BITTER ROOTS

THE ROOT CAUSE OF ALL MENTAL PERSONALITY DISORDERS

“Hurt people, hurt people”. Hurt people who do not want to forgive and heal, hurt people. The wounds we don’t heal, fuel our decisions and actions tomorrow. Decisions and actions fuelled by bitterness. Bitterness causes us to not see clearly, it clouds our view of things. A bitter person is a dangerous person to themselves and to others. Gall is the content of the gall bladder and anytime gall touches any other part of the body it completely spoils it and makes it bitter. A bitter heart is like gall. Most of us would rather pretend we are fine, rather than just admit we are angry, hurt or bitter and receive freedom. However it’s time to stop pretending, because bitter roots spread to the trunk, branches, leaves and fruits too. When you are bitter it will be exposed through what you entertain, your speech, how you treat other people and by how you respond to certain situations.

The issue of narcissistic personality disorder has become a pandemic now. Cluster personality disorders in the physical are a manifestation of the Jezebel spirit (responsible for control), Python spirit (responsible for manipulation) Leviathan spirit (responsible for pride). The story of Jezebel is found in 1 and 2 Kings and Revelations 2:18-23, the story of Leviathan is found in Job 41 vs 34 and the story of Python is found in Acts 16:16. Both Jezebel and Leviathan are spirits that live in the water, pythons have different types some live in the water too. Evidence of demonic spirits that manifested as strange water creatures is found in (Psalm 104:26, Psalm 24:2, Isaiah 27:1, Jobs 26:5, Revelation 12:12, 2 Kings 2:19-21, Job 41:31). Jezebel is a queen demon (merman like) and Leviathan is a king demon (dragon like), but both these spirits can possess both males and females interchangeably. The Jezebel spirit hates light, truth, order and authority. Personality disorders are passed down in families, there are a bloodline issue. When a child has a personality disorder, it never fails that both the parents have it and the child’s grandparents do too and it goes on, in the family tree. The bible says in Ezekiel 16:44, demons can enter the host through the bloodline, Ezekiel 16:44 shows this by stating, “like mother, like daughter”.

If a parent is abusive and abuses their child and the child does not forgive the abusive parent, they give the Jezebel spirit and the other spirits a door to come into their lives to operate against them. Children who are abandoned by their parents, rejected, accursed by careless speech, born into abusive families and experienced the father or mother wound through psychological, emotional or physical abuse and “illegitimate” children born out of wedlock have an automatic open door from childhood for the enemy to come into their lives due to their wounds. Satan uses emotional holes to come into our lives. Demons can enter the human body through different sins as well which include participation in occult activities, dishonouring parents, injustice to the weak and helpless, sexual immorality, alcohol, drugs etc. However, in this blogpost we are going to focus mainly on how demons ruin people’s lives through bitterness, because bitterness is the root cause of everything. Unforgiveness and bitterness is basically hating someone, which is also equated to murder in the bible (1 John 3:15). Bitterness is the only sin in the bible which explicitly states right next to it, that it defiles. The original narcissist is lucifer (Isaiah 14:12-14) . The reason why bitterness is a deadly sin, is because when you choose not to forgive you take on the very nature of Satan, because the reason why he is called Satan today from Lucifer is because of bitterness. Unforgiveness is the gateway to so many other sins – this is pride, self righteousness, hatred, revenge, jealousy and gossiping.

Narcissistic father (borderline personality disorder) + narcissistic mother (narcissistic personality disorder) = disordered children who turn into narcissistic parents too and the generational curse continues until someone says enough is enough and commits themselves to break the cycle. Although I created a chart for how disorders are formed from the mother, father wound, because it is the most popular one. Unresolved wounds from rejection from lovers and friends (bullying) can also create an open door for personality spirits.

“Make peace with ALL men, for without holiness no man shall see God. Looking carefully lest anyone fall short of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up cause trouble, and by this many become defiled” (Hebrews 12 vs 14-15)

The bible says bitterness causes trouble and trouble means difficulties in life. Unforgiveness is a sin and sins separate us from God and open demonic doors and give the devil a legal right over our lives. God’s word tells us not to give Satan a foothold or a door to come into our lives (Ephesians 4:27). Unforgiveness can invite demons into our lives to torment us. Narcissistic personality disorder or borderline personality disorder are merely vindictive spirits. “I was constantly treated badly, so I’m going to stop being nice so that people won’t walk over me”. “Why did my father abandon me, I’m angry and bitter”. “Why did I not have a close relationship with my mother and experienced the warmth of motherly love like my friends, I hate her”. “It sucks that I can’t post my parents on fathers or Mother’s Day, because I don’t even feel like I love them”. “Why did my mother go overseas and left me”. These are silent voices repressed in so many people’s minds and hearts who have narcissistic personality disorders and these silent voices gave the devil a door to come into their lives. Bitterness is the door that opens so many spirits in our lives, the main spirit it gives rise to is the spirit of rejection. In my upcoming book I will address how the spirit of rejection attracts other people with the same spirit so that it deepens it and also causes the people to sabotage the few good relationships they have with people who actually love them so that it alienates them, so as to easily destroy them in isolation aka “abandonment issues”.

