SRA and the Forbidden Realms of Spirit
I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will show you things to come (John 16:12,13).
Those of us who minister to satanically ritually abused persons see many things of a spiritual nature for which we have no explanation. Abused persons often don’t understand the spiritual ramifications of their experience either—they just know they were abused and that they see and hear things other people don’t. Most of them would be a lot happier if they didn’t see and hear the things they do—demons appear to them, confusing voices speak to them, they may feel evil spirit beings in, on and around their body—all of these things are not pleasant.
There is a flip side to all this misery, however. When they are with a Christian minister who calls upon the presence of Jesus to come and minister to them, they are able to perceive Him in a dimension those of us who were not abused don’t experience. Many of them actually see Jesus, hear his voice and feel his touch. It becomes obvious that there is a realm of spirit that people in satanic cults have entered that is foreign to most Christians.
Participation in spiritual experiences forbidden by God such as witchcraft, wizardry, séances, fortune telling, satanic rituals, etc. opens up this forbidden realm. All of us have within us a hunger for the supernatural. God intended for this hunger to lead us to Him. All too often people succumb to the temptation to seek out someone who purportedly has “gifts” of ESP, clairvoyance, etc. which are merely demons moving through certain individuals in order to deceive and entrap others. Participation in any of these activities causes us to pick up demons that begin to open our spiritual eyes to see into forbidden areas of spirit that I believe God intended only for his great church of the end times.
Jesus said, “I have many things to say unto you, but you cannot bear them now.” The church of the end times will hear many of these things as they come into the fullness of Christ. Paul teaches in Ephesians 4, “And he gave some, apostles; and some, prophets; and some, evangelists; and some, pastors and teachers for the perfecting of the saints, for the work of the ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ: till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ.” Entering into the fullness of Christ will bring us into a realm of power and supernatural that far exceeds anything any Satanist ever dreamed of.
The fact that some have entered into something unrighteously reveals to the rest of us that there is something there to be entered. If it is there, it must have been created by God because Satan cannot create anything. He only perverts and distorts the good things created by God. If God created it, He intended it for good. There is a realm of supernatural waiting for the church of the end times. In order to enter this realm of spirit, we must die to the things of this world and walk in purity and holiness. Only then will God permit us to enter this spiritual realm. To enter before we are perfected in Him would only open us to demonic deception. Only God can lead us in.
God has many things to show us but most of us are too carnal at this point to receive them. Paul says in 1 Corinthians, “And I, brethren, could not speak unto you as unto spiritual, but as unto carnal, even as unto babes in Christ. I have fed you with milk, and not with meat: for hitherto ye were not able to bear it, neither yet now are ye able. For ye are yet carnal: for whereas there is among you envying, and strife, and divisions, are ye not carnal, and walk as men?”
When we Christians are willing to seek God with our whole heart by spending lengthy daily time in prayer and study (not merely reading) of the Word, walking in obedience and not loving the world, the supernatural of God becomes very evident. Being a Christian is the most exciting experience any person could ever hope for, but all too many Christians seem to have no testimony of the astounding, supernatural experiences that happen regularly when we walk closely with Christ.
When we minister to satanically ritually abused persons we begin to see, through their eyes, things that others don’t see. We become aware of the depths of evil going on in our society right under our noses. We see the unwillingness of many persons to believe this is actually happening. In other words, we begin to see beneath the surface of society. We have information others don’t have and don’t want to have.
As our eyes are opened to these things (and this is a righteous opening of our eyes because we are not directly seeking cult experiences but only helping those abused by them) we see how totally wicked demons are as are they manifest in our abused friends. We actually SEE that the word of God is the sword of the Spirit. We quote Scriptures and see the demons flee from our abused friends in terror. We speak the name of Jesus, and watch them writhe and sneer in disgust and terror at the power of that Name.
Not only do we see demons as revealed by those to whom we minister, but we also see Jesus in a way others do not see Him. My satanically ritually abused friends tell me of His love as little child alters are taken by Jesus, gently washed in the sparkling waterfalls of heaven and clothed in beautiful white dresses. Perhaps He gives them a little kitten to hold or a gentle belled lamb to pet. One who fears the dark may be given a flashlight or perhaps granted to see a large guardian angel watching over her. The glimpses of Jesus we see through those who have been satanically ritually abused are very precious indeed. We are allowed to see into realms of spirit that would otherwise be closed to us.
One of the gifts God gives to those who are willing to make the sacrifices necessary to minister to satanically ritually abused persons consists of these glimpses into the forbidden spirit world. We must be careful to balance this gift with another precious gift our Father wants to give us—the gift of seeing beneath the surface of His Word. Our seeing beneath the superficiality of our society and our brief observations of spiritual phenomena need to be balanced with deep, intense study of God’s Word. This will help insure that we don’t become deceived by the mystifying spiritual things we hear and see through the abused persons we are helping.
Please check this web site for my article on Bible Study Principles to learn more about in-depth Bible study. These are the end times we are living in! God is loosening the seals from His Word and inviting us to open them for ourselves. He has much to reveal to us!
Please see my article entitled, “The Gadarene Demoniac” under the heading of “Satanic Ritual Abuse in the New Testament” as an example of how deep Bible study can reveal truths about satanic ritual abuse that lie just beneath the surface.
