How, you ask? By simply addressing the roots of your life, health and relationship issues. That's what this Web site is about. It's about helping Christians live the abundant life you're entitled to. Because hurting people continue to hurt people, this site provides resources, services and products for Healed People to Heal People.

Life If you address the symptoms of your life, health and relationship issues, they will continue. That's why we prefer to identify the roots, then dismantle them according to biblical principles. Then, the symptoms will eventually go away.

Health Do you know one of the most preferred ways to distract a person? It is to inflict pain, illness or addictions in your physical body. This includes mental illnesses. That's why you’ll find information and products about health, the human body and what the Bible has to say about disease and illness on this site. Inclusive is life-changing information about the biblical roots of disease and illness. Be In Health Global owns this information and is gracious enough to allow it to be shared on this site.

Relationships My goodness, every day we have the opportunity to improve our relationships. The question is do we have the desire, the mental capacity and the willingness to give it another try. The other question is since what we've tried hasn't worked to improve our relationships, what should we do differently? Might we suggest learning how to identify the roots behind the issue -- that is what you can't see with the natural eye.

How We at Healed People, Heal People facilitate the healing process by offering personal ministry, group ministry, consulting, educational teachings and training. Our training was at Restoring The Foundations International, Be In Health Global and Pure Herbs Ltd.

Roots How do we identify the roots of life, health or relationship issues? First, we asses what happened generationally in your life and family; this contributes to your issue. Second, we present what you really believe about yourself, what you really believe about others and what you really believe about God that does not align with the truth of the Bible; this contributes to your issue. And please know that most people rarely know what beliefs they operate out of daily that is contributing to them being trapped in the same life, health and relationship issues. Next, you need to receive healing for who and what has caused pain in your life; this keeps your issue in place.

Joy We've had the privilege of seeing the Holy Spirit positively change lives on every continent using simple, biblical healing and deliverance. Be encouraged to browse the site to participate in the forums, listen to healing music or consider supporting this marketplace ministry. Your life, health, and relationships and can change for the better!

    I walked another three miles this evening with my cross training instructor after class. One thing I shared with him is that if a person is breathing, they have some issues to be dealt with, especially if they've never had any healing and deliverance. Earlier today I was asked to explain what the integrated approach to biblical healing and deliverance is.

    Let me see if I can explain it in simple terms. A lot of times, we deal with our symptoms and not the root of the issues on our lives. Most people's entire thinking process, including society, is geared toward symptoms.

    For example, if a person has a gall bladder problem, doctors take out the gall bladder. Well the root of most gall or kidney problems originate in the liver, but doctors don't address it in most cases. Now, I am not a physician and know that, so I know MDs know that. Or the better question is, why don't they go to the root of the issue?

    Now, allow me to shift to a common family dynamic. Many of us have one person, if not several people, in our families who are addicted to drugs. Normally, our family members’ make comments like, he/she ought to know better; I don't know why he/she won't fulfill his /her responsibilities.

    My dear, beloved people of God, those are all symptoms. I remain quiet when I hear comments like these because my interest is in only dealing with eradicating, putting an axe spiritually to the root of the issue. That way, the symptoms are forced to die.

    In simple terms, that's what integrated, biblical healing and deliverance looks like. We deal with the root(s) of an issue on all levels -- historically, cognitively, legally, emotionally and spiritually -- and it must die.

    I'll tell you this, this has changed my life. The Lord has allowed me some great opportunities in my life. But as the scriptures say clearly, only what we do for Christ will last.

    I've seen the Holy Spirit heal and deliver people before my eyes and He's used me as a tool. The school I was trained at was an international training center that specializes in the integrated approach to healing and deliverance. I wouldn't trade the experience for anything. The qualified teams in the Healing House Network have provided ministry to people, churches and businesses all over the world.

    You name a profession, and we've had someone come.
    You name a level of society, and they've come.
    You name a status level, and they've come.
    You name a denomination, and they've come.
    You name any problem or issue, and many have come.
    You name any case of hopelessness, and many have come.
    You name any stronghold or addiction that's gripped a person's life, and the people have come.
    You name a secret that people have lived with for decades, and those people have come.

    I will never look at any human being the same.

    Another beauty about the integrated approach to biblical healing and deliverance is that the green light comes on for people. Now what do I mean by that? You know how we all have wondered things about ourselves, our own families and about other people. You know that why, those searching questions that just never seem to get answered.

    In the ministry room, the Holy Spirit shows us and we show the person coming for ministry the strategy satan [really the demons dispatched and assigned to the person's life] has used to steal, kill and destroy them in their life. There's nothing like when we see that the green light comes on for a person.

    So, what does this mean? It means satan's strategy is exposed, and the freeing process begins. Now, how satan trips people up, many times for decades, is he [really the demonic assigned to the person's life] makes the person think: a) something is really wrong with me; or, b) I'm so ashamed I can't let anybody know; or, c) I have to keep this hidden; or d) I'm the only one, I am flawed in this area.

    They are all lies, my dear beloved people of God.
    And you know who the father of lies is, yes satan.
    I tell you, I tell people satan seriously has a low intelligence quota.
    It's sad and even simple, but it's true.

    Remember I started this blog off by sharing I walked another three miles with my cross training instructor after class. Well, he asked the ultimate question. "So yall just do the inner healing stuff right?" I looked at him out of the corner of my right eye as sweat is drenching down my face and already-soaked t-shirt, and I answered, we do "healing."

    Let's think about it people. What did Jesus do the majority of the time here on earth, heal. Does the Bible not clearly say that we, His dearly beloved, will do even greater things than Him. So yes, absolutely, we've seen the Holy Spirit heal people of many physical issues/illnesses/pains when they came for integrated, biblical healing and deliverance ministry. You can imagine the look my instructor gave me. His eyes said it all as he towered above me in height.

    Now, my two degrees are in business and my career has been spent in the business arena both nationally and internationally. The Holy Spirit simply amazes me every week. Do you know these same revelatory biblical principles that integrated healing and deliverance teams apply to people are also applied to businesses?

    It’s very simple and makes sense. Businesses are made up of people, right. People bring there personal, life issues to work and companies have to deal with them. They prohibit productivity. How do they affect work?

    Well, we know about employee theft, we know about office affairs, we know about manipulation, we know about lying, we know about greed, we know about injustice, we know about sexism, we know about racism, we know about the glass ceiling, we know about substance abuse, we know about overweight people, we know about employees who just aren’t motivated, we know about people going through divorces at work, we know about unethical people, we know about favoritism, we all know about the inevitable bosom buddy called stress.

    Well, Beloved reader, every single thing listed above, plus many other things I didn’t name all have spiritual roots. It will not take long to show this to you. So, can you connect the dots to see how having a person or people within companies go through healing and deliverance can significantly impact the workplace. And this is not a temporary fix either.

    We have case studies [we call them testimonies in the body of Christ] of believers who have applied this to their businesses and companies, and the Holy Spirit has turned departments, business units and companies around. I’m not pulling your leg here.

    As in the business world, these same biblical principles are applied to help businesses and organizations Transform Their Business.

    I had an unconventional business meeting late yesterday afternoon. There person and I had been trying to connect for some weeks, but you know how the schedule thing goes. So I asked the person would they be willing to try one of my unconventional meetings, and the person said yes. We did a walking meeting.

    Two things were achieved. We exercised and completed our business. At the close of the walking meeting, the person asked, “How long did we walk?” I looked at my pedometer on the right side of my waist and replied, “7.25 miles.” There was silence by the other person.

    One non-business thing I shared was it’s extremely difficult to identity Christians from non-Christians on any day of any week of any hour. We Christians have chosen so many times to blend in, we are now hardly, if at all, identifiable. Thus, there goes our salt, our savor, our ability to draw the unsaved. So, what are we going to do? Will we continue to choose to operate daily with no power?

    II Timothy 1:7 paraphrased reads, For God gives you a spirit of power.

    Are you a Christian who chooses to remain politically correct in your neighborhood – a primary place to be a light?

    Are you a Christian who chooses to remain quiet at work repeatedly when others choose to be vocal repeatedly in sharing non-Christian values?

    Are you a Christian who chooses to be too busy daily to learn 1 thing by studying in the Bible?

    Are you a Christian who chooses to remain passive by not signing petitions that will uphold Christian values in our communities?

    Are you a Christian who continues to choose to mismanage His time He allows you each day, which directly affects His kingdom business being achieved in your family, your church, your relationships, and your spheres of influence?

    As Christians [who do not have children] and as Christians parents, it is our responsibility to provide safe boundaries and safe environments for our children and the children in your local church body.

    John 10:10 paraphrased reads, The thief comes to steal, and to kill, and to destroy your children.

    How does satan plan to steal, kill and destroy your children?

    One way he strategizes on YOUR children in your home and the children in your church is he looks for open gates.

    Two open gate he, satan, commonly uses are the eye gates and the ear gates of your children and the children in your church.

    Taking YOUR children to see the new Harry Potter movie is a very sly, entertaining, deceptive way you can introduce your children in your home, in your community and in your church to the occult, which is directly controlled by the demonic. And the demonic is directly controlled by satan.

    Many of you know that I’m certified in integrated, biblical healing and deliverance. It is my heart’s desire and my colleagues desire around the world who labor in integrated, biblical healing and deliverance to see less parents before us who weep and wail over their children.

    One way we can see fewer parents pained over our children, is for parents to make better, educated, Christian choices early and repeatedly in the lives of your children and the children in your church.

    John 10:10 paraphrased reads, I come that you might have life more abundantly.

    Beloved reader, may I share two ways I employ as a Christian to live the more abundant life I’m entitled too.

    One, I choose to live life on the offense daily.

    And two, I choose to not willingly open gates in my life to invite the demonic, which are directly controlled by satan.

    As a Christian, you are aware of the biblical fact that demons are active 24-hours a day just as the Holy Spirit is.

    You are aware that Christ can be everywhere at the same time.
    You are aware that satan cannot be everywhere at the same time.
    You are aware that since satan imitates Christ, his substitute for being everywhere at the same time is his minute-by-minute use of demons.
    He dispatches his demons and specifically assigns them to you, your children, your family, your community, your church, your company, your institutions and your city.

    Would you consider, please beloved reader, not willingly opening the door to the occult in YOUR children’s lives in your home and in your church by taking them to see the new Harry Potter movie?

    Consider, please, setting a precedence and planting a seed in the mind of your child(ren) and the children in your church of how to make godly decisions. After all, as a Christian parent you are responsible for training them up in the Lord. If you’d like them to make godly decisions later, they are watching you and learning how you make godly decisions for them as a child(ren).

    Please read the two movie reviews below, beloved reader. Every time there is a reference to the occult, I’ve inserted the word [occult] in the appropriate place.

    Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince – movie review no. 1
    What Parents Need to Know
    www.CommonSenseMedia.org

    Parents need to know that this is no PG movie -- in all ways, it's very similar to the previous two movies, which were rated PG-13. This film continues the series' trend toward darker [occult] , more intense material. For young children, the death of a major beloved character could be extremely upsetting. Other characters are bloodied, kicked, and cursed in frightening [occult] ways, and a very scary scene involving scary, skeletal [occult] characters is sure to scare the pants off of little kids.

    There are also some big emotional upheavals and scary [occult] attacks. And there's notably more [premarital] sexuality -- albeit playfully [plants seeds of sexual immorality in your children’s minds to premarital sex and seeds do grow] depicted -- than in the past movies. Because the characters are now teens, much of the interaction between them and their friends centers on getting a boy or girlfriend, and there's plenty of [premarital] snogging [making out]. While Harry and his friends continue as strong positive role models, other characters' motives and plans become more ambiguous.

    And there are also a few scenes that include alcohol consumption [plants seeds in your child’s mind, please consider if there are generationally any alcohol drinkers on either side of your family] -- including one in which a professor serves his students [person in both and authoritative and leadership position leading children, students to engage in alcohol, it is no coincidence that liquor stores advertise signage that read SPIRITS, and this is not the spirit of the Lords, notice the word spirits is plural with an S] .

    Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince – movie review no. 2

    By Christa Banister, Crosswalk.com Contributing Writer

    Cautions

    Drugs/alcohol: Harry, Hermoine and Ron drink butter beer.

    Language/profanity: A few uses of mild profanity including “hell,” “damn” and “piss off.”

    Sex/nudity: Romance is definitely on the brain in Hogwarts this time around. There are a few kisses between different teen couples, but nothing more.

    Violence: “Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince” has an even darker [occult] tone than any of the other “Potter” movies to date. And the first scene definitely sets the pace when the Millennium Bridge is destroyed and several civilians are thrown off. A couple of fights break out between Harry and Draco, and their faces are bloodied.

    There are violent exchanges between the Weasleys and the Death Eaters, and more precarious spells [occult] are concocted than ever before, especially when one of Harry’s classmates is possessed [occult] and nearly dies. The last 20 minutes are the most violent and action-packed of them all when Dumbledore and Harry make their way to the cave. What eventually goes down is different than what actually happens in the books, so I won’t spoil it here.

    Be forewarned, however, this isn’t stuff for younger children, despite the PG rating.

    Please consider printing this article and doing one or several of the following.

    1) Give a copy of this to people in leadership at your church.

    Psalm 118:8

    It is better to trust in the Lord, than to put confidence in man. Help me sweet Jesus to write this article. Okay, beloved readers, a part of this Healed People, Heal People community. Why am I stammering at the keys on my keyboard today? The Holy Spirit taught me a lesson about 10 years ago that I will never forget. It’s about s-o-m-e people, good people, Christian people, loving people, those who love you, those who surround you on a regular basis, or those who may even be in your corner.

    Psalm 118:8 declares it's better to trust in the Lord, than to put confidence in man.

    Okay, here goes.

    We all have churches that are headed by pastors and leadership teams.

    We all have family members, some of which we love, some we don’t care for too much – and some we just can’t stand [sorry, but it’s a reality for some].

    We all have confidantes.

    We all have those fun-to-hang-out with partners.

    We all have those let-your-hair-down with friends.

    We all have those kicking-it with buddies.

    And we even have those select Christian people we like being around who will not check us when we are clearly stepping outside of the boundaries and principles of the Lord.

    We even have accountability people -- we still have a choice in how much we disclose to them.

    We all had or have secrets, some are not-so-big secrets, some are closet secrets, some are in-the-dark secrets, some are go-to-your-grave secrets, some secrets just cripple the hell out of you.