God led the Israelites to Marah. Which was called a place of well with bitter water. They needed water, but they couldn’t drink it, because it was bitter. Moses was then instructed by God to throw a log into the bitter water to sweeten it, so that they could drink. This was a prophetic sign that, bitterness had to go, for them to reach the Promise Land. The Israelites had more than 400 years of slavery that had been running through their bloodline and they were bitter about it. The Israelites wandered in the desert for so many years and many didn’t get to the Promise Land, because they still needed deliverance in their souls from bitterness.

Most interpersonal problems are grounded in spirit realm issues that’s why the bible says our weapons are not carnal (2 Corinthians 10:4) and we don’t wrestle against flesh and blood, but against principalities, powers, rulers of darkness and wickedness in high places (Ephesians 6:12), which are four ranks of demons. The scientific explanation of some diseases, closely looking at hereditary causes, diet and lifestyle absolutely make sense. However attributing people hearing voices everyday telling them to do dangerous or embarrassing things they do not want to do, and attributing this to “chemical imbalances” is seducing spirits lying to a generation that hasn’t delved deeper in the things of the spirit. Around 95 % of the diseases out there are spiritual. I read on a forum about a month ago, a woman saying she had OCD and she barely went out during the summer, because her OCD made her to believe if she looked at the sun, she would go blind. WHAT? The devil is surely cunning and him and his delusional spirits, false burdens, end time mind control, mind binding spirits and spirits of insanity are a liar. People with personality disorders often ALL have a pattern of cycles of rejection, rebellious behaviour, stagnancy, unstable relationships and inability to get married early, eating disorders, reckless sexual behaviour etc and this is not a coincidence. Mental personality disorders were not there many years ago, but because of the increase of lawlessness and wickedness many strange illnesses are being discovered now. If you are struggling with a mental disorder, but you still live a somewhat normal life, you have a lot of grace upon your life and you need to thank God. When Jezebel projects witchcraft in your life in the form of a mental illness: she wants you to be completely insane, because she knows she would have destroyed your legacy, because you can’t have a family or fulfil your God given purpose, because she has your mind in a witchcraft cauldron. Spirits of insanity are spirits that want to disgrace people & take away all the glory that God gave them.

Self defence mechanisms and self-destructive behaviours people adapt as a result of coping with the abuse is how fear and anxiety demons enter people as children. If you are still using self defence mechanisms and behaving in a destructive manner as a grown adult, it’s time to seek deliverance from the demons trapping you in that childhood trauma. During dissociation, the demons will enter the child and make them feel like they are doing them a favour and helping them to cope whilst putting them in bondage. Many abuse survivors will tell you after the abuse they would binge eat (gluttony) or watch pornography, because this is the closest version of love they felt. Some would idealize absolutely anybody on social media, without looking closely at their character and force themselves to believe its love to escape their core shame and toxic loneliness that would be too painful to deal with in their environment. Obsessive love is a coping mechanism, because it’s latching on to the idea of love and ruminating on it, with absolutely anyone, because you want to distract yourself from your chaotic reality. If you are this person, I want you to know that, self-love is hard if you grew up in a dysfunctional home, yes. However coping mechanisms always hurt more in the end. Please heal, because self-love will get easier one day.

MY TESTIMONY – ME versus THE PYTHON SPIRIT

In Acts 16 Paul encountered a girl who was possessed. The bible says she had a “spirit of divination”. In Greek mythology, divination was the name of the “Pythian serpent”, which means this girl had a python spirit. The python spirit is a spirit which is responsible for depression and all the anxiety disorders of this generation. It lays it’s eggs in your mind and if you don’t put up a good fight and fight back, those eggs will hatch in your mind and will become a stronghold. People with anxiety disorders will admit that the anxiety slowly grew over time until it became a disorder. Unlike other snakes, pythons don’t use venom to kill, because it cannot produce any. Instead it uses a technique whereby it grabs you by its teeth and then wraps its coil around you and squeeze the life out of you slowly and then swallow you in one piece. The python spirit intimidates, shocks, constricts and then suffocates. Anytime you feel constricted around a person or constricted within yourself, you are dealing with the python spirit that is squeezing the life out of you slowly. After the situation in the garden of Eden. God’s ruling was that, he would put enemity between the snake and Eve. Eve would bruise the heel (head) of the serpent and the snake would also bruise the head of the woman and her seed. When you are experiencing mental illness, your head has been bruised by a serpentine spirit. Years ago I battled what I regard as an intense battle against depression and anxiety. During that time I was home bound for a year and a half with my life at a stand still. So uninspired, so hopeless and so lifeless, I was pretty much on my death bed. I had stopped living, praying or going to church months ago, but then one day I had a dream…

