Most RESCUE members have come to terms with the fact that while in church, they have had a false conversion. So some members are waiting for salvation. In the back of your minds, some come into deliverance considering that their case is impossible.
Jesus Christ of Nazareth told the rich young ruler that the salvation of a rich man was like trying to put a camel through the eye of a needle—in other words, with man it is impossible. Such is the case with me even though wealth was not my issue. A devout heathen who refused to go to church, read the bible, or pray and who believed that Jesus Christ was a myth on a par with Santa Claus, my case was a certain impossibility for man. Therefore, my own salvation on Monday, March 29, 1977 at about 4pm is a testament to how God alone can put a camel through the eye of a needle. The Lord did for me what was impossible for man to accomplish with his ministries, a tract or even a sermon. I was an atheist, not looking for a being I did not believe existed.
I suspect he can block God temporarily. nevertheless, God always has a plan and a strategy to unblock what is blocked where it comes to His elect. Deliverance counseling is the plan that he gave to me for telephone
When I developed THIS Christian Coaching model back in 2002, called I explained the reason for its existence in the book “FACES OF THE RELIGIOUS DEMON: Freedom Through Deliverance Counseling.” SHORTLY THEREAFTER, WHILE READING War on the Saints” FOR THE FIRST TIME, . I found a quote written at least 100 years ago that explains THE foundational premise for deliverance counseling. So here is the phenomenal quote of woman of God, Jessie Penn-Lewis:
“It has been thought almost universally, that the only way to deal with demon possession is by casting out the evil spirit, by some divinely equipped believer. But facts prove that this method is not always successful, for though the diagnosis of the intruder’s presence may be correct yet THE GROUND THAT GAVE IT OCCUPATION CANNOT BE CAST OUT; and unless the ground is dealt with, no full relief can be obtained, or change seen, in the majority of cases.”
In others, when the evil spirit apparently departs, it must not be concluded that the person is entirely free, for it may be that what has occurred is only THAT A PARTICULAR MANIFESTATION HAS CEASED, and it is not unlikely that another manifestation may appear; possibly not a visible one, or one easily perceived or detected, but recognizable by ANY WHO HAVE LEARNED TO DISCRIMINATE between the workings of evil spirits, and those which are human or divine.
It is possible also to suppress a certain manifestation for a time, and not entirely get rid of it; and the SAME manifestation may return again and again in DIFFERENT GUISE, UNLESS THE GROUND IS DEALT WITH.
Where the demon has a distinctive personality that is different and even contrary to its captive, its presence is obvious. So when it is cast out, the captive knows he or she is free because the relief is immediate.
Deliverance counseling also includes pastoral counseling. Once the spiritual damage incurred while a churchgoer has been overcome, RESCUE members who are in regular phone sessions work on serious life challenges or difficult life-cycle transitions that may be taxing their current ability to live victoriously. Examples of serious life challenges can be dealing with chronic work-related stressors; career issues; financial problems; health issues or a recent health diagnosis; family or parent/child conflict; cultural assimilation; and academic issues. Examples of difficult life-cycle related transitions can be the death of a family member or friend; the ending of a romantic relationship or close friendship; family/couple changes related to the addition of a child; getting married or divorced; caregiving for loved ones due to illness or disability; and decision-making challenges related to these life choices. These are just some of the issues I address with RESCUE members, and there are more that I have not covered here like drug and sexual problems as examples.
We now have three RESCUE groups with WordPress. They are so private that they don’t even show up on the search engines and you must have a password of your own to enter them, We call them RESCUE Green, Blue and Red or 1, 2 and 3.
The RESCUE WordPress is a Christian fellowship where we use a private forum to share what we are learning on a variety of spiritual topics. It helps you begin to uncover many areas where you may have been bound or deceived spiritually by the wiles of the enemy. We post as we do here, and then everyone comments with their thoughts. We learn from each other, mainly as we share how our experiences in dealing with being deceived by the enemy (through religion and the occult) have helped enlighten us, and begin to see how the enemy operates, and how the Holy Spirit has been working to help us see the TRUTH, as how it relates to the topic of discussion. RESCUE is the place where like James stated “confess your faults one †o another, so that you might be healed.”
As such, We gain tools to fight the enemy. We support one another in our spiritual battles, and provide each other with advice on how to handle particular spiritual situations. It is basically targeted as our ministry to those who have been called out of the organized church or have been in demonic torment.
All of the coaches in the header above and Pastor Pam are in the forum every day according to our own schedules. Only people who fit a prescribed profile are allowed in, and each group is intentially small. The goal is to help one another grow in truth, and to provide a sense of fellowship so that you know you are not alone, but instead in fellowship with others who may share some of the same struggles as you, or can somehow relate to your experiences. Confidential information is not revealed, so you can be anonymous. We grow in truth, and in turn, help others grow in truth.