    You decide what you do with your secrets. I can tell you this, the Lord never intended for us to carry the internal weight of the secrets. Many of our illnesses come from keeping secrets. Some of our constant mind racing comes from not being able to still the secrets.

    Much of depression spurs from buckling secrets that people try to keep the lid shut down on. Many of your spiraling urges come from trying to holster your secrets. Many things we do to escape, including sleep, is to not deal with the harshness of our reality -- the secrets, the impending, unnecessary, illegitimate weights.

    We all have those ride-and-die friends – no matter what, these friends will be there for us. Make no mistake about it, this is an extremely short of list people – it may even be one person – it may only be the Lord Himself.

    But, beloved readers, you know what our Lord taught me 10 years ago that I’ve n-e-v-e-r forgotten?

    Don't ever put anyone's word, advice, counsel, approval, consent, guidance or direction above what I say, says the Lord.

    This was a very hard lesson for me to learn and live by.

    Why?

    Because some of those Christians who loved me, then, and still love me, now, gave me advice, counsel, guidance – that didn’t line up with the Word of God.

    Did they love the Lord and do they love the Lord? Yes, these Christians did and do love the Lord.

    Did I own a Bible? Yes, I did own a Bible, then, and; yes, I do own several Bibles now.

    Did I know the Word? Yes, I knew the Word and; yes, I know even more Word now.

    Did a little flicker go off inside of me when these loving Christians told me what I wanted to hear? Yes, the Holy Spirit pushed that flicker button inside of me. But, I knew what some of the loving Christians said to me over the years did not line up with the Word. [I'm not being sarcastic when I use the words loving Christians; I'm sincere.]

    They padded their advice, lined their counsel and justified it with scripture – I think the Bible calls this itching ears, on my part. And let's mention this, there are a lot of Christians, even Christians in leadership positions, who are so wounded they believe life's experiences more than they believe the Word of God. And accordingly, they give advice, counsel, approval, direction based on experience. It's your responsibility to know the Word for your life. It's your responsibility to know when scriptures are being misaligned.

    Now, what each of us reading this article knows, is that we tell people, even Christians exactly what we want them to know. An ole' pastor once told me, it’s just human nature to do this – tell folk o-n-l-y what you want them to know.

    Beloved reader, do you disclose every single, slither of information to the people you’re seeking input from? I’ll leave that for you to answer.

    I always flinch, in particular, when Christians say, “Follow your heart.”

    Excuse me, beloved readers, I am not trying to be disrespectful, but that statement above is just plain dumb.

    “Follow your heart.”

    Do you know when I graduated from undergrad, I did a Bible study for two years just dealing with the different conditions of the human Christian heart.

    You know what’s an even better question, beloved reader, Do you know what’s in your heart?

    If so, how do you know what's in your heart? What have you done about the contents of your heart?

    How often do you inspect your heart?

    How often do you present your heart to the Holy Spirit?

    Do you know what to do once the Holy Spirit has revealed the contents of your heart?

    Well – I offer several versions of the scripture below.

    Jeremiah 17:9 [NIV]
    The heart is deceitful above all things and beyond cure. Who can understand it?

    Jeremiah 17:9 [NASB]
    The heart is more deceitful than all else, And is desperately sick; Who can understand it?

    Jeremiah 17:9 [KJB]
    The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

    Jeremiah 17:9 [AKJV]
    The heart is deceitful above all things, and desperately wicked: who can know it?

    Jeremiah 17:9 [ASV]
    The heart is deceitful above all things, and it is exceedingly corrupt: who can know it?

    Jeremiah 17:9 [Bible in Basic English]
    The heart is a twisted thing, not to be searched out by man: who is able to have knowledge of it?

    So, beloved reader, help me understand again why so many people, especially Christians, throw out the statement so casually, “Follow your heart,” or “I just follow my heart.”

    I’m choosing to believe based on the Word of God and based on my experience in integrated healing and deliverance and based on the experience of veterans in the ministry of integrated healing and deliverance – that people, Christians, are simply making this statement, “follow your heart,” out of ignorance.

    I used to wrestle with the following questions when I really respected and esteemed some Christians who gave me counsel. Now keep in mind these were internal thoughts I had in my mind about these Christians. I am still in relationship with the majority of these Christians.

    Thoughts I had after receiving advice, counsel, direction from some respected Christians

    - but, look at their position in the community, they are so visible
    - but, look at how much they study the Word of God
    - but, look at their leadership position in the church
    - but, look at how much influence they have
    - wow, I really need to stay in their good graces, they can help me
    - but, they seem to be pretty close to the Lord, do what they say
    - I know they wouldn’t tell me wrong, I’ll do what they say
    - but, look at their walk with the Lord [what’s visible to me]

    Beloved reader, what I have painfully learned from our Lord is this scripture, It is better to trust in the Lord, than to put confidence in man. Psalm 118:8

    Why do I use the phrase painfully learned? Because I had to go around the darn mountain over and over – I sound like the Israelites, right? The first time I realized the advice from the respected, respective Christians landed me in hot water, why didn’t I confess to the Holy Spirit, I’m sorry for not listening to Your whisper in my ear.”

    Each time, beloved reader, I remember the Holy Spirit placing that little flicker inside of me saying, ”That’s not the way to go;” “Don’t ignore Me.” But I yielded again and again, beloved reader, because I respected Christian people more than I esteemed the Word of God. These respective, respected Christians said what I wanted to hear and what they said aligned with my desires, my will -- a recipe for impending disaster.

    Now, in Psalm 118:8 the end of the scripture says, … than to put confidence in man.

    Well, who is man?
    Man is any human being breathing who is in your life, male or female.
    Man is any human being, Christian or non-Christian.
    Man is any human being in any income level.
    Man is any human being on any status level.
    Man is any human being in every rank of the Christian church.
    Man is any human being in your family.
    Man is any human being who is your friend.

    The beginning of Psalm 118:8 says It is better to trust in the Lord …

    Yall, I’m literally b-e-g-g-i-n-g you, trust the Lord.
    If you don’t know how to trust Him, just tell Him, He already knows.
    If you’re scared to trust Him in an area of your life, just tell Him, He already knows.
    Wherever you’re deficient in trust, ask Him to build that in you for you since you’re not able to do so.
    If you’ve not dealt with the issues preventing you from trusting the Lord, would you consider asking the Holy Spirit to reveal these things to you.
    Would you consider receiving ministry for integrated approach to healing and deliverance for these issues?
    Why?
    So, you can experience freedom in this or these areas of your life.

    Don’t have itching ears like I did; ask the Holy Spirit to remove your itching ears.
    The Holy Spirit knows that we all have desires and dreams and wills.
    He truly has better plans for us than we’re able to muster up for ourselves.
    His plans for you don’t even involve manipulation and maneuvering and dodging.

    Yall, I guess by now, you know I’m a born and breed [USA] southerner – that’s fine.
    Let's ask the Holy Spirit to reveal our spiritual blind spots.
    Let's ask the Holy Spirit to reveal the areas of our lives we’re in denial about.
    Let's ask the Holy Spirit to reveal areas in our lives where there may be self hatred.
    Then when He reveals, please, please, take action to do something about it.
    If you don’t know what to do, I’m willing to find a resource to help you, if I can’t.

    Yall, I understand that you may not disclose everything to people, but please, don’t lie to yourself. You desire the abundant life the Lord speaks of so often in scripture, right? Well, the abundant life is short circuited when we choose to do the following things:

    - pretend you don’t know the Holy Spirit is nudging you
    - cut corners to try to get what you want
    - only disclose so much information and purposely conceal other pertinent information to those you seek counsel from
    - you choose to turn a deaf ear to the Holy Spirit
    - you choose to forget that some blessings and some promises of the Lord are conditional; Have you met the
    condition(s) without compromising?
    - wrongly use scripture, people, situations, [conditional] prophecy to justify something you want
    Please remember that satan and his demons have strategy too for your life.
    And his strategy is presented very nicely, not in a questionable fashion.

    Whatever word, advice, counsel, approval, consent, guidance or direction you receive, even from Christians, put it before the Lord, please, before moving forward. And wait for His confirmation or His denial and His instructions.

    Now, let me share this with you. I know the respective Christians throughout the years didn’t provide advice to hurt me on purpose. Although we’re Christians, we are humans. We have good days. We have days when we’re not as sharp, when we’re not on point. Well-meaning, God-loving Christians have been and can be used strategically by demonic in your life -- even without them knowing it and you knowing it.

    We all recall when Jesus spoke to Peter in Matthew 16:23. Jesus was very aware that the demonic was working through Peter. Yes Peter, a man who literally was chosen and walked with Jesus. I'll keep this brief by simply asking these questions. Are your spiritual tools keen enough to discern when God-fearing Christians are off kilter who give you advice?

    Do you even know what your spiritual tools are? What do you do to improve your spiritual tools? How often do you use your spiritual tools? Spiritual tools are similar to the physical muscles in your body. They becomes stronger the more you exercise them and use them on a regular basis. Spiritual tools become stronger they more they are stretched out of their comfort zone.

    People ask me and you for advice in areas that we may be weak in. When you realize that a person is asking you for advice in an area you're weak in, do you disclose that this is one of your weak areas, up front? Do you or have you chosen to do what's in the best interest of the person by stopping the conversation and sharing in integrity that this isn't an area you're strong enough and disciplined enough to provide counsel, advice, consent, approval, direction or guidance.

    You and I ask people for advice in areas that they are weak in, but we don’t know that because they don’t disclose it [the majority of the time]. And even when we see -- through people’s repeated actions that they’re weak in certain areas, we sometimes still choose to seek their advice, their counsel.

    This is not wise, beloved reader. So this begs the question, why do we ask them? Because they’ll tell us what we want to hear. This is a clear sign of spiritual immaturity and/or lack of exercising godly wisdom in this particular area of your life.

    Psalm 118:8 reads, It is better to trust in the Lord, than to put confidence in man. Please do not esteem man, woman or Christians words higher than the Word of God for your life, please.

    DSK.| Herb no. 1 for degenerative discs


    Between the vertebrae [neck and back bones] there rests a disc-shaped structure that could be described as a tough, fibrous, elastic, shock absorber pad made essentially of protein with a gelatinous fluid-filled center. This makes it possible to walk without discomfort and also be able to bend the back and neck easily. Since we normally walk on our hind two appendages [legs] and not the front two [arms], we support the entire upper body on a column of bone, in the lower back especially. If we do not maintain our protein intake properly and or put too much stress on the discs and or gain too much weight, they can deteriorate or rupture. This brings bone into contact with bone and great discomfort results.


    The DSK. combination of herbs is composed especially of Knitbone, a type of body glue and rapid repair herb, assisted by Valerian Root, a pain reliever, Papaya fruit, which contains a digestaid, papain, to digest out any damaged material that can not be repaired and Willow bark to relieve pain and inflammation. The Willow Bark and Valerian portions of DSK allow the sufferer to, at least, get some rest due to to their relaxing and pain relieving qualities.

    DSK is a combination herb made of the following Pure Herbs: knitbone, valerian root, papaya fruit and willow bark.


    Dose | Internally, 40 to 80 drops, 3 to 4 times per day and externally, apply in quantity needed to cover the area. If trouble sleeping, then 80 drops to 1 tsp. internally, and apply liberally to the distressed area. For more involved conditions also do as follows.

    Note | In cases where serious damage must be repaired, a more elaborate and quicker approach can be taken. Make an application to area to be repaired in the manner described here. Apply to the area: Vitamin E with Selenium from 100 i.u. capsules to make oxygen more efficient in the repair process; Oil of Cajeput as a decongestant and pain reliever; and Herbal Adjustment to increase circulation and release muscle spasms.

     

    Then place a single layer of cheese cloth or absorbent gauze saturated with DSK. over the area. Cover this with plastic sandwich wrap, fix in place and leave on overnight. In the morning, remove the application and discard it. Wash the area and allow to dry. Prepare and apply a fresh daytime application like the one for the night. Repeat this regimen until repaired.

    Big Five | Herb no. 2 for degenerative discs


    Repair and relief of pain for back, neck, joints and headaches. Sports activities, accidents, injuries, sports injuries, massage therapy work, arthritic and sore joint problems. Swollen discs, seizures, folk remedy for diseases described as M.S., M.D. and Lou Gehrig's disease. Release of tension in area before massage therapy or chiropractic adjustment and benefits last longer.

    Big Five is a combination herb made of the following Pure Herbs: arnica, B.& N.C.-W [brain and nerve cocktail], Herbal Adjustment, Ol' Number 11 [Old Number 11] and Rue.


    To order Big Five, click here.


    Big Five Addendum | The object of this formula is to have a powerful, premixed herbal formula for relief and repair of back, neck, joint and headache problems. External applications are made to the areas in trouble. Arnica removes the physical shock to the nervous system which allows healing to take place and prevents further trauma.

     

    The Brain & Nerve Cocktail portion of the formula provides nourishment for the glands in the brain, the pituitary, pineal, hypothalmus, the brain itself, and the involuntary nervous system of the body. Herbal Adjustment is a combination of herbs which promotes better circulation and releases spasticities. This promotes rapid repair and relief of pain. Ol' Number 11 is an excellent tried-and-true repair combination for any bone, flesh or cartilage structure in the body. Rue is a specific for sore muscles and injured joints.


    Caution | Rue may bring on the menstrual flow, and as such it is not advisable to use if pregnant or if pregnancy is desired. Formula Four can be used in place of Big Five as it does not contain Rue. This multi-combination is a formula that incorporates many functions into one application, each of which has proven its function separately.

     

    Together, they make a powerful tool in the hands of a person for repair and relief of pain. Apply to the spine, from the tip of the tailbone up the spine [the width of the hand] on to the neck and on the scalp to the top of the head. Additionally, around the ears, down the neck and out to the shoulders, and on the temples and forehead. Do not apply to underarms, private areas or get in eyes.

     

    No permanent damage has been known to occur, but if the person does not know this, they may panic, as the formula produces the sensation of great heat. If an accident occurs, remain calm and flush with water. Peace will return again soon. This same procedure can also be used for correcting headaches.

     

    After application of the *Big Five, also apply either Peppermint Oil or Oil of Cajeput to complete the pain relieving, corrective procedure. In the area where the injury has occurred or physical shock of the nervous system has occurred there may be an increased sensation of heat. Thus, the problem area is especially benefited. The effects of the combination usually last for at least 3-4 hours.