In the dream there were hundreds and hundreds of what I saw as thick snakes. I was walking on a narrow path and on my left side and right side were these snakes. I woke up and thought nothing of it. A few weeks later I had another dream and in the dream I was in my bedroom, but everything in my bedroom looked really small, even the house was downsized and tiny. I felt so suffocated, but I couldn’t leave the room neither. I woke up and asked God what does that mean, because it was a very peculiar dream and he said, “in that dream you were in a coffin and that’s where you are going to end up if you don’t fight back Jezebel’s python spirit of witchcraft. RISE UP AND WALK, daughter of Israel !!! I know we haven’t talked in a while, but just trust me one more time and let us fight together”. I said okay God. Then I started fighting back. The first days I didn’t say much, I would only wake up and declare, “I will not die, but I will live to proclaim the good works of my Lord, Jesus”. Slowly my paralyzed legs started to gain power until I woke up from my death bed and started finding the strength to smile again, to take walks again, to go to the gym again, to go to church again. God had stirred up the victor and conqueror in me again. He said, all the tough numerous battles and pain you went through and you used to think it was “too much” for your age, they where preparing you and anointing you for a time like this, so that you would conquer and then help a generation that has been intimidated by the python spirit, when they were given authority over it.

I got tired of being a slave to fear and I decided to stop being lukewarm and wear the full armour of God and draw a clear line between Satan and all his spirits and me. I confronted the python spirit with the zeal and fire of God and the python spirit had no option, but to bow down to the authority of the blood of Jesus and the anxiety bit by bit started subsiding. The thoughts that caused the anxiety started coming into mind less and less and less. The python spirit started to loosen its coil over me. I had bruised the head of the serpent. It wasn’t easy, because spirits think they are gangstas and bad too so they would fight back aggressively. When spirits arise in armies and rule that this sickness will end in death. Only God’s mercy can save you, God will always raise a standard against your enemies’ “highest standard”. Victory over the enemy is a narrow road that a few will find and it will take faith. Only the violent will take it by force and win against depression and anxiety in this generation.

The cords of death entangled me, the anguish of the grave came over me; I was overcome by distress and sorrow. Then I called on the name of the Lord: “Lord, save me!” (Psalm 116:3-4)

SCIENCE versus THE BIBLE

In the cluster b personality disorders, we have narcissistic personality disorder, borderline personality disorder, histrionic personality disorder and anti-social personality disorder. For these disorders people do not have any physical deformities, physical pain or neither are they bed bound. These people are fully functional and do everyday activities like everyone else, they seem very “normal”, but they are very disturbed mentally, they are internally ill, which is what the bible calls “affliction” and “oppression”. In the bible in Luke 13:11 we see Jesus healing a woman who had been crippled for 8 years and the cause of the sickness is attributed to “a spirit of infirmity” indicating that demons had been granted power to inflict a disability. We also see a man who was dumb and was healed after a demon had been casted out (Matthew 9:22-33). This shows us that no matter how much scientific explanation there is to all illnesses, in some cases spirits can manifest into any type of illness it desires.

Cluster b personality disorders are characterised by “symptoms” such as these below: 

Medical symptom- sensitivity to criticism. 

Bible – hating correction and reproof (Proverbs 9:7-9) (Proverbs 12:1) 

Medical symptom – inability to regulate emotions, dangerous erratic behaviour. 

Bible – unrighteous anger and rage (James 1:19-20) (Proverbs 29:11) (Proverbs 22:24) (Psalms 37:8-9) 

Medical symptom – grandiose sense of self-importance, needs constant praise and admiration. 

Bible – ungodly haughtiness and lack of humility (Proverbs 16:18) (James 4:6) 

Medical symptom – Lives in a fantasy world that supports their delusions of grandeur. Exaggeration of achievements and talents. 

Bible – spirits of strong delusion (2 Thessalonians 2:11-13) (Isaiah 44:20) (Romans 1:28) 

Medical symptom – Sense of entitlement. 

