe conduct. I didn’t really need that map.
What false locations or visions are people encountering in the spiritual realm? False “inside spaces” (in the case of people with DID/MPD), false Courts of Heaven, false pools or other bodies of water to trick multis into thinking these are healing waters when instead they trap the multis in their broken condition.
False Gospel, Another Spirit, False Seers, False Prophets, False Dreams, and Another Jesus
“(3) But I fear, lest somehow, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, so your minds may be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ. (4) For if he who comes preaches another Jesus whom we have not preached, or if you receive a different spirit which you have not received, or a different gospel which you have not accepted—you may well put up with it!” 2 Corinthians 11:3-4
When people get away from the truth of the Word, they can easily be led astray by the serpent. When teachers teach things that are contrary to a simple Gospel (good news), they lead others astray. There is condemnation for those who teach from their own souls, or worse, from false visions given from a different spirit. Jesus had this to say:
“(22) For false christs and false prophets will rise and show signs and wonders to deceive, if possible, even the elect. (23) But take heed; see, I have told you all things beforehand.” Mark 13:22-23
It was the sin of pride that caused Eve to listen to the lies of the serpent. Pride can make someone unwilling to bend or receive instruction! There was a lie mixed in with some truth, and Eve did not discern it. She was so puffed up by the serpent’s promise that she would be made wise like God that she fell for that lie. Pride can keep a person firmly set in a disastrous course!
Jesus mentioned Satan and demons and evil spirits more often than any other writer or prophet of the Old or New Testament. In His “Great Commission” He told his disciples, among other things, to cast out demons! He warned His disciples to be on guard against Satan, and warned that many of them would be hunted and afflicted by the devil on account of their faith and their ministry. It wasn’t because they didn’t believe enough, or because they harbored secret sin! Jesus gave them the Holy Spirit after He left, and said it would be enough to help the Disciples to carry out the work He gave to them and all Disciples who followed, including you and me.
“(1) Therefore if there is any consolation in Christ, if any comfort of love, if any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and mercy, (2) fulfill my joy by being like-minded, having the same love, being of one accord, of one mind. (3) Let nothing be done through selfish ambition or conceit, but in lowliness of mind let each esteem others better than himself. (4) Let each of you look out not only for his own interests, but also for the interests of others. (5) Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus, (6) who, being in the form of God, did not consider it robbery to be equal with God, (7) but made Himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bondservant, and coming in the likeness of men. (8) And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death, even the death of the cross. (9) Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, (10) that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, (11) and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:1-11
False Shepherds and Teachers, and Students with Itching Ears
What does it mean to have itching ears? It is a longing for what is forbidden! When we long for what is forbidden we are committing idolatry – spiritual adultery – towards our Heavenly Father. The natural sequence of events after that is that those who long for what is forbidden will not be able to listen to the real, pure truth of the Gospel, so they will park themselves in the land of fables (rendered as Fiction in Strong’s). While fiction is entertaining, we all understand it is not the truth, and if we reject the truth for fiction, we are no longer followers of the Way, but have turned aside from the true Path.
“(1) Ask the LORD for rain In the time of the latter rain. The LORD will make flashing clouds; He will give them showers of rain, Grass in the field for everyone. (2) For the idols speak delusion; The diviners envision lies, And tell false dreams; They comfort in vain. Therefore the people wend their way like sheep; They are in trouble because there is no shepherd. Zechariah 10:1-2
Look at any teaching that titillates or thrills us, and we can see the motive behind our desire! Is it exotic? Is it possibly dangerous? Does it require us to walk beyond the boundaries God has set for His children? Follow the fruit! Anything not of Love is not of God.
“(1) I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His kingdom: (2) Preach the word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching. (3) For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers; (4) and they will turn their ears away from the truth, and be turned aside to fables. 2 Timothy 4:1-4
False Apostles and Satan’s Angels of Light
“(13) For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into apostles of Christ. (14) And no wonder! For Satan himself transforms himself into an angel of light. (15) Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also transform themselves into ministers of righteousness, whose end will be according to their works.” 2 Corinthians 11:13-15
People can become so bewildered (this means left out in the wilderness, or lost) when you talk about false apostles and angels of light. They don’t believe in such things these days, and therefore they tend to skip over this part of the Bible. Satan’s greatest victory is won when people do not believe he exists. If he doesn’t exist, then he is not roaming about like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour.
“(8) Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:” 1Pe 5:8
People who are not warned to be on guard are the very ones who will fall victim to irresponsible or evil teaching. The church needs to learn how to discern spirits and test every word by the Word of God. The Holy Spirit is the one who convicts and convinces a man concerning sin, righteousness and judgment. If we have the Holy Spirit, we also have access to the gifts of the Spirit – among which is the discernment of spirits. But those who do not believe in this “spiritual stuff” or who don’t care, will easily be led astray.