    Directions for use | *External application only. Repeat as needed, one to three times per day for relief of pain and then daily until healed. In conditions described as seizures, M.S., M.D. and Lou Gehrig's disease, after application of Oil of Cajeput or Peppermint Oil, apply peanut oil to the spine and neck, after warming first in the hand, as an insulation for the nerves. Use peanut oil, without a preservative, from the health food store and keep refrigerated after opening.

     

    A novel use of the Big Five for sports use is to put 1 oz. of the extract in a 1 pint [1/2 liter] spray bottle of distilled water, then add three drops of peppermint oil. Shake the mixture well to mix the peppermint oil with the water and extract each time before using.

     

    Spray on legs or joints before activities such as bicycling, skating or running to keep muscles from cramping and extend performance abilities. If applying the extract full strength, avoid prolonged contact with sunlight, as some individuals have rather sensitive skin and need extra protection to avoid redness or soreness occurring due to interaction with sunlight.

    * As this formula contains Arnica, which can, in rare instances be somewhat toxic to some individuals and the sensation of heat is produced by Capsicum, the precaution of external use only is applied to this combination. Oil of Cajeput and Peppermint also produce a great cooling and or burning sensation, so avoid contact to eyes, underarm or private areas as well.

    Formula Four | Herb no. 3 for degenerative discs

    Is the same as Big Five Extract, except that it does not contain the herb Rue . The herbs and herbal combinations, Herbal Adjustment, Ol' Number 11, Arnica and B.& N.C.-W form this highly effective team for external applications to the spine and neck. For best results, especially where pain is involved, apply either Oil of Cajeput or Peppermint Oil to the spine and neck and then Formula Four.

     

    Formula Four can also be carefully applied to the temples and forehead and other areas of distress. Avoid contact with eyes, underarms and private areas. No permanent damage is known to occur if there is an accident, however, if the person does not know this, panic can ensue as there is the sensation of great heat. Flushing with water helps some, but patience and time are best to restore harmony.


    Formula Four relaxes cramping and relieves many kinds of pain, including headache [Herbal Adjustment], repairs body structures [Ol' Number 11], removes trauma [physical shock] to the nervous system [Arnica] and nourishes the voluntary and involuntary nervous systems [brain and nerve cocktail].

     

    Rue is an excellent herb for the repair of sore and damaged muscles and joints. Historically, however, Rue has also been used to bring on the period, if it is suppressed. To avoid any possible complications in case of pregnancy, Rue has been excluded from Formula Four.

    Formula Four is a combination herb made of the following Pure Hebs: herbal adjustment, Ol' Number 11, arnica, B.& N.C.-W.


    Dose | Apply externally as given above and as needed.

    L.P.-W [liquid pearle]| Herb no. 4 for degenerative discs


    Arthritis and correction of circulation are closely associated. When the circulation returns, usually the arthritis goes away. L.P.-W also provides the energy for this to take place. L.P.-W is especially for frozen joints where there are waste mineral deposits in the joints or on the bones.

    L.P-W is a combination herb made of the following Pure Herbs: Angelica, Echinacea, Ginger, Marshmallow, Broad Beans, Spikenard, Eucalyptus, Gentian, Lady's Slipper, Bee Pollen, Prickly Ash and Myrrh.


    Dose | 40 to 80 drops per meal, or 3 times per day


    To order L.P.-W, click here.


    Ol' Number 11 | Herb no. 5 for degenerative discs

     

    Used to repair or strengthen any type of brain, nerve, flesh, cartilage or muscle injury or weakness. If you cannot work on the area directly, then take Ol' Number 11 internally. 40 to 80 drops, 3 times per day for repair or adding strength to the body. For severe injuries or heavy athletic training, 1 tsp. to 1 tbl., 3 to 4 times per day.

     

    Additionally, for serious injury, you can work on the area directly. One very successful procedure is as an overnight application. Apply several things directly to the area externally. Apply the herb Arnica directly to the skin of the area or around the site to get the physical shock out of the area. In this way, the injury can heal rapidly.

     

    Next, apply Vitamin E with Selenium from 100 i.u. capsules  to improve the action of oxygen for repair and to prevent irritation if very sensitive skin. At this point, apply externally, either Peppermint Oil or Oil of Cajeput and Herbal Adjustment and then Formula Four.

     

    This relieves pain and improves the circulation in the area to be repaired. Next, soak a single layer of natural fiber cheese cloth or absorbent gauze with Ol' Number 11. Wrap this cloth, soaked with Ol' Number 11, around the injured area and cover it with plastic sandwich wrap. Then, wrap a cloth around all to hold in place for overnight.

     

    The next morning, remove the application and discard. Wash the area and allow to dry. [Never reuse the application, as this thermal and moisture barrier application also draws poisons out through the skin, as well as driving the repair herbs internally.]

     

    Repeat the application procedure for the daytime. Continue with an application for the day and night until well. As an aftershave, to baby the skin and make it smooth and soft, apply a few drops of Arnica followed by a generous amount of Ol' Number 11.


    Ol' Number 11 is a combination herb made of the following Pure Herbs: white oak bark, marshmallow, mullein, mugwort, indian tobacco, scullcap, knitbone, black walnut hull and gravel root.


    Dose | For internal use, 40 to 80 drops, after meals and as given above. For external use, soak a cotton ball with Ol' Number 11 and apply to the injury 3 to 4 times per day.


    To order Ol' Number 11, click here.


    R.S.T.-C [repair of scar tissue]| Herb no. 6 for degenerative discs


    Formulated by Pat Courter and Lynn Scott. Scar tissue can form in areas of low oxygenation, and in areas that have been traumatized. Pat has come to the conclusion that when stored shock or trauma are eliminated, it helps to relieve aches and pains caused by shock and trauma. It has been said that scar tissue can form within 48 hours after injury.

     

    For the best results: take R.S.T.-C internally, and apply externally along with Arnica, on the area of the skin near or on the affected organs, muscles, nerves, ligaments, bones or vertebrae. Arnica and R.S.T.-C work great together.

    R.S.T.-C is a combination herb made of the following Pure Herbs: All Cells Salt, Chickweed, Ho Shou Wo, Skunk Cabbage and Oriental Mustard Seed.


    Dose |Internally: begin with 10 to 20 drops 2-3 times a day; gradually build up to 40-80 drops 2-3 times, a day. Externally: enough to cover the area.

    Caution | Do not exceed 80 drops three times a day of R.S.T.-C. The lymph glands carry most of the debris away and we do not want this cleansing action to occur so quickly that discomfort might result.

    Herbal Adjustment | Herb no. 7 for degenerative discs

    Is is a quick acting dramatically effective procedure for relief of headaches, leg cramps, menstrual cramping, arthritic discomfort, sports injuries, back discomfort, neck and shoulder tension, heart attacks, strokes and internal bleeding. For relief of pain and cramping two liquids are applied to the skin, one is Peppermint Oil which is cool and the second is a combination of herbs known as Herbal Adjustment, which is hot .

     

    The Peppermint oil is applied first and the Herbal Adjustment second. The procedure of using these two liquids together is called an Herbal Adjustment. In some cases, as given here, Herbal Adjustment is also taken internally and will be described individually. This procedure will not interfere with medication and will not make a person groggy. Needles and injections are not used.

    Headaches and tension | For headaches, apply first Peppermint Oil from the tip of the tailbone, up the spine, and on to the neck and the back of the head, on the scalp, and on up to the top of the head. Make the application about the width of the person's hand. Next, apply the two liquids to the temples and forehead. Have the person lean the head back so as to avoid getting any of the liquids in the eyes.

     

    Should an accident occur, flush thoroughly with water, remain calm and peace will return. Also apply to any additional areas of the head which are hurting. Finally, apply in front of and behind the ears, down the neck on both sides and out to the shoulders. This complete application will have an effect on the entire nervous system of the body. The affects are quick and relief is swift. Repeat as needed.

     

    For additional help, if needed, put 40 to 80 drops of Herbal Adjustment in a cup of water and drink it down. Do not sip as it is hot and best to get it over with as soon as possible. If a mild headache is in progress, usually an application of the two liquids to the temples, forehead and back of the neck are all that is needed for headache relief.

    Chiropractic adjustments | The Herbal Adjustment liquids penetrate quickly into troubled areas. After application the liquids at once relax the nerves and muscles, which then allows the bones to go back into their proper places and the circulation resumes its normal function. In this way oxygenation and relaxation of cramping muscle pain is alleviated.

     

    The Herbal Adjustment liquids may be applied several times in extreme conditions and then repeated as needed. Do not get into eyes, and wash hands after application. Application before a chiropractic adjustment makes for a very easy and quick adjustment. It will be noted the adjustment is speeded up and sticks [stays in place] far longer.

    Arthritic discomforts
    | For arthritic discomforts the two liquids are applied to the area as needed.

    Cramping and menstrual crampin
    g | If cramping or menstrual cramping, apply the two liquids directly to the offending area. If additional help is needed put 40 drops of the combination Herbal Adjustment in a cup of water and drink it. Herbal Adjustment will not stop a normal menstrual flow as it is a natural bleeding. Repeat as necessary.

    Heart attacks, strokes and internal bleeding | To stop a heart attack, stroke or internal bleeding put 40 to 80 drops of the Herbal Adjustment in a cup of water and drink it. Also, apply to chest and neck or area(s) of bleeding. Repeat as needed. If stress is great and a heart attack is a real possibility while you are trying to repair the heart with other herbs such as Myrrh and Mullein,
    use Herbal Adjustment to keep yourself alive during the process even if it takes months. Lives have been saved by doing this.

    Liver spots |Or age spots, as they are also called, dissolve easily with the continued daily application of Herbal Adjustment on the spots. Please consider that in some way, the body is not functioning as it should or these liver spots or waste dumps of concentrated pigment, would not have appeared in the first place.

     

    If they do occur again, then think in terms of improving overall health as needed, such as digestion and bowel elimination, to start with. Remember to follow the advice about not rubbing your eyes after application of Herbal Adjustment or bringing Herbal Adjustment into contact with private areas. If an accident, then follow the advice as given earlier in this topic.

    Skin cancers
    |It must be observed, to be truly appreciated, how the daily and persistent application of Herbal Adjustment externally to skin cancers, dries them up, causes them to fall off and leave healthy, pink skin in their place. This process can take as little as a matter of days or two weeks and, in some cases, up to six and nine months or more, but it does work.

     

    It is suspected that when Herbal Adjustment takes so long to do its job, that it is working on a problem much deeper inside the body, of long standing, and you are working on something more than just skin deep. Nevertheless, praise the Creator, it does work.

     

    Persistence is the key here, no matter what, continue the application at least once per day and for more desperate conditions, three and four times per day until results. Before you heal anything you usually have to slow the condition down and then stabilize it.

     

    Then reversal can take place. But, in the meantime, you are not getting any worse and that is a kind of victory too. Many practitioners also use Vitamin E Oil with Selenium from capsule(s) on the area first and then apply Herbal Adj. on top of that. This reduces any possible irritation and assists in repairing the area more quickly, with the prevention of any possible scar tissue.

    Sports injuries | For sports injuries such as sprains, twists, bumps, bruises, torn tendons, ligaments, etc., apply Arnica to the area to take the physical shock out of the nerves, then Peppermint Oil and then Herbal Adjustment to the area for relief of pain and to correct the circulation. Then, apply the repair formula Ol' Number 11
    to start the repair process.

     

    This is done as soon after the injury as possible. Repeat every 3 to 4 hours as needed. However, it should not be thought that this procedure will not tackle chronic and old injuries with equal determination, because it will. The night procedure for sports injuries is to open capsules of 100 i.u. of Vitamin E with Selenium and apply the oil to the injured area.

     

    Then, soak a natural fiber cheese cloth or gauze with the repair formula Ol' Number 11 and wrap the area with the cloth. The larger the wrap, the greater and quicker the affect. Wrap this then with plastic sandwich wrap, and an additional cloth wrap around this, to hold everything in place for the night. This procedure forms a thermal and moisture barrier, to drive the herbs into the area and pull poisons out, in a time-release action during the night.

     

    The herbs are driven into the body, congestion is broken up, swelling reduced and function restored. There is a two-way traffic flow here. Herbs are pushed into the body area and poisons are pulled up and sweated out of the body at the same time. The next morning remove the application and discard the herbal cloth as it is spent and contains poisons. Wash the area and allow to dry.


    Note |This process of applying an herbal tea or herbal extract to the body soaked in cloth is know as a fomentation. For the daytime, apply the herb Arnica, Peppermint Oil and Herbal Adjustment every 3-4 hours. Repeat this daytime and nighttime process until the area is repaired.

    Lower high blood pressure | To lower dangerously high blood pressure, put 40 to 80 drops of Herbal Adjustment and 40 to 80 drops of Golden Bough in a cup of water and drink it. Repeat as needed.

    Herbal Adjustment is a combination herb made of the following Pure Herbs: Black Cohosh, Blue Vervain, Capsicum, Indian Tobacco and Siberian Ginseng.


    Dose | As given in the above work. Additionally, Herbal Adjustment can be given as part of a daily herb regimen, to spark an herbal program and get it to work, at the rate of 40 drops in a cup of water, 1 - 4 times per day.

    Note |Just the Herbal Adjustment combination is put in water to make the drink. If a Peppermint tea is desired, only 1 - 2 drops of the oil to a cup of water makes a good tea.

    Chiropractic physicians
    | When the area to be adjusted is too tense for the needed procedure, Peppermint Oil and Herbal Adjustment applied to the spine, neck and shoulders rapidly relaxes the areas. Then, minimal pressure is required to achieve remarkable results.

    Massage therapists
    |Peppermint Oil and Herbal Adjustment applied to tense areas of the spine, neck, shoulder and other areas [avoid eyes, under arm and private areas] produce a warming and relaxing effect which makes therapeutic massage a very rewarding experience.

    General note
    |
    If for some reason a person should have an allergic reaction to Peppermint Oil, [if there is one, it is usually confined to temporary redness of the skin] many practitioners enjoy the use of Oil of Cajeput in its place.

    Minister G. Craige Lewis

    I listened and watched several videos videos by Minister G. Craige Lewis. Below, I've typed notes from the revelation the Holy Spirit has given him. I thank God for imparting different callings and revelation to people within the body of Christ. Enjoy and please send a link to this article to as many Christians as you can. Thank you.