Bible – self-seeking, selfish ambition and an ungrateful heart (Romans 2:8) (Philippians 2:3) (1 Peter 4:10) 

Medical symptom – Lack of empathy. Frequently demeans, intimidates, bullies, belittles others. Cruel. Abusive.

Bible – cold, evil, wicked, unregenerate heart (Psalms 36:4) (Psalms 1:6) (Zechariah 1:4) (2 Timothy 3:2) 

Medical symptom – Easily jealous. 

Bible – envy, covetousness (James 3:14-15) (1 Corinthians 3:3) (Proverbs 6:34) 

Medical symptom – Controlling and power seeking. 

Bible – male temptress, female seductress, manipulation and witchcraft (Proverbs 2:16-19) (2 Corinthians 11:14) (1 Timothy 4:1) (Romans 16:18) 

Medical symptom: Idealize and devalue people, splitting. 

Bible: The phenomena of splitting and idealizing and devaluing is merely bitterness. Splitting is basically demons manipulating people’s emotions. A double minded man is unstable in all his ways (James 1:6-8) (James 1:22-25) 

Medical symptom: Hypersexuality and likely to cheat. 

Bible: spirit of lust and perversion, absence of the Holy Spirit that gives self-control (1 Peter 2:15) (2 Peter 2:18) 

Medical symptom: unstable friendships and relationships. 

Bible: you cannot know love unless you know God (1 John 4:7-8) (1 John 4:20) 

Medical symptom: Impulsive self-destructive behaviour – unsafe sex, binge eating, drugs, alcohol. 

Bible: Sin (Galatians 5:19-21) (Colossians 3:5-6) 

Medical symptom: Chronic feelings of emptiness or pathological loneliness. 

Bible: voids that can only be filled by God. King Solomon had it all, women, riches etc, but in the end he called it all vanity and worthless – Solomon 2:11 

Other symptoms of cluster b personality disorders include fear of abandonment, but the word of God said God would never leave us nor forsake us (Deuteronomy 31:6) and if we have God, we have all we need, and we should find security in that. Fear of abandonment from humans is demonic control from Satan, because (2 Timothy 1:7) says “God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, of love and of a sound mind, so if you have a mind that is not sound and experience fear, it is not from God. Paranoia is also a symptom of personality disorders. Abuse survivors often feel like everyone is out to get them. They are always looking over their shoulders thinking what if someone attacks me, robs me etc, because the people they trusted and were close to are the ones who abused them and caused them harm, so they start living in paranoia thinking what luck do I have with strangers then. If you experience this, I want you to know that, you are still here, because of a testament of God’s grace and protection, it hasn’t been about you looking over your shoulders, it’s all God, there are also a lot of good people out there who are not “out to get you” and have good intentions. Paranoia is from the enemy. Another symptom is core shame. Core shame often happens, because of what was done to you by people you highly respected and expected better from. As humans we are precious and there are certain things you just shouldn’t do to people, so when people are abused and mistreated, they feel like they are treated that way, because that is what their value equates to and then they carry toxic shame. Toxic shame and guilt is often projected by the abuser to the victim. To all abuse survivors, I hate the word it’s all in your head, but in this case, it’s really all in your head, you don’t have to be bound by shame. Body dysmorphia which comes with self-harm is also a symptom of personality disorders. But the bible says our bodies were bought with a price (1 Corinthians 6:20), we were made in God’s image (Genesis 1:27) and we are fearfully and wonderfully made (Psalm 139:14). Any voice that says anything contrary to these declarations is from Satan and we need to counteract it with God’s word and shut it down. Concerning self-harm, we see a man in Mark 5:1-20. The bible says the man was possessed with demons and he would self-harm and cut himself, until Jesus delivered him. Meaning self-harm isn’t a symptom of a disorder, it is a spirit that is given a right, by strongholds of not feeling good enough.

There is a medical term concept called comorbidity. It is the presence of one or more additional conditions co-occurring with a primary condition. The additional condition may also be a behavioural or mental disorder. One time I was reading a YouTube comment and a young woman said she had borderline personality disorder, type 2 bipolar disorder, anxiety, depression, diabetes, complex post-traumatic stress disorder and an eating disorder and this is a comorbidity case. However the bible says, in Luke 11:24-26, “When a demon is cast out of a man, it goes to the deserts, searching there for rest; but finding none, it returns to the person it left, and finds that its former home is all swept and clean. Then it goes and gets seven other demons eviller than itself, and they all enter the man. And so, the poor fellow is seven times worse off than he was before.” This verse makes it clear why comorbidity is a thing. These people are possessed by the legion spirit, that is characterised by demons that move in packs and armies. In Mark the demons spoke back and said, “my name is legion, for we are many”. People with borderline personality disorder are also said to highly likely commit suicide, because they live in chronic torment. This again is not surprising, because we know that the devil comes to kill, steal and destroy (John 10:10).