Test the Fruit
There is a righteous law that we must obey; if it were not so, then Jesus would not have condemned those who practice lawlessness (or violation of law). Those who disobey Jesus are disobeying the Law of Love (Love the Lord your God with all your heart and soul and strength, and love your neighbor as yourself), and God’s righteous laws (Ten Commandments, which Jesus many times told His disciples to keep).
False teachers, false apostles, and false prophets will scream “LEGALISM” and in so doing promote lawlessness that puts their followers in danger of sinning. Why do they do it? Because they want to fulfill the lusts of their own flesh, the lust of their eyes, and the boastful pride of life. If they followed the Law of Love, they would not knowingly endanger their disciples by teaching them to disobey Christ.
Jesus had the following to say to His disciples:
“(15) Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing, but inwardly they are ravenous wolves. (16) You will know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes from thornbushes or figs from thistles? (17) Even so, every good tree bears good fruit, but a bad tree bears bad fruit. (18) A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a bad tree bear good fruit. (19) Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. (20) Therefore by their fruits you will know them. (21) “Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of My Father in heaven. (22) Many will say to Me in that day, ‘Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in Your name, cast out demons in Your name, and done many wonders in Your name?’ (23) And then I will declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you who practice lawlessness!’ Matthew 7:15-23
What is the point of asking God for greater revelation when we won’t even obey the simplicity of what He has already told us? The pride of a man makes him think he is smarter, bigger, better, faster, and worthy of more knowledge than his mates. And this is the age old sin of pride. The teacher doesn’t fall in his sin alone, but drags many others behind him, and he will face a greater condemnation from Christ. This is the fate of the one who does not teach from love, but from exaltation of himself. Self-promotion, self-glorification, and the desire for wealth all propel a false teacher, preacher, apostle and prophet toward the road to condemnation.
Test the Spirits
And then test them again! Once is not enough! Every spirit must be tested every time you meet in order to be certain that an imposter is not present.
“(1) Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits, whether they are of God; because many false prophets have gone out into the world. (2) By this you know the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ IS come in the flesh is of God, (3) and every spirit that does not confess that Jesus Christ IS come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Antichrist, which you have heard was coming, and is now already in the world.” 1 John 4:1-3
You may ask why there are so many imposters, demons and evil spirits sighted in a multiple’s spiritual dimension; alters and fragments are often created while evil spirits are invoked by the people who are torturing the multi. Therefore it is no wonder that evil spirits cling like opportunistic infections on the poor traumatized multiple.
ALL Spirits are 100% Subject to Christ! The guarantee we have is that God’s word tells us our authority in Christ to cast out demons. No question about it!
“(9) Therefore God also has highly exalted Him and given Him the name which is above every name, (10) that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those in heaven, and of those on earth, and of those under the earth, (11) and that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.” Philippians 2:9-11
Furthermore, Jesus disarmed Principalities and Powers! He has already given us the victory!
“(13) And you, being dead in your trespasses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, He has made alive together with Him, having forgiven you all trespasses, (14) having wiped out the handwriting of requirements that was against us, which was contrary to us. And He has taken it out of the way, having nailed it to the cross. (15) Having disarmed principalities and powers, He made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in it.” Colossians 2:13-15
The Devil and his angels, along with the Beast and the False Prophet, will be thrown in Lake of Fire! The devil hates God, and he hates us! Because his time is short, he is working feverishly to get as many of God’s children to fall off the track as possible. He knows his end is near, God told him a long time ago:
“(12) His eyes were like a flame of fire, and on His head were many crowns. He had a name written that no one knew except Himself. (13) He was clothed with a robe dipped in blood, and His name is called The Word of God. (14) And the armies in heaven, clothed in fine linen, white and clean, followed Him on white horses. (15) Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God. (16) And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written: KING OF KINGS AND LORD OF LORDS. (17) Then I saw an angel standing in the sun; and he cried with a loud voice, saying to all the birds that fly in the midst of heaven, “Come and gather together for the supper of the great God, (18) that you may eat the flesh of kings, the flesh of captains, the flesh of mighty men, the flesh of horses and of those who sit on them, and the flesh of all people, free and slave, both small and great.” (19) And I saw the beast, the kings of the earth, and their armies, gathered together to make war against Him who sat on the horse and against His army. (20) Then the beast was captured, and with him the false prophet who worked signs in his presence, by which he deceived those who received the mark of the beast and those who worshiped his image. These two were cast alive into the lake of fire burning with brimstone. (21) And the rest were killed with the sword which proceeded from the mouth of Him who sat on the horse. And all the birds were filled with their flesh.” Revelation 19:12-21
“(41) Then He will also say to those on the left hand, ‘Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels: Mathew 25:41
“(10) The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever. Revelation 20:10
I pray that those who see truth here will be helped by the Lord to re-index your “files”. May you receive the spirit of wisdom so that you may accept His Word. May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ cover you. May you grow up into maturity in Christ, a wise son or daughter, full of love and good fruit. May you hear these words of Jesus:
“(23) ‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you have been faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.‘ Matthew 25:23