    HIP HOP MUSIC -- There’s something that’s now rocking America; it’s worst than a bomb. It’s now created a bunch of young [Christian and non-Christian] people who totally defy order. The churches have now embraced it, hip hop, and the whole world is being rocked by the impact of it. The enemy started planning this demonic hip-hop strategy in the Zulu nation in Africa and even all the way back to Pharaoh. The enemy began to prepare something to catch and captivate the minds of young people to pull them straight into his own belly. This is the hip-hop culture. This means church youth [and adults] will and are beginning to worship the devil through hip hop music. It’s plain and simple. Our youth [and adults] need deliverance from this because the music and videos have created an open door into their young lives.

    Why do Christian parents allow their children to buy clothes that promote godless, perverted artists – like Sean Jean, Rocawear. Biggie Smalls, when he was living, had a group called The Junior Mafia – it was broken into three groups. Each group was called a 6. The entire junior mafia was called 666. Right before Biggie Smalls died, he was preparing to start a clothing line to be named 666. And had this come to fruition, would Christian parents have allowed their children to purchase these clothes and wear even wear them in the house of God. Of course, 666 is the mark of the beast. So what’s a simple strategy the devil uses to promote the anti-Christ agenda, he raises up superstars – like Biggie Smalls, like Beyonce, like Jay-Z.

    Russell Simmons [former husband of Kimora Lee Simmons] is the owner of Phat Farm clothing line. His house looks like a gym and in his basement he has a statute of Kali. Kali is the Indian yoga goddess of death and destruction. He prays to this statue every morning. Kali had followers that would worship her stature back in the 19th century. They sacrificed money, jewels and possessions to this goddess. When people came into the temple to worship Kali, men came into the temple to beat up whoever was worshipping Kali. They were robbers and thieves. These men would put the jewels in their mouths and hide all of the possessions they stole. These men were named thugs. Russell Simmons is pegged as a godfather of hip-hop and he worships the goddess that rules over these thugs. The word thug is synonymous to the hip-hop culture. Many people in hip-hop refer to themselves as thugs. There is a new show getting ready ready to air [at the end of 2009] about Tupac titled Thug Angel.

    These artists in the hip-hop culture begin to take on thug characteristics and conjure up and channel these very demonic spirits of the thugs back from the 19th century. [There are pictures available to compare facial expressions of body mannerisms so you can see how identical.] 50 Cent, Slim Thug, Mike Jones, Young Buck, Lil John – these guys are glorifying being thugs. This is demonic worship or familiar spirits as scripture calls it. Notice the facial expressions of these hip-hoppers [view videos on YouTube by Minister G. Craige Lewis]. In the form of entertainment, satan is using these hip-hoppers to promote the anti-Christ agenda. Yes, they even put their extravagant jewelry in their mouths, just like the thugs from the 19th century that stole from those who worshipped the idol god Kali in the temple.

    Jay-Z calls himself jehovah god. He believes he is god. He does not believe Jesus Christ is the Son of God. He believes the Black man is god. His clothing line is Rocawear. And why are Christians buying these clothes and even sporting them to church? He has an album called The Black Album and there’s a song on there that you have to play in reverse. These are the lyrics when the song is played in reverse – 666, murder, murder Jesus, 666. [The video of this song being played backwards is posted on this site for you to hear.] Yes, these are the subliminal messages Jay-Z is sending to those listening to this song. And why are Christians supporting him again? Have you noticed that hip-hop clothing is in every department store now. Wake up saints! We wonder what's wrong with our youth and young adults. We wonder why the atmosphere in our homes are not peaceful. Well -- this hip-hop music and the videos create many open doors for you, your children and young adults to invite the demonic right on in to your home, car and life.

    Remember the old song, Another One Bites The Dust. When that song was played backwards or in reverse, it said, I like to smoke marijuana. When kids were interviewed, the kids said, they just wanted to get high, they wanted to smoke weed. The kids and adults didn’t have any idea why these thoughts and urges were coming upon them. Christians, saints, believers -- there are only two forces in the world -- God who was Jesus in the flesh and satan. God who is available to us now through The Holy Spirit is omnipotent. As we know, satan can only be in one place at a time. So, what does satan do? He uses demons to do his work. He has assigned demons everywhere. To you, your family, your community, your church, your denomination, your city, your country, your institutions, your governments, your companies, your vocations, and, of course, the media, education and entertainment industries.

    The following article is property of EX Ministries' Web site. The information that Charisma did not publish!

    A few months ago we were approached by Charisma magazine to do an interview. We have been asked by several national talk shows and publications to give interviews. We always pray and proceed with caution. EX Ministries is not in the business of seeking to promote our cause or message through nationally distributed magazines, however when we were approached by Charisma, we agreed to do the article. We agreed partly because, Charisma has a reputation of being edgy and also they informed me that they were doing an article anyway, whether I agreed to the interview or not.

    So I gave them the whole story and answered their questions only after they promised that they would print exactly what I said. Further more, I found that just a year or so prior to this, they had released an issue with a very lengthy cover story on holy hip hop and its use in the black church. I hoped that they would give us the same consideration and print the information we gave them so that it would answer questions and warn others about the dangers of hip-hop.

    In the February 2007 issue, they printed the article about us, and much to my surprise, they were very reserved with editing my answers and hardly printed any thing that we addressed in our interview. Although we do not feel the article was directly negative towards our stand, we do feel that the meat of the matter was never really dealt with. I would think that this information would be important enough to discuss with as much intensity as the article they did on holy hip hop, but once again, the booty shaking, grilled mouthed, inmate mimicking, embarrassment to our race, hip hoppers, were lifted up and the truth behind hip hop was snubbed.

    Since Charisma didn’t print our interview in its original format, we decided to give you the full list of questions and answers uncut and unedited, as I corresponded with their journalist. This is the information that the 700 Club, Gospel Today, Charisma, and many others will not print for whatever reason.


    Charisma Magazine Artical Uncut

    JB of Charisma Magazine -What is the goal of your DVD series The Truth Behind Hip Hop?

    G. Craige Lewis - Actually, we have no goals for the DVD because we never pursued or planned to record a DVD. One of the most dangerous things that I believe has infected the body of Christ is self-promotion. Yet, this is what most pastors or traveling evangelist are told they must do to get the word out. If the word they were trying to get out was their own then promoting it would be fine. However, if its God’s Word then I believe that God is responsible to promote it. The Truth Behind Hip-Hop is definitely an example of that. The series came about as a result of my traveling and preaching The Truth Behind Hip Hop for two years prior to the DVD. The 1st DVD was recorded in 2002 at the request of a ministry in my area. Initially, I turned them down, because I didn’t want to change the way God was getting the message out. However, after I prayed, the ministry approached me again and the Lord told me to let them record it. The recording didn’t cost me a dime of my own money and besides that, we never mass-marketed it, signed a distribution deal, or tried to promote it ourselves. Yet, through word of mouth and just making them available on our site quite a few people have ordered the DVD’s. What are my goals and desires for the DVD’s? I never planned for DVD’s in the first place. Simply put, I want what God wants and that is for every believer to deny himself and follow Christ!

    JB of Charisma Magazine -Your message on secular hip-hop is clear, however, I didn't see where you offered an alternative or solution to what our young people should be listening to. Could you please explain further on this?

    G. Craige Lewis - This is dealt with in our 3rd DVD, Antichrist Superstar. We believe that God is not an alternative! He should never be put in the position to replace something that should have never been there in the first place. Consider this, a young person is saved and delivered from an addiction to drugs and the church gives them holy drugs as an alternative? This is absurd. Yet this what so-called holy-hip-hoppers are doing. That young person doesn’t need an alternative drug; the drugs should have never been in their lives in the first place. We teach young people that Jesus Christ is the WAY! Seek him and find him and you will know then what is good and acceptable according to the unction that is within you, called the anointing! We are here to push people into the face of God not by offering replacements, but rather using the written word of God and exposing the darkness and deception that exists in their lives whether through music, or any other form of idol worship. God is first. Once you seek him, you will know in your heart what is good for your mind and soul. Some people think that I am anti-music. As a musician and former producer, I have recorded plenty of music; I have friends who record good Christian music; and according to some trends in ministry, I should be taking the bad stuff and then selling them my stuff—but God has not told me to do that. I preach the message that God has told me to preach and let the Holy Spirit, PASTORS, YOUTH PASTORS, and parents do the rest.

    JB of Charisma Magazine -What are your feelings toward the holy hip-hop movement?

    G. Craige Lewis - Holy hip hop is ridiculous. It makes no sense. It's just another tool of the enemy to make our young black males act, dress, and behave in a manner that is only beneficial to a rap star and those that profit from it. Although, these antics may be entertaining to some, to the average black man, these behaviors are roadblocks that halt their forward progress in the true culture we live in called the American culture! Dressing like gang members, wearing your hair like women, sagging your pants like inmates, and speaking broken English is, by the American standard, unacceptable behavior and will continue to be a hindrance in the future of our generation. Why would a church embrace that? Why would a church promote that? Out of desperation, many churches are resorting to holy thugs and gospel gangsta's to entertain their youth while the adults are worshipping. You see, you can't minister to teens about self-love, self-promotion, self-empowerment, and all the fluff messages that our new mega-church era is overrun with. Kids won't sit through, what I call the top-pop sermons of the neo-penecostal movement: Miracle, season, harvest, breakthrough, favor, destiny, and purpose. Only adults will chase that stuff. Kids want it real. Therefore, to keep them entertained without a true heart for their souls, you must do what is popular to them. You must mimic the world, follow the world's lead, and subscribe to the current trends and fads if you don't have a true call to minister. Therefore, the holy hip hoppers have found a way to masquerade as the answer while they sell their music and promote themselves. They sound just like the secular stuff. They look just like the secular stuff. They even listen to the secular stuff to get their sound and flavor. So, all they really do is build the desire for the kids to go out and get the real stuff but just do the imitation while at church, cause that's what is available!

    JB of Charisma Magazine -Jesus translated the gospel into terms that people could understand [i.e. parables and storytelling]. Do you feel this can be OK for our culture as well? Can hip-hop be used in this way? Why or why not? I think of it as the same as different publishing companies providing different translations of the Bible. I also think of Paul's verse that said he is all things to all men [1 Corinthians 9:22], except a backslider and unrepentant sinner, of course!

    G. Craige Lewis - First of all Jesus didn’t translate the Gospel He was the Gospel, the Gospel is the record of His life, death and resurrection. Secondly, He didn’t speak in parables so that people could understand. Ironically, it was just the opposite: He spoken in parables so that the truth would be hidden to those who thought themselves wise and prudent.

    Matt. 11:25 At that time Jesus answered and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because thou hast hid these things from the wise and prudent, and hast revealed them unto babes.

    Matt. 13:10 And the disciples came and said to Him, Why do You speak to them in parables?

    Matt. 13:11 Jesus answered them, To you it has been granted to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it has not been granted.

    Matt. 13:12 For whoever has, to him more shall be given, and he will have an abundance; but whoever does not have, even what he has shall be taken away from him.

    Matt. 13:13 Therefore I speak to them in parables; because while seeing they do not see, and while hearing they do not hear, nor do they understand.

    If anyone has seen any of our DVD’s or have ever heard me speak, they will know that we teach and preach that hip-hop is not just a genre of music. Hip-hop is a lifestyle. It is a manner of life. When a person comes to Christ He changes his lifestyle. Furthermore, hip hop's origin causes it to be useless when it comes to ministry. The word hip hop, according to the founders of the culture and the pioneers of the music art form, was first used in the clubs by the Sugar Hill Gang. Remember that song that said, hip hop, hippy to the hop, don't stop rocking ...? Well, that song was using the two words hip hop to describe women's booty's shaking to their beats in the club. Basically, in it's simplest form, hip hop means booty shaking! Your hips hop to the beats. Just look at the last twenty-years of hip-hop videos: the clothes changed, the music changed, even the lyrics changed but one thing that always remained the same is the gratuitous camera shot of girls hips hopping. We can quote “I became all things to all men …” all we want to; but I don’t think Paul ever meant that he would make the people’s booty shake to win them to Christ. Moreover, how in the world can you have holy booty shaking? Sure, the youth will come to shake their butts and throw up their hood signs, but will they be changed? We have seen millions of youth saved, set free, and delivered, and we have never used any kind of music to draw them.

    JB of Charisma Magazine - Since I have begun to research this article I have come across some interesting observations. If it is OK, I would like to explore these with you. It is said that hip-hop culture can be looked at the same as American culture. Both have their up sides and their down sides. If you showed someone from another country all the American strip clubs, bars, jails, and ghettos, perhaps they would see America in a terrible way. But if we showed that America also had churches, good will and charity organizations, sports, great universities [that is up for argument, but anyway] :-)), one would see American in a more realistic light. It has been said that the hip-hop culture is also the same way. The bad is very bad, but there are very positive things that come out of the culture -- creativity, holy hip-hop, political voice, a point of connection to express and release the pain of this generation. How do you feel about such comments/observations?

    G. Craige Lewis - Hip-hop is a sub-cultural movement, and cannot be compared to an ethnographic or demographic culture. A subculture is defined as a group with distinctive characteristics within a larger culture. This is why we say that hip-hop is at best, a subculture. Furthermore, its not a movement based on it's own concepts but it is a subculture that uses basic deconstruction of words and concepts to cause those that are apart of it to strive to be more visible in our present society. Initially, hip- was created out of lack and fatherless-ness. Young boys whose father's were absent began to adhere to the streets rather than abiding by the rules that govern success in society. The streets life became their expression and selling drugs, murdering, and fathering illegitimate children became their motes operandi since they had no authoritative male figures to look up to. This birthed the clothing, the language, and the social rejection that gave way for this subculture to emerge. All that we see now is a result of lack and fatherless-ness. Should we adapt to that? Or should we show a better way? Should we promote Christian gangsta's and holy thugs? Or should we teach them that the street life is not the only way there is? There is no way to compare the American culture with a street life subculture that was birthed out of rebellion and recklessness. You can't rebel against a culture that you are apart of and expect to excel in that cultures system. So, if you are not a rapper or DJ or some other occupation that is financed by the subculture of hip hop, then you won't make it in the true American culture. Rebellion will only label you an outcast or reject and cause you to be ridiculed and immobilized.