CLUSTER B PERSONALITY DISORDERS & EARLY CHILDHOOD DISTORTION

Growing up in toxic, dysfunctional, unhealthy homes gives rise to so many trauma driven beliefs. Beliefs that those people fully believe as real, but there are not, because they were conditioned and programmed to believe so by their abuser. The enemy will give you suggestions that you are not good enough and if you dwell on the pain and bitterness sooner or later you will start believing the lies as truth and be engulfed by the enemy. People with childhood trauma often have trauma driven beliefs such as all men or women are like the person who abused them in their childhood, and this is the reason why now there are toxic feminists and toxic masculinity movements that hate on the opposite gender and blind homosexuality. Many narcissists are mostly misogynistic or toxic feminists which can often be tracked to childhood abuse.

“You Christians call everything a spirit” = ignorance = blind to the devil’s schemes = the devil is happy. There is a spirit behind every negative behaviour you just can’t bring yourself to stop. You must call these spirits by name.

HOW TO BE FREE FROM PERSONALITY DISORDERS

When Jezebel projects witchcraft to you. It’s important not to accept the illness. I have seen believers who take ownership of disorders and anxiety and say MY OCD, MY anxiety. It is NOT yours. It doesn’t matter if you feel like you have that illness or have all the symptoms. It is NOT yours to keep.

Deliverance is never overnight, it is always a process. Deliverance is more than just casting out demons, it’s turning away completely from sin, it’s renewing your mind, it’s healing wounds, it’s teaching people how to completely keep the door that opened them to demonic spirits closed. Churches that pick up people randomly from the congregation sometimes visitors and cast their demons out, operate in major damaging error. I don’t cast out demons from people unless they are highly demonized and are really struggling to cope. I take people through a process. People will honour the process that they go through to be free, otherwise you will have to cast out their demons every year. Only desperate people receive deliverance. Only people who are furiously tired of being a door mat to Jezebel and her demons and the torment and pain in their life get free and free indeed. Its a waste of time taking unrepentant people through deliverance. Salvation is an urgent matter, but it is also about personal will. No one can be forced into a relationship, because a relationship would require you to do free will relationship things daily, it is the same thing with God. God placed evil under your feet, but first you must sit at the table of your inheritance by wearing the full armour of God. Everything in the bible comes with a condition, for a latter tangible result. Many people think the things of God do not work, because they are not willing to endure the journey to the promised land, they want shortcuts. The things of God are about protocols. Most people think they don’t work, because they are not willing to follow the protocols, because of rebellious behaviour. But even Jesus followed protocol, by coming down in flesh to die for our sins. Don’t go to a minister and expect that one prayer will automatically deliver you from things you got yourself into that are strongholds. Find out what strongholds mean in a dictionary, strongholds do not come down easily. I have seen people calling pastors and prophets false, because they didn’t want to do the work. The kingdom of God is about a personal journey with God, if we didn’t go through the process, we wouldn’t have the revelation of the deeper parts of God and what he is capable to do if only we submit ourselves to him.

My senior pastor preached about Luke 19:10, a month ago. In Luke 19:10 we see Zacchaeus climbing the sycamore tree so that he would see Jesus, because he had decided that, he was tired of his sinful lifestyle and needed deliverance. He didn’t care about embarrassing himself, he didn’t care about falling off that tree, he didn’t have doubts of what if I do it vain and Jesus doesn’t see me. He had faith. Unless you get to Zacchaeus point of desperation, deliverance will never come. Unless you decide to cleanse your timeline on social media, separate yourself from certain friends, stop being consumed with looking “cool”, drinking alcohol, having premarital sex, watching pornography etc you will never receive complete deliverance. Eventually Jesus sees Zacchaeus (it wasn’t guaranteed, because Jesus was always around a noisy multitude) and went to his house, because when we draw near to God, he will draw near to us (James 4:8). The reason why I said deliverance is a process for some is, because some matters are foundational bloodline strongholds that you need to keep on pulling and casting down until they loose their hold and fall, because there are high up there exalting themselves. How long a person has battled something can affect the length of the deliverance process. Word curses by yourself that you established ignorantly or by people with much authority like your parents need to be renounced, if people don’t do this, deliverance can be long until this is identified and the curses are reserved and broken. Not fully surrendering to God as well can lengthen the deliverance process.