    JB of Charisma Magazine - Another thing I would like to better understand is that you mentioned that hip-hop comes from the devil and that it is satan's trick to cause people to worship him and receive his mark. Did you mean all hip-hop?

    G. Craig Lewis - Please allow me to restate your question referring to my earlier definition: Did I mean all booty-hop came from the devil? Hmmmm … ultimately yes. However, before I answer where hip-hop came from, let me clear up where it didn’t come from. Obviously, booty-hop did not come from God. I hear a lot people [mostly holy-hip-hoppers] trying to refer to hip-hop in its purest form. Referring to hip-hop as a pure form is like trying to refer to crack as a pure form. crack in itself is a hybrid of cocaine and other chemicals used to cut it. Yet the reason holy hip-hoppers try to make this quantum leap in logic, is so they can somehow say that hip-hop is a gift from God. One very popular Grammy nominated Holy-hip-hop group suggest that on judgment day God will judge us based on what we did with Hip-hop. God has nothing to do with hip-hop. The founding fathers of hip-hop all readily admit that men created hip-hop out of rebellion. So technically, man created hip-hop, but rebellion inspired it. The Bible clearly states that rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft. What spirit governs rebellion and witchcraft? The devil. So what about holy hip-hip? Surely, they distinguish themselves from the rebellious element of hip-hop don’t they? No, they can’t. Jesus said a kingdom divided against itself can’t stand. Holy hip-hoppers dress like secular hip-hoppers; behave like secular hip-hoppers [throwing up gang signs] and even listen to secular hip-hop so they can emulate them. At one of the holy hip-hop awards shows, a fight broke out east coast against west coast just like secular hip-hop.

    When most holy hip hop artists rap, they never refer to it as Holy, but just hip hop. Why is that? Because, there is only one subculture of hip hop and it is not holy! KRS-ONE, the lead prophet and spokesperson for hip hop says that Biggie was [the counterfeit] John the Baptist and Tupac Shakur was [the counterfeit] Jesus Christ and they died for our sins! He is revered and looked up to as the father of holy hip hop. He says in hip hop there are no gods and goddesses, we are the gods and goddesses! He even has T-Bone and BB Jay on his CD called Spiritually Minded, which is sold in Mardels, Family Christian, and all major Christian bookstores. He says he is a prophet and is here to teach the truth about Jesus. He says we are all Jesus Christs and should not worship him or call his name out, but be Jesus. He has Temples of hip hop all over the country and is meeting with holy hip hoppers to join together in efforts to promoting hip hop in the church! In our discussion with Ambassador of the Cross Movement, we urged him to call what he was doing Christian rap and not subscribe to hip hop culture. We asked him why couldn't he just rap for the Lord and use his ability to create rhymes for God without giving credit or props to hip hop. He said he couldn't. He is apart of the hip hop culture and would not denounce it. All rappers believe that rap is the music, but hip hop is the lifestyle or the way of life. This tells us that all hip hoppers have an agenda. Not to just rap, but to promote a rebellious way of life! Hip-hop takes what was once seen as bad and makes it good. Thugs, pimps, and gangstas was once seen as bad but hip-hop says that its good. Holy hip-hoppers are governed by this fundamental element and try to sanctify hip-hip by adding one word holy to everything. Now they say holy thugs, and gospel gangstas as if this will change the essence of hip-hop terms.

    JB of Charisma Magazine -And also, what did you mean when you later said that satan can't create anything, that he is anti-God and anti-creation? Just to clarify, it appeared that there was a contradiction in that point. Could you explain your complete thoughts on that?

    G. Craige Lewis - Satan did not create hip hop, but he used man to create it. Man has a unique ability that was not giving to satan. Man has God's attribute of creation. The devil took the music, the fatherless-ness, and the false god worship of the Zulu nation, and fused it together to form an anti-Christian movement of Hip Hop. I don't believe the devil created all the things that make up the movement, but he did mastermind the culmination of them all.

    JB of Charisma Magazine - Also, how would you respond to the argument that people may bring up from Colossians 1:16-17: For by Him all things were created that are in heaven and that are on earth, visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or principalities or powers. All things were created through Him and for Him. And He is before all things, and in Him all things consist? I have heard this text used to defend that use of hip-hop to glorify God and to win people to Christ.

    G. Craige Lewis - There is NO biblical example of music ever being used to win souls to Christ or to evangelize. Music as a unique ability to coerce your mind and physiologically causes the release of pleasure chemicals in your brain. Because of this, it's hard for a person to make a good sound decision for Christ with the emotional trappings of music involved. Their decision will be based on feeling rather than fact. I believe that this accounts for much of the schizophrenic Christianity of the modern Church. Many churches heavily use music during their altar calls and people make a decision for Christ without being soberly minded. This leads to a conversion that is based on their emotions rather than their sound judgment. When they go back to their former environment and their emotions change they turn away from God. There is no biblical account of music being listed as a fold in the five-fold ministry or used by the apostles to draw a crowd. Jesus said no man cometh unless the Spirit of God draws him. If you notice, the only people that are really pushing hip hop in the churches are those that profit from it. Since when did the resale industry's method become our model for winning souls? When I speak, we never use music and hard core gang members, pimps, whores, drug dealers, drug users, etc. have come to Christ by the thousands without hip hop or any music!

    JB of Charisma Magazine -What do you think of holy hip-hop churches and ministries?

    G. Craige Lewis - What's next? What is the church going to do to reach the red-light district? Or the strippers? Are we going to dress up like whores and start whore ministries to reach them? Are we going to dress up like pimps to reach pimps or cross dress to reach homosexuals? [Believe me, some are probably behind the scenes trying to set up these movements even as we speak.] People need the power of the Holy Ghost to change them, not our methods. These are the purpose driven churches that are really people driven! They want big numbers and large offerings, so they turn to fleshly methods and the promotion of their own ideas rather than preaching the truth of the Word of God without compromise. If the holy hip hop churches and ministries were really affective, they would be in the streets with their kind and not in some building acting street! I want all pastors and ministries that are holding on and not giving in to this perverted move of carnality by embracing this demonic sub-culture to know something. You are not alone!

    There are hundreds of thousands of churches and ministries out there that are not giving in and just because you see the mega pastors and conferences trying to push this hip hop agenda, stick with what God is telling you. There is something wrong with boys sagging their pants and tattooing their bodies. There is something wrong with girls dressing and acting like prostitutes and hookers. There is something wrong with gospel gangsters and holy thugs wearing grillz and speaking broken English. Stay true to what you know God is saying. Teach the parents and they will effectively minister to their children. Don't sideswipe their authority by bringing in the very images and lifestyles that parents and the education system of America is trying to change.

    JB of Charisma Magazine - Thank you Elder Lewis for your responses. I see in one of your answers that you asked to one of the members of Cross Movement to call their music Christian rap. It appears from this dialog that you do not have a problem with someone rapping Christian lyrics -- just not subscribing to the hip-hop lifestyle. Is this assumption correct? Also, what style of music would you say is appropriate for Christians to listen to? Or maybe you wouldn't tell someone what to listen, but how would you teach someone to choose the kind of music that truly glorifies God?

    G. Craige Lewis - I am not against rap, or any style of music, but I do not believe that Christian music should exalt the performer at all. If it's Christian, or Christ-like, it should exalt only Christ. The holy hip hoppers promote themselves all in their music because hip hop is self expressive and self serving. That is against the plan of Christ, self denial! I believe a Christian should seek God in every way possible and deny their flesh in every way possible. This includes selfish music that causes us to move in an inappropriate manner or songs that lift up people as idols and do not lift up Christ. Self denial is the root of Salvation and must be practiced as Paul said, daily. So, with our investigative estimations of the gospel music industry being over 95 percent homosexual, self worship is being promoted in music and self promotion is key in being successful as an artists. The only example of this in the Bible is Lucifer, the angel that the bible says iniquity was found in him because of his much merchandising! It also states in Ezekial that the iniquity of his traffic [self promotion] got him cast out and labeled profane.

    Apostle Of Hate — Minister Of Healing By Melanie Hemry

    Eagle Mountain International Church, Incorporated, aka Kenneth Copeland Ministries

    "Is this Johnny Lee Clary?" A voice asked on the other end of the phone.

    "Yes ..."

    "The Grand Dragon of the Ku Klux Klan for Oklahoma?"

    "That's right."

    "Mr. Clary, I'm calling on behalf of a local radio station. We would like to invite you here to the station next Sunday evening for an interview. The program will be live. During that time, we would allow you to read your literature and share your views openly."

    Share my views on the radio? There's no telling how many new kids I can recruit! Johnny leaned back in his chair and propped up his feet.

    "I'd be most honored to be your guest," he answered, a slow smile spreading across his face. Unlike most Klan members, Johnny Lee didn't shun publicity. He hadn't even minded when television cameras followed him around to schools in the Oklahoma City area, where he recruited kids. The way he looked at it, a man ought to stand up for the truth. And one thing Johnny Lee Clary knew for certain - the Ku Klux Klan stood for the truth.

    Seeds of Hatred

    His own education in that "truth" began early. He'd been only 5 when he looked out the car window in amazement. "Look, Daddy!" he'd said. "There's a chocolate-covered man!"

    His daddy blew cigar smoke out the window in disgust. "That's not a chocolate-covered man," he said. "That's a n-----. Can you say, 'n-----'?"

    Johnny Lee had leaned out the window and shouted, "N-----!" His daddy laughed and patted him on the back.

    Johnny Lee's training continued when his Uncle Harold would visit from Georgia and tell his stories about the KKK. "I shot a black man for crossing my property," he once bragged to Johnny Lee's father. "The police didn't care that I shot him. But they did fine me for firing a gun in the city limits!" The two men laughed until their faces were red.

    Johnny Lee's dad wasn't a member of the Klan. He couldn't be. He was Catholic. One group the Klan hated almost as much as blacks and Jews was Catholics. Johnny's daddy never attended Mass, but he made sure that Johnny Lee was on the Sunday school bus every week to the First Baptist Church.

    That is, until the day Johnny Lee leaned out the bus window and screamed, "N-----!" to a black child on the street. That day, Johnny Lee's Sunday school teacher pulled him aside and taught him a song. At home, he proudly sang it for his father.

    "Jesus loves the little children, all the children of the world. Red and yellow, black and white ..."

    Johnny Lee's daddy never let him go back to that church. He found one closer to home -- an all-white church.

    Everyone in their neighborhood hated Johnny Lee's family. The neighbors considered them white trash. Of course, nobody dared call them that. They were afraid to.

    The Clary family's popularity took a sudden turn, however, when a black family bought a house in the neighborhood. The whole neighborhood came to Johnny Lee's daddy and asked him to help them get rid of the family. They were willing to buy them out, if they'd leave.

    Unfortunately, the neighbors' sudden acceptance of the Clarys didn't make Johnny Lee's family any happier. His parents fought constantly. Their marriage ended tragically when, one night, 11-year-old Johnny Lee walked into a room to see his daddy holding a gun to his head. "Daddy, don't!" he screamed, then watched as his daddy shot himself to death.

    After the funeral, Johnny Lee went to live with his older sister in California. But he wasn't happy there. As the months passed, Johnny Lee became more and more lonely. That's when he saw a talk show host interviewing David Duke, the Imperial Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan. Remembering his Uncle Harold, Johnny Lee decided to contact the Klan. Within a few weeks, a man knocked at his door.

    "I'm a friend of David Duke," he said. The man sat down and talked to Johnny Lee. "What do you like? Tell me about your life."

    Johnny Lee was in awe. Someone wants to hear what I have to say!

    "Son, you've had a hard, horrible life," the man said. "What you need is a family. A real family. That's what the Ku Klux Klan is -- a fraternal order. That means family."

    Week after week, the man took Johnny Lee to his house for meetings. It was almost as if he had a father again. Between meetings, Johnny studied about the Klan. He was amazed to learn what prominent people were former Klansmen, including at least three U.S. presidents.

    Johnny Lee trembled with excitement the day he joined the KKK. He was 14 years old. By age 20, Johnny Lee had worked his way up in the organization, first serving as Duke's bodyguard and later, becoming the Grand Dragon of Oklahoma.

    "It was 1979 when I was invited to do the radio interview," Johnny Lee recalls. "I was so excited, I told everyone to tune in. Then, a few days before the interview, I was listening to the radio when they announced the upcoming debate between myself and the state president of the NAACP, the Rev. Wade Watts!

    "I'd never actually met a black man. But I knew what to expect: A man in African robes sporting a huge Afro, a button that said, 'I hate white people,' and a sign, 'Black is beautiful.'

    "I wasn't prepared for a nicely dressed, older black man carrying a worn Bible."

    On the day of the debate, Rev. Watts walked up to Johnny Lee -- his hand outstretched. "Hello, Mr. Clary. I just want to tell you I love you, and Jesus loves you."

    Stunned, Johnny Lee shook the man's hand without thinking. The physical touch of a Negro is pollution, he thought.

    "Don't worry, son," Rev. Watts said with a grin. "It doesn't rub off."

    He has a sense of humor ...?

    "Why do you feel the two races shouldn't mingle?" the interviewer asked Johnny Lee as the debate began. "Because Christ ordered it," he explained.

    "Son," Rev. Watts interrupted, "where did you get that idea?"

    The only Bible verses Johnny Lee knew were the ones outlined in the KKK literature. Speaking slowly, Johnny Lee quoted, "What fellowship hath light with darkness...."

    Rev. Watts explained that the scripture was referring to the believer and the nonbeliever, and to sin and righteousness. Then he asked Johnny Lee, "What color skin do you think an Ethiopian has?"

    "Black as the ace of spades," Johnny responded.

    "I'm glad you said that," Rev. Watts answered. "If you'll look in Numbers 12, you'll see that Moses married an Ethiopian woman. His sister, Miriam, didn't like it either. She talked against Moses and was struck with a horrible disease." He paused for a moment. "You can imagine what is going to happen to you."

    Johnny Lee shifted uncomfortably in his chair. This wasn't turning out the way he expected. "Look here," he said, "white people are smarter than black people."

    "How do you figure that?" Rev. Watts asked. Johnny Lee told him about an intelligence test that proved white children were smarter than black children.

    "What color were the men who came up with that test?" Rev. Watts asked.

    "It doesn't matter what color they were!" Johnny declared.

    "Well, then," said Rev. Watts, "if it doesn't matter, I'll give you a test right now, and we'll see if you can pass it."

    "If you think you're so smart, go ahead."

    "How long is the average cockroach?" Rev. Watts asked Johnny Lee. "Do roaches walk, or do they fly? How long does it take a mess of chitlins to cook? What are chitlins?"

    "Rev. Watts, you rigged that test," Johnny Lee fumed. "White folks aren't supposed to know that stuff."

    "Mr. Clary, now you're getting my point."

    Johnny Lee had to do something to get control of the interview. "Look," he said, trying to stay calm, "Thomas Jefferson helped pen our Constitution, and he said emphatically that the two races should never mix."

    "I'm impressed that you know so much about our forefathers, Mr. Clary. Does the name Sally Hemmings mean anything to you?"

    "No."

    "She was Thomas Jefferson's mistress," Rev. Watts said. "They had seven children. She was his personal property. His slave. She was as black as the ace of spades."

    "I'm not going to stay here and listen to any more of this!" Johnny fumed, storming out of the room.

    Johnny Lee was surprised later when he saw Rev. Watts holding a baby girl. Lifting up the child, Rev. Watts said to Johnny Lee, "This baby's parents were teenagers. Her mother was white and her daddy was black. The boy's family said they wouldn't have a white child in their home, and the girl's family said they wouldn't have a black child in their home. So I adopted her. Tia is my baby now. Mr. Clary, how can you hate this baby?"

    Johnny Lee turned to leave.

    "You can't do enough to make me hate you," Rev. Watts said to Johnny Lee. "I'm going to love you and pray for you, whether you like it or not."

    A short time later, Rev. Watts' church was burned. His family was plagued with vicious, hate-filled phone calls, and often found notes ..."KKK is watching you."

    "During the next 10 years, I gained more and more power in the Klan," Johnny Lee remembers. "Yet during those years, we never stopped persecuting Rev. Watts. The only thing that bothered me was a recurring dream I had of that baby girl. She was beautiful. And she was the only seed of doubt in my life. Somehow, it didn't seem right to hate her. It didn't seem right for her to die. But I knew the Klan's final solution included extermination of the race -- including babies.

    "I didn't let that seed of doubt hinder my work, though. When Rev. Watts joined ranks with an Oklahoma senator to make the Klan's racist hot lines illegal, my blood was boiling."

    Johnny Lee called Rev. Watts. "I know you're behind this," he said. "We're coming to get you, and we're going to beat you ..."

    "Hello, Johnny Lee! How's the family?"

    "I said we're coming for you!"

    "You don't have to come for me, I'll meet you. How about Pete's Place out on Highway 270?"

    "Uh ..."

    "Johnny Lee, they have the best home cooking you ever tasted. And apple pie that'll make you cry for more. Iced tea in those Mason jars. I can taste it now."

    "Did you hear what I said?" Johnny Lee demanded. "We're going to beat you!"

    "You be sure and bring all the boys..."

    "I said we're going to beat you!"

    "I heard you, and that's just fine. But first, I want to buy you boys dinner. Did I tell you about their potatoes?"

    Johnny Lee hung up. "What did he say?" the Klan members asked.

    "He talked about home cooking, apple pie and iced tea. Said he wanted to buy our dinner."

    "That old man's gone pure crazy," someone said. "Let's leave him alone."

    And they did.

    "During the months that followed, a girl I had dated challenged me to go to church," Johnny Lee recalls. "I decided to take her up on it, so I called an elder at Crossroads Cathedral in Oklahoma City. He met with me, and led me to the Lord. I asked Jesus into my life and received the Baptism in the Holy Spirit. A month later, someone asked me to speak at a Full Gospel Businessmen's Fellowship. I hadn't even broken ties with the Klan.

    "Soon, word of my salvation reached the media, and a local newspaper asked for an interview. I gave it, and the next thing I knew I got a phone call from the Klan. I broke into a cold sweat when they said they were coming after me. I was scared."

    "What are you doing, Clary?" they asked when they arrived.

    Frightened for his life, Johnny Lee turned his back on God and the Church, and begged forgiveness from the Klan. He was given a second chance.

    In 1989, Johnny Lee was appointed Imperial Wizard of the KKK.

    "I wanted to unify all the hate groups - the different factions of the Klan, the Skinheads, the Patriots, the Neo-Nazis, the Militias, the Populists and the Aryan Nations - under one common organization," Johnny Lee recalled.

    He spent months arranging a national meeting of all the white supremacist groups. Finally, all the players were in place.

    What Johnny Lee didn't know, however, was that the FBI had tapped his phone and knew his plan. They arrested him on his way to the meeting.

    Without his presence, the meeting fell apart. By the time Johnny Lee was released and arrived at the rally site, the different factions were fighting among themselves.

    Johnny Lee surveyed the scene in disgust. I gave up my wife and child for these people. I gave up my life for this organization, and all they want to do is kill one another.

    On his return home, Johnny Lee faced staggering legal battles and attorney fees. He was also disillusioned.

    Where was the loyalty? he wondered. What happened to brotherhood? Wasn't the Klan supposed to be family?

    Soon afterward, Johnny Lee resigned as Imperial Wizard, and walked away from the Klan. He took a good look at himself, and didn't like what he saw.

    "I'd hit an all-time low in my life," Johnny Lee recalled. "Whenever I applied for a job, people just laughed."

    As the months passed, Johnny Lee became more and more despondent.

    Then he had a thought: Daddy escaped it all. I could go be with my dad, then I wouldn't have to worry about some Klansman putting a bullet in me.

    Johnny Lee loaded his gun and put the barrel to his head.

    The afternoon sun filtered through the closed blinds, casting tiny lines of light onto a Bible that lay gathering dust.

    The only happiness, the only peace in my life, were those few months at Crossroads Cathedral, Johnny Lee thought. But now, it's too late for me ... The dusty Bible caught Johnny Lee's eye. He put down the gun, and picked up the Bible. It fell open to Luke 15 -- the story of the prodigal son.

    Johnny Lee read the story once, then again, then a third time.

    "I know what You're trying to tell me, God," he said, weeping. "That younger son turned his back on his father and wasted his life. But when he came home, the father welcomed him. You're telling me I can come home.

    "God, I have no one else to turn to except You. I ask You to forgive me for the way I lived ... for all the hatred. Please, come into my heart, Jesus, and change me."

    In the space of a heartbeat, the weight of years of hatred melted off Johnny Lee Clary. Weeping openly, he raised his hands and worshiped God. Then he picked up the Bible and read for hours.

    "I was living in Tulsa, Oklahoma, too far to drive to Crossroads Cathedral," Johnny Lee recalls. "I visited a few churches, and although I enjoyed them very much, I knew none of them was where I was supposed to be. Each one had an all-white congregation. I knew God would never allow me to join an all-white church.

    "That week, I saw an ad in the newspaper, 'Victory Christian Center - A Church For All Races.' The next Sunday, I walked into that church and knew it was right. There were blacks, Hispanics, Asians, Filipinos, every race seemed to be represented."

    Johnny Lee joined the church.

    "This time, I didn't tell anyone who I was. Eventually, someone recognized me, and I wrote a letter to the pastor, Billy Joe Daugherty, explaining that I'd been the Imperial Wizard of the Ku Klux Klan. He wrote back, encouraging me to spend time getting grounded in God's Word.

    "God helped me get a job and, for the first time since 1982, I was happy. In addition to listening to the Word at church, I was introduced to the teaching of Kenneth and Gloria Copeland. I tuned in to their Believer's Voice of Victory program, bought their tapes and learned about faith.

    "In 1991, during one of Pastor Billy Joe's sermons, the Lord called me to preach. Billy Joe's wife, Sharon, walked over to me and announced, 'God didn't save you for you to sit in Tulsa. He's commanded you to go into the world and get people saved.' "A few weeks later, Johnny Lee heard the Lord again. Call Rev. Watts.

    He did.

    "Hello, Johnny Lee," Rev. Watts said warmly.

    "Rev. Watts, I wanted you to know that I resigned from the KKK in 1989. I gave my heart to Jesus, and I'm a member of Victory Christian Center, an interracial church. My mind is being renewed, and God has called me to preach."

    "Well, praise the Lord, son!" Rev. Watts said. "Would you do me the honor of speaking at my all-black church?"

    Johnny Lee choked back the tears. "I'd love to."

    When Johnny Lee arrived to speak at Rev. Watts' church, there were cameras and news reporters everywhere. Once inside, Johnny Lee Clary stepped up to the podium and looked out over the sea of black faces. He saw people made in the image of God, souls that Jesus had died to save. The contempt he once felt had been replaced with a love so great, so powerful, that his knees felt weak.

    This, he realized, is what real unity is all about. It was not what he had tried to do through the KKK. Real unity is only possible through love.

    Johnny Lee told his story, and what Jesus had done for him. Afterward, a teenage girl ran down the aisle. "I want to know the same Jesus you know," she said.

    As the altar filled with people wanting to know Johnny Lee's Jesus, he heard Rev. Watts weeping.

    "Do you know who that is?" Watts asked, pointing at the young girl Johnny Lee had just led to the Lord.

    "No," Johnny Lee answered.

    "That's Tia," Rev. Watts said. "She's the baby I shoved in your face that day at the radio station!"

    Johnny Lee turned to look at the beautiful face beaming at him. She was the baby he couldn't hate.

    Rev. Watts and his wife had 13 children. Nine of them had given their lives to Jesus. In the throng of people who crowded the altar that night, Johnny Lee was privileged to introduce the other four to the Lord Jesus.

    After the service, Rev. Watts and Johnny Lee embraced. An elderly black pastor wrapped his arms around a young, white, former Klansman. They both wept.

    "All those years I prayed for you!" Watts said. "I never dreamed that God would use you to bring my own children into the kingdom!"

    It's been more than six years now since Johnny Lee preached at Rev. Watts' church, and many things have changed. But both men still work untiringly - to spread the gospel and promote racial reconciliation.

    Today, Johnny Lee Clary's greatest thrill in ministry occurs when he ministers alongside Rev. Wade Watts. His second greatest thrill is being a godfather to young Tia Watts.

    Johnny Lee Clary stands amazed that one man - the man he persecuted - prayed him out of hell on earth and into heaven for eternity. Before, that kind of love was unfathomable to Johnny Lee. Now, it is a way of life.

    Pastor Johnny Lee Clary's Testimony

    Johnny Lee Clary learned to hate at a very young age. He was raised in a family filled with racism, anger, and bigotry. As a young teenager, after his father committed suicide and his mother abandoned him, Johnny found himself alone and looking for someplace to belong. At 14, he was seduced by the teachings of the notorious David Duke and the Ku Klux Klan, and he joined the organization.

    As an impressionable young man, Johnny became so enthralled with the sense of belonging and a need for “family” that he participated in KKK events as a security enforcer. His exuberance and dedication led to him being appointed as David Duke’s personal bodyguard.

    Johnny continued to advance in the organization, reveling in the feeling of finally fitting in. He went on to spend nearly 17 years in the Klan, as State Organizer and Public Relations spokesman for Imperial Wizard Bill Wilkinson of the Invisible Empire Knights of the Ku Klux Klan; then becoming Grand Dragon of the National Knights of the KKK; then Heartland Director and right-hand man to White Aryan Resistance leader Tom Metzger (by all accounts, one of the most violent men ever to preach hatred); and finally, to becoming one of the most nefarious national Klan leaders in America after being elected to the very top: Imperial Wizard (national head) of the White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, a branch that originated in Mississippi and was considered to be the most dreaded Klan faction in history (and widely acknowledged by law enforcement as the most violent and militant of all the Klan), taking responsibility for bombings, murders, and countless other crimes—all in the name of hatred and racism. To this day, the White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan are considered the real Ku Klux Klan.

    As the Klan’s national leader, during many appearances on such television programs as The Oprah Winfrey Show, the Morton Downey, Jr. Show, and many others, Johnny advocated, supported, and defended racism and violence.

    But then, the destructive mindset and lifestyle he had lived for so many years began to take its toll. Riddled with torment, angered over a false arrest in Tennessee on a weapons charge, disgusted with internal bickering between the various white supremacist organizations, and the discovery that his girlfriend was an informant for the FBI, Johnny Lee left the Klan.

    But life does not always repair so easily. Over the next few years he found himself derailed by issues related to his alledged daughter, two divorces, losing all of his friends, the FBI doubting his exit from the Klan, and struggling just to make an honest living. These challenges, combined with his feelings of guilt over the life of violence, prejudice, and hatred he had lived for so long, led Johnny to alcohol.

    On the verge of committing suicide one night, he cried out to God to deliver him from his nightmarish existence. And God answered. From that point on, Johnny Lee used his life, his experiences, and his near destruction to help others leave the same evil path that he had walked for so long.

    In 1995 Johnny was appointed by Roy Ennis to serve as West Coast Director National Director for the Congress Of Racial Equality. Since then, he has spoken at innumerable Universities, High Schools and churches, and has been a featured speaker for Youth Alive and Teen Challenge. He lectures for the FBI and other law enforcement agencies, educating officers on the mindset of white supremacists and how to best fight against domestic terrorism.

    As a renowned international speaker, he has set records for the largest crowds of any motivational lecturer in Australia other than Billy Graham, with literally thousands receiving his message of hope, healing and forgiveness for racism, low self-esteem, suicidal tendencies, and substance abuse.

    Johnny Lee Clary resides with his wife Melissa in Miami, Oklahoma. He has appeared on the Billy Graham Radio Show, on the television programs including:

    Geraldo Rivera
    Fox News
    Alan Colmes
    Sally Jesse Raphael
    Jerry Springer
    Rikki Lake
    Queen Latifah
    Montel Williams
    Phil Donahue
    A&E Investigative Reports
    ABC World News Tonight
    Bertrice Berry
    The Today Show
    A Current Affair
    The 700 Club
    CNBC The Big Idea w/ Donny Deutsch

    He has also been a regular guest on TBN’s Praise The Lord show and has been featured in America’s top newspapers and magazines, including a seven page feature story in Charisma magazine in April 1999, Moody Magazine, GuidePost Magazine [September 1998], Kenneth Copeland's Believer's Voice of Victory magazine, as well as appearances on TV programs in Australia, England, Holland, Northern Ireland, Scotland, Sweden, and Wales.

    Johnny’s book, Johnny Angel: My Life and Death at the Top of the KKK … a true story is available on his Web site.