Obviously demons operate in packs. The python spirit lays 20-100 eggs, if you have been living a life of bitterness and sin or having an inconsistent walk with Christ. This spirit was bringing 7 other python spirits to you every time and they were laying 20-100 eggs in your mind times 7 demons. In the physical realm people won’t be able to see anything, but in the spiritual realm you will be walking around with hundreds of pythons that have hatched in your mind. Then in the physical realm you will start having intrusive thoughts, strange obsessive thoughts, abnormal phobias, thoughts of self harm and suicide, obsession with being cruel to people etc. This is mere demonic torment, it’s not normal. This is why deliverance against most demonic spirits will not be instant. If there were hundreds of demons influencing you, they leave a few at a time over a period. In Acts when Paul casted out the python spirit, the bible says they left WITHIN an hour. This was said to show that deliverance is not always instant.

Just as everything is about God’s timing so is deliverance. If God wants to teach you certain things or wants to train you for ministry work, it’s going to take weeks or months to be free indeed. However, in the midst of all this you will be lighter, have rest and he will sustain you with his supernatural strength until the battle is won. Have faith and keep pressing. Do not die before the promise land.

“Sometimes deliverance takes time, because God wants you to recognise the heniouness of sin , learn how to be persistent in prayer until God answers and mature your faith. The time you spend learning to deal with demons develops skills in spiritual warfare. God has a plan and a purpose for our lives which goes beyond receiving deliverance”.

When God frees you, your soul will be released which is your mind, will and emotions. Instead of fighting the devil from the inside where you have no control, you will start only fighting him from the outside. He can only make suggestions to you that you can shut down instead of being controlled and having no control of your emotions, mind and will whatsoever.

1. FORGIVE & MEAN IT

Relive the trauma, remembering every abuse and hurt and its intricate details and how it made you feel. Instead of continuing to be numb like your childhood required you to when you didn’t have a voice, this time allow yourself to feel it all and grieve and cry. Feel the pain, because the more pain you feel and release it through those tears and telling God how it all made you feel, you will be slowly letting go of the unforgiveness that was gripping you. You will feel lighter. You will receive healing. Write the names of all the people you need to forgive and forgive them . You need to forgive them with an understanding that, they were merely being used by the devil. I have heard many stories of people who were healed from arthritis, fibromyalgia, OCD, bipolar, diabetes and cancer after they let go of bitterness completely. I was one of those people too. It is not a gimmick. One time my senior pastor’s wife told me a story whereby, a woman was disabled, due to arthritis. One day she encountered a prophetic man of God who heard an instruction from God to simply ask the woman. “Where is your grandmother”. Immediately before she could even fully answer the question, she broke down and cried and eventually opened up and said my grandmother died, but she was the woman who raised me and abused me. The prophet told her to let go of the bitterness and forgive her and see what would happen to her arthritis. Months later she was healed.

FORGIVE GOD

Yes, you read that right, forgive God. I remember coming across a tweet on twitter that said, forgive God years ago and I was like, God can never be wrong this brother is blaspheming him, but as I grew in my faith I realised a lot of us are angry at God and the only way to let it go, is if we take it as if we are forgiving him. God is our father, he is a friend, that is why that famous song says what a friend we have in Jesus, it’s okay to be angry at God, but it’s not okay to stay angry. Bitterness at God is the same as bitterness towards humans, it equally defiles us. When we haven’t healed, we often look at God and say you are sovereign, so why did you let that happen God, but being sovereign doesn’t mean that (whatever you are thinking). We look at God and we say God why did you give me abusive parents, why did you give me a life full of obstacles, why me, why did you let them die, why have you forgotten me, why and why God. Then we are bitter at him, but you need to forgive him. As you keep on living, you will realise that every tough thing you ever went through was necessary for the seasons to come in your life. If I had not gone through abuse, childhood trauma and seasons of battles in my life I would not have gotten the wisdom to write this blog and help other people.

3. HUMBLE YOURSELF

The bible says God speaks in a still small voice. He is not like humans who must speak loudly and repeat them self, multiple times to make a point. God will never compete with our pride. Experiencing God in all his multi-dimensions, requires us to fully surrender and you cannot fully surrender if you have any ounce of pride. Pride comes from the belief of self-sufficiency and if you are self-sufficient why would you need anyone? But one who understands that God is everything and we are nothing outside of him, can humble themselves. The sinner must get to a place where they say God, I desperately need you. I cannot live this life anymore without you. You are not an accessory or a choice like some of the things in this world. You are the essence of life. There is no me without you. There is no sane me without you. There is no stability in me without you. You are Jehovah who sits on the throne of our lives. God is moved by a desperate, humble heart. Two instances in the bible we see two ill people being told your faith has healed you, because of their humility and desperation. If you want healing from God, you need to be humble and desperate.