  • masonhandshake
    I decided to post this blog below because my life and my family's life has been adversely, negatively affected by being a part of the Masonic and Eastern Stars. Yes, I know the organizations are presented as community organizations, especially to Christians.

    My life has done a 180 degree turn since I made the decision to renounce my family's historical and generational involvement in these organizations that are part of the occult. I made the decision to break the biblical, generational curses that are automatically active in your life once you join these organizations. Those in my family who have chosen not to do so still suffer to this very day.

    They shrug their repeated life mishappenings as a bad day, bad luck, or whatever they choose to pawn it off on. The Holy Spirit can speak to you better than any person. I challenge you to ask the Holy Spirit to speak to you about your involvement or your family's involvements in any society or organization that has initiations or secrets. My dearly beloved believers in the body of Christ, the Bible is very clear about this subject.

    While pastoring a church in Arkansas, I was asked to take a church that was on a spiritual and numeric decline.

    I accepted the call, and in November 1990, 1 became pastor of the First Baptist Church of Columbia, Louisiana.

    For the first few months, the chairman of the Pulpit Committee regularly visited my office telling me what I could or could not do.

    He was especially opposed to door-to-door evangelism.

    Soon I learned that a group of other men shared his views.

    They criticized most of the former pastors and even explained in detail how they had "railroaded" a full-time youth pastor out of the church.

    His removal was so slick, they said, that no one in the congregation knew what was happening.

    Their message was clear, "Do what we want, or we will do the same to you."

    They kept me so busy carrying out their plans, projects, and agendas that I had little time to
    listen to God.

    When I would move in the direction I felt God wanted, one of them would show up with all kinds of plans and projects. I was continually derailed from God's leading.

    There was small numeric growth with these activities, but the church was spiritually dead.

    Worship was oppressive, as if a dark cloud hovered over the services.

    Throughout this time the chairman of the Pulpit Committee repeatedly gave me a funny handshake. I had no clue
    what he was doing.

    Finally, God began to speak to me that I needed to listen to His direction, not the direction of these men.

    His Words were so clear, "Concentrate on worship, revival, evangelism, and making disciples."

    When I first began to emphasize worship, I sensed resistance from the Minister of Music, who proudly wore his Masonic ring and tie tack.

    Several months later, however, he went through a spiritual crisis and prayed to receive Christ.

    Two weeks later he gave his testimony in church.

    After his testimony, I stood to invite others to come forward and receive Christ.

    I was shocked at what I saw.

    Although there was rejoicing on a few faces, most were hostile - so hostile that it sent chills up and down my spine.

    As I looked at their faces, I identified them as Masons and their Eastern Star wives.

    "This is demonic," I thought. When I started two discipleship groups, there was tremendous resistance within the deacon body.

    One deacon, who was also a Mason, tried to wreck every session.

    When I emphasized a personal relationship with Jesus, he became combative and hostile.

    He argued so much during Wednesday night Bible study that I had to switch to straight preaching.

    Hungry for fellowship, I had been praying for months for a soul-winning partner.

    God answered that prayer when the Music Minister expressed a desire to go out witnessing.

    We went from house to house sharing Jesus, and quietly, without fanfare, his Masonic ring and
    tie tack disappeared.

    He told me that God had convicted him about being a Mason, and that he had formally renounced Freemasonry through a letter of resignation sent to the lodge.

    Gradually, a group in the church began to catch a vision for having a personal walk with Jesus, learning discipleship, and evangelism.

    The church services began to change.

    I could feel God's presence in every service.

    The Masons, however, were not rejoicing.

    The one who had so frequently given me the Masonic handshake, called my home and threatened me that
    if I didn't get the Minister of Music "calmed down," the deacons would "take care of him."

    As one group in the church grew closer to Jesus, another group became increasingly resistant
    toward what God was doing, and hostile toward me as pastor.

    Seven couples began forming a wall of resistance.

    Of the seven couples, two individuals were not Masons, nor members of the Eastern Star. One was a Seventh Day Adventist, and the other's father was a 32nd Degree Mason.

    During this same period, a sister church was experiencing a touch of God, with the same resistance from Masons.

    Not willing to participate in the battle, several couples left that church and came to ours.

    They openly acknowledged that they had been upset because the Masons had squelched the moving of God in that church.

    The Masonic group in our church immediately began a verbal attack against the newcomers.

    One Mason summoned me to his house and warned me that the newcomers could cause trouble in our church because of their attacks on Masonry.

    He revealed that he was a Mason and that there was not going to be a discussion of Freemasonry at First Baptist.

    He warned that a previous pastor had tried to deal with the Masonic issue in the church and had created
    problems as a result.

    I located the former pastor and learned that he had maintained a bookstore which contained several books exposing Freemasonry.

    One night someone broke into the store and stole all the books on Masonry.

    "If Freemasonry is just a harmless men's fraternity, why get upset about a few books?

    Why all the scrambling to hide books and refuse to even discuss Masonry?

    If Masonry is of God, let's bring everything out in the open and see what wonderful things God has done in Masonry.

    But if it is not of God, then there are many reasons to operate in darkness and secrecy."

    These were my thoughts.

    It was at this time we began experiencing demonic manifestations during the services.

    Usually the demons would surface when I preached on our victory over Satan through the blood of Christ.

    Any aspect of victory in the Christian life or salvation messages would stir up the demons.

    During a series of messages on revival, and the filling of the Holy Spirit, there was considerable agitation.

    All of those with demonic manifestations were either Masons or Eastern Star wives.

    Hostility toward me began to increase, all directed by the Masons.

    Deacons' meetings became nothing more than open season on the pastor.

    Again, led by the Masons.

    Finally, the man who had given me numerous Masonic handshakes came to my office, tearing into me about the spiritual atmosphere that was developing within the church.

    As he was verbally attacking me, suddenly a force, as it were, came out from him and hit me.

    Evil surrounded me. I sensed oppression.

    Within two days the oppression became deep depression.

    All that week I read books on spiritual warfare to educate myself on what was happening.

    By Sunday a black cloud of spiritual oppression had settled over the entire church.

    I told no one of my encounter with the Mason, yet several people verbally expressed that things were different in the church.

    This oppression continued for eight months, while life for me and my family was a living hell.

    It was as though sharks could smell blood and were coming in for the kill.

    Vicious attacks by the Masons were leveled against me and my family, and against all who
    supported me.

    I became so physically ill that I had to enter the hospital for two weeks.

    The church decided to give me a three-month sabbatical, which at first seemed compassionate.

    It soon was evident that this generous action was a disguise to buy time, so that the Masons could remove me from the church.

    When I returned from my sabbatical, the deacons informed me that I was no longer pastor - that the church would have to vote me back in.

    This was one of those instances in which a few deacons decided their own agenda privately.

    No one else knew what was going on.

    This is the way satan works - always in the dark, in secret, behind closed doors.

    satan lost temporarily.

    The vote was never taken and I was permitted to resume preaching.

    Two months later, at a monthly business meeting, the Masonic group succeeded in voting me out.

    The members voting against me included many who had rarely come to church, and some I had never seen before! I was not permitted to speak, and the meeting was so hostile that I thought I was going to be mobbed.

    Those who were yelling, screaming, and jumping out of their seats were one and all Masons and their Eastern Star wives.

    Shortly after leaving First Baptist I had a counseling session with Dr. Mark Bubek, who is well known both nationally and internationally for his experience in spiritual warfare.

    After hearing about the man who regularly harassed me in my office, his first question was, "Is he a Mason?"

    He confirmed that I had been under heavy demonic attack.

    I never preached against Masonry, so the attack was not a counterattack.

    It was simply that the spirit behind Freemasonry opposes anything God-sent, Christ-exalted, Spirit empowered
    that brings revival to the church.

    Yes, the Masons reacted negatively to my messages on grace.

    They were infuriated when I suggested man could not earn his way to heaven.

    They were not opposed to inviting people to church.

    They were opposed to the evangelism that was taking place in church, once the visitors arrived.

    And they were greatly offended by the fact that people in the church were going door-to-door in the community, asking people if they knew that they had eternal life.

    The Masonic message is one that abhors a Christian life that has Jesus Christ at the center.

    The Masons in Columbia regard First Baptist as an extension of their lodge.

    Well, they have preserved that extension, for today First Baptist has disintegrated into a handful of men and
    women, primarily the Masonic and Eastern Star group.

    The price of their success was the destruction of a house of God, and the persecution of its pastor and many God-fearing people.

    Such is the spirit and purpose of Freemasonry.

    What are pastors to do? First, take a stand on Freemasonry. Second, write your position in a letter and mail it to your
    national headquarters.

  • health

    Do you take prescription meds? Does someone you love take prescription meds? Did you know that properly prescribed medication is the number three cause of death in USA according to the American Journal of Medicine?

    In 2003, my cancer test came back 80% positive and I asked The Holy Spirit to help me get through this and if He did, I would change.

    It's 2009, and I'm still keeping my word.

    When I told the Lord I'd change, I meant:

    1) change the food I purchase and the food I eat; LocalHarvest.org can help you access local organic farms.

    2) change how I treat my body internally;

    3) change how I treat my body externally through daily exercise; I eat every day, therefore, I exercise every day.

    4) not change in keeping my body sanctified as a living sacrifice for the Lord, which includes sexual morality whether you are married or single.

    5) change by educating myself on the origins of the food I purchase; You understand our food supply in America is severely contaminated.

    6) change by switching to natural herbs instead of prescription medication; for every thing that could possibly be wrong with the human body, internally, externally or mentally, the Lord provided an herb for it that's still available today. I'm a distributor for Pure Herbs and this has changed my life. For example, I used to suffer from sinus infections every six weeks. I may have one sinus infection a year, but no more. In 2009, I chose to address the spiritual roots of my sinus infection.

    7) and change about by getting off of prescription medications.

    Three Web sites that changed my life are www.BeInHealth.com,
    www.HAcres.com, www.DrDay.com and www.NotMilk.com.

    Yesterday, 6.15.09, I spoke with my mom who is trying to eradicate her high blood pressure.

    I shared with mom please do NOT overlook the spiritual side of your high blood pressure or any illness whether life threatening or a functional illness.

    Almost everybody in my mom's family had or has high blood pressure [not me, I broke the generational curse off of me and the children I have to come].

    A generational curse is not difficult to break.

    You're familiar with the scriptures that repeat many times in the Bible, satan comes to steal, kill and destroy.

    It's real and active in every believers life.

    The question is how active or passive are you in YOUR life by being an offensive participant to experience the promises of an abundant life.

    The primary mode of operation satan uses to destroy, steal and kill YOU, your family, your church members and your friends is through attacking your body.

    For some satan uses illness.
    For some satan uses drugs.
    For some satan uses sex.
    For some satan uses mental torment.
    For some satan uses food or the lack thereof.
    For some satan uses laziness or the lack of exercise.

    You see the pattern, right?

    You understand that each of the things listed above are not simply coincidence, but are controlled [unseen] by the demonic.

    You are familiar that with repeated scriptures that boldly declare the issues we wrestle with are rooted in the unseen evil, demonic, principalities.

    So, the operative question is, are you dealing with your issues, including your health issues, by eradicating them also on a spiritual level?

    You know what I don't like about satan is that he's not even that clever.

    His intelligence quota is pretty low, because he doesn't even try new stuff.

    Think about it, think about how many things are repeated in your family throughout the generations.

    Even as Christians, we tend to say comments like the following:

    "I don't know what's wrong with that boy."

    "She ought to know better, no good will come of this."

    "We raised them in the church, so they know the truth; I just can't get through."

    "The men in the family just can't seem to make a go of it."

    "Is he is jail again? He ought to stop that and take care of his family."

    "Has she had another baby out of wedlock? So how many is it now."

    Okay, so what's my point here.

    Many times we completely overlook the spiritual in our day-to-day lives.

    The active operation of generational curses simply and realistically explains many of the common statements we all hear in our families weekly.

    Now, what I wrote above, are the things that are seen.

    As you know, many of us wrestle with things are are unseen, in our minds, things we are too ashamed to let others know including spouses, children, parents and church members.

    Satan's done a good job keeping Christians focused on the symptoms and the natural, instead of being focused on eradicating the [spiritual] roots of our issues, even health issues.

    By putting an axe to the spiritual roots, then the symptoms are forced to die.

    As some of you know, I graduated in May 2009 from an int'l school for biblical healing and deliverance.

    I learned that the liver is the major organ that filters our impurities.

    I know none of us in class had ever cleaned our liver.

    Most issues in the kidney and gall bladder starts in the liver, but doctors will not share that out.

    Why, because the medical profession typically treats symptons and not the roots of your issues.

    If they treated the roots of your issues, then you would not need to come back or continue to get all those prescriptions refilled for the rest of your life.

    Oh -- just seems like there's a stream of slight greed or self-serving in that.

    One of my teachers in school, who is 72 years old, is the most healthiest person I know personally.

    He said when he cleaned his liver, he did 3 liver cleanses in a row.

    He passed more than 2,000 liver stones [no they don't hurt when passing because they are soft].

    If we don't clean our liver, the bioducts in our liver get clogged -- they have no choice.

    If you're interested, this is the Web site for the cleanses -
    www.drclark.net.

    www.LocalHarvest.org is where you can find local organic farmers for your food.

    A More Excellent Way is a book that must be in every library; you can order it here.
    The author is simply a gift from God to the Christian community. He and this book has helped many, many, many Christians -- that's all I know to say.

    If you're not a member, you can join this online Healed People, Heal People community for free here. You'll receive regular updates of encouragement wrapped in biblical truths.

    Please know that you can have lasting, healing and deliverance from any issue today. It's available and the Lord is simply waiting for you to surrender and bring your issues to the cross.

  • halloween

    By Redge Peifer

    People everywhere carve out pumpkin faces, hang skeletons on their walls, buy costumes … getting ready for devil’s night and, of course, halloween. Do you know where halloween originated?

    Halloween

    The een in the word Halloween refers to the een or evening before the day known as All Saints Day. But, what kind of saints were these? The saints of the Bible. No, All Saints Day was originally a festival honoring the druid priests who were into the occult and who were priests of satan.

    The Druids And Human Sacrifice

    Halloween has clear connections with their primitive and savage rituals in 2 BC [the pre-Roman, pre-Christian Celtic communities of northern and western Europe, especially in France [Gaul], Britain, Ireland, Scotland and Wales. They were the builders of Stonehenge where they would bring humans to be sacrificed in Britain.

    The druids worshipped pagan gods that included the sun god, the earth mother goddess and Sambain [lord of the dead]. Stonehedge was constructed to calculate the sun’s movements and then determine the most suitable day to worship the earth mother goddess – by the sacrifice of a human! The date selected was October 31, halloween! Think about it.

    Reincarnation

    The druids believed in reincarnation that is contrary to the teaching of the Bible. Hebrews 9:27 reads, And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment. According to their religion, the god Sambain judged the souls and decreed in what form their existence was to continue whether in the body of a human or in an animal. They believed that sinful souls of those who had died during the year had been relegated to the bodies of animals and through various gifts and sacrifices, their sins could be forgiven and the souls freed to claim a heavenly reward. It was common for horses to be sacrificed, but there were also a lot of human sacrificed.

    Men, mostly criminal, but not all – were imprisoned in wicker and thatch cages shaped like animals or giants. The druid priest set fire to these cages and the men were burned to death. They eventually included women and children in their horrible sacrifices.

    Sacrifice Of Children

    Please note from the Bible that Molech is the demon directly associated with the sacrifice of children. Molech was the Canaanite god of fire. To bring this more current, beloved reader, Molech is the demon directly associated with abortions. In the Bible, Molech was a demon god, that’s still active today, who demanded the sacrifice of living children. As Christians, we understand that children are living at the moment of conception. Thus, abortions are the killing or sacrifice of living children.

    They not only sacrificed unto false gods, but the druid rituals included eventually direct human sacrifices to the devil. They acknowledged him and worshipped him and multitudes of men, women and the little children were murdered.

    Thou shalt have no other gods before Me.
    Exodus 20:3

    And he ordained him priests for the high places, and for the devils, and for the calves which he had made.
    II Chronicles 11:15

    And he caused his children to pass through the fire in the valley of the son of Hinnom; also he observed times, and used enchantments, and used witchcraft, and dealt with a familiar spirit, and with wizards: he wrought much evil in the sight of the Lord, to provoke him to anger.
    II Chronicles 33:6

    The Pumpkin

    The men, women, or children to be sacrificed on halloween would simply be selected by the druids. They would leave a pumpkin on the doorstep of the house to replace the victim and to let the other members of the family know that no one else would be harmed. Now, every time you look at a pumpkin on somebody’s front porch, you’ll know what it really represents.

    If you, your family, your friends or your church members have engaged in these occult practices, you should know you have opened the door to the occult. No one said that that satan or his demons play fair. If you open the door to the occult, then the respective demons enter. Demons do not leave because you come into knowledge. The Bible is very clear on how to break strongholds. The Bible is very clear about how to take of care demonic oppression in Christians. I strongly suggest you do so ... else you, your family, your friends or your church members are living with the presence of demonic influence. I'm more than pleased to answer any questions you may have. Please post your comments.

  • freefrommasturbation

    Free at last, free at last … thank God Almighty I’m free at last! I clearly remember that sunny Saturday almost 15 years ago. It was the day my 20-year masturbation addiction finally died.

    Instead of sleeping in I got up early, determined to rake and bag a yard full of leaves. Around noon I was sweaty and tired, but felt accomplished as I finished twist-tying and hauling the last heavy bag to the sidewalk for pickup.

    Afterward a much-needed shower, my thoughts turned to relaxing in bed with a book or even dozing off. As I lay there reading, my still-damp hair cooling the back of my neck, that old familiar urge to satisfy myself suddenly visited. Quickly I thought of how many times in the past weeks I had said no to the urge and how good I had felt about these victories. Not wanting to lose any ground I had gained, I cried out to God for help and just as quickly I heard His still, small Voice, Take a walk.

    Much as I didn’t want to go back out into the heat and humidity after feeling so cool and clean, I knew that I needed to obey because the conditions were ripe for a fall. I forced myself up, put on some clean, comfortable clothes and called my dog who was always up for a walk. I don’t remember anything exceptional about that walk except that later I realized it really was my final victory lap in a very long and frustrating race. Yeah! The enemy of my soul had finally lost in yet another area and God and I had finally won!

    So how did masturbation get such power over me that I was hooked for two decades? Well, it all started when I was a kid -- where many life-controlling habits, good and bad, have their roots. As a pre-teen a friend loaned me a XXX-rated paperback and I, unwisely, read the raunchy rag. It planted some really rotten seeds in my mind and heart that years later sprouted into a garden of weeds. One of those weeds was masturbation.

    Nothing happened for five years. Then one day while I was alone -- and lonely -- [not a good combination, to say the least] the pornographic words [and resultant images] that had been imprinted on my mind revisited my thoughts and I bought their dumb lies! I listened to the thoughts telling me to just try it and rationalized what could just trying it’ hurt? A lot.

     

    Almost instantly I got high on a feeling [as the song goes], which led to another good feeling episode, then another and another till this little secret became a monthly, then a weekly, and sometimes a daily routine. I wanted it yet I hated it, always fearful of getting caught. Then what?! I couldn’t bear the thought! But then I couldn’t stop either ‘cause the urge was too strong by now. Yuk! I was stuck!

    And wouldn’t you know it, this insatiable lust brought its friends who soon became part of my persona [or so it seemed]: depression, roller coaster emotions, sarcasm, mocking, self-hate, and a bunch of other unsavory emotions. Yeah, right, just try it! Forget that! Try it and get hooked - by a crook [The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy John 10:10 reads.] is more like it!

     

    Sometime after I got hooked I overheard someone say that the woman who used to live in the room where my addiction began What I didn’t know when I had engaged in some really perverted sex acts. started this supposedly innocent, feel good habit is that I, who had already been seeded with porn trash five years earlier, had unknowingly walked into a major trap/ambush that further stole my innocence and other beautiful gifts God meant for me to enjoy -- plus take heaps of humility to shed.

    So now you know how I got hooked. Let’s move on to the good part - how I got free - and how you can too! In a word: accountability. I remembered the power of this amazing tool from when I attended an Anonymous program that helped me dump another bad habit -- overeating.

     

    The leader at one particular meeting I attended told the group that if the urge to pig out came, the solution was to phone someone in the Anonymous group. Wouldn’t ya know it, a few days later I needed that advice. I bravely got up the courage to call the number and guess what? It worked! With my pig out food in front of me and my anonymous friend on the line, I told her what I was about to do and sort of challenged her to talk me out of it.


    She didn’t freak out or get offended, she just asked me what had recently happened. [Later I learned it was to reveal what triggered my binge so that she could help me avoid future set-ups and upsets]. Then she listened, which helped a lot. After dumping a bunch of pain into her ear, I suddenly realized that I was breathing more easily and no longer wanted to stuff my face with junk food when I wasn’t even hungry! It was amazing! I couldn’t care less about pigging out now because I was feeling something far better -- self respect! Cool! So I told her that then thanked her and threw the rest of the junk food away.

    It wasn’t exactly that way with getting free from masturbation, but the whole ‘blowing the lid off the shame thing’ was almost identical. I had said I wanted to get free for quite awhile, but when the temptation to satisfy myself came - usually around the time of my monthly cycle - I would make excuses and once again fall.


    It seemed like fantasy had a lot to do with it too, and not always sexual fantasies either. Sometimes living-in-the- future-fantasies, like day dreaming about what a fairytale life I was going to have … some day. But once I climaxed, the fantasies and the good feelings both disappeared and I went back to my roller coaster life with some exciting ups, but also a ton of painful downs.

    Then I got into relationship with a person -- who later became my spouse. While he also had a bunch of addictive habits -- this wasn’t one of them and he didn’t judge me -- at least not in this area. [Now between us, unless you’re married to someone who won’t condemn you, make sure your accountability partner isn’t someone [male or female] who is going to tempt you to sin sexually or in other ways].

    So one day after falling … again, I decided to try the accountability thing that had worked with overeating. And guess what? It worked! Now, please understand, it took a lot of courage to admit to him what I had just done [masturbated], but I really wanted to get free. Because of this strong desire for freedom, I became willing to pay the price [of exposing my shame] and I did.

    When I confessed that first time I was really embarrassed and I sheepishly used a code word that I knew we’d both understood. Inside I braced myself for a look [of condemnation], a sarcastic remark [I sure had said a bunch of them!] or a lecture, but instead received a gift. Very simply and kindly he said, I forgive you.

     

    Wow, did that feel good! Before he could change his mind or say anything else I simply accepted his gift, got up and joyfully went on with my life. Wow, I remember thinking, I could get hooked on that feeling!

    As good as that high was, it only lasted a few days and then the M-demons returned to tempt me again. Yup, I gave in … again. Sigh. Bummer! But, inside I knew that I was gaining ground. Why? Because I knew I had a tool [accountability] that I could use to win -- if only I would use it. So, the next time the urge came, I told myself that if I gave in I would have to confess. I did fall … but I also confessed! And you know what? It worked!

     

    The urge to masturbate became less and less with each passing month because I used this have to confess approach, which made me think twice before falling again. Then finally I was able to confess before falling and then eventually not fall at all! I strongly believe that because the demons in me knew that I was going to expose them to the Light [Jesus said in John 8:12, I am the Light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.

     

    Like scattering roaches that hate being exposed to the light, they hid [quieted down] and eventually left. They had lost their captive [me] because they saw that I wasn’t giving them any more agreement or legal ground. From that sunny Saturday to today -- almost 15 years -- I AM FREE!

    I have to give God and my forgiving, patient accountability partner a lot of credit as it took me about 10 years from the first time I first confessed this shameful habit to finally get and stay 100% free. Another really big help in overcoming this and other addictive behaviors was praying A LOT in the Holy Spirit or praying in tongues, [aka one’s heavenly prayer language].

    Here’s some really good scriptures you can look up about this wonderful gift: Luke 11: 9-13; Acts 2; I Corinthians 14: 2, 18; and Jude 1:20. If you don’t have this awesome, powerful gift, I HIGHLY recommend you seek God to receive it because when you pray in the spirit, you pray beyond your own understanding [read Romans 8:26 - 28] and you allow the Holy Spirit to pray through you. He gives you all sorts of help in overcoming this and any other shameful habits because God doesn’t want you addicted to anything or anyone but Him. He’s so awesome!

    Also, I know that some Christian leaders say that masturbation is not so bad and they downplay its effects, but if you’ve ever been hooked, like I was, you know it’s such bondage! One leader, however, whose words really did help me said this, I’ve never known anyone who wanted to move on in the things of God who didn’t have to deal with this issue [referring to masturbation] if it was a problem for them. I agree.

     

    There are all sorts of rotten spirits that come with this package. One of them is independence: I don’t need men or women. I can satisfy myself is the attitude. Wrong! God made us to be interdependent, not independent. We do need each other -- a lot more than we sometimes think. Some of the other trashy spirits that often hang out with masturbation are uncleanness, lust, shame, self-hatred, mistrust, fear, fantasy lust, perversion, self-pity, sarcasm, mocking and the victim and predator spirits. Yuk!

     

    You don’t want that mess and God sure doesn’t want it for you either! So get honest with yourself and Him and confess the fantasy and selfishness [lust is selfish; love is selfless] as sin and ask Him to show you if there is anyone [including yourself] that you need to forgive so that you can really be really free. Forgive? Yes, forgive.

     

    You see, what I realized is that I could have gotten free a lot sooner if I had known that “the axe is laid unto the root of the trees” [see Matthew 3:10]. But I do now and so can you!! Also, ask Him to guide you to at least one other trusted human being who can help you as an accountability partner. He will and you too can get and stay free!

    Also, there are some really helpful books. One that rocked my world is The Broken Image [ISBN: 0-8010-5334-X], by Leanne Payne. On pages 77 - 81 she shares about a man named Randy, an artist, who struggled with habitual masturbation and how it inhibited not only his personal life, but also his artistic endeavors.

     

    This really made sense to me because soon after that sunny Saturday when I got fully and finally free [although it was the many coming clean times before that wonderful day that eventually led to my final freedom], I started writing poetry and joyfully dancing before God. And it was really cool ‘cause an artist friend of mine told me that she saw a real increase in my level of creativity. Another book that some friends highly recommended, but which I haven’t read is, Single, Saved and Having Sex by Ty Adams, [ISBN: 0-9740132-0-X].

    I know it’s not easy to fess up, but it is so freeing and so necessary if you want to really enjoy your life and not be in bondage to this or other addictive habits. May I pray for you?

    Lord Jesus, you know everything about this person and you love him/her deeply. You know that he/she really wants freedom from this addiction or he/she wouldn’t be reading this right now. You set me free and You “do not show favoritism” [read Acts 10:34] so I ask you to give them this marvelous gift of freedom too. Help them recognize that You’re a good God, a loving Daddy and a Friend who wants to help them to be all they can be. Daddy, you gave me the courage and ability to obey I Corinthians 6:18, which reads flee from sexual immorality.

     

    All other sins a man commits are outside his body, but he who sins sexually sins against his own body. So please give them the peace of God, which passes all understanding too [read Philippians 4:7]. Would you also guide them to people and places where they can find one or more trusted accountability partner(s) so they too can get and stay free and then help others do the same? Thank You, Lord! I love and trust You to do what you promised in Your word: … and whoever comes to me I will never drive away.” [read John 6:37].

    In the might and marvelous name of Jesus Christ,

    Amen! [which means, So be it!]

    Victim and Predator Spirit Prayer That You Can Pray

    I give you permission God, to remove any and all traces of victim and predator spirit and I declare to you God that I need your strength and guidance to change.

    I repent of any actions on my part of submitting wrongfully to any predator spirit in any person.

    I repent of giving them authority over me. Lord Jesus, please forgive me.

    I fire every authority figure and person, who has preyed on me.

    Every teacher, mentor, boss, pastor, peer, babysitter and family member.

    I forgive everyone who has used me as a victim.

    I declare today that I am no longer a victim, or a predators’ puppet.

    I sever myself, body, soul, and spirit, from every ungodly attachment that has been made between myself and any predator.

    I take back from any predator, all wrong power and authority that I gave them over myself, that would determine a wrong identity in me, or any ungodly response. I give that authority back to the Lord Jesus, who really determines my identity and destiny.

    Where I have been a predator, I repent of any action and loose any control I have had over anyone in regard to that area. Please forgive me Jesus.

    I place You Jesus back on the throne of my heart.

    I declare victory over failure. I declare that I shall have dominion over my life, my circumstances and my responsibilities as appointed to me by the Lord Jesus, amen.