4. SOUL TIES & WORD CURSES MUST BE RENOUNCED

Soul ties must be severed in Jesus name, because they are also a gateway for demons to come into our lives. Any promise words, sexual interaction that formed the soul tie must be renounced and repented from. Any gifts exchanged that might mean the relationship is still intact in the spiritual realm must be returned back to the person or thrown away. Curses that were spoken over you, by people must be rendered null, void and judged. Things like sororities and Greek life, participation in horoscopes, yoga etc must be renounced as well. A lot of people hold on to horoscopes and I have seen other Christians arguing with believers about them. Horoscopes is dabbling into the occult, it is divination. If you are a Christian that still argues with other Christians about horoscopes, yoga, sororities etc you are going to argue about your idols all the way to hell. I exhort you to take heed. The devil is hiding himself so well in games, music videos, sisterhood and brotherhood etc. Get your discernment up. In Isaiah 47:13, God rebukes Israel with: “All the counsel you have received has only worn you out! Let your astrologers come forward, those stargazers who make predictions month by month, let them save you from what is coming upon you.” With this verse we see that astrologers and stargazers are displeasing to God. There are in the category of sorcerers.

5. GENERATIONAL SINS MUST BE REPENTED OF

Prayers of repentance must include repentance of your sins, parents’ sins and forefathers sins, so that if there are any demonic doors, portals, ancestral altars and generational curses that were established knowingly or in ignorance are broken.

6. ASK FOR FORGIVENESS FROM THOSE YOU HURT

You need to take ownership of the mistakes you made when you hurt others. The Jezebel spirit is a spirit that seeks to kill, steal and destroy. It wreaks havoc in people’s lives. If you have been allowing this spirit to use, you as a tool of destruction for the kingdom of darkness. You need to reach out to the people that you did wrong and hurt and sincerely apologise. When we have people constantly speaking negatively on our name and crying on our name, it can activate curses, so make peace with all men. The bible also talks about how when you do bad things to some people, you were directly doing it to God himself (Matthew 25:34-40), this can cause us to fall short of God’s grace. Whilst you are operating under the Jezebel spirit it gives you false pride that makes you feel like you are immune to consequences, but the true reality is that you are not. God is a God of justice and wrath.

7. TRUE REPENTANCE

You need to repent of all sins. You need to repent from self-hate, self rejection. We need to repent from using things that are initiated to the marine kingdom for false beauty and to seduce (decide this on your own convictions). Repent concerning fantasy lust, lust, seduction, self glorification, rebellion, perversion, unforgiveness, wrath, inability to apologise, slander, unteachableness, deception, doubt, unbelief, passivity, pride, false humility etc. When we repent, we need to stay free, because the spirits will hoover to try and find an open door to come back into our lives again.

8. CAST OUT THE DEMONS

The issue of casting out demons is controversial amongst Christians. Some believe Christians cannot have demons, some do. The spirit of a man belongs to God and our spirit is united with the Holy Spirit when we repent and cannot be touched by the devil, but our bodies and minds, which is the soul can still be afflicted by evil spirits. When we get saved we get a new spirit, but don’t get a new body or soul. The state of our souls can only be cleansed through healing and expelling of demons and consistent righteous living. Christians can have demons, but not be possessed as in ownership, because our bodies were already bought on the cross, we belong to God. Christians can only be demonized. Salvation doesn’t automatically come with breaking generational curses and freedom from demons, that’s why every Christian must go through deliverance after getting saved. Narcissists (people with cluster b personality disorders), however are possessed by the devil, he has full possession and control of them. Strongholds are rigid patterns, to overcome them needs strenuous work. Some demons will leave automatically when you forgive, some will leave when they are casted out and the chief demons will leave slowly as you become holy and righteous and stick to it. Demons are bold, stubborn and rebellious especially the Jezebel and Python spirit they are very powerful demons. Most demons as well people struggle with had been living inside of them for years, sometimes decades so these ones are normally stubborn and cannot leave through self-deliverance prayers only, but fasting and consistent holiness. Demons desperately need somewhere to live, because they are disembodied. It’s important to know the nature of demons. They need to be told to leave with authority, otherwise they will not. This work was specifically allocated to disciples as well, that’s why self-deliverance might not always expel everything. There are Christians out there who have demons not, because they don’t have the Holy Spirit or live holy, but because of very simple things that defile them. Most believers say a Christian cannot have demons and the Holy Spirit at the same time, but we see Paul in Romans 7:21 saying, “I find then a law, that, when I would do good, evil is also present with me.” And we also know that God is omnipresent, so he is present everywhere, whether demons are there or not. Casting out demons was done by Jesus himself and the bible also says it’s also a phenomenon that would follow those filled with his spirit and disciples (Mark 16:17). Casting out demons is the believers’ bread, because the dangers of casting out demons out of unbelievers is, they will come back. That’s why after Jesus would cast out demons, he would make a strong statement and say go and sin no more. Satan hates deliverance ministry, because he wants people to be ignorant so that he keeps them in bondage. If you are dealing with personality spirits and have decided to repent and commit yourself to a life of holiness, please find a sound doctrine church with a deliverance ministry and get those spirits casted out and be free.

9. PRAY & RENEW YOUR MIND

Pray without ceasing and fervently. Pray continuously and persistently. Pray and pray and keep on praying. Pray against witchcraft, divination, sorcery, Santeria, juju, white magic, black magic, voo doo, spirits of the underworld etc. Renew your mind daily with what God’s word says. It’s not about what the internet and doctors say about disorders and illnesses. It’s not about what you feel, it’s about what God’s word says.

CONCLUSION

Although in this blogpost I am choosing God over the medical field. Jesus was all about balance, not extremes. I believe as Christians we shouldn’t be so spiritual that we are no earthly good. Humans are a composition of soul, body and spirit, so of course therapy matters to address the emotions and cater to the body. I believe therapy and Jesus should always go together, one shouldn’t be neglected or substituted for the other. Venting and talking about things and releasing is very important. Therapy will help with overcoming emotional repression. I’m not too much of a fan of Psychology though, because I believe its goal is to just give you mind blowing concepts with big jargon, but ultimately no satisfying solution. In a sense Psychology opposes God’s word. It seeks to make you a victim forever, but God said you are a victor and a conqueror, not a victim. The victim mentality is the one that fuels bitterness in people. Pyschology fosters unforgiveness and bitterness through concepts of “no contact”. Psychology points to humans as a solution to humanity’s brokenness, not God, but nobody can fix and patch up broken things more than it’s original creator. I see Satan in a lot of Psychology, Philosophy etc concepts. Unless you go to a solid Christian therapist, then you are better off not going, because a secular therapist will be used by the devil to foster your unbelief. A therapy session with an unbeliever therapist is 100 a session (just an example), the precious blood of Jesus is free. You do not counsel demons, you tell them to leave.

If a potter would make something and give it to you, then overtime you break it really bad. Who would be the best person to take that pottery to? The one who made it obviously. Because he would be able to not just fix it, but give you a new one if it’s too broken. God is your creator and there is nothing about you that he can’t fix. Science calls it disorders, God calls it demonic torment, the devil doesn’t care what you call it as long as he makes you suffer and ultimately kills you through an untimely death, because of pain and hopelessness. Disordered people are merely broken people, that can be made whole by their creator.

Narcissistic personality disorder and all other disorders are believed to have no long-term cure. CBT, DBT and EDMR therapy have all been tried and they haven’t worked effectively. When it comes to pills and disorders, the devil uses them as a placebo effect. The devil obviously loves to play mind games. He will show you temporary improvement sometimes, as long as he can torment you all your life and God is not declared Jehovah Rapha, then it’s all good by him. Some people died untimely deaths, because Jezebel is in full control of the pharmaceutical industry administering drugs to people, when she fully knows their illnesses are spiritually based. We must be careful of the drugs we take and use discernment, because some sorcerers have admitted to using “mind regulating” drugs to summon spirits and cast spells and curses . Jesus didn’t die so that you would just “get by”. He didn’t die so that you would drink sleeping pills and drown yourself in alcohol, so you can avoid your reality. He didn’t die so that you would have destructive coping mechanisms. Jesus Christ died so that you would live life in abundance.

“Those who have their minds on me I will keep them in perfect peace” – Isaiah 26:3

SCIENCE: There is no cure for narcissistic personality disorder. It would go against the disorder itself to realise there is something wrong with them, because they think they are perfect.

GOD: Your lifestyle will take you to a crisis and rock bottom one day. When that happens choose Jesus and be free. Or be unrepentant and stay on the path of destruction and perish.

SCIENCE: DISORDERS HAVE NO CURE

GOD: “WITH MAN THIS IS IMPOSSIBLE, BUT WITH GOD ALL THINGS ARE POSSIBLE” (Matthew 19:26)

If you are going through a self deliverance process. These instructions are not enough, there are just an overview and touch the basics. Please ask the Holy Spirit to lead you concerning what steps you need to take. Or if you need specific directions, please email me or reach out to me on instagram. A deliverance process will never be the same for everyone, the steps are based on the person’s past, family battles, personal sins etc.

God Bless You
